via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, I don’t give a fuck what your favourite political party is. If you somehow condone what we do with refugees then you’re filth.

via Janetter for Mac

“Australia’s new government, killing fewer people than before. At least in this particular way.” Classy, folks, classy.

via Janetter for Mac

“People” who put “loyalty” to their 18th Century political tribe above basic human decency. Whichever tribe, such people are pond scum.

via Janetter for Mac

Of course what’s NOT funny is that there are “people” who will actually defend the idea of a youth being bashed to death while in our care.

via Janetter for Mac

I actually find it funny when people label themselves according to which 18th Century political tribe they beyond to. So funny.

Well in my part of the world, dear Coalition, the only things that follow a turd are a good long piss and the paper I wiped my arse with.

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile, every single muppet that warms a green seat on his side of the House lets this turd be their “leader”. How noble of them.

via Janetter for Mac

And Abbott worries about wimps. What a pathetic, cowardly, desperate grub. Craving for power, then sweet fuck all idea what to do with it.

via Janetter for Mac

Remember when Abbott told Windsor he’d do anything except sell his arse to be PM? Seems that includes letting 23yo lads get bashed to death.

via Janetter for Mac

You’ve got it arse-about as usual, Abbott. Kill ‘em at sea and the bodies sink and the blood washes away, you moron! Think it through!

via Janetter for Mac

But once they’re on land that’s fine, eh Abbott? Then we can bash the living shit out of them and let them die in a pool of their own blood?

I know you’ve never taken responsibility or admitted to being wrong, Mr Abbott. Fine. You’re a Christian. You know when that’ll happen.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, Mr Abbott, I AM a wimp. A weak nerd. Yet I’ve stepped in to stop people being bashed, despite the risk. Because that’s what humans do.

via Janetter for Mac

According to our PM, a man who professes to follow the teachings of that Jesus bloke, that’s OK. We don’t want to be “wimps”.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s some incisive journalism too: “Goodrem will celebrate her 30th birthday in November. Would she ever consider plastic surgery?”

via Janetter for Mac

On and on it goes, then a shock: “Delta is the new face of Oral-Bs new 3D White tooth whitening range and an ambassador for Mardi Gras.”

via Janetter for Mac

“I’m in my last year of my 20s and I want to make it count,” she says, using the fingers of both hands.

via Janetter for Mac

“I’ve felt like I’ve had to show off those different layers bit by bit over time. I am cheeky,” says Delta.

via Janetter for Mac

“There’s a cheeky, theatrical side to Goodrem she hopes people are starting to recognise,” the article reveals.

via Janetter for Mac

“I get the fire in me, especially when you get to live out the fantasy of what we do on stage,” says Delta. So that’s Zimbabwe sorted out.

via Janetter for Mac

This “tougher, political side” of Delta Goodrem really is quite scary, isn’t it.

@swearyanthony No wonder I can’t sleep. It’s the sound of a thousand Apple software engineers crying.

@swearyanthony Oh FFS. I was going to try to sleep again, but I might as well get a coffee and watch the derposphere implode.
