Dear Pickering Posters, As you are all aware, I haven’t the time to spend moderating comments on this site. That’s a pity because the comments section is probably the best part of this blog. Unfortunately, our policy of freedom can be misinterpreted as “Free for all.”
After the last traumatic incident, my husband agreed for me and the children to leave immediately. Due to finances, we could not all leave at the same time. Consequently, I have been in Australia with my children for 7 months. I was not allowed to work for the first 3 months and lived from the support of family members and friends who helped us during this time. Many, at the time, were strangers.
Dear Australia, I am a Boer woman; a white South African born in the post-Apartheid era. I understand that the idea of Apartheid is very distasteful to many people in stable, Western, majority White nations.
Capitalism is evil. Rich white men start companies and constantly raise prices to gouge the consumers. Meanwhile, they employ poor, working class people and drive down their wages.
Applications are open for grants up to $40,000 for projects that encourage people from migrant and refugee backgrounds to participate in all Queensland has to offer. Multicultural Affairs Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the Celebrating Multicultural Queensland program funds community projects that help build a united, harmonious and inclusive Queensland.
In the last article, I talked about how capitalism and property rights were a step towards freedom. The previous system of Feudalism had ruled pretty much all agricultural societies from the beginning.
Our Westminster- based political system is far from perfect. Our major parties now appear to be increasingly influenced by powerful interests who promote policies hostile to traditional Australian values.
“Would you mind dropping me into Manchester please Harry?” “Sure thing boss,” I replied enthusiastically.” I liked the old man and enjoyed chatting with him. Most importantly however, it was a rare chance to drive him around in his car.
It’s often tempting to blame ignorance or laziness for the continual inability of the Australian press to name the left wing extremist organisations responsible for almost all political violence in this country.
Pheeew! That was a hectic couple of days. I’m no computer genius but according to my tech guy, we were HACKED!
Did I ever mention that words are important? Did I tell you to watch out when people start re-defining words? One of the greatest achievements of the Left in recent decades has been the redefining of the term “Right wing” to mean something that it patently isn’t.
Imagine the scene. A bunch of young, tattooed guys are hanging out in a local park. A girl walks past on a footpath. “Hey you!” Screams one of the gang “Get down on all fours when you walk past us to show some respect.”
There is nothing new about journalists in the mainstream media suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Watching supposedly respectable commentators like Rachel Maddow break down practically weeping when Trump won the election was sobering, to say the least.
With the announcement of Tommy Robinson’s (now delayed) tour of Australia, all the usual suspects have come out of the woodwork, with all the usual boring and predictable outrage.Barely pausing for breath, and without the slightest hint of the irony involved, they are now demanding that Peter Dutton defend our borders at all costs against this deadly threat.
RACIST! XENOPHOBIC! EVIL RIGHT WING! GENOCIDAL! MURDEROUS! SHAMEFUL! INEXCUSABLE! LITERALLY HITLER! I’m just jotting down some of the words and phrases that the ABC might use if the Australian Government took one million of our Muslims and detained them in camps sewing garments for sportswear companies whilst they were being re-educated.
Here at the Pickering Post, we have always had a soft spot for the underdog. We love to root for the battlers, the people who will stand up for what they believe, even when all the rest are against them.
Freedom is a funny thing. Everyone is in favour of freedom in some way, but few people understand what it actually is. That isn’t really all that surprising because freedom – total freedom that is- doesn’t really exist. There isn’t such a thing.
There is nothing worse than the sight of a grown man crying. We aren’t robots of course and sometimes we just have no choice. Like most of my gender however, I make every effort to shut myself somewhere out of sight or sound of anyone else before allowing myself to break down.
Dear Pickering Posters, Larry has asked me to give another update on his condition. Up until now, he hasn’t wanted to say too much as he hates to burden others with his problems.
As many of you have probably guessed, Larry is not feeling too well of late. He has however finally seen a doctor, much to his disgust, and is back at home recuperating. He continues to defy the medical profession with a constitution that Rasputin would have been proud of.
