General Climbing Discussion

Australia goes down the toilet! 22-Aug-2010 At 7:05:25 PM Phil Box
My my, how tolerant everyone is when someone has a different opinion and is brazen enough to express it.

Went climbing today so missed all this serious political ranting. Let me tell you a story. During the day and in fact being the day after the election we all got to talking about said election. Most of the climbers mentioned that they had voted green. I said that I had voted for Abbot and crew. We then proceeded to have the most uproarious fun ever. Very robust discussion ensued. Now what would have happened if I had merely mumbled in my beard and then everyone present all agreed that greens are great.

I think that more people need to say things straight particularly when politics comes up. Makes for a very fun and dynamic discussion.

Get over yourselves, this is a politics thread. It would be incredibly sad if all we wanted is clones of ourselves and to become a mutual admiration society.

On an adventure camp one Christmas the bus driver mentioned that he hated Pauline Hanson. So I told him in front of all the kids that I loved Pauline Hanson. by the end of the trip all the kids were on my side and the bus driver still hated Pauline Hanson. Great discussion was had by all and it was all in good fun. The bus driver and I are still good mates and Pauline Hanson is no where to be seen. Fun times.

So where did all the racism comments come from, what is that all about.

What this discussion is really about is politivcal parties and personalities covering up their real agendas. They know that if they stated their case outright then voters would find their policies too unpalatable to stomach. So they sugar coat the message and then after they gain power you will see the real agenda come forth.

Well I'm sick of it and at every opportunity I will not be PC. I will say it how I see it. Of course that will only occur in politics threads. If you don't like it then feel free to disagree and state your case. But please be civil and dare I say, tolerant of other peoples views. You do yourselves no favours for your cause by exhibiting such intolerance.

Carry on.
