During the original AIDs epidemic there were people in San Francisco who were having dozens of sexual contacts a week with different people.

Using that as a yardstick Arsehole rather than aerosol isn’t out of the question.

Plus it’s general fluids as well. Particularly from sores.

And

Thinking it through, I’m amazed at how diabolically devious I (supposedly) am. Apparently, I mocked myself, argued with myself and tried to dox myself.

Apparently I’m six different blokes living in four cities.

Though reputation of West Australians (praised upthread) has taken a nosedive.

A treasured guest complained the bed in their room was lower in one corner (points to a castor wheel broken off – possible) & that the room was damp.

Stymied as to what could possibly make the room damp, it just isn’t possible.
Anyway, after moving the treasured guest to another room the engineering manager inspected the deficient room. Nothing to see.

The bed is level as a billiard table, and has all six legs.
No sign of damp whatsoever, the room is as dry as chips.

This type of incident happens more often than most laymen readily accept.

Brisket is best two ways – salted hot and left top seep a;; its blood out then boiled and eaten cold – salt meat as we used to have it forever We’d cut some of the fat off and have it on damper, with a touch of jam if we were lucky. Luxury!

The other way I know is the American way, a slow cooked roast with plenty of smoke and flavourings like dry rub.

Naturally, our way is best 🙂

I see they tried to pull a Grim Reaper 2.0 with monkey-pox.
What a disaster that was. Running adverts which basically said “Y’all gonna get it!” without bothering to explain how, then accusing the public of ignorance and bigotry when they became wary of sharing utensils etc.

Now to brisket:

1. Trim off all the visible fat.
2. Put the meat in a ziplock back with a generous amount of Texas BBQ marinade. Massage well.
3. Leave for at least 24 hours in the fridge. massaging occasionally to keep the meat coated.
4. Remove meat from fridge and allow to come to room temperature.
5. Wrap the meat tightly in at least two layers of foil.
6. Cook in the air fryer at 150deg for at least two hours.
7. Partially unwrap meat at the top, and cook another hour at 150.
8. Open the foil right up and cook for 30 minutes at 180deg.
9. Allow to stand for 20 minutes before slicing across the grain.

Serve on rye bread with sauerkraut, cheese and a generous dollop of German mustard. Brown in a frying pan. (Cook in a sandwich press if preferred.)

Joy.

We know this by now. I’m just posting it as an intro to the meat of the piece in the WSJ.

San Francisco experienced a moderate earthquake Tuesday as liberal Democrats revolted against woke, coercive progressivism and overwhelmingly recalled three school board members. The political seismic waves are rippling across the country, potentially signaling a bigger quake in November.

This is the losing margin.

The school board recall was a landslide, with Alison Collins (79%), Gabriela Lopez (75%) and Faauuga Moliga (72%) getting soundly defeated. Successful recalls are rare, and it takes real effort to lose by 3 to 1 or 4 to 1. San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Shamann Walton dismissed the recall as driven by “closet Republicans and most certainly folks with conservative values in San Francisco, even if they weren’t registered Republicans.”

Yep, there are Republicans under every rock.

And here’s the tiny closet.

That must be some closet. Republicans make up only 6% of the city’s registered voters. More than 85% of voters backed Joe Biden in November 2020. The recall was a populist groundswell supported by fed-up parents and liberals,

6% of registered voters. LOl.

Asians are now just white supremacists dressed in kimonos or whatever.

Asians make up more than half of Lowell students, which the board’s progressives believe is unfair. An old unearthed tweet by Ms. Collins accusing Asians of using “white supremacist thinking” exposed her closet prejudice. After getting stripped of her senior board positions, Ms. Collins sued the school district and colleagues for $87 million.

Cow Farts and Burps to Be Taxed for Climate Change in Backdoor Meat Tax (9 Jun)

In an apparent backdoor effort to tax meat, the burps and farts of cattle and sheep are set to be taxed by the leftist government of New Zealand in a bid to, they claim, save the world.

The left-wing Labour government of Jacinda Ardern has drafted proposals to levy taxes against farmers for the methane emissions produced by cows and sheep in what would be the world’s first green tax on livestock.

“There is no question that we need to cut the amount of methane we are putting into the atmosphere, and an effective emissions pricing system for agriculture will play a key part in how we achieve that,” the government’s climate change minister James Shaw said per The Telegraph.

As a chemist I think this stuff is hilarious. It was pretty obvious from CSIRO’s Cape Grim data that methane oxidizes in the atmosphere very rapidly. Methane levels had plateaued, then started to rise again just after fracking was invented. On top of that methane has no more effect than CO2 because the water cycle finesses both. I’m sad for Kiwi farmers, though, who are government by unscientific lunatics.

This is what MM wrote and said about gun control in the US. I don’t agree with some of it as I think the red flag point would be open to abuse. However, it’s not outlandish leftwing crap as the ridiculous incel implies.

“There is a difference between control and responsibility. The first is a mandate that can infringe on our right; the second is a duty that will preserve it. There is no constitutional barrier to gun responsibility. Keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous people is not only the responsible thing to do, it is the best way to protect the Second Amendment. We can do both.”

McConaughey lays out a four-step plan to increase gun responsibility, proposing background checks, an age requirement of 21 to purchase assault rifles, Red Flag Laws, and a national waiting period for the purchase of assault rifles.

McConaughey writes that “to find common ground” on the issue, both sides “are going to have to answer the call and reach for the higher ground of our collective responsibility.” He says “business as usual isn’t working.”

Here is his letter to the Austin American-Statesman in full:

I am a father, the son of a kindergarten teacher, and an American. I was also born in Uvalde, Texas.

That’s why I’m writing this.

I believe that responsible, law-abiding Americans have a Second Amendment right, enshrined by our founders, to bear arms. I also believe we have a cultural obligation to take steps toward slowing down the senseless killing of our children. The debate about gun control has delivered nothing but status quo. It’s time we talk about gun responsibility.

There is a difference between control and responsibility. The first is a mandate that can infringe on our right; the second is a duty that will preserve it. There is no constitutional barrier to gun responsibility. Keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous people is not only the responsible thing to do, it is the best way to protect the Second Amendment. We can do both.

Depraved acts of violence, with guns as the weapon of choice, are ripping apart families, tearing at people’s faith, and shredding the fabric of our society. We have an epidemic of indiscriminate mass shootings, of parents burying their children, of inaction, and buck-passing. Saving the unnecessary loss of lives is not a partisan issue.

The need for mental health care, school safety, the prevalence of sensationalized media coverage, and the decaying state of American values are all long-term societal factors that must be addressed, but right now, we don’t have the luxury of time. We need to focus on corrections and countermeasures that can also and immediately reduce the gun violence tragedies that have become too common in our country.

We need to make the lost lives matter. Our leaders must make bipartisan compromises on a few reasonable measures to restore responsible gun ownership in our country.

I believe:

1) All gun purchases should require a background check. Eighty-eight percent of Americans support this, including a lot of responsible gun owning Texans. … I’ve met them. Roof, who killed nine people in a black church in South Carolina in 2015, got his pistol without a completed background check due to a legal technicality. The system failed. Gun control activists call this a loophole. I call it incompetence.

2) Unless you are in the military, you should be 21 years old to purchase an assault rifle. I’m not talking about 12-gauge shotguns or lever-action hunting rifles. I’m talking about the weapon of choice for mass murderers, AR-15s. The killer in my hometown of Uvalde purchased two AR-15s for his eighteenth birthday, just days before he killed 19 students and two teachers. He obeyed the law. Had the law been different, perhaps I wouldn’t be writing this today.

3) Red Flag Laws should be the law of the land. These measures, which are already in effect in 19 states and Washington, D.C., empower loved ones or law enforcement to petition courts to temporarily prevent individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others from purchasing or accessing firearms. These laws must respect due process, judicial review, and hold account individuals who may abuse such laws.

4) We need to institute a national waiting period for assault rifles. Individuals often purchase weapons in a fit of rage, harming themselves or others. Studies show that mandatory waiting periods reduced homicides by 17 percent. Gun suicides account for the majority of U.S. gun deaths. A waiting period to purchase an assault rifle is an acceptable sacrifice for responsible gun owners when it can prevent a mass shooting crime of passion or suicide.

Integrating gun safety training, safe storage proposals, and bolstering school safety are also beneficial, but are not government-only solutions. Companies, private organizations, and responsible gun owners have a big role to play.

I want to be clear. I am not under the illusion that these policies will solve all of our problems, but if responsible solutions can stop some of these tragedies from striking another community without destroying the Second Amendment, they’re worth it.

This is not a choice between guns or no guns. It’s the responsible choice. It’s the reasonable choice. It’s a quintessentially American choice: Where I have the right to be me, you have the freedom to be you, and we have the responsibility to be US.

To find common ground on this issue, both sides are going to have to answer the call and reach for the higher ground of our collective responsibility.

Business as usual isn’t working. “That’s just how it is” cannot be an excuse. The heinous bloodshed of innocent people cannot become bearable. If we continue to just stand by, we’re living a lie. With every right there comes a duty.

For ourselves, our children, and our fellow Americans—we have a duty to be responsible gun owners. Please do yours and protect the Second Amendment through gun responsibility. It’s time for real leaders to step up and do what’s right, so we can each and all just keep livin’.

Do you have a handy link to a potted explanation of this Bruce?

Wally – it’s an analysis from first principles since my primary field is water chemistry and thermodynamics. Here’s the explanation I put up in May. No one has pointed out any flaws, and it fits with other stuff like the Svensmark hypothesis.

In short the long wave energy which would be causing global warming is locked up as latent heat of vaporization, then released to space in the upper atmosphere above most of the CO2 in the air column below.

The climateers’ models notoriously can’t get cloud cover right, which is a tell that they either don’t correctly model the water cycle or they avoid doing so because it would pull down their house of cards.

I can’t point to an article in the scientific press as I’ve not seen one. The science though is incontrovertible since it is just the well-known physical chemistry of liquid and gaseous water.

And in Teal News…

“Teals ignite gas war with claims of profiteering

Climate 200-backed teal independents have maintained calls for higher 2030 emissions ­reduction targets despite the ­energy crisis, and called on ­Anthony Albanese to restrict LNG exports while phasing out coal and gas from the electricity grid as soon as possible.

Independent MPs Zali Steggall, Allegra Spender, Kylea Tink and Zoe Daniel on Thursday ­attacked gas companies and ­accused LNG exporters of paying “very little corporate tax” and reaping “huge profits” at the expense of Australian energy users.

The teal independents, who want to accelerate the transition to renewables and urged against new incentives for coal and gas, backed in the ambitious medium-term emissions they took to the May 21 election.

Despite the gas sector contributing almost $500bn a year to the national economy and the ­crisis being blamed on offline coal-fired power stations, Ms Steggall said Labor should use a super-profits tax to fund household subsidies and make the NEM more efficient.

With coal and gas expected to be included in a draft Energy ­Security Board capacity mechanism to shore up investment in baseload generation, only West Australian teal Kate Chaney supported freeing up supply of gas and “possibly coal” in the short term. Ms Spender, who supports a 50 per cent 2030 emissions ­reduction target, said while gas would play a role over the next 10 years, “the direction has to be in renewables”.

Resources Minister Madeleine King said the government will ­urgently review the Australian Domestic Gas Security Mechanism, a trigger allowing it to force LNG exporters to put more gas into domestic reserves. Ms King said the gas trigger rules, due to expire on January 1, would be improved so the government can “ensure future supplies of gas”.

The ESB’s draft capacity mechanism, to be released in the next fortnight after energy ministers ordered a focus on investment incentives for renewables and storage technologies, is ­expected to feature coal as a short-term option. Under the mechanism, retailers would purchase energy contracts in advance to lock in supply and investment.

Ms Steggall said increasing the use of gas or coal would “exacerbate and prolong the underlying cause of this energy price crisis while failing to … put in place a solution”. “It would mean rewarding the fossil fuel companies for a problem of their own making, but with greater windfall,” the Warringah MP said.

Ms Daniel said the crisis should “not be used as cover for backsliding to extend the life of coal or gas as energy sources”.

“Nor should fossil fuel producers and suppliers be able to make huge windfall profits as a direct consequence of Vladimir Putin’s … war on Ukraine. If anything, it proves that we must move rapidly to develop and secure renewable energy and storage to protect our communities from the variables of global energy markets,” the Goldstein MP said.

Ms Spender, who said the government should be tougher on gas companies paying “very little corporate tax”, told The Australian that unlike solar, wind and batteries, coal and gas were “vulnerable to price spikes”. “The current ­energy crisis is a fossil fuel crisis. Renewable energy is the cheapest energy in the country right now,” the Wentworth MP said.

Oil and gas lobby group APPEA hit back at the independents, saying their claims “misrepresent our contribution and don’t reflect the way our tax system works”. Acting APPEA chief executive Damian Dwyer said the oil and gas industry “pays over $5bn a year in payments to all levels of government, totalling more than $150bn since the late 1980s”.

“These payments include PRRT collections, which have ­delivered over $40bn since its introduction and the latest budget shows these will rise by over $4bn over the next four years,” Mr Dwyer said. “The full scope of our economic contribution is far wider than just payments – employing tens of thousands of workers, delivering energy security to households and businesses and facilitating regional growth.”

Ms Tink, who won the previously safe Liberal seat of North Sydney, said failure to incentivise renewable energy over the past decade had fuelled the energy crisis. “We’ve paid too little attention to our nation’s energy security, letting exporters reap huge profits without protecting our own domestic supply,” Ms Tink said.

Ms Chaney, who claimed the blue-ribbon Perth seat of Curtin, said “the current perfect storm ­affecting gas prices may need to be addressed by freeing up supply of gas and possibly coal in the short term”. “This should not be used to justify a long-term ­increase in investment in fossil fuel operations,” she said.

Kooyong MP Monique Ryan blamed the Coalition for failing to plan for renewable energy alternatives and said “it is important to develop short-term solutions to the domestic energy crisis but that is no reason to revise the realistic emissions reduction targets that I support”.

Tasmanian independent ­Andrew Wilkie called for ­“immediate and strong federal government intervention”, including pulling the gas trigger.

Thanks Wentworth

In Here We Go, Here We Go, Here We Go news:

Usually the speeches of treasury secretaries are relatively bland, echoes of their political masters. But an address this week from Steven Kennedy was something quite different.

Kennedy said post-pandemic government spending will be higher than spending before COVID. Excluding temporary direct COVID support, payments as a share of GDP are expected to average 26.4 per cent in the coming decade, compared with 24.8 per cent in the decade before the pandemic.

“Most of the additional structural spending is driven by spending on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), aged care, defence, health and infrastructure. Further pressures exist in all these areas,” Kennedy said.

So, unavoidable massive increases in public spending – as prescribed by an unimpeachable senior public servant.
No way around it, apparently.

But how to pay for all this?

In the election campaign, Labor talked about finding savings from “rorts” in the Morrison government’s spending. But the magnitude of the task will go well beyond redirecting funds from Morrison waste.

Problematic for NDIS, where every ‘saving’ has a sad face on morning TV.

Ongoing review of the tax base and tax concessions will be important, Kennedy says.

Albanese’s election commitment was not to raise taxes, or have new ones. The only exception was to crack down on multinationals’ tax avoidance.

Pro Tip: Albo, don’t fret, pet. Kennedy is giving you the road map:

1) Finances are far worse than we thought due to [insert favourite externality];

2) The pain must be shared, and those who can must pay for those that can’t but still want nice things – it’s the Labor Way;

3) There is no alternative, My Government is acting on the advice of Senior Public Servants as we are forced to [insert exciting fiscal and taxing measures here].

Be of good cheer.

Activists Plan To Block Entrances And ‘Shut Down’ Supreme Court To Prevent Expected Roe v. Wade Ruling (9 Jun)

Protest organizing group Shut Down D.C. plans to block access to the Supreme Court in Washington on June 13.

In online meeting footage obtained by The Epoch Times, the group announced that it planned to seal off all three vehicle entrances to the court so justices wouldn’t be able to get in and announce a decision that might overturn Roe v. Wade.

So the announcement date is 13 Jun. It’ll be interesting to see if Roberts somehow overturned the (leaked) decision of the five conservative justices. Also interesting in light of the Kavanaugh assassination attempt and Garland’s refusal to enforce the law over the persecutive protests at their houses. Will these people use this protest as a way to take out the conservatives on the bench? The following is Surber’s blog article from yesterday:

COVID-19’s origins obscured by lack of Chinese data, says WHO panel

The World Health Organization says its latest investigation into the origins of COVID-19 was inconclusive, largely because data from China is missing, another blow to its years-long effort to determine how the pandemic began.

The report said no new information had been provided on the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 was introduced to humans through a laboratory incident, and “it remains important to consider all reasonable scientific data” to evaluate this possibility.

Reflecting the political wrangling that has dogged the drafting of the report, it includes a footnote outlining how members of the panel from Brazil, China and Russia disagreed that further studies were needed on the lab hypothesis…

A cynic might say that substantial BRI transfer payments to Russia and Brazil are in the works.

A new poverty emerges; Renewable Energy Poverty:

Locked out of solar, Rosemary found a green power deal. But advocates say they can be hard to navigate

As electricity prices rise, advocates like Gavin Dufty from the St Vincent de Paul Society are worried that people who can not install rooftop solar will be unfairly impacted by rising power costs.

Mr Dufty also worries that people who can not access solar could be left behind in the renewable energy transition and stuck with higher bills.

“It should be worth looking at a green power deal for all those people, [including] renters, low-income households that can’t afford to put solar on and they want to participate.”

It appears that, despite expectations, carbon-free electrons are not ‘too cheap to meter’:

“Some 100 per cent green is quite competitive to non-green products, some of the 100 per cent green are incredibly expensive — there’s a big range in price.

So, if I get this correctly, there is a tsunami of low-income folk gagging for “incredibly expensive” green electricity.
But cheap.

Sounds like a job for Government.

From the Courier Mail :

Queensland’s Police Commissioner has been called “a most unimpressive witness’’, who failed to properly consider the human rights of police before making Covid-19 vaccination directions.

“The Commissioner’s approach to the task which she was required to undertake prior to making the directions was an abject failure of public administration,’’ Dominic Villa SC told the Supreme Court.

Mr Villa was making final submissions in a civil trial on behalf of a group of seven police challenging the Commissioner’s vaccination directions, affecting 18,000 staff.

Another 54 police and 12 ambulance officers also are seeking to overturn mandatory Covid-19 vaccination directions in the trial.

Queensland Human Rights Commission is intervening, submitting that decision-makers were required to consider a number of human rights of employees before making such directions.

“The Commissioner’s regard for the human rights of those under her command was perfunctory,’’ Mr Villa told Justice Glenn Martin.

“Your honour would be entitled to find that the Commissioner regarded the entire human rights exercise as a box ticking exercise.”

Commissioner Carroll was cross-examined about her vaccination directions over two days last week.

“We submit it is breathtaking in its arrogance that the Commissioner did not give evidence in chief as to the reasons why she made the decisions or identify the material upon which she relied in making those decisions,” Mr Villa said.

He said the evidence showed that the Commissioner did not consider a Human Rights Compatibility Assessment document, prepared by Crown Law, until after she decided to make a September 7 vaccination direction.

Mr Villa said there was no rational justification for the vaccination mandate.

He said for the small number of police who objected to mandatory vaccination there were alternative measures that could achieve the same benefit, when there were already high rates of community and police vaccination.

Dan O’Gorman SC, for 54 police applicants in the legal challenge, said the Commissioner had not outlined her decision-making process in any detail.

Mr O’Gorman said circumstances had changed with the Omicron variant, and the Commissioner had an obligation to review her vaccination directions.

He said based on all the evidence, a mandatory vaccination direction was no longer of utility or could no longer be justified.

Dr Christopher Ward, for 12 ambulance officers, said there was no suggestion they were in greater risk of hospitalisation or death as a result of being unvaccinated than anyone in the community who visited restaurants, cafes, bus stations or cinemas.

He said their decision to remain unvaccinated had not affected their ability to do their jobs.

Dr Ward said the Queensland Ambulance Service Covid-19 double vaccination rate was more than 95.2 per cent, at the date of the latest direction affecting ambulance staff.

“So, we are dealing with 4.8 per cent at the highest of the entire service, let alone a lower proportion of the service who are in front facing roles,’’ Dr Ward said.

He said Omicron had peaked and any suggestion that the level of risk remained high was unfounded.

While the hearing was going on, anti-vaccination protesters, including police and a doctor, staged a demonstration outside the Supreme Court in George St on Thursday.

The hearing is continuing.

He’s usually cautious in what he says about such things, but not this time.

Losing a SCOTUS Justice to assassination & rapid insertion of a Biden choice onto the bench, that’s one conspiracy theory too far.

For that theory to hold water, you’d first have to see the White House & Fed govt allowing mobs to turn up at the homes of SCOTUS justices and there to unfiltered public conversation about killing one or more judges.

Now does the water vapour we exhale normally travel only a foot, or one to one and a half metres?

Rosie – The condensation travels only a foot or so. You see that yourself on a cold day.

Condensation is water droplets. It is not water vapour. Water vapour is gaseous H2O.

The report about the Italian multiple university study is that, yes, condensation is caught by a mask. That is scientifically feasible since the water droplets can be big enough to be retained, and also they can wet the hydrophilic fibres of the mask.

What then happens is the droplet containing the submicron size virus particles dries out rapidly: it converts from liquid water to water vapour. Water vapour will go straight through a mask for the same reason air does: they’re gases. The free virus will go through a mask because it is between 1 and 3% of the size of the holes in the mask, ie roughly the size of a soccer ball compared to a soccer goal.

As with a mask the same goes with condensation. After a foot or so the droplets containing the virus dry out because relative humidity is less than 100% and the surface area to volume ratio is huge. Drying out is so quick that the droplets have evaporated after a foot or so.

Whereupon a mask is useless against the now dried out virus particles.

I am explaining this in detail to show to you that I did not lie and that I was accurate scientifically. I suspect the problem is that I use terms scientifically (like “water vapour”) which you may think means something else.

Numerous studies show that masks are totally useless for viruses of this size. I think they’re useful for bacteria, which are about 100 times bigger, although again there’s a difference between theory and practice. We found this with HSEC in our smelter – the only way that actually stopped the guys breathing in 1-10 micron particles (ie. roughly bacteria-sized) was to issue them all with thousand dollar positive pressure Racal-style full face helmets with neck seals. That worked in the real world, nothing else did.

There has been significant recrimination of late on the blog in respect to the emerging vaccination injuries. Maybe I should not venture into this domain, but I will.

As many of you are aware, I have been vehemently opposed to the so called genetic vaccines from early 2021 when the initial reactions began to occur. At that time, with very little prior understanding of immunology, I threw myself into research into this field in order to come to some sort of comprehension of what we were dealing with. Naturally, it was not long before I came into contact with the work of so many “dissenting’ immunologists, vaccinologists, virologists etc such as Malone, VanDen Bossche, McCullough, Ioannidis, Bhakdi, Lawrie, Rose, Yeodon, Clancy and many, many others, including frontline Covid treating physicians like Pierre Kory, Malcolm Kendrick et al.

It has been an ongoing preoccupation for obvious reasons. Once I understood the history of the development of vaccines and the requirements for longitudinal clinical trials and research prior to release of vaccines I knew that something was terribly amiss in this response to the pandemic. It was also clear that while Prof. Kariko had certainly advanced mRNA research significantly in the years since Robert Malone first discovered the technology, over 25 years of research into a vaccine for corona viruses was still unfit for release.

While I realise I am a bit of an outlier in terms of the lengths I go to satisfy myself on such matters, it has astonished me how otherwise intelligent people blindly accepted the assurances of the medical technocracy, and especially Big Pharma, in spite of the accumulating evidence of vaccine injuries and the relatively low mortality rate for Covid in otherwise healthy people. One could go on and on about these reservations – and this has been done, of course, in this blog.

In the face of this, I find it difficult not to be resentful of the spite and derision levelled at the unvaccinated who have refused to submit to a process that, to them, seemed possibly fatal. On the other hand, I have the utmost sympathy for those who, in spite of their own reservations, were required to submit to vaccination to keep their employment and provide for their families. There is no question that these people should be supported.

As for those who chose to “take their chance” because they wanted to travel, go to the gym, go to restaurants and to the cinema, and to shop without restrictions….well….sorry……but you reap what you sow. Yes, of course I am distressed when I hear of the emerging illnesses and deaths (we have attended two funerals of friends in the last couple of weeks of deaths of “unknown causes”). And, of course, my greatest distress is waiting for notification of problems of my loved ones who have been vaccinated – grandkids whose school required it etc.

So, there it is. I would hope that we can all find it in our hearts to be compassionate. Believe me, I know how difficult these two years have been. It further upsets me that I am SO angry about the travel permits I, as an unvaccinated, had to get, the inability to get a haircut or buy household items. And I am angry that, even as the truth emerges, many are trying to exculpate themselves. I recently exploded in response to a newsletter from a Liberal think tank which claimed that “there was little initial evidence” about vaccine problems. I replied, “What about the bloody Great Barrington Declaration???” What about all the eminent virologists etc – including Nobel proize winners, who plaintively warned against the vaccines??? The writer responded, sheepishly, “You are right….”

Yes folks, I am bloody angry. But I am fond of all of you and wish you all well.

Truth is, and to illustrate how denialism works, good Catholics prefer to remain ignorant of the fact that the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, requires all volunteers be double jabbed. So, eg, a person can participate and sing in the congregation but not in a choir. But then, I suppose denialism could counter that a congregant could also sing, preferably in key, when the choir sings a motet or some such reflective piece. In short, it’s not over.

Future of Flames (Blair’s blog, 10 Jun)

Looks like we’ve got ourselves an old-fashioned lithium ion battery fire out Lake Macquarie way.

Here’s the story unpaywalled:

Fire and Rescue responding to two seperate structure fires in Lake Macquarie (9 Jun)

Six local Fire and Rescue crews rushed to the battery manufacturing facility on Munibung just after 1 o’clock to reports smoke was billowing from the roof.

Firefighters — equipped with breathing apparatus — entered the warehouse to search for the seed of the blaze. They’ve since contained the fire and have begun clearing the building of toxic smoke, utilising a gas detector to confirm all clear.

I think the smoke I saw was from the second fire the story mentions not the battery one. But it raises a fun question: are battery factories the new fireworks factories?
