    Why on earth would we want a Trump. The proof is in the pudding not the ingredients.

    It's whether it's edible, let's wait and see, but I feel there are going to be a lot of disappointed people.

    From what I have read only about 6% of the growth has trickled down to the workers, the bulk is pocketed by Trump's end of town.

    The reason Australia needs a Trump is so
    Japanese customers don't get Australian natural gas for less than an Australian.

    Comprende?

    Gosh, this is so true. And yes, very disappointing.

    Anyone can buy land in the US. Don't have to be a citizen.
    We had a Trump and gave him the heave ho.

    I don't think the ABC has changed, I think we have. the ABC is balanced compared with the right wing media which was involved with the ousting of Malcolm Turnbull.

    Shows like 4 Corners, Foreign Correspondent, Catalyst and 7.30 are still very good for the most part, though they have their moments.

    But things like The Drum and Q and A often get overloaded with pseudo intellectual left wing yuppies. Can be pretty painful.

    Sorry, but I don't agree. Most of the ABC has a left lean, even those who try portray balance. While I am well aware of the far right lean of other media it, the left leaning public Such as the SMH and alike is clear demonstration of the ABC’s leaning. The way they deal with issues between the parties in the indication.
    I obviously don’t agree with the claim of balance in the ABC, but clearly the right wing media played a great part in turning the approval of the smarmy git.

    Was that before or after you gave away your natural gas?

    YOU dearly need Australia First type leadership.
    As do all nations. Themselves first, not Australia I mean ;)

    The natural gas thing has been a progression and our trump's ideological father started it.

    What we need at the moment is SOME leadership, I agree, but with a view that can encompass the world, not just Australia.

    Take care of Australia First :rant:
    and let the world benefit from spin offs and surplus.
    Like your GREEN energy production and farming techniques.
    Think of all those Black African nations that might benefit
    and out doing China for Central Asia. Not as a focus, but as scraps off Australia's economic table.


    BTW MRI's are a spin off of the aerospace industry.
    Gaussian filters developed to clean up images from the Viking Landers on Mars.


    POINT: The global benefits of an Australia First economy are unimaginable.


    While some may worry about the health of pregnant women and young mother's in Papua, New Guinea, I ask how many Australian babies are born with cleft lip and palate?
    Preventable with prenatal Folic Acid supplement.

    ;)





    Watching Quigley Down Under this afternoon
    I forgot how dark you people can be.

    Aust is not isolationist.
    1-minute read.
    Oral-facial clefts are birth defects in which the tissues of the mouth or lip don't form properly during foetal development. About 1 in 800 children born in Australia will have an oral-facial cleft. The majority of children born with an oral-facial cleft have no other birth defects.
    Oral-facial cleft lip and palate | healthdirect
    https://www.healthdirect.gov.au › palate

    I think Aust women take folate to prevent Spina Bifida so cleft palate should be covered.
    The point of non profit organisations is to do good without expecting a profit.

    Crazy, Rich Asians would be a more appropriate title
    but it is from Melbourne

    Mom defends spending $9,000 on son's 1st birthday party

    An Australian mother has defended spending 12,650 Australian dollars (about $9,100) on a lavish first birthday party for her son, saying it was “money well-spent.”


    Jackie Lam’s celebration for her baby boy, Lachlan, was so extravagant that friends and family even compared the day to a wedding.


    And despite admitting the bash was “over the top,” the 31-year-old mom from Melbourne stands by her decision to go all out.

    “Everyone’s perception of what ‘lavish’ is differs,” she told Be, Yahoo’s Australian outlet. “Perhaps my son’s birthday was ‘too much’ for some, yet maybe not to others.” .
    . . :rolleyes:

    I don't think anything can match rich Asians when it comes to vulgar displays of wealth.

    Yes you have to be careful what you give your kids for birthdays, a father in the US gave his son a million dollars for his 21st once.

    Wow with all the issues around this is such a non issue

    Oh I disagree ,a Greek friend spent $20000 on his engagement party. He said that it was not unusual.

    Could you consider the difference between a party for a baby and the celebration of an intended marriage to be different?
    The Greeks do fabulous parties and the weddings!
    They are certainly big extravagant affairs.
