It's been a long time since I added to this blog site. Perhaps I was too angry or sad at the directions in which the government was taking us.
Well ... November 24 has changed that. What an historic day for Australia.
We have a new Prime Minister, thank God!!!
I can't imagine I'll be writing another post for quite a while. :)Australia Votes 2007

The "Walk against Warming" on Saturday was fantastic. Many thousands of Australians marched in numerous towns and cities around the country to tell our enviro-pathetic government that it is time to get off their butts and do something. The talks from Bob Brown and especially Anthony Albanese before the Sydney walk were terrific.

Stern Review Report
Ok Mr Howard and your Liberal party - without question, the most important report that will ever hit your computers is now online. The Stern Review Report into the economics of climate change is out. For the sake of your children, now is the time for action. Please give up on the tired old line about not doing our bit unless China, India and the USA tow the line too. Hell's bells - show some backbone. Forget about money for a moment and realise that there is more to life. Australia as the 'clever country' (yeah, right) should be overjoyed to play a lead role, rather than dragging our heels. Please read the report with an open mind and a willingness to do something. We'll respect you more for the backflip that you will have to do.

Vegemite on the banned list
Geez John, David Hicks is still languishing in US detention, and now the US has banned Vegemite. Is nothing sacred? What is our Federal Government up to ... or not up to. The US are our mates, right? Well, if you say so.

A win for the good guys!
The contoversial migration bill has been withdrawn. That's a huge win for the good guys!! I greatly admire the senators who crossed the floor to vote against the bill.
Go Getup!! It feels good to have been able to add my name to the petition.

The next election
Johnnie's announced that he is going to contest next year's election. The scary thing is he may just win. I think I'm going to cry ... How can Australians be so stupid. Please wake up Australia and realise that there is more to life than money and the fear of terrorism. Oh, except for you numbskulls in Toowomba who voted not to use recycled waste water for drinking
. You deserve John!
