Graphical Manipulations #107: Lying, Lying, Lying Toads, The Rat And Other Gross Indecencies!


Ever had that queasy feeling that regardless of that workplace camaraderie, that ‘all pull together’ team spirit, that leveraging the key metrics by maximising our core competencies and pushing the envelope, that your just a minor cog in the wheel and not that valuable team member that you’re told you are? Well, this little snippet of clarification might just expand your mind a tad, courtesy of the Business Dictionary.

CAPITALISM:  Economic system based (to a varying degree) on private ownership of the factors of production (capital, land, and labour) employed in the generation of profits.  It is the oldest and most common of all economic systems and, in general, is synonymous with the free market system.

Particularly impressive is the bit about the “private ownership of the factors of production”, with labour being one of those factors! And you thought you were part of the team, eh?  So, in reality, you’re just a factor of production.  You could be just a chattel slave, a caste slave, a bonded labourer, forced even.  You could be a feudal serf, a military draftee, or, a wage slave!  Thankfully, unless you’re a private owner of the factors of production, you’re a wage slave.  So be grateful that you’re not one of the other slaves, breathe a sigh of relief and get in there and play your part (well until you’re surplus to requirements) as one of, dare I say, Team Australia?

Moving on. Hasn’t it been a ‘ribbetting’ week of politics, if you take Jackie Kelly’s perspective of her former mates?  Finally an insider, now on the outside has let the amphibian out of the bag, so to speak, with the revelation that we have been too afraid to utter.  The Liberals (and probably their Neutered Puppy associates) are actually lying toads – one and all!

Liberal Toad Hall

And given the growing menace of introduced species, apparently many of the current cabinet were not born in Orstralia, well may we say ‘God save the Queen, because the Government is of the cane toad variety.

Lying Toads

Naturally, toad talk made that Bloody Rat rather jealous and he leapt forth to make a comment on the forgetfulness of our Prime Winky Dill.

Roo Loose Rat

Rat was impressed with the overwhelming desire of our Team Australia Government to ensure that national security was a prime excuse when it came to Ebola.

And that, whatever happened, The Supreme Leader was intent on ensuring that there would be mature public debate about the state of the federation when a bucket of money was thrown before State Premiers with a ‘now be nice and share’ request.

Mature Debate Rat

With Rat back in his sewer pipe it was felt that Barnaby Joyce should be recognised for his valuable contribution to ensuring Hansard was up to the mark and providing a factual reportage of the Parliamentary goings on.

Hansard Barnaby

That our Environment Minister should be roundly applauded for performing a double backflip with pike and plie by saying Emissions Trading was the greatest thing since carbon dioxide and then doing the exact opposite several years later.

Cartoon Hunt

When George (trust me, I love you) Brandis calmed the nervous nellies of the terminally ill mainstream media with a plethora of platitudinous linguistic gobbledegook.

Trusty Brandis

Which brought us to consider a little gem of truth from those attempting to justify their actions when finally called to account and which seem relevant to the current state of affairs in our fair country.

Seemed Relevant

And all that lead to thoughts of oppression, fear, mistrust, and dictatorial regimes which led in a totalitarian manner to Supreme Leaders.

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!

    Say, have you noticed that when standing in the right light, young Matthias looks just like young Hermann? Just a passing thought.

      Thanks Edward! Nice to see you back again.
      With regard to our Mathias. ‘Ist einer ze genes herr oberst!!”
      The Aryans appear to possess a particular gene conglomerate which delivers blond hair, a superiority arrogance, and a strong penchant for marching a la goose step! Apparently these genes are dominantly recessive in that they are recessive traits which will never be bred out of the population, especially in Europe! ;-))
