The PM is obviously not talking about his own morality?

 


PM Morrison said.

"Seeing the inherent dignity of all human beings is the foundation of morality," he said.

"It makes us more capable of love and compassion, of selflessness and forgiveness.

"Because if you see the dignity and worth of another person, another human being, the beating heart in front of you, you're less likely to disrespect them, insult or show contempt or hatred for them, or seek to cancel them, as is becoming the fashion these days."

Refugees have been cancelled haven't they???

Which planet are you on Scott Morrison

 

Scomo????

"Let me tell you what I have heard. Women are too afraid to call out bad behaviour for fear of losing a job or being intimidated in the workplace .

Women who are afraid to walk to their car from the train, and they carry their keys in their hand like a knife for fear of being attacked.

I have heard that women are overlooked, talked over by men, whether it is in boardrooms, meeting rooms, staff rooms, in media conferences, in cabinets, or anywhere else.

I have heard about being marginalised, women being intimidated, women being belittled, women being diminished, and women being objectified."

What planet has Scott Morrison been living on. "I HAVE JUST HEARD" This is total crap, he knew and he ignored it, like many others. "I KNOW NOTHING" says he. 

Paulines birthday 2021

 


Happy birthday My Pauline

You’re a very special person

When I wake I know

You’re close, oh so very close to me

You make everyday start with a smile

I share each day with someone who really cares

Being the other “half “well it makes us “one”

Through good and bad we’ve had a laugh

Oh, and I’m so glad you’ve stood by me

Your loves special and it’s just for me

My love for you still grows with every year

Now it’s another, it’s your birthday again

Each year now our love becomes more precious

Happy birthday my darling, my best friend, my buddy 

For my special person

“My Pauly”

Who will we blame if we have more anti-vaccer's.



 In Australia, our PM and the Coalition are mute, this gives implicit permission for whacky conspiracy theories and misinformation about the coronavirus and vaccines to be spread by backbenchers — who take their strategies straight from the Trump playbook

These same leaders spend their time and taxpayers' money insisting that public confidence in vaccines is crucial.

Why on earth aren't these people gagged for creating doubts about vaccines. Who is really in control of the Coalition?

 

A living wage, is it stupidity or a necessity. The push for lower wages is a step to far in 2021!

 


Flat real wages are diminishing our sense of shared prosperity. The lack of real wage growth is one of the reasons why some in our community question whether they are benefitting from our economic success.

A similar thing has happened across most of the advanced economies.

People around the world have diminished trust in the idea that the policies that have underpinned growth over the past 30 years are working for them.

“They feel more uncertain about the future and, in Australia, are also having to deal with very high housing prices.

Diminishing trust in the idea that living standards will continue to improve is a major economic, social and political issue. It is in our collective interest that this trust is restored.”

Unfortunately, there is no sign of the Morrison, and the Coalition in general being committed to restoring that trust. 

They have argued against every wage rise for years. Their mantra "Low wages more profit". Trickle down economics, that's been tried.  It doesn't work, its broken! 

The government hasn't learned that investments now more than ever can land anywhere. They don't necessarily always result in Australian jobs.

Bulls aren't to blame for this stuff! Politicians have perfected it and make lots of it! What is it?

 Fake news has taken over!

In recent times, politico-media bullshit has taken on a more subtle savoir-faire. Often defined as “fake news”, no effort is made to mask the bullshit and make it stick because it proliferates on all sides of the argument – the physical and the virtual.

Fake news”, or call it what you will, in its unadulterated form, fake news is fundamentally bullshit. And as strange as it seems, research indicates that we have become more intrigued by bullshit than we are by the truth. 

Truthfulness has never been counted among the political virtues, and lies have always been regarded as justifiable tools in political dealings…. Hence, when we talk about lying … let us remember that the lie did not creep into politics by some accident of human sinfulness. Moral outrage, for this reason alone, is not likely to make it disappear.”

Personally I prefer the unadulterated version, if its shit say its shit. Why should we blame the blameless bull.

"To make my point" If we were to follow a herd of politicians, there would be mountains of the stuff.

The Cold Dead hand of Peter Dutton is all over this legislation.

 Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton introduced the Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2020, “it will shine a light into the darkest recesses of the online world and hold those hiding there to account”.

The Bill is the latest in an ongoing push by Home Affairs to expand the powers of its agencies with little regard for safeguarding citizens’ civil liberties and human rights.

This Bill is really concerning, but in the context of the powers that Home Affairs has been seeking for these agencies it’s extremely concerning.

While the announcement of the legislation focused on extreme crimes such as terrorism and child sexual abuse, there are few checks and balances in place to protect citizens from overreach.

"Have the law enforcement agencies put enough safeguards to protect groups that are already marginalised by these sorts of investigations? No, they haven’t.”
