    We try to send our immigrants to sparsely populated areas up in the cold dark north. They protest .. ofc.

    You should send them inlands. Let them build their own infrastructure.. Paradise dont happen over night.

    They send them down here but not all stay it gets to cold for them. They like big cities we only have small ones here.
    It would be better not to bring them here not sure why they are so insistent that we take them all. 300,000 a year is a lot . that's the think a lot of them can't speak English they go onto Government benefits and stay on the draining the economy. Plus Muslims here have more than one wife and children to multiple wives and get paid Government / taxpayers monies to do that. Polygamy is illegal in this country yet they let them do it ?

    I trade you 1 of your trouble makers for myself. I would set up camp in middle of Australia. Live of the land and be happy..
    As long as I can have fresh drinkable water.. I bet I somehow could survive.

    Your only givin me a very slim chance of surviving. Are you ? :Sneaky:

    With a deep well there should be water. With water I can grow plants to later feed some chicken..
    I only need some startup ransions for a few months to get everything setup & going properly.

    Solar panels will provide my power. And thats something you have plenty of... sunshine

    I know I could always ask @CasualBystander for advice in farming techs.

    Ummm maybe. Its a pretty harsh environment out there in the Outback. First time I went out there I got heat stroke. Aborigines know how to get water from tree roots and old creek beds they are masters of it. Yes maybe CB would go well if you took him with you.

    Polish president likens EU membership to past occupations


    Andrzej Duda complains European Union membership allows 'people in far away capitals' to make decisions on Warsaw's behalf.

    [​IMG]

    Polish President Andrzej Duda has likened Poland’s membership of the European Union to the successive occupations of the country by Russia, Austria and Prussia, press reports said Wednesday.

    He said that today, as during the 123 years between 1795 and 1918 when Poles answered to an occupying power, “in far away capitals, they make decisions for us… and in reality we are working on behalf of others.”

    Speaking at an event in southwestern Poland marking 100 years since the country’s sovereignty was restored following World War I, Duda said: “We have today a sovereign and independent Poland where I believe… we will live better and better. Talk about it to your children.”

    To people who say the European Union is more important than Poland, Duda said “everyone should remember the 123 years of partitions” when the country answered to occupying powers.

    “People would say (at the time), maybe it’s better, there won’t be any more quarrels, uprisings… we’ll finally have peace,” he said.

    But they “soon realized that while the wars continued… we don’t decide for ourselves anymore, now somewhere far away, in faraway capitals they make decisions for us, they take the money we earn through our work, and in reality we work on behalf of others.”

    Poland, which joined the EU in 2004, is the top beneficiary of funds from Brussels, netting some $12.4 billion a year.

    Duda is a close ally of the ruling right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party, which came to power in 2015. Since then, relations between Warsaw and the European Union have soured, mainly over controversial justice reforms that put the courts under government control.

    Critics at home and abroad believe the court reforms introduced by the PiS threaten the separation of powers, and in December the EU launched unprecedented disciplinary proceedings.

    The EU’s censure could ultimately lead to Poland losing its voting rights in the bloc.

    Finally we got some sort of agreement from the EU today.

    We can now start making our own trade deals being one of them.

    Seems absolutely crazy that they have to go through the EU in the first place, what benefit in doing so was there?

    I was going to post snippets from an article in The Economist magazine, is that a UK magazine?...The writing has changed so much for that magazine, it seems many writings start off fine but quickly turn sour...I used to read every issue a few years ago, but they have changed too much for my taste...

    Facepalm. Voluntarily joining an alliance is completely different than being forced into one without consent, or from invasion.

    There's PROS and CONS to everything. You have to take the good with the bad sometimes. Lets look at the real issue here: U.S. invasion of every state threatening the petro-dollar caused the refugee crisis in Europe.

    Libya, Iraq, now Syria. They are fleeing from Africa into Italy and swarms of non-Italians. They are fleeing from Syria obviously (you would too). Where would you go? Answer: Germany or other European nation most economically stable.

    The 'national security' of implementing necessary actions to protect the U.S petrodollar is causing all kinds of 'global insecurity' environmental and political havoc, not the European Union and it's policies.

    There's been a huge benefit from joining EU economically.

    The muslims are trying to transform Belgium by male and female segregation and make sharia law the law of the land...

    Islam Party stirs controversy ahead of Belgian elections

    Amid Europe's turbulent political landscape, a party - whose aim is to create an Islamic State - is hoping to win seats in Belgium's October municipal elections.

    The Islam Party got two members elected in 2012, including one in the Molenbeek area of Brussels.

    This year, it will stand in 28 municipalities in all.

    Among its policies: it wants to separate men and women on public transport.

    "It's really good to separate men from women on public transport," said Sarouj Mohammed, a Molenbeek resident.

    "There are men who sexually harrass women on buses, there are even women who harrass men too."

    Ann Gilles-Goris, a Molenbeek Councillor, commented: "We build a society by building bridges, by putting people together, by allowing them to experience everyday life together. If we start to separate men and women, I think we're doing the wrong thing."

    The Islam Party - which also wants to bring in Sharia law - is focusing its efforts on conservative Muslims.

    I haven't heard of that either, maybe the muslims are just saying that to justify their attempts of converting the country...

    The day we see any form of "political party" such as this enter government will be the day civil war would happen in the streets. I would hope no Western European country citizens would allow this to happen.
