    Technically Logan is a city not a town. But the entire Logan City Council has been sacked by the State government anyway – which could give them the edge. Logan Central is basically Kingston and Woodridge, with the retail district dissecting the two and that retail area renamed as Logan Central. This is hardcore bogan territory.

    If Biden was a tough bloke with conviction to his party’s cause, he would have not been passive aggressive at the reporter/ questioner.

    He would have said, ‘and this is another example of the need for abortion’.

    Mr NBN:

    Malcolm Turnbull accuses politicians of exploiting people’s fear of change
    AAP The Australian November 22, 2019
    Technology is outside the comfort zone of Scott Morrison but he is playing a pivotal role in innovation, says Malcolm Turnbull. Mr Turnbull made the remark in a speech at the StartCon technology conference in Sydney on Friday. He said some politicians think they need to exploit people’s fear of change to win power. However denying the importance of innovation is like denying the reality of climate change.
    The former Australian prime minister talked up his government’s science and innovation agenda at the Sydney conference, saying some had encouraged him to avoid the topic of innovation when he held the top job. They told him Australians would worry about a computer taking their job.
    “Well, that is a political reality and there are people that exploit fear of change in every environment and this rise of populism – rise of protectionism around the world – is a feature of that,” he told StartCon.
    “But, believe me, denying change – in denying the importance of innovation – is like denying climate change – it’s denying reality.”
    The world is changing. “If you want to deny the changes that are around you then you will get taken over.”
    Mr Turnbull said Australia had a much stronger innovation and venture capitalism ecosystem than five years ago, with many start-up companies valued at over $1 billion.
    Asked how he rated the current prime minister’s performance on innovation, Mr Turnbull said it wasn’t Scott Morrison’s comfort zone and he didn’t “have the background or enthusiasm for it that I did”.
    However he acknowledged Mr Morrison was treasurer when the government agreed on its national innovation and science agenda.
    “You need persistent advocacy but it helps if you actually have a background in it and have an understanding,” Mr Turnbull said.
    “I think for a lot of people, they find technical areas baffling and don’t, you know … they can’t get their head around it.”
    Mr Turnbull said Australia’s comparative advantages included its people, its multicultural society and a “huge opportunity” in energy.
    “We have reached an inflection point in energy where we can become a very, very cheap, clean energy economy,” he said.
    “We’ll move away from coal. I know there are people who’ve got sentimental attachment to that, but basically we are now in a position … where the cost of variable renewables, particularly solar, keeps on coming down.”

    Trump’s greatest mistake was not firing every Obama appointee day one.

    Kinda hard to run a government with no one in it.

    AG Barr: The Left Trying To “Sabotage” Trump With A Scorched Earth War Of Resistance (16 Nov)

    A prime example of this is the Senate’s unprecedented abuse of the advice-and-consent process. The Senate is free to exercise that power to reject unqualified nominees, but that power was never intended to allow the Senate to systematically oppose and draw out the approval process for every appointee so as to prevent the President from building a functional government.

    Yet that is precisely what the Senate minority has done from his very first days in office. As of September of this year, the Senate had been forced to invoke cloture on 236 Trump nominees — each of those representing its own massive consumption of legislative time meant only to delay an inevitable confirmation. How many times was cloture invoked on nominees during President Obama’s first term? 17 times. The Second President Bush’s first term? Four times. It is reasonable to wonder whether a future President will actually be able to form a functioning administration if his or her party does not hold the Senate.

    Every cloture vote on appointments required 30 hours of debate, which the Democrats then did. That is 30 x 236 = 7,080 hours of deliberation of the DC phone book over and over.

    How Trump has gotten done what he has achieved is a miracle. I just hope he’s found an AG with the iron dick needed to ream these people like John Henry and his steel drill.

    Bahahaaaaa.

    From your own link, 8th Danielle…..

    ‘Deputy state coroner Derek Lee found Mr Dungay died from cardiac arrhythmia, with contributing factors including his Type 1 diabetes, antipsychotic medication and extreme stress and agitation.’

    You could almost classify these things as suicides.
    Poor choices of career (wannabe crooks but no good at it).
    No impulse control (diabetes type 1 who eats shit food, takes drugs).
    Anger management problems (wants to blue with screws).
    I just feel sorry for the poor screws who had to deal with him.

    That David Dungay death is bullshit. Every gaol inmate should have an inexhaustible supply of sweet biscuits.

    Harridan vs Harridan on The View

    Meg throws down

    “One of the things that I pride myself in is that we can’t get too sucked into the beltway and the media circles,” McCain began. “What I saw last night on the debate stage is not going to be good enough to beat him. You all are very convinced, ‘he’s crazy, he’s whatever.’ He’s always been crazy like a fox. I knew he was going to win in 2016 and I’m telling you right now, if you think this impeachment hearing and everything with Sondland and the 30,000 cast of characters — which, by the way, every day is ticking lower and lower on ratings. If you think this is enough to have it locked and loaded, you are naive!”

    If it’s a bit boring, ff to 23:10 to marvel at Hakuho.

    None can stop him from winning the Basho.

    Being a 192cm tall, 158kg Yokozuna gives one confidence.

    Being a Mongolian and a ball of muscle, I don’t doubt he gets some small sense of pride for being probably one of the greatest Yokozuna ever.

  36. Zippy:
    I’m not really sure that President Trump can do all that much if China does do a re enactment of Tienanmen Square.
    Certainly he could ban trade with China, and it would be advantageous to do so – the re-industrialisation of the US would be a fabulous thing to see.
    Perhaps recognising Taiwan would push President Xi Jinping over the edge, Xi is, as I have said before, exhibiting signs of being “an old man in a hurry” and this may affect his judgement.

  37. Siltstone

    Overdurdened, love the Kyushu basho clip. Hakuho is very quick.

  38. Every cloture vote on appointments required 30 hours of debate, which the Democrats then did. That is 30 x 236 = 7,080 hours of deliberation of the DC phone book over and over.

    On those stats Trump should be given an extra year as President, which will be till Jan 19 2026. Actually fuck it, just give him a third term.

    Not exactly a Catictionary definition but Pascoe’s book should be referred to as “The Protocols of the Elders of Aborigines”.

    Pascoe’s book pushes the theme that the indigenous lived in stone huts, in villages of up to a thousand or more, domesticated animals and planted crops – that they were far more sophisticated then the Stone age “hunter gatherers” that evil debbil debbil white man has made them out to be. It’s one of half a dozen or so books, just released, to push the case for a “Voice”, constitutional recognition, a treaty, massive reparations, and a separate, sovereign Aboriginal State.

    Yes I know. My point is Pascoe’s history is as fake as The Protocols and will remain as “fact” for those who choose to believe it in order to justify their agenda. The message might be different on the surface but the agenda is the same.

    People say history repeats itself. It doesn’t. Otherwise we would not progress (not the leftard definition of progress). But history rhymes and is so rhythmic it becomes a mirror. For example, name 2 invented flags representing a mythical race with red, black and a circle in the middle.

    Only one of those fake racist flags remain and we fly them above our Parliament.

    The fake history of Aryans v Jews is now being reverse mirrored as pure bloods with a noble past versus dirty invaders who destroyed a (fake and noble) past.

    Last month the Deep State didn’t even exist … and if you so much as glanced in their general direction you were a weirdo conspiracy theorist. Yes, conspiracy! Booga Booga!!

    Now, hey it does exist, no big deal … very principled people. Conspiracy theory forgotten.

    So yeah … now we are here … ahhh, let’s ummm, have a list of these really impressive, principled people and the principled things they have been doing with their principles. What are their principles anyhow? Might be interesting.

    Way back when, in the mid 1970’s – the guardroom, at a certain military establishment – at 0700 hours – got a phone call from a unit N.C.O.

    “I’m putting one of my blokes under close arrest, he’s turned up on duty as pissed as a fart.”

    Subsequently emerged that the miserable wretch had won just over a million dollars in the State Lottery – in the mid 1970’s – and didn’t really want to serve Her Majesty any more..

    For every hour that thou wilt spare me now,
    I will allow,
    Usurious god of love, twenty to thee,
    When with my brown my gray hairs equal be.
    Till then, Love, let my body range, and let
    Me travel, sojourn, snatch, plot, have, forget,
    Resume my last year’s relict ; think that yet
    We’d never met.
    Let me think any rival’s letter mine,
    And at next nine
    Keep midnight’s promise ; mistake by the way
    The maid, and tell the lady of that delay ;
    Only let me love none ; no, not the sport
    From country grass to confitures of court,
    Or city’s quelque-choses ; let not report
    My mind transport.

    This bargain’s good ; if when I’m old, I be
    Inflamed by thee,
    If thine own honour, or my shame and pain,
    Thou covet most, at that age thou shalt gain.
    Do thy will then ; then subject and degree
    And fruit of love, Love, I submit to thee.
    Spare me till then ; I’ll bear it, though she be
    One that love me.

    –Donne
