Predictive text. Nice try, Gee, but I (and I assume many others with a shred of cogent thought) call bulldust on that one.
"I read the Drum website, New Matilda, Quadrant, Reporters without Borders, International Socialist, the UN and CSIRO websites, overseas newspapers and a hundred others..."
That's a lot of reading. How do you get the time to work, eat, sleep and troll? - Klaus
Sorry haven't time this morning to read all comments. But wanting to add I recently read an article where it suggests that its not necessarily just the people that are not being vaccinated alone that are newly spreading the diseases. But the vaccinations are NOT lasting as long as the companies and doctors say? I will try and find the article and link it later on . In a rush right now. But still Food for thought. - DP
I took the Smile Test and I passed!! This eye cream is amazing. I noticed a reduction in fine lines after three days and the deeper lines were definitely not as deep after a week. Other people started noticing and commenting on the difference after two weeks. The eye cream is rich and smooth and is absorbed quickly. It is scent-free and non-greasy. I will definitely keep using it because looking younger makes me feel younger. Thank you, Clinique and The Hoopla. - Merryl Donn
I agree with at least one or two of the statements (and if you'd seen my cousins, you'd be hoping it wasn't that one). The rest are hilarious. I loved Up The Duff and Kidwrangling. Now I'm just about to buy Girl Stuff for my daughter. What a gift that such a warm, clever and funny person has bothered to create these guides to our various stages of life. - Carolyn
You a past Labor member? That's a good one! So presumably you were once concerned about social justice. You railed against rampant materialism but because you perceive the ABC and its audiences believe in what you presumably once believed in, you want it slashed and burned and its journos tossed out into the streets? Huh? - Kel
Well what's your take on why the ABC PLUS the MSM refuses to investigate the Ashby affair; you know where a federal justice adjudicated that an LNP candidate in concert with Ashby conspired to bring down the government by fraudulently claiming sexual harassment by Slipper. Is this left wing bias? Who gains from non investigation of this issue?
Furthermore why won't any journalist including our truth seeker Alberici, ask Pyne why he lied when asked about his dealings with Ashby. What about when Hockey denied meeting with Brough and Brough denied the number of times he had met Ashby.
Gee this isn't about left or right wing bias, this is about the truth.
Given that Limited News' 70% monopoly is dedicated to bringing down the government how does a citizen learn the truth about any issue confrronting this nation? - Kel
There is an issue with semantics regarding this article and Summers' thesis in general, which is the distinction between COURTESY and RESPECT. The social upheavals of the 1960s up-ended the notion that those in positions of authority were automatically entitled to respect. Whilst someone like Gillard shouldn't be subjected to threats, intimidation etc., few politicians have done more to undermine their own credibility. - Nathan
Well put, and I hope to see your documentary. I hate the idea of vaccinations and believe they can be harmful individually but we are part of a community and as such, we have responsibilities to each other, so my son'a vaccinations are up to date.
The reality is that no one knows what will happen to us or our children, whether we are talking about injury by vaccine, or injury by preventable disease, or running in a marathon where a terrorist is in wait, or getting in a car and being wiped out by a drunk driver. We all do what we can for our kids and we can try and protect them as much as we can - but none of us escape misfortune. I have a friend whose son has shocking tumours and a limited life span. My own son has a platelet disorder which means we have to be constantly vigilant that he doesn't injure himself lest he bleed internally.
Let's do what we can for our own - but let's not harm others in the process. - Alice Smith
What a fabulously challenging topic. Jackdan, very well delivered argument. I'd love to see your research. Publish it!
Sonya, I look forward to tomorrow night's documentary. Thanks for taking (what sounds like) a rational approach. - Misty
