Circle Of Life

"Tax cuts, tax cuts, vote me in"
said Scomo with a boyish grin
Hip pocket nerves Australia-wide
twitched with predictability
Three days after ScoMo glory

when he died, one knew for sure scummo was going to win...


There is a certain amount of counterpoint to Bob Hawke's death. This was going to impact Labor chances at yesterday's elections. As "the best" PM Hawke wasn't really. His death just before the elections would have cost 2 points to Labor.


Fraser was a better man. Keating was a better PM than Hawke. Gough Whitlam knew his days were counted and pushed hard for great reforms, including free medicare and free university education, but was possibly entrapped by the CIA, after having dumped Australia's support for the Yanks in Vietnam.


at least tony abbott is gone...

So the election was a disaster for the fair dinkum aussies in favour of a Trump-scummo bullshit advertising god man. A great victory tonight, for bullshit ... and a miracle for crap. Wonderful. Thank you to all who work so hard to make the future go back to the darkness of KONservatism of John Howard... Yoooohooooo! 

fighting the bastard...


Christian Porter took a calculated risk when he quit as Western Australia's Treasurer to pursue a career in federal politics and he's not hedging his bets now.

on "Nutters" ...

on "Nutters" ...

In an interview given to Australia’s ABC network former Prime Minister Paul Keating referred to the Australian intelligence agencies as “nutters”. The comment was in the context of the advice that those intelligence agencies were giving the government on relations with China, Australia’s most important economic partner by a considerable margin.

manspreading in the 1960s...


In 2003, George W. Bush took us to war to liberate Iraq from the despotism of Saddam Hussein and convert that nation into a beacon of freedom and prosperity in the Middle East.

Tuesday, Mike Pompeo flew clandestinely into Baghdad, met with the prime minister, and flew out in four hours. The visit was kept secret, to prevent an attack on the Americans or the secretary of state.

the out-of-tune-band-man was confidently playing alone, banging, wheezing and trumpeting loudly to a group of grumpy muppets...


... And it has to be said that for a man with essentially one tune to play, and nobody to accompany him, Scott Morrison's doing a transfixingly good job.

Telling Tomorrow Today

I'm ScoMo PM of the Future, 
telling tomorrow today.
My faith is like a suture, 
I Pray II'll never fray.

I've put the budget back in black- at least I will next year
Abracadabra, vote for me now
What could there be to fear?

Global debt's doubled last decade
20 trillion dollars or so
How are we to pay the price
with interest rates so low?

I've put the budget back in black- at least I will next year
Abracadabra, vote for me now
What could there be to fear?

how fast are the oceans warming?


Climate change from human activities mainly results from the energy imbalance in Earth's climate system caused by rising concentrations of heat-trapping gases. About 93% of the energy imbalance accumulates in the ocean as increased ocean heat content (OHC).


our hypocrisy has no boundaries, not even by our choice of friends: the UK and the saudis...


I suspect that, a year ago, under orders from the boffins at The Australian (unless he is a freelancer right-wing Nazi cartoonist) Lobbecke did this lovely impression of Vladimir Putin. It's in line with the rest of the Western media. The Headline — plumped up by a glorious rubbish article by our Liar-in-Residence, Andrew Bolt, tells us "... thrives on getting away with murder"...
