Protect Australian Children


In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims' rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release.

Unlike Megan's Law in the United States, communities have no knowledge as to who they are or where they are. A public register is a right and a national duty that is long overdue.

Civet cats — solitary wild animals — are being seized from their natural habitat, shoved into barren cages, all so some people can enjoy a cup of Kopi Luwak, the world's most expensive coffee.

The legend surrounding the production and sale of Kopi Luwak, or civet coffee, is huge. Originally civets would have naturally selected, digested and excreted coffee cherries, which made — in some circles — a...
