Bad news abounds here and in the US. Fires, train wrecks, the shuttle gone.
Displaying all the intellect and wit of a lifelong loony-asylum inmate, Richard Neville gives us his new essay: Get'n ready for a good ole Texan BBQ.
Subtle huh? I liked
the section equating sanctions with weapons of mass destruction.
The predictable yelping about lack of reasoned debate is in evidence. Kinda strange from a gal who decided to spread a load of neo-socialist, hate-filled cliches about America, painting that nation as a bunch of stupid, world-hating bloodthirsty cowboys.
For gawd's sake Karen, grow up.
mmmmmmkay.... Aussies are all leftist nuts like Karen and we're all rednecks? What is this guy smoking?
Moreover, if we were all "like Karen", it seems likely that a> Karen would have got more then 4.8% of the vote in her electorate, b> her leftist party wouldn't be plummeting into political oblivion, and c> non-leftist "exceptions" like Tim Blair wouldn't have have won the last three federal elections.
Having some knowledge
of the subject at hand can work such wonders......
The screeching from the Pro-tyrant peacenick brigade grows louder and ever more hysterical.
Take this classic from the Sydney Morning Herald's webdiary section: Karen Jackson - a member of the Australian Democrats (stop giggling) - has written down ten reasons to be an Anti-American. In it, she displays all the penetrating intellectual insights that make the Australian Democrats the mighty force they are today.
Here she goes......
Welcome to the psycho-left's idea of "real" democracy: people being forced to vote. Well, it worked for Saddam and Castro.
Well, yes. Real World 101 begins here kiddies.
No, then again noone said it did. What point are you making, arseclown?
You will notice the lack of specifics here.
Which means they currently enjoy a higher standard of living than the people actually living in Cuba (not that you'll ever hear any concern about them from the pro-tyrant left). Not bad for prisoners of war.
First off, why would that make you an anti-american? Their gun laws don't affect us, honey. Besides, Canadians own lots of guns too, and their murder rate is lower. And Britain seems to be having some problems with violence right now, despite progressive-thinking anti-gun legislation.
Not really, then again, it's more freedom than you'll get in an awful lot of countries that you seem to approve of. You know, like muslim and communist ones.
Is it? Go read up on the concepts of Sharia Law and Ummah. Idiot.
No, Ms. Goebbels, advocating the extermination of jews and homosexuals doesn't have anything to do with "America's hypocrisy". Seeking the establishment of a one-world muslim government doesn't either. Nor does blowing up a nightclub full of young holiday makers in Bali. Nor does wrapping women in Burquas and treating them as cattle.
At last, a legitimate point.
Then again, I could treat this idea a lot more seriously if the likes of Jackson actually spent time criticising regimes that commit genocide themselves. And they do it for fun. At the very least the USA supported creeps like Pinochet to prevent something every more horrid (and I'd take Chile over Cuba any day).
But don't wait for any anti-North Korea/USSR/Castro tirades from these bleating hypocrites. This crowd are quite happy to ignore human rights issues where atrocities are commited by politically correct dictators.
Yes, but it's the same in lots of other countries. And how amusing it is to see a member of the Australian Democrats complaining of too many trade barriers.
Hypocrisy? What hypocrisy?
Yeah, because we've seen how tough and effective the UN was in Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and how it's steely determination disarmed Saddam.
The UN: the geopolitical equivalent of being slapped in the face with a wet lettuce.
I thought you said the UN wasn't impotent? And they can't even enforce resolutions on a tiny country like Israel?
And fancy the USA supporting the only democratic regime in a continent that wants to exterminate them. The mind of the leftist is a true moral abyss.
Not signing Kyoto vs. genocide. Hmmm.....no moral equivalency to see here folks....
Not that mindless generalisations from Australian Democrats are ever ignorant or arrogant.
Well, except for the thousands of Americans who donated money, you stupid assfuck.
Note the lack of a quotation to back this up. Is this baseless bilge the best you tyrant-loving twats can come up with?
As we've seen Ms. Jackson, you don't seem to be in any position to preach on this issue. And why should this make us anti-american? Exactly how much knowledge do you think people in China, Ghana, Mongolia and Sudan have about the rest of the world? They seem to know even less, but of course, not being Americans, they are the good guys.
Sure they have problems. Then again, why is it that the USA has the world's best universities and doctors? Why do people fly to the USA to have operations? Is it because they're the worst in these areas?
Yeah, they've got soooo much to learn from the friendly North Koreans and The Middle East in this area. No problems of health or education in those countries.
Of course, you tyrant-tolerant "peace" folk don't apply your moralistic standards to non-western nations, do you?
Third world nations who are the worst polluters didn't sign up to Kyoto either, but you don't hate them, do you? of course you don't, they're not Amerikkkans. Funny too, you didn't mention that the USA is a much cleaner, greener place than those shitholes of enlightened non-capitalist ideals.
Says who? Well, I guess that's why they've invaded oil-rich Canada. Wait... they haven't have they? Dammit, isn't this supposed to be all about oiiiiiiil??
Right. If those evil Americans recycled more, there would be no muslim tyrants, no islamic terrorism. The Islamofascist world would put down it's Tome Of Ecological Demands and give everyone hugs.
Except I've not heard one single american say they were proud of Jerry Springer. Not that facts ever get in the way of anti-american babblings.
Gasp in awe at the deep intellectualism of the hate-america left. She likes squirrels. Awwww!! If only this gal was in parliament.
the ideology of the lazy, the ignorant, and the loser.
Fritz Pettyjohn of California writes in.....
Well said Fritz :)
Stephen Dawson has
two excellent posts up at the Oz libertarian site: "What's
an Iraqi War got to do with libertarianism?" and "United
Nations support of the war? Why?".
It was eventful.
Went up on the train on Saturday morning. Spent the rest of the day at The Big Day Out.
My verdict? Kraftwerk - of all people - blew everyone to the weeds. The Deftones were good but suffered a muddy sound mix. The Vines started great but became repetitive awful quick. This was a problem with pretty much all the three-chord semi-punk acts: they all sounded the bloody same.
PJ Harvey and her guitar made a louder, nastier impact then all the lame-ass male rock acts put together. Were it not for Kraftwerk, she would have been the highlight of the show.
Crashed for the night on Tim Blair's couch. He and his (much) better half were kindly providing accommodations despite being busy with housemoving. James Morrow was there too, having joined us for a late-night vino-n-pizza session. I had two bottles of Lambrusco by myself, which was a bad idea.
Unbeknownst to me, the reason I was an hour late was I'd been looking at the wrong clock in Blair's house, which was an hour slow. Of course, a) I didn't have my own watch, b) didn't bother to ask that it was displaying the right time.
Oh, and of course I thought our train was leaving Sydney at 6.45pm and not 6.15pm. Despite some heroic 'emergency commuting' by Mr. Blair, we missed the train by minutes.
Fortunately, we were
able to grab the last bus service out of Sydney, which of course blew
a tyre on the way home. We got home at 1am instead of 10.20pm. Oh well.
It was still a fun weekend.
Loudmouth race huckster Oracene Price - mother of Australian tennis open winner Serena Williams - reckons Australians are all racist after her daughter got booed during the final.
Why the fuck can anyone not get that North Korea has no interest in disarming, since it allows them to keep a strangle hold on their own people, Mercedes in the garage and free nuke reactors and fuel oil from the West? All they do is ratchet up a crisis, get more free stuff, sign papers that mean nothing to them, keep on doing the illegal war stuff, and start the cycle all over again.
I am thinking we need to start lobbing bombs, not platitudes at these fascist freaks.
There's gonna be a slow-down in new posts on this site for the next day or two. I'm off to Sydney to watch The Big Day Out and catch up with some Sydney bloggers.
Mark Harrison comments on the brilliantly idiotic taxes levied on home insurance in the ACT. As Mark says: is it any wonder so many Canberrans do not take out home insurance?
And while we're on
this subject, Strawman has an interesting idea: sell
all fire-fighting assets to insurance companies.
still getting to it.....
I just checked: I've got about 50-60 unanswered e-mails still to get to, some dating back a couple of months. My apologies for my abysmal performance in replying to the great messages so many of you have sent. I'll make sure to get to them all this week.
