quickie


I have 10 minutes to write a post, so it will have to be a quickie:

1. IRA: Disarming and calling it a day. Let’s hope so. However how do you change a culture based on hatred at an individual level?
2. “Echinacea doesn’t prevent or treat a cold” latest study finds. Well what chance does it have if you use doses of around quarter of what most herbalists would prescribe?
3. The government finally gets with the program and releases children from detention. By the end of the day there should be no refugee families behind barbed wire in Australia. About bloody time.
4. Government to spend $20 million on an ad campaign to sell its new industrial relations “reforms”. Schools and hospitals must be amazed at where they have found the money.
4. “Woops” says the National Australia Bank, we accidentally over charged our customers $80 million in account keeping fees. These “processing errors” go back in one case to 1982. That’s just a little slack I reckon.

Times up, have a good day.

So will the NAB get hauled through the courts like those currency traders did? No I guess not

The IRS disarming, is only half the problem solved. The protestant militas also need to disarm.

The government is releasing families from behing barbed wire, but it should be noted that they will still be detained in residential areas. As suc a typical half-arsed approach by the Liberals.

The $20 million for the IR ads came from the same place that the money fro the tax cuts came from, even though 2 weeks prior to announcing the tax cuts the government couldn't keep one of it's election promises on health as it didn't have the money. And where was the media and the ALP on this? MIA......
