Protesters Interrupt Parliament (Video Australia)

Anthony Albanese said the federal opposition encouraged anti-carbon tax protesters to disrupt parliament.
During Question Time around 40 people stood up in the public gallery and yelled "no carbon tax", "shame Labor" and "shame Gillard" as the prime minister was speaking. Of course security ejected these people out of the chamber, but I fully support these peaceful protesters, and good on them for voicing their opinion. .

Climate Change and Snow

Way back in the year 2000, yes it was a long time ago, it was reported in England by a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (yes that's the same one that brought us Climategate) said that Winter was basically over for the world. Yes we can look back on these words of wisdom that has bought us a Cap and Trade, Carbon tax's, Carbon trading, and nearly an Emission Trading Scheme (ETS) in Australia. Can anyone remember this, it was reported all over the world. Incase some have forgotten, have a read:-

Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain's culture, as warmer winters - which scientists are attributing to global climate change - produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white January's and February's.

However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event".

"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.

All this and much, much more was reported in The Independent in March 2000.

Experts warned freezing winds would sweep across Eastern parts of England bringing up to 10cm of snow and sending temperatures crashing below zero. Mirror November 2008.

Finally someone got a bit sick and tired of all the wrong information that Britain's Met Office come under fire. The Sunday Times 2010

There are of course a lot more, but I'm sure you get the picture, exactly the same thing has been happening in America as well, people get told one thing, you are supposed to believe it, but you find a few years down the track, it just wasn't right.

All these people have since got smarter, and now they make their predictions for 2020/2050, these seem to be the magic dates now. Anyway Australia's snow is going to be that thin that it is going to melt the minute it hits the ground, hence no more skiing.

2008 in Australia, and we have headlines from the ABC:- Global Warming to shorten ski season:-CSIRO.

There's going to be shorter snow seasons, not as much depth of snow on the ground, with that situation deteriorating further as we go through the century. ABC May 2008.

Winter comes Early Mt Baw Baw has been blanketed with more than 30cm of fresh snow as eager snowboarders take to the slopes well ahead of the official opening to the ski season.
Herald Sun May 2011.

The latest of course is now Climate Change brings snow as well,but isn't the idea of a carbon tax, cap and trade etc. to stop the world from warming? I feel they were left scratching their heads and this is the best they could come up with. Must keep that money coming in at all cost.

Interview with John Howard on the ABC (Video)

Former Prime Minister of Australia John Howard speaks to Chris Uhlmann from the ABC about the current state of the political landscape.
You may notice that Mr. Howard no longer has to wear glasses, he had laser surgery done on his cataracts, so he no longer needs them.

Greens Want More Taxes (Australia)

Now that the Greens have the balance of power in the Senate, with all their other wacky ideas, they are talking about a wealth tax. For her maiden speech in Federal Parliament Senator Lee Rhiannon just couldn't help herself, she thinks redistribution of wealth will eliminate inequality. (Isn't that what the carbon tax is all about) This of course comes with the usual argument that this will help a lot of people. That's just what we need another tax to add to all the others. The Senator also said that she was proud of her Socialist Party background. Someone should inform the Senator that Communism failed, it does not work.

In her first speech to federal parliament, the NSW Greens senator said she was proud of her Socialist Party background, and accused her critics of cold war-style “McCarthyism”.
“Taxes on wealth, like an estate tax, and a sovereign wealth fund, are needed in Australia,” Senator Rhiannon said.
The Australian

This quote was said by Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers in 1984.

You Cannot Multiply Wealth by Dividing It

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don’t multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn’t first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don’t have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don’t get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

It also seems that people have wiped out entries in Wikipedia of the Senators past. There was a very good article about this in the Punch, with exactly what was wiped out in Wikipedia.

systematically deleted her political history prior to 1990, by suppressing any version of the Wikipedia article which might be embarrassing to Senator Rhiannon. The Punch.

The Convoy of No Confidence in Canberra (Video/Pictures)

First off I would like to Thank all those people that took part in the Convoy, you certainly have done Australia Proud, and Thank You for making the effort to get a message to Canberra that there are Millions of people that are not happy with a whole range of issues that this minority Government have done or about to do. Unfortunately I was one of the people that could not make it to Canberra, but I felt those in the Convoy were representing me as well.

Again Thank You, and what a fantastic effort, some people drove nearly 4,000klm to get that message there, all spent their own money for fuel, food etc on their way. Some of the smaller towns actually passed around the hat to donate what they could to try and help those in the Convoy with petrol. Not one journalist as far as I know even reported this, nor were there reports about all the people along the way, waving the Aussie flag, in support of the convoy as they passed. This is the true Aussie spirit, yet not one journalist thought it was worth reporting.

Thousands of cars that beeped as they passed the Convoy to show their support, none of this was mentioned. What is going on with our so called Journalists, what absolutely terrible coverage they did, they didn't even put any effort at all into covering the Convoy. I am completely disgusted with all the papers across Australia, this was History for OZ, and no one wanted to actually show how so many Aussies are upset with the present minority Government.

Most of the papers put a bad light on the Convoy, no more so than the Canberra Press, that for days only reported how much this Convoy was going to disturb the people of Canberra, and the comments in that paper were disgusting.

There were a lot of reports about there only being a couple of hundred trucks, well that also is not the case, the reason this was reported was because the AFP told Convoy organizers that they can only do the circle around Parliament House 2 Convoys at a time, these started as early as 5.30am. Again journalists did not do their homework before reporting. No one actually knows how many trucks were involved in the 11 Convoy's, no one actually knows how many car, utes, campervans, or caravans were involved.

From You Tube:-
Police escorted drivers out of EPIC showgrounds in Canberra and into Parliament. I was on the ground, attempting to capture the moment this nation is set to wake up to the unfolding human rights crisis in the bush brought about by governments with no concern for business, producers or people.

This is a photo of some of the first Convoy's to arrive in Canberra, which was on the Sunday. Yes there was a couple of Convoy's that arrived on Sunday, not all the Convoys arrived on Monday.

A COLLECTION of semi-trailers, motorhomes, 4WDs, cars and even a horse float will roll into Canberra today demanding a new

Seeing as the Convoy was escorted into Canberra only a couple at a time, depending on what time you were watching, it did seem like there wasn't many people at all. I would like to know who's idea it was that the Convoy be split up into sections, to make it seem like they wasn't a lot of cars, trucks etc. A lesson learned I feel, and I also feel it puts a terrible light onto our so called journalists.

At the rally on Monday the 22nd of August, journalist didn't report on the issues that mattered at all, they reported on the number of people, yet if you speak to anyone that was at the rally they will tell you there were still trucks, cars etc. going around Parliament House underneath them tooting horns, to let people know they were there, no where for them all to park, was this reported in the papers, NO.

Inside Parliament federal transport minister Anthony Albanese criticised the event.
“The convoy of no Consequence, Mr Speaker, the convoy of no consequence where a couple of hundred people gathered with no support from the mainstream organisations, the people who believe in one world government.”
Beef Central
You can watch an ABC video of this, and you can see and hear EVERY Labor person in Parliament laughing and clapping, absolutely disgusting behavior by our so called Ministers, this is what Labor thinks of every day Australians, I saw red when I saw this on TV, and I can only imagine the anger of others over what was said in Parliament by Labor that day.
There is a copy right on the video, but you can watch it Here.

Broadcaster Alan Jones said the smaller-than-expected crowd was because "thousands" of people had been blocked from attending the rally and that "hundreds" of trucks in the convoy had been stopped at the border as they tried to enter Canberra from New South Wales.

This has been denied by just about everybody, but take the time to listen to the Truck drivers that were there, and listen to exactly what did happen.

A fantastic article in Quadrant Online please take the time to read it.

Matt and I both cried. After 4½ days of driving across Australia, hearing from every-day hard-working Australians about how difficult it is to just get on with producing, we had one hell of a welcome to Canberra yesterday morning!The Thompsons go to Canberra
