STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

Why Tony and Cate are an item

MUTUAL self interest often makes for odd bedfellows. Relationships are formed for reasons not seemingly apparent to the casual observer. This past week we saw the consummation of an old relationship, in full bloom in one of our daily metro newspapers.



AFIC JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Muslim Charities And Not For Profits Under The Spotlight

Finally, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) is facing serious scrutiny. It could soon lose its status as a charity as the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission (ACNC) investigates ‘inappropriate use of funds’ at AFIC. And that should be simply the start of matters.



Hell hath no fury…

Cate McGregor had a hell of a hissy fit on Australia Day. They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Well, actually, William Congreve said that. William looks familiar. That’s because he is basically what you would get if you combined David Morrison (who we are all sick of seeing) and his jaded speechwriter, Cate McGregor (who we are also sick of seeing).



Me, Bubba and Banjo

One day we were given homework by the English teacher, Bubba Powell. He was the spitting image of Kevin Rudd with his ruddy baby face, insipid little quivering mouth and white hair. He was dentally challenged and avoided baring his grey, uneven teeth.



THE EVIL CULTURE THAT WORSHIPS BABY KILLERS

...and it's not the West

Just a few miles from where I grew up, there lived a disturbed young man named Ian Brady. Ian met a young girl at work called Myra Hindley and they began a love affair. Unfortunately, Myra was also particularly twisted and their partnership would lead to horrific tragedy.


GIVE ME THE CHILD UNTIL HE IS SEVEN…

The power of indoctrination prior to the age of reason is finite, everlasting and transcends all intellectual reason. Most of all it is underestimated. If a parent tells a young child that Father Xmas exists, the child will believe it is so.



Justice Ain't Justice

Our penal systems vary and are based on dogma. Religious dogma. The Islamic woman who is raped, and cannot produce witnesses to testify that she was, will be stoned to death. The European woman who is raped and can point a finger at her “violator” will have him gaoled… in a “correctional centre”.


Sending Children Back To Nauru Is Humane and Right

The high court’s ruling, upholding Australia’s offshore processing system, is not only the right one on legal grounds, it’s also profoundly humane. No more deaths at sea and no more children ripped from their mother’s arms, sinking to the bottom of a cold, dark cruel sea, ending their short innocent lives


DOUBTING DARWIN

The theory of evolution is as simple and as logical as creation is outrageous. Every species has what is perceived as sexual attraction. Except its real purpose is not sexual, it is survival… the sexual component is a mere conduit for the greater purpose.



A Vote For Labor Is A Vote For Islam

This week it was announced that counter-terrorism expert Anne Aly would contest the seat of Cowan in WA for Labor, in the upcoming federal election. In the Sydney Morning Herald Anne Aly said the national security debate had often been driven by the "politics of division and fear".


Would You Buy A Used Republic From This Man?

HAVE I got a Republic for YOU. Don’t think you need a Republic? Think again! But you’ll have to be quick! I’ll even throw in a set of free steak knives. That’s the dodgy used car spiel being spruiked this time around to pressure YOU into buying a clapped out ‘Republic’ model.
