    Private Parts, you’re still here?

  2. jumpnmcar

    IGNORE the lying fuckhead.
    Please.

  3. No rounds in the chamber, no rounds in the mag, springs eased and safety on, per normal procedures for handing to anyone

    So these things are so safe, that you need to set them up in a condition which prevents them from doing what they were designed to do – fire a projectile at 2,800 feet (853 meters) per second.

    Nuff said……

    My, my. You have been drinking the bong water again, child. Please tell me more about the ‘Walmart-full-o-gun-debbildebbils’ you have there in Toowoomba.

    I can’t believe that Mk50 really believes that Walmart operates in Toowoomba.
    On second thought, given what he usually posts, anything’s possible.

  4. squawkbox

    IGNORE the lying fuckhead.
    Please.

    I do try, but it’s like not picking at scabs. He is such a caricature leftist consumed by his own bile and self-pity. I promise not to mention him or his posts again for at least another week. Baby steps :-)

  5. srr

    So lets talk about your 30,000, mostly, crims killing crims, compared to 100,000 babies being killed by doctors, as ordered by women and paid for by tax payers against their will.

    Or if that’s too hard for you to juggle, how about the rise in every social evil coinciding with the acceptance of and rise in abortions on demand, as normal.

    Yes numbers, less people want to kill themselves and others when more people revere human life as sacred.

    Sad, and rather telling, how many numbers you wildly toss around trying to avoid that one, simple, primary equation.

    I see, you see, we all see you, Numbers. Avoiding, dodging, like a dodgy coward….

    Delingpole is not on about the ABC but if the quote fits:

    “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical”. Thomas Jefferson, 1779

    My favourite Jefferson quote. It also applies to taxpayer funded political advertising.

  7. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Stalin’s butt-boy:

    If you’re uncomfortable with the M16A1, you can substitute a Bushmaster Carbine M4A3, a Sig Sauer M400 or a Colt M4 OPS, all available at your local Walmart.

    Hmm, and my moniker is Mk50 of Brisbane

    Caught out again by his own lousy grammar and by his delusion that Australia is located int eh USA, he resorts to … well to incontinent babbling, basically.

    The little racist git again:

    So these things are so safe, that you need to set them up in a condition which prevents them from doing what they were designed to do

    Which was not the question asked. That was ‘would I hand an automatic firearm (not available to civilians in Australia or in the USA) to an eight year old. I answered yes, I have actually done this on quite a few occasions at ADF public displays. It’s a hell of a lot of fun and the kids just love it. And we follow exactly the same standard procedure in regulations each time. They are the same procedures used when passing a firearm from one person to another, entering a secure area post-patrol, retuning a firearm to or drawing one from teh armoury, entering a vehicle etc etc. Why would I not follow SOP?

    And this makes you all weepy, child. Poor little Numbers.

  8. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Not very PC these day though.

    I’ve just generated one for Da Hairy Ape, who has emerged from his man-cave to make his own cup of tea, which I promised to him an hour ago.

    Make one for me too, you muddy commoner, I ordered queenly from the sofa.
    He looks a little startled. I’d better go and tell him I’m being Shakespearian.
    And offer to assist. And retract.

  11. blogstrop

    At what stage does the commission into sexual abuse by institutions have a close look at Islam?

  12. C.L.

    A Certificate in Grandpaology?

    Struggling grandparents call for more flexible childcare system.

    The peak organisation for older Australians says grandparents filling holes in the childcare system are exhausted and more needs to be done to make the system flexible…

    The group’s chief executive Ian Yates says they have found grandparents need more support, with some calling for short training courses and a more flexible formal childcare system that adapts to modern working hours.

    Hey, here’s a crazy idea: why don’t women look after their own children … at home?

    Like Grandma did?

  13. They are the same procedures used when passing a firearm from one person to another, entering a secure area post-patrol, retuning a firearm to or drawing one from teh armoury, entering a vehicle etc etc. Why would I not follow SOP?

    This lunatic is actually unable to appreciate the reality that these multiple precautions are necessary because these things are by their very nature, dangerous.

    FFS, they were designed to kill. That’s why they’re carried into battle by soldiers.

    I’ve hosted visits by diggers at my schools, and the kids are always interested in their firearms. That has to be done with care, and parent permission sought first, as many parents in my experience object to their kids handling firearms.

    Unfortunately, there are some young men who are fascinated by guns and death. There’s been a great deal of research into this. I have taught many boys with terminal illnesses or conditions like Muscular Dystrophy, where life doesn’t extend beyond the second decade.

    They are often obsessed with mortality, as an indicator that they have to deal with it sooner and more starkly than most. An obsession with firearms is often part of this pathology.

    This doesn’t mean that every sporting shooter hasn’t developed beyond early adolescence, but the behavioral pattern is clear and stark.

    I observed this same adolescent naivety in many of the Yanks I met in Vietnam. It’s reflected in the way they conceptualize firearms and their place in everyday life. It is vastly different from the way in which the average Australian thinks about guns, but along with much of US mores, the cancer of their insane gun culture is an insidious threat.

    The last thing we need in this country is to import it across the Pacific.

  14. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    He has just plonked down a cup of tea on the coffee table (why not a tea table?) and reminds me we are due out for dinner, leaving at 6 to pick up people on the way.

    Ya’ve got twenty-five minutes ta get ready, he warns me.
    It might be necessary for you to get off dat fairly soon, he says about my laptop on the wide sofa arm.

    He’s being nice because I am the designated driver tonight.

  15. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Funny…. the ABC seems to have missed this story.

    Restrictions, harassment, and intimidation towards people who practice their religion increased in every major region of the world in 2012 except the Americas, with Christians the major target, says a new report by the Pew Research Center.

    “Muslims and Jews experienced six-year highs in the number of countries in which they were harassed by national, provincial or local governments,” the study found, but Christians continue to be the world’s most oppressed religious group, with persecution against them reported in 110 countries.

    A recent report by the Christian group Open Doors noted that “North Korea remains the world’s most restrictive nation in which to practice Christianity,” followed by Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Maldives, Pakistan, Iran and Yemen.

    I wonder why?

  16. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    He’s cracked – he’s getting discursive now.

    That’s why they’re carried into battle by soldiers.

    And they are not available to civilians in the USA or here you gibbering loon.

    Your point is?

    Oh, anti-American bigot, simpering beta-male squealpansy and hoplophobe – I forgot your defining charactaristics there for a moment.

  17. JC

    Hey, here’s a crazy idea: why don’t women look after their own children … at home?

    I’ve never understood it. The most miserable human beings on earth, that I’ve ever had unfortunate experience of working with were “Wall Street mothers” as they liked to call themselves. Every single one of them was miserable because they weren’t with their kids. Having said that though, they also had nannies on the weekends and evenings. :-)

  18. 2dogs

    Clarke and Dawe on Shorten.

    Does anyone know what his current position on asylum seekers is? Does he accept that OSB has been successful?

  19. Tel

    Should Numbers ever visit the US, he will doubtless stay in the South Side of Chicago, which according to his metrics of gun control legislation must be the safest area in the entire country.

    Whip around to buy a ticket?

  20. JC

    One category was worse… NY female lawyers. They would have to be the worst example of humanity in the entire DNA pool, possibly even worse than Australian leftwing academics.

  21. srr

    Fancy Emily’s List leaving this laying around -

    “To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical”. Thomas Jefferson, 1779

    where anyone could stumble over it, lose their one eyed support for abortion, and end up clearly seeing what the abortion industry is actually selling…and stealing.

  22. Your point is?

    It is obvious if you are able to manage more than one concept at a time.
    You can’t, so I’ll explain briefly –

    The last thing we need in this country is to import it (the American gun culture) across the Pacific.
    All else being equal, it would ramp up our firearm death rate by a factor of 20.
    That’s not a good idea.

    Comprenez-vous?

  23. Nic

    Hmm, let’s begin by reviewing the lists of hospitals, schools, orphanages, universities etc open to all as say the Catholics do. Oh wait…..

    This personage is a total dh. Are we sure is not automated?
    My turn to assert a statistic of greater importance.

    Your posts consist of 99.99% (according to the latest verified surveys) total drivel. Please stop consulting the 2 year old prior to posting (maybe it is not a 2 yo, but it certainly has the mind of one). Whatever, go talk to someone while shopping, they will be happy to listen to you while you are spending money.

  28. The last thing we need in this country is to import it (the American gun culture) across the Pacific.
    All else being equal, it would ramp up our firearm death rate by a factor of 20.

    We’d also drop the current “stranger rape” rate to one third of what it is now.
    The “hot burglary” rate would likewise fall through the floor.

    The “alcohol fuelled violence” would be solved (armed society is a polite society, etc)

    The Muslim gangs in Sydney would engage in lots of self-elimination.

    Is there a downside to importing US gun culture?

  29. JC

    The beating continues. Next up, Mark Scott will trot out Andrew Leigh’s taxpayer funded research the ABC is rightwing.

    ANOTHER senior federal government minister has accused the ABC of bias.

    “When I want to know what’s going on in politics I don’t watch the ABC,” Attorney-General George Brandis told Sky News on Sunday, adding to a growing number of coalition members who have criticised the broadcaster’s editorial integrity.

    “It’s almost become a cliche that the ABC has a particular point of view when it comes to public affairs and the coverage of current affairs, which is a centre-left, Labor-Greens, bias point of view.”

    Senator Brandis said the ABC’s flagship current affairs programs have unbalanced panels with only a “token” conservative.

    “It’s the lack of a diversity of opinion that is the principle concern here.”

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Treasurer Joe Hockey and Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce are among those who have expressed concern about unbalanced reporting by the ABC.

    It’s fair to say that there is a level of concern shared, not just by the government, but by the community at large, of the performance of the ABC,” Senator Brandis said.

    No shit Sherlock.

  33. Time to bust a myth or two -

    If the previous Labor government delivered growth in real government spending during its first five years in office at the same pace the Howard government had in the years from 2000-01, government spending would be almost 6% (or around $20 billion) greater in 2012-13 than is the case. If we take these numbers out to eight years, the gap between the big-spending Howard government and the fiscally prudent Labor government gets even wider.

  34. Demosthenes

    The last thing we need in this country is to import it across the Pacific.

    It’s not a consumer good. American gun culture is a unique, unrepeateable product of their history (an example of why discussions about gun laws do not translate across national boundaries). We can’t import it, even if we wanted to. Changing our laws to match those of even the most liberal US state still wouldn’t mean a death toll like theirs, because Australians have their own history and attitude towards guns.

  35. .

    I hope srr’s hopes are upheld:

    Labor’s Terri Butler looks set to take the Brisbane seat of former prime minister Kevin Rudd, but Liberal National Party candidate Bill Glasson has not conceded with some 10,000 pre-poll and postal votes still to be counted.

    By Jove, he may just do it after all!

    Dot
    The Libs need to watch the AEC count like hawks and look where they place the votes otherwise 10,000 votes might just go missing. The libs need to take lots of pics and place their own security guards around the perimeter of the building guarding and taking pics of everyone who exits and enters.

  38. because Australians have their own history and attitude towards guns.

    Not a helluva lot different. Just that modern Australia is so pussified and urbanised that the origins of this nation are lost.

  39. The Libs need to watch the AEC count like hawks and look where they place the votes otherwise 10,000 votes might just go missing.

    Oh yeah, amen to that, otherwise if Bill Glasson starts to get ahead in the count, Santa will deliver another sack of votes for the ALP candidate.

  40. .

    The origins are racist! We didn’t let the French take over!

    I reckon if Abbott recalled Australia Day reconciliation day, it would take out the relentless negativity from the black armband wearing, “invasion day” brigade.

    We can always change back to Australia Day when these idiots have frittered away their DSP or family wealth.

  43. Tel

    A quick check on Wikipedia indicates that Howard was in office 11 March 1996 – 3 December 2007.

    … at the same pace the Howard government had in the years from 2000-01 …

    It seems that one particular year has been picked here out of a term in office of ten and a half years. I clicked on the link and noticed it was written by Stephen Koukoulas, so you know it’s not biased or anything.

    http://www.tradingeconomics.com/charts/australia-government-spending.png?s=australiagovspe&d1=19950101&d2=20141231

    Looks like an almost straight line to me. The source claims “Constant Prices, SA”.

    This could explain why mortgage interest rates shot up to 9.6% as a result of the excessive government spending of the Howard government while today, they are just above 6%.

    Or perhaps the world wide economic downturn where interest rates dropped in every developed nation might be something to do with it. Kind of strange that the Howard government was able to control mortgage rates in the USA, but as I mentioned earlier, this was written by Stephen Koukoulas.

    Does that guy do Global Warming stand up? Can he explain why CO2 warms the earth to deliver freezing winters? Makes ships visiting Antarctica get stuck in the ice which melted already.

    I noticed the Sack in Black’s article in the Weekend Australian Magazine is titled Sex. Do we have to?

    It starts

    SPIKE Milligan once gave me his views on sex – and was particularly critical of the placement of the sexual organs.

    He deemed the whereabouts of testicles as a bad mistake. “Not only most inconvenient but vulnerable to accident or attack. Sometimes uncomfortable while you’re walking. And the penis is hard to get at when you need a quick pee.” When I asked him how he’d improve things, Spike was not politically correct. “I’d combine the penis with the forefinger and have the vagina on the female’s shoulder.” What would be the advantage? “Well, you could go up to a woman at a bus stop, tap her on the shoulder and ask her when the next one to Fulham was coming. And get information and sexual gratification at the same time.”

    Didn’t read past that because the rest would have been the Sack in Black’s own work and is unbearable gave me a headache.

  51. 2dogs

    What are the units on that graph, Tel?

    IIRC, spending was about $210b when the GST came in 2000/1, Costello’s last was $260b in 2007, and Swan’s last was $400b.

    I can’t match those up to your units. Are they some kind of average or constant base?

  52. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    Hope you are right, SRR. Glasson deserves to win. I still think he will fall short, but sometimes odd things happen.

  53. Brian of Moorabbin

    Point 1.
    Remember how Numbers tried to belittle Mk50 with his typo earlier?

    This does not diminish the sacrifice of those who survived and those who did did (sic), but it may prevent future tragedies.

    Numbers obviously does not understand what a fragile see-through silica-based housing feature he dwells inside…

    Point 2.

    Maybe the digger who’s lower leg was left hanging by bloody sinew when an AD from an Armalite sent twenty rounds into it, and was subsequently RTAd imagined the whole thing.

    Is that the friendly fire incident from the falsified AAR that you claim you were physically threatened into supporting by the entire division?

    Curious?

    Here’s the answer.

  67. Leigh Lowe

    That disgraceful bint Jessica Rowe repeated the “burnt hands” claim on Channel 10 this morning. They were discussing whether Mark Scott should be given the arse and the whole panel (Ita Buttrose, Joe Hildebrand, Sarah Harris, and the bint herself) agreed what a sound chap he was and, of course should keep his job.
    Rowe then said that there was “a second report in Fewfacts, so maybe there’s something to it”. To his credit, even soft lefty Joe pulled her up, reminding her that it was the same source, this source wasn’t present when the alleged event took place and has constantly changed his story.
    They are lying shits who will do anything to keep this slander alive.
    Although, this is the Channel which ridiculed VC winner Ben Roberts-Smith, calling him a dumb-arse because he had a muscular frame.

    On the subject of food, we (the Beautiful Lady Jugulum & I) have enjoyed a carpetbag steak, (a porterhouse stuffed with squid & chilli) served with buttered mushrooms.

    I had 2 minute noodles, a can of coke, a pack of liquid nutri grain and some leftover tuna casserole. Washed it down with a full bodied brandy, a reserve too boot – Mc Williams.

  76. Is that the friendly fire incident from the falsified AAR that you claim you were physically threatened into supporting by the entire division?

    Just a few points Brian (although I don’t know why I bother – they’re wasted on one so thick).

    1. Is that the friendly fire incident No. this was an accident that happened on a TAOR patrol. The digger who had the AD had his M-16 on full auto when he meant to have the selector on “safe”. The positions are 180 degrees opposed.
    2. you claim you were physically threatened No – you’ve pulled that out of your backside. I have never made such a claim.
    3. by the entire division? The whole Australian contingent comprised a Task Force. I’m not sure, but I doubt that the concept of “division” existed at the time. Maybe you meant “brigade”, but the mind boggles at the idea of a unit larger than (for example) a battalion somehow conspiring to concoct a false AAR involving a company move. Why, FFS, would they care?
    God help the citizens of your state if your understanding of the structure and organization of the force to which to you apparently belong resembles your loopy view of the military.

    LL – the north side of Adelaide is a weird place. On the northern side of Park Terrace (Salisbury North, the Elizabeths, up to Smithfield Plains) you have this sort of very poor (by choice) ex-Pommie-whinger-immigrant/poor white trash/multi-generational dole bludger/soft-drugs-and-bonk-your-sister subcultural mix.

    For your homework Mk50, can you compare and contrast the culture North of Park Terrace with that South of South Terrace.

    My 2nd eldest son did the selection course for the Chief of Army Cadet Challenge at Kapooka during the holidays. On the third morning they were given “their” F88 which was not allowed to leave their side for the duration.
    Apparently the rules are no photos to be taken of the cadet holding their weapon as this would give the impression the Army is trying to churn out “child soldiers”.
    Nearly fell over laughing when I heard but it strikes me as another way the left has pussified things.

    Thanks to smuggled iphones we have our photos though and the lad did rather well.

    Sadly, when we throw out the ABC, we will also throw out Landline, and then the city will have Absolutely No Idea about the country,
    Agree, and except for their ‘carbon’ insanity year before last it is almost a balanced show.
    The question is however, why does ‘their’ not put it on at 7:30 one night a week. Does showing real people with morals, enetrprise and initiative so offend the collective.

    To be truthful I embellished a little.

    Only a little. I’m actually going to imbibe a little JW Black or Blanton’s whilst I do some real work and fantasise that Torah Bright is not a Mormon and also significantly more intelligent.

    If this is true and the child doesn’t survive (hopefully he will), the the parent should face manslaughter charges;

    “A 12-year-old skateboarder is in a coma after falling while being towed behind a car driven by his father in Sydney’s inner west.

    Police say the boy and two teenage friends were on skateboards and holding onto the back of a moving car at Marrickville last night.

    None of the trio was wearing safety helmets.

    The man’s son lost his grip and hit the road, fracturing his skull and causing bleeding on the brain.

    He remains in an induced coma in Randwick Children’s Hospital and his condition is described as critical.

    Inspector Darren Smith says it is not known how fast the car was travelling.

    “It’s a relatively quiet street in Marrickville but speeds are unknown at this stage,” he said.”

    Because they are more tolerant than they lead on. I wasn’t aware of the what the conservative point of view was until I read this blog, which I’ve frequented for much longer than most of the conservatives I observed.

    They would rather the “harsh” treatment of sending the boats back. The purpose of which is to save lives lost at sea (a truly horrible way to die, IMO).

    The lefties have it all wrong. They’ve tried to start a supercharged political bulldozer with water and fouled the tank.

    Yep, a great victory for the ALP (who will now be shitting bricks along with peanut head because they realise from here in, it all downhill for them).
    “It’s only a flesh wound”, eh numbers?

    “Despite outpolling the former prime minister Kevin Rudd on first preferences in September 2013, he was beaten on the strength of Green preferences.

    His 2014 by-election tilt – triggered by Mr Rudd’s resignation – looks destined to travel the same course.

    Griffith is now a marginal seat for Labor, he told reporters.

    I reckon if Abbott recalled Australia Day reconciliation day, it would take out the relentless negativity from the black armband wearing, “invasion day” brigade.

    Sadly, when we throw out the ABC, we will also throw out Landline, and then the city will have Absolutely No Idea about the country*

    Just contract it out to one of the FTA commercial channels. I have it on good authority that the ABC Rural crew are looked down on by their betters in the rest of the ABC** Someone like WIN or would snap at it. In fact I am pretty sure the only reason such a program does not already exist in the commercial word is that it is already provided by the ABC. The technical term is ‘crowding out’

    *Nobody in the city watches landline except wistful department of agriculture public servants yearning for the day they win lotto so they can buy a property and farm until all the money is gone.

    **mind you, just like the rest of the ABC, you can guess the stance of any story.
    Default one: Dear old girl so sweet that butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth had done by by heartless nasty government/bank who won’t give her a handout helping hand. All done in a patronising fashion of course.

    Hey!

    Easy.

    Bogan serial killers who knock off the rellies (and pop ‘em in a barrel full of acid) to steal their dole to the north, Adelaide elite serial killers and hyper-perverts to the south who dispose of their victims through the hospital system’s incinerators to the south.

  105. pete m

    I don’t think either side can take much from the Griffith election result.

    1. K Rudd – a sitting member usually builds up a bit of personal vote, so when they leave and cause a by-election so soon after saying they’d go 3 years, it is hard for their party to retain that personal vote.
    2. Glasson – ran awesome campaigns and built a solid personal vote from being a contender.

    Both of these factors would add to a LNP swing to it.

    Against that is the usual anti-government swing that a first by-election sees – buyers remorse, job done, keep them honest etc.

    This factor would have lessened the size of the swing to the LNP.

    So given the above factors, a swing to LNP up to 2% primary is neither here nor there.

    I don’t see it as a vote of confidence in Abbott, nor against Shorten.

    The electorate is still recovering from politics over-drive and to argue some sort of mood trend just yet is premature.

    Let’s wait for post budget period and see how hard the cuts hurt, and then some.

    Love it!

    If you haven’t noticed the new motto at the top right-hand corner of the Cat, it has been changed from “Australia’s leading centre-right blog”.

    The owner is making a market-share play.

    There is nowhere in the Australian blogosphere for anyone who isn’t a leftist fucktard howler monkey to be informed about and discuss politics and economics. The Cat aims to fill this yawning market gap.

    The left has lost control of the narrative.

    My advice is to commercialise it with advertising, Sinc. This can be done without annoying a single reader. Good design can deliver revenue to the Cat so it no longer has to be a volunteer labour of love and can be an independent commercial entity.

    Police have also charged a 17-year-old boy with the torture and sexual assault of an 18-year-old man at a Southport address on February 7.
    Police will allege an 18-year-old Kingston man was at the Southport address when he was restrained then assaulted physically and sexually.
    The 17-year-old is the fourth person to be charged in relation to this incident.
    He is due to appear tomorrow at the Southport Magistrates Court charged with torture, assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and sexual assault whilst armed in company.

    For the past month, The Australian has had article after article attacking the ALPBC. An Australian editorial claimed the ALPBC pushes a left/green agenda. And that’s the politics at play here as News Corp would have us see them: the ALPBC, the greens and the left on one side – the mass of ordinary decent Australians on the other.
    That argument is fake. Phoney. Bullshit. Polls show that the mass of ordinary decent Australians have consistently shown regard for the ALPBC

    Don’t ya just love it?

    Anyone who thinks the ALPBC is beyond regard (i.e. hates it) is not an “ordinary decent Australian”.

    Right – listen here, you lobotomised hippie deadshit (BIRM).

    Not knocking Adelaide, Eddystone. It is what it is after 40 years of the best and brightest legging it for elsewhere due to the ‘bright lights and larger pond’ syndromes and incessant poor governance.

    Where the state government has been kept at arm’s length some serious local smarts has had a chance to change things for the better. The Barossa’s a classic case. It happened in spite of the state pollies, not because of the buggers.

    From Andrew Bolt (btw, how many ways are there of declaring civil war? Because I’m sure that’s what the Left keep trying to do) -

    Australia’s old Parliament House – a symbol of our great democracy – was handed to the Museum of Australian Democracy under a deal, as the museum itself explains:

    This Charter sets out the standards of service which visitors to the Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) at Old Parliament House can expect….

    The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House vision is:

    To celebrate, debate and experience the journey of Australian Democracy

    Here is how the Museum today “celebrates” one of the world’s strongest democracies – by defacing the old Parliament’s exterior to declare “this foul deed shall smell above the earth”.

    “goat eyes”, like “crazy eyes”, are both, not despite, but because of the obvious derangement flashing from the windows of their black souls, still considered attractive by many.

    Men actually seek out those types of women to breed with and let them have control of how the children are managed.

    This explains why Leftists multiplied after the ’70′s instead of dying out by the ’70′s. “Free” luv my arse! All that rooting around with wild eyed vixens is why mangy foxes have been eating us out of house and home and sanity, for generations.

I would just also like to add that last night we had roast duck seasoned with home grown thyme and rosemary, asparagus, honey-buttered carrots, and nice salty royal blue potato wedges roasted in duck fat. We had Cumberland Sauce, with generous quantities of redcurrant jelly, fresh orange juice and zest, and a not-terribly-good whiskey we were given.

    We washed it down with a bottle of Bollinger and then had two Cointreaus each.

    I am not kidding. Duck was reduced to clear at Woolworths; Bollinger was at a very reasonable price at 1st Choice. The rest, I did all by myself.

    Driftforge, not only good against liberals but more practically in one’s own life, against narcissists generally.

    The other thing that sprang to my attention was the author’s conviction that conservatives and liberals are implacable enemies who will one day come to blows. I have been saying this for years. There will be civil war in the West one day. We can’t live with them forever stealing our hard-earned and pushing our buttons. It’s insulting and demeaning to conservatives. Probably when the time comes that the West feels safe from external enemies (be it Islam or China or whatever) then our attention will be turned to solving these internal divisions once and for all.

    Forced marriages, genital mutilation a serious issue, PM says

    LAUREN WILSON
    The Australian
    February 09, 2014 9:29PM

    TONY Abbott has said state and federal police will be treating any evidence of forced marriages or genital mutilation within Australia very seriously.

    The Prime Minister’s comments come after a 26-year-old Sydney man was charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl, who it is claimed ‘married’ the child in a religious ceremony.

    Mr Abbott last night told Sky News’ Viewpoint program there was “no ifs or buts”, that both forced marriages and genital mutilation were illegal.

    “We have strong laws against these things, if anyone has any evidence that this is taking place they should take it to the police,” he said.

    Mr Abbott said concerned members of the community could approach the police in “complete confidence”.

    “Our police have experience in dealing with sensitive issues, I am absolutely confident that if people have evidence, they take it to the police and it will be treated appropriately, but above all else it will be treated seriously,” he said.

  178. Makka

    “are now freed from the threat of being charged as racists, when people asked to rescued from Islam?”

    WESTERN Australian Treasurer Troy Buswell has settled his defamation case against his former lover Adele Carles.

    Mr Buswell launched legal action against the former Greens MP in December 2012 over claims she made in the media alleging inappropriate behaviour.

    The confidential out-of-court settlement includes a written apology from Ms Carles to Mr Buswell.

    “I now accept that the comments I made regarding Mr Buswell contained defamatory allegations and I unreservedly apologise for making these allegations,” she wrote.

    “I sincerely apologise for the damage, distress and embarrassment that I have caused to Mr Buswell.”

    Ms Carles has also given a written apology to others, including businessman Nigel Satterley and seafood magnate Nick Kailis.

    Ms Carles had used press conferences, a radio interview and social media to make comments about Mr Buswell’s state of mind, drinking and behaviour at a party at Mr Satterley’s home.

    She had also claimed Mr Kailis was on the receiving end of Mr Buswell’s alleged behaviour.

    Ms Carles could not be reached for comment.

    Should have rejected the settlement and taken the loony bitch for every penny she has, and will ever have…

    THE federal government will push ahead with plans to reform the Human Rights Commission which has lost its balance, Attorney-General George Brandis says.

    In consultation with the Commission, the government is drafting legislation that will be brought to parliament in 2014.

    “For far too long the Human Rights Commission has taken a narrow and selective view of human rights,” Senator Brandis told Sky News on Sunday.

    “It’s been operating as an anti-discrimination commission.”

    The changes will direct commissioners to consider the full range of human rights including freedom of expression, freedom of association and freedom of the press, the Liberal frontbencher said.

    “I want the Commission to embrace a spirit of pluralism and diversity of opinion which has been noticeably lacking from its affairs in the recent past.”

    Federal cabinet in December appointed Tim Wilson, a policy director at the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) for the past seven years, as one of seven commissioners in an initial move that the government said would help to restore balance.

    “One of the provisions of the Act that I want to repeal is this rather chilling provision that requires the commissioners to act collegially … what they ought to do is act pluralistically,” Senator Brandis said.

    The government also plans to create a freedom commissioner.

    ” HousingWire first reported Feb. 1 that three prominent bankers were found dead in apparent suicides spanning the course of just six days.

    Since then, details emerged about the work of the three that suggests at least a passing commonality – that is, the institutions they worked for were all connected to investigations in the United States or the United Kingdom for various types of fraud or misconduct.

    Former Federal Reserve economist Mike Dueker, 50, was found dead in an apparent suicide near Tacoma, Washington on Jan. 31. Dueker was chief economist at Russell Investments.

    On Jan. 26, William Broeksmit, 58, a former senior manager for Deutsche Bank, was found hanging in his home, also an apparent suicide.

    On Jan. 28, Gabriel Magee, 39, vice president at JPMorgan Chase (JPM) London headquarters, apparently jumped to his death from a building in the Canary Wharf area.

    New York state Department of Financial Services subpoenaed Russell Investment as well as other major firms in November 2013 as part of an investigation by Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky into how the firm’s handle investment proposals, compensation practices, relationships with money managers and investment tracking practices.

    Lawsky is the same regulator who on Thursday put an indefinite hold on a $2.7 billion MSR deal between Ocwen Financial Corp. (OCN) and Wells Fargo (WFC). Lawsky has been described in press reports as “an enforcer with zeal.”

    But that’s just it. Doctors, nurses, social workers etc. have been treating thousands of genitally mutilated women in Australia, for years, and children remain in those families, and suffer the same, beyond the four girls we’ve heard of in the news so far.

  191. “Fourth suicide for finance executive under investigation

    There are models of nail-guns that make that possible, though, I find it highly unlikely that someone would not only choose that method of self-execution. People mostly choose the least painful means of ending their life, and death by nail-gun wouldn’t be painless, in-fact, plenty of people have survived multiple nails being fired into the head.

    But then again, more than one police officer found that a North Queensland murder was suicide even though the victim had apparently shot herself in the back of the head three times…

    One of the shots, yes.

    A bullet had been fired from the rear of the vehicle, through the passenger’s front seat. On the cabin floor was a rock and a bent fishing knife. Some twenty metres from the vehicle, but not together, were Vicki Arnold’s shoes.

    The weapon used was a cut-down .22 rifle, an alteration that negated the automatic reload which meant manually cocking before each discharge. The rifle was discovered with the mechanism jammed, and in the hand of Vicki Arnold — a startling discovery since suicide victims are rarely found holding the weapon.
