Hey you know we have an election coming up, Trumpy is in great form sending in the National Guard and teaching those soft on crime Democrat governors a lesson in Power Politics; burn baby burn! We have to stop armed migrants from taking our streets, sending out 17 year olds armed to the teeth shows we mean business. It’s the right of every (White) American to shoot who he Goddam pleases, it goes real well with our gun lobby, you folks should give it a try! What’s wrong with you people wearing facemasks, just carry your guns and change that constitution of yours!
Good to see you guys are trying to stop politicians using the postal service, but Pauline is one of the good guys, you got the wrong target. That Dan Andrews got the right idea, curfew all the migrants, but not white folks, someone have a word with the guy, he’s taking it too seriously. Trump knows all about false news he can give Andrews a few tips on how to deal with a press Conference and the virus, his mate Boris Johnson is doing a top job, especially now he has Tony as guide.
We love the way you guys make politics a comedy routine, those NSW Nationals want to sit on a cross bench and be ministers, how the hell do you do that? Trump reckons he sure ain’t going anywhere, he’s asking that joker in Belarus to come over and give us some tips on how to handle women, mind you Trump reckons he’s an expert there. Trump says Republican Presidents can do anything they want and doesn’t need Putin this time and he sure likes the idea of President for Life, if Xi can do it so can Trump, that’s our boy!
Why do you guys allow illegal votes through your Post, close it down! We can help you spread conspiracy theories but you had better go easy on our friends at Facebook. Remember good guys don’t lose elections, it's radical socialists and migrant girls like Harris who are trying to steal this election.
Now the real news?
Not content with locking up asylum seekers indefinitely, some have been detained over 7 years. The Government decided it would be a good idea to remove their access to mobile phones. Just imagine if we did that to people in Melbourne under lock down! Minister Dutton claimed they had been accessing child pornography sites, what all of them? No evidence is made public, this seems like group punishment to me.
Helen Scheller was one of the letter writers to the Age who wrote about their plight. I quote her letter:- “Refugees are rapidly becoming the forgotten people. They have been condemned to a life without hope merely because they had the temerity to believe that a country such as ours would welcome them and give them the chance for a new life they dreamed of.
Now new proposed legislation would strip them of their only link to the outside world, their phones. It appears that our Prime Minister can show compassion, and deliver practical help to every group in the country, but, alas, refugees are not on the list”
You may not agree with Helen, I quote her letter as an example of direct action. Other U3A members are involved in Council elections, let me know what you have been doing.
Covert is giving our politicians a lesson in in constitutional powers, I think a number of politicians have been reading their constitution handbooks for maybe the first time. Sure, Canberra has the money, but surprise the States have the powers. Border Force is looking a bit lame. Then to the Feds horror they find they are in charge of Aged Care facilities, suddenly Minister Hunt no longer wants to hammer Victoria on this issue, can we just talk about gas instead?
Jo Biden wants to talk about energy and climate change. Joe has this strange idea that gas is a carbon fuel responsible for methane pollution and global warming, he wants American allies to dump it and get on clean energy. If Biden wins Morrison might find there is a political price to be paid for gas.
Trump is set to leave the Paris Climate Agreement the day after the election, when countries can change their stance, that should play well for his audience and he remains President to Inauguration Day, plenty of time to stir trouble in the Courts and on the streets if he loses. Showing my bias, I meant if the Democrats try and steal it.
California is now due for cooler weather and reduced fire hazards, that was Trump’s message to the State Governor. Maybe our fire crews can come back home and bring a few spare water bomber aircraft with them, it seems the Californians will not need them. Trump also cancelled the order for drones equipped to aid fire-fighting, because they are made in China, maybe the Chinese would offer us a cheap deal now we have withdrawn our journalists?
The Chinese have taken note how Western Countries had a lot to say about Hong Kong, but took no action, resulting in Xi positioning forces to scare the Taiwanese into submission, or invade them, a lose, lose for Taiwan and the West. another fine mess!
Give Trump his due, he is withdrawing US Forces from Afghanistan as he promised, abandoning the civilian population to the war lords and Taliban once more. I wonder if Australia had any say in what Trump decided, or are we just do what we are told? At the end of the Gulf War when the US withdrew from Iraq I wondered what all the killing and bombs achieved. A broken country with warring factions and a brutalized civilian population that was ripe for the Taliban.
20 years on from the aircraft smashing into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, I fear the world is facing a dangerous future. A time for diplomacy? Or does no one believe in that anymore? I think we have been poisoned by the politics of fear and loathing, it’s time to find our moral compass and let politicians know what WE think.
