Hi Happy, very sorry to hear of your troubles. Many of us have being through that trial and when they ask to be put down we are p.ssweak but society is learning and things are changing quickly. If it was your mother don't expect to ever forget.

Don't go much on the almost constant whining of Pyne, but the conservatives have been after his head for a long time, with Bernadi long trying to usurp him and gain control in SA and still pulling weight within the party to try and achieve it despite leaving it.

Little in politics surprises me anymore.

Spanish Inquisition part 2 ... abuse of Canadian Human Rights to present a critical discussion of a pronoun at University.

Can I see the complaint? No
Who complained? Can't tell you that
How Many students? Can't tell you that but it is anywhere between 1 and all
This questioning is Kafkaesque

Gender Policy ... you are not allowed to transmit transphobia ... you caused harm and violence by discussing the use of pronouns ... don't you have any issue with the harm that you caused by that discussion?

It is now white supremacist / Nazi to use the wrong pronoun and you could lose your job. Also California is looking at introducing legislation that will incriminate the use of the wrong pronoun

The end of Higher Education. The arts faculties and in particular gender studies should be removed from Institutions of Higher Learning.

Interesting story on how a young "lost" man veered from left to right until he "became" someone - by spreading hatred and division.

Alt right are a disgrace.
Antifa are a disgrace.
America is being torn apart by the ideaologies of these two groups.
People who support one side over the other or say "they arent as bad as them" are providing the fuel and as a result, a second civil war is gaining momentum.
Crazy times.

It can become extreme because of their Constitution allowing guns and unbridled freedom of speech that allows hatred and threats as long as not first hand or direct.

Our exploitative shock jocks would adopt the same position here just for the big money they would attract, not necessarily believing in the rubbish. Co-incidentally the man who created the anti-discrimination act was on 4 Corners last night for potential corruption - Justice Lionel Keith Murphy.

And a gutless one at that - they were all gutless how they attacked women and children. But what I found amazing how he did a 180 degree turn from being anti-racist etc., shows what a bad influence shock jocks and hate websites etc. can be for certain easily-influenced individuals in search of something in life.

As well I have never understood how people search for something in life??? We have children, surf, footie, ladies/gay partners, grog (shhh), rock music and good tucker - what else could we want.

Guy Clark - Hank Williams said it best

One man's hawk is another man's dove, one man's hug is another man's shove
One man's rock is another man's sand, one man's fist is another man's hand
One man's tool is another man's toy, one man grief is another man's joy
One man's squawk is another man's sing, one man's crutch is another man's wing
One man's pride is another man's humble, one man's step is another man's stumble
One man's pleasure is another man's pain, one man's loss is another man's gain
One man's can is another man's grail, one man's curse is another man's sail
One man's right is another man's wrong, one man's curse is another man's song
For every father's daughter
For every mother's son
The only think the same
Is that is ain't for everyone
Hank Williams said it best
He said it a long time ago
"Unless you have made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw"
One man's deuce is another man's ace, one man's back is another man's face
One man's reason is another man's rhyme, one man's dollar is another man's dime
One man's tree is another man's post, one man's angel is another man's ghost
One man's rain is another man's drought, one man's hope is another man's doubt
One man's false is another man's fair, one man's toup is another man's hair
One man's hand is another man's stub, one man's feast is another man's grub
One man's dread is another man's dream, one man's sigh is another man's scream
One man's water is another man's wine, one man's daughter leave another man's cryin'
For every father's daughter
For every mother's son

One man's friend is another man's foe, one man's Joesph is another man's Joe
One man's hammer is another man's nail, one man's freedom is another man's jail
One man's road is another man's rut, one man's if is another man's but
One man's treasure is another man's trash, one man's landin' is another man's crash
One man's word is another man's lie, one man's dirt is another man's sky
