I look to the sky like Aboriginies ancestors and what do I see. I see the most stable people in Australia have no problem with Sudanese people within their midst. Mainstream people have "no problem" accpeting this. How can they feel at ease while sparks are brewing with Aborigines and racist marginalized white youths. Mmmh aboriginal ancestor what are you telling me. The "mainstream" may have deals in the works in Sudan and this is a just political move on their part. They are not bringing...

Based upon the onus you place on their backs, why do you call them "victims"? Please explain. A woman has been repeatedly abused by her husband over the years. She walks into the police station, finally, seeking protection and relief. CF looks at her and says, "What are you prepared to do to change to help your situation?" First of all - she has taken the first step and is at the damned police station. Second of all, that she has survived as long as she has is a testament to her personal...

Very reasonable expression! Actually about the "saftey net" thing, one of my cousins is also an atheist, but he believes in reincarnation or subconsciousness (he believes that people either either reincarnate or that after death, people remain in a dream-like subconscious state). It's kind of unusual for an atheist to believe in afterlife, but oh well. *shrugs*

For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".
