    End of an Era

    To all my friends and all my foes here on SS... I thank you all for a terrific ride. To all the Moderators; well done on a terrific job. Good luck and good health to all.

    Future party leader

    How about; "we allow them to land, we allow them to be saved" Is that a more politically correct statement for you? To make hard decisions does not mean there is no compassion. All Australians wanted the deaths and the boats to stop - that is one of the main reasons the Libs got in...

    Future party leader

    Yeah; how careless and irresponsible of the Aus Gubb. They would be much safer if they didn't come to our place....a boat is good. "Stay where you are folks; Australia gives knives to little kids." I don't know if you are a parent, but I have 3 kids, and it is a 24 hour job keeping them...

    Future party leader

    So, we can't win with you and folks of your mindset, Perp.. They arrive here uninvited, and if we take them in: 1. We are breaking a law, 2. If we send them back, we are heartless and cruel; sending them to a worse fate in another location, apparently. 3. If we take them in, we are treating...

    I guess we will need to go out to the detention centres and see what the conditions are actually like. From my understanding, they get health care, a bed, food, the kids get some schooling... I did hear though that one (or more?) detainee/s complained about no air con? I'm all for helping...

    Future party leader

    Merely an opinion of the man, based on a different view. I guess some will call him extreme. These are often those who are too soft, and the result of being soft was well over 1000 lives lost and thousands in detention. Sometimes hard decisions about various things need to be made...

    "Scumbag" is pretty harsh. Morrison has achieved one spectacular success - stopped the boats, and saved potentially thousands more lives into the bargain. Whether you vote for him or not; you've gotta give credit where it is due, don't you reckon? Is your view based on your political stance...

    Facing a war

    Ah, yes; but who were they initiated against? From my memory; most if not all their interventions have been against bad guys? I know the whole Saddam Hussein saga has been painted as a scam.."it's all about the oil" and so on, but Saddam was already a very bad dude and had wiped out plenty of...

    Facing a war

    I don't think any Country has a good record for how they've treated their enemies.

    Future party leader

    I like Morrison for a future PM. At the moment Julie B seems to be the poster girl for the position of next Leader though. I like Chris Pyne; He is a regular contributor on Andrew Bolt (hello Sanj) and occasionally on Q&A. He is also often on ABC Radio as well. He takes no shidd, and if you...

    Facing a war

    I think you'll find the main difference is the free world piles up weapons and bases mostly for defense. Dictatorships have historically been run by shocking types who initiate conflicts and try to get rid of any opposition to them. Noone is totally blameless in war, but I'd rather have a...

    There have been Cleaners at schools since I was a kid, and no doubt well before. We all did Yard Duty; no gloves, no picker-uppers etc... Noone got sick or died that I can remember. I think it is a 21st Century, 1st World attitude. Of course; now what will happen is the schools will...

    Lowball offers, questions.

    As a seller, (and I currently am one), I want to sell my house for the best price for me. Standard human behavior - we all want to buy houses for nothing, but sell them for a zillion dollars...and then brag about both scenarios to our mates. As a seller, most folks are emotionally attached...

    Poor first home buyers Sydney

    Now you are just adding a bit of a clutch at straws to try and prove your argument from the statements you have made. You state that Gubb policy is the cause of the lack of affordability, and that NG is one of the problems (if not the main problem according to you) and should be abolished. Now...

    Poor first home buyers Sydney

    They don't need to take on bigger loans. It is a choice to borrow up to your maximum DSR. And, the Banks will have something to say about it anyway. From my understanding, Banks will currently only allow anyone to borrow up to 50% of their gross income for all loans? And from my...

    So what did you sacrifice?

    No, a diamond is still fine - just be bloody sensible and not spend a king's ransom on one. After one year noone looks at them or talks about them any more anyway.

    Poor first home buyers Sydney

    HJ, you continually rant on about the median as the bogey man. I gave you an example of how that can be skewed a couple of posts ago.. Older houses on larger blocks, being bought and then replaced by smaller, new town houses - which are more expensive. And that is happening everywhere I might...

    They should be buying below median. Therein lies the problem with the affordability arguments. Yep. the FHB's always miss the vital point of; existing PPoR owners were once young and poor, and had to work their way up to that next PPoR which is above the median and in the nicer location...

    Saw an article in our local paper today about a complaint made to a School, by a Mother of two girls who are students at that school... The two girls had to do "yard duty" and pick up rubbish (paper mostly, apparently) at lunchtime. The Mother was complaining because the girls were not...
