Gay and Aboriginal agendas

Why is the Right obsessed with those agendas? Because they are shoved down everyone's throats, day and night. Do you think that anyone has anything else to talk about because it's getting monotonous?

Simple. They want respect. Respect they are not given.
If people weren't so hotsy-totsy and bigotic, then we wouldn't be having this post now.

When certain groups demand equal respect for their rights, they're just demanding what is their's by right.

When certain groups demand preferential treatment and continue to insist they're still oppressed long after their rights are recognized, they have a larger agenda.

Alot of Australian aboriginals do not have the same rights as whites here though, they are denied the right to access alcohol and pornography in many Northern Territory communities which is a massive violation of individual autonomy everyone calling themselves a 'libertarian' should be strongly against.

Well, if it adds much to the topic, I'm gay myself. I do think gays should be able to marry but on a personal level it doesn't affect me since I've always been single anyway, so gays being able to marry is really only a situation for the non pathetic gay people :lol:

As for the aborigines. I think our government rolls out the red carpet for them in a pathetic attempt to "apologize" for crap that no-one in this generation even did :stare: Ever filled out a form, or done a test and one of the questions said "Are you Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islander?"...in high school I saw that on every major yearly exam session and always wondered what relevance it had to anything. Now I know - it's so the government can give them a "handicap" and make life easier for them. Oh sure, if doesn't matter if an Aboriginal doesn't know what 2+2 is, he should still be an accountant just in case the employer's great grandfather slaughtered his grandmother's uncle over a stolen sheep :dummy: They're not the only ones who have the government holding their hands through life either, Australia's desperate attempt to look racially balanced has inverted and now it's almost a disadvantage to be white in this country :shifty: Our government is like a pair of parents who are babysitting s bunch of other people's kids, and like so - they are always nicer to the other kids than they are to their own :hmm:

The nanny state is a full-blown pain in the arse for sure. But nothing gets them more worked up than the tedious economy. If they hear the words culture and science, they wonder what the fuck is going on. It's government by morons for morons. Whatever political party governs, it just means more shit.

Facts don't go away because you ignore them. But how can you when it is 24 hours of the same shit? Floods, bushfires, blowflies, whining cockies, drunk blackfellas and drag queens with the occasional story about how much the Japanese love our iron ore and koalas. I have changed my mind. It is not special interests that I have a problem with, it's the whole fucking country.

All of this push and pull equal rights crap from new majorities and new minorities can easily be solved by saying "fuck you whiny ass bitches and your special pedestals, we're getting rid of of the old laws we need to constantly re-write and put in a new one saying 'Hey asshole, see all these people? Yeah they're all equal, don't fuck with their rights just because one guy's gay and the other one smells like he rolled around in 12 week old cheese'".

Mostly has to do with high wages, Australias minimum wage is $16, over double what it is in many US states.

Other than expensive mortgages, Australians in big cities have only slightly less purchasing power than Americans in big cities.

I saw a news story on TV that stated that even though the average Australian earns about 37% more than the average US citizen - the prices we pay for all kinds of things can vary by statics that are a lot greater. I think fuel and technology (such as computers, phones and gaming consoles) ranked among the most criminally overpriced - at double what a typical American pays for the exact same thing. It's not balanced if we earn 37% more than Americans, but have to pay up to 50% more for everything than they do :hmm:

"the prices we pay for all kinds of things can vary by statics that are a lot greater."

Indeed, look at the cost of healthcare and tertiary education in the US to see how much they vary. Healthcare is an essential unlike gaming consoles.

We need to take into account many factors here, the US is the biggest manufacturing country on earth, it has a far denser population, and less of the population lives in major cities (and in those major cities its expensive, New York is nearly as expensive as Sydney).

Some things in Australia are definitely a ripoff, software is one of the big ones. But as far as the essentials go its not that expensive, its certainly better to be poor in Australia than it is to be poor in the US.

I would agree on that last past, poor people in the US have it pretty bad, based on what I've seen :O I think population size probably contributes to that (and the healthcare issue) as well. In one way a big population is a blessing, since more things get mass-produced and sold and therefor things generally are cheaper. But on the other hand - it's impossible for any government to hand out fundings to such a massive amount of people in need of healthcare and housing :judge:

But I think the real sting for the average middle class person who maybe only needs to see a doctor once a year is the fact that common purchases that are essential, like fuel, electricity, water, groceries etc are disproportionately expensive relative to what they earn and what you get. Three bucks for a bottle of coke is a crime :boo:

"But on the other hand - it's impossible for any government to hand out fundings to such a massive amount of people in need of healthcare and housing"

Not at all, a big population also means more taxpayers, if the US stopped spending billions on corporate welfare and defense it could easily afford universal healthcare.

"Three bucks for a bottle of coke is a crime"

I can't see how, $3 will get you nearly 2ltrs of sugarwater which should be more than enough for a week or so. It costs $0.0016 (on average) for a litre of water.

Some groceries, like meat, bread, eggs, milk, etc... are more expensive partly because we don't have ridiculous agricultural subsidies that pay millionaire farmers to plant excess grain like they do in America.

I saw an activist group on Facebook posting memes themed like "X person in X country explains why things there are so much better in X country. X person: Things are so much better here because we do X - the opposite of what America does" which were getting considerably more grossly malinformed. They did one on Australia regarding minimum wage, stating that a fastfood worker here can easily afford a car and a house because they get paid twice what an American fast food worker does.

I worked in fastfood when I was a teen and I don't ever remember being that well off. :facepalm:

I will admit that I can't entirely blame the cost of living for people not being able to afford much. I wish I could, but sadly people aren't as hard-done-by as they let on. Most people I know who have complained about not being able to afford the bills will be using their iPhone 5 as they are doing it :facepalm: Australians are also pretty notorious for blowing their money on crap we don't need. I feel like an exception to the norm for not having any handheld device that could access the internet, and not going out and living it up every Saturday night (not that I could even if I wanted to - I always have to work Saturday nights :doh:). I think if people didn't indulge on luxury items so much they could afford to save up for a car or house...BUT at the same time - it is disgusting that some people still have to spend 15-20 years paying off their first house :disbelief:

I had worked there periodically when I was 18 too, the wage went up by like 1 dollar per age. I'm 22, if I went back there there's no way in hell I'd still be able to afford a house, a car and pay all my bills and magically have surplus money to spend. It doesn't matter how much you make if the cost of living still goes up with the wage. Germany tried hyper inflation after world war 2. It printed off and gave it's citizens retarded amounts of money so they could afford to live. The shops went "Oh sweet everyone has all this money we can jack our prices up like crazy" so you'd get eggs and bread costing billions of dollars. The money became useless to the point of people preferring to use it to insulate their houses instead.

Adult minimum wage doesn't start until 20.

Every job in fast food is casual, and given the hours and wages there is no way anyone in the world could survive in a fast food job. A full time (38hr) minimum wage job though will give you about $1200 a fortnight which is more than enough to rent a cheap place, afford a used car and pay your bills.

Unless they actually start shooting, yeah. But mostly it has to do with placement of casinos on the postage-sized joke of a "reservation" some tribes are stuck with.

As far as I'm concerned: we took their land. If they want to build all the casinos they want on what little we've left them with, go ahead. Is it a problem for the surrounding communities? Tough luck. That's the breaks.

Some things are meant to be taken seriously like inequality and injustice, but, no matter where you come from, to lose your sense of humour over them is tragic. Humanity needs to stay in the light and not dwell in the dark, for it must be remembered that humanity is the only species which knows how to laugh, and laughter is the best medicine.
