Yay, the government has finally announced the election, and there is a good chance the Liberals wont get back in power.

Me myself I will be voting for the Greens party in my first federal election. They have the fairer policies. The main policy that has attracted my vote, is their refugee policy, and their other foreign affairs policy. Plus their education policy is more fair for the common person. The Greens party has been growing in popularity over the years and it seems that they will have more of a say in Parliament.

People should look up to the Olympics

During the past fortnight I have heard to many times that they are sick of the Olympics, or other negative comments towards it. Although some of the sports may not interest me a great deal, I still draw inspiration and admiration from the athletes at Athens. Most of the people that I have heard this negative opinion from have been HSC students. This has surprised me because they are so much like our Olympians, both work so over either 2 years or 4 years to achieve a goal. So please look up to these athletesas they have done to much to be looked down upon.

The most eagerly anticipated game of the year - GTA: San Andreas

link to site

I can't wait for this game to come out, I have read many reviews of this game and it sounds awesome. Some really cool new features and I'm so excited that I have pre-ordered it, and I've never done that before

HSC drama practical is finished

Finally after a year of work today I have done my final drama practical exam. To have it all done is extremely relieving, and has taken a massive load off my soldiers. Leading up to my turn to front the examiners I was extremely nervous and past performances have shown my nerves, but not today, I was fine and it all flowed perfectely. I'm still waiting for the realization to hit me that it is over, and I'm cloud 9.

Prime Minister will call the election when it suits him, not Australia

link to article

The Prime Minister isn't going to call an election until the polls swing his way, which is starting to seem a long time away.

It is good to see a swing towards the greens, however.

One rare benifit of the US is their election date is set, and not left for the PM to decide.

Story behind Armstrong's first words when he landed on the moon 35 years ago today

Neil Armstrong's first words when he landed on the moon 35 years ago today were "Good luck, Mrs Smith." When he got back he was interogated as to what they mean, but he refused to say.
The story was then revealed when "Mrs Smith" died.
When Neil was a kid, he lived next door to Mr and Mrs Smith. When Mr Smith asked Mrs Smith for oral sex, Mrs Smith stated "I'll give you head, when the boy next door walks on the moon"

N.B. This story was told in Neil Armstrong's biography

My good friend Mitch McRae has a website,, and he has added a blog to the site. It is well worth a look.

Have the US and the other western powers got their priorities straight?

link to article

The attrocities in Sudan are so clear and yet nothing is being done about it. The UN have asked for help, unlike with Iraq, and the US are barely willing to send a small contingient into the Dafur region. Sorry I must be mistaken because Mr. Bush is only interested in helping (invading) poor countries if they have large oil fields.

Downer has lost it!

link to article

Downer thinks just because he's foreign affairs minister he suddenly becomes an expert in missiles. He's just trying to hype up the exaggerated hysteria. Like the government does with the "war on terror"

Can anybody see the unusual similarity between the current situation and the "Cold war." The hysteria is all over rated and it's just becoming ridiculous, and is worrying for the Muslim population as a stereotype is now unfairly being attached to all Islamic people.

Denmark takes a stand on reinstated death penalty, go Denmark!

link to article

Go Denmark. This is great to see them taking a stand against an inhumane punishment. I can see this government turning bad preety soon. This is a bad sign for Iraq and it's hope of becoming a free democratic state.

Bush: "Don't tax the rich"

link to article

See I told every Bush has lost it, didn't I, no one believed me, now this is proof. First a stupid war against a dictator he created now he thinks you shouldn't tax the rich!

His point is the rich guys evade tax anyway. What so your gonna let 'em win? Just another episode of buying votes I think, like Howard handing out 600 bucks to poor familys.

My dad said, "Thanks for the $600, i'm still not voting for ya"

I'm calling out on all people please vote in a decent government in the next election we don't want a racists, wannabe-yankee government

Go private? Not even if it were free, say loyal parents - National -

Go private? Not even if it were free, say loyal parents - National -

I am a firm believer in the public school system, because as someone stated in this article, public schools teach acceptance of all walks of life.

I think it's unfare to give more funding to private schools based on the fact they teach religion, because school is about education, if all people went to a school based on religion there would be even more division because of religion, then there is now. If there was no religion than half of history's wars would never have taken place

The Cutting edge (TV show on SBS)

I have just discovered this great Current Affairs program, 'The Cutting edge'. Last week it was a story about George Bush, this Tuesday it's going to be about Robert Mugabe. This is great and pulls away from sticking to the racist hardline of the government that the commercial networks seem to follow.

I, Robot

Hey I recently went to the movies with my friends and saw I, Robot. When I think Will Smith, I think Bad Boys II, movies that are full of action with no meaning or purpose. With I, Robot this is totally different with some scenes really posing interesting questions. It still has the action packed stuff, but it is a Will Smith movie with a message. The end message is very good, I don't know whether some will get it but I certainly did, well worth a look.

People have to be messed up in the first place!

I was just watching my one of my favourite shows, Law and Order when they pulled 'Violent Video games make teens kill people' card. God damn this issue really gets me up the wall. A teenager has to be pretty messed up and have homocidal tendencies before hand. I play Grand Theft Auto and all those games, do you see me killing people?
