I keep hearing coup prime minister Julia Gillard using variants of this phrase :
"We must move/go forwards, not backwards."
Such a familiar phrase. Someone else had used it, many years ago, in a gripping campaign speech, powerfully podium pitching their political wares.
It was Kodos :
"Tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!"I'm not being critical in pointing out that Julia Gillard appears to be sourcing The Simpsons for political rhetoric. I say More Of It.
In fact, let me help out. I submit following stirring political views of Homer Simpson for inclusion in future speeches by our coup prime minister :
Children are our future. Unless we stop them now.
If something goes wrong.....blame the guy who can't speak English.Volunteering is for suckers. Did you know that volunteers don't even get paid for the stuff they do?
How is education going to make me smarter?
I wish God were alive to see this.
Stupidity got us into this mess, and stupidity will get us out.
Marriage is like a coffin and each kid is like another nail.
I never apologize, I'm sorry but that's the way I am.
It takes two to lie....One to lie and one to listen.
When are people going to learn? Democracy doesn't work.
