Good luck, sir. While we do not always agree, I have been impressed with your desire to engage with people no matter their cause or ideology. I intend to watch your campaign with great interest.

Drugs, such as cocaine, are illegal for a reason. They're dangerous and should have no place on our streets. People may say that they should have the choice to decide what goes in their body, but the first responsibility of the government is the safety of their citizens and I feel that the President is neglecting his duty in this area if he believes this is a good idea.

By keeping drugs illegal you make them more dangerous and achieve precisely the opposite of your intention.

In a way, I feel sorry for Turnbull.

You've lost me there.  Turnbull has proven to be the most spineless conservative hack- even worse this year than I would have expected, and my expectations were NOT good. Tongue
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump agrees to take Muslim refugees.... on: April 22, 2017, 06:51:10 pm
Trump sent Pence to Australia and it looks like the refugee deal is back on.

Now the refugees on Manus Island are causing issues with the Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton suggesting that the Iranian and Afghani refugees have been raping young boys.

http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-04-20/concern-for-5yo-may-have-led-to-manus-shooting-dutton-says/8457962

Raping young boys is common place in Afghanistan, but it looks as though the Papuan Police and Army have been less welcoming of the sexual preferences of some of the older islamic men.

Either way, Australia needs to send these people off our shores. They have not passed our tests for immigration, so now we will send them to the USA.

See if you guys can deal with them. Good luck.

Turnbull's dog whistling is successfully appealing to the PHON racist crowd, I see.

Maybe it's enough to save his job after all - at least until the election.

By making these drugs legal, all it will do is to make it easier for addicts to access them easier, thereby running up the over dose rate tremendously.

You have obviously never had a loved one who OD'd on drugs.

Your arguments for legalizing these deadly drugs are laughable. 

You have completely and conveniently overlooked the human cost and the human tragedy in this ill conceived and short sighted proposal.

Shame on you.   

Shame indeed, as your support for social engineering has caused you to make wild assumptions and present your views in an arrogant and abrasive manner.

It is not the job of the government to legislate religious beliefs.

The human cost of the failed war on drugs has been immense.  If I were you, I would spend less time defending the inhumane prison industrial complex and a bit more time trying to embrace compassion and tolerance instead of punitive judgment.

Just what this nation needs, another generation of brain dead pot heads and crack addicted zombies.

The continued illegal status of drugs makes them ripe for adulteration.  The wave of fatal overdoses is largely caused by unscrupulous and unknowing people "cutting" drugs with other products.  If we stop rewarding drug cartels and move towards a more permissive approach, we can reduce the risks by preventing the distribution of dangerous, adulterated drugs.

If we are really concerned with tackling the issues presented by substance use, prohibition is not an option.

This move towards a more humane and rational approach to substance users is most welcome, and I have no doubt that communitarians across Atlasia are pleased with this initiative from the President.

Paris is the best deal the fossil fuel loving Trump administration could realistically hope for.  We're past the point of pretending that climate change is debatable.  It's already happening and the question is whether we mitigate and adapt or just lie for political reasons.

The ABC I watch routinely runs scare stories about African youth, playing the same few clips over and over in stories where the footage is completely irrelevant.  In fact, in their neverending effort to not be defunded by the Coalition, they are always trying to present a false "fairness" which elevates blatant lies by the Coalition to the same level of merit as actual facts.  Sadly the ABC is complicit in the dumbing down of our political atmosphere.  Still, they are alone among the basic networks in providing any reasonable television coverage.

apparently the Turnbull government is going to let young people raid their superannuation to buy a home, because they won't ever get to retire anyway.
20  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion 2.0 on: April 05, 2017, 08:48:09 pm
I thought it interesting that following the result in WA, the Nationals opted to pick a new leader who not only prefers to not coalesce with the Liberals, still wants mining companies to pay taxes, and even goes so far as to call herself a feminist.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rahm Emanuel wants to require acceptance letters for high school graduation on: April 05, 2017, 06:42:59 pm
Just short of downright evil.

And, while this might be an unpopular viewpoint, I believe it pushes students in the wrong direction.  The truth is that you basically already need a college degree in order to get employment with decent conditions.  We should be making it easier for people to succeed without that "requirement," rather than taking the dastardly step of enshrining it.

If this is an unpopular viewpoint, then that fact itself is an enormous indictment of the American chattering classes' attitude towards education.

This policy in particular conjures an image in my mind of Rahm and his advisors wondering, "What is it that is stopping these kids from getting into college?  Do they just not want to be productive team players in our economy?"
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of this immigration reform proposal on: April 05, 2017, 05:54:17 pm

23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rahm Emanuel wants to require acceptance letters for high school graduation on: April 05, 2017, 05:26:34 pm
Bad policy.  Placing further constraints on children who struggle to make it through the education system is not really conducive to improving life outcomes.  And, while this might be an unpopular viewpoint, I believe it pushes students in the wrong direction.  The truth is that you basically already need a college degree in order to get employment with decent conditions.  We should be making it easier for people to succeed without that "requirement," rather than taking the dastardly step of enshrining it.

Yeah having cheap surplus food sucks! Damn those poor people and their "hunger".

Wow, I never thought of it that way before!  I guess we'd better produce even more surpluses so that poor people can continue to go hungry.
