"Please sir, I've left my glasses at home, can you tell me the time the next bus leaves?"

"Sure, reading the timetable" I said "9.15".

Leaving I thought "Poor bugger, he's obviously illiterate, and using the no glasses line as a prop".

Last Saturday

Holding a carton of eggs, patting myself down to no avail, "Mate, I've left my glasses at home, can you tell me the use by date?"

"9th October" he repied.

I'll bet pounds to peanuts he left thinking

An otherwise intelligent, yet virulent ani-Labor, forumite inferred on the Broadband thread that because Tony Windsor doesn't use a computer he shouldn't have an opinion on the NBN.

I've yet to see Miss Mexico, the new Miss World, while she's nude, but I'll bet pounds to peanuts she would be a pretty sight.

What is it with Tony Abbott's swagger?

Is he trying to instil confidence in his troops, or do his nuts hurt from his latest bike ride?

Just like little Audrey, I laughed and laughed and laughed.

Ian "Well, Julie, you're out on your bony arse: Andrew wants your job."

Julie "Have you got the numbers?"

Macfarlane "Andrew says he has."

Bishop "50% plus one?"

Macfarlane "Yep"

Bishop "50% plus one of 90+ Members and Senators?"

Macfarlane "Yep"

Bishop "How many have you got?"

Macfarlane "30"

Bishop "Thank God we didn't submit our spending promises to Treasury for their costings scrutiny."

I'll tell you something for nothing: I wouldn't be a League or Union goalkicker for all the tea in China.

Because they are so good these days, albeit with a few advantages over the old guys, they are expected to kick goals, from left right or centre.

It would be different if they gained their place in the side because of their kicking ability, but 99 out of 100 times they do the kicking because they are the best kickers from the players selected to play.

I feel so sorry for Birt and Croker.

They feel they have cost their teams the games.

No matter what anyone tells them, they won't accept what they are told.

They will still blame themselves.

I know.

I still feel guilty for missing a field goal, from right in front from dummy-half, which would have won a grand final, and that was before Simms turned field goals from dummy-half into an art form.

I feel as guilty as hell.
 :shy:
It's about our esteemed member Jim Pike.

Jim , obviously thinks long and hard about what he posts.

Some of what he posts I agree with.

With some I don't.

But, and this brings me to my guilt feelings.........My eyes glaze over on many of his posts.

I don't finish reading some. :shy:

I remember I suggested he use a few space bars when he was here on another nic.

And it sort of had some effect for a while.

Maybe I'm on my lonesome on this one? :shy:

Aficionados of Queensland Racing are probably saddened to hear that Doubledee will no doubt be too tied up with his filing activities here to help with them with their punting endeavours.

Some of us have our.... ummm - how shall I say this?...ummm... daily movement early in the morning as part of our morning ablutions.

Others, first thing before we start work.

Footballers, when they see a welcoming shoe, cafe table or hotel corridor.

The rest, when the urge strikes during the day.

My guess is that, for this current parliamentary term, both Labor and Coalition whips will encourage , under pain of political death,the members of their parties to adopt a disciplined regime rather than leave it to the call of nature.

"Bog on your own time" will be the new clarion call.

I was at the pub today and overheard this conversation.

Authorized "Well, what have you got planned for my well-bred entire?"

Trainer "I'm looking at a 3200 metre maiden at Parkes."

A "No way, I've told you how well-bred he is".

T "doesn't matter, he can't run out of sight on a dark night".

A " He's the third cousin twice removed from a runner-up in the Arc, I've got big plans for his stud career"

T " He's a dromedary, he's had 35 starts and never beaten a runner"

A " I know more about racing than you'll ever know, you couldn't imagine the number of Euro racing websites I
access"

T "okay, where does he go?"

A " He goes to the Cox Plate, I'm the owner, I decide".

T "Okay, who do you want me to sign up to ride him".

A" The very best"

T " Beadman?"

A "No"

T "Dettori?"

A " No, me"

T " But you're as fat as pig."

A "I'll declare 80kgs over."

T "Right, you pay the bills.........hang on, you don't....I want the $20,000, you owe me or he goes to the doggers."

A "Bugger."

Re this issue of Bikini Racing.

It's all about one thing.....tits.

Well, maybe that's two things, but seeing that no grammarians are on my twitter account there's no need to worry about that.

The thing is that females know that males, most anyways, are interested in them.

And once their own begin to droop and sag they want all others to do the same.

They want droopy and saggy boobs to be de rigeur.

They are threatened by those with pert ones.

Ergo......they don't want Bikini Racing

I'm not big on copying and pasting others' opinions, but in this case I'll make an exception.

A note to Tea Party activists: This is not the movie you think it is. You probably imagine that you’re starring in “The Birth of a Nation,” but you’re actually just extras in a remake of “Citizen Kane.”

 
Fred R. Conrad/The New York Times
Paul Krugman

Times Topic: Tea Party MovementTrue, there have been some changes in the plot. In the original, Kane tried to buy high political office for himself. In the new version, he just puts politicians on his payroll.

I mean that literally. As Politico recently pointed out, every major contender for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination who isn’t currently holding office and isn’t named Mitt Romney is now a paid contributor to Fox News. Now, media moguls have often promoted the careers and campaigns of politicians they believe will serve their interests. But directly cutting checks to political favorites takes it to a whole new level of blatancy.

Arguably, this shouldn’t be surprising. Modern American conservatism is, in large part, a movement shaped by billionaires and their bank accounts, and assured paychecks for the ideologically loyal are an important part of the system. Scientists willing to deny the existence of man-made climate change, economists willing to declare that tax cuts for the rich are essential to growth, strategic thinkers willing to provide rationales for wars of choice, lawyers willing to provide defenses of torture, all can count on support from a network of organizations that may seem independent on the surface but are largely financed by a handful of ultrawealthy families.

And these organizations have long provided havens for conservative political figures not currently in office. Thus when Senator Rick Santorum was defeated in 2006, he got a new job as head of the America’s Enemies program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a think tank that has received funding from the usual sources: the Koch brothers, the Coors family, and so on.

Now Mr. Santorum is one of those paid Fox contributors contemplating a presidential run. What’s the difference?

Well, for one thing, Fox News seems to have decided that it no longer needs to maintain even the pretense of being nonpartisan.

Nobody who was paying attention has ever doubted that Fox is, in reality, a part of the Republican political machine; but the network — with its Orwellian slogan, “fair and balanced” — has always denied the obvious. Officially, it still does. But by hiring those G.O.P. candidates, while at the same time making million-dollar contributions to the Republican Governors Association and the rabidly anti-Obama United States Chamber of Commerce, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which owns Fox, is signaling that it no longer feels the need to make any effort to keep up appearances.

Something else has changed, too: increasingly, Fox News has gone from merely supporting Republican candidates to anointing them. Christine O’Donnell, the upset winner of the G.O.P. Senate primary in Delaware, is often described as the Tea Party candidate, but given the publicity the network gave her, she could equally well be described as the Fox News candidate. Anyway, there’s not much difference: the Tea Party movement owes much of its rise to enthusiastic Fox coverage.

As the Republican political analyst David Frum put it, “Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us, and now we are discovering we work for Fox” — literally, in the case of all those non-Mitt-Romney presidential hopefuls. It was days later, by the way, that Mr. Frum was fired by the American Enterprise Institute. Conservatives criticize Fox at their peril.

So the Ministry of Propaganda has, in effect, seized control of the Politburo. What are the implications?

Perhaps the most important thing to realize is that when billionaires put their might behind “grass roots” right-wing action, it’s not just about ideology: it’s also about business. What the Koch brothers have bought with their huge political outlays is, above all, freedom to pollute. What Mr. Murdoch is acquiring with his expanded political role is the kind of influence that lets his media empire make its own rules.

Thus in Britain, a reporter at one of Mr. Murdoch’s papers, News of the World, was caught hacking into the voice mail of prominent citizens, including members of the royal family. But Scotland Yard showed little interest in getting to the bottom of the story. Now the editor who ran the paper when the hacking was taking place is chief of communications for the Conservative government — and that government is talking about slashing the budget of the BBC, which competes with the News Corporation.

So think of those paychecks to Sarah Palin and others as smart investments. After all, if you’re a media mogul, it’s always good to have friends in high places. And the most reliable friends are the ones who know they owe it all to you.

A version of this op-ed appeared in print on October 4, 2010, on page A27 of the New York edition.
