I literally know people who are like "oh come on, it's not like they're torturing those kids." This is who we've become. We're the country that like, doesn't torture those kids. (For the record, separating kids unwillingly and forcibly from their parents, that's torture.)

US inventors were issued almost twice as many biotech patents last year as inventors from the rest of the world combined. This intellectual primacy will only endure if the US promotes scientific education, immigration and basic research funding.

This is a lie. There is no law. There is no court mandate. This is a policy made solely by this administration, and you can stop it right now. And every second you don’t you are directly responsible for unimaginable amounts of misery. Period.

If the ALP cannot come out and say they will save the 1200 people in offshore detention then they are not electable. It is not a lot of people and will not make one difference to Australian lives other than saving the taxpayer countless millions to keep them offshore. Really.
