    Your true Lefty normally has never had to meet a wages bill, or pay the accounts, or draw up an operating budget.

    Nor do they realise that with all the constricting regulations, it costs an employer around 2.5 times the actual wage throughout the employee’s working life.

    Men corroded the institution of marriage by using it as a weapon to dominate their wives, physically and emotionally.

    Yeah, maybe in the trial of Queen Caroline. Nearly 200 years ago.

    You know the UK has fault based divorced still? There is value in having both decree nisi and absolute. If they pertain to damages.

    Just beginning ……………

    The Saltbush Club is an unplanned venture. Tapping a deep vein of public concern about the Paris climate agreement, it just grew. In about a month, with zero corporate or government support, a few lone individuals have attracted an imposing line-up of sensible people who are well informed on all aspects of the climate debate, and on the growing energy, water and infrastructure problems facing Australia. Many are only prepared to publicise their concern since they have been freed from corporate, academic or government restraints. They are now expressing long-held but often-suppressed opinions.

    Welfare has reduced the incentives to maintain families and form them in the first place by substituting the government for the economic benefits that come with a live-in spouse. One particularly good example of this is the Seattle-Denver Income Maintenance Experiment. As John C. Goodman notes “Divorce increased 36% more among whites and 42% more among blacks. (In a New Jersey experiment, the divorce rate was 84% higher among Hispanics.)”

    There it is in a nutshell.

    According to Monty this is babble.

    It is clear as crystal to me that these ladies’ husbands are no longer around. They are working as checkout chicks in their late middle age because they have to. These ladies are not your so called ‘upper class’ or ‘middle class’ women. They have no choice to enjoy their grandkids, because they have no family, or the family has dispersed with the failing of the marriage.

    Identity the babble, Monty.

    M0nty wants to empower women to go to work when he doesn’t need them at home then empower them to stay at home and raise his kids when he wants them to do that.

    M0nty is empowering the little ladies in his life to do whatever he tells them they can.

    This is how the retard bugmaneoisie fit the their straight from the 1850‘s straight laced ultra Conservative homes and families into the cracks of the absolute cultural tip that they’re forced to navigate through.

    “Patriarchy Bad!” (it’s ok wife I’m empowering you to staying at home with the kids)

    Men corroded the institution of marriage by using it as a weapon to dominate their wives, physically and emotionally. No-fault divorce gave women a much-needed way to escape.

    Somebody posted this earlier today:
    Sweden is apparently full of ‘latte dads’ carrying toddlers — and it’s a sign of critical social change.

    Forget “ladies who lunch.” In Sweden there are “latte dads.”

    In an NBC News article profiling American dads who move to Sweden to live in a different parenting culture, authors Alexander Smith and Vladimir Banic write that it has become so common for new fathers to take parental leave that it’s largely frowned upon if you don’t.

    The result, the authors write, is that “Areas of Stockholm are now rife with ‘latte dads’ – typically youngish, bearded men carrying their babies in slings or hanging out with their toddlers.”

    […]

    And a 2014 article from Australia’s SBS profiles Andrew Gillard, an Australian living in Sweden. He says the latte dad, or latte pappa, is a common sight. “You probably wouldn’t see the same thing happening in Australia,” he told SBS. “You’ve got four or five guys all around 30 years old pushing a pram, going into a cafe, and having a latte.”

    My father never attended a birth and never pushed a pram. Nor did any of the other men I knew growing up. I feel sorry for the children being ‘brought up’ by these semi-gay beta cream puffs. They will never know the love and wisdom of real men.

    Imagine being so fragile in your position in society and class that you have to say, for instance, that you agree that deeply mentally ill men acting out a sexual fetish should be legally able to enter the girls change rooms at the local pool. You must agree with this loudly and wholehearteldy or else you’ll be cast out into the outer suburb bogan wilderness. Despite being internally horrified at the idea, despite having wife and little girls, etc you simply know that in order to continue to keep your position in this society that you.must.agree.

    It’s a worse class system than the Victorians had, even they weren’t that ruthless.

    No fault divorce was introduced by Lionel Murphy.

    Still, it is possible that his ex saw this as a much needed escape from an appalling individual. He was a Labor Party member after all.

    How’s that empowerment! been working out for women?

    The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness
    By many objective measures the lives of women in the United States have improved over the past 35 years, yet we show that measures of subjective well-being indicate that women’s happiness has declined both absolutely and relative to men. The paradox of women’s declining relative well-being is found across various datasets, measures of subjective well-being, and is pervasive across demographic groups and industrialized countries. Relative declines in female happiness have eroded a gender gap in happiness in which women in the 1970s typically reported higher subjective well-being than did men. These declines have continued and a new gender gap is emerging — one with higher subjective well-being for men.

    Oh.

    People were talking about the war on the SAS earlier, the need to crush the last muscular force left in Australia.

    But that won’t work. So instead the bugmen have decided to create their own hollywood style “SAS”.

    I present to you the bugman counter force:

    “Officers from the highly covert Australian Secret Intelligence Service could soon be permitted to shoot enemies who pose a risk to other people involved in their overseas undercover operations.”

    How do we know that this is the deliberate creation of a counter-SAS force that the bugman classes fully approve of?

    The ABC gives it away by dropping this seemingly completely random lonely sentence into the very bottom of its story on the matter:

    In 2014 the ABC revealed an Australian special forces soldier had pulled a handgun on an ASIS spy during a drinking session in Afghanistan a year earlier.

    Who was that “spy”? Let’s find out…

    The Australian special forces soldier who pulled a handgun on a female spy last year in Afghanistan apparently intended it as a threat.

    Now we understand.

    Teenagers are by nature the most conservative and reactionary cohort.
    They reflect the attitudes of their culture and absolutely pummel anything counter the prevailing norms.
    Think of how teenage boys used to tease each other.
    Well now they no longer taunt each other with the old prejudices.

    Bono is evil by Owen Benjamin

    I listened to this while I was doing other things. It’s quite rambling and disjointed, but it is effective – I now consider Bono to be creepier than I did before I listened to it. Shorter Owen Benjamin:

    This all came about at a critical time in history.
    The early 2000s.
    Baby boomers had made up the vast majority of a very stable teacher workforce.
    They were in their late forties/ fifties, about to retire on very generous super schemes after teaching for decades.
    In short, they weren’t really giving a shit about anything.
    The universities, which in the nineties had been in a slight conservative backlash against the first wave of political correctness, now would swing back hard progressive, in particular in arts and education.
    The sudden retirement of so many boomers opened up a huge opportunity for changing education.
    Those in a position to do so were the progressive lefty academics and the various state labor governments.
    A rehash of the old 1970’s open classrooms was done. This time they would ensure it could not be undone. It would be built into the architecture of the new schools to be built across the country.
    At the same time the curriculum would be completely rewritten by staff within schools to a rigid framework requiring the inclusion of certain politically slanted content.

  72. P

    You are kidding yourself.

    No Arky. I have only related to you what I have most recently experienced.

    I am, as you are, horrified by what is being taught.
    All my grandchildren attend Catholic schools but this does in no way make them immune to teachings with which I disagree. Yet these kids appear to be thinking for themselves, so I do not believe I am kidding anyone.

    I now truly believe there is hope for the future in our young people.
    I’m sure that whatever you have passed on to your students will in the future bring forth good fruit. They will not forget what they have learned from you.

    NT parliament passes new gender laws

    Labor has been accused of using the cover of federal gay marriage and sex-discrimination legislation to rush through sweeping changes to Northern Territory gender laws without allowing proper public consultation.

    The Births, Deaths and Marriage­s Registration and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2018 passed parliament tonight after only 30 days of committee scrutiny and two days of public hearings.

    The changes remove the requirement for people to have undergone sexual reassignment surgery to change their sex and allow for the registration of a change of “sex or gender identity” rather than a change of sex only.

    Once the changes become law, babies born in the Territory will be able to be registered to one of a number of gender categories, ­including “undefined”, and ­people will no longer have to be unmarrie­d to undergo an official sex change.

    Outspoken Labor backbench­er Sandra Nelson, who sits on the social policy scrutiny committee which reviewed the bill, ridiculed further debate as “wasting time arguing points of ideology”.

    “We had trans and intersex people represented in those hearings and instead of allowing them to educate us, we wasted their time with ridiculous arguments about girls’ schools and prisons,” Ms Nelson said.

    “To suggest someone should have to carry around their original birth certificate and a separate certificate to indicate sex or gender change is asking ­people to advertise things that are not anybody’s business but their own.

    “You are asking people to ­actively contribute to their own oppressio­n.”

    She praised Tasmania’s opt-in gender laws.

    “The beautiful thing about opt-in is that you can, in fact, opt in. Nobody is stealing anyone’s rights. An army of gender­less children is not about to sweep the country,” she said.

    Paying for the sins of the son?

    Nicolas Cage Paying Child Support for His Grandchildren in Son’s Turbulent Divorce

    Nicolas Cage is taking care of responsibilities as both a father and grandfather, because he’s financially helping his son cover child support payments after a nasty breakup.

    According to documents, obtained by The Blast, the “National Treasure” star’s son, Weston, settled his ongoing divorce with his estranged wife, Danielle.

    Weston and Danielle have two children, 4-year-old Lucian and 2-year-old Sorin, and while Danielle has been given sole legal and primary physical custody of the kids, Weston has been allowed visitation.

    As part of the settlement, Weston had been ordered to pay $8,000 per month in family support, which is half of a $16,000 “monthly gift” he receives from his father, Nic. The family support consisted of helping out with car payments, rent and health insurance for his estranged wife and the two children.

    The Australian special forces soldier who pulled a handgun on a female spy last year in Afghanistan apparently intended it as a threat.

    How many times in a century of wars has a drunken digger waved a gun around do you reckon?

    Only now this is considered not only newsworthy, but newsworthy for literally years by the gay-arsed media and for all I know is probably still being investigated by Australia’s Mueller – the Brereton enquiry.

    Comments about John Gorton led me to his Wikipedia entry where I found this:

    This one’s for Top Ender. Reading an account of the Pacific War, from Leyte Gulf to Tokyo Bay – “Tidal Wave” by Thomas McKelvy Cleaver.

    It seems that, after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, an American pilot, who had been shot down, was subjected to the most excruciating torture, about what he knew about the new bomb. Obviously he knew nothing, but he told his interrogators that “Our scientist have found a way to split the atom, they put all the pluses in one box, and all the minuses in another box, and the damage is done when the two fuse together. Oh, by the way, we’ve got another hundred of these bombs, Tokyo and Kyoto are next.” It would seem he survived..

    I have compassion for those who are not as lucky as we are. Do you?

    Those who feel the need to tell everyone they are compassionate, seldom are in real life, Monty, to quote a phrase.
    Compassion is not achieved by wrecking the west, as your side wishes.

    By the way, I did not state that I was a hard man, but like Notafan you read what you want to think is written and not what actually is.

    Now for fuck sake, turtlehead, stop commenting about the 1950’s as if you have the faintest idea of what you are talking about.

    Women didn’t mind staying at home because work in those days in many industries was physically hard with long hours and needed strong , fit men.
    Men who’s lives were often shortened by the severity of their work through their lives.
    They weren’t sitting around being served by their women, while they did nothing you despicable toad.
    Why don’t you look up the welfare benefits people got in those days?
    A successful time for the west, with bugger all welfare.
    No wonder your brainwashing leaders told you to hate that period of time.
    It was a matter of pure practicality and necessity to become a successful, non starving culture to work, to have the woman stay at home, as there was a lot more to do around the house as well.
    The effort of those generations and their practicality in their social organisation allowed for the wealth the country is now squandering thanks to you and your socialist , fuckhead mates.

    Gorton, when Prime Minister, is supposed to “have lunched well” before taking a VIP aircraft to wherever. He leaned forward in his seat, and copiously vomited in all directions.

    Recovering quickly, he remarked to the stewardess “I’ll bet you are surprised to see an old Air Force hand, like me, still gets airsick.”

    Trump won 2016 on a narrow number of votes in a handful of states, on a very astute reading of issues. That window has closed. Millions of new voters enter the rolls every two years, and millions leave. The changes are all going the democrats way. Irreversably now.

    “Eventually they wheeled him back to Tullamarine and poured him onto the plane which was to take him back to Canberra. Sensibly he decided to take a refreshing nap, but when he was woken by the thrumming of the engines some time later he felt decidedly queasy: so much so that he leaned into the aisle and threw up. A stewardess came to clear up the debris and Jolly John thought he had better make the best of it. `Well’, he said, switching on all his charm, `I suppose you’re surprised that an old RAAF man like me still gets airsick occasionally?’ To which the stewardess replied: `Well yes, sir, I am actually, because the plane hasn’t taken off yet.”‘

He says he (Cohen) was still waffling about numerous things that never came to pass after the Iowa caucus and, at the same time, saying he hadn’t even been to Moscow.

  144. zyconoclast

    Rome (AFP) – Italy on Wednesday adopted far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s tough anti-migrant and security decree, despite fierce criticism from the left.

    As well as loosening the criteria to expel migrants, the bill allows migrants to be stripped of Italian citizenship if convicted of terrorism.

    The government opted for confidence votes to get the bill through both chamber of parliament after M5S members tabled a slew of amendments.

    The decree also ends two-year “humanitarian protection” residency permits — a lower level of asylum status based on Italian rather than international law — that were awarded to 25 percent of asylum seekers last year.

    Instead, residency permits will be awarded under stricter conditions such as a one-year “special protection” status or a six-month “natural disaster in country of origin” status.

    A new procedure to fast-track the expulsion of “dangerous” asylum seekers will also be implemented.

    The Italian Refugee Council has said it is “seriously concerned” by the new law.

    The United Nations refugee agency has said it does “not provide adequate guarantees, especially for the vulnerable or those with particular needs such as victims of abuse or torture”.

    How a future Trump Cabinet member, Alexander Acosta, gave a serial s3x abuser, Jeffrey Epstein, the deal of a lifetime

    Facing a 53-page federal indictment, Epstein could have ended up in federal prison for the rest of his life.

    But on the morning of the breakfast meeting, a deal was struck — an extraordinary plea agreement that would conceal the full extent of Epstein’s crimes and the number of people involved.

    Not only would Epstein serve just 13 months in the county jail, but the deal — called a non-prosecution agreement — essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe into whether there were more victims and other powerful people who took part in Epstein’s sex crimes, according to a Miami Herald examination of thousands of emails, court documents and FBI records.

    The pact required Epstein to plead guilty to two prostitution charges in state court. Epstein and four of his accomplices named in the agreement received immunity from all federal criminal charges. But even more unusual, the deal included wording that granted immunity to “any potential co-conspirators’’ who were also involved in Epstein’s crimes. These accomplices or participants were not identified in the agreement, leaving it open to interpretation whether it possibly referred to other influential people who were having sex with underage girls at Epstein’s various homes or on his plane.

    As part of the arrangement, Acosta agreed, despite a federal law to the contrary, that the deal would be kept from the victims. As a result, the non-prosecution agreement was sealed until after it was approved by the judge, thereby averting any chance that the girls — or anyone else — might show up in court and try to derail it.

    In teaching it was sold to teachers, by unions, as a way to secure our jobs. To keep unqualified people out of classrooms.
    To tradies it is sold as a way to keep their wages up.
    Whatever the vocation the implementation follows the same path:
    People drawn from the industry elected to a board.

    A new YouGov poll asked more than 1,000 people aged 14 and up about their knowledge of the country’s history and institutions, and their patriotic feelings toward the U.S. The nationwide survey, sponsored by the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, produced some alarming results.

    Basically, it found younger generations — millennials (age 22-27) and Gen Z (age 14-21) — are less likely to love and respect the country. And they’re less informed about American history, and way more likely to embrace socialism. Is that just evidence of youthful ignorance? Or is it the result of a school system that indoctrinates children in leftist ideology?

    At the same time schools are filling kids’ heads with leftist propaganda, they’re failing to teach young people much about U.S. history.

    The survey found that 87% of high school students flunked a five-question test of basic knowledge about American history, the worst of any age group.

    High school students were also least likely to know who is on Mount Rushmore. Only 35% of them got it right, compared with 71% of boomers. Only 11% could name the rights enumerated in the First Amendment. And more than half of today’s high schoolers believe Barack Obama was a more consequential president than George Washington.

    Lots of interesting poll data.

    You assume you know about the 1950s because you watched an episode of Happy Days once.

    For the progressives, the 1950’s represent conservatives.

    Even now, when they wish to ridicule conservatives they talk about white picket fences and such. Perhaps because they see it as the last decade that belonged to conservatives before the 1960’s, which they see as theirs.

    Their understanding of that decade, like any other time in history, is profoundly flawed because they can only imagine it with themselves in it, and see it as compared to the present.

    In their view the 1950’s were hell because the were acutely aware that they didn’t have iPhones, gene therapy, only a few people could fly overseas.

    By the same token, our lives are hell because we don’t have things we never thought of having but which will come into existence at some time in the future.

    There is a quote I like, by whom I cannot recall, along the lines of “It is easy to forget that any moment, however far in the past, was at one time in the future.”

    Progressives can’t see that. They see history as a gigantic structure, and any part is the same whether looked at from above or below, connects to the same other parts, and is fixed and unmoving. People don’t count.

    Except where they are. Progressives always think their present is dynamic and where the future is being made. And they are totally convinced that they count.

    Well it would certainly force Dimocrats to nail their trousers to the mast (as Sir Humphrey Appleby would put it).

    I expect the Dimocrat base to fall into three categories: The Dead, the lunatic left, and ordinary soft left voters who really believe a left-ish tinge to America (as opposed to a deep socialist red) is desirable.

    The Dead don’t matter. The Dimocrats can count on their vote no matter what they do.

    But this might be a bit of a wedge between the soft left and the hard left. Open borders is not a long time (open) Dimocrat policy. Fears of the uncontrolled immigration on jobs and crime, and a certain pride in being American, are far more entrenched than Ocassional-Cortex or Maxine Waters’ explosive intellectual suppurations.

    None Dare Call It Treason 50 Years Later

    by Cliff Kincaid on December 28, 2014
    I recently asked John A. Stormer, author of the 1964 bestseller, None Dare Call It Treason, if he thought President Barack Obama was a Marxist. “He’s two things,” Stormer told me. “Is he a Marxist or is he a Muslim? He is really involved in both of these things. He’s anti-American.”

    None Dare Call It Treason by John A. Stormer

    John Dewey was an educational philosopher. His experimental philosophies of education were first tried in a model school at the University of Chicago before 1900. They were dismal failures. Children learned nothing. Undismayed, Dewey left Chicago in 1904 and went to Teachers College, Columbia University where he became the dominant figure and the most influential man in American education.
    His influence can be measured by the realization that under Dewey’s guidance fully 20% of all American school superintendents and 40% of all teacher college heads received advanced degrees at Columbia. They adopted Dewey’s experimental theories, which came to be known as “progressive education,” in the schools of the nation. Under the pretext of improving teaching methods, they changed what was taught to American children.
    What did Dewey believe? In his writing and teaching, Dewey rejected fixed moral laws and eternal truths and principles. He adopted pragmatic, relativistic concepts as his guiding philosophy. Denying God, he held to the Marxist concept that man is without a soul or free will.

    Leader of the House Christopher Pyne, a senior moderate Liberal MP, has sounded the warning “we are not changing the leader again” amid speculation Julie Bishop could make another tilt for the party’s top job.

    The former deputy Liberal leader confirmed this week her intention was to recontest her West Australian seat of Curtin at next year’s election and has not ruled out running for the leadership again in the future.

    Asked on Nine’s Today why the Liberal Party didn’t just “let Julie Bishop run the show” given her popularity, Mr Pyne responded: “We have a leader, it’s Scott Morrison. We are not changing the leader again.”

    When Mr Pyne was asked if he was sure of his answer, he said: “Mmhmm, I am.”

    It’s no surprise that students are indoctrinated by teachers
    Kevin Donnelly, The Daily Telegraph

    It beggars belief that children as young as 8, 10 and 11 are now climate change experts and are striking to protest against the Commonwealth government’s supposed failure to stop man-made global warming.

    Instead of being in class learning about what constitutes evidence-based research and that the science is far from settled, students are calling on the government to stop the Adani coal mine and go to 100 per cent renewable energy — represented by unreliable and costly wind and solar power.
    That students have been indoctrinated by teachers to mimic deep green alarmism should not surprise.

    Since schools embraced Al Gore’s fake science about the impending disaster caused by global warming in 2006 students have been given a steady diet of propaganda.

    That the national curriculum mandates sustainability and the environment as one of the three cross-curriculum priorities further explains why students are so biased and uniformed.

    One student wrote about the strike: “In school, we have seen the raw truth of climate change; videos of our dead and dying Great Barrier Reef, increasingly shocking statistics, forecasts of a worrying future.”

    Another student aged 10 argues: “Australia must take action on climate change now before more species become extinct”, while another is terrified that “whole islands will disappear”.

    The reality is that education is no longer objective and impartial.

    Politically correct activists are happy to argue teachers have every right to inflict their personal political viewpoints on students.

    And the Australian Education Union also endorses classroom political activism, best illustrated by its call at the start of the 2003 war against Iraq where it urged teachers to “take action in your workplace and community” and to “Support students who take an anti-war stance”.

    Dr Kevin Donnelly is the author of How Political Correctness Is Destroying Education.

    Democrats after taking the House will attack the President with renewed vigour. Calls to confront Republican leaders become more frequent and increase from mere harrassment to outright bodily harm, a la Steve Scalise. Which is why the gun confiscation crowd are up and about.

    Clement Richard Attlee, 1st Earl Attlee, KG, OM, CH, PC, FRS, was a British statesman of the Labour Party who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1945 to 1951 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1935 to 1955. Wikipedia

    BBC Attlee bio

    During World War Two, Attlee was a highly successful deputy prime minister in Churchill’s coalition government. Then in 1945, when Labour swept to power in a landslide election victory, his combination of social conscience and staunch patriotism encapsulated Labour’s experiment in democratic socialism. This led to the creation of the National Health Service and the nationalisation of coal mining and the steel industry. Attlee saw his role of premier as that of an umpire, reconciling the opinions of a cabinet composed of powerful personalities such as Morrison, Bevin and Aneurin Bevan. He played a critical role in supporting Bevin’s Cold War diplomacy, and in accelerating independence for India, a cause which he had supported for many years.

    The gear arrived yesterday, nearly 2 months later than promised, complete with a customs declaration showing an address in Myanmar as sender, and an invoice that tells us the price “include 5% GST“.

    This inconsequential transaction tells me:

    China is now outsourcing low value manufacturing to shittier, cheaper economies;
    Chinese businesses are driven by upfront price, to the exclusion of other rational commercial considerations;
    GST is treated as a clip on Australian customers that will never be remitted to Australia.

    Good moaning.
    Today we will again be shown with great openness that it all starts in our schools.

    That the Femarxist education bureaucracy and it’s drones of stupidity are abusing our children mentally, both with politically and politically motivated sexual abuse.

    Here they are today, about to prove it to us all.
    To advertise the fact.
    Those who have organised this should not only be sacked, but I believe charged with child abuse, and at least required to pay back all taxpayer funds that they have received while not doing what they were paid to do, instead using their position to politically brainwash our children and confuse them sexually.

    Notafan does not see these people as problems, but instead the parents.
    This is of course a view easy to understand if you take an ahistorical stance, as the parents were brainwashed before them.
    This has been a slow process.
    It’s now speeding up, as intended.
    The baby boomers were slightly brainwashed, (they couldn’t be as radical as they are now) right through to the scenario we see today.
    People who are driven by insanity never rest.
    They make it their life’s work to bring down their hated enemy.
    The west.
    And the more successful the west was, the more the hated it.

    We here at the cat, and many others know what caused our shitful situation.
    Extremists socialists and all manner of lefties,getting to our children over the last 60 years, until we see that not one of the teachers or education bureaucrats will have so much as a question thrown at them, or a microphone put into their face.
    It all starts in our schools, and it started a long time ago.
    Until we pull these rabid, western hating femarxists out of our schools, screaming as they will, from under their defensive rocks behind their defensive school gates, we have not a hope in the world.
    The view held by notafan, that the parents should counter the actions of these filthy brainwashing arseholes at home is ridiculous.
    We shouldn’t have to.
    It’s our taxes paying these low life scum.
    We shouldn’t have to counter anything.
    An imposition unnecessary if we would just attack our problems at the source.

    Oh, and I see the UN PM SLO MO is signing us all up to be pummelled by the next attack on the west by global socialists, as expected.

    Sco Mo is a Malcom pick, and he wasn’t leaving office until he got someone in compliant to global socialists.
