Blog comments Your Say

  • No thanks rich.
    The legislation you speak of never made it to Parliament so how did "rejected but not before several attempts to get it passed." happen?
    Sad to see the Women in Power issues you have, you'll never get over that I guess.

  • Yes Bob , rejected but not before several attempts to get it passed.
    Gillard is a grub, she is a compulsive liar , and a backstabber.
    Anything that drones out of her mouth should be taken with a grain of salt.
    She lied to us at the last election and is still unable to admit any mistakes which makes her very dangerous property to deal with.
    An unaccountable government, do we really want another 4 years of deaf ears and being dictated too.
    I don't think so.Goofy's dog Pluto would make a better PM.

    Roxon produced a piece of paper, the piece of paper was rejected and will not happen.
    Get over it.
    I can't wait to see you in the Commie uniform frog marching down Queen Street when the Commies AKA the Coalition get in and try and force people to take jobs up north to justify the hidden agenda of the Politburo. Plus their Socialist agenda of paid parental leave paid for by the wealth redistribution tactic of taxing big business will surely roon Australia.

  • If Gillard get her way, you will not be able to discuss religion or politics on this site anymore.
    G.R.O.G. NOW or free speech will be gone forever after the next election.
    You will not be able to defame ISLAM or CHRISTIANITY.
    You will not be able to discuss polituics in the workplace for fear of upsetting someone.
    She has already attempted this in her last term.
    At the next election the choice is yours.

    Free speech or Communism.

  • A biology Lesson
    Mohammed was white, a particularly white tribe

    WE are not called Racist if we disagree with white Americans OR any Caucasions
    SO to use Racist in the Islam bebate proves you are an IDIOT
    You cannot defend ISLAM , the Koran is there for all to see.
    IT wants you ddead or subdued it wants your Society and it does not want democracy or western Law
    It is a filthy Ideology that started in AD 570 and should have finished when MO was poisened by a Jew
    If you have the intellect to study Islam you will see why middle eastern problems will never end
    'If the Palestinians lay down there weapons there will be Peace
    If the Jews lay down their weapons they will be slaughtered"
    Look at Wilders film ISAM is the enemy wake up you Dhimmies

  • Not sure how the zoo analogy works here. Humans are one species. Just because someone has been raised in a different country, has been raised to speak a different language and adhere to a different religion doesn't make them a separate species.
    Just the luck of the birth canal means that you could be raised as a Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Heathen, Jedi Knight, Atheist.
