From the SMH:

Terrorism is increasing. Australians are more scared than ever. Yet the Government talks down the threats. Are politicians playing with our lives? Mark Riley reports.

Terrorism is decreasing. Australians, if crowd sizes are any measure, are less scared than ever. The government is aware of threats. Is Mark Riley playing with himself? Tim Blair reports.

Sorry all, Tim, time for a short rant. How lucky we all are. The yanks bless them,have the NYT. Here,unfortunately we have the SMH. Now,what blows me away is that it seems way to many average punters actually fall for the tripe they dish up.Then have the nerve to claim it as legitimate unbiased reportage.As Tim might say, "Media Watch where are you". Tim,please,break the pledge.Lose the bet.Have a go at her.You know you want to.It must be tearing you up inside.Life doesn't seem the same since you let up on her. Gawd knows she deserves it.

Nearly forget. Mark Riley is not playing with himself. He's playing the Form a Circle Game with the rest of the numbnuts at SMH.

I'm not scared. Personally, I couldn't give a fuck. If my time's up, it's up. C`est la vie. Oh, by the way......I'm a leftie & bloody proud of it too :)

"Neocons" are basically lefties and moderates who don't hate Western Civilization with sufficient passion, and so have been purged from the Leftist Collective so it can join with the Neo-Nazi Collective under the Grand Unified Stupidity Theory I mentioned earlier.

Has Mark Riley ever said anything good about the Government. It is unfortunate we still have to by the SMH 3 tims a week.
