Time To Ponder

29 Jul

Dear reader, your humble blogger is taking a time out until August 3rd.

That’s the day after the USA is due to default on its debt.

Regular readers will know that I began this blog in early 2010, motivated by anger.

Anger at the dishonest, and economically-ignorant treatment that Senator Joyce was receiving as then newly-promoted Opposition Finance spokesman, due to his courageous and prophetic voicing of concern over US (and Australian) debt levels, and the risks that these debts (foreign and domestic) pose to Australia’s future.

With the “distant but real” risk that Senator Joyce predicted in late 2009 now only days away from being realised, I am taking time out for some much-needed R&R, way out in that wonderful place where our latte-sipping, concrete-jungle-dwelling, holier-than-thou, “green” totalitarian-wannabe paragons-of-hypocrisy never actually venture (the bush) … and there, to ponder the future for barnabyisright.com.

Rest assured that should the US default next Tuesday evening, I will definitely post again next Wednesday with a sad, but nevertheless a somewhat triumphal “Barnaby was right!”

Beyond that, however, I cannot say at present.

The fact is, whether or not the US does default next Tuesday evening is neither here nor there. Barnaby was right to warn of these risks that he foresaw, and was right to call for public debate on the wisdom of Australia having a “contingency plan”.

With the USA now on the very brink of default – and their only, very short-sighted hope being the chance that their politicians might agree to kick their $14.3 Trillion debt can down the road a little more – the evidence is undeniably clear.

Barnaby was right.

For any new visitors to this blog, or regular readers who have not gone back through the archives, I would ask you to please consider reading what I personally consider to be some of the crowning achievements of this site to date –

There is lots more of course. But I consider the above to be perhaps the best, and certainly the most important of my efforts over the past 18 months.

There has been a handful of videos that I’ve made too. By far the most popular being this one, that I made in July last year especially for the Gillard vs Abbott Federal election, which has been watched over 24,000 times –

Please enjoy all these articles and videos. More importantly … please share.

Especially this, even though it is not my creation – The Most Important Video On The Internet.

And remember

Barnaby is right.

Take care.

    Mate, I’ve only been reading your blog for a few weeks at most, but I’ve been following the geo-political scene now for just under 12 months (you’ll be surprised how I found my way to that). Please, continue with your blog, I read it daily and enjoy your articles.

    I have forwarded your site to family, amongst many other e-mails, trying to get them to wake up to the lies and fraud being fed to us from behind the lying teeth.

    You will – or maybe not – be surprised at how much they believe the US default won’t affect us, or how much they believe we’re in surplus because the government says we are, regardless of what I say or offer as proof to show that we are not in surplus and that the US default will cause a major crash here in AU.

    They do, however, believe the Carbon Tax is a bad thing, but that’s probably because they are thinking from their wallets and how devoid it will be from their demigod: “money”; and not about reality.

    Thank you for your efforts and enjoy your time out. 🙂

    Judging by the gold price & Treasury yields this ‘debt ceiling’ thing is just smoke & mirrors. I’m not expecting fireworks on August 2, after all the US government defaulted in 1971, yet 40 years later its worthless scrip still has some ‘moneyness’ left in it.

    I’ve been coming here for quite awhile and share the experience around the blogosphere.

    Keep up the sharp wit, an important element in our debating strategy. You are on a winner because Barnaby is a charismatic leader who will one day become PM.

    Hope you enjoy the bush holiday, I live in the MDB. See you later.
