    Anyone participating in the Rio Tinto buyback?

    Wondering whether to get involved or not.

    Depends on your tax position.
    These things are normally pitched at a discount to market price.
    The attraction is that a large chunk of the buyback price is usually a fully franked dividend.
    If your tax rate is, say, zero or maybe 15% it might be worth it (ie the tax credits from dividend imputation generate a net gain). If your marginal tax rate is 30% or above 40% the numbers usually don’t stack up.
    It depends how the shares are owned (individual, trust, super fund) and what the marginal tax of the owner is.
    This is not financial advice, etc etc etc

    It is the new way to make money.

    Didn’t Yossarian’s father in Catch-22 get paid by the government not to grow alfalfa, so he bought all the fields he could and made a fortune not growing alfalfa on them.

    Of course, it didn’t occur to Heller to have the government legislating for the surplus of alfalfa at the same time.

    Why are we being assailed with the tribulations of a spat between the Catalonians and the federal Spaniards? This is as relevant as the tedious Basque quest for independence.
    All these sub species of Europe are tainted with the regressive genes of the Arab incursions centuries ago. The Spaniards, the Southern Italians, the Portuguese , Greeks and the Balkans all create perpetual problems for the Northern Europeans.
    They should never have been included in the European Union. Their customs, law and societal mores are antithetical to Northern Europeans.
    Why are we concerning ourselves with this utterly irrelevant problem. Let them sort it out amongst themselves. The outcome is not germane to the prosperity or progress of the core of Europe. They are irrelevant. Consider the actions of that other irrelevance to Europe ….the Turks.

    Didn’t Yossarrian lease virtual wharehouses to the government so the State could potentially store the non-existant alfalfa surplus?.

    41st Battalion A.I.F

    Gordon, Bernard Sidney (1891–1963)
    In July 1918 the 41st Battalion, as part of the 11th Infantry Brigade, was involved in an attack on Hamel, and Gordon was awarded the Military Medal for gallant conduct. He was later awarded the Victoria Cross, for ‘most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty on 26th-27th August, 1918, east of Bray’. In this action, the citation stated, Gordon displayed ‘a wonderful example of fearless initiative’. He led his section through heavy shell-fire to its objective, which he consolidated. ‘Single-handed he attacked an enemy machine-gun which was enfilading the company on his right, killed the man on the gun and captured the post, which contained one officer and ten men. He then cleaned up a trench, capturing twenty-nine prisoners and two machine-guns … Practically unaided, he captured, in the course of these operations, two officers and sixty-one other ranks, together with six machine-guns’.

    In Queensland an organisation, that has frequently shown disregard for the law, threatens to rape children and the Premier says they should be left to their own devices.

    Still, it’s a 100k too many.

    It is progress.

    Towards the rationing of everything, which is more than the plebs deserve.

    Again, the Left project their flaws. They mischaracterise capitalism to mean having more than other people, where in reality it is they who cannot enjoy having anything without the certainty that others are doing without.

    Ahahahahaha Drudge is reporting that Weinstein is jetting off to Europe to go into rehab for sex addiction. The last redoubt of the sleaze. He doesn’t have a sex addiction. He just figured that since he was a powerful player in a business that many people will do all sorts of things to get a foot in the door, he would use that leverage to get young actresses to gratify him sexually. This is not an addiction. Abusing the power of one’s position for lustful purposes does not signify an addiction. He is not sick. He’s just a sleazy old man.

    Home Depot Panics Over Millennials; Forced To Host Tutorials On Using Tape Measures, Hammering Nails

    While avocado resellers like Whole Foods only have to worry about creating a catchy advertising campaign to attract millennials, Home Depot is in full-on panic mode after realizing that an entire generation of Americans have absolutely no clue how to use their products. As the Wall Street Journal points out, the company has been forced to spend millions to create video tutorials and host in-store classes on how to do everything from using a tape measure to mopping a floor and hammering a nail.

    Meanwhile, Scotts Miracle-Gro has been forced to start training classes to remind frustrated millennials, who can’t seem to keep their flowers alive, that plants need sunlight to grow (apparently not a single millennial ever took biology in grade school). Commenting on the tutorials, a defeated VP of Corporate Affairs, Jim King, admitted “these are simple things we wouldn’t have really thought to do or needed to do 15 to 20 years ago”

    Unfortunately, at least for the Home Depots of the world, millennials now represent the largest demographic in America with 4.75 million 26 year olds roaming the streets of New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles without a clue as to how to use a tape measure.

    On the other hand if you hit yourself with that hammer just right you’ll get a green thumb!

    May over in the UK is on the verge of being so crap at her job she will hand over power to Sqaundermonkies that make Rudd look like Howard.

    How bad??
    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/oct/11/uk-universal-basic-services-jonathan-portes

    Free housing, food, transport and access to the internet should be given to British citizens in a massive expansion of the welfare state, according to a report warning the rapid advance of technology will lead to job losses.
    Former senior government official Jonathan Portes and academics from University College London make the call for a raft of new “universal basic services” using the same principles as the NHS. They estimate it would cost about £42bn, which could be funded by changes to the tax system.
    The recommendations include doubling Britain’s existing social housing stock with funding to build 1.5m new homes, which would be offered for free to those in most need. A food service would provide one third of meals for 2.2m households deemed to experience food insecurity each year, while free bus passes would be made available to everyone, rather than just the over-60s.

    The proposals also include access to basic phone services, the internet, and the cost of the BBC licence fee being paid for by the state.
    John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, said the recommendations would “help inform Labour’s thinking”.
    “This report offers bold new thinking on how we can overcome those challenges and create an economy that is radically fairer and offers opportunities for all,” he added.

    ..
    Voters may balk at the higher taxes required, with the report earmarking a massive reduction in the personal tax allowance from the current rate of £11,500 to as little as £4,300 to pay for the changes.

    So the stupid fucking Tories are going to fight back by trying to outbid the economic illiterates, a project which it is impossible to win.
    The Conservatives have however pledged to increase government spending on housing and university tuition fees, as they attempt to counter growing support for Jeremy Corybn’s Labour party.


    “The role of the state is to ensure an equitable distribution of not just money, but opportunity to participate and contribute to society. For that to be meaningful, there are likely to be certain services everyone should be able to access.”

    Communist slime never go away do they?

    Juanita Broaddrick: Weinstein, Bill Clinton ‘Cut From The Same Cloth’ (yesterday)

    It comes out in the end M0nty. Let’s have a look at the wiki shall we?

    Rumors circulated about Broaddrick’s allegations for many years, but she refused to speak to the media.

    Despite Broaddrick’s denial in her affidavit, Jones’ lawyers included Yoakum’s letter and Broaddrick’s name in a 1998 filing.[13] The letter suggested that the Clintons had bought Broaddrick’s silence, describing a phone call where Broaddrick’s husband asked Yoakum to say the incident never happened and said that he intended to ask Clinton “for a couple of big favors.”[15]

    On the other hand the Democrats, not least Mr Mueller and his football team of Dem lawyers, have been looking under rocks for over a year now for dirt on Trump. They’re so desperate that anything they could dig out would have been front page news for weeks. They have found so little of substance that the pussy grab statement is it, and they had to invent “Wussians”. And those both have been so overused they’re being ignored by voters.

    It’s not safe.

  129. Oh come on

    Stimps, I know the concept of sex addiction is controversial but I cannot see why sex could not be addictive. However, I suspect it is a great deal rarer than cases involving slimeballs like Weinstein and Anthony Wiener would have us believe. Having a high sex drive does not make you a sex addict. Having a sexual history that includes sex with a great many people does not make you a sex addict. Being excessively undiscriminating when selecting sexual partners does not make you a sex addict. Engaging in risky behaviour to obtain sex does not make you a sex addict. Abusing a position of authority to obtain sex does not make you a sex addict. Committing crimes to obtain sex does not make you a sex addict.

    But some mix of the above symptoms could certainly indicate a pathological sex addiction, sure. Why not? If people can get addicted to working out, why not sex? However, I suspect the symptoms of sex addiction would be a lot more extreme and shocking than the behaviour of serial sleazeballs like Weinstein; the symptoms being the kinds of things a sex addict would be willing to do to get their fix.

    how does a motivated, cashed-up kiddie embark on the journey to prosperity?

    Enterprising neighbour kid, same age, tried the lemonade stand on the road verge, then got chooks and generated eggs, then came knocking on my door wanting to sell me a pat of the chook for a dollar or a selfie with her for $2. The chook’s name was Moondyne Joe because she was such a good escaper.

    My suggestion is garage sales. Go around looking for cheap and sellable stuff that is not too big, and on a theme like eg ‘dolls and girl toys smaller than a breadbox’ then hold garage sales. WIth the theme and advertising you will pull for suburbs around. Stuff is often free to cute children who are enterprising. If it can be managed as an ongoing thing you dont take that hit when you recognise stock on hand after the sale closes, as worthless.

  133. Oh come on

    Furniture restoration is stupid amounts of work unless they are selling for hundreds or thousands, and your markups reflect that kind of value shift. And little touch-ups are a good idea, but refinishing is what I mean is a big deal. Just buying good stuff to ‘flip it’ is better.

    If it is true that a Richmond premiership player passed on to friends and teammates personal photographs of a semi-naked woman, then the Tigers cannot defend him. And the AFL, if required, must overrule the club and suspend him.

    As damaging as this story could become for the club and as uncomfortable as it is for the image-conscious AFL, then just imagine how the young woman in question must feel. If what she has alleged took place – and certainly anyone who wants to has seen the photograph – then she has been violated and humiliated.

    If a male had been photographed with his consent, naked, with a premiership medallion, any complaints as to the photos’ morality would be met with comments that he was a drunken Dick head who deserved what he got.

    Sorry Delta, but you are starting from the wrong end of the stick.

    Very few people ever succeed financially doing something they don’t enjoy.
    Start by listing all the things she currently enjoys doing – things she already has an interest in.
    Then look at ways they could be utilised in turning a profit.

    Kid across the road (now 15) is mad keen about breeding birds (finches, budgies, canaries etc).
    Was just a hobby three years ago when they moved in.
    It is now a thriving business – he sells via Gumtree, Facebook, and a couple of local retail outlets.
    This year he branched out into making nesting boxes, feeders etc.
    There have been many other benefits apart from financial.

    Can you point to 6-7 hush money legal agreements signed by Trump?
    By definition they would be kept quiet, LL

    Oh, so many, many Thwacks in this one.

    Just like all your Wussia!Wussia!Wussia! bollocks has also proven to be ” kept quiet”, eh?

    Introduce the young lady to learning the difference between what you want, and what you need

    I don’t think that matters so much. It’s more important that she realises that whether they are wants or needs, she’ll be the one paying for them.

    A friend’s kid used to rent out his books and movie/ music cds, even his crutches. Also charged to stand in line for others at tuckshop. Would ask for money for his birthday, or books and movies that he knew would be popular on the rental market.

    I’m not very well informed at the best of times and especially today. I had to cancel all patients today because Doc was ill. I’ve never had to do before in 15 years. He’s tough. I’ve held the bucket while he gives a live radio interview. Anyway…What was Bolt on about just now; using the conditional mood “should”, instead of the future tense “will”. He was plugging his column in the papers tomorrow, said his column “should” be in News Ltd papers and for readers to complain if it wasn’t. Perhaps I’m reading too much into it.

    Paltrow and Jolie were hardly friendless in Hollywood.

    Life imitates art.

    They play strong women in movies, and in life they imitate playing strong women.

    If I had a keen interest in rooting Hollywood starlets and spoofing into pot plants, how could I profit from these interests MV?

    She’s a sweet little blue-eyed blonde with huge ambitions

    Similar to “vast tracts of land” H/T Monty Pythons.

    Sorry, only one Python. I was going to put possessive “s” for Holy Grail and muffed it. Soz

    On fire tonight Arky! Doc’s cacking himself! Oh- he’s sick. I forgot.

    Lena Dunham is the latest to take legal action against Harvey.

    Claim for sexual abuse.

    Apparently, he said “Fuck off, you fat slag, even I wouldn’t touch you”.

    By becoming a movie producer, Arky.
    Obviously.

    Thanks, everyone, for the helpful (and not so helpful) suggestions.

    She’s a sweet little blue-eyed blonde with huge ambitions. I’m rearranging my long-term retirement plans to capitalise on her impending financial success.

    Delta, your granddaughter has been blessed by her creator and, from what you’ve said, she doesn’t take it for granted. Natural good looks are a head-start that still haven’t been outlawed by our Marxist ruling class and she sounds very bright, as well as having chosen her parents wisely. I’d simply say to her: go for it — you can do anything, but always do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    There was a Chinese guy in our platoon in recruit training.
    Our first day in the field with the ration packs he started trading.
    He would find someone who hated beef and trade two beefs for one pork, then find someone who loved beef and trade them half their rat pack for two beefs.
    After an hour or so, we realised this prick had most of our food.
    Which he then tried to sell back to us for real money.

    Speaking of socialism rearing its ugly head a la the UK, a mate has just returned from PNG, also doing military history research as I was two months ago. He writes:

    My guide in Rabaul, a lucky local who had a whitey education and was making good bucks out of being a guide, told me the country is so poor now half the kids never go to school. Unemployment, if western measures are used (ie working in the family veggie patch does not count), is 75 percent among the young. Imagine how much better off they’d be if we still ruled them. Nationalism is the stupid view that everyone should rule themselves. PNG got self-rule in 75 and we see the result. The sensible view is that all anyone wants is good government, even if administered by foreigners. Me – I want the foreigner Donald Trump to rule me.

    The Solomons was pretty much the same deal. They got their indep in 78, and they are also stuffed up. All you need to do is imagine what it would be like if we had given indep to Arnhem Land in the 70s. What would they have done with it?

    Any who is to blame? – why the UN for course. In late 60s they began to put pressure on Aust re PNG and the UK re Solomons to grant independence, and we both obliged. You probably thought the UN only became a bunch of tossers in the last 20-30 years.

    I’m not buying this weenystein pot plant drenching; too many variables, too many unknowns: what sort of pot plant was it; how far was weeny standing from it; what sort of woman watches a fat ugly bastard jerking off in a corridor?

    But it has got the equally mysterious Vegas shooting off the front pages.

  224. nobody gives a shit what your passions are.

    Fortunately, folks like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates never learned this valuable lesson.

    Sort of

    Zoe Daniel. Weinstein’s behaviour was a “known secret” in Hollywood. Just as well Trump didn’t say that, Zoe would be beside herself with scorn.

    Gough Whitlam was a strong advocate for decolonisation. Accordingly, he promoted self-government and eventually, full independence for Papua New Guinea.

    Interesting take on Brexit.

    The Tory Taboo
    The great lie by Leavers before the referendum was that there would be no losers as a result of Brexit.

    But here’s a bigger twist to the story: There will be no winners, either.

    No one will gain anything from Brexit except for London-based politicians, bureaucrats, book-writing economists, and media people who know an endless story when they see one; but I doubt if the 52 percent were hoping to increase the power of this coterie when they voted yes.

    If you don’t believe me about this project of universal losership, ask a Leaver to name someone—not something—who is going to have more rights or happiness after Brexit than before it. They always say it is for the benefit of “the U.K./us/everyone.”

    The truth is, no one will gain any rights or opportunities through Brexit; but at least 4 million people will lose out (E.U. citizens in Britain and British citizens in the E.U.).

    Sadly, no. I encourage him but to no avail. I read the corkers out to him, ’cause e’s poorly like.
