Dozens of disillusioned Liberal Party members have approached the Institute of Public Affairs, the free market think tank says, threatening to quit the party because of Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s broken promise on the Racial Discrimination Act.
it’s an absurd week though. it begins with joe hockey shedding the godfather/king of the oompa loompa budget image and re-imagining himself back to the morning tv slot nice joe trying to sell that millstone of a budget that everyone hates (their side, the opposition, everyone now)
then the prime minister, the dishonourable member for warringah one term tony MP announces they’re not going to change the race hate laws because everyone* hates that idea.
*because of this the shadowy figures behind the ruling party the IPA (institute of public affairs) are all huffy because they want the right to offend and think this is some sort of core promise that’s more important than anything so they’re now pissed with the government they effectively got into power.
everybody hates them!
one term tony
YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.
In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it.
Walter S. McAfee is the African American mathematician and physicist who first calculated the speed of the moon. McAfee participated in Project Diana in the 1940s - a U.S. Army program, created to determine whether a high frequency radio signal could penetrate the earth’s outer atmosphere. To test this, scientists wanted to bounce a radar signal off the moon and back to earth. But the moon was a swiftly moving target, impossible to hit without knowing its exact speed. McAfee made the necessary calculations, and on January 10, 1946, the team sent a radar pulse through a special 40-feet square antenna towards the moon. Two and a half seconds later, they received a faint signal, proving that transmissions from earth could cross the vast distances of outer space. Official news of this scientific breakthrough did not include McAfee’s name, nor was there any recognition of the essential role he played. But Americans could not have walked on the moon had it not been for Walter S. McAfee and his calculations.

Don’t shame the girls who sent pictures of themselves half-naked to their significant others as a way to express eroticism which is healthy and natural… give the people hell who think it’s okay to destroy someone’s trust and distribute those images simply for entertainment purposes.
Say it again. I don’t think they got it the first time. Too much truth.
public 2000 - 2008: hey why do you guys always have so many republican guests on?
corporate media: because a republican holds the white house and in fairness we want to accurately represent their views
public 2009 - today: hey why do you guys always have so many republican guests on?
corporate media: because a democrat holds the white house and in fairness we want to accurately represent the views of the opposition party
Ahhh, Liberal Media.
