    So.
    Is Bunnings still part of the UN conspiracy and being granted exemptions?

    I would be embarrassed to be the PM and describing this as a ‘disaster’ (the virus) – obviously the government’s response to it is.

    How many black lives were extinguished because Israel Folau refused to kneel at Headingley?

    Two activists with Students for Life of America (SFLA) were arrested Saturday morning while peacefully attempting to chalk “BLACK PREBORN LIVES MATTER” outside of the Planned Parenthood megacenter in the nation’s capital.
     
    SFLA had a permit and had communicated with the city about its plans to paint the street. This came following the city’s decision to allow a private organization to paint on the street a message in support of defunding the police.

    Things like cancelled birthday parties and weddings may not seem to be a big deal in the overall picture. But, they are a very big deal to those who are affected, and that goes double for limiting attendance at funerals.

    All these little pinpricks of hurt to individuals add up to a lot of pain.

    If there was an ironclad case for inflicting the pain to save, say, thousands of lives that could not be saved any other way, that is possibly justifiable.

    But, no such iron clad case exists.

    Combined with the economic destruction, it is as though certain Dear Leaders have a sadistic streak.

  6. Mater

    Are you telling me what my bodyweight is, Mater?

    Nah, just informing you what 73.77% represents when converted using the communist mathematical system.

    But it’s not binary, is only an interpretation and can be whatever you want it to be…depending if you are writing for an audience.

  7. Bunnings is shut for walk ups.
    But open for pick up orders, contactless, natch.
    So one can still order a dozen rakes, pay online and go pick them up.

  8. You don’t know the multiple 20-storey houso caves in inner Melbourne. You don’t know the people there, where they come from, what they do, how they live, what they do to support their various vices.

    What I do know is that they are human beings, each with their own unique personalities, values and rights as citizens. What I do know is that smearing groups of people with foul stereotypes is un-Australian, cowardly, and a symptom of paranoia. This targeting and vilifying is a behaviour that, if it gains a head of steam, leads to chaos and tragedy. Just look east across the Pacific.

    My country has been generally free of this activity, but a quick perusal of this website and others like it, show there are a minority of individuals who harbour ideas that lead straight down that track. They are attracted to sites like these because they can broadcast their putrid philosophies anonymously. They see violence as the solution to all ills and have no regard for Australian values of a fair go and tolerance.

    You couldn’t possibly know how miserable and threatened the people who paid good money of their own to live anywhere within ten kilometres of them feel.

    I’ve had a longer and more varied life than you have, in a range of occupations and locations, and have lived in situations that have led to an accurate assessment of the rights and obligations of myself and others. I’ve never felt “miserable and threatened” because I’ve respect others, irrespective of ethnicity, religious affiliation or wealth.
    I’ve worked for over 40 years with people that you call “spacks” and that you and your ilk fear and despise.
    I’ll tell you something for nothing – as a group, they have more to offer when it comes to sincerity, integrity and honesty than the likes of most of the self satisfied troglodytes who post here.

    If you feel “miserable and threatened” old mate, go and do a shift at your local soup kitchen. You’d be surprised at how much better you’ll feel afterwards. Or better still, offer to volunteer at Henbury. Working in a special school is a great cure for misery and paranoia.

    You don’t know of their protected status in social and judicial systems, made so by successive governments hoping (and getting) their vote.

    Now that is hilarious. You get stuck into a vulnerable group of people because they get a fair go. You remind me of the self-entitled pricks who complain because they get a bluey for parking in a disabled space.

    In my humble opinion you’re far better off opining on things you are familiar with. Like principle abandonment and shaving mirror stories. And plagiarism, cultural appropriation of US military terms whilst you ‘write for an audience’, other countries’ wage policies and blanket origami.

    You have concocted a convoluted fantasy which causes me (and those I share it with) endless mirth. You should really take up writing children’s fiction. There’s quite a market for it. Given most of what you write, you’d have no problem maintaining a suitable reading age (around RA 7 – 8 is well pitched).

    And how Kennett forced all the people to Joh’s Queensland five years before he turned up.

    That sequence is another concoction. Go back and look at what I wrote – or better still, get Mater to do it for you.
    That’s after he’s posted details of his alleged service, of course.

    Is it possible to have the ceremony before a couple of witnesses and the shindig later, maybe next year? After all, it’s the promises they make to each other that count, not the knees up.

    Knowing the media, Victorians could be protesting in their thousands and you wouldn’t know.

    Even other Victorians would not know.

    People don’t lose their businesses without being so fucking angry they’d be ready to kill.
    Many of them.
    What is stopping them is the Karens of Australia.
    Even up here, they’d scream the house down if they saw a Victorian Number Plate.
    Such is the INSANE hysteria.
    Many of these women have very docile husbands.
    These arseholes suck the big one.

    As I said at the start of this, you can’t do anything while the women are screaming hysterically and tearing the more sane women to shreds.
    Australians don’t fire up, they wait for somebody else to.
    I’m staying sane, and still fighting, and it’s most likely going to destroy me and my family, but it will destroy all.
    And that includes the lives of those that supported this and wanted it.
    Like Numbers.
    Like Monty.
    It’s Venezuala and it’s here, just a matter of time.

    Is Leftism an Actual Clinical Psychosis? (2 Aug)

    Watching the literally insane behavior on display in places like Portland and Seattle has prompted a lot of observers to suggest that many of the Antifa mobs suffer from mental illness. This is a thesis we talked about here back in April in “Does Liberalism Cause Mental Illness?“, in which I passed along some of the survey data Zach Goldberg at Georgia State had turned up and analyzed. One of the stark findings of that analysis was that the problem predominated among white liberals. Here’s the chart from that post:

    Lots of fun data. Re your comment Struth this graph is just glorious! The epithet “soy boy” is entirely true. 😀

    BoN, my personal version of identifying leftism as neurosis is reading the agony columns at Slate’s Human Interest forums. These people live in a self-created world of pain about the most trivial things. For example, recently someone wrote in because they were horribly conflicted about whether dropping by a new neighbour’s place with a home-made cake to say welcome would be condescending and racist. The reason? The writer was white and the new neighbour was Latino.

    They are very unhappy people, and it’s all their own fault.

    Can’t Pirate Pete and pals just lay off Israel Folau?

    Mark Powell / The Spectator

    Israel Folau is in the news again, and this time it’s for something he didn’t do. Over the weekend Folau was the only person—players and officials included—on the field to not take a knee in support of Black Lives Matter. To his credit, the coach of the Catalan Dragons, the French rugby union team Folau now plays for, issued the following statement:

    As a club we are completely against racism and all for equal opportunity. But there were some players and staff who made the decision not to take the knee, that was based on personal choice and we decided we would respect anyone’s personal choice on the matter.

    But that wasn’t enough for Nine Entertainment columnist Peter FitzSimons who tweeted:

    It’s clearly been a while since FitzSimons has cracked open a Bible. Because as one of my fellow clergy were quick to point out the obvious truths that he was missing.

    As has now become clear, the Black Lives Matter™ organisation is not only deeply anti-Christian — as evidenced in its own What We Believe statement — but has also produced the bitter fruit of even greater racial disharmony and acts of violence. This is precisely what Jesus himself warned his followers about regarding those who are false prophets (see Matthew 7:15-20). What would God want? He’d tell people to watch out for and have nothing to do with them! Thus, what Folau is doing is completely in keeping with the teaching of the New Testament.

    But there is another—more significant—problem with what FitzSimons is saying. And that is this, why should Folau be bullied by certain sections of the media into doing what he doesn’t want to do? What is it with the left that they feel the need to patronisingly educate people from other cultures about what is, and is not, socially acceptable?

    For someone who doesn’t believe in God or the Bible FitzSimons sure can be preachy. It’s just a shame that FitzSimons didn’t listen more when he was at Peats Ridge Sunday School. Because maybe he would’ve heard what Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount when he said:

    Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way as you judge other, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Matthew 7:1)

    Mark Powell is the Associate Pastor of Cornerstone Presbyterian Church, Strathfield.

  71. For example, recently someone wrote in because they were horribly conflicted about whether dropping by a new neighbour’s place with a home-made cake to say welcome would be condescending and racist. The reason? The writer was white and the new neighbour was Latino.

    They should be more conflicted about their severe mental illness and full franchise as an elector.

    On another note, wouldn’t it have been lovely to have a PM who, instead of bowing before Premier Phlegm’s absurd panic (mind you, it does mean he won’t be getting grief in parliament), said something like:

    “Dirty Dan, I’m not abetting any more of your mismanagement. End this absurd state of emergency now!”

    What is it with the left that they feel the need to patronisingly educate people

    Because they are totalitarian nutcases, as has been now scientifically proven (thanks Bruce) and as demonstrated here daily by the lying clown show, numbers.

    This targeting and vilifying is a behaviour that, if it gains a head of steam, leads to chaos and tragedy. Just look east across the Pacific.

    Looking across the Pacific, Numbers, all I can see is the result of a lot of very bad theorising and teaching of a generation that is now expressing in physical violence the sentiments embedded in that theorising and teaching: viz – judge people entirely on the colour of their skin and the attitudes you believe they should hold because of that, and not at all on the content of their character. Separate people by race and other attributes in a confected name of ‘diversity’.

    Tenants in public housing high rises are definitely human. Some of them are my relatives and affines passing through these situations in the past twenty years, some are still there. Seeking accommodation for a homeless one, the female ‘provider’ I spoke to once said she would not consider a public housing high rise for him as he was ‘better off’ sleeping on the streets, or in his case in a cave in the cliffs off Bondi, overrun with rats. I disagreed and opted for the high rise. He ended up with low rise, good. But my grandson’s schiozophrenic mother ended up in John Northcote Towers (suicide towers, to the locals) where I had to race and comfort her when in the first two weeks there someone went over. I also took a can of white paint and painted out the filthy graffiti in the lobby on the 13th floor where she was, so she and I and especially my little grandson didn’t have to see it. Self-help, the only thing that worked; I am no heroine, but needs sometimes must. In another place, with another one, I cleaned out the human faeces in the communal laundry. You couldn’t get anything done, simply got put on a wait-list no matter how urgent the need for maintenance. The housing offices were run in the way that Daniel Andrews runs a hotel quarantine: with painstaking bureaucracy going round in circles pretending to work, without any system or common sense.

    Stereotyping comes from the reality in this case, Numbers. That’s the reputation these places get, for all of the reasons we know of, and we know too that living in these towers is socially isolating and depressing for many there via poverty alone, who fight their way through the prevailing despair, mental illness, violence, criminality and drug dealing that goes on in ALL public housing, not just the high rise towers. Public housing tends to aggregate disadvantage. There are other alternatives used in other countries but not put into policy in Australia. The Richmond Report in NSW closing all of the psychiatric long-term facilities for supported community life simply dumped the problem into the towers and desperate streets of the low rises, which is part of the problem. Another one in the care of the community, says Hairy as we drive by an underpass encampment of some homeless soul.

    If you want to do some good, Numbers, talk to some of your leftie mates about the above, where practical solutions would be welcome. A broom through some of the policies and processes would be admirable.

    Alex Umansky moved from the former Soviet Union to New York in 1987, two months before Black Monday wiped out 22% of stock market value in a single day. The event left a lasting impression on the 17-year-old, though he scarcely knew what the stock market was at that time. “I really wanted to be a lawyer, but I didn’t speak any English,” says Umansky, who left the former Soviet Union as a Jewish refugee and had one year to learn English in the U.S. before going to college. “My family told me that I should either be a computer programmer or a finance guy.”

    He did both, getting his bachelors in finance, information systems, and mathematics on a scholarship from New York University.

    Elastic is now rarer than hen’s teeth.

    Well-oiled leather can substitute for elastic … to some extent … if you can buy a suitable grade of leather … roo skin would be my first choice for this type of application. Annoyingly, often roo skin is sold very dry and you can’t rush the oil soaking in, might take a few weeks before you get it to the right feel.

    If you can still obtain velcro then making it easily adjustable is also achievable.

    Regular washing in detergent will require oiling again but that’s at least quicker.

    Funerals are even more sad in this time of social isolation and limited numbers, Areff, because people really do need to hug each other and cry together. A good friend of mine passed away a month ago and we could have 20, so I could go, and we did hugs too in spite of the ‘advice’. They also did an online streaming, which others tell me they found very comforting. Hope you can do this for your mum’s friends and join them later too on Zoom.

    Portland Protesters Burn Bibles, American Flags in the Streets

    Protesters flocked to the Justice Center and the federal courthouse in Portland again on Friday night, lighting fires and burning American flags and Bibles in the streets.

    According to the Portland Police, which did not engage with demonstrators, the crowd lit several fires, including a large bonfire in the middle of the street in front of the federal courthouse. One video shows protesters feeding a small fire with Bibles, which were engulfed in flames:

    I don’t know what burning the Bible has to do with protesting against police brutality.

    Do not be under the illusion that these protests and riots are anything but an attempt to dismantle all of Western Civilization and upend centuries of tradition and freedom of religion.

    Portland Police did not engage with the demonstrators but did respond to a nearby shooting, where over 150 rounds were shot. One round struck a woman, per the Portland Police Bureau:

    One round struck an adult female victim in an arm. Responding officers applied a tourniquet and she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries have been reported to police, however bullets struck at least 8 occupied apartments and 7 vehicles (unknown if occupied).

    According to journalist Andy Ngo, who has firsthand experience with Anftia rioters, there has been “a large uptick in shootings & homicides in Portland since @tedwheeler abolished the Gun Violence Reduction Team”:

    The scene at stitch ‘n bitch today

    Did anyone read the piece in the Weekend Oz Magazine, the sort that writer specialises in, the lives of ordinary folk? Lovely portrait of a long-term group of women, friends from the 80’s as mums and members of a local netball team, who have seen each other through years of life, the ups and downs of it, dramas and traumas and fun all shared together, memories of their netball days although no longer playing, doing things together as a large group and in smaller spin offs of threes and four.

    I have a group of friends like that, associated with my dance classes, and the support we give each other is monumental. Each of us is our own person, differing backgrounds, different ages, some very well off, rich even, some less so, some widows, some single mums, some happily married, a few less so, one Chinese woman who lost her son in tragic circumstances, a Sri Lankan girl with glorious smile, most have known each other for years (15 years for me, but some went to primary school together). There’s room for newbies sometimes too, and our leader a woman in her 70’s an inspiration to us all.

    These are not all of my friends, but they are a very special collection to know and indeed to love.
    Little groups of women everywhere do gather like this, hidden in the interstices of the world.

    From a Youtube Post by Tim Pool – Title – BLM Leftists Are Extorting Small Businesses, Vandalize Cuban Man’s Restaurant For Not Paying Up

    BLM Leftists Are Extorting Small Businesses, Vandalize Cuban Man’s Restaurant For Not Paying Up. In Louisville Black Lives Matter members are demanding cash payments to approved non profits, diversity training and hiring, and they demand the list of demands be placed in the storefront window.

    A local business owner refused so they showed up and vandalized his store
    now local cubans will be holding a counter rally decrying the violent “mafia tactics” used to force immigrants to bend the knee.

    Democrats have been ignoring these kind of mafia tactics, rioting, and insanity.

    The double standard cannot continue and these people need to be held accountable. What do you think will happen after we defund the police or abolish the police? These people will take over”.

    I was wondering if you could perhaps help me with a machining search.
    Perhaps it’s just my Googlefu is weak, but I’ve been searching for a video about boring out artillery/MBT main gun barrels, and the changes in production methods last century.
    Specifically looking for the technique of spinning the molten cast to create a hollow that doesn’t need as much machining to be taken out.
    I’d imagine that the speeds needed would be quite high to allow the metals to settle into a stress free grain.

    For real? Wow. I had heard that Krupp developed cast steel barrels and dropped the price of artillery amazingly from the 1850s, and was stoked to see one of their Oranje Vriestaat guns improving the Boer War memorial in Kings Park.
    I had visions of a bore mold core with high thermal capacity and some coolant control to get it crystallising from the bore out, to get a positive stressing from the outer, later crystallising layers trying to contract around the bore, and load the internal stresses in the direction of compressing the bore. I am agog to see how the casting was actually done!

    At Aldi, I was being being polite as usual when a very elderly lady started screaming that I was threatening her life because I wasn’t masked.

    Everybody else in the shop was equally unmasked. I glared at her ancient male companion who replied by pulling out a mask and firing visual darts at me.
    Sadly, we are familiar with this ‘Morning Show’ created terror, because we work with isolated elderly folks (charity) and try to convince them that their kids would be horrified by the unnecessary fear that they are subjecting themselves to. We invite them around, but they never come. All of their social groups have been shut down. Terrifying.
    We took some food out to Wifie’s Genie group which has resisted the panic. An elderly lady (94 yo) turned-up and announced that she had been kidnapped by her Brisbane daughter but had escaped.
    “But those idiot girls at the Q Transport outfit told me I can’t drive”. In a loud voice she said “F Um”.

    Well Robbo, here’s a couple of questions you could have asked the AFL on Buck’s behalf: How could it possibly be safe to run, exercise or socialise with Molik but unsafe to play tennis with her? How could it possibly be safe to play tennis with her on some days but not others? Who is making up these stupid rules at the AFL?

    Poland, the bad boy of Europe, recently got another big black mark. The trouble this time had to do with an institution you might be forgiven for not having heard of, the Council of Europe’s Istanbul Convention on Violence against Women. Under pressure, Poland ratified this convention in 2015. Now, however, following Andrzej Duda’s election victory a few weeks ago – with Duda having run on an unashamedly traditionalist and Catholic ticket – Poland has announced that it intends to give the required six months’ notice to pull out of it.

    The outrage has been predictable. Women in Poland have been demonstrating clad in Handmaid’s Tale costumes. The Council of Europe and a number of MEPs have slated the decision as ‘alarming’ and ‘disgraceful’. Guy Verhofstadt, not to be outdone, has called the affair ‘scandalous’. He went on to tell us, didactically as ever, that ‘violence is not a traditional value. The EU and all of its members signed because Europe stands for human rights, equality and decency.’

    Former Labor MP Barry Urban wants judge alone trial
    Emily Moulton
    The West Australian
    Mon, 3 August 2020 11:50AM

    Disgraced former Labor MP Barry Urban — who sensationally quit politics amid a fake medal scandal — is fighting to have a judge alone trial arguing he wouldn’t receive a fair hearing because of all the media attention surrounding his case.

    The 51-year-old is facing allegations he lied to a parliamentary committee regarding his overseas police service and education history and that he forged a number of documents.

    During a directions hearing today, his lawyer, Edward Greaves, told WA’s District Court the likelihood the former politician would receive a fair trial was less because of the nature and extent of the publicity this matter had and would receive.

    In particular, he highlighted the coverage by The West Australian, which broke the story, saying this newspaper portrayed him as “an odious politician who was worthy of ridicule”

    Opinion | Trump Might Try to Postpone the Election. That’s Unconstitutional.

    He should be removed unless he relents.

    By Steven G. Calabresi

    I have voted Republican in every presidential election since 1980, including voting for Donald Trump in 2016. I wrote op-eds and a law review article protesting what I believe was an unconstitutional investigation by Robert Mueller. I also wrote an op-ed opposing President Trump’s impeachment.

    But I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election. Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats’ assertion that President Trump is a fascist. But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president’s immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate.

    Here is what President Trump tweeted:

    With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2020

    The nation has faced grave challenges before, just as it does today with the spread of the coronavirus. But it has never canceled or delayed a presidential election. Not in 1864, when President Abraham Lincoln was expected to lose and the South looked as if it might defeat the North. Not in 1932 in the depths of the Great Depression. Not in 1944 during World War II.

    So we certainly should not even consider canceling this fall’s election because of the president’s concern about mail-in voting, which is likely to increase because of fears about Covid-19. It is up to each of the 50 states whether to allow universal mail-in voting for presidential elections, and Article II of the Constitution explicitly gives the states total power over the selection of presidential electors.

    It is up to each of the 50 states whether to allow universal mail-in voting.

    Election Day was fixed by a federal law passed in 1845, and the Constitution itself in the 20th Amendment specifies that the newly elected Congress meet at noon on Jan. 3, 2021, and that the terms of the president and vice president end at noon on Jan. 20, 2021. Even if President Trump disputed an election he lost, his term would still be over on that day. And if no newly elected president is available, the speaker of the House of Representatives becomes acting president.

    President Trump needs to be told by every Republican in Congress that he cannot postpone the federal election. Doing so would be illegal, unconstitutional and without precedent in American history. Anyone who says otherwise should never be elected to Congress again.

    McGowan retained Indi against Mirabella at the 2016 election with an increased 54.8% (+4.6) two-candidate-preferred vote. The Liberal two-party-preferred vote was reduced to 54.4% (–4.7) against Labor’s 45.6% (+4.7), a marginal two-party result not seen since the 1929 election.

    Shoving her opponent out of the way in a photo op with Ken Wyatt was a pretty fair indication of the level of her political savvy.
    It came back to bite her on the bum.

    Sheffield Cathedral disbands 40-strong choir in bid for ‘fresh start’ to better reflect diversity of worshippers
    -Sheffield Cathedral to replace choir for singers from ‘mixed urban community’
    -The 40-strong choir was mainly made up of private school students in local area
    -Letters have been sent to parents of children in the choir telling them of decision

    Rev Canon Farrow said the coronavirus crisis was not a factor in the decision.

    He said: ‘The chapter was unanimous that we needed a new start where we could look at a choir and a music department that would reach even more people..’

    Yes, great acting by Sir Laurence Olivier to bring the measured bitterness across to the audience.

  234. But I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election.

    Harumph, I say!
    Deep state stooges exiting the Train.
    Lol, you’re irrelevant now!
    MAGA is about to be unleashed.

    ‘It came back to bite her on the bum.’

    In similar fashion to a local attention squealer claiming tens of thousands of Victorian went back in time to another State for cheaper smokes.
