People do say I look like him but I'm better looking really :)

I did fix the problem when asked - I think what that guy was doing was a nasty bit of work. SJ asked me to help and I was happy to.

I try to post more often but I travel a bit and am not home a lot.

Hope that clears the air.
What about the local Bribie Island person...ALX22?

I personally liked ALX - but I agree - what he did was a :) act on the Forum. Just because he didn't like one or members doesn't mean he should do something like that.

I might add - his main grievances were not against StG ... :)

It wasn't me, a few days beforehand before he left - I replied to his post about adding compost bins, and he laughed.

ALX had an issue with me, I'm not sure why but he mentioned something about lawn grubs and I had a laugh about it, after that he became quite abusive calling me some very rude names so I sent him a PM apologising for any offense but it was to no avail.

I wouldn't worry Southy Southy - he had issues with more than you. BUT - he did some really good work for us - especially on the Queensland side of things.

I'd love him to come back - so long as he didn't then start deleting things ... ;)

The expected cost to deliver Brisbane Metro is $1.244 billion. Council has committed to fund $944 million of the project's capital cost. The Australian Government has provided a $300 million funding commitment to the project

Why? The Mayor is a Lib and the Olympics are happening.

Looks like Pigs might fly.

Look I am going to again praise LABOR.
That inept and socialist cadre that make up the Qld Government have actually done something right
They have approved the "assisted right to DIE" legislation last night....Only issue is it does not come into force until sometime in 2023
They also tightened up their PAROLE laws for people who commit offences involving children
If only they had tightened their BAIL laws some time ago as well but they at least have done something right for once that benefits the people of Qld.

LNP?
finally they saw the light about wasting $billions on french DIESEL powered submarines that were designed to be NUCLEAR in the first place.
That contract enacted by M Turdbull the closet Labor Green 5th columnist had already blown out from $50 odd Billion to $90 Billion and 2050 delivery.

M PAYNE the minister for defence at the time criticised Tony Abbot who pointed out the purchase was a DUD and she said it was very good and we didnt need nuke powered subs
She is now the Foreign Minister and over at the announcement with P DUTTON and this time said the NUKE deal was GOOD for our country
My daughter thought she was good in the Defence portfolio but I tend to think she is a political FEATHER leaning whichever way the wind blows.

NSW under Gladys will not consider "right to die " legislation so their must be religious pressure behind the scenes.

The Greens?
will go apoplectic and Bandt will probably have a fit
They have already wheeled out that old anti nuke campaigner Dr H Caldicott to put her two cents worth in.

Now all we need is a further outbreak of common sense and build some Nuclear power generators.....absolutely NO EMMISSIONS except water vapor.
We could even make a business ( a very profitable one) of recycling spent fuel rods for other countries.

I am talking about judicial law….the real law everyone is expected to live by not the canon law that sometimes people sometimes abide to or preach to others because they dont like their way of life.
we have advanced a lot from the days of a imagined deity setting down controls on peoples lives but those that still adhere to that mantra are still welcome to do so.
that’s freedom of choice at work.

when it comes to things being forced onto us green energy is an example.
Luckily Europe still has hydro, coal and nuke because the wind stopped for a week
people moaned about shortage of power because they are so reliant in an unready tech.

I'm not sure about this idea. I can see it being abused somewhere down the line.

I can see the good points - but also the bad eg - When someone has power of attorney - can they decide ?

I feel life is special - sacrosanct - and as such should not be decided on by humans.

Mind you - I'm against killing unborn babies too.

But you approve of "assisted right to die" and "thou shalt not kill" also applies to our own lives, it's God's law, the real law that sets society's standards. ;)

I never said "I approve" of the act. In fact I am more ambivalent...unless I require to avail myself of that option.
I do however approve of the right for that option to be available to individuals who seek it and thats a good thing.

You need to get off the "gods law" Southy.
We operate as a democracy and part of that democracy is YOUR right to choose...as long as you are prepared to accept the consequences of your choice

we are a judeo-christian country still but religion has and should have bugger all consideration when dealing with politics of the day.
It should always be a matter of enacting laws that people
want
and perform a beneficial service.

What sets societys standards is Ethics...right or wrong and and yes religion has some impact on those but it can also infer that some actions that are proper or legal in this day and age are NOT and that is why they need to step back and be a source of advice or information not the final arbiter.

So many Gods in the world and in Oz all who allegedly speak to their "people" but only through other men and their belief in what was said to them
One God allegedly said "thou shall not kill"
another
God says to stone to death people for all kind of religious affronts or marry off little kids as wives
another
says honour killings or throw in acid in the faces of people is fine.

Luckily for us each state and federally we have such things as Crimes Acts.

Over the years I saw more than a few of Gods representatives here on earth commit abominations against children.

Oh and I did support PELL, Not his religious teachings BUT his right to be innocent until proven guilty through the whole legal process.

I hope this answers your question as to where I stand.
You are welcome to your own views and act on them personally as your choice but there are a lot more people to consider than certain sections of the communities feelings when politicians have to pass laws.....Thats why we vote them in ....to make the hard decisions for us

The devil is always in the detail.
One would think that as a personal choice YOU have to be compus enough to make it not someone else.
Mind you "assisted " dying has been occurring for many years in one form or another.
You have people in terrible pain in a hospice from things like cancer and there pain treatment dosage is "upped" to a point that the body gives out.

I support the availability of pregnancy termination SJ.
A number of reasons for that but basically
I believe a woman should have FULL control of her own body and what is in it.
I have heard all the arguments over why a woman should be forced to carry something to full term that she does not want for many reasons be it rape , marriage breakdown or health etc.
Along with the womans health there is also the health of the foetus.
Seeing a still born or worse yet your baby born without a head is traumatising

Those peddling the "adoption" argument still do not get the fact the woman does not want to be an incubator for someone else nor be reminded of how that pregnancy came to occur and there are homes FULL of kids waiting to be adopted...get one of those if you want one.

again everyone is welcome to their own beliefs and to argue "their case".
Living in a Democracy is certainly better than a socialist state.
