It is, or would be funny - if it weren't so serious considering what I'm hearing about the new prime minister, Tony Abbot, of Australia and his conservative addenda that includes discarding laws to protect the climate.

I agree but you gotta admit though it is bloody funny!

Queensland's Premier C. Newman doesn't like his own bikie laws.

Queensland Premier Campbell Newman says he doesn't like his own government's tough anti-bikie laws.

But he says they're necessary for now and must, by law, be reviewed within three years of their introduction.

"The parliament has to look at these laws (within three years) and decide if they should still be there," Mr Newman told 4BC Radio on Monday.

A stupid law suit

Pimp sues Nike over 'deadly' shoes

A pimp serving a 100-year sentence for second-degree assault is suing Nike for $100 million claiming his shoes should have come with a warning.

Sirgiorgiro Clardy stomped on a man’s head for not paying one of his prostitutes.

He now says his Air Jordans should have come with a warning stating they could be used as a deadly weapon.

Read the rest here in a Rag in West Aus.

“In a world divided between haves and have-nots, between postmodern and pre-modern, and between those for whom God is dead and those for whom God remains omnipresent, expecting coercion to produce reconciliation, acceptance or submission represents the height of folly,” – Andrew Bacevich.

Moderates Are Fleeing the Republican Party, But That Doesn't Mean A...

| Wed Jan. 8, 2014 8:51 PM GMT

Gallup reports that the number of people self-identifying as independents has increased dramatically since 2008:

There are two things to say about this. First, this trend most likely represents moderate Republicans who no longer want to identify with the modern tea-party-ized GOP, and are now calling themselves independents. But as John Sides points out, this doesn't mean much in terms of voting behavior. These folks might call themselves independents, but they mostly vote the same way they always have.

Second, it goes a long way toward explaining that Pew survey last week, which found that belief in evolution had plummeted from 54 percent to 43 percent among Republicans over the past four years. If you dig into the details of that poll, the decline is actually a little more moderate than it seems, and it's probably explained mostly by the fact that so many moderate Republicans have left the party. When you remove a big chunk of people who believe in evolution, the group that's left will have a higher percentage of deniers even though no one's beliefs have actually changed.

Bottom line: moderates are abandoning the Republican Party. The remaining rump is more conservative, and this certainly affects the behavior of Republican politicians in Washington. However, it doesn't mean that anyone's views have changed or that anyone's voting patterns have changed.

Noah's Ark Theme Park Is Sinking

That Noah's Ark theme park is sinking
A Northern Kentucky theme park to be built around a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark may sink unless investors purchase about $29 million in unrated municipal bonds by Feb. 6. In December, the city of Williamstown issued taxable debt for affiliates of the Christian nonprofit Answers in Genesis, data compiled by Bloomberg show. Even though $26.5 million of securities have been sold, the project needs to sell at least $55 million in total to avoid triggering a redemption of all the bonds, Ken Ham, the nonprofit’s president, said in an email to supporters Thursday. Without the proceeds, construction funding will fall short, he said. “We still need those Ark supporters who weren’t able to purchase the Ark bonds at closing to prayerfully consider participating in a secondary bond delivery at the level they had indicated to us,” Ham said. “Will you please step out in faith with us?”

I think the president of Uruguay is a hero on the national stage.
