Citizenship Test – PM tries to grab the populist vote

Earlier this month the Prime Minister decided to get out of his ‘smallest target possible’ mode and say something that might win him back some support. The issue was immigration and the PM decided to listen to some concerns from all those ‘people’ out there. Like the guy buying the lovely girl some drinks at the bar, while showing interest in your personality and insightful views, he’s actually after one thing and in this case, it’s your vote. Apparently Mark Textor has been re-evaluating his view that conservative voters don’t have anywhere else to go and don’t matter anyway and the PM decided to act. Continue reading

Now I must admit, there are some days when I wake up and just think to myself, ‘just how can I screw up my life today?’ We’ve all done it at one time or another, swim with sharks, default on a payment to the Mafia, apply for Married at First Sight. Yeah, everyone self-destructs from time to time but 14,000? After what we’ve all seen, did Kool-Aid make a comeback and I didn’t hear about it? Continue reading

18C and The Doctrine of Emotional Protectionism

Who gave you this authority?

Anytime authority is exercised over you a legitimate question to ask is, ‘who gave you this authority?’ As the discussion about 18C & D continues in Australia, a thought should come to mind whenever you turn your attention to the issue. When was this ever discussed at an election? When did my local MP ever bring this up in communication with me? Continue reading
