    Can anyone tell me what is offensive about this comment?

    You used the utterly offensive and unforgivable “I” word and “HCQ” word.
    That’s straight into the sin bin.

    From the day they delivered it my recycling bin has stood forlornly empty in the back paddock, slowly accumulating moss and lichen amongst all the other junk that might come in handy one day.

    Cardi, what’s a “recycling bin”?
    Curious outback minds etc.

    Eddystone, have persisted with The Australian, despite their new-found wokeness in some areas.

    Have also persisted – I have had comments accepted, gathered some “likes” , then “rejected.”

  5. If I recall correctly, the concept of ‘Anchor Baby’ comes from the USA where it is a thing. I think Rita P, for example, has it as she was born when her parents were in the US for study purposes, pre Iranian revolution.

    Lazy assumptions that US ideas and laws automatically apply here continue to be a thing.

    Antarctic sea ice is on the increase and tracking above 1979 levels.

    Surely the mass should be the item recorded, not just the area?

    I spoke to Shirley about this.
    You have a point sir, but the reason people measure stuff is because they can.
    Measuring (with any accuracy) the mass of sea ice would be a tricky business.
    Undersea volcanic activity makes things even more complicated.

    If you like, instead of metrics I can provide you with a model. What result would you prefer?

    I’ve checked back thread. There were numerous vile things said about this family by people whom one might expect not to slander them for having the temerity to have had two children (Rosie and Calli are notable but there are others, including the charming ‘they’d been warned not to bud off a polyp’), or for the husband’s hard work in an abattoir being all for show until welfare was available, or simple ‘boot them out’ and ‘fuck them off’ genre statements, including a great deal of negative innuendo about ‘facts’ of the case, contrasts to ‘mercy for the Skaf brothers’, or ‘the children will get over it, they’ll get used to it’, ‘they’d also have to get jobs in Perth’. The general tone of it all was pretty horrible.

    The slander against me, accusations of ‘being played’, denying that I said the child needed both parents in Perth (which I did say), confusing mercy with sentimentality (not so), ‘spare us the recent history lessons’, using the family as my ‘personal things to play with’ – well, that’s just the Cat and par for the course.

    Finally there’s Bespoke:

    Well Lizzie you made yourself the center as a martyr (as always) so we both know who this is about. 😎

    A US couple who were filmed outside their mansion waving guns at social justice protesters last summer have pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges.

    Mark and Patricia McCloskey agreed to give up the guns used in the 28 June confrontation in St Louis, Missouri.
    The couple, both lawyers, made national news when footage of them went viral, launching them to a cameo at last year’s Republican National Convention.
    Mr McCloskey defended his reaction to what he called an “angry mob”.
    “I’d do it again,” he said outside court on Thursday, US media report. “Any time the mob approaches me, I’ll do what I can to put them in imminent threat of physical injury because that’s what kept them from destroying my house and my family.”

  17. Rosie:

    That article makes no sense.
    If Erickson didn’t get a vaccine, the rest is, well, tosh.

    Perhaps the questions to ask are:

    Did the rest of the team get the ‘vaccine’?

    Did they all get it at a club occasion?

    Were there any witnesses at said occasion?

    A little bit of journalistic enthusiasm would be a good thing.

  18. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    I have been receiving phone calls from concerned friends interstate: Vaucluse a hot spot! Am I Ok ? Well, yes. I am. Strange how people think a mention of your suburb means a personal involvement. Worse if it’s from overseas – the calls we received about the bushfires just because Sydney was mentioned. I guess it’s nice that friends care though.

  22. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    Re Johanna, she has made a sensible comment on CL’s site about the substantive case, and while it follows the general line here, it is not in any way out of order.

    I hope she has sold her current property and is happily looking for something more suitable given her arthritis and her age.

  23. Bruce in WA says:

    Lizzie said:

    Funny … you were the first person I thought of, too, especially when the paper specifically referred to a “woman in her 70s” in Vaucluse.

    Glad it wasn’t, though.

  24. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    Meat Processing is Process Work, no one works hard there.

    I’ve worked in a chicken processing factory. Don’t tell me meat is much different.
    The smell alone. The water. The cold hands, wet feet.
    Sure, abattoir work is doddle and kids on the dole everywhere scream to do it.

  25. Mitch M:

    “In my opinion, the people who talk about Simandou have absolutely no idea of the practical challenges or the real issues involved in developing that resource.”

    The obvious answer to the Australian problem with its reliance on iron ore and coal is to turn it into steel here.
    But it’s too hard for the government.
    And the unions would fuck it up anyway along with the greens who are being subsidised by the damn Chinese.
    Sometimes I just bloody well despair at the lack of leadership here.

  26. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    Glad it wasn’t, though.

    Thanks, Bruce in WA. I don’t go up to Vaucluse village much, it’s uphill. But yes, I guess the reporting is what drove my friends to enquire.

    I’m more inclined to drive down to Rose Bay shops by the beach for coffee/lunch.

    The death penalty revives memory of the Holocaust

    JACK THE INSIDER

    Across the world the death penalty is in decline. This is true in the US, too, with a number of states revoking the death penalty while other states struggle with the mechanics of state sanctioned killing.

    Last week, the state of Arizona confirmed it had acquired $2500 worth of Zyclon-B, the cyanide gas used by the Nazis to kill millions of J ews in the Holocaust.

    The Zyclon-B had been acquired for use in the state prison gas chamber which has sat idle for more than half a century outside the state capital in Phoenix.

    I can’t begin to think where Arizona correctional officials purchased the gas, possibly on the dark web through some nefarious means but the very mention of Zyclon-B is sufficient to court controversy and draw attention to the intrinsic ugliness of capital punishment.

    The news first came to my attention in the Jerusalem Post which understandably reported the acquisition with more than an eyebrow raised.

    The last time the gas chamber was used in Arizona, the condemned man took 18 minutes to die with observers noting him coughing and spluttering his way to a painful death by asphyxia.

    Overall the business of state killing in the US has been made more problematic by restrictions of sales of anaesthetics from overseas manufacturers. Big Pharma takes a dim view of its drugs being used for state-sanctioned killing.

    Prohibited supply of the chemical injected to induce death has led to a run of executions in a number of states that found their doses of lethal chemicals were sitting on the shelves with their use by dates running down.

    It’s the anaesthetic, the first step in lethal injection, that has been withdrawn from sale by pharmaceutical companies to states in the belief the drugs will be used for executions.

    The prohibition on anaesthetics notwithstanding, there are increasing concerns about the so called humane method of execution by lethal injection.

    The last execution in Arizona by lethal injection took place in 2014. It took, wait for it, 15 injections and two hours before the condemned man died. State officials became concerned that botched killings cross the threshold of the 8th Amendment to the US Constitution which expressly prohibits the state, any state, including the federal system carrying out cruel and unusual punishment.

    Lethal injection is not conducted by doctors or nurses due to ethical preventions. Corrective service staff are dragooned into the business and obviously poor results take place.

    What is supposed to take minutes often takes far longer with observers noting signs of struggle and often noticeable indications of pain by those subjected to it.

    Only half of the states in the US have the death penalty on the books. 22 states have abolished it and three – California, Oregon and Pennsylvania have governor imposed moratoria.

    The top ten in numbers of death row prisoners executed are all southern states with the exception of one – Ohio. Texas leads the country by a large margin having executed 533 condemned men and five women since 1976. Next come Oklahoma and Virginia, tied on second with 110 men and three women, and 112 men and one woman respectively. Virginia abolished the death penalty in March and that will become law on July 1, 2021.

    Those states with the death penalty still on the books are having to push buttons — on their TV remotes to hit up the History Channel. Death by the electric chair is being reintroduced. Firing squads are being summoned. Death by hanging has already been ruled out under the 8th Amendment.

    Meanwhile, the looming economic and political giant baby, China is responsible for an estimated two thirds of all state executions around the world. But the actual number of state executions carried out in China is less than it was 20 years ago on a mix of official figures and external estimates. China employs death by firing squad.

    Only the Saudis, the Iranian and the North Koreans execute at higher numbers as a proportion of their populations than the Chinese. But oddly, the Saudis, too, had shall we say labour shortage problem two years ago with the government being obliged to advertise for executioners. It turns out there aren’t that many people who consider decapitating people with scimitars a meaningful vocation.

    There is no ignoring the incredible insensitivities of using the same gas that killed millions of j ews in the Holocaust, as a means of executing violent murderous criminals. If a state official is flipping through catalogues from industrial chemists to find poisons to kill people by judicial means, it is fairly obvious that the state is engaging in barbaric acts entwined in a history so dark there can be no justification for it.

    The broad moral argument against capital punishment is that a society should be seen to be better than its worst members.

    It is an argument that has seen judicial killings around the world in decline. Those jurisdictions who still practice it can’t hide behind bizarre notions that their executions are somehow humane.

    The fact that a search for a method of killing people now takes us back to the past, including that of the greatest crime against humanity, is further evidence of the immorality of capital punishment.

    ..
    That would be this piece of shit, Walter LaGrand, who died a fucking lot easier than the guy they murdered:
    ..

    Shortly after 8:00 on the morning of January 7, 1982, Walter LaGrand and his brother, Karl, entered the Valley National Bank in Marana. Armed with a toy pistol, Karl tried to force Ken Hartsock, the 63-year-old branch manager, to open the vault. Hartsock could not open the -vault because he had only half of the combination.

    The brothers then forced Hartsock and Dawn Lopez, a bank clerk, into Hartsock’s office and bound them. After threatening Hartsock with a letter opener, the brothers began beating him. Hartsock died from 24 stab wounds. Karl and Walter tried to kill Lopez by stabbing her six times, then fled the bank.

    I have often wondered why they don’t use a massive morphine/heroin/opium overdose. Or even carbon monoxide …

    (Yeah, I know … I’m stalling ’cause I don’t want to start painting …)

  31. thefrollickingmole says:

    Lizzie.
    I hope you haven’t taken my opinions as an attack.
    Refugee migration is crap, even the system running as it should for onshore is crap.
    Doesn’t matter if the person is good or an outright crim the system is crap at distinguishing.

    But it’s that or no system at all.
    There is no way of repairing the Australian onshore system, it’s been mutilated by endless and ongoing law fare to the stage often the only way to be “ just” is the ministerial intervention.

  33. Arky says:

    The reason Arizona is resorting to gassing the scumbags is that federal authorities keep confiscating the drugs the state tries to import to lethally inject into said scumbags, and federal courts keep adjudicating against them on these matters.
    Arizona gives the murdering crims a choice of exit method.
    You might think whoever made the gas might at least rebrand that shit. Like, “Crimoff” or “Scumaway” something like that.

    On the rare occasions I have had to undergo some sort of live butchering, it is really quite painless.
    They administer some sort of sedative, which is calming to hippy-shit yoga trance levels.
    Then they say “I am just about to administer the general anaes …. ”
    That’s it.
    Why not do that for executions?
    Who gives a fuck how long it takes after the anaesthetic is pumped in?
    And there is no problem with post-op pain management.
    Interesting.
    Of the thousands more euthanasia deaths carried out each year, we never ever hear of one being botched our the person “taking minutes to die in agony”.
    Why is that?
    (Rhetorical).

  35. Leigh Lowe says:

    Yes Bruce of WA.
    A quick general anaesthetic, followed by a massive morphine overdose.

  36. Eyrie:

    The problem is that the economics of re-cycling are mostly marginal at best. Bury in landfill. At some future time it may be viable to mine it.

    I got into a company many years ago that had found a way to electrolytically (?/sp) separate copper and other metals from waste into a 99.99% pure form.
    They were going to take over a tailings dam in Tasmania that had (from memory) about a billion tons of zinc in it, along with 0.2% gold and silver.
    The remaining tailings would be so clean, they were able to use it as fill for buildings, roads etc. Greens kept blocking the project.
    Couldn’t get funding for it – I wonder why, and sold/had stolen from them the technique to China.
    I wonder if the Chinese told the banks they wouldn’t be happy if the project went ahead?
    Remember being really cranky about it because the shares were about 4c each and had the potential to go to about $2.

    But the uber-woke dean of arts (https://twitter.com/CathyColeborne?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor), who rails against ‘Western civilization’ and has got rid of classics, philosophy and any serious history as part of her campaign, who openly sneers at political conservatives and Christians, etc, etc, has been strangely conspicuous by her silence.

    The smell was the worst part. Rotating drums with rubber teats used to take off the feathers as you held the chook in place. I bet it is much more mechanised now.

    Having posted the above, I have to say that I do think recycling what we can is definitely sensible. If the materials have already been mined, refined, smelted, created etc., why simply bury them in landfills if we can viably recycle them?

    It is often simpler and more cost-effective to mine raw materials than can be found in bulk and in relatively pure form… than trying to recycle material that is mixed in with large amounts and varieties of other compounds.

    It’s the mention of those naughty words Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Those are pure kryptonite in Oz comments.

    Also verboten is any mention of the fact the “vaccines” are still only experimental, and only permitted to be shoved into anyone because of the “state of emergency” that has been declared over something that has a 99.98% recovery rate, and that you have to have a test (with a PCR test that is not, and was never meant to be, fit for the purpose of diagnosing a virus, mind you) to even know if you have it.

    The death penalty revives memory of the Holocaust

    What an unspeakably stupid observation.

    For a person to be finally be executed in our current society there is a a vast menu of appeal processes, reviews, more appeals, etc. It is not done on a whim and only for the most terrible of criminals.

    In the holocaust they did not even look at them as people. They did not consider merit of their supposed guilt – nothing so considered. The perpetrators would go to bed at night having slain hundreds of people they had no idea even existed when they had woken up that morning.

    Depending on your beliefs you may find the death penalty indefensible on the straightforward reason that human life is inherently sacred no matter whose and no matter how distasteful they are. God had given them life and society had given them freedom, so it is not for us to take that person’s life even if society can take their freedom.

    Others will feel that there are some crimes so terrible that sustaining the criminal is an affront to the rest of society and, if nothing else, their death might even be a deterrent.

    There are not shallow considerations and, frankly, the Jack the Insider is not a deep thinker.

    And of what is he so archly and surreptitiously accusing people who support it? He surely couldn’t be that nazi about them. Is it OK if I say vegetarians and and people who think animals spiritual remind me of Nasties?

    Why did societies devise the death penalty? Isn’t that what it should remind us of?

    I wonder, prior to WW2, what capital punishment reminded people of.

    I was thinking of the mass because satellites which take the piccies are also able to take height above sea level. Seeing as it’s the north pole area, the mass of the iceberg should be calculable by the height and the area of the ice mass and thus the water displacement?

    It’ll be rejected…..but I agree with your sentiment. Think of the gruesome horror that Milat subjected his victims to……his punishment might have been “life” but he was kept in a degree of comfort for the rest of his life…and died in a bed with some dignity….dignity that he never afforded his victims. That’s not justice.

    I remember speaking to a relative about the “death penalty”……he was opposed to it back in the 1960’s and he actively campaigned for it to be abolished…but as he said, his issue with the death penalty wasn’t the “humane” bullshit….it was the fear of sending an innocent man or woman to their deaths…and there had been cases where that had happened.

    Regardless of whether you agree with the death penalty or not…and there are good arguments on both sides, we now live in a society where there is little justice……a sentence of life should mean life..until that person dies. But now we have situations where murderers walk the street….such as a recently highlighted case where a man who murdered three people is now living in a western Sydney suburb, claims to have transitioned to a woman (of course) and is no doubt living on welfare…paid for by you and me. Again, that is not justice.

    An Adelaide man has been acquitted of trafficking drugs because police secretly replaced cocaine hidden in a hollowed-out novel with icing sugar before the accused collected the item.

    Judge Heffernan wrote that despite the man’s behaviour, there was “no case to answer”, noting that in order to be found guilty he “would have to have performed an act with respect to the actual substance”.

    “For a completed offence, it was necessary for the prosecution to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the accused had taken a step as alleged with respect to the controlled substance, not an inert substitute posing as the controlled substance,” Judge Heffernan wrote.

    “All of the actions alleged against the accused occurred after the substitution of icing sugar for the cocaine.

    “All the accused had done was to store, transport or carry icing sugar, which was self-evidently not an offence.

    “Had the accused been charged with an attempt to traffic in the above circumstances, there would have been a case to answer on the facts.”

    But Judge Heffernan wrote that he was not asked to consider the offence of attempted trafficking and acquitted the accused.

    Relative risk: numbers who might die in Australia per 100,000 people from: AstraZeneca vaccine: 0.3, road accident: 4.7, (2019 figure), unvaccinated & contract COVID: 300-800. There are age effects in all of these, but massively weighted in favor of the vaccine for older people

    if you contract covid

    The more useful numbers weer outlined by Henry Ergas and Jonathan Pincus in the Speccie.

    The death rate in Australia from Covid is about 3.5/100k.
    If you ignore the clusterfuck that is Victoria, it drops to less than 0.5/100k.

    Then we have the efficacy of the vaccine . Maybe 65%?, so now our deaths due to covid drop to ~0.16/100k. In the meantime, we’ve killed enough to bring the total deaths back where they were with no vaccination.

    I’ve checked back thread. There were numerous vile things said about this family by people whom one might expect not to slander them for having the temerity to have had two children (Rosie and Calli are notable but there are others, including the charming ‘they’d been warned not to bud off a polyp’)

    This is getting ridiculous.

    Nobody ‘slandered them for having the temerity to have two children.’ The fact is that after their refugee claims were dismissed as bogus, they then popped out two kids, and each one sparked off a new round of legal challenges. That is why this absurd saga has dragged on for so long. Sans kids, they would have been gone years ago.

    People here rightly believe that we have been taken for a very expensive ride by these liars, and that rewarding it is a terrible idea. It sends a message that people who lie and manipulate the system well enough and for long enough will get what they want.

    Suggesting that because you have met some nice Sri Lankans, it changes anything one whit, is simply ludicrous. This is Sarah Sea Patrol level debate.

    My youngest son has a one in half million chance of dying if he contracts covid.

    My 85 year old mother with no specific comorbities has a one in 700 chance.

    This based roughly on the Oxford calculator.

    I know which of them probably should get the vaccine and which definitely should not.

    Majority of documents sought by Zachary Rolfe defence team to remain redacted, judge rules

    The vast majority of documents Zachary Rolfe’s lawyers argued were ‘buried’ will remain so following a decision by an NT Supreme Court Justice.

    JUDITH AISTHORPE, NT News

    THE vast majority of documents Zachary Rolfe’s lawyers argued were “buried” will remain so following a decision by an NT Supreme Court Justice.

    It comes after Rolfe’s defence lawyer David Edwardson QC appeared in court on his client’s behalf earlier this month, arguing for the reports – which were handed over heavily redacted because of “legal professional privilege” following a subpoena – to be released in full to the defence.

    NT Supreme Court Acting Justice Mildren on Friday decided all but five of the documents would remain redacted.

    Rolfe’s defence lawyer Luke Officer also sought permission for Rolfe, who is on bail in Canberra, to travel to Adelaide to assist with preparations for the trail.
    Justice Mildren accepted the request, with Rolfe to travel to Adelaide for a week.

    Remember when the media made much of Trump’s health tests? Strange they don’t care about Biden’s health as much.

    They do, Nick. The MSM is actually frightened stiff because they may not be able to hold be the dam walls. At a recent speech, Hiden highlighted a 7ish year old girl in the audience and publicly stated she looked 19 because of the way she had her legs crossed. It kind of leaves people speechless as it’s way past weird.

    There is a paragraph inbetween the two posted above. It won’t paste up.

    Basically says the files were coroner reports, compiled by Superintendant Pollock, which disagreed with the “expert witness” reports.

    watch out for the sticky pages.

    Please don’t spoil it for me. I’m having a few problems as it is.

    I swear, I read the commentary about the Hiden talking about the young girl and then flicked on the vid to watch. I couldn’t do it and turned it off. It was beyond weird and veering towards depraved.
