Government Steals From Citizens

September 4, 2006

Despite the $750 million in extortion proceeds they receive each year, the ABC is still on the bones of its arse, to the point where they are reduced to stealing:

I heard a part of Yobbo’s ‘I’m sorry’ speech this afternoon on an ABC radio show on blogging. You’ve hit the big time Yobbo.

The least they could do is tell me when they are going to put me on radio so I can listen in. Tax eating motherfuckers.

A sad end to one of Australia’s most famous entertainers:

THE Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, is dead.

He was killed in a freak accident in Cairns, police sources said. It is understood he was killed by a sting-ray barb that went through his chest.

He was swimming off the Low Isles at Port Douglas filming an underwater documentary and that’s when it occured.

Ambulance officers confirmed they attended a reef fatality this morning at Batt Reef off Port Douglas.

At least it’s fair to say he went out in a way that befitted his life’s work. It would have been even more sad if he died in a mundane fashion.

Update: A photo tribute to Steve Irwin
