Graphical Manipulations #135: Postprandial Trauma, A Rat Rampage, Horror Show And Sheeple!


Well, here we all sit, postprandially replete after a rather bland meal of small meat portions, entrained in a vegetable hotch potch and Liberally covered with a hearty braggadocio sauce! And as we patiently await the concomitant indigestion we realise that rather than a repast to be indulged in the Budget al la carte would have best been transported directly from the kitchen to the toilet without the necessity of passage through our digestive systems! Ahhh! Well! We are all suckers for the Chef de la Treasurer and his promise of a true gustatory delight! Again, and again, and again!!

So, what did budget week bring us?  Illumination and a bright new future?  Not really.  But it did bring out those rats, indignant that they’d been cage confined last week.  So we’ll just throw up our hands, grab another Merlot’ and let them throw some light on the antics of homo sapiens!

Our Bloody Rat thought that Cory Bernardi deserved recognition for his use of the word “fact”.  Something that has a rather tenuous relationship with most politicians.

Bernardi Halal Rat

And he was also impressed with our Prime Winky Rabbott’s new slogan.  Although he was a bit disappointed with the partial plagiarism entailed.

Have A Go Rat

Our Erudite Rat took great interest in budgetary child care issues and after consulting the writings of the wise and learned came up with an appropriate view of the proposed changes.

Eruditis Support

And our Uhuh Rat was most impressed with Mathias (Girly Man) Cormann’s beautifully crafted sentence in which he admitted (albeit verbosely) that he did, indeed, “double dip” and have a bit of a “rort” – entirely legally mind you!!

Uhuh Cormann Rat

The Bloody Rat got a bit antsy with the top 10 per cent of income earners and their superannuation, mainly cos’ he ain’t and he doesn’t!

Superannuation Rat

And then he wondered about those post budget polls which showed that the Lieberals and Labor were now neck and neck in the re-election stakes instead of the 47% to 53% gap that’s been around for a while.

Poll Boost Rat

And, not to be left out, our Rattus Politicus endeavoured to pour some honey on the restless worker bees of the nation!

Honest Politicus Rat

And before we go and put the Rats back where they belong, we have to admit that we were seriously alarmed with Joe (Eleventy) Hockey’s comments about unfinished business.

Budget Horror Show

Which led us into deeper depression when we felt that perhaps the ovine population of this wide brown land were not the only sheep in it!!

The Sheeple

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

POSTSCRIPT: All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics! We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

Graphical Manipulations #134: Budgetary Matters. And No Bloody Rats!


Well here we are! It’s almost budget time and the media hacks, pundits, commentators and revelators are all waiting with bated breath to paraphrase, plagiarise, eulogise, pontificate, prognosticate, and summarise. All for the benefit of we, the voting sheeple, and for their magnificent egos. And I suppose that there’ll be some actual factoids (and some real policy direction) buried deep within – MAYBE!

Thus far the revelations carefully gleaned from the usual pre-budgetary leaks aimed at softening up the sheeple with the good bits and saving the bad bits to be carefully hidden amongst several thousand obfuscatory words would seem to be these. In terms of childcare the government is generously going to rob Peta to pay Pauline, and in terms of giving those pesky drain on the community purse pensioner grubs similar treatment, the government is going to generously rob some Poppy’s and Grandma’s to give other Grandpop’s and Nanna’s a little largesse so that they can buy two cans of dog food a week, rather than just one! How can you not say that you don’t just lurve this Team Australia Government!

Now! As I understand that which is of some interest to a grumpy old man like me, this government is going to stop giving a miniscule bit of pension to those of us who’ve put a small bit of dosh away which reduces our bite on the pension and through interest gives us an income to live on while we wile away the rest of our lives leaning. Which then means that that small bit of dosh is more rapidly diminished to the point that we will eventually get back on the pension to be given more and more pension more rapidly, since our small bit of dosh has so degraded that it doesn’t provide enough income to live on any more. Which means, If I am correct of course, that because the miniscule bit of pension has been taken away, I become a leaner on the pension purse just that much sooner, and given the level of interest on investment these days one could say “least said soonest mendicant”! Well something like that anyhow! Now if that ain’t a shit piece of long term policy making then pray tell me what is!!

It’s also pretty disappointing that our beloved Treasure Joe (Eleventy) Hockey appears to have been left right out of selling his very own budget, which has suddenly become the property of our Prime Winky Dill Rabbott and his toecutting mate Scotty (Cuddles) Morrison. So in order to provide a bit of balance and put a bit more of the spotlight on Joe, we’ve tied up Those Bloody Rats, and let Eleventy out of his office for a bit of the budgetary limelight. GO FOR IT JOE!!

If ever there was one for clarity, it’s Joe!

Mr Eleventy Clarifies1

There are some who say that our Joe can’t count, but I suspect that Joe is very close to creating a new mathematical model in advanced numerology.

Hockey Sums Up1

We should also not forget that Joe and his stogey smoking sidekick Mathias (Girly Man) Cormannnnn made Labor’s fiscal emergency disappear into a deficit black hole by increasing it to a level no longer contemplatable by mortal man! Well done guys!!

Fiscal Emergency1

And you must admit that the longer Joe has been in the job, the more adept he has become at handling very large numbers. See! That numerology skill is paying off!

Hockey Does the Math1

His ability to sustain an incredible argument using the most circuitous logic has also improved beyond the merely unremarkable to being exceptionally mediocre.

Argue Idiot Hockey1

And his willingness to make a self deprecatory joke has also shown that he is, underneath all that, umm heavinesss, a very witty fellow!

Innumerate Hockey1

Mind you. He certainly knows when it’s time to stand firm and clearly express his strong feelings on budgetary matters!

Hockey Paraprosdokian1

And really, it’s not his fault if the tools (biological and electronic) are not quite up to the task of creating a budget that not only pares, but shares and cares.

New Batteries Budget

And overall, on the night, you’ll realise that the 2015/16 budget is, in all its verbosity, numeracy and hype, just another;

Budget Con Job

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

POSTSCRIPT: All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics!

Graphical Manipulations #133: A Bit Of This, A Bit of That! And Of Course, Those Bloody Rats!


It was nice to hear/see the Treasurer Joe (Eleventy) Hockey and our beloved Prime Ministerial Winky Person Tony Abbott deep in denial that they had promised a return to surplus in this term of Government. Apparently that was Labor’s fault. It would appear that both are suffering from a form of dementia that seems to affect those of the conservative ilk. This condition is classified as Politically Induced Dementia, or PID for short. It is of some concern that should the dementia advance significantly over the next 18 months, or less, that they may reach an advanced demented stage known as Politically Induced Dementia Delivering Lost Elections, PIDDLE in the neurological nomenclature. Rapid progression can be reduced by regularly demonstrating to sufferers, via aural and visual means, evidence that they are in actuality failing to remember things that they have said/done previously. Caution must be observed however, as excessive stimulation may give rise to delusions of grandeur, incoherent speech and, in more serious cases, head nodding unaccompanied by speech, and frothing at the mouth. Should any of these severe symptoms appear the patient should be immediately sedated, removed from office, and closely confined, preferably a long way from Australia.

Don’t say you haven’t been warned!  Now.  On to other things.  Like Tony Abbott.  Thinking of said person gave rise to reminiscence and to something that was created way back in February 2012.  A little poem which we shall call; ‘The Tony’!

Phoney Tony, gave me fright

When said he that ‘NO’ was Right,

What convoluted monstrous lie?

Could create such prodigious quandary?

.

In what dark and twisted lies?

Was birthed the fervour to deny

For what cause dare he desire,

To be a serialised denier?

.

And what heresy, what devious art,

Hardened this politician’s heart?

And when good polity raised its head.

Who was it that “NO’d” it dead?

.

For what purpose? For what fame?

To be PM, is that the Game?

What ambition? What fervid grasp?

Prime Ministership is there to clasp!

.

But nil to offer apart from fears,

And negativity, NO’s and jeers!

And will we smile our work to see,

The disastrous PM that you will be?

.

Phoney Tony, burning bright,

I do hope with all my might.

That like a skyrocket brief you’ll fly,

A flash of light, then fade, and die!

.

With apologies to William Blake and his superb piece of poetry ‘The Tyger’.

And that reminded us of Barnaby’s and Llamas.  Or is it a Vicuna?

Llama And Barnaby

In this time of uncertainty, missing budget emergencies, policy backflips and excuses to blame Labor, we should;

Calm Federal ICAC

That should exhume a few skeletons from the political cupboards, brown paper bags and sundry hidey holes.

We were pleased to see that Sophie Mirabella, after a spell right out of just about everything, got close enough to lob a bomb into the Lieberal leadership machinations.  And I thought that she was Tony’s friend!

Sophies Bombshell

Seeing a mention of Scotty (Cuddles) Morrison was too much for The Bloody Rat who couldn’t help sticking his whiskers where they shouldn’t be.

Blackmailer Morriscum Rat

Not only was a bit of Senate blackmail de riguer, but also those bloody stay-at-home mums busily doing a bit of leaning needed a bit of encouragement to get lifting. Child Care Rat

Rat also felt that Julie Bishop’s cleverly crafted irrefutable comparative argument on relative threats was worthy of comment.  Thank God it wasn’t an exposition of Einstein’s Theory – we would be in a muddle!

Danger Jihad Rat

Our Rattus politicus also stepped up wearing a nice smile and flashing his gold tooth to make us feel warm and comfortable.

Political Liar Rat

And our Rat of Scepticism felt that there was an undertone, possibly B flat, in Tony’s reassurance on budget matters.

Uhuh Budget Rat

And given the impact of the 2014 budget, consideration of the likely 2015 budget gave rise to;

Budget Time

And, overall, that resulted in;

Ganga Man Team Oz

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Graphical Manipulations #132: Mediocrity, Myopia, Rat Erudition, The Rat, Remembrance And Gourdliness!


In “The Lucky Country”, Donald Horne wrote; “Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second rate people who share its luck. It lives on other people’s ideas, and, although its ordinary people are adaptable, most of its leaders (in all fields) so lack curiosity about the events that surround them that they are often taken by surprise.” Given the past 18 months it seems that we have time-warped back to the 60’s when Horne wrote those words and our current leaders, one in power, and the other aspiring, are doing their utmost to demonstrate mediocrity as a desirable trait. Such thoughts led to this.

Second Raters

And to the contemplation of our Prime Winky Abbott’s typical response, apart from the umms and ahhhs, to conceptually difficult ideas, such as Anthropogenic Global Warming.

Head in Sand Abbott

Which may very well have led, in part, to his current level of preference as our Prime Minister trending towards single digitness – percentage wise!

Popularity Abbott

And that led to wondering why a country such as ours can talk endlessly about rapid transit systems across our wide brown land and yet . . . . . . . .

Bullet Train Can Cant

Or we can endlessly argue about building our nation’s defence systems but seem to well . . . . . . .

Jap Sub Can Cant

Which led Rattus eruditis to consult his extensive library of insults for every occasion and come up with;

Erudite Mediocre Rat

And having one Rat on the scene always acts as an attractant to others and The Bloody Rat came forthwith to add a bit of farce to the occasion. Especially with regard to the $4 million government funding largess for Bjorn Lomborg.

Climate Farce Rat

However, he also thought that Scotty (Niceness) Morrison may have an ulterior motive with his latest announcement.

Nanny Rat

Somehow we all seem to have survived the media overkill on the centenary of the Gallipoli disaster which seemed more to highlight just one instance of what is a long history of Australian conflict in many theatres of war. While there were cursory mentions of WWI Europe, WWII and Vietnam, Korea didn’t get a mention along with a few others like the Boer, Boxer, Malaysia & Indonesia, Iraq, Afghanistan.  So, overall, this little graphic does it for me!

Lest We Forget

And finally we couldn’t leave without a reminder from Our Gourd as to just who are the masters and who are the servants in a democracy.

Government Servant Gourd

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Graphical Manipulations #131: AGW, Responsiveness, A Rat, Monkeys, Pain, Politics And Other Bits!


With rising temperatures across the planet setting more records the US government announced that the globe experienced its hottest month of March since record keeping began in 1880. Apparently, the period of January to March was also the warmest on record, if you’re inclined to give credence to the monthly report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The latest data, which takes into account global averages across land and sea surfaces, follows announcements from the same US government scientists that 2014 was the hottest year in modern history.

We’ve made comment on the Anthropogenic Warming issues previously:

https://deknarf.wordpress.com/2011/07/20/food-for-thought-3-spaceship-earth-%e2%80%93-%e2%80%98houston-we-have-a-problem/

https://deknarf.wordpress.com/2012/07/19/food-for-thought-13-climate-change-the-elephant-in-the-room/

https://deknarf.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/en-passant-8-climate-change-sceptics-conspiracy-theories/

What is surprising is that we have a Government that, despite evidence to the contrary, which is becoming more certain day by day, still holds the view that the changes in the climate are just normal variation, or just not there at all. So what do they do? The Rabbott government finds $4m for the climate contrarian Bjorn Lomborg to establish his “Consensus Centre” at the University of Western Australia whilst trying to impose deep spending cuts to the higher education sector. So we get this “methodology” from Lomborg’s little empire which the Danes and others have decided to cease funding.  An empire which plays down the effects of global warming.  Apparently one of the Consensus Centre’s other tasks will be to advise on policy concerning developing countries in the Pacific. You know! The one’s particularly vulnerable to climate change! It seems that the University was very supportive of the proposal.

And somewhat associated with what seems to be a lust for income by our centres of academia regardless of credentials we also learn that our Universities are paying an estimated $250 million a year to unregulated middlemen to recruit international students, despite knowing that many of these agents are corrupt and deal in fraudulent documents. That’s something like $1 billion in four years! I wonder if those are Australian tax dollars? No wonder they are anxious to be deregulated and charge large fees for their courses. And to top it off the Four Corners investigation (ABC1, 20th April) has shown that these agents are fiddling student applications and the requirements for entry, apparently with the collusion of University entrance exams of lesser quality than that generally accepted. Further down the chain the Universities are relaxing not only ethical standards but also achievement criteria to essentially qualify people who shouldn’t be given a qualification. Sad to say I’ve had direct experience (some 25 years ago) of the issue of reducing the relaxation of requirements for passing courses It was a fancy statistical balancing act then to justify its use. So it’s not uncommon and it’s been going on for some considerable time. However, it would seem that these days Universities are more places focussed on earning rather than learning!

And what of the week? Given our new consensus centre we thought that this was an appropriate drought response from our Lieberal/Neutered Puppy Coalition after considering the advice from said centre of course.

Coalition Drought Response

And out of the West he came like a rampaging Quokka, threatening secession, the end of cooperation and the end of Rabbott’s Team Australia unless he got lots and lots of money to feed his economic crisis. Now where have I heard those two words before?

WA Emperor Rat

Our favourite Prime Minister Rabbott demonstrated his penchant for raucous drinkers in rowdy bars, and skolling the amber fluid. We’re told Tone’s was “very proud” of his achievement.

Skol Beer Monkeys

Our Minister for Social Services, Scotty (On Water Matters) Morrison was being coy with the detail of his revitalisation of the ministry policies but assured us that he would keep it simple!

There is only pain

Our Erudite Rat, after consulting the oracle, otherwise know as the “Oxford Dictionary of Humourous Quotations”, thought that this little revelation was particularly apt.

Erudite Politics Rat

And the recent attempts at policy creation and policy backflips by our esteemed Government reminded us of days gone by when we still celebrated Guy Fawkes with bonfires and firecrackers and we referred to those that failed to perform as designed as “fizzoggs”. Seemed appropriate!

Its a fizzog

And that thought led to this!

Policy Danger

Graphical Manipulations #130: @#%&?!^ Polls, Told Ya So, Meaningful Toads, Fantasy, And Bloody Rats!


It was the dulcet text of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Mark Kenny in 12 point Arial telling us that; “Three key findings in this month’s Fairfax-Ipsos poll deserve mention: (1) over a third of voters believe the GST should be raised; (2) six out of 10 say addressing the budget deficit should remain a “high priority”; and (3) 43 per cent say generous tax concessions on superannuation contributions should be wound in – and not just for the wealthy, but for middle-income earners as well.” And one chart was provided to demonstrate these earth shattering facts. Well that was all that I could find chasing through those ‘Ctrl+click to follow link’ thingies! WOW, eh? Just WOW!

Ipsos GST

I couldn’t find any demonstrable evidence of 6 out of ten voters “highly prioritising” addressing the budget deficit of which, according to our leaders, there now isn’t one.  Nor could I find any evidence that demonstrated that 43% were in favour of winding back tax concessions on superannuation.  Just might have to accept Mark’s statement that such was the case.  Pardon me while I pop out to the kitchen and get that packet of salt I saw out there – a sprinkling is required!  And as for the 37% in support of increasing the GST rate, I’d just like to point out that the same graph indicates that 59% ain’t! And that represents a sizeable majority to this little brain.  I was even more underwhelmed when the very same graphic indicated that there were 1404 respondents to this earth-shattering piece of polling.  Having had a passing acquaintance with the use of statistics and sampling I began to wonder about the sampling methodology which, despite a visit to the Ipsos website, left me, well, still wondering.  I therefore, in the true spirit of scientific rigor, confined said poll results as propounded by Mark to the circular filing cabinet where they now rest along with all the other scraps of rejected information.

SMH Poll

And by the way, the other click on the circle to register your vote poll you often have accompanying such huffy puff as Marks “ANALYSIS”.  I’m pleased that you have a disclaimer attached which truly reflects the value of these polls – effing useless!!  I’ve voted separately at least three times in this particular poll.  But to be balanced I voted “yes”, “Not sure” and “No”!  I would have continued but I got bored!  And if I can do it, just imagine all the little political trolls busily engaged in doing the same thing in order the skew the results of such unprotected polls.  So will you just give up on this garbage and spend your time doing some real journalistic stuff.  You know, holding our lying politicians to account, asking serious questions and demanding serious answers, calling out the lies.  That stuff that, apparently, once formed part of the charter of the fourth estate!  So much for polls!

Back in the days before The Rabbott Nightmare, around June 2013, we pinched a pledge graphic and in satirical jest graphically modified it to represent where we thought the NO Coalition might be taking us, despite their claims to the contrary.  We are pleased to report that we can, with a high degree of confidence, safely say; “We told you so.  And you didn’t listen”!  There was this;

Abbott scrap GST1

And there was this one;

Abbott scrap pensioner perks1

Followed by this one.

Abbott scrap poor paid tax1

And we saw Work Choices, that which was dead, buried and cremated, once more arise, miraculously, from the dead.

Abbott scrap worker rights1

And finally there was this, where once again, the NO Coalition showed its equity and compassion by having a go at penalty rates.

Abbott scrap penalty rates1

We were however remiss in that we didn’t foresee the Superannuation Tax Attack.  Ahh well!  Five out of six ain’t too bad!

Our Toads have been very helpful in simplifying the gobbledegook provided in the Government’s energy white paper into something a little more understandable.

Electricity Meaning Toads

This week we saw the State’s sit down in the spirit of harmony and cooperation and divide up the GST take in an orderly, compassionate, and equitable manner.  Kind of!

Fantasy GST

That Bloody Rat, who’s still recovering from Easter incidentally, couldn’t resist a brief comment when he found out that our Prime Winky Dill felt the need for a personal photographer.

Photo Rabbott Rat

And finally his Cynical rat mate was duly impressed with the clear and concise statement given to the Senate inquiry by the Corporate Tax Association.  That they had serious concerns about the integrity of the tax system was truly – self serving claptrap!

Tax Avoid Uhuh Rat

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Graphical Manipulations #129: Easter, Lambies, Rabbotts, The Ratty Rabble, Fogging And Proverbs!


Well!  That’s Easter over and done with and it all seems to have gone off pretty much without a hitch.  We weren’t the subject of a terrorist attack, we didn’t decimate the populace too much by smashing cars into one another or into inanimate objects as we tried to get out of the cities in droves and into holiday places in droves.  We consumed large amounts of chocolate and, quite probably, large amounts of food, and alcohol.  We watched benignly as most of the Middle East continued to decimate its population and infrastructure with its internecine war kindly assisted by various outsiders with vested interests.  We watched as in Kenya extremists under the guise of religion proceeded to murder those who professed another religion just because they didn’t believe in their religion.  And not to be outdone, Australia produced a bunch of Onanists with miniscule IQ’s, crooked cross tattoos, and a variety of xenophobic placards who were intent on Reclaiming Australia!  Just what they were reclaiming it from was rather uncertain and not very well articulated but no doubt we will be appraised once they start marching in jackboots up and down the streets.  Couple of points: 1. Maybe your name would be better as “Re:claim Australia – a tad more punch, and relevant, and; 2. A guy called Samuel Johnson, a long long time ago – that’s more than ten years to you, said – “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel”!  He was right, and you are!  I could have used some more appropriate Australian appellations as to what you are but that would have ruined the tenor of the quote.

Yep!  Four days of religiosity didn’t seem to make much difference to the state of play and the platitudinous utterances from the various religious leaders still carried the same resonance of hollowness as they fell, once again, on deaf ears.  And in the tradition of Easter celebrating the demise and rise of a Judeo-Christian, Islamic icon we also had chickens, and eggs, rabbits and bilbies and we’ve even got these two ducklings with their view on the true meaning of Easter;

The Easter Ducks

In that week that was we saw Jacqui Lambie announce that she was forming a new party under her name.  Jacqui, naming a party after yourself is just a tad egotistical and never augurs well for its longevity – just look at the Palmer United Party!

Lambie Party Toads

Our beloved bottom of the polls pollster Prime Minister Rabbott was discovered having a bit of a rest after all those backflips. Oh! Sorry! Policy Redirectional Reviews!

Easter Rabbott

That Bloody Rat was impressed that Alan (God Calls Me God) Jones had provided a lengthy list of to-do’s to PM Rabbott, especially since Tony seemed incapable of getting a list together himself.  We’re assured that his list is chock-a-block full of Jonesy’s ‘common sense’!

Jonesy Says Rat

Rat was particularly enamoured with the hypocritical behaviour of our big companies who, whilst loudly protesting the iniquity of the Federal taxation system and how it was forcing them into penury and pathetic profits, were happily skimming a little of the top!  I think in mafia parlance it’s called ‘sipping at the well’?

Tax Avoidance Rat

It became increasingly obvious to The Rat that Joe (Eleventy) Hockey was the main problem with regard to taxation and other fiscal matters given his encycolopaedic understanding of the difference between a profit, and a loss.

Profit Loss Rat

He was also impressed with the spyfolks characteristically reserved understatement with regard to the successful passage of the data retention legislation.  Ever vigilant, our spyfolks have neither confirmed, nor denied, that the reason the lights were burning all night in the office was due to the wild party undertaken post passage.

Spying Rat

And Rats mate Cynical wasn’t surprised at all when it was revealed that consumers were in a state of policy anxiety.

Policy Stress Uhuh Rad

Through the week, amongst all the factoids being perpetrated, our trusty policy bereft government told us all that we were involved in a conversation.  The conclustion arrived at was that it was just . . . . . . . ;

Fogging Lies

And all of that led to proverbs, I’ve no idea why, except perhaps as a sequeway into this.

Wildcat sans Tigers

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

 PS: You may have noticed that the comment usually placed here has now gone. Seeing that it was perpetuating another Tony Abbott lie That Bloody Rat thought it might be better to remove it, rather than perpetuate it. More power to The Bloody Rat!
