    everybody comes to hollywooood....

    don't know why but I feel sad when I look at Jessica

    It is sad. We can all have issues with the way we look but these people take it to such an extreme. There’s such a myriad of issues going on underneath the skin. The irony is that her money would have been better spent on therapy and a personal trainer (gender reassignment aside). Not to mention the hospital addiction these people clearly have, they spend half their life in there surrounded by nurses etc.

    And it won’t end well. The fact that she has an OF account implies her money must be precarious. A horrible cycle to be trapped in.


  2. Desperately hope that the conservatives will be shown the door but after the last election I really have low expectations for the Australian voting majority. 

    And I’ve also noticed a rise in ‘friends’ advocating the more extreme right wing parties like UAP. People who have otherwise been left wing who believe all the freedom/nationalist crap that comes from these charlatans. It depresses me.

    Trumpian politics (down under remix)

    I think liberals/progressives have become a party that governs according to what a minority of people are saying on Twitter. They've become OBSESSED with social justice to a fault and listen to the loudest voices on social media versus the voices that need to be heard on Main Street.  Bernie was successful because we was talking about ECONOMIC JUSTICE which resonates far more with working class voters than worrying about pronouns, labels, #MeToo, BLM, or any of the rest of this nonsense that the Democrats have signed onto. 

    I'm not saying racial inequality isn't important, it absolutely is. But I work closely with MANY members of our community here in the city I live in. Black leaders aren't worried about taking a Black woman off of a syrup bottle. Latino leaders aren't worried about being called Latnix. LGTBQ leaders aren't worried about adding another fucking color to their flag. People on a local level are worried about their schools, they don't WANT their police defunded - just reformed, they WANT some kind of FAIR border security, they want their infrastructure fixed, affordable housing, and the list goes on and on. 

    The point is, working class people of ALL colors are generally concerned about the same things. But liberals continue to box people in, label them, and segregate them by sex, race, class, education level, and sexual preference. And I am - along with MANY center left people - are really fucking tired of it. 

    Politics is about 50 + 1. It's about winning elections. And if liberals continue to talk like 'The Squad' does, they're going to be in the minority for a long, long, long time after next years elections. 

    I guess this is the problem when issues are boiled down to culture wars. So incredibly toxic while real and important issues like healthcare, education, wealth inequality and the climate get pushed aside for yet another election cycle.

    I'm not American but I love visiting and it’s terrifying watching their system unravel. It’s been a long time coming and is far more complex than my post obviously. Sadly similar situations can be seen in the UK and Australia - coincidently where the poisonous hand of Murdoch media has also been gaslighting people for decades.

    50+1 is a pretty blunt assessment but ultimately you’re right. Enacting real change though requires so much more but there are very few politicians willing to walk the walk when it comes to long term vision.

    You don’t see the druggies lurking around the cbd starting trouble :0


    i have to be on a look out when walking through the cbd, especially on Elizabeth street near Flinder station, where Subway and that 24 hour Donut place next to Coles is. 

    I think presuming that those less fortunate than you and are possibly in need of some sort of social/health welfare are ‘druggies’ is a bit of an unhelpful attitude. 

    Crime can happen anywhere obviously but Sydney and Melbourne CBDs are hardly downtown Kabul.

    This is off topic but why do Sydney love Vile Kyle and Jackie O ?   He is so offensive and idiotic and she just agrees and enables him.  The rest of Australia hate them but they rate so well in Sydney. It is a mystery to so many. 

    I wish I knew the answer to that. Utterly perplexing. It was the same with Alan Jones. People tune in to listen in droves and agree with everything they say.

    I don’t want to sound like a snob but it’s hard not to question people’s intelligence at times.

    Please explain to me how and why you find this entertaining and the gospel truth?

  6. Such a boys club pick. And yes, the man is a career conservative who is a fervent catholic and doesn’t even believe in contraception. BUT THE ECONOMY!

    The false narrative of our LNP being economic warriors wins again.

    I wasn’t a fan of Gladys but the personality cult that surrounds her is unbelievable here in Sydney. I’m astounded by the amount of gay men who stan for her, that’s what you get with Murdoch media and her unedifying appearances on the Kyle & Jackie O radio show. It seems pseudo intellectual when they say they like her without having any concept that she was the leader of the Conservative party and under investigation for corruption, but this is the scary world we live in.

    The same people don’t seem to question why a right wing woman who is unmarried and childless is considered ‘independent’ but someone like Julia Gillard had her partners sexuality questioned, was called ‘heartless’ for not having children, and indeed her own leadership abilities were called into question for the very reason she never had children.

    Anyhow rant over!
