What are our politicians doing?
Why are we paying them $200k plus when we haven’t seen any real outcomes since Tony Abbott stopped the boats and repealed the Carbon Tax?
Malcolm Turnbull was suppose to be a better Prime Minister than Tony Abbott but what has he actually achieved besides his own annihilation?
At the moment Australia faces:
- An energy crisis. No talk about real energy reform such as Nuclear but more subsidies to renewables which have proven in South Australia to be a dud.
- Out of control debt. The Liberal National Governments is throwing money away like it grows on tree’s. The fact we are spending $300,000 a minute on Welfare should be of concern.
- Out of control immigration levels. You can only have to look at Sydney and Melbourne to see that our immigration levels are not sustainable. Sydney itself have embraced the ‘go high’ approach to living with high rise apartments clogging up Sydney streets. Yet Government refuses to outlay any infrastructure such as frontline health services, roads, schools, police etc to deal with the massive growth.
- Increased terror risks. Government tends to tip toe around Islam and the potential risks it imposes on the Western World. Now of course not all muslims are terrorists but nearly all terrorists in the modern world comes from a deranged bunch of Muslims. Even ASIO has admitted that we have to tread carefully when it comes to Islam because if you criticise it, you risk more terror attacks.
- A technological brain freeze. The Government has piss farted around with NBN which is as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Government should never have nationalised NBN instead they should have given tax incentives for the private sector to deliver state of the art internet.
These are just some of the issue which are facing our Australia today. Yet our politicians are more worried about same sex marriage, transgender reassignment, changing Australia Day, having quotas for women to serve in Parliament, giving themselves a pay rise, getting on the United Nations (this will be a story for another day) and the list goes on. Gone are the days when Governments, like the one John Howard led or even Bob Hawke, tackle real political issues – issues that affect all Australians rather than just the minority. It is sad that the media play on these minor issues only to get good ratings because lets be honest, same sex marriage is a highly emotional topic which gets people feisty on both sides of the argument.
Bill Shorten, the alternative Prime Minister looks almost certain to be our Prime Minister after the next election. What he stands for is no where near the likes of Bob Hawke or Paul Keating, this bloke embraces identity politics and populist mumbo jumbo. When he wins the next election, I predict he won’t last very long, because like most modern Governments, they don’t tackle the big issues. Australia is Doomed!
Love is love but equality is just for the few. That is the mindset of the Inner West Council in Sydney. According to the Sydney Morning Herald (24/09/2017) they reported that the newly elected Labor Mayor, Darcy Byrne, has promised to provide same sex couples free venues if they decide to get married in their halls and community centres. This offer will be available for 100 days post the successful passage of same sex legislation. As a Conservative Libertarian this doesn’t bother me if it was a private business but can you imagine if a Council decided to do this for heterosexual couples only, the media and other left wing nut jobs would be in complete meltdown.
A Council is a government body. Everything they spend their money on belongs to the ratepayer. Fee’s that they charge for venues such as halls and community centres subsidies the maintenance, electricity, water and upgrades of the buildings. By charging users to use those facilities is beneficial to ratepayers otherwise ratepayers would be slogged with more rates. Now I assume the people of Inner West don’t particular care about fiscal responsibility otherwise they wouldn’t have voted for either Labor or the Green’s but the principle of using ratepayers money to provide free venues for same sex marriage couples is fiscally irresponsible especially when they are running at a $3.9m deficit (Inner West Operational Plan and Budget 2017/18).
In 2012, a Colorado baker refused to bake a cake for a gay couple citing that same sex marriage is against his religious views. The left wing media and other left wing nut jobs were outraged by this ‘vicious attack’ on civil liberties and in their usual deranged way, protested. This case is now before the Supreme Court. If the Inner West Council decide to open up this idea of not charging same sex couples to use their halls and community centres, could heterosexual couples who want to marry take the Council to court for discrimination?
Now I hear screeching already by lefties shouting “You right wing bigots you think it’s ok if people discriminatate against the gays but when we discriminate against you white heterosexual males then you go and cry.”
The difference between the Baker and the Council is that the Baker is a private individual or a private business that should be entitled to be free of who he does dealings with. A Council on the other hand is an entity that belongs to the people, that is, everyone who lives within that council, irrespective of their political leanings. If Qantas had turned around and said “Free flights for same sex couples for the first 100 days of post same sex marriage legislation” I wouldn’t really care. Qantas is a private business and what they do is up to them and their shareholders. For your information Qantas has already donated $1million to the Yes campaign and I am not losing any sleep over it.
The big question though, why would anyone get married in the Inner West, its a concrete jungle with no real serenity but I can probably safely assume that the majority people who live within the Inner West Council probably support this idea by Mayor Byrne. The issue here though is that this sets a precedence for other councils to jump on board. We already know local councils like to waste ratepayers money, Sydney Lord Mayor, Clover Moore, has proven this with her monument of a tape worm.
