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!”


JOURNOS SUPPORT LOONY LEFT... poll

Surprised? Well, you shouldn’t be because it’s simple really. If you are of the rabid Left you will gravitate to the media as surely as a paedophile will gravitate to the priesthood.



A FULL HOUSE IS A 3-CARD TRICK

PM Gillard’s dry weeping exhibition in the House over her NDIS legislation evoked polarised opinions between genuine concern and a crocodilian sham. The evidence of an alert photographer tends to suggest the latter.


WHAT A FUNNY WAR!

We will not complain of Islamic immigration for fear of being labelled a racist. We will not complain of the Prime Minister for fear of being labelled a redneck nutjob. Crippled manufacturers will not complain of a carbon tax for fear of a $1.1 million fine. Media will not tell the truth for fear of litigation.


BOATLOADS OF OYSTERS BUT WHICH ARE THE DODGY ONES?

The UK, and continental Europe, is feeling the wrath of the Islamic imperative: We infidels have no right to life and the question now being asked is whether it's time to take oysters off the menu.
