One Tiger got taken out by a Greyhound that it drove past without noticing. The Greyhound had to close the gap fast to nail it in the arse at minimum range.

From Bar Beach Swimmer’s link above:

The fourth attachment is the toxicity report on ALC-0315, which comprises between 30-50% of the total ingredients. The Safety Data Sheet, (attached as Exhibit B) for this primary ingredient states that it is Category 2 under the OSHA HCS regulations (21 CFR 1910) and includes several concerning warnings, including but not limited to: … Caution: Product has not been fully validated for medical applications. For research use only

Am I reading this correctly? An ingredient that comprises 30-50% of the ingredients of one of the vaccines (which seems a rather vague measurement, but I digress), is not recommended for internal application?

Seems to me parental rights were sacrosanct on this blog when it came to the NHS a few years ago.
It should also be the same principle when it comes to vaccination.
Seems a bit inconsistent to say otherwise just because you don’t agree with the particular parental decision.
Otherwise you are on the side of state interference into parental rights.
And that is not me agreeing with the abomination of puberty blockers or trannies at the library.
The solution to that is re evangelising our atheist country.

Govt Serving DOCTORS & LAWYERS Denying Parents their Right & Duty to seek potentially LIFE SAVING Treatment for their children, is The SAME EVIL as Govt Serving Doctors & Lawyers Denying Parents their Right & Duty to Protect their children from Life Destroying “Trans” Quackery.

It’s the Trans Quackery that Govt Serving Doctors & Lawyers Enforce AGAINST the Parent trying to save their child from the crazy/evil Parent, usually the mother.

Before the NHS, Abortion on demand, Child ‘euthanasia’ & the “Trans” abomination, it used to be criminal for parents to kill & maim their children, EVEN FOR ATHEIST Parents, yet you, as a “devout Catholic”, argued violently FOR the NHS to CONDEMN CHILDREN TO DEATH, against the parents Right & Duty to do all they could to save their children.

That you tried to construct that blatant false equivalency as an attempt to paint yourself as ‘the good & just Christian’, shows you in the very opposite light.

P I was still at school in 1986, yup sure do remember him and the rest of the Parramatta greats before 1986. Along with the grudge matches vs Canterbury-Bankstown. Dad had already got posted to Victoria in 1986 so I lost touch with Rugby League as the only TV we had was GMV 6 or SES 8 and the ABC on Ch 3. All firmly VFL, which was alien to me at the time.

Also something that may take some Cats back a fuel oil heater, which by the late ’80’s was converted to LPG. We never had these in Sydney or Brisbane.

More on the Vic covid stats.

Firstly, this is an absolutely sickening way to describe the outcomes. “Lives recovered” is Orwellian.

Lives lost and recovered

Here’s a bit of a breakdown in Vic. covid cases: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/additional-covid-19-case-data#cases-in-hospital

A total of two. Fucking TWO people under the age of thirty have died of covid in Vic.

“Masses of young people asking for vaccine while being ventilated” is complete bollocks.

btw. Nurse Spence has been pushing this ‘young people will die!’ line for over a year: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-07-24/coronavirus-intensive-care-nurse-warns-young-people-will-die/12486738

So you are OK with others declining to answer similar questions from belligerent ice-pipe types when they get on here asking “are you vaxed” and “are you going to use the vax passport”?
It seems we have degrees of protest action here.
You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your business in part or in full over this.
That’s too big a price.
But we can insist that people don’t use the vax passport on frivolities like …

Exactly P, my birth certificate was stuck in Liverpool. Baptised at St Christopher’s in Heathcote rd. I spent the first part of my life there. Used to be somewhere you tried to downplay if you were from there. Had relatives there till recently though I still have rellies further afield in Campbelltown. I was last in the area about 18 months ago, was in Penrith with friends over New Year so even closer.

(Haven’t read upthread yet so apologies if this has already been put up)
I received an email from the Covid Medical Network today, which linked to an affidavit of Ltc. Theresa Long M.D. in support of a motion for a preliminary injunction order (for the Covid vaccines)

This point from the Affidavit, which in one form or another has been stated by many well qualified medical practitioners, seems highly relevant –

24. The shots carry mRNA that causes the recipient to create trillions of spike proteins. This is a problem for five reasons. First, it turns out that the spike proteins are not remaining locally in the (shoulder) injection site but have been found circulating in the blood and in virtually all organs of the body. Second, the spike proteins themselves have been shown to be pathogenic (disease causing) attaching to endothelial, pulmonary and other cells, forming clots and attacking heart cells. Third, the spike proteins and their lipid nanoparticles cross the blood brain barrier, with unknown long-term effects on the brain and high concern for chronic neurodegenerative disorders. Fourth, these spike proteins interact in many signaling pathways which may trigger tumor formation, cancer, and other serious diseases. Fifth, according to Pfizer’s Japanese distribution study of LNP accumulation, unexpected sequestering in reproductive organs and spleen raise very serious long-term concerns. As aircrew Training Program (ATP) 5-19, 1-8 states we shall: Accept No Unnecessary Risk. “An unnecessary risk is any risk that, if taken, will not contribute meaningfully to mission accomplishment or will needlessly endanger lives or resources. Army leaders accept only a level of risk in which the potential benefit outweighs the potential loss. From a risk management assessment perspective, with no long-term safety data regarding these five issues, this is an unacceptable risk management risk.

Anyway, been a long day. A mate needed some landscaping work done. Needed a skiddy, he doesn’t have the foggiest how to use. I gave him an offer he couldn’t refuse: beers 2 blocks worth and he has to dry hire the bobcat. Spent the day pushing dirt around for him and moving stuff with the 4 in 1 bucket. Been over 10 years since I wrangled on of those, took about 5 mins and it all came back again. Fun day, may do it again tomorrow if he needs more.

Yeah, well they’re not about to sack your spouse for not having it and you don’t have school age children.
So for some of us it’s a constant worry, and it’s NOT going away.
So I guess you’re going to have to live with the ongoing commentary, Elizabeth.

Arky, I get the issue of mandatory jabs and I am firmly against them. So what is your problem there?

I also have a twelve year old grandson whom I don’t want jabbed but his mother does.
I have four children, all variously jabbed, their own initiatives.
I have an eighteen year old grandson whom I have partly brought up through hell and high water and I would have prefered him to wait to be jabbed.

Of course I don’t worry about any of them, nor did I worry about Hairy getting jabbed given all of his blood and heart issues, and of course I’d have been happy to fall off the twig myself when jabbed and leave everyone to manage without me./sarc off.

I just balanced the risks and take the worry, like anyone else.

The ongoing commentary from people like srr that I am a child-killer and drug pusher – I can do without that level of insanity when I engage in any critique of the hearsay and outright obfuscation that she in particular peddles, with a few others.

I am weighing up the shots on personal health grounds.
I am against anyone losing their livelihood if they conscientiously object to the jab.
I am also against anyone from either side of this argument calling me a “baby killing, Nazi, gentile brain eating fascist” or a “rabid anti-vaxxer” because of my decision, either way.
And if I choose to get the jab and if I choose to use the vax passport, any objectors better standby for an incoming “get fucked” over that too.

Hairy and I are also wanting to put our position firmly to our daughter that her three children all under the age of 8 should not be given any sort of Covid vaxx while under 18, that she and her husband should wait until another alternative if available if Covid proves to be a problem down the track for children.

I worry about her taking the Pfizer vaxx because a sudden emergency with that would leave three motherless children and one worn-out grandmother to step in again.

My grandson probably got his AZ jab because he works part-time at Target while studying and they require their staff to be vaxxed. So what makes you think I know nothing of these worries????

My girlfriend in Tassie knew the man who keeled over in his 40’s with the AZ thrombosis with thrombocytopaenia. Rare, but it happens. But so does Covid, and there is a death rate there which while inflated is still of concern.

Hairy took him and some other kids from there to the Grand Final the year when the Rabbitos finally won and what a night that was.

Good to hear the old names mentioned: Doonside, Mt. Druit. St. Mary’s. They forgot Rooty Hill.

I tried to identify the 25% of empty seats due to the last-minute draconian ruling but the place looked almost full.

Hairy pointed out that the very top tier of seats was empty. Which might theoretically have reduced the rate of any spread but the risk was low and the pain of cancellation for all of those who lost their chance at seeing the game was very great.

As you say, it was a draconian decision with very little real science to back it and I was glad to see an almost total lack of the ‘mandated’ masks amongst the crowd; they couldn’t arrest them all. Shows just where the public feeling on all of this is moving – towards passive resistance. The cancellation decision was a sop to politics.

As with many of Chook’s initiatives, it backfired.

2 million Israelis lose Green Pass today (3 Oct)

Nearly two million Israelis lost their Green Passes today (Sunday) as new rules went into effect.

Under the new rules, which went into effect at midnight, the Green Pass will only be valid for six months after the recipient’s last coronavirus vaccine dose. Under the new rules, between 1.7-1.9 million Israelis will lose their Green Passes.

All Israelis must update their Green Passes on the Health Ministry website or mobile app.

And anyone can become an unperson for not getting yet another “booster”. Russian roulette anyone?

I am weighing up the shots on personal health grounds…
And if I choose to get the jab and if I choose to use the vax passport, any objectors better standby for an incoming “get fucked” over that too.

Sancho,
You’ve been rather animated on this point, and my statements seem to have been misconstrued. So let me clear it up.

First, please forgive me for being dubious of anyone who claims to get the jab only for personal health reasons, and then starts waving the passport around like a DVA Gold card. I’m not attributing that to anyone in particular on the blog, just a potential outcome I can envisage in the wider community.

Second, whatever personal circumstances exist, it’s an immutable fact that if you do use the passport to obtain advantage over others, you are validating the system. Love it, hate it, think it justified, think it unprincipled, forced into it…whatever the case – the fact remains, people will have to own it, live with it, make peace with it.

Dunno that it’s all that good in country areas, we live in a town of around 3,500 beef, dairy and tourism is what we rely on. There are a couple of FB pages re what’s happening around the area. A real split in the community has developed, in the town maybe half or more are full on Andrews, because he has saved us and outside town maybe 25% are full Andrews supporters, the rest are anti Andrews/Vax etc to varying degrees. Some of the local cafes refuse to serve you if you’re maskless, I never wear a mask and had few query me and I’m not a cafe haunter, mask wearing is around 95%, the few who don’t comply are some locals and some of the younger tourists.

I posted the other day about a mate who is full on wuflu mad (retired builder) and has a check in code thing on his front door and he’s serious. Anyway saw him and his wife in the supermarket the other day, she said “you’ve forgotten your mask”, I said “I’m a free man, I don’t wear them”. She was horrified, I think that’s the end of a long friendship, it’s sad. So don’t think it’s much better in the sticks, the divisions are even more obvious.

What about supporting local small businesses that have been crushed for months or Catholics participating in the Eucharist after being denied so long? Catholics have a Sunday mass obligation that transcends political considerations.
I don’t have the passport but don’t pretend that not using it is a clear cut moral decision, especially when in NSW at least the passport has a finite life and using not using probably won’t make an iota of difference to government decisions regarding its shelf life.
And considering the abuse dished out to someone who is clearly in the vulnerable category for covid, just for getting vaccinated, why should she give up any more of her life because December 1 (nothing) isn’t good enough?

More on EVs and the grid.

Under UK regulations, restricted charging times will come into force in May 2022, as new chargers in the home and workplace are to automatically switch off in peak times to avoid potential blackouts. New chargers will be pre-set to not function from 8am to 11am, and 4pm to 10pm.

In the UK, where there are currently only 300,000 battery electric vehicles (EVs) on the UK’s roads. Electric car charging points in people’s homes will be preset to switch off for nine hours each weekday at times of peak demand because ministers fear blackouts on the National Grid.

Now that’s going to be interesting: from next year in the UK owners will only be able to charge their cars 15 out of 24 hours per day. I suspect the logical thing will also occur, which is when 10pm comes around and all those EVs are sitting on their chargers waiting, that the surge in power at 10:00:01pm will blow out circuit breakers all over England. Fun!

I have been very much “live and let live” on this.
I have been considering the vax for a long time before passports were even mentioned, and was leaning towards a ‘yes’.
What gets me ‘animated’ is fuckwits getting on here liberally spraying around words like ‘traitor’, ‘treason’ and ‘Nazi’ at people who would choose to use the passport.
And particularly when it comes from someone who has been granted special privileges to work for 18 months whilst most others sit at home twiddling their thumbs.
His ‘passport’ was his union ticket.
I didn’t hear any calls for him to stay home because he was ‘validating Dan’s TyRaNny’.
What we got here, from some at least, is large amounts of puritanical virtue signalling martyrdom strangely coupled with lynch mob threats.

No, stix did a bit of Makka Mak Daddy E-i-e-i-o stuff. Just once, and then he went all quiet when I reminded him of a few things.

“And then I was like don’t ever come back here again and showed him my sword and he ran for it…”

The only time I’ve ever bothered talking to you, aside mocking you for being Leigh lowes tame sidekick was when I was giving you shit that we don’t need yet another another ‘copper’ worshipping loser when you first arrived at the old cat rubbing yourself about some big man ‘copper’ you knew and were in love with.

Somehow in the subsequent four years you became one.

If I used the vax passport but made representations and let the service provider know I am not happy, is that enough?

I’ll leave that up to your conscience.

Or should I boycott the business?

See above

And should Gunner have likewise boycotted his employment?

Did Gunner use any of the insane new rules to continue his employment?
In doing so, to he gain advantage over his fellow construction workers who were forced not to work?
Did his continuing to work cost others their jobs?

I see ussr created a straw man and killed it dead in capital letters.
We weren’t discussing trans, we were discussing the rights of parents to get their children vaccinated.
[…]

I see rosie is being her usual childishly bitchy, aggressively bullshitting self while dog whistling for the thug to help cover more rosie bullshit.

YOU, rosie, raised YOUR belief, that the NHS has the Right to condemn children to Death, Against the parents Right & Duty to do all in their power to protect their children from a Death Sentence.

But, YOU, rosie, DO want parents to have the Right to sacrifice their children to The State as human Guinea Pigs.

YOU, rosie, also raised the “Trans” Kids issue (you know, what puberty blockers get used for), only to expose just how much you will bend, twist and lie to attack your targets & Support The State Over The Individual.

Which is why YOU, rosie, made sure to not quote or post a time stamp to what YOU, rosie, knew you were lying about, again, so let me end the argument here and re-post the recent history (buried in the late hours that you hope few will see or remember), so people can see your shameless arrogance & lies for themselves –

Seems to me parental rights were sacrosanct on this blog when it came to the NHS a few years ago.
It should also be the same principle when it comes to vaccination.
Seems a bit inconsistent to say otherwise just because you don’t agree with the particular parental decision.
Otherwise you are on the side of state interference into parental rights.
And that is not me agreeing with the abomination of puberty blockers or trannies at the library.
The solution to that is re evangelising our atheist country.

Govt Serving DOCTORS & LAWYERS Denying Parents their Right & Duty to seek potentially LIFE SAVING Treatment for their children, is The SAME EVIL as Govt Serving Doctors & Lawyers Denying Parents their Right & Duty to Protect their children from Life Destroying “Trans” Quackery.

It’s the Trans Quackery that Govt Serving Doctors & Lawyers Enforce AGAINST the Parent trying to save their child from the crazy/evil Parent, usually the mother.

Before the NHS, Abortion on demand, Child ‘euthanasia’ & the “Trans” abomination, it used to be criminal for parents to kill & maim their children, EVEN FOR ATHEIST Parents, yet you, as a “devout Catholic”, argued violently FOR the NHS to CONDEMN CHILDREN TO DEATH, against the parents Right & Duty to do all they could to save their children.

That you tried to construct that blatant false equivalency as an attempt to paint yourself as ‘the good & just Christian’, shows you in the very opposite light.

Apart from Colesworths and a few other lucky members of the charmed circle, businesses around here have been bleeding to death for months.

Let’s hope it means that he realises that the incoming Premier will not support this kind of bullying.

To me, EV’s suffer from oversell and the impractical push factor of the zero carbon movement.
Power to weight problems for large vehicles has not been overcome.
Where’s Musk’s prime mover now?
Grid capacity and charging issues are enormous and hugely expensive to overcome.
ICE vehicles are far more adaptable to need than EV. You can take a can of fuel with you.
It takes time to get a technology to a highly practical position.
I was a very early adopter of gps for farm use. I think back to where we were around the millennium compared to the current systems.
-We built towers to receive signal.
-The satellites were in short supply and once enough of them dropped over the horizon you were stuffed.
-Rover and signal interface had to be adapted for the many types of Ag vehicles. -Hydraulic systems needed modification to actuate the commands.
-Repeatability was a huge problem because of weak signal or satellite position.
-Line of sight meant that many receiving towers had to be built for coverage.
-US satellites were of a military nature and we had to buy access codes for the precision signal needed – 2cm accuracy as opposed to 10-20cm.

It was very expensive at the time, $50,000 for one system. Those early sets are suiting on the shelf as junk now.

We can overcome many hurdles in new technology but it takes time and the practical application problems do not go away by hoping some boffin will fix it or government mandates equate to inevitable success.

It was I who raised the trans issue in regard to waiving parental rights, as an example of child abuse. There are plenty of other instances.

Each instance has to be taken on its merits because the issue is so complicated.

If introducing potentially harmful substances into a child’s body is considered child abuse, then that action should be stopped. In this case, however, the parents are in lockstep with the State and get a free pass.

Remember “No-one is safe until we’re all safe”?

Well how about-
“No-one is back to work until we’re all back to work”. No essentials and non-essentials, no frontline compulsory jab mandates, no quisling get-outs.
“No-one is free of this tyranny until we’re all free of this tyranny”.

Catholics have a Sunday mass obligation that transcends political considerations.

Obligations? When Mum was found dead at the end of the bed the new priest at whose church she had worshipped for 40 years refused to come to her home to say the prayer for the dead. He also declined to have the funeral there, actually saying it would be “a lot of trouble” — deep cleaning the church after the service etc., — for just 10 people.

All in all, his response does much to explain why congregations are small and getting smaller.

I have been wondering about that, Joh. How many of these *rsewipe urgers are going to find going to the local shops “difficult” when all this is done and dusted?

It keys in with the thoughts expressed in Arky’s “hypnosis” thread and how Totalitarian regimes, real and attempted eventually end.

Did Gunner use any of the insane new rules to continue his employment?

Yes.
The one which granted construction rights over the rest of the community solely because their union is of the ALP left.

In doing so, to he gain advantage over his fellow construction workers who were forced not to work?

Delete the word “construction” and the answer is yes.

Did his continuing to work cost others their jobs?

Who knows?
Certainly, as a collective, if construction had downed tools it would have escalated pressure on Andrews.
But, in any case, it’s the principle here.
Would my refusing to use a vax passport, in and of itself, help anyone else?

Refusal only works if a critical mass of people do it.

It won’t happen because self-interest is too strong. And that includes self-interest in the practicalities of life, not just its little luxuries.

For example, I’m using a QR code by proxy, simply because it’s my husband who does the shopping. It’s his way of getting out and about and staying sane. Suddenly the quality of an avocado takes on cosmic significance for him!

And when I eat said avocado, that niggly little voice says….cheat! As I said, the Moral High Ground is very boggy.

Second, whatever personal circumstances exist, it’s an immutable fact that if you do use the passport to obtain advantage over others, you are validating the system.

And, if you work in high-rise construction, which is demonstrably non-essential and only gets a free pass because of ALP factional politics, you are validating the system.

EVERY INDUSTRY IS ESSENTIAL to the people who work in them.

Every Industry CLOSED was ESSENTIAL FOR GOVT TO BREAK THE ABILITY & WILL of The People to RESIST THE TYRANNY.

But you know that, which is why you keep arguing for more Govt Tyranny, because we all know The Great Reset will be “great” for some.

Dear young and middle aged people,

Lizzie, notafan and Leigh Lowe formally want you to know that they are tired of your ‘issues’ with the vaccine and covid 19 and are quite happy with the New Normal that it ushered in and so would like very much if you stop being selfish, shutup about it, and accept your mandated fate so they can now go back to enjoying their 30 year retirement that you’ll never have.

Can’t you see how you are stopping them from living their lives??
