who gives a shit ... ?

Yer, i know - every living species on this planet excretes.

However, have just heard that whales also give an important shit.
There are microscopic entities on this planet which apparently have yet to enter the political mind.

 The short story;-

They're called phytoplankton.
Phytoplankton absorb sunlight, iron and CO2.
Krill eat phytoplankton,
Whales eat krill, but excrete iron.
Phytoplankton absorb iron and CO2, excrete oxygen.

Therefore - fewer whales = more krill = fewer phytoplankton = more CO2.

(yer i know,  can't - at this point - reduce that equation into a "three word slogan" that might have any 'political' impact ... heh.)

Doubt that "Save the whales" would have any traction among the "sell the fossils" coterie.

A few friends turned up and we took two 4WDs and two trailers out into the forests and bushland. Collected wood.

education ......

Suck up, suck in ...
or differentiate.

YEEE HARRRR!!! - or, as the clown of our current "prime minister" continues to present himself as a dickhead on the world stage .. "ye how".
Ah, he now has a texan hat to add to the "family album". Whatever happens after his tenure matters not, to him.

He has achieved 'notoriety in his own lunchbox'. - he has (in the grand scale of political achievements): five minutes of Fame.

entitlements ... ???

OK, will post this - not written by me, but seems to be pottering around the internet, and caught my interest.
 Mainly due to "Honest Joe's" claim (or policy intention) that
 "... the age of entitlement" is over.

Will also accept that the requests have Buckley's chance of happening.

 Proposals to make politicians and bureaucrats shoulder their share of the weight now that the Age of Entitlement is over                    

                   
1. Scrap political pensions.                             Politicians can purchase their own retirement plan, just as most other working  Australians are expected to do.
                           
                   
2. Retired politicians (past, present & future) participate in Centrelink.                            A Politician collects a substantial salary while in office but should receive no salary when they're out of office.
                            Terminated politicians under 70 can go get a job or apply for Centrelink unemployment benefits like ordinary Australians.
                            Terminated politicians under 70 can negotiate with Centrelink like the rest of the Australian people.

                   
3. Funds already allocated to the Politicians' retirement fund be returned immediately to Consolidated Revenue.
                        
This money is to be used to pay down debt they created which they expect us and our grandchildren to repay for them.
            
                   
4. Politicians will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Politicians pay will rise by the lower of, either the CPI or 3%.        
                   
5. Politicians lose their privileged health care system and participate in the same health care system as ordinary Australian people.                             i.e. Politicians either pay for private cover from their own funds or accept ordinary Medicare.
           
                   
6. Politicians must equally abide by all laws they impose on the Australian people.          
                   
7. All contracts with past and present Politicians men/women are void effective 31/12/14.                            The Australian people did not agree to provide perks to Politicians, that burden was thrust upon them.
                            Politicians devised all these contracts to benefit themselves.
                            Serving in Parliament is an honour not a career.
                            The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so our politicians should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
           
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people, then it will only take three or so days for most Australians to receive the message. Don't you think it's time?

                   
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX Parliament and help bring fairness back into this country!                   
                   If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.



Um, don't delete, that bit came with the circular email from which this was 'copied' and 'pasted'..

It also fascinates me that politicians - or the current Federal lot - refuse to believe that they, themselves, are also paid - same as 'welfare' recipients - out of Australian COMMONWEALTH funds.
