Here's where to talk about all the current affairs happening at home and around the world. Instead of a slew of different threads like there seem to be at the moment, i thought it might be better to just have the one thread.

I'll start off with "deep sea drilling and mining exploration"

A lot of country's around the world do it and make millions, recently big oil company's like Anadarko have been given the go ahead to explore a MASSIVE area of New Zealand, also access to conservation land.

I do like the idea of them striking oil and our country becoming wealthy, but will it,or will they? (the guys on top).

Also there's the issue of our country's reputation of being "clean and green" being stained, but more importantly i know that if something happened like in Mexico, we would be DOOOMED! and i don't really want our conservation land mined, it's all we got going for us.

Anyway wouldn't mind hearing the opinions from some of you who also live in beautiful country's, like Norway for instance, places that have beautiful scenery but have gone mad on mining and deep sea drilling....how has it affected the country?


...yeah i know my grammar sux

Hows that Malaysian plane going down...damn!


The guess would be that it somehow entered a zone where planes bomb towns and towns bring the planes down with missiles... it's already tragic enough that people have been dying on land in the country... people for whom this is a war they never wanted... and more people died... victims who had even less to do with this entire conflict... and somewhere not that far away kids are being blasted to chunks on the beach...

What can I say... it breaks my heart... I want to close my eyes and ears and I want to ignore the fact that blind and poisoned people on the internet are blaming people from conveniently chosen nationality and chanting for each other's annihilation... "The RUSSIANS/UKRAINIANS/JEWS did it! NUKE'EM ALREADY!" It looks like some people see terrorists everywhere... someone somewhere sees me as a terrorist... Just because I live in a certain place on earth...

Why do people want people they don't know to die because of what they read on the papers? I met Ukrainians today... I met Russians today... I met Jewish people today... I talked to them... they were all normal people... good and lovely people, each one with their little life and people dear to them... why the hell should I ever want their fellow countrymen to die and suffer because someone has written somewhere or told somewhere that they want to conquer someone or expand their power or annihilate someone... I see people... and I do not hold people responsible for their political leaders' crimes... and no one can say that "but people have elected these leaders"... I haven't personally elected ours and I don't believe it's much different in many other places...

The worst thing I've read in a local comment section was: "Bloody hell! Our neighbours are such dickheads! Let's just have that fucking war already. If need be, we'll bleed but at least we'll have made a statement and earned some respect!"

I don't want to live together in the same country with people like that. I'll be blunt and honest... and I am sure as hell that for someone who holds such views, I am a traitor/terrorist/leftist/anarchist/satanist or whatever he thinks justifies his hatred for me... just because I do not want to hate a group of people or a nation that he has learnt to despise... And that's the point... you don't hate just like that, out of the blue... you hate because you learn to do so or because you are taught to do so. You are taught to see the others as something undesirable and less human. When you're naive enough to buy that, then you know very well what happens... and when people are subject to such "mental treatment" on a massive scale, then there's no wonder things like wars, massacres and genocides happen... if people don't participate in these crimes directly, then they will just let this happen because "it's got to be right... there is no other way... this is what has been said, right?"

I hope people will let love in one day...

Only problem is everything else that we'll wipe out in the process.


The only thing that would bother me if the human race were to be made extinct would be that what could've been if our planet wasn't full of egomaniacal monkeys hell bent on killing each other over pieces of land and justifying murder with some twisted ideology or marketable idea. We could've been like one of those galactic empires venturing out into the universe and colonizing planets and all the other extraterrestrial races would marvel at our great civilzation, our history, arts and culture and learn from us. And we'd learn about their culture and live together in harmony.
But alas, I don't think that is meant to be, looking at the current state of affairs and the tragedy of the human condition.

Same here, I've always felt that governments don't represent its people and I ask myself "who did elect the leaders responsible for these governments?! and then I realize those people I'm taking about are not the majority. Aha, so let's rephrase it "Democratic governments represent the majority of its people." hmm, maybe! and then I remember H. L. Mencken's quote "Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance."

Governments do represent their people.


I don't know... I personally don't really feel represented. But maybe it's because I don't read the newspapers (I do read them but with scepticism)... If you meant that governments represent their people by "protecting" them from the "enemies" they have "created" then, yes... you have a point there...

Today I read some articles about the 100th anniversary of WW1... it's not really discussed in this particular region... mainly because WW2 hit the Baltics in a more direct and devastating manner and had a long and lasting effect on local life.
It was a somewhat amusing read... you see, before and during the First world war, the Baltics were provinces of the Russian Empire, populated by the natives and the Baltic German nobility... The propaganda saw the main enemy in Germans... Germans were evil, local Baltic Germans were potential spies and traitors... the natives had the hard feelings caused by the centuries long German colonisation so you might guess that everyone really bought the "Nothing good to expect from the Germans!" way of thinking...

Fast forward 100 years... it's the same... just replace "Russian Empire" with "NATO/US" and "Germans" with "Russians" and "German colonisation" with "Soviet occupation"... (come to think of it... Germany does not even exist any more because modern Germany is not a world power as it used to be in the 20th century)... there is no collective memory... memory itself seems to be really short because every generation only remembers the most recent bully... everything that occurred before, simply didn't happen (unless it's dug out by the media in order to instil some particular way of thinking in people) "So THEY are blablabla because THEY did blablabla to US!" People stop seeing people behind the collective term coined by the media... in Russian media, Europe is "Gayrope" (you know... everyone's gay here, we all like Conchita Wurst and pink clothes and fuss about LGBT rights) so, according to some, we deserve a good beating... (the fun thing is that Estonians love the Russians thanks to their mutual gay-hate... this is what really unites them)

Fuck the what with people constantly needing someone to hate, accuse, and be afraid of... Fear is an excellent way of keeping masses under control. Just threaten the population with some external or/and internal enemy and they will eat shit from your palm... yes, the governments make people believe and feel that they represent them... I don't support blind and unquestioned chauvinism...

Hows the new dole laws in aus, i hate lazy doll bludgers as much as anyone but they seem a bit harsh...or do they? I'm not sure, like i have a mother in law on the dole because she simply just can't get a job. She trys very very hard, she is a qualified teacher but they just don't seem to want old teachers anymore, the new laws would be terrible for her and way too harsh.
And then there's complete lazy pot smoking bums like my brother in law who i think the new laws would apply for very well

Maybe stop accepting so many migrants - currently they let 200,000 in per annum yet unemployment is stable or growing depending on where you live.


I'm actually hoping to immigrate one day from Bananistan... If you ask why then I ask why you immigrated from Croatia.

I actually want to contribute. I'm actually planning to work hard and get a master's degree so that nobody could say that I'm some random uneducated scumbag who just wants to enjoy some benefits while doing absolutely nothing (like the examples you brought)...

Plus... my grandfather was born there so I feel an obligation... I never blended in here anyway and I know that this is not likely to happen in the future either... every year spent here is making me more and more embittered... the bottom line is... I don't want to start a family here at all... because you won't raise a kid with $600 a month (ok... your wife gets 400-600 so you might be able to pay the rent with her income... )
I am not studying and working to end up in poverty... This is not happening...

Parents emmigrated from Croatia (Yugoslavia) when I was two because they didn't get along with their families. They were actually poorer in Australia than in Yugoslavia because mum decided to be stay at home and then they both decided that being on social welfare was easier than working, even if money was less.



I see... the entire concept of social welfare is a two-edged sword. In places where welfare enables you to make ends meet without work, many people choose the easier path (some actually keep working without contracts) while there are places where there is no social welfare at all and being unemployed means loss of home and starvations (and in places like this, even a paid job barely covers the living expenses... if it does)... I guess I said it once in a thread... there's one thing that makes many Estonian people happy... the poverty here keeps the migrants out (especially the blacks)... they like to make fun of the Finns and Swedes ("Look at'em... because of their socialist welfare system they're already being run over by ragheads and niggahs! Thank god we're doing better than that... I'll rather eat potato peels than have our wives and daughters suck the black cock!")
On the other hand... they say in Finland several clubs and bars have installed signs "No Estonians allowed"...

Eastern European states count cost of sucking American dick over Russia:

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/business/article/putin-s-food-ban-splits-eu-on-wisdom-of-russia-sanctions/505218.html

Tis what happens when you take a pointless morale stand against an opponent that doesn't give a fuck about pointless moral stands. If the Russians turn off the gas in winter, the Europeans are as fucked as a whore in a waterfront brothel when a large ship comes in.


I read that Valio (a major dairy producer in Finland) laid off 800 employees because of the ban... but isn't one human nothing before a good cause? Or several hundred... or maybe a few thousand?

Some Russians were asked what they thought about the food ban and the general answer was that they didn't really care because they've got enough of their own produce to consume (some of which may actually be of better quality)... I'm actually using Russian hygiene products (toothpastes, shampoos, shower gels)... they may be more expensive but they're environment-friendly, made of wild herbs and don't contain fluorine, or SLS or parahydroxybenzoates or any of these things you find in the products of Procter&Gamble, Unilever and the likes... Plus, the particular indigenous peoples of Russia, who grow/gather the source material, benefit from the sales of the products...

On the other hand... an Estonian writer recently shouted that he won't be buying anything that even has some information in Russian on the label... his hate is so profound that he wouldn't even buy a jar of Nutella if had a few lines in Russian on the label (because that would imply the producer is pro-Russian and wants to sell stuff to them... WE NEED TO STOP ALL EXPORT TO THOSE RUSSIANS! SEVER ALL THE TIES!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!)

And a radio personality promised to avoid a major Estonian dairy brand because its CEO expressed his honest opinion about the negative effect of all of those sanctions... (WTF! YOU PRO-RUSSIAN BASTARD! YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR OWN PROFIT! I WON'T BUY YOUR SHIT EVERRR AGAINNN! LIKE EVEERRRRRR!)

Ok... and Obama is visiting... they say it'll be even bigger than during the visit of Bush in 2006... whole city centre was declared a restricted area, streets were closed off, people were denied entry (in case you worked in city centre, you'd had to get there before the purge commenced... I mean... before the procession commenced) and those who were living in downtown, had to keep their windows shut and avoid coming out of their homes or offices... They say it's gonna be even more strict now...
And when Her Majesty visited, everyone went to the streets to greet her and kids were allowed to skip classes to go and meet here on the main square... the Japanese Emperor partied hard with the people at a song event... but if it's the visit of the president of the US, people have to lock themselves in... He's surely visited Australia... has it ever been like that?

Except those moral stands are doing nothing except antagonising the world. And whilst the US deplores Russian support of Ukranian rebels, they were arming and supporting Syrian and Libyan jihadi insurgents up to recently. And now they're bombing those same guys in Iraq.

Russian foreign policy makes sense if you understand Russian strategic imperatives (Hint: it's all about preventing another invasion through "strategic depth"). American/Western foreign policy is confused and ad hoc. It's why the Chinese, Russians and Arabs are making such inroads in terms of influence and the Americans/Europeans are losing control.


So in the end Eastern European will suffer because the Americans and their Anglo-French poodles are itching for a new Cold War. The anti-Russian rhetoric started long before Ukraine - indeed it was as soon as Putin started to get the country together. And the Americans are also going out of their way to antagonise China. Australian poodle is tagging along despite China being one of our main trading partners and having enough range of their nukes to level most major Australian cities.

yeah but if you suck that cock you are going to have to live with those stds, and as you say they have good strategies for taking over the world. Rather just suck americas cock even if it is a bit limp and his asshole smells.

America's STDs are even nastier right now.

For example Australia doesn't catch no STD even if Russia invades Ukraine.

On the other hand we catch a massive STD from America's fucking around in Syria in form of Australian jihadis coming back to Australia and potentially attacking our citizens. The shit in the Asia Pacific means Australia catches AIDS and dies if the whole US-China thing blows up.

If the Yanks occassionally thought about where they put their dick in, then we are better with them. But as it stands, America is a drunken sailor dipping his wick in any old dirty hole without any protection whatsoever.


International affairs is so much more fun if it's talked about in a sexual manner!

not sure about that australian jihad thing, sounds a bit far fetched to me but you have probably looked into it more than me. Australia doesn't catch an std, but what about ukraine? an then what other filthy depraved acts are made next?

Joke of the year:
Today, Egypt urged the U.S. authorities to exercise restraint in dealing with Ferguson demonstrations - echoing language the U.S. used to caution Egypt as it cracked down on Islamist protesters last year.

Both the U.S. and Egypt cannot lecture others on human rights until they sort out their own human rights abuses first!

Because the accused was a homeless beneficiary and they just wouldn't give him any cheese burgers. It's ok though he will be getting regular meals now.

seriously though i'm not entirely sure, though being a homeless beneficiary you could make some guesses

yeah there's a fair amount mainly in auckland but in wellington and christchurch too. In fact i think Christchurch has a lot more now after the earthquake which is where that guy had come from.
Im not sure about the army thing, i guess they could probably join, but i mean if your sick or junkie enough to not even get a job in a factory or something then your not going to have the motivation to go to the army.

I do hear about Christchurch, there are less chinese over there, also the earthquake news I heard too, in 2011 I remember.. Never heard of Wellington, but I hear the name..well Auckland indeed is elegant, some vnese and lots of Chinese over there..

True what you say about the homeless. I think depends on people but I do think some homeless are antisocial, they are junkie themself which furthers worsening social relating which leads to struggle on mingling among social settings or crowds. Some of homeless can't join the army, they can get along with haha.. I had seen some American living most of their life in USA still wants to leave USA for living in different country, they have a life story about themselves which leave them sad memories, so they choose to move to different homeland.. I see the similar thing like mine that how I hate nam and move to some good Western place.. The good thing I see of western society is that: if you alone by yourself you can still live well by yourself, you are free to stand by your wing, you can have traumatic pain, family turmoil, in the end you are safe and able live by yourself, while in third world you always mandatorily forced to follow the crowd which is group of bunch grumpy ditto head, if you have trouble the crowd will bang you and control you for they think that what they think is good for you is true. The different between Free World and slave third part..

Well, yes, but the list of luxury demands from the IOC is a turnoff It would be nice if the olympics could be about the sport and the athletes, instead of being all about the money.
