    Empathy is very useful to hunters. But displaying it to show you care is vulgar and unconvincing.

    Islam is not a religion – it is an extremist supremacist ideology, wearing the cloak of a religion.
    A world dominated by islam would be far worse than one dominated by Nazism.

    And Ladies, don’t forget that under islam, women are effectively of no worth, except for pumping out more little moslems. Appeasing islam is far worse than appeasing the Nazis.

    To return to Dr BG’s comments last night on the ignorance of certain journalists, Lisa has nothing on Leigh Sales. When she kept blathering on as ABC election-night anchor about a ‘confidence motion’, Anthony Green had to pull her up, point out that there is no such thing, and give her, live to air, a child’s guide to the constitution and parliamentary practice. Anyone know how much the taxpayers pay Sales for supposedly being a top-notch political journalist?

    Green, by the way, is excellent – one of the few remnants of a better age when that ABC had standards.

    What I object to is struth claiming that female commentors here supported jacinda’s continued wearing of the hijab

    I blame myself. I shoud never have posted that photo of Mantilla Maggie in response to someone else’s comment.

    Ardern has gone from polite to vulgar in one easy leap. And vulgar to dangerous in a clumsy pirouette.

    And therein lies the difference between the two.

    I apologise in advance for her name and Thatcher’s being in the same post. Unavoidable.

    ‘No one is getting out of here alive’: Bus driver takes 51 children hostage and sets blaze
    [Yahoo7 News]
    AFP
    Yahoo7 News21 March 2019

    A school bus driver has taken 51 children hostage, telling them “no one is getting out of here alive”, before dousing the vehicle in petrol.

    The Year 2 students were coming back from a sports outing at San Donato Milanese, in northern Italy, when the driver abruptly changed route, announcing he was taking them all hostage.

    Armed with two canisters filled with petrol and a cigarette lighter, the driver menaced the children and the three adults on board, took their telephones and tied them up with an electrical cable, police say.

    One of the children managed to get a call through to their parents who in turn phoned the police.

    “I hurt my hands a bit picking [the phone up] up… we are all terrified,” the boy told Italian television.
    Picture by the Italian fire and rescue service shows the burned out wreckage of a school bus after police rescued some 51 children when their driver torched the vehicle. Source: AFP

    Several reports cited the driver saying: “I want to put an end to it, I want to stop the deaths in the Mediterranean”.

    The driver’s motives were not immediately clear and the references to the Mediterranean could be to the thousands of migrants who have crossed from North Africa to Italy, many of them losing their lives on the dangerous journey.

    “He threatened us, said that if we moved he would pour the petrol and set it alight. He kept saying there were so many people in Africa who kept dying and that it was the fault of (deputy prime ministers) Di Maio and Salvini,” a rescued girl told Italian media.
    ‘It is a miracle’: Police say of the rescue

    Police blocked the bus in the street and broke open the back windows to get the children out before the vehicle went up in flames.

    “It is a miracle, it could have been carnage, the police were outstanding, blocking the bus and getting the children off,” Milan prosecutor Francesco Greco said, adding that he could not rule out terrorism links.

    Reports said he was 47 years old, of Senegalese origin and had been a school bus driver since 2002.

    He was divorced from his Italian wife and has two teenaged children. The interior ministry said in a statement that the driver had been previously caught driving while drunk and had sexually assaulted a minor.

    “We are all terrified,” one boy told Italian television.

    About a dozen children and two of the adults were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation while the driver also needed treatment for burns to his hands.

    Interior ministry sources said the minister was looking at withdrawing the driver’s Italian citizenship, a move made possible by legislation adopted late last year.

    Key Messages:
    • China’s anti-dumping investigation against the Australian barley industry is continuing and the potential outcomes remain uncertain.
    • Australian growers should be aware of this market risk as they approach the autumn planting period. Growers are encouraged to seek advice from their independent market advisors or consultants in relation to their grain marketing and crop rotation options.

    The People’s Republic of China initiated an anti-dumping investigation regarding Australian barley in late 2018. The World Trade Organisation definition of injurious dumping is when exports are sold at a price lower than the exporting country’s domestic market, and/or lower than production costs which results in ‘injury’ to the importing country’s domestic pro

    Although the Australian grain industry is confident that dumping has not occurred, the likely outcome of this anti-dumping investigation is unknown at this point in time. Possible outcomes could include the imposition of provisional import measures such as securities or cash deposits on Australian barley exports to China. These measures have a similar impact as tariffs in that they artificially increase the price of Australian barley in China. Australian growers should be aware of this market risk as they approach the autumn planting period.

    China is Australia’s largest barley export market and Australia is the largest supplier of barley to China. This investigation has created uncertainty within the Australian grain market, that has resulted in downward pressure on Australian barley prices. The organisations making this statement; the Grains Industry Market Access Forum, Australian Grain Exporters Council, GrainGrowers, Grain Producers Australia and Grain Trade Australia fully respect China’s right to conduct these investigations.

    my argument is that is a common courtesy to wear appropriate dress when visiting a house of worship, irrespective of who you are or the house of worship

    And it is my argument that there is a great importance in WHO you are and WHO you represent.
    Further, Ardern’s subsequent actions are collective punishment of the innocent.
    Much crowing by the pundocricy about Ardern’s “flawless” handling of the situation.
    In my not so humble opinion she has badly botched it and New Zealanders yet to be breached will pay the jizya.

    The man hunter feels empathy for the deer so he can figure out what it will do next, and when he correctly anticipates the animal’s move, he switches off the empathy and kills it.

  28. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Jacinta played her various cards well during the disaster, realpolitik for her although not for some on the Cat, those of the break through and win persuasion, which during the disaster I think was a misapplied analysis. The headscarf brouhaha is unlikely to have much permanent impact either at home or abroad. Reports from Pakistan (something I saw on BBC news – I think it was BBC – from the usual suspects) indicate that she has mollified some Muslim outrage, but only temporarily I am sure. She’s been rather like Anna Bligh during the Brisbane floods, reassuring but fundamentally flawed in policies. As I’ve already said, Jacinta will fail in the aftermath. Looking to that is a more productive line of discussion, imho.

    In her address to parliament on Tuesday, Ardern honoured Nabi, saying that as he opened the door to the gunman he “uttered the words ‘Hello brother, welcome’. His final words.”

    That is a certainty.
    New Zealand will be the poorer for her failure.
    How much more empathetic and stronger would she have been if she had convened a meeting, away from the mosque, with muslim community leaders to address the needs of the survivors and their families?
    Instead, she elects to crawl. And that is how it will be seen by the Ummah.
    It will not be seen as a gesture of courtesy.
    It will be seen, regardless of what is printed in the western press, as submission.

    It’s a pity certain mosques and their leaders don’t show us, their hosts, the courtesy of not inviting Islamist preachers here.

    The parents of a NZ convert jihadi killed overseas say he was radicalised at one of the Christchurch mosques during a visit from an Indonesian imam.

    Victorian MP Bernie Finn’s refusal to stand for indigenous acknowledgment ‘petty’

    Rachel Baxendale
    VICTORIAN POLITICAL REPORTER
    @rachelbaxendale

    1 Comment

    Victorian Labor frontbencher Martin Pakula says Liberal backbencher Bernie Finn’s decision to refuse to stand for an acknowledgment of indigenous Australians at the daily opening of state parliament is “the type of ridiculous pettiness he’s been associated with for most of his political career”.

    Mr Finn’s actions have been highlighted amid debate over whether to axe the Lord’s Prayer from daily parliamentary proceedings, or add prayers from non-Christian faiths to the ceremony.

    Special Minister of State Gavin Jennings yesterday referred the matter to an upper house committee of review, following calls from Reason Party leader Fiona Patten and the Greens to end the century-old tradition.

    Mr Pakula said he was unsurprised by Mr Finn’s actions, making reference to the Liberal’s decision to return to the chamber to vote on a fire services bill on Good Friday last year, after he and colleague Craig Ondarchie had been granted Labor pairs to observe the religious holiday.

    “It’s probably important to remember that this is the bloke who ratted on a pair deal despite the fact that he professes such profound religious observance that he couldn’t be here — hid out and snuck back in — so nothing Bernie Finn does surprises me,” the Minister for Jobs, Innovation, Trade, Racing, Sport, Tourism and Major Events said.

    “It’s the type of ridiculous pettiness that he’s been associated with for most of his political career.”

    Mr Finn told The Australian he was “not particularly concerned about anything the Minister for Having a Good Time has to say”, referring to a Facebook post he made last night justifying his decision to remain seated during the acknowledgement of country.

    From the Oz. Well done, that man. “Welcome to country” is nothing more then a joke.

  52. Dr Faustus

    The People’s Republic of China initiated an anti-dumping investigation regarding Australian barley in late 2018. The World Trade Organisation definition of injurious dumping is when exports are sold at a price lower than the exporting country’s domestic market, and/or lower than production costs

    So, only a matter of time before China goes anti-dumpty on Australian gas exports.
    Surely?

  53. thefrollickingmole

    An AR-15 is also a tool for a very specific purpose, i.e. to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible, as demonstrated so clearly in Christchurch last Friday.

    Or vermin hunting, target shooting, shooting tins off the back fence or just sitting around doing nothing.

    Numbers is happy for the government armed troopers to shoot people who refuse to comply with his latest orgy of state “lawfare”.

    Numbers also complains that 50 years ago the government forced him into uniform using all its coercive powers.

    I don’t know, Lizzie.
    I don’t think there is enough (read any) history of ‘anti-Muslim terrorism’ in our countries to make that a likely immediate assumption on his behalf.
    It will remain a mystery.

    A lot of women in that situation would go hungry.

    Not really. You should have seen my Sainted Mother drown unwanted baby kittens and cut the head off a chook I was holding down on its neck, and when it had finished running around headless we both drew its lights, and plucked it. Farm life is brutal and it’s a shame we’ve lost much memory of that. Helen does an excellent job here of telling how it is done with empathy and a good aim. I also recall taking a Stanley knife to an abscess on my cat’s foot when I couldn’t afford to pay a vet to lance it. Thinking back, I was pretty good too at chopping up a red bellied black with an axe and I once farrowed a sow of eleven piglets one night, and kept one of them warm in my bed. I was thirteen at the time.

    I think I’ve grown out of all of that now but I’d still shoot Bambi if my kids were hungry.
    Prefer Hairy to do it for me though; he is an excellent disposer of pet rabbits on their last legs. 🙂

  56. struth

    This response from the best women in Australia, cat ladies, shows us just how rooted we have become from the feminisation of the west.
    Look at what we have become, as men now chase the female vote or indeed females are in parliament.
    The clearest thinking women are right here.
    That doesn’t give us much hope.
    We have even got women here who believe women should not be in parliament and it is a fact that without the female vote, there would not be a left wing government in power anywhere in the west.
    I don’t want women back in the kitchen as I often say,(well actually I do) I just want them to realise how serious this is and that they have a tendency to see the world differently and a feminine approach to a male enemy will have you wiped out faster than you can make me a vegemite sandwich.

    It’s almost like this never happened.

    Jones was killed alongside Australian Christopher Havard, whose parents said he was introduced to radical Islam at the Al-Noor mosque in Christchurch.

    Mosque leaders confirmed Havard stayed there and studied in 2011, but denied radical teaching took place. But a man who attended a converts’ weekend at the mosque 10 years ago said a visiting speaker from Indonesia talked about violent jihad and plenty shared his views. “Most of the men were angry with the moral weakness of New Zealand. I would say they were radical.”

    New Zealand is currently the prime example of a nation facing vagicide.

    *vagicide can have multiple meanings. In this instance, the genocidal consequences following the feminisation of a nation. A nation is left totally vulnerable to any predatory culture – like Islam – when it has become feminised.

No extra cost”.

    It is not at present possible to speak of the Liberal politicians as a unified group. Based on what I heard him say on Paul Murray (or maybe some other Sky show), I think Bernardi sees – correctly – that the liberals are badly split, and that he would be prepared after the election to work with the conservatives in the Liberals, such as Zed Sselja for one. In meetings with AC members in Canberra, Cory made it clear that he will not run candidates for the Senate in the ACT, so as to enhance Zed’s prospects. Recently I ran across a former student of mine who was campaigning for a Liberal in the NSW State election. On his account, he is a prominent member of a young Liberal faction who at war with Photios backed other young Libs. AC have something to bargain with, being their large membership; a lot of wrinklies among the base of course, but the young Libs I met have energy and enthusiasm. Advance Australia could be the Get Up-type organism.
    Bernardi may be waiting to see how matters transpire after May. Even so, he could at a minimum push very hard and publicly on policies that are congruent with those the conservative wing of the Liberals. As I have suggested here, it would do good for the AC to promote a breakthrough energy policy, such as putting nuclear power on the table for discussion. This might earn him a few appearances on television, etc.
    I am not at all sure that this could come about, but it’s worth thinking about.

    In some ways, I prefer it when the numerical troll talks about Vietnam, for two reasons. First, it is ancient history, and is less damaging than his views on politics (or his “values” as he calls it).

    Second, he actually has a good point about conscription for overseas service.

    Australia had a proud tradition of voluntary service until 1965. This was broken only by the introduction in 1943 of compulsory service outside Australian territory or mandated territories, by the Curtin Labor government. This was largely as a sop to our “Great and Powerful Friend”, the US, which was less than happy about sending its own conscripted military personnel here, while we kept ours under limited service conditions. Only a few conscripted soldiers actually served outside our territory, most of them around Merauke in what was then Dutch New Guinea.

    My position is that service outside national territory or Australia’s EEZ in “wars of choice”, political wars, should be strictly voluntary. When the fighting is within Australia, however, it must be all in, with no exemptions other than on fitness grounds.

    Thanks for the response.
    From my position as a simple-minded, redneck, bogan, filthy-white-scum, deplorable, if any apparent ‘conservative’ Liberals remain, they should identify themselves and stand up for what they believe in. In both my professional and personal life, I respect and get along better, with those who have a ‘what you see is what you get’ type of personality. That doesn’t mean loud-mouthed extroverts, but I like to know where I stand. I have little respect for anyone who does not even make an attempt to stand up for what they believe in. Even if their attempt is half-hearted and they fall flat on their face, at least they have stood for something, albeit weakly. My point is that I will never vote for a member of the Australian Conservatives, who was a former Liberal politician, but waited until the smoke cleared before they peeked out from behind cover. That would be my definition of a coward. Being a politician is not life and death on a battlefield. If you are not successful in politics, there is life afterwards. So take a risk, and you may be surprised by the number of disillusioned voters who have been waiting for just that: political courage.

    A marriage of AC and the limp survivors of the Liberals is not something I would place my confidence in, nor support. But then, I’m just a simple redneck.

    Colombian woman known as ‘The Beast’ dies after ‘five hours of drug-fuelled s3x’

    A woman has died after having s3x with a male partner for five consecutive hours, it is believed.

    The 32-year-old, known as ‘The Beast’, told her partner that she felt dizzy before going into cardiac arrest at a hotel in southern Cali, Colombia, reported La Republica .

    Her partner called for emergency services but they reportedly took too long to arrive.

    He then wrapped the unconscious woman in a blanket and took a taxi to the University Hospital of Valle.

    However when they arrived the hospital, doctors failed to revive her and pronounced her dead.

    Police officers learned later that the pair had taken drugs in attempt to prolong the s3x.

    It’s said that they had been having s3x for five hours non-stop.

    An investigation into the woman’s death has been launched to determine if the woman was a habitual drug user and if the substance had an influence on her death.

The post-killing narrative will be filled with calls for gun control, controls on the Internet, controls on social media, more power for states to crack down on association and speech. This is precisely what the killer hoped to bring about in his own words: “To incite violence, retaliation, and further divide… To create an atmosphere of fear and change in which drastic, powerful and revolutionary action can occur.”

    Mother jailed over genital mutilation of daughters in Africa
    Sonia Kohlbacher, The Courier-Mail
    March 21, 2019 11:48am
    Subscriber only

    An extremely sick Queensland mum who took her two daughters to Somalia for painful genital mutilation will go to prison as a deterrent to others.

    The woman, who cannot be named to protect the identities of her children, was found guilty of taking her daughters, then aged 10 and 13, to her birth country in April 2015 for the procedure.

    Brisbane District Court Justice Leanne Clare described the mutilation as child abuse, and said the mother, 45, had taken them to Africa for the purpose of having it done.

    “In this case, a woman of unknown ability used a sharp implement to excise the clitoral hood of each girl,” Justice Clare said during sentencing today.

    “The girls were not sedated, there was bleeding and a period of significant pain for perhaps a number of days. There was obvious risk of infection, even death.”

    She is the first person to be sentenced in Queensland for removing a child from the state for female genital mutilation.

    My Pringle pure wool jumpers pill under the arms and they do need shaving, as do some others. Depends on the type and thickness of the wool, and also whether there is any synthetic mix, which some ‘good’ jumpers do have in order to maintain a better shape over womanly bumps. I expect you are wearing Mongolian moose or something that is too thick to pill badly. Angora and cashmere also need attention to stop any matting that occurs. Mostly, I dry clean my jumpers anyway. Cotton sweaters can also pill. I have one pure wool grey designer jumper embellished with bits of metal in a trendy design. It pills in big rolled shreds all the time; a thorough pest.

    The hunter is a churchgoer too, but there’s more.

    The trophy hunter who shot a sleeping lion in a video clip that caused outrage has been named as a churchgoer and longtime shooting enthusiast from Illinois. Guy Gorney, who hails from a small town southwest of Chicago, could be seen taking aim with a rifle mounted on a tripod at a lion sleeping at the edge of scrubland

    Oh yea, the outrage.

    At the first shot the lion arches its back, legs in the air, and tries to roll to its feet. After two more it stops moving and a guide says: “OK, OK, don’t do any more.” The guide, who has a southern African accent, shakes his hand. “That, Mr Gorney, is a very nice lion,” he says. “Well done.” The clip’s location and vintage remained unclear but it caused outrage after it was shared online by an animal rights advocate based in the UK.

    Now The Times is trolling him, or more like stalking and they’re kind of telegraphing his address too as they tell you he has a connection with Illinois.. But as I said there’s more.

    Calls to Mr Gorney’s home phone went unanswered last night. He is a retired utilities executive who served, from 2005, as head an electricity company that operated coal-fired power plants.

    And that’s the clincher. He worked for a utility that actually owned coal fired power stations.

    Shipping was the great constraint during WW II.

    The US is sometimes criticised for not raising more divisions and sending them to Europe, so divisions in the line could be withdrawn for rest and to integrate reinforcements. Yet, even had more divisions been raised, they could not have been moved to Europe in time to be useful.

    My books are not accessible at the moment, but from memory three divisions in Europe, the 13th Airborne and 16th and 20th Armored, each spent only a few days in the line, and those right at the end of the war.

    Saving shipping by using locally produced food was essential.

    It could be argued that Curtin could have kept the 90,000 Australians in uniform, but then food would have been imported from the US. Also, McA wanted a US return to the Philippines, not an Australian one. War is the continuation of politics by other means, and McA was a very political general.

    I have been experimenting. I noticed that my sinuses cleared up about 3 or 4 in the morning.Now as soon as I went for a walk in the morning the congestion started up again.This made me think it was an allergic reaction to something about the place. So I started to wear a mask.Don’t do this. If the mask is fine enough to keep out pollen then it wont let fresh air in.
    My Doc wrote me a script for Avamys which is Latin for” complete shit on a stick thank you”.I then grabbed an old tomato sauce plastic bottle and shoved a plastic tube down to the bottom and filled it up with salt water with a bit of bi-carb in it. I then went for a walk ,when the congestion started I irrigated the crap out of both nostrils. In a 4 KM walk I did this three times. When I got back home I had clear sinuses. So, you know, different strokes for different folks.

    The report makes clear that the child was sent to Africa, and that’s enough I think.

    In the years 1969-71 when I lived in Tanzania, the government ran a campaign against FGM (although not to much effect out of Dar es Salaam I think), and the primary spokesperson was the Vice-President, one Rashidi Kawawa, a Muslim. (Nyerere, the President, was raised a Christian). This may suggest that the practice was prevalent in the Muslim component of the population, but more significantly that it was not mandated by the Muslim religion.

    If you have good evidence otherwise, what is it? One question to pursue is whether Indonesian Muslim women are subjected to this vile practice.

    Australia had a proud tradition of voluntary service until 1965. This was broken only by the introduction in 1943 of compulsory service outside Australian territory or mandated territories, by the Curtin Labor government. This was largely as a sop to our “Great and Powerful Friend”, the US, which was less than happy about sending its own conscripted military personnel here, while we kept ours under limited service conditions. Only a few conscripted soldiers actually served outside our territory, most of them around Merauke in what was then Dutch New Guinea.

    Not quite.

    Militia of the 39th Battalion (the chokos) bore the brunt of the Kokoda campaign for about a month.

    Although always outnumbered by at least five to one by Japanese armed with artillery, mortars, and heavy machine guns, the lightly armed “chocos” of the 39th Battalion held the Japanese for over one month under appalling conditions until relieved by battle-toughened men of the 2nd AIF Seventh Division.

    For military history Cats, I was browsing Gutenberg a couple days ago and found this:

    The French in Algiers by François Antoine Alby and Clemens Lamping (1855)

    Lt. Lamping was a German who joined the French Foreign Legion in 1840 and served in Algeria in the early years of the French expeditions. He seems to have been a ranker or possibly a corporal in his FL company, but is clearly an educated guy.

    Lt. de France was a French navy lieutenant who was captured by the Algerian locals in 1836, and held for 5 months before being exchanged for captured tribesmen.

    Both accounts are fascinating, from a period not much covered in history. Well worth the free download. 😀

    A newly independent Australia administered the Territory of Papua in 1906. At the end of the First World War and the German withdrawal from New Britain, New Guinea became a mandated territory of Australia in 1920. After the Second World War, Papua and New Guinea were combined and Australia continued as administrator until 1975 when Papua New Guinea achieved independence.

    It was effectively an appendage of Australia, not all that much a “foreign” territory.

    New petition doing the rounds; ain’t multiculturalism grand:

    Australians have recently witnessed abhorrent behaviour from a number of Parliamentarians. We have seen politicians inciting violence and hatred. We have also seen examples of divisive, bigoted rhetoric. We have had enough. If our elected representatives will not act with dignity, we will create a Code of Conduct and hold them to account.

    Lately, we have seen the standards of Parliamentary behaviour disintegrate as political debate has become toxic, and dangerous. The recent statement by Senator Fraser Anning blaming the terrorist act in Christchurch on immigration is only one example: Senator Barry O’Sullivan made racist remarks around “biosecurity” against the Chinese community, while Senator Pauline Hanson has described Muslims as a “virus to be vaccinated.” Who could forget when Senator Hanson turned up to the Senate in a burqa, a harmful stunt that only sought to stoke division and hatred.

    We have already seen the real-world implications of this behaviour in violent attacks and frenzied media coverage of racial and cultural minorities.

    That is why we are calling on the Australian Government to develop and establish a Parliamentary Code of conduct that includes race ethics.

    The following are the specific demands for inclusion as part of the code of conduct.
    1. All parliamentarians and their staff to stop using Parliamentary resources and privileges to incite hatred against any sector of Australian society. This applies equally within Parliament and any other public forum.
    2. All parliamentarians recognise the value and contribution of the First Peoples of Australia; the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
    3. All parliamentarians respect Australians’ diversity of colour, national or ethnic origin, culture or religious belief.
    4. All parliamentarians recognise the value and contribution of culturally and linguistically diverse, and new and emerging communities.
    5. All parliamentarians reject discriminatory, divisive or exclusionary statements. This means any statements that are not consistent with the values of social inclusion, tolerance, and respect for all persons, regardless of colour, gender, national or ethnic origin, culture and religious belief.
    6. All parliamentarians uphold values of social inclusion, tolerance, and respect for all persons, regardless of colour, gender, national or ethnic origin, culture and religious belief.
    If our elected representatives do not abide by this Code of Conduct, they would be censured, disciplined, and held to account by the Australian people.

    We want to live in a harmonious society where embracing differences underpin our relations. We expect our politicians to act as good role models and stand against those spreading hate and division. We need a Code of Conduct to ensure our elected representatives are held to account.

    Please, if you agree – sign and share this petition. Thank you.

    What other changes are also possible?
    Ms Xamon’s bill focuses largely on group voting tickets, but there are other criticisms about WA’s voting system that could also be addressed.

    A group of 12 experts from all of WA’s universities recently wrote a joint letter to every WA MP, calling for a range of changes — including the group voting ticket issue Ms Xamon is trying to address.

    Most critically, they also called for a total change to the way WA’s Upper House is set up.

    Currently there are six regions, with three of those in the city and the rest coming from the bush.

    Each region elects six members, even though the population of each Perth electorate is drastically higher than each of the regional ones.

    “This distorts electoral outcomes and fails the democratic fairness test as it denies Western Australians an equal say in how their state is governed,” the group of 12 academics wrote.

    A range of proposals have long existed to attempt to tackle this, such as giving Perth four regions to the country’s two or doing away with the region system altogether and having Upper House MPs elected proportionately to their party’s statewide vote.

    FFS its not enough to have the bulk of services & spending Perth centered, oh no, they want to completely strangle the outer areas.

    ….
    A bill to amend current laws to allow single men and same-sex male couples to access surrogacy is currently before WA’s Upper House, where MPs will soon be given a conscience vote — a rare opportunity in which members are not obliged to follow a party line.

    But Dr Allan said the amendments did not go far enough, and she wanted to see a full re-write of both the Human Reproductive Technology Act (1991) and the Surrogacy Act (2008).

    “It is really time to go back and say society has changed, our understanding of assisted reproductive technology has changed,” she said.

    Ladies, again, you can bullshit on until the cows come home, but the fact of the matter is in this situation, after the death of Mussies, for the first time by a revenge terrorist in the west, what she has been doing is showing the mussie warlords, muftis, and other assorted sand monkeys that we are pathetic and weak.

    Of the thousands of terrorist attacks on our countrymen and of people in the west, blown up, run over, butchered and shot, not one Mussie leader has ever hardly grunted about it, and most celebrate it, and then this dopey bint does this, and you all agree, except for Housewife … that she did the right thing, showing your absolute ignorance to the plight of future victims of mussie terrorism from an emboldened Islamic world who is laughing at her and western leaders, except for Trump.
    I wonder who does more for those victims in Christchurch’s families, the local population and westerners, or ISIS and the Islamic world.
    They strap bombs to their kids, but you think after this, a western leader putting on a Hijab is fine according to your pampered female western sensibilities, well it’s not.
    And you won’t be told, fine.

    But as I work our trolls,I work you.
    You may be pretending to be smug, but you have made dorks of yourselves today, and Matrix transporm can see it, and so can many others.
    But you kept at it and made it worse for yourselves.

    Today, people will walk away from this blog more convinced that women think in ways that are good in some situations but may need confronting in others.
    You helped people reach that conclusion.
    It was nothing personal, and I hold no antipathy toward you.
    I like you gals.
    You’re all probably much smarter than me.
    This isn’t about intelligence or smarts, it’s about your wiring and ours, after millions of years of evolution where men did the defending and fighting.
    Please respect our wiring may be of benefit to listen to,and shh, just shh , listen to what we have to say, without getting insulted.

    But it still needed exposing, and it’s a good thing.

    Johno I am a Collingwood man. My fear about them is that they might do an Adelaide. Roughead down back is our most important recruit.

    Wally and the PM with the conversation the country needs to have

    I doubt it … at this point almost nobody givers a flying fuck what either have to say.

    I wonder if Waleed realises he has made the transformation into being Hinchy for the millennials. Tune in to watch as he decides on the thumbs up or down sort of thing, it won’t sit well with his self opinion when he realises it.

    I said women here never said good on Jacinda for traipsing around in a hijab for a couple of days but that it was appropriate to comply with religious dress when visiting a house of worship

    And in this situation, men would say, no it is not.
    Not at all.
    She has future terrorist attacks to consider and she did not have to go into the mosque.
    FMD.
    Talk about stubborn.

    So, let me get this straight.

    The MSM are allowed to talk about the Christchurch attack. They have obviously seen the videos. The producers at the very least. You would assume they have read the manifesto. They can have “experts” come on their TV shows and pontificate their views about the whole affair.

    Politicians can watch the video. Law enforcement can watch the video.

    Meanwhile, the people who ultimately pay their wages can’t, on threat of being imprisioned.

    Unleash the giraffes.

    Things are close in the polls. Shouldn’t Gladys B, be whining about sexism, misogyny or racism, or a mixture of the three? Oh wait, she’s being judged on her record, as Gillard was.

    Ouch! The bar chicky didn’t like the hat.

    Because I am a New South Welshman I followed the Swans. But they have just become so wishy washy that I have had to abandon ship.

    You should support GWS.

    Collingwood because everyone hates them, but leaving aside Eddie, you have to admit they are the class team at the moment.

    Depends how you define class. Winning grand finals is pretty classy in my book but Collingwood haven’t done too much of that lately.

    These things are tools. They have nothing to do with “freedom”.

    All Power is ultimately derived from the ability to do violence.

    The relative Power of different groups is based on their relative ability to do violence.

    If the Citizens ability to do violence relative to The State is quashed, then they are rendered Powerless.

    Following this, the Freedom of Citizens is then quashed.

    This explains how a backward group of third world numbskulls wields so much Power in Australia.
