IT’S TIME TO SAY “NO!”

AUSTRALIAN electors no longer control what sort of a deal – or policies, or decisions, or leadership – we get from our Governments. That is reserved for members of the MPs Club, their parties, their vested interests and backers, and their back-room power brokers – not ‘the people’ they’re elected...

THE AGE PENSION IS NOT WELFARE!

THE BIG LIE: THE AGE PENSION IS NOT WELFARE! (EVEN THOUGH THE MAJOR PARTIES SAY IT IS) The major political parties insist that the age pension is welfare and must be reduced in its amount and availability. This is because governments have spent so much money and run up such huge...

DRUGS POLICY BRAINLESS

Absolutely brainless! How else can you describe a proposal by the Greens (and a section of the Labor Party) to decriminalise ICE and other illicit drugs? It makes you wonder if they’ve been indulging in too much of the ‘happy plant’ (or other mind-benders) themselves! It is one thing to...

AGE DISCRIMINATION MUST STOP!

Once again, discrimination against Australia’s ‘over 50’s’ has surfaced, nationally……and this discrimination has to stop!

TAXES, TAXES AND MORE TAXES!

A 50% hike in the national GST (to 15 %)…. higher tax on everyone’s superannuation savings…. increased fuel excise to offset lower oil and petrol prices; that’s government in Australia in 2016!

DON’T GO THE USA WAY!

GUN LAWS.    Twenty years ago this year, Australians were horrified by our worst shooting massacre when 35 people died and another 23 were wounded at Port Arthur in Tasmania, by sole gunman Martin Bryant.
