Friday Boganomics – ‘Increased Likelihood of Rate Rise’

6 05 2011

The bogan is a voracious consumer of media. It will, on any given day, access any or all of a variety of newspapers and news sites ranging from the Herald Sun to the Daily Telegraph and occasionally the Courier Mail. On the days it’s feeling like pretending it knows something about economics or politics, it will brush up against Fairfax, but often retreat hurriedly, confronted by the lack of likeness to Andrew Bolt’s blog.

The bogan consumes all of this media because it cares about the big issues. It needs to opine vociferously on matters of importance. And to the bogan, there are two matters of greater importance than anything else: stopping boats and the economy. The performance of the economy, the bogan knows, is entirely the responsibility of the Federal Government, and, moreover, the bogan knows that there is only one true measure of economic performance: interest rates.

However, unlike the ‘conventional’ economic wisdom, which the bogan is assured by News Ltd is spurious, the bogan knows that a truly strong economy exists only when interest rates are at all-time record lows. The bogan approaches interest rates much like a climatologically paranoid beaver. Should it rain heavily, the beaver’s dam could well be inundated. Likewise, the bogan, nestled in his McMansion, sees rising interest rates as an impending torrent; that is, a clear signal of approaching economic doom.

Very good boys. Kind of a double negative doubling down of outrage.

Any luck with the recent comments widget?

The bogan demands low interest rates so it can indulge in

https://thingsboganslike.com/2010/02/15/85-residential-property-investment/

whilst making 6 figures for lugging bricks around making rip off dogboxes to sell to other bogans and rich gooks also wanting to partake in #85.

The problem with low interest rates is low capital growth and the bogan demands capital growth or it is farked in the #124.

Thought you may have referenced the US dollar vs Aussie dollar… the fact that it is so strong means Bogans can buy more ‘Chev Badges to the $” from the USA….

Jackpot!

James Hunter

Loftie,
There are those inside GM usa who want to drop Holden as a name and use Chevrolet world wide. Wonder which marketing school they did not go to. undo generations of brand loyalty to make gm usa feel good.
any way intelligent people buy european cars. built better,last longer are repairable, have spares available for at least 20 years, handle better,use less fuel. Hmmm I am getting tierd of listing the reasons but you get the drift.

6 05 2011
micko

Yeah but the parts are in europe so expensive to get in australia, the best option is buy something that they have made an absolute shitload of like commondore, falcon or corolla then there’s plenty of spares.

6 05 2011
James Hunter

Micko,
Two things; I have owned Renaults,Peugeots,vw’s and Citroens all my lifeand have always found the parts and servicing reasonable and comparable. Citroen Cgseries 1 timing beltincluding idlers and waterpump(just to be sure) less then $800.00 inc labour and oil,at 100,000 Km same car front and rear rotos and pads, less then $1,000 at 120,000 Km, friends with falcons seemed to spend more and my car did not need its windscreen removed under warranty to stop leaks nor have gone through two diffs under warranty like theirs did.
The concept of “popular cars” being better to own because there are lots of spares available even, at coles and wollies, has hairs on it. The reason so many spares are available is because you need them so often

Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

JH – Yeah, but European sixes and V8s are too expensive.

I know I’m destroying the planet, but I love the sound and feel of a large motor. No replacement for displacement.

Oh, James Hunter, ‘the concept of’ you writing anything other than boring barely legible drivel is as hairless as your practically empty head. And get a job!

You’re doing it wrong. I dunno if you’ve heard of it, but there’s the great new invention called ‘the internet’. One of the things this new-fangled internet lets you do is buy stuff from overseas. Here’s hoping it doesn’t catch on, I don’t want to see too many bogans letting go of their Chevodores and buying European metal, lest the overseas purveyors of cheap spare parts jack up their prices…

On a more serious note, buying parts from OS lets me run a Saab for about as much as it would to run a Holden (well, actually a bit less when you consider stuff like fuel consumption and the like). I know what I’d rather have, thanks.

You’re funny James. You look like a scary bikie yet you post regularly on TBL and drive french cars.

My dad had a peugeot 504. I got it as a hand me down and had some good fun in it, the build quality of french cars are twice as good as an asian or australian car, but they look too poncy imo so in a very image conscience world they don’t sell as well as they should imo. They need to make them look more manly.

Martin, you don’t think a Citroen World Ralley Cup car is manly ? or a Peugeot Diesel Le Mans winner ? in more mundane daily cars how about a vw golf GTI or a Renault Megane Ralley RS ??

8 05 2011

Well you’re talking about rally cars that have had a million dollars spent on them. Not stock ones that the average schmuck buys.

Golfs look ok.

7 05 2011

Have you actually seen a modern French car, martin? They make Korean cars look good in comparison. This is what really pisses me off about the French car industry; they used to be awesome. Now they suck.

Yeah it’s a real shame that some shitty Hyundai has a fighting chance against them. At least you don’t have to spend $30k+.

Someone should write to them and explain.

shakPower

the bogans knowledge about finance and economics starts and ends with the words interest rate. if you are trapped with a few bogans anytime just mention the word ‘inflation’ and watch the bogans go on a winging spiral with each one coming up with different definitions and explanations for it, ultimately ending is a ‘farking curnt’ swearing fest and may end up in a glassing…

You can forget to pick up the kids from school, you can forget to feed the dog, but don’t forget to watch this week’s episode of …

THE BOGUE & BOGUETTE SHOW!!!

(THE SCENE: The counsellor’s office at the Holy Redeemer of Sacred Light Biblical Christian College, a few minutes’ drive from BOGUE and BOGUETTE’s McMansion. On the wall is a couple of those dorky motivational posters featuring a thick black border, a photograph of some inspirational scene and a word in a serif typeface with a pithy aphorism beneath it, a silver crucifix and a framed print of an Icthys fish symbol.

In the centre of the room is a low, pine veneer coffee table surrounded by several small red armchairs. Seated around the table are BOGUE and BOGUETTE; the PRINCIPAL who is a mild-manneered middle-aged man with a salt-and-pepper beard, black-rimmed squared-off eyeglasses and a tweed coat; the COUNSELLOR who is a plump, friendly-looking man in his late fifties; and a DOCS OFFICER, a young, blonde, frowing, athletic woman with her hair tightly tied up in a very severe ponytail.)

BOGUE: This had better bloody be important. This is, loik, the second time in about a munf that you’ve called me and me missus in here! I’ve missed out on more overtime because of youse fellas, overtime I need to pay your rip-off school fees!

PRINCIPAL: I understand, sir, but just like last time, this is important. Perhaps even more so. Anyway, allow me to introduce our school counsellor, and this is Julia, a caseworker from the Department of Community Services ….

BOGUE: What? What the fark? Are you callin’ me a paedo or sumfint? Why the fark’s this broad here?

COUNSELLOR: Relax, mate, nobody’s calling anybody a child molester. However, there are other concerns about …

BOGUE: Well if you ain’t accusin’ me of touching me own kids, what the fark’s bitchface here doing? Huh?

BOGUETTE: Honey, just settle down! Let’s hear what these people have to say!

PRINCIPAL: No need for that kind of language, sir! Anyway, as I was saying, there are some concerns, some serious concerns, nothing to do with sexual abuse – it’s probably best that the counsellor talks to you about it ..

COUNSELLOR: Thanks, mate. Anyway … we’re concerned about the welfare of your youngest son, Kaiden, he started kindergarten here at the Holy Redeemer of Sacred Light in February this year. There’s just a few incidents which has raised alarm bells with his teacher …

BOGUE: Yeah, like what?

COUNSELLOR: Well, when his teacher Ms Parnell gave Kaiden’s class an exercise in confidence-building and communication … it entailed each kid going up to the front of the class and saying what they want to be when they grow up. Most of the other boys said they wanted to be a firefighter or a train driver, one of the brighter kids said they wanted to be the weatherman on Channel Nine …. but Kaiden’s response was worrying to say the least.

BOGUETTE: What did Kaiden say, mate?

COUNSELLOR: He replied, and I quote – (looks at papers in a manilla folder) – “when I grow up I want to stay in bed under my blankets all day so Aiden won’t hit me.”

BOGUETTE: Christ … oh Christ … I keep telling Aiden to stop mistreating his little bruvva, he won’t listen to me though …

BOGUE: Well? What’s wrong if Aiden smacks the little tike around the ear a few times, it’ll turn Kaiden into a man. It’s character-building an’ shit.

PRINCIPAL: There are other things too … like Ms Rogers, who was on playground duty earlier this week, she found Kaiden curled up behind the groundskeeper’s shed sucking on his thumb, refusing to talk. That’s common behaviour for kids in their first week of school, but after three months?

COUNSELLOR: Yes, and while supervising the kids in the PE changerooms, Ms Parnell noticed bruises all over Kaiden’s stomach. Kaiden wouldn’t say where he got those bruises from …

BOGUE: All roit, all roit. So, we’ve established that me Aiden’s a little dickhead. So what? So why the fark’s DOCS here then?

DOCS WORKER: OK. It’s my job to write up an action plan. The primary concern of DOCS is the welfare of children in this state, and from the evidence it’s pretty clear that there’s a case to put Kaiden under supervision.

BOGUE: Action plan? What’s that supposed to mean?

DOCS WORKER: Well, for instance, what I’m thinking here is to place you, your wife and possibly Aiden into counselling to give you the extra support that you need. There’s also the possibility of home visits and ….

BOGUE: What? What are you trying to say? That me and me missus are bad parents and stuff? Is that it, is it? Let me tell you, bitch, that me kids want for nuffint! They got an Xbox each, a telly in each of their bedrooms, I even took them up to the Gold Coast last year and went to all them theme parks! Believe me, them kids get everyfint! You can go shove yer action plans up yer backside for all I care!

DOCS WORKER: Very well then. If you don’t co-operate, it will be my duty under legislation to apply to the magistrate for an assessment order and a supervision order. Is that understood?

BOGUE: What? Court? Who said anyfint about court? I ain’t done nuffint wrong! Why you little …

BOGUETTE: (grabs BOGUE’s arm) Sweetie, settle down! It ain’t the end of the world! Maybe DOCS can help us and stuff, maybe they can help us to stop Aiden being such a little dickhead ….

BOGUE: Urrghghurghrkuurgghnt! Let go of me, you slag! This is me honour we’re talkin’ about here! Court order? Sayin’ that we’re bad parents? (turns to PRINCIPAL) I blame you, you nerdy, do-gooder little pr!ck! I pay eleven grand a year to send me kids to your poxy school, I pay your farkin’ salary, you had NO right, NO right whatsoever, to run like a little girl to DOCS and tell them crap about me being a bad parent and puttin’ shit on me eldest boy Aiden!

PRINCIPAL: (snaps, leaps to feet, points his finger hysterically at BOGUE) Listen! The only reason – the ONLY bloody reason – I let f#$kwit bogan losers like you who have never so much as read a single verse of the Bible in their whole life send their vile brats to MY school is because we need the fees and the Commonwealth Government subsidies to fund our missionary work with orphans in Cambodia and to build our third megachurch on a twelve-hectare lot we bought last year out at Llandilo! Do I make myself crystal clear, you f#$%ing fat scumbag?

(everyone’s jaws drop)

DOCS WORKER: Uhhhh …

(The PRINCIPAL collapses back onto his armchair, and prays with his face in his palms)

PRINCIPAL: Oh Lord, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for our sins, please forgive me, I didn’t mean to say that, honestly, I didn’t mean it … oh Lord our saviour full of grace ….

BOGUETTE: Uhhhhh …..

PRINCIPAL: (sobs) I didn’t mean that. I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to offend you … oh Christ what have I done …

BOGUE: Fat bogan scum, am I? Is that roit?

(The PRINCIPAL openly weeps, the only other sound being the ticking of a clock on the COUNSELLOR’s desk)

BOGUE: Vile brats, hey? Vile brats? I pay eleven grand a year …. vile brats?

PRINCIPAL: Sorry ….. I’m so so so so so sorry … please believe me …

BOGUE: Oh well then. Looks like we’ll have to take our kids out and send them to the state school. I don’t care if they have to share classrooms with kids who can’t even speak English proper and houso scum … I don’t care. We’re out of here! You can stick your religious bullshit up your bible-bashin’ arse!

BOGUETTE: Are we free to go? So, what happens now?

DOCS WORKER: Here’s my business card, I’ll call you to arrange a suitable time to meet up and arrange the support you and your children need. Just making myself clear – our first duty is the welfare of your children. We don’t want to cause trouble, and if things go well we probably won’t even have to get a court order. So … sorry we didn’t get off to a flying start … I’m looking forward to meeting Kaiden too. He sounds like a very gentle kid, I’m sure that with a bit of help we can make him into a more confident and sociable boy.

COUNSELLOR: Well, I’m glad that we’ve cleared things up … best of luck with your kids at the state school, miss.

BOGUETTE: Thanks so much! And sorry about me hubby, he gets a bit riled up and stuff at times … Honey! Honey! Why are you standing over the principal like that? Honey! Stop clenching your fists like that!

BOGUE: (hyperventilating through his nostrils) …. KURRRRRRRRRRGHNGHGRURGHGHGHNNNNT!!!!!!! (throws glass of water on the coffee table over the PRINCIPAL’s head)

UR, that is farkin’ brilliant.

Is Kaiden the one of the kids who has some hope yet?

7 05 2011
urbanreverie

All kids below a certain age have some hope yet, Ash – the possibility that psychopathic personalities might be a congenital thing aside. Aiden, however, is a lost cause at the age of eleven, the repugnant behaviour of his father has been well and truly normalised in the way he sees the world and interacts with it.

And thanks to everyone for your words of praise – I like Tone’s channeling of Michael Caton. Knowing that my little weekly postcards from the boganic wastelands of outer-suburban Australia are appreciated makes it all worthwhile.

6 05 2011
Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

And, the Principal’s tirade – I’m keeping that one filed away for next week.

I found out on Tuesday that one of the kids I coach is being put on the weights by his dad – he’s only 9 years old and his old man is one of the desperate footy dads who’s trying to live his dream through his son. Bogan scum of the highest order.

I spoke to Marv Marinovich 2.0. after training and told him that it wasn’t a good idea to start his son on weightlifting at that age. He did not take kindly to being questioned by me.

6 05 2011
Simon - Glasser at Arms, Constant source of Randomness

Glass the c*nt Ash. Trying to explain stress on growing bodies incurred by lifting weights etc would be a waste of time.

6 05 2011
Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

If I find he’s still forcing it on him and it’s affecting the kid during training, I might just end up having to resort to glassing.

chris - live from the bogan heartland

Bogan tradie who has moved in at the end of our street insists on giving his kids some kind of martial arts training in public. He’s out in the front yard with the little rat-tailed tyke who can’t be more than nine years old and they’re decked out in all the gear while dad is teaching him the finer points of god only knows what. Hopefully there’s a 12-stone Zangeif kid in his class to make him behave.

7 05 2011
Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

Martial arts are not bogan. I took some karate lessons in high school and worked my way up to a green belt before I quit cause I couldn’t hack it. I saw plenty of bogans come in and want to smash some carnts up – none of them could handle more than a couple of months lessons.

7 05 2011
chris - live from the bogan heartland

Sigh. Ash, I never said they were. I also did a few years training when I was younger. And yes, the biggest fun was watching instructors single out the thugs and wannabe tough guys and work them over. Most never came back. These days I find the best self defence is simply putting myself where the aggro isn’t.
Fact is, the little tableau played out in this guy’s front yard every weekend is bogue to the extreme. I wish I could post a picture of it: you would agree with me.

8 05 2011
Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

I imagine I would.

I once took a bogue friend who thought he was a hard carnt to a Slayer gig. Surprisingly, he’s never claimed he was a hard carnt since.

Actually, all the ones I’ve encountered (regardless of spelling) have been utterly delightful kids, without exception. And at the sort of school I work at, that’s at least eleven or twelve of them…

classic stuff as usual. i wonder how a bogan would react though, if called a bogan . never seen that happen. maybe the bogans have a hidden pride at being bogans, maybe they will take it as a compliment.

6 05 2011
Ash - Almighty Overlord Of Glassin' Carnts

Just my last post before someone else says something – if they’re going to public school for reals this time, is it too much to ask for an upcoming episode where the kids all make friends with the reffo children?

Oh, James Hunter, I see your rather unique style of spelling and punctuation delivers the impeccably high standards TBL readers expect. ‘You are so much more gracious then “Thornton”, the return of “Peter”. !’ The word you want would be than as opposed to ‘then’, and let’s stick to either a full stop or an exclamation mark, Jim. Not both. Employment wise, I also see you’re persisting with that part time job, by which I mean you’re still trying to live off your wits. Sorry to hear about it.

To everyone else, I saw something even more mindf*cked than JH cooking snags with his nipples today.

Unwillingly, I left the Shire to drive out west because a friend of my mum’s had invited us to a Sikh temple for a Mothers Day do. Even though we’re not Sikh, we went anyway.

On the way, I had a car cut in front of me. This car had a Playboy bunny sticker and a “F*ck off we’re full” one as well.

The mindf*cked part? This car was a Toyota Prius.

Nah, it’s just too expensive to run when I don’t have a job. So I’m selling it – once I get off my Ps I’m buying a V8 anyway. Gotta keep destroying the environment now.

In the mean time, I’m gonna live my other realistic automotive dream – I’m gonna buy an old Alfa Romeo. I’ve always wanted a rear drive Alfa ever since I drove my uncle’s old 75. Fark BMW – that baby was the real Ultimate Driving Machine.

Very nice JH.

I do have to wonder about your choice of voltage though. Don’t you worry that by choosing 240V the tykes back at home might mistake the juice you use for the nearly instantaneously deadly variety that comes out of the wall?

9 05 2011
James Hunter

Pendant,
Good point the juice that we use is genuine 240volt and certainlywe would not recomend anyone try to emulate what they think they see us do. We at live venues always advise people not to try any of the things we do as sudden death or other serious injury may result.
Similarly we would not advise people to try to cut their mates in half in a cardboard box with a hand saw as they see a magician do nor put mum in a box and stick a dozen swords through it.
Seriously though the studio are the ones who decide what to show and when they are also accurately aware of how all the acts/stunts are actually performed as they must be for oc.heattl and saftey. so ultimately its the studios call.
Mind you I have had extreme difficulty trying ,unsuccessfully , to convince idiots that i do not actually eat a live mouse as I appear to. But i guess those people also expect to find a big blue bin full of bums and legs out the back of the magicians venue.

James Hunter

Edward and Ash,
Pete Babe has had this ongoing and sad obsession long before his latest reincarnaton. It is a sad reflection on something , maybe his mother could through light on its primeordial origins. He does not especially cause me grief other from the anoyance of having to wipe tears from my eyes at inappropriate times from the laughter. It is especially sad to see that unlike us he actually seams to care about what other people think. Strange is it not ?
I have often before remarked that he should take advice from the words of Oscar Wilde. Particularly ” The only person that you have to live the rest of your life with is yourself” and “To fall in love with oneself is often the start of a lifeling relationship.” Perhaps also, “only the shallow know themselves.” should be taken on board.

However I thank you for your kind comments but suggest that much as any replys from myself and others, only seem to aggrevate his cerebelum that the best response is to simply to totally ignore him.?

Oh, James Hunter, while I treasure your sharp advice it is your audacity and self-confidence that really stand out. A purist, however, might take issue with the awkward passages, overblown thesis and questionable attention you paid to the development of ease and clarity in your writings. I suggest a modest revise and rewrite programme of action to take place immediately.
