    Any given government wants to have and exercise power. Any given opposition wants to promise to be more open and accountable. Any given minor party wants to sit on the high ground and sing “They’re all the same . . . but we’re not”

    And so it goes.

    I did just learn that a bee’s dick is comparatively enormous – approximately one third the length of it’s entire body.

    It’s manner of use does however closely resemble the Labor party’s more recent efforts to insert itself into the political process:

    “When a male that [the queen] finds satisfactory catches up with her, she allows him to insert his endophallus into her vagina and eject his sperm into her, an act that is accompanied by a “pop” sound that is audible to the human ear as the endophallus literally explodes. The rupture disconnects the drone from the queen, and he falls away to die shortly thereafter.”

    Brandis told Michael Brissendon on RN this morning “You are not a journalist”.

    What a turd!

    And here’s a turd of the same ilk:

    An earlier post of this vid has disappeared from you Tube.
    I think it went feral and had to be put down.

    An Old Russian told me this, so I assume it to be an old Russian saying….

    “Teach a man how to fish, and he’ll still vote for whoever gives him free fish!”

    The 2 Party system has become a snoring bore, they have run out of new phrases to shit-fling at each other, and that’s not what I follow politics to hear anyway. We dont truly have any parties (that I know of anyway) that actually have an interest in running Australia but instead a series of fans of this or that club-of-belief/thought/idealogy. And a handful of tiny standups that want to push the line from their particular pressure group. Hence once we had substantial bodies, now we have ginger groups – the original politician interested and aware of what governance actually is, has long since left the building. We are a rudderless ship and thus subject to the economic whims of FTA’s and countires with a bigger stick than ours. There are, in the dusty dwellings far removed from metropolis, one or two certain citizens currently assembling teams of non aligned independants trying to organise matters for a tilt at parliament to get as many of thesei ndy’s get over the line into a parliamentary seat. It’s a huge and likely vain task but the criteria for standing and having the support of these people include planting firnly the notion that their political representation belongs firmly in the hands of the voting taxpayer. It will be interesting to watch. Meanwhile does anyone want to grab a broom and help me start start at one of their nearest parliament house and sweep the manure from the stable, This sorry lot are yesterday’s news and in no way in touch with what Aussies want in the political stablehouse. Manure removal is a regular task around stables. Who’s up for it?
