Wake up Australia…. While there’s still some Australia left!

Wake up Australia… While there’s still some Australia left!

It appears that we are our own worst enemies!   😦   TONY_WINTER_SM__57351.1378638419.1280.1280

The old adage of “She’ll be right mate”   has done us a great disservice, as we, as a nation, have rushed headlong into political apathy of biblical proportions, with so many voters at the last federal election stating;  “If Abbott’s no good, we’ll vote him out next time!”   🙄

So, on the recommendation, and support of, one of the most corrupt and self serving

Rupert "The Pirate" Murdoch, Puppet Master

Rupert “The Pirate” Murdoch, Puppet Master

individuals on the planet, one Rupert Murdoch, our futures were sold, both literally and figuratively, down the river.   👿

And here we are, approaching the second anniversary of the election that gave us… well pretty much… Nothing of benefit to our nation!   😯

Although, that’s not strictly true, as we have seen proof positive of the old adage “Self praise is no recommendation”, with;

  • Gross economic mismanagement, from the mob of self declared “Better economic managers”   😯
  • Puerile policy and general decision making, by the self declared “Adult Government”   🙄
  • Lies and gross dishonesty from the mob who went to the election claiming they were the ones you could trust… Apparently to lie to us   😈
  • More backflips than the Olympic athletics team   😉
  • Coverups and obfuscation from a mob that said they would be more accountable and transparent!   😯
  • The dog ate my homework, as the standard response, from a mob who promised no excuses   🙄
  • Etc etc…

And over the last few weeks, we’ve seen in no particular order:

  • Bronnie the consummate trough snouter, and doyen of the expenses rort   😈
  • Dyson, the integrity vacuum, sucking all credibility from the RC    😯
  • George Braindead, proving that he really is… Brain dead   😯
  • Hockey and Conmann Claiming that 0.2% growth is a good number for the last quarter , and that they’ve done a great job in turning the economy around… WTF   ❓
  • Piecer Mutton’s Border Farce, shot down in flames by social media, as the outrage at armed BF operatives planning spot checks on ID’s in the Melbourne CBD, reached fever pitch.   😛
  • And again with Piecer Mutton, the whining, whimpering, whinging zombie, complaining that Fairfax Media had declared a Jihad on the LNP… Aw didums   😥   (Karma’s a bitch, so suck it up zombie boy   😛   )
  • Abbott showing that at least his captains pick of Captain Hastie was a good one, as he, Hastie,  volunteered to throw himself on a hand-grenade (read Lolligobble bliss bomb   😯   ) lobbed by an impertinent Journo who had the temerity to ask if the Canning by-election was a referendum on his, Abbott’s, leadership   😯
  • And irony of ironies, the media now comparing our growth to that of Greece, , which had better growth than we did   😯
  • Etc etc…

And on the point of the economy, the reality is that if the previous Labor government had released these latest growth/ debt/deficit figures, Abbott, Hockey and co would not only have been screaming; gross economic mismanagement,  recession, the sky is falling, the world as we know it is coming to an end… but full blown depression with triple twist and pike   😯

And WRT Hastie and his effort to “Take one for his glorious leader”   😯  in his gungHastieho zeal, he forgot to answer the question that was asked   🙄  with the highlight of his heroic gesture,  his “Mission failure is not an option” retort… to which Abbott let out a somewhat hysterical/maniacal  giggle   O_o   😕   o_O   WTF   😯   But he did prove that he’s just as vacuous as the rest of the LNP, and therefore a perfect fit… Another dickhead in the fold!  😯

And speaking of dickheads, how’s Dyson’s form, admitting that he can’t send or receive emails, or open attachments   😯   , but is perfectly competent to adjudicate on his own perceived bias   🙄

This is the same Dyson Heydon who handled Kathy Jackson with kid gloves, even thoughHeydons LNP cap+ he was in receipt of, at the very least, a large amount of the evidence that was used in the civil case against her; that subsequently found that she owed the HSU $1.4 million  that she fraudulently misappropriated from them.   😯

One can only assume that the evidence that Heydon had, was overlooked, cos it was on an email attachment!   🙄

He also dismissed complaints of intimidation of commission witnesses, made  by Peter Wicks and others, WRT  Marco Balano!   WTF   ❓

Eminently qualified   O_o   😕   o_O   🙄

DysonHeydon+

The truth is that after two bloody long years of what we laughingly call LNP Government, all we have to show for it is

  • International embarrassment   😳
  • A tanking economy   😡
  • Social division   😈
  • A looming fascist state   👿
  • Lunatics in charge of the asylum   O_o   😕
  • And a very bleak future   😦

So with one more year of this complete madness to go, and the Canning by-election looming as the only option for a circuit breaker, all I can say to the voters of Canning, and then Australia more generally is:

Wake up Australia… While there’s still some Australia left!

    Well said Truthy, and the seriously sad thing is that … there are apparently 40% of Australians willing to vote for this ‘ship of fools’ all over again. Perhaps those Kiwi jokes about dumb Aussies, are really not funny any more ? Just sayin like … 😦

      Hey Judes 🙂

      Yes, that is seriously sad 😦 As I said “Political apathy of biblical proportions” 😦
      But I have to say that I wouldn’t be surprised to see it closer to 30% , which is the rough number of rusted ons, that would vote for Pol Pot if he was endorsed by the LNP 😯 IDIOTS!

      BTW I haven’t forgotten about your stick men, although I’m having some troubles sticking to just “stick men” , but I’ll send you something over the weekend, to have a look at, all being well 😉

    I watched the Four Corners report on 7 eleven stores .
    Wonder when Abbott will announce a Royal Commission into those crooked bastards ?
    And Truthy ,
    Some people are waking up, like the Medical fraternity

    The Royal College of Nursing has weighed in on Prime Minister Tony Abbotts attacks on health care and the Medicare levy

    The Allergists voted to scratch it; but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves
    The Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the
    Government had a lot of nerve.
    The Obstetricians felt they were all labouring under a misconception.Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.
    Pathologists yelled, “Over my dead body!” while thePaediatricians said, “Oh, Grow up.”
    The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it.
    The Surgeons were fed up with the cuts and decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.The Ear Nose and Throat specialists didn’t swallow it, and just wouldn’t hear of it.
    The Pharmacists thought it was a bitter pill to swallow, and the Plastic Surgeons said, “This puts a
    whole new face on the matter….”
    The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed off at the whole idea.
    The Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, but the Cardiologists didn’t have the heart to say no.
    In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the arseholes in the LNP
    partyroom to sort Abbott out

        the psychologists know bugger all mate,
        A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with five young mothers and their small children. “You all have obsessions,” he observed.
        To the first mother, Mary, he said: “You are obsessed with eating. You’ve even named your daughter Candy.”
        He turned to the second Mum, Ann: “Your obsession is with money. It manifests itself in your children’s names, Penny, Goldie and Frank.
        He turned to the third Mum, Joyce: “Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your children’s names: Brandy and Sherry. You even called the cat, “Whisky”.
        He then turned to the fourth Mum June: “Your obsession is with flowers. Your girls are called Rose, Daphne & Poppy.”

        At this point, the fifth mother, Kathy, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered: “Come on, Dick, this guy has no idea what he’s talking about. Let’s pick up Fanny and Willy and go home.”

          The theatre was silent. The case had meandered along for over an hour. The orthopedic surgeon still hadn’t spoken a word to the student who stood on tip-toes peering over the registrar’s arm. The student was visibly nervous on his first day assisting in the operating theatre with his new team. He desperately wanted to make a good first impression.

          Without warning the orthopod broke the silence and looked straight at the medical student, “what’s your name?”.

          “Umm, Steve… its Steven, Mr. Symonds”.

          “Right Steven… tell me the funniest joke you know.”

          The scrub nurse and anesthetist shared a premonitory exchange of glances. Steven paused in thought trying to gauge the situation and come up with a joke at the same time.

          “OK then… have you heard the one about the three dwarfs?”

          “No, I don’t believe I have.”

          Steven took a deep breath, then began:

          “Well, there were these three dwarfs sitting around a table knocking back a few beers. The first dwarf stroked his beard and said to the other two, “Look at my hands. Look how small they are. I reckon they must be the smallest hands in the entire world.” The other two dwarfs nodded in agreement. The third dwarf said, “I think you’re right, you should go down to see the people at the Guinness Book of World Records and see if you get in.” The first dwarf smiled, “That’s a great idea.”

          The second dwarf added “Actually I reckon I might pay them a visit too – look at my feet, they’re tiny. They must be the smallest feet in the world.” The other two dwarfs were startled by how small his feet were. The first dwarf said, “They’re tiny all right, you should come with me.”

          The third dwarf, not wanting to be left out chimed in: “well I’ m going to come along as well – I’m certain that I’ve got the world’s smallest penis.” The other two dwarfs decided not to verify this claim but nodded, and the second dwarf said, “Well we’ll all go along together to see if we can get in the Guinness Book of World Records”.

          The three dwarfs jumped to their feet and set off to the offices of the Guinness Book of World Records as fast as their little legs would take them. Once they arrived, the first dwarf was called into the assessor’s room. He was gone for almost an hour. Finally he emerged from the room with a triumphant grin, “I’m in! My hands are the smallest in the world.”

          The second dwarf was called in next. He too emerged with a beaming smile. “I’m in too! These feet are the smallest in the whole world!”

          Finally, The third dwarf was called in. The first two dwarfs grew concerned as the clocked ticked and tocked. At last, after two hours the door opened and the third dwarf trudged out looking despondent.

          “What`s the matter?”, the first two dwarfs asked in unison.

          The third dwarf shook his head in frustration then shouted “Who the hell is Mr. Symonds?!?!””

    Thanks, Truthy. All you said is true. My greatest concern is the rise of fascism and the economy. These idiots can’t seem to go beyond their limited thinking and I fear for the future of young Australians who’ll be the ones to suffer here. It’s at the point that any future government will be unable to repair the damage. We;re on a serious downward spiral & all Abbott can talk about is war and that wretched death cult. It beggars belief that he has any support at all.

      Thanks Dee 🙂 and your concerns are definitely legitimate, as their only plan is for their own positions of power, with no thought for the future of our country or its people, with profits for the mega rich few being the only driving force 👿

      They have terminal, ideological tunnel vision, and another year of their stupidity and lies, may well put repair out of reach. 😡

      Part of me hopes that they get an absolute flogging in the Canning by-election, so that Abbott gets the boot, and part of me hopes that they can just scrape through, so that he will stay till the election for the sheer satisfaction of watching him go down big time 😈

      Having said that, Hastie bothers me for a number of reasons, not least of which was his reaction in the presser outlined in my article 😕 I thought it was way over the top, and showed that he’s so gung ho it’s scary 😯 and demonstrated, IMHO, that clear and rational thought is not his forté 😯

      He comes across as a typically arrogant, shoot first, take no prisoners, and ask questions later sort of a guy, which may be good in a war zone, but not so much in a peaceful electorate 🙄 where being a trained killer, is not necessarily the most desirable or applicable of qualifications 😯

    No Truthy. I found his comments today threatening. He obviously thinks he can bully his way out of answering relevant questions. His beliefs are part of who he is. If he can’t be forthright about them, he loses IMHO. I’m not at all fond of military types anyway and don’t support the Iraq war, the afganistan war or the vietnam war. (a long time ago). I could never vote for such a person. (but unfortunately don’t live in Canning, a little too far south for that) I don’t believe the LNP will sack Abbott as they have no other options. They aren’t prepared to move to the centre with Turnbull. IMHO they’re on a suicidal mission. Cutting off hands is just disgusting and brings us down to medieval standards. As a nation, we need to rise above this type of behaviour. Out damn spot!

      Dee, I also think he’s a bully, and certainly isn’t ready for public service.

      He reminds me a lot of Campbell Newman in his attitude and approach to things, and I too, thought that he is one that I could never vote for 😯

      He reminds me of someone who needs at least a couple of years of debriefing and therapy before he’s ready to assimilate back into civilian life 😯

      And for me the choice in Canning is clear cut 😉 but then there are a lot of weirdos out there! 😯

    PS. I live in a comfortable National Party seat. I’ve attempted political conversations at various times but its a closed shop. I’m firmly convinced that these people will die voting Liberal for no explicable reason. Many are pensioners and watching their savings dwindle. These are indeed the baby boomers who give us all the flak. They are set in their ways and unamenable to any change. Many think our dear leader is a joke, but still vote for him. All I can say is ????????
