Who Cares?

This article took not one, but two journos to produce, and can be filed under "Who Cares".
Policies please, not where pollies went to school 30 years ago or where they send their brats.
Murdoch gave Melbourne readers another story of dubious newsworthiness today. Not Rupert this time, but Linsay in The Age. In a story about a dog bite in Darwin, Lindsay mananged to drag out a coalition MP's (Dave Tollner) past indescretions which were not related to his dubious story.
Lindsay, you are on the scoreboard for "the hack".
Tim Colebatch has written a great little report about overseas debt while David Uren continues to write about good economic news concerning oil prices even though it is based on a highly speculative ABARE report.
David is getting another vote for "The Hack of 2004" award for shamelessly avoiding any discussion of economic problems facing the country.
Mark Dunn and Ian McPhedran are now in the running for "The Hack" after this report about Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
Their lead paragraph "SEPTEMBER 11 terror mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed obtained a visa to visit alleged Australian-based sympathisers in the month before the 2001 attacks" turns a claim into a fact. Very shoddy.
The rest of their report is based on an unnamed source. Let's hope he (or she) is not the same source used in Rupert's tabloids' massive beatups about Terror training camps in Victorian forests, the Melbourne-based Tawhid terror group, and "Terror Australis" where up to a hundred al-Qaida members were already in Australia in September 2001.

I am an independent candidate running for the Federal Senate. I have found it rather frustrating to find a forum that allows open discussion of policies and proposals for other than the main parties. To address this I would like to invite you to go to http://www.webcauldron.com/senate to assess the policies I will be standing for in the up coming election. I feel this is an important part of the process of Democracy and hope even if I am not successful, that the policies I have suggested may be brought into the public debate to add diversity and a new point of view to the discussion that I hope will add to our great country's future and success.

Could I humbly suggest you direct people to http://www.comparepolicies.com.au a site which like your own tries to show unbiasedly the policies of most current federal election candidates.

My Policies

Support Australian Inventions and Intellectual Property, commercialize and become share holders then export the evolving technologies

Reduce Insurance and Litigation Costs, cap legal fees

Pro- republic

Assist the mining industry our largest exporter by providing incentives for exploration

Value add to our mineral resources - export finished product rather than bags of rocks
Export Titanium turbines not bags of rutile
Export ceramic engine parts not bags of zirconia

Take responsibility for our Uranium exports enrich and export finished fuel rods with SERIAL NUMBERS so they are not used in foreign nuclear weapons but returned here for reprocessing and storage. VALUE ADD

Toxic Waste management is a federal problem - we need an Incinerator to reduce the hazard to all future Australians

Farm Kangaroo which are low fat and drought resistant

Introduction
I believe we live in the best country on the globe. Its conservative Westminster Parliamentary System has given us a stable high standard of living, good social support and national respect throughout the world. we are a resource rich nation, well educated and relatively healthy people. We are renowned for our sporting prowess, our inventiveness and the ability to provide answers to global problems.
Having said that we cannot be complacent and rely on others to take care of our problems and development at their leisure. The existing system has, in my humble opinion, several issues which could be addressed easily and economically and allow a substantial increase in our productivity and standard of living.
It would appear that Australian legal fraternity is over represented in Canberra. I would prefer a more even mix of real Australians with different life experiences to look into the decisions that govern our lives. I am therefore very much in favor of more independents standing for parliament thus diluting the continuum of the existing two party system. This way, issues may be debated more effectively rather than rubber stamped by the disciples of the governing party.
Two key issues I am interested in are involved with our current export policies. Australia is excellent at exporting two major products Rocks and Brains. When in fact we should be exporting value added finished goods and Intellectual property maintaining control and a share of these resources even after export.
We have been on the privatization roller-coaster of converting all utilities including health and education into user paid businesses. Do Australians still really own anything? How long before we sell our Police and Defense forces to some foreign company the way we just sold our chief defense force communications satellite to the Singaporeans. Why don't we just put all our confidential information on the internet and save them the trouble of decoding it. Whilst competition and privatization has its place, the infrastructural requirements for our country folk seems distinctly lacking. You just have to look at the decline in rural centres infrastructure over recent years to see what I mean.
The often used "competition reduces the price to the consumer" argument totally forgets to mention that in the process the thousands loosing their jobs through economic rationalization, especially over 40 year olds, now have to be supported by social security paid by taxes from those left in the work force.
When I was young the social standard was the husband worked as the bread winner, and the wife stayed home and brought up the children. Whether that is a good or bad concept is up to the individual, but these days it is no longer an available choice. Today a "standard" family cannot survive on a single average salary. Both partners have to work and the children are often brought up by the crèche and school.
Australia is a vast continent with a low population. Is the government going to tell me that after privatization of Telstra that a person at Birdsville will pay the same as person at Bondi to have their phone connected? We are not America or Europe we do not have a town every 20 miles to spread the cost evenly.
I believe if an investment scheme, along the lines of the old government guaranteed Aussie Bonds, were introduced in a modified form, many of the large scale infrastructure projects, we need to implemented, could be paid and owned by Australians rather than foreign companies.
I would like to run as a federal senate candidate, but as an independent I have " an ice blocks hope in the Simpson desert" of getting any of my policies demonstrated to the Australian Public. We are stuck with a two megalithic party bound mediocrity, where we have to accept a pile of policies we strongly disagree with in order to get a few of the policies we would like to see implemented. We need independent senators so we can conduct fair and logical debate amongst thinkers from a variety of backgrounds who are NOT locked into the "Party Line".
My policies, while often controversial are I believe, logical and well thought out
So how do I persuade people like yourselves to take the risk and give real Australians like myself the opportunity to show a real alterative to this stagnant pond...?

1 Inventions and Intellectual Property
Support for Australian Innovation and commercialization of Australian Intellectual Property and Inventions at grass roots level
Question. Which of the following Australian Inventions were capitalized and commercialized in Australia...?
The Combined Harvester, Barbed Wire, Penicillin, the new electric bullet (huge contract to the US Pentagon), the Wankel Engine, The Sarich engine, The Aircraft "Blackbox", the Victa Lawn mower, The Victor Airtourer, Alan Finkels (Axon Industries) Genome inventions and Parkinson treatment augmentation, the Hills Hoist.
Answer. ONLY the Hills Hoist.
Could we not implement a mechanism to take educated demonstratable patentable ideas through the bureaucratic, IP, commercialization and marketing processes in exchange for a moderate share holding in the finished product. Remember 9 out of 10 may fail. But the revenue generated by royalties of the successful projects have the potential to support the next 10 applicants. This will help plug the brain drain, generate export technology dollars and keep one of our most precious assets here in Australia
Most Inventors are Technocrats .. very good at solving technical problems but usually not particularly business savvy.
Currently R&D Assistance only goes to those companies that are competent at filling out the overly complex application forms through their massive banks of solicitors, accountants and advisors. These companies who in reality are fully financially competent do not really need extra finance. NONE goes to the real inventors at the grassroots level... ABSOLUTELY NONE!
Why don't we invest and become shareholders in this intellectual property by assisting with commercialization and patenting. Then receive benefit as royalties in the future by marketing the intellectual property worldwide as an export.

2. Reduce Insurance and Litigation Costs
A major cost to small business is the prohibitive cost of insurance. It is a guilt based system where negligence must be proven. The "no one at fault" innocent permanently disabled victim has very little chance of getting any compensation with the present system.
Rationalising the Insurance and particularly the Legal industry costs would seem to be in order. A QC may get $10,000/day this seems a bit ridiculous when a doctor saving a life gets far less This is in part the cause of the massive blow out in insurance costs where legal professionals get most as fees and victim gets very little.
I look at the fiasco of the Seal Rocks Tourist Facility at Phillip Island. As I understand it the entire complex, buildings infrastructure people wages electricity car parks etc... the lot cost around $10million. Apparently there was an agreement for financial involvement by the government in this project, when the new government reneged it was taken to court. The process took 6 months in a room with maybe half a dozen people to decide and debate the issue. fair enough, but the legal bill at the end was over $50 MILLION. How on earth can this obscene amount of money be justified...it would have been far more intelligent to give the project the 3-4million and saved the community some $45 million.

3. Mining
Support for the mineral exploration industry which is the seed for 30% of our exports.
Resolve the Aboriginal/Mining rights issue by royalties to traditional landowners through cash flow of finished exports rather than inhibitory blocking of exploration.
I look at Australia, a country that generates its income (28%) through mining. The mining industry consists of about 107,000 people. These 107,000, contrary to common belief do NOT hold enough political significance to alter government policy. Our standard of living is therefore primarily governed by the continued export of mineral products of which Coal, petroleum products, gold, iron ore and aluminium, are the main exports. Mining requires exploration to find new ore reserves to replace those mines which are running out of resource. There is a 5-10 year lead time from discovery to production in most mines. So for continuity, exploration has to be done today to permit a continuance of mining then export sales for the future. Now go and look at the figures for exploration expenditure in this country (which is dependent on mining) and compare it with other western nations such as the US and Canada. for example from a high of $1.2 billion in 1998 to less than $ 400 million today. In this same period American/Canadian companies Have invested $US 32 Billion in exploration and infrastructure just in South American. They must be fools, they are increasing their expenditure while we in our wisdom have cut it to 1/3 of what I would consider a minimum.
Not only are we shooting our primary industry in the foot, but we have allowed a large proportion of mining resource companies to be foreign owned. How much of the wealth generated actually ends up in Australia rather than in the pockets of foreign shareholders. Of the $20 billion of Northwest Shelf Gas being sold to China how much will actually end up in Australian Pockets. As I understand it China owns 25% so there goes $5billion with the remaining 75% owned by a conglomerate of 6 companies of which only one is partially Australian owned. Have we just given away another major Australian resource? No wonder Mr Downer is having difficulty negotiating a better deal for the East Timorese since having given away the resource we have nothing left to give the Timorese... How embarrassing.

4. Value add to our resources
Even given that some income remains in Australia, what do we actually export? ROCKS and cheap rocks at that. For example consider, we sell mineral sands to Japan for a few thousand dollars a ton, then buy it back in the form of finished zirconia ceramics for tens of thousands of dollars per kilo. Why aren't we value adding here in Australia and then exporting? Of the $20billion to be generated by North west shelf gas project how much will actually end up in Australia.... not much I would suggest. What about Uranium, Zirconia, Titanium, Vanadium, Tantalum and the Rare earth metals, all the same, exported as cheap rocks, then imported back at huge cost as finished product.
Value add to our mineral exports
Value add to Titanium exports
Value add to Zirconia Exports
Value add to Rare Earth metal exports
Value add to Tantalum metal exports
Value add to Vanadium metal Exports
Value add to Uranium serial numbered fuelrod exports

5. Take responsibility for our Uranium
Whether you agree with or disagree with the Uranium issue, we are a major supplier Uranium Ore. Australia has a substantial part (about 28 percent) of the world's low-cost uranium, and Canada 14 percent. It could therefore be argued that our Uranium has been used indirectly to produce over 10% of the worlds nuclear weapons. I feel it is therefore irresponsible to export bags of yellow cake. I believe it would be far more responsible to process, refine, enrich and then sell finished sealed glass fuel rods with SERIAL NUMBERS As part of the supply contract we should demand the return of the spent fuel rods for reprocessing and provide a facility for the long term storage of nuclear waste we have produced, thus guaranteeing that our uranium cannot be used for nuclear weapons production. This is not only morally correct but also allows us to value add to our product several times massively increasing the revenue from this resource, creating regional infrastructure and employment. I fully supported the Pangea Radioactive waste storage concept in conjunction with the synrock immobilization process as the most viable method of long term storage for the worlds nuclear waste. This is a politically "hot potato" but the data supports fully the concept and I defy any one to contradict its validity. This has to be a Federal Decision as inevitably local residents anywhere will justifiably object even if there where no risk, it is their right, but we must also think of the greater good. This may be controversial but beats hands down the green house effects of Coal burning...

6. Toxic Waste management
Industry provides product which we sell over seas and this is then reflected in our high standard of living. A hidden cost of this process is the inevitable production of an ever increasing volume of toxic intractable waste. Primarily at present this is stored or landfilled. Neither solution is viable or sustainable as it hides but does not get rid of the problem. An incinerator of the fluidized bed type is necessary for responsible management of a large portion this problem. This could be implemented immediately however where it is placed creates the standard problem of local objection. This must be addressed in the national interest at the expense of someone's back yard... Again this has to be a Federal Decision as inevitably local residents anywhere will justifiably object even if there where no risk, it is their right, but we must also think of the greater good.

7. Health
Health is a right in our society not a privileged. look at the disastrous situation in other countries where total privatization rules such as in the USA, where people die in ambulances being driven between hospitals that will not accept the patient. We have to take responsibility for Health as a little preventive maintenance now saves an excessive cost later. We have to remove the State vs. Federal protagonistic current approach and organize a central approach.
Treat Heroin as a medical problem rather than a legal problem - allow heroin trials
Cigarette Tax to be used to subsidized those products such as patches and nicorettes to stop the disease. It is cheaper to smoke than use these alternatives at present.
Take advantage of the screening that can be done in standard pathology blood tests. The current situation is that when a blood sample arrives a pathology lab it is placed in a sophisticated analyzer where the requested tests are actuated and conducted and the results returned and charged to the patient or doctor. Fair enough you say but are you aware that with the exception of a few tiny milliliters of solvent and reactant, the entire gamut of tests the machine is capable of, (perhaps 50 different tests), be could run for virtually no extra cost. With this added information many more life threatening disease could be spotted at an earlier stage where treatment could be effectively implemented. Again money overriding commonsense.
The placebo effect can have a temporary positive effect on up to 30% of people who are susceptible. Homeopathy, crystal therapy and a range of other alternate healing businesses fall into this category. These businesses have every right to operate no matter how ridiculous their basis is, but it is rip-off and outright charlatan fraud for them to suggest they have any professional or scientific credibility. An educational program should be introduced to protect people from their own ignorance. Look at the evidence and the facts.
Teach Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in school as mandatory
Teach business management and life skills in schools as mandatory

8. Organ Donation
I believe the majority of Australians recognise this as one of the most precious gifts anyone could give.
Each year thousands of good Australians die because they cannot get organs for a transplant. Even if a suitable donor has indicated his wish to donate this is often over turned by the immediate family who cannot appreciate the potential life giving gift the donor is making. This is understandable as it is almost always associated with this terrible period of grief. If however organ donation was made mandatory then many more good Australians would be given a chance at life. It is the inalienable right of all, due to religious or personal convictions, of anyone not to donate This could be achieved by simply indicating on their license or health card or in writing, their wish not to participate in donating their organs and this must be respected. In other words what I am suggesting is a complete reversal of the current situation.

9. Infrastructure
I fail to understand how a nation that was third in the world to launch a satellite and conducted one of the worlds greatest engineering feats the snowy mountains Hydroelectric Scheme cannot provide an investment scheme along the lines of the old Aussie bonds where Australians could invest and own a share of this countries wealth and infra structure. I am sure in the long term this would be a powerful adjunct to the existing superannuation and providing security and an economic base for Australian infrastructure The current policies seem too keen to sell off our precious assets foreign investors. Is it we no longer care or are we incapable of such engineering feats. Why couldn't we have financed the northwest shelf gas project our selves. This could finance major projects such as interstate fast rail, mining operations, wind farming, highways, satellite communications infrastructure beyond broadband, a better public health and education sectors etc etc.
Buy Back Telstra - why sell a viable Australian Asset just to see all the profits go overseas to foreign supermarkets?
Support a new Public Medical Scheme - Health is a right NOT a business.
Support the Public Education system, Education is a right NOT a BUSINESS.

10. Immigration
Immigration should be controlled but hysterical irrational xenophobia is out of hand and the concept of cue jumping is absolutely false.
Many of these boat people have shown initiative and have the money to by-pass the bureaucratic lies of "CUES" which in reality DO NOT exist in most of the inhospitable countries from which these refugees have originated. Perhaps we should instead welcome these boat people and pay setup costs and welcome them to Australia as we did in the 70s with the refugees from Vietnam. Remember we are well short of our UN obligations regarding settling of refugees in Australia.

11. Australia is, by world standards, massively over governed
My suggestion...reduce the number of politicians increase their salaries to get better people. There is not enough professional diversity amongst those that determine our laws. There is an over representation of solicitors and accountants but not enough of other professionals doctors, professors, scientists, company directors, union administrators and other normal Australian workers. These people would bring a wealth of life experience to our decision making processes. This is potentially a major fatal flaw in our society and should be addressed immediately. lets get more real Australians into parliament.

12. QA ISO9000 certification and competency standards
Superficially a great concept to improve efficiency, safety and competency. This however has gone way overboard. for example currently Microsoft System engineers course certification Version 5 takes about 6 months. To get a contract with the government of in major industry you must have this piece of paper. However Version 6 course has just come out... great! another 6 months course coming up. Oh by the way, when are any of these certified engineers going to do any work ... They are at school 12 months of the year..... Ridiculous.
This is to an extent middle management gone mad where previous long-term experience and commonsense are ignored and bureaucratic process rules. There is a limit.

13 Tax
Income Tax
Untaxed first $10K sliding to $50K then 30 cents in the dollar after that Flat Rate of 30%
GST Raise to 12.5%
You have seen the consequence of going to far if you wish to see a total collapse of our primary industries and the death of most rural centres. the loss of hospitals, education, communication and transport are all a direct consequence of an over reduced tax regime

14 Education
Education is right not a privilege in our society
Television is one of the most effective communication systems in existence. What a farce Free to air Television is, I am disillusioned with the pathetic content of the programs offered on Australian TV at present. There are however, those who can afford to get some choice through cable and satellite, but in Australia this is very expensively by world standards, They and their children can actually watch programs of considerable content The History, Discovery, Lifestyle, Ovation, Tech, Science, Biography Channels are extremely good, why don't we as a government buy these channels and broadcast them to all Australians, This could be done preferably by satellite as this can get to all Australians not just the major cities. Foxtel is having trouble so lets invest and take quality information to all Australians We have a $24 billion surplus and perhaps an investment strategy similar to the old Aussie Bonds would allow Australians to invest in their own future and not rely on the whims of some foreign media mogul.
We have a high level of education and put a fair bit of resource into it. When I was at Monash University there were 10 PhDs, each having had about $100,000 invested in their education by the government. Of the 10, 9 moved straight overseas and have never paid an Australian Tax. Yet most have generated substantial wealth for their employers and foreign taxes.
We teach our kids to look up to our great Sportsmen and women but I believe there is a massive over emphasis on this aspect - reduce it and balance it with a respect for some of our other great Australians. What about our other great achievers Scientists Engineers Doctors Philosophers Artists Police and Soldiers or don't they count?
It is interesting to note how proud we are of our Olympic medal tally from recent games, how we have done well against other larger nations such as the UK, but did you know that Britain has won 11 Nobel prizes in the past 15 years! Who is the smarter nation and which medal generates more wealth and saves more lives?

15. Agriculture
Farm kangaroo a species that is low fat, drought resistant, soft footed and environmentally friendly tastes better than the best cut of steak and does not erode the environment like introduced hoofed stock like sheep do.
Greater assistance for alternate crops and farming methods to increase diversity and new markets such as medicinal herbs
Support rural centre infrastructure

16. The Republic of Australia
Pro-Republic... - its time we grew up and decided we are a mature nation.

17. Do not Log Old Growth Forests
We have very few old growth forests left, they need to be protected. Logging these areas must be stopped, however access should still be allowed for public access and non-invasive mineral exploration. There is an abundance of tree farms and far to much cleared land that can adequately be used to produce lumber, wood chip and paper pulp with out having to use the few remaining forests for these resources.

18. Defense
We are in a new age where the traditional concept of large armies meeting at some central geographic location slogging it out is no longer the likely scenario. Far more likely is diverse hostile acts by small well organized extremists over a variety of geographic locations. To counter this treat, which is extremely illusive, we must train defense and police "flying squads" who being adequately equipped can be deployed and act rapidly. For these to be effective good intelligence is essential, so equal resource should be spent on developing an intelligence network which must involve close co-operation with the intelligence services of our allies.

19. Iraq
I do not agree with the initial reasons for invading Iraq as I believe we were deliberately misled disguising a second agenda. I do believe the ousting of the murderous Sadam Hussien regime was however justifiable in its self and should perhaps continue in other countries where unchecked human tragedy is played out such as the current situation in the Sudan. I believe the lack of interest and the complacency of the west in the last quarter century has led to the current situation need I remind you of Pol Pot, North Korea, the Balkans, Rwanda and East Timor. I am disappointed with the United Nations inability to deal with these Humanitarian disasters including the rebuilding of Iraq where their involvement is essential.
I am also disappointed with the apparent lack of planning regarding the post war reconstruction in Iraq. Although I do believe the current insurgency by militants is a normal temporary reaction similar to the Nazi Werewolves activity following the occupation of Germany after the Second World War. This nasty period will pass. I do not believe in pulling out of Iraq now that we are there, we must finish the job we started.

20. Aged Care
Current policies dealing with Aged Care were established in the 80s when over 65s represented only 6% of the population, this figure is now approaching 25%. These people are the ones who built this country and have paid many years of tax, they deserve a better deal. They can be assisted by allowing generic drugs, subsidizing health costs, discounts on public transport with far more self help and community based home assistance programs. This should however be means tested EXCLUDING the primary place of residence, thier car and take into account any remaining dependents.
