    Remember this, film ‘industry’ bitches?

    The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

  2. Roger

    The IMF has downgraded the Australian growth outlook from 3% to 2.2%. Imagine how low it would be without the GDP boost derived from the Turnbull government paying households not to use electricity!

    Imagine how it would look without the artificial stimulus of 210 000 migrants every year!

  3. Snoopy

    Struth, the film industry is an industry just as renewables electricity generation is an industry. Both are government subsidy magnets.

  4. Chris;

    What I learned when it was too late was that when in the company of a nice young lady it is a good idea to make some sort of pass no matter how clumsy. The very worst insult you can make is not to even try.

    What I learned too late could fill a book.
    But the worst was not knowing the significance of armboob.
    Still furious…

  5. We are way worse than the states.
    Way more corrupt.
    Way more socialist.

    Totally agree Struth. It’s why I’m currently working on an escape plan. The U.S still has a chance, we have none. The utter cowardice and lack of fight on the right is why we are heading for a very preventable catastrophe.

    Conservatives have been found wanting but the Fagertarians are the most contemptible trash of all. The biggest bunch of useless losers since the Judean People’s Front crack suicide squad. Every single one of them to a woman (cos there are no men amongst them that’s for sure) is voting for SSM Cultural Marxism.

    Can anyone name one single victory the right has had in the past 10 years? Just one? Now think of what the left has done. All we do is sit in echo chambers, listen to talks and write articles that are basically documenting the end of Western society or screeching “…..errrrrr look at what the left are doing!” Or best of all, the greatest weapon the right currently has – the email harvesting online petition!

    Newsflash people – the left don’t give a shit about anyone exposing their hypocrisy or lies or corruption. They have no morals or ethics. They only care about power and money, namely YOUR money.

    It’s so depressing about how easily we’ve given up and not even attempted to put a fight. We deserve everything coming for us.

    Hubby comes to visit the next day & starts demanding, then taking his conjugal rights.

    Yep, happened to a friend of ours. She was in a two-bed room; Italian lady in the bed next to her. Italian husband did the same thing; tried to get in bed with his wife and get it on. The nurses were less than sympathetic (or gentle) to his demands.

  7. Fergus

    Hiding the bad things that happened, just because we don’t want to acknowledge them, just allows the truth evaders on the other side to carry on with their fantasies too. Shit things happened in the past, and still.
    Islanders were badly mistreated and abused and Islanders ate plenty of ship wrecked people, and their own. People cry over the massacres of the past, and then look at you blankly when you ask “So what did you do to stop the recent slaughters in Africa/Middle East/Myanmar? ”
    Shit happened and no society is innocent. In the west, we acknowledged that but then it grew to coverups over the evil that even victims can perpetrate.

    Are leftist women in the US so outraged about sexual abuse committed by the rich and powerful that they will finally hold Bill Clinton to account?

  12. Gab

    Winston, what is this “armboob” of which you speak?

  13. Snoopy

    ‘Filmmaker’ Sophie Mathisen’s solution to alleged sexual assault in the Australian film industry is to have gender balance prescribed. Distilled, this simply means she sees the Weinstein scandal as an opportunity to hoover a greater proportion of government funding because vagina.

    Tommy Robinson: My Columbia U. Talk, What Happened & What’s Next
    Rebel Media
    Oct 11, 2017
    (LANGUAGE WARNING) Tommy Robinson of TheRebel.media tried to give a talk at Columbia University in New York (via Skype) and the left shut it down. So he has some plans…

  15. Senile Old Guy

    This is typical.

    Phil Miller is a lifelong resident of Anthepe town camp on the outskirts of Alice Springs, but the lights don’t work and the windows are boarded up. His home is not quite what he had hoped for. “This light doesn’t work… this one is always blinking… when we try and go to the toilet it’s too dark,” Mr Miller said. All the windows in this public housing property are boarded up; Mr Miller has been asking for years for them to be repaired, without any luck. “The Government better do something to renovate our houses… so we can live like a family, you know?” he said.

    My roof needs fixing. I have to organise that and pay for it. And the mortgage, electricity, rates, etc. But certain people don’t take care of their property and expect others to fix it and pay for it.

    Gab, armboob is when a young lady expresses interest in the possibility of exploring a relationship with a young(ish) man by standing close to his side and slightly to the rear with her breast pressing into the back of his upper arm.

    Can happen in the most unexpected circumstances.

    Probably best ignored.

    Here is Judge Judy at the Oxford Union, very entertaining. It’s about an hour.

    She does, sadly, fall into the “hate speech” trap. Considering that she is in the New York Jooish world, it’s not surprising. The rest of her schtick is solidly conservative.

    It’s fascinating to watch how this tiny woman with a huge personality and heaps of brains, and a sense of humour, cows the privileged kiddies. It’s a treat!

    Democratic Mega-Donor Demands Democrats Pledge to Impeach Trump

    Tom Steyer, Democratic mega-donor and environmentalist, has demanded Democratic lawmakers and candidates pledge to to push for the impeachment of President Donald Trump if they take control of Congress next year.

    Well at least Steyer is open about the fact that he has bought and paid for these muppets, and expects them to dance to his tune on command.

    As opposed to the mysteriously inexplicable wealth – across both sides of the aisle – of dedicated ( cough ) servants of the people like Harry Reid, Maxine Waters and Bob Corker.

  22. Geriatric Mayfly

    A review of a book in The Spectator catches my attention. The subject being the Warner Brothers and their impact on Hollywood. It disconcerts me to a degree to read the following:

    Harry, the eldest, fancied himself the moral conscience of the family. Eleven years senior to Jack, he cleaved to the old morality of the shtetl. He never forgave the baby of the famiy for having gone native – for getting married more than once, and for the afternoon ritual on the office sofa with the latest chorus-line hopeful.

  23. A lot of South Pacific Islanders came to work in the canfields for quite low pay and lousy conditions, Dave.

    What a pity we didn’t have minimum wage laws to protect them.
    (Dives behind sofa).

  24. I opined that on the face of the evidence Paddock may well have acted alone and until proven otherwise we should wait and see. A grave sin, indeed.

    All the back of house access offered to all high rollers information does is support the available evidence that Paddock acted alone.

    I think this is a little bit of an exaggeration. Corruption in the states is all encompassing, entrenched in every level of government and the bureaucracy. Look at the IRS Tea Party example – apart from the unions we look like rank amateurs.

    Sorry, but I disagree.

    In the States, the corruptocrats may have broken cover, but Australia is equally as corrupt.

    As people like various foreign entrepreneurs have allegedly remarked – they know Australia is corrupt. It is just the mechanisms are not as overt as they are used to dealing with in other places.

    The IRS. Okay – political activists off the reservation.

    I see you and raise you and raise you Underbelly: ATO. How deep is the rot that the idiot Cranston crime family revealed by dancing in front of the AFP waving mountains of cash, drugs and illegal firearms ? when you have lost the Canberra Times…. !

    Our ridiculous cost of living is no longer a function of tyranny of distance and concentration of ownership.

    The electricity grid is being shut down to rapidly enrich the industry super funds ( union warlords ) and crony corporates.

    The aboriginal industry ?

    $50 billion + fantasy submarines ( anyone else wondering why Xenaphon is hotfooting it back to Adelaide where he can try to be a spoiler on anything until he is ‘convinced’ ? ). On and on and on.

    Right now the corrupt seem, for whatever reason, to have broken in to an open sprint to not just drain Australia like parasites, but to clean out the wealth ASAP.

    And then presumably head for more salubrious climes once they have loaded the last pallet of cash.

    I believe Australia is a massively corrupt place, the more so because the corrupt manage to keep a lid on it so well. Next time you look at your mortgage payment, tax bill, retail purchases or the inflated cost of eating out, think about Australian costs of living compared to corrupt places elsewhere.

    Especially the details ignored by those liars addicted to trying to nail David Icke-isms to others.

    NDIS hiring generates job growth

    The surge in employment this year owes more to the ramp up of the National Disability Insurance Scheme than to any broad recovery in the health of the economy.

    An analysis by economists and JPMorgan shows that virtually all the rise in employment growth this year is accounted for by women in the healthcare sector, with the NDIS by far the largest employer.

    NDIS has crossed the event horizon. It is now too big a feature in the Australian economy for anyone to control and will automatically demand, and receive, whatever public resources it requires.

    I only ask because the torso that is displayed appears to be younger than one would expect from a “woman”.
    By that I mean that gravity hasn’t done any work, there is no real muscle definition, the fat layer appears to be what we used to call puppy fat, and the very fine hair appears to be from a quite young woman.
    Put it this way – if that person entered my photo shop, I’d want to see a birth certificate before I took any photos.
    And this begs the question – how old is the person?

    NSW ELECTION
    Katrina Hodgkinson tours Europe as Nats face by-election fights
    Katrina Hodgkinson in Switzerland while her former Nationals colleagues fight to keep her old seat.

    Andrew Clennell
    The Australian
    12:00AM October 12, 2017

    Former NSW Nationals minister Katrina Hodgkinson is on holiday in Europe with family as the NSW government faces its ­moment of truth this weekend in two rural by-elections, one of which she caused.

    On Instagram in the dying days of the Cootamundra and Murray campaigns, Ms Hodgkinson has posted photos of her and family in rural France and Switzerland, raising the ire of some ­Nationals colleagues.

    Overnight on Tuesday, Ms Hodgkinson posted a photo in front of Roman columns in Nyon, Switzerland, saying: “Ionian ­Corinthian or Donian #Nyon”.

    Pictures in France contained such captions as: “Climbing the Eiffel Tower is officially off the bucket list!; “An amazing avenue of chestnut trees in Semur-­En-Anxois” and “The view from the house is stunning #Burgundy #France.”

    Deputy Premier John Barilaro is engaged in the political fight of his life against Shooters, Fishers and Farmers candidates in Murray and Cootamundra, Ms Hodgkinson’s old seat.

    Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s government need only lose seven seats in 2019 to lose its majority, meaning the weekend’s by-elections shape as critical.

    Nationals’ polling is believed to show the party marginally in front in the seat of Murray (where it has a 22 per cent margin) and seven to nine points ahead in Ms Hodgkinson’s old seat of Cootamundra (margin 20).

    Yesterday Mr Barilaro defended Ms Hodgkinson’s holiday.

    “I understand the trip had been booked for some time, and that Katrina, who spent 18 years in parliament and sacrificed a lot of time with her family, is visiting her teenage daughter studying overseas,” Mr Barilaro said. “Katrina resigned over four weeks ago and we wish her all the best.”

    Other Nationals MPs were not so kind, indicating Ms Hodgkinson should have waited until her term was over before departing on her European holiday.

    From the Oz. “Pull up the ladder Jack, for I am all right?”

    They are but it can all turn around so quickly. Look how the gormless plebs here ruined us with one stupid decision in 2007 and with Blair in the UK and the Obumbaclot. The only reason Australia isn’t the laughing stock of the Western world is because Justin Castrodeau has ensured the Canucks have won that honour, for now.

    You can destroy in a couple of years what took decades to build and since the left only ever destroy they are experts at it now. We not only need people and a party that will kick the shit out of the left but also ensure they never have another chance to do what they have done again. But it’s all wishful thinking.

    Excellent point.

    The casting couch predates the movies. This particular creep is just one of many, in a long line. His fortunes are in decline, and someone decided to dob him in. The airbrains who inhabit Hollywood don’t seem to have realised that they have picked the scab off a gaping wound. There they were, emoting at awards ceremonies about sexism, having just escaped being groped by Harvey in the corridor.

    Frankly, I don’t care.

    Right now the corrupt seem, for whatever reason, to have broken in to an open sprint to not just drain Australia like parasites, but to clean out the wealth ASAP.

    I said upon the election of Trump, when Australians were celebrating “so much winning” that we here, have won nothing.

    As a socialist shithole, we have lost because of Trump’s election.

    The global socialists have panicked that this all could happen to Australia and have ramped ut their attack ten fold.

    Trump has driven them completely insane with hate and fear (even more than usual)
    That’s why they have TDS so bad here in Australia.
    The mere sniff of a rising of the right has them going harder than ever.
    The very first thing Malcom spoke about upon the election of Trump was our continuing commitment to the U.N.
    No matter what is happening elsewhere he will not be moved on his utter subservience to the global socialist U.N.
    That is all that concerns him.
    Trump accelerated Australia’s down fall.

  51. Des Deskperson

    ‘This is only correct in selected, mostly unionised areas of Australia’s economy, like the wharves.’

    Well, indeed, Struth, but I think these ‘selected, mostly unionised area of the Australian economy’ extended far beyond just the wharfiess and the BLF.

    The NDIS will make the NBN look like a rounding error. A Fabian masterstroke.

  54. If anyone doesn’t think this country is horribly corrupt they probably also believe the $50 billion NBN, $50 billion underwater NBN, $10 billion desal plants, $4 billion and 4 years to build a few kms of tram tracks, RET, NDIS, BER, Pink Batts etc. etc. are all fabulous value for money and were the roooight thing to do to power forward!

    To put things in perspective the entire Apollo program (that’s all rockets, research, all moon landings etc.) cost $125 billion in today’s money.

    For that sum we got an unfinished, abysmal NBN, subs that will never work and mothballed desal plants.

    Even if they all worked out perfectly you would still have to ask; Where did all the money go?

    The only reason Australia isn’t the laughing stock of the Western world is because Justin Castrodeau has ensured the Canucks have won that honour, for now.

    We are irrelevant, and that’s why the whole world isn’t laughing.
    But those that take notice are scratching their heads in disbelief.

    New Zealand, most likely, will follow Australia down the shit tube, but I don’t think it will get too bad before I am pushing up daisies.

    I base that on lots of observations but one sector often overlooked is international tourism and it’s roll in keeping a private sector healthy, and socialism at bay, once it takes a hold, and is big enough.
    New Zealand has really just been noticed by the rest of the world and it’s beauty means they will be unable to regulate and socialize too much, as it booms.

    When Australia started getting a lot of internationals in the nineties, the socialists worked very quick to close it down, case example, Ayers Rock.

    The way government worked here throughout the entire country regards tourist destinations was exactly how they worked at the rock.
    Regulated it, (stopped climbing, didn’t allow people to stop on the roads in the park, or even walk on the sand, and much much more) gave it to corrupt organisations and made it too expensive to visit.

    Nowadays the Rock is an expensive irrelevance to the world, with a prison like barbed wire fence at the base of the climb, and a few domestic grey nomads visit, who camp away from Yulara.

    This style of regulating to death has not been followed in NZ.
    They have maximum liability limits on claims, and therefore still operate bungi jumping etc.
    I could talk about many other things they have not followed us in, like transport regulations and levels of taxation, lack of stamp duty, capital gains etc, and even to the fact that the U.N. and greenies can’t complain about their electrical generation.
    Their media is as left wing as ours, utterly pathetic.
    But all up, doing nothing here is not an option, and stating that NZ can easily go bad, is stating the obvious about anywhere.
    And I love the place.

    Can anyone name one single victory the right has had in the past 10 years? Just one? Now think of what the left has done. All we do is sit in echo chambers, listen to talks and write articles that are basically documenting the end of Western society or screeching “…..errrrrr look at what the left are doing!” Or best of all, the greatest weapon the right currently has – the email harvesting online petition!

    Again, as I have said many times, if you are not controlling the flow of information to the children, brainwashing them and controlling the future,
    your side will fail.
    If you are certain in your convictions then it is the only moral thing to do, and they will thank you for it later.
    Alleged Conservatives have almost entirely ceded the influential areas of education, Government, Universities, and media to the opposition.
    What did anyone think was going to happen this occurred?
    Now we have the frankly ridiculous situation where children are becoming Conservative through their exposure to new media like YouTube, not through their parents or the traditional institutions of education.
    This is embarrassing for alleged Conservatives on many levels, yet we should be very thankful it is occurring.
    There is always hope.

    And a lot of other white people working like dogs in many other areas to keep things going.

    I just don’t see the generalisation that the whites were lazy as anything but racist bullshit.
    Because the proof is there, due to Australia’s wealth, they were not.
    Some of course were, but our nations wealth, like all wealth, was built on the toil and effort of generations of white people working their butts off in many unprotected areas of the private sector.
    The wealth that could have been realised was not, due to the factors you mention, but that was not all of white Australia, by a long shot.

    INDIGENOUS
    PM urged to revive indigenous constitutional recognition agenda
    Aboriginal leader Michael Mansell.
    Picture: Justin Brierty

    The Australian

    Stephen Fitzpatrick
    Indigenous Affairs Editor
    Sydney
    @svfitzpatrick

    Malcolm Turnbull has been urged to quickly revive the flagging indigenous constitutional recognition agenda after allowing the marriage equality opinion poll to push it aside.

    Three months after the Referendum Council delivered its final report recommending an indigenous advisory body to parliament and backing calls for a “Makarrata commission” overseeing treaty-making and truth-telling, Tasmanian Aboriginal lawyer Michael Mansell said it was worrying the Prime Minister had gone silent on the issue.

    “We know he’s got his issues in his own party, he doesn’t have much room to move, but we’ve got to engage him and the majority of the party and say you’ve got nothing to fear from this, you can come out of it looking good,” Mr Mansell said.

    “I didn’t agree our issues should’ve been shoved aside while this same sex marriage debate was going on – governments are supposed to be able to deal with multiple issues. But we’ve got to be able to jump straight in when this is dealt with and address this properly.”

    Mr Mansell, who will deliver a lecture in Sydney tonight on what form the treaty-making aspects outlined in the recent Uluru Statement from the Heart could take, said the six-month series of indigenous dialogues that led up to the Uluru constitutional convention in May provided a sound model.

    In particular, he said, the role played by the major state and territory Aboriginal land councils in convening the dialogues could translate into how a national treaty-making body was formed, with delegates nominated from the councils’ various memberships.

    “Then, a treaty commission would actually give the doubters an opportunity to come in and present their case, everyone would have a chance to rework their version of a treaty that is workable,” he said.

    Mr Mansell said it would be critical to convince Australians the proposed treaty body was not seeking to impose an “Aboriginal tax”, but it would nonetheless need to further formalise compensation paid for historical dispossessions. This would include a financial calculation based on GDP “but that doesn’t have to be a lump sum, it’s a financial base that could be delivered in a whole range of different ways”, he said.

    From the Oz. How much more are Australians supposed to pay in compensation, and who who is defined as “Aboriginal?” Gibbit money whiteman…

    Yes Winston.

    The security company have video of it which is why it was reported in the Courier mail.

    It speaks volumes that the Queensland police haven’t rushed up there with a task force as they saw the video evidence like everyone else and thus don’t need a complaint to be made. We have just had almost 2 years of ‘not now, not ever’ in Queensland in regards to any sought of violence against women. But here is a union thug caught on camera and the Queensland government, Premier and police are doing nothing about it.

    BTW if you tick off the unions in Qld don’t be surprised to find a government regulatory agency popping around to see what type of offences and irregularities you might have committed in your business.

    tsk tsk tsk Cats; in some ways I’m glad I was a Marxist activist in my younger days… it taught me the playbook for owning lefties.

    So, latest story (take note):

    Some dude on Twitter has been going off about Pell and what a peddo he is etc.. the usual vile stuff. Half an hour of googling, searching LinkedIN and social media I find out he’s a teacher in Newcastle. I even find his school. Write up an email to Dept of Education NSW, Minister for Education and the school to ask about social media use by public servants (particularly in relation to suppression orders and sub judice) and, voila! The Minister’s office respond immediately that they are looking into it. I got the same response and a shut down on a Director of a publicly funded writers guild previously; numerous other examples. The playbook works – use it!

    So, I might be a righty, but I fight like a lefty 😛

    Again, as I have said many times, if you are not controlling the flow of information to the children, brainwashing them and controlling the future,
    your side will fail.

    True, Stimpy, but some will always come up from under. Just got my IPA Member News and on the back back is a bio note from Renee Gorman, a young woman who is the Syd Uni Campus Coordinator for the Young IPA. Here’s her story:

    ‘I don’t fit the stereotype of the ‘typical’ young conservative. While most of my peers don’t either, I break the mould more than most. My parents are both Labor voters. My siblings and I were raised under the yoke of fortnightly dole payments. The taxpayer funded every toy, meal and item of clothing. Instead of being grateful for this, my parents blamed everyone but themselves – including John Howard. Through all of this I remember thinking one hopeful thing: I am not going to be like them, I will escape. I did. I became and incredibly attentive student, eventually learning about and become a member of the Institute of Public Affairs ….

    My secondary education was at one of the most heavily unionized schools in the country. The constant indoctrination led me to believe that Gough Whitlam was the savior of humanity, and that the rich were inhuman’

    At 17 she met and eventually married a man from a very different background who made her see things differently.

    My story is from a different time and place but I too desperately wanted to get out from under, and my two marriages were important in that, as well as some self-education. The moral of it all Stimpy is that people can and do change even if the family fails to do its proper task. As long as there is some alternative available; it made me want to send a donation to the IPA. So many students these days have nowhere to go if they are feeling suffocated by leftism. IPA note that most of their recent survey respondents wanted more direct contact to be made to young people.

    Wading through the Productivity Commission’s 2016 report on migration:

    Only 30% of Australia’s c. 210 000 p.a. migrant intake is actually skilled (i.e. trade qualification or above), but the skills of migrants aren’t always matched to the current job market (hence the number of Indian engineers driving taxis, I suppose).

    Dependent spouses and children make up a higher percentage of the intake than skilled migrants.

    That means many skilled migrants are supporting a family of 2 or greater dependents. Thus, parents of migrants sponsored with a $50K bond will, as a cohort, cost the tax payer $2-3 billion over their life times, with the figure increasing with every year’s intake.

    As presently targeted the immigration intake provides little to no “demographic dividend” to Australia, i.e. it does not address the problem of an aging population, which could only be addressed through the migration program by allowing more younger migrants into the country, but they lack skills, so the solution lies elsewhere.

    The artificial stimulation to the economy courtesy high migration numbers may have masked two actual recessions.

    The government’s response? Well, the present year’s migrant intake wasn’t even mentioned in the last budget papers.

    Our country’s future is being given away by politicians to preserve the illusion of economic growth.

    Australia is a giant Potemkin village.

  108. Empire

    A better explanation is that Weinstein wanted to produce a movie of Mila 18 and expressed recent admiration for Israel.

    I don’t buy that either. The Swamp in general and the PR arm in particular, are divided on Z i onism.

    More likely a squirrel. Wankstain delivers a narrative of outrage about a powerful man hitting on ambitious women. The real story of course is sickos fiddling with kids.

  109. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    ps – In my case, I don’t blame my parents, as they were both psych cases who were doing their best to keep afloat by working but were unable to sustain work or any sort of family life. I hope Renee still gets on with her parents, because cutting ties is no answer. Her parents sound like inner-city luvvies. She doesn’t mention public housing, so they were probably on the arty fringe.

    I was under the impression they’d been wound back over the last four years, but labor will almost certainly reimpose* them.

    Re the Kanaka/Blackbirding comments above.

    About 20 years ago I met and used to have a beer with an old Kanaka elder out the back of Townsville and over a period of time he told me some of the stories as he knew them. And I have no idea how true they were but had no reason to doubt him.

    What he said was that the Kanakas were involved with developing land for cane growing and construction of railway lines. And with a huge smile he told me that we knew where the gold and gemstones were before anyone else. Then he would laugh.

    His favourite saying was “I believe in 2 things, God above and my wallet” while pointing overhead and patting his back pocket.

    The other thing he told me was that his family came from the South Pacific Island where a husband and wife missionary team came to his Island and his forebears had killed them both but the wife had died with such strength that the islanders were distraught with what they had done that there was a virtual mass conversion to Christianity.

    I forget the name of the Island and I did verify the story but you would have to look it up.

    Apart from many other fascinating stories he told me, including WWII Japanese invasion and resistance stories, he was scornful of Australian Aboriginals. What he said was that because we are black most people think we are Aboriginal but they are a lazy people.

    He would be dead by now.

    We already knew that the $50,000 aged parent visa was a bonanza for the ‘skilled migrant’ cohort.

    Even Trumble is trying to change that, for example by removing access to Medicare and limiting aged parents to four year visas

    We are actually importing a huge future problem for ourselves bu massively increasing the cohort requiring aged care.

    Our entire immigration programme, not just the humanitarian intake is a massive disaster.

    Indians driving taxis, delivering pizza and cooking fried chicken and invisible Chinese in the cash economy is not the solution to our economic woes.

    Family reunion visas are all but done, bar spouse and children under 18 but if we are allowing dad with a dud engineering degree, his wife and three kids in, what difference does it make, other than more people crowding into tiny apartments, more pressure on schools, health care and roads and more candidates for the NDIS?

    The ABC is pushing indigenous to nauseous levels.

    Classics is an apt description. While Indigenous societies are often referred to having an oral history, many stories and the knowledge within them, are told and maintained through dance and song.

    Classics? Spare me. And the stories are maintained through dance, song and oral tradition…because they had no written language.

    Most societies encode knowledge in songs — many English speakers would struggle to say the alphabet in order, without putting it to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

    Most societies also had a written language, books (or scrolls) and buildings called churches, monasteries and libraries: places where knowledge was recorded, transcribed and preserved.

    But for Indigenous societies, encoding information in this way has allowed for the faithful recreation of knowledge relating to the physical and spiritual world, allowing it to be maintained and enhanced across millennia.

    And the evidence that the knowledge has been faithfully recreated is? We know it has been maintained across millennia, how? And how does this “enhance” knowledge?

    It is a mystical BS.

    And the idea that “many English speakers would struggle to say the alphabet in order, without putting it to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” is tripe.

I wouldn’t be surprised if I was the only one listening (I lasted about 10 minutes during which time they each produced the amount of information normally contained in one simple sentence each).

    Nevertheless they were very impressed with each other. When Squalid finished talking his mate responded with “Wow!” Maybe Channel 10 could buy it off the ABC and make it into a TV show. If nothing else it will get them to where they are going a lot quicker.

    http://www.eurasiareview.com/11102017-islamic-state-misconception-of-bayat-nuances-in-oath-of-allegiance-analysis/

    In retrospect, this report from 2005 was bang on –

    ‘The RSM is the radical fringe of the Balik-Islam movement, literally “return to Islam”. Members call themselves “reverts”, not converts, for two reasons. First, they maintain that all humans are born free of sin into Islam, but, misled by parents or guardians, may be brought up in other traditions. When they revert to Islam, they are cleansed of sin. Secondly, they argue that Islam was the country’s original religion, whose spread was forcibly reversed by Spanish colonial intervention…Filipino workers returning from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf are the most important source of adherents for the more ideological forms of activist Balik-Islam.’

    and –

    ‘Several counter-terrorism “successes” have inadvertently deepened the nexus between foreign jihadis, Abu Sayyaf, the RSM, and more militant MILF members. One is pressure on the MILF through its peace talks with the government to stop harbouring foreign terrorists…This, as noted, has led the foreign fugitives to find other partners…Thirdly, the U.S.-Philippine “Balikatan” manoeuvres on Basilan island forced the core of ASG to flee to the Mindanao mainland (by way of Sulu), bringing it into more direct contact with militant MILF commanders seeking new alliances in the face of the moderate Al-Haj Murad’s rise to leadership.’

    Richmond Tigers leaked photo scandal ‘disgusting’

    Richard Ferguson
    The Australian
    12:29PM October 12, 2017

    The Victorian businesswoman who was instrumental in the birth of the AFL’s women’s league has labelled Richmond FC’s leaked topless photo scandal “disgusting” and called for players to be better educated on gender equality.

    Susan Alberti, the former vice-president of the Western Bulldogs, told The Australian she knew about the topless photo a week before it appeared in newspapers but she’s strongly backing AFL chief executive Gillon McLachan and Richmond president Peggy O’Neal’s handling of the leak.

    “It’s important that this isn’t just brushed aside. ‘Ho hum’. It’s not ‘ho hum’, it’s no laughing matter,” she said.

    “We have to keep reinforcing with both our male and female players that this sort of behaviour is unacceptable, we’ve worked really hard at my club to ingrain respect and responsibility but we’re not perfect. we have to do more.”

    There is currently a police investigation underway in to how a picture of the woman circulated and the player could face up to two years jail under tough sexting laws in Victoria.

The ensuing chaos has resulted in the closure of many schools, and the cancellation of 30 per cent of flights leaving French airports. The responsibility for the chaos lies with those resisting reform.

    Michael Mansell will outline his thoughts on a national treaty with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. He believes a national treaty is preferable to State or regional treaties. The content of a treaty must reflect the expectation of a settlement between the original peoples and the new nation of Australia. A treaty must deliver land, empowerment, a financial base and control over social harmony and cultural promotion. A successful treaty will provide real justice to Aboriginal people but also leave intact jobs, homes, lifestyles and institutions of non-Aboriginal people. A treaty or treaties will be legislated and could be secured by Constitutional entrenchment. Any treaty will be subject to the Constitution.

    From Pest Tatterns link. So, for any treaty will have to be entrenched in the Constitution, it will have to be approved at referendum?

  164. Mother Lode

    Even Trumble is trying to change that, for example by removing access to Medicare and limiting aged parents to four year visas

    The trick to understanding our immigration program – or any attempt to check the excesses of the mooching class, is to recognise that the carrion eating MSM will cleanse and sanitize even the most undeserving filth – just because it suits them to exercise their power over politicians.

    The pollies, who live every moment in a state of unremitting fear of bad press will fold like the cheap suits they wear – surrendering what will in each case tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars of tax payers money to spare themselves an afternoon of principle.

    Mansell wants reparations. Good start. But nothing can adequately compensate for a war of extermination.

    ‘BLACK SLAVES AND WHITE BRUTES
    SIR JOHN FORREST DEFENDS THE CHAINS. INHUMAN WHITE SAVAGERY. 1901

    ‘It is well known that the daily papers in Perth will not publish letters on The cruelties perpetrated upon the aboriginals by Nor’ West squatters. The columns of the “Age,” however, and, we need scarcely say, the columns of this paper are open to all who will humanely endeavour to mitigate the physical sufferings and
    allay the mental agonies of an unfortunate race against whom a cruel “civilisation” has declared a relentless war of extermination.

    The notorious Bendhu murders by the brothers Anderson were referred to in the “Age,” and Sir John Forrest had himself interviewed there. He gave himself away most lamentably. He set up the miserable defence, that because the Andersons were natives of Victoria, W.A. could not be held responsible for the disgrace attaching to the Bendhu Atrocity..

    ‘Two brothers of that name owned a station in the Nor’ West. Five aboriginals whom they “owned,” or appropriated, attempted to escape from their Illegal Bondage. the brothers tracked them to the next station, 40 miles away, chained them by their necks to their saddles, and dragged them back to their “home” station. No water was allowed them on the way, or even when they reached their destination. They were then flogged with a knotted rope, with the result that three of them–a man and two women–died. The other two (girls of 10 and 12 years respectively), after they had been mercilessly beaten, were turned adrift in such a condition that death would have been a mercy. After several abortive efforts, the Andersons were at length arrested by order of the Government yielding to pressure, and were brought to trial on a charge of murder. One of them died in gaol before the trial. It came out in evidence against the surviving brother–Ernest–that the man, and one of the women killed, had each a shoulder blade broken, and that both
    shoulder blades of the other woman had been smashed..
    ..When the Andersons were brought before the local court they were fined £2 and cautioned not to be so severe in future. The inquest on the dead blacks was just like that on Durack–nothing but a sham..

    John Forrest did not attempt to absolutely deny, when questioned in Melbourne, that gangs of blackfellows have been worked on the Roebourne-Cossack tramway with chains round their necks. He said he thought their hands were chained to the barrows; and that is not so. He attempted to excuse the inhumanity by saying that if they were not so chained, they would run away. Comment is unnecessary. It is evident that the place where it is necessary to chain human beings by the neck and compel them to work for paltry offences, must be nothing short of a hell upon earth.’

    I’ve been to parties where this has been the topic of conversation between women who seem quite happy to tell other women that they’ve been to see Doctor Whatever in Double Bay, swear by him darling etc. You have to be polite back, but truly, some of these women, often rake thin, and dressed very low cut, are sporting impossible bosoms when you consider the rest of their skinny frames. They don’t seem to care. Their husbands just pay up for it, and for the stretched face-lifts, more for wives’ egos than their own I think. It’s interesting that quite a few of these women are triple divorcees.

    Surrender, in military terms, is the relinquishment of control over territory, combatants, fortifications, ships or armament to another power. A surrender may be accomplished peacefully, without fighting, or it may be the result of defeat in battle. A sovereign state* may surrender following defeat in a war, usually by signing a peace treaty or capitulation agreement. A battlefield surrender, either by individuals or when ordered by officers, normally results in those surrendering becoming prisoners of war.

I’ve had four children, breast fed them all, my milky bits are still a soft pink (I am a natural English-rose in complexion) and I can still wear a wet t-shirt well (although not by choice, more when some child throws up on it). Nor am I in my first youth, so let’s conclude on that for da boobies. Women are variable in many ways and across many of our physical experiences. Our dominant hormone is oestrogen and it works its wonders in mysterious ways. 🙂

    The consensus is the photogenic tigress is two different ladies. One is a photo of a naked woman with ‘go tiges’ artfully written on her bare bottom, the other is taking her puppies for a premiership lap of honour. Both cases seem to be without any duress being made.

    An extract from the List devoted to the Irishman Walter Malcolmson, who worked in The Pilbara and on return to the UK took up the fight against WA slavery.

    THE BLACK SLAVES OF WEST AUSTRALIA How White Aliens Treat Black Natives.
    (By Walter Malcolmson in the Belfast Northern Whig).

    ‘Sheep and cattle stations stretch away from the Gascoyne in the south to Kimberley district in the North. The work on these stations is entirely done by aborigines, who are bound down to work under worse Acts and laws than ever existed on the plantations in American slave days…No money as wages is mentioned or paid them. The natives are signed on for 12 months, and are tied down in every imaginable way. The penalty for breaking any portion of the numerous clauses is three months gaol with hard labor for the natives; a money fine for the ‘master’ if he breaks his contract.’ Thus the petty Parliament of Western Australia have done what Great Britain herself would not do :

    they have established a SYSTEM OF SLAVERY worse than that which existed in the United States before the Civil War.’

    ‘Here is what Mr. Malcolmson says about the cruelties inflicted upon their slaves by leading church members in Western Australia …’I have seen the horsewhip and waddy used on them by their masters. In one case I saw a boy of about 14 years flogged brutally with a horsewhip by his master, right in the centre of Roebourne, the chief town of the Nor -west. The boy’s master was a leading member of the local church…

    Aborigines whom the slave-owning governing classes of West Australia declare to have broken the law are compelled to labor publicly for years with heavy chains round their neck, which are no taken off either night or day. Mr. Malcolmson says ‘Native prisoners are worked by the West Australian Government on the tram line connecting Roebourne and Cossack. They keep this line in repair, and are chained in couples at work. The chains are padlocked round each man’s neck, are from 3.0ft to 12ft long, and strong enough to hold a couple of working bullocks…I had it from the mouth of the armed warder in charge of these ‘holiday-makers’ that the chains are never taken of night or day whilst sentence is being served— it may last several years. I challenged Sir John Forrest in the Melbourne ‘Age’ to deny my statements and he was unable to do so.

    ‘..Plenty of proof can be produced that the indentured natives are cruelly treated, but the Government of West Australia contains too many squatter members, who employ these cheap slaves, to listen to anyone wishing to give evidence on their behalf. Sir Gerard Smith, when Governor of Western Australia, wrote
    the Colonial Secretary (Mr. Chamberlain) on May 19, 1896, about the natives, whom we FLOG AND IMPRISON with a severity out of all proportion to the nature of the offence committed. Bishop Reilly, Church of England Bishop of Perth, who visited the North, on his return to Perth in July, 1899, wrote to the Governor— ‘One cause, perhaps the greatest cause, in my opinion, of the cruelty is the system by which
    natives are indentured to settlers. This is only A FORM OF SLAVERY, as the natives, for the most part, do
    not know – what it means, and, for the rest, do not dare not to sign the agreement. As soon as a man is indentured, he is absolutely under the power of his master. In writing me in May, 1901 Bishop Reilly said : ‘You will be glad to hear that I am always fighting the battle of the native’s with those, in authority. I offered to give evidence on oath before the Commonwealth Parliament and furnish particulars of numerous cases of cruelty witnessed by myself, but the black man has not many friends in his own country my evidence was not wanted.’

    I looked for linea nigra, not there. Many examples have the line only below the navel ..

    Only ever had a vague hint of it with any of the four and not a trace of it now. I have been lucky in pregnancies, they leave very little impact on me, and I get pregnant easily, although childbirth is a bad dream.

    Da Hairy Ape fell for me when I was in my later thirties and he is not the sort of man who … well, I will leave it at that. Johanna will be on my case pronto, and I am merely amusing myself out of doing anything else this afternoon.

    One thing you can be sure of is that no player in the AWFL will get fingered for sexual assault.

    I see what you did there…

    On the boobs.

    Why is a stripper slut getting shirty that the AFL player has the pics she allowed him to take?

    Lets be reasonable, if the price of this ladies modesty is the door charge at a strip joint I think the “crime”is non existent.

    To sum up, we have a stripper, a person who takes off her clothes for men, distributes lap dances and other “favours”(depending on the club) thinking shes hard done by because shes had her Premiership bits photographed?

    Im glad crime is effectively zero in Australia or Id be inclined to think most of the scolds involved are mentally ill.

    Mansell is just promoting his Practical Justice Initiative Indigenous Lecture Series: Michael Mansell tonight. ‘Aboriginal tax’ is his rhetorical hook, and he’s hooked right into the bigotfish with his first cast.

    LOL. The only thing Mansell has ever hooked is OPM.

    The Tasmanian Aboriginal Corporation employs 177 staff and is the lucky recipient of $10.7M of federal largesse. Thanks to OPM the TAC has accumulated more than $20M in assets.

    Yet they only managed to raise just $1414 via fundraising and donations in FY16. No notes to the financial statements, so who knows WTF really goes on.

    Great work if you can get it Micky.

    In a move likely to please supporters of Jeremy Corbyn, the International Monetary Fund has called for increased taxation on top earners in major economies

    They’ve also called for da ebil CO2 to be exorcised more quickly.

    IMF tells rich nations that greater urgency needed on climate change (Grauniad yesterday)

    Looks like the IMF have gone full communist. Or maybe they’re just bored with being a money mob and want to don green hairshirts and chant ‘om’ to Gaia.

    Test Pattern – there are always two sides to every story of the type you have been putting up here. Indentured labour was intended as a protection for both the employer and the indentured worker. It was a system that grew out of the drift to the cattle stations of aborigines seeking work, but who came with their families to also be accommodated and cared for, and who still went on tribal ‘walkabout’. I agree that it was probably often abused. We are reflecting on a period of culture contact, and our contrast should be with similar situations elsewhere in the world at that time. We should also remember that what we see as abuse these days was a part of normal behavior for many in the past. Times in the bush were rough on all and rough men and manners abounded. The young white boy from a very poor background we know as Bert Facey from his memoir, was severely horsewhipped as a twelve year old for almost nothing when sent out to work on a farm. No-one approved of it.

    I think the same sort of thing was recounted a lot about aboriginal abuses and I don’t doubt for a minute that dreadful things happened and that many whites, especially those far from the situation, were appalled at certain ‘punishments’ on prison road gangs, of the sort also suffered in earlier years by white convicts. But it was not official policy and officialdom, although often slow, did rouse to punish and curtail when the evidence was there. The failures were those of individuals, both employers and administrators, not of the ‘system’ itself. The other side of it is that aboriginal stockmen were employed and highly valued, and what is more they felt valued, whereas today a culture of dependence has removed any sense of integrity.

    ‘Australia will not deploy military troops to the Philippines, especially in Mindanao, where state troopers are battling Islamic State-linked Maute terrorists, ambassador Amanda Gorely said yesterday.
    “We’d like to make it clear that there will be no Australian military troops on the ground and there won’t be boots on the ground in Mindanao or in the Marawi area,” Gorely told reporters aboard an Australian navy ship docked at Pier 15, South Harbour, Manila.’

    Lets be reasonable, if the price of this ladies modesty is the door charge at a strip joint I think the “crime”is non existent.

    Yes, no crime, but perhaps a civil case? Has the stripper assigned her IP rights to the venue? What was the contract between the venue and the taker of the photo?

    Page Three Perfects have value. Has someone suffered a loss? Why are the cops involved? Is there a doughnut supply issue?

    Those mammaries are stupendous, spoiled somewhat by bilateral black squaring disease… which I haven’t been able to cure.

    Though this appalling disease is defacing the subjects in question, and based on comments above it should be remembered that mammarian areolae darkening can be racial, no need for a history of gravidity..
    The absent linea nigra would support my view that the model is dark-haired and nulli-gravida.

    The conundrum was solved long ago. Stay lean and beautiful, then blow out once a decent spouse is secured. Then Murphy fucked it all up with the Family Law Act when marriage became a temporary relationship of convenience.

    Delta, your granddaughter needs to expand on Winstons idea but expand the market to women.

    For some reason sheliah’s either don’t know how to check their car tyre pressure, or don’t particularly care. Is their some sort of stigma I don’t know about? Seriously, when was the last time you were at a Service Station and you saw a chick checking their tyres? Huh? Huh? Nope, it’s always the bloke. There’s something weird going on here.

    Buy the young lass one of those compressor thingys that plug into the cigarette lighter. Package the service up with checking the oil and water. Us blokes will be eternally grateful.
