WHY SUPER IS INFERIOR

Better make your own pre-death arrangements where super is concerned because the only people making money now are the shysters in Parliament and those in control of your money. 


Mal-adroit


FAIRFAX PRESS PASSES ON IN A PILE OF PARTISAN POO



ARE BLEWITT AND KERNOHAN ABOUT TO HAVE THEIR DAY IN COURT?

...Wilson, Gillard and a band of others hope not

Sarah McNaughton SC has been appointed by Senator Brandis as Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. Is this appointment a forerunner to the prosecution of Ralph Blewitt and Bruce Wilson?


A PANORAMIC VIEW TO DIE FOR

... well, at least it will make you feel sick

Wind power is certainly a major global industry but it’s only producing in the order of 1.4% of the world’s total electricity. And solar is so pathetically low that it needs to be bundled up with “tidal and wave” power to even register at 0.1%.



IS TURNBULL'S TEAM SMART ENOUGH TO TACKLE SHORTEN'S?

...in a word, "No".

For the first time no major Party deserves the thinking person’s vote. Shorten is a disastrous option to most people and Turnbull is a worry who will take the nation, in lockstep with Shorten, into a third world wonderland of Alice’s nightmares.


I'LL RUN DOWN REGENT STREET NAKED WITH A SAUSAGE STUCK UP MY BUM IF WE GET A MUSLIM MAYOR"

...Conservative UK media chick Katie Hopkins

"My halal sausages are in order. I am a woman of my word." She tweeted yesterday after the vertically challenged Labour Party Muslim, Sadiq Khan, won the powerful position of Mayor of London.



LOOKS LIKE THE ELECTORAL OFFICE HAS STUFFED UP AGAIN!

The following are instructions on how to vote in the Senate from the AEC’s web page. Similar instructions are shown on the AEC’s television advertising. The trouble is that the instructions are plain wrong... or else the enacted legislation is wrong.


WHERE IS AUSTRALIA’S DONALD TRUMP?

I was one of many who thought Trump could not win the nomination, not because I didn’t want him to win, but because I thought the GOP would kill his bid, and they tried hard. But his win has been so conclusive, so definitive, no-one would dare to deny his legitimacy... so look out, the Don has shown how much smarter he is than the GOP establishment and he’s about to show just how much smarter he is than the Democratic politically correct class.


WHO USED TO SIT HERE?

Treasurer Morrison’s highly aspirational forecast for a reclaimed surplus by 2021-22 is predicated on a consistent 5 per cent GDP growth rate over multiple years. Well, you cannot get more aspirational than that, considering he is forecasting double the average GDP growth rate of OECD nations.


A NOTHING BUDGET

... with a little nothing for everyone

Of the many Canberra budget lockups I have been in, this one is the first time the authors of the budget should have been locked up instead of the journos. It is a budget which is framed entirely for the coming election and completely ignores Moody's close eye on Labor’s dangerous deficit. Loss of an AAA rating will impact on every man, woman and child in Australia.


IT TAKES A GENIUS TO MAKE SHORTEN LOOK GOOD WHILE LOSING A 30 SEAT COALITION MAJORITY

... have we underestimated Turnbull’s genius?

Not only that but he has ensured six more years for some of the most moronic senators ever to grace the upper House and a Double Dissolution that could easily backfire with the distinct possibility that a joint sitting could lack the numbers to pass one single Bill! And this bloke has been able to achieve all this in less than a year. Remarkable effort!


THE UGLY FACE OF THE LEFT IS FOMENTING GENDER DIVISION EVERYWHERE

...everywhere except in the toilet, that is

While boring old conservatives like me scratch our heads over sexually specific gender wars, we should not have to worry about which public toilet to use. Aborigines had no specific areas set aside for a leak. It was squat if you’re a female, stand up if you’re a bloke and if anyone wanted to look, they came away sorely disappointed. Unisex toilets have been here for yonks, in fact there is at least one in every household you visit.


MANUS IS PNG’s PROBLEM

PM Rudd’s last minute arrangement for illegal immigrants, made with PNG during the 2013 election, was nothing more than a one page memorandum of understanding... no contract and not even an agreement was signed. The MOU was hurriedly drawn up between roast pig and betel nut banquets. But the $30 million of Aussie taxpayers’ funds handed over to the brawling savages did seal the deal. It was typically just another of Rudd's arrangements.



 “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, KEEP YOUR TRAP SHUT!"

Security agencies and police forces still insist that we keep the Muslim hierarchy on-side so that they can dob in their “radicalised” kids who are showing signs of terrorist activities. Strange but it seems the families and mosques of these “radicalised” youths invariably insist on their innocence or they are actually involved in the same terrorist activity themselves.
