Ludicrous Police State Requirements over Online Purchases

On 6 October 2014, I tried to purchase a carpet cleaning machine from Harvey Normans Online. I have an elderly mother who is almost blind, she is deaf and stroke-affected as well as suffering from dementia. I do not have a car, nor do I drive. A friend of mine and I often exchange favours; he collects items and I deal with his legal problems for free or cook for him. I was going to ask this friend if he would be able to collect the carpet cleaning machine for me. I did not wish to have to wait in as last time Harvey Norman made a delivery, their less than intelligent driver, instead of delivering the item to the address specified, attempted delivery through the garage complex around the corner and placed a card in my letterbox, thus requiring me to retrieve the item from the Post Office.

I discovered that Harvey Norman will only allow the person who purchases the item to collect the item from the store. Collection requires either the production of a passport, drivers’ licence or birth certificate: Why does the store require bank level ID of the purchaser in order to collect an item that has already been paid for with a credit card? Why are department stores now insisting on onerous requirements to simply collect purchased items? If this stupid policy persists they will kill off online sales!

I decided not to purchase from Harvey Norman’s because of their stupid, ill-conceived policy but from the Good Guys instead who were far more reasonable but I note that they too insisted on the production of a drivers’ licence, passport or birth certificate. The Big Brother Surveillance State has intruded to the extent that one can no longer get help from a friend without onerous ID requirements when they have a invalid mother – how stupid is that?

Why is this happening? Why are Department Stores now insisting on stupid security requirements?

It’s the end of the world as we know it – More Rubbish on Anthropogenic Climate Change

The following article appeared briefly in the Sydney Morning Herald on 3.12.12:

It’s the end of the world as we know it

Date Accessed: 3.12.12

I thought that since Ben Cubby is spewing out more rubbish on anthropogenic climate change, I have better let people know about the facts of the matter because what Ben Cubby is stating is unscientific assertions that are based on a false premise.  The false premise is that CO2 drives global temperature.  It is global temperature that drives CO2 levels.

Cubby is also stating that global temperature is increasing, that is false also.  There hasn’t been a statistically significant increase in global temperature in the last 16 years!  See the following reference:
Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it
The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures
This means that the ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996

The predictions made in the Cubby article use computer models, so I’ll state it again because the message never seems to reach people like him.  You cannot predict the climate using weather models as it is impossible to predict the weather more than a fortnight ahead with any degree of accuracy.

“It has recently been calculated that to produce an accurate forecast of the climate even as little as ten years ahead would require all of the world’s computers to run not for ten years but for 100 billion billion billion years. The age of the universe is only 13.7 billion years. So anyone who claims that any computer model can produce reliable results 100 years ahead is making a claim that goes not only well beyond the laws of mathematics, as explained by Lorenz, but also well beyond the capacity of today’s computers.”

(See Top Rocket Scientist: No Evidence CO2 Causes Global Warming
Alex Jones Infowars)

The Cubby article about the end of the World as we know it suggests that Greenhouse Gasses are dangerous.  Greenhouse Gasses are about 95% water vapour and if we didn’t have them, the Sun’s rays would bounce off the Earth.
Models such as the one that Cubby follows are computer models that have left the role of the Sun out of the equation completely.  They totally discount any effect of the Sun in warming the planet and claim, quite falsely that warming is solely due to Carbon Dioxide.  Note that CO2 is depicted as smoke stacks, whereas in fact, CO2 is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas, which you cannot see!  The molecular weight of CO2 is quite significant as most of it stays at ground level.  CO2 consists of one carbon atom, whose atomic weight is 12 plus 2 oxygen atoms with an atomic weight of 16, so 12 + 16 = 28 and that is not the sort of thing that will cause the black balloons depicted in government propaganda to fly up into the air.  The balloons used are filled with Helium which has an atomic weight of 4.
I’ve included some facts about CO2 below and I can only conclude that people like Ben Cubby are scientifically illiterate as they do not appear to understand the role of CO2 in Nature.  In short they do not appear to have ever heard of the Carbon Cycle, so perhaps they slept through elementary science classes!
The following definition of the Carbon Cycle explains the role of CO2 in sustaining life, in short, humans and animals breathe out CO2, which plants breathe in and then breathe out Oxygen.

The Carbon Cycle
1. The continuous process by which carbon is exchanged between organisms and the environment. Carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere by plants and algae and converted to carbohydrates by photosynthesis. Carbon is then passed into the food chain and returned to the atmosphere by the respiration and decay of animals, plants, and other organisms. The burning of fossil fuels also releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
2. A cycle of thermonuclear reactions caused by the absorption of protons by the nucleus of a carbon-12 atom, in which helium and isotopes of nitrogen, carbon, and oxygen are produced, and resulting in the regeneration of a carbon-12 atom so that the process can begin again. The carbon cycle is thought to be the source of significant amounts of energy in the Sun and other stars. Also called Bethe cycle, carbon-nitrogen cycle. See also proton-proton chaintriple alpha process

Facts about CO2
The following facts come from the Galileo Movement’s Rice Video and are facts about Carbon Dioxide
See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC1l4geSTP8
CO2 is less than 0.04% of the air we breathe
In every 85,000 molecules of air just 33 are CO2
Of the 33 molecules of air 32 come from Nature and 1 comes from human activity.  CO2 from human sources is just 3% of CO2 production
32 are essential for life but 1 is supposedly producing catastrophic global warming
The truth is that CO2 is essential for life on Earth – the Carbon Cycle
CO2 is resident in the atmosphere for 4 to 5 years not hundreds or thousands as we are being led to believe by those who support Anthropogenic Global Warming and after that it gets recycled into plants, animals, rocks and so on
Of all the CO2 in the World, Australia manufactures only 1.5%
Australia’s CO2 production is 1 molecule in 5,700,000, expressed as a ratio = 1:5,700,000, so Australia produces only 1 molecule of CO2 in every 5.7 million molecules of air
Measurements cited by the Government reveal that it is temperature change that precedes CO2 not vice versa
Temperature sets CO2 levels
CO2 does not determine temperature
The Government’s sole Climate Adviser, Professor Will Stephan is employed by the Department of Climate Change
The Rice Video

This says it all!
Last but not least, you should read about how the Club of Rome stated that it needed to manufacture a phoney ecological crisis right back in 1990. See the following extract from the article on the Club of Rome. The move to convince humanity that they were the enemy of the planet and that their numbers needed to be reduced was outlined then.
“On page 75 of their 1990 publication entitled The First Global Revolution, the organization outlined how they would manufacture ecological scares in order to manipulate the public into accepting the imposition of a dictatorial world government run by them.”
“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself,” states the report.”
“The passage appears under a sub-headline entitled, “The common enemy of humanity is Man.” ”

Lies Re Permafrost

The following article title and URL is for an article from the Sydney Morning Herald of 28.11.12, which can most charitably be described as scientifically illiterate and a piece of climate alarmist journalism.

It contains inaccurate information about global temperature since there has not been a single statistically significant increase in global temperature in the last sixteen years according to Professor Judith Curry. See:

Date Accessed: 15.10.12

The Herald article misrepresents the nature of permafrost, here’s what Marc Marano, from Climate Depot has to say about the allegations:

“Here is a meteorologists initial reaction to study:

Despite its name, permafrost is characterized by its instability. It is often covered by an active layer that regularly melts. Although permafrost can be thousands of years old, it is sometimes newly formed or about to thaw, and it often exists close to its melting point (Williams and Smith 1989). As permafrost thaws, it jeopardizes both man-made structures and natural features. Thawing permafrost on mountain slopes can lead to landslides (Nelson et al. 2001). Approximately 55 percent of the Northern Hemisphere’s land surface is covered by seasonally frozen ground, which can last for a few weeks in the middle and lower latitudes, and for several months at high latitudes and high elevations (Zhang et al. 2003a).”

“In addition:

Even with all those greenhouse gases being dumped out of the permafrost, global temperatures have declined over the past decade. Apparently the entire basis of their scam is garbage.

Further, the following links show that the threat of permafrost melting is nothing new and date back to 1954 – before the alleged period of anthropogenic global warming.

In 1954, Canada relocated their largest Arctic settlement due to melting permafrost

You should read about how the Club of Rome stated that it needed to manufacture a phoney ecological crisis right back in 1990. See the following extract from the article on the Club of Rome. The move to convince humanity that they were the enemy of the planet and that their numbers needed to be reduced was outlined then.

“On page 75 of their 1990 publication entitled The First Global Revolution, the organization outlined how they would manufacture ecological scares in order to manipulate the public into accepting the imposition of a dictatorial world government run by them.

All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself,” states the report, which can be read in full at the end of this article.

The passage appears under a sub-headline entitled, “The common enemy of humanity is Man.”
Of course, to unite the public against a common enemy, by using divide and conquer to turn humanity against itself, villains need to be created in the public eye who can be blamed for slowing efforts to save the planet from the mythical threat of global warming, even as Arctic ice levels return to normal and much of the globe has just experienced its coldest winter in decades.

For the record, I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Pure Mathematics and I used to believe in global warming, until I spent some ninety hours studying the so-called ‘science of climate change’ and it doesn’t stack up for a number of reasons but one should note that it is actually global temperature increases that drive CO2 levels and not vice versa: This information comes from half a million years of ice core samples.

“The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect,” Dr. David Evans writes. There is no way CO2 increases can cause global warming when they lag behind it by 800 years on average!

Also, the Climate Alarmists use computer models to predict climatic patterns based on weather models, there’s only one problem here, that being, that’s it’s impossible to predict the weather more than a fortnight ahead with any degree of accuracy.

“It has recently been calculated that to produce an accurate forecast of the climate even as little as ten years ahead would require all of the world’s computers to run not for ten years but for 100 billion billion billion years.

For a look at CO2 in perspective, see the following:

The Rice Video

I guess that I would derive some comfort if I thought that I could , to use the parlance of administrative law, “disabuse” those who believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming, but sadly so-called “Climate-Change” is a religion and as such its arguments do not rest on objective data. There is very little chance of convincing Warmists as that would involve asking them to confound their opinions with facts.

Show this to those who believe in Global Warming

How to Stop ACTA Now

What we can and must do about ACTA!
“A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves” – Edward R. Morrow (1908-1965)
“When Injustice Becomes Law, Resistance Becomes Duty” – Thomas Jefferson

We need a new approach, whereby we take back government from the elite’s stooges and appointees – grassroots campaigns whereby we go to visit our Local Members with a carefully prepared plan, limited to a maximum of ten point plan to tell them why we find something unacceptable. What I mean is don’t go in with voluminous documents except as reference documents. Let the politicians know that this reference material is not part of the presentation.

The most effective strategy is to actually visit your Local MP in person to make representations as to why we should not ratify ACTA!

How to find your Local Federal MP
If you are unsure in which electorate you reside, then, try visiting the Australian Electoral Commission Website at http://apps.aec.gov.au/esearch/
in order to ascertain this information.

You can also make an appointment to see the Senators for your State when Parliament is in recess – I suggest that you do this!

What to do about getting an appointment
Ring your Local Federal MP’s office and make an appointment to see them. Suppose that you are told that they are unable to see you, then, don’t be deterred, ask to see the appropriate member of their staff.

Prepare a Ten Point Plan
Do not go into visit your Local MP with a voluminous document complaining about ACTA because it will not be read! Instead prepare a careful ten point plan that sets out the problems with ACTA in summary but do make sure that you reference every point and do take in the reference material with you. If your MP, or their staff member asks for a copy of this or access to this reference material, then, give them a copy.

Do be polite but let your Local Member know that you are very concerned about the impact that ACTA will have on our society and that you are only prepared to support a candidate who will vote against ACTA being implemented.

Politics is a numbers’ game!
If every electorate in Australia receives ten visits, then, that will be sufficient to let our politicians know that we don’t want ACTA ratified. Not many politicians have a death wish and visits of this magnitude will convince them that the policy is not only unpopular but that supporting it is political suicide. Get your friends to do likewise. Make this information go viral! Urge everyone on your email contacts’ list to do the same.

The worst case scenario
What if you see your Local Member to advise them of the problems associated with ACTA and they tell you that they will support it anyway? Suppose that you approach the Opposition and they tell you that they support ACTA too – what do you do then? In this case, you will need to hold public meetings in your electorate and field your own Independent candidate.

The next most effective strategy if you don’t visit
Use Snail Mail as it works better than email. It’s a matter of you showing the level of commitment by writing a letter because more work is involved in writing a letter than an email. They attach more importance to a letter because it takes more work and that speaks volumes about your level of commitment. If you take all that trouble to write that letter then they know that you are serious!

Note that there are far more of us than them! They no longer control the flow of information now that we have the Internet at this point but ACTA will allow them to restrict freedom of speech and communication, so please take action while there is still time.

Sign up for all the media sites like Digg and Readit and publish it there and then make a copy and that makes it almost impossible to erase. Write a blog post about it. Either copy the post from the original site or the major points from it and write a post about it and include a link back to the post.

Write a comment about it and please post it in the other video sharing sites.

Go viral with this information!

What we need to do is go to see our Local Members to remind them that we exist. It’s our fault that our politicians do the bidding of the global elite in a way because they don’t very often hear from us except at election time, via the ballot box. In the meantime they’re hearing from lobbyists who are representing the New World Order. It is incumbent upon us if we want to stop the New World Order to go to see our politicians and put the alternative point of view. Edmund Burke had his moment of wisdom when he said

“All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” There is very little else that Burke said, with which I agree. I think the point here is that if you’re going to be a mushroom than you and others are going to become victims.

If you can do nothing else, then send an email protesting or make a telephone call to your Local MP’s office to protest

One thing that you should understand is that when you send an email, it goes to someone, who is a long way down the food chain. There is a very real chance that it will not be read! Telephone calls lack permanency and staff can forget the content of the call.

This says it all!

The Great Firewall of Australia – Internet Censorship

Hi Folks,

Welcome to my first blog for 2012.  If we believe the Mayan Calendar and the prophets of doom, then this may be our last year ever on the face of this planet.  Alternatively, it may well be that 2012 is the beginning of a far more open world where the flow of information is concerned.  You must understand, that governments maintain power by treating their subjects like mushrooms – that is, feeding them on bovine excrement and keeping them in the dark and that the internet has changed the way we communicate and has produced a new Reformation akin to that produced by Claxton’s printing press, if you can believe the following article from the Daily Bell

Internet Reformation
http://www.thedailybell.com/bellinclude.cfm?id=3325&bid=2&StartRow=21&PageNum=2
Date Accessed: 5.1.12
The problem is that this is not what Stephen Conroy and his bevvy of bureaucrats want!
 
Coming Your Way Soon – the Great Firewall of Australia!
Just when you thought that internet censorship was a dead issue and that Stephen Conroy had decided that it just wouldn’t cut it with the electorate – the sodding
Telecommunications Legislation Amendment (National Broadband Network Measures—Access Arrangements) Act 2011 was passed! 

Telecommunications Legislation Amendment (National Broadband Network Measures—Access Arrangements) Act 2011
While the whole debate on the National Broadband Network has been dominated by the cost issue, people have missed something far more sinister.  The government’s agenda is to force internet censoring on us by putting ACMA at the pinnacle of a single National Broadband Network internet.  The rest of this piece of legislation, I am assured, is pretty innocuous:  The person who informed me of this was one of those involved in the setting up of the internet in this country.

Fortunately, this censorship provision is easy to get around, largely, because the people who want to stop us finding out about their plans and past misdeeds and who are using the furphy of child pornography as a ruse do not really understand how the internet works.  Tunnelling is the answer to getting around this problem!  For a discussion and explanation of how this works see:

Always beware of a government that wants to stop free speech, because if does, then it has something to hide, and that something is that it is operating in such a way, that it is not in your best interests!   You see at first blush, Stephen Conroy’s arguments seem quite reasonable, until you understand that the child pornography is on proxy servers and Virtual Private Networks (“VPN’s”) not the main internet!  The other thing is, he wants to create a child-safe internet, well, I’m afraid if parents don’t want their little darlings to look at adult content, then it is actually the responsibility of the parents to supervise their child’s web surfing habits and there is abundant and adequate software available for this purpose.  Adults should not be shut out from viewing adult content, whether or not they want to view this stuff, is another question entirely!  I don’t want a government, telling people, that they cannot view adult appropriate content because a child might see this!  Child pornography, which is disgusting by any measures, needs to be handled by the police infiltrating chat rooms and using their technology to break paedophile rings, in other words, attacking the problem where it is, not where it isn’t and thereby treating freedom of speech as collateral damage.

Truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long
Shakespeare, Merchant of Venice

The pornography problem is well and truly offset by the openness that the politicians fear and for very good reasons.  As a person from Electronic Frontiers Australia said “Politicians hate the internet because they can’t sell it to their mates and they can’t kill it.”  The internet is indeed a scary place for politicians, because people can find out what they are doing.  A politician puts a foot wrong, and minutes later someone on the other side of the world finds out about their misdeed:  This fact has led to a new openness and enables the ordinary citizen to exercise scrutiny over corruption.  Remember that governments fall when they lose legitimacy!  See:

The Anatomy of the State
by Murray N. Rothbard
Lew Rockwell.com

Date Accessed: 2.3.10

All of this discussion about secrecy and legitimacy leads me to ACMA, which I suggest has been put in place to protect corrupt politicians and bureaucrats.  What you have to understand is that there is absolutely no sensible reason why ACMA should be able to keep its blacklist of websites secret, nor is there any cogent reason why those who have had their websites blacklisted should not be informed of the decision, even more stupid, is the complete lack of appeal against a decision to ban a website!  When ACMA’s blacklist of websites was published, it included a Queensland dentist, a tour operator and a tuckshop.  These people would never have known that they had been banned, had the blacklist not been leaked.  Shortly thereafter, Wikileaks published this list which Stephen Conroy categorically denied was the blacklist, on the grounds that it contained a greater number of entries than the ones on his list but the disparity is explained thus:

“The disparity in the reported figure is most likely due to the fact that the list contains several duplicates and variations of the same URL that stem from a single complaint. Alternatively, some sites may have been added to the list by the filter software maker.”

This sort of secrecy has no place in a democracy!  We do not need a Chinese Style Firewall in this country!  When you analyse the arguments of the censorship lobby, you can see that there is no good factual evidence or basis to support their decision, so it invites the inference that there must be a hidden agenda.  I leave you with the following quote and fact:

“It is not the function of Government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error.”
Robert H. Jackson (1892-1954), U.S. Judge

This says it all!
The leading cause of unnatural death in the twentieth century was governments.  During the Twentieth Century, governments killed in excess of 200,000,000 people – why would you want to trust governments, especially when it comes to telling you which information you can access and which you can’t?
