A Truly Compassionate Serve

A Truly Compassionate Serve

“COURTING WITH OBSCURITY” January 19, 2020 Dear Editor: Australian tennis greats Nick Kyrgios and Margaret Court might have two characteristics in common: a courtside manner, and the ability to serve…both on and off the court. However, the how and why they do so couldn’t be more different. One splashes truly vile abuse/insults/actions most of the […]

“Salvation Day” (instead of Australia Day) for Aborigines Should be Celebrated!

“Salvation Day” (instead of Australia Day) for Aborigines Should be Celebrated!

“INVASION DAY,” INDEED? January 17, 2020 Dear Editor, “Fix Constitution or we’ll throw it into the sea” roars one of Australia’s “most respected” Aborigines in Galarrawut Yunupingu! Well, now (and I suppose Aboriginal social commentator, etc. Stan “Glitterati Gladiator” Grant will now say whitefella Aussies scream “uppity blackfella” at Yunupingu just as they are at […]

“Glazed-over” Australian Greens and Hollywood “Glitterati Gladiators”!

“Glazed-over” Australian Greens and Hollywood “Glitterati Gladiators”!

“MOTHER NATURE’S CYCLES” January 12, 2020 Dear Editor, Strewth, here we go again! All the “Glazed-over” Greenies and their Hollywood-type “glitterati gladiator” fellow travellers are getting all aggravated over Australia’s bushfires as if they’ve got gumnuts in their undies again! I reckon global warming is, in all probability; a combination of a tiny bit man-made […]

Crowe and Blanchett…”Glitterati Gladiators”!

AMID “SMOKING RUINS” January 6, 2020 Dear Editor, Our CFA volunteer eldest granddaughter will soon be joining her CFA volunteer bushfire fighting man (who has already done one “Tour of Duty” fighting fires in NSW) at the fire front! So I’m cheesed off with the likes of movie-mega-millionaires “Carbon” Cate Blanchett (who bought a low-lying […]

What Will 2020 Bring?

What Will 2020 Bring?

“UNDER ATTACK” January 4, 2020 To the Editor: Conditioning and consistency are crucial keys to success in virtually every human endeavor.   And so it is today in America, where the very sacred unalienable rights our forebears sacrificed so much for are under constant attack, not only from without, but more disturbingly, from within.  Please take […]

Relax, Greta, by Getting a Greenland Suntan just as your Viking Forebears Did!

Relax, Greta, by Getting a Greenland Suntan just as your Viking Forebears Did!

AND THEN RUG UP FOR THE NEXT ICE AGE? January 1, 2020 Dear Editor, So, bushfires in Australia are earning the ire of Sweden’s 16-year-old MmGW (Man-made Global Warming) guru Greta against Australian politicians’ judgement? Those having a whack at Australia’s climate change policies appear to be suffering from “MmGW Mania” just as (if not […]

Christmas was Great, Bill Shorten?

Christmas was Great, Bill Shorten?

“SHIFTY” SHORTEN PILLORIED; THUS LOST CHRISTIANS WITH HIS “HIDING BEHIND THE BIBLE” JIBE! December 28, 2019 Dear Editor, How was Christmas for you, Bill Shorten? I ask because, as “Shifty” Bill Shorten, you shifted away from Labor (in fact, lost) so very, very many Australian Christians’ votes when, in the lead-up to the SSM Plebiscite, […]

The Way of the Whigs?

The Way of the Whigs?

A “SLIDE INTO OBLIVION” December 21, 2019 To the Editor: Last week, we saw/heard Speaker Pelosi slam down the gavel on two articles re the impeachment of President Trump.   The two articles are ridiculously weak and effectively unsupportable (meaning no evidence of wrongdoing).  Now, Pelosi is playing a cat-and-mouse game with the U.S. Senate which […]

Bugger-off, Brussels (and UN “Glitterati Queen” Angelina Jolie)!

Bugger-off, Brussels (and UN “Glitterati Queen” Angelina Jolie)!

“THE ALPHA FEMALE” December 21, 2019 Dear Editor, So, some UN Brussels cocooned, unelected (by Australian citizens) rent-seekers are criticising Australia’s economy and life-saving coal-fired electricity production with our handling of Mother Nature’s ever-changing disposition? And the same overfed UN layabouts are also criticising Australia’s so-proven prevention of illegal immigration and our ever-so-generous refugee program? […]

Not Unsympathetic; however…!

Not Unsympathetic; however…!

COULD THE WHITE ISLAND VOLCANO TRAGEDY HAVE BEEN AVERTED? December 12, 2019 Dear Editor, Not for one moment does my heart (as a father of three and grandfather of six) not go out to those having lost loved ones and to those so horrifically burnt in critical condition (and their families) in the New Zealand […]

Man-made Wildfires in Australia

Man-made Wildfires in Australia

“TINDER BOXES WAITING FOR A SPARK” by Viv Forbes, Executive Director, The Saltbush Club, ©2019 (Dec. 8, 2019) — No one should be surprised that our bush is ablaze and our cities are smothered in smoke. For decades now we have been locking up land, banning burn-offs and encouraging eucalypt fire-trees. On a hot day, […]

Stop Your Whining, Malcolm Turnbull! You Were Always Ignoble!

Stop Your Whining, Malcolm Turnbull! You Were Always Ignoble!

“A GREAT IRONY” November 24, 2019 Dear Editor, Spare us your “I could/would have won the election as PM” lamentations, please, Malcolm Turnbull! And fair bloody dinkum! I’ve had a gut-full of the “glitterati,” “chaff-head celeb set,” Leftist MSM pundits, ABC coteries, “clever people,” elites, “wanky people,” etc., etc. bemoaning  “Marshmallow” Malcolm’s demise and blaming […]

Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor

“SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE” November 19, 2019 Dear Editor: In response to a recent column by Dr. Joel Glass and Tom Harris, I want to draw attention to a remarkable document on climate change and national security.  On September 24, 64 senior military and security leaders endorsed “A Climate Security Plan for America.”  It’s signed by more […]

The Danes Prove that Traitorous Mind-Poisoner Adam Bandt, the “Little White Ant” of the Reality of Climate Change…Wrong!

The Danes Prove that Traitorous Mind-Poisoner Adam Bandt, the “Little White Ant” of the Reality of Climate Change…Wrong!

“A WELL-EARNED BEER” November 16, 2019 Dear Editor, Oh, what national treachery: the brainwashing and poisoning of the minds (and souls) of our impressionable young (and not-so-young) people! Because there is “climate change,” always has been, and always will be! However that nefarious Greens politician, Adam Bandt, the “little white ant” of reasonableness (not to […]

Tony Did Not Betray Australia!

Tony Did Not Betray Australia!

“EVER-SO-GUTSY” November 7, 2019 Dear Editor, It is so great to see the Scott Morrison-led Lib/Nat Coalition’s continuance of Tony Abbott’s great work on Australia’s border protection and protection of every Australian’s living standards by not having carbon and mining taxes, etc. Tony Abbott (unlike Labor and the Greens) has never betrayed the quiet (and […]

Beware of Lightning Strikes, Mark Zuckerberg, Especially in Africa!

BECAUSE “VENGEANCE IS MINE!” SO SAID THE LORD RE:  FACEBOOK’S AFRICAN SATELLITE LAUNCH? November 3, 2019 Dear Editor, So tech titans the likes of Facebook are now being scrutinised over betraying their users’/clients’ privacy and/or not fact-checking political advertising? Well, now, “Vengeance is mine!” so sayeth the Lord! Because Facebook exists only because of Judeo-Christian-based […]

Why Wreck our Safe Haven for Refugees?

Why Wreck our Safe Haven for Refugees?

“WILFUL DAMAGE” October 29, 2019 Dear Editor, All those causing Australia‘s wage-earning taxpayers and wealth-creating businesses such inconvenience and monetary losses by so savagely protesting against mining should quietly think through the so-unnecessary and wilful damage they’re doing. Why, for instance, wreck Australia’s economy affording one of the world’s most generous refugee safe-haven programs? Everything […]

Putin “Callicles the Younger” and Trump “Callicles the Elder”?

Putin “Callicles the Younger” and Trump “Callicles the Elder”?

PLATO WAS NO MUG? October 23, 2019 Dear Editor, Sadly, so many “educated but unlearned” so-called intellectuals (not to mention really dopey “clever people”) do not study, let alone heed, history! I wonder if Plato’s The Gorgias heralds in today’s looming showdown between Russia and America, with Putin cast as “Callicles the Younger” and Trump […]

Cob, Shire, Draught and Clydesdale- All but Gone!

IS THE AUSTRALIAN HORSE-RACING INDUSTRY INHUMANE? October 20, 2019 Dear Editor, All those throwing up their arms in shock and horror and shrieking to the heavens over unwanted/end-of-racing-life purebred horses going to the knackery legitimately and humanely (ending high-protein for household pets, racing-greyhounds, zoo animals, etc,) need spare a thought or two for those gone […]

Teddy Roosevelt Ignored (Twice)!

Teddy Roosevelt Ignored (Twice)!

“AMERICA’S BIG STICK” October 19, 2019 Dear Editor, Early 20th-century US President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt (a true warrior; proven, brave in battle) often said: “Speak softly and carry a big stick!” The so-very-shallow Barack Obama (except when ‘eliminating’ bin Laden) often talked softly, whilst losing America’s big stick (especially against Putin, in the Baltic regions)!
