    Mark A – I think I read it once, some time ago. As to dynamite, the fun thing with nitrocellulose is the first fifty factories making it in Europe all exploded. But it was such good stuff they kept on building more factories and they kept on exploding, until they worked out how to stabilize it properly. That’s what I recall anyway.

    You’re always looking for the cheap way out. You’re such a freaking cheapskate. Even for a penis enlargement and you head to Bunnings.! FFS man, you earned decent money in your corporate job history. Splurge a little. Obviously, you want a bigger old fella, spend the bucks you can afford and see a properly trained penis enlargement doc. DIY/Bunnings is not always the answer to everything.

    I watched NRL360 tonight where a bunch of league journo’s & players get together to discuss stuff.
    Keeping in mind they are all boosters for certain parties (player managers especially followed by news limited interests), but they were all making the case that Folau should be allowed to play league.
    Not just for Tonga, but in the NRL.

    Last time I saw something remotely like that was in Goroka.
    A touch fanatical grunt with whom we shared a shack in Kashmir developed a mutual dislike with our Paki Army minder Kaleel. K deserved his dislike but he drove our mate insane.
    After one night when K slipped his minders to come to our shack to suck our wiskey , our mate flipped and produced the, then common, postcard of a Goroka maiden suckling her baby on one breast and her piglet on the other.
    K melted down. Our UN unemployment dole Scando colleagues and the standard issue Polish commo spy, tore around the room looking for the UN Rep to execute our Mate.

    We? We pissed ourselves.

  35. cohenite

    It was a unanimous decision by the Supreme Court. I’m not across the nuances. However, I read that the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011. Section 6(1) of the Act specifically states that the monarch’s power to prorogue Parliament is not affected by the Act.

    That means to me that as a part of this court decision (to reconvene parliament immediately) is abrogating the queen’s power – essentially confirming her to be irrelevant to the process and just a puppet / figure head.

    The escape route for the bugman Judges, I presume, is that they found the Queen somehow didn’t prorogue parliament and that it was just BJ on a frolic on his own.

  36. Bruce of Newcastle

    UK PM Boris Johnson ‘shut down parliament unlawfully’, court rules

    That wasn’t predictable.

    He had advice it was lawful before the proroguement came into effect. For example:

    Commenting last week on BBC Newsnight, retired Supreme Court Justice Lord Sumption said the decision to prorogue parliament, though ‘politically shocking’, was lawful.

    That item is from 1 Sept. Then a Scots court made a judgement against and now the Supreme Court. If an ex-Supreme Court judge says it is lawful before the proroguement takes place, and the Supreme Court now overturns that opinion, who is right?

  37. Empire 5:5

    The escape route for the bugman Judges, I presume, is that they found the Queen somehow didn’t prorogue parliament and that it was just BJ on a frolic on his own.

    ‘Youth Climate Strike’ Founder is Ilhan Omar’s 16-Year-Old Daughter
    Omar’s 16-year-old daughter, Isra Hirsi, co-founded the U.S. chapter of the Youth Climate Strike.

    https://bigleaguepolitics.com/radical-agenda-youth-climate-strike-founder-is-ilhan-omars-16-year-old-daughter/

    Hirsi has made it clear that the Youth Climate Strike is about more than raising awareness about the environment. It is really about stopping President Donald Trump, and making sure he is booted from the White House in 2020.

    Following in her mother’s footsteps, Hirsi is not afraid to play the race card to advance her extreme leftist beliefs. She claims she stepped in to lead the environmental movement despite not knowing much about the cause, in order to steer it away from love of nature and toward social justice goals.

    Gun control and climate change are [considered] white issues,” she told a VICE reporter. “Black lives, police brutality, whatever, are not.”

    “[They’re] talking about how much they love grass and their lakes—I can’t connect with you on that,” Hirsi said of the toxic whiteness within the environmentalist movement. “So it’s a subtle We don’t want you here because they talk about things, knowing people like me can’t relate.”

    She hopes her example can further inject the issue of race into the environmental movement, to needlessly racialize yet another aspect of American politics.

    “Knowing that I am not alone and that there are millions of kids around my age doing the exact same thing as me. Knowing that I have the power to inspire so many other young black girls and so many other like Muslim girls within the movement… gives me the motivation and the joy to keep doing the work that I do,” Hirsi said to Essence Magazine.

    Real estate is back. Man it’s back

    This was being whispered at $4.5 million. It’s 180 sq meters on the top floor and needs head to toe renovation. It has a view of the Bot gardens.

    The real estate agent just texted me saying it sold for an astonishing $7.6 million on expressions of interest bids. Nothing has been done since 1960 when it was built. Just think, it was so bad the deceased owner(s) must have been incontinent because it had the smell of urine throughout. Incredible views though that will never be built against. One side had the bay and the other was the city.

    It’s an interesting idea.

    I’m focused on other stuff right now, like Red October, but long term we need to organise differently. Brandon Straka (#walkaway) is now coaching the maga army on how to use Alinsky against radicals. It works fastest at local level, but with broad visibility.

    LG offers fastest traction to change. That’s where I see sortition/recall/pleb concept getting up. As you move up the layers, the argument is less persuasive and change is more difficult to effect.

    Stand by your sham: datapoints (23 Sep)

    As I have observed previously in this series, everything about Ilhan Omar is a fraud, including her name. We have seen a plethora of congressional scandals in our history, yet we have never seen scandals like Omar’s in Congress. Here we have something new under the sun.

    It’s pretty impressive the list of stuff she’s evaded, stonewalled and obfuscated. And the list doesn’t include her use of campaign funds for personal uses, for which she was fined in June. Nor does it include her new boyfriend, who received something like $1 million in fees from her for campaign work.

    I especially like how her brother, who she apparently married, has apparently now resurfaced in London with a boyfriend of his own. I hope he stays away from any tall buildings.

    With a pedigree like that her daughter pushing the climate scam isn’t such a wild leap.

    Grasping, dying establishments always look to children and forced youth movements for revitalisation. It’s a vampire like situation, they suck on the youthful energy of the movements that they hamfistedly create.

    Healthy societies have a bulge of 25-40 year old parent led families with many children and as a whole simply can’t imagine the stupidity of revering dumbarse teenage children in this way. This is because children are all around them. Adults are adults, children are children (basically retards), the sky is blue.

    In this society on the other hand – the perfectly crafted bugman utopia – there are many hundreds of thousands of middle aged people who never interact with a child at all, ever. So they will create Greta’s, because they need Greta’s.

    Barnaby, a Federal National Party politician, was conning people into signing a petition against abortion, and sending him money, at the exact same time as the State members of his own party were voting to support late term abortions.

    Yep pick one with no dog in sight – many of the stallholders have a dog (those awful mongrel looking things Taiwan has with backward growing hair, that make Japan’s dogs look silky & sleek).
    If there’s no dog crawling all over the stall, the hygiene may only be Bombay standard, & you’ll probably recover from eating the food without requiring hospitalisation – though make sure the next week is blank in the appointment book.

    Germany began and lost two great wars, in 1914 and again in 1939. They were attempts to establish a European empire. Today, with not a shot fired, Germany (in company with France) is the imperial master of Europe. The present Franco-German empire is on the verge of finally consuming Britain — the womb of Western liberty and democracy that twice resisted Germany — with the help of its progeny nations.

    Britain’s precious liberty and national sovereignty are in danger of being legislated away if Brexit fails.

    Get a load of the Ursula cartoon.

    And if you don’t obey, you will be executed.

    In November, former German defence minister Ursula von der Leyen will assume the presidency of the European parliament for a five-year term.

    In the long statement, My Agenda for Europe, she outlines her proposals.

    Some of her views, drawn from an article by New York-based researcher Soeren Kern, foretell the flavour of the further erosions of national sovereignty that are being planned for the member nations: “Carbon emissions must have a price. Every person and every sector will have to contribute.”

    Appropriate taxation of everybody must follow.

    The financial system will be deepened and expanded by a “budgetary instrument for convergence and competitiveness” plus a “European deposit insurance scheme” and a complete “banking union”.

    “In my first 100 days in office, I will put forward legislation for a co-ordinated European approach on the human and ethical implications of artificial intelligence,” she writes.

    Von der Leyen goes on to speak of a “European gender strategy” to ensure “full equality” and a “European education area” to change the culture of education and a “digital education plan” to “rethink education”.

    Kern quotes von der Leyen as saying: “I believe Europe should have a stronger and more united voice in the world.”

    She calls for “a change in rules so that the EU could act even without the unanimous consent of EU member states” and asserts: “To be a global leader, the EU needs to be able to act fast. I will push for qualified majority voting to become the rule in this area.”

    And further — and perhaps most ominous of all — she intends to ensure the primacy of EU law over the national laws of EU states.

    This is a mere glimpse of what the Remain movement seeks to establish for Britain. It is the abandonment of 1000 years of glorious history and liberty and, if they succeed, a voluntary submission to a future that will be designed by a Franco-German suzerainty.

    Ursula sounds like she’s out of some kind of Nazi horror movie.

    I will repeat. There was no such myth as “every Nasho who served in Vietnam was a volunteer”

    It was merely a misapprehension Dapin laboured under after conversing with some motorcycling enthusiasts in 2007. Dapin made it up. It did not exist before 2014 and Dapin’s research effectively debunked his own misconception.

    Had Dapin been studying for his PhD rather than writing for magazines at the time he probably would have researched the yarn he was spun. But he didn’t, because he had magazines to sell. If he had of consulted the Australian’s at War Film Archive compiled by UNSW who interviewed a representative sample of National Servicemen in the early 2000’s, he would have found that while “The vast majority of Nashos who served in Vietnam were volunteers” – 97% of them. A tiny minority were not.

    Those who had a marble hit their birth date had three options to avoid National Service completely.

    1. Become a conscientious objector, like Simon Townsend did. He spent 1 month in Long Bay and 1 month in a Military Prison. Not a severe penalty and one that certainly did not impede his future career as a television presenter.

    2. Join the CMF for 6 years, which is the route the current Queensland Governor Paul de Jersey took.

    3. Attempt to intentionally fail the medical, admitted by nobody ever.

    Having now joined the Army the odds of going to Vietnam were still very low. 63,740 were called up but only 18,712 Nashos went to Vietnam – 29%. Famous Nashos who didn’t go to Vietnam include Peter Brock, Dick Johnson, Jeff Kennett, Bob Fulton, Kevin Sheedy and Doug Walters.

    The number of men whose conscientious objection status was successfully confirmed by a court was 1242. Apart from Simon Townsend, there were only 13 other instances where anyone was imprisoned for ignoring a call up notice. The number of men who volunteered for National Service dwarfed this number.

    Some of the men who volunteered were the large cohort of Aboriginal soldiers automatically exempt from National Service. These included men like Colin Tilmouth and Gilbert Green who HAD to volunteer if they wished to participate in the National Service scheme. They were not normal conscripts, because their birth dates did not necessarily come out in the draw. For example: Gilbert Green’s Birth date was 9 October 1946. The balloted in birth dates for 1946 were October 3, 8, 13, 16, 17, 22, 24, 27, 30, 31.

    It is a disgrace when a PhD student writing a thesis on National Service holds himself out to be ‘fully woke’ virtue signaller, when it comes to his ‘Murri’ comrades but doesn’t even know the enlistment circumstances of members of his own Battalion and is too lazy to research it. (For those interested in such things, Gil Green is an Elder from the Bundjalung mob. As is Roy Mundine. If the Army must have an Indigenous Elder, Roy Mundine was an excellent first pick.)

    Once in the NS system, there was only one special category of National Servicemen who were guaranteed never to serve in Vietnam. They were the ‘chalkies.’ Trained teachers who were sent to Papua New Guinea to serve with the Pacific Islands Regiment for a year of teaching. A tranche of 44 of this elite group were selected each year. It is unknown whether previous experience operating a Bell and Howell movie projector was part of the selection criteria, but it certainly wouldn’t have hurt…

    It is amusing that after constantly bleating in this place for 4 long years that “every Nasho who served in Vietnam was a volunteer is a myth” the plagiarist is now arguing a position 180 degrees to that premise.

    After having the fact that the “myth” was confected by Dapin for commercial reasons explained to him.

    After having established the fact that 97% of Nashos who served in Vietnam were volunteers of varying shades of enthusiasm.

    The PhD student is now arguing that “No Nasho volunteered for service in Vietnam”!

    There are no depths of intellectual dishonesty that he will not stoop.

    I have never once mentioned it to them. And I won’t. But I suspect they know, that I know.

    These blokes are absolute gentlemen, and you can tell from speaking to them that they are much more “worldly” than most blokes you meet.

    nUmbers is ashamed of his conduct, but dresses it up as heroism. What a dispicable prick.

    There is actually an old joke along the lines of “can I borrow your roach or fly”?

    You think he’d carry it wrapped in a bag or shirt pocket?

    I’d be surprised if he was wearing a shirt. Or pants for that matter.

    I’m poor, but I’m not that poor.
    Luckily the missus occasionally peals off a dollar or two to feed me or buy car parts.
    Not sure what she thinks she is getting in return, but there you go.

    It might have crawled out of his dreadlocks.

    Earlier I mentioned how the Nobel prize came about.
    Basically he was shamed into establishing it.

    In 1888 Alfred’s brother Ludvig died while visiting Cannes and a French newspaper erroneously published Alfred’s obituary. It condemned him for his invention of dynamite and is said to have brought about his decision to leave a better legacy after his death. A French obituary stated “The merchant of death is dead”.

    Alfred was disappointed with what he read and concerned with how he would be remembered for good things. On 27 November 1895, at the Swedish-Norwegian Club in Paris, Nobel signed his last will and testament and set aside the bulk of his estate to establish the Nobel Prizes, to be awarded annually without distinction of nationality.

    According to his will, Alfred Nobel’s enormous fortune was to be used to establish prizes to award those who had done their best to benefit mankind in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and peace. The first Nobel Prizes were awarded in 1901, five years after Nobel’s death.

    Hopefully she will visit with bought food.
    Not something she cooked.

    If she ditches you, you could buy that apartment I linked to earlier. Don’t renovate it though as you want to live rough with the smell of urine circulating around. It’s the rich hobo look… very in at the moment and older sheilas love it.

    Hopefully not street food and no cockroaches in it.

    I’ll ask her.
    I don’t think she has a sense of smell.

    From the UK Telegraph, on the collapse of the Thomas Cook Group:

    Fankhauser [the CEO] seems no more alive to the crisis that is about to unfold. Indeed, among the “big and bold moves” he trumpets is a decision to cut ties with animal attractions that keep orcas in captivity and a new pledge to reduce plastic waste.

    Those statements were made ten months ago at the end of November. Less than two weeks later, a second profit warning in as many months had been issued and analysts were talking of a £400 million shortfall.

    The chief executive’s review totals 3200 words. Yet, remarkably, debt is mentioned once – in the penultimate paragraph.

    However, by May the following year borrowings had spiralled to a colossal £1.3 billion, £361 million higher than the previous year.

    Get woke, go broke.

    I almost feel guilty for having an Aussie wife but she is of a religion much maligned here by some, so there is that as a saving grace.

    Google still won’t tell me who invited Greta to the UN General Assembly.

    No, the other one numbers thinks poorly of.

    PS, do you think the weather and track conditions have any effect on your books?

    Going forward, I reckon it would be a good question to ask gerbil warmers that, if they believe naysayers are impeding the move towards the promised land, where streams flow with chocolate and children are singing in the town square, would they kill or support the killing of these people and anyone who opposes them.

    Do they support the killing of climate sceptics?

    Some would.
    for the rest:
    Would they defend one against the mob?

    PS, do you think the weather and track conditions have any effect on your books?

    Absolutely zero. What has an effect is the Government interference in gambling.

    Years ago, anyone could “set up a stand” and have a crack at the punters. Pay your fee, go for it. Take a risk. Those days are long gone.

    I really don’t know where to start, other than at the end. The TAB will end up owning all the bookmakers. You might think you are betting with Sportsbet or whoever else. You won’t be.

    The job of driving Country Bookmakers is almost complete.

    Strangely enough, Barnaby mentioned this in his speel today (but in relation to energy). For the record, I wasn’t there. Mrs A was. But she mentioned he was talking about the Sherman Act? in the US whereby Government is able to break-up monopolies. The example given was AGL buying Liddell Power Station.

    That’s when I got distracted by the Cats talking about boobs.

    Letting pubs have poker machines was a crime against the nation. We can thank the Wheelans for that (a NSW politician in the Bob Carr era).

    It’s the reason sporting clubs are struggling so much. I’m a big fan of free enterprise, but using the Government to line your own pocket is absolutely shit.

  211. Armadillo

    Sinc, when are you going to smote Arky for putting up racist videos?

    A stern warning would suffice.

  212. Mark A

    Had a nice walk, nothing close to 9 K but I still have visions of Arky’s offerings.

    I hate the EU for various reasons, but I have to admit they make the “trains run on time” so to speak.
    I buy a lot of stuff over the net home delivered AND COD.

    The delivery guys are compelled to email or SMS you of the day of delivery and give you a 3 hour time slot.
    No waiting for a surly guy who doesn’t bother to ring the bell even, just leave a prepared note.

  213. Armadillo

    On further reading, the “Sherman Act” has no equivalent in Australia.

    In laymans terms, it’s basically antitrust regulation. You can’t buy out Liddell (coal) to gain a monopoly on energy supply (via gas).

    JC, what’s the go with Sydney Airport? We need to deal with you money grubbers.

    Are you sure this is all legal and above board? Sherman Act NOW!

  214. Armadillo

    home delivered AND COD.

    Why COD. Don’t trust the neighbours? The delivery guys?

  215. Armadillo

    Anyone got a link to Trump addressing UN?

  216. egg_

    Greta has been a vegan for more than a few years, so has probably been deprived of some of the nutrients necessary for normal development.

    A neglected kid, as suspected:
    – Foetal alcohol syndrome
    – Obviously neglected psychologically (pissed when Trump ignored her)
    – Neglected physically (diet)

    And the Leftoid freakshow seeks to lecture the world.
    Bonkers.
