Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle – Vegan Power!

Why Ban Bunnings Sausage Sizzle?

Ban Bunnings sausage sizzle say the Vegans. What? This is a case of a minority group having a louder voice than the majority.

The headlines are full of tales of misery and woe plus the positive aspect of the horror bushfires. Australians coming together to help their fellow man. There are many untold acts of bravery, compassion and heroism in the bushfire crisis.

Vegans

Then jumps up the vegan contingent. They want the Bunnings sausage sizzle banned. They say it contributes to the bushfire severity because meat comes from cows. Cows fart methane. Methane is a greenhouse gas.

The amount of meat eaten over the years has reduced with more people choosing to be vegetarian. So it stands to reason there are fewer cows. Back to Bunnings. The amount of meat in a sausage is as low as 30%. All proceeds from the Bunnings sausage sizzle will go to those in need after the fires.

I respect the right to choose. You can be a vegan if you want. But do not use the suffering and pain of others to further your cause.

Bushfires Devastate The Eastern States

As bush fires ravage NSW the regional mayors are speaking out. They say that the current devastation caused by bushfires is a result of climate change. 

Scott Morrison and Michael McCormack say “linking this with climate change is wrong.”

 

Loss and Death

Properties destroyed and the people killed over the weekend is due to these bushfires.

Michael McCormack said on ABC Radio that people need sympathy, help and shelter. Not the ravings of capital city greenies. His words, not mine.

The Mayor of Glen Innes said McCormack should read scientific evidence. Then make his statements.

Carol Sparks (Glen Innes Mayor) believes it is a fact proven by science. Climate change is happening now.

Another Mayor, Claire Pontin, feels cranky towards Mr McCormack. He stated, “we’ve had fires in Australia since time began.” (What the?)

Is Ms Pontin is correct is saying that this would not have happened 50 years ago? Yes.

Politicians of all parties need to unite in forming a plan to combat climate change. And they need to do so now.

Bushfire Blame

Part of the blame for the current bushfires is being apportioned to the drought. To prevent drought affecting the land we should irrigate the land. This can be by piping water inland from Desalination plants.

In the late 19th century C.Y. O’Connor constructed a 550km long pipeline to supply the WA goldfields with water. If it could be done then, it can be done now.

It seems that our Canberra politicians are burying their heads in the sand.

Meteorologists know that climate change is causing bushfires to worsen each year.

Now is time for action

32 former Fire & Rescue Chiefs wrote to PM Morrison earlier this year. They predicted a bad fire season and requested a meeting to develop an action plan. No meeting took place.

WA Police Open Letter

WA Police

WA Police Open Letter To Mark McGowan

In a recent open letter to the WA Premier, Mark McGowan, it was pointed out that there are no minimum staffing levels for police.

What does this mean to you and I? Unlike other large organisations, if ALL police at a given station call in sick, there will be no-one on duty at that station.

This results in longer response times as officers have to travel from another district to give assistance. It could mean the difference between life and death for the public in the worst-case scenario.

During the discussions with the Government, it was said that as crime has no prescribed number of occurrences, there was no need for a minimum or prescribed number of police on duty.

What absolute rubbish.

Should You Check For Osteoporosis?

Hi there, I’m Chris.

Check For Osteoporosis

I recently watched a program on Channel 7 (Weekend Sunrise) where they had a segment on the health of Australians. This segment advised you and me on what we should get checked periodically as a matter of routine with your GP.

They advised various things such as get your blood pressure done. Also, do the stool check (poo check) that over 50’s receive in the mail.

Osteoporosis

The specialist went on to say that Australians should have regular checks for osteoporosis once you reach the age of 50.

Unfortunately, this is a waste of your time and your money.

Why is an osteoporosis exam pointless?

I know of one case where a lady went to her doctor and asked if she could have this checked due to the fact that a relative had broken an arm and was subsequently diagnosed with osteoporosis. Her relative now receives treatment for it.

But here is the kicker

The test results came back as positive meaning she already has osteoporosis. However, due to the fact that she had not broken any bones, she did not qualify as requiring treatment for her osteoporosis.

Surely, if this debilitating bone disease is present she should be treated for it. But no. It seems that you need to have broken something to qualify. So let us say that she goes on till 80 years of age and then breaks a bone. The injury incurred at that time will no doubt be far worse than it would have had she been treated for the condition when diagnosed in her 50’s.

I know that Medicare in Australia provides a great service to you and me but it certainly seems to fall short in this case. What are your thoughts?

What Is Scrubs Day?

Scrubs Day is a day when we remember all of our first responders, ambulance or paramedic officers.

Our doctors, surgeons and anaesthetists.

Our nurses, aged care workers and home visit nurses.

Without all of these devoted and altruistic people, our world would be a sad place indeed.

So if you know anyone working in these fields, give them a big thank you on Scrubs Day.
