Deportation laws enforced?
Deportation law. We never seem to hear
of this law being enforced. Why?
In my opinion, any migrant who is caught
doing terrorist activities against Australia
should have this law thrown at him. If there
are more family members doing the same
thing, simple, deport the whole family.
The only deportations we tend to hear
about are the young university students
who have over-stayed their study visa.
Back in the early 1950s there were a
lot threatened with deportation, mainly
because their migration to get away from
the second world war and saved their lives
was deemed illegal in the eyes of the then
government. They weren’t terrorists, they
were all workers.
Obama, don’t take the guns
President Barack Obama, the worst
president in the United State of
America’s (USA) history, has now declared
he wants to take away the guns.
The vital second amendment to the US
constitution, is held very dear in America,
and he will have a hell of a fight on his
The lies and hypocrisy being told about
gun control in America are staggering.
Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.
Around 12,000 people are killed by guns
every year. But, the majority of these
deaths, 9000, are suicide, gang or drug-re-
So, 3000 are suspicious. Yet, the media
portrays guns as the most evil thing on the
planet. Compare that with 30,000 killed
in motor vehicle accidents every year.
Is Obama proposing to ban cars? No, of
He is a hypocrite.
The safest places to be are where guns
are in abundance. The criminals just don’t
know who is packing, and it keeps you
safer, that’s a fact.
The highest crime rates in America, are
in the three cities that have the harshest gun
Chicago, New York and Washington DC
do not allow any guns, and they suffer from
the highest crime and murder rates because
of this folly.
Also, the USA is the largest exporter of
firearms in the world. So, Obama is hap-
py to sell guns all around the world, yet,
doesn’t want his own people to have the
security of a gun. What hypocrisy.
Australia needs to seriously think about
relaxing our own archaic and strict gun
In today’s uncertain climate with Islamic
terrorism an ever more increasing threat,
we need as many of the population we can
with the ability to take down a terrorist
whenever that would or could occur. Our
lives could depend on it.
Cheating and corruption plague the cli-
Here are just five examples.
First, we have seen countries and cor-
porations caught cheating – for exam-
ple China understating their emissions,
VW overstating their engine performance,
Spanish solar speculators selling “solar
power” at night (from diesel generators).
Second, we see lazy, incompetent or
biased reporters failing to mention that
drought, floods, fires, storms, hurricanes
and melting ice are not unusual and have
happened many times in the past.
Third, scientists ignore the rules of sci-
ence by claiming effects or correlations
as causes, ignoring inconvenient evidence,
using dodgy data, tampering with tempera-
ture records to create fake global warming
trends, and organising pal-review of dubi-
Fourth, we have mendicant island states
claiming imminent inundation from rising
sea levels despite tide gauges and satellites
showing that nothing unusual is happening.
Finally, we see politicians with hidden
agendas exaggerating warming dangers
while ignoring warming benefits, pushing
propaganda as education, and lying about
the pollution supposedly caused by the gas-
of-life, carbon dioxide.
The global warming business, however,
thrives on bribes funded by other people’s
The rorted tax payer is never present
when deals are done, so glad-handing offi-
cials and politicians use the funds to pursue
their agendas, and the recipients of climate
aid do and say whatever is needed to keep
the funds flowing.
Neither party cares about getting value
for those who pay – taxpayers and energy

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Footy saga’s bitter end
Yesterday news broke that 34 past and
present Essendon football players were
found guilty for their part in the club’s 2012
As part of their punishment, the 12 players
who remain at Essendon and five players who
have moved to other clubs will miss the 2016
As the news surfaced, it was shared across
the internet, and with that so too were the
opinions of Essendon fans and general AFL
Many maintained the players were guilty,
but an overwhelming large majority felt the
punishment was far too extreme.
That includes those who are fans of other
At the same time, many consider that their
actions in 2012 are just as extreme.
Regardless of your position, it also raises
the possibility that newly drafted players may
be called up for game time a bit earlier than
initially expected – including our very own
Caliph lad, Aaron Francis.
Either which way, I think the majority can
agree, the football community will be glad to
move forward and leave this unfortunate saga
Letters to the editor should be brief, preferably no more than 200 words, must
be signed and include name and address for publication. A telephone number
must be included for verification. The deadline for letters is 5pm on Monday.

a picture can,” he says.
“If you have all the ingredients to
