But you have as yet not given me one reason as to why I should take Trump as anything but a lying, narcissist, corrupt president. I will wait with bated breath.

That's only your boring old opinion, Michael - like your boring old opinion that Barack Obama was a really great guy.
don_dunstan
Blah, blah you boring opinion, blah blah. Just as I thought, got nothing and mentions Obama. Never said Obama was a great guy, but he is certainly better than Trump. Hey a potted plant would have been better. That's my old boring opinion.

The video evidence about Trump is there for all to see Don.

Whatever weed you are smoking, I want some.

You're just like a broken record, Michael, it's just the same stuff over and over and over again. Nothing new, just the same rubbish about Trump being corrupt, racist, whatever. Utterly predictable. Day in, day out.

If Trump wasn't corrupt, racist, misogynist & blustering he would just be an empty vessel. He's got nothing else.

I am also picking holes in your argument. You are right, the Chinese Government did attempt to mislead the world and underplay the effects of the virus. But you get really angry when I and others point out with video evidence, mind you, that the Trump Administration is doing the exact same thing to Americans.  And that makes no sense whatsoever.

Yet more incessant whinging like a broken record. I don't even care about Trump, Michael - I just love stirring up perpetually offended flowers like yourself who still - STILL - can't get over the fact the he got elected more than three years ago.

And you take the bait every single time.

Like you incessantly whinge about China, Don. I don't care about Trump, really Don. Yeah like you don't care about Pell or Hanson either. Pull the other one Don.

Just merely pointing out that any failings that you have accused Obama of like, Narcissism, well lets say Trump has him covered.

Meh. I don't care about him getting elected Don. That's Democracy. I just love pointing out his failings and the fact that you cannot mount a decent argument against any of them. And that frustrates the hell out of you.

Yeah, you can't even.

Anyhow the back on the topic of yankee politics rather than Don's incessent whining, they sure are stuck up smeg creek without a paddle! 2 Racist Rapists with the same rhetoric of 'keeping America great' or 'returning to normal'. Same crap just under a different skin, 'nothing fundamentally changing', just the political cycle continuing. Highly probable Donald victory, as its a rule breaker VS someone who can't even talk straight!

My fellow posters I leave you with this horrible meme to highlight how similar these 2 old farts are.

I'm not going anywhere, girlfriend.

And geez, I forgot - in the words of that famous Chinese Communist Party agent Paul Keating - if you don't live in Sydney then you're camping out. The rest of the nation is secretly jealous that we don't live in your ghetto, you know that don't you.

One of the things that I really love about your city is the fact that it's so bereft of any decent infrastructure that they still - STILL - pump raw sewage into the Pacific Ocean so if the tide is right you get human excrement washing up onto the shore of your beaches.

JUST one of the many, many things I love about your fine city.

Spot on: I'm secretly jealous of the fact that I don't have to contend with human fecal matter in my hair when I go to the beach.

It always comes as a total shock to the average Sydney-sider when you tell them that you don't really like their city - they can't possibly conceive of places elsewhere in this country where the standard of living is actually better.

  ANR Deputy Commissioner

Don, I am totally with you on that one, and I have often found that some fellow posters here feel personally offended when I tell them that housing is very affordable outside the cities and there are hundreds if not thousands of locations they could call home. No traffic, just fresh air and open space.

Too much money is being thrown down the toilet on crap projects like football stadiums Swiss cheese roads and rail in the cities. Sydney and Melbourne are maxed out. Their status as state capitals should be reexamined because they are one trick ponies swallowing up large infrastructure budgets with little benefit.

I would never move back to a city and don't regret my move one bit. I wish I could have exited sooner. Life is too short to wait at certain traffic lights and queue in heavy traffic every day even for the shortest journeys.

As if we need any more proof how backwards you are, turds have been eliminated from Bondi since the 1990's. Treated sewage (99% water) is discharged miles offshore nowadays and becomes so highly diluted that it is almost imperceptible.

But you still think they exist, probably because your mummy once told you so.

Wrong.

Marorubra's main eastern outfall was moved further off-shore by the Carr government but didn't solve the problem of the untreated sewage of the 1.7 million people it services washing up on shore affecting the health of the people who use those beaches.

There's also a host of smaller plants that continue to cause localized problems: The main offender is the relatively small plant that services Diamond Bay and Vaucluse that dumps untreated sewage right into the Pacific leading to things like plastics and baby wipes washing up around those shores as well as visible plumes of sewage - they don't even bother to do basic screening. In 2020 nothing has been done to prevent that practice because its only considered a relatively small scale problem - and it still regularly contaminates as far down as Bondi.

And moving the main eastern outfall further off shore didn't fix the problem: Maroubra's very large outfall still regularly contaminates those south eastern beaches when the tide is right; in fact at Xmas time only a few months ago those beaches were all closed due to sewage outfall contamination. And it's nowhere near properly treated: you could see the baby wipes and faecal matter washing right up on the shore apparently - that's despite the fact that the outfall had been moved three km's off-shore.




EDIT: This sign is at Vaucluse in case you're wondering -

Check the difference between "sewage" and "sewerage". Sewage flows in a sewerage system.

Yeah I've been mixing it up without due regard for the Queen's English. But you get the idea: How on earth Sydney is still allowed to dump completely untreated waste directly into the ocean in this day and age is incomprehensible.

Don, if what you say is correct and I have NFI. And sewage is dispersed from the sewerage system @ Vaucluse and Diamond bay, what’s the issue, silver tail smeg doesn’t smell.

Don, I read the same info from the same website; you either lazily copy/pasted some of the text or wrote it down verbatim.

At least you did some basic research this time instead of your normal cod-gob efforts, even though you drew your own conclusions.

The washed up baby wipes happened in 2011.

The Diamond Head/Vaucluse outfalls are slated for closure later this year, or didn't you know that either?

DirtyBallast
Nah, you haven't read enough - the latest incidents with baby wipes was only at Xmas time, that's why Coogee and Maroubra were closed then. Admittedly that only happens occasionally since the outfall was moved but it does still happen. I don't copy/paste - I read up about stuff and this happens to be something I've taken an interest in for some years just because the practice is so disgusting. Dirty old Sydney...

Vaucluse - who knows if that will actually close - it's just a matter of redirecting that wealthy suburb excreta into the main Eastern outfall at Maroubra - which will continue to pollute up and down that coastline when conditions are right. So really all they're doing is combining that outfall with the Eastern outfall and making that problem worse.

That the main eastern outfall still exists is still a ridiculous anathema in the 21st century - it was moved to 3.6km off-shore by the Carr government but the sheer amount of sewage being discharged (499 m/l a day @ 82 meters depth, which will be made worse as the population expands) means that the dissipation simply doesn't happen quickly enough. Remember that's only partly-treated - 'effluent'.

Surprisingly Melbourne is one place that gets it right - in fact Boags Rocks sewage outfall on the Mornington Peninsula (on the Bass Strait side) releases water treated to such a high standard that it contains no bacteria at all. That's thanks to the fact that Melbourne Water spent big $$$ at the Eastern Treatment Plant to get it right - why couldn't Sydney do the same?

Indeed, Melbourne treatment is "best pratice".
Aside from the yuck factor, the treated water could go back into the water supply ie: drinking.

Not surprising, it happens worldwide (eg the Murray) , except Sideney.
