    Why do people so exercised about what gets printed on a HTV card?

    Because so many others do as they say…

  2. candy

    You’d have to say Scott Morrison is trying to alienate or disparage Pauline Hanson. Perhaps he’s got hold of some poll that says on qualitative evidence ON does not matter.

  3. hzhousewife

    Most One Nation voters are disaffected Liberals.

    I have read elsewhere that most ON voters are disaffected Labor!

    When you do a suicide prevention course, as I have, the first thing a trained person must ask a potential suicide is “Do you have a plan?”. If they do, then you take them seriously and try to stop them by moving quickly to alternative and/or emergency action.

    You first find out whether the suicide plan is just a vague notion or if there is, say, a loaded shotgun on the kitchen table.

    Scott Morrison has just announced his Plan.

    Yes and it looks very much like the shotgun option.

  5. Roger

    What’s next…

    Morrison telling coal miners he’s going to put them out of a job?

    The local president of the CWA has more political nous.

    One of Sniffy’s charges could manoeuvre the dickless happy clapper into supporting hamas over Israel.

    Leftards are just waiting to manufacture a crisis with some secret footage of an irate Rabi and SloMo will be straight onto it.

    Certainly, Pauline originally got into Parliament in 1996 essentially on the votes of disaffected Labor voters.

    I must say I flew off the handle and was unfair. McCormack isn’t following Morrison in preferencing the ALP ahead of PHON.

    Good call by the Deputy PM.

    Coal thirsty China sets off alarms

    Perry Williams
    Senior Business Writer


    Plans by China to resume the construction of dozens of coal-fired power plants could partly derail a broader global decline in the number of coal facilities under development, according to a new study backed by US billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

    Satellite photos taken by environment group CoalSwarm last September showed Chinese operators have restarted construction on dozens of suspended projects, which was noted as a “glaring exception” to the global decline in coal plant development.

    The report was authored by the Sierra Club, which is supported by Mr Bloomberg, Global Energy Monitor and Greenpeace.

    About half of the 170 gigawatts of coal plants suspended by China’s central government in 2017 are now back under development, resulting in a 12 per cent lift in global coal power capacity to 236GW in 2018.

    This compares with Australia’s total electricity capacity from all sources of 50GW.

    China may add a further 290GW — more than the entire capacity of the US fleet — under a proposal tabled this month by the China Electricity Council, which wants a 2030 coal power cap of 1300GW from 1010GW now.

    “While this would not necessarily breach China’s pledges under the Paris Agreement, another coal power construction spree would be near impossible to reconcile with the emission reductions needed to avoid the worst impacts of global warming,” Greenpeace Global Air Pollution Unit lead analyst Lauri Myllyvirta said.

    “China’s energy targets have a greater bearing on global emissions than any other national policy decision. It is unclear how the central government will respond, given its recent efforts to slow the rate of coal plant commissioning and the issuing of new permits.”

    Still, momentum remains uncertain with China permitting less than 5GW of coal power for construction in 2018 compared with 184 gigawatts in 2015. China is responsible for 48 per cent of global coal-fired power production.

    The new capacity was the result of a permitting surge from late 2014 to early 2016 after regulations were handed from central to provincial authorities.

    In 2016 and 2017, central authorities sought to rein in the surge through a series of suspension orders. However, many restrictions only delayed new projects rather than stopping them.

    With China financing half of all global coal power capacity, its next move will dictate the trajectory and investor support for the fossil fuel.

    “If the central government were to have its SOEs join the over 100 financial organisations transitioning away from coal, the pipeline for new coal plants would potentially be cut in half,” the report said.

    Globally, there was a 20 per cent drop in newly completed coal plants in 2018, a 39 per cent drop in new construction starts and a quarter fewer plants are in pre-construction activity in the 12-month period.

    The US accounted for more than half of global retirements, the second highest level on record, despite President Trump working to prevent ageing plants from closing.

    “The US is on track to completely phase out coal and transition to a 100 per cent clean energy economy by 2030, and we are at a critical stage where grassroots movements are fighting to move beyond coal,” the Sierra Club’s Neha Mathew-Shah said.

    Maybe the Greens should ask that we do a dry run just to see if the renewable scenario will work.
    Maybe on Earth Day we should worship by turning off all fossil fueled power supplies .

    Why do Arabs want PHON out the way?

  13. Des Deskperson

    ‘Worlds least talented cartoonist and all round self loathing flogbag oozes his lack of knowledge over a page again’

    Marlton went the Yarralumla Primary School. This means he almost certainly grew up in Canberra’s inner south west. It’s a bit more multicultural now, but in those days, it was a leafy little cocoon of whitey public service jobs-for-life privilege – his mother was a public school teacher.

    It would have been – and probably still is – a strong contender for the area in Australia where you would be least likely to meet an Aboriginal.

    So yes, guilt and self loathing in spades

    I have read elsewhere that most ON voters are disaffected Labor!

    I’m not sure it matters? I noticed Tony Abbott said they should preference ON above Labor and Greens, as Pauline H. and her senators in Senate have worked constructively with government to pass legislation in the past and should be rewarded. That seems a more sensible way of approaching matters.
    I think he still believes that. Let’s hope the LNP have some sensible folk in there.

    Frazer Anning’s open letter to the PM doesn’t pull any punches. I predict lots of head explosions from the Left.

    Exactly right A Lurker.

    We’ve already had one head explosion on this thread.

    That’s actually quite embarrassing, seeing mental Illness like that in such a raw form.

    It obviously got to him.

    So you see people who have just derided the length of the letter, it sure kept one lefty busy.

    This is a fallacy. The CONservatives are no more reliable , competent or honest than the left. I would have thought that is patently obvious.

    You might be conflating conservatives with the Coalition.

    They did OK when they were conservative.

    This current mob of Libs are not conservatives.

  32. Tom

    You were right about the Greens primary vote falling – but with some caveats.
    So far they are at 10.4% in the NSW LC.

    Dot, the high water mark for the Filth was 2010 when they got 11.8% om the Reps and 13% in the Senate. It’s been all downhill from there, but the major reason the Filth are taking so long to die is that most journalists (90%+ at Their ABC) vote for them and are happy to infuse every story with Filth bias. The nighty ABC news is one big Filth press release with pictures and the commercial networks have the same mindset.

    Green left lunacy reigns supreme in the media. The only place where public interest lives is the popular newspapers, which live and die on daily sales. But they are now little more than a voice in the wilderness as Spacechook and Google herd the proletariat to fake news on social media.

    Annings letter is rather longer than most people will go right through.

    But extracts by folks like Bolta and even Blair (for whom this would not be his ragular fare). A treatment of the letter in The Paywallian by a columnist there perhaps.

    He is right though that there is only policy for diversity, none for cohesion.

    Social workers report concern over domestic violence in Australia’s Indian community, where women are often the subject of abuse by their in-laws. In one case, an Indian couple fled the country to escape prosecution for the attempted murder of their daughter in law with rat poison.

    Abuse of daughters in law is endemic in India.

    Let me put it another way.
    It isn’t criminality, it’s war.
    Islam has declared war on the west, so they aren’t criminals.
    They are at war.
    The criminals are the ones who opened the gates of the city and let the enemy in.

    You wouldn’t let the Japanese or the Nazis in during ww2 because they declared war on us.
    No difference.
    I mean, they have declared war on us, and every week they’re leaders summon the troops.
    Read their manifesto……………………..
    We wouldn’t take Nazis in ww2 as immigrants and then blame the citizenry for commenting about the gas chambers being built in locations across the country and Australian Joos going missing in the night and scream blue murder and call it hate speech.

    But that is what is happening here.
    That is what our PM is doing.

    Hate speech is the speech ou political elites hate to hear.
    Criticism of them.
    The have , for years, thumbed their nose at democracy and giving the people a say in the future of this country, and now their plans are turning to shit, they don’t want to be told about it
    The Mussies aren’t criminals, they are at war, a long and protracted one with many different battles being fought from population to terrorism.
    I actually have no quarter against Mussies, because if you were born into it, what choice do you have, you’ve been brainwashed since birth.
    The criminals are our traitorous politicians.
    They are the very worst criminals we’ve ever seen on this soil.
    They are in the process of destroying an entire nation , doing the bidding of the UN and the likes of Soros and his organisations.
    I have nothing against individual mussies.
    I am against them being here.
    They can be any race, any religion, except that one.
    Tolerance of intolerance is submission and defeat.

    Their ABC was pretty vile this morning.

    Apparently it must have been a real NRA rep because the ABC never mentioned the set up as being fake.
    Also trotted out the usual “gun control xxx” to pontificate how although he didnt know what Pauline had said he was against it.

    Then across to the knobhead in charge of the Libs trying to corner the greens vote by calling the confiscation laws “sacrosanct”.

    Radio off at that stage, all within 5 minutes..

    Heres the organisation quoted and one of their own self defeating press releases.

    A RISE IN GUN OWNERSHIP
    The estimated total number of guns (both licit and illicit) held by civilians in Australia is 3.2 million. There are now as many guns in private hands in Australia as there was at the time of the Port Arthur massacre

    There are reportedly 172,422 handguns in civilian possession in Australia

    In a comparison of the number of privately owned guns in 178 countries, Australia ranked at No. 25

    Total number of gun deaths: In 2012 there were 226 deaths compared to an average of 600 deaths per year for the pre Port Arthur period to 1979

    So apparently numbers of guns doesnt correlate to numbers of deaths, thanks advocates!!!

    The Qatari government.

    Interviewed yesterday on ABC QLD radio, Peter Greste said that no other media organization had the resources to mount such an operation, which is why many Western journalists, particularly from the BBC, are eager to work for them. He also maintained that AJ was editorially independent of the Qatari government, a claim which is, of course, widely disputed both in the Arab world and by Western governments. He then said that the investigative reporter who headed the operation was widely respected but admitted there were ethical questions concerning the operation and while he wouldn’t use the term ‘entrapment’ what AJ did was tantamount to that.

    Greste now teaches journalism at UQ.

    Cassie, you may be interested.

    From nib in reply to mine:

    Dear Max,

    Thank you for your recent letter and for sharing your perspective.

    nib fully believes Andrew Bolt is entitled to speak his mind freely just as you and other have. It is a fundamental tenet of a healthy democracy.

    We believe companies should be equally free to avoid association with public opinions that they view as unreasonable and offensive, It’s entirely relevant to our business of health insurance as negative association (just as with positive association) does impact us commercially. The inference that pressure groups influenced our position on Andrew Bolt’s comments about the George Pell case is simply wrong. I haven’t even heard of “sleeping giants” until now.

    By proper judicial process, George Pell is now a convicted criminal. Personally, and as someone with a catholic background, it brings me no joy at all. For people inpositions of influence like Andrew Bolt to be suggesting he isn’t guilty in my view undermines public confidence in our judiciary and is extraordinarily offensive to the victims. If on appeal George Pell is exonerated, as Lindy Chamberlain was, well that the judicial system working too.

    Thanks again.
    Yours sincerely

    Diversity creates harmony.

    If my accountant provides me a diversity of opinion in regard to a tax issue, that is unlikely to create harmony for my decision-making.
    If a medical professional gives a diversity of diagnoses to a group of symptoms in one individual, although it may be possible, harmony or homeostasis is not instantly restored because of the same diversity.
    A person participating in a diversity of intimate encounters with a diversity of partners may not always result in a harmonious outcome.
    In a social situation, a diversity of opinion about a particular issue, profound or trivial, can often lead to the opposite of harmony (depending on the relationship of the conversationalists).

    If diversity (the presence of difference) did create harmony (or anything, for that matter), a diversity of political thought would be welcomed as harmonious, correct?
    I’m writing this to myself, of course. To cater to my diversity of moods due to dental pain. Oh happy, happy, joy, joy!

Pressurise the new members into doing what they are told by the voters . When the next election comes after they have had one term ,get rid of them too ,plus any former ones who want back in . The political class must be taught who is the master . Forbid lobbying and political donations of more than $10 per year per person or organisation , punishable by long jail terms and monstrous fines . Pull the elite into gear ,we are the majority.
    Deprivation of other peoples money will destroy them for ever .

    Sure but Australia is home to a lot of fringe groups that are only kept in check because they aren’t pandered to. Make the place less attractive to those that want to abuse the host. I just cant be against the collective guilt in regards to whites for some thing they had nothing to do with and then support the collective guilt against Muslims. All id be doing is mirroring 1735099.

    If whites did bad things to aboriginals as you are alluding to, they weren’t told to by their religion or their superiors.
    In fact the total opposite is the truth.

    Islam’s doctrine of world domination via Jihad, cannot be put in the same category.

    No sign of Vampire I’s watery grave

    A joint operation between the Royal Australian Navy and the Sri Lankan Navy has left the maritime mystery of World War II destroyer Vampire I unsolved.

    Fishermen sparked new interest in the case after they reported nets were snagging in places thought to be open ocean. Two RAN ships went on the hunt for Vampire I, which was sunk by a Japanese air raid on April 9, 1942, with the loss of nine sailors.

    More than 100 personnel on the HMAS Leeuwin and HMAS Diaman­tina this month searched roughly 150 square miles off Sri Lanka to no avail.

    RAN spokesman Captain Charlie Stephenson said the data collected bolstered the chances of finding the ship in the future.

    “Our search data suggest that HMAS Vampire I sunk up to a kilometre and a half down a deep trench and is resting on the sea floor beneath where the battle took place,” he said.

    It’s matters not whether the hate speech comes from an Imam or Anning.
    It has the same consequence.

    It’s ludicrous and deceitful to equate Anning’s comments with a worldwide entrenched violent cult practised by hundreds of millions that has propelled violence and hatred into the west for over 1600 years, fuckwit.

    If you can quote Anning calling for violence against moslems or directing hatred at them then put them up. All Anning is doing is stating the facts around Islam’s incompatibility with the west. Facts. The Koran meanwhile devotes significant space to proposing and giving instruction on how to visit violence against women, gays and non-believers.

If on appeal George Pell is exonerated, as Lindy Chamberlain was, well that the judicial system working too.

    Illogical

    Any decision to dissociate from Andrew Bolt because he doubts the verdict is correct is not offensive to any ‘victim;’ nor does it undermine confidence in the legal system.

    The legal system has an appeals process in place for a reason, clearly that system does not view juries as infallible

    What will he say about the ‘victim’s feelings if the appeal is overturned?

    Key points:
    Reward-free schools shift focus from competing against others to bettering yourself
    Principals say it pushes back against a culture of constant praise
    But some experts warn it fails to prepare children for competition in the real world

    But at St James’ Parish School near the Victorian town of Ballarat, there is no such fanfare or memorabilia.

    Instead of competing against each other, students compete against themselves — attempting to better the times and distances they recorded at the start of the year.

    Children celebrate not with a shiny piece of satin to pin on their shirts, but with the warm inner glow that comes from achieving a personal best (PB), and working together to beat the total number of PB’s set the previous year.

    It’s matters not whether the hate speech comes from an Imam or Anning.

    Does it matter whether it is hate speech?

    Hate speech was a silly neologism from the start with deliberately nebulous and fluid meaning. When progs use it they wish it to encompass both speech that incites hate and speech that a pet demographic doesn’t like.

    Then they pretend that saying “Maybe we should cut back on immigration because we seem to be pouring people in faster than the host society can absorb them” is equivalent to saying “Let’s round group X and kill them”.

LCPS also is committed to creating early opportunities for all students, especially those often underrepresented in advanced academic programs such as the Academies of Loudoun, to participate in STEM and advanced academic activities.”

    Baltimore mayor’s $500K book deal draws intense criticism

    A search is underway in Maryland for “Healthy Holly” — not a fugitive or a missing citizen, but a self-published children’s book series authored by Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and sold for half a million dollars to a health care system whose board of directors she sat on for nearly two decades.

    Since 2011, Pugh received $500,000 selling her illustrated books to the University of Maryland Medical System, a $4 billion hospital network that’s one of the largest private employers in the state. Since the arrangement was exposed by The Baltimore Sun earlier this month, she’s stepped down from the volunteer board and returned her most recent payment of $100,000 for the hard-to-find books. She also defended her actions and portrayed press inquiries as a “witch hunt.”

It was tough because, when you’re a little kid, McDonald’s is where all your friends have their birthday parties, so I missed out on a lot of apple pie

    Happy birthday, Blackball. Sorry I’m so late with the greetings but you got me drunk. We’re like one big family here so if it’s your birthday we’re here to celebrate it with you. Luckily I had bacon, eggs and beer in the fridge and I honestly couldn’t remember if you said to have the beer first or last so, true to a lifelong policy of never eating on an empty stomach, I had it first. Delicious. I don’t normally have elevenses but it’s your special day so I made a special effort – bacon, eggs and beer, not necessarily in that order. Had barely finished that when it was lunchtime, guess what happened. While I was downstairs restocking the beer fridge and getting something out to defrost I noticed a long forgotten pack at the back – bacon! Thought I was out. Sadly only 2kg but still with the rind on. Yum. It defrosted just in time for an afternoon snack and because variety is the spice of life I had a bacon and egg sandwich (beer from a glass, naturally). Quite tiddly now and have been gently tottering, I mean, pottering around the garden. Can’t wait for teatime. I genuinely want to thank you, Blackball, for making this your best birthday ever. Mrs Ted not so impressed with you.

    2014
    Scientists have discovered a gene that predisposes Ashkenazi J€ws to schizophrenia. For purely genetic reasons, these Jews are 40 percent more likely to develop schizophrenia and related mental disorders than non-J€ws, thereby proving conclusively that J€ws are a ‘race’ as well as a culture.
    Israeli and American scientists have discovered a gene among Ashkenazi J€ws that increases their chances of developing the mental disorder schizophrenia, as well as schizo-affective disorder and manic depression. According to a study recently published in Nature Communications, the gene in question raises Ashkenazi J€ws’ chances of experiencing the disorders by roughly 40%, and by 15% in the general population.
    The study was conducted by Professor Ariel Darvasi, assistant dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in coordination with Dr. Todd Lencz from The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York. The first portion of the study included the largest-ever sample group of Ashkenazi J€ws ever researched.
    Of the 2,500 Ashkenazi J€ws from Israel who contributed DNA samples for the study, 1,500 were healthy, while 1,000 were affected by mental disorders related to schizophrenia.
    The reason for choosing Ashkenazi J€ws as the subject for the study, of all groups available, is rooted in the fact that Ashkenazi J€ws are considered to be an especially homogenous group, in terms of genetics. The limited genetic variation among Ashkenazi J€ws allows for easy identification of differences between healthy and affected individuals. Professor Darvasi has studied Ashkenazi J€ws for many years and employed the latest technology available to analyze the DNA samples he received for the study.
    “Current technology allows for very comprehensive DNA analysis and the ability to read millions of SNP points – basically, links in the DNA chain – at the same time, which makes for very effective scanning of DNA,” Darvasi told Haaretz.
    During the first part of the study, the scientists checked for the prevalence of the NDST3 gene, which exists in 99.9% of the population. “But there are two specific variations of it that stand out among those with these disorders,” Darvasi said. The results of the study found that Ashkenazi J€ws who have the variations are 40 percent more likely to contract a schizophrenia-related disorder than those without it.
    Checking the samples collected from Ashkenazi J€ws was only the first part of the experiment. Following the compilation of the results, the scientists began the second stage – a more comprehensive examination of other population groups.
    “After we saw that the first sample was relevant, we continued to investigate the connection between the gene and the diseases among other populations from around the world. In the end, samples from over 25,000 people were checked, including people from Europe, Asia and Africa – which basically covers all the primary ethnicities of the human race,” explained Darvasi.
    The larger sample group also found a correlation between schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder and manic depression and the prevalence of the NDST3 gene, although the numbers were lower. “In terms of the larger sample group, the prevalence of that same gene increased the chances of contracting the diseases by 15% on average, in the other populations that were studied,” continued Darvasi.
    The study took roughly three years, and was funded by an initial grant of $2.1 million from the National Health Institute in the United States. Based on their results, the scientists earned another grant of $3 million to continue their research.
    Roughly 1% of the population is affected by schizophrenia. Those with the disease lose interest in their surroundings, develop dark emotions and sometimes imagine hearing voices or seeing figures that do not exist. Many scientists believe that genes have a great deal of influence on the disease, alongside other environmental and hereditary factors. It has proven difficult to identify the genes associated with the disease, as there is clearly more than one gene responsible.
    Professor Darvasi himself has been searching for the genetic connection to schizophrenia for years, primarily by researching groups of Ashkenazi J€ws. In 2002, a team of scientists he led claimed that a gene called COMT is one of the causes of the disease, responsible for some 20% of all cases of schizophrenia. “We keep adding more information and discovering more genes, we hope to report in the future on more finds like this, with the help of larger samples. That’s what we’re working on now,” said Darvasi.

    Checking the samples collected from [email protected] J€ws was only the first part of the experiment. Following the compilation of the results, the scientists began the second stage – a more comprehensive examination of other population groups.
    “After we saw that the first sample was relevant, we continued to investigate the connection between the gene and the diseases among other populations from around the world. In the end, samples from over 25,000 people were checked, including people from Europe, Asia and Africa – which basically covers all the primary ethnicities of the human race,” explained Darvasi.
    The larger sample group also found a correlation between schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder and manic depression and the prevalence of the NDST3 gene, although the numbers were lower. “In terms of the larger sample group, the prevalence of that same gene increased the chances of contracting the diseases by 15% on average, in the other populations that were studied,” continued Darvasi.
    The study took roughly three years, and was funded by an initial grant of $2.1 million from the National Health Institute in the United States. Based on their results, the scientists earned another grant of $3 million to continue their research.
    Roughly 1% of the population is affected by schizophrenia. Those with the disease lose interest in their surroundings, develop dark emotions and sometimes imagine hearing voices or seeing figures that do not exist. Many scientists believe that genes have a great deal of influence on the disease, alongside other environmental and hereditary factors. It has proven difficult to identify the genes associated with the disease, as there is clearly more than one gene responsible.
    Professor Darvasi himself has been searching for the genetic connection to schizophrenia for years, primarily by researching groups of [email protected] J€ws. In 2002, a team of scientists he led claimed that a gene called COMT is one of the causes of the disease, responsible for some 20% of all cases of schizophrenia. “We keep adding more information and discovering more genes, we hope to report in the future on more finds like this, with the help of larger samples. That’s what we’re working on now,” said Darvasi.

    I think it’s hilarious that people think I don’t like J€ws.

    The truth is, genuine [email protected] J€ws are actually 40% more likely to be MY people, not yours.
    Where you see the differences I see the things we have in common.

    Don’t believe me?
    Sorry guys.
    It’s science.

    Scientists have discovered a gene that predisposes [email protected] J€ws to schizophrenia. For purely genetic reasons, these J€ws are 40 percent more likely to develop schizophrenia and related mental disorders than non-J€ws, thereby proving conclusively that J€ws are a ‘race’ as well as a culture.
    Israeli and American scientists have discovered a gene among [email protected] J€ws that increases their chances of developing the mental disorder schizophrenia, as well as schizo-affective disorder and manic depression. According to a study recently published in Nature Communications, the gene in question raises [email protected] J€ws’ chances of experiencing the disorders by roughly 40%, and by 15% in the general population.
    The study was conducted by Professor Ariel Darvasi, assistant dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences at the Hebrew University of [email protected], in coordination with Dr. Todd Lencz from The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in New York. The first portion of the study included the largest-ever sample group of [email protected] J€ws ever researched.
    Of the 2,500 Ashkenazi J€ws from Israel who contributed DNA samples for the study, 1,500 were healthy, while 1,000 were affected by mental disorders related to schizophrenia.
    The reason for choosing [email protected] J€ws as the subject for the study, of all groups available, is rooted in the fact that [email protected] J€ws are considered to be an especially homogenous group, in terms of genetics. The limited genetic variation among [email protected] J€ws allows for easy identification of differences between healthy and affected individuals. Professor Darvasi has studied [email protected] J€ws for many years and employed the latest technology available to analyze the DNA samples he received for the study.
    “Current technology allows for very comprehensive DNA analysis and the ability to read millions of SNP points – basically, links in the DNA chain – at the same time, which makes for very effective scanning of DNA,” Darvasi told Haaretz.

    It was not part of their blood,
    For they were of the right,
    With long arrears to make good,
    When the Catallaxians began to fight.

    They were not easily moved,
    They were not a culture’s blight.
    Till every count should be proved,
    Ere the Cat’s began to fight.

    Their voices were even and low.
    Their eyes show’d more than sight.
    There was neither sign nor fanfare.
    When the Cat’s began to fight.

    It was not preached to the crowd.
    It was not taken with delight.
    No man spoke it aloud.
    When the Cats began to fight.

    It was not suddenly bred.
    It will not swiftly take flight.
    Through the chilled years ahead,
    When Time shall recall the days and nights.
    That the Catallaxians began to fight.

    It’s called conspiracy to commit a crime, Stimpy.
    If someone says they are members of an organisation that has as a tenet such as kill the infidel, then they are guilty of being an accomplice to that crime if it occurs. We used this to imprison members of the Nazi Party at the Nuremburg Trials

    Usually laws define such by overall length, whether it has a pistol grip, and total barrel length.
    Obviously in the past, people tried to avoid their product being called a pistol if it meant tighter regulation; but here in Planet SJW, getting it called a pistol means its NOT a short-barrelled rifle (NFA tax in America), or a Cat D ‘semi-auto centrefire rifle’ (deeply double-plus-ungood in Australia).

    It was not suddenly bred.

    Speak for yourself Struth. I’ve been outside being followed around by a hungry young kookaburra who I’m trying not to feed so that he/she will learn to forage. Hopefully mum and dad kooka will breed up some brothers and sisters this coming season. They’ve been loudly defending the nest box from the local indian mynahs today.

    You can have one too if you move to the States:

    Aussie woman ‘deeply saddened’ to find kookaburra for sale inside US pet shop (Courier Mail today)

    Kookaburras belong in the Australian bush, not inside a US pet store.

    But that’s where Wendy Davidson, an Aussie living in the US, found this poor fellow.

    The four-year-old bird was being advertised for sale for a whopping $A1700 (US$1200).

    Australian laws state that it’s illegal to keep a kookaburra as a pet, but such laws don’t exist in the US state of Virginia, where the bird was found.

    Amazing what people will pay for a bird.

    And who cares about proper judicial process – that’s his interpretation.

This idea that our courts are sacred and that all Australians are morally obliged to ‘respect’ their verdicts is oily, Pecksniffian balderdash. Everything about the Pell case was disgraceful, including the verdict rendered by 12 random morons literally mustered off the streets.

    On collective punishment.

    It can work extremely well.

    At the same time its abhorrent and unjust.
    When a community decides to tolerate (and the tolerance may be because they are being threatened as well) a % of its members engaging in fighting an “outside” group then it may be justifiable to impose a cost on the “innocent” members. (just a horrible thing to do)

    If you allow the criminal % to have a monopoly on violence and coercion then the community sheltering them sees no downside.

    An example of this sort of tactic would be the Talibans letterdrop campaigns, which explicitly set out group punishment if whole villages side against them or even dare to remain neutral.

    According to the Professor, night letters are a “primary method of Taliban communication” to rural populations in Afghanistan, as well as in urban areas, to express the group’s “desires and demands” (Professor 19 Jan. 2015). The Professor also indicated that night letters “often threaten violence or death if demands are not met” and may also “advise” the audience (which can include an entire district, village, or community leaders) about forthcoming attacks or about expectations of conduct and behaviour (ibid.). In correspondence with the Research Directorate, an independent analyst on Afghanistan [2] explained that the intention of a night letter is usually to “spread fear” and that the purpose of the messages is “generally to threaten or to encourage compliance with Taliban instructions, often to ensure the local populace do not engage in any way with the Afghan government or international community” (Independent analyst 9 Jan. 2015)

    And because the Taliban will use extreme violence whereas the government follows rules the balance of power has shifted to the Talibs.

    Collective punishment works, we are just to civilized (and i mean this in a good way) to use it.

    ‘diversity creates harmony’

    Appalling statement. Who told you that Bob? Was it said at a seminar, and you wrote it down somewhere?

    The only genuine harmony caused by diversity in this country is from the people who come here and WANT to become Australians, not for the welfare but to be part of one of the best countries going around (for the moment).

    I was going to say that kebabs cause harmony, but then I remembered the countless punch ons at kebab shops after the pubs shut.

    So, no. Diversity on its own does NOT cause harmony. I’m open to hear of any examples though…….
