In Topic: NBN - Is it too expensive?

04 May 2018 - 07:22 PM

I am really getting annoyed by Senator Fifield.  He keeps sprouting bullshit about the NBN being fit for purpose and in the same breath blaming Labor for leaving them a heap of shit to deal with.  What load of .....


In Topic: What's on your mind?

Haven't had a proper pizza for ages!

Well ! Don't mess about ! Get here ASAP ! These guys are doing their last shift tomorrow night and then their off back to Tassie. The iriots !! I only found this out tonight.

I wished them well as you do, and told them I'd see them in the nearish future ... they looked at me as you would look at a fool . I paid no attention to it ;) Just said it would be too bloody

cold down there. Sweat dripping off them, they continued to think me a fool ( I could tell this now by the same look they gave ) ... but I know better, lol. This couple are not in the first bloom of youth

and despite their mind, their bones will crave the warmth .

After enjoying tonight's pizza sooooo, I bloody hope I'm right.


Also. I just viewed part of Smith's 'sorry' speech to the media. I think he's sorry for the kudos and sponsorship deals and money he's gonna have to do without, but I doubt he's understanding exactly

why it's come to this ( I think he should be ousted from Aus Cricket for life ). My reasoning is that if he really understood then the tampering would not have occurred. end of story.

 

 

With regards to the ball-tampering situation recently, IMO, culturally, the Aussie Cricket team's culture had changed, with Smith being the leading cause in the charge in this culture change.  I have been watching since Smith took over and you could see it happening right in front of you.  I am not questioning the fact that he is a great player but the fact is that he wasn't captain material.  As much as I don't want to see Darren Lehmann go, he is right in saying that Aussie Cricket needs to start over.  That's all I will say about that, apart from, that never in my years even think that this kind of thing would be spoken about Aussies cheating.  Sigh.


In Topic: how crap is this government ?

Trumps budget is out, it will run more deficits despite savage cuts to domestic services. The military got a boost and there's 3.7 trillion in tax cuts to corporations.

 

Wooptidoo.  Now that wasn't too surprising given that he has always been asking for tax cuts since forever.  So now the way to pay off the 21trillion+ government deficit is to cut taxes.  RIGHT!!!!

You talk about wanting to do something for the common good, but then bemoan that both parties no longer have big majorities and have to compromise on the middle ground to get anything done?

 

I think you misunderstood me Nich.  Rather, what I was trying to say is that there isn't any real leadership in either party, as in no person, that I would follow.  I mean, can you tell me what any politician from and including KRudd till now has done anything of note?  Well, KRudd will be known for his stimulus package, whether we agree with it or not, and the NBN v1.  However, there has been no real achievement of note since then and we have had 3 PMs since then.  I don't know, maybe I need a holiday.  My head is filled with shit at the moment.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords. IMO, 2 was better, even if this is prettier.

Might give that a go when I get back.
