Australian Government Communications Minister, Senator Conroy speaking at the Columbia Institute for TeleInformation, in New York:
"I’m in charge of spectrum auctions. And if I say to you, everyone in this room, if you want to bid next week in our spectrum auctions you better wear red underpants on your head, I’ve got some news for you, you’ll be wearing them on your head. I have unfettered legal power.’
He’s simply stating a fact about the power of the Aussie government to do as it wishes.
From an EXCELLENT article from "The Pursuit of Happiness" Blog
"Why it’s OK to Smoke, Drink and Play Frisbee"
Excerpts of this fabulous article
"I’ll focus on how the government wants to restrict your pursuit of happiness.
Rather than trying to kill you by sending you to fight their live-ammo war games, they’re trying to kill your mind too.
Their aim is to create an obedient race of humans. They want drones. They want you to say and do whatever they tell you. ......
.....Well, it’s the right for smokers not to have the government preaching at them. It’s the right to not have to look at those images just because they decide to take part in the legal activity of smoking. It would be the equivalent of forcing car companies to print pictures of hideous car accidents on the bonnet of your car…or forcing restaurants to put a photo on the top of every meal of fat people dying of obesity.
