TGIF


Deal with it.

Nothing amazing politically is going to happen Friday.

No, not with the Euro crap, Obama, boat people, Gillard… Rudd… Richo…

No, North Korea isn’t going to attack and present a local angle…

There won’t be another choking death (shit, they must have gone all out… no wonder the groundskeeper got pissed when me and a mate did the whole asphyxiation thing for kicks getting high for free)…

A butane death? Not likely.

What’s significant has already happened.

We effectively now have a carbon (dioxide!) tax that will hurt us and do nothing for the planet.

We effectively now have a tax punishing our mining industry – the one’s keeping the country afloat – whilst we shell out only M millions to Africa’s miners.

We have B Billion dollar “deals” that we signed up for giving away B billions to overseas despots so that we can save the planet.

We’re talking almost 3 B billion dollars a year to buy credits from… who? Honest businesspeople?

We’re talking $76 T Trillion wanted by the UN from “the International Community” to fight a problem that has failed to manifest.

We’re talking a government held to ransom by a bloke – whilst his heart is in the right place – is failing to see the whole picture.

Carbon tax, mining tax, no mandate, disproportionate foreign aid for the benefit of one man who wants a UN (top) job, no border protection whatsoever, borrowings of $135m per day…

Oh how the real issues have been buried the last few days.

No worries. A few people in tents, pooping in evil plastic bags, in Manhattan, in a privately owned park whom the owners have been most flexible with, earning no money yet demanding lots, will fix it all.

    You cant make this shit up: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8366213/peta-trying-to-sue-seaworld-for-whale-slavery

    • Funny as shit, but fits perfectly into the general gist of the post that there just isn’t any new crap worthy to go on about.

      Remember the old/real crap.

      Seriously? PETA attacking Sea World? Talk about slow beyond slow news.

    hehehe… absolutely! Your posts have been most apt the last couple of days, BB. I’ve not had time to join in on the convo. Looking forward to FNPM this evening.

    So, throw your hands in the air (like you just don’t care!) our destination, unknown…

    When it comes to Friday… Love this classic from ’96.

    A bit African’ (which is fitting, thanks Kevin) and a nice mood enhancer for the night ahead, but only if you play it LOUD. Very tribal and awesome in a huge venue.

      PS. JM, should approve as the girls are doing the marching band thingy! 😆

      • Up early? Up late? Slightly O/T (but it’s Friday, Friday, so who cares) but now there’s one less thing I have to teach the kids: “Put your hands up!”

        Yes, thanks to some other K-Pop song, I no longer have to tediously explain, “Raise your hand to speak.”

        Up late and up early (a bt like ‘standing up whilst sitting down’)… it’s Cup Eve Weekend, here in old Melbourne town. Yay! I LOVE MELBOURNE!!! Always an excuse to party. Wooohooo!

        Sleep will be completed in short shifts of about 3-4hrs when time permits. 😆

        Sorry for being O/T, but FNPM isn’t up yet and I thought I’d help get you in the mood.

        This is for the kids… Hey teacher, leave them kids alone!

        • It’s the school’s b’day Tuesday.

          =
          ?

          Day off!

    Cheers

    • That was really cool, JM.

      As a side note, I don’t ask the following in all seriousness but am not being completely flippant, either: How can a bunch of people still living in straw huts get English so well whilst so many Koreans, people with apparently the highest IQs on the planet, who spend millions if not billions and countless hours still, on average, have so much trouble?

        Maybe we should colonise Korea?

        • Working on it, mate.

        Old-time church hymns, especially by Charles Wesley of the Methodists. Modern “Black Music” came out of the music of the Non-Conformists churches. The magic of ancient tribal sounds was an influence not a source. Rap, on the other hand, pure tribal, no music involved.

        Cheers
