    We are about to reap the rewards of The Great Dumbing Down. The final frame is a zinger, Mr Dog.

    Agree with Zut. That final frame packs a huge punch.

    The Coalition will stop Justice Stone’s review of ASIO’s adverse security assessments of refugees. So far two assessments have been withdrawn and three confirmed with about 55 to go. If the review is stopped these people will be held in indefinite detention. We might as well fit them with iron masks.

    Let’s not bother with an election. Sub-editors are already correcting journos’ pieces using Prime Minster Abbott. The polls and Rupert have told us the result. Think of the money we would save.

    A group of us are hiding out in the bowels of the Big Pineapple working on a cunning plan entitled “Snatch New Zealand - the utopian blueprint”. Come with us Doggie …we can’t stay here anymore, there’s not enough gas masks for all of us and the stench is growing day by day.

    What are we doing FD? Our collective karma is rapidly deteriorating and we are to be reborn as a citizenry of drooling fools, not homo sapiens but plain old homo saps. The wind sighs, alright. Bring on the asteroid and give another species a go. I’m voting for Bonobos.

    We don’t have justice or democracy anymore. We have one system for the poor great unwashed majority, and “other” systems to “protect” the very rich, big business and some very vocal and politically valuable minorities. We will never have justice or a democracy until everyone gets fair dinkum and gives everyone a fair go. I am sick and tired of helping rich people to pay for a private health system I cant afford to use; No more Mr nice suppository for me. It is always better to give than to receive.

    After all the ticks are in their boxes,
    and the clowns have all gone Fed,
    you can hear the future staggering down the street,
    footprints dress in red.

    And the wind whispers, Tony.

    emc you are a bright star in an otherwise dark sky - shine on, feline friend.
    Must admit there seems to be a polls-apart phenomenon happenin’… but a ‘93’s unlikely

    Brill Toon FD, but I don’t think even we privileged white, middle class/aged, full-time-job holding, National Treasure-supporters-with-functional-frontal-lobes will survive the Abbottoclypse unscathed. We are about to be molested by Murdoch’s monkey, and it is not OK. My only hope is that the preening prefect, having punctured Balloon Boy, goes for a double dissolution, and get’s creamed in the backlash.

    Intolerance, ignorance and pessimism have become the latest national pastime - it’s better to be wrong and in the majority (there’s safety in numbers) than to stick your head up and say enough is enough.

    Limited News Rules (“How to win an election”) - Ta lotz, Rupert!

    When fear Blot’s the sun out, you’re nervous,
    And it’s Halloween too
    And your gravity fails
    And negativity’s what pulls you through
    Don’t put on any airs
    When you’re down on Murdoch Avenue
    They got some hungry trolls there
    And they really make a mess outta you…

    just like Tom Thumb’s Blues.

    In the final frame, the wind would be “soughing” in the trees, shurely?

    The last frame sums up what this nation has become - so sad.

    Dearest Dog, don’t despair. Even though it’s the most rational response. We on your comments page will still have each other, and our bleeding hearts…

    Too exhausted by shame and disgust to even be angry any more. WHAT ARE WE DOING?

    Yes, we are very sad.
