AFL BLAMES THE CROWD!

... WTF?

Now I’ve heard everything! The AFL and every sports commentator in the country is admonishing the crowds for booing Adam Goodes. Well, now the crowds can add Lewis Jetta to their list of people worthy of booing because, although the AFL might be able to eject a 13-year-old girl from the MCG, it can’t eject 50,000 fans who paid to have their say.


"I S’POSE A TONGUIE IS OUT OF THE QUESTION?"

So gay people want equality eh? Well I reckon it’s the poor straight bastards like me that cop the rough end of the pineapple. If ever equality gets dished out in equal portions, we should be first in line.


UNHAPPY CLAPS FOR A SHAMEFUL SCAM

I had visitors yesterday but still kept an eye on the ALP Conference and in particular Bill Shorten’s new “road to Damascus” boat policy... but there was something wrong! Something didn’t fit.


NORTHERN TERRITORY A STATE?

... what you bin sniffin’ bro?

Organising a quorum from the Legislative Assembly will be the hardest part because at any one time most of them are off up the Cobourg Peninsula on corroboree, pissed as parrots and punching each other’s lights out arguing over who’s got the biggest rainbow serpent.


TURNING BACK THE ALP, ONLY WHERE IT’S SAFE TO DO SO

...but it’s not safe for Bill to do so!

It’s a Whitlam style “crash-or-crash-through” gamble on a high risk boat policy in an attempt to succour the electorate’s middle ground. Shorten is attempting to out Abbott Abbott with a ridiculous 50% RET, much like his nonsense 5% company tax cut proposal that one-upped Abbott’s 1.5%. What a joke this bloke Shorten is!



STEPHEN HAWKING’S TIME MACHINE

Over many years I have listened with intense interest to Stephen Hawking’s string theorems and black hole time-travel fantasies, believing he must know more about the cosmos than anyone else. Now that he’s declared he is off with some rich Ruskie bloke to find intelligent life in galaxies and hitherto unknown solar systems, I’m convinced he’s been playing with his um, gums all along.


FAAARK! STOPPING THE BOATS WAS EASY COMPARED TO STOPPING THIS WELFARE?

Why is it that polls curiously show a justifiable distrust of Bill Shorten yet show a constant affection for Labor? Well, the electorate has reached an entitlement tipping point where it simply cannot afford NOT to vote Labor.


OAKES IS BLIND TO BRONWYN'S SPRING SESSION

Laurie Oakes is adamant that the Speaker will stay. “Tony Abbott is the love child of John Howard and Bronwyn Bishop”, he claims, and he could be right about that. But he is wrong about her staying on as Speaker of the House. In all probability Ms Bishop will need to fall on her own sword before Parliament returns for the Spring Session. This is not going away.


PAEDO RING NO P.I.E. IN THE SKY

...and 60 Mins story no exclusive

[The following is a report from pickeringpost.com 15 months ago.] An alarming report in the Mail On-line has accused Lord Justice George Fulford, (pictured) adviser to the Queen, of being a key backer of the outrageous “Paedophile Information Exchange” group known as PIE.


IS ABBOTT ABOUT TO BURN BRONNY?

...Tony Burke thinks so

The man leading the push to kill Bronwyn Bishop, Manager of Opposition Business in the House, Tony Burke, is on a winner. Or so he believes. There are few excuses for Bishop’s lapse in common sense and unjustified feelings of entitlement as Speaker of the House, but Tony Burke’s position is no less odious because the vast majority of Australians see radical Islam as a threat... and Tony Burke can’t afford to.



DON'T YOU TALK TO ME ABOUT EXPENSES TONY!

Over five grand for a chopper from Melbourne to Geelong? Bloody hell! For a 15 minute leisurely flight up the M1? It seems the chopper hire company also needs to answer a few questions. That’s $21,000 an hour fly time, so what were the “extras”?


SHOULD BARNABY BUTTON UP?



SEEMS AT LEAST WE GOT A STAY OF EXECUTION

Indonesia does not discriminate... Labor or the Coalition are still hated as Australian rats who should show respect, or at least a tolerance, for Joko Widodo’s corrupt Administration and its slaughterers’ right to kill cattle according to the cruel practice of halal.


THE LOONY LEFT STILL LINGERS

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.


GILLARD/BROWN $10 bil DEAL GAVE US THE WINDMILLS

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 BRAIN’S LEFT HEMISPHERE IS LABOR’S SECRET PLACE

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.
