    The Greens? They want to ban hate speech & make it a criminal offence. Must be getting advice from Putin. Who will determine what is hate speech? DiNatale? That is on the slippery road to communism when you lose free freedom of speech, whether it is good or bad. My father didn't spend 3 years in a POW camp to allow people like this to control the country.

    I cannot stand Turnbull. He is a traitor; he betrayed the party that made him PM. If a bus ran over him, I would give the driver a medal. Turnbull had put feelers about joining the Labor party. That should should have set off warning bells when he THEN went to the Liberals........ but the dopes accepted him.

    You completely missed the point about Whitlam, Keating, Turnbull. The Labor party claims it is there for the 'workers, the battlers'. Turnbull was only there for Turnbull.
    Whitlam was living in Wetherill Park in 1971, a scarcely populated outer Sydney suburb at that time. When he won the election, the house was sold & W moved to the Eastern suburbs.


    Not a member of ANY political party, never have been, other than the 'save this country party'.
    no.. but just the kettle calling the pot black me thinks.


    BOTH major parties are NOT there to represent normal Australians, that changed 30 odd years ago.

    It is me me culture.. any Lib minister knows he will get an overseas or highly paid posting somewhere
    PAID BY US. Nelson.. Hill, Vanstone. All got cushy highly paid 'jobs' from their liberal mates. And
    The Labor mob..? are no better Both major parties appoint people to positions as 'rewards'

    plus both also don't care about the S44 of the Australian Constitution. In fact politicians, have this
    habit of thinking they are above the law. Even Murphy thought so (but he died before we found out)


    ps... you miss the point about Turnbull, the Liberals appointed him as the sort who SHOULD lead, inspire and glorify
    what the Liberal Party was, they saw him as the self fulfilling prophet . He did a BETTER Keating than Keating...

    Even at $2000 per week they would have to put in some long hours. 40 hour week would be $50 per hour, perhaps not. As far as I am concerned no amount of money would induce me to do their job. Out in all kinds of weather, the abuse, standing in one spot for long hours. I always give them a wave as I go through in appreciation of the job they do.

    Most people mature with age, the exceptions seems to be politicians in the house when they all seem to turn into preschoolers!

    Politicians are overpaid for what they do.

    Perhaps, but he still donated his salary to charity every year. Good on him.

    I voted for him last time because he had some uncommon sense, but now I'm in such a hurry to see them gone I already voted.......

    Our previous PM did the same thing with his salary but then he also did a Trump and changed the tax laws so his blind trust suddenly had to pay less tax which I'm sure put much more coin in his pocket than the salary he got for all the years to come...

    I had a look at the policies, I get nothing of note, nothing is really going to affect me no matter who wins,, Except some of the Greens nonsense policies like getting out of the US/Aus alliance because of Trump, increase foreign aid and recognising Palestine, which I will not do...

    I know this is off -topic but... am curious about that comment
    given that the Greeks wrote about Palestine back in 5BC
    ( If I recall my high school history correctly)



    ps... I don't know enough about the present day dispute in that part of
    the world and its history/cause to have an opinion. But I am curious..

    Geoff, whilst you're posting unmitigated bullshit again, might I remind you about how this country has been managed over the last 50 years. Not once in my life, {nearly 60 years} has a coalition government left the economy in better shape then the one they inherited, NOT ONCE. Also, they are responsible for the 5 highest spending governments, the 4 highest taxing , the biggest structural deficits, the highest interest rates, lowest wages growth and a number of other failures. They have NEVER managed an economy in economic downturn, yet we still see record debt. I suppose you're also happy with the 180 odd million recently wasted on the Christmas Island stunt, NOT ONE person has been transferred there despite the liars in government, the destruction of the NBN, ts a massive failure thanks to your mates and will cost a small fortune to fix. Here's a brief history of the coalitions incompetence whilst running Australia. And before you sprout "communist this, communist that", I don't vote, Sure, all parties in this country have ****ed up one way or another but the current morons in government are the worst in my life time... Howard was also a disaster, he blew somewhere around 350 of mining boom money on handouts and policies that directly benefited the wealthy and ended up with another deficit, he sold off the last of Telstra to end up with a paltry surplus, he also sold off more than 70 income generating assets, he was also Australia's highest taxing government, and holds the two highest spending governments as well, he also left a massive structural deficit. I've studied politics most of my life, there are grubs all over politics, always has been, always will be. Here's how Australia's economy has fared over the last 40 odd years, the biggest lie in Australian politics is that the coalition are better economic managers, history tells a completely different story....

    1983 - Malcolm Fraser & the LNP hand over to Labor an economy ranked 20th in the world.
    1996 - Paul Keating & Labor hand over to LNP an economy ranked 6th in the world.
    2007 - John Howard & the LNP hand back an economy that had slipped back to the 10rh place in the World.
    2013 - Julia Gillard & Labor hand over to the LNP THE BEST PERFORMING economy in the world... placed 1st.
    2015 - Malcolm Turnbull & the LNP preside over an economy that had slipped back to 10th in the World, last in the OECD and deteriorating. Morrison now has it somewhere around 19th place

    Your hysterical rants are a laugh a minute....

    Thats their policy, but Phillistia as a region or people known as Phillistines occupied part of Canaan which is the old Israeli kingdom and Judah... But no 'palestinian' today can really tie themselves back to being Canaanites, as the current crop of palestinians are descended from arab migrants..

    But, I do not wish to argue this.. Stick to our own policy, I just mentioned it as a Greens policy along with talk of breaking up the AU/US alliance which is a stupid policy IMO..

    Mickey Juice,

    You have obviously been on the juice again. Heard of 17% interest rates? The highest ever in this country. We can thank the Hawke Labor govt for that & the master treasure Paul Keating of 'Banana republic' & 'The recession we had to have' fame. Rudd/Gillard's BER & pink bats, 4 deaths. Millions wasted because no checks on how taxpayers money was being spent. Cheques sent to dead people. Yeah, great money managers. Wayne Swan, the worlds ' greatest' treasurer who never delivered the promised surplus & left a HUGE debt. The NBN plan written on the back of postcard, STARTED by Labor & would have been too costly & wasteful to abandon by the incoming Abbott govt.

    If you studied politics, you didn't learn much. If you want employees [ ie, people that have jobs ], you have to have an employer FIRST. Labor attacks big business, too stupid to realise that big businesses create jobs & creates work [ employment ] for small businesses. Coalition are not my 'mates', never said they were. I won't be voting for them. The unemployment rate is lower now than under Labor, or maybe you think high unemployment is good.... When Whitlam got in, unemployment & inflation soared. You left that bit out.....You are full of bull shit.

    Forgot to mention the 000s of people in the late 80s/early 90s during the high interest rate period of Hawke/Keating who couldn't afford their mortgage repayments & lost their homes. Yeah, Labor, great managers of the economy....

    Rather pay 17% on $50,000 house when house prices were 3-4x the average wage compared to 5% on the median house price in Melbourne of $800,000 10x plus the average wage bud.

    Back in the days where women left work to look after kids and you could survive on a single bread winner and still pays the bills, now both have degrees and they're still struggling to keep their head above water both working.

    People need to come to the realisation that it's got to the point that people just won't own houses, cost of living expenses are stopping people from starting new families causing declining birth rates which they're trying to bandaid by increasing immigration, competition for the much less jobs on offer is higher than ever with everyone expected to have $50K university degrees to wash dishes at the pub and less than 50% of our work force has the stability and entitlements of full time work thanks to casualisation of our work force to erode employment conditions.

    Your 17% interest rate back when you didn't have to drive 700KM a week just driving to and from work, paying $2500/year in tolls for the privilege, 1987 sounds like a dream mate compared to 2019.

    I don't like Bill Shorten either and won't be voting for the ALP but stop the 'woe is me' bullshit about how hard life was in the 1980s because high interest rates because you had it easy.
