ONLY IN THE MOVIES

288
The Australian acting and entertainment celebrity fraternity, practising and rehearsing their bestest outraged faces and voices, has demanded Tony Abbott DO SOMETHING about saving the lives of the Bali heroin smuggling ringleaders.

BALI TWO SEALED THEIR OWN FATE

I'm going to cop a blast for this, but I struggle to find much sympathy for the Bali Nine ringleaders. First up, I'm opposed to...

IT WAS NO PICNIC BACK THEN, EITHER

497
I hate it when the alarm goes off at stupid o'clock on Anzac morning and I know I have to drag myself out of bed to go to the dawn service. At the same time I love the way that this small deprivation forces me to think of the sacrifices that were given to create this amazing society that we live in.

‘Flannery Syndrome’ – a disease for the deluded.

What the ‘Al-Furkin’ hell are they doing here?

725
Two lots of scumbags. Two different worlds. Same bottom line- they don't respect Australia and Australians. Picked up the paper today and read it on the pavement with my cheese toastie and cup of chino.

RUDD’S RELEVANCE DEPRIVATION SYNDROME

564
I am neither a Twitterer nor a Face Booker. Can't see the point. Don't have the time. Not really interested. Unlike the Kruddster who, having just rolled out his latest manifesto which he boldly calls "My Harvard Report", is flat out twittering about it on his Iphone. Or is that iPhone? No matter.

The Bogus Temperature Scare

There are people who want us to:  close all coal mines and abandon reliable power stations while littering the landscape with unreliable wind turbines and...

RECLAIM RALLY A SUCCESS

677
The hardest thing about being a journalist for a local paper is that not much ever happens in a small town. If a cat gets stuck up a tree, you rush down to get the scoop. School fete? Of course you will be there.

ISLAM, THE RELIGION OF PEACE

407
Australia has never been an "overly" racist country... we have had a few racist townships but that began after the 1960s when the do-gooders wanted to do "the right thing" and allow the indigenous peoples access to the grog... and we all know how that went.

Celebrate the Warmth

We should spend Earth Hour giving thanks for warmth. Just thirteen thousand years ago, Earth was in the grip of a deathly ice age. Sea...

Australia? She’s rooted mate!

1761
You can say what you like but Australia is rooted folks. Completely rooted. There are some things that we cannot recover from and one of them is seven years of Labor follies and free-for-all spending. This time - unlike past times- they have simply gone too far. There's some stuff you just cannot recover from.

NEGATIVITY FROM WITHIN

252
Saw a little of Q&A last night and, although I am not a fan of Australian country music, as much of it sounds just like American country music, I have nothing personal against Troy Cassar-Daley.

Fraser fought with inner doubts

News just through that former Liberal PM Malcolm Fraser has died - a sad, confused man famed for engineering the downfall of the Whitlam government. Perhaps...

Too Many Wild Cards in the Climate Game

Climate alarmists claim incessantly that all bad weather is caused by man’s use of hydro-carbon fuels - oil, gas and coal. They insist that man-made...

PORKIE PIES AND MAGIC PUDDINGS THE TOP TUCKER IN QLD

Just Another Alarmist Temperature Lie

2015 is the make-or-break year for climate alarmism, with a crucial battle planned for Paris in November. So we can expect regular bursts of...

Strange bedfellows in the war on carbon fuels

75
What great cause could unite Prince Charles, President Obama, the Pope, the Arab Oil sheiks, the United Nations, the European Union, the Russians, the Chinese, Pacific Island Nations, most undeveloped countries, the glitterati of Hollywood, left-wing politicians, unrepentant reds, government media, the climate research industry, Big Oil, Big Gas and the Green Blob. It must be something posing a clear and urgent danger to all humanity?

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

81
Most climate scientists accept that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has some warming effect on Earth’s climate, but un-disputed science shows that its direct...

DYING UNDER THE WEIGHT OF FLOWERS

405
Education has come a long way since I was at school. Now that everyone has a calculator on their smart phone, there is no need for children to spend time learning useless things like times tables. Kids are now free to learn much more useful things instead.

Shocking Halal slaughter methods uncovered

1
Horrific footage has emerged of "vicious attacks" at a halal slaughterhouse where animals had their throats hacked at with saws. Other footage shows sheep being kicked in the face by staff and a worker standing on the neck of a conscious animal.

Porky Pies Over Exports

NO WONDER I CROSSED THE ROAD?

363
More than 70 per cent of all chicken slaughtered in Australia is done according to Sharia Law. This means Islamic principles and rituals. Baiada/Steggles and Ingham have more than 70 per cent of the market share and there are other chicken companies like Red Lea who also halal certify their chickens.

$15 grand eh? Are you sure you can afford it?

1196
I'm feeling a bit sorry for Prince Andrew and if I'm to be honest, being a baby boomer, I have enormous respect for the Queen but her dysfunctional brood is a product, not so much of the strictures of a Royal upbringing, but of the contemporary lifestyle.

Finally a solution for Australia’s radical Muslims

360
Welcome to the Muslim Appropriation and Rectification Council of Australia. Or MACA, to make things easier. An organisation that has been established to support Muslims in their quest for a happy life in this country. An organisation to set out the rules in Australia - FOR Muslims. Break these rules and you guessed it - you're going to 'Maccas'! Which, as you will find out, is a bit different to Mecca!

I GUESS I HAVE A LOT TO LIVE UP TO

372
One thing I'll say about the Rudd/Gillard 'Gumments', they provided extraordinary entertainment. As the country plunged deeper into the abyss and became an international comedy show, our gobs were smacked daily with each new revelation and bungled power plays. Sure they plunged us into the Mariana Trench of debt which most of us will never see erased, but they were so bad, they were comical. The Laurel and Hardy of the political set.

HALAL-UJAH!

240
There is a lot of confusion about supermarket meat and whether or not it is halal certified. The thing is in a lot of cases the meat they source is in fact halal slaughtered and fees are paid. The supermarkets cannot label the meat as such though because the meat is then transported, stored or sold along with haram (forbidden) items such as pork.

THE LIFE OF PIE FACE

I love a chunky meat pie. What's more indulgently, wickedly, deliciously Australian than a steaming hot pie smothered in sauce, and a squirt of...

THE PARTY’S OVER

I know some of you think I'm a bit of a 'Merchant Banker' but when it comes to people, I'm rarely wrong. This is what 60 odd years on this earth does for you. You finally get the wisdom.

REMEMBRANCE DAY

Today is Remembrance Day, an appropriate time to reflect on our ability to defend ourselves. History holds lessons. Back in Dec 1941, Japan suddenly attacked the huge US Naval base at Pearl Harbour.

HOW WILL GOUGH’S MEMORIAL BE REMEMBERED?

231
Whatever your view on Gough, and mine is he would've made a better stand-up comic with his own TV show than PM, his wit in Australian politics was sharp, possibly unrivaled, challenged only by the likes of Fred Daly, Jim Killen and the affable John Button.

JUST LOOK AT THAT JIHAD BODY COUNT!

89
Since September 2001, thirteen years have passed, despite the fact that it seems just like yesterday. Since that fateful day on the 11th of September, the world has changed forever... and sadly it is reaching a stage where western democratic Governments are going to have to take firm action in regard to the mass violence being perpetrated in so many Islamic countries in the Middle East and North and Central Africa.

Misconceptions about Halal Certification

179
It would seem some halal certification agencies are getting a little nervous about the recent backlash towards unnecessary halal certification fees and the fact many Aussies are waking up to the rort.

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.
