Daryl should be thanked
Daryl, a big thank you from all in your electorate.
Representing us over 19 years, you have done yourself and us proud. We are so grateful for the many projects you have done for us. Lots of steady hard work daily over the years to bring about achievements such as the new Kapooka Bridge and our wonderful new hospital and the safety work on the Gocup Road.
Wise discernment used for all projects, for example, the choice to build and open the new Gissing House first with plenty of ‘holding beds’ to stop patients being discharged into the community too soon. Yvonne Braid had a lot to do with this too.
Blessing on you and yours for your future.
Anne and Ron Helyar, Uranquinty
Time to take a stand
What has happened to Dick Smith (a fair dinkum Aussie through and through) is nothing short of total government ingratitude. It reminds me of another true blue Aussie who stuck her neck out (like him) on behalf of the Aussie people only to have the bleeding heart brigade knock her down, claiming she was a ‘racist’ (that conveniently used word) whenever these minority groups and their ‘causes’ can’t get their own way.
When she made her maiden speech in parliament all hell broke loose, not because she got it wrong but because she was spot on. The newspapers (of the left) went into meltdown so offended that someone was brave enough to tell it how it was at the time and warn the people how it was going to get and isn’t it now how she said it would be?
Dick Smith has done exactly the same, warned the people what would happen if they don’t rally behind their own manufacturers in the food chain but it fell on deaf ears. Instead of the government heeding the warning from both these parties, they just ploughed ahead, letting every Tom, Dick and Harry take over (in general) whereby very little, if anything, is Australian owned and made here. This is why the quality of the goods we get from elsewhere is so inferior to what we used to manufacture ourselves and as to why jobs no longer exist (for a lifetime) like they used to when everyone had full time employment. We have lost the right of ownership of our own nation that the true blue and Aboriginal people who united side-by-side and fought in world wars to protect other nations for its own people only to see it handed over on a platter (on the cheap) to other elsewhere at its people’s ongoing expense.
Well done to Dick and Pauline for having the fortitude to stand up and be counted without fear or favour for the survival of their own country. These are our true blue dinky die Aussie stalwarts with the Aussie spirit.
Next federal election, let’s not have short memories (out the the long time hangers on) and in with the new blood at the helm.
Warren Mundine for PM, Cory Bernardi his deputy (the only ones in parliament who actually exercise any real common sense). Add to them independents (wise in their discernment). It wouldn’t be difficult for the electorate to want stability of mind and action to replace the ones we have now whom collectively don’t have a brain between them.
Time for Aussies to swing the pendulum their way in accordance as they ought before their nations is totally wiped from beneath them. Come on Aussies, make a stand next time around.
