I suggest arms torn off members of Flint Aldermen.

(or is Flint still under State management? In which case, those guys)

When I was 12 all the kids in the village worked on the land we loved it summers together earning money for sweets and extra things it gave my generation a brilliant work ethic that is sadly lacking in today’s kids !

ICE is truly despicable. I mean that in the way I reserve for actual, literal monsters.

They trap human beings and separate families. They steal kids from their parents and parents from their kids. They leave kids alone, unattended, with no recourse. They put kids in cages and rape them.

They are the tip of the sword of America's xenophobia and corruption and hatred. They are the jackboots on the ground.

So, if you haven't heard, Australia is set to pass the most openly and bluntly discriminatory bill in the western world or as Starr put it elsewhere:

yeah this bill as it stands, spells out in explicit detail all of the circumstances in which religious discrimination and persecution would be legal going forward.

Notably specific in all the ways it can be used to deny basic human rights and needs to Australians from different religious backgrounds. Access to health care and appropriate treatment. Housing. Employment. Education.

None of these have any provision, whether state-mandated or governed by the regulatory body of the provider, for duty of continuity of care or referral to alternatives. The landlord, doctor, teacher, or hiring manager can simply lock you out with no recourse.

I don't think even the US "conscientious objector" case laws have even half this degree of blanket reach or specificity, and almost always, in the case of basic human services, have a clause requiring good-faith effort to refer to alternatives.

This is some weapons-grade Dominionist shit.


For fun there's additional context.

You see, this is all taking place while Australia is in the worst fire season in memory, period. An area the size of Tazmania has already burned and this is suppose to be the rainy (i.e. spring) season well before summer dries things out. No meaningful rain is expected anywhere in Australia before April to May. The fires are also incredibly dangerous, with rapid crown fires consuming groves of trees in seconds and of course (it being Australia), when gum trees catch fire they explode.

Firefighters have been protesting outside parliament. Masses of Australians are all-but-rioting at the government's visible and deliberate ignorance of climate change. The opposition tried to pass a bill to pay the huge number of volunteer firefighters who have now gone weeks away from work and have not been paid a dime for their service but the bill was completely shut out. And again, this is months before forest fire season is supposed to even START, normally.

Fire and weather forecasts have stated that without immediate and prompt action now, on a massive scale, there's a very strong probability that entire suburbs of Sydney and Perth will burn to the ground before the end of (their) summer.

Aussies are absolutely and totally screwed.

Around the world, this is the leadership we have taking us into the greatest existential threat the species has faced since the Neolithic, possibly ever.

As someone who has had her town, you know, BURN TO THE FUCKING GROUND, let me tell you the following facts about how it is very possible that your city/town WILL BURN TO FUCKING GROUND:

1. It is very possible that your town/city/whatever can burn to the ground. If you live in the California foothills or near them at all, switch "can" to "at some point, will".
