      We seem to read so much LNP fantasy here in the comments columns, regarding ‘the mess we inherited from Labor”, “Labor will sink Qld under mountains of debt”, Labor lost Qls the AAA rating… And bugger me ! If I read about “Labor’s debt and deficit” one more time, I will get out the canoe join the rest of the NORMAL folk and point it towards NZ !

      I see the Greens. Katter, PUPs, independents, and other minor partys are doing a ‘deal’ to swap/pool preferences … Which MAY hurt LNP more than the ALP. Think it may be best to just VOTE ALP 1 and not number them all…
      Wouldn’t it be nice to know EXACTLY where our bloody votes are going to end up… Pre polling starts here in the morning, and we wouldn’t have a clue! This is a farce.. IMHO

      Truthy, I heard the idiot boy say that he was the best friend of Medicare at that road stop this morning also.

      What the Journo`s missed however was when he said, “Medicare is great and I want to keep it, and that bulk-billing will be retained for the ” vulnerable” in our community”
      Surely one of the Journq`s should have immediately asked him “Does that mean bulk-billing as we know it will no longer be your policy as it will only apply to the “vulnerable”?
      Unfortunately no one did.
      Why am I not surprised?

    Good morning to all my friends.
    Truthy, I’m feeling somewhat remote from the intensity of your state election and perhaps that’s not entirely a bad thing.
    I just wanted to extend the hope that TSM’s Queensland residents have been spared the worst of last night’s storm and that you are all safe and well.
    I nearly broke my promise and resumed posting on IA. Techinbris has been in a shit fight with Jaycee over the proper use of the verb, “to man”, as in man the pumps, man the electoral booth, man the tiller etc etc. Jaycee insists that any use of the word man, whenever used in the context of an adult male human, should be gender neutral. DD backed her version.

      Techy’s a trooper, but arguing with Jaycee is a bit of a lost cause 😦

      So is she saying that, for instance, the Abbott government should “Person the pumps” and then “Person the lifeboats” as their LNP ship slowly sinks 😉

      All I can say to that is “Person the barricades” we’re being assaulted by PC stupidity 🙂

        It was actually DD that “fired first”. TechinBris had responded to a post by Wixxy that raised the issue of what is the appropriate terminology to be applied to a person born in NSW.
        Techy nominated “New South Welshman” and DD ankle tapped him over the fact that that term was “gender specific”. They had a few exchanges then Jaycee jumped in with her defence of gender non-specificity.
        She didn’t address the question of the pumps, the lifeboats, the barricades or the concession stalls at the Sunday market.

          Mate, someone like DD should know that “New South Welshperson” is somewhat cumbersome, and “New South Welshie” is a bit too unspecific, and “New South Welshthings” is a tad insulting, so what’s his option? “New South Welshers”? ❓ 😉 that would work for the NSW LNP 😀 , but the rest might take umbrage 😯

              The New South Welshman became a New South Welshperson and lives with all the New South Welshpeople.
              The spellchecker underlines Welshperson and Welshpeople but not Welshman so the argument was a moot point because “other” terminology has not caught up with the dictionary form as dictionaries etc update their words/meanings and phrases.
              The unbearable lightness of being a New South Welshman
              The term “New South Welshman”and “New South Welshmen” are still in use according to Google search and are defined as “slang” “colloquialism” and definition.
              So Techin is correct in my book and he is one of those who occasionally use TSM and a target of imbeciles.

          The thing I hated most was that idiotic start screen designed for touch sensitive monitors, but if you put the cursor to the top left hand corner a small image of a W7 type screen appears and you can go there and add your icons, folders etc and carry on like a normal human being.
          It will default to the stupid screen for a few start ups and then get the idea if you keep going to the good one.
          W8.1 is a bit more user friendly, but like all MS stuff, they keep making it harder to use for no good reason other than to show off their programming skills. You only need to remember how easy Word 2000 was to use and then use, say, Word 20007 to see all the crap you have to wade through instead of having the choice of it sitting at the top of the screen or not.

      They were at least far more square when Brown ran the ship-now they`re going to go the way of the Democrats.
      I`ve been asked ‘what should the Greens just be a junior partner of Labor”
      ha,that`s if
      Mate they all harbour knives in one hand and biscuits in the other.
      They can stick their biscuits and their knive where the Sun don`t shine for mine.
      I can`t find anything for your area Judes 🙂 soz
      I don`t know your candidates or electorate at all except for it`s name but i did see that LNP slime has a 20%+ margin.
      My electorate is “I think” the largest on Earth and the Nats win because of Kalgoorlie/Boulder and Kambalda
      Unemployment has hit there hard now and the grumbles are getting loud
      Tafe`s are closing and there`s no jobs to go to anyway

    Morning Truth Seekers 🙂 and as we move inexorably closer to polling day in our blue ribbon LNP seat, we’ve certainly seen more action in this state election than in previous ones with even the obnoxious LNP looking, for once, like they’re not taking us quite so much for granted 😯

    Although I have to say that our local member, the Mendacious Mark McArdle, has been a no show so far, which will make no difference to his support from the ill informed and rusted on self funded retirees, who will still vote against their own and the states best interest 😦

    But the very fact that they seem to be trying this time, may mean that there’s movement at the station that has them worried 😉 We live in hope 🙂

    That aside, it may be darts today 😀 but I won’t know for sure until I wake my mate up, with a phone call, around 8:30 😉 the lazy bastard 😯 😉 😀

    Cheers 🙂

    Good morning Truthy 🙂 and I hope your mate decides,yes it`s darts day 😆
    Mate I couldn`t have thrown a dart for about 6 months now because of my shoulder injury,but it`s now on the mend [can take up to a year docs said]
    My doctor said when I came into his practise “I didn`t know you still played football,”thinking I played Aussie Rulles” because he said it was a typical injury from Rules players when they come down from a high mark attempt.
    I told him I didn`t know any Marks let alone one that`s high {boom boom] yes he called me a dork as well.

    You know of the IPA well their boss in the US is ALEC and whatever idea the IPA comes up with ALEC has already done,either in State or Federal form.>their latest condensed>>>
    —————————————————————————————————————————
    In the five years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s disastrous Citizens United decision opened the floodgates to unlimited secret money in elections, The federal government is more deadlocked than ever, and more representative of corporate special interests than average Americans.

    Now, state governments are dominated and led by right-wing members of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), who are blocking action on measures like paid sick days and the minimum wage.

    Biggie
    I had another reflection on my view of the Greens and some of its rabid supporters.
    My thoughts recently crystallised when DJ, who has canned shit out of the ALP for the past 12 months or more has now complained that the ALP would be a traitor to the voters of Queensland if they didn’t take the chance to use the Greens to form an anti – Conservative coalition.
    Now, I find that very curious because DJ has also recently said that the Green’s will probably not win any seats.
    So, if the Greens win a couple of seats (which DJ doesn’t think they will), and if Labor are one or two seats short of a working majority, then the Greens should be given the chance to experience government in a partnership with a party they detest.
    I suggested to DJ some months ago that he retreat to his fantasies, at least I got that part right.

    Hey Frank Ston, like you, I was tempted to go back on IA and offer my support to Simon, Joe and Ron, but won`t break my promise either.
    Just a thought, until recently I believe there was not a great deal of animosity between the Greens and the ALP, but since the arrival on the scene at the I.A site of DJ and his ilk, a great wedge has developed between some commenters on that site between supporters of each party, which leads me to repeat an earlier comment of mine,which is that the Trolls are at work to simply wedge both groups while they sit back laughing at the damage they are causing.
    I`ve been around long enough in politics to pick a genuine supporter of political parties, and I can safely say that people who state they support the ALP (and who sometimes offer genuine criticism of it) on the I.A. site are fair dinkum. I can`t say the same for some of the others on that site, I`m afraid.
    Cheers.

    Early odds have the LNP at anywhere between $1.20 (Ladbrokes) and $1.29 (Luxbet) to win the election. ALP odds vary between $3.45 (Luxbet) and $4 (Ladbrokes).

        I hope to have my new poem up later today or tomorrow, in the run up to the state election, but this last couple of weeks has been very distracting one way and another, so here’s hoping? ❓

        Did you see DD, on the ABC news this morning, trying to interview an LNP MP about his involvement in the proposed, gold coast cable car project 😯 A clear conflict of interest I would have thought, but instead of answering any questions he did a little jig and waved DD away in a performance somewhat reminiscent of Abbott’s “Shit happens” debacle 😀
