WINDSOR WANTS NEW ENGLAND BACK?...Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!!!!!


...and he is not choking

Last year I quoted Ted Cruz as a short priced favourite to win the US Presidential nomination and suggested you could “write your own ticket” about Trump. The Republican machinery would never allow a cowboy like Trump to disrupt what has become a comfortably corrupt organisation, or so I thought. But Trump is overwhelming the lobbyists and protected interests like no-one thought possible and now he cannot be ignored.



... but now it's time to let him go

Cardinal Pell is not a child molester. He is simply a sad character who has lacked female affection and his sex life has been confined to masturbation. His sin is that he knew of paedophilia within his church and sought to protect the church rather than the children.


... and suffers unfriendly fire from the rear

Forecasts that he would self-destruct have proven wrong and Donald Trump has broken the mould for nominee elections forever. No-one has ever seen anything like this before. In between promising to deport 11 million illegal entrants and having an unpresidential punch up with the Pope his successful loony shenanigans have forced his opponents to adopt similar unfamiliar tactics.

NEWS IN A TIME WARP the way the cartoon is apropos of nothing

I was on a gurney being wheeled into a forbidding theatre. I stretched to see a wall clock that showed 3.20. “This will help you relax”, said an anaesthetist shoving some pink stuff on my tongue. I figured this would be a good time to review my atheist status. Hmmm, not likely.

The Write Stuff

Most people cannot spell… they think they can but they cannot. So a whole irrecoverable generation is basically unable to pass on a valuable treasure-house of true word meanings… thanks to that delinquent Whitlam who was besotted with phonetics.

Me, Bubba and Banjo

One day we were given homework by the English teacher, Bubba Powell. He was the spitting image of Kevin Rudd with his ruddy baby face, insipid little quivering mouth and white hair. He was dentally challenged and avoided baring his grey, uneven teeth.


The power of indoctrination prior to the age of reason is finite, everlasting and transcends all intellectual reason. Most of all it is underestimated. If a parent tells a young child that Father Xmas exists, the child will believe it is so.

Justice Ain't Justice

Our penal systems vary and are based on dogma. Religious dogma. The Islamic woman who is raped, and cannot produce witnesses to testify that she was, will be stoned to death. The European woman who is raped and can point a finger at her “violator” will have him gaoled… in a “correctional centre”.


The theory of evolution is as simple and as logical as creation is outrageous. Every species has what is perceived as sexual attraction. Except its real purpose is not sexual, it is survival… the sexual component is a mere conduit for the greater purpose.
