Contrary to all reports……

16th April 2019. I am not dead – I have just been sidetracked to twitter for awhile. With Federal Elections coming up it is full of lies, accusations, innuendo, and worse, to the point I have had enough. This comment I tripped across the other day, the words are not mine. ‘Those who govern the nation and shape the public discourse cannot be trusted with the preservation of life on Earth. There is no benign authority preserving us from harm. No one is coming to save us. None of us can justifiably avoid the call to come together to save ourselves.’ ‘“Honestly, if you’re given the choice between Armageddon or tea, you don’t say ‘what kind of tea?”

Bargain……

19th February 2018. Well today is the anniversary of the WW11 bombing of our strategic port,Darwin. I roll my eyes and the victims of the bombing roll in their graves knowing that with the help of some of our compliant politicians this port was recently leased to the Company of a foreign power, China, for 99 years. ‘While you’re stabbing my back, you can kiss my ass too’

The Right Dishonourable…..

7th December 2017. Our learned forefathers constructed a Constitution which basically forbids dual citizens to hold political office. Being flushed out of our Parliament one by one is a trail of politicians who fail to meet that requirement. Many fully knowing their ineligibility have remained silent – dishonourable bastards ! ‘All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.’

The circus has come to town…..

3rd July 2016. One just has to sit through an election night count to realise that we are way over governed. One hundred and seventy or so federally and their army of hangers-on justifying their existence in the delusion they are representing their constituents when in fact all they are doing is toeing a party line. ‘The circus has come to town, but there are way too many clowns’

Elections again (get me outa here….)

18th March 2016. Well we are in the middle of a filibuster. The only time politicians will work late – to save their seats. Here in Australia we are girding our loins for an election, ready to be treated like children as politicians launch their own brand of obfuscation, distortion, exaggeration, evasion and I daresay ..lies. In a double whammy our news media insist on pushing the daily circus of US politics on us as well. My only observation on the US election situation is that Donald Trump can’t be controlled by the vested interests, so he must be destroyed as well funded attacks against him increase daily. ‘In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant.’

Longevity….

31st July 2015. Money buys longevity in politics as well as favours. Our two incompetent major parties exist because of their refusal to introduce a democratic system of funding. ‘Government is the entertainment arm of the corporate sector’

I’m Back…

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

Public Purse….

7th November 2014. So we have 6 live Prime Ministers in this country all sucking on the public purse to the extent of a half a million salary p.a with obscene benefits and superannuation. Not one of them has statesman like qualities to say ‘enough is enough’. ‘If voting changed anything they would make it illegal’

Just a bunch of ….

31st May 2014. It probably comes as no surprise that the major political parties have been rorting the election funding laws, many instances past the point of criminality. The grip on power is totally related to money and some have the hide to call it democracy. ‘Can Australians get back to a point where politicians are honest? Not unless that point is the tip of a sword’
