Some Tweet Poetry

I’ve been writing a few little fit-in-a-tweet poems, and thought I’d share them with the better half of my social media world (yes, you, reading this right now). Because I am such a tech guru (!), I’m ’embedding’ them here (WOW, I know, right?).  Well, I’ll try anyway.  If it doesn’t work as planned, I’ll hastily edit to replace with screenshots…  Apologies in advance if I fuck it up and you’re one of the ripped-off early readers who sees a half-arsed shemozzle of a post. [EDIT: As predicted, I fucked it up, so I tried 5,000 different things, and now it finally … Continue reading Some Tweet Poetry

Wave Turbine Syndrome Scares Everyone

Opposition to new wave power technology planned for deployment on Australia’s south coast has raised its furrowed brow, after the announcement that the “scary machine” had been constructed and would be installed in coming months. A grassroots group known as ‘SeaFloor Guardians’ was hastily registered for tax evasion purposes on Monday, funded by generous donations from a consortium of coal companies.  Group spokesperson, Dr. Lara Worry, said that there needed to be at least 50 years of research into the health impacts of wave energy before they could support the project.  “We just don’t know what these machines will do.  My … Continue reading Wave Turbine Syndrome Scares Everyone

Don’t Mention The B-1

Pentagon says B-1 On It’s Way To Australia. Then tiny tony says ‘No’, Then Pentagon says ‘Oops’. Link to news: Tony Abbott confirms US has no plans to send B-1 bombers to Australia, says defence official ‘misspoke’ As part of US ‘defense’ actions, a lot of Marines and their assorted hangers-on are soon to be based in Darwin. A statement issued overnight by the Assistant US Defense Secretary clearly stated, “We will be placing additional air force assets in Australia as well as B-1 bombers and surveillance aircraft”. Some people, mostly from China, and a good handful from Australia as well, got … Continue reading Don’t Mention The B-1

Welcome To City

The Prime Moron of Australia, tony abbott, has rolled out the welcome mat for indigenous Australians to relocate to major cities, by reminding them that they live in the desert and that cities are way better and you can get stuff in cities that you can’t get in the desert. In a political master-stroke, abbott has saved the nation (and the good state of Western Australia) many millions of dollars and enticed entire remote indigenous communities to relocate to the city, simply by making them aware that governments cannot “endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind … Continue reading Welcome To City

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

Some Call It Terror – #SydneySiege

One could easily say that any act that induces a feeling of terror in its victim/s might rightly be called ‘terrorism’.  In which case, the most terrible aspect of the #SydneySiege would be that moment of terror when the police stormed the Lindt Chocolate Café in Martin Place, accompanied by the blinding percussive terror of dozens of flash grenades and 27 rifle shots.  Prior to that, the event was simply a hostage situation – albeit one with an imposed flavour of ‘Islamic extremism’. There are some concerning elements of this siege situation, which took place in the centre of Australia’s largest … Continue reading Some Call It Terror – #SydneySiege

“Trickle down” environment policy… WTF?

Originally posted on Truth Seekers Musings:
“Trickle down” environment policy… WTF? Evolving from DICKHEAD TO DICTATOR, in record time! What’s with the rabid right, and their obsession with the idea of “Trickle down” policies? During the start of the GFC when Rudd announced his stimulus package, the LNP were up in arms about handing out money to the poor and disadvantaged, along with the HIP (Home Insulation Program), and the BER (Building Education Revolution), which despite all the rhetoric from the rabid right, were hugely successful programs that did exactly what was required at the time, to keep Australia’s economy… Continue reading “Trickle down” environment policy… WTF?
