  1. Hey mole, I have found from personal experience that angle grinders cauterize as they cut.
    Furthermore, they are so quick that they make significant inroads into the flesh before the pain hits.

    It must be confusing being a lying hack cloaking yourself in the tattered rags of respectability.
    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/nov/30/gloria-steinem-on-her-bill-clinton-essay-i-wouldnt-write-the-same-thing-now
    Gloria Steinem would not mount the same vigorous defence of Bill Clinton today that she offered in a controversial 1998 article that downplayed accusations of harassment against the then president, the feminist icon has told the Guardian.

    But Steinem said she did not regret writing the New York Times article in the first place.

    “We have to believe women. I wouldn’t write the same thing now because there’s probably more known about other women now. I’m not sure,” she said on the red carpet of an annual comedy benefit for the Ms Foundation for Women, of which she is a founder.

    “What you write in one decade you don’t necessarily write in the next. But I’m glad I wrote it in that decade.”


    Steinem’s op-ed has been held up as a prime example of how Democrats and their allies reflexively rallied to Clinton’s defense, an argument made most forcefully by the writer Caitlin Flanagan in the Atlantic.

    “It slut-shamed, victim-blamed and age-shamed; it urged compassion for and gratitude to the man the women accused,” Flanagan wrote. “The notorious 1998 New York Times op-ed by Gloria Steinem must surely stand as one of the most regretted public actions of her life.”

    But if those regrets exist, they are not Steinem’s.

    “I’m glad I wrote it at the time,” she said. “Because the danger then was we were about to lose sexual harassment law because it was being applied to extramarital sex, free will, extramarital sex, as with Monica Lewinsky.”

    ..
    Jones claimed Clinton in his role as Arkansas’s governor summoned her to his hotel room, where he touched her, tried to kiss her, dropped his pants and asked for oral sex.

    A judge later dismissed Jones’s case, saying Clinton’s alleged behavior, while “boorish and offensive”, did not meet the legal definition of sexual harassment.

    In her op-ed, Steinem was even more generous toward Clinton.

    “Clinton seems to have made a clumsy sexual pass, then accepted rejection,” Steinem wrote, adding “there appears to be little evidence” of Jones suffering psychological damage.

    Steinem’s thinking on Jones and her accusations seems unchanged today.

    Asked if Jones’s accusation amounted to something other than a “free will” encounter, Steinem replied, “Paula Jones, in spite of all the pressures on her, said very clearly, ‘He said to me, I wouldn’t want you to do anything you don’t want to do.’ That was part of her testimony.

    “The problem at the time was, the sexual harassment law was in danger,” she said. “If Clinton had resigned, that would have endangered the law.”

    they are so quick that they make significant inroads into the flesh before the pain hits.

    But what if I like the pain???

  4. No mole. I’m one of the many who have had little mishaps with the angle grinder.
    There are some horror stories out there.

    I agree, Frollicking. Arky is a hypochondriac masochist (with ADHD), so nothing less than an oxy torch will supply the required pain.

    From the early days of its rule Iran’s regime has been increasing economic pressure on the people, especially the lower class and most deprived. A vivid result of such practice has been the astonishing phenomenon of many Iranians willing to sell their kidneys and other organs, and even mothers pre-selling their unborn fetus. This is parallel to the growing phenomenon of child labor, a swelling number of homeless people roaming the streets and people even resorting to making homes out of graves.

    I wonder who it could be? The news report is mysteriously sparse.
    But enough with oddly lacking details, in other news…

    Pew: Even if Migration Ended, Europe’s Muslim Population Will Continue to Surge — Sweden 1/3 Muslim by 2050

    The Muslim population of Sweden could hit 30 per cent by 2050 if current migration patterns continue, with the figure hitting 14 per cent continent-wide unless there are radical changes to Europe’s attitudes and policies towards mass migration.

    One third muslim? More Malmos will be needed. I guess that means news reports in 2050 will be even less detailed.

    Watching as kidney stones are playing up. Ouch and Ouch.
    They have completely oversold the rain in Western Vic. Other weather sites put another possible inch for tomorrow but nothing huge and drier the further West you go.
    It’s now all NE Vic, which usually cops a deluge with lows and high humidity in Summer. Gippsland welcomes these events to boost dams and pasture and they’ve had a very dry Winter and Spring.
    I think BoM were hoping for a global warmy spectacular to back the pay dispute. Cynical me.

    Turnbull is actually right.
    John Barilaro is an imbecile. The loss in Queenland had little to do with Turnbull.
    And yes, he was just obediently following Alan Jones’s line. Which is pretty strange given that Jones is pro-homosexual ‘marriage,’ anti-Adani and pro banking inquiry. The gall on Jones – pulling off this daily performance of being a red meat realist when he is, in fact, a Turnbullian leftist wacko.

    Down here is south-west Vicco, the promised biblical rain event — who one meteorologist my lefty brother quotes said yesterday “could top everything he’s ever seen” in his 33 years at Their BOM — is turning into a giant fizzer — lots of cloud on the satellite map, but stuff all rain, which is now heading for Gippsland.

    Rain has also started in Melbourne but is light in most places, with 1mm recorded between 9am and 10.30am this morning.

    However senior meteorologist Scott Williams from the extreme weather desk at the Bureau of Meteorology warned Melburnians not to be complacent as they left home this morning.

    I’ve got the sense that the BOM have picked up their scare tactics from the US where weather events are over-hyped to the extreme.

    They don’t much care if they’re wrong, because the over-hyping is always sold as cautionary. The few times when they are right is propagandized to the hilt.

    Warrant sought for Clive Palmer’s arrest

    Published: December 1 2017 – 11:25AM

    Queensland Nickel’s liquidators are seeking to have a warrant issued for Clive Palmer’s arrest after the businessman failed to show up for a court date on Thursday.

    Liquidators have sought an urgent application to issue a warrant for Mr Palmer’s arrest in the Federal Court at 10.15am on Friday.

    But Mr Palmer says he is not concerned about the application and he was not given sufficient notice of Thursday’s hearing.

    Nine’s 11:30am story about Melbourne weather led the bulletin. It was like a warning of Armageddon. The reporter talked about the coming Extreme Weather Event and warned people in low lying areas they should consider leaving.

    Meanwhile Nine is panning around Melbourne at the slightly grey skies, with maybe a little drizzle. Jogger enjoying a run in a pretty decent sort of day really. Incongruous.

    SAN FRANCISCO – A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a Mexican man accused of killing a woman on a San Francisco pier in a case that touched off a national immigration debate.

    Jurors alerted the judge Thursday that they had a verdict in the death of Kate Steinle. Word came hours after they asked to see the gun used in the shooting.

    Jose Ines Garcia Zarate had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation when Steinle was fatally shot in the back in 2015. Garcia Zarate said the shooting was an accident.

Any members of the audience who are killed by bullets returning to the ground will be hailed as martyrs – unless they are women, who shouldn’t be there in the first place.

    It looks like the tax plan may be off the table.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said the next vote in the tax debate will come at 11 a.m. Friday, as work continues behind the scenes to win over skeptical deficit hawks and other hold-outs.

    Multiple GOP senators leaving the chamber after a dramatic late afternoon vote said a key proposal for deficit hawks — a trigger to raise tax rates if sufficient economic growth did not materialize — would not pass procedural muster and would need to find something else to satisfy the bloc of deficit hawk holdouts, led by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).

    “It doesn’t look like the trigger is going to work, according to the parliamentarian,” Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) said. “So we have an alternative, frankly: a tax increase we don’t want to do to try to address Sen. Corker’s concerns.”

    Corker told reporters: “My understanding is, that the parliamentarian has ruled against it so they’re just going to automatically put [tax increases] in, period.” Corker and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said the revenue raised with tax increases — which senators say would kick in six years after the enactment of the tax legislation — would total about $350 billion, although Cornyn suggested that figure may need to go higher.

    The Abbott Downfall redux #2: embarrassing, half-arsed defence:

    Mr Turnbull said Mr Barilaro had made similar criticisms, “a little while ago and I left a message for him and he did not call me back”.

    Premier Gladys Berejiklian said in a statement that Mr Barilaro “expressed a personal view which I do not share”.

    Julie Bishop said she could not disagree more with Mr Barilaro

    “He is not a federal member of parliament, I don’t know him, I have never met him, it is a regrettable comment, it is uncalled for, it is wrong, I reject it,” Senator Cormann said.

    The full post by Holdsworth about Prince George is part of a list of nine suggestions to force LGBT inclusion in the Church of England.

    “If people don’t want to engage in campaigning in this way, they do in England have another unique option, which is to pray in the privacy of their hearts (or in public if they dare) for the Lord to bless Prince George with a love, when he grows up, of a fine young gentleman,” it reads.

    “A royal wedding might sort things out remarkably easily, though we might have to wait 25 years for that to happen. Who knows whether that might be sooner than things might work out by other means?”

    They are a New Zealanders removable, upper and lower dentures that have been sharpened.

    Mulesing clips are meant to operate by being held in the hand.
    For efficiency and perverse s3xual pleasure, most NZs keep the dentures in the mouth while performing the mulesing.

    “In the United Kingdom we persecute people with right wing views, yet we allow extremist Islamist groups with links to terrorist organisations to thrive, to be registered as charidees, and to award prizes for ‘Islamophobe of the year’ to the former head of the Equalities Commission, for example.”

    In the United Kingdom we hate the ‘far right’ so much that we allow children to be raped and assaulted and doused with petrol and when they complain we call them prostitutes, and when their parents complain we arrest them, because we don’t want to play into the hands of the ‘far right’, so we have to ‘change the narrative.”

    Sexual harassment at UN talks weakens the fight against climate change

    When we began publishing stories of sexual harassment at UN climate talks earlier this month, I did not know how people would react.

    After Farhana Yamin and Meera Ghani broke the silence on this issue, I wondered if more women would come forward. Would they be willing to open up about moments of vulnerability? Would they dare point the finger at powerful perpetrators?

    Of course, you know the answer to #MeToo.

    One 34-year-old related an incident from this month’s climate summit in Bonn. A much older man she met in a professional capacity talked at her, sat too close and insisted on accompanying her to her next meeting – which she had invented as a polite excuse to get rid of him.

THAT’s the political game at hand now on both sides and the CONservatives have decided to play ball – fk the base constituents. They don’t matter.

    The trough dwellers are scared shitless of Trump because he has successfully pulled back the curtain exposing the Uniparty betrayals.

    Britons are now hostages on their own island.

    David Warren:

    There is a large and growing defection, worldwide, of Muslims to the Christian religion. This we know from many sources; I’ve been aware of the phenomenon for more than twenty years. It does not make the news because it is not “newsworthy.” That is to say, it does not fit with anyone’s agenda in the West, and is anyway a dangerous story to cover, for subjects and journalists alike. Oddly enough, it gets most play in Islamic media, where “we are losing the battle of conversions” has become almost an obsession. By “worldwide” I mean in Europe and the Americas, in Asia and in Africa, and also throughout the Dar al-Islam. It is of great historical significance, for it has been practically a truism that Muslims don’t convert. “Death for apostasy” is only the beginning of the disincentives, built into any society in the process of Islamicization.

    But times have changed, and through “globalization” and mass emigration, especially to Europe, opportunities for defecting have grown. Along with this have come huge incentives for abandoning Islam. We may thank the “Islamist” terrorists for providing most of them. We have, among lapsing Muslims themselves, a very human disgust with religious fanatics whose “outreach” consists of blowing people up in the largest possible numbers. The more they succeed in establishing their own authority within Islam, the more their natural targets (i.e. the “mystically” as opposed to “politically” religious) flee the religion.

    Western missionary attempts to convert Muslims were a multi-generational, abject failure. They worked against the seed of the Christian religion within the Muslim world itself, associating it with something foreign and “imperialist.” While the missionary enterprise in sub-Saharan Africa was more successful, little was achieved there, either. It was when Africans themselves took up the cause, that the Christian religion began to spread like wildfire: from less than a million to hundreds of millions in a few brief generations. And as Muslim loyalists decry, this wave keeps pushing northwards.

    I make this comparison because it explains so much. Muslims, as immigrant Africans in Europe and America, are unimpressed with Western religious and family life. How could they have any respect for us? We have mostly abandoned both. Yet those of spiritual calling are drawn to the very Christian religion that we have rejected. It provides answers to questions that are still asked; it replies to the very objections that Islamic propagandists circulate. The chief passage is through Our Lady, “Mariam,” who points not to the later Prophet of the Hejaz, but to her own divine Son.

    Oddly, a reader of Hilaire Belloc’s The Great Heresies (noted here) may see this by reading his arguments, backwards. For from its beginnings, Islam did actually provide an heretical parody of Judaeo-Christian beliefs. The more deeply spiritual one’s entry into Islam (through Sufism and other beleaguered strains), the closer one comes to the Christian depiction of an insuperable Divine Love.

    The Word travels home, person to person, from émigrés who escape the ghetto pressures abroad. Along with this goes the very Western idea of religious freedom. Men and women subtly pass from what is unthinkable to what is thinkable. There are consequences when that tipping point is reached. Too, there are consequences to the reverse immigration, where oil-rich countries such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, from which Christians were once excluded, fill with labourers from the Philippines and other Christian milieux. For just as the Arab presence in Europe is normalized, so is the Christian presence in Arabia. “This changes everything,” as our Leftists (the natural allies of the Islamists in their pathological hatred of Christian symbols) like to say. It leads to a curious host of paradoxes and semi-paradoxes:

    The future of Christianity is not European. We have perhaps forgotten that Christ did not rise in the West, but in the East; or for geographical punctilio, at the interchange of the three vast continents of the Old World. Arabs, as all Africans and Asians, are capable of noticing this.

    Moreover, the future of Christianity, within “The West,” is also not European.

    It will prove too “traditional” for that. For the appeal of a lukewarm, compromised, corrupted, “progressive” and “secularized” Christianity — to sincere Christian converts — is zero.

    Rev. Archibald and Disembodied Entity:

    Working among chicks is about to become an impossibile situation for regular dudes.

    Oh true.

    Once the Protected Classes really get rolling on ‘diversity’ and ‘quotas’ – straight males of a pale pallor and Anglo-Celtic ancestry will have zero chance of getting jobs in Big Government and Big Business

    ( Big Union I am not sure sure about ? I suspect the CFMEU will argue the Teachers Fed, nurses union and PSA is chock-a-block with wymenses, so it balances out the Men’s Shed that is the Federation and they get a ‘Get Out of Diversity Free’ pass. Or else. [ NADT] { Actually, it probably will be a DT } ).

    More to the point, Big Whatever will look for every excuse to ‘performance manage’ existing males out ASAP, to then re-stock with diversity quota winners.

    Other than the shittiest, most dangerous jobs – young men are about to find themselves pariahs in the workplace and older men will be threshed like wheat.

    Wait until Shorten and his harridans of the Left are let loose running the place.

    The way their Big Crony Banks do diversity for their performance indicators is the easy way.

    Shut down even profitable business branches in non urban areas that are staffed with long term loyal employees, that unfortunately reflect Australian demographics from before the two towers went down.

    Fire these people, hire diversity demographics for urban offices and their human resources get a bonus for hitting targets for diversity.

  214. Makka

    Ivan, the Warren article seems to assume an assimilation by moslems when they move to the west, whereby they become increasingly influenced by western Christian values. That is not so. Moslems congregate in their suburban ghettos and enclaves. They sponge off western goodwill by becoming parasites in our welfare systems- systems that originally were established and made functional by Christian ethics of charity and compassion. They remain wedded to their vile Shariah law of social structures and there are a good many who want Christians dead or made slaves. Their main aim is to change the west into the shithole they left behind but to fleece their hosts while they go about it.

    Warren is not acknowledging reality.

    Yes, quoting myself, a selfie but I want to clarify this a little more for “Rae”

    The mechanic comes to my house, forces me (threatening legal/police action) to hand over the keys to my car to get fixed (which isn’t broken anyway), drives away and does whatever the hell he wants and then demands I pay him annually (30 June) for doing fuck all and making my car in a worse state than it originally was. That’s right Rae, it’s his car and his money. **sarc**

  220. notafan

    I don’t discount the doubling down by a significant percentage but there is definitely a steady stream of conversions too

    iirc aften the Beslan school siege virtually the entire local muslim population converted to Christianity

    It is after all the One True Faith

    why are millions of muslims becoming Christian

    The Appeal court also overturned findings that Mrs Scaffidi’s acceptance of accommodation expenses to attend conferences in cities such as London, Dubai, Seoul and Sydney were gifts, finding instead that “the conference organisers gained the benefit” of having Mrs Scaffidi, “prepare for, speak at (and) actively participate” in their event.

    As far as these workplace situations go these are what you need: documentation, witnesses, allies and the truth on your side. None of these things can be pulled out of your arse once the shit hits the fan. In the modern workplace you need to treat everyone as a potential threat and a liar.

    “But times have changed, and through “globalization” and mass emigration, especially to Europe, opportunities for defecting have grown. Along with this have come huge incentives for abandoning Islam. ”

    For sure some conversions are taking place. However when considering the rate of irregular moslem arrivals plus the fertility rate of moslems in the west I’d wager the conversions pale into insignificance.

    As I mentioned, extreme weather forecasts, or even just plain vanilla forecasts, her in Cbr/Qbyn have been wide of the mark for weeks.

It includes that cut and paste thing they use as filler about securing your outdoor furniture and so on. Apparently the apocalypse is due late this afternnon.
