    To get to the point.
    the word Hagger in Hebr#w can be translated as “alien” “sojourner” or “stranger” among others.

    The word is ger, ha is simply a preposition, meaning the .

    H3brew has a relatively small vocabulary so nouns have a wide semantic range.

    Ha’ger can quite validly be translated foreigner as well as alien, sojourner, stranger, etc..

    The context is clearly foreign workers.
    Hence the “reside” bit.
    There is a clear economic imperative to protect the person of foreign workers imported into the country. As we can see today even.
    The context is clear.

  18. Roger

    The context is clear.

    Context is certainly important but there are many more Bible verses that could be cited, and if I have time tomorrow I will.

    The fundamental point which goes back to the first book in the canon, Genesis, is that all human beings – even furriners – were made in God’s image and hence entitled to life. The commandment not to kill didn’t have an ethnic qualifier.

    Just watching the Drum. Geez it is awful. Fitzsimian just made the argument that the NSW Male Netball team doesn’t deserve the same pay as the girls, while the Matildas do deserve the same pay as the men due the amount of spectators they pull in. He also said the AFLW draws huge crowds. How can he mouth such nonsense?

    The Drum also covered Margaret Court saga & they all piled on about homoxyls getting a hard time from Margaret Court etc, except for Katherine Greiner who tried to stick up for Margaret but got howled down, by Fizsimian mainly.

  30. Overburdened

    When the sun sets I am going to go up to the beach and look west to see if I can see fire.

    As regards Margaret Court, she played tennis. Her religion is her own opinion and she’s entitled to it, and not entitled to force it on others and so you get what you get.

    Fortunately this rule does not apply to those who know best, apparently.

  31. Rex Mango

    The Drum also agreed that because there are fires in NSW & Nappa Valley in California, that climate change is the culprit. Simple stuff really to prove using this analysis.

    Don’t recall her ‘forcing’ her views on others, she had an opinion and voiced it.
    So did other millions who might not even be Christians. The vote wasn’t unanimous.

    I feel the need to advise that I do not watch Tele other than for sports of specific types.

    The only communication I have with other humans is online or at a checkout syn when I’m not working.

    Fn hard here too sometimes.

    It would be great if everyone agreed with me.

    The difference between me and the fuckwits on Tele et al is that they think they’re important and I know that in the scheme of things no one is.

    I appreciate the venue to allow me to talk shit.

  37. Rex Mango

    NSW looks to be in real strife tonight with some of these fires. Showing the Fire HQ on ABC News, which is like the War Room in Dr Strangelove. About now, with sun going down and winds changing, Christine Nixon would be heading to the pub for dinner.

  38. Arky

    Context is certainly important but there are many more Bible verses that could be cited, and if I have time tomorrow I will.

    ..
    This smells like a concession of the “sojourner” translation.
    ..

    The commandment not to kill didn’t have an ethnic qualifier.

    ..
    It doesn’t not have an implied ethnic qualifier, if one were to assume in the time of Moses they had little contact with furriners, except the ones they were expected to kill.
    ..

    26 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward[a] it, and the Lord swept them into the sea. 28 The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.

  39. Roger

    Don’t recall her ‘forcing’ her views on others, she had an opinion and voiced it.

    As she is entitled to do.

    If the limit of free speech is when it offends others we make the most sensitive the arbiters of our freedom.

  40. Roger

    It doesn’t not have an implied ethnic qualifier, if one were to assume in the time of Moses they had little contact with furriners, except the ones they were expected to kill.

    Now, there’s a very specific context to the verses you cite, arky, as you well know.

    More bush fires in NSW state forests. Why bother fighting these fires. Protect life and property and let the forests burn. How long since hazard reduction in forests?

    He also said the AFLW draws huge crowds.

    They do occasionally draw huge crowds. 53,004 watched the AWFL grand final this year and 41,975 attended a game at Optus Stadium last year.

    Of course attendance is free and most games have only a couple of thousand attending, but it is astonishing to me that anyone at all would go and watch such a non-spectacle.

    Next year there will be an extra four teams, so the standard will drop even further. I would be very surprised if that attendance record is ever broken.

  48. Geriatric Mayfly

    Five degrees G. (Gretagrade) here on the Plains of Sodom. If it was any more hotter there would be wild fires here as well, grass being the main engine and an absolute doozy for climate change.

    The Drum also agreed that because there are fires in NSW & Nappa Valley in California, that climate change is the culprit.

  51. Overburdened

    OK

    I understand now that someone would go on Tele to express their own ideas with no thought to persuade others around to their point of view.

    Thanks.

    I think the difference between the fuckwits and people like Margaret Court is that she wants what’s best and the fuckwits just want everyone to agree with them.

    Naturally, Margaret Court will pray for those that don’t agree with her and the fuckwits will kill those that disagree.

    New pictures show Stephen Hawking enjoying the hospitality of Jeffrey Epstein on the private Caribbean island

    Hands up those who think Stephen Hawking was in any fit state to take ‘full’ advantage of Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘hospitality’.

    A friend of dads was made quad about 25 years ago.
    Every year or so he stocks up on blue pills, books a room in Perth and finds a naughty, naughty girl to use them on.

    Has ended extremely badly for him on at least one occasion.
    red wine, chunder, being thrown off the bed and peed on while you imitate a smashed crab on the tiles wasnt his best effort. (or even requested).

    Also Apparently he was a bit of a freak in his tastes.
    https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-other-side-of-stephen-hawking-strippers-aliens-and-disturbing-abuse-claims

    Hawking became a regular at Stringfellows strip club in London, and the proprietor recalls a hilarious run-in with the professor one night.

    “I went and introduced myself and said, ‘Mr. Hawking, it’s an honor to meet you. If you could spare a minute or two, I’d love to chat with you about the universe,’” Stringfellow recalled.

    “Then I paused for a bit and joked, ‘Or would you rather look at the girls?’

    “There was silence for a moment, and then he answered, ‘The Girls.’”

    Hawking has also reportedly been spotted numerous times getting lap dances at the California strip club Devore, and was even said to have frequented Freedom Acres, a swinger’s club in California.

    “I have seen Stephen Hawking at the club more than a handful of times,” a member said, according to the Huffington Post. “He arrives with an entourage of nurses and assistants. Last time I saw him, he was in the back ‘play area’ lying on a bed fully clothed with two naked women gyrating all over him.”

  79. Peter, formerly known as Memoryvault

    Think Keating brought in s18c.

    Irrelevant who brought it in.
    In the 2013 election campaign Abbott held a special press conference to vow – not merely promise but vowed – to repeal 18C. Once elected one of his first acts was to call another press conference to announce he was reneging on repealing 18C.

    It was the start of a long line of broken election undertakings. Nonetheless, he’s back pretending again to be an actual “conservative” who actually gives a fvck about you, and a whole heap of Cats are lapping it up.

    Capturing carbon in the landscape is what Ross wants us to do.

  86. Beachcomber

    So the Morrison government is going to help farmers ruined by the government-created drought; by making them go further into debt to buy fresh water that was allocated to South Australia. Apparently this 100 Gl water is available because SA is building a desalination plant.

    Think about that. The MDBA flushes “environmental flows” of fresh river water onto bushland flats where the water inundates and kills the vegetation, and into the ocean to keep an estuarine lake artificially full of fresh water. Right next to this, the government is building a desalination plant to produce fresh water. The stupidity is overwhelming.

    The question is often asked: Have we reached peak stupidity? There is no peak to Green stupidity. It is an asymptotic trajectory of Green stupidity and it is rapidly crushing us.

    However it will support the awful, awful heat narrative about worming gerbil

    The less time children spend in that bolshevik brainwashing camp the better, honestly conservative minded people should be all for schools closing and children being free from them.

    Tulsi Gabbard is mighty impressive. If I were a flyover Democrat who voted for Trump in ’16, she could tempt me to return to the Blue fold.

    Trump will be hoping the DNC nobbles her, as it did Bernie. She’d give him a real run for his money.

    I think Trump would beat Tulsi on economic policy while still claiming to be anti-war because be brought home a handful of troops and killed off bin-Wheelie.

    Doesn’t matter, the Dems absolutely have to nobble Tulsi … they don’t control her, therefore unacceptable.

  130. Overburdened

    As previously mentioned a long time ago, possibly on this thread maybe, President Trump and Tulsi Gabbard should team up as much as they can and fuck the rest of them.

    Plenty of stocking fillers this year. Donald Trump Jnr’s new book Triggered, but there are others such as the latest edition of a classic

    The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama

    First published in 2016, this book has now been updated to include the entirety of Obama’s presidency, and the shocking details that have come to light since he left office.

    As Barack Obama’s presidential failures keep adding up, remembering them all can be a challenge. Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan have compiled everything you need to know about the presidency of Barack Obama (so far) into one book. Now you can easily find all the information that was ignored by the media and that Barack Obama would like you to forget. Did Barack Obama really save this country from another Great Depression? Did he really improve our country’s image around the world, or unite America? What about the new era of post-partisanship and government transparency? Did he really expand health coverage while lowering costs and cutting taxes? The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama compiles 200 inconvenient truths about Obama’s presidency-the facts that will shape his legacy: His real record on the economy; the disaster that is Obamacare; his shocking abuses of taxpayer dollars; his bitterly divisive style of governing; his shameless usurping of the Constitution; his scandals and cover ups; his policy failures at home and abroad; the unprecedented expansion of government power . . . and more.

    This is from the paywalled HS, but demonstrates that the ordinary people can still give a giant ‘fuck you’ to the offended:

    ‘An award-winning quilt at the Whittlesea Show has drawn the ire of one of the country’s leading civil rights organisations due to its racist connotations. The quilt, which won ‘most outstanding exhibit’ in the patchwork quilt category, depicts 24 golliwogs from 24 different countries. The American golliwog is depicted to be lassoing a Native American-Indian, while the golliwog from New Zealand is shown to be doing the haka.

    ‘Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dr Dvir Abramovich said it was a sad day “when the organisers of the Whittlesea Show failed to acknowledge that awarding prizes to items that promote demeaning and humiliating stereotypes is beyond offensive”.

    ‘“There is nothing excellent or ‘high standard’ about works of art that showcase destructive caricatures and attitudes that should be consigned to the dustbin of history,” Dr Abramovich said. “It is absolutely obscene that there are people who are not only making such articles, but public events that openly celebrate such racist images.” He said it was Australia’s collective duty to send a “resounding message that these degrading materials have no room in our community”.

    ‘“Imagine the pain an indigenous Australian, and many others, would feel confronted with this blatant expression of bigotry,” he said.’

    Yes, yes, yes, Doctor. The problem with this concept is there aren’t any indig on the golliquilt.

    “We call on the Whittlesea Show to apologise for the hurt caused and ensure that such disturbing episodes do not occur again.”

    Offence identified, albeit no actual offence was caused. Words said. Job done, you’d think – but the good doctor didn’t factor in the CWA baring their fangs:

    ‘Secretary to the Whittlesea Show Agricultural Society, Rose Stark, said the piece was selected purely based on “the execution and excellence/high standard of the workmanship”.

    ‘“We as an organisation do not discriminate based on race, religion, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, pregnancy, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression,” she said.’

    If the Anti-Defamation Spetsnaz had their way, every entry would be a collection of equally beige tiles sewed together with cismale sinew. The Whittlesea Show will endure.

    Our Pauline rips the BoM a new arse about their temperature fiddling bullshit:

    https://www.facebook.com/dallas.beaufort.71/posts/146924883355122

    Pauline Hanson The Spectator Australia 9 November 2019

    If we are being asked to shut down our coal export industry and the 48 coal turbines that supply 75 per cent of our electricity and commit economic suicide, then the least we can expect is that state weather records from the colonial era are freely available. One Nation has long questioned the justification for ignoring the observational records collected by the colonial meteorological services from the mid-1800s.

    While the Commonwealth Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) acknowledges the existence of these colonial instrumental records, it argues that the observations do not meet the commensurable rule; that is measured by the same standard. Without a same standard for observing equipment, these pre-1910 measurements, they say, cannot become part of the official weather records of Australia.

    In the past one hundred years or so since BOM was formed, technology has changed, thermometers have changed, practices have changed, weather stations have moved location, urbanisation has created a heat island effect around some weather stations, new weather stations have been installed in new locations and old weather stations have been abandoned.

    All of these changes by definition violate BOM’s commensurable rule. What to do? BOM has done what most weather services do and that is to make an exception to the commensurable rule and overcome all the variations by applying a process known as ‘homogenisation’. Homogenisation is simply the application of assumptions which lead to changes in the raw data.

    If BOM’s post-1910 data can be made useful through homogenisation then what stops the same process being applied to the colonial states pre-1910 records?

    The Met Office is the UK’s national weather service and through its Hadley Centre has developed the longest instrumental record of temperatures in the world known as the Central England Temperature dataset (HadCET). It records monthly mean surface temperatures for the Midlands region of England from 1659, but the records have been homogenised and are not the original raw observations. If the UK can create a single temperature record back to 1659 what stops BOM doing the same back to 1855?

    Better still why not leave the raw data alone for anyone to see and footnote it with qualifications, so that those who come after us can find the unadulterated information?

    BOM cannot argue the quality of the raw colonial state measurements was poor, because Australia has some of the most meticulous and detailed weather records in the world from the mid-1800s thanks to Charles Todd (1826-1910) who arrived here in 1855 from the Greenwich Observatory near London….

    Malcolm Roberts had a hand in this and Malcom will have get his info from a team of tenacious researchers including Jo Nova who have been scrutinising the guts out of the stream of consciousness which the BoM considers a temperature record. The team has produced some comparative graphs showing the temperature alterations the BoM has made between the raw data, ACORN 1 and ACORN 2 which will knock your socks off when you see them (eg here); the extent of the fraud is astounding and the results can be seen when dim pollies like scomo give renewables a $1billion

    1 in 4? Really? No. I’m pulling the bullshit card on that. 1 in 4 people means 50% of women.

    Unless of course, they factor in the dead babies, that might bring it a bit closer (though that is obviously not their point).

    The Samaritan debate is easy indeed.
    There are a whole bunch of people on here, bizarrely including Christians, arguing that there is nothing special about the Christian brand of “decent”.
    Why, before Christianity everyone was already decent, and we have nothing to fear about Christian decency disappearing alone with Christianity, because ten commandments and God created man.
    Jesus, apparently, was crucified for spouting a lot of obvious motherisms that everyone, all of whom were hippies, already knew.

  169. Knuckle Dragger

    Don’t disagree, Arky.

    My life experience should probably indicate otherwise, but I think the vast majority of people getting around are decent whether pagan or Christian or whatever. Always have been. That said, I haven’t been totally immersed in anything other than Western societies.

    But if it comes down to actual survival, savagery beats decency hands down.

    I also think – nay, believe, that Western societies are more decent than others because we can afford it. The same way we can afford XR, gormless greens and the other detritus that currently this one.

    Make no mistake. When the power goes out for good and it comes down to feeding someone who can fix a truck or a fireman or a soldier, or feeding a useless fat sack of shit who contributes nothing, then you know who’s going to get a third eye socket.
