The left attacking pensioners

January 6, 2017 - 20:55 -- Admin

Got to love how some on the left are lining up with all those right wingers attacking ‘rich’ pensioners. Of course the government won’t stop here.
We are witnessing the dismantling over time of the social welfare system and some on the left are complicit in it in the mistaken belief it is about attacking the rich. Centrelink anyone?

First they came for Aboriginal people
And I did not speak out
Because I was not Aboriginal

Then they came for asylum seekers
And I did not speak out
Because I was not an asylum seeker

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

And so you sleep, quiet, unaware

And so you sleep, quiet, unaware

And so you sleep, quiet, unaware
The gentle rhythm, the flowing care
That takes your hand and pleasures there

That takes the journey to an end
Repeating life to beginning, then

Sing with me in the rain

Sing with me in the rain

I shall stand in the rain
And yell at the clouds
Loudly, aloud
Allowed in old age
The place where rage
Grows and knows,
Knows what?

Not much
Hence the rage
And writing on a page
The words of anger
Of danger that haunts
Our meaning
Meaningless
There is no feeling
No kiss

Will we meet again?

We were walking naked
In the rain
The garden soaker
We held made
Gentle
All of us

You turned to me
Your blue eyes
and blond hair
Entrees to elsewhere
Rodin shaped and
Full breasted
You are woman

The man in me awoke
And the night, real, ended
And I wondered, why?

Prime Minister’s address to the House of Representatives on the Australian Parliamentary and Political Party Commission

Address to the House of Representatives – Australian Parliamentary and Political Party Commission (APPC)

PRIME MINISTER:

I rise to conclude debate on these very important Bills.

They will ensure the rule of law prevails in an industry that is essential to our economic growth and future prosperity.

This legislation was blocked repeatedly by the previous Senate and, consequently, was one of the two triggers for our recent double-dissolution election.
