Feel poorer – at least relatively so.

The aussie just broke/ fell through 70 cents like a knife through butter.

Two things can be true at once:

1) a disproportionate amount of the world’s richest and most powerful people have an interest in using children for various malignant purposes
2) a disproportionate amount of the world’s most delusional people claim to see paedophilia everywhere and compete with each other to hate on kiddyfiddling the hardest

Pedophilia is a terrible crime.

Yes, it is. And most people think that it is, which is why dedicated police men and women chase up these awful people to bring them to justice and the children they abuse to some sort of peace. There is no need to obsess endlessly about this like ssr with insane conspiracy theories, just recognise it happens as an evil part of human nature and deal with it as a civilised society must.

Nor has a single person here ever advanced the opinion that because Cardinal Pell was patently innocent there is no such thing as child sex abuse.

True, but it would be interesting how USSR would negotiate this curve. Pell epitomizes someone holding a very influential and elite position in society. Under the USSR pedo theory, Pell is part of this cabal and therefore guilty.

How could it not be otherwise?

I went ex-Giillette well before. I was fucking sick of buying a smallish pack of their razors for around 40 bucks around 15 years ago. The scumbags’ gouging was the single reason why Schick razors made a come back. Dudes were sick and tired of getting ripped off by these aresholes.

State of play at Pedro’s pub.

1. Mask on to go to the bar.
2. Wave phone at QR thing.
3. Wait for satisfying “ding”.
4. Order beer, mumbling through face nappy.
5. Carry beer into beer garden, remove face nappy, drink beer.
6. Mask on, order dinner.
7. Mask off, eat dinner.
8. Half way through dinner, two plod in full battle armour walk in.
9. Plod lecture group that its OK not to wear face nappy if eating, warn against drink driving.
10. Plod depart.
11. Pedro and dinner companions launch into tirade about CHOs and power drunk pollies.
12. Depart pub.
13. Perth Scorchers win BBL, good cheer returns.

‘very influential and elite’

Depending on who’s taking, engineers are also influential and elite.

One of the hundreds of Chermans pinched for fiddling was an engineer. Therefore, all engineers are fiddlers and use their influence for this purpose.

rrsrss logic in a nutshell.

Hairy uses an electric shaver because he’s on blood thinners, so we made our stand on Colgates toothpaste. He has religiously kept to the ban, using mostly Sensodine. That’s for sensitive teeth, I tell him, and yours are impervious to pain, you never even have a needle at the dentists; but once he gets a brand he sticks to it. I gave way when Colgate Total Extra White seduced me with its promises.

You know, USSR and Faulty would get on like a house of fire. Faulty’s very influential newsletter in the 80s was also on about a global pedo cabal. Faulty was suggesting George Bush snr was a ringleader of this global group of pedos in very high places.

Refuse to show proof of vaxx regardless of your vaxx status. The persistent loss of 10-15% of customers will focus the minds of the unfortunate business owners tasked with enforcing McFuckface’s Vere Are Your Papers order. It won’t take long for them to start insisting on proof of vaxx as enthusiastically as they insist on mandatory check-ins.

Good luck with that in at least the short to medium.

It’s demonstrable that many people are all too keen to get the vax and show the tick in order to “get back to normal”.

Five people in the Cathedral having only have half a face. True?
Maybe.
If true, that would be most encouraging, as I say, for then the renegades, including yourself making up the fifth , might then be of the same substance as would decline the booster shot. But do tell.

Dear Franx.
I said none were wearing masks except during the distribution of holy Communion, not that it makes any difference to me, I’m not going to allow a triviality like a mask distract.
I suspect the reason might be social distancing is not possible at that point.
What that had to do with boosters I don’t know.
Though I’m kind of guessing that people who identify as vulnerable to covid are going to get boosters because it’s the sensible thing to do.
I know it’s the next big line in the sand for those who think this is merely a political issue.

Yeah got swallowed by the Commonwealth a while back. There were a few ructions as the new owners did a bit of housekeeping and suggested a few customers needed to look elsewhere. Probably old news now.

About immigrants.
I had an Ethiopian man in the cbd on site trying to fix a leak in a complex – long story.
But the fellow is an orthodox Christian , something if a political person, who was tortured in Ethiopia for having had alternative political opinions. He is now in Australia a long distance runner. He was fasting yesterday on a stinking hot day on the steaming hot terrace mending the water ingress, etc. Today he tried his best also to work things out about the source of the leak.
Things are very complicated. He likes Australia very much. Yet his 70 year old mother is not interested in Australia as there is no social network. She goes to church daily in Ethiopia, and has a friendship network despite the political oppressions. Not possible in Australia. People do not always want to come here. The man himself lives in Tarneit yet does not know his next door neighbour. He is here in the hope that his children will be educated without being shot dead for their political beliefs. I find it difficult to balance the realities of cultural wealth with that of economic and political and personal security. I seriously wonder.

And rosie,
was I mistaken in understanding that you had said that, really, all five of the congregants in the cathedral did not have half a face, that is, were NOT wearing masks , during Mass?
Do tell if otherwise.
(Just in case you think it that ‘ during’ Mass is distinct form lining up to receive holy communion when half a face will not permit receiving the body and the blood of the one crucified – no, having a face is having what Levinas calls the face which says ‘ thou shalt not kill’. )
Doing away with the face is doing away with the commandment. That commandment is in the face of teh other.
