You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It was the Australian gun ban that got me to join the NRA. The video clips of Australian gun owners lamenting their loss was moving.

Canada is scrapping their long gun registry, billions of dollars to register and push it through, and now they will no longer have the data for all the legitimate gun owners. I guess they can just look at the list of citizens whom didn't register to know who the real problems really are, or could be.

It isn't actually that we are having our civil liberties violated over here, it isn't that we are being controlled and denied freedom by our government.........we basically petitioned our government to make sure that to own a gun here is damn hard if not impossible and by enlarge we are all kinda down with that....your average Joe doesn't want one and isn't interested.

Now I'm not saying this to inflame, or suggest that America's 2nd amendment is wrong, heaven forbid, I am just saying isn't it kinda interesting how cultural differences and very different perspectives change an issue??
I really cannot find a better definition of apathy.

and once the average Joe doesn't care, it gets easier and easier

AUSTRALIA will join China in implementing mandatory censoring of the internet under plans put forward by the Federal Government.......The plan was first created as a way to combat child pornography and adult content, but could be extended to include controversial websites on euthanasia or anorexia.
Mandatory censorship on web | Herald Sun

wonder if the average Joe would care if the right to protest was taken away?

There is an autistic lady who does consultations for slaughter houses to design the assembly line from the cow's perspective so the cows don't get all upset as they move down the line to their demise. Wonder if she if she does any consulting work for governments?

Posting ones thoughts is a very poor method of communicating.

To this average Joe, your comments are condescending and patronising. Are you asking for a response from the other side of the PAcific?

Do you feel we can comment on your way of life in a similar vein?

We have news bulletins which start
'Only in America...' and always are about the basic idiocy of your nation and its dumbing down of the population; or its incredible hypocrisy. Should we be so ignorant to judge you based on that? We or my circle dont!

You can do what you want in your backyard, shoot up coke, shoot up people who piss you off, after all, it's your god given right (so why punish the 'perp'?).

I dont care as long as you stop shoving it down my throat.

Yeah mate. We've talked in the past - stop bagging Ozzies when the thread is about carrying weapons on a yacht. I am off now - lets PM if we are going to have a stand up arguement.
