For when one interesting things thread isn't enough.
So nothing clear and worthwhile to say Pup?
Nothing like, we can object to the TPP, object to bi-partisan corruption and object to Chinese influence in Australia at the same time?
Maybe you can't walk and chew gum at the same time Pup, either that or you're massively compromised somewhere along the line.
Has he ever, ever, bought anything worthwhile to the table........no.......
"From today I declare Australia is under new management and is once more open for business." - Tony Abbott's victory speech.
Thanks for that contribution, Fitzy.
And Andy, regarding all that, isn't it a given? Especially regarding all stages of the TPP, and my explicit criticism. I dunno, maybe you missed it. Speaking about trade agreements, missed my ChAFTA stuff too I guess.
And for those that don't know, ChAFTA is the China–Australia Free Trade Agreement.
Funny, negotiations began in 2005 under Howard, and completed in 2014 and signed between the two countries on 17 June 2015, all under Abbott.
Open for business, indeed.
So why the real reluctance to call out any Chinese dodginess?
Probably because he directly benefits from it.
In what way?
Righteous emotional indignation?
you still don't get it facto
smart as fuck but dumb as fuck
you are just like that pompous twit on outsiders, quoting your bullshit one eyed classical literature, only difference is, he has at least some capacity to read contemporay politics
Late to the party again, but re the airline bailouts, yes should be some national ownership. Instead they walk away with no liability.
However once again the public gets shafted with the government refusing any guarantee for super funds if there is a run on them caused by a change of policy allowing access to a portion of super, at the worst possible time. This change alone is a disaster for retirement savings of anyone with a low balance.
Any weakening of the industry funds would be considered a good outcome for the LNP, afterall they were trying for that before the banking royal commission.
Access shouldn’t be allowed at a time like this with almost half the value lost in the market.
"In what way?"
he's on the pay roll
either that, or he's so beholden to his ideology he's got a soft spot for xi. a bit of column a + column b
Careful Fliplid, none of that. China's over that way.
Sypkahn, you watch Outsiders!? You do know it's an actual show, yeah?
Either answer will be telling.
...only when I'm at my mates house who has cable. I refuse to give murdoch any money whatsoever. he's a dog...
that pompous twit really is like you too
or you're like him...
a classical, conservative, condescending wanker
Ho ho ho. Triggered!
Speaking of which...
You've got a hard on for Rita Panahi too I bet...like Indo and Optimist.
Ah, the company we keep.
Ok, somebody, anybody, tell me what the hell is going on here...
Grotty ass bitch?
In your Facebook feed?
actually , the company you keep...
the irony, again
Hahaha. Got nothing yet again, Sypkahn.
Repeating yourself, aping, mumbling and stumbling.
Stop it, bro. You're killing yourself!
Pup, it's you that's barely said a sensible word.
Why are you so reluctant to call out shit behaviour by and for China?
And why do you try to shoot down anyone who does?
Worried that the chick with the arts degree won't talk to you anymore?
The Guardian and the SMH are not exactly Fox news if you know what I mean.
No, Andy I don't know what you mean. Calling out ChAFTA or the treatment of Uighurs or the Chinese government view of Taiwan (cool country by the way...anyone else been there?) may not register as strongly with you as incessantly posting anti-Chinese whatever for years, or more recently during this crisis shrieking "fucking vibrant scum", or group-think (like that?) posting FB slop titled "grotty ass bitch" as what? balance?
Actually, remember when the Don Dale incident occurred, and that's when it was decided on here it would be a perfect time to talk about so-called 'reverse racism' at QUT?
Call it what you want, but jumping onboard with the resident 24/7 Sinophobe bigot, well any ethnicity with him really, and others whipped into an anxious frenzy (though at least understandable to a degree on their part), well, it's not for me.
Back to "give 'em enough rope" on the 2GB thread, hey Andy?
And step away from the threads.
Good idea. Maybe.
A passing note: Isolation is going to do some weird shit to people. And it will be evident. It already is.
I include myself there.
Personally, time to cook and read more. And other indoor physical activities.
And surf too...just quietly.
Hahaha! Working from home!
I appreciate what you're saying but I guess the thing that's niggling me is that there very much seems to be an element of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" in this particular case.
I mean, China sends out people to pilfer from all over the world (as has Israel) and then to rub salt into the wound sells certain countries shit products as well.
Worth pointing the finger at in addition to Uighur genocide?
Yeah don't be afraid to get out of the house, don't know about you but it makes all the difference to me.
I put a 40 pound long tail tuna in that ice box I bought off you Andy.
come around and pick up a slice.
Haha, nice one!
Off the rocks ?
WHO Wu flu...
... and most embarrassing twitter vid confronting WHO in that story is now missing...
Melissa Chan vid ....just in case anyone's feeling a bit sensitive...
WHO have been caught out in the politics of China / Taiwan, there has been some good commentary about the aggressive tactics of China using all the levers to isolate Taiwan using WHO is just the tip.
China also sends WHO a fair amount of funding so its messy.
The caravan has moved on, but the dogs continue to bark!
ATTENTION: This may only apply to WA residents, but then again, where there is a will, there is a way. WA has now enacted intra-state travel bans today, which restrict movement between defined regions. These will be in place for the foreseeable future.
Now, a known associate (or let’s call him a ‘business partner’) has come up with a scheme to circumvent these travel restrictions between regions, especially in regards to the upcoming Winter surfing season in the NW of WA. He is prepared to offer a covering letter stating that the recipient has essential employment in said region, thus allowing them to travel to said region. This can be tailored to suit whatever profession or trade you are involved in to aid in its veracity.
You may have heard ‘news’ that the Bluff and Gnaraloo have been locked down. Keep believing this ‘news’ if you wish (pssssst…it isn’t true for those in the know).
Of course there will be a fee attached in arranging this, and I must state that I myself will get a commission for every referral and successful transaction. There may even be scope for barter and/or trade in goods in lieu of cash, though this is still in the discussion stage.
Tough economic times call for creative and tough responses.
So, empty Bluff and Gnaraloo enticing enough?
Expressions of interest here will be noted, and direct messaging and correspondence worked out accordingly.
It’s already April*, and time waits for no surfer!
You're kidding right Pupkin? Profiteering off a pandemic?
He who hesitates is lost
A mouthy gronk encouraging crew to spread disease through the remote regions .
Does it get any worse ?
And then to believe that it was revealing of some kind of cunning when anyone with a paucityof character could get there easy enough.
If it wasn’t obvious bait you’d be speechless.
Would love to see Facto defending himself when Reed keels over from a virus that he’s bragged about potentially introducing for a few dollars.
You are the April fool Blumpkin. Good try, ya nerd.
Probably appropriate to post this under this heading
Routine? movement of 300 tanks by rail in California.
Read into it what you will.https://twitter.com/NBVCCalifornia/status/1242565847681359873
One of the comments mentions that the tanks are coming back from a military exercise in South Korea.
Which begs the question why would you send over 300 tanks, imagine just the cost of doing this.
Watch this space.
