The charade that Western governments believe in free speech etc etc blah blah blah continues, and Bishop is certainly late to the party. As outrageous as the murders of Charlie Hebdo staff were, it is beyond hypocritical for these leaders to shamelessly suggest they actually stand for freedom of expression.
Wow Gallipo-fest 2015 is really hotting up! We got gallipo-surfboats landing at Anzac Cove! Gallipo-fresh foodstuffs! And check out the gallipo-merch available for a short time only!
In which poor Darren explains the subtle differences between a racist and a bigot.
Now that the Australian government forces telcos and ISPs to retain your data, you need to understand what’s at stake and what the tech is. You need to act on this.
Whether you’re Ned Ludd or Ray Kurtzweil, you’d have to agree that the relationship between humans and machines has always been complicated. As Karl Marx said, like, ages ago: ‘Machinery, gifted with the wonderful power of shortening and fructifying human labour, we behold starving and overworking it’… and your futuristic smartphone changes nothing.
Now that the Group of 8 universities have withdrawn support for any further compromise on Pyne’s higher ed legislation, he’s moved on to easier things like fixing weaknesses in a Death Star… with the same degree of success I’m sure.
Ok everyone, it’s serious. We need direct action: the data is in and these LNP brain farts are going to kill us all!
“Ah fixed it, ahm a fixer”.
As many have noted, Tone has really upped the prime-ministerial flags in his pursuit of ‘good government’ (sic). Hawke and Keating didn’t need any, Howard waved a couple and Rudd-Gillard kept them… but Abbott has taken it to the next-next level.
CTOE co-founder, serial internetist and satirical web video aficionado Eriku Mucktrucka has gone missing. Having last had contact with the CTOE site on February 11, he is presumed to have fallen prey to one of his arch nemeses: PS5, beer and/or Mossad.
How do you pick a new captain when the team, the opposing team, let alone the whole sicksad game, is a bit shit?
Time moving waaaay too slow at work? Upset by the 24hr media cycle? Amazed at the rate of technological development? Why hasn’t that toast popped yet?!!!! Take a deep breath, puny human, set aside an hour, and behold the vastness of the cosmos.
As a prelude to Gallipo-fest 2015, this year’s official commemoration of the invasion of the continent will dial up the cringe-factor to 11… and the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders will again largely be whitewashed.
Israelis are having a hilarious time mocking their prime minister’s visit to Paris, after Hollande ‘asked’ him not to come but he turned up anyway. ..
If you’re looking for relief from the endless ritual humiliation/reality cop show that is free-to-air these days, remember that SBS and NITV have given the public what we want.
Satirising a minority religion is not the same thing as poking fun at the pope in a majority christian country, as John Cleese’s clone points out.
Did anyone in Paris and around the world really think this gang of various hypocrites, psychos, elites and evil-doers would be at the forefront of anything progressive?
