It's time.

I Saw this a few months ago and just saw it again.

Please click on that link and watch the video!!  PLEASE!!  this is one of the biggest battles in Australia at the moment.  it shouldn't be.  Australian politicians should have more important issues to worry about but apparently they don't. 

are we going to let the minority make the rules in Australia????  Do you agree with this video??? do you agree with the statement being made??? if you do (this suddenly sounds like one of those chain emails or something)  we need to do something!!  write to you local member!  

the Federal member page is Janelle Saffin and her contact email is

Or you can contact Peter Ellem from the Grafton Office

If you would like to do SOMETHING but don't what to write or don't have time to write it or anything else



twitter me

but please don't just do nothing.  that is how the minority win.

Stephen Jones. Member of Parliament.

yesterday night I heard that Barack Obama thinks "same sex couples should be allowed to marry."  today,  roughly fifteen minutes ago actually, I saw this video.  For once in my life I actually commend her for something!!  despite radio hosts trying to basically make her say that she's broken faith with the Australian public (voters in particular) she just bluntly shuts him up with "well you know, I believe what i believe" in that bland OH-so scripted... no I won't be mean.  Good on her for standing up for something right finally!!

To the main subject of this post however.  Stephen Jones is the ALP member for Throsby.  what's so important about him?  (had anybody else other than me never heard of the place Throsby until I looked at his website?)  well, it's important because he is the member of parliament who, according to Julia Gillard, will be presenting the Bill calling for the amendment of the Marriage Act to parliament later this year. Again from his website, there is a copy of the bill which I am assuming is the one Jules is talking about.  I do not believe that same sex marriage should be made legal in Australia.  I believe that same sex marriage is an abomination in the eyes of the Lord.  In Romans chapter 1 from verse 22 Paul writes, "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 
23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 
24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 
25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 
26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 
27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."  

In Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22 God says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."  In the next verse He goes on to say, "Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion."  Now, we still agree with the second verse.  why have we changed our views as to the first??  doesn't evolution say that we are only animals ourselves?  then what's the difference between a guy getting together with another guy and guy getting together with an animal??  Is that where this country is heading? 

I am aware of other people's views on this subject.  I'm not some brainwashed religious kid.  I am aware that some people are "born unhappy with their gender."  Not ever having had that feeling I wouldn't be able to state whether they do or not but I am prepared to state that however Satan twists our thinking, it is NOT how God originally made man (man being the generic term for humankind.)  If anybody disagrees with me, or thinks I don't have enough evidence for my beliefs I am happy to do a more complete, much longer blog about the issue of same sex marriage and why I believe it shouldn't be made legal in Australia. 

Just by the way, I do NOT believe that people who call themselves Bisexual or Homosexual or Lesbian are evil people who should be shunned and looked down on as though they have leprosy or something.  PEOPLE ARE STILL PEOPLE AND SHOULD BE TREATED LIKE IT.  I do believe that their lifestyle is sinful but I am not "homophobic" in the sense that I have an insensible hatred towards people with differing sexual tendencies.  I am not homophobic! I do believe that their lifestyle is wrong and sinful, yes.  I do not "hate" them.

2012 Budget

I could do the whole apology for not blogging in centuries but this is too important and quite seriously I am way to frustrated to bother with that right now.  soo....

Extracts and comments on the Budget speech as delivered by our DEAR Treasurer Wayne Swan:

"The four years of surpluses I announce tonight are a powerful endorsement of the strength of our economy, resilience of our people, and success of our policies.

In an uncertain and fast-changing world, we walk tall — as a nation confidently living within its means." Two sentences into the budget and he's already talking pure unadulterated Labor RUBBISH. Confidently living within it's means??? And over it's whole miserable time in government Labor has run up HOW many BILLIONS of dollars in debt??? I think it was $143.335 Billion last time I checked.

"Madam Deputy Speaker, since this Government came to office we have stared down a global financial crisis" yeah sure but it wasn't thanks to YOUR government! it was thanks to the foresight and surplus left by John Howard.

"Surpluses built on some difficult savings, which avoid vulnerable Australians and frontline services" they just involve cutting defense spending by $971 Million in this year ahead.

THIS IS WHY POLITICS IS IMPORTANT!! people do not know any better!!! they are being fed this utter trash from Labor and believing it because they have never cared enough to learn any better!! Labor is feeding of Australia's ignorance and growing!! For crying out loud when are we going to wake up???

this is the kind of stuff I yell about at school  this is the kind of stuff that EVERYBODY laughs at me for getting worked up about (yes I know that didn't make sense)  BUT IS THERE NOT SOMEBODY OUT THERE WHO GIVES A STUFF ABOUT WHAT THE LABOR PARTY IS DOING TO OUR COUNTRY???!!!  If I was the swearing type (Which I in NO way am, I would be swearing now.)  PEOPLE'S APATHY IS COMPLETELY PATHETIC!!!  I CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS AND HOW MUCH IT KILLS ME TO SEE PEOPLE COMPLETELY IGNORING IT.  THEY ARE RECKING OUR COUNTRY AND NO ONE CARES!!   FOR PETE'S SAKE PEOPLE!!  WHAT IS WRONG WITH TAKING SOME SORT OF INTEREST, EVEN HAVING SOME SORT OF BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF OUR OWN GOVERNMENT??!  *sigh*  It's a wonder I don't have high blood pressure...

carbon tax

"The Australian Government is investing more than $5 billion in developing and commercialising clean energy technologies because we know these technologies will be crucial for Australia’s efforts to reduce its carbon pollution emissions. These technologies will also be important to the rest of the world as they also need to reduce their carbon pollution.  Australia has set a Renewable Energy Target of 20 per cent by 2020. This means that by 2020, one-fifth of Australia’s electricity will come from renewable sources such as wind, solar and geothermal power"

One question Julia,  what happens if there's a cloudy windless spell? 

we have a solar hot water system.  Apart from living in constant fear that me or my brother are going to hit the solar tubes with a tennis ball or something its pretty alright.  but if we get a couple of cloudy/rainy days, or even one; we need to turn the electricity on so we can still have hot showers.  what will happen when massive chunks of the country relies on solar or wind?

did she say one fifth???  we contribute something like 1.4% to the general carbon footprint don't we?  so if we cut down by one fifth.....  (I'm sorry I never was much good at maths) how much does that improve the general environment by?  as my father very truly said, "ten percent of one fifth of stuff all." 

and remember, Julia Gillard is socialist.  i.e. she wants to control people (its like a milder version of communism basically).  A carbon tax helps her to control people.  She wants to buy a new car? ah, no problem mate! just raise the carbon tax a bit higher.

another problem:  all of these grand ideas like using renewable energy, need Government support and Government (taxpayers) money other wise they fall apart.  It has been tried before.  In one article I read, she talked about investing more than $5 billion in developing and commercialising clean energy technologies and two paragraphs down she talk about investing $4.5 billion to help Australia natural resources to create a cleaner energy supply and to reduce our carbon pollution emissions.  how much more of our money is it gonna take???

If she's that worried about the earth blowing up from global warming or overheating from the blanket of carbon or whatever the trendy thing is, why doesn't she just go back the Bible?  Gen 8:22  While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

God has the whole world in his hand.  He created it and he can keep it for as long as he wants it.  no human can overcome God no matter how much carbon emissions they make.

hope everybody has a blessed weekend :)

Love Rachel

P.S  back to school next week! :D

I'm still alive!

greetings everybody!! :D

how is everyone? what's been happening in your world?

My world has been pretty busy (hence the lack of blog posts) buuut it is Friday night and that means I can sleep in tomorrow so despite my freezing hands I thought I would sit down and ramble on for a while :)

so I'm sure there's better things to write about than these but I'm too cold to think of them right now soooo, here are some "Friday Facts"  I got in an email from Liberal HQ :D

  • Labor is borrowing $135 million every day.
  • Net government debt will climb to a record $107 billion in 2011/12. That’s more than $4700 for every Australian
  • By 2014/15 Labor will be spending $7.5 billion a year or around $20 million a day on interest payments.
  • The 2010/11 budget deficit has soared to $49.4 billion – the second largest since WWII and $8.6 billion worse than forecast in last year’s Budget.
  • Labor’s Budget hits Australian families and businesses with $6 billion in new and higher taxes.
  • The Budget strips $2 billion from families by freezing for three years the indexation of key family payments and income thresholds. All families receiving Family Tax Benefits will have some benefits stripped from them.
  • At the same time, the cost of offshore asylum seeker management has blown out by a further $1.75 billion, while Labor is cutting $2.7 billion from Australia’s defence budget.
  • Instead of ending the uncertainty surrounding Labor’s Carbon Tax, the Budget fails to give details on how it will impact living costs and jobs. But it does provide $13.7 million for a taxpayer-funded advertising campaign to sell Labor’s new tax.
and just so this blog isn't toally boring, I got this in an email from a friend.  its pretty cool :)

The Queen's riddle
 Julia Gillard met with the Queen in England . She asked her, "Your
Majesty, how do you run such an efficient government? Are there any
Tips you can give to me?"

"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

Julia frowned, and then asked, "But how do I know the people around me
Are really intelligent?"

The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to
Answer an intelligent riddle."

The Queen pushed a button on her intercom. "Please send David Cameron
In here, would you?"

David Cameron walked into the room and said, "Yes, Your Majesty?"

The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please, David, your mother
And father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your
Sister. Who is it?"

Without pausing for a moment, David Cameron answered, "That would be me."

"Yes! Very good," said the Queen.

Julia went back home to Australia and asked Wayne Swan, her Deputy
Prime Minister the same question.
" Wayne , answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child.
It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
"I'm not sure," said Wayne . "Let me get back to you on that one." He
Went to his advisors and asked every one, but none could give him an
Finally, he ended up in the men's room and recognized Tony Abbott's
Shoes in the next stall.
Wayne asked, "Tony, can you answer this for me? Your mother and Father
Have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Tony yelled back, "That's easy, it's me!"
Wayne smiled, and said, "Thanks!" Then, he went back to speak with Julia.
"Say, I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle. It's
Tony Abbott"
Julia got up, stomped over to Swan, and angrily yelled into his face,
"No, You idiot! It's the English Prime Minister, David Cameron!"


Hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!  I'm planning on doing school work for most of mine :P

ok, I am going to take ten deep breaths and try to write this sensibly......

so I watched the last bit of the royal wedding tonight, I got to see the good bits and I got see them on the balcony thing.  (honestly, I would so love to see that place!!!  Imagine standing on the balcony, I mean THE balcony of Buckingham Palace! wouldn't that be amazing?)  anyway getting back to the wedding....

first of all, I am really glad they are actually married!!  Because I'm hoping that Kate will put a bit of "commoner" into the royal family, (although Prince William is really nice all on his own)  and she was so nice and natural looking and Prince William always looks kind of easily casual.  I didn't really like the waving bit, they kind of looked a bit dumb just standing there waving. but I really did LOVE Kate's reaction when they first walked out! "oh wow!"

just as a side note, did anybody see that white police horse that didn't want to be docile? :D

I really really hope and pray that they will be truly happy with each other and God will bless them both, especially William because he has to be king!
just imagine if they don't really love each other and they end up being unhappily married for the rest of their lives? or getting a divorce?  that really would be good news for all those Monarchy haters.  maybe I sound like a worrier but just look at Charles and darling Camilla!

anyway I love them both (especially William) and I reeally do hope they are happy and they do everything well and they stay married and they have lots of humour to take them through the tough times and media and everything goes really well for them.

Love Rachael

this post is not remotely connected to politics but I just had to blog about Prince William's wedding :D

holidays :)

So this Holidays haven't really been holidays for me so I haven't been able to do the fifty thousand blogs I was hoping to get done.  in fact I haven't got an political stuff to talk about at all.  expect the usual local stuff which is probably pretty boring.

actually, Wait wait!!  yes I have news!!  its not terribly exciting maybe but still,  there's this article in the Australian about Labor's youth vote dropping dramatically and the Coalition's youth vote going up.  so far so good.  the not good side of it is that all Labor's youthful supporters are joining the Greens.

Why is that bad? It's bad because the Greens are "the watermelon party." they make themselves look like an environmental party but they're really not.  They are communist and they want to legalise abortion, euthanasia and gay marriage.  They also have one seat in the Upper house now.   OH OH OH OH OH!!!  that's what I was going to blog about!!!

Ok, carrying on from my Little Greens warning/rant.  GUESS WHAT :D :D


and Paul Green was elected to the upper house.  

That is, the most exciting thing that has happened to me in... a couple of months anyway.  Christian Democratic Party now has two people in the upper house, Paul Green and Fred Nile.   God hasn't forsaken NSW yet.

So I am now going to go to bed, everybody have a great week of holidays and those of you who have another two weeks..... I am not jealous in the slightest (no really I'm not)  YOU ARE SUCH SLACKERS!!
