FANG, Greens Out Of Ideas

July 9, 2003

The “axis of feeble” that is the WA Greens and the Fremantle Anti-Nuclear Group have run out of reasons to oppose US military training:

Despite assurances that no depleted uranium munitions are being used during the exercises, about 30 anti-nuclear campaigners gathered in Fremantle to protest against the exercises.

WA Greens MP Dee Margetts, who has protested against the use of Lancelin by the US military, said no assurances had been given that depleted uranium would not be used in the future.

Under the false impression that some people take their paranoid conspiracy theories seriously, a FANG moron added:

“Most people would agree what the US military says cannot be trusted, so when they say no uranium is being used, should we believe them?”

She forgot to add that most scientists would agree that DU isn’t harmful anyway, but why should they believe that, either? After all, it’s never been the policy of the Greens or anti-nuclear activists to take science seriously.

Double Standards

All those commentators who think that the Big Brother technician should be sacked for his “fat” remark, get a load of this:

ONE of Queensland’s new fire ant control officers has been on sick leave for more than a year and faces a life of continuing medical problems after he was allegedly kicked in the groin by his female boss.

Rob Harvatt, 33, claims he and a group of colleagues ? including his female team leader ? had stopped at a service station on the way to a job at Pallara, in Brisbane’s western outskirts in April 2002.

He says the team leader kicked him between the legs from behind while he was leaning into a work vehicle, her shoe hitting his groin and creating massive swelling. He stopped working a few days later.

Mr Harvatt has since had two operations to remove infected lumps in his groin and suffers from abscesses.

And what action was taken against his boss? Well, Nothing:

The woman remains employed by the Primary Industries Department.

Mr Harvatt said he reported the matter to the DPI but one of his superiors “laughed it off”. Police are now investigating.

Woman kicking a bloke in the nuts with stilettos so hard he needs an operation: Funny!

Bloke uttering the word “fat” when a hyper-sensitive fat woman is around: UNFORGIVABLE!

NZ More Capitalist Than AU

The latest economic freedom report, published by the Fraser and Cato institutes, ranks Australia 7th in terms of economic freedom – behind Canada, Britain and New Zealand. Hong Kong, Singapore and the US remain in the top 3 positions.

The latest report uses data from 2001, before the latest efforts by China to rein in Hong Kong.

The Age has more.

Furry Fuhrer

Deranged, yet creative:

A RACIST who trained his dog Adolf to give the Hitler salute outside a school of Asian and Turkish children is facing six months in jail. Roland Tach, 53, was arrested as the black labrador raised its right paw as mums dropped their kids off in Berlin.

Giving the salute or praising the Nazi regime in public is forbidden in Germany. But this is believed to be the first time the law has been applied to the owner of an offending animal.

Tach would then command ?Adolf ? Gruss? and his dog would raise his paw. The Heil Hitler salute was also known as the Hitler Gruss ? Hitler greeting ? during the 12-year Nazi regime.

Why would a Neo-Nazi buy a black dog to begin with? Wouldn’t a blonde-coated Golden Retriever be more appropriate?
