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.


ABC RN Life Matters May 31st 2013 My Comment

I posted this comment on Life Matters, however it was moderated and not posted. They have done this before and at other times they have edited my work. The time they edited it they told me it was sexually explicit, which it was not. That program was about sex, but apparently you can’t comment on it.

The topic that got me banned/blocked was Can You Honestly Say You are not Racist? And it was all about Adam Goodes complete with photo.

I didn’t think that what the girl said was necessarily racist. If I were to call Tony Abbott an ape, would that be racist given that I am white? I think a racist remark must be specific to the race. If the word boong (don’t know if I spelled it right as I have never used the word), but I believe that is specific to Aborigines. A race must not be blamed for the behaviour of one person or a small group of people, no matter how bad that group is. I don’t think one should ever use a word that is not applicable to humans, such as ape, cow, dog or rat. I think ‘fool’ is acceptable as long as it is not used when talking to children.

Personally I love the differences of other races. I am widely travelled and love most going to countries where the culture is totally different from my own. I have friends of all races including Aborigine. I like people who are friendly and honest regardless of what race they are. Also I may dislike people who behave in an antisocial manner, who are not honest or who personally treat me poorly or unfairly; and that also will be regardless of race.

One caller said he was terrified of being called a racist when he calls out at a footy match, “you useless bastard.” Well my advice to him is, if he is so terrified then don’t shout out at all.

So much attention has been placed on this one incident, yet our Prime Minister has had a sandwich thrown at her and that’s evidently fine. Did she make a huge fuss about it. Would it have been racist if the boy was not white? And did the PM seem offended? Her remark was that she thought the boy must have thought she was hungry. How good natured is that. I have been discriminated against my gender. It’s annoying, but I don’t make a huge issue of it. If someone called me an ape I’d reply, “talking about yourself are you?” and laugh.

And one last point and very important to me, I take exception to Andrew Jakubowicz’s words when he said, “when the Liberals and the Coalition come to power at the end of the year.” How dare he! He obviously listens to too much ABC24, Rupert Murdock and Fairfax. He has said this as if the Governor General had deposed Julia Gillard and the ALP and was installing the LNP at the end of the year. There will be an election in September and after that we will know who will lead this country and God help us if it is Tony Abbott. This may be off topic, but it is in response to your guest’s throw away remark which I take umbrage over.

This was a post that was not moderated. Which do you think is the most insensitive? What do you think it was about my comment that got the whole of it moderated? And guess what? It appears that I am unable to comment at all now as the comment box has gone BLACK.

Hi Natasha, I actually thought the comment was more about what Adam Goodes looked like, we are always saying in our family that he looks Neanderthal. Maybe because I wasn’t born in Australia, but I didn’t realise that ape was a racist term. Thanks. Good conversation.

I should also mention that Geraldine Dougue said the word Fuck on radio this morning. It seems some people can get away with anything and others like me can’t get away with very much at all.

About Me and my Political Views

Alternative Media


I would never call the ALP a Leftist government. Though I would go so far as to say they are left of Centre, which is a quite good position for the times. Slightly left of centre can promulgate legislation that the Far Right would not dream of. For myself, I proudly admit that I am further left than that. I am in the middle of left. The far left is too fanatical for my liking.

Having stated clearly where I stand politically, you may also need to know that I am a swinging voter. I vote for the Party that best serves Australia and Australians. I am not a rusted on anything. If I were totally disgusted with both the two party preferred Parties, I will then vote for the Greens, unless they are leaning too far left. I don’t go along with anything that is fanatical. That is not to say that I am a moderate, though I may be in some instances. If the Greens are not getting my vote either, then I vote for The Natural Law Party. The last time I voted for them they only got around 900 votes. When I am disgusted with everyone I vote Informal.

I would not vote Lib, even if Tony Abbott was deposed. I think Malcolm Turnbull would be a good Prime Minister, however, he would never get my vote as he came to my village and said that if he was ever elected PM, he would flood my village and my only road to town to make a dam. There is a back dirt road that goes in the opposite direction, making my journey to town ¾ hour longer. Let’s suppose he never said that and I think he would make a reasonable, if not good PM. His Team is appalling. Ok, Joe Hockey, let me pick him apart please. He has round shoulders. He slumps. He is overweight. He is jovial, (nothing too wrong with that, but he reminds me of Santa). His maths isn’t great, so I definitely do not want an eleven Treasurer. He has a very poor memory. He can be severely irrational, sarcastic and incorrect at times. He trades on the fact that whoever is interviewing him will go with the flow. Thumbs Down.

Now Julie Bishop, I remember thinking how striking she was when she first entered Parliament. A good looking woman, confident and poised, but when she’s rooting for her man and her chance at Deputy PM; she spews venom. I doubt she realises, but at this time, her face contorts into an ugly form that would frighten children in broad daylight. This I will say about her though; if she were elected into Parliament and she had good people with her, she would quite likely be a very good politician in government. Unfortunately she only has morons at her side. Thumbs Down.

Christopher Pyne the whine. This man is clearly in danger of his life at times when it’s his turn to spew forth venom at the Prime Minister or her Cabinet. You can see his face redden and veins stick out on his neck. His eyes go wild, flashing and gnashing of teeth, all for effect for the media, and the public who may watch. Honestly, I think he practices in front of the mirror.  Does he ever say anything nice? Thumbs Down

Talking of red faces. Barnaby Joyce’s face is always red. I’m sure it’s not sunburn. He is definitely an angry man, so maybe from anger or rage. Do you ever listen to anything he says? Sometimes the man does not make sense, yet reporters do not pick him up for it. They just let it go and embark on a new subject. His oratory skills are very poor and I haven’t seen any evidence of what he has done unlike most of the Independents. Thumbs Down

I’ve already said that Malcolm Turnbull would probably make a good PM. He is intelligent, well educated, knows how to run a successful business and until the last three years, always thought was reasonable. I have written to him several times and he has always replied, so thumbs up for that.

Others in the Lib Team are Eric Abetz, George Brandis and Scott Morrison I will call crocodiles, they try to devour anything that is not LNP. 3 Thumbs Down.

I’ll just say a few words about some of the Independents. I like Tony Windsor a lot. Every time he speaks he makes sense. He doesn’t let anyone boss him around. He knows what his region needs and he got most of it for them. He gives his vote to the side that is doing the right thing. And that is only after he has heard both sides in full. I think he is very fair and honest. Has a great sense of humour too. Thumbs Up for Tony.

Rob Oakshott: I have no idea what he has done for his electorate. Not even sure which it is, but I think he takes his job very seriously. I think he is also honest and fair. You can tell he thinks before he speaks, not like Abbott who says things very deliberately, but not well thought out. MSM see him as an ally of the government and treat him like shit, as they do to Tony Windsor. Thumbs Up to Rob.

Independent Senator for South Australia, Nick Xenophon, has called for an inquiry – with judicial powers – over allegations made by John Singleton involving trainer Gai Waterhouse and her bookie son Tom. Has joined calls for Federal Government to rethink its grant-based wage increase to childcare workers, labelling it “ill-conceived and unfair”. Launched The Statewide Gambling Therapy Service has worked in partnership with the Vietnamese Gambling Help Service to develop a therapy program tailored to suit people of Vietnamese background who are experiencing problems with gambling. He has campaigned strongly on Poker Machines. Unfortunately hasn’t been very successful on account of the deficit. If the country was in surplus, he would have got his way. I’m not giving him a Thumbs Up or Down at this point.

Andrew  Wilkie,  independent Federal member for Denison. He was formerly an army officer and then intelligence analyst. In 2003 Wilkie resigned from his position in the Office of National Assessments, an Australian intelligence agency, over concerns that intelligence was being exaggerated for political purposes in making the case for Australia’s contribution to the 2003 invasion of Iraq under the Howard government. [1] Since then he has been active in Australian politics. He was a Greens candidate for both the federal Division of Bennelong in the 2004 federal election and for the Senate in Tasmania at the 2007 federal election. In 2010 he ran as an independent candidate for the state seat of Denison at the Tasmanian state election, narrowly missing out on the final vacancy. Later in the year, again as an independent candidate, he ran for the federal seat of Denison at the federal election and won. He finished third on first preferences but was able to win the seat after the distribution of preferences[2] Wikipedia. I’ll give him a Thumbs Up for blowing the Whistle, but not sure about his political aspirations being achieved.

Bob Katter. Ha ha, honestly, he is always good for a laugh, but I have heard him say some sensible things. The trouble is he is quite ridiculous at times and people tune out to him because they assume he is all BS. His voice is somewhat irritating, but you have to give him credit for getting to where he has. As  for serving his electorate, yes I think he is doing that, and as an Independent, that’s all that matters. Robert Carl Katter (born 22 May 1945) is an Australian federal politician, a member of the Australian House of Representatives since March 1993 for the Division of Kennedy, and the leader of Katter’s Australian Party. He began his parliamentary career as a member of the National Party of Australia, but left the party in 2001 and continues to hold the seat as an independent. On 3 June 2011 Katter applied for registration of Katter’s Australian Party with the Australian Electoral Commission.[2] Katter will sit as the only federal parliamentary member of his new party when it is formally registered. Prior to his election to federal politics, Katter was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland, from 1974 to 1992, representing the seat of Flinders, Queensland for the National Party. Katter was a Minister in the Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen-led National Party government, holding various portfolios between 1983 and 1989.[3] Wikipedia

The ALP did not get my vote at the last election. I was furious that Kevin Rudd didn’t get to finish his term. Was saddened that he was humiliated, but did not think he was a good Prime Minister. He appeared to be efficient, work, work, work, but what was he achieving? The gaff he made in China as Foreign Minister really put the nail in the coffin for me. Considering he has heart problems, I think he should retire or go into State Politics. Thumbs Down.

Julia Gillard has really earned my respect, not only as a person, a woman, but also as Prime Minister. She has poise, is dignified, courteous and genuine. She is capable of answering questions directly and completely. She is not opposed to putting people in place when they are out of line. I think she is doing a great job under very difficult circumstances. The morons out there who defile her and denigrate her apparently do not understand the workings of a Hung Parliament. They are either very stupid or very rich. The very rich do understand, but ignore it as a factor.

The PM has never lied to my knowledge. When she said that there would never be a Carbon Tax under her Prime Ministership, she said it assuming she would be Prime Minister in her own right. Perhaps in hindsight she could have said, “If I have to form government with a Coalition or with Independents or both, I may be forced to bring in a Carbon Tax”. Shall we all blame her for not saying that? Please remember that you cannot break a promise if you have not used the word ‘promise’. A lie is something you know to be not true when you say it. A lie sets out to deceive. No one in the right mind, ha ha ha ha, (yeah right-wing minds do) could say that Julia Gillard set out to deceive. What would be her point? Only the very ignorant think that Julia Gillard has lied. They are wrong, just like they are about so many other things. Eleana

The Tony Abbott I have got to know.

The Tony Abbott I have got to know.

Let me say here that I detest Speedos anywhere but the Olympic Swimming pool. To see him parading around in red budgie smugglers is somewhat revolting. I far prefer nudity to micro swimmers covering a micro part.

Tony Abbott reminds me of a goanna, just like Kerry Packer. I see a similarity to Kerry, though I never saw Kerry in Speedos. Cartoonists love to make fun of and exaggerate Julia Gillard’s nose. Well they should have a field day with Abbott’s ears. He comes across as a bully, acting strong, but in fact weak. I know he was once a pugilist, so I don’t mean physically weak. He enters in marathons after all. He is weak on substance. His total lack of policies other than PPL and his disregard for all the wonderful things Labor has done over the past 3 years. His recalcitrant behaviour during the time that Labor nearly caught up to him in the polls was disturbing to say the least.

It beggars belief that MSM and the vocal Shock Jocks all say that Julia Gillard lied, J U L I A R placards and such, yet Tony Abbott is a self-proclaimed liar. So evidently it is fine to lie, if you say that you are lying, but not fine if you do not lie at all. That is basically what MSM says by default

Tony Abbott nearly became a priest. It makes you wonder just what they let into the Catholic Church. He is not a person of exemplary behaviour. But then neither are the paedophile priests. So there you have it. He may have grown up since his university days, however the bully is still in him. His rage is hardly contained as in his nodding episode. He has no care as to be doing good for the country as a whole. Everything he does and says is self-serving. He so badly wants to be in the Lodge he is willing to sell his arse for it. Now I wonder what went on at home the night that remark hit the airwaves and print. Or maybe Margie doesn’t read the papers or listen to the news. Can you imagine what it would be like married to that man. My goodness he’d need to be a lot different at home than he is on TV. I also can’t stand the way he walks like he has a huge pad between his legs. Some call it a swagger. Also dislike the ahs constantly. Sometimes 3 or 4 in one sentence.

It’s unfortunate that politics is about personalities and character. After all you do not want to elect someone of bad character to lead your country. People of bad character will no doubt have bad policies and that is what politics is all about. A person of good character will most likely have good policies and this Prime Minister has had many good policies. It is an amazing feat that she got anything passed at all when the Opposition said “no” to almost everything. My God, I have so much admiration for Julia Gillard, shouldering all those insults and just getting on with governing.

I hear people and MSM say all the time that Labor and Julia Gillard have not sold this or that well. And I say, well you only think that because you are tuned into the wrong stations. I hear Julia Gillard explaining things time and again, but still the morons don’t get it. They are not listening!
