  1. From what I understand (the Australians here can correct me if I'm wrong), the Australian Constitution does not have the same Bill of Rights, guarantees of individual freedom and equal protection of the laws as the US Constitution does. Therefore that makes it much more difficult if not impossible to challenge the gay marriage ban in the Supreme Court as was done in the US. If in the US we had to rely on our legislators to approve of gay marriage, we wouldn't have it either!
  2. It's sad. But what is really pathetic, is in the US this would not even be a major story. People get stabbed or shot on a daily basis, and it's only reported in the fine print in the back of the Metro section of the paper. In the US. sadly we've become used to this kind of violence.
  3. I'm looking forward to it. I hope it all goes well and there aren't too many problems with the water and Zika etc. I love the Summer Olympics because I used to run track and field. I also love the gymnastics and swimming. And of course I hope Serena Williams can win another gold in tennis and a gold in doubles with Venus!
  4. The Trump supporters in this thread are scary!! I hope he doesn't win. I'm getting scared he will, if even Madonna fans are supporting him!
  5. So what? He made a mistake and misspoke, just like I said Madonna is the Queen of politics. His speech was powerful. He brought the house down.
  6. But his speech was so powerful! It was hardly pointless. Maybe his wife isn't fluent in English.
  7. I corrected it. I suppose you never made a mistake in a post. It must be nice to be so perfect. I couldn't decide whether to put Hillary or Madonna first and that led to the mistake.
  8. Whether you like Hillary or hate her, whether you agree with her or not, you have to agree it was a historic moment for the country. The first woman nominated by a major party in the United States. I shed a tear! I think Hillary is an amazing politician, but some people I guess want her to be a saint. She's not. I get disagreeing with her politics, but I don't see why some people think she's a horrible person. I don't get the hate directed at her. I find some Bernie supporters really childish and idiotic. But I thought it was great how he nominated her, it showed real class. Not like Lucifer in the Flesh Ted Cruz at the Republican convention. I said it before and I will say it again. Madonna is the Queen of Music, Hillary is the Queen of Politics, and Serena Williams is the Queen of Sports!
  9. Michelle is amazing, but I don't see her running for political office. I think she will continue her campaigns to help women and children, and to encourage healthy eating and exercise in a more non-partisan way. Politics is a dirty business, I don't think she wants any part of actually running for office, and who can blame her!
  10. I think it has more to do with the email scandal. There is some law that makes it illegal to mishandle, leak or be careless with classified information. Some people have been prosecuted for not protecting classified information. The FBI did an investigation of her handling of classified information on her server when she was Secretary of State and found while she was careless, it didn't rise to the level of a crime that should be prosecuted. I think the "lock her up" stuff is mostly in reference to that.
  11. Well, at least both of the conventions are more interesting and entertaining that they have been in the past where everyone was unified and they all agreed.
  12. And didn't every speaker at the Republican convention talk about Hillary Clinton and how bad she is and how she should be locked up. What's the difference?
  13. Lady Gaga is not going to be at the actual convention in Philadelphia. She is performing at a free concert for delegates that they are having across the river in Camden, New Jersey. Lenny Kravitz is also going to perform at the concert.
  14. I don't see why he should be praised just for running for President. Isn't he doing it to benefit himself to get more attention? What is the good of speaking his mind, if a lot of it is ignorant. Sometimes you need to listen to people who have studied the issues and know more than you do. He wants to be seen as fearless but he sticks with a lot of Republican orthodoxy. If he is so fearless, why doesn't he tell the Republicans they should support marriage equality when he supported in the past and went to gay marriages. Why doesn't he support a woman's right to choose, when he supported that in the past, but now he went along with the standard pro-life Republican opinion? What is brave about attacking Mexican immigrants and Muslims, two of the most powerless groups in our society?
  15. I see the parallels between Hillary and Madonna. But at the same time, I do feel we need to hold Hillary to a higher standard than Madonna, because Hillary is ruining for the most powerful position in the world and is dealing with major economic and international issues of terrorism, war and peace etc. whereas Madonna is a pop star and an entertainer. If she messes up, it mostly just affects herself and her record sales. If Hillary messes up, it affects a lot more people. I totally support Hillary, but I don't think she has always been truthful and ethical and she needs to do a better job going forward. To point that out, doesn't mean you are equating her with Trump, who I agree is offensive on every level. I don't think you can compare some humorous silly things Madonna did on Instagram to things involving life and death like Benghazi or things involving national security like the email scandal.
