Topic Censored Words
Posted 15 Oct 2016 06:31

Banning any word has draconian overtones. Though to digress I'm always baffled how one word with a specific meaning is offensive but another with exactly the same meaning is not. All words are just sounds - telling somebody to go away sexually is just the same as ''fuck off'' yet the former might get a laugh but the latter cause offense.

Topic Standing for the National Anthem
Posted 14 Oct 2016 16:10

we have just had an indigenous athlete come out and say that other athletes shouldnt stand for the Australian anthem becuase its not theirs.
Happily other athletes have ignored and even derided that belief.
If you say your Australian then stand for the Anthem same with America if your not going to support your country then get the hell out and go be where you want to be.
Just don't put down what others believe in if you don't have the same conviction

You have no choice about where you are born thus you can stay where you like without being forced to pay homage to any damn thing. Go and bully a few more indigenous people. This logic means we all end up back in Africa.

Early Morning Sickness.

I crawl out of bed at 6:45.
Gritty eyed only half alive.
I breathe in deep my own B.O.,
A nut case raves on the radio.
The door slams to with a crashing roar,
I'm off to bastard work once more.

I see no logic in the accident of birth giving rise to loyalty to some area or other - merely practical reasons - that makes sense but ''my country right or wrong'' if anything in my mind is unethical.

Topic Should British children be banned from visiting Mosques?
Posted 01 Oct 2016 08:31

It used to be the Jehovahs Witnesses that left our assembly.

They are not asking for a choice, they already have a choice, they want to outright ban it and they are targeting one particular religion, which is already under scrutiny, which is why I have a problem with it.

I agree with Buz and LM that it should be all or none and likewise for this protest on facebook. If they were saying banned from all religious places of worship I wouldn't be so offended by it, but they are not, they are targeting Muslims specifically.

Now my kid's school hasn't taken them to any but I would have no problem if they did. They do learn about other religions including our own and enjoy doing so, I see no harm in it, I encourage it. My children are not racist or prejudice in any way and I believe that to be because of how I have raised them and also because of their learning and understanding of different cultures and religions.

I think you missed my point. (The ambiguities within language perhaps?) We had no choice about our assembly and it's good that they do

Topic Should British children be banned from visiting Mosques?
Posted 30 Sep 2016 08:47

When I was a kid we had something every morning at school called Assembly. This was a semi religious/administration meeting. We would sing hymns and listen to any messages about the school's running. The only people allowed to be excused were those whose religion was either Jewish or Roman Catholic everyone else had to attend. In other words the religion imposed on the state by the sex life of Henry the 8th was forced down our throats. Allowing parents/kids to attend some similar event but given a choice sounds fair enough to me.

Topic Has the UK replaced the US as the political laughingstock of the world?
Posted 20 Jul 2016 21:48

Well the U.K is busy compounding the joke by a retro step to go back to the good old days of the cold war (which I felt was never going to heat up as proved by the Cuban missile crisis in 1962) and the U.S.'s current loony says he would press the button (that is if he can find it). So to summarize I think we're about equal. Though you know we're not to be trusted - we lied to you guys about our nuclear capability by pretending we owned H bombs by letting off a huge atom bomb and pretending it was an H bomb so that we could share the responsibility of Armageddon together - isn't that cosy?

If you are using the word 'should' instead of will then my sane side says Clinton my insane side says it would be a laugh it you play the trump card as we're all doomed. :) But if you mean the word in the deserving sense then I would say neither of these 2 particular charlatans. Someone like Noam Chomsky springs to mind in the 'should' sense now that the only sane candidate is burned out.

Topic Gun Violence and Mental Health
Posted 14 Jul 2016 07:12

Have you guys any idea of the horrific joke the U.S. gun attitude is to the rest of the world? We only let our cops have guns in extreme circumstances never mind the public being able to buy semi-automatic weapons. It's so over the top. As a kid I used to watch gangster movies with guys firing off machine guns it was so outrageous it wasn't really real but of course despite the romantic names like Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde etc they were real. I mean you've even let your part time soldiers kill your kids when the kids were protesting. Such an incident in the U.K. would have toppled the government. There are all sorts of things I think are positive about the U.S but the gun thing- it's insane for Christ's sake grow up.

Topic Britain to have another female Prime Minister
Posted 12 Jul 2016 05:48

There are many, many, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany ways to criticize Thatcher. From marginalizing unions, initiating the new kind of anti-european british nationalism that has today led to Brexit and insane levels of centralization of power. But are you really going with "Britain needs more coal"? An industry that was outdated and unsafe even in the middle of the last century? The way Thatcher handled its downfall was pretty horrific, stocking up on riot gear and sacrificing the workers for the sake of a more liberal labour market, but the downfall of coal was inevitable. There is no alternative in the preservation of coal mining in a G5 economy...

I mean, except when you're Germany and turning off nuclear power plants to restart coal power plants for environmental reasons...

I used the coal example as an illustration of her methods the other points are debatable in themselves. Her main reason for closing the pits wasn't economical it was a power game. I could say there is no place on the whole planet for the internal combustion engine just burning up all the oil rather than making more useful products and simultaneously help preserve the environment by some other alternative but that wasn't a pulpit I wanted to ascend. I'm just pointing out that we don't want another Thatcher and am always surprised at the respect she evokes in other countries. It must be the Falklands thing that they all remember as the misguided think having a tough military stance is to be admired.

Topic Britain to have another female Prime Minister
Posted 08 Jul 2016 05:51

She, whichever one gets the nod, will have a tough time meeting the standards set by 'old ironpants'. Maggie Thatcher was a once in a lifetime personality. i wish you Brits luck. Either way you have us beat, hands down!

Thank god she was a once in a lifetime thingy. We can do without her small business mind that ruined our industries such as coal which we now purchase from Russia at astronomical prices. I have no objection to female politicians but consider them to be equal charlatans along with the male ones. In case you don't get my meaning I mean all politicians of either gender are charlatans.
