From one “smartest person in the room” to another…

From one “smartest person in the room” to another…

As I sit here, in my lounge room, with my laptop, and no-one else around, to my shock and horror, I realise that, Turdball and I have something in common.   😯

Cos like Turdball in a COALition party room meeting, or a cabinet meeting, or in fact in the toilet,  I, like Turdball, am  also currently the smartest person in the room!   😯

And while I’m here enjoying the fact that I am currently the “Smartest person in the room”, and pondering the latest “agile” and “innovative” proposal by the aforementioned Turdball, which in fact was first disregarded in the 1980’s, as not economically viable, I thought It was incumbent upon me to point out a few areas that might have been overlooked in his rush to look like our illustrious PM was actually “Leading a debate”, (any debate, and/or … doing something   😉  ) after his disaster of an environment minister, one Tosh Friedandburnt, was ripped a new one by the premier of the much maligned SA , at a presser where Tosh intended to give himself a good and hearty pat on the back for doing such good work in his portfolio!   🙄

At this point, I should explain for those that have been waiting a while for more words of wisdom from your’s truly   😯   , I have been bloody crook, at least in part as a direct result of another summer of record temperatures and humidity, as climate change once again rears its ugly head for any with even half a brain, to see.   😡

And as the great Turdball is looking a bit, to say the least, dodgy when it comes to climate change, let me just remind you of a couple of quotes from the great man (read narcissist) himself;

Remember that old Turdball promise that “I will not lead a party that’s not as committed to climate change as I am”; and who can forget his colourful description of The Abbott’s “Direct Action” plan, as a “Fig-leaf”  to cover the fact that they have no real climate change policy???   😮

But I digress   😛

So, I know that the Snowy Hydro scheme is an iconic Aussie infrastructure project, that has a lot of sentimentality attached, in the public mindset, and I know that the pressure is on Turdball to look like he’s actually got some idea WTF he’s doing, after months of lying to the public and misleading parliament over the part renewables played in the SA blackouts… But has he really thought this through???

Which brings me back to a few points he may have overlooked.

Firstly, The very reason we’re told that we need the extra generation capacity, is to help with peak loads during the hot summer months, which are predicted to get progressively hotter, for longer, as is evidenced by the fact that records seem to have been broken every year, for at least the last few, with temperatures climbing steadily and weather patterns noticeably changing for the last couple of decades.

But the question to Turdball is, do you really want to rely on hydro… Really?

I mean , what happens when we have long, hot, record breaking summers, with more and more frequent extreme weather events? (Yes, that is a rhetorical question, but currently being the smartest person in this room, I feel more than qualified to answer it anyway   😛   )

  1. We can suffer more droughts,  like the one in 2007 that had a major impact on the snowy hydro schemes ability to produce power.   😯
  2. We can experience less rain, and shorter ski seasons due to the quality and amount of snow, both of which the snowy scheme relies upon.
  3. During longer and hotter summers, we lose more of our precious water supply to evaporation, and what water is available , is needed for irrigating our precious food supplies, both for the domestic and export markets.
  4. At the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, when we’re talking longer, hotter summers, and more frequent and intense heatwave conditions, the one thing that we can rely on during peak load periods is an over abundance of sunshine, which is overwhelmingly the cause of said peak load periods, and can be easily and cheaply used and harnessed through PV and battery storage, in both large and small capacities, to cover any base load shortfall.  And the one thing that we cannot rely on during those extreme weather events is sufficient excess water!
  5. The “Pump” part of the “Pumped hydro”, will still be powered by coal , which will continue to pollute the atmosphere at unacceptable levels, further exacerbating the already dire and increasingly extreme effects of CC, and the reasons for the required action in the first place   O_o   o_O

And now we come to your other preferred option of “Clean Coal” which being the smartest person in the room, you must know is not only NOT a viable economic or environmental option, but an oxymoron, not unlike your energy minister Matt Canavan… Although, he completely ignores the “Oxy” part, and goes straight to MORON!!!   😛

But again, I digress.   🙂

With “Clean Coal” producing a maximum emissions reduction of only around 30% (If  and when it becomes commercially viable) , and true renewables at least 70% lower than that, (and already available) and with the cost of renewables dropping exponentially , as take up rates increase, any fool can see that there is absolutely NO justification for seriously considering the coal option!

So, my advice to you is;

  1. Stop the lies and spin!
  2. Stop accusing others of Ideologically driven energy policy, when that is clearly the realm of your IPA/Muddick/LNP gov!
  3. Stop treating us all like idiots, just because that’s what you’re dealing with in your own party room!
  4. Start listening to the experts, instead of the idiotic right wing of the LNP!
  5. Either come into the 21st century, and start to deal realistically with the very real problems that we’re facing, or get out of the way, so that someone with real vision and  an understanding of the challenges that we face, can do what’s needed for our country and its future!

And I offer this perspective, and advice, as first among equals…

From one “smartest person in the room” to another   🙂

“Post”-truth-morals-ethics-intelligence…

“Post”-truth-morals-ethics-intelligence…

After spending a few days pondering the truth of “Post-truth” politics, I’ve come to the conclusion that “Post-truth” is actually a gross simplification, and nothing more than an umbrella phrase that covers a much broader problem.   😯

Now, notwithstanding that being fast and loose with the truth has been a prerequisite for politicians from the very beginnings of politics, blatant lies, in politics, really started in

Lest we forget!

Lest we forget the Godfather of “Post-truth”1

earnest with the advent of “Honest” John “Lying rodent” Howard.   👿

The great irony in Howards case is that it was allegedly George Braindead, the current AG who, is said to have given Howard the tag, even though Braindead himself couldn’t lie straight in bed!   😛

In fact, the only revelation to be gained from someone with the, to say the least,  dubious moral standing of Braindead, calling a fellow LNPee’er a “Lying rodent” , is that the rabid right is full to overflowing with pots and kettles!   😯

But I digress   😛

“Post-truth”

As previously mentioned, the Lying Rodent, was the first real exponent of “Post-Truth”, but that was long before “Post-truth” was even a phrase, but his “Core and non Core” promises became an LNPee’er catch-cry, which The Abbott took to dizzying heights with  his “Carbon Tax” and “Debt and Deficit disaster” lies, not to mention the blatant lies he told about the GFC, and the ALP stimulus incentives such as the HIP and school halls abbott_capone_poster_by_natsa666-d4bgnxw+schemes , which are still repeated to this very day by his rabid right sycophants.   😯

Now I could waste untold amounts of space going over the plethora of lies told by The Abbott, but we are all painfully aware of The Abbott’s dishonesty, so let me cut to the chase!

The big problem, as I see it, is that the disaffection that many feel, as a direct result of Abbott’s lies, is that they now tar all politicians with the same brush, which is manifestly unfair, notwithstanding the aforementioned fact that playing fast and loose with the truth is an integral part of the profession.   😯

Let me explain!

As we know, Abbott based his entire campaign as LOTO, on one lie after another about Julia Gillard and the ALP, and these lies were ably supported and built upon by a not only compliant, but complicit Muddick controlled MSM (“Post-truth/morals/ethics”)

A largely apathetic section of the electorate believed these lies, in the absence of some basic critical thinking, and accepted that;

  1. Gillard and the ALP were liars
  2. Abbott and the MSM were telling the truth
  3. The LNP were better at managing the economy

So these deluded fools trusted Abbott, despite all the evidence to the contrary, and gave him the job of PM   😯   , only to find out later that he had deliberately lied to them, promising anything and everything to get said job!   😦

And who can forget Abbott, when confronted by video proof that he lied, he just lied some more, accusing  the voting public of “Misunderstanding him”, and  flat out denying that he said what we all know he said!   😛Turnbull 1+

So then we came to another more devious liar in Malcontent”Waffling Wanker from Wentworth” Turdball, who got the Abbott’s job of PM, based on the premises that;

  1. He wasn’t Abbott   😛
  2. He wasn’t a Climate Change denier   ❓
  3. He wasn’t from the rabid right   O_o
  4. He wasn’t beholding to the rabid right   o_O
  5. He wasn’t beholding to any factions… Cos there are no factions in the LNP   😯
  6. He wasn’t the pathetically bad economic manager that Abbott was   😉

But sadly those poor deluded fools who voted for a Turdball led LNP soon found out that;

  1. He sold his soul/principles/credibility to the right wing devils of the LNP, to get the job   😈
  2. He was as big a liar as Abbott, albeit a somewhat more convincing one, as his lies were masked under a pile of waffle, commonly known as Turn-Bullshit   😛
  3. He was only the smartest person in the room, when “The room” was… The loo!   😯
  4. He was a universe away from what they expected   😦
  5. He wasn’t the Messiah, he was just a very naughty boy   😛
  6. He isn’t a PM’s arse!   😡

HansonRobertsAnd as The Turdball is directly responsible for (Post-intelligence) the second coming of the Raving Redhead from PHON, and her cohort of catastrophic  consequence, along with the Xylophone band and the Human Headline, and one policy and governmental disaster after another,we can reasonably and confidently conclude that (and I have to say that I never even thought this was possible) he is every bit as bad, if not worse than Abbott!   😯

But again, I digress.   😉

So here we are, with a large section of the voting public feeling a level of disaffection based on lies that made them vote for the very ones that caused said disaffection in the first place.

And the really scary thing is that a similar scenario is being played out around the world, with no rhyme or reason to the electoral outcomes being achieved, other than apparently in this post-truth world, the bigger and more outrageous the lies, the more morally bankrupt and devoid of principles, a candidate is, the more chance there is that that candidate will be elected   😯

And with the new year less than a fortnight old, I can’t miss the opportunity to mention the latest  disaster to befall the Turdball  alleged gov, courtesy of their continued foray into post-truth politics, with one of its classic exponents… Sussan Ley.   👿sussan-ley

And although an exponent of “Post-truth”, she’s not a victim of it, but rather a victim of her own sense of entitlement, hubris and gross stupidity.   😛

When the story of her “Impulse buying” of an $800k Gold Coast unit broke, she said that her purchase was not premeditated, and basically, her being in the right place, at the right time, and inspecting the property “Maybe ten minutes before the auction”, and being registered, at the auction, to bid on said property was all just a happy coincidence   😉

Since then of course we’ve seen the usual level of contradictions, including but not limited to, numerous tax payer funded trips to the Gold Coast, and a Gold Coast hinterland couple who said that Ley and her bloke inspected their property a couple of times, around ten months earlier, and put in several bids which were unsuccessful, casting further doubt on her assertions of no premeditation, and a spur of the moment “Impulse” buy!   😯

There are also new claims of travel allowance rorts where 4 of the usual suspects/serial offenders claimed expenses to go to Turdball’s 2014 new years eve party, while the majority that went,  paid for their own expenses… Of course Braindead was in the forefront of these trough snouters, in Sydney from 30/12/14-1/1/15 claiming flights, COMCAR costs  and travel allowances.   😛

Piecer Mutton flew from Brissy on 31/12/14, and returned on 1/1/15 and claimed flights,COMCAR costs and $468 travel allowance.   😯

Mitch Flyblown claimed flights to and from Melbourne for himself and a family member, and then flew to Sydney on 31/12/14 and returned on 1/1/15.   😀

And Birmingham claimed a cab fare of $62.53.   😉

And as usual, the Turdball is playing part time PM, and MIA … AGAIN!   😯

And the question is… “How much longer are the voting public of Australia going to put up with the blatant lies, rorting, stupidity and downright corruption of these right wing nut-jobs, living in their self made world of …

Post-truth-morals-ethics and intelligence???   😦

Merry Christmas Truth Seekers

Merry Christmas Truth Seekerscharlie1

Well, as the year winds down, and the new year looms large, and dare I say, somewhat scary, we can only wonder what 2017 will bring???   ❓

And as Canavan, the federal resources minister, supports Adani and their business structures based in the Caymans, despite corruption allegations being investigated by their home state of India, and large clouds still hanging over their heads over previous allegations, it’s becoming increasingly “Crystal Clear” that the LNPee’ers only interest is that of their crooked corporate donors/masters, and after all… What’s a lazy Billion between friends… Especially when it’s not your money anyway???   👿

There is also the ever present spectacle of the imminent demise of the Turdball, as Corgi Barnyardi and Georgie Porgie Christensen, talk about splitting from the Libs, to start their own version of Pauline Hanson/James Ashby’s “One Notion”  along with The Abbott, Abetz and a plethora of other LNP nut-jobs publicly blaming Turdball for the current level of LNP instability???   😀

And speaking of Pauline Hanson…   :mrgreen:   , and her “One Notion” which seems to beHansonRoberts hell bent on dividing our “One Nation” into as many competing right wing nut-job parties as is possible, with the level of STUPID in her party reaching dizzying heights, as their collective IQ struggles to make double digits   🙄   , one has to wonder just how long before some (Sarcasm alert) “genius” in the party, hits the self destruct button so hard that not only the party, but the button itself… destructs!   😯      Now there’s one Christmas present the majority of the country would appreciate!!!   🙂

But I digress   😛

Now, I have to say that 2016 has been a somewhat less than great year, on a personal note, with numerous health and other issues for us and our family, that have taken a heavy toll, and has been reflected in my writing, or lack thereof, so I would like to say a huge thanks to all my loyal friends and readers who have hung around for my sporadic musings of late, and I’m hoping that, despite the aforementioned worries for the year ahead, 2017 will be a much better year for us all!   😉

So I wish you all a very merry Christmas and the best possible new year.   🙂

And my hope for Australia and the world in general, in 2017, is that all the lying, corrupt bastard, right wing nut-jobs get everything that they deserve!   😛

And it’s not too late to reclaim a future for our kids and grandkids!

My sister found this rare Tull vid, and I thought it would be a nice to share it with you all   😉

Stay safe and well guys, and rest up for the year ahead, cos the fight continues!  😦

Cheers   🙂

With the Christmas now upon us

With the Christmas now upon us.

So, as the worst (and I use the term very loosely) “government” in our history, scrapesTurnbull 2+ through another year, and managed to dodge the accountability bullet, by barely sitting, and never answering any questions, on the odd occasions that they did sit, we end another year of wasted opportunities on critical issues such as;

  • The economy
  • Climate change
  • Health
  • Education

And it’s interesting that under this Mendacious Mob of Miscreants, all the main indicators for the aforementioned “Critical issues” are, like their flagging poll numbers, heading south at an arguably unprecedented rate of knots!   😛

Of course, according to Turdball,  his economically illiterate sidekick Snott Moronscum, and this no account, morally bankrupt LNP mob… It’s all Labors fault!!!   😯

So, the question most thinking Australians are, or should, be asking themselves is…”How many years does this mob have to be in power before they actually take responsibility for… Well anything???   ❓

Sadly, I think the short answer is… They never will!   😡

So;  With the Christmas now upon us…

😉

With the Christmas now upon us

And the Parliament in recess

And the right wing of the LNP

Causing Turdball naught but stress

With his “leadership” in crisis

As the backbench calls the shots

And the born to rulers trying hard

To tame those loud have-nots

😯

With their corporate tax agenda

Preaching for the trickle down

While the economy goes backwards

With this economic clown

And the climate change deniers there

Are pulling Turdball’s strings

As he lies and backflips constantly

To the tune the right wing sings

🙄

The princples he may have had

Have long since bit the dust

And the “Steel trap” mind he’s credited with

Is clogged with right wing rust

He’s the consummate pretender

The penultimate hollow man

And a major disappointment

To all those who were a fan

😦

So for Turdball and the LNP

There ain’t much Christmas cheer

Cos the rabid rights agenda

Will soon bite them on the rear

As the climate isn’t listening

To their waffle and their spin

And just like the tide for King Canute

It’s always gonna win

😛

So the Chrissy party’s been called off

And the drinkies have been canned

And discussion of good policy

Like the experts… Have been banned

And the Turball’s in protection

From his own teams rabid right

With the back bench PM Christensen

Giving Turdball quite a fright

👿

And the Abbott’s in the background

Playing spoiler once again

While the country thinks the whole damned lot

Are really quite insane

With Bernadi saying ETS talk

Is the dumbest thing he’s heard

But coming from the dumbest pollie

It’s really quite absurd

😀

And deputy dawg Bananaby

Is just a laughingstock

A second rate accountant

And a raving bloody cock

A man of tiny intellect

And morals sadly lacking

The nationals made him leader

When he really just needs sacking

😡

We thought we saw incompetence

When Hockey held the purse

But treasurer Snott Moronscum

Is proving even worse

He’s an economic time bomb

That has made our country poorer

And he’ll drive us to recession

And of that there’s nothing surer

😦

They’re a cabal of incompetents

Of that there is no doubt

And our new years resolution must be

To kick the bastards out

Cos a full term of the Turdball

And his nut-job LNP

Will visit rack and ruin

On our wonderful country

😡

So make the most of Christmas

And ignore the ruling classes

And when the new year comes around

Lets kick their lying arses

Cos we need a decent government

That’s serving you and me

Not the corporate puppet masters

Of the rabid LNP!

👿

Turdball 2+1

The vagaries of a “Post-Truth” world

The vagaries of a “Post-Truth” world.trump

As the world comes to terms with the fact that, despite belief amongst most political pundits/tragics (Yours truly included) , that the good old boys of the US of A could not/ would not be so stupid as to elect Donald T (party) Rump as the next “Leader of the free world”… They did   😯

Now, we in Australia really shouldn’t be that surprised by this eventuality, as we are seemingly leading the world in “STUPID”, since the unlikely election of firstly, the political thug Abbott and his cronies, closely followed by his political assassin and the morally bankrupt/devoid Malaise Turdball MP (Manic Personality), PM (Prime Miscreant), AKA the Waffling Wanker from Wentworth, and his cronies, including but not limited to  the master of stupid, the one and only (Thank God) Bananaby Juice MP (Maniacs Personified) and deputy PM (Prime MORON!)!   🙄

HansonRobertsThen, to add insult to injury, the aforementioned Waffling Wanker took us to a DD that resulted in the second coming of The Rambling Rabid Right Redhead from PHON, and her cohort of conspiracy crazes , like Malcolm (I need empirical evidence that he actually has some working brain cells) Roberts   O_o   , not to mention the head banging Xylophone band, and the human headline, who’s self declared first and only vote was to get himself elected… WTF???

So, here we are in this post-truth world, which is in reality more like a parallel  universe, where everything we valued as worthwhile and decent is in fact worthless and indecent; where truth is an expendable commodity, and the real political currency is propaganda and spin; where facts are irrelevant, and the success of a political party is determined not by the number of good policies passed in the name of “The national interest”, but rather the number of lies that can be sold to a majority of totally gullible, unsuspecting and apathetic citizenry; and where a blatantly despicable and corrupt ruling class is accepted as “The norm”!   😡

The sad reality is that after literally months of introspection, this political tragic has come to the undeniable conclusion that I have a palpable anger about the state of the body politic in this country and around the world more generally, that I’ve never felt before.

Now, I have felt anger towards politicians before, like during the Whitlam dismissal of 1975, when Fraser manipulated the system with the help of Joh Bjelke-Petersen and John Kerr, and then many times during the Howard years, but nothing like the anger that I’m feeling towards this current iteration of the rabid right!   👿

For quite some time now, there has been a pervading sense  of doom, gloom and ever despairing resignation over politics in this country, and apparently around the world, where those of us with some mental capacity have had to sit back and watch, as the lies, spin and propaganda of the rabid right have invaded the sensibilities of average punters, to the extent that they have seemingly lost the will and/or ability to think for themselves, and are more than happy to be led by the nose, lemming like, towards their own imminent demise.   😦

A classic example is the USA, where after years of trying to dig their way out of the hole that they found themselves in, as a direct result of the excesses of the banking and corporate sectors, they finally start to see some light at the end of the GFC tunnel, and immediately turn that light into train, by electing one Donald T (party) Rump, and giving carte blanche to the Republicans to reintroduce many of the policies and ideologies that dug the aforementioned GFC hole, in the first place!   😯

Likewise here, where we have a mendacious mob of miscreants, allegedly running the show, firstly under the appalling Abbott, who like Rump was elected on right wing myths, lies and propaganda, followed closely by the penultimate “Hollow Man” Malaise Turdball, who got in basically on the premise that he wasn’t Abbott, only to then go about disproving that misconception, by proving that in fact he’s actually worse than Abbott… Just in a better suit!    👿

But I digress   😛

Meanwhile back at my unprecedented anger:   😡

I watched the despicable Turdball in QT during the second last sitting week, waffling on about respect, followed shortly thereafter by a prolonged and sustained attack on the lack of  principles of Shorten and the Labor party, and accusing them of everything that he and his LNPee’ers are blatantly guilty of… WTF??? … Talk about Right wing projection!     And in an effort to restrain myself from throwing something large at my lovely 55″ smart TV, I let loose with a few choice expletives, and then hit the mute button and started reflecting on why I have so much anger?

And what came into sharp focus was that the the real problem is that it isn’t just anger that I’m experiencing, but a total and complete lack of respect for the offices of  government ministers, and the once high and revered office of PM, and that I actively despise them and have nothing but contempt for them!   😯

This phenomenon was instigated by Abbott, as LOTO, where he showed a complete lack of respect for the then PM Julia Gillard, and a total disregard for the rule of law, and the truth, heralding the mainstream acceptance of the “Post-truth” era in Australian politics!

Now, there is no doubt that Little Johnny (Lying Rodent) Howard was the instigator of “Post-truth” politics, in this country, but Abbott took it mainstream, and then the thoroughly despicable Turdball used his mainstream persona perception as an LNP moderate to further exploit the “Post-truth” phenomena to further his own personal ambitions, at the expense of the poor, disadvantaged and the wider Australian community.   👿

And now, he’s quoting “Post-truth”, as an accusation against the Labor party, which is in and of itself “Post-truth”!!!   😛

So, as the uninformed and disaffected, prompted by the lies and propaganda of the rabid right, who propagated “Post-truth”, turn to those very same “Post-truth’ers”, and conspiracy theorists, to deliver them from the ideologies that they, by their votes are re-endorsng; those of us with more than a mere handful of working brain cells, can only sit back and shake our heads in despair at the prevailing levels of stupid.   😦

And as we wind up the dissection of the dissemination of post-truth in politics, AussieTurnbull 1++ style, we have just been subjected to the most blatant example the aforementioned “Post-truth” in a Turdball masterclass commonly known as COAG, where our illustrious “Post-truth” PM declared that:    Despite the overwhelming evidence of our very own chief scientist in his “Finkel” report handed to the LNP this week, along with other corroborating opinions and evidence from climate change and economics experts, including from the CSIRO, stating that The LNPee’ers very own “Direct action” is a croc that will not deliver the targets that we have signed up to, in Paris, and that a market based pricing mechanism will not only be effective in making sure we achieve our emissions  targets, but would also put downward pressure on electricity prices, saving us, the consumers billions of $’s; he and his LNP backbenchers know better than all the aforementioned experts!!!   W…T…F???   😯

And so, as sheer bewilderment and  frustration turns to raging anger, and a deep and abiding sense of genuine fear for the future of mankind, combined with a complete loathing for the rabid right, who, as usual, totally ignore truth and facts, for the sake of bat shit crazy ideology and blatant self interest, our only options are to sit back, and watch, wonder and ponder;

The level of STUPID that brought us to this point

The slow motion train wreck that is the Muddick/IPA/LNP gov

And…  The vagaries of a “Post-truth” world???

Said the Abbott to the rank and file

Said the Abbott to the rank and file…abbotts-mouth

Well, as the Abbott has once again raised his ugly head, I thought it was time for another instalment of the “Said the Abbott…” poem series   😯

I was hoping to have it posted a few days ago, but like everything these days, it took a whole lot longer than it should   😡   But we got there in the end   🙂

Oh, and I know that “Rank and file” is a tad low rent for the LNP, but “Rank”, (and I do mean “RANK” in the most odious sense of the word) seems more than appropriate for the idiots that support this Mendacious Mob of Miscreants, especially in NSW!   😛

But it also applies across the nation   😀

So…

Said the Abbott to the “rank” and file…

 

Said the Abbott to the rank and file

You need to have your say

Cos the factions, that don’t quite exist

Are having too much, their own way

And as a future, er… umm… Past PM

My thoughts are all well known

And the rumours of my lies and spin

Are grossly overblown

😛

The moderates are all bleeding hearts

With pseudo left agendas

And NSW needs the rabid right

And our policy truth benders

Cos we can’t be wishy washy

And we need to tell it straight

But our cred has all but bolted

Through the moderates open gate

😯

And the PM, who I do support,

Is leading our great party

They say he’s smartest in the room

And he really is a… smarty???

His plan to run the country

Is a plan we all endorse

And even though he stabbed me in the back

I’ve got his back… Of course

😉

Said the rank and file to Abbott

Our numbers have diminished

And if we don’t reform real quick

In NSW we’re finished

Cos the ICAC has our measure

All our trusts accounts are blown

And our links to the Mafia and money laundering

Have now been clearly shown

😕

And the coalition federally

Has numbers that are tanking

And the waffler from Wentworth

Will deliver us a spanking

So we need a man of vision

And we need a man of guts

To renew the peoples confidence

In our party full of nuts

O_o

So we think we’ll stick with Turdball

And his sidekick Mikey Baird

Cos the terrorists and unionists

Have got us really scared

And our Liberal ideologies

Have taken quite a hit

And although the Turdball’s useless

As a PM, you were shit

😯

But we’ll keep our options open

Cos we’ve heard the backbench talking

And they say, with numbers going south

Our Mal’s a dead man walking

So we’ll stay the course with Turdball

Till a better choice appears

And he doesn’t wear your clown shoes

Or those silly monkey ears

😛

Said the Abbott to the Turdball

In Question Time you called me liar

And instead of showing leadership

You became an Abbott… Fryer

Which bloody Billy Shorten

Seemed to think was really neat

As he made you cock your Adler

And blow off both our feet

😡

And the whole thing looked quite silly

Though  a deal, I did not do

With that independent Lyingarse

Who’s dumped us in the poo

By side-tracking our agenda

On our A B C C con,

And relentless union bashing…

Our momentum has all gone

😡

Said the People to the LNP

You’ve really lost the plot

With your bullies in the Senate

And your credibility shot

And your ministers delusional

With the bullshit that they spout

And your lack of clear direction

Means you really should get out

😡

And pontificating waffle

Is the order of the day

As the really pressing issues

Are all glibly swept away

With your climate change denial

And backbenchers running riot

And all those bloody experts

That refuse to just keep quiet

😡

And we really need support

For the workers of our Nation

But all we get from the LNP

Is policy constipation

While first home buyers struggle

To get their first foot in the door

And your targets for austerity are

The old, the sick and poor

👿

You have lied, deceived and cheated

And exploited every rort

For the sake of wealthy donors

And just deny it, when you’re caught

And for Abbott and for Turdball

There is only one conclusion

When it comes to running Australia

They’ve been the REAL… Double Disillusion

CC, is it worth the risk?

CC. is it worth the risk?images

After watching the nut-job Malcolm Roberts on QandA, last Monday night, I felt compelled to respond.   😯

Despite his efforts, and his obvious understanding of the  dilemma that faces the planet, Brian Cox, was never going to make any headway with the sadly delusional Malcolm Roberts, as despite his calls for “Empirical Evidence”, the reality is that Roberts is not interested in any evidence that contradicts what he believes to be true.   😯

Although, having said that, I’m not personally convinced that Roberts truly believes his own demented ramblings, as much as he protests that he does?   😛   (But then he did cite Pauline Hanson, as one of the most intelligent people he’s ever known   😯   So who knows???   ❓   )

And his incessant demands for “Empirical Evidence” are only matched by his effort to dismiss any and all evidence put before him

So, what is “Empirical Evidence”?

  1. Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analysed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method.
  2. “Empirical evidence” or “scientific evidence” is evidence which serves the purpose of either supporting or countering a scientific hypothesis or theory.

Now, I may not be as smart as Professor  Brian Cox   😯   , but by those definitions, it seems to me that   “Empirical Evidence” is exactly what we have… But I digress   😉

Roberts+The truth is that Roberts is an ego maniac, and deluded fool, who would never even consider the possibility that he could be wrong , as evidenced by his performance on QandA , and his responses to the evidence that he was confronted with.

But the question needs to be asked, of all those who believe the plethora of crap that  is pervading the internet in regards  to CC;

“What is the worst case  scenario if  either  side is wrong”?????

Well, if those that believe the science (as I do), are wrong, but do what they believe needs to be done, then the worst case scenario is that we will end up with;

  1. A planet that is cleaner and greener than it otherwise would be
  2. A new world wide economy based on renewables
  3. A vastly more efficient, and  environmentally friendly energy sector
  4. A healthier populous, due to a reduction in pollution, amongst other things, reducing at least some of the pressure on grossly under resourced health services
  5. And hopefully a more environmentally aware, and responsible populous, that will leave the planet in a better condition for future generations to work with, appreciate and enjoy.

And on the other hand, if the CC deniers are wrong, but convince the powers that be, to do nothing, other than maintain the status quo then the worst case scenario is that;

  1. There will be potentially billions of environmental refugees
  2. Natural disasters, increasing in both frequency and intensity
  3. Coastal inundation on a grand scale
  4. Untold millions, if not billions, of people dying from the aforementioned natural disasters (Floods, droughts, fires etc etc)
  5. A populous battling the environment, for their very survival, with a vision and grip on the future that is tenuous at best!

Now, at this point, I have to say that I, for one, would be more than happy for all the scientists, and “empirical evidence” to be wrong, and for the likes of Malcolm Roberts et al to be able to say “We told you so”!

Sadly however, as Brian Cox pointed out to Roberts (Which the aforementioned Roberts summarily dismissed   😯   )  the overwhelming consensus of the science community is of the contrary view!

So, IMHO, the most important question that we need to ask ourselves is not who’s right or wrong, (Although, I, like most would argue that the evidence is clear   😛   ) but;

“When it comes to doing nothing about CC… Is it worth the risk???”

And the answer is a resounding NO!
