    The reason I raise it, is because I check to see what’s trending on twitter.
    It’s totally manipulated, as most Sundays it will say Insiders is trending (really?) & most evenings it will say The Drum is trending (also really?).
    To me, it shows that twitter promotes some real leftie stuff.
    But yesterday once Latham & a lot of others started tweeting & retweeting about the Drum not having him on, The Drum mysteriously stopped trending.
    I reckon all these social media websites will have all their algo’s ripped apart by regulators at some stage.

    I was going to have a healthy lunch today but Trump’s table now has me mentally eyeing a burger.

    The state cannot win the war on drugs (including cigarettes).

    What fucking war? I haven’t seen a drug dealers house or backyard lab or drug trafficker been torn to shreds in a hail of gunfire or explosion or demolished with a tank in the name of wiping out drugs. Softly, softly, oh there’s a war on drugs, softly, softly, it’s not working, softly, softly, until everyone’s soft in the head and gives up on a ‘war’ that’s never happened. Best that ‘society’ spreads the cost of making it safe for little Jimmy and Sally to get off their tits at a music festival, that’ll learn them!

    In Australia lefties respect white aboriginal elders, elders past and present and in the future, elders who are young’ns, all women, no matter criminal or not,women who are womanish but identify as a gender neutral specific transbeing of pluralipstick , little boys who’s single mommy dresses them up as girls and parades them in gay bars, poofs who want to walk down an aisle in a white dress and give each other pash rash at the alter.
    They respect the rights of farm animals to have their working week set at 38 hrs and on it goes.
    and now you expect me to say what they don’t respect, like families, Christians etc.

    But the thing is they respect nothing.
    None of the above.
    The hate poured on any woman who disagrees with them.
    Milo anyone?

    What ever the left are claiming, in all things the opposite is true.

  18. calli

    The idea of McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King being served on silver platters seems a bit off, but let’s not forget that these are almost certainly lukewarm McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King meals being served on silver platters. It just doesn’t sound appetizing.

    A couple who enslaved a West African girl at their home in Texas for 16 years have been convicted by a federal jury.

    Sweden’s parties reach deal to keep far-Right Sweden Democrats from influence

    Sweden’s ruling coalition has struck a deal with two minority parties to maintain power and ensure that the far-Right Sweden Democrats cannot gain political influence after 124 days of deadlock.

    Annie Lööf, leader of the Centre Party, said on that her party had reached “a breakthrough” in talks with the Social Democrat, Green and Liberal Parties.

    She said her party’s MPs would abstain in next Wednesday’s parliamentary vote on whether Social Democrat leader Stefan Löfven should serve as Sweden’s next prime minister, allowing him to continue in the role.

    The four-party deal which was struck on Wednesday morning was, she said, the “best possible solution in a difficult situation” since the September election.

    ‘Who cares?’

    My only regret about the Trump presidency is that it will end.

    Oh, and congenital liar JC last night accused me of saying that I saw three anorexics together in the mall, which is improbable.

    Indeed it is, and I never said any such thing. I saw them separately, and never claimed what our resident liar said I did. Then he mocked the horrible struggle my friends had with an anorexic daughter as just a convenient anecdote.

    ” Wow! What did they serve for dinner? . It must have been incredible!?”

    “Ermmmmm… well….”

    Young grandchildren let me tell you a story.

    The leader of the government who doesn’t even get paid for being the leader, had people coming around for dinner and had no staff to cook the meals, so he put his hand in his own pocket and paid to feed them all himself.

    Bullshit Grandad, that would never happen, the Prime minister gets paid a fortune and he’d never pay for that himself.
    Watch your language son, I’m still young enough to take you out, but anyway, no you see,………………..this didn’t happen in Australia, that would be a fairytale.
    The people coming around for dinner were happy to eat maccas knowing they were doing their part for the security of their nation.

    Krugman gets a new hole ripped for him….

    https://www.city-journal.org/green-new-deal-ocasio-cortez-krugman

    In the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s, for instance, when the 70 percent maximum rate prevailed, taxpayers could write off all state and local taxes, with no limit—including sales taxes, licensing fees, property taxes, and income taxes. They could also write off all interest expenses without limit—on their mortgages (no matter how many), all credit-card debt, auto loans, or home-improvement loans. Imagine the benefits to a plutocrat, buying a third home or a fifth Bentley. His tax would be calculated on net income, reduced by any fees, sales, or transfer tax, as well as all the interest expenses on the mortgages or auto loans over the years. The code included dividend exclusions and generous provisions for capital-gains preferences. Taxpayers back then could shelter unlimited amounts in IRAs. Social Security payouts were tax-free, no matter how high a person’s income. Individuals could write down their taxable income through averaging provisions and transfer as much income as they liked to their children, who paid at lower rates. There was no limit to rental-loss deduction. Business losses counted against all income.

    Given these breaks and loopholes, it’s no surprise that few people actually paid those high rates on much of their income. The nonprofit Tax Foundation estimates that in the 1950s, for instance, when the top statutory rate was 92 percent, the top 1 percent of taxpayers wrote off so much income that their effective average federal tax rate was about 17 percent. If our highest earners today were offered the 2019 code or the old one, they might well go for the old rules, even at a 92 percent top rate.

    Forever a moocher

    The Morrison government is at risk of losing one of its safest seats, with former independent MP Rob Oakeshott launching a carefully plotted return to federal politics after six years on the sidelines.

    Mr Oakeshott will on Wednesday announce his decision to contest the northern NSW seat of Cowper, which the Nationals hold on what should be an impenetrable margin of 12.6 per cent but could lose through a potent combination of the government’s poll slump and the retirement of popular sitting member Luke Hartsuyker.

    Mohamed Touré, the son of Guinea’s first president Ahmed Sékou Touré, and his wife Denise Cros-Toure arranged for the child to travel to the US when she was only five years old.

    It is an ambiguousness dear to the heart of our moral betters in the fish-wrapper business – to label people as ‘Australian’ or ‘Texan’, creating the impression of members of mainstream society but who turn out to be savages from regions noisome and infernal, where women are traded, and the flutter of a camel’s eyelash can stir the loins.

    Food snobbery is a sign of toxic elitism.
    Army mess food is pretty ordinary.
    For many young blokes it was the best food they ever had.
    They never got anything so posh at home.
    You might not believe it, but many ordinary people grow up in homes with mothers who have no idea how to cook, no interest in doing so and habits that make their children’s nutrition a non- priority.
    That the toxic elite have zero idea that MacDonalds can be a huge step up in nutrition for many is an indication of their fatal detachment from reality.

    No Woolfe, no Miami this time.

    Never watched the show either.

    Speaking of abortion as per above, in Natchez this afternoon the local esplanade and bandstand featured at least a hundred small crosses – about 60cm high – driven into the ground, together with signs giving statistics on how many babies had died in utero. No one around as it was around 5 degrees.

    There is a local place called the “Grand Village of the Natchez Indians” which is really just three mounds and a small museum. The local Indians, who were into human sacrifice when the chief died, took on the French after some decades of dispute, and in 1729 were clobbered with such force it broke up the tribe. Many of them joined other Indian tribes and some reputedly moved to the Appalachian mountains.

    What would we do without government?

    BREAKING NEWS The NSW Government’s investigation into damage at the Opal Tower has found the cracked apartment block needs “significant rectification works”

    The real story is that NSW taxpayers will end up footing the bill, including the fees of the swarm of lawyers all over this case.

    In one of those knee-jerk reactions so beloved of politicians, they recently amended the law so that the owner of the land is liable. This was supposedly to stop some other kind of evasion of responsibility in these cases.

    Guess who owns the land? The NSW government, via various statutory authorities. It is part of the original Olympic site. So, NSW taxpayers will end up paying the bill, not just for remediation or whatever, but for the swarms of lawyers.

    The world of ballet – all pumps and pirouettes – might not seem like the most macho one, but Sergei Polunin disagrees. The Ukrainian-born hotshot was fired by the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet last weekend for a social-media rant, in which he called his effeminate male colleagues an “embarrassment” and told them to “man up.”

    Polunin did not directly address the dancers’ sexuality, instead attacking “weak” men uninterested in their female co-stars. Nevertheless, the Paris Opera Ballet dropped Polunin from its upcoming production of ‘Swan Lake,’ AFP reported. Artistic director Aurelie Dupont called Polunin a “talented artist,” but said his Instagram pontifications went against the company’s values.

    Years ago, Gluten free was unheard of, now on tours, every second bloody woman wants gluten free, a disease of the female stomach apparently.

    Those who request gluten free diet either have 1. coeliacs ( a serious genetic auto immune disease) 2. a form of medically diagnosed gluten intolerance 3. are on self diagnosed health kicks.

    Several in my family are coeliacs and I know it’s a bloody pain for them to eat out and they generally avoid it because people don’t take their condition seriously perhaps because of the presence of group 3 (who tend to be real moaners in my experience). In any case yes there has been an increasing diagnosis of coeliacs and my own theory is because of a diet heavy with high gluten processed grains and in particular wheat. Our wheat for example has a much higher gluten content than ancient breeds or even other breeds used elsewhere in the globe, and a lot of additives in tinned, processed or preserved foods are wheat based. So if you’re carrying the celiacs gene and you eat a white bread sandwich everyday throughout your school years and continue that in your work lunches with a burger on the weekend… we are talking gluten overload here and it will be no surprise if you develop celiacs disease. That’s been my theory for a number of years now and I’ll be curious if those connections are ever made.
    Anyway while coeliacs won’t have an anaphylactic reaction if they eat gluten they will have a reaction that is sometimes quite serious – it varies from person to person and depends on what has been consumed- so I would ask that people take their dietary requests seriously and be honest about whether they can fulfill them or not. On the plus side there is a lot more information and better labelling these days – some manufacturers are moving away from wheat based additives as – all of which helps anyone with special dietary needs managed their own condition.

    You have your outfall for desalination in an area of great turbidity, shandy it with normal seawater, or store and evaporate it.

    If you have it outfall into reasonably calm conditions unmixed it forms a “slug” of highly salty/mineralised water that kills seagrass & critters that cant get out of its way.
    Eventually it breaks up and dilutes through the rest of the water.

    Its not “toxic”, which is a word i now associate with pure ignorance and agenda pushing.

    I think I may have put my finger on the Teacher /Pupil problem being discussed.

    About 80% of the Teachers at my school had only recently fought in WW11.

    I only discovered a month ago that the Gentleman (for that he was) , who taught me English had flown 40 missions over Germany, as a Navigator.

    By the way, those who have a gluten intolerance suffer from celiac disease/gluten sensitivity. But unless you have this affliction, there is no benefit (or drawback) to your diet in avoiding gluten.

    On the gillette fiasco.

    This is the soy girl they got to make their ads.

    The ad was directed by Kim Gehrig at the UK-basedproduction agency, Somesuch. Gehrig was behind the 2015 This Girl Can advertising campaign for Sport England and “Viva La Vulva”, an advertisement for Swedish feminine hygiene brand Libresse.

    https://www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/kim-gehrig-wants-show-female-directors/1425543
    Though based in the UK, the Australian native is currently in her home country finishing an ad for an undisclosed client. Gehrig says she is interested in “using the medium of advertising to make cultural change where possible.”

    “It’s about sniffing out those brands and people who want to do the same thing,” she says. “It has to be inherent in the people you’re working with. You can’t trick anyone into it.”

    And Gillette are doubling down on the dumb.

    Gillette, which is owned by Procter & Gamble, said the advertisement was part of a broader initiative for the company to promote “positive, attainable, inclusive and healthy versions of what it means to be a man”.

    Gillette wrote on their website: “From today on, we pledge to actively challenge the stereotypes and expectations of what it means to be a man everywhere you see Gillette. In the ads we run, the images we publish to social media, the words we choose, and so much more.”

    I cant wait till they feature the 11 year old drag queen and their float at the next mardi gras.

    Desal bitterns are heavy, so as long as you run your discharge line a fair way off shore, and have it run in at the bottom of the water column without much mixing, it will run downhill and out over the edge of the shelf onto the abyssal plain.

I don’t think people really understand just how much does live at abyssal depths either.

    Methylphenidate (Ritalin), the current leading form of treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), has seen a dramatic increase in prescription rate over the past ten years. No contemporary biological basis for ADHD diagnosis results in physicians making their diagnoses based on behavioural symptoms such as hyperactivity and inability to focus. Considering that these symptoms are behaviours that anyone may express at one point in their life, the risk of over-diagnosis of the disease increases.

    My one and only daughter-in-law is a vegan but not one of those wag-your-finger-at-meat-egg-dairy-eaters kinda vegan. Before her pregnancy project she’d do 12 course degustations for those wanting to sample the vegan experience – a taste experience par excellence, her gnocchi are absolutely out of this world, better than my mamma’s and her vegan tiramisu is 2die4 – now that kind of vegan is my kinda vegan. She has a mother-in-law rule which is she’ll eat whatever I prepare and she does eat meat if she knows where the meat comes from and how it is farmed — e.g. she has a friend who raises lambs and she eats his lamb – a very sensible girl who is creating a human being to make me a gonna very soon.

    Correlation is not necessarily causation.
    I suppose there is also a world-wide conspiracy to hide this important data from John Q. Public?

    In my life I have actually met ONE person with MS. None of my contemporaries that I know of has contrasted MS.

    I doubt that anyone seriously thought the outfall was going to the mouth of the Gulf because, it doesn’t have to. The desal plant is south of Adelaide (at Lonsdale – the site of the former Mobil oil refinery) and the outfall is located about 1km off the coast in the deep water channel previously used by the oil tankers. There are six separate outfalls and the design of the diffusers is such that the dispersion performance is maximised.

    Minimum dilution standards for saline concentrate (to protect 95% of species) is 20:1. The desal plant’s typical ratio is between 60:1 and 80:1. I doubt the fishies are even aware.

    They corrupt and control government only because government is corruptible and has too much influence via regulation etc.
    Limit the size and power of government and you limit the corruption.

    Case in point.
    The American government decided it should tell people what was good for them to eat, and the food triangle came out.
    That’s corruptible and looked what happened.
    Government should not be involved in telling people anything about anything like that.
    It is in all sorts of areas it arrogantly thinks it’s needed, and it isn’t.
    You can believe what you want about eating foods, Anne, and we as free citizens can discuss this amongst ourselves.
    Government should be not involved in this at all, and therefore corruption of the message and the picking of food producing “winners” by government would not have happened.

    There is nothing wrong with big,
    It’s how it became big that we need to look at, and if corruption of a too intrusive government is the cause, then it’s government fault for being there at all.
    You can’t corrupt what is not there.
