    Indeed. Or all the many, many droughts in this country's history.

    The notion that the current drought started on 9 December 2017 is imbecilic - to put it as politely as possible. To even imagine there's any link whatever between droughts and bushfires and said legislation is cretinous in the extreme. As a Christian (as opposed to whatever he is) and as someone grappling with the devastation drought (God forbid fires as well) is inflicting on my part of the country - and so much of the nation - at the present time, I find Folau's mindless crap beyond offensive - again, to put it ridiculously politely.

    It would be good if the media would simply ignore Folau and his (and his family's) moronic, fundamentalist misinterpretation of the Old Testament. Unfortunately, that's about as likely as the rain we so desperately need falling any time soon.

    I blame 9/11 for this. If that hadn't happened, society would still be open and friendly. Racism would be less blatant, and so on. Thanks, Obama Osama.

    I blame the LNP and its cronies wanting to turn Australia into China Lite.

    Blame Dutton too because he has a boner for that kind of thing.


    Today Tonight has been officially axed.

    Proof of a God well not really.

    A mix of China Lite and Trumpmerica.

    No, I would accept that as proof of a god. What a shit show it became. Fat kids on miracle diets being ripped off by shonky builders used by mad neighbours, moving in for a close up of someone crying.

    Today Tonight has been dead in the eastern states since 2014. The NSW version was the first to go, in 2002, being combined with Victoria and a year later, Queensland.

    today tonight should have been canned 25 years ago. It's one of the biggest piles of shit to ever grace Australian tv screens and it's competitor on ch9 is just a bad.

    base tabloid journalism masquerading as current affairs.

    SO... we need to talk about Angus Taylor.

    His shit is exploding everywhere. The latest is this thing about the doc lifted from the City of Sydney website, meant to show that Clover Moore was profligate. Trouble is, the doc had been altered, and basically lied. A few short searches by journalists later revealed that Taylor's wife, Louise Clegg... wants to be Lord Mayor, much as Lucy Turnbull was.

    This is by far the shittiest, most self-centred Government I have ever lived under.

    But the Libs seem hellbent on defending him no matter the cost. He must have some really juicy dirt on everyone.

    Sounds revolting...




    And don't forget George Christensen, from the party of family values spending some 300 days in Manila at dodgy bars with young girls.

    Lost 3 good musos in the last week.

    Martin Armiger, guitarist, of The Sports.
    Stuart Fraser, guitarist, of Noiseworks.
    Greedy Smith, keyboard/lead vocals, of Mental As Anything.

    What would the 80s and 90s been without them?

    I will definitely try it. I never miss a new chip flavour. Mac and Cheese was awesome.
