See multi millionaire Turnbull has given out some big pay rises to his mates. Some of these pay rises are bigger than 1/2 a years wage to some. And they tell these poor buggers they can't have a $10 a week rise cause it's not affordable. But then I remember, Australia is the lucky country.

Same here.  Not sure why you say 'Turnbull'.  All of them, state and Fed and all parties have been doing it.  Kevin

Thats why they do it. They know we're an apathetic mob, they can do what they want and no one will do anything about it.

Didn't Turnbull say that it was to maintain parity with their equals in the Public Service positions?

What ever you can.
I get involved with my union, voice my opinion, protests, educate people in their workplace rights, what ever I feel helps or makes people think a bit more. Talk to mates about stuff they may not know, or think about.
I dont view it as politics, more social activism. Both sides of politics are guilty of crap, but we have a lot more sway over the left.
Unfortunately the system today keeps so many people that busy, and focused on themselves, they dont have a social conscience. An example is cutting overtime rates for those in hospitality. Dont hear anything about it from anyone except organised labor.
The last 20 years, the right has done a great job of disassembling collective labor, and turned us into a society of me's not us.

Somehow we have to make them accountable for their stupidity and poor decision making.
I know they write their own rules.  That's the biggest hurdle.  There has to be some way to get it into the 'Constitution'.
The other bit is, our super has to be the yard stick for theirs. 
They enjoy an unparalleled advantage over the ordinary bloke.

Yep, me too...

I’ve had the ‘pleasure’ of being represented by the one and only Peter Slipper for his whole awesome career.

There was one election (the one before he became a walking headline/punchline) where our local paper asked all of the candidates what they had done to help their local constituents.
The other candidates had a variety of responses, working at state level to get funding for roads, helped secure money for a whole bunch of community services.
Peter Slipper’s reply “I’ve been your member for almost 20 years.” That was it!

He had never taken up a fight for us on any topic.
He just sat in Canberra and agreed with everything his boss told him to do and collected his big fat pay check every week.

After the joke that he made of our political system I was sure voters around here would send out a message that we’re sick of being taken advantage of.
What happened?? They just continued on with the same same and voted in the next muppet on the Liberal ticket.
And the next muppet was even worse then the last one...

If Peter Slipper and Mal Brough weren’t enough to make people seriously think about politics in our area, then absolutely nothing will.

So yep, completely given up on seeing anything change.




No point doing anything other then having a whinge on a forum here and there just to get it off your chest and make yourself feel a bit better.... ;)

Why is it so much cheaper for me to buy a new printer than it is to buy ink cartridges ???
I have a good Brother all in 1 unit here, $40 per cartridge - takes 4.

I had a spare yellow, it said black was out, so went bought black, now says Cyan and Magenta are empty @40ea...

Officeworks has a new printer for $69.00

Hi,
     I went to our local printer cartridge recycle place for their advice for a printer to suit our needs and that they could service and refill.
Very happy so far.
Cheers

I have a HP that takes some pretty pricey cartridges. Last time I got some knock offs from inkstation for about a third of the price and had zero regrets.

My brother tells me that his sperm was the most expensive fluid on earth, suggesting that by him depositing approx 10mls in one load  has cost him at least $100000 what with child support etc.

2 sick kids vomiting and waking constantly through the night. The littlest one started day care last week and immediately starts getting sick from it. Not looking forward to the next 6 months untill he builds up his immunity.

Any sympathetic vomiters, that's real fun, one starts and the rest go out in sympathy. My son is 31 and gags at the thought of vomit. :D :D

My wife is the worst for that. She is an operating theatre nurse. She can handle with aplomb any blood & guts, bowel procedures, any gory injury you can imagine.  But when the kids vomit, she just loses her lunch....
She can't even watch videos of people vomiting... :)

I’d have to admit, I would probably disagree with you on pretty much every political argument but respect that you are not just another ‘uncommitted complainer’

Daughter comes in and says theres a hole in the wall and bugs are coming out of it..
thinking she is sleep walking, i say yes sweety. then she insists she can see them...

CODE BROWN thoughts of all sorts of Shit (I should never have watched so many horror movies as a teen)...

Walk into dining room, theres a hole about 4-5mm in th wall, and a ****in WASP crawling out of it... then another and another.. Like something out of a horror movie...
FARK GET THE MORTEIN!!! WE DONT HAVE ANY.

I started touchin the wall around the hole, and it was spongy for about 2-3inches around the original hole and it got bigger :'( and they started coming out at a constant rate...  :o :o :o :o theres now 30 or more between window and blinds...

Walk outside and theres a small gap inbetween 1 brick with a small chip in it and window (less than a cm) where they must have been getting in, but **** knows how big the nest is and **** knows how they found the gap  ???

Race off to Coles for 8 tins of pea beu mortein, raid you ****in name it..
get home to look inside the window between that and the blind, theres about 50+ of the ****ers..

jam the first tin of mortien into hole outside empty that puppy into it. Nobody shot out which surprised me.
then inside, spray the ****ers that were buzzing around, then she tells me the exterminator has arrived..

Dude tapes up the hole inside, puts on a suit mask and does his Shit, I head up shops to get dude the cash..

The wall was humming for few mins but now has gone quiet. now worried about the rest of the house, but will go looking sarvo when it cools down. 

Great relaxing saturday morning eh....
