“When our people have totems, they never kill that totem because that totem looks after them,” he said.So what did they do for the alleged 40,000 years – eat ’em alive? It’s a pity we can’t have a cull of idiot groups like PETA and Animal Justice Party. Now that would make Australia a better place to live. These idiots will do anything to stop Aussies earning a dollar.
“It’s not easy to sit in a room with somebody like Scott Morrison and look him in the eye and know this is somebody who locked up young kids, but you have to get past that,” Di Natale told this newspaper.Well, I thought, if he has that opinion about Morrison who has been steadily releasing kids from refugee lock-ups, then he must have been apoplectic when the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd government were just as busily incarcerating them. It appears not, or at least I can’t find any record of him commenting on the matter then. I would suggest the good doctor has a lot to get past, starting with his political hypocrisy.
Yet Wilderness Society boss Alec Marr set about fulfilling Ayn Rand’s 1970 prophecy of the forthcoming anti-industrial revolution. The old Left merely wanted to take over the factories; the new Left wants to destroy them. In September 2013, a fortnight after Tony Abbott became Prime Minister, Marr recruited three marine welders and an electrician, locked the mill gates, stocked up with food and set about wrecking the logging plant. Journalist John van Tiggelen, who was invited to join in the vandalism, wrote a riveting account in The Monthly. “There was something wild-eyed about Marr, as if he were living a monkey-wrencher’s dream,” he wrote. “Marr had laid out a trove of new hardware: sledgehammers, axes large and small, angle grinders, spanners, pliers, bolt cutters and gloves. ‘For me, the sound of those grinders tomorrow will be the singing of angels,’ said Marr, grinning broadly.” Van Tiggelen decided to lend a hand, sawing through a rubber belt with a hacksaw. “With an almighty clatter the rubber flew down the rollers, top and bottom, the violence of it shaking the scaffolding like a truck had hit it … One down, 11 to go.” The denouement of this black-hearted act of sabotage was the toppling of the giant gantry, “the equivalent of downing the dictator’s statue”. So much for workers’ jobs and their families’ prosperity. The little people have never mattered much to the Greens in their single-minded pursuit of a “sustainable” economy, whatever that may mean.How can anyone vote for them?
The government and resource groups say the true motive of the global campaign to protect the reef is to end coalmining, an issue that also lies at the heart of the UN’s response to climate change.Greenpeace listed three concerns with the plan considered a key document in the UNESCO deliberations: it says it still allows coalmining, is silent on climate change and fails to address cumulative effects on the reef. Ah…you thought the battle was to protect the GBR. Wrong. It is part of the Green campaign to simply stop coal mining. Coal Mining that has lifted the world’s standard of living; that gives us in Australia a high standard of living and fuels our economy. The Greens want it closed down and replaced with renewable energy that cannot replace coal as a base-load power source. Greens Leader Milne;
Australia should scrap its potentially fatal coal industry. That’s the blunt message from Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne in response to forecasts the world is on track to record global warming of 4C by 2100, driven in part by the fossil fuel industry. “Four degrees is an unliveable planet, it is death to humanity,” Senator Milne told reporters in Hobart today.Considering that top climate scientists have admitted that their global warming forecasts are wrong and world is not heating at the rate they claimed it was in a key report, then Milne needs to shut up and stop inventing alarmist statements intent on frightening us into Greens submission. In the meantime the Greens also need to shut up about renewable energy until someone develops batteries that can store sufficient supply to power a city like Brisbane over the non-sunny, non windy times. Until then we need to just ignore the UN and their Green activists. The reef isn’t in danger, our economy and standard of living is!
What I want the review to look at is the criteria by which those decisions are made and whether that appropriately balances sustainability of the species with public safety,” he told ABC radio.”It could well be that a scientific survey will determine that that is an appropriate number or that it’s too high or too low. That’s the purpose of the review.”Obviously a Greenie. From the Australian government Dept of Environment
The total Australian population is currently estimated to be approximately 100 000, although some authors estimate the population is even higher; between 100 000 and 200 000 (Fukuda et al. 2007). The findings of a 10 year survey on the distribution and abundance of the Salt-water Crocodile in Queensland have been summarised by Read and colleagues (2004):So far this year 4 crocodiles have been moved in the Cairns area. That’s 4 and they are moved, not euthanized, so they continue to contribute to the sustainability of their species. Unlike the Greens.
“Banning refugees from fleeing west Africa is like shuttering up the windows while a house burns down,” Senator Hanson-Young said, calling for the decision to be reversed.Shuttering up the windows could be better than setting the entire neighbourhood on fire.
……. this does turn people off the political process. I find when these large amounts of money are handed over by corporate Australia, the public often become very cynical; they don’t think that they have much influence, and a lot of people then become quite angry about this.From 2011;
THE founder of travel website wotif.com donated a record $1.6 million to the Australian Greens election campaign.
It is the largest single political donation in Australian history.
The generous donation by Brisbane-based businessman Graeme Wood, who has an estimated wealth of $378.5m, formed the bulk of the Greens election campaign spending, according to an article in the Fairfax press.Lee Rhiannon didn’t agree with the donation then which is obviously why the ABC called her for comment but the Greens themselves were ecstatic. The Greens need to get their act together – it’s good or it’s no good. Either way if another corporation visits from another planet and thinks the Greens are worth donating money to, I doubt they’ll knock it back and Lee will again say how she disagrees with corporation donations. Hypocrit!
The chairwoman of the federal committee, Greens senator Penny Wright, said: “There is an expectation in the Australian public that the executive will be accountable . . . It is a really important democratic principle and there is a great concern in the community about the government’s lack of information about people arriving by boat.”Yes Penny, the executive need to be accountable and as I understand it Abbott promised to slow down then stop the boats and he is doing exactly that. I also understand that the Greens don’t want that to happen at all. They are on record as wanting open borders so Penny is really saying she just hates the way Abbott is protecting our borders. Seriously though, with all the noise across the media about the government’s handling of the situation and with or without expert advice on the parliament forcing disclosure, out in the public arena the majority of people are happy with how it is all turning out. The boats are stopping and that is all the disclosure we need.
