Now that border fascism has been brought home by the cruelty of the Federal Budget, as could have been predicted, the question and ramifications of homelessness might merit consideration.

Dexter and Hannah sometimes indicate that we are not alone. There could be trouble on the way, if I don’t take precautions. Ignoring the signs could be big mistake. There are somethings, such as motor bikes that can be heard clearly.
The governments of the world seem to be ignoring the trouble that climate change has in store and is expressing. Climate denial is costly. Ignoring potential problems does not make them go away.
The Federal Budget will affect everybody, perhaps in different ways, including those people who live and work, or at some future point once lived and worked around the neighbourhood.
So what has been the purpose of life? Dexter and Hannah have, as far as I know, never paused to reflect, either in retrospect or prospect on this question.
For them it is to live and to be, and there is no division. Multiplication, as is true for the natural world in general is in the long run cause for diversity. It seems that it is only human beings, those with the cognitive edge, if not the consciousness edge who are out of balance.
Rule of thumb, somewhat nasty with respect to the PM:When he makes a promise or declaration take it he means the opposite of what he says. That presupposes you can bear listening to him, which I find difficult. I find it difficult to listen to Tony Abbott.
Dexter and Hannah do not go around with the eyes closed, or there sense of smell turned off.
Human Beings are designated as Homo Sapiens. I like to surmise that the cognitive edge with Neanderthals was the teamwork between humans and dogs, since the maligned Neanderthals do not seem to have been less intelligent.
The story of the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers in the “concentration camps” on Manus Island will not go away. Conditions on Nauru are also inhumane.
The focus should now be on stopping the brutality. Most recently the
Four Corners report, and other reports suggest there is no exaggeration.
The days merge as they tend to do, and often I cannot remember one day from the next. When there is a record it can be noticed that “things” have occurred. I am not sure what Dexter and Hannah’s remembered experience is to them.
Good to see that Maurice Newman is holding to his position that dismisses the scientific theory of climate change caused by greenhouse gases in the atmosphere in which Carbon Dioxide gas emissions play a critical role.
Mr Newman has held a similar opinion to that he held as ABC Chairman, and yet he accuses others of “group think”.
The tradition of Easter, including it pagan antecedents, does not make any real sense here in the Southern Hemisphere. We are in Autumn, heading toward Winter.
