LABOR TIED TO A TOXIC GILLARD

The true believers are preparing to take their punishment on the chin. All are aware that Gillard is about to lead them into oblivion, and there’s not a damned thing they can do about it.


ONE MAN'S BOAT TRIP TO OZ

Esmail is a 22yo Iranian man. His family of four is considered middle class. His father, who works as an engineer for an Iranian oil company, decided to move his family to Australia but first Esmail had to get there using the services of an Indonesian people smuggler. This is how Esmail did it.



LYING STRAIGHT IN A FAIRFAX BED

I often ask myself why I sit in front of a damned computer. Why have I started drawing again? Why aren’t I playing golf? Crumbs, I’m in my seventies and I don’t need this crap! I sacrificed a decent golf handicap for what? Then I pick up a Fairfax paper and suddenly realise for what... and why I’m no longer a single marker.


SOMEONE'S ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

As illegal immigration becomes the major election issue, a culture of indifference by authorities as to who enters our borders has slowly emerged. Here’s just one reason why... explained by one of many exasperated AFP whistle-blowers.



"ABBOTT CAN'T TURN BACK THE BOATS"... like hell he can't

The lack of respect shown for Australia's sovereignty by the Indonesians is nothing short of breathtaking. Tough talk by Islamic apes (yes, I meant to say that) in diplomatic circles may have Gillard bluffed but no decent Australian PM would ever allow a foreign country to dictate our immigration policy.



WHY VOTERS WANT GILLARD'S BLOOD

Julia Gillard’s tenure at the helm started with the knifing of a colleague, backed by union thugs, and will end with an NDIS hoax and a Gonski scheme that even Gonski says her implementation of is flawed... all in between is a thoroughly expensive mess.


DAVID MARR: A DANGEROUSLY DELUSIONAL DOLT

A panel discussion on Sky this week concerned E bridging visas and unprocessed Islamists. I’m used to some pretty stupid comments coming from Sky panellists but this one was a doosie.



ABBOTT STUMBLES... and he's not even in Office yet!

Apparently Gillard doesn’t have the sole franchise on stupidity because it took social media to convince Abbott to renege on a deal with Gillard to pass an ill-conceived $1 a vote Bill.


TONY'S NOSE IN THE SAME TROUGH... but is he thinking ahead?

It will now cost you one extra dollar to vote for a major party in a Federal election. You won’t have to pay at the booth but as a taxpayer you will certainly have to pay, and this iniquitous bastardry has the support of Abbott. Why? In this election it gives Gillard a distinct advantage!


IT'S NOT ONLY WATERHOUSE WHO NEEDS YOU

Tom Waterhouse ads are intensely annoying and to pay his way on to a TV football panel simply degrades the commentary. Julia’s ads are no less of an intrusion.


INDIGENOUS ROUND WAS A BLACK DAY

If you, like all others, laud the actions of Adam Goodes, then don’t read on. I barrack for the Swans so I was glued to the set when Goodes interacted with someone in the crowd. “Ouch”, I thought, “don’t do that Adam, you’ll be in big trouble!”
