    Political Reporters Go Shopping with Kamala Harris — and Gush Over Her Choices

    A group of political reporters hit the campaign trail with California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) (shown above left) on Saturday but took a break from the political journalism, instead encouraging the Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful to try on clothes and giggle with her at a South Carolina boutique.

    CNN national political reporter Maeve Reston, NBC News political reporter Ali Vitali, and CBS News political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns documented the laugh-filled shopping spree on Twitter.

    Reston’s tweet was met with a plethora of negative feedback.

    “Here’s to reporting the news and staying neutral! Great [email protected],” one user wrote.

    Another added, “Are you getting paid by @KamalaHarriscampaign?”

    Gush! Looks like the MSM have decided.

    Sen. Kamala Harris says she’s no democratic socialist

    Funny thing is, given hindsight about the outcome of the war, and that I survived it reasonably intact, I made the right decision.

    I’m not too comfortable and it’s probably quite unfair to attack numbers over his military service and experience. Even though there is cause to believe there may be some embellishments to his version of what transpired. He served in war and is a vet , on that there is no dispute so it is not good ground on which to challenge IMO. Doing so only falls into his agenda of promoting himself.

    However, the fact that he is a slimey communist, promoting lies and leftist propaganda is fair game. That should always be challenged and ruthlessly dealt with.

    It took a while, in that I beat some of the bad stuff out of you, but a excellent comment. There’s still work to be done though. We’re not finished.

  8. 1735099

    Most but not all units gave National Servicemen the choice of active service and most volunteered. Of them, two died in Borneo and 210 in Vietnam. They included those who enlisted on or during call-up or re-enlisted and voluntary National Servicemen.

    From:
    Nasho Organisation

    One suspects they’d know from their members if this was true or not, and the record would be quickly corrected if no such choice was given.

    I have no problem with the Nashos website because it makes reasonably accurate generalisations. Note “most but not all” and “most volunteered”. This is quite different from saying “all National Servicemen were volunteers” which was on the ADCC commemoration committee website until I drew their attention to it’s inaccuracy.
    Note the use of the word “inaccuracy”. Others posting here, such as Old School Conservative, would call it a lie.

    The most ironic aspect of this discussion is that anyone of the right age could have volunteered to fight in Vietnam if they were concerned about the existential threat of Communism. Insufficient did, so the Coalition solved the manpower problem by conscripting one in twenty of these non-volunteers.
    Somehow, magically, overnight, they became “volunteers”.
    In the meantime their non-balloted peers continued with their lives.
    Anyone who can’t see both a logical and moral inconsistency in this situation has rocks in their head.

    With 100m per year in donations, 50m in Qld alone, what are RSPCA doing for NQld cattle? Nothing.

    IF this is true (it’s from Facebook) it begs the question:
    If @RSPCA won’t assist livestock in times of natural disaster, what right do they have to interfere in the production & export of livestock?
    I wasn’t aware that you could pick & choose where & when animals welfare occurs.

    Shouldn’t it be SCMA you got your records from, rather than CARO, the olden days version?

    Just sayin’……….

    And one of my group here, a QLDer was unearthed regaling one of the sweet young things with tales of heroism and derring-do with what he referred to as, “the SAS, you know, the Secret Service”.

    It was then incumbent on me to ask this person (an ARES transport type) in front of all and sundry what Squadron and Troop he belonged to, along with another question which answer would only be known by regular grunts and Swanbourne people (discounts you again, Bob).

    Needless to say, it did not end well for the impostor and valour thief, for that is what he is now, and will be until long after the worms have eaten through his eyeballs and small intestine.

    BUILDING BOOM: NEW HOME APPROVALS UP 25 PER CENT IN CESSNOCK

    That was on the NBN Newcastle news last night. The boom isn’t only Cessnock, but also Lake Maquarie.

    Cessnock may sound frumpy but it has about 200 yummy wineries starting 1 km west of the town centre.

    2. These magnificent creatures are EVERYWHERE. You can’t walk round the corner without encountering flocks of them; but
    3. They are, as they say in the classics, dumb as dogshit. They appear to believe that Cyclone Oma will score a direct hit on the Goldy at 1700 Friday arvo. Jesus wept.

    = true.

    If you haven’t seen it already, wait until Friday and Saturday nights. Then you will see those same 9/10’s dressed in their shortest, most revealing evening wear. I have sometimes wondered whether there is some kind of unspoken competition to wear the least possible without getting arrested.

    Asylum seekers say Paladin ‘doing nothing’ for its $423m Manus Island deal
    Contractor’s staff doing little more than checking IDs, with security incidents typically dealt with by police


    The award-winning journalist and writer Behrouz Boochani, who is on Manus, said there were many
    locals working at the centre on low wages. He said Paladin’s staff did little more than check IDs and sit in camps by the front gate. Security incidents were typically dealt with by police, he said.

    “What I am seeing on the ground is that Paladin, they … are doing nothing,”

    So admitting they have been lying about the reign of terror they have been subjected to and seamlessly switching to “they dont do anything” wont even register with the Rintouls and other pro ‘fugee reprobates.

    Weve always been at war with eastasia..comrade.

    That’s a fare comment although most people over the years who have pointed out his embellishments came from service members. Look at how long it to acknowledge some grey in being sent to Vietnam. After getting the same reception all theses years If he was as smart as he thinks and just seeking clarity he would change tact and stop padding with irrelevant details and diversionary hooks, but no this feeds his victimhood.

    Cat and Van both have galloping RDS, so you can see why they might accept. Any publicity is better than no publicity.

    In light of a rapidly approaching election Terri is the dispensable victim from the Liars, who’ve had unusually bad press this last week. None of the more senior ALP luminaries dare being mauled?

    I loved the visiting of his friend’s tumbledown mansion in a well-off suburb that bespoke of other lives and other times, as did the sailing ships of Stunsail, at a time when he was trying to fight his way out of that dreary cubed cheese and red onions on toothpicks suburbia. And the descriptions of his mother’s hallway, with its amputees’ equipment lining the walls. An honest portrait of himself as a callow youth and his brother as his larrikin hero. He married the wrong woman young, and said to her it’s not you, it’s me. It was her, of course, but mostly it was him. He was a writer, no doubt, as was she. But tortured by alcohol on a Greek Island. He and Charmian, both.

    PNG Government Speaker and MP Job Pomat: “If it’s happening in Australia then let it be the Australian way. But on our soil, on our land, it must be done our way.”

The reason I pay for a subscription, be it to the Telegraph or to The Australian, is to read and comment. I am never offensive with my comments. I am seriously thinking about terminating my subscriptions to both. However Tim’s blog is still much better than Andrew Bolt’s…which has become a sewer infested with GetUp trolls.

    If Peterson addresses MacGregor as female its his choice not government. That was his point from the beginning.

    This is a fairly weak position, truth be told. The only point in resisting government diktat re gender identity is that it is wrong; it requires us to conform to error and to assent to a lie. The enormity has nothing to do with the lack of choice but with its falsity and its requirement that we assent to the lie.

    Agree…but will the Libs do anything? NOPE. You see… the Liberal party, under Howard, Abbott, Turdbull and Morrison have sat on their bums and done nothing whilst parasitic leftist groups such as GetUP have grown stronger, more emboldened and richer. The left and groups such as GetUp rely on the right’s passivity, its laziness, its ineptitude and the fact that too many people on the right want to be seen as “nice”, as “dignified”, as “decent…yep that really wins elections. The left are very good at campaigning, they are very good at lies and they are very good at spin. I live in Wentworth and watched with amazement how, during the recent by-election, the Liberals DID NOTHING…ABSOLUTELY NOTHING…whilst GetUp were everywhere on the ground supporting that putrid disgrace…..Phoney Phelps. GetUp were driving around Wentworth in a large van with a picture of the Bondi Icebergs being swamped by a huge tsunami….well that really made me laugh…as if global warming would cause a tsunami!

    Last week, it was announced that FMD was detected in meat products declared and seized at Australian airports several times since December.

    Mr Lamb said the Australian wool industry would be decimated if there was an outbreak of the disease.

    “It’s always a worry as China has fairly strict quarantine regulations and we can’t afford to have our major customer, who is taking nearly 80 per cent of the Australian wool clip most years, to be out of the market at any stage,” he said.

    Mr Wilcox cited the FMD outbreak in the United Kingdom in 2001 which led to a two year suspension of wool exports from the UK into China.

    Alan Moran on Bolt; Bolt is still peddling this idea that Australia’s emissions are so small relative to the rest of the world that we are punishing ourselves via renewables for no discernible benefit. This argument is only effective if you believe CO2 is the potent GHG that alarmism would have us believe. But the radiative or heat trapping effect, to use the incorrect alarmist terminology, of CO2 is severely constrained by Beer Lambert law such that any addition CO2 molecule in the atmosphere above about 100PPM has a logarithmic declining effect; at its current level of 410 PPM the atmosphere is effectively saturated with further CO2 having no GH influence.

    In addition as I have noted before the increase in CO2 is largely natural.

    Finally a warming world is a better world.

    Alarmism and its solution, renewables, would have to be the most pernicious idea ever perpetrated on mankind.

    it’s probably quite unfair to attack numbers over his military service and experience. Even though there is cause to believe there may be some embellishments to his version of what transpired.

    I find Numbers’ obsessive promotion of socialism far worse than his perpetual posts about Vietnam.

    That said, he has published a book on his time in the Army. I see no reason to doubt that he has stuck as close to the truth as fallible human memory and the oft dubious contents of official records allow. If he had not, there are his former comrades of 7 RAR who would have outed him for major big noting, to say nothing of organisations like AMZMI (??, correct title??) that would also have done so.

    Leave it be, rather, try to convince him of the anti-humanism of all brands of socialism. That is a more worthy objective.

    This is a fairly weak position, truth be told. The only point in resisting government diktat re gender identity is that it is wrong; it requires us to conform to error and to assent to a lie. The enormity has nothing to do with the lack of choice but with its falsity and its requirement that we assent to the lie.

    SOP for lefties is to exploit good manners. If a tranny poses as a woman, telling it that it’s nothing of the kind is considered rude by many conservatives, who will go along with it on the basis of little white lies to reduce social friction. These days, I favour telling the truth. Going along with a lie just leads to more outrageous lies. When someone exploits my easy going good nature, I stop having one.

    Our conservatives tend to be very deferential – in the public sphere we do not have the same cut throat debate as the US (and to a lesser but real extent in Canada).

    Our lefties have no gift for argument. They get by on invoking an approved talking point and waiting for their emotional support mob to holler and whoop, and drown out any contrary point. And, as I say, our conservatives usually politely let it slide.

    Peterson has a different style. He will respond to their feeble snark with sharp barbs that cannot be unheard. I really doubt the ABC has his measure.

    They will do their darnedest, and resort to the exaggerated indignation histrionics where they pretend something doesn’t deserve an answer to cover for their actually not having one, and they will be able to congratulate themselves afterward for how cleverly they were able to demolish the notorious Jordan Peterson. And they will never even begin to conceive of just how outclassed and out of their depth they were.

    The unionised Centre for Remote Healthand the unionised Council of Remote Area Nurses (CRANA) offers a huge array of information for medical treatment of persons on remote offshore island.

    AND four (4) complete handbooks with ALL having an array of pharmaceuticals suggested to use for those personnel in remote and off-shore islands.

    Constipation is discussed p381 +p416 in their CARPA Standard Treatment Manual

    Notwithstanding editorial errors, the reference section p422-448
    Vancomycin dose for over 12 years is 600g – this should be 600mg
    offers a vast array of drugs for use, presumably all stocked in outback and island communities. Along with any other drugs prescribed for the vast array of non-closure of the gap diseases.

    There is also online I find:
    2. Minymaku Kutju Tjurkapa Women’s Business Manual
    3. CRANAplus Procedures Manual (check out p88-90 – gruesome)
    4. Medicines Book for Aboriginal and TSI Health Workers (presumably registered)

    as such all is offered, culturally appropriate and it seems a massive Committee of experts and academics in Indigenous health checks all this medical information regularly. Qld seems to have its own special manual.

    …Fujita and Shoji Okuda were ready for their flight over Melbourne. They could still see the beam of the unmanned Cape Wickham lighthouse in the distance through the light fog. I-25 moved forward to generate sufficient wind for take-off.

    They were in the air about 2 hours before dawn on Thursday 26 February 1942. Fujita flew north across Bass Strait headed for Cape Otway where he banked to the north east and followed the coastline to the Point Lonsdale lighthouse near the narrow entrance to Port Phillip Bay. He then headed north east towards the city of Melbourne. Fujita struck a few heavy banks of cloud. He flew across the Bellarine Peninsula towards Portarlington. The city of Geelong was 16 kms away to the left of his aircraft on the other side of Lake Connewarre.

    He was flying NNE as he flew over Portarlington. He then flew another 24 kms along the western edge of Port Phillip Bay. He continued to encounter heavy cloud and was unsure of his position. They eventually dropped down from 1,500 metres into a gap in the clouds. At about 6.45 a.m. Fujita cleared the base of the clouds when he reached 300 metres. They had exited the clouds directly above the RAAF’s Laverton airfield. There were about 12 Wirraways based at Laverton along with some Lockheed Hudsons and some Avro Ansons.

    Not quite the attack on Darwin, but a terrific story.

    Chris Kenny has likely thought about:

    “She probably suffered the most from the death threats, ostracism and abuse. In Murray Bridge, she was right in the middle of the Nunga community. The need to keep in touch with the other dissidents by phone meant she couldn’t afford to pay the bill she ran up. Eventually her phone was cut off, leaving her isolated. The proponents had the phones, faxes and cars of the [Aboriginal legal aid] and other ATSIC-funded organisations to get them through.”

    Source: https://www.smh.com.au/opinion/still-no-room-for-the-truth-on-hindmarsh-20030519-gdgs8d.html

    Kenny’s excellent book It Would Be Nice If There Was Some Women’s Business: The Story Behind the Hindmarsh Island Affair details accurately the Hindmarsh Bridge Affair.

    Kenny himself was shunned by other journalists, a process which climaxed with an attack on him by Stuart Littlemore and the ABC’s Media Watch, on August 7, 1995. When Kenny’s book was launched in Canberra in 1996, invitations were issued to every media organisation in the parliamentary press gallery. Only one reporter turned up.

    Shelley Gare in Quadrant wrote a very good piece in 2010 – Death by Silence in the Writers’ Combat Zone.

    I have a barely 17 year old son who has been struggling with self worth issues. Over the last couple of months he has found some relief through a psychologist at a local (rural) medical clinic. My wife, who makes his appointments, is currently os and messaged me a reminder about an upcoming appointment for which she couldn’t remember the date/time. I rang the clinic to determine the timing of the appointment only to be informed that i am not an authorised person and therefore can not be given the appointment time. I told the sympathetic receptionist that I had no other option but to cancel the appointment as I was his only lift and he was not likely to ring for the appointment time himself.
    We are run by a fucking clown show. Laws are brought in to protect a very few that affect the rest. A father trying very hard to support his son emotionally and financially is not “authorised” to find out something as harmless as an appointment time. Fmd.

    There is plenty said about Manus and Nauru by those who have never spent time on either island. At the time of the Tampa crisis I was doing a 3 year contract in PNG. At that time the refugee camp was set up on Manus Island. The company I worked for sold insecticides. The Commonwealth was under threat from Julia Gillard’s ex double barrelled law firm saying that the 250 refugees were suffering from malaria and they were been infected by the mosquitoes on Manus Island.

    Skills in PNG are in short supply and as I had worked for Rentokil in South Africa and while working for Rentokil did a pest control diploma. It turned out that this piece of paper had value and I seemed to be the only person in PNG who had a formal qualification in pest control that was recognised. Note I was a manager but anybody who completed the diploma got $500 a month extra. Anyway the Commonwealth sent me over from Port Moresby to set up a vector control program. Entertainment was provide by Australian reporters and PNG security refusing them on the plane. They don’t take nonsense there!

    The camp is at the old naval base which has many broken down nissen huts and ships sinking at their moorings. The camp was nissen huts and dongas (containers) with a lot of shaded areas. A chain link fence was all the security with the only barbed wire around a power transformer. There were a few cardboard signs hung on the fence demanding entry to Oz. There was a large nissen hut as a mosque and even a grassed foot ball field. Males were separated from women and families and the OIM doctors told me why. I’ll stay out of that.

    Contractors stayed in the same donga types as the refugees. We at the same food generally although I had some status, not sure why, but I ate mostly in the officers mess with the 6 OIM doctors who were onsite. They were quite open about what was happening between the refugees and expressed disgust. Once again I’ll leave it there. My stomach does not need a repeat of the churn I felt.

    One of the doctors was an expert in tropical disease and he and I inspected the entire area looking for evidence of mosquito larvae and mosquitos. Found none but I worked with him to set up a daily program of spraying insecticides. To be honest he knew very much more that I did about it all but I made the right MMMMs when he was explaining what we should do.

    What I came away from Nauru was an understanding of what type of people were on the island at that time. This was gleaned from personal observation, talking to other contractors, doctors and locals as well as having freedom to see all parts of the camp. These were not people you would want as neighbours. They were treated incredibly well with more medical attention than anywhere in Australia. Food was good. The accommodation was airconditioned and there was plenty of shade and space for kids to play.

    I had nearly completed my contract when I went to PNG and few weeks later I was back here. The fake news was incredible. The camp and the treatment of the refugees was nothing like it was portrayed in the media and by left wing politicians. I can’t say it was unexpected as I well remember seeing overseas journalists in South Africa tossing coins in to bins and filming black kids “scrabbling for food” as they fought to get the coins.

    ‘OK, the bombings were reported at the time ( newspapers) but not written about much after the war so lost to general history.’

    The Broome Museum – a fascinating if somewhat chaotic establishment – has a cutting from an east coast metropolitan daily – I forget which one – that obviously reflected an official press release about the disastrous 3 March 1942 air raid on Broome.

    The gust if the article was:

    the raid was a failure

    the Japanese raiders had suffered considerable losses

    there was minimum damage to Broome.

    “The most ironic aspect of this discussion is that anyone of the right age could have volunteered to fight in Vietnam if they were concerned about the existential threat of Communism.

    Somehow, magically, overnight, they became “volunteers”.
    In the meantime their non-balloted peers continued with their lives.

    JC,
    Regarding your repeated use of the word faggot more than happy to keep the discussion going.

    At 0127am today you said
    “No, I would never insult gays with the use of the term. Why ever for. I’m using the term to describe you, not as a homosexual, but as a faggot”.

    If faggot in your world is “not as a homosexual” then what does it refer to ?
    You also asked

    “I guess you could ask those who abuse me in ethnic terms, but I don’t believe you ever have. If you’re so offended about being called a faggot, I would guess you’d also be offended about ethnic abuse. You little faggot hypocrite”.

    I have no idea how people abusing you in ethnic terms is relevant to our discussion when you acknowledge I have never engaged in such abuse. Am I supposed to jump in to help you out when somebody mentions your background ? Here was me thinking you could take it but clearly not.

    You repeated the ethnic abuse angle when you responded to Lizzie later in the morning as below.

    It’s OK for bundles of wooden sticks, though, or special rissoles made of minced gut.

    Did he now, Liz. Thanks for letting us know. Did he say anything about abusing people about their ethnic backgrounds as well?
    Stick to looking in the mirror and asking if you’re the prettiest gal of all.

    Speech on the Cat is as free as you will find anywhere. Sinc has made a few preferences known: no ‘c’ bomb or ‘n’ word, and he has asked gentle people to not use the word ‘faggot’ except in relationship to foodstuffs and bundles of wood.
    —————————————————————————————————
    Now JC what was your problem with Lizzie’s post ? Was it merely that she indicated Sinc requested people not use the word ? Or do you dispute that Sinc has said that ?

    So are we to assume that just because somebody (I have no idea who) abuses your background that gives you an excuse to use constant homosexual insults ? If it is not a gay slur why the need to try and excuse yourself by raising hardly seen ethnic abuse.

    Can you also confirm or deny raising the issue of a forum member expressing support for his homosexual son’s relationship ? Was that an issue for you or was it just a great opportunity to have a go at him ? Either way it is a perfect example of your character.

    ——————————————————————–
    My issue is not with you calling me a faggot but that you clearly use the word in a derogatory manner intended to insult or niggle. Google searches on the word are going to find a lot of references to its use here. I may have missed something and perhaps Sinc has now changed his policy and it is now an acceptable form of addressing people here. Or perhaps you have an exemption. Certainly gives the impression that you have some homophobic issues as none of the people in my work or social circles would use such a word.

    Labor and the Greens are past masters at playing the lone individual sympathy card and no-one on the right has the courage to stand up against the touchy-feely vibe. Laws get passed which help a small minority and the much larger majority are so civilised and accommodating that they allow their own well being to be trampled on.
    In the case of Noodles and his son, lawmakers and company policy makers have set the default position of “fathers are evil” and nothing can change that.

    Sure, Noodles could get listed at some future date but in a well functioning society it would be parents as next of kin being automatically allowed all information about their children.

    With children, well, you don’t have them for long. By 15 they are chomping on freedom’s bit.
    By 18, they think they are grown-up. But they still need you – as grown up grown ups.
    They know they are still on training wheels in the big wide world.

    I have been checking obituaries; well, checking up some old names, blasts from the past, which led to the obits, in the SMH. Two younger than me have died and one who was older, someone once very important to me. This is a very sobering thought, mortality. It’s good to know, but I won’t be doing that again for a while.

For most of the draft as far as I can remember, you could avoid the army call-up by joining the part time navy BEFORE your number came out of the barrel. However if you hadn’t joined before the draft, that’s when it gets complicated.

    In the beginning when the army wanted boots on the ground, it was too late to start considering options after you had won first prize in the uniform lotto. But towards the end, maybe around mid-1970, they started to let lottery winners opt for the navy instead, under certain circumstances.

    Sorry, but I don’t have any further details.

    Come on head prefect you can do it: open borders are bad. I know its emotionally frightening for you but here’s another example; non-muslim girls have to wear hijabs so muslim won’t attack them in Austria:

    It’s easy: open borders are bad.

    I’m not sure what transpired between you and maxi and I really don’t want to get in the middle of this, but he does have a point though.

    What happened, Roost. Tell uncle JC what that brute did to you?

    I’ll raise you an Uisce Beatha on that.

    Cheers, Lizzie, and good evening.
    I’m on my first Shiraz of the day.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes, busy day today re the Bombing Commemoration. Did six interviews; another two tomorrow am.

    Only three veterans from WWII this year. This might be it, but here’s hoping not. Brian Winspear from Tassie is still looking (and sounding) great at 99. Here’s the Vultee Vengeance aircraft type he flew bombardier for, after surviving as a Hudson bomber gunner….

    old School Conservative;
    I was in the first ballot (50% date selection or thereabouts) and also missed out with the date either side selected. my understanding was that this was specifically for the Army. “A Nation at War” Edwards, Allen & Unwin lists the dates.That book refers to “the Regular Army Supplement”. One would need to read the Act I expect. I was always suspicious that the large draft allowed selection by skill and future value after deferment to complete useful studies.

    For most of the draft as far as I can remember, you could avoid the army call-up by joining the part time navy BEFORE your number came out of the barrel. However if you hadn’t joined before the draft, that’s when it gets complicated.

    If you had joined the Citizen’s Military Forces – now the Army Reserve – before you were balloted for call -up, and went on to complete six years efficient service – completed all your training obligations, and qualified at range practice, you were exempt from being conscripted. What emerged was that certain reluctant heroes joined the Citizen’s Military Forces, and resigned, when they weren’t called up. To counteract that, it was decreed that, if you joined the C.M.F., and failed to complete your six years, you were called up, whether you had been balloted or not.

    The Citizen’s Forces took years to recover from the Vietnam era – a proposal to mobilize them for service in Viet Nam never eventuated, and they gained a reputation for being full of draft dodgers.

    I know, another reference to gays.

    Ladies, Karl Largerfeld has died. Don’t all cry at once.

    Drudge:
    LAGERFELD DEAD IN PARIS…

    ‘KAISER OF FASHION’…

    I swear, it’s the only time Drudge has been timely reporting a story for years…. when gay dude passed away.

    You did great work Top Ender.
    As someone who has been up on stage with Alan Jones may ai compliment you in keeping him grounded.
    You covered the subject matter with a breezy authority to be much admired.
    And all while wearing your collar and tie territory style.
    God bless ya.

  228. Ah JC somehow you remembered the post. Best to admit it before I came up with it.

    If you say he is not a forum member why did you start your post naming the forum member and then saying “honest question. Are you the whiney fuck ………

    Or were you being dishonest ?

    Seems a very odd thing to ask somebody if you know it is not him. Again an indication of your character either way you put it.

    Google Catallaxy Files JC faggot. It popped up. As I mentioned some of the posts the search reveals indicates post number and time but when you actually look in the thread the words are not there and in some cases the post sequence jumps one. I don’t know how it works but the impression I have formed is that somebody is cleaning up after your “faggot droppings”. I could be wrong but it looks odd. Others are welcome to do the same search.

    I thought you were the expert on keeping details of people’s posts. Not so good at keeping track of your own.

    However no need to thank me. You are welcome.

  229. Old School Conservative

    MV, ZK2A and yackman – thank you very much.

  230. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Evening again Zulu.

    Good evening again , Memory Vault. Your very good health, indeed.

  231. MatrixTransform

    can’t concentrate on funny and clever stuff … Bwett’s tears made my keyboard soggy.

    STFU and do something except whinge

  232. struth

    Zulu, I’m feeling particularly fine tonight and have had three glasses of scotch.
    Very impressed with top ender.
    Should I go for another.
    I do my exercise in the morning.
    How many do you think is reasonable?

    Washington Post Editorial Board’s Executive Assistant ‘Heartbroken’ Jussie Smollett May Have Staged Attack, Says She ‘Needs it to Be True’

    If Smollett’s story is found to be untrue, it will cause irreparable damage to the communities most affected. Smollett would be the first example skeptics cite when they say we should be dubious of victims who step forward to share their experiences of racist hate crimes or sexual violence. The incident would be touted as proof that there is a leftist conspiracy to cast Trump supporters as violent, murderous racists. It would be the very embodiment of “fake news.”

    And that reason, more than any other, is why I need this story to be true, despite its ugliness and despite what it would say about the danger of the world I live in.

    Can anyone here get the full hilarity from behind the WashPo paywall?

  234. Memoryvault

    Nothing another half dozen large Shirazes won’t fix, Zulu (380ml wineglass.)
    Time to pour number 2.
    Cheers.

  235. JC

    Rooster

    Okay, it’s confirmed, you’re a fucking idiot. As though we needed any confirmation. More likely, you were making up a bullshit story about me knowing full well that the person I/we were laughing about was that Q&A imbecile frequently taking his gay kid on the program like a ventriloquist doll.
    Now fuck off as you’re a waste of air.

  236. MatrixTransform

    Should I go for another.

    JC seems to rule the chook yard here, so need to be careful of his talons.

    So TE, that was a great show on Jones. How long have you been researching this? There are great stories in the Kimberleys, as I’m sure you are aware.

  238. Matrix, since your first sentence is an obvious lie / exaggeration you will have to excuse me for not bothering to engage with you. However feel free to slip in behind JC’s tailcoats whenever you feel the need to associate yourself with the Head Homophobe.
