She Did It Again Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks, like they're having now in Europe. Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT... Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.' 'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.' 'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language! .. ...
From Mike Smith's website. Next step in The AWU Scandal. Success has many fathers; failure is an orphan. Many careers have been built around the corrupt union/Labor web so carefully assembled over the past 20 years and there was much self interest driving that union/business/complex success. As it crumbles the self-interest driver will shift and the Tsunami will be frightening for the unprepared. Some time soon, it could be as soon as Monday next week, scales will fall from eyes like autumn leaves. The breeze will shift and its odour will be unmissable; more and more twitching noses will sniff it and decide that the time is right to tell what they always knew. Chief Magistrate Peter Lauritsen's most significant decision to date in The AWU Scandal hearing was an unusual one, a gutsy one, a very pro-public-interest decision and one that has set in chain an irreversible sequence of events. Now it's just timing. That decision was the Chief Magistrate's decision to release Detective Sergeant Ross Mitchell' ...

Just reading a book called "the stalking of Julia Gillard" fantastic read, if anyone had reservations about the character of K Rudd or the honesty of the Australian Media, then this read will prove you correct... And on the new government, well they have set the bar as far as honesty goes in politics. So much so that they have changed position on the Gonski reform implemented by the Gillard government 4 times, the last one based on polls... And they have lied already in government just as they lied in opposition. It's one thing to accuse someone of dishonesty and completely another to live up to their own angelic character's that they have ensured the Australian electorate they possess... Abbott will have to let a lot go through to the keeper while in office, but of course he can't because it will prove him to be the the *** he is. What sort of *** claims we must stop spending and then asks to raise the debt ceiling? What kind of *** claims we are broke but takes the ACT government to the high court ...

GuardianLetter: lmerofoz: The Liberals rant on about a 44% increase in education funding and no improvement but that was what Better schools was about (sadly past tense used), targeting the funds. The reason a 44% increase in funding was needed was because Howard and Liberal governments had taken so much out. The reason State Premiers were asked to sign for the money was for federal scrutiny, because Julia Gillard believed the state governments could not be trusted to not remove some of the funds. She had a reason for this, such as when Labor gave the Liberal state government 900 million to shore up their under funded health system (state responsibility) they removed 600 million from their state budget and used the federal money, then used the media to blame Labor.

Oh bugger I missed Piers on Insiders yesterday.! Ooops he wasn't so it was worth missing! Piers Akerman Sunday, December 01, 2013 (9:38am) IT came as no surprise to be quoted by the extravagantly paid Tony Jones, the host of the ABC’s Green-Left oriented Q & A program, last Monday as he sought to justify the taxpayer-funded media organisation’s attack on Australian-Indonesian relations. Jones’ sniggering, simpering remarks are usually aimed at the luvvies and no doubt he hoped to embarrass me and all those in the media who believe that the national interest might just trump the public interest occasionally. During a program which featured an extraordinary riff about a truly inexplicable conspiracy theory from the human rights lawyer Julian Burnside, Jones reverenced my view in response to a serious question from Roslyn Coutinho, who asked: “The Australian public trust and value the ABC as a source of truth, however, the Indonesian phone tapping story could potentially have negative consequences fo ...

Canada is a country of immigrants about 98% of Canadians have an ancestry from afar. Though most of us are have a European ancestry and are of a Christian heritage there are some immigrants that are from Asia and Africa as well with different religious backgrounds. I agree in most part that the former primeminister of Australia the Right Honourable Julia Gillard has a point that Australia like Canada has a certain and destinct cultural traditional way of doing things. That includes immigration and if new immigrants whom arrive here and don't like our Canadian cultural traditions than those immigrants are free to return to there original homeland. Canada and Australia are based Judieo Christian values and traditions. I myself was raised both in the Anglican and Catholic traditions and Canada has 2 state religions Anglican and Roman Catholic. Both religions are entrenched in both of Canada's constitutions of March 29th 1867 and April 17th 1982. Also written in both of Canada's constitutions is the fo ...
I have always said and believed what Julia Gillard has expounded here. Good on ya!! I think it's time, that we as Canadians, need to find a new leader that has a much bigger set of balls than Stephen Harper's and us as Canadians take this issue more seriously before it's too late. Time to take back our status as the MAJORITY and establish our RIGHTS, SECURITY and FREEDOMS!! Immigrants were given opportunities to come to Canada...they also have the opportunity to leave if they don't like it here! As an incentive, I think Harper and Parliament should offer and personally pay for their one-way tickets out of Canada.
Given the stick they gave Julia Gillard over her statement regarding the carbon tax. This situation not only makes Abbott a liar, but also a fkn hypocrite.
When Julia Gillard changed her mind on the carbon tax she was ruthlessly and mercilessly attacked by the media and the liberals for her entire tenure as a liar. So, as the media agrees that Tony Abbott broke a promise about Gonsky, why aren’t they accusing him as a liar too? Is it because of bias?? I wonder.
The Chief Electoral Officer, Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) PO Box 6172, Kingston, 2604, Australian Capitol Territory (ACT) Dear Chief Electoral Officer Is it not true that a ‘Charge and Summons’ naming Prime Minister Ms Julia Gillard with treason, was issued on the 29th January 2007,(some three and a half years ago?). Further to that, is it not true that this charge of treason has been fraudulently and criminally concealed by the accused, since the date of enactment up to and inclusive of the present date?(Copy of Charge and Summons as was served on Ms. Gillard in 2007 is enclosed) Should not Julia Gillard have stood down when the criminal charge was filed and served and should she not have disclosed these facts to the public? The indictable concealment remains concealed today despite section 44(1) and 44(II) of the Commonwealth Constitution. Does that not require that any such charged person be disqualified from sitting in either house of the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia? Does ...
"The key defect in what is now known as Gonski is that Labor gutted the plan of genuine forward-thinking reform and ensured that it was about nothing more than cash handouts which Labor would place on the national credit card." P.A. Too good not to share. This is why I'll reserve judgement on Pyne and Abbott. If money needs to be thrown anywhere, it should be at training semi-literate teachers correct English (and Science! eg the AGW/CC hoax) and getting back to basics in the teaching of same in the classroom. CJO. Education systems need hard lesson Piers AkermanThursday, November 28, 2013 THE feral critics of federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne made one simple but seriously-flawed assumption when they attempted to savage him over the former Labor government’s terminally damaged Gonski education reform. In the collective view of the leftists at the ABC and Fairfax Media, the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd Labor governments possessed some degree of competency. That’s a bad place from which to make any *** . ...

How can anyone feel sorry for Kevin Rudd? I've just read on Brisbane's Courier Mail online site that the former PM and Member for Griffith is demanding the Abbott Government use taxpayers' funds to pay for two Brisbane offices with staff as well as the obligatory world travel costs and the $200 000 a year pension he'll receive for life. He joins a queue of former PM's with their collective snouts in the public trough. Julia Gillard wants taxpayer offices in Melbourne and Adelaide, but has already been knocked back on one. John Howard's Sydney office costs us $300 000 a year, Paul Keating $140 000 a year, Bob Hawke's $130 000pa, Malcolm Fraser $200 000 pa and Gough Whitlam $125 000 pa. Current PM Tony Abbott was never going to knock back the Rudd an Gillard requests, since he'll be in for a slice of the same action once his career is over. If retired PM's were still working for us, or were struggling to make ends meet I would have no issue supporting them. They would deserve that respect. Unless I have mis ...

Gillard to PM: Follow Obama example FORMER Prime Minister Julia Gillard has suggested Tony Abbott follow the example of US President Barack Obama and provide Indonesia with an explanation of spying allegations. But she stopped short of saying the Prime Minister apologise for the actions of Australia's electronic spy agency in 2009. Ms Gillard said it was not appropriate for her to comment on intelligence matters but she praised the way Mr Obama handled similar allegations of US phone taps on German Chancellor Angela Merkel. "If he had been aware he wouldn't have authorised it, and he could certainly say for the future that it wouldn't happen again," she told CNN. "I think that that's an appropriate response from Australia to Indonesia at this very difficult time." Labor MP Matt Thistlethwaite repeated Opposition Leader Bill Shorten's suggestion earlier in the week that Mr Abbott consider the same approach. "Barack Obama appears to have been able to calm the situation and normalise relations by taking acti ...

Bring down the Abbott Government! The Abbott government has been in power a couple of months. He is threatening to sack twelve thousand public servants. This is a serious attack on not just the servants and their families. It is also an attack on those remaining who will no doubt have to work harder and the public who will receive poorer service. The CSIRO will suffer serious cuts and many scientists face losing their employment. If you don’t believe in the science of climate change why pay scientists? These job losses must be fought. Factory committees must be organised to resist this offensive. Not one worker out the gate! Public servants need solidarity from other workers There are other attacks. He is extending the Basics Card to all unemployed (previously it only applied to the Northern Territory and some select areas. He has re-introduced the ABCC industrial court to penalise militant unionists. This is all bad. But it is not as severe as Thatcherism. Many right wing critics consider him soft. He ...

Australian Greens are more concerned with stuff like illegal arrivals and *** marriage than they are with endangered species. For the most part they are shunned by international Green groups as far too politically radical. A desperate Julia Gillard gave them partnership in Government and suddenly media were shoving mikes in their unusual faces demanding commentary... a dream-like promotion based on a rag-tag balance of power in the Senate, and way beyond their political station. Media still seeks out leader, Christine Milne, for comment despite the Greens having one sole member in the 150 member House and the fact they are about to lose all influence in the Senate. This miniscule, oddball movement is now in a vacuum deciding what to hate next. The Greens calling is back to their destructive Green roots protecting the pobblebonk frog and chaining themselves to old growth trees, now that their political ...

Australia Report And Update 15 November 2013 Greetings members and friends, Following the Federal election in September and the advent of a new government, this week saw the official swearing in of the new Parliament, the 44th since Federation in 1901. High on the agenda is the new government’s promised legislation to repeal the carbon tax and the mining tax and several other failed policies of the previous government. Also high on the agenda is having the Parliament approve the raising of the debt ceiling. The current government is, in large measure stuck with the Budget programs of it’s predecessor. That Budget trajectory, if nothing changes, has the Budget deficit peaking at $370 Billion in 2016. Since the previous government unfailingly underestimated deficit the current government thinks it’s fair to say, again if nothing changes, that the real figure would be closer to $420 Billion. It also accepts the previous governments stance that a debt ceiling should contain a substantial buffer. Hence i ...

Sachin Tendulkar Bio Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer, and Member of Parliament. In ODIs, statistics confirm that Tendulkar is by far the most successful one-day batsman in history. In 2002, just 12 years into his career, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Bradman, and the second greatest one-day-international (ODI) batsman of all time, behind Viv Richards. Tendulkar was a part of the 2011 Cricket World Cup winning Indian team in the later part of his career, his first such win in six World Cup appearances for India. He was also the recipient of Player of the Tournament award of ICC World Cup, 2003 held in South Africa. He won the 2010 Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for cricketer of the year at the ICC awards. He has been recommended for the receipt of the Bharat Ratna award, in fact it has been speculated that the criteria for the award of the Bharat Ratna was changed to allow him receive the award.

AUSTRALIA HAS BEEN THREATENED BY Prime Minister OF PAPUA NEW GUINEA BY WITHDRAWING VISA ON ARRIVALS FOR CITIZENS OF AUSTRALIA IF IT DOES NOT ALLOW CITIZENS OF COUNTRY TO TRAVEL VISA FREE TO AUSTRALIA AND AUSTRALIA HIGH COMMISSION ASKING INCONVENIENT QUESTION WHILE APPLYING VISAS Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has threatened to withdraw the visa on arrival arrangements it has with Australia, unless visa rights are reciprocated. Speaking in parliament, Mr O'Neill said he is disappointed with how long it takes for Papua New Guineans to get an Australian visa. He says he is also upset with reports about inconvenient questions being asked by the Australian High Commission during the application process. "This visa on arrival business for all Australians will be withdrawn by the following year if we don't get a similar arrangement with them," Mr O'Neill said. "They all can go and apply for a visa in Australia so that they can come. "We don't want to inconvenience the travelling public, but on p ...
I've read quite a few news articles lately which praise Julia Gillard for the fact that, after she was replaced as Prime Minister by Kevin Rudd, she went quietly and she didn't seek to destabilise Kev's Prime Ministership as he did hers. They commend her for her grace under duress! I think Julia Gillard is quiet because she's sitting on a mountain of guilt. She knows she did nothing when it was clear that Kevin was a dysfunctional Prime Minister. She watched the polls dropping and dropping, knowing she was in pole position whenever the faceless men were ready to strike. She then attempted to convince us that she was simply the right person in the right place at the right time; perfectly innocent of plotting, in other words. In a speech to the Victorian Women's Trust last weekend, Gillard admitted to having made mistakes. The only problem is she trivialised her mistakes into one nice, neat basket. That she didn't take the Australian people into her confidence about why she replaced Rudd. That she didn't ex ...

Terry McCrann has an excellent metric for Tony Abbott’s success: "The more bleating we hear from Fairfax, the ABC, the Suzukis, Flannerys, Karolys and all the dreadful rest, the more we will know that Abbott is succeeding in the fine art of restoring rationality and even more basic sanity to government." What ever is wrong in Labor and the Left it is certain they never learn from mistakes. This is a serious question. Why did Labor MPs stick for years with a leader (Gillard) so obviously unelectable - incompetent, untrustworthy and despised by many voters? Julia Gillard was finished in 2011. It seems she's lied too brazenly and nothing in her erratic performance suggested she could ever recover . The truth is, her record in office is of unbroken failure after failure.

Gillard wants history back to basics Justine Ferrari and Lauren Wilson | December 03, 2007 INCOMING education minister Julia Gillard yesterday backed the traditional interpretation of the nation's history, saying she believed Australia was "settled", rather than "invaded". In a sign that she will adopt an orthodox approach to overseeing Labor's education policies, including the creation of a national schools curriculum, Ms Gillard supported students being exposed to different interpretations of Australian history and reaching their own conclusions. She also reiterated that Labor would focus very strongly on the basic skills of maths, reading and writing in the development of the curriculum. Asked yesterday if Australia was settled or invaded, Ms Gillard said it depended on one's perspective. "I would say Australia was settled," she told the Ten Network's Meet the Press program. "I can understand that many indigenous Australians would say that it was invaded and I think for senior students who study histor ...
Julia Gillard has wished Kevin Rudd well following the announcement of his resignation from parliament
Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has quit parliament, ending a bitter and divisive three-year chapter in the history of the Labor Party, declaring he bears no malice towards rivals on both sides of the parliamentary chamber. Mr Rudd was given a standing ovation by MPs as he announced his decision late on Tuesday, at the end of the first business day of the new parliament. He choked back tears and stopped to compose himself several times as he spoke of the heavy toll of politics on his family. 'My family have given their all for me and public life, and for our nation,' an emotional Mr Rudd said, adding it was now time to give something back to them. 'I will not be continuing as a member of parliament beyond this week.' 'It really is time for me to zip,' he said, concluding with one of his key catch phrases. Mr Rudd led Labor to a sweeping victory over conservative Prime Minister John Howard in December 2007, but later became embroiled in a damaging leadership feud with his former deputy Julia Gillard, whic ...
Rudd quits parliament AAP | November 13, 2013 FORMER Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has announced he's quitting parliament. He said there comes a time in every politician's life when their family says enough is enough. The former Prime Minister and foreign minister said he would not be continuing beyond this week. He said the slings and arrows of parliament "hit home to our families as well". "For our family, recent statements since the September election have been particularly hurtful," Mr Rudd said. "As parliamentarians you might say we become inured to all of this, although I doubt it." He paused several times to compose himself, though at one stage joked he could use some gin, prompting laughs. First elected as MP for Griffith in 1998, Rudd became Prime Minister in 2007, defeating John Howard. But his time as Prime Minister came to an abrupt end in June 2010 when he was dumped by his party in favour of Julia Gillard. Rudd reclaimed the job of Prime Minister in June this year when he defeated Ms Gill ...
Julia Gillard cutting down Kevin Rudd one of the greatest terrible tradgedies of Australian politics
Former 2 time Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd has retired from Australian federal politics. His battle with Julia Gillard, not only assasinated her career. In the end, it assasinated Kevins career too. Politics is so evil and its never a fair game!
Yesterday's team announcement went to plan, but not before a couple of early morning glitches. I had security search Invers jacket pocket. Lucky I did, he had Ed Cowan to open and no Davey Falzzon. I fronted him in the corridor. He loves Ed, comes from a solid family, well read and educated. I said " So is Julia Gillard, what's your point? " Boofter walked in on the conversation, and let Johnny have it. He said the team was as per my earlier release.Mitch Johnson and George Bailey and Milk, thanked me profusely.Both wanted to give me their precious caps as a thank you, but I reminded them I could punt them out of the team as easily as I picked them. James Sutherland and Pat Howard made a beeline for me after the press conference. I had my heart in my mouth. The last time these two hunted as a pack, they took the Mickey out of Coach Arthur. To my surprise they thanked me for my vision in announcing the team early. Merchandise Sales have gone through the roof, and they extended an invitation to me, asking . ...
Graham 'Parrot' MP is an otherwise inconsequential Labor Member in our federal Parliament. Today on the elevation of Bronwyn Bishop to the Speakers chair he chose to regurgitate the matter of a public rally calling for Julia Gillard"s removal which as a byproduct fielded signage, I.e. "Ditch the Witch". While the sign was certainly not 'nice' it did however accurately reflect the public mood at that time. Clearly and more importantly for Mr 'Parrot's edification it was later acted upon by Mr 'Parrots' own ALP colleagues who were belatedly trying to save their own worthless skins. Indeed "the Lord and the ALP move in mysterious ways".
First day of Parliament today and Labor's Leader of Opposition Business Tony Burke refers to Liberal Speaker Bronwyn Bishop as a witch. Where are all the Labor sycophants, Julia Gillard apologists, pathetic feminist crusaders and left wing dummies screaming "misogyny" now? It appears the left side of politics have no integrity and support a side instead of a principle, as usual.
I was impressed by your speech today, Ms.Julia Gillard.

Members of Baptist churches in Australia overwhelmingly support the current definition of marriage as between one man and one woman, and reject moves to extend the definition to include same sex relationships, National President of Australian Baptist Ministries, according to the Reverend Dr John Beasy: “Australian Baptists strongly urge Prime Minister Julia Gillard, and politicians across the political spectrum, to oppose moves to change the current legal definition of marriage by extending it to include same sex couples,” “There are compelling cultural and heritage reasons for rejecting this proposed radical social reform, and for Baptists there are also deeply held theological convictions about the nature and purpose of marriage which preclude widening the definition of marriage to include same sex couples,” according to the Reverend Rod Benson, public issues spokesperson for Australian Baptist Ministries. “A strong society needs a strong commitment to marriage and family. Marriage is best und ...

Is it just me? Every time I see a union boss on TV, all I can think of is Craig Thomson and his pleasure trips on the HSU credit card funded by the lowest paid workers in our economy. Then I'm reminded of Michael Williamson, the union boss and Labor party president, who admitted he took the money form the same union to fund his and his families lavish lifestyle. I then go full circle to the AWU scandal of the 90's involving Julia Gillard, her boyfriend Bruce Wilson and Ralph Blewitt which is currently being investigated by Victoria Police fraud squad. Then by the time they finish talking I wonder if they too have slush funds and water front properties. My perception may have been different if Julia Gillard had not stood by her man Craig Thomson and Shorten hadn't run interference in the AWU and HSU cases. As it stands, I don't believe the unions are for the workers but only for what is in it for themselves
I have no idea how true is this but there are rumors that there's going to be a television series - Stalking Julia Gillard! Mixed feelings about this... Hopefully the series will focus on showing that JG wasn't a liar and emphasises her excellent education, climate change and DisabilityCare policies and also her respectable handling of foreign matters and relationships :)
Hmm... it makes me sad, every breath she took, Julia Gillard could not miss criticism. From every corner and for every stupid half baked distraction the media could think of. Everyone bought that bs ! never do I see one status or comment complaining about the abhorrent, mismanaged government just elected into power, although he has many poor and perhaps dangerous decisions in merely months. Why ?! Because the media didn't tell you to hate him and you are ever so confused without them telling you what is right or wrong, it's not YOUR problem, right ?

Proposition: Australia should never again go to war at the behest of a foreign power i.e. the USA without a popular vote/referendum by we, the people. We cannot leave decisions to politicians when Australian lives are sacrificed for futile causes based on the personal agenda of a fool or delusions of a warmonger - Lyndon Johnson - Vietnam sidekick - Harold Holt. George W Bush and Iraq and Afghanistan - sidekick John W Howard and supporting cast of Kim Beazley, Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard. Enough is enough. Countless innocent lives lost, economies destroyed, corruption entrenched and thousands displaced. And what has been achieved? The politicians want to curry favour with a declining power, for self serving purposes and against the will of the people. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it, again and again and again. Your thoughts?

Oh dear. The poor Labor supporters don't know how to handle Labor's defeat. They alternate from blaming the Murdoch press to blaming the Coalition for winning. You know, now follow this, if the News Limited newspapers hadn't told it like it was under Labor and if the coalition hadn't of had an increased support, then Labor would still be at the helm steering us into the abyss. Of course they blame the coalition supporters for the Abbott government win hence the hostility on this page from our visitors. The expense revelations are a campaign run by Fairfax media. The Sydney Morning Herald begged its readers to uncover politician's travel claims. The readers being all lefties are only focused in uncovering the coalition expenses. All this takes time so I would assume it's a task that suits the unemployed Labor supporters or paid union hacks. Their aim is to create an historical record of abuse of entitlements from the coalition side in order to somewhat balance the extensive real rorting and abuse from Labo ...
Arguably the most culpable figure is Western Australian Liberal MP, Don Randall, who appears to have claimed parliamentary travel money to conduct a business deal in north Queensland. Randall has repaid the money, but escaped censure. During the Gillard years, such a scandal would have been big news. Ministers would have been hounded, media cycles dominated. It would have started in the far-right blogosphere, been taken up with enthusiasm by the Murdoch newspapers and then covered diligently by Fairfax and the ABC on the grounds that this was what everyone else was covering. The spurious claims about Julia Gillard’s actions as a solicitor at Slater and Gordon in the 1990s, which never had much substance to them and yet were given wide prominence, were perhaps the most obvious example of how this process works.

Liberals Release New Television Ads Liberal Party of Canada Leader Justin Trudeau has been consistent since the moment he began his leadership campaign. He has two strong priorities for Canada: a more open, honest government; and solutions for a struggling middle class. No matter the headlines of the day, these issues will remain the top priorities for Canadians, and for Mr. Trudeau. These issues deserve serious consideration and discussion. Mr. Trudeau was in Calgary yesterday and in Washington, D.C., last week talking about Keystone XL, the environment, our natural resources sector, meeting with President Obama's economic advisors and participating on a panel about progressive governance with Madeleine Albright and Julia Gillard. The Prime Minister may prefer to focus on divisive politics and personal attacks, but Mr. Trudeau will remain focused on the priorities of hardworking Canadians.

Julia Gillard (27th and current Prime Minister of Australia) was out jogging one morning along the path in Western Park when she tripped, fell over the bridge railing and landed in the Molongo River below. Before the Federal Police guys could get to her, 3 kids who were fishing pulled her out of the water. She was so grateful she offered the kids whatever they wanted. The first kid said, "I want to go to Disney World" & Julia said, "No problem, I'll take you there on in my Royal Australia Air Force plane". The second kid said, "I want a new pair of Nike Air Jordan shoes. Julia said, I'll get them for you and even have Michael Jordan sign them". The third kid said, "I want a motorized wheelchair with a built in TV and stereo headset". Julia was a little perplexed by this and said, "but you don't look like you're handicapped". The kid said "I will be after my dad finds out I saved you from drowning".

Oh well, I guess if people believe almost anything, politicians will exploit it! And no... Julia Gillard didn't lie to get elected [unlike someone else]!
Tony Abbott famously said he'd do anything except sell his *** to gain power. With the help of the Murdoch press, he pulled a classic bait and switch. By focusing on a possible negative of the carbon tax (that it may increase power costs) he buried the positive (that it will reduce emissions and contribute to saving our planet). Those who were taken in by this were easily led into the denialist cul-de-sac. As always the tactic was politically driven and had the effect of marginalising the issue of climate change itself. Now that Abbott has won the power he craved, he has to continue the charade and abolish the emissions trading scheme, as he claimed he would, to avoid wearing the "liar" label he so effectively hurled at Julia Gillard. Hence his ongoing refusal to admit any link between climate change and the increased frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as bushfires. So great is his lust for gaining and retaining power that he'd do anything except sell his *** including plunging the ...
How we pay UN bureaucrats to adapt to climate change in comfort Icon - Comments 60 Comments | Permalink Andrew Bolt Blog Icon Arrow Andrew Bolt OCTOBER 29 2013 (10:55am) How embarrassing. Our former Labor government was one of the few stupid enough to squander our money on the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund: Here’s a list of the countries who are both rich and improvident enough to squander their taxpayers’ money on the Green Climate Fund. It’s the usual suspects, my condolences to their citizens who are paying for this: Australia, $513,000 Denmark, $608,000 Finland, $648,000 France, $326,000 Japan, $500,000 Germany, $1,053,000 South Korea, $2,099,000 Netherlands, $286,000 Sweden, $752,000 UK, $770,000 TOTAL, $7,555,000 The Koreans put in two megabucks … but then, they also negotiated a deal where the Green Climate Fund is headquartered in Seoul.

An Open Letter to Bill Shorten by Dan Rowden Dear Mr. Shorten, May I call you Bill? I feel that after a lifetime of supporting Labor I’m entitled to that modest liberty. Bill, I’ve just read one of the most shocking things of my adult political life. I’m overtaken with competing emotions and reactions; I’m simultaneously bemused, disturbed, incredulous and thoroughly gob smacked. It seems that you and the Labor Party are considering backing away, even if only temporarily, from your commitment to your established carbon pricing agenda. It seems you’re considering allowing the Abbott Government to “scrap the tax” after all. Is this true or just media speculation? Excuse my candour, mate, but assuming it’s true: are you flipping insane? Has Labor completely lost its capacity to read the electorate and the politics of this issue? Its record of the last six years gives a certain pause for thought on that score. I put it to you in the strongest possible terms that this is the worst move ...

Printed out the submission form for Proposed Animal Welfare Standards for Dogs from the DPIPWE website. The thing is a joke! How do I respond to something which is so indescribably weak? Really have to think this one through carefully as I'm tempted to just rip it up and chuck it, but that helps no-one. These factories need to be closed down not prettied up and the proposed "guidelines" are not requirements, just guidelines. Apparently it's still OK to keep a dog in a crate for 8 hrs a day. Times like this I must remember Julia Gillard "Rather than wishing for a better hand of cards, I just need to make the best of the hand I have."
Whatever spin he wants to put on it, ex-senator Bob Carr is a Labor rat. He's as bad as one of the faceless men who's gone to work for James Packer. Maybe even worse. He was elected to the Senate in September to serve a 6-year term, which he previously said he would do. But he has resigned even before the Parliament has sat. Not for him the slog of backbench opposition politics. When the going gets tough, the shifty get going. Back to Macquarie, maybe, where he got a fat salary as adviser after his long stint as Premier of NSW? He said he supported Julia Gillard and then voted against her. Don't predict an early return to government benches with party members like him.
Australia’s Ambitious Free Trade Agenda Canberra wants to conclude deals with three East Asian giants, starting with Korea. It faces some significant hurdles The current hot topic in foreign and trade policy out of Canberra seems to be the conclusion of long-anticipated free trade agreements with the northeast Asian giants of China, Japan and Korea. Shortly after her appointment as foreign minister, Julie Bishop confirmed that “[e]xpediting the conclusion of free trade agreements with South Korea, Japan and China is a first order priority of the Abbott Government.” Such enthusiasm has manifested itself in the form of proactive, economic diplomacy, as Bishop completed a whirlwind tour of the region where she met with counterparts in Japan, Hong Kong and Korea. She will head to China in the new year. While the Coalition government's objective of concluding FTAs with Japan, Korea and China within a year is admirable, the ability for the government to conclude negotiations with the three countries – w ...
Essence of Julia Gillard's speech at the CAP conference - It's an easy age for slogans, a difficult age for complex discussions and we are the change agents, we need complexity - Our most successful conversations were about future (investment in education) & managing risk (disability insurance) - If they had an intercept on my calls, all they'd have heard would have been praise for Credits to John Mcternan
We would like to thank the Greens who supported the Labour Party to power who in turn supported the Greens on the NO back burning issue. A life lost, homes burnt to the ground, lives ruined, pets lost, dreams shattered, memories destroyed and for what ? Where are you now Julia Gillard where are you NOW ?

He's become a barracker for the conservatives. Treated Julia Gillard badly. An old misogynist.
Laws passed early yesterday impose mandatory 15-year jail terms for certain offences if they are committed as part of a criminal organisation. ( Not just motorcycle gangs) Apparently a book club could be found guilty. How about a religious group where a member was previously part of a criminal organisation? What about corrupt Politicians? Are they not a criminal organisation? Julia Gillard, Peter Slipper corruption brought to the public attention but nothing happens to them and all the latest Pollies ripping off the tax office, also massive pay rises when other individuals struggle for 2-3% pay rises. What is lobbying? Isn't it just another form of bribery. Sounds like a criminal organisation to me.So all Politicians are guilty by association with other corrupt politician under recent laws passed and being in a group of 3 or more people. One term in politics followed by 15 years in prison. That's sounds fair.
Did Adam Bandt say Julia Gillard's father die of shame or something
