What I Have Come to Notice

Do not read this if you are a Rainbow fascist and intent on insulting me, as I will insult you back.

I would not want my child to go to a school where being gay is normalised.
Homosexuality is not normal. The male must ‘fit’ into the female in the correct place that it was designed for. Anything else is forbidden. There is a karmic consequence which will be experienced at a later date; especially male to male and anal sex of any gender.
Once homosexuality is normalised, (as it will be and is being) values will degenerate from normalising homosexuality, to sex with animals (bestiality), bastardisation and other 50 shades of kink and debauchery. It is a fact because it is already happening.
I have not personally come across any hate from the NO voters, but I have had horrible and untrue things said to me personally. Since I first wrote this I was shown a vile post, so vile I can’t repeat it here. It has upset me that anyone would equate what I write with vile stuff like that. But I now have a sneaking feeling that it was done by the person who sent it to me. Mostly I just post on Twitter: I’m Voting NO. This is not directed at any specific person or any gender. The only time I post more is when people ask me why. And then I tell them why as I am doing here; still nothing personal coming from me. All of a sudden these strangers know all about me, they know what I know, they know what I don’t know and they know what I think. This is crazy stuff for a rational and clear thinking person to have to reply to or ignore.
Same Sex advocates mostly concentrate on love. They say that Love is Love. This of course is true. I love my daughter, but I don’t have sex with her. Once love is romantically linked to sex it isn’t just love. If two men love each other and are not homosexual, then all is good. I have no problems with love.
50 years ago homosexuality was illegal in most places. This was a bad law and should never have existed. As long as sex was between two consenting adult couples, it should have only been the business of the couple and their karma that was at stake. Now in a very short time the pendulum is swinging the opposite way, equally wrong, from one extreme to the other.
The swing has arisen since the proliferation of the Internet and the ease of watching porn. I have seen the most horrific things on the Internet that I would never have seen in life. The availability of such degrading sexual viewing has normalised degrading behaviour. I clicked on a link on a website that I was a member of. The profile was of a very good looking man. I clicked on Broadcast just so I could see him in person, but it was two lesbians and a German Shepard dog. The butch looking woman had a whip and she whipped the other more feminine woman who then lent over a couch and the dog came to her from behind and copulated with her. I was shocked and I reported it. The profile went down for a day. The very next day it was back up with the same profile photo. So the site virtually has condoned the behaviour.
Personally I think marriage is rather stupid and unnecessary. Why should we need a certificate to say that we can legally live with someone and have babies with them? I follow Natural Law. Marriage is not part of Natural Law. Marriage is a human invention so that children may know their fathers. Of course many people choose not to marry and have children. This used to be known as ‘out of wedlock’. Taking children from unmarried mothers was equally wrong and thank Goodness that has died a natural death.
People have called me homophobic, but it hardly applies to me. I don’t treat gays any differently than anyone else. When I bought a new car, I gave my old registered car to a gay couple. But if I was invited to a gay wedding, I would not go. I don’t despise gays, though I do not condone their behaviour and therefore will not advocate on their behalf. It is not for me to tell them how to live their lives. I like people who are likable and I dislike people who are not regardless of who they are.
We are finally getting a handle on Domestic Violence, partly due to Rosie Batty, after the tragic death of her son. Before she became high profile, domestic violence was a secret affair and hidden from view and not taken seriously by the police. This is one thing going in the right direction and no longer viewed as a natural part of life to be suffered mainly by women. Incest has generally been hidden and children’s lives ruined sometimes for life. My view is that if anything is between consenting adults and done in private, it should not be illegal. They will receive their karma at a later date. But if one is not a consenting adult, child or animal; the perpetrator must be dealt with harshly.
I do disapprove of the way some gays behave. I was walking down a little track at Maroubra beach at the bottom of Bond St where my daughter lives and came across two naked men having sex. They did stop pumping arse when I made eye contact, but I just had to walk past as if I hadn’t noticed.
There are many things that need to be changed and marriage isn’t one of them.
If you are going to criticise, make sure you are logical and correct and that it applies to the blog, not to the way I dress or my age or anything unrelated. If you do feel to insult, just realise that it may go against your cause. People will not respect you. People do respect me that know me.


FUCK vs fuck

Ok, as a Gnostic, people may expect that I never swear. Well I do and when I do, I do without any guilt. From a Gnostic’s point of view, there is no such thing as a bad word.


Words become bad by the way they are used and then it isn’t just one word that is bad, it’s the whole sentence.


So I might say, “Oh fuck! I’ve just been stung by a bull ant!” To bleep this word out on TV is plain stupid. Everyone knows the word. My daughters knew it the day they started at primary School. And if they don’t know the meaning, then what is the point of drawing attention to it? This is what I call small ‘f’ fuck. A word can never be bad in itself as it is just a combination of letters. It is no worse than flick, frock or suck. It all depends on what you do with the words that you choose and not the letters. If I write this word…isklttle, would this offend you? It shouldn’t as it has no specific meaning and neither has small f fuck. It can mean the same as shit another bleeped out word, yet faeces and excrement are not. When a person exclaims “Shit!” they are not thinking of excrement. They are exclaiming a certain anguish, pain, shock or even excitement in some cases. There is nothing bad behind the exclamation.

Everyone silently says the word fuck as the TV bleeps it out. Those that miraculously have never heard the word, Quakers maybe, then they only have to ask someone or go without knowing as usual. I’ve heard fuck heaps of times on daytime radio, always a small f though.


Now how do you think an upper case F Fuck would be represented? Everyone should be able to differentiate between the two.

Bogan talk some may call it. “Why don’t you just Fuck off you Fucking dick-head!” Perhaps it would be safer not to televise these sorts of people who talk in this abusive manner. Who wants to listen to that way of talking anyway? Anyone who does want to listen to it on TV or radio, most likely hear it in their own homes anyway. So they would hardly care if it’s bleeped.


Then there is the third meaning and guys, most wo-men dislike fuck being used instead of sex. Never tell a wo-men that you want to fuck her. No matter how gorgeous you think you are, very few wo-men want to be fucked. When a bogan says “get fucked!” They are insulting the person they are saying it to. So why would wo-men want to get fucked? Believe me they don’t, unless they have mental problems, or they are Bogans and that’s how they talk.


It is difficult to understand the implication behind the bleep or ***’s in this sentence: “You f***ing C**t! Shut your f***ing mouth or I’ll knock your f***ing head off and kick it down the f***ing street!” If this is read by a person who knows the word implied by f***ing, how is putting *** instead of the full word going to change the meaning of the sentence? The wording is aggressive and threatening. If the word Cunt is also **ed, then the entire meaning is missed if the person cannot guess the **ed word. It is debatable that it true meaning is even thought of by the speaker. It has become a swear word, similar to calling a man a dickhead. What is a dickhead? To me it signifies someone you don’t mind calling an idiot. He could have an above average sized penis, or more appropriately, very small. The reader has to know the nick name for penis is Dick. If you already know these things, what’s the problem with hearing or reading it?


It always amuses me that whenever you see a group of nude people on TV they blur out the bits, yet everyone in the actual vicinity got full view whether they liked it or not. They could always shut their eyes, I suppose.

Hands up those who wish to keep the bleeps and to always see the ***’s.



The World in Decline


I didn’t enjoy the 50’s at the time. I was a teenager and at school for most of it. But if I compare it to today, I know which I prefer.

I had a difficult time with my parents. I never did any dishonourable thing whilst living at home, but my mother always thought the worst of me which things were completely untrue. I was kicked out of home at 18 years of age when none of my friends had left home. But getting a job at short notice was not a problem. My mother gave me 50c and told me to go to Melbourne and not to come back without a job. I was scared, nervous and dismayed that my mother cared so little for me. Luckily I did come back with a job, just for the asking. The first place I approached made a position for me. A couple of months later I was told to leave home.

Life was simple back then, even though you could be sacked for no reason given, another job was just around the corner. I managed for years without a car and telephone. I was 23 years old before I got my first landline and signed my first lease. There were no House Inspections back then and I completely redecorated an entire 3 bedroom apartment with very limited permission.

I was pretty much oblivious to politics. As long as I was receiving a pay packet every week and I could pay my rent, I was doing ok. I never saw a homeless person or someone begging and I had no idea that there was such a thing as the Dole. I have always been pretty good with money and I budget well. Perhaps they should make me Treasurer ha ha ha.

Today is a different story. I am now on the Age Pension. I could have been a millionaire, but I chose to ignore opportunities if I didn’t deem them ethical or pleasant. At 26 I bought my first house without any help from the government. I renovated it all by myself, except for new floorboards throughout. I kept it for 13 months during which time it was rented out and I went back overseas.

After 13 months I sold it for 100% profit. I could have made 200% if I had gone to auction. I was made an offer after only one day on the market and I accepted it. My dream was to be sole proprietor of several shops; which is what I chose. I never went bankrupt and I never starved.

Living on the Pension is life on the edge: Especially with this LNP Government in Australia who only have respect for the rich and have an appalling lack of empathy for anyone who is not. They slap themselves on the back repeatedly trying to convince the intellectually ignorant that they are doing such a great job at cleaning up Labor’s mess. Labor never left a mess. How can they have left a mess if the Treasurer was awarded for the best performance in the Industrial world? But MSM never pick them up for it. I don’t know if it is because they are not quick enough to realise what was actually said. Or they choose to ignore it as they are secretly on their side. Whatever reason, we have entered the World of Post Truth Age. For Australia Tony Abbott started it off, got away with it and now it’s become the norm. I guess another Tony, Tony Blair started it off in the UK with his weapons of mass destruction lie. And now as of today, January 1st 2017 the US has Donald Trump.

If the media do not pull these liars up, call them out, who will? We can all scream on social media, but it makes little difference. Who was it who said that Twitter was mob mentality and not to take any notice? I despise being called part of a mob. I am a clear thinking individual who knows what is going on and does not like it.

Every direction I look there is trouble. I look to the south and ice caps are melting. The ocean is littered with rubbish, none of which was put there by me. I look to the north and I see trouble in Indonesia, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Timor Leste. Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, all of the Arab States. Most of Africa to the west, most of south America. The USA, once Trump throws his weight around. And then there is Europe. Everything is not fine there either. Democratic countries are leaning to the Right. Why? Because the Left leaning governments have been thwarted by Multi Nationals and Right leaning politicians in league with the multinationals. The democratic System is not conducive to wise thinking and wise governing of any country. I am appalled to watch Parliament devolve into a slanging match. The thing is, if one party does it and the other doesn’t as in Julia Gillard’s case, they are deemed weak at best and useless at worst. That’s why Julia Gillard gave her misogyny speech. It went a long way to telling Tony Abbott that his behaviour was no longer tolerated. I wish Julia Gillard would come back. Now that people have woken up that the party they elected is doing a rotten job and that she was really brilliant under very trying circumstances; they may well acknowledge and admire her style of leadership after this miserable lot we have to contend with now. Name me a country who thinks their country is doing brilliantly. If you say China and Russia, you would be wrong. Only the governing/ruling Party thinks that is so. Both countries are having problems. Both countries are ambitious and the rest of the world waits to see what will happen when Trump is President. I’m not expecting great things that will benefit me and my fellow Australians in any way. Let’s hope that I am completely wrong and world peace is knocking on our door.

The Effects of Alcohol on the Human Body and Mind, Compared to the Effects of Cannabis on the human body and mind

It does not take a high IQ or heightened intelligence to recognise the harmful effects of alcohol on the human body. Doctors in every hospital Australia wide will tell you about the shocking things they have to deal with as a result of alcohol abuse. There are two aspects of this situation: one is the shocking aggressive random attacks on complete strangers; the king hit, the glassings in pubs and the domestic violence mainly perpetrated on women. How much worse can it get when a stranger is king hit and dies either at the scene or has tubes dangling out of him for days with family standing by waiting and hoping, only to lose their son in the end? How terrible it must be for doctors and nurses to have to patch smashed up faces and bodies for no logical reason other than a drunken person did it either to themselves or to someone else. These are dangerous people and doctors will tell you that they hate this aspect of their job.

The second is the horrible slow deaths from such diseases as cirrhosis of the liver, perforated bowel, pancreatitis, cancer, Cushing’s syndrome, gout and delirium tremens. These diseases alone cost governments billions of dollars and all avoidable from abstinence of alcohol or alcohol abuse. There is also a third danger of the effect of alcohol on a human body that is not inebriated, and that is the safety of hospital staff and patients when drunken and abusive persons enter a hospital and behave aggressively or violently. Then there is the very ugly condition of a cauliflower nose and ears. On looking at anyone that has this condition, one knows that they are an alcoholic.

Now I need to point out that having such a disease as cirrhosis of the liver, perforated bowel and delirium tremens is not illegal. It is not illegal to waste government money in this way. It is not even illegal to brawl in the street as far as I can see, when so few people are ever arrested. This latest  Rush More program only arrested the very worst of culprits. And some are only put into a holding cell or sober up room. Is the behaviour so minor that it does not deserve more attention? Where are the holding cells for all those marijuana smokers? Marijuana smokers do not willingly make trouble.

Binge drinking: some people can drink a lot of alcohol and remain sane and cohesive, while others vomit, urinate and even defecate in public, losing all inhibitions and raping women, men, babies and even animals. It is a disgrace to society when governments cater to these hooligans by providing open urinals in the street. But I get it; we don’t want to see men urinating on footpaths to stink the street out the next day when the sun shines on it. Notice no such toilets are provided for women. Do governments always make the right choice when bringing in new laws? Well I can tell you what is the most ridiculous, insane, barbaric and offensive law that has ever been perpetrated in modern history and that is the banning of the use of cannabis, either for recreational use, contemplation or health purposes, as drinking the juice has healing properties. How dare anyone say that I cannot cure or attempt to cure myself with a healing herb that I grow in my garden. And the money governments spend on hunting, hounding, catching and arresting cannabis growers is astounding beyond reasonable belief. Below are  video links to educate those ignorant of its value.





Cannabis is NOT a drug. Cannabis is a plant, a herb and a gift to the planet for good. Cannabis is for happy people who like being happy all the time. Alcohol is for unhappy people who like being happy in short bursts; because no one is happy when they are drunk. Happy people don’t get drunk, ask any psychiatrist.

Cannabis is not addictive. A person is addictive with an addictive personality or character. Remember that you can be addicted to almost anything if you have that disorder; such as food, work, chocolate, coffee and even sex, but none of the above are outlawed.

The benefits of drinking cannabis juice are profound. It not only provides a cure for many diseases and conditions, but is without any dangerous side effects. It is a well-known fact that all medications have side effects, some are dangerous, even fatal and some are numerous, none are benign. Compare the two.

Let’s compare the two: alcohol drunk to affect the senses dulls, inhibits or shows no regard for danger or consequences. The person doesn’t care if they are offending someone, or if they are harming a stranger or damaging property or if they even harm themselves. What do you think of this type of behaviour? Please have an opinion.

Now let’s take the effect of cannabis on the human body and mind: for a start I can tell you from over 40 years of experience that the effect is the opposite of alcohol. Where a person is reckless on alcohol, a marijuana smoker is cautious. Where a person who is drunk is offensive and doesn’t care, a person who is stoned is very caring, considerate and astute. Where a drunk is noisy and rowdy, a stoner is quiet and laid back. A stoner never harms themselves or others, they are peaceful people, but this is seen as hippy culture and not to be tolerated. Why does the right wing, hawkish character always think peace loving doves are worthless human being and must be controlled or manipulated? We have our own minds, thank you. And we are more than justified to know that our way is the only way to success. But politicians, police and the judicial system are in the main hawks that are bellicose, bellicose towards anyone different from them. Well they are different from me, but I’m not bellicose towards them. I am ready to fight, but I won’t be killing anyone, nor locking any one up, no extracting money from anyone.  A peaceful person who needs to make their own decisions about their health, their spiritual wellbeing, is obliged to break the law.

Let me tell you something about hippy culture, though I am not a hippie myself, I see them everywhere I go. Let’s take a hippie festival for instance: they are usually alcohol and drug free. Alcohol is served at Woodford Folk Festival, but no one there drinks to excess. There are never any brawls and I have never seen police in attendance. Why, because Woodford Festival goers are responsible people who care about their environment and other people. Take an event like Big Day Out on the other hand and there are juvenile drunks everywhere. Take also soccer and football matches at stadiums, always a lot of drunken people; and at the races the same, drunken people vomiting on our TV screens. What a disgrace. And at these events where there are drunks, rubbish is left behind by the tonne. How many tonnes of rubbish are left behind on New Year’s Eve every year? There is always a police presence and always some arrests. Go to a hippie festival, no drunks, no one looks scary or dangerous and everyone is well behaved, enjoying themselves peacefully, looking after their environment and no rubbish is left behind. For extraordinary reasons beyond my comprehension, these people’s culture is deplored and vilified; they are persecuted beyond any reasonable stretch. Why? Well I would like you to tell me. Maybe it’s because very few hippies are gainfully employed. And why might this be? Maybe you have decided that they are all lazy bastards. But this may be very far from the truth. Some people do not fit in to what society has dictated is the ‘norm’. People to the Right of politics despise those to the Left. Hippies are to the left, they are the people who care about the environment. Those to the Right are often in power. They only care about money and progress, usually of the wrong kind. How many jobs are available to those who are peace loving, nurturing and responsible? I mean really, just about every job has its down side for an environmentalist. It’s only those who yearn after money and wealth who put up with or perpetuate that way of living. They are the ones who say, “fuck the environment, I need to make lots of money”. Jobs come first and the dollar rules. So hippies are poor and the Right are rich, but in my opinion the Right are usually wrong.

Smoking cannabis or marijuana as it is known when smoked, puts the person in a pleasant frame of mind and is not a danger to anyone, even to the smoker. Now I do not include hydro here. Hydro is another thing all together and I do not recommend it. I am referring to organically grown bush cannabis. I have smoked for over 40 years and I take exception to the fact that I can be dictated to as to what I can do in my own home or on my own property to my body when it is my experience and knowledge that I am doing no harm to anyone, to any one’s property or myself. I am in my 70’s and it is neither reasonable, nor logical for someone younger than me to tell me what I can do. A ridiculous law has been institutionalised by those who either have never smoked it at all, or if they have most probably did so in conjunction with alcohol. There is no need to mix marijuana with alcohol and it is not those peace loving people who usually do this. Every now and then you will hear on the news that a crime has been committed and the person was ‘on’ marijuana. The Main Stream Media love to get that in. But be sure that they were not ‘on’ marijuana alone. Either alcohol or other drugs would be involved and it is those other drugs or alcohol that would be the culprit. Stoners don’t go out raising hell, behaving like idiot hooligans.

I regard marijuana as a friend, as when I smoke I can see a different perspective. So that different perspective is like another person’s opinion or point of view. Two heads think better than one, if they are intelligent. I have never done anything bizarre when smoking and neither has anyone I have ever known and I have known many people who smoked marijuana in my life. It’s as if the government is saying “let’s outlaw good behaviour and promote bad and dangerous behaviour. Only arrest those who have gone too far endangering other human beings, or when one of their own is harmed, such as in the case of the police. And if you stumble upon any peaceful people, arrest them. Thank God we have this law that was made a few decades ago, that made marijuana illegal, use sniffer dogs if you have to. Do you see how bizarre it all is to someone who is thinking truthfully and logically? This is a very unreasonable law.

Cannabis is a herb and grows wild in many countries. In fact it grows outside the gates of the King’s Palace in Nepal. I have seen it. No one gives a hoot about it and it’s often fed to pigs and other domestic animals. Andrew Kavasilas, author of Medical Uses of Cannabis information for medical practitioners, says that past government policies on the use of cannabis are unfounded. Dependency does not present undue risk. Unlike alcohol one does not get more and more stoned the more you smoke, like you do with alcohol, you get more inebriated the more you drink. Andrew Kavasilas says in his Preface that until five years ago many published studies had not used any natural cannabis plant material in their studies. Politicians have used these results to make political points to uphold the law and to demonise those who smoke it. While politicians front up to parliament inebriated and get away with sniffing seats that offends the person who sat there, groping a woman’s breast from behind in the Senate whilst being televised is embarrassing. Dry humping another man’s leg is quite disgusting. Urinating into a customer’s shoe at a Japanese restaurant must top them all. Always deplorable behaviour when too much alcohol is consumed. They were all politicians doing that. You would expect they set an example. But many in our eyes are plain disgusting.

Drunken behaviour is on our news every day; but never stoned behaviour. There have been zero deaths caused from smoking or ingesting marijuana. The death toll from alcohol has not been recorded. Count car crashes, murders, accidents, people falling off roofs, balconies etc. and drownings. It would amount to millions over the years, but not a single death as a result of getting stoned. Yet this benign practice is outlawed. There is no valid reason.

There have been 540 alcohol related arrests this year, but not for drinking alcohol, for outrageous behaviour causing harm. Yet people are being arrested for blowing a reading for a joint they smoked a month ago. Bizarre. The person no doubt was at home quietly listening to music minding their own business, but that is seen as abhorrent behaviour. What is abhorrent is that this peaceful person can be persecuted for being peaceful and benign. Smoking marijuana merely makes one mellow, not boisterous and obnoxious.

I could write several million instances where alcohol did harm, but by now you have the picture, so there is no need for that inclusion.

I propose that the law be abolished that bans the use of cannabis and marijuana for any purpose and that if a crime or an offence is committed that it is the offence that is breaking the law, not the partaking of a harmless herb; just as it is with alcohol. Alcohol is the real villain, ask any doctor.

Here are some links for those who are ignorant to the benefits of cannabis use.

Kim Jong-un ‘very drunk’ when ordering executions http://ninem.sn/C145GXK

No fatalities for cannabis use have been reported up to 2010 Wikipedia


No fatal overdoses associated with cannabis use have been reported as of 2010.[17] A review published in the British Journal of Psychiatry in February 2001 said that “no deaths directly due to acute cannabis use have ever been reported”.[18]

I want the people who read this, (whether they be politician, police or judicial system operator) to be open minded, think reasonably and logically and come to a decision that one is superior to the other. If it takes a ballot in Parliament, then it must not be secret. A secret ballot would encourage people to vote stupidly. Politicians look stupid enough as it is without having to put on the Dunces hat.

If you have been sent this report via Australia Post, you are part of the system that has discriminated against an otherwise law abiding society of free thinking citizens whose views and opinions differ from yours no doubt.

Does any government want half a million mellow cannabis smokers to descend of the lawns of Parliament House or Government House and light up their joints on mass? How would the existing system deal with half a million peaceful protesters? How?

As for cannabis damaging the brain? I’m 71 years old and I can memorise a whole deck of cards, all 52 in order. Can you?

If there is not an immediate response, not to me, but to changes in the law, I will be forced to challenge this stupid law in the High Court. It will be easy to get every person who enjoys marijuana for whatever purpose to donate $5 to that cause. Wouldn’t that quickly prove just how many Australians flaunt this ridiculous law.


P.S. If you are such a person who knows cannabis prohibition is a farce, please work out how you can do your bit to bring about legalization. Photo copy 9 copies and send to influential people and give to those whom you know want marijuana/cannabis legalised.

My Comment on Morning Breakfast RN with Fran Kelly 11-9-13

Regarding what James Bourne has written: The incoming government lacks the numbers to pass legislation unopposed, throwing all of their election promises into doubt. Of course it is a foregone conclusion that the ABC and the rest of MSM will never see this as a broken promise, oh no.

Let me make this quite clear: Julia Gillard did not at any time break a promise and I will tell you why. When a person makes a promise, the word ‘promise’ has to be used. At no time did she ever use that word.  A politically intelligent person understood why she was unable to keep to her original statement of ‘no carbon tax’. Only the unintelligent that were hell bent on bringing the government down AND the first female Prime Minister, considered that a promise had been broken.

Are you Fran Kelly et al going to hold Tony Abbott and the rest of his pathetic front bench to account when all HIS promises are also broken? Remember the ones that were written in blood, those promises that have been cremated?  

Key among them is the abolition of the carbon tax—legislation that Tasmanian Liberal Senator Eric Abetz promised would be drawn up within the Coalition’s first month of government. James Bourne

Eric Abetz, has told RN Breakfast that Labor’s support is not only needed, but expected, in order to repeal the carbon tax. And he says the Coalition is no longer as committed to reversing the law in its first four weeks in office. What a nerve this man has! How dare he say this after all the Coalition did and said about Labor and Julia Gillard. Why should Labor support something they are against? Tony Abbott at one stage said “NO” to everything. It was only at the end when he realised it was doing him harm that he changed his tune, not because he thought the policies were good, but because he realised saying “NO” consistently was doing him harm. This is pathetic behaviour and now this same pathetic man is our Prime Minister, the first one that I am ashamed of to be representing us on the world stage.

If there is one thing we have learned from Labor it is that if you rush things through, you might get the headline but you then repent at leisure…James Bourne   This is hardly true of Labor. It reflects the behaviour of Kevin Rudd when he usurped the position of leadership in the ALP. Ok he had the numbers in Caucus, but think about how he acquired them. He acquired them through attrition. He wore people out by his antics, leaks and tantrums. Julia Gillard was a poised, intelligent, cool, polite, fair, charming, steady, steadfast politician, none of which could be said for Kevin Rudd.


Senator Eric Abetz: I still invite the Greens to consider that their belligerent campaigning, saying that they would stand in the way, saw the Green vote halve in my home state of Tasmania, and head south in every other state. Of course no one in Opposition in the past has ever been belligerent. The reason the Green vote headed south along with Labor’s was because of Rupert Murdoch’s relentless attacks on everything green and good. Then there was also Fairfax’s bias, Gina Rinehart and her tirades against the Greens and ALP and lastly ABC’s strong bias in always interviewing the Opposition at every turn and praising them to the hilt making every reasonable person sick. Never pointing out when they were clearly wrong, but when interviewing a Labor MP they harassed them unmercifully.


Erik Abetz: ‘There’s plenty of time for the Greens and Labor to come to the conclusion that it would be appropriate for them to assist the government on such and emblematic issue…like we did with…the Fair Work legislation after WorkChoices. We accepted we’d got it wrong, and we assisted the government in their changing the regime.’ The operative words here are ‘we got it wrong’. Labor will never come to the conclusion that they got it wrong. Why? Because they didn’t. We urgently need to do something about Climate Change. Massive bushfires first week of spring. The temperature here has been 32 degrees C, 3 days in a row and I live in a forest in NSW. I have lived here for 34 years and never been afraid before now. The Coalition accepted that WorkChoices was wrong because the public hated it. They never thought it was wrong and still don’t.

Erik Abetz: ‘Whether we’re going to put something in within four weeks or six weeks after the election—I don’t think the Australian people will be too exercised about that,’ Excited? What does he mean by that? Does he mean that he assumes the people who voted for the Coalition won’t mind any number of broken promises? Or is he saying that they will mind, just as they were being told they minded by shock jocks and MSM when Labor was in power?

Erik Abetz: ‘If there is one thing we have learned from Labor it is that if you rush things through, you might get the headline but you then repent at leisure, and have a lot of other headlines that are very derogatory and deservedly so.’ Well from my constant listening and watching the news, Labor never did get the headlines regarding policies. What they got was a constant barrage of insults, lies and innuendo.  The amount of times some Coalition front bencher used the word ‘lies’ regarding Labor is too numerous to count. Tony Abbott is an admitted liar, but no one, other the reasonable seem to care. Do you see how brainwashed the public are. All those who voted for the Coalition will very soon see the error of their ways and then how will MSM get out of that? Oh of course! They will blame Labor.

Good people get crucified. I’m not a Christian, but isn’t that what they did to Jesus?

The Super Moon has been a very destructive force in my area. It caused King tides and parts of the Gold Coast shore line has been decimated. A friend/acquaintance threatened suicide and a strong woman with good polices was replaced by a weak and difficult man whose policies at this point are an unknown. I see things getting much worse. Very difficult to see anything to be optimistic in this situation and the near future.

Yesterday I went to Robina with my daughter. We hadn’t been there for about a year and we had such a great time. The end of financial year sales were on and my daughter and I never pay full price for anything. We can only afford to shop when sales are on and did we get some great bargains. The drive up taking 2 hours was filled with laughter, my daughter played music on her iPhone from time to time as my car radio decided not to work as of last week. Thank you universe for a broken radio, because if I had known what was happening I would have been tuned in at every possible minute.

When we arrived back to my shopping town and were both at the supermarket a complete stranger came up to us and asked us if we knew what was going on about the leadership spill. I started off by saying, “Oh but that goes on every day, it’s just media hype.” But she insisted it was on in all earnest. I hurried with my shopping, dropped my daughter home and drove as fast as I could to my house, ran to the radio and Wahid Ali was on. At that time there was no outcome and I felt assured that the ALP was not full of foolish people and that Julia Gillard would have the numbers as she had every other time.

My daughter is not the slightest bit interested in politics; she is 28 years old. She has even asked me not to talk to her about it at any great length, as the politicians I mention, she doesn’t know. However when the result was announced, the phone rang and my daughter said, “it’s true, Kevin F**king Rudd is now PM.” I immediately corrected her and said, “no he is not. He is only the leader of the ALP. He has not been sworn in by the Governor General.”

I was too angry to keep talking to my daughter and said good bye and continued to both listen to the radio and ABC TV. My thoughts at the time were that that Quentin Bryce could not swear in Kevin Rudd unless there was ‘no confidence’ in the leadership of the ALP. How could there be no confidence in someone who has been the best PM this country has ever had? Could the Governor General allow the PM to be overthrown by someone who was NOT as competent as Julia Gillard? I don’t think so. Could she swear in Kevin Rudd based on the Polls alone, which in my opinion are rigged to some extent? Could she terminate the PM’s position, based on Main Stream Media’s agenda of wanting Abbot as their puppet? Or doesn’t she know about this? What does the Governor General do all day on an ordinary day? Is she reading all the papers? Is she reading NewsLtd and Fairfax, namely The Age? What articles does she read? Who also informs her of what is going on and who are they and what information do the convey to her each and every day? If in fact it is every day, or just special occasions. Who or what is influencing the Governor General?

This is my view on the situation at hand. The Prime Minister Julia Gillard has conducted herself in a dignified and constitutionally correct manner in the position of PM. There are NO legitimate grounds to terminate the PM’s position. Therefore she must refuse to swear in Rudd based on no evidence of wrong doing or constitutional error. No grounds for termination.

Even though I have had the radio on almost all day, only now at 2:00 PM Thursday 27th June 2013 have I found out from my Guardian email subscription that Kevin Rudd has in fact been sworn in last night evidently after I went to bed exhausted.

I usually wake up at 6:30 AM and turn on the radio to RN with Fran Kelly and I don’t get up until 9:00 AM, unless I am going out early. This morning I stayed in bed for Life Matters which I have listened to since its inception. The first half covered the spill and I noticed that the presenter cut everyone off before they had finished speaking and everyone was sad and upset that Julia Gillard had gone. My guess is that if someone had been anti PM Gillard, they would have been able to finish. Just the impression I got.
ABC with Leigh Sales: If she worked for me I would have sacked her long ago, especially after her last interview with the PM. Last night she snickered at inappropriate places, expectant of 5 year olds. Suddenly she has a different tune she is singing. Almost coming to Julia Gillard’s defence. Once her bait noir, now she is asking the hard questions, but to a fellow journalist no less, (ash credibility) Annabelle Crabb, did you notice MSM lovers, she said that MSM has to get stories that lead and they HAVE to dramatize EVERYthing to get their work published or keep their jobs. That’s what we (the alternative media) have been saying all along. They have been very unfair to Julia Gillard and printed falsehoods for which the moron public sucked up. Gullible!
My last blog was titled: This is my Election Plan, this is now obsolete. I do NOT plan to do ANY of the things I was prepared to do. I will NOT vote for Kevin Rudd. I will NOT be voting ALP and I will NOT be voting for any other Party and that includes the Greens. What I WILL do is vote informal, taking with me a black thick texta and I will put Julia Gillard above the line with a square next to her name and will put a 1 in that square. I will go to the booth at opening time and I will stand in the room with my ballot paper showing it as a placard to every person entering and I will still be there at 6 PM. I will not let this go without my views being known to other voters. That is how I will do it. Now my 2 daughters will not vote ALP either and already 16 of my friends say they won’t vote for Rudd. So what he gains he may well lose, maybe more. This is the biggest mistake ever made in politics. IMHO. This is a dark day in Australian history and now just watch this country go downhill from this day on whoever wins the next election.

Now I put this out on Twitter last night and a few criticised me for it. They said that we must NOT let Abbott win, so we must still vote ALP. Well in my opinion there are two issues here. One, I will not reward a weak and disruptive man whom Caucus said they couldn’t and secondly there isn’t a great deal of difference between Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott, both are staunch Catholics and I am concerned now about the Royal Commission into child abuse in the Catholic Church. Abbott may not last the distance anyway and even if Malcolm Turnbull replaced Abbott, he has no one of substance to work with. The shadow front bench is a pathetic bunch of morons with a shadow Treasurer who can’t do simple math and a vicious deputy with a mean streak. The others aren’t worth describing because they never say anything of substance.

I still feel that Kevin Rudd should have been allowed to complete his term as PM in the first place. He was an elected leader. First mistake. But doing the same thing as punishment to Julia Gillard doesn’t make things right. It’s ALL wrong. Disgusted.

Lastly, I will be writing to Julia Gillard to ask her to consider forming a new party The New Progressive Party, NPP or other name. She will have 6 good people with her and I’m sure those that switched their allegiance at the last moment would join, such as penny Wong. Then Rudd would have to form a Coalition with Julia’s party ha ha ha ha. That’s the only thing that has made me laugh today. But I mean it. This is the only logical solution. I think Julia Gillard would do very well and I would give her every bit of help that I could muster. Let Light prevail.

Open Complaint to ABC

I have been appalled over the past 3 years to see the ABC deteriorate to the point of exasperation. Emma Alberici is the only political journalist I trust and is basically fair. All the others and I include here Tony Jones, Leigh Sales, The Drum, Fran Kelly, Alison Carabine, Sarbra Lane and Marius Benson and others. The latter are all biased towards the LNP and Tony Abbott, it is sickening. I am wondering if anyone reads the Twitter trends, # or even @abc; because in my Twitter feed 80% of my feed is appalled by your shoddy reporting, misleading statements and the on and on leadership spill that has been going on now for 3 years. Give it a rest for God’s sake. Even the morons are sick of it. Boring, boring, boring. We all know what you are up to, decent people that is. The morons haven’t a clue. They suck up your vile rubbish, reporting constantly of insults directed towards the Prime Minister, harping on and on about them. Never addressing her with respect. Constantly interviewing LNP MP’s with regard the ALP issues. How ridiculous is that? Why would they know? You never interview an ALP MP about LNP issues. Why not? Your bias is beyond pathetic, as the Alternative to MSM is constantly pointing out. You should read our blogs some time.

We, the concerned citizens of Australia and decent people of this land will not stand for newspaper trash dictating to our country which government should be in power. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? We will not stand for an alien, Rupert Murdoch spinning lies, distorting truth and misinformation and then the ABC dutifully spreads it further. My God! What is this? Are you all mad at the ABC? Not Kerry O’Brien, he is a champion. Take a leaf out of his book. He is always fair. I may not always agree with him, but I have never heard him denigrate the PM, or be biased on any account. And now as of this morning you are backing up Fairfax, as you do, on that shameful, The Age article or editorial I should say. How dare they. YOU should be saying just that! “How dare they”, not reporting it as if it is the most logical thing to do. Good grief, have you all lost your marbles? Is this sort of thing coming from Newman and Scott? Is this their directive? Are you compelled by instruction or order to propagate the madness, to report and magnify the vilifications towards the PM and to perpetuate the leadership spill EVERY single day? It is not only boring as all hell, it is beyond stupid in the eyes of intelligent decent people. Do you know how absurd you all look? Leigh Sales is getting a very mean expression these days as she gloats on her achievements on making our beautiful Prime Minister squirm. How wrongly she is behaving lately. She used to be good, now she is a ‘has been’. She was good back when she won the Walkley Award, but now she is sinister, mean and conniving to garner an effect. She has lost the plot and has let the award go to her head, which has swollen to football field proportions. She comes across as unsmiling and “I’m going to ‘get’ you any way I can even if I have to talk over you, contradict you or shout at you”. Just like she did with Craig Emmerson on Thursday night. It was a disgrace and IF you had checked the Twitter feeds for #Lateline you would have seen the myriad of complaints and reprimands. Disgraceful and I hope management gave her a ticking off.

Things are going from bad to worse and if you are all not more careful from now on We The People of Australia may very well charge you with committing a crime against the government and Julia Gillard. I’d be very careful in the manner in which you report from now on. People want news, they do not want Rupert Murdoch, nor Gina Rinehart’s parrots at the ABC. Otherwise people are going to ask if Rupert Murdoch is doing something underhand at the ABC and that goes for Fairfax as well. It is a well known fact between intelligent, decent people that Rupert Murdoch considers Abbott as his puppet. He, (Abbott) can do his best work for Murdoch in the Lodge! Der, we all know it. The morons don’t of course. They believe you, but don’t you see the damage you are doing to Australia? Have you spent a second thinking about the consequence of an Abbott government? Why can’t you people at the ABC news broadcasting on political affairs see that not asking Abbott any hard question on HIS policies is downright deceitful. How BAD do you think you look in the eyes of decent people? Very, very bad. If you haven’t broken the law, then the law should be reformed. And as for Rupert Murdoch, he should be in jail. His business are scandalous, yet you let him be King Pin here in Australia, not even his country any more. He is in his dearly beloved US, Australia abandoned, yet you are all sucking up to him. WHY?
