The Big Budget Bribe.2018

download

 

The 2018 Federal Budget will be announced tomorrow ( or what little parts already haven’t been) but a desperate Government hoping to bribe the voters into re-electing them.

By all reports they are going to spend big on infrastructure as well as any other items the think will be looked upon favourably as well as giving tax cuts and other sweeteners immediately to the lower classes while the more affluent will have to wait a few years.

Morrison and Mal are indeed trying to be Santa Claus. The hypocrisy is astounding by them as well as the complicate media,

What happened to the DEBT AND DEFICIENT disaster   we were warned about day in and day out when it was much lower than what it is now? What about the Sovereign Risk to Australia,? WE were all going to be ruined unless it was bought back under control.

This is the biggest bribe in place since Costello’s last one, which was the last trick to save their tired old Government from losing. This coming budget is about saving Turnbull/Morrison and the rest of Coalscums jobs.It will be talked up as brilliant by their sprukers and lickspittles , Labor will pillared from post to paddock if they don’t immediately agree to pass all the measures in the budget and then get out of the way and let the rightful rulers get on with their agenda with out question.

Will the Public fall for it, or are they more savvy than given credit for?

Time will tell.

  1. PvO has been taunting opponents of gender quotas in politics & company boards today. Here is one nugget he dug up and tweeted.

  2. PvO’s gender equality comments seem to have been inspired by this –

    Resigns from the Qube board because he couldn’t stomach the idea of women being allowed on boards, and is replaced by ….. a woman!

      We have joined the ‘rogue states’ category. Truly disgusting. Trump and Truffles, brothers in arms. Scum.

  3. What the hell is wrong with the US?

    First the Santa Fe shooting, where the “militantly pro-gun Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick” said it wouldn’t have happened if the school had fewer doors. He wants schools retro-fitted to remove a lot of those doors which,apparently, kill people.
    http://junkee.com/santa-fe-shooting-doors/159317

    Banning doors is OK, but not banning guns.

    Then, just hours ago, there was another shooting at a high school graduation in Georgia. One dead, at least two injured.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2018/05/18/one-killed-two-injured-in-shooting-after-georgia-high-school-graduation-report-says/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.6c2a9356ca1e.

    ‘It’s been happening everywhere’: Santa Fe saddened but not surprised by shooting

    ……..what felt different from the norm in Santa Fe after the latest American school massacre was the sense that despite theshock, such events happen often enough that it would be almost naive to experience disbelief. Even for some children, it seems, it has become a matter of not if, but when and where.

    A television journalist’s interview with one Santa Fe student, Paige Curry, went viral on social media. “Was there a part of you that was like, ‘This isn’t real, this would not happen in my school?’” the reporter asked her.

    Curry gave a rueful semi-laugh. “No, there wasn’t,” she replied. “It’s been happening everywhere, I’ve always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here too.”

  4. Putting a different slant on the bleeping royal wedding –

    And – Henry VIII is buried in St Georges Chapel, the wedding party walked right over his vault.
    https://thefreelancehistorywriter.com/2016/07/29/where-is-king-henry-viii-buried-and-why-doesnt-he-have-a-tomb/

  5. Nice wedding. At least the sun was shining. We liked the horses. The preacher was animated, but I have no idea what he said because the sound was turned down on my laptop because Meoldema was watching the footy.

    Why the wretched AFL could not finish their matches before the start of the coverage I have no idea. Damned disrespectful colonials.

    • What wedding? 😉

      I switched off when the ABC had an article on why we’re fed up of hearing about royal wedding articles.

    • SInce the eruptions are a result of the ‘hot-spot’ in the magma below the island and the whole archipelago is a result of its gradual south east movement, this could be an event on a par with normal geological time scales (i.e. bloody long time) so if I was living there I might be in for a looooooong wait.

  6. Off topic, but after watching many Mt. St. Helens docos, I don’t think I’ve seen this before:

    • I can remember that photo sequence from the time. The “National Geographic” May have published them. They also showed time sequence photos of the bulge that developed on the north side in the lead up to this shot.

  7. The distance between the erupting vents is about 6.6km long; it’s even longer when you add in areas that are just steaming/fuming.

    The scale is just mind boggling.

  9. In case you missed it –

    Australia has no right to be on the UN Human Rights Council, given our record of abuses and persecutions. Julie Bishop’s excuses are just inane pandering to the Trump administration.

  12. During budget week SloMo was telling us the NDIS was now fully funded, thanks to his wonderful financial management.

    At the weekend we learnt most kids with autism were to be excluded form the NDIS to save money. According to The Weekend Australian this was “part of a sweeping overhaul to rein in costs.” which has been underway since late last year.

    Has there been much media hype over the discrepancy between those two claims? I suppose not.

  13. The AGL board has decided not to sell the Liddell power station to Alinta – not a surprise. Abbott and Bananaby have gone ballistic, also not a surprise.
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-05-21/agl-knocks-back-offer-for-liddell-coal-plant/9782252

    I like Amy Remeikis’s take on Abbott’s response.

    It’s Tony Abbott time!

    He is speaking to Ray Hadley and says the AGL decision is a “strike against the national interest…it is a strike against the national interest in the same way a militant union may strike against the national interest”.

    He says the government should “compulsory acquire” the station from the company.

    Sooooo, a Liberal MP is calling for the government to just take an asset from a private company because it doesn’t like the decision its board made. The party of the free market. The party of small government.

    Abbott uses the analogy that we moved from sailing ships to steam ships, because they didn’t rely on the wind, to cement his point that we shouldn’t be focussed entirely on renewable energy because “the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow”.

    That proves too much for even Hadley, and he moves on to the royal wedding. Surprising no one, Abbott loved it, but wasn’t a huge fan of Rev Michael Curry

    • Ugh! Sequin overdose. Sparkly frocks are very inappropriate for a diplomatic event.

      Is she trying to look like Michaelia or is Michaelia trying to look like Jules?

    • Is Michealia making moves on Bishop’s handbag, Mr Pantone??
      Cash has form on this when she, 23, was in Senator Lightfoot’s, 65, office and he was Bishop’s partner

    • Michaelia is married – to Richard Price – so she had better not be making moves on anyone.

      I can’t imagine any sane male wanting to be within 100 metres of that harpy.

  14. Those terrorists invading Gosford Anglican church probably should be ignored, don’t give them Oxygen.

    They still should have the book thrown at them though.

    • I know they do it because they want attention, but I think we do need to know what they get up to. If it is ignored then they get away with it, and will keep on doing more and more outrageous stunts until they finally get that attention. Do we want to keep quiet until one of them eventually runs amok with one of the guns we know they possess, and then act surprised because “a good bloke” killed innocent people?

      Better to talk about it now, hopefully nip it in the bud and make people understand the potential danger. We do that for alleged “terrorism” suspects, simply because they are supposedly Muslim, why can’t we do it for white attention seekers.
