Ipswich on the move


Thankfully westwards, not eastwards.

With any luck…


We’ll be able to celebrate this Friday’s Party Music with 100,000 hits.

Not far off…

Blog Stats

99,423 hits

Sure, nowhere near the BIG dogs’ blogs, but heck, I’ll take it.

:-)

No worries, if it gets to Friday afternoon and it’s looking a bit iffy, just help a bloke out and guilt trip Tim for a bone.

Alternatively, go to an internet cafe and bring the site up on every computer in there or when your co-worker goes to the bathroom/out to lunch…

You know what to do people.

In return?

A promise not to post a Charlie Sheen youtube meltdown clip and/or that pic of Gillard and Obama canoodling.

UPDATE

Reading that over again, phwaaar, that’s pretty harsh.

Ahem.

100,000 hits? That’s you guys. So whenever it comes, thank you.*

*But by Friday would be extra swoit.

On QANTAS CEO Alan Joyce


I know I’m just repeating talking points by the Hate Media, but they are points well worth repeating.

The treatment QANTAS CEO Alan Joyce received over the weekend by the Senate hearing was utterly atrocious.

Here’s a man – of only a few in the room – who had the guts to, in the long run, actually try and save the jobs of thousands of QANTAS workers.

Simply put, the months of industrial action could not go on indefinitely, the airline would have gone bankrupt, and the CEO took the only feasible action possible under a “Fair” Work Act that should have acted earlier, and even could have been used by a government seemingly intent to rip the guts out of Australia by any (and many) means possible.

Bob Brown acted like a snake, a schoolyard bully and Doug Cameron was almost just as bad, but perhaps with more naivety and less slipperiness.

It has taken a while to sink in, but this makes me so mad.

Where was the Senate – the stupendously hostile – Senate inquiry into pink batts, the BER, the NBN, the live cattle trade, the hundreds of dead boat people, the child bride import trade?

This government is rotten to its core, propped up by leeches, fake snakeoil salesmen such as Tim Flannery and Tony Windsor.

More than disgusted, I am ashamed that our such great system has been raped by such parasites.

Go to that rally at Parliament House on Nov. 17 if you can in any way possible make it.

TBH, this government is beyond lucky the crowd there will “only” be holding signs and shooting pictures.

Next No Carbon Tax Rally Midday Thursday Nov. 17


It will be held outside Parliament House in Canberra to coincide with Obama’s visit.

Sure, it’s a Thursday and the Bills have been passed, but if you can make it, the message could well gain an international audience.

Details here. Coaches will be organised, and various speakers will be in attendance.

No special rape-proof tents will be there however.

Thanks to Mags for the heads up.

This isn’t going to end well


A look into the inner workings of the OWS movement.

Ed Morrissey:

Last month, I wrote that the Occupy Wall Street organization looked like a child from a marriage between Animal Farm and Animal House. In an insider account written by an Occupier alarmed at the hijacking of the movement — and its funding — from the OWS “General Assembly,” it’s clear that the analogy didn’t go quite far enough. It’s Animal Farm meets Animal House, all right, but with Niedermeyer running the Deltas.

That Insider account by Fritz tucker:

It’s all about who gets to control the money, and lo and behold, it’s even less than 1% of the people involved in the movement.

How… ironic.

But back to Ed:

What a great system OWS has designed … for people who want to seize control of the movement and the funds. It looks like this movement has its own 1% that want to dictate to the 99% how to live their lives. Frankly, I think the 99% have a better chance in the system we have than in the neo-Stalinist model they’re building in Zuccotti Park, and we have a century of experience on our side in that argument.

OWS rape shelters a necessity: where’s the MSM?


Particularly disturbing, is that many “Occupyers” aren’t even reporting rapes and sexual assualt. And whilst the MSM kind of is, the reporting is kept to a minimum.

Allahpundit:

Let it sink in: Their protests now need rape shelters. This is actually happening. And New York City lets it go on.

That above link has a Daily Caller video of these “peaceful” protesters outside the Washington meeting of the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

A reporter, Michelle Field covered the protesters that night. She was surrounded and harrassed for hours with calls of “F— Michelle Fields!” being yelled at one stage, interviews she tried to conduct (to, er, let them have their say), were repeatedly censored and a 78 year old woman was knocked to ground, her blood spilled.

John Nolte:

One of the secret weapons the corrupt mainstream media uses in their never-ending quest to Palace Guard for the left is context. For example, when it came to the Tea Party, the MSM was notorious for amplifying a single incident (that was usually a lie) and using it to attempt to smear and define an entire movement. This is what you do when you want to quickly take out a political enemy.

The MSM’s contextual game changes, however, when their desire is to strengthen a movement and give it credibility and room to grow. By dutifully reporting individual incidents but not reporting on the growing scope and size of Occupy Wall Street lawlessness, the MSM is willfully covering up the violence, vandalism, and anti-Semitism that truly does define this movement.

Nolte has also compiled a list of 81 (and counting) various offences from Occupy protests ranging from public defecation, needles, rapes, gang rapes and theft.

Meanwhile, as police resources are stretched, shootings have gone up 154% in NY.

There’s even an unconfirmed report of a death, probably from drug overdose.

Yet remember when the media jumped up and down about the Tea Party? And they hadn’t (and haven’t) even committed any offences (or at best, very few) apart from holding up some signs.

That this collective of shouty losers, drug addicts, rapists and generally people who can’t even take a dump properly claims it represents 99% of humanity is a sick joke.

No Obama. There is no equivilence between the OWS mob and the Tea Party movement.

Wow, didn’t see that one coming


Treasurer of the Year Wayne Swan might not be able to get the budget back in surplus by next year after all.

In other surprising news, it has been revealed that Osama bin Laden was a terrorist, and that only Americans think the name “World Series” is an apt title for a competion played exclusively in North America.
