Professional criminals like playing games with the police, the courts and other criminals. They can be accomplished actors, charming, persuasive or ingratiating.

Karmalitics is a light hearted, controversial, thought provoking, and in places very amusing view of politics as if people matter. It is not intended to change the world as we know it, but is does encourage the reader to question if the quality of life could be improved for a large section of the population without impeding on those that are satisfied with lives.
Blue Blue City by Peter Kelly
Price: Free! Words: 153,700. Language: Australian English. Published: October 29, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Humor & comedy » General, Fiction » Visionary & metaphysical
More avant-garde than if Lenin was an Irish policeman, Blue Blue City is a text produced by mangling Pride and Prejudice beyond all comprehensibility. I've never read it, and I wrote the thing. Daryl Jones is placed in several bizarre situations, and there's also a pregnant senator running around. Basically, a crap Finnegan's Wake.

...being the questionable memoirs of a certain North Queensland high school boy on his 1950’s journey through the leafy glades of learning. But (shock horror!), it's in the first-person present tense, the mark of a rank amateur. Yet this was the only way I could make the story work, dear reader, and you, with your perspective and experience, will judge it for yourself (hopefully with a smile).

The perfect political candidate would result from the unholy union of Elmer Fudd and Jeffrey Dahmer - a cute sociopath who never gives up. A person who everyone likes, though they don't know why, and who can single-mindedly pursue a goal without regard to the destruction around him. Boiled Frogs with Mock Toast is a testament to why we really do not want our candidates to speak their minds.
