Self praise is no recommendation!

Would I lie to youSelf praise is no recommendation!

This poem was started as a result of  watching Abbott’s presser, where he told us what a good job him and his government (Nyahahahahah   😆   😆   ) are doing… WTF?   😯

And there we were thinking, “they are an incompetent Mob of Mendacious miscreants”   O_o    or words to that effect   😉

So, how could we get it so wrong?   😯

How could he be so misunderstood?   ❓

Well, we didn’t get it wrong, and he wasn’t misunderstood, like always, his presser was nothing but a lie and spin-fest, to try and con the people… yet again… into believing his BS.   😈

Then last night I saw the mincing poodle, referring to himself as “A good minister”… And again… WTF?   😯

So it looks a lot like the rest of the LNP have also been taking self aggrandisement lessons, instead of the lesson they really do need to learn;


Self praise is no recommendation!


Self praise is no recommendation

I yelled at the TV

As I watched the right wing Abbott

Talking up his LNP

Like before he was elected

When he said he knew it all

About running an economy better

Than Labors “wrecking ball”


Saying interest rates and taxes

Are always lower, under Libs

But the one thing that we know for sure

Is that Abbott tells big fibs

And to sing his party’s praises

He would talk our country down

So with lies and stupid slogans

Phony Abbott went to town


To reinforce these right wing myths

They used old Murdoch’s papers

To spread their lies and right wing spin

And ignore their crooked capers

He went out to destroy careers

To further his own cause

Assassinating friend and foe

Without regret or pause


They cried “Budget emergency”

As Hockey took the lead

Claiming if they don’t fix “Labors mess”

Our country’s going to bleed

With his shonky take on numbers

And his count to “Eleventy”

He proved he wasn’t capable to

Run our economy

O_o   :/

But still the Media pressed ahead

To realise Murdoch’s ambition

Of running our great country through…

The nut-job coalition

And here we are 15 months down

The Abbott’s road to hell

And yet his nasty first budget

The Hockey still can’t sell


And stuff-up after stuff-up

Is the story of these knobs

Proving no one in the LNP

Is fit to do their jobs

But as the year comes to an end

The Abbott fronts the press

To play his game of lies and spin

Talking down his party’s mess


He praised his party’s courage

And he praised his party’s guts

And he said they’ve had a productive year

Which proves the Abbott’s nuts

He bragged about how he repealed

That toxic carbon tax

Ignoring world wide condemnation

And scientific facts


He claimed that every household

Would be so much better off

To the tune of five hundred and fifty bucks

Excuse me while I scoff

He said they had good policy

That was worthy of pursuing

While the people say they’re rubbish

And our country you are screwing


He said they’re high achievers

And the job they’ve done is great

But the proof of Abbott’s pudding is

Most would rather eat the plate

With hand on heart he told us that

“The buck stops here with me”

But we all know consequences don’t apply

When you’re in the LNP


His arrogance is astounding

And his hubris immense

He lives for ideology

Ignoring common sense

He has no social conscience

Cos it’s all about the money

He’s a laughingstock around the world

But for us it isn’t funny


He claimed success at the G20

But it really was a farce

With the blunder from downunder

Talking shit… Straight from his arse

He whinged about the senate

Blocking policies that are bad…

The policies he’s sticking by;

Which shows he’s raving mad


He’s a man of little substance

And a hypocrite supreme

And blowing his own trumpet

At the presser, was the theme

He suffers verbal diarrhoea

But mental constipation

And we need to make him understand

Self praise is no recommendation!

    Yes, yes, yes. You’re in fine fettle, Truthie.
    A couple of very best, favouritest bits, especially:
    He suffers verbal diarrhoea
    But mental constipation
    Would you like a suppository with that, Sir?
    So, my merry little elves, let’s get spending, spending, spending and do our Santa proud.

    Truthie that is excellent, you are like a great wine, you get better as you age. Keep up your great work. I don’t post much but I visit your site on a regular basis.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Joffa230 🙂 and thanks for your comment and kind words 😎

      It’s always good to know that you’re out there 😎 and likewise it’s always good to hear your comments 🙂

      Thanks again 😀

      Cheers 🙂

    Bloody well done Truthy 🙂
    The Xmas New Year period will see unsurpassed LNP shite spread on all by the MSM because there`ll be no counter in the HoR or Senate [remember last festive season when Murdoch took over completely?]
    So we`ll need all Indies to get “their” message out there and remind those who are still gullible idiots that Abbott does suffer mental constipation and the cure is to VOTE it out.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Biggy 🙂 and thanks mate 😀

      Yes mate, the only hope they have for a boost in the polls is if they’re all on holidays and not talking their shit 😯

      Keep up the good work mate 😉

      Cheers 😀

    Another Gem Thruthy,
    I can’t wait for your Xmas message rather like Liz 2′ each year.
    Our very own Action man is going to take a well earned holiday and with the news that Truss is looking poorly, you know that means that the Pumpkin Joyce could be acting PM. At which point Oz’s credibility will be the laughing stock of the world.

    Or could acting leader Joyce not become acting PM or would that fall on the shoulders of Mesma the succession line is not too clear from where I sit, perhaps I should take a bex and lie down.
    But look on the bright side no slogans for the period (I hope). May the force be with you.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Bilko 🙂 and hanks for that mate 🙂

      Yes, I’ve been thinking of a few posts for the Christmas and summer break 😉

      I agree, the only thing that Bananaby can run is… Himself ragged 😯 but then this government does have an embarrassment of … well… Embarrassments 🙄

      What a pack of morons! 😉

      Cheers mate 🙂

    Love way Shortens sent Pyne up this morning, saying we will fight him on the beach…..Yes if one has to tell us how good courageous and of strong character they are indeed in trouble.


  6. Frank Ston says:

    Good morning Truthy
    I believe one of the best short critiques of our Minister for Education was provided by Miss Ella Fitzgerald fumfteen years ago when she sang.
    “I’m wild again, beguiled again
    A simpering, whimpering child again
    Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered am I”


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Frank 🙂 Hope you’re feeling ok today mate? 🙂

      Yes, that sums him up pretty well 😀 he really is an over achiever in the “special kinda stupid” stakes 😯

      But then in the LNP there are many standouts in those stakes 🙄

      Cheers mate 🙂


  7. Frank Ston says:

    Thanks Truthy, and back at ya’.
    Bellows are working a bit harder than they are meant to, but we both know about that, eh?
    Bugger me, I’ve got that Fitzgerald sound stuck in my brain. I reckon the second line of the chorus (above) nails Pyne perfectly.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Frank, yeah mate, the humidity is slowing me down a bit, but got out early to help with putting up a couple of panels for the front fence and went to the shops before it gets too much 😦

      Yup, sure does 😉

      Bloody weather up here is all over the place, with the August winds coming in Sept/Oct, we’ve all but lost our mangos 😦 … What climate change?????

      Cheers mate

    Is it possible that your work is getting better.

    Sorry, forgot to mention, this was posted on Facebook by one of my former students. It’s a doozie.

    Another delicious offering Truthie 🙂
    Deserving of a custard tart and a blueberry muffin 😀


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Thanks Mel 🙂 A double bunger… Yummmm 😀

      Darts turned out to be a bilateral flogging 😉 But we had a laugh, and it’s more about the journey than the destination 😯

      And now for dinner 😉

    Brute Utopia

    Twisting and spinning their deceptive gyres;
    so busy with their little webs;
    The members do not hear the despised membership;
    The social contract falls apart;
    Democracy cannot hold;

    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the land,
    The corporate hounds let slip, and everywhere
    The cries of the innocent are drowned
    By the monstrous media.

    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity;
    And the predator’s ferocious joy.
    In an ecstasy of excess.

    Surely some revelation is at hand?
    Thatcher’s Second Coming ?
    Or silly Rapacious Reagan?
    Hayek at the very least.

    The Second Coming!
    Hardly are those words out
    When a hideous image appears.
    It’s not The New Jerusalem;
    This wasteland of insatiable greed,

    This bleak landscape of Consumer Land;
    Where entitled Philistines rule in the people’s name.
    Where Barons and Magnates of every kind;
    bind all others in irredeemable debt.

    These corrupt Servants of Mammon;
    Who know the price of everything,
    And the value of nothing.
    Summon up their Beast.
    This rough Beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Canberra to be reborn.
    With a pig’s body and the head of a man;
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,

    It rolls its great thighs, and does its sums;
    Puffs a fat cigar, self satisfied self server.
    Dances a jig of unrestrained delight;
    And pronounces our doom.

    Has The Beast employed a J curve,
    To shape a prosperous future?
    Or used a Hockey stick,
    To beat the people down?

    While all about it wheel afrighted birds,
    Their nests destroyed, all security gone;
    Screaming to no avail.
    The Beast is deaf.

    The Beast’s Budget breaks open
    Our fragile cracked democracy.
    What has he released?
    Spiderlings spill out; revealing Brute Utopia.

    The Beast is but its midwife

    And now bloated Corpocracy unfolds itself;
    Many eyed, many limbed, black web spinner;
    The insatiable predator that eats its young
    That in the end consumes itself.

    It strikes
    Paralyzed democracy convulses
    It gorges
    The Common Wealth is no more.
    The Brute Utopia triumphant

    With apologies to Yates, Wilde et al


    • bighead1883 says:

      Huzzah and worthy of Yates and Wilde phil.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Philgorman2014 Welcome to Truth Seekers 🙂 and thanks for your comment 😎

      Yes, that fairly well describes Abbott’s Australia 😡 and it’s becoming extremely evident that either they don’t know WTF they’re doing… Or they just don’t give a crap 😯

      Either way they’re doing us over 👿

      Thanks again for you input 😎 and I hope you can join our conversations again 🙂

      Cheers 🙂
