Debating the injustice of a GST levied on tampons in Federal Parliament may have got a few grubby Lefties from Q&A all moist but it did nothing for the serious side of the issue. The GST, we are told ad nauseam, is a States’ issue and all must get together and agree to any changes, but we all know that isn’t going to happen when it comes to tampons, or anything else.
He has the female trait of never disclosing his age but broadcaster Alan Jones is (or is about to turn) 74 and he’s not going anywhere. Dipping his toe into the gay debate yesterday is absolutely his style after spending his entire life hiding the fact that he is gay.
I realise the risk of sounding repetitive over the past four years (so I promise, after this rant, not to mention it again) but the Man Monis Inquiry is now highlighting the dangerous evolution of our various security agencies.
A report that the Administration knew of the proposed onslaught by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria as long ago as three years is like water of a duck’s back to Obama who has nonchalantly surrendered and vacated America’s role as the world’s hotspot moderator.
Today - despite a week full of paedophile enablers and deranged beheaders wanting to come back to the comfort of Australia due to a lack of decent food, TV, nice beds and warmth where they are beheading people at the moment - I am a happy man!
“The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse” is a carefully worded title constructed by the Gillard Government and its terms of reference were carefully constructed so as to ensure the Commission goes nowhere near ALP constituencies surrounding mosques.
It’s difficult listening to the endless line of shattered people who have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the rulers of religious institutions. Incurable paedophiles have always been attracted to where young children are freely available but Cardinal Pell is more guilty than any of his flock of child molesters because he allowed this culture of sexual abuse to fester and continue unabated.
Some seven thousand of the most ruthlessly persecuted people in the world are floating at sea in rickety marine coffins, slowly dying through disease, dehydration and starvation. These despised Rohingya people are Sunni Muslim as opposed to Burma’s (Myanmar’s) majority Buddhists and are rejected and turned back out to sea to die as unwanted vermin even by Islamic nations, including Indonesia.
The most precious thing a bereaved little boy can cling to is that his brave soldier dad died making the world a better place for others. Barack Obama has deprived him even of that. Forty Australian families and 4,000 American families will now need to look forever at a photo on a wall and think, “what an awful waste”.
What’s happening to our ore price is no more than free enterprise in action but of course the Greens and Labor can’t spell the words “free enterprise”. At the very mention of ore they want to tax multinationals even further offshore, they want a bigger share of the smaller cake and they want to impress on everyone that our minerals belong to all of us.
Union thugs make excellent union thugs but they never make Prime Ministers and that’s why the Labor Party needs to find a way to replace Bill Shorten. His polling numbers have only ever reflected the public’s dissatisfaction, or otherwise, with Tony Abbott.
In all the hoo-haa of budget week Senator Cory Bernardi managed to put forward and win an inquiry into third party certification schemes in Australia. This is great news. It includes, but is not limited to, halal certification.
So far this year, approximately $1.3 billion in Federal funding, including another half billion dollars announced in Tuesday's budget, has been earmarked to counter the increasing threat of radical Islam. But Muslim leaders want that money spent on “de-radicalising” their youth rather than on national security measures.
The crimes committed by the Islamic State (or the ‘death cult’ as Tony Abbott likes to refer to it) are no worse than those committed during any other war except that, for the first time in history, a war is being fought using Utube and highly professional production crews.
The Royal Commission into Unions has advised in an interim report that many union officials should be charged over accusations regarding the misuse and/or theft of union members’ funds.
