For Like minded people who like to see-
While we make the best of any momentum that maybe generated by Gillards cowardly (but perhaps politically necessary) surrender to The Greens, let's not lose sight of the bigger picture. A victory on carbon dioxide emissions tax may in fact leave us worse off.
Without a "carbon" tax we have already seen massive increases in energy prices. These have been largely due to the introduction of various mandated sustainable energy targets and massive, corruption laden and economically…Continue

The Gillard Govt, while it is finding itself under attack yet again, has decided to reintroduce the word Multiculturalism to Australian politics.
It seems to me that Multiculturalism is yet another campaign to diminish the moral status of Australia by defining the Aussie experience through a myriad of repressions and their victims. It is just a term using name calling (sexist!, Racist!, Homophobe! Etc) to inhibit debate, a multicultural renewal of terms, do…Continue

So once again I supposed the media knockers will be complaining about the coverage today of the Christchurch earthquake.
Good story, no it isn't, good coverage yes. Sensationalised, how do you sensationalise LIVE pictures of people trapped in and on buildings, people being rescued, people trying to steream out of the city, collapsed buildings, liquafaction flowing in the streets, crushed cars, crushed people and after shocks.
Once again top coverage by the media, top…Continue

G'day Agmate, I'm BACK!!!
I guess you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the range of events that cause absolute hardship and ruin to an Australian Farmer. Drought, Flood, Cyclone, Disease, Insect Plagues, of course, but now there is a new threat, a more insidious and viral destructiveness, that I have never seen before...... THE AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER!
Yes folks this Marxist loving red headed woman that we call Jooolia has taken it on herself to…Continue
Meteorological offices around the world have come in for criticism over faulty weather prognostications of late. Most egregiously in the case of the British Met Office which, not once but three times in a row, has failed to provide warnings of harsh winter conditions. (call [for] ... inquiry into…

While I don't always agree with the wholesale reposting of postings from other sites, I think this may be of particular interest here and, given its source, everyone may not get the opportunity to see it. Which of our mainstream papers would publish a piece like this?
This is an opinion piece from The Wall Street Journal which came to my attention via…Continue
Anyone that heard Mark Riley's entrapment of Tony Abbott on Channel 7 will have noticed the tape was edited and this means the context in which Mr Abbott's comment was made was contrived to make him appear irreverent in regard to a soldiers death. This story started showing Tony Abbott firing a rifle and then a machine gun before the carefully edited audio was played of Mr Abbott saying sh** happens. the context of the tape is a matter of derision now, and I am calling on all the read this…Continue
As a driver for many years I can think of so many possible distractions:
The wealth of science points to a natural change in our climate, and the entire history of the world and of all humanity supports this hypothesis
Claude Allegre, who was among the first scientists to warn people of the dangers of global warming 20 years ago, now believes that "most of the warming comes of natural phenomena”.
When it comes to CO2, there…Continue
I have attempted to add comments to Pater Crawfords item "Don't Let The Truth Get in The Way Of A Good Story", however the full extent of my comments with regards to his item would not translate efficiently into the comments section of the blog, so I here offer a different perspetive of the reccent Disaster Media coverage as a stand alone Blog ....
Let me preface my comments on the item “Don’t Let The Truth Get In The Way Of A Good Story”, by declaring that…Continue
