"THE MOST EXCITING TIME IN OUR HISTORY"?

Turnbull is like the dog that caught the bus and now he hasn’t a clue what to do with it. Since he rolled Abbott, it’s been all downhill for the Libs. And now he is faced with what should be a horror budget just prior to a general election... HTF did THAT happen?


SAY CHEERIO RUBIO

Senator Marco Rubio will lose his home State of Florida tonight and his run at the GOP nomination will be over. Trump didn’t even bother campaigning there this week, presciently preferring the more competitive Ohio.


Weather Ripples and Climate Tides


THE SCIENCE IS IN!.. global warming and Obama are both frauds


BLOKES HAVE A TOUGH TIME OF IT

Just channel surfing the other night and there was this party on a beach somewhere (the channel could have been Bondi Rescue, many readers would also have seen it). There were a bunch of young girls determined to remove this young bloke’s board shorts, he was strenuously resisting, hanging on to his waist band with white knuckles.



‘Malcolm Goes to the Mosque’

...sounds like a children’s story book title doesn’t it?

Sadly it is not. This is a case of our Prime Minister treating us all as ignorant little children. He seems to have forgotten the inconvenient truth that most of us are indeed adults, with a brain.


WINDSOR WANTS NEW ENGLAND BACK?...Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!!!!!


IT’S TRUMP’s CASABLANCA

...and he is not choking

Last year I quoted Ted Cruz as a short priced favourite to win the US Presidential nomination and suggested you could “write your own ticket” about Trump. The Republican machinery would never allow a cowboy like Trump to disrupt what has become a comfortably corrupt organisation, or so I thought. But Trump is overwhelming the lobbyists and protected interests like no-one thought possible and now he cannot be ignored.


Making Things Matters

Recent headlines exulted: “Real estate makes bigger profits than mining”.... This is an omen, not a signal to celebrate.


YOU AIN'T NO ABBOTT MALCOLM


ISLAMIC WOMEN KNOW THEIR PLACE

... because no-one has told them otherwise

The discussion about Islam in Australia is very rarely a discussion about Islam. Commentators and politicians usually get bogged down in name calling along with tangents such as who are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ Muslims. It is time to cut through the rhetoric and actually have a debate about the ideology known as Islam.



Extreme Australia is coming

….and it has nothing to do with dangerous animals, crazy sports or hair-raising stunts!


PELL TREADS A FINE LINE

... but now it's time to let him go

Cardinal Pell is not a child molester. He is simply a sad character who has lacked female affection and his sex life has been confined to masturbation. His sin is that he knew of paedophilia within his church and sought to protect the church rather than the children.


TRUMP FIGHTS A HEAD WIND

... and suffers unfriendly fire from the rear

Forecasts that he would self-destruct have proven wrong and Donald Trump has broken the mould for nominee elections forever. No-one has ever seen anything like this before. In between promising to deport 11 million illegal entrants and having an unpresidential punch up with the Pope his successful loony shenanigans have forced his opponents to adopt similar unfamiliar tactics.


20 WAYS TO STOP ISLAMOPHOBIA

Charter for Compassion International have recently released a guidebook on Islamophobia. After reviewing it, we can honestly say we had no idea it was such a problem. This document gives lots of helpful ways for non-Muslims to reduce Islamophobia.


NEWS IN A TIME WARP

...by the way the cartoon is apropos of nothing

I was on a gurney being wheeled into a forbidding theatre. I stretched to see a wall clock that showed 3.20. “This will help you relax”, said an anaesthetist shoving some pink stuff on my tongue. I figured this would be a good time to review my atheist status. Hmmm, not likely.
