Too many

Via Andrew Bolt, we see that in November we had 920 illegal boat arrivals – a record.

At that pace, that would be around 11,000 per year.

Considering Australia has set a target total of a little under 14,000 humanitarian visas, this doesn’t leave much room for anyone else who needs a humanitarian visa and who is trying to do the right thing.

The do-gooders have to realise that for every boat arrival, some other poor soul somewhere else misses out on their chance to make a new start in Australia.

And fer cryin’ out loud, people have (presumably) come to Australia to escape their old, worse life. So why on earth would they and/or should they want their own courts?

It smacks of not really wanting to live in Australia but rather change Australia into something analogous to what they left.

Institutions such as the established Koori courts and the proposed Koranic courts along with other special treatments for some only serve to divide our diverse nation.

I don’t know who said it, but it was something along the lines of great civilisations often aren’t killed by external forces.

Rather, they suicide.

  1. Whenever I read something about the massive influx of immigration into a country (such as Oz or the colonies), I ask myself 2 questions:

    #1 – Why would the new immigrants want to change what they came for?
    #2 – How many would have been saved on the Titanic if they had crammed all 2600+ people into the available life boats?

  1. No trackbacks yet.

Surely you're thinking something...
