As another week of the NO Coalition government doing and saying nothing ghosts by; they may be doing something but they aren’t saying anything if they are; we continue to wonder at the amazing ability of the mainstream media to also do/say nothing in accord with this apparently new philosophy emanating from the house on the hill in Canberra.
I understand that extreme right wing oppressive governments usually resort to covert behaviour, secrecy and repressive laws to advance their agenda, as well as focussing attention on some group, or groups, that have the capacity to instil fear, discontentment and racial hatred in the general populace. Oh! One mustn’t forget the occasional interference in the election process. They are usually aided and abetted by a fourth estate either controlled by fear or controlled by similar interests to those of the government.
Hmmm? So, we have Operation Sovereign Stupidity (sorry, Borders) under military control thereby imposing secrecy upon its operation as well as a government that has developed lockjaw and, we have a equally conservative government in Queensland imposing anti right of association laws on biker gangs ostensibly to prevent their criminal behaviour and, we have refugees (economic or otherwise) being rebadged as ‘illegals’ and, votes mysteriously go missing in a crucial Liberal seat in the September election and, votes disappear altogether in the Western Australia Senate election and finally, we have an obviously pro-conservative Murdochian press demonstrating clearly its intent to change a government and to ensure that the opposition has no voice in the aftermath of the election. The question you have to ask is are we seeing the birth of extreme right wing oppressive government in the land of Oz? Not being a conspiracy theorist but more of a ‘coincidentalist’ that’s certainly food for thought!!
Anyhow back to actuality with regard to what we do know, and what we might imagine we know. Less known unknowns, unknown unknowns and more known knowns and imaginary knowns. We do know that whiney Christopher Pyne contemplated the sale to private interests of the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) debt and that give rise to;
We also know that there’s been a lot of accusations about Federal conservatives dipping rather freely into the recovery of costs and that our Prime Minister has been strong in the defence of these so-called rorts (aka legitimate expenses). That gave rise to;
Defending the indefensible reminded of those who deny the undeniable and that raised thoughts of Anthropogenic Global Warming and our Prime Minister’s thoughts on such an issue, which gave rise to;
Which naturally reminded us of all the other deniers of the undeniable in the NO Coalition and that produced:
And then the rat came back, to drop a couple of faecal pellets of pithy stuff with this;
As well as this;
Now that the rat’s gone . . . we also know that the new NO Coalition Federal government is being excessively secretive, and not being sure as to why bought out the collective nounery lexicon with;
And we do know that there are a lot of people who are still suffering inconsolably over Labor’s demise and the rise of the conservative free-marketeers and that brought about thoughts of sorrows drowning, the resultant hangover, and this;
Finally, we also know that we now have two leaders of the major parties in this so-called Democracy of Oz and that, sadly and with growing disappointment at the leadership deficit emergency, led to;
And there we have it, apart from one departing thought from an atheistic, so-called latte sipping lefty about the Child Abuse Royal Commission which was; If you can’t trust the church with your children, why would you trust them with your faith?
