Just a quick note to let you all know that we have satrted to upload images to the anagaap gallery. There will be plenty more to come as they arrive on our desk so make sure you keep returning on a regular basis.
I’m all for equal rights and opportunities no matter what gender or sexuality a person is. I believe that everybody is equal. In saying that I do wonder sometimes whether the whole “discrimination against women” is going a little pear shaped.
What prompted me to blog this is an article from the Sydney Morning Herald this morning titled “Discrimination to help car yard seal the deal with women buyers.” The article is about a car dealership in Sydney who have had discrimination laws overturned so that they can hire only female car sales staff at their yards. Their argument is that females are far more comfortable buying a car from a female.
Having discrimination laws overturned in my opinion, Continue reading SEX DISCRIMINATION – IS IT GOING TOO FAR?
It’s an unfortunate result of the Capitalist dominated society we live in – some of us just don’t make it, end up on the streets, sleeping out in the open, living from a backpack or two dollar bag. No food, no drink except that acquired through the generosity of places that provide meals to the less fortunate. No toilets except public or the walls of dingy alleyways and no means to maintain a degree of hygiene. Continue reading IF LIFE DOESN’T GET YOU THE SA POLICE WILL…
in my shower she was a fantasy of all things beauty
a renaissance bride with magic in her warmth
in my bed she was more than I could ever be or satisfy

Now check this dude out. Found him wandering the streets of Adelaide. Why the hell you’d need a comb for that hair is beyond me but at least he’s prepared. These guys looked like they were American sailors and must have been off a ship. Maybe he thinks most Australian women sport 60’s bushes and thought he would carry a comb in case he needed to brusk aside the bush for a clean entry?
Arrest warrants issued to South Australian parents not having paid school fees
MORE than 50 South Australian mums and dads have arrest warrants hanging over their heads – most unknowingly – for not paying their children’s school fees.
The outstanding amounts are as low as $337, in the case of one dad from Encounter Bay.
Victor Harbor Magistrates Court has issued an arrest warrant for the 39-year-old who has failed to pay the money to Victor Harbor High.
He is one of 54 parents with arrest warrants issued against them by SA courts, according to the Education Department. Debts owed by parents to public schools for school fees and material charges currently top more than $1 million. Australian Education Union SA branch president Coreena Haythorpe said parents would be shocked to learn they could be arrested for not paying fees, and schools and the Education Department should be doing more to help them.
Don’t these fuckers have more to concern themselves with other than picking on the very people they push into the lower financial realms of society (ie. lower class), due to their high taxes, higher council rates and fees, excessively growing food and living expenses all at a time when wages are remaining relatively stagnant and have done for some years?
Government cronies sitting at their oak desks sipping tea while on the phone organising to have their Audi’s dry cleaned either don’t understand how tough some people have it or don’t give a flying fuck. Oh well, as long as their is tennis club on Saturdays, golf on Sundays and private schools which receive more government funding than public, they’ll be happy….
I have added this to the Forum as a topic should you wish to discuss it further.
the rain mocks the silence around me with it’s force against the tin roof of the porch
it’s like a beggar screaming obscenities in the middle of a wake, silence pierced where only ever silence was expected
yet no longer is it competition to my pelting and thumping heart
instead Continue reading IRISH BREAKFAST AND THE BALLAD OF THE RAIN
