Well said William. Commonsense should rule. No wait Clive Palmer is lacking commonsense ,selfishness comes first with him or is it money.
Scott Morrison and Christian Porter lacked commonsense until they realised just how many West Australians had turned against them in such a short time. Too late for them to try and backtrack now. I don’t think that Mr Porter has got a hope in the next federal election in his Pearce electorate. He will be left in the cold just as he has left us.
Lisa Harvey went against Mark McGowan at one time and said that birders should be open ,she has changed her mind now.
I can see that if this court case goes against WA that Mark McGowan will do his very best to protect us unlike the federal government.02/08/2020 at 11:57 am in reply to: Coon cheese brand to be dumped following ‘racist’ claims #93204
Can Coon be in the same name calling basket as Poms, wogs, slant eyes, slitty eyes, nogs, dago’s ,dings,sheila’s and a few more that at the moment I can’t think of.
Grey nomads and country people in WA have been waving for years. I don’t always look at the oncoming vehicle to which I am waving, it depends on the road.
Have you never waved a thanks to someone who has let you in from a side road onto a busy main road or let you merge.
Have you never waved at the pilot vehicle trying to warn you to get off the road as a wide load comes through. The wave is an acknowledgement that you understand what to do.
The wave can be with your hand still touching the steering wheel. It’s more a movement of fingers and not rudely done.
According to last nights news there are some Karens complaining.28/07/2020 at 12:35 pm in reply to: Coon cheese brand to be dumped following ‘racist’ claims #93182
This I am offended way of thinking compared to years ago when we shrugged off being called names or gave back as good as we got often with a laugh.
Maybe it’s people living in units or houses on tiny blocks with no room for a garden to sit in and enjoy a BBQ or the tipple of their choice with some coon cheese and ritz crackers.
Maybe it’s because those who drive to work get frustrated with the traffic, or those on public transport get frustrated with the crowded buses or trains.
Maybe it’s because the weekends are not spent with family enjoying the outdoors.
Maybe with no gardens there is no weeding or cutting lawns or a chinwag with the neighbour over the fence.
Did these and other things we used to do keep us in a better frame of mind.
I don’t remember our early migrants or our aboriginal Australians creating too much fuss about names of products or names they were called.
So who,what or where did this all start. It seems to have snuck up on us.
I have wandered off the post. Coon cheese was named after the founder and was never meant to offend anyone. It is our own Australians who chose to call a certain race by that name.
Wait for the Karens to be offended and stage a protest march.
Nothing can be changed now so I’m wondering why they were released.
We were told that first the lockdown then social distancing and with paying extra attention to cleanliness that it has kept down the number of flu cases in WA.
Some say that maybe we should social distance during flu season from now on.
Personally I like the extra space around me in the shops
Fish oil lowers blood pressure. You should always ask your Doctor about taking anything bought over the counter, especially if you take prescription drugs.
I know people that swear by fish oil,krill oil and glucosamine capsules to ease their arthritis and I know others who say that none of these do anything.
Years ago I tried magnet therapy on my joints.I felt it helped and always said that even if it were mind over matter I didn’t care if it gave me relief.
My apologies ,I strayed off the Aussie made post.
There are two sites on Facebook.. Australian made and owned food and Australian made. Both interesting but some of it hard to find here in WA.
