My love of bacon is no secret.
When in Oz recently, I did a spot of shopping, small gifts to bring home to delight my frequent Indonesian visitors.
It seemed unfair to exclude myself from the list of recipients, so I bought one of those bargain packs of bacon, under $AUD 8.00 – here in Jakarta, it would cost three times that, at least.
However, this had one unexpected consequence. When I inspected it more closely there was an advisory saying that, once opened, the contents should be consumed within four days!
Hence, from last Thursday night, until Chinese New Year’s Eve, my diet included bacon with every meal. Bacon sandwiches, bacon with fried potatoes, bacon with noodles!
…I even had gado2 with the yummy meat!
Despite, or perhaps because of this enthusiasm, I always feel a pang of guilt when I diss jihadists as pigs or EuroCommissars as swine.
It’s actually unfair to perfectly good animals. They’re no more dirty nor dimwitted than any other farm livestock.

So I was contemplating a self-denying ordinance on the pig insult ( at least as far as non-jihadists are concerned – it’s SO appropriate for the sectarians!) when I saw that the Abominable Green-Hag, Hanson Young, had hurled the P-Word at another parliamentarian, Barry O’Sullivan, during a discussion on juvenile crimmigrants. http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/you-can-wait-to-be-a-pig-then-sparks-fly-between-senators-at-hearing-into-human-rights-20160208-gmp3cp.html
O’Sullivan shrugged it off, as irrational outbursts are nothing new from this shrew. Interestingly, the epithet ‘pig’ was not ruled unparliamentary, though ‘lies’ soon after was, during this debate on ‘asylum’ anchor-babies.
‘Lies,’ of course, should NEVER be applied to the ABC, not even after their latest ‘error,’ on the same issue.
‘Error,’ now? Does that mean poor and unprofessional journalism?
Or was the Immigration Department’s Michael Pezzullo more accurate when he said ‘ it’s a figment…some media reporting of the asylum seeker issue was “advocacy parading as journalism” and “pamphleteering of an almost political nature“ which bent the facts.‘ http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/abc-apologises-for-error-over-fiveyearold-asylum-seeker-rape-claims-on-nauru-20160208-gmopkm.html
Advocacy parading as journalism? A splendid turn of phrase, Mr. Pezzullo, and it at once conjures up that little ABC jerk’s coverage of the ‘asylum’ liars who smeared the Royal Australian Navy.
- Meanwhile, why doesn’t the ABC’s ‘advocacy’ get real and identify how many of those abused ‘children,’ whom they purport to care about so much, were in fact abused by ‘asylum’ filth on Nauru…
… and demand immediate deportation, or better still the death penalty, for the pedophile crimmigrants.
But that would be a warning to decent Australians against admitting any more adult crimmigrants – and the go-ahead for admission of the anchor-babies would assuredly mean more of the swine…ooops, used that word again!
But then some of them, going on what we know of the swarm in Europe, WILL be jihadists!
