Happy Same OLD NEW Year
Now far be it for me to be lazy, because I am not! I really love my craft, I love to draw and I was thinking for a while today what I would draw (say) to mark the end of this year and to see the new one in.
I am a complete optimist and I will always hope and believe that the next day will be a better one than the last. I, like most people, believe that one learns from their mistakes and that this simple wisdom will go a long way to improving the future for us all.
I thought to myself, "what did I say on last years NYE toon?". I checked and as I read the cartoon I realised that this is virtually the same cartoon that I was going to draw this year. All of the issues that plagued our society back in 2009 are still there!.
Therefore I think that the most relevant lesson to be learnt this year is we understand that we do have short memories and if we do not remember the mistakes of the past then we can be assured that those mistakes will still be repeated year after year after year.
Thank God we here is New South Wales will not be repeating the mistake that we made back in March 2007 and as a result we will see a return to a conservative and fiscally sensible governance in this state (I hope so anyway, tic).
Also, that if we are given the chance later in the new year, we may be able to remove the dangerous ALP/Greens Federal coalition, anything that should have happened a few months ago.
So dear reader, Happy 2011 to us all, I hope the year ahead will bring prosperity, happiness, good health and wealth (in whatever form that wealth comes to you) and that we will never forget that the mistakes of the past and never be forced to repeat them due to our LAZINESS!!!

No religion please, we're Communist
For anyone who is interested in just what our new government (or is it still the old one?) believes in, one only has to look at the teachings of Marx and Engels. Communism 101 does not support the belief in any religious dogma, God, Allah or whatever you address your spiritual superior by. Rather the STATE is now your main object of worship and obedience.
I thought that all the political pundits were correct when they say that Julia Gillard is a very smart person and never gaffed, ever? Well, I am not so sure about that anymore. The smart thing to have done when the Radio Kremlin (ABC) presenter asked her about her religious beliefs was simply to say "that such issues are of a private nature and I will be keeping to myself my beliefs, agnostic, atheist or otherwise!" And you know, who would have questioned or berated her for saying that? Because that is the right thing to say and Australians in general do like to keep to themselves when it comes to such private matters.
I for one really do not care what beliefs our PM's have outside of their belief in this country and its prosperous future. As long as the present Australian culture, language and borders are protected as well as our constitution and basic freedoms and democracy, then who am I to tell the PM what I think she should do on a Sunday morning?
I am not ashamed to admit that I have a strong faith in the Christian Lord God but I am not the PM. The Prime Minister should have known that this is a question that they shouldn't answer as it creates political fodder and a cause for division in her support base.
So really when we get down to brass tacks, is this a smarter person to be running our country than the previous K Rudd? or is it simply a case of out with the Maoist and in with the Marxist?Either way I still see RED!!!

Executing Necessary Reforms
Well, what a difference a day makes in our nation's capital. To say that this ASSASSINATION of a Prime Minister (even a bad one like Rudd) was bloodless would be like saying that Joseph Stalin never really meant any harm to his Generals who disagreed with his tactics or that Adolf Hitlers 1934 "Night of the Long Knives" was nothing more than a butchers convention.
Anyone who truly believes in the Australian Labor Party as being a party for the people and the workers, can now see just what a bunch of heartless, divided, ruthless, selfish and undeniably disloyal mob it has become.
Many of the political commentariat (red flag wavers most of them) are gloating that this change of leader will secure a victory for the ALP -- as Rudd was just unelectable and a liability. I do agree with the latter comment, Kevin 07 had certainly lost his way and as he was no longer consulting with the factions -- if he ever did? The public were FINALLY seeing the man for what he really is and not what the leftist media had wanted you to believe. He simply should never have been the Australian Prime Minister; he is and will always be just a bureaucrat with an esteem issue.
However I do not agree that Tony Abbott's Conservative Coalition will have a much harder time to win government at the next election just because Rudd is gone and Gillard is now in the big chair. A lot does depend upon timing and, no doubt, Gillard will capitalise on the media "honeymoon period" as they wax lyrical about the obvious fact that she is the first female PM (unelected PM that is) and will harp on about her proud parents and the relatives in Wales, the hair dresser defacto boyfriend etc, pap, etc, pap.
But what they will not want you to think about is that this far left activist of days gone by is now and was a major contributor to all the failed policies that Kevin Rudd is now being put to the sword for and that she will have one hell of a job to please the factions, especially the right of the ALP as well as getting her agenda as PM across the line.
Yes, Julia Gillard probably doesn't want a lot of what Kevvy wanted but will she be able to get her way if she continues to be beholden to the faceless mongrels who power-brokered her way to the top job?
Rudd was certainly a dictator in his party and that is why he is gone but the question is how long will Julia put up with being told that she will toe the factional lines and that she had better not get to pragmatic or even bossy as she will too be looking for a new job.
Richo was correct when he penned his now infamous ALP screed "Whatever it takes" because this incumbent government will do whatever it takes to remain in power and, after all, isn't power what this government is all about!?!
As for Rudd, well "can I just say this": If you live by the sword then you will die by the sword [Matthew 26:52]. Cliche, yes, but in this case most apt.
Should be a very interesting few months for voters. And for cartoonists, this is a dream come true.

CONVICTION TRUMPS RHETORIC EVERY TIME
Many commentators and people in general are asking the question "when is this resources super tax issue going to end?"....and rightfully so.
Well, I am sure that this is a question that Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd and Treasurer, Wayne Swan never really thought that they would be dealing with now, but are asking themselves it on an hourly basis. This new super profits tax, that will destroy any chances that the Howard battlers had of getting ahead, is in my opinion, the nail in the coffin for Rudd's reign in the Lodge.
The arrogance displayed by this pair of "Public Servants" in not consulting privately with the mining industry about this new tax, should not surprise anyone but what should really should start to ring warning bells is the fact that these two actually thought that this would be a popular view with the voters, not affect jobs and that the mining industry would be happy to roll along with the plan. Reckless behaviour and clearly they do not understand the Australian people.
We are also expected to swallow more of Wayne Swan's rubbish when he says, that this process of negotiation with the miners has been according to a series of plans and steps. Too late for me to swallow that one Wayne! -- even though that would have been the correct way to have gone about things. One can not state retrospectively the plan as you wished it would have been as some kind of fact.
The lack of care shown in this approach simply reeks of arrogant foolishness. How can we leave the sovereignty and economy of this great country of ours in the hands of these men and women and this political party for another term?
What is refreshing is that the mining giants didn't run scared of Rudd and Swan and rather stood shoulder to shoulder against the rape of Australia's last and only true performing industry.
Maybe we should think about electing a few of the mining magnates, at least we will have leaders with a backbone.

Who has never told a lie in their life? I would say that the answer to that question is, undoubtably, NOBODY. Even if a man or a woman states truthfully that they have never exaggerated the details or distorted the facts or even told a white lie as an adult, it would be impossible to think that anyone could say that as a child there wasn't an innocent fib or two told by them to avoid a smack on the bottom or a dressing down by Dad or Mum.
Lately there has been a lot said by the Rudd government about Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott's, admission that sometimes public figures will deliver information that may not be accurate in the heat of a debate or question time, instead of appearing as if they do not have a hold of all the information that they are unrealistically expected to know at the drop of a hat.
In fact, it is one of the failings of our political reporters is to believe that any politician is across every detail of any subject asked of them at a doorstop interview. This is why politicians need to take advice from those employed to supply them with the information needed to make the judgements that they need to govern wisely. This has always been the case in any functioning system.
It is however not as easy to forgive a politician who hasn't just forgotten a portfolio detail than when that politician has consciously told a untruth to obtain personal gain. In the case of our current Prime Minister, here we have a man who is beyond telling the odd unconfirmed fact so as to not look stupid but rather spouts deliberate porky pies as a matter of course.
This folks is known as "Pathological Deception". I believe that Kevin Rudd is not only lying to us all but he is also deluding and lying to himself on a daily basis. I believe that the ultimate power that he has managed to obtain through deception has driven him to subconsciously believe that he is in no way doing wrong.
I would like to draw your attention to another well researched article on this very subject by the renowned journalist and broadcaster, Andrew Bolt. Here he has listed the publicly known lies that have taken Kevin Rudd from the trappings of a Queensland public office to the Lodge in Canberra and I am sure in his mind, eventually to a seat at the New World Order United Nations.

NASTY GROWTH REMOVED
Well, finally something to celebrate this week. Malcolm Fraser has left the Australian Liberal Party and all I can say is....."when was he a true member anyway ?".
Clearly this terrible politician and failed former Australian Prime Minister was so far to the left that he could have founded the current Greens Party or at least joined the Australian Labor Party to be amongst other leftist softies, with no compromise to his ideology. Malcolm Fraser held no regard for Menzies' conservative values and vision for the Liberal Party. In fact, I am sure that the actual reason Malcolm Fraser joined the Liberal Party was because he thought it started with a small L.
During his term, 1975 to 1983, this man did NOTHING of value for the country, in fact, it is widely recognised that he probably did more damage and wasted more opportunity for economic growth than his predecessor Gough Whitlam. What this snivelling bleeding heart did, was to open our borders to some of the worst type of refugees and embrace such people as the despot and murderer, Robert Mugabe and Pol Pot and even Mao Tse-Tung, a communist Chinese leader who is credited for being directly responsible for the deaths of 20 million people...... but I am sure Malcolm would just call me a racist and tell me that I should always try to see the good in people.
I actually know of diehard Conservative voters who voted in Fraser's successor, Robert Hawke, rather than vote for this leftist stooge again. So, to the crying, pants losing (and we never found out just what that was about, did we?) Goodbye and good riddance and thanks for nothing!

THE ENEMY WITHIN
To think that the answer to reducing the MASSIVE debt that the Rudd Government has delivered to the Australian taxpayer, is to greedily tax the only Australian owned industry that is actually making money for mum and dad investors and just about anyone how has a superannuation scheme, is as mental an idea as raising the price of cigarettes to stop smokers smoking and compensating cigarette manufacturers for defacing their product branding.
This socialist government is definitely clutching at straws now if they think that the Australian public will believe that it is the mining magnates that need to be punished and forced to pay this tax, whilst billions of dollars have and continue to be wasted in nowhere failed schemes like national home insulation, laptops for every student and the building the education revolution scam.
Is it any wonder that Rudd is getting his true reward of disapproval and distrust in the polls, when you consider that self-funded retirees and anyone with blue chip investments will suffer from this money grab on the mining industry. Eventually this will all filter down to every consumer and once again the price of living will rise that much higher, if it wasn't high enough already.
Deputy Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, is being groomed by the media sycophants as the next to take the top job and sure she's a woman and is very intelligent etc, etc but that is window dressing until we have a good look at her radical and hard left life history and her list of communist/Marxist heroes of the Labor movement. This woman is the Red in "the reds under the bed".
Our bumbling Treasurer, Wayne Swan, is clearly out of his depth in this budget and if he thinks the mining heavies will be pushovers like his State Labor Premier counterparts then he will get a rude awakening -- as Rudd is now finding. Even the Ruddite mates in China are feeling very nervous about this tax as they can see no other way to combat this attempt to burst their blooming fiscal bubble than to pass on the price hike to their customers. Ever check where most of your electronic and clothing items are now coming from, eh?!?
What will it finally take for Australians to wake up and see that their way of life and their children's inheritance, is being sold off for a song to the Communist ideology of a One World Marxist New Order and that the leaders of this movement are not the Labor Party of old but rather the new regime of Rudd, Gillard, Tanner and Swan?
Commentator and 2GB Talk Radio presenter, Alan Jones, has the final word on this issue as far as I am concerned. To listen to to his wise take on the matter and of that of experts in the field just go to this link .

Yet another shallow SMOKE screen
As we sit here on the eve of what we all know will be new set of higher taxes in the form of something called the HENRY REVIEW, then who would be surprised to find out that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd wants to save all the smokers lives by pricing this addictive LEGAL product out of their reach.
Yesterday in yet another lame attempt to divert public attention from his very embarrassing back flip on his all important Emissions Trading Scheme, Rudd has given the green light to tobacco retailers to put up the average price of a pack of smokes by as much as twenty five percent.
Not to mention the ever growing booze tax hikes, yet another success story in the battle to stop people from drinking to excess!?!
To add insult to injury he, Rudd, then has the gall to state that this tax hike is to provide for the 5 billion dollar BRIBE that he needs for the states to roll over and allow the federal overlords to take not only control of the health system but also swipe a third of the GST revenue that the states need to make any improvements possible.
Granted the current state governments couldn't before and cannot now fix this basket case of a public health service, which leads to another question for the delusional PM: "How the hell does Rudd plan to make such miraculous reforms work?" I have yet to see any actual working plan.
Cynically, and I believe justifiably, Rudd is bluffing and pandering and showboating again and once again is displaying that he has so much contempt for the Australian public that he believes that we will continue to follow his Pied Piper's attempt to lead us over the cliff of a socialist new order.
All that this empty-suited socialist has done in the last 24 hours is to force millions of smokers to go out last night and stockpile as many smokes as they could afford to buy. One in a thousand may use the price rise as a leverage to quit but the reality is that this will do nothing more than further alienate Rudd from his traditional base, the working class family. And if the memories are strong and long enough to last until the next federal election, which I predict will be sometime around late June early July, then Rudd may have just done the Conservative opposition the biggest favour this country could ever ask.
Still it is tough if you smoke, because now the extra money that you needed for your private health care or your kids' education or just the basics of life is no longer there because the addiction to nicotine is comparable to an addiction to heroin: thus the smokes will always take priority. How can this man get dressed in the morning? He truly hasn't thought about any of this!

"GIVE ME A HARD HAT, MY POLLS ARE DOWN"
Being interviewed while wearing a hard had seems to be the latest Leftist idea. They seem to think it makes them look more active or something. As even a Leftist commentator said recently: "Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and Kristina Keneally are also serial hard-hat offenders"
I would say that you would be hard up to find any sensible adult in this country, who would not agree that health reform is certainly now an issue worth discussing and worth investing in. What the general public do know about our failing health system, would fill a library but what the answers are to creating a successful and efficient national health system are as varied as the the problem itself. At least this issue is now at the surface of discussion and is apparently at the top of our Prime Ministers list of priorities ............. THIS WEEK !
Just like the many election promises that K Rudd made in 2007, this too is but another grab for the popular spotlight that got this empty suited man of charisma elected and a way to divert our attention from the seamless line of policy disasters since he moved into the Lodge.
Just like Benito Mussolini in 1939, Kevin Rudd is all about talk and hairy chested rhetoric yet can not back up anything that he says with actually accountable figures or even a clear and decisive plan.
Just to remind you of some the many failures of the Rudd regime, I will start with the pathetic "SORRY" statement and the so called reconciliation that was to heal all the pain and inequality suffered by the original inhabitants of this prehistoric land, right up the the "stolen generations" and the cruel white mans way of assimilating these godless children into white man's Australia.......
Yet, it is clear that nothing but left wing bleeding hearts and soft headed dreamers were the only ones who were truly appeased by that stunt. Really I don't know why he bothered as these naval gazing, hanky wringers always vote Labor anyway.
Then we move to "the greatest moral challenge of our time", (Rudd's words not mine),Global Warming/Anthropogenic climate change. Well, where do you start? Nowhere, because the lie that is the greatest hoax and mass global scam perpetrated on the West ever, still leads us to Kevin Rudd once again jumping up and down saying "look at me. look at me, I'm the Piped Piper from Queensland" to all of his fellow one worlder socialist mates in the UN; I'm taking Australia to Copenhagen and I will be the one to leads us out of global disaster............
Yeah Kev!?!, that was another enormous load of crap that resulted and would always have resulted in nothing less that an expensive junket for you and your sycophants.
Now that his credibility was even more on the line and even ALP voters were starting to look skyward when they heard "Who voted for this clown?", Kevin needed to get back into favour with the punters and start to address some of those policy on the run promises that he made back in 2007.
The "working families" need help now and what better way but to introduce , "Fuel watch" and "Grocery watch" and announce that his government will build hundreds of child care centres to take pressure of struggling the Howard battlers. Yet again more failed policy that resulted in nothing and about a dozen child care centres actually built. This was again another waste of our money.
Still Kevin just cannot stop (I kind of admire that in him) so it's on to the great Home Insulation Scheme, this will employ thousands and ensure a better quality of home comfort as well as reducing energy use so as to stop those evil black clouds of carbon dioxide from killing us all and to keep the Green support alive and well, aka giving the dog a bone.
Of course Kevin 07 is too busy to actually nut out the details of this one himself, after all he has a reputation of being the most travelled Aussie PM ever and he wouldn't want to waste a frequent flyer point, so he passes it to his parachuted rock star, sell-out minister, Peter Garrett, who completely ignores the industry's expert advice and as a result causes death and destruction and causing him to lose his job.
Rudd then cancels the scheme and still has the bottle to offer the Australian taxpayer a multi-million dollar bill to fix up the dangerous insulation's caused by the rorters that he created along with the damaged reputations and lost income for hundreds of reputable insulation installers.
Ooooppps Kevin, quickly, roll out Julia Gillard and lets start spruiking the great Building the Education Revolution. Lets get those laptops on every kid's desk and spend millions fixing up the run-down schools. Alas and yet again not a laptop to be seen and a festival of rorts and errors that has turned this B.E.R into the Big Education RIP OFF.
Oh no Kevin, Rove doesn't want you on his show anymore and now your falling in popularity polls, what will you do to save your skin?..............
I've got it!, let's take away all the GST money that we give the states (after all we need some money to pay back our 300 billion dollar debt to China after giving everyone a $900 bribe) to run the stuffed up public health systems and blame the states (doesn't matter if they are ALP, they are unelectable anyway, and then it will look like you have kept one election promise.
Remember, cut the emergency waiting time down to 4 hours. Then every one will say, "hey I don't need to pay for my own health care , I'll just go onto the public system and I will be happy to wait only 4 hours."
Until of course it is realised that everyone will do that thus tripling demand for public health overnight and turning a basket case of bureaucratic heavy incompetence into a third world system that any one from Afghanistan or Sri Lanka will be happy to use, after all, with the borders now open to one and all, these folk will need to feel right at home.
But seriously folks.......that was serious by the way. Health reform is not about money, health reform is about changing the habits of people who seem to think that they can do what ever they like to their bodies because the government will always look after them. At the moment that is why we cannot offer a decent and effective health system.
Not a word from Kevin Rudd about mental health (a much larger issue I am sure) or even dental health and just teaching folk the importance of maintaining wellness.
As long as the PM has a camera in his face and a sympathetic and supportive media to help spin his pandering and misguided untruths, then you can always expect to see a little man in a hard hat and a reflective vest sitting at the end of your hospital bed, promising the world ......... if you get a bed that is!

EVEN WORSE THAN GOUGH
Gough Whitlam (Still alive in his 90s) was a Labor Party Prime Minister of Australia in the '70s who knew lots about most things -- but (by his own admission) nothing about economics. His chief achievement was to overspend on madcap schemes to the point of giving Australia 19% inflation.
With all the issues at hand and in this, an election year, one would think that the Federal Coalition Party would have little to do but sit back and wait.
With Rudd's GST blackmail of the states and his complete unabashed bribery of the voter, with borrowed CHINESE money! On top of all of the broken promises, untruths, pandering, rhetoric and just downright irresponsibility when it comes to border protection and the economy, how then can this man, Rudd, and his government expect to maintain their place in power?
Once again we seem to witness history repeating itself -- and who would have thought that the 1972 Whitlam Government could have ever have been surpassed for socialist big government policy and incompetence and yet still hold such high popularity with the average punter?
Today, Gough Whitlam is being referred to as a living legend, even after he was rightly dismissed by the Governor General, Sir John Kerr, back in 1975. The first and, to date, only Australian Prime Minister to be FIRED!!!
Alas, I can foresee that this present PM will also be held in high regard in years to come. Like Ned Kelly and Chopper Read, we Aussies seem to love our villains.
This is in my mind the most troubling symptom of a populace that has become disillusioned by a string of corrupt and inept state and federal politicians and made brain dead by an over sycophantic leftist media -- along with decades of Socialist/Marxist engineering by those who would have you believe that what is happening in the Big Brother House and on the footy field is FAR more important and relevant to you and your children's lives than the high-taxing big government and the slow decay of your culture.
The very freedom and democracy and culture for which your grandparents and generations before, spilt blood, sweat and tears to build and maintain will be nothing less than a notation of events in the rewritten history books of our great grand children.
This is just what the one-worlders have been planning for ages -- and with the tool of "Political Correctness" we have given Rudd and his minions the green light to piss away our children's rightful inheritance whilst he and his ilk will sit high at the table of true power, THE NEW UNITED NATIONS!
Below is a link to one of the most important interviews and social and political comments of this Federal election year. I would like to think that every Australian could listen to and absorb the wise observations of two of this country's most aware commentators and patriotic Australians that I have ever had the honour of knowing, Alan Jones and Piers Akerman.
