sydney is a great city. pity about the dorks, the philistines and the idiots who give themselves titles to run the place...

crap arch

Now, I am an "artist". I appreciate the controversial and the edgy in most arts. But I hate it when crap is being planned for huge sums of taxpayers cash — crap that is designed to destroy vistas that are not perfect mind you, but there is no point in furthering the damage with deliberate artistic mediocrity...

Of course the artistic impression above is far more accurate than the drawings submitted to the city. But the Lord Mayor wants to be remembered for a giant seagull "Barsch" (perch) with a shape reminiscent of a collapsing one-eyed Macdonald's...

SA Senator Nick Xenophon’s bid for justice for an Australian citizen – who simply wants his passport back – has been rejected by the Senate.

Crossbench senator Derryn Hinch has become the latest politician to be embroiled in the dual citizenship debacle.

The Victorian senator has confirmed that he still holds a US social security card from his time living in New York in the 1960s and 1970s, which could be a breach of the constitution.

there is fake news and there is "stupid news"...

"email"

There is fake news and strange stuff that actually means nothing... If this email is legit, then the business people, especially Felix Sater, who seem to make deals like Tom and Jerry, write like Donald Duck and speak like Sylvester the cat, are idiots. They are also like Scrooge married to the witch in Snow White, and Mr Magoo allied with Al Capone and our treasurer Scomo who said something about the ASIS investigation into the CBA that made as much sense as Popeye with a mouth full of spinash. It did pop my eyes. 

of "negative" positivity and the tanking of religion in the west...

old and new

Why do religious people always believe that people who do not believe in god are thus “negative”? Is atheism a “negative” position in regard to human potential or is it just a plain positive expression that god does not exist? Is stating that god does not exist, excludes my ability to do “good”? What is good? Is it a providence falling upon us from the sky like fairy dust?

Is "good" being our discovery of what we can naturally achieve on this little planet without doing “bad” or hurting something? Here comes Milbank...
