“Ooh ooh ooh! You said I was stupid, and all I did was say a stupid thing. That’s so cruel.” Really?

via Janetter for Mac

This won’t end well, but I’m nevertheless pissing myself laughing.

via Janetter for Mac

@Msloulou77 @cristyclark Besides, are we meant to CONGRATULATE people too stupid or lazy to find out what’s going on before weighing in?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Msloulou77

@Msloulou77 @cristyclark What, and you just worked that out? How fucking slow ARE you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Msloulou77

I am getting really fucking sick of people complaining about things they hallucinate me saying. Learn to read properly, fuckwits!

via Janetter for Mac

These idiots can just shove their straw men up their arses.

via Janetter for Mac

@wgcullen Oh you fucktard! Did you not see my comments about providing support for people with a genuine need, like the unemployed? Arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wgcullen

@Msloulou77 @cristyclark P.S. Of COURSE it was intended to ridicule. Ridicule is a rhetorical technique used to point out arsehattery.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Msloulou77

@Msloulou77 @cristyclark Hilarious! She bought into a conversation without reading first, and I called her an arsehat. Harden the fuck up.

@nessyhill I’m making the bold assumption that each agency had a purpose in mind, and can measure how well they achieved that purpose.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nessyhill

@nessyhill Well, what are they trying to achieve? Setting success metrics is basic project mgt. Govt’s aim isn’t “get Twitter followers”.

@nessyhill @Australia @2011Census @CSIROnews @warrencheetham Why is number of followers the important metric? It’s not about popularity.

Dear Everyone, please ensure your thinking is constrained to whatever political party leaders said today. It demonstrates your intelligence.

via Plume for Android

@cristyclark And for the record, no, I had no idea that this related to some news-cycle PPL thing until quite late. I did say that. Arsehat.

via Plume for Android in reply to cristyclark

@cristyclark I am so very, very concerned that you’re now bored with a conversation that you chose to buy into. So fucking concerned.

via Plume for Android in reply to cristyclark

Right. Shopping time. I think I might buy a big TV and furniture and then complain that the governments needs to pay for my basics.

via Janetter for Mac

@evcricket @niltiac @cristyclark This is quite true, but the chances of that being discussed rationally trends to zero.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to evcricket

@cristyclark I am so reassured by the thought of your vision of parenting being constrained by daily party-political politics.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cristyclark

Remind me to never let @cristyclark be a parent to any of my children, ‘cos once they’re weaned off the breast she’s outta there.

via Janetter for Mac

@cristyclark @niltiac Yeah I’d been under the impression that parenting went for longer than two years. My mistake. Sorry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cristyclark

@niltiac @cristyclark Yeah I should generate some revenue too. But I do find this fascinating… appreciating trying to understand your POV.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac @alexkidman OK, here’s the troll: If a 2-parent 2-child family can’t survive on a single median income, you’re doing it wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac @cristyclark True enough, and that’s sad, but again it comes back to a family making real-world economic decisions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@cristyclark @niltiac Only if you’re stupid enough to believe that it’s only women who can do childcare.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cristyclark

@niltiac Not everything is about providing worker-units for “the economy” and “productivity”. Fuck that. What’s best for your family?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac Yes, so maybe it works out that for a family’s budget it’s better not to pay childcare and have the parents or family do that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

oberonsghost In today’s ten-minute outrage, we discover that the Leader of the Opposition is a closet eugenicist.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 4:01 PM, May 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@alexkidman @niltiac That’s coloured by growing in a poor household (by Australian standards) which had to make actual choices.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

@alexkidman @niltiac Ah. Yes, I guess where I’m coming from is the sense that maybe people can’t have everything, and need to make choices.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

vealmince Can Abbott simultaneously blame the interest rate drop on Labor’s mismanagement and claim rates will always be lower under his government?

via MetroTwit (retweeted on 3:53 PM, May 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@niltiac I find this surprising, given the income levels we’re talking about. Maybe some luxuries need to be shed.

It is slowly dawning on me that all this carry-on about childcare is because Mr Rabbit said something to the news unicycle today.

via Janetter for Mac

@niltiac “Boosting workforce participation” is glorious bureaucratspeak. People with depression not being able to pay rent is really real.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac Well, on that, I find it disgusting that NewStart recipients have to get by on a fraction of the poverty line. Fix that first.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac No, to me childcare sounds like a private matter about how you manage income and expenditure within your family.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

SnarkyPlatypus Tones should have equated women with Black Caviar to accentuate his point.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 3:36 PM, May 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@niltiac I see. Well, my two categories: for-all (defence, education, roads, health); and helping the unfortunate (NDIS, poverty, disaster).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac Oh easy. “Special stuff” is about helping people in extreme or unforeseeably unfortunate circumstances. Needing special help.

@niltiac … and I wonder whether the special stuff is needed, in such a rich country, for anyone outside the lowest quintile of income.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to niltiac

@niltiac Don’t disagree. But there’s two classes of services, those for everyone whatsoever, and those for folks with a need for help…

@leahmac Indeed, the ageing population thing is about everyone, not the politics of “working families” in a rich country “doing it tough”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leahmac

@niltiac I think there’s a big difference between unfortunate, unplanned disability and a decision to start a family with known costs.

@niltiac I’m not sure that a service provided for all, like schools or street lighting, is the same as a handout for some.
