Independents spit the dummy over Albanese’s staff cuts proposal

Independents spit the dummy over Albanese’s staff cuts proposal

Yet again we, the hapless electorate, find ourselves an unwilling and exasperated audience for the performance of melodramatic spats that could and should be resolved by negotiation between the parties involved. The bad faith of the Independents who took this to media as their first, rather than their last resort, cannot be overlooked.

Their threat to block legislation over this matter is unconscionable. MPs and senators would do well to recognise that the electorate has in the main lost patience with belligerence and histrionics of the kind that has wrought so much havoc on our country for the last nine years.

If you’re going to throw all your toys out of the cot at the first obstacle you encounter, maybe you’re in the wrong job and maybe in three years’ time, we’ll sack you like we sacked your predecessors.

The transphobia “moral” panic – » The Australian Independent Media Network

When decent Australians allow themselves to be carried along by the wave of this moral panic, they are not defending women. What they are doing is becoming caught up on the rational-sounding fringes of a hysteria that will lead to violence.

Governments are the cause of many of our problems – they could also easily solve them – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Morrison and Frydenberg celebrated “low unemployment” as a sign of their ” management skills” when it’s really proved to be their “failure”. Qualified workers are simply not available why? They cut the funding to Tech colleges and closed the doors to immigration and now have a backlogged waiting list of visa applications. As a result businesses can’t find the right people needed for the jobs. They can’t even get unskilled workers. What’s more Peter Dutton the worst ever Health Minister was then the Immigration Minister leaving the department struggling with the visa applications. Dutton has now claimed the crown of the worst Immigration Minister ever. These LNP assholes saw us slide down the ladder when compared to other nations and they have been consistently doing it for the past decade. Morrison doing nothing but scaming us in front of the lights cameras and in different costmes telling us we are the best.

When governments have access to the best experts, the latest evidence and analysis and the benefits of a fiat currency, and yet these problems persist, it’s hard not to think that politicians think more about themselves than they do about making decisions in the best interests of the country.

Liberal Party troll and propagandist Avi Yemini sues Labor Party troll @PRGuy17 for defamation – Kangaroo Court of Australia

Avi Yemini and Craig Kelly

Whatever Avi Yemini does almost always seems to benefit the Liberal Party so the people who are demanding to know who @PRGuy17 is and who funds him/her should also be asking the same questions of Avi Yemini as he is a Liberal Party troll as much, if not more, as @PRGuy17 is a Labor Party troll. Has Avi Yemini received any money from the Liberal Party or its supporters and has Avi Yemini received any money from Clive Palmer for the free advertising he gave Palmer’s UAP during the 2022 election?

Zoe Daniel: How to fix the energy crisis the Coalition’s gave us

Zoe Daniel

Fires. Floods. Pandemic. War. And now an energy crisis. These are wearing times for households and businesses – but there is a solution

Electricity poses a particular problem because businesses and households do not know what they are going to be charged until after they have used it.

So, what can we do?

Why the Oath Keepers looks an Awful lot like al-Qaeda and Trump is its Usama Bin Laden

January 6 and its aftermath clearly could have been far more bloody if the Capitol police and then the Secret Service had not done such a good job of protecting elected officials from these heavily armed and militarily trained wack jobs. It should be remembered how the odious Trump cultivated these right-wing militias, and told a similar group to “stand back and stand by” during his debate with Joe Biden. They stood by all right.

Reasons not to be American Australia.

We can’t pretend we don’t know what’s happening and where it will lead if it’s not stopped—the question is what we will do about it.

Capitalism Creates Chaos. The Carceral System Is a Bad Attempt to Contain It.

Capitalism creates social disorder and relies on police and prisons to manage it. Until liberals recognize this link between criminal justice and the economy, their reform programs will be ineffectual — and racist policing and mass incarceration will persist.
