Return to Sender..

. from the quill of Antisthenes

Our Prime Minister (as at the time of writing) Ms Gillard promised to prepare a prospectus, promising that we’d be much better off with repeat with the “carbon” tax. Yes, that tax which she promised not to introduce. So we are about to receive from our government in Canberra, at our cost an envelope, and I, for one, am not thankful.

It seems I’m not alone. I received an e-mail in the morning, suggesting that we, i.e. the people, send the envelope to Julia unopened. It reminded me of that old song, something about ‘we had a quarrel, a lover’s spat‘ and ‘gonna take it myself and put it right in her hand”.

Well, if you really want to go to the trouble of readdressing and stamping the envelope, I would suggest you address it to Bob Brown, her boss. Our pitiful Julia only does what she is told. Otherwise, just write upon it “return to sender”, and drop it into a mailbox whilst singing with Elvis Presley “no such number, no such tax…”



About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
