  1. All those things may be true, but they got to this situation through the intervention, abuse and cruelty of early “Australians”. Yep it’s complicated, it’s like unscrambling an egg, I don’t know the answers, I don’t think anyone really does, but we can’t ignore that white Australia is responsible for most of the systemic issues. Personally we don’t have to feel guilty but that doesn’t mean we ignore it either. It has taken 250 years to get to this state we can’t undo it in a year or even an electoral cycle. Yep it may cost a bit, or a lot but considering all we took from them, (

    Yep, what a surprise.
  4. OK so looking at the calendar we dont (in NSW) have a public holiday in July/August/ September. That's just too long without a long weekend. So go bang in the middle and we are at Mid August. Gough poured the sand through Vincent Lingiaris hand on the 16th of August. Coincidence?? Seems obvious. First Monday after 16th August. At dawn we raise the flags on the bridge, Paul Kelly sings "From Little Things" ..... and we bring back cracker night....everyone is happy.
  5. For it to be a real "Australia Day" and bring everyone together it needs to be gazetted as a Monday not some date, having a public holiday that's not a long weekend is un-Australian.
  6. You gotta love the irony of a preacher calling out someone for trying to wrangle and indoctrinate newcomers to your way of living.
  7. While young people may not believe in god, their parents and grandparents might and having people like Margaret in their ear and preaching this stuff can and does lead to young people being ostracised from their families and that can have devastating effects. But yeah the church preaches love.

    Coronavirus

    I think I heard this morning that the UK was at 10% vaccination already, although based on my dads experience that will be the first of two shots only. Still I think we tend to underestimate the undertaking that is vaccinating an entire population.
  9. Albo seems like a pretty likeable bloke, don’t think he’s a great politician, possibly cause he is too nice. He’s one of the few politicians I wouldnt mind having a few beers and a chat with but not sure if talk politics though. I heard a very candid interview with him on anc radio a d he was very open and honest about his previous relationship and his new partner. Something I thought was very brave for someone in his position and with his aspirations.
  10. If she was half smart she’d realise how cashed up a lot of gays are and make them her target audience. that could translate to a lot of tax free bucks
  11. Seen a video of her doing the Benny Hinn style laying on of hands. maybe she’s gunning for a sainthood as well with a few miracle cures.
  12. Yeah it’s as if they are saying “you got an award for your tennis, now you are getting an upgrade for being a bigot “
  13. Its nice, but its not $19,000 nice!
  14. And more so for the athletes in sports where the olympics is really their only time to shine on a major stage.

    Still cheaper than shutting down the economy though. I'm not sure if they still do it but they used to be able to de register your cars and cancel your license if you defaulted on other state govt. fines. So some might be in for a shock.

    I was gunna say "because our Premier isn't a dick" but there is probably more to it than that.
  17. Effing goat track. Makes Roubaix look like hotmix.
  18. Any more than budgies back then and you were overthinking it.
  19. I think the "infected flights" came from the US.
  20. Target marketing, most pro triathletes don't earn enough to live in a proper house?

    Obscure attempt at a joke. The W.H.O living up to their name as in WHO? as they seem to be missing in action. *crickets*
  22. Is Actives a transaction fee, or do they charge a "processing fee" for the admin?
