    He then walked over to where the young man was sitting and from his standing position of 6’2, he punched the young man from below, striking his head, throwing his head back, and then walked off.
    No one at the bus stop did anything!!!

    Dear mini-Kevni,

    That would be because there was no-one else at the bus stop, including your imagined pouvophobe.

    That would be because you’re a pathological liar like uncle Kevni.

    PLEASE help us identify this man. He is described as Caucasian, about 185cm, grey hair, short on side and longer on the top. He has a stubbly grey beard. He was wearing a greeny yellow stripped button up, short sleeved shirt, with khaki shorts. He was quite large with a beer belly.

    and who says:

    Perp: did you just call me a homophobe?

    I am not sure that a Piss Head Pete as described above would either know what a ‘homophobe’ actually is, and would take offence even if he did, given the description of the earlier events ?

    There is something – odd – about the events so described.

  6. Adam;

    Does anyone know the actual details of this? I can’t believe that something like this could be passed. Well, I can believe it but I can’t, if you know what I mean.

    As a display of arrogance, one would have to go far back in history to surpass this.
    And I hear that in the current climate of urgency in the Australian Parliament, Malcolm Turnbull has taken the time to ban 2stroke whipper snippers.

    Doomlord, I think it’s time for the thread from Corey on Civil Disobedience. This government is out of control.

    I wonder if the ‘libertarian’ Turnbull promoters here are happy with today’s law eroding freedom of speech.

    Will we see a series of posts (similar to all the S18C ones when Abbott was PM) from ‘Management’ decrying what has happened today?

    And I hear that in the current climate of urgency in the Australian Parliament, Malcolm Turnbull has taken the time to ban 2stroke whipper snippers.

    Cory also says:

    Labor, Liberal, Greens, National and One Nation parties all stated they supported the bill.

    For the Nats and PHON to back this is completely crazy, especially the Nats.
    Forget about voting for either of them, the only choice is AC or the SFF (and I don’t know the position of the latter on this bonkers ban).

    I don’t know what they’ve put in the water of this country but it seems to’ve turned almost all politicians’ brains into green mush.

  15. thefrolickingmole

    Labor Senator Joe Bullock resigned so this freakshow could get back in to the Senate.

    He had a metaphorical shovel left on his lawn..

    Deeply divisive

    Senator Bullock’s elevation to the Senate was mired in controversy after he displaced Louise Pratt for the number one spot on the ALP ticket in Western Australia. Louise Pratt was a prominent campaigner on LGBTI issues within the Labor party. At the time she lashed the factional stitch up and said Mr Bullock was “deeply homophobic.”

    Joe Bullock publicly questioned Senator Pratt’s sexuality: “…after her [then] partner’s sex change I can’t be quite sure, but I think she’s a lesbian. So she’s a key spokesperson for that persuasion. And they were very keen to see that a person like me couldn’t get into the Senate,” but later apologised for the remark.

    His resignation came on the same day Facebook joined forces with Australian Marriage Equality and offered social media users, including politicians the opportunity to add a banner supporting change on their profile.

    Brave man.

    Will the ARU fully support him as other codes support Moslem players who hide beer sponsorship logos based on their religious beliefs?
    ( note that the players still accept beer sponsor money)

    Luckily Folau is brown. This should take a lot of the heat away from him.

    New emissions standards could see new car prices rise by $5K.

    Not content with gifting us with the world’s most expensive urban housing and electricity, politicians are now aiming for Australians to have the world’s most expensive new cars.

    Some poor buggers in for a severe education from Colin.

    Speaking of sociology and its clown school connotations:
    I will gladly sow gender confusion in kids. It’s my duty to.
    So says Colin Cremin, a sociology lecturer who uses the workplace – and his colleagues and students – in order to indulge his transvestite kink:
    While I’m delighted to contribute to the breaking down of hetero-fascist biases, this was not the principal reason I started dressing to work as a woman. No doubt to the disappointment of colleagues in sociology, I never suffered from being born into the wrong gender… I dress as a woman because I like wearing women’s clothes. I like the look of the westernised feminine aesthetic. I like the feel of the silky fabrics on my body. I like the process of selecting outfits, matching up jewellery and shoes and putting on makeup.
    And apparently all that fetishistic cosplay really needs an audience, preferably an involuntary one, during office hours. How terribly selfless.

    As I recall, one of the goals of the Essen conference in 2009 was to reduce private car ownership.

    The major European powers are all announcing the phase-out of sales of new petrol and diesel powered cars by 2040.

    Not ‘at 2040’ – done and dusted by then.

    Volvo has already announced they are ditching development of conventional engines because they can’t afford the R&D spend to meet the emissions rules.

    Other will soon follow.

    The thing is, anyone who imagines that electric cars are going to be rolled out at the price points and widespread availability and utility of the existing car fleets is kidding themselves.

    This is a statement clearly in line with Mutti Merkel’s ‘Great Transformation’ conference.

  36. Roger

    This is no doubt why Israel Folau felt compelled to speak publicly (as is his right).

    Now, why does a rugby team have to have a publicly expressed view on SSM?

    The members of the team will have their own views, but to say the team supports SSM is absurd, just as corporations having views is absurd. The rights of conscience must prevail over such virtue signalling.

    All Follau dared to say was that he was voting no. Hardly vilification, but will be accused of being.

    Then we have this :

    Shirley Finn’s daughter says her mum’s lesbian lover has more to tell

    The Australian
    4:27PM September 13, 2017
    Andrew Burrell
    WA Chief Reporter
    Perth
    @AndrewBurrell7

    The daughter of murdered brothel keeper Shirley Finn has claimed her mother’s lesbian lover Rose Black “knows more than she is saying” about the gangland-style killing that has intrigued Perth for the past 42 years.

    Bridget Shewring, who has campaigned for years for an inquest into Finn’s murder, today had the chance to speak about the events of the night of June 22, 1975, when she was 13 years old.

    She described her life as the daughter of a wealthy madam, including how she had once discovered wads of cash in her bedroom and the existence of a secret safe in her mother’s room.

    Ms Shewring told Coroner Barry King that she thought the actions of Ms Black on the night of the murder were “odd”.

    “I believe Rose knows more than she’s saying in the (police) statements,” she said.

    Ms Black, also known as Rose Dean, has never spoken publicly about the crime and it is not known whether she will be called as a witness at the inquest.

    Ms Shewring said Ms Black been living at their South Perth house as her mother’s lover for about 18 months at the time of the murder. She was five years younger than Finn.

    Ms Shewring recalled how Ms Black had left the house on the night of the murder when she was meant to be babysitting Bridget.

    She checked into a city motel around midnight and phoned the house at 1.00am to ask Bridget to check whether Finn was home.

    Ms Shewring said she checked the bedroom, where there was no sign of her mother. Ms Black eventually arrived home around 4am.

    “I think that’s rather odd,” Ms Shewring said.

    “She’s gone out to visit a friend, then she’s booked into a motel at midnight and she’s arrived home at 4 o’clock in the morning.

    “Why would you go out and visit a friend? If my mother was so desperate for a babysitter, why didn’t Rose stay home that night and babysit instead of going out …”

    Finn was being investigated by the tax office over a $100,000 debt and had allegedly been threatening to name those to whom she had paid kickbacks when she was found dead at the wheel of her sedan at Royal Perth Golf Course.

    There has been speculation linking the murder to corrupt police officers, politicians and rival brothel madams.

    Today, Ms Shewring said a report made by two police officers in the days after the murder contained details that she had never told them in interviews.

    These included a claim that her mother had told Ms Shewring that “all her (Finn’s) troubles would be over tonight” and that a man was interested in buying her business.

    “She never spoke to me like that,” she said.

    Ms Shewring also described how her teachers took her took her out of school the next day to inform her of her mother’s death.

    She said she believed Finn worked as a “sort of nightclub owner” and had no idea she was involved in the prostitution business.

    The inquest continues tomorrow.

    For West Australian Cats. This is an oldie, but a goodie.

    How’s the chutzpah of the Muzzos in Myanmar.

    Their terrorist army (ARSA) launched attacks on the Burmese Army who proceed to kick Muzzo arse and boot them back to Bangladesh where they belong. The Muzzos then declared a ‘truce’ so ‘aid’ can be delivered to ‘civilians’. LOL who did they think they were fighting, a western country?

    Guess what, it doesn’t work that way in SE Asia. Despite the west and the press trying to paint the Muzzos as victims, the government of Myanmar chose instead to look after the national interest and get rid of the terrorists and their supporters.

    Western countries should watch and learn. We will all have to go through sooner or later. Either that or join the caliphate.

    ABC TV Breakfast also played a clip of some turd obfuscating saying that AEMO didn’t say there would be a National Grid energy shortfall in future. Crap!

    To be fair, Audrey Zibelman said yesterday AEMO didn’t need more baseload power but better mechanisms for handling the variability of solar and wind, e.g. batteries, and that in the meantime “demand management” – electricity management jargon for the carrot and stick approach with consumers – would be used to ward off the prospect of load shedding.

    She believes the transition to renewables is inevitable and the government should set policy to facilitate that.

    I fear it’s going to be a long, hot summer.

    Donated to Cory Bernardi’ Australian Conservatives today. And a few $ to Michael Smith too, just keep up the good work. But…
    Dear Cori, happy to support you as you are the voice of reason but you have no runs on the board and you need some. And
    Dear Pauline Hanson, I admire your bravery and tenacity and am willing to forgive your lack of smarts. But this week you and your bunch of pea-brained wannabes voted to outlaw 2-stroke engines. I have had 2-stroke motorbikes, outboards and chainsaws and I still have a 2-stroke lawnmower. I bought petrol and 2 stroke oil which provided employment in a chain of production (which is a good thing) and taxes to government (which isn’t anymore) so that you can earn an income the envy of the mass of Australians. I have voted for your party and donated from time to time but other than winning a few seats you have no runs on the board. no reduction in Islamic immigration and no cuts to the ABC and so on. After the 2-stroke vote you actually have negative runs on the board. As dumb as you look and sound.

    Kevin Rudd’s godson ‘victim of same-sex marriage attack’

    Kevin Rudd has tweeted a photograph of his bloodied godson saying he was a victim of an attack related to the same-sex marriage debate.

    In the tweet, the former prime minister said Malcolm Turnbull had been warned about what the postal vote could unleash and that his godson had been punched for “standing up for #MarriageEquality’’.

    It is understood Mr Rudd’s godson is Brisbane musician Sean Foster.

    The 19-year-old was attacked in the riverside suburb of Bulimba, in east Brisbane yesterday morning by a man who was tearing down rainbow flags which had been put up by local Yes campaigners and yelling slurs about gay people.

    A post on the “Bulimba 4 Mariage Equality’’ Facebook page alleged the man then directed slurs at the teenager, who was waiting at a bus stop, who responded: “That’s okay, I don’t like you’’

    The man then asked if Sean had called him a “homophobe,’’ and when he answered in the affirmative, he was struck.

    Queensland Police have confirmed that they have taken a statement from a 19-year-old who was attempting to” prevent a man from taking down rainbow flags on Lytton Rd, Bulimba when he was assaulted’’.

    It comes as rugby union star Israel Folau has spoken out in opposition to same-sex marriage, breaking ranks with the football code and sparking a social media backlash.

    Folau, a devoted Christian, took to Twitter this afternoon to say: “I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. But personally, I will not support gay marriage”.

    The comment, which came the day after the ARU unveiled a rainbow marriage equality logo as a mark of the organisation’s support for same sex marriage, has so far attracted more than 400 comments — and almost twice as many “likes”. However, many respondents have accused the player of hypocrisy and denying gay people their human rights and equality.

    “Israel Folau thinks gay people deserve less rights and freedoms than he enjoys,” said Chris Kennedy, national correspondent at NRL Digital Media. “Could be using his profile to do good.”

    “Then don’t get gay married!” said another Twitter user. “Your opinion should not stop people living their own lives.”

    Folau’s comments have also shined the spotlight on the difficulties that can arise when organisations, clubs or businesses take positions on contentious causes, despite individuals within the group holding differing views.

    Folau’s stance is also at odds with the Wallabies side, which announced it would take a stand for marriage equality, joining the Football Federation, Cricket Australia and the NRL to support the ‘yes’ campaign.

    Tony Abbott joins fire fight

    Tony Abbott has been hailed as a hero after saving a house from ember attack while battling a bushfire burning near his Sydney northern beaches electorate of Warringah.

    The former prime minister has ditched parliament in Canberra, taking emergency services leave to man water pumps for his local Davidson Rural Fire Brigade, where he has volunteered since 2001.

    This afternoon embers from the Beacon Hill bushfire ignited local resident Barry Cafe’s fence.

    Mr Cafe told local paper the Manly Daily that it wasn’t every day that a former prime minister saves your home.

    “I told everybody, ‘I’m fine, Tony’s here’,” he said.

    “He’s a top bloke … We couldn’t do without them (the Rural Fire Service).”

    The fire has burnt through more than 34 hectares at Red Hill Reserve in Beacon Hill since a suspicious fire which started on Monday reignited.

    More than 100 firefighters are battling the blaze, including Mr Abbott.

    A spokesman for Chief Government Whip Nola Marino confirmed Mr Abbott had been granted a pair in parliament.

    Interestingly, Mr Abbott’s leave comes courtesy of a bill he introduced himself as Employment and Workplace Relations Minister in 2003, when he legislated to protect the jobs of emergency services volunteers.

    It’s not the first time Mr Abbott has left parliament to fight a fire.

    As Prime Minister in 2013 Mr Abbott joined his Davidson crew to battle the horrific Blue Mountains bushfires which claimed the lives of two people, destroyed 500 buildings, and burnt through 118,000 hectares.

    Tony Abbott joins fire fight

    From The Comments

    – I don’t know if he was a good PM, but he is a bloody good bloke!

    Whereas Turnbull can’t tell when his backside is on fire.

    – Abbott saves a home while Shortens lot burnt down 200 of them with pink batts. About right.

    – Thank you Tony Abbott for putting people, homes and the natural environment — ahead of the mindless political ‘games’ emanating from Parliament House, Canberra.

    And — a thank you to the Opposition too — for putting up a ‘pair’ to cover.

    – Doing more for the country in one afternoon than the whole lot of those clowns in Canberra have done for the country in the last 6 months!

    Tony has a pair, to do it. Nothing prepares you for it, when you first join the RFS. Not the smell, the heat, the fear, and the noise. You have to put your life in the hands of senior fighters like Abbott, and do as you are told, or you jeopardise your life, and those around you. Fires make their own wind, and swirl around you, that’s when you look to your Capt. and keep on going. Having been in the Brigade since 1993, I understand that side of the man, whom no doubt will be rediculed by some here, people, who from their cafes, who wish to make fun of the man, and his brigade. The community of RFS would love five minutes with these people, for a reeducation moment, insulting any of our members, is to insult us. Regardless of what you think of the man, ask could you do what he does. If not, leave him be.

    Michael Kirby says gay Australians ‘singled out’

    Former High Court justice Michael Kirby says the start of an historic postal plebiscite to pave the way for parliament to legalise same-sex marriage does not make the issue “any the less painful”.

    Mr Kirby, who addressed University of Adelaide graduates today as he was awarded an Honorary Degree of Doctor, spoke of the “existential challenges we must face as a nation and as individuals”.

    He said a High Court legal challenge, resolved last week, “shows once again that gay Australians are singled out for discrimination and unequal treatment”.

    “Last week the High Court of Australia upheld the legality of a postal survey about the enlargement of the availability of marriage to sexual minorities. It held that the survey was legal. But that does not make it any the less painful,” he said.

    “To submit the rights of a minority of citizens of this country to the voting decision of a majority of others — as a precondition to the mere possibility of having the issue considered in the normal way in parliament, as our Constitution envisages, is very hurtful.

    “It is hurtful to me. It is hurtful to my partner of 48 years, Johan. It shows once again

    that gay Australians are singled out for discrimination and unequal treatment.

    “But it also shows the primitive nature of our constitutional protections for equal treatment under the law. And that there is nothing apparently in the Constitution or the laws of Australia or the vigilance of judges that can protect us from having to jump extra hurdles and face outright hostility.”

    Mr Kirby initially declared he would have no part in the postal ballot but later said he had always intended on voting Yes if it survived various legal challenges.

    Last month he drew fierce criticism from the Anti-Defamation Commission, a Jewish community group, for referring to the Holocaust while empathising with those, like his long-term partner, Johan van Vloten, who will not participate in the postal vote.

    Today, Mr Kirby said that “all we can do is proceed to vote Yes and hope that our fellow citizens of goodwill do likewise”.

    “So that by a resounding vote for equality, parliament can no longer neglect and delay a decision

    on this matter. As it has shamefully done throughout this year and may continue to do hereafter, whatever the vote in the survey,” he said.

    Malcolm Turnbull yesterday said he and wife Lucy were voting yes and encouraged others to do so.

    “I’d be delighted to see a ‘yes’ vote and I’d be especially pleased to see a very high participation,” the Prime Minister said.

    “So I encourage everyone to complete the survey and have their say. This is all about giving every Australian a say on an important issue.”

    In South Australia, the issue has divided the state’s Labor government. Premier Jay Weatherill supports a Yes vote, but his Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis will vote No. This is despite his cabinet colleague, Environment Minister Ian Hunter, being openly gay.

    In 2012, Mr Hunter married his long-term partner of more than 20 years, Leith Semmens, in Spain. He was Australia’s first sitting gay politician to be married.

    In today’s speech, Mr Kirby referred to the case of 41-year old University of Adelaide law lecturer George Duncan, who drowned in 1972 after being thrown in the Torrens River “for no reason other than a suspicion that he was gay”.

    The illegality of homosexual behaviour meant that witnesses were reluctant to come forward and Dr Duncan’s assailants were never convicted.

    “No one has ever been found guilty of that crime,” Mr Kirby said.

    “Last year, this university decided to place a photograph of Dr Duncan at the entrance to its Law School, 40 years after his death.

    “This was done so that all reflect on the irrational hatreds that our country’s people and then laws imposed on Dr Duncan. And on others. And on me. So that we would resolve to avoid all such inequality and discrimination in the future: whether against gays or other minorities.”

    Mr Kirby also reflected on global “existential dangers”, drawing on his time as United Nations human rights inquiry chairman when he “unveiled the crimes against humanity of North Korea against its own people”.

    “Little wonder that other nations of the world are losing confidence in the capacity and inclination of the nuclear powers to save the planet,” he said.

    “Little wonder that, in large numbers, they have propounded a completely new treaty to ban the possession, use and threat of use of nuclear weapons, which the present nuclear states, and Australia, refuse to support.

    “More than at any time in the past 50 years an urgent existential danger therefore faces all humanity.”

    He warned Australians were at risk from a nuclear-armed North Korea.

    “So we must think on it. We should not banish it from our minds, even on this day,” he said.

    Mr Kirby also made a pointed reference to the recent Australia Day debate, saying there were “certain objective facts to be remembered”.

    “The antiquity of the indigenous people who lived in this land in harmony with nature long before our forebears arrived. The breathtaking confidence of the colonists who established their communities here: with no slaves or convicts,” he said.

    Mr Kirby recalled his first contact with the University of Adelaide in 1954, when from Fort Street High School in Sydney he wrote to “the great scientist and explorer” Sir Douglas Mawson, who was a professor at the university.

    “I begged an article from him for the school journal, Mr Kirby recalled. “I received letters from him, post marked Adelaide. They were signed with the neat handwriting of that age.”

    Ontario passes ‘totalitarian’ bill allowing gov’t to take kids from Christian homes | News | LifeSite

    TORONTO, June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.

    Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.

    Bill 89, or the Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017, repeals and replaces the former Child and Family Services Act that governs child protection services, and adoption and foster care services.

    It adds “gender identity” and “gender expression” as factors to be considered “in the best interests of the child.”

    At the same time, it deletes the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child as a factor to be considered, and mandates child protection services consider only the child’s own “creed” or “religion” when assessing the best interests of the child.

    “With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history,” says Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition.

    “Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”

    “Disappointed as I am with this result, I am not surprised,” commented Tanya Granic Allen, president of Parents As First Educators (PAFE). “The Kathleen Wynne Liberals have for years been pursuing their anti-parent and anti-family agenda and Bill 89 is the latest installment.”

    Conservative MPPs present at Queen’s Park for the vote opposed the bill, which was in stark contrast to their position at second reading in March, when 83 of Ontario’s 107 MPPs passed Bill 89 unanimously.

    The Conservatives who voted June 1 against Bill 89 included Monte McNaughton, Jeff Yurek, Bob Bailey, Gila Martow, Todd Smith, Michael Harris, and Steve Clark.

    PC leader Patrick Brown was not in the house for the vote.

    Trillium Party MPP Jack MacLaren also voted against the bill.

    A source present at a Tory caucus meeting two weeks ago told LifeSiteNews the Conservative members were swayed by “three or four” MPPs who said they could not in conscience vote for what the source described as a bill that is “fundamentally and morally wrong.”

    The PC caucus, now at 28 members, thereupon decided to vote as a block against Bill 89, according to the source.

    Fonseca lauded those PC MPPs who “came to their senses, stopped listening to that propagandist for Kathleen Wynne’s policies, and I do mean Patrick Brown, and chose to finally vote against tyranny.”

    “And thank God they did, because it serves as a symbol of resistance,” he said.

    “CLC had been directly lobbying MPPs to oppose the bill, and we believe that may have been a factor in why the PCs ended up voting en masse against it.”

    Parents As First Educators and the Association for Reformed Political Action (ARPA) have also been at the forefront of relentless lobbying against the bill.

    But despite these efforts, no Liberal broke ranks to vote on behalf of concerned parents, and a number of New Democratic Party MPPs voted for the bill as well.

    Bill 89 retains the provision in current law that a child who is suffering or “at risk of suffering” mental or emotional harm and whose parents do not provide “treatment or access to treatment” is in need of protection under the law.

    But while the former law said the Children’s Aid Society should take the “least disruptive course of action,” Bill 89 adds “including the provision of prevention services, early intervention services and community support services,” according to an ARPA analysis.

    “The implication is that intervention should not be presumed to be more disruptive than non-intervention,” the ARPA report adds.

    Statements by Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau clearly signaled the pro-LGBTQ, gender ideology Liberal agenda, critics warned.

    Coteau, who introduced the bill, told QP Briefing he sees questioning teenagers’ self-identification as LGBTQI or telling them to change as abuse.

    “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” he said.

    “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”

    Children’s Aid agencies now have “a type of police power to bust down your door, and seize your biological children if you are known to oppose LGBT ideology and the fraudulent theory of ‘gender identity’, if for instance, some claim is made that your child may be same-sex attracted or confused about their ‘gender,’” according to Fonseca.

    “We already see similar tyranny happening in other jurisdictions, such as Norway, where the main child protection service there, Barnevernet, has been involved in numerous high profile seizures of children from traditionally-principled families,” he added.

    Fonseca pointed out the Liberal bill gives legal cover for government workers to discriminate against Christians who want to adopt or foster children.

    “Even before Bill 89 was passed, but immediately after its introduction in December, I learned of several Christian couples who were turned down for adoption on account of their deeply held religious beliefs about traditional marriage and human sexuality,” he told LifeSiteNews.

    This reveals the “stunning hypocrisy and anti-Christian bigotry” of the left, Fonseca said.

    The Ontario court in 1995 ruled “for the first time in Canadian history that it was ‘discriminatory’ of the Child and Family Services Act to not allow homosexual couples to bring a joint application for adoption.”

    But the “same activists who cried discrimination in 1995 [are] now actively legislating the same discrimination upon Bible-believing Christians, by banning them from having children through adoption,” Fonseca said.

    “Will the left never feel ashamed of its hypocrisy?”

    Fonseca also issued a plea to Christian leaders, particularly the Catholic bishops.

    “Why has the most powerful spiritual body in this province, the Catholic hierarchy, not lifted a finger nor raised a voice to oppose this tyranny against Christian families, and those from other faiths?” Fonseca questioned.

    “The lack of spiritual leadership is killing us. Every single time that Liberals, either federally or provincially, roll out the LGBT juggernaut to take away our rights, or to demonize us as bigots, we hear nothing but silence from the Church. This has to stop.”

    Just read the Product Emissions Standards Bill 2017 which Cory has got in his sights:

    Summary

    Part of a package of four bills to introduce national emission standards for new non-road spark ignition engines and equipment, the bill: enables the minister to prescribe products as emissions-controlled products and make rules relating to those products; provides mechanisms in the rules for emissions-controlled products to be certified to specified emissions standards; provides that the rules may exempt persons or products from the operation of one or more provisions of the bill; establish offences and civil penalty provisions relating to the import or supply of certain emissions controlled products; triggers the compliance and enforcement provisions of the Regulatory Powers (Standard Provisions) Act 2014 (regulatory powers Act) and provides additional compliance and enforcement powers; enables the sharing of information with other agencies and the publication of certain information relating to an emissions-controlled product; enables the delegation of the minister’s and the secretary’s functions and powers under the proposed Act or the regulatory powers Act; and requires a review of the operation of the proposed Act at regular intervals.

    At first blush this looks like a reasonable anti-pollution Bill but a cursory reading of it reveals its true nature:

    3 Objects of this Act

    (b) (ii) assist in giving effect to Australia’s obligations under 20 one or more of the Climate Change Conventions. 21
    Note: For Climate Change Conventions, see section 7.

    Climate Change Conventions means: 10
    (a) the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate 11 Change, done at New York on 9 May 1992; and 12
    (b) the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework 13 Convention on Climate Change, done at Kyoto on 14 11 December 1997; and 15
    (c) the Paris Agreement, done at Paris on 12 December 2015; 16
    as amended and in force for Australia from time to time. 17
    Note: The Convention, the Protocol and the Agreement are in Australian 18 Treaty Series 1994 No. 2 ([1994] ATS 2), 2008 No. 2 ([2008] ATS 2) 19 and 2016 No. 24 ([2016] ATS 24), respectively.

    Hmmm.

    [glances at bullshit meter]

    ATTENTION:

    we need YOUR HELP to identify a man who unleashed a violent homophobic attack yesterday in Bulimba.

    In Bulimba. Riiiight.

    As you know, our rainbow flags were ripped down from the Oxford St roundabout, but much worse, we just found out that a young local man was assaulted when confronting the perpetrator pulling down the flags.
    The perpetrator was yelling:
    You know what I hate? faggots!
    I hate fucking faggots!

    There’s a high, whining sound coming from my bullshit meter now.

    He then looked straight at the young man (who was waiting for his bus) and said:
    I hate fucking faggots!
    So the young man said:
    That’s ok, I don’t like you.
    Perp: did you just call me a homophobe?
    Young man: yup.

    So a large violently angry man yelling Americanisms says ‘ did you just call me a homophobe?’
    And I am seriously expected to believe this?

    My bullshit meter sounds like an animal in pain.

    He then walked over to where the young man was sitting and from his standing position of 6’2, he punched the young man from below, striking his head, throwing his head back, and then walked off.
    No one at the bus stop did anything!!!

    So it’s now a 6’2″ man with 5′ arms now.

    PLEASE help us identify this man. He is described as Caucasian, about 185cm, grey hair, short on side and longer on the top. He has a stubbly grey beard. He was wearing a greeny yellow stripped button up, short sleeved shirt, with khaki shorts. He was quite large with a beer belly.
    If you saw him along Oxford St or you were at the roundabout or bus stop (Riding RD) yesterday morning, please contact me with any details. Anything could help us!! This man is dangerous and must be found.

    Emotive wailing and a description that is the standard leftard imagining of a PHON supporter.

    Oh dear. My bullshit meter just melted down into a puddle of molten slag.

    I am calling bollocks on this one.

    Hairy now watching Sydney FC and I am cooking da dinner wit’ a timer. We should be good. ‘Hashies’ on (commercial hash browns; we love ’em). Corn boiling. Steak ready for 3 mins a side. Eggplant and zuchinni in the oven, salted, washed, squeezed and oiled in a tight pan. My first cooking since we returned. We have been eating out or calling food in. Hold fast to two sit-down with the kids dinners per week though.

    A bit earlier a Trivago ad came on. There’s your girlfriend, I say companionably to Hairy. She’s not my girlfriend .. yet, he replies. I look up from reading the Cat on the sofa and give him my enquiring stare. He dances around merrily, enjoying dis. I turn the stare into that French tromp d’oeil that brooks no opposition. He retreats, and we watch Rita Panini for a while on Bolt. She is cute, I say as she expounds very cleverly on the power crisis. I know you like her, I admit to Hairy. You have my permission, I say grandly. Just been reading Philippa Gregory’s latest, where Queen Eliz 1 gets very grand and controlling over the other likely Tudor heirs – the family lineage of Lady Jane Grey. Must have rubbed off a bit.

    Today we went to a matinee performance (Hairy got special tickets which is why it was matinee) of My Fair Lady. He knows I like this show and wanted to surprise me. He left work and picked me up at 12.15 and drove us in, deciding to sing some of da songs to me on the way. He has a trained voice, choral scholar, and put us both in the mood. I will tell you more about this performance later. We found it very good to getg away from the modern world for a while, and so may you.

    To quote from the interesting “How to be an alpha” Jordan Petersen piece put up earlier by srr, he is talking about the biological basis for morality as it has evolved over millions of years –
    “You have a counter, at the bottom of your brain, that keeps track of where you are, in terms of your status, and it bloody well regulates the sensitivity of your emotions. So if you are at the bottom of the hierarchy, barely clinging on to the world, everything overwhelms you.”

    I love how the media is spinning Folau’s stance as something setting him ‘at odds’ with the ARU. The ARU does not speak on behalf of the rugby union players and supporters of this country. As for the NRL being extorted by the threat of bad publicity coming out in favour of phony marriage, its authority over the genuinely working class people comprising its base is utterly laughable. The number of evangelical and pentecostal Islanders in the game is, alone, enormous. Purporting to speak on their behalf on this matter is not only astonishingly arrogant but undeniably racist.

    Rohyngas- having had direct dealings with a number of them IMO they as a group have brought their current situation on themselves.
    Homos- are reminiscent of Rohyngas in their sense of entitlement, lack of consideration of the sentiments of the majority, intent to colonise those that are not of their very small circle, and lie and scam to get their way; but are generally accepted and supported in Australia. This may change if they continue their current bullshit.
    The issue is that people individually on a one-to-one basis show the same range of empathy more or less.
    This is why I have some association with homos in spite of their unsanitary and often disgusting foibles that we choose to not discuss. To give them credit where it is due, they refrain from criticising me to my face for being attracted to women.
    The Rohyngas can be engaging, however I have not met one who is not malevolent.

    Electorates with lowest support for same-sex marriage may be ignored by MPs despite postal survey.

    As many as four of Australia’s most traditionally-minded electorates may be ignored by their MPs in a same-sex marriage vote in Parliament.

    Nationals MP Mark Coulton revealed to the ABC that if the national vote climbs to 60 per cent in support of same-sex marriage, he is likely to ignore the result from his constituents in the seat Parkes in western New South Wales — even if they strongly back No in the postal survey.

    Meanwhile … name the faith Labor politicians passionately respect, despite opposing SS”M”:

    Three senior Labor MPs in Western Sydney — Chris Bowen, Jason Clare and Ed Husic — support same-sex marriage despite minority support for change in their electorates.

    Mr Coulton described talking to his community about the issue as a “no-win situation”, but Mr Clare, MP for Blaxland, said he was confident that his stance would not alienate voters.

    Blaxland covers suburbs such as Auburn and Bankstown which having higher-than-average rates of religious faith.

    “Back in the 2013 election campaign, an organisation put out flyers attacking me for voting for marriage equality in 2012, and it didn’t change the vote, people still supported me,” Mr Clare said.
    “There will be some people that come up and say ‘I don’t support your position on this issue’ and I will say ‘fair enough, you’re entitled to your opinion’ —that’s democracy.”

    The attack on Rudd’s godson is disgraceful and the person who did it needs to be sent to jail. There is no excuse for violence of this type, whatever the cause. However, for Rudd to say that he has been attacked because of “standing up for marriage equality” or to attempt to blame Turnbull for it is pathetic. There have always been violent, homophobic morons present in society and there will continue to be, regardless of the plebiscite or whether gay marriage is legalised. It is foolish to pretend that this type of hatred would vanish if there was a “yes” vote, just as it is foolish to blame the vast majority of those peacefully opposed to gay marriage for the actions of this thug.

    1. Marriage, at the present time, means a certain thing. If you want to change the definition than by all means argue your case. But it is not a matter of equality – lots of heterosexual people do not get married and are no less equal.

If the AMA can take a public position in favour of gay marriage and the PM can do the same, why can’t those who oppose the matter not take a public position as well.

    For goodness sake can we separate marriage and who it is properly intended for from any opinion about gays? the “yes” people have conflated the two issues successfully, so much that it is almost impossible to even say you do not support the notion of two men or two women supposedly marrying each other. As to living together, having party to celebrate your relationship, or doing anything else you jolly well want to, go for it, but marriage it is not, unless you accept that its meaning has completely changed.

    Who sat back and watched their children grow into these….creatures of muppetry, who then spread their wonderful ideas to more children?

    Dear Dr. Stimpy,
    There is icky gooey stuff all over my SSM ballot paer.
    What should I do?
    from worried.

    Sticky tape the envelope, DO NOT LICK.

    That wound is self inflicted

    And perhaps one media organisation might have even penned an article saying ‘some have questioned the alleged attack’.

    The ‘some’ being The Cat again – which a few media folk peer at when they get a chance.

    But the Israel Folau scourging will have every Green-Left journo in the country ( and that’s about 95% or more of them ) turning over every available page of Izzie’s life to paint him as ‘Literally a Nazi’ – so no other prominent sports types break ranks.

    Given the next QANTAS Faillabies game is against the Pumas in the People’s Rainbow Republic of Zombie Parrotville, I doubt Izzie will be allowed to run on for fear of triggering the Yes Crowd.

  228. Oh come on

    Good point, carpe. No bruising or swelling from a punch to the face? This could get interesting.

    Folau tweeted: “I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. but personally, I will not support gay marriage.”

    Wow.
    I thought all rugby players were gay?
    Crazy times.

    Tony really does have a good soul, but what a fucking idiot as PM.

    Tony Abbott has been hailed as a hero after saving a house from ember attack while battling a bushfire burning near his Sydney northern beaches electorate of Warringah.

    Carpe, I should imagine that, in a previous existence, you’d have sewn up the participants in more then one “full and frank exchange of views?” Asking for a friend.

    @Fisky, I’m libertarian. In isolation I would vote “yes” because it wouldn’t matter. As laws now stand this is not a simple issue.

    I will be voting “no” because freedoms are not legislated in Australia. Anybody could be the victim of lawfare. Me included. Freedom of speech and conscience along with property rights MUST be legislated before allowing SSM.

    You are wrong in describing the libertarian position.

    Pocock’s tweet quoting Tutu implies Israel is homophobic …

    Really, who cares?
    Homophobic, Nazi, Wussian, Islamophobic … They’re all meaningless.

    Mark Riley is not a vegetable in a nursing home because TA is a better man.

    And that ‘wound’ looks more like a mono-brow alleviation mishap than a punch.
    Either way, I don’t care.

    Remember, the Rudd’s do have a habit of cutting themselves for publicity.

    Don’t be so optimistic, as pendulums don’t always swing back. The trend can keep going.

    It won’t be a pendulum.
    It will be a f$cking guillotine.

  237. Snoopy

    Really, who cares?
    Homophobic, Nazi, Wussian, Islamophobic … They’re all meaningless.

    You wouldn’t be saying that if those four were in car hurtling towards you at almost full speed.

  238. Oh come on

    The more I look at that photo of KRudd’s godson, the more I think:

    1) low budget horror flick makeup
    2) emo tosser

  239. Infidel Tiger

    It won’t be a pendulum.
    It will be a f$cking guillotine.

    I pray you are right.

    Tim Blair has thrown open the floor for comments on the Bulimba Terrorist Rudd Attack.

    Pedantically, one notes Tim has parsed from The Australian article on the brutal Rudd attack in which we are informed the initial report was on:

    “Bulimba 4 Mariage Equality’

    There is not one but two people’s bylines on the story in the Oz, seemingly neither of whom knows how to spell ‘marriage’ if the spell checker isn’t doing it for them.

    Nonetheless, they have managed to find plenty of criticism of Israel Folau over the subject of marriage/mariage.

    I am not expecting The Oz to delve deeply into the Bulimba Ruddgate Terror event.

  241. Stimpson J. Cat

    I pray you are right.

    You can pray all you want, but if you do not indoctrinate your children with your beliefs, morals, and culture, and raise them to be potential leaders, then nothing will change.

    Either way, I don’t care.

    I’m offering to sew up that “wound” the way I’ve seen cut sheep sown up in a shearing shed – with a length of dental floss and a darning needle. Anesthetic? Whats that?
