    Strange that the only people in the world of theatre being lewd and putting the hard word on fellow performers, are heterosexual males. Strange indeed

    Correction, it was “Happy New Year”. As you do.

    Me. I care. It’s good to know stuff that matters.

    My bad, hey, deflecting the limelight from your self important self.

    West Europeans? So Bob Carr is saying East Europeans don’t feel the same way? Why could that be? Hmmm.

    Stephen Hawking’s body double picked his words carefully.

    Trump’s Immigration Remarks Outrage Many, but Others Quietly Agree

    The Czech president has called Muslim immigrants criminals. The head of Poland’s governing party has said refugees are riddled with disease. The leader of Hungary has described migrants as a poison.

    Having themselves recently crawled out of the Soviet-era shithouse, these guys are strangely reluctant to follow the West European rush for the S-bend.

    Eastern European men still have something to fight for: their women have not turned into fat careerist blue-hairs

    Abbott won because the RGR liars were unelectable, not because of a peaceful march barely acknowledged by anyone.

    I agree as that being the main reason Abbott won.
    A house brick would have won against them.
    They were so on the nose even right wingers were protesting.

    But the peaceful convoy,( there was no march) was known about by millions of people, it had news coverage on all major stations and some of it was even positively presented (in the country stations)

    It spooked the Labor party who were in virtual shock that our side of politics were doing it, and it even caused flow on demonstrations from that because they said abusive things about protestors.
    Albo called it the convoy of incontinence and promptly got another demonstration at his office.

    This was all national news.
    I have my Kenworth and the convoy photographed and stories written in local papers along the way, and tv crews were at Griffith and were quite positive in their presentations.
    The gotcha interviews the ABC tried to do on me, one wanker from a station in Mt Gambier thinking he was going to be interviewing a dumb truckie redneck backfired.

    I made many mistakes as a convoy leader looking back, my biggest was when one of the main political journalists of the ABC at the time wanted to hop in the truck with me as we circled parliament house, but at that particular time, after the way the Canberra times and many other left wing papers and stations were bullshitting, I wasn’t in the mood.
    I regret that now.
    But considering what the ABC is, it would have just been shit on my passenger seat and they would have made up whatever they wanted anyway.

    That protest drove through country Australia so we weren’t relying on the urban media.

    It wasn’t the be all and end all of anything, but I do think it was worthwhile and I do think it had an effect.

    That’s a fair point.
    I suppose I was saying that if one of the crimes that Craig Mc was accused of was lewd jokes at a Male, given the demographics of the theatre world, I’m sure there are plenty of other cases ignored owing to the sexuality of both parties.

    Bob Carr, how many people are hopping on rafts and tractor tyres roped together in Florida, to get to Cuba?

    How many ever, in the entire history of the States?

  11. struth

    Surely we can deport Bob Carr.
    He hates the west, he should want to go.
    And to all lefties that feel the west is bad news, those with the Yassmin view of things, even if you are born here and whiter than white, Why are you still here?

    Gawd, if he was a queer, they would be homophobes for not going down when Craig asked.

  13. Oh come on

    Lots of ‘victims’

    Yes, you have to sort the wheat from the chaff. Some of the chaff the ABC is chucking out there is just pathetic. One bloke claimed he was ‘bullied’, accusing McLachlan of essentially acting like a diva once while backstage (gosh, imagine a prominent thespian acting like a diva. Unheard of!). The ‘victim’ felt he was owed an apology. It never came. Hence the accusation. So McLachlan is said to have been rude and high-handed and did not apologise for this. Cue the convulsions!

    This shit undermines the credibility of the more serious accusations – if I were one of these women making a claim of sexual assault, I’d be fucking pissed by these pathetic disgruntled #metoo poseurs trying to get in on the action.

  14. grumpyracisthomophobe

    Many western Europeans have never forgiven the US for liberating them from Nazi tyranny and keeping the Russians at bay.

    Odd people; they secretly long for a boot in the face.

    Germans have never forgiven the Allies for taking their precious Reich from them.

  15. John Constantine

    Their Chelsea Clinton married wealthy, but how much of the money the Clinton crime family looted from funds theoretically donated to help the world’s poorest people went to pay for her ten million dollar plus urban fortress in New York?.

    Who is the security guard protecting the place from? Mormons from Utah doing doorknocks?.

  16. Oh come on

    Yeah ok, so Moore should have gone with the usual cuck strategy of apologising and grovelling before the Left. That strategy has worked great for the conservatives for the last 60 years.

    No, the GOP should have distanced themselves from Moore when the allegations first arose and run hard with a write-in candidate. They probably would have won, too, given the disastrously low turn-out for Moore in this deep red state. If Mo Brooks had have run a high profile write in campaign backed by the GOP, he probably would have won. And voter fraud? Absolute crap. The only people pushing that are Moore and his half-witted campaign people.

  17. John Constantine

    House price apartheid.

    Chelsea Clinton’s ten million plus bought her a fortress apartment in a guarded, gated community.

    None of the proles get anywhere near her.

    Especially not the ones that got buggame percent of disaster relief funds after the Clinton’s took ninety odd percent handling fees.

  18. Oh come on

    Trump should come out and say something like:

    I didn’t say that some countries are shithole countries in the meeting – that’s a lie. However, I have a list here of countries that voted to condemn us in the UN General Assembly recently. So let me be clear. The following countries are shithole countries and their outrage doesn’t concern me even slightly: (he then reads out the list)

    Thank you for the comprehensive info. I have great admiration for your posts and attitude.

    Huge kudos to you and all the marchers. It was a great non-controlled experiment, better that it happened than not.

    But pacifist action against an armed uni-party government, a hostile media, as well as hostile commo-type bureaucracies and courts will achieve nothing. This metaphorical train has well-and-truly left the station, all too long ago.

    dick durbin at the confidential meeting with Trump has basically betrayed a confidence. None of the other senators at the meeting have supported him with their reactions ranging from avoiding the issue to outright denial it happened.

    But even if it happened it is irrelevant. What Trump is talking about is control of the US’s borders; he believes a country which can’t control it’s borders is not country. Durbin, who is a fervid supporter of Sanctuary cities, is basically a cog in the ongoing leftie fight against Trump’s border controls.

    All the shit which has occurred before, the lies about Trump’s ban, the 9th Circuit Judicial decisions lying about Trump’s intentions, invoking the 14th Amendment and general racism lies is wrapped up in this and since Trump has won in the SC the usual character assassination clicks in. In all this what has been overlooked is durbin’s connection with the Kate Steinle case. Kate was murdered by an illegal immigrant with a long history of being evicted from the US. He was not convicted of murder however due to the media and political campaign supporting him. But make no mistake, Kate’s blood is on this little creep, durbin’s hands. Watch:

    The Gaystream Media are drip feeding the Dolly Everett story. It’s taken 10 days to disclose that she was at boarding school in Warwick [Qld].

  44. Knuckle Dragger

    Zulu at 11.00,

    Re Val the African gang victim:

    Val has it right, and a little bit wrong.

    Right: When she says the Africans are ‘like the motorcycle boys’ she is correct in that both groups are organised with the common purpose of engaging in criminal enterprise.

    Wrong: The Africans are actually a far greater danger to the public at large. OMCGs are all crooks and dickheads and all belong in the bin or deported is possible. However, they generally operate a bit like the Mafia in that they target other criminal elements, and mostly other OMCG members. They do indeed drive around shooting and bashing people, but these people are also crooks and if you choose to life that life you accept the potential consequences.

    A parallel may be drawn with Steve Irwin. You choose to spend your life around dangerous and deadly animals and you take the risk of being stung, bitten and/or eaten.

    The Africans do not operate like that, and the Victorian people have not made that choice. Bikies do not smash their way into a ‘square’ home, tie up old women, smack them up and steal mobile phones and cash.

    This is the difference, and it’s a big one. Crooks of substance, Mafia types and OMCGs pose little or no threat to the average punter. Even that massive brawl on the GC a couple of years back, while terrifying to the normal people due to its public nature, was not aimed at the public but other bikies.

    You can indeed go out for dinner without being shot or beaten by the Comancheros. This is not the case with the Africans, who go out of their way to target people they see as defenceless and who run the other way when they bring knives to gunfights, as in the French footage posted earlier. Any full patch OMCG member caught beating up an innocent Val in her own home and pinching her stuff would be stripped of his colours, ejected from his club in bad standing, given a beating to within an inch of his life by the other members, potentially have his club tatts blowtorched off and only then being dragged before the nearest detective they can find. This is what happened to the Hudson moron who shot the stripper and a couple of a Good Samaritans in Melbourne a couple of years back.

    Ashton saying the Africans aren’t gangs because they’re not like bikies and don’t have constitutions is stupid. The public knows it and he should know it. Again, the Emperor and his New Clothes springs to mind.

  45. Knuckle Dragger

    And I hope Beevor’s Arnhem book gives Montgomery the solid kicking he rightfully deserves, dead or not.

    One of the few things Media-Mike Rann got right during the disaster of his premiership is that he acknowledged the “gang of 49” and the horrific crimes they were committing and eventually he got off his lefty butt to do something about it.

    Even so, this gang of aboriginal men and youths wreaked havoc in Adelaide between 2007 and 2010. Media-Mike’s crackdown was driven more by the upcoming election than by his commitment to community safety.

    And yes… Despite everything, (and with a little bit of numbers jiggling,) the Labor scum were returned to office.

    The “almost” was a sure sign he was making shit up.
    To Maggie’s credit she went for the juggler. I used to wonder why 60 Minutes didn’t bury that clip. Did Maggie have her own fillem of interviews? Or did 60 Minutes think it would show Maggie up as being arrogant and disrespectful to King George? I suspect the latter.

    Words fail me, honestly.

  55. Knuckle Dragger

    I must admit I’m not a fan of Montgomery. His crack about his beret being worth three divisions was priceless.

    From Beevor himself:

    ‘The usually tolerant Eisenhower refused to forgive Montgomery for the claims he made after the war. ‘First of all he’s a psychopath’, Eisenhower exploded in an interview in 1963. ‘Don’t forget that. He is such an egocentric that the man – everything he has done is perfect – has never made a mistake in his life.’

    Montgomery placed himself at the centre of the post-war storm mainly because of his preposterous assertions that everything had gone according to his master plan. He felt that he should be seen on a par with Marlborough and Wellington and implicitly denigrated his American colleagues. Almost single-handedly, he had managed in Normandy to make most senior American commanders anti-British at the very moment when British power was waning dramatically.’

    Not to mention his failure to ensure the closure of the Falaise Gap, which despite tremendous slaughter allowed a significant proportion of the German Seventh Army to escape and fight another day.

    It was necessary to remind him at that point that we were in the middle of a Maximum Security Facility full of shit heads. He thought that I should focus on how the sun was shining. It would be good to make a living with minimal KPI’s

    Indeed, a young girl was killed in the Milperra crossfire. Both gangs, idiots all decided to open up on each other in the middle of a swap meet. Those responsible were caught, convicted and either killed thmselves on remand or were given long sentences.

    My point is that the young girl’s death was not the intent of the bikies. They didn’t do it before and certainly haven’t done it since (this was in 1984 remember), as opposed to the African gangs whose only target is people who want to live normal lives. Think Federation Square, Moomba and countless other incidents over the years.

    Again – I’m certainly no apologist for bikie scum but that comparison is like saying there was a Buddhist attack on Sikhs in 1992, therefore Buddhists are the same as Islamist terrorists.

    are you suggesting all Africans behave like this?

    Who cares if it’s a few hundred. Why tf should Aussie citizens , old women, be fearful of being beat up at night in their homes by Africans ? Do Africans represent some kind of special value to us that can’t be found in other more civilised migrants?

    The 2 KEY issues here are ; 1) of what value is the immigrant to us – the taxpayer- who funds his immigration. 2) What risks to Australians are associated with the culture of the immigrant.

    I’d argue that Africans wouldn’t qualify on either count. If we need to import immigrants (we don’t!) we can find better sources than shitholes in Africa.

    Montgomery placed himself at the centre of the post-war storm mainly because of his preposterous assertions that everything had gone according to his master plan. He felt that he should be seen on a par with Marlborough and Wellington and implicitly denigrated his American colleagues.

    Master Plan? He was not supreme commander in North Africa or Europe. Alexander (a superb – and more modest – commander) was his boss in North Africa and Eisenhower was in Europe. Montgomery’s failed plans rather than just the El Alamein action deserve special examination to bring his reputation back to something more realistic.

    BorisG,

    No. I am suggesting, with a substantial evidence base and quite a bit of first hand knowledge behind me, that the African GANGS behave like this. They are substantial in number, entirely fearless and absolutely will not stop until they get what they’re after, or are put down by the only method they understand – brute force. In which case they will rely on the useful idiots at the Fitzroy and Kensington Legal Services to claim racism and compo.

    Their campaign of terror against normal law abiding people, including many other ethnicities, is just that. It is out of all proportion compared to their population base and if it’s not already too late (though I fear it is) it must be stamped out wherever it’s found.

    You are inferring that I claim all Africans are bad because some are. I do not say that, although if I had lived for a substantial amount of time in the Sudan I might on evidence make that claim.

    You may say that all Africans are good because there is an old Nana African in a high rise flat in Flemington who never leaves her own residence. That would be equally baseless.

    The number of Africans here who assimilate, recognise the strengths of this country and strive to make it a better place without sponging off it and the rest of us are sorely under-represented in that part of the population.

    That needs to change.

    Mississippi Burning killer dies in jail

    Deutsche Presse Agentur
    6:57PM January 13, 2018

    Edgar Ray Killen, the Ku Klux Klansman convicted of the notorious Freedom Summer killings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi in 1964, has died in prison.

    Killen, who would have turned 93 next week, died on Thursday night at the Mississippi State Penitentiary’s hospital, authorities said.

    His cause of death would be established in an autopsy but no foul play was suspected, they added.

    The former Klansman was serving a 60-year sentence for manslaughter over the deaths of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, who had been trying to sign up black voters when they were killed.

    The crime was the basis of the 1988 film Mississippi Burning starring Gene Hackman, Frances McDormand and Willem Dafoe.

    Killen was initially tried over the men’s deaths in 1967 but an all-white jury failed to convict him.

    The case was reopened in 1999 and Killen was charged with murder. He was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to three consecutive 20-year prison terms in 2005.

    African gang crisis: Community leaders warn ‘dangerously negative view’ could create more violence
    Alex White, Herald Sun
    20 minutes ago
    Subscriber only
    AFRICAN leaders have gathered in Melbourne to discuss how to tackle the youth crime wave and stop vilification of the community.

    Almost 30 people attended the meeting in a North Melbourne on Saturday, highlighting issues of high unemployment and family challenges.

    Many also raised concerns a small group of teens were creating a dangerously negative view of African Australians, which could lead to more violence.

    Organiser Clyde Sharady told the room there was some “bad behaviour among some members of the community” but warned politicians were using incidents for political gain.

    Victorian Multicultural Commissioner Dr Mimmie Watts said the African community was made up of 54 countries and cultural differences needed to be considered when deciding on plans to tackle the problem.

    She also highlighted the role of women in the community and said targeting mothers would be the key, as they had direct links to the rest of the family.

    She also said there was a “pocket of disengaged rascals,” but labelling them gangs was not helpful.

    Victoria Police community engagement Inspector Stephen Mutton said many issues were “not police issues, they are about the family challenges and how the children were educated”.

    He revealed police were actively working with the Department of Humans Services as well as trying to recruit African Australians to the force to represent their community.

    “We need to have more African Australians wearing the uniform, we have to have that,” he said.

  113. Makka

    Far from being the “cheeseeating surrender monkeys” the French were later were painted as, during the second half of the campaign – “Case Red’ , and the Germans had lost the element of surprise, the French were inflicting casualties on the Wehrmacht, at the same rate that the Germans had suffered during the worst weeks of the Battle of Passchendaele in July/ August 1917 (24 – 30,000 men every ten days.) The difference was that ‘ Case Red” only lasted three weeks, and Passchendaele went on for six months.

    Here’s an explanation from another site of why American cops don’t mess with Diversity if they can avoid it:
    If Constable D.D. McDonutface gives YT a ticket for not indicating, the ticket will be paid promptly and the State’s coffers will be enriched.
    If DD gives a Mexican a ticket, he won’t pay, and after much expense, he’ll serve some time to cancel the ticket.
    If a Black gets a ticket, not only won’t he pay, but because he’s unpredictable, he may start shooting for a good reason, or no reason at all.
    Therefore, the cops , and the State, prefer to: Get YT.

    We’ve had Princess Margaret and her Tony; she is still finding it hard to drop the Princess schtick.

    Catching up with my reading…

    Margaret had an annoying habit of dropping in on friends uninvited and unannounced, usually very late at night. She would expect them to entertain her for hours, and she expected servings of scrambled eggs, her favourite food.

    If the person she called on was already entertaining other friends, those poor buggers couldn’t excuse themselves and go home as they would be expected to stay there till Margaret decided that she wanted to go home.

    I bet none of that was mentioned in the Netflix series.

    The crimes they commit on a daily basis are most definitely a police issue. Therefore , they – the African gangbangers -are a police issue.

    Yes, indeed, and one which VicPol, along with the Labor gov’t & the judiciary, have spectacularly mismanaged and thereby exacerbated by their soft approach.

    But ultimate responsibility for this situation belongs with the politicians who, against all common sense, created the problem. Their first duty is to protect and serve the interests of our nation. FFS, then, withdraw from the UN Refugee Convention and conduct all aspects of our immigration program, including refugee intake, in our interests.

    This is exactly how it works back in Africa.

    Problem? What problem?

    “Over the last few weeks, it’s just really been hard the way the media has hammered the African community,” Victorian Multicultural Commissioner Dr Mimmie Watts told a community meeting in Melbourne on Saturday.

    Dr Watts, herself a migrant from Cameroon, made the comments a day after community leaders met police to discuss a newly announced African-Australian task force aimed at tackling youth crime.

    The issue is not a new one in Victoria but debate has intensified over the past two weeks with a series of high-profile incidents and pointed commentary from the federal government.

    People of African appearance have been linked to a spate of crimes, including riots, home invasions and armed robberies since early December.

    Dr Watts acknowledged there were “pockets of disengaged rascals” but objected to the term “gang”.

    “A gang is organised crime … we have a group of disengaged youths who are out there doing some of the wrong things,” she said.

    Rascals. I know of a rascal gang in PNG that held a white woman at machete point , with her 2 teen daughters, over a weekend while they got on the piss and raped them repeatedly. Come time to leave ,they hacked them to death dismembering them. The husband/father returned home to find the horror on the Monday. The only good rascal is a dead one.

    “A gang is organised crime … we have a group of disengaged youths who are out there doing some of the wrong things,” she said.

    Somebody alert Tim Blair. He has been documenting the disappearing of the word “gang” for the now official alternative, “group.” Now we have “pockets.” As in: ‘Hello, police? My house is under attack from a pocket! Send your best community leaders!’

    Let’s ask the Oxford dictionary:

    gang
    NOUN
    1An organized group of criminals.

    ‘a gang of bank robbers’
    as modifier ‘gang warfare’

    1.1 A group of young people involved in petty crime or violence.
    ‘three men were attacked by a gang of youths’
    ‘a street gang’

    And is Dr Watts aware that “rascal” is somewhat problematic?

    Briton murdered by South Pacific ‘raskols’.

    A British expatriate has been hacked to death in Papua New Guinea in a suspected attack by the South Pacific country’s notorious “raskol” criminals…

    violent armed criminals known in the local pidgin as raskols.

    While the word rascal conjures up the image of a naughty schoolboy, this represents something much more sinister. Gangs with names like Mafia and Ook (Devil) hold sway over large parts of the capital.

    Like Johannesburg, it is a city of razor wire, guard dogs and 24-hour rapid-response security patrols, with residents living in a state of siege.

    Oh! Ye of little faith.

    With my 15 year old lad this was a “Participatory Camping Safari.” First night in the Rift, and first participatory duty: surround campsite with thorn scrub and brush, ‘to keep out the animals.’
    En route to this minus five star rendezvous, truck slides of the track twice, dug out both times with help from Masai with garden tools. The Masai always seem to come from nowhere and congregate. On the descent into the Rift, we were told to get out and walk down, as elf ‘n’ safety were paramount. The precipitous track was in some disrepair, by way of understatement.
    A major delay soon followed when a wheel axle gave up the struggle. Repaired on site with a spare, while the Masai congregated and beheld. Not to be outdone, the steering rod was next, doing everything but. The bent and bowed item was removed, and belted remorselessly with the back of an axe until a semblance of horizontal was again achieved. Masai in attendance. Pretty much plain sailing after these minor delays. Following the usual struggle with canvas and poles, the first campsite on the Serengeti was in tip top shape for a night of repose under African skies. At about 3 am. the air was rent with an ensemble of pots, pans and kitchenware in furious percussion. The dreaded giraffes were encroaching, and with their silly, long legs they have a tendency to trip over guy ropes and bring the tents tumbling down. Had that happened it would have been minus 6 stars. Again on the Serengeti, with lions in polite exchanges not too far distant, we were advised NOT to visit the long drop during the night, which was situated many life threatening metres from the tents. There was no argument. And you never leave your shoes at the camp door overnight for the shoeshine boy. The hyenas will eat them.
    But there were highlights, and the ten star rating goes to the overnight camp on the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. Take an easy chair in front of your canvas suite, and watch the lions etc etc au natural. No fences and no panic buttons to the front desk.

    Top Ender’s Passage Through India

    The Indian Mutiny was characterised by a gradual but then sudden rise of Indian soldiers against the British rule in India. It was characterised by misunderstanding: many of the natives believed a rumour they would be forced to bite the ends of their cartridges which had been greased with pig fat. This was not true but believed anyway. When one mutineer named Pandy was executed others gradually rose in revolt. The ensuing mutiny took over a year to suppress, and was characterised by savage reprisals on both sides. Lucknow was the scene of a siege where the British were surrounded by Indian soldiers; nevertheless they defended themselves with vigour centred around the Residency, where were today. One grave I visited was that of Henry Lawrence, one of the chief defending officers.

    Sight of the Day. The 479 archways of the multistorey labyrinth in Lucknow Mosque. Couples of the opposite sex have to have a compulsory guide to prevent naughtiness in amongst the archways.

    OH&S spectacle of the day. Four cows placidly lying down in the middle of a four-lane road. No one moves them; no one shouts at them; everyone goes round them.

    Sad sight of the day. The number of graves in the Residency cemetery of Lucknow. They were all defenders against the Indian Mutiny. Not all British as might be expected. A large number of sepoys (native soldiers) stayed loyal to the Crown.

    Annoyance of the day. Bloody idiots driving down the wrong side of the motorway towards you. The death toll here from road accidents must be enormous. Just checked: “In India, more than 150,000 people are killed each year in traffic accidents. That’s about 400 fatalities a day…”

    Trump questions taking immigrants from ‘shithole countries’ -sources

    http://news.trust.org/item/20180112022611-rbq55

    WASHINGTON, Jan 11 (Reuters) – President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned why the United States would want to have immigrants from Haiti and African nations, referring to some as “shithole countries,” according to two sources familiar with the comments.

    Trump’s remarks, made in the White House, came as Democratic Senator Dick Durbin and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham briefed the president on a newly drafted immigration bill being touted by a bipartisan group of senators, according to the sources, who asked not to be identified.

    Other government officials were present during the conversation, the sources said.

    The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife.

    One of the sources who was briefed on the conversation said that Trump said, “Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They’re shithole countries … We should have more people from Norway.”

    The second source familiar with the conversation, said Trump, who has vowed to clamp down on illegal immigration, also questioned the need for Haitians in the United States.

    Many Democrats and some Republican lawmakers slammed the president for his remarks.

    Republican U.S. Representative Mia Love, a daughter of Haitian immigrants, said the comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values” and called on Trump to apologize to the American people and to the countries he denigrated.

    Another Republican Representative, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who was born in Cuba and whose south Florida district includes many Haitian immigrants, said: “Language like that shouldn’t be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn’t be heard in the White House.”

    Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said the president’s comment “smacks of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy.”

    In an apparent response to his critics, Trump took to Twitter late on Thursday night.

    “The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process,” he tweeted.

    “It is my duty to protect the lives and safety of all Americans. We must build a Great Wall, think Merit and end Lottery & Chain. USA!”

    There was a very good exhibition on the matter on the National Army Museum, in Chelsea, some time ago. It was all rumour – the issue cartridges would be treated with tallow, but the sepoys would be able to treat their cartridges with what ever they pleased. There was no requirement to bite the cartridges, as was the old loading drill, but the sepoys answer was that, in the heat of battle they might forget, and bite the cartridges.

    This is why I prefer a routine flogging from a shinai from old blokes when I do my sabbaticals, that become more frequent as I get older. At least I know I am asking for it. Being a Silver in the traditional world gives you some grace in dojo, and no indulgence with the cranky old guys

  231. Oh come on

    Zyco, you have got to be shitting me. There’s a whole damn thread devoted to that story. You’re about 18hrs late.

    And can’t you just post a link, FFS? Do you have to copy/paste the entire damn article?

  232. Oh come on

    Yesterday or the day before you posted an article that went on and on and on and on, zyco. Firstly, you could be breaching copyright laws by posting entire articles without permission. Secondly, it’s a bloody pain in the arse.

  233. overburdened

    Particularly more demanding that when I first went a graded person back in the day, before gaijin were accepted in a somewhat sympathetic way. No point in trying to discuss it with students. I gave no running open sessions 2 years ago so I have no currency. I think it’s now a grounding thing.

    ” “We need to have more African Australians wearing the uniform, we have to have that,” he said.

    They would be especially useful dealing with pyjama-clad white ladies reporting crimes at 3 in the morning.

    More blackfellas dressed as police in Melbourne?! Ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha (snork) beeyah ha ha ha ha ha ha (choke) heh heh heh – Lord, now me guts is hurting, gasp, splutter!

    It’s all over folks, the regular beltings of random victims will continue unabated but the State will have it fade into the background now – nothing to worry about any more. A few days of determined obfuscation has worked a treat.

    Chief Clerk of Police-Related-Activities Ashton’s newest best black friends got together and the first thing reported was “concerns a small group of teens were creating a dangerously negative view of African Australians, which could lead to more violence”. Soooo – white racists have reared their ugly heads yet again, provoking this new race known as “African Australian” (who are universally lovely) into visiting them at home and striking them a weeny little bit and borrowing their money and stuff.

    Some Chief Clerkette Police Ms came up with “the African community was made up of 54 countries” but forgot to add that this newly discovered “community” has spent centuries invading, slicing up, kidnapping, raping and thieving from fellow “community” members.

    She nonetheless deserves credit for being the first to utter the obligatory “was not helpful” (ie. labelling them gangs).

    I’ve noticed about six Senior Clerks of Police-Related-Activities trot out pearlers such as “”I do not accept for a minute that we do have gangs” (Crisp); “I’ve heard people say that Victoria is not a safe place to live. That’s complete and utter garbage,” (Ashton); “pocket of disengaged rascals” (Ms Dim Mimmie); “… it’s not a particular group of youths we are looking into. It’s all youths. It’s youth crime” (Ms Fitzgerald – one of her subordinate cops had just had his head kicked by a very black looking blackfella captured in living colour on a shopping centre video); “These young thugs … are not an organised crime group like … an outlaw motorcycle gang … but they’re behaving like street gangs, so let’s call them that” (Patton). That lasted just 24 hours after which they were downgraded by the Bureau to Category 2 “Groups” and later to Category 1 “Gatherings”.

    The latest clever trick is to encourage a National Conversation on the Nature of Crime in a Formal Context – I heard Ashton suggest the goons were not “gangs” because they do not have written constitutions, like bike gangs. They are just down from the trees for Pete’s sake, illiterate primitives! They can barely mumble their own names!

    The only stunt they didn’t pull was re-runs of Warnie’s wrong ‘un and something nostalgic from Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich.

    You will note who has been fronting all the press conferences. The lying coppers have become so adept at it that they don’t need any outside help.

  235. Oh come on

    You have to see the Drudge Report now. The first link on the page reads “TRUMP CALLS HAITI SHITHOLE” and above that there’s a photo of an incredibly disgusting garbage dump and a lake of what looks like sewage, presumably in Haiti, with a pig’s head in the centre of the shot.

    Drudge is a crafty bastard.

    Feds Raid California ‘Maternity Hotels’ for Birth Tourists
    Southern California apartment complexes that doubled as “maternity hotels” for Chinese women who want made-in-America babies were raided early Tuesday, capping an unprecedented federal sting operation, officials said.

    … pregnant women and new moms who allegedly forked over $40,000 to $80,000 to give birth in the United States.

    Ask the relatives of Justine Damond how they feel about the impact of community outreach on police hiring.

    That’s better, zyco. One or two paragraphs is enough.
