But surely big enough to have a population with differering views on social and economic issues?
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

50% of the folk here are not eligible to vote though :mrgreen:

Not sure folk are big on differing views in this part of the world.

Maybe it will get there someday , but its a long way off at the minute

Ms Barnnie,

The last time someone accused me of being "wu mao" 'er, I showed him the real world fact vs his biased assumptions. Like what I had done with the video e.g.

That help shut that character up. If I am a "50c'er", the response is priceless. 8-)

So your goal in this forum (and life?) is to shut up other people? Did you learn this way of life and thinking from the PAP? CCP? Not everyone plays this upmanship game.

Your response puzzles me.

How on Earth is challenging bias assumptions be construed as an attempt to "shut up other people" ? :o And why do you prefer to assume that I am someone brain-washed by the PAP or CCP ?

I don't agree with any of your obvious slant, nor your suggestion that this is about "upmanship game" to "shut up" alternative views.

To complete my rebuttal, I wouldn't have shared my argument courtesy of YouTube, would I ?
