The vagaries of a “Post-Truth” world

The vagaries of a “Post-Truth” world.trump

As the world comes to terms with the fact that, despite belief amongst most political pundits/tragics (Yours truly included) , that the good old boys of the US of A could not/ would not be so stupid as to elect Donald T (party) Rump as the next “Leader of the free world”… They did   😯

Now, we in Australia really shouldn’t be that surprised by this eventuality, as we are seemingly leading the world in “STUPID”, since the unlikely election of firstly, the political thug Abbott and his cronies, closely followed by his political assassin and the morally bankrupt/devoid Malaise Turdball MP (Manic Personality), PM (Prime Miscreant), AKA the Waffling Wanker from Wentworth, and his cronies, including but not limited to  the master of stupid, the one and only (Thank God) Bananaby Juice MP (Maniacs Personified) and deputy PM (Prime MORON!)!   🙄

HansonRobertsThen, to add insult to injury, the aforementioned Waffling Wanker took us to a DD that resulted in the second coming of The Rambling Rabid Right Redhead from PHON, and her cohort of conspiracy crazes , like Malcolm (I need empirical evidence that he actually has some working brain cells) Roberts   O_o   , not to mention the head banging Xylophone band, and the human headline, who’s self declared first and only vote was to get himself elected… WTF???

So, here we are in this post-truth world, which is in reality more like a parallel  universe, where everything we valued as worthwhile and decent is in fact worthless and indecent; where truth is an expendable commodity, and the real political currency is propaganda and spin; where facts are irrelevant, and the success of a political party is determined not by the number of good policies passed in the name of “The national interest”, but rather the number of lies that can be sold to a majority of totally gullible, unsuspecting and apathetic citizenry; and where a blatantly despicable and corrupt ruling class is accepted as “The norm”!   😡

The sad reality is that after literally months of introspection, this political tragic has come to the undeniable conclusion that I have a palpable anger about the state of the body politic in this country and around the world more generally, that I’ve never felt before.

Now, I have felt anger towards politicians before, like during the Whitlam dismissal of 1975, when Fraser manipulated the system with the help of Joh Bjelke-Petersen and John Kerr, and then many times during the Howard years, but nothing like the anger that I’m feeling towards this current iteration of the rabid right!   👿

For quite some time now, there has been a pervading sense  of doom, gloom and ever despairing resignation over politics in this country, and apparently around the world, where those of us with some mental capacity have had to sit back and watch, as the lies, spin and propaganda of the rabid right have invaded the sensibilities of average punters, to the extent that they have seemingly lost the will and/or ability to think for themselves, and are more than happy to be led by the nose, lemming like, towards their own imminent demise.   😦

A classic example is the USA, where after years of trying to dig their way out of the hole that they found themselves in, as a direct result of the excesses of the banking and corporate sectors, they finally start to see some light at the end of the GFC tunnel, and immediately turn that light into train, by electing one Donald T (party) Rump, and giving carte blanche to the Republicans to reintroduce many of the policies and ideologies that dug the aforementioned GFC hole, in the first place!   😯

Likewise here, where we have a mendacious mob of miscreants, allegedly running the show, firstly under the appalling Abbott, who like Rump was elected on right wing myths, lies and propaganda, followed closely by the penultimate “Hollow Man” Malaise Turdball, who got in basically on the premise that he wasn’t Abbott, only to then go about disproving that misconception, by proving that in fact he’s actually worse than Abbott… Just in a better suit!    👿

But I digress   😛

Meanwhile back at my unprecedented anger:   😡

I watched the despicable Turdball in QT during the second last sitting week, waffling on about respect, followed shortly thereafter by a prolonged and sustained attack on the lack of  principles of Shorten and the Labor party, and accusing them of everything that he and his LNPee’ers are blatantly guilty of… WTF??? … Talk about Right wing projection!     And in an effort to restrain myself from throwing something large at my lovely 55″ smart TV, I let loose with a few choice expletives, and then hit the mute button and started reflecting on why I have so much anger?

And what came into sharp focus was that the the real problem is that it isn’t just anger that I’m experiencing, but a total and complete lack of respect for the offices of  government ministers, and the once high and revered office of PM, and that I actively despise them and have nothing but contempt for them!   😯

This phenomenon was instigated by Abbott, as LOTO, where he showed a complete lack of respect for the then PM Julia Gillard, and a total disregard for the rule of law, and the truth, heralding the mainstream acceptance of the “Post-truth” era in Australian politics!

Now, there is no doubt that Little Johnny (Lying Rodent) Howard was the instigator of “Post-truth” politics, in this country, but Abbott took it mainstream, and then the thoroughly despicable Turdball used his mainstream persona perception as an LNP moderate to further exploit the “Post-truth” phenomena to further his own personal ambitions, at the expense of the poor, disadvantaged and the wider Australian community.   👿

And now, he’s quoting “Post-truth”, as an accusation against the Labor party, which is in and of itself “Post-truth”!!!   😛

So, as the uninformed and disaffected, prompted by the lies and propaganda of the rabid right, who propagated “Post-truth”, turn to those very same “Post-truth’ers”, and conspiracy theorists, to deliver them from the ideologies that they, by their votes are re-endorsng; those of us with more than a mere handful of working brain cells, can only sit back and shake our heads in despair at the prevailing levels of stupid.   😦

And as we wind up the dissection of the dissemination of post-truth in politics, AussieTurnbull 1++ style, we have just been subjected to the most blatant example the aforementioned “Post-truth” in a Turdball masterclass commonly known as COAG, where our illustrious “Post-truth” PM declared that:    Despite the overwhelming evidence of our very own chief scientist in his “Finkel” report handed to the LNP this week, along with other corroborating opinions and evidence from climate change and economics experts, including from the CSIRO, stating that The LNPee’ers very own “Direct action” is a croc that will not deliver the targets that we have signed up to, in Paris, and that a market based pricing mechanism will not only be effective in making sure we achieve our emissions  targets, but would also put downward pressure on electricity prices, saving us, the consumers billions of $’s; he and his LNP backbenchers know better than all the aforementioned experts!!!   W…T…F???   😯

And so, as sheer bewilderment and  frustration turns to raging anger, and a deep and abiding sense of genuine fear for the future of mankind, combined with a complete loathing for the rabid right, who, as usual, totally ignore truth and facts, for the sake of bat shit crazy ideology and blatant self interest, our only options are to sit back, and watch, wonder and ponder;

The level of STUPID that brought us to this point

The slow motion train wreck that is the Muddick/IPA/LNP gov

And…  The vagaries of a “Post-truth” world???

Said the Abbott to the rank and file

Said the Abbott to the rank and file…abbotts-mouth

Well, as the Abbott has once again raised his ugly head, I thought it was time for another instalment of the “Said the Abbott…” poem series   😯

I was hoping to have it posted a few days ago, but like everything these days, it took a whole lot longer than it should   😡   But we got there in the end   🙂

Oh, and I know that “Rank and file” is a tad low rent for the LNP, but “Rank”, (and I do mean “RANK” in the most odious sense of the word) seems more than appropriate for the idiots that support this Mendacious Mob of Miscreants, especially in NSW!   😛

But it also applies across the nation   😀

So…

Said the Abbott to the “rank” and file…

 

Said the Abbott to the rank and file

You need to have your say

Cos the factions, that don’t quite exist

Are having too much, their own way

And as a future, er… umm… Past PM

My thoughts are all well known

And the rumours of my lies and spin

Are grossly overblown

😛

The moderates are all bleeding hearts

With pseudo left agendas

And NSW needs the rabid right

And our policy truth benders

Cos we can’t be wishy washy

And we need to tell it straight

But our cred has all but bolted

Through the moderates open gate

😯

And the PM, who I do support,

Is leading our great party

They say he’s smartest in the room

And he really is a… smarty???

His plan to run the country

Is a plan we all endorse

And even though he stabbed me in the back

I’ve got his back… Of course

😉

Said the rank and file to Abbott

Our numbers have diminished

And if we don’t reform real quick

In NSW we’re finished

Cos the ICAC has our measure

All our trusts accounts are blown

And our links to the Mafia and money laundering

Have now been clearly shown

😕

And the coalition federally

Has numbers that are tanking

And the waffler from Wentworth

Will deliver us a spanking

So we need a man of vision

And we need a man of guts

To renew the peoples confidence

In our party full of nuts

O_o

So we think we’ll stick with Turdball

And his sidekick Mikey Baird

Cos the terrorists and unionists

Have got us really scared

And our Liberal ideologies

Have taken quite a hit

And although the Turdball’s useless

As a PM, you were shit

😯

But we’ll keep our options open

Cos we’ve heard the backbench talking

And they say, with numbers going south

Our Mal’s a dead man walking

So we’ll stay the course with Turdball

Till a better choice appears

And he doesn’t wear your clown shoes

Or those silly monkey ears

😛

Said the Abbott to the Turdball

In Question Time you called me liar

And instead of showing leadership

You became an Abbott… Fryer

Which bloody Billy Shorten

Seemed to think was really neat

As he made you cock your Adler

And blow off both our feet

😡

And the whole thing looked quite silly

Though  a deal, I did not do

With that independent Lyingarse

Who’s dumped us in the poo

By side-tracking our agenda

On our A B C C con,

And relentless union bashing…

Our momentum has all gone

😡

Said the People to the LNP

You’ve really lost the plot

With your bullies in the Senate

And your credibility shot

And your ministers delusional

With the bullshit that they spout

And your lack of clear direction

Means you really should get out

😡

And pontificating waffle

Is the order of the day

As the really pressing issues

Are all glibly swept away

With your climate change denial

And backbenchers running riot

And all those bloody experts

That refuse to just keep quiet

😡

And we really need support

For the workers of our Nation

But all we get from the LNP

Is policy constipation

While first home buyers struggle

To get their first foot in the door

And your targets for austerity are

The old, the sick and poor

👿

You have lied, deceived and cheated

And exploited every rort

For the sake of wealthy donors

And just deny it, when you’re caught

And for Abbott and for Turdball

There is only one conclusion

When it comes to running Australia

They’ve been the REAL… Double Disillusion

😈

CC, is it worth the risk?

CC. is it worth the risk?images

After watching the nut-job Malcolm Roberts on QandA, last Monday night, I felt compelled to respond.   😯

Despite his efforts, and his obvious understanding of the  dilemma that faces the planet, Brian Cox, was never going to make any headway with the sadly delusional Malcolm Roberts, as despite his calls for “Empirical Evidence”, the reality is that Roberts is not interested in any evidence that contradicts what he believes to be true.   😯

Although, having said that, I’m not personally convinced that Roberts truly believes his own demented ramblings, as much as he protests that he does?   😛   (But then he did cite Pauline Hanson, as one of the most intelligent people he’s ever known   😯   So who knows???   ❓   )

And his incessant demands for “Empirical Evidence” are only matched by his effort to dismiss any and all evidence put before him

So, what is “Empirical Evidence”?

  1. Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analysed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method.
  2. “Empirical evidence” or “scientific evidence” is evidence which serves the purpose of either supporting or countering a scientific hypothesis or theory.

Now, I may not be as smart as Professor  Brian Cox   😯   , but by those definitions, it seems to me that   “Empirical Evidence” is exactly what we have… But I digress   😉

Roberts+The truth is that Roberts is an ego maniac, and deluded fool, who would never even consider the possibility that he could be wrong , as evidenced by his performance on QandA , and his responses to the evidence that he was confronted with.

But the question needs to be asked, of all those who believe the plethora of crap that  is pervading the internet in regards  to CC;

“What is the worst case  scenario if  either  side is wrong”?????

Well, if those that believe the science (as I do), are wrong, but do what they believe needs to be done, then the worst case scenario is that we will end up with;

  1. A planet that is cleaner and greener than it otherwise would be
  2. A new world wide economy based on renewables
  3. A vastly more efficient, and  environmentally friendly energy sector
  4. A healthier populous, due to a reduction in pollution, amongst other things, reducing at least some of the pressure on grossly under resourced health services
  5. And hopefully a more environmentally aware, and responsible populous, that will leave the planet in a better condition for future generations to work with, appreciate and enjoy.

And on the other hand, if the CC deniers are wrong, but convince the powers that be, to do nothing, other than maintain the status quo then the worst case scenario is that;

  1. There will be potentially billions of environmental refugees
  2. Natural disasters, increasing in both frequency and intensity
  3. Coastal inundation on a grand scale
  4. Untold millions, if not billions, of people dying from the aforementioned natural disasters (Floods, droughts, fires etc etc)
  5. A populous battling the environment, for their very survival, with a vision and grip on the future that is tenuous at best!

Now, at this point, I have to say that I, for one, would be more than happy for all the scientists, and “empirical evidence” to be wrong, and for the likes of Malcolm Roberts et al to be able to say “We told you so”!

Sadly however, as Brian Cox pointed out to Roberts (Which the aforementioned Roberts summarily dismissed   😯   )  the overwhelming consensus of the science community is of the contrary view!

So, IMHO, the most important question that we need to ask ourselves is not who’s right or wrong, (Although, I, like most would argue that the evidence is clear   😛   ) but;

“When it comes to doing nothing about CC… Is it worth the risk???”

And the answer is a resounding NO!

Living within our means… Mmmm?

Living within our means… Mmmm?

Don’t you just love it, when a multi millionaire, with his money stashed in an offshore tax haven, tells you to “Live within your means”?Man on loo+

The funny thing is that Malaise Turdball has been playing catch-up since stabbing Abbott in the back, using the reason that he was going to give us better fiscal management, which was “beyond” the aforementioned Abbott   😯

Now call me cynical   😯   , but not only would I say we haven’t seen “better” fiscal management, but I would venture to suggest we’re yet to see any fiscal management,   😛   unless, of course, he was talking about better fiscal management of his own Cayman Islands accounts   😉

But even worse than that, after nearly three years in gov, and seven months of the Turdball iteration of the Abbott/Muddick/IPA/LNP  regime, they have no discernible policies or direction (other than backwards   😡   ), and seem obsessed with only talking about, and blaming, the Labor opposition, for everything that has ever gone wrong   😯

The fact is, that at the last, Muddick sponsored, “Leaders” debate, when Turdball said that he knew what it was like worrying about whether the grandkids could have an ipad, or a tablet etc, for their education, I nearly threw up!   :mrgreen:

I mean really… How can an ex lawyer/banker, living in a $50 mill, harbour-side mansion, with his money stashed in the Caymans, have any idea what it’s like in the real world, that the vast major of us inhabit???

But I digress…  Oh… Actually, I didn’t   😯

But anyway, as Snott Morescum and Maths Conman, continue to push their bullshit and meaningless slogans, and Turdball continues to stand for nothing other than rabid right ideology, and his tenuous hold on power, at any cost (To us), the choice becomes clearer by the minute!   😛

And as there are more debates, and the pork barrels start overflowing, predominantly in marginal seats, and we get beaten around the head with “Jobson Growthe” and “It’s all Labor’s fault” and “Their big black hole is bigger than our big black hole”, I have a few things to say to Mr Malcontent Turdball:

  1. You are no friend of this country or its citizenry, cos if you were, you would not have your money stashed in the Caymans, you would not be protecting the top end of town with your opposition to the changes to negative gearing (which by any measure should be seen as a gross conflict of interest), and you would not have sold out your “alleged” principles, for the sake of a job at the top, which you have obviously coveted for no other reason than personal ambition and self aggrandisement!
  2. The more you hold the line about how good your stuffed up NBN is, the less people are taking you seriously, and the more people are just no longer listening, which is evidenced by your dramatic slide in the polls.
  3. Stop your waffling, prevarications and downright lies, and start actually answering questions!   I know it’s foreign concept to LNPee’ers, but if you started telling the truth, answering questions and taking some responsibility for your actions, instead of blaming everyone else, you probably still won’t save the election, but you might just limit the damage both you and Abbott have done to the LNP brand!
  4. They say that perceptions are critical, and the perception that you are “out of touch”,Turdball selfie+ is a difficult thing to deal with, but the reality that you are “out of touch”, is the more pressing problem, and only servers to reinforce and in fact confirm the perception; and no amount of riding trains and taking selfies will change that fact.
  5. The only legacy of your time in parliament, and the only thing that you can claim as your own, is the complete suff up of the NBN, courtesy of your ex-boss The Abbott, AKA the village idiot, who played you for the fool, and got you to destroy the most needed and relevant piece of 21st century infrastructure planned for our future jobs, growth and prosperity, the very things you claim as your main priorities.
  6. So you shouldn’t be surprised by your poll numbers dropping like the proverbial stone.  Neither should you be surprised by the fact that the people have stopped listening to your waffling and hyperbolic bullshit. And you certainly shouldn’t be surprised by the anger, frustration and resentment invoked, when someone like you, who has cut our services to the bone, while having absolutely no conception of the day to day struggles that most of us have to deal with, sends out the directive from your ivory tower that, we should all be ;

Living within our means… Mmmm?

Said the Turdball to the Bishop

Said the Turdball to the Bishop

AND THE CRIMINALLY INSANE!

AND THE CRIMINALLY INSANE!

Well, what a start to the election campaign?

The starters gun has yet to be fired, and the Turdball/Morescum fudgeit has already been labeled a fraud.

In QT this week, Morescum didn’t know what day it was, Turdball made a complete arse of himself, including in an inteview with David Speers, on Sky, and Maths Conman in a doorstop, took up the waffling mantle and ran with it, before the questions got too hard for him, and then …. He just ran   😯

And the entire LNP, in QT looked like the family pet had just died   😦

LNPee'ers+

And I’ve written my first poem of the election campaign   😀

Said the Turdball to the Bishop.

 

Said the Turdball to the Bishop

I am fabulous it’s true

But the rabid right wing legacy

Has dumped us in the poo

And the Abbott’s still there lingering

Like a rotten right wing stink

And working to discredit me

The nasty little fink

👿

He’s a man devoid of principles

And completely lacking class

Who won’t accept the simple fact

We dumped his sorry arse

And despite my popularity

Which no one can deny

He’s dragging this great party down

No matter what I try

😡

And with the election looming

And our numbers heading south

And the journos starting to question

Every utterance from my mouth

We’re in a spot of bother

And my plans have gone awry

As my PMship is sinking

And it makes me want to cry

😥

Cos we all know that I’m fabulous

The smartest one around

And I don’t need expert modelling

Cos my un-common sense is sound

And the people need to understand

I’m exactly what they need

To save them from the ALP

And foster personal greed

😛

And the wealthy must get richer

For the wealth to trickle down

That’s why us LNPee’ers

Wear the economics crown

And although some think that “trickle down”

Is just a right wing fable

There are always crumbs a’falling

From the wealthy’s banquet table

😯

And with jobs and growth our focus

Giving tax back to the rich

And tax breaks for the businesses

Helping scratch that fiscal itch

I don’t care what the lefty’s say

It’s not a war of class

And if the plebes don’t like it

They can kiss my wealthy arse

😛

Thought the Bishop of the Turdball

I am loyal through and through

But if your numbers don’t improve

We’ll dump a Turdball too

You’ve stolen Labors policies

Cos you’ve got none of your own

And the others that you’ve stuck with

Show you as an Abbott clone

🙄

Said the Bishop to the Turdball

I’m a loyal deputy

And we’ll clearly stick together

To defeat the ALP

but we’ll need much more than slogans

And the Muddick MSM

To placate the angry masses

Cos the Abbott lied to them

😦

So the budget must deliver

Or we’ll take a major hit

And all your political capital

Won’t be worth a pinch of shit

And we wrote off Billy Shorten

But the truth is plain to see

That we’ve underestimated

The bloody ALP

😡

And the journos have all started

Asking questions on our budget

That clearly show the voters

That all that we’ve done is fudge it

And the bloody Labor party

In their damned budget reply

Have taken all our premises

And blown them all sky high

😡

And the ten year fiscal outlook

Has sidetracked our fiscal plan

As our claim of Labor’s big black hole

Has been flushed straight down the pan

All because the ten year treasury costing

For smokes excise was low

They’re claiming that the dollar cost

Of tax cuts we should show

😛

Said the Turdball to the Bishop

All’s not lost, you still have me

And I’m doing everything I can

To save the LNP

So I’ll get out there and sell myself

With a smile they can’t resist

And I’ll just have one more glass of Grange

So they don’t think that I’m pissed

😀

Said the Turdball to the people

At this time your choice is clear

To endorse my plan for jobs and growth

And kick Bill Shorten’s rear

Or vote for lower house prices

And wasting cash on public health

And funding bloody Gonski

And more services by stealth

😯

Said the people to the Turdball

Of the lies and spin, we’re sick

And your fear and smear agenda shows

Just like Abbott, you’re a dick

You think you’re the smartest in the room

An ex lawyer and ex banker

And soon to be ex Ptime Minister

But you’ll always be a wanker!

😛

Turdball and Di Natale, are a real Double Disillusion!

Turdball and Di Natale, are a real Double Disillusion!Turnbull ++

Well, with all the expectations heaped on Turdball since the carefully engineered (albeit long overdue, and well deserved) demise of The Abbott, the disappointment, disgust and disillusionment  has been steadily  building, to the point where it’s almost palpable.   😯

So finally, despite the initial euphoria of the masses, over the aforementioned demise, and the relief of not having to watch The Abbott embarrass us on the world sage, whilst doing everything he could to make life as hard as possible, at home, for the sick, the elderly, the unemployed, the disabled and disadvantaged, people are starting to wake up to the fact that Turdball is no more than Abbott, in a designer suit!   😡

The frustration for truth seekers everywhere, is that we predicted both how dysfunctional and incompetent Abbott would prove to be, and that Turdball would be no better!   😛

And then, to add insult to injury (and what we were always led to believe to be from the left of politics)  we saw Milne hand over the reins of the greens to the big Dick Di Natale    😯   giving us Turdball the rabid right wing lefty, and Big Dick Di Natale the rabid left wing righty   O_o   :/   😕

Now the greens have been walking on shaky ground, since their “Green” credentials came under suspicion during the Rudd years, when they voted, on “ideological grounds”, with the LNP, against the original ETS, and are in large part responsible for the lack of environmental policy today, that has made us a world wide laughingstock and environmental pariah.   😡

There then followed a conga line of LNP bed hops, making the greens look more like political whores, than progressive ideologues, siding with the rabid right to block policies like the Malaysian Solution,  which ultimately resulted in the mess that is our current Border Farce and Asylum Seeker debacle, instead of compromising their ideals, for the greater good!   😦

In other words, rather than compromise for the sake of getting s0me possibly reasonable outcome, they stuck  to their “Principles” to achieve the worst possible outcome, and their own ideological nightmare   😯

They also voted with the LNP to remove the cap on gov borrowings, which has now resulted in a major blowout in the Abbott and Hockey declared “Debt and deficit disaster” of the Abbott opposition, to what we have now, which by comparison, can only be seen as a “Major debt and deficit catastrophe”

But of course, Dick Di Natale and his greens will take no responsibility whatsoever for any of the policy disasters that their complicity with the LNP has enabled, rather still claiming that they are diametrically opposed to the LNP… WTF???   :/

So here we are, as the last parliamentary sitting week before the budget session comes to an end, and both the greens and the LNP have stymied debate on their own policies,  for the sake of once again getting in to bed together for a quickie over senate voting “reform”, which Dick calls political pragmatism, while Malcontent screws not only the greens, but the voting public, for the sake of trying to hang on to power, and in the process gaining control of the senate so as to further reward wealthy LNP donors!   👿

So while the LNP, rather than negotiate, do what they always do  (Cheat, steal and manipulate) to try to get their own way, the greens in their political naivety and stupidity try to be relevant in the name of pragmatism, by crapping on their own “principles”, not to mention their supporter base.   😯

And while we don’t know for sure if Turdball will call a Double Dissolution, the one thing we do know for sure is that;

Turdball and Di Natale, are a real Double Disillusion!

What has Australia become?

What has Australia become?Beetroots+

WTF?

So, we got rid of Tony Abbott AKA The village Idiot, and now we have Surgical Truss, AKA the Human Sedative, heading for the public sector, leaving us with Turdball AKA The Waffling Wanker from Wentworth, and the Mr Beetroot Head AKA Bananaby Juice, to take the level of stupid to new heights  FFS   😯

Is it just me, or is it feeling like we’re stuck in a parallel  universe, where stupid is the norm, and the best we can hope for, as a nation, is gross national embarrassment   😳

And in that parallel universe, I suppose we should feel some level of sympathy for the Turdball, who has lost so many ministers, that it has moved well past unfortunate, to downright careless   😯   but in the real world, what it screams is… Turdball’s bad judgement!   😛

Turdball 2++

And when we look at the Abbott’s track record of bad “Captains Picks”, a record which many thought  would stand forever as a testament to Abbott’s stupidity, and would never be surpassed, we now have a situation where the Turdball is a real contender to actually wrest that somewhat dubious record from the Abbott’s dead, yet still grasping, claws!   🙄

Dunce 1The fact that Abbott is still on the backbench, agitating as only a true dickhead can, speaks volumes about the delusion that he works under.   😦    and the tenuous hold that he has on reality… Not to mention the even more tenuous hold that the Turdball has on power   😀

But I digress   😯

So as we watch the slow-mo  train wreck that the LNPee’er, alleged. government has become, with Morescum looking more economically  inept with every passing moment,  and Ashbygate threatening to disembowel the cabinet…Again…, we now have the prospect of the much promised/threatened DD, which is becoming more urgent by the day, for them as the Turdball’s poll numbers drop like the proverbial!

Tony Windsor

And with Tony Windsor snapping at Bananaby’s heels, not like an angry Pistol and Boo, but more like The Hound of The Baskervilles, waiting to rip out his political throat   😯   and NSW polling showing at least 10 LNP seats in real danger of changing hands, along with major factional preselection wars, and their complete lack of direction and policy, panic is the order of the day!   😀

We also have  the treasurer in witless protection, as he tries to come up with something vaguely resembling  a budget   😯   and Turdball trying to blackmail the cross benches into passing the ABCC legislation, while playing puerile little games about the timing of both the budget and a possible DD   🙄

So, as we move inexorably from democracy to neo-fascist stupid, and just as inexorably towards the election, that it looks increasingly like he’s scared to call, there are 2 burning questions that I for one am asking:

  1.   Have the masses woken up enough, to vote this dysfunctional rabble out?   ❓
  2.   The very fact that the first question needs to be asked, means that the most important and relevant question is… What has Australia become?   😦
