Re: Djokovic took 15th grand slam

That was a great final, Federer certainly had his opportunities to win. Because I am in Australia that was a huge night of sport on TV for me, the tennis, world cup Cricket final and a stage of the Tour of France bicycle race.

Re: Should white people own Chinese restaurants?

I agree with peterlund's comment above. With the obvious qualification that they must be a "fit and proper" person to run the specific business, for example we don't want criminals running gun shops or chemist shops. So as long as persons behave lawfully then there should be no impediment to them st...

Re: Trumptoad announces the start of his re~election campaign

Something perhaps more disturbing than Trumptoad's racist & sexist attack on four very capable, hardworking Democrat lady Members of Congress elected by their constituents & his lack of respect for the democratic process is that there will be people who support his latest outrageous slurs.

Re: Should white people own Chinese restaurants?

Different cuisines are allowed to evolve imho. Isn't that part of the immigrant cuisine changing? Randomiser makes a good point, as long as there is honesty in informing customers what is on offer then there should be no problems. The influences that change a cuisine from one culture in a new countr...

Fulminator/Fluminator. Damn silly player name imho. Spotted a very good player name.. Major Mistake. Starting to think that I should ask the Almighty Mods to change my player name to Major Embarrassment or similar.

Re: Should white people own Chinese restaurants?

I'm probably taking Fulminator too seriously. I'm of the opinion that anyone regardless of race or religion etc should be able to open whatever type of business, including restaurant they want to. Probably the more serious threat to persons running restaurants, or thinking of starting a restaurant i...

Re: Women world cup final soccer

Congratulations to the Women's USA soccer team on winning the world cup. I also hope they win their Court action over pay. If they have won more world cups than the USA men's team and bring in more revenue to the USA soccer federation, then they deserve to be paid more than the men, imho.

Who added pineapple to a "Hamburger with the lot"? I think it might have been us Australians.

Re: Should white people own Chinese restaurants?

Modern Australia is a melting pot of different cultures and races, decades ago when I worked in Sydney there was a local Vietnamese restaurant which offered delicious hamburgers cooked in a Wok. Now there's a great example of a simple food item, the Hamburger transcending several cultures in it's pr...

Re: Should white people own Chinese restaurants?

This is, in my opinion, a pathetic trolling attempt. The way it's presented as a potential conflict between Asians and Europeans is a racist construct imho. I note that it wasn't presented as "should Italians own and run a restaurant serving French cuisine or vice versa" which although involves diff...

England win. Australia finish up in 3rd or 4th place which is probably appropriate for the team they have at the moment.
