If China says the U.S. citizens having guns is a bad idea then that's good enough reason to me to keep them. Using China as a blueprint for human rights is the stupidest thing you've done to date.

Skeptics: Organised Hate Group on Topix?

Posted in the Australia Forum

The so-called "skeptics" are a misinformation campaign run by angry male homosexuals masquerading as atheists whose management has a significant interest in pedophilia, its promotion and protection.

They have replaced the old "quackbuster" operation. http://www.quackpotwatch.org/WisconsinWar/who ...

They are PAID to troll the internet blogs, disrupt threads, abuse posters, denigrate decent people, and generally cause havock. http://www.bolenreport.com/skeptics/Skeptics2 ...

Nascent Nationalism under the Southern Cross
By Barrie Colthurst

Tuesday, 16 October 2012

Like so many Western nations Australia is locked into a fairly binary choice when it comes to politics. There are two main options, perhaps best described as ‘bad’ and ‘worse’ depending on your particular ideological slant. Now that’s a bit cynical, but right now Australia faces a choice between two leaders who, according to the polls, are incredibly unpopular.

It is constitutional. The problem with the senate is the 17th amendment, a progressive doing at the turn of the twentieth century along with the progressive income tax. The senators were once sent by state legislators to represent the states in the federal government, hence the reason each state has two senators. The senate had a way of keeping the federal government from becoming too powerful. Now, the people vote for senators which caused them to become political party hacks that pander for the public vote and not really looking out for their state's interests. They actually do damage to state budgets.

What is a Royal Commission?

You can choose not to agree with guns and think no one should own them, that is your choice. You can also choose not to believe in God, that also is your choice. But the first two things you unarmed idiots do when an armed criminal breaks into your house is call someone with a gun like the police, and then pray they get there in time!

Very much agree!
And, it is my considered opinion, for what that might be worth, that everyone should be made to pay the full price for their lack of preparation which they could have been making long before any particular situation arrived.
Of course, if one is dirt poor, and cannot afford certain things, then I consider them to be exempt from that, as long as their predicament lasts.
