You Reap What You Sow

I came across this from Andrew Bolt’s blog, citing Janet Albrechtson’s highly interesting article in The Australian yesterday:

Malcolm’s Weighted Priorities

Yesterday, I highly recommended that everyone head on down to Malcolm Turnbull’s web page and perform word searches for ‘liberal’, ‘Malcolm’ and ‘Turnbull’:

Quick tangent: for some fun at home, I highly recommend going here, hitting Ctrl+F, typing in ‘liberal’ and seeing how many hits you get (!). Then do the same with ‘Turnbull’ (!!) and ‘Malcolm’ (!!!).

(Yes, you really want to do this).

(It’s ok, I’ll wait…).

It appears that one of Michael Smith’s readers took up the invitation and put together a nice little graphic of the results:

Editorial – With Friends Like Chris…

Whatever charred remains existed of what the Liberal Party once stood for, Chris Pyne managed to show up and empty his bladder on them last week.

People like me have been calling out the ‘Turnbull Coalition’ for not upholding basic Liberal Party values for some time. I’ve even gone to the length of keeping a running list of Turnbull’s thought bubbles and leftist policies so that we don’t forget them all.

Quick tangent: for some fun at home, I highly recommend going here, hitting Ctrl+F, typing in ‘liberal’ and seeing how many hits you get (!). Then do the same with ‘Turnbull’ (!!) and ‘Malcolm’ (!!!).

(Yes, you really want to do this).

(It’s ok, I’ll wait…).

To more people than ever before, it’s now clear that Turnbull and his team have funneled Australian politics into an unsustainable tailspin where:

Climate Change Keeps Giving (UPDATE!)

If you thought that climate change had realised its full potential – and that TMR’s list from the other day* was exhaustive – you’d be wrong!

We’re dealing with one seriously talented beast here ladies and gentlemen (and others). Here are some more talents to add to TMR’s pile from the other day:

Climate Change – Is There Anything it Can’t Do?

Much like doughnuts (1:42), it appears that there’s almost nothing climate change can’t do. Its latest apparent feat is the incredible ability to dramatically increase aircraft turbulence:

All I Want for Christmas is a Climate Refugee

If all you did was read sites like news.com.au, you would really think that the world is about to be overcome with ‘climate refugees’:

Editorial – Theresa May’s Train Wreck

Now this may sound a little silly*, but if you think like Malcolm Turnbull and act like Malcolm Turnbull, then there’s a very good chance that you’ll end up like Malcolm Turnbull – and have a bad time.

Editorial – Quadrant Couldn’t Have Timed Things Any Worse

This time last year, Quadrant lost the last of its government funding. Rather than giving them a handout, I advocated subscribing on the basis that it represented good value for money. I also put my money where my mouth was and subscribed. Many others would have done the same and the folks at Quadrant probably saw a nice spike in subscriptions.

Now that the year is up, many are reflecting on what they got for their money. Doublethink wasn’t supposed to be part of the subscription.

Accounting at the ABC

Did you ever wonder why the ABC’s budget figures never seem to quite add up?

ABC Admits Bias

You’ve probably read this elsewhere already, but it’s simply too good not to share it here for the benefit of those who may not have seen it.

This brilliant piece of work by Beliaik says absolutely everything about the current state of the ABC – which our taxes will fund to the tune of $1.06 billion in 2017-18 (see page 6-31).

I’ve decided to re-post the whole lot to do it justice. If you’re time poor and want the summarised version, feel free to zero in on the bolded parts below or head on down to Andrew Bolt’s blog:
