    Are people in the US taxes significantly lower than here in Australia?

    Don’t they also pay state income taxes and I know most pay what to us would be outrageous property taxes

    Yes it does have to do with the shop because the allegation was that there was a satanic cult operating under the pizza parlour based on wild speculation about a couple of messages on social media and a painting.

    Ita Buttrose pulls ABC’s Q&A show over ‘call to violence’

    THEAUSTRALIAN.COM.AU
    ABC launched investigation into Q&A episode over provocative language (QandA)
    Viewers have complained about an episode that featured high-profile feminists who “used offensive language and called for endorsed violence”.

    Ita Buttrose has ordered the removal of this week’s Q&A from all digital platforms featuring Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy.

    The ABC has pulled a Q&A episode from all its platforms and investigating whether it breached editorial standards by allowing panellists to apparently advocate violence, arson and extrajudicial killings.

    After a flood of complaints about Monday’s program, ABC managing director David Anderson on Thursday conceded “elements” may have been “offensive”.

    “We have received audience complaints about the program, are assessing the concerns raised and will investigate whether the program met the ABC’s editorial standards.”

    The investigation comes as Hamish Macdonald was announced on Thursday as the new host of Q&A. Macdonald’s appointment was foreshadowed last month by The Diary.

    ABC chairwoman Ita Buttrose backed Mr Anderson’s decision to investigate the program, saying it would be removed from all ABC platforms.

    “I agree with David’s statement, which I’ve discussed with him,” Ms Buttrose told The Australian. “We can’t do much more than issue the statement that we have, and we won’t be repeating the program. The plan is to take it off.”

    Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said the while the ABC had editorial independence, he believed the investigation was “appropriate”, given the “significant community concern” generated.

    The Australian Communications and Media Authority may investigate if the ABC is as seen as failing to respond adequately.

    “The ACMA has received 53 complaints about Monday night’s episode of Q&A,” a spokesman said. “Under the co-regulatory system, the ACMA refers complainants to the broadcaster in the first instance.

    “If the complainant does not receive a response from the broadcaster within 60 days, or is not satisfied with the response, they may bring their complaint to the ACMA.”

    The show, condemned by Liberal Senator Eric Abetz as “utterly irresponsible”, included a comment by Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy, who appeared to suggest killing rapists might be needed to prevent rape.

    “How many rapists must we kill – not the state, because I disagree with the death penalty and I want to get rid of incarceration?” Eltahawy said, in response to a question about when violence was justified.

    “I want women themselves…As a woman, I’m asking: How many rapists must we kill until men stop raping us?”

    Host Fran Kelly, criticised by Senator Abetz for not immediately repudiating the panellists’ comments, did question Eltahawy as to whether she was “promoting violence”.

    Indigenous screenwriter Nayuka Gorrie told the show violence was “okay” in the context of the oppression of Aboriginal people and declared she looked forward to people “burning stuff”.

    “I wonder what kind of tipping point in Australia is going to be, when people start burning stuff – I look forward to it,” she said.

    Aborigines had “tried for 230 plus years to appeal to the colonisers’ sense of morality” to no avail. “So I think violence is okay because if someone is trying to kill you, there’s no amount of ‘Oh, but I’m really clever, I’m really articulate’ … no amount of that will save you, so let’s burn stuff,” Gorrie said.

    Senator Abetz welcomed the investigation but said it underlined a “cultural problem with the ABC”. “The average Australian would be horrified at the suggestion that violence might be an appropriate course of action in relation to political matters, yet not one of the chosen panel were of that (anti-violence) view,” he said. “How do they choose such a panel?”

    Mr Anderson said the offending episode, presented in conjunction with The Wheeler Centre’s feminist ideas festival, ‘Broadside’, and was intended to be “challenging”.

    “The intention of the program was to present challenging ideas from high-profile feminists whose expertise ranges across ageism, disability, Indigenous and domestic violence issues,” he said.

    “The ABC acknowledges that the program was provocative in regard to the language used and some of the views presented.”

    How do you get sustainable physics?

    How can you study Young’s modulus or wire conductivity in a sustainable manner? What about sustainable RLC circuits? Sustainable NPN transistors?

    Bloody idiocy.

    “Sustainable sine curves”

    Well, we’re going to ban non-divergent limits

    The thinking mind boggles and wants to die

    They make you write an essay where you mount an argument about the sustainability benefits of wire connectivity. It doesn’t have to be physically correct, it just has to be a well written argument.
    Thus, if you are a right brained person you will get a lesser mark.

    Earlier in April, a team from southern China came under international fire for sticking extra copies of human “intelligence-related” genes into macaque monkeys. And despite efforts to revamp its reputation in biomedical research ethics, China does have slacker rules in primate research compared to Western countries.

    If you’re feeling icked out, you’re not alone. The morality and ethics of growing human-animal hybrids are far from clear. But creepiness aside, scientists do have two reasons for wading into these uncomfortable waters.
    One is xenotransplantation. Izpisúa Belmonte, for example, hopes to grow fully-functional human organs inside animals, which could in theory make transplantable organ shortage a thing of the past. The other goal is to understand the genes that shape our brain in evolution and development—ones that bestow us with our extraordinary intelligence, and ones that screw up neural wiring in neuropsychiatric disorders when they go wrong.

    There is a series of movies about the outcome from this very thing wasn’t there?

  46. Knuckle Dragger

    Good old Mona’s argument fails on several levels.

    First, Mona herself could comfortably walk the streets in the knowledge that she is the least likely person or thing in this country to be subject to rope.

    Then is quite happy to kill not just ropists (which I wouldn’t have a problem with) but men who could potentially be ropists. And THEN goes on to say she’s against the death penalty.

    Which means that killing the punters is ok, just the ones she wants killed.

    And who’s going to do the killing, if there’s no police forces to do it? Herds of fat chicks with a warrant from the Komsomol, ponderously groaning their way through front bars and construction sites like quicksand?

  47. Farmer Gez

    Cool windy and damp weather has all but stopped the hay baling in Victoria. Like most farmers we’re going to have hay and crops harvest overlap by a good margin.
    You can’t have one truck doing two jobs, so my task today is getting freight quotes from contractors. I expect NSW farmers might come down with a few rigs but with regulations these days it’s probably better to use the professionals.
    Electronic scales hooked to the phone allows them to get the axle loads as close to legal as you can get. There’s still a wait until the airbags settle to get the last few hundred kilos for a commercial load.
    All scales work best on a flat hard surface, so loading in soft soil paddocks still makes for guessing. Magistrates like to lecture truckers on the few hundred kilos that have crept onto one axle set as the load shifts in the tub. There’s no one more expert on correct loading than an over promoted lawyer.
    Pricing is around $10-11 to load and $1-1.50 per ten km for freight. A fifty km trip would cost $16 per tonne which is about $680 per B double. Wheat is $310 per tonne delivered and with good yields in our area the freight component is bearable.

  48. Knuckle Dragger

    At the risk of jumping on the obvious here:

    A large part of Tits’ downfall was that he was a multimillionaire from the topender town, claiming to rail against the topender town and wanting to additionally tax the bejesus out of the topender town which in his plan was Mum and Dad who’d put the odd share away over time in order to fund fat screamy lesbians and blackouts.

    No. Calli has it right, ruthless mockery is the only thing that works on them. They are hyper sensitive to insults of that sort which makes it all the more enjoyable to do it. If you have ever had the misfortune to spend time with any of the more vigorous personality disorders then you know the hopes of fixing things is illusory and these types are pretty much textbook cases. Best to cut the current crop loose and implement negative consequences for that sort of behaviour so as to act as a disincentive for future generations. Defunding the arts faculties until they learn the importance of policing themselves properly might help too.

  52. Percy Popinjay

    The NSW gliberals truly are an inspiring bunch.

    NSW Police Minister David Elliott was embroiled in a road rage incident with a 17-year-old P-plater who clipped his car. Elliott was ferrying some containers, several of which were irreparably damaged in the incident, to a nearby Debris Dalek.*

    The ALPBC is utterly unaccountable to anyone or anything. I think they removed the program as it would have been very likely to gain international notoriety, which the ALPBC would still be sensitive to (hence the reference to removing it from all “digital platforms”). They couldn’t give a shit about mightily pissing off anyone in this country, as they know nothing adverse will happen to them.

    11000 scientists signed a declaration of climate emergency. Its great that it gets media attention. But it’s not like this the first time. Just last year over 20000 scientist signed a similar warning. How many warnings do we need to treat this as a crisis?

    20,000 scientists give dire warning about the future in ‘letter to humanity’ – and the world is listening
    The paper is now one of the most discussed scientific works ever and has been signed by a huge number of experts

    Aborigines had “tried for 230 plus years to appeal to the colonisers’ sense of morality” to no avail.

    What?

    Are they saying that when whitey turned up Aborigines, speaking sedately and diplomatically, urged them to reflect on notions of equity and morality? And that whitey cruelly ignored their pleas, indulging a sadistic streak at the expense of the more deliberative Aborigines?

    They consider this made up version of history, which exists nowhere outside their cranial vaults, to be the proper basis of future action. They consider that even if it is not verifiable it still contains a truth. The realities in the records are ‘old white man’ things that are best ignored.

    Electronic scales hooked to the phone allows them to get the axle loads as close to legal as you can get. There’s still a wait until the airbags settle to get the last few hundred kilos for a commercial load.
    All scales work best on a flat hard surface, so loading in soft soil paddocks still makes for guessing. Magistrates like to lecture truckers on the few hundred kilos that have crept onto one axle set as the load shifts in the tub. There’s no one more expert on correct loading than an over promoted lawyer.
    Pricing is around $10-11 to load and $1-1.50 per ten km for freight. A fifty km trip would cost $16 per tonne which is about $680 per B double. Wheat is $310 per tonne delivered and with good yields in our area the freight component is bearable.

In schools, the greatest pressure should be brought to bear on the curriculum, where there is a lot of parental support for change back to more traditional approaches.

    “Nutty conspiracy theories”: Epstein killed himself, all those guests to his islands were just there to enjoy the view.

    Indeed. Epstein dies in solitary confinement, two weeks after an attempted strangulation by an inmate, when he should have been under constant surveillance both in person and video, yet the prison guard was ‘lax’ and the video camera wasn’t ‘working’. Bones/ cartilage in his throat were broken that are very unusual for a suicide by hanging, but typical for strangulation. Further, his lawyers reported him in good spirits on the day he died since he was expecting another sweetheart deal like the last one about a decade ago. We now know that NBC and ABC spiked investigations of Epstein because of the principals it put in the frame, like Clinton and Prince Andrew, and yet we see very, very little in the media about this entire saga.

    Prince Andrew talks of royal joy over Prince William’s wedding
    By PageSix.com StaffDecember 6, 2010 | 5:00am
    Britain’s Prince Andrew regaled a bevy of media heavyweights at billionaire Jeffrey Epstein‘s Upper East Side townhouse the other night when he told of the royal family’s joy over Prince William‘s upcoming wedding to Kate Middleton — and the glamorous guests asked for invitations.

    Andrew was quizzed by guests including Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, Charlie Rose, Woody Allen and Chelsea Handler at the dinner thrown by Epstein, the disgraced former hedge fund manager who is old friends with Prince Andrew.

    Our source said, “Most of the talk started off about trade and industry, but by dessert, everybody couldn’t hold back and asked him about the wedding.
    ….

    Complete with weasel wording over Epsteins crimes.
    \
    Epstein, who recently finished a jail term for soliciting prostitutes, and Prince Andrew have been close friends for years. Epstein has stayed at Sandringham and vacationed with the prince in Thailand, while Andrew has visited his Manhattan home many times.

    “Disidentifications from the West(ern): An Autoethnography of Becoming an Other”

    “Language Matters: analysing the identity discourses of LGBT film festivals”

    “Beijing Meets Hawai‘i: Reflections on Ku’er, Indigeneity, and Queer Theory.”

    “History, Disrupted: The aesthetic gentrification of queer and trans cinema”

    Yes indeed, it’s a target-rich environment for any education minister with the gumption to ask just what this piffle contributes to the nation’s future.

    Fat chance of that ever happening.

    JCU lynches Peter Ridd and then-minister Simon Birmingham not only visits JCU and hails the institution but also hands out money. About the Ridd disgrace, not a peep.

    New minister but, again, not a peep about the misuse of JCU’s cash and resources. No threats to cut funding if the nonsense doesn’t stop. Nothing, just a supine silence.

    Thing is, as Trump has demonstrated, anyone with the resolve to not only endure the disdain of the luvvie class but to ridicule and deride these black-clad pseuds strikes a resonant note with the 99% of the population — the sorts who don’t think the Constitution needs an amendment guaranteeing the right to tuck penises and schtupp polar bears.

    Rapper T.I. faces major backlash for ‘hymen’ comments

    Planned Parenthood and others on social media blasted T.I. after the rapper said he goes to the gynecologist with his daughter every year to make sure her hymen is “still intact.”

    In an episode of the “Ladies Like Us” podcast that debuted this week, T.I. said that he takes “yearly trips to the gynecologist” with his now 18-year-old daughter. Social media blew up afterward, with people strongly lashing out at T.I.

    Planned Parenthood posted a series of clapback tweets Wednesday, starting with: “Idk who needs to hear this but virginity is a made-up social construct, and it has absolutely nothing to do with your hymen.”

    “And many other activities besides sex can stretch your hymen — like riding a bike (or) doing sports,” the nonprofit also tweeted.

    “The View” co-host Joy Behar scolded audience members on-air Thursday after they clapped for Donald Trump Jr., who was a guest on the show promoting his new book.

    Mr. Trump Jr.’s visit with his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle on the show repeatedly devolved into a shouting match among the co-hosts and even the audience members on-air and during commercial breaks, The Hollywood Reporter reported. At one point, several audience members cheered while Mr. Trump Jr. was defending himself for posting a tweet that contained the name of the anonymous government whistleblower whose complaint spurred the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

    “Listen, this is not a MAGA rally, OK?” Ms. Behar scoffed. “Calm down.”

    China is the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitter, and its actions both at home and abroad have an enormous impact on global greenhouse gas emissions. Discouragingly, increased fossil-fuel consumption drove an estimated 2.3% increase in Chinese CO2 emissions in 2018, a second year of growth after emissions had appeared to level out between 2014 and 2016.

    China is simultaneously, and almost paradoxically, the world’s largest consumer of coal and the largest solar technology manufacturer, and the choice it makes between the technology of the past versus the future will have a lasting effect on the world’s ability to limit warming to 1.5oC.

    The IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C found that coal needs to exit the power sector by 2050 globally if warming is to be limited to this level, and efforts by China to reduce coal in the next few years will be critical to this. In global cost-optimal, Paris Agreement-consistent pathways, China phases out coal by 2040. China’s emissions, like the rest of the world’s, need to peak imminently, and then decline rapidly. Discouragingly, China started construction of 28 GW of new coal-fired power capacity in 2018 after a previous construction ban was lifted, bringing its total coal capacity under construction to 235 GW.

    Why?

    If you’re worried about false accusations shouldn’t you be worried also about innocent people being denied their liberty?

    Correct.

    Even the old trope about losing 1 mn dollars in a civil trial on the balance of probabilities is bullshit.

    Look at the Katy Perry v Flame lawsuit.

    Total bollocks.

    If I was to ever serve on a jury again, I would torpedo any guilty verdict that was a majority, not a unanimous verdict.

    Coupla things, Daniel-san:

    1. There was nothing ‘supposed’ about incitement to not just violence but extrajudicial killings. Also, the porky beasts mouthing off about it kept using the term ‘we’, thus implying they speak for all chickies. Recent events have demonstrated the folly of taking this stance without asking; and
    2. Even if identical sentiments were expressed on ‘any number of tv channels’ programs and movies’, which they aren’t, that would be fine.

    Except that I paid for these hideous warthogs to cover themselves in their own shit in public.

  151. notafan

    Yes they actually said that

    Forget zanzibar, seasoned Africa hands will tell you. Lamu is the loveliest island on the Swahili coast. Donkeys ply alleyways between ancient buildings clad in coral. Wooden dhows lie at anchor in its fishing ports. Private cars are banned.

    So plans to build a 1gw coal-fired power station, Kenya’s first coal plant, 20km (12 miles) away on the mainland caused dismay when they were unveiled in 2013. Islanders worried that pollution would damage architecture, despoil the marine environment and deter tourists. Environmentalists griped that the plant would greatly increase Kenya’s greenhouse-gas emissions. They were relieved in June when an environmental tribunal suspended the project’s licence pending a more comprehensive impact assessment.

    “Dirty and dumb”
    African countries plan to build dozens of coal-fired power stations

  152. Bruce of Newcastle

    Discouragingly, China started construction of 28 GW of new coal-fired power capacity in 2018 after a previous construction ban was lifted, bringing its total coal capacity under construction to 235 GW.

    Australian coal fired electricity: 15 GW right now.
    So if we shut down our entire coal-fired power station fleet we would offset about half what China started building in one year.

    There is no such thing as the “Australian primary school syllabus” and there hasn’t been for years.
    Curriculum content is chosen at school level within the boundaries set by ACARA – see a sample.
    The choices are influenced largely by the school community, and shaped by location, the SES level of the school, and themes relevant to the locality.

    Save your ears.

    Heres some gems from the dunghill.


    If we’re talking about accountability, I don’t know how far we can go in keeping an organisation like the police to account because it is there to be violent, it is patriarchal, and it is overwhelmingly white. So, why…? Yeah, how do we…? I think it shouldn’t exist, but… Um… I think… Yeah, I think… Yeah.


    MONA ELTAHAWY

    White supremacy.

    But what we’ve done here in Australia is we’ve brought…we brought over a culture, you know, in 1788, when we first started coming here, that was absolutely torn apart by domestic violence and child abuse. We brought that culture here. We brought it to a nation of Indigenous Australians who had lived here for 65,000 plus years who had survived and thrived for that long because they knew what was required to keep intimacy and emotional relationships intact.

    How long must we wait for men and boys to stop murdering us, to stop beating us and to stop paping us? How many papists must we kill? Not the state, because I disagree with the death penalty and I want to get rid of incarceration and I’m with you on the police. So I want women themselves… As a woman I’m asking, how many papists must we kill until men stop paping us?

    ASHTON APPLEWHITE

    It’s never the ideal, it’s never the first thing to go to, but, you know, slave rebellions, I mean, there are many causes where people have resorted to violence as a way to finally break through and get heard and achieve what we need. And if that’s what it takes, that’s what it takes.

    When you say violence begets violence, there’s something kind of… It’s almost sounding like it’s like a level playing field which it’s not. It’s absolutely not. So I think if you’re defending yourself, then I’m surprised. I wonder what our kind of tipping point in Australia’s going to be when people are going to start burning stuff. I look forward to it.

    So I’m thinking about, you know, a colony, we live in a colony. We’ve tried for 230-plus years to appeal to the colonisers’ morality which doesn’t seem to exist. I think violence, yeah, I think violence is OK because if someone is trying to kill you, there’s no amount of, “Oh, but I’m really clever.” You know, “I’m really articulate.” No amount of that is going to save you, so, yeah, let’s burn stuff.

    who in the United States would call the police if there’s a domestic violence incident and would hope to survive? It would be white people.

    No bull: WATCH Indians engage in massive COW DUNG fight for Gore Habba festival

    The cow dung – used in rural India for various purposes, ranging from insulating houses to serving as stove fuel – is stockpiled well before the event to ensure that the revelers do not run out of ‘ammo.’ While it might look quite unsanitary to smear your whole body in feces, the devotees believe it is not only harmless, but actually cures diseases.

    “Cow dung is very natural and has a lot of medicinal benefits. Others might say if we throw cow dung at each other we will get some infections or even some disease. But with the trust of our god Beereshwara, we are playing in the cow dung, so nothing happens to us,” one of the villagers, going only by his first name Prabhu, explained.

    He added that the festival was all about equality and anyone regardless of their caste or religion can participate. Still, women are barred from the excrement-throwing part, yet they are free to watch the show.

    Investigation puts a name to the man whose death traumatised SAS medic Dusty Miller
    By Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters
    November 7, 2019 — 11.30pm

    A report by Afghan investigators has corroborated the testimony of a former Australian special forces medic who said an injured Afghan man in his care was taken away by a senior SAS soldier and summarily executed.

    The new evidence includes injury marks suggesting the injured man may have had his chest stomped on prior to his death. The investigation by Afghan human rights investigators has also given the allegedly executed man a name – Haji Sardar Khan. He was a father of seven and a grandfather.

    Former SAS medic, Afghan veteran and decorated senior army warrant officer Dusty Miller revealed the March 2012 summary execution in an interview with The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and 60 Minutes in September. He revealed that he had been treating an unarmed Afghan man shot through the thigh when an SAS soldier removed the man from Mr Miller’s care. Mr Miller later discovered the man had been killed.

    Mr Miller’s experience has reverberated in the defence force as it suggests a shocking war crime had been committed by an SAS soldier – the murder of an innocent and injured man.

    Mr Miller is among the first serving Australian soldiers to speak up about war crimes. His call for justice for victims of war crimes was backed by two serving SAS soldiers who were interviewed with their voices and faces obscured as part of a major Age, Herald and Nine investigation in September.

    The investigation separately revealed that a Commando had confessed to executing an unarmed prisoner of war in late 2012.

    The identity of Haji Sardar Khan is detailed in an investigation by Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission, which received a complaint from family members about his death in the village of Sarkhume in March 2012. The ABC reported recently that it had received leaked copies of the commission’s files, and reported how investigators had documented several suspicious deaths at the hands of Australian soldiers.

    However, the ABC did not connect the death with Mr Miller’s testimony. The commission’s report said Khan was shot in the thigh by Australian soldiers and then the wounded Afghan was removed by the soldiers to a mosque, where villagers lost sight of him.

    The Khan family told a Afghan journalist working for the ABC that Sardar Khan was shot without warning while posing no threat and, while injured, was carried away with a sack over his head over the shoulder of an Australian soldier.

    The sequence of events outlined in Mr Miller’s account and the commission files suggests that the wounded Khan was then handed over to Mr Miller for treatment. It was while Mr Miller was treating Khan near the mosque that, according to defence sources, the injured Afghan was taken from his care by an SAS soldier and executed. The Age and Herald are not naming the SAS soldier for legal reasons, although we have confirmed he has left the regiment.

    Mr Miller confirmed in his September interview that he had knowledge of a likely war crime involving the man in his care. He also confirmed it was under investigation by the Brereton inquiry, the long-running probe by the military Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force into allegations that special forces soldiers engaged in war crimes.

    “Nutty conspiracy theories”: Epstein killed himself, all those guests to his islands were just there to enjoy the view.

    Including Stephen Hawking and Q&A guest Lawrence Krauss amongst others.

    Loafers are the stupidest footwear on the planet.
    Crocs make more sense.

    Did anyone claim that Epstein island was a ‘nutty conspiracy theory’

    why no, no they didn’t

    on the other hand

    ‘everything I read on the internet is true’

    Good to see the article in the Oz regarding how Chinese Australians are responsible for ScoMo being in the lodge.
    They should be rewarded for being such productive members of society.

    The ecological effects of animal mass mortality events

    Leader of a pack of lemmings: “Hey look over there, a feminayzee landwhale anti-misogynee march and it’s headed our way!”

    Lemmings (en masse): “Aaaaarrrrggghhgghghgh!!!!” (stampede towards nearest cliff ensues)

    This comes from the ABC report of the Tony Abbott tribute dinner.
    “If anyone wants to know who is to blame for the Warringah result it was not the campaign — it was just the candidate,” he said

    No he didn’t say that. I know, I was there. What he did say was If anyone wants to know who is to blame for the Warringah result it was not the campaign — it was just the campaign” On saying campaign a second time he pointed at himself. SO I suppose the ABC got the sense of the statement right, but not the actual words. It is clear that Mr Abbott probably menat to say candidate and maybe even released a copy of speech to the ABC beforehand. But it just shows that the ABC writer didn’t bother to listen to what Mr Abbott actually said.

    ABC Banner headline refers to ‘a week of wins for Democrats’.

    I think they are going to be just as shocked next year when Trump almost certainly wins as they were in 2016.

    The they will call it a ‘shock’ election result, or an ‘upset’. The problem will again be how they formed their expectations, not the outcome which will have followed its own logical and inevitable course.

    Not to be confused with other seismic events, like Rocket Man’s nuke tests.

    I had to stop reading that Gorrie piece.

    She’s severely damaged.

    Seriously? No … similar imagination to Tail Gunner, but better with words. She didn’t dance naked in the shower. And didn’t mention perky tits … not once.

    There seems to be no ban on plastic cups that replaced glass for certain functions or venues serving alcohol.
    Knowing it’s the Chinese pouring plastics into the ocean, as everyone does, these people hate us having bbq’s catering in remote areas, etc so much that their regulations are infringing on other regulations impinging on our freedoms.
    To me this is war, a hate filled war they are waging , it’s also very feminazi based , full of insulated ignorance of the real world outside their bubble, and who cares anyway, because virtue signalling and hatred of the bogan Australians using plastic, cancels out any practical policy.

    I make up big feeds for lunch out in the bush in the middle of nowhere, for large tour groups salads and cold meats etc and we have no wash facilities and can’t waste the water anyway.
    I’ll just spoon the salads into the punter’s cupped hands.

    There’s ya backyard BBQ or picnic gone.
    When do we fight back?
    Oh sorry, this is Australia,
