dictum puellae

theabbottchronicles:

The Coalition wishes to continue with the bill that would force people to wait 6 months before getting unemployment benefits despite the fact that a report found that such a bill would violation Australia’s human rights obligations.

Ewen Jones, backbencher and suspected lizard, said that it was kinder this way because otherwise poor people would just be lazy.

"If we don’t violate human rights and actually help people in unfortunate situations instead then they’ll just sit around eating junk food. Why else would they be poor if it weren’t for a desire to do nothing? Poor people are so privileged. We need to stop making being poor such an easy and comfortable life choice."

Instead of commenting, Tony Abbott has referred this claim of human rights abuses to the department of “you keep bringing this up and I don’t understand why you think we care” or Dep of YKBTUAIDUWYTWC for short, which deals specifically with human rights violation issues aimed at the Liberal Party and is one of the few instances where Tony has created new jobs.

Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2009//Would I Lie To You S08E03

theabbottchronicles:

A fascinating article about how the deficit under Liberal’s power has increased, despite claims that Labor’s deficit was spiralling out of control into the fictional budget crisis, has reached higher interest levels than Labor’s estimated would be interest had Labor stayed in power, their reckless spending, and how they’ve discontinued monthly reports on this information (perhaps to cover it up so people don’t realise how poorly they’re doing). It’s almost as if everything they attacked Labor for they are even worse at. Wait no… that’s exactly it. That’s the exact conclusion to take away: that the Liberal party is one big ball of hypocrisy. There’s so much summarised in it so please do read it.

I want to exist with you. Let’s make traditions and spend hours wishing we were together each time we’re apart. Friday nights should be spent on ice cream dates and getting lost somewhere in town. Hold my hand when I feel scared. I’ll listen to your heart beat in sync with the rain, never forgetting it’s slow and steady sound. Wake up on Saturday morning with me. Let’s watch the sun begin to rise, only to fall back asleep again. I will surprise you with every chance I get, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do. I’ve existed all along on my own, but I would rather exist with you.
