The Rise of Australia as a Superpower?

20 10 2012
Wouldn’t it be strange if during the next election Romney wins, and the US slowly recedes back into a less scientific country.

Where there’s less research, less education, more bible study in schools, no understanding of climate change, no acceptance of gays, more oil and gas mining, being more suspicious of the internet and it’s users.

And people who based their livelihoods on science and progress, moved to Australia, where there are more initiatives to power our country with renewables, for which we need smart people to drive those ideas.

Could it be possible that in time, we become a technological superpower, while the US sinks back into God, Oil, A Womans place is in the home, putting Gays in jail, something akin to the 1950s?
I’ve been wondering about this for some time.

Welcome to the Dark Ages, Part II.

11 10 2012

I saw this guy today.

He’s apparently the Science and Technology adviser to the Republican Party.

Apparently “Evolution is a lie from the pit of hell”

Are you voting Republican this year?

If they win, I’m going to be so very glad I live in Australia, but I will be very sad to think that a smart, tech savvy nation has sunk back into the dark ages.

Do you really want guys like this in power?

Why is an Australian so concerned about the US Elections?

5 10 2012

StoreThe guy following me on twitter asked me why I was so concerned about the US Elections, Why would it matter to an Australian?

Well, There’s a lot of reasons.

I’m concerned about the welfare of my friends who live there, I hope that they have access to good healthcare when they need it, and that they have access to Government assistance so they can keep their homes going in difficult times.

The tide is turning for Gay people as it has for black people and women, there may come a time soon where marriage equality is standard practice for everyone.

There are some who would give no rights to gay people, and hope they go to church more often, to “pray the gay away”, they want to pull us all back to the dark ages, while I would rather step proudly into the future.

That said, I don’t think we’re as helpful to minorities and women as we ought to be, equality for all is the only way, and any future leader should embrace this.

No government should come between who we love and our bodily functions.

I want someone who sees science as a wonderful thing which we can use to build a better world, and I’d rather there was more atheism in the mix, it’s time that religion was let go as a relic of the past. A leader who embraces these concepts would be well worth having.

Someone who sees Climate Change as a serious threat, and takes up arms against it, rather than against some foreign land, is definitely in our best interests.

Someone who understands that this is the only planet we have, is interested in keeping it clean and healthy, and someone who can guide businesses and individuals to do their bit in this regard, would be more than welcome.

I want to see a leader who talks with world leaders and really understands how the world and it’s people function, rather than start pointless and possibly illegal wars, Men should be home with their families, not in some far flung land, killing people they’ve never met, don’t you agree?

As an Internet user, I would also like to see Governments keep their hands off our Internet, the Internet should be a human right, it should never be weighted down under censorship, and it should never be blocked from anyone.

And I would really like to see our Prime Minister talking with someone who is sensible, someone who will honestly try to make things better, not only in the US, but around the World too.

Does that answer your question.

Wolfie!





Political enigma

21 09 2012

There are two groups of people who I don’t understand, Women and Gays who vote Republican, and I think this equally applies to the Australian LNP.

I find the treatment of Women by both parties utterly appalling, as no government anywhere should have any power to tell a Woman what she should do with her own body, That is something which should remain completely up to her.

And Gay people, especially those who might want to marry at some stage. Denied all rights from the conservatives, who most likely hope they’ll go to church more often and “Pray away the Gay” rather than stand up for their own personal feelings, which are not doing any harm to anyone.

When I see either of these groups voting Republican, it’s rather like coming across someone banging their heads against a brick wall and complaining that it hurts.

Stop doing it?

Wolfie!





A Good Christian

6 09 2012

Something came up on twitter about good christians, that is an oxymoron in my book.

Centuries ago, the religious would have burnt people like myself at the stake for saying God doesn’t exist, and I reckon they’d still try it on if it was legal… people are still killed and tortured for more progressive thoughts in some other countries even today.

As it is, they’re still trying to stop gay people from having a reasonable life, medical advances such as Stem Cell technology which may stop diseases such as cancer and parkinsons, and interfering in things which they have no business in holding back.

These are quite often the very same lot who deny climate change, but are perfectly happy thinking that burning bushes can talk, snakes can pervert women and a bloke can build a boat which holds over four million animals.

There is no “Good Christian”
