Sad to say the effort of keeping a light-hearted and satirical bent to the graphical manipulations related to this increasingly inept and incompetent NO Coalition government seems to be becoming more difficult as they plumb the depths of inhumanity. While the inhumanity towards the less fortunate is currently directed at asylum seekers, whose position readily permits their abuse, neglect, and mental torture through various threats and destruction of their hope, I suspect that it will not be long before we see the similar treatment directed at the less fortunate members of the Australian community. Budget night comes to mind. As a consequence black humour is tending to creep into the Graphical Manipulation forays despite the plenitude of ridiculousness issuing forth from this bunch of collective NO Coalition nouneries, “a muffling of idiots”. Even The Rat is showing evident signs of repressed anger.
Anyhow, the above, a handy Fascism Checklist, pinched from who knows where, and a few accurately placed ticks resulted in;
Thank your respective diety for that! And that led to thoughts of Fascist removals (similar to furniture removal but so much more bloody) and an earlier time when it was time and;
The Rat came bounding in with a bit of light-hearted reflection on the antics of the NO Coalition with regards to the BOOKCASES OF BRANDIS;
And MEDICARE’S BEST FRIEND;
The joyous news that Tony Abbott remained less popular than a rat with a gold tooth and that TURNBULL BESTS ABBOTT;
Rat was highly amused that despite THE BUDGET EMERGENCY and the impending disaster as AUSTRALIA BECOMES UNSUSTAINABLE our Scotty Morrison could still spend a penny or two to keep the detention centre guardians in the manner to which they are accustomed;
And Rat was particularly amused that Tony thought that Scotty was STRONG AND DECENT! Just the type of man you need to run Stalag Luft Manus;
The whole Manus debacle and the apparent attempts at cover-up and disingenuous treatment of fact led to thoughts about fish and fishy tales and just fishiness in general with;
Those fishy thoughts led to considering bullshit! It’s manufacture, extrusion and use as a fertiliser, particularly by politicians. That led to;
Fertiliser, growth and the mad desire of the NO Coalition to blame everything on the worker and their unbelievably arrogant demands to be able to live reasonably comfortably and house and feed their children, led to thoughts of “adjustments” to labour laws and, naturally, that led to resurrections with;
All of which led finally to the tragic realisation that Australia had elected a bunch of politicians who had taken the fine art of factual refinement out into the sluttish and gaudy street of outright dishonesty and this;
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!
