Yeah, and I'm pointing out the pot called the kettle black.

Common misunderstanding is confusing Social Services with Socialism. The US is far from Socialism(far left) not even the Dems are close.

The Democrats want to install social services such as Medicare, invest in infrastructure and I think paid parental leave, for example. We have these in OZ and we are not a Socialist country.

Repco Supercars Championship / Re: 2021 stats

Is there a manufacturers championship this year?
Yes, for the manufacturer that achieves the most race wins.

I personally would like to see a change to the manufacturers' championship. In MotoGP, it is based on the best result for each manufacturer at each race. I think it would make it more interesting, especially if the best two or three cars for each manufacturer in each race were used.

Speedcafe catching the wind now too:

Morris? Adderton? What was the rumour recently too - the Quinn's?

Don't see the teams buying it, they're struggling to fork out the money for a GenIII car, they wouldn't be able to split $30mil (assuming tha's best case).

Not ALL teams are struggling for money and Morris, Adderton, Taylor and Quinn seem to have heaps for a start.


Just because they have "heaps" doesn't mean they should buy it...

I was not suggesting that they should LG. i was responding to skaifeman's suggestion that the teams are struggling financially (not verbatim).

Most of the Supercar teams have owners or part owners who have the financial ability to spend $30M to $49M, but would they really want to.

Regardless, the new Gen 3 would cost less than  $2M for a 2 car entry plus spares, maybe even a spare car. There are only 3 teams that appear to be stretched, BJR, MSR and TS, but appearances aren't always accurate. The last 2 have wealthy part owners, as do all the other teams.

From looking from the outside the US has no left. Even Democrats are seen center-right.

I agree, there is division and only getting worse. And the US is not the only one.

The USA doesn’t have a left ??????? …. Wow
Don't take Albert out of context, T1.  I think there is a gap here with respect to language, and I have come across this before with you Aussies.  Center Right might seem something different in Oz than here.  The viewpoint here in the States is that left, far left, is Socialism.  And that is where we are on that front.  The right is Christian Conservatism.  And respectively, it is a Black-White issue moreso than anything else.

Glad you two are tuned into our political issues.  Me, I am trying to live life and blow it off in my elder years.  I cannot let it bother me.  I have bigger fish to fry.

But seriously, mates, don't let our politics start biting at you.  Worry about other issues.  The United States of America is not perfect, but no country is.  I'll put my Stars and Bars flag up anytime when compared to any other country/government.  As the late Jerry Garcia sang, "Red and white.... blue suede shoes.  I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do?"

V8 Supercar Fantasy League / Re: 2021 V8CFL - General Chat

At this rate don't be surprised if The Arrow Motorsport bails next season. We've sucked for about 13 seasons in a row now...

You are an ICON in the V8CFL, James.  You are the Media Centre Guru.  Don't let the "reset" of the site knock you down.  The Media Centre will come back.

As for success..... mate, you won at Sandown this year!  You won the Tournament a few years back.  You choose the drivers and cars you like/follow.  Take your success as it comes and laugh at those who do not get it at the times you have your success.  You are the first guy I buddied up with on this forum.  I will always remember that and our conversations about the Sydney Thunder cricket team and your family pic.. 

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but back around 2008-ish when I first logged onto the old forum, you were the defending champ of the old fantasy league?

Stick around, mate.  You're gold - no matter how the stats shake out.  And stick with the guys you like in the V8CFL.  That's what makes the eventual win taste great.  I'd rather lose with the guys I like than win with the guys I don't like.

Compared to the Murdoch media who push the Qanon conspiracy theory, old Aunty is a saint.

Fact don't matter to the conservative. They are incapable of rational, independent thought. Always posting the first link that comes up on Google that aligns with their misguided  thoughts without actually fact-checking. But hey, keep up the fight over a cheese wrapper, a kids toy and Children's books that haven't sold or printed in a  decade. Priorities right?

Ummm. Alby mate….this thread is actually about a left winger TV presenter who didn’t fact check

General Discussion / Re: ALP v LP/NP
« Last post by AlbertM on Yesterday at 06:04:39 PM »
Then so is the LNP and PHON. They have struck deals with the Greens from voting preference to passing legislation.

I'd more worried about the far right infiltration of our political institutions. Restricted voted, removing freedoms, telling us who to hate/fear, racism, bigotry, sexism, violence, wide spread corruption, holding technology back, poorer public schools and health. Denying climate science, tax cuts to the wealthy... The extreme left has never been a real threat to our way of life. they have never, or will ever get the numbers to rule. The extreme right on the other hand...

Wage growth and standards of living are plummeting and people couldn't be happier. They are ignorant and easily gaslit. Sheep, if you will...
