CAIRNS SLOGAN READS "WHERE THE RAINFOREST MEETS THE REEF", not "WHERE THE WANKERS MEET THE REEF". SEND THE DE-NUTTERS TO PORT DOUGLAS, THERE'S WORK TO BE DONE!

John "Cueball" MacKenzie and the white-shoe hillbilly brigade spun up into full election mode today, as the nutters in Port get unglued about a project ORIGINALLY BEGUN UNDER THEIR OWN DOUGLAS COUNCIL!




ONE PICTURE BEFORE - ONE PICTURE AFTER
WHICH IS WHICH?
The hysteria being formented by a long-ago discussed and approved beachfront revegetation project has seen the bullshit running heavy for these three wasteful hours.  Callers ginned up by Cueball lodged threats, they screamed, they cried, they called for someone's head.  All while losing their own.  You'd think council was proposing another Entertainment Precinct!


FACT 1:  The area prior to the start of work looked like a nuclear test site with palms.
FACT 2:  The project to FIX this area was first started by Port Douglas residents and Port Douglas council, prior to amalgamation.  Residents in Port INSISTED the project be carried out after amalgamation.  Here ya' go, ratbags!  Have a cool glass of fluoride and enjoy your palms!
FACT 3:  After removal of some old palms inland, the area looks in photos almost identical to before - because the shoreline palms were untouched.
FACT 4:  The entire Cairns Regional Council voted "aye" for the project, after years of consultation with the Port community.  Get Margie in and ask her why she voted "aye"!
FACT 5:  The callers and other clowns who've allowed themselves to be pawns in the MacKenzie 4CA "Bullshit Issue of the Day" are showing themselves to be wankers of the highest order.
FACT 6:  JOHN MACKENZIE IS THE BIGGEST RATBAG IN TOWN!


MacKenzie couldn't buy a real fact with a bagful of $$$'s.  We even emailed the council report on the subject to him and 4CA yesterday, and they did bugger-all to set the record straight, or even suggest an alternative viewpoint might exist.


Bob Manning's response?  FREE WI-FI FOR THE CBD!
Marge Cochrane?  IS THERE ROOM FOR ANOTHER HOCKEY FIELD?
Ian Thomas?  WHEN ARE WE HAVING ANOTHER ZUMBA CONTEST?  THOSE YOUNG ZUMBA GIRLS GET REALLY WORKED UP WHEN I SHAKE MY BUTT!


WHEN ARE ANY OF YOU GOING TO START TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUES?


FRIDAY NIGHT UPDATE:  DIVISION SEVEN COUNCIL CANDIDATE STEVE GRASSO, JUST BACK FROM HIS FIRST COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP, HAS WADED INTO THE DISCUSSION WITH ANOTHER PITHY FACEBOOK SURVEY.  YOU'RE A CREDIT TO YOUR GEN X, STEVE!

I swear Cueball was foaming at the mouth when I heard his on air rankings yesterday. He has seriously lost the plot and 4CA need to fire him before he destroys this great place we live in.

I just read the CRC Report. Unbelievable, Hillbilly, how the cunning and deceitful have stirred this up. The Douglas Shire Council requested it, the CRC all voted for it. Now it is being done, a few slimy individuals are saying there was "no consultation" blah blah blah. Here we go again!

wait up its beach front land who gives them the right to cut down trees or do you have shares in that site that is for development, you are a total tool blogger, and just spout out what ever ya feel, and anonymous like me, but fuck me for what reason did they do that, besides giving the developer a better seaveiw, reeks of coronyisim to me.

RobPyne said...

Mr. Hillbilly,
I fully understand people are upset, but with any revegetation project, you really need to wait a couple years before passing judgement.
Every such project I have seen has (in due season) delivered considerable improvements!
Warm Regards,
Cr. Rob Pyne.

Miss Information came up with this inspired media farse.
Miss Informtion makes no sence to informed intellegent folk and if you look closely you can see the bullshit dripping off her as she flicks her hair and makes her way back to her cave.

Anonymous again proves the fact that as a venting, spittle flying mouth breather writing anonymous comments, the first thing to go is the ability to spell and punctuate and for that matter to make any intelligent contribution to the topic in their comments.

Jim McMahon Edge Hill said...

Has no one at the Cairns Post read the CRC documentation on this subject? One of the kind bloggers has posted links to these documents, which show only that some elements of the public have been whipped up into a frenzy by nothing. Ten years of consultation with those in Port not lazy enough to spend all their time in a coma, and a shock jock who takes any opportunity to bag the current mayor and council to get his developer cronies back into office. This is a tempest in a teapot, fair dinkum.

Mr. Ramsey said...

One of the furious whingers from Port Douglas blamed it all on "greenies" from down South and Overseas. He then had a rant about "Paki's" and Indians. I haven't heard someone use the derogatory and racist term "Paki" in public since the 1970's. Neither the duplicitous deputy mayor nor McKenzie made any effort to intervene or cut this raving lunatic off. What a disgrace!

Bus. Op. said...

Wonder if Steve Grasso has bothered to read the CRC documentation? Seems like he just sucks up his "information" from rugnut and the compost as well and doesn't bother researching anything.

Buzz said...

I'm a bit worried about that "Miss Conduct" character -

Neil said...

It's very clear on the CRC website for all to see...Revegetation Project , Four Mile Beach. It is part of the Port Douglas Master Plan developed by the old Douglas Shire Council and now being implemented by the CRC. The website even explains why some of the coconut palms are being felled.
Not, as Liz has suggested that they may be "too old", but rather because palms prevent native trees from growing around them.

Why oh why don't the so called "journalists" at The Cairns Post do their research before they publish a "story"???

Neil,

Michael Weitzmann, whether real or "nom de plume", has burst suddenly on the scene - blogging, twitting, facebooking. A look at his facebook shows him to be at best an LNP shill and at worst and LNP hired gun. Like a dengue mosquito, I've drained all the standing water and sprayed some strong insecticide, and he's gone.

Running a blog is such fun. Now that campaign season is here, we get all sorts of "backchannel" communications, some including great looking "evidence". Apparently they think some suckers are running this blog and will print any old crap, even crap that will get someone frog-marched to Lotus Glen. With an IT specialist on board, we're keeping all this junk and related identification for use.

Later.

We run on OUR timetable, not yours.

Boyd Scotty Scott said...

So, Blogger,are you stating here that you are storing info on folks who don`t agree with your lefty views for future use? Seems to me you are,thus,trying to intimidate anyone who stands up to you.Well,go ahead and save stuff on me, you foul-mouthed pratt. You and your cronies are weak as piss and I have nothing to fear from any of you.Go hard,you troglodytes of the ether. You can say and do anything you like but cross the line with me and arse up you`ll go, and that`s a promise.Keep to running your pinko/greeny verbiage, you`re nothing but envious scraps and dags,hanging off the rear end of successful society, and you`re running out of time.Soon, you won`t have anywhere to hide (I know a few IT experts, too.) You and the sad dedicated supporters you have....what a joke!

you are such a bullshitter and why do you go anonymous and if you think that you have the abilty to to make out that you can defame people than put your idenity up.

Michael Weitzmann whinged (in the ComPost):

"Alison Alloway, clearly you don't listen to what is being said and neither do the people you constantly defend, which is why they are all about to be thrown out of office! We all know what "revegetation" is, the issue is that this area was aleady "vegetated" with plants the community likes and did not require revegetation. Also, clearly many people were not consulted or they would not be in an uproar now. Weasel words from weaselly people indeed. Start LISTENING!"

Hey Weitzmann -

There was YEARS of consultation! I love how you ratbags sit at home hunched over the radio, whinging and honking to poor old Cueball, instead of getting out an actually TAKING A LOOK at what's going on. Council did YEARS of consultation on this issue. Why didn't you and your ratbag mates get out there an offer up your opinion THEN? Because you're fucking lunatics and not truly interested in your community. Those that are interested get to the consultations and offer up their opinions, and get to see their ideas implemented. I've done it myself. . . it works a treat.

The pictures tell the story. You're just one of a small pathetic minority who are being manipulated by a smarter radio guy to get the big money ratbags put back in charge. They'll give you bugger all, close the books, and then see what kind of consultation you'll get. Bugger all.

Weitzmann and Scott are typical of the people Mackenzie has by the short and curlys, swinging them this way and that, playing on their easily exciteable emotions and firing them up like a pair of gullible little kiddies. Neither have the intelligence to research the facts behind an issue. It is incidents like these, where clearly the media have sent out wrong information and stroked up some of the intellectually vulnerable, that continue to raise the level of rancour and polarisation within our community. It is disturbing to say the least. I wish the media would be more responsible.

Alison Alloway said...

Thanks for supporting me, "Steve Grassos Mum". I wonder if this misleading information about the revegetation of the Four Mile Beach foreshore would have occurred had there been no amalgamation and the media were able to contact the Douglas Shire Council and talk to the people who actually did the public consultation direct? Just a thought.

Anonymous said...

Hey Scotty, piss off back to Mssion Beach and join your redneck mates and cut down some more foreshore native vegetation to improve your ocean views but spare the exotic coconut palms! What a wanker and please learn to punctuate!

Bob R. said...

This isn't the first time the media have done this. Stirred up the community, alleging "no consultation" with a fanfare of hysteria, yet research has found that yes there was plenty of prior public consultation. We are being pulled around and around in circles by an inept media machine instead of forging ahead and gettng on with things.

"Playing on their easily exciteable emotions -" athena wrote above.
Recent research in the United States confirms that "Nasty people in the media can prime the brain for aggression" (see www.sciencedaily.com). I believe that this would happen only with susceptible people in our communities, however I believe the advent of the radio and print "shock jock" is steadily destroying rational debate in this country. I note that Pauline Hanson has been offerred a radio "shock jocks" position recently. She is typical of the type now spewing out hate and vitriole,thus steadily increasing the levels of aggression and polarisation in our society. It is, in my professional opinion, only a matter of time, before someone in public life gets attacked or killed.

You're not wrong with your deductions Liz. The media are scatching steadily away at the social veneer of our society, revealing the ugly club wielding neanderthal in all his limited intellect and brutish behaviour. I agree, it is only a matter of time before the neanderthals run amok and kill somebody. The sad truth is, the neanderthals won't have the insight to understand what has happened to them.

There must be an Ozzie version for this song:
He was born in Oklahoma,
His wife's name's Betty Lou Thelma Liz
And he's not responsible for what he's doing
Cause his mother made him what he is.

And it's up against the wall Redneck Mother,
Mother, who has raised her son so well.
He's thirty-four and drinking in a honky tonk.
Just kicking hippies asses and raising hell.

Sure does like his Falstaff beer,
Likes to chase it down with that Wild Turkey liquor;
Drives a fifty-seven GMC pickup truck;
He's got a gun rack; "Goat ropers need love, too" sticker

And it's up against the wall Redneck Mother,
Mother, who has raised her son so well.
He's thirty-four and drinking in a honky tonk.
Just kicking hippies asses and raising hell.

Well,
M is for the mudflaps you give me for my pickup truck
O is for the Oil I put on my hair
T is for T-bird
H is for Haggard
E is for eggs, and
R is for REDNECK.

Up against the wall Redneck Mother,
Mother, who has raised her son so well.
He's thirty-four and drinking in a honky tonk.
Kicking hippies asses and raising hell.

Dusk descends upon a gloomy Cairns day, rain is gently falling. I venture out onto the balcony, a pair of Imperial Torresian pigeons flitter past,relieving an angry sky with an airy dance of pure white in their search for a roost. High above them, the dark shapes of fruit bats flutter erratically as they begin the excited trek to their noctural banquets. Some things are just now stirring and some settling down... the endless cycle of days and nights turning once again. The late lunch was good and the combination of champagne and bordeaux, along with good food and better company, has induced a mood of benign contentment. No need for dinner now. I come inside and, sitting at my desk as the twilight deepens, I check the threads on the Hillbilly blog and smile. Ah!, but none of these have left comments on my facebook page and there are no new posts on cairns.com.au. I look up, the sky has darkened even further and dusk has become night. I yet again have a flash of realisation, as if for the first time - yet I have always know it, that Cairns is beautiful in all her moods. The wheel of life is turning ever on, yet another day soon to dawn in paradise.....

athena said...

Just heard about the rednecked anti-gay ad that Katters Party are running in the State Elections. What were you saying Neil about the social veneer of society being "scratched away"?? Huh? The ad is deliberately designed to fire up the neanderthals and incite homophobia. I can't help but feel appalled whenever I see this type of electioneering.

Example of civilised correspondance.

EMAIL FROM MAYOR VAL SCHIER (in response to earlier emails):-

Thanks for the email Michael. The removal of the trees has angered many people. Whilst it’s not possible to turn back the clock, Cr Leu is moving a motion at next Wednesday’s council meeting – which I will support – in relation to the next step in remediating the site and ensuring that there is an agreed policy about coconut management.

Regards

Val

Cr Val Schier
Mayor
Cairns Regional Council

REPLY:-

Dear Mayor Schier,

I thank you for your response and acknowledgment of the distress this action has caused. I understand from radio reports today that Deputy Mayor Margaret Cochrane, along with Cr. Leu, will be moving in favour of mature coconut palms being reinstated at this site in addition to other flora as part of the remediation of this site & I sincerely hope that, with your support and that of council as a whole, this shall proceed. I look forward to learning of the final resolution of council on this matter and hope that any coconut management plan will offer a greater amount of protection for these palms in future, as they are an important part of our cultural, environmental and symbolic heritage.

Kind regards,

Michael Weitzmann
