“Trump is a man who has shown himself unfit, not just for high office, but for any office; not just in his abilities as a leader, but in his qualities as a man; not just occasionally, but on every day of the campaign. He is not just deficient in knowledge, experience, judgment, tact, decency, integrity, leadership, policy— but utterly lacking in all. He is not just the worst candidate for president ever nominated by a major party, he is very nearly the worst candidate possible” Posted over a year ago

Love that Trump can say the most outrageous, offensive things about people but the moment Hillary says something mildly un-PC, like that there's a portion of Trump backers who are "xenophobic, racist or Islamophobic", she gets absolutely crucified.

"If she [Hillary Clinton] gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks..... Although the second amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know".

Wow. Really. Yet another clumsy and damaging remark by Trump. Inciting/suggesting/condoning violence against a political opponent.. literally a violation of the most basic rule of democratic civilisation. When will people realise his complete unsuitability to be president of the US? I sure hope it's before November. Posted over a year ago
audreygrace412 commented…
I'd rather have a President who says damaging things get taken the wrong way than actually does damaging things, like violate the basic rule of democracy though voter fraud, registration fraud and voter machine hacking to choose the candidate that the people did not want. She is the only presidential candidate ever to be under an FBI investigation while running yet somehow she was still able to run? Other people were fired for doing less than her as Secretary of State, which she failed when she couldn't even figure out to keep her email secure. I sure hope in November we don't elect a criminal in Hillary for the first time as our President. She'll be even worse than Bush Jr was! over a year ago

I'm not worried about Brexit, when has a combination of nationalism and economic depression ever turned out badly in Europe? Britain has yielded to petty xenophobes wanting to reclaim an imaginary past, who will take no responsibility for the ensuring economic havoc but instead blame immigrants. You won't get trade deals: you're not an empire anymore. Currency and shares are in free fall. The science funding, roads, freedom of movement that the EU provided will go. Dark times ahead.

Basically- against the advice of economists, foreign affairs experts, the Bank of England, IMF, OECD, UK Treasury, every world leader with the exception of Trump- they’ve condemned themselves to becoming an insignificant little island off the coast of Europe, with a lower standard of living for future generations and far less important role in the world.

Today I cast my vote in the Connecticut Republican primary (by absentee ballot) for Ted Cruz, Texas U.S. senator, consistent conservative, and friend of the Constitution, whom I have liked for years. In the 2016 cycle, Cruz was and is the only choice for serious, authentic, movement conservatives. I am not the first to say he is the Reagan of our time, and I won't be the last. Posted over a year ago
SJF_Penguin2 commented…
Of the two other remaining Republican candidates, John Kasich was always a non-starter for me because of his support for amnesty, his expansion of Medicaid, and his get-along moderate attitude, which values the idea of bipartisanship more than fighting for conservative goals. Donald Trump was fine as an entertainer—I watched early seasons of "The Apprentice" myself—but, among many other things, he lacks an ideological core (conservative or liberal), and is confused or unknowledgeable about many issues of the day. It is my hope that Cruz will win the Republican nomination (at this point, most likely at a contested national convention); if he fails to do so, I will most likely support whoever does get the Republican nomination, though I would consider defecting to a third-party candidate if he or she were viable and more conservative than nominee Trump. over a year ago
SJF_Penguin2 commented…
I will never, ever vote for a Democrat for any office (not even dog catcher if we elected them); I would rather eat a penguin. The idea of a President Hillary Clinton (or a President Comrade Bernie Sanders, the candidate of whiny Millennials and leftist socialists) scares me to death, and should scare to death any rational, moral person. Someday America will elect its first female president, but voting for a woman just because she's a woman is ridiculous. And sexist. I hope instead that America's first female president will be a conservative, elected for her values and her vision, not her sex. over a year ago
SJF_Penguin2 commented…
As for partisanship dividing the country, well, I'm at the point now where I would just prefer two countries. I don't want a second civil war, but if there were ever a Brexit-type national referendum to peacefully split the United States into Conservative America and Liberal America, I would vote in favor.

Current situation in my country... The elder people in senior homes are being neglected and the government says it's the fault of the children because they don't take good enough care of them.

Idealism, realism - Or, a mixture of both?

Do you think it is better to be realistic, idealistic, or have varying principles from both? Posted over a year ago
Riku114 commented…
I would say both. Why? Because realistic people probably wont be living the happiest lives, but they would be able to stand through it when the real parts of life actually happens. Idealistic people see everything so ideal that they cant stand through the real parts from real life, though it tends to make their life a tad bit happier then the realistic people. So if you were a mix of the both, you could either get the pros or the cons. If you get the pros it would be great if you get the cons...... Well do I need to explain? over a year ago
hetalianstella commented…
Well idealism gives you dreams and goals and motivation, and realism gives you the wisdom and knowledge to achieve them. An equal balance of both I think is more healthy for your mental functioning and working towards succeeding real life goals. Idealism makes life more fun and creative, but too much of it will make you set too high of standards which will be too unrealistic to accomplish. But realism helps you better accept a situation as it is and help you become more prepared for the future. But too much realism makes you feel unable to reach out and do something different. Without Idealism we wouldn't have theories and certain branches of science, art, music. But without realism we wouldn't be able to gain and adapt to information needed for everyday life. over a year ago

So here comes Australia Day... And with it the inevitable racist posts. So many, but all along the same xenophobic lines: "immigrants [who they call 'boat people'] are trying to change our national day... if you don't like MY country then go back to where you came from, I grew here and I'm proud... aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi!". I'm sure these sorts of people are not only confined to Australia. So sad to see how a day that's meant to unite instead is used to divide. Posted over a year ago
ThePrincesTale commented…
Also, what they fail to realise is that it's not foreigners who have something against Australia Day- it's the Aborgines. And for good reason- it's the celebration of the date that the British landed and began the takeover of their land and the killing of their people. If the rednecks want to play the "I grew here, you flew here, it's MY country" game, then it just backfired severely- it's not the "non-Australians", but the TRUE AUSTRALIANS who want to see change.But you know, who cares about actual facts when there's an opportunity for migrant bashing? over a year ago

Ever notice that on lots of polls here where everyone else picked one option, there's one person who picked the other one? And then they never give an explanation or support their choice in comments. Then someone says "Who picked 'no'/'yes'/'whatever'?" I'm not trying to be biased with my picks on polls, I'm just saying. Call me silly, but I'm beginning to wonder if there's a user who doesn't care about the poll itself, they just do this for kicks. :/ What do you think? Posted over a year ago
bri-marie commented…
I don't think they're necessarily doing it for the kicks, and I don't necessarily think it's just one user. Maybe they don't feel comfortable getting into a debate with such a minority opinion. Or maybe they just don't feel strongly enough to comment. There are lots of times where I pick on option on a pick, but then don't say anything because I just don't feel strongly enough about the issuse to start a debate on it. over a year ago

Sappp commented…
Even if tried as an adult, they can not get a life sentence. 15 years is the maximum for voluntary manslaughter (and I am not sure they will be charged for that) and if they are convicted for involuntary manslaughter the maximum sentence is 2 or 4 years. over a year ago
Sappp commented…
I did not mean that there should be no punishment. What I mean is that with this people will turn to criminal law as a solution and they will demand a high sentence. They will be outraged if these kid do not get the punishment they feel they deserve.. and that will be it. Meanwhile. nothing will change on the footballfields, just like nothing is changing with children that are being bullied.

I'm sorry Sappp. I'm gonna agree with Chaann94. No, it was not murder, it was manslaughter. But I'm not gonna judge from a judicial point, but from a personal one.

The American election is not far away...But its apparant that although the US prides itself as a bastion of democracy, its voting system is biased against the poor. Elections will be held on a Tuesday- a normal working day. Several states have complex voter-identification rules that make early voting difficult. Generally, 1/3 of people don't participate & at present, contest appears close, but one really does wonder how the Republicans would fare if there was compulsory voting system in place... Posted over a year ago
Cinders commented…
You also need an address to vote, so... there go the homeless voters. It's a plutocracy, for sure, with voters being mostly middle and upper class. But to be fair, it's the educated middle class that tend to be more liberal, because they've seen more of the world outside their backyard. These are the types who volunteer in soup kitchens or Habitat for Humanity. Right now, they are the voice of the poor. It's not ideal (because the poor should be allowed to speak for themselves) but it's better than nothing. "Bastion of democracy"? LOL That phrase just cracked me up. over a year ago
ThePrincesTale commented…
Lol... still think it's, let's use the phrase, a "rip-off". I just think compulsory voting would create a fairer country with the government as a more accurate reflection of what the people really want, thus a true democracy. However, the US, right-wing as it is, will never put such a system in place- it would be awfully inconvenient for the more conservative parties if the less-educated, less well-off had a say in it too. I think you can understand my concern, as the US election really is important to the world as a whole, and well, I just don't think the voting system for the most significant vote on earth is up to scratch... over a year ago
Cinders commented…
They may learn about the systems, the parties, etc, but issues are different in every election. Just because you know political theory, doesn't necessarily mean you know which candidate to vote for without watching what they do, listening to what they say, and examining the issues. Being well-informed on the issues and thus a well-informed voter is different from being a citizen educated in civics and politics. over a year ago

Food for thought:

I heard what Richard Murdoch said about a rape baby being God's gift.
When I was 17, I was raped by my boyfriend. He hurt me badly. I was scared of him, and had to get social resources from a local women's shelter to break up with him.
I never told my parents.
Weeks later I started throwing up 12 and 14 times a day. Posted over a year ago
Cinders commented…
I got a pregnancy test for free at Planned Parenthood during the time I should have been in Econ 101. It was positive. Even though I knew that I had not chosen to have unprotected sex, my cheeks burned with shame. It was September of both my Sr. Year of HS and my freshman year of college... I did both at the same time. I won a varsity level swimming meet the day before I had my secret abortion. Four days after that, I awoke with my parents sitting at the foot of my hospital bed sobbing. I had nearly died from the abortion I attempted to get at a local clinic that was cheaper than but not related to Planned Parenthood... I just want to say, that the person who raped me took a lot of choices from me. His baby was not a blessing. It was not a gift. I have experience two blessed gifts since then, my beloved, wanted, planned sons... I know the difference. over a year ago

I know the pain, shame, fear, anger, and near soul destroying guilt that comes when your rapist leaves you with that last, tiny freedom... The freedom to choose whether he forces a child on you... Even when you did not get to choose when he forced himself on you. Mr. Murdochs words may sound noble to some. They sound like curse to me. ~ Sarah over a year ago

i believe that God sends blessing in disguises and that sometimes you may go trhough hell to get your blessing...but i don't think could ever tell someone so casuall that a raped baby is a good thing. I understand maybe what he meant but the way it came out sounds so not insensitive but just plain thoughtless to the idea of the factors that come with being raped. I know I know words aren't my forte but I think if he wanted to make a point that he should have worded it in a better way. over a year ago

John Hawkins, a blogger, said "The first step towards convincing other nations that they can trust us [the US] again would be make this a better world by removing Julian Assange from it"
Ahaha how wrong he is- the worst thing the US could possibly do is to convict (or murder, as suggested) the man that exposed some ugly truths about them. Oh how the international community would love you then- it's like saying "Reveal we're not saintly, and we'll kill you". How very amusing. Posted over a year ago

Another mass shooting in America... and the guns used were bought legally. Posted over a year ago
misanthrope86 commented…
I know this event has stirred up lots of vicious gun-law debate, but the guy legally bought more than 6000 rounds of ammunition without raising an eyebrow. No matter what side of the gun-law debate you fall on, you have to admit that someone should not be able to legally get their hands on that much ammunition. Surely even pro-gun parties have to admit that at the very least gun laws need to be looked at in depth. over a year ago
cassie-1-2-3 commented…
But now go back and apply that same argument to gun bans. Tell someone that there's no correlation between crime rate and gun bans because if it were true, then all the countries with gun bans would have a lower homicide rate than all the countries without. Seeing as how that is not true, what does it prove? over a year ago
blackpanther666 commented…
The New Zealand crime rate is only low because it has a small population... Proportionately, New Zealand has a fairly high rate of crime. I would know... I live in NZ, plus I see the news every day where another gang member has shot a cop, or some innocent person has been hurt. You are right about guns, in NZ, though; we may have fairly high crime rates in general, but gun crimes are quite rare over here. The most deaths from guns in NZ are, funnily enough, from hunting accidents. over a year ago

'Love the sinner, hate the sin...'

I'll give the right one thing. It's not about contraception. But it's not about religious freedom, either.

The mayor has enforced mandatory clean-up operations at Zuccotti park. Officers were instructed to remove squaters from the park, where protesters were residing, today. I hope this does not mean the end of 'Occupy Wall Street.' We need an organized civil disobedient movement now more than ever. We need 'OWS' protesters to be resilient, despite the uptick in resistance from officers. If not for them, who will speak up for US...because our local representatives certainly haven't been doing it.
