New YouTube ad by the Liberal Party of Australia detailing the trail of disasters created by Kevin Rudd while he was Prime Minister.
And there’s plenty of more of where all that came from if Australia wants it.

Just got back from welcoming Greg and Sophie Mirabella‘s brand new, darling baby girl to the Universe.
Mother and child are doing very well. Healthy and happy.
Congratulations Greg and Sophie!
Love and Best Wishes to you from Barboo and me.
Sophie has been presented with the Celebrate Capitalism™ campaign’s Annual International Capitalism Award, Melbourne 2008.
Past recipients of this Award have been:
“Without property rights there can be no freedom.”
These are the words of Bob Day, whom I had the pleasure of hearing at a recent Australian Adam Smith Club meeting in Melbourne.
A copy of his talk is available HERE.
Bob Day’s talk centered on private land ownership and housing affordability.
As well as presenting many sound economic principles explaining the causes of rising housing prices in Australia, the United States, and elsewhere, Bob Day also made clear the foundational political/philosophical principles underlying the role of private property, and its indispensable role in the development of liberty and democracy.
He quoted the splendid British Historian, Paul Johnson, explaining that:
The connection between political liberty and the individual ownership of property is one of the great certitudes of human society. It is carved in granite where the words “freedom” and “freehold” come from the same root and have interrelated with each other through many centuries.
And here’s another quote from that talk.
This one by William Pitt, The Elder:
The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the force of the Crown. His cottage may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storms may enter, the rain may enter—but the King of England cannot enter. All his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement.

Heartland Institute: “CO2 does not drive temperature”
… ceasing to mandate market shares for any particular energy source, and abolishing all discriminatory energy taxes and subsidies and all limits, caps and taxes on harmless emissions of CO2.
Australian free market analyst, Gerard Jackson, a harsh critic of Carbon Tax (which he claims is “a direct tax on capital”) had been invited to attend the conference but couldn’t make it due to health problems.

No sooner had we arrived at the Hearts of Oak (Freemasons) Christmas Party this evening, than a fellow Freemason walked by, pressed me on the shoulder, and said with a smile and some emphasis, “Take the money!”
Yesterday, we looked at what “power broker” Michael Kroger was offering the Liberal Party: The gift of more power for himself and his friends.
Well, his is not the only view.
There are other Liberals with other views. At least two of them, anyway.
One isthat ofPeter Coleman. The other, of Peter Dutton.
Let’s have a quick look at the offerings of these two Peters and then conclude with a rhyme.
