Liberal Party policy setting is all wrong

AbetzUgh. The Liberal Party have screwed up the Australian Government’s policy setting again, as we who pay attention knew they would.

Palmer and his cohorts played along, happy to cut a tax which would save his business millions while costing the Australian public billions.

It’s appalling, and next (literally, tomorrow) they’ll be trying to roll back workplace rights for all Australian workers by essentially re-introducing the majority of their previous ‘WorkChoices’ policy.

There’s a pro-forma email to cross bench senators asking them not to support the changes, click here to see it.

Whoops. #100daysofblogging #Day92

So I missed a day of blogging yesterday AND friday this week.

I’ve been doing this #100daysofblogging challenge for 92 days now and I’ve only missed 3 days, but I’ve ‘cheat posted’ a fair few time. Probably about 25% of the time.

That’s alright though, because it shows I have my priorities right. I’m not going to just drop all my other commitments because I whimsically chose to start a 100 day long blogging challenge.

But I’ve learned a fair bit along the way too. Continue reading Whoops. #100daysofblogging #Day92

Liberal Party want to bomb Iraq, again. #Warmongers

There is no doubt about it in my mind, the Liberal Party love war.

This week Tony Abbott has opened the door for Australian forces to re-engage in the war in Iraq. A war born from Western intervention, with an enemy raised in opposition to such intervention.

Bombing Iraq again will not make Australia safer. It will make Australia less safe. It will give extremists and excuse to target Australian’s both here and overseas.

This is NOT a beneficial foreign relations move for us to make. It is warmongering, we haven’t even been asked to send in forces and already the Liberal Party are sabre rattling.

It’s very much like when Abbott jumped the gun and sent SAS soldiers to the UK in advance of what he presumed was a ‘likely deployment’ to Ukraine. The Liberal Party are using war rhetoric to stoke fear in the population as a distraction. Continue reading Liberal Party want to bomb Iraq, again. #Warmongers

Climate Mobilisation taking shape + Two Dogs update!

Tonight we had another very productive organising meeting for the People’s Climate Mobilisation in Perth on September 21.

I’ve been loving having two dogs, they’re hilarious together, they’re constantly play fighting and just as often falling over each other. Old dog Dan (he’s only 7) has been patient with the often annoying pup, but has also been teaching him the rules and telling him off when he breaks them.

Kind of cool to watch.

Got another bed for the dogs yesterday, as Watson (young pup) had fully claimed Dan’s bed since the first night he stayed here.

The goop that filled Watsons’ eyes prior to us adopting him is almost all cleared up now, he shouldn’t need any eye drops. Tomorrow we take him to the vet for a blood test and full health check, standard procedure and he seems pretty healthy and happy to me!

Alright, it’s almost midnight and I’m off to bed. 🙂
