This is Hieu Van Le, A vietnamese refugee who came to Australia in the 70s who is now the Governor of South Australia. My favourite part of this story is where he recounts his entry to Australia: 

"Living in a refugee camp was one of the most horrific experiences one can go through," he said of the experience.
He boarded another leaky vessel to try for Australia, nervous of being turned away. But the fears proved to be unfounded. He says he still recalls the greeting he received from a pair of fisherman in a small boat off Darwin Harbour.
"One of the guys raised a stubby up as if proposing a toast. ‘G’day mate,’ he shouted. ‘Welcome to Australia’." (X)

This is the Australia I know and love, not the country that embraces a shitty racist refugee policy that locks desperate people in a multi-billion dollar prison.


This makes me feel so sad. We have so much we could be giving to these people, and I’m sure they all have lots they could give back if our shitty government would just calm the fuck down and let them in.

    It’s DONE! 

    Here is the second installment of a fantastic comic by Shouko. I cant really take credit for this. This translation is brought to you by Mintsui's godlike japanese language prowess. Shouko herself also helped out with some difficult words. 


    Enjoy! There can never be enough comics and stories about Sunny and Raiden.

    I don’t know how to make Nassau any more Nassau-ish. I’m drawing a flag & I’ve made my profile tag line “A merry life & a short one,” (from a larger quote by Captain Bartholomew Roberts) and I’m making my town flag a jolly roger. Currently it’s Robert’s figure & death holding an hourglass but I may go the lazy route and use Rackham’s iconic skull and crossed swords.

    This is amazing. I wouldn’t have the heart to do it myself, but amazing nonetheless.

    Amy Poehler just schooled Neal Brennan on what it’s like to be a woman with one sentence 

    Oh, Amy. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways. 

    For one, she can make a feminist argument zing like a “Weekend Update” punchline, a skill she demonstrated as a recent guest on The Approval Matrix, the Sundance Network’s new panel show. During her interview, Poehler was asked about modern men and the difficult challenges men face.

    Poehler has never been shy about women’s issues | Follow micdotcom

    villainfr:

    First of all, how dare you, my ancestors are 100% pure Danish.
    Or Irish. 
    Or Scottish.
    Or something.
    I don’t know.
    But I DO know that my blood didn’t come alive until my first Eurosomething ancestor frolicked from the Mayflower onto American soil and claimed that land for his own.
    And then was like, OK, all you people who were here first, you just move on somewhere else.
    And then was shot through the head with an arrow.
    But luckily his shipwife, Lady Witherfree, was pregnant with his or possibly the ship’s captain’s baby, and gave birth to my great great great great something. 
    And that is who I evolved from, thank you very much.

    devotedslothminion asked Aha! But most of the Scottish immigrants came from the Highland Clearances, which happened AFTER the Jacobite rebellion which happened AFTER the Union of the Crowns, which was in 1603. I might add that the Great (Irish) Famine, which was also a great source of emigration, happened in the 19th Century. Also, I am Scottish you fool.

    I get the feeling you don’t know much about Scottish history, old friend.

    According to that second Gif, William Wallace was of Gondor

    It was both as fun as it was frustrating. Sunny is a little badass since she basically gets Ellie’s spot.
