ONE SMALL SURPLUS DOES NOT A LARGE DEBT SOLVE

A five maybe six billion dollar budget surplus makes a very small hole in a five or six hundred billion dollar debt. And who’s to say any government will use any small projected surplus to pay down the deficit? Certainly not Labor.


WELCOME TO WHOSE COUNTRY?

By Frank Salter

In the last several years I have observed many “Acknowledgment of Country” ceremonies. The wording varies but typically, at the start of a meeting, the master of ceremonies declares that the meeting is being held on the traditional lands of a particular indigenous people or peoples in general.



THE DON DOESN’T NEED A WALL…he just needs ten minutes with Abbott

Trump asked for $67 billion for his 3,000 mile wall… they gave him enough for a few hundred yards. DC is mostly united against his wall, but does the Don really need the bloody thing? No, he doesn’t.


ABBOTT STOPPED THESE TWO DOGS RETURNING TO THEIR VOMIT

... so Turnbull returned there instead

NBN, NDIS, GONSKI, FINKEL… all part of a failed Rudd, Gillard, Rudd era but re-invented by Turnbull. The NBN was never on budget and can never be a success, because no-one will buy it at what it cost to build it, so it will always remain a large part of our deficit.


Weather, Climate, Carbon Dioxide and Global Warming

There are three big drivers of weather for any place on Earth – the latitude, the local environment and solar system cycles.


BOMBER THOMPSON MOVES FROM USER TO DEALER

...and PP predicted he was gone in January this year

There would be very few Aussie Rules followers, players or officials who were not aware of Bomber’s cocaine habit and his association with bikies. Perhaps the coppers only took an interest when he was accused of gravitating to dealing in ice. http://pickeringpost.com/story/bomber-thomson-is-the-cokehead-but-it-s-the-afl-that-should-be-in-gaol-/7890


WILL THE DON FALL FOR KIM’S BULLSHIT?

Ha, we know South Korea’s little Lefty pacifist, Moon Jae-in, has fallen for it with his overly extended cuddles and sickeningly long pudgy hand clasps, but common sense says Little Rocket Man is up to something dodgy and the Don is not short on common sense.



YOUR VOTE WILL BE FOR WHO YOU DETEST THE LEAST

And that is not what our vote was intended to reflect. The knifing of a first term successful PM was also not intended to reflect our so-called democratic voting system. But there you go… it has happened more than once and it has eroded the value of our vote. Who in their right mind would vote for Turnbull’s Party, and who in their right mind would vote for Shorten’s. No-one in their right mind would vote for either.



COSBY'S VICTIMS CLAIM VICTORY FOR “#ME TOO” MOVEMENT

And that’s a shame because sexual assault is far more serious than a crass feminist movement. Harvey Weinstein must have had some carryover into this re-trial where, due to the statute of limitations, only five of 62 complainants were allowed to testify. But with the sentencing phase to come, the judge will likely allow victim-impact statements from everyone who wants to see Cosby die penniless in jail.


CAR PARKING A FISCAL (AND MEDICAL) RIPOFF


AN UNTRUSTWORTHY HEAD WITH A LEFT-LEANING BLACK HEART

…Michelle Guthrie's ABC Monday programming worsens

If you give a national broadcaster a taxpayer financed budget it will always devolve into an activist Left think tank, as has the Brits’ BBC. The rabid Left has always harboured an attraction for free money and its incestuous in-breeding ensures only the Left survives. But, like the doomed cheeta, incestuous in-breeding always faces eventual extinction.


MY ANZAC ON THE WALL

I published this story a few years back and here it is again for those who missed it and for those who would re-live one of the greatest yet unheralded Australian yarns ever told. A thousand tales like this exist with the ability to get anyone, even a cynical un-Australian Lefty like Yassmin Abdel-Magied, out of bed for a cold dawn service. Grab the tissues, here it is again:


Earth Day should Celebrate “Engines and Electricity”

Most chapters of human history are defined by the tools and machines that were used.



NOT YOUR AVERAGE BIKE

I don’t know how it happened. Maybe it was a glitch in the booking system. Maybe the Gods of Air travel decided to finally give me a break. Whatever it was, something totally unexpected happened on a flight back to Brisbane last Tuesday evening.
