Sometimes life gives me insights into the past. For instance, I now know why at Federation the larger states were so afraid of the smalle states taking control of the Senate and completely demolishing our system of government. It’s because they have absolutely no competence when it comes to naming people.
The Speaker of the NT legislative assembly is called Jane Aagaard. Why do you need so many As in your name? A prominent ALP candidate in Tasmania is called Honey Bacon, and prominently is the wife of Jim Bacon, former Premier.

Update: I have also just discovered that the former Deputy Chief Minister has the rather Harry Potter-eque name (and title) of Marion Scrymgour. Chief Minister Scrymgour lol

Add that to chair-sniffing, Barnaby Joyce and Sir Joh and now I realise that we are so lucky our country is controlled from Sydney and Melbourne. We have an Opera House/bridge and lots of small bars. That’s all we ever really needed.

In other news, the California Review wrote a battle hymn because they thought God should play a more prominent part in life. They quoted Alan Keyes, a most respectable man, and dear friend of Tom Tancredo no doubt. http://ucsdcalrev.wordpress.com/2009/08/04/my-battle-hymn/

First para:

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

I am indeed quite worried.
