Trump is crazily trying to execute 5 inmates on death row prior Biden's inauguration. https://www.9news.com.au/world/us-set-to-execute-1st-of-5-inmates-before-biden-inauguration/8a30a538-9b09-4bfc-aef0-4091de9ec13e The last outgoing US "lame duck" president who asked for executions was Gr...

As some point you have to sit back and just laugh at the Trumpster's incessant ability to self-promote. Trying for herd immunity only makes sense if you don't have a vaccine. I know people think Trump's causing his followers to ignore Covid guidelines. I'm inclined to believe those people would like...

It'll be interesting. My original prediction was that Trump's influence would be greatly diminished by his defeat in the election and becoming just the 4th president in the last 100 years to lose a second election after winning the first. The cult of personality doesn't seem to have lost any steam, ...

I can't speak for Australia, but in the U.S. the ratio of self described Democrats to self described Republicans is 4:1. In the country as a whole the same ratio is 1.1:1. Fairly obvious the media has a Democrat (leftward) tilt relative to the country. Why do republicans hide their political affili...

Based on what I have heard, not one conservative is employed on their news team. If true, how can there *not* be left-wing bias in hiring? 8) Maybe we could read that information a couple different ways. Those who look to be hired by the ABC are not conservative, not being paid more by rich private...

From a far-right perspective of course the media appears to have a left-leaning bias. From a far-left perspective the media appears to have a centre-right bias. I think the media's leaning relative to the country is the best way to describe its bias. I can't speak for Australia, but in the U.S. the...

I still think the Sweden approach was the most reasonable. Other countries bet big that they could keep things contained until a vaccine arrived. For now that gamble appears to have paid off. It very easily could not have. People who evaluate decisions based on how they panned out, rather than their...

The Jedi protect the Galaxy and guard it from the evil sith! Although the mandalorian faith is pretty appealing. I might be tempted to remove my helmet to swoon the ladies every now and again. What do you think Jedi or no? It is recognized if I'm correct in saying and the Jedi of this Galaxy have n...

And here I thought his 3 appointed judges were supposed to steal the election for him!

Or maybe they're justices that rule on the law.

All these companies going "woke" is a reflection of the hip wealthy cohort thinking that way. That is just delusional. The elites decide what they want, and then they manufacture consent - not the other way round. If some companies are responding to the "woke" opinions of young ...

Government money is not like a gift from grandma, and once you have it you can do whatever you want with it. Businesses with government involvement are NOT free to do as they please. Side note - a tax break isn't money from the government - it's relief from otherwise owed taxes relating to assets a...

I think comparing religions on violence is not a useful exercise. Of the five major religions you can find peaceful and violent adherents to each. Smaller religions or subsects of the major religions might be exclusively violent or peaceful, but I'll posit no such religion will ever rise to prominen...

This is why conservative bias is in infected into every other news source that would rather scapegoat than look at actual problems, care about the truly disenfranchised, and take a hard look at certain things that might require rethinking things we are proud of. Might be different in Australia, in ...
