But there is evidence from around the world that, actually, the best way to eliminate poverty is to give money to poor people, just as the best way to solve homelessness is to give people homes.

Some quotes from a placard photographed at one of the Reclaim Australia rallies that happened around Australia today:
"MUSLIMS KILL BECAUSE MAHAMMAD TOLD THEM TOO!.....YOUR IGNORANT!"

I am so sick to death of seeing public sentimental/melodramatic displays of grief in the news, over formerly over-priviledged dead male Australian sporting figures, from people who never even met the deceased. So many Australians don't have two cares to rub together for refugees kept in offshore concentration camps or grossly exploited and abused workers in Australian poultry processing plants producing the chicken to make the KFC that feeds their stupid fat bogan obesity problems, but when some famous old bloke in sport wraps his rally car around a tree or meets a nasty fate at the hand of a neglected son or gets killed on the sporting field in a freak accident, it's tears and corny tributes all the freakin' way to Christmas. Choose life, not sport, you feckin' morons!

The online services of the Australian Taxation Office have been a big ugly trainsmash since the end of the last financial year, it appears that Centrelink's online services have been on the blink or closed for repairs since last Friday, I've been told that the federal government's employment services online system has been belly-up and bloating since the start of the new Jobactive regime, and to top it all off, it looks like the MyGov system as a whole is out to lunch. Could the Australian federal government's computer infrastructure be any more useless if it tried?

I hope that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal enjoys the greatest satisfaction from seeing the many good things that will happen as a consequence of his act of generosity. Amazing!
