11th September 2015. We went soft on discipline, parents and teachers were prevented from chatising children by a minority legal / bureaucracy. We reap what we sow. We have lost a generation who have turned into rebellious, disrespectful, self centered ratbags. In my opinion the spate of crimes against women and other crimes of violence being committed by this generation are committed by people who have never heard the word ‘No’. ‘Good citizenship demands attention to responsibilities as well as rights.’
22nd August 2015. Looking around a small publicly accessible pool near a restaurant I counted 9 signs around the pool, all exhorting the dim-witted and foolish not to do dim-witted and foolish actions. Why do we have to lower society to the lowest common denominator. ‘What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.’
12th August 2015. ‘Australia’s mandatory helmet laws for cyclists should be abolished because they are deterring people from riding bikes and improving their health, a number of doctors and academics have told MPs.’ Are these the same doctors and academics that told us we should have them in the first place? If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed.
22nd July 2015. Well back after a long sabbatical while getting a bit disillusioned with the state of the nation. Currently in my view we have the worst Prime Minister we have ever had, the current government is the worst we have ever had, and the current opposition is the most ineffectual we have ever had. The country is in a race to the bottom and like leemings many of the population are following. The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, corporations are dodging billions in tax and the country is existing as a service industry selling over priced overseas goods and services to other Australians. Sitting back and saying nothing – achieves nothing
30th August 2013. Any time we get a picture perfect calm day some paranoid gits will decide to burn off bush, destroying habitat,flora and fauna ‘as a precaution’. How about as a precaution we force anybody that wants to build in a bushfire area to take appropriate precautions rather than destroy the natural environment.
18th January 2013. Incompetence of political processes, intransigence of religion,suffocating air pollution and getting worse,global warming and getting worse, population out of control,superbugs out of control,rich getting richer,poor getting poorer, making war not peace. Sorry to say it folks – we’re doomed because of our own collective stupidity. Sit back and enjoy the ride but it aint going to be pleasant. “Silent Comment”
