  1. My guess is we'll never move on. Too many people intent on reopening old wounds for their own political purposes. Which reminds me. Is Anthony Mundine dead? He's been surprisingly quiet these past few weeks.
  2. Won't happen. Or rather it shouldn't happen as its named after the bloke who patented the process. But hold your hat, it gets even worse than that Theres a craft brewer in WA called Colonial Brewing Company that has been harassed to change its name. The Link Stop the world, I want to get off.
  3. They might but by the time Cook found his way here, he was about 150 years after the first white man said G'Day to the locals. (circa 1606). BTW nobody is stopping them from heading bush and staying there if they think they were better off. They do have traditional ownership over 40%+ of the country (not including the recognition of Pilberra region they were given last week) which means they can do so if they choose to. Some have up in the Top End and feel that its has beneficial features.
  4. I doubt it. The only way its going to happen is if they get up and do it themselves. The old adage "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and you'll feed him for a lifetime" isn't entirely correct. You can teach him to fish but if he doesn't have any passion or motivation to do it then he'll still starve. From what I've seen, the ones that are doing well are the ones with the passion to keep going and not give up when things arn't handed to them on a plate. Strangely enough, the same comments apply to a lot of white folk too. And yeah this might seem a little harsh but I'm sick and tired of seeing my tax $$$ given to people (both black and white) who take it for granted and make no effort to "make a go of it".
  5. Probably worth 14 articles in various "news" websites stating that based on a survey Scomo has lost the support of the rank and file and his position is under pressure before the next election. Gees this shit is easy to write when you make it up as you go along.🤓
  6. More like the ATM for various groups of people receiving various government handouts for reasons which totally escape me.
  7. Just don't mention the lack of Indigenous awareness in the current school curriculum. You may raise his hackles a bit
  8. This would never happen. I'm a white middle class male. The Government only takes money from me. ☹️
  9. For a multitude of reasons(mostly work related), its been a crap 6 months so I'm planning to travel more and work less. Hopefully WFH more often. Get off some of the medication that I'm on.

    All things NRL

    The "bubble" is the space between the ears of the brainaic that thought up this concept and missed this rather obvious flaw in the concept.

    Floor tiling

    Vinyl floorboards. These are my study but we also laid them down in the Garage to turn it into a rumpus. Glued straight to the concrete slab. Looks just like a wood floor. And considering the amount of office chair movement that happens in here, pretty hard wearing. .
  12. I think theres more to that case than simple unpaid fines.
  13. I wonder what would happen if a NRL/AFL/Rugby player chose not to partake in the symbolic taking a knee protest before the game?

    Coronavirus

    I think they do but its starting to become obvious that either: 1. 14 days in quarantine isn't enough 2. These people are contracting the virus while in quarantine Who (not WHO) knows what the solution is for this one?
  15. One would like to assume this is true 100% of the time. Unfortunately, theres been too much evidence to suggest that some places being "non-white" is a suspicious act in itself.
  16. Not acceptable for whom? The PC thugs of society who demand that she must accept the new norm of "inclusiveness"? Seems to me that a lot of these people preaching about inclusiveness and bagging those that don't toe the PC line, seem to conveniently forget that inclusiveness means including everybody...even if they don't think like you, look like you, talk like you, or agree with you. Till we get rid of this "I'm right and you're wrong" attitude that infests our species, we will never have true inclusiveness. Margaret Court may not be right but she's got plenty of company from both sides sitting on that high horse with her.
  17. Well that surprises me. Who would have thought that somebody who believed that rules regarding gathering didn't apply to him, wouldn't have the app on his phone? Didn't see that one coming🙄 Damn wheres the sarcasm emoji?😁
  18. Surely they'll keep Flying High and the Naked Gun movies Although I'm a bit surprised the PC fun police havn't banned some James bond movies
  19. Looks like a statue of John Wayne.

    Coronavirus

    Yeah but the borders still arn't opening till 10 days after Queensland opens theirs.😁
  21. No. Never. They can always blur out the confederate flag like they do with cigeratte advertising in old sporting clips
  22. I think its possible to separate the works from the individual. Why should I be deprived of (for example) the musical genius of somebody like Michael Jackson just because he (allegedly) abused children. If I did stop listening, the only person who would be affected would be me. (I have most of his back catalog on CD so no money would go to his estate). Nobody is perfect and if you dig deep enough you'll eventually find something to tarnish their reputation. And where do you stop ? If Leonardo De Vinci was a slave trader, would the Mona Lisa be any less of a painting.
  23. I wonder if Glenrowen will pull down any statues of Ned Kelly...convicted murderer
  24. ABC article Hmm. Having read this version I'll ponder aloud again seems to me that somebody is going out of their way to be a trouble maker
