What The Frack is going on with this mob we laughingly call “A Government”?
Now, I use the word “laughingly”, as a derogatory term, as there is little in what they are doing that is “funny Ha Ha”, but plenty that is “funny peculiar”!
For instance, It’s funny, that at a time when the world is moving inexorably towards an ETS or some other “Market based” carbon abatement scheme, a party that shouts from the roof tops at every opportunity, that the “Market” should be allowed to determine the price of pretty much everything, and should be self regulating; is seeking to repeal our own market based mechanism, courtesy of Abbott and Hunt! WTF?
But rather than having a bloody good chuckle, the world is looking at us and shaking their collective heads, in disbelief at the gross hypocrisy and stupidity, of a country that is going from “Hero” to “Zero” in less than a year, as a result of a change of government? And I say yet again: “Not in our name!”
Then there’s Abbott and SHockey, and there’s nothing “funny” about the way they’re proposing to rip the heart out of support for the elderly, the sick and disabled, the unemployed, students, apprentices and the under 30’s.
It is however “funny” that whilst attacking the most vulnerable in our society, they are happily handing billions of tax payers $’s to big business and multi nationals, to subsidise their mega profits. W…T…F? And again I say… “Not in our name!”
There’s nothing “funny” about taking 100 + Billion from the RC into Child Abuse, so that they do not have the funds required to finish the job they started.
But it is “funny” that those, badly needed, funds have been redirected to an LNP “Witch Hunt” RC, to attack the ALP? W…T…F? “Not in our name!”
It’s funny how they think that charging a further $7.00 for doctors visits, pathology, Xrays etc, will have virtually no impact on the overall health of the nation.
But pensioners and the poor, along with many doctors, health workers and even surgery owners are not laughing, as many aforementioned pensioners and poor are, and have been, since the announcement of the measure, cancelling their doctors appointments, believing that it is already imposed upon us. with reports that visits to doctors, pathologists etc, in some areas, are down by as much as 40%. W…T…F? “NOT in our name”
But I have to say there’s NOTHING “funny” about the way that Abbott and Morrison are working hard to show the world what a heartless, selfish, dishonest and dishonourable nation we have become, as a result of our despicable treatment of Asylum Seekers under the ideological zeal of these disgusting right wing nut-jobs.
Now at this point, as many of these right wing nut-jobs claim to be “Christians”, and as a Christian myself, (who is absolutely appalled at the actions of these “Christians”?) I am about to break my own rule, albeit briefly, to see what Jesus says.
In Mathew: 25, “The parable of the sheep and the goats”, he has plenty to say to the likes of Abbott et al.
Now I was going to post the entire text, and for those that would like to read it, it can be found by clicking here, but I remembered a much more entertaining way to demonstrate the message.
So here is the exact passage put to music by the late, great Keith Green. And for those that are quick to point at Christianity as the problem, I would implore you to take 8 minutes of your time to listen to this parable, as it is relevant to all these issues, and shows how Christians are expected to act!
A Christian is supposed to be, literally a “follower of Christ”, so I have two things to say to Abbott and his largely “Christian” cabinet:
- You are promoting nothing but discredit, and disdain for the Christian church!
- And as a nation, both Christian and secular we say… Not in our name Mr Abbott!
