F*ck you too, f*ck-sticks

So I’m having a little trouble finding motivation to work hard for the government this morning.

What an absolute disgrace.

So I’m going to really stick it to them by being diligently unproductive today.

I’ve gotten an extra shot in my gay soy lefty latte, so I’m set for a morning of re-arranging my in-trays, alphabetising my paperclips and spray-dusting my keybort.

That’ll really show ‘em.

This morning on my ride in to work I passed quite a number of comcars.

I found myself checking out all the passengers and realised that if I’d seen Ruddock’s car I probably wouldn’t have been able to stop myself from kicking his rearview mirror off, or punching in his window or something similarly unproductive and no doubt incarcerative (a real word, I promise).

Definition of a career-limiting move, no doubt.


There is no emoticon for the way I’m feeling.

Spend your morning designing one.

Waste LOTS of time.

If there were an emoticon to express how I feel about this, it would literally come to life and with sharp gnashing teeth go after Ruddock's miniscule genitals.

Having said that, I can't say I'm too surprised by this.

The way the man looks, he's half way dead now so a few good bad thoughts from us might tip him over.

well I didn't vote for them.

But I could think of many uses for an emoticon like that...

I totally had no idea that the ACT Government had even been trying to get new same-sex legislation through Parliament. Sure came as a shock to learn that Ruddock already decided that they weren't worth being considered a law even before they had been passed.

How ridiculous this government can be.

Is mouthing off at Ruddock how you ricked your neck?

This is from his reply to my abuse last year on this issue:
"The Government does not believe that same sex relationships have the same character as marriages and therefore considers that they should not be given the same legal and community status as marriage."

My friends, TheMuriels.blogspot are pregnant and it pisses me off that my slag cousins can marry, divorce, shack-up and dump kids but two ladies who've been together for nearly 14 years can't marry because of this pile of ratdroppings of a government.

Sorry for the blog post in comments but it narks me.

Jah Teh - are you serious? They actually wrote that?


I don't suppose the response included any elaboration or defence of that position.

That's it.

I'm not going in to work tomorrow.

Stupid laws and ideas on gay marriage aren't limited to Australia. And maybe this sort of a response would work here.

JahTeh said...

"The Australian Government believes overwhelmingly in the institution of marriage and, in 2004, acted to define in legislation the common understanding in our community of marriage, which is 'the union of a man and a woman, to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life'. THE GOVERNMENT BELIEVES THAT THIS DEFINITION REFLECTS THE VIEWS OF THE MAJORITY OF THE AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITY. (my caps)
This was from a two page reply, October 2006. My email to Christopher Ellison about the ACT civil unions act, was passed to Darth Ruddock and he even signed it with a real pen, I checked the indentation on the back of the page. You could have knocked me down with a feather. They've never had a poll so how do they know this reflects the majority view?

comicstriphero said...

Wow - I didn't know the living dead could command control of a writing device.

Shows what I know.

It is unusual. Many Ministers only sign replies to other parliamentarians or 'VIPs'...

But, then, some also have 'auto-signing' machines, that use a real pen...

Solving all the important issues, me.

JahTeh said...

'Auto-signing' machines. Well I'm having it analysed and if it comes up machine, damn we still won't know.
