Filed under Letters by Editor

Err, gidday. Oim hoping youse an yer readers can soign the petishun to end gummint taxin fun.

The link is

Me an me mates are dedicated boozers an we think it stinks that our funnin’ is stuffed by paying tax on grog & smokes & stuff ennat.

Mate, like, a box of VB is nearly 50 bucks an the taxashun steals $17 of that for his own pissup. Workin’ Strayans shouldn’t be payin’ for gubberment grog I mean fork me.

The govt taxes yer fun even when yer just tryin ta get smashed. No fair.

Just the other day I wuz havven a beer with Dunc, Col, Kev, and we drink in moderation an’ we never ever, well maybe sometimes, maybe often… orright, every time, but we never ever get rollin’ drunk. We told Col to stop bringin’ his doll ‘cause she’s too hard to pump up, and Kev’s friggin’ rustbucket flamin’ Chev froths up the beer ‘cause he hassent got aircon like but the atmosphere is great.

So, hows about signin’ me pettishum youse lousy lefty wankers? I knows yer all a bunch of pissheads ‘cause youse into all that red an white viniegar crap.

Johnno, no I mean Bazza,

Down Under


Ink Irresistable

Not the NYT Montaigne's what would I know? Huxley's almost anything about almost everything. Or Bierce and nothing matters. Codifying life's inimitable impromptu inclines irrestistably to essay.

Civilization ..

   defiles itself

Times past when warlords, priests and royalty hoarded luxury, life was a short grim struggle. Today most want for little yet still deny dignified survival to working poor, and ravage entire countries as collateral to our laissez faire fiesta.

A Century of Imperialism

American foreign policy never a pretty sight, finesse of the mobile crane chase from Terminator 3. Export democracy? Cure worse than disease. double arrow Read more ..


~ its own reward

And what's going on in Land of the Free, Home of the Brave? As 40% of kids fail graduation the Iraqistan wars suck $2.4 trillion [CBO 2017 est]. Imagine this staggering sum applied to rebuilding The Great Society. Think of others.

This lazy unemployed

..crack-smoking welfare queen ran up U$15 trillion debt

lazy homeless scum
Odd how the ultra-wealthy gull even working poor to blame unemployed, disabled, weak, and vulnerable while but for the grace of God go all.

If he's a welfare leech then your soul is with the sociopaths and predators who own Warshington and its minions, the Repugnicans and Dumfocrats, gutting a once noble nation that aspired to equality.

This elite will survive the US economic train wreck, land softly on 300 million plundered taxpayers, then from fortresses of luxury and privilege prey elsewhere for spoils.

The dawn of civilization was greatly exaggerated.

Munch Montage

Painters, such a sad old bunch
None it seems more so than Munch
Upon that bridge with skies afire
A meme took flight to never tire.
