The article's recommendation that the ALP regain its cajones by publicly predicting 2012-like disasters besetting Australia if our humble island doesn't reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 5% is, of course, plainly ridiculous.


The notion that carbon emissions of any sort, man-made or natural, has anything to do with the warming or cooling of the earth is absurd

It’s truly pathetic how many people have been duped into believing there is a correlation.

Fight pollution- yes, but global warming and thus climate change is beyond our control, unless one has a broader leftist agenda - then it’s a great big handy stick to beat dissenters with who won’t give up their freedoms in the name of bigger and broader government in “defence” of Mother Earth. The militant green agenda is imported direct from the Pluto High Command. :alien:

That man can impact climate is like something out of a mad James Bond movie plot or better yet, Flint or Matt Helm.

Read a great Louise Asher joke in the paper today:

Quote :
Ted Baillieu: Louise Asher told me today she was humiliated by my berating of her for missing that crucial vote. I never did such a thing - she must have dreamt it.

made me chuckle. laugh

His "image" is certainly enlarging at that point, CJB. Just look at the ruddy complexion, the narrowed eyes and the slanting eyebrows. Classic symptoms.

If that's who I think it is, former PM John Howard, then we could have former PM greeting future PM.

Good luck CJB, the global Pluto-resistance is counting on you!

And sorry CJB, but after winning Young Australian of the Year in 2014, I plan on spending 20 years at Maquarie Bank where I rise to the position of Director, whereafter I will be slotted before you for pre-selection despite my general inactivity since student politics and slide into a leadership position before becoming PM following a short stint in Opposition after the Public decide to give Labor one last shot at redemption from their annihilation at the hands of Tony Abbott.

So yeah, sorry.

I'd be content with being Minister for Health. Those much maligned donations from Big Tobacco are too good to pass up. I'd be the anti-Roxon and subsidise Cubans (both cigars and hookers) for working families.

He looks like he's about to implode from the temples. laugh

One thing I'll say for Howard (and even more for Costello) is that since they've gone, politics has lost two very interesting people, showmen if you will. And considering the current dearth of interesting politicians who couldnt sell a thing, on both sides of the spectrum.... :sleep:

Can these people just fuck off.

During a long debate, Deputy Mayor Marcelle Hoff argued that the term "invasion or illegal colonisation" should be used in the council's official documents and statements.

She read out dictionary definitions of invasion as "to take possession, to penetrate, to intrude upon, to overrun".


Well, you're free to desist your intrusion upon Aboriginal land and pack your sorry arse back to Europe.

First Marrickville, now the City of Sydney... someone needs to pull these LGAs and their far-left activism into line. Ratepayers don't shovel money into these drongos' coffers so they can boycott bagels or delegitimise the presence of 20 million non-aboriginal Australians in their own land.

I was wondering if I was going to be beaten to this - absolute utter lunacy from these inner-city types. I'm surprsied the animal activists dont say the Aboriginals invaded the natural home of the kangaroo, etc.

Not likely as the activist crowd worship indigines. They have equal status with animals and mother earth.
Speaking of, Peta, a few weeks ago declared that we should all become vegans, to reduce CO-2 emissions from beef cattle and other flatulent livestock.
You see if we only had the sense to practise good ole fashioned pagan gaia worship, we'd all be responsible vegans and thus dispense with the need for cattle and other gas-passing farm animals. 🐷
Global warming would dissapear. That is, as long as someone managed to get the sun on board with the program as well.

International socialism is on a roll with not only their "man-made" global warming hysteria, but also with taking up the cause of every indigenous people in every western democracy, or wherever evil western corporations do business, whether the idigenes need or want the help.
Indigenous people and mother earth are the new battlefronts. The whole workers revolution thing was a failure and so very 20th century, so its on to the next phase.
Vive le revolution! 👽

The history of the human race is the history of migration, invasion, conquest, colonialism, imperialism and the armed competition for resources. Only whitey, however, is vilified for this behavior. Rarely will one find a clearer example of Leftist hypocrisy and racism.

I was flipping through "reformed liberal" Oscar nominated Director, David Mamet's new book today, The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture
His chapter on "The Noble Savage" deals with the left's bizarre fixation with indigenous peoples.

It's a follow-up to his acclaimed 2008 "coming out" op-ed piece he wrote for the Village Voice, "Why I am no longer a brain-dead liberal"
Now he's put out a whole book challenging political correctness, climatism and other good stuff. There is hope for Plutowood after all.
Hope he sent autographed copies to Sean Penn, Matt Damon et al.



"For the past thirty years, David Mamet has been a controversial and defining force in theater and film, championing the most cherished liberal values along the way....... But in recent years Mamet has had a change of heart. He realized that the so- called mainstream media outlets he relied on were irredeemably biased, peddling a hypocritical and deeply flawed worldview."

I havent read the details yet, but I'm glad they're finally out. Indeed, if Gillard was competent, this would have been the first day we would have heard about the tax at all, as a complete package. Rather than what she did, which was to introduce the idea with no thought behind it, leaving uninformed* guys like Abbott, Blot and McCrann to convince everyone this tax will ruin our country.

*note - I dont use "uninformed" because they're right wing, I'm using it because they were lambasting the tax without any idea of what it entailed, because it obviously hasnt entailed anything until today. And theyve done it very well too, may I add.

Though the first thing I see on the Herald Sun website is Abbott talking it down. How surprising. ;)

If one thinks the sub prime mortgage market was a disaster for the global economy, you ain't seen nothing yet, if this hot air market ever takes off.
You really can fool some of the people all of the time and there is lots of sucker money to be made with the cap and trade racket.

Maybe not. We may all start eating bear meat, rather than go vegan, if Pluto/Peta's, don't-eat-beef, cow-farts-cause-global-warming campaign takes off.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/malcolm-turnbull-reignites-leadership-tensions-within-federal-opposition/story-fn59niix-1226093960753

Malcontent Turnbull is at it again.

I like how everytime MT opens his gob the media labels it "leadership tensions" as if he has any significant nternal party support. Abbott is preferred PM in the polls and the Coalition is well ahead of Labor. The Australian people, by and large, have no appetite for carbon dioxide schemes - whether taxes or trading schemes. If Turnbull had his way, the Coalition would've been decimated in 2010, Rudd would still be PM and we'd be living under his useless Ego Trebling Scheme.

It's a damn shame really. Turnbull is an effective politician, if only he could be a team player and stick to his portfolio (which isn't Shadow Minister for Bitching About My Failed Leadership). MT ain't winning himself any friends.

“It is time for all of us to start to get comfortable with two words: Carbon tax” (Glen Murray, Toronto Star, May 27 2007)
Glen Murray:Ontario provincial government Liberal cabinet minister.

===No fear though. We've managed to keep carbon taxes at bay and we will be voting Murray and his pals out in October. Libs trail by 11 points in the polls as of today and are sinking. Should be a landslide Conservative victory.

I tell you, this Carbon tax crap is a death knell. Its a suckers game. The poor voters have bills to pay and have no stomach for such stupidity. A carbon tax is essentially a tax on everything. It brings nothing but misery.

Ah, Greg Zombet. The most useless cadaver to ever walks the halls of Parliament. A taletnless union hack like practically evey other Labor MP. I look forward to his beloved Department of Climate Warmy Changey being dismantled by the next Coalition government.

I think the whole man-made CO2, causes global warming garbage is running out of steam. Al Gore had a meltdown recently complaining about how he wasn't being taken seriously.
Its always been a leftist tactic disguised as science to concentrate more power into the hands of government.
Man made emissions do cause pollution. Pollution is not good so we should take steps to reduce it. And please do recycle. This is also good.
But the notion that man-made emissions causes climate change is like something out of a James Bond movie. Actually more like "In Like Flint".
James Bond Bond movies are more grounded in reality.
Al Gore is a Bond/Flint villain with plenty of brainwashed minions.
