The canny political Left uses focus group sanctioned, friendly phrases like this: “The most vulnerable people ...”, which appeals to everyone’s ‘Good Samaritan’ side. “Climate change is ...”, now who could possibly argue with the climate changing? And of course, “Making little heart signs with fairy fingers while pleading for marriage equality” is designed to appeal to everyone’s sense of justice.
“Climate” is sometimes defined as the thirty year “average” of weather. Climate is what we expect, on average – weather is what we actually get.
There were some things Abbott wasn’t prepared to do to gain Government in 2010... one was to “sell my arse” to Bob Brown, the other was to plaster the beautiful Aussie landscape with wind turbines. Julia Gillard was willing to do both, and anything else that secured her the keys to The Lodge.
The only defence of Bill Shorten the Left can offer is that “the Libs did it too”. Well, the Libs are guilty of many things but certainly not of aspiring to care for the welfare of workers through unions only to be bought off by employers.
A large "donation" to Bill Shorten's 2007 campaign that was only declared over the weekend sent the Left media racing to their laptops to Google Tony Abbott's comparative sins. Voila! He also had been late in declaring "donations".
Did Bill Shorten swap workers’ benefits for union fees? Yes he did. Did he hide Gillard and Wilson’s theft from his AWU members? Yes he did. Did he try to hide the HSU fraud? Yes he did. Did he have Bob Kernohan bashed? Yes he did. Did he rape a drunk 16 year-old girl? Yes he did. Did he knife two sitting Labor Prime Ministers? Yes he did. Did he... oh, I could go on all day, because this bloke has a rap sheet longer than both the Kray brothers combined.
"We do not understand why she feels it's necessary to misrepresent her ethnicity", said her parents. When American Rachel Dolezal identified as being black, despite the fact that she was actually white, the world’s media pounced on her and tore her integrity to pieces.
Evidence has been unearthed showing that in late 2011 Julia Gillard used borrowed taxpayer funds of between $10 and $25 million to give to the infamous Clinton Foundation. The money was funnelled through the tax-free charity AusAID which was suspiciously brought under the auspices of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Words matter, they matter a lot. Words define our thoughts and our thoughts drive our actions. By the manipulation of language it is possible to effect changes without people even realising what has happened.
I don't know about you but I'm heartily sick of having this gay marriage thing brought to the fore every time something unpalatable or unanswerable happens in Parliament. Every time Shorton Brains gets asked a curly one like, “Were you corrupt?" he immediately jumps on to the gay marriage wagon. It's gone on for months. Years. Maybe decades.
I’m getting all mixed up with this gay thing. Our teacher Ms Green is very excited over marriage quality and has painted her face in a rainbow and we all have to do an essay on why gay is great but I don’t even know how to tell who is gay.
Make no mistake, Abbott is champing on the bit and wants a fair dinkum war on ISIS but he needs Obama to move first! Unfortunately Obama has no intention of moving anywhere and his 61 member coalition of the unwilling is running the other way faster than the Iraqis.
Uncle Kevin’s only claim to fame is that he may have lost fewer seats than Gillard would have in the 2013 election. It was still a record-breaking landslide loss and everything else involving Kev was calibrated in varying degrees of a disaster.
