Australia's unofficial response...

To The Republicans...

They got burned last time with saying they were going to Canada so this time they picked an even dumber location, amazing derpitude.

Wingnuts have a real problem when they say they're going to leave. I mean, moonbats can pick any spot in more-or-less-Western Europe, and it's going to be, you know, socialist and stuff, so way cool.

For the wingnuts, the world is harder. There's the places that are far more socialist and nanny-statish than we will ever be. They don't wanna go there. Then there is the Third World. They kind of want to go there, but only if they had enough money to live on a gated estate, and that's kind of hard for most of them. And then there are places that just aren't healthy places for an American to be, and so culturally distant that they have no chance of managing there.

Like this girl, they do want to go there. It's just that they're so damn dumb that they don't know those places are far more "everything" they hate about the US than the US is.

Look at the pompous blowhard Rush Limbaugh, who said he'd leave the country if the ACA was still in place in five years. At where did Limbaugh say he'd go? Costa Rica, a country that has a full-blown single payer national health system.

Well, that's the Third World fantasy. He never intended to assimilate, or learn the language, or do any of the shit his ilk think immigrants to the US must do. He planned to live in a big house, insulated from everything by his money, so what Costa Ricans had was irrelevant, the point was the fantasy that he was being protected from having to pay a penny of his money for anything he didn't choose to. Wouldn't have worked, since I assume Costa Rica also has taxes. But it's a fantasy. One Limbaugh would never really go through with, but he could. Most wingnuts are struggling-middle-class like the rest of us, and couldn't possibly.

Rush likes to visit places where there is sex tourism it seems.......

She's the one I thought of too.

Surely this was a case of trolling. At least, I hope it was.

If she is planning to migrate to Australia, it's only fair to warn her about the dangers posed by hoop snakes and drop bears.

Not a troll, and she was by no means alone...here are 37 others...

What I am really curious about, and maybe someone can help me out, why Australia? Is there some misinformation about Australia being a backward, gun toting, no tolerance for socialized health care, extreme fundamentalist Christian Nation?

We're glad to see Mayor Annise Parker finally stand up and propose a human rights commission that will provide local due process for victims of public discrimination. Parker told the Chronicle editorial board that she plans to release a formal version of her proposal within the next few weeks, but sometimes the process is just as important as the result.

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

 Frank says:

Throwing objects such as this are capable of damaging expensive musical equipment and musicians. Any more of this and there will be no more music. -- FZ, Autumn 1981 at Northrup auditorium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. After someone threw a plunger on stage about two-thirds of the way through the show, he stopped the band with a wave of his hand speaking in the general direction that the dangerous object was thrown, while holding it in his hand. This did not prove to be an amusing act and Franks mood hardened. - It was, however, an evening of excellent, serious musicianship around the release of 'Shut up and play your guitar'
