Graphical Manipulations #72: Priorities, Whore’s Laughs, Lies, Rats And A Cake!

There was a moment of terror last week when this graphical manipulator was faced with a dearth of manipulations.  If your bereft of a graphic or lacking some ridiculous statement from those who you are desirous of manipulating then it’s necessary to fall back on your own resources – YIKES!  You are gripped by that terrible feeling that you will have to think for yourself!  Fortunately however, rescue was at hand.  Along came the graphical and the manipulatable and didn’t disappoint with their generous offerings.  So here we go!!

There are always the graphics that fill you with dismay coming from the various war fronts.  It doesn’t matter where it is there is always the ever present piece of weaponry (generally AK47’s) and accompanying ammunition.  This one just about says it all I guess;

Grouse house

There are times when try as you might you just couldn’t do any better than what reality presents to you.  This is one of those times;

Horse laugh

I’m wagering that the celebrating was male dominated!

Given the NO Coalition’s penchant for shutting down our industries willy nilly (excluding Cadbury’s of course) and Tony Abbott’s view that many of the unemployed employees will feel ‘liberated’, this seemed somewhat appropriate;

NC Centrelink

Offering up the not so bleeding obvious also seems to be popular with our current government, especially the Prime Minister.  I suspect Tony never really got the concept of credit in Economics 101;

Cant spend Abbott

At this point The Rat decided that he would take a light hearted look at some of the more delightful bits of news floating around.  Eric Abetz’ comment on handouts to Cadbury but not to Ardmona seemed relevant;

Chocolate Rat

And then there was Gina Rhinehart’s concept of valuing our politicians.  It would seem at somewhat less than she would be prepared to pay migrant workers;

Generous Gina rat

And then along came that portentious prat Mr Eleventy with a profound profundity;

Heavy lifting rat

Kevin Andrews was also pretty adventurous with his unsustainable welfare commentary.  Obviously facts, research and relevant data don’t enter into Kev’s ability to spin a tale;

Tell me lies

And of course we couldn’t go past Tony Abbott’s desire to tame those parts of the media that actually report the news without fear or favour without applying the Murdochian propaganda measure to what Murdoch considers the Australian hoi polloi should be exposed to;

ABC bias

And that left me considering cakes – can’t say why.  But it lead to this;

The NC cake


Afterthought:  This NO Coalition Government is trashing the good standing of Australia.  It cares little about its people in its fanatical pursuit of ultra-conservative ideology.  It is using the weapons of minority xenophobia, the secret fears and uncertainty of the general public and blatant propaganda, aided by a complaisant media, to turn this country into something is has never been – bigoted, racist, xenophobic, selfish, self-indulgent, self-obsessed, uncaring and a disgrace to all those things that have made Australia a great country! Tolerance, mateship, community, fairness, honesty and a love of freedom in both speech and expression!



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, al la NO Coalition!  We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

    Good one Deknarf. Heavy lifting indeed. We know who Eleventy Joe is talking about when he says “everyone” & it sure ain’t he or his ilk, including big biz & their CEOs on inflated salaries. They’ll still wallow in their lurks & perks sucking the taxpayer dry.


    • deknarf says:

      Yep! From now on I will be referring to the working people of Australia as slaves! Not those captured and made to work for food and lodging but those who are now the economic slaves of businesses


  2. The Beeb got it right! As far as the Coalition is concerned – it really is the ‘Year of the Whores’


    • deknarf says:

      Certainly appear to be whores to big business and Murdoch! I’m beginning to hold the view that the NO Coalition represents the modern day slavers. Rather than slavery by imprisonment and threat of death, they enslave the working class in economic penury trapping them forever as their worker slaves. One reason why, I suspect, that they always attack organised labour at every opportunity. Like now!


      • You wont get any argument from me D. The only light at the end of the tunnel is when traditionally right wing historians such as John Hirst start pointing out that we live in a society and not an economy and that the productivity commission in its current form needs to be scrapped.


  3. Having worked for an undertaker during my checkered career D, I can assure you that as far as picking up Joe goes it’s a matter of ‘family must carry’ as we used to say. Perhaps he could tuck into that neo-lib cake if he wants to lose a few kilos. As there’s nothing between his ears he’s clearly off to a ‘head start’.
