Is George Brandis right ?

05 September 2017 - 06:55 PM

... should those people who've done their time for paedophilia and such be granted passports and the right to travel to other countries with the possibility of inflicting children of other countries with sexual assault ? I know it's a double-barrel loaded question, but he ( Brandis ) is in the poo a bit for it now ...

 

Most of me wants charged, convicted and jailed paedo's to rot in prison till death do them part. But then some countries don't have the same laws as we do.

And well, what's to say a paedo has completed their time and is proven to be doing their utmost to not re-offend? But, I also think we, as the host country of these paedos, have some responsibility to not allow our shit overseas to continue to harm others. Or indeed to give the impression, by allowing them passports and free-ish access to the world's children, that even though it's a crime to fuck kids, it's not a real biggy <<< that thought is what is behind my desire for paedos to rot in jail.


Confessional seal of silence.

" Overall though, Catholics believe the matter goes to the fundamental relationship between the church and the state. And Catholic clergy have a long history of civil disobedience. "...

 

Part of the problem has been the clergy's lack of civic duty or care wrt paedo and othe abuse. If they could put some caveat in their lore that allows a priest the option of speaking out if faced with a person owning up to acts of human abuse then that's be good.


Road Tolls

20 July 2017 - 07:05 AM

Being as I live way up in the sticks and the roads I travel are not nor ever have been tolled, I'm naive about the whole thing.

Up here we're told our car rego keeps rising to pay for our roads and this makes sense although I don't think our roads are as great an example of our ever rising rego payments as perhaps they could or should be. I put this down to expected State Government ineptnes << and isn't that sad that the ineptness is expected.

 

So my question is if car regos are still rising in the States where Tolls are paid, what is the rego money being used for ?

As the title says. Anthony Foster died the other day. Most surely a man who deserves some rest in peace.

6.8c. is not cold enough !

Given shit hits the fan in a big way and we need to source the stored seeds to replenish supplies, only to find they've gone off ... I guess that's us mostly done for ... apart from those wily buggers with their own private stash who also manage to keep a proper check on the health of their own private stash ;)

 

Looks like Norway is not reliably cold enough anymore. A pity the western world has such tricky ties with Russia. Siberia might be bloody helpful me thinks.
