The Feminists unable to think; utter their meaningless slogans in the illusion of discourse.

I dread the coming of every Australia Day. Not because of what it stands for, but rather the amount of precious oxygen that gets wasted trotting out the likes of El Presdente Fitzsimmons, the Self-entitled Stolen Peoples, the dour and sour anti-patriots and the flag-haters. It's a shame that people like that consider themselves Australian, yet feel entitled to piss on everybody else's fun. What happened to the good ol' days when the moralising and sermonising was limited to the day after, when we were chatised for being a nation of drunks? Oh, that's right, those people who find the essence of being Australian as irritating as sand in their nether regions have moved that to ANZAC day. I suppose I should be thankful that we get a month and bit break from when these arse-clowns quiet down to inaudible muttering to when they arc up again.

I wish they'd be thankful that we had the opportunity to be a nation. Sure the circumstances weren't all that favourable, and mistakes were made along the way. Though, I highly doubt that many in the First Fleet were all that enthusiastic about being banished to some hot, godforsaken hell-hole on the other side of the globe - either as punishment or to play baby-sitter to a bunch of crims. You want to see what an invasion by immigration looks like? Go to Europe. Anyway back on track. Mistakes were made and succesive governments probably did invest too much time interfering with Aboriginals instead of just letting them be. But the end result is we became the nation we are today - complete with welfare, grants and free money for all who feel that Australia has wronged them, or that Australia owes them. I guess that's why the whingers whinge; it must be leave a bitter taste knowing that all they what about Australia is the reason they get free money in their bank accounts...

Another great meaningful cartoon Paul. Thanks for the laugh.
