A Betoota Heights man is wondering what is going on right now because he’s struggling to make sense of anything that’s happening right now.

On a personal level, Michael Centra is going through much turmoil. He has no money and his car is broken. His boss doesn’t like him very much and neither do his coworkers. He’s back living with his parents in a 19-year-old display home that neither of them wanted to buy, they just thought they’d get in. Michael started smoking cannabis again.

Nevertheless, the 27-year-old was optimistic that politically, at least, things would be brighter now that the “good guys” are in power but has felt “let down” and “confused” by the Albanese Government’s first 100 days in charge.

“I think it’s a well-known fact that we are all just living in a simulation,” he said.

“Where emotion is fake, it’s just a bunch of numbers on a screen. Love, pain, happiness. It’s all fake. Everybody knows that. But what has really confused me is that I thought that things would change for the better,”

“Like, did the aliens controlling this simulation get their programs mixed up? Like is this a parallel universe where ScoMo won the election? I mean, we’re looking for oil and gas in the ocean. We’re punishing welfare recipients. The worker’s party is giving the top end of town a massive tax cut that the top end of town doesn’t want because if anyone knows what state the economy is in, it’s the top end of town,”

“Then to top it all off, we have a retired basketball player from America appearing with Albo in Canberra to announce the Indigenous Voice to Parliament campaign,”

“What the fuck is going on? I want to get off this ride.”

More to come.
