  1. I’ve been reflecting on that during the past couple of days. All those crazy alliances and conflicting aims. No one wanting to back down and say, enough! Defending either completely fabricated positions or nothing at all.

    Not only that, the war plans of all sides had been drawn up for years. All it needed was one “accident” and the whole thing was primed to go off like a line of cascading dominoes that not even the key actors could stop.

    Not that I think Ukraine is the harbinger of WWIII, but the same fatal combination of stupidity and arrogance (and colonialism) hangs about the Western political class atm.

  3. How some people stay in business is beyond me.

    I’ve got a series of E mails here – the basic thrust is “(Due to an error on our part), We have overpaid you (several thousands ) of dollars. We want the money back, either by return cheque, or bank transfer within 48 hours.”

    I don’t think that many people understand that it has only been a few decades in the West we have had freedom, you only have to look at WW2 & prior that humans were treated as expendable & we are getting back to that.

We have a Covid case here now and everybody is in face shields and stuff. I just have a laugh with them. I expect I will get it sooner or later, as was always going to be the case.

  8. Struth demonstrates a cartoonish level of misunderstanding of very many things. Even more cartoonish than Grigory or our new resident Glowie.

    Perhaps he would be better served by sticking to his WEF Globalist-Nazi-Communist-Pooftah-Pansy Plots and schemes about nebulous and nefarious social credit schemes being snuck up under innocent and unconsenting Slavic nations’ bottoms. You know, stuff where outright confabulation and hysterical hysteria can be expounded upon at length, relatively unaffected by that meany-poobum reality…

    The takeover of Cricket Australia by the millenial kiddies in the national side won’t end well.

  13. Just like the fact that when we whistle up the Half-Yearly Report for Aurizon, the single largest rail freight operator in the country, partocularly the ‘Bulk Division,’ in which Struth’s assertions about ‘General Freight’ sit. It would seem that there is not a single section in the document that lists SuBsIdIEs paid by governments to this company to run on any State or Federal railway track in Australia that it does not own.

    And for those who wish to read the report for themselves:

    https://www.aurizon.com.au/-/media/project/aurizon/files/investors/documents-and-webcasts/2022/2022-interim-results/1hfy2022-appendix-4d.pdf

    Remember that Aurizon is legally required to report all its incomings and outgoings to the ASX, the ATO and its investors.

    And governments are never particularly good being sneaky.

  34. In 1976 the CIA was concerned about a fundamental change in world weather patterns:

    ‘In a study recently made public, the CIA concluded:

    “Leaders in climatology and economics are in agreement that a climatic change is taking place and that it has already caused major economic problems throughout the world.

    “As it has become more apparent to the nations around the world that the current trend is indeed a long-term reality, new alignments will be made among nations to ensure a secure supply of food resources.”’

    They were predicting a worldwide decline in food production due to the onset of a little ice age.

    The short priced favourite is “never, it will have to wait at least for three or four more state elections till someone replaces him”.
    “If the rest of the world goes overwhelmingly no vaxx mandate, tourism and business might force him to do it” is at pretty short odds.

  44. I don’t recall making any comments about the convoy.

    You and your little sidekicks made a distinct point of mocking Struth’s part in the Gillard era Convoy to Canberra as some sort of failure, back when you were under six month house arrest by Victoria’s abusive surrogate father and were lashing out at Struth because he wasn’t.

    Also him being a truck driver, tour operator, etc.

    I don’t think you particularly mean it, aside from the usual Victorian sneering. It’s obviously just the only thing you’ve got that you think will cut him, because you all can’t seem to lay a glove on him generally and it drives you mad that even a posse of four, five or six people from The Smart State tag teaming around the clock for close to two years generating tens of thousands of comments about him, get casually outdone by a qlder LOSER turning up and trolling you for a day a month.

    Deeper I think it’s redirected rage at a feeling of impotence driven by being trapped in a one party machine state which allows for zero deviation from the orthodoxy in anyway, directed against someone who’s actually pretty free and does as he likes and regularly smirks at you’ll about it.

  48. Andy Ngo uploaded this today….this is a trans ideology critic invited to give a talk at the University of North Texas a few days ago and he’s shut down…

    Andy Ngo describes what ensued as follows..

    At the University of North Texas in Denton on March 2, 2022, far-left activists shut down the Young Conservatives of Texas event featuring the father who lost custody of his child over objections to the child’s transgender diagnosis. The radicals pounded on the table and shouted, “F— these fascists” over and over to Jeffrey Younger. Younger is currently running as a Republican candidate for the Texas House.

    Younger and Kelly Neidert, the conservative student organizer, were eventually evacuated from the event by law enforcement but they were surrounded by far-left extremists outside the building. In the mayhem and desperate evacuation, one of the far-left protesters was hit by a police vehicle, though a university spokesperson said there was no reported serious injuries.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiD0AWdb9wE

    A few points….

    1. The Marxist ferals in the video (and there’s no other word to describe them) are Maoists, there’s zero difference. I’m reminded of pictures and film of China during the Cultural Revolution.

    2. This is the rotten state of universities today across the West (it’s happening here in Oz). It happened back in 2018 to Bettina Arndt when she tried to give a talk at Sydney University, I had a friend who attended that event and it wasn’t a pleasant experience.

    3. This is the absolutely rotten state of the West today.

    4. The progressive far-left want to shut down, silence and eliminate all dissent, they will stop at nothing to do it and they’re getting away with it.

    5. It isn’t pretty…is it? Actually, truth be told, it’s sickening.

    6. When I see footage such as this, I struggle to defend western societies because, as far as I’m concerned, it’s a microcosm of what’s wrong in the West and how the West is slowly and surely committing suicide. Maybe, as I wrote in a comment above, I’m too pessimistic but how can you not be when you view that footage by Andy?

    Finally, transwomen aren’t women and transmen aren’t men.

    One of the risks was snap lockdowns, that never happened despite France peaking at over 15 million cases.
    The other potential snag was testing positive covid and being forced into isolation. Didn’t happen either.
    Minor contretemps with paperwork and, as it turned out baseless fear of the unknown negotiating internal EU borders but it has been fantastic, in hindsight I’d have done a couple of things differently. Shrug.
    What I did do, was avoid taking a single guided tour, especially one on a bus. Can’t stand them, only ever did one in Bordeaux, ghastly.

    Well, none.

    That link goes to a piece in something called National File, which is an rsrsrrs-level ‘Researcher X has written many articles, and said in a Zoom meeting’ type of thing. Further adding to its credibility, or lack thereof is the article right next to it on that site. It is an appeal to send money to Ukraine.

    That article also has a link to the full Pfizer documents (previously linked here) which includes NINE PAGES of tightly printed potential side effects of their vaccine. According to Thomas Renz the risk/benefit ratio is this product is 12:1 – you are 12 times more likely to die of it that of Covid. It should never have been approved.

    The obscurity of the site is beside the point. At least they’re reporting it. Just trying holding your breath until the MSM does.

    As a general rule, you don’t actually live somewhere and not know how to spell it.

    It’s not a typo. Look at where the (i) and (e) keys are. You just don’t know. Or, you haven’t lived there at all – because people who live (or have lived) in places like Coonabarabran, Tallangatta or Murtoa know how to spell them. Moonee Ponds is not a high bar.

    Don’t start a rant about how it’s not important, because it is.

  62. I was often flown first class around the place to conduct tours all over Australia and ran tours that actually ran all over Australia.
    From Melbourne.
    SCo MO fucked the lot, basically.

    So, from August 2018 it went downhill.

    I thought you were in Alice Springs then. That’s what you were saying at the time. Running tour buses for overseas old people (boomers), who you were ‘educating’. About the real Australia, or somesuch.

    Huh. Maybe not.

    Anyway, if I wanted to twist the knife I’d also draw another Lizzie comparison to your flying first class around the place. Often. Apparently.

    As of 15 December 2021, the City of Hobart has introduced a policy that requires all staff, contractors, volunteers, elected members and visitors to staffed premises who are aged 17 years and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to enter the premises.

    While proof of vaccination status is no longer required upon entry, visitors are asked to comply with this policy.

    Is it just me or is that a statement that it is OK to come on in and nobody is going to ask you for your papers.

    Yes, it will be entirely vote driven.
    But it will be based on whether 50.1% of Victorian voters are still in a state of panic, believing they’ll die a hideous death if an unvaxxed person is allowed into a cafe (as well as into supermarkets, public transport, retail etc as they already are…), or are neo-Nazis who believe that unvaxxed should be punished for not obeying the government’s wishes, or both.
    And, I’m afraid to say, I think there’ll be well over that percentage.

    To the commenter this Wednesday who recommended a teaspoon of Vegemite for cramps.
    It’s worked.

    You were deficient in some B groups. My last order from iHerb included lithium orotate(wonderful dreams, good for brain) but instead I received a B complex. I had avoided using it because I also take benfotiamine, a potent form of thiamine. I started using it though and there seemed to be a beneficial effect. So I am left to wonder, and am not surprised it might be true, that the RDA for B vits is too low.

    Perhaps, but cramps only occur for a few days after eating Chicken, so Chicken mustn’t be a complete food.

    The RDA for everything, apart from Vitamin A, is way too low.
    Never trust Government with your health.

    But why vegemite Ed?

    Can’t answer that, but here’s a guess:
    Vegemite isn’t particularly digestible, it coats the lining of the gut, blocking adsorption of nutrients [and some antinutrients, obviously] from the Chyme.

    It’s loaded with that poison SALT? You are a contradictory entity.

    You’re correct about Salt being a poison, but it’s the only thing that makes Vegemite edible.
    The myth that Salt prevents Cramps is just that, a myth.
    There’s enough salt in Beef and Lamb to easily supply any Salt requirement, but chemical salt can’t be processed by the Kidneys.

    It was never on fire. I believe, like Chernobyl a week earlier, it will be protected by both Russian and Ukranian personnel.

    I suspect that one of the things that ended any prospect of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe was Chernobyl. After that, the unreality of conducting large scale operations, using copious numbers of hyper velocity APFSDS rounds, became quite clear to all concerned. In Ukraine, even a limited number of reactors constrains operations, and forces both sides to cooperate to avoid a major disaster.

  99. ‘I forgive but I won’t forget’: Mehdi and Adnan taste freedom, but not in Australia
    Bianca Hall
    By Bianca Hall
    March 4, 2022 — 4.22pm

    “I want to take a walk,” Mehdi Ali said. “By myself. Go as far as I can. That’s the first thing I’m going to do.”

    Such were the simple hopes of the 24-year-old, who has lost more than a third of his young life to Australia’s punitive detention system.

    When he spoke to The Age and the Herald in January, freedom for Mr Ali and his cousin, 25-year-old Adnan Choopani, seemed unimaginable. Now, after walking out of the Park Hotel in Melbourne’s inner-north, which served as their prison, they are free – in name at least.

    The men, both Iranian nationals, were just 15 and 16 when, in July 2013, they sought safety and protection in Australia. Their boat arrived just three days after former prime minister Kevin Rudd signed a deal with Papua New Guinea to resettle refugees in that country, declaring: “as of today, asylum seekers who come here by boat without a visa will never be settled in Australia”.

    Despite having been found to be refugees under the UN Convention in 2014, and therefore owed Australian protection, the teenagers spent almost nine years in detention – sent first to Christmas Island and then to Nauru. They were evacuated to Australia on emergency medical grounds in 2019, and spent almost two years locked in motels.

    Late on Thursday, the cousins flew to the US under a resettlement deal struck between Malcolm Turnbull and Barack Obama in 2016

    Mr Choopani thanked the US government for its generosity in resettling the pair.

    “Australia torture [was] designed to break me, but I am more determined and more resilient today. We won this battle because we choose to be a warrior, and you choose to be a bully coward in life. I forgive but I won’t forget.”

    Mr Ali said he could not be truly happy until his friends in detention were also released. “It’s not freedom until we are all free,” he said.

    Dozens of men remain detained at the Park Hotel, which is part of a network of motels, hospitals and other community facilities designated as an “alternative place of detention”.

    In September, the last time the government’s “monthly” statistics were updated, 103 men and women were detained in APODs. Another 11,542 people who arrived in Australia by boat after Mr Rudd’s 2013 declaration were living in the community on temporary visas.

    For those who remain left behind at the Park Hotel, there is joy for their friends’ release and despair at their own stasis.

    Ismail Hussein rarely leaves his room these days. He sleeps day and night, taking sleeping tablets in a vain hope to speed up the passage of time. On Friday, he counted five days since he had stepped outside his room.

    “I lost already a third of my life in detention,” the 30-year-old Somali national said. “All the hopes, all the dreams, all the ambitions that I had are gone now. Even if I got freedom today, I don’t think I would ever recover from this now. My brain is damaged.”

    His window does not open to the fresh air outside. After years of detention, his mental health crumbled on Manus Island, and he was rushed to Australia with kidney and bladder issues, PTSD and high blood pressure. His attention span is now so shot that he cannot watch a movie for more than 10 minutes. All he does is sleep, and lie on his bed.

  107. A lot of the shit that’s gone down in America, places like Portland, has been horrifying to say the least. A Cassie says, it’s like the Red Guards in China in the 60s. Another similarity is both are/were establishment driven. Mao set off the cultural revolution as a distraction from the failure of the great leap forward. In the US it is to counter the populist revolt. If you don’t like what’s been done to the US over the last 60 years, you get beaten up and risk losing your job.

    I reckon there is a fair bit of truth about this.

    Sending young political operatives to observe the “American Elections” has been going on for years, and all the “tricks of the trade” have been spread worldwide.

    The “Kevin 07” campaign was straight out of the American Democrat playbook. As were people like Richard Torbay in New England (since disappeared with zero consequences, just like Bruce Wilson).

    If the infiltration has gone as far as “buttfuck” Northern New South Wales, it’s a fair bet that the US is full of these fuckers.

    You go North from Melbourne along the M34 Hume Highway, taking the exit for Seymour (C384 Goulburn Highway) and turning left.

    You drive about 10km until the entry for Puckapunyal Barracks appears on the Right. You turn into the gatehouse, and if the site is open for public viewing, you will be directed to turn left at the end of the boulevarde, then right at the shop and services.

    Assuming Struth your intrepid coach pointer who knows EvErYtHiNk about Victoria hasn’t managed to peanut his busload of tourists down the Range Entry road by not turning Right, he will come to the end of the road in about 300m. The Parade Ground will be on his Right, the Museum on his Left, and the Communications Wing just beyond the Museum.

    Visit the place if you get the chance, Military Cats. If you’re lucky, the old blokes will have their Centurion out for a run. 🙂

  115. Arsonist responsible for Alfreton Park and Shepherd’s Bush Reserve fires spared further time in detention
    Headshot of Shannon Hampton

    A teenage arsonist who deliberately lit two blazes in Perth’s northern suburbs that threatened lives, homes and a school on New Year’s Day — boasting “I did that” on Snapchat videos — has been spared further time in detention and was ordered to undergo mandatory counselling to address an apparent “obsession” with fire.

    The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, first used a cigarette lighter to set fire to bushland at Alfreton Park in Duncraig, with strong winds pushing the blaze towards Glengarry Primary School and putting it under threat of burning down.

    An hour later, the teen went to Shepherd’s Bush Reserve in Kingsley and again used a lighter to start another bushfire, which quickly became out-of-control and threatened numerous homes.

    The teen was arrested a short time later after he was seen running from the scene, with another 16-year-old confronting him, finding the lighter and calling police.

    Police seized the teen’s phone and uncovered video footage of the blaze which he sent on Snapchat boasting “I did that”.

    In Perth Children’s Court last week, the teen pleaded guilty to arson offences and was sentenced to a 12-month term of detention, however the president of the court, Judge Hylton Quail made the “line ball call” to allow him to serve it in the community.

    Defence lawyer Melissa Sandars said the decision to light the fires was an “impulsive” one and that he had no idea that the fire, particularly the second one, would escalate so quickly.

    The first fire burnt 5000sqm of bushland while the second blaze burnt 50,000sqm, with firefighters from several stations taking up to four hours to get the fire under control.

    Ms Sandars said the teen had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder which had gone un-medicated because of adverse side-affects which had led to him acting impulsively and lacking consequential thinking.

    She said the teen came from a loving family and that his 39 days in Banksia Hill Detention Centre — which has made headlines recently for its “inhumane” conditions — had been “very difficult” and had left him “traumatised”.

    Here’s a tip. If life in juvenile detention is “very difficult” and leaves him “traumatised” isn’t that the best argument for not being sent there, in the first place?

    My sniffing around the internet thingie today found that Georgia and Moldova have applied for urgent EU entry. I figure they regard NATO membership a little to pyrophoric and that EU membership would be not quite as inflammatory.

    Also Kazakhstan may be sending tanks to Ukraine, and Lukashenko has ordered the Belarus Army to enter Ukraine but his general staff are dragging their heels. Plus the Black Sea fleet is on the move, possibly for a landing in Russian client state Transdniester or west of Odessa. Somebody has mined Odessa harbour too, since a neutral merchie hit a mine and sank.

    As with everything right now the signal to noise ratio is abysmal so I don’t know if any of this is true.

    Irrelevant. NASA ain’t going to the Moon anytime soon.

    Finally, we know production costs for SLS and Orion, and they’re wild. (2 Mar)

    Appearing before a House Science Committee hearing on NASA’s Artemis program, Martin revealed the operational costs of the big rocket and spacecraft for the first time. Moreover, he took aim at NASA and particularly its large aerospace contractors for their “very poor” performance in developing these vehicles.

    Martin said that the operational costs alone for a single Artemis launch—for just the rocket, Orion spacecraft, and ground systems—will total $4.1 billion. This is, he said, “a price tag that strikes us as unsustainable.” With this comment, Martin essentially threw down his gauntlet and said NASA cannot have a meaningful exploration program based around SLS and Orion at this cost.

    Dunno where all that money is going. Maybe they’re spending it on diversity programs. Meanwhile Atlas V ain’t going to the Moon either, since the Russians have ceased selling the rocket engines it needs.

    Russia Halts Rocket Engine Supply To US As ISS Partnership Threatened (4 Mar)

    United Launch Alliance (ULA), a joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin, uses Russian RD-180 engines to power Atlas V launch vehicle’s main propulsion systems.

    Rogozin said Russia had delivered 122 of the RD-180 engines to the US since the 1990s, and about 98 have been used. He said Russia would no longer service the remaining 24 engines, adding that plans to supply the US with an “additional 12 RD-181 engines in 2022-2024” can no longer be fulfilled.

    Maybe NASA can go back to reaching out to muslims instead.

  146. From yesterdays Paywallion:

    The Mocker muses on how Jane Caro, candidate for the Reason Party, would introduce herself to the Senate if she were elected:

    As an acclaimed novelist, writer, social commentator, public speaker, and Walkley Award winner, I would normally have no trouble in preparing my first speech as senator, especially one concerning my favourite subject. But a time limit, not to mention modesty, precludes me from listing all my achievements.

    I say to you my being elected is a sign that conservatism’s influence is waning. It is time for senators and MPs to listen to Australians, and by that I mean real Australians. Let us heed the wise words of those who appear on The Drum as well as Q&A, let us pay serious attention to the speakers at writers’ festivals, let us respect the wisdom of human rights commissioners. And let us read the room, by which I mean Twitter.

    To use one of my oft-repeated expressions, I am existentially terrified of climate change. As one who has more experience than most in seeing the planet from a commercial airline, I have seen first-hand the effects of climate change, and it distresses me greatly. For the sake of our children, Australia must reduce its carbon emissions, but instead government sides with the big emitters, particularly the coal and fossil fuel industries. These are the thoughts that preoccupy me as I travel in our Toyota Landcruiser VX from our North Shore home to our farm in the Upper Hunter.

    I come to this chamber with an open mind, one free of preconceived ideas. I only wish everyone in this country had my attitude. It troubles me to see in this place an Australian flag, which I associate with racism. As I have observed on social media, I assume people who fly the flag outside their homes are racist. In fact I said in 2015 that Australia is more racist than South Africa was during the apartheid era. I have lost count of the number of times I have said I am ashamed of this country. As you can understand, it was an exceedingly difficult decision on my part to accept an Order of Australia in 2019, but ultimately my sense of civic duty overrode my misgivings.

    It is my fervent hope that Australia will one day be a secular democracy. I stand by my opinion that we live in a “soft theocracy” given we subsidise religious schools, which by nature discriminate. My tolerant nature and open mind are such that I have a deep suspicion of parents who do not send their children to public schools.

    I myself am a product of the public education system, and without the skills it taught me I would not have won a Walkley Award. Private schools, on the other hand, foster elitism, privilege, and intolerance. As I wrote in 2018, I think the Tax Office should audit all parents with a low taxable income who send their children to private schools.

    I hope my fellow senators and the Australian people appreciate the enormous sacrifice I have made in standing for public office, something that compelled me to renounce my British citizenship. Previously I had called for the Constitution to be changed to accommodate people in my situation, but the government ignored me. I suspect it was because I was a woman, or that the prejudice against British migrants is still a factor. To them I say the stereotype of the whingeing Pom who complains incessantly about Australia is an outdated notion.

    Among the many skills I bring to this place is my expertise in communications and a gift for words. As I wrote on Facebook when announcing my intention to run for the Senate, “It’s time to get shit done and stop electing governments who don’t believe in governments”. Did I mention I am a Walkley Award winner?

    Fred Pawle

    The Reason Party has decided Jane Caro represents its best chance of securing a NSW Senate seat in the forthcoming federal election. I can only assume its nomenclature is analogous to that of a despot third world country which has the adjective ‘Democratic’ in its official title. In other words, it is anything but.

    Nonetheless Caro has a high profile, thanks to her remarkable capacity for self-promotion and her ability to confidently deliver an opinion about anything, regardless of how little she knows about the subject. When called out on her ignorance, her usual response is to claim her critics are motivated by misogyny and sexism. Like many faultfinders, she quickly resorts to victimhood when her hypocrisy is exposed.

    Her reaction to the election result in 2019 is a case in point. “Well, Australia may be f..ked and the whole planet not far behind but I am at the best, most brilliant and cool wedding I have ever been too (sic),” she tweeted late on election night. “So I shall just dance & get pissed & stick two rude fingers up to the truculent turds who voted to turn backwards.” And then tweeting again for good measure: “I wish I was a New Zealander”.

    To Caro’s dismay, many Australians wished the same, some even offering to fund her migration across the ditch provided she not return. Writing in the Sydney Morning Herald two days later, her reaction was most revealing. Saying only she had “sent a couple of ill-advised tweets,” she complained of being called an “absolute bitch” in response.

    “But I don’t tell you this to evoke sympathy,” she added. No, of course not. Notably, she did not apologise for her own conduct, despite having insulted half the nation. Want to see these tolerance luminaries for what they really are? All it takes is a skinful.

    But in one respect Caro has advanced gender equality, something central to her policies. She has demonstrated that women can be as vain, pompous, and obnoxious as any man. And while it would be a big mistake for any government to disregard the voices of women, one thing should be remembered. Refusing to take women seriously and refusing to take Jane Caro seriously are vastly different things.

    Swine flu was the trigger for the global guidelines being set and largely put in place before covid.

    From what I read it was a little too fatal too fast to get the spread it needed to be a massive menace.
    I also seem to recall either swine or avian flu ( possibly MERS) had a variant which was massively deadly in a very short period of time which really put the wind up a lot of people.

  156. Cats are very efficient killers no doubt. I came on a feral one the size of a small dog in the spinifex while out mustering during my brief flirtation with living on the land. Anything living out there is pretty bad arse.

  157. Thanks to an Aussie Armour Officer having a close friendship with the ARVN General whose forces captured it from the NVA).

    My understanding is that’s how the Museum came by the Chinese tank, but it’s forty years since I’ve been in the Museum.

  158. Till the subdivision is approved when you want to sell up ( not you of course Zulu).

    The local Shire Council, here, used to run seminars on “How to manage a smallholding.” Make sure you have good firefighting plant, make sure your firebreaks are in good order, don’t piZZ off back to Perth, after the weekend, and leave your rubbish burning..” Said seminars were discontinued after being labeled “patronizing.”

  159. Pressure to have a vaccination is exactly the same as pressure to have a mastectomy is exactly the same as the the terror/holdomor/shoah.

    I never once have claimed to be in favour of mandates and passports but I doubt one person here who is vaccinated has not ‘taken advantage’ of their so-called passport.
    I’ve read a lot of predictions here, mostly wrong, many convinced even in December 2021 we were heading to January 2022 lockdowns, that international travel for the hoi polloi was over forever etc.
    All this vitriol because I came to the conclusion, after doing my own research that getting vaccinated over getting earlier iterations of covid was a sensible decision.
    Subsequent government decisions to force people to vaccinate aren’t on me, strangely enough.
    My thoughts regarding Andrews might be wrong, my hopes regarding the next state election may be wrong.
    I’ll live with that.

  160. So far in this plandemic I have two heroes.

    Our local “Bowlo Manager” has been pretty heroic. Despite taking a couple of “jabs for the team”, he never even “asked the question” of a patron.

    Everyone had an “exemption” as far as he was concerned. When questioned by a few of the walk in “mask Nazis” in the club about other patrons not wearing masks or whatever, he had a simple response.

    “Yeah mate, I sighted it yesterday. Do you seriously expect me to ask them to produce it every time they walk up to the bar. You just showed me yours on your phone, so do you want me to ask you every time you want a beer? I can remember what you are drinking, so I think I can remember if you are vaxed or not”?

    End of story. He was fascinated by the amount of people who wanted to involuntary flash their COVID credentials to him on their phone. He didn’t give a shit, only to note that they were “sheeple” who might cause problems.

  161. I’ve been distracted from my proposed activities, decided to pop into the museum of Paris and discovered there is an antiquities section in the basement, thought I must have missed it on a prior visit but turns out it only opened in 2021.
    Some of it must have been upstairs at some stage, as seemed familiar, with maps and 3d scenes, it gives a good view of the little town that grew.

    Custard is confident in America.

    I am confident in them, Australia and the other Anglophones.

    Heck, I’m confident and hopeful to the point of cock-eyed optimisim in my home state of WA.

    And if I can be confident in that, then even Victoria and the Eastern Islands under St Jacinda of the Horseteeth have a chance… 🙂
