    So there you have it. The Stupid.Fucking.W.A.Liberals voted down the smaller gold tax for a much larger payroll tax.

    Is there anyone still in doubt that the Libs must be destroyed?

    Anyone?

    WA Lieborals should be embarrassed to even be discussing economic management. They should take a leaf out of Emperor Barney’s playbook and take a vow of silence for the next 10 years.

    I know they exist. MrsM saw one about a year before I saw the same one. In our bedroom in an overseas posting. We quietly had the place blessed and told no-one else but the local pastor. 10 years later at a dinner party with a couple who moved into that very same house after us, unprompted they told us of their experience with the very same being with a pinpoint accurate description of what we saw and the loaction in the room , 10 years before.

Then to keep people who are bored with this happy, I slot in some total speculation about the Holy Grail at the end.

    This is going to become a huge problem for women’s sports and the administrators are going to have to bite the bullet and stop it. I know an older woman who dedicated her life to a lawn bowls club, was club president, held all the records and was beaten by a transgender (male) player and had all her records taken. She quit the sport in disgust. You have to wonder – if this is allowed, why would women keep turning up?

    I’ve just been outside feeding koels. Cuckoos, who lay their ideology into other people’s brains. Seems an excellent metaphor.

    Had a first. Two male koels and one female hand fed today. It looks like one of the males is a juvenile just back from migration, because he hungrily downed his food then went and sat on a branch all afternoon looking exhausted. The other male kept on coming to me for nice lumps of mince then taking them up to his lady. She scoffed it all but he didn’t get his reward poor thing. Maybe tomorrow.

    Re Mango-gate.

    Given the triggering Mango poem was ‘unseen’, I was wondering if the youth complaining online about this stellar piece of Indig verse even knew who the author was or what her declared ethnic roots were ?

    Buzzfeed has of course been on the case. FWIW, at least they posted these comments trawled from the web:

    On Tuesday morning students woke to multiple media outlets covering their reaction to the poem. “We didn’t know she was Abo,” said one in a Facebook group.

    Another student defended a meme that identified van Neerven as a chimp.

    “People have misunderstood the chimp image as it was meant to represent the author having the identical knowledge of a chimp when writing the poem, but of course people gotta play the victim in her part and interpret it as being racist,” they wrote.

    At face value – at lot of the youth had no idea of the author ( I certainly didn’t ).

    Naturally, it goes viral on the webs and one kid gets doxed and starts receiving the obligatory social-media facilitated death threats.

    I am assuming the Human Rights Commission has a crash team chasing IDs of all the online perps, and will be going for as many of these kids under 18C as they can.

    Meanwhile

    1. Did California’s Plastic Bag Ban contribute to San Diego’s Hepatitis A Crisis?

    2. Is State’s Plastic Bag Ban Causing Rise in Hepatitis Cases?

    Even Dr. Wilma Wooten, public health officer and director of public health services for the County of San Diego’s Health and Human Services Agency, acknowledged the importance of plastic bags for the local homeless population, telling the San Diego Reader:

    Yes, absolutely, we know people use the bags for that. We know people don’t have bathrooms and they can put bags in cans and buckets and maintain good hygiene. That’s why we put plastic bags in the hygiene kits we’re handing out. That’s what we expect people will use them for.

    This is not the first time that a law restricting the use of plastic bags has been linked to a public health problem. Studies have shown that reusable bags, if not properly washed, can play a role in the cross-contamination of foods, which can cause food poisoning. In 2010, a reusable grocery bag was blamed for a norovirus outbreak that sickened nine members of a girls’ soccer team in Oregon.

    While it’s unclear whether the plastic bag ban played a prominent role in the San Diego outbreak, policymakers—and voters—in other states should carefully consider the unintended consequences of plastic bag bans and other seemingly benign laws. They may end up doing more harm than good.

    Yes, I link that study when some pollie aspires to banning plastic bags. Also the other study which shows that single use plastic bags are greener than the reusable ones. And that’s without washing the reusable bags – washing the wretched things must consume vast amounts more energy and material than the single use ones require to be manufactured.

    But it is as I said this morning: the Left has herd doctrines. If you point out they are unscientific you still get booted from the herd.

    All it would take to meet the environmental issues with single use plastic bags yet maintain hygiene is to mandate use of corn starch ones which are digestible by bugs or turtles or whatever. Problem fixed. But sadly the plastic-bags-are-bad doctrine seems unrepealable from the Lefty religious canon.

    Whilst I have no problem with Erin Molan I do think having somebody who played the game as host makes better sense. There is another sports shown where a former weather girl hosts it. I dont watch it.

    Vautin put a lot into that show including getting seriously injured in one stunt. 23 three year run and 11 Logies is pretty good going.

    ‘The Stupid.Fucking.W.A.Liberals’

    Stupid fucking ALP.

    Wyatt’s a lazy Minister with lazy staff. Neither he nor McGowan made a genuine attempt to explain and sell the gold royalty to the public. They relied on ‘We’re Govt we have a mandate blah blah’ reminiscent of their Perth Modern disaster.

    Wyatt and staff should’ve gone through the 50 odd gold producers with a microscope eg Regis which operates the old Famous Blue, renamed Gloster. Regis produced some 300,000 ounces and made an after tax profit of $138 mill. $3.5 mill isn’t going to stop expansion unless the price drops, stop them raising capital, or lose jobs. Wyatt’s staff could’ve presented heaps of examples like this. They didn’t, lazy pricks.

    Miners’ lobby groups were extolling both WA and Turnbull Govts just days before Wyatt’s budget regarding assistance for explorers ie WA’s Exploration Development Incentive (EDI) and Canberra’s Junior Mineral Exploration Tax Credit (JMETC). JMETC allows investors to credit 30% of greenfield expenditure, similar to Canada eg Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Employment is predicted to decrease by some 75% in 15 years, some 70% of ex at the moment is just extending old mines and some 80% of production comes from deposits found before 1980. In the March quarter expenditure on greenfields ex fell 21.4% and brownfields fell 13.8%

    Most greenfields ex is done by small explorers, not producers. Making investment in junior ex more attractive to potential investors will result in more greenfields and jobs. Even if the gold price stays over $160 most brownfields will close by 2030 and jobs will be lost.

    Wyatt had options to eg royalty exemptions for marginal operations that contribute to the community rather than one size fits all. He’s a WA lawyer with family in the Goldfields. He’s hardly going to shit in his own nest. If this sort of non-selling of policy keeps up McGowan will need a reshuffle.

  81. Oh come on

    I don’t get it. In WA in the mid 2000s, Colesworths had gone all green and you had to purchase single use bags or you could buy resusable green bags for $2 each. I’m pretty sure this was not a legislative change, though – just the supermarket majors wanting to play the green card and maybe save a few bucks on plastic bags.

    I left the country in 2007 and returned in 2013, and by that time the place had become more civilised in one respect – Colesworths were again giving away plastic bags as needed. I figured that for once common sense had had a win over green hysteria; maybe they’d done a study that ascertained the reusable green bag scheme was resulting in even more waste and materials being used to carry purchases than when plastic bags were free, so the supermarkets went back to giving away plastic bags again.

    But now the state govt is making it law! Stupid prick premier of ours set up a presser at a local primary school, listened to the anti-plastic bag speeches a bunch of primary school students gave and pretended these were so convincing that he was moved to ban plastic bags on the spot. It seems we really are being governed by children, particularly on the environmental front.

    I’m surprised it makes much of a difference in lawn bowls where precision usually beats power.

    Tel – ‘Way back in the days of indoor cricket there’d be a few A grade and representative ladies who’d play in the opposition teams reasonably often. We were heroic D graders yet the difference in coordination and ability was quite stark. Same goes if you see the Australian womens’ side live, which I did once at Ncl #1 ground in a world cup match.

    We talked about Cate McGregor earlier. She is aged over 60 yet was in contention for a batter spot in one of the womens’ representative 20:20 sides. At age 60! Batting is timing and coordination.

    The leadership of Australia is founded on the recognition that the true will of the people cannot be disclosed through parliamentary votes and plebiscites, but that the will of the people in its pure and uncorrupted form can only be expressed through Executive Power. Thus a distinction must be drawn between the supposed will of the people in a parliamentary democracy, which merely reflects the conflict of the various social interests, and the true will of the people in the Prime Minister, in which the collective will of the real political unit is manifested.

    Men generally have better depth perception and vision than women. It may help in judging distance/strength etc in Lawn bowls.

    I left the country in 2007 and returned in 2013, and by that time the place had become more civilised in one respect – Colesworths were again giving away plastic bags as needed.

    OCO – I think that would have been a single store policy. Back then one of my local Woolies did the same – voluntarily stopped handing out single use bags. I carried my shopping (fortunately not much) out in my hands and didn’t go back there again. Instead I went to the other Woolies about the same distance in the opposite direction. Who never stopped giving them out.

    Almost certainly that store’s sales crashed because when I tried them out on spec some years later (because Coles happened to’ve run out of something I wanted) they were back to plastic bags again.

    A Haibun from Samuel Wagan Watson would’ve been a better option than Mangoes. He uses the Japanese form, notes of a road trip that can then be pared down to a haiku. Heaps of stuff for kids to analyse. It’s not the only point of contact between Japanese and indigenous artforms. Japanese tourists and meditation enthusiasts flock to Gove to learn to play Yidaki.

    Hiroki Morimoto

    https://jpf.org.au/events/echoes-solo-didgeridoo-concert/

    ‘The term “haibun” was first used by the 17th-century Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō, in a letter to his disciple Kyorai in 1690. Bashō was a prominent early writer of haibun, then a new genre combining classical prototypes, Chinese prose genres and vernacular subject matter and language. He wrote some haibun as travel accounts during his various journeys, the most famous of which is Oku no Hosomichi (Narrow Road to the Interior).

    Bashō’s shorter haibun include compositions devoted to travel and others focusing on character sketches, landscape scenes, anecdotal vignettes and occasional writings written to honor a specific patron or event. His Hut of the Phantom Dwelling can be classified as an essay while, in Saga Nikki (Saga Diary), he documents his day-to-day activities with his disciples on a summer retreat.

    Traditional haibun typically took the form of a short description of a place, person or object, or a diary of a journey or other series of events in the poet’s life. Haibun continued to be written by later haikai poets such as Yosa Buson, Kobayashi Issa and Masaoka Shiki.

    Man who stole war veteran’s wallet in Pinjarra apologises
    Seven News, PerthNow
    October 17, 2017 4:29pm

    THE “heartless” thief who stole an elderly war veteran’s wallet — with $1000 inside — has apologised outside court.

    Jamie David Brown went to Ernest Haynes’ Pinjarra home earlier this month and asked the 94-year-old for a glass of milk.

    “I think my door might have been open and he came in and said ‘I only want a cup of milk, I have run out of milk’,” Mr Haynes said.

    “I said, ‘I think I can fix you up for that’, and I got a bottle and poured some for him. We talked a little bit and then he said, ‘I better go’, and he shook my hand and away he went.”

    While inside the home, Brown stole Mr Haynes’ wallet. The court heard inside the wallet was $1000 – not $1500 as originally feared.
    94 year-old ex-serviceman Ernie Haynes had his wallet stolen by a well-spoken young man who knocked on his door for a cup of milk. Picture: Simon Santi

    But it wasn’t until Mr Haynes’ neighbour came to visit that the 94-year-old realised his wallet was stolen.

    Neighbour Wayne Cowcher said his security cameras captured a man arriving on a bicycle before leaving about six minutes later.

    “It is heartless and it has been very upsetting for Ernie,” he said at the time.

    On Tuesday Jamie Brown pleaded guilty to stealing the wallet and apologised outside court.

    “I know what I did and it’s disrespectful,” he said.

    “If I had a job, I’d pay him back you know.”

    Brown remains out on bail until he is sentenced in December.

    The AFL’s general manager of inclusion and social policy, Tanya Hosch, thanked Mouncey for her understanding in going through the process.

    “Hannah’s passion for football is undeniable, and I want to thank her and her team for their constructive participation in the decision-making process,” Hosch said.
    “It was important to involve the right stakeholders to review all the information and data available.

    “Every case will be decided on its own merits along with the individual circumstances of each future nominee.

    “We acknowledge Hannah’s openness and co-operation. She has contributed to a process which will substantially inform the development of the AFL’s transgender policy and procedure for future players at the elite level.”

    Mouncey is, however, free to monster women in lesser competitions:

    “Despite not being able to take part in the draft, the AFL has given me the all clear to play for Ainslie next year in the AFL Canberra competition for which I am very grateful and look forward to doing in 2018, before hopefully being able to nominate for next year’s draft.

    How is that equal? How is that inclusive? Wasn’t the point of changing the AFL logo to ‘Yes’ to show to the world the game was moving forward?

    The effortless way in which they ban a tranny from playing AFL – in direct contravention to their own rules – because they know the optics of that tranny in the public light right now will destroy their cause
    (too soon! too soon!), shows that these people are ruthless political operatives.

    It’s the same thing as the homo marriage thing banning fags from appearing in media at the moment.

    They know what they’re doing, these things are conscious tactical decisions made in meeting rooms or these organisations.

    Imagine sitting in a meeting room in a high rise in the CBD somewhere with a bunch of over-‘educated’ nu-male cockroach class losers discussing the “optics” of allowing a man to play in the womens AFL and whether it should be allowed, or if it’s too soon and so should be “managed”.

    It wasn’t a pot plant.

    “Last week, after Lauren Sivan came forward with her awful story about Harvey Weinstein and the ‘potted plant’ at Socialista, he contacted me. We hadn’t spoken in years. He told me he needed a statement about his involvement in Socialista, which I said I’d be happy to provide, and I did, and then his lawyers said he needed one saying I hadn’t seen anything that night. I told them I knew something happened that night, I just hadn’t known what specifically. I couldn’t make a statement absolving him because when she came forward, my memory clicked.

    Harvey had been an investor in Socialista and I had appeared in one of the films he distributed, ‘Factory Girl.’ What I remember about this incident is that my sous chef came into my office, furious, telling me that ‘some fat fuck’ saying he’s an owner — he didn’t know the name — had come into the kitchen with a woman and shoved a $100 bill at him and told him to get out. It was like 1:30 in the morning and he’d been the only one still there. The chef told me he was going to quit.

    I went to check things out and saw Harvey soon after, fixing his belt, behind the bar. I never saw the woman. My chef and I go to the kitchen. He picks up a pot that had been placed back on the stove. It had been defiled. It was so bizarre. We couldn’t believe it happened.

    I couldn’t prove any of it so I never confronted him. Harvey was an investor and it was around the time he married Georgina Chapman.

    My heart goes out to all the brave women who have come forward. Once Ms. Sivan spoke out, and after being contacted by several media outlets, I’ve felt responsible to state what I remembered.”

    Australians have swung behind the case for same-sex marriage in a strong sign the Yes campaign will prevail in the postal survey on the social reform, with 59 per cent support among those who have already cast their votes.

    A special Newspoll shows the Yes campaign has a formidable lead among the millions of Australians who have sent in their postal votes, with only 38 per cent voting No.

    Advocates for traditional marriage face a gap so great that they can only succeed by winning three out of every four remaining votes.

In one exchange, she says that journalists covered Trump in such a sensational way during the election season so as to deter readers from voting for him. Shoe also shares her negative opinion of Vice President Mike Pence, citing his religious views.

So we saved a few of them for this latest video edition of Mark’s Mailbox, starting with the case for “The Case for Colonialism” and against anti-colonialists who want to beat up editors of scholarly journals, and progressing to aspects of elite condescension and the death of comedy.

    Disgraceful reporting. Designed to be misleading.

    I do think there might be a wee little gap there between initiating a bit of civilised discourse and being dominated.

    Well, it was M0nty’s word, so it is contextualized back to his mention of a thought process he claimed Twostix held about women, not to any manifested ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ stuff, Zippy.

    Personally, like many women, I have quite a few thought processes going on during civilized discourse of the type under discussion. Essentially, it is what is going on in the head that counts in matters of the heart as they relate to the body. I note here too that men and women are a little different in this regard, with men being rather more instrumentally (as it were) focused than are women in their thinking about it all. Hence we hear discussion by experts in such matters about how women respond to flowers, chocolates and not rushing things (except when we do get a bit rushy ourselves, as sometimes the mood takes us).

    As I implied previously, M0nts, you have a steep learning curve on this and I hope you are taking notes.

    And why am I up at this hour, blogging? Because I am. Awoke suddenly to find myself wide awake.
