    Apparently Mr Daniels is seeking a divorce, citing adultery, would you believe?

    Either a terrible error in timing, or he knows that publication of the technical details of Mizz Stormy’s romp with Trump isn’t going to generate as much interest as widely hoped.

    I read that dickheads like Comey and McCabe lost theirs when they were fired.

    No they still have them. It’s a sort of retirement plan for spooks: so that after downing their bugs they can schmooze with their former colleagues and write opeds for WaPo.

    Ishmael Jones: A modest proposal (Powerline, yesterday)

    Nearly all intelligence officials who are fired, retired, pushed out, or resign from the intelligence agencies keep their security clearances. I do not know the specifics of any individual’s clearances but it is nearly certain that opponents of the current administration such as John Brennan, an aggressive Trump critic; James Clapper, who warns that Trump causes an “internal assault on our institutions”; Michael Morell, author of “I Ran the CIA. Now I’m Endorsing Hillary Clinton”; and recently fired leaker James Comey retain top-level security clearances.

    Security clearances are a deep state guild or union card allowing the holders to swan about intelligence facilities, chatting, gossiping, and gathering intelligence that they can leak to journalists.

    This is an ex-CIA guy who is writing this.

    I dunno, but I read that dickheads like Comey and McCabe lost theirs when they were fired. It’s a little unclear.

    Could be dismissal vs retirement.
    But why would they even report that Comey and McCabe had lost theirs?
    I mean, that implies that handing in your clearance along with your gun and badge isn’t the norm.
    Scratch this one hard enough you will find that well known x-dresser Hoover had something to do with it and the precedent continued on.

    The revised forecast means that as of right now, Venezuela’s hyperinflation has officially surpassed the Weimar Republic’s, where the highest recorded monthly inflation was a timid 29,500% (resulting in prices doubling ever 3.7 days).

    At least 3.7 days gives the shopper a chance to change the batteries in the calculator. I read, that in Zimbabwe at the height of Mugabe’s malfeasance, price of commodities went up in the time between the time of entry to and exit from the premises.

    Steve Bannon ‘planning foundation’ to boost far right in Europe

    The ex-head of right-wing website Breitbart News told the Daily Beast on Friday that his organisation, called The Movement, will be a central source of polling, advice on messaging, data targeting and think-tank research for various nationalist parties in Europe.

    “Right-wing populist nationalism is what will happen. That’s what will govern,” he said. “You’re going to have individual nation states with their own identities, their own borders.”

    It also leaves open many lucrative positions, outside of government (defence contractors, think tanks, etc), which require high level security clearances.

    Latinos aren’t reaching top military positions, study shows

    Hispanics have failed to reach top leadership positions in the military even as Latino participation in the armed forces overall has remained on par with the group’s demographic growth, a study shows.

    The study by Casaba Group, a Hispanic veterans organization, showed that between 1995 and 2016, only one Latino had become a three-star general, even as the number of active-duty Hispanic officers more than doubled, from 6,117 to 15,033, during that period

    Out of 45 civilians with the top Defense Department pay grade, only one is Hispanic, according to the study.

    Dead bodies, wild dogs, squatters in government-owned Detroit houses

    At one end of Alpine Street, near Joy Road on Detroit’s west side, Georgeia Elder and a friend live in a leaky trailer, their yard cluttered with a boat and a Cadillac Escalade with four ladders on the roof, a shopping cart and a lawn mower, a folding chair and a metal headboard. A pit bull, Lady, laps up spaghetti and gravy from a takeout container.

    At the other end of this short stretch of Alpine, near Tireman Avenue, a woman known as Spankie lives in a house with a dog she calls “my baby.” A heart-shaped sign hangs from the front door that says “Bless Our Home.” A handwritten sign instructs the postal carrier to put her mail in a box tucked into a milk crate next to the porch stairs. A scent of straw and animals hangs in the air.

    These occupants don’t own the properties where they live. They’re not paying rent to the owner either. Their homes on Alpine Street, a Free Press analysis shows, bookend one of the City of Detroit’s highest concentrations of squatters, people who live in homes owned by the Detroit Land Bank Authority.

    There are as many as 4,300 houses just like these across the city.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer is getting a reboot with a black woman in the lead role

    It’s been 21 years since Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer first arrived on the scene with its seminal mix of urban fantasy, teen angst, and clever worldbuilding and wordplay. Now, Whedon has announced that he will revive his beloved series for a new generation of Slayers — with one major twist.

    Working with 20th Century Fox TV through its cable and streaming development arm, Fox 21 TV Studios, Whedon will produce an “inclusive” reboot of Buffy starring a black woman in the iconic title role originally played by Sarah Michelle Gellar.

    Having a clearance and having access are different things, JC.
    You’ve got to be in a position to obtain current information regardless of clearance. It doesn’t automatically give you access to government facilities or computer systems.

    “Taking 17 million tonnes of CO2 out of agriculture – I don’t know how we’re going to do that”.

    I hate the msm. Agriculture is at worse CO2 neutral, more likely a sink because established low CO2 absorbing plants are replaced with quick growing CO2 gobbling crops. These fools with their insulated highly technological lifestyles will lose verything if they have their way about alarmism and renewables.

    ‘Does a security clearance mean these former employees can obtain state secrets at their clearance level or does it mean something else.’

    In the US it means that the holders can only access information on a need to know basis as determined by the agency with regard to Executive Order 13526 [2009]. If the agency determines they do not have a need to know they don’t get it.

    The UK government has sparked a human rights row after the Home Secretary agreed to extradite two British jihadis to the US without seeking assurance they wouldn’t face the death penalty.

    It’s just a mystery why the UK wouldn’t want to try British jihadis who tortured and murdered a range of nationalities and instead turns them over to the US for trial. Not.

    Of course the death penalty being on offer in the US is why they did it, along with not wanting to deal with the shite storm from their muslim population.

    Go on, get the yanks to do your dirty work ya freaking lame hypocrites. Then you can cut the press releases blaming them for being the harsh, inhumane, racist bastards we know you want to.

    Taking 17 million tonnes of carbon out of Australian agriculture is easier once Canberra has central planning control over the murray river, the darling river and the snowy river.

    Central planning control of agriculture has proven an effective weight loss program for the proles everywhere it has been tried.

    Maybe turnbull will get communal farming right this time.

    Maybe their turnbullites will grasp central planning control over australias three main irrigation rivers in time to hand that control to the radical freedom fighting revolutionaries of ecofeminist veganism.

    Quebec launching s3x-ed program for daycares

    S3x ed is coming to daycares in Quebec under a pilot program for children less than five years old – and some of the province’s Catholic parents are sounding the alarm.

    “They want to have a program to start as early as they can for the propaganda and brainwashing,” said Gina Petrozza, member of the Catholic Parents Association of Quebec.

    The s3x ed program for daycares, which is being managed by the Marie-Vincent Foundation, is to be launched this autumn in the Montreal area and involve roughly 1,200 children.

    Véronique Sansregret, that foundations’ director of philanthropic development, said the program will offer education on s3xuality and equality between boys and girls.

    “The content of the program will foster the ability to protect oneself,” said Sanregret in French. “There is no s3xuality as such.”

    The specific content of the s3x ed program, however, is still being kept under wraps.

    There are reportedly two books for three to five-year-olds that explore the idea of equality between boys and girls and the need to respect everyone’s personal space.

    There is also reportedly another book for children two-years-old and younger that delivers the message that both boys and girls can get scared, cry or play any games they want.

    The safety part of the program involves teaching children that no-one, no adult, has the right to touch a child’s private parts and say it’s just a game.

    “It seems innocuous but, because we have a reform here, the teacher can come in and take it further,” said Petrozza. “This is a loose kind of structure that the government provides and they can then make it whatever they want.”

    Young children in Quebec’s elementary schools are already being indoctrinated to gender theory and told that all families, including same-s3x families, are the same, said Petrozza.

    Instruction on reproduction, which places all the emphasis on the mechanics of the sperm fertilizing ovum, already strips away the emotional human aspects of having children and robs students in Quebec classrooms, she said.

    “They don’t talk about love,” said Petrozza. “It’s cold.”

    In Ontario, Premier Doug Ford has pledged to repeal the former government’s s3x ed curriculum, much to the dismay of LGBTQ activists and the pleasure of traditional parents.

    In Quebec, though, pro-family groups are finding it to be an uphill battle to galvanize public support for their cause.

    “We live in a crazy world where parents need to have two incomes and need to put children in daycares and we’re getting a bit too comfortable with the state taking care of our children,” said Petrozza.

    With the provincial government opening the door to s3x ed in daycares, she said parents need to realize the real goal of these programs is to indoctrinate children into a state-approved morality.

    It is the parents’ job to teach their own children about morality and values and not the state, she said.

    “Parents need to wake up and become the first educators of their children,” said Petrozza. “Stop giving a blank cheque to the government when it comes to the LGBT-driven agenda … and such delicate things as s3xual education and values and morals.”

    Embattled Labor MP Emma Husar will take personal leave amid damaging allegations she has mistreated her staff.

    Ms Husar, who represents the NSW electorate of Lindsay, said the days since the allegations and the investigation into the claims were revealed had been “incredibly difficult” for her family and resulted in death threats.

    “I’m a single mum and my first priority is the safety and wellbeing of my children,” she said in a statement.

    “I have received threatening messages including threats of violence and have referred them to the Australian Federal Police.”

    “The best thing for me and my family right now is for us to be out of the spotlight so I can access support.”

    Makka, you are confusing clearance with access.

    She can have a Top Secret SCI clearance, but if she don’t have access she is waiting outside while the big kids get their briefs.

    Also, the higher you get into the classified realm the more compartmentalized the information is so having some sort of carte blanche “I can look at anything” just isn’t so. You may be able to see the file on X but you won’t even know for sure that a file on Y exists because you have no access.

    That is assuming that people are enforcing the rules. I can’t speak to what someone may be illegally allowing her to see and we know she is a flagrant violator of the information security regs. But officially she gets to see what the current govt wants to let her see.

    JC,
    It means they/he/she can be employed in a role/job that requires that level of security clearance. If employed in that role, they/he/she can access the classified information that is required for that role/job.

    Think of an unemployed Daycare worker who has successfully undergone a ‘Working With Children’ check. They have been cleared by the authorities to have access to kids, but that doesn’t mean they can just roll up to any Daycare Centre and start playing with the kids.

    They have to be employed in a role which grants them a log on and a security pass and even then, most information is compartmentalised (accessible only by people who have a need to see it).

    Why everyone on Facebook is now at risk

    Caleb Bond The Daily Telegraph July 23, 2018

    MORE than 15 million Australians log on to Facebook every month. That’s about 60 per cent of us. It is far and away the most popular social-media service in the country. And, thanks to a recent court case, it also just happened to turn into potentially the most costly.

    Serial political candidate Mark Aldridge was last month ordered to pay $100,000 in damages to a gentleman he was ruled to have defamed on Facebook. But Judge Peter Brebner also found that Aldridge was liable for remarks he had not personally made — the comments of other Facebook friends and followers — and would have to pay damages for them, too.

    Aldridge has now lodged an appeal.

    Everything I’m reading refers to ACCESS. No confusion. Also, I’m referring to her access specifically to 5 Eyes intel.

    “The former NSA contractor Edward Snowden described the Five Eyes as a “supra-national intelligence organisation that does not answer to the known laws of its own countries”.[6] Documents leaked by Snowden in 2013 revealed that the FVEY have been spying on one another’s citizens and sharing the collected information with each other in order to circumvent restrictive domestic regulations on surveillance of citizens.[7][8][9][10]

    In spite of continued controversy over its methods, the Five Eyes relationship remains one of the most comprehensive known espionage alliances in history.[11]

    Depending on the outcome of the current State Department inquiry, Clinton and her aides could have their access to sensitive government documents terminated.

    NDIS with make the Day Care scam look like child’s play.

    Announcing the 100-member flying squad on Tuesday, Social Services Minister Dan Tehan said: “We are putting criminals on notice. You come after the NDIS and we will come after you”.

    The tough talking Tehan, as if to amplify the odium of such a crime, said anybody who defrauded the NDIS was “taking money from Australians with a disability”.

    “The NDIS will only succeed with the support of the Australian people who fund it, and the NDIS fraud taskforce will help give people confidence their money is well spent,” Tehan said.

    The government spent $8 billion on the NDIS last year and this figure would grow to $22 billion per annum by 2022.

    Tehan told reporters in Canberra the taskforce, aided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), would prevent organised crime from infiltrating the scheme.

    “We do not want that money going, in particular, to organised criminals who will seek to exploit, sadly, any system that the government puts in place,” he said.

    Though standing alongside Tehan at the announcement, AFP Deputy Commissioner Neil Gaughan said NDIS fraud had thus far been “minimal”.

    However, Gaughan said: “We will put in place our full powers and our full capabilities to bring those responsible for the criminality to justice”.

    As well as the AFP, the NDIS fraud taskforce would involve the Department of Human Services and the National Disability Insurance Agency.

    Human Services Minister Michael Keenan issued a statement to say his department had extensive experience in fraud detection and prevention and would help ensure the NDIS supported people fairly.

    “There is always a minority who will seek to exploit the system and we must remain vigilant to ensure the NDIS remains viable and that taxpayer funds are only supporting those who genuinely need it,” he said.

How many times should Dastarayi have done the decent thing, yet had to be prised out of his comfy red seat like a limpet clinging to its rock? And Dastayari is one of her most loyal supporters in this, so what advice might she be getting, one wonders.

    It sounds to this cynical old dame, who’s seen a lot of pollies come and go, that this little Duckie was living it up, having the career plus the kids, the single-man status, the status of being an MP, the benefits, the allowances, being feted by her labor “colleagues”, having staff at her beck and call, all paid for by the tax-payer – yet she never thought she might be caught out, never thought that those she was allegedly hanging sh*t on and abusing might not be “cool” with all of that.

    Any “employer” who demanded I walk their dog and pick up its sh*t, that I do the dishes to “check my male privilege” (OK, I’m not male, but I’d never do it to any man anyhow), or who called me a “c**t” or a “f***wit”, would get very short shrift indeed, and would know all about my displeasure and the unacceptability of their actions. That this little bint thinks she’s something special and has the right to put sh*t on others just tells us the measure of ALP candidates, and what they think of the rest of us – and how they’d like to treat us all too, for that matter.

    ‘Dutton should ban Noah from entering the country’

    This should be a teaching moment for Noah, unaware as he must be of the timeline of humour between the US, S.Africa and Australia. repost

    The ‘tall tale’ genre was taken from the US to S.Africa and developed into ‘kloof yarns’ then taken to the WA Goldfields influencing the melting pot of prospectors and probably H.Lawson. Patterson too spent time in S.Africa and would have obtained copies. Kloof yarns were often racist, the Jacky Jacky joke genre is a descendent. The yarns of Noongar exponent Skinny Ugle represent the indigenising of the genre.

    Some Skinny Ugle yarns –

    Skinny was in the Air Force flying a bomber, the bombs were going everywhere so he hid behind a cloud and waited till they stopped fighting

    Skinny Ugle ran that fast around a tree he tapped him self on the back

    Skinny went hunting for a yongka an only had 1 bullet …. he come back with 2 yongka. He told them’ I lined up the 2 yongka evenly & I shot the rock in the middle. The bullet split in half an shot both’

    Skinny had a fight one day & he said ‘ I never hit a man when he down’ so he lay down on the ground and fought him

    Skinny was riding the bike back to Narrogin. He rode that fast around the corner the back wheel was in front of him ..

    Skinny said that he was playing footy in Cuballing and they were one goal and one point behind and when he kicked the ball the leather went through the goal and the bladder went through the point and they won by one point and one goal

    Skinny was playing footy in Williams. He took a screamer – he was that high he seen em playing two up in Narrogin

    Skinny was down south setting rabbit traps, he said there was so many rabbits he had to push them out of the way the way to set the traps …

    Uncle Abe’s Big Shoot

    ‘When I pulled the trigger the fish leapt from the water on the line and the bullet passed through him inter the buck. I tole you the gun kicked. Well it flew out of my hands an’ hit the hare square on the nose…’

    Kloof Yarns. Glanville 1896

    Glanville’s Kloof Yarns were popular in the WA Goldfields. Copies were obtained from prospectors who’d been to South Africa and later from Boer War veterans. They were widely read all over the State. Some Kloof yarns were reprinted by literary minded newspaper Goldfields editors like Everard Manhattan.

    Mater’s take is spot on.
    In the Australian context, let’s say Brennan retired as head of ASIO and got a job as a marketing consultant with Acme Landmines. He would be able to get a clearance to access documents and materials related to the dealings of Acme with Defence but he would not be able to access ASIO material related to, say, Chinese spying activity.

The deceased was a native of Tipperary, Ireland, and came when a boy with his father to Melbourne. Soon afterwards he went to New Zealand. He was educated first in Nelson, and he then proceeded to England to finish his studies. He then travelled to various parts of the world, and previous to coming to West Australia he conducted a paper at Charters Towers, Queensland. The deceased arrived in this colony two years ago when he became editor of the Broad Arrow Standard. About 15 months since he joined the Coolgardie Miner as sub.editor, afterwards becoming editor.

    it has now been proven that the FBI obtained a FISA warrant in 2016 to spy on the disfavored presidential campaign, basing the application on nothing more than unverified opposition research from the favored campaign and false statements to the FISA court made under penalty of perjury. CNN could not have been less interested.

    In other words, the entire basis for the so-called ‘Russian Collusion’ investigation was a lie. But you knew that.

  149. Zatara

    Funny how a bunch of those paragraphs in the original FISA documents were marked ‘Unclassified’ at the time but now the FBI figure they have to be redacted.

    The FBI will have to come up with a new classification marking for ‘unflattering’, ‘contradicts our new story’, or ‘tends to illustrate that we are incompetent liars in the tank for the Democrats’.

    Nearly all intelligence officials who are fired, retired, pushed out, or resign from the intelligence agencies keep their security clearances. I do not know the specifics of any individual’s clearances but it is nearly certain that opponents of the current administration such as John Brennan, an aggressive Trump critic; James Clapper, who warns that Trump causes an “internal assault on our institutions”; Michael Morell, author of “I Ran the CIA. Now I’m Endorsing Hillary Clinton”; and recently fired leaker James Comey retain top-level security clearances.

    Tariffs are the greatest!

    Tariffs are the greatest! Either a country which has treated the United States unfairly on Trade negotiates a fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs. It’s as simple as that – and everybody’s talking! Remember, we are the “piggy bank” that’s being robbed. All will be Great!

    If you manage to find yourself in multiple relationships where you’re having to survive ‘domestic violence’, you definitely shouldn’t be in parliament making laws to rule other peoples lives.

    Because you’re basically retardedly naive, a dreadful judge of character or a thrill seeker.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Either that or you are an inveterate liar and show pony who accuses partners of DV to get a better divorce settlement, the kids plus sympathy because you are a sociopath.

    Apologies if someone posted this earlier. The two Aussie cave divers awarded Star of Courage (that was quick; Turnbull trying to get brownie points before super Saturday?). Anyway this is well deserved and I can really understand why these guys are a bit ’embarrassed’ by the kerfuffle. Huge team effort. Plus just listening to them at the presser you realise just how much pressure was on them and just how risky the whole plan was – as Dr Harris said – to sedate skinny, dehydrated Thai boys at back of a cave. Basically Dr Harris didn’t know whether he was going to kill them (and then, thanks to UK divers especially, whether they could carry them through nil visibility at times and hope you don’t knock their full face mask off and drown them). Bravo, good men. And remember during the same week Turnbull said yes to Leyonjhelm’s bribe to open the door wider to euthanasia.

    Working on a new joke for Trevor Noah. Let me know what you think before I send it to him – An Australian white woman ends up in hospital with a bullet wound to her left knee. After surgery the Dr asked her how it had happened. She explains that she was suicidal and wished to shoot herself in the heart but didn’t know where the heart was. She was told it was just below the left nipple and that’s how she came to shoot herself in the left knee.

    LONDONISTAN: POLICE HINT ACID ATTACK ON TODDLER LINKED TO ‘COMMUNITY DISPUTE’

    Speaking at police HQ in Worcester this afternoon, Chief Superintendent Mark Travis hinted the attack’s motive may have been a result of a “dispute in communities”.
    […]When asked about acid attacks in the UK, he added: “As a local policing commander in support of our local community I want to make sure the message is really clear that this is a very, very rare occurrence and what we will do is work to make people understand that this is not the way to resolve issues and disputes in communities.”

    The Chief Superintendent would like to say that people from shithole countries are bringing their shithole ways with them.

    Federal member for Lindsay Emma Husar has taken personal leave as problems with staff and family continue to mount.

    The multi-layered Israeli missile defence system is freaking amazing. Everyone hears about Iron Dome, which is pretty awesome on its own. But it shoots down fairly rudimentary ordnance like artillery fire and the shitty backyard rockets Hamas and the Iranians cook up on the cheap – which is no small feat in and of itself. Personally, I don’t know why South Korea hasn’t blanketed itself in Iron Dome batteries to ameliorate NK’s great threat that it could destroy Seoul with its thousand-salvo arty barrage.

    Then there’s another layer that deals with cruise missiles and the like. (If I were a Grigs-type loser I’d hit Wiki up to pretend as though I know everything, even though I’m not fooling anyone.)

    Then there’s David’s Sling, which deals with (I believe) longer range ballistic missiles with heavier payloads.

    Then there’s the final missile defence shield which deals with ICBMs and the like. Ballistic missiles that exit and re-enter the atmosphere in their flight trajectory.

    Israel kicks arse.

    True. And with real time counterbattery fire, Iran’s numerous but imprecise arsenal won’t be hard to neutralise. Closing the straits won’t be done with ordnance but with physical barriers that prevent passage, such as scuttled vessels. Clearing these barriers expeditiously is the main game.

    Seriously. Israel stole a literal half-tonne of top secret Iranian nuclear weapons documents and spirited these from Tehran to Jerusalem.

    NEWMAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

    [Diary of a Pommy who cracked a Job in WA]

    August 31

    Just got transferred with work from grey old London to our new home in

    Newman, Western Australia.

    Now this is a town that knows how to live!

    Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings.

    I watched the sunset from a deckchair by the pool yesterday. It was

    beautiful. I’ve finally found my new home. I love it here.

    ——————————————————————————–

    September 13

    Really heating up now. It got to 31 today. No problem though. Living in air-conditioned home, driving air-conditioned car.  What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this.

    I’m turning into a sun-worshipper.

    ——————————————————————————–

    September 30th

    Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for me.  Another scorcher today, but I love it here.

    ——————————————————————————–

    October 10th

    The temperature hasn’t been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat?  At least today it’s windy though. Keeps the flies off a bit. Acclimatising is taking longer than I expected.

    ——————————————————————————–

    October 15th

    Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed three days of work. What a dumb thing to do!  Got to respect the ol’ sun in a climate like this.

    ——————————————————————————–

    October 20th

    Didn’t notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car before I left for work this morning.

    By the time I got back to the car after work, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stuck to the upholstery.  The car now smells like Whiskettes and cat shit. I’ve learned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat.

    ——————————————————————————–

    October 25

    This wind is a b*stard. It feels like a giant f*ckin’ blow dryer.  And it’s hot as hell!

    The home air conditioner is on the blink and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to order parts from f*ckin’ Perth .

    ——————————————————————————–

    October 30th

    The temperature’s up around 40 and the parts still haven’t arrived for the f*ckin’ aircon.

    Been sleeping outside by the pool for three nights now. Bloody $900,000 house and we can’t even go inside.  Why the hell did I ever come here?

    ——————————————————————————–

    November 4

    Finally got the ol’ aircon fixed. It cost $1 500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 30.

    Stupid repairman.

    ——————————————————————————–

    November 8

    If one more smart a*se says ‘Hot enough for you today?’, I’m going to f*ckin’ throttle him! F*ckin’ heat!  By the time I get to work, the car’s radiator is in the red, my clothes are soaking f*ckin’ wet and I smell like baked cat!

    ——————————————————————————–

    November 9

    Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in the ol’ car.  I thought my f*ckin’ arse was on fire. I lost two layers of flesh, all the hair on the backs of my legs and my f*ckin’ arse.  Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried a*se and baked cat!

    ——————————————————————————–

    November 10

    Weather report! It might as well be a f*ckin’ recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny, Hot and f*ckin’ sunny!  It’s been too hot to do anything for two f*ckin’ months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week.  Doesn’t it ever rain in this damn f*ckin’ place? Water restrictions are next, so my $5 000 worth of palms might just dry up and blow into the f*ckin’ pool.  The only things that thrive in this hellhole are the f*ckin’ flies. You don’t dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of the

    f*ckers!

    ——————————————————————————–

    November 20th

    Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 f*ckin’ degrees today.  Now the air- conditioner’s gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it and said, ‘Hot enough for you today?’  My wife had to spend the $3 500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid f*cker.

    F*ckin’ Newman! What kind of sick, demented f*ckin’ idiot would want to live here!

    The US has mine sweepers etc that could clean it up.

    I don’t think it would be minesweepers, as the Iranians know laying mines will be a very temporary hindrance. To get the biggest bang for their buck, they would want to sink large objects in random places along key shipping lanes. Iranian special forces might commandeer a few oil tankers and scuttle them, for instance. The US and its coalition will need to be able to neutralise the Iranian threat AND clear the shipping lanes quickly.
