LEFT NOT RIGHT

Latest column.

    1. The Right – historically seen as cruel and unfeeling – draws strength from events that, by any objective measure, are positive: peace in Iraq, a powerful economy, and a polar bear in every backyard.

      Beutifully put, Tim, and quite accurate. We are the optimists, they the pessimists.

      I think “a polar bear in every pot” might be an even better phrase, but they probably aren’t very tasty.

    1. Of course, they’d never run a story about potholes here, because that would be off-message for the mass-transit bureaucrats trying to eliminate all transportation funding that isn’t going to massively overpriced light rail systems.

    1. It’s easier for us – we never have to face that moral paradox of witnessing the opposition do something right.

    1. You’ve hit the nail on the head about the left, Tim.  I put it down to a widespread imbalance in brain chemistry, amenable to more efficient distribution of Zoloft or Prozac, or drugs of that nature.  Of course, those drugs generally won’t alleviate ingrained social inadequacies or lifelong beliefs in failed philosophies.

    1. Vexorg:
      If y’all discover the benefits of the “Light Fail” let me know. In the Houston version, I was only able to discern the slight benefit of regularly running down “optimists” who thought they were faster than the train. But other than an incredibly expensive and inefficient gene pool filter, I’ve seen no benefits.

    1. “I’ve got news for Mr Howard,” Rudd said. “The world has changed since Leave It To Beaver.”

      She climbed the stairs that morning
      Found him rather pale
      His eyes they were the color
      Of half-drunk ginger ale.

      Faithful as a magnavox
      Hung up on a song
      She cried down to the breakfast nook
      Ward, there’s something wrong.

      Something’s wrong with the Beaver
      Something’s wrong with the Beaver
      Something’s wrong with the Beaver
      The Beaver I believe is gone.

    1. It has been my experience over the years, that lefties, by their very nature, are usually sad, self obsessed ideologues, who parrot the latest fad lines ad nauseum, have a collective, ‘legislate and be damned’ mentality. They have an insatiable need to get into everybody’s lives with more laws and regulations, telling us how to live, what we can and cannot do.
      ‘My name is Kevin Rudd, I am from Queensland and I’m here to help’. Well, I and a lot of people are very happy, we don’t, need his ‘help’, nor dare I say it, his brand of ‘help’ will definitely not do much for our nation. Things are going great, the economy, employment, our place as a nation on the world stage etc. But, of course Rudd and his ilk see all that and they just have to try and put a negative spin on everything.
      The only people, that slogan will appeal to, are the unproductive, collective nanny state loving drones and ideologues, who think a Government grant/handout is a God given right. We, has a nation cannot afford Mr Rudd’s and his associates ‘help’, so thank you, but NO thanks.

    1. Tim, I think you’ve made a small error in referring to Ward Cleaver as “impish”. Ward was the dad – Beaver (Theodore) Cleaver was the “impish” one.

    1. One more point. What are the ALP going to do about their ‘accolade events’, when ‘St Gough, He of a Dodgy Economy’, finally kicks his mortal coil. Hell, I cannot think of too many Heavenly Deity’s that would attend an ALP conference, although there are probably some delegates who think that they are already ‘heavenly’ and omnipotent.

      To the contrary, bear meat is delicious – kind of porky, but sweeter.

    1. The front door swings open, the hinges squealing like demon hamsters. A weary figure in a rumpled suit walks in, dropping his battered grip on the floor. He removes his fedora and pokes an index finger through the bullet hole in the crown, waggling it a couple of times. The Weary Figure reluctantly decides to clear the debris from the bulging pockets of his trench coat, placing the contents on the small table in the foyer. An inventory of the items would have revealed the following:

      1) One (1) false beard (Babylonian style)
      2) A topographical map of Northern Azerbaijan
      3) A joy buzzer
      4) A bus token from Hackensack, New Jersey
      5) A parking ticket issued by the Nairobi Municipal Police Department
      6) A lavender garter belt bearing the name “Hot Legs Hattie”, stitched in silver thread
      7) Two drink coasters from the Gamboge Parrot Bar and Grill in Singapore
      8) A paperback edition of Pride and Prejudice, translated into Chiricahua Apache
      9) A Magic Eight-Ball
      10) A half-stick of Juicy Fruit chewing gum.

      The Weary Figure shouts a greeting to the wife, who can be heard making dinner noises in the kitchen: “Hi, honey! I’m home!”

    1. The Australian left is more despicable than average. For them it is not about maintaining an oppressed peasant class but about creating one. It is an active aim of the Australian left to impoverish people to ensure a permanent pool of support. The left’s welfare policy is always enough money to suppress the desire to get off welfare while at the same time not being enough to open up opportunities to escape. There is but one way out – membership of the party/union. That was Latham’s ticket, seems to have been Rudd’s too.

      Re the Ward Cleaver error. It proves the point. Only someone of a certain vintage (such as me) or someone living in the past (such as Rudd) recalls all members of the Cleaver family.

      I recall listening to the radio with my boss, a card carrying member of the left-o-sphere. When the first story came on the news bulletin and it wasn’t our story she exclaimed in all seriousnees, “Oh good, an Aboriginal death in custody.”

    1. Whilst the point of the article was so very true, this made me laugh:

      Rudd mentioned at one point that conservatives were “anchored in the past”, a line that didn’t exactly sit well with the rest of Rudd’s nostalgia-loaded speech.

      Even by ALP standards, this was an absolute wallower, including references to John Curtin (five times), Gough Whitlam, Ben Chifley (seven times), Bob Hawke, the great strikes of 1891 (!), Henry Lawson, Banjo Patterson, Andrew Fisher (four times), “the Bretton Woods conference in 1944”, Paul Keating, and someone merely identified as “Watson”. Even Labor tragics sometimes struggle to remember Chris Watson, who was Prime Minister for a few months in 1904.

      Want to take advantage of the promise of a polar bear in every pot but it takes too darn long to cook? Hundreds of pounds of polar bear meat on hand but not enough time? Then you need to buy the latest Polar Atomic Convection Oven®. The 27-cubic-feet PACO® is large enough to take on most any polar bear. And its clean-source nuclear engine not only powers the PACO® and fully cooks an average-size polar bear in 34 minutes, but mimics grilling and leaves the crispiest skin without unhealthy deep frying. When your cupboard is bear, think PACO®, back where you belong. [Note: all service warranties void if used to cook koalas.]

    1. Welcome Back, Paco!!!

      Hasn’t been the same without you. And considering I just put My Chief on the Appalachian Trail Wednesday, it’s been mighty quiet. The others here keep my mind busy, but your presence adds spark!

      185600, missed your return (what a month), glad to see you, too.

    1. Paco! Get your sorry ass in here!
      Why did you not tell us where you were going?
      Why did you not ring, at least?
      Here we are, keeping the place respectable with no help form you, swanning about God knows where.
      (/parental diatribe)
      Welcome back!

    1. The clouds shrouding Mt. Olympus have been cast aside and the deep melodic baritone has proclaimed that Paco has returned.

      and all is well.

    1. Welcome back, Paco.

      Spiny, you can look up joy buzzer on Wikipedia or Urban Dictionary. The UD bit is, of course, not what Paco was carrying.

      A picture of the most likely version found along with Paco pocket lint is here.

    1. Of course it’s not sad that exactly describes the leftist.  He’s rather a product of an ancient formula, soap opera, permanently popular with 40% of women, women who are easily attracted to nightly news geared to their needs.

      James Thurber, in “Irovytown, Rinsoville, Anacinburg and Crisco Corners’’ (The Beast in Me and Other Animals) closes with this characterization of radio soap opera:

      The characters in Soapland and their unsolvable perplexities will be marking time on the air long after you and I are gone, for we must grow old and die, whereas the people of Soapland have a magic immunity to age, like Peter Pan and the Katzenjammer Kids.  When you and I are in Heaven with the angels, the troubled people of Ivorytown, Rinsoville, Anacinburg and Crisco Corners, forever young or forever middle-aged, will still be up to their ears in inner struggle, soul searching and everlasting frustration.

      Because that’s what attracts women.  The left has glommed onto that same attraction, for the same reason.

      Not growing old goes with the permanent immaturity, nothing ever learned, no perverse result ever noted but that it is ascribed to the evil right.

      More abstractly, women are obsessed with perfect love, love beyond the human condition of love (for men it is knowing beyond the human conditions of knowing, which results in various disorders, but many leading to progress), and perfect love is not possible.  Love is more like taking your kids to the dentist, in real life.  You do it because you love them, but it’s not at that point a feeling, but rather a priority, that leads to satisfaction.

      The left hooks into this, which is a good reason not to let women vote.

    1. Perhaps he should run against Kevni in the Federal erection?

      Paco’s an American.  Besides, if he did run, longtime readers will recall that it might interfere with my obsession with dredging Victoria Harbour…

    1. Has anybody yet done a cartoon of polar bears tied to railroad tracks by evil capitalist landlords, with train onrushing?  Coal train, not commuter train.

      How about tied to a log in a sawmill?  Carbon credits for that one too.

    1. rhhardin—Uranium train, especially dangerous to the Australian polar bears…

    1. And here I thought that Australian polar bears were extinct, along with the Giant Hoofed Crocodile.

    1. Am I the only one who finds “I’m here to help” from a politician incredibly uninspiring?

      One: “I’m from the government, I’m here to help” is accounted amongst the ten Biggest Lies.

      Two: The whole “I’m Kevin Rudd…” aside from being nauseating, sounds almost exactly like the campaign slogans from that movie, what was it? “The American President”. Kinda funny, if you can ignore the sound of Hollywood lefties shivering in delight.
