That oaf Throsby’s snide dismissal of my remarks to the National Press Club did not go unnoticed in this office.

To designate me as ‘Senator for Progress At Any Cost’ is as vulgar an insult and erroneous an assertion as any in my political career, and I take strong exception to the inference.

Of course I was elected to represent the hard-working people of north Australia, to whom I will always be grateful for being allowed to improve this magnificent country.

But that means, at the most basic level, that my responsibility is to keep them in jobs, and that requires exploration, drilling, digging, mining, refining, carting, and shipping. Not some progressive sloganeering like “just transitions” but real transitions, like transitioning into more coal-fired power stations, transitioning into more exploration, transitioning into more gas extraction, transitioning into better use of the immense potential of the Great Barrier Reef as a take off point for many more shipping ports and sea-lanes to send our raw materials to the world.

I would like to see less transitioning into transitory so-called green energy and more transitioning into gas and coal base load generation. We need to put these great infrastructure projects back into the fast transit lane.

Transitorily speaking, change is over-rated.

Civilization ..

   defiles itself


Times past when warlords, priests and royalty hoarded luxury, life was a short grim struggle. Today most want for little yet still deny dignified survival to working poor, and ravage entire countries as collateral to our laissez faire fiesta.

Charity

~ its own reward

And what's going on in Land of the Free, Home of the Brave? As 40% of kids fail graduation the Iraqistan wars suck $2.4 trillion [CBO 2017 est]. Imagine this staggering sum applied to rebuilding The Great Society. Think of others.

This lazy unemployed

..crack-smoking welfare queen ran up U$15 trillion debt

lazy homeless scum
Odd how the ultra-wealthy gull even working poor to blame unemployed, disabled, weak, and vulnerable while but for the grace of God go all.

If he's a welfare leech then your soul is with the sociopaths and predators who own Warshington and its minions, the Repugnicans and Dumfocrats, gutting a once noble nation that aspired to equality.

This elite will survive the US economic train wreck, land softly on 300 million plundered taxpayers, then from fortresses of luxury and privilege prey elsewhere for spoils.

The dawn of civilization was greatly exaggerated.
