    The Australian comment approving moderators certainly don’t like “homosexual lobby” in any criticism of RA or Qantas.
    Many…many rejections.

    Have you tried Gaystapo? It does include the magic word “gay”. Surely that would be sufficiently inclusive!

    allegedly shouldercharging and hospitalising a female police officer in Sydney.

    The cops have missed a massive opportunity to clean up the streets. Send out the cannon fodder quota appointees with a hardened, bordering on psychotic tough nut, old school cop and let the magic happen. Crime would eventually slow in comparison with the improved growth in funeral services. Win, win.

    China Beefs Up Dog Meat Consumption Amid Pork Shortage (22 Oct)

    Due to the skyrocketing price of pork amid an ongoing shortage, rural Chinese are dusting off traditional dog meat recipes which had lost appeal until recently, SCMP reports.

    “Why not choose dog meat if you want some meat?” recommended a waiter in Wan’an county located within Jiangxi province.

    Or monkey. And if you run out of monkeys:

    Greedy killer monkeys found eating large rats in Malaysia, leaving scientists ‘stunned’ (22 Oct)

    Greedy killer monkeys were found to be catching and gobbling up large rats in Malaysia.

    Shocked scientists uncovered the rat-catching macaques on palm oil plantations – and say the hungry predators could be used as pest control.

    The southern pig-tailed macaques were typically thought to chow down on fruit.

    Just don’t stun and eat scientists please.

    knuckles, I used to live in inner Sydney, and dopey gay men told me that they voted for Clover Moore because they liked her earrings. True. The ones who voted for her when she wore BDSM gear (leather necklace with metal studs) is not recorded.

    The gay party scene in inner Sydney has to be seen to be believed. They all imagine that they will be young and beautiful forever, and heap scorn on the old blokes seeking action.

    IMHO, one of John Le Carre’s best efforts was when Jack Brotherhood talked to Magnus Pym’s oldest friend, now Sir Kenneth Sefton Boyd, MP.

    Ensconsed in a crumbling Victorian house on land worth millions, with socks and underwear drying in front of the fire, shacked up with Steggie, a gay whore.

    It is reminiscent of the stories of wealthy British pooves buying boys in Morocco. Plenty of books about that.

    If you think that the predator pool is hard on women, wait till you have seen it in the gay world.

    From a reader in Argentina:

    Hi from Argentina, I am glad real Catholics are seeing the sheer evil behind all his Pachamama cult, it is deeply rooted in the traditions of Amerindian people in north Argentina, Bolivia, Peru. The Pachamama represents the “mother earth” in the shape of a woman, these statuettes with the red belly are depicting one important ritual in this pagan cult in which women pour their menstrual blood on the soil as an offering to the mother earth, many women do this here in those rituals, Argentina and Latin America in general aren’t really catholic, the remnants of centuries of paganism prior to Columbus are lingering and hard to erase, even people who say they are catholic participate in these rituals and sadly the [removed] Bergoglio keeps encouraging this disgusting evil.

    https://mundabor.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/the-truth-about-pachamama-straight-from-argentina/

    So glad those men cast out the pagan idols from that church.

    Managing FP and straying HSMM (BVCC)

    “Upon written permission “‘ means, legally, only what has been agreed to, no more, no less.

    Eg :
    If FP requests insertion of HSMM (BVCC) into the Sensual Mound OR Opening (SMOO), after signing has taken place, any conditions stipulated must be strictly adhered to .
    If “I’ll only stick the head of it in” has been verified and signed, any further penetration, even by mere centimetres. without written permission, is criminal activity and unacceptable in a modern society.

    What Should GASSA do in the event of an incursion?

    All activity must cease immediately and the OHSC married department contacted immediately.
    Punishments will be severe and will also take into consideration the FP’s prior offending, the colour of his skin and the ** level of his belief in the Climate emergency.

    **(non believers never get permission to be at this stage, as 97% of Climate Scientists agree that penetration can cause pregnancy.)

    THE GOVENMENT DOES NOT TAKE INCURSIONS LIGHTLY and punishments can be very severe , including tax audits from the ATO.

    So I was rectifying a typo in something earlier today, and in the process of doing so realised I may have invented a word.

    Statan. (noun) (stay-tun)

    Any incarnation of the evil nanny state and its regulatory minefield making life for the ordinary person unnecessarily difficult. Such as:

    The multiplying fury of negotiating several thousand witches’ hats travelling at 15kph while someone in hi-vis 500m away operates a whipper snipper.

    FPPV
    (Filthy Pig’s Performance Variables)

    Upon assessment, if GASSA feels that at any time the officially agreed action is not being enacted, or is being enacted poorly, or indeed taking too long to get to stated aim, immediately upon making FP aware of his failure, the attempt must cease and be reported to OHSC married division as a FPSF (filth pig sexual failure) and recorded.
    Here, and only at this time, once actions have ceased, can the GASSA and FP discuss and sign off on alternatives, however continual failure to achieve objectives may see a ban placed on the FP from requesting or stating, what he knows he cannot achieve, and thereby wasting everyone’s time.

    EG.
    “I will make love to you all night long”.
    (this is murky territory, as vague notions of love making are too generalistic. Government strongly supports clear language regarding stated goals.
    “I am going to fuck you until our arse caves in”, is more appropriate as clear goals are much more easily measured)

    Although GASSA may at times, even feel as if the FP has achieved some level of success, praise should not be given, as this gives the FP, (especially white ones ) a false sense of worth, and may cause many problems in the future.

    Imminent compulsory copulation compliance (h/t struth)

    We need an Australian Copulation Compliance Commission!

    Excellent article.

  30. Cactus

    Would the new ACCC be liaising with the Clean Energy Authority to set quotas on licenced liaisons each year? Reason being is each liaison can lead to a birth and the carbon emissions from each person is substantial. To meet our Paris commitments we could just slowly ratchet down the allowed liaisons in order to meet our quota. We could even have a market mechanism which would enable trading of licenced liaisons between different couples and throuples.

    You know it makes sense.

  37. notafan

    Well I’m not convinced that the ‘idols’ were actual Pachamama ones.

    As I said this morning no doubt there is some element of syncretism but I very much doubt local bishops would carry pagan goddess images in a Catholic church profession unless mislead.

    I wasn’t aware that modernists were claiming a great wrong was done in the Tiber Toss.

    If they were intentionally using Pachamama idols they clearly don’t belong in a Catholic church.

    Side issues and miscellaneous:
    Taking matters into their own hands.

    The government is now very aware that since this legislation has come into effect, there has been a marked increase in NSW’s FP’s visiting Pornhub and other pornography and to become Totally Orgasmic Solo Sexually Erotic Rebels, (TOSSERs).
    This is unacceptable behaviour , and selfish White cis male behaviour ,where we have had it reported that the FP’s are having a good time while looking at far younger GASSA and SMOOs while FTC (feeding the chooks) excessively.

    This is estimated to cost the community millions of dollars in future visual care, and therefore must be stamped out.
    Other costs are the many other environmental costs that are associated with love bite deflated rubber dolls (that are not UN accredited) and an increased use in Petroleum jellies which destroy the OZONE layer. (97% of climate scientists paid by us agree)

    If you, The GASSA, suspect your FP is taking the BVCC or HSMM into his own hands, or has made online purchases of the rubber variety, please call the OHSC married department immediately.

    We do secret testing involving the FP digesting ball bearings and experts test whether your cat is still alive 24 hours later.

    Don’t lose sleep over the farmers that pay extra for the promise they will get rain, and their neighbors will miss out.

    Stories about grinches that happily paid extra money to a conman for the promise he would starve out the neighbors by cutting their rain off.

    Didn’t work, but the grinch got the pleasure of secretly gloating for a couple of months in anticipation.

    This is always where it ends, starts off promising to make it rain on command, then goes back to identified hungry gutted sociopaths and milks them for a second seasonal payment by promising to secretly drought out the competition.

    In an incident that was symptomatic of the degenerating relationship between two of Australia’s highest-ranking rugby officials, multiple sources have told the Herald that former Wallaby Morgan Turinui was forced to intervene to stop Cheika and Castle tearing into each other in front of dozens of guests at the embassy in Tokyo’s Azabu Juban district.

    The Herald understands the argument was over Castle’s insistence that the Wallabies follow through on their commitment to attend the September 25 function, which was held in the garden of the embassy on the Wednesday night before Australia’s crunch pool game against Wales.

    Embassy officials wanted the entire squad and staff to attend but, in the midst of the fallout from winger Reece Hodge’s suspension in the days prior, and because the Wallabies were a few days out from the most important game of their campaign, Castle had offered a compromise that the team send four players and some other Australian rugby dignitaries.

    Cheika continued to push back, unwilling to send any players, a scenario that would have been a major embarrassment for RA.

    In response, sources told the Herald Castle went above Cheika and asked director of rugby Scott Johnson to marshal some players. Johnson did so, with Jordan Petaia, Folau Fainga’a and Christian Leali’ifano going along.

    Later Cheika had a change of heart and, when he approached the players about going, was furious to find out that Castle and Johnson had gone over his head on the issue.

    The function went ahead as planned, with chairman Cameron Clyne, a number of Classic Wallabies – including Turinui – Rugby Australia staff and other Australian rugby figures in attendance.

    But tensions boiled over towards the end of the function when Castle approached Cheika to thank him for turning up and bringing the players under the circumstances.

    Cheika took umbrage and the interaction escalated into a loud argument, with the coach unloading on Castle about her actions.

    Turinui was forced to step in when no one else was willing to do so, asking them not to have the argument in public. Castle composed herself and stayed on for the remainder of the function.

    Neither Cheika, Castle, nor Turinui would comment on the incident.

    But in the wake of Cheika’s resignation on Sunday and his comments about having “no relationship” with his chief executive, the incident sheds light on how high tensions had grown over the course of the campaign.

    Sources inside RA and close to the organisation also indicated that while Cheika never publicly criticised the board’s decision to appoint Johnson in the director of rugby role above him, plus a panel of selectors, it was a structural overhaul that dismayed him.

    ‘Old, white, wealthy’: ABC admits failures in news perspective

    but knocked back claims the taxpayer-funded organisation’s current affairs coverage is biased.

    Mr Morris kicked off a three-year plan to increase diversity for the newsroom in September with a boot camp in Bankstown and believes this approach will help lift audiences at a time when digital audiences are reaching their peak.

    “If you are old and white and wealthy and you live in Mosman, the ABC does a lot for you. But if you are not those things and you live in the outer suburbs of our cities the ABC is much, much less relevant to you on a daily basis,” Mr Morris said.

    “Our ambition is to reach into parts of Australia geographically, socio-economically, culturally, even in a gender sense, to serve Australians who are under-served by us currently. And in many cases that’s a geographical footprint.”

    City of Newcastle becomes the first council to move to 100 per cent renewable energy

    From the article from fuckedfacts:

    They include a 250 megawatt wind farm at Bowman’s Creek, a 250 megawatt pumped hydro scheme at Bells Mountain, a 250 megawatt gas-fired power station at Tomago. It is also hoped the 113 megawatt Kyoto energy park near Scone will also be built.

    Ever seen a bunch of chicks in the same workplace? It’s fascinating.

    If there are more chicks than blokes, then that’s ok. The balance holds, even if there’s say one bloke and six chicks. If it’s all-chicky, then look out.

    Cliques and alliances form, shift, disintegrate and reconstruct like those in the Middle East.

    Blokes will tell each other to get fucked, that their football team is chockers with fags and have punishing discussions on how small each other’s dicks are. But that’s it. The job gets done, the task accomplished.

    Chicks hold grudges for generations. They pay each other compliments through gritted teeth, then when the subject woman ducks out of earshot it’s all hushed, urgent commentary on her hair or the size of her arse and/or will she shut up about her renos and how much her hubby makes who’s probably cheating on her because seriously you wouldn’t root that.

    You need to cut the air with a hedge clipper, and at any instant the cold war threatens to become a hot conflict that would make the first 20 minutes of Saving Private Ryan look like a Jane Austen screenplay.

    Conservative transphobes reduce womanhood to bodily functions all the time, but they only pretend to be in awe of these functions when it allows them to exclude other women from being defined as such. The rest of the time, they don’t even try to hide their disgust.

    Male birds outnumbered females by 60 per cent to 40 per cent across museums
    Leaving out female members of the animal

    I may be wrong, but in many vertebrate species the male is the beautiful, more adorned sex. They must lure a mate because the female gets to pick and choose.

    If there are more males it will reflect the fact that among birds males are more spectacular. The females can get away with being more drab and being less likely to attract the attention of predators – which would be a benifit while incubating eggs.

    Why ever did they think a Gnew Zealand Gnetball Gnome would be a sensible choice to run Rugby?

    Because, like so many other sports, including the AFL, there are few boards left with any ex-player involvement. So it’s all about virtue signalling and cosying up with other SJWs to springboard onto other board positions etc and to get invited here, there, everywhere. And when there’s a shortfall in funding, to lobby government, which is why ex-politicians have become the go-to people on some of these boards.

    The loudest and whingiest – the frightbats – have persuaded themselves that they can easily do anything that they see men do.

    Men are brought up to take things in their stride, but they interpret as meaning it is easy. The tradesman making a comfortable life as a plumber spends his day with his hands in the most repulsive muck and excrement. The business man who has trips to Jakarta and New York is trapped in hotel rooms and meetings, and suddenly having to work 16 hours because of an unforeseen problem when he would rather be at home with his wife, kids, and a drink.

    They have no first hand experience of these realities, drawing instead on TV shows (where the mundane is edited out to focus on the dramatic) or from a circle of acquaintances similarly ignorant of the real world – they reinforce and echo their mythologies and drown out the jackhammers, the cell phones, the traffic, the factory equipment, the 5:00 alarm clocks, the tapping keyboards and the abrupt chirps and pips imperiously declaring that a method is barred and the human must find yet another, etc.

    And yet the one thing they are supposed to be good at – writing – they are wretched.

    Some people might say that the only good frightbat is a dead frightbat. But I don’t see what good they would be even then.

    Victoria has signed a fresh deal with the Chinese government and its global ‘Belt and Road’ infrastructure project with Premier Daniel Andrew urging other Australian governments to follow suit.

    The agreement, signed in Beijing on Wednesday evening, will deepen cooperation between the state and the Communist-ruled country in the key areas of infrastructure, innovation, ageing and trade development.

    Wednesday’s deal was signed only a few hours after federal Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton questioned whether the Premier’s trade efforts in China were in the “national interest”.

    Insurance companies are full-on climate doomsters. Why? So they can extract maximum premium increases from the frightened masses (and pocket the largesse when storm, flood and fire frequencies stay pretty much the same as they have been for a century). And who is doing the most to frighten the masses? The ABC of course, doing most of the advertising for the insurance companies, at taxpayer expense. Rather than start a business hiring gen-sets for the coming power blackouts, I should invest in insurance companies as their profits inflate from all the ABC hot air.

    Calli,
    Has the Hunter run out of coal?
    Coal’s steam boilers have some thermal lag and can struggle to match supply to load,(they are very powerful but slower to respond) particularly as Renewables proportion increases. RE has a rate of change of feed that needs to be met by rapid make up supply such as inefficient open cycle gas turbines, expensive batteries, synchronous line condensers etc. This means that an entire orchestra of machines responds to what used to be termed “load following “. When a cloud covers a suburb or industrial solar plant, or the wind backs off, the grid sees a sudden massive load, like never before . The imbalances seen with RE fluctuations are rapid and deep. When multiple machines respond that have inherent different response characteristics, conditions of “hunting “ can setup as fast response from synchronous condensers and batteries, (which have limited power to correct the conditions,) start to interfere with the ramp up of the slower but more powerful coal plant. This causes issues of fault-current differentiation throughout the grid. Designing a system to withstand this involves beefing everything up. It’s expensive in materials and complexity. Massive swings of power yo-yo-ing about the grid. Reneweconomy had the cheek to term it “the skinny grid”. Yes, the same grid that was gold plated just a few years ago. Heaven help us.

    Naval Officer Kristoffer Hans Petersen was ‘showing great respect’ to alleged groping victim

    A Sydney naval officer on trial for “motorboating” a woman’s breasts was “showing great respect” to his alleged victim by offering an apology afterwards, a court has heard.

    A SYDNEY naval officer on trial for “motorboating” a woman’s breasts was “showing great respect” to his alleged victim by offering an apology afterwards, a court has heard.

    At a Defence Force Magistrate’s Court trial in Canberra on Wednesday, Sub Lieutenant Kristoffer Hans Petersen’s defending officer, Lieutenant Commander Malcolm Gracie, said the apology was for making the woman upset, and was not an admission to him groping her sexually.

    Sub Lt Petersen has pleaded not guilty to a single count of committing an act of indecency without consent.

    “He’s acting with integrity and the proper respect (the woman deserved),” Lt Comm Gracie said.

    Lt Comm Gracie described the prosecution case as “all over the shop”, with differing accounts about whether the woman was “touched”, “poked” or “groped”.

    He said it was unclear whether Sub Lt Petersen had touched the woman on the “chest” or the “breast”.

    “In a physiological sense, a breast is that mammary gland on the left or right of the chest,” he said.

    Sub Lt Petersen’s case is that he poked the woman in the middle of the chest jokingly.

    The woman alleges Sub Lt Petersen put his hands down her cleavage and “aggressively rubbed” her chest area for about ten seconds.

    All right, all the ex – pussers on this blog, what are you horrible mob up to now? “Motorboating?”

    If the powers that be could cajole, or force, the premature shut down of one or more aluminium smelters, would that delay the inevitable crisis from declining base-load power supply? There was a bit of inconclusive discussion about this tiopic a day or so ago…
    I’m not an expert in this field but have been involved at the fringes in design and trouble shooting.
    I missed the discussion you mentioned. Large industrial users justified the economies of scale of the big coal plants. As the coal fleet atrophies under the RET, closing smelters is just a step along the way, especially aluminium.(aluminium refining was traditionally hydro, most of the big refiners own substantial hydro resources around the world and are picking up good rebates for the power while over production has depressed the price of aluminium for years now)

    The Pink Swastika (The Pink Swastika, 5th Edition)

    In 1995, we published the 1st Edition of The Pink Swastika to counter historical revisionism by the homosexual political movement which had been attempting since the 1970s to fabricate a “Gay Holocaust” equivalent to that suffered by the Joows in Nazi Germany. We succeeded in stopping that campaign, indirectly forcing the “gays” to abandon the pink triangle as the primary symbol of their movement. (They switched to the rainbow.) Intense public interest in our work, however, prompted us to publish subsequent expanded editions.

    Fifteen years have passed since we published the current 5th Edition, but our research into this topic has never stopped. With our file drawers now bursting with additional material, we have decided it is time to prepare a new edition of our book.

    This Special 5th Edition is designed to once-and-for-all silence the less-than-honest critics of our work by emphasizing the strength and trustworthiness of our documentation. Each book will also include a new section that highlights our sources.

    Due to the substantial volume of new material which we have added to this work, and the fact that we have not yet completed the revisions of the later chapters, we are publishing this edition as a series of books. This volume, Book One, The Homosexual Roots* of the Nazi Party, is a significantly expanded version of what was Chapter One in the 4th Edition. The forthcoming Book Two will combine expanded versions of Chapters Two and Three of the 4th Edition. The former Chapter Four will be published as Book Three, and so on.

    At the completion of this series we will re-publish all of the books of the 5th Edition plus bonus material in a final consolidated Hardbound Collector’s 6th Edition which will mark the end of what will then be a quarter century of research and writing on this topic.

    Nazi Germany and homosexuality

    Later when Adolf Hitler came into power, he chose to persecute homosexuals in order to advance his notions of racial struggle.[5] Yet at the same time, Hitler retained some sexual deviants in positions of power within the Nazi leadership. For example, Hermann Goering was known to dress in drag, paint his nails and put rouge on his cheeks. Another example is the case of Max Bielas who “had a harem of little J00wish boys. He liked them young, no older than seventeen. He had a kind of parody of the shepherds of Arcadia, their role was to take care of the camp flock of geese. They were dressed like little princes…Bielas had a little barracks built for them that looked like a doll’s house…Bielas sought in Treblinka only the satisfaction of his homosexual instincts (Steiner:117f).”[6]

    Homosexuality was supported in Nazi Germany, although modern gay rights activists claim that an estimated 100,000 homosexual men were arrested for this crime, of whom approximately 5,000 to 15,000 were interned in concentration camps.[7] See Homosexuals and the Holocaust for further details.

    Yet, according to some historians, homosexual men constituted the core of the Nazi Party in Germany.[8] In contrast to the wimpy “swish” homosexual, Nazi homosexuals were ultra-macho or “butch”.

    The OSS addressed the reason why so many homosexuals found the Nazi party inviting,

    “ this may be due to the fact that they are all fundamentally social outcasts and consequently have a community of interests which tends to make them think and feel more or less alike. In this connection it is interesting to note that homosexuals, too, frequently regard themselves as a special form of creation or as chosen ones whose destiny it is to initiate a new order….The fact that underneath they feel themselves to be different and ostracized from normal social contacts usually makes them easy converts to a new social philosophy which does not discriminate against them. Being among civilization’s discontents, they are always willing to take a chance of something new which holds any promise of improving their lot…[9]

  202. Top Ender

    I spent some time reading up on Adolf and his few ladies some years ago, Rex.

    It seemed as if he was mostly interested in power rather than sex. But didn’t seem to be homosexually inclined. More asexual than anything, but likely realised the visual importance of having worshipful girlfriends.

    Ernst Röhm was one of course, and the friendship between them led to rumours H was so inclined.

  203. Rex Mango

    Looking for evidence of homos producing the Nazis is like looking for comets producing the Younger Dryas and the extinction of mega fauna. Vested interests prevent this subject being discussed in a scientific manner.

  204. Rex Mango

    Yes Rex, I’d say Hitler wasn’t homosexually inclined.

    Hard to tell definitively through the mists of time; slanders from his enemies, and deliberate propaganda efforts from the Allies, but for some reason I got interested in his personal life after reading up on Eva Braun. It was casual reading rather than research though.

    It’s also the case that absence of evidence, isn’t evidence of absence either.

    Strange bloke in many ways, even in his early years. Probably driven by anger, which was fuelled by failure and rejection. Brave in WWI. In modern times the sort of man who would become a crazed lone gunman.

    Then again sex-wise it’s a fallacy to think all blokes are sex-mad males. Some are JFK frantic women-chasers; some apathetic, some sort of middle of the road. Wasn’t some of Masters and Johnston’s work related to trying to establish some sort of “normalcy” and discovered they couldn’t? Then Shere Hite came along and so on? Hitler was just not very interested in women.

    I dare you to do a comparative cost analysis on the War Service Loan you got versus what today’s scheme saves you.

    I can have a crack.
    The Benefits that accrued from service in South Vietnam were:
    a. Medal entitlement
    b. The war Services Home Scheme
    c. repatriation benefits
    d. Resettlement Benefits for ARA and NS Personnel
    e. Returned Services League Benefits.

    War Service Home loans were available to an applicant was married, about to marry, (1970 so this was to a woman) or had dependants for whom it was necessary to provide a home. Provided that the applicant or spouse didn’t already own a home, intended to use the home as his dwelling and the applicant had not been dishonourably discharged.

    The maximum value of the loan in 1970 was $8,000 with an interest rate of 3 ¾ pa flat. Maximum time for repayment was 45 years. Minimum deposit of 10% was required and a second mortgage allowed.

    Now to make practical sense of what that meant in terms that people might relate to today, I have had to fudge some data to make up for numbers I don’t have to hand. As a result the following will not be 100% accurate but will be close enough for Government work.

    In 1970 Average annual earnings were $4 108 today they are $84 989 Currently a Private soldier in the ADF earns 58% of average annual earnings. Using this proportion as a surrogate indicator for 1970 a Private would have earned around $2 382 per annum

    A National Serviceman if serving in Vietnam would pay no income tax on this amount and additionally would be paid an ‘Overseas living In allowance’ worth $565 pa and a $40.00 gratuity for each year served.
    The total earnings were $2 988.40 tax free which was equivalent to $3 400 taxable income. That’s about $70 341 in today’s money (Which most 21 year old’s would consider very decent coin.) The army of course provided food clothing and shelter. Saving a house deposit of $800 would not have been a difficult proposition.

    In 1970 the median price for a house in Sydney was $18 700. Today it is $815 000. If a keen young newly discharged Nasho wanted to buy a home in a regional city – say Toowoomba, he could expect to get a lot more for his “five figure windfall” of $8 000. The median Toowoomba house price today is $367 945 or 45% that of Sydney. If that also held true in 1970 the median Toowoomba house price would have been $8 494.00 Easily within reach of a War Service Home Loan applicant who had saved a few pennies.
    Total repayments at 3 ¾ percent flat over the maximum borrowing period would have amounted to $21 500 by 2016 and the repayment would have been fixed at $39.81 per month over the term of the loan.
    The last mortgage payment in 2016 would have been $9.19 per week. Which compares more than favourably with the cost of smashed avocado on toast at the Toowoomba Coffee Club which will set you back $15.50. The kids might have a point?

    Bottom line is that the war service loan created the opportunity to invest in an asset that compounded at 8-9% per annum.

    All the details of this comparatively generous scheme can be found on pages 185-190 of the Annex to the June 1970 7RAR Commanders diaries.

    It is true that people respond to incentives and the home loan scheme certainly was an incentive for some National Servicemen. I say some because I do not assume all National Servicemen shared the same attitudes and enthusiasm for that benefit. There was a range of attitudes.

    Just as there was a range of attitudes generally expressed about National Service. There were those that counted the days until their two years were up and others who were keen to extend their service.

    A good example of the latter can be found on page 71 of the Annex to the October 1970 7RAR Commanders diaries. It is a list of 30 men who applied that month to extend their period of service in Vietnam.

    You might expect these all to be crusty old regular army war dogs. (There certainly was one of those. He was Sergeant Ian Becker who remarkably served nearly continuously in Vietnam from 1967 to 1972. Going home occasionally for Christmas.) Of these 30 men, four were liable for National Service but had joined the Regular Army, Eight were balloted in National Servicemen and three were Volunteer National Servicemen.
    Half of those that chose to extend their active service past the obligatory 12 month tour of Vietnam were liable for National Service or National Service volunteers. Men who had already qualified for Medals, A generous War Service Housing loan and resettlement benefits.

    It is impossible to say what motivated these young men to vote with their feet in the way that they did. The invisible hand of the market and the prospect of tax free earnings as an incentive must have played at least a partial role.

    What it undoubtedly demonstrates is that there was a range of attitudes towards National Service.

    Artificial blood that is ‘better than the real thing’ made in lab by scientists

    Artificial blood that can be used by anyone regardless of their blood type and will increase the survival rate of patients has been created by scientists .

    Japanese researchers from the National Defense Medical College have revealed the blood which they created in a lab.

    The team boast it can be transfused into patients regardless of their blood.

    Scientists boasted their tests on rabbits have been successful, and it is hoped to be used on humans.

    It is also hoped medics will be able to use the artificial blood to help seriously injured people, and it will increase survival rates.

    Doctors will now no longer have to worry about limits on the amount of blood available from donors.

    Scientists claim their artificial blood can also be stored for a year at normal temperatures.

    Blood can normally be kept for only 20 days at chilled temperatures before it spoils.

    Loss of blood platelets that stop bleeding, and red blood cells that carry oxygen, will lead to death.

    Platelets can only be stored for four days and need to be shaken.

    rofessor Manabu Kinoshita said: “It is difficult to stock a sufficient amount of blood for transfusions in such regions as remote islands.

    “The artificial blood will be able to save the lives of people who otherwise could not be saved.”

    Scientists used the artificial blood on ten rabbits suffering from serious blood loss.

    Six of them managed to survive the tests, a ratio similar to rabbits treated with real blood.

    The Greens all originated from the German Green Party which was an offshoot of the World Union for the Protection of Life founded by Gunther Schwaab, a eugenicist and Nazi. At the founding of The Greens his speeches were quoted. Thus The Greens are the only political party to be founded by a Nazi on the words of a Nazi.

    Do remember to bring this up at the next dinner party you attend when someone proudly declares they voted for The Greens.

    Maybe Apple products are better used when everything else is Apple based. I’ve never had a issue switching a new phone. iTunes on a Mac basically does it all for you. It’s really easy on an Apple eco-system.

    By the way, Tim Cook is the closest thing, Trump has to a pal on Silicon Valley other than the other gay, German dude whose name I forget.

    The orange man, with a Silicon Valley gay following.. how funny.

    Hazmatic- like your logic on War Service Home loans (as I do all your posts). My father had such a loan after WW2. He qualified because he’d gone to experience the diversity and the multi-cultural wonders of New Guinea. That loan was good for Mum (especially), Dad and 4 children.

    Hazmatic, the war Services Home Scheme is very good argument. Investing in land at that time in Australia was a great investment. One that any thinking capitalist would appreciate.

    Zuckerberg is moving towards Trump these days.

    He must be shit scared by what he hears Warren and the Dems saying.
