Bad news for KD..

His mate has failed him.

Bowled him! Warner plays on!
1h ago
By Simon Smale

An expansive drive from David Warner brings the inside edge and the ball cannons into the stumps, sending bails and leg stump flying everywhere.

There was no foot movement at all, Warner had to reach for it and it was a bit ugly in all honesty.

An early breakthrough for the West Indies, Warner out for 5 off 16 balls, Australia 1-9.

Mother Lode, I spent many years in the MFB, usually got call outs for trapped animals a few times a year. It really doesn’t cost much, the same crew is usually sitting around doing little. It can be a bit of a training exercise and the public love it. The main thing is to not injure yourself or others in the process. The higher ups don’t like that at all.

I did get a call once in East Melbourne for a bird stuck in a tree. We got there and the old dear pointed out a cocky high in a tree, as we looked at it, it flew away.

Magpie kiddies get themselves into all sorts of strife. Nthrn magpie chick of last year was a total jet pilot until he broke his leg about three months ago. Which was sad…except it healed up. Compound fracture too, with the bone sticking out. Quite amazing recuperation ability. He’s gone now, evicted thoroughly by dad. This year’s kid is also limping badly due to some sort of leg damage, not sure what. They only have the one because the first nesting failed for some reason.

Ironically the sthrn magpies are going awesomely. Ironic because mum is dad’s daughter, the DNA must be tied into pretzels. But there’re two kids and they seem in good shape, no extra legs or anything. I had one with dad on my porch a short while ago, signs are I’ll have them friendly before too long.

The magpies are always uppity – give them an inch and they’ll take a mile. We have two frazzled parents hanging around at the moment with a loud, demanding teenager.

The creature is big enough to fend for itself but noooooo…it follows them around making feeding noises and wing movements. So the parents try to escape by hopping in the back door. They get mince to lure them out again.

Either the teenager has been watching human behaviour and is copying, or it is the greatest orchestrated con in the history of wildlife. Or a bit of both.

Are you kidding? With Barnes laid up in hospital Luigi will think it the time Australia needs him most.

He will jam himself into a pair skin-tight jeans (with that little pouch for putting in a rolled sock), don a singlet (not so easy to find -he won’t know anyone in a union who has actually been on site or worked up a sweat before), hop on the stage, swing his pelvis around and belt out songs like “The Red Flag”, “The International”, and “I Eat Tories”.

Gillard will have got back together with the rest of her troupe to act as backing vocals and dancers.

THE FIERY CURSE OF CONSERVATION

Land-use legislation has driven catastrophic bushfires in southeast Australia. Now is the time for Aboriginal people with the knowledge and desire to return their Country to health

By Associate Professor Michael-Shawn Fletcher and Anthony Romano, University of Melbourne; Russell Mullett, Kurnai Traditional Custodian; Dr Simon Connor, Australian National University and Alice Laming, University of Melbourne

It may feel unimaginable as the rain continues to fall, but southeast Australia also continues to face a bushfire crisis.

We saw this crisis in action in the devastating 2019/2020 Black Summer bushfires. Fires that burnt nearly 25 million hectares of bush, devastated peoples’ homes and livelihoods, killed or displaced an estimated 3 billion animals and had an estimated total cost of up to $AU73 billion.

Our team investigated the bushfire history of one of the worst hit areas during the Black Summer bushfires – Buchan, a town on Gunaikurnai Country in the east Gippsland region of Victoria.

Our research found that there were no catastrophic bushfires for almost a century until the mid-1970’s, following the establishment of Victoria’s 1970 Land Conservation Act. As a result of the Act, the Land Conservation Council was established, a set of legislation that sought to protect the Australian bush from humans.

The Land Conservation Council banned the use of frequent fire by farmers in the area, to promote grass for livestock and keep fuel loads low, which allowed an explosion of flammable trees and shrubs.

It was only after this prohibition on burning that catastrophic bushfires became an issue in the Buchan area.

CULTURAL BURNING AND THE OVERSTOCKING

Aboriginal people make use of all kinds of vegetation, from closed forests to treeless grasslands, from freshwater to sea Country.

Each mob care for their Country according to their own laws and philosophies. The principal (but not only) tool for caring for Country is fire – a process now referred to as Cultural Burning.

SETTLER FARMERS AND OPEN COUNTRY

Settler farmers in southeast Australia capitalised on the systematic, fine-grained and diverse set of ways Aboriginal people applied fire to Country.

Indeed, most agricultural areas in the southeast are on Country that was already open and grassy because of the systematic application of fire to care for Country over many millennia.

“After Europeans arrived, the settlers followed the Aboriginal ways and the country was all open, rolling grassland. My father said it was paradise on earth. Orbost right through Gelantipy, Wulgulmerang, Omeo and all that country was rolling grassland, and the settlers came there because it was great for their cattle.”

SETTLER MIMICRY

Many settler farmers observed and mimicked the practice of burning by Aboriginal peoples.

They wanted the benefits of increased green shoots following the low-intensity burning of grasses to feed their livestock, as well as the protection that burning of ground fuels provided from bushfires in this perilously flammable environment.

In the previously mentioned inquest, local Buchan farmers submitted the following statements about settler burning of Country:

“After the limitations on these [Aboriginal] people, the settlers followed their ways and the country retained its grassland quality. Forestry Officers took over the responsibility of maintaining a balanced public land service.

“These men had a good understanding of the bush and did a very good management job. Then the regulations began to be more and more restrictive. Public land management and the responsibility of the Minister, have been evaded, over a long time.”

Have just returned to our city abode (emergency visit to Royal North Shore Hospital for husband – yet again! But that is another story. When finally arrived home, was immediately visited (how do they know?) by the scroungers – water dragons, magpies & lorikeets.

As sometimes happens – the lorikeets object to the presence of the magpies and the male does an intimidatory dance which the magpies totally ignore. It is very, very funny to watch. The male flutters his wings, advances & then sort of curls his neck about. We have seen him also perform the same routine with water dragons – which are similarly unperturbed.

The History of Battle: Maneuver Part 4

Turning Moves and the Geometry of Musket Armies

It is easy to point to a variety of inventions that “revolutionized” warfare. From the exploding shell, to the telegraph, to the railroad, to the internal combustion engine, to the airplane, warfare and battle are continually reinvented to the point where they exist in an essentially fluid state. Nevertheless,

if one were to point to a single technological development which marks a clear “before and after” watershed moment in the history of war, it would have to be the widespread introduction of standardized firearms, specifically muskets and cannon.

The use of muskets and field artillery drastically changed both the face of battle and society. Armies were suddenly able to bring to bear a level of firepower hitherto unimaginable, which swept equipment that had been the mainstay of war – mail and plate armor, pikes, and the bow and arrow – irrevocably from the field.

Two armies of the medieval era – the Mongols and the English – had at times enjoyed a decisive battlefield edge in the form of superior ranged firepower. But these advantages had come from their possession of unique cultural artifacts (the steppe cavalryman’s recurve bow, and the English longbow) which took a lifetime of training to master and could not be easily imitated. No German prince could simply decide that he wanted an army of Mongol style cavalry archers. Musket and cannon, however, could theoretically be available to any state, if it had the fiscal and bureaucratic machinery to acquire the weapons and recruit and train the men.

If firearms changed the face of battle, then they also changed the nature of the warrior. Armies were transformed into bureaucratic institutions and genuine arms of the state. The ancient prerogatives of the warrior classes and armed subcontractors – the knights and mercenaries of the world – were destroyed, and the descendants of the knights became the officers in professional, standardized armies, fundamentally transforming the relationship between the state, the elites, and the citizenry. The great British military historian, J.F.C Fuller, famously wrote that “The musket made the infantryman and the infantryman made the democrat” – foreshadowing that as armies grew in size and necessarily recruited ever larger proportions of the young male population, popular political participation with the state necessarily grew as well. As the Romans well knew, there are few forms of participation in political life as intense and meaningful as military service.

The military transformation of Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries would indeed change virtually all aspects of political life. For military planners, however, it merely complicated and added new difficulties to the ancient problem of battle. Firearms radically altered the geometry of battle – changing not just the way individual soldiers fought, but also how they were arranged, moved, and governed on the field. In this entry of our series, let us contemplate the changing geometry of battle in the early era of massed firearms, and discover how commanders coped with the new technology, marrying the growing firepower of their armies with the ancient quest for asymmetry through maneuver.

– Swedish Supernova

– How to roll up a flank

Some 170 years separated Gustavus Adolphus, who helped usher in the age of professional European musket armies, and Napoleon Bonaparte, who signified the apogee of this military system. In that intervening period, few commanders earned such enduring fame as Frederick II, King in Prussia – or as we know him, Frederick the Great.

Frederick is something of an archetype for stereotypically German qualities – dutifulness, industriousness, administrative efficiency, rationality, and battlefield aggression.

Even after filtering out the idealized man glorified by patriotic German historians, there is no question that Frederick (or “Old Fritz”, as his soldiers called him in his later years) was both a skilled military practitioner and a man that operated within hard, defined limits.

The central event of Frederick’s life was a series of wars fought against what seemed like an overwhelming coalition of enemies, pitting tiny Prussia against the Austrian Hapsburgs, France, and Russia. Given these stacked odds, it is somewhat natural to lump Fredrick into a category with Napoleon or even Hitler, as a sort of “man against the world”, but this would be wrong. Napoleon fought a war for total continental supremacy. Frederick fought a series of wars for Silesia – an industry rich Hapsburg province (in modern day Poland) roughly the size of Slovenia or Israel today. With such modest prizes at stake, to cast Frederick as a would-be world conqueror is a gross misrepresentation.

Vicki – I’m envious of your water dragons! I see them sometimes out on bicycle on a path which crosses a creek near Wallsend, where they sunbake on the asphalt bike path. At the Cafe I only get bluetongues, although they have been a lot of fun this season so far. I’ve relocated five to safer locations already: well fed by a good solid dinner of mince beforehand as a parting gift. Two have been wounded by my kookas, and I saved one from the neighbour’s dogs, which is why I have to relocate them.

The Cafe lorikeets are even worse on the magpies than yours, since mine have acquired a taste for meat. Often if a magpie wants to eat his dinner on my carport roof a rainbow lorikeet will chase him away and steal his food. Sometimes the magpies react to this insult. Once I saw southern male magpie peck a lorikeet right on top its skull, very solidly. Lorikeet fell over like it’d been felled with a mallet. But some seconds later picked itself up and resumed its quest for the magpie’s dinner. They’re tough birdies.

Bruce,

Re climate “experts” unable to explain changes in ice levels at the poles.

Mem – Arctic sea ice correlates closely with the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (ie. the AMO).

Of course the AMO is cyclic on a ~60 year period. So we’ve only seen the rising phase of it for thirty years, because satellites to measure sea ice* weren’t available before that. Consequently Arctic sea ice will expand again as the down phase of the AMO commences.

But the heat of the sun controls what we refer to as the model of thermohaline circulation, or more simply, the “Global Conveyor Belt” Cold water at the poles is more dense than warm water and so it sinks, it heads south, and then it reemerges farther south. At the same time, the solar energy of the sun heats up the surface water at the equator. As the cold water from the poles is forced back to the surface, the heated water is pushed farther north. As it moves north, it too gets less energy from the sun, which causes the water to cool, increase in density, until it finally sinks again and head back down to the equator. This process takes around 1,000 years to complete but there are regular wobbles in the earths cycle and particular influences of planetary cycles. Dr. Willie Soon, astrophysicist, is on to this, but was deliberately excluded from climate discussions and then targeted by the hockey schtick Mann types. (In fact I think only one toady astrophysicist was included in IPCC processes). My point is that yes I think you are right, AMO is a significant driver but overarching this is the influence of the Sun and planetary cycles which are not reflected in the models.

Once I saw southern male magpie peck a lorikeet right on top its skull, very solidly. Lorikeet fell over like it’d been felled with a mallet. But some seconds later picked itself up and resumed its quest for the magpie’s dinner. They’re tough birdies.

Bruce, although they are very very pretty birds, I can’t say they are among my favourites. They are far too demanding and cheeky. Yes – we are very fortunate in having such tame water dragons. I refer to our city home “The House of Dragons”. Today I was sweeping the terrace & noticed a very large dragon actually following me – clearly wanting a meal. How can you resist feeding them? I had a bit of pate in the fridge & he wolfed it down. Lats time we were in Sydney we had about 3 or 4 generations visiting – all sizes from the big whopper grandfather to tiny ones no more than 10cm long. At some time during summer the large ones turn a deep red on their underside. Years ago when I first noticed it, I thought it had been mauled by a dog. But I now believe it is probably a mating signal. They are delightful creatures.

For today’s players, cricket is a pastime. Denouncing sponsors and indulging woke politics is their main area of expertise.

Years ago we were members of the SCG & saw epic games of cricket – especially against India. We abandoned our membership when they installed pokies in the Members Stand & the “pink day” became almost the “pink week”. Then came the expansion of new stands & the complete commercialisation of the SCG.

I know this sounds snobby. But we loved our cricket. A glass of wine & hot chips & our ear phones tuned to the ABC. We always sat in the Noble stand looking straight down the wicket. Heaven.

Those were the days of real cricketers – the Waugh twins etc. And we saw all the greats from OS . Just not the same anymore.

New York Times decides lockdowns are actually draconian and economically destructive when China does them

eugyppius

Three years ago, Zero Covid was the aspiration of public health bureaucrats and politicians across the West. Charlatan techbros like Tomas Pueyo appeared on national television to demand nationwide house arrest; leaders like Angela Merkel surrounded themselves with virus-eradicationist modellers and imposed unprecedented months-long closures upon their countries. When protests inevitably broke out, they were violently suppressed; the protesters were slandered as conspiracy theorists and fascists.

The New York Times played a leading role in this long and excruciating charade. In April 2020, they reported that “an informal coalition of influential conservative leaders and groups, some with close connections to the [Trump] White House” was responsible for “quietly working to nurture protests and apply … pressure to overturn state and local orders intended to stop the spread of the coronavirus.” In March 2021, they ran an obnoxious opinion piece about What Happened When Germany’s Far-Right Party Railed Against Lockdowns, which called German protesters “an amorphous mix of conspiracy theorists, shady organizations and outraged citizens” and appeared to accuse the right-populist party Alternativ für Deutschland of opportunism for joining their ranks.

What a difference a few years have made.

China Protests Break Out as Covid Cases Surge and Lockdowns Persist is a lead headline in today’s New York Times: “Strict Covid restrictions are hurting the country’s economy and angering members of the public, who are taking to the streets,” we read in the article that follows. Western anti-lockdown protesters are fascists and conspiracy theorists; Chinese anti-lockdown protesters, on the other hand, are ordinary people who are just fighting the power:

Western lockdowns were necessary to save lives. Chinese lockdowns are the repressive tactic of an undemocratic regime.

My point is that yes I think you are right, AMO is a significant driver but overarching this is the influence of the Sun and planetary cycles which are not reflected in the models.

The ocean and therein water controls climate on this planet and what warms the ocean is the Sun. When the Earth was coming out of the ice age and the vast amount of water trapped on land started to melt and enter the sea the differing viscosity of the fresh melted water dammed the salty ocean currents and stopped the oceans redistributing heat around the world sending the Earth back into a short new ice age called the Younger Dryas.

Minderoo wants to build 10 weirs along the river.

One already exists, but its application to impact the river under the Aboriginal Heritage Act’s infamous Section 18 was rejected by then Minister Ben Wyatt.

The Thalanyji people believe the construction of the weirs could kill the water serpent Wanamangura, which lives in the river, or make it angry.

University of Melbourne water law and policy specialist Erin O’Donnell said for many First Nations groups rivers were the embodiment of spiritual or sacred beings and changes were afoot around cultural heritage laws to protect more intangible concepts like rivers as ancestral beings.

“There is often a big disconnect between cultural heritage laws, which are designed to protect against development … and the way which we actually manage rivers which sits under water law,” she said.

Australia’s protection of those ancestral beings is almost always quite poor.

“Unless you are bringing serious veto power into the hands of the traditional owners and native title holders then cultural heritage protection is always going to be minimal and weak.”

The Four Fuckeries

I doubt there is another era in the history of Western Civ when the forces in-motion acting on society were so mystifying to those acted upon. And isn’t it especially galling that this is so in an age after rational scientific practice had decoded so many of nature’s secrets? Did that project somehow fail in the end? Has the Enlightenment been defeated? How have we become trapped like frogs being boiled haplessly in our own pond-water?

I have reduced these forces to four obvious streams of the sheerest seemingly evil fuckery, which is to say nefariously managed events meant to harm us. They are surely all related in some way. Let’s try to de-mystify them to understand what we’re up against.

First: Covid-19.

How is it that we don’t know for sure how this organism came into the world, or understand what ensued after it did? Answer: the people who caused it to happen in the Wuhan lab have been busy covering their asses for three years, and successfully so. Yet we know exactly what Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins, Peter Daszak, Ralph Baric and others did. The paper trail in correspondence and patents alone is clear. We just can’t seem to do anything about it.

Two: Government’s war on its own citizens.

I’d date this for the sake of simplicity to DOJ’s and FBI’s campaign to defenestrate Donald Trump starting in 2016 for the crime of winning an election.

Three: Wokery, the Marxist campaign to disorder society in order to overthrow existing institutions and replace them with a utopian dictatorship of the intersectionally oppressed — also known as The Revenge of the Losers.

Its primary tactic is to normalize mental illness. Wokery is often described as a new kind of religion, but that’s mainly because all of its proffers and principles are irrational, as is characteristic of all religions. Also, as in many religions, Wokery in practice is preoccupied with coercion and punishment — which is natural for a movement based on vengeance — and often to a sadistic degree. It laughs at the idea of redemption. Its adversaries are never forgiven, only dealt additional punishments for asking.

Four, the most mysterious of the four fuckeries: Globalism as represented by the World Economic Forum (WEF) led by the quasi-comical Klaus Schwab.

Supposedly — and I can’t endorse this proposition — it is a front for some cabal of exalted international bankers and oligarchs, the proverbial Rothschilds and Rockefellers, Soros and Bill Gates and their various subalterns. There is certainly a lot of money involved and, as the old saying goes, Money talks and bullshit walks. There is also a ton of chatter about this selfsame cabal centering around a Satanic child molestation cult.

This is the kind of periodic human mass insanity that I see in the Four Fuckeries now loose in the world as Western Civ wobbles. The trouble is, having replaced our gods with science, we have no deity to propitiate. Just endless hypotheses of what’s to come.

CDC Caught Manipulating Data

From Armstrong Economics –

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were court-ordered to turn over data, proving the agency knew the vaccination was not safe from the start. Based on the v-safe active monitoring app that compiled the data of over 10 million users, around 8% reported requiring medical care after their vaccination. Nearly half (48%) went to urgent care, while others were sent to the emergency room (15%), and some were hospitalized (10%).

One in three overall reported adverse reactions. There were 10 million symptoms reported to the CDC from January to April 2021. The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) has been fighting for nearly two years to receive five excel sheets with adverse side effect data from the CDC. It is clear why they hid the information. The CDC continually fails to be transparent with the public, and did not even place symptoms that could indicate myocarditis or pericarditis in their survey. Users could place these symptoms in an open text field under “other,” but the CDC will not release those entries.

“The CDC, in dozens of publications, relied on the data from v-safe to argue and support its recommendations regarding Covid-19 vaccination that upended the lives of tens of millions of Americans who refused to comply,” ICAN noted. The CDC has not been able to explain why it withheld the data. ICAN believes the CDC manipulated data that “may run contrary to the recommendations it pushed to deprive people of their jobs, their livelihoods, schooling, military careers.” It is time to crack down on these health agencies that deliberately harmed the public.”

Colin was bragging to his boss one day “You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone -anyone- and I know them. Tired of his boasting, his boss called Colin’s bluff “Okay Colin – how about Tom Cruise?” “Sure, yep, Tom and I are old friends and I can prove it”.

So Colin and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise’s door and sure enough Tom answers and shouts “Colin! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!”

Although impressed, Colin’s boss is still sceptical. After they leave Cruise’s house, he tells Colin that he thinks Colin’s knowing Cruise was just lucky. “No, no, just name anyone else” Colin says. “President Biden!” his boss quickly retorts. “Yep…” Colin says “I know him, let’s fly out to Washington”. So off they go.

At the White House, Biden spots Colin on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying “Colin, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let’s have a cup of coffee first and catch up”.

Well, Colin’s boss is pretty shaken by now but still not totally convinced.

After they leave the White House grounds, he expresses his doubts to Colin, who again implores him to name anyone else. “The Pope!” his boss replies. “Sure!” says Colin. ” I’ve known the Pope a long time”. So off they fly to Rome.

Colin and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Colin says “This will never work. I can’t catch the Pope’s eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I’ll come out on the balcony with the Pope”. And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.

Sure enough, half an hour later Colin emerges with the Pope on the balcony but by the time Colin returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his boss’ side Colin asks him “What happened?” His boss looks up and says “I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said “Who the fuck’s that on the balcony with Colin?”

“A tweet posted by Elon Musk on Monday showing four cans of Diet Coke on a nightstand has prompted the Washington Post to declare drinkers of the calorie-free cola drink to be a “hardcore cult.”

“They are a tribe whose allegiance to the product goes beyond brand loyalty and into something deeper,” the author says.

“Sure, there are other ways people organize their identities around a preference for one thing over another: sports fans, maybe, or people with those Yeti stickers on their trucks. But Diet Coke drinkers differ in that they typically engage constantly with their beloved, aspartame-sweetened potion.”

If C-sections are now safer than “natural” childbirth, then I’m all for it. I did something I would never have normally done with my daughter in law and her second pregnancy – I told her to seriously look at having a C-section. The agony and results of her first delivery were disgraceful…how they let that poor girl labour away for so many hours in that state was a despicable act of extreme cruelty. It took her months to recover.

Sounds like my first labour, totally horrific over thirty hours and then forceps used. My husband at the time said it reminded him of being present at a car accident. The next three labours were long and painful but I was used to it by then and no caesarian was suggested. For the last one I was forty-two.
This was the era of ‘natural birth’ and midwives all against ‘interventions’. I went along with it.

I’ve been very lucky to emerge fairly unscathed physically; many friends have not. Ballet throughout life has helped. I’d happily recommend a caesar to any woman now though. Lost all my earth mother tendencies. Mother nature is a bitch. Escape her grasp where you can.

I was such a cricket tragic that one day Pakistani keeper Moin Khan practising on the field dropped a ball at my feet over the fence – I was so stricken that I just couldn’t throw it back to him & husband came to my rescue by chucking it back. Khan scowled at me as if I was an imbecile ….I was.

Next Monday is one whole year since I went into hospital for my operation. I spent seven days in the first private hospital where I was operated on and I then went to another private hospital for rehab. Both hospitals are among Sydney’s best and the facilities, the food etc are excellent but the Covid hysteria was in full swing. When I was in the second hospital, due to the fact that I may have had contact with a Covid carrier in the first hospital, I was isolated for over three and a half days with no visitors permitted apart from hospital staff. It was a Tuesday, and they tested me for Covid assuring me me that the results would be back the following day and then as a matter of being doubly sure, they test again. However, the first test got lost at St Vincent’s (where they process hospital tests, I was told). I was not released from Covid isolation purgatory until late on the Friday afternoon. I could see no one, could not leave my room and I got more and more hysterical by the day. That lost Covid test was never found, so by Friday morning, I was losing my mind, my sister was ringing the hospital administrator to complain. Late on the Friday morning they tested me again, couriered it to St Vinnies, it came back negative and then they did another test early on Friday afternoon which was also negative. For those three and a half days I had a big sign on my door with the words “Covid isolation”, except I didn’t have Covid. All I was reminded of was how they used to isolate and brick whole families up during the plague (such a thing was chronicled during the Great Plague of London in 1660). When the food was delivered, when the doctor arrived, when the physio came, I could hear them outside my room putting on their hazmat clothing and face masks and plastic caps, it was ridiculous. They’d come in looking as though they’d just landed on some strange planet, except they were on planet earth and there was a human being in the room slowly but surely going out of her mind.

What a joke., except I suppose I got off lucky, because there were people isolated from their families who then passed away, not being able to see their loved ones.

I just think that we live in a world where bad ideas have taken hold and things are bad but may get better. In James’s world view, we’re in thrall to evil omnipotent overlords and it has always been so.

The totally coordinated Covid scam is proof positive that there is deliberate evil at play, and it’s worldwide. When they run a trial a few months before the real thing, which then follows the same path, it is undeniable. If you watched the Mike Yeadon presentation I linked a couple of days ago, Event 201 or whatever they called it was not the first but about the dozenth of such trials, starting in the U.S. and then spreading worldwide, all of which concentrated not on curing any outbreak but on population control. The responses chosen, including lockdowns, were KNOWN to be not just ineffective but harmful but they were still rolled out worldwide. They are still hiding the ill effects of the “vaccine” and pushing its uptake. How many people died from inappropriate treatments for Covid which were rigidly adhered to, while known to be safe drugs were banned? With sick people put into nursing homes? What did they think the outcome of that would be?

And then, there’s the WEF telling us all about their plans for us to own nothing and be happy about it. Prince Charles announcing the Get Reset, which is apparently intended to reset us into slavery. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing accidental about any of it. It would be laughable if it wasn’t happening before our eyes.

And then, of course, there’s the climate scam which, as I’ve said, was planned from as far back as the 1960s (Maurice Strong) and was entirely political from day one, with the overt intention of “collapsing the capitalist economies”.

Can anyone here really seriously contend that our governments are actually working for us?

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35104193/

We analyzed data from the 2018 Sex in Canada survey (n = 1,015 cisgender men) to examine the association between feminist identification and reported use of prescription ED medication (EDM) during men’s last sexual encounter. Feminist-identified men were substantially more likely to report EDM use than non-feminist men, even after controlling for alcohol use before sex, erection difficulties, sexual arousal, sexual health, mental health, and physical health. One explanation is that feminist men may use EDM to bolster their masculinity when it is otherwise threatened by their identification as feminist. Another is that non-feminist men may be less likely to use prescription EDM because they view accessing healthcare services as a threat to their masculinity. It is also possible that feminist men are more likely to use EDM because they wish to maintain an erection to better please their partner. Lastly, feminist men may be more honest about EDM use than non-feminist men, even though rates are similar. Regardless of the exact reason, therapists can use these results to tailor sexual health messages to clients based on feminist identification. Future work could employ qualitative methods to understand why feminist men report higher rates of EDM use than non-feminist men.

The reasons are they are low T and their wives are repulsive due to obesity.

Adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccines and measures to prevent them

Abstract

Recently, The Lancet published a study on the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines and the waning of immunity with time. The study showed that immune function among vaccinated individuals 8 months after the administration of two doses of COVID-19 vaccine was lower than that among the unvaccinated individuals. According to European Medicines Agency recommendations, frequent COVID-19 booster shots could adversely affect the immune response and may not be feasible. The decrease in immunity can be caused by several factors such as N1-methylpseudouridine, the spike protein, lipid nanoparticles, antibody-dependent enhancement, and the original antigenic stimulus. These clinical alterations may explain the association reported between COVID-19 vaccination and shingles. As a safety measure, further booster vaccinations should be discontinued. In addition, the date of vaccination should be recorded in the medical record of patients. Several practical measures to prevent a decrease in immunity have been reported. These include limiting the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including acetaminophen to maintain deep body temperature, appropriate use of antibiotics, smoking cessation, stress control, and limiting the use of lipid emulsions, including propofol, which may cause perioperative immunosuppression. In conclusion, COVID-19 vaccination is a major risk factor for infections in critically ill patients.

Crotchless oozes equivalence, last refuge of the chafed arsehole. Christianity is responsible for democracy, the greatest social and economic framework invented by humans. 3rd nations exterminated the Mega-Fauna, burnt Australian forests for centuries and warred continually with themselves. They had a rigid social structure which stagnated their culture and were more oppressive to women than the mozzies.
