Taking the Piss

Shane with some crops
G'day Possums,

What a fortnight it's been ...from boys having a beer and taking the piss to realizing there's nothing much left to sell which make governance a bit tricky and way beyond the limited talents of the ruling rabble.... 
although the burrow's tomato crop has been a you-beaut-bonzer one.





After having a Piss-up with Timmy the Twat and ex crusader Handie Andie Hastie about marriage equality, the Bible Society and SA brewer, Coopers came to a sudden enlightened decision that bible quotes on beer bottles and two right-wing Muppets replaying  a stilted script from the 50's was bad for business.
Frankly, any business that has anything to do with the insanity that emanates from the IPA circus is probably on a course to bankruptcy anyway.



A Federal Court judge has whacked the ABCC in court after they attempted to prosecute two CFMEU officials for having a cup of tea! "A terrible waste of everybody's time."
Bloody unionists, always wanting cups of tea and then always taking the piss!


The South Australian Government has announced it will spend more than $500 million to build a new gas-fired power plant and Australia's largest battery as it moves to secure the state's energy supplies.
Minister for Coal and Besmirching the environment, Fiction's Frydenberg spluttered, then steamed into action chugging words to the effect of, "What a silly idea Jay, when we have all this clean coal with which to burn a hole in the Barrier Reef ."
What Fictions said in code was ,"We are shitting ourselves because this unilateral action by Weatherill only makes clear to the public the extent of the policy vacuum we ruling rabble exist in."
Later that week both Weatherill and Fictions were at the same party allegedly  to celebrate a small battery storage and solar plant and  where the SA premier took the opportunity and "called-out" Fictions for the hypocrite he is and how pissed-off he is with  the ruling rabble for being the lying incompetents they are.

Truth in politics... a rare moment.

The other side of the coin was being well demonstrated by a real RWNJ in the form of Daisy Cousens. The ruling rabble  princess was writing in truly tasteless fashion (not once but twice, apparently her home-work essay had to be re-worked) gushing about herself trembling and oozing over a dead cartoonist she had  met but once and managing to confuse eulogy with mawkish, egotistical preening.
Post truth ? Nahh ....Post taste!

Labor gave George Brandis another deadline to hand over his diary, again threatening him with new legal action.
The Pretend Attorney general says there has been ‘no non-compliance’ and Administrative Appeals Tribunal did not order him to release diary..(so, there, Piss off!) but at the very last moment eventually  does hand them over, only they reveal precisely nothing except Brandis' overweening arrogance and stupidity. And probably, that he is very lazy?
Minister-turned-lobbyist, the double-dipping Ian Chainsaw Macfarlane, taking the piss, says mines need protection from native title and urges MPs to pass legislation to protect land use agreements as Indigenous leaders call for consultation.... poor miners, always being attacked as a minority.


 "What is it that they want to say, that they cannot say now?" 
Well Truffles, why do you want to on piss on the International day for the elimination of racial discrimination, Harmony Day and change18C?
 In Victorian Law there was a case which revolved around the definition of harassment and it came down to its use for only one instance and not repeatedly. Which seems to me, by weakening 18C as they are doing, it will make it easier for people to bring frivolous cases to such an extent that the ruling rabble will then say that 18C is a mess and we should dump it completely.
Standard Ruling Rabble tactics.
The Ugly American's propaganda sheet The Australian, ran Murdoch's deliriously Orwellian line that Truffles in this fascist endeavour to gut 18C had nailed his colours to the mast and was more of a hero than Jeanne d'Arc at Orleans or Baden Powell at Mafeking.
Which only proves that the vote barometer must be indicating a tendency toward electoral annihilation.
Further to this cause of "The Right to be a Bogan," An Indigenous group has been barred from giving evidence to a Senate inquiry into the government's changes to race-hate laws.
Labor and Greens wanted the Aboriginal Legal Service to give evidence into changes to the Racial Discrimination Act and the way in which the Australian Human Rights Commission handles complaints.
But committee chairman, Ruling Rabble senator Ian Macdonald, (remember him? He's the misogynist who gives rude comment to Gillian Triggs and has 40 houses negatively geared?) refused to allow the service to offer its thoughts on the legislation, which was only released this week.
Macca said he would not allow it because "once you start having one group of any type, in this case an Indigenous group, who have a particular view, do you call other members of that same group that might have a different view?"
"I think it was for that reason we decided to restrict it to the ones we have (on the witness list)"
Ahh, Democracy, Ahhh.... Free Speech!   Ahh, senator Macdonald ...you Neanderthal!

“The government’s refusal to accept the advice of its own Climate Change Authority, despite wide support for that advice from business, environmental groups and the community as a whole, reflects the comprehensive failure of its policies on energy and the environment,” Quiggin said, accusing the government of being beholden to rightwing, anti-science “extremists” in its own party and in the media. “These failures can be traced, in large measure, to the fact that the government is beholden to rightwing anti-science activists in its own ranks and in the media. Rather than resist these extremists, the Turnbull government has chosen to treat the vital issues of climate change and energy security as an opportunity for political point-scoring and culture war rhetoric. ”Quiggen  also said his immediate reason for resigning was the government’s failure to respond to the authority’s third report of the special review into potential climate policies, which the government had requested and which it was legally required to respond to. “The government has already indicated that it will reject the key recommendations of the review, particularly the introduction of an emissions intensity scheme for the electricity industry. ”Quiggin said he didn’t believe there was anything to be gained “by giving objective advice based on science and economic analysis to a government dominated by elements hostile to both science and economics”.

To add further to the "piss-take" that are this ruling rabble's achievements, Truffles has announced with Henry Lawson-like nationalist rhetoric that we really will go back to the 50's.... and re-develop the Snowy Mountain scheme to create electricity. Well.... we'll have a study done he said, and it might take up the 10 years and it will only cost $2,000,000,000,000.00 for the study.
 All said whilst hiding the results of studies done on the same idea over the past twenty years and the fact that the energy crisis they have created is now, not in 10 years time.

If it's as good as his NBN we'd be better off buying candles!

We're almost there.... at the bottom, that is,
Hoo-roo petals,

Shane.
