Our internal fascists are scared. What they are scared of, is that we will wake up and realise they are not playing my principles vs your principles and have never been playing this game. It was a ruse, the aim was to divide and conquer, to focus the Untermenschen on each other, by class, now by race, gender, and a myriad other differences. While they prance and dance in marbled halls enveloped in virtue.

They criminalise our very attempt to say the truth by calling it hate speech, incitement. They fear, because they know if we play the same game as they play, they will lose.

All the things suggested above that Howard/Abbott “shoulda” done to TheirABC either require legislation or at a minimum would have required the support of Coalition MPs at their regular Party meetings.

As I seem to have to explain ad infinitum, that support was not forthcoming. The Nats were almost fanatical in their support for TheirABC, as were a big chunk of the Liberals. They were every bit as committed as the Greens and the ALP to leaving it untouched. They still are.

It’s completely irrational, but there it is.

How will the bullshit6 fed survive the uptick in cost???

You mean raising rates? The Fed will be fine, Piggles. Look, it’s going to take generation and perhaps two before we see another peak in rates. I was a bright eyed young boy when I got my first job after graduation and rates weere around 12% or so and inflation was roaring. It’s taken that long to see a low in bond yields. Don’t forget that Japan has been playing around zero since the mid 90s.

Yes there are. Chinese culture is much more focused on discipline than ours. How else have they so long got away with the 996 work schedule? Makes us look like lazy good for nothings.

Having worked in Asia. There is a lot of time spent at work, as distinct from time spent working.

There is a lot about Australian work culture that makes it more productive. Outcome focussed rather than time focussed, a general dislike of workplace politics, a lack of reliance on other cultures and creeds to do the heavy work.

That reminds me of something I heard about German work life. If an employee is on FB at work it isn’t the manager on their case it is the other employees. When they work, they work. I told my brother about that and he replied if only his staff had the same attitude.

There’s little lateral thinking in Asia and this is why innovation isn’t a big thing. I’m not sure why, but a few people have suggested that the written language isn’t conducive to say engineering. Maybe. But over many centuries Asia hasn’t really come up with the goods.

I recently had an interaction with some Chicoms about one of their products that they had upgraded. I asked them what bearing they were using, some massive thing. So to change the shaft they also had to also change the housing, when there was an off the shelf bearing that fitted the new shaft and the original housing, had 90% of the load rating of the one they selected which was 200% of the load rating of the original bearing which worked fine. Very WTF.

I have read that they encourage learning English because their written language works against creative thinking. However a recent doco on China indicated that they are now moving past the copying stage and more focused on innovation. The Japanese excel in engineering creativity, I wouldn’t be surprised if eventually the Chinese start demonstrating more creativity. There is no need for creativity when you are borrowing and stealing other peoples’ ideas but that can’t continue indefinitely.

It’s a very interesting experiment what Japan has done with QE over the past two decades and what the US has done also, but to a lessor extent.

I haven’t looked recently but recall Japan’s debt was around 250% of GDP. Meanwhile it’s QE program has purchased at least half the government’s debt that is outstanding. One side of government – the finance ministry owes the Bank of Japan, which means the debt could essentially be netted (zeroed out).

Since 2020, the Fed has purchased around US$1 trillion of debt and the US appears to be heading in the same direction as Japan.

No economist has yet sensibly explained why the debt central banks have purchased can’t be eventually zeroed – where one side of the government no longer owes the other.

It’s completely irrational, but there it is.

and that my dear johanna is the failure of liberal leadership. Leaders must have a clear vision and must be able to cogently explain and debate it and acquire the necessary votes to get it done.

As for the paradox of freedom, ah but it is indeed a paradox

jefferson understood it.

Paris Nov. 13. 1787.

persevering lying. the British ministry have so long hired their gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to believe them, & what is more wonderful, we have believed them ourselves. yet where does this anarchy exist? where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachusets? and can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it’s motives. they were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. god forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. the people cannot be all, & always, well informed. the part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive; if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had 13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. that comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure.

Absolutely not. In fact very low bond prices strongly suggest deflationary tendency.

Never ever forget what uncle Milt said in explaining things. Man, I miss him. Friedman is one person who should have lived forever as he was that good.

He said that low bond yields indicate previous monetary tightness and high interest rates indicate previous monetary looseness.

I’m not buying , John H. Japan does good rote engineering and innovates a little, but it’s no great shakes. They’re okay, but their innovation isn’t setting the world alight.

The Chinese are what… the oldest group of people on earth in terms of the new modern breeds that came after Neanderthals. China most certainly had a period in the sun, but they just haven’t been around in the past ~700 years or so.

There’s perhaps 5 or so centers of excellence in the world these days and not one is in Asia or even looks like there will be one.

‘the last time our families met we drove them out of Scotland’

I doubt he ever said that and it actually makes no sense.

Queen Anne’s consort (Prince George) was of the same royal line (Oldenburg) and she formally united the English and Scots.

Doubt schmout, it was the best part of the whole toasty bit of the shindig. Everyone laughed along or murmured politely.

Weird how few here bothered to follow the whole Aussie Princess thing.

Oh that’s right, at the time everyone was a open borders libertarian who thought Royal families were quaint old relics with no important influence on their very modern, cosmopolitan lives.

The point was & remains, Old Families have Long Memories & Mary’s father’s quip reminded anyone pay attention of that fact.

Also, the secret rescue of Ural Caucasians was point of pride of the Australians who put saving “unwelcome” lives above the bad laws of Govt, who were happy when they could finally come out and write a book about it.
You could find it in the Australian History section of the library, well at least you could back before the racist fascists started throwing all the important history books out of public libraries.

They’ve won a good number of Nobels, especially in physics. Also a number in medicine as well.
Honda is by far the most innovative motorcycle manufacturer with very original designs. Honda did set the world alight with the CX 500, the Goldwing, and that monster 6 cylinder. Toyota created the just in time principle now used worldwide in manufacturing.

They aren’t setting your world alight but they leading the world in allowing the blind to see the light.
They make us look dull and backward.
Cornea

Scientists in Japan have, for the first time, treated a damaged cornea using induced pluripotent stem cells. According to the surgeon, the person’s vision has improved since the procedure.

This is very important because without the RPE there is no point creating photoreceptor cells. Scientists have been struggling with this problem for decades.

Now, more than a decade after they were created, these stem cells have helped someone. Masayo Takahashi at the RIKEN Laboratory for Retinal Regeneration in Kobe, Japan, and her team took skin cells from the woman and turned them into iPS cells. They then encouraged these to form retinal pigment epithelial cells, which are important for supporting and nourishing the retina cells that capture light for vision.

Quite so Dot…and Mr Donaldson certainly didn’t get “pissed” as our resident and very febrile lunatic maintains.

She should stick to posting comments about “desirable bloodlines”…clearly that’s something she likes and approves of.

Donaldson was laughing, (bragging), that his family drove the Danes/Vikings out and now here they are joining together.
It was fun, they were speechifying & toasting and he came out with that little nugget.

It was also interesting to me at the time because so many wanted to believe the, average Aussie working girl snags a Prince’, story, when the family connections where always known to the families, which brings us back to what Cassie is so determined to ignore; Old Families keep track of each other.

Faarrrk, next she & her chums will be trying to tell people that Burke’s Peerage was something Alex Jones knocked up when he travelled back in time with Tesla

Burke’s Peerage was established by John Burke in London in 1826 during the reign of King George IV. Since then, it has become the definitive guide to the genealogy and heraldry of historical families worldwide. These include the Peerage, Baronetage, Knightage and Landed Gentry of the United Kingdom, the prominent families of Ireland and the Commonwealth of Nations, the Imperial, Royal and Mediatised families of Europe and Latin America, the Presidential and distinguished families of the United States, and the ruling families of Africa, the Middle East and Oceania.

I don’t disagree in general. I’ve been writing similar things off and on for a few years now, including the following just two days ago:

Highlighting hypocrisy/double standards is done with the belief that the targets will feel guilt or shame, and thus in the future modify their behaviour, in order to avoid a repetition of that guilt or shame. How’s that working for us? How has it been working for us the past three decades?

Not everyone is capable of feeling guilt and shame. That much should be obvious. If they don’t have the capacity, how is it we still expect a future behavioural modification? Serious question.

The reasons for some individuals’ incapacity to experience shame or guilt is a digression, and perhaps even irrelevant. We cannot change another’s brain chemical makeup or life experience. Let’s remain focused on the practical: What IS and ISN’T working.

Muddy, I have had a think about this, and I think the problem is much more fundamental. We see it every day. The human brain is more than capable of holding diametrically opposed ideas. It is more than capable of ignoring cognitive dissonance. each idea is just loose connections in a highly dimensional matrix. Only introspection and self awareness prune through these connections to weed out the inconsistencies and garbage. It requires effort and deliberation and exploration to navigate this massive matrix of ideas and experiences in a typical brain. Laziness, shallowness are sufficient prerequisites, to maintain nonsensical beliefs. When you add in fear and hatred, these become the focus and self reinforcing, ideas are contextualised within that framework and inconsistencies are ignored or justified. When you attached personal values to inconsistent ideas, an attack on the ideas becomes an attack on the personal values and leads to anger.

Fear and hatred are the tools of propaganda.

DON’T FIGHT FOR LIBERTY
November 8, 2013 By ISI Archive
https://isi.org/intercollegiate-review/dont-fight-for-liberty/

There is much confusion in the ranks of the American right over what exactly we are fighting for. There tends to be some general agreement that we are standing for a very vague notion we have agreed to call liberty, and that this should be a sufficient rallying cry to unite us in loyalty to each other.

Liberty may very well serve that purpose so long as we do not delve too deeply into the meaning of that term. Some of us have this looming intuition lodged in the back of our minds that liberty has some connection with rightness and duty. Others, seeking simplicity, see this as a contradiction and argue that if we stand for liberty, we must stand for liberty in all things.

What then are we to fight for?

G.K. Chesterton said, “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” No hero marches into battle merely to destroy for the sake of destroying. He marches into battle for the sake of conserving. He marches not because he trying to break free from something, but because he is bound to something.

Chesterton, in another passage, reminds us of this curious fact that “Love is not blind; that is the last thing that love it. Love is bound.”

No struggle can be just unless it is motivated by Love, and if it is truly motivated by Love then the ultimate motive will not be to break free, but to remain bound to something good and beautiful. All too often we see the truth that tyrants are not tyrants because they bind the wrong things, but because they break the good things.

Henry VIII broke from the Church; Robespierre broke from the State; Caesar broke from the Republic; and against them all the truly free men wept at the breaking of these bonds just as Aeneas wept at the thought of his broken home. They wept for their lost Love.

This is the grave distinction between the Conservative and all other dispositions: while everyone else is seeking to break free of anything, the Conservative has a deep suspicion that there is a blessed tie that binds; that he will never be free until he is bound to something.

Don’t fight for liberty. Fight for Love.”

As was Japan and the USSR. Kept us busy for decades.

China is the first nation to develop an IBM designed to take out aircraft carriers. It has two stealth fighter, one clearly an F 35 copy but the other is a very original design with canards which is very strange for a stealth fighter! Previously they had to rely on Russian engines for their jet fighters . Not anymore. They are heavily into fusion energy, and ADR reactor design. It is also a leader in nanotechnology.

The Arizona audit confirms two things:

The amount of illegitimate ballots exceeds the amount of Biden’s victory margin by over almost 40,000 votes, and that the media continue to lie their arses off to hide that fact.

Their claim that the audit finds “an even bigger lead” for Biden is just utter bullshit. A recount of the votes may have shown that Biden ‘won’ by a few hundred more votes than the official tally, however the actual audit shows that 49,000 votes were illegitimate.

Both seats from time to time flip Labor, in fact the last boundary changes where these seats and Capricornia split the regional cities of Townsville, Mackay and Rockhampton make these seats normally marginal.

Scomo had a swing to him in Queensland and a lot of those votes that went to One Nation because of Turnbull came back to him. Question is will he be able to hold them, regional Queenslanders don’t think like Sydney of Melbourne and mask mandates when directed with QR check ins I hear are paid lip service to.

Don’t know. Perhaps you can help me with something. I watched a doco a few weeks ago that stated during the Pacific War the USA had stockpiled chemical weapons. Never used those weapons but I wonder if the situation had become more tense … .

There were large stocks of Phosgene and Mustard in Australia, and a lot of trials for use of Mustard in tropical environments were carried out here. A book on the subject was written about 20 years ago.

One of the more memorable photos in the book was a group of RAAFies in boots, shorts and slouch hats disposing of Phosgene in the outback after the war, by shooting holes in the storage drums with .303s.

Some of the Mustard was stored in disused railway tunnels west of Penrith, some of which are now used for growing mushrooms.

min, it is my understanding that civilian power nukes are the size they are to make them economic. They also run on low enriched uranium or even natural uranium like Canada’s CANDU, unlike the sub reactors which need HEU. Enriching uranium is very energy intensive.
Not to say that small nukes can’t be built or will be uneconomic as there is a new push to built nuclear thermal rockets using reactors that use low enriched uranium. This is one of the casualties of Three Mile Island. Any realistic research on better power reactors was basically slowed way down.

All the things suggested above that Howard/Abbott “shoulda” done to TheirABC either require legislation or at a minimum would have required the support of Coalition MPs at their regular Party meetings.

As I seem to have to explain ad infinitum, that support was not forthcoming. The Nats were almost fanatical in their support for TheirABC, as were a big chunk of the Liberals. They were every bit as committed as the Greens and the ALP to leaving it untouched. They still are.

We are in year 2 of a nationwide self harm event.
All normal libertiues are now at the whim of unelected health mongs.

But closing down the ABCcess would be a bridge too far?
None of the arguments about “oh it would be hard” are worth a pinch of shit anymore, saying they have legislated protection means less than nothing, the entire nation has legislated protections against government overreach, how are they looking?

KD:You can afford to do that, as long as the other bloke’s in those smoking ruins on his back, carved open with his intestines wrapped around his neck.

No you are wrong KD. That is fear talking. The aim is unconditional surrender, not annihilation. War is politics by other means. The japanese emperor was deliberately spared, just like in the middle ages, the lords were spared and ransomed.

Unconditional victory means unconditional surrender, the other side accepts that it must adopt our principles. It’s not about gloating over the corpse or ruins, or humiliating them or being fearful of a insurgency or comeback. It’s about laying down the new law of the land. The spirit of fight is what is extinguished by unconditional surrender and acceptance of the new reality.

This what we did to japan. We had to literally nuke the shit out of them first.

This is where we have failed in every war since. We failed in vietnam, we failed in iraq, we failed in afghanistan, we failed with the soviet union, yes we failed with the soviet union.

In Don’t Let The Bastards Get Away news:

The clock is ticking on net-zero, and Australia’s farmers must not get a free pass

Australian agricultural activities emitted about 76 million tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions in 2019. Of this, about 48 million tonnes were methane belched by cattle and sheep, and a further 11 million came from their excrement.

Luckily author, James Ha, has a promising solution:

Supplements added to stock feed – which reduce the amount of methane the animal produces – are the most promising options to reduce agricultural emissions. These supplements include red algae and the chemical 3-nitrooxypropanol, both of which may cut methane by up to 90% if used consistently at the right dose.

So, a straightforward process of dosing each animal (consistently and at the right dose). Probably best done first thing each morning when the beasts are let out into the paddock.

“They murder, pillage & burn down their own communities, that never get built up again, while the main ‘right’ they ‘win’ from those riots is to sink into yet more unhampered, Govt assisted even, self destructive criminality.”

Or is this a case of you engaging in “racial vilification”?
[no, this is a case of you yet again making shit up about me]

And as if personal slurs aren’t enough, just because you hate me so much, just for the sake of hating me, you feel a great need to also attack one of the world’s most beloved writers because I posted one of his quotes.

You also, insanely (yes, I use that word deliberately because your need to publicly attack me for anything you imagine has now become an obsessive mania), try to justify saying Terry Pratchett has, “written nothing well” (again, a lie by you unless you have read everything he wrote & then you would just be wrong), by dragging other writers into your attack, as if I’ve never read anyone but Pratchett, while ignoring my mention of the many great works of saintly Catholic G.K. Chesterton who was a life long friend of ‘the great atheist’ George Bernard Shaw, but who by your insane judginess now must be evil because he was a good friend of an atheist.

Have you read everything available of Chesterton’s?
I have & I thank God for that man.

But you keep harping on about Lewis & Tolkin.
O.K. I read The Hobbit in one sitting, couldn’t put it down & a rather grand edition of the Narnia Tales is one of my, ‘lifetime library’ gifts to my very bookish grandson (yes one of the Jewish ones), because we’re a family of readers who love reading to our children.

P.S. I’ve spent most of my life correcting people when they’ve tried to write me down as “Ms.”, instead of my correct title of, “Mrs.”, so thank you for at least getting that right.

But closing down the ABCcess would be a bridge too far?
None of the arguments about “oh it would be hard” are worth a pinch of shit anymore, saying they have legislated protection means less than nothing, the entire nation has legislated protections against government overreach, how are they looking?

This is the new rules, government can do what it likes to anybody and anything.

Honestly, somethimes I think there is some sneaky algorithm out there that means that some readers get different words than what I wrote.

I didn’t say they couldn’t do it, I said that they didn’t want to do it. That is, not enough of them wanted it enough, and I estimate of the total coalition MPs, about half were dead against it, including the entire junior coalition partner’s MPs.

You have no idea how passionately the Nats believe in the importance of TheirABC to their constituents, despite all evidence to the contrary. Add to that the wets in the Libs, of whom there are many.

No PM is going to risk busting up the Coalition and being made to look like an idiot over this issue. Not then, not now, not ever.

Quite possibly so, though I can’t see the importance of it either way, but he did indeed make that comment. His speech is up on YouTube. It was a JOKE. I seriously doubt that there was any planning involved in the couple meeting. There would have been tens of thousands more eligible partis around. It just happened but why would that stop him from alluding to an (now) amusing historical fact? Or boasting just a little about his background? He was dressed in a kilt, after all.

We must understand what is at stake here.

Parallel institutions will not cut it.

When I grew up the left played the game we are in, when they didn’t get what they wanted they escalated till they got what they wanted.

Macron has ignored the yellow vests for months. Macron has ignored 11 weekends of anti vax passport protests. Macron is a fascist, he will escalate before the protestors do.

it starts with civil disobedience. if that fails, you either surrender or you escalate.

Dictator dan has pre-empted the escalation, they know this game, it’s built into their dna. They all are attempting to stifle the escalation. panic over jan 6. criminalise a vague idea of incitement. incitement to what? freedom and rights, that’s what.

we want our right and freedoms back. thats the real issue. fuck vaccinations. fuck passports. fuck social credit. and fuck the fascists.

I am stuck with either ABCcess or a bog standard commercial radio station (all the songs you know and love, again, and again, and again…).
The ABCcess has spent nearly every episode of the “country hour” for more than a decade telling farmers that if that pesky coalition would just put in a carbon mechanism they would all be farting through silk just for existing.
Every article finds a way to shoehorn in its pet issues.

Without the ABC the Overton window would be far, far more low government/pro business etc.
Anyone who calls themselves conservative or at least non left cannot justify spending a billion dollars a year of “no enemies to the left” propaganda.

Dirty dog Neil Mitchel rabbiting on about the Grand Final interspersed with gratitude that the protests have been crushed and that the government is bringing in vaccine passports.
What a turd.
Has a restaurant owner on and asks if he is willing to participate in the trial of the passport rollout.
Owner says he would prefer to shut down rather than discriminate on vax status, but his financial situation means he might have to reopen, but he’ll prefer to serve everyone while keeping it as safe as possible.
Wanker Mitchell then chirpily says “You might not have a choice you know”.
All these years listening to these fucks without fully understanding what dirty, dirty stooges they are.
I also notice that to listen to 3AW online you have to now sign up and give them all your details, name, email, phone everything. For what is a free to air radio station running on a government licence.
So there you have it: The mainstream media strategy is complete capitulation to big government fascism, take the government ad revenue, spruik big sport, big business, toe and the party line and pretend this new world is life as usual.

I haven’t looked recently but recall Japan’s debt was around 250% of GDP. Meanwhile it’s QE program has purchased at least half the government’s debt that is outstanding. One side of government – the finance ministry owes the Bank of Japan, which means the debt could essentially be netted (zeroed out).

Since 2020, the Fed has purchased around US$1 trillion of debt and the US appears to be heading in the same direction as Japan.

No economist has yet sensibly explained why the debt central banks have purchased can’t be eventually zeroed – where one side of the government no longer owes the other.
