Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

it's in our interests...

Political rhetoric is often sprinkled with phrases like "it's in our interests", or
"it's in Australia's interests", or "it's in the best interests of this country", or "in the interests of the economy", etc, etc.

I've come to realise that whenever a politician trots out one of these phrases, they're peddling highly questionable bullshit which they don't want you to question at all. These phrases are designed to have you accept as "the obvious truth" something which is highly questionable.

It's one of the classic ways they try to hypnotise us into going along with them.

So, dear blog reader, your eyelids are getting heavy... you are feeling tired... you are drifting into a deep, deep sleep... but you can still hear my voice... From this moment onwards, whenever you hear a politician tell you that "it's in your interests", you will feel a sharp pain in your brain, you will sit bolt upright and experience a blinding flash of light, and you will scream in your loudest voice, "Fucking bullshit !!!" On the count of three, you will be wide awake, feeling really good. One... Two.. Three...

"it's in your interests", does this mean changing to betablogger because I'm not doing it.

As for the screaming, I'm a lady, it'll be "Fucking cowpats!!!" thank you.

I'm not changing to BetaBlogger just yet either. Not until they can guarantee a seamless transition. And they can't. It's a dog's breakfast. "Cowpats" just doesn't have the same ring to it... ;-)

It's a measure of one's articulation if one can yell it while pissed.
