Thanks helen b. I know what you mean about The Hoopla - it's like a bit of fresh air in the putrid sea of MSM sewage that we find ourselves in these days. Sorry for the gross analogy but it really feels that way sometimes!
As for people looking to Kevin Rudd, lol I read someone said that he's not the Messiah, he's just a very naughty boy! Lol. But a big part of this thing of people thinking that he is Labor's messiah is that it's precisely one of Murdoch's propaganda messages in his campaign to bring down Prime Minister Gillard's government (she who won't toe the line) - how the only hope for the future is a leadership challenge. Naturally it doesn't help that Rudd also happens to be a proven self-serving narcissistic traitorous self-sabotaging egomaniac who refuses to work under a woman and so we have the situation where such a character is seriously being considered as someone who can do a better job than our PM, when he already demonstrated that he was completely hopeless at the job http://www.brw.com.au/p/leadership/kevin_need_rudd_talk_about_kevin_5ZX8lSS05BEXZMxtB6CaTO.
All I can say is I would certainly never vote for a traitor for PM, and if Laborites' ideals are about putting the interests of the majority over the individual, Kevin Rudd is not doing a good job of having that quality at all (Exhibit A: himself). So what on earth does that make him? Not Prime Minister material that's for sure. Why am I starting to believe the idea that many Aussies are brain-dead retards for believing that this guy is any good?
Going back to Murdoch's propaganda, his other two messages apart from how the only hope for the future is a leadership challenge are: how appalling the Government is; and how disastrously it is doing in the opinion polls. I guarantee that those three are the only three things that appear in our MSM's front pages every single day, on newspapers, TV news, digital news. No policies, just these 3 pieces of garbage everyday. Because it is garbage, it's not based on any facts at all whatsoever. And there you have Murdoch's method of brainwashing the unsuspecting masses into believing his sewer-full of lies. Propaganda 101! - Bridget
Be careful with the tampons if you have young children. My sister and I were driving around dural when my son was 3!/2 and her daughter was a bit oder. We were busy talking and paid no attention to them in the back seat. They had ratted out bags, unwrapped a couple of tampons and each was holding them out the car window by the string.
My bag has sanitiser, tissues and panadol, actually nurofen in the small plastic container. Less messy that a packet. I do clean out handbags fairly regularly. This organising does not necessarily extend to the rest of my life. Like Bec, I have emergency knitting, usually a sock. - Jan
Rod, no one here gives a rat's a*se about your moronic ideas so why don't you go on back to the Murdoch rags where you and your brain-dead opinions belong. Go on. Shoo! - Bridget

And that vote came from Abbotts friend ", Peter Slipper.
Abbott repaid Slipper by dumping him for pre selection in the electorate he had represented for decades .
Slipper was them set up by Ashby and Brough as payback for accepting the Speakers position in the House of Reps . , by accusing him of Sexual Harrassment etc.
Abbott then went for Slippers jugular in the Kangaroo court which used to be Our Parliament
and ( in my opinion ), tried to push him over the edge . Abbott actually had the gall to call Slipper a Misogynyst and a Sexist in the Parliament ( classic pot calling the kettle black).
The PM responded with the Misogyny Speech.
Abbott does seem to take pleasure in destroying reputations , Thompson / Slipper / Gillard .
He can't defeat Gillard on Policy , so he has her reputation trashed in the Murdoch Press
If you've noticed Gillard and Labor haven't recovered in the Polls since News Ltd and others relentlessly trashed her over AWU , even though they all knew that there was nothing in the AWU bullshit. - Carole/m
Chris, if New England votes in Joyce ahead of Windsor, it will have the same result if the LNP do win government. An LNP government will still do FA for them as it will take it for granted that New England doesn't need sweetening up to vote for its candidate.
I really hope the other voters of New England have the moral fortitude to vote for a candidate who has worked tirelessly for them for decades, and really does have their interests at heart. Joyce, conveniently parachuted in, has shown time and again that it is not his electorate's interests that are closest to his heart. CSG anyone? - Jeannie
To get started write a list but be sure that the first item on the list is WRITE A LIST, then cross it off as done. A great feeling of satisfaction that means you can reward yourself with a well earned cuppa. - sue Bell
Maybe you could change your name from Annoyed to Annoying. 'Wildly dysfunctional'? Rubbish. You are just repeating the mantra. Write something original. You are a bore. - Dianne
