Police have allegedly seized a large quantity of drugs with an estimated street value of more than $1 million.
It is alleged the Queensland Police Service located 12.5 kilograms of cannabis, 687 grams of methylamphetamine (Ice), 747 LSD tablets, 28 grams of cocaine, 2,180 MDMA pills and $459,240 in cash following the search of a house in Townsville yesterday.
The discovery follows an investigation by members of the Townsville Drug Squad which resulted in the executed search warrants on a number of residences at Currajong.
Even though your toddlers nappy is so full he's dragging it a metre behind his bum, still not shit.
Even though you totally lost the one thing your trying to teach your kids to keep... Control, while yelling at them because they just wouldn't shut up. Still not shit.
Even though they have had magi noodles for dinner twice this week? Still not shit.
Even though you forgot his school lunch, you didn't make her do her home work, you picked the babies nose and wiped the snot on his own top, you didn't force them to go to sleep before 9 last night and now they are both totally fucked, they both have head lice and dreadlocks and they kind of look like feral deros.. But they are happy happy feral deros, so you are DEFINITELY not a shit mum.
Because that 1 thing that makes you feel like a shit mum.. Is parental guilt.
And shit mums don't have parental guilt.
So embrace your guilt, feel grateful that you have it, forgive yourself and go on being an amazing mum, who fucks up daily yet loves those little feral deros with every corner of your soul and let the guilt go.
Reports today reveal the Turnbull Government has gone to extreme lengths to cover up the devastating impact its inaction on climate change is having on the Great Barrier Reef – removing any mention of Australia from a UN report.
But we're not going to let them get away with it. Together we can ensure that Malcolm Turnbull's ploy backfires. Will you help get the word out?
'MOVE TO AUSTRALIA' As Donald Trump leads the US election 254 to 218, Google searches for 'move to Australia' is rapidly increasing in the last few hours. Most inquiries are reportedly coming from Colorado, Kentucky, Tennessee, Washington and Virginia.
Like most people, the photo of little Alan Kurdi being carried out of the water shook me to my core. We often read about the tragic plight of refugees but I think that picture exposed us to the reality in such a raw way that the truth became inescapable.
'Oh Canada' simply aims to tell a story. It’s not preaching anything in particular, it’s simply my attempt to make sense out of senselessness. If it also reminds people of what happened to Alan and his family then I think that would be good - after what they went through they don’t deserve to be forgotten. If the song reminds people how the picture of that lifeless little boy made them feel then that would be even better because that proves we’re all very similar people who just happen to live under different circumstances. If the song inspires anyone to do something on behalf of refugees - to speak up for their rights and to push back against those who seek to inflame our fears and prejudices - then I think that would be best of all.
The song is accompanied by a powerful animated video created by award winning director Natasha Pincus and animation director Nicholas Kallincos.
Caritas and World Vision Australia support programs in Syria and neighbouring countries that create spaces where children can express their feelings of the past and hopes for the future. The drawings in the 'Oh Canada' video are by children in Caritas programs in Damascus, Syria and in World Vision programs in Beirut, Lebanon. Both the global Caritas network and World Vision have helped millions of people affected by the crisis in the Middle East.
Today I was a very good village boy. I got my suit and tie just right. I was early and I listened well. When I accepted our Order of Australia Medal I kept my back straight and when we sang the anthem I got it perfect. Well done to our little village. If we weren't so rad they wouldn't have given us a shiny thing, right? Love you Con. Hate the silly gastro for keeping you away. xsammy
Today, 30 years ago, Australia farewelled Constable Angela Rose Taylor who lost her life in the most horrific circumstances when a car, packed with explosives detonated.
With 70% burns to her body, Angela fought incredibly hard surviving for 24 days after the explosion.
The events of that day changed policing forever. Not only was Angela the first female officer murdered in the line of duty in Australia, the Russell Street bombing marked the nation’s first act of terrorism.
Protecting our staff and the community remains our first duty. Today Angela’s legacy lives on through everything we do. Rest in Peace Angela.
If someone handed you 1 billion dollars in cash and told you that you needed to take it everywhere you went, shops, town, holidays for the next 20 years with no bodyguards or insurance you would be pretty fucking anxious. Well your baby is worth more to you then 1 billion dollars and you have to do all of that and more with it... Yet your supposed to be relaxed?
Congratulations on your anxiety, it's proof that you understand the worth of your baby. 💗
Sam, It makes me feel important when I think of being your older sister. I call you my little brother to remind people that I am older, like that matters at all, but you are not little at all. You are big hearted, big spirited and big minded. I know you put Love Your Sister above all else that you do, but watching you swap your pink hat for the stetson last night made me so damn proud.
You deserve to have a great birthday today. So with you being 38 today and me turning 39 last month, I have an idea... race you to 40? That sounds fair, I do like to win. Do we have a race? Happy birthday little bro. XX Connie

Shout out to all the council locations around Australia which are allowing edible verge gardens. We are in the process of compiling a resource that contains the council area and links to their associated verge rules and regulations as a permanent resource and advocacy tool over on the UFS website. If you live in a council area that has capitulated to some extent to allow edible verge gardens, as Brisbane City did last week, then it would be great if you could let us know by leaving the details in the comments below. As you all know eight years ago we just did it because we understood and felt a need to demonstrate the immense potential and benefit to society as a whole. Times are finally changing, oh….. and if you haven't LIKED our page, don't forget to do that also!!!!!!#isitallowed #foodintegratedsuburbs #nofoodmiles #environmental #social #sustainable #URBANFOODSTREET #peoplestreetfood

Numerous reports have been received at our Communications Centre regarding a possible flare sighting over Adelaide.
Investigations by PolAir have determined the flare is in fact the red nose of a certain reindeer, pulling a certain sled, driven by a certain jolly man, with a certain white beard and wearing a certain red suit. We're certain he's on his way!
Merry Christmas to all our followers and especially those younger ones who have waited all year for tomorrow.
WITH RESPECT SIR, I RECKON YOU NEED TO GROW A SET.
My father used to have an old saying - never let your ambitions get mixed up with your capabilities.
I'd reckon that fits you, Prime Minister. It seems to me - and mind you, I'm right down the end of the totem pole, just an ordinary sheila-citizen - that you decided that being Prime Minister was something you had to include on your bucket list to add to the glory of a glittering career.
Perhaps, however - while you were busy feathering your own nest - there were a few important lessons you failed to grasp about what it really meant to be Australian.
You see. this nation has been built by a truly brave and courageous people. We have not shirked the task that has been placed in front of us - not in pioneering this nation, not in fighting to defend this nation, not in stepping up to love and honour this nation. We have always turned up – and we have always tried our hearts out to do the right thing by our nation and everything it stands for.
So let me suggest something else for you, Prime Minister. Life is hard. In fact, life sucks most of the time., You go to bed beaten and you go to bed buggered - and then you have to get up and do it all over again.
But here's the thing: Mother Theresa once said that life is life - so you better grab it with both hands. And so we do. We have a go, we get breaks and bruises, but we get up time after time because we don't like the feel of the canvas.
What happened in Parliament yesterday was truly pathetic. It was a shambles filled with overpaid and up-themselves precious politicians who decided to take an early mark and scoot off home for a long weekend - and you didn't have a bloody clue where they were. In fact the way it all looked yesterday you looked so useless you couldn’t even teach a pig to be dirty.
So never mind all the fancy yellow ties and the presidential seals for the Turnbull Party, never mind all the flash white BMW’s and the posing and the posturing in front of your pretty big pink Gingerbread House.
What I want to know about is when you are actually going to do one single sensible thing to try and save our nation and drag our people out of this terrible mess?
What I want to know is when you are going to stand up and tell all your politicians that have taken dirty Chinese bribe money that they need to step down immediately and find themselves a new job, because some of us still believe that politics requires ethics and decency. Clearly, your blue mob - not to mention the other red mob - do not even know how to spell the word.
There are millions of good and decent Australians who refuse to sit around and watch our wonderful country handed over to the Chinese on a platter - or any other nation for that matter. This land is our land, and our farms and our water resources and our ports and our critical infrastructure belong to us.
You see, we the people built them and we the people paid for them – and I’m referring to the entire Ord Irrigation Scheme that was built by Australian Taxpayers money here – and it’s the very same scheme that you and your weasely little mongrel mate Minister Canavan want to hand over lock stock and barrel to the Chinese.
Well, Prime Minister, while you are sitting in the Zen Position sipping green tea spiced with tigers balls the rest of us are out there working. And you know something? We intend to stand up and fight for our country, because that’s who we are – and this beloved country is all we have.
You see, the rest of us reckon she’s worth fighting for – and if you don’t understand that, then you need to stay in the Zen Position sipping green tea spiced with tigers balls in your big pink Gingerbread house and leave the rest of alone.

(PS and yes, it’s the breeding season on the farm and yes, we’ve all been going flat out since four am and yes I have genuine horse manure on my boots as I write this - but let me assure you, it's a damned site better than the disgraceful brand of bullshit that you and your spineless party hacks get paid for on a daily basis. Have a nice day)
