Paris: You Don’t Want to Read This

Originally posted on Counter Information:
November 15, 2015 “Information Clearing House” –  You don’t want to read this, and I take no pleasure in writing it, and no one really wants to hear it right now. But I believe it needs to be said. I join the world in grieving for the dead in Paris. I have grieved for the dead from 9/11 forward — the Australians who died in terror attacks on Bali in 2002, Londoners who died in terror attacks in 2005, the French citizens who died in the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January of this year, the… Continue reading Paris: You Don’t Want to Read This

Better Late? (My Little Syria Rant)

Recent days have seen a widespread outpouring of concern for refugees fleeing the broken country that was once Syria.  I suppose this is positive, in some way, that now there is a focus on the plight of nearly 12 million displaced individuals.  There is now broader awareness of the fact that over 220,000 people have died in the conflict, and that almost one and a half million people have been injured [See: http://syriasurvey.aa.com.tr/%5D. And, of course, we are now preparing to aim more bombers in the general direction of the Daesh ‘death cult’ that has infiltrated Syria from Iraq.  There’s … Continue reading Better Late?

Tony and The Greyhounds Save Australia

In yet another leak from the ranks of the ailing government, it was revealed that a weekend brain-storming session was convened in the Prime Moron’s Office (PMO), and that a unanimous decision was made to use asylum seekers from offshore detention centres as live bait to draw terrorists from their suburban spider-holes. In light of recent revelations about the continued use of live baiting for the ‘blooding’ of racing dogs all around Australia, an idea was formed in the bright minds running the PMO. Convening a secret meeting on Sunday morning, the PMO facilitated a brain-storming session to capitalise on the … Continue reading Tony and The Greyhounds Save Australia

We Will Tsunami You

Australia is to develop a fleet of tsunami generators to wreak revenge on foreign powers who ignore this great nation’s pleas for clemency, PM abbott said on Sunday. He reminded Indonesia that Australia was “exceedingly generous and, aah, helpful” in the aftermath of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami.  He further stated that if planned executions went ahead, Australia would “certainly find ways to make our displeasure felt.”*  When questioned on what those ways might be, abbott responded, with a sparkle in his eye, “those little buggers better know how to swim.  If they haven’t learnt from, aah, observing my stroke, well, … Continue reading We Will Tsunami You

Look Over There! No, Not There; Over There!!

Distraction. The only thing our fantastical and terrible Federal government is good at. Distraction. Here’s a little 3-dot-point list of (some of) the failures of this government, and the actions employed (by design or by pure luck) to distract from them. 1. Promises made in campaign-mode – Broken (too many to put a number on). A plane disappears (MH370).  “Look over there!  Look, I will find that plane.  Look, the world has made me the king of plane-finding.“ Operational result: FAIL Distraction result: 100% 2. A Federal budget so horrible, that it remains un-passed even as we draw closer to … Continue reading Look Over There! No, Not There; Over There!!

Terror Team Australia

Well, now it’s official – Australia is ‘likely’ to be attacked by terrorists, and our ‘alert level’ has been raised to ‘high’. So, don’t hang around reading this!  Run!  Run for your lives – the radicalised fundamentalist Muslimists are coming! Since the inception of Team Australia (a propaganda masterstroke by which Goebbels would be utterly underwhelmed), we have been warned that otherwise-sane Australian citizens would be lured to the Middle East to become highly-trained killers and then return home to KILL US ALL. We then discovered there was a hotbed of terror-planning on the Gold Coast, with men-of-Middle-Eastern-appearance plotting our demise in … Continue reading Terror Team Australia

Foxes In The Henhouse

ADDENDUM: I posted this back in February, and it is still valid, I think.  Since then, the foxes have been salivating at their seemingly endless menu of victims, and have eaten quite a few more helpless souls.  And the Number 1 fox, doing his utmost to divert attention from his and his government’s cruelty and ineptitude, has (in no particular order): declared war on Russia found and then lost a missing plane failed to retrieve ‘bodies, and parts of bodies’ (and save them from the ‘ravages of heat, and of animals’) that were disgorged from another plane in Ukraine and also declared … Continue reading Foxes In The Henhouse

I Fucking Hate You, Australia

* – Originally posted back in March of 2014.  I’m re-posting because I’m angry again, and I have added some update. Look what you’ve gone and done.  Like a spoilt child having a tantrum in the confectionery aisle… I’m a bit very angry at present.  But I should be clear here – I don’t hate ‘Australia’, but I do (even though I know that hate is usually unwarranted and will probably one day make me sick and then kill me) hate the blind, ignorant, selfish, hypocritical cretins who aspire to be better than everyone else, and think they’re somehow special, … Continue reading I Fucking Hate You, Australia
