Australia’s Carbon Tax: Brought To You By Julia’s Ratchet-Jawed Purveyors Of Monkey-Doodle And Baked Wind

In honour of The Labor-Green Carbon Tax They Promised We Wouldn’t Have, let’s revisit my favourite part of the lecture PJ O’Rourke delivered to the Centre for Independent Studies (@CISOZ) in Sydney a couple of years ago:

America has wound up with a charming leftist as a president. And this scares me. This scares me not because I hate leftists. I don’t. I have many charming leftist friends. They’re lovely people – as long as they keep their nose out of things they don’t understand. Such as making a living.

When charming leftists stick their nose into things they don’t understand they become ratchet-jawed purveyors of monkey-doodle and baked wind. They are piddlers upon merit, beggars at the door of accomplishment, thieves of livelihood, envy coddling tax lice applauding themselves for giving away other people’s money. They are the lap dogs of the poly sci-class, returning to the vomit of collectivism. They are pig herders tending that sow-who-eats-her-young, the welfare state. They are muck-dwelling bottom-feeders growing fat on the worries and disappointments of the electorate. They are the ditch carp of democracy.

And that’s what one of their friends says.

Although no one would ever accuse anyone in Australia’s current LaborGreen government (‘Seriously. Just look at them’) of being “charming”, the rest fits like a glove.



Update: We ask our Australian readers to ‘Just Say No to Monkey-Doodle and Baked Wind’ by signing this petition (5000+ signatures so far and counting) sponsored by Menzies House.  And if you’re on Twitter, please follow & support @MenziesHouse, @NoCarbonTax and Community Organiser par excellence @Tim_Andrews. Cheers.

    Shelley at “The Punch” linked to this, I have to say, “This one is going straight to the pool room”.

    It is so perfect a description, and unlike a Lefty he uses such creative insults, he doesn’t have to resort to every second word being an f-bomb or a c-missile.

    Perfect perfect perfect, I have bookmarked it and have already sent it to a bunch of friends.

    Thank you for giving me a laugh out of this otherwise depressing time in Australian politics!

    I shall shamelessly plagiarise this line in my bid to mock the green howler monkeys. :-/

    I am french and I live in Sydney, I really think it will collapse as it was the case in France last year.
    We will see what happen but I am not very confident about it….
    I wrote an article about it from a tax point of view:

  5. $900 Worth of Monkey-Doodle and Baked Wind « The Tizona Group Says:

    […] you know that they’re now going to claim that taking almost $900 a year off everyone for their monkey-doodle and baked wind tax will have no negative effect on the economy […]

Well, SAY something...
