QLD readers

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably all read/heard/seen the latest DEBACLE from the NINCOMPOOPS at Queensland Health. Outrageous. Husband had his hand in part of the new payroll but I honestly do not know WHICH part but all I do know is it ISN’T the part that stuffed up! Even so, am waiting for the paparazzi to come a’knocking on my door. Need to make sure I wear something nice for the cameras and practice my “NO COMMENT!”

So Premier Anna Bligh decides not to say too much about it at all in the hope that it all disappears and instead calls an emergency meeting with all the Labor MPs so they can discuss – guess. Just guess what they’re talking about. Go on. Guess.

Daylight Savings.

Are you friggin’ kidding me?  Talk about a smokescreen. Do they really think we are that gullible. Well, actually we are because it’s the new talking point now.  I’m not saying that state governments can’t do or act on more than one thing at once but PRIORITIES, people! This is like your teenage son coming to tell you that he’s fathered three children by three different women but what he really wants to talk to you about is SHALL WE HAVE ICE CREAM FOR DESSERT?

For goodness sake! Anna wants to know what Qlders think? Here’s what I think, Anna:


Am getting a little tired with all the rubbishing of “born Muslims”

How often have I heard that it’s us “born Muslims” who mix culture with religion and it’s the convert/revert (can never get the word right) who have the true Islam because they aren’t jaded by culture (if they adopt the Arab one then that’s ok ya’ni) How often have I heard how born Muslims don’t know s**t about Islam.How often have I heard how convert Muslims will save the day.

AND to top it all off, born Muslims are sooo funny and hilarious because they always ask the white convert where they are from. Those stupid born ethnic Muslims think the white convert is from an Arab country. LOLZ!

Us brownies get the same question all the time. But not only from Muslims, but from non-Muslims too. We are constantly reminded that no matter how long we live in “the West” we will always be the other. I’m glad (and I really say this without any sarcasm) you white converts find it amusing and that the questions don’t (and probably won’t) ever affect you in the same way.
