  1. BB,

    … as caller after caller rang to say what a wonderful idea it was.

    I wonder how they would have reacted if one component of the plan had been to relocate every nursing home in Australia north of 19 degrees S?

  2. C@tmomma,

    This time next week I will NOT be doing ‘The Dance of the 7 Veils’ at Abduls.

    Of course you won’t! Isn’t lunch on Sunday 17th February?

  3. Not that I am able to join in the fun C@t but I thought the venue had changed for the February gathering. I’m sure though, that your entertainment segment will be sorely missed. 🙂

  4. foreverjanice,
    Correctemundo. There only has to be a smidgin of truth to something a journalist says for them to assert it these days.

    Which is why the smart money is here. We moved on and the journos are too stupid and lazy to have caught up with us yet. 🙂

    Let me also tell you that it is not beyond the realms of reason for the Jackson Faction to have inserted a covert agent into the house across the road for the purposes of destabilisation. Like the Coalition it’s all they’ve got and all they know, and the only way they know how to ‘win’…at all costs to their perceived enemies.

    I mean, wouldn’t that just be the epitome of a ‘Guided Democracy’. A Protagonist and an Antagonist couple of parties that divided the spoils up complicitly and covertly between them? But whom were both on the same side together against their common foe. The ‘Pure of Heart’. 🙂

  5. Of course you won’t! Isn’t lunch on Sunday 17th February?

    OK, I plead guilty to not having my ‘First Dog on the Moon’ calender put up yet in the kitchen. I was winging it. 😀

  6. It’s ‘interesting’ that whenever you hear journalists say, “the electorate just doesn’t like Julia Gillard”, what they really mean is that THEY don’t like JGPM because she doesn’t play their game of sycophancy and toadying to them the way Tony Abbott, and other PMs before Julia have done.

    I mean, how would they know what the electorate, all of it, ‘thinks’ ?

  7. wtte,, shiut up when stuffing up

    i read that also, and it corssed my mind,,, it was either fantasy or coming from only one person,=

    one has to wonder about people that are still thinking about him retunring
    when the present pm has been pm longer that he now,

    i like would to be able to call out the trolls, as being something they are not.

    and how that place has any one there i have no idea
    going over the same crap all the time day in day out,

    its rather boring, and repetive like the abc.

  8. c tma
    there was an article on that very think it could of been mr denmore

    something about reporters]. wtte really just talking to each other,

    not to the public,


    so are they saying we dont lilke her and we expect u to think like us
    and we will keep you till you do,

    sort of brainwashing…

    if you say somthing enough people may in fact start to think it,

    yesterday iin an email , they are both as bad as each other

    ” o they are as bad as each other”

    i ddint let they that go.

    i actualy think its a cop out that sentance as, they cannot be bothered being interested, well to their peril

    i wrote back,,, no i dont agree with that and what give you that thought

    then i listed all the labor polices and things now in place i could think of

    then said now i list the libs

    and explained they would take back the carbon price and the money benfits.

    . told them about ind. sites

    .. they are quite eldery ,,,,, so i doubt i will make any difference,

    i did say i thought,,, that they where thinking this liberal party was still
    like the days of menzies and frazer.

    i explained that frazer is horrified and i doube menzies would say they where liberals,

    in fact he may say they are d l p


    just for interest sake, do u know if we have people that just read this site

    i am very worried about the people that read over there now

    re trolls,

    i want people to know what labor is really doing

    probably never hear from them again,,, but one has too say it

  9. probably never hear from them again,,, but one has too say

    the above should of been above the line.

    acutally they are very nice people and just love t o keep in touch

  10. people often say what a wonderfull idea

    till it effects them…. for example for that one i would of said,

    ok your son that works in the public service will be relocated to the


    ” you want see much of your granchidlren then and are they going to buy and new home sell this one here or rent it out”

    just stuff like that one usiually see a light bulb go on

    most people NEVER think things through before they say somthing


    which reminds me i am likely to lose power any second.
    oh and our neighbour decided to cut the trees near the power lines.

    well i just looked and they have managed to bring the power lines down

    with the tree branches

    Hydro on their way

    some lucky some one has time and half pay i suppose,

  11. Dance Of The Six Veils then?

    I may ‘dance’ around the point with a few ‘veiled’ references, but that’s as close as it’s going to get to what your looking forward to mister! 😀

  12. c@tmomma

    [I’d just like to have it listed, rather than snidely asserted, just HOW Julia Gillard is ‘stuffing up’?]

    As i said over the road, there is a saying wtte…

    [If everyone knew what went into making a sausage or into making our laws, not one more sausage would ever be eaten, or one law obeyed.]

  13. This is supposed to be a tweet from PMJG.

    .@michellegrattan Always a must read. Looking forward to reading you on @ConversationEDU JG

  14. Unless someone has hacked into PMJG’s Twitter account it really is a tweet from her. It’s polite and carefully worded. Note that she did not say she enjoyed Ms Grattan’s work or agreed with any of it.

  15. .@michellegrattan Always a must read. Looking forward to reading you on @ConversationEDU JG

    The corollary to that being, of course, that she is looking forward to NOT reading her at The Age.

    fwiw Margo Kingston believes Ms Grattan will be an asset to The Conversation.

    Margo Kingston claims to be a People’s Journalist, but she does seem to have an unhealthy hankering to cuddle up to the mainstream hackocracy.

    Michelle Grattan wouldn’t be an asset to even the parish church weekly, much less The Conversation.

  17. I’m getting very fed up with Margo Kingston’s ongoing hymn of tweeted praise to Michelle Grattan. Yes, I understand she thought Michelle was the best editor to work for evah, but it’s been going on all day and I’m more than a bit over it.

    I’ve always appreciated Margo’s work and I’m glad she’s back and all fired up. But enough is enough.

    Also thanks to Howard and his conscription of the terms ‘Howard’s Battlers’ and ‘Aspirationals’, it thus encompasses a lot of the people who live in these seats. The Small Business owners(even though Labor HAS tried very hard to win them over), the Tradies(whom Ray Hadley tries very hard, on behalf of the Coalition to win over, and has succeeded to a large part, the Old Aged Pensioners and Retirees(who are in Alan Jones’ pocket). Plus, these days, increasingly, are added the Socially Conservative bloc from various religions, a lot of whom have their headquarters in Sydney’s Western suburbs, based upon their traditional shunning by the rest of Sydney and migration there to form their now entrenched enclaves

    A pretty good summary of some of the mess there. Can I just add a direct knowledge example.? My nephew went from Adelaide to Sydney outer west with his transport management work. He married a girl from there, a divorcee, about 8 or 10 years older than him, with several ready-made daughters, and had two themselves.

    Father-in-law paid deposit on a McMansion in Campbelltown. A good start and all they had to do was keep up the payments – not too hard on his pay. Lost the place in about a year, unable to keep up. Went to Adelaide for a while and then returned. Now renting a McMansion at a very high rate. Nephew at one point was doing pizza deliveries to try to keep up.

    Massive over-consumption is at the heart of it. She doesn’t seem to recognize limits. Recently returned from a trip to the US with a huge credit card bill, and is planning to go back!

    Now a lot of that must be down to her personally not having any sense of proportion. Even so, I just wonder if the Howard years of pouring out electoral pork inflamed that attitude that we have unbounded riches and you can have anything you dream of.

    If there are other families under similar stress, it would be no surprise that they sought to blame others for their strife. After all, everything was fine in the Howard years.

    Even when he was not trying to, Howard seemed able to wreck the social fabric of our society.

  19. i could never understand what howard battlers was about.

    he never did any thing for us when interest where 17 person not a thing.

    i think it was a catch phrase, like dont worry daddy will look after you.

    the term howards battlers seem paternal to me, yukkk i hated the phrase

    i wonder who thought it up

    battler for what, the libs never provided a free uni. education or started medi care pb s no.. so imagine if there was none of that

    we would surly be more than battlers

    it was a myth and still is

    no one was better off when he was around they just told us we where

  20. i am just about to sack my automatic spell check

    there u go ive sacked it
