I sometimes wonder about Gillian Triggs. As the president of the Australian Human Rights Commission I would have thought that she would be completely apolitical. That she shouldn’t be taking sides and the only thing that should be occupying her mind is the human rights issues. Unfortunately most of the time I see her on TV I’m under the impression that her only interest in human rights is when she can use it as a weapon agains the reigning Liberal government.

I always thought it strange the human rights issues of the asylum seekers didn’t come to her attention until after the Liberals came to power. Lets have a look at some of the dates. Gillian Triggs becomes president of the Australian Human Rights Commission on 27th July 2012. Tony Abbott becomes the Prime Minister on the 18th of September 2013. Strange that she didn’t bring up any human rights issues while Labor was in government and asylum seekers were dying while attempting to reach Australian shores. Especially that more children were held in detention under Labor than are currently held under the Liberal Government.

Nope! She waited until the 3rd of February 2014 before launching the National Inquiry into Children in Immigration Detention 2014! Is that because she had the Liberals in her sights?

As a lawyer and a woman in a very prominent position I would have thought that the only time she would offer an opinion was when she had all her facts in order. Imagine the surprise when I hear her claiming the detention centres housing our asylum seekers were patrolled by armed guards likening them to prisons. A claim she had to retract after being challenged on the false assertion.

Then there is the ridiculous ruling, as reported in the Australian,  where she recommended $350,000 compensation be paid to Indonesian refugee John Basikbasik. This is the man who had visa cancelled and was placed in immigration detention after serving an Australian prison sentence for bashing his pregnant wife to death.

She is quite happy to confirm reports of multiple women attempting to commit suicide on Christmas Island. You would thing a woman in her position wouldn’t make such a claim until she got her facts right. But maybe that wasn’t as important as having a dig at the current Liberal government.

Then there was the false claims, as reported by Andrew Bolt in the Herald Sun, of children not receiving medical treatment. It seems that most of the time she’s more interested in getting an emotional reaction for the media against the government than in reporting actual facts.

So far, it seems to me that Gillian Triggs should be awarded the Bullshit Artist Of The Year Award.

Gillian Triggs Bullshit

Sure I feel sorry for those kids in detention but isn’t it better to be there than to be taken away from their parents. And if the countries they were escaping from was so terrible that they feared for their lives if they stayed, isn’t it better to be safely held in custody while their status was being looked into? And if they wanted the process to go a lot quicker then maybe they shouldn’t have destroyed their papers.

How Hookers Can Make You Laugh

by BS Artist on May 26, 2014

Check out the new Lottery Robots!

Even though this sited is called a loadofbullshit.com this site does a lot more than try to expose all the bullshit in this world. I also try to entertain you guys. I know it doesn’t always work and I may sometimes fall short but hey, I’m only one man, and that’s no bullshit :D

Anyway, I decided that this post is going to be a little more light hearted and hopefully more entertaining. Perhaps you could leave me a comment telling me whether or not I actually did manage to entertain you. ;)

Now we all know that hookers are well known for the special sort of entrainment that they can provide. At least that’s what they tell me as I’ve never gone that route. Well, I’ve come up with a video that is all about how good a particular Las vegas Hooker is at her trade. ;)

The Las Vegas Hooker

Hope you enjoyed that joke, maybe even enough to share it with your friends?

Latest Labor Bullshit Spin

by BS Artist on May 19, 2014


I get it. I really do! The Liberals have revealed their budget and there are a lot of people who are unhappy about it. Naturally this is not helped by the Labor party who continue to shovel loads of bullshit out there to add fuel to the fire of discontent. Like the latest commercial that I just watched on TV.A commercial that they so conveniently posted on YouTube. One that is titled You’ll PayFor Abbotts’s lies.

It makes me laugh when you have one bunch of politicians call another bunch of politicians liars. Sort of like the pot calling the kettle black. It’s even funnier when their followers believe everything they say. Most probably know it’s all bullshit but they’re willing to follow their lead as long as it helps to fuel their dislike for whatever policy the Liberals have. At the moment it’s all aimed at Abbott and the current budget.

Let’s look at Labors latest pile of bullshit propaganda shall we?

No Cuts to health: Labor says he lied because it’s going to cost $7 every time you visit the GP and that the cost of medicines will now increase! OK, I know I’m splitting hairs but technically he hasn’t made any cuts to health. As far as having to pay the GP, I’ve always paid my local GP. I don’t ever remember getting a free visit. One has to ask, how often do you go to the GP? Three or four times a year. Hardly sounds like a big impost. Especially if it helps to put Australia on the right footing.

No Cuts In Education: According to the commercial he lied and thirty billion dollars have been cut from schools. I’m not sure that Labor is actually telling the truth when they make such a blanket statement. It seems to me that Liberal isn’t actually cutting $30 billion but refusing to honour Labours Gonski’s grand vision. Something that probably would never have gotten through even if Labor had won. As for the way the Uni debts and costs have changed, I still haven’t made my mind up about that.

No Change To Pensions: I’m not too fussed about the retirement age rising to 70. It’s not going to take place until 2035 so will give us plenty of time to get ready for it. Besides, if I remember correctly Labor was going to lift it to 67 and I don’t remember the shit hitting the fan when that was announced. It seems to me that as we all get to live longer we can’t expect tax payers to continue to pay for our retirement. How will the country be able to bear that? I thought that was the whole idea of having superannuation, so that we didn’t have to rely on a pension?

Getting Rid Of Taxes and Not Imposing New Taxes: Yep, he’s reintroduced the fuel levy, something, if I remember correctly, Howard got

rid of. Something Howard was able to get rid of because of Liberal good management that put the country in the black. Unfortunately we are no longer in the black and we’re going to have to pay 1 cent a litre to help us get back in the black. I think I can afford that.

The video finishes off by saying, “You’ll Pay For Abbotts Lies.” In actual fact, it’s not the lies we’re paying for, it’s Labors ineptitude that we’re all paying for.

When Rudd took over in 2007 there was about $45 billion in the government coffers. When he left in 2010 there was an estimated debt of over $49 billion! So, in three years he managed to blow $94 billion! As of 28th February  2014 the gross government debt is $300,628,000,000. That’s over $300 billion! I couldn’t find the actual interest rate on that debt but I heard it was about $19 billion a year. That’s just interest alone.

The problem is we’re in a bad fiscal situation and it was Labor that put us there. Strange that they never mention that. They keep talking about our triple A credit rating. Too bad that does’t pay our interest rate.

Yes the budget sucks and yes Abbott has broken some promises. What would you prefer? That we continue to go into debt until the point of no return? It seems to me we don’t really have a choice. Something had to be done.

Having said that if I was Abbott I would add one thing to the budget. I would apologise to all Australians for Labor’s mismanagement. I would tell them that I didn’t realise how big the debt was and that until I was able to fix the budget I would have to postpone the parental leave scheme.

Why Bet365 Is Not Bullshit

by BS Artist on May 13, 2014


In my last post I wrote about How To Place Your Sports Bets Online.  That post got me interested in just what is available out there for the serious punter. So I did some research and I reckon, in my opinion, the best site for placing a sports bet online would have to be Bet365. Why did I choose Bet365? I’m so glad you asked. ;)

A very important factor is that I found them to be a most reputable online sports betting agency, one that has been around since 2000. It is also one of the biggest and most reputable online sports betting agency. You don’t get to be that unless you’ve built up a lot of credibility over the years.  According to Wikipedia, Bet365 has over time won several awards and achievements.

bet365“At the eGaming Review Operator Awards 2010 organised by eGaming Review magazine, Bet365 won the “Operator of the Year” award.[13] Bet365 ranked third in The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 league table, which ranks private companies in the UK based on profit growth rate.[14] In addition, Bet365 was ranked as one of the fastest growing privately owned technology, media and telecoms companies in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 league table.

eGaming Review magazine has ranked Bet365 the number one Internet gaming company in 2010, 2011 and 2012 as part of its annual Power 50 list of the top 50 most influential Internet gaming companies.”

Because of their size Bet365 is able to offer punters from all over the world the opportunity to bet on almost any sport no matter where it is being held. No bullshit! As a bet365 member you can bet on almost any sport from darts to horse racing. A big plus is that they also have a great smartphone app which allows me to place a bet no matter where I am.

All in all, if you’re looking for a legitimate online sports betting agency so that you can place a bet on any sport then I highly recommend bet365.
