    The bugman society – which we’re now enjoying in full bloom – is going swimmingly.

    The society they have created literally can’t even convince young women to have a baby in it.

    Indeed. Remember when IVF was in its early stages, the rationale was to help ‘desperate married couples’ that were having trouble conceiving naturally to have a baby. Now, it is unapologetically being used to allow women, single or married, to delay pregnancy further and further so they can pursue their ‘careers’ and on the public purse.

    I don’t quite see how IVF runs contrary to Stix’s points – that women aren’t having kids or enough of them. IVF actually does help women have kids and assists in canceling out in not being able to. Also, I don’t believe IVF is publicly funded. Is it?

    I remember back in about 2005, being dragged kicking and screaming into an argument about access to IVF for lesbians.
    I said I didn’t give a flying fuck.
    there were heated words
    doors were slammed.
    I still don’t care

    much ice (Note: add ice AFTER alcohol; you don’t want to water it down)

    Some modifications:
    -Tanqueray 10 or Four Pillars (no Bombay)
    -A drop of good vermouth per shot of gin
    -Store bottle of gin in freezer, you need less ice—> less dilution

    While monuments and building names said to be stained by racism are being erased across the country, one former Ku Klux Klan organizer remains virtually untouchable.

    The late Sen. Robert C. Byrd, the West Virginia Democrat and Senate majority leader who organized a Klan chapter in 1941 and filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is celebrated in the state, his name gracing over three dozen public works projects, including two federal courthouses, a dam on the Ohio border, libraries, community centers, roads, bridges, schools, and several university buildings throughout the state.

    I swear to god I feel like I went to sleep three months ago and woke up in the most bizarre fucking timeline.

    Is that what happened?
    Sounds about right. What is happening on this planet certainly isn’t like last year.
    1. Drunk starts waving his pistol around, points it at people in car park. Bloke who disarmed him is arrested and spends night in pokey because Fragile Copper Ego Syndrome.
    2. Couple has their property broken into by peaceniks and they are then disarmed, leaving their million dollar property undefended because DA is an anti gun cow. The state has a castle doctrine law that permits the gun toting homeowner the right to mow the frigging lot down. Time to invest in an MG42, buddy.
    3. Lunatic on bail goes on a rampage with a handgun gets his pistol returned the next day despite one of the bail conditions is ‘no firearms’. Delivered by a copper no less.
    4. Dim Bulb Dan gets even with the kid who shoved Dimwit Dans hot pie into his face in Kindy – shuts down Victoria. Bill Shorten demands to be allowed to do temperature testing at all future pie tantrums.
    Dimbulb remains unaware that the kid later won Powerball and moved to Texas, where he now runs a Masterclass in snorting coke from hookers breasts.
    5. Morrison from Marketing suddenly finds his mojo, cancels French sinking boat contract, orders 12 Virginia Class subs from Uncle Trump. Along with the deal comes a new Pacific Fleet with 2 new carriers. The first will be delivered next week – named HMAS Hello Kitty.

    A feminist colleague back in the late 1980s was adamant that ivf was always about middle class professionals who had delayed children til it was too late.

    Or more likely had decided no children until late thirties hormones made them feel desperate for a baby.

    No wonder the news media is held in such poor esteem by the public. This morning’s wire story from Agence France Presse:

    Donald Trump’s commutation of the prison sentence of longtime ally Roger Stone was a case of “unprecedented, historic corruption,” Senator Mitt Romney tweeted Saturday, making his a rare Republican voice raised in criticism of the president.

    … should read:

    Donald Trump’s commutation of the prison sentence of Republican fixer Roger Stone was a case of “unprecedented, historic corruption,” renegade senator Senator Mitt Romney tweeted Saturday, deepening White House’s feud with the failed 2012 presidential candidate who went to Washington to represent the GOP’s Never Trump spoilers.

    The evil is they know they are not accountable to us.
    They are our slave owners and will give and take freedoms as they so desire.
    But a freedom given is not a freedom.
    It’s no more than a permit as those given at our borders.
    When permission is required it is not a freedom.

    In a just world, the same process would have been initiated in the case of Iran Air flight 655.

    Really? I don’t recall you saying that about the former Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 shot down by the Iranians near Tehran Airport. Perhaps you just forgot that one because it didn’t fit your agenda.

    “The aircraft came close to a sensitive IRGC military center at an altitude and flight condition that resembled hostile targeting. Under these circumstances, the aircraft was unintentionally hit, which unfortunately resulted in death of the many Iranian and foreign nationals.”

    Sound familiar?

    You know, the one where the Iranians went nuts concealing the evidence and cleaning up the crash site so there was nothing for investigators to investigate? The one where the Iranians refused to let international investigators in until they had sanitized the impact site of everything but sand and rocks and refused to turn over the flight recorders… which are Ukrainian property?

    The one where the bloke who shot and posted the phone video of the plane being shot down was arrested by the Iranian authorities?

    The one where the Rouhani apologized to the Ukrainian people and promised to hold those responsible “accountable”… but never did?

    The one where Iranian intelligence agents forced families of the Iranian victims to give interviews on state TV, declaring their support for the Iranian government or else the government would not deliver the bodies of the victims?

    The one where no reparations were paid to the families of the dead? (Sorry, Trudeau announced Canada would pay C$25,000 to the relatives of each of the 57 Canadian citizens and permanent residents who were killed in the shoot-down for some bizarre reason.)

    The one the global mass media cooperated in sweeping under the rugs within a week? (Preferring instead to whine about Trump causing WWIII by catching the lead Iranian terror organizer in the act and killing him)

    Nah, the shooters weren’t American so no nothing to see here… right?

    Via CL and areff at Quadrant:

    Why Do So Many White Women Hate Themselves?

    No doubt you’ve all noticed that Black Lives Matter, Antifa, the Democratic Party and the lunatic left everywhere are all run by potty-mouthed ugly rich white chicks. They have left blokes with no option but to be equally obnoxious if they want their power back.

    Real men are sitting this power play out until the madness somehow passes.

    Wymmynses are learning a lot from the spectacle, too. In recent years, only 20% of Western wymmymses have been happy to call themselves feminists. In 2021, that figure will be about 5% as even fewer upwardly mobile chicks want to be known as arseholes (even if they are).

    Especially not an arsehole who’s also a childless harridan with no kids or grandkids.

    Kittehs could have shown them the shortcut to happiness but, like the Cat men, they’re too well bred to force their opinions on others.

    Leftism achieved its high water mark in the Western world about 2012. But the more people are force-led leftism, the faster they run away.

    Kung Flu has shown ordinary people around the world how incompetent politicians and their unelected public servants are.

    What’s also past its use-by date is incompetent loudmouth women politicians and bureaucrats being forced on the public in the name of equalidee.

    Meritocracy is getting ready for the mother of all comebacks.

    The BBC’s HardTalk program features Stephen Sackur questioning various people, one at a time, each week.
    This week he have a hard time to Israel’s soon to retire ambassador to the UN and former politician Danny Danon. Sackur got on his “international law” high horse about the proposal that Israel make official what is true on the ground, that their settlements on the west bank should be formally part of Israel, they assert sovereignty over some 30% of the west bank, often referred to as the occupied west bank by media types hostile to Israel.
    It doesn’t matter how many times it’s said, but the west bank was supposed to be part of Israel but was taken over by force by Jordan. Israel took it back in 1967. Bleating about this new move to “annexe” part of the west bank officially, saying it flies in the face of any possible two state solution, is also a poor reading of history.
    The Palestinians have refused to accept any deals re two states. They want just one, for themselves. No Israel at all.
    Jordan is as close as they are going to get toward a homeland. Given Gaza, they messed it up and used it to try and damage Israel. Syria mooched along for ages ruled by tough guys named Assad, which is arguably the only model that works in the ME , until it all fell apart. Again, not a promising model to point to in support of a Palestinian state. Palestine was a general name for the entire area south of Turkey and butting up against Mesopotamia, now Iraq.
    Israel scored some bits of the country historically associated with their antecedents. Given the many nations created in the 20th century, many of them not as viable or as democratic as Israel, it has all the hallmarks of a modern pogrom when the media aligns with the UN (now filled with the representatives of failed states and dictatorships) to harp on about international law versus Israel.
    The BBC should take a good hard look at its HardTalk program and realise that the modus operandi is to give a hard time to some (Hungary, Poland, Israel, USA conservatives) but a soft time to those they approve of.

    Tom, it’s interesting to look at early film of Chinese Communist takeover, and also Russian.
    They relied heavily on brainwashing women and in those films, uncharacteristic of the times, you can see the vicious females at the for in abusing the “non believers”.
    It’s actually quite mind blowing when you look at the public floggings and executions as to how many women will take an opportunity to be at the fore, screaming and sticking the boot into the dissenter.

    I know it is not all women, but to generalize, which to a certain degree we must to, we must look at statistical evidence on voting habits, the willingness to deal with and create pure insanity in the work place and so forth and come to the conclusion that enough is enough.
    I have a problem because I only have good women around me and the ones that weren’t are not welcome here so I have no real contact with them, and working in my private sector male dominated (because women don’t want to do it) industries I don’t have much of a chance to change things.
    But why do men in office blocks throughout the nation put up with the PC bullshit we know would not exist for a second if women were not there?
    Who puts up with this shit.
    Welcome to countries etc and the decrees to follow cultural marxist dogma from the men hating lesbians that are forced upon businesses in HR?

    The other day people asked what can we do, and the first thing we can do is to challenge the bullshit that flows from women or the beta males that are nothing more than the same wankers we used to call hen pecked.
    Right now we have in our nation , Marxists Mrs Buckets (bouquet please) trying to climb the marxist social ladder while we all act like her submissive Husband.
    We need to learn to say enough is enough, and we need to learn to say it fast.

    Rickw,
    About your tractor enquiry.
    Whilst it’s not the same thing, I know, but I run a JD 2305 for the around the house tasks…and a few bigger ones.
    The quick release FEL (200cx) is fantastic to allow it to become a mower, etc with minimal fuss.
    A great little machine that more than pulls it’s weight. Does surprising things for its size.
    You’d think the bucket was too big for it to lift, but the minute it’s lifting it, full of wet mud. Over engineered to buggery. The mid and rear mounted PTO can be handy to allow a mower deck and/or slasher.
    Great compact tractors. Highly recommended.

  67. Good morning all.

  70. Struth

    The author of your article asks why so many western women hate themselves.
    She of course is an ethnic background woman herself.
    If the women in this world with the free-est lives, the best equality and now owning most of the power of the place, and have been given all of this by white men, yet are miserable, you have to ask yourself if they really want it.
    Of course you then find the section of the community that allowed them to have all this is the only demographic they hate, ……white men.
    I think you could easily come to the conclusion they are trying to tell us something.
    Never listen too much to what they say, we should know better.
    We take on board what they say, but ultimately we make the decisions.

    Women are security and safety seeking nest builders, whether they think they are or not.
    It’s got nothing to do with brains, but hard core emotional wiring that will overcome rational thought if it must.
    They will take security over freedom and they expect men to provide the feeling of security.
    Not provided they turn to the government, and then on the civilisation itself.
    However since the 1960’s due to cultural marxism’s Frankfurt school attack from that point on, they have been winning so called rights that have only been pushed by the left wing few, and that many women didn’t want.
    Women, and to some extent men have been brainwashed by this rubbish for 60 years, to the point that we now arrive at and which was always the goal.
    Women are not happy and we men, and right wingers are especially at fault, as we stood lazily and irresponsibly aside while the natural order of the world was attacked.

    Question is, these white men hating marxists are in our schools and via many methods have used every available tool to kill white testosterone.
    It, as they tell us is an evil.
    That evil is what they are crying out for, and they will wreck a civilisation and willingly put a black sheet over their heads to be under the safety and security of strong men.
    They are now in the process of doing just that.
    A civilisation that doesn’t say no to it’s women on certain issues can expect those women to call the deal off.
    We do not deserve their respect at the moment.
    And we will perish because we have let them down.
    Giving your children everything they want is never a good idea and makes them spoilt brats who do not respect you.
    This is no different.

    And it’s sinister and it’s planned.

    No one can tell me the amount of free porn on the internet isn’t designed to drain the spuds of our young men to basically turn them into compliant lethargic wankers.

    Get rid of that and we might also start to get somewhere.
    Make them pay at least.
    Us old blokes have been told , and without a hint of embarrassment by those telling us, that if they do go out at night, they purposely have a pull before they go out to keep their brains about them because the girls are just scum and useless in their view.

    Now old Struth here will never admit to “feeding the chooks” (do the hand movement) , or having a date with Mrs Palmer and her five daughters, and I won’t deny it either.
    I could have (or not) done the same thing before I went out on a Saturday night, but that warning shot would have been fired for a totally different reason.
    To enhance performance later on, not to avoid the performance altogether.

    These young blokes really don’t need women as they have long since stop believing choking the chook will make them go blind, and the girls, as I can see are, truly not worth it, and useless for a young man, they offer nothing but trouble.

    Earlier Struth:

    ‘But why do men in office blocks throughout the nation put up with the PC bullshit we know would not exist for a second if women were not there?’

    The great spirit animal Ron Swanson:

    ‘In my department I’m quite often surrounded by women, and that includes the men.’

    In my view, the most disturbing consequence of flooding of women in pseudo-management roles is that it’s allowed the beta males (who would otherwise be thrown out onto the street with their hair in a mess) to join the ladeeee crowd.

    And, as we all know and had often been described here in this august journal of record, once you get a team of ladeees together in the same room with the one notional goal, it descends into a contest of fashion, cliques and who can overtly demonstrate the most recent trend and/or fad. Who’s ‘on trend’, if you will.

    The notional goal is thrown out the window and it becomes about individual personalities. Homos are okay I suppose but ask yourself this – why do they always attempt to befriend as many chicks as they can?

    Because it’s mutually beneficial to everyone’s ego, that why. Ahem – digressing.

    When you have an organisation chocked to the gills with chicks and betas, common sense is burned at the stake and the entire enterprise becomes a superficial yet all-consuming episode of Australian Ninja where the contestants jump through, climb over and leap across obstacles comprised of normal behaviour, after which they get to pose for photos with their makeup retouched.

    The original position was to slow the spread so hospitals wouldn’t be overwhelmed, Somewhere along the way they changed it to eradication, without explaining why and when the change took place. Eradication, if successful had its own costs in regard to isolating ourselves from the world. Now that Dear Great Loving leader Dan has ruined the prospect of eradication we need to go back to ‘flattening the curve’ and ride it out.

    A feminist colleague back in the late 1980s was adamant that ivf was always about middle class professionals who had delayed children til it was too late.

    Or more likely had decided no children until late thirties hormones made them feel desperate for a baby.

    I seem to remember that it was ostensibly as a way to get around blocked Fallopian tubes usually rendered that way by gonorrhoea infections. But yes, as time went on it was more about career women wanting it all but not yet.

    Some of the time it’s the husband’s sperm lack of motility and in those cases a lot of the time the couple decides not to proceed and adopt instead so that they are equally related to the child. I know such a couple.

    Excellent posts at 8.09, 8.38 and 9am, Struth.

    If you step back from the insanity the political left is trying to force on the world, it seems to me the left (the dark heart of humanity) are actually rerunning the behaviour of Hitler’s Germany of the 1930s and 1940s, using the brainwashing of the education system and the media to try to get people in the democratic West to accept a primitive modern version of fascism.

    The problem is that, every three or four years, people get to vote on it.

    The left have run through every trick in the book to deceive people about what they’re doing. The past three months in America has laid bare the agenda: there’s nothing left but the abolition of freedom and violent revolution – at the same time as the pacifist left professes horror about and fear of guns.

    The foundation of the left’s campaign to destroy the West is that people are stupid and can’t see what they’re up to. They aren’t and they can.

    Sunday Telegraph’s story

    Aussie taxpayers forked out thousands of dollars to fly politicians and their partners to Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade.

    An analysis of the latest expenses data by the Sunday Herald Sun revealed Labor and Greens MPs billed taxpayers for flights, accommodation and chauffeur-driven cars.

    Weeks after he was elected to replaced Richard Di Natale as the new leader of the federal Greens, Victorian MP Adam Bandt charged taxpayers almost $3000 in flights for him and his wife to travel from Melbourne to Sydney for the parade.

    Mr Bandt and wife Claudia Perkins did not claim accommodation costs but billed taxpayers for an $80 chauffer-driven trip in Sydney.

    Mr Bandt justified the trip by claiming his attendance was as genuine a use of taxpayer money as the Prime Minister attending an Anzac Day service and billing it to taxpayers.

    Mr Bandt’s colleague, Adelaide-based senator Sarah Hanson-Young, billed the public more than $1300 for her two-night stay in Sydney, which included an $830 hotel bill.

    Taxpayers also picked up the $290 airfares from Canberra, and a $126 bill for a chauffeur-driven car in Sydney.

    Science Party 1.12% (+1.12%)
    HEMP 2.27% (+2.27%)

    So the Greens went down 3.14% and the SP and HEMP went up 3.39%. I’d say it’s pretty obvious.

    The SP renewables policy should be on their website, although I haven’t checked it since the Federal Election. They want to export renewable energy to the region. Which is financially mad.

    This article critical of Trump’s handling of the shit-hole of iran and the chunk involvement misses the point: it says:

    You can almost hear MBS’ sobs from here. Because there is no way the Saudis can compete with this. This is a strategic move by Iran to ensure that

    Iran has guaranteed oil exports despite U.S. sanctions

    The Iranian economy de-dollarizes faster

    Iran and Iraq, by extension, integrate into China’s One Belt, One Road project.

    Saudi Arabia’s position as the leader of the Arab oil-producing world is destroyed.

    Iran’s ability to withstand U.S. sanctions pressure rises dramatically

    This also dovetails with China’s eschewing Saudi oil for Russian Urals grade. At the same time China is working on putting a buyer’s group together to further marginalize Saudi oil pricing policy of setting tenders on a monthly basis.

    Moreover, China wants its oil futures contract in Shanghai more dominant in the global market. That contract is a key piece to deepening Yuan liquidity.

    Shifting the oil trade where it can trade in real time versus would be a boon to the market. Most of the Arab states set their tender prices at the beginning of the month and they don’t change.

    The US is now energy independent, and will stay that way unless Trump loses. By pissing off and turning the screws on the mullahs Trump has invited the chunks to come in and be mired in this mess, which they have done. As for the chunks getting their oil off Putin, that is a day by day issue. China now has to work the tight-rope, not the US.

    Reuters notes in its report from Dubai last night regarding an explosion in western Tehran today: “There have been several explosions around Iranian military, nuclear and industrial facilities since late June.” Jerusalem Post intelligence correspondent Yonah Jeremy Bob has filed the intensely interesting column “How have Iran’s intelligence forces broken down in face of explosions?” Subhead: “What the world is witnessing right now is someone hitting Iranian nuclear and conventional weapons and IRGC facilities practically at will.” Debkafile has more in its characteristically speculative July 5 report.

    Arky, you one-eyed bastard … get better soon.

    Never seen a black Kooka.
    Your little visitor has to mount dawn raids to get the mince by the looks of things.

    Also what happened to Arky? Did he finally tug the end off it and smack himself in the eye?

  173. Benalla for a packit of fags.
    Up the Hume for a little, then C381 to the river.

  174. A positive result for one Scot in Vietnam.

    A British pilot who spent more than two months on life support in Vietnam after contracting Covid-19 is on his way home, astounding doctors who gave him a 10% chance of survival.

    Stephen Cameron, 42, was the sickest patient medics have treated during the coronavirus outbreak in the country, which has recorded no official deaths, following a fast and proactive response to the pandemic.

  175. Ed Case

    So the Greens went down 3.14% and the SP and HEMP went up 3.39%. I’d say it’s pretty obvious.

    Perhaps.
    Are the Greens a drug reform Party? Not from their policies.
    Redistribution should have increased the ALP primary vote, but it declined.
    My opinion: Greens tend to be the best educated voters, not sure they’d be throwing their vote away in large numbers on the HEMP and Science Party gobbledegook, more likely to have given up on the Greens and
    returned to Liberal or the ALP.

  176. Bruce of Newcastle

    Betcha the Vietnamese use HCQ.
    They aren’t idiots like the western Left.

  177. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘recorded no official deaths’

    Because they only recorded deaths OF C19, rather than anyone who died of other stuff and who happened to have it.

    Or people killed by respirators. Or people herded into nursing homes dripping with it.

  178. Gab

    Get better quickly, Arky.

    In the meantime, wear a black path over your bung eye, whack a plastic parrot on your shoulder and say ”Arrrghh, me hearties” often.

  179. Bruce of Newcastle

    Greens tend to be the best educated voters

    Haha. If they were educated they (a) wouldn’t be climate bedwetters and (b) wouldn’t be Marxist.
    I’ll see their edumacations and raise them a PhD in chemistry and more than 30 years in R&D.

    Melbourne – 12
    Sydney – 14
    Adelaide – 15
    Perth – 15

    Darwin – 31

    Another sunny day at the crikkit awaits.

    I just want to tell you good luck; we’re all counting on you.

    Men who ‘self-identify’ as female are being allowed to work for rape crisis centres, to the fury of women’s rights campaigners.

    Helplines across England are advertising for transgender volunteers to provide counselling and advice for victims of sex abuse, even if they are not legally or physically female.

    Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre wrote on social media: ‘We are looking for self-identifying women to join our amazing helpline and email support volunteer team.’

    They might have lots of credentials on paper, but that is not the same as being the “best educated”.

    She does support an open borders platform, which doesn’t work unless there is a lot more local autonomy for cities and states to control who is allowed residence.

    She’s right on most of the other stuff, smaller government in general will sort itself out. Given that the Libertarian Party is unlikely to get many votes, this is mostly about getting the idea of small government out there, because right now there simply are not many people thinking along those lines.

    I’m writing this to the Outsiders.

    How slow on the uptake are you guys?

    Do you realise that many people do not watch you for the week old information you provide but to see how far along the information trail you have crawled, and what you are willing to say on National TV?
    To hope and pray that you openly say what the people are needing someone to say , urgently.
    As conservatives we guess you are at least partly beholden to the traitorous Liberal party , not as much as Credlin maybe, (who is making a fool of herself in doing so), and in so being, goes someway toward you being unable to come to a logical conclusion, when the evidence is staring you in the face. I guess it might come from a knowledge that it would also reflect badly on the Liberal party if you did.
    As it should.
    How does it feel to know much of your conservative audience seem to be well ahead of you regards the covid scamdemic, and watching you guys crawl toward a conclusion week after week is getting frustrating?

    Unfortunately, you panicked when this first started and supported the lock down.
    You never let a government take the healthy lawful citizen’s freedom, for any reason.
    None.
    But you did.
    You supported the tyranny we now live under.
    With that in mind you are now unable to, or unwilling to, come to the obvious conclusion , that this is not a mismanagement crisis but more correctly a manufactured crisis.

    You may scoff but you will eventually come to the conclusion you so painfully want to avoid.
    This Sunday watching Panahi struggle with this as it starts to sink in was embarrassing.
    You preach high minded ideals, but do you actually live by them Rowan?
    Your producers might be gutless wonders and you may be pushing as far as you can go with them, however, you are the highest rating show on Sky and that’s got to give you some leverage, surely.

    To agree at the very start of this major left wing TDS , UN WHO/China (event201) orchestrated attack on the west, to allow government to take our freedoms and again, agree with it, shows you do not live by the values you espouse.
    And so now you must argue without clarity or moral authority.
    For example, how can you now argue about the clear breeches of the constitution when you supported it?
    Did your producers force you to support tyranny?
    Pride then stops you from joining the dots and seeing the truth staring you in the face.

    Drop the arse covering and get on with journalism.
    Speak the real truth you expect us to tune in for every week.
    We are not fools, you lecture us to stand up and not tolerate the left, to stand firm for western Christian values. About time you got told to live by your own words.
    I am not scared of standing up, indeed I’ll go on your show anytime and would love to have for one segment the opportunity you have every week.
    Try me out.

  193. Megan

    I give it two weeks before regional Vic follows metro into Stage 3.

    And NSW the week after that.

    There’s a big difference between people who have hands-on experience with their skills vs people who are primarily verbal not physical. The thing about climate is that you can’t see it, can’t touch it, and it only exists as lines on a chart. Anything like a real temperature always becomes, “Oh that’s weather, don’t you know the difference between weather and climate?” Yeah, the difference is that weather is real, and right there in front of you … while climate is a statistical artefact.

    Computer people are kind of strung between the two worlds … it is hands-on in as much as from a programming perspective your code either works or doesn’t work … but also you can program a computer to give any bunch of results you like, and there’s a bit of a risk that if you see a pretty graphical output that seems like it’s more real, even if it ain’t.

    Good one TG. What sorta vehicle is deplorable?

  196. miltonf

    Yes in Australia we have education and edjucashun.

  197. Ed Case

    They might have lots of credentials on paper, but that is not the same as being the “best educated”.

    That’s right.
    My point is that they saw where things were headed and got on the [wrong] bandwagon.
    As Howard predicted, significant numbers have woken up that the Party is run for the benefit of
    The Few, and the Green Agenda was always going to be implemented by the Liberals and ALP anyway.

  198. JC

    My opinion: Greens tend to be the best educated voters

    Maybe as far as qualifications go. Not one iota of common sense between the lot of them. None of them can handle facts.

    I’m not sure education reduces the ability to commit or harbor evil intentions and lets face it, Green supporters in this country would rank as the most evil intentioned.

    I put up a link just yesterday with a researcher suggesting that doctors as a profession were the most eager supporters of the Nazis of any occupation. Those people weren’t stupid. They were just fucking evil.

  199. Cassie of Sydney

    “Men who ‘self-identify’ as female are being allowed to work for rape crisis centres”

    Peak stupidity…peak insanity. What a perfect environment for men with sexual fetishes to prey on vulnerable women…..because that is what this “self-identification” and trans movement is…it’s a sexual fetish. So we now have a situation where a man who still has a penis and may even have a beard but who “identifies” as a woman, whatever that means, can now go and work in an environment which is supposed to provide a safe haven and space for vulnerable women and children.

    Oh and wait for the reports of violence…and watch the MSN cover that up.

    The rape crisis centre in Vancouver lost its funding because it refused to allow men who “identify” as women work there.

  200. Knuckle Dragger

    Seen on a Cambridge noticeboard:

    ‘Wanted: Struggling beauty therapists needed to wax hairy womwn’s balls.’

  201. Ed Case

    “Men who ‘self-identify’ as female are being allowed to work for rape crisis centres”

    Sounds loony, however, if trannies are showing up as victims then it makes a lot of sense.
    It just sounds that the, er, type of women who staff these centres don’t seem likely to be able to empathise with transsexual victims.

    Ocasio-Cortez Says Defunding The Police Will Require ‘Experimentation’ With Public Safety

    https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/10/ocasio-cortez-defund-police-experimentation/

    Witness the carnage, violence and destruction already present for years in Demorat cities it’s pretty clear the Dems have no concept of what failure looks like.

    Great piece Struth….as for Outsiders, I do think they are doing their best. You need to remember that they have advertisers to worry about. Sleeping Midgets watches Outsiders every week (and other Sky programmes) to look for any kind of slip up…remember what happened to Ross Cameron. Midgets will look for anything that will give them ammunition to target Outsiders’ advertisers…so we need to cut Rowan, Rita and James some slack. I think they do very well given the circumstances.

  207. Bruce of Newcastle

    Min – I had a fine time this morning. I’ve a nest box in the tree in the front yard, which has been used to effect in the past.

    So this morning a couple of wood ducks arrived. I heard them calling so I watched out the front window from behind the curtains. Mr Wood Duck thought it looked like prime real estate, so he went inside. Then Mrs Wood Duck did also – just enough room in the box to fit two full-sized wood ducks, with squeezing. She thought ‘um, maybe’ and went and sat on a branch while he enthused to her.

    Then the indian mynahs spotted the wood ducks in THEIR nest box. Much fun. Indian mynahs hovering in fury and swooping around, like gun boats harrassing battleships. Which then sent the rest of the locals off – several noisy miners got excited, and then a currawong swooped in and had a go at the male wood duck in the nest box entrance. Currawongs love a riot.

    The wood ducks weren’t fazed by this greatly, but after a while left. They tend not to like this sort of excitement so I doubt they’ll seriously challenge the mynahs for the nest box. Which would be a shame as I’d love a bunch of ducklings to be hatched in my front yard.

  208. Struth

    288 Covid for Vic this morning.

    Covid what?

    let me guess, 288 more people who have caught such a mild cold they didn’t even know they were sick?

    Who gives a fuck?

    Last year we didn’t test the population for colds and flus, why this year?

  209. Ed Case

    I put up a link just yesterday with a researcher suggesting that doctors as a profession were the most eager supporters of the Nazis of any occupation.

    Yeah, it’s the same thing.
    Well informed, ethically challenged, people get on board early and disembark early, without missing a beat.
    Mad Judge Friesler wrote Law that survives in Germany to this day, so there’s no guarantee he wouldn’t have prospered in the Post War era.

    It is only one point but it is the main point that is rooting them now.
    As stated, they supported the FORCED imprisonment of the population.
    It’s a big stuff up, a very big stuff up, and it goes against all they preach.
    Even the outsiders need some critical analysis from time to time.
    Who are we kidding anyway, do you think it will even be read?

    Latho belled the cat a few weeks back when Glad Bags introduced a bill to ban all plastic bags in NSW. I reckon the fix is in & deals have been done with Colesworths the Gov won’t step in when Colesworths rip off customers by charging them for paper bags.

    The paper bags, half the size of the plastic ones currently used have made an appearance in the Hunter. Woolworths gouging 20c per bag. Glad Bags I reckon will be toast at the next poll.

    Thinking clearly is imperative during these strange times of being flooded with BS we find ourselves in.
    I’m hoping that being more right wing than left, the Outsiders have the ability to critically look at themselves.

  215. Farmer Gez

    Any chance ScoMo and his team will look at legislation to stop Sleeping Midgets and their ilk from blackmailing individual businesses.

    It’s not against the law but it should be. Big fines for people who organise and target businesses because of political and personal grievance.

    Farmers got legislation passed to stop trespass by animal activists when socialist judges kept supporting their activities by giving out community correction orders or paltry fines.

    Those fearful that Donald the Great might go down in November should take heart from the Louisiana primary result.

    While the Democrat candidates on the ballot recorded a combined total of 194,211 votes, 155,877 going to Joe the Perve, Trump bagged 180,108 votes for himself alone.

    The numbers are changing as the count continues. It can be followed at the NYT scoreboard here.

    The only thing that can stop Trump’s re-election is fraud. There’ll be lots of that.
