  1. . Repulsive. What an obscene narcissistic heartless person.
  2. I know ! I hope Americian people against universal healthcare wake up and see that universal healthcare is something that every country should have. I find it mind boggling that so many Americians seem " scared" of it. Healthcare should be available to everyone and not just the wealthy. No body should be denied health care or be in debt for needing medical treatment. It is heartless and repulsive to see people not getting the basic human right of health care.
  3. Saw an analysis last night about the Sanders/Biden vote and apparently young people ( 45 years and under ) overwhelmingly voted for Sanders but older people overwhelmingly went for Biden. Also that older people easily come out to vote while younger voters did not. So, it seems that another opportunity lost IF people want Medicare and are alarmed at the rate of college debt and the tax perks that ultra wealthy and huge corporations, banks get. But if young people don't bother voting, this will never change. Just sad that the swing to the far right - not just in the USA but everywhere - does not seem to be getting through to the younger generation ( worldwide) who just are too apathetic about it, despite it being their future. As mentioned before, would have Biden in a heart beat over Trump anyday of the week but it does sadden me that although people say they want change and not for the mega rich, corporations, big pharma etc to rule things, they can't even bother supporting someone in Sanders that uses this as their platform.
  4. Agree 100 %. So sick of the whole " women don't support each other" when calling out the likes of Margaret Thatcher. Being strong and iron-clad is abhorrent and cruel when policies are so damaging to so many. Seen it on this forum too - the whole " women should support other women" I will never support ANYONE who I find hard, damaging and dangerous. Man or woman. Also agree with how insane it is that people now are called "the loony left" for wanting things such as health care and a fair tax system that does not favour the ultra wealthy. As you said, everyone on the so called left is made to feel they have to be conservative. I watch with horror as people that have benefited from such things as medicare, great working conditions, penalty rates etc now being made to feel that these things are wrong and some even getting swayed by corporations, the right wing media and business groups.
  5. Exactly. They are NOT the same. Bernie Sanders is someone that has everything you mentioned as an incredible alternative that will make lives easier. Medicare, college debt, environment - all things he is campaigning heavily for. It astounds people in other countries that the biggest country in the world in the USA does NOT have universal health care and it is so detrimental to poorer people - same with college debt. Yet, so many young people did not show up to vote. What on Earth is wrong with them ? As you mentioned, Biden would not be my choice at all if I was American BUT he is a much better choice than Trump by a million miles. Would vote for him over Trump every day of the week. Trump's rampant supporters and the wealthy will ALWAYS come out and vote. If people want change, they have to vote. I am glad that Australia has compulsory voting because it does bring people out to vote that otherwise might just say " can't be bothered" Shame it is not in the USA as it does make a difference.
  6. If young people in America are not going to bother to join in and vote for someone who holds ideas and values that would help them and so much of the American public, well they are pathetic. So tired of the apathy and downright ignorance and laziness of so many people. Voting for who is going to make decisions that affect your life is crucial and yet, so many just shrug, not bother and instead let the rampant right win out. As for Biden, well just a typical status quo politician who won't change much. Of course, he is a much better choice than the revolting Trump though.
  7. Go Bernie. Someone who has passion and wants true change. Also, I think he would scare Trump. He won't take a back step and could easily expose Trump's stupidity, lies and hypocrisy. A true complete alternative - in ideology and policies. With the shocking trend to the far Right going on in the world, if Bernie gets in - it would be a welcome and wonderful move in the opposite direction.
  8. Wage stagnation is dreadful. Multi million dollar corporations and conservative governments are doing everything in their power to stop wage increases despite the ever growing cost of living. Helped by the right wing media. We have the exact same problem in Australia.
  9. Agree with you both Kim and Karbatal. It is terrifying how right wing, racist,, sexist, homophobic, climate change deniers etc are now dominating so much of the media. As for giving racist, misogynist, anti science etc people the right to say anything and applaud their rights to discriminate in the name of free speech - no matter how incorrect and hateful it is - it is incredibly dangerous and frightening.
  10. This has devastated Australia. Yet another case of a violent estranged husband brutally stalking and killing his estranged frightened wife and children. In this case, this monster ambushed his wife in her car while she was doing the school drop off, poured petrol all over her and their three young children and set them on fire. Stopped others from trying to save them and then killed himself with a knife when he was sure they were burning. There is a special place in Hell for him. Hannah Baxter: Australian mother and children 'senselessly murdered' Australia is mourning the deaths of a woman and her three children who were "senselessly murdered" in a car fire. The case has sparked national outcry over domestic violence. "Australians all over the country are just shocked, saddened and devastated about what has happened in a suburban street," Mr Morrison told reporters on Thursday. "Hannah and her three children [were] so senselessly and maddeningly murdered in what has occurred in a terrible act of violence," he said. On Thursday, Queensland Police said the children and their mother had been killed, and there were no suspicious circumstances concerning Mr Baxter's death. "There's a rising sense of anger in this day and age [that] the scourge of family and domestic violence still can lead to the death of five people," said Det Insp. Mark Thompson. What do we know? Police were first called to the scene in the suburb of Camp Hill the city's east in at 08:30 local time on Wednesday They found the couple's three children - Laianah, 6, Aaliyah, 4, and Trey, 3 - dead inside the car, and their mother burning on the ground beside it. Hannah Clarke, 31, died later in hospital from extensive burns. Witnesses told Australian media she had screamed "he's poured petrol on me" and "save my children" when helpers rushed to the site. They said Mr Baxter, 42, had attempted to stop helpers intervening, before grabbing a knife from the car and stabbing himself to death. Emergency responders were unable to revive him when they arrived at the scene. Reports have previously referred to Mrs Clarke as Mrs Baxter, but police said she was using her maiden name. She had been driving the car at the time of the incident. What do we know about the victims? Family services had previously supported Mrs Clarke with domestic violence issues, and a temporary protection order had been granted by authorities, police said. She had moved to her parents' home in Camp Hill with the children last year after separating from her husband. The two had been working out custody arrangements. "She loved them so fiercely and she was doing everything she could to protect them," her friend Caitlin Langford told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. What has the reaction been? Tributes have poured in for the victims. There has been widespread anger and despair, amid ongoing concern about violence against women. On average, one woman per week is murdered in Australia by a current or former male partner, according to the Bureau of Statistics. Former Olympic cyclist Tracy Gaudry said: "#HannahBaxter and her three young children died today in the most despicable way. They should have been safe. Mourning for lives lost, thoughts with family, friends and community." "Another week, another man annihilates his wife and family. Australia, we need to talk," said Australian poet Rob Scott.
  11. What an arrogant, ignorant, hypocritical and revolting woman.
  12. Bernie all the way. I love him, love his policies and passion. A true alternative to the status quo of "Republicans lite " . Far too many politicians today talk of being " in the middle" which is not much different to the corporate politicians and press that truly run things.
  13. Thank you Acko That is so caring and generous. Thank you .
  14. Wombats are the heroes of the Australian fires, sheltering animals in their burrows AMID ALL THE devastation caused by Australia’s bushfires, an unlikely hero has emerged: the wombat. Quite generously, wombats have reportedly been allowing other animals to take refuge in their homes, as they hide from the blazes that threaten their own habitats. Complex underground tunnels, created by wombats, have served as safehouses for other species like wallabies and echidnas, allowing them to survive an otherwise fatal situation. Peter Hylands, a documentary filmmaker, visited the burnt landscape of the Cobargo Wildlife Sanctuary, and told Yahoo, “You’ve got animals that are completely unscathed and those must be the animals that have been under the ground, it’s the only explanation when the fire zones are so extensive.” This sentiment is echoed by Wombat Rescue manager Yolandi Vermaak, who said, “At most, there would be animals fleeing into burrows. I’ve seen echidnas going into burrows — lizards, and skinks, rabbits — those sort of things. I have even seen a small wallaby.” Vermaak also said that she hasn’t seen a single burnt wombat during her rescue missions, and instead has discovered a series of survivors — wombats and several other species — hiding in the tunnels. When the fires are eventually extinguished, hopefully wombats get the praise they deserve — both from the people of Australia and their fellow members of the animal kingdom.
