TRUST ME IT WILL GET BETTER SOMEDAY!!
Australia will be going to the polls this Saturday, 2 July. There are two major parties in Australia, the Labor Party and the Liberal/Nationals (Coalition) Party. One of the “funniest” things I have read so far is the Labor Party acknowledging they will run the country in the red the first few years BUT it will come good in the future. A family or company couldn’t operate this way but there again we aren’t talking about someone who is accountable for their budget; are we?
“A Labor government would leave the federal budget $16.4 billion worse off if it wins the July 2 election, but maintains it would match the Coalition and return to surplus by 2020-21.”
“In the near term, Labor would have a $39.5 billion deficit in 2016-17 compared to the $37.1 billion predicted by Treasury and the Department of Finance in the pre-election economic and fiscal outlook.
By 2019-20 the deficit will be $11.3 billion, compared to $5.9 billion under the coalition.
Labor will also use almost $3 billion from the Coalition’s superannuation changes, without committing to adopting the policy.
Mr Bowen said Labor would deliver $10.5 billion in savings over the next decade, bringing its total budget improvements to more than $130 billion.” http://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2016/06/26/labor-election-costings/?utm_source=Responsys&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20160627_TND
Oh, by the way, I have a bridge for sale in San Francisco.
“There is now a Republican-led effort for the Senate to confirm President Obama’s nomination of Carla Hayden to be the librarian of Congress. Her confirmation hearing proceeded without any serious review of her record, her views, or her qualifications.
The American people should be asking why any senator would be anxious to confirm a nominee who is not only unqualified, but whom The Nation magazine celebrated as a “radical librarian” who champions unrestricted access to pornography in public libraries.” https://pjmedia.com/blog/obama-wants-radical-who-fought-for-porn-in-public-libraries-to-run-library-of-congress/
This pdf is the speech a retired United States Airman was going to give at a retirement ceremony. Before he could even begin it resulted in his being bodily removed from the ceremony. All because God is mentioned in the speech! Welcome to Obama’s America!
No wonder the mental health of young people is so fragile. The politicians and teachers are pushing this issue of gender identity so much that if it continues who knows what the future generation of young people will be like!? This gender identity issue is at the forefront of the homosexual’s agenda and it is being pushed right into the classroom via the so-called Safe Schools Program.
At the Safe Schools web site a teacher may read “Making your classroom safe and inclusive for LGBTI students: three top tips!”
Here there are ” three recommended tips for teachers to use in their classrooms to make them more inclusive for same sex attracted, gender diverse and intersex young people.” Are you ready? Here are the 3 tips.
1 Challenge all homophobic or transphobic language and behaviours
For instance “Transphobic language, such as ‘he-she’ and ‘tranny’ should be addressed as inappropriate immediately. Transphobic behaviour can also involve questioning someone’s gender identity. Asking someone if they are a girl or a boy or claiming that they are not a girl or a boy can be deeply distressing for someone who is gender diverse or not conforming to gender stereotypes. Providing an explanation that a person’s gender identity is defined by them and that it isn’t respectful to question someone’s gender identity would be an appropriate response.” Does gender have anything to do with the body’s plumbing? It is hard today sometimes to tell if a person is a boy or girl by the way they dress but that doesn’t mean they are not one or the other!
2 Give positive examples of sexual diversity, gender diversity and physical diversity
For example “A maths problem that poses David and his boyfriend Tuan ordering three pizzas that need to be evenly sliced to feed them and their six friends for example, demonstrates the way some less heteronormative thinking can result in some inclusive examples. Even if a problem like this raises questions from the class about sexuality, students can be told that some boys have boyfriends and that’s okay and then redirected to answer the question in a casual way that normalises the inclusive content.” HETRONORMATIVE THINKING! How many times have you ordered pizza thinking it had anything to with gender identity? These people are certainly thinking outside the box! Way outside!!!
Also “Economics classes could investigate the impact of the Sydney Mardi Gras on the local economy. There are an increasing number of English texts with characters that have diverse sexual and gender identities and there is a vast array of relevant media issues that can be studied. The list goes on and on and is only limited by the teacher’s ingenuity when making connections with national learning standards!”
3 Take the pressure off gender
For example “Getting students to line up in girls and boys lines and dividing project groups along gender lines are just two examples of unnecessary gendering that can cause significant distress to gender diverse students who don’t experience their gender as either male or female or who are not supported to be with the group that aligns with their gender identity.” More of this gender identity non-sense may be read at http://www.safeschoolscoalition.org.au/making-your-classroom-safe-and-inclusive-for-lgbti-students-three-top-tips-1
Hey, I know, I am an old fuddy duddy but all this gender identity issue (non-sense) is simply building a psychiatrist’s patient list! If this questioning of one’s gender continues who knows what a person might be able to identify as! Already there is the “non-binary” identity. The list is gathering so many letters an A4 page will not be able to contain it. Simply put, this whole issue is anti-God. God clearly says in both Testaments that we are either born a male or a female! This is not hate speech but simply the truth. Look at your body’s plumbing and that is what you are no matter what your thoughts may be or what someone is telling you! Going down this road of questioning one’s gender is going to lead to more mental and emotional problems. Is it too late to save these young people who are being exposed to this non-sense? No, there is always hope for there is a God Who said He “…so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Turncoat and Shorty
“Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has linked the planned plebiscite on same-sex marriage to the Orlando massacre and the murder of British MP Jo Cox, suggesting the campaign could ‘give haters the chance to come out from under the rock’.”
The present Prime Minister is much the same as Shorten when it comes to this issue but falls short of calling those who oppose so-called same-sex marriage as “haters”. http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/federal-election-2016/leaders-debate-bill-shorten-raises-spectre-of-orlando-shootings-jo-cox-murder-in-debate-on-samesex-marriage-plebiscite-20160617-gpm37f.html
The simple fact is neither party is worthy of leading the country.
