BEWARE THE IDES OF MARCH????
this cartoon is a direct response to the unsurprising leftist bias and dribble of the ABC and it’s unbalanced Monday night panel show called Q and A! featuring our illustrious leader Juliar Gillard.
If you missed it or want to see it all again then go to this link for episode #6:
Q stands for questions and as always most of the questions seemed almost as scripted as the hand picked leftist audience was. Laurie Oakes ( journalist of some note ) even twittered in with a comment ” Agree or disagree with her , she did an impressive job” I am paraphrasing but it was something like that.
A is for answers and as usual and as Laurie implied, she did an impressive job of NOT answering the questions directly but did admit to lying to the public pre-election, but that’s okay because Juliar has redefine the word LIE to now being a misunderstanding between the definitions of an Emissions Trading Scheme , which she promised the voters apparently and a Carbon Tax that the Greens deal was all about.
She and Tony Jones managed to get a nice dig into Talk Radio and all the shock jocks making us idiot puppet like people angry. Well, what do I have to say about that. You know it’s rubbish as does any thinking person. We must really have them worried now. Can I suggest you get down to the local newsagents and pick up the latest copy of the Spectator Magazine, not just for the great cover art but for the brilliant and incisive piece on your Talk Radio and the attack on this bastian of free speech.
I guess the TEA Party movement must be starting to concern her a bit also, because she mentioned them a few times, unflattering of course and like Joe Hockey was in denial that they really do exist in Australia, WRONG AGAIN JULIAR.
This episode will come back to haunt Juliar in years to come as even she can see that the people are not as dumbed down as she and her party of social engineers think and that when you tell a LIE it will always come back to bite you on the bum.
As for the ominous warning, “Beware the Ides of March,” it originated with the Roman ruler, Julius Caesar, who was assassinated on the Ides of March – March 15, 44 B.C.E.
In the ancient Roman calendar, each of the 12 months of the year had what was called an “ides.” In March, May, July and October, the “ides” fell on the 15th day. In every other month, the “ides” fell on the 13th. The word “ides” is derived from the Latin: “to divide.”
The “ides” were originally meant to mark the full moon – but since solar based calendar months and lunar based months are of different lengths, the “ides” quickly lost their original intent and purpose.
History lesson over, just download it, listen carefully to her and I am sure you will see what I am on about.
