    I read somewhere last week that already representations are being made for it to be available for civil cases, because otherwise travesties of justice would occur. Already, nosy local councils can access it, presumably to catch hooligans who have not paid their dog licence.

    Goes back a few years ago, but a certain prominent Social Justice Warrior here, in the Wild West was gravely saying that, in the interests of reconciliation, all land titles to agricultural land should be declared null and void, and farmers be prepared to re – negotiate those titles with the traditional owners of that land. She was aghast when asked if she would be leading by example, regarding her house in the leafy suburbs. That was HER house – she’d PAID for that land.

    Gerard Henderson in the Oz:

    Great story today by Amos Aikman in The Australian following Matt Cunningham’s story on Sky News’ The Bolt Report last night.

    It seems that the ABC, or persons acting on behalf of the ABC, attempted to gag former Northern Territory minister John Elferink’s submission to the royal commission on the Don Dale Youth Detention Centre in the Northern Territory. Mr Elferink told the royal commission that ABC Four Corners reporter Caro Meldrum-Hanna had said that her program would not be a “hatchet job” but would be “balanced” because she was bound by the highest editorial and journalistic standards in the country. As it turned out, the Four Corners report was a hatchet job and a misleading one at that.

    Little wonder that someone acting on behalf of the ABC, or seeking to protect the ABC, attempted to have Mr Elferink’s submissions redacted. No doubt ABC management will go into denial on this matter as is its habit when ABC journalists are criticised for unprofessional standards and a green-left mind set.

    I hope Bolt pursues Waleed Aly for his comments tonight on the AFP ‘accidentally’ using the meta-data of a journalist (illegally). Why? Because, Aly explained, police/intelligence agencies can monitor who a target speaks to and when (plus where) – without necessarily monitoring a conversation per se – and then leak those connections to the media to undermine their mark.

    On the eve of Pope Francis’s visit to Egypt, Pope Benedict XVI has broken his silence, condemning radical Islam as creating an “explosive situation’’ challenging the future of Europe.

    The retired pope’s words contrast sharply with those of his successor, Francis, who argues that “Muslim terrorism does not exist’’ and it is not “right to identify Islam with violence’’.

    He should never have stood aside.

    On the earlier subject about jeans. Despite what that sometimes idiot, Artiste says about me. I don’t wear creased jeans.

    This convoluted nonsense goes back perhaps 5 odd years ago when I mentioned that wifey was away and the ironing lady was too. So I took my washing to ma and she ironed a center crease in my jeans. Since then he’s plaguing me with the same accusation.. along with other assorted and related nonsense.

    I do wear jeans and I’m over 40. The only off the rack brand I buy are 7 For All Mankind, as they do make an effort to fit older people well.. I also had jeans made to measure by 3X1 who have their shop in SOHO NYC. They fit perfectly, but expensive. Chinos are fucking gay.

  57. val majkus says:

    an end to judicial activism?

    President Trump has issued two executive orders directing a temporary halt to immigration from certain countries along with the most recent order to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities and counties.

    The travel-related orders have been challenged in federal court and have been stayed by activist federal judges using the flimsy pretext that these E.O.s are an abridgement of the immigrant’s constitutional right to religious freedom.
    Forget for a moment that the subjects of these E.O.s aren’t American citizens, therefore are not entitled to protections under our Constitution, and focus instead on the functional result of such a brazen attack on the separation of powers. The basis for these orders is not religion, but rather the lack of functioning governments in these nations from whom we can gather sufficient information to adequately vet their émigrés.

    The order to withhold funds has also been challenged and subjected to a stay.

    President Trump correctly believes that it is his duty to prevent the wrong-headed importation of potentially dangerous individuals and to halt the ongoing subsidizing of local governments enabling illegality.

    The left (predictably!) lost their minds. In their rush to oppose all things Trump, they turned to their primary method of implementing policy – the courts – usurping powers constitutionally vested in the office of the president. The hubris of the activist wing of the judiciary has long been troubling, but this presumptive, arrogant overreach is unprecedented.

    No intellectually honest interpretation of the Constitution or applicable law can provide a rational basis for just one of nearly 3,000 federal judges to have the power to exercise a de jure veto over over the actions of the president in the course of his duties as commander-in-chief – especially when the existing law so clearly and unequivocally grants the president the statutory authority to act in the specific manner the judge is presuming to stay.

    While such egregious misuse of the judicial power constitutes an impeachable offense, there is an easier and less protracted means of reining in these black-robed tyrants.

    Congress can, under their broad authority to govern the inferior courts, strip the federal courts of their jurisdiction over executive action when the president is exercising the statutorily granted power to suspend or modify entry to the United States.

    Simply put, Congress established the lower courts and can modify (even remove) the jurisdiction of those courts. This can be done through the same administrative rules and procedures by which court districts are routinely drawn or modified. This means streamlined committee handling and rapid implementation.

    Indeed, there is precedent for this.

    The “Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996,” signed into law by Monica Lewinsky’s old boyfriend, stripped jurisdiction to challenge certain actions of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) (the forerunner of today’s ICE) from federal courts.

    Congress can put an end to this unconstitutional and irresponsible judicial activism. Reassert the proper role of the courts, and do so before one of the once banned immigrants or refugees commit another act of criminality or terrorism.

  58. Chris says:

    Chinos are fucking gay.

    My op shop wardrobe is not fucking gay thank you. And YES there is something wrong with that, because I will not culturally appropriate gayness. Because it is, like, gay. I on the other hand am not.

  74. calli says:

    Pilling means seeing through the fabric.

    Pilling is when friction on a textile causes little balls to form on the textile surface. It’s really a type of felting which involves moisture and friction (erk) acting to weld the fibres together. It’s most likely in wool (because of little barbs on the fibres) but other fabrics can also be affected.

    So these womens’ thighs were rubbing together and causing the problem.

    Transparency happens when the knit is stretched so much that the gaps between the individual looped stitches become enlarged. In spandex type fabrics the stretching may be so severe that the fabric’s “memory” is lost and it becomes permanently distorted.

    Unattractive.

    A little history.

    Jeans are pants made from denim or dungaree cloth. They were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873 and a worn still but in a different context. Jeans are named after the city of Genoa in Italy, a place where cotton corduroy, called either jean or jeane, was manufactured.

    Overweight anthythings of any age look awful in tight jeans. What is your point?

    For the record, I have never owned, or worn, blue jeans. Thought they were rather common and conformist. When I was young and nubile, I owned white jeans, and cords, though. But they were not everyday wear. I mainly wore skirts and knee high boots.

    I can’t understand the lack of self-awareness that allows pudgy middle-aged males to wear blue jeans. They always remind me of Bill Clinton in his “mom jeans.” Even if they are not pudgy, they look like the old roadies who wear Rolling Stones T shirts and ponytails, because they think it makes them look kewl.

    The great thing about the blue jeans thing was that it avoided having to think about what to wear. The bad thing about the blue jeans thing was that it …

    US economy bogs down in first quarter with slowest growth in 3 years, GDP shows

    The U.S. economy expanded at the slowest pace in three years as weak auto sales and lower home-heating bills dragged down consumer spending, offsetting a pickup in investment led by housing and oil drilling.

    Females more reactively violent than males study finds.

    In her famous speech to English troops at Tilbury, Elizabeth I said: “I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart and stomach of a king.”

    She was not the only one. In fact when it comes to heart and stomach, not to mention an appetite for war, slaughter and mayhem, queens triumph over kings.

    A study has found that over the past 500 years, queens have been more likely to wage war than their male counterparts – and more likely to win new territory.

    It also discovered that, notwithstanding the peaceful inclinations of our own Queen Elizabeth II, who if she is going to start a career of invading and crushing Britain’s enemies may have left it a bit late, married queens are the most warlike of all.

    While they are less likely to lead their troops into battle – Boudicca may not be a terribly inspiring role model in that respect – they are more likely to wage war alongside allies.

    According to Oeindrila Dube and S P Harish, economists from the University of Chicago, between 1480 and 1913 Europe’s queens were 27 per cent more likely than its kings to wage war.

The ACT government wants to fine me for not voting when I no longer lived there. If I had voted, they would have fined me for that.

    Okay, we all know where this is heading after the first couple of sentences.

    How do you feel about our ­national anthem? Plenty of­ ­people feel that it’s a bit … well, shall we say lame?

    The music doesn’t soar, as do the French and the US anthems. As for the lyrics: who uses the word girt anymore?

    What then, if anything, should be done?

    Some people say nothing: it’s kind of wonderful Australia has an anthem that makes you ­mumble and kick the ground.

    Others, such as Queensland Liberal MP Andrew Laming, say we should do something about it.

    Mr Laming makes the point that Advance Australia Fair was written in 1878, “before Australia even existed as a country, so how could they reflect our values?”

    He wants references to our “informal style, sense of humour and ­larrikinism”.

    Victorian Supreme Court judge Peter Vickery has taken it upon himself to write a third verse, correcting what he sees as the worst anomaly: the absence of reference to indigenous ­Australians.

    “I am a judge but I also turn my hand to writing poetry in my spare time,” he told The Australian. “I have been conscious for some time of the disquiet among our indigenous citizens … and they clearly have a point.

    “Advance Australia Fair in its present form completely ignores our first peoples.”

    So while holidaying at his Snowy Mountains family retreat in September, he set to work.

    “It was a difficult task and ­occupied some six months of time, and numerous drafts,” he says. “I also set up an informal sounding board of eminent Australians to provide something of an informal review panel.”

    Justice Vickery called upon Richard Gill, conductor and­ ­musical director of the Sydney Chamber Choir, to advise on the musical pattern and scan. He produced a video version, sung by indigenous baritone, Don Bemrose.

    Some of the new lines include:

    One people of this ancient place

    We greet the new day’s light.

    Respecting Country let us sing,

    Advance Australia Fair.

    Advance Australia Fair was proclaimed the national anthem in 1984, following a 1977 plebiscite.

    Justice Vickery is now seeking assistance to have the third verse translated into traditional languages of the Wiradjuri, Pitjantjatjara and Meriam Mir (Torres Strait Islander) peoples.

    “What motivated me was the injustice and the hurt caused by the exclusion of our first Australians in the national anthem,” he says. “This has no place in contemporary Australia and needs to be put right.”

    Here’s the news, raisin testicles. I will never back down. Learn to live with it, pal.

    I don’t know why you bother with JC, Johanna. He be-clowned himself on this blog in rather a spectacular fashion,nearly two years ago, was had for breakfast by every ex – serviceman on this blog at the time, and has been thrashing round trying to recover his credibility ever since. Give it away, he’s just not worth it.

    Chinos are a very fine woven cotton, often has a slight sheen, and can be with a slight twill weave.

    Mens’ pants are often Chinos. I think it is a Mexican term, but as I am going to bed, I can’t be bothered checking, but youse have all night to get it right.

    Clothes maketh man, Zyconoclast.
    There is nothing more important.
    Especially important in human evolution.

  171. JC says:

    Take either the old option (the service revolver in the library) or the modern one (the necktie in the ladies toilet), you jerk.

    I bet you’ve thought of doing just that a few times, haven’t you sweetie.

    Without any foundation, you’ve called me a fat, drunken, whore and numerous other foul insults here over the years.

    I’ve never called you a whore, you dishonest porker. What I’ve called you is an attention whore, which is true because despite accusing others of this very thing, you do loads of it yourself. Self reflection never comes easy for you, does it? “You hot little number”

    Unlike our most special snowflake here, I have not run to Daddy (Sinclair) and have taken my knocks.

    Oh sure you have. You’ve threatened to sue me for mocking you with the very stories you’ve told about yourself. Recall the story about your horse riding issues? Umm… You’ve threatened to try and find my wife’s Facebook page and tell on me.. as though you would be a credible source about anything. You’ve made comments about the appearance of people you’ve met as just unwarranted attacks. No fucking wonder you’ll never score an invite with the people who live in Canberra…. Sweetness.

    Everyday it’s a breakdown for you.

    The so called knocks you’ve taken are when it gets a little hot for you and you run away for days licking those wounds on your very expansive body rolls.

    But, as one perceptive commenter has noted, you seem to imagine that you are some sort of Traditional Owner here, and have special rights.

    Oh yes, the perceptive commenter ..that spiv Mickie Goldcoast who encourages and eggs on the mentally disturbed. That “edacated” commenter.

    Here’s the news, raisin testicles. I will never back down. Learn to live with it, pal.

    I couldn’t imagine you ever backing down as you’re physically unable to. The comment also shows the quality of the female you are to be commenting about testicles. Such lady-like comments. Such femininity. Perhaps nasty, attention whoring, obese slapper comes more to mind than a h0t little number.

    And abusing kittehs, especially those who wore skirts and long boots in their heyday, is not going to end well for you. 🙂

    Yea, “the hot little number”. I could very well imagine.

    I guess Oliver isn’t around anymore.

    FWIW, I can recommend the new Christopher Bell title on “Churchill and the Dardanelles.” Good reading, check it out. Seems quite a few people thought the Gallipoli campaign would succeed,

    Zulu, I finished Alan Moorehead’s Gallipoli just last week, and have no doubt it would have succeeded. The navy was the key to it all and there were several points where just one more push would have succeeded. I’m sure you know all this so will spare you the details.

    In retrospect it seems cursed by the gods. Ian Hamilton was an amazing man.

    Who’s Ronery? Poor sad old JC, had for breakfast on this blog, on June 22nd, 2015, and trying to recover what ever credibility he may have had…Most amusing, JC, do keep it up..

    I don’t buy into that, but there are strong reasons to believe that the 3D and above universe is a projection of a 2D “ultimate” reality.

    Well if that theory is right JC, we’re proof of AI.

  180. Poor JC, whipped more often than a red-headed stepchild, and it is he who is doing the whipping!
    I think the word used for dudes like him is “massacre-ist” or something.

    But Johanna was being kind with the raisin testicles remark.
    In fact they both fit on a pin head.

  181. JC says:

    Ronery’s been talking about me being had for breakfast for the past two years, usually late at night, never on his own and always drunk.

    No life other than making ridiculous and inappropriate comments for years and years.

    Really sad.

  182. been talking about me being had for breakfast for the past two years

    We gotta stick to the facts, hence that story gets repeated oft.

    Works for me, you Thumtack dick.

  183. JC says:

    Well if that theory is right JC, we’re proof of AI.

    It’s an interesting theory. One theoretical physicist reckons that there’s proof of this because the past is impacted by the future and if this is case, as he thinks, it could only occur in simulation.

    Most amusing, JC, do keep it up. Is that the best you can do. No, didn’t think so. Badly unhinged and totally inadequate.

  186. JC says:

    Of course Pubbler is the reasoned, objective voice at the Cat. There’s no truth the rumor he’s hurt because he can’t pubble nor outback here anymore after it was smacked out of him. Just kidding.

    So to sum up, pubbler’s upset because of the above. Ronery reacts to being mocked because he has only variations of two topics he feels he’s competent to discuss here. The 1860’s east Congo uprising and not liking aboriginals.

    Good work ladies.

  187. JC says:

    Badly unhinged and totally inadequate.

    Sure Ronery, like getting drunk every night and bawling here about being cuckholded 30 years ago. You sad little sissy.

  188. JC says:

    Informal regular trousers.

    Earlier on, Fatso reckoned that only men below 40 should wear jeans. She later admitted to copying Stevie Nicks’ attire in her youth when she was a “hot little number”.

    The U.S. economy expanded at the slowest pace in three years as weak auto sales and lower home-heating bills dragged down consumer spending, offsetting a pickup in investment led by housing and oil drilling.

    Hmm, but Trump said it was going to three if his tax cuts get passed. Yeah nah.

    I see the Obamacare repeal effort failed yet again. 100 days are up tomorrow. What a SCOAMF.

  190. JC says:

    Hmm, but Trump said it was going to three if his tax cuts get passed. Yeah nah.

    Wow, so you believe he was going to over 3% in his first 3 months of office. No wonder you failed first year economics.

    I see the Obamacare repeal effort failed yet again. 100 days are up tomorrow. What a SCOAMF.

    It’s repeal and replace, but no matter it will get done.

  191. m0nty says:

    If it gets done, JC, the GOP will lose the House in 2018. It is poison for Congressmen.

    It won’t get done. Moderate Republicans aren’t that stupid. And if they are, they will disappear.

    Ms Doolittle gushed over the expensive bottle of wine you brought along, was all “I could never afford such a thing” about it.

    Go, Melbourne Cats!

  193. JC says:

    I dunno Fatso, you seem to think that whatever you’re trying to say about a bottle of wine is supposed have meaning. Deep meaning.

    I bought that wine from a wine dealer who posts at the Cat and trades in expensive imported wines. Trust me, you’d never be able to afford it, which I guess gets to you. Keep wearing the green dress, it looks perfect on you, you angry drunken slug.

  194. johanna says:

    BTW, since JC will never see forty again, the wearing of blue jeans by painfully inadequate males pretending to be hip and fooling no-one is relevant here.

    It’s like Jacquie Lambie wearing tassels and a G-string, boys.

    Give it away and get a decent tailor, or a mirror in the shop where you buy your strides.

    You’re seriously one weird old chook. All men my age wear jeans, but you wouldn’t know because you live alone and have no experience with men, or haven’t for a very long time.

    Give it away and get a decent tailor, or a mirror in the shop where you buy your strides.

    You’re a personal shopping adviser now Johanna… all the way from Bergdorf Goodman, Queanbeyan?

    I’m in trackies and ugg boots as I type this.
    Height of fashion.
    No problem going to Coles or Bunnings in them.
    Boganville is a state of mind.

    Ditto.
    Have two pairs of uggs – one for Outside, and the newer ones for Inside Formal.
    Plus a T Shirt and Flannelette Western shirt to complete the ensemble.

    Presumably, a bit of a jibe.
    Most tradies over 40 wouldn’t resemble Steve McQueen, they’re probably fatter than shiny arses, but you must meet ‘active’ blokes who work in the field who haven’t gone to seed?
