Think back to when the electioneering actully started maybe 2 years ago and then think………Obama, Clinton, McCain, Edwards and all and sundry. Between them they have raised millions of dollars in this fight to get to the White House, just imagine all the good that could have been done with that money, money that has been given by rich and famous people who hope for special favours somewhere down the track. TV companies are the main beneficiaries along with the newspapers etc. They should be ashamed of themselves for spending all that dough on themselves and their hangers on. Money they could have been spent on schools, hospitals and the needy. They have the cheek to say they want to eliminate poverty, well that money would have gone along way to solve some of it coming up to christmas for a lot of needy people. Just cements my view, polititians are the scum of this earth.
At last the deed has been done and apologies made for the stolen generation to the indigenous people of Australia. In my opinion it was by and large what most Australians wanted and apart from whatever occurs in the future regarding compensation etc Im sure the nation as a whole is happy with the days proceedings that took place in the nations parliament. Everyone that is except from some of our polititians that showed their quality or lack of it to the nation on television. I find it difficult to understand why they couldnt accept “the apology” when you think of what is happening to Australia as a whole. Australia is now a multicultural country, that goes without saying, laws have been changed and modified to accomodate the many different religions and customs of new migrants that come to these shores. The acceptance of some of the law changes in schools churches and the courts have often created much debate, anger and argument. But at the end of the day Australians have accepted the new changes to their daily lives. SO, in view of the fact that we have accepted those changes and like it or not are prepared to live with them. I ask the question, what right does a person like Wilson Tuckey and any other of his kind find it difficult to accept the fact that this apology to the tradition owners of this country and the terrible mistreatment they endured. The shame of this is that this man has been part of a government that affected our lives over the past eleven and a half years and is now showing by his/their attitudes their hatred of of the true Australian. They are a disgrace to our nation and our parliament and the sooner they go the better. Follow their old leader and get right out of the public arena…………….Just Piss Off
