The happiest Christmas to you all

It’s been an incredible year. I’ll see you again on the other side of Christmas. Not the white Christmas I grew up with but who really needs snow.

    SKY’S Comrade Connell gave us his Christmas gift by allowing two leading members of the Fairfax commissariat Comrades Kenny and Coorey a 20 minute uninterrupted slag of the Liberals and Nationals.

    Might I suggest that SKY is more dangerous to the Coalition than ABC because most viewers-are impressed by the “unbiased” reporting from Speers,van Onselen ,Kristina etc because of the supposed “fair and balanced reporting” that once applied to SKY.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all

  15. struth

    Oh, I just said Merry Christmas to everyone on the open thread, but I’ll say it here in what appears to be the actual thread for saying it.

    Merry Christmas.
    Have a great time with your families.

  16. Peter Castieau

    I got a giggle out of that, thanks Steve and a Merry Christmas to you and all the Cats here.

  20. Mak Siccar

    Good to see some of the Yanks haven’t lost their sense of humour. Have a wonderful Christmas one and all, from the Mak Siccars.

  21. Tom

    Merry Christmas, Steve! I hope your blog book sells a squillion — brilliant idea. Where to begin? The past year has given us so much great stuff:

    1. Fake News.
    2. What difference does it make?
    3. Hitler discovers Trump is Hitler.


  22. Rusty of Qld

    Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all.
    Got the grand kids Economics for Infants, to be read at least once a week to them.

  23. Makka

    Merry Christmas Steve and to all the Cats.

    A very Merry Christmas to everyone on the Cat. I’ve learned something from every single one of you. Thanks for your relentless support of freedom and wide-ranging opinions on everything.

  25. JohnA

    A giggle of a video clip – thanks, Steve!

    And a Happy Channukah to you too!

  26. hzhousewife

    It has been a blessed year what with Trump, Milo and Jordan Petersen.
    And struth, with whom I almost always agree.
    And I miss dweezy, I hope he is OK.
    Merry Christmas to all at the Cat from our household to yours, may all travellers be safe.

  27. Howard Hill

    I’m with, Megan. A Truly learning experience from all here on this wonderful forum.

    Best wishes for Christmas and the the new year to all of you and your families.
    May we all get to witness the draining of many swamps in the coming year.

  28. RobK

    Merry Christmas to you all.

  29. Dr Fred Lenin

    Compliments of the season to all catpersons .PC version .
    Merry Christmas to you all ,that’s better. Nice Sensible greeting bit of tradition innit. ?

  30. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    And I miss dweezy, I hope he is OK.

    Yes, and Macbeth too. To absent friends – a toast. Merry Christmas.
    First G & T of the day for me. I have polished some silver spoons and peeled enough spuds for an army. I never want to see a stalk of broccoli again. I must say though that my carrots, reindeer specials from Woolies, are golden through and are cut into some very interesting hand-made chunky juliennes. I have a machine for doing that sort of thing but it is still in the box from last Christmas. I’ve done the complex mathematics for timing the turkey by weight and all now awaits implementation tomorrow when the helpers and supervisors arrive.

    Hairy has gone to prowl around Dan Murphy’s in Double Bay.
    I hope they let him out. Any new staff might mistake him for a walking logo. 🙂

    Merry Christmas and God bless you Steve, Sinc, Henry and the other contributors here!

  32. iamok

    Best wishes to all for a very merry Christmas. Stay safe.

  33. Biota

    Happy Christmas Steve and family. I really appreciate your posts. I’m around your age and share a lot of your fears and frustrations with the deterioration of honesty and logic.

  34. Nato

    merry Christmas. it really doesnt count as a day on my calendar without reading this web journal. God’s blessings on you all in 2018.

  35. Gary

    As this will be my first Christmas with one less son on this planet I would like thank all the cat’s for there opinions, you have been enlightening, entertaining, frustrating and cringe worthy but a much needed distraction for me.

    Merry Christmas

  36. Anne

    Gary, your son. May I offer my heartfelt sympathy to you and wish for you the courage and strength to bear the sorrow.

    From Browning

    I walked a mile with Pleasure;
    She chattered all the way.
    But left me none the wiser
    For all she had to say.
    I walked a mile with Sorrow
    And ne’er a word said she;
    But oh, the things
    I learned from her
    When Sorrow
    walked with me!

    -Robert Browning

  37. JC


    Stay strong dude and I/we will all try that extra mile to be more entertaining. Just ignore the riff raff as they can get under your skin at times.

  38. 132andBush


    So sad to hear that. All the best.

  39. Confused Old Misfit

    Mr. Kates,
    From a fellow ex patriot canuk – It may get hot here, but you don’t have to shovel it!

    Merry Christmas!

  40. Anne

    It may get hot here, but you don’t have to shovel it!

    This is the Cat, you do sometimes.

  41. Infidel Tiger

    God bless Gary. That is heart breaking mate.

  42. Biota

    Gary I feel your pain, it is now 17 years since we had the same experience. Soak up those memories. The feeling of loss never goes away but you do adapt to the new reality and can enjoy life again.

  43. Empire GTHO Phase III

    Merry Christmas to all the posters, commentators and lurkers of The Cat – the greatest blog on Earth.

    Gary – special best wishes to you. Hang tough, brother.

    And the poem with Ben Garrison’s 12 Days of Christmas

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in the White House
    Trump’s words were stirring; Obama felt like a mouse.

    A populist president with a broom that swept clean,
    Trump accomplished much in 2017.

    Yet out past the lawn there arose such a clatter,
    Pussy Hatters were yelling along with Black Lives Matter.

    The Deep State pushed back—the Swamp became bitter,
    They always get triggered when Trump is on Twitter.

    Fake News Media compared Trump with Nixon,
    “Impeach him!” said Maddow, Mika and Wolf Blitzen.

    Rich kneelers were kneeling and sitting on hands,
    Stadiums were emptied, they angered their fans.

    Rocket Man’s missiles were threatening Seoul,
    Kim Jong-Un’s stocking was soon stuffed with coal.

    Respect, fame and fortune many women were hoping,
    Instead they were molested–the gropers were groping!

    Crooked Hillary lied about Trump’s Russian collusion,
    The evidence showed it was just an illusion.

    The Ass Clowns were angry and showing no poise,
    They were loud and obnoxious–empty barrels of noise.

    Trump’s eyes twinkled with MAGA delight. He yelled,

    –Merry Christmas from Ben and Tina Garrison

    Thanks for your insights and articles throughout the year. Merry Christmas Steve, hope you’ve had a day of love and laughter and good times with the people you love. Blessings of the season and here’s hoping for the best in 2018.

  46. Phil

    As JC has often expounded, Trump is God. A very Merry Christmas to all cats from a long time lurker. The cat is a remarkable site that I have passed on to many like minded friends. Thank you very much Mr Kates.
