The lucky stroke crippled me and gave me a new life. Now I'm just unbelievably good looking and modest. Always turn a little to the left.

IS THIS AUSTRALIA? WHY AREN'T WE HAPPY?
THIS DESPICABLE MINORITY GOVERNMENT
(as described by the opposition)
HAS IN THIS TERM OF GOVERNMENT
Have every bill submitted to parliament passed(many with the agreement of this same opposition)
Growth 3% (and has been for 22 years)
A Carbon pricing system
National broadband being built
National disability scheme starting
Paid parental leave
Plain packaging for fags
(The world is envious, why wouldn't they be)
Compare this Australia to the economic trauma in Europe or the sluggish recovery in the US.
Yes this government can claim credit for our rude economic health, for without its stimulus package we needed so desperately, in response to the global financial crisis, we would likely be in a different place.
I'm afraid our alternative government would have reacted much differently to the situation, how do we know, because they repeatedly tell us they would not have stimulated the economy, they would have had us in the same position as Europe.
They say they are better money managers, I wonder, I really do.
Maybe I'm dumb, but if this country has managed maintain a growth rate of 3% for the past 22 years the present government hasn't done to bad.
The fact that much of this has been done while we have had a minority government, in the face of a relentlessly negative opposition and almost libellous personal attacks, only adds to its achievements.
WHY AREN'T WE HAPPIER
1. THE NEGATIVE OPPOSITION IS TELLING US EVERY DAY.. HOW BAD THINGS ARE.
2. MOST OF THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS IS SAYING THE SAME THING, OVER AND OVER.
(You know what they say, if its said often enough people will believe it.)
WAKE UP AUSTRALIA IT'S STILL A VERY LUCKY COUNTRY.
By the way when you pan for gold you throw away a whole lot of rubbish, I suggest we should keep this in mind when listening to parliament or reading the newspaper.
