    Believe This - The [email protected]#$%^& Greens are pushing for a 100% :eek: renewables by 2030 trumping Silly Billy Boy Shorten [email protected]#$%^& 45% renewables "target :rolleyes:

    Make no mistake about it - Voting for Labor is voting for the Greens - because Labor cannot govern without them - and The Greens have already put plenty of pressure on Labor reminding them of this - make no mistake about it.

    If you vote Labor besides being stupid you must hate your children and grand children because you in your virtue signaling vote are enslaving them with record debt that they will have to "live" under for the rest of their lives.

    If Labor get in don't blame me because I would never vote for socialism even if you put a gun to my head although many of you would like to :D

    Enjoy the rest of your Easter break :)

    If Labor wins there will be one benefit - If you want to take a holiday in Indonesia or Sri Lanka you won't have to come up with a plane fare, you can just walk there by stepping from boat to boat.

    Ukraine voted in a comedian over the weekend to be it's next President and that is what could happen here :confused:

    If Silly Billy Boy Shorten is elected on the 18th of May we will also have our very own Presidential comedian but no one will be laughing :D

    The CFMMAU has a pledge going around Federal Labor asking them to sign it regarding the opening of the Adani mine in Queensland :)

    Silly Billy Boy Shorten :D was in Queensland today near the Adani Mine (can you believe it) with a young Labor politician who boldly stated at the media conference that he had signed the CFMMAU pledge but Silly Billy clearly declared that - He Did Not Sign It :rolleyes:

    Lets no kid ourselves,if Labor wins the Federal election the Adani Mine and thousands of very good well paying jobs will be lost including the billions of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ of tax revenue :mad:

    If Federal Labor win the election make no mistake about it,Australia will be driven into the ground :(

    No need for logical economic logic.... the left won't have it as it goes against their argument strategy, and they tend to turn to an ad-hoc argument based on self-advised-moral-grounds.

    When they raise morality as a tactic to avoid logic and facts, just remind them that they are supporting BS - a rapist, and his deputy TP - a drug dealer's wife. ;)

    Got me the best reaction I've had all year. :p

    I love watching Bill sit on the fence on Adani. Has to play the left / Greens in Vic and also the good people of QLD and unions.

    Trying to stay out of the corner won't serve Bill well come debate time as SloMo should hammer you on this point and force you to take a position pre election but Bill will try and slip his way through as either decision pre election will effect outcome for Labor in Vic (or support of Greens in Parliament) or lost votes in QLD.

    If I were SloMo, I'd be taking out full page ads in the QLD papers affirming support for Adani and challenge Bill to do same....force the issue SloMo.

    Ask LNP MP's and candidates to sign the CFMEU pledge. Ya got nothing to lose SloMo.

    Extract from the Australian today....https://www.theaustralian.com.au/na...s/news-story/723e0ea7a17db19c20bd4ecd19004958.

    The federal government signed off on the last environmental approval shortly before the May 18 election was called.

    “I have no plans to review the approvals but if we want to be fair dinkum, let’s be fair dinkum and let’s tell the voters the truth,” Mr Shorten said.

    “If I’m prime minister I will adhere to the law of the land. I’m not going to be intimidated or bullied by environmental activists or big mining companies. For me, it is all about the best science, the law of the land and not creating sovereign risk.

    “It doesn’t matter if it is a union who comes to me or a business, an environmental activist, what I will do as prime minister is work with all of those interests but I won’t be the servant of any of those interests.”

    Bill old mate, the voters are seeing through ya.

    I wonder if Bill (if elected) will do a Kevin 07 and have a conference for the future....full of people who can't make things happen.

    I'm scratching my head to think of anything that came of Rudd's 2008 "2020 Conference"

    I found some journo comments / extracts from 2018 reflecting back on Kevin's long weekend with Cate in Canberra.

    =======================================================================

    Andrew Bolt writes in the Herald Sun newspaper:

    During the Summit, 1,000 of our “best and brightest”, hand-picked by new Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, took over Canberra’s Parliament House despite being selected, not elected.

    Rudd asked them to “help us shape a long-term strategy for the nation’s future”, even though voters had only just had an election to decide exactly that.

    This was, in fact, a fascist vision, of a Big Leader gathering tame “representatives” to endorse precisely what he intended.

    But there wasn’t much criticism because among those “best and brightest” were media bosses and senior journalists only too proud to get Rudd’s pat.

    They joined the usual Labor luvvies Cate Blanchett, Tim Flannery, Robert Manne, Julian Burnside, Phillip Adams, Maxine McKew, Hugh Jackman, and the woman who best represented them all, Elena Jeffreys of the Scarlett Alliance collective of prostitutes. No fewer than 188 of these 1,000 were from the Labor-promoting GetUp! group. More past and present ABC staff were invited than were serving Liberals.

    Naturally, the ABC fed their fantasies of being the elite, giving them two days of uninterrupted television coverage, intercut with footage of Rudd, sometimes sitting in mock humility on the floor, noting their thoughts on his to-do list.

    That coverage turned out to be a big mistake. It let us see, for instance, singer Robyn Archer telling us to be more like Cuba, whose dictators apparently “valued citizens who maintained their voice”.

    There was even a unanimous vote for a republic, even though the nation’s voters when last asked, in 1999, had voted “no” in every state.

    As for big, new and good ideas, there was not one which Rudd ever enacted nor which anyone remembers. In fact, when asked to name the best new idea at his summit, Rudd named a bionic eye — only to find it had been invented already.

    Worse, in the 405 pages of summit declarations, there was not one mention of the word “recession” — which Rudd’s government just months later found itself desperately fighting.

    That was just 10 years ago. Remember never to tolerate such foolishness again.

    The Australian newspaper’s columnist Henry Ergas writes of Rudd’s 2020 Summit:

    For every ounce of common sense, there were pounds of proposals that were frankly unhinged, such as the Creative Australia stream’s recommendation that “creative endeavours” be funded “through a one per cent creative dividend from all government departments”, thus diverting $5 billion to the arts. In a room crammed with those the bonanza would benefit, there was, perhaps unsurprisingly, scarcely a murmur of dissent.

    Listening, on the eve of its 10th anniversary, to recordings of the Rudd government’s 2020 Summit, it was hard not to be reminded of Rossini’s quip about Wagner. “One cannot judge Wagner’s Lohengrin from a first hearing,” said the maestro, “and I certainly do not intend to hear it a second time.”

    Rudd, Gillard and Swan were like three idiots fighting over the controls of an aeroplane than none of them knew how to fly.

    I heard yesterday that in 27 Federal electorates,I'll say that again,in 27 Federal electorates NOT ONE Labor candidate had a picture or even mention Silly Billy on their election promotional material,NOT EVEN ONE :D

    I also heard that many of them don't want him anywhere near them or their electorate because even they know that Silly Billy is really on the nose :)

    Silly Billy Boy Shorten no matter how you look at it is the worst thing that could happen to Australia politically in 100 years :confused:

    This is what I have observed are largely the differences between Liberal and Labor voters :D

    Liberal voters -

    # Drink wine

    # Smoke Cigars

    # Better health

    # Richer financially

    # More travelled e.g. Paris London and New York :D

    # More educated

    # Listen to Fox T.V. :)

    Labor voters -

    # Drink beer

    # Smoke cigarettes

    # Poorer health

    # Poorer financially

    # Less travelled e.g. Bali Bali and Bali :(

    # Less educated

    # Listen to ABC T.V. :confused:

    So vote Labor if you like :D

    No-one's going to change their mind here doserz. Minds closed to change.

    There's no way I'd vote for the current lot of inept and corrupt parasites occupying the benches - either side. But considering the loopy, and dangerous fringe party mobs - see the thread on Anning and his idiocy, a coalition of the brain short on either side would be a disaster.

    We can be as idealistic as we like, the the practicality means one party or the other, with minor differences, and nothing of significance being dealt with in the big picture - though I tend toward Labor for fixing the water / rivers issue - knowing the wrecking ball is already swinging.

    Quite the generalisation if I may say.....I'm a recovering Liberal voter. Once they knifed Tony it was all over for me. I'm even more a conservative Australian these days.

    As a general statement from a conservative who enjoys his white make privilege and I ....

    • love my beer
    • love my cigs
    • watch the ABC
    • do not smoke cigars
    • have not traveled beyond Asia and the Pacific (cos I was too busy working and studying my butt off to take long holidays for the first 20+ years post school)
    • associate with (some very good friends) what you and some demographers / Sociologists may describe as working class labor voters. They are nurses, steel workers, mechanics, factory workers (a far cry from my professional background) and most without post high school / uni education but they are some of clueist people I come across when it comes to spotting a fake. Most if not all are pragmatic conservatives and would not vote for Labor or the Watermelons in a pink fit.

    ALP research from 2017 shows some of the characteristics you have applied to Liberal voters apply equally to Greens voters.

    https://www.theaustralian.com.au/na...y/news-story/9966be6beaf5020c3a82616d7d923a96

    Green voters are snobs, says Labor survey
    [​IMG]
    Labor Party research claims that Greens voters are more philosophically aligned to the Liberal Party. Picture: AAP
    About 70 per cent of Greens voters in inner Melbourne are rich, dislike unions and think suburban people are backwards, racist and bigoted, Labor has concluded based on its own research.

    A six-month survey of Melbourne Greens voters has encouraged the Victorian Labor Party to give up on campaigning to most of them, arguing they do not share Labor values and are closer to the Liberals.

    Labor has dubbed them “Teal Greens”, with teal being a colour blend of green and blue. The party has decided to target the 30 per cent “Red Greens” in Melbourne’s inner city who are typically university students or Millennials starting their careers.


    “Red Greens” are usually renters who are more likely to come from Labor families, while “Teal Greens” own expensive inner-city homes and have parents who vote Liberal.

    The qualitative research surveyed more than 50 Greens voters in inner suburbs such as Fitzroy, Brunswick and Clifton Hill, from January to June this year. Party sources said the findings showed the biggest concern of many Greens voters was the notion of living in the outer suburbs that contributed to their interest in local planning laws.

    “Teal Greens” are usually highly paid professionals in two-wage households, are aged in their 30s and 40s and “look down on” people in suburbs, thinking they hold Australia back from being “tolerant” and “just”.

    After the Greens’ victory in the state seat of Northcote at the weekend, Labor faces a fight to hold inner-Melbourne federal seats such as Batman, Wills and Melbourne Ports. Labor thinks the broader boundaries of the electorates will help it retain the seats as they encompass modest suburbs as well as affluent inner-city ones.

    Victorian senator Kim Carr said: “The blue Greens are really the hardcore Liberal types in their attitudes, the red Greens are more sympathetic to our message. There is the homeowners and the renters big divide.

    “The homeowners talk about their sense of privilege and their sense of entitlement, their wealth is the natural order of things rather than good fortune.”

    Senator Carr, the federal opposition industry spokesman, said many “blue Greens” migrated into inner-city Labor seats from traditionally Liberal areas or from Sydney and Brisbane.

    “These are traditionally Liberal voters that are moving into these areas. They are not Labor people,” Senator Carr said. “They claim to be progressive social values but we surveyed them and their biggest fear was actually being forced to live in Pascoe Vale and Coburg. Their real anxieties are different to what they claim them to be. Their preoccupations are essentially material conditions, not with the state of the world environment.” The “blue Greens” traded on “snob appeal” and were closed to Labor, he said.

    Greens MP Adam Bandt said the claims were “fairytales” and voters were shifting because of Labor’s support for offshore processing and the Adani coalmine.

    I have made these observations over many many years and will take them to the grave,but there is always exceptions to every rule I have come to learn.

    But saying that you should watch more Sky channel 53 (free) try to travel overseas because it broadens the mind being there and try to give up the nails,they are very very bad for your health :)

    Look at it this way,if you gave up the bungers you could travel overseas gaining experiences that you can get no other way :D

    I sadly know people who have moved a block away from were they were born worked in the same job all their lives and have only travel to Bali if they are "lucky" and they of course are Labor voters,a more tragic existence I could not imagine :confused:

    A completely wasted life I you ask me o_O
