  1. Oh come on

    Trying to figure out which word the spaminator objects to. NFI. Just google Beto “The Song Of The Cow”. Be prepared to be weirded out.

  2. Oh come on

    I need a butt-shine

    Right now

    Your are holy,

    Oh, sacred cow

    I thirst for you,

    Provide Milk

    Buff my balls,

    Love the Cow,

    Good fortune for those that do.

    Love me, breathe my feet,

    The Cow has risen.

    Wax my ass,

    Scrub my balls

    The Cow has risen,

    Provide Milk.

    Oh, Milky winder, sing for us once more

    Live your life, everlusting joy.

    Thr ust your ho oves up my ana lytic pas sage,

    Enjoy my fruits

    Provider of Cheese and other wonderful dairy products,

    We will cleanse your inner intestines.

    We will bathe in your Pungent Odor

    Gather cotton.

    Count my eyes,

    Smell my skin,

    Love the Scarecrow and the Milkman.

    I live only for eternity,

    Thirst for the undrinkable.

    Hold the heat,

    Praise the dough boy at the pizza shop.

    Love the Oxen dung!

    I love You Tube comments. From a video of Beto O Rourke’s poem having the piss taken out of it:

    I challenge you to watch the latest in flat earth propaganda. FLAT EARTH: To The Edge And Back.

    “Provide milk” should be the new “send bobs”

    A spirited rendition. The only thing missing are the finger snaps at the end.

  6. Old Lefty

    I was interested to spot this:

    https://www.sbs.com.au/news/twitter-clamps-down-on-hate-speech-targeting-religious-groups

    But I get the distinct impression that some animals are, as usual, more equal than others and that protecting Christians (esp.Catholics) and J3ws from vilification isn’t high on the agenda. After all, where would ‘our’ ABC, former Fairfax and our ‘universities’ get their staff without a record of such comment as part of their job applications? Might Ms Milligan have to clean up the comments on her Twitter feed? Out of the question!

  7. Oh come on

    Many angsty teens write appalling poetry. I wouldn’t hold that against anyone. However, there’s appalling teen poetry and then there’s appalling teen poetry that wouldn’t look out of place in a school shooter’s manifesto. Beto’s is in the latter group.

  8. Just discovered this is Naidoc “week” (feel free to call me “slow”)
    This explains the influx to my place over the past few days of no end of extremely entitled ill-mannered women – of slight suntanned hue.
    They’re almost as bad as corporate guests. (Corporates set the standard for the bottom of the pit for manners & behaviour)

  9. Mater

    Gee, I hope the tax cuts don’t negatively impact our social ‘services’.

    For the first time, a person with a disability has won the right to have a sex ther apist paid for under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), but advocates say the ruling does not go far enough.

    “Her response to her achievement of sexual release (to the extent to which she is able to obtain such release) as a result of the services of a specialised sex ther apist were described by the applicant in evidence which I accept as good for her mental wellbeing, her emotional wellbeing and her physical wellbeing,” the judgment reads.

    They have now that dickhead Hinch with his own program telling us his take on todays politics

    Visiting one of my brothers, who had it on, I discovered a new daytime TV channel today: Sky News — specifically, Chris Kenny between midday and 2pm.

    Compared with the garbage that followed: some lefty jerk, then David Speers. who isn’t leaving until early next year to host the Greenfilth Disinformation Hour on Their ABC on Sunday mornings.

    Sky News CEO Paul “Boris” Whittacker, who used to run the Paywallian, is making a yuuuge difference to the joint at Sky.

    Alas, the only thing that hasn’t changed is that the Paywallian doesn’t break stories; it just posits lazy narratives that space cadets could “report”. Meanwhile, a piranha-fish swam of SJW acitivists on the Paywallian’s fascist left SJW staff continues to make reader contributions that aren’t Stalinesque unpublishable.

    BoN, earlier:

    That’s quite an amazing conceptual leap, to reason that ‘because the other birds are safe taking food from the hands of a giant creature that I will be safe too’. Winter and hunger are very strong motivators.

    And on the topic of cockatoo behaviour, here’s an article from a couple days ago.

    Not a big leap, I would say. But your link to the dancing cocky was interesting.

    I think that they are pretty smart, and we must remember how long they live, and that they live in flocks. A cocky can live as long as a human, and knowledge is passed through to the young ‘uns. Also, I have mentioned before that they do not live for bread alone, but love to play with the toys that we so thoughtfully provide.

    Birds are an enigma, and the old fashioned term of calling a stupid person a ‘bird brain’ seems to be a misnomer. There is a lot, a huge amount, that we don’t know about the natural world. And, all those dickheads attaching trackers to, or catching and measuring, unfortunate creatures don’t add much to it.

    Larrison Campbell, a female reporter for the outlet Mississippi Today, wrote in a Tuesday column that Foster’s campaign manager informed her that “they believed the optics of the candidate with a woman, even a working reporter, could be used in a smear campaign to insinuate an extramarital affair.”

    True.

    Campbell wrote that she and her editors were puzzled by the request, given that, as an experienced reporter covering Mississippi politics, she had previously interviewed Foster on multiple occasions.

    If she’s truly puzzled, she’s a mad fucker and it is a miracle she hasn’t won a Darwin Award yet.

    Good on him.

    The old sailor walked wearily into the mission centre in Newcastle, hungry and eager to contact his family back in India. The months at sea had taken their toll, though the brief escape from his four cabin walls had already proven a tonic. He made himself at home, as he had been encouraged to do, serving himself some dinner and sitting down to eat. The food smelled delicious, and the soft chair eased his aching back.

    A man approached him. He had a pleasant smile, and looked as if he had something to say. He greeted him politely, they exchanged names, and then he said:

    You’re from India, right?

    The man nodded his confirmation. He was asked another question:

    Do you like cricket?

    His smile as he finished his mouthful told the enquirer all he needed to know; the sailor loved this about Australia, the shared passion for his sport.

    The man pointed toward another figure, just a few metres away.

    See that man there? That’s Rick McCosker.

    The old sailor looked. And looked again.

    Yes! Implored the man. That’s him – cricket man. Cricket man!

    He knew his cricket history. He tried to match the face in front of him with a grainy image in his mind of a head swathed in bandages, walking out to bat at the MCG.

    Could it really be the Rick McCosker? What on earth is he doing here?

    1969?

    This is from their 2006 tour, but the song was first recorded in 1966. If you look at the faces of some of the kids in the crowd, their grandparents may not have been born then.

    Cool stuff Mitch. So much speculation in the comments, even from the “sceptics”; just assume each village had a wise man, or that we’re all on the same technological arc?

    I’ve seen stuff suggesting that writing started the earliest in China maybe 8000 years ago, dogs were domesticated up to 36,000 year ago.

    Maybe we’ve had civilisations rise and fall up to a pre-industrial revolution level before a few times.

    Finding ancient walls in the US and Gobekli Tepe? The Celts and ancient Indians/Singhas created land bridges with very primitive tools. The Cahokian mounds were abandoned well before Europeans turned up.

    Welcome to the 7th century Australia.
    It’s hard to believe parents can do this to their child.

    (prolly paywalled)

    A Sydney schoolgirl has been rescued from an arranged marriage in Lebanon as she faced death for defying her family, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

    In a shocking twist, the 15-year-old was banished to Beirut to marry her cousin because her parents believed she was no longer “pure” after she was raped.

    NSW and federal police were in a race against time to get her home to Australia and safety after the brave teenager told her uncle she would never marry his son and he threatened to shoot her dead.

    The 40-year-old uncle, her father’s brother, then spent time in a Lebanese jail cell for drugging the girl and forcing her to have sex.

    The big problem is that humans loved to live by the seashore so many ancient areas of occupation are under water. There is a Black Sea archaeology group, it will be interesting to see what comes out of that. Those mysterious structures in the seas off Japan. Aqua archaeology is near non-existent. There is a find in Blombos cave of some geometric shapes on a rock using pigment going back 75,000 years. There is evidence of mining going back at least 15,000 years. The trend line is clear, 20 years ago it argued on the basis of genetic analyses, which I believe are trusted far too much, that humans left Africa only 60,000 years ago.

  116. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    the early dispersal of Homo sapiens out of Africa not only occurred earlier, before 200,000 years ago, but also reached further geographically, all the way to Europe

    Yes, new skull remains can help re-set the pattern of migrations, no doubt more frequent than we thought and some of which must have failed via the death of all migrating populations. Genetics is only one part of the possible trail; there are others. Still all very speculative.

  117. Memoryvault

    The Vedas teach that humans have been here for a very, very long time. We devel0p to a certain point then basically destroy ourselves. In the beginning we were entities of pure light (energy) but with each rebirth we developed lower, more solid, three dimensional forms.

    Apparently we are the eighth and final cycle – humans in the lowest, most base form. According to the Vedas there is no “next time” – this is it. So enjoy it while it lasts.

    Mark A – I read the Telegraph article and it seemed to say that the NSW Police investigated the girl’s case at one stage as a forced marriage but dropped because it was an “arranged” marriage and the girl did not want to see her parents in trouble.

    So a 14 year old girl is OK in an arranged marriage but not in a forced marriage?
    Whilst NSW and Federal police deserve credit for rescuing both girls from Beirut, the original marriage arrangements should have sparked some sort of charge by the Police against the parents.

    The parents are such decent, upright, caring members of Australian society. Their daughter is raped repeatedly by her uncle, left bloodied, threatened with death by him, flown to Australia to escape – only for the wonderful parents to take the girl straight to their GP for an examination to check again if she was “pure”.

    Still, it’s OK because that’s their culture and custom. Get used to it.

    Sorry mv, that is Sympathy for the Devil from Beggars Banquet, an unremarkable LP that followed on from the even more forgetable Satanic Majesties in 67. The Stones only hit their straps in 69 with Gimme Shelter and Get Your Ya Yas Out. But then, Sticky Fingers (71) surpassed all.

    :Yes, well anyway Ken, when I said you could be a Minister it didn’t mean you could have a budget, and make up policy and stuff. So as a consequence, here’s the lead story in The Australian tomorrow morning:”

    Scott Morrison will veto any move to enshrine an Aboriginal “voice to parliament” in the Constitution, urging his government to pursue indigenous recognition without supporting all the recommendations in the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

    The Australian has been told the Prime Minister remains ­opposed to enshrining the voice in the Constitution, a move he ­declared last year would create a “third chamber” to parliament.

    Minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt, who was elevated to cabinet by Mr Morrison after the election, declared in a landmark speech on Wednesday that the government would consider creating a voice to parliament through legislation, and left the door open to enshrining it in the Constitution.

    Senior government sources said yesterday Mr Morrison would not support a constitutionally enshrined indigenous advisory body.

    “PM?”

    “Yes Ken?”

    “Could I be Minister for Defence? I mean, I could cock up that pesky submarine contract in a month, given my record so far.”

    The other observation was that after training I remained warm for the rest of the day, so much so that I had to turn the aircond down a couple of degrees. This morning I found my waking temperature was about .3 degrees above normal.

    Well colour me surprised, Cats, I finally got a version of the “numbered nations” letter to the editor into a newspaper.
    Today’s Gold Coast Bulletin…

    The Editor

    Ken Wyatt, (GCB, 11/7), you’ve got to be kidding; we just had an election and the LNP didn’t win on your destructive and divisive referendum platform.

    Appropriating the Canadian term “First Nations” and applying it to modern day aboriginal people throws up some fascinating legal implications.

    Since accurate history has been largely displaced by the revisionist version in the “woke” narrative, we’d best begin with the facts.

    There were three waves of human migration to Australia via the now-submerged northern land-bridge between 40,000 and 15,000 years ago.

    First were the Negritoes, from south-east Asia. They found vacant land and built Australia’s “First Nations”.

    The Negritoes were conquered by the Murrayians, related to the Ainu of Japan. The Murrayians built Australia’s “Second Nations”. Remnant Murrayians still live in the Northern Territory.

    The Murrayians were conquered by the Carpentarians, related to the Vedda of Sri Lanka. The Carpentarians built the “Third Nations”.

    Then came sea-going Europeans. They displaced the Carpentarians, defeated them in scattered battles, became the new land owners, and built the “Fourth Nations”.

    This is where it gets interesting, Ken. If you’re correct about “Nations”, then our early leaders incorrectly applied the principle of terra nullius by assuming no “Nations” were present.

    That means the Mabo decision has been incorrectly applied to mainland Australia.

    Given that “land rights” aren’t available to a conquered “nation”, there’s no case for land rights anywhere on the mainland. None whatsoever.

    So, Ken, would you please sort that mess out before going any further with your referendum idea?

    Also managed to get a piece on sea-level rises into today’s Townsville paper…

    The Editor

    “Global warming” started 26,500 years ago, the day after the ‘Last Glacial Maximum’ peaked. The humans back then had a stone-age lifestyle and produced little “carbon”. Nonetheless the warming continued.

    21,000 years ago the northern continental ice sheets started melting and the seas started rising. The fastest sea-level rise, known as ‘Meltwater Pulse 1A’, happened 14,700 years ago. Seas rose 40 to 60 millimetres per year – 40 times the current rate of rise.

    The rising seas flooded both Bass Strait and Torres Strait, cutting off Tasmania and New Guinea from the Australian mainland. However, 7,000 years ago the rate of rise levelled off dramatically.

    Professor Geoffrey Blainey recently explained that the stone-age humans of the time had no trouble adapting to these changes in their coastlines. Some Australian aboriginal people still have the story-songs telling of the loss of coastal plains to the sea, and hills becoming isolated as islands.

    The rate of sea-level rise has been a steady 1.5 millimetres per year for over a century now. There cannot be rapid sea-level rise again because there isn’t enough continental ice to melt. The Antarctic cannot be melted as it is insulated by the circumpolar current, and Greenland’s ice is trapped inside coastal mountains.

    Even if there was ice available to melt, rising seas are still a non-issue. Low-lying towns can build dykes like the Dutch do, or they can jack up their buildings and roads a couple of metres as the city of Chicago did in the 1850s and ‘60s.

    We have never been better able to deal with changes in sea level. So why do people get hysterical about it? It is manufactured specifically to support the politico-religious global warming cult. When you see someone fretting about rising seas you can be certain they’re a brainwashed cultist.

    If anything, the levelling-off of sea-level rise is the worry. It means the warm cycle is ending and we’re heading back to the deadly grip of the next inevitable ice age. Time to build some nuclear reactors – for our children’s and grandchildren’s sake.

    For the West Australian readers interested in property rights, this media release from the Gingin Property Rights Group, maybe of interest.

    “The Parliamentary Inquiry by the Legislative Council’s Standing Committee on Public Admin- istration is an opportunity for land owners to have their say on Government procedures that blight their property rights”, claims President of the Gingin Private Property Rights Group (Inc), Murray Nixon.
    On June 12th the Legislative Council gave support to a Motion moved by Hon Rick Mazza: That the House:
    (a) recognises the fundamental propriety right of private property ownership that underpins the social and economic security of the community;
    (b) recognises the threat to the probity of the Torren title system, which guarantees disclosure, and re-establishes the necessity for registration of all encumbrances that affect land including environmentally sensitive areas, bushfire- prone areas and implied easements for Western Pow- er that currently sit behind the certificate of title;
    (c) recognises the property rights of government-issued licences and authorities including com- mercial fishing;
    (d) asserts that fair and reasonable compensation must be paid to the owner of private property if the value of the property is diminished by a government encumbrance or resumption in order to derive a public benefit;
    (e) directs the Standing Committee on Public Administration to conduct an inquiry into the mat- ters described above – with them as terms of reference – and report to the house within nine months of the date of referral
    The Federal Government has made many International Agreements with little or no reference to the State Governments that have the Constitutional reasonability for land management. These include the Kyoto and Paris Agreements on Climate Change, the Ramsar Agreement, protecting wetlands of International importance for migratory birds, The Biodiversity agreement protecting rare and endangered Flora and Fauna.
    Complementary legislation by the States has often put financial hardship on rural land owners whose normal business activities have been restricted, particularly on farms. Whilst there is a clause in the Federal Constitution, ensuring property can only be acquired on just terms, there is no similar clause in the State Constitution, which is mainly concerned with the election of a sov- ereign Parliament. This has often meant that environmental legislation has blighted property rights, but no compensation has been available to the land owner.
    The issue has been the subject to Parliamentary scrutiny for at least twenty years.

    Trump live at the event on social media and the internet here.

    Starts at about 40 mins in.

    He’s having a great time, cracking jokes and serving it up to the luvvies.

    OMG, Trump just called Marsha Blackburn ‘honey.’ Cue outrage from the usual suspects, but not from Marsha. 🙂

  178. Old School Conservative

    Well done Cardimona.

    Loved Mike Lester this morning. Rita Panahi had something on the same subject earlier this week.

    Let’s see the thick-fingered, shouty sweary purple-haired world champions at gentle-jogging-around-a-soccer-field actually work on parity with their penis-bearing counterparts. They’d be in houso flats eating dog food in two weeks.

    Pull your collective heads in, girls, or someone will threaten to sic the local under 15 team on you again.

    That’ll put you back in your box. Or more accurately, back in your teammates’ boxes.

    Booing at the Sydney Opera House when Welcome to country is performed.
    Cue immediate cries of “bogans” and “racists”.
    George Orwell would be proud of his correct predictions. Group think is now self-imposed.

    Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremonies are done in culturally appropriated clothing . Aboriginals did not wear any clothing and used to cover children in grease to keep them warm . Temperatures must have been warmer here 250 years ago as sometmes they wore animal skins ,fur inside for warmth.
    Therefore I want a law that says that they must do these ceremonies traditionally that us covered in a lot of ochrre and nothing else. Ken Wyatt to turn up in his possum cape and nothing else.
    Welcome to the country cwremonies were introduced by Ernie Dingo when the Maori Football team noted there was nothing like the Haka here.
    As these ceremonies have a charge to be performed I believe we have the right to demand ther come traditionally dressed .
    Wonder how long before there were no takers to perform ?

  182. None

    Excellent letters Cardimonia.

  183. None

    Mark A continues his racist fantasy.

    BG’s unexcellent nonadventure: watching the cleaning lady and not realising that even a 14 year old is taking the piss out of a dirty old gringo perv.

    Kenny wearing nappies to the GG’s joint would be a sight not to see.

  186. Old School Conservative

    Welcome to country ceremonies are just so passé today, which is why Smoking Ceremonies have been included to ramp up the effect on spectators.
    I wonder what new tradition will be invented next?

    Matt Gaetz tears House Dems a new one

    I loved some of the leftist responses – like a checklist of leftist tactics dealing with rake instantiated facial injuries.

    The wild ad hom attempt at distraction, completely ignoring the fact they have just been exposed as hypocrites and ploughing on (the illegal immigration is a real problem caused by climate change), wild accusations of breaking the law (without citing any), and just insisting with the original unsupported claim.

    Lefties – always bringing feelz to a logic fight.

    More apartheid……….

    Hobart City Council’s community, culture and events committee voted last night to consider the development of a series of signs at key access points as part of the council’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

    The signs would provide a welcome message in the native language of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community/Palawa people and/or an acknowledgment of the traditional custodians of the land.

    Who’s gunna be able to read tem? Might as well be written Latin.

  189. John Constantine

    Frenzy from India cricket tragics as the claim explodes that Dhoni was run out on a delivery where a kiwi fields man was in breach of fielding restrictions, therefore it was a no bawl.

    Batsmen have been run out legally off no bawls forever, but truthfulness isn’t always helpful.

  190. John Constantine

    Demands the kiwis be rubbed out like Smith and Warner, if not executed for crimes against humanity.

    Waiting for reports of the umpires houses immolation.

  191. Up The Workers!

    Thanks Tom.

    Branco’s the top toon today, by my reckoning.

    Old Bonking Billy KKKlinton may well claim never to have had sexual relations with any of Epstein’s young girls, but I’m betting that the cigars in his humidor, can all claim to have close DNA matches to several of them.

    I wonder whether he looks after his precious health by pulling a condom over his cigars before he smokes them? Might explain why he’s so red in the face, these days.

  192. johanna

    Just finished watching Trump’s introduction to the social media summit at the White House.

    It was very entertaining, in the rambling style that drives his opponents crazy, with lots of jokes, including about himself and his hair. In amongst all the fluff were some heavy duty torpedoes aimed at the Masters of the Universe.

    They should be vewwy, vewwy afwaid. He knows that they are trying to undermine his re-election chances, and is not amused. It is like getting between a State Premier and a pot of money – not a good place to be.

    OMG, Trump just called Marsha Blackburn ‘honey.’ Cue outrage from the usual suspects,

    It will be construed by the scolds assembled as a subliminal grope.

    Patrick Cross for me this morning.

    And Ben Garrison banned by agreement from the Whitehouse for being anti-Semitic because he lampooned the monster soros. This accusation was made by the demorats, the party of the woman who married her brother and who reviles J.ws and Isra.l regularly while praising the RoP, the snake faced omar.

    This came up about a year ago. Here is a “prospective” sign appearing on the Cat at the time.

    What does none-sense think about this? Is Trump using his high office to demean a wimmenses?

    Senator Marsha Blackburn (R. Tenn.), recently elected, is very switched on about social media scams and lies. She’s a Southern lady who fought like a tiger to come from 10 points behind to 12 points in front. She and The Donald get on like a house on fire.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if she called him ‘sweetcakes.’ 🙂

  197. Mark A/OSC:

    How many go unnoticed undetected/ignored even by police?

    Does the name Tommy Robinson ring a bell?
    Does the term Cultural Genocide ring the same bell?
    We are lead by people who would fit the term ‘treasonous’ if it were legal to call them that.

  198. Megan

    Hobart is slow to catch on, Toad. Banyule and Nillumbik councils have had said signs for the last five years. Wominjeka! Or…Womin Jeka. There has been some debate as to which is correct and Nillumbik are about to spend rate payers hard earned by changing them all.

    No written Aboriginal language . At least we can read Latin in Pompei on the walls where the graffiti boys had a go
    Cum Caeser in hibernia gallia erat.

  200. Bruce of Newcastle

    SH – That’d give the Risdon inmates something to do…making lots of big road signs.

  201. Percy Popinjay

    The signs would provide a welcome message in the native language of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community/Palawa people and/or an acknowledgment of the traditional custodians of the land.

    Who’s gunna be able to read them?

    50% of Taxmanians wouldn’t be able to read the signs if they were written in English.

    Thanks Tom, this is gold. Biden really is the gift that keeps on giving.

    The Washington Post takes on the important topics of the day.

    ‘The Lion King’ is a fascistic story. No remake can change that.

    I dunno, writing in a transsexual hyena identifying as a male lion would go a long way to overcoming this problem.

  204. Infidel Tiger

    I always thought the Lion King was about African pride.

  205. Geriatric Mayfly

    Hobart is slow to catch on, Toad.

    At least one approach to Ballarat sports a huge sign announcing your arrival on Native lands and another to mark your exit on leaving. The km wide strip between the two is currently no man’s land. The colourful signage is in English with Abo translations. Neither a border patrol as yet, nor a Customs’ House. The new Parliamentary Voice might opt for a simple ticket and barrier affair which will spit out a visa, after insertion of the requisite fee.
