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

“Electrickery”  The topic on everybody’s minds at the moment is energy prices for households and for businesses. Only, in case anybody doesn’t understand; what is a business? I work for a broadcasting business. They are a vehicle for entrepreneurs’ who by taking personal financial risks and other administrative burdens onto themselves they strive to innovate society and make some extra money for themselves and their families. Society is benefited by the products or services we consume as inputs and society gains from the enhancements through finished items or services supplied to others; in our case broadcasting to reward our

Stupidity or a Con Job ……..

Australia is fast becoming a manufacturing wasteland with many business operators caving in under the exorbitant cost of energy so it’s no surprise to see them close or take their business offshore. Its plainly obvious to we lay people that governments of all persuasions either care little for this country and the hard workers who slave to keep the money flowing or don’t have the common sense or political acumen to govern. Politicians, once elected have a free pass to make foolish policy decisions, to place the country in jeopardy, to exploit interests they benefit from, to change rules

Cracked – Fractured – Broken

How else should one describe the disorder the world is experiencing and how has it reached the point of no return? Since the end of the Second World War it was hoped that peace would prevail throughout the globe and societies would embrace the opportunity to advance themselves and prosper. Fast forward to 2017 and take a snapshot of life on planet earth. It’s not what the masses envisaged. Conflict, discord and dissension are the norm and humans are becoming more and more desensitised to the violence, rape and pillage on the streets with no end in sight of

Blackouts Stalk Green Energy Utopia OR GREENTOPIA! Today, I wish to illustrate what a Green Utopia will be like to live in. In doing so I wish to firstly thank the Queensland based Carbon-sense coalition and also Mark Latham’s insightful Daily Telegraph ‘opinion piece’ published yesterday. Here Goes: It is 7pm on a cold still night in the city which boasts “100% Green Energy”. Thousands of electric cars are in their garages plugged into chargers; electric lights, heaters and TVs are running; electric stoves are cooking dinner, electric trains and lifts are moving late commuters and early revellers, and

‘Fire sale Baird’ at it again. As Reported in the Weekend Australian’s Business Review of July 22; Page 25 “Banker Baird wants piece of US infrastructure action” by Andrew White. This is further illuminated again in the July 22nd Sydney Morning Herald’s Business day [page 3]; entitled “Baird eyes gains from asset recycling” by Clancy Yeates.  The former premier kicked off a massive wave of privatisations and infrastructure buildings, and now as a banker Mike Baird is hoping to repeat the ploy on an unassuming international stage.  He helped pioneer asset recycling by privatising the NSW public’s assets such

Power Failure As Australia takes another step toward becoming a Latin American style basket case economy run by incompetent narcissistic dreamers squabbling over their ability to have a better idea than others when it comes to managing the country; the class divide gets wider by the day. Meanwhile on struggle street the hard working masses, the aged and infirm are about to be kicked in the guts again with the energy kingpins about to increase their costs by almost 20% in some cases. So what happened to the government promises? All governments, state and federal promised lower energy prices

Polly’s Perks Up – Pensioners and People Down!

The Forgotten It’s wonderful news – our Polly’s are getting another pay rise of 2% and naturally they are at arm’s length from the decision makers who authorised this decision. It’s an amazing system that politicians have created where they get automatic pay increases adjudicated by the independent Remuneration Tribunal. Who put this Tribunal in place and who controls it? Yes you guessed it, the government! Apparently the Tribunal said it had received “notable increases in submissions” asking for pay rises “based at least in part on private sector remuneration” in a sign some public servants felt they weren’t
