Australia has always fascinated me and I regret that I never took the opportunity to spend some time there. The Land Down Under has many strange and exotic animals. Some of the are cute, some are funny to watch, some I am sure are a nuisance and, some of them are very dangerous. included in this last category, I would guess, are the wild dogs known as dingoes.
The first mystery I want to share has to do with the dingo. Yahoo News today is carrying the story about the death of a 9-week-old baby back in 1980. The parents claimed, at the time, that while they were camping in the out back, dingoes took the baby from their tent. Apparently, neither the authorities or anybody else was buying the dingo story and the mother was charged and convicted of murdering her baby. Then we are told, without any details, that the mother was cleared of these charges. The parents never stopped claiming that it was dingoes that killed their baby and at their insistence the court was convinced to reopen the investigation of dingoes attacking humans and hired an investigator who has now reported the following:
Although it (a dingo killing a child) may have been regarded as unlikely in 1980 … it shouldn’t be by 2011-12,” he said. “With the additional evidence in my submission, your honor should accept on the balance of probabilities that the dingo theory is the correct one.”
So, mystery solved? Maybe and maybe not. I think the real mystery here is what were these imbeciles (the parents) doing camping in the out back with A 9-WEEK-OLD BABY! At the very least, these people should be charged with the wrongful death of their child. UNBELIEVABLE!
The second Aussie mystery I want to share has to do with their vry-to-the -left Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. In the last month or two I bookmarked an article from the You Decide blog. I owe somebody a hat tip but for the life of me I don’t remember who that is. Sorry! The following quotes are attributed to the Australian Prime Minister back in September of last year:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘
We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’
Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’
‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’
‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’
‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
The mystery I am referring to in this case has two parts. First, these words from the leftist Prime Minister must have made headlines around the world. Why do I not recall hearing about this back when the words were spoken? But, the more important mystery to me is this. How is it possible that the liberal Prime Minister of Australia had the courage to stand up to the culture destroying immigrants in her country but no other world leader seems to have the cojones to do the same?
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
