A tax is a tax! Don't treat us like idiots please!

Surely a time will come when we will see a Prime minister admit that a tax he is about to bring in is indeed a tax. If it quacks like a duck and waddles like a duck it is a duck.

Why do politicians find it it impossible to tell the truth, I'm sure that many of us would be pleasantly surprised if the Prime Minister Tony Abbott just admitted that his proposed tax levy is a broken promise because the present state of the economy called for some sort of action.
No his argument revolves around the fact that this is not a real tax, why lie, its a tax.
I personally am not against this tax, and it is a tax for christ sake why not say it is.

Then we have the gold plated parental leave scheme which no one in Australia agrees with, not even his own party members. he sold us an election sweetner that he can't afford.
This scheme is over generous to a fault and even if it is toned down to a maximum of $100,000 it is still a scheme we cannot afford. Surely if he was being honest, he would be telling us that it is not affordable at the present time and will be actioned when and if the nation can afford it.
Truth isn't dirty word.

We all know that all promises made at an election are rarely upheld, what with black holes and other surprises that we are always told about after an election.

We can all judge policies by our own political leaning however the one thing we all have in common, we hate lies, particularly the people who treat us the voters with contempt, we are not an uneducated electorate we know when people are bending the truth and we'll make those same people pay at the next election.

Israel, is it an "apartheid state"

Israel risks becoming an "apartheid state" if US-sponsored efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement fail.
The US is showing its deep frustration over the almost certain collapse of the current nine-month round of peace talks they are blaming both sides for the lack of progress and said failure could lead to a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens.
A change in leadership in either Israeli or Palestinian might create more favourable conditions for peace and the final, long-delayed agreement on the shape of a Palestinian state.
Naturaly the Israely lobby caused a public storm around such remarks, even though most observers agree that the current Israely leadership is not interested in a peace agreement of any kind.
As for "apartheid state", it is true, Israel is running a virtual apartheid state in Palestine and no one can deny it, it's fact.
For a people with Israel's history it is hard to believe they would do such a thing, they have created a ghetto and the world has stood by and let it happen. You have on one side a group that does not recognize Israel and on the other side a group that does not recognize Palestine.
I'm sure that many of Israel's citizens do not like what they see and are not party to it.
The situation in Palestine is complicated but with good will it can be overcome.

Australians be aware. You can be spied on by the RSPCA and many others

We live in a world where government agencies could almost instantaneously track down journalists’ sources or for that matter an blogger's sources, weather there are the public interest considerations or not. What a scary thought, it's already happening..
The Telecommunications Interception and Access Act 1979 is so broad and poses very low limitations on state and federal government agencies want to do, it is a remarkably easy feat for governments to track down a journalist's sources, and take action against them.
In the event of a serious leak of government information, an agency - The Treasury, The Attorney General’s department, even The Immigration department can apply to a senior officer within their own department to access the journalist’s telecommunications.
They can find out who they called or emailed, the time they contacted them and their location.
Even if they have used encryption, it's a relatively simple task to track down the source. 
It does not require a warrant from a judge, and is merely approved by a senior officer from the applicants own agency, and then sent straight along to the mobile phone or internet provider. Accessing this type of data is easy. 
And it’s not just police or intelligences agencies that can request this type of data; almost any agency, including local councils and even the RSPCA, are able to access metadata without a warrant.

I don't want my kids sitting next to any man on a plane


I don't want my kids sitting next to any man on a plane. This is now a common request by mothers who have children flying alone.

Have we gone overboard with the fear of molestation, is the commission into child abuse causing us to become paranoid.
Our attitude is forcing airlines to take these feeling into account.

A spokeswoman for Qantas says the airline is seeing more and more unaccompanied minors travelling, especially during school holidays.

In 2012, flight crew forced a male nurse to swap seats with a female passenger, because he was sitting next to an unrelated girl travelling on her own.

"It seemed I had this sign I couldn't see above my head that said 'child molester'," he said later.

The airline defends its policy, which still states: "Unaccompanied minors are allocated seats next to adult female customers. Where possible, Qantas aims to seat children near crew areas or next to an empty seat.

This policy reflects parents' concerns and the need to maximise the child's safety and well-being."says Quantas.

The NSW Commissioner for Children and Young People Gillian Calvert says: "In the absence of any other test, it's one way in which the airline can reduce the risk of children travelling alone."

I'm sorry ladies but I think this is over the top, does this mean that a man travelling with his son is suspect and will be moved.Fact:--More child molestation occurs by relatives.

How many children have been molested on flights in Australia? Do we know, are there statistics, no I didn't think so.

Are we all going nuts on this issue altogether?

Sorry son we can't fly together

Trade in Services Agreement (Tisa) should be made public. Australia could be shafted by this agreement.


There are serious concerns from a range of groups that the proposed pact will have a profound effect on the provision of public services.
Negotiations on the Tisa resume in Geneva on Monday.
The 23 parties to the agreement are Australia, Canada, Chile, Chinese Taipei, Colombia, Costa Rica, the European Union (representing its 28 member states), Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Liechtenstein, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the Republic of Korea, Switzerland, Turkey and the United States. 
A report, released at the Australian embassy in Geneva on Monday, contends that:-- "The Trade in Services Agreement(Tisa) is “among an alarming new wave of trade and investment agreements founded on legally binding powers that institutionalise the rights of investors and prohibit government actions in a wide range of areas only incidentally related to trade”.
This agreement will prevent governments from returning public services to public hands when privatisations fail
It will restrict domestic regulations on worker safety, will limit environmental regulations and will affect consumer protections
Stop our regulatory authorities from taking action in areas such as licensing of health care facilities, power plants, waste disposal and university and school accreditation.
Will our present government sign such an agreement.
Yes, unless we let them know our opinion on such agreements as these they'll sell everything off don't kid yourself. Once you sell your sole to this particular devil you can't get it back

Defence personnel given ambiguous orders to stop the boats at any cost now take the blame for government.

The incursions into Indonesian waters
It's nothing to do with Scott Morrison?

Government washes hands at the expense of our Defence personnel who were obviously given ambiguous orders with the emphasis on stopping the boats at any cost.
Does anyone really believe the Navy officers and Customs officers involved in the incursions into Indonesian waters did so without some encouragement from Operation Sovereign Waters, of course they didn’t.
The officers involved have heard nothing but the slogan ‘Stop the boats’ from the Coalition for years so is it surprising that would want to prove that they could do anything they were ordered to do.
The government since coming into power have stressed their aim to all and sundry, it is the ‘Holy Grail” to the Coalition.
Government contracted personnel who man some of the Custom vessels could have also been over enthusiastic to please the government.
So who is now paying the price for the governments hysterical rhetoric, not the government, no you’ll never see a politician take the blame when they can pass the buck to someone who is not unable defend themselves.

Scott Morrison has shown us just how adept he is at avoiding anything that resembles the true story and he has placed Defence personnel in an untenable position deliberately to protect himself.

Money can buy an American Election. Land of the free is free if you have the money.

Money can buy an American election? Now it's a lot easier

The finance chairman of the Republican national committee, Ray Washburne, travelled to Chicago last Wednesday to solicit money from two big funders who had reached their donation limit for this election cycle.
While he was on the plane, the supreme court ruled that there would no longer be any limits. Washburne told the New York Times that when he landed and heard the news, he said: "Eureka".
He came back with promises of more cash from corporate America, we all know they really run politics in the US of A.
It's the American Way. Just as the constitution ostensibly requires that AK47s be available on demand, it was also apparently designed to open the sluicegates to money in politics, until the entire landscape is flooded with cash and cynicism and the border between what is unethical and what is legal is washed away. Is this what the funding fathers intended?
There are lots of areas of American society that could do with more money: preschools, infrastructure, mental health clinics, homeless shelters.
The one place it's not needed is in politics.
Even in this most polarised of moments, this is one of the few things on which most Americans agree. Indeed, support for limits on campaign donations is high among all income and education levels, party allegiances and political philosophies, and has remained consistent over the last five years.

Smell of coverup by Australian government.PNG request for police help on Manus Island rejected,why?

The government obviously does not want to know exactly what happened on Manus or does not want to be seen as being involved in the investigation in any way.

They wonder why Australians are getting pissed of with this secrecy, it makes total a joke of the PM's statement about open government

PNG request for police help on Manus Island denied:
