SWAN DIVE A POLITICALLY COSTLY BELLY FLOP

What Swan really said in his clearly uncomfortable Press conference today was that the time available to him to further cook the books had lapsed.


OUR NAVY IS WAVING A WHITE FLAG TO WOODEN BOATS

Defence force chief, General David Hurley, said yesterday the Federal Opposition policy to turn back asylum seeker boats won't stop people smuggling. Mmmm, now it's getting serious.


SWAN STILL THINKING SURPLUS

It appears McTernan will be working overtime as the shift in "refugee" costs to the foreign aid budget means Swan is still dreaming of a budget surplus.



2ND AMENDMENT 1ST MISTAKE

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."



SEPARATION OF POWERS?

Justice Rares, in his latest judgment, decided to remove his shoes and socks and wade into the putrid pool of politics.



SLIPPERY DOES IT AGAIN!

In ruling the Slipper case not go to trial, Justice Rares, said the reason was because it was "politically motivated". Mmmm, really?



PRANK GONE WRONG... but there is more to it

What seemed like a harmless prank has gone terribly wrong and resulted in the death of a nurse, Jacintha Saldanha. Two creative kids will now be scarred for life and two others are now without a mother. So why must there be more to this?


DEAR MS GILLARD,

Let me explain something to you, and I know you will read this: 



GILLARD'S POOR JUDGMENT WAS ALWAYS HER ACHILLES HEEL

Ms Gillard, have you, or your Office, been in contact with Bruce Wilson?”

“Not that I’m aware of”, was Gillard’s reply.

Interpreted from polispeak to an honest answer, her reply was, “Yes, I texted Bruce to see if our deal still held good, but not from my own phone.”


GILLARD'S DREAMS WILL BECOME THE NIGHTMARES OF OTHERS

The world we would all like is sometimes unachievable and it takes maturity to accept that.


AIN'T NOTHING LIKE THIS DAME

Elisabeth Murdoch, a rare monument to true womanhood.

A stencil of selfless achievement others can’t even aspire to.

A rare blend of kindness, intelligence and altruism that will live way longer than she has and thoughts go to all her proud family.

Like her roses, she too will live on.



DEFICIT SPENDING BY A FISCAL FOOL

I apologise for this article but I have to get it off my chest. 

Idealogues and unlimited funds are a dangerous mix. Particularly when a simple Party-line vote apportions borrowings up to $300 billion to an intellectual and economic dunce. 

“I have steered this nation through a GFC”, said Wayne Swan.

What a load of frog droppings!
