Why does Tony hate science?

By Barcham 8 November 2013 101

Abbott

Under our Dark Lord Abbott’s present public service jobs freeze, the CSIRO look to lose about a quarter of their staff, reports the Syndey Morning Herald.

Thanks to Tony’s plan to cut 12,000 jobs from public servants, the employment of 1,400 non-ongoing CSIRO staff and the research projects they’re working on are threatened. Sadly for these workers with their heads on the block there are no answers for them.

Maybe the Minster for Science could help?

Oh wait… that’s right.

No science minister, no climate change commission, a quarter of CSIRO left to die, the environment minister is not attending the international climate change negotiations in Warsaw, the NBN ripped out from under us… Anyone else feel we are rapidly moving backwards?

What’s next Tony?

How much do you want to bet that by this time next year Tony will have downgraded Medicare so that it only covers the use of leeches and amputation?

Don’t kid yourself you and Johnboy are pretty conventional left of center voters. You like gay marriage, support strong action against climate change etc.

It’s funny you say that. Conservatives generally have little problem identifying themselves as such, especially in the media (ie. Andrew Bolt).

Leftists, on the other hand, don’t appear to recognise themselves. This is painfully apparent in the media, especially the ABC.

It’s centred around a belief their views are “mainstream” because the insular lefty social group (extended to social media) they hang around in all believe the same thing (dissenters are soon hounded out if they don’t conform using the same extremist language like “bigot” and “denier” we’re all familiar with here).

Therefore, they convince themselves are “centrists” – leftists are those people on the fringes who “coincidentally” believe all the same things they do, but are just more vocal and militant about it.

Being ‘left’ of Andrew Bolt doesn’t necessarily make one ‘left’, Mark

How many people do we need on the AGW scare gravy train? Maybe if they produced something worthwhile rather than running around like chicken little, they wouldn’t need government grants to live off.

“They” have, Mark.

+1. Rudd was a bit of a nut, and a nasty bugger to boot.

You’ve fallen for the propaganda emitted by the trade unions and their captive politicians who weren’t happy at Rudd’s attempt to diminish the nefarious and excessive influence of trade unions on Labor Party decision-making.

This is rubbish. I know people that actually worked with him and they weren’t happy little campers.

Not that it matters, he’s gone now.

It matters a lot. Rudd’s left us a legacy whereby the ALP is slightly less beholden to the corrupting influence of unionists.
Who cares if a bunch of lazy pubes got their knickers in a knot from being forced to do a bit more work than is their usual custom?

Yeah, we’re way better off. I wonder how the current leader of the federal opposition got into politics?

The union craziness was managed well by Howard’s government, all Rudd had to do was maintain the status quo. Unfortunately it seems union leadership is again a clear path into Labor leadership positions.

If you knew how Rudd behaved in private you’d know there was a lot more to it than simply hassling some lazy pubes.

At the cost of another by-election for us.

Tony Abbott “stands over women”? How? When?

We know that Kevin was a bully who reduced a female flight attendant to tears and was rude to a lowly makeup lady – although, in fairness, he bullied across a much wider range than that.

I doubt that Abbott’s wife and daughters are “stood over” – if so they deserve Academy Awards. And Peta Credlin is about as tall as he is, as well as being no shrinking violet. So, who are these women?

The sheer malice and vitriol from frustrated Labor and Greens supporters who do not seem to get that the Australian people kicked them out at the last election is, at least, a sign that their disconnection from reality will give Abbott a second term.

These are the people who confidently believed that he was “unelectable”, and are still in denial that he was in fact handsomely elected.

Please keep it up. It’s a tactic that has worked brilliantly so far – although not for you.

Sheesh, the guy is happily married, has a great family, is a fitness nut, helps out regularly with community organisations.

He was also quite upfront with Australia about reducing the public service and government spending in general, during his election campaign.

Yeah, he’s a politician, so you known deals are being done to get things through, and there are always improvements that he could make. But many of the comments here are a complete overreaction.

He’s an aggressive arse who stands over women, tells lies, promotes a morally bankrupt ideology and does the bidding of a foreigner who runs a corrupt media empire that is currently or has recently been the subject of numerous inquiries and criminal prosecutions on account of criminal behaviour in the UK.

Sounds suspiciously like you’re describing Kevin Rudd’s happy side.

No, it doesn’t. You’re in denial and projecting.

Go talk to people who actually worked for Rudd, you might get a different view.

When you get down to, both Abbott and Rudd have shortcomings. Rudd was more of a sociopath, Abbott a bit more of a conservative.

Neither are what I would consider a good choice for PM. What we really need is some new blood in politics.

Why does Tony Abbott hate science?

Because Tony Abbott is a) a Politician; and b) a Conservative.

Contrast that with Science which is a) a-political by design; and b) innately progressive in nature.

Science is the antithesis of Tony Abbott’s beliefs and values. That’s why he hates it.

I’m guessing you must know Tony personally to be able to make this kind of assertion.

Exactly. You’re a house husband. They exist. There are also plenty of working men and women who iron and look after the power bills too.

Tony however seems to believe that it’s just the wives who do that.

Wasn’t there a union/Labor ad during the recent election which showed a woman explaining why we couldn’t trust Mr Abbott…while she did the ironing?

Maybe Labor also think that it’s just wives who do ironing.

And Rudd didn’t reduce a RAAF trolly dolly to tears because he had the wrong sandwich did he….

Oh wait…
