Thousands of people in a controversial work for the dole scheme have been threatened with having their Centrelink payments cut off for eight weeks, leading to Opposition claims some "having to basically forage for existence"
THESE AUSTRALIANS SHOULD BE MADE TO WORK FOR THE DOLE
"The government would not make a decision on ending discrimination in marriage laws. They made us do it and have since formed a committee to fight for the rights of wedding retailers to turn customers away. One wonders how many of them actually want less business.
The government will not make a decision on Aboriginal recognition. They made our Indigenous People go through a lengthy and extensive consultation process to make recommendations and then threw them out without a second glance. They slashed over $500 million from Indigenous funding and then wondered why we aren’t closing the gap."Kaye Lee
ECONOMIES BATTERED BY THE WEATHERECONOMIES BATTERED BY MEN SUPPORTED BY NEWS CORP
Tukuitonga told the gathering the South Pacific countries, through climate change alone, had been taking massive losses to annual gross domestic product (GDP) – 20-30% or more -- due to the effects of extreme weather events, especially cyclones.
While they are among some of the world’s poorest in dollar terms, for a bad year like 2009-10, those countries would be losing overall some $10 billion.
More figures reeled off by Dr Tukuitonga set out the pattern of relentless bad news, against which he offered some patches of light in terms of actions being taken, or which might be taken, by governments and other interests.
An old old message from Bolt
To lose without even fighting is pathetic: Last year Jobs Minister Michaelia Cash said fighting the planned merger of the militant CFMEU and the Maritime Union of Australia was a "priority election priority. But it never put the move to a vote in the Senate, fearing defeat. And defeat it has now got. How is that a strategy?
A FESTIVAL FOR A MURDERERThe Melbourne Food and Wine Festival has since deleted all praise for the mass-murdering communist: "Not only is Che Guevara a celebrated South American revolutionist, but "che" is also a colloquial term in Argentina meaning friend. This year gather your friends for ... a five course culinary adventure through the countries Che visited. "
MEET CNN'S LATEST WITNESS AGAINST TRUMPCut and Paste crisply sums up the credibility of CNN and MSNBC's latest witness for damning Donald Trump. An excerpt: "Sam Nunberg on MSNBC, yesterday: 'Trump may have very well done something during the election. I don’t know what it is. I could be wrong, by the way.' Nunberg later on CNN: 'He didn’t do anything.' Later he discusses his meds.
It is good to hear a federal minister - Alan Tudge - today put arguments I've repeated for years: "Citizenship Minister Alan Tudge has warned that Australia’s successful multiculturalism model is at risk of following the failed European path of ethnic separatism." True, but why won't he say immigration is too high? Multiculturalism a con?
It is odd to hear a federal minister - Alan Tudge - today finally putting the arguments I've repeated for years, even if he shies from solutions: Bolt
Bolt has been doing it for years and proving himself an uneducated idiot for doing it. Australia is a Settler Country just 200 years in the making and Asian, not Europen which is culturally 1000's of years old. As are Canada, NZ, America and Israel, Of these Bolt highly admires the Cultural Fascism of Israel as do white nationalists and Nazis the world over at present. If Bolt demands need to diminish the separation of powers and enshrine Australia as a Christian nation like Israel what does that make him when the American Nazis want the same?
Meanwhile, he claims to be an agnostic so why Christian? It's not the religion of peace.
Because he thinks he's more Australian than anybody born here after him Indigenous in fact. How intelligent is that? Europe might be struggling but not with multiculturalism but because of the politics of its Colonial past. Australia is certainly not it wants to shed its Colonial past and bathe in the success of its multiculturalism. To say otherwise is to be the whinging exception who to say it after 59 years and continue to say should listen to the majority chorus of Australians yelling piss off if you want!
The Australian's John McCallum reviews Kill Climate Deniers: "The title is ironic, isn’t it? No one actually wants to kill climate deniers, right? Except …" Except McCallum seems not only to believe the cultish global warming scare but to entertain fancies of murdering heretics. We're hurtling back to the Dark Ages. More on The Bolt Report.
"We're hurtling back to the Dark Ages, now with a Climate Inquisition. How sad to see our civilisation crumbling, and to the cheers of those you'd expect to defend it."Bolt
This coming from the man who repeatedly declares Science to be just another Religion and Australia needs to be officially declared a Christian country and Western nation. The Inquisition was much the same and supported the drive of Islam and Jews out of Spain. Today the fascist right is doing much the same in EU and the Nazi's of America want to model themselves on Israel.
Bolt is the man who readily applauds this notion and the call for a Crusade to drive Islam from Australia over a period of time by making entry nigh on impossible for Muslims to pass any immigration tests. Wants Australia to be Western mono Culture in the middle of Asia. He says we are hurtling to the Inquisition and Dark Ages on what basis simply because we are a rainbow nation. Through his demand for assimilation and his anti-immigration stance along with Dutton's idea of selling visas to the rich, they have a fantasy that only their selected immigrants will come. It's never worked in the past as the wealthy and successful have absolutely no ambition to come and live here. All they are doing is flying false flags and dog whistling for something that won't happen. Our democracy will be diminished by their narrow focus.
The questioning of Muslims, Marriage Equality, Gender Equality, Safe Schools and Science is the Dark Ages, Turn on the light Bolt you are there living your dream turn on the lights
