So, we’ve all got to help do the heavy lifting?… WTF?images

The problem that I have with this call to “alms”, by Sloppy Joe, as he cries poor, is that he’s still telling lies about the economy, using his own dodgy formulas to claim that the other lies that they’ve told were justified, because “His” (Fudged) figures  show clearly that their previous lies on Gonski, NDIS, pensions, health etc etc etc, are not lies or broken promises, but nothing more than the fault of Labor… WTF?

How convenient?   😯

Kaye Lee has written a great article on AIMN, about Abbott and Hockeys misleading figures.

The Hockey thunderhead   :wink:

The Hockey thunderhead    😉

And perversely, whilst the obligatory apoplectic LNP outrage, is most evident in the venom and bile that he unleashes at every opportunity, accompanied by the roiling thunderhead of, barely contained, feigned anger, on the “Economic Mismanagement” of the previous government, he still manages to defend the indefensible, in his calls for the scrapping of the “Carbon Tax”      (price   😛  ) and the MRRT.

Now I’m no economist, (But then neither is Hockey… apparently?) but if you are calling for everyone to “Help do the “economic” heavy  lifting”, why would you be;

  • Trying to repeal the Carbon Price, which is adding substatially to the governments apparently dwindling coffers?
  • Trying to repeal the MRRT, which is earning a few hundred million dollars, and with some tweaking could add considerably more to the coffers?
  • Maintaining massive subsidies for the minerals sector and the big end of town?
  • Stubbornly sticking to your stupid and inequitable  PPL scheme, while cutting funding for child care services, which is the REAL area of need for supporting working families, as opposed to paying them to have more kids that most will NOT be able to afford to have in child care, putting the lie to your claims of it helping productivity and participation rates for working women/mothers?
  • Supporting huge wage increases for politicians?
  • Encouraging state governments to “Recycle”, read bargain basement sell off, of publicly owned assets, which are currently paying dividends to said state coffers, and which would invariably further add to the already spiralling cost of living pressures, which BTW, you PROMISED to ease?   😯

    Eleventy seven ?  Mmm…  sounds about right!

    Eleventy seven ? Mmm… sounds about right!

Why then, given the glaring holes in your arguments, would you expect that the “average” australian voter will happily watch as their elderly parents, grandparents, disabled children and partners etc, who in many if not most  cases are already living at subsistence levels, take further hits to their ability to clothe and feed themselves, and pay their bills?

The fact is, we live in a very rich country that is being raped and pillaged for the sake of mega profits for a handful, while the majority live week to week and hand to mouth.

So before you systematically tear down this country’s economy and societal fabric, in the name of blind, right wing ideology, look to the failures and lessons of the past and learn from them, instead of cyclically repeating them ad-infinitum.

Get away from this unhealthy obsession with surpluses, and the pretence that you, despite all the evidence to the contrary, still believe in the “Trickle down effect”, which only serves to increase the every widening  disparity between the “Haves” and the “Have nots”.

So Joe, stop lying about the economy, and the reasons for the cuts!

And if you are still determined to further marginalise the poorest and most vulnerable in our society, whilst trashing our economy and our country, at least have the guts to be honest, and tell them/us the real reasons why; when you, your LNP mates and supporters are doing very nicely thank you, you are telling us:

So, we’ve all got to help do the heavy lifting?…   W…T…F?

    Well said, Truth Seeker.

    Joe Hockey seems to have developed the ability to dazzle the less aware of our society with his apparent economic nous. Those in the know are cognisant of the fact he is a complete financial nincompoop.

    His phony umbrage & hubris makes him a laughing stock which seems to be a common trait amongst the Abbott front bench. The Peter Principle in action.

      Joy, thanks for that 😀 as always, I appreciate your comments and feedback 😎

      Yes, they seem to work on the assumption that as long as, to the casual observer, you sound and act like you know what you’re talking about, and do it often enough, you don’t actually have to know diddly squat!

      And Hockey not only reinforces the point, he proves it beyond reasonable doubt! 😯

      Cheers 😀

        Thanks TS. 🙂 Hockey’s bluff & bluster doesn’t fool those of us who realise it is all hot air (adding to our pollution). The man is clueless & the thunderous expressions are to mask his “what the hell do I say next?” thinking.

        PS Tweeted this. 😉

          Joy, yes, you’re right, although when writing this piece, it occurred to me that maybe Hockey is really angry, but not for the reasons he says, but rather because like Abbott, his only focus was winning, and gave scant regard for what happens if and when they do 😯

          And like you said, now he’s completely out of his depth, and has no idea what to do or say next! 😦

          Cheers 😀

      Hey Biggy, 😀

      Yes mate, he is a bully, and he’s using their old bully boy tactics to base their governing style on; primarily picking on the least able to defend themselves, and hitting them hard, just like the cowards that bullies are. 👿

      Cheers mate 😀

    What a hypocrite Hockey is.
    He doubles the deficit, blames it on Labor and then tells US that we will have to do the heavy lifting to get him out of the hole he put us in.
    What a grub.
    If those voting in W.A. support his lot this weekend, they deserve all they get.
    The trouble is the whole bloody country will cop it too, if they get the numbers.
    Let`s keep our fingers crossed that sanity will prevail.
    Cheers M8.

      Consider, yes mate but then hypocrisy is in their DNA, just like blaming Labor for their own stuff ups 😯

      You wouldn’t trust them to run a chook raffle, as they’d sell all the tickets twice, and then run off with the chooks and claim they were stolen, so that they could do it all again 🙄

      BTW, Cornie’s already working on our conference 😀

      Cheers mate 😀

    We do have to deal with the heavy lifting as thanks to us, not to mention the despicable labour government we have had, our economy is in the toilet. So don’t immediately blame Hockey. His “lies” might be what saves us from another Depression.

      Edward, welcome 😀 and thanks for your comment.

      Sadly you have been lied to, by those that you obviously trust 😦 “Despicable Labor” as you ill-informedly refer to them, saved Australia from the worst global financial crisis since the great depression.

      They were globally recognised for the Great fiscal work that they did, with Swann being awarded “Finance Minister of the year, and the third AAA rating, awarded while the rest of the world were still trying to figure out what to do. 😯

      Our Economy is only in Joe Hockey’s toilet, where he’s spent the last three+ years trying to flush it.

      Like Newman, he has fudged the figures, to suit his own agenda, and it’s his “lies” and they are LIES That are what is the biggest threat to our economy.

      If you are interested in the truth about the lies we are being sold by this, the worst government in history, and their complicit MSM, follow the link to Kaye Lee’s article, and go from there, cos if you genuinely care about this great country, it is your duty to find out THE TRUTH, and act accordingly! 😯

      So happy hunting , and remember “The Truth Will Set You FREE” 😀

      Cheers 😀
