  • BG Debate :: Detention Centre Crisis

    I'll get the ball rolling, as requested by Beefy.

    Australia's treatment of asylum seekers has sparked protests at home and debate abroad. What's your say?

    I think these people in the detention centres should watch what they are saying and stop their complaining. Australia has accepted them into our country from the countries they are fleeing from, and what thanks do we get? Yes us, our tax money is feeding them and clothing them.

    Have your say!

    Quite frankly I think they should be put on the 1st plane back to where they come from as soon as they get here. <img src="http://members.optushome.com.au/wiggo100/Mad_anim.gif">

          i'm with wiggo too

          we take refuge here, then they expect us to give them visas straight away, and when it takes a bit of time, they torch some of the buildings and start riots etc..

            You got me started now, I have a very strong opinion on assylum seekers:

            FIRST OF ALL THEY COME TO OUR COUNTRY AND START BURNING THE PLACE, DO WE GO TO THEIR COUNTRY AND BURN DOWN ALL THEIR BUILDINGS? NO (well, bombing is different). THE FIRST THING WE NEED TO DO IS PUT THEM BACK ON THE BOAT THEY CAME HERE ON AND WELD THEIR RUDDER SO THEY CAN'T TURN AROUND, GIVE THEM ENOUGH PETROL TO GET HOME AND SEND THEM BACK TO SEE, AND IF THEIR BOAT ALREADY SANK, WELL, DROWN THE ****ERS!


            THEY ARE ALL GOING ON HUNGER STRIKES, NOT A PROBLEM TO ME, LET THEM STARVE, DON'T EVEN ACNOLOGE THEM. IF THEY STITCH THEIR LIPS SHUT, WE SHOULD HELP THEM, PUT A FEW MORE STITCHES THROUGH SO THEY CAN TRULY STARVE. LESS AFGHANS = LESS TAXPAYERS MONEY. THEY THINK THEY ARE LIVING IN HELL BUT THEY ARE LIVING IN LUXURY COMPARED TO THE AFGHANS BACK IN AFGHANLAND OR WHEREVER THEY COME FROM SO GO HOME MOTHER****ERS, COUNTRIES FULL!!!!

            well thats what i think anyway :snip: :snip: :snip:

                Yes, well said Slamo. We have enough of our problems in Australia as it is.

                Bye Bye Afgans! :wave:

                  don't forget Australia is a land of limited water resources, although a big continent a lot of it is desert, although it seems harsh, refugees flooding into Australia is not viable. Controlled immigration is the only way to go :kay:

                    Quite true Kay. Let's sort outselves out first then start looking after the rest!

                      Instead of giving all this $$$ to overseas countries how about looking after Australians first? 6.9% of the Australian workforce is unemployed, how about more money for jobs? What about our f&%ked health system? And our crappy military equipment? Just to name a few :flames:

                        I've been hearing a bit about this topic through NPR.
                        The US has the same problems to a large extent.

                        I really have mixed feelings on the topic - as far as it concerns the USA.
                        On 1 hand I feel like you guys do about it.
                        On the other, America is supposed to be the "big melting pot" a place for everyone.

                        The plaque on the Statue of liberty reads;

                        “Give me your tired, your poor,
                        Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
                        The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
                        Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost, to me,
                        I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


                        I think that is a pretty awesome statement. A corner-stone of American ideals.

                        But yes, it does get old. Bunch of foreigners taking up resources that should go to citizens (after all, citizens need things too).
                        But how can we claim to still be America - "The land of milk and honey" - without acting upon this basic principle?

                        I don't know, like I said, I have very mixed feelings on the topic.

                        This country spends a lot of tax dollars, in addition to a lot of private donations to feed people in 3rd world countries.
                        Why??
                        The climate/ecology there won't allow them to grow enough to feed themselves anyway.
                        Wouldn't it serve everyone's best interest to just bring 80% of their population here, and allow their country to try to make progress at a managable population level?

                        Yeah right! That's just what we need --- 30 million Ethiopians with a free ride! Like we haven't got enough problems.

                        So what are we going to do??
                        Why is the clear moral issue always rubbing up against the financial?
                        I have no real answers:(

                        Perhaps another generation will prove themselves to be wiser, I hope so.
                        The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

                          I think that the stupid turds should stop whining. perhaps you can tow them all down to antartica. ( hmmmm, there's an idea!) as I discovered from my reseach, Austrailia is is almost the same as America in the melting pot matter. Slamo, the Afgans are from Afganistan. stan- land, place. Exmple The land of the Afgans is Afganistan. I think the reason they are being that way is ( read it all before you have a cow!!) because they expected life over there to be different then home. ( Afganistan)

                              I whole heartedly agree to sending them back, they seem to take so much for granted.

                              We have fed, clothed and given them shelter as well as cared for their sick.

                              They expect so much and offer little in return.

                              Maybe these people should look at how they would treat us if the situation was put in reverse and then see how much they are asking of our country!!!! :angry con
