Death Panels

The Queensland government's Adult Guardian decided to cut off aid to a woman with cancer who was deemed unlikely to survive. Sounds like a "death panel"* to me, something the public healthcare supporters in the US claim do not exist in Australia and other countries with public healthcare.

60th Anniversary of Communist China

The Chinese are having a parade. "Authorities are taking no chances with security, with the Chinese capital effectively shut down", and everyone told to stay inside an watch it on TV. Good thing too, we wouldn't want to have a repeat of the Tiananmen Square Embarrassment.

China's Government Sucks

Their saying it as she got of murder, but really she's going to jail in China for defending herself against an attempted rape. Now I know almost nothing about the Chinese justice system except that it seems to be pretty harsh (execution for tax evasion for instance), but I suspect Ms. Deng will never leave jail alive. Also the Chinese have no qualms about using prisoners as slave labour, so you can thank Ms. Deng for the donation of her labour to the worthy cause of keeping the price down on your next pair of Nike shoes.

Compulsory Student Union Membership

Wonderful, looks like the Labour government wants to reintroduce compulsory student Union payments for university students. Back to forcing people to pay for services they don't want or need. The student union never did anything useful for me; the only time I was ever in a situation where I might have needed a union, I was forced to join a special "club" as part of being a student, the student union was the actual problem. Sure they called it a union, but it was basically just a special club I was required to join, even if I never used any of their facilities. Isn't the whole point of unions preventing such things? To my mind mandatory union membership is a violation of the very purpose of unions.
