@guymosel It's not semantics. When we turn abusers into the "other" we make it harder to accept that they're family, mates, coworkers.@nowvoyager_ Put your phone down and slap someone.Now playing. Will any of you punks listen along? I didn't think so. this. Fuck the cops, and fuck the taxi industry. it is simultaneously terrifying and compelling.We run Victoria's only 24/7 accessible safe house #HittingHome @HittingHomeABC @FergusonNews

Retweeted by Rob RuminskiWell, if she'd been a Thornbury hipster.Sitting trying to write at the pub, but the woman sitting next to me is the spitting image of my mom circa 30 years ago. It's distracting.Maybe the cops did it, or maybe they didn't and just pepper-sprayed the witnesses and let some Nazis get away. Pick your shit sandwich.

Retweeted by Rob Ruminski@Kerry_McBride I'm... flattered?What the fuck is happening in Minneapolis? Nazis shooting #blacklivesmatter protestors? Cops refusing to help the victims?@AtticusThomas @DanWOfficial Did you lose your virginity to an Uncle Kracker album?@MondayStory kill it with fire.@TwoRowBar @ironbarkbbq Is this going to be a regular thing, or this weekend only?@triscdouglas So you're essentially OK with a tax that hits the poor and the marginalised the hardest as a means of social control?@triscdouglas Or, to put it another way, at what point would you concede that it's a a cynical cash grab? $50 a pack? $60? $70?@triscdouglas That's it. Shift the focus to boogeymen in expensive suits, and ignore the insanely regressive nature of tobacco taxes.DO IT. Miles is stupidly talented and a joy to work with. you read the article, the link is specious and speculative. He draws conclusions using a separate study. chuckled, "Nah' man, it's cool. Bitches are always asking me about my gun dick and feelin' it up. I'm not triggered by it.

@kateiselin how did I know that the first response would come from you?.@yanisvaroufakis daddyYANIS 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍@schlutes ...I don't see ridiculing people who are down as the intent of the piece.@schlutes was it reveling, though? I saw satire without malicious personal animosity X it used an unfortunate event to make a point, but...@schlutes It's an interesting line of argument. How much can "I was just trying to make a living" justify furthering the Murdoch empire?@schlutes The tragedy of job losses shouldn't mean that News - along with the journos who have pushed Murdoch's agenda- get a free pass.@DeanBeckOnAir @livingposvic @joelamurray Fantastic news. Well done Joel.@kateiselin and a few ASIO agents for some reason.@kateiselin How many fire trucks arrived at the scene?That's the best @SBSComedy piece I've seen yet. Well done.You let muslin in and then you'll get rayon, chenille, chintz, shantung, and omg, taffeta Keep our fabrics pure

@thewobblythong @mattbrick1 of course not. I'm am open minded guy."If there was no one else here I would fuck that cheese." -- Sunday afternoon snacks with @mattbrick1I want to buy this legend a drink. Australia: we all now live in a country where neo-nazi rallies have become a regular thing. Think about that.@trinnybopper Charming.Jesus Christ. I didn't think that France, of all places, would go this far. and grime and snarl and sleaze and Thalia Zedek & Chris Brokaw. This track is doing it for me today. the skeletons in my closet ever unionize, I'm ruined.
Retweeted by Rob Ruminski2015: the year that Godwin's Law ceased to be relevant in political discussion, because Nazi comparisons were no longer hyperbole.@MelbDave Bayonet light fixtures are proof that Australia has a long way to go before it can truly be counted as a civilized nation.Today in Fragile Masculinity: Where was my invite?!?!?This is, quite simply, perfect. Bravo @HeatherMGreene. be clear, @SouthwestAir let other passengers decide that Muslims couldn't fly with them.

Next you’re gonna tell me they were climate scientists.

Time for more coffee.@Harlot_Blogger Well, I'm working from home and I had panettone for breakfast, so I guess?As a man who lives in a different country from where he was born, I choose to believe that #InternationalMensDay is really all about me.Yeah, sure thing.
