What happened to the praise of Hanson's integrity that was flooding these pages just a couple of weeks back? The integrity of a snake.



I have never seen a flood of support for her here. She has had a couple of good thoughts in her life but then gone troppo on them. Example, going from examining the usage of 457 visas to 'stop the migration'.

I personally am terrified at the way our country is going. Our freedoms being eroded daily.

We are being legislated daily into how we raise our children. How we live our lives.

The amount of public surveillance. Every phone call we make. Every key stroke on our computers. We have police tapping houses and cars. Cameras that record our movements on the road.

I know that 'if we aren't doing anything wrong then we have nothing to fear' will be trotted out. I am sure that those living in North Korea have nothing to fear if they are doing nothing their government disapproves of. I am pretty sure though they wish they could do things their govt might disapprove of.

I am really not sure that the politics we suffer are not distraction to prevent us seeing what is really happening in our country


The reason you may not have seen it is due to the way in which it has been written. Usually with something along the lines of " for fear of" or " funny how it's ok for labor" or "the left seem to think" or some line about "at least Pauline has integrity" .The last one is my personal favourite. Integrity 😂 GOLD!

Making personal the issues of Western Society (be they economic, social, security, trust, reliability...) is probably not going to be in our favour smile ... just saying.

I meant this (when we personalise stuff):
Either
“You ARE a silly person.”
Or
“That WAS a silly thing to do.”
Disowning the personalisation of ideas used in communication smile . That’s all.

----------
It's not directed at anyone, just to keep in mind, if you want smile .

Doing a lot of edits here, possible also tired grin .

Interesting how Scott Morrison has suddenly changed his tune in regard to wages. Stating on FB and other places that we now need wage growth to boost the economy.

Maybe he should look closer at what the coalition can do in the at space rather than just another thought bubble.

methinks that the WA election is a wake up call, again I state the whole one nation issue is just a publicity front from the coalition to hide the fact that they were hammered due a lot to national issues.
