Australia is not America. The culture is less uptight, less politically correct, in some respects, and a bit cheeky.

So, it's no surprise that their print media can be a little loosey-goosey by our standards.

Keep Australia to your self's if you can. If you let your politicians take over and follow the rest of the world. And they follow the woke wave. You will have nothing but decades of civil unrest and mayhem.
And if this future for your son's and daughters and their children in which they will die. All so the family's that run each and every country on this planet and their family's can survive and live in splendor.
Then keep the politician's and their family's in power. Do you not realize, without the people who make up the administration for these people, not one single politician as a person exhibiting their own personality could survive. Stay Strong or let the civilization you and your forefathers built burn in the ashes of Guilt.

When I quit reading paperback books my spelling sentence structure and comprehension skills really took a dump. So I would like to thank you guy's and if I don't die of the "Virus" or a gunshot wound for looking at a person when I go into the local 7/11 for a Sunday paper I would like to say thanks.

Sensational turnaround of German policies regarding military deliveries to the Ukraine - this morning it became know that the German government has agreed to deliver the Ukraine 5000 (in words: five thousand!) - helmets.

You read that right. Helmets.

Rumour says they mull a delivery of ten thousand tooth brushes as well.


I a news from yesterday that is hidden behind a paywall so that could only read the first sentences, some European country has called Germany Putin's trojan horse in Europe. It more and more appears so.


If I were a patriotically feeling man, i would need to feel ashamed. Thank God I am as good as free of patriotic sentiments. Rationality is far more important to me.

Doesn't that turn Urkainian soldiers into sort of offensive weapons that Russia must feel threatened by? I mean - all those grim-looking well-fed strong men eating Maggi bouillon hat conserves their powers that they need to invade Russia?

Could be a violation of export regulations that forbid delivery of offensive weapons into conflict zones. At least the Russian-involved conflict zones. With other such deliveries of "lethal" weapons Germany has less scruples, mysteriously.

It reminds me of a scene from the movie A bridge too far.

Nikolai Schuravlev, vice speaker of the higher chamber of the Russian parliament, said that if Russia gets excluded from SWIFT, it won't get foreign currencies and thus Europe would be completely excluded from getting any more gas, oil and metals from Russia. A complete trading freeze.

Which is no surprise, of course.

In all honesty, that surprises me.

Ukraine’s foreign minister has said Moscow’s buildup of troops near its border is “insufficient for a full-scale offensive”, a day after the embattled country’s president called for calm over the crisis.

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba’s remarks on Wednesday came as Russian and Ukrainian delegations were meeting in Paris for four-way talks, also attended by senior diplomats from France and Germany.
