@Pay Attention & @Frank, yeah good comments boys, I'll go along with that, and its not diametrically different to my POV. If there is a community expectation that we should provide an amenity value for a community who want something nice to look at, then it's incumbent on the community to pay for it. Fair enough. My comments were about upping inputs to grow more stuff that people only want to pay less for. Bugger 'em.
Yeah Alan thats right, get the bulldozers in and cut the lot down, bugger the environment and the Murray Darling basin, lets produce some more stuff we cant sell and make our air quality look like Chinas. You know it makes sense.
Actually my first priority is feeding my family, not Asia, so if we grow a bit less it might create shorts in the market place which will push the price up and improve our profitability. I've spent the last 60 years growing more for less, and am sick of it. Lets try growing less for more and see if it works
Hooray. About time. For far too long the Liberals have treated rural people as defacto libs - but really most farmers are conservationists at heart and closer aligned to a green point of view - stuff like coal seam gas, renewable energy etc., where the Libs just want to sell everything off to foreign interests and leave nothing in Australian hands for our kids.
Whilst Regional Australia give their sitting members a 73% majority, they must accept the fact that Nothing Will Happen in the bush. Libs won't spend money here - why should they, they own the electorate, and neither will Labor because they'll never win a seat. We must vote in such a way as to marginalize country electorates to make them a prize worth fighting for. And Labor must realize that the live export ban was not 'very regrettable' it was an absolute disaster. Labor won a lot of regional seats in the Kevin07 election and it was mainstream voters that got them in, not greeny lefties
this of course all hinges on the notion that dingoes will bypass easy to kill calves and run down fleet footed kangaroos.
Aaaaaahhhh look, theres a flock of Landrace pigs passing overhead, maybe the dingoes could catch some of them.
