Democracy – is it a gift or burden?

The USA held a democratic election in which the majority of the people elected a new president. Is it then permissible for protesters to act against the will of the people? – Let me explain this in terms of democracy. Women marched and protested the result. The reasons given were the new president was accused … [Read the full story]

Judges should be made culpable!

I have raised this question many times. Who is held responsible when Judges and parole boards make mistakes? Convicted criminals given lenient sentences by judges. Parole boards releasing criminals back into society. If they go on to commit another violent crime, who takes responsibility and who is punished for the mistakes? The families who lose or … [Read the full story]

Is it Presidential Elect, Dallas or Neighbours

Reading the latest news about the Presidential Election reminds me of an episode of Dallas or even an episode of Neighbours. Only in  America can they elect a Trump and then spend hundreds of pages of news and TV coverage attacking the man they voted into office. It makes you proud to see democracy at work. … [Read the full story]

Time to assess the world today

2017 is the year to understand why we are in a crisis around the world – we must start with the past.

I have my predictions for 2017 – some are obvious, but in todays political climate I suppose we aren’t going to be surprised at anything anymore. Hopefully the war in Syria will end in 2017 – I think it will. The USA, Russia and Iran will work together to try and bring peace to Syria. Trump … [Read the full story]

I’m fed up with a negative government

I am beginning to think Australian politics is looking like the American system. When a vote is required for what ever reason, the opposition will take an opposing view and delay or even stop the acceptance of the vote. In America the medicare system proposed by the President, was opposed by the senate and the … [Read the full story]

She’s hot

Hello lovers of hot-ness. This lovely young lady is Hailey Clauson. She’s all over the net, so, a bit difficult to say we don’t know who she is. She’s American, but with a name like Clauson, I don’t think her routes would have started in the USA. She’s been a cover star for the Sports … [Read the full story]

History is in the eye of the ignorant

I am getting older and spend my time looking backwards at history. That is true history, not the history proposed by twenty somethings just out of university. As a lad I was able to talk to my Grandad, he told me about the First World War. Not from history books, but from the sights and … [Read the full story]

The Great Divide – the ‘Haves’ and ‘Have-Nots’

When I was a lad I could not wait to leave school and start work, earn money, buy clothes, buy smokes and start going out to clubs and pubs. It was a time of almost full employment. At fifteen years old, I could start a job on Monday – and if I didn’t like it, would … [Read the full story]
