Well! Well! Well! It seems that we can pat ourselves on the back, or on the head if you want to be more demeaning! While our economy may be heading at full speed towards a train wreck, our unemployment rate experiencing strong growth and our budget deficit looking like an over-inflated balloon, we are at least heading in the right direction with regard to one objective of our beloved Team Australia, “have a go” (ya mug) Lieberal/Neutered Puppy Government. The numbers are in, the boxes have been crossed and we can say with a great deal of pleasure that we have achieved 92.86% of our ultimate goal! Yes fellow Australians we are nearly there! We just need to ensure that our elections from this point on are fraudulent (remember those good ole Jo Bjelke days?) and we will have achieved the desired objective making our nation comparable to Italy, Spain, Indonesia, Chile and Germany (albeit from a few decades ago). So keep up the good work, and get in a bit more practice in the areas of marching up and down and singing rousing nationalist songs. Onya!!
And here’s the scoreboard for your erudition and encouragement.
The toads were concerned that “Bold Plan Afghanistan” wasn’t quite shaping up to the desired outcome proposed by our leaders who seem to have forgotten the lessons learnt by the Russian in the same place and by the U.S. and others in places like Vietnam, Iraq, Iraq and Iraq. Oh! And Syria!
Our cynical rat felt vindicated when News Corp showed that one should never let the facts get in the way of a demonising news story knowing full well that at least somewhere (certainly not in Murdoch trashpapers) the truth will out.
Rattus politicus felt confident that the voters of Australia would entrust Minister Dutton to only use denationalisation of citizens in the most extreme situations like fighting for terrorist groups, protesting over government policies, voting other than directed. You know! The really serious stuff that prevents a government from doing what it wants to – without interference.
And that Bloody Rat got himself into a bit of a quandary with Tony Rabbott’s expositional logic on the superannuation debate and the true meaning of “people’s money”.
He was a bit disturbed, but at the same time thankful that he wasn’t dependent on Government benefits, that he might have to gain some skills in flatpacks and allen key manipulation, especially as he was particularly paw in the manual dexterity area.
Rat was also most impressed with Kev (The Hawk) Andrews and his willingness to send our military into Chinese restricted air zones at the drop of one of Tony’s “Have a go!” directives.
And Daffy felt that Kevin was truly deserving of the National “Slap An Idiot I Know” award for the day. Well done Kev!
And penultimately our Erudite Rat thought that a quotation, suitably mangled, would provide us with a more clarified view of our present Federal Government.
Which led ultimately to thoughts about leadership and, sadly, to the lack of it!
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! We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!
