Blog Time Out

Modified From Elsewhere:

“I am sole owner of my own company and have plenty of money to do what I please, when I please.”

Thats the Clinton generation for you. Larn All The Tarm? Did you know that Clinton was that kid who played Banjo in Deliverance? True story.


Yeah same kid. So there would be little Bill. And he’d just be playing his Banjo. Talking flat out. But everything come out of the chiles mouth was a LAR. It got so bad that when his olds showed up, they’d punish him all the time just because they knowed he musta-bin-larn.

WilliamJeffersonClinton? What you been doen boya? You been Larn All The Tarm? Yes you have! Yes you have! Don’t be making a Lar outta ME!

And directly his momma would slap him. Though as tarm rolled on, he did never open his mouth. Mostly.

True story.


I don’t know why you say these unkind things. Its true. And the reason why little-Bill Clinton didn’t talk that much is that everytime he opened his mouth he’d get punished. Punished for Larn All The Tarm.

True story.


No I tell you its true. It was the selfsame chile. I’m getting to how he managed to cover it all up. You see the interfering YANKEES had these outrageous putupon laws that meant he had to be sent to school. The persecuted AMERICAN family, couldn’t put it off no longer.


“William Jefferson Clinton!!!!!! You be Larn All The Tarm” Bills mother would say. Well because time had hallowed the obvious conclusion that there was no stopping William Jefferson lying, ifsoever his mouth was open, his mother took his Banjo away and burnt it.


But before the Banjo ever did leave Bills lovin-cluthchin arms …….she shoved a saxophone in young Bills stupid tooth-tangled mouth. It was her only way, to stop him from, LARN ALL THE TARM.

But it was too late….

Of course not. Because you don’t get it. I haven’t told the rest of the story.

He would take off to the woods. Just to avoid being slapped. And he wouldn’t say nothing. He wouldn’t say nothing at all. He’d just be there in the woods with nature. Playing all these combinations and power chords out there, just him and the natural world. The world that Bills fellows had forsaken.

You see: When you cannot talk, you get stronger. Stronger in ways not one in a thousand men can see. You get stronger. You do. You get so much stronger in the hidden skills. In those darker modes of meaning. Dexterity of words leaks out all of ones building nature-born emotions. The mute gets so much more powerfully locked into ………… THE MENTALWORLD (R Slaven).

You might have called him a child of a LESSER-GOD. But you’d have been a braver man than I.


If you are going to be nasty I’m not going to finish this true story. It has implications for science, for politics, and for the future of the sapiens.


You see the one thing I always admired about Bill Clinton was his absolutely astonishing saxophone skills. He was a sensational player. Get old clips from the first time he was running for office. He’s just phenomenal on the sax. Still it was a highlight when George Bush the Elder pulled out a Telecaster (I’ll check) and said “I prefer an AMERICAN guitar” and he hit some really nice, if brief, tones. (Mulvaney)

Those Northern troublemakers had laws, which said that the oppressed “family” of Bill had to send Bill to school sooner or later. Thats when his…


SHE WAS JUST TOO LATE!!!!! I think about it all the time. What would have happened if she had not even attempted to defy the yankee oppressors and acted to have this fellow socialised earlier on her own account?

I know you guys believe in parallel universes and fifth, sixth seventh… (and on and on)dimensions.

I believe in none of that stuff. But I like to believe, in a better world, where Gary Hart won that election. And none of us ever heard of the name of Clinton.

((( Well except for Dewitt showing us the way forward with public works projects in full concordance with the small business spirit of fairness and free enterprise. And except for George Clinton..)))


((((…. And except for George Clinton. The other Clintons crowded out George. And now we cannot find the funk (sob) We just can’t find the funk. ))))))

But his mother was too late burning that Banjo. Because so powerful in the mental world was this mute. So long he spent out there playing the Banjo (until the blood stopped flowing from his fingers.) So long did Bill play and play. Until his fingers, grew thick skin, on them. (and he never did lose the urge to move those fingers in that way, though heartbroken he could never pick up a stringed..)


(….Heartbroken little William Jefferson Clinton could never pick up a stringed instrument again ever….)

As I say it was too late.


Out there with nature he hit the exact resonance, and the perfect sequence of chords, enabling the dentist-deprived mute tolock into those cosmic frequencies, which enabled this white trash musical prodigy ….. to co-opt the power of nature itself.



In effect William Jefferson Clingon became a Jedi-Knight. In that he could be LARN ALL THE TARM and everyone would believe him. And even the few who didn’t believe him, were cursed in such a way, that they would fall for him personally. Little Bill would put a spell on us all, and no-one excluded. No-one was excluded. No-one was excluded ever.

Those who professed to hate Bill would  hate him on paper, but they would still melt, when they saw…..


I’m glad you’ve tracked down my blog. But I must finish this true story. You see those of us who knew he was larn all the tarm. Me Rush and others. The usual suspects. We hated him on paper, but we could not bring ourselves to dislike this man. In fact I’d be running him down, telling everyone he was a psychopath. But in the end it did no good and only made myself feel guilty. You see he had the powers of Simon-The-Likeable.

Simon-The-Likable showed up one time on Maxwell Smart. Playing himself. This is not a foolish analogy. I’ve always liked Simon-The-Likable. I’ve always liked him. And I probably always will. Long before he was born.*

You see. All of us who knew that William Jefferson Clinton was poison. Yet confound it, we still liked him when he……..

………. When he was there talking on the TV in front of us. We’d punish ourselves for telling the truth about him.


William Jefferson Clinton would have been an historical footnote. A real phenomenon of a person who could lie and we all still like this guy, his nastiest critics as well.

But the problem is his level of lying became the new base from which the newly upwardly mobile of around his age built their act upon.
Worse still was his effect on the Clinton generation. Now 30 somethings.


These now-thirty somethings: hopeless with women generally speaking. Yet paradoxically surrounded by an unending sea of blowjobartists. Incredible stuff. All the kids Larn and Lovn in resonance with that banjo-playing mute.

The world has never been the same and I don’t know where you kids are taking us. Its true that only one man has bested William Jefferson in terms of outrageous lying on TV and that would be a fellow called Joseph C Wilson.

But though only one person has beaten Clinton for LARN he’s essentially taken an whole…


an whole generation with him, or leastways 80% along the Clinton, Larn-all-the-tarm, road.


I don’t know what the moral of this story is. Clinton is a traitor. Probably a rapist. He treats women he’s been with abominably. And I still like him. HE HAS SPECIAL POWERS!!!!! Thats really the end of this story.

There is just no moral to it. Don’t leave your mute kid playing Banjo in the mountains? What can we take from this story? The damage was done. If Gary Hart had won everything would be different. The world would be different. You would be different. Your country would be different. My country would be different too.

But I’d be just the same.

Time out for this blog.




  2. Barnaby. Can you not promote, lets say, a long-term tax exemption rather than subsidies or spending programs? These spending programs are no good really. If the suppliers of this sort of soil enrichment weren’t taxable for 20 years that would be a better deal then spending.

    The process for making this biochar is somewhat like the process for the creation of synthetic diesel out of any sort of organic material. It would be a great synthesis to have some sort of generalised set of tax exemptions, that promote the capital development of the sort of equipment that could make either. Either syngas, synthetic diesel, or biochar. That way at least we would get some soil enrichment out of this global warming racket, and promote energy independence. Carbon solids to synthetic diesel is really the future of energy, alongside nuclear. The two industries more complements than competitors. It would be just such a good thing to use a bit of jui-jitsu on this appalling global warming racket and get long-term soil enrichment and synthetic diesel by the gigalitre out of it. But going the subsidy route is never worth the cost.

    Subsidies put the effort into the gold rush of current production. Tax exemptions throw resources into long-term cost-effectiveness. Subsidies emphasize current production. Long-term tax-exemptions emphasize reinvestment in long-run business development.

    Good stuff for telling the truth about US and Australian financial realities. Don’t take any flak from these Liberal quislings and triangulaters.

    Every so often Glenn comes up with an interesting and plausible study. Must be some sort of infrequent accident:

    “Von Schuckmann 2009 (link is deals with everything down to 2000 metres and shows a continuing rise between 2003-2008.”

    So the first 700 metres is on the cooling trend. And the first 2000 metres is still on the warming trend. Very believable. But consider the magic of this alleged CO2 effect. Misses out the top of the ocean and leaps down into the deep water. It is not difficult to see what is happening here.

    We can readily agree with Glen that the total climate system is still on a warming trend, on the basis of that 2000m metric. But its clear that it won’t last, and its more than clear that the information is inconsistent with the CO2 being the cause. No CO2 effect can make that 700-2000 metre leap. But downwelling can. The Gulf-Stream downwells at the sea of Labrador. The great ocean conveyor takes 1600 years for a single cycle. Deep down the water under extreme pressure must move like toothpaste.

    If that was the only location of deep down-welling, we could say roughly that the 2000m temperature and the sea level, would continue to rise so long as the Gulf Stream water, is above the average of the last 1600 years. Once the surface waters fall below that average, those last two warming metrics will start to turn down as well. We won’t have to wait long.

  4. “In case anyone thinks this was a type – LNP as in Liberal National party in Qld, not LDP”

    Unbelievable what a free ride this character gets. A real dummy and somehow he managed to get pre-selection it seems.

  5. Jedi mind-tricks, Graeme, jedi mind-tricks

  6. You’d think so wouldn’t you. But he lacks the subtlety of any mute kid who played his Banjo in the wilderness. He is in no way connected with the resonances of this planet. Its these fluoride-drinking city folk who are taken in by him.

    Maybe now that he’s a defector, more of my stuff might be approved over at thoughts on selling out freedom:
    Libertarians can hardly claim that governments are evil, then rule out intervention and stealth when dealing with other governments. Non-intervention would inevitably lead to a situation where foreign governments could destroy any libertarian society, simply through the use of agents of inlfuence, spreading subversion. There appears to be a real science to this practice.

    The best we can do is gear up for our interventions to be BIG AND SHORT. Big short, and focused on murdering foreign regime leadership. We should not be part of any treaties or at least very few. We ought to pull out any clauses or arrangements which limit the flexibility of our response. That means any alleged free-trade-treaties but most of the clauses in most of the treaties that we have, we would want to pull out of.

    Treaties and collective security undermine the will of people to make the flexible investments they need, to cover and looming hazard.

    As to our alliance with the Americans I think we were right to intervene. But we ought to have intervened in a bigger way for a much more limited period of time.

    We cannot get rid of war. But if we can gear up for intervention, (whether for a quick burst of aid or killing) to be large and of short duration, then we can at least get used to the idea of their being peace most of the time. We should have had all our troops out of Iraq by the end of 2003. Out of Afghanistan within weeks of the Taliban falling from power.

    Gearing up for interventions that are BIG AND SHORT is also about getting rid of foreign debt and making sure we always run surplus trade balances in peacetime.

    I don’t think you put a high barrier on our government intervening. This is too much to the advantage of adversaries.

    I think you put the barrier on the length of time you intervene for. They have to define very clearly who needs killing. Then kill a proportion of those people and then come home when a sufficient number of those people are dead.

    So they could mobilise with some frequency. Get good at mobilising. Like with the Tsunami. We could have mobilised in a massive way for just a few weeks. Then out of there, and no billion dollars for Indonesia to spend on vote-buying and weapons.

    To do this we probably need a much bigger reservist force, more equipment and trained maintenance, but a slowly falling full-time force. A slowly falling full-time force yet with a much bigger reservist force could be a replacement for the unemployment benefit and for public funding of tertiary education.

  7. Graeme, John Greenfield’s resurfaced over on Club Troppo as Peter Patton. Pretty funny.

  8. What happened to your blog time out Birdy?

    How long have you had these recidivist tendencies?

  9. Mostly just posting comments I’ve made from other sites. And not particularly frequent.

  10. it’s time you stepped up and offered yourself as a Lib candidate Graeme. your country needs you.

  11. If I had time for that I’d have time for more blogging. Which is probably the more time-effective way to spread influence.

    Who are the Liberal National Party SOON? Is that an integrated coalition in Queensland? Or someone else?

  12. yeah Graeme, the Libs and Nationals have merged in Qld. so you’re wrong, Humphreys didn’t just do the jedi mind trick on city folk but country folk too

  13. Perhaps they thought the Milky Bar Kid could not be beaten and so they let him go with it. Actually he might do a good job of running Rudd down with a bit of luck.

    The thing is that by having him in that seat it will make CO2-Bedwetting bipartisan for that electorate.

    I noticed that my habit of calling AGW proponents “bedwetters” has finally taken off.


  15. Actually I ought not be churlish about it. Seeing as his appointment isn’t so much to win as to put a massive dent, in a safe labour seat, you’d actually have to say he’s a very good choice. That perhaps the political sophisticates were thinking straight when they gave him the job.

    I’d hate to see either of them win. So whichever candidate wins I’ll be equally delighted and disappointed. I wish him good luck and encourage him to run hard. This is a good job for him. A job for which he can only do good, and cannot do any harm, no matter how successful he is.

  16. A good argument Terje. But not an absolutist one. Its very hard for a government not to be complicit with evil if they do not oppose it. We may want to be like Tom Bombadil and simply be carefree and dominant in our own territory. But there is some balance to be had and I think the balance is in the length of massive activity. I’m still proposing limited government for aid and military intervention. But the limit here is in the form of the duration of the intervention.

    Consider this. If we have a reputation of being explosive and trigger-happy, but easy to get to withdraw and go home, diplomacy on the other guys part will consist of not annoying the Australians.

    Comment by Graeme Bird | February 15, 2010

  17. Graeme, there’s almost no difference between the two major parties. Neither of them are serious about climate change and on economic matters all governments are going to cut the public sector, i.e. public services in real terms, restrict if not hack back on social welfare and protect the banks and big business.

    It’s all a game and the real power lies outside – and effectively untouched by – the parliamentary system.

  18. Gold.

    Obama on the big $17 million bonus to JP Morgan Chase’s CEO (and $9 million to Goldman’s)

    “First of all, I know both guys. They are very savvy businessmen. And I, like most of the American people, don’t begrudge people success or wealth. That is part of the free-market system.”

  19. “The excerpts that Bloomberg published Wednesday from its interview with Barack Obama provoked some indignation from Simon Johnson, Paul Krugman, and others, but the full interview, published yesterday morning by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, deserves a few additional howls. It shows the degree to which Obama not only doesn’t understand but, on a deeper level, also doesn’t share the outrage many Americans—from left-wing bloggers to right-wing tea-partiers—feel toward the Wall Street CEOs and traders who have made off like bandits during the financial crisis they helped bring about.”

  20. Yeah thats interesting Philomena. Its like Obama and his lunatic totalitarian buds have now given up on what seemed to be almost childish schemes for setting up a dictatorship, and now he’s moving to the centre to suck up to the powerful.

    Imagine saying that these dummies in banking are savvy businessmen? What they are is savvy rent-seekers and politicians playing a role as businessmen.

    The market spoke and this fellow was supposed to be on the scrap-heap looking for another job.

  21. Obama was never totalitarian don’t know where you got that idea from. The liberal left and the far right have a lot more in common than you might like. e.g. in having illusions in the ability or willingness of the Democrats to seriously challenge the corporate master class. They can’t, won’t and never will. Of course the most class-conscious rightists know this and just manipulate the hell out of the qualitatively less politically savvy like your average not very bright Oz style economic rationalist conservative or “libertarian” surface skimmer.

  22. Obama appeared to be sneaking in all sorts of clauses and schemes into policy that appeared only comprehensible should one assume an attempt at centralised control of the most extreme sort. It looks like its failed and he may have given up for the time being.

  23. Why did he fail?

    Who or what stopped him from implementing his alleged totalitarian centralist designs?

    You’ve fallen for a right wing chimera Graeme, religious like in its evidence-free and ideologically blinkered distortion of the facts.

    Obama never promised anything. His entire election campaign was a sleight of hand allowing people starved of hope to project onto his blank slate all they personally hoped for from politics and national government.

    Time to wake up, Mr Sleeping Beauty.

  24. You cannot get away from the fact that a very few idiosyncratic exceptions – such as yourself, Mr Bird – the vast majority of today’s self-described “libertarians”, economic rationalists aka neo-liberals,are physically unattractive, coarse, socially autistic, nerdy males who never got over the fact that as young people all the really cool leftist majority of men and women in the broader milieu laughingly dismissed and effortlessly outclassed them and left them for dead intellectually, emotionally, creatively and scholastically.

    Sad, banal, but true.

  25. For example, the key planks in his medical reform program didn’t kick in. Now its too close to his mid-term elections, and he will even risk the support of the more loony leftists in his party if he doesn’t work to get these people re-elected. I think once you get a conservative Republican elected in Massachusetts, well he’s got to start casting about for votes for his Washington coterie.

  26. It’s not a question of abstract policy planks kicking in but people supporting something which is worthwhile and that support being reflected in policy change regardless of the opposition of minority powerful interests.

    The US health care system is an international joke and a national disgrace and its outcome is reflected in the humiliating and revealing key indicators of life expectancy and infant mortality rates. Both these correlate very strongly with and are among the best predictors of state failure.

  27. Here is something you may find interesting. Hoppe describing affinities between Austrianism and Marxism.

  28. For all these reasons, for all his errors and mistakes and for his wrong-headed methodology we may expect Hoppe’s ideas to remain a footnote in the history of political thought. And it may well be better this way. An effective strategy of liberation would look very different. If Hoppe continues to use the terms ‘liberalism’ and ‘freedom’ for his authoritarian and pseudo-liberal agenda, it is time for the true liberals to claim back these terms from him.

  29. Of course is the American medical system was powerfully cost-effective it could not constitute a strategic area to consolidate power by some dictator wannabe. Where we thought Obama was coming from was in the following of the exact plans and playbook of radical theorist Saul Alinsky.

  30. I don’t know of Saul Alinsky but a quick google shows him to be a goodie and a legend and even the conservative, anti-communist William F. Buckley said he was “very close to being an organizational genius.”

    Your response once again shows that you care less about people than you do in ideological positioning which I reckon in a fair contest will always come a lacklustre last.

  31. I just think its factual that this is where he was coming from in his first year. People started seeing themselves in Obama leading up to his election. Some conservatives even saw a potential conservative in him. I don’t think you are like this fellow. I just think Obama is that way inclined.

  32. Actually Philomena. So you aren’t thrown into shock later, if you ever get time you ought to maybe search this website using the search terms:

    Barry Soetoro Barrack Obama

    You will see I have it in for this fellow somewhat.

  33. Barry Soetoro Barrack Obama

    Isn’t that what Victoria Jackson calls him ?

  34. I don’t know Victoria. It just happens to be his last known legal name.
