Graphical Manipulations #110: Monkeys, Resurrection, Ratifications, Toadery, Pillocking And Word Abuse!


I guess by now readers of these Graphical Manipulations, and other articles on this blog, have come to the realisation that the author has a predilection towards socialism – SHOCK! HORROR!  Not really far leftish, but more centralist with a “no way could I EVER vote Liberal” preference – especially while the Liberals and their associated Neutered Puppies Party continue down their extremist neo-conservative, rape and pillage capitalistic “stuff the equity, full steam ahead” grubby little journey down the Conservative American pathway to social inequity, lack of opportunity for the unrich and a predatory capitalist self interest!!

There was a whole bit here about equity and equality and about naïve idealism but I deleted it since I figured that I’d be talking to the converted, or antagonising ultra-conservative crackpots!  And I went on to consider this ▼

Abbott Joke A

I wondered why people support those who lie to them, and also fail to hold them to account when they get the opportunity to do so.

It’s becoming clearer as we understand genetics and the working of the mind that we appear to be genetically predestined to be Conservative or, in the true sense of the word, Liberal.  So much for freedom of thought and action, eh?  However, I suspect it’s not quite as simple as that and that aspects of nurture, as well as having the ability to think critically, examine issues rationally and question and challenge dogma also play a substantial role.  That’s one of the reasons why I consider that everyone should have the best opportunity for a quality education, without having to pay for it, as a fundamental obligation of any quality democracy to its people.

And that’s why, unless we see a Centralist Party attuned to People, Country and then the Economy, I’ll continue to vote to the Left of Centre.  And YOU know what that means, don’t you?

Naturally, thinking about all this extremism, conservatism and lying led to questions of credibility.

Credible Bishop Monkey

And to the rise of extremist politics even weirder than the ultra-conservative myopia inhabiting the Government benches at the moment.

Hansons Back

Let loose the Monkeys and the froot-loops and you have to suffer That Bloody Rat and his perspective on modern Australia.

He was extremely sympathetic to Gina Rhinehart’s trials and tribulations suffered under the harassment of her ‘greedy little grub’ children.  Her thoughts, not mine!

Rhinehart Rat

Was immensely amused by Barnaby Joyce stuffing it up again and forgetting to blame Labor for everything not good happening in Australia, especially that related to his own portfolio.

Barnaby Blame Rat

And deeply concerned that the issue as to the shape of the earth had been sneakily introduced into the Global Warming debate, thereby creating an opportunity for the “Round Worlders” to push their fanatical anti-flat world dogma – AGAIN!

Flat Earth Rat

The Rat’s tirade woke the Toads who felt that they should also add some value to the proceedings, especially about that turncoat Jacqui Lambie

Jacquis Deliverance Toad

And to the contextual implications of politicians making promissory statements on the main stream media which Joe Public seems to have taken at face value.

No Cuts Toad

It was felt that only a Pillock would be so stupid as to make a comment on a medium which has the capability for endless replays, retweets, etc, etc.  And sure enough there was one.

China Democracy Pillock

And you’d have to wonder who might confuse a twinky little Australian state with a country 106 times larger.  Well?  Yep! You guessed it – our favourite pillock.

Tas China Pillock

Finally, all that monkey business, rats, toads, Pillocks and lies led to thoughts about word abuse.  Don’t ask me why.  And that led to this.

Dictionary Abbott

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!

      I was one of the fortunate who benefited from Gough making the higher education system available to all who desired to ‘give it a go’!
      The fundamental responsibilities of any good democratic government is to provide the best in support for the people in adversity, quality, affordable medicine, and quality affordable education for everyone.
      This atrocious Lieberal/Neutered Puppy government is intent on destroying everything related to social equity in this country and turning Australia into a mirror of everything that is revolting about the American predator capitalist system.
      Am I pissed off — you bloody betcha!!

      Abbott, his Lieberals and their Neutered Puppy partners must be the most retrograde, extremist right wing government we’ve ever had!
      Let’s hope that those swinging voters who voted LNP at the last election wake up to the damage they have done to this country and to the future of their children.

        We can only, desperately, hope so but I fear many of them remain selfishly blinkered & blindly stupid. They still have the same complicit MSM they believed doing the same as they did when the vile Abbott was LOTO. It’s a disgrace. 😦

            The closing down of many of ABC’s rural & regional radio stations, plus other facilities & programmes, will certainly make many National voters think (if that’s possible). If they make a protest vote it will just go to conservative independents who are, mostly, failed pre-selection-Nat-would-be candidates. The Jones/Bolt/Murdoch demograph idiot voters couldn’t care less about the ABC as they think it’s a leftist conspriracy. These are the fools who blindly vote against their own best interests.

            Apart from online Guardian and other o/s news sources read SMH and The Saturday Paper. Don’t read any of the Murdoch propaganda rags anymore. Partly on principle and mostly on their one sided presentation of the news — usually dictated by Murdoch! Apart from the weekend SMH and TSP most of my reading of news is done online these days!

            I am of the view, that apart from membership fees, political parties should not receive any donations and, that the taxpayer should fund elections with individual payments to each of those going for election according to the legal requirements of the Electoral Office. Parties can pool their funds taxpayer allocated funds if they wish. Still a half-baked concept at this point but we need to get expectation donations out of the democratic process!

            Agree. The current campaign funding regulations in NSW are very restrictive, especially with regards to developers, hotels, clubs & gambling interests’ donations being banned, & the Baird government is trying to change them to favour the Libs & penalise Labor. Dirty politics.

            In NSW even volunteering for a political party’s campaign is counted as a ‘donation’ & comes off any $$ amount you may wish to donate. It is believed the Libs will find ways to get around this yet again.
