Yay.. We got the new place. We get the keys on the 18th of June.
Sigh... The ALP also supports banning gay marriage...
One more reason to get rid of John Howard. This makes me think of why we need laws. I think the following quote is good (taken from here)

...who really cares what you do so long as you do not cause harm to others (including doing harm to their property), and keep your agreements?

Granted, there are people who may want you to believe as they do, act in a manner consistent with their beliefs and desires, and otherwise submit to their authority in all or most all matters of consequence. In other words, there are people who want slaves in one form or another -- but who likely do not wish to become slaves themselves.

The enlightened view is to tolerate the varied pursuits of happiness employed by others (so long as they do not cause injury to still others), rejoice in the diversity of human creativity in following their oftentimes strange or perplexing dreams, and recognize the fundamental stability of a society which sees chaos, even Anarchy and/or Revolution, as opportunity, liberty, and freedom of choice.
