    Or we could just not change the law to allow hypersexualised fetishists to don a wig and be given top-tier state protection to follow 12 year old girls into girls change rooms at the local pool.

    But not having their God-State intervene to suspend observable reality (men are definitionally not women) is never on the cards for godless open borders libertarians.

    The bears are beginning to assemble at Brooks Falls, Alaska. Four in pole position at the cascade and strictly maintaining social distancing. Others downstream, including a youngster who is all smash and grab with no dividends. A few suicidal salmon have been ensnared. Anyone going to the site should be advised that free range WILD BEARS may make you feel unsafe. The sight of fish being flayed alive may cause distress to some viewers. Caution is advised.

    I’m not very happy with this betting thingy; I finally placed my bet on Trump’s EC total and Sportsbet would only let me bet $25.

    Does this happen with all betting, or is it because it’s politics, or maybe because of the odds they’re offering? Is this to suck people into betting? Well it’s not gonna work!

  11. You could twostix but what about a female to male transition person. We go back to saying they can do what they want but they were born female. They have authentic looking clobber, does a mother of primary aged girls want to see that after they have been for a swim?

    I don’t even think the wokiest virtue signaller really would, regardless of anything they say.

    There’s a practical side to this regardless of politics, or that exists after the decisions have been made.

  12. It seems old mate & his pistol-totin’ missus in St Louis are …. personal injury lawyers.
    (as if anybody couldn’t guess from the garish house they’re living in, it’s Downtown Abbey on a quarter acre of CBD fringe)

    Just show you should never say never.
    Coz here I am siding with a personal injury lawyer – someone I’d normally say should be tied up like a pig on a spit & then treated most medievally with the oxy-acetylene gear.

    Speaking of betting, what odds can I get on The Great Financial Meltdown Of The 21st Century occurring at the end of August, or the beginning of September? Specifically, Thursday or Friday 27 and 28 August, or Thursday or Friday 3rd and 4th of September?

    Ms Franks said her daughter belonged to the Plains Clans of the Wonnarua People.

    It’s alleged the teacher made comments about Indigenous Australians living in state housing and taking money from the government.

    She said the four Indigenous students were upset and left the classroom.

    “Then the teacher’s turned around and said the best thing to happen to Aboriginal people is the European colonisation
    ,” Ms Franks said.

    “My beautiful, brave 14-year-old daughter stopped at the door of the classroom … and said, ‘what you’re saying is wrong, you have no idea what it’s like to be Aboriginal, you’ve got no right to say what you’re saying’.

    “To which the teacher smiled in my daughter’s face and replied: ‘Look how white you are, no one is even going to know you’re Aboriginal’.”

    Wow.

    Mind you, it did cost the Marybrook manse a good slice of the catering budget to get the gents to that stage, and aforesaid whisky will go a log way to spending the winnings. But they are a bunch of blokes I’ve got to know well over the last few years of our kids being at school together, I wouldn’t have proposed it otherwise- I’ve been kicked under the table a fair bit since November 2015.
    But, it’s the true field of wagering, between equals, and with the right of reply and – or – rematch always possible. I’ve pulled away from registering for online betting.. I reckon i’d get obsessed trying to find the outlier “markets” for events I’d love to see vindicated by a cash windfall.

    I could use a little help with a personal problem.
    Our lovely daughter is a motorcyclist. The wise mother has proposed we get her a car – to get her off the bike. We like her a lot.

    What is a good car that is not costly but a bit of a sports car to drive? I am very worried by the MX-5 because of the correlation with being a complete wally on a male menopause spending spree.
    I love the look of old BMW 3-series sedans but I can’t help expecting that the motor, gearbox and power steering will sequentially shit themselves after 120,000km and cost the GNP of South Africa to repair.

  43. Knuckle Dragger

    LS,

    There’s an anti-Yank blog on the subject. Consists of a Mark Twain quote, and the last post is more crying on the floor from 9 June.

    There are seven comments, of which three are from the author, and he still got owned. On his own blog.

    The embarrassment is strong with this one.

  44. Mater

    Did anyone here serve in Vietnam? What was it like? Are there any books on the subject I can read?

    Yeah.
    Bob regularly recommends this one. The author served with him.

    “Contact – Wait Out: A Vietnam Diary” by Bruce Ravenscroft

    Page 21 is interesting.

    “There’s women from the Save Our Sons movement too, protesting from ignorance. Like many others, they obviously believe Nashos are being forced to fight against their will but this is not the case. I can’t speak for other Corps, but in Infantry no one who is not willing is sent to the front line. We think too much of our own skin and the hesitation of someone who’s not properly prepared and willing to be there can cost us our lives.

    Victoria has more cases because it’s cold and wet; has more high-density living for families; an over-reliance on public transport; and this bizarre idea that because they like to sit down on their backsides and watch sport that they are very active.

    Resurfaced videos from a 2004 documentary appear to prove that Chris Lilley’s Summer Heights High character Jonah Takalua was based on a real-life student. Filipe Mahe, now 33, was filmed as part of an ABC documentary titled ‘Our Boys’ which followed disadvantaged students at Canterbury Boys High in Western Sydney in 2004. After the series aired Lilley came to Mr Mahe’s school, observed classes and lunchtime in the playground and watched a Tongan dance.

    The main concern for Wall Street if Trump doesn’t win reelection is the likelihood of higher corporate taxes: In December 2019, Biden pledged to roll back Trump’s signature tax cut legislation, which massively boosted corporate profits.
    ..

    While often expressing more moderate views in public, many wealthy executives and investors privately supported Trump for his tax cuts and deregulation efforts; As some now prepare for a Biden presidency, it’s a noticeable change of tone for Wall Street.

    I knew a real teacher, ie not like the troll, who taught in the Hunter Valley in the 1980’s and had to tell kids not to bring their .22s into the classroom. When I was at school the cadets had 303s.

    Kids should be taught about guns; and private citizens should be allowed to have them for protection if they do not have a criminal record and pass a safety test.

    Things like the troll do no want law abiding citizens to have guns because they are misanthropes and as an elitist (in what passes for its mind) it does not want any independence in the community to communist rule.

    Resurfaced videos from a 2004 documentary appear to prove that Chris Lilley’s Summer Heights High character Jonah Takalua was based on a real-life student. Filipe Mahe, now 33, … Tongan …”

    has scented money, a good bit of money, with maybe a whole ten or twenty thousand for him after the solicitors deduct their fees – and the publicists, who have successfully placed pieces in several media vehicles today, pleading his victimery. Any amount is a lot to a sit down money culture.

    ‘Seriously WTF is going on in the AFL?’

    Question of the year. Alistair Clarkson said last night the spectacle of the game has turned to shit, and he’s bang on.

    Grounds flooded-out with players. 40 of them following the pill around like you used to see in the Minis. Skill level – deplorable. Perfect footballing conditions, and apparently two of the best teams going around can manage four goals between them in 40 minutes. Crowds – zero. Probability of same crowds without C19 – excellent.

    I couldn’t even watch the Pies game on the weekend. There was just nothing about it worth looking at.

    For the first time in well over 40 years I have no interest in who’s playing who, who’s injured, what the coaches said, who’s where on the ladder and I certainly don’t give a flying fuck about potential finals teams because I won’t be watching it.

    It’s not football. It’s keepings-off with umpires and it’s fucking heartbreaking.

    There are comparatively very few female to male,

    Here’s one (used to be a lesbian)

    Eddie Ayres

    Eddie Ayres (born 1967), named Emma Ayres at birth, is a musician, music teacher and radio presenter. He is notable for his work on the Australian ABC Classic FM radio station, as well as for his numerous charitable efforts.

    Gender transition[edit]
    In 2016, in an interview with freelance journalist Danielle Moylan published in the Sydney Morning Herald, Ayres came out as a transgender man. He said that he had first realised he was a man during a cycling trip in Pakistan in 2013 in a “total beam of light” moment one evening while watching the film Boys Don’t Cry. He said, “I’ve waited a long time to do this. I suppressed this for so long, now I feel I can’t wait.”[18] Ayres had written about gender several times in his 2014 memoir, Cadence: Travels with music – a memoir, narrating his experiences of being thought of as a man during his bicycle travels in countries such as Pakistan.[5]

    No fair you can post it and I can’t!

    But thanks, Cassie.

    family Eid celebration could create a new wave of anti-Isla mic sentiment and members of the community blaming Mueslis

    Good heavens, why would anyone blame those who caused a problem for causing the problem? If in doubt, play the good old waaacisssm or whateverphobia card. The media will never challenge either.

    From Knuckle Dragger at 8:34 pm:

    ” ‘Seriously WTF is going on in the AFL?’

    Skill level – deplorable. Perfect footballing conditions, and apparently two of the best teams going around can manage four goals between them in 40 minutes. Crowds – zero. Probability of same crowds without C19 – excellent …”

    The wymminses will rescue the sport, the AWFL. Gillon McLachlan built it and people will come, Knuckles. They’ll come to the MCG for reasons they can’t even fathom.

    They’ll arrive … as innocent as children, longing for the past. They’ll pass over the money without even thinking about it … they’ll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon … along one of the boundary lines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they’ll watch the game and it’ll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Knuckles.

    To marvel at the girlses – big brawny girls 6’6″ tall and 110 kilograms, with penises and hoarse voices, who stare at the other girlses in the showers, tugging furiously, losing a layer of skin each Saturday.

    Oh…people will come Knuckles. People will most definitely come.

    Gun shops still closed in Victoria by despot dan’s decree.

    Apparently the slimy POS also lied about it being a national cabinet decision:

  207. Mark A

    Something soothing.
    Stich’em up!

  208. rickw

    Apparently gun sales are through the roof. Dave Rubin posted a youtube clip the other day where he talks about how he bought himself a birthday present….a gun….his first ever.

    If gun shops in Australia manage to not go bust due to the forced closure. They’re in for a hell of a post ban sales boom, our treacherous politicians will crap themselves with the $’s dropped and the new license application #’s.

    There are comparatively very few female to male

    Two in my family, ex-nieces.
    Both of them gormless and chunky 1 out of 10s.
    Very vulnerable to the vibe, poor kids.
    I’m on good terms with one, she-now-he is nice, the other I haven’t met.
    The Left preys on the vulnerable. I’m not happy about it.

  210. I can outdo you anytime, Gab.

    Anything you can do I can do better.

    I once pwned a Vietnam veteran.

    Poorly made arguments that fall apart all the time.

  211. Infidel Tiger King

    I read that there a 2.5million new gun owners in America.

    That has to be a positive for Trump.

    No doubt Javanka will encourage him to abuse them before the election.

  212. Cassie of Sydney

    “The Left preys on the vulnerable. “

    Yes.

  213. Good lord Michael de la Cote d’Or, that was ribald and I didn’t see it…coming.

    Rats leaving the ships they helped sink:

  215. Bar Beach SwimmerHmm

    Yep. Looks like rugby rolling maul till the ball breaks free and everybody starts running away like basketball

    Hey Nick, as there are people here who are in agreement with me on the footy, I’ll have to inform the other half he can no longer call me Mrs Football 😁!

  216. Knuckle Dragger

    Yeah, I sort of get it Mick.

    And I know every season there’s crowds of muppets over the players’ race pegging membership cards at their pissweak team as they walk off after copping another hiding, and all that.

    If anything, C19 (snort) has had the unintended consequence of making a ton of realise what sort of shitfest the game’s turned into. Watch the post-game shows and the analysis show by ex-player experts. They’re frantically trying to pump some air back into the game’s busted arse because they have contracts they’d like not to have slashed or binned.

    Watching the execrable performances this year has in all seriousness reminded me of the 20 minutes I forced myself to watch an AFLVagina game a year or so ago.

    Unsustainable. Unsurvivable, in its current form at least and/or until they stop recruiting sleeve-tatted poncy boys with more hair product than testosterone and start bring back actual footballers.

    No doubt Javanka will encourage him to abuse them before the election.

    There would be pretty good recent event arguments for getting rid of 30 round mag bans, reversing the bump stock ban and getting the ATF to STFU on their arm brace “project”, but it isn’t going to happen…

    There’s a pretty argument for scrapping the ATF. If you dismantle it then liberals have one less toy to annoy the shit out of everyone else with.

    Yes; exactly like six year olds at Auskick.

    Boring.

    Mick, that was a great Field of Dreams monologue.
    Well done. Your memory serves you well.
    Very impressed…unless you cheated! 😉

    I owned an MX5 once – and then I woke up!

  223. Bruce of Newcastle

    Can’t use a MX-5 as an aircraft carrier.
    That’s all I can say about it.

  224. notafan

    No suggestion that there has been major surgery.

    Fascinating…

    Q&A:

  226. Infidel Tiger King

    COVID-19 is the about the best thing you could catch a pride parade.

  227. C.L.

    There’s a pretty argument for scrapping the ATF.

    Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms should be the same of a store, as Glenn Reynolds has always said.

    Nice black culture you have there

    Chicago man killed 2 teens after they asked how tall he was, police say

    They noted how tall he was while buying candy at a convenience store in the city
