Cynic (say sin-ik) noun a person who believes that people’s reasons for doing things are selfish, bad, or for ulterior motives and shows this by sneering at them. Cynical adjective, cynically adverb, cynicism noun (Thanks Oxford).
I’ve never been one for self diagnosis but have been concerned for some time that I was beginning to mistrust the motives of the Team Australia Captain and the rest of his Main Team Australia as compared to the Rabble Team Australia (that’s the one’s who do all the menial work). Whenever I heard a statement or claim about a budget emergency, or a Jihadi threat, or a recalcitrant senate, or not exactly a war but a humanitarian destruction of antihumanitarianists I’d yell “moo poo” at the television or pour coffee on the newspaper, or initiate some other act of derisory behaviour like swearing at the radio. Such behaviour was not only distressing to myself, but becoming an increasing burden to those who orbit around my little world of angst. So we took ourselves onto the web and entered the great cloud of information residing thereon and Google searched the manifestation descriptors of my apparent malady. Sure enough back came the diagnosis that I was a cynic, was displaying the characteristics of cynicism and that there was, alas, no cure. However, while there is no cure for my malady, we do know who to blame for it – don’t we? Hmmmmm?
I do however feel that as a confirmed cynic I must refute the comment that I’m sneering. I’m more inclined to believe that I’m jaundiced, sardonic, sceptical, scoffing or just plain suspicious. Judge for yourself!
As you often find when rummaging, graphics appear that, while dealing with elsewhere, are so bloody applicable to ‘dealings Australiana!’
It was nice to see that our current Government led by the Team Australia Captain was ensuring that the voters in their electorates were being favourably treated by their policy machinations.
That moves were afoot to ensure that outsider (anyone not in Team Australia) hate – speakers would not be allowed to enter the country. Some, by virtue of being in the country as well as in Team Australia, are excluded from such foot shuffling moves.
It’s always nice to know that the long, dark and dank tunnel we entered in September 2013 has a light at the end of it!
Tunnels, darkness, and a goodly bit of dank drew The Bloody Rat out with his insightful take on things humanly idiosyncratic. He found Greg Hunt delightfully obfuscatory.
Took serious issue with OECD claims that Canberra was the best of all possible places in the best of all possible worlds (sorry Dr Pangloss)
Rat was particularly impressed with the hyperbolic propagandistic, photo opportunistic conveniently arranged photography of “that sword of the apocalypse” featured in the recent Jihadist terror raids which all amounted to nought really.
He was also impressed with Team Australia Captain’s excellent flippity floppity backflip with pike with regard to Vlad the Impaler Putin, especially when he floppity flippity flipped back with a gut wrenching “shirtfront” threat to our Vlad (that’ll be a feature next week).
Dispensing with The Rat and returning to the sceptically jaundiced world of the confirmed cynic we grudgingly acknowledge the release of the latest NO Coalition doormats. At discounted prices no less!
We felt that this little song more aptly describes the intentions of the Prime Winky Dill aka the Team Australia Captain aka The Great Commander.
And that this Graphical Manipulation aptly describes how this confirmed cynic feels about this self-serving, uncaring Liberal/National Party coalition Government.
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!
