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

More dirty laundry. "Therefore I find it surprising that a federal issue has so much momentum in the West when people in the east in the National Party have in the majority a different view — and to be quite frank, vastly more skin in the game." http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-20/barnaby-joyce-l...

Re: Ebay thread PART TWO - the good, bad, and ridiculous...

^^^ Great price if it's legit Is it just me or does the finish on the back of the neck not look right? Looks like a typical gloss 70s neck finish to me. 70s Fenders are hit and miss, but that looks like it's been played to within an inch of it's life, which would indicate it's a bloody good bass. O...

Re: WTB stingray stealth 4HH

I though the orange emperor got rid of the FTA with Australia? I think he's talked about abolishing various FTAs, but it is still in place. Regardless of the FTA, solid body electric basses are exempt from duty, no matter where they are made. I was merely pointing out that there are two avenues tha...

Re: WTB stingray stealth 4HH

No import duty, as it's both a solid body electric bass and manufactured in the US. But, yes, you'd be up for GST (10% of the total cost including shipping) and maybe $100 max for customs and inspection fees.

Re: WTB stingray stealth 4HH

I think you're going to struggle to find one locally - my understanding is that the stealth Stingray was a limited edition produced to be sold only via EBMM's European distributor. I doubt you'll find one anywhere on the planet for the price of the one on eBay in the US. Looks like eBay is offering ...

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

We weren't planning on watching it either - didn't even know he was going to be on, given we hardly ever watch 60 Minutes. Just happened to be channel surfing after watching Hawke. Typical lightweight stuff Liz Hayes does these days.

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

Bizarre puff piece on Malcolm last night on 60 Minutes. It was all about what a happy couple he and Lucy are. The subtext was "I'm happily married so I don't need to chase other women like Bill Shorten or bonk my staff like Barnaby does"

Turn knobs until it sounds good. Note position of knobs. Adjust from there.

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

Pollies are merely a subset of broader society, no matter which party they're members of - dual citizens and adulterers are everywhere That is true. It would appear Barnaby is/ was in both subsets from the MEDIA reports. Labor has not pursued him about his personal life., even though I understand t...
