No idea what you two are on about, but there are some topics it's best not to engage in rational debate about.

I mean, if somebody here wanted to have a rational debate here about the Earth being flat, the correct response would be to dismiss them as an idiot. I'm sure the flat-earther would pull the old "see, afraid to engage in civil discourse - look how right I am!" card.

Doesn't mean the Earth is flat.

So after 6 years of LNP government, according to Tim Wilson, Labor is to blame for the anaemic 0.4% growth for the June quarter saying “Australians lived in fear of a Labor government” and that’s why we didn’t spend any money to grow the economy.

Never mind the previous 3 quarters too btw...

What an absolutely moronic thing to say yet people swallow these comment without any reservations.

The economy isn't growing cause cost of living is growing and wages aren't, so people can't afford to go and buy a 55 inch TV like they could 5 years ago

Yeah, I feel if you don’t realise it’s a satire site by now, you’re either beyond help or have a very odd view of the world

Surely has to be one of the best media releases in Australia’s political history :lol:

MEDIA RELEASE: Reason Leader Fiona Patten MP reacts to election of One Nation’s Malcolm Roberts
Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Reason Leader and Member for Northern Metropolitan, Fiona Patten has today given her first comments in relation to the pending return to the Senate of One Nation’s Malcolm Roberts.



“You’re f***ing kidding me right? I thought someone was having a joke with me! Not that climate-change denying, weirdo, conspiracy theorist.


“What a dick.”

It'd be the way forward, for sure, but no. We've just moved house and realised that all of our old furniture was .... deeply crap. I've spent months in furniture and homewares shops (though are still only halfway there).

I'd be happy never stepping foot in a JB HiFi ever again.

TR, I only know one thing for certain... when the revolution comes I'm either going to be the first to perish or I'm going to be the one leading it.

There'll be no in between for this little black pig.
