Just got this from a friend down under. I laughed my butt off, I guess in part because I just finished watching Karl Rove try to explain why his strategies didn't work and of course put the blame somewhere besides his lack of understand the shifting demographics of this country.

"TO THE REPUBLICANS
WHO SAID THEY WILL MOVE
TO AUSTRALIA IF OBAMA WON:

AUSTRALIA HAS UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE,
COMPULSORY VOTING,
NO GUNS, NO DEATH PENALTY,
PRO-CHOICE WHEN IT COMES TO CONTRACEPTION,
OPENLY GAY POLITICIANS AND JUDGES,
EVOLUTION IS TAUGHT IN ALL SCHOOLS,
AND THE FEMALE PRIME MINISTER IS AN UNMARRIED ATHEIST.

BE SURE TO DECLARE YOUR PITCHFORKS
AT TULLAMARINE."

Because no society in the history of mankind has provided more equality of opportunity to so many people.

... and that opportunity is REAL.  See Barrack Obama and Bill Clinton as perfect examples.

A new meaning for the term "cutting your losses":

Mitt Romney's campaign cancels staff credit cards on election night

"When Mitt Romney’s staffers tried to take cabs home after the Republican presidential nominee’s election night concession speech, they discovered a problem. According to NBC, the Romney campaign cancelled staffers’ campaign credit cards in the middle of the night."

I guess there is no grace in losing (at least when TV cameras are turned off).

not that I am pro-Romney, but I am not sure why there were thinking in the first place that they can use "corporate" credit cards to pay for the cabs in question... that actually goes to the feeling of entitlement that is not totally alien from GOP ranks...

I guess you never worked for a company, so the concept of travel expenses must be alien to you. You might want to check IRS Publication 535 for details.

on the contrary I do work for a company (US based, publicly traded here) and we do not pay our non local employees to attend any celebrations neither do we pay our local employees to take cab rides home after such events... being born in a "communist" country I guess my work ethic is a little different  Grin

I think that you need to put the crack pipe away, you can not read for the smoke.  The USA is a Federal Presidential Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.

What vacuum? Taking away supernaturalism doesn't leave a vacuum. But if it did, how about filling it with rationality?


Much easier said than done, Chairman Bill. Some of the greatest scientists and rational thinkers have professed a belief in some sort of God, including Albert Einstein, although Einstein's belief seems to have been more along the lines of Intelligent Design rather than a belief in a personal deity who intervenes in human affairs.

Voltaire was a fairly rational and enlightened sort of guy, wouldn't you agree? Yet one of his most famous sayings is, "If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him."

Be careful now, lest Judgement Day be upon you.  Grin

To add to the list, I think Australia was amongst the first few countries in the world to give women the right to vote and to stand for parliament. With regard to the right to stand for parliament, I believe the state of South Australia actually was the first in the world to give women this right, in 1894, well ahead of the USA.

Most of it was...LOL.  But, the United States is ruled by the Constitution (or is supposed to be), a Democracy is ruled by the majority (the mob rules).  Granted, the USA has been in a steady slide down the path of evolving into a democracy, but it is still a Republic.
