At the risk of offending what’s left of my 75 per cent of readers who scathingly disagree with me, I will make one final apolitical plea.
It would be nice to believe the deaths of 40 of our young blokes made a difference, and while we were there it probably did, but will it be worth their families’ endless pain when Islamic barbarism is again left to its own resources? How can foot soldiers change a culture of suicide for a cause when it took two atom bombs to change Japan’s ... and their allegiance was to a mere emperor.
“Whales must not be slaughtered but for a $5,000 baby bonus, late-term infants can be butchered in an equally bloody mess”: Greens. “Native animals’ habitat must not be back-burnt but people can be incinerated”: Greens.
Imagine an ice mass larger than all of Europe, or almost twice the size of Australia. Hard to conceive of anything that size, I know. Then imagine a little blue boat full of wankers approaching a little bay somewhere on the 32,000 km coastline of that ice mass determined to prove global warming.
After having been embarrassingly ice-locked in the Antarctic, 52 confused warmists are now wending their way back home while frantically scribbling amended theses on why they didn’t find palm trees, tropical fauna and a maitai bar at the foot of Mount Erebus.
WE, the people of a free nation of blokes, sheilas and the occasional wanker. We come from many lands (although a few too many of us come from New Zealand) and although we live in the best country in the world, we reserve the right to bitch and moan about it whenever we bloody like.
The current heatwave in Australia will inflame the carbonistas who will claim it is caused by wicked humans exhaling and exhausting carbon dioxide.
Hair shampoos, and particularly hair conditioners, make billions for chemical companies but they damage your hair causing dryness, lack of lustre and split ends. Your hair will look good for a day or two but it then reverts to a worse mess than it was before. Wanna know why?
In the last post I nonchalantly suggested that cancer and tobacco are not linked. I copped a heap of abuse including demands that I qualify such a ridiculous statement. Okay, here it is. It’s long and should only interest those who relish the truth.
Okay, so I’m in the minority. Almost 75% of you disagree with me on Premier Campbell Newman’s VLAD laws (can I suggest that Post poll result might be much lower on another forum?) Polarisation on this issue is staggering and that’s understandable.
Hi Larry, I am one of the Yandina 5 who was wrongfully arrested on November 1. I am also not a member of any so called motorcycle gang but my brother is and so is my father... that is where they are able to say I am “guilty by association”.
"A pizza with the lot" story yesterday has so far attracted 320,000 readers and over 5,000 shares and that’s just on Facebook. The debate is volatile.
Joshua Shane Carew sat in solitary confinement for 15 days in Bisbane's Watchhouse where there is no TV, no radio, just a basin, toilet and a concrete bed with one blanket. He is now in Queensland’s Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre. His wife and two young children Holly (4) and Jake (2) have missed him terribly over Christmas and he has not been allowed to phone them or have them visit him.
To compete in today’s world we need to score well on resource availability, capital assets, energy costs, tax burden and workforce/management. It also helps to have secure property rights and a sound currency. Today’s Australia scores poorly on all counts.
