    how crap is this government ?

    Oh, wasn't implying everyone kept their jobs. I'm not sure what brand new harvesting machines do for berries, but I haven't seen them - still lots of work done by hand, and if there is a machine, it's grading by hand on it.

    What was lost and can't be proven?

    Automated fruit picking just means you move the pickers to somewhere else in the production chain: pickers are able to directly look at the health of the plants as they go and not pick bad fruit for collection but not leave it on the plant to risk disease. Automate that and someone has to go do the checks manually on the plans, and the checks on the picked fruit to make sure comparable grades are being binned properly. Anyway, the next time QLD floods, i guess we can expect the deputy PM to not advocate for farmers up there. I mean, when they have to sell the farms from going bankfrupt, it'll just mean cheap labour for other farms, right.

    I dunno. You want us to side with Australia but are ok for our politicians to not side with our purported aims. I wish people had such low expectations for me when in the workplace.

    I didn't say major upgrade. That's obviously the point of their preview branch - which has been in existence for somewhere around 5 years without much fruit.. Their stable branch hasn't even had point updates. I'm not sure what SMF can do now has much relevance to what was available in 07/08.

    Can you tell our deputy PM to take Australia's side too, Leo? Or at least get him a lesson on why, diplomatically, his kinds of comments don't do well for 'building influence in the Pacific to compete with China's rise'.

    Could the Democrats please wake up ?

    Not quite, aliali: If we can't beat China at a game of patience, why are we meant to be patient and wait for them to just stop being an authoritarian regime as old people die off?

    Most of Invision's work goes towards their e-commerce products in the bundle, I think. Without people posting issues/being able to repro them, tho', hard to say what problems are happening where.

    Do you know what version they're on? SMF, as in the one that hasn't had an update to it's stable branch in almost two years?

    My takeaway from the forum is that our deputy PM was stupid enough to crack a joke about island people worried about the survival of their islands, because hey Australian farmers need cheap labour anyway right.

    So how should they fix the problem? Still trying to work out how to reconcile these two seemingly conflicting notions.

    Investors are spooked by unstable politics? Ah but it was so stable before Trump came in and caused problems with China and HK and Brexit.

    Nah Chris knows better than Trump and Johnson and their public personas. Hes smart, you know.
  17. The only times I've eaten beans from a can, with family, in the US, they were definitely not from Heinz, and they were at least smoked (or had smoke flavour put into the sauce).

    PSA

    JC is is is supposed to be fact? How do you know, if books saying so in agreement isn't enough? If consensus belief doesn't define truth, why does it matter if half the world, give or take, believe in JC? Also, are you aware what begging the question actually is? I have my doubts, if you think Leo was begging the question but you were not.

    Who is going to be turned off voting for Trump by an ad reel of his gaffes, that isn't already going to not vote for him? How many times was Bush Jnr elected, despite struggling to talk on cue?

    Apparently a better understanding of the value of questions than you.

    What a joke

    If they're all surrendering sovereignty, then I guess there is absolutely no issue about state vs federalist rights in play at all. Just like there's no issue at all of a bunch of countries forming the EU and deciding it will be a guiding body on some kinds of legislation. That sounds nothing like giving up sovereignty. Anyway, pretty cool distraction from the issue that was at hand: if there's a problem with people coming in and taking jobs and resources, why it's only some people and not all people. If we want to look at some case studies, I refer to the time the Australian Govt tried to force a bunch of unemployed Australians and people on working holiday visas to compete for the utter lack of accommodation in farming areas so that farms could get labour to havest and sell their produce, and then acted surprised when the utter lack of accommodation and virtual monopoly on the limited resources available meant people couldn't actually afford to get to work in the middle of nowhere.

    You've made it pretty clear you think everyone is stupid compared to you tho', so I'm not sure what that has to do with much at this point.

    What a joke

    Ah yes. Not at all unlike the US, because all States love ceding their rights to the Federal Government.
