NOT DEAD YET
I may have given the impression that have 'fallen off the edge' of the communication planet.
While yes, am "out of range" of the telstra USB wireless modem, that doesn't mean that I can't drive the 12K to collect the "newspapers" every Saturday .. nor does it mean that i can't take the laptop 1/2K up the hill to check the "internet" every now and then..
I do, actually, try to keep informed of developments, political or otherwise, and some things make me annoyed enough to respond.
So, in reply to a rather peculiarly biassed comment placed on Womby's drivel in the previous post - will just say this.
While yes, some "immigrants" may well be "anti Labor"; "Liberal" and enjoy the benefits of living in Australia while whinging about how "good" it should be - or "bad" because it never gave "benefits" as befitting their presumed previous "traditional" "station" in life..
think on this -
Meself wonders what would happen if i put the "you" back into "Labor"?
One "immigrant" family produced a female who, by education and due diligence, may well be the next "elected" Prime Minister of this Nation.
Who knows, perhaps one day we might end up with an "indiginous" head of state .. wry heh.
While yes, am not going into the details of the 'why's' and wherefores that this should be at this time; it is, and should be.
Politicians and policies come and go. This nation, and the people within it, survive.
Whether you like it or not, Australia has a unique opportunity in the Southeastern Asian area to allow this.
We do, at this point of time, have a clear choice. Between those who care for the welfare of all Australians (however difficult that might be, in the long run) - or those who live in the interest and financial pockets of
"Big Business" (more than likely 'American').
We have, so far in recent history, squandered many unique opportunities to lead by example; to be "first*". Do not squander this one.
