When a political Party is swept to power, as Abbott’s Coalition was, it seems undemocratic that it is prevented from enacting its legislation, no matter how odious it may be, by a rag-tag unrepresentative Senate... half of whom were elected in another political age.
But over in the US it is the coldest series of winters in living memory. "I can't remember and I don't think anyone else can remember this much snow falling in this short a period," said Mark Poloncarz of Erie County in Buffalo New York.
Why is Abbott doing so poorly in the polls despite the electorate’s distaste for Labor’s recent and current history? Labor’s incompetence and criminality is still fresh in swinging voters’ minds, but their options are few.
Last Saturday the United Arab Emirates blacklisted 82 separate organisations, including Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic State (ISIS) as terror groups in line with Federal anti-terrorism legislation.
Don’t know about you but I have always loved the Chinese people. I love their culture, their honesty, their work ethic and their yummy food. I spent countless nights of my youth in China Town playing fan tan ‘til daybreak. We would sit talking over many beers for hours although none of us could speak the other’s language.
The new Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg, known more affectionately as “Iron Erna” began a program which targets and deports immigrants who have ties to radical groups or have committed violent crimes while in Norway.
The unquestioning media said nothing when that member of the lauded UK intelligentsia, Bob Geldoff, caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of children. No-one ever accused Geldoff and his “Feed the World” campaign of this atrocity. Why?
The University of Queensland, along with a bevy of the ALP Left, was the perfect venue for guaranteed applause when President Obama promised to achieve something that he will never need to deliver.
Australian of the year Adam Goodes has decided to rubbish his own country (or should I say the white inhabitants of his own country) as an invited guest to the Ol’ Dart.
The only bloke they neither cheered nor booed at Gough’s wake was the irrepressible Kevin07. He has been in the “best forgotten” bin for a while now but you can bid on a bit of nostalgia now that his house is up for sale... but you’ll need to do something about that bathroom.
Christine Milne’s little team is doing handstands and high fiving each other over China’s announcement that it will continue to dramatically increase its CO2 emissions for the next 16 years. WTF? And they wonder why we believe in post natal abortions for Greens... well any time prior to puberty anyway?
The Fairfax Left has opted for “GAME CHANGER” and is glowing in orgasmic delight that global warmth is about to be addressed globally. Unfortunately it’s simply not true. The joint announcement of CO2 reductions by China and the US is tantamount to an announcement that the two majors have resolved to do absolutely nothing but what they are doing already.
I have to own up to being the “cretin”, “amateur blogger” and “renegade” that Mr Chris Smith of 2GB and his offsider, Ian Dodd, described me as. Well, Mr Smith has demonstrated that he still doesn’t get halal and he won’t get it by reading an overnight blog of mine.
He intends giving a halal certifier the microphone tomorrow to explain how the extortion racket works. Kirralie Smith of halalchoices.com.au rang Mr Smith’s producer, Ian Dodd, to ask if she could present the alternative case. Mr Dodd called her an “idiot” and suggested that she should call in like everyone else if she had something to say.
I was tempted to use a different headline; “Shirtlifter Gets Shirtfronted” but that would have been grossly homophobic, so I will stick with that one.
There is a free app available that identifies companies who are paying halal fees. I have used it and it works. By scanning the bar code of any product with your phone camera it will tell you whether the manufacturer of that product is halal certified or not
