Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

It's all well and good to have a cheap political slap at Labor State Premiers from the safety of Canberra when there is no one to argue back present (seems to be standard for the current Federal government), but not such a good idea when you are standing right next to them announcing something else....

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Noel Pearson on the scuttling of The Voice proposal. Long but well worth the read. We watched Turnbull fail in his attempt to peddle his lie on Q & A.when questioned by the wonderful Teela Reid last December. A weak and small man who failed the test. https://www.themonthly.com.au/issue/2017/december...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

No wonder there has been no disclosure since Labor lost office. Also no wonder Niki Savva is such a loyal Turnbullite- her partner is a Turnbull staffer. http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/queensland-government/pm-malcolm-turnbull-increases-salary-of-ministerial-staff/news-story/9ed560c1f...

I would extend that to groups such as Hizb ut-Tahrir, connected to language and means of violence, active and allowed in Australia, but who are banned in Indonesia (July 2017), Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. https://www.counterextremism.com/threat/hizb-ut-tahrir http://www.the...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Channel 7 is getting boycotted by me. Any place seeks the views of neo nazis and merely describes them as right wing activists disgusts me. Chilling indeed. I hope the MSM, and local government, eschew all anti-Semitic and anti-Christian reporting and decision-making. A lot more of this sort of thi...

Re: FS: Fodera $3300 -and- 1969 Jazz refin, Sadowsky pickup

I would appreciate it if anyone who knows the seller would contact him and let him know I am interested in one of his Jazzes and I have messaged him. I would like to discuss further.

Re: NBD: Gibby EB-3

Congratulations on a Gibson Bass. I am no expert on these but think the slot heads are 70- 72. They have a reputation for good mudbuckers. The Schaller bridge would be a major step forward in performance. It looks like a roller bridge- they are really good IMO. Small point- the TRC should I have EB3...

Re: Cricket 2017/2018

^ Bancroft needs to do lots of work. If he plays SA without his technique sorted, it won't be pretty.
Hanscomb got dropped because he looked bad as well. Similarly, he will be a mess if his technique isn't sorted.

Seth Lover Humbucker Telecaster Bass in the clip- sounds like it could be it on the recording too. They can be hard to control in a live situation. How do you mean, hard to control? Those wide range bass humbuckers are incredibly powerful- I think something 25K impedance from memory. The positionin...
