Qantas won’t fly what China won’t like | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

This is ugly, and I fear it’s a glimpse of our future:

With all the attention on the engine failure aboard one of its A380 jumbo planes earlier this month, you would think Qantas doesn’t need any more bad publicity. But the tale of Sheridan Genrich, a flight attendant who was demoted for her religious beliefs, suggests that the Australian airline has a tin ear when it comes to dealing with China.
Ms. Genrich is a practitioner of Falun Gong, a form of exercise and meditation that Beijing has banned as an “evil cult.” During a 2008 stopover in Beijing, the authorities detained her for possessing the group’s literature. The airline then disciplined her for breaking a rule against “conveying newspapers” and transferred her to short-haul flights, despite her seniority and strong service record.

Ms. Genrich appealed to the Australian labor authorities, which last week ordered her reinstated. Fair Work Australia Commissioner Frank Raffaelli criticized the airline’s handling of the case, saying, “The implication of Qantas’s action is that there is a restriction on the practice of her spiritual beliefs in private, which is contrary to both Australian and international law.”....Read More

Gillard’s NBN case falls flat

Julia Gillard is forced to release some of the business case for her national broadband network, and the figures are huge:
THE National Broadband Network’s pledge to pay back $27.1 billion in taxpayer funds rests on the ability to sign up 8.3 million customers.
It also needs to get a favourable ruling for a business plan that extends its monopoly.
The NBN Co business case summary, released yesterday after pressure from independent senator Nick Xenophon, is short on detail on the rates of return the project will deliver or its pricing, and falls far short of the cost-benefit analysis the Coalition and prominent business leaders have been demanding.....Read more

A green plan to have us on bark soup | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

EVERY day seems to madder than the last. The latest: we’ll now pay farmers to grow stuff no one can eat.
Brilliant! What next? Spend $16 billion on an “Education Revolution” without hiring a single extra teacher?
Oops. Right. We did that last year.
But this surely is even crazier.
The latest scheme from Canberra, backed by both sides of politics, is to pay farmers to plant more trees to stop global warming.
The idea is that these trees take our wicked carbon dioxide from the air and capture it as wood for decades until they, er, die, rot and release it all back again. Or go up in smoke in a bushfire.......Read more

Where in the world do they breed these folks that make such irrational decisions. The green madness seems to be chronic at the moment. Has there been a pandemic declared on these totalitarian control freaks hell bent on destroying lives, jobs, business, hopes and aspirations in Australia?

Monsanto The Poster Child of Corporate Manipulation Corruption and Deceit : Dr. Leonard Coldwell

Monsanto: The World’s Poster Child for Corporate Manipulation and Deceit

At a biotech industry conference in January 1999, a representative from Arthur Anderson, LLP explained how they had helped Monsanto design their strategic plan. First, his team asked Monsanto executives what their ideal future looked like in 15 to 20 years. The executives described a world with 100% of all commercial seeds genetically modified and patented. Anderson consultants then worked backwards from that goal, and developed the strategy and tactics to achieve it. They presented Monsanto with the steps and procedures needed to obtain a place of industry dominance in a world in which natural seeds were virtually extinct.

This was a bold new direction for Monsanto, which needed a big change to distance them from a controversial past. As a chemical company, they had polluted the landscape with some of the most poisonous substances ever produced, contaminated virtually every human and animal on earth, and got fined and convicted of deception and wrongdoing. According to a former Monsanto vice.....Read full article
