The reason for a carbon tax


It certainly ain’t to save the planet.

The likes of Andrew Bolt would do well to take off the blinkers and have a look into things like Agenda 21 and the rest of it.

PS And if it’s the media you’re worried about, hey, when I was getting my journo degree, I had Greens member Drew Hutton (Traverston Dam) as a lecturer, Amnesty International-cum-federal Labor member Ross Daniels as a lecturer (he always looked into an empty spot in the lecture hall to acknowledge someone laughing at his jokes or agreeing with his point), hard leftist Gary MacLennan (they’re shit’s the same as our shit, whilst skinhead lesbians in the back corner cheered on) as a lecturer. Google those names.

You ain’t gonna get much perspective out of most MSM these days, guys.

PS

Julia’s carbon tax will put 90% of Australian families on welfare, forever dependent on the whims of the government.

And what will the government-of-the-day do in the future? Increase the carbon tax (already at $2000 per family per year and an increase is guaranteed), and then what? Reduce the compensation?

They will. They will have to. After all, they want us to reduce the way we (not them) live.

UPDATE

BROWN OFF: The nation straps itself in for the Greens party’s “joy ride of the future”

Christian Lyons:

In his remarks, Brown confirmed that he will side with Labor to ensure even if Abbott is elected PM with a mandate to rescind the carbon tax and scrap any carbon emissions trading system prior to its commencement that the new PM would not be able to pass his agenda.

This is gonna be a rough ride, folks.

Road trip!


Let’s do it!

How about the cattle farmers stick it back to that Gillard?

Click for full size.

Yes. We’re talking loading 100-odd trucks – or more – with now unsaleable cattle and sending them down to the lawns of Parliament House. There’s lush green grass there for them to feed on and even a water fountain for them to drink from (not to mention the sprinklers could be utilised).

Bugger all else they can do with that season’s worth of cattle now, is there?

It would send a clear message.

Spot has even included a handy directions guide (where the map comes from).

Why are free nations even part of the UN anymore?


A few commenters over at Blair’s Lair put it quite succinctly. Background: UN participants, including Iran :roll: declare Western powers terrorists. North Korea :roll: gains presidency of Conference of Disarmament.

They’re rubbing it in our face.

The Human Rights Council which includes countries such as Libya, the conferences on racism that are in fact anti-Semetic hate fests, the Women’s Rights Commitee which includies Iran, the IPCC etc The list is far too long for me to be bothered googling.

Now this. How anyone from the West can pretend the UN has any moral authority whatsoever is beyond me.

Australia should lead the world and get the hell out.

Indeed, the UN is a “vile, metastatic tumor on the throat of western civilization”.*

Deterrence


A man repeatedly rapes his 13 year old daughter – using a clipseal bag no less – and eventually gets caught.

The judge, Katie McGinness, says deterrence must be a key factor (I guess so, like, you know, any other child rapists out there might think twice).

Soooo… eight years? Ten? Life? Chemical castration?

Essentially about 280 days, or just over nine months, jail time.

Way to go, judge! Talk about deterrence!

Naturally, the perpetrator can’t be named, either.

North Korea breaking: a follow-up


Via JM Heinrichs, more evidence following on from yesterday’s post of what could be an imminent collapse of the corrupt, totalitarian North Korean regime.

In many parts of the country, the malnourished work force simply can’t, or won’t, work as hard. Government employees and security forces don’t get as much food as they used to, but they are still better fed than everyone else. This is a growing source of unrest, made worse by the growing corruption among officials. The differences are most stark when you compare the public mood of a decade ago to what it is today. Now, North Koreans talk back, and get away with it. Cops or secret police who try to beat or arrest people who openly criticize government action, can have a riot on their hands. The cops will often back off, and the people know it. What really accelerated this change in attitude was the disastrous currency reforms of late 2009. Many North Koreans lost their fear after that catastrophe, and there’s no going back.

Do read on. The Kim dynasty faction is weak, army morale is low, corruption is rife, they’re terrified of those Arab uprisings, more riot gear is being ordered, and it’s maybe a case of Russia snubbing Mr Ronery and/or he’s in bad health again.

Oh, bummer


The One may yet be the None come 2012, and Obama’s team is getting jittery.

It’s been a rough June for the White House. Instead of being able to run a campaign taking credit for economic improvement, President Obama will, according to the latest forecasts, be trying to win four more years amid a grim economy next year. The president’s reelection team, once hoping to run on a “Morning in America” theme now doesn’t have that luxury. No wonder, the president’s advisers over the past month have been making moves that suggest they’re awfully concerned about his prospects:

Indeed. Current polls have him at 42% against 46% for a Republican… any Republican.

UPDATE

Oh well. At least Obama still has the support of the US Communist Party.

One step closer to a nuclear Middle East


This doesn’t bode well for Bob Brown’s dreams of a one world government.

LONDON — Iran has carried out secret tests of ballistic missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload in breach of UN resolutions, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Wednesday.

Hague’s comments came a day after Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said they had fired 14 missiles in an exercise, one of them a medium-range weapon capable of striking Israel or US targets in the Gulf.

In a statement to lawmakers, Hague said: “Iran has also been carrying out covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches, including testing missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload in contravention of UN resolution 1929.”

He said Iran had also announced plans to triple its capacity to produce 20 percent enriched uranium, adding: “These are enrichment levels far greater than is needed for peaceful nuclear energy.

Yet another example of the UN not working on the side of Freedom, and why would it considering so many of its member states.

Meanwhile, the Saudi’s are saying that if Iran builds nukes, they will too. Sooo, it looks like the Saudis will have nukes some day. I wonder who’ll help them with the technology. This guy?

H/T

UPDATE

Rudd underlined Iran’s outstanding position in history and civilization, and called for continued consultations between the two countries.

Meanwhile, how about that season’s worth of cattle and a refugee policy?
