The Golden Fleece
How can anybody deny that in the last 6 years that the once mighty US has become a joke.
Its President is openly derided by the Russians, he is lampooned in the press worse than Mohammed ever was. Its unemployment approaches depression figures. And its National Debt is rising faster than the thermometer at Lightning Ridge and approaching 18 trillion. Under Obama the US has spent more than all previous Presidents put together – with a shrinking tax base to finance the spending.
Print and borrow is the only way that expenses can be met.
In spite of the horrendous unserviceable national debt there is no whack-job, touchy-feely, insane project that is not given a grant. All anyone has to do is say, “I wonder what would happen if …. It will cost $ to find out” and the doubloons flow into the outstretched hands. [Read more & Comments]
Philanderers take note—two-tiered price structure in brothels!
“Holy Smokes Batman, philanderers with the uncontrollable urge and perhaps the luxury of a “Craig Thomson” credit card need to know what’s going on in our knocking-shops. Fairfax’s scribe Eammon Duff was sent to investigate a Sydney brothel’s two-tiered fee structure and some of the girls are not happy.”
It must be a slow news day at Fairfax although in the interests of the government plan to push young Australians out to work the article is a detailed remuneration menu for interested ladies of whatever colour and bent.
“For the Asian girl $160 for one hour… for the Aussie girl $250 for one hour,” a manager in response to a recent phone inquiry said. [Read more & Comments]
“Welcome day” at Australian Mosques
“Mosques around the country have thrown open their doors today as part of a government initiative to “shake away misconceptions” about the faith.”
Those eager enough to attend might print the following and seek explanation about the word “taqiyya” that means to protect against or conceal. Ask the Imam!
Islam and jihad
8) The principle of al-Taqiyya

Iran: Reyhaneh Jabbari hanged under Sharia law
Reyhaneh Jabbari was hanged in Iran under Sharia law AKA the religion of love and peace despite President Hassan Rouhani, who won election last year partly on promises of liberal reform, to intervene to get it commuted.
The result is clear evidence that Hassan had no intention to intervene in the insane decrees set down by Sharia and the only person able to change the sentence was supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who showed no interest in doing so. [Read more & Comments]
Obama and Pajama Boy – the Batman and Robin of modern America
[The asexual, androgynous, pajama boy vacantly sipping cocoa in his onesie is slowly becoming the image that will survive Obamaism. He was the image that Obama hoped would sell the ramshackle Obamacare.]
The Pajama Boy Era is Over
Obama’s approval ratings and MSNBC’s viewer ratings are in a close race to the bottom of Death Valley. It’s only a question of which set of obnoxious hipsters with a head full of bad policy ideas and no real life experience will be fired first; the Rachel Maddow crew or the White House staff.

Lachlan didn’t notice
Lachlan Murdoch, the heir to the Murdoch media empire, siezed upon Australia’s anti-terrorism laws to put himself forward as a Great Thinker about the freedom of the press.
He warbled and warned on the occasion of the ‘Keith Murdoch Oration’ – that Australia was losing its most cherished possession – the freedom of the press.
The KMO, by the way, is an occasion for other Great Thinkers like Paul Keating to come out and spruik about what-life-could-be-like-if-only while wrapping the whole thing in a load of tosh about freedom of the press. [Read more & Comments]
Have I got a deal for you!!
Old age can be cause for many significant adjustments in life. As Leonard Cohen sang: “Well, my friends are gone and my hair is grey. I ache in the places where I used to play” but I’m not Leonard Cohen and, at 63, I’m still blushingly fit and a lean 110kg and still puffing my way through 25 a day. But my Doctor told me that to stay an “average” fit and healthy for my age I should imbibe one glass of red wine per day. I don’t want to be just “average”; I want to be five times “fitter” than anyone else my age so I imbibe at least five glasses of the finest cheap red I can get from my wine supplier every day. I supplement that with a modest ingestion of Tooheys New or Carlton Crown – and the occasional Bombay Sapphire or Bundaberg OP. At this rate, I should live as long as Methuselah.
But I have noticed that now that I have matured, to some extent, I find summers are much more difficult to endure than winters. I can breeze through a winter in the Snowy Mountains with the fog and mist, the frozen water pipes, the frosts that last till late afternoon; and I do all that in shorts, thongs and short-sleeved shirts. But when the summer hits I start to suffer. [Read more & Comments]
A Canadian view through a hole in their Maple Leaf
Canadian writer Mark Steyn writes about his warnings of an impending Islamic problem largely ignored by those elected to preserve and maintain safety and harmony among its citizens.
While Mr Steyn’s message now serves as a huge wake-up call to all Canadians, Australian politicians who foolishly believe the Islamic “bubble” is merely a blip on the road of history and will soon evaporate should read this, understand it well and act decisively as that tragic moment of history will be repeated here, unless…
The sub-title of my new book is “Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned”. I have been writing for over a decade now about the west’s wannabe jihadists, often born and raised in Canada and America and Britain and Australia and Europe, some of them converts – or “reverts”, as they call them.
