  1. The Taylor Swift Thread

    I don't care about the song one way or another really but the music video is [!@#$%^&*] great.
  2. The Taylor Swift Thread

    Maybe for some of her more conservative/country fans (if she still has many of those), but other than those, I doubt it. I think the younger end of her fanbase is in the 12/13 range and I doubt this a deal breaker for them or their parents. My sister plays Top 50 nonstop and this is honestly sort of tame compared a lot of what's "hot" right now. Just from view, I'd certainly rather my sister listen to this than over stuff like that "Body Like a Back Road" song and Chris Brown (just for two examples). Can anyone explain to me why people think she voted for Trump? I'm seeing this everywhere today lol.
  3. The Politics Thread

    We have a few of them but they're usually kept to the fringes and out of the main parties. She's the most aggressive and has lasted the longest, mostly because of these stupid stunts and latching onto whatever the "fear" of the moment is (in the 90s it was Asians, then it was feminists, now it's Islam). She was in the Liberal Party (the Australian conservative party) for a while but then she just got too nuts for them and they threw her out her. Now she has her own party and just does [!@#$%^&*] like this. She doesn't care about representing Australia, she just wants to be on the telly and peddle nonsense. Yes it's the Liberal Party. Here the Liberal Party is the conservative party (along with the various smaller conservative parties) and the Labor Party is the democratic socialist (I guess that'd be the Democrats in America) along with the Greens. The Liberals did dump Abbott for Turnbull. He's not great or anything but he's definitely better than Tony Abbott.

    Please ignore this toxic fool like most of us here try and attempt to do (even though she makes it quite hard). She wants to be our version of Trump so bad and thrives off attention which is why she's constantly pulling these idiotic and hateful stunts.

    As an Aussie, I can promise you that most of us are pissed off with Trump and the conservatives in the US in general. For a very long time, the US was the leader of the free world (not any more obviously) and leading the way. The entire world has an opinion on the US and it's politics and outside of the likes of Pauline Hanson, Nigel Farage, and Geert Wilders, it's not a good opinion. He and the conservatives are embarrassing your country and are a disgrace. I was just in South Africa and while in a pub, Trump came on one of the tellys and the entire place burst out in laughter and boos just at a picture of him. When Mike Pence was in Sydney, his motorcade got booed whenever people saw it driving around. He went sightseeing in private (something no visiting politician ever does usually) just to avoid running into people and again being booed.

    That Montenegro performance was something lol. Good lord.

    They're refugees that we're brought here (I'm in Australia) before they could be properly vetted because they were trying to get them out of wherever before they got killed. They are currently being held in limbo at what are basically offshore detention camps while Australia tried to find places for them and get them vetted. Basically Australia doesn't want them so they're trying to force them to go other places. Obama agreed for some of them to be brought to the US. Trump said he'd honour the deal but now this is happening. I just don't even know what the [!@#$%^&*] to say about all this. Everyone I know and everyone here is just like WTF. EDIT: Basically what OzFrog also basically said below as well.

    As a horrified outsider looking at this [!@#$%^&*] show happening, all I can only assume is these people won't be happy till America is purged of anyone that's not a lily white evangelical Christian and then they can have their desired society where people like Trump, Paul Ryan and Steve Bannon are in charge and women know "their place". Everyone not fitting into these specific parameters (i.e. Jews, Muslims, all brown people, the gays, the feminists, whoever) will just go back to wherever they came from. My step cousin (a blonde Jewish guy who was born in South Africa and raised in New Zealand and is a dual citizen of both) flew from NZ to Los Angeles during the chaos in US this weekend. He got flagged by TSA for extra questioning that went on for 2 hours and which basically amounted to "your Russian last name sounded sorta vaguely like the one the Boston Bombers had and maybe if strain our eyes you could maybe look a little bit like them too". He looks nothing like them and his last name is only similar in the last letter and the origin. I'm guessing this will start being the case of anybody from another country coming that doesn't fit into Trump's America.
  9. The Politics Thread

    A lot of my family is Russian (but anti-Putin and aren't living in Russia) and my aunt watches some sort of Russian television channel all the time and tells me about how much they fawn over Trump on the Russian state news show. Anyway, she just rang me and told me she saw Trump's eldest daughter hawking some sort of Russian app that tracks and records your travels and that is developed by Russian intelligence officials (so I'm sure this app reports back to them somehow). I look it up and sure enough, it's definitely a real thing. Have any of you guys seen this over there in your news coverage? It's definitely alarming.
  10. The Politics Thread

    I mean, as someone whose grandparents and family had to escape Europe to avoid the Nazis and concentration camps, I can't really work up any sympathy for neo-Nazis- no matter where they are in the world- getting punched in the face.
  11. The Politics Thread

    I'm heading to the march we're having here in Sydney along with my husband, my 13 year old sister, and her friend. Thinking of all of you in America who didn't vote for this and don't deserve it. Stay safe.
  12. The Politics Thread

    I think i posted about it here, but I can speak/understand Russian so I watched some footage of the news on their state news network and it was insane. They were calling him not just Golden Boy but "our darling Trump", "our marvelous Trump", and "our wonderful Trump". They also discussed about how Trump has a "weakness for blondes" and will do away with "irritating things" like democracy and will promote Russia to all of America.
  13. The Politics Thread

    This is really blowing up (even down here) on the news and imagine it's only going to get bigger as more comes out and as people have time to go through the documents.
  14. The Politics Thread

    I swear to god everyday I learn something new about American politics. I had no idea that anti-vaxxing was a thing outside of religious circles. Are these people against all vaccines or just MMR?

    Sorry for my ignorance, but Americans have to get their own private health insurance? There's absolutely no government provided healthcare? And you're paying $700 dollars per a prescription and not everything is even covered? WTF. Does this Here, everyone has access to medicare and you can get your own private health insurance to go with it if you want. Basically everything is covered and I've never paid more than like 35 dollars for a prescription either.
