For decades Australian governments have waged a pointless war on industries producing carbon dioxide using taxes, emissions targets, direct action, harassment of coal and gas explorers and bankers, and promotion of expensive weather-dependent green energy. This has damaged all metals industries – iron and steel, copper, nickel, aluminium, lead and zinc.
I don’t always agree with the left leaning academics of the Western world. Fortunately, there are a few areas where we can find some common ground.
Most Americans and Australians believe the current US election is a Federal Presidential election. It’s not! All posters here know it’s a two Party struggle to find their best respective candidates and, despite the protests, any party can select whatever candidate it wants for an election to be held later this year. The GOP doesn’t want Donald and the Libs didn’t want Bronwyn. Poor Bronwyn.
Bill Shorten thinks he can make truckies responsible and stop them taking drugs. Little does he realise that without speed pills there would be a semi trailer accident on every bend with dead people strewn everywhere. Private truck operators do it really tough and they don't need to be unionised by Shorten.
The Aboriginal Father Christmas addressed the Press Club today in a room of fawning Lefties and he wants greater representation in Parliament. Well, Aborigines have been over-represented over a long period thanks largely to Captains’ picks on parachutes into the Senate.
I have mentioned before that I don’t watch television. Sunrise is another vivid example of why I avoid it. The story was titled the Violent Protests over Halal Food. No, the violent protests were initiated by the lefty thugs who act like fascists trying to shut down peaceful demonstrations. By the way, no-one on that panel, including myself had anything to do with the protests.
Six years of Rudd, Gillard, Rudd left Australia with its pants down around its knees, in deep debt, with a bare cupboard, China in decline and a sense of hopelessness. This coming budget will make no attempt to even begin to address this Labor induced disaster because an election will be held soon after and the Libs will refuse to give Shorten a dozen free kicks. This is a classic Turnbull stuff-up.
Muslims will never give up their intention to build these ghastly monuments of noisy dominance over the landscape. That is what they are ordered to do and have the finance to do, the problem still exists, not for the Gold Coast, but for other people in other areas who will need to fight to prevent these un-Australian edifices that are central to terrorist activity.
The relentless war on carbon is justified by the false assumption that global temperature is controlled by human production of two carbon-bearing “Greenhouse Gases”. The scary forecasts of runaway heating are based on complicated but narrowly-focussed carbon-centric computerised Global Circulation Models built for the UN IPCC.
Most people, including Bill Shorten, will claim that smoking causes cancer and if we can stop people smoking the health bill will diminish and people will live longer. Um... if they live longer the health bill will increase! It’s the aged who are responsible for the health bill blowout, so why not save a fortune and allow them to die sooner?... Give the poor old buggers free tobacco!
The Gold Coast is awash with drugs and if you want the celebrity status of owning nightclubs then it’s best to know the law well. I won’t go near night clubs whether they are owned by family members or not, they are dangerous places where, like VLAD laws, mere association can be a crime and it’s impossible to know the ages of who you are speaking to.
The US Administration has provided Iran with a pathway to nuclear weapons hoping that within ten years Iran’s population of 80 million, of which 70 per cent is currently under 35, will rebel against the religious old guard and create the "flower power" and "ban the bomb" era of the 60s in the West.
Julia Gillard cruelly gladdened the hearts of the disabled, but it’s Tony Abbott (and now Malcolm Turnbull) who had to wrestle with the reality. the-disabled-julia/1274
Once a week we put three hours aside to enjoy a thoroughly Aussie competition devoid of socio-political slogans, but this time a year ago such a banner would have been torn down immediately. Today there is a heightened awareness of the dangers mosques pose across the globe.
A really weird situation existed in England when mum was young. At that time, anyone who expressed concern about the Nazis was accused of being a violent rabble rouser and warmonger.
Everything Turnbull has done since the coup has been done in the pursuit of protecting his high poll figures. His latest thought bubble of allowing the States to collect income tax is not just ridiculous it is outrageous and brazenly designed to save spending his own political capital raising taxes prior to a DD election.
