    Otto Dix knew the power of a fat cigar.

    What I want to know is were they Cuban cigars, because Cuba is a Marxist Communist Pinko Russia-sympathising enemy of all-that-is-right-and-just-in-the-world. So, if they were Cuban cigars, it means Hockey and Cormann (if those are even their real names!) are almost certainly KGB spies.

    That’s your real story right there.

    They deserve a rest after trying to fix up the mess the ALP has created.

    It must be a total nightmare looking at the mess created by Labor.

    Ah, Kneel … my apology, please?

  7. May 10, 2014 12:28 pm

    l think we can rest assured that `their` cuban`s are coming in thru dfat without the 60%-tax on them that the regular punter has to pay on their smokes.

    “my apology, please?”

    What for?? I have not been around for a couple of days so i am not sure what you are talking about.

    Have you heard we are now going to start taking more refugees from UNHCR camps now the boats have stopped instead of country shoppers like Reza Berati.

    The lives people like you have destroyed makes me sick.

    You should be the one making the apology for all the lives you have destroyed.

    I care about the people we used to take from UNHCR camps until you voted for Rudd.

    Under Rudd we took people with $10,000. Our humanitarian program was sold to the highest bidder under Rudd/ Gillard

    “(It needs more kites.)

    So Labor supporters think we shouldn’t have an air force??

    The Alliance speaks and we must obey or become non-aligned. Picking up quality arms from outside the Alliance maybe dodgy, thinking spare parts in a volatile environment.

    ‘F-35 JSF development is being principally funded by the United States with additional funding from partners. The partner nations are either NATO members or close U.S. allies.

    ‘The United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Turkey are part of the active development program. Several additional countries have ordered, or are considering ordering, the F-35.’

    we shouldn`t have imbeciles thrusting trash-cans upon the raaf without evaluation

    I went back and i think i found what i am supposed to be apologising for. Something about the F35’s.

    Have you heard about the Super Hornetts, TB??? Brendon Nelson ordered them against much abuse by the ALP. They said it was the wrong plane, too slow etc. Tim Dunlop even ran a post about it saying how stupid was Brendon Nelson and the Libs and the ALP said they would cancel the order if elected.

    Well the ALP did win the election, made a lot of noise and then went through with the order anyway. In fact i think they modified the order so we got more Growlers or something like that.

    http://www.theage.com.au/news/national/alp-to-stick-with-super-hornet-buy/2008/03/17/1205602291258.html

    THE Government has decided to stick by Brendan Nelson’s decision as defence minister to purchase 24 Super Hornets, despite attacking his judgement over the deal and threatening to axe the project.”

    The point i was trying to make is that Labor would have ordered the F35.

    Have you heard about the Super Hornetts, TB???

    I’ve even got video of the fkn things flying over my home when they were delivered to Oz!

    And I criticised their purchase AND the original commitment to the JSF …

    The point i was trying to make is that Labor would have ordered the F35.

    But not 58 of the fuckers! If the budget is in such dire straits ???? we need all the money we can find …

    And FYI I don’t blindly follow political parties in the 21st century …

    Once again … BEFORE THE ELECTION no mention of $12 billion for ADDITIONAL F35 JSFs (not to mention the additional ongoing maintenance and training costs) … no mention of a $9 billion “gift” to the RBA (set up to protect the banks – let them pay!) …

    … that’s an additional $21 billion added to the budget by the Liberal Government … and its an ALP mess???? Who cares … BOTH parties are at fault!

    Who do you think is going to “attack” Oz?

    Fiji? NZ? PNG? Indonesia?

    Have you heard of the ANZUS Treaty? You don’t suppose it could be invoked in the event of a serious threat?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANZUS

    And after all our co-operation with NATO (and in two WW) do you suspect they would just sit back and say – yer on yer own lads …

    The F35’s have been a boner of contention from the start – they have NEVER complied with the development program … as was the Hornet …

    Did I tell you that since being pressganged into the army (by a Liberal Government) and discharged (by a Labor Government) and since my son served in the ADF for over 12 years and now with adult grandchildren, I have taken a great interest in military/political history since the 1970’s?

    “But not 58 of the fuckers!

    I think we were going to order 100.

    These things take years of planning . It has got to be in the budget somewhere. Just because the Dept of Defense did not give you a phone call does not mean it is not in the budget.

    they have NEVER complied with the development program … as was the Hornet

    But Labor and the Air Force now praise the Super Hornet. They even converted some into something called a Growler.

    Yes i do know how to use google.

    The point i was trying to make was that after Labor and TB and Adrian and Tim Dunlop et al demonised Brendon Nelson and the Super Hornet purchase, Labor now praises the purchase.

    And Labor would have ordered the F35’s

  23. May 10, 2014 5:02 pm

    ”””””””””the ANZUS Treaty? You don’t suppose it could be invoked in the event of a serious threat?””””””’

    so-called `treaty`z were held by teh-usa and various european countries in the ww1 and ww2 era`s,

    teh-usa dragged its feet in helping to save `their-allies` and preferred to war-profiteer off of them,

    l don`t have any `faith` in teh-anzus treaty, or similar, in the end it would come down to, is it in teh-usa`s interest to `save` Aust as a `free` nation, do as much war-profiteering as possible, or partner with the `invaders` and carve-off a chunk of Aust for teh-usa

    “teh-usa dragged its feet in helping to save `their-allies` and preferred to war-profiteer off of them,”

    So what??

    They saved us anyway.

    “l don`t have any `faith` in teh-anzus treaty”

    OK, but then you say we should not buy any F35’s because we cannot afford them and the US will rescue us anyway.

    Why don’t you ALP deadbeats make up your mind??

  25. May 10, 2014 5:13 pm

    the ALP gave the RAAF around 3-years to evaluate those flying trash-cans, the imbecile Mr-Rabbit has signed-up for 58-untested, Mr-Rabbit sat on that land-mine all by himself, ya`can`t blame Joolya`s lot at ALL, ha-ha

  26. Neil of Sydney permalink
    May 10, 2014 5:22 pm

    And i bet you ALP deadbeats said the same thing about the F111’s. Look up who ordered them.

    I have been told that people in the RAAF do not trust the ALP. Most of our military stuffups have happened in the Army and Navy. Most have been under ALP govts.

    How many Air Force stuffups have you heard about??

    That is because most of the Air Force purchases happened under Liberal govts and they got it right.

  27. May 10, 2014 5:25 pm

    Most if not all RAAF purchases have happened under Coalition govts and those govts got it right.

    Didn’t you say it was the ALP?

    You are losing it.

    The RAAF does not trust the ALP because the Liberal party got it right when they made purchases for the RAAF.

    eg. the F111’s
    eg Super Hornets
    eg every thing else

    Labor Party people are toooo stupid to make the correct choice.

    What a fkn Dickhead … BTW I was always a big fan of the F one double one …

    Why do wankers always try to “out-think, read minds, or put words in the mouths” of people they disagree with … and usually vote Liberal … never criticise the big L … and play with their beads before wandering off to church … is the Vatican issuing these the Liberal Crystal Balls? Or is Rupert franchised?

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    sreb, reminds me of an occasional commenter, “I believe that” … and quite frankly I know from bitter experience that some people have trouble with simple logic … as an example … productivity is often seen by boofheads as simply bigger profit for the company (eg work fkn harder) … with no consideration(or understanding) of efficiency and effectiveness – including their OWN … (eg work fkn smarter) …

    We seem to have a tandem team of boofheads … Kneel & Egg … as blogs go – good value … as knowledge and constructive comments go – absolutely Fuckwittedness© … (wow – a true ©)

    Ignorance it seems – is certainly bliss … you recognised my frustration … ta!

    http://www.canberratimes.com.au/federal-politics/political-opinion/menzies-mastery-seized-the-day-20131129-2yhh9.html

    Late in 1963 there were some major decisions about the air force. The British pressed the purchase of its new fighter-bomber, the TSR 2. But the government settled on 24 TFX planes (later known as the F-111) from the US, notwithstanding that it was at a much earlier stage of development.

    With surprising alacrity Labor joined a very public campaign by British ministers to persuade Australia to reconsider and buy British
