Because there is no global warming anyway.
Significant in the legislation is the amendments by Clive Palmer’s PUP enforcing saving be passed on to consumers of electricity and gas.

Jonathan Moylan had his own Mega Mosque moment when he created a parody email system called ANZcorporate and sent out fake press releases claiming a col mining project had lost it line of credit from ANZ, of course the share price when tumbling because all this is fake money and can disappear in an instant. Then the banksters got angry that people were figuring out their dirty tricks, his ‘roumortrage’ (rumor and arbitrage) had done real damage, but he unlike banksters had refused to take monetary advantage from it all.
Court case ensues, found guilty but unlikely to face jail because these kinds of finance crimes always have precedent and are usually accompanied by light sentences.
Amazing the kind of damage you can do with a few dollars, a clever idea and stone cold bluff.
Because absolutely nothing can be a real cool hand.

Here are some of the main articles of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights to which a number of countries, including Australia, India , China , most of Europe and South America voted in favour.
- All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
- Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
- Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
- No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
- No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
- Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.
- All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
- Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.
- No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
- Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.
A number of Islamic countries originally also voted in favour of the declaration (whereas Israel did not), however, since the Eighties they have declared that the UDOHR contradicts Sharia Law (No surprises there, having your right hand chopped off for adultery is a violation of articles 2 and 5 , for example.)
“In 1982, the Iranian representative to the United Nations, Said Rajaie-Khorassani, said that the Declaration was “a secular understanding of the Judeo-Christian tradition” which could not be implemented by Muslims without conflict with Sharia.“
“What needs to be pointed out to those who uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be the highest, or sole, model, of a charter of equality and liberty for all human beings, is that given the Western origin and orientation of this Declaration, the “universality” of the assumptions on which it is based is – at the very least – problematic and subject to questioning. Furthermore, the alleged incompatibility between the concept of human rights and religion in general, or particular religions such as Islam, needs to be examined in an unbiased way.“
Interesting that countries like China or India have also signed up and last time I checked they were not Western countries, however, their spiritual traditions like Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism would be very much in accordance with the declaration of human rights, therefore refuting that it is a Western concept.
Of course every country is guilty of acting against the declaration of human rights, human nature being what it is.
What follows on Wikipedia is a good example of moral relativism :
A strong argument can be made that the current formulation of international human rights constitutes a cultural structure in which western society finds itself easily at home … It is important to acknowledge and appreciate that other societies may have equally valid alternative conceptions of human rights.”
What rights are we talking about here? The right to kill unbelievers and apostates? The right to hurt, oppress and subjugate women in the name of religion and law? the right to imprison and torture people for private transgressions like “adultery” or marrying a person your family did not choose?
Why not the right to eat people and sacrifice babies for “Satanists”? Why not the right to rape 5 year olds for paedophiles?
Of course moral relativism in many ways is a good thing, as it allows people to express their individuality, creativity and culture.But when take to extremes, moral relativism becomes a license for harm, torture and murder.
This video and related articles of Pope Francis accused of eating babies and performing satanic masses has lately made the rounds in activist circles. Clearly these accusations are ridiculous and unfounded, no matter how you might feel about Catholicism . However, when a friend recently shared this so-called evidence, I just commented that I don’t believe it. There is a lot of stuff being shared on the internet that I don’t believe and I just use whatever common sense and analytical skills I have to discern truth from fiction. However, one thing I did not accuse my friend of was spreading hate, although, when you think about it, anybody who ever writes or shares something critical is potentially spreading hate.
You are allowed to criticise everything from politicians to puppet masters, Christians to Jews. The Catholic Church has been in the news for accusations of paedophilia for quite some time now and rightly so.. To criticise something you think is abusive is a human right. At least it should be.
Strangely though, that right goes away when it comes to Islam. As soon as you dare speak out against Islam you are accused of spreading hate and being a right wing , racist bigot. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence that there are massive human rights abuses going on under Islam and Sharia law, which is about to be fully instated in so-called modern countries like Malaysia.
I don’t understand why some activists are confused about occupymelbourne.net being critical of Islam. We are critical of a lot of human right abuses, Islam is just one of them. It is not being singled out as the only topic on this website, but presents a major issue to a regional community at this time.
And clearly, the government has again proven that it doesn’t want to listen and that people have no right to decide what they want in their own communities.
As for the people who are accusing this website to be a splinter group from the “real” Occupy Melbourne : It’s quite funny how others claim to be the leaders of a leaderless movement which they pronounced dead well over a year ago, leaving the rest, who wanted to continue, to do whatever they want with the name. Now they are coming out of the woodwork to say that this is not the real Occupy Melbourne, which is presumably still dead, even though it continues on a weekly basis with OM Free Kitchen.
In addition, it must be said that there are many voices within the OM community, who cannot and should not have to agree on everything. Occupy is not an organisation , nor is it a party with the associated groupthink,
Hi JS, we have decided to not approve your comment as it is misleading and contained numerous errors.
Firstly we are not a socialist group, if you wish to review our thoughts on socialism please click the following link.
You can use the search feature on the left to find our previous articles by keyword search. This media outlet has been the official media site of Occupy Melbourne since March 9 2013. The ‘.org’, twitter and facebook groups were hijacked and refused to respond to the wishes of the occupiers. We decided to remain anonymous to keep our ego’s out of the way of the message.
If as a lawyer working for the government, you are going to post general disparaging comments against activist groups from your Facebook account from work when you are ‘working’ for the government, I really need to ask: Are you skiving off from doing your job or is this your actual job?
I mean seriously are you a paid troll? Because it really looks like it.
Or this this just massive cognitive dissonance?
If you know how to look through the media mayhem we produce you’ll realize we do some serious investigative journalism, that’s why when we talked about Mega Mosques in Melbourne the mainstream media listened.
Don’t ask how we know, but we have proof.
We suggest you reread you copy of 1984.
Should we expose the name of the suspected paid troll? We’ll do a poll from the comments to this article.
