me alone and soon as they hear the name Johnny Rocks they're all over

off the beard and go under cover hoping no one ever discovers who I

share a few of the place names with you:

Koorawatha. Then on to Gooloogong

|Life's Views By Johnny Rocks
Well I live and was bought up tough in the bush outback behind the black stump.
I’ve never had much time for those polly whackers because they cant lie straight
in bed and they all seem like a bunch of bludgers. Lets face it. Year after year we
they still cant get it right. How hard could it be to provide better roads, education,
employment, health and a more sustainable environment? I’m sure they’re all a
pack of bitzers that can only provide band aides rather than any cures. Its not like
we're not paying for it! Our tax buck stops with them and they can’t even spend
that right! A pack of wankers the lot of them. They're like a bunch of amateur
plumbers trying to seal up a leaky pipe with a bit of tape. Well that’s my view on
those bludgers anyway. Polly’s always think a hundred years behind rather than a
hundred years ahead. I’ll stick to look’n for rocks at least they can’t rip me off.
