Australian IT Price Hike Inquiry Kicks Off: Submissions Wanted

Frogbert Re:Complaining about proprietary software prices.. (70 comments)

Is as useful as tits on a bull.

No It's not

Companies can charge whatever they damn well want for their software.

Sure, but they shouldn't be allowed to stop you importing it from another region.

Who is anybody to tell them different?

Another example:
People also get confused with chants like "Death to America" which isn't as extreme as it sounds once translated. For example a Persian stuck in heavy traffic is often heard to say "Death to Traffic".

I've read through the document you attempted to link to and I don't know why I should trust this "Ellen Leschek, M.D. NIH/NIDDK/DDEMD"

I mean what makes her such an expert? I want to see some credentials!

AU Government Censors Document On Planned Web Snooping

Frogbert Re:The ASP (169 comments)

There are two major parties in Australia, the Labor party and a coalition between the Liberal Party and the National Party.

Both are pretty much the same, Labor is perhaps centre left, and the other two are Centre Right. Though in American terms they would all probably be classed as far left.

The balance of power at the moment is pretty much 45% Labor, 45% Coalition, 10% smaller parties.

The smaller parties are Independants (Generally Centre Right), Greens (Left wing), and the Family First party (Ultra right wing).

Essentially for any government to get anything done they need to get the Family First party onboard, and in general, Christian votes. The Family First party is pretty much a church group, all their candidates are former Pastors etc.

So basically:
- Christians (in South Australia) hold the swing vote.
- Most Australians think this shit is bullshit.
- Our opinion doesn't count.
