  1. ... and realize that they can change things just by voting and getting involved in the political process. Hasn't happened yet though.

  2. Correct I'm American. I guess everyone complains about their government, but ours is almost totally being taken over by corporations and the very wealthy. Our Supreme Court recently ruled that corporations can contribute as much money as they want to. Our courts consider corporations the same as citizens. I don't like where we are headed. Am hoping the masses awaken like the Egyptians a...

  3. ..... watched with amusement. The GG liked his drink, but it got sorted. We are governed by the Parliament. Don't need and don't want a PRESIDENT. They are just detrimental to democracy. But we are lucky we have a "King". Sorry, don't mean to come on too strong about this, but it works for us.

    By-the-by, where are you? I think its the US by what you've said: ...

  4. Well, not so much a King, but Queen Elizabeth. She's really just the figurehead, but appoints a Govern General of our choosing. Its just that if the Government "fails" (happened when the Opposite wouldn't pass the Supply Bill) the GG sacked to Government and all hell broke lose. But the constitution said he could do it and the next step was to have an election. I think the Queen...

  5. Sorry,still getting used to this. I posted this on my end. Hope this is right this time."You can only repress people for so long before they revolt.This has been a long time coming in the Arab world and is just the beginning. Am hoping the wealthy here are watching closely because the less well off in the US are in a downward spiral. I wasn't aware that Australia had a King."

  7. Been cut off again!

    ..... irrespective of Egypt.

  8. What's your thought on this Egypt thing. I'm trying to get some objective input, but struggling. The US are worried about their oil, the Israeli's their loss of influence, the Australian's about their tourists.

    Me? I worry that they may replace the Monarchical system here with a Presidential one. And 10 years ago I was in favour of a Presidential system .....not any more, ...

  9. Yea, I don't understand how I went over the limit because I was under 400 characters. What I wanted to say was that the electronic social media doesn't convey the true meaning of an actual conversation. It's just words so you have to be careful about what you write. I don't always remember to do that.

  10. Wombat:I don't know if I'm doing this correctly or not, but I just wanted to let you know that I took no offense at all regarding your reply.I love discussing those types of subjects. My only concern is that I understand that the forum doesn't care for it.I'm old school like yourself and I'm more of a conversationalist and find that the social networks make it difficult to...

  11. Hi Ramjet

    Hope I didn't offend with my responses to your post regarding "your opinions". I had no wish to and tried to reflect that in my replies, but it doesn't necessarily come over that way. Hence this PM.

    Regard, Mal

  12. I wonder if China pirated the design of the F22 for the J20 like they do for everything else. If so the joke's on them!! I still think that the F22 is the sharpest looking fighter, especially the front view when it's on the ground. Great game too!!
  13. I'm not a history professor, so certainly it's my opinion based on what I know about the subject which is only what I have read or seen. One of the points I was trying to make was that it's almost impossible to determine what technology will carry the day in a war, so whether or not stealth technology would be effective is really unknown. The other point was to be wary of information coming from government agencies shortly after their budgets are being scrutinized.
  14. It's been over 60 years since there has been an open conflict between "Super Powers". Most of the conflicts since then have been proxy conflicts with varying degrees of participation with a "Super Power/s". In the majority of these conflicts the technologically superior combatant initially won, but was subsequently forced to leave the conflict. Historically, in the open conflicts between "Super Powers" usually the "winner" was not necessarily the most technologically superior, but the one that was the most technically adaptable during the conflict both militarily and in manufacturing cap
  15. J-20 Stealth Fighter: BE REAL AFRAID! That's what the defense department hopes to convey. Any time there is talk of cutting their budget a new threat always appears. Generating fear = Fat budget.
