Anyway, I'm not incredibly trusting of this source, but I wouldn't be surprised. It's long been known that Golden Dawn has contacts within the police, for a start.

I must say, I'm not pleased with the source at all. It's taking a clear class issue and replacing it with identity politics. This sort of shit fuels parties like GD and damages class solidarity.

This might be of interest:

"Golden Dawn and similar formations cannot be dealt with by blurred “anti-fascist” formations allied to_ forces of capital which nurture this phenomenon._ It will be substantially and effectively dealt with by the rise of the class organization and struggle. It will be isolated by the organizations of labour and people’s movement; it will be weakened through the activity and strengthening of the People’s Alliance; it will vanish with the overthrow of the capitalist system that reproduces it. There is already some relevant initial experience accumulated in this regard."

I'm not sure how nationalist Greek Australians are, to be honest. I expect it'll be an angsty youth thing. Ironically, it's generally the angsty youth stuff when it comes to immigrants causing trouble in the first place.

Hmm, thats true.
User avatar #37544 to #37542 - oxan (06/26/2013) [-]
And Indigenous Australians, too, while we're at it. Elders are generally quite good people, but the youth have a chip on their shoulder. Seriously disrupts any attempt at reconciliation and progress.

Of course, not all youth. A good friend is Indigenous and, while he admittedly has a poor work ethic, he's in no way a trouble maker. I associate with a number if Indigenous Australians, and they're very pleasant. Of course, I've had my fair share of unpleasant encounters, but they're issues to be worked on.
User avatar #37551 to #37548 - jadewest (06/26/2013) [-]
To be honest, I haven't really had may encounters with Indigenous Australians myself, but the ones I've interacted with have generally been decent people. Ah well, I guess with any group you're gonna get the good and the bad.

Post-natal as in after the baby is born? Yes, that's murder. You have as much right to kill a child as it does to kill you.
User avatar #37510 to #37499 - Shiny (06/26/2013) [-]
Because then it's been born. The point of abortion is to remove the little blob from your body before it becomes a person.

What was the fetus ceases to be a dependent, becoming an independent. The Texas law puts the abortion limit at 20 weeks, at which time the fetus has a 70% of surviving outside the wound. I would call it an independent at that point, although early birth is undesirable.

The libertarians seem divided on this one. Woman lolbergs mumble, "muh body muttafugga," while the fat neckbeard GOP-types drivel on about human rights. Hopefully this will split the latter into more solidified territory.

To expand, killing an independent cannot be disputed as murder.

So, our former PM Kevin Rudd is now running for the leadership position of the Australian Labor Party, our current governing party. If he loses, and PM Julia Gillard remains party leader, the ALP will be destroyed come the election later this year. But if Rudd wins, then the ALP has a real chance at winning this election.

Social democrats. But in less of an extreme way.

Although I've heard that National Labor Students, a student politics faction at USYD, is extreme in the way we hate. From my friend in at USYD: "So basically imagine tumblr identity politics meshed with backstabbing meshed with the most atrocious illogical arguments you've ever seen."

So NLS had a split, resulting in SLS (Sydney Labor Students, I think) forming. By all standards, NLS was bad. Excusing female genital mutilation because of cultural relativism, looking to ban the word 'cut' (as in, 'so and so has been cut from the list') because it's too 'triggering'. Crazy shit, man.

According to my SLS friend, there's even people that assert socialism is a method for straight, white men (because the working class is traditionally straight, white men) to gain 'privilege'.

I just had to share.

I'd comfort you with the fact that Rudd won, but I have a feeling you'd be more content with Gillard and the consequent domination by Abbott in the coming election. It did go viral, so you may or may have not heard, but Gillard slammed Abbott as a misogynist in a pretty decent speech.

Here is a scenario and apparently it is real:

You've been in foreclosure for some time.
Suddenly the police arrive along with several bank officials, serve you a warrant and order you and your family to immediately leave the premises without being able to collect any of your things, including the clothes in your closet and drawers. And you are told that everything will be auctioned off, you will never see your belongings again.

I have heard of the standard one month notice, three day notice and 24 hour notice, but never this and without being given the opportunity to collect your belongings.

What would you do if this happened to you and your family? Is it even legal or is it an abuse of the system?
User avatar #37470 to #37448 - pebar (06/26/2013) [-]
That's outlandish, it's the house they're after. It's total bullshit if the bank has the authority to take your belongings.
User avatar #37549 to #37470 - oxan (06/26/2013) [-]
If I recall correctly, there were cases in which families simply left everything in their house when they were evicted. I think they may have been purchased on credit they couldn't pay back but it's truly heartbreaking.
User avatar #37547 to #37470 - eight (06/26/2013) [-]
Apparently this happened and continues to happen, especially in Florida. I am facing a foreclosure at the moment, have been since like 2009.

How's the housing market in the US nowadays? Is it still shit so the banks can't even sell the houses they evict people from?
User avatar #37555 to #37550 - eight (06/26/2013) [-]
Its different in other states, but here in Florida if you drive down any street, there is going to be a foreclosure sign or a for sale sign in the yards of almost half of the houses.

It would seem, for us, going on 4 years now, that foreclosures have come to a standstill. Some people are getting kicked out quickly, some people are staying in there homes, like us, for years without paying. Although it isn't through lack of trying. BOA won't accept any payment unless it is the full payment of whatever your behind in. They won't work with anyone, they won't refinance. Your options are to declare bankruptcy, short sale(and it never gets sold), or foreclosure.

BOA is caught up in so many lawsuits and criminal charges that I guess they don't have much time to handle real estate and they certainly don't want to sell it when it is only worth 25% of the pre-2008 market value. Our house dropped from 170k to 40k; I think its only still only 45k.

Why do social conservatives exaggerate the scope of political correctness so much?

I go to public school in Northeast Ohio, arguably the more "liberal" part of the state.
We have abstinence based sex education, in high school and middle school health class. Sex ED didn't begin until fifth grade. There was no mention of homosexuality, or condemning of it.

There aren't many religious expressions in the classroom. But it's not like students are forbidden from wearing them. There is a a morning and after school bible club hosted by teachers, attendance is voluntary. There is also a gay-Straight Alliance, yet again attendance is voluntary. It's mentioned in the morning announcements when either of them has an upcoming meeting.

Just because it's not running rampant where you live, doesn't mean it isn't elsewhere.

I live in Delaware. The University of Delaware created a mandatory program that required students to acknowledge that "all whites are racist." It's nothing more than a thought-control policy.

That's not the only article about it.

It really did enact such a policy. Just google search the following line and you'll find several sources.

"University of Delaware" racist

The policy was made by a white guy, university president Patrick Harker. He's as "white guilt" as they come. White guilters are of course very tolerant of racism towards white people and don't consider it lowly at all.

ITT: Predictions for the supreme court gay marriage cases.

I think DOMA will be struct down but Cali's prop 8 will be upheld. Marriage is a topic reserved for the states to decide by the 10th amendment. If the federal government has a say in marriage, which kind to give benefits to, then the federal government is overstepping its authority. Prop 8 was a constitutional amendment and by definition, they cannot be unconstitutional unless they conflict with the federal constitution. If prop 8 somehow manages to get struck down, it would have to be through the 14th amendment and IMO that's a bit of a stretch.

10th amendment = The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Scotus make up: Currently has six male and three female justices. One justice is African American, one is Latino, and two are Italian-Americans; six justices are Roman Catholics, and three are Jewish. 5 appointed by republicans 4 by democrats.
