If you look at a map of Australia you'll see we are a h-u-g-e continent and these places are very far apart. And very different. On a positive note, most people feel this way: "Ms Maasakker said the Sudanese had added another dimension to Toowoomba, and made the town more cosmopolitan." and also this way...

"Male Shortage" vs. "Bad Choices" Sister Powerflower, since you just joined our discussed, I will provide a brief synopsis of what our seven page long thread has been about. The male posters are arguing that Black women are not having satisfying relationships because they make "bad choices." Women posters are arguing that if decent Black men were plentiful, then Black women would have more "better choices" from which to choose. Male posters are denying charges of there being a "male...

one of the reasons why the black man shortage myth is just that is because not all of the women in that 'ratio' are desireable or seeking positive men in their lives. Women are quick to eliminate men who are non-degreed, but never eliminate women with kids. Which is a 'harder' dating situation?? dating a degree-less man or dating a babymomma? I think the babymomma is harder because her kids must come first in her life and require a great deal of her time. Also, what if the kids don't like...

I think there was another discussion thread about this film way back on this board. I really like Hilary Swank as an actor so i will see anything that she is in. I think the boxing chick was Jamaican, but anyhoo... I agree. More black hats vs white hats, ho-humm. Seems even Clint couldn't quite make the break from Hollywood stereotypical scriptwriting in places. A great film with Hilary Swank is INSOMNIA, with Robin Williams as Mr Evil himself. Excellent acting, excellent story, set in Alaska.

Blue Collar vs. White Collar can be very misleading when it comes to salaries. Some so-called blue collar jobs can earn more than some white collar jobs. For example, a construction worker - especially a skilled one - can earn more than some desk jobs. I think the distinction is more about the nature of the work. Blue collar is manual labor. It's physical. So I'd call a landscaper blue collar definitely. But everyone knows that a white landscaper is worth more than a brother who works in a...

The issue that I have is our country is in trouble with the economy. Underemployment is up as well as the chronically unemployed. Neither of these groups are being counted in unemployment statistics. If you don't file for unemployment, you are also not counted in unemployment statistics. Gasoline is almost $3 a gallon in some places, home heating costs have gone through the roof, which has made things from electricity and goods more costly. So the economic outlook of the common man is bleak.
