Getting screwed




Sir – Donald Trump has been the US President for almost one year (who knew?), and Fire and Fury by Michael Wolff has been released to commemorate it.


I doubt if I read it, but I expect we will hear a lot about it.

They’re all standing naked over there now. They’ve broken cover. Finally, what we see is what we have long known to be.

When Robert Kennedy was running for President, before they killed him, he addressed some students.


I can’t find it for a verified quote, but what I remember is: “I don’t know how to say this, but you’re getting screwed.”

So it’s been a good year.

    Is the NTG Revenue Discussion Paper clear enough?
    Without considerably more public discussion before the [Tue, 23 January 2018] meeting in Alice Springs may there be a wipe-out?

    Hal: Are America, Australia or the whole world getting screwed?
    Before we all get screwed or whatever, Happy New Year, everyone.

    One good thing Trump has done is made it so everybody in America has access to health care. And I am the only person in Alice Springs with a personalized signed photograph of himself.
