Onya Costa/The Last Roman

Another Costa thread brought to the front for the second time:

I’ve brought this one to the front to honour a man who didn’t go down without taking some of these thieving bastards with him. Onya Costa:


Thinking of how Costa, in a sea of primitive familism, is about the only fellow we can trust to not act in a blatantly tribal fashion, reminds me of this story I heard about a missionary who was taken hostage. At the time of first hearing that story I had no understanding of where the satelite technology was at. But it transpired that, at that time, each pixel was only 7 inches across. I think its quite a lot better now.

Anyway here was this civilized man held prisoner amongst a bunch of high-tech savages. Tribal animals and goons with guns. He was on his own. In the sense of being a civilized man he was all alone. The last civilized man thrust back in time into a new dark ages. Pushed around by black-skinned Ostro-Goths (as it were).

A survivor after the fall.

And not a fellow Roman citizen in sight.

So how did the Americans find the missionary?


It was his bald white head that singled him out as the last Athenian in goontown.

The satelite photos spoke. And this was their verdict.


We know the last non-tribal man in the NSW State labour government in exactly the same way. There he is like an extra in “Dark City” between crowd scenes, putting on those spectacles to re-read “Free To Choose”

CAN YOU SEE HIM? ( I can). CAN YOU SEE HIM? (It is as if it were unfolding right before me)

There be Costa.

Behind the scenes and in the back corridors.

He is like a bespectacled Doctor Evil- but oh so alone.

So alone that he wants for even his own mini-me.

But see how fast he moves. Normal humans do not move that fast. See him  premptively kick a tribal labour-party big-shot, in the throat, …………………………………………………just to maintain decorum.


Familism. Familism.  How did it break out in NSW labour? And why did we not see it coming?

There are two men who used to be in public life. When I think of these two guys I cannot but help paraphrase the title to one of the last Elizabethan plays.  The play is called “Tis A Pity She’s A Whore”.

I won’t go into the other one, but one of these fellows I’m thinking of is Bob Carr.

I cannot help liking Bob Carr as a person.  And when I think of him the first thing that comes into my mind is “ITS A PITY HE’S A THEIF.”

Now isn’t that just indicative of how much we are abused and maltreated in this country? Here is a fellow that has robbed me and everyone around me flat blind. And yet on a visceral level I still like Bob Carr because he’s a guy who seems to tap into the older Western values at least in comparison to other labour types.

And now I’m confessing to giving him TWO handicaps for no good reason at all. Bob Carr robbed us. I should hate the thief. But still I cannot help but like the erudite-one. The man who keeps the entire Western Cannon between his ears.

The man of such fine taste and feeling (apart from being a highwayman and brigand) that Harold Bloom basically begged a visitation from the walking library.

How a shared affinity for books can allow one such as me to forgive one such as Bob Carr, who has stolen off all of us and not returned the booty. More is the pity. My feelings of vengeance have grown weak and flabby.

Bob Carr, on a good day, could seem to be a walking version of the lost library of Alexandria. But it was all deceptive for the residents of New South Wales who were blinded by the bookish mans presence to the problems brewing behind his holograph.



I mean how fucked up is this state now? How much has the ethos of NEW-AUSTRALIAN-FAMILISM taken over NSW-STATE Labour now that Bob Carrs Wizard-Of-OZ visage has departed from the scene?

You don’t think so?

Well I’ll give you one symptom for your fucking information.

How many husband and wife couples both hold MP status of any kind?

You might think that such an outrage is all normal and according to Hoyles but its just a fucking disgrace.

There is a bunch of them. Its a fucking scandal. The labour front-bencher gets in. And being a tribal savage, with a conduit to the “tribal surplus”, he immediately gets his sheila a safe seat. This is fucking primitive.

Ridiculously these people are known as “POWER COUPLES”.

They are not power couples. They are savages. We have been taken over by a bunch of dark ages tribal goons.


Its not going to stop with these NEW AUSTRALIAN anti-Athenians merely getting their wives snouts in the trough alongside their own. Its not stopping there!!!!

You are fooling yourself if you think the familism ends with this one symptom of awesome fiscal abuse.

Next it will be everyone in cabinet, pluss a cabal of non-elected tribal elders. Cabinet and tribal elders pulling all the jobs. They are now outrageously cranking up bureaucratic job salaries in advance of this racket.

But next it will not just be these theives getting their wives into the trough. Next it will be the case that backstage tribal elders and cabinet ministers WILL BE GETTING ALL SORTS OF OTHER MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY UP THERE.

It doesn’t bottom out.

Soon everyone AND HIS MOMMA will have a safe seat. Everyone AND his momma.

This is such a fucking disgrace.

Anyway. In this sea of FAMILISM that we have been swimming in since the last of the union bully-boys were edged out by the latte-drinkers and the ethnic latte-drinking wannabes…. Since the tough-guy union faction collapsed. Since the whole thing fell apart. Since the whole deal collapsed…. Since the civilised mini-Empire fell apart…..

One lone Athenian has walked out of the mist and fire, like a Kaiser Solce with the destruction of the old order behind him.

How can he survive when he is so much NOT LIKE THE OTHERS?

Because Costa is better then these assclowns.

He’s not totally up to speed I’m afraid to say. He’s where the best man would have been circa 1980. Like he’s a good man but a little bit behind on a number of matters.

They fear him. As all savages fear a lone civilized man of principles.

The last well-armed Roman in a sea of low-life Ostrogoths and the savages fear him don’t doubt it.


I wish I had of known Costa a long time ago so I could have taught him a few things. But the reason he gets all this extravagant praise all of a sudden is that he is the only guy in NSW to stand up against the deprivations of this Environmentalist pandemic of lies.


  1. Here Here Mr Bird,

    I could never understand why he lined up with the socialists.

  2. Dudes would get down on him for getting depressed once in awhile. But this is not anything to be ashamed of. Think of the company the poor bugger had to keep? If you didn’t go into deep depression every now and then under those circumstances you’d have to be a bit worried about yourself.

  3. I mean right about now the black dog could hit at any moment any one of us. Bloody Turnbull. I cannot think of one latte-left pet consensus idea that old bighead hasn’t fallen for. Turnbull bloody Turnbull. How depressing.

    The only time seeing Turnbull wasn’t an unpleasant surprise was when John Howard was laying some home TRUTHZ on the dude just before the last election. He just makes me feel like Marvin the robot.

    Why the enthusiasm for this fellow? I’ve never seen the appeal myself.

  4. Graeme
    He wasn’t depressed because of his party.
    It’s on the record that he’s manic-depressive, he actually takes meds for his condition.

  5. Sorry wrong thread – above comment was about Costa not Turnbull

  6. Yeah but how can you disaggregate such a thing entirely can you? He’s got access to drugs right? But if the company is just so appalling you could likely be gobbling pills all day and still get a bit down now and again.

    Just imagine me having to work with Bahnisch and that crowd. I’d have to take so many pills I’d need to bring a backpack to work each day.

  7. “Yeah but how can you disaggregate(sic) such a thing (that Costa was depressed because of his party) entirely can you?”

    Nor could you dismiss the following causes:
    – a TV show he loved was canceled
    – his dog died
    – his hemorrhoids were getting more and more painful
    – etc…
    Because you don’t know the guy and haven’t got a f@#king clue!!!
    You’re just making everything up as you go on you twit 🙂

  8. Well yes thats true Susan. Still its hard to imagine a reasonable bloke being around those swine he used to get about with and not having a few bluesy days. Only lots and lots of drugs could help in that situation. It would be like finding oneself a fallen and chastised demi-god, in the same cess-pit amongst unrisen apes. Some sort of human feeling is applicable here I think.

  9. “The Cuomo/Frank letter should be seen as vindication of “George Reisman”

    A very fine thing it is to see the word “vindication” in the same sentence as the word “George Reisman”. Good work from rog, the first Catallaxian I know to have been paying close attention to the greatest living economist. This is a fellow that has probably been more right about more things than just about anyone still living.

    And it shows what a broad church those guys at have become. Since he’s not quite one of them yet they have chosen to treat him with some deference. When I first ran into the Austrians they were a bit of a prickly bunch but they’ve really eased up. They used to say nasty things about Milton Friedman without any qualifying comments but suddenly that changed. And if they wanted to criticise the freedom warrior they would usually complement him first. It was as if that had become official policy.

    So the Austrians seem far less angry and prickly then before. And I guess it comes with the confidence that you really are superior and don’t need to be testy about this or that.

    Here’s a tape where Lew is surprisingly generous to the memory of the freedom fighter.

    [audio src="" /]

    Guido really understates his case about the relative cheapness of the 100% backed commodity money. Handled properly it is the cheapest standard. It doesn’t cost anything. It saves you money and is insurance for civilisation, giving us resilience and keeping our extraction industries ahead of the game and able to come back after societal chaos.

  10. “…being around those swines…”

    Just because YOU consider them swines doesn’t mean HE considered them that way.

    “It would be like finding oneself a fallen and chastised demi-god, in the same cess-pit amongst unrisen apes”

    Normal people do not consider themselves demi-gods even if they are bright.

    As I said, you are just making up all of this considering only YOUR world view and projecting it on someone you know nothing about 🙂

  11. Right. Thats the appeal of it but.
