WILL ANOTHER 2 YEARS OF THIS MAN BE TOO LATE?

With an eye on mid-term elections in November and the possibility of losing the Senate as well as Congress to the Republicans, will Obama take up arms against his favoured faith? It’s doubtful.


All Species are Threatened


“DON’T CALL IT A STATE, IT’S A DEATH CULT”, Abbott

“I refuse to use the term ‘State’ it is not a legitimate ‘State’ it is clearly a death cult”, said Tony Abbott in genuine anger. An apparently reasonable assessment that will naturally be ignored by media but is the title “Islamic State” so offensive to Abbott because of the word “State” or because of the word “Islamic”? Hmmm.


NEWMAN TO WIN THE NEXT ELECTION BY DEFAULT

Small politicians have small hands, small fingers, small feet, small everything actually, so how can they be expected to have large brains? When Campbell Newman was drafted from Brisbane Council to lead the LNP to an election when he didn’t even hold a Legislative Assembly seat, it was not so much a mark of his potential, but more a condemnation of who other than Newman the LNP could offer up as Leader.


HAWKS AND DOVES ABOUND BUT OWLS ARE FEW

In the “Desert Shield” Gulf War of 1990, George Bush Senior stopped at the border after chasing the cowardly Iraqis out of Kuwait. He resisted the hawks’ demands that he march on Baghdad, but George Junior had other ideas and in a knee jerk rage in 2003 he decided on an Iraqi regime change. That decision which resulted in his “Mission Completed” farce is the reason for the current Iraq chaos.


NEWMAN'S QLD RULES LEAD TO OWN GOAL

Pickering Post reported last year that Graeme Paul Hancock, 31, had been released from prison where he had served five years for the sexual assault, including rape, of three children aged five, seven and nine.


YOU GOT RID OF THE CARBON TAX TONY

... so now get rid of the Halal Tax

Toasted cheese with a dollop of Vegemite was my favourite late night snack, but I leave off the Vegemite now that it’s owned by the American company Mondelez International and sports a little “Halal Certified” notice. No worries, my Aussie owned and made Bega cheese still bubbled under the griller while the jug boiled for a strong cup of tea.


Claytons Carbon Taxes


WOULD ABBOTT ALSO ASK THIS MAN TO HELP FIGHT RADICAL ISLAM?

Abu Hamza al-Masri, an imam at the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, was convicted on 11 counts of terrorism and taking 16 hostages in Yemen in 1998. He left three Britons and an Australian dead.


BOB THINKS IT LOOKS NICE OUT

So good ol’ Bob Hawke had a predilection for getting his gear off? Hmmm, tell us something we don’t already know. Bob always thought it looked better out after a few beers and the stories are many and quite comical, particularly those emanating from my old drinking hole, the ANU Bar at closing time, which was any time the next day.


Cut the Costly Climate Chatter


HEAR NO EVIL

With a reputation for atrocities somewhere between Pol Pot and Idi Amin, nonagenarian and self-styled illegitimate Zimbabwean President Mugabe has been slaughtering white farmers in a sanctioned land grab and keeping his 14 million inhabitants starving and diseased while he occupies grandiose palaces... one for each day of the week.


HER STORY...

I've worked out why it is that these bloody Laborites, having left us behind in the flotsam and in Kevin's case, jetsam, of the shit fight they created, feel they have to madly get pen to paper quick smart. The tomes are literally queuing up at University Press and others in the wake of the worst 'Gummint' we have ever endured. Barbara Cartland has nothing on these pricks!


HOW THE WEST WAS LOST

A succession of below par Western leaders has given China an unexpected, and perhaps undeserved, leg-up to geopolitical prominence that threatens a weakened USA. There has never been a more incompetent Administration than that of Barack Obama’s.
