Re: Byron Bay bans jet skis

Lennox Head Tow-in Surfers Association spokesman Warren Cornish said. jeepers fricken creepers.... the fact that that such an organisation like this exists blows my tiny mind and underlines how pervasive the tow-in thing has become.

It is foolish and dangerous to think and say that freedoms were won through war. The freedom won through war is the rarest exception: it is the rule for war to curtail the freedoms of all concerned. War ruins individuals physically, psychologically and socially. It corrupts societies by making them...
