    Better still, a woman “devout Catholic”.

    Hopefully her Catholicism will be called into question.
    Will she be representing NSW or the Vatican in the Senate?
    Due do her devoutness, she should lead the Parliamentary prayer group, just like Rudd did.

  2. Infidel Tiger

    KK is Catholic in the same way that Ivan Milat is a tour guide.

    What are KK’s views on abortion?

    She’s a cabinet minister for one.

    Somewhere, in the bush near Canberra, sit 12 possums in their underpants, freezing their nuts off.

    The possum skin fauxboriginal fashions are locally sourced …

    … from Unzud.

    I believe Gab heads over there occasionally to personally supervise the cull.

    Very poor liquidity management. And possibly some dodgy property valuations? There’s some more information here: here

    LL, it is called competition – Telstra are trying hard to keep up with theirs.

    Our download speed on cable went from 30 to 50 to now max 100 without any increase in charge.

  8. memoryvault

    I no complain, but this seems a little strange.

    It’s Telstra, Leigh. Don’t even ask.
    Telstra’s pricing policies are one of the great unanswered mysteries of the universe.

    Right up there with “what is the meaning of life”?

  15. John64

    It has got me completely stuffed why KKKeneally is clearly regarded by many in the Liars as an electoral asset:

    – Ms 26% the one time she went to the NSW voters as premier.
    – Completely bombed in the Bennelong byelection.
    – Her show on Sky was the lowest rating in the station’s history and canned after just 5 weeks.
    – Captain of Tits Peanuthead’s election bus which is presently stuck in a ditch somewhere out the back of Longreach.

    As far as I can work out everything she’s ever touched has turned to absolute shite.

  16. feelthebern

    I think Marles/Pyne had lower ratings.
    But for some reason that thing kicked around for a bit.

    You specified no particular report.
    You clearly intended to give the impression that the ABC did not report this event as a result of bias.

    Numbers – I posted my comment at 12:17 pm. I specified “the ABC”. I specified “reporter on midday news”. I specified “footage”. All of which clearly refers to the ABC midday news with Ros Childs on the television, which is the same on ABC 2, ABC 21 and ABC 24.

    I did indeed intend “to give the impression that the ABC did not report this event as a result of bias” because that sure is what it looked like to me. As I said I cannot imagine an ABC reporter forgetting to mention such a historic moment if it’d been an ALP ministry being sworn in. Especially when the historic subject is wandering around in front of the journo wearing a wallaby skin cloak. It’s kind of noticeable, you know.

    If the ABC chooses to report such events in some story buried on their website where no one will see it, and not on their flagship news program just after the even took place, well that’s their privilege. I however want the privilege of not having to involuntarily pay for their ideological bias, which as I said it looked to be in the same way that dogs’ balls look prominent.

    Coal mining companies in Queensland are set to be slugged with a new “infrastructure levy” by the Palaszczuk Government.

    Queensland Treasurer Jackie Trad has called a meeting today with coal miners to announce the new levy, understood to have been negotiated in backroom talks with BHP.

    Industry sources said the proposed levy would raise money for infrastructure projects in the regions and will be a greater financial burden on thermal coal companies because of the lower world price on the commodity.

    Corporatism is freaking evil. Just as BHP exits coal mining they booby trap it for everyone else.

    Ms Keneally as Premier presided over the most ghastly angst-ridden policy mess ever seen in NSW: privatisation of the electricity assets. That destroyed three Premiers, including her, and put the ALP out of government for at least a dozen years.

    Which led to the present system whereby electricity prices contributed to Shorten failing to win the election.

    In the Oz today has ScoMo waving his “big stick” at energy companies. And industry is complaining today about sky high gas prices, brought on by the wind/gas generation model and the ALP/Greens’ locking of the gate.

    Any machine man in the NSW ALP would wince at anyone linking the terms “Keneally” and “electricity” in the same sentence. And the unions, who fought the privatisation like rabid honeybadgers, have loooong memories about ALP Premiers who privatise wonderfully soft feather beds.

    This has echoes of something else

    Country Hour – each as bad as the other

    But I reckon wanting to kill your dog BBQ it and make you eat it is far worse that giving bad dreams to the farm invaders. We are told over and over to tell our stories on social media, put the good news out there, but how do people handle bullying and abuse? Allow no comments at all?

    This is truly disturbing. But it reminds me of something – each as bad as the other – I think it is used in other stories to lessen the nastiness of the RoP, etc, etc, while trying to make the target as bad and therefore worthy of insult or inviting insult. Target = Deleriously right on conservative and the like.

    You are right Cassie Scumbers applauds kkk on her heretical positions, and he let slip the other day he was a pro abort.

    watch him rush in shortly to deny his comment referencing the Alabama abortion bill was implicitly pro abort

    People disrespect trad Catholics for liking ‘smells and bells’ but people like scumbers and kkk think Jesus Christ was an sjw, made in their image, of course, and the rituals feels good too, except confession, they don’t do that.

    I can’t speak for the present, but back in the late 1980’s early 90’s ANZ had quite a reputation for their offshoot “managed investment accounts”. A farmer I knew invested $50,000 with one such account of theirs, and got back fourteen cents in the dollar.

    The hell of it is, when he told me that he had just finished telling me how he had recently invested $20,000 in a similar account – with the same bank. When I rather incredulously enquired as to why, he replied he figured the chances of it happening again were miniscule.

    I think he ended up getting about 29 cents in the dollar second time around.
    But he still banked ANZ.

    Farmers can be very strange folk sometimes.

  44. calli

    And yet the media invariably referred to her as a “staunch Catholic” during her first political iteration.

    That’s because she’s their Staunch Catholic.™

    It matters not a jot whether she’s orthodox or barking mad. They don’t actually believe any of it. But she furthers the cause. And, on a spiritual level, salves what is left of their seared consciences.

    Compare and contrast with Israel Folau.

    “AAP Sydney Feb 12 – Pope Benedict XVI’s legacy is likely to be his surprise resignation, former NSW premier Kristina Keneally says. Ms Keneally, a staunch Catholic who was also the government’s spokeswoman for World Youth Day in 2008, said that like many she was surprised by the Pope’s decision.”

    LOL; here’s how it played out in the newsroom:

    “Quick, who can we get to comment on the pope’s resignation?”

    KK?

    “Don’t forget to describe her as “a staunch Catholic”!”

  49. None

    I’m not Catholic but I can’t stand KKK and I particularly hate how she maligns and slanders sincere Catholics who actually make an effort to live by their faith. To go after your co-religionists because you yourself can’t be asked living by your so-called Faith is probably one of the lowest of the low and reviews of particular nastiness. She wants bragged to me on Twitter – before she blocked me -“that she had some quals in Theology. No she doesn’t. She has an M A in religious studies from some non-descript College. She’s not a theologian of any sort, has never formally studied it and is certainly not qualified to teach Catholic theology and has no authority to expound on it. She’s really just basically a nasty bitch and a Chicago style thug politician.

    I’m really starting to think that anyone who isn’t born here or who hasn’t been here since they were an infant should not be in Parliament. These f****** ring-ins like Keneally and Cormann anWong, Luke that Blacklipped beach at rugby Australia and the Irish Leprechaun and on and on have no idea about what makes Australia tick and what is important to us and we don’t like what they have imported either. I couldn’t stand Barry O’Farrell either but I will never forget how she made that disgusting comment about his first wife give me that she herself favours divorce. In fact I would say that if it wasn’t for the fact that she lost a child to stillbirth should probably be out there with the proboarts as well. A truly vile creature.

    I think you’ve nailed her None. Keneally is a skank….and that is still too complimentary.

  52. If the ABC chooses to report such events in some story buried on their website where no one will see it, and not on their flagship news program just after the even took place, well that’s their privilege

    You are part of a fading minority that gets your news from television.
    Look around you and watch the millennials source their news. I can’t remember the last time my kids watched TV news.
    ABC and other news agencies use a range of platforms. Watch the rolling coverage across all ABC sources, and you’ll see Wyatt’s swearing in.
    You did what is par for the course here, which is to post something that derives from your own bias, and then attempt to rationalise it afterwards.
    This blog site is used by a small minority of biased people who sit at one end of the political spectrum, and most of what is posted here is driven by that. Anything that doesn’t fit within that very narrow band is called “biased”. Of late, that description has been applied here to Channel 7, Channel 9, and occasionally to the Ten network.
    It makes no difference whether it’s public or commercial television, if content doesn’t fit the politically correct Catallaxy line, it’s labelled “biased”.
    It’s important to call it out now and again, just to remind you that there is a real world out there. Echo chambers (like this one) are very boring inconsequential places.

    She tweeted that she was pro abort

    For the record (again) my position is that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. That is, our world should make it easier for women to control their fertility and, if they choose to, raise a child (social supports, etc)

    Here’s a comparison I suggest Francis thinks about instead.

    Having sex without birth control is like playing Russian roulette.

    If Francis wants less abortions, the Catholic Church should stop opposing birth control. The Church should be promoting it instead.

    Of course this would be more likely to happen if there were women in leadership roles in the church.

    This is the flawed leadership, thinking and theology that results from an all-male priesthood in the Catholic Church.

    Because KKK thinks all women in the Church are in lock step with her (and who cares what Christ taught anyhow)

    Not to mention there is no evidence that it is ‘staunch Catholics’ lining up to abort their babies.

  63. notafan

    KKK couldn’t write one paragraph that wasn’t contradictory

    if women only have to deliver their children alive if they choose then you are offering abortion as a form of contraception (which is what most abortions are anyhow)

    There is no shortage of artificial contraception in the US, yet Planned Parenthood performs hundreds of thousands of abortions, medical and surgical, every year.

    Why?

    I did so idly today. Usually I don’t. I prefer Nine and Seven, who are not as nutty as the ABC. But I was wondering what the ABC would say today and it was noon so I turned them on. The very first story was what I commented upon. That was enough for me as they then started going on and on about Shorten’s front bench, which was a complete waste of time given oppositions are pretty powerless.

    The ABC is most notable in what it doesn’t report. They really really hate any story that doesn’t fit their cause, and when they have to report on one they don’t like they tend to do so in the basement of their website behind a door saying ‘beware of the leopard’. And if you don’t get that allusion you really are thick.

    The ABC continues the hit piece on One Nation:

    Rodger Muller, the everyday Australian who went undercover inside the National Rifle Association

    Funnily enough, Muller doesn’t exactly paint NRA members as evil right-wing lunatics:

    “It did become part of my life and quite normal.

    “It’s hard. And at the end of the day nearly everybody that I met throughout the project were quite nice people, and you do form a bond, because that’s part of the job and I think just human nature.

    “It was a difficult thing to watch the process.”

    He said people involved in the NRA are protecting what they “believe is the right laws, and in America being the Second Amendment”.

    I would say this is a story of two organisations: The NRA and Al Jazeera. What I would like to see is a three year undercover operation of the latter. I dare say the results would show clearly which of the two is truly evil.

    Ah, I knew it was familiar.
    But, case in point, BBC all the way, carried to mine ears and eyes by the fellow traveller ABC (the movie might have been US, but I think my point stands).
    It’s a common refrain from many of my mates when I politely suggest that the ABC be burnt to the ground and the earth thereopon ploughed with salt- “but what about all of the wonderful free programs that it bought to us?”

    Does it come from an ABC or BBC program?

    Yes, as Graham put up. The ABC played the radio version on RN not long after the BBC first broadcast it. I still think the radio version is the best! For a couple weeks I listened to a late night repeat on RN just before going on each night shift at a gold plant. Good way warm up for a shift. But the movie had yummy Ms Deschanel as Trillian, so I give it a pass too, especially for MV.

    Perhaps Friedeggburger can console him with a kiss and a cuddle.

    Labor frontbencher Ed Husic will quit the frontbench to make room in the ministry for his colleague Kristina Keneally.

    Senator Keneally had wanted the position of deputy Senate leader but lacked factional support, leading to criticism new leader Anthony Albanese would struggle to have enough women in senior positions.

    Oh blimey. All right so, Keneally’s Identity, trumps Husic’s Identity, even if she is a Christian, in the scale of ALP Identity Politics. Keep it up Labor, having an unprecedented swing against you in Sydney’s Western Suburbs you decide that the best way to confirm for the voters out there that they got it right is to bounce Ed Husic in favour of Kristina Keneally!

    “Western Sydney University political scientist Andy Marks, “Some of the worst swings occurred in the most rusted-on Labor seats, such as Chifley, which has been retained by Labor MP Ed Husic. The electorate hit back with a 6.72 per cent swing against Labor. “Typically that just doesn’t occur in a seat on that kind of favourable margin and something in the campaign narrative has triggered that,” Dr Marks said. “That’s a remarkable push back in what’s been a very, very safe Labor seat.”

    More than 20,000 people have signed a petition calling for wind turbines along the northern beaches coastline to offset climate change — and it’s not the only suggestion.

    A tongue-in-cheek petition calling on the people of Warringah to install wind turbines along the foreshore of the northern beaches has gained more than 20,000 signatures.

    The change.org petition set up by Brendan Triffett is calling on new independent Warringah

    MP Zali Steggall and her supporters to show leadership on immediate climate change action.

    His petition proposes that she should install wind turbines along the beaches and headlands, “taking advantage of the sea breezes”.

    He has even gone to the trouble of mocking up a picture of how Manly Beach would look with wind turbines.

    “Zali Steggall and the people of Warringah need to show leadership on immediate climate change action,” Mr Triffett wrote in the petition.

    “Let’s do it for the children!”

    Ms Steggall’s main promise during the election campaign was taking action on climate change and in her victory speech she promised to be a “climate leader”.

    She unseated former Liberal prime minister Tony Abbott – who has been sceptical about policies to increase cuts to emissions – after 25 years.

    After clocking up more than 20,000 signatures in a week Mr Triffett suggested ideas to build on the momentum, including starting a petition to end the private ownership of vehicles in Warringah.

    “This is a unique opportunity to see how renewable energy might work on a small-scale level,” he wrote.

    “No use attempting a global overhaul before testing the idea locally.”

    It may safely be assumed Mr Triffett is not local considering he spelled Warringah wrong in his latest post.

    And, many of those signing are not local either judging by the comments.

    One, Andrew Zapoelli suggested Warringah residents should lead by example and disconnect themselves from the power grid.

    Pas Cappetta said an official sounding Government message should be sent out saying all the petrol stations in Warringah will be closed down.

    And, Mark Pinochet added that he would like to see pandas bred on the beaches.

    “I’d like to see a panda breeding program and enclosure built under the wind farm basically where all the cars used to drive,” he wrote.

    “With oil burning cars taken off the road and bamboo planted in the streets, pandas will be able to live in harmony.”

    Ms Steggall said the petition came about following a segment on Alan Jones’s radio show where wind turbines on the northern beaches were suggested.

    “It’s disappointing to see that this is the most productive they can be on a very important and serious issue,” she said.

    The outrage industry is gearing up for the Cardinal’s appeal. Apparently, a legal appeal is about to trigger a flood of calls to child abuse hotlines:

    Ballarat survivor Peter Blenkiron said everybody would have their own way of coping with the publicity.

    “There’s no hard and fast rule – by checking in with a counsellor, you can check what’s right for you, and have a structure and a plan around potential outcomes. This is just a bump in the road. With the right support, it doesn’t have to be a fall.”

    Mr Blenkiron encouraged anyone who might be affected to get an appointment with a counsellor if possible, or alternatively to check in with their GP – or to use helplines if necessary.

    “”Everybody is going to be different,” he said. “Don’t do it alone. If in doubt, reach out to somebody.”

    What nonsense. But as we know, there are no depths to which the professional outrage industry will not sink to ensure its continuing survival and funding.

    The Pastoralists and Graziers Association is talking up a “once-in-a-lifetime” commitment by Gina Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting to tap into the Fitzroy River to “supercharge” the cattle industry.

    According to the PGA, the proposal, that has already been discussed with State Government agencies, involves diverting water to an “off-take tank” when the river is in flood to irrigate feed for a big expansion of the herd on Ms Rinehart’s stations in the region.

    The proposal comes as the State Government continues to negotiate with traditional owners and other stakeholders over its election promise for a Fitzroy River National Park.

    Lamb prices going up two or three bucks a kilo at the saleyards shouldn’t make the supermarket price go up more than a few cents more than two or three bucks.

    Shouldn’t.

    The price for a leg of lamb won’t go under $10.99 until spring, but those dainty little lamb cutlets might get to 39.99 in the right retail outlets.

    The export weights making three hundred bucks all go overseas anyway, story is that a limited amount have a good margin even at ten bucks dressed in the yards.

    Interestingly, if you send a lamb/sheep dressing over 40 kilos to a meatworks to be processed on your private account, [ instead of hanging them up yourself]you get billed fifty bucks a head penalty charge because of the ‘extra work involved’. Then we see the works chasing superheavy export weights to three hundy plus.

    Bet there isn’t a fifty extra dollar charge on those.

    I have spent the last 10 minutes carefully studying KKK’s rig and l detect some flabbiness in the tricep area, some thigh cellulite and the dreaded “gunt”. Sadly her rig could do with some serious personal training and a Jenny Craig diet.

    If you cook mutton North of the 38th Parallel, the darkening of the sun that then occurs is the giant cloud of blowflies homing in on your feast.

    Blowies can sniff out cooking sheep meat from at least 100 kms away.

    Chanel No 5 for flies.

    There aint nuttin like Mutton.
    Best. meat.ever.

    Good choice for a curry … for the BBQ it’s not much chop.

    Difficult to get a good leg of mutton in the city though, and you need a big pot to fit it in.

    Don’t have a link, but it would seem the push is on to repatriate the remains of the Special Air Service Regiment siggo (Paul Deenehy?) who was gored to death by a rogue elephant, in Borneo, in the mid 1960’s.

  167. Knuckle Dragger

    RB,

    There couldn’t be gunt on KKK. Surely not.

    Maybe it was a poor fashion choice? Spanx spillage?

    Anything, anything but gunt.

    Gunt is the worst thing ever. A ladeee could have the most beautiful dial in human history, but you’d still kick her off a deserted island because of gunt.

  168. Pedro the Ignorant

    I live a sheltered life, and I will probably regret asking, but what is “gunt”?

  169. Knuckle Dragger

    Mounds of skulls on Nat Geo prior to footy stuff on Fox.

    Viking doco. Excellent stuff. No gunt to be found.

    Your speculation on the construction of KKK’s “rig”, as you put it, might lead to disappointment.

    Pedro,
    You are not alone. I looked it up.

    Gunt is slang for a fatty area below the belly button and above the pubic area of a woman, often as a result of childbirth, weight gain, or just having a totally normal body.

  180. Pedro the Ignorant

    I knew I would regret asking.

    I’d never heard the word “gunt” before. In my youth, when mini-skirts were a thing, “daylight factor”was an important attribute for the connoisseur.

    Frenched cutlets and flathead “tails” … fancy branding and priced accordingly.

    Still cheap when you get a roast, coupla days sandwiches and maybe a shepherds pie.

    Nice! Millennials probably need an explanation.

    There was no vehicle access to one primary school I attended, built as it was on the side of a mountain. 72 steps up and 72 down. The night-soil-man used to carry the cans down to his ‘waste disposal unit’

    This was an old story when I was a lad.
    Local shitcarters emptying their cans into the sea near where I grew up.(*)
    Very hot day and one of the “recycling crew” takes off his jacket and slings it over his shoulder.
    As he goes to pick up his next receptacle, his jacket slips and falls into the can.
    He fishes it out, and his mate exclaims “Jesus! You’re not going to wear that again are ya?”
    “Nah” he replies. “Course not. Just gettin’ me lunch out of the pocket.”
    .
    * Yes. That is what they did then. As a measure of the enduring damage, it is an area now up for UN certification for it’s cultural significance and pristine coastal landscape.

    No rain on the horizon in the Wheatbelt, talk of sacrificing a virgin to Gaia to bring it on, but the consensus is that it would be unlikely to find one in town.

    West Coast Eagles red hot for the flag, but possibly a bit of one eyed favouritism here.

    CZ 452 .22LR (Brno in a previous iteration) declared the best bolty .22 in the world. Much nodding of heads, with the exception of one barbarian who declared the US made Browning lever action BL22 superior. He will probably be ostracised forever for his heathen beliefs.

    Remember that when you’re in Cuba DrB, and carefully check the chocolate fudge and white wine before you consume it.

    Rationing, long queues and empty shelves in Cuba as the economy heads to recession (28 May)

    As long lines outside shops with mostly bare shelves are increasingly common in Cuba, and the government has indeed signaled that things are going from bad to worse, Havana is blasting president Donald Trump’s administration for the hardship and misery.

    Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, in a speech last month, accused the Trump administration of engaging in an “asphyxiating financial persecution that makes the import of goods and resources of primary necessity particularly difficult.”

    The degree to which new U.S. sanctions, due in part to Cuba’s support for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, have compounded its economic woes is open to debate.

    The economy had already stagnated in recent years in tandem with the implosion of strategic ally Venezuela, resulting in cuts in fuel and energy use by state entities and this year shortages of basic goods such as bread, chicken and eggs.

    Weirdly all the other countries around the Caribbean can feed themselves. Well, except Venezuela.

    When I visited relos in Jamaica some years ago my cousin showed me his chicken and ackee farm. Doing quite well, and he expected to make a decent profit even though Jamaica was pretty poor then, as now. Maybe if Cuba would allow farmers to make profits there too they might not have such shortages of chicken and eggs.
