SIMON CREAN'S address
to the nation was unimpressive and underwhelming. For a start, his tone
evoked childrens stories on Play School. Not a good start.
Go read the rest of Gareth Parker's take on our national disgrace of an opposition leader's address to the nation.
Crean and the Labor party are a threat to this nations security. By sniping at our most important ally while hypocritically jumping at every whim of the corrupt and cretinous UN, Crean is morally unfit to lead this nation at any time in the future.
If you're religious,
pray that these idiot bastards are kept out of office for as long as possible.
If you're reading this from outside Australia, then lend us a prayer too.
Oh yeah, all that fierce resistance the Iraqis were going to put up, the mass attacks worldwide by fearsome terrorist cells, the mass slaughter of civilians, the huge uprising in Arab street, the millions of refugees that were going to flee and die in the desert.
None of this has happened. Iraqi soldiers are surrendering by the thousand, no carpet bombing of civilians, no terrorist strikes. The Iraqi's have lost their port city, their western airbases, and the Iraqis are impotent in the north. And if we're lucky, Saddam may be seriously injured or dead.
All going swimmingly so far. Oh, and take a look at these great pictures.
A word of introduction for my overseas readers: Michael Leunig is a new-age, touchy-feely leftist cartoonist and "philosopher" who's always drawing godwful cartoons complaining about the horrors of modern life. Really, really deep stuff like this. He also once told us that we should "find a place in our hearts for the humanity of Osama bin Laden" - along with his Dec.25 message that Christmas "is a family day and Osama is our relative".
In today's Age, Mikey-boy shares some emotive..."poetry": Reflections on the war moon. It's the same waffling, emotive writing style we see from other leftists kooks like Richard Neville and Jean Baudrillard: dramatic, poetic rhetorical waffle which sounds like it's arguing about something, but which is merely some loud echoes from an empty mind.
It seems evil Dubya now has no limits: he's conscripted the moon into his butchery!!! Personally, I'd be more worried about how he managed to transport all those paddocks and bushes into the Iraqi desert.
Yes, the foreign minister is courteous to journalists. Quick, somebody alert Margot!
So, less civilian casualties might be seen as a good thing? What, really????
Sure Mikey, that must explain all the anti-war sentiment that exists. Don't ya just love leftists? Any opinions that differ from theirs are the result of wicked right-wing indoctrination.
Really? The Japanese and Germans - once the world's greatest war addicts - don't seem too keen on getting another "hit". Getting your ass kicked can have that effect.
This gets my early nomination for Most Meaningless Paragraph of 2003
Sounds like the hate-the-sin, love-the-sinner "support" offered to gays by people like Fred Nile. The compassion of contempt. What a guy.
This is about the level of infantile war psychobabble we get from peacenicks. Drum sounds?. You know of an army that still carries drums into battle?.
It's the elected government, not the military, who makes the decisions to send people to war, you idiot. Democracy, remember? Yes we know it's a frightening concept, but the rest of us got over your Soviet-utopian model a long time ago.
Fancy people wanting to win a war. How unenlightened of them. Only through being defeated can we find our souls again!
Ten bucks to anyone who can understand what he just wrote.
Emotional, dramatic, nonsensical. Illustrating his points has never been Leunig's strong suit.
Oh my goodness, how terrible: torture might give the impression that Saddam is a psychotic shit and should be overthrown. Whatever happened to objectvity? Is noone considering Saddam's feelings in this?
And now, for possibly the most appalling display of leftist-sociopath moral equivalency we've seen in a while;
Further comment unnecessary....
.....would be a quick
and total victory with a minimum of casualties and the installation of
a democratic government friendly to Americans. Deep down, I think the
hate-america crowd would be quietly happy with lots of dead civilians:
it would provide fuel for their sociopathic rage.
I love motorcycles, but I hate cruisers. I took my bike in for a service today and they loaned me a Vulcan 800 for the day. I was reminded why I hate cruisers so much. I have nothing in particular against the Kawasaki Vulcan 800 (I'd rather own a Vulcan than a Harley anyday), it's just one representative of it's useless breed.
Why do people love these soggy, heavy, uncomfortable, underpowered lumps of shit? Draw up a list of what motorcycles should do, and the cruiser fails on pretty much every count.
They're tolerable bikes provided 100% of your riding is on long, straight highways. The throb of the v-twin and the ride position are great if your idea of fun is riding in an endless straight line. Personally, I'd rather watch paint dry.
These things just cannot go around corners: the soggy suspension wobbles around wildly, the footpegs scrape at any angle other than full vertical, and the tank-like weight wants to make the bike hit the tarmac.
I remember passing a bunch of tough-boy Harley riders in the twisty stuff near Bateman's Bay. Their attempts to keep up were laughable: those throttles sure made a lot of noise when opened, but they sure don't produce anything resembling speed, and my granny on a bicycle could have beat them around corners, which they had to crawl around.
The brakes are usually crap, the instrumentation & general design stupid, they have no top-end power, little luggage capacity and poor wind/weather protection.
Which brings me to the great motorcycle myth: that cruisers are "comfortable". What a load of ass. The seats are terrible, the suspension and ride position transfer all those bumps directly up your spine, the ludicrous vibration is irritating beyond belief and your upright torso acts as a wind sock.
If this is motorcycling,
give me a bicycle any day.
...they always leave slime in their tracks, or in Guardian creepoid Matthew Engel's case, his latest column, in which he reckons Iraqis are better off under Saddam than the US constitution.
Couldn't let this latest Webdiary nugget pass without comment:
Lost our friends? Who were they exactly Margot?
And "the goodwill and protection of the United Nations"??? BWAHAHA. Lordy, we won't be "protected" by the UN anymore...what a loss.
Further on, Margot graduates from nutty to nauseating;
Yep, the teenagers who will die in the next Kuta were just asking for it. Mind you, this is what she said about Kuta.
And now for some tired lefty lies;
Here cometh the bullshit...
Care to give specifics Margot? The signing of massive trade deals with the Chinese? Bringing democracy to East Timor? (as opposed to Keating's "visonary" defence ties with the Jakarta junta). And Howard actually got that Australia-hating windbag Mahatir to visit.
I guess Howard might have walked away from it, if anyone could explain what the hell "international architecture" was. Maybe it was Keating's love for Papa Suharto, that being - you know - visionary leadership and all.
Leftist lies never
die, they just grow mouldier.
Leftist crackpot writer george Monbiot - as part of his endless crusade to prove the evils of democratic capitalism - is now blaming African starvation on the western warmongers. All guns, no butter, blah blah blah.
No mention - of course - of the fact that most of that continent is run by cro-magnon despots who are busy murdering or starving their people.
Whassa matter George? Never heard of Robert Mugabe? Funny how western aid is only getting to his ZANU-PF cronies. And there's lots of other stuff going on which doesn't seem to have much to do with racist whiteys in the west.
What's wrong George? Cat got your tongue?
We can expect Monbiot
to comment on the Zimbabwe crisis once he figures out a way to blame the
whole thing on Americans.
Guardian dingbat Zoe Williams, gives us this clanger;
of people worldwide are clamouring for this as we speak.
...that's what peacenick Helen Caldicott is doing. Check out this jabbering-psycho-speech she gave at some womens' anti-war conference.
The speech was basically: men are psychos, Americans are psychos, the Americans want to exterminate the planet, and naked protest will end the nuclear age.
You'll also notice
plenty of examples of the trademark of leftist hysteria: TYPING IN UPPER
Italian rider Loris Capirossi has set the fastest time at the pre-season MotoGP test at Catalunya.
This is a stunning psychological victory for Ducati, taking their beautiful but brand new 4-stroke V4 bike out to the first all-team test and coming out on top of the seemingly invincible Hondas, not to mention the other Japanese manufacturers, who have been well and truly humbled.
The Dukes did show signs of promise in their early tests, but to come out on top of the time sheets and set the fastest top speed is simply astonishing.
Ducati will win races this year. You can count on it.
Meanwhile, Suzuki and Kawasaki continue their humiliating slowness, running consistently 2-3 seconds per lap slower than the fastest bikes. These folks had their bikes built & racing last season, yet Ducati builds a bike which obliterates them straight out of the box.
One thing is for sure:
this is going to be one hell of a GP season.......
Had a nice restful
long weekend, hence the lack of bloggage. I'm back now. Lots of e-mail
to be answered still. I'm getting to it.
