Quote from Richard Attenborough

There is a LIGHT in this world. A healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometime lose sight of this force when there is suffering, and too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.? Richard Attenborough A man who, probably more than anyone else, has focused our eyes on the beauty and wonder which surrounds us.

Extend Banking Royal Commission Petition

Banking is an integral part of everyone's life. Australians all depend on a fair and accessible banking system. A criminal finance sector affects each of us regardless of how much money we may have in the bank.

Public revelations, investigative journalism and the Royal Commission to date have identified bankers involved in; fraud, forgery, money laundering, rate rigging, drug trafficking, dealing with terrorism funds, superannuation rip-offs, financial planning abuses, and insurance scandals. Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Bankers prefer us in debt, our children in debt and our governments in debt. This affects everyone`s quality of life - cost of living pressure, mortgage stress and a sub-optimal retirement. We need meaningful reforms now.

Rather than providing a relatively simple service of utility to the people and country, the banks - with government blessing - are putting profits and power ahead of the country’s interests.

Commissioner Hayne has the option to ask for more powers and time. We need to make our voices heard to help him make that decision.

The Turnbull Government refused to initiate a Banking Royal Commission until the banks authorised their preferred limited inquiry. The aim appeared to be a short inquiry to be done and dusted before the next election.

If you want a fair banking system, sign our petition to Extend the Banking Royal Commission now. Commissioner Hayne along with three or more independent Commissioners must fully expose the crimes and dysfunction plaguing the finance system before he can recommend meaningful reforms that will change the culture and give all Australians a fair go.

Say No To TPP II
Say No To TPP II

The National Union of Workers posted on Facebook:

The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (TPP) has passed its first hurdle in parliament with the Federal Labor Party giving their support in the lower house last week.

The National Union of Workers is deeply concerned about the effects this legislation will have on workers and on our democracy if passed.

Twelve countries signed up to the TPP in February 2016, representing roughly 40% of the world’s economic output. The deal was designed to create a single trading zone, like the EU, to allow goods and information to be passed between countries more freely. The claim was that opening up trade borders would create more jobs.

However, TPP is a deal that puts the profit of large corporations before the safety and security of workers. It would intensify competition between different countries’ labour forces and undermine job security and pay rates for working people in Australia. It would pave the way for companies to sue governments that change their policy in areas like health, education and worker’s rights. TPP would also make it harder for a government to favour state-provided services over the involvement of private companies.

In short, the TPP begins a process to undermine the social protections for all citizens while big business makes bigger profits and pays less tax.

The NUW has raised concerns around the ratification of TPP in the past and, like many in our movement, are deeply disappointed that this anti-worker legislation is back on the table. It should not be possible for a private company to sue our government for making choices that improve the lives of people in this country.

In the interests of every Australian the ALP must reconsider their support of TPP, rejecting it when it reaches the Senate – the promise of extra protections when in power does not negate the damage this bill will cause to whole communities in Australia.

One commenter wrote, “This is Shorten at his best. Labor stopped being for the worker years ago.“

Another wrote, “Why do people think Labour is any different to the Libs? All work for the same Corporation folks....“

We Should Reward Production
We Should Reward Production

We should reward production and penalise non-production otherwise when we do the opposite, all we will get is non-production.

The Roman empire perished due to the gradual erosion of ethical, strong individuals who made the civilisation what it was. Eventually fed corn and entertained with spectacles in the Coluseum they no longer had what it took to even defend the city let alone bring civilisation to the rest of the world. Thus enetered a dark age in western history.

No similarity at all to what George Soros is helping fund with the destruction of America, the psychiatrists have been hard at it (the destruction of morals) since 1947, the government importing non-workers and their familes and paying them $4,000 a month and with the current vaccine induced autism rate predicted to be 50% of the population within 30 years, what do you think we are headed for?


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
