  1. Dot misleads:

    The first was a Civil Trial in which he agreed to pay his accuser’s Costs plus

    Which is no admission of guilt.

    … plus huge Compensation to the complasinants [or victims, if you like].
    No, but if your driving down1,000 mile Innocence Road heading for Guilt, the Cosby Black Maria got a flat tire 4 feet from Guilt.

  2. No, he was doing Time when the Appeal verdict came in, looks like he got away with it.

    He did prison time for something the State Supreme Court said the prosecution violated his constitutional rights to get.

    That is not getting away with it.

    He does this continually. Takes a contrarian position on something and disrupts the blog.
    He then runs up and down his rabbit holes and then when enough people have answered his Pied Piper routine, leaves and comes back the next day.

  4. Every single word is correct

    Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th
    President of the United States of
    America
    All the Democrats want to do is put people in jail.
    They are vicious, violent, and Radical Left thugs.
    They are destroying people’s lives, which is the only
    thing they are good at. They couldn’t get out of
    Afghanistan without disgracing our Country. The
    economy and inflation are a disaster. They’re letting
    thugs and murderers into our Country-their DA’s,
    AG’s, and Dem Law Enforcement are out of control.
    This is what happens in communist countries and
    dictatorships, and they don’t think they’ll be held
    accountable for rigging the 2020 Presidential
    Election. The Jan. 6 Unselect Committee is a coverup
    for what took place on November 3rd, and the
    people of our Country won’t stand for it.

  5. No one’s going Postal in Australia, Bruce

    Wrong, Grigory.

    Comrade Sneakers in WA has closed his Rockingham office because his staff was threatened. And 2 young folk have just faced Court, having phoned up the man and threatened to behead in. On top of the folks nabbed at Sneakers’ place of residence, trying to physically threaten similar.

    But given his tendency to do this, are we surprised?

    Sneakers is not seen or heard of very much these days.

    This nearly-naturalised Sandgroperstani opines that Sneakers can very clearly hear (and even see) the cracking of the ice he is walking on, but feels a need to keep going towards the thinner stuff anyway. Pride goeth… and that sort of thing.

    However, should any rando Postalling occur, our Overlords have defence Treaties with Indonesia.
    Let’s see how the Posties handle a visit from The Kopassus.

  6. Pretty funny having Google Garry talk about Googlin’ when he is quoting entire slabs of text from what I presume is Wikipedia.

    It doesn’t matter if I was wrong and Google Garry googled’ the trial outcomes. He advanced his argument one step and brought it back two.

    Both trials were not illegitimate, they were not fair trials.

    He was tried twice unfairly.

    If the State can get away with this, they can put anyone they like in gaol.

    “The State had a right to prosecute…”

    No, clearly it did not.

    Here in Tasmania the Premier let it be known that all cases henceforth would be Omicron. Methinks he overestimates his own influence over things somehow. The cynic might note that this serves to load the adverse reactions to the previous more serious variants onto the Omicron strain.

    The other handy piece of polemical kit is post hoc ergo propter hoc.

    True. And the possibility of a post hoc fallacy can conveniently be used to avoid having to confront the vaccines dundoshit argument with objective data. (Here, UK data.)

    The vaccs “work,” he claims, because hospitalisations are down following mass vaccinations.

    Covid hospitalisation in the UK is certainly down, by a factor of five+ from 12 months ago. Within the age groups most at risk of serious outcomes (ie the 60+), the raw data says the unvaccinated are over three times more likely to end up in critical care, or dead.

    First, all viruses bell curve down eventually.

    True too. Hopefully what we are seeing with omicron.

    Second, there is now so much natural immunity in populations that all high vaccination rates do – conceivably, all they were meant to do – is camouflage that reality.

    The UK data, based on analysis of blood donations for Covid-specific antibodies, says ‘natural immunity’ averages ~22% (15% to 30%) of the UK adult population (figures 11 & 12). A long way away from having any epidemiological significance.

    On the other hand, vaccine and natural antibodies are now detected in ~98% of the population. So it’s certainly hard to claim the vaccines “work” by preventing transmission of the pox.

    But equally hard to support a post hoc ergo propter hoc
    argument in favour of dundoshit.

    The evidence seems to be pointing increasing firmly to vaccines as an annual/biannual option for the elderly/comorbid who prefer not to risk the consequences of a serious Covid infection.

    Everyone else can just get on with it exactly as they see fit.

  28. Someone ask Gray Karen Connolly when was the last time he said “herd immunity”. Sometime late last year I would think. Just after the establishment banned the concept because their preventative treatment regime posing as a ‘vaccine’ can definitionally never, ever, create it.

    And I bet he doesn’t even know he’s dropped it and never thought about it again. Yet last year it was all “herd immunity, 70%, vaccines, mRNA super wonder drug – two jabs and it’s all over!”.

    It’s funny watching controlled opposition rushing around trying to stay within the ever changing bounds of polite society – as defined daily for them by the radical revolutionaries who are in power.

A lot of wells are lined with sands and filtering lithologies of gravels well away from ablutions. There is generally nothing wrong with the water and they seem to know exactly how much to store, when to empty it and what isn’t potable. IMO even middle ages people would have had these smarts.

    What I’ve Learned Rescuing My Daughter From Her Transgender Fantasy
    https://www.dailysignal.com/2021/12/13/what-ive-learned-rescuing-my-daughter-from-her-transgender-fantasy/

    My daughter’s story is no longer novel. Stories like it are occurring in your state, your town, and perhaps even on your street. Gender dysphoria—the incongruence between the mind and the body—moves stealthily and quickly to invade girls and boys alike.

    But this isn’t a cautionary tale. It’s a warning.”

    Endone will indeed do the trick. But pace yourself with them and set a line in the sand for discontinuance. The buggers have hooks.

    Yep. That’s correct.

    The Yanks also suggested the best solution to quell the revolution was to block the exits to the bazar and open fire on the protesters.

    Mrs A was in the country in the time as a child. Her father saw the cable at the US embassy. Strange period in history. You actually had to be there to understand the nuance.

  82. Giant Kites That Drag Cargo Ships Across Oceans Go on Trial

    Add ships being dragged along by giant kites to the list of things the industry is exploring in its quest to decarbonize.

    At the start of next year, the Ville de Bordeaux, a 154-meter-long ship that moves aircraft components for Airbus SE, will unfurl a 500 square meter kite on journeys across the Atlantic Ocean. It will undergo six months of trials and tests before full deployment.

    While the industry has come up with multiple decarbonization initiatives, it is struggling to keep pace with goals set out under the Paris Agreement on climate. There’s also pressure on shipping lines from large customers who are pressing to make their own supply chains less polluting.

    The kite is called Seawing. Its developer, Airseas, estimates that an even larger 1,000 square-meter parafoil, flying at an altitude of 300 meters, will cut fuel consumption and emissions from vessels by about 20%.

    Shipping carries more than 80% of all goods traded globally but also accounts for almost 3% of man-made carbon dioxide emissions.

    Airseas says its technology is automated and can be installed on any ship — regardless of size — in a few days.

    This is very wise advice.
    Earlier in the year we had a slight post surgery tussle with Endone. Just a tiny scrap, when my bride had a brief Bilbo Baggins moment after we agreed that the last strip should go in the bin, rather than her.

  87. 1979 has a lot to do with subsequent events.

    People tend to confuse “left” and “right” politically. There is no such thing.

    You can vote “Liberal” or “Labor”, or “Republican” or “Democrat”. You aren’t actually that far apart on the basic issues. Merely different ways of solving problems.

    Ideology is the problem. It’s poison to the mind.

    It’s probably like watching that movie “Not without my Daughter”. I sat through that with my MIL in a picture theatre. She lived there for 19 years, so I’m assuming when she said it was a “load of crap”, she was probably right.

    Most things out of Hollywood generally are.

    I will however, read the book. Historical accounts are much more accurate.

    Diaries, even more so. She wrote in it every day. Fresh memories.

  98. Henry VIII was a Gambler and a Welsher.
    He also had many enemies in Europe, his only legit daughter had married the King Of Spain and she was 2 steps from The Throne.
    He was a great candidate to be poisoned and that’s what happened.
    He rotted away, nobody gave a fuck, they all had their own barrows to push.
    His daughter Elizabeth was an odd looking woman, so Congenital Syphilis can’t be ruled out, but poisoning is most likely.
