If only those thoughts were coherent. The Age wants people who are poor and desperate to drown? The Age wants people with little to give it all to pirates? The Age wants people who are desperate and poor to miss out on a refugee placement? The Age wants people who are poor and desperate to live in cages? Maybe if the Age wants to give them a voice, it can listen to their opinion and report it.
Taken from a impartial view, without entrenched ideas about balance or result, the article is demented. Were we to source thirty thousand people in Sri Lanka, Pakistan or Afghanistan and drown over a thousand of them, and charge each of them over $10k, and then cage them we would expect to be called bad names .. regardless of our intentions. And then to turn to the poor and oppressed and say "Tough luck for now" while asserting that this is fairer than the Pacific Solution .. those words cannot be that sweet .. those arguments cannot be that compelling. Let us forget that conservatives back the Pacific Solution .. I think if we were to be as fair and just as we could be, we would follow the Pacific Solution. I despise the tribalism that refuses to hear good ideas because they weren't made by people we liked. - ed

Rooty Hill Redux

Miranda Devine – Sunday, March 03, 2013 (5:15pm)

THE last time Julia Gillard ventured out to Rooty Hill RSL, the locals had her for breakfast.
That was when she debated Tony Abbott before the last election, in a town hall style meeting organised by The Daily Telegraph.
“While you were deputy PM the media brought to the public’s attention certain policy failures such as the emissions trading scheme, the home insulation. What responsibility do you bear?”
And this: “What guarantees can you give me that any promises that you made [in health and education] are not going to be backflips later on and the services won’t be provided?”
And this: “We here in NSW have a had a long Labor government, in state government. How can we honestly trust you and your Labor government to keep your promises when you have broken so many promises in your first term, including dumping the ETS … and today you sneakily announce the Parramatta to Epping rail link after the next term”. 
There was more.

Revenge: only Rudd can save Swan

Andrew BoltMARCH032013(10:30am)

image
ReachTEL‘s poll for The Bolt Report has stunningly bad news for Treasurer Wayne Swan.
If an election were held now, he’d lose his seat:
image
The only thing that could save him is for Labor to be led by Kevin Rudd, the man he betrayed and tore down: 
image
Add that to the ReachTEL poll yesterday showing Labor under Gillard would lose four our of four Western Sydney seats with huge swings against it, but would at least save two if Rudd replaced Gillard.
I suspect Swan, who was doing better in earlier polls, is also paying a price for his personal failings as Treasurer - the dud mining tax and the broken promise of a surplus this year.
But the collapse in support for Gillard overwhelms everything, leaving her behind in what Labor last year was promoting as a crucial metric:

A former drug addict is not one to lecture on ending a “war on drugs”

Andrew BoltMARCH032013(5:28am)

One of the key arguments against decriminalising drugs is that what you tolerate you will get more of.
Give that, the front man of the new Drug Law Reform Australia is a poor choice of spokesman for one side of the debate and the right one for those of us arguing against: 
Greg Chipp, 57, said his party, Drug Law Reform Australia, was not pro-drugs, but would push for a debate on harm minimisation and for the decriminalisation and regulation of cannabis.
Yes, Chipp has recovered, but I’m not convinced by his argument:
Addicts would be treated as having a health problem.
Addicts don’t have a health problem when they first take drugs. They have a problem with the law, their lack of responsibility, their indifference to consequences.  And the messages we send as a community to such people could prove decisive in many cases.

Forgive him. He’s just 23 and a Labor MP’s son

Andrew BoltMARCH032013(5:21am)

The problem with the Internet is that it gives 23 year olds the chance to tell the world - unerasably - that they are still young and stupid:
Ben Hoenig, whose father Ron - a successful barrister - succeeded former premier Kristina Keneally as the state member for Heffron in August, has written a series of threatening posts on the social media website, interspersed with photos of he and his father standing alongside Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
Despite his father being voted into Macquarie St by one of the biggest Asian populations in NSW, the 23-year-old Mr Hoenig wrote on November 6: “You know your country is f***ed when you walk into macca and wonder if you just flew to china!”
In this case the damage done isn’t great. He’s the son of a Labor MP, so will be forgiven.

Yes, double chromosome and all that for the literal minded.

Omar Barghouti, a skilled propagandist for BDS wrote an op-ed in the NY Daily News. Uncharacteristically, but very effectively, the NY Daily News wrote a counter op-ed calling on Barghouti to check his facts and falsehoods. 
It is worth mentioning that Barghouti is a student at Tel Aviv University, yet calls for academic boycotts of Israeli universities!

Barghouti's lies are outlined here:

The PM speaking authoritatively on a subject she knows well..

Ms Gillard said the criminal networks were becoming far more complex.

"It means that they are moving a lot of money around and it means that their activities span the borders of any one state," she said.

"To track the criminals, you have got to track the money."

An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said: ''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?''
'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are"

The 20 invited international speakers (who are all Muslims) have been banned from countries such as the UK and Canada for promoting terrorism, or called for the annihilation of the Jews, endorsed violent jihad, villified gay people, made misogynist statements, promoted circumcision (i.e. genital mutilation) of girls, and advocated the execution of those who leave Islam.>

Gillard chose Rooty Hill where she kept none of her promises from her last visit. There is a reason for it. She campaigned there last time, and not in Blaxland, because last time Jason Clare was with her and not campaigning in Blaxland. Had he shown in Blaxland last time he might have been asked why it was he hadn't campaigned there, and given oxygen to his opponents. Now, it is likely that Clare doesn't want Gillard campaigning in his seat .. she is that bad. - ed

<... Here is another one for the record books.

Gillard is not just the first female prime minister of Australia but she can also possibly claim to be the first prime minister ever who has fornicated with more members of her back bench and union thugs than any other prime minister preceding her.

All these fuck buddy relationships ended amicably

I could just imagine Julia's parting words " Cop u later " :-)

As a shepherd boy, David could often be found playing on his harp and singing praises to the Lord. He gave weight to the Lord’s presence and we have seen time and again, how the Lord delivered David from his enemies. 

My friend, I encourage you to be like David. Start magnifying the Lord’s glory, His majesty and His love for you. Stop giving weight to your challenges and negative circumstances. As David says in Psalm 68:1, “Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered.” So start singing praises to the Lord and watch Him deliver you from all your troubles!

Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.”—1Sam 17:37

When faced with Goliath, the Philistine giant, the Bible tells us that all the men of Israel were terrified. So how is it that David, a young shepherd boy, could confront the giant fearlessly? 

Well, unlike the others, David wasn’t conscious of how huge Goliath was. Instead, he was conscious of how great God was, and God caused his giant to come tumbling down!

My friend, have the Davidic spirit when you face the “giants” in your life today! Whether they are giants of condemnation, sickness or debts, don’t focus on how big they are. Be conscious instead of how big your God is and how infinite His resources for you are!

Declare victory in spite of what is happening because Jesus has overcome all your giants. And before your very eyes, you will see them fall, one by one!
