I’ve never been to the U.S but I love music, movies, TV shows and books that come from the U.S and basically like many Australian’s I enjoy US Culture.
One thing I struggle to understand is politics and all the shenanigans that goes on with it.
In Australia, when it comes to elections everyone needs to vote. If you don’t, there is a please explain with a possible fine attached.
In the U.S, voting is not compulsory so what you have is a roll call of celebrities trying to influence peoples votes but in Australia it’s offensive to even ask people who they voted for.
All we see on Aussie TV are the celebrities that support the Democrats and obviously they want Trump out. Read articles and the news sites associated with certain TV channels or owned by certain billionaires and they are all “copy and paste” of the same news story and they have the nerve to put some of it behind paywalls.
In my case one of our regional newspapers website, the “Illawarra Mercury” allows you five free articles a month. I guess they missed the memo. And it’s hard to get good honest news articles that are not financed by advertisers or institutions with an agenda. The only ones I can think of are the articles reporting on crime.
And all Government’s are shit and corrupt when it comes down to it. Our Liberal Government, who currently run the country with ScoMo as PM, reckon a policy that gives our war veterans priority boarding on flights is important and a higher priority than other issues.
Just imagine the policy meeting that would have had to happen for this stupidity.
When brain dead and out of touch politicians meet, you get policies like these. And the Liberals might see it as a win as it doesn’t cost them anything.
The fact that people in the Defence Force who serve have to move from city to city, dragging their families with them is irrelevant.
How about some support for the kids and their schooling?
How about support for the partner?
Imagine trying to build friendships or a career when the army moves you from place to place across the country.
And the rates of people being discharged due to PTSD is growing and nothing is being done about it except giving them priority boarding.
You gotta love our politicians. So lost in their ivory towers and blind to everything else. If you don’t believe me, ask a politician the cost of bread and milk. I bet ya they wouldn’t even know.
And finally check out the number of tweets had on Twitter today.
Seriously 666 for the Republicans.
