It’s been a whole year since our beloved founder Peachy created this place (or so), and all I can say is what a year it has been!
Over that time:
We’ve seen the further degeneration of Australia from a property and money obsessed hell-hole to a property, money AND covid obsessed shithole.
We’ve witnessed the utter evisceration of whatever human rights we had, at the hands of populist politicians playing to the bedwetter scaredy cat mob and (not so) independent judges who hand wave all challenges to said revocations under the tireless excuse of “it’s an emergency”.
We’ve watched property rises continue to rise and life for the young and the healthy to increasingly deteriorate, defying the hypotheses of MacroBusiness and other long-forgotten (or increasingly forgotten) doomers
We’ve witnessed the former website hermetically fold into itself, banning or chasing away whoever was left to read it and leaving behind a mostly boring echo chamber barely different from the offerings of the MSM
We’ve seen jabs be all but forced at the barrel of a gun into the deltoids of most of the population, under the promise that it would stem covid case growth. We now have more cases than we have ever had, in the middle of summer no less
We’ve seen this site grow from a small blog focused upon economic cynicism (which we need to see more of) to a regular online variety show, driven especially by Timbo and Minister Sinister’s often disturbingly prescient satirical articles
So what will 2022 bring? Are we getting over covid? Will house prices remain upward? Will Winning@Failing finally lose weight?
Let Leonid Brezhnev ring in the new year
