Yeah, they're what we call the "indigenous population" that were there hundreds of years ago before being colonised by the Chinese.
... Says the AC!
that sounds like a mathematics phd in the making to me...
Explain to me what exactly the war has to do with defending our country?
The US has only fought one war in the last century that involved defending our country, and that was fighting against the Japanese during WWII because they attacked Pearl Harbor first. The rest of them were pointless wars for politicians personal agendas and the safety of the US and it's citizens was never threatened.
Basic theory of national defence: fight your wars on someone else's soil. Otherwise you'll be fighting them on your soil.
Oh, and your figures are severely skewed because you forgot to take into account the fact that when he's deployed the military covers all of his expenses, so that money is pure profit.
Really? The Army pays for his mortgage while he's away?
To make it a political issue and to use Australia of all places as the example is exactly the wrong way to go about it. We all know that Australia has a completely censored internet with a list of sites people cannot go to because the government does not like the information on these sites.
We can't let this come true! I would miss my paranoid rantings by the ill-informed!
Australia does not have censorship of the 'net. It was trialled, it was scrapped, and the Prime Minister championing it has been axed (more because he's a tool, but anyway).
The only censorship in Australia's 'net is the shit service provision.
The other thing worrying would be forced steps to remove things. I could go with an "ensure you're clean rule", but would be against a "ensure you're running this particular security measure" rule.
I like this until it becomes a "ensure you're running Nortons, as recommended by the Australian Government/your ISP". And no, it doesn't come as part of your connection deal..
Ahhh the Sydney Morning Herald, still shit
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd...is expected to call the election before the end of the year...
Really? Pretty sure the Constitution says we have to have an election by November
But the other guy is going to scrap the NBN!
I want 21-Century Intertubes!!!
Why can't there be a third option!!!
