Screw Rock 'n' Roll First, the depth of the crisis is masked for the ALP by the electoral system. The two party preferred system inflates the focus on Labor when the real mood of the electorate is one of a cultural and emotional disengagement with the whole democratic system. The crisis is masked again by compulsory voting when representative democracy itself is now part of the problem as new horizontal and more direct forms of democracy permeate our lives, often online. But in Oz, while you are legally bound to participate in a system that, to say the least, is losing its legitimacy, democracy becomes more and more just an edifice. Of course, the same applies to the Liberals, but it matters more for the ALP because the right is always in power, regardless of whether it’s in office. Democracy is the only tool Labor has, the only source of power and influence.

TRAIN LYRICS - 50 Ways To Say Goodbye My heart is paralyzed My head was oversized I'll take the high road like I should You said it's meant to be That it's not you, it's me You're leaving now for my own good That's cool, but if my friends ask where you are I'm gonna say She went down in an airplane Fried getting suntanned Fell in a cement mixer full of quicksand Help me, help me, I'm no good at goodbyes! She met a shark under water Fell and no one caught her I returned everything I ever bought her Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies And ways to say you died My pride still feels the sting You were my everything Some day I'll find a love like yours (a love like yours) She'll think I'm Superman Not super minivan How could you leave on Yom Kippur?
Music For Kids Who Can't Read Good An Album and a Song is a series where I pick a favorite album and song from a year (working up from 1960) for your listening pleasure. One rule: The year’s album and song can not both come from the same artist. Strangely enough, the Abbey Road got mixed reviews on it’s initial release, but retrospectively it’s rightfully considered The Beatles' last and perhaps greatest masterpiece. The album contains some of the finest songwriting of the band's careers whether it was Lennon's “Come Together”, Harrison’s “Something" (his greatest Beatles contribution), or McCartney’s masterful Side 2 medley, which sees the most legendary band of all time going out in the most grand fashion possible. Michael Jackson obviously had an incredible, groundbreaking solo career but if singing lead on the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" was his only achievement, he’d still be a legend in my book. Listen to Abbey Road on Youtube and “I Want You Back" on Spotify.
songs you taught me If you are a new angler one of the first challenges, before you ever get out on the water, is learning the terminology and what equipment you will need for the type of fishing you want to do. Fishing tackle is the term for everything fishing related, from reels,lines, floats, rods, baits & lures to nets, waders and tackle boxes. The selections and differences are massive, and knowing what you need, and even what is what, can be overwhelming to a new angler. Terminal tackle is the type of fishing tackle that is attached to the end of your fishing line and includes leaders, swivels, sinkers, floats and snaps. A complete set of tackle, ready for fishing is called a fishing a rig, and might be a good idea for a new angler, and can take some of the stress out of trying to select individual items.

Current News Feeds A SURGE in the number of applications for undergraduate science and maths courses has been attributed in part to a federal government scheme. The scheme is aimed to reduce student fee contributions in priority areas. Applications grew by 12.6 per cent to 19,390 for courses starting this year, following a 17 per cent rise to 17,222 last year. Demand was flat until last year, a spokesperson for Tertiary Education Minister Chris Evans said. The federal government allocated $562 million over four years in the 2008 budget to enable universities to lower fees for science and maths courses, amid concerns over the low demand for the courses, especially among high-performing students.
