    you’d be a touch sensitive too putting up with the avalanche of BS news stories he has had to cope with

    He is like a neighbourhood drug dealer. He is giving them the first shot cheap and, once they lock their political careers into batteries and have the hook, sinker and 100 metres of line in their guts, Musk-rat will reel them in.

    Later he will tell them how his batteries will work much better without the windfarms, by marginally improving the effectiveness of baseload generation.

    Interesting that just 10 minutes after his ‘OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG’ ejaculation on Twitter (complete with edited video), and just after being called out by NBC’s Chief Political Editior on Twitter, Chris Cillizza then back-tracked and posted the following:

    He could wipe his arse with the constitution and they’d call it a master stroke.

    Which is exactly what Obama did throughout his term. He said outright that it was “out of date”’. Trump, on the other hand, just made a historic speech on the very question of upholding and protecting our culture, individual rights and values, just as envisaged by America’s founding fathers. A refreshing change from Obama’s constant apology tours.

    If all Trump does is demolish, I’m still happy and I think most of the USA will be better off.

    As I’ve already pointed out: a giant meteor would be the best resident of the White House and a crater 20 mile radius covering most of Washington would do nicely. If Trump stays in the White House for 4 years and leaves a crater 5 mile radius, that’s acceptable.

    Why does three phase double the power use? Is that because the voltage is also increased now to 415 V rather than 220/240 V?

    I does not double the power use , if a suburb or street has a Transformer from the sub station ( 20,000 volts and over ) it provides three phase power 240 volts in three phase 240 times three just to not overheat the transformers should they pop , ( the transformers are usually cooled in an oil bath , picture the canisters you witnessed in your youth up on the lamp post ) .
    Those Transformers are still there just in junctions down the road .

    Just an example of how the MSM fakes the news to make it look like Islamophobes are everywhere:

    Jailed: Man who rammed Range Rover into group of Muslims celebrating Eid in east London

    but if we dig into the story itself:

    A man who deliberately rammed his Range Rover into a crowd celebrating the Muslim festival of Eid in east London has been jailed for 12 years.

    Akikul Islam, 25, was today handed the lengthy jail sentence after being found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm in May.

    Mmmmyes, a good strong Anlgo-Celtic Presbyterian name, to be sure… as you can see from his mugshot in the article.

    Two men were seriously injured in the attack on July 7 last year.

    Islam had arrived in Frimley Way, Mile End, in the company of another car just before 1am as Muslims celebrated the end of Ramadan.

    CCTV footage showed three men get out of the two cars and begin arguing with a group of around ten males armed with baseball bats and bottles.

    Islam remained in his car as a fight escalated around him.

    However, as the other car sped off he turned around and drove directly at three of the men, running over a 24-year-old and smashing into a parked car.

    Now, what he did was reprehensible.

    As was the MSM’s piss-poor attempt at using a headline to stoke ‘Islamophobia is everywhere!’ rhetoric…

    Hilarious travelogue, Dr Beaugan. Lightens the day. Keep ’em coming and do let us know if you get kidnapped or worse, stumble upon more frightbats activisting their way around Sri lanka.

    Best news off today was asking my guide if he knew what a feminist was, and being told he’d never heard the word, Gab.

    I’m wearing a red cord around my wrist. We went to a Buddhist temple and I got blessed by a monk. He tied the cord on, and this means Buddha is going to look after me for at least 24 hours. The temple was half a museum and astonishing. I walked a mile or so in my socks and took loads of photos on my phone. Then I bought a fake Rolex, which took some hunting down. It is still going. I also got some cufflinks. Some of them were garish with opals, emeralds and rubies on them, I settled for stainless steel and black. I have kept Spiky informed by text, and on hearing Sri Lanka is famous for je welry, I am under instructions to keep an eye peeled for necklaces and bracelets and suchlike.

    She is envious of the picture I sent her of my hand with a baby turtle on it. I was taken to a turtle farm. They do consevation of turtles and look after some that have lost flippers. They keep them in large tanks.

    Tomorrow, Kandy, and I get to ride an elephant if they can find one strong enough.

    I pay my guide at rather more than his suggested $15 a day. I paid our tuk-tuk driver $20 for taking up more than half his day. To make up for this gross exploitation, I stood them lunch at a Chinese-indian restaurant. Less than $40 equivalent for an excellent meal for three. I paid $50 and told them to keep the change, which left the guide with his flabber severely ghasted. But although the place looked grotty, the food was great. The restaurant was my choice, I just stopped the tuk-tuk when we passed it. The guide suggested KFC. Hell, I could eat that anywhere.

    Of course, I might miss the elephants tomorrow on account of a dire rear, but so far the digestion is handling the food and the tuk-tuk juddering.

    Ouch! Even I can’t handle Johnny Walker red straight up, so don’t feel bad about mixing it.

    Seriously though… try buying both a red and a black and then pour a decent slosh of each with no ice and sip from one and then the other. Pretty soon the red tastes appalling, but the black tastes kind of interesting. When you mix with coke and ice they both taste pretty similar. After that you decide whether to spend the extra, but at least you know the deal.

    Now there’s nothing wrong with cheap quaffable piss and I’m not a snob, but the answer to that is a New Zealand white chilled to an inch of freezing, or for the discerning tosser try Brown Brothers Prosecco (also chilled).

    Because I have been expecting this for a while now. Tim is out of the starting blocks a bit early. And Labor has a wee problem in implementing it nationally when they get in to power, unless there is an exclusion for political parties and trade unions. Which is likely to be the case.

    But yes – I am getting pretty jack of these troughers.

    This may seem like a simplistic argument but it is not.
    It’s about calling their bluff.

    BREAKING NEWS:

    Breaking News: An Illegal Immigrant Just Tried To Kill Ivanka Trump

    Police and Secret Service said a man from the Bronx who is allegedly an illegal immigrant tried to enter Trump Tower to Assassinate Ivanka Trump.

    Adames Benitez, 52, was wearing ballistic gear under his shirt when he arrived at the Midtown Trump Tower building before Secret Service noticed he was wearing a bulletproof vest.

    Benitez told the agents that he was a U.S. Senator there to talk to Ivanka Trump about her dress line, and that he owned the building, police said.

    Secret Service searched the man only to have revealed that Benitez was carrying two throwing knives, a weighted sock and a fake New York State ID card, authorities said.

    He was then taken to Weill Cornell Medical Center for a psychiatric evaluation, according to Secret Service. He is charged with weapons possession and having a bogus ID.

    More details as they arrive.

    For the last 18 years, Venezuelans have lived under the system that the G20 rioters want to impose: socialism.

    The results have been catastrophic.

    Venezuela’s economy has been wrecked.

    Its currency is virtually worthless.

    Venezuelans have been impoverished.

    Starvation is rampant; most Venezuelans go hungry while the lucky ones eat vermin and scrounge in garbage cans.

    (The really lucky ones, of course, are the socialist insiders who escaped to enjoy the billions they had stashed in Swiss bank accounts.)

    If one case fails, they have a lot to lose in the future.

    But they don’t want public examination.
    Hence with the Qld students the HRC f…ked up big time.
    That case f…ed them for future cases, etc.
    They have much more to lose than can be gained by robbing one stubborn poor bloke if things go wrong.

    Standing up to them does make them think twice, as the uni students prove.

    The students didn’t really win, but the HRC has lost much more in pursuing it.
    And my final argument is……..
    backing down is not an option.

    Hey little malci you useless artzwipe.

    Do you, or any of your friends, really know how to make money without a government subsidy?

    There’s only me helping my mate in his business, restoring old furniture and on-selling it to hipsters in Fitzroy and Brunswick…

    Good on you, Brian.
    Best of luck with it all.
    I must have missed that bit of news.

    So the post office is a franchisee (ie. small business) that receives income from the Post office which is considered Commonwealth.

    Surely there will be some labour types in similar situations.

    I am struggling to see the difference between this situation and that of renting a house to someone who is a public servant.

    For Cats with an interest in matters military, I can highly recommend David Dufty’s book “The Secret Code Breakers of Central Bureau.”

    I did think that the subject had been done to death some time ago, but it’s a refreshing new look.

    Clementine Ford, via SMH main page calls for an end to the notion of freedom of opinion and speech:
    We need to move past the idea that everything is up for debate.

    Mark Butker given 5 times the airspace as Josh , rattled on about the batteries in SA in Lateline. He has no idea , burbled on about rise in polution here since Libs got in That is CO2 emissions . Don’t these guys ever read the papers put out by by Mann and co telling us what we already knew that the computer models are wrong . Or that Mann is in big trouble in court in Canada over fudging his hockey stick graph.
    Now that will be the destruction of Australia if Shorten wins we will have no manufacturing , live in the dark with reduced living standards and will not have enough money to pay for the goods made with our coal in other countries.
    Josh at least said that the batteries would not put out enough power and of course we have not been told the cost.

    Think about the real work load a democrat politician sets himself once in the oval office (no crude jokes, you know I can’t stand that sort of thing) the lack of respect for the actual country and the office, to do such a thing and then look at the Trumpster go.

    Just watched Pauline Hanson interviewed on Mark Latham’s Outsiders. Sorry but she’s as thick as a brick. Could never vote for her party – someone is pulling her strings.

    Righto, back to the tele for a while.

    I have calmed down from watching 3 minutes of ABC propaganda they call news.

    Time to watch a Naked Gun repeat, or similar light hearted dribble.

    The Naked Gun is great comedy.

    However, she will get my vote before liberals get it.

  114. twostix

    How sick the left is you ask?

    A Californian legislator is attempting to outlaw child marriage in California.

    Look who charged in to stop him:

    Hill wanted California to set a strict line at age 18, but the effort encountered swift opposition from fellow legislators, as well as groups that include the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.

    Democrats and the left love child rape.

    Exactly.
    Deadshit Trumble should call Pieman and threaten to turn over every Labor stooge who has written a book and had one copy purchased by a governmemt body, or claiming travel allowance on a Canberra flat owned by their wife until Pieman pulls his head in.
    But he won’t because he is a clueless dick.

    Then I bought a fake Rolex, which took some hunting down. It is still going. I also got some cufflinks. Some of them were garish with opals, emeralds and rubies on them, I settled for stainless steel and black. I have kept Spiky informed by text, and on hearing Sri Lanka is famous for je welry, I am under instructions to keep an eye peeled for necklaces and bracelets and suchlike.

    If it’s still going, your Rolex was a bargain, Dr. BG. With luck it won’t tarnish for a couple of weeks.
    The people are extremely hospitable and doubtless their cousin is a reliable vendor. 🙂

    Sri Lanka is famed for its quality precious stones, rubies, amethysts, garnets, emeralds, citrines and more. You can buy the stones alone (cabochon style is nice) and Spikey can get them set into something she’d like later. The antique silver j3welery is beautiful too; I bought quite a bit (careful, it is not sterling and can be mixed with tin) but have lost or broken it over the years and what is left sits needing a clean in a back cupboard somewhere. It’s not quite my style these days; but I had a pair of pure silver hanging cartridge and bobble ear rings I wore for years once, though I have no idea where they are now.

    Check out the gold and diamond prices; used to be good but may now carry a premium. Buy chains of 18-22ct gold and quality loose diamonds from trusted dealers only (seek advice from reliable sources). They do diamond cutting well and cheaply. Your hedge against bad times maybe.

    I didn’t find Sri Lanka a paradise, although others have. It is too much like India, which I won’t visit again. The tea plantations in the hills are a wonderful retreat away from the coastal dirt and scrabble, cool and with some beautiful old colonial architecture.

    Just watched Pauline Hanson interviewed on Mark Latham’s Outsiders. Sorry but she’s as thick as a brick. Could never vote for her party – someone is pulling her strings.

    Didn’t see it, but agree she is not very quick on the uptake and puzzles long over simple things.
    Thick as a brick would probably nail it. But with a good heart in the right place. A real trier.
    She won’t get my vote as any first place but I’d include her in preferences over Libs as a message.

    So at dinner tonight with friends, the topic turned to Trump.

    Did you know that Trump has played over 300 rounds of golf since January? And that he does deals will playing golf to further his business?

    No, I didn’t know that and quote frankly I couldn’t be bothered arguing back even if I did know the full details (which I don’t).

  119. Gab

    Damn! While not will. Too much Black Caviar champagne.

    I also got some cufflinks. Some of them were garish with opals, emeralds and rubies on them, I settled for stainless steel and black.

    Good choice. Cufflinks should be understand and classy not garish like a pimp or mobster or politican would wear.

    And who is Kandy? For that matter, who is Spiky? I just need to get up to speed with all the characters.

  121. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    One thing I regret about Sri Lanka, Dr. BG, was that my first husband and I considered ourselves to be fairly impecunious which we were not of course compared to the locals. Looking back, we did tip but in general were quite tight with our money and I can remember haggling in markets over very silly amounts. Just like many other First Worlders when abroad, we lost perspective on the relativities. We should have tipped more, paid more and been more generous. I would be these days.

  122. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Gab, Kandy is a place where the tooth of the Buddha is kept in a special temple by a pretty lake. It is slightly higher up from the plains although not in the very high areas. There is a great elephant parade every year there called a Perahera where caparisoned elephants parade the tooth around the small city, which was the traditional seat of the ancient kings and old nobility.

    Oh, Kandy is a place not a person. Thank you, Lizzie. One puzzle solved at least. I should have worked that out from Dr BeauGan’s punctuation.

    Exactly Gab.

    We are obviously endangering the planet so I think all exports of everything should be stopped.

    Imagine how much, gulp, oil is used to carry all that export crap overseas AND then to think of ships bringing stuff to Australia.

    The horror.

    And we have to stop flights into and out of Australia.

    You know it makes sense.
