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

it can grow tiresome I guess it can. I do find myself answering either a) disputes of what I have said (mostly good), or b) what appear to be thinly veiled barbs, with no substance as far as I can tell. I try to make my comments from the media - I also think the world stage gives a lot of context t...

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

in terms of human rights and Australian law, they are entitled to opinion and little else. Exactly. But my point is why will that work in AU when it certainly hasn't worked anywhere else? Sure, muslim culture impacts "Australian" culture... but what IS Australian culture? ... Didn't the Brits and o...

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

bombing abortion clinics Didn't that only happen in the US? One or more? Terrible thing regardless. The only bombing here that comes to mind is the anti-Christian activist in ACT bombing the AU Christian Lobby. lynching gay people I think you've got the wrong religion there - except they seem to pu...

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

Chinese and Russian...clumsy dig...? Nope. Purely national. Russian intervention in middle east, Ossetia, Chechynya, Afghanistan, etc etc. Chinese persecution of Uyghurs, at least that we know of. Both China and Russia are kind of not western, and kind of are. But both are known to attack Muslim ho...

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

I don't see where Australian Law accepts polygamy No argument at law (yet) - but laws can come from cultural change - 'Revisionist' Constitutional judges argue as such. why would we try and force I hear you. But it can't be the sole reason we have those kind of refugees. we make their homelands unl...

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

numbers don't matter to you Not true - as I tried to show, it is more complex than some arbitrary majority percentage. We already have tacit 'recognition' of polygamy here - at 2.5% believe they don't assimilate Show me a Western country where they have, with >2.5% impose our systems on them Such a...

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

Some very good stats and background, Vee! Thanks. None of the 'common ancestries' demand law changes their way, nor vote their own culture pollies in to do so*, so we do have a wonderful assimilated historic population here. (*Of course Cabramatta will vote a Chinese descent pollie in, but they actu...

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

Going a bit broader, apparently Lauren Southern is in AU. She points out issues with uncontrolled immigration and loss of sovereignty - bit hard to swallow, perhaps - but that is what is happening right now elsewhere in the world! Its great if everyone assimilates and respects AU laws, as per AU his...

Re: I can not adjust the bridge pickup height in my squier.

If you have a specialist rubber supplier, you can get self-adhesive foam neoprene strips. Ebay has stuff like https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/12Pcs-25x25cm-KTV-Sound-absorbing-Acoustic-Foam-Sound-Noise-Insulation-Sponge/322701340681?hash=item4b227fb009%3Am%3AmJPI8wUcLquou8N8Vcw_XJA&var=511751608513&_sop...

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

A classic 'border incident' - which can only stir things up. Hidden false flag op by ??? to look like RU? Actual RU operatives? We may never know. Absolute tragedy for the victims. Commentators after the fact need better diplomatic skills than was demonstrated.

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

With this and other approaches, offences in Victoria have dropped Its wonderful to hear of this progress! It was part of my original comments - saying, is the gang crime side of it in fact true? ie still true. I'm also heartened to hear you report the police have increased community engagement with...

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

use race as a political weapon Is if a pollie goes on mentioning it - in which case I agree with you. But if it is in context, as I mentioned, then I can't see it being racial in the same way, and is indeed necessary for sake of truth; and community engagement should go hand-in-hand. Poor reflectio...

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

the race card whenever possible This one I don't quite know enough about in this instance. If a pollie goes on mentioning his scape-goat group, then he is playing that particular card whether it be Bikies or Eskimoes. But if he is mentioning it only in context of (say) problem gangs that do exist, ...
