There are BIG problems in the land of Oz. The machinations of the right wing government of Australia under Tony Abbott serve as a warning to other countries considering turning back the clock to a time that never existed in the first place. With daily gaffes, debilitating financial cuts (see Australia’s ending the carbon tax), hostility to its Asian neighbours and restructuring of the education system (cuts and, yes, creationism), the government lives on borrowed time and an election may happen sooner than imagined. Still, Australia is stuck with legislators who are ruining a great nation. It is still stuck with a government controlled by less than ten ultra-rich buffoons, none of which started on the bottom, but inherited their wealth and have the gall to say that the poor are lazy. This will be corrected in the next election, but Australians must still suffer these crooks. And if you think that I use the word crooks lightly, check this little lesson in historical phrenology. http://shanewombat.blogspot.ca/2014/07/mugs-and-shots.html
Wake up folks, everywhere. If a politician stutters like he is the common man, more than likely he is an imbecile. Think of Toronto.
I thank Lawrence Winder for his article and photograph of Shane Wombat. Check out Lawrence's photo website http://www.sitedfigures.com.au. (Frankly, I am jealous of his dance photography.)
