Why am I so Healthy at 76?

Any time I have criticised proponents of pharmaceuticals, I am abused, ridiculed and insulted. Of course the insults mean nothing to me as I know what I know and I am the one who is healthy, not them.

So, I have decided to write a blog about how to be healthy.

Health depends on 7 major factors: Lifestyle, what you eat, how and what you think, how you walk and how you sit, stress, what products you use, what you breathe and your spiritual awareness.

  1. Lifestyle: going to the gym will not help you to be healthy. Physical hard work that is productive will. Dancing is also good if you like dancing. Communing with nature/meditating and going for walks in parks or in the country on a regular basis will help. Yoga, Chi gong along with a myriad of other practices is worth doing, if only one of them. Walking barefoot on grass, rather than jogging on hard pavements. Enjoying life.
  2. Food: is to sustain you and to give you pleasure. A diet is useless if you hate it. Find out your blood group and eat according to its needs. Now I’m blood group O which comes under hunter/gatherer, therefore being vegetarian isn’t suitable. I was strict vegetarian for 12 years, but I noticed my health deteriorate in that time till I went to a naturopath who asked me if I was vegetarian. I told him that I was and had been for 12 years. He then asked me if I went into it gradually or overnight. I told him over night. He asked me why I had done that. I told him how a friend had visited me and had opened my frig and had said “yuk! Flesh!”, he then slammed the door shut and walked out without saying good bye. The naturopath then asked me if I ate the meet. No, I did not. It went in my compost bin. He advised me to slowly introduce white meat and fish again, which I did. I had no symptoms other than I didn’t feel as strong as I was used to or as much energy. My strength returned as soon as I started eating some meat. I had also become quite anaemic. This is in my 30’s through 40’s. Organic of course is best. The only organic I eat is what I grow. Never put into your mouth that which is alien to your body. Now think about that. The only meat I eat these days is non domestic, so it’s kangaroo for me.
  3. What and how you think contributes to disease. If you indulge in loop thoughts of a resentful nature, you will eventually get cancer. The trigger maybe environmental, but the cause is resentment unfettered. If you find yourself slipping into a depression, you must haul yourself out of it and not rely on drugs to get you out. Depression is when your qi energy is turned downwards. If you are willing to put some energy into reversing your qi energy, it will be worth it. Ok wallow in it for an hour or two, then get cracking on making it do a U turn at your feet and up, up, up and out the top of your head. BTW cannabis is not a drug. Cannabis is a plant and a herb that our Creator God of all that Is provided for our use to give us both pleasure and to heal us if we have strayed from good health. If you have a negative thought, that’s ok. What isn’t ok is thinking the same negative thought over and over. That will eventually make you sick. The original negative thought will have little effect on your body as long as it is brief. That’s why swearing works wonders. Swear at the bloody thing and you feel better and then it’s over. Let it go.
  4. How you walk is very important. I walk with a straight back and with purpose. I look like I know where I am going and why. I also walk quickly, unless I am going for a stroll along the beach. Look straight ahead, unless you are searching for something on the ground in which case it doesn’t apply. Also when standing, always stand equally on both feet. And when lying on your back, never cross your ankles, it cuts off circulation. How you sit, especially when eating is very important for good digestion. You must sit with a straight back. No slouching, even when tired. Never cross your legs when you are at home. It’s ok to do it occasionally when you are out if it looks more elegant or you don’t want to mansplay.
  5. Stress: short term stress is a stimulant and is not harmful. So many of you will say that some stress can’t be avoided. True. The expression ‘don’t stress over the little things’ is very helpful. Don’t cry over spilt milk another. If your favourite vase is broken, have a little cry, tell a friend, then get over it. It is continued stress that is very damaging. If you are stressed over finances, it is very difficult to get a break from it, but you must try. A person worrying about finances during sex will not be totally in the moment and will not enjoy it as much as they would if there were no troubles on their mind. Being overly anxious over a child’s well being will cause disease eventually. Remember that a cause always needs a trigger. Worry is negative energy and never solves problems; it perpetuates them.
  6. Products: now this is a tricky one. And remember that products are only the trigger. For instance I do sometimes use insect spray. However when I do, I take a deep breath, spray and walk backwards holding my breath. When I have stopped spraying, I let air out slowly and go quickly to fresh air and take a deep breath. Talking about breathing, it is very important to take deep breaths every now and then, as long as the air is good, of course. I never had to protect my babies from any poisons in my house as I didn’t have any. Instead of being careful, just don’t have any. I do have Pino Clean in my house now, but it is a tiny bottle and I have had it for over a decade. And it’s still half full. Never use a deodorant containing aluminium. Talc contains nanoparticles, apparently harmful. Suntan, lotion also. I garden in the nude and I never put sun screen on. I never seem to get burnt as I am walking around, always moving. I do use sun screen if I am at the beach during mid-day hours. I rarely go to the beach. All solvents are triggers for cancer.
  7. If you are spiritually impoverished: you will be a climate sceptic or anti-social, or religious, narrow-minded, critical and judgemental, narcissistic, psychopathic, paedophile, gossip or cruel. Atheists are healthier than religious people. However I’m not an atheist. I am a non-Christian Gnostic. I do not hold to any religion as all that is necessary in life is to listen to one’s conscience.

I have listed a few things here for you to look at quickly, however there is a lot more to good health than what I have listed. For instance, guilt is very damaging. Guilt will eat away at your health insidiously without symptoms for years before disease and symptoms appear. Whilst I’m on symptoms: whenever you become aware of a symptom, attend to it immediately. A symptom is usually a precursor to disease. If you have pain anywhere that just appears for no apparent reason, it is a warning to do something or make a change. Learn what certain symptoms mean. With the Internet it has become easy to do this. Long term guilt over the same subject will cause cancer. If you told a lie and got found out, but it didn’t hurt anyone, you may feel guilty for a while, and then you forget about it. No problem. But if you did something to someone many years ago and it did affect them and it was never found out, that guilt will fester, causing cells to misbehave. Resentment, guilt and anxiety are the worst for causing dis-ease. Hatred strangely doesn’t seem to have the same effect. A person who hates usually feels good about themselves and they can justify their hatred; very different from guilt and resentment.

I haven’t mentioned not to eat junk food as I presume anyone reading this already knows how bad for your health junk food is. However if you are healthy you can eat it once in a while. I do eat pizza about once every one or two years. I eat fish and chips about once every three years. I never eat hamburgers, pork or soft drinks. I won’t name them, but I’m sure you all know what they are. White sugar is poison and has no nutritional value. Make sure that your sugar intake is low and never use white sugar at home as you will get plenty of it when eating out. Cheddar cheese also damages the villi in your small intestines.

I thought when I started writing this piece that I would cover everything in a couple of pages, but there is a lot more to it than just listing a few things to do and not to do. How close you sit to your TV for instance is important. I have only one TV and I usually watch it in my kitchen where I spend most of my time when inside. I sit 3 metres away from it. If I am watching it in my sittingroom, I twist it around and I sit about 6 metres from it then. TV’s do emit a negative energy called orgone energy. For years I refused to buy a microwave. I’ve had one now for about 5 years and I wouldn’t be without it. However, they emit a bad energy; I don’t take the risk of having it in my kitchen as I sit in my kitchen a lot. It sits behind a curtain in another room and when on, I walk away.

Leading a sedentary life will lead to problems. Try not to sit for more than half an hour at a time. Get up and walk around, do a little dance or some standing stomach crunches and crouches. If you are watching a commercial TV station get up in the ads and do something useful or just move around. ABC is a trap and I do find myself sitting for an hour at a time sometimes when I become engrossed in a program. The internet is also a trap. Keep an eye on the time and get up and move. Standing stomach crunches is easy to do. Stand with feet at shoulder width apart, suck in your stomach and hold 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 seconds and let go slowly. Try not to completely let it go so that you are still using your stomach muscles. The more you do in a day, the flatter your stomach will become. Stave off Type 2 diabetes. Short bursts of exercise is very beneficial. I do squats. I do as many as I can, usually about 30 to 50 at a time. It really gets the heart pumping. You can flop into a chair afterwards. Ok, don’t know how to do a squat? Here’s how. I clasp my hands in front of my chest, but you could also cross your arms, just as long as they aren’t dangling. Then lower your bottom/butt as if you were going to sit down. Go as low as you can, and just as you are about to touch the imaginary seat, rise up back to standing. You can do them as quick or slow as you like. When doing it for the first time, keep going until you reach your limit. But at least try to do 5. If you can’t do 5, you don’t need me to tell you that you are in bad shape. There is no need to do more than 50 at a time. 100 will not be any more beneficial than 50. And 3 lots of 20 will be more beneficial than 50 straight. 6 lots of 10 will be extremely beneficial for those bordering obese. This blog hasn’t been to target the obese. I very much doubt that any obese person will read it. An obese person has proved to the world/society that they do not possess the initiative, inspiration or capacity to change their lifestyle, knowing full well that how they live is slowing killing them. But they continue down that same ruinous path.

Before I mentioned symptoms and I need to expand on the subject. Natural is far superior to un-natural, processed or toxins. If you think that processed, toxic pharmaceuticals are superior to natural, unadulterated, then you are in that spiritually impoverished group. I’m sorry to label anyone that way, but there is no other way to put it. Anyone who thinks pharmaceuticals are the only way to health; they are sadly mistaken brainwashed individuals who deserve to be ill. All illnesses that come from within are self-inflicted. Not so from external source. Burns, accidents and rashes from plants are more likely life lessons and in the case of permanent damage, would be karmic. Not applicable to babies which is another subject.

Alone time is very important. Every person needs time alone to think deeply or to just contemplate. It’s very good for your spirit. Your soul remains your soul, no matter how you live. Listen to your ‘gut’ feelings and always listen to your conscience. Your conscience was given to you to guide YOU through life, not be guided by someone else’s whim or ego. Religious people have lost contact with their conscience and intuition. They rely on someone else or a group of other people to tell them what is right

and what is not. Every single human being and some animals have a conscience. It resides in your spirit and can be accessed at any time, even under extreme stress. It never lies to you. It will always tell you right from wrong and that’s all you need to know. Billions of people worldwide rely on another human to tell them how to live, what to say and how to even dress. My conscience is so far removed from these teachings that I can’t believe that the teachings even ever came from anyone’s conscience. It seems more like to me that it was a way to control society. That’s just my opinion. Could also be fact.

As a Gnostic, I am privy to certain knowledge that I have brought with me into this Physical Incarnation. There are things that are forbidden and disobey the Laws of Nature. Murder, when not in self defence. Sexual intercourse with an animal. Rape by a human being of a human being. Anal sex. Paedophilia. Violence and cruelty. Deception. Greed and more.

Of course I have not addressed everything here. I have enough knowledge to write a book. This is for people who genuinely want to improve their health. If you decide that all that I have written is rubbish and that pharmaceuticals are the way to go, you are already unhealthy, and your health will deteriorate the more pills you pop. Whilst one symptom is suppressed another will appear needing yet more drugs. The very strange thing is that the War on Drugs never tackles pharmaceuticals which are way more harmful than heroine and cocaine as far as damage to the body and deaths is concerned except of course for overdose. I have never taken either, but I have used marijuana for over 4 decades the same length of time that I have not had the flu’ or a common cold.

I should mention here that I do get symptoms which I attend to immediately. For instance if I get a sore throat I step up vitamin C. I normally take 1 gram a day, so I step up to 2 grams and I spray my throat with colloidal silver; sore throat gone. If I were to neglect it and moan, “oh I’ve got such a sore throat boo hoo,” and do nothing, I deserve to get a full blown cold. I spend a lot of my Age Pension on supplements. I have never been in hospital since I lived at home under the jurisdiction of my parents who made me have a tonsillectomy at age 17 when my tonsils were healthy. I should have sued them.

I am just feeling my age now since this terrible flood from cyclone Debbie. My driveway is one kilometre long and half of it is 4WD and steep. It got badly washed out and I have been digging out the drains and filling in ruts. I did it before the cyclone hit and again after. I have definitely over done it for my age. However when there is no one else to do the heavy work and the pension does not cover paying someone younger to do it, I have no choice. If I were unhealthy I would not be capable of doing such a back breaking job. I have 9 drains to dig out and one still blocked concrete drain which I tried to tackle yesterday, but the mud is too wet and sticky and my back already aching, so waiting for my back to improve and ground to dry out. Time and again I have stated on Facebook and Twitter that I am healthy, I’m 74 and that I haven’t had a cold or the flu’ for over 4 decades; yet not one person has ever asked me how.

If you want to comment and insult me, I’m fine with it. It has no reflection on my life. I just ask that you use logic. For a person to say that they use pharmaceuticals and they are healthy is not logic. Ask me any questions about stuff I may have left out.

Coronavirus or Covid-19



I’m no expert, not a doctor, nor do I know any more than what’s been on the news. But I will say that the news broadcasts have been wrong at times. How do I know? It is because figures branded about have been conflicted. On January 28th 2020 it was reported on ABC 4,500 confirmed cases and 106 deaths. We have no idea if this is a correct figure. For a start 4,500 is a rounded-off figure; it could be less or more. And we heard later that the Chinese were slow to report and that the number of cases had been kept low so as not to scare people.

29.1.20 it was 6,000 confirmed and170 deaths.

31.1.20 it was 8,000 confirmed and 212 deaths.

1.2.20 it was 10,000 confirmed and 258 deaths.

2.2.20 it was 12,000 plus confirmed and 300 plus deaths.

4.2.20 it was 17,000 plus confirmed and 370 plus deaths.

Then on Feb 5th 2020, unless I heard incorrectly it was announced that it had jumped to 90,000 plus confirmed and 549 plus deaths.

But on Feb 7th , two days later, the number of confirmed had receded to 34,000 plus confirmed and 600 plus deaths. A Chinese doctor said that there could be as many as 50,000 each week or 1,000 every day. I wasn’t sure if he meant that it had been already and to expect that, or that he thought that it will escalate to that in the future.

11.2.20 I wrote down 40,000 plus confirmed and 1,000 plus deaths.

13.2.20   59,000 plus confirmed and 1,300 deaths.

15.2.20  70,000 plus confirmed and 202,000 deaths. This is a huge jump in just two days. These are all in China. But now we have figures that I have no idea if they are just China or including world wide.

It must be known that influenza has always been a killer. While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year. CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.

The AP has released a wrap of the current numbers. There are a total 81,002 confirmed cases around the world, and 2,762 dead. Is it likely that the death toll will exceed 61,000? Nobody knows.

This is as it stood on Wednesday 26th February:

Mainland China: 78,064 cases, 2,715 deaths, mostly in Hubei province.

South Korea: 1,146 cases, 11 deaths

Japan: 860 cases, including 691 from a cruise ship docked in Yokohama, 4 deaths

Italy: 323 cases, 11 deaths. Iran: 95 cases, 15 deaths. Singapore: 91 cases

Hong Kong: 81 cases, 2 deaths. Thailand: 37 cases. United States: 60 cases

Taiwan: 31 cases, 1 death. Australia: 23 cases. Malaysia: 22. Bahrain: 17

Vietnam: 16 cases. Germany: 17. United Arab Emirates: 13 cases

United Kingdom: 13. France: 14 cases, 1 death. Canada: 11. Kuwait: 11

Macao: 10 cases. Iraq: 5. Philippines: 3 cases, 1 death. India: 3. Spain: 6

Russia: 2. Israel: 2. Oman: 2. Austria: 2. Lebanon: 1. Belgium: 1. Nepal: 1

Sri Lanka: 1. Sweden: 1. Finland: 1. Egypt: 1.Nigeria:1.  Algeria: 1. Afghanistan: 1. Saharan Africa: 1. Croatia: 1. Lithuania 1. Switzerland: 1. New Zealand: 1.  Cambodia: 1.  Already these statistics will be out of date.

Now Cambodia only has one case, yet a cruise liner the Westerdam docked there and guests were not even quarantined and were allowed to leave the ship. But the Diamond Princess docked in the Japan’s port of Yokohama, 860 cases resulted and 4 deaths after two weeks of cabin quarantine. What did Japan do wrong and what did Cambodia do right?

More than 600 individuals on board the Diamond Princess Cruise ship off Japan tested positive for the coronavirus. There were 3,700 passengers and crew on the ship when it first docked off Japan.

409 of the 2,257 passengers and crew have left Cambodia for their homes across the globe. The rest remain in hotels in Phnom Penh, the capital, or on the ship, although I think everyone has now left the ship.

Prime Minister Hun Sen’s decision to allow the Westerdam cruise liner entry appeared to be political. He is the region’s longest-serving ruler and a close ally of China; he greeted the ship without a mask and advised his entourage to do the same. Are there coronavirus cases we don’t know about?

Second positive tests have  been reported in China and In Japan, a woman who had the virus and recovered has now tested positive for a second time

Australia’s emergency medical services are already stretched, and a pandemic could overwhelm them doctors warn.

Recently leaked comments attributed to Professor John Nicholls from the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Pathology suggest he believes weather conditions will be a key factor in the demise of the coronavirus. Professor Nicholls referenced the 2002–03 SARS outbreak and said environmental conditions – such as temperature, humidity and sunlight – are crucial factors in a virus’ ability to survive and infect people. While coronavirus can exist on surfaces for days, conditions such as temperature and humidity must be favourable. Covid-19 is primarily spread through close contact with someone who is infected he said.

It is now determined that the virus may take up to 30 days to incubate, which means those rescued from Wuhan, the city at the centre of the epidemic, and several other nearby cities may still be infectious.

The decline of Accountability in Australia Part Two



After posting my first blog on this subject, I was asked to put forward some solutions. This certainly is needed; however, the present government will not implement them. So I could say, ‘what’s the point?’

I’m going to be a little drastic here; but this is only how I see things. Firstly, this government is degrading this country and many people in it. The government must go. How we get that done is another matter. There is no higher authority to do the job. The two most able are impotent: The Queen and the Governor-General. Without their muscle, what is left? Us! We the People! We have to do it. But how? As I pointed out, many Quiet Australians are not on Social Media. If they are, they hardly ever turn up on our Timelines. And when they do, we go off at them, often abusing them; so why would they change their thinking?

We need to appeal to those Quiet Australians in a manner they are used to and in places where they see it. Slogans, not three-word slogans, but seven to twelve words printed on A4 paper in large Print. Eye-catching. Plaster your town with them. Glue them to bus stops, on walls and notice boards. You could even get people to sign them before putting them up.

Here are a few suggestions:










These are just suggestions. You may come up with better ones. We need swinging voters to change their minds, but to what? That is the million dollar question. Anthony Albanese is a weak leader and not Prime Minister material. He is easily talked over and sounds boring. Labor needs a new Leader, or they will lose the next election AGAIN. This time for real. He is so insignificant that I have never seen his wife or even know if he has one. I have seen the gorgeous Chloe Shorten several times. Chloe, the daughter of the very beautiful soul Quentin Bryce, once Governor-General of Australia and the best one we have ever had.

I know what should happen, but there is no pathway to achieving it. Scott Morrison stole the election from Bill Shorten. Bill Shorten would have won with a landslide if: no lies had been told by LNP candidates, if Clive Palmer had not invested $80 m worth of ads all lying about Labor; and if the Electoral Commission had not allowed cheating in two electorates. As it was, Labor won more Primary votes than the Liberals. The Liberals are nothing on their own. They are Leaners, leaning on the Nationals. The ALP is a Stand Alone Party.

Bill Shorten is far superior to Anthony Albanese in almost every way. I have one complaint with Mr Shorten though, and that is over Adani. I have the same with Albo. NO NEW COAL MINES! PERIOD! I do not want an Albo to be our PM, any more than I like a Scomo. It’s degrading the title. And yes, Bob Brown’s stupid convoy was very destructive and helped lose seats for Labor. He should have known better than to dive up from Tasmania emitting all those CO2’s, protesting against Adani. It’s not like they had a hope in hell of winning the election. Their actions were destructive on so many levels. If nothing changes because no one was prepared to do anything, I will have to vote Informal. I’ve done it before. I write on the ballot paper NO ONE WORTH VOTING FOR.

The jury is still out on carbon emissions. I haven’t studied it, but from a lay point of view, carbon isn’t a problem, though too much may be the problem. It has always been the particles that bother me, even nanoparticles. In the old days, we called them fumes, including smoke. I love the smell of burning leaves or a bonfire. We used to do that once; but the smoke from the bush fires was too much for our lungs this season and there has to be a solution found to lessen the impact of smoke on not only human lungs, but all animals and plants. They can’t wear P2 masks.

It should be illegal to steal an election, but this is a trend nowadays. Trump stole the election from Hillary Clinton through lies and cheating. When the most powerful country in the world does it, why not follow in their footsteps? I tell you why not. It is destroying the country, it is destroying humanity and it is destroying our TRUST in governments. It makes democracy look feeble.

We need to find a way to regain the government that was stolen and install the Hon. Bill Shorten MP as Prime Minister where he belongs. So much damage has already been done, he would have a monumental task ahead, I know. He could and would rectify some of the destruction, such as cuts to services.

You had better not talk over Bill Shorten, David Speers, he’ll soon put you in your place, which incidentally is back at SkyNews.

The solutions that I have put forward here will not save the planet. It will take a Think Tank of suitable people to do that. We must build better, farm better, recycle better and generally live better. Instead of concentrating on money, we need to concentrate on a more efficient way of doing everything and that includes our waste, even if it costs more. So what? Some businesses will close anyway, regardless. We must concentrate on Well Being. This is important. ATM we have a nation bulging with sick people, both mentally and physically. How good is Australia? Man burns wife and kids. Is this our new norm?

Methane from waste can be used as power. Less methane, more power. Anyone talking about that? Malcolm Turnbull was right when he said that we have to be innovative. More money for RND. And tax the rich, they can afford it. Tax the churches; they don’t deserve it and no funding for private schools. I went to a private boarding school which did not receive any funding. It does now and it now has better facilities. It has them now, they must rely on fees. Get rid of those Franking Credits. You see, now everything is affordable.

To sum up, we are up Shit Creek without a paddle. We can sit in our houses complaining on our Social Media sites, or we can act. I am not in favour of peaceful protests, especially now that face recognition is everywhere and we don’t even know where it is. Punishment awaits in one form or another. We must be doers, not complainers. I asked people to write to the Governor-General. I posted all my five letters to my blog. But as far as I know, only one person obliged. It was just too much trouble. That attitude will get us NoWhere. Have I made myself clear?

The decline of Accountability in Australia Part One



I was asked by a Twitter Follower for my thoughts on the subject, although I have changed the title from ‘and’ to ‘of’.

This is a difficult subject, as many thoughts and ideas have already been floated around Social Media. Many people putting the blame squarely on the Prime Minister Scott Morrison. However, my belief is that it started a long time ago.

John Howard said there will never be a GST under his watch. Guess what? The very next election he took it as part of his policies.

My pension was cut with no notification when I was on Sole Parent Benefit. I was never sent a letter telling me that it had been cut or why. I found out at the ATM. I had been drawing on my savings for weeks with no clue. This was under the  Keating Government.

If I were to research the subject, I may find hundreds of times the government of the day said they would or would not do something that was reneged on at a later date. In the case of Tony Abbott, the very next week. There is no point in listing them all here, so I will address the present situation.

Scott Morrison is a clever man and he is a prolific talker. He lies as a matter of course, that is, he doesn’t have to pre-think up the lies he is going to tell. He also has a keen memory and can remember most of the lies he has told, so that he can repeat them again and again.

Having been trained in marketing, he has used this formula to ‘sell’ his message with embedded lies to a hapless audience, those ‘quiet Australians’  that lap up everything he says, because they think he sounds believable. He has worked out that lies pay off, that there are no consequences, even if caught out. If caught, deny, deny and keep on denying. He obviously has instructed his Cabinet to do the same.

Since his surprising win at the last election, (he even surprised himself) he has rightly believed that he can do no wrong in the eyes of the Quiet Australians. He most likely knows that quiet Australians are those that are not on Social Media.

There are also those noisy Australians that are ruled by Rupert Murdoch. When you hear those oddballs on Sky News saying outrageous things that even they couldn’t possibly believe, you know that someone is behind it, especially when they all say the same things. Rupert Murdoch is no fool; he loves fools though, as they are so easily persuaded. He supports the government that looks after the rich and who will do his bidding. This is the Liberal Party in Australia. It is any conservative party he has his talons in.

Australia will continue to decline, as long as the government of the day continue to lie and make false promises with no consequence. The Opposition must call out all lies and be very careful not to mislead the public in any way. They must learn to read the public’s wishes that will benefit the country and call out all wrongdoing by the government that is harming the country.

Anthony Albanese is not a strong leader. He is slow to call out the government’s wrongdoing. He is not strong on Climate Change and this is a public concern. He also needs a new set of dentures, so his voice can project clearly and decisively. If he continues to support new coal mines, he may as well join the Liberals.

It is everybody’s duty to be aware of government policies and the direction the Party is taking. It is up to you to know what is involved in the new religious laws soon to be inflicted on us. It will enable a small minority to do some horrible things and with no regard for those with no religious affiliation.

The new Home Office run by Peter Dutton is a dangerous scheme enabling the government to detain those that disagree with their policies. Anyone peacefully protesting against anything to do with government policies is at risk.

The more facial recognition, the more restrictions placed on us, the more miserable our lives become. The Liberal government has no regard for the poor, the aged, the disabled or the mentally ill. This is your fault, so suck it up. You should have ‘had a go’ and made a lot of money, and then we could respect you and help you make more. If you are poor, you do not have power and you will be trampled on and left for dead.

People who are well off are not affected, so they think everything is going well. But the truth is the Liberals are not good economic administrators. They have not made decisions that benefit the nation. The trickle-down effect does not work; this has been proven over and over again. Giving to the rich and the well-off does not stimulate the economy. Raising New Start will not only stimulate the economy, it will enable those without a job to get employment.

The bush fires opened many eyes as to how the LNP government works. The lack of care and dereliction of duty was on display and the public was not impressed. Even the Main Stream Media was unimpressed by the government’s lack of concern and slowness to act. This is ongoing and affected survivors are still left wanting through no fault of their own.

As long as governments ignore the needs of First Nation People; as long as they make policies that benefit government and not the country and its inhabitants and as long as religion over-rules secularism, this country will not prosper.

Every country needs a head of State that can over-rule a government when wrongdoing has occurred. As most know I have written five letters of complaint to the Governor-General and his reply was that he can’t get involved. Then who can? The answer as it stands, no one.

My 5th and last letter to the Governor-General of Australia


Sandra.E.Barlow                                                      December 16th 2019

Suite 240, Shop 2,

52 Currumbin Creek Road,

Currumbin Waters, Qld. 4223


His Excellency the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (retired) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia

This is my fifth and last letter to you. I hoped that I had previously pricked your conscience to act on behalf of all decent Australians to ensure that this present government does not continue to blatantly lie in Parliament, during election campaigns or on the media. I know that you can’t dismiss a government and I also know that you wouldn’t even if you could. I had an expectation that you would have a quiet word with the Prime Minister and tell him that he must not lie to the Australian People and neither must any of his Ministers. Surely this isn’t an unreasonable request, or expectation. How can we stop them lying?

I thank you for the reply I received, sent on 24th  October telling me that you cannot get involved. As disappointing as it was, it was expected. The government still hasn’t raised Newstart by at least $75 p.w, which would benefit those struggling to find work and boost the economy. The position of Governor-General is impotent and I’m not quite sure why it is such an esteemed position.

The Prime Minister has not addressed the crisis this country is experiencing, especially NSW regarding bushfires. He goes to New Zealand, where he can’t do a thing, when his own country is on fire, and where he can do plenty. 740 plus houses have been burnt to the ground in NSW alone, six people have died, yet he has turned his back on his country and state and is now holidaying in Hawaii while Australia burns. This is a disgrace. Marise Payne is now in New Zealand where she will just be in the way. Why is New Zealand so important and Australia is rubbish? The Prime Minister should be dealing with this crisis here, it is an emergency. 20 houses destroyed yesterday in the Blue Mountains from a back-burning operation. Many people on Twitter are wishing his Hillsong Church would burn down. His Cult religion is also a worry to many people. The Religious Discrimination Bill discriminates on secular Australians. Section 116 of the Act states: The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion or for imposing any religious observance or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust. Where is the protection for secular Australians?

I have one last question, if you can’t stop the Prime Minister, his Ministers and staff from lying, who can? This government has to be stopped from behaving disgracefully, dishonestly and setting a very poor example to our young. We have already had a Climate Rebellion where thousands marched to no avail; does the government really want a revolution? Surely not. If we can’t complain about the government to the Governor-General, who can we complain to? I need you to answer this.



P.S. We are the laughing stock of the world regarding Climate Change.

P.P.S. If I were to write about every complaint regarding this government it would amount to at least one hundred pages.


You can also write to the Governor-General. What if he were to receive thousands of hard copy letters. He would have to do something. Here is his address:

His Excellency the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd),

Governor-General  of the Commonwealth of Australia,

Government House,

Macquarie Street,

Sydney, NSW 2000

Drought, lack of water and bush fires

Fri 15/11/2019 9:36 AM
  • editor@theweekly.net.au

To the Editor

What do you think of this?

I have not had running water since last December. Both my creeks have been bone dry for a year. I have two small rainwater tanks. There is nowhere to put a bigger one and anyway I couldn’t afford it, I am on the Age Pension.

When my tanks ran low, my daughter and I went from 2 buckets to shower and wash our hair to just one and now half a bucket. Terrified at not having a drop of water I have been keeping clean with baby wipes and we buy our drinking water. Tyalgum village had showers in the toilets in the park. I drove the 26 kilometres there and back to have a cold shower and wash my hair, only to find the ladies shower is not working.

I wrote a letter to Mr Scott Ousby to ask for the shower to be fixed. He informed me that the shower has purposely been decommissioned. But the men’s shower was not. When I asked in at Tweed Shire Council why men need a shower and women don’t, I was met with hostility. I was put on the phone to Mr Ousby who said that he didn’t know that the men’s shower was working. I told him that I would be showering in the men’s shower. I went the next week to shower only to find that the tap has been removed and plugged up. This was done deliberately to spite me, as he had no idea there was a shower till I told him.

On the phone, he informed me that there was a drought. How could he possibly think that I didn’t know that? I told him that I had rung the General Store and they said there were no water restrictions. Guess what. Tyalgum suddenly went to Level 2 Water Restrictions. That is 144 litres per person per day and watering garden for one hour only every other day. If we are in drought, why wasn’t Tyalgum already on Water Restrictions?

I have left posts complaining about the situation on Tweed Shire Council Facebook page and I have written to the Mayor Katie Milne. Mr Ousby told me that as a property owner it is my responsibility to provide myself with water. The first letter he sent me had a list of water carriers, as if I could find that for myself. My driveway is one kilometre long, 4WD only very narrow and in bad repair. No water truck could get up and they wouldn’t come to fill my tiny tanks.

I live on 245 acres of forest and I am prepared for a fire. I have been trying to find out ahead of time where the bush fire evacuation centre is for me. It’s the Hall in Tyalgum, a weatherboard building. My house is solid brick. I went to the Show Grounds to see if the Murwillumbah one was there. No, even if I am evacuating I still have to pay $25 per day to pitch a tent. I feel shame, having paid my rates on time every time for the past 40 years and they don’t even provide rubbish removal.  P.S I am 77 years old.

Please ReTweet and Share

I have just received an email from the editor from The Weekly and they asked me if I could go to Murwillumbah on Monday.


I am so sorry for your situation and I hope everything is going okay.

If possible I would like to arrange Monday to get a photo? Would that be possible?

Thank you,


Editor TVW 0447300258 (02) 6672 4443

My reply:

Hello Jonathan,

Two years ago I loved my house and property. I’ve had a Prize-Winning garden, both the Tweed Shire Council for Environmentally Friendly Garden and the Murwillumbah Garden Club coming second to The Youngblutts in Country Garden. Now my garden is rubbish from the drought and the last 4 summers were too hot and humid for me. I have craniofacial hyperhidrosis. I have not had any visitors for 4 years. My daughter became homeless last year when her rent went up $100 from $180 to $280 and so had to move back home with me. She brought with her a two-bedroom unit of her belongings. Consequently, my house is in turmoil. Plus having no water has been difficult to keep clean.

Hey again,

Sounds like quite a battle.

I’d like to come to you if possible?

Thank you,


Hello again,

I’ve been thinking about my situation and I really appreciate that the Weekly is interested in my plight; however my letter was to find out how people think about the Tweed Shire Council’s treatment of my situation and not an emphasis on my situation. That’s why I headed it What do you think of This?

I don’t want the story to be about me when over 300 houses have been lost and 4 people have died. I want the story to be about Tweed Shire Council and their lack of humanity and care for a 40 year long rate payer, their slack running of the water crisis and lack of empathy for my situation. I want people to know who Mr Scott Ousby is and what he is capable of.

Please just print my letter to the editor on the letters page. That would be really good. Thanks

My Redacted Submission to Joint Standing Committee

My third letter to the G-G

His Excellency the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (retired) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia

This is my third letter to you and so far I haven’t received a reply from you. I am wondering if it is because you are extremely busy all the time, or that you receive a lot of mail and I have to wait my turn in the queue.

I’ll plough on with my dissatisfaction with this government. By the way, I submitted a report to the Joint Standing Committee listing many complaints such as I have done with you. I received a call from a female (I didn’t get her name) a few days ago telling me that Scott Morrison has the right of reply as I have accused him of lying. All his lies can be fact checked. They are blatant, shocking and despicable lies and he has the right of reply????

The nerve of this man! I don’t get mail delivery, but I will be checking tomorrow. No email at this point either. So Scomo has the right of reply. I guess it’s something I should expect from someone who is called Scomo. What an embarrassment! We have three world leaders if you count Australia, that are a laughing stock of the people, worldwide. Decent, ethical people that is. Many Christians do not fall under that category. The Vatican is not what many ignorant, but dutiful Christians think it is. How their behaviour goes unpunished is a mystery.

My letter to the Governor-General

His Excellency the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (retired) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia

I am contacting you because of the dire situation Australia finds itself in since the election of Scott Morrison PM.

I am quite certain that you have no idea of public opinion, or the hurt and cruelty that is being perpetrated by this current government.

There are too many issues to list them all, so I will concentrate on the most crucial: Every time I turned on my TV or radio and listened to a news broadcast during the election campaign, I heard at least one Liberal or National representative tell a lie. They were blatant lies that could be fact-checked. Even when a reporter challenged them, they continued to spin and embellish the lie. This is wrong, unethical and sinful.

Clive Palmer also ran ads where more lies were told about the Labor Party. The public was bombarded with his ads which contributed to Labor’s loss at the election. Scott Morrison did not win the election on policies, on merit or on honesty. He won it on lies. How do you feel about lies in general and what is your opinion on unethical elections?

Scott Morrison PM and Josh Frydenberg MP Treasurer, have decimated the economy. They have run it down with poor policies on stimulation. The idea of trickledown economics and giving to the rich only makes the rich richer and the poor poorer. Raising New Start is the only way to revive stimulus and get the economy going again. Lowering interest rates has run its course and will not improve anything from going any lower.

Scott Morrison’s beliefs and religion are a burden to the poor. We feel despised and worthless in his eyes, just because we are not wealthy. I used to enjoy life and looked forward to the future, but not anymore. I am continually depressed about the direction this government is heading: The lack of commitment to Climate Change in the face of record temperatures and raging bush fires, which the government couldn’t care less about. Also, the introduction of the Indue Card humiliates those doing their best along with those who are not. Drug testing Welfare recipients, is more humiliation. People take drugs because they are unhappy and can’t deal with life. They need help, not demonization.

Lastly, I am disturbed and shocked at the waste of money that is going on with both the NSW and Federal Governments: The tearing down of Allianz Stadium a typical example. Perhaps I can add here the level of corruption is staggering. Labor’s is being addressed, but Liberal’s isn’t. The amount of Social Housing that could have been built for the homeless and those close to it with the Allianz Stadium demolition alone would have been considerable. We are looking like a third world country with all the homeless sleeping rough in cities, while China spreads its wings and puts us to shame.

I went into shock on Sunday, May 19th when the realisation that my life was about to take a turn for the worse really sank in and I now live in constant fear of the future, fear of bush fires and unbearable temperatures yet to come.

It is extremely disappointing to come to the conclusion that the Governor-General is impotent to alter the course of bad governments. But it appears that is how it is.


Please do comment and let me know if you are prepared to act, to do something yourself. One million hard copy unique letters to the Governor-General would have an effect. It may not change government, but it may change how it governs.

I’d be happy to post good letters here with your permission.

Addresses for the Governor-General

This page takes you to a form to place your complaint. This is what I used. I am posting a hard copy on Wednesday 18th September.


I will also be making a submission to the Joint Standing Committee. I will post it on this site once it has been submitted and posted publically by them.

I have now written my second letter to the GG. I can’t post it here until I have sent it.

My letter to Luke Howarth and his reply

Attention Luke Howarth MP

To say that I am shocked by your statement on ABC RN on Tuesday morning July 9th, is the least of it. It was yet more confirmation that this Liberal and Nationals Government is shirking their responsibility regarding Human Rights and Human Respectability and Responsibility. #RRR

May I make a suggestion and that is to equate ‘small percentage’ with those who willingly choose to be homeless, the swaggie, the surfie and the traveller. I really don’t think you have any conception of why people become homeless. I would really appreciate you being up-front and telling the public your version of why Homelessness occurs.

My beautiful daughter became homeless last year. She had been in her 2 bedroom unit ten years. Her rent went up from $180 to $280. Now is this fair? She was a model tenant. The man who is renting her old unit hasn’t turned on the electricity for over a year. He walks around with a torch. He can’t cook, watch TV or have a fan on in this increasing heatwave after heatwave. No doubt you live in air-conditioning, when others are suffering terribly.

I am now asking you publicly (as this will accompany my petition) to plan an economical way to eliminate homelessness.

I have many suggestions I can share with you.

P.S. If you think this job is too difficult, ask for it to be given to someone who will attend to it ethically and humanely.
