The Supreme Court has ruled the US Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry in a historic triumph for the American gay rights movement.
As "terrorism" is spreading like an ebola infection in the "extended" Western World, (presently in Tunisia-38 dead, France-one decapitated and Kuwait-27 dead), one has to ask where it's coming from. Because let's face it, according to the press, such as the glorious merde-och press, "Evil Rocks World" and of course IS (ISIS or ISIL) is blamed fair and square. Okay. No argument.
tony abbott is liar, a thief and a fearmonger... whose existence is only due to the murdoch fairy...
In less than two years in office, the Abbott government has added almost $100bn to the level of Commonwealth government debt. This is a 35% increase from the $273bn level of gross government debt at the time of the September 2013 election.

gus apologises for a cartoon about ABC journalists being pressured to apologise and stop doing their job, to satisfy turdy...
The ABC’s managing director, Mark Scott, ordered the flagship current affairs radio program PM not to broadcast an interview the show had recorded with the former terrorism suspect Zaky Mallah after his appearance on Q&A.
If all you care about is making more stuff, capitalism may be the best system ever. But if you want to save the planet from environmental catastrophe our current economic system is a dead end.
I remember in my socialist youth often being told: “Your ideas sound good but that’s just not how things work in real life.”
Already we have the Nazi slogan of ‘Work Will Make You Free’ splattered heavily across our social welfare landscape. ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ … work will make you free.
