Hard to imagine a female Stick Insect more capable of devious deception than Julia Gillard. They chew their partners’ heads off after mating. But there ya go... it’s a photo finish. And it’s hard to imagine a portfolio more suited to political chicanery than DFAT. But there ya go again... the nutritionally challenged Stick Insect managed to snaffle it with typical feline perniciousness. And Gillard gave it to the unelected, cosmetically challenged, Bob Carr for his dodgy support. What women!
Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn, the rancid Michael Moore (above), Chuck Schumer, Plibersek, Macklin, Albanese, the Greens and the ABC have all moved further Left in a state of shock that the new Right is actually gaining more appeal.
Leaving a problem for an incoming leader or what is known as, “kicking the can down the road” is common in the US and here. Obama and Gillard were expert at it. Obama left ISIS to grow like Topsy and sealed a deal with Iran to develop a nuclear capability for the next US President to deal with. Gillard committed the following PM to funding almost $250 billion in Gonski, the NDIS and NBN. Gillard knew neither she nor the hapless Rudd could win the 2PP vote. So she laid massively expensive landmines for the incomer with feline precision.
Without a major terrorist event in the next two weeks Marine Le Pen cannot win the Presidency but she has already won the hearts of what were once socialist tadpoles across France.
Building a wall over 2,000k along the USA border with Mexico is surely only symbolic and something dumb Yanks could understand during an election campaign. But now in the post-election real world it's obviously extraordinarily expensive, silly, unnecessary and plain bloody stupid. No doubt many posters on this site will disagree with me.
“The sea is the sharks’ environment and we are trespassing”, is the reason the Greens tell us they will not allow drum-lining for great whites to make our favourite beaches safer. Mention netting and the Greens go into an hysterical meltdown.
Imposition of sanctions on any country only hurts the wrong people and sanctions never work, in fact they usually lead to wars. The Treaty of Versailles put Germany in an intolerable position it had to extricate itself from. Germany was not even a party to the decision to impose massive sanctions but it gave Hitler the opportunity to convince his people that action must be taken.
The crack Seals team that killed Osama bin Laden is in training to take out the Zika Kid when ordered to. Should be a piece of cake compared to bin Laden who hid within a stone's throw of a major Pakistani Military base. The poor bastard who fingered bin Laden's whereabouts to the US still rots in a Pakistani gaol without his $US20 million reward money. Hmmm, but everyone knows where the Zika Kid is.
“Death to Turkey,” says Egypt, “death to Egypt,” says Turkey, “death to Turkey,” says Libya, “death to Libya,” says Turkey, “death to Iran” says Saudi Arabia,“death to Saudi Arabia,” says Iran, “death to Saudi Arabia,” say the Yemeni Houthis, “death to the Houthis,” says Saudi Arabia, but all agree as one when it comes to, “death to Israel and America”. What a bloody mess!
You can have your solar panels and your turbines on the hills; You can use the warmth of sunshine to reduce your heating bills. You can dream you’re self-sufficient as you weed your vegie bed; As long as you make sure to keep A diesel in the shed.
Only now is it becoming evident just how much of a failure Obama was. He flat out refused to confront Islamic terrorism, Iranian nuclear capability or the mentally retarded, obese grub, Kim jong-Un, who threatens Japan, the US and South East Asia with crude and dangerous attempts at delivering nuclear warheads using outdated ICBM technology supplied by Iran. The pudgy little gnome has no idea that he only has weeks to live.
Well, here I am, just back from England, sitting up at midnight unable to sleep and thinking over the events of the last three weeks. What is it actually like in England these days? People over here often ask me that. Is it really that bad? Are there gangs on the streets? Are the inner cities on fire?
Dear Pauline, Many Australians admire you because you say what they think. You raise issues other politicians are too afraid to confront. You voice the concerns of hundreds of thousands of citizens in uncertain times.
I was looking everywhere for Ralph Blewitt’s contact number when the phone rang. Yep, it was old Ralph. I wanted to know if the fire in his belly was still raging at the same rate it was three years ago. Surely his anger must have subsided a little. It hadn’t, except toward me for calling him a simpleton, for which I have apologised.
Every day some green energy promoter or a battery salesman tells us how green energy with battery backup will supply Australia’s future electricity needs.
