    Maybe the Republicans could try appealing to people other than old white men and their enablers.

    Further on the BAT FLU outbreak next door to me .. seems they have had positive cases over the past week and NOT a word said to anyone around here, that I’m aware of .. I do all my grocery shopping there on a daily basis and a text about the newspaper report from one of my daughter’s this morning is the first I’ve heard ..
    Let’s remember .. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER doesn’t seem to apply to warning/testing folk like me who are most at risk .. I’m in the vulnerable age group (71) and NOT a peep out of the authorities gummint or centre management!

    Rafe & Cardi,
    I received a telephone call today from the office of my local member re the first question on baseload power.

    The answer was that the party would be guided by the experts and that there would be a reliance on a mixture of solar, wind and hydro. He said the party accepts, unlike the Greens, that coal is slowly – as opposed to quickly – on the way out.

    I was able to respond that without backup none of these choices will work, bringing up the following:

    1) that the S.A. battery has limited stored power – only minutes instead of hours or days – and for all the cost.

    2) that the China Pestilence has made the electorate realise that we need manufacturing but without reliable and cheap power that can’t happen.

    3) the concerns over Liddell closing will require the right decision-making now – there is no more time.

    4) that Snowy 2.0 is a dud & the party should hammer the Govt on the exponential increase in the costing and the lack of any significant power that it will generate – that it is a slight of hand based on time of day generation and re-set.

    He knew that Malcolm Turnbull had been responsible for this and said he’d look into it.

    5) that experts are there for their expertise but should not be making decisions, which is the purview of politicians who stand before and are evaluated by the people. (I used the example of the current situation, and how one health expert will advise one thing and another will support a different course of action)

    In the course of the conversation he brought up wave technology and I was able to say that there has been at least two installations that have failed, taking taxpayer money with them and while one day it may work it would only be a power solution for a very small community.

    I was also able to say that the hydro system only works if there is water. I explained what happened when Tasmania exported huge amounts of power to the mainland to cash in on Julia Gillard’s carbon tax but when the rain didn’t come to replenish the water storages, and the interconnector broke, Tasmania had to install numbers of diesel generators. This then led into how wind and solar don’t operate when large tracts of land have no wind and then clouds roll in, which is what happened around Alice Springs earlier in the year.

    My member’s representative was, I thought, very surprised at everything I said. I finished up by saying that I may email again.

    Have you written a follow-up question?

    Q. Could a bunch of CMOs run a school tuck shop?

    It would never be open in case it was needed.

    Technically yes.
    But practically it wouldn’t have any customers.
    No fizzy drinks.
    No chips.
    No salt.
    No sugar.
    Kids wouldn’t line up for carrot sticks and tofu accompanied by a Karen lecture.

    Couldn’t believe my luck last night .. Checking the odds on the TAB site yesterday and noticed the Raiders paying $1.95 with a 14.5 start .. usually, I’m a$5 a pop gamble but couldn’t pass that one by .. splurged $100 (out of my OAP $750 that turned up yesterday) for profit of $95 ..
    Don’t care who they were playing giving Canberra 14.5 start is looking a gift horse in the mouth anytime LOL!

  14. Nah. Make a new state of North Queensland with the boundary the Tropic of Capricorn.
    A new capital built at Greenvale (with premiers and treasury) but most government departments located at cairns (tourism), Townsville (mining and the NQ militia), Charters Towers (agriculture and natural resources) and Mount Isa (arts and environment).

    Longreach should be the capital.
    Look at a map.
    It is near enough the geographical centre of Queensland, and it’s not that far from Barcaldine, the birthplace of the oldest and most significant political movement in the country.

    School tuckshops are under threat, as many south-east Queensland canteens say they’re struggling to operate with rising food costs and a lack of volunteers.

    The Karens in admin are taking over Queenslands kiddies lunches. So instead of minding their own frigging business and just packing lunches for their own kids, they’ve decided they’ll take over the entire bloody lot and organise everyone for their own good.
    Now of course, the system – as they should have known – is falling in a heap and all the wonderful ways they were going to create something that would work perfectly are proving to be just a bit too hard.

    Why is it the lessons of what not to do have to be relearned with every generation?

    (Don’t mind me – I’m utterly over the whole bloody thing.)

    loud denunciations of American icons such as Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln. The Lincoln Memorial has been defaced in Washington, while statues of Columbus are routinely toppled, and even statues of abolitionists and the great Union general Ulysses S. Grant himself were not exempt from the depredations of the vandals. As we write this, we hear calls for the musical Hamilton to be canceled because progressives are no longer happy with some of the positions taken by the historical Hamilton

    .

    Americans as a whole love their history and their heroes, especially the ability of the individual to rise above their times, make bold decisions, and succeed for the good of the country.

    I think this is one of the reasons that Trump will win.

    It is near enough the geographical centre of Queensland, and it’s not that far from Barcaldine, the birthplace of the oldest and most significant political movement in the country.

    Yes, I have vague memories of that party. Used to look after the interests of rural workers, humble cleaners and lower class employees, and industrial workers.

    Now those groups are all ignored, and instead some bunch of interlopers have parasitised the name for a party that looks after the interests of the tertiary credentialled upper middle class, particularly those paid by the taxpayer. They also push weird ideas from the fringes of society on their former political base, and scream abuse at them when they reject those inane ideas.

    Functionality of this catallaxyfiles platform is, to be honest, really terrible. Obviously defined by the quality of content rather than usability! Appears to be both a nostalgic and a cunningly strategic plan (maybe financial).

    Black Power Naps Is Addressing Systemic Racism in Sleep

    Fannie Sosa and Navild Acosta were tired, but it wasn’t just any old fatigue. Yes, they experienced a lack of sleep, but they were specifically experiencing a generational fatigue familiar to Black people and people of color. From this sleeplessness, the two created Black Power Naps.

    Struth,
    Credlin is the wife of Brian Loughnane, who is known in inner Liberal Party circles as “The Wizard of Id”. Brian was the major technical brains behind Liberal Party activity. Together Brian and Peta worked tirelessly for over a decade to make the Liberal Party what it is today – Labor Lite.

    I doubt this had anything to do with a strong belief in socialism. More a matter of “whatever it takes” to win elections. The end product was irrelevant. But that’s just a personal opinion.

    Credlin has been bitter and twisted for several years now, due to her inability to conceive, despite the two of them being on an IVF program for a long time.

    Tread carefully. They are still very powerful, with political friends in high places.

    Now Gladys has decreed:

    Wow.
    Does she not know what generally happens after the reception, certainly pertaining to the newlyweds…
    And:
    This means a husband and wife who sleep together, and attend or are invited to a wedding (think parents of the bride/groom, married rellos or friends) must not dance at the wedding.
    Does Gladys have no knowledge of the real world? Does this further illustrate how out of touch unmarried, childless female pollies are.

    Her husband is way past it, no wonder.
    I know she is just a political hack, MV, but it doesn’t hurt to let her know that we all know it.

    Could you imagine this one scenario.
    We all decide here at the cat to write letters to Credlin, so they all come in within a couple of days letting her know we all see through her.
    My one letter………….useless.
    Us sending letters out without an organised target, everywhere……………….next to useless.
    Me getting that letter up on Alan Jones was just a fluke.

    Us picking a target, not so useless.
    30 to 100 odd letters about the same subject from all over the country would concern them.

    It would.

    I also wrote to the others, Alan Jones and Outsiders letting them know many on the right understand she is putting her party ahead of her country by using Corona virus as a party versus party political tool and hoped they wouldn’t follow her shameful and obvious practice in also doing so.
    That night I got read out but Credlin and Alan Jones nearly had a fight on the screen.
    She wasn’t happy with him, and the rest of the night she tried hard to keep her fuming under control but she was failing badly.
    Fuck her, she is part of the problem.
    To them I say pick your sides.

    She started on Alan and started kicking Dan, and Alan went straight to, well the virus isn’t deadly at all.
    She cut in on him, but the wise old poof knew her trick and went straight back to making his point.
    She basically shut it down.
    She is promoting fear for political gain.
    Is she part of a conspiracy theory to bring down the west.
    No she may not be, but she hasn’t a bone of integrity in her body, and her old public service mate who very much is part of this, she regularly has on her show.

    Giving a shit about her country,……………..don’t make me laugh.
    Enabling those who are part of traitorous activity against our country, she gives not one shit if it helps her politically.
    I point this out because right wing people are too nice…….and by that I mean real right wingers, not the likes of Credlin.

  43. MemoryFault

    that the pen is mightier than the sword is, fundamentally, rubbish!

    True, Gafa.
    That’s because it is only half of the original saying which in modern English is roughly –

    “Under the rule of men truly great
    the pen is mightier than the sword.”

    The inference of the full quote is that the pen is only mightier thn the sword under wise and just leadership. At all other times then pen is powerless against corrupt and/or evil leaders.

    The modern half quote completely reverses the original meaning.

    If found guilty, Mr Palmer could face a fine of up to $340,000, or time in jail.

Unless someone has lived thru historical moments like these of today it will be hard for others to recognize a good ole govt. ‘reset’, whether that ‘reset’ is local or global. My personal experience was the ’98 currency disaster in Indonesia , which to this day I think was a simple ‘ pump & dump’ by the globalists.

Too cliquey, overpriced almost to the point of negating the extra income of being there and a country mile from any decent services unless you waited for them too lob into town every 6 months on a road trip from Mackay or Rocky or from the ‘ville.

    But doing more of the same will achieve the same result, ie. [email protected]

    As Struth asked: What the [email protected] have I done?
    I have been fighting a woke, evil organizations for years, an organization which eats, breathes and sh!ts inclusiveness, diversity, Aboriginal close-the-gappery and Land-Rights-for-Gay-Whales 28hrs/day.
    The process is legal and confidential, but hopefully will result in full public exposure (the evil organization’s main route of defence and concern) and mass-sacking of the senior management. Maybe even something beyond that.
    Small-steps, I know, but better than Zimmer-frame wrestling in front of a computer.

    The fact that it takes years to right multiple wrongs, while BLM, Socialist sh!t heads and other leftards can flout the law and instantly be praised by [email protected] politicians everywhere is why politeness and letter writing, by the great, brave wielders of Senior Cards and beige cardigans, are useless.

    We either copy Alinsky, and do what they do, or we can just go [email protected] ourselves.

    @ Cassie: the Cronulla riots didn’t change the government, because they didn’t last long enough. But the panic in NSW Labor, at the time, was palpable.

    Government is only able to govern unjustly because most right-thinkers believe they can’t make a difference now, and something, sometime, somewhere will happen…in the fulllness of time.

    How’s that working out, chaps and chapettes?

    An insider I know in the shambles of the Victorian government says “stage 4” lockdowns are going to be announced “soon”.

    Informed source, on non-Labor side, says it is coming and Sunday afternoon is the likely announcement. It figures: newsrooms’ light Sunday staffing, late afternoon deadline allow only reporting of The Imbecile’s announcement, no analysis (as if there would be anyway!!!!!)

    If the daily numbers drop, maybe not.

    “@ Cassie: the Cronulla riots didn’t change the government, because they didn’t last long enough. But the panic in NSW Labor, at the time, was palpable.”

    I don’t think so. There was no manic in NSW Labor. I live in NSW and I clearly remember the “riots”, the aftermath and who was blamed….it was John Howard and the Liberal government.

    The ABC at it again. There is a bit of perfunctory reporting on a criminal appeal by a Mr Kenneth Ralph Ernst over an abuse case in a school. Nowhere does the ABC report mention that it was in a state school, let alone identify the school (Maroochydore State High, if you want to know).

    Plenty of prior reporting of the case. It wasn’t in a state school, or any other school. He was a principal at Maroochydore State High School and a Cairns high school, but she was not a student at either of them. They were known to each other outside the school system. She allegedly bragged to her friend at university about having had an affair with him back in the early 90s, but the police did not disclose the friend’s testimony. On appeal he has been granted a re-trial.

    True, Areff.
    That’s why ScoMo’s nation destroying announcements have all been given early Sunday afternoon.
    Full spectrum, dumbed down coverage Sunday night on TV, completely free of any real details.

    Although the men all pleaded guilty to a litany of sexual offences, the judge spared them jail time and said the victim ‘probably agreed’ to have sex with them.

    She ruled the men were also victims themselves after growing up deprived and subjected to physical and sexual abuse at the hands of others in their community.

    No convictions were recorded in the horrifying case, sparking fury across Australia.

    Have a look at the age of the offenders, and then dwell on the point that every single bleeding heart pantywaist in this country is calling to raise the age of criminal responsibility from ten years of age to 14.

    The famous CS Lewis quote gets more and more apt:
    Of all tyrannies a
    tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the
    most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than
    under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty
    may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
    but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without
    end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    Interestingly it was first published in the then journal of Melbourne Law School, “Res Judicata”. Lewis commented in the article:
    You may ask why I send this to an Australian
    periodical. The reason is simple and perhaps worth recording: I can
    get no hearing for it in England.

    Early “cancel culture”?

    Another extract from the same article, pertinent to LS’s link:
    They are not punishing, not inflicting, only healing. But do
    not let us be deceived by a name. To be taken without consent from
    my home and friends; to lose my liberty; to undergo all those
    assaults on my personality which modern psychotherapy knows how
    to deliver; to be re-made after some pattern of “normality” hatched
    in a Viennese laboratory to which I never professed allegiance; to
    know that this process will never end until either my captors have
    succeeded or I grown wise enough to cheat them with apparent
    success-who cares whether this is called Punishment or not?

    Plus there is a macabre fascination in Premier Slime wearing that patented hangdog puppy expression as he dismisses any thought the crap extrusioned all over the Garden State’s carpet these past few months might have any connection with the dark slot framed by flabby white and pimpled buttocks, where a small brain’s pinch of intelligence is subordinated by a megaload of sly.

    Then comes Mikakos, as good an argument as you might raise against inadequate vetting of the post-war immigration boom. Surely, when immigration officials saw her parents march down the gangplank from the Fairstar, the fact that her father had a piece of string hanging from a nostril while mum asked seagulls what had happened to her tampons should have been a clue.

    After that Dr Brett, who you can just tell wants to be back on gay radio JOY-FM telling his on-air pals that climate change is a bigger threat than unprotected sodomy but not half as much fun.

    Dennis gets the nightshift, where he has to cope with dotty pensioners and lonely sorts off their meds.

    Nurse Ratched gets his old slot and, on Sunday mornings, Mitchell’s female protege, Heidi, has an ultra-agreeble chat with Nick McCallum.

    Mike Brady gone, Alan Howe the music guru too.

    I suspect all this is being done by HR/programming to ‘balance the gender voices’, not because any of them are any good on air. Tom’s the last one in the roster worth listening to.

    Travel report.

    Big open fire, proper drawing room of a 1900 doctor’s residence (now B&B) in Mudgee. Sherry, chocolate and stitching all to hand. Bliss. No TV. The addicts may watch in a separate room.

    Mudgee is packed with reffos from Sydney if the number plates are anything to go by. Mostly North Shore. Problem is getting a feed – socialist distancing means all venues are at half capacity and “fully” booked. They are so glad to see visitors – the place must have been a ghost town six weeks ago.

    And I saw the vision splendid as we dropped down from forest to the plain. Sunlight dancing on all the muted shades of the Aussie countryside, punctuated by the odd field of bright lucerne.

    Except the RoP lads who bite, blow themselves up and burn little snowflakes. They don’t cancel that fucked masculinity.

    Credlin and some floozy from WA skirted around the dick with wings in the chunk virus shit-storm in victoristan and why it is worse down there: the answer is PC and the inability of the hunchback to deal with the suds, somalis and the RoP who have done what they wanted. That along with the other protected germ, BLM, has seen the chunk virus fly away.

    Ice Cube has hit back at Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, accusing the NBA star of being a Judas after he criticized the rapper and several other black celebrities for their anti-Semitic tweets which he called a ‘troubling omen’ for the Black Lives Matter movement.

    In a scathing column published in The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, Jabbar called out Ice Cube, NFL star DeSean Jackson and fellow NBA player Stephen Jackson for recent social media posts containing anti-Semitic messages, some of which promoted the controversial views of Nation of Ism leader Louis Farrakhan.

    Jabbar referred to a series of tweets by Ice Cube last month that contained ‘creepy symbols and images’ implying Joos were responsible for the oppression of blacks.

I don’t know and don’t care what these titles, words and codes mean.

    (No wage fixing there, right numpty?)

    Lol. The grey labor market is well below the official one, so of course there’s wage fixing, but that comes from Fairwork – not employers and prospective candidates negotiating rates of pay and conditions.

    All in order to keep wages growth low to negative and save Business from actually investing in local development, while pocketing an ever greater share of GDP.

    We have the highest minimum wage rates in the world and Trades Hall wants more. Business should fork out more, according to Trades Hall the union parasite!
