Australian Prime Minister says NOOOOOO to muslims !

AMERICAN PATRIOTS: PLEASE COPY THIS AND FORWARD THIS MESSAGE VIA EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW:
The world must be informed.

Australia says NO - Second Time she has done this !
AMAZING You must read it !!!!

She's done it again..
She sure isn't backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen..
A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. I wish some leaders would step up in Canada & USA .


Australian Prime Minister does it again!!
This woman should be appointed Queen of the World.. Truer words have never been spoken.

It took a lot of courage for this woman to speak, what she had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least she was willing to take a stand on her and Australia 's beliefs.
The whole world needs a leader like this!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law, were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..


Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:

IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.'

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA , We will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know

JUST SAY “NO!” TO ISLAMOFASCISM !

Do you have the approx position? South Australian drivers going to west Australia often report seeing Min MIn lights on the Nullabor.

And also in the Tilley's Swamp region of the Coorong in SA, so I hear.

Although I used to drive through there at least fortnightly for years, I cannot recall seeing anything unusual from the road.

Nowadays people have a camera in their mobile phone so always a good idea to have it on "camera mode" when driving.

True. Although in the days of my described (non)experiences mobile phone cameras were still a thing of the future. I did take some superb scenic photography through that region, but at night that's not an attractive option.

Anyway, of all the thousands of photos taken of purported UFOs anywhere, I have yet to see even a single one that is not so hopelessly grainy as to be ambiguous.

Apparently you need specialist cameras such as those used by the airforce/military designed to take pictures of high altitude aircraft in flight.
There are issues of light and distance and movement that make pixel clarity of using a SLR camera problematic. It's worse for a digital camera or video camera.
I guess you can excuse the average Joe for taking god-awful images of a blob in the sky. You only get suspeicious if the image looks crystal clear like the aliens are posing for the camera.

All that is well understood. For instance I have been a spectator at air shows and taken reams of shots of planes going through their routines. At the time each shot seems well enough composed, but on reviewing them later it's underwhelming how many of them end up looking like a distant little bug against a vast sky. And that's even with use of telephoto etc. One of the major factors is anticipation. If you have had time to get used to the ways planes cross the field of view and at what speed and distance, then you've got at least some show of suiting the exposure to the event.

With 'UFO's opportunity for anticipation is almost always absent.

But nevertheless, I still get hung up on the point that out of the hundreds of thousands of 'UFO' snaps that must have been taken over several decades, surely an 'average Joe' somewhere at sometime would have fluked it at least once. It just doesn't seem possible that it has never ever happened.

Yet all we seem to have are images mostly taken in good faith of enigmatic looking fuzz-balls that are not really informative.

And that's before even factoring in an inevitable percentage of deliberate hoaxes.
