That was then

 ‘If we’re honest, most of us would accept that a bad boss is a little bit like a bad father or a bad husband … you find that he tends to do more good than harm. He might be a bad boss but at least he’s employing someone while he is in fact a boss.’  Tony Abbott

This is now

Earlier on Wednesday, at a press conference in Brisbane, Mr Abbott said the refusal to enter into a deal to form government was a ”captain’s call” and challenged Mr Rudd to be ”man enough to do the same”.

In a stinging attack on the Greens, Mr Abbott said the party had ”fringe economic policies” – pointing to their desire to place a levy on banks, increase renewable energy and fix the mining tax.

When asked if it was a mistake to preference the Greens in Mr Bandt’s seat in 2010, Mr Abbott said: ”That was then, this is now.”

So what’s with Abbott’s statement in the debate the other night that he would “restore the work places pendulum back to the sensible centre”? Workchoices is dead and buried, but we’ve got a new name – “Know Your Place and be thankful for a job!”

And as for those Greens. They want to INCREASE RENEWABLE ENERGY??? What sort of loony fringe group are they? No wonder, they need to be put last. Last, behind One Nation, Katter’s Party, the Wikileaks Party, Palmer’s United Australia Party, The Sex Party, The Nazi Party and the Socialist Party.

Increasing Renewable Energy? A Levy on Banks? Fixing the Mining Tax? These apparently are pretty radical ideas. So perhaps we should all write to Kevin and suggest that he should be “MAN” enough to put them last too. And I mean MAN in a totally non-sexist, non-misogynist way. You know, being a man as opposed to being a girl, not as opposed to being a woman, because those shrill feminists will get upset, just like they did when Tony called one his candidates “fesity” and talked about her sex appeal. It’s got so you can’t even say, “Nice tits” without people complaining. I mean, the man was complementing her, so how can that be misogynist?

No, it’s because of loony groups like The Greens that we have to think before we speak in case what we’re saying is offensive, unlike the good old days when workers and women knew their place, and progress was measured by amount of pollution we could produce.

    Engels suggested that the nuclear family was the beginning of Capitalism. Instead of the tribe working together for the common good and sharing resources, the nuclear family collected possessions and wealth to pass down to the next generation. Men became burdened with providing for their family while women became isolated. The man was seen as the head of the nuclear family and the wife and children were expected to show unquestioning obedience, thus preparing them for entry into the workforce.

    By keeping men in debt they would be less likely to risk their jobs by making waves. The owners of the capital made an ever-increasing array of ‘things’ that everyone had to have so no matter how fast wages rose, cost of lifestyle outstripped it.

    A crucial factor in preserving a compliant workforce was to allow them no collective voice and to keep them ignorant lest they realise that without their labour the capitalists had no profit.

    Thankfully things have changed since 1884 when Friedrich Engels published his theory. The date is now 2013 and the planet is a shitload hotter.
