Re: Trump is the Antichrist

I'm disappointed if this proposition is true, I expect more of a genuine proper Christian Anti~Christ. I'm more inclined to see Trumptoad as a dilletante at the Evil Overlord caper, perhaps an enthusiastic acolyte of the genuine proper Christian Anti~Christ, but not, I think, the real deal. Might do...

Re: Webdip rank

I agree with the proposition that WebDiplomacy rankings are more a guide than exact in all cases & there are I would suggest a few players with rankings that are possibly deceptive, eg my good(?) self, who is ranked a Diplomat but as many here know well, I can be a cranky old dummy spitter on occasi...

Re: Australian State/Territory Law reforms, Abortion, Euthenasia, Marijuana & Prostitution

What might be of interest is the general lack of fuss or consternation by the Australian public in response to the various reforms. The euthanasia reforms in Western Australia, the marijuana law reform in the ACT and the proposed prostitution law reforms in SA have not really stirred up significant ...

Re: Australian State/Territory Law reforms, Abortion, Euthenasia, Marijuana & Prostitution

Well Octavious our Oracle fortunately for me I am not an active proponent of any of the Law reforms introduced or proposed so I believe that I am not required to justify any of them. I take an independent position so I can take pot shots at a wider range of targets. I would first distinguish the fou...

Re: Australian State/Territory Law reforms, Abortion, Euthenasia, Marijuana & Prostitution

Before I do, a quick post.. I'm cautious with regard to public disagreements with Octavious our Oracle, but I will suggest that whether an act is one of assault, sexual or of violence depends largely on the question of consent. So a sex worker grants consent to agreed acts in return for payment and ...

Re: Australian State/Territory Law reforms, Abortion, Euthenasia, Marijuana & Prostitution

Well the South Australian flirtation with prostitution law reform is far from a done deal. This time the reform legislation has been introduced by new Attorney General Ms. Wendy Chapman, the Conservatives won Government two years ago after 15 years of opposition. In that time two make attorney gener...

Re: Australian State/Territory Law reforms, Abortion, Euthenasia, Marijuana & Prostitution

New South Wales has had a crack at Abortion law reform, Western Australia chose "Death with Dignity (?)" Law reform, South Australia is flirting with Prostitution law reform, and the Australian Capital Territory has decriminalised marijuana use/possession (probably limited to personal use amount)/gr...

Re: The Unholy Bargain

I should make it clear that the political donations laws in the nation in which I live, Australia are far from ideal and that is not surprisingly something that both major political parties seem to agree on doing very little to change.

Re: Coup d'État in the UK

Yes Octavious our Oracle, the description "one party democracy" is I think a polite euphemism for totalitarian dictatorship. I think wonderful Orathaic is innacurate in equating voting within the Chinese Communist Party to voting in a genuine democracy, if that is what he is doing. Only members of t...

Re: The Unholy Bargain

Further thoughts... Given the current state of politics in the USA, the extreme divisiveness, the refusal to compromise I think it's naive to think that the two opposing groups could ever negotiate fairly and in good faith, there's just not the goodwill, there's way too much emnity and distrust. The...

Re: Coup d'État in the UK

The performance of state run Capitalism in the Chinese example is also a snack in the face for all those acolytes of the notion that Governments cannot be effective business operators, the radical free market philosophers.

Re: Coup d'État in the UK

Agreed, China is no longer a Communist nation, certainly not a form of Communism that Marx and Engel proposed or would recognise. There's an irony in that, the "People's Party" is now the oppressor of the ordinary citizen. The other irony is that the capitalist "Western nations" particularly the USA...

It is. But Octavious our Oracle sent me a PM and that enabled me to find the Michigan gang's PM, so I've replied to both the Magnificent Michigan gang & Octavious as well. So it's all good.

In other Art news, I have had a crack at the Art caper and my second Drawing was selected for an Art exhibition in a proper Art gallery and although marked Not for Sale there have been two modest offers to purchase it.

Well it looks like the unanimous verdict from the Judges in the UK Supreme Court is very clear, Naughty Boris has been dishonest to Queen Elizabeth 2nd & that's a definite problem for him... Off to the Tower of London with the blighter, then off with his head & stick it on a pike ???
