Same-sex postal survey is a go

Recommended Posts

Same can be said about the $120mill the govt spent on the postal vote, and given that it's non binding makes the whole thing a farce.

 

Would have been nice if it was to be a final decision so it doesn't have to be dragged on for however much longer. Otherwise it's a huge bill for no outcome that could've been spent on something much more useful.

Which is what I've thought from the very beginning of this farce ;) ... but of late have been inclined to think that perhaps it's not so bad when you consider the potential votes that could be posted, votes made freely by individuals without intimidation or too much coercion ... << that last is still debatable .

I still can't let go of the fact that it was bloody Howards interfering where he felt no need to involve us the voters, that has put us in this stupid debacle now.

75% of the former pm electorate supportive ssm. I doubt he will take notice of that.

Hopefully they will appoint someone to be the head of a committee to investigate these questions.

It should just be a simple thing now. If ss couples want to marry they can. Getting married is a business today . Even in a religious setting it is a business, as money passes hands for the deed.

Employees don't have the right to deny a service that their employer legally provides, if the employee is not happy about that they need to change jobs. Employers do have a right to choose their legal business practices. << with that legality made, an employee is not breaking the law by conducting a religious ssm ceremony; but that employee may find himself out of a job if choosing to perform ss ceremony. << that is also a legal occurrence. that's life.

Just the other day a new arrival to town went missing. Bits of her were found by a water way known to be a croc haven. So with that in mind, it's a no wonder Bob was having issues with priorities. Perhaps if Colbert came to visit here we could show him where the woman's remains were found.

 

edit: the trouble with listing animals as endangered species is we don't seem to have the where-with-all to cope with unlisting a species with a modicum of balance. Some people feel humans should live and let live with all other living things,A cool thought. Meanwhile, other people, for one reason or another, do not give enough attention to warning signs. The woman I refer to apparently had moments of dementia ( early stages ) ...
