Help end this brutal dictatorship

   Thread Started October 4 at 8:33PM

Disturbing pictures, such as the one below, of life in a brutal totalitarian regime have recently surfaced. The embedded image shows people suffering under two decades of having their God-given freedom to possess deadly weapons suppressed:

It's been over 21 years since an Australian citizen has been able to express his dissatisfaction with the government, an ex spouse, or people in general by slaughtering dozens of people. Instead, under their repressive laws, disgruntled psychopaths have been reduced to writing stern letters.

Seven thousand, eight hundred and twenty seven days without a mass shooting. This cannot be allowed to continue!

Wake up, people. It's time.

Don't be so hard on them Mikey. They are afraid to enter shopping malls to buy new clothes, in case they get bludgeoned to death with a rolled up newspaper.

You're right. They must feel naked walking into a clothing store unarmed. I can't imagine. I'd be terrified.....

I'll donate paper and pencils for the disgruntled psychopaths to write better letters.

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, the point is not how much more clever we are in the antipodes, nor is this an anti-American rant. There are plenty of Americans who don't want to be shot, and whom I don't wish to see shot. The point is how ridiculous the "denial of liberties" argument is. Ask anyone who can go about their daily life with relative assurance they're not going to be mowed down by a homicidal maniac whether they feel "oppressed". I shouldn't need to say any of this, but I'm sure there are plenty of Ted Nugents out there who will take offence.

Sorry, Craig, I'm struggling to focus on your main point because I am deeply, deeply offended by the sight of people's knees in the first photo. How dare you post pictures of bare knees! Children use this site you know.

A book by our own Alec Gould.

One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.

"We Really Need To Laugh" shares “memories which will resonate with many readers. Overall a creative presentation of the author’s life given in a rather sing-song poetic story telling style; a pleasant read"
