Dear Senate Estimates, why are you allowed to be an entire fucking generation behind the pace in understanding how the world works?

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Senate Estimates, we’ve had commercial internet longer than we’ve had the GST. Would you giggle an excuse for not understanding GST?

via Janetter for Mac

The third question for Senate Estimates is this: It’s your fucking JOB to understand this stuff to make the laws. Why haven’t you done it?

via Janetter for Mac

The second question for Senate Estimates is this: Why do you think a giggly “I’m a bit of a Luddite” is OK this far into the process?

via Janetter for Mac

The question for Senate Estimates has to be this: Why are important decisions being made by people who don’t even understand the basics?

For every metadata metaphor in Senate Estimates, I think, “Yet another person who doesn’t understand the actual concept itself.”
