Border Force… WTF?
When I heard the name “Border Force”, coming out of the TV, my first thought was B grade 70’s TV show. 🙄
Then I saw the “Black is the new brown” shirt, corporate uniform, and immediately realised this was not just a bad joke, but Abbott playing Rambo again! 😡
Now emotionally, I want to just punch his lights out, whilst telling him to bloody well GROW UP! But the rational side of me wants to ask WTF are you doing, you dickhead? ❓
I mean really! Is scaring old ladies and firing up the redneck contingent the best he’s got?
The truth is, we have the Army, we have the Airforce, we have the Navy, we have the AFP and state police forces, we have ASIO and Customs… WTF do we need another “FORCE” for? 😕
And when we have been told over and over, that we (The poor, the disabled, the pensioners, the unemployed the sick, the students, the homeless and dispossessed) have to tighten our collective belts, cos of Abbott and Hockey’s confected “Budget Emergency”, I don’t understand how we have suddenly found millions to finance another of Abbott’s muscle flexing thought bubble/brain farts? 😡
Then whilst still seething over this gross stupidity, George Braindead’s and Pissy Cryin’s stupidity, not to mention Abbott and Julie Bitch-chops misleading… pretty much everyone… on everything 😯 and the news that they are now considering secret court hearings to provide phone taps, search warrants etc, we had Bananaby Juice, on insiders, pontificating over his reasons for accepting a place on QandA whilst claiming that they, the ABC have seen the error of their ways, which was just as well, as the next step would be fascists on the show… W…T…F… ❓ 😯 Hello!
Bananaby, that ship has already sailed and sunk on the back of Wilson, Ciobo and a plethora of other IPA and LNP, rabid right wing nut-jobs, and you were planning to be there on Monday night. 🙄
But then we heard that Abbott had pulled the pin on Bananaby anyway! 😛 … Fascists?… What fascists ❓
But I digress 🙄
Meanwhile, back at the “Border FORCE”, and the question WHY?
We are supposedly a first world country 😯 , and a bloody big island, a long way from most of the rest of the world, and we are being told that ISIS, with no Airforce, or Navy, and only a relatively small army, comprising a group of thugs, rapists, murderers and fanatics, based in and around Syria, are “Coming for us” 😯 and we need to spend millions more to protect our borders, and keep our citizenry safe???… And once more with feeling… WTF? 😡
The truth is that the only weapon that they have, that might threaten us, is the internet! 🙄 And although their speeds are probably better than ours, (Who’s aren’t 🙄 ) why not just employ a couple of teenage hackers, to block them and infect their computers with viruses? 😉 They could even give the hackers black uniforms… for effect! 😉
That would then presumably free up millions of dollars, so that:
- People with real disabilities could access the DSP, instead of languishing on Newstart, for around $100.00 less a fortnight, and having to spend money they don’t have, going for interviews for jobs that aren’t available, and they’d never get even if they were available, cos they’re not capable due to their disability! Grrrr 😡
- Pensioners would not need to be threatened with cuts to their meagre pittance! 😦
- Jobs could be created for the young and long term unemployed by investing in such radical ideas as renewables, and the new innovation, science and technology jobs of the 21st century. 😯
- AVO’s can be enforced, and the hundreds, if not thousands, of domestic violence victims, each year, can get support from more emergency accommodation, and better police protection! 😡
So IMHO, the only new “FORCE” that we need is some “body” that could “FORCE”:
- Bronnie ‘Helmet Hair’ Bitch-chops to stop trashing our democracy! 😈
- The LNP’ers to “stop the fear-mongering”! 😡
- The “Government” to set the right priorities! 😯
- Abbott and his Mob of Mendacious Miscreants, to TELL THE BLOODY TRUTH! 😯
And in conclusion…
Border Force… WTF?
