Gas heating/cooking has been identified as a target by the foreign interests that direct the local left here

The proles shall not be allowed to have any quality of life. If you think Keneally will be giving up her gas cooktops you’re even stupider than she is.

On Hipgnosis – they did this album cover as well.

On Neil Dung – what a stupid ol’ hippie deadshit. How many of his fans are still alive? About 97% of them would be long underground. I can just hear the Dude now, “I really hate Neil Young, man”.

Late for the Sky – I remember the cover from the seventies, it evoked that mystical California lifestyle (pre poo and homeless strewn streets) par excellence. Never heard of Rene Magritte back in those days. I have a print of the painting in my house.

I have a suspicion that women are wired to want to have (another) baby in their late thirties, early forties, sort of a last gasp of failing fertility.

Two after forty for me, with Hairy, and we were thinking of another when I was around 46 to 50, but decided against it because I had four already. I knew I wanted more children and made no secret of it when Hairy and I first met. I also soon wanted his children, because it was him and I loved him and he loved me too and wanted me to have his children. He’s ten years younger and we’ve never looked back. Still in love, sharing more golden years. Ask anyone who knows us. Love wins. I have a book of history, the suburb where we first had our young family, and in it Hairy has written ‘the best of years’.

It brings me to tears every time.

At one point I seriously questioned the wisdom of you bragging of gallivanting solo, in (too revealing for Jihadists), summer clothes, boldly showing off your Christian Cross, around the parts of Europe where women & girls were suffering major Rape Jihad & murders, and advising young women do it to.

You were so desperate to be boastful of your, ‘swanning around Europe for fun’, lifestyle, that you attacked me for warning single young women against taking your advice to tempt the devil & test God.

As to who’s ‘real’ and where they really may ‘be’, that doesn’t matter.

It is however, a stock standard old diversionary tactic of propagandists who’ve been caught out giving bad & bloody dangerous advice … you know, like telling young idiots to take dangerous trips, ‘for fun’.

The work analyzed the DNA from the remains of 793 individuals, directly radiocarbon dating 123 individuals with genome-wide data to between 1300-800 B.C., from the Middle to Late Bronze Age and found large-scale migration into southern Britain from around 1300 to 800 B.C. These newcomers so thoroughly mixed with the native population that by 1000 B.C. they accounted for roughly half the genetic makeup of southern Britain by the Iron Age, which began about 750 B.C.

One of the topics was Trump was merely a clever ploy by the GOP to tempt the demorats to put up an even dumber candidate in the form of biden. Lot’s of shitty slurs against Trump ensued.

I’ve said it before and will say it again a person’s attitude towards Trump really defines them. The left are self evidently stupid but a lot of alleged conservatives also define their fucktard status by joining in the circular suck view that Trump was an idiot, said stupid things but lucked out a big reveal of the swamp.

I am flaked right now I’ve just finished my work on saving a church. Except for the final lap, which comes in a couple of weeks. May well be a fruitless enterprise but at least I’ve tried. Including firing off emails and hard copies to a World Heritage site in pas-de-calais in France. I’ve travelled in this journey from many places in the UK, to New Zealand, to Canberra, Tasmania, Ontario Canada, Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, the United States and elsewhere. I’ve gone back in time to a second century Gallo-Roman villa and on the way picked up a bastard son of Henry 1 as well as an advisor to Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. Biggest surprise has been it seems Hairy’s mother may have married a war hero bearing my highly unusual family name in his recent ancestry; no-one knew. He was killed in the Far East in WW2 and I found him on Bomber Command’s Lost Heroes’ site. She later married Hairy’s father. He was quite knocked out by that find. Coincidence much?

A couple of years ago (about the time of the Pell trial) I was at a dinner with a few people, and one of them was a psych.
The subject came up of j’isms who see pedos behind every tree and he had a really interesting theory.
He reckons that quite often they were abused themselves by a close family member (father, older brother) in a large, really tightly structured traditional family. They often never confront it, but their coping mechanism is to sort of “normalise” it. That is, they convince themselves that it is going on everywhere so what their family member did wasn’t really so abnormal. In fact, the abuse they imagine is happening in the wider community is even more grotesque than what happened to them.

9.30 mass at the cathedral?
None of the five other attendees (not including the dog) bothered to wear medical masks, let alone ‘rags’ (the dog didn’t either) and quite frankly it makes little difference to me.
There was a little compliance by priest and congregation during holy Communion though.
I’m simply not prepared to let minor things like a mask, or pain from an old broken foot bone, interfere with my holiday or appreciation of mass or anything much else.
And I thought I made it clear that compliance with outdoor mask wearing is minimal, the police here clearly don’t care.

On mass going, the cathedral here in Ajaccio is much in need of repair but nothing like as sad as the interior of oratory of Saint Roch which was my other option.
The back wall in the holy sacrament chapel of the cathedral still has the holes in the wall from where the retable was ripped during a pillage (revolution?) , the shape is the missing work is clearly visible.
The priests are young though which is encouraging, two are of African heritage, I don’t know which order they are, they wear light blue grey cassocks with large rosaries around their waists with sandals and celebrate novus ordo ad orientem at one or the other of the side altars in the cathedral.
And I’m heartily sick of buddhas displayed here and there, tres cool oui?
Other than displaying buddhas, the French seem to worship Leclerc and De Gaulle and the handful of resistance fighters that joined with the allies to drive out nazis in 1943, after whom every square, street, school that isn’t called Napoleon or Paoli is named after.
And up at Parata there is a very ugly, cheap, modern chapel with a cross dedicated to the dead of Algeria from that 1962 war and aftermath, something that is currently causing Macron some grief, though atrocities occurred on both sides, in Paris and Algeria.

WA’s COVID-19 border: Wesfarmers shifts CEO Rob Scott and senior executive team east over reopening delays
Sean Smith
The West Australian
Fri, 28 January 2022 6:00PM

WA’s biggest company, Wesfarmers, is relocating its senior bosses to the east coast in frustration at the McGowan Government’s backflip on hard borders, saying “it is now virtually impossible to run a national business from Perth”.

In a move likely to be followed by other major businesses with interstate operations, Wesfarmers chief executive Rob Scott and a handful of senior lieutenants, including chief financial officer Anthony Gianotti, will run the $57 billion owner of Bunnings, Kmart and Target from Melbourne and Sydney until WA’s borders reopen.

The temporary but “extended” relocation reflects growing exasperation among WA companies over the scrapping of the February 5 reopening and ongoing restrictions which require businesspeople travelling interstate to do 14 days in home isolation on their return.

“The uncertainty around when the border might re-open and the continuing inflexibility towards business-critical travel means that it is now virtually impossible to run a national business from Perth,” Mr Scott said.

He said the inability to travel with quarantine on return and the lack of clarity around a new reopening date “are now having serious impacts” on Wesfarmers, its staff and its growth ambitions.

The subject came up of j’isms who see pedos behind every tree and he had a really interesting theory.

They’re stupid and often have a poorly hidden agenda. No further explanation required.

Psychs think everyone is a patient. We are not. Psychs have a ridiculous amount of power in society. It is far too easy to get someone committed off suspicion of someone with a nebulous and highly inflated arts degree.

There is an article in The Conservation that raises a serious question about our mental health strategies because despite huge increases in antidepressant prescribing and provision of mental health services depression, anxiety, and suicide prevalence remains unchanged. A Medical Journal of Australia study found the ABS data reportage of symptoms of anxiety and depression hasn’t changed that much in the last 20 years. So there isn’t a depression epidemic but there is a huge increase in diagnoses and nearly all of that is made by GPs. There was another recent report indicating that long term use of antidepressants is often not necessary so there is a lot of over prescribing happening. The mental health profession really has to get over this medical model of depression and anxiety because biological drivers of depression are very uncommon(which is the opposite of conditions like schizophrenia and autism, very strong genetic\developmental component). Too many people expect too much from life. Sometimes it is that simple.

He reckons that quite often they were abused themselves by a close family member (father, older brother) in a large, really tightly structured traditional family. They often never confront it, but their coping mechanism is to sort of “normalise” it. That is, they convince themselves that it is going on everywhere so what their family member did wasn’t really so abnormal.

This would explain much of the Daddy issues that directs the output of the ABC/Guardian bimbettes.

I remember the cover from the seventies, it evoked that mystical California lifestyle …

The “mystical California lifestyle” was best typified by “America” (who gave us “Horse with no name”.)*

They also gave us “Ventura Highway”, with its alligators in the air. There was an interesting nascent musical culture growing there which was swamped and drowned by the commercialisation of the California sound by groups such as the Monkeys and Beach Boys. Sad.

So you’ve read Scott Barry Kaufman. I’ve had some arguments with him. Latest driver of Positive Psychology which I hold in unalloyed contempt. However SBK has written two very good books, Ungifted and Twice Exceptional. His latest book though he goes straight back into Maslow and humanist psychology. From the 60’s, ya know that hippie time? Maslow’s is crap and while humanist psychology has some interesting ideas it is not science.

Neuropsychology is fascinating and very important but it is mostly about rehabilitation for those with brain injuries.

Interesting theory…..and one I suspect that has some merit. But I also think there are the rabid contagions that infiltrate through societies at times…..I guess they’re part of the human story, just like human disease. These contagions run amok and succeed in fractured societies dominated by fear, political and social upheaval, societal change and turmoil. And in these fractured societies the contagions prey on and nest in the minds of the vulnerable, the alienated, the angry, the evil, the stupid, the disturbed, the wretched and the miserable….they are used as political tools to destroy people as what happened in the 1950s and as what happened here in Oz recently with the campaign against Cardinal Pell. When I think of these contagions I’m reminded of the aliens in the Ridley Scott films. They sleep and then they wake up or are awakened, they run amok and cause untold damage to people…..we see innocent people smeared and their lives destroyed.

When somebody starts talking about “pedos”, I run a mile, because it’s bullshit.

BTW, I’m reading Gerard Henderson’s “Cardinal Pell, The Media Pile-On and Collective Guilt”. The Pell witch hunt was a sinister and hysterical contagion of (mainly) anti-Catholicism but also anti-conservatism. The left wanted to bring down the epitome of robust Catholicism and conservatism in this country and they almost succeeded.

The book is excellent.

That’s a genuine concern Zulu. It’s common knowledge that State governments try to poach the medium/large Head Office from each other and right now WA would be a huge target. If Wesfarmers set up in, say, Sydney, the NSW govt will do whatever it can to try and get them to stay in NSW. The incentives offered can be very significant.

In fact, I would be surprised if that hadn’t occurred to the Wesfarmers Board who may use it to try and gain even greater concessions.

Dozens of German homes raided in child pornography probes
PUBLISHED JAN 27, 2022, 12:19 AM SGT

BERLIN (AFP) – German police have conducted raids across two states in investigations into child pornography with victims as young as infants, local authorities said on Wednesday (Jan 26), while 100 suspects have been identified in a third case.

The raids in the southern state of Bavaria took place on Tuesday and targeted 50 properties connected to 55 suspects aged between 18 and 73, the state’s interior minister Joachim Herrmann and justice minister Georg Eisenreich said.

They are accused of obtaining videos showing severe and violent abuse of children, including infants.

In Saxony state, the homes of 36 suspects accused of possessing, buying or distributing child pornography were raided last week in and around the city of Chemnitz, police said.

Meanwhile, investigators in the western city of Wuppertal said they had identified around 100 suspects as part of a probe into two men accused of sexually abusing children as young as five months.

The two original suspects, aged 22 and 44, are accused of abusing children from 2016 to 2021 as well as photographing and filming the assaults.

The new suspects are accused of obtaining the resulting child pornography, the investigators said on Wednesday.

The children are said to have been between five months and 12 years old.

Germany has been shaken by several serious cases of child sex abuse in recent years.

Investigators said earlier this month they had identified 439 suspected paedophiles as part of a probe into a huge child pornography network linked to the city of Bergisch Gladbach.

In 2020, 11 people were arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing children and filming their actions after videos and photos were seized from the cellar of a 27-year-old man from the city of Muenster.

In an earlier scandal in Luegde, 125km from Muenster, several men preyed on children at a campsite for years.

The government in 2020 agreed tougher punishments for using and sharing child pornography as part of a crackdown on child abuse.

Germany identifies 439 suspects in pedophile probe
Agence France-Presse / 10:25 PM January 12, 2022

Berlin, Germany — More than 400 suspected pedophiles have been identified in Germany as part of a probe into a huge child pornography network linked to the city of Bergisch Gladbach, investigators said on Wednesday.

A total of 439 suspects have been identified and 65 children have been freed from the clutches of pedophiles since the network was uncovered in October 2019, the Berg special investigation group said.

“We have suspects from all walks of life” including “high earners and highly educated people” as well as “ordinary people,” said investigation group leader Michael Esser.

“They went about their work quite normally and there were no indications in the working environment that such acts had been committed,” Esser said.

Most of the children were abused by a member of their own family, the investigators said.

The victims were aged between under a year old and 17, with the youngest rape victim just three months old at the time of the crime.

The Bergisch Gladbach case was opened in 2019 with the arrest of a suspect known as Joerg L.

Police then were shocked to stumble upon a vast network of pedophiles who abused children and shared images of the crimes in online chat groups and discussion forums, leading to one of Germany’s biggest ever child sex abuse investigations.

The state’s justice minister, Peter Biesenbach, announced last year that investigators had come across 30,000 potential suspects connected with the network.

Joerg L. was sentenced to 12 years in jail in October 2020 for sexually abusing his daughter since she was three months old.

He was found guilty of dozens of acts of child abuse and rape as well as distributing child pornography, mostly involving his daughter who was born in 2017.

Germany has been shaken by several serious cases of child abuse in recent years.

Eleven people were arrested in June 2020 on suspicion of sexually abusing children and filming their actions after videos and photos were seized from the cellar of a 27-year-old man from the city of Muenster.

In an earlier scandal in Luegde, 125 kilometers (80 miles) from Muenster, several men abused children at a campsite for years.

The government in 2020 agreed on tougher punishments for using and sharing child pornography as part of a crackdown on child abuse.

And so is falsely accusing someone of pedophilia merely because they are a political enemy.
I don’t like many in the US Democratic Party.
In fact I detest their grubby politics.
But fabricating tales of them running a child abuse ring out of a pizza shop based on some vague stuff in Podesta’s emails is about as low as any human can go.

Just to be clear.

It is my honest belief that there is nobody here that condones, let alone endorses crimes against children. Nobody.

As Dot mentioned, the Rotherham disgrace should not be confused with the most recent uncovering of sharing child abuse clips in Chermany, if not the abuse itself. Across the globe, this is encountered regularly, and busted regularly, and the crooks binned for decades regularly.

It does NOT mean there are entrenched centuries-old traditions of this shit going on and endorsed by governments, if for no other reason that thousands of people have left (or been voted out of) governments every single year, and there hasn’t been a solitary whistleblower of this type.

rsrsrssr, it is abundantly clear that this is your ‘special interest’. If you have anything to back these claims up that doesn’t involve demonstrably false claims of kids being farmed out of tunnels under US pizza shops at the behest of the Democrats, please put it up – otherwise, as shithouse as the subject matter is, you’re just regurgitating news with an unsubstantiated opinion topping – like David Koch.

I’ve also pointed out that police here, and I’ve seen many, have zero interest in mask compliance, otherwise people would be whipping them on when they saw plod, they don’t.
As for the likelihood of police storming the cathedral to arrest people for not wearing a mask. Ludicrous nonsense.
The Paris outdoor mask mandate was overturned by the courts a week ago, so it is possible other prefectures have abandoned blanket rules.
