    I want to know how much Yes is paying for the SMS messages. Telstra wouldn’t be providing them free, would it?

  2. Muddy

    If the SS’M’ vote goes down and Shorten gets in and vows to do it anyway, it would be a crying shame if no-one publicly used the line “Bill Shorten believes ‘No’ means ‘Yes.”

  3. Muddy

    It’s not just Telstra, PeterM. I’m with Virgin, and I got one too. Not fecking impressed. But I wouldn’t be surprised if this information was given as a ‘community service.’

  4. Snoopy

    Especially since he has form.

    I have a close associate in NZ who has taken up with a 50yo woman still sucking on the ‘I’m at Uni’ teat. I suggested that they could come to Oz and use my weekender. She vociferously refused because she won’t catch a plane because she is mindful of her carbon footprint. I advised her that the fing plane is going whether she’s on it or not, and asked her how she managed to get from the UK to NZ, given that it’s a long swim. I have not heard from them since and feel no sense of loss.

    They are saying it was randomly generated numbers. Given the number of Cats that got one, I don’t believe that at all.

    I’ve decided to step in for SRR this evening, so…

    Fear not about the quality of modern film making, for it will soon deteriorate badly:

    The Hate U Give (book) by Angie Thomas.

    A powerful and brave YA novel about what prejudice looks like in the 21st century. Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, this is a powerful and gripping YA novel about one girl’s struggle for justice. Movie rights have been sold to Fox, with Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) to star.

    Look out for a rash of these.

    Get this. My kid is going to the wedding of one of her friends in the next couple of weeks. The girl is a monster believer of ‘vironmental catastrophe. So much so that she claims she won’t have kids and to prove her position she forced her boyfriend to snip himself. Like she didn’t had he own tubes tied, but she got the dude to do it. FMD!

    This must be her method of getting past the SSM deal if the survey gets a no vote.’

    The problem is that child sex offenders only become known AFTER they have offended. As Bob Ellis was fond of saying, “And so it goes.”

    The Coalition for Marriage held their Victorian campaign launch in Melbourne on Saturday night, ahead of rallies across the country in the coming week.

    Security was tight at the campaign launch, but a small group of protesters managed to get inside. They unfurled a banner which read: “Burn churches not queers.”

    No mention of Mosques ?

    Missus had a link to some Canadian guy on Spacechook warning about the slippery slope etc.

    Thought I would google him up because Spacechook, FakeNews, you never know.

    Umm – makes for a pretty ‘interesting’ read:

    This Canadian Father Has To Go To Court To Defend His Children Against LGBT School Indoctrination

    ETFO* lawyer Kate Hughes argued teachers were mandated by law to positively represent homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenderism: to teach children not just to “tolerate” LGBTQ lifestyle, but to “honour and respect” and “celebrate” it.

    Jack Fonseca, Campaign Life Coalition’s senior political strategist, called Hughes’ assertion “a brazen, unashamed admission that indoctrination was the goal.” He told LifeSiteNews that she argued that “teachers have a statutory obligation to celebrate LGBT identities and same-sex relationships, and that if teachers aren’t embedding that celebration into every subject every day, then they’re not meeting the ‘statutory objectives.‘”

    * that’s the teacher’s union – who are four square opposed to this guy along with the Province of Ontario government and the school board !

    You are going to glow with Pride as your grandkids are done over by a group of Cert IV qualified Gimps at the end-of-year Safe Schools Awards Night. Or else.

    Buy something nice for you and Minido to compensate both of you for the nosebleed. Air travel does horrible things to the nasal passages. I suffer, and travel with lots of nasal sprays to forestall it.

    I am busy looking at French wallpaper designs online, to match my sudden ‘French’ period in our lobby. I have the curlicued antique iron and marble console and the large iron-fringed French mirror that sits on it, as discussed on the Cat last year; now I need to disguise an ugly door opening no longer used until another reno takes place there. Hairy has chosen the light fitting to ensure it is not too Frenchified; no chandeliers, he ordered me, but then took over, just in case. There is an antique chandelier shop in Edgecliff and he saw I have their card, for they take assignments to search for what you want. Thwarted.

    I thought I had better ‘take an interest’ in his sort of thing too, so I watched a bit of this Rugby League game, which he tells me is the penultimate one, for the Grand Final is next Saturday. It is a very close battle and he is jumping around in excitement, yelling out. Who are we going for? I ask conversationally. Da ones on da right, he says, eyes to screen. The Cowboys? I say, where are they from? Dey are from North Queensland, Lizzie, he says, we are da Roosters, from Eastern Sydney. But the Roosters are on the left, I say in puzzlement. We resolve it in the end: he was looking at the players on the screen, and I was looking at the score banner.

    Still, he is pleased I stayed there for a while, but I’m back at the wallpaper now.

    Sorry to hear that. Grandparents can play very influential roles in our lives.

    Both my grandfathers played an important role in my life. One taught me how to manage money, how to invest on the stock market, and how to run a farm in a marginal area.

    The other was a World War Two veteran. “Keep your head down. There is only one medal worth having, and that’s the “Returned From Active Service” badge they pin to your civvie jacket. Sitting round a pub table, in company with others wearing the same badge, and telling tall tales, is a good and worthwhile pass time.”

    I miss them all. God rest ye merry, grandfathers and grandmothers, all my forebears. I only hope I did half as well.

    I have a close associate in NZ who has taken up with a 50yo woman still sucking on the ‘I’m at Uni’ teat. I suggested that they could come to Oz and use my weekender. She vociferously refused because she won’t catch a plane because she is mindful of her carbon footprint. I advised her that the fing plane is going whether she’s on it or not, and asked her how she managed to get from the UK to NZ, given that it’s a long swim. I have not heard from them since and feel no sense of loss.

    National Party wins New Zealand vote count but Labour’s Jacinda Ardern won’t concede defeat

    @Jamie_WalkerOz

    A jubilant Bill English presented as an winner tonight, but stopped short of claiming a historic victory in the New Zealand election even though his National Party comfortably topped the vote count.

    The NZ Prime Minister declared: “The voters have spoken and now we have the responsibility of working to give New Zealand strong and stable government.”

    Labour leader Jacinda Ardern congratulated Mr English on winning a “majority of votes” but would not concede defeat, saying the outcome would be decided by negotiations with “kingmaker” Winston Peters, whose New Zealand First party holds the balance of power.

    The irascible Mr Peters said he wouldn’t be rushed into choosing between Mr English and Ms Ardern.

    The night belonged to National, which won 46.1 per cent of the vote and kicked 10 points clear of Labour in a decisive affirmation of Mr English’s leadership.

    Latest from the Oz. Another Labour bint tosses Teddy from the pram “But I did so want to be Prime Minister, I did.”

    Free grooming for every child.

    Sage Stimpy suggested recently that the next big ‘thing’ may be children identifying as adults. (Or adults convincing children they can identify as adults, and in fact are doing so without realising it). So if the ‘child’ (a demeaning and discriminatory term which must be abandoned pronto because it otherises a minority) identifies as an adult, then whatever you want to do with them isn’t an offence. Right? Because biology is an oppressive, patriarchal construct, and we can all be whatever our delusions tell us we can be. *Quack quack.*

    OK, definitely *quack* heading off now.

    Olde worlde french is just overworked pretentious bilge.

    Carpe, I have reached that conclusion on viewing what is available. Too airy fluffy chinzy for us. Yes, the Japanese ancients look good. Still like some of the William Morris too. It’s only for a blocked doorway which may eventually disappear, so it doesn’t matter too much. Perhaps I should call in a trompe d’oeile artist and have an Inigo Jones prospect put in there. It all gets turned into Santa’s Grotto at Christmas anyway and Santa isn’t fussy, as long as he gets his brandy and cake at midnight. 🙂

    Watched the last half of ‘Master and Commander’ with Hairy for the umpteenth time, one of our best films of all times, and now not seriously looking at a show on buying acreage in Brittany. Russell Crowe looks like a younger version of Hairy, according to some who knew him back in the day. I see some similarities, quite an Irish face, certainly the same set of the mouth and eyes.

    France really does have some interesting bargains, as our friends found in their magnificent house in the Dordogne, bought two years ago for far less than a simple house in inner Sydney.

    I’ll have to stay up to check on the price. These shows drag you in.

  86. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Nah. Too much work. Asking price two hundred and sixty nine thousand pounds, including some fees. I prefered the seven acres near the Huelgot forest; I’ve been there, and the Arthurian associations are strong and notable there in relationship to the ancient dolmens and other neolithic sites. Fascinating.

  87. Oh come on

    Frances Abbott is a personal trainer? Seriously? Is this the same classy looking young woman we so frequently saw during the election campaign in 2013?

    Anyway, waaaaay too blokey a figure for me. And if she keeps up her workout routine, in 30 years she’ll have the figure of Julie Bishop. Nothing to be working towards, IMO.

    I’m amazed at how blatantly the public service and big corporates are shilling for the Yessers. You’d think at the very least those driven by the profit motive would not take a public stance for fear of alienating a large chunk of their customer base.

    I think the Establishment genuinely the no vote is a tiny, unimportant, inconsequential rabble and they must show their support for the Yessers to avoid their wrath.

    Worse though is when the father treats a daughter like a son.

    Girls are so sensitive to what they think their fathers want them to be – if they get a whiff of that the father better cross grandkids off the list he’s getting a son with boobs – which a disturbing number of dads are pursuing aggressively these days saying things like “You can kick any boys arse in footy girl!!!” And putting them into the stuff they’d have put their son in. It’s so damaging the girls just wants to play dolls and ballet and hang around with mum but badly wants to please dad and buy into it for him.

  108. Oh come on

    Raising and observing my young daughter and my even younger son and the way they develop, the proposition that babies are born as blank canvases and their gender is imprinted on them by society is just laughably ridiculous. We never forced my daughter to love dolls and pretty girly things and drawing flowers and unicorns and whatnot. We never forced my two year old son to develop an obsession with trains, buses, earthmoving equipment (but especially trains – absolutely mad about them). These are their interests. If my daughter was a tomboy and my son a tomgirl, this wouldn’t bother me much and I wouldn’t try to change what they play with and what they play, but they’re both pretty typical boys and girls in that regard.

    Young kids are perfectly capable of letting you know what they’re interested in. Their parents really don’t need to interfere that much beyond ensuring they’re behaving themselves.

  109. twostix

    So then what happens is the sons end up with some girl or two in the boys activity. And so parents of the sons roll our eyes at the obvious situation and very sternly order our boys to remember she’s a girl and not to treat her like a boy – no aggression towards her, no fighting, be careful.

    Because we’ve all seen what happened when that one boy thought he could treat the token girl like a boy that one time… suddenly it’s all 1859 meltdown that he did that to a girl. Nobody wants their boy to be that boy.

    From what I’ve seen, kids are perfectly good at getting along together. The main problem is when adults involve themselves in children’s play. It’s so often under the guise of ‘no bullying’. Social Darwinism is out – we must be inclusive in our play, even if one anti-social child is butting into a game of another group of kids and expecting it to be played his or her way. No law of the schoolyard is allowed, no signal to this kid that screwing up another group’s game isn’t the way to be included – oh no. If they try that, a teacher is summoned, and the group is clumsily told to play nicely together. No one learns anything useful from this. The antisocial kid learns that they can behave brattily as they please and all they need to do is hide behind an authority figure who will draw upon some misguided idea about preventing bullying to force the others to accommodate the unsocialised child. The other kids inevitably start to despise the kid, whilst also learning that problem solving is best done via authority figures.

    The biggest joke is that teachers never stop telling each other and their classes about how they’re focusing on making students resilient!

  114. Oh come on

    Holy shit! Remember Valerie Plame from the Bush era? She became a darling of the nutroots crowd and still is to some extent, apparently. Recently, she retweeted an article by a guy called Philip Giraldi:

    “America’s J_ws Are Driving America’s Wars” …argues that American J_ws are war-mongering in the Middle East — specifically with respect to Iran — and that J_wish-Americans’ support for Israel creates a “conflict of interest” in foreign policy. Giraldi said the media should “be required to label [American J_ws] at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, eg. Bill Kristol is ‘J_wish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel”…[j]ust like labeling “a bottle of rat poison,”

    Wow…just wow. Apparently Plame thinks there’s nothing to see here, asserting that the article is

    “provocative, but thoughtful…many neocon hawks ARE J_wish.”

    Article via Insty.

  115. Oh come on

    I think a yellow star that J_ws have to wear on their clothing would also be useful so they can be readily identified by the viewers at home, as well as passers-by in the street such as peaceful antifa protesters and the like.

  116. Oh come on

    The only thing more idiotic than the idea of a grand J_wish conspiracy is the concept of the patriarchy. The patriarchy has got to be the dumbest conspiracy theory of all.

    A brilliant article from Quadrant:

    Professor Legutko and I grew up in the same epoch and political environment in the communist tyrannies of Eastern Europe. I escaped and came to Australia as a refugee in 1981, while he became involved with Solidarity in Poland. Now he is a leading member of the European Parliament.

    My point of view differs in part from his in that I have more sympathy for today’s voters, who must swim and struggle in the filthy oceans of propaganda the Left elite churns out. But I find his main thesis strikingly true:

    “There are increasingly ominous parallels between the communist tyranny we have known and currently developing versions of ‘liberal democracy’ ”.

    Totalitarian tendencies in those who increasingly dominate public life in the West – let’s call them the progressive elitists; Legutko hyphenates them, somewhat ambiguously, as “liberal-democrats” – have been pointed out before. It is the way these forces have behaved in Australia during the same-sex marriage and Safe Schools debates that awakened me so sharply. Don’t think me overly dramatic when I say you can smell the totalitarian threat in the air. Yes, right here in Australia.

    MILO Declares He Will Speak at UC Berkeley Despite Free Speech Week Cancellation

    Former Breitbart Senior Editor MILO still plans to speak at UC Berkeley despite the cancellation of Free Speech Week due to pressure from college administrators.
    http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/09/23/milo-declares-he-will-speak-at-uc-berkeley-despite-free-speech-week-cancellation/
    [the video at the link starts at 10 minutes. Silence before then …]

    MILO held an emergency press conference with Pamela Geller and Mike Cernovich via Facebook live on Saturday to address the issues surrounding Free Speech Week. MILO announced that while the Berkeley Patriot group was forced to shut down the week-long event due to pressure from the UC Berkeley administration, he would still be making an appearance on the college campus to speak to the many free speech advocates that had come to Berkeley.

    “First, I’m sorry to say that the student group hosting Free Speech Week has withdrawn its sponsorship,” MILO wrote in a press release. “We were not given advance notice of this and I’m disappointed to have been completely blindsided by their letter, a copy of which is available on my Facebook and YouTube. I do understand their fears and they are right on all counts when they say UC Berkeley is threatening their educational futures. But we cannot host an official university event without a student sponsor.”

    MILO had good news however for those that traveled to Berkeley for the event, however, declaring, “We will be hosting an unofficial university event. My security team confirmed to me this morning that the police department will be out in force on Sproul Plaza tomorrow at noon.”

    “We will not be deterred. We will proceed no matter what, in whatever format we can, to realize the promise of Free Speech Week and send a message that conservatives will not be bowed by pressure from academics, the media or anyone else,” he continued.

    “In my capacity as a private person I will give a speech every day from Sunday to Wednesday on the steps of Sproul Plaza and speak at length on the subjects Free Speech Week was advertised to cover,” MILO explained. “Although without student sponsorship we can no longer offer our speakers the police protection that would have come with an officially registered event at UC Berkeley, we nevertheless invite the Berkeley PD to make peaceable assembly in Sproul Plaza safe in the coming week, so that I, and anyone else who would like to speak in his or her capacity as a private citizen, can exercise our Constitutional rights without bodily harm. I will be joined tomorrow on the Berkeley campus by Mike Cernovich, Lauren Southern, Sabo, Ariana Rowlands, Lisa de Pasquale, and Pamela Geller.”

    MILO continued to criticize Berkeley and the administrators’ actions in weeks leading up to the event:

    UC Berkeley hypocritically named this academic year its “Year of Free Speech,” which is something you’d only do if you had a really serious PR problem. That PR problem will be worse, not better, today, and Berkeley has only itself to blame. The administration has done everything in its power to crush its own students’ aspirations. UC Berkeley may have a deservedly poor reputation for free speech, and its students will graduate knowing less than when they came in as freshmen, but you have to give the school credit: they are masters of bureaucratic dirty dealing.

    “Under the terms currently offered to us by the university, Berkeley Free Speech Week could be more safely held in a London no-go zone or in a Paris Shariah-compliant area,” MILO declared. “It would be safer to stand in a Stockholm ghetto and blame Muslims for the rape epidemic in Sweden than to embrace free speech in Berkeley, a town that considers ANTIFA its unofficial police force. Nonetheless, we will be continuing with our plans, albeit in modified form. I had hoped to use this press conference to discuss the speakers and events planned for Berkeley Free Speech Week. And I will. But that has become a little more complicated as of late last night. The first thing to tell you is that there will indeed be speeches and rallies this week, beginning tomorrow on the UC Berkeley campus.”

    MILO then addressed the fans that may have traveled a long distance just to attend the event and offered to remedy the situation as best he could:

    Even though I lay the blame for this event squarely at the feet of UC Berkeley administrators, I am going to make it right for the people who traveled in. Please forward your flight tickets, train receipts and hotel reservations to [email protected]. We have a huge surprise planned for you tomorrow. I deeply appreciate the efforts freedom-loving Americans have gone to in order to support this event and I am personally grateful to the fans who came in from all four corners of the earth. I want you to know that I share your frustration with the administration and with the media, and that I will take care of you.

    “We will see you at noon tomorrow on Sproul Plaza at UC Berkeley, and we will speak, come hell or high water,” MILO declared in his Facebook Live video. “No matter what the administration does, no matter the actions of the students, we will be there.”

    I feel comfortable about the gender split of my literary choices — this year I’ve so far read nine books by women and five by men. But a quick scan of those books reveals a different skew: a disturbing lack of ethnic diversity. In my to-read pile are books like Underground Railroad by black American novelist Colson Whitehead and The Return by Libyan writer Hisham Matar, but the books I’ve read are authored by a pretty monocultural bunch. Natalie Kon-yu, a lecturer at Victoria University, began working with the Stella Prize organisers to establish a Diversity Count in 2016. But an author’s diversity can be difficult to establish.

    That is from the ABC, who are obsessed with “diversity”. Unlike the author, I read books for entertainment and education. If the book is entertaining (mystery, thriller, science fiction) or educational (nature, photography, history), I don’t give a toss about the author’s “diversity”. It is all boring identity politics.

  162. Crossie

    They are saying it was randomly generated numbers. Given the number of Cats that got one, I don’t believe that at all.

    I don’t give a toss about the author’s “diversity”. It is all boring identity politics.

  166. Baldrick

    That is from the ABC, who are obsessed with “diversity”.

    … of everything, except opinion.

    It fixes it SOG.

  167. Twitter arguments are quite revealing. Today I extracted from a Yes supporter, among other things, the assertion that marriage is simply a creature of the state. Therefore, he declared, both, that the state can decide whatever marriage is, and that only the state has the power to confer the marital state on a couple, what have you. He said this wasn’t even worth disputing. Well, I did dispute it, and I said that he himself disputed this. How else do we explain his insistence that denying same-sex marriage to gays contravened their human rights which are supposed to be respected by states. His response was, so to say, Benthamite. He claimed that what I’d just said was piffle. I disagreed. I noted, further, that the UDHR agreed with me and declared marriage a human right and therefore no mere creature of the state to do as it pleased with it. His response, so far, was to block me. All in all, an entirely instructive argument and discloses well the beliefs and practices of Yes supporters.

    Hungarian-Aussie John Rigo’s essay on the Stalinist propaganda war being waged against the Australian democracy is so ominous and utterly brilliant, I have just bought a Quadrant Online subscription (H/T Lurker).

    Political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union
    From Wikipedia,
    There was systematic political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union, based on the interpretation of political opposition or dissent as a psychiatric problem. It was called “psychopathological mechanisms” of dissent.
    During the leadership of General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, psychiatry was used to disable and remove from society political opponents (“dissidents”) who openly expressed beliefs that contradicted the official dogma.

    Yes, “pooh jabbing” just don’t cut it as the right “euphemism”.

    Mass acid attack in London. Who could be responsible?

    Was at that same tube station three weeks ago.

    When you hear about a terrorist attack in Boston, or Mumbai, or Tell Aviv, you’re appalled – but it’s still a place you’ve never been to.

    When it happens in a place you personally know quite well, it really hits home just how unsafe the world has become.

    Because it could have been you.

    But she knows damned well their miseducation has worked, so millions of young Australians will respond as this very, very decrepit old chestnut is some sort of brilliant new idea rather than the tired old plank of the Communist Manifesto which it actually is.

    Very true. Most Australians below 35 have no clue whatsoever about the horrors of Socialism or the torment people endured under the Soviets. As we know, those who don’t/won’t/can’t learn from history are condemned to repeat it. This is why the left are so determined to control the education process and its content while removing the teaching of real history. Of course, we see plenty of resources dedicated to teaching our kids the history of Nimattjira mob from NE SA (woop woop) which is so valuable to their future endeavours. This is what passes for History Ed in this country.

    What the communist left are doing is telling, not just dog whistling but actually telling mentally ill dregs of society like “astro labe”, the acl bomber, “burn churches” man, etc that they have a green light to act out their violent impulses right now.

    All communist movements do this – form brigades of the violent mentally ill.

    I’m offering 3/1 that the guy who headbutted Abbott will be Australian of the Year.

    Gays Commemorate Historic Sexual Offences Act 1967 (The Wolfenden Report) Private Eye

    Had Wolfenden the Weak known what was to come, he would surely never have let the ‘gay’ genie out of the bottle. The Eighth Earl of Arran sponsored the Bill in the Lords, and warned the shirt-lifters not to take advantage of our traditional national tolerance by flaunting their perversion (or ‘disability)as the trendy traitor Roy Jenkins preferred to call it). Before that shameful day, an Englishman’s bottom was his castle, and woe betide those who attempted to breach it! I speak as a proud descendant of Judge John Bray, the scourge of the Western Assizes, who sentenced the so-called ‘Bugger of Winchester’ – a motley gang hanged for sodomy in 1623. He must be spinning in his grave as today’s bench-warmers oblige the sodomites’ every whim. Speak English

    I studded the legle system at uni and there’s all sort’s of descrimination stil going on. Did you know you can still be hanged for arse-ing in the royal dockyard? learn from history ppl! Jace 91

    Random my foot. Every phone in our house, four in total, received the “Vote Yes” message. If it was just one or even two they could claim so but 100% is not random.

    I’m sorry to disagree, but the range of mobile numbers is well known and computers can call millions of numbers in literally minutes if not hours.

    Here in Austria we have a wired phone that is never ever been used and even I don’t know the number, yet we have at least 3 daily calls on it. Nobody ever picks it up of course.

    She looks strong and well but kind of seedy in that competition. The Abbott girls always looked fresh and lovely young women. Wonder how the other two fared? The abuse heaped on their father must have made life difficult.

    Funny how when Frances smiles she is almost the spitting image of the Aunty Christine.

    Eveyday now we see why the perfect sympatico between the left and arab islam exists at this time.

    Same thought process, same tactics, same spirit animating them. The muslim cries out in pain “I am oppressed” as his neighbour lets off another nailbomb at a kids concert.

    The leftist cries out in pain “you are a nazi!” as his Twitter friend bombs your church and head butts you.

    Both cry out “you are an oppressor” as they have the statw crush you for saying something wrong.

    Both movments have a laiety whose entire power structure sits on a foundation of violence – soft violence through captured state power and institutions and hard violence by mentally ill shock troops when that is not enough – against opponents.

    One radical fringe that is growing is Mgtow, which stands for Men Going Their Own Way and pronounced MIG-tow. Mgtow aims for total male separatism, including forgoing children, avoiding marriage and limiting involvement with women.

    I got one when I turned on my phone last night.
    It doesn’t have to be a brute-force random – someone could get a list of real numbers without any names from their workplace. But lets see – 15 million mobiles times $0.02 per text – maybe $300,000 – one of the big telcos has been quite a donor. I wonder if its declared to the electoral commission?

  207. Crossie

    I’m sorry to disagree, but the range of mobile numbers is well known and computers can call millions of numbers in literally minutes if not hours.

    Then if the range is known the computer has obviously been programmed for blanket callout. They may not know who we are but nobody will be left out. Still not random.

  208. twostix

    The circumstances of the Tony Abbott headbutt are not disputed, but the motive clearly is…

    “Fears of an homophobicbacklash”

  209. Peter Castieau

    So in the usual mind numbing way the conclusion so far, it’s okay to head butt a former PM and renewables and subsidies don’t raise electricity prices!

  210. zyconoclast

    I’m amazed at how blatantly the public service and big corporates are shilling for the Yessers. You’d think at the very least those driven by the profit motive would not take a public stance for fear of alienating a large chunk of their customer base.

    The public service should stay out of it. Using our taxes to hit us over the head with their SSM dildo is just an unacceptable use of our money. Possibly in breach of their code of conduct as well.

    The problem with the corporates is that essentially in Australia you have a duopoly or oligopoly structure. You cannot directly or indirectly avoid using the likes of Qantas, Virgin, Telstra, Optus, nearly all major sporting codes etc.
    So you end up paying for their SSM promotion whether you like it or not.

    It is easy to pick on small/medium operators like Coopers beer or the childrens entertainment company in Canberra who sacked their vote no contractor.

    But picking on them doesn’t actually change anything.

  211. twostix

    It’s not random it’s easy to buy phone number lists and spam them. It’s seedy as hell.

    The probably spammed random numbers in the list – that’s where the random line sprouted.

    Obviously the fact tgat they’re lying about it means they’re nervous about the public finding out the truth.

    OK, it’s a matter of semantics then.

    When I’m home we regularly get calls from a certain charity, with the greeting ” good morning etc. “Mr Good”. I politely say “sorry wrong number” and hang up. We have a silent number. Is it random or what?

    Trumps asaault on the lefts cultural beachhead in the eveymans world is pitch perfect.

    Here is what Monty says today:

    26, I am not expecting indictments this year. They will roll out closer to the midterms.

    Here is what Monty said at the start of the month:

    So many Trumpkins are facing lengthy stretches in pokey. Nought to Nixon by November
    .

    Knowing that Monty’s story would no doubt change and he would try to wriggle out of his predictions when they inevitably failed – always check what Monty tells you – I wrote at the time:

    I have screen-shotted this claim by Monty. We shall return to it in November.

    We didn’t even get that far.

    Sad.

  235. I also see Trump has started failing on tax, after failing on Obamacare. Latest is that he has abandoned his campaign pledge of a 15% corporate rate, in favour of 20%. Ryan and McConnell won’t get that through either, because the Freedom Caucus won’t accept anything more than 16%. By the time Chuck and Nancy get their hands on it, the bill will probably raise it to 40%.

  236. Alex, I expect that by November it will be undeniable that Trump is replaying Watergate. As to whether Trump has the sense of shame to resign by then, I doubt it.
