IF WE HAD A 2ND AMENDMENT, WE’D STILL HAVE ABBOTT

The undemocratic removal of an elected PM only to replace him with a government of diametrically opposed philosophy would ensure any country was up in arms… and unfortunately we would also have had Whitlam for bit longer, but another politician took all our arms away.


WAUGH WOULDN’T WALK… IS THAT ALSO NOT CRICKET?


AN EXTRAORDINARY PRESSER

All countries spy on other countries…Russia does, the UK does, the US does and Australia does. Or do we set up foreign embassies and consulates because used-by-dated politicians fancy the local tucker and hookers?



HANG AROUND UNCLE KEV,

… we might need you to cry again for another “stolen generation”

I’ll take two and I know a few other families that will help! Aboriginal kids must not be abandoned like this. They must not be taught to believe that Islamic style practices involving sexual abuse of children are okay here simply because white Aboriginal activists demand we turn a blind eye. Where is Turnbull on this? Is he still busily working on a credible response to his 30 losing polls?


WE'VE LOST MORE THAN OUR CRICKET TEAM

... a baggy green was at stake

This is something we might expect of Kiwis or Pakistanis, but not Australians. We have not just lost respect for the game of cricket, we have lost respect for Australia. How else could our sporting representatives contrive such an act when they know every camera on the ground is following the ball. Did they intend to be caught? If not, then Steve Smith and company are blithering idiots.


BALL TAMPERING? BUT IT'S LEGAL


THEY’RE NO LONGER SHY LITTLE THINGS WITH PRETTY BOWS, ARE THEY

It all started when Whitlam decreed that women should work (as if they didn’t already work). Like all good socialists, he set out to demonise the roles he didn’t want women to perform. A role that cared for a family in a home environment was vilified in the most demeaning of terms like “housewife”. Julia Gillard, was later to extend his view of homogenised humanity and said, the term “prostitute” was more accurate than “housewife”.


SHORTEN FEARS GREEN SUICIDE

Julia Gillard’s Beyond Blue could have an accelerated clientele rate as the Greens rush for her counsel. Labor despises the Greens and rues the day it needed to rely on them for government as it did when Julia was caught a few numbers short.


HOWZAT??

HTF are we still duelling and cavorting with such a racist nation as South Africa? Oh, I forgot it's black racism this time, and apparently that's okay.


SOME REFUGEES LIKE AUSTRALIA

Marie is an Egyptian linguist who follows PP and continues to tell her remarkable story as a Christian in Australia:



JAY WEATHERILL WASN'T REALLY GOD'S FAULT

... it was the wine!

God made mankind… golly I can’t say that any more! I’ll start again. God made people with dongers and people with front bottoms who had the ability to protect themselves from all other people who would do them harm.


A RACE WHERE ALL THREE NO-HOPERS GET A PLACE

I forced myself to watch that South Australia forum last night where we saw the best of Labor, Liberal, and a little Greek bloke, strut their stuff. With a choice of one of those three it became clear why South Australia has been a basket case for as long as we can remember. Seventeen years of the Labor bloke with the blank eyes and he is still a chance? How the hell does that happen?


IT'S MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY

... so there's the highway

It’s difficult to construct an effective Administration within one term and with Rex Tillerson now gone media will be crying White House chaos again, but Trump always gets what he wants while running rings around them and the DC mob.



DOES LABOR DESERVE A GOOSE AS NATIONAL PRESIDENT?

That the Labor Party will actually elect him is symbolic of just how far it is still addicted to a quagmire of incompetence. Each time he is asked in future for an interview as President, memories of Rudd/Gillard/Rudd with the swollen appendix of Treasurer Swan will flood back to haunt the Party.
