End Immigration - it sux resources away from Australians

End Immigration - it sux resources away from Australia's homeless, unemployed and growing underclass. Migrants by plane rob locals of affordable housing, jobs, you name it. State infrastructure can't cope with 200,000 immigrants a year. The Green Foreign Labor Coalition is imposing upon Australians what British colonists did to Aborigines - taking over, marginalising, deculturing. National television programmes that antagonise Australians, pit immigrants against locals, that stir up racism like Joe Hildebrand's 'Dumb, Drunk and Racist' do not help.

End Immigration - it sux resources away from Australia's homeless, unemployed and growing underclass.

CIA Agent Ray Davis shooting Pakistanis deserves Pakistani Justice

When will the United States and Israel learn that sending their respective military cloak and dagger agents to criminal missions in foreign countries is not part of liberty and justice?

May US CIA agent Ray Davis receive proper Pakistani justice, according to Pakistani law.

If Davis should be found guilty and summarily executed, so be it a lesson for US spying. For the US head of state to intervene, undermines the legitimacy of the position.
Obama has lost credibility.

How else is the Pentagon to change its terrorism behaviour?

Australia's growing underclass plus comment from Jim Saleam

Back on May 17th, 2010 I wrote an article on CanDoBetter entitled 'Australia's growing underclass'. The article came out of my personal exposure to months of abject unemployment forcing me, out of respect for my family, to humbly to walk into CentreLink. To my disgust, since I was not in absolute starvation-poverty CentreLink rejected my claim for temporary unemployment benefits. Only thanks to my broader family we didn't come close to losing our house. This article also contains a very interesting response from Dr Jim Saleam of the Australia First party about accusations of a Nazi past.

Immigrant demand denying Australia's Gen-Y of urban housing

A SENIOR Treasury official has sounded the alarm over Australia's property market.
He has warned that the prospect of a sudden and dramatic drop in prices is "the elephant in the room" and should not be ignored by the federal government.

Australians disillusioned with our vested interest democracy should look to the Swiss model

We supposedly have representative democracy in Australia, in which Members of Parliament are supposed to represent their electorate in the three levels of government. But the form of democracy we really have in Australia is a 'vested interest democracy', where members typically are patsies of political parties, which are beholden to vested interest groups. This has unsavoury similarities to the overtly corrupt political culture of many Asian countries to Australia's north.

What Australians deserve, have fought in wars for and rightly expect is true democracy, not the vested interest democracy that we put up with today.

Overpopulation poses two global problems

The overpopulation poses at least two problems:

(1) The excessive growth of humanity is destroying natural systems across the globe. Five selfish and delinquent countries contribute to nearly 50% of the world's population (notably China, India, USA, Indonesia and Brazil).

(2) The mass migration of humans due to whatever cause (civil war, famine, climate change, natural disasters, sea rise, poverty, recession, the lure of a better life, whatever).

Call for Conditional Citizenship Bill

Australian Citizenship Pledge:

'From this time forward I pledge my loyalty to Australia and its people, whose democratic beliefs I share, whose rights and liberties I respect, and whose laws I will uphold and obey.'

When new Australians pledge their loyalty to Australia, it is not some token spiel, it is a solemn oath! Many proudly respect this oath, but evidence from our gaols demonstrates that also many do not.

Australian citizenship is a privilege, highly valued and sought after globally. It is not a right. Citizenship comes with prerequisite conditions and performance conditions.

'Skills Shortage' - industry euphemism for 'migrants are cheaper than local training'!

The so-called 'skills shortage' in Australia is mere industry propaganda to avoid training costs. This is despite Australia have an advanced industralised base and a deep capacity as an education training nation and indeed exporter of education!
Yes, government and industry bleat unsubstantiated a 'skills shortage' so they can bring more and more immigrants for selfish short term economic ends while avoid financial cost of education and training locally and moral obligations to do so.

Mining companies are the worst. Their international ring-in approach sourcing foreign contractors suits mining companies to a tee - no give and all take!

Deport immigrants out of our overcrowded gaols and out of the country for good!

Australians need to call for reform to our Immigration Act and Citizenship Act, to automatically deport those foreigners invited to our shores who subsequently commit serious crimes and end up in Australian gaols.

Immigrants to our shores who flout Australian laws instantly forfeit their right to live in Australia. Criminals downgrade Australian society, especially immigrants who bring their criminality. They are an unwelcome burden. As if Australia doesn't have enough criminals of its own? Who needs more? Anyone born overseas who becomes convicted in Australia of a serious crime needs to be automatically deported - residency status or citizenship status made null and void and ousted, never to return!

Another QANTAS incident - the price of CEO Alan Joyce's 'cost-cutting' and off-shoring maintenance

This morning a Qantas A380 at high altitude over Indonesia with 433 passengers and 26 crew had an engine failure.

Engine failures are becoming all to common at QANTAS. Off-shoring, contracting out and cost-cutting by QANTAS are compromising engineering maintenance standards. Cheap maintenance will catch up with QANTAS and beckon its tragic ruin. Low-cost carriers and high altitude don't mix.
CEO Alan Joyce's management policy of cheap maintenance is not an ethical competitive strategy for a public airline; it is a deceptive public time bomb.

Immigrants calling for more immigrants - dare one criticise and we will brand them 'RACIST'!

Australia's alternating Liberal/Labor (Laboral) governments accept all comers because they have become conditioned to be fearful of the racist slur automatically cast by immigrant lobby groups like the Federation of Ethnic Communities' Councils of Australia.

Australia's mass media is constantly bombarded by propaganda condemning any criticism of immigrants or any calls to reduce immigration. And guess who's driving the propaganda - the immigrants who want more of their country folk arriving and who protest 'stuff assimilation - we'll retain our nationality in Australia!

Hallowe'en is a traditional respect and reverence for our ancestors

Hallowe'en is an ancient pagan/Celtic festival originated in Ireland and held in respect for the dead - our recent and previous ancestors. Traditionally, it involves an evening feast to honour one's ancestors. It is held on the evening of the last day of October - a time in the northern hemisphere season at the end of summer and before the onset of winter.

Jack-o' Lantern is a carved pumpkin associated with the pagan Hallowe'en feast. The tradition across traditional Britain, Ireland and Celtic Europe was to represent the ghostly flickering light over peat bogs ('ignis fatuus') collected at night for traditional turf (peat) fuel heating.

Greens' dilution of their conservation effort

If one checks the policies of the Australian Greens Party ('The Greens') on its website - of their 44 policies, some 28 are NOT directly related to environmental conservation, but instead 'social justice'. So where is the so-called 'Greens' Party headed and if most of their policies are NOT concentrated on core green conservation - does this political party deserve to retain its morally mandate for driving the 'green agenda' and should it morally brand itself big G 'Green'?

'Reverse Racism' incites 'Reactionary Racism' - it's a primitive human response

The 'Laboral'* policy of immigrant favouritism is Reverse Racism. It is discriminatory against local people and their traditional way of life. It is cultural treason. In Australia, when an immigrant gets into a position of influence (management, politics), favouritism handed to the immigrant's countrymen and women (i.e. jobs) should not be ignored by Australia's anti-discrimination laws, but it is. Minority groups have become the darlings of anti-discrimination and can do no wrong in the eyes of politically correct law makers.

But immigrant favouritism is a dangerous policy that has already undermined social cohesion in Australia. Cronulla in 2005 was a warning to governments. Heed it and curb the immigration and listen to the locals!

Geert Wilders - not politically correct, but culturally defensive

"As a Dutch, a European and a Western politician, my responsibility is primarily to the Dutch people, to the Europeans and the West." - Geert Wilders.

'Islamic correctness, which criminalizes any criticism of Islam, is a rising force in the world, and not merely in Muslim-majority countries. Even in traditionally tolerant Holland, a combination of misguided liberal multiculturalism and a fear of violence from immigrants has led to a sometimes farcical prosecution. This past Friday (15th Oct 2010), Dutch prosecutors asked the presiding judges to acquit Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders on all charges of inciting hate and discrimination arising from his comments on Islam.

Victorian Greens vague in countering Brumby's VC71 'Big Victoria Manifesto'

Victoria - the place to be? - for bloody whom?


With the VC71 land use planning amendment, clearly the Victorian Brumby Government is hell bent on accommodating immigration hoards regardless of triple-bottom line impacts - economical viability, social equity, ecological integrity.

Yet the Victorian Greens, while tokenly supportive of triple bottom line principles and the desire for limits on urban growth; true to form, remain idealistic and motherhood, with no shovel-ready strategy nor costed programmes.

Corporate media blogs only serve to stymie dissent

Try writing to the daily newspaper, or commenting on a Murdoch News Limited newspaper blog or to a Fairfax newspaper blog, or even on an ABC Radio programme blog.

There, feel better? So what have you gained? Well you have perhaps vented spleen, so gained personal gratification. But another day another paper and reader memories are short. Soon the blog comment section will be 'closed' and inaccessible. So what then have you really gained? Has anyone read it? Will what you've written have any impact, even if people did read it? Will your comments contribute in anyway to an issue?

Climate Change is 1% of the problem, but 99% of the excuse

Blaming human overpopulation for the earth's ills does not come easy to humans, especially to those self-righteously but religiously conditioned to traditional procreation; far more palatable to blame some external force for human damage - easier to blame 'climate change'.

'Sustainable' has become abused corporate greenwash, so bring back ye old 'Triple Bottom Line'

The once rather wholesome term 'sustainable' has become misappropriated and abused by the Corporate Sector - aka 'big business' and 'corporatised government'. The term has been bandied around by those employed with communications degrees (aka 'spin doctors') to mean anything they want it to mean.

So in order to drag the Corporate Sector to social and environmental accountability, it is preferable to instead use the once popular but clearer term 'Triple Bottom Line' - a 1990s term which seems to have been conveniently forgotten.

Nationalism is a domestic reaction to immigration invasion

Nationalism is a domestic reaction to foreign invasion (be it militarily or by mass immigration) and the consequential displacement of the local population - real or perceived.

Foreigners visiting are guests and are welcome. But foreigners arriving as permanent settlers threaten to compete with the territory and rights of the local ancestral population - again, real or perceived. So any immigration programme warrants prior approval by the local population, and sensitive and respectful settling, adjustment, communication and time and space for assimilation to integrate.

Low Cost Airline Menace: Once Qantas Crashes Goodbye Qantas Reputation, Goodbye Qantas

Qantas is proudly Australia's national airline with the highest standards of aviation and an unsurpassed reputation for air safety, quality and service. So why jeopardise this and risk everything by competing on price?

Today passengers on a Sydney-bound Qantas jet rocked by an exploding engine Thursday described how the plane felt like it had hit a "speed bump" and showered flames and sparks like fireworks. The Qantas Boeing 747-400 had to turn back to San Francisco about half an hour into Monday's flight after an engine failed, blasting a large hole in its casing. This is not the first safety incident involving Qantas. Has the 'low cost' mentality breached its airline safety across Qantas and JetStar?

Families deserve maximum government support up to two children, then none!

Sex is a voluntary act, therefore children are discretionary.
In an already grossly overcrowded planet, the human motivation to have many children in order to support a family is a backward primitive tradition that is an unsustainable, selfish burden and impost on the planet. But it is clearly the responsibility of governments to control.

The key problem is that delinquent governments ignoring their family size excesses and their population excesses keep receiving generous hand outs from the global community such as the United Nations and the World Bank - as if to confirm - it's ok, keep breeding!


Free and Fair Elections? With the major parties luring wealthy donors, money votes!

Dr Joo-Cheong Tham, a legal scholar and campaign finance expert at the University of Melbourne, has just had his new book published by UNSW Press called:

'Money and Politics: The democracy we can't afford'

The book highlights in Australian politics, the massive private donations made to the major politcial parties - Labor, Liberals, Nationals and The Greens. It highlights that some $60 million has been spent on election advertising toward the 2010 federal election, of that $40 million by Labor and Liberal parties - no wonder they get re-elected.

Where are the policies to address Australia's most harmful issue - Immigrated Overpopulation?

Immigrated (human) overpopulation driving Gang Gang cockatoo extinction

Australia's greatest social, environmental and economic problems are 'root driven' by immigrated human overpopulation. Both Gillard's & Abbott's 'sustainable population' is hollow headline spin. Both are committed to economic growth, because they know no better. Both are committed to encouraging skilled immigration because if is a cheaper bandaid measure for industries not prepared to invest in local vocational training. So what political parties have a serious policy commitment to stemming Australia's harmful excessive immigration?

When Unelected Factions become Puppeteers of Government - Ch 5

Chapter 5: Factional plotting

As 2003 drew to a close and following Carr’s ‘generational change’ reforms in his Cabinet, in December some twenty-four NSW Labor MPs comprising the Right’ rival splinter factions - the Terrigals and Trogs met for dinner. They “quietly left the Macquarie Street precinct to dine together across town” at the Southern Italian restaurant, 'al Ponte', at Harbourside, Darling Harbour.

They voiced their anger about Carr’s cabinet reshuffle, his overhaul of the ministries, the blood letting of departmental heads by Carr’s new team (Della Bosca, Knowles, Costa, Egan) and over Carr’s new policies such as his new tax on poker machines , which had attracted outrage from the influential club industry. Both Terrigal chiefs Eddie Obeid and Joe Tripodi had been denied a ministry. The sense of injustice over Carr’s cronyism and desire for populism fueled a desire for factional vengeance brewed for two years after Carr's March 2003 election win.

[Previous Chapter ]

Gillard is Rudd in drag; Abbott is Howard's protégé. It's 2007 take 2. I've already 'absentee' voted.

If Gillard is not a rehash of the hollow Rudd, who hoodwinked us into the false hope of the 2007 pork barrelling and spun that hollow 2020 Summit; Gillard's absence of maxims and deadlines for Australia's population/immigration targets only confirms voters ought to presume more of the same.

Ordinary voters need to detox from this election bender.

Only the political parties, their advertisers and their media allies stand to benefit - like clubs that own the pokies.

Population Puzzle - initial comment

ABC TV's Tony Jones' current affairs debate this evening provided firstly prominent Australian, Dick Smith, with a heart felt concern about the uncontrolled, unplanned immigration surge impacting Australia, then a rigorous but too brief a debate from nevertheless a fair cross section of what appeared to be informed observers. Useful issues were presented from many quarters.

One key observation is that Dick Smith, who dared to initiate the debate and invest much in the documentary, insightfully concluded that at least Australia is mature enough to start publicly debating the subject. What needs to be thought through next is a national plan for population into the medium term future. Well done Dick Smith for your leadership on this critical issue!

Boycott charities until donations linked to conditional birth control and wealthy high-birth nations forced to fund their excess

One of our CanDoBetter commenters, 'RichB', has highlighted the site Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. This is a visionary site! As more globally-aware people begin to question the 20th Century 'growth-only' tenet, alternative ideals such a 'Low Population Planet', deserve to be considered and debated. But where to start? One practical moral campaign that would immediately start curbing the out-of-control human birth explosion would be to lobby against the funding requests of charities supporting countries that have high birth rates.

The Greens will remain marginalised while they themselves marginalise and idealise

The reasons The Greens remain a marginal alternative party are:

1. They exclude those not ideologically 'green', so alienation keeps them alienated from the mainstream

2. They do not translate their idealistic ideology into pragmatic shovel-ready policy initiatives with dollar values and immediate costed implementation plans; so they remain perceived as a futurist think tank, not regarded as a real-time alternative executive government.

LibLab simpletons suffer a dearth of vision for Australia

Two weeks out from a federal election and the range and depth and vision on the two major parties - the LibLabs is woefully simplistic and shortsighted. Both are selfishly limited to an 'ends justifies the means' approach purely to get elected. Both are indulging in election-term economics, lobbying marginal seats, pork barreling the swinging voter and trying to differentiate themselves from each other. Neither are relevant to the future governance of Australia.
