Re: You have to wonder
Perhaps it's about time Australia's citizens to begin looking at who they are voting in to government--and placing a high value on someone who understands technology beyond typing on Twitter.
When you look at the options we get you have a choice between the idiots from one of the two parties that have a chance to form government, who will toe the party line regardless of their individual understanding, and a sprinkling of idiots who have no chance of influencing the outcome but will support whoever will give them the most concessions for their preferred minority view (Yes, I am looking at you Greens). Both of the majors are so under the control of the TLAs that they will give the TLAs whatever they want under the banner of National security, crime fighting or "think of the children".
The only power we have is to keep changing the idiot in control and that is best done by getting their own party to replace them due to "Poor polling (social media rating)". Mind you, changing the idiot in control doesn't stop the stupid legislation getting enacted.
Have a beer, it's the Australia Day long weekend coming up so all of the politicians will be out trying to drum up as much patriotic fervour as they can and hope it will carry them through until the election later this year.
