Only in Australia

It’s not easy being an Old Nutter. Growing old is not for the young.


Only in Australia 😂😅😓


Ok so 53818 of you CLAIM to be Aussies, well we now know each of us is just acting and by god we are doing a good job of it! Keep up the good work my fellow ‘Aussies’.

Also don’t forget to join the BACK TO BASICS EVENT starting in the morning kick some fat to the curb!!!

We received this email today. Please reblog 🤗

2019 could be the year we take back the Internet.

Almost 40 anti-net neutrality members of Congress were defeated in the midterm elections. We have allies poised to act at the state and federal level to overrule Ajit Pai’s repeal of net neutrality. We have plans to run ads, organize protests, and mobilize massive online pressure.

But there’s one problem: we currently don’t have the funds we need to execute those plans and win.

After a critical year fighting to stop Ajit Pai’s repeal of net neutrality, our war chest is severely depleted. If we don’t have a serious influx of funding in the next three days, we will start the new year in a fundraising hole at the worst possible time. But the good news is that we have generous donors who are willing to DOUBLE your donation if you give before midnight on December 31.

Fight for the Future is facing a year-end fundraising shortfall at the worst possible time, with the Internet in maximum danger. Will you rush a donation right now to help meet our year-end fundraising goal? Your donation will be MATCHED 100%.

In the last year, we turned outrage at the FCC’s repeal of net neutrality into a political force to be reckoned with.

At the start of the year, media were declaring net neutrality dead, despite more than 80% public support for the Open Internet Order.1,2

But our Battle For The Net campaign channeled the public consensus into effective political action that pressured the Senate to vote to overrule the FCC. Then on Election Day, voters made their displeasure known by defeating a wave of Big Cable-funded, anti-net neutrality members of Congress.

Now we’re suddenly in a position to bring the backlash to Capitol Hill and fight to make net neutrality the law of the land.

We’re building new Internet campaigning tools and crafting new strategies to channel political power for Internet freedom in 2019. Here’s just a taste of what we have in mind:

Keep up the fight for net neutrality and beat back any so-called “compromise” bill Big Cable might propose to pre-empt strong action,
Secure a win on Internet privacy by educating the public about how their data are used against them and holding big tech firms accountable,
Stop anti-consumer media mergers like the one pending between Sprint and T-Mobile, and
Defend our most basic rights in the digital age, ensuring that technology is used to expand free expression and democracy, rather than trample it.
I won’t lie—these are ambitious goals.
That’s why we can’t afford to kick off the year behind on our fundraising goals. But that’s what we’re looking at now, unless supporters like you step up before New Year’s Eve.

It’s this simple: without sufficient funding, we’ll have to cut back on some or all of these priorities. We don’t want to let that happen, so that’s why we’re asking so directly.

Will you make a donation today to make sure we have the funding we need to fight for the free and open internet in 2019? Your donation will be DOUBLED by generous donors.

For the Internet,

Sarah at Fight for the Future

Two girls aged 8 and 10 years old indecently assaulted at Cronulla beach while swimming

Two girls aged eight and 10 were swimming when it’s alleged the man touched them inappropriately.

NSW Police have commended lifeguards who detained a man after he allegedly molested two young children in the surf at a Sydney beach.

Two girls aged eight and 10 were swimming at North Cronulla beach about 4pm on Friday when they noticed an unknown man swimming nearby, police said.

The 60-year-old man allegedly swam closer to the girls before touching them both inappropriately.

A member of the public, who allegedly watched the man approach the kids and touch them in the surf, believed he was not a family member and thought it was suspicious.

She alerted lifeguards who came and watched before deciding to converge on the man.

He was taken from the surf and detained on the beach until police arrived.

Chief Inspector Gary Ford said the daylight attack was “very unusual” and “out of character” for the area.

He commended the actions of the woman and the lifeguards.

“They’ve done a great job obviously going down there and observing what he was doing and then detained him there until the police arrived,” he told reporters at Cronulla on Saturday.

“We all need to be responsible for our actions. It’s not something that should be occurring in the area and people should treat people with respect.”

Ch Insp Ford said the suspect, who was charged with intentionally sexually touching a child under 10 years and intentionally sexually touching a child between 10 and 16 years, was not known to police.

He was released on conditional bail before his next appearance in court on February 7.

The children are now recovering with their family.

“My understanding is they’re fine, they’re okay and back with their family,” Ch Insp Ford said.
