Green Propaganda is Costly Here we go again, the expected critical onslaught and venom against the announced Coalition government’s revised energy plan from Labor, the Greens and the rest of the misguided, brainwashed activists’ who can’t see the wood for the trees; i.e., if any are left because global tree clearing continues at an alarming rate by reducing the planet’s ability to absorb carbon dioxide and convert it to oxygen. Yes, Turnbull has just pulled another ‘rabbit out of the hat’ and again by placing his metaphorical cat amongst the policy pigeons; it’s really about time all this politically

Peninsula Paradise Lost? Australia is currently enduring one of her most significant residential property building binges in our recent modern history. The NSW business elites have recently come together in an historic call on government to compel our elected leaders to stay the course and keep innovating and to be thinking big. This demand generated construction rampage has been influenced by a government inspired ‘Ponzi Scheme merry-go-round’ economy whose banking system largely underpinned by an official and artificially stage-managed construction boom fuelled by a voodoo economics’ cherished high immigration stance. Once peaceful oases of calm occupying the fringes of

‘Western Sydney’s Aerotropolis’ + at what additional cost? Reported in the Daly Telegraph by Matthew Benns & Clarissa Bye; “Plane and gain for the west”, October, 12 {page 8} A fully developed western Sydney Airport could inject $22 Billion into the economy and create another 60,000 jobs, this article indicates; it must be further noted in this piece the figures suggested are for an airport at full capacity. Who came up with the 60,000 jobs estimate? However, Western Sydney must take care to avoid the mistakes of other second city airports around the world, which include Ciudad in Madrid,

Elderly Cost Cutting My esteemed mate and popular super radio network colleague Dave Sutherland usually signs-off from his shows with the phrase, “Be kind to your children because they choose your nursing home!” It seems never a more accurate sentiment has been expressed. I have spoken before in this segment about abuse of the elderly; so today I wish to revisit that theme and to focus in particular on the quality of care available to residents of our nation’s Aged Care facilities. Elder abuse is defined by the world health organisation (WHO) as a single or repeated act, or

Go the NIMBYS! The State Government is encouraged by the Business Council of Australia to think big when it comes to our future but at what cost! Who pays, it’s you the voter-taxpayer not the Business Community? Don’t they now know that any assets of value that was producing rivers of gold income streams for the Government are now gone, after already being flogged-off by ‘fire sale’ Mike!  Our asset cupboard is now Baird!  [Taxation being the only remaining means to raise state revenue].

Today we have another important issue to discuss, because in just a few hours hundreds of goldminers, drillers, truckers, plant operators and family members will be attending a rally on the steps of Parliament House in Perth.  It’s rather refreshing to talk about holding a rally on the steps of a house of parliament.  You cannot

Money, Money, Money Cash, cash, cash as every Chinese tourist and overseas student jumps on the ‘daigou’ bandwagon making arrangements to sell Australian product directly offshore to China and Asia through friends, relatives and business connections; independent of Australia’s official exporting processes. So, meanwhile our government yet again sits on their metaphorical hands and does nothing. ‘Daigous’ are clandestine co-ordinated ant like armies of supposed personal shoppers who descend upon Australia’s local shopping malls and pillage through supermarkets, departments stores and pharmacies for purchase of retail items ordinarily reserved for Aussies that are instead regularly exported to Asia, usually

Bambi said he had been watching from afar and thought Gladys Berejiklian was doing an awesome job. Why is the immediate-past former Premier so supportive of Gladys?  Probably because they are one in the same. She is following his policies.

The simmering South China Sea dispute between Mainland China and various Asian Countries is, with the exception of Islamic Terror and Kim’s bizarre North Korea, one of Australia’s most inescapable security challenges to be faced by our people since the end of World War II  that saw surrender by the Japanese empire. At stake is our long term security relationship with the United States’ and our ineludible trade relationship with the PRC; both demanding greater commitments from Australia which risk becoming mutually exclusive.

Australia, the land of Kookaburra laughter After reading an article in Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph entitled “No respect in equality” I thought I was in ‘coo-coo’ land waking up from some hallucinatory substance in total disbelief of the stupidity of society today. The article stated that the trade unions, apparently utterly hijacked by social justice warriors and in another moment of insanity, decided to pressure Australia Post into boycotting delivering “No” campaign material relating to the bizarre same sex marriage ABS postal survey. Wait for it, it gets better; vulnerable unionists’ evident reason for this outrageous bullying tactic is that

All of us are aware of defining events which changed or made history.  I’ll mention just a few. On December 16, 1773 the Boston Tea Party led to the American War of Independence which has profoundly interested human events for nearly three and a half centuries. On 16 July 1833, thanks to the tireless efforts of William Wilberforce, the Abolition of Slavery Bill passed its third reading in the House of Commons. On the 24th of October 1889 in Tenterfield just South of the Border between New South Wales and Queensland, Sir Henry Parks made a speech calling for Federation

Greens Hyperventilating Hanson-Young of the Greens party is waffling again. This time she’s lost the plot reportedly saying “You are putting the entire country at risk” reacting to Senator Pauline Hanson wearing a burqa in parliament to demonstrate the fact that this type of head wear is a security risk. It was reported Hanson-Young continued her tirade with “You are doing ISIS’s work for them.” “You are putting the entire country at risk.” She also told Senator Hanson that the next terrorist attack would be “on your head”.

Constipation increases dramatically as you age and can be especially problematic during your senior years. But this becomes much more than an embarrassing problem when you consider that your cardiovascular risk is rising right along with it. It’s the constipation/heart attack connection that most people
