Binders full of wannabe English speakers (open thread)


Hey, we’ve all been watching Gillard, Shagger, and Slippery Pete.

We’ve all been watching Mitt and Barry.

There’s also the Korean presidential election coming up the week before Christmas…

Point is, I wanna keep the chat open – I do read all the comments. Also, am very busy with the freelance work I’m doing these days.

Well, what can you do? You do what you can, right?

    They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity – couldn’t help wandering if Grizilla’s shoe slip up was even staged – after all, it made all the world’s news bulletins, as did the ‘rant’ – did that concentrate the minds of the UN voters, helping us to join Argentina & Rwanda on whatever toothless panel we’ve joined? After all, the only time we ever make o’seas news is if there’s a shark or croc attack.

    What it made me remember was the infamous Oz day riot. Hope McClelland pushes on with his conclusions that more than a junior staffer (since dispatched) was involved.

  1. A bit to say…

    find the other film clip at your peril


  2. Now this puts me in a good mood to say what I wanna say.

  3. Various Korean governments just can’t learn a lesson to save their lives. OK. Sure. Go harsh on the smokes and the booze. Guess it’s no coincidence that as you’ve gone harsher and harsher on the smokes and the booze, that illegal drug imports have gone through the roof. No connection? No? Yep, nice one. Keep cracking down on those nasty cigarettes coz to be sure to be sure, a bit of MDMA could finally put a smile onya faces!

  4. Sorry, Mum. Must do.

  5. Play this

  6. I just noticed TMI in the blogroll alongside. Thanks.

    • No worries. Have been meaning to put Michael Smith’s site on there, too. Essential reading.

      Hmmm. Some “Factual Accuracy Training” would be useful for some; Tim Flannery, Julia Gillard, Wayne Swan… the list of corrupt thieving bullshit artists is far too long for me to bother with. We all know who they are. :lol:

      • No doubt, Sean! Our libs in America are drooling for a taste of Aussie thought-control propaganda tactics!

    Julia Gillard has taken offence at this? Boy this woman really needs to get a life, and stop looking for things to whine about. Sorry will have to go back and get the article.

      Such a shame this incompetent, corrupt, victim of a female was ever given the chance to be PM. The useless slag gives Aussie women a bad name. A tragic turn of events for women in politics. I hope the majority realise she is the lowest of the low and it doesn’t reflect badly on sensible women who we all can respect.

      I’d love to see Julie Bishop in Gallard’s shoes, as a good example. Gillard is weak and in it for herself, a very flawed individual. She makes me sick, to be honest.

        I am finding her tantrums very tiresome, and the way she “demands”, people explain themselves to her, this woman who will not answer a single question on her doings regarding the Bruce Wilson fraud against the AWU. Yep agree with you Sean Julia makes people sick.

    Election debate #3 Barry Ogabe beaten like a red haired stepchild by Mittens

    • Sean of Deer Park
    • October 23rd, 2012

    Just watched the final US debate. To sum up, it was reminiscent of the Australian 2007 campaign in two words; “Me too”.

    Obama performed better this time than in his last two attempts, but Romney’s message was more believable when you look at Obi’s track record. Both of them strayed away from foreign policy a lot. A shame Romney didn’t hammer Obama about Libya, I thought he let him off the hook with the Embassy shambles in the first question; it was Romney’s chance to wipe the floor with Obama. Instead he didn’t go the jugular. Perhaps a tactic to not be seen as an attacker, but rather a man of principle and good grace. A President.

    Presentation wise, they both performed well, in terms of ‘niceness’. Again, Obama spoke a lot of non-truths in his content, which Romney then had to waist time in correcting errors and furphies. This made Obama look foolish.

    My bias, perhaps, leads me to believe Romney won the debate on fact and intent. Obama sounded nice but has had 4 years to prove his worth and didn’t really have anything to show or state that he has.

    Given all three debates, the reality of the state of the US economy and failure on world issues coming out of the US in the past five to six years; I’d vote Romney, if I were an American.

    I think Romney stands for traditional American values. Romney is not an apologist and wants the best for all the American people and the world. He is not afraid to say what needs to be said, which makes me feel he has a more believable character, has superior economic credentials, presents as more professional and these traits highlight Obama’s weakness.

    Roll on November 6, 2012.

      Hi Sean

      I think Mitt staying calm and measured won the day, Barry was getting shrill from about 45 minutes in.

      Why the Kenyan even bothered trying to run on his domestic/economic record (which he got nailed for at about 30 & 50 minutes in) was beyond me.

      Romney pressed the point of Jobs Jobs Jobs and that will then flow on to greater government revenue. Where Ogabe went for the victim/welfare card which may play well for the Democritter base but will do nothing to sway the indeps or swing voters.

      I stand by my statement that Mittens belted Barry like a red haired stepchild.

      What took them so long……………!!!!!!! Craig Thomson has been walking around with a smug look on his face as he may well think he has got away with it. His lawyer even says they will sue anyone who makes comments about his past acts, think someone just may take him up on that, and tell him “they will see him in court”.

    I just got this on fb from my local Victorian MP, the right honourable Bernie Finn, I had to share for your entertainment. I love Bernie, he is the best Liberal MP we’ve had in these ALP suburbs, ever! The dude is awesome. :lol:

    Planning: coastal management
    Mr FINN (Western Metropolitan) — I wish to raise a matter for the attention of the Minister for Planning, and I am delighted to see him in the chamber this evening. This matter concerns an issue that he is no doubt grappling with at the moment — that is, the alleged rising sea levels, which would affect in my region places such as Williamstown, Altona, Point Cook and the newly developing Wyndham Harbour, which is a very exciting development indeed. All those areas would be greatly impacted if there were rising sea levels. I ask the minister to take into consideration the cost to the taxpayer of the claptrap that has come from the climate change industry to this point.

    The minister may take into consideration desal plants around this country which were built on the basis that, according to Sandbags Flannery — Professor Tim Flannery — it would never rain again.

    *** DAILY HANSARD *** PROOF VERSION ONLY *** DO NOT QUOTE ***

    Of course he is known as Sandbags Flannery because since he made that statement we have had floods — –

    The DEPUTY PRESIDENT — Order! The President has made rulings about Mr Finn’s reference to Mr Flannery before and I ask Mr Finn to respect those. I confess that I do not recall the precise details of the President’s ruling, but I ask Mr Finn to — –

    Mr FINN — I am sorry, I thought that was just in reference to me referring to him as a shyster and a shonk, so I apologise.

    The DEPUTY PRESIDENT — Order! If Mr Finn wants to behave that way he will not have the rest of his adjournment matter listened to. He knows that that was completely out of order.

    Mr FINN — I honestly thought that was the case.

    The DEPUTY PRESIDENT — Order! I remind Mr Finn we are not in primary school, and I will not accept his look of innocence.

    Mr FINN — Perhaps I should write it out a hundred times. The desal plants are costing many billions of dollars around the country because of that particular individual.

    Then of course we have the carbon tax, which is costing Australians very dearly. That carbon tax was introduced because, according to the Prime Minister, ‘The earth is warming’. We now know, according to the British bureau of meteorology, that it is not warming, it has not been warming for at least 16 years and before that 16-year period any warming was negligible.

    It is just nonsense that has been pumped in to drag a dollar out of the government and out of the taxpayers of this country.

    Then of course we have to take into consideration the great hot gospellers of climate change — Al Gore, Kevin Rudd, Greg Combet and Tim Flannery himself — who have all moved to waterside residences. They are obviously deeply concerned about rising sea levels.

    I ask the minister to take these matters into consideration because there are a number of people in my electorate who are obviously concerned about decisions that may be made which will affect their properties and their suburbs. This is a very important issue. It is far too important to be decided on the advice of people who have been proven to be wrong time and again.

    I ask the minister to not accept the advice from the climate change industry willy-nilly but look at this — as I am sure he will — in a reasonable and balanced manner to deliver the right results for the people of Victoria in this very important matter.

    The DEPUTY PRESIDENT — Order! That was bordering on a set piece. I will allow it, but Mr Finn was disrespectful in pushing the envelope in the way he did.

    Mr Finn — On a point of order, Deputy President, I hear what you are saying; I do not understand it, though, and I would be grateful if you would explain that, please.

    The DEPUTY PRESIDENT — Order! I do not have to explain it. I am telling Mr Finn that it was bordering on a set piece.

    His behaviour in relation to Mr Flannery after I asked him to be careful and respect the President’s rulings was disrespectful to the chair and to Mr Flannery.

    Who says ‘Sandbags’ deserves respect?

    One of the great holiday things to do in the world is to climb ‘Ayers Rock’ if you get the chance to go see it. People have been doing it for years.

    Suddenly, when the government has a really bad day, this becomes the main headline story:
    http://www.news.com.au/travel/holiday-ideas/climbing-uluru-could-soon-be-banned/story-e6frfqdi-1226502331682

    FFS!! It is a ROCK. It is HUGE.
    In the early 1980′s the only part of it that was declared ‘sacred’ was at the ‘Elephants Arse’ (something like that) where the indigenous boys were circumcised when teenagers. Hardly a cause for these new-wave “eco-abo’s” to ban white people sharing one of Australia’s best holiday and cultural activities. Bloody Racists!

    I’m thinking about putting a planning application in to my local Council to ban ant’s from my backyard. I wonder what they’d say?

    Has anyone seen Gillzilla? Hiding under a rock somewhere, perhaps?

    Hi everyone! Good wishes from me to all !!!! Stuck to ‘Word docx’ trying to get uni thesis done by 31st Dec :80,000 words. (Ain’t gonna happen!!!- My advice is don’t do further study when u have 7 grandchildren!) Keeping up with everything on Twitter and will be a very happy person when both Obama and Julia get the chop! Not too sure Obama,will but if he has another 4 years I think the US will be a mess, Hope and Pray! :-D

      Stick with the study blossom, the worst you can do is defer for 6 months or a year.

      Lady Jugs and i keep telling the kids they can never learn to much but i forgot that 19, 21 & 29 year olds know more than their retard parents ;) .

      On the upside our move (only 1 year later than we planned) is on track, Lagy Jugs will still be working for the same bank and i scored a FIFO project offshore.
