China represents all that is positive in our world

Palmer is right! We Aussies have an unnatural fear of China and I don't know why we are hanging onto this historical absurdity. I have been to China six times and why? Because China represents all that is positive in our world. No other country plants as many trees as China. No other country has removed the poverty label as well as China. No other country presents a peaceful existence as China: I can walk down any street in any city in China and not feel threatened. I cannot do this in Sydney.

Stop the pay of all politicians until ...

Stop the pay of all the politicians and army chiefs until this sad situation is righted. What is wrong with people who, after they are elected, become strangers to all the promises they mouth on their way to being elected? This military action in Afghanistan, as with our being in Vietnam, is to end up with no victory and Sgt Till's life ...wasted! Why? Because of callous politicians who themselves are not in harm's way.

Goonellabah Dental Clinic

I am a pensioner. Goonellabah Dental Clinic phoned me to get me to visit clinic today [15th Sept 09]. I travelled 200km [each way 100km] for a two minute conversation. I was told that my gums were shrinking. I knew that. I could have been told over the phone or by mail. I mentioned this fact and the good dentist did a minor filling to make my trip worthwhile.
But the system itself ... why make a pensioner travel 200km for a two minute talk?
What sort of arrogance has become the culture of our health people?
It cost a lot of money to drive that far. Who will reimburse me?

John Howard lied. That is the truth. The Children Overboard incident was just one among many which involved our former PM's 'untruths'.

Oz Police think they are the Law

Thank the stars that the magistrate looks after the law and not just the police. Too many of our police think that, as with Stallone's Judge Dredd, they are the law.
