          alt-right Morrison

          Morrison (and the LNP in general) is center-right, no where near alt-right.

          with franking credits and no Robodebt

          So someone who worked hard and was successful! Why does that make you angry?

          believes coal has a FUTURE

          Not a long term future, but for the present and medium to long term future it is our only option for reliable power that also allows us to be competitive globally in manufacturing.

          blames Labor for how hard life is at the moment

          Life has been pretty good since 2013

            @PainToad: Mate I am so pissed off at our current government. The lies, ignorance and the deception.

            So you are saying someone who works hard and successful?

            Congrats well done, don't doubt that you don't. I bet there are a lot of people who work hard 60 plus hours a week in the sun all day. Had some unfortunate events in their lives. Did not have any contacts.

            Might have a physical or mental disability. Might not have had the best parents or education. Single mums, stuggling to make ends meet.

            The robodebt debacle would have pushed people over the edge with suicide. They say more people kill themselves under the LNP. Some. Of these were also people who would have been very poor at the time, juggling maybe 2 or 3 jobs and at uni full or part time. Government comes along and raids your bank account or tax return.

            Solar with battery storage is the cheapest form of electricity. There are so many renewable projects created but there is a massive backlog to connect them to the grid.

            Could you imagine if everyone had solar on their rooftops?

            More than half of china's coal plants are running at a loss.

            These fossil projects are becoming harder to insure and to get funding. This is a worldwide trend.

            Germany has the last slab of coal mined in Germany in a frigging museum since 2017. We have Scott Morrison bringing in a lump of coal into parliament for show and tell.

            I am glad you are finding it has been great since 2013. There is a scale. You are finding it has been great. Richer get richer, the poorer get poorer.

            Wage growth sucks. The more people earn the more prosperity there is. But the LNP says its part of our economic model to give concessions to the rich.

            I bet the vast majority of Australians would not share your opinion that it's been great. But if you have any great initiatives that Australians have got from 2013 I would be glad to read them.

            It's not good just to read one side of journalism, seek multiple sources and form an opinion on your own.

    • +13 votes

      Bias I can handle… But the mindless NONSENSE the guardian spews is ridiculous. A few years ago I didn't even understand what 'right' and 'left' was… All I knew was I kept getting guardian articles served up during my web searches, when looking for facts/truth/news about something that interested me. I soon learned to ignore links to guardian articles, because EVERY SINGLE TIME without fail, I found they're living in some alternate reality. Someone would do good - the guardian would say it was bad - while producing zero evidence, or outright lies in place of it. Simple fact checks on other sites would produce facts, evidence, reality - the guardian was just some weird, esoteric (usually toxic) - opinion.

      They're an absolute joke in the journalistic world. And it's THEM proved to me, through their warped view of what seems to be - everything - that literally nothing they say can be trusted. Further than that, after giving them chance after chance, I would now say if the guardian says something is this, then it's really that. I'd read things in their articles, article very thin on facts, so I'd go check those facts - and in seconds find not only a mountain of truth elsewhere, but reality was the exact opposite. i.e. They're either deliberate liars, or brainwashed nutters. Or perhaps both.

      • +12 votes

        Links to some of these articles please.

        • +1 vote

          It was 2017. I don't recall the subjects I was looking up. Just go to their site, fact-check the first 5 articles you see (without picking and choosing), and the same pattern will reveal itself. I wouldn't bother trying to show someone really. When people brainwashed ala-guardian-style call for facts, you show them facts, then they say facts don't matter and choose to believe fantasy regardless. Facts, reality, don't matter to them. Belief (they're religion) does and no fact can penetrate the darkness.

          It's funny how someone listed a bunch of 'right' news sources here, like it was some 'hall of infamy' - like you're what the left actually are, by watching some of those sites/people - when they are simply stating facts, real research, reality etc. Why is it funny? Because 'news' outlets like the guardian are losing readership, laying off staff, and closing their doors - while the other people and business on that supposed 'mock list' are surging.

            @GregMonarch: Yeah, so no evidence, just feels and vague memories. Sounds like you just don’t agree with their political point of view. I haven’t even posted my political view and you’re labelling and accusing me. Speaks volumes.

            And news media in general is dying, Newscorp have been laying off staff everywhere.

            • -2 votes

              @Randolph Duke: Sorry, I didn't get any notification of your comments for some reason!?

              I couldn't care less about politics. I just don't agree with intellectual dishonesty or outright lies. I don't want to hear twisted biases, commentary, from news sources - just facts. Then I'll make up my own mind. The problem is however, sources like the guardian simply can't present facts without also skewing them to their own deranged biases.

              As for news media dying… For lack of a better example, let's take this as an example of the kind of half-baked truth some place like the guardian would report, to train their readers to use that same pattern of thinking in everyday life. That is, while it's true newspapers, TV news, etc. has been losing eyeballs for quite some time now:

              a) The rate of eyeball exodus has never been greater until after 2016 when they decided they hated that Trump guy… and,
              b) As I obviously meant, I was referring to the fact the ones considered 'left' are dying a more accelerated death.

              A partial example popped up in my youtube sugestions the other day… See this, from about 4m55s onwards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Smox-CrVC9w

              Like I said - it's just an example because I have no current ones from the guardian, due to them driving me away some time ago through their whacky view of reality. It's just an example to show there's well-rounded reality, but then there's the kind of skewed view the guardian wants to infect people with. (Regarding the exodus of eyeballs, the guardian would say: "Oh, but we're ALL losing eyeballs." Thus trying to imply the guardian isn't any worse-off than xyz, when they're losing far more than 'the right'.)

              Everyone has their own bias. But everything I clicked on from the guardian, presented limited 'facts', an unhealthy amount of personal bias, and/or often omitted facts, and/or just plain lies (which only became obvious by clicking another link to find genuine facts had been strangely omitted by the guardian).

              The most mild form of their bias is still intellectual dishonesty. And no-one likes being lied to - particularly if you're paying for it - thus why 'left' organisations are dying off faster. Facts don't support their bias, but they continue it even as their revenue plummets. So be it. It's better liars with personal agendas find another vocation anyway.

                  I already said elsewhere here that 'the right' media is suffering LESS lost eyeballs. Why are you changing what I said to fit what you want me to have said?

                  That you keep saying only the left lies…

                  Cease putting words in my mouth. Leave that to leftist whack-jobs in the media who love to constantly put words in his. ;-D

                  Seriously, I'm certain the people that hate Trump are either: a) gullible and bleat things back simply because they hear it constantly and are stupid or lazy, or b) they genuinely hate the fact less people are suffering in poverty, have more jobs, being freed from government nanny-state oppression, but most of all - that common sense is making a comeback.

                  He's literally done nothing wrong - about anything. EVERYTHING they whine about, either Obama, Bush, Clinton, did the same or worse (like whole 'the kids in cages' lie - the photos which were from Obama's presidency). Or like this laughable non-issue Ukraine phone call they're screeching about - when Biden & his son are the real quid-pro-quo blackmailers.

                  The ONLY real thing they've ever had on the guy (for those who actually check facts) is his 'kitty-in-the-motorhome' comment. Pffft… Is that it!? Anyone - man or woman - who says they haven't said stuff just like that or worse about someone when they thought no-one was listening, is not worth including in your circle of associates, because they're dishonest, having just lied to your face.

                  It means literally nothing. The whining tools should have a look at how Hillary treated the women her husband raped/molested/rubbed himself on/cheated with. Or how she smashed her phones and wiped her HDD after receiving a court subpoena. How she ignored and abandoned diplomats to die over in Benghazi. Hillary paying for her pee-pee dossier (which it's now looking like Obama was involved with too)…

                  You know, some corruption that ACTUALLY DID happen, rather than what amounts to less than someone showing off in private about what star-struck goldiggers would probably ALLOW IF you tried.

                  People think because they hear this nonsense on TV/in papers, that it must be true. Anyone that believes the mainstream media is either ignorant or thick as 22 planks. Those journalists aren't interested in journalism… They're just stooges pushing the agenda of their CEO/owner to sell advertising - and shouldn't be believed any longer.

                      a) There WAS no 'sexual assault'. At best you could claim he's 'guilty' of 'hurty words'. Money-hungry scrubbers will seek out and allow virtually anything for some $$$ or fame. THAT is the only point he was making. But don't let reality in, ok?

                      b) Meanwhile, I see you completely ignore the rest of what I said about the Clintons. It seems your cult requires firmly riveting blinders on to the multiple and REAL sexual assaults of rapey Bill, but also the abuse heaped upon his victims by his hypocritalk wife (who meanwhile rakes in $$$ for speaking at '#metoo' meetings - where she says, 'We have to believe and support woman who claim they've been abused.' What a joke.

                      Facts are what matters. The left/most of the media/people that hate Trump/etc. are repulsed by real facts until after they've turned them into half-truths to fabricate a completely different situation that never happened.

            @GregMonarch: Also calling utter bs on not knowing left and right, although anyone debating in such definitive ways can generally be ignored - views are far more complicated than “left” or “right” (although that’s hard to tell with brainless cheerleaders from both sides)

              @Randolph Duke: Oh, so I'm lying!? LOL. Why bother - am I earning $$$ somehow from it? No, I didn't know what 'left' and 'right' wing meant - not until late 2016 at least, until I saw the utter nonsense begin to spew forth over the ONE politician who actually began DOING what he promised, and which the citizens of every (western nation at least) has been begging and wishing for their entire lives (but who never realistically expected they're actually get).

              That drew a firm line down the middle, when it became obvious what 'left' and 'right' was, which I'd never seen before.

                @GregMonarch: Trump supporter, makes sense. Impressive that according to you he appealed to every citizen of the US by losing the popular vote. May want to cut back on your dear leaders style rhetoric. He’s nothing I want in a leader.

                I’ll give him one thing, that he managed to convince people he was an everyday man after inheriting a large fortune and managed to give his billionaire mates a tax cut, only to be cheered on by the people who will be most affected by a loss of welfare, is impressive.

                  2. I've seen a video - with those inconvenient things called facts (actual numbers) - that show he DID win the popular vote. And no I don't remember where it is, but I know it would never be found on the deranged propaganda you seem to feed on. I couldn't care less about all this really, except to say all this proves what I said at the start about facts. The left hates them and either hides them or lies to change them into something completely different that never happened.

                  3. Even if he didn't 'win the popular vote' - so what, who cares. He's in because that's how their voting system works, right? So you do realise it would work the other way too, yeah? i.e. They had no problem with their system when it worked in their favour. They only spout this nonsense claim now because their candidate didn't win. And… If they did change the system, and then LOST because of it - guess what - they'd start whining to change it back again, LOL!

            @GregMonarch: I just picked up this week’s copy of the Guardian Weekly and haven’t found any factual errors in the first 10 pages.

            The website articles are a bit more woke and clickbaity, but that’s how internet news websites work. They need to get your attention.

            That’s why I get my news in print form. Nobody is collecting metrics on which page of the newspaper gets the most eyeballs and promoting outrage stories to the top. The most important stories lead, and the partisan opinion stuff that is so popular on the websites gets buried towards the back.

      The Guardian Weekly isn’t that biased really. It has a focus on international news, so unless you have a really partisan stance on the crisis in Bolivia, or actually believe Bolsonaro when he says Leonardo DiCaprio lit the Amazon fires, you’re probably not going to find too much to be outraged about.

      They even had an article last week about how the UK Labour campaign is going off the rails because everyday Brits hate Corbyn with such passion. Hardly left-wing-bubble stuff.

      I’m pretty much in the centre of the political spectrum, and while there may be one article per issue I roll my eyes at, the rest is pretty solid journalism.

      Sure, I mean they only broke what was probably the most important story of modern times (Snowden revelations into government surveillance, something that affects us all and that we should all care about) for which they won a Pulitzer.

            @el_cheapo: There will never be a conservative winner of a Pulitzer. It is judged by the left. There have been plenty of deserving conservatives in the past but they don't get a look in. Pulitzer won't even recall awards given to journalists who's stories have been later proven to be full of deception.

      • +5 votes

        That means nothing. I watched a Snowden interview and he's a firm leftist, with some of the things he said easily-proven to be nonsense. So it's only natural he would go to a leftist [cough] news outlet. Additionally, awards no longer mean anything. e.g. Obama was given the nobel peace prize for 'bringing people together' - but murdered more civilians using bombs than any president before him, LOL.

        A quality news outlet serves up facts with as little preconceived bias as possible. The guardian begins with a crazy bias, then omits the facts, and often doesn't even bother to insert new ones - they just present articles as if their skewed reality (fantasy) is the only 'real' reality, and call you an idiot if you point out facts prove them liars.

              @idonotknowwhy: For an unbiased news source, Reuters or AP are really the only options. They have to be neutral and objective because they basically sell the news articles to other sources, which then alter it to be appealing for their target audience.
