Sometimes when history is made, you could hardly miss it. Great armies sweep across continents raping and pillaging. Powerful navies blast each other by hostile shores. Tyrants inflict genocide and starvation on hapless populations.
Now we know why SA shipbuilders were given $60 billion for (soon to be obsolete) submarines to be delivered in 50 years' time and why little Chris Pyne was given a higher salary to assist the hopeless Marise Payne in an unworkable joint administration of the Ministry of Defence which was well beyond her pay grade.
The three Turnbull Government ministers who correctly criticised Victorian judges over inadequate sentencing of terrorists have supposedly avoided contempt charges after they unreservedly apologised for their comments.
A grubby little sexually confused mate of Peter Slipper as a choice of chief-of-staff bodes poorly for the future decisions of Pauline Hanson. She desperately needs good advice and she won’t get it from him because he has formerly displayed a total ignorance of how the media operates. Anything Hanson says, the media will attack simply because it was she who said it!
Greens’ unabashed Communist Senator, Lee Rhiannon, declared three years ago that coal production in Australia was finished. She was justifiably laughed at and she even drew derisory comments from the media.
The Finsbury Park Mosque, one of dozens in North London, has in the past produced more than its quota of Islamic terrorists including the shoe bomber and it was targeted for its deadly reputation. Did anyone believe the Poms would not eventually fight back after the slaughter of many UK citizens by mad Muslims over the past three weeks? The Infidels are also mad, this is war so how can they be blamed? But they will be!
Why did exploratory rock-art funding dry up after it was discovered that Australia’s Aborigines were likely not the first inhabitants. And why were rock paintings destroyed that clearly showed a more sophisticated indigenous people were present prior to, and at the same time, as our Aborigines? Who was here first?
So now elected politicians need to explain to a court why a decision was criticised and why it was suggested that judges display an ideological bias? Are these fancy dressed galahs for real? Of course judges show bias, that’s why political parties appoint the buggers.
The baseball field shooter asked if the players were Republicans before he opened fire on defenceless Capitol Hill employees and Congressional Members. They had to be Republican and put to death in ways Hollywood nutters describe as appropriate.
Compulsory voting may not be democratic (how can someone democratically force you to vote for someone, you ask) but mandatory voting does prevent the Marxists of this world from having an inside run to government. Both came too close for comfort.
The trouble with democracy, is that there is always a section of any society which is really dumb. Suppose I was to stand for election with a proposal to repeal the Law of Gravity. The Law of Gravity is one of the leading causes of deaths each year both at home and on the work site. If I promised to repeal this law, I can guarantee there would be some people stupid enough to vote for me.
Former FBI Director Comey can say nothing that will cause hyperventilating “Never Trumpers” to reach for the impeachment button.This Russian collusion crap is nothing more than a normal inter Ambassadorial function. All diplomats are eager for information (albeit that it can usually be gained from any newscast) to show governments back home that they are doing their jobs.
