It appears the forthcoming chat-a-thon to secure some ideas for the year 2020 is already causing a disturbance among the female intelligencier. Of the ten selected overlords it appears that only one woman (Kate Blanchett) was invited, and this has upset “the girls”, mind you looking at those selected as team leaders (for want of a better term) I think Im on “the girls” side here. The team leaders are not a very impressive bunch really, on paper that is, however with some luck there should be a few smarties among the proposed 1000 thats yet to be dug-up. But let me put this to you, we are going to have 1000 bright sparks hoping to come up with one or more ideas for the year 2020. These people can see into the future knowing what the economics and life will be like in the year 2020, I bet they can. But let me tell you this, shove this in your perculator and see if it comes out frothy, a man of vision a man still amongst us and was truly a visionery but like all men of vision their ideas are never implemented till its too late. The ideas man in question is one Ernie Bridge, aboriginal, politian, musician and a well respected top Australian bloke. His idea and vision was to pipe water from the Ord to supply Western Australia and possibly other parts of the country also. Had it been implemented it would have been up and running now and farmers and the community in general would be feeling the benfits of it. In the last couple of years Ernie Bridge’s idea has come to the forefront because it was a great idea but now its expensive (as it always was) but you pay for what you get and right now it woould have been the best thing that could have happened to this state and its water supply. So back to the 2020 chat-a-thon whatever ideas they come up with will never come to fruition because the people Ive heard speaking on radio are to personal with their thoughts wants for the future and dont have the community vision like Ernie…………….just my opinion as always.
So here we go again the seach for a 1000 people that can see into the future. A group with the foresight into the year 2020 to recommend how things should be I suppose. I suppose if I was truly on the ball I would have a thousand crystal balls made and offer them for sale to these selected smarties. I can remember when I was on a goverment board in the eighties when one of the members was selected to sit on the 2010 committee and now in 2008 we all know what good they done. School teachers and taxi drivers going on strike this week and hospitals and other services in turmoil and this is Western Australia the richest of the states. So what does it all mean, it means nothing, nothing more than a smokescreen that everything is being taken care of for the future. None of those selected people can predict next week let alone 2020 so whats the point. If Kate Blanchett had known what was going to happen at the oscars she wouldnt have bothered to go there. If Tim Fisher could have seen the future he d still be in politics, even he would shine amongst this opposition. and the rest, well say no more. Its a bloody waste of time money and effort. So these Wizards can get out their crystal balls and look into the future but they dont and wont convince me they are any better qualified than any person you may stop in the street. I personally have a lot of respect for the present Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and I genuinely think he is trying to get the country going but I think this 2020 stuff is a wrong call………………………..
After listening to parliament on Friday and then seeing the disgraceful performance of those that receive a salary to sit in parliament as opposition party for our country, I honestly cant see any hope for the party that calls itself liberal in the near or distant future. The antics where just unbelievable, a few days ago Wilson Tuckey complained that parliament was like a dance hall so he’s gone one better and with the help of his colleagues has turned it into “Play School”. After listening to an explanation on radio featuring messrs Abbott and Tanner it seems the whole fiasco was just a stunt and the card board cut out were at the ready for the day. The electorate has told the “liberals” what they think of them to such a degree that the ex prime not only lost the election but lost his seat also and now cant or wont show his face. So its left to the odd balls hes left behind and true to form they are showing their true worth and value to this country…….Nothing….RIP
Im pretty sure Im right in saying that every computer user that uses YAHOO for whatever reason, emails news chatrooms and search etc are watching with more than some interest whats going to happen if Billy Boy takes it over. One of his spokesman on television stated “if we cant win customers over then we will buy them” sure but what will he do with us. Make us pay no doubt, dish up more of his crappy muck like Vista but incorporate it in a search engine or whatever. You can bet your life we are going to be the losers and will miss YAHOO if they accept his offer, but lets face it Microsoft just doesnt have the class to beat GOOGLE they care only about themselves not us. Theres no doubt in my mind that YAHOO will go when the price is right and it will be a sorry day for us.
At last the deed has been done and apologies made for the stolen generation to the indigenous people of Australia. In my opinion it was by and large what most Australians wanted and apart from whatever occurs in the future regarding compensation etc Im sure the nation as a whole is happy with the days proceedings that took place in the nations parliament. Everyone that is except from some of our polititians that showed their quality or lack of it to the nation on television. I find it difficult to understand why they couldnt accept “the apology” when you think of what is happening to Australia as a whole. Australia is now a multicultural country, that goes without saying, laws have been changed and modified to accomodate the many different religions and customs of new migrants that come to these shores. The acceptance of some of the law changes in schools churches and the courts have often created much debate, anger and argument. But at the end of the day Australians have accepted the new changes to their daily lives. SO, in view of the fact that we have accepted those changes and like it or not are prepared to live with them. I ask the question, what right does a person like Wilson Tuckey and any other of his kind find it difficult to accept the fact that this apology to the tradition owners of this country and the terrible mistreatment they endured. The shame of this is that this man has been part of a government that affected our lives over the past eleven and a half years and is now showing by his/their attitudes their hatred of of the true Australian. They are a disgrace to our nation and our parliament and the sooner they go the better. Follow their old leader and get right out of the public arena…………….Just Piss Off
More golden words from Malcolm Arrogance the 2nd He reckons that all extra taxes that will be collected and create a surplus should be spent on the people it was collected from. What a memory this man has, Smirky Costello amassed 64 Billion dollars and was againts it being spent by the present government. Does this Liberal party now in opposition think we are all morons that have no memories of the awful years they were in govenment, a government that in the last budget gave pensioners a $500 one off payment when everyone else got cuts to increase their spending power to keep up with prices of fuel and food etc. Mr Arrogance is a fraud with no memory or thinks we dont have one so my advice to him is to keep him mouth shut up then he wont keep putting his foot in it Costello was protecting polititians pensions and future superanuation with no thought for ordinary Australians. Australian Liberalism = personal greed
Firstly newspapers……We rely on them supposedly for news, we dont always get it though, we get their version of the truth which is mostly far from the truth. However one thing is for sure, its certainly isnt worth chopping down trees so the newspapers can write and print the shit they do.
Reporters and columnists…. a group of ethicless opinionated people who will say anything to get their stories read regardless of who they hurt or offend.
This leads me to my blog. The latest hurtfull stories being bounded around concerns Heath Ledger. A female columnist with the New York Post has started the latest agony for the Ledger family with her poison reporting which then inspires the those for stories and those against which leads to the prolonging of the sadness and the agony of their sons death. What possible satisfaction could Ms Angrea Peyser get from causing more grief to the family and close friends and how on earth would she know what his thoughts were. As for her comments on his character the words she used “reckless,greedy and selfish” seem to fit her own character exactly. WHY CANT EVERYONE JUST LET THE GUY REST IN PEACE and leave his family daughter and friends to grieve with dignity.
