  1. The crazy ideas and so called solutions to gun massacres is really making many American senators look stupid, cowardly and clueless. Every other country in the world has mental health issues, violent video games and violent tv shows and movies shown. Yet, only in America do these gun massacres occur over and over. Just having proper background checks and banning powerful assault weapons would be a start but won't even pass the Senate.
  2. Bumping this thread to yet again highlight how revolting, stupid and cowardly this excuse for a man is. How on earth can anyone support or vote for him ? He cares more about guns than children. He disgusts me. Ted Cruz angrily quits interview after being confronted about gun control The Texas Republican senator Ted Cruz confronted a British reporter and angrily left an interview after he was asked why school shootings like that in Uvalde, where 19 children and two adults were killed, happen so often in the US. “I’m sorry you think American exceptionalism is awful,” Cruz said. “You’ve got your political agenda. God love you.” On Thursday, the news site Axios published a list of the leading recipients of gun lobby donations in the current Congress. Cruz was clear at the top, with $442,000 donated to campaign organisations or political action committees. Axios noted: “The figures are much higher if you count indirect contributions, like the NRA’s purchase of attack ads against opponents.” On Tuesday morning in Uvalde, an 18-year-old shot his grandmother then entered Robb elementary school and barricaded himself in a classroom. After about 40 minutes, during which parents implored police to charge and tackle the gunman, the assailant was killed by a Swat team. On Wednesday Cruz spoke to Mark Stone, US correspondent for Sky News, at a vigil in Uvalde. “There are 19 sets of parents who are never gonna get to kiss their child goodnight,” Cruz said. Stone asked: “Is this the moment to reform gun laws?” Cruz said: “You know, it’s easy to go to politics.” “But it’s important,” Stone said. “It’s at the heart of the issue.” “I get that that’s where the media likes to go,” Cruz said. Stone said many people at the vigil wanted gun reform. National polling consistently shows large majorities in support of such reform. Cruz said reform proposals came from “Democrats and the media, inevitably, when some violent psychopath murders people”. Stone pointed out that the 18-year-old gunman in Uvalde was a “violent psychopath who’s able to get a weapon so easily … two AR-15” assault rifles. Cruz said: “If you want to stop violent crime, the proposals the Democrats have, none of them would have stopped this.” Stone said: “Many people around the world just cannot fathom, ‘Why only in America? Why is this American exceptionalism so awful?’” Cruz said: “You know, I’m sorry you think American exceptionalism is awful.” Stone said he thought “this aspect of it” was awful. “You’ve got your political agenda,” Cruz said, putting his hands on the reporter’s shoulders, saying “God love you” and walking away. Stone and another reporter pursued, asking, “I just want to understand why you do not think that guns are the problem in America” and “Why is America the only country that makes this kind of mass shooting?” Stone said: “You can’t answer that, can you, sir?” Cruz turned. Leaning close to the reporter and jabbing his finger, he said: “Why is it that people come from all over the world to America? Because it’s the freest, most prosperous, safest country on earth. “And save me the propaganda.”
  3. Nothing will ever change in America sadly. Just watching the news tonight and seeing politicians from Texas all saying they won't consider watering down gun laws. They have no intention of ever taking away the rights of " law abiding innocent gun owners " as they call it. They would much rather live with innocent children getting murdered on mass at their schools, then deny someone their right to own a high powered gun that can kill many so quickly. I don't know how they can live with themselves or how they have so many supporters. The NRA love guns more than people. Sick of hearing that chestnut again that "Guns don't kill, people do" that the NRA trot out all the time. Do they ever really stop to think that in every other country in the world, there are none of these consistent gun massacres. Only in the USA. Only in the one country where it is so easy to buy high powered guns. It is so obvious to everyone else in every other country in the world. Counties that did have a massive gun massacre, quickly changed the laws. America has so many including in schools, churches, cinemas, supermarkets and workplaces yet nothing ever changes. Feel so sorry for the American people that despair and do want change.
  4. How does this corrupt stupid clown get away with everything ? It is an embarrassment to have him as a leader. He is like a comedy character in a satire tv show.
  5. I know I usually would rather watch paint dry then turn on Sky after dark but did briefly the other night. It was delicious seeing those crazy right wing Murdoch puppets so angry and shocked. Same with the Herald Scum in Melbourne. They will never learn. Their childish insults about latte drinking lefties in Melbourne and bored wives ( when the female candidates were professional women and Doctors themselves ) were hilarious. These so called lefties who swung the seats from the right wingers were in safe Liberal seats and were former Liberal voters. They told the government time and time again they wanted action on climate change, women's rights and were horrified at how right wing and sexist they had become. Instead the government kept pushing further to the right and Morrison giving a "captain's pick" to a rampant anti trans campaigner. Making Dutton leader will just make matters worse. He is more right wing than even Morrison. Hope they stay in opposition for years. We just know Murdoch will be plotting away in how to change people's minds but thank goodness Australians everywhere are completely awake to how he operates.
  6. He is spot on. Admire him for using this platform to comment on how senators refuse to budge while so many innocent people are killed.
  7. He is one of those hypocritical multi millionaires that seek power and control. He sprouts freedom of speech but supports fascists. He is against unions and also does not want taxes for the rich - holding others back while he makes billions. It is incredibly offensive and galling when the wealthiest people don't want unions and protections for workers. They make my blood boil with their selfish, vindictive and greedy behaviour and self serving horrible ideology.
  8. The Libs are crazy if they think Peter Dutton will bring people back to them. He is one of the reasons so many Lib supporters turned away from them in disgust. They need to get away from the far right, not put more of them into power.
  9. Agree with your every word. The independents - teal independents who are mainly moderate female Lib voters horrified at how right wing, misogynistic and anti climate change the current libs are - are doing all the necessary work that Labor wanted to do . Some liberals would never vote Labor so these independents are fantastic for turning people away from the government. Great result for Australia.
  10. Yesterday’s result proved otherwise. Great result. Remember too, Labor is in power in the majority of states. Most state governments are Labor.
  11. Yes, hope this result is the start of the end of the far right taking over parties worldwide.
  12. Sorry to bring Australian politics into this discussion Kurt but I do think that our system of preference voting is fantastic. Our outgoing government had many of it's traditional supporters horrified at how right wing it was becoming. Many of their usual supporters in safe seats, turned on them in droves and voted for independents instead. Because we have preference voting, if the independent did not win, their next preference is counted. So they can easily send a huge message to the government or show their anger at policies that they find abhorrent and against what they believe in. In our case, many independents who wanted climate change action and many women who hated the misogyny that was being shown by the government, actually won these seats off the government. They now will work with our new government which is the Labor party as they share some similar ideas. They could not relate or tolerate how right wing the government had become. The Republican party at the moment is an absolute disgrace. Surely many traditional Republicans would be horrified at how insane and unhinged Trump and co have made them. I am not in America so should not comment but from what I have seen here in Australia, many traditional conservative voters are now much more progressive and hated what this current conservative government were turning into They decimated the right wing of the Liberal party ( the name is misleading, that is our conservative party ) and they now will have to look at getting the party back to what is was. Can Americans see moderate Republicans turning on this current Republican party which has been completely hijacked by the ultra right, religious and racist idiots who were not even brave enough to call out the thugs who stormed the White House ? Surely many Republicans would be horrified at having the likes of Majorie Taylor Green, Ted Cruz and co representing them. Just interested to see what Americans feel.
