"You are correct about who created the stolen generation but what they did was against the law at the time - just because a gov dept makes a policy doesn't mean the policy is legal.  My point was that the people who created that policy…"

"George: The stolen generation was created by the Federal and State Government. The federal and state government aren't similar to people who run red lights. But they sure do have the potential to make streets safer for people."

"The need to have things 5 minutes ago is becoming prevalent in society.  My kids get upset if a web page takes longer than 10 secs to load or an email takes more than 30 secs to arrive at its destination or it takes longer than 4 or 5 days for…"

""The laws don't explicitly state don't crash into other vehicles/people." but they do say that dangerous driving (i.e. putting someone else at risk because of your actions) is illegal. If a crash occurs on the road that involves…"

"To me, THE basic rule of thumb is to both respect and watch out for other road users.  A major part of this is to obey the road rules.  However people have been deemed to be within the law, yet have still injured or killed other road…"

"Doddsy your a bad bad man for mentioning Godwin's law.   That led onto Formosa's Law then a couple of really really interesting sites on Fallacious arguments and the use of propaganda in arguments and I have work to do."

"Invoking Godwin's Law purposefully doesn't work. And its never been illegal to have Aboriginal parents and its never been illegal to be bought up by aboriginal parents.  The stolen generation was created by people who thought they…"

"In the suburbs I rarely get passed by another cyclist on the left when I am commuting they mostly the wait for a gap in the traffic and pass on the right. In the CBD it's fairly common that I get passed on the left by other cyclists.  It…"

"Yes, really! Cross Roads isn't too bad, it starts toward the Greenhill Rd end of King William Rd then gets progressively worse as I approach the CBD where the number of cyclists increase. I think the dangerous passing is prompted by slower…"

Edward @bikeadelaide replied to Jake Holmes's discussion Red Lights
"Exactly right. We should remember that all of those signs, lines on the road and traffic lights were put there slowly over time to keep cars in check - not bicycles. They are necessary because of the danger that cars expose us to. That is why…"

"People do not have the right to cross the road or railway if the lights are red, neither legally or morally. We know people do, we know that 99.9% of the members of this group have done so, some more than others but very few would encourage such…"
