Why aren’t there Facebook ‘Like’ buttons on everything?

A line drawing of a hand giving the thumbs up signBecause I want a Facebook Like button on this. What would you put a ‘Like’ button on if you could?

ETA: And then you find someone who’s done it so much better.

  1. There’s an imaginary Like sticker going on the bottle of beer I’m about to open but it’ll probably peel off when the Sydney humidity condenses all over it.

    I can see what Bob Brown’s trying to express, but I certainly wouldn’t apologise for a sign whose sentiment I didn’t share. You don’t apologise for things you don’t feel remorse or regret about—I’m ashamed for the protesters, not of the protest.

  2. I notice that the Australian’s article about the protestors today included descriptions of other posters/placards/banners but somehow avoided either photographing or describing this one as shown by the ABC:

  3. A Like/Dislike button on each politicians home page would be a great help. Save all those unanswered emails.

  4. They’ve got it up now. Probably proud of it.

  5. Ahem – that comment was on the wrong thread! Should have been in response to TT’s comment that the extremely silly photo of Abbott, Bishop and Panopoulos was used by the ABC but not the Australian (Opposition Organ) at time of writing.
    I would put a “like” thumb on Joe Pug if I could get close enough to him!

  6. Oh, no, it’s on the same thread. READING FAIL. Must go to bed :-/

  7. I will start listening to Tony Abbott regarding the ALP’s breach of a political promise after (and only after) he gets the Liberal Party to remove the concepts of “core” and “non-core”[1] political promises from their repertoire. Oh, and once they start sticking to things they brought in while they were in power – like the Charter of Budget Honesty and similar.
    Or in other words, Tony mate, if you’re accusing Ms Gillard of being a hypocrite, it’s mainly on the grounds of “and I should bloody well know, right!”
    [1] Translation for non-Aussies: “core” promises are the ones they intend to keep. “Non-core” promises are the ones they’re making to swindle the voters into voting for them with no intention of ever keeping them. The term was created by the former Liberal prime minister (and latter day saint of the Liberal Party of Australia) John Howard.

  8. The witch ones were particularly telling, imo, and the witch comments in Parliament this week from the opposition as well. They haven’t moved on from the middle ages – they still don’t trust science, and they still want to burn any woman who has power as a witch.
