PROTESTERS 'WANT THE MILE'
When we observe the overall behavioural pattern of these people who get out on our streets making absolute fools of themselves we know with all certainty our nation no longer has a sense of purposeful direction.
Take for example the university "rent-a-crowds" always conveniently able to appear out of the woodwork for a quick buck so as to determine and deceive the naive into believing the particular cause warrants the naive to sit up and take notice.
Yet in reality the said cause has no real substance to start with.
We have this ratbag element in Queensland super gluing themselves to the roads in the central business district as a protest against the very thing needed to keep our electricity grids viable.
Then we have the clowns telling our government leaders that he should weaken our border control laws and let a certain family break those rules already rejected to try and force and stall their stay in our country as pretence badly done to refugees.
How convenient they should have a child born here as a pawn of bargaining power to overstep the rules in place as their reasoning to further flaunt our laws.
They want the mile.
Our PM as his number one priority needs to address the water plight of our farmers and the electricity worries of the nation.
He might start by quashing the Paris Agreement, money wasted on another imaginary cause like all the other crazy ones.
Until someone has the guts to make a stand on the real issues (like the millions brave enough to do so in Hong Kong) for their Christian democracy we will continue to live in fairyland flapping the winds of stupidity coupled with naive nonsense, bordering on insanity.

VOTE WAS CHANCE TO ACT ON WORDS
Senator Perin Davey, from Deniliquin, gave her first speech in parliament.
I watched the speech and noted a quiver in her voice and what appeared to be a genuine commitment to the rural areas she represents.
She spoke about the need to support agriculture and get balance back into water policy. We sure need it!
Senator Davey said nice things about the rice industry and her commitment to providing what is needed to make our regions strong.
As she knows, water is the key ingredient to achieving this, especially in the Deniliquin region where she lives.
So wasn't I surprised when a motion was submitted later that same week by One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts calling for the government to "immediately release 200 gigalitres for irrigation by general security licence holders to save the winter crop and save rural communities".
Here was the first opportunity for Senator Davey to show support for the struggling farmers in her region who are at breaking point on a zero allocation.
And she voted against it!
I find it disappointing, almost heartbreaking, that Senator Davey, at this early point in her political career, would follow the party line and not support a move to provide her constituents with water in this current emergency.
I hope she is going to make a public statement explaining her position.

GENES ARE THE REASON, NOT YOGA
I held a discussion with a professor from Sydney at Wagga Wagga I asked her many questions at.
I asked her "Common people believe that my muscles are weak due to Yoga, I held my breath for 11 minutes then for five minutes and then two minutes I eat a very little food.
That is why my muscles have become very weak I also quoted Sir Arthur Avalon who has said in his book on Yoga ,'Too much Yoga harms the body'".
She replied "Too much Yoga does not harm the body, it is the genes of the body of your parents that your muscles have be come very weak "
