    The only issue relevant to knife man is allens snackbar; of all the fucking things a loon can yell out when he’s on his knife rampage the loon sticks to allens snackbar. Strange innit?

    The rule of law must always prevail; if one disagrees then conscientiously object in a non-violent manner or work legislatively to change it but never take the law into your own hands in a retributional or violent fashion or encourage others to do so – that way lies madness.

    On this basis, Lexington was a domestic terrorist attack? Or the patriots would invoke common law self defence?

    In absolutely unsurprising news, the scrote who stole a Commodore and was in it when it smacked into a family going about their business has been given bail.

    Jack Ledlin had earlier threatened to set fire to the court house during a previous bail application. He wanted to see his girlfriend – whose name, of course, is Dakoda – who’s in a critical condition with spinal injuries.

    He can’t live at home though, and has to live with his aunt while breathing fresh air. Ledlin’s doting daddy Anthony was arrested last night on warrants and is on remand.

    The good bit is, two other crooks in the stolen car are right this second mouldering away in the Dandenong morgue.

    No sex then, of any variety. Nor love is love, because you can’t get more stereotypical than that.

    Norway is very happy because they drill lots of oil and gas wells.
    Which also makes them very wealthy.

    True, Nob. And they don’t give a fig what fjord they ruin to put them in. Plenty of fjords in Norway, they reason. We quickly found they are not greenies when it comes to their healthy wealth.

    Are you back in Stavanger, or Bergen? Or elsewhere? One thing we often forget about Norway is that the population of the whole country is not much bigger than Sydney’s.

    There is the rule of law, there is outright rebellion, and then there is revolution.
    Them’s the breaks. 1775 and All That.
    Picking up a pickaxe and slamming it into someone’s head is not legal. Trotsky found that out, as recipient, but he belonged to quite a criminal set should truth be told. Wussia knocking off a few problems in Salisbury is not legal either. Nor is one individual citizen murdering another within a State of Law because he or she wishes for whatever reason to do so. Self-defense has to be proven, and is legal.

    This class of barren bugman children will float away without leaving permanent mark.

    Interested to read in The Oz that two members of the public who restrained Ney acted out of their Christian conviction that they should help others. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the ABC to report that. Down the memory hole with their pin-up p3rverts Richard Neville and his p3d3rast mates, Jon Stephens and Carl Beech.

    Their ABC last night reported on the lone mentally ill man in the Sydney CBD who had shown interest in the Christchurch Terrorist Attack and other atrocities.

    https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/migration-under-review-amid-growing-congestion-concerns-20190813-p52gks.html

    The Morrison government will launch a powerful inquiry into Australia’s migration program, opening the door to further cuts in immigrant numbers and moves to push more migrants into the regions to take pressure off congested areas in Sydney and Melbourne.

    The comprehensive review, to be led by Parliament’s joint migration committee, which usually examines the nation’s detention centres and visa laws, will take in population and infrastructure pressures. It comes a day after Infrastructure Australia warned the cost of lost productivity due to congestion would double to $38.8 billion by 2031 if the government did not act.

    The science is settled. Australia’s productivity crisis will never resolve until we halve immigration. It is time for pro-immigration cranks to admit defeat and get out of the way!

    And pushing migrations into the boonies won’t work – they will all nick of to the cities as soon as they can.

    Gretel’s slap in the face to evil Big Plane

    Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is scheduled to set sail from the British city of Plymouth to attend a series of climate summits and protests in the United States.
    Thunberg, 16, who refuses to fly because of the CO2 that aviation emits, will be travelling from Wednesday on the Malizia, a racing yacht captained by German sailor Boris Herrmann and Pierre Casiraghi of Monaco.
    Thunberg plans to attend the UN Climate Action Summit in New York on September 23 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, as well as climate protests planned for September 20 and 27.

    Quite impressive the way she got together with a few friends and whittled an ocean going yacht out of some naturally fallen logs with a few leaves and bark. She’s doing surprisingly well without using any fossil fuels … I didn’t expect her to get it finished on time.

  40. Fisky

    Morrison will be forced to cut immigration next year. He’s holding out till the May budget, desperate to show a fake surplus, but he’ll have to cut immigration more or less immediately after that with the recession coming. Once we tip over the edge, there’s nothing to lose from immigration reduction. State budgets are getting smashed from infrastructure costs, so we have no choice.

    A ban on ads featuring “harmful gender stereotypes” or those which are likely to cause “serious or widespread offence” came into force in June.

    Anyone else in mining had a visit from the inspectors lately?

    Frolicking, Queensland went through an explosion of this a decade ago during the boom when the likes of BHP & CMFEU I can only suspect saw it as way to cull smaller operations that could be a threat or not Union friendly but it was adding on in good times to a regulatory regime was probably needed from the crackdown in the ’90s when mine safety wasn’t good. BHP were one of the main drivers, I used to wonder at how the stupidest rules from BHP sites suddenly being enacted or legislated all across Queensland sites. Bladed knife on a multi-tool ban being one that even BHP workers used to snigger at. That fool Lynham was at it again recently. The new one in Queensland is an explosion of these workplace medicals that go above & beyond the Coal Board medical which was 18 pages long when I last did it. Can see this is how they will cull older workers out of the system while at the same time cry foul about a “skills shortage”.

    The vast bulk of water use is by industry. 62% by agriculture alone. About 20% or less is used by households.

    We currently export enough food to feed 30 million people around the world. The idea that immigration would cause water bills to rise 400% is total bullshit, simply because the present exported food would be redirected toward domestic consumption.

    Argue against immigration for other reasons, but not because immigration would raise water consumption to the point where it causes a 400% hike in water bills. That just sounds silly.

    Australian water consumption was 19,000 gigalitres (or the equivalent of 38 Sydney Harbours) in 2013-14 … Agricultural water use represents 62 per cent of Australia’s total water consumption, with most being used in irrigation.Oct 17, 2016

    Instead of dumping fresh water unused into the south australian salt water estuary, it could run down the north south pipeline into melbourne.

    Effectively their andrews government is running the desalinisation plant to pour fresh water out to sea in south australia.

    Best use would to be to run the north south pipeline during flood events north of the dividing range to top up melbournes dams.

    Victorian Farmers Federation water council chairman Richard Anderson said irrigators would be more willing to see the pipeline used in wet years when water was plentiful.

    “It makes sense, especially if irrigators can use it as a trade-off against Melbourne taking water in a drought,” he said.

    Melbourne’s water retailers share ownership of 75,000ML in Goulburn entitlements, which they gained for investing $300 million in the Goulburn Murray Water Connections irrigation modernisations works.

    Victorian Water Minister Lisa Neville’s office said the Government’s “stance on the north-south (pipeline) has not changed”. “The desal plant has secured Melbourne’s water supply into the future and we won’t be transferring water away from farmers in the north to Melbourne,” Ms Neville said.

    One former water bureaucrat told The Weekly Times he had taken the idea of using the pipeline in wet years to Minister Neville’s advisers in 2015, but “I got nothing out of them”.

    It is as silly as it is insulting. With an annual contribution of more than $1 billion, Australia is by far the largest aid donor to the Pacific, providing more than the US, China, Japan and New Zealand combined. So we should, as a former colonial power and the strongest regional economy it is our responsibility and in our interests.

    I wonder if Kenny typed the bolded part as habitual genuflexion or if he has really given it thought.

    Just for the moment let’s pretend Australia was a colonial power of any significance and acknowledge that we are the strongest regional economy. How does this translate into an obligation to grant aid?

    Well we could adhere to our Christian traditions, but since society itself is happy to overturn those that argument is a little threadbare.

    What is the sin of colonialism? A lot of nations have gone gangbusters thanks to the experience. The idea that it was all about rapini and killing should not survive past university. The expansion of influence and gaining territory is as old as humanity itself. And so is accepting it when a power recedes or is eclipsed. It becomes the new you.

    I notice the Tuvalunatics are demanding the right to go back to grass skirts huts.

    And we have a strong economy. So? How do they have a claim to the fruit of Australia’s efforts? America is bigger than us. Do they suddenly have a debt to pay?

    Anything they get from us is a gift from us. A matter of us following our own sense of right.

    It actually has absolutely nothing to do with them.

    If we decided to give them nothing (for the sake of argument) then there would be no other imperative to give them anything.

    Water runs downhill, not uphill.
    Water is hideously expensive to move across catchments.

    Just because there is water being used for irrigation in NSW doesn’t mean it could be simply be switched over to run out of a tap in melbourne. Not if it has to run uphill to get there. Australias major fresh water resources aint anywhere near the cities that are planned to go to ten million people.

    Unless magic spells that make water run uphill are invented, or australias irrigation districts are rewilded and multiple north south pipelines are built with pumping stations, rationing will happen.

    On the confession thing.
    Years ago I remember the plot of an Aussie cop show involving someone confessing to a serious crime in the Catholic confessional to cast suspicion on someone else.
    I can’t remember the exact context, but the priest called the cops to inform.
    OK, the plot was a bit contorted but one line sticks with me.
    The fictional priest said that the confessor was middle-aged but got the confessional rite totally down pat.
    He thought it sounded suss, as most regular confessors tended to slightly tweak the precise wording.
    I guess my point is that an experienced priest would spot a Fatty plant a mile off, and hopefully challenge them to cinfess publicly.
    It would get awkward if a priest conformed with the law and dobbed the plant in and no charges resulted.

    The S&P is currently trading just a tad under 16 times trailing earnings. On yesterday’s close that basically means the S&P makes about 182 bucks a share (6%) … (1/16 X 2926 = $182).

    Warren would halve that…. halve $182. She would also halve the multiple. All being equal the current Dow of ~26,000 would end up 6700. The Dow would fall 75% by the time she was in her 2 second year.

  135. John Constantine

    Terry Pratchett on capillary action [ plus Granny.]

    It wasnt a promising place. The old oak planks had been down here in the darkness all these years, away from the clock of the seasons . . .

    On the other hand . . . Granny had said that somehow all trees were one tree, or something like that. Magrat thought she understood it, although she didnt know exactly what it meant. And it was springtime up there. The ghost of life that still lived in the wood must know that. Or if it had forgotten, it must be told.

    She put her palms flat on the door again and shut her eyes, tried to think her way out through the stone, out of the castle, and into the thin, black soil of the mountains, into the air, into the sunlight . . .

    The Fool was merely aware that Magrat was standing very still. Then her hair stood out from her head, gently, and there was a smell of leafmould.

    And then, without warning, the hammer that can drive a marshmallow-soft toadstool through six inches of solid pavement or an eel across a thousand miles of hostile ocean to a particular pond in an upland field, struck up through her and into the door.

    She stepped back carefully, her mind stunned, fighting against a desperate urge to bury her toes into the rock and put forth leaves. The Fool caught her, and the shock nearly knocked him over.

    Magrat sagged against the faintly jingling body, and felt triumphant. She had done it! And with no artificial aids! If only the others could have seen this . . .

    Dont go near it, she mumbled. I think I gave it rather . . . a lot. The Fool was still holding her toastrack body in his arms and was too overcome to utter a word, but she still got a reply.

    I reckon you did, said Granny Weatherwax, stepping out of the shadows. I never would have thought of it myself.

    Magrat peered at her.

    Youve been here all the time?

    Just a few minutes. Granny glanced at the door. Good technique, she said, but its old wood. Been in a fire, too, I reckon. Lot of iron nails and stuff in there. Cant see it working, Id have tried the stones if it was me, but—

    She was interrupted by a soft pop.

    There was another, and then a whole series of them together, like a shower of meringues.

    Behind her, very gently, the door was breaking into leaf.

    Granny stared at it for a few seconds, and then met Magrats terrified gaze.

    Run! she yelled.

    They grabbed the Fool and scurried into the shelter of a convenient buttress.

    The door gave a warning creak. Several of its planks twisted in vegetable agony and there was a shower of rock splinters when nails were expelled like thorns from a wound, ricocheting off the stonework. The Fool ducked as part of the lock whirred over his head and smashed into the opposite wall.

    The lower parts of the planks extended questing white roots, which slithered across the damp stone to the nearest crack and began to auger in. Knotholes bulged, burst and thrust out branches which hit the stones of the doorway and tumbled them aside. And all the time there was a low groan, the sound of the cells of the wood trying to contain the surge of raw life pounding through them.

    If it had been me, said Granny Weatherwax, as part of the ceiling caved in further along the passage, I wouldnt have done it like that. Not that Im objecting, mind you, she said, as Magrat opened her mouth. Its a reasonable job. I think you might have overdone it a bit, thats all.

    Excuse me, said the Fool.

    I cant do rocks, said Magrat.

    Well, no, rocks is an acquired taste—

    Excuse me.

    The two witches stared at him, and he backed away.

    Werent you supposed to be rescuing someone? he said.

    Oh, said Granny. Yes. Come on, Magrat. Wed better see what shes been getting up to.

    There were screams, said the Fool, who couldnt help feeling they werent taking things seriously enough.

    I daresay, said Granny, pushing him aside and stepping over a writhing taproot. If anyone locked me in a dungeon, thered be screams.

    That’s the caterpillary effect, which beats gravitiness.

    This is correct. It all serves the process of photogenesis. That is why people think trees and forests are lovely to look at when in reality if you go into one they are cold, wet, covered in dirt, crawling with insects as disturbingly varied as Borg prosthetics, and so much uniform in every direction that people get lost.

    Great piece with some informative graphs.
    Goes some of the way to explain Anzakery and myths such as “every Nasho was a volunteer”.
    From the link –

    The researchers surveyed people from eight former Allied countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, New Zealand, Russia/USSR, the UK and the US) and three former Axis powers (Germany, Italy and Japan). As might be expected, people from the winning Allied side ranked their own countries highly, and the average percentage responses added up to 309%. Citizens of the UK, US and Russia all believed their countries had contributed more than 50% of the war effort and were more than 50% responsible for victory.
    You might suspect that the losing Axis powers, whose historical record is inextricably tied to the immeasurable human suffering of the war, might not be so proud. As former US president John F Kennedy said (echoing the Roman historian Tacitus): “Victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan.” Perhaps the results for the Allied countries just reflect a general human tendency to claim credit for positive achievements. Yet citizens of the three Axis powers also over-claim shares of the war effort (totalling 140%). Rather than minimising their own contribution, even defeated nations seem to overstate their role.

    On 29 March 2018, Yousafzai returned to Pakistan for the first time since the shooting. Meeting Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, she gave a speech in which she said it had been her dream to return “without any fear”. Yousafzai then visited her hometown Mingora in Swat Valley. The APPSF, a group representing the 173,000 private schools in Pakistan, organised “I am not Malala Day” on 30 March.

    Further to the US cartoons this morning, anyone interested in buying a slightly used flying brothel, or an island heavily contaminated with bodily fluids may want to read this story:

    ‘Orgy Island’ to airplanes, Epstein’s assets are up for grabs

    What fate awaits the Epstein empire of things?

    While federal prosecutors had endeavored to seize the assets after his arrest as part of the criminal probe, that’s now over; the criminal proceeding cannot be leveled against the deceased.

    “The federal government can’t likely take anything from him because he wasn’t convicted of a crime and can’t be tried now that he’s dead. He enjoys the presumption of innocence forever because he can’t defend himself in a criminal trial,” criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten said. “He is most certainly, however, subject to civil actions aimed squarely at slicing up the assets in his estate.”

    Could be quite a scrum, seeing that Epstein wanted to spread his DNA far and wide. Hence:

    There’s also a website that surfaced this week – EpsteinHeirs.com

    “If you believe you may have given birth to a child fathered by the late JEFFREY EPSTEIN who recently committed suicide, or that he may have been your biological father, please contact us immediately, without delay!!” a notice on the site read.

    This is going to be a journalistic gold mine for years.

  206. Knuckle Dragger

    I must say I’m a bit gobsmacked by the whole confessional thing.

    First, unless things have vastly changed in recent (all right, many) years you don’t have to be a member of a particular parish to go to confession. You can just find out when it’s on and rock up. The priest wouldn’t have the first clue who it was.

    And even if he did, does anyone really think Father X would walk into the cop shop and say ‘I just took confession from a bloke who says (note – says, no further evidence) he did X Y and Z, and I reckon he sounds like Mr Jones from down the street.’

    Yes, you can have voice evidence as identification evidence. Yes, it’s admissible, but only as part of a line up, similar to a bunch of punters standing in a line to be picked out. No, it’s not compelling. No, it’s highly unsafe to convict on that basis.

    Yes, the punter may be lying, or trying it on to see what happens. And yes, it would be extremely difficult to admit it as anything corroborative.

    Another thought bubble with no practical grounding. Who’d have thought?

    Numpty Numbers showing up a lot this morning … guess Johno must have displeased him, now the rest of us get collective punishment.

    On a more interesting topic, there’s photos of Epstein being taken by ambulance into New York hospital. This was from the Mirror UK:

    Photos have emerged showing paramedics desperately trying to revive millionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein after he was found clinging to life in his jail cell.

    The disgraced financier, who was once friends with Prince Andrew, Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, is seen being wheeled into a New York hospital shortly after he apparently attempted suicide weeks after being taken off suicide watch.

    Epstein’s eyes are closed and he is wearing an orange prison jumpsuit as he lay on a gurney while a paramedic pumps a handheld resuscitator.

    Does that mean he was NOT dead in his jail cell? The Mirror seems to think so. Or do they hire paramedics too stupid to figure out that a man is dead already?

    Other papers simply reported that he was already dead … I guess they made that bit up.

    I see in today’s Murdoch fish-and-chip wrapper, that Dodgy Dan from Victoriastan is in the poo again – this time over his support for his good mate, Victorian Trades Hall Secretary, Luke Hilakari, over Hilakari’s open and overt support of Dodgy Dan’s boss, John Setka of the C.F.M.M.E.U.

    Hilakari, unfortunately, is a longstanding member of the A.L.P.’s “Family Violence Social Services Taskforce”. (About as sensible as appointing Setka as Chairman of the Socialist under-12’s girls Ballet School, or of the Radical Lesbian Feminist Knitters Circle).

    Dodgy Dan and Hilakari are both great friends and both pee copiously into Boss Setka’s pot. Dodgy Dan ambiguously said that the A.L.P. Family Violence Social Services Taskforce no longer meets because it has been superseded by the government’s own ‘historic family violence reforms’.

    Given the embarrassing recent family violence charges against Dodgy Dan and Hilakari’s mutual pal, I wonder which side of the “family violence fence” they actually sit on now?

    It seems there’s only one way out.

    Dodgy Dan of Victoriastan,
    Send Hilakari to the Knackery!
