Rudd and Fraser, pricks?

I watched Hawke at one of his Q & A s at Woodford once and while his body was buggered the mind was still sharp. He was solid on his views, the Woodford crowd almost gagged on his opinion about uranium dumps in Australia.

Gough seems to have had the attitude that he was in the job to make life better for every Australian.

You don't know what you're talking about, like Blowie and Info, yet you think you're above and beyond their levels of wilfull and general ignorance?

I probs shouldn't but I met these people in my former career. Basically as much as Hawkie was adored by the fawning masses, he was actually quite an arsehole unless the cameras were around, though I shouldn't speak ill of the dead. And I've said it before, total fucking cheat on the golf course- ha ha! Howard, is a rolled gold arrogant 'effwit. Abbot sort of innocuous but just something not quite genuine about him. He doesn't hold a candle to his minder Credlin though. At the risk of sound like a misogynist, that is one nasty bitch. Fraser was ok, kinda aloof, look down his nose at you kinda person. As mentioned, Keating is a really nice bloke, genuinely interested in what you have to say. Funny too.

Haven't met Rudd or Gillard so have to reserve judgement.

Not really Dale- I was in a service capacity. I was the operations manager of a very very private Sydney businessmans club. Privy to some back room conversations.

Packer was a member. He was alright.

how about you tell us about your views on china's trajectory and the world for the next decade or two...

otherwise, you are just contributing nothing

Oh man, I have a story about Abbot but I would really open myself up to legal action if I ever put it into print. Two actually, and the second we actually had photos. The next morning someone very powerful walked into the office and demanded we delete them, which we had to do in front of him.

What I can say about the first story was when he was the opposition minister for health and the people he was privately meeting with had nothing to do with hospitals. The second was quite at odds with his 'christian values'.

I hear the door knocking, I think I've said too much...

Btw, don't want to sound like a wanker but met two GG's as well. Billy Hayden and Sir Peter Cosgrove. Both stirling chaps.

Abbott is the most ridiculous PM I've seen and endured in my politically aware lifetime.

BTW imagine the same convo in the UK or especially the US regarding meeting the head of State. Population numbers taken onboard, same hit ratio?

“This is the same Catholic Church which constructed the infamous Ellis Defence under the clever eye of Cardinal Pell, the purpose of which was to successfully enable it to avoid legal and financial liability for the acts of child sexual abuse perpetrated by its clergy members over decades and decades.”

“When, many years later, he tried to sue the church, the NSW Court of Appeal ruled that he couldn’t. The church, it found, did not exist as a legal entity and therefore didn’t employ anyone,”

It’s pretty funny that you’ve taken an ideological stance against a fella who is straight up and down . A bloke who is the ultimate celebrity centrist and who explains their rationalisation for every decision.

It’s telling that you’ve attacked him outright rather than any perspective he’s discussed . It reveals you to be purely opposed to who you think is an acceptable figurehead for the political movement you align yourself with based on cultural attaché instead of rational thought.

In short.....youre a style over substance cultural muppet....no surprises there.

PS You realise you called Joe Rogan a loser ,despite him having the dream job of earning $80M plus editorial freedom and meeting interesting elite people a couple of times per week.....whilst you smash the alarm each morning, before trudging off to your cube monkey, paper shuffling, no - one- gives-a - fuck job at some mid level education union job .

Haaahaahaaahaahaas....you fucken wage slave dickhead.

Baaaaaaaaaaa.....conformist fuckstick. Sheep clown living by the rules dictated to you by fuckwits like Kevin Rudd , whilst he himself does what he wants. Poor deluded , cum- stain , fuck bag ,pen pushing clown.

Go to work, slave.

And then watch Twin Peaks repeats and convince yourself that you’re clever because you understand the unspoken themes !

It's just tall poppy stuff.

I mean how is Joe Rogan a loser?

Seems to have always done what he likes and enjoys, comedy, host, actor, UFC stuff, gets to met and chat with all kinds of people and make millions doing it.

Married to a decent looking successful lady married with a few kids, assume he is happy.

If thats a loser, what does that make us all?

Are we all doing what we really want?...

Personally i think he is just an average all round down to earth guy and thats where his success comes from with his youtube stuff at least, sometimes it's hard to know where he sits politically or on different issues, but still, he seems real and not fake.

If he likes to smoke pot or obsessed with DMT doesn't bother me.

But yeah i get the meme is supposed to clever or funny.

It’s not tall poppy , Indo .

It’s a case of Facto is such a relentlessly, stupidly , irrationally partisan fuckstik that he feels he must oppose anything if the other fake- left hand wringers suggest that it’s “ right wing “ .

Rather than investigate for himself and place faith in his own discernment, he immediately jumps on the bandwagon that it’s unacceptable viewing despite not being able to point to a single opinion of Rogan’s as being unreasonable.

That’s the hallmark of a proper fuckstain , Indo.

Rogan has a great show. His big scary monster shit withwild life, bears big cats etc is retarded. I lived in a Canadian National Park for a few years, lived remotely on the side of a mountain with wolves bears coyotes cougar lynx bobcat moose elk all sorts of crazy animals and always went trail building/ mountain biking with just me and my dog. No gun. So his hysteria about animals does drive me crazy. But I don’t write off all the other cool informative guests he has on because I think some of his hunting buddies are scared kooks.
