We Need the Government to Do What?!

When TMR is not busy being a private lawyer, relishing sledge on a basketball court or tending to his fruit trees, he can be found cooking up culinary delights – such as his ridiculously tasty chicken and prawn curry laksa (using plenty of goodies from the yard such as coriander, Vietnamese mint, Thai chilli, Kaffir lime leaves and Tahitian lime juice).

Regrettably, TMR made the mistake last night of attempting to consume his laksa while resident ‘conservatives’ Peta Credlin and Cory Bernardi attempted to debate the parlous state of Australia’s energy market with resident economic imbecile leftist Nicholas Reece on Sky’s Paul Murray Live.

Editorial – Watering the Leaves

If you had a limited amount of water and could use it on a tree’s roots or leaves, which would you choose?

Even Forrest Gump could probably tell you that his mamma always said that we put sprinklers on the ground for good reason. Yet, despite this, our Federal opposition is determined to commandeer precious resources away from the roots of our economy and sprinkle them over the leaves.

Shorten Attacks Business Class

Bill Shorten appears committed to destroying Australia’s middle and aspirational classes. His latest ill-conceived attack on discretionary family trusts makes this abundantly clear.

Advance Australia Fair

Who is the one creating more wealth for toil:

  • the person who took out a business loan to buy the pub; who paid for the pub’s fitout and facilites; who takes on the unending administrative and operational burdens imposed on the pub; the risk of the pub failing – and, who guarantees to the beer pourer (and all their fellow beer pourers) that they will enjoy the certainty of having an agreed amount of money deposited into their bank account at the same interval of time?

Venezuela in Australia

The City of Fremantle has decided to give ‘co-operative’ land development a try. It’s not going to end pretty.

Even if you don’t live in Fremantle or Western Australia, you should still care about this – because if it’s not already happening in an area near you, it could well be soon enough.

Venezuela Has Completely Run Out of Other Peoples’ Money

For those who haven’t been following the dire situation in Venezuela, it serves as a timely reminder of what happens when extreme socialism takes over. This is the sad story of how Venezuela came to be and why it matters for Australia and every other developed nation in the world.

One Country Takes Its Medicine, Another Refuses

Full credit to the people of Portugal for not completely giving in to socialism and shameless populism. I say ‘not completely’ as they now have a cross-bench issue not unlike Australia’s:

France’s Credit Rating Downgraded

When socialists are in power, it’s often only a matter of time before they run out of other people’s money.

It takes a lot to get Moody’s off their backsides and downgrade the credit rating of a ‘wealthy, well-diversified economy’, so full credit to Hollande’s administration for this achievement reported on Sky News:
