NEWS.COM PUBLISHES POLLS ON CLEVELAND'S GIGOLOS FOR A STORY ON TRUMP'S CONVENTION

I must have a different brand of TV from the news.com staff because I thought the GOP Convention was one of the best ever, and I have seen lots. But if Left media can’t find anything interesting to write about a concerned bloke who financed himself to a Presidential nomination without a mote of political experience then I guess it’s best to give the local hookers a call to see if there’s been a spike in business.



PROPHETS OF DOOM?

You might think when a bunch of oncologists gives you a very depressing prognosis, your remaining life turns to shit. In fact my life has been better ever since that depressing prognosis, except for not being able to play golf.


A GREEN COCKROACH IS HARD TO KILL

I woke at 5 this morning to make a cuppa and there on the kitchen floor was this cockroach on its back waving its legs at me. So before I poured my tea I gently poured the boiling water on this evil looking thing. It waved at me a few more times before it adopted a foetal position and remained motionless.



DO YOU THINK THEY WILL REMEMBER THAT RATFUCKER THING?

The Libs’ Left has merged with Labor’s Right and now there’s not a Tallyho between them. Make no mistake about it, Julie Bishop will push Cabinet for a Turnbull Government endorsement of Kevin Rudd for UN Secretary General. She needs to be seen to be behind the push.


DOES SOMETHING SMELL FISHY ABOUT NICE AND ISTANBUL TO YOU?

... my bullshit detector is off its scale, and I'm no conspiracy theorist

NICE: What we have been told is an amateur video, taken from a flat opposite, shows clearly a 20 tonne truck parked by the side of the Esplanade. It is then shown moving off and gathering speed before it begins a two kilometre killing spree. Okay, now I start thinking. Why would a Bastille reveller watching fireworks and a million people celebrating Independence Day from his/her balcony, be filming an innocuous looking truck for quite some time while it was parked and stationary, before carefully filming the imminent atrocity?



ONLY A DEMENTED FOOL BELIEVES ISLAM IS NOT THE PROBLEM

... and Obama still cannot say the word Islam as the toll nears 100

What more does the Left need to finally get it through their thick skulls that Islam is the driving force behind Islamic terrorism? I mean it’s not a Presbyterian thing is it? Authorities are prevented from issuing statistics on Muslim populations in the wake of increasing European terrorism, for fear of being accused of racial profiling.


CHINA WOULD NOT HAVE DARED IF KENNEDY WAS STILL PRESIDENT

... but Obama is an international soft touch

When the Soviet Union’s Khruschev attempted to place missiles in the Caribbean, President Kennedy, a Democrat, picked up the phone to Moscow and politely explained if the Soviet ships carrying ICBMs did not turn around and go home the USSR could expect a phalanx of US troops on Soviet soil and a pile of nuclear weapons waiting to be dropped from an overhead flock of B52s.... Khruschev quietly turned around and went home.


ABC AN ALP SHELTERED WORKSHOP

... that pays above award wages

It was time to reach for my depleted bottle of Mylanta again last night in an attempt to endure another Monday night of ABC television... the bottle is now empty, and I’m still angry. There must be an answer to this outrageous government-financed monolith that disregards with haughty contempt the majority of the taxpaying public.



BAIRD DOES A GILLARD WITH THE DISHLICKERS


WAKING UP TO LABOR’S DIRTY TRICKS

... this one is a ripper and it cost the Libs seats

Forget the Medibank lie that was designed by failed Treasurer Wayne Swan out of Queensland. This one was designed by the Green/union supported GetUp and it awoke tens of thousands of householders from a deep sleep in marginal seats across Australia.


"HE'S GOT A GUN, A GUN!"

... he should have added "in his pocket"

The most bone-chilling words a policeman can hear is another policeman yelling, “He’s got a gun!” But that’s exactly what this policeman heard before he pumped at least three bullets into Alton Sterling’s chest at point blank range. Sterling, an African American, died on the spot.This, and another killing by cop, led to the unjustified deaths of five innocent policemen in Dallas, Texas.
