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.

So, what do reckon, will today finally be the day that the majority of Australia has been waiting for, a day when the Gillard lie is reversed and justice, logic and reason prevail? The day in years to come when we can say to each other,..."HAPPY CARBON TAX REPEAL DAY MATE"? Who knows hopefully BUT when a populist loose canon called Clive Palmer has the balance of power in the Senate nothing is sure anymore.
I have no doubt that all the frustrations caused by Palmer to block the Coalition's mandate to repeal this stupid economically destructive waste of time, have all been about political posturing for the PUP. The truth is that Palmer wants the tax gone, after all he did campaign for its removal and it doesn't serve his business interests either but that his last minute amendment stunt was just that, A STUNT!
It had little to do with getting a better deal for consumers, although that's what the average non engaged punter will think was done. No, it was all to do with making Palmer look like Superman to the rescue, that he was the one that called the tune in the end & was the true champion responsible for the end to the madness that was the CO2 Tax. The mainstream media, especially Fairfax, have also gone along for the ride by echoing the lie that Palmer is running the agenda.
Palmer is a clever political animal but he is never to be trusted because at the end of the day if he and his ship of fools don't look good, then no one will, including the future of Australia......, in my humble opinion.

I'm sure you are fans of Monty Python and in particular " The Meaning of Life". If not then please check this classic sketch from that film out.
It appears to me that our Mr Palmer is really our Mr Creosote, and as in the skit, The Waiter (Mr Abbott), keeps his cool under what is nothing less than a very disturbing series of events.
I can't wait for the time when I can draw Abbott handing him that last wafer thin mint! See:
Warning from JR: The Mr Creosote sketches are meant to be disgusting and they are. So discretion is advised. I have not made the links clickable to guard against their being hastily accessed. Mr Creosote is a very fat man who vomits a lot.

Well, now that the initial shock is dying away and like many broken hearted fans of this bloke, yep I really did respect him once upon a time, I was thinking that Rolf Harris was not just another convicted PEDO that got away with his vile acts of betrayal for years and years but like several other recently exposed kiddie fiddlers he was an entertainer!
Sure, there is no doubt that some religious organisations have protected their pedophiles for years and one can never excuse that and I am not saying that all Clergy are guilty nor am I saying that all in the Entertainment Industry are also guilty or compliant. I believe that the vast majority of people in both practices are normal and just as disgusted as the rest of us.
You can certainly understand the denial and deceptive reasoning for the protection of these evil clergy and just what a bad look such terrible behaviour would donate to the cause of Christianity, again I say a warped reasoning, BUT what about the industry that has for years gone out of its way to lampoon and mock Christianity, always taking the high moral ground on these issues?
Well, as it occurs to me, their hypocrisy has no bounds as they are just as guilty for protecting their own pedophiles. Harris's ill treatment of little girls has thankfully been exposed and he will spend the rest of his life as a pariah and hated man but what about those who for their own personal reasons are as guilty as the perpetrator by turning a blind eye to what they knew was happening? When does justice find them? ....... I guess God will sort them out!
I just thought it was a side to this whole tragic event that none of my contemporaries were exploring.

Are basic health checks in supermarkets proper?
Anyone else feel as I do about this one? Does it not smack of total hypocrisy that a major Supermarket Org that sells cigarettes, booze and no end of junk food is now calling itself a Health Care provider?
