    “Hot/Crazy. Kristina Keneally appears to be getting some kind of Sky gig as a talking head. I have no problem with this.”

    Neither hot nor crazy, merely cunning as a shiphouse rat.

    Have you done that before Mk50? can you please come over and clean all the wine I splattered over my keyboard. Thanks.

  3. calli

    Well that fella had a hot time in the old town…or not.

    Is that what they call a “party in your pants?”.

  4. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC

    I hope it was not good wine!

    I mean… what? How? Why?

    This clown’s just sitting there watching the teev, reached for some ‘popping candy’ and thinks, ‘Hey, why not shove this under my foreskin? Yeah, that’s a good idea!’

    I mean how stupid can he get? That’s greenie levels of stupid.

    Do NOT encourage Mk50 when he is in this evil a frame of mind!

    Is that like the oddballs that show up in ER? I was just minding my own business, doctor, when I slipped over and somehow this (insert household item) ended up inserted in my tradesmans?

    ended up inserted in my tradesmans?

    Not a fan of that term I must say.

    I have employed a concreter with huge extendy thingies in his earlobes. He looks quite strange, but is a master of his trade. Respect.

    Someone who inserts citric acid and co 2 into his Old Boy on a whim…not so much. Think of the carbon footprint!

    Interesting comment in Business Spectator (reprinted from WSJ) about the dispute between Obama and Congress over the Obamacare legislation. http://www.businessspectator.com.au/article/2014/8/1/usa/case-suing-us-president

    One interesting point made in the article, which may have some relevance to the current impasse here between the government and the senate, is this ” If Congress cannot achieve consensus, that doesn’t mean Congress is ‘broken’. A divided Congress reflects a divided people. Until there is a compromise acceptable to the majority, the status quo is the only correct path. An impasse emphatically does not warrant a president’s bypassing Congress with a pen and phone, as Obama claimed the power to do early this year.”

    A little old-fashioned, perhaps. Belongs to the era of the huge ancestral pile (and no, I don’t mean that sort of pile).

    Try something more modern. Rusty starfish is one that’s recently come to my notice.

    Road Weather Alert for Melbourne for Western, Northern, Eastern and South Eastern suburbs and Dandenong RangesIcy roads due to low level snowfalls, hail and freezing temperatures will make driving conditions dangerous during the remainder of Friday and Saturday morning across the metropolitan area, especially roads in outer suburbs and about the nearby ranges.

    It as very pleasant in a brisbane today, but sounds like it might drop down to Melbourne maximums tonight.

    The Evil Mind of John Kerry

    From Hanoi to Hamas, he wears blinders.

    http://spectator.org/articles/60138/evil-mind-john-kerry

    “And confronted directly — and yet again — with evil, this time in the form of Hamas, Secretary of State Kerry doesn’t understand. If one reads the Hamas Charter the language is quite plain: Israel is to be “eliminated.” While it is Hamas at the forefront of this latest battle with Israel, this goal is typical of Jihadist groups who openly proclaim their objective as — in the words of neighboring Hezbollah in Lebanon, “the destruction of Israel.” (And the Jerusalem Post is reporting that Hamas is now inviting Hezbollah to join Hamas in the current war.) Earlier this week Mosab Hassan Yousef, the dissident son of the founder of Hamas, was on The Mark Levin Show patiently explaining to his American audience that after killing the Jews, his father’s Hamas is about establishing a global caliphate. The Jews may be the first target, but the Hamas objective is radical Islamic world domination.

    In the face of this, what was Kerry doing? Over at Fox Charles Krauthammer captured the moment well, saying of Kerry that the Secretary of State “returns [from a trip to Paris where he met with representatives of the Hamas-friendly Qatar and Turkey] essentially as the lawyer for Hamas.”

    The medieval death cultists do all they can to stay back there, buried in their primitive darkness.

    Meanwhile demand for goods and a preparedness to meet it, via secure supply routes continues, unnoticed by them and to the great advantage of their adversary, strengthening him.

    A good result, eh?

    FFS. We have a Human Rights Commissioner so revolted by her own disabled daughter she first hoped she’d die and when that failed to eventuate, she gave her away.

    And this foul bitch lectures us about illegal immigrants? Strike a light. Does our racial discrimination commissioner have slaves?

    Yes, but she is said to have, “perfect diction”.

    Meet the woman taking on Morrison


    With her perfect diction, Gillian Triggs is shaping up as Immigration Minister Scott Morrison’s most powerful foe to date

    If we are asked to Judge her on her diction, does that mean we may also Judge her on other things, like her character?

  52. Gab

    It about six months of age, Triggs and Clark took Victoria home, and, with the help of the Uniting Church, found a family who took over her primary care. (Victoria died eight years ago, at the age of 21.) When I ask Triggs if this arrangement bothered her, she says: “Yes, because you have child and you expect to look after her. But in the end I simply made the judgement that I would rather put my time into my other children and family, because I also never believed she would live to that age.”

    What a selfish soulless bitch.

    Don’t know what to say. The air con has run every night this year in my bedroom.
    It runs all day every day in the office.
    There isn’t a blanket in the place (I know this coz a paying guest asked for one recently, & it turns out we don’t have any).
    Were I to wear socks or shoes up the street, I’d get sweaty toes.

    Hello from the (Snowy) bayside suburbs of Melbourne.

    I’ve not long returned home, Brian and the hail on my decking is still there from earlier this afternoon. It’s so cold!

    I really do love winter.

    Growing up in the certainty that was the inner Sydney Irish Catholic factory workers domain, and enjoying the excellent representation of the State and Federal Labor Member brothers Frank and Kevin Stewart, our natural affiliation was with the NSW Right.

    In my thirties a mature assessment found that those who followed were simply spivs and urgers (Frank Walker, Carr and Tickner) or social engineers imposing their dogma without authority (Dawkins). In turning then to the dark side my over-riding feeling was one of betrayal – Labor promised to be something it clearly was not.

    I feel the same now about Labor wymminses, from Lawrence and Kirner to the slag from Altona, and their camp followers in the likes of Trigg. They were first touted as more in touch with the human condition, better negotiators, bathed in trust and glowing with decency.

    They are nothing at all like that. They are worse confidence men than just about any of the blokes who went before, spivs par excellence, untrustworthy, dangerous and utterly unscrupulous with it.

  58. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    I feel the same now about Labor wymminses, from Lawrence

    Google “Penny Easton” sometime, and you will understand why Carmen Lawrence is a name that stinks in the nostrils of all West Australians.

  59. Gab

    How bizarre. Just went outside to photograph the hail, as you do, and when I came back inside the house there was a fly on the wall! A fly, while it’s 1.7 deg outside. A fly in the middle of winter? Is this a new breed of fly no one bothered to tell me about? A global warming-resistant fly?

    He’s dead now, but.

    Unlike the Good Doctor Lawrence I do remember Penny Easton well, and what Lawrence did to her.

    What did Labor do to reward the bitch? Shoe horned her into the Federal Parliament and later named her national president.

    A few weeks ago my wife must have left open the door and we ended up with about 20 blow flies in the house. it was the weirdest thing for this time of year. And they were freaking huge too. I almost poisoned ourselves with insecticide getting rid of them.

  63. Gab

    Probably just blow-ins, JC.

    :D

  64. JC

    lol, they blew in alright.

    I love executing them with fly spray.

  65. Oh come on

    What did Labor do to reward the bitch? Shoe horned her into the Federal Parliament

    And awarded her the reddest of red ribbon ALP seats – Fremantle. It’s so red it might turn green.

  66. Oh come on

    I love executing them with fly spray.

    My much beloved and sadly departed dog enjoyed eating blow flies. She would shepherd them into the corner of the window with her snout and then lick them up. Crunch crunch crunch.

  67. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Unlike the Good Doctor Lawrence I do remember Penny Easton well, and what Lawrence did to her.

    I know the new thread is on, but I did have the privilege of meeting Penny Easton’s mother – a gracious lady in the face of tragedy, and someone that Carmen Lawrence would NEVER hope to emulate.

    Young woman wins big payout after Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control unit (LOL) drew guns on her, climbed on the bonnet of her car because she had bought … a case of sparkling water.

    Underage student who was violently arrested by cops who mistook her case of sparkling water for beer gets $200,000 compensation.

    Daly had left a Charlottesville, Virginia, supermarket in April 2013 when her car was surrounded by state ABC agents, one of whom drew a firearm and another who had jumped onto the hood of her car.

    They had mistaken her carton of La Croix sparkling water for beer that her friend had purchased.
