:lol:

Bill, i dont think i have a chip on my shoulder...the last hoo-haa ive hsd here with the unwanted hole in the target, was not specifically Lib based...it was merely calling out someone picking a point in time in political history, & lying by omission to push an agenda...
If you read back, ive mentioned both medicare & gst--key economic points originally, & no doubt conveniently omitted...that did not come from any chip i assure you...

And i fsil to see how bursting housing bubbles in Japan 30 yrs ago are relevant to this weekends wake...

And as for the boat, mate someone else can have the life jacjet mate...you wont even get a mooring at the wharf on your return to land with all the boats lined up in the harbour shipping in the Syrians & Indonesians mate...

Ill have no choice but ride the downhill rolercoaster, & watch the already inflated housing & rental prices continue to rise due to negative gearing changes...putting further divide into our already segregated society.
And dont fool yourself this wont happen--to think tens of thousands of people will loose income from super investments, & housing investors will just find some magical tree to teplace this no longrr existant income stream is just naive...all this will do is take more money from the lower incomes & push up cost of living...it will stab you good...!!

Hopefully ill find solice one day when i get to shoot that sex bomb Martini of yours...!!

You know, a lack of education isn't an excuse for a lack of intelligence. I like to think some people can have both.

The refrain of the "farkwit" is to believe that Australia is somehow so special that we need a form of housing subsidy that almost no other country in the world has (and does not suffer for it), contributes to inflated housing prices, benefits only those who are in a position to own multiple properties, and that investors can jack their rents up at will be because the market will bear it.

If investors could jack up rents at will (with the removal of negative gearing), they already would. As for impacting the housing market (we'll conveniently forget about the grandfather clause, as well as negative gearing being removed only from existing properties), if said landlords can't jack up their rents because the market won't bear it, and are forced to sell, do you honestly believe no-one will buy those properties?

And how exactly is having negative gearing on existing properties an incentive for building new ones?

So a renter becomes a home owner because - waddaya know? - a market distortion has been removed and the market settles back into the natural law of supply and demand.

I see now why you'd rather hurl insults than have an intelligent debate you're incapable of having. You can go hide under that economic rock of yours now, and continue to fester against NASA and the 95% of scientists on earth who believe made-made emissions over the past 200 years have influenced the atmosphere.

But then, ignorance is bliss, right? :roll:

You can have whatever opinion you like. No-one is stopping you. I'm just not going to entertain your wild tangents or propensity to try to put words into other people's mouths.

Like I said earlier, if someone wants an intelligent debate, let's have one. But I'm fast losing hope of that ever happening around here . . .

SFFP and others, palmer united didn't respond to SSAA's statement request , as did the greens. no supprise :roll: . instead of insults and nit picking why not try constructive conversations to improve shooters situation ? nah, screw it ! it's more fun reading some of the insults on here , just like our political leaders at parliment question time :lol: :lol:

What homer?

Dude don't you know agenda 21 is real.. they first had agenda 1 then found agenda 2... and joined them to make.... agenda 21.

And all these terrorists are actually paid actors. All the politicians and police and media is on it to control and the only way is via an armed mallitia.

Seriously hasn't anyone actually thought this through if agenda really existed they would firstly have a lousy of all people with large stockpiles of ammo and they would go for these first...but wait it gets worse

Does anyone in their right mind think an armed mallitia with a few hundred people could stand against a fully trained army of a few thousands... maybe tens of thousands professional soldiers.... and lay more than a few hours or days at the most... and the first thing they would do is kill the mobile phone towers and telstra exchange/internet

Well we've been fighting the Taliban since 2001, so long that there are soldiers in the US Army that are deploying to Afghanistan that were born that year and also some who had a parent fight there as well. The taliban wipe their butt with river rocks, live in mud huts and have old beat up guns.

We went through the same thing in Vietnam. Us Americans did the same to the Brits in the Revolution in the 1700s. When we fought the Brits quite often we could rarely put a standing army together, often had our civilian firearms to use or battlefield pickups and relied on locals for food and water.

So yes in my right mind an armed militia could easily stand against a fully trained army.

Well ziad it's funny you should say that about the mobile ph towers we had fires up here a few mths ago and our mobile phones went down and on the screen was EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY and before that we had a cyclone and the same then with mobiles EMERGENCY CALLS ONLY so in the fires many of us tried to contact people to get out and leave their houses but couldn't get through when Telstra was asked why was this the case I was informed after much debate with them one person actually then said the towers were damaged from the fires ''HAH'' the towers are 400-500klm and relay tower is 80klm away from the fires and when confronted with that she said well it maybe for emergency personal to get through in an EMERGENCY and I said what about other people then she said ''I don't make the decisions sorry'' now if all this is capable in shutting down towers well they are doing it now as they see fit and for days at a time my opinion is they're putting peoples lives at risk like Asthma sufferers and such I have since rang Telstra soon after the event and they deny the whole thing so go figure seems the authorities have their finger everywhere well so it seems

GDB I think I read somewhere it's done for emergency personnel. Obviously during an emergency everyone wants to call their loved ones this puts too much pressure on the mobile network, its not readily known but many of the emergency services personnel are afford to use mobile phones as their radios can be unreliable. From memory the thought was people would still have a home phone.

Another interesting fact if you dial emergency number your mobile will use any available network, so if you have an optus phone in a telstra only area you can still call 000.

Wanaroo, mate in my fiction scenario, the establishment will identify militia, and attack without warning. But consider Vietnam, it was a country of thick jungle, and basically country that the occupying army was not familiar with.

Afghanistan, those people fought the USSR for 11+ years and fighting the Americans for 10+ years soni suppose they have a bit of training. But the country is very unique, full of very arid and hilly area, with many caves. If you look at history no one has actually been able to conquer the country (tribal areas) from Ghengis Khan. Also going back, it's also country that the occupying forces including American are not familiar with.

Anyway I am not army or mallitia..... so tbh don't really care

An armed populous will always form a considerable threat and opposition to an invading, occupying or controlling force. It's happened countless times in history and is the reason IMO that the UN has an agenda to disarm the general population of all countries.
