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...

I couldn't get Ma to vote Greens but she was okay for voting Labor and it looks like she won't fall off the twig before Saturday so there's one good vote.
Come to think of it, what happens to a postal vote if the votee croaks before the election?

Good show, old girl!!!

If the votee croaks, you'd be forgiven if in your unending grief you forgot to inform them. I doubt their system is sophisticated enough to pick such things up.

Presumably all coalition voters have been starved of oxygen for a while.

If the coalition voters get their way, we'll all end up gasping for oxygen in the end.

And meanwhile, in the Great Global Climate Change Debate, no one is yet brave enough to talk about the two biggest elephants in the phone box: Over-population and rampant consumerism.

However, one leading British climate scientist this week started to let a teensy bit of the cat out of the bag when he hinted at the need for serious changes in our lifestyles if we are to curb global warming in time to avert a catastrophe. The cynic in me says the professional obfuscators hired by Big Money will win out and shit will happen anyway. I trust human nature.

And anyway, we're all guilty of not wanting to crank our lifestyle down to a sustainability footprint rating of 1. Sure some of us are doing more than others and can point self-righteous fingers at others, but in the end that's just more wankery.

Anyone capable of basic economic thinking can figure out that if enough people actually did what it would take to head off the climate catastrophe, the global economy would go bust absolutely. But that's really just academic, because not enough people will do what it would take, ergo, the economy will continue to wobble along like a drunken dyspeptic ogre and the planet will go to the dogs just before we have the mega-wars which will deal with the "population solution".

Hopefully I will be dead by then.

Pleasant dreams, y'all...

I'm Green.
Rudd supporting Gunns has caused Catherine King (ALP Ballarat) to lose my vote.

The two-party system is shit.

You got that right, Anodyne. The two party preferred system is plainly a corruption of the democratic process IMHO. I'd love someone to explain to me why it isn't.

GO THE GREENS !!!
