Yeah. He came here on a boat and everything. But hey now let’s not over simplify this situation to simply “they both came on boats.” His was a fancy boat, not one of those dangerous ones that desperate asylum seekers use because they’d rather risk death by drowning in a vast unforgiving sea than stay where they are due to persecution and war. Tony’s family just decided to move to a different country.
Joe Hockey believes that the fuel excise won’t effect poor people because they don’t own cars.
Other misconceptions about the poor from the Liberal party include: Tony Abbott thinks they have claws and elongated snouts that they use to avoid getting a job… somehow… Scott Morrison believes that poor people are incapable of feeling pain… especially if they’re not from around here. Rupert Murdoch, though not a member of the Liberal party, occasionally calls Tony’s office to tell him that poor people are “quantum locked” and only exist when someone needs to be blamed for the ills of society caused by the rich.
real pressure is when your mum comes in and you have like 1.3 seconds to decide on the least dodgy tab to switch to
The bus driver literally forgot that I’m still here. S’okay in ten minutes or so it leaves again. #cackling #couldstealthisdoe
i’m just going to leave this here
When North Korea has it right and they’re criticizing you, you have a fucking problem.
Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)
It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.
Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.
Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.
And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.
Deaf students say they are receiving an inferior education at provincially run schools, where teachers and principals won’t — or can’t – communicate using sign language.
i don’t call the cops.
there’s nothing they can do for me that i can’t do for myself.
There are alternatives to calling the cops. For example you can file an notarized affidavit with any court that does the exact same thing as filing a police report. Well it does everything except get the cops to investigate. I might file a police report and an affidavit if a firearm or my truck was stolen. These things usually have ways to prove they are mine built right into them. But if someone stole my goddamn crescent wrench it’s almost impossible to prove which wrench is mine . The cops wont put the effort into finding a $100 wrench that they would a registered firearm or automobile.
No matter what is stolen the affidavit is probably more powerful in the event of a problem than the police report. The police report doesn’t get filed into the public record until charges are laid with the court. Police have been known to “forget” to do their job and it’s not a stretch to say the report never got transferred from the cop’s notebook to their recording system. But when you file an affidavit it becomes public record. For the courts or police to lose or improperly file an affidavit is a very serious problem as compared to losing or improperly handling a police report. The police lose or refuse to file reports all the time.
The affidavit is more powerful for many reasons. The most important is that the police rarely have the time to follow up on these things. They need to fill their ticket and arrest quota. Chasing down a wrench that can’t be effectively proven to be the one in question isn’t a priority.
Another benefit is that an affidavit keeps the injury private. When you have a cop file a police report the injury is transferred to the government. It’s now their injury and you willingly surrendered all of your rights to it. For example did you ever notice that all charges laid in court have a monetary value attached to them? The charges might be “petty theft of a wrench valued at $100” and the value of the charges could be set to $500. What’s that $500 about? If the thief is convicted do you ever see the money? Not if you called the cops. You surrendered that right when you brought the cops about it. The crime went from a private injuryto a public one. So not only will the thief be sentenced to way too much time in prison for theft but you don’t get your rightful compensation for the injury. Now the judge gets your compensation added to his retirement fund or something. Is it any wonder why Judges are so rich and that they get considerably richer as they move up the judicial ladder?
Another thing a police report does is subjects a petty thief to inhumane punishment. Why should they go to prison over your stolen wrench when they could just pay you the $500 and return the wrench? What benefit is there to society to subject another human being to those monsters in the “justice” system? Don’t you really just want your wrench back and compensation for the time and money the theft caused you? Is a wrench really worth all that inhumane treatment? Geez man if I get my wrench back and compensation for having to go buy a new wrench in the mean time what more can I really ask for? Is it worth risking the thief being brutalized in prison over?
The police, judges and lawyers all conspire to keep this from you. Either they aren’t allowed to tell you or they hide it because they all aspire to move up in this scam. So by safeguarding the scam for those higher on the ladder they are safeguarding their future as well. If this information was more widely known the whole balance of power could shift. These guys won’t give you the information that could render them obsolete.
