Political Morons!
« on: April 18, 2007, 08:47:01 AM »
These are our supposed "leaders". Absolute, grainless, gutless, morons.
"Refugee advocates have expressed outrage at a plan to swap asylum seekers intercepted en route to Australia with those detained while trying to enter the United States, describing the scheme as a "dark and murky" political fix.

Under the new refugee exchange scheme announced by Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews, asylum seekers detained on Nauru would be taken to the US and Cuban refugees held at Guantanamo Bay would be resettled in Australia."

geezz... moronic indeed!

just the relocation cost for getting those folks from one side to the other will easily outweight the cost of precessing them as immigrants... i'm not even talking about the money it takes to keep them detained in the middle of nowhere, feed them and so forth...

They're talking about them like they're chess pieces. What is wrong with our politicians.... honestly.
Courage is not the absense of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

There's no substitute for experience. Apparently 5000 years of it.

Yep, politicians are mad. There is one here who has just decided to compare the Hajib with the Swaztika, and thus Islam with German National Socialism....
I wonder if he just woke up one day and decided to commit professional suicide.

So, if I want to get to go and live in the good ol' USA, I hop on a leaky boat in southern Asia and head for Australia.

Reminds me of a splash scene in "Johnny Dangerously" where the Mafia boss Tony Moroni is reported in the newspapers as "Being deported to Sweden" with a subtitle "Claims he isn't even from there"

Well, it works better in the movie.
Just another roadkill on the information superhighway.
