Getting the english right


Can we please make more of an effort to check our placards for grammatical errors next time?
First of all, if Julia really is Bob Brown's bitch, then we need to mark the fact with a possesive apostrophe.
Second, what is it with the use of American english people? Are we not protesting outside the AUSTRALIAN parliament? Use Australian english, please.
"My MOM is cold" ?
"Stick the tax up your ASS"?

Tax and ass don't even rhyme. Ass doesn't sound like a swear word to Australians. The other does. MOM is unforgivable.

What does 'My Mom is Cold' mean?

Andrew: 'arse' sounds a lot worse than 'ass'.
Victor: I guess it's a reference to how mum will feel when she can't afford to heat her house. Or maybe the protestor wants global warming so mum won't have to be put up with the Canberra winters.

I was shocked at the spelling and grammatical errors on those placards as well. But then, it has to be expected from people who support one of our creepiest politicians.

Evol said it for me.
The hypocrisy of this 'tax horror' shreiking, from the Party who said 'No GST' is gobsmacking.
and please remember the last election squawking about the mining tax ... such a terrible imposition it would have been on Gina $70-million-per-day-profit Rinehart, and all those other mining CEO's in their $50-million dollar houses in Peppermint Grove ...

Yes...the liberals and the GST. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
