Like Global Warming, “Feminism”, as a creed, is on its last legs.
With growing maturity of nations, discrimination against women in voting, and equal wages for equal work became normal and women’s “rights” slowly shrank to the “right” to abort her baby, or the “right” to promotion over men simply to have 50/50 representation in the top jobs in politics and industry. “Feminism” became a goal-less project, and women in general scarcely cared for it.

Appeasement is in the air.
It is so reminiscent of the run-up to World War II.
In those days, Hitler went into one country after another to “protect” the rights of Germans living there.
In particular, he just walked into Czechoslovakia to care for the German speaking population.
Before he did though, the British PM Neville Chamberlain gave him the go-ahead when he mewed, “How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing.”

Shorten urges WA voters
This weekend Western Australia and Tasmania will go to the polls. The ineffectual Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, having witnessed the fall of Labor in recent times will continue to ignore the damage done by their liaison with the Greens. The begging bowls of both Labor and Greens may ring rather hollow when the counting is done, particularly in WA and probably in Tasmania. An interesting weekend, politically speaking.

Fairfax thinks Abbott should heed others
Although it clearly irks the Abbott haters at Fairfax, Tony Abbott is now boss and has the right to appoint or dismiss those he feels are not in step with Coalition agenda no matter what Fairfax thinks. This empty article has no comment from the PM as to his reasons to sack Treasury Secretary Martin Parkinson.
However, Parkinson did head the the Department of Climate change and was tight with Kevin Rudd. That might be a clue, as Sherlock Holmes might say. Fairfax should come to grips with the fact that they are no longer running the government—shock, horror!

Playing the Game?
SPC is not an Australian company.
It used to be. It is now owned by Coca-Cola.
Things were not going too well for SPC, and Coca-Cola, obviously thinking that Obama was the Prime Minister of Australia and would bail-out troubled companies, did the Oliver Twist on Joe Hockey.
Hockey obviously smelt a rat. Tinned fruit is not nearly as popular as it was in the days when it was too expensive to truck fresh produce all over a huge continent like Australia. Why would anyone make a pavlova with tinned fruit when fresh fruit is so abundant? Perhaps it was the end for this kind of market? [Read more & Comments]
Greenmail ers and green jihadists took a bloody nose after they ponced onto a Russian oil rig in the Arctic.
The man who was unafraid to invade Ukraine, the man who exposed Obama’s timidity in Syria, wasn’t going to be lose sleep about them. He arrested the green jihadists and bunged them in prison for a few months to cool off.
People have been calling the green jihadist’s bluff for some time now. Their greenmail over the top claims fall as flat as the dregs of last month’s champagne once they get into a court.
Look at Michael Mann for example, the inventor of the ‘hockey stick’ predictions of world wide catastrophe. He is a professor at Penn State University. Someone printed that he didn’t belong at Penn State – he belonged in the State pen. [Read more & Comments]
Caught in the headlights with Shorten
Installing Bill Shorten as Labor leader was a dumb move from its very conception. Many within the Party thought so but caved in to the factions. Shorten, in his brief moment on the adult stage of politics has, if anything, proven himself to be the quintessential “rabbit caught in the headlights.”
His performance in parliament is one of a bewildered schoolboy moved from kindergarten to the big kids school. His demeanor is sulking and his questions are repetitious nonsense—Shorten is totally out of his depth and dragging Labor to the bottom of the pool with him.

The ObamaCar was dreamed up by the Fantacist-in-Chief when he was a coke-sniffing kid and read all the left publications. One issue he was attracted to was Ralph Nader’s “Unsafe at Any Speed” condemnation of automobiles in general.
At that time however the accepted wisdom was that the world was going to freeze – Snowball Earth was his mantra.
Years passed and suddenly Carbon Dioxide was the killer.
“How lovely,” he ruminated in 2010 as he puffed his toke in the White House, “if we could have a car – an electric car – that didn’t have this awful carbon dioxide as a by-product. What? The first one came off the production lines in 1884? What? It held the speed record in 1900? And we are still faffing around with those horrible trucks and cars that run on oil?
