    Instead, the brave warrior band stood back, chewed their cuds, and put all their hopes in Trumpvald the Destroyer, because they couldn’t be fecked coming up with a different plan.

    Or maybe they thought Trump had this. They didn’t realise the breadth and depth of the deep state. Don’t forget that the great man won the election but had it stolen from him.

    You might be on a loser here.

    In general you are responsible for what comes from your property.

    Fuck this. We had a water problem in the garage as a result of water seeping into the wall from the property on the other side of ours. It cost us 40K to block the water and I never thought of claiming against the neighbor. So, I cop the costs from both sides?

    jupes I’m with you on that — the swamp thought they’d done enough for Killary to be Madam President but didn’t steal enough, too complacent in the belief President Trump would never win and relied on the all media malarkey.

    Bern, it’s not that simple. We have to dig up the garden, lose the plants and trees and then dig down possibly 10 feet to get to below their pavement level. The cost would be no change from a hundi I’d say.

    No.
    Do what Trump did in New York.

    Then when the values drop buy out the others.

  20. JC says:

    The fucker up the hill behind the block has almost all of them. He owns them all except one and that lone dude is holding out for a big payday.

    Here really is a douchebag.

    Trump Parc on Central Park South. He owned the property I think. The building was under rent control and the renters wouldn’t leave. I recall the story. Brilliant.

  24. JC says:

    Arky

    The dude who owns them is the arsehole.

    The holdout is a total loon and we have to always be on his good side because he would burn down our house when we aren’t there. He’s okay, but seriously scary.

    Went back to the old school to do some volunteer stuff this week.

    Officer Brigadier Ian Langford to keep Afghan medal

    Exclusive
    Ben Packham
    FOREIGN AFFAIRS AND DEFENCE CORRESPONDENT
    @bennpackham
    7 minutes ago March 5, 2021

    Defence has prevented one of its senior officers from handing back a distinguished leadership medal earned as a commander in ­Afghanistan during a period when Australian troops allegedly committed up to 16 war crimes.

    Brigadier Ian Langford told superiors soon after the Brereton war crimes report was released that he wanted to hand back his Distinguished Service Cross, but was stopped from doing so ­because there was no formal process to deal with the request.

    More than three months later, Defence’s response to the inquiry has stalled, shielding senior leaders — even those who want to speak out — from accountability for alleged war crimes on their watch.

    An analysis by The Weekend Australian reveals 83 per cent of the war crimes allegations identified as “credible” by judge Paul Brereton occurred under the command of two senior officers — Brigadier Langford and Lieutenant Colonel Jon “Irish” Hawkins.

    Brigadier Langford, one of the army’s most decorated senior officers and a potential future chief of army, was task group commander in Afghanistan from July 2012 to February 2013.

    That rotation, which included the Special Air Service’s now-disbanded 2 Squadron and Victoria Cross recipient Ben Roberts-Smith, was marred by 16 credible allegations of war crimes — the highest of any of Australia’s 20 troop rotations in the Afghanistan war. There were nine credible allegations of war crimes during the January-July 2012 ­rotation, commanded by the now-retired Lieutenant Colonel Hawkins. Both men are highly ­respected in Defence circles and received the nation’s top medal for military leadership, the Distinguished Service Cross, for their 2012 commands.

    Multiple sources close to Brigadier Langford said he was “deeply shocked” as he watched the Chief of the Defence Force Angus Campbell’s press conference releasing the Brereton ­report, which found 39 Afghan ­civilians and prisoners were allegedly murdered by up to 25 Australian soldiers.

    He has told friends he was ­unaware of the alleged crimes by those under his command, and he approached Defence leaders about a week later saying he wanted to return the DSC.

    He was told “a mechanism did not exist for him to do that”, and he would have to wait until one was put in place. The direction followed General Campbell’s order, which was later overturned by Scott Morrison, for meritorious unit citations to be stripped from about 2000 soldiers.

  33. Muddy says:

    My point was that Trump’s role was misread. By everyone. He was sent to hold the bridge for us until we sorted our sh!t out. He wasn’t capable of slaughtering the horde for us. That was our job. WE f&cked up.

  34. JC says:

    Actually, I hope he sells and leaves Arky. That’s because he’s mentally unstable and will end up killing someone on the street or burning down a house.

    He loves us, thank God. Wifey always gives him a wine bottle or sweets for Xmas so he loves us.

    He had a water fixation when we were in the big drought. He destroyed the watering system belonging to the flats on the other side of the street even though they were using bore water. Sent him crazy.

    He goes into the coffee shop around the corner and yells out rego numbers if cars are too close to his driveway.

    Also writes grafitti on neighbors fences if they’ve done something he doesn’t like. Everyone knows it’s him. I cannot afford to be on his wrong side. 🙂

    But nooooooooo.
    Apparently someone has muscled in on the hiring panels who wants something else entirely.
    Maybe if we hired on you know, competence, there might be the chance of the odd good looking bird getting a gig.

    I think I am suppose to have a rossette or a bar to make up 5 years to the 20. Ill have to look into that.

    Christian Porter rope allegations: Unreconcilable teenage memories

    Jamie Walker
    ASSOCIATE EDITOR
    @JamieWalkerOz
    15 minutes ago March 5, 2021

    The woman who accused Christian Porter of roping her at a ­debating tournament in 1988 went on to spend the next day with him, according to her ­detailed retelling of the incident, believing they had a long-term ­future together despite the savagery of the alleged attack.

    Her detailed account of what she described as an eight-year ­involvement with the future federal Attorney-General, documented in a 25-page unsigned statement she planned to give to the police, is deeply at odds with his declaration that he knew her “for only the briefest periods” when they were teenagers and had no contact he could recall after the night of the alleged rope.

    Breaking, from the Oz.

    Can any Kittehs help out? Would anyone who had been sodomized in the bath, by way of introduction, have gone on to spend next day with said sodomizer, and been involved for eight years or so?

    Inquiring minds want to know…

    I would like to see the figures on Lithium vs Lead acid in output and longevity, I understand the lightweight for portables, I think as in a Battery plant-like SA weight is
    not an issue, Just from life experience with cars and tech gizmos I find the lead-acid battery more reliable! Lead-acid mostly cheaper and more reliable for static situations like a power station, and less dangerous, I guess we will never know its not on the Agenda, Lithium is though!

  50. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    LOL….Terry Pedorsen is suddenly an expert on women’s menstruation. I know of no girls, young and not so young who keep or kept track of their menstrual cycles via entries in their diaries.

    Nor do I, Cassie. Never did myself, and nor did any of my friends. Most of us didn’t even have diaries (pre smartphone days). We just wrote future events on a piece of paper, like exam dates etc. For menstrual periods, you just sort of knew because you could feel the progestogen part of the cycle moving along and were hanging out for the period to offer some relief, even if painful. Must be due in a coupla days, you’d think.

    This whole thing from someone with associative disorder, with suicidal ideation and unrealistic mental associations between rope and marriage, being led by ‘counsellors’, and with parents worried as hell about her fantasies, has taken up far too much time. Jupes put it best above. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Wasn’t someone punched and killed by a watee lunatic during the last big drought for watering in accordance with the rules?
    But it wasn’t good enough for the zealot.

  55. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    It’s about as believable as Cardinal Pell doing what was claimed in the Sacristy after Solemn Mass. Especially as there was no bath in the place, no Hard Rock cafe open on the night in question as it was built a year later, and her claims to have gone out with him (before and after, or both?) for eight years!

    All of this fantastical stuff is far less believable than Kathy Sheriff’s recollections, told to friends at the time, of a rather unpleasant night at a Young Labor Conference. And Kathy is still alive to give evidence, and Shorten was older than seventeen (ie. not a legal child) at the time. Hmmmm

  56. Leigh Lowe says:

    I linked to a Daily Mail report the other day, quoting her “statement” which said that, on the following morning, she was confused, but “it was OK because they were going to get married one day.”

    There is no “at odds”.
    There was no “eight year involvement” at least in the real world, or else there would be scores of people confirming it.
