Our beloved prime minister (please note the sarcasm) states that he wishes the burqa was not worn because he believes it to be a confronting attire but then he claims that its not within the governments place to tell people what they should and shouldn’t wear. Its like saying “no offense but…” and then offending someone. Saying those type of things and then claiming that whatever you have said doesn’t necessarily hold because ‘freedom of religion’ is not right. As a government you should be tolerant but your backwards attitude and prejudice proves otherwise. Claiming that you can have “an opinion” or a “preference” is totally wrong. You are the prime minister of australia and you should be promoting acceptance for all religions. Don’t fall back on the ‘security’ argument because thats not what the question asked.

He didn’t preface it well however I agree with Tony on this part of the press conference: It is for security. The Parliament has stepped up it’s security due to specific, targeted threats against politicians, and members of the public (all members, not just those of this or that faith) have to adhere to it.

Just like anyone else needs to remove a motorcycle helmet, or any other item of clothing etc that coves their face and prevents people from being identified in a security scenario.

You are not exempt from security procedures. The rest of the population have to comply as well.

Tony Abbott’s personal comments on the burqa should not have entered his statement, but on the security issue alone, I agree.

Countdown to HalloweenGhostbusters (1984)

Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost? If the anser is ‘yes’, then don’t wait another minute. Pick up the phone and call the professionals… Ghostbusters.

You’re born with a ton of fucks to give, so you spend them like a kid with a credit card. You give fucks about your friends, about your grades, about your fashion sense, about strangers’ opinions. You give way too many fucks about way too many things. You have so many. Then, as you get older, you have maybe 10 fucks per month, so you learn to budget them. You allocate fucks to family and career, but there aren’t enough fucks to give to the newest fads. Oh, someone at work has something they need my help with that’s outside my job title? I’ll do my best to allocate some fucks, but this month is pretty tight. Then, as you get even older, you’re down to 1-2 fucks per month, and those fucks are pretty damn precious. You give them to your family and your hobbies and your job, and that’s kinda it. It’s not your fault – fucks expire too quickly. I would’ve liked to save my fucks from when I was younger but I can’t. Then, you hit fuck insolvency. You’re getting like 1 fuck a year, and you have to make it last. So you go without, and even previously fuck-worthy things, you just can’t give a fuck. Some people run out really quickly, Some people have a fuck trust fund that pays out a decent amount even into old age. But at some point, the fuck faucet runs completely dry and you’re out of fucks to give. It’s just basic Fuckonomics.

At this point I have fucks for my fiancée  and sometimes WoW. That is all. Even my writing is no lFUCKfuck-worthy.

Wow. So accurate.

I’m on a strict annual fucks-to-give budget. I usually deplete by January 15.
