The curse of interesting times

The Chinese curse is “may you live in interesting times” and that certainly seems to be the case at present since the changes in the Senate have brought the Palmer party into play. They certainly have shown themselves to be totally out of their depth and it must be vexatious to be obliged to deal with them to get important legislation through the upper house.  They have done a good job of proving that they are just as loopy as the Greens with the debacle of their attempts to amend the Carbon tax to add punitive measures against any businesses that fails to pass on the savings to their customers shows that they are in their own way greener than the loopy Greens.

Even so its better than having the Labor/Greens holding the senate in their hot little hands, still not a great option but definitely better than what went before  but am I the only one who is wishing that Clive would succumb to the negative consequences of his obesity?   Because I can’t decide if he is more objectionable in the media saturation that he has achieved that the whining sanctimony that we get from Christine  Milne and Sarah Hanson Young?

    I think so, Iain.

  2. Iain Hall says:

    I’m sure that you are only enjoying is faux buffoonery because he is an annoyance to the Abbott government but the more sensible politics junkies think otherwise Ray.

  3. Ray Dixon says:

    I think he hasn’t put a foot wrong yet, Iain, and is cleverly taking the middle ground and making himself very appealing to the electorate by standing up for the less well off. He ain’t stupid, our Clive. Besides, what exactly has he done that you regard as wrong?

  4. Iain Hall says:

    Well he has got you fooled if you think that his self serving grandstanding is “taking the middle ground” because the only interests that he is standing up for are his own.

  5. Ray Dixon says:

    Hang on, Iain, can you be more specific than that? What has he done that you say is wrong?

    Like the cartoon!

  7. Iain Hall says:

    Yes Deknarf its a great cartoon that proves that twitter, where I pinched it from is not entirely useless!
    Ray
    Palmer is obviously trying to do anything he can to prove that he is more important than the elected government by stymieing all attempts to fix the budget and trying at the same time to be the epitome of a political populist rather than a man of any principle. How anyone can be taken in by his bullshit eludes me.

  8. Ray Dixon says:

    Palmer is … stymieing all attempts to fix the budget

    Um, how’s he doing that, Iain? He’s agreed to repeal the Carbon Tax (subject to a few conditions) and nothing else has been put up to him yet. So far he hasn’t been any kind of ‘blocking force’, just one who wants to conduct diligent reviews of legislation before it passes – which is the Senate’s role and purpose.

    Abbott will sell his arse to Clive, to get the Carbon Tax off the radar, that is if he don’t get his arse blown off, from some upset RSL former pow, who had his dead mate eaten by a Japanese soldier.

    Meanwhile in Bali the “white trash of Australia” are getting noticed again.

  11. GD says:

    Richard, why do you hate Australia so much? You live here, you obviously benefit from living here, why do you hate Australia so much?

  12. GD says:

    Richard, why do you hate Australia so much? You live here, you obviously benefit from living here, why do you hate Australia so much?

    Why do you support the carbon tax? It’s costing you, unless your DSP has kicked in…

    Why do you support Islamic terrorists who have contributed nothing to your current well-being?

    Are you a complete idiot or a traitor to our country?

    And why, Ray Dixon, do you support Richard’s comments?

    FFS!

  13. richard ryan says:

    Unlike you I put my name to my comments. Don’t hate Australia, just racists arse-holes like you, and country western singers, who put on a Yankee accent.

  14. richard ryan says:

    A blogger who uses a screen name to back his comments has no backbone————–his principles are driven by the dollars in his wallet.

  15. GD says:

    Unlike you I put my name to my comments.

    And that’s doing you a lot of good in the community, I presume you vote, pay rates, have an address etc. It’s always good for people to know if there’s a wacko living next door.

    Answer the rest of my questions, fool!

  16. Ray Dixon says:

    And why, Ray Dixon, do you support Richard’s comments?

    I don’t support ALL of Richard’s comments, GD, but if and when he says something I agree with I support that. Why do you support the comments of some people who also make comments that you do not support? You know, like you *sometimes* support what I say. GD, I suggest you need to start playing the field again. Getting out there and getting some might revive your cognitive functions.
