“Terror is Everywhere” Squeals Stefaniak.

By johnboy - 3 February 2006 31

Fresh from a mauling by Stanhope the Hedgehog, Bill Stefaniak felt the need to put out his own media release warning that terrorists are everywhere and we can only be safe with uniform laws.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
– Benjamin Franklin

Anyway if Bill thinks we need uniform laws, at any cost, then perhaps he should put his money where his mouth is and get out of the ACT’s lawmaking body?

UPDATED: Was the Chief Minister having a bad day yesterday? He’s now put out a media release in response to Big Bill. I fear Our Brave Leader is in danger of blowing a gasket if he maintains the rage at this level.

“Today, for the second day in a row, Mr Stefaniak has publicly and unilaterally passed judgment on the worth of evidence presented to the inquiry, showing utter contempt for his fellow standing-committee members, for the committee process and even for his own role as chairman of the committee,”

”I also ask him to explain why he should not be censured by the Assembly and removed from the chair.”

What’s Your opinion?

Don’t need to worry about region DVD’s there is so many multi region players now and also plenty of software to re flash your DVD on your pc. Or even software that allow you to use your unflashed region drive on any region DVD.

There is an easter egg in that film, during the cliff scene you can see a person dressed in black holding the rope. Or at least IMDB said so, I have to watch it again to confirm it…

OK back to the serious quotes.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”.
Theodore Roosevelt 1910

the nature of any representative democracy and its elected houses is to pass legislation to solve problems.

terrorists = anti-terror legislation.
road deaths = anti-speeding legislation.
droughts = anti-sprinkler legislation.

the provisions of the crimes act would have dealt adequately with the criminals/terrorists involved without impinging upon our ever decreasing personal liberty.

‘It’s been a hard days night, and I’ve been working like a dog.’

John Winston Lennon.

(Not sure what it has to do with this post but there seemed to be lots of quotes flying around)

Maybe, ‘Happiness is a warm gun’ would have been better.

‘Happiness is a warm gun,
Happiness is a warm gun,
When I hold you in my arms,
and I feel my finger on your trigger
I know that no-one can do me no harm
because happiness is a warm gun’

John Ono Lennon.

“First of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt,

All we are doing with this Terror legislation is reteating.
