    I note Chief of Defence Force cleared LTCOL Dubsky almost 18 months before David Morrison finished as Chief of Army. 5 years ago, but we only only find out about his being cleared now.

    Seems like the hierarchy in ADF have been too busy covering up for Morrison’s reputation rather than be concerned about ruining the career of a LTCOL who had served his country well.

    Morrison’s only claim to fame is the speach he gave about the “standard you walk past”. Even that was mainly written by Cate McGregor.

    I hope any corporates will strongly reconsider any association with Morrison. How he even got to be Australian of the Year is a disgrace as the ADF covered up his treatment of the LTCOL whose career destruction was just a knotch on his belt to prove how tough he acted against the Jedi Council. The LTCOL did not even open the message or forward it yet his career was over.

    I guess we know the calibre of the top of the ADF. Let’s not forget the philandering Rear Admiral whose girlfriend gained rapid promotion.

    I hope the LTCOL received millions as he deserves it. Morrison is not fit to mix with members of the military and should be removed from Diversity Council and any other positions.

    Gavin McInnes made a sound analogy recently. It’s like the dumb just-turned-21yo [18 for our purposes] striking up a conversation with some homeless guy who stumbles into the bar. Thanks, great work, kid. Now there’s going to be a crazy person here for the rest of the night.

    Except in our case, it’s the weekend. And, like the goldfish in my kid’s fish tank, it’ll be sustained for a few days even after that by hoovering up its own shit for re-consumption, too.

    Honestly, just ignore.

    Late nights, smokey bars, Scotch whiskey and a franger in your wallet. You young roosters have no idea, none at all.

    Gold fish tend not to do that unless you, or you kid, fail to keep the tank clean. You, or your kid, should clean the gravel in the tank more often so the filter can work properly, and clean the stuff off the inside of the glass. Then your, your kids, goldfish will not have to eat its own shit and will live longer.

    Hey Arky
    The worst thing about those Ford’s was cranking the bloody things.
    If you didn’t watch out it would kick back on you.

    Did this starting an old donk which ran the shearing stand.
    Great old motor, but everything was heavy old steel.

    Another trap is to relax because you are giving up before another go and it fires and spins back.
    Actually chipped the shinbone on a nice heavy sharp edge.
    Made me sook for a little while, then go a bit green when I realized the white bit in the cut was a bone chip.

    I really detest virtue signalling musicians who denigrate the west while holding concerts that use everything only the west could offer from oodles of it’s power through to the technology of the instruments and amplifiers, transport systems etc etc.

    It actually doesn’t need to be a choice made.

    NSW Fire and Rescue crews copped a particularly smelly day at the office yesterday when a truck carrying tens of thousands of fish heads, blood and guts spilt on to New Line Rd in Dural.

    Royal Commission into the xunts.

    I do not believe they protect us at all.

    And now I see they are going to drag blokes in when the next time the useless Victorian Copper echelon will track a fuck head all the way in to Flinders Street and watch him kill people with his car.

    Fark off.

    There have been at least 2 criminal outbursts from muslim types on the corner of Flinders and Elizabeth Streets.

    Yet no gubmint has burnt down the mosque where they pulled each other nor burnt down the family homes nor ejected the foul fuck families out of Australia.

    Why? Because it’s Friday night … and just sometimes we need to remember what it has cost to have the life we have now.

    You don’t have to like the sound. However, the skill involved is immense.

    Keep track of both of the white markers on the vinyl, whilst he plays.

    Just watched the Drum.

    Big beat up on DL over his comments about Sarah two names. Naturally they missed the bit about why DL said he had responded as he did. Totally biased as usual.

    So the moral of the story is telling it to eat shit and die will not work. Demonstrably, it will not die from eating shit. It will eat shit and live. What’s more, it has eaten so much shit and lived that it has come to enjoy eating shit and is attracted by the prospect of eating more shit. So when you do whatever you think your worst is to it, you are giving it what it wants. Hell, it will happily – if inadvertently – soil itself and eat its own filth to get attention.

    So, it will eat shit and not die. But it can’t eat nothing and not die. Give it nothing.

    Another fun night of Catallaxy Sydney CBD Drinkies, hatching political plots and sharing expertise, Kittehs talking handbags and shoes when the guys did football. Tinta came looking all Parisienne in a diamante-studded beret, Cassie’s glasses were tres Francaise too and I wore my trench coat 1940’s Casablanca-style; all stars in our own movies. Riccardo in Camel Hair Overcoat kept the masculine sartorial elegance level as high as does Percy Popinjay himself. T-shirts also fine, especially if they carry the image of Jordan Peterson (one did). We (Hairy is an Honorary Cat, spouses do attend) will be lucky to make another before we leave these shores soon for three months but we’ll try. Space at the table still. Sydney Cats who’d like to be on the list to be informed re when and where, get my email or Percy Popinjay’s from Sinc. There is ten dollar parking in the Goulburn St Car Park after 5pm with good venues nearby.

    And so to bed.

    So when you do whatever you think your worst is to it, you are giving it what it wants.

    Yep. Just like those wretched black currawongs that next door feeds and who then come and digest on the branches above our entrance pathway, and poop everywhere on the new tiles. I quartered small apples to make missiles to throw at them today while Attapuss did his best growls, both of us hoping to scare them away. The team of them lapped it up. They ate the apple pieces and dive bombed Attapuss back inside.

    I am now going to use a gun on them. (A very large and fierce water pistol confiscated from the kids).

    Re the recent belated decision to cap Uni “HELP” debt amounts for career campus swamp dwellers: how the fuck has it taken 30 years for our dopey pollies to cauterise this theft of taxpayers $? At what point should a higher education minister have noticed this lurk and said enough? Birmingham’s a wet soft cock but I’ll at least credit him with noticing the gravy tsunami here.

    OWG, I think it would be waste of time to cite any sources as you would immediately dismiss it as shit.

    This is the problem with what’s perceived, south of the border, as Trump’s nnti-Mexican rhetoric. Increasingly, it looks like Mexico will elect a leftist as president in response. He doesn’t appear to be as extreme as the loons in Venezuela, but the risk is always there.

    The US better build that wall and quickly. If this guy screws up the place, the flow to the north will be enormous.

    Anti-GM advocate changes his mind and now would like everyone to know about it and how wonderful he is.

    Really, who gives a shit. He was wrong to start and thinks he deserves credit for changing his mind – that he was wrong. Fuck off.
