Carbon Tax Madness, Part One

Jul 14, 2011

Julia’s big bad new tax has been announced and plenty of debate has already ensued. The verdict seems to be already in: her popularity continues to plunge madly, as does her party’s rating, and the polls show overwhelming disapproval of

Carbon Tax Madness, Part Two

Jul 14, 2011

It is not just Australian experts in economics who find this whole policy to be both counterproductive as well as bizarre. Consider what one group of international economists associated with the Hartwell Group have said about this. They claim that

Greens Terrorising Our Children

Jul 9, 2011

The Greens thrive on alarmist scenarios, hoping to terrorise people – even children – into giving up basic freedoms in the interests of supposedly saving planet earth. They have been doing this for decades now. Indeed, these Chicken Little activists

More Green Falsehoods and Mischief

Jul 8, 2011

It seems you can trust the Greens to play fast and loose with the truth, go soft on morality, and trifle with the facts. They are happy to do anything to push their radical agendas. Whether it is euthanasia, homosexuality,

Academics Declare War on Free Speech

Jun 30, 2011

Once upon a time universities were known as places of free enquiry, openness to various ideas, and above all, a disposition to free speech. If it was hard to get a hearing, one could usually get a platform to speak

More Green Foolishness and Hypocrisy

Jun 17, 2011

Three pieces in today’s Australian (one news item and two opinion pieces) nicely demonstrate what we are up against with the new green religion. All three show just how fuzzy the thinking can be, how cloudy the morality usually is,

Bob and Malcolm and John and Julia

May 31, 2011

OK, consider a brief exercise in a bit of cynicism here. But sometimes public figures really become irritating, so please indulge me as I let off a little steam for a few moments. (For those whose sensibilities cannot handle a

More Green Fraud and Hypocrisy

May 30, 2011

It is always a bit rich when Hollywood celebs who happen to be multimillionaires start lecturing us plebs about how we need to tighten our belts for the good of the planet. The new pro-carbon tax TV ads are a

More Carbon Queries

May 17, 2011

While the Gillard Government continues to slide in the polls and lose the respect of most Australians, she continues to push many of the moonbat causes which have contributed to her unpopularity. Her mindless push for a carbon tax is

Carbon Queries

May 2, 2011

Everyone is talking about carbon lately, but I suspect very few actually know much about it. Indeed, it is not just carbon, but a whole range of related issues that we all seem eager to discuss but without much solid

Greens: The Party of Death

Apr 28, 2011

Arguably the three most important things in the world are life, family and faith. Yet for some reason, it seems the Greens everywhere have declared war on all three. Whether it be the homosexual atheist Bob Brown in Australia, or

It Must be Easter

Apr 22, 2011

You can always tell when Easter rolls around – just keep an eye out for all the fruit loop commentary that passes for Easter reflections. Secularists and Christians alike come out in force, mangling the heart of the Christian message

More Green Moonbattery

Apr 13, 2011

Because radical environmentalism has now become a pseudo-religion, it has plenty of zealots who will crusade for their grandiose schemes. And because it is a counterfeit of biblical Christianity, the very thing which Christians cherish they tend to hate, and

Social Engineering, Ideology and Moonbattery

Apr 9, 2011

The more radical the social engineering agenda, the more bizarre and inane the ideological propaganda war becomes. History is rewritten, truth is bent out of shape, and nonsense becomes an art form. The incredible lengths these activists will go to

More Ugly Anti-Natalism

Apr 7, 2011

Big families always used to be seen as a good thing – even a blessing. But increasingly population controllers are telling us they are a bad thing – even a curse. And the voices in the West calling for radical

Carbon Tax Madness

Mar 1, 2011

Julia Gillard’s announcement of a carbon tax tells us at least three things about her: she does not know much about truth-telling; she does not know much about economics and business; and she does not know much about science. In
