In veiled shot at Trump, Rex Tillerson warns democracy at risk

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson took a veiled shot at President Donald Trump on Wednesday, warning that a growing national crisis of ethics and integrity has put American democracy at risk.

In remarks to graduates of the Virginia Military Institute, Tillerson lamented assaults on facts that he said would lead to a loss of freedom if not countered. And he said that only societies able to pursue the truth and challenge alternate realities

ABC Brisbane I want to have a good reason for continuing to follow you on Facebook but posts like this make it very difficult indeed

You might find this a useful study about missing teaspoons.. www.bmj.com/content/331/7531/1498

Same here, every day hey Kath O'Keefe

Same at my work, knives make good coffee stirrers though which is good

In life you will realize there is a role for everyone to meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it's worth it.

Get to the nearest op shop!

Which is why I have my own personal set of cutlery.

Can I have them for our kitchen where the knives are always the first one to go.. Agree with those though who'd rather see, you know, Brisbane news, than office jokes. Ta.

How long are you willing to line up for cheap fuel?

A service station on the Gold Coast is selling unleaded for 99c/Litre.

This is the line up!

Waste a tonne of fuel and time, in addition to causing traffic chaos. Yep awesome.

Not at all. If I see a queue I'm driving on because next station will be near empty, happy to pay a few cents extra and save a lot of time and aggravation.

Not that long . I have better things to do. Besides, with my luck, they would run out of fuel as I got to the pump. :-)

Ok if you live down Coast. No point driving 50 - 100 km or so just for cheap fuel. End up costing you more in the end.

Filled up for $1.35 at the servo next door to my work. The last servo in Ipswich to put their prices up methinks. Winning.

I don't think all of them are lined up for fuel. Some of them probably think that's the queue for the roundabout 🤣

What's the diesel price? Also why is truck diesel regularly 2cents/L cheaper than the same diesel for my little VW?

Keeping out of a stressful situation in the que is more important to me than a couple of $ at the pump.

Waste of fuel, so oil companies still win.

Poor desperados... I got it cheaper in Brisbane this morning! And didn’t have to queue...

How long before monitoring turns into actioning???? And what about Diesel users ???

Line up for ages to save $36 or do 1 hr overtime to make an extra $36....

Price board says different?

👍

That is not cheap.

Where is this

Where is this

It finished at 1

Not that long.

$1.50+/l. F*ckem.

These three bots are all called Paul and while they don't know the features of the human face, they can mimic different artistic styles to create amazingly accurate drawings. They also learn as they draw, so your portrait can get better and better!
