    (Reuters) – Facebook Inc (FB.O) said on Monday it is in talks to deepen links with banks and financial institutions, saying it can help the firms improve their customer service.

    The Wall Street Journal had reported here that Facebook had asked banks to share detailed financial information about their customers, including card transactions and checking-account balances.

    We are probably not far off the day when being told by Spacechook that ‘your account has been suspended for being a Deplorable’ will see your finances suspended too.

    Pretty sure once the Chinese link their Social Credit system to the ubiquitous Chinese Alipay and Wechat Pay any hint of dissent will soon disappear for fear of locked bank accounts and starvation.

    The Zuke seems to be positioning to replicate the same facilities that the ChiComs have rolled out.

    Asked to respond to Textor’s criticism, FitzSimons, 57, from the battler-free Sydney suburb of Cremorne, replied: “Whatev.”

    Pirate Pete is in Cremorne?

    Crap! I live in Mosman!

    I could end up being arrested for leaping off a bus while in motion, crossing the street, accidentally bumping into him and sending him through a plate glass window in a latte shop and in front of oncoming traffic – all because that comically portentous chose to move to a suburb before I got there.

    And then I would be the one in prison.

    Is there anything Lefties won’t do to cause problems for we normal folk?

    Phillip Adams reports they’ve had to escort the last of their cattle off their 10,000 acre Hunter Valley property. It had run cattle commercially for 100 years but no longer because of the effects of climate change.

    This just about sums up the left and alarmism. What really happened is fhatty ate all his cattle; the remainder of his 10000 acres is being left to nature and phatty has developed a taste for human flesh which is so gigantic and insistent no one will escape his flashing incisors.

    Someone needs to tweet Aust. banks whether they are in talks with FB.

    Here is part of the WSJ article on FB

    The social-media giant has asked large U.S. banks to share detailed financial information about their customers, including card transactions and checking-account balances, as part of an effort to offer new services to users.

    Facebook increasingly wants to be a platform where people buy and sell goods and services, besides connecting with friends. The company over the past year asked JPMorgan Chase JPM 0.03% & Co., Wells Fargo WFC 0.10% & Co., Citigroup Inc. C 0.01% and U.S. Bancorp USB 0.04% to discuss potential offerings it could host for bank customers on Facebook Messenger, said people familiar with the matter.

    Facebook has talked about a feature that would show its users their checking-account balances, the people said. It has also pitched fraud alerts, some of the people said.

    Data privacy is a sticking point in the banks’ conversations with Facebook, according to people familiar with the matter. The talks are taking place as Facebook faces several investigations over its ties to political analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, which accessed data on as many as 87 million Facebook users without their consent.

    One large U.S. bank pulled away from talks due to privacy concerns, some of the people said.

    So Adams has escorted his cattle off the far, err, property because of no feed. And it’s caused by climate change?

    Strange. I have a small farm down north of Mexico, and while it’s a tad dry, the two mobs of kangaroos, squadron of Rosellas, ma and pa plover, wayne and wussie wallaby all seem happy. Plenty grass and water.

    Perhaps PA is agisting them? Or are they being sent to the, you know, thinks of PC term for the abattoir, wagyu beef fabrication center, since PA needs the dosh.

    “Pitt Street farmers”, like Phillip Adams, are a pimple on the ar$ehole of agriculture. They are responsible for one of the most farcical situations, ever created involving taxation law. If you have a farm, and off farm income, you fall under the section of the Taxation Act designed to catch those “Pitt Street farmers” who brought a hobby farm, as a tax write off. If your farm makes a loss, you pay tax on the off farm income, while carrying the loss forward to a year, to be offset when you make a profit. Only by answering a long series of incredibly dumb questions from the Taxation Department, aimed at proving you aren’t a hobby farmer, can you convince the Commissioner to “exercise his discretion” and allow you to offset the loss against your off farm income.

    “Pitt Street farmers” should be sodomized by a giraffe, before being beaten to death, with a Thermomix.

    Here’s Phatty’s squeeze: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrice_Newell

    In December 2006, she announced that she would be running for a seat on the New South Wales Legislative Council in the March 2007 New South Wales State election as an independent candidate endorsed by the Climate Change Coalition. Her policy platform was to put pressure on the Government to acknowledge that climate change is “the greatest crisis in human history” and that it should be recognised and taken into account in all Government policy.[1] She did not win a seat.

    Hey Phatty – did you declare any conflict of interest when discussing the crisis? No?

    Phillip Adams has always scared me. When I was a young (and stupid) party operative of a Victorian branch I sent him an email about how evil Murdoch was and why did he work for him yadda yadda insert alp line here about me being a young operative yadda yadda.

    He rang me almost instantaneously and told me Murdoch has never told him what to write or not to write at The Oz. He then asked me, strangely, if I’d like to “catch up in a bar with him for a chat.”

    I’d never met anyone who used the term “bar” so I promptly declined. I’m not saying anything untoward about it; just that its a strange thing to ask a young stranger to do. That’s all.

    Cows mown down in ‘drought relief centre rampage’
    Derrick Krusche, The Daily Telegraph
    20 minutes ago
    Subscriber only

    A NSW farmer says he is devastated after his cattle were mown down when he confronted a woman who had allegedly broken into a drought relief centre set up on his farm.

    Chris Haycock arrived home at his property in Yeoval near Dubbo — used by charity Aussie Helpers to store hay for needy farmers — before allegedly finding Krystal Simmonds trespassing in a Ford Falcon.

    Simmonds was arrested and taken to Dubbo police station, where she was charged with serious offences including predatory driving and assaulting an officer in execution of duty.

    She was refused bail and will appear in court later this month.

    Mr Haycock said his farm was set up as a drought relief centre, where farmers doing it tough can pick up hay and other supplies.

    “We’re very shocked, it’s hard enough here with the drought,” he said.

    “There’s thousands worth of damage to fencing.

    “I don’t know how the cows will go now after this.”

    The drought problem isn’t the drought.

    It’s gouging council rates, environmental restrictions where you’ll be gaoled if you clear scrub, rain which falls on your farm that isn’t yours, lack of infrastructure like electricity that your taxes and rates were supposed to pay for, inability to export farm animals because of the ABC and fires and ferals coming across the boundary from the unmanaged government parks.

    Without all that there’d be no drought, at least not of the financial sort.

    Esther Deans* had a best seller here on biodynamic farming (in the backyard, I hasten to add) many years ago. A lot of her methods made perfect sense to me, as they were geared to increasing the biological activity in the soil.

    I moved onto a sand block four years ago, mined out, smoothed over and dead as a post. It’s now black, rich, fertile soil and going hammer and tongs. That’s 1700 m2. How you could possibly achieve the same commercially is beyond me.

    UPDATE: VICTORIA’S emergency management commissioner, Craig Lapsley, has resigned from his role.

    Yesterday, the Herald Sun exclusively revealed that Mr Lapsley was set to step down from the position ahead of this year’s bushfire season.

    It comes amid a WorkSafe investigation into allegations of bullying within the EMV, and will add to the long list of leaders in fire services to have stepped down or be sacked during the term of the Andrews Government.

    Phillip Adams reports they’ve had to escort the last of their cattle off their 10,000 acre Hunter Valley property. It had run cattle commercially for 100 years but no longer because of the effects of climate change.

    No one will escape.

    Its worth mentioning “plant cow horns of poo whilst circling withershins on a new moon” Adams was also the head of the Australian skeptics society.

    So a fierce critic of unscientific “woo” except his own.

    A proper skeptic, finding a strange phenomena would investigate for a hard science why instead the flogbag wrote an article about it.

    Also may I point out the irony of a person exhorting people to prepare for catastrophic climate change was somehow simultaneously unable to store away enough (steel cut) oats to keep his cows home.

    Adams listed what he described as his “quasi-family home” in April last year with a guide of $5.3 million to $5.8 million exclusively through Louisa Jackson, of Langulin, and was steadfast to that guide throughout the campaign.
    ….

    Mr Adams was more forthcoming, saying, “the secret buyer is Donald Trump. He’ll move in when Turnbull grants him political asylum to escape impeachment.”

    Justifying Australia’s population ponzi towards 3rd world status;

    “Faster population growth may help their bottom line, but it is the broader community that pays for much of the congestion and pressures on social cohesion.

    “Some senior business leaders have expressed concern that the only message that they say is heard internationally is that we are closed for migrants. We are absolutely closed for the people-smuggling business but we remain open to orderly skilled migration. These two things are not at odds; to the contrary, strong borders support skilled migration.”

    While not necessarily advocating a big Australia, Mr Tudge will say the economic benefits of immigration are obvious, with a recent report by Treasury and the Department of Home Affairs estimating the immigration program added 1 per cent to GDP a year, with modest increases to GDP per capita. “Of course, with a larger economy, there is more scope for investment in public goods, including national defence,” Mr Tudge will say.

    “It is much easier to pay for 12 submarines with a $1.5 trillion economy than one half the size.”

    However, he will say that some areas of the migration program are failing. The unemployment rate among the general skilled intake six months after arrival, accounting for between 40,000 and 50,000 of the overall numbers, has blown out from 12 per cent in a 2009 to 2011 study to 22 per cent.”

    “We are desperate for help and a safe future. We are appealing to you, to do anything you can to help us, and for the Canadian government to consider resettling us from Nauru.”

    This needs to translated.

    Such action entails stewardship of the entire Earth system. This is King Canut stuff, these clowns can’t even predict 3 days into the future; the success rate of the BoM prediction is less than 50% a coin toss

    Decarbonisation horse and carts; to meet the paris commitments; energy, cars and cows will have to be reduced by 28% of the 2005 levels. Dirt and lard diet here we come.

    enhancement of biosphere carbon sinks ; more trees, less crops and cows.

    behavioural changes ; use less electricity, eat less meat, sell your car; the RERT reliability and emergency reserve trader is already in place.

    technological innovations ; a lie; HELE, thorium, new gen nuclear and cold and hot fusion all ignored by fanatics in favour of old technology like wind and solar; photovoltaics have been known for 200 years. CS for 500 years. We had the age of wind, it was the 1700s.

    The 130 proposed changes include the requirement that every rental home has a functioning stove, heating and deadlocks, a crackdown on rental bidding, and a ban on increasing rent more than once a year.

    Bonds will be capped at four weeks’ rent and renters will have the right to make minor modifications to the home without consent, such as putting hooks on the walls.

    Under the laws, landlords could stop tenants from keeping a pet only by obtaining an order through the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

    Mao-comb taking a decisive action against a lunatic public servant.

    Lloyd will be replaced by Peter Woolcott, a career public servant and diplomat who is now Malcolm Turnbull’s chief of staff.

    After all we cant have a chap doing this sort of thing.

    Lloyd – who is still under investigation for an alleged code of conduct breach for his dealings with the Institute of Public Affairs – said he had “copped criticism” in his role and complained that he had found the investigation process “most unsatisfactory”.

    In a speech to the Institute of Public Administration Australia in Canberra, Lloyd made light of the controversy. Labor’s Penny Wong has spearheaded questioning about whether Lloyd gave preferential treatment to the IPA – a rightwing thinktank – which he used to lead.

    We are deluged at every turn by do-gooders telling us what we should eat and drink, how we should exercise, how we should think, how we should spend our money, what type of dwelling we should live in,” he said. “It seems every day is a world day for either genuine or mindless causes for good. Virtue signalling is rampant in some quarters.”

    Lloyd said there was a danger that good policy advice was being “stifled by pervasive groupthink dictated by what is politically correct”.

    “The Canberra setting can be particularly vulnerable to this.”

    Lloyd – who presided over the public service commission as it put in place restrictive social media practices warning public servants not to like or share anti-government posts – suggested leaders should “stand up and question the prevailing orthodoxy”.

    Lloyd argued the “too regulated and inflexible” workplace relations system needed to be deregulated and warned unions were seeking “more and deep regulation” that would damage employment prospects.

    Lloyd, who was appointed as the first Australian Building and Construction Commissioner in 2005, warned it would be a “seriously retrograde step to abolish” the building industry regulator, as Labor has promised to do.

    He said his stint at the ABCC had shown the construction industry was “ruthless and corrupt” and claimed to have “markedly reduced the incidence of unlawful conduct including unlawful industrial action”.

    “Without the ABCC many of the industry participants would once again prove they are singular in their disregard for the law and the use of brutal and unfair practices.”

    Lloyd, who resigned in June, concludes his term as commissioner on Wednesday, after which the merit protection commissioner will have no jurisdiction to continue an investigation into his conduct.

    The commissioner, Linda Waugh, told Guardian Australia last week it was “not appropriate” to provide information about the investigation but she intended “to conclude this matter as quickly as possible”.

    “I can indicate it is my intention to have this matter concluded before 8 August,” Waugh said.

    Anyone like to speculate how much Turdball has been defending him?

    Migration sounds more and more like a Keynesian hole digging scam.

    Had a job like that. One of the holiday jobs I had back in the late 60’s was as a fettler on the railways around Perth.

    On a couple of occasions we ran out of the usual maintenance and minor track laying so we were trucked up to the shunting yards to be gainfully employed burying rocks .

    Made sense because you didn’t want the shunters tripping over stray rocks when trotting alongside the wagons being shunted.

    Our amiable Italian ganger instructed us to get to work with his usual, ‘OK boys, get off your fucking arses and grab yourselves a fucking shovel, and look busy, the fucking green man( his boss) is around’

    After a short time we ran out of rocks as other gangs had been through the yards on rock burying details before.

    There was nothing for it than to start digging holes looking for rocks to unearth then bury. Managed to stay thusly employed until real work came along the next day.

    Lefties are an identifiable group who want to control everyone, by shutting down free speech among other tactics. This across the Anglosphere. Those who oppose them strenuously might reasonably be called the righties. That makes me one, I can’t say I like the idea of being a rightie on account of my being an anti-social bastard with an aversion to joining clubs, and constitutionally anti-authoritarian. But, as a consequence of these temperamental features, I loathe lefties.

    “It is much easier to pay for 12 submarines with a $1.5 trillion economy than one half the size.”

    They would be a damn sight easier to pay for in the existing economy if they weren’t obviously such an expensive boondoggle, vapourware, make-work scheme that is so far down the hole of incompetence that we are clearly running in to highly questionable procurement practices.

    And everybody in Canberra is thrilled to bits about it because it is huge budget allocations, trips to France in perpetuity and so degrades our naval defence capability that we are ratcheted down to near-impotence in no time at all.

    Meaning no nasty expeditionary operations with the hated Yanks and the closet Maoists in the APS can welcome the PLA-Navy ‘liberation’ forces within the foreseeable future.

    Man denies assault in Liberal Party kebab shop brawl
    Lucy Hughes Jones, The Daily Telegraph

    Subscriber only

    POLICE believe a brawl that broke out during a Liberal Party meeting at a Sydney kebab shop may have been sparked by racial and gender bias.

    Mohammed Reda has denied pushing a female police officer when the Bayside branch meeting at Naji’s Charcoal Chicken & Kebabs in Arncliffe descended into chaos in June.

    The football coach, who has a history of violence, is also accused of resisting arrest from Sergeant Joanne Dawson and assaulting Remone Gorgio.
    Police were called to Naji’s Cafe in Arncliffe after the alleged brawl broke out.

    The 28-year-old pleaded not guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm in company, assault police and resist arrest when he appeared at Sutherland Local Court today.

    Police had been investigating whether the clash was fuelled by religious and factional divides within the party but court documents reveal other alleged tensions.

    “This offence may have been racially and gender bias-motivated,” Sergeant Gerard Moloney wrote in a police bail decision dated June 26.

    Senate prayer proposal sparks division
    ROSIE LEWIS

    Katter’s Australian Party senator Fraser Anning says the daily acknowledgement of country in the Senate should be abolished instead of the prayer reading, triggering a rebuke from the Greens.

    The Senate Standing Committee on Procedure is holding an inquiry into a Greens proposal to replace the Christian prayer, which opens the chamber each day, with an “inclusive statement”.

    The Senate president would omit the prayer and instead read: “Senators, let us in silence pray or reflect upon our responsibilities to all people of Australia and to future generations.”

    In his submission to the committee, obtained by The Australian, Senator Anning labels the requirement for the prayer a “very minimal expression of humility by the Senate”.

    “Whether or not individual senators believe in Christianity has no bearing upon the value and importance of the daily prayer,” he says.

    “The historic Judaeo-Christian foundations of our nation and its laws provide a direct link to the prayer … Whether they (senators) are Christian, hold other beliefs or believe in nothing greater than themselves, they should still respect and observe these in the same way that they do the other important customs and traditions of this House.”

    Senator Anning, a Christian, argues the acknowledgement of country read by the Senate president following the prayer should be scrapped if any changes are made to the standing order.

    “As leftist virtue-signalling of the worst kind, this secular genuflection to prior Aboriginal occupation creates a hierarchy of citizenship in which those who have come to Australia later have their rights to be here devalued, the logical extension of which is to require recent immigrants to humbly acknowledge the superior rights of earlier settlers,” he says.

    Greens senator Lee Rhiannon, who moved the motion requiring the committee to set up the inquiry, said Senator Anning’s comments were a reminder “there are still people in the Senate who want to make it an even more exclusive club”.

    “Let’s remember the proposal to change the prayers does not stop people praying — it’s an inclusive start to the Senate proceedings rather than what we have at the moment, which is only for people of a certain faith and a faith that’s decreasing in numbers,” she said.

    “To want to abolish the acknowledgement of country is deeply insulting.”

    The Lord’s Prayer has been read at the start of each sitting day since federation, while the acknowledgment of country was included after the prayer in 2010 as part of a deal between the Gillard government, the Greens and independent MPs.

    The procedure committee is due to report on its findings by August 22.

    Welcome to what’s actually your country – and to an ancient ceremony invented the other day
    Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun
    April 22, 2016 1:04pm

    Good business. This reinvented superstition invades even an organisation once devoted to science but now gripped with a global warming alarmism which its boss warns ” almost sounds more like a religion”:
    Even the CSIRO, an organisation nominally pledged to rational inquiry and scientific rigour (OK, there is that climate-change hysteria), has bought in to the ‘welcome’ business, having issued guidelines for pay rates and accommodations when its laboratories need to be cleansed of “evil spirits” by an ochred contractor waving fiery foliage.

    Exposed and widely ridiculed, those guidelines were quietly removed for the internet. They remain available via Wayback Machine’s web archive, however, and can be read in full here. The supposedly ancient ‘welcome’ tradition goes back 30-40 years, whereas the House of Commons goes back nearly 700 years.

    Indigenous entertainers Ernie Dingo and Richard Whalley, of the Middar Aboriginal Theatre, claim to have invented the “welcome to country” in 1976 because two pairs of Maori visitors from NZ and the Cook Islands wanted an equivalent of their own traditional ceremony before they would dance at the Perth International Arts Festival.

    Another version is that activists shrewdly created the ceremony at about the same time to buttress land-rights claims. And Aboriginal Rhoda Roberts, head of indigenous programming at the Sydney Opera House, says the ceremonies were developed in the 1980s by members of the Aboriginal National Theatre Trust which she co-founded. Her speaker-for-hire profile claims she personally invented the term “welcome to country” along with the protocols involved. She would like welcomes to include marking guests with ochre and Aboriginal sweat.

    Yet:

    Anthropologists and early settlers failed to record anything much resembling “welcome to country” ceremonies. Bess Price, CLP Aboriginal member of the Northern Territory Parliament and Minister for Community Services, has described “welcomes” as “not particularly meaningful to traditional people anyway. We don’t do that in communities. It’s just a recent thing. It’s just people who are trying to grapple at something that they believe should be traditional.”

    Anthropologist Ron Brunton found in WA some evidence for permissions being required to enter neighbouring clans’ land (although more honoured in the breach these days) but saw no evidence of any welcome-to-countries in the state where the ceremonies were (probably) first invented.

    Adelaide archival researcher and geologist Alistair Crooks says,
    “During years of geological site inspections, I have never seen or heard of a welcome ceremony being performed when entering tribal land (invited), nor have I seen the ceremony performed when transporting Aborigines into or across various tribal boundaries. Nor is any such ceremony described by any of the early explorers or anthropologists that I am aware of.”

    The husband of Victoria’s human rights commissioner, Kristen Hilton, will face court this week over the alleged bashing of a barman following a grand final function at the Black Rock Bowling Club last year.

    Jack Panton, 42, who was recently appointed chief executive of social housing provider Unison, is understood to have become agitated when a barman refused to serve him more alcohol.

    A witness told The Age Mr Panton was “seriously pissed” when he remonstrated with the barman before throwing several punches.

    As a group of patrons allegedly attempted to restrain Mr Panton and eject him from the bowling club, he is accused of biting a patron and attempting to hit another man aged in his 70s.

    The ugly incident is understood to have been witnessed by several children who had attended the Fern Street venue to watch the game between Richmond and Adelaide.

    WA gold mine thief ‘dumbest in town’

    By Rebecca Le May
    Australian Associated Press
    10 minutes ago August 7, 2018

    A brazen thief who crashed a stolen sewage truck through a fence at a Western Australian gold mine then filled it with gold-bearing liquid from a holding dam is “the dumbest person” in town, the company says.

    Kalgoorlie’s Gold Stealing Detection Unit is investigating the recent attempted “heist” at Northern Star Resources’ Kanowna Belle mine.

    “It’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard and witnessed in Kalgoorlie,” chief executive Stuart Tonkin told AAP at the Diggers and Dealers Mining Forum on Tuesday.

    “You’ve just got to look for the dumbest person in Kalgoorlie and you’ll find them.”

    Mr Tonkin suggested the financial loss was unremarkable as the thief or thieves “don’t know what they’re doing.”

    “There’s really no value. It’s a trespassing issue,” he said.

    “None of our staff were harmed, that’s the key thing.”

    Asked about mine security, Mr Tonkin said the remote operation could be swathed in barbed wire “and someone can still drive a truck through it

    ‘Anthropologists and early settlers failed to record anything much resembling “welcome to country” ceremonies’

    You idiot. Customary welcome to country still exists. In the Kimberleys it’s smoking and water manthe. Strangers regardless of skin colour have to be welcomed to country so the resident spirits recognise them and keep them safe. It’s a duty of care to perform the rites, the TO has a ‘spiritual necessity’ to protect both country and stranger. The recent Fortescue v Yindjibardni determination granted exclusive title based on this. It’s being appealed.

    Manthe – the Host / Guest Relationship

    Manthe is also said to be a “welcoming ceremony” by Gija people who say that it “comes from the Ngarranggarni and the old people” … According to a number of Gija people, the practice of welcoming family groups or individuals into one’s camp is common within the contemporary Warmun community. It is considered both polite and appropriate for people to approach another camp in a cautious and humble manner and wait for an invitation to enter the camp… Another context is the welcoming of a ‘stranger’ who may be close kin and well known to people in the host group but someone who has never been introduced to the country that they are seeking to visit .. As one senior Gija woman
    explained: Old people use to tell us you can’t go to that person’s country and get anything. That is another person’s land. You can’t go and pick up this stuff, no, not even for bush tucker. Right, they got to manthe you first. Then you can take ‘em … Another senior Gija woman reported: They welcome you again, that country, and they give [to] you then. They gotta give it, that thing [manthe], with their own will. Well, that is the country blah alabat [that belongs to those people]. If we want to eat’em [bush tucker], well, they give us. They have welcomed we’ …

    In a situation where there is a ‘living water’ at the site being visited those performing manthe anoint the head, feet and hands of the visitor with that water as a way to introduce the visitor to the local country and resident Dreaming beings. The Gija woman Shirley Purdie explained it in the following way when introducing people to the country during a visit to country by an exploration company. “This is so they can know you.” ‘

    I reckon the biggest “put down” in the entire Southern NZ interview were her very last words to the interviewer. “God Bless”.

    Poor bastard had already been humiliated enough, but Lauren just couldn’t resist kicking the godless commie fair in the nuts. Brutal, and without mercy. Got to admire that in the woman.

    Freedom of speech comes first as uni upgrades campus rally security

    Samantha Hutchinson
    VICTORIAN POLITICAL REPORTER
    1 minute ago August 7, 2018

    La Trobe University administrators will pay to beef-up security on campus for a Liberal Party event featuring prominent therapist and social commentator Bettina Arndt, after protesters threatened to derail the event with a “rally against sexism and bigotry”.

    Liberal students at La Trobe have considered changing the date of Ms Arndt’s address over fears they wouldn’t be able to pay for ­security to restrain a rally planned to coincide with her speech.

    But university administrators yesterday told The Australian they had decided the university would cover the cost of security, out of a desire to preserve free speech and discussion on campus. “We welcome free speech and the event will go ahead,” a spokesman said.

    “Event security will be provided by the university at no cost to student organisers.”

    Well, I believe nobody wants to live under the control of others so the only distinction I see is that most people do not understand the conflict is not division within the populace but antagonism between the people and those who rule over them – to an ever increasing degree.

    I used to think that, probably because I assumed everyone was like me. I’ve changed my mind. As Shaw pointed out, freedom entails responsibility, which is why most men hate it.

    I reckon forty percent of the population want to be told what to feel, think and do. And something over ten percent want to tell everybody else what to feel, think and do. The control freak temperament.

    Together, the buggers have a working majority.

    I don’t need your involvement to deal with JC, Doc. That’s too easy in any case. But in this day and age of info everywhere, you would really have to be some kind of very dim witted putz to not accept that conspiracies are present in all manner of deceptions and rip offs. In fact you would have to be a complete moron to believe that . Just some examples;

    The UN
    AGW and Ruinables
    The Clinton Foundation.
    Defence Spending
    Immigration Policies.
    The MSM.
    Soros.

    All weirdo conspiracy theories. Need I go on?

    I would say the vast majority of people want to live under the control of others.

    I doubt it.

    The majority do seem addicted to validated truths. They can’t live without the opines of the expert and trusted.

    That is keeping them controlled. For now.

    Thanks Steve. I did it on my phone which they may not have anticipated.

    Looks like something BIG just happened, Annie:) If info is correct…Canada’s PM Justin Trudeau was just arrested and in handcuffs for plotting the murder of Pres. Trump. His own military arrested him and brought him to US. His plane landed in NJ.👍

    This is gloriously insane, I love it! Keep em coming, Annester.

    I don’t know why people are upset about Alex Jones being gagged. Once it is broadly accepted that free speech can be limited for the public good it’s all over. That happened years ago. Forget about it.

    I’m happy to share the findings but it is a five page document. Sinc, anyone, got some clues how to do this?

    Lysander – WordPress can accept Scribd documents. See here:

    I haven’t seen anyone do it in a comment, but Sinc might accept a guest post. Whether the version of WordPress that the cat uses is compatible is another question.

    They’re both wrong, Gaff’s laughably so.

    I don’t say it’s a vast majority, that was Jupes’ view. But a substantial fraction need to be told what the “right” feelings, rules and conventions are. It’s not just authorised facts about the world, although that too, it’s what you are allowed to say and think. In this sense, Jupes may be right.

    Holy crap it’s true! The Trudeau arrest is all over the news!
