    Happy Invasion Day

    I agree. Federation Day is the logical choice but Jan 1st is already a holiday.

    Does this count as a mondegreen? Apparently one hypothesis on the origin of the H in the exclamation, "Jesus H. Christ" is a mishearing of Jesus's middle name by school children reciting the Lord's prayer. "Our Father, who art in heaven, Harold be thy name... "

    You couldn't find anything about yourself that was minority to give you cred? It's stupid but being Palestinian people take any pro-Jewish opinions. I have seriously, just because the stereotype is for Palestinians to hate Jews.

    So if you minus the aid reduction from the massive increase in Israeli aid, I wonder what we get? But Trump isn't actually doing anything sensical. He wants to bring the troops home, but the talk from the White House is that if they pull out of Syria they would replace US troops with US funded mercenaries. That would cost even more for a probably worse result. He's all rhetoric and no substance. Edit: He also dismantled a perfectly good NNP treaty with Iran and reimposed sanctions for literally no reason other than it was an Obama achievement - risking an actual war with Iran as tensions escalate right now, as we speak. Yeah, the US has been shit for decades, I was responding to your comment wrt to the "current US administration".

    I don't think Trump has enough brains to be "about" anything, but that aside, yeah if they reduced their military involvement as Trump sometimes says they should they would save a mint - it hasn't actually happened though, probably because they'd lose influence in the process and they don't want that either. But nevertheless, they could stop _starting_ pointless wars in the first place. That would help more. And they haven't reduced foreign aid to Israel - that's just hit record numbers.

    Well, they could stop spending billions on shitty wars and propping up other countries. That's help. And second, the sums show they would _make_ money having universal health care. HTF do you think anyone else affords it?

    Yeah I fully agree. It's cheaper to buy a second-hand car that's been reasonably serviced than it is to do up anything these days.

    Happy Invasion Day

    People conflate the date with the day. Australia Day is a day to celebrate Australia. 26th Jan is just a date. The Queen's Birthday celebration isn't even on her birthdate FFS. Changing the date should be no big deal, especially since it wasn't even officially 2th Jan until a decade or two ago. But, just like the officially apology, changing the date will probably end there as a means to improving the lives of the aboriginal people.

    Israel did it.

    To be clear again, I'm not interested in Palestinian statehood (and I disagree with your "assumptions" anyway). I'm merely looking forward to a state that treats all its members equally, which means it won't be a Jewish state either. The name of that state is irrelevant. So no, I don't need any sympathy - yo do, because the evil Israeli state you support so much won't last. It might still be called Israel down the track, but you won't be supporting it apparently, when/if it becomes egalitarian. Doesn't seem to be in your nature. Let's try that ignore function now... Ha, it works. That's awesome. Now I don't have to see bullshit racist "arguments" based entirely on strawmen. Nice.

    Um, in what way is using huge amounts of lube better than the evolved method of lubrication that uses the moving skin as a lubricant? I find lube to be messy, desensitising and interruptive. I much prefer going in au natural and the majority of my partners have pointed out the benefits too. Also, you can overcome the need for a cock ring through concentration and practice. Being fit and well rested helps too. Not that I have much of a sex life these days, but when I did, I'd stay hard all night, including after any particular orgasm.

    Israel did it.

    Meh, Leo has admitted he's (coloquially) racist or bigoted or whatever similar term - and that after calling *me* racist because that's the level of argument he can muster. I'm done. To be clear, *my people* are humanity, and Palestinian Christians come in every flavour, including Zionists who support Israel because they think they can seperate themselves from Muslims, or they don't like Muslims or whatever (and it hasn't worked, Israel continues to oppress Christians just as much as Muslims). I don't need any sympathy, history eventually reaches points of justice, one way or another. I've been saying for a two decades that when Israel in its current form is destroyed, it will be Israel that does it. Peace would be a better way, which is sad that Israelis are wilfully choosing violence, but I don't choose other people's destinies.

    Well blimey, I now know it's "deuce"and not "douche", it refers to the deuce coupe and what a suicide door is. Before my time but I think it might have been nice to be able to buy a car worth a few dollars in high school, and spend your Summer doing it up. No one seems to do that any more.

    This kind of thing is the result of some out of touch manager making a decision based on trends without consulting anyone. You can ignore people now? Fuck that's awesome.

    Israel did it.

    Leo, I'm going to respond to you just this once, and once only, because this deserves not to be hanging in the air. You're racist. You can't comment in any discourse without denigrating Arabs and Palestinians even if mention of them is irrelevant. And you subtly twist words around to argue against strawmen - I think you do this unconsiously because you do it so well. I didn't say Netanyahu "talks to"anti-Semites, I said he actively courts and sucks up to them. Massive difference. But by all means, keep living in your la la land while Israel gets less safe every day because it becomes more evil, every day. Just like every other country that is becoming more evil is also becoming less safe.

I don't believe Netanyahu is an anti-Semite, although it's debatable whether he gives a shit about anyone other than himself, but there's a limit to pragmatism and political expediency. He's entirely given up any sort of moral effort to keep Jews safe, and is aligning himself with whomever happens to be powerful at any given time. Since the far right crazies are on the ascent now, he's entirely up their arses. This is the kind of thing that will backfire. If the far right manages to actually begin running countries, it won't be long before their hatred turns on Israel, and if they don't, he's harmed relationships with centrists or the left. To recap, Netanyahu sucks up to Trump, who is an anti-Semite, or behaves that way, being entirely soft on neoNazis in the US; he sucks up to Austrian neo-Nazis, Hungarian neo-Nazis, Italian neo-Nazis, Philippine neo-Nazis, Polish neo-Nazis, and so on - many of whom are the leaders in their countries. chrisg you're telling me you've had your head in the sand and have noticed none of this?

    Israel did it.

    Netanyahu has made anti-Semitism okay - if it's all right for the PM of Israel to consort with Nazis and suck their dicks, that's going to embolden everyone. Unless Israelis wake up and boot the prick out, Israel is dead in the water long term. The change is already happening but it's not irreversible yet.
  22. Kothos

    Israel did it.

    LOL, it shouldn't be surprising I suppose the people who will blindly support evil just because it's evil. Netanyahu has done more to put Israel at risk of destruction than any other person in history. Maybe Trump is a contender but being a complete idiot one can't say he has any idea what he's doing.
  23. Kothos

    Israel did it.

    The attack was beneficial to Israel, but only because Israel didn't do it. If Israel had carried it out and was found out, it risked the relationship with Israel's biggest and most reliable benefactor. I don't see how they would want to risk spoiling a relationship they had cultivated for decades. Also Netanyahu is a complete arsehole and corrupt in every sphere. He comments whatever is politically or personally expedient. Only difference between the veracity of his comments and those of Trump is that Netanyahu knows what he's doing.

    But you're not important enough to engage with. I mean seriously who GAF what you think? You have fingers, eyes and a brain - find the info yourself and critically analyse it. And if you still come to the same conclusions, please don't breed.
