Environy

Near my house there are two large plastic signs telling me I should Vote Greens - which someone has thoughtfully nailed to a couple of trees. The trees were not available for comment at time of publication.

Anyway, Bernie Slattery has the inside scoop on what colour the Greens really are. Hint: You might as well call them the Watermelon Party.*

Don't miss their 40-point plan for new and increased taxes. including a 33% surcharge (on top of the current top marginal rate of around 50%) for people-who-earn-more-than-is-good-for-them. And the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by - wait for it - 100%. Which means that all those cuddly animals will have to go - after all, we can't have them breathing, now can we?

I've touched on Bob Brown's insane policies before. This is what Slatts has to say:

They are political extremists whose policies borrow equally from the textbooks of Hitler and Stalin.

Of course, Australians are too sensible to put up with totalitarianism and should the Greens achieve any measure of power it would be short-lived.

But remember Whitlam. Much damage can be achieved in a short time by ideologues and their useful idiots.

* Okay: Green on the outside and red on the inside.**
** And I won't mention that the leader of the Australian Greens is Bob Brown.

1 Pixy, Problem is, y'all don't have much of a safety net. Y'all have to rely on being to sensible to elect totalitarians, but once they're in powerr you don't have much recourse. We're not that much better off over here, but we have a bit more of a safety net in case something horrible does happen. & the safety net I speak of is an armed populace. Y'all's aren't completely disarmed yet, but the capapcity for resitance has been significantly diminished the last decade or two. So for y'alls sake I do hope the voting thing works out, cause if it doesn't there simply won't be much of a recourse left. Oh, I hate the watermelon comparison - i think it's demeaning to that form of melon & possibly all produce anywhere. :)
