Australian federal election is tomorrow my dudes - am so hyped for what might finally be an end to six years of rubbish governance, climate inaction and the stripping of public services. Might even get modern Internet speeds if Labor wins, isn't that the dream? publicado hace 8 meses

“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 día 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 por a major party, he is very nearly the worst candidate possible” publicado hace más de un año

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 correo electrónico 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 arbusto, bush Jr was! hace más de un año

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. tu won't get trade deals: you're not an empire anymore.

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. publicado hace más de un año
SJF_Penguin2 comentó…
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 más 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 o liberal), and is confused o 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 o she were viable and más conservative than nominee Trump. hace más de un año

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. hace más de un año

As for partisanship dividing the country, well, I'm at the point now where I would just prefer two countries.

Idealism, realism - Or, a mixture of both?

Do tu think it is better to be realistic, idealistic, o have varying principles from both? publicado hace más de un año
Riku114 comentó…
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 tu were a mix of the both, tu could either get the pros o the cons. If tu get the pros it would be great if tu get the cons...... Well do I need to explain? hace más de un año
hetalianstella comentó…
Well idealism gives tu dreams and goals and motivation, and realism gives tu the wisdom and knowledge to achieve them. An equal balance of both I think is más healthy for your mental functioning and working towards succeeding real life goals. Idealism makes life más fun and creative, but too much of it will make tu set too high of standards which will be too unrealistic to accomplish. But realism helps tu better accept a situation as it is and help tu become más prepared for the future. But too much realism makes tu 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. hace más de un año

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.

The American election is not far away...But its apparant that although the US prides itself as a bastión 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... publicado hace más de un año

These are the types who volunteer in sopa kitchens o Habitat for Humanity. Right now, they are the voice of the poor.

However, the US, right-wing as it is, will never put such a system in place- it would be awfully inconvenient for the más conservative parties if the less-educated, less well-off had a say in it too.

Just because tu know political theory, doesn't necessarily mean tu 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. hace más de un año

I heard what Richard Murdoch dicho about a rape baby being God's gift.
When I was 17, I was raped por 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. publicado hace más de un año

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. año of HS and my freshman año of college... I did both at the same time. I won a varsity level swimming meet the día before I had my secret abortion. Four days after that, I awoke with my parents sitting at the foot of my hospital cama 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. hace más de un año

Mr. Murdoch can sit around with his set of penis and testicles all día long talking about the blessings if rape babies...but I know the truth. I know the pain, shame, fear, anger, and near soul destroying guilt that comes when your rapist leaves tu with that last, tiny freedom... The freedom to choose whether he forces a child on you... Even when tu 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 hace más de un año

i believe that God sends blessing in disguises and that sometimes tu 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. hace más de un año

I know this event has stirred up lots of vicious gun-law debate, but the guy legally bought más than 6000 rounds of ammunition without raising an eyebrow.

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 día where another gang member has shot a cop, o some innocent person has been hurt. tu are right about guns, in NZ, though; we may have fairly high crime rates in general, but gun crimes are quite rare over here.
