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

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

Killer Video

Imagine, if you will, being an asylum seeker. Imagine you have made a series of decisions based on your desire to survive. Imagine that, eventually, after months in camps and on a leaky boat, you have arrived at a secured facility on an island. Imagine what you would think after being forced to watch the above video. People with no compassion laugh at the suicides, the self-immolations, and the rapes and murders. They have not spared one minute to imagine the horror that would descend upon a human person as the video of the expressionless white face played out, telling … Continue reading Killer Video

Australia Stunned into inaction

I’ve been so dumbfounded by what’s transpiring in our country at the moment it’s difficult to find the words but after listening to PJK on TV a couple of nights ago just had to have a rave This budget is on my mind and I’m disgusted by what our country has allowed to happen. We no longer live in a democratic country we have a small amount of people with huge amounts of inherited wealth that has become capitol growing faster than the countries economy. This fast growing capitol allows this small percentile group to… Continue reading Australia Stunned into inaction

Seeking Sanity

The entire ‘argument’ in Australia surrounding asylum seekers and refugees is Shit.  And it’s Gotta Stop.  This should be short.  Because it is easy.  But we’ll see how we go… We don’t really have a lot to complain about here in Australia.  Stupid is about our biggest problem. Despite the fact that this ‘great nation’ was founded on resettled convicts, displaced indigenous peoples, and staying tied to the apron strings of colonial Great Britain, we have always been a nation wary of outsiders (maybe because we scared white folk know what we did and continue to do to the indigenous … Continue reading Seeking Sanity
