    Anyone on this, because on the face of it both sides have a general agreeable point.
    But as always the devil is in the detail and the strange little situations it throws up.

    Now I'm only talking about private business here, as all govt departments and employees of those departments should be under the one rule.

    But

    As a business owner it does irk me that even though the govt did nothing to help me set up or run the joint, they can stand over the top of you and say "you must do this or that". So by empowering one part of the population you limit the freedom of another.

    Interesting.


    (And for the record I've never knocked back a dollar from anyone so it doesn't bother me so much but the principal does).
    I'm going to guess that you have never been to Mississippi ? My former roomie at Uni said it is the one place in the world he's too scared to visit. And he's a 6'7" African American you would not want to mess with and he reckons if seen alone on the street he's lynched within mins.

    Suffice to say, Mississippi is a special case when it comes to discrimination.

    Oh don't worry, my buddy who used to live in Georgia has regaled me many tales.

    I just think this is a new example of someone thinking this is an easy fix, yet not taking time to weigh up all of the consequences, because there is a flip side to everything.

    I also don't have a problem with bigots outing themselves. I'd rather them be public and open to the ridicule they deserve rather than being continually protected by legislation they actually don't want anyway.

    The problem is there seems to be a lot of the public and pollies who think that spending billions of dollars to get between 2 places a hell of a lot slower than you already can is somehow a good idea

    Also, first time I heard the term 'future fund' muttered I legit thought we were funding some sort of time travel machine.

    Man was I ****ing let down big time by these asshole politicians.

    Did you see the footage of him punching and elbowing his wife on stage during his speech today?

    He literally cannot control his impulse to attack and kill people.

    Interest rates go up when the elites want to convert money into an interest bearing alternative and rates go down when the elites wish to sell interest bearing alternatives back to the RBA.

    The Government and RBA simply do as they are told to feather their nests after they leave public life.

    From and economic point of view interest rates are pretty much meaningless as they tell us very little about the real economy.

    No matter which party was in government the interest rate was always going to go down given how bleak the forecasts have been for many many years now. [Based on the mentality of those in charge more so than due to economic necessity]

    sounds like a moronic waleed/pickering attitude. Just replace Jew with Christian and apparently your no longer a bigot, lol

    Not really, they are pretty ****ed up as well. If being an advocate for evidence based learning / teaching makes me moronic then so be it.
