A robo-poem

Can a robot write
My poetry
With plugged in words
Lacking vocabulary?

Or attempts at rhyme
That fail
Like Napoleon in winter
In the hinterland of meaning?

I do not doubt it
I know
Meaning is your meaning
Not mine

And words spew like pages
Too few written
In the calm within the rages
Or the rage within the quiet

My life as a socialist attack dog

Bronwyn Bishop: “”But I do know that there are socialists out there who want to attack free enterprise and anyone who sticks up for it.”

“And I know that socialists, like alcoholics, will blame anyone but themselves, and, whereas alcoholics can damage their own families, socialists can destroy the whole country.”

Daylight robbery

I have spent the past 48 hours examining my bank robbery records.

I travelled to Brisbane recently to participate in a University law reform discussion and to meet students there and on the Gold Coast. As I had to be in Canberra on the Sunday I decided to stay the Saturday night on the Gold Coast rather than incur considerable extra expense by flying back to Wollongong and then travelling to Canberra the following day. This is within the rules provided.

The left attacking pensioners

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?
