Your eight cents a day

Nah, no bias or stupidity at the ABC is there?

Bike stuff

Australia's Anthony Gobert - the idiot-savant of the motorcycle racing world - has had another acrimonious departing of ways with a race team.

It has been rumored for a few weeks now that the relationship between Anthony Gobert and the Ducati Austin team was not a harmonious one. Now the well-placed info is that the team and Gobert have split, with a replacement rider being sought by the Texas-based squad.

Gobert - a phenomenal talent but utter headcase - has already been fired by AMA Ducati teams twice, the Suzuki GP team, the MuZ GP team, and had acrimonious walk-outs from Honda Australia, the Kawasaki World Superbike squad, and the AMA Yamaha team.

Gobert has noone to blame but himself. His continually moronic, arrogant behaviour has meant that his results have never matched the drivel that comes out of his mouth. Who could forget his juvenile ramblings in 1997, claiming that world champ Mik Doohan was "scared" of him? (Doohan won all but 3 races that year. Gobert could not manage a single top-5 finish). Yet every year his same tired supporters claim that this time Goey is "coming back hard". The hype begins again, Goey tells everyone he's gonna kick ass, he starts well, then begins to fuck up and blames everyone but himself.

It's time teams stopped employing this moron and give some fresh talent a chance. Gobert has blown it. Let him suffer for it.

Japanese Turkeys

Suzuki's GSV-R
Kawasaki's ZX-RR

The new four-stroke era in Motorcycle Grand Prix has been little short of a disaster for Kawasaki and Suzuki.

When the 4-strokes were introduced last year, Honda's stunning RC211V v-5 blew everything else to the weeds. Yamaha's bike managed (eventually) to win a couple of races in the hands of Max Biaggi, but were left trailing far behind in most races.

Yet even Yamaha's poor year was a spectacular success compared to Suzuki & Kawasaki's GP efforts.

Even in it's second season, the V4 Suzuki - apart from being the ugliest machine in the field - is barely scraping into the top ten. Other than their brief moment of glory in 2000, Suzuki's GP and Superbike teams have been a joke for over a decade, with ill-handling and underpowered machines.

This can't being doing Suzuki's image much good. The stunning new Ducati - which has been faster than all bikes but the Hondas this year - not only looks beautiful, but has been getting amazing results right out of the box. This does wonders for the Ducati reputation and badge with the general public. Yet Suzukis are seen as ugly pieces of unrideable junk. Not a good way to spend millions of dollars, fellas.

It's worse still for Kawasaki, who, despite millions of dollars and two superb riders, regularly have their ZX-RR machine hover around 20th place. As with their unsuccessful ZX7 in the World Superbike series, the ZXRR apparently produces plenty of power but is limited by a primitive chassis which makes the bike nearly unrideable.

I can't see Kawasaki being competitive any time soon. The Big K's bike division simply has never been able to produce race machinery good enough to consistently compete with the other manufacturers.

Kawasaki and Suzuki urgently need some new blood in their race departments, or they're going to be spending millions getting their arse kicked for a long, long time to come.

Our peace-loving Greens defend Hezbollah

Given the generally psychotic nature of our green movement, this comes as no surprise.

The Australian parliament is debating legislation to amend the criminal code and ban the Lebanese-based Hezbollah (Party of God) as a terrorist organisation. This means that any Australian resident raising funds or supporting the organisation in any way faces prosecution.

Attorney-General Darryl Williams cited the unsubstantiated and spurious allegation that Hezbollah poses a direct and immediate threat to Australia, simply because it has “the capacity to carry out a terrorist attack anywhere in the world”.

Hezbollah, which has 12 members in the Lebanese parliament, is a Shiite-based Islamist organisation which has been a major provider of social services to thousands of poor Lebanese Shiites. Formed in 1982, it waged an armed resistance against Israel's illegal post-1978 occupation of southern Lebanon, finally forcing an Israeli withdrawal in 2000.


The banning of Hezbollah will no doubt fuel the further stigmatisation and racist scapegoating of Australia's Lebanese Muslim community.

No really, they actually said all this.

What is it with nut-job lefties and The Matrix?

Morpheus could learn a thing or two about rambling, philosophical waffle from The Green Left Weekly. They must love talking about it, coz they already reviewed it. And let's not forget Richard Neville's bizzaroid essay.

UPDATE: oh lordy, now the theologians are getting in on this crapola.

Today's idiots

From the weasels at the Sydney Morning Herald letters section. We start with this howler:

Does the campaign to unseat Simon Crean have anything to do with the Americans? Now that Australia is examining proposals for US bases there is no doubt the US Government has an interest in the ALP leadership and our alternative prime minister. Neither do I have any doubt that the Australian people will not want US bases in Australia. Thank God Simon has the numbers.

April Pressler, Naremburn, June 13.

It's always a good time for another raving hate-USA conspiracy theory.

And more lefty promises of Armageddon if Labor isn't returned to power:

At this point I would be willing to vote for Con the Fruiterer - anything to get John Howard out and stop the destruction of this country.

Give Simon a chance - it's our only chance.

Debby O'Brien, Armidale, June 13.

Yeah, all that higher employment and better economic management is killing us man.

And another recitation of the left's favourite lie:

Now, because of his actions we are terrorist targets, and because we are targets he can justify forcing anti-terrorist bills through the Senate.

These bills would greatly limit our democratic freedoms in criticising his government.

Grahame Wilson, Lane Cove, June 13.

Newsflash dickhead, we were terrorist targets before the war.

Yeesh. I'd hate to get stuck in an elevator with this lot.

When a Meat Head cries

Slack-jawed troglodyte seeks a spine. Can you help?

Mark Latham - Labor's loudmouth glass-jawed wimp - delivered another of his moronic speeches which is making the lefty crowd's hearts go pitty-pat.

He's pretty much recycled his usual humbug:

In international affairs, we don't want a world in which one country has all the power. We want Australia to have an independent foreign policy, not one contracted out to Washington.

In Labor parlance, this is code for A) signing away our sovereignty to the UN, and B) kissing the ass of Jacques Chirac and Dr. Mahatir.

On the environment, we want to ratify the Kyoto Protocol

I thought you were about an independent Australia? And you hope to achieve this by crippling our economic growth at the say-so of junk scientists? To Labor, Australia's well-being plays second fiddle to the decisions of really important international committees.

If the push against our Leader were to succeed, it would set a shocking precedent. This long campaign of leaking, backgrounding and sabotage would be legitimised within the ALP. This is not the Labor way.

*choke*splutter*.... oh no, not the Labor way, nah.

Not like branch-stacking, brawls, throwing out successful Prime Ministers.

For many years it has been said that the factions are no longer a good guide to the big debates within the Party. I think this is true. The new divide is between the True Believers (those who want modern Labor to stand up and fight for our policy beliefs) and the Machine Men, with their over-reliance on polls, spin doctors, the daily media cycle and a command-and-control style of politics.

Those damned machine-men, actually paying attention to public opinion, the bastards.

My favourite moment in Meat-Head's speech is when the big hypocrite baby contradicts himself with this paragraph:

Howard's record on democratic reform is just as bad. It's another one-man-band. No independent Speaker of the House of Representatives. No reform of the parliament and its committee system. No community cabinets or public consultation. No experiments with Internet democracy or deliberative democracy. And no Republic, let alone a democratically elected (that is, directly elected) Australian President.

Let's not forget, this was the Prime Minister who single-handedly tried to write the preamble to the Australian Constitution. He wants an Australia in his own image and the political power to make it happen. In truth, Howard doesn't trust the Australian people. That's why he never involves the public in the decisions of his government. He's for the powerful, not the people.

You snivelling hypocrite fucktard. You attack Howard for lack of reform, then in the next paragraph you rant against him for doing just that in writing a constitutional preamble.

Worse, you wail about Howard "not trusting the people", yet you blame him for the lack of a republlic, which was rejected by Australian voters in a referendum. Voters, you remember those don't you, dickcheese? Howard put the republic issue through the democratic process, and you lost. Just like you lost the last three elections. You don't seem too keen on the democratic process when your little ideological bowel movements are rejected by the public. Instead you whinge about powerful elites and our evil authoritarian PM.

Whenever Latham's crowd goes to a popular vote, they get their arse kicked. So Latham - the big pansy - cries foul.

Mike Carlton defends Hillary's honour

Now that mikey-boy can no longer sing the praises of Robert "KKK" Byrd, he's mounting this pathetically outraged defence of Hillary Clinton.

I'd love to see this dopestick go up against Christopher Hitchens on this issue.
