ETS – carbon tax – starts in 5 weeks!


I HAVE BECOME UN-AUSTRALIAN...and it’s not a nice feeling


OH GRACIOUS ME...WHAT A BLOODY MESS THAT WAS!

Despite its failings, democracy has been a true blessing to the English. It has allowed them to restrain tyrannical kings and queens beneath a democratically elected parliament. Since they achieved this (with much bloodshed) in the 1700s the Poms have never looked back.


The Real Energy Deniers

When man first appeared on Earth he had no implements, no clothes, no farms and no mineral fuels – his only tools were his brains, hands and muscles.


TALIBAN LEADER COPS A ROCKET

While embattled PM Nawaz Sharif complains that Obama has violated Pakistan’s sovereignty by blowing Taliban leader, Mullah Akhtar Mansour into mince meat in a drone strike marginally inside Pakistan territory, he is lucky that Obama didn’t do what he should have done... destroy the Afghan poppy fields that the Taliban and Afghanis rely on for their war effort and the Pakistanis reach across their northern border for a sizable piece of the action


HMMM, WHAT DO WE CALL THIS ONE?

NOW YOU KNOW WHY ABBOTT REFUSED TO FLICK HER

WHY SUPER IS INFERIOR

Better make your own pre-death arrangements where super is concerned because the only people making money now are the shysters in Parliament and those in control of your money.

FAIRFAX PRESS PASSES ON IN A PILE OF PARTISAN POO


ARE BLEWITT AND KERNOHAN ABOUT TO HAVE THEIR DAY IN COURT?

Sarah McNaughton SC has been appointed by Senator Brandis as Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. Is this appointment a forerunner to the prosecution of Ralph Blewitt and Bruce Wilson?


A PANORAMIC VIEW TO DIE FOR

... well, at least it will make you feel sick

Wind power is certainly a major global industry but it’s only producing in the order of 1.4% of the world’s total electricity. And solar is so pathetically low that it needs to be bundled up with “tidal and wave” power to even register at 0.1%.


IS TURNBULL'S TEAM SMART ENOUGH TO TACKLE SHORTEN'S?

...in a word, "No".

LOOKS LIKE THE ELECTORAL OFFICE HAS STUFFED UP AGAIN!

The following are instructions on how to vote in the Senate from the AEC’s web page. Similar instructions are shown on the AEC’s television advertising. The trouble is that the instructions are plain wrong... or else the enacted legislation is wrong.


WHERE IS AUSTRALIA’S DONALD TRUMP?

I was one of many who thought Trump could not win the nomination, not because I didn’t want him to win, but because I thought the GOP would kill his bid, and they tried hard. But his win has been so conclusive, so definitive, no-one would dare to deny his legitimacy... so look out, the Don has shown how much smarter he is than the GOP establishment and he’s about to show just how much smarter he is than the Democratic politically correct class.
