As I dig further and further into this Abbott/Hockey/Rupert budget,
my emotions fight between total awe-struck, disbelieving inertia
and boiling blood, blind, motivating anger.
I watched the Arab spring in my comfort.
I worried about the Ukraine.
I watched Putin and his pecs.
I watched the LNP get into power with their Promises...
Fascism has claimed me right at home.
If you think I overstate my case do some research
starting with the a google for AMGEN. Yeah! It's a Big Pharma corporation.
You will see Tony Abbott wearing their sponsorship logo front and centre.
Know that Rupert has his fingers in the pie and the whole thing gets interestinger and interestinger.
Know that Big Pharma is where Abbott will aim your $7 doc tax...Don't think it will be the CSIRO !!!!!
Check out The Guardian for some top writing about the budget itself.
and at The Conversation see more about this and make up your own mind.
I have hope that we do have reporters and journalists on the side of good.
Still doubt me....Check out the police response for protests tomorrow. Particularly in Melbourne, where the fascist LNP State govt, passed anti protest legislation by 1 vote. Although I hope for peaceful protest I have my doubts.
