First a note on this site’s ownership. The sad plight of Australia means that I am forbidden to publish most of what I want to say here on Australian soil.
This site is owned by Little Bairns LLC Incorporated in the State of Georgia, United States of America. All material on this site is copyrighted and owned by Little Bairns LLC.

Little Bairns LLC is a Citizen of the United States of America, is a natural person and thus and enjoys ALL the rights and privileges of a Citizen of the United States of America. In particular, it enjoys the full free speech protection of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, but its rights are not needfully limited only to this.
Governments in Australia are one of the worst, most unaccountable and untransparent in the so called “free World”. There is no constitutional right to free speech in Australia – there is a vague “implied right to political communication” determined by the High Court, but the Common Citizen must have the wealth to defend this right in the High Court. Governments, in particular local governments, seem to think nothing of using Citizens’ taxes and rates to suppress any public comment they dislike. My own local government has a prohibition on anything it deems to be “offensive”. Naturally, it determines what is “offensive” and this is code for anything that it doesn’t like or tries to hold it to account.
Below is a record of open letters I have sent to politicians and council administrations in Victoria which I can only host in the United States of America owing to our dysfunctional laws in Australia.
