Democracy vs Liberty today
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.
Bob Katter: sanguine, caring, amorous
I like Bob Katter. I think he injects some much needed colour and character into Australian politics. I just feel sorry for his facial muscles and hope he gives them a rest some day.

Word for the day - Ineptocracy
Word for the day
Ineptocracy (in-ept-o-cra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.
The Man From Charters Towers
It was the man from Charters Towers who struck the Canberra town,
He talked about our national parks, he talked about the crown.
He listened here, he listened there till he was like to drop,
Until at last in sheer despair he said it’s time to stop.
Politics will need to change,
AUSTRALIAN’S see the need,
The nanny state is getting worse, we need a better creed.
Katter polling well
