This will be interesting. Folau will argue on the basis of religious freedom, while Aus Rugby will argue on the basis of a breach of the Code of Conduct. On face value, and if you read the player code, and the fact that Folau was previously warned, I would be surprised if Folau wins. But in these current times with the increase in fundamentalist views, particularly now in the Aus gov't, who knows what pressure will be applied to the judiciary behind closed doors.

The fact that the CEO of the Wallabies major sponsor is gay would have nothing to do with the sacking... sure. Old saying... don't bite the hand that feeds you.

Wow..people getting worked up and agro about someone inconveniencing one minute of a day, but then take way longer than that reading and then commenting on the non event. And life goes on.

The lake in question has very clear water, white sand, and looks very inviting. Once you go in about 10 metres it suddenly drops off into very deep water. Within one or two steps it goes from knee deep to many metres deep. For a non swimmer it would be easy to get into trouble. Would have to wonder though about the level of supervision on the tour.

A few good facts here...
But don't let the facts get in the way of a good uninformed rant.

Well lets just stop pussyfooting around and call it for what it is...ethnic cleansing. And why are other world leaders not calling it the same. History has a way of repeating itself.

The most worrying thing about this topic is how it polarises everyone. Unhealthy and dangerous. The fact that this is on the increase since Trump came to power might give you a clue. As a well travelled non-American I can assure you that the general feeling worldwide is that Trump is a white nationalist.

So this kid thinks that the rules don't apply to him. His reaction is to abuse the teacher for upholding the rules. If somewhere in his future he continues this attitude he will be unemployable. If nothing changes he will be that kid that abuses your wife, your daughter, or you, in the street and on the train. A lesson to be learnt is that if you keep pushing someone, then eventually you will be dealt with in kind. Lets hope he reflects on this.

Bullying and threats may work on China's citizens, but it won't cut it internationally. Plenty of Chinese that want to live elsewhere, but I don't know of anyone that aspires to live in China.

Maybe just ask yourself where a lot of political donations to the Liberal Party come from.

Just needs Jack Nicholson looking at Trump and saying "You can't handle the Truth "
All this in a country that just elected a dead person. Ha ha.

One only needs to open their eyes and read what the rest of the world is saying about, and analysing, Trumps comments and performance on the world stage. Laughing stock would be rather kind. Some people really do need to take the blinkers off. I genuinely feel sorry for those thinking Americans who are being tarred with the Trump brush.

I was going to make some comment about a "Moral Compass". But then remembered that Trump has no morals at all. I think I will go with..."mental Illness", which seems to apply to Trump more aptly. USA, you will eventually reap what you sow ( which is entirely unfair to all the "thinking and unbrainwashed " Americans.)

The biggest problem USA has is that, in the debate over the gun issue, one side of the debate seems to think that there is no problem at all.

"The court pointed out "the physical confinement was moderate" as Terauchi left a window unlocked and often went on a trip, leaving the girl at home. It also acknowledged the confinement involved "no physical violence or verbal abuse."
So did he just want the company? Weird.

The vast majority of Japanese are "politicly immature". They just don't care. We need to stop judging what is happening here and comparing it to what would happen in any other developed democratic country.

Kids always have , and always will do stupid and reckless things. Its called growing up and taking risks. Some more risky than others. Most times it does not result in anything too bad. In this case quite a few families will be impacted. Sad.
