    Oh Happy Payback Day ZK2A

    Better the dribble from real Aborigines than pretend ones eh?

    Cashman receives special tribal status from the tribal patriarchy (note J Price’s recent articles and CIS speech also referencing Pascoe authored Ngarra Lore (Law) of ArnhemLand *a completely different Pascoe*

    The land selected Josephine Cashman for a leadership role and she has benefited from a Yolnga discipline ceremony to prepare her for a leadership role. Josephine is the only woman to have done so. We call her the connector and her Yolgna name is Bomba Marika (or the butterfly). She has sacred medicine women protecting her and therefore she is unafraid to walk alone. cf: Bolt’s article *note ‘discipline ceremony

    Terry Gurrumul was the subject of an FCA case (?under von Doussa) of the 1988 commemorative Bicentenary $ 10 note- featuring the Morning Star Yumbulul vs The Reserve Bank of Australia. I expect that intellectual property rights have now been righted on Australia Day. As it has also been for Marika (Carpet), tshirts etc etc etc ,

    Marcia Langton, well that is to be determined, given her links with the Arnhemland term makarrata, the Uluru Statement and ‘close ties’ with the ailing Mr Yunupingu. Maybe she is looking for retirement ………. with a hand? Seriously may limit her geographical post-retirement consult tours though? She’ll have to opt for consultancy on legal given her vast experience. And to ‘indigenous only access to archives & information’.

    Lest we forget? 75 years after Auschwitz, too many do
    By Alex Ryvchin
    January 26, 2020 — 12.05am

    On the eve of Monday’s 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, a new study has found that a quarter of French millennials haven’t heard of the Holocaust, while an earlier study of American millennials found that 66 per cent did not know what Auschwitz was.

    Leaving aside Danielle (who is Portuguese – I know this because she uses a handle and can’t be identified*) and her latest failed comeback in relation to legislation:

    I must away to a social event. The hosts are two punters who have two American staffies. Beautiful dogs.

    Two months back another mate of a mate, who I must say is a complete ponce, insisted on leaving his own derg there while he went on holidays. My mate says are you sure, because they’ll be in the yard together all day and there might be a bit of biff. Ponce says sure. No worries. I know my dog. No dramas.

    The ponce’s dog is something called a French Bulldog. Apparently the size of a shih Tzu but looks vaguely like a bulldog.

    Mate’s neighbour related, from his eyeb#ll view over the fence, that ten minutes after my mate had left for work, French Bulldog started some shit – ie, repeatedly getting in the face of one amstaff and nipping him on the nose. Yip yip yip etc.

    This went on for half an hour before both amstaffs killed and ate the bulldog.

    Ponce is now trying to hit up mate for the alleged cost of the French Bulldog. $8000.

    Ponce has zero chance, although I’m going to ask my mate for eight gorillas when I get there just to piss him off.

    That’s right, you can’t have a big gun rack that everyone can just stand their guns in when they’re not shooting. Everyone is supposed to trudge back to their cars and lock them up when they’re not shooting.

    That is the case for long arms. Short arms can be worn unloaded in a holster, if one has a holster qualification.

    But let’s face it, the process is the punishment; if the wallopers turned up at a club and a few members are walking around outside the range with their revolver/pistol in a holster and the wallopers charge them with something the court process would ruin most people.

    1. Terry Yumbulul had signed a licence permitting someone else to market his work and authorise others to reproduce it. Suggest things that could be written into such a licence to better protect Aboriginal artists.
    2. Yumbulul was clearly surprised and dismayed by what happened to his work. What things occurred that he had not foreseen?
    3.Whose responsibility do you think it was to ensure that Yumbulul’s work was treated with the respect that he expected?

    New patriots

    Tanya Plibersek has sparked outrage among left-wing commentators for declaring she is a patriot who wants children to learn about the nation’s citizenship pledge. (The Australian)

    Here is the pledge Tanya supports: “From this time forward, I pledge my loyalty to Australia and its people, whose democratic beliefs I share, whose rights and liberties I respect, and whose laws I will uphold and obey”.

    Here are the marxist totalitarian leftist scum who are ripping into her:
    * a senior Andrews government MP
    * Novelist Jane Caro
    * ABC radio presenter Wendy Harmer
    * Guardian Australia columnist Greg Jericho
    * ABC TV presenter Julia Zemiro
    * Political satirist Shaun Micallef
    * Greens senator Mehreen Faruqi

    Only supported by Victoria’s Trade Minister Martin Pakula. I’d say Tanya is on her way to becoming a keeper.

  25. We’ve had a little bit of rain up here and the lawn has gone from dead as buggery to little tufts of green grass. No kidding, the grass was that dead the dead stalks were pushing through the thongs and sticking into the feet.
    So now the weeds have self selected for extermination with the Zero spray, and I spent the morning putting down the weeds.
    Had just finished and there was a bolt of lightning and a torrential downpour washing the poison off the weeds.

    Quick burials and lack of tests raise fears coronavirus outbreak is much bigger than China admits

    The corpse of Chen Min was wrapped in a yellow body bag with tape when it was delivered to the funeral home by workers in hazmat suits. The staff disinfected the van they travelled in and disposed of protective gear.

    Despite being pressured into a quick cremation by authorities, the grieving family did not know if the 65-year-old had died from the novel coronavirus sweeping China. And they still don’t.

    The swift disposal of Ms Chen’s body raises further questions about the scale of the problem.

    Ms Chen’s fever and cough had set in only ten days before.

    For those who wondered where the anti-Australia Day protests went:

    Sydney Invasion Day protest.
    Tens of thousands of people, including Indigenous NRL players Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker marched from Sydney’s CBD to Camperdown chanting “change the date” and “always was, always will be Aboriginal land.”
    (The Telegraph)

    I watched the embedded video in the Tele’s article and rest assured the activists are firmly generating a serious us v them mentality.

    Great letter over on Bolt (in an open thread) from leader of another Aboriginal tribal group disowning Pacscoe and criticising Wyatt and Marcia Langton. Also refutes the fake history of Dark and Young Emu and criticises it’s use in schools.

    Wyatt has also suggested he can sack somebody from his advisory panel which is a reference to Cashman who reported Pacscoe. So telling the truth clearly not “truth telling”.

    Wyatt is gutless and is betraying his own people by supporting Pascoe. If he is the Minister responsable for Reconcilition etc he has proven he is incapable and is not going to get non Aboriginal support for anything.

    Unfortunately no way PM can sack Wyatt but PM certainly needs to have a word in his ear as he is making a fool of himself and the Govt in the face of facts and a backlash from tribes Pascoe claims to belong to.

    What the groups need to do is get their leaders together to write a joint complaint to Police and include the family tree of Pascoe as part of their submission. Specify each award or grant he has received by claiming Aboriginallity. The say so of Wyatt and Langton is not evidence.

    Federal Education and Culture Ministers need to sort out the ABC over their planned doco based on fake history. School patent teacher associations also need to check if this drivel is being promoted in their schools and fight against it.

    Mitchell and Walker need to reflect on the fact that, pre 1770, a couple of young fellows like them would have been virtually slaves to the old men of the tribe, and subject to the most brutal of tribal punishment for even daring to challenge them, in any way, and subject to all the endless taboos and restrictions of tribal life.

    If this is the one that had the big display set up in Victoria Park Darlington near Sydney Uni there’s no way it would have attracted 10’s of thousands. The area would have catered for possibly thousands though I’d say more like hundreds. I drove past it this morning on the way to pick up a mate flying into Sydney airport & back past a few hours later with only a handful of people there then.

    I remember thinking for a bunch that screech about conservatives living in the ’50’s in white picket fences these guys are still rooted in the class warfare of the 19th century or in this case a lost cause 232 years ago. Go figure…

    Nobuyuki Tsujii piano performance
     
    Nobuyuki Tsujii was born blind due to microphthalmia. From an early age, he exhibited exceptional talent and musical ability. At age two, he began to play “Do Re Mi” on a toy piano after hearing his mother hum the tune. He began formal piano study at the age of four. In 1995, at age seven, Tsujii won the first prize at the All Japan Music of Blind Students by the Tokyo Helen Keller Association. In 1998, at age ten, he debuted with the Century Orchestra, Osaka.
     
    He gave his first piano recital in the small hall of Tokyo’s Suntory Hall at age 12.
    In addition to being a pianist, Tsujii is a composer. At age 12, he performed his own composition “Street Corner of Vienna”.
     
    Tsujii learns new musical works strictly by ear. A 2009 Time article explains: “Certainly, being blind hasn’t made it easy. Tsujii can use Braille music scores to learn new pieces, but this kind of translation is usually done by volunteers. Because demand is so low, the variety of scores available does not meet the needs of a professional performer, so Tsujii has devised his own method. A team of pianists records scores along with specific codes and instructions written by composers, which Tsujii listens to and practices until he learns and perfects each piece.¹

    Being detained under the Mental Health Act is sometimes called being ‘sectioned’, because the law has different sections.

    Your rights under the Mental Health Act depend on which section you are detained under.

    So, if you walk into my rooms waving a leaflet in Farsi and yelling “I called in the B52s on those Afghan farmers”, then you can bet your bippy you’re gonna get sectioned.

    No-one is gonna tell you you’re gonna get “scheduled”, or that you’ve been “scheduled”. The word they will use is … sectioned.

    We just came home from watching Australia Day celebration from a boat on the Sydney Harbour. Very few Australian flags this year compared to previous years when most water craft were all a flutter with flags. What’s more, Barangaroo Reserve was covered in hundreds of aboriginal flags and not a single Australian flag. The tall ships flew the aboriginal flags and only one also had an Australian flag. Obviously the order went out that the aboriginal flag is now the official flag but they “forgot” to inform the public.

    Wonderful celebratory lunch with much food, music and patriotic pride. Usual my-flag’s-bigger-than-your-flag face-offs, and superb entertainment from our talented SiL and granddaughters. Everything from Dylan to Slim Dusty, with Space Odyssey commanding an encore this year.

    This tops off a fun week, the highlight being another family lunch (hot-dogs this time) before we all stood in our driveway cheering on the cyclists in the Tour Down Under. Athletic granddaughter now wants to lead the pel0ton, while (almost) aspy grandson was blown away by all the police cars and motorbikes with sirens blaring. #2 g/daughter was working in the after school job she’s had for over three years, while #3 (the ten year old) was writing up the 27 times tables, as you do for fun.

    No-one is gonna tell you you’re gonna get “scheduled”, or that you’ve been “scheduled”. The word they will use is … sectioned.

    That’ll come as news to EVERY SINGLE acute ward mental health nurse in NSW.
    The link I provided was clear. Stop squirming.

    There are a number of steps to this process, beginning with getting the person to hospital for an assessment. In most cases, in order for a person to be brought to hospital against their will, a ‘Schedule 1’ needs to be completed. A Schedule 1 is a legal document that, once completed, means that a person can be taken to and detained at a declared mental health facility against their will, so that a further assessment of their mental state can be made. A Schedule 1 must be completed by a doctor or a specially qualified mental health worker (an Accredited Person) who has personally examined or observed the person. You may hear this referred to as ‘scheduling’ someone, or that the person has been ‘scheduled’.

    You really are a dead shit. Happy Australia Day.

    Mr Wiliams’ citation is as follows: For distinguished service to science as a journalist, radio presenter and author, and to education.

    Roselle, BTW, is Sydney harbour-side suburb. Williams clearly isn’t worried about risings sea levels.

    I’m surprised – to put it mildly – to see that even Robyn Williams’ latest gong is honorary. He has never taken out Australian citizenship.

    Sydney Invasion Day protest.
    Tens of thousands of people, including Indigenous NRL players Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker marched from Sydney’s CBD to Camperdown chanting “change the date” and “always was, always will be Aboriginal land.” (The Telegraph)

    I watched the embedded video in the Tele’s article and rest assured the activists are firmly generating a serious us v them mentality.

    And causing the Sydney Light Rail to not function again…

    That’ll come as news to EVERY SINGLE acute ward mental health nurse in NSW.

    It certainly won’t … and when you’ve been sectioned, as you surely will be if you keep this shit up … you’ll find that out first hand.

    PS. The nurses don’t do the sectioning. Just one doctor at first, then when you’ve been assessed and your gibbering mental state confirmed … two doctors will section you. That means you’ll be confined for treatment … they might even put you in a straight jacket.

  82. Zyconoclast

    Mitchell and walker can get stuffed. Every advantage these arseholes have got, every benefit, is from Western culture. Get naked boys and get the nulla nullas out.

    Mitchell and Walker need to reflect on the fact that, pre 1770, a couple of young fellows like them would have been virtually slaves to the old men of the tribe, and subject to the most brutal of tribal punishment for even daring to challenge them, in any way, and subject to all the endless taboos and restrictions of tribal life.

    Better still, ‘sportsball’ needs to be relegated and compensated to the level of backyard cricket.

    oh

    I sold aussie and bought the US Dollar. Always, in a time of panic and disruption, the greenback is your friend. 🙂

    vr, whenever someone says they shorted.. sold the Aussie , just assume they are buying US dollars against it unless they state otherwise.

    Any rain out your way, Winston?

  192. Consensus forecasts unfortunately help useless managers in the forecasting firms to make forecasts…which they then consesusise again. It’s like a slow motion algo trading wreck.

  193. cohenite

    Shorted the Aussie – not shorting as it’s the weekend and markets are closed. Cronkite, explain what it is you’re trying to convey here as you’re no making any sense.

    It’s all the same to me head prefect; I print my own; it works out cheaper in the long run.

    Answer vr’s question.

  194. Crossie

    From the Hun:
    ‘Matildas goalkeeper Lydia Williams has urged the FFA to better engage with rural and indigenous communities to help grow the women’s game.’

    How about the reverse, whereby indigenous people move to areas where there are opportunities not only for sport but job prospects? It isn’t hard if you show you are keen for work and a better life.

    Leaving aboriginals in remote communities is counterproductive in every sense. There is nothing there to make them self sufficient so all their food and provisions have to be supplied from the outside the community.

    The young people are not that cut off from the mainstream, they know there is a different life out there yet they are prevented from taking part in it.

    The only salvation for aboriginals is to come out of the wilderness and join the rest of us. Ironically, the footballers who are indulging in the “invasion day” protests have benefited from just such opportunities yet they seem hellbent on preventing others following in their footsteps.

  195. Feelthebern:

    I expect things to remain mostly civil.
    Until pubs & bottle-o’s are closed.
    Then it’s a total break down.

    Shit.
    That’s what I forgot.
    Booze.
    Stocks are:
    Slabs x 2
    Scotch x 3
    Gin x 1 – Does gin go off? this ones bottled in 1983, August. I don’t think the month matters much.
    Red Wine x 28 bottles.
    OK. The wines a bit low, but the rest is problematic. Must shop.

    You encouraged me to talk wifey into stocking up on a bunch of canned food. We drove to the supermarket and stocked up a bunch. 500 bucks later.

    The dude at the cashier observed we were buying a lot of canned tuna.

  199. Booze.
    Stocks are:
    Scotch x 26
    Beer x 7

    I’ll make it.

    I did, you nimrod.

    Go to bed, as you’re drunk and really annoying me now.

  202. feelthebern

    Not much point having beer when there’s no more power.
    Unless you can store it in a cool water tank maybe.
    Best to stock up on booze that can be traded with useful people like tradies.
    Easier for you to barter with some Jim Beam that some toff trying to barter with a bottle of plonk.

  203. feelthebern

    I think he is still travelling overseas.

    He’s done for.

    JC — Could have bought Yen/GBP/EUR. I should have guessed USD though you have been buying the Yen a bit.

  212. feelthebern

    I’ve stocked up on lots of:
    water;
    toilet paper;
    rice in packets you nuke for 90 secs;
    tinned tuna;
    dog food.
    I have a lot of coffee already so no need to top up on that.
    Plus lots of left over booze from Christmas.
    Don’t forget to stock up on the coffee & smokes, even if you don’t smoke.
    Cigarettes are possibly more valuable than toilet paper when it comes to a barter economy.

    While they washed my car downstairs, I had a pretty clean run.
    No lining up at the check out either.

    A man diagnosed with Wuhan coronavirus near Seattle is being treated largely by a robot
    Washington state health officials confirmed Thursday that they have reached out to 43 people considered “close contacts” of the 30-year-old man, who identified the people he had interacted with since returning from Wuhan, China. Those contacts will be called daily and actively monitored for signs of any illness.

  218. feelthebern

    Fuck Zippy.
    What happens when the robot infects the other robots.
    Skynet, that’s what.

  219. feelthebern

    Trivia question.
    When did the Yen de-peg from the USD?

  220. EvilElvis

    Every Cat should do a toilet paper check.
    Unless you have enough in your household to keep you sorted for a month, you’re in trouble.

    My ‘better half’ always laughs in dismay at my ability to store food for years after its best before date. She accuses me of being a prepper. Those 3 year out of date food stuffs aren’t looking bad now are they toots!

  221. Tintarella di Luna

    Just use the old Age papers as toilet paper.

    Just like the Sydney Moaning Haemorrhoid wouldn’t The Age be totally useless for that purpose given that it’s already chockers full of that terrible smelly stuff?

  222. JC

    I’ve stocked up on lots of:

    Lol.

    Bought :

    toilet paper
    packet rice. Love the basmati rice
    Meat for the us and the dog. If it becomes a full blown panic the freaking dog is not getting that meat. I’m eating it. The fucker can live off water.
    Canned tuna, beans, sardines
    Lavazza was selling cheaply, according to wifey so we bought 3 large packs of the gold.
    Eggs… organic too 🙂 (That should send Irma Grese hogwild in anger).
    lots of cheeses in packets.
    Some other shit too. Can’t recall.

  223. JC

    When did the Yen de-peg from the USD?

    1971(ish). When Nixon went of the gold standard and the US dollar floated.

  224. cohenite

    and really annoying me now.

    Good, maybe you won’t be so low energy. You’re the Jeb Bush of this site.

    I blame you for Cronkite flipping out. If you had remained silent about his snuff movies obsession, he wouldn’t be pestering me like he is and wanting my attention all the freaking time. He’s so fucking needy now and you made him like this. Good work.

    Parents should start thinking about ranking their children & having an acceptable loss ratio.
    This will save time if faced with the unthinkable at a later date.

  228. Stimpson J. Cat

    Just think of how much you’ll be able to sell that Labradoodle for to the Chinese when the food runs out JC.
    Millions!

  229. Zyconoclast

    I also went to a bottle-o.
    Apart from an old duck buying gin, the place was empty.

    Did you doxx yourself as an old duck?

  230. JC

    Hope you bought some food for the lizard JC.

    Hahaha the lizard. We had someone cleaning the house and the garden there and they found the fucking thing in another room. They threw it out in the garden. Great work, because if it found a way of getting in the house from underneath it will be back in again. Morons. I would have thrown it in the bin and closed the lid.

    Yep, 1971.

    It a really funny story behind that. The Frogs showed up late in the week demanding the US make good on the Frog credits they had accumulated in gold. Nixon and Connolly – the treasury secretary- turned around on the weekend and floated the Dollar. The frogs never got their gold.

    That would have to be the biggest flake in the history of modern finance.

    I think it’s BS the virus came from the food market, according to the news Xi is peeking about the spread of the virus, they know what it is and what it can do they just couldn’t keep the lid on it, reaction is a bit over the top for a food market virus.
