"Unclouded Priorities" that the young school girl takes, whilst the other two argue politics
Chris Bowen struggles to name tax-free threshold during Alan Jones interview
ALP Shadow Treasurer, Chris Bowen is a boofhead!!! Stuffed up in every portfolio he has ever had and never held down a real job in the real world. He simply has no understanding of the basic fundamentals of our tax system, and we are expected to trust him to run our economy?
If ALP Leader, Bill Shorten has any grey matter between his ears (tic), then he'll flick this fool from the Treasurers portfolio ASAP !!

Well if you liked 1960/70's TV Sci-Fi or that huge cinematic success "Honey I Shrunk the Kids!", then you'll probably get a kick out of this cartoon.
Seriously speaking now, it is just bad for our democracy that the current Federal Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten actually thinks he is doing his job and a service to this country by sitting back & letting the Leftist Media throw all the slings and arrows at the Coalition Government and offering nothing more than "Shop Steward" style rhetoric whilst parroting media commentators.
If he is that void of any new ideas then surely it's the ALP that will be calling the next spill motion?...................
Come to think of it, they won't do it even if some of them are smart enough to see what most of us already now about the unelectable status of this alternative Prime Minister. They won't do it simply because of the damage the ALP Brand is still getting over the last bevy of leadership debacles.

Kicking off February with a reminder of just how powerful the Leftist Media is in this country. No matter what a Conservative leader does, he or she will always be painted as "doing the wrong thing" and the voice of this Media is loud enough to make a difference.
The problem that needs to be tapped into is that so many voters are allowing themselves to be just stupidly subjected to the will of the leftist media, cycle after cycle & so on.
These usual suspects and useful idiots continue to create a storm in a tea cup over every policy/decision of every conservative government in the country and until the silent majority (the conservative Australians) start to protest this bias by not watching or buying what this media is are selling, then they will always manipulate the minds of those who have well and truly been brain washed by the decades of the "long march through the institutions" by the Marxist social engineers.
Media in a small population such as ours is potent and powerful and their influence cannot be understated or ignored. This is honestly the only reason that I can logically determine as the root cause of such strange events as this weekend Queensland election and the continued downslide of the PM's popularity. Good Governments and Leaders shouldn't go down this way for no good reason.

The latest news from the East Coast of the USA is that the snow storm so far isn't as bad as predicted but nonetheless it is a bad one and the city is barely moving. More blizzard weather is still forecast.
I guess Al Gore won't be attending the Big Apple until well after the melt and the floods subside. Of course he will say that this is Climate Change caused by Global Warming. I wonder how the homeless in Central Park and the Bronx will feel about that revelation ?

QLD locals, especially in and around the Federal Electorates of Dawson and Capricornia, desperately want Abbot Point to go ahead for the jobs but Labor has announced that they will ‘put a wrecking ball’ through the proposal to pander to the Greens voters in inner city Brisbane.
Makes you wonder why the QLD ALP leader, Anastacia Palaszczuk would have any hope with that type of backward thinking?

I have worked shift work for most of my life. Some of those jobs I chose to do and others I just had to do. Of all of them I never was attracted to an occupation because it offered penalty rates for working weekends and nights.
I know of no Police Officers, Security Guards, Nurse, Ambo's or Fire Fighter's to name a few, who thought it was a great job to get into because of the penalty rates.
I really do not understand why we still see these periods in the week as being such a sacrificial time to do your job. This is a 24 hour, 7 day a week economy and has been for decades. The workforce is becoming more casualized everyday and salaries are the preferred option for most professionals regardless of their work hours.
As more and more jobs go overseas because of the not so level playing field that Globalisation has given us, the only true obstacle left to keep Australians working and business being competitive are PENALTY RATES.
Should they be removed all together? Perhaps not completely as the shock to many family budgets will be dramatic, therefore the solution is compromise and bargaining that will be of mutual benefit to employer and employees. Sure a few people will lose some money but the trade off is job security and less dependence on the Welfare State.
Of course this industrial relations debate suits the ALP Leader, Bill Shorten nicely, as he will no doubt encourage demarcation disputes and industrial action and then blame the sideshow of misery that these things bring on the PM who is already suffering in the popularity stakes.
In my opinion this will be not only be the greatest test of Tony Abbott's resolve and commitment to see and act past his political career and to cause the overdue death of the Aussie entitlement mentality but it will also shine a light on Shorten's leadership credibility as someone who is not a Union puppet but an ALP Prime Minister in the waiting.
Let's see if the insanity continues!

I was just thinking about this the other day and wondering just why are we spending days and thousands of hours of non stop media coverage/debate, social media campaigns of outrage, along with massive street protests, in reaction to the murder of just over a dozen innocent French people by Jihadists and yet at the same time, just over 2000 innocent Nigerians are murdered by more Islamists nutters AND it barely gets a mention?
Is it that we have become so desensitised to the many murders in third word countries and Communist dictatorships, that when it happens in the West we are simply in shock thus this is how we deal with our outrage in a such a detailed and loud way?
Of course I have no issue with the outrage, analysis, protests and the global showing of solidarity against these 9th Century throwbacks but I would think that more needs to be said and done about thousands of men, women & children being slaughtered in Nigeria and elsewhere on an almost daily basis.
I might also repeat my earlier cartoon comment, that the hypocrisy of the Left amongst us truly has no bounds. Wearing their "Je Suis Charlie" tee shirts is nothing more than a populist hipster look when worn by the very same leftards that protested loudly to stop the proposed Coalition changes to the ridiculous/dangerous 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act.
