Rally for Refugees

By uniqueusername 12 November 2009 79

I know that many people have different opinions on this issue but I thought I’d pass this on anyway:

Instead of bringing refugees picked up by an Australian Customs ship to Australia, the Government has tried for four weeks to force them to get off in Indonesia.  Indonesia is not a signatory to the UN Convention and Protocol on Refugees.   Its time Australia met our obligation and processed these people efficiently, rather than spending millions locking them up in various places.

This rally calls for action now to treat these people humanely and expeditiously.

The details are as follows:

5:30pm Friday 13 November 2009
Petrie Plaza, Civic (near the Merry Go Round)

Speakers Include:

Will Mudford, Unions ACT
Amanda Besnan, Greens MLA
And an Australasian Federation of Tamil Associations spokesperson

What’s Your opinion?

It’s no wonder the planet is on a downhill slide as many can’t see the big picture. And why should you? Just go and sit in front of your 7.6Kw aircons, put another tank of juice in your car, have a few more kids, turn on your beer fridge, heck, go and buy a freezer, and then when our dams have all run dry you’ll start blaming someone else.

(I’m not going to give up on you lot!)

And there is my plan for next weekend: drive down the shops, grab some beer to partake in airconditioned comfort and get busy procreating. Top tip!

What about you? What are you up to? A spot of depopulating?

Oh and the second highest was recorded in 1912, third highest was again in 1939…

Just pointing this out.

Thumper 10:40 am 21 Nov 09

just pointing out that the highest temperature recorded in NSW was in 1939. So yes, it’s hot, but it’s not unusual…

You’d have to be a bit thick to do that, wouldn’t you.

He must do the opposite of a sane person, skip our summer season by heading north of the equator.

I think this bloke is nearly as deluded as me. As noted above, if you skip a generation who gives birth to the next generation to follow? They going to fall off trees? Didn’t really think that one through?

and thank Christ again the weather has warmed up!!!

All heart aren’t ya billyboy!

I know I’m looking forward to my grandkids probably within the next decade, and their kids after that. I don’t possibly see how a whole heap of us parents shall ever agree with you (which generation huh?). But.. we don’t have to, thank Christ!

Hardly backtracking my horse loving friend, see post #22. I’m all in favour of letting them in to escape whatever is causing them so much grief. But on the other hand, the meaning of life is not about survival of an individual, it’s about survival of the species. Sadly, us humans are going to be the shortest living dominant animal in Earth’s history.

“The only long term answer is a rapid de-population of all humans on the planet, in all countries, including us. Scientists yesterday stated that the world environment is heading for “a worst case scenario in the very near future”. Stick your head out the window and feel the temp – 37Deg – So please, get real on this issue. Australia is already supporting too big a population.”

Because its never been 37 degrees before in Australia

“HUMANS ARE NOT AN ENDANGERED SPECIES” you know.

As an environmentalist (and not a philanthropist) all of us must realize (sooner or later lets hope) that the world as we know it is in a state of rapid decay brought about by overpopulation by one of the most terrifying, destructive, thoughtless and careless species this planet has ever had the misfortune of hosting – sadly I’m one of the that species, and if you’re reading this so are you.

We shouldn’t be using GMOs to support this growing species with food, or provide housing, or cars, or mobile phones, we should in fact be looking at cutting the human population back to 1 billion, and we could easily do this by the end of one and a half generations. If we don’t tackle this problem head on, then all will be lost.

All these refugees are a problem caused by over population, to put it in simple terms for the naive “humanitarians” out there who are driving the destruction of the only place in the universe we can survive, how about thinking a little bit broader than you do now, ok?

If wanting to save our planet from destruction makes me a xenophobe, well then maybe the term xenophobe needs broadening.

Settle down there pal…

I’m not talking about culling, I’m talking reduction through birth control. Just one generation of humans who don’t breed. Skip one generation out totally and all will be well again. It really is that simple. I notice there’s a comment above that even bags that global warming is happening?????

Your post suggests otherwise. You talk about not letting these refugees into the country and then go on to advocate depopulation, you make no mention of birth control until now.

Seems like back-tracking to me. The good news is that the fire that has been set at the Reichstag has not taken hold and you can probably race over there and put it out.

This form of rapid depopulation is irreversible. If an entire generation does not breed, then there is no breeding stock for the next. The last generation (non breeding) would probably die young due to the lack of carers (replacement labour). Humans would be the most endangered species on the planet after all.

You may be right in that there are too many people on the planet, but I’d rather the human race die out before we start culling each other.

Scientists yesterday stated that the world environment is heading for “a worst case scenario in the very near future”.

When? Tomorrow? Next week? A month maybe? Perhaps a few years?

Ten, twenty, one hundred years?
