Liar, Liar, Gillard and Combet both on Fire

Via the Herald Sun and Andrew Bolt
Both Julia Gillard and Greg Combet lied outright at the last election.

12 August 2010 - Swan on the ABC:

Treasurer Wayne Swan has promised a re-elected Labor government will not put a tax on carbon during its next term of office.

Opposition treasury spokesman Joe Hockey pressed Mr Swan on the issue on Thursday, demanding to know whether Australia would be hit with a carbon tax in the next three years under Labor.

”We have made our position very clear, we have ruled it out,” the treasurer told ABC Television


18 August 2010 - Swan on Meet The Press:

"What we rejected is this hysterical allegation that somehow we are moving towards a carbon tax."


16 August 2010 - Gillard on Channel 10:

"There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead."


20 August 2010 - Gillard in The Australian.

"I rule out a carbon tax."

Now I'm waiting to see the Canberra Press Gallery and 'The Age' print numerous articles condemning Gillard and the government for their Lies, somehow I think I'll be waiting some considerable time.

These Lying, Duplicitous, Fools are going to take a large amount of our money and waste it just to keep Bob Brown and his cohort of Idiots happy.

Look forward to your standard of living being considerably reduced over the next few years and it will stay reduced as even if the next government repeals the Tax we will have lost several years of growth.

And for What? This Tax will make not a jot of difference to the temperature anywhere. If the entire population of Australia committed suicide tomorrow and the country sank under the sea it would not have any effect on world temperatures, none.

I just don't understand why this isn't front page news. I weep for my children.

How Did Afghanastan go from a modernising country to a Feral Backwater

Once upon a time Afghanistan had Universities, Shops, Industry and Infrastructure. Now it is backward and oppressive. The Coalition is trying to help but they have to undo 30 years of war and degradation.

Have a look at this site - http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2010/05/27/once_upon_a_time_in_afghanistan?page=0,0

It shows what was and gives an idea of what could have been. Why did it all go wrong?

Tim Flannery - Duplicitous Prick

Re: my last post, the following exchange took place on a Lateline.

TIM FLANNERY: “Any price on carbon will come with a cost.”

TONY JONES: “The cost being increased electricity prices for ordinary folk.”

TIM FLANNERY: “That’s right.”

So Flannery who is getting $180,000 a year for a three day week, does understand that ordinary Australians will be paying more for everything. He benefits, you don't.

See Tim Blair for a full rundown on Flannerys duplicity.

Get Ready for Massive Increases in the Cost of Electricity

The Gillard Labor Government, supposedly the champion of the unions and the working classes is about to strike a massive blow on the standard of living enjoyed by ordinary Australians. They are going to impose a carbon tax in July 2012

You reckon that your power bills have gone up a lot in the past couple of years, well that's just the start. Don't forget that nearly everything buy has used electricity in its manufacturing process. Every shop uses electricity, nearly everything uses electricity. Now when every factory, shop and school etc has big increases in their costs they have to pass it on.

So not only will your own use of power cost more, nearly everything you buy will cost more. For What? To please a small group of self indulgent people who wish to lower the standard of your living. This carbon tax will not make a scrap of difference to Australia's emissions. It is possible that some marginal manufacturing operations could close here and move offshore, less jobs but the greens don't care.

All this is to please inner city, childless, wealthy people who vote green because they think it means they care. All it means is that they are too stupid to realise the end result of their vote. They don't care if pensioners stop using their airconditioning, they don't care if single parents have their electricity disconnected, all they care about is their feelings.

Anyone who votes green and has an average or more IQ is at the bottom of things is either (a) Really Dumb (b) Just doesn't care about others or (c) Is a little Hitler who wants to impose their idea of how one should live on other people.

YOU CAN'T HAVE A TAX ON CARBON AND NOT HAVE POWER PRICES INCREASE!! IT JUST CANNOT HAPPEN!!!

What's Your Adelaide Name?

Via Tim Blair

Everyone can have an Adelaide name.
Perhaps it could be the street your birth hospital is located in, the name of your first high school English teacher, plus the name of the cigarettes your grandfather smoked in the 1950s. Put them together and you have an Adelaide name.

Mine is Lonsdale Bowler-Craven.

What's Yours?
