So maybe we are being told that our mining is to be run down for a while and re-located to Africe. I say for a while. Just long enough to break us. I was taught back in the late seventies that in the nwo Australia, part of zone 4 of the 10 world trading zones was to loose all manufacturing, sheep and cattle and grain industries and become the mining pit of the nwo. So we will see.

The best hint that I've watched it is that I know and acknowledge that she doesn't say anything about Australians should work for $2 a day.

I wouldn't be surprised if the corporate elite in the United States secretly feel the same way.

Thanks Amanda, for stating the obvious. I don't see why her weight or looks have anything at all to do with this issue. I know that some overweight people have thyroid conditions that make it extremely difficult to lose weight.
I find it interesting that so many slip off-topic, and base their vitriol on her looks as much as her statements, and from what I have read it seems her $2 a day comment was taken out of context.

Maybe we are being Psychologically manipulated to take out all our angst on such people as this insignificant woman.
Whilst the Big Fish get away
Rather than resort to violence we need to stop buying into their game and take our dignity back.
I sincerely believe though we have differences and they can become heated and do.
Most people are good at heart - we just need to walk away from this rigged game.

In all seriousness, I know this woman sounds very insensitive and naive in the ways of the world. To be fair, she may have been quoted out of context or she may not have the ability to accurately articulate her views.
Perhaps her legitimate view is this, which we should all ponder.
Many Australian workers (and for that matter workers from many developed nations) may be putting unreasonable demands on management. For example, unions may be asking management to follow unreasonable rules. In light of the fact that workers in undeveloped areas of the world demand little or nothing from management, Australian workers (and for that matter workers from many developed nations) may need to re-examine the demands they put on their managers. If workers do not re-examine their demands, they may eventually lose to competition in undeveloped nations.
This is not to say that workers should be treated like slaves or paid extremely low wages, but rather they should be more competitive. There is a lot of fat in the workplace (please hold the fat jokes regarding this woman) that needs to be trimmed.
See, this is something I find that people don't think about: if she doesn't make money, neither does her employees. So, she could just shut down her businesses tomorrow--all of them! She doesn't need them. Some of her upper tier could survive without having to work ever again, so they could just ignore the loss of jobs.

May sound sick, but people like this need to be murdered. They can't be allowed to think this is THEIR world while they destroy everyone else's lives.

I have lived a totally self sufficient lifestyle with a group of friends numbering approx 33 though the numbers fluctuated as people came and went. People from all walks of life ages and Nationality's
It made me realize that we required no form of Government or Banks (Money) or Law (self policing) or any of the institutions that run society.
It takes having the will and shared objectives and ideals.
Everyone no matter who has much to offer in just being who they are and contributing their skills for the common good.
Strip away the superficial structures and we are left with the same skills and gifts or talents
When I say walk away - Perhaps if you feel the Globalist company's are greedy and exploitative then don,t use them.
Being self sufficient is the easy part - the hardest part is people themselves
What is it one needs (not wants) to survive
Land to grow on
Shelter and Warmth
All other things are bonus and we can truly have it all if we set our priority's to a shared goal
Of course it is not possible for the vast amount of folks at present - But it does not mean we can not start small and watch it grow - More and more people are so sick at heart of the way things are and looking for something better - It is up to each individual to make a first step rather than be a victim - fight for your freedom and liberty and Happiness will follow
I know it seems like an impossible mountain to climb and all our paths are different - But have faith
It can work - So far the way of the world has reaped a bitter harvest - Sow the goodness in you.
Help your fellow Man in which ever way is at your disposal - Don,t let despair win
