is it possible for me to leave my ISP contract over the BS thats happening? im on a 12 month contract with belong

i have a vpn but it slows my speeds to a crawl and a few sites i use (vidya forums, music/folm review sites) instantly block me.

i just spent my afternoon arguing with a shitskin on the phone who was trying to rationalise censorship and wasnt even aware telstra was doing this till i told him. i then proceeded to spend the rest of my night trying to figure out pic related to no avail. i shouldnt have to be putting up with this bullshit and paying them too

what the fuck are we gonna do guys?

secure dns is a single setting in firefox, but it won't work unless you've set your dns to an open server like google (8.8.8.8) or cloudflare (1.1.1.1) I think 4chan has rangebanned australia from posting though so you're gonna need the vpn/proxy and a pass because nearly all the vpns and proxies are banned from the chans.

I don't know why the gov doesn't just legalize weed and give out brothel vouchers though, if we have to live through a brave new world you'd think they could crank up the soma and orgie porgie.

>"Tommy" The Loaded Dog [SA]

>The Loaded Dog statue is based on the dog, Tommy, from Henry Lawson`s famous Australian story called "The Loaded Dog" . The story was chosen because it fulfilled all the specifications for the statue at a veterinary clinic. The dog is a spectacular steel sculpture about the size of a small horse and was sculpted by the world famous sculptor Andy Scott in Glasgow, Scotland using his unique technique of wielding of thousands of tiny pieces of steel rod to create iconic street art.

>The story revolves around a mischievous Labrador Retriever dog who picks up an explosive charge, jumps through the camp fire lighting the fuse and the chaos that follows when his owners, Andy and Dave, try to get the explosive charge back before it detonates.

>Billy [NSW]

>Statue of "Billy" the dog, who went on the daily rounds with his master, a Mosman Council Street sweeper, between 1959 and 1978.

>The statue was a gift to the people of Mosman as a reminder of the reliance of animals on man and the debt mankind owes to animals.

>Backpacker Murders [NSW]

>The monument at the site where the bodies of seven missing backpackers were found in the 1990`s commemorates the victims of the crime. Five of the victims were international travellers and two were Australian.

>Ivan Milat was convicted of the murders and is serving seven consecutive life sentences plus eighteen years. There is speculation that he may not have acted alone and may be responsible for more murders.

I suggest going when high, even weed works great. I went a few months ago up in the CBD with a mate after both getting high as fuck. Ended up booking the same room and fucking a girl on separate beds while cracking jokes, laughing etc..

Ended up fucking a beautiful Italian girl who was early twenties. Was sucking on her tits so hard, and kissing her and licking her all over her mouth.

So I'm going for a trip for a few weeks to New Zealand in six months, and just reading about it I'm seriously thinking about moving there.

They seem alot less cucked. Taxed less, better guns laws, airsoft, cheaper living, less coloured people (I hope?)

Anyone living in New Zealand or been there that can tell me a little about it? I'm just so sick of this cuckhole of a nanny state, and you pretty much get all the rights of a NZ Citizen just by being Australian if you go there, so is it a viable alternative?

I'm sick of this whore being lauded as some sort of fucking hero, I'm done.

Lets make a scenario here, you are an ADF soldier who's done your basic, starting your career in the Army and all that shit, so to wind down after those harsh weeks you go to your local brothel and start snorting lines of cocaine and sniffing out of hookers ass cracks, eventually you cook your brain so much that you have an aneurysm and die right on the show floor, in the inevitable media fiasco what would you think would happen, would your very legacy be put into question, or would you be found a hero loved by many?

It would be likely the fore, because any rational human would raise an eyebrow at the circumstances of your death and there would likely be an investigation into the 'toxic' culture of the ADF, but not here.

This wretch was found with 11 guys, alone, in an apartment Stag Party after dying of 'Misadventure', not a normal party, a Stag Party, with 11 guys, alone.

There are lots of things that could happen here

Now remember, the case is being treated as Misadventure

"Investigators are treating the death as a potential case of misadventure and will prepare a report for the coroner, who will determine the cause of death."

>http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/nation/natasha-rowley-from-triumphant-army-graduation-to-private-tragedy/news-story/696049391d9c143155b3a3bcc53fca0d

It may turn out that it's not what i have implied at all, but the use of 'Misadventure' by the police and a Stag Party consisting of 11 Men in their 20s-30s with this one woman paints a picture in most people's heads.

And the upsetting part here is the Media has gone on an emotionally charged campaign bawwing at the death of a slut who literally got fucked to death, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Wowe alot of jaded ADGies here. ADG is bassically Infantry without the bullshit AND you have a peace time role to do. Yes the role is now blue/green as has been said. That is when theres no war on you have to go and do base security with the AFSEC squadrons working in shifts. TBH this sounds comfy as fuck. You get all the grunt quals but you dont have to do the grunt bullshit and unlike grunts when you arent out field or on deployment(which is never) you something productive to do. You can still do sniper, recon, ADGies get all the latest gear as soon as it comes out, faster then Army units do, they are mounted with comfy PMVs and G-wagon SRVs, so you get to drive around with your bros with an open top gun buggie pretending to be SASR if thats your thing, their snipers did have motorbikes too but dunno if thats still a thing. And yes ADGs get deployed, all the time, even when there sno actual wars on. Theres always a contigent guarding an airfield somewhere. They go overseas alot too to guam and other places to train with the USAF secfor. Im currently at looking at transferring over into the mustering because Im sick of the Army's bullshit. I want a comfy retirement job. Ide be happy to put on the blues and stoll up an airstrip then go out sometimes and do some grunt shit in the bush. Too much bush is bad for you.

TBH people who hate on ADGies are just faggot grunts who hate their lives and secrrly want to transfer to something else. The RAAF is always a better quality life so why not have the best of both worlds? If you really wana get your teeth cut into the shit then go Infantry but tbh you wont be going to war anytime soon. Youll get to the end foa 4 years with no trips, a fucked back having missed out on on your support coy course of choice. IMO ADGies also get based in better places, namely they dont go to FNQ or Darwin.

If you delete this that means you say it's homophobic to be against gay catholic priests who rape little boys.

https://8ch.net/pol/res/12911456.html

This will be in court on Friday in Newcastle Local Court. The NSW Police are trying to stop John Sunol surviing long enough to go to the NSW Supreme court where he is to face trial for the crime of blogging irrefutable evidence that the guy who wrote the book on Gay Marriage for Australian Marriage Equality Robert Dolly Dunn interfered with the Wood Royal Commission and did public speaking events in support of 5 year old gay child raping catholic priest robert dolly dunn. Since they started suing us for the hate speech of being against gay lobby and boy raping priest collusion, Robert Dolly Dunn's boyfriend Colin Fisk got out of jail early without an ankle bracelet or proper parole and immegately raped 5 boys within 3 months.

This is big and will be in the papers tomorrow. Your pro-pedophile censorship of this will be screenshotted and shared to a larger audience. So please suprise me SAPol cuckmods and leave it here.

Ah i mean the head of the Gay Lobby Christopher Puplick AM is the cunt who defended a boy raping catholic priest BEFORE he got all of us to vote on sodomite marriage

[–]

▶Man being jailed for exposing head of AU Gay Lobby defends gay catholic pedophile priests on Friday Anonymous 03/13/19 (

Interview with professor James Fetzer PhD.

The Jewish pedophile asshat who organized the Australian Marriage Equality Gay Marriage Vote (Christopher Puplick AM) is on the public record defending a gay Catholic Priest Robert Dolly Dunn who raped 5 year old boys. The government is trying to jail us for CONTEMPT OF COURT for exposing this BEFORE he became a judge.

To stop this going to supreme court they are trying to jail him now for the crime of retweeting a mainstream news journalist, that he didn't even do as breech of bail conditions, the special gay police aka FB/policeglbti did it themselves after siezing his phone to frame him up.

It's all exposed in the video, that has all the supporting links and documentation on it.

Here is an audio version of his submission to the court on Friday:

This is the end result of the Anglo mindset of individualism, hedonism and materialism.

We see big business all around the world constantly do things that lead to financial loss. They promote social justice because they are ideological fanatics. This is not about making money, it is primarily about racial extermination.

> lucky country

why does this bother me

<Donald Richmond Horne AO (26 December 1921 – 8 September 2005) was an Australian journalist, writer, social critic, and academic who became one of Australia's best known public intellectuals, from the 1960s until his death.

<Horne was a prolific[1] author who published four novels and more than twenty volumes of history, memoir and political and cultural analysis. He also edited The Bulletin, The Observer and Quadrant. His best known work was The Lucky Country (1964), an evaluation of Australian society that questioned many traditional attitudes: "Australia is a lucky country, run by second-rate people who share its luck."[2]

<"Australia is a lucky country run mainly by second-rate people who share its luck. It lives on other people's ideas, and, although its ordinary people are adaptable, most of its leaders (in all fields) so lack curiosity about the events that surround them that they are often taken by surprise. A nation more concerned with styles of life than with achievement has managed to achieve what may be the most evenly prosperous society in the world. It has done this in a social climate largely inimical to originality and the desire for excellence (except in sport) and in which there is less and less acclamation of hard work."
