Taxes We Didn't Have 100 Years Ago When We Were A Prosperous Country

At first I thought this was funny, then I realized the awful truth of it.
Be sure to read all the way to the end!

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he's fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think..

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He's good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he's laid.

When he's gone,
Do not relax,
It's time to apply
The inheritance tax.

And Now Julia Gillard Wants a Carbon Tax !
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mum stayed home to raise the kids.

How To Tell When The Prim Monster Is Lying!

Whenever She Opens Her Mouth

Here is a neat article on the carbon tax backflip by the Labor Party. It is reprinted WITHOUT the permission of Barnaby Joyce.

"Now that we’ve all picked our jaw up off the ground, because Ms Gillard and Mr Swan have precisely done what they said they wouldn’t do and are bringing in a carbon tax, we have to organise the fight to stop it.

Yes, we are going to have to go through all the arguments again and we will win again.
Let’s start from these. 

The people who couldn’t get fluffy stuff in the ceiling for the rats and mice to sleep on without setting fire to 190 houses; 

The people who decided to go on some manic building  spree in the backyard of every school, whether  the schools liked it or not and in many cases in  multiples of the cost of the true price on the structures;

These same people who thought they could reboot the global economy with the purchase of imported electronic goods with $900 cheques; the same people who have got you into $181billion in gross debt; 

Yet the same people again who  looked down the barrel of a camera to talk to the Australian people  and stated categorically they would never bring in a carbon tax in the term of their government; 

They are the people who are going to bring in the carbon tax because they have the quite evident expertise, despite all the history to the contrary ,to cool the planet from a room in Canberra. 

Not surprisingly, what they have changed is the temperature of people’s disposition. There is a palpable white fury from the deceit that people feel. People can hardly afford and in some cases not afford at all the power bills they currently have. They do not need any more motivation to use less power. They are totally focused on this because they can’t afford to pay for their current usage.

People understand that you either have cheap power or cheap wages. There is another alternative, no jobs and Australia’s manufacturing industry, or what’s left of it, is well and truly in the sights of this absurd decision of Ms Gillard. I look forward to AWU Secretary, Mr Howse, in his next Mussolini impersonation behind the podium, to go into bat for these jobs, but I haven’t heard boo from him today.

In the background, literally and photographically, are Mr Windsor and Mr Oakeshott. Mr Oakeshott, well you can just make your own mind up about him, but Mr Windsor’s statement at the press conference is peculiar. He said, “and please don’t construe through my presence here that I will be actually supporting any scheme”. Well, Mr Windsor, what were you doing there? Did you get lost on the way to the toilet and just stumble across the Prime Minister doing her press conference and decide to stand in on it?

Please don’t tell me that we have to go through this teeth pulling agony as  you stand at the front of the political church in the big white fluffy dress saying ,” I don’t know how I got here and I don’t know whether I shall say I do. Don’t construe that this dress means I’m getting married to another Labor/ Green party decision.

I was not in the least bit surprised about the white fury I’m hearing in Sydney and how some of the illuminati misread that there would be such an overwhelming reaction against the announcement of the carbon tax. I am not surprised in the slightest by the almost monastic silence of Mr Bill Shorten as he sits back salivating on Ms Gillard and her Green cohorts happily mounting their own political pyre.

Global Panic As Green Sector Crashes And Burns

Here is the deal - Labor and The Greens are going to railroad the Australian people into a "Carbon Scheme" and then the whole kit and kaboodle goes up in smoke and, taxwise, we bail it out!
Dontcha luvit?

Wind Tirbine Failure Due To High Winds.

Nothing symbolises the warming alarmist more than the wind turbine, the supposed source of limitless carbon free (if you ignore manufacture, transportation, erection, and maintenance) electricty.

 As the whole AGW scam collapses there are little islands of Climate Religion left, Greenpeace and the WWF frontmen are trying business as usual; which these days is starting to look more like the band playing on the Titanic with every passing day.

In Australia we have the Labor Party and The Greens prostrating themselves at the altar of global warming whilst the rest of the world are leaving Green investment faster than rats leaving the sinking SS Warming Alarmist!

 With economists plainly joining an increasing number of scientists in global warming skepticism its little wonder there’s now a mass flight away from ‘renewables;’ such that both investors and governments are compelled to follow suit in the clearest indication yet that green energy won’t live up to its promises.

Australian Gun Control Facts


Protecting Your Right To Own Guns

A wise man learns from his mistakes, a smart man can learn from the mistakes of others.

  • Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2%
  • Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6%
  • Australia-wide, armed-robberies are up 44% (yes, FORTY-FOUR PERCENT)
  • In the state of Victoria, homicides-with-firearms are up 300%
  • Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in homicides-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
  • Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in armed-robbery-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
  • There has been a dramatic increase in breakins-and-assaults-of- the-elderly
  • At the time of the ban, the Prime Minister said "self-defense is not a reason for owning a firearm"
  • From 1910 to present, homicides in Australia had averaged about 1.8-per-100,000 or lower, a safe society by any standard.
  • The ban has destroyed Australia's standings in some international sport shooting competitions
  • The membership of the Australian Sports Shooting Association has risen to 112,000, a 200% increase, in response to the ban and as an attempt to organize against further controls, which are expected.
  • Australian politicians are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no improvement in "safety" has been observed after such monumental effort and expense was successfully expended in "ridding society of guns". Their response has been to "wait longer".
Australia has some of the toughest gun laws in the world but we still have these crimes committed by criminals who have no intention of handing in their guns if the Greens succeed in disarming all law abiding citizens in Australia.

Criminalize Guns = Only Criminals Have Guns!

Scientists: Sun's Approaching 'Grand Cooling" Assures New Ice Age !

'NASA and the ESA agree, and so does the Russian space agency, Roscosmos—the sun is headed for a Grand Solar Minimum and a Grand Cooling will commence. The aptly named Grand Cooling is exactly what it implies: the sun is going to cool. That cooling will also cool off the Earth. It will last from 30 to 50 years.

What exactly does global cooling mean? Well for one, Al Gore was sure wrong! The Earth isn't going to warm, it's going to get colder. Much colder. So cold a little or full-blown Ice Age will ensue. As a matter of fact, some scientists claim we're already in the early stages of an Ice Age.'

Maybe the Nobel Committee and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should ask Mr. Gore to return his awards.

Dutch Professor Cees de Jager, a prominent astronomer and solar expert, forcefully asserts that we the world is indeed entering for a long period of very low solar activity. The professor and his colleagues are certain Earth is heading for a "long Grand Minimum"—defined as either a Solar Wolf-Gleissberg or a Maunder Minimum—"not shorter than a century." His 2010 paper, "The forthcoming Grand Minimum of solar activity," outlined the extended period of time that the diminished solar radiation would affect the Earth.

The Maunder minimum lasted from 1645 to 1715. It was marked by a period of general cooling over the entire planet. The Minimum coincided with the coldest year of the Little Ice Age.

The Greens - Ban Guns!

When will gun abolition proponents realize that criminals don't really give a hang which laws are passed concerning the ownership of guns? 

Only decent law abiding citizens will obey gun control laws. 

How will that help lower crime?

Statements from the anti-gun lobby supporting the removal of weapons from law-abiding Australian citizens - most particularly the International Action Network on Small Arms and the Coalition for Gun Control - are emotive and completely without factual basis.

No reasonable person can confuse guns used by criminals as having any relationship to firearms owned by licensed, law-abiding sporting shooters. The nonsense dribbled by the anti-gun lobby is misinformation which unjustly and dishonestly scapegoats legitimately licensed shooting enthusiasts without benefit to the community.

Australians are killed in many ways. Indeed, some 2500 Australians kill themselves every year. The 400 or so Australians killed as a consequence of drink driving annually, the more than 500 who fall to their death each year, the hundreds who drown and the untold numbers who die through medical accident or malpractice are all important. But nothing gains a headline like the handful who are shot, because it seems the thousands who are killed by other means are somehow accepted.

Those who tug at our emotions about guns would have us believe that the murder of about 60 people each year by criminals using guns would miraculously stop if all guns owned by law abiding citizens were banned, but evidence worldwide makes it clear this is the stuff of fairytales.

What Country gave up a full scale invasion of Australia in the Second World War because "significant numbers of ordinary citizens had firearms and knew how to use them"?

The answer is JAPAN - the same Country whose leaders tried to disarm you via the United Nations! 

It would seem to make sense that a defensively strong country is one where substantial numbers of citizens own firearms.

US House of Representatives Kills IPCC Funding

 Fraudster At Centre Of Climate Scam
The Greens Will Shit In Their Pants Over This One!

The Musician and his green underlings are constantly quoting the IPCC as the next best thing to God - Sorry, as dyed in the wool socialist atheists, they don't believe in God, so the IPCC would be the greens very own climate God! The phones will run hot to George Soros, the international godfather of the green movement!

As reported by Australian Climate Madness: 

"Last night the U.S. House of Representatives agreed to cut off funding for the rest of 2011 for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."

I wonder when the Australian House of Representatives will grow the cajones to do the same - never I guess!
The report goes on:

My constituents should not have to continue to foot the bill for an organization to keep producing corrupt findings that can be used as justification to impose a massive new energy tax on every American,” said Representative Blaine Leutkemeyer (R-MO), the sponsor of the measure, in floor debate before the vote. Leutkemeyer said in a press release that his amendment, which passed 244 to 179 largely along partisan lines, represented “a victory for taxpayers.

Dr Roy Spencer points out a few home truths about why this happened:
The climate change deniers have no one but themselves to blame for last night’s vote.
I’m talking about those who deny NATURAL climate change. Like Al Gore, John Holdren, and everyone else who thinks climate change was only invented since they were born.
Politicians formed the IPCC over 20 years ago with an endgame in mind: to regulate CO2 emissions. I know, because I witnessed some of the behind-the-scenes planning. It is not a scientific organization. It was organized to use the government-funded scientific research establishment to achieve policy goals.
Now, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But when they are portrayed as representing unbiased science, that IS a bad thing. If anthropogenic global warming – and ocean ‘acidification’ (now there’s a biased and totally incorrect term) — ends up being largely a false alarm, those who have run the IPCC are out of a job. More on that later.
I don’t want to be misunderstood on this. IF we are destroying the planet with our fossil fuel burning, then something SHOULD be done about it.
But the climate science community has allowed itself to be used on this issue, and as a result, politicians, activists, and the media have successfully portrayed the biased science as settled.
They apparently do not realize that ‘settled science’ is an oxymoron.
The most vocal climate scientists defending the IPCC have lost their objectivity. Yes, they have what I consider to be a plausible theory. But they actively suppress evidence to the contrary, for instance attempts to study natural explanations for recent warming.
That’s one reason why the public was so outraged about the ClimateGate e-mails. ClimateGate doesn’t prove their science is wrong…but it does reveal their bias. Science progresses by investigating alternative explanations for things. Long ago, the IPCC all but abandoned that search."

Climate Change Scientists Call for Food Rationing to Reduce Carbon Emissions

Sounds Like A Greens Wetdream!

'Leading scientists have called for World War II-style rationing in First World countries to avert catastrophic global warming, in a series of papers published by the United Kingdom's Royal Society.

"The Second World War and the concept of rationing is something we need to seriously consider if we are to address the scale of the problem we face," said Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

The recommendation came after Anderson concluded that no other method could secure the decrease in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions needed to prevent temperatures from rising to dangerous levels.

Inbred Idiot Opens Mouth - Defends His Faith Against 'Deniers'.

If this feeble minded excuse for a man does become King of England then he will also become head of the Church Of England.

How will he reconcile this with the religion of global warming that he now prostrates himself at the altar of?

He has just called for a drastic reduction in the standard of living for the British people - all in the name of human caused global warming.

I bet his standard of living doesn't drop!

Here is the latest verbal garbage from Barmy Prince Charley - the man who bought his own train with taxpayers money and converted it to run on biofuel!

"Flanked by the panjandrums of our European government, the Prince of Wales once again held forth in Brussels last week on the favourite bee in his bonnet, global warming.

He bemused MEPs with a welter of dubious statistics, called for a drastic reduction in our economic standard of living and ended with a swipe at those heretics of our time, the “climate change sceptics” who are corroding public debate by daring to “deny the vast body of scientific opinion that shows beyond any reasonable doubt that global warming has been exacerbated by human industrialised activity”.

As defender of the faith, of course, the Prince did not need any proof for such a dogmatic assertion. But whether it is wise for him still to be showing such religious attachment to this particular belief system, just when it is rapidly falling apart, is questionable"

This moron also has some pretty devious plans in place and up and running for Australia through the WWF.

Swiss Say 'No' to Gun Control Vote

Swiss voters have thrown out an initiative to prohibit the possession of firearms at homes in a nationwide referendum that sought to curb gun violence in the country.

Final results showed that 20 out of 26 cantons were against while 56.3 percent of the population rejected the initiative, AFP reported on Sunday.

The proposal was introduced by an alliance of non-governmental groups and center-left parties in order to have rifles stored in armories instead of keeping them at residential areas.

In order for the referendum to be passed both a majority of districts and a majority of people should have voted in favor of the move.

The results have dashed hopes of anti-gun campaigners, including women, doctors and police officers, who argue that the easy availability of arms have largely contributed to the high rates of domestic gun violence, suicides and homicide in the Alpine country.

Official figures show that between 1.2 million and 4.5 million rifles are estimated to be in circulation in Switzerland, putting the country behind only the US and Yemen in guns per capita.

The government has voiced opposition to the initiative, arguing that the "current legislation assures adequate and sufficient protection of the population against the abusive use of weapons."

Meanwhile, Swiss Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga stated that in spite of the failure of the proposal to stiffen the gun control, Switzerland would remain a safe country.

UK Energy Minister Admits Wind Power May Never Break Even!

UK Energy Minister Charles Hendry told MPs governments had spent £2.2 billion supporting wind power over eight years - and it was impossible to predict when, or if, the energy source would prove profitable without grants.

In December last year dramatic plans to erect up to 20,000 wind turbines and put millions of electric cars on the roads were unveiled by the British Government’s climate experts.

The costs of switching to green power and transport would be covered by new environmental taxes and higher fuel bills.

Experts say the plans will cost around  £30billion a year.

Read more:

Meanwhile in Australia more than $5.5 billion of taxpayers money has been spent by federal governments during the past decade on climate change programs that are delivering only small reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
Wind power is intermittent, unreliable and hard to predict. 

To cover the total loss of power when the wind drops or blows too hard, every wind farm needs a conventional back-up power station (commonly gas-fired) with capacity of twice the design capacity of the wind farm to even out the sudden fluctuations in the electricity grid. This adds to the capital and operating costs and increases the instability of the network.

Why bother with the wind farm – just build the backup and achieve lower costs and better reliability?

There is no justification for continuing the complex network of state and federal subsidies, mandates and tax breaks that currently underpin construction of wind farms in Australia. If wind power is sustainable it will be developed without these financial crutches.

Wind power should compete on an equal basis with all other electricity generation options.

What The Australian Greens Have In Store For Us!

Obama Energy Secretary Promises 'Massive' Coal Plant Closures

Bayswater Power Station In The Sights Of The Greens For Closure

Obama Energy Secretary Steven Chu has launched the next phase of the White House’s publicly stated agenda to bankrupt the coal industry via EPA regulations after announcing the prospect of “massive” coal plant closures even as Texas and other states suffer rolling blackouts as a result of maxed-out power plants that cannot cope with demand.

The Obama administration’s strict enforcement of draconian EPA regulations has led to new clean-burning coal-fired plants being mothballed and other existing ones being shut down, which has in turn led to Texas and other states becoming energy-dependent, leading to shortages and blackouts exacerbated by freezing temperatures.

Despite White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer’s brazen lie in claiming that the blackouts are solely a result of “mechanical failures,” the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the agency that oversees the state’s power, confirmed this morning that the threat of blackouts was ongoing as a result of a “maxed out grid”.

This “maxed out grid” is a consequence of federally enforced EPA restrictions that have led to the delay, mothballing and closing down of coal-fired plants. In Texas, approval for the much-needed Las Brisas Energy Center has been delayed for 3 years as a result of EPA meddling in Texas’ energy policy.

A federal court ruling last month gave the EPA permission to proceed with greenhouse gas regulation in Texas, temporarily superseding Texas’ non-compliance with the new regulations which came into force on January 2. The White House’s claim that EPA regulations are not currently affecting Texas is a complete fabrication.

Now White House Energy Secretary Steven Chu has made it clear that “massive” amounts of coal-fired plants in the United States will be closed down over the next five to eight years.

It appears the Greens want us all back living in caves - except of course for them!

"Hey, Bob Brown from The Greens, Tell Me How Your Carbon Tax Will Stop This?"

Public transport during the recent US blizzard!

Global Warming Freezes America!

Sounds like a press release from Bob "The Musician" Brown, leader of the Australian Greens after blaming mining companies for the Queensland floods.

  • Snow and ice predicted across much of the US for Saturday
  •  At least 12 dead as most recent storm causes chaos in 30 US states
  • Temperatures plunge to 30 below as last storm passes
  • Hundreds of thousands of people without power
  • 13,000 flights already cancelled this week with more chaos expected as airports fight to open
  • Storm was 'worst in 50 years'
As the deadly two-day blizzard finally passes, huge swathes of America must now brace for more snow and ice over the next three days as a storm brewing in the South and Texas is projected to move north by Saturday, dumping even more snow on top of already record-setting accumulation totals.

Snow is expected to fall over parts of Texas with rain over Louisiana, which will turn to snow over the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. A separate snowstorm will blow over much of the West, just as Chicago is recovering from its most damaging snowstorm in decades.

This week's storm was so catastrophic that buildings were crushed under the weight of the ice and snow.

Newsweek Goes Insane, Says Antioxidants Bad for Health

'Just when you think you've heard it all, a major mainstream media source goes off the deep end and says that natural antioxidants can kill you. 

Yes, you heard that right. 

Citing a few sketchy studies that contradict the bulk of published research on the subject, a report in Newsweek, presumably intended to be taken seriously, actually alleges that the antioxidants found naturally in fruits, vegetables, and various superfoods, are dangerous to your health. And you just might want to stop taking them, the report humorously states.'

Half Northern Hemisphere Covered in Ice & Snow.

At first glance it looks like a graphic from a Discovery Channel programme about a distant ice age. But this astonishing picture shows the world as it is today - with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.

The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America was in the grip of a severe winter storm.

The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.

That Antarctica, the Arctic, Greenland and the frozen wastes of Siberia are covered in white comes as no surprise. But it is the extent to which the line dips down over the Northern Hemisphere that is so remarkable about the image!

The shroud of white stretches down from Alaska and sweeps through the Midwest and along to the Eastern seaboard. The bitter cold has reached as far as Texas and northern Mexico where in Ciudad Juarez temperatures today were expected to dip to minus 15C.

Hundreds of drivers on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, which was blasted by 20 inches of snow, abandoned their cars in an almost apocalyptic scene as authorities closed the road.

Now we await the warmists as they thrash about trying to find a "scientist" who, when given enough money, will contrive evidence to prove this weather is caused by us humans and our global warming!

The Australian Greens and their counterparts in Britain are amazingly quiet about the extreme weather conditions in the Northern Hemisphere as it doesn't really suit their agenda of taking us back to the stone age.

Global Warming Causes Record Snowfalls in US - Gore Bullshits! Again.

Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire - Gotta be Global Warming!

'The record-setting snow and cold afflicting much of the US in recent weeks doesn’t seem to jibe with Al Gore’s dire warnings about global warming.

But Gore has an explanation for what’s causing the wintry conditions: global warming.

The former Vice President on Monday responded to Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly’s on-air question last week: “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” O’Reilly then said he needed to call Gore.

“I appreciate the question,” Gore wrote on his website.

“As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming".'

Gores hand then slipped off his penis and transmission ceased!

Just joking! I think!

All this from a two time looser who is set to make billions from a carbon tax fraud scheme that the Labor Government in cahoots with the Greens in Australia cannot wait to get us lumbered with.

Greens Blame Cyclone Yasi On Climate Change

The Watermelon Pink On The Inside-Ban Fishing-Ban Shooting Party

Here is a great article from Australian Climate Madness

"Does anyone really give a flying f**k what the Greens think any more? Why yes, the ABC does, which reports their every petulant outburst with wholly undue reverence.

It was only a matter of time before the eco-totalitarians in the Greens, desperate to advance their Marxist agenda by any means possible, blamed the (yet to arrive) Cyclone Yasi on climate change. Tell me Senator Milne, where is your evidence for that ludicrous statement? Oh, yeah, I remember, we don't need evidence, do we, just desperate appeals to ignorance and emotion.

I run these stories to demonstrate to my readers how irrelevant the Greens are in modern politics. I know it's painful, but it has to be done.
The Australian Greens say Tropical Cyclone Yasi is a "tragedy of climate change".
The party was heavily criticised after it linked the Queensland floods to climate change and blamed coal miners.
Greens deputy leader Christine Milne says the cyclone is another example of why it is important to cut carbon pollution.
"This is a tragedy, but it is a tragedy of climate change," she said.
"The scientists have been saying that we are going to experience more extreme weather events, that their intensity is going to increase, their frequency." (source)
To think that people have been stupid enough to vote these idiots into the balance of power in the Senate beggars belief."

Now let us have a look at the blue vein trumpet player that purports to lead the watermelons in Oz.

"Never let a good crisis go to waste" could have been written for Bob Brown. No depths are too low for the Greens' leader, exposing his "party" as a bunch of hysterical ecotards, more concerned with using the Queensland floods to push their extremist environmental agenda than for the suffering of so many people as a result of this tragedy. Fortunately, he has been criticised for his comments by all sides:
GREENS leader Bob Brown is facing mounting condemnation after calling on coal companies to foot the bill for the Queensland flood recovery.
Senator Brown said coal companies, as major climate change contributors, should pay a 40 per cent resources super profits tax to pay for the clean-up.
Minerals Council of Australia deputy chief Brendan Pearson accused Senator Brown of “rank opportunism”, unworthy of a serious political leader.
And Australian Coal Association director Ralph Hillman said domestically-mined coal made a tiny contribution to global carbon emissions.
Liberal Senator Eric Abetz said the Greens leader should apologise for his “insensitive” comments.
“Senator Brown's comments expose the Greens and his leadership as shallow and cynical; willing to peddle political propaganda in the face of a natural disaster,” Senator Abetz said. (source)
The Greens are hardly worthy of the title "political party", just a rag-tag bunch of Marxist environmental fruitcakes.
