I COME FROM A LAND DOWN UNDER …where rights are ripped asunder.
Actually, it’s rather ironic that the catchy song from which I took the above headline, “The Land Down Under,” is written and sung by the band “Men at Work”.
Why is that ironic? Because right now men in Australia are decidedly NOT at work. They are instead on the sofa, attached to the WiFi, their rights stripped from them under the ridiculous guise of a pandemic, unless, of course, they’re deemed by some pointy-shoe beaurocrat as “essential”.
