100 cops in Melbourne terror raids!

OMG! Now the terrorists are in Melbourne and not Sydney! Fuck! Australia is being made war with by terrorists! Fuck! Bomb ISIS now FFS and stop this terrible terror! 

Look! A terror bust map! OMG they're everywhere down there! Fuck!



And look! A terrorist being arrested! OMG! Fuck! How could these evil people hate us? Just for who we are? Oh the outrage! He must have been about to behead someone! Terror! Terror!



OK, now that the mockery is out of the way....... :)

Oh hang on.......... *takes Valium*

Hmmmmmmm....... So 100 police, it was all over the MSM this morning, great big terror raids in Melbourne. One man arrested. That number again, one. That one man was not about to behead anyone. The police allege that he was supplying money to a known terrorist organisation. Oh really?

I have no idea who this man is, have never met the guy, never heard of him before in my life. I have no reason to defend him apart from a demand for fairness. In that context I would have to remind myself of my own experience of the police in Australia, and indeed in the gay community in recent times over the Mardi-Gras. In all cases the police have trumped up the charges, exaggerated, colluded with each other, eventually  reversed in a fair court of law. I personally don't believe much of what comes out of their mouths. I see no reason to look at this situation differently than my own experiences. 

Whether this bloke is guilty of what the police allege is to be decided in a court of law, not by the fuckin Lieberal media. In fact, let's just take a look at the police comments themselves about the raids and arrest. It looks to me that they're seriously trying to tell the media to calm the fuck down and stop making shit up:
Today's counter-terrorism raids at seven locations across Melbourne were the culmination of an eight-month investigation based on information provided by the FBI. 

"I can confirm that a 23-year-old man from Seabrook will be charged with intentionally making funds available to a terrorist organisation, knowing that organisation was a terrorist organisation," 

"There is no information or intelligence to indicate that this man was involved in planning an attack. 

"Nor there are any known links to the 18-year-old man involved in last week's Endeavour Hills incident." 

Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton added that today's searches were conducted in a low key manner. 

"We didn't assess there being a significant community safety risk or significant risk to our officers," he said. 

Deputy commissioner Ashton also reinforced that today's raids were in relation to the funding of overseas terror activity. 

"We just continue to try to reassure the community to get on with their lives and keep doing their everyday business," Read more

"Teen Terror!" - Australian papers go bananas, really fuck up

May I present exhibit A, the papers screaming about a teenager who went into a police station with a small knife and was shot dead by the cops. Here is exhibit A:


Good god! Teenage terrorists in Australia! He looks so clean cut and nice, a perfect terrorist disguise! But there was more, as Australian newspapers went fuckin bananas about it (I think the cat's there for a bit of a breather from all the terror!). May I present exhibit B:


Terror! Terror! 

Only problem is, the bloke used in the pictures isn't the teen that went into the cop shop and got shot. It was some innocent young bloke. Now the family of this young bloke, and the young bloke himself, are terrorised and fear reprisals from the public. The family are planning to sue

WCFuckwits dummy spit at hate site :)

The confused dears are at it again. This time the WCFuckwits has entered the fray of the Export of Hate website, where all kinds of truthful things are said about them. Enraged at their outing, they've hit back with an all guns firing online petition, demanding people stop hating them. Seriously. The petition is here. It's had all of 169 signatures worldwide :)
Several individuals associated with the World Congress of Families including Larry Jacobs, Janice Crouse and Brian Brown were singled out by HRC in their report. The HRC says World Congress of Families is part of a “network of American extremists who are working tirelessly to undercut LGBT people around the world,” people who spread “venomous rhetoric, outrageous theories and discredited science.” The suggestion is made that people like me are OK with “systematic stigmatization, persecution and violence” and may even be fine with gays and lesbians being put to death. 

WCF readily and proudly pleads guilty to the “crime” of not supporting the HRC’s desire to redefine marriage. WCF has had the nerve to express that view not only here in America, but when invited to speak in other countries. Hence, in the distorted world of the HRC, I am an extremist and “export hate.” more
Good grief, it's like the US. Dropping bombs on other countries in an undeclared war, then wondering why they're hated :s

Welfare Bills now before the senate


This is it folks. Forget the Middle East. Forget the telly screaming TERROR! TERROR! Instead remember the Australia we have, and what these bills would do to our country if passed. It will no longer the the fair Australia that we've so often strived for through the decades. 

You can track the progress of the bill through the senate here: 
Social Services and Other Legislation Amendment (2014 Budget Measures No. 2) Bill 2014 

The bill, if passed:
- Making jobseekers under 30 go without income support for six months a year 
- Cuts to the indexation of pensions, including the aged and disability support pension, which will see people lose $80 per week in real terms within 10 years 
- Axing the Pensioner Education Supplement 
- Increasing the retirement age to 70 
- Cuts to FTB payments, including for single parents and low income families 
- Reassessing around 28,000 people with disability, with a view to dumping them onto Newstart  
You can ring your cross bench senator here.

Update:

Palmer reiterates, economy is in good shape and there will be no dasdardly welfare cuts.
Asked on Sunday whether he believed blocking a range of budget measures was stopping the government from delivering its promise to fix the budget, Mr Palmer said: “I’m reading the balance sheet and the fact of the matter is Australia’s got 12 per cent of its GDP as debt. The OECD average is 73 per cent. 

“We’re one of the 13 countries in the world with a AAA credit rating,” he told ABC News 24. 

“When Menzies was our PM, the ratio to debt was 40 per cent. We’ve never had is so good. Do we have to take $10 billion off the poorest people in society that can least afford it? I don’t think we do. We need to tell people the truth and we’re not in a budget crisis and this is a beat-up to get popular support for government, but it is not true.” 

“Certainly our position on budget issues have been very clear: we’re against the $7 Medicare co-payment; we’re against any change to education policy; and on the social security thing the government didn’t bring it on [in the Senate] because we wouldn’t vote for it. 

“We think the changes to the benefits for people under 30 [are] ­discriminatory and will lead to more crime or youth suicide and we won’t support them.” more

Industrial scale climate action needed

It was using the earths carbon on an industrial scale that's bought us to this planet wide climate emergency. It will take action on an industrial scale to fix it, if it's not already too late. Politicians in the hands of dirty energy producers is a political problem that must be fixed, possibly if we're to survive as a species.

 

Miners protest 457 visa rule changes - Perth

I had no idea unemployment was so bad over there in the places mentioned. With the downturn in mining at the moment and unemployed Australians unable to find work over there, the workers are enraged that the Abbott gov is relaxing the rules needed for companies to bring in foreign workers. These workers have been exploited in the past in Australia and used as cheap labour, whilst Australians can't get a look in.

A very good report about it from Perth:

$8billion a year unpaid tax - top earning Australian companies

Yes, whilst the Lieberals are screaming for me to do some heavy lifting for the country (sorry Tone I've had my own problems to deal with, like survival), the top earning companies in Australia are getting away with ripping off taxpayers to the tune of $8.4 billion a year:

The report finds: 
- An average effective tax rate of 23% – well below the corporate tax rate of 30% 

- 29% have an effective tax rate of 10% or less 

- 14% have an effective tax rate of 0% 

- The loss of an estimated $8.4 billion in annual revenue compared to the 30% tax rate 

- In 2013, 57% of ASX 200 companies disclosed subsidiaries in secrecy jurisdictions (tax havens) – but this could be much higher as reporting is not mandatory more
