“Marc Andreessen (one of the funders of Elon’s bid) has been vocal about clear community guidelines and for them to be applied consistently.
That is critical.”

Yes, consistency, which has been missing for the last four to five years, hence my post above. I also think progressives really began to think of Twitter as their own personal fiefdom, that they owned it, and if nothing else the Musk takeover has shattered that delusion.

we’re wondering aloud whether what follows his takeover is going to be substantively different from the previous owners.

Consistency would be one as mentioned by others, in terms of applying the rules equally.

What would you like to see? Be specific with some shortened examples.

No COVID Amnesty

From Armstrong Economics –

“The Atlantic wrote a piece about declaring pandemic amnesty. “We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID,” Emily Oster wrote. I will not forgive what was done and the permanent damage the COVID zealots caused to the global economy. This was not a simple misunderstanding – it was a deliberate plot to crush the economy and hand all power over to governments.

This goes for the right and left, although the right finally saw that what they were doing was wrong. Trump failed us by implementing Operation Warpspeed and distributing mass vaccines that were not properly tested. Big Pharma was granted full immunity because they knew the vaccines could present issues down the line. America had a strong economy before COVID lockdowns caused mass layoffs, supply shortages, and simply halted life as we once knew it.

Other countries had more severe restrictions, and many felt the need to flee their home country to avoid tyranny. I do not forgive the politicians who forced the masses to take a vaccine against their will simply to participate in society. The unvaccinated were demonized by the politicians who led the masses to believe that COVID was “a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” when that was a blatant lie. Those same politicians frequently broke their own rules because they knew they were baseless. I do not forgive the health agencies who promoted a false agenda and changed definitions and rules at whim. They forced us to cover our faces to simply walk outside despite knowing that masks did not work. I do not forgive the media who fueled the hysteria and banished anyone who questioned “the science.” The fear that spread across the globe was unwarranted.

There should be a trial to discover what actually happened in 2020. The virus’ origins remain a mystery, although it is widely accepted that it did not come about naturally. Children fell behind in school, small businesses closed forever, countless people lost their livelihoods, and mental health issues became more apparent. People were forced into quarantine camps like prisoners in some countries, while others diminished people to their QR codes that restricted their freedom of movement. People DIED.

Despite our current knowledge, governments have refused to let go of the emergency powers granted to them under COVID. How could they ask for forgiveness when this madness is ongoing?”

266,031,472 in the US have had least one shot of the mRNA injectables and 385,000 unexplained excess deaths so far which began after the rollout. The final death toll may not be know for years, since many are cancers that have yet to be discovered and the numbers are not slowing.

The virus has infected 97,329,787 and caused 1066351 deaths according to cdc. We have to take these figures with a grain of salt since many if not most infections are not reported and the cdc has lumped many dying with covid into the dying from covid bucket.

Early to draw comparisons but not out of the bounds of reality to suggest the injectable is closing in on the lethality of the virus and may even surpass it if we could get sensible numbers from the government.

This is good writing Zippy.

We can be critical of the forced immunisation programme without being a hysterical, rude lunatic.

I remember the Dan incident and was just as suspicious. Wouldn’t be surprised in the least if there was a Belinda Neal Iguanas moment there.

However where I had a whoa moment is when the Mayor of Townsville (A long time member of the ALP, apparently installed and gifted preselection a couple of times by the AWU faction) killed a motorcyclist in a traffic accident. Deja vu with Dan include irregularities in the investigation, no breath test, no blood tests etc but at least charges were laid. This time strong rumour is someone in the Police Ministers office was calling the district inspectors office shortly after the incident. The court bent over backwards to her lawyers demands and at best everyone thought she would get off but with lesser driving charges. What I am told was the amount of raised eyebrows even among silks up here was the acquittal on all charges. Young deceased guys family can’t sue. Hmm. However the point is how often does this happen when politicians are involved. Bet you it isn’t as uncommon as we’d like to think.

As for the poor kid from WA who was beaten to death. This will happen more unfortunately with bints like Stanley stirring the pot. I mentioned we needed leadership to calm this down last weekend, we’ve seen precious little of this, this week a parade of race baiting grifters have been throwing petrol on a fire. Now Stanley should know better with her background so either she is stupid or wilfully blind when in the communities, I’ll wager the latter. For context we have had a week where two suburbs on the northern beaches of Townsville have had repeated break ins/car thefts by said dysfunctional turds who know the judges won’t touch them. I have had a number of nights this week waking up to check the house when local dogs are barking at someone (distinct note to barking at the air).

Western Australia didn’t ‘sell off’ electricity assets like NSW: Mark McGowan (3 Nov)

Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan says since his state didn’t “sell off” electricity assets the government can help families with cost of living relief.

He said Western Australia is in a “far better position than the eastern states” on gas.

“In New South Wales they sell their electricity assets, it was all meant to mean there wouldn’t be any debt,” Mr McGowan told Sky News Australia.

NSW Labor sold off the electricity sector, not the Libs that he’s smearing with this piece of hypocrisy on stilts.

Once upon a time there was a king who wanted to go fishing.

He called the royal weather forecaster and enquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days.

So, the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a farmer on his donkey.

Upon seeing the king the farmer said “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area”.

The king was polite and considerate, he replied “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him and I will continue on my way”.

So, he continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the weatherman at once!

Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.

The farmer said “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain”.

So the king hired the donkey.

And so began the practice of hiring asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.

Elon has a new nickname: Zorg.

Elon Musk To Fire Half Of Twitter On Friday (3 Nov)

Taking a page out of Thanos’ playbook (or is that Zorg), in two days Elon Musk will finally do what he has repeatedly warned he would do: unleash mass layoffs at the company he just acquired.

According to Bloomberg, the world’s richest man will eliminate 3,700 jobs at Twitter – roughly half of the company’s entire workforce – in a bid to drive down costs following his $44 billion acquisition; Musk will inform affected staffers Friday, said the Bloomberg sources. Oh, and all those masked snowflakes who previously raged against the previous management’s “draconian” demand to come back to the office, you’re out of luck too: Musk intends to reverse the company’s existing work-from-anywhere policy asking what few employees remain to report to offices.

The wailing is going to be quite entertaining. Cue the “what’s best in life?” memes.

Catch up on the Actuaries Institute’s COVID-19 Mortality Working Group’s latest analysis of excess deaths.
Total excess mortality for the month of July 2022 is estimated at 16% (+2,600 deaths), relative to expected mortality at pre-pandemic levels.

Total excess mortality for the first seven months of 2022 is 14% (+13,700 deaths).

Around half of the excess mortality for the first seven months of 2022 is due to COVID-19 (+7,100 deaths) with remaining excess of +6,600 due to the remaining causes.

October 2022 has the lowest COVID-19 surveillance deaths of any month in 2022.

We estimate that COVID-19 deaths will result in excess mortality of around 6% (+2,800) for August to October 2022, with overall excess mortality likely to be higher than this.

We continue to expect that COVID-19 will be the third leading cause of death in Australia in 2022.

Zip,These days, private schools are as woke as the state systems. My kids were at NYC private schools in the freaking 90s and they were as woke then as the wokest in the present day with the exception of shoveling Critical Race Theory down their throats. Not because they didn’t want to, but because they hadn’t thought of it then. One of my kids had a teacher who told the kids he was a “recovering racist” and the reason why he decided to live in black Harlem. How racist is that? 🙂

As for Cassias, sad but worn path of wrong place at wrong time. The blokes who did this were too stupid to realise the ones doing the B&E/Burgs generally don’t bother attending school and certainly aren’t overweight. Generally they are very skinny 10-15 yo and very fast/agile. I scared some off a neighbours house about 10 years ago, they were off like a rocket and over a 6ft fence like lightning. I was fit but there was no chance I’d catch them if I tried. Anyone I know who has caught them in their house at night says same, very quick when startled.

Back copy of the “Brisbane Times”

Civil libertarians and activists are scathing of the Special Branch’s role in the 1970s and 1980s as Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen’s conservative government tried to stop street marches and quell dissent.

Lawyer Terry O’Gorman says the Special Branch was a “thoroughly insidious organisation” that kept files on some students who never committed any violence, hindering their public sector job prospects.

“The Special Branch was used in an overt political manner by the Bjelke-Petersen government,” O’Gorman says.

“It was not a police unit that in fact looked at the prospect of political violence; rather it was used to ruin the careers of young students who did nothing worse than protest against many of the policies of the then Bjelke-Petersen government.”

Aboriginal socialist activist Sam Watson says he helped establish indigenous community organisations and political parties in the late 1960s and the 1970s, prompting monitoring by the Special Branch.

“They raided our place every couple of weeks,” Watson says.

“In 1970, we were running a very active anti-Vietnam campaign with regular rallies and marches and protest meetings; the Special Branch were always there in the background.”

Watson says officers tried to infiltrate some of the leadership groups.

“There were clandestine officers dressed in hippy gear,” he recalls.

Jeez lord.. Domestic car production was hugely expensive and the government subsided the carmarkers to make up for some of the inefficiency. In addition, there were import quotas and tariffs on imports in order to try to equalize the price of domestically produced cars vs imports. There was never any attempt to make cars cheaper for consumers. The objective was to hold onto a domestic car industry first and foremost.

Subsidizing an inefficient industry and imposing choke points on imports through tariffs is NOT an attempt to make cars affordable.

By drastically inflating the ukrainian army with conscripts and flooding it with western weapons and intelligence it is no longer a short term possibility. This has left putin no choice but to raise a million man army to crush ukraine.

“God bless them. Never let it be said all Jews are demonrats. Hasidim will win out on demographics alone.

Thanks JC, nice to see, Zeldin is Jewish. The Orthodox and Haredim are not Demonrats. They are on the front line of out of control anti-Semitism in large US cities, they are daily being attacked and assaulted in NYC and other cities because they’re Jews….oh but I forgot, according to one here, their attackers have “legitimate grievances”.

I suppose, when you think about it, that it’s a natural progression to go from economics to journalism where you fail at both before entering fantasy football – which is pretend economics and a bit of typing.

From the bio and extract:

… He ran a flagship fund and had double the rate of return than that of the market index.

His foreword is easy to read and he had a school investment club that did well. …

Good enough.

A reminder, 970 K have died to date as result of our solutions to the pandemic:

• 138 K overdose, accident, assault, suicide, etc.
• 391 K primarily Factor \/
• 440 K from denial of treatment

That is 76% of all pandemic excess death. Let that sink in…

Does anyone understand what Factor \/ is?

Hard to see how you replicate 1 and 3 in individual races, possible in some, even if 2 still obtains.

Why would it be difficult when senate races are almost identical to a presidential race strictly in terms of the fact that both types of races are state based. It’s most certainly hard to replicate it for the house, but for the senate I’m not so so. Fetterhead has won in Penn just though cheating.

Well, just watched Sharpe’s Rifles, the first of the series.

Not that impressed, really. Nice work on the uniforms and firearm detail, and the light cavalry weren’t bad, but the plot and characterisation were rather feeble.
