    Re: Australia plans to ban asylum seekers from ever visiting

    This seems a little odd to me - most people seeking asylum aren't exactly flush with cash and frequent vacationers or business travelers. Who, exactly, would be affected by this new law? I'm pretty sure the Donald Trump types in Indonesia aren't hopping on a raft and floating the ocean when wanting to make some business deals in Australia.

    To put a bit of a twist on this, I've always felt it would be wise and also fair if my government here in Canada refused reentry of any refugee seeking asylum in Canada who then turns around and returns to their homeland on vacation. It displays a false narrative of imminent danger in one's home country if they come to Canada and claim they are in physical danger at home and wish to seek safety in Canada but then are just dandy fine traveling back "home" to visit friends and family and tell them all about what great suckers Canadians are. And to top it off, many of these same refugees then rush to the Canadian embassy in their "home" country if trouble starts brewing while they're there on vacation. It happened most recently when thousands of Syrians, who sought refuge in Canada but went "home" on vacation, scrambled to get Canada to evacuate them when trouble erupted there.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Why not give us some facts instead of waving in the direction of...matter of fact, just what in hell ARE you waving in the direction of anyhow?

    truthatallcost spoke of the fact that Australia with its very limited populace [ranked 52nd in the world], nevertheless is ranked 12th in the world with its GDP. The overwhelming majority of its citizens achieving that high standard vs its population are, as he stated, of European ancestry, 60%.

    Not a racist remark, just the fact of the matter.

    PS: suggestion, use the reply with quote feature when responding to someone else specifically...that way it shows the post you are responding to and to which, by deleting portions, you can specifically, more narrowly tailor your response to the detail of which you so desire.
