The contradictions in this article are amazing. First, the whalers claim that "whale meat is like beef to Australia" - which is the opposite of what Japan has been saying for years, that whaling is just "scientific research". But then the "scientific research" of whaling is to see of commercial whaling can start again - so they hunt the whales to see if there are enough to hunt in large scale. Crazy.

Given the recent rains McGyver decided to check out the Powerlines track to see what the mud was like. A fun day out - with the damage being a 200 series CV joint and a bit of a bent panel on a Jeep from side-steps being squeezed.

This has been going on for many years - and the worst thing is that it is legal. Companies are always looking to reduce their tax bill (it is in their best interests) but multinationals have a significant advantage over local companies at the game.

While it is highly disappointing to see companies shirk their responsibilities to the community as good corporate citizens, we must remember that their responsibilities are to their shareholders and no-one else. So the only fix is to change international l...

Our government is doing everything they can to destroy the Australian economy - even though we're top of the class in terms of world ranking economies. Sure, we shouldn't go overboard on spending but the cuts the government is going to make are crazy.

Is piracy an issue? Yup. But most things are pirated because we don't have decent access to the content in a legal manner. If the rights-holders weren't protecting their old-style business models and embraced the digital age a lot of piracy would go away. All of it? Never - it's been around forever. But make content easy to access and affordable - who knows what could happen. Look at Apple and iTunes.

I don't agree with some of this - for example, I'd rather we do pay for the MH370 search - because that's what we'd expect another nation to do for us. But most of this is absolutely spot on.

I'm not in favour of huge spending programs - we need to be responsible with the taxpayer's money - but the current government seems to be trying to cut costs where we really don't need to - or more importantly, shouldn't.
