    It does feel like we've jumped from the frying pan into the fire with Biden in terms of real world issues. Obviously not all are of his doing and most have been festering for years, but none of this bodes well for the midterms or 2024. This country has no attention span, so if things really start to implode, just enough people may start to feel nostalgic for Trump to get him into the White House again. 

    When Trump is your better option, just give up.

    Do I think Facebook and Google need to be taxed properly? Hell yes.

    Do I think Facebook and Google need to monitor for hate speech and radicalisation better? Absolutely.

    Do I think our government should demand private businesses to provide a service and to also pay for that supposed privilege? No way.

    If the government's argument holds up, Facebook needs this newspaper content much more than the other way around. I don't think that's true, however, and neither does Facebook apparently.

    Thanks to our incredibly weak opposition, Australia's government is not used to being told no or having its position questioned.

    I think the guy in this video has it spot on.

     

    Agree 100% with everything you said, it's laughable how arrogant our govt are being and how the media companies affected are calling Facebook the bullies and that they "threw a tantrum" :lol:

    I don’t applaud them at all. They have blocked ALL news and government sites, legitimate ones, not just Murdoch scum. They have also taken down government sites such as health direct which informs many Australians of Coronavirus news and restrictions, vaccine information etc. Plus police sites, domestic violence help lines, , suicide helplines etc. Plus fire services and weather information - Queensland is coming up to cyclone season.   A complete disregard to the health and information to Australians who use Facebook because Mark Zuckerberg won’t even negotiate as Google did. Oh and all the fake news, right wing crackpots and conspiracy theory news are still there.  In a global pandemic, this is disgusting . 

    Yeah like I said poorly executed with all these non-news blocks, but I am glad they called this horrific govts bluff, being in bed with all the major news outlets in Australia and all. I am sure they will fix the issues with the blocking of other non-news outlets ASAP.

  4. Record label Mexican Summer has cut ties with Ariel Pink after the indie musician drew criticism for attending the pro-Trump rally in Washington D.C. earlier this week.

    “Due to recent events, Mexican Summer and its staff have decided to end our working relationship with Ariel Rosenberg AKA Ariel Pink moving forward,” Mexican Summer tweeted Friday.

    I appreciate your explanation, but you did state they were sort of alike in how you viewed them. My bad for asking you to share your opinion in greater detail. I  obviously misunderstood, but it was an invitation to debate. That’s what a forum is. Prime example of why there is no longer much of an active Madonna forum. 

    I said why I compared it to IB (in my opinion) - it's not an album that I can see myself putting on in the future when I just want to hear some Madonna music as they are more concept or "theatrical" albums that don't suit a casual listen outside of a couple of tracks (in my opinion) - and no need to be passive aggressive! 🙂

    @Bretticus is a great Madonna fan who is just giving his honest opinion and saying that he personally feels the same way about Madame X and I'm Breathless. He does not need to explain any further about how he feels and was not overly critical. He has posted  enough on this forum for us to know he is a dedicated fan. 

     

    👍 thanks @Jazzy Jan

    i didn’t realise I was critical at all! haha
