I’m fed up with a negative government

I am beginning to think Australian politics is looking like the American system. When a vote is required for what ever reason, the opposition will take an opposing view and delay or even stop the acceptance of the vote. In America the medicare system proposed by the President, was opposed by the senate and the … [Read the full story]

Are we de-humanised by the horrors of the world?

A programme I watched on television reported hundreds of birds and fish dropping down dead for no apparent reason. They posed the question is this the beginning of the apocalypse?

Wino’s thought of the day

It’s been a while…just over a year, I think. I’ve been busy. If you call getting into the booze more than usual, then yes…I’ve been busy. Last year I was going on about doing the ‘Dry In July’, and making a video diary and…well, you know, I really wanted to do it. I did try … [Read the full story]

Instead, over the course of the first term, an undeniable … [Read the full story]
