    "We think it's a disgrace," Mr McCartney said.
    "It's without any real science behind it and without any real discussion."
    "They've got machinery at airports that people can walk through that can tell you what you've had for breakfast."
    "I'm pretty sure they could find the technology that excludes women from having to go through this embarrassment."
    "We think it's an attack on women's rights and an attack on women."

    lol, so this virtue signaling union guy would rather make women walk through full body scanners for their daily dose of radiation :p

    Lefties are not doing so well here in the US in politics lately. Maybe the public is waking up?

    Leftist controlled states/governments don't do so well either it seems lately? Pretty soon you won't be able to buy a lottery ticket in Illinois anymore because they can't pay the winners. What a f'n joke.

    Illinois has some of the toughest gun laws in the US if you didn't know. That's why they have an amazingly low murder/violent crime rate. ;)

    You really can't make this up as the thread title says. Now in the US leftist world there is in-fighting in the LBGT community. In fact, per the attached article, some in that group are claiming what appears to be "gay white privilege" (I made that term up not the article) that excludes minority gays in one way or another. It looks like they are using the race card within the gay community now.

    I don't think "the onion" could make up a better story to show how mentally f' up some of my fellow US citizens are.

    A "rainbow" flag now has black and brown stripes. How many people here have looked up at a rainbow and gone "wow look at that rainbow, its brown and black stripes are so bright!"
    Whats next? A line that starts of one colour but changes half way to represent the sex changers?

    Slightly old but timely info on how the American people were clearly lied to in getting Obummercare passed. Here is the "architect" of the plan being surprisingly truthful about how they were able to pull the wool over "stupid" US voters through deceit, and he is OK with that (the architect of the plan).

    Pretty scary the savior Obummer was part of this act of dishonesty upon the US citizens. I wonder how much the Obummercare failure has added to the US debt?

    Reserve Bank boss Philip Lowe urges workers to push for pay rises
    By Stephen Long, ABC
    Posted on abc.net.au 29/06/2017

    It wasn't quite Karl Marx, but, for a central bank boss, it was heady stuff: The Reserve Bank governor, no less, exhorting workers to demand higher pay rises.

    One could almost imagine Phil Lowe breaking out into a stirring rendition of The Internationale: "Arise ye workers from your slumber, arise ye prisoners of want ..."

    Well, almost.

    [​IMG]

    For decades, calling on the workers to demand wage justice was the last thing you were likely to hear from the boffins who walk the hallowed halls of 65 Martin Place.

    On the contrary, workers and unions were admonished for demanding pay rises; blamed for threatening to fuel inflation, undermine the profit share of national income and ruin the economy.

    How times have changed. Today, the wage-price spiral is dead and gone. The economy is facing what the Reserve Bank governor calls "a crisis of low pay".

    The wage price index, the most reliable indicator of labour costs, is at a record low. The profit share of national income is soaring, while the share going to workers is equal to the lowest level since the Second World War.

    Not strictly correct.

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-27/company-profits-surge-as-wages-fall/8307178

    But anyway, the recent decision to hand workers a 3.3% increase in pay despite declining levels of productivity will only further damage the economy.

    Say's law.

    Good luck to them. 99% of the time M/F doesn't matter on cards and forms.

    I used to see Married/Unmarried on forms (once on an accident form!) Seems marriage influences little these days.

    And why this stupid mess on forms:
    Mr ( )
    Mrs ( ) Miss ( ) Ms ( )
    ?

    Bureaucrats with not enough to do.

    I think faster than I can type on a tablet. Though grammatically not perfect, I'm sure you got my drift.

    P.S I was smoking dads Camel non filters before grade one. Monkey see, monkey do.

    Had to laugh. It's funny in a 7th grade Monty Python kind of way.
    Can you imagine the left's moral outrage if we had made one of these with Obama a few years ago?
