Obama failed on one major issue Americans will not ignore. He failed to sustain eye contact with Romney. Whenever he was confronted he looked down and did not hold his gaze.
Tragic plane crashes because of cloud (which apparently this one was) can be avoided in non-IFR aircraft. When unexpectedly engulfed in cloud: First do not descend. Do a 180 degree turn. If the cloud has closed in behind you climb to 10,000ft. You cannot hit anything there and you can still breathe. Then ask Brisbane approach for a vector into Maroochydore or Brisbane airport. It seems operations were normal at the time the aircraft encountered cloud so fuel endurance should have been enough for even an alternate. We will never know but a crash is nearly always due to pilot error. Strange for a pilot of his experience.
A simple question to a child that simple magistrates have never grasped. Invariably, the child’s answer to this question without hesitation will be, “BOTH”... and that should be the basis of all judgment.
Not sure what radio station it was now but I did say about four months back that there was only one way this disaster could end: “These poor girls must return to Italy.”
Alan Jones is sitting at home organising another program on 2GB with a grin from ear to ear.
The ALP is still in a muck lather, excited at the prospect that it could castrate its most strident critic.
It wasn’t Alan Jones because he was addressing a private function. It wasn’t any member of the Young Libs. It certainly wasn’t Abbott. So who confronted Julia with this offensive remark? Who was it that brought the comment to national notice. If Julia was genuinely hurt by the remark, there is only one person responsible for hurting her: It was a certain ALP sympathiser, Jonathan Marshall. He was there to surreptitiously assist the ALP. Only the person who taped the address can be responsible because Julia would have no knowledge of the remark, even now, without his revelation.Has this person been asked to apologise? Hardly, when it was an ALP sanctioned act of political sabotage, at Julia’s expense, committed by Marshall, whose only aim was to embarrass Jones and provide manure to the ALP manure spreaders. Apparently Marshall and the ALP thought it was worth hurting Julia simply to achieve a gotcha on Jones. No wonder Left wing journalism is on a reputational footing with used car salesmen.
Woolworths’ false indignation does not extend beyond its cash registers. If it did, then the retailer might consider its vile determination to send Australian farmers to the wall in the pursuit of an extra margin. If Woolworths is genuine in its concern for propriety it would pull the plug on its thousands of poker machines that destroy the very same families it asks to buy its produce.
A close friend of mine once encountered a man of Bayley’s ilk.
This man broke into my friend's home in Sydney and raped his mother in front of his 10 year old sister and 4 year old brother. My friend was not home at the time.
This man then brutally murdered the two children in front of their bound mother, then murdered the mother. This man, too, was on parole. After his incarceration for this offence he escaped and promptly raped two 17 year old girls. He was imprisoned again. He was then allowed to send the two distraught girls a Xmas card each.There is no relief for my friend because this man continuously applies for further parole requiring submissions from the family and reopening fresh wounds that can’t ever heal. There is a sick delight for these type of people in antagonising their victims while enjoyably re-living the details of their crimes. Requests for legal/political correctness fall on deaf earsIf the ridiculous notion that the Bayleys of this world could ever be set free to murder again, it would be me who would be promptly charged with murder, and with no regrets, because this man’s face is tattooed on my brain.
His name is Cribb. My Friend’s name is Garry.
Woolworths and others need to decide who they are responsible to: Shareholders or politically correct bleeding hearts. Because they will be scurrying back to the Alan Jones’ program accepting a worse deal than before.
Facebook has refused to delete social networking sites expressing anger at the accused killer of Jill Meagher. Attorneys General are meeting to formulate plans to control what is considered a threat to the judicial process.
Now I wonder why that would be. Perhaps the competing nations for a UN seat have taken an interest?
Minister for Finance under Rudd, Lindsay Tanner, was once a mini moral compass for Labor along with A.G. Rob McClelland. Both have gone now. Tanner in disgust at what he knew and Mclelland sacked for daring to oppose the heroine of a Machiavellian plot the true believers will never forgive.
Tim Mathieson has taken to disappearing stage left when accompanying the PM.
The ALP has brought the filthy side of UK politics to Australia, and it has a stench of desperation. Scot, John McTernan, has made an art form of manufacturing dirt on opponents of Labour in the UK and now Labor in Australia. It is indeed ludicrous that Abbott’s uni days could in any way be compared to Gillard’s criminal background. But the Press will run with anything anti-Abbott. He has always desisted from personal attacks on Gillard, although it must be tempting to do so. He has consistently attacked policies only... and it will pay off for him. All opponents of Gillard should look out for the professional muckraking of McTernan. He is very, very good at it. Trouble is it has invariably blown up in the socialists’ faces. It is an indictment on Gillard that she would stoop to employ renowned UK grubs of McTernan’s calibre to counter her own background in communism and union fraud.
Restive Nauruan Members of Parliament have secretly been given all expenses paid Australian holidays in order to allay their stated fears of coping with thousands of asylum seekers.
The Gillard Government’s preoccupation with a two-year stint on the UN Security Council has cost Australia a great deal already.
