Penguins Pray for Global Warming

143
For decades, climate alarmists have been attempting to trigger global cooling by killing industry with carbon taxes and absorbing solar energy with windmills, solar panels and wood-fired power stations.

Back to Bolted-Down Industries

Once upon a time Australia was attractive to processing, refining and manufacturing industries using our abundant mineral and food resources, our reliable low-cost coal-fired...

THE MYTH OF FREE HEALTHCARE

Healthcare is never free - somebody has to pay for it. Queensland used to have an excellent system, about 50:50 public-private, with the public system funded largely by the Golden Casket (pre-Lotto days) and the private system having your premiums as a tax deduction.

A DEBATE FOR OUR TIME?

365
Sometimes when history is made, you could hardly miss it. Great armies sweep across continents raping and pillaging. Powerful navies blast each other by hostile shores. Tyrants inflict genocide and starvation on hapless populations.

Blowing Our Dollars in the Wind

256
Wind energy produces costly, intermittent, unpredictable electricity. But Government subsidies and mandates have encouraged a massive gamble on wind investments in Australia - over $7 billion has already been spent and another $30 billion is proposed. This expenditure is justified by the claim that by using wind energy there will be less carbon dioxide emitted to the atmosphere which will help to prevent dangerous global warming.

Rising Seas are Nothing New

I’D HAVE PUT A FOOT THROUGH MY RADIO…

311
Here's the thing. Listening to the radio today on my way home from the city and some clown comes on talking about the disgusting conditions at Manus Island. 'The gates of hell' I think he said it was. Whether this bloke is a Greens or Labor plant I have no idea, but his language suggests he might be.

AUSTRALIANS ARE A FAIR MOB

1536
Whether you're from the Left or the Right, giving someone a 'fair go' is in our national DNA. It's a common trait that unites us all. But our sense of fairness is sorely tested when our generosity is exploited or taken advantage of. When we're treated as mugs we arch up.

Correlation, Causation or a Carbon Tax Con-Job?

33
If two things vary in parallel, that is a positive correlation. But it does not prove that one causes the other. For example, wet roads...

THE DEVIL IN THE DETAIL

424
Labor frontbencher Andrew Leigh has always struck me as one of those party nerds who try way too hard to please and to impress. The school wonk you always wanted to give an uppercut after he sat down from reciting word-for-word the first six volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica. The class dobber and teacher's pet desperate for approval, collecting all the little merit badges in his over reach for school prefect.

Global climate is on a Natural See-saw, not a Man-made Tipping Point

The Delusional War on Warmth

856
For decades now, global warming scaremongers have been stealing energy from the environment using windmills, solar collectors and biofuels, force-fed by carbon taxes and emission trading schemes. Their delusional dream is to cool the globe.

Channel Nine Vultures

0

Channel Nine News should be ashamed of itself, hanging around the villa of the four Italian girls like a pack of vultures, inciting high drama and hysterical performances. By the reporter's own admission, the girls reacted to the cameras. Channel Nine, please leave them alone. It's time to give the girls and the family some space.

ARE THE PUPS NOT HOUSE TRAINED?

Imagine Australia as a public company ... Australia Co. Now let's say Australia Co. was being pretty badly run, in fact let's say those who were running the business for the previous six years had just about screwed the business into the ground.

Cubbie Station Boxes Ticked

0

Chinese investment in Cubbie Station is a win / win for China and for Australian jobs. Trade with China is essential to Australia’s wealth and financial health. There are safeguards in place to meet stringent national interest tests, and the Cubbie Station purchase ticked all the boxes. Barnaby Joyce’s objections are based on nationalism, but Australia is not an inward looking backwater. We’ll always need foreign investment. This $300 million injection from China and the jobs flow is a much needed boost to the area, the State of Queensland and the working families.

ONLY IN THE MOVIES

WHAT’S NEXT, FOOD-FREE FRIDAYS?

197

SCHOOL BILLS – WHO PAYS?

0

Julia Gillard makes a lot of grand statements she, or we, can't afford to fund. Again today she committed $6.5 billion spending to education reforms. She wants the States to pay 70% of the bill. The problem here is (a) the States know nothing about it (b) the States can't afford it because most States are still grappling with State Labor debts in the billions of dollars. Like Rudd, she doesn't consult yet makes bold announcements with no detail. She justified getting rid of Rudd for this very reason.
