The modus vivendi of this blog is plainly self explanatory. Pathetically,'progressives' regularly promote implausable, impractical or plainly asinine ideas. Who but socialists could for decades abuse the term 'economic rationalism' - without humiliation? THIS GOES TO THE VERY HEART OF ECONOMIC POLICY AND RATIONAL GOVERNMENT: TO WIT TO NOT CRITICIZE THE CONSERVATIVES AS BEING 'RATIONAL'!

NBN LUNACY UPDATE
THE LUNATICS OF THE LEFT HAVE NO PRIDE IN TODAY BLAMING THE ABBOTT GOVERNMENT RE THEIR [LABOR'S] WORST MESS IN PURELY MONETARY TERMS!
LOOK BELOW LINK AND THE UNANSWERED 2010 correspondence with THE GADGET GUY AND ABC HQTRS!
I heard you yesterday on ABC Radio 774 with
Lindy Burns discussing at length selected aspects of Labor's newly released
business plan re the NBN white elephant. LINDY ADDED GRAVITAS TO YOUR OPINION BY
SUGGESTING THAT ''ABBOT HAS NOT GOT A LEG TO STAND ON'' you agreed!
I concentrate essentially on merely what you
deemed to be important in your on - air fulminations on Stephen Conroy's latest
dissembling re the future -
/ 39 Billion NBN - merely latest of Labor's disasters of probably 45 asinine
projects / AKA running the country over the last 3 years or so.
*[Refer to AM today 8.10 am Radio National! There must be other
gems imbeddeed in AM that you will have to check the transcript for
If you make it for another 40 years - you will
have to send me a message to the nether world: I am 63 years
old - and at best will surely be ga gaby the year
For now - kindly tell me as well as you
can manage - as below. Could you please find it in your day in 2050 to send me a
message: 'YOU WERE RIGHT / I WAS RIGHT'?
If you are the expert in matters technology- as
implied by your nom de business - and via your commentary on air - how do you so
confidently predict 40 years! How dare you do this - when you must know there is
a commonly accepted idea that the sum of human knowledge doubles every 18
Now this may not be entirely correct - may even
be an urban myth - but surely not even you would deny that even
as I type these words - with every keystroke - it is becoming more likely that
broadband / NBN / whatever is / going to be obviated by WIRELESS technology. It
seems inellegant for you to espouse the idea that in 40 years time the NBN will
remain viable - when such powerful case can be mounted NOW!! Or are you
suggesting that mega - revolutionizing of EVERYTHING will happen to everythig
but the NBN??! Get real!
Never mind the above - which blows your argument
into the either. How about your venture into matters medical? YOU SAID: that
doctors will be able to monitor patients via the internet. You mentioned XRAY
assesment done via NBN over the net.'' This is simply not your expertise,
Let us us assume that you were refering to a
patient in a country town. This person goes into a main centre - say Townville
or Brisbane - gets an Xray done then goes home to attack the NBN to send the
image to his doctor - say in Townsville. [OOPS - why would he do that he was
just there!? ] So he has a medico in Perth? OK - let us stay with Brisbane.
Otherwise you may think I am mocking you.
You may care to note that main centre hospitals
do have high speed broadband - or will have it au natural; not that you need it
to analyze Xrays - for many reasons outside your ken. Some listed above - merely
in the realm of simple logistics. Too much for here....
So; this is flummery, sir - used by ignorant
politicians and their acolytes with political dogma trying to justify bad
Shall I leave this aspect of your commentary? I
really do not want to go into a complete pre emptive autopsy of Conroy's
raison d'etre. No time. It will be resurrected WELL - BEFORE
Let us go to your tangent of how the world of
Education will be revolutionized by littlies being able to use the NBN to such
tremendous advantage. Do you really think that major schools do not
automatically are obviated? No time to go into this either; but your EDUCATION
REVOLUTION - another of Julia's delusions were already demonstrated in the
schools' hall debacle. It is a manifest farce to even think of wasting time on
It does not leave much else, Peter. Just this:
frequently one hears about the paucity of comparative services in country towns.
this is frequently espoused by politicians who seek to garner support from
aggrarian socialists and a disparate range ogf political ignoramasses as a
justification for the NBN being rolled out to supplement
So let us see if you understand: country folk
enjoy their lifestyle, mega - cheap lifestyle and tiny property prices - but
they demand a Chadstone - style shopping centre, major hospitals and - oh yes -
THE NBN as well!! You get it? A contradiction - in terms - innately unfair,
absurd and worse; it is the sort of logical thing socialists immolate without
ever understanding it. Vale economic Irrationalism: do not get me
