I paraphrase these gents; Clearly the Government has fallen into the trap set by the economic wreckers of the ALP/Greens, that their Budget is simply a matter of Fairness versus Unfairness instead of focusing their message on the fact that the Federal Budget is designed to return the country to surplus, reduce and eventually end the weekly billion dollar interest bill, is designed to reduce the wasted taxpayer funds on populist policy on the run created by the previous Government (without proper funding) and to wean the entitlement dependent capable workers of the massive Welfare Tit!
That the message needs to be clear, reduce taxation and subsidise that lost revenue by spending less on middle class & corporate welfare and mismanaged welfare and socialised programs that currently exist. That the massive debt will only grow as the population does and if not constrained and controlled now, will cost the next generation dearly with a reduction in necessary welfare such as the aged pension and Medicare for those who truly need it.
This cartoon speaks of such an enlightened moment that I for one hope has gotten through to the Treasurer, Finance Minister and the PM whilst on their Winter break. They have the right tools and talent to turn this mess around but no one will employ them to do the job if they don't correctly target and effectively advertise their service and skills plus the need to fix the roof whilst the sun shines.
They must ignore the knockers in opposition and the useful idiots of the left wing media and just explain to the people of Australia that we ALL must tighten our belts, get of our arses, count our blessings and think about the long term future of the country instead of the short term personal gains. This is a duty of all fair dinkum Australians rather than a punishment for the sin of allowing another left wing and socialist aligned political party such as the ALP and Greens to gain power seven years ago.

Clive Palmer has suffered another defeat in his legal brawl with Chinese giant Citic Pacific after the Federal Court today threw out his application to become the security operator at a key iron ore port in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
The ruling in Perth is a blow to Mr Palmer’s long-running efforts to wrest control of the port from Citic.
How's that for a bit of INSTANT KARMA!

Well, Mr Palmer is just the gift that continues to give. His hypocrisy has no bounds. It was only in 2009 that he was calling the Australian Government racists for not allowing the Chinese to buy a mining site because it was too close to Pine Gap.
Now he calls these same Chinese "Mongrels & Bastards" because they had the nerve to challenge him in court. Could you imagine for just a second if those comments about the Chinese Government (and that is who he was speaking about) were made by Nationals Leader and Deputy PM, Warren Truss, who was the only Conservative on the last night's Q&A panel.
It would be all that the left wing commercial media, the ABC/SBS, the ALP and of course the Greens and most likely Palmer himself, would be rant about for weeks. I am sure that the freedom of speech police would be firing up their 18C weapon and going straight for Warren Truss.
I know it's early but I have been trolling the media sites and a few notable websites, only to find no one calling for this stupid and insidious law to be used against Palmer's comments.
On one hand I am glad that isn't happening, Palmer has the right to say what he wants and it will be the public that will mark him down or up on his choice of words AND YET the hypocrisy of the left that wanted to "protect" people from nasty words, appears to be doing nothing about Clive's anti Chinese brain snap? Seems to me that 18C is only to be used when a Conservative politician or commentator wants to use their freedom of speech!

Funny thing, ain't it, the way so-called progressives have turned out in force to back the Muslim fundamentalists of Hamas.
Institutionalised misogyny, the supremacy of religion, indifference to human life -- they are the bells that usually set the smart set slavering about injustice. But not when the enemy is Israel.

With a hell of a week behind us I guess there is not much more to say than bravo PM and shame on you Bill Shorten. Whilst the PM showed true leadership this week, our ALP Opposition Leader, scraps the bottom of the barrel with his address to the party faithful this weekend. With nothing to add, no ideas or plans to improve the fiscal mess that he and his gang of socialist criminals left behind, he turns to that old default position that the Tory Hating Laborites always divert too, CLASS WARFARE!.
I am sure you caught his hollow hatred rant against Abbott & Hockey on one of the many media outlets today and no doubt you will be able to read all about it in a Fairfax publication this morning, only it will be headlined as " THE RISE OF BILL SHORTEN".
This bloke has learnt NOTHING from the last 6 years of chaos and instead of finding ways to assist the government to balance the books again and pay for all the promises made by both sides, he is the new "MR NO" and is clearly living in denial of the massive defeat that his party suffered last September.
Meanwhile as a disturbing side show, the Palmer United Circus just keeps on a rollin' along. Clive is hell-bent on getting back at Qld Premier, Campbell Newman, for not giving him the green light for some of his mining ventures via his pushing for a Senate inquiry into the Newman Govt.
Not realising from the start that corruption is not Premier Newman's bag, thus any financial support that Clive gave to the QLD or National LNP was never an instant stamp of approval for Palmer's plans.
Should I even mention the bogan "Senator" from Tasmania. Jacqui Lambie really has taken out the word "Class" in the phrase "Political Class". I doubt she will ever learn and hopefully the fools that voted for her will wake up to themselves next time around.

It worked!, the entire world's media are now focussed again on the Ukraine. I truly believe that there is no way that the operators of the sophisticated targeting and guidance systems of the Surface To Air Missile Launcher that brought down flight MH17 this morning over Ukrainian territory, did not know that it was targeting a civilian aircraft.
This brings me to the question, "Why shoot down a civilian Airliner?". My only conclusion is that this act of terror will bring massive media attention to the continuing fight of Ukraine and Pro-Russian and Russian backed Separatists.
What's happening in the middle east as well as all of the other world news has knocked the disgusting annexing of Ukrainian territory by Vladimir Putin to the back of the newspaper if at all -- and we all know how much terrorists thrive on publicity to even be relevant in their own minds.
Seems almost that the flight targeted was a matter of personal convenience for President Putin? With 100 of it's passengers en-route to Melbourne to attend an International HIV (AIDS) Conference, many of them distinguished in their fields in the fight to destroy HIV, just maybe Putin sees them as the friends of his enemies. After all, we all know what Putin thinks about Homosexuality. I'd say he would like the virus to carry on doing it's good work, in his opinion of course!. Maybe a stretch to far but nothing would surprise me these days.
It will interesting to see if the truth ever does emerge and just how the world will prosecute the case for justice.
Comment from JR: Best information seems to be that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian Ukrainian rebels -- but the most interesting question for me is what the plane was doing in a declared no-fly zone

Congrats to PM Abbott and the entire coalition team, special mention to the Nationals Minister for Agriculture, the Hon Senator Barnaby Joyce, who was taking on the madness of a proposed Carbon Tax and Cap 'n' Trade Scheme (ETS) well before any of his Coalition mates. Still, as a team the evil Carbon Tax has been defeated and that team is TEAM AUSTRALIA!!!
Seems that just sometimes democracy can work in the favour of the sensible majority and deliver good outcomes. One thing is for sure in my mind and that is that we will not be leading the world in Carbon Tax madness anymore, rather we will take the lead in economic common sense, courage & honour and show the other Western countries who have been hoaxed and guilty into submission, that it's okay to say that you made a mistake and reverse the wrong before anymore damage is done.
The world just got a little brighter for logic and reason and the world for the AGW/Climate Change Alarmists just got much more darker and colder.
