SBY BUSINESS IS NONE OF SHY's BUSINESS

The Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young has no respect for, nor concept of, security matters regarding our sovereignty. Her demands for disclosure will fall on deaf ears as an Abbott team continues to successfully mend the borders Kevin Rudd broke.


HOWZAT WORK?


A HOT ESKIMO



SAY GOODBYE TO SBY

Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, is playing a clever game of illegal boat chess while Bill Shorten is the boy looking on without a clue how each man moves. This is how the game is panning out and the Indonesian Government doesn’t even know, or care, that a chess game is going on.


IT'S BEEN EASY BEING GREEN

... but it's about to get a lot harder

The Federal Government is slowly dismantling the Green rorts promoted under Gillard... it was a very expensive three years. Union heavies may have “gifted” the top job to a known communist crook but she then needed to sleep with the Greens to keep it. The ALP looks back on the marriage with dismay as it now tries to divorce itself from the wreckage of that unholy alliance.


YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOUR TAXES GO, DO YOU?

Hope you are seated for this because it could ruin your day. “Effects of climate change could hinder a sea snail’s ability to leap away from predators on one foot”, Queensland researchers say. Did I read that right?


MEET OUR NEW VLAD OPPONENT

At the risk of offending what’s left of my 75 per cent of readers who scathingly disagree with me, I will make one final apolitical plea.



RODMAN A TOOL... in the hands of Kim Jong-un


AFGHANISTAN, THE FINAL FOLLY

It would be nice to believe the deaths of 40 of our young blokes made a difference, and while we were there it probably did, but will it be worth their families’ endless pain when Islamic barbarism is again left to its own resources? How can foot soldiers change a culture of suicide for a cause when it took two atom bombs to change Japan’s ... and their allegiance was to a mere emperor.



"SHARKS CAN KILL PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE CAN'T KILL SHARKS": Greens

“Whales must not be slaughtered but for a $5,000 baby bonus, late-term infants can be butchered in an equally bloody mess”: Greens. “Native animals’ habitat must not be back-burnt but people can be incinerated”: Greens.


THE SCARE SCAM IS WELL AND TRULY SUNK

Imagine an ice mass larger than all of Europe, or almost twice the size of Australia. Hard to conceive of anything that size, I know. Then imagine a little blue boat full of wankers approaching a little bay somewhere on the 32,000 km coastline of that ice mass determined to prove global warming.


GLOBAL WARMING PUT ON ICE?

After having been embarrassingly ice-locked in the Antarctic, 52 confused warmists are now wending their way back home while frantically scribbling amended theses on why they didn’t find palm trees, tropical fauna and a maitai bar at the foot of Mount Erebus.


We are Australian

WE, the people of a free nation of blokes, sheilas and the occasional wanker. We come from many lands (although a few too many of us come from New Zealand) and although we live in the best country in the world, we reserve the right to bitch and moan about it whenever we bloody like.


Dear Ms Roxon,

Hair shampoos, and particularly hair conditioners, make billions for chemical companies but they damage your hair causing dryness, lack of lustre and split ends. Your hair will look good for a day or two but it then reverts to a worse mess than it was before. Wanna know why?



TOBACCO FIBS

In the last post I nonchalantly suggested that cancer and tobacco are not linked. I copped a heap of abuse including demands that I qualify such a ridiculous statement. Okay, here it is. It’s long and should only interest those who relish the truth.


I WANT SOME OF WHAT NEWMAN'S ON

Okay, so I’m in the minority. Almost 75% of you disagree with me on Premier Campbell Newman’s VLAD laws (can I suggest that Post poll result might be much lower on another forum?) Polarisation on this issue is staggering and that’s understandable.
