    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Well, having systematically annoyed the Coalition supporting portion of the BOS community, I like to think I have left it prouder and stronger than it was. I therefore take this opportunity to resign from this thread (since the HSC is over now anyway). Anyway, its Bennalong time since I started...

    Another shot at WorkChoices in HSC Economics exam

    This is not a post about workchoices. THis is a post about some kind of perceived bias in the HSC question. THat being said, we have all gone off topic a bit. Yes, Workchoices does increase productivity, but with unnacceptable cost to rights, pay, and working conditions. What none of the...

    Another shot at WorkChoices in HSC Economics exam

    Errrr.... so.... seems to me that the answer should be you? Unless you dont like having rights? Point being that this is bad for consumers. Whole "price elasticity" thing from yr11. Without govt competiton laws, monopolies would emerge, and we would have no control over prices. Another yr 11...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Err... I did not say there was not a shitload of economic management in leadership. There is, and thats a fact. But the government has other duties as well. The Terrorism Laws were not economic management. Neither is mandatory detention for illegal immigrants. And last time I checked, going to...

    Another shot at WorkChoices in HSC Economics exam

    Firstly - irrelevant, and an obvious lie. Unless you beleive it, in which case it is simple arrogance. I cant wait for your HSC to get back, so you can cry over the marks you lost because in the fiscal/CAD question you sprinkled irrelevant anti-Labor propaganda. So sure, whatever you say. Too...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Leadership is not all about economic management. Does the man who is working overtime without extra pay under an AWA think to himself - its OK, I'm helping the economy? Your big writing does not scare or intimidate me. Are you compensating for something, or just trying to be annoying?

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Unions are not anti-business. Unions are Pro-employee. A lot of the time the difference is subtle, but it is there. Unions don't go out of their way to hurt employees and businesses - union leaders aren't the uneducated thugs you seem to think they are. They know that in hurting the business...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    I am not attacking him for voting coalition. I am attacking him for his reasons. If he could at least use some half-valid reason like all the other liberal supporters on here who can at least provide some engaging arguement and reasons, then I wouldnt have a problem. But using the electoral...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    1. Plan? 2. What does USYD have to do with anything? And why would want to go there? And why the hell would I want to go anywhere near you? 3. Sorry Liberal guys, but I'm afraid you're stuck with him. See, not all the maniacs vote labor. Please, post something worth reading. You're just...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Im not surprised the only reason you could think of to vote for them was to piss me off. You must have been racking your limited brains for hours trying to think of some reason. Shame it wasnt one that didnt make you look like an immature baby who should have their hands cut off to prevent you...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    Isnt it the duty of the government to make sure the information they are given is accurate? To make sure that they arent putting the public and their country at risk over a lack of knowledge? And I hate to say it, but ... one instance? Come on. I already used these in an earlier post, but I...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    You cant use the $US to measure our economy's success. THe reason it is so high is because the $US is going down as well as the $A going up. That being said, I wasnt attacking your claim that the economy is growing, just the statistic you used to measure it. What makes the economy grow...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    What a relief. Hear that everyone - John Howard is not a liar, he's only ignorant. I guess that means its ok to vote for him. Who would you rather have: a liar as a leader, or an ignorant leader?

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    But we arent talking about murder here... Someone on an income of $100000 doesnt feel a parking fine. Its less painful than a slap on the wrist. They could go out and speed all they like, thinking to themselves "Its OK - what, even if they catch me its only $150!". I mean come on, do you even...

    Another shot at WorkChoices in HSC Economics exam

    Well, all I can say is it is good for you that you did the other option. I mean, someone who obviously has their head so far up their own arse to the extent that they refuse to admit that there are any arguements that oppose them would be better off doing a nice safe globalisation case study...

    Fair enough. As long as we managed to stay balanced though, I rekon the markers will will be fair.

    Multiple Choice

    Definately legal. I dont remember exactly WHAT the ombudsman does (my gut says something about appealing decisions or something), but I know that they are appointed by the government and have legal authority.

    Optional Focus Study

    I think workplace is something like 30%... at leat that was what we were told. World Order used to be a part of the old 3 Unit Legal course, and I think it something like 5-10%. However, dont quote me on the accuracy of any of this - that is, after all, why I am doing the poll :)

    Optional Focus Study

    What Focus Studies did everyone do? Just curious, because a lot of the teachers at our school advocate the less popular focus studies, saying that they would be marked better or allow us to write more sophisticated responses. Anyway, we did workplace and World Order, which I thought were hard -...

    Who is going to vote liberal?

    The closest thing I have ever had to do with marx is in a critical analysis of Wuthering Heights. Are you saying that the rich are NOT getting richer and the poor are NOT getting poorer? Oh, and your post nearly made me piss myself laughing (In a "it was funny" not a "you're stupid" way). I'll...
