The climate change hoax has collapsed. A devastating series of research papers has just been published, revealing that human activity can account for no more than a .01°C rise in global temperatures, meaning that all the human activity targeted by radical climate change alarmists — combustion engines, airplane flights, diesel tractors — has virtually no measurable impact on the temperature of the planet.
Finnish scientists spearheaded the research, releasing a paper entitled, “No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change.”
The paper explains that IPCC analysis of global temperatures suffers from a glaring error — namely, failure to account for “influences of low cloud cover” and how it impacts global temperatures. Natural variations in low cloud cover, which are strongly influenced by cosmic radiation’s ability to penetrate Earth’s atmosphere due to variations in the strength of our planet’s magnetosphere, account for nearly all changes in global temperature, the researchers explain.
As this chart reveals, more cloud cover is inversely related to temperature. In other words, clouds shield the surface of the Earth from the sun, providing shade cover cooling, while a lack of clouds results in more warming:
Cloud cover accounts for the real changes in global temperatures
This is further supported by researchers at Kobe University in Japan who published a nearly simultaneous paper that reveals how changes in our planet’s magnetic field govern the intensity of solar radiation that reaches the lower atmosphere, causing cloud formation that alters global temperatures.hat study, published in Nature, is called, “Intensified East Asian winter monsoon during the last geomagnetic reversal transition.”
It states: Records of suborbital-scale climate variation during the last glacial and Holocene periods can be used to elucidate the mechanisms of rapid climate changes… At least one event was associated with a decrease in the strength of the Earth’s magnetic field. Thus, climate records from the MIS 19 interglacial can be used to elucidate the mechanisms of a variety of climate changes, including testing the effect of changes in geomagnetic dipole field strength on climate through galactic cosmic ray (GCR)-induced cloud formation…
In effect, cosmic rays which are normally deflected via the magnetosphere are, in times of weak or changing magnetic fields emanating from Earth itself, able to penetrate further into Earth’s atmosphere, causing the formation of low-level clouds which cover the land in a kind of “umbrella effect” that shades the land from the sun, allowing cooling to take place. But a lack of clouds makes the surface hotter, as would be expected.
This natural phenomenon is now documented to be the primary driver of global temperatures and climate, not human activity.
Burn all the oil you want, in other words, and it’s still just a drop in the bucket compared to the power of the sun and other cosmic influences. All the fossil fuel consumption in the world barely contributes anything to actual global temperatures, the researchers confirmed.
As they explain, the IPCC’s climate models are wildly overestimating the influence of carbon dioxide on global temperatures:…the [IPCC] models fail to derive the influences of low cloud cover fraction on the global temperature. A too small natural component results in a too large portion for the contribution of the greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. That is why J. KAUPPINEN AND P. MALMI IPCC represents the climate sensitivity more than one order of magnitude larger than our sensitivity 0.24°C. Because the anthropogenic portion in the increased CO2 is less than 10%, we have practically no anthropogenic climate change. The low clouds control mainly the global temperature.
The entire ‘climate change’ hoax is a fraud
Carbon dioxide, in other words, isn’t the “pollutant” that climate change alarmists have long claimed it to be. CO2 won’t destroy the planet and barely has any effect on global temperatures (the IPCC’s estimate of its effect is, according to Finnish researchers, about one order of magnitude too large, or ten times the actual amount).
In fact, NASA was forced to recently admit that carbon dioxide is re-greening the Earth on a massive scale by supporting the growth of rainforests, trees and grasslands. See these maps showing the increase in green plant life, thanks to rising CO2:
Importantly, reducing our global consumption of fossil fuels will have virtually no impact on global temperatures. The far bigger governor of climate and temperatures is the strength and configuration of Earth’s magnetosphere, which has always been in flux since the formation of the planet billions of years ago. The weaker the magnetosphere, the more cosmic rays penetrate the atmosphere, resulting in the generation of clouds, which shield the planet’s surface from the sun. Thus, a weaker magnetosphere causes global cooling, while a stronger magnetosphere results in global warming, according to this research. This phenomenon is called the “Svensmark Effect.”
This suggests that the increase in cosmic rays was accompanied by an increase in low-cloud cover, the umbrella effect of the clouds cooled the continent, and Siberian high atmospheric pressure became stronger. Added to other phenomena during the geomagnetic reversal — evidence of an annual average temperature drop of 2-3 degrees Celsius, and an increase in annual temperature ranges from the sediment in Osaka Bay — this new discovery about winter monsoons provides further proof that the climate changes are caused by the cloud umbrella effect.
The “war on carbon” is derived from sheer stupidity, arrogance and scientific illiteracy
The extreme alarmism of climate change lunatics — best personified by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ insistence that humanity will be destroyed in 12 years if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels — is all based on nothing but fearmongering media propaganda and faked science. (The IPCC and NOAA both routinely fudge temperature data to try to create a warming “trend” where none exists.)
It’s all a massive, coordinated fraud, and the mainstream media deliberately lies to the public about climate change to push anti-free market schemes that would destroy the U.S. economy while transferring literally trillions of dollars into the pockets of wealthy globalists as part of a “carbon tax” scheme.
Yet carbon isn’t the problem at all. And the “war on carbon” is a stupid, senseless policy created by idiots, given that humans are carbon-based lifeforms, meaning that any “war on carbon” is a war on humanity.

Has “wokeness” ruined everything? That’s the question which spurred a podcast by Ash Sarkar, a twenty-something British academic media darling who contributes to The Guardian and The Independent and is featured in this latest post by British YouTuber, Sargon of Akkad.
First, Sarkar asks, “What is woke culture?” pretending exasperation and ignorance. Later in the interview, she opines:
“Woke is accepting that LGBT identities are valid and should be protected under the law; that woke culture is an acknowledge-ment that racialized outcomes, reproduced through institutions in society and people of color measurably are treated differently… what I want, at an interpersonal level is understanding, empathy and solidarity and at a political level, I want the pursuit of redistributive goals, whether that’s power, whether that’s wealth, whether that’s land, in order to pursue aims of social justice, along class, gender and race lines.”
Sargon of Akkad agrees. “This is actually an excellent definition of woke culture, because it shows us that we are dealing with a radical movement, that violates some of the fundamental values of modern, Liberal Britain. Primarily, that we do not think of arbitrary characteristics, like race, gender and anything else should be factors that contribute to outcomes, wherever possible and that we believe that a person’s private property should, in fact be protected by the state, using the law and not taken away from a person by the state, instead.
“Appropriating people’s wealth and land, then re-distributing it along race, gender and class lines seems like an aberrant violation of those values and would naturally be seen as unethical by someone who is not a part of woke culture and follows the traditional values of modern Britain.”
Like Saikat Chakrabarti, AOC’s race-baiting svengali and former chief-of-staff, who’s done so much to inject a new brand of hysterical, racial divisiveness into the American political process, Sarkar is also the child of Bangladeshi immigrants. Both project ancestral traumas onto the West while strategically weaponizing White Guilt to advance their goal of Global Communism.
Neither complains about Bangladesh, where Islam is the state religion and homosexuality is still punishable by life imprisonment; where the Islamization of that country was defined by overthrowing the Varna caste system, the most skin color-obsessed means of social control ever devised, lasting millennia and still going strong throughout South Asia – now replaced with its Muslim version of “Ashrafs” who claim superior status derived from Persian, Turkic and Arab ancestry or alleged descent from Muhammad.
They don’t complain about Bangladesh because it doesn’t have the capital that they want to see “redistributed” along identitarian lines.
This, while they subscribe to “Luxury Communism”. Sarkar’s boss, Aaron Bastani wrote a manifesto about it. Luxury Communism is technocratic utopianism that’s about “fully embracing automation” and how technology will reduce the value of commodities – food, healthcare and housing – towards zero and how synthetic biology will prolong life and virtually eliminate disease.
Such things may indeed come to pass – but it sure as Hell won’t be because of a Global Communism!
These people are young and so steeped in ideology that they don’t see how Big Tech, influenced by Marxist and Postmodernist thought has already created a monopolistic combine of censorship, surveillance, social engineering, resulting in our current stealth digital totalitarianism with a corporatist, “social justice” veneer.
The unprecedented collaboration between Big Tech, with the mass media and the intelligence agencies to saturate the infosphere with their chosen narrative and to ban all others is decidedly not taking us to the “world of liberty, luxury and happiness”, of which the wokesters dream.
31 deaths and 2600 burnt out homes has not yet woken up governments as Canberra is again threatened by wildfire
by staff writers
The futility of using aircraft to impede large bushfires has been borne home after a converted military C-130 Hercules four prop tanker crashed near Cooma (NSW) killing all three American crewmen.
Dense smoke and poor visibility were blamed by authorities for causing the accident.
“Tragically, there appears to be no survivors as a result of the crash down in the Snowy Monaro area,” Shane Fitzsimmons, the Rural Fire Services Commissioner for New South Wales, said at a news conference.
The tragedy brings the death toll from the blazes to at least 31 since September. The fires have also destroyed more than 2,600 homes and razed more than 10.4 million hectares (25.7 million acres).
New age, politically correct firefighting techniques which include aircraft have proven ineffective in fighting large bush fires.
Tens of millions of dollars have been wasted in highly dangerous water and fire retardant bombing, giving only false hope to property owners.
While the retardant might slow down a fire the evidence from the firefront shows water only temporarily slows a hot fire with a several kilometre long front, particularly when the Hercules can drop only 15,000 litres at a time.
The aircraft has to land at the closest suitable airfield, fill up with water then take off to the fire ground, a round trip of 90 minutes or more depending on the distance from the airstrip.
These aircraft cost the federal government more than $15,000 an hour each to operate.
The tried and proven method of constructing wide fire breaks with dozers and graders then back burning has become politically incorrect and almost no footage of machinery building fire breaks has been shown by any of the television networks.
The fire services and government instead ensure the wider viewing audience sees plenty of shots of aerial bombers dropping pink retardant which in reality is a public relations, conditioning exercise to imbue the public.
Struggling volunteer firemen on the ground had no chance of stopping any of these huge conflagrations without constructed firebreaks.
Anecdotal evidence reveals the use of machinery at these mega-fires was very limited. In years past there would and should have been dozens of graders and dozers making breaks.
Desk jockeys of the Fire and Emergency Services had no idea how to fight these fires. They should have known months before that fire breaks were needed. What happened?
Regional firefighters would have informed the hierarchy of the impending danger of excessive fuel loads and should have done something about it like hazard reduction burning from fire breaks.
A thousand or more dwellings of the 2600 destroyed were surrounded by eucalyptus trees and dry grass of any length was growing up to the back door in many cases.
Fire can run along 10mm high dry grass in house yards even though it gives the appearance of bare ground if the wind and weather conditions are right and the only way it can be stopped is with a fire break and water. There were almost no breaks around house yards.
Trees growing around homes for 100 metres should have been felled and pushed away. There was no preventative preparation. Why not?
If you want trees growing out of your lounge room then expect to get burnt out.
Insurance companies would be mugs to pay for losses under these circumstances. Sue the state governments.
Fire survivors who have lost everything should place the blame squarely on the political party duopoly, Greens and Bob Brown and in some cases themselves for a lack of preparation.
Volunteer firefighters should have objected to the lack of preparation. They should have refused to go into some of these danger zones. Instead six are now dead.
So-called ‘climate change’ has absolutely nothing to do with the size and intensity of these fires.

How to stop 5G: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCXvlPOxeqk&feature=emb_logo
Telstra, Optus, Vodaphone and the Australian Government have enhanced the Deep State depopulation program in earnest by rolling out dangerous 5G wireless networks throughout the suburbs of every city in the country without releasing any independent safety studies.
With towers placed 100 metres apart there will be blanket coverage of EMF at more than 100 times the recommended strength over every human being in the cities.
In this video UN employee Claire Edwards of the Vienna International Centre told the UN Secretary General staff had been exposed to “off the scale” WiFi and phone booster radiation.
She said public exposure at her worksite is one quintillion (18 zeros) above natural background radiation according to Professor Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
“The highly dangerous biological effects effects of EMF have been documented by thousands of studies since 1932 indicating we may be facing a global health catastrophe,” Editor and Trainer in Intercultural Writing, Claire Edwards told Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
“5G technologies must be subjected to an independent health and safety assessment before they are launched anywhere in the world.”
Secretary General Guterres said he is now worried because he had installed these devices in his home.
“I am going to raise this with the WHO (World Health Organisation),” he said.

I was fascinated by Patrick Moore’s comment about CO2 at 150 ppm and how the plants would die. I went and did some research and sure enough he’s right. Here’s a bit from my research –
Atmospheric CO2 is not alarmingly high, it is too low for optimal plant growth and alarmingly low for the survival of carbon-based terrestrial life. The real danger is not too much CO2 – it is CO2 starvation. Over geologic time, CO2 is ~permanently sequestered in carbonate rocks.
Plants evolved at atmospheric CO2 concentrations of 2000 ppm and greater, and many grow best at about 1200 ppm CO2 – about 3 times current levels. That is why greenhouse operators maintain 1000-1200 ppm CO2 in their greenhouses.
Major food crops (except corn) use the C3 photosynthetic pathway, and die at about 150 ppm from CO2 starvation – that is just 30 ppm below the minimum levels during the last Ice Age, which ended just 10,000 years ago – “the blink of an eye” in geologic time. Earth came that close to a major extinction event.
During one of the next Ice Ages, unless there is massive human intervention, atmospheric CO2 will decline to below 150 ppm and that will be the next major extinction event – not just for a few species but for ~all complex terrestrial carbon-based life forms.

The cauldron of discontent that is the climate change debate alternates between simmer and boil over, depending on what new ingredients are tossed in. The combination of drought, water shortages and bushfires all meant that the cauldron was boiling most of the time and the media was starting to run out of superlatives to describe the situation.
“Crisis” and “catastrophic” have been used to the point that they have almost become meaningless and occasionally apocalyptical.
“Outrage”has also become popular. How dare the Prime Minister allow this to happen?
Around the country groups are calling for “immediate” or “instant” action. Doing his bit to stir the pot is the smug figure of Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese.
So I think the time is right to introduce a new adjective, “hysteria”.
Greta Thumberg gave a master class in theatrically contrived hysteria at the UN.
Some of the people in the latest hysterical outburst are not in the mould of regular rent-a-crowd uni students. Among the Extinction Rebellion activists were middle aged and senior citizens.
As a senior citizen myself, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at their antics.
Hysteria means “emotional excess” or frenzy, irrationality, panic and loss of control, and that really concerns me.
Normally steady sane people are being swept along by the tide of professional activists whose only interest is destabilisation for their own aims under the smokescreen of climate change.
I think it’s time to sit down and take a “Bex”.

Drastic changes to the Lake Eyre Basin Management Plan, proposed by the Queensland Labor Government under new “Pristine Rivers” legislation, could crucify future development in north and western Queensland, Katter’s Australian Party MPs have warned.
Environment Minister Leanne Enoch announced a review into the basin’s management plan just before Christmas, saying the “proposed framework will increase protections for streams and floodplains in the Queensland section of the Lake Eyre Basin”.
Feedback is required by late January, but the public is not allowed to participate in this process.
KAP State Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said the secret proposal, the details of which have so far only been shared with invited stakeholders, could lock up almost of third of Queensland and make much of the state’s prime mining and agricultural land untouchable.
He said the misguided move, aimed at shoring up Labor’s green credentials in Brisbane ahead of the 2020 State Election, would also rip away all economic opportunities open to a vast portion or rural and remote Queensland.
“The Labor Government has time and time again smashed regional, rural and remote Queensland with legislation that suits them in Brisbane but rips opportunity and autonomy away from us,” Mr Katter said.
“So far this term they have given us the reef regulations and the tree-clearing laws, all because of the need to keep feeding the green monster in Brisbane.
“Now this ‘Pristine Rivers’ proposal is their third attack, and it’s being launched ahead of the election campaign.
“All the KAP can say on behalf of these northern and western areas is that we are sick of being the sacrificial lambs to win Green votes in Brisbane.
“There is nothing to stop the State Government right now adjudicating on any development, mining or otherwise, that is inappropriate in an area or detrimental to the environment.
“This is regulation for regulation sake, and like the tree-clearing laws it will be politically-based and centred around flimsy science.”
Mr Katter said it was ludicrous to think that the Labor Government, which is presiding over a huge deficit and high unemployment rates, would put a blanket ban on development across large section of the state.
“Quite frankly, Queenslanders need a new deal for the regions because the current state of affairs is simply not good enough,” he said.
“If they want a fight on this, I will say bring it on because the KAP will give them one.”
KAP Member for Hinchinbrook Nick Dametto said, if the proposed changes were to go ahead, Queensland could never be drought-proofed.
“We have heard a lot of talk over the last few months from the major parties about their plans to ‘drought-proof’ Queensland,” he said.
“If this ‘Pristine Rivers’ legislation gets up, you can kiss that goodbye.
“You can kiss goodbye: any style of the Bradfield Scheme ever taking off, any chance of drought-proofing Queensland and any chance of building an agricultural sector on the other side of the Great Dividing Range which would help western Queensland prosper.”
The KAP said it believes the current review and the “Pristine Rivers” proposal was a broad re-hash of the previous, controversial Wild Rivers legislation that was first introduced by Premier Peter Beattie in 2005.
The party has called on Premier Palaszczuk to make the Lake Eyre Basin Management Plan proposal available to the public, and to extend the timeframe allowed for consultation.

There are times when I feel like a stranger in my own country, the urge to scream in frustration all but overwhelming.
My problem is that I’m not a believer. I don’t believe in man-made climate change and shake my head in bemusement at the people who are presently running through the streets screaming “climate emergency.”
We now live in an age in which if something is said often enough by self-interested parties then it must be true. Anyone who attempts to voice a contrary view is howled down and branded a “denier.”
No one dares to be different. Such is the desperate need to be accepted and on-trend that we will happily go along with any point of view which will be favourably viewed by social media.
The intellectual laziness of the masses is as sad as it is tragic. We have become a nation of unthinking morons which unquestioningly accepts the views of self-anointed “experts” without wondering if their shouted declarations that the end is nigh might just be driven by the urgent need to justify their existence and get their hands on another research grant.
To be a climate denier is to suffer eternal damnation but it is perfectly fine to be a democracy denier as witnessed by the fact that there are large numbers of very noisy people who still can’t accept that Donald Trump is President of the United States and Scott Morrison Prime Minister of Australia.
They weren’t supposed to win. How did this happen? Apparently the Russians rigged the US elections but how Morrison managed to end up in The Lodge remains a mystery. The man’s a Christian, for God’s sake, and doesn’t believe that the world is about to end. Go figure.
Nor do I believe that people who attempt to lie and cheat their way into the country should be allowed to settle here and struggle to understand why people like Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton is pilloried for doing what he is paid to do — protect our borders.
My advice to those with bleeding heart tales who wish to live here? Get in the queue.
Admitting that you admire Dutton for his forthrightness is, of course, akin to confessing to devil worship and not something you would dream of doing in the company of strangers lest you be set upon and tarred and feathered.
I also have no time for the United Nations, a multi-billion dollar club which boasts among its members some of the great hypocrites and pontificators of our time and which seethes with corruption.
Blackfellas should toss their annual moaning event about historical issues and sort out the alcohol, drug and sexual abuse
Australia Day is three months distant so the non-indigenous among us must ready ourselves to be branded as white supremacists celebrating a bloody invasion.
I don’t buy it. Instead of wasting energy moaning about historical wrongs, tackle the alcohol, drug and sexual abuse and poor parenting that denies so many indigenous children a shot at a better life.
This is not a point of view that people publicly express because they know they will be denounced as being racists if they do so. So be it.
Christmas in also coming but don’t mention Jesus or the birth of Christ lest in so doing, you offend someone and that would never do.
I’ll continue to live, then, in my own little offensive, racist, climate denier world but I’ve a feeling that I am not alone. Please feel free to join me.#

I am sending this out far and wide by email and Facebook (see 2 videos below)
I am 79 years old. I have lived through drought and I have lived through bush fires, but NEVER have I seen cars and metal melt and such devastation. Everybody with a brain knows that this is not normal.
You can choose to ignore this, or choose to pass it on, but ultimately the truth will be known.
This is an attack by the New World Order to reduce population and to bring us to our knees, to bring famine and to control every aspect of our lives, including the poisoning of humanity by vaccines.
They do not care who or what they kill.These “people” are either possessed by the devil, or from another planet. There is no way a normal human being would do this.
Choose to speak out, fight against this, or sit back and do nothing and become a slave.
Because of censorship, these videos will probably soon be removed, as being fake.

It is of interest that just on this site alone over 8 years there have been more than a quarter of a million views of our stories about this insidious UN Agreement which has been rigidly adhered to by Queensland and all other state governments since 1992.
Brain-dead News Ltd reporters are claiming a Facebook site shared an Agenda 21 story 30 times. Our articles do this almost on a daily basis. Cairnsnews has a much greater readership than the News Ltd hallmark social rag the Cairns Post and most of its other regional dailies. If this readership is combined with Australian Patriot Radio listeners then suddenly we are big players in the regional media stakes. Robert J Lee, Editor
Ten years ago Australia had five car manufacturers, Ford, GMH, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
Now we have none. All gone overseas and the reason given? Costs were to high. Funny in that the cars we are now importing (Malaysia etc) are no cheaper.
I remember back in 1968 living in Brisbane, when the 3 major cities back then were Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide a nd Adelaide was the Industrial City.
Adelaide – South Australia, was where you went to work in the Iron Ore Industry, or where you could get a job making railway tracks for B.H.P.
You could get a job building ships, submarines, cars, washing machines, fridges, TV’s, Hills hoists, Victa Lawn Mowers or make tyres at Bridgestone tyres.
Lightburn Washing Machine Company even made a car called a Zeta. It was not much of a car, but at least it was Australian and we built it. I worked at Stanvac where we made our own Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and Oil. We had Oil Rigs in Bass Straight, North West Shelf and the Timor Sea. We even had Australian owned Service Stations like (H.C. Sleigh) Golden Fleece and many of us young wanna-be mechanics back then worked as a driveway attendant. (Just like Stanley).
I remember catching a train from the city to Gawler and then on to Freeling, Hamley Bridge, Stockport, Riverton, up to Clare, Gladstone, Laura etc. And all these towns were bustling with activity, and on the weekends they were all open for business. Our shops were filled on every shelf with food and products all proudly made or grown, in Australia. Our fridge was full of Lamb Chops and Steaks because it was cheap as we were a huge Lamb and Beef growing Nation. And once a month Mum would make us all a delicacy! It was called a Sunday Roast Chicken.
I remember when we all had trade skills and high quality tools that would last and last. But most of all we had Mates. We as Australians watched each other’s backs even if we had not met yet, and we all said G’Day to everyone with a smile. Our kids could go anywhere they liked on their bikes, just as long as they were home before dark.
Australia was pretty safe back then. Yes, Australia was once a self supporting nation that had it all. It had Farms that produced our dairy, fruit & vegies and meats etc. And Politicians back then were known as Statesmen and they were voted by the people, for the people, on behalf of the people and did what the people wanted.
We had public utilities owned by us the people, that guaranteed our Electricity, Water and Sewage forever.
No one knew how much the Snowy Mountain Scheme cost, we just built it.
No one knew how much the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Indian-Pacific railway cost!
WE JUST BUILT IT!
Then came CORPORATE GREED.
Now everything above has GONE.
Now we don’t watch each other’s backs anymore but watch each other through security bars, burglar alarms, and security screens.
Now we dob each other in.
Now we import poor quality processed food.
Now we import cheap tools that break just taking them out of the packet they come in.
Now we rely on ships to bring in our fuels.
Now we can’t afford our own Lamb or Beef anymore.
Now we eat steroid pumped chicken just about every day.
Now we import trade skill workers on 457 Visa’s.
Now we have high unemployment as nearly all of our Industry and Manufacturing has gone offshore.
Now we have that many Laws that we have just about outlawed ourselves.
But I guess we need even more laws, so now we will have Sharia Law as well. We now pay for water that falls out of the sky at $3.80 a litre.
Now we have taxes for everything.
Taxes for carbon, taxes for sake of having taxes, (They call them Levy’s).
And don’t forget the newest tax is the ISLAMIC TAX (Halal Certification)
Now here in South Australia in our towns we have Railway Stations and railway tracks, but no trains.
We have Public Bus Stops in our Towns but no buses. We have Hospitals and Clinics but very few Doctors or Nurses.
We all have Mobile Phones, and have little to no reception.
We have Digital TV’s with Bugger all Signal in the country.
And the worst of all, is our once great nation is being sold off, piece by piece to every other country on earth, except us.
Tis very sad but very true! Enjoy whats left while you can?
The Australia we knew when growing up is now STUFFED!!!
