SOMETHING SHOULD BE DONE ABOUT ZIKA

... before it affects normal people

Doctors concerned over the Zika virus have said that the Olympics must be either cancelled or relocated. Well, that’s not going to happen! But the Zika scourge can be minimised by not getting pregnant or if you are already pregnant don’t do a Peter Allen unless you want a baby that resembles Kim Jong-un.


DON’T TELL OBAMA OUR REEF IS NOT ENDANGERED

... or you might finish up in the slammer

When President Obama used Australia as a platform to tell the world our Great Barrier Reef was something his grandchildren would not see due to global warming, Tony Abbott ensured he was preaching only to dumb University students who had their hearts set on marine biology jobs.


FROM SOFT LEFT TO HARD RIGHT IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE A QUID

Mark Latham looks more like a CFMEU cage fighter than a political commentator. And anyway he is more of an opinionator than a commentator but lately he has shuffled to the Right to become a regular with a giggling Alan Jones on SKY.


ETS – carbon tax – starts in 5 weeks!


DO AUSSIE TAXPAYERS DONATE TO ME?

... oh yes they do!

The Clinton Foundation agreed to notify the US State Department of any foreign donations. This was to ensure there were no conflicts of interest with foreign governments seeking goodwill with the Secretary of State by donating­ money to what was then her husband’s foundation.


I HAVE BECOME UN-AUSTRALIAN...and it’s not a nice feeling


TALIBAN LEADER COPS A ROCKET

While embattled PM Nawaz Sharif complains that Obama has violated Pakistan’s sovereignty by blowing Taliban leader, Mullah Akhtar Mansour into mince meat in a drone strike marginally inside Pakistan territory, he is lucky that Obama didn’t do what he should have done... destroy the Afghan poppy fields that the Taliban and Afghanis rely on for their war effort and the Pakistanis reach across their northern border for a sizable piece of the action


HMMM, WHAT DO WE CALL THIS ONE?

After around 12 hours of misinformation, denials and uninformed aviation garbage, European leaders like France’s Hollande are close to spluttering that the MS 804 crash could be related to terrorism... but that doesn’t make it Islamic terrorism does it Mr President?



NOW YOU KNOW WHY ABBOTT REFUSED TO FLICK HER

She is honest, up front, superbly intelligent, fearless, she’s not a politician and she’s a breath of fresh air when compared to those comfortably nestled in the mire of biased political commentary.



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.

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.
