Why Holdens have to be tough

Different people have different expectations of their shiny new Holden. I wonder if the designers of the VE Commodore had this in mind when they sweated over their drawing boards?

I'm all for it......means less Arabs in the long run.

This is what happens when you're a brain dead young bloke with no access to women and access to cars.

Google up all the crashes when these idiots are doing their drifting at high speed in public roads.

Darwinism at its finest.

Maybe that's why they banned alcohol over there. Imagine that combination.

Yep, any one from the Middle East wants to explode things.

Tragically, people like you still have the freedom &/or responsiblity of voting.
Some people's necks don't need any sun to be an ugly red colour.

...sexism and racism aren't wearing thin? What is this - 1964?

Next thing we'll have someone defending a joke about diff whine and Aboriginal people, as 'harmless fun'. This nonsense about Muslims, women, and other groups in society wore out its tragically stupid welcome years ago.

HK'ing.

It's the snivel libertarian do gooder warm and fuzzy hippy tree hugger mentallity, which is wearing thin and stuffing our society!!!

How do you like that for name calling, lol.

That mentallity will have (and allready has) a lot to answer for!

That is the whole f@#$^^&g problem and the reason we're all having to walk around on egg shells.

Ooh aah, someone made a joke about wogs, ooh, some one said rag head, ooh, PLEASE!

It's because of snivel libertarian do gooders, that all this is now supposed to be offensive and pushing us backwards by 50 years.

I suppose your one of these brown nosed libertarians that reckons we shouldn't wish each other a happy christmas, for fear of offending Muslims or others who don't believe in God or Christmas, but rather bid each other "Happy Holidays" as it is more sensitive to others beliefs??

Guess What, in case you hadn't noticed, we are all different! Christians, Aetheists, Muslims, Black, White, Yellow, Male, Female!!

While we might be all fundamentally the same, we all have differences and if we can't make light of these differences and have to tip toe around everything, that my friend will wear thin and when it does, look out.

What concerns me, is that you have a classroom full of young minds, some of whom you will no doubt brain wash with this crap and have them living in fantasy land.

I'm not professing hatred, but what I am professing is the good old Aussie piss taking and making light of things, including ourselves, as being much better in the long run, than walking around on egg shells trying not to offend someone.

Besides, everyone who has moved to Australia, I assume, would have moved believing it is a better place, so why the hell are we changing everything to suit those that come hear???

We need to wake up before we lose what we have!

So, let me be the first to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Relax mate, you don't have to walk around on eggshells over anything. Your life is nothing like as threatened as you carry on about.

Not referring to anyone from the Middle East as bombing killers is incredibly normal and easy.

People who consign massively pig-ignorant terms like 'rag head' aren't "stuffing our society" either.

Here's a fact to consider: (from listening to and learning from people different to me...) the vast majority of Muslim Australians are perfectly comfortable with the majority of other Australians celebrating xmas (both tacky and tasteful).

Basically, you're fearfully misrepresenting all the normal, healthy progress that helps different people get along better with each other.

Making a mountain out of a molehill hinders, not helps, how Australia develops. Of course there are idiots in every part of society, from blinkered conservatives, to witless hippies, to the stupidly aggressive, to the stupidly passive and sheep-like. Don't let extremist headline grabbers fool you into thinking everything new (or different) is bad.

HK'ing.

P.S. From what you've typed, what you know about classrooms or being vilified, could be written on the back of a stamp.

P.P.S. Those guys do control their Chevy Statesman/Caprice things pretty damn well..!

Part of Australian, and indeed our heritage of largely Anglo-Saxon culture, is the trait of, to put it mildly, taking the piss out of every sector of society. I'm not changing my culture to suit anyone else who comes here to benefit from the society my culture has built.

It's perfectly acceptable to criticise the French for their cultural traits, but one cannot make a reference to Arab muslims being prominent in attacks on others using bombs? When there have been 18,110 global terrorist attacks since 9/11 (and counting) motivated by a mixture of their religion and culture, I think making jokes about them is the least threatening way we can talk about that and keep that in mind.

Now, I'm off to share a merry Christmas meal with friends including serves of bacon and alcohol and maybe a reference to Jesus when we mention CHRISTmas. Shhh silence, how dare you offend others with your endemic cultural traits, off with your head!

Not sure who you were quoting there?

Not just anyone from the Middle East is a suicide bomber or IED layer etc.

The oppressed peoples of the Middle East such as the Copts are not 'bombing killers'. Nor are the remnant populations of Zoroastrian Persians and Jews in Iran. Or the original Assyrians, the Lebanese Christians, the Samaritans of the Holy Land, the Circassian Armenians and remnant Greek populations of Anatolia. How about the Chaldean Christians of Iraq? At a stretch, the Kalash people of Pakistan, who stretch their history to soldiers of Alexander the Great settling in the region, 2,300 years ago. A people with a rich culture, being slowly strangled. Then there are the Sikhs.

None of them are cultures that have generated bombing killers. They ARE all captive peoples living subject to the whims of (apart from the Sikhs, Zoroastrians and Kalash) those who conquered them long ago, and have been strangling them slowly for 1,400 years. Not calling all those nations/cultures 'bombing killers' is normal and easy.

An honourable mention to the Buddhist peoples of the Middle East who are forgotten now, exterminated, like so many others at the hands of the contemporary majority populations.

I've never called anyone a rag head and I would hope you aren't implying that I have. Being armed with facts is much more sensible.

And please don't mention the US Invasion of Iraq from 2003 since I've mentioned the Chaldeans. They have been suffering far longer than that.

Errr, S.T., I was actually quoting myself.

It is all to easy for several people who visit here, and a sadly sizeable minority around Australia to use ignorant references about Middle East folk. That type of behaviour is toxic to harmony in Australian society, but they usually don't get it. I was only repeating my own statements for emphasis.

I can see you get more than most, that generalising across a hugely diverse region does no-one any favours.

HK'ing.

As I have said, we are all different in some way and yet in many ways we are all very much the same!

We have differences, even from those of the same origin or culture as ours - every one of us is unique.

I do have some very good friends of middle eastern descent, in fact some of my closest and most trusted friends can trace their origins to the middlw eastern region!

What I do fail to see is how refusing to change, simply to appease newcomers to this country, is "fearfully misrepresenting all the normal, healthy progress that helps different people get along better with each other"????

With different cultures mixing into our society, it is inevitable that change will happen and for the people who have come here in search of a better life, I don't have an issue with that, it is normal that this should happen - We can't expect that everyone entering this country is going to suddenly forget all their culture and traditions and become exactly like us, nor should they, but these changes for the most part can be quite beneficial to our society.

So no, not everything new or different is bad.

My gripe is not with people who come here for a better way of life and learn to assimilate with the natives, over time, my gripe is with snivel libertarian do-gooders and fundamentalist minority groups who try to change our way of life to appease minority groups, under the guise of not wanting to offend anyone!

If you are concerned that taking the piss in an Aussie larakin kind of way as possibly being offensive to some of these minority groups, then I consider you to be part of the problem!

What about them offending the majority of us who are happy with the way things are, who don't want them changed, who have grown up with these things so they are part of our traditions and culture???

Oh that's right we're a majority so our ways may be seen as a threat to minority groups and not the other way around. Well if they don't like our culture - screw them! Why the hell do you think they are here?? Hello, they could have quite easily stayed where the hell they came from if they are so happy with the way things are there!!!

Oh yeah, while I think of it, you would call our soldiers fighting in the Middle East to try to restore some kind of order, as "pig-ignorant" because of these terms?? I'd love to see you spend some time with these brave Aussie men and women and explain their "pig-ignorance" with the use of these terms!

So you think all this is making a mountain out of a mole hill do you? You think that the minority of fundamentalist types are of no threat to us or our way of life?? Your obviously of such superior intelligence to anyone who thinks otherwise??

You must be of a much higher intellectual level to even those who have experienced this very thing in their country of origin and is possibly the reason they left that country??

Of course, if you're aware of the Muslim culture and their way of life, you would obviously be aware that there are extremist fundamentalists in that culture too, (and I know theirs is not the only culture this can be related to), you being of the superior intellect that you must be and what with being a tutor to our youth, you would also be aware that Iraq, for example has a 97% Muslim population of which consist two main muslim groups Shi'ites 65% and Sunni 35%.

You would no doubt know that minority fundamentalist Sunni group rule the country, (of course you would, Saddam Hussein was a Sunni). The rest of the Sunni population aren't going to complain, why should they, they have it quite good and should any Shi'ite complain, well, they will either be arrested or just simply disappear.

Hang on, isn't that a minority extremist fundamentalist group ruling the country???

Take just about any country with Muslim immigrants and you will find all of them are experiencing problems with these immigrants, regardless that the majority may be quite okay, it's the extreme minority causing all the drama. Look at France, Germany, the Baltics, Holland has banned any more Muslim immigration!

Wherever you have a minority ruling a majority, no good can come of it. Look at our own Minority rule government, dancing to the tune of even more minor parties or independants, look at the mess that's causing and that's without throwing Muslims in the mix :P

Majority groups tend to become complacent, so the minority groups making all the noise start to get all the attention and once they change things to suit their motives, it can be very hard to undo these changes.

Don't worry, I don't walk around on eggshells and I do still take the piss, oh yeah, and you must have some bloody big stamps ;)
