The challenges of life are such that we as creatures of habit will react according to our instincts to survive under difficult and at times insurmountable odds. A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on: Some people are born gutless cowards
I often wonder about those who have nothing to fall back on and find delight in attacking others without conducting their research, shifting the deception of fake news misinformation, down right lies and yes of course let us not forget myths. Where is the real of Australian of today? I will tell you where they are! It is because those who had the guts and determination to make this country great have been muzzled, suppressed, intimidated, threatened, bullied, psychologically stressed, exiled, silenced, fallen on their sword, ostracised, relocated or dead. Having stated this, I wonder at times just who the real gutless cowards amongst us are. Is it the politicians or the consultants who fawn over their paymasters?
Political miscreants. Those in the political world seeking a political career, favours and other delights, in my view are the greatest spin doctors we can ever face. I refer to those political sycophants, cake whisperers, moronic lobbyists, propagandists, the placard bullies, sexual deviants, intimidators, predators, power hungry misfits and those who aspire to high office.
We are currently governed by very foolish people who should know better. Take for example the current Premier of Victoria who said he will “put people first” on being elected. I think that he erred somewhat, I think what he was trying to say was “putting people money first” (tax payer) and such help pay for the rorts that he is being accused of.
Then we have the political sycophants seeking high office who will fawn over past premiers and seek favours from them. They will attend functions and attack anyone who disagrees with them and tries to shame them using the keyboard as a weapon and placing their political filth on social media. Daniel Andrews and his team are the real cowards who are not fit to govern this State.
Their left leaning socialist supporters and unionists are worse because they will attack, intimidate, bully and yes even go as far as confronting their opponents face to face, or contact them via their communications devices. As far as I am concerned the politicians don’t conduct any real research at all but depend on whisperers, any wannabee political weasels for their information. These are the gutless wonders of this world who have not intestinal fortitude at all, no life experiences and yet they turn up at the doorstep expecting political handouts. You weak bastards the lot of you.
Consultant Sycophants and Lobbyists. This bunch has much to answer for. They go to university and obtain a degree or higher qualification with the aim of a cushy job. Yet they have no life experience whatsoever and are placed in responsible positions of power, influence and leadership positions. How can someone who goes to University be placed in a leadership position without leadership or management experience, training and mentoring is beyond me. What are they there for in the first place may I ask? Ideas and concepts based on what they have learnt at university. How many are now consultants for politicians I wonder and that is the question we should be asking.
Please, spare me the academic manure! I am of the opinion that these academics use the energies of others to do all their hard work of research, find solutions, create concepts, and do the work behind the scenes in order to meet key performance indicators and other silly performance activities and reports which end up in someone’s laptop not to be used. These same people are employed by politicians based on the alleged experience, knowledge, skills and expert opinion. What a joke. We the tax payer have to put up with such incompetence is beyond me.
Great Australian Examples. Mind you, my comments above are dedicated to the political lefties in our society who fit the bill and unfortunately it is those few who let us the Aussie tax payer down. I say this with all honesty because I want nothing but a bright future for our nation. I will give you an example of what it means to be a good Australian and yet people have two different pints of view.
Take for example Jeff Kennett, a past premier and the current President of the Liberal party in Victoria, Michael Kroger. These two blokes differ on what is the best way forward regarding the Liberal Party in Victoria. Yet despite their differences, they are both great Australians. One served not only wore the uniform of Australia, but went on to become a great Premier following in the footsteps of his mentor The Great Bolte of old.
The other became a very successful Merchant Banker, great mates with the greatest Treasurer we had, Peter Costello (relationship now broken), became President of the Liberal Party at an early age and restricted for that other great Australian, Ted Baillieu (another Victorian Premier). What all these men have in common is that despite all of their differences they still put Australia first. Nothing like the Greens leader Richard Di Natale who made enormous strides in stupidity by calling one of our generals Jim Nolan a war criminal and calling Peter Dutton a racist. Di Natale’s career of integrity has just vanished into thin air.
Now I am may appear harsh, but I stand by my comments. As much as I admire these bastards, I will still criticise them in a constructive manner. It is who we are. It is in un-Australian in my book to stand by and do nothing. I grew up in an Australian environment where a spade was a spade, we fought the good fight, stood up for the little Aussie battler, helped one other, never let a mate down and always confronted our responsibilities and challenges of life.
We sang God Save the Queen at school, we embraced Australians values, barracked for the best team (St Kilda – That will set the cat amongst the pigeons), played footy, went to dances, smoked, drank, fought amongst ourselves and when called upon, served the nation in time of need. Life is tough folks, but it is only tough if you don’t put your hand out and ask for help. Life is tough if you don’t speak up. Life is tough for those who cannot communicate. Life is tough for those who are stuck in wheel chairs, in hospital, ill, in age old homes, in retirement villages, homeless and fallen on tough times.
Yes life can be tough and that is why it is so important we elect good leaders to govern us and share the resources this nation has to offer. If we don’t, I can guarantee readers that those who are gutless and think only of themselves will share the same plot of real-estate when it’s time to go and the wealth and prestige will be all for nought. If I were Labor supporter I would vote against the Daniel Andrews government and let Matthew Guy a crack at governing this great state of ours.
Therefore those who want to help the disadvantage people within our society, look deep within yourself and get to know just who you really are before you too join the ranks of gutless. That was being an Australian to me, none of this pussy footing political correctness and gutless wonders we have in power, putting people last. If those in power today are for the people, put the people first, use the resources well, mange the states funds equitable and govern this great state in a reasonable fashion then maybe they deserve to be re-elected.
However, this latest attempt to cover the rorts is unforgivable by the Daniel Andrews Government. They are the real gutless cowards in our midst. The sooner Matthew Guy and his team win government the better. Only one had the courage to stand up to her leader and that was Garret, She has been quoted as saying: “I love my job. It’s been a bit rocky lately but I love my job and I love representing the community and I’ve got no plans to go anywhere.” Even though her politics differ from mine, Jane Garrett in my eyes is a true Australian and gets my respect. Something that the Daniel Andrews and his government have consistently failed to do.
Apologies to those who feel that I am masquerading as journalist. I guess I am just one of those Aussies who has given his all to his adopted country a place he calls home. Australia. I am not the demon that some have painted me and I am certainly not the sycophant that some are led to believe. I say to those gutless cowards to find their own words to describe me and may be, then maybe I will have respect for them. But until then they remain gutless cowards that they are. I also apologise for my savagery of the English language, after all I was born a peasant and learnt everything I know from my brilliant mentors this nation could ever offer.
I love this country (Australia). I have travelled throughout the breadth of this continent, met our people, climbed its mountains, hills, flew through the air, waded through its streams and rivers, swam in the oceans lapping its shores, walked through the glens and meadows, trained in the jungles and the deserts, saw it beautiful sunsets and sunrises, fought the good fight, stood up for my mates, never let them down and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise. My message to those critics is “Molon Labe”. A Spartan message sent to the Persians invading Hellas at Thermopylae. Don’t become a gutless Australian. Fight the Good fight and never give up. It is un-Australian to do so and political correctness can be thrown in the ditch as far as I am concerned. I am going to use a postal vote and make it count towards a Mathew Guy and his team win.
