    NO I dont like them Too as they too far the other way and after they slagged Trump the other way I dont like this. See you can say I'm not Left nor Right I'm up the centre up two stages so I can see through there rubbish like Labor and Liberal do.

    Yes allegedly ( i'm dreaming because I not that smart to do this) watch Sat TV Bath----urst on D2 + all the camera for cars, + Asiasat 5 + Channel 10 FTA and the Channel 10 feed on D2. I loved it and at the same time I up scalded the 30 m/b feed to 3840x2160P on a Oppo 103D with Darbee Edition to give it depth on my Sony 9400E TV. Yes it spectacular to watch.

    It's pretty simple. if you don't like it, don't watch it. While Sky are right leaning, they do also have numerous left or labor people on it.

    The ABC on the other hand have nothing but far left waffle with not an ounce of balance in any way or form.

    If you don't like Sky, you don't have to pay for it. If you don't like the ABC, you still have to contribute towards the billion dollar tax payer funded money they get.

    Sky is very well run given their budget, the ABC is a bloated bureaucracy.

    The difference between the both is Sky New Paul Murray said at least over 100 time over weeks to Flush this Labor Government down the Toilet and use domestos ( yes I partly know he has to be Joking) and on the last week he become even more desperate and said more than one time. Now for the ABC we all know they are biased toward the Greens and Labor but do they say to flush the Lib down the Toilet and use domestos.
    Sorry Paul you failed with the Eden Monaro bi Election, (Forget the NZ Election because you loss that bet too), you failed with The NT Election and now you failed with the QLD Election so whats next? The WA Election. I think Paul should flush himself down the toilet because he is a zealot and if he cant find a toilet big enough he should go to a Sewerage Treatment Plant and ask the Manager there when can I go to Jump in and you wont need domestos because the bacteria will be good Enough.
    If he was more like Andrew Bolt because Bolt is not over the Edge ( Yes I know his Hard Right But!!)a lot of people would believe him but will never believe him the way he is now and I say a Lot of people would be like me a person that wanted to vote for the libs but got turned off by Pail Murray. I know quit a few around Upper Cabooture to Caloundra area that watch Sky News on Win and I say most of them (Pension Group that I know and in) was watching Sky News and when they watch Paul Murray they would have be turned off like I did.
    The Next Election is Trump and Sleep Joe the worst every candidate than the Demarcates have ever selected and I hope he has more luck with trump compared to the other.

    -IF- I read this correctly and you are saying people ( including yourself as I can interpret what you have written) voted for the other party to what you were going to because of one commentator who you felt was too biased against them, Then that is the most stupid and inane example of cut your nose off to spite your face I have heard of in a long time.

    I know a number of people that won't go back to qld for a holiday while ever the current Gubbermint is in and probably a long time after.
    Still Hope Gladys Likesaticklin Closes the border to all NSW people going to Qld till after the Xmas Holidays.

    Seems to me Qlders are going to get exactly what they Voted for.
    Hope the Qld Gubbermint does not expect the people whom they are closing their borders to to prop them up in the wake of the outfall.

    Same goes if Victorians are stupid enough to vote Andrews back in.
    After recent events, no stupidity would surprise me

    Just when I thought I couldn't be surprised, I have been sitting here watching the ABC news with Dad.
    Fk me sideways!

    The level of Bias and complete and utter Bullshit is astounding. Yes, I have seen it before a while back but seems they have managed to up it up another few notches.
    They keep going on about the china pox being such a huge concern but multiple surveys it's about 4th on the list of concern to Americans.
    What I would like to know seeing the claims are Trump has handled the Virus so badly is what Bidumb is going to do different? Everything I have seen suggests Other than making masks mandatory, Not much at all because what else can he do.
    The ABC go on about the catastrophe in the US of China Pox which is all Trumps fault and the very next story is the UK is going into 4 weeks lock down with record cases. No mention of blaming Johnson for that.

    They also ran a piece Claiming Bidumbs Laptop was a Smear Campaign buy Chinese backing Trump.
    The Denial and bias of the ABC is staggering. Even when confronted with irrefutable fact, they just stick their head in the sand and deny everything.

    Everything they report even when reporting the undeniable is twisted and Maligned with an editorial slant.

    Remember I've had 5 strokes but still can write with some difficulty but I do not to wish you one stroke because if you do you might end up dead or end like me.
    Look no doubt the complete fox team have a meeting in private and they say we will do this and that to give disinformation out but it does not work for all because most can see their diarrhea they are dishing out. I was surprised on what the Youngest Son from Murdoch and what he said about Murdoch Media.

    Admin and George65, this not meant as having a shot at you but a genuine question, you both have had similar experience of major trauma in your lives, both of you share similar opinions and out looks and am curious if you think past experiences affect your attitude to politics and life?

    No offense Taken.

    In answer to the overall question, definately.
    I know I have a very different attitude and outlook to a lot of people. I have a motto that you have to be prepared to loose in order to win when it comes to the crunch and I live by that where so many people seem scared of that and will take the cautious and safe road.

    Was there anything in particular you were referring to as far as opinions and outlooks?


    I'm not sure about political POV, I myself don't see how that would be affected but I'm probably the worst person to ask.
    I really didn't pay much attention to politics at all until fairly recently. I still think it's a complete and utter joke in the main.
    I am still not that interested in politics, it was the complete and Utter BS leveled at Trump. Can't stand Hypocrisy and misinformation and I look into things that interest me.

    They made out Trump was such a bastard, I started looking at things to see how he could get away with them and see the bigger part of the scandal. Soon found there were so many utter lies and none of them had any factual grounding.
    Looked at the Numbers for how the US was going under Trump and found they were good and the accusations are just Opinion and unsubstantiated.
    The BS has only more maniacal over time.

    I am interested now because I am scared. I won't survive in a world run by leftists. I struggle with all the PC bullshit now.
    I see bidum winning as the end of the western world as we know it and that's a fearful thing for me.

    Thanks for that George, probably what i was eluding too was whether trauma makes you (general) a little more pessimistic in your dealings and tolerance with others as a by product, badly worded but i think you get what i mean
    My view, all political parties are as bad as each other, all news out lets are biased to some extent, i just cannot get myself to say one is preferred over the other, it is now just the inherent system

    I, too suffered significant trauma. (21% permanent brain damage). It doesn't appear to have affected my outlook on life. If anything it has only confirmed my belief in a higher power (God, in my case). My political outlook has not changed, nor has my view on the world and the crap that goes on. I have always been an optimist and do tend to have an optimistic view, even on our politicians. They are, lets face it, doing a thankless job where, regardless of their decisions, a portion of the population are not going to like it. Every decision that they make is going to be second guessed by armchair experts (here, at Austech, is no different) They are responsible for running a "company" - i.e. the country which, if truth were known, no Company CEO would volunteer for a pay cut to have every decision questioned. Who is the alternate leader for BHP, or AMP, or........ Yet we all know who the alternate leader for the country is.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    I'll but in here, so apologies to allover. Your last sentence is largely true IMO. The difference for me is one of basic philosophy. From my perspective, socialist societies are doomed to failure because everyone involved MUST conform to have ANY chance of success. Human beings will resist that, and as a result anarchy and violence will follow, and from my observance always has.

    To take a leaf out of Winston Churchills book (I think), democracy is the worst system of government invented except for everything else that has been tried. Socialism MUST diminish democracy so as to force everyone to be on the same page whether they like it or not. End result, violence and anarchy as I said.

    Could be wrong of course.....after all, I'm not a socialist....

    Oh, allover...name one, just one....
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.
