Sloppy Joe’s a jumper?

Sloppy Joe’s a jumper?Hockey1+

And as poet laureate to the G20 ( self appointed   😀   ), I felt it my duty to also cast a spotlight on the other Australian major player (and I do mean player   😉   )   at the G20.

The acting ( and I do mean ‘acting’   😯   )   Co-host, Treasurer ( and I use the title ‘Treasurer’ with tongue firmly planted in cheek   😉   ), Sloppy Joe Hockey, is the one that is there to guide the worlds finance ministers through this most important economic forum… WTF?   😯

And as the last day gets underway, and we are all still reeling from the gross embarrassment and cringe-worthiness of the Abbott’s foray into domestic political whinging on the world stage,  despite the worlds condemnation of his previous efforts in this area, we have to concede three things about Abbott and Hockey;

  1. They are both liars   😯
  2. They are both idiots   😯
  3. They never learn   🙄

And on those bombshells…

Sloppy Joe’s a Jumper


Sloppy Joe’s a jumper

Which is somewhat over size

But it’s also our fat treasurer

Who really takes the prize

For grossly overacting,

Economic lies and fear

For shedding lots of crocodile tears,

And verbal diarrhoea

He says that economically

There’s nothing he can’t fix

But the truth is, he’s just one of many

Liberal party Dicks


A man of grand proportions but,

Little brain capacity

Which makes him just a perfect fit

For the Abbott’s LNP

He suffers self-aggrandisement

He thinks he’s really smart

Whilst trying to sell his budget

Which was just a big brain fartsmoking1

He talks of heavy lifting

While he smokes his fat cigars

Of lifters and of leaners

But he’s talking through his arse


He wants to slug the unemployed

And pensioners as well

The frail, the sick and vulnerable in his

Version of right wing hell

He’s nasty, mean and tricky with

Austerity his only tool

Proving he’s no intellect

Just an economic fool

He danced around his office

King for a day, but a DICKHEAD forever!   :evil:

King for a day, but a DICKHEAD forever! 👿

When he brought his budget down

To “This is the best day of my life”

The rabid right wing clown


But the country wasn’t dancing

Cos it took a massive hit

From the fat man we call Sloppy Joe

And his budget, full of shit

He said we need co-payments to make

Medicare sustainable

But not one cent goes to Medicare

Proving, of crap, his budget’s full

He screams “Budget emergency”

And of our “Massive debt”

Which they’ve doubled since they came to power

And they haven’t finished yet


They’ve ordered very expensive planes that

Have question marks around,

How well the bloody things perform

When you get them off the ground

They’re called a “Joint” strike fighter

But its partner we can’t buy

Which is really bloody stupid

Cos its the one we know can fly

And the only firm conclusion

When we wonder what’s the point

Is that before they signed the contractimages

They must have smoked the bloody “Joint”

😯   O_o

And Sloppy Joe’s a jumper

Cos he quickly “jumped” on board

With right wing nut-jobs round the world

To sell their austerity fraud

And trickle down economics

Which is his ideological dream

Even though most respected economists know

It’s a right wing nut-job scheme

With no real sound foundation

To redistribute the wealth

Except to those that need it least

By dishonest right wing stealth


And as he steps up to the mike

To spruik his bad agendas

The world will see quite clearly that

We’re led by mad truth benders

With Abbott talking domestic fails

And Hockey much the same

They’re such a great embarrassment

And to Australia’s shame

Their policies are old and bad

They haven’t got clue

And Sloppy Joe like Abbott are,

Just full of cattle poo!

O_o   ^^’

Sloppy Joe’s Job creation scheme… WTF?

    Worse, they do not listen, not hear or see.

    When it comes to this mob, it is all gobshite,


  3. John lord says:

    Is it possible that you are getting better?


  4. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Passed angry, just amazed that Australia has reached this position, especially when we have so much going for us. As I have been saying for years, and reading of history proves my point. Labor builds. Liberals demolish.

    As Gillard said MRRT and CEF, along with Gonski will be back. Soon, I believe. The woman must be enjoying tis week. Tweets from Swan, show he is. The say the grins on Shorten, Plibersek and co were a mile wide at Obama’s address to the uni students.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Yes, it looks very much like Abbott’s agenda has been “shirtfronted” by Obama 😛

      And his first address was positively bizarre in the extreme 🙄 What a Knob!

      Cheers 🙂

    Truthy 🙂 the poem rounded the article in a “Jethro Tull” fashion and I O_o had Jack-A-Lynn from Mother Gooses going in my head as I read this 😯
    So Truthy 🙂 how did you do that 🙄 😯


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Biggy, thanks for that 🙂

      I still play mother goose 😀 (My own acoustic version) so maybe it was a subconscious connection ❓

      ❤ it 🙂

      Cheers mate 😀

    I got your email, but couldn’t open this one ;-{


  7. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Has one noticed, that our Tony has kept himself out in front for the whole G20. Been all about Tony from day one. All important issues have been swamped in the process. One will look back, and ask why was more not achieved.


  8. bilko says:

    Ah Truthy
    you’ve donit agin
    you are like a single malt just keeps getting better with age.
    A couple of things I could not grasp why did Kevin & Julia during their 6yrs in government continue with the school pastor thinnigy and the JSF. You had better keep this blog going because the abc(still not worth capitals) and the SBS will only have money to pay the LNP boardwarmers and screen captures saying “normal service will be resumed at the next change of Government sorry for the inconvenience”. Leaving us just with social media and internet downloads because we now have 20+ TV channels of free to air rubbish and reruns. I do not suscribe to pay tv or any papers and do I feel better for it.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Bilko 🙂 thanks for that mate 😀

      Mate I know what you mean about the TV, useless 😯

      I’m not planning on going anywhere, and am looking forward to when we don’t have to be embarrassed by this mob of incompetents anymore 😦

      well I just got back in, and now I have to go out again 🙄

      Cheers mate 😀


  9. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Gillard did not rescind Pastor legalisation. Probably politics. Would have made a big thing of her not believing. Always said she respected beliefs of others. What she did, was giver schools and parents another option. Allow welfare and youth workers to be employed, which I believe most schools were moving to. Abbott has told states if they want such workers, they are to come out of state budgets. Only religious people for his scheme.

    Government does not like being challenged in senate. Nice t5o see that toxic financial legislation go.


  10. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Yes, I wished she also dumped the scheme. Why they persist with such stupid schemes when no one wants them, is beyond me.

    Labor seems to be losing their patience in the senate. I suspect we will see more of this. Carr, is quiet angry in fact. They have wasted a morning with their blocking games this morning.


  11. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Well we now know, if one makes savings, handing money back to government is not cuts. Some committee they set up, know better than ABC SBS board. As Labor said, ABC generally goes looking for savings, to bring in new programmes and endeavours. What this mob is after, is what ABC has done on line. Things such as I-View and other interactive means.


  12. bilko says:

    the internal spinning is in the opposite direction to their external spin consequently they are static in mind and in body


  13. bilko says:

    just as an aside re the abc I can find no mention of the latest newspoll or the Govt defeat in the senate yesterday so it would appear that the abc cutbacks have already commenced and not declared as they are “operational matters” ,George Orwell must be spinnong in his grave. Come the revolution be afraid not alert thst is if they tell us it has arrived.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Bilko 🙂 Yes, they’ve spun themselves into a corner, and I doubt anyone believes the crap that Turdball and Conman have been spreading, not even them deep down! 😯 but they expect us to buy it hook line and stinker O_o :/

      Turdball said did anyone really believe that Abbott would ignore what he and Hockey had said?

      Well NO, he just lied to the voters to misappropriate their votes… Simple!

      And now they’re looking even more dodgy as they try to defend the indefensible!

      And WRT the ABC, I’m sure that that’s what the LNP are wanting!

      The funny thing being Turdball announcing the cuts, and then saying that he will recom end to the board that they employ two more executives to fill roles currently filled by Scott… WTF? Cut funding but employ more executives… Now that makes sense???? O_o

      Cheers mate 🙂


    • Frank Ston says:

      Good morning Sergeant (what’s today’s scam in the motor pool)
      Regarding the Financial Advisers regulations, I picked up some coverage on ABC24 this morning, including Schwarzenegger’s little brother getting very red in the face, just like Arnie squeezing another one out.
      I meant another bench press rep, what did you think I meant.


      • cornlegend says:

        they all got worked up yesterday Frank,
        Bloody steamimg they were , half on the Financial Regulation, the other half on what a terrible Premier Daniel Andrews will make , Union owned etc.
        They really were rattled and i think their internal party polling has told them that in Victoria we will have Premier Andrews a nd opposition Leader Naptime , in just 11 more sleeps :-}


      • Truth Seeker says:

        Morning Frank 🙂 Hope the day is treating you as well as it can 🙂

        The faux outrage from Abetz and Conman was really hypocritical and more than a little pathetic. Basically saying that it doesn’t matter if the advice is absolute crap, as long as it’s cheaper… W…T…F???

        They really do think we’re all as stupid as them? 🙄 Sadly some are 😯 and believe every word that dribbles from their gobs!

        There should be some kind of “Gullibility” meter to determine whether people should be allowed to vote, cos if they still believe anything that the LNP say,. they should automatically qualify for the DSP, as they are obviously mentally deficient! 😦

        Cheers mate 🙂


  14. bilko says:

    oops thst=that


  15. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Seems getting less money is not a cut.

    Getting less money in your wage packet is not a cut. The boss has decided after going through your expenses, you can live on less.

    Just like saying more money cannot fix anything.

    Trouble in the real world, this is not true. One never gets more for less. Why the continuous cutting of taxes especially to industry and higher income brackets, has led to budget deficits and falling revenues.

    No, one cannot do more with less.

    Malcolm, not our fault Abbott does not listen to what you and Joe said.

    Not out fault that this mob either ignored or choose to ridicule years of fiscal consolidation with ongoing efficiency Dividends , leaving no fat or money in hollow logs.

    Would love to know what was in the amended welfare bills passed early in week Believe also unemployment bills passed. Not clear whether they had Labor support.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Florence 🙂

      Yes, well I got it from the horses mouth, so to speak, that the staff cuts to Centrelink means that a lot of the staff that are there are now expected to do the same amount of work, with around half the staff, and as a consequence many don’t know WTF they’re doing? That combined with the changes in criteria means that it’s damned near impossible to qualify for the DSP etc.

      I was told yesterday, of a person who had a stroke only a few weeks ago, who was in hospital, not able to talk, walk and was barely aware of what was going on around them, who was being told by Centrelink that they still had to go to their their job placement provider, or their newstart would be cut off… WTF? 😈

      14 months of Adult gover 😆 😆 😆 , and the whole system has turned to GOBSHITE! 😯

      We need a DD now, before we see more blood on the streets! 😡

      Cheers 😦


  16. Florence nee Fedup says:

    If one is under 30, does not matter if pregnant or if one has kids. No exceptions.

    The trouble Abbott and his mob have., is that Gillard and Swan ea


    • Florence nee Fedup says:

      ………ran a tight shoo. There is no fat to be found. They also modernise most department, with state art computers. etc.


  17. Florence nee Fedup says:

    Costello at Senate estimations. As smug as ever. Especially with Cormann sitting beside him.


  18. Florence nee Fedup says:

    One needs to keep in mind, Scott was a Howard appointee. What they see, as needing destroying in not TV but the digital side. ABC have managed to use the internet too well, Fewer every day, rely on TV, radio or papers for news and communications. The online is so good, that one really6 has TV on demand. Yes, watch when it suits one.


    • driftwood12 says:

      There’s a hell of a lot left out of ABC coverage the public should be informed of or debating though Florence. In many respects there is still that Rupert type touch to it.

    “Good morning Sergeant (what’s today’s scam in the motor pool)”

    Frank – Now you know Ernie/Arnie/Tony, never does the heavy lifting everything is dumped on Dobermann aka Sloppy whose fuel comes cost free. so no indexing for them, to share the burden. I shall reduce the wifes grocery allowance and tell her it is an efficiency dividend, should go down as well as Sloppy’s lead balloon budget

    Welcome to America. I’m not sure if all this draft passed or not. Passages didnt align with human rights. So they’ve scraped the barrel with this one. Amusing to see a statement saying youth should “have the right” to negotiate wages and conditions. In other words they are to be lorded over.
    Still trying to see what part labour and greens played in this. On top of this and increasing unemployment , we are being dressed up for another housing hit and foreign workers.
    I’m not sure how far down the track the cops will be shooting people. The italians were very good at knowing what weeds you can eat on the side of the road when they came over.
    Here comes massive inequality and cruelty fellow serfs.


  21. driftwood12 says:

    Depressing to see the campaigns against publicly funding coal mines in Qld has no signature petitions, just wanting donations. There is a chance Obama’s speech of coal is for the uranium mines in WA as too may be the theatre of Qld coal mines. There is no public scrutiny allowed of the deal of costs and returns etc or any of the business associated with it.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      BHP Billiton has just said that the Carbon pricing should be brought back, as It’s now essential for the company’s future viability 😯

      Well paint me rusty and call me Iron man It must have cost them millions to come to that point… I wonder iff Abbott has stopped hyperventilating yet? 😛
