Then my work colleague had a chat with the guy (as the were a couple other employees getting the arse and they were members) and the reply was the union cannot do anything.

The thing is union would rather sell out their members (eg shop front employee union at woolies and coles) or never give up their conditions even if it meant that in the long run all the workers lose their jobs.

And where did Shorten come from? Lol


bob hawke was one of our better prime ministers, he came up through the union. but he's an exception. the union helped me battle a multi national company when they tried to shaft me over work related illness. but i also remember when they tried to "advise" people who to vote for at election time . on several high rise developements in inner city brisbane the union has guys on stupidly high pay rates that in the long run are going to hurt the industry. flying in overseas workers is something developers have been working on. i'm a sheetmetal worker, i make commercial air con ducting for big building projects , shopping centres and the like. the air ducting is starting to be imported from china in "flat" form in shipping containers. the governments dropped the ball on several fronts in protecting local jobs. am i gunna have a job in 5 years ? are we going to make anything in this country in the future ? holden and ford no longer manufacture in this country because of silly high pay rates made them uncompetitive and unprofitable. and i've seen the bully boy tactics used by union officials on job sights. :thumbsup:

Dear Mr. Gaznazdiak
Please excuse some of my snarkier questions and comments. They are not meant to offend but enlighten.

This is Abbott we're talking about.
That's Tony Abbott, the bloke who is totally owned and in the complete thrall of the fossil fuel industry

Do you know Mr. Abbott personally?
Do you know anybody who knows Abbott personally?
Do you know anybody who knows somebody who knows Abbott personally?
I suspect the answer is NO so in reality you have imbibed excessive quantities of green/left propaganda and are now simply regurgitating it.
The green/left echo chamber can be quite addlepating.
You must understand that it is only feasible for ultra green and / or ultra left leaders to be living saints and thus be beyond criticism.

Mate I'm not taking the piss, everyone has an opinion, hell I'm full of them.

Too true.
Opinions are like dorsal posterior waste orifices, everybody has one.
But opinions take a number of forms.
There are informed opinions, there are 'handed down' opinions and there are ignorant opinions. All types tinged with a lesser or greater extent of bias. That bias is sometimes "bought" or sometimes sincerely inherent.
Thus in many cases opinions are of the same worth as the output from a dorsal posterior waste orifice.

Such as!

So just how old were you when McMahon played the same seat warming role that Scummo is playing now?

Politics is like a conjuroring trick where the politicians are merely marionettes put up to divert public attention and attract public odium while those with real lasting power pull the strings.

If you are as old as I am then you will see that history is definitely rhyming but now in a much less genteel way.

Start getting ready for the antipodean version of Venezuela in 2019.

Dear Mr straightshooter,

Seems that the bug up your arse took hold of that stick up your arse and gave me the business, huh?

No, I don't know Abbott personally, do you?

Is he your besty?

Is that why my opinion got your panties lodged so far up you?

I don't need to know Abbott personally to know he's one of the LNP far right who claim that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the renewables industry.

I don't need to know him, or someone who knows someone who knows him to have seen this character state that coal and an increase in its use is good for humanity.

As your response is for my enlightenment (lucky ME) one can only conlcude you hold your opinion in very high regard in relation to those of others, narcissistic, much?

One can easily see from the tone of your above pontification that you consider your opinion to be in the "informed" subset and those upon whom you look down as being in the "ignorant".
Fair enough, some people have innate low self esteem. This is quite often characterized by delusions of grandeur or superiority, as the above lecture would suggest.

Your "Such as" question in regards to my claim that Abbott is behind the LNP Coalition chaos would suggest you've either been living in a cave since Mal took the Head Boy seat or simply don't follow current events. Abbott's sniping and whiteanting has been so prevalent and barefaced you make yourself look even sillier by asking.

I was entering my teens when Billy McMahon, to whom I'm distantly related by the way, was in the Lodge, well and truly old enough to understand what was being talked about around me.

Anyway MR straightshooter, you've had your vent, I've given you a touchup in return, so now we can both enjoy the inner glow.

Merry Xmas

Yeah, I’m getting into the Christmas “goodwill “ vibe. I’ve come across too many high strung people and wanna be road ragers just recently brothers and sisters of the forum. Peace on earth and all that. Being a single man I’ve decided to follow Santa’s advice and engage the services of three hot female relaxation therapists over the Christmas break. Ho, Ho ,Ho. :lol:

A single man...? I’ve heard rumours of such talk but not convinced...I’ve heard about them...they are like the Demi gods that answer to no female??...thought they were like unicorns though...someone told me once that a rhinoceros was a unicorn that found chocolate. It’s funny, because it’s kind of relative to women...where the unicorn found chocolate and got fat and turned into a big rhino, the women gets a ring on her finger and the same thing happens...oh my heavenistic and historical single life, where art thee gone?

Okay. Password change time. L8rs. :-)

Ok I'll bite can you please tell us what industry that has done it... just please don't say it's the OH&S industry.... including clipboard holding hard hat wearing workcover/worksafe type ppl.


Hi Ziad,
I think you misunderstood my meaning. I wasn't that clear. My bad,

I meant that the fossil fuel industry or just man's continued use of fossil fuels has indeed been responsible for an enormous, perhaps unprecedented increase in productivity, wealth and health and elevation of livings standards of literally billions of people. This is something that generally those on the left fail to see or choose not to see.
