    Bruce I posted a couple of weeks ago (I think?) that Australian Army already going this way on words like rifleman & patrolman now being referred to as operators.

    OT but my friend tried posting the other night during the gender combat chaos for the first time got bounced, told him not to worry probably not anything he said just being unrecognised probably had him in the sin bin. He lurks here and tried to back a comment made by Kev Gillett about the challenges of Infantry, thought it was spot on.

    ” The project came to nothing in the end, however, primarily because of concerns that the settlers would drift inevitably and in large numbers to the cities. Forty-seven per cent of the public opposed the scheme in a 1944 opinion poll and, in July of that year, Prime Minister Curtin formally rejected the proposal”.

    This is one of the biggest chances Australia ever missed.

    Simply backing the right horse in advance isn’t that remarkable, anyway. It’s the analysis that counts. Someone who is very good at reading the political tea-leaves makes accurate predictions AND provides their own rationale as to why they’ve made that prediction, and this is borne out by events. If you backed Trump for the wrong reasons, ie. you were motivated by a cosmetic appeal or some other superficial factor that had little bearing on the race, that’s not really that amazing at all.

    Drift, I searched and found this:

    Of course, you would expect a delay between cause and effect for any cancer, perhaps 30 to 40 years. However, there does appear to be no reduction in the rates of lung cancer at all.

    NOTE: there is a reduction in the deaths from lung cancer, mostly because we have better treatment options.

    Just read an interesting piece in the Speccie about the non-Turnbull election.
    It reminded me of a situation that taught me yet again to never take anything for granted.
    I thought that working for the AEC was voluntary and that I should do my bit to help-out locally.
    Anyway, I ended-up running a booth. Good hard working folks, etc.
    Mid-afternoon, one of the staff brought a woman to me who demanded to speak to the OIC.
    She was about mid to late 20’s.
    “I have been sent by the Good Angels to warn you that your Polling Booth is under threat from the evil Masonic Angels”. “The good angels are fighting to protect you but they need to warn you that you need to prepare for disaster in case they are overwhelmed”.
    Military College, MBA, Diplo School; none of that stuff prepared me for this reality.
    My brilliant 2IC took over. Thanked her profusely, offered her some Jelly Babies, organised someone to help her vote, got her to agree to sit on the veranda until 2IC could drive her home.

    It’s pretty difficult to have a consistent measure of any “quality of life” factor over a significant time period. Just throwing it out there, but we spend a lot more effort on diagnostics these days (you can observe a lot just by looking), and we have better methods of early detection. Also, plenty of non-smoking factors contribute to lung cancer, including benzine in fuel and background radiation is higher (has not returned to the natural level since nuclear testing back in the 60’s see also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Radiocarbon_bomb_spike.svg )

    On the other hand, treatments are better and people are living longer. You have to die of something, right?

    Indeed! Pom govts seemingly back-stabbed Israel on territorial boundaries (in favour of Oil States) soon after the 1917 Balfour Declaration was signed.

    Then “The Secret History of MI6” by Keith Jeffery states that in five Italian ports the Brits attacked ships carrying Jewish holocaust survivors fleeing war-torn Europe. One ship was sunk and two damaged.

    Dr. Dave Hunt outstandingly researched his book “Judgment Day – Islam, Israel and the Nations” .
    During Israels Six-day War, Dr Hunt records on page 245: “the USS Liberty, an Auxiliary Technical Research Ship (AGTR-5) arrived off the Sinai coast. It began to sweep Israel, sucking in every Israeli military communication and relaying it all to the British Secret Service’s giant electronic listening post on Cyprus, which had the capability of filtering, decoding and analyzing the mass of electronics the Liberty was accumulating. This was then transmitted to the Arab armed forces, giving complete maps of every Israeli military movement in advance.”

    Reportedly the Yanks also had early satellite evidence of Arab military build-ups on Israeli borders but never told the Israelis.

    No wonder the Poms and the USA are decaying.

  32. Oh come on

    In 2012 I was really quite noisily confident that Romney would take it. This time around I was much more cautious. Many of the reasons myself and others gave for why Romney would win were wrong, yet actually applied to Trump’s victory. Skewed polls that hid Democrat weakness/GOP strength in crucial States, an overreliance on big data analytics, the impact of the late undecided voter, the over-rated high budget ground game, the burden of a relatively unsuccessful incumbency…all of these things I felt certain would be Obama’s undoing.

    Yet in 2012, the polls were pretty much right. Obama’s data mining juggernaut allowed him cobble together the weirdest coalition to have formed an electoral plurality in American history, the undecideds didn’t break for Romney – they stayed home, Obama’s ground game (guided by his analytics models) unquestionably turned out all the voters he needed to win, and his incumbency didn’t prove much of a hindrance at all.

    Yet in 2016, the skewed polls and Hillary’s analytic models didn’t detect dangerous weakness in supposed Dem strongholds, the late undecideds seem to have broken for Trump, Hillary’s juggernaut ground game was a colossally more expensive flop than ORCA, and Hillary, while not being the incumbent, was viewed as the incumbent torch holder, and this worked against her (despite the actual incumbent riding relatively high in the polls).

    If I had an opportunity to put a bet on Romney, I would have done so for all the reasons Trump won and Hillary lost (in fact I bet a mate $50 Romney would win). Having been burnt before, there was no way I was going to put some money on Trump. Annoying!

    Background radiation levels may not have much to do with it, there was a building in Taiwan that accidentally had radioactive material mixed in the concrete, the workers in the building were monitored on an ongoing basis and they seemed to have no higher mortality rate than their peers.

    There is also now less benzine in fuel than there ever has been, % has been limited for some time, it was one way to improve the octane number.

    Top 10 Trump Moments of 2016
    GAVIN MCINNES

    Over the past year, I’ve made lots of videos explaining Donald Trump’s appeal and outright telling people to vote for him.

    (LANGUAGE WARNING:)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqLSqgn8YxA

    Now that the year is ending and Trump is headed to the Oval Office, here’s a roundup of my videos about the president elect.

  36. Geriatric Mayfly

    “Dozens” attend a vigil for the dead country shopper on Manus, in Sydney’s Hyde Park. Archdeacon Rod Bower, of Gosford, attended and addressed the milling throng. The mob gave vent to the usual slogans, and we expect at least one will make it to the Archdeacon’s billboard.

  37. Leo G

    So.. what is causing lung cancer rates to rise then?

    Perhaps lung cancer rates are not really rising, but are a result of earlier detection and unrecognised high rates of auto-remission in the early stages of the disease. Smoking may not be a causal factor, but a cofactor that modulates that early auto-remission rate.
    Complicating the picture is the evidence that lung cancer was a rare condition prior to the late 19th century. According to review articles I have examined over the years, most 19th century lung surgeons never saw the condition. The change in the situation appears to coincide with the widespread use of cigarettes and of phosphate fertilizers in tobacco production.

  38. Fisky;

    This has a long way to go. If we get through the next three weeks without US/Russian planes taking pot shots at each other, it will have turned out pretty well.

    During the Cold War, it was de rigeur for Soviet ships to ‘bump into’ USN and RN ships.
    Expect a couple of bumpinesses to occur between USN/PLAN/RFS vessels as O’Bama creates more chaos.

    The Year Reheated

    In which we glimpse the world through the eyes of our self-imagined betters.

    The year began with news that living in Glasgow is now to be considered a work of art, according to Ellie Harrison, a taxpayer-funded artist who, coincidentally, lives in Glasgow. We also witnessed the talents of Sandrine Schaeffer, who teaches the subtleties of performance art to those less gifted than herself, and who unveiled “a series of research based actions in public spaces” – i.e., walking repeatedly past automatic doors. Gorged on art, our attention then turned to academic matters and the ruminations of Dr Riyad A Shahjahan, an exponent of “social justice theory” and “pedagogies of dissent.” Dr Shahjahan wished to impress on us that “the norms of neoliberal higher education” – specifically, expectations of punctuality and academic competence – are both racist and oppressive.

    February saw a multi-million-dollar experiment in progressive crime prevention – a project that was as bold as it was unsuccessful – namely, bribing known criminals to not commit further crimes. And Ms Celia Edell, a “24-year-old feminist philosopher interested in social justice,” explored the thorny conundrum of whether feminism is compatible with the eating of bacon sandwiches.

    In March, we beheld the artistic work of Sandrine Schaeffer’s students – feats that included drooling, doomed horticulture and masochistic thigh-scarring. And feminist “creative” Katherine Garcia attempted to justify her sub-optimal life choices. Ms Garcia, who describes herself as a “multi-dimensional creature” doing “enlightening work,” was shocked to discover that getting heavily into debt to pursue a grad school degree in Women and Gender Studies isn’t a sure-fire path to status and prosperity.

    April was enlivened by the highly-wound students at Edinburgh University, whose meetings forbid expressions and gestures that “denote disagreement,” and where even quietly shaking one’s head is a scandalous transgression. In the pages of Everyday Feminism, Ms Kai Cheng Tom bemoaned the fact that “disorders like violent psychopathy” are “generally considered unlikeable,” and that “compassion for psychopaths, pathological liars, or narcissists” – people such as herself – is hard to come by. And over at the Guardian, Grayson Perry, a part-time transvestite and maker of unattractive pottery, disdained masculinity as “useless” and “counter-productive,” a mere “hangover” from more primitive, less Guardian-friendly times.

    In May, the “social justice” juggernaut Hari Ziyad railed against conformism and idle stereotypes, while denouncing the “white supremacist cisheteropatriarchal capitalistic gaze,” and exhorting us to spend more time fretting about “gender non-conforming Indigenous people with disabilities.” And the no less non-conformist Laurie Penny announced that she “leans towards anarcho-communism,” which, rather conveniently, means that your money actually belongs to her.

    Tobacco & lung cancer…….

    I remember reading, many years ago, some research comparing the rates of lung cancer with 2 groups of smokers – the top 10% economically versus the bottom 10% (office types vs labourer types). The report left out the non-workers.

    The bottom 10% got something like 4 times the rate of the top 10%. This report put it down to the various solvents and other chemicals used by the lower paid workers.

    No doubt, the clay tablets that this report was on have been smashed and cast into the Marianas Trench.

Someone who is very good at reading the political tea-leaves makes accurate predictions AND provides their own rationale as to why they’ve made that prediction, and this is borne out by events.

    Right. Simply stating what one’s preferences are adds nothing, because we basically already know what other people support. Zippy wants a whites-only apartheid state and the disenfranchisement of blacks. Dot wants an enormous Muslim underclass consisting of tuk-tuks and shoe-shine boys. JC wants the Democrats in charge of everything so the Federal Reserve will keep the money spigot on, etc.

    What is more useful is putting events together and figuring out what comes next. That’s where the real value is added.

    It’s a fairly well-known figure of speech, curious george. Put down the phone – no need to call the pedant police.

    I’m well aware of the figure of speech. And I did read it thoroughly and the fact remains as you admit in another post viz.
    “Many of the reasons myself and others gave for why Romney would win were wrong, yet actually applied to Trump’s victory. Skewed polls that hid Democrat weakness/GOP strength in crucial States, an overreliance on big data analytics, the impact of the late undecided voter, the over-rated high budget ground game, the burden of a relatively unsuccessful incumbency…all of these things I felt certain would be Obama’s undoing.”
    So if he’d lost, the facts as you “read them” would have been correct?

    There is no warfare sunshine. I happen to read all the posts as I have time on my hands. Yours strike me as being written by one who does appear to have a large knowledge base. I’m almost afraid to ask if there is anything you aren’t across. I only ask because you seem to accuse others of googling rather lightly.

    ..
    Before the election I was going to write a bit on why people believe the things they do.
    Very hard to overcome you own bias.
    The interesting thing about the Trump win was how the progressive press and the pollsters all fed into each other to the point they believed what they wanted to believe, and confirmed their biased views in a spiral of stupidity.
    There is a lesson here.
    Just because you want something to be true doesn’t make it so. There was a whole lot of wishful thinking in those polls and commentary.
    The Brexit polls told a similar story.
    In the end, they saw what they wanted to see, not what was really there.
    Then there were deliberate attempts to make a Hilliary win seem inevitable, a useful tactic in the American context.
    Once you realised the polls were shit, you could look for actual indicators of the popularity of the two campaigns.

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/12/29/top-dems-turn-on-kerry-over-israel-speech.html

    Secretary of State John Kerry is under fire for his blunt speech taking aim at the Israeli government — with criticism coming from not only congressional Republicans, but also from members of his own party.

    The defiant secretary of state used the speech Wednesday to defend the decision by the Obama administration to abstain on a U.N. Security Council resolution calling Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem a violation of international law. The abstention allowed the measure to pass Friday – enraging the Israelis and drawing a strong rebuke from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    That abstention was opposed by a number of Democratic lawmakers, including incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY., as well as Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Chris Coons, D-Del., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

    These people are liars. They have always been lapdogs of the Left/Obama and they are being extremely dishonest by pretending to distance themselves from Obama, a known Muslim Brotherhood sockpuppet. Never ever let J-wish Democrats pretend they are not Leftist agitators first and foremost.

    Secondly and given that it was, as you pointed out, HIS article that I was posting to the Cat for people who may have missed it (and that he covered the issue with considerable aplomb), I didn’t feel the need to add some kind of additional commentary to it…

    ..but hey, if you feel so unappreciated that you need to come on like Jack-the-Bear over a simple comment, and additionally the need to add your 2 cents worth of approbrium to Mr Krauthammer’s opinion piece… well, more power to you.

    In Melbourne, bloke enter’s blokes place trying to steal his cannabis crop, but wifey disturbs intruder, who then shoots bloke and escapes.

    The level of writing in this article is about on par with that.

    Police are hoping someone will grass up the bloke.

    That is from the third paragraph of a vitriolic denunciation, so I think you are the one losing your shit.

    TE, I found Hannibal far too dark for my taste and yet I enjoyed Dexter very much.

    Whatever, champ.

    Welcome to Scrolltown. Population: You.

    Slayer, perhaps you haven’t noticed, but it’s fairly common here that the same link or article is posted and discussed independently on more than one occasion. There have been times when I have noticed someone posting an article that I put up for discussion *days* ago. Or at least it seemed like that. Yet I didn’t say anything. Because I recall the other times when I posted links or pieces that I later discovered had already been well-trodden in the thread as a result of someone else’s earlier diligence, and I felt a bit silly.

    It’s the nature of the OT. No one is hanging off anyone else’s every word. Anything may go unnoticed, for any number of reasons. Hell, a better discussion may result from something posted the second time around. This isn’t fair or unfair – just a matter of timing. There are no prizes for first to post. There are no prizes for posting at all!

    You think THIS is me getting angry at some random person on the internet??? Wait till you see me REALLY give it to some random person on the internet!

    It’s amazing how California just legalised Child Prostitution. How much lower can they go? How much longer until they’ll allow sex with animals? No wonder why they’re allies with Islam.

    Never ever let J-wish Democrats pretend they are not Leftist agitators first and foremost.

    Fisky , US J*ws voted overwhelmingly for the Dems. Wtf did they expect from the leftist turds?

    J*ws need to wake up to themselves before getting sympathy for their own stupid choices.

    J*ws need to wake up to themselves before getting sympathy for their own stupid choices.

    Notice how the stupidest and most epically wrong people in the media, like Jon Chait, Matt Yglesias, Tom Friedman, Roger Cohen, etc, are virtually all J-wish Democrats. It’s embarrassing.

  82. Oh come on

    Slayer, what exactly do you think you’re owed? A hat tip for copy/pasting someone else’s article here first?

    And maybe not even first. Perhaps someone else linked to it earlier on this thread. Perhaps they did on the thread related to the topic. Did you check before posting? No need to answer. You’ll know if you did or didn’t. And if you didn’t, congrats, you did exactly what fisky did. You came across an interesting article and posted it here for discussion.

    OCO, I have noticed that Slayer does tend to get a bit snarky when he posts something he feels is important/relevant to an OT (or other Cat thread) which is then (in his eyes at least) ignored by most, only to be followed up several hours (or days) later as if it were new information…

    I can only surmise that Slayer is sometimes just a little overly keen to have his/her voice heard over the cacophony that is sometimes the Cat, and for some reason takes it a little too personally when they feel as though they are being ignored by the everyone else.

    He’s only upset because his daughter’s J-wish friends in Hollywood are up in arms over the issue, and how it may affect her ‘career’ starring as Barbie in the upcoming motion picture about the plastic doll…

    Fat Barbie is the Senator’s second cousin once removed or some such shit.

    MV, Fury was pretty awful. Any troops that insolent and ill-disciplined would be lucky to just be on a fizzer and handed over to the screws. As to the numerous war crimes, I know things got pretty ragged but that was beyond the pale. It was supposedly loosly based by the episode that earned Audie Murphy a CMH, as it turned out so loose it was unrecognisable. Why not just run that story? Hollywood is terrified of being accused of triumphalism, and also gets a vicarious lefty thrill out of portraying the military in a poor light, even when ostensibly pumping their tyres. When I think of the number who volunteered for active service in the ’40s compared to the current crop of petulant pantywaisters, it makes me avoid most if not all of their jaundiced, poorly written and acted product.
