Some very frank and hence "incorrect" comments about homosexual "marriage" from some of the old-timers who email me

A lot of old-timers vote so cannot be disregarded. I am aware that the comments below may offend some but I think all points of view should be aired. We are hardly a democracy if they cannot be aired. If you don't like old-fashioned straight talk, don't read on

1). Re nonsense of same sex marrriage and Paul Keatings immortal words: "Two men and a cockerspaniel do not make a family". To a huge segment of the population these people are deviants and many call them poofters. I suggest you let sleeping dogs lie. They are not prosecuted or persecuted anymore and this is enough.

2). Labor is going to have to start putting some distance between it and the Greens who keep going on about the polls indicating that 62% of the population are in favor of gay marriage.

I would like to know where the polls on this issue are taking place, probably Tasmania, The ABC or Australia Post, the latter, in Brisbane at least, is getting full of the sick bastards. The poofs and lesos at the ABC National are giving this issue plenty of air time, so you don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to work out which way they are leaning, or in this case bending over.

We had old Chipp and the Democrats keeping the bastards honest. Now we have the Greens keeping everyone's bum to the wall.

Thank the good lord big Julia is in to a bit of the old fashinoned hetrosexual in and out and by the look of the size of her arse it looks like she is geting plenty of practice in the old indoor sport.

She is not the best sort in town but I wouldn't knock her back, mind you I may not come out of it alive and at my time of life you can't afford to knock anything back, not that I am getting any offers at home or anywhere else for that matter.

Jokes aside, the biggest worry is Labor, the Government that is. They aren't too worried about this issue dragging on as it keeps the heat off them on other issues. The big problem with this is the longer it goes on the more chance it has of getting up.

These politicans are ruthless bastards and either party, Labor of the Opposition, would run with this if it meant getting in or staying in government -- and that is the big worry.

3). These Greens in federal parliament are the most dangerous bludgers I have ever seen - or heard. I thought the Moslems were/are dangerous but the Greens are their equal. Ironically if the former ever come here in huge numbers there may be a few poofs dangling from the gallows. I wonder if the Greens consider that.

Charities and church groups join in criticism of child protection in NSW

Government and unions resisting privatization -- even though private organizations do a much better job. The Labor party government is afraid of the unions of course. So the kids suffer

CHARITIES and church groups have banded together to accuse the State Government of failing to move quickly enough to protect children in DOCS care. The 27 groups have claimed the transfer of foster care to the private sector recommended by Justice James Wood in a special commission of inquiry last year was "slow and difficult".

Union fears of job losses had been cited as one reason for the slow transition under new child protection system Keep Them Safe, Anglicare said. Other groups joined to fight the government include the Benevolent Society and UnitingCare Burnside.

They have commissioned a report by Deloitte which showed non-government organisations had 98 per cent stability of foster care placements. DOCS record was 50 per cent with half of children repeatedly moved between foster families.

The charities and church groups have a ratio of one caseworker for every eight children while the Auditor-General revealed this week that the DOCS' ratio was one to 29.

A union yesterday launched a campaign claiming the outsourcing of child protection would put children at risk.


Druggie doctor arrested in relation to hepatitis C infections at abortion clinic

Another gross failure of so-called "regulators"

A DOCTOR has been released pending summons after being arrested in relation to claims that patients at a Croydon abortion clinic were deliberately infected with hepatitis C.

The 61-year-old Hawthorn man is understood to be Dr James Latham Peters, who worked at the Croydon Day Surgery (now called Marie Stopes Maroondah) when a number of patients were infected with the virus between 2008 and 2009.

Taskforce Clays detectives are analysing "a significant amount of documentation that was seized last month". The taskforce was created after a formal request from the Department of Health was received by Victoria Police in April. Police are yet to lay charges over the outbreak, which has so far infected at least 41 victims.

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (formerly the Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria) is already facing criticism and legal action for allowing Dr Peters to continue working in spite of his history of drug issues dating back more than a decade before the hepatitis C scandal was uncovered.

So far, 41 women who underwent abortions with Dr Peters have been revealed as having a strain of hepatitis C genetically matching his since the scandal was uncovered last January.

More of his patients also have hepatitis C where the exact strain cannot be matched, while another 1000 women are still being tested after attending the Croydon Day Surgery, the Fertility Control Centre in East Melbourne, St Albans Endoscopy Centre and Western Day Surgery in Sunshine where Dr Peters worked. Police raided the clinics last month.

So far, 37 women have joined a class action against the Medical Practitioners Board.

Muslim hostility gets a just reward

Six month' jail for Muslim woman who lied about police conduct

A MUSLIM mother was sentenced to six months behind bars after falsely claiming a highway patrol officer was racist and attempted to tear her burqa from her face.

Carnita Matthews, 46, made a written complaint against the young officer, who fined her for failing to properly display her P-plates, in what a local magistrate described as a "deliberate and malicious and, to a degree, a ruthless crime".

The case sparked calls for all police cars to be fitted with video cameras after the technology was instrumental in exposing the mother of seven's lies.

It also forced a review by Corrective Services NSW, which has no policy on prisoners wearing burqas. Matthews, who refused to give evidence during her two-day hearing at Campbelltown Local Court, claimed it was a case of mistaken identity. Her lawyer Stephen Hopper even argued police couldn't prove that a burqa-clad woman who handed the sworn allegations to police was her.

Documents tendered to court revealed Matthews received help from former Guantanamo Bay detainee Mamdouh Habib, who twice spoke to a Police Professional Standards Command senior officer on her behalf.

Senior Constable Paul Fogarty had stopped Matthews for a random breath test near her home in Woodbine, in Sydney's southwest, in June. She accused the officer of fining her because she was wearing a burqa.

Video and audio of the incident, caught by a camera in the highway patrol vehicle, showed the officer did not attempt to remove her burqa and that she started abusing him only after being issued with a fine, shouting: "You are racist. All cops are racist."

Mr Rabbidge rejected Matthews' claims she wasn't responsible for the false allegation due to the knowledge of the incident and the signature on the complaint, which matched her driver licence.

Within minutes of the decision, Mr Hopper appealed against the conviction and Matthews was granted conditional bail while the case goes to the District Court.


NSW nurses fed up with their broken hospital system

NSW nurses vowed last night to walk off the job next Wednesday, despite the industrial umpire ordering them not to. The NSW Nurses Association committee of delegates agreed on Tuesday to take the industrial action to push their "1 Nurse 4 Patients" campaign.

They are calling for a major overhaul of the state's public hospital and healthcare system through the introduction of mandated, minimum nurse-to-patient ratios in public hospitals and community healthcare services.

But the Industrial Relations Commission yesterday ordered a month-long strike ban. The Nurses Association has no plans to heed the orders, issuing a statement last night that the industrial action would go ahead.

It comes as NSW struggles to reduce its operation waiting lists and on the eve of Christmas, when operating theatres are shut down for four and six weeks. [To save money!]

On Thursday, IRC commissioner Justice Roger Boland warned the nurses not to go ahead with the strike due to the devastating effects it would have on the health system.

Union general secretary Brett Holmes said night-duty staffing levels would be maintained during the strike and nurses and midwives would provide life-preserving services at all times.

NSW Health said: "If the strike were to proceed it would have a very detrimental effect on the health system."

Some of that stuff is just a cranky old fart's abuse, but this particular guy has it nailed.

Oh, and the Hep C story? The more I think about it, it has GOT to be deliberate infection.
