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.

"We’re all really excited about what’s going on here at the Raiders"- Blake Austin
"I’m very happy to have signed this extension and I love playing footy in Canberra"- Jack Wighton
"I’ve been in Canberra for a while now and it’s become a home for me"- Josh Papalii
"“The ultimate goal is to win a premiership and get Canberra back on the pedestal they belong."- Sia Soliola
"The club was eager for me to stay and I was eager to stay as well because I love it here in Canberra."- Josh Hodgson

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

Their homepage currently has this pearler: "AFP Officers Treated For Severe Croc-Related Injuries After Attempting To Raid The NT News"

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.”
"My own opinion is enough for me and I claim the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, anywhere, any place, any time, and anyone who disagrees with this can pick a number, get in line and kiss my ass" Christopher Hitchens

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

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.

We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

You just get your people to do it for you.
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.
Haha nice backpedal

Wot?

You sound like one of the not-eating-dinner-off-a-bunnings-folding-table-every-night elites.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it.

On more than one meal a day, then? You're gonna be first up against the wall when the revolution comes, matey.

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.
