    Teen arrests after armed thugs try to rob store with meat cleaver
    What’s the bet they will be out on bail by tonight?

    And what’s more described of African-Australian appearance. FMD. Are they half castes
    or what?

  2. calli

    Meat cleavers aren’t really the Australian weapon of choice.

    Perhaps they were African Chinese.

    GM, perhaps they had southern cross tattoos ?

    The destruction of the value of the Pitcairn-Australian dollarpeso will effectively be a tax on all dollar trapped savings.

    Borrowing and spending can continue for quite some time, until the buffer of a buggered buck gives in.

    Fortunately their shorten New Rum Corps will be able to make welfare payments in rum and coke, the new currency. [ doubt if it will be the sugary fizzy dark stuff though.]

    From earlier today, just after Turnbull released the Solicitor-Generals qualified views on Duttons eligibility and then forced Dutton to produce 43 signatories:

    Clearly, Turnbull is a much better poker player than anyone else in this game so far.

    So, who didn’t get to be Prime Minister today? And who did get his own choice of successor elected as Prime Minister?*

    Turnbull proved himself a masterly poker player.

    [* That deal was done between Turnbull and Morrison yesterday, before the presser with Cormann]

    Cultural appropriation gone mad. Not visible from the Sudan. Perhaps should give them the benefit of the doubt and admire their fair dinkumness.

    Speech should be free as a bird, even the odious ones.

    The real question is, why does a bird that can fly free keep returning to it’s former cage?

    The answer, because it wants to free the other birds,
    of course.

    Panic selling flooding the market, and panic refusal to buy tainted meat creating a price crunch.

    Obviously, exporting as much as possible is the way out,

    A quick end to this is best for all, who needs the financial pyramid to topple for a few hundred million crook pigs?.

  15. Snoopy

    Obviously, exporting as much as possible is the way out,

    John is it possible that some Chicom pork could end up in Australia! Possibly routed through third countries?

  16. Roger

    Just some brief thoughts.

    Death duties and a wealth tax, in some form.

    Someone has to pay for all those country shoppers they’ll let in…and only the dead will have any money left!

    John is it possible that some Chicom pork could end up in Australia

    If the Chinese New Chums wandering around Colesworth filling their trolleys with baby formula suddenly start shunning local pork and insisting on meat imported from – I don’t know, the US ? – the plague is upon us.

    Two days ago, @PARISDENNARD, a black Trump supporter, was praised by the president. Today, he is trending across the media as he was just fired from @CNN for sexual assault allegations from 2014.

    Read this morning that meat which is “off” is selling well in Venezuela. Can’t remember where, so no link.

    There is no effect on human health from eating a pig that had the swine fever, not zoonotic.

    Activists smuggling an infected mass of swine feve pork pate into Australia jammed up their Ben Cousins could be able to free the factory farmed pigs of Australia by killing all of them.

    The Australian Editorial – Indonesian minorities in peril


    The powerless and the powerful each have a story to tell about the troubling trajectory of Islam in Indonesia. Yesterday we reported that a mother of four, Meiliana, had been given an 18-month prison sentence for complaining about the volume of local mosque announcements in her Sumatran town. And earlier this month Indonesia’s moderate leader Joko “Jokowi” Widodo announced a hardline Muslim cleric, Ma’ruf Amin, as his running mate for next year’s presidential elections. Both events reinforce the impression that Islamism is a force on the march in the world’s most populous Muslim nation, which is our near neighbour.

    Meiliana is a so-called “double minority”, being ethnic Chinese and Buddhist. In May, jihadist suicide bombers targeted Christian churches in Surabaya. That same month the Ahmadi Muslim community in Lombok once again came under violent attack; it is accused of failing to acknowledge Mohammed as the final prophet. Too often, authorities are unable or unwilling to stop the violence against minorities.Sometimes those punished more heavily are the victims, just as Meiliana was blamed for Muslim riots that destroyed her house and more than a dozen Buddhist temples. Indonesian minorities ask themselves if it is safe to espouse anything other than a strident Sunni Islam.

    In 2012 Jokowi, a Javanese Muslim, won election as Jakarta’s governor with a double minority candidate — Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, known simply by his Hakka Chinese nickname Ahok — as his deputy. Ahok could be abrasive but he and Jokowi ran the city with refreshing honesty and efficiency. After Jokowi won office as President in 2014, it was unsurprising that Ahok should go on to seek election as Jakarta’s governor in his own right. In September 2016, he made a tactically unwise remark about political misuse of Islam and his own candidacy as a non-Muslim. Sure enough, his remark was seized on as a slight against the Koran, with assistance from a doctored YouTube video of Ahok’s commentary. Protests “in defence of Islam” filled Jakarta’s streets with as many as 500,000 people. Amin used his influence to push for a blasphemy case against Ahok. And Prabowo Subianto, the controversial former special forces commander defeated by Jokowi in 2014, was believed to be a key figure behind this mobilisation of Muslim rage. Anies Baswedan, the candidate of Prabowo’s party, Gerindra, won last year’s elections for governor and Ahok was sent to prison for blasphemy.

    Now Prabowo and Jokowi are to face off, for the second time, in next year’s presidential race. Jokowi has recruited Amin supposedly to quell complaints he is “not Islamic enough” and to counter Prabowo’s own strong links to Islamic clerics. Some analysts downplay concerns about the rise of Islamism in elections by pointing out its manipulation by politicians who are not themselves zealots. But their bad faith does not alter the fact Indonesia is becoming a less moderate Muslim nation, thanks in part to politics. And while it is true that Islamic political parties have a history of not doing very well in Indonesia, this may change. The dangers should not be overstated but neither should they be ignored. We have a vital interest in a stable, prosperous and pluralist Indonesia.

    ‘It was an old-fashioned orgy’: Police academy recruits are SACKED for extra-curricular ‘misconduct’ after a wild sex party

    A number of Victorian Police recruits have resigned after an orgy was exposed
    The orgy had reportedly happened off campus and while recruits were off duty
    However after hearing bragging another recruit reported it to their superiors

    Daily Mail. Seems some Victorian coppers may not be as indoctrinated as their superiors would wish.

    Roger let’s stop pretending the debt is because of country shoppers.

    No doubt we shouldn’t give 15 bn to people who are just immigrants and not citizens, but that is 15 bn a year, we have total public debt near 1050 bn, GDP around 1650 and on current interest (bond) rates, this debt becomes unsustainable at around 110% of GDP, assuming 3% real growth each year.

  29. .

    How can you sack adults for what they do legally in their private lives with other consenting adults?

    What a Turnbullian rule.

    Roger let’s stop pretending the debt is because of country shoppers.

    Permit me a little rhetorical flourish on a day like today, dot.

  31. .

    I have nothing against the concern of giving 15 bn away like that but we’re dangerously close to becoming like Greece.

    A few more years of ALP-GRN coalition governments and spineless, unprincipled “conservatives” will ruin us.

    This is no laughing matter.

    Friday night isn’t what it used to be. The thread generally got trashed in anticipation of a new beginning on Saturday. We have about three hours to burn it to the ground. Possibly longer if Sinc is in Malcolm’s arms having a cuddle and a cry. Like Pickles, everyone needs a snuggle bunny.

    Trite but true.

    We have a spendthrift government, whichever party holds office.

    It’s been a beautiful sunny day down here and earlier on I went up the road to do some shopping and I passed by 2 units where a whole bunch of African men live. The units are on a corner so I always have to slow down to turn right there and no matter what time of day or night I go past, there there are always several cars in the driveways and out front and sometimes one or two men loitering either at the door or next to a car patked on the street. Toda as I was approaching the corner a woman left one of the units and crossed the street in front of me. She was white and she had black face on. I kid you not she had black makeup like a mask except for two circles around the eyes and one around the mouth and I think there may have been some flitter on her cheeks. She walked across the street and got into a car parked on that side. I nearly over shot the corner because I was looking in my rearview mirror to double check what I saw and as I turned the corner I also saw one of the African dudes from one unit walk across to the door of the other. I have no idea what to make of it. I’m just going to guess that she was a prostitute. It’s that sort of neighbourhood. It was just bizarre.

    You know, it may be embarrassing for you, but you are amongst friends here, as you know.

    Oh Sinc!. AFL? Ok, it’s a great game. Agreed. However, there is a foreign game on tomorrow that Arky and I share an interest in. We are currently sharing a sheep (no pun intended). It’s his turn to cuddle it tomorrow night. I did last week and I’m somewhat shagged.

    A lesson on how to say ‘hey bro’ in kiwi. Sound out ‘hebrew’ and you have it. 🙃

    To be honest, it’s a scary time when the farmers who usually drive trucks only to their local silo, get in and go for a big trip delivering hay.

    Skinny roads, high lips on the road and many are just not that seasoned at it.
    Something long time road veterans take into consideration, dealing with them.

    Hay catching fire is usually due to a brake or bearing going, even a tyre Blow out or with some hay, getting wet.
    You have got to keep your eye on things.

    Chris Kenny has been trying to talk up Morrison as having conservative credentials (hence able to get the base back) because he stopped the boats. No, that was all planned in opposition with Abbott leading. Abbott is also the one who has sold that policy overseas. Since then Morrison has raised taxes, taxed super and even resisted a Royal Commission on the banks because he had a big stick (like the one he will use on the electricity providers). Tee hee. The Libs are dead.

    Conroy reminds that Turnbull’s tactics were similar to Labor in 2003 when Crean lost the numbers and Beazely tried to roll him. Crean went to ground for 24 hours and maneuvered for Latham to win.

    None, I note the lefties on that twitter thread are very homophobic.
    Indeed very bigotty sexist homophobes describing Alan Jones.

    Their hypocrisy must be a lesson to all.
    Like Monty, arguing with someone who can never examine their own actions, is pointless.
    The exist because we pay for them.
    Who pays to contract cancer?
    Who pays a car driver to run over them in Melbourne singing praise to Allah?

    Just hanging around a pool on top of a steep cliff.

    This very good looking hyper vain woman wanted to get herself picced. She got her beta like boyfriend to take the pics while she displayed herself on the edge of an Infiniti pool. Obviously the pics were going straight into Instagram.

    The idiot couldn’t keep her balance and by a strike of luck fell in pool side. By my reckoning it was 50/50 and if she fell on the other side nothing would have saved her. Great looker though, but a complete idiot and far too vain. Frog or Italian .
