    Sautéd in their own jus, with a bitter sauce d’hubris.

  2. Marcus

    Let’s imagine the more general application of his rule:

    Attorney-General George Brandis has argued that statutory rapists should not be disqualified from society if they “honestly swear” they had no idea the girl was only 15.

    I think in that scenario, the equivalent defence would be that the girl had a fake ID so the so-called statutory rapist couldn’t reasonably know that she was 15.

    Not that I’m a lawyer or anything. But this whole citizenship fiasco is over a big fat lot of nothing. Unless anyone’s suggesting that Barnaby Joyce is really a sleeper agent for the People’s Republic of New Zealand, this surely falls under the category of being a victimless crime?

  3. twostix

    Marcus you weak cuck the entire point of a national government is that the people in it aren’t citizens of another country.

    They should have to be born here, jonny-come-lately has no business presuming to rule over me.

    Short of that the minimum they can do is make sure they pretend to have a modicum of loyalty to this place.

  4. twostix

    Barnaby is a complete fake. In hindsight it was so obvious all along, he tries too hard to be a TV approved larrikin country bumpkin and it comes off as weird. Such a kiwi.

  5. C.L.

    I see Brandis the weirdo was in the news for another reason yesterday.
    Announcing that henceforth he will be …

    Making access to sex-change drugs easier for teens.

    FEDERAL Attorney-General George Brandis is controversially backing a push to make it easier and quicker for teenagers to access sex-change drugs.

    The nation’s top law officer has said hormone treatment is “therapeutic” to treat the “disease” of gender dysphoria and should no longer need Family Court approval.

  6. twostix

    The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

    When I was a kid I knew a kid who was hemophiliac and who had HIV.

    I don’t even know if he’s alive anymore.

    They pretended that they just got caught off guard in the ’80’s “we didn’t know!”.

    Now they know, and they deliberately are going to do it anyway.

    What we have on our hands here is an old fashioned Old Testament style death cult.

    FEDERAL Attorney-General George Brandis is controversially backing a push to make it easier and quicker for teenagers to access sex-change drugs.

    There are going to be so many lawsuits against the Commonwealth and State government, starting around the year 2035, we can hardly imagine. Anything from failing to uphold duty of care in schools, to coaching children into make life-changing medical decisions that cause irreparable harm. There is no way lawyers aren’t cashing in on this.

  8. Stimpson J. Cat

    Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.
    The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-
    positive.

    And sane people think the Government had nothing to do with AIDS.

    Confirmed!!!!

  9. twostix

    Meaning, I presume, mum and dad no longer have the ability to prevent it in any way.

    Brandis thinks by doing all of this, that for the first time in his life, he will be regarded as cool.

    People have no idea how prevalent that mode of thought is amongst the loser / nerd set at the moment, it’s literally Revenge of the Nerds. Except here, instead of inside our non-fiction nerds there being a cool kid waiting to get out, here in reality there’s just weak, pathetic losers who would (do) sell out their own mums to get a taste of sweet, sweet pop-cultural approval.

  10. Fisky

    It’s incredibly stupid and short-sighted of the homosexual lobby to be basically promoting the right to infect other people with HIV. Yes, I know they are deranged haters for the most part, but seriously, think for a little. You are 2% of the population, which has only just won acceptance in the White world (no, don’t even bother in the non-White world, it ain’t happening), and now you want to double down on all kinds of threatening degeneracy that whoever takes over the West will extinguish in five seconds. If it’s not the Muslims who throw you off buildings first, the Chinese will seize your body for medical experiments and organ harvesting.

    So it’s a little bit dumb to be acting in ways that I suspect led to our Hebrew forefathers to write all kinds of harsh measures into their Bible.

    Now my suspicions are confirmed.

  13. C.L.

    Absolutely fantastic Liberal government.
    They tried to jail Bolt and Leak, passed “emergency” laws to jail Christian opponents of gay ‘marriage,’ approved of Safe Schools, want 11 year-olds to have all the drugs they want to mutilate themselves and have banned electricity production. And we keep hearing from Liberal Party LaWoBeWoists that – as bad as it is – we owe them fidelity because Labor Would Be Worse.

  14. twostix

    Also Brandis is definitely trolling conservatives.

    He’s swishing his brandy around, listening to some opera enjoying the cries from those bigotty low brow conservatives.

    In many ways he’s a small man…(all ways).

  15. twostix

    The comparison of Brandis to George Costanza is pitch perfect.

  16. Cold-Hands

    London car attacker is in custody. I’m guessing they’ll run with “mentally disturbed” because judging from his appearance, it can’t possibly have anything to do with the Religion of Peace.

    Alan Dershowitz Discusses “Calm Before The Storm”…
    Posted on October 7, 2017 by sundance

    At times Alan Dershowitz can express insufferable political opinions that can make blood pressure cuffs explode. At other times, on the libertarian side of liberty principles, Dershowitz becomes an ally against the insufferable overbearing administrative state. He’s an odd duck, but carries a quacker worth hearing.

    In this segment, the subject matter is well outlined. However, that said, along with every single person in media and punditry, Dershowitz is not connecting President Trump action to the economics of the Trump foreign policy doctrine.
    *
    If people would spend more time studying DJT they’d see the foreign policy strategy of President Trump clear as day. POTUS Trump surrounds himself, optically and vocally, with the overwhelming appearance of military solution providers. This is not accidental; it is entirely by design.

    Two million people, out of a population of eight million died from hunger, disease, or plain outright murdered, and the Left and their fvcking howler monkeys gibbered about how the Khmer Rouge coulnn’t be any worse then the Lon Nol government. Well, you got that one wrong didn’t you, you morons.

    How do you kill 2 million out of 8 million?

    All their slush-brandis had to do was be ab alternative to hanson-young/yin-yeng wong/slush-shorten.

    It made the considered opinion to copy the ideas of the left and simply be a lickspittle of Stalin.

    When slush-brandis hears julie skeletor-bishop say in cabinet that she is going to flitter over to Paris and sign de-industrialisation conventions so that the older Australians they hate will freeze to death next winter, as genocide is the Final Solution to the racist settler colonial Australian problem?.

    He simply claps and says:

    “oh, that’s so brilliant julie bishop”

    Their genocide george brandis is going to do all he can to wipe obsolete Australia from the face of the earth.

    Southern Security Border Wall Prototypes Under Construction…
    Posted on October 7, 2017 by sundance

    The first set of eight border wall prototypes are under construction. The Daily Mail has an article showing drone footage from the area and a few of the prototypes competing for border wall contracts. –SEE HERE*– The first four contracts to build the prototypes were worth $400 to $500 thousand each and are targeted toward “concrete and reinforced concrete” prototypes.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/border-wall-1.jpg

    There will be four additional prototypes using alternate material. The second set of prototype contracts will surround “alternative material” concepts. USCBP previously announced awarding four of those contracts in a similar fashion.

    Each segment of prototype is thirty feet wide and thirty feet high (30′ x 30′), and will be the backdrop of a 150 foot wide border enforcement zone.

    We must remove the U.N. from our lives.
    They will destroy us.

    All of our ills come from U.N. agendas, even much of our Marxist education systems doctrines, (through environmentalism) and their enthusiastic warriors embedded there.
    The liberal party are no more than their puppets.
    Your local councils are under their control.
    It sounds like a conspiracy theory but it isn’t due to the fact that you only need to be a leftist at heart, and the U.N. is your perfect excuse to destroy Australia.
    Local councillors seek the U.N.
    They want to comply.
    Just like Turnbull.
    They use the U.N. as an excuse to wreck the joint.

    I make this point this morning as I feel I do from time to time seem a bit over the top about the global socialist control central U.N.

    How can they gain control like many are saying?

    Because leftist go screaming to them more than the other way around.
    Add the bought and paid for by the U.N. and China, and we are in real strife.
    The U.N. is the leftists excuse to wreck the joint that must be eliminated.

    Brandis is the reason the Liberal Party must be annihilated in the next election. He has been the person pushing the worst legislation I have seen in this country in my life.

    In this country, in the lower house, currently, we either vote for the ALP or the LNP. I will vote for the ALP because, despite the CMFEU controlled Labor party, I do not think they will be as awful as this utterly phony “liberal” party.

    Brandis is the slime you step in and then spend weeks trying to get off your shoe. In the end, you find that the only solution is to throw those shoes away: they are ruined. Turnbull and Brandis have ruined the Liberal Party. They will stink to high heaven until the end of days.

    Yes, it would have been tight with a 17pdr in that turret.

    FWIW, I think they would have been better off building a 25 pdr turretless assault gun, but they were keen to have a turret.

    A turretless 25pdr assault gun would have provided greater hitting power than the Valentines did, and the production would have been simpler than a turreted tank.

    “Mr Corbell’s Bill also expands the description of vilification, which already makes it illegal to incite hatred, serious contempt, or severe ridicule. He is adding “inciting revulsion” to the illegal acts.

    Also, instead of limiting vilification to “public acts”, all actions that are “communicated openly, or observable publicly”, will be covered, even in a place not generally open to the public, such as a workplace. This includes posts on social media, if they can be seen by the public, along with wearing clothes, signs or flags that would incite hatred, contempt, ridicule or revulsion.”

So, I will grit my teeth, hold my nose, and let my vote go to the ALP. The CMFEU/ALP may be criminal but they are “honest”; the LNP enabled Brandis is evil.

    1. Europe belongs to us, and we belong to Europe. These lands are our home; we have no other. The reasons we hold Europe dear exceed our ability to explain or justify our loyalty. It is a matter of shared histories, hopes and loves. It is a matter of accustomed ways, of moments of pathos and pain. It is a matter of inspiring experiences of reconciliation and the promise of a shared future. Ordinary landscapes and events are charged with special meaning—for us, but not for others. Home is a place where things are familiar, and where we are recognized, however far we have wandered. This is the real Europe, our precious and irreplaceable civilization.
    2. Europe, in all its richness and greatness, is threatened by a false understanding of itself. This false Europe imagines itself as a fulfilment of our civilization, but in truth it will confiscate our home. It appeals to exaggerations and distortions of Europe’s authentic virtues while remaining blind to its own vices. Complacently trading in one-sided caricatures of our history, this false Europe is invincibly prejudiced against the past. Its proponents are orphans by choice, and they presume that to be an orphan—to be homeless—is a noble achievement. In this way, the false Europe praises itself as the forerunner of a universal community that is neither universal nor a community.A false Europe threatens us.
    3. The patrons of the false Europe are bewitched by superstitions of inevitable progress. They believe that History is on their side, and this faith makes them haughty and disdainful, unable to acknowledge the defects in the post-national, post-cultural world they are constructing. Moreover, they are ignorant of the true sources of the humane decencies they themselves hold dear—as do we. They ignore, even repudiate the Christian roots of Europe. At the same time they take great care not to offend Muslims, who they imagine will cheerfully adopt their secular, multicultural outlook. Sunk in prejudice, superstition and ignorance, and blinded by vain, self-congratulating visions of a utopian future, the false Europe reflexively stifles dissent. This is done, of course, in the name of freedom and tolerance.

    Note also the prominence this statement gives to marriage and the family. Any individual, organisation, or party that claims the mantle and patrimony of Western civilization but also supports the redefinition of marriage errs gravely.

    MV is right and wrong. The “sole purpose” of preferential voting is not to channel our vote to one of the two major teams but it works that way because there are only two major teams and because politics has become a “profession” and people wanting to get into politics know that their best (and only) chance, in the lower house, is to sign onto either the ALP or the LNP. The ALP is moving further left and the (idiotic) LNP is following them in the (deluded) belief that this will win them votes. The death spiral of the LNP under (left wing) Turnbull and Brandis demonstrates how stupid this is.

    Shorten is universally loathed, propped up by the unions, and will be the next PM because the LNP are useless. How awful this outcome becomes, will depend on the Senate and that is an unknown. Minor parties are becoming major factors in the Senate and I do not see either the LNP or ALP having a majority in the Senate after the next election. So Shorten, and the ALP, will have to negotiate with the Senate to get anything major done and that Senate will have left leaning, and right leaning, minor party players holding the balance of power.

    As for MV; he has, as far as I can tell, opted out of “playing this one-sided, rigged game”, so he does nothing but snipe from the side lines. I do not blame him at all! He has done far more than I have, or ever will, to try to change the system. I merely offer my opinion; I do not criticise him.

    Even a change of format has not been able to stop Australia’s batting collapses, with India easily chasing down a reduced target in the rain-curtailed first T20 international. The visitors lost 7-69 in Ranchi as they limped to 8-118 before weather ended their innings with eight balls remaining.

    Nothing can stop Australia’s batting collapses. There is nothing more reliable and predictable than an Australian, middle order, batting collapse.

Or he felt he was the devil or some kind of god taking retribution.
    A rather Grigoryesque reply.
    He built up his arsenal over a year, it wasn’t a snap decision.

    Egg, I’m not sure Grigs would make such a response. He’s not much good at copying style, and this one is what Candy uses, with frequent hesitancies, viz ‘I guess’, ‘I kind of think’, ‘some kind of ‘. On the issue itself, it’s not unusual for someone with a persistent delusion, what forensic terminology calls a ‘fixated’ person, to plan over a long period of time to try for an expression of it, or a conclusion to it. Candy may not be right, but it is a valid (and popular) opinion.

    Grigs couldn’t write two sentences without the snide coming out. Candy doesn’t do that. For years Candy has made the same sort of often simplistic but sometimes cut through responses, although she’s definitely become more grammatical and politically aware over time. Most of her responses though are still the ones that you hear in the pub and supermarket. The best examples of the genre are calling out the obvious in plain language, what I call the Mandy Rice Davies response regarding Profumo: ‘Well, he would say that, wouldn’t he?’

    Yes, if I could change one thing, it would be the preferential system. It may have served in the past (I’m not saying it did; I don’t know), but it does not now. It is gamed to the max in the lower house. I don’t want a proportional system, because that seems to produce even worse outcomes. I would go for a system where you assigned your preferences as far as you wanted.

    The actual criminals are those actually (financially in the case of those who have taken money from foreign governments, morally in the case of those who have given money or support against the interests of Australia to foreign organisations, such as the Clinton Foundation or the UN in the hope of receiving future personal benefits) indebted to non-Australian interests.

    Exactly. That applies 100% to, say, Sam Dastyari, who took money from China and publicly argued for China’s interests in contravention to Australian government policy, and even his own party’s stance. But citizenship has nothing to do with it – there’s no question of Dastyari being a Chinese citizen, by descent or otherwise.

    The people who’ve actually been caught up in this mess aren’t actually “indebted” to the countries they’re supposedly citizens of. In Barnaby Joyce’s case, for instance, the New Zealand parliament just declared him, and people like him, a citizen of New Zealand before he was even born. Maybe I’m wrong, but I can’t recall when he’s ever used his position in the Parliament to advocate for New Zealand’s interests above Australia’s, so where’s the wrongdoing that should disqualify him from Parliament?

    SOG, I spent the last two federal elections urging people to mark their HoR ballot “WDM” so that the Liberal scrutineers would know they “lost” a vote, and making an informed vote for minor party candidates in the Senate. And that is precisely what I did myself.

    I no longer have either the wherewithal or the energy, healthwise, to traipse all over the country, living out of a suitcase, speaking in halls, churches, even lounge rooms, to any group that would have me, as I did during the anti-ID Card debate, setting up the CEC’s, or establishing ARBA, but I would, if I still could.

    You’d think with all the legal and illegal intelligence services at President Barack Obama’s disposal that Harvey Weinstein would have been the last person he let his wife pack off their young daughter to go and work for … or quiet the opposite … would explain Malia’s perpetually dead inside face and cutting lose, skanking it up, underaged in nightclubs … you know, a kinda cry for help to the world that still worships her most evil parents –

    Welcome To Tinseltown, Malia Obama!

    Forget politics, Malia Obama is gearing up for a future in the entertainment industry following her stint as one of the First Kids. Get it, girl!

    On Thursday, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Barack Obama’s eldest has scored an internship with famed Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Very impressive.

    It’s believed Miz Obama will begin working at the New York office of The Weinstein Co. this upcoming February. While it’s unclear which department the up-and-comer will be placed in, it is speculated she’ll join either the marketing or development teams. But, why is she starting next month?

    Well, the 18-year-old’s family is taking a vacay in Palm Springs not long after Donald Trump’s inauguration. And now that Malia’s no longer the First Daughter, and not currently in school (she heads to Harvard University in the Fall), perhaps she just wants to keep herself busy?

    Nonetheless, this isn’t the first time Malia’s expressed an interest in working in the film and TV business. As you may recall, back in 2015, the politician’s kid worked as an intern in New York on Lena Dunham’s HBO hit, Girls. Still, working for Weinstein is far more prestigious than working for Dunham… just sayin’!

    Although, we can’t say we’re surprised to learn Harvey has extended an internship to the future Ivy Leaguer as the Hollywood powerhouse has held several fundraisers for President Obama in the past.

    Regardless, we think Malia is a welcomed addition to the Tinseltown fold! Welcome.

    Furthermore…

    Ms. Dench pulled down her pants and flashed the tattoo at Mr. Weinstein at a celebrity lunch she arranged at the Four Seasons in 2002 with Mike Nichols, Nora Ephron, Carly Simon and others, and again at the BAFTA awards when Mr. Weinstein asked Ms. Dench to show his gift to a skeptical Oprah Winfrey at Royal Albert Hall.

    Seven Incredible, Unanswered Questions?, 1821
    The Still Report
    Oct 7, 2017

    Good morning, I’m still reporting on: Seven Incredible, Unanswered Questions?, 1821

    Synopsis: As we hurtle towards the one-year anniversary of the surprise election of President Donald, it’s safe to say that the horrible mass termination in the City of Lights late last Sunday evening was driven by two nearly unstoppable forces – those who lost a lot with the Trumpet’s victory; and those who now make no secret about openly encouraging violence to somehow overthrow him and/or the revocation of the Amendment that guarantees a citizen’s right to keep and bear personal safety devices which rhyme with buns.

    The President and 1st Lady visited the injured survivors of the tragedy on Wednesday. I sincerely hope that they chose to speak to Clarke County Sheriff Joe Lombardo – in private!

    Since his press update last Wednesday, Sheriff Lombardo has not been seen in front of live TV cameras. Why? Because Sheriff Lombardo is an honest lawman – a straight-shooter who tells the truth.

    What did he say on Wednesday that got him in so much trouble?

    1. That the photos taken inside the shooters-nest on the 32nd floor of the hotel that rhymes with “men delay” – were not supposed to get out to the public and breech was the subject of an internal investigation.

    2. That the shooter wanted to survive. He was not interested in dying, himself.

    3. The shooter had an escape plan and that he had seen the evidence of this. And you can’t survive an evil event like this without a really good escape plan.

    4. That the shooter could not have acted alone.

    He’s in trouble because blurting out the truth – just like our current President – the Trumpet. Telling us that there was more than a lone gunman meant there was a conspiracy to pull off this complex, expensive and physically demanding vindictive public termination on a scale never before seen in this nation.

    And it doesn’t matter if there was only one killer or 10, he couldn’t have done this alone, and that is now out there. Those who want to cover up what really happened can now never get that genie back inside its opaque bottle. Try as they might, the MSM will never credibly be able to claim that he acted alone.

    In Gaza, Hamas levels an ancient treasure

    Archaeologists began excavating Gaza’s earliest archaeological site nearly 20 years ago, unearthing what they believe is a rare 4,500-year-old Bronze Age settlement.

    But over protests, which grew recently, Gaza’s Hamas rulers have systematically destroyed the work since seizing power a decade ago, allowing the flattening of this hill on the southern tip of Gaza City to make way for construction projects, and later military bases. In its newest project, Hamas-supported bulldozers are flattening the last remnants of the excavation.

    “There is a clear destruction of a very important archaeological site,” said Palestinian archaeology and history professor Mouin Sadeq, who led three excavations at the site along with French archaeologist Pierre de Miroschedji after its accidental discovery in 1998. “I don’t know why the destruction of the site was approved.

    Yeah – it’s a mystery /Sarc.

    As for MV; he has, as far as I can tell, opted out of “playing this one-sided, rigged game”, so he does nothing but snipe from the side lines.

    SOG, I spent the last two federal elections urging people to mark their HoR ballot “WDM” so that the Liberal scrutineers would know they “lost” a vote, and making an informed vote for minor party candidates in the Senate. And that is precisely what I did myself.

    Apologies, MV. I should not have made that remark, that way. But, you did selectively quote, as immediately following that sentence, I wrote this:

    I do not blame him at all! He has done far more than I have, or ever will, to try to change the system. I merely offer my opinion; I do not criticise him.

    I no longer have either the wherewithal or the energy, healthwise, to traipse all over the country, living out of a suitcase, speaking in halls, churches, even lounge rooms, to any group that would have me, as I did during the anti-ID Card debate, setting up the CEC’s, or establishing ARBA, but I would, if I still could. Nonetheless, I think even my severely curtailed efforts amount to a bit more than “sniping from the side lines”.

    In response, I would repeat what I wrote above. Even when I had the health and energy, I would not have done what you did, for a variety of reasons. Now, I am very much the “keyboard warrior”, and my own efforts do not amount to more than “sniping from the sidelines”. (I did think “WDM” was misguided but did not, and do not, have a better idea.)

    Libyan force seizes control of migrant smuggling hub

    A Libyan armed group has claimed victory over Italian-backed militias paid to staunch the flow of migrants to Europe from the coastal city of Sabratha.

    The Anti-ISIS Operations Room, created last year to clear Sabratha of Daesh (ISIS) militants, said in a statement that they have taken control of the city from the Martyr Anas al-Dabashi and Brigade 48 militias after a weeks-long battle.

    Over the summer, Italy began funneling resources to the two militias after they agreed to stop facilitating the flow of migrant boats and start blocking them instead.

    FFS – the Italians are so bent over by the illegals invasion they are paying bribes to armed jihadists to try and slow the rubber dinghies down.

    Meaning turning on and off a flow of rubber dinghies is going to be an ongoing industry amongst all the Libyan militias – with an ever-escalating price tag for the off-switch !!

    This is so stupid it beggars belief !

    Obama knew he could send his daughter to Weinstein even though Obama would have known about the casting couch etc. Not even Weinstein would try it on with Malia who doesn’t fit Weinstein’s profile – she isn’t white and pretty.

    It’s the CULTure of normalising doing anything for Hollywood fame, that is dangerous.

    Malia was The President’s Daughter. The daughter of The President already famous for making every illegal thing he wanted, to happen with a scrawl of his pen on executive orders. He and his wife could have placed their daughter with any big nob, but chose the man known for keeping the casting couch culture alive.

    They made it clear to their daughter that, That Is How You Do Things.

    The world is full of parents just like them. Parents who above all else, hate President Trump for not being anything at all like them. Parents desperately shitting themselves trying to destroy The Trump Family and Presidency before the rest of the normal parents in the world finally figure out just how entrenched that, Own Child Sex Slave Trading CULTure is amongst the super rich & powerful minions of the UN.

    Meant to say something yesterday about Melania’s white top with the red high-waisted Spanish flounced pencil skirt. The skirt was good. The top was too tight and also a bit too ‘heavy’ in its uniformity. That cling jersey moulds obtrusively, and even with her perfect figure, you should leave such garments for the gym or lounging around. I’ve dumped all of mine, because not a perfect figure like hers (I’m not willowy enough), and they just don’t feel comfortable; she looked uncomfortable in it too. Plus she was wearing one of those t-shirt bra’s with no seams, through which you can often see an outline of a nipple. I think they also tend to pull your assets somewhat out of shape. I don’t think FLOTUS should show nipple, yet you could clearly see the outline of areola and tip on her right hand side boobie in one of the pics (i.e. she wasn’t cold and it would look even worse if she was). Wear something close if you wish, but lighter, and make sure it has a cute little bolero attached to it. That skirt can take it.

    Jill Poulson (no, I don’t know who she is either):

    TEENAGERS are idiots. I should know. I spent my teenage years as King of the Idiots. My various idiot acts included trying to skateboard down a slippery dip, throwing a cup at my mum in a hormonal rage and a particularly appalling Supre school disco outfit. Your brain just isn’t properly developed and it leads to some seriously questionable choices. That’s the reason I wholeheartedly support Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest’s proposal to federal and state governments to raise the smoking age to 21.

    She was stupid, so other people’s freedoms should be curtailed. (I don’t smoke.)

    “When tobacco causes many times more cost to the nation than it ever brings in revenue and creates extreme suffering before palliative care and death there is something seriously wrong with any government in the world, particularly ours, tolerating it,” he said.

    This has been debunked on The Cat previously: taxes on cigarettes raise more than the costs of smoking. Taxes on tobacco have been steadily increasing because it is the one tax increase that governments can get away with.

    Also this week, Menzies School of Health researcher Marita Hefler took it one step further and called for a complete ban on the sale of cancer sticks. Any other product that killed two in three users would be banned from sale, she said.

    Utter crap. I don’t know where the 2 out of 3 figure comes from but I am quite certain it is created by adding in all sorts of peripheral things.

    Somehow I managed to avoid ever trying a cigarette until I had left school but at age 17 I reached peak idiot — I tried a cigarette. I know for a fact if it had been illegal to smoke, I wouldn’t have. I know for a fact that if I made it to 21 without smoking I would never have started.

    Idiotic. No-one knows “for a fact” what they would have done 10 or 20 years ago.

It’s very woman for herself really. 🙂

  146. Senile Old Guy

    The ABC are running a sob story:

    It was a Sunday morning when Kate cooked blueberry pancakes for her three children and told them she was leaving. She told them they would be staying in the family home with their father and she would move several hours away to Sydney. Kate said she decided to leave because she believed it was best decision for everyone, especially her two sons and her daughter. “I am very very proud of my decision, because I believe it’s the best possible outcome given the scenario we were faced with.”

    No, it was a selfish decision.

    But things changed when her husband lost his job. She had to go back to work, and the marriage broke down. Despite the separation, she and her former husband continued to share the family home and split the care of the kids 50/50. This situation worked for a while. But eventually they both started dating again and their relationship deteriorated to the point where they were headed for family court. “I actively made the decision to not engage in a custody dispute, to not engage in the family court at all, because I believe that the children deserve to have a positive relationship with both parents,” Kate said.

    She walked away.

    After Kate made her decision she soon found out how harshly women are judged when they choose not to be the regular carer of their children. “The reactions were vicious, venomous… and an absolute assassination of my character,” she said. When she first left, a neighbour told her children their mummy had abandoned them. Over the years, she’s been told she’s selfish. And at one point she intercepted a series of vicious emails in her workplace. “I’ve been told I’m ruining my children’s lives. Women have said: ‘I’m not like you, I couldn’t do that, my children come first no matter what’. That I have chosen my partner over my children,” she said. “I did what I believed was best for my children, and it was also about having needs of my own. I don’t need to martyr myself to define my motherhood and my person. This is something expected of mothers, and it’s not fair.”

    It was all about her. If you are a parent, then you martyr yourself, if necessary, at the very least, until your children are adults. This does not mean surrendering to their every whim, or ignoring your own needs, but it does mean doing your best for them, when they need it.

    FWIW, I think they would have been better off building a 25 pdr turretless assault gun, but they were keen to have a turret.

    Can the ABC get more vacuous? (Rhetorical question: of course they can.)

    A film about Yolngu knowledge of cyclones, or Burrmalala, has been launched in Arnhem Land in preparation for the coming cyclone season. In Wata Burrmalala — Cyclone Culture, residents from Ramingining and Milingimbi communities talk about how their ancestors’ ancient knowledge contrasts with modern weather tracking. The film aims to share this knowledge with younger residents, along with warnings about responding to cyclones in modern times. “All of those information sources are in English,” one resident said. “They use many technical or academic words — it’s very difficult and often meaningless.”

    Cyclone warnings do include technical words but the main part of the message is simple and plain; and it is certainly not “meaningless”.

    Yolngu men, James Wapiriny Gurruwiwi from the Galpu clan and Andrew Galitju Burarrwanga from the Gumatj clan, were both involved in the film’s production. “It’s important for people to learn, the younger generation today — some, they don’t know these stories,” Mr Gurruwiwi said. As a boy, during the so-called “mission days”, Mr Gurruwiwi asked his grandmothers how they predicted cyclones. “No radar, not satellite, no tracking,” he said. “They just feel the land itself and they straight away know.”

    Spare me f*cking days! “They just feel the land itself and they straight away know.” This is stone age mysticism. Is there any evidence offered to show that any of this actually worked? Of course not! This is “traditional knowledge”, so whether or not it is complete bs is irrelevant.

    When making a sandwich is a crime against feminism

    Predictable.

    WHEN young Sydney mother Maddie asked her closed Facebook group of 26,186 mothers for some tasty alternatives to sandwiches for her husband’s lunches, she wasn’t expecting the backlash. “I would love to hear what other mums make their hubbies for lunch and snacks throughout the work day,” she posted on Tuesday. “We are getting over sandwiches.” You would think she’d asked for a hemlock recipe, judging by the torrent of scolding which erupted.

    Now, she did get many helpful responses. But women can be vicious, more so than men, in my (arguably limited) experience. And the responses are typical of modern feminists. Which is perhaps why men are declining to get married? (Not an issue for me; I am long past my “use by” date.)

    I have been looking at Paddocks photo after the room was breeched and there is something that doesn’t sit right with me. I have killed a lot of cows for meat and part of the killing process as other famers will know is to bleed the animal out – so the meat lasts longer. We do that by severing the big throat arteries and pumping the blood out.

    In that photo it looks like the fellow has had two bleeds, one older sunk into the carpet and one more recent where the clot looks very fresh and shiny.

    Is it possible the initial bleed was from inside his mouth (the face and mouth blood is all dry) and the second after the brain swelled and let go? Or some other reason? I apologise if I have offended anyone by raising this.

    It is what it is. Wait a few weeks, the evidence will be in.

    IMO the very ‘senselessness’ of it points to a classic copycat effort to make his pointless existence ‘ significant’, acting on the promise of media to make him famous if he does this.

  199. White fella supposed to take this rubbish seriously?

    Not only take it seriously, Zulu, but pay for it as well. In another story on Their ABC today, it transpires that the corroboree songs of the Kowanyama up around Cape York, are in danger of being lost. There’s only one old dude left who knows the words, and none of the young people are interested in learning them – mostly ‘cos none of them speak the local dialect – Kunjen.

    The obvious answer is – yes, you guessed it – for the hated, invading, taxpaying whitefella to cough up a grant for the indigenous kids to learn their own language so they learn the corroboree songs and so preserve their own culture. It is just one of 35 such grants so far this year, by the Department of Indigenous Affairs, through its Indigenous Languages and Arts program.

    Must have forgotten how to do in in 1899

    The exact number of casualties is not known as many deaths were not recorded. Estimates range between 307 and 410.[6]

    In September 1899, the Queensland Marine Department published a list of 247 known fatalities. The Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages has 283 registered deaths attributed to the cyclone, including 250 on pearling ships. One of the pearling fleet owners estimated another 30 people not officially registered as crew were killed and not reported to the Cooktown Registrar.[20]

    Around 100 Indigenous Australians were killed[21] but not recorded as Indigenous people were not counted as part of the population at the time. They had tried to help shipwrecked men, but the back surge caught them and swept them into the sea. Only eight Indigenous people were recorded amongst the casualties, all of whom died on shore.[20]

    The Queensland Historical Atlas reports the death toll as “307 pearl divers and sailors and an unreported number of Aborigines”

    stackja: I take Mum to the RSL/golf/ sports club for dinner at least once a week. When our food was delayed the waitress apologised, to which I replied “If we weren’t Aboriginal we wouldn’t have to wait.”

    A couple of minutes later the chef came out and apologised in person, which was too much for Mum.

    “We’re not Aborigines!” she said, loud enough to be heard and turn heads at adjoining tables.

    I offered to stand on one leg and gaze into the distance to prove our heritage, but the chef declined the demonstration.

    Mum barely spoke to me until she hit a minor jackpot on the pokies an hour or so later, cheering her considerably. Of course, as I identify as Indigenous, she should have shared it with me according to the custom of our Foot-a-scray-Whitten Nation, but she didn’t. White supremacy turns us against ourselves.

    They’ve got that covered, Nota.
    Apparently recordings aren’t “intimate” enough.

    No – I’m not making it up as go along.
    Although you’d be forgiven for thinking it.

    Last month Mr Lawrence (the corroboree singer) performed songs about flying foxes and bushfires at the local radio studio, to be broadcast to the community.

    Sitting next to Mr Lawrence was his friend, Viv Sinammon, who has spent the last 30 years collecting artefacts and documenting culture in Kowanyama.

    Mr Sinammon is also recording Mr Lawrence’s songs for his collection, however he described that as a last resort.

    “It has to be a little bit more intimate than just listening to it on the radio,” Mr Sinammon said.

    When Lenin invaded Poland
    Christopher Silvester reviews Warsaw 1920: Lenin’s Failed Conquest of Europe by Adam Zamoyski
    The Soviet invasion of Poland in the summer of 1920 as a prelude to its proposed conquest of Europe, in particular Germany, is so little known and discussed by historians that Adam Zamoyski refuses to call it the Polish-Soviet War. Only one of the works in English listed among his sources uses this name in its title.
    Coming so soon after the First World War, it has been overlooked by everyone except the Poles and, given the upheaval that would befall them 20 years later and the pall that descended on them thereafter, Zamoyski admits that “the events of 1920 seem not only irrelevant, but quaint”.

    As a boy, during the so-called “mission days”, Mr Gurruwiwi asked his grandmothers how they predicted cyclones. “No radar, not satellite, no tracking,” he said. “They just feel the land itself and they straight away know.”

    Spare me f*cking days! “They just feel the land itself and they straight away know.” This is stone age mysticism. Is there any evidence offered to show that any of this actually worked? Of course not! This is “traditional knowledge”, so whether or not it is complete bs is irrelevant.

    Yes, that must be how an entire community managed to avoid being wiped out by STC Mahina a century and half ago in Bathurst Bay.

    Oh, wait, all 100 were killed?

    Mind, you originally racist whitey didn’t count them, being more focussed on the asians and whiteys wiped out on a pearling fleet.

    The two authors of California Governor Brown’s new edict allowing men to knowingly infect blood supplies and other men with HIV are State Senator Scott Wiener and Assemblyman Todd Gloria.

    Both gay Democrats.

    Wiener doesn’t like condoms.

    San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener on Wednesday revealed that he has been taking the HIV-prevention medication Truvada.

    “I recently decided to be public about my use of PrEP in order to raise awareness about this relatively new tool for preventing HIV,” Wiener wrote in The Huffington Post. “It’s important to encourage people at risk for HIV to talk to their medical providers about all the tools and methods available for preventing infection, including PrEP, and to choose the methods that are best for them.”

    […]

    Wiener, along with David Campos, is one of two openly gay members of the Board of Supervisors. On Tuesday, Campos proposed that The City provide Truvada free of charge to all San Franciscans who request it, regardless of their respective incomes.

    A hearing at City Hall today is expected to address Campos’ proposal.

    Meanwhile, the medication remains controversial, mainly due to its association with sex without condoms.

    Wiener told The New York Times that he hopes to change that stigma, starting with his revealtion about using the medication.

    “I definitely struggled with the decision about whether to be public about this because people will make a lot of assumptions and speculate,” Wiener told The Times. “But in the end I thought it was very important to be public given the district I represent and the community I represent precisely because we need to remove the stigma from PrEP.”

    Wiener is HIV negative. He represents the Castro district, San Francisco’s famous gay neighborhood where the HIV/AIDS epidemic was particularly devastating in the 1980s.

    It’s estimated that one in four gay men living in San Francisco today have HIV.

    The Magnificat
    My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
    my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
    for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
    From this day all generations will call me blessed:
    the Almighty has done great things for me,
    and holy is his Name.

    He has mercy on those who fear him
    in every generation.
    He has shown the strength of his arm,
    he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

    He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
    and has lifted up the lowly.
    He has filled the hungry with good things,
    and the rich he has sent away empty.

    Yes, if I could change one thing, it would be the preferential system. It may have served in the past (I’m not saying it did; I don’t know), but it does not now. It is gamed to the max in the lower house. I don’t want a proportional system, because that seems to produce even worse outcomes. I would go for a system where you assigned your preferences as far as you wanted.

    I thought we tried it for a while about 20 years ago but it could have been just the state elections.
