Heh, I'll pay some of those ones :bgrin

Seriously, what is it with Americans loving these TV evangelist wanks? Blind Freddy can see that it's basically a pyramid selling scam that flies in the face of what are supposed to be true Christian values.

Will put this here. No one here gives a stuff about who can marry who.

59% (up 2% from 2 weeks ago) support changing the law to allow same-sex couples to marry and 31% (down 1%) are opposed.

Those most in favour of changing the marriage laws are Labor voters (73%), Greens voters (82%), women (65%) and those aged 18-34 (69%).

Those who would definitely vote in the national survey are more likely to support same-sex marriage (69%).



Essential Research 5 Sep 2017.

Pointless waste of $122m. Use that money for social housing or some FTTH or. . . any amount of uses that are better than helping turdfull delay ME legislation. Cunt!

Turdfull just wanted the issue not on his hands so he spent all that money so he could avoid being seen to make any decisions himself.

Another "do nothing" from do nothing Malcom.

Yeah, saving face is the most important thing for turdfull!

—Energy security is up shits creek, a succession of coal fired generators will close over the next couple decades. Turdfull. . .does nothing.

—Energy prices shooting up. . .turdfull has lunch with energy company CEOs, who tell him they are not interested in coal! Nothing useful came from these two meetings!

—By the time the useless prick became PM it was clear his FTTN was not working at all well, the connection to the “new” network was far from smooth for very many households, FTTN is hampering the businesses and hospitals connected to it, speed slows to a crawl at night etc etc. To save face—the temporary copper network will be completed and fuck the complete waste of $60Bn of tax payers money!

Now the useless prick is toadying up to Trump, we might be at war with North Korea FFS!

turdfull is turd all the way through:

“It got me a bit upset to walk all the way out the back, after I had walked 6000 kilometres to come here to see him,” Mr Pryor said.

Mr Pryor left Perth in protest against the forced closure of Aboriginal communities, but as he journeyed through remote towns he collected the stories of Indigenous Australia, and his message became a call for treaty from those communities.

Frustrated activists delivered a sharp message to the Prime Minister and Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion, who had earlier visited Mr Pryor at the Aboriginal tent embassy.

They expressed concern over cashless welfare cards and Elijah Doughty’s death in Kalgoorlie, among other issues.

Mr Turnbull told the crowd the cashless welfare card was designed to “protect children”, before he was called away.

Mr Pryor said a brief word to the Prime Minister as he left.

“It was a great honour to meet you, but I was really disappointed you didn’t come out the front to talk to me,” Mr Pryor said to the Prime Minister.

“Well I’m sorry you couldn’t come in so I could make you a nice cup of tea,” Mr Turnbull replied.

Out the back of Parliament House, Mr Pryor defended his supporters.

“I was really proud that my aunties and uncles and elders spoke from their heart, because they were hurting too,” he said.

“They have my full support and backing, because they are my people.”

Peter Martin shows the cashless kick a bludger or boong card is not working:

A searing government-commissioned evaluation of the $410 million program could not find "any substantive evidence of the program having significant changes relative to its key policy objectives, including changing people's behaviours".

There was no evidence of changes in spending patterns, no evidence of any overall improvement in financial wellbeing, no evidence of improvement in community wellbeing, including for children, and evidence of the kind of learned helplessness that flows from making people dependent on the decisions of others.


http://www.smh.com.au/comment/the-cashless-welfare-card-may-not-be-quite-the-success-it-seems-20170905-gybm0q.html

“Learned helplessness” aka govt being fucking patronising is an inevitable result. Addicts will find ways to circumvent the card or turn to crime, etc.

Only way is talking to communities about solutions to heavy drinking, drug use, child abuse, domestic violence and implementing mutually agreed policies, allowing a community to be dry—things the fucking Intervention stuffed up. Register of drinkers not allowed to buy alcohol and so on. Help people find jobs, help communities reduce costs by supplementing or replacing diesel generators with renewable energy.

Don’t move populations so fucking Twiggy can mine the land. Treat people as adults etc.

Not for a govt anxious for a win SOMEWHERE I suppose.

Tiernan Brady on the Irish Marriage Equality campaign:

http://www.smh.com.au/comment/same-sex-marriage-the-irish-experience-20170906-gycg58.html

Think it is a wrong description. YES campaigners may have been dignified in campaigning for the YES vote but we know the fucking Church in Ireland campaigned bitterly against a YES vote. The campaign was bitter and divisive.

Now we will have a totally unnecessary and nonbinding campaign for marriage equality. The first NO ad on TV contained several lies and that brought forth a strong reaction from the ME campaigners. Fucking Libs!

Got the NO! pamphlet in the mail just now. Glossy, full color $$$

Read it. Didn’t discuss marriage equality at all! All warnings of dire things that will happen if gays are allowed to marry. Tore it into shreds and threw it in the rubbish.

We need to tax all so–called churches and charities! If they can waste all this money on a BS glossy pamphlet they can damn well pay some tax!

Seems the YES vote will win by a thumping big margin.–REACHTEL says 64% or so. Higher than the polls have showed over the last couple of years.

I imagine this is not what Turdful wanted at all! A narrow margin and lots of abstentions would allow the libs to postpone legislation.

Well, turdfull can have one small positive mark I suppose?

I think the Greens too were hoping for an unsuccessful result, SSM being their main figleaf “progressive” policy.

A large turnout and a large Yes! vote (according to polls and exit polls) must be the last thing turdfull and the RWNJs wanted?

Children raised in same-sex families develop as their peers in families with heterosexual parents do, a group of senior paediatricians and adolescent health experts says.

As a Labor voter I hate the fact they are all pro gay marriage: why don't they bother canvassing their electorates for the answer?

It's sham democracy in action....
