Graphical Manipulations #90: NO, Money, The Bloody Rat, Whiteboards, Disappearances, Gobbledeish And Swill!

Greetings fellow “Leaners”.  Yep! I’m talking at you!  And how do I know you’re a “leaner”?  Easy, peasy!  Because Joe (Eleventy) Hockey has provided me with the simplest of definitions.  And that is: “Leaner (noun).  A lazy, free-loading, no-good, do-nothing loafer who is in receipt of any form of benefit from Australia’s long-suffering, wonderfully beneficent NO Coalition government.”  That’s the one that has a BIG BUDGET EMERGENCY and a PROBLEM WITH LYING.

Such “Leaning” people are particularly epitomised by the elderly self-indulgent pensioner, the greedy student, the disabled, the young unemployed with delusions of living a fruitful life, parents who want government benefits for their children including a quality education and finally wimpy sicko’s who have the nerve to desire medical treatment.  The gall of these people is beyond belief!

I’m advised that the list is not yet finalised since the present definition may, incorrectly, include those who should, by virtue of their pro-NO Coalition tendencies and high incomes, be more appropriately classified as “Lifters”.  Rumour is that the difference between “Leaners” and “Lifters” is to be determined by whether you use a tax minimisation accountant to do your returns, or not!

There’s also an uncomfortable feeling that there’s something missing from the L and L appellation, and that’s and extra L word.  After much thought, particularly about politicians, I suspect that that word is Lamprey!  “Leaners, Lifters, Lampreys!” has such a nice ring to it when you consider that;  ‘Lampreys are an order of jawlessfish, the adult of which is characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth.  Currently there are about 38 known species of lampreys.  Although they are well known for boring into the flesh of other fish to suck their blood, in fact only a minority (of political disclination) do so; only 18 species of lampreys are actually parasitic.  The lampreys are a very ancient lineage of vertebrates, though their exact relationship to hagfishes, jawed vertebrates and homo sapiens is still a matter of conjecture.’

Enough now of the diatribe, better to return to the Graphical Manipulation objectives thereby avoiding further angst.  Pleased we were to see the Apple I-phone get into the act of active NO Coalition disparagement with;


That asylum seekers had much more to consider than just their unfortunate circumstances;

Asylum Considerations

And that That pesky bloody Rat was ever ready to put his perspective on the weeks events with regard to jihadists;

Hiding Jihadists Rat

Criminal law regimes in other countries;

New Ideas Rat

That one of our new Senators has a particular view of our own Prime Winky Dill that’s not largely at variance with the rest of the population;

Psychopath Rat

And that despite all the revelations and realisations that there were actually people in this wide brown land for some 40,000 years they were a pretty unsettled lot;

Terra Nullius Rat

Who thought that if the current government could put as much effort into running the country as they put into propaganda machines, we’d be going gangbusters;

Propaganda Rat

And finally that independent and innovative thinking was not yet entirely dead in the Australian historical retrospective;


Regardless of the Rat, we wondered how the Joe (Eleventy) Hockey realised his dream of the appropriate THREE WORD SLOGAN;

The Whiteboard

The processes behind making lots of asylum seekers and their boats disappear, not necessarily from the naval radar, but certainly from the perception of the Aussie voter;


How one could best emulate obfuscatory linguistic manipulative lexiconical verbalisation with half-pike and twist;


And of what happens when Paul Keating’s Senate disease sporulates and infects the House of Representatives;

Unrepresentative Swill

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

    Enjoy reading your posts, keep them coming, maybe we can get rid of this government in about 12 months by what the abbott said this morning about a senate not doing what he wants.


    • deknarf says:

      Thanks! One can live in hope, but considering their popularity I suspect they’ll be too scared to go to the polls! 😉


  2. Joy Cooper says:

    Go get ’em, Deknarf. Plenty more material in the last couple of days including Abbott’s sickening lauding of the Japanese WWII soldiers, & the mini submariners that entered Sydney Harbour killing 21 sailors on HMAS Kuttabul, in his brown-nosing speech to Abe. Even the RSL president was soft on him making excuses. Shameful.


    • deknarf says:

      Thanks Joy.
      Though I am a Japanophile Abbott’s comments about Japanese and Korean conscripts during WWII where unconscionable and tasteless. God only knows who writes his speeches but quite obviously out of touch with war crime behaviour by the Japanese/Koreans.
      Yes it is time to move on, but there are many still alive in Oz that lost immediate family in the war. Forgiveness and acceptance of the apology from Abe, yes. Praise of Japanese behaviour during the War, unforgivable utterances by an out of touch fool.


      • Joy Cooper says:

        Yes, I too have met & enjoyed the company of many people from Japan. This does not stop me from shaking my head in bewilderment at who thought it was a good idea for Abbott to say those things. As for the RSL president, he is also a disgrace, pandering to Abbott in that way instead of standing up for his members. Grrr I’m still cranky & appalled!! .

        PS Have just realised why Abbott wears boots instead of business shoes. He hasn’t got Margie to tie his laces up in a pretty bow for him. 🙂


        • deknarf says:

          It seems that Abbott has no understanding (or sympatico) with the feeling of those who went to war with Japan and the losses they suffered. The atrocities committed during that time just added to the pain of loss and the anger.
          The comments are also strategically and politically inept (no, stupid) given that several of our major trading partners (Korea, China) are still trying to get Japan to admit, and apologise for, the atrocities committed in those countries.
          Given that this NO Coaliar government gained power by lying to the voting public, I will be very interested to see what Australia has given away in providing Abbott and his cronies something to crow about!


          • Joy Cooper says:

            Well said, Deknarf. As the Abbott gvt,plus his various ministers are very inept & out of their depth, well & truly, in dealing with far more skilled negotiators (especially Robb), I shudder to think how much of Australia’s best interests have been sold down the river. All for a photo op.


  3. Happy to see you back in the saddle D. Another great post…with teeth!


    • deknarf says:

      Thanks Ed, starting to become increasingly angry with this bunch of fascists we have for a government. Time to up the rhetoric and use like tactics to their I suspect.
