  1. Child pornography isn’t a harm reduction technique for the children abused in the production of the child pornography.
    Indeed addiction to child pornography seems to be a subset of child abuse.
    Why doesn’t anyone talk about sin any more?
    I guess that’s the problem when you look at Western Civilisation through an atheist lens.
    And where is the movement to destigmatise being a white male?

  2. BoN mentioned the Chermans freezing to death in the coming winter just before the page turn. This is, of course, great news.

    But it also highlights a broader issue that a lot of people – Australians in particular, who live in a relatively warm country – don’t get.

  4. Did I hear right? Dom is ‘modifying’ his roadmap?

    If they are sensible changes then I can be the better man and allow myself to be mollified – to the extent that I will be content if him and his party be only humiliated in the next election and tossed out on their shiny ample behinds.

    As opposed to what they have deserved until now – for dark smouldering chasms to open in the Earth’s crust and for them to be snatched down and within by the chthonic deities that filled the nightmares of our far off ancestors, huddled in in the caves, those dark spirits forgotten by man but who have not forgotten him, who will inflict torments upon them with a patience that is as impervious to pity as it is to time.

    But one thinks one should be charitable.

  8. Cruel but fair:

    Shit Towns of Australia

    The Gold Coast likes to fancy itself as Australia’s version of Las Vegas, which is true because it’s a tacky tourist trap adorned with fake tits, a shit casino and an unending parade of timeshare presentations.

    The cluster of hotels masquerading as a city is where Australia keeps its unemployed Kiwi scaffolders while they wait for their shot at a third-rate reality show, and has-been strippers with multiple children to multiple men from multiple outlaw motorcycle gangs. If you are looking to get a shit neo-tribal tattoo or contract some novel form of super chlamydia, then the Gold Coast is probably your place!

    Given that it’s Australia’s entertainment capital, the Gold Coast is filled with a plethora of such options, with the only downside being that they are all tacky and shit. On the Gold Coast, fine dining is ‘all-you-can-eat pancakes’ and a fun day out with the family features theme parks with worse safety standards than a Chinese coal mine.

    Popular staples of Gold Coast nightlife include visiting a vampire-themed cabaret staffed entirely by people who look like they recently failed HIV tests, getting attacked by a lower grade league player with ‘roid rage’, or being thrown off a balcony after a Tinder date gone wrong. A popular event on the Gold Coast is ‘Schoolies Week’, which gives high school kids the chance to experiment with alcohol poisoning and tradies from Logan the chance to experiment with getting passed-out high school girls into the back of their van.

    Gold Coast hosted the 2018 edition of the Commonwealth Games, an event that used to exist only so Britain’s former colonies could see who had the fastest slaves and now only exists to give white people who are too shit for the Olympics the chance to win medals, making it the Caucasian Special Olympics. The event celebrated the city’s rich sporting history, which includes multiple failed professional franchises across at least three sports.

    https://military-history.fandom.com/wiki/Demoralization_(warfare)
    Sowing seeds of doubt and anxiety
    Causing self-doubt or doubt in a cause is the simple definition most commonly ascribed to demoralization.[26] Though this is only one aspect of a successful strategic demoralization campaign, it is the most pronounced and essential part.[27] As noted by Harold D. Lasswell, “the keynote in the preliminary spade work is the unceasing refrain: Your cause is hopeless. Your blood is spilt in vain.”[28] Propaganda can be an indispensable tool in fostering an environment of doubt and anxiety.[29] Propaganda may be used to ensure the antagonist is the most feared party, give a feeling of non-worth to the target, exploit internal fissures inherent within the target group, or use the element of surprise to show a target population that their leadership and cause are unable to protect them from the impending enemy threat.

  19. Land councils hit ICAC over Indigenous ‘rip-off’

    Two land councils representing more than 40,000 Aboriginal people have lodged a formal complaint with the Independent Commission Against Corruption over the number of staff and students at the University of Sydney who self-identify as Indigenous.

    The complaint, signed by Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council chief executive Brendan Moyle and backed by Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council chief executive Nathan Moran, says the university is failing to ensure that those who receive benefits for Aboriginal people are in fact Indigenous.

    “Local Aboriginal people have tried talking to them and they have not listened, so now it’s time to see whether this is in fact corrupt conduct by the University of Sydney,” Mr Moyle said.

    “These resources – jobs, scholarships for Indigenous people – are funded by the public. They are designed to help ­Aboriginal people lift themselves out of disadvantage. But how does the University of Sydney determine who is Indigenous? We believe it lets people self-identify. There is important legislation in this area, backed by common law. There is in fact a three-part test to determine Aboriginality, worked out by the ­giants whose shoulders we stand on, and the local land councils are a very important part of the ­process.

    “The University of Sydney is not checking (the bona fides of those who claim to be Indigenous) and jobs, and scholarships and other benefits are flowing to ­people we call the box-tickers.

    “This issue concerns local ­Aboriginal people, who want ­opportunities for their children, and their communities.”

    Mr Moran said he met with the University of Sydney’s new vice-chancellor, Mark Scott, in October “and I personally told him: you have a problem. But he’s from the Department of Education so he knows the whole state government, every university … has the same ­problem.

    “Organisations these days make money off how many Indigenous students they have, how many Indigenous staff they have. Benefits have been put in place to help Indigenous people get out of disadvantage but all I see is some people getting rich.”

    In response. a university spokesman said: “Our vice-chancellor did recently meet a member of the Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council. We haven’t received any formal complaint or any indication they would refer any concerns to ICAC.

    “We operate under the standard definition used by the Australian government. We remain deeply committed to creating more higher education and leadership opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.”

    Darkinjung’s chair, BJ Duncan, said the “three-part” identity test came out of the land rights movement “and it’s important because it’s not only about land. It’s about identity, sovereignty, integrity. It’s about our community and the future.

    Mr Moyle said “Cultural fraud is not victimless. Receiving a benefit to which you’re not entitled is fraud; and any public official who enables it should be investigated.”

    The letter to ICAC specifically targets “the acceptance of self-identification of Aboriginal identity” by the University of Sydney but Mr Moyle said “we will be fighting on many fronts. This is the beginning of legitimate Aboriginal communities unpacking deeper systemic ­issues across the allocation of public resources.”

    The letter argues that “the failure of the University of Sydney to operate within legislation … is likely to satisfy the definition of corrupt conduct under the Independent Commission Against Corruption Act 1988 (NSW).”

    It says the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1983 (NSW) “remains the primary legislative mechanism for defining Aboriginality in NSW” and “should be applied by all public officials and ­institutions”.

    “We have been advised that the University of Sydney, as is the case with many government entities and other institutions, does not require a confirmation of Aboriginality from an Aboriginal community-controlled organisation with cultural authority to provide a proof of Aboriginality.

    “This allows the university to be the determining entity for whether a person is accepted as an Aboriginal person. This significantly increases the opportunity for people who do not meet the legal definition of Aboriginality to falsely receive benefits that are provided at significant expense.”

    It says benefits provided by the University of Sydney include “employment, scholarships, support targeted exclusively to Aboriginal people; the opportunity to apply for a Gadigal early conditional offer of enrolment; lower minimum ATAR requirements; access to an academic skills program before commencing university; ongoing academic and personal support while studying for a degree” and participation in “culturally significant events.”

    The claim says there are ­about “90 staff employed by Sydney University who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander”.

    “Issues with Aboriginal identity have continued to grow as people are self-identifying … to access significant benefits,” Mr Moyle said. “These are intended for legitimate Aboriginal people who have experienced dispossession and disadvantage due to racism, not for people who have not experienced these and who have generally lived a life of advantage and wealth.”

    They gotta keep the fear going on, and on, and on, and ….

    Scientists have raised an urgent alarm about a new covid variant which was first spotted in Botswana which “spreads very quick’’ and has a “very unusual constellation of mutations’’.

    Yes, all well and good, the new scare right on schedule and all that.

    But – what are the symptoms of this variant? Are they any different, or worse, or not? Is this like the “new variant” in the UK that is apparently “symptomless”? (If you believe that one either you’re nuts, or there is a new mutation and it’s basically harmless, as is the usual progression of viruses as time goes on.)

    They can make up and tell us any shit they like now, and all too many people will believe them. The announcement of a new mutation right now very conveniently gives the government another panic prod to apply to the remaining cleanskins, even as the evidence mounts that these jabs are very harmful to many.

    I wonder whatever happened to that precautionary principle they were all so keen on when talking about “saving the planet”? It used to apply to new medications and vaccines….

  28. Booster jab: PM’s urgent jab warning to every Aussie as Europe braces for Covid winter wave:

    Australia will kick start a coronavirus booster shot campaign on Friday in a bid to prevent lockdowns and avoid crippling the nation’s hospitals next winter.

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison is sending a letter to every Australian home pleading with people to book their third jab.

    More than 151 million extra Pfizer and AstraZeneca shots have been ordered.

    Health authorities are desperately trying to avoid Australia being devastated with a new wave of Covid-19, such as the one that is currently causing national lockdowns in Europe as it heads into the northern hemisphere winter.

    Mr Morrison said vaccine boosters, which are recommended to be administered six months after second doses, were the key to keeping Australia open.

This morning I walked to my bus stop on Oxford Street, Paddington and I was shocked to see about five stickers plastered to the bus stop timetable sign (clear vandalism of state government property). These stickers contained anti-News Corporation bile. So, shocked and angry, I used my fingernails to tear them off. They contained blurbs like The Daily Terrorgraph, News Corpse etc, they are professionally made stickers, somebody has spent good money on these. Once I’d taken them off with my fingernails, I realised I should have taken a photo of them so I noticed a sticker a few metres up on an electrical pole so I took a photo.

This really is beginning to look like they’re re-categorised what we broadly used to just call the grab bag of seasonal viruses: ‘the flu’, and they have a utopian plan to control and abolish seasonal respiratory outbreaks from society entirely via a new medical technocractic authoritarian social system.

    Like someone who learns that we’re all covered in bacteria and becomes hyper-aware of bacteria which develops into a complex, the torrents of data coming out of the new advanced viral reporting / ‘surveillance’ and modeling health systems every country implemented in the 2010’s (at the WHO’s order) to track seasonal respiratory diseases in every country are clearly feeding this mania.

    Same energy as climate change ‘science’ – lots of data showing what was always there, now being exploited by midwit ‘scientists’, activists and politicians.

    I believe the vast majority of testing is still the completely invalid PCR test – it should NOT be used to mass screen well people, and should be run at many fewer amplification cycles anyway.

    The PCR looks for a section of the genetic code which is specific to the SARSC0V2 genome, not the spike protein itself.

    I do not know if the mRNA they give you in the vaccines can produce a positive signal on a PCR, but who cares, they are lying about everything, they can report whatever numbers they want.

    In WA, GPs who oer the tests can be fined up to $20,000, while companies face fines of up to
    $100,000 under the state’s Public Health Act.
    The WA Department of Health said they made the declaration because of concerns about the “serious
    limitations” of the tests, which oered an “unacceptable risk” of community transmission due to false
    negatives.
    Health oicials stressed that the serological tests could be used as a screening tool for people aer they
    have had the infection or for the purpose of public health research.
    SA also announced a ban on Thursday, with oicials declaring that use of the tests “may adversely aect the
    prevention, control and abatement of the serious public health risk presented by COVID-19”.
    The State Government said the ban would apply to anyone outside SA Pathology employees or public
    health services, with police able to issue fines of up to $1000 to GPs and $5000 to companies that oered the
    test.
    The TGA itself advised that serology testing could not determine if someone was infectious, adding that the
    tests were generally used to provide historic information about viral exposure.

    Good point. Anyone taking a booster in Dec-March will be taking it as it’s already waning by June, and the early boosters dramatically so. In fact, people taking the booster in next few months will be asked to take another in June/ July in the middle of winter and the immediate effect on their immune system will be to weaken it.

  44. I haven’t read up thread so no idea what others think about Tim Paine “stepping away” from cricket because of things that happened some years ago off the field.

    A few month ago there were a few stories in the papers about the possible return of Steve Smith to a leadership position – noises like “he’s come back well/he’s earned his place/perhaps the vice captaincy?” I just saw on Sky Michael Hussey supporting that possibility, saying “he’s learnt a lot about himself etc.”

    Everyone has things happen in their lives, some of which is beyond their control and other things that they “did or failed to do.” No-one wants to have to go through those things and hopefully most of us learn from the experience.

    Tim Paine did a stupid thing – but from what I understand it was between two “consenting” adults (I make the assumption that there was no crime committed by him). And though he wronged his wife by engaging in this stuff, ultimately it’s between the three people directly and has/should have nothing to do with his employer.

    Steve Smith, from his own behaviour and lack of leadership, directly damaged Australian cricket, nationally and internationally, and directly brought the game into disrepute. From accounts (media derived), he’s learnt some lessons about leadership, responsibilities when holding any position, especially authority positions, and what personal weakness can do. But those lessons cannot wipe away what he let happen on the field in South Africa, though he has been punished for it. But to give him another chance in cricket leadership is not reasonable, for always there will be questions about his probity.

    Tim Paine, otoh, seems to have become collateral damage for the “people” who want Smith back. Though Paine’s situation is different to another, earlier, captain, it still reminds me of Kim Hughes.

  45. If you get the Booster in December you’ll be ‘unvaccinated’ (lol Science!) by next May / June.

    Which means your friendly Pfizer pusher Scomo will be telling you in May to get ready to get your next allocated already paid for ‘dose’, or no passport for you and you’re killing old people by hypothetically taking up an imaginary hospital bed that doesn’t even exist – you selfish anti-vaxxer.

    At that point many will wonder what was the point of getting the first one, or any, but by then seeing unvaccinated people sitting alone in ‘lockdown’ and the looming threat of moving them to quarantine camps, will decide it’s best to just get that one too.

    And so it will go.

These stickers contained anti-News Corporation bile. So, shocked and angry, I used my fingernails to tear them off. They contained blurbs like The Daily Terrorgraph, News Corpse etc, they are professionally made stickers, somebody has spent good money on these. Once I’d taken them off with my fingernails, I realised I should have taken a photo of them so I noticed a sticker a few metres up on an electrical pole so I took a photo.

  53. Firstly, thank you for reaching out to Stuart Grimley MP to make your views known about the current COVID-19 restrictions, vaccinations, lockdowns and their mental health impacts.

    Stuart was elected by his constituents, and they have well and truly spoken. Stuart feels it’s imperative and morally right that he gives his constituents a voice, rather than prioritising his own political agenda. His constituents have requested that he votes against the Bill – so that’s exactly what he’ll do. Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party will NOT support permanent pandemic legislation.

    You can watch Stuart’s speech outlining why he opposes the Bill here: Opposing the Public Health and Wellbeing Amendment Pandemic Management Bill 2021 – https://stuartgrimley.com/opposing-the-public-health-and-wellbeing-amendment-pandemic-management-bill-2021/

    By way of update, the Bill will most likely be debated on Tuesday 30 November 2021 or Thursday 2 December 2021

  66. In two years – 1/3 the length of WW2, in a country of 25 million, they couldn’t build a couple of covid treatment centres and rapidly train 1000 people to act as specialised nurse-assistants in them?

    This is how you know this is all complete bullshit.

    Scott Morrison is ‘worried’ that in six months time there won’t be enough beds. So where is the huge policy and financial outlay to build more bed capacity for in six months time?

    There is none. Zero.

    They built concentration quarantine camps no worries. Knocked them up in five minutes. But couldn’t add a massive wing onto a hospital somewhere to send all NSW Covid patients?

    All that has happened for two years is authoritarian political bullshit.
    Medically – health wise, if you get covid they tell you to take a panadol and go home and call emergency if it gets bad, that’s at best. Take a panadol, if you feel sketchy give us a call and we’ll shove a tube down your throat.

    At worst – QLD – they order you to go and sit in a hospital bed, no matter how well you feel, and then leak stories about you to the media and mock and humiliate or use you for propaganda.

    That’s the entirety of the medical side of this ‘pandemic’. Take a panadol or go and lie in the local ward with a tube in your throat, oh and there’s not enough beds for a single additional person to get sick above the 2019 norm. This after two whole years of the entire national political and economic world being focused on this and nothing else.

    99.999% of this entire thing is just bureaucracy and public health classes bossing people around and re-arranging society into a long dreamed of vaccine and medical surveillance society. Nothing what-so-ever to do with real people’s health and medicine.

    Commission says unrestricted travel between states should apply to those who get booster nine months after jabs

    People hoping to travel to the European Union next year will have to get a booster jab once their original Covid vaccines are more than nine months old, under new proposals from Brussels.

    On Thursday, the European Commission proposed a nine-month limit for vaccine validity that would apply for travel within and to the EU.

    If the plans are approved by EU ministers, from 10 January 2022 non-EU travellers will be required to show proof of an EU-approved booster jab once their original vaccine status is more than nine months old. Similarly, travellers between the member states would have to meet the same requirement to avoid Covid tests, quarantine and other restrictions.

    Rosie – From a similar date:

    Extraordinary Roman mosaic and villa discovered beneath farmer’s field in Rutland, UK (25 Nov)

    Further excavation involving staff and students from the University of Leicester’s School of Archaeology and Ancient History examined more of the site in September 2021. The remains of the mosaic measure 11m by almost 7m and depict part of the story of the Greek hero Achilles.

    The artwork forms the floor of what’s thought to be a large dining or entertaining area. Mosaics were used in a variety of private and public buildings across the Roman Empire, and often featured famous figures from history and mythology. However, the Rutland mosaic is unique in the UK in that it features Achilles and his battle with Hector at the conclusion of the Trojan War and is one of only a handful of examples from across Europe.

    The room is part of a large villa building occupied in the late Roman period, between the 3rd and 4th century AD.

    Interesting to speculate whose villa it was, since they had to be rich and very well educated to’ve wanted Iliad scenes for their dining room floor.

    I’m over 70 and at the very beginning of the 1st NSW lockdown when GLADYS shut, amongst everything else, swimming pools I realised that to stay fit enuf for an, eventual, re-opening I needed to stay fit .. sooo I increased my, coupla times a week bike riding, to a daily habit and now, over 18 months later I’m now a sight fitter than I was even back then .. and if, fingers, toes and other bits crossed, dum parrot-head doesn’t renege ,, again! ..

Was greeted with a sign blocking the road “Closed due to extreme weather conditions”. It is 26 degrees and a bit breezy here today. Drove around the sign to ask someone what was going on….Too windy.

    Are you on a lunch break, or an RDO?

    Or have your two jobs (one self-employed) that pay income taxes and GST and other assorted transactional levies to those debbil-debbil tyrannies you rail (honk!) about on a daily basis, been reduced to (one self-employed)? In which case I grieve. Unemployment is awful.

    If you are on shiftwork, awesome. I hope you are well on top of the fatigue management, because I agree it is an arsehole of a thing.

    Otherwise, stop slacking. You have a life (*ahem* TyRaNnY *cough*) to uphold, and flinging yourself further down the rabbit hole does your health no favours.

  121. In Pisstake news:

    J.K. Rowling becomes target of ‘witchhunt’ under the influence of the West’s ‘political correctness’

    Rowling only expressed the worry that under the influence of “political correctness” LGBT groups would harm women’s rights and she has denied that she has discriminated against the LGBT community. However, the West has still called her “anti-transgender” and “transphobic.” Nobody really cares about what Rowling is worried about, but only that she disagrees with LGBT-related policies, so they say she is discriminating against LGBT.

    This reveals the unique “single value” in Western culture, which only allows one voice and requires everyone to follow it.

    This is from Emperor Xi’s English language mouthpiece, the Global Times. So, closely considered and strategic.

    Revelling in stoking the cultural collapse of the West – and now so totally fearless of the obvious callout of CCP hypocrisy they can happily razz the Useful Idiots.

    The whole thing is extremely unaesthetic. The only people who should be having sex are the .001% of the population who fall into the brief age category of still being attractive, yet old enough to not make a hash of it. About two and a half months sometime in their late twenties for most people.

    On the other hand people are far more willing to speak up, I’ve had some surprising woke conversations this week. People are feeling a sense of urgency inside themselves and are starting to break social convention to air their concerns in real life.

  124. How news media disinformation propaganda causes mass murder:

    Last Friday, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges against him in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Just two days later, a Black nationalist BLM supporter drove an SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin. It was a slaughter.

    In terms of its outcome, what the US news media is putting on air and in print is no different from Islamic terrorism.

  131. Schools can still expel LGBTQ+ kids. The Religious Discrimination Bill only makes it worse

    I am assuming the Religious Discrimination Bill is intended not to demark the limits beyond which regulation may not transgress on religious freedom, but to the narrow confines beyond which there is no religious freedom.

    Some people believe that religious freedom is an ideological imposition on a secular world. But the secular world has an ideology too. It is not the absence of ideology. Secular thought has no trouble making value judgements. Laws which are not merely where technocrats are walking around in tighter and tighter circles (like accounting rules) will be value based.

    ‘Rights’ are values.

    Secular thought must answer the same questions. Religions put value on human life. For example you cannot murder a person. Or a criminal. Or a foetus.

    Secular thought says you cannot murder a person. Perhaps a criminal – although that is an ideological debate. You can kill a foetus. Secular thought makes a value judgement differentiating.

    Secularly, you murder someone you go to prison. You prevent someone from having an abortion it is not treated as you having presented something of no consequence, but you have ‘sinned’ against secularity.

    Difference is that the high priests who laydown these secular values imagine they are not. So we get a confused muddle.

    Translated.
    Ok, OK, you were right all along, but a real gentleman wouldn’t keep throwing it up in our faces.

    Wrong bloke.
    Never said I was a gentleman.
    After the bullshit from many here, including one that may be dead now because of a characteristic I am about to explain,…….you seem to have the misplaced opinion that I give a shit how I’m received around here.
    You can take it as screaming or a hissy fit, or however you wish to describe it, but the truth is, there is an element of aloof self admiration that is totally unwarranted among those who see right wing as more of an upper class club than a set of values.
    And many of those types can’t seem to comprehend that people are not attempting to impress them or get on their good side, just to throw their ignorance back at them, as this ol’ anti-globalist, conspiracy theorist, cow herding, red neck from the back blocks of QLD, and renowned nanna killer is doing.

    The idiocy and blatant denialism is utterly reprehensible , and it comes at a great cost to our nation and there is no excuse for it anymore.
    You just don’t like being told.
    This is not idiocy and incompetence in government.
    It is a global coup d’etat, mostly centred on destroying the west, and their little soldiers like Greg Hunt have been funded and put into strategic government position all over the west.
    Plus you have the left wing march through the institutions, of course.
    The evidence is overwhelming and has been presented here now for nearly two years.
    While their agenda plays out exactly as they told us it would, with everyone up to and including the POTUS mouthing “Build Back Better”.
    Yet I come here and still, ….still,….. people are talking as if this is a party against party, domestic political game with dumb bum politicians being led around by grifters and rent seekers, and power hungry Australian medical bureaucrats that if only controlled, our problems would be over!

  139. And after that latest regurgitation, Struth, what do you propose to do about it?

    After all, there are plenty of people out almost every weekend now, demonstrating they have had quite enough. Many of these Cats have joined them.

    Have you? Or is it easier and safer to vent your spleen at the rest of us and our lack of Struth-like piety and purity? And our refusals to stand, and (if necessary) fall in a way you deem acceptable?

    Sit on your stepladder and spin, Cyril. You are still ranting, while others are now out doing.

    Either accept that there is something you can control and do with yourself in the face of everything this temporary popular hysteria is throwing at you, and damn well get out and do it (even if it is only willing yourself to walk out the door every day and treat life itself as an act of defiance). Or don’t.

    Carrying on as if you are utterly powerless is driving you insane. And latching on to everyone who disagrees with you and spittle-flecking them with your denunciations merely burns your bridges. Not ours.

    Get a grip on yourself. Live your life. That is your act of protest, and the biggest and best and only one you will ever get. Stop cowering in this little cave of anxiety you have carved yourself. You are letting them win.

    I’ve followed Madonna around the world, but now I’m pleading please stop, says NATHAN RAO (25 Nov)

    As she emblazons Instagram with pictures displaying all but her internal organs, her face so filled with plastic that she’s starting to resemble one of those blow-up dolls from Only Fools and Horses, this once devoted fan thinks it’s time she hung up her conical bra.

    I have loved Madonna for decades. I have not missed a single tour. I have followed her around the world, waited hours outside hotels to catch a glimpse of her, visited places she once ate a pizza to have my picture taken outside. I have her name tattooed on my person.

    But now I can’t watch. I can’t watch her chip away at her legacy. I can’t watch her destroy her image. I can’t watch her turn into a laughingstock.

    Die-hard fans still defend all she does. But many like me have come to a point where we’re pleading, Madonna, if you are listening, please stop.

    Although the article is in a newspaper her instagram photos are quite NSFW and not because she’s over sixty. Methinks she likes showing off, just a little.

    This is not about me it’s about people refusing to believe what is going on and being told that doing so is now pathetic with all the evidence at hand.

    So why are you only here to scream at us? Why no good news stories? Why no evidence of a fight, or a protest, or a sneaky little anecdote about what the other proles are really thinking at lunchtime, like all the other Cats produce?

    All we get from you is Bird-like repetition of the same key conceits, followed up by ad-homs.

    Just like that. I’m still confused as to how you think you are ‘destroying’ me or my arguments herr. Or how calling me ‘choo choo man’ is supposed to make me feel bad.

    It’s up there with calling me ‘Rabbi Rex’ or ‘N****r.’ All it does is display your derangement, and my bemusement.
