I've always advocated for marriage for all adults that want it, in any of it's many forms, but I've also always been adverse to

the influence of big business on political decisions. So at first it might seem cool that corporation CEOs are spouting their PC views

on the topic of marriage availability, but no, it's almost as kerniving (sp) and nasty as them throwing 'donations' at the pollies.

 

And Dutton to be the one making a fuss about this is also iffy imo ... but then I guess if his name is in the ring to replace Malcy then

of course it's politics as usual ... nothing to see here.

Last, and always the least to want to talk about, is Qantas CEO Joyce ... what a fucker-of-a-game-player that dude is ;)

Potato head complained we were bullying corporations into same sex marriage support but he ignores these ceos when they do support it.

Joyce has never seemed anything but the slimiest of bastards.  no doubt his motivation is, above all, one of self interest — insofar as it is deemed to benefit his service of his company.  

 

oh well, 'the enemy of my enemy'.  any thorn in the sides of liberal conservatives which is able to frustrate their lame efforts to quash this, is a good one.

 

i dont think intervention in the political process by companies is something we should generally encourage, but meh.


no pung intended

Yeah, properly faulty logic from Potato head.

  1. CEOs only support SSM otherwise people will boycott them.
  2. Boycotts are only effective if a significant proportion of the population support them.
  3. It follows that a majority of people must support SSM in order to pressure CEOs into supporting it.

Not surprising, but it's still a stupid argument.
