Dot .. much and all as I love Free Speech and have seen things posted that gave me pause… And I do I search for viewpoints that might pull me up short. … Nothing you have ever posted has been remotely intelligent or challenging.

Any, “Sliante” to you mob. Sitting on the verandah, overlooking the Avon valley, punishing the single malt, and reading Top Ender’s monumental work on the sinking of HMAS Sydney, are occupations worthy of a gentleman.

Yes, relentlessly nasty to you (Bird) and Grigory’s sockpuppets, and possibly a spook who glows so much even the lefties laugh about it on CookerPedia.

Go suck on a block of pink Himalayan salt.

If you weren’t serial pest Graeme Bird in gaol say for 20 years at Acacia and had 10 different professions and are only 55 or so, you’d probably (almost certainly) be lying. Your writing style, old “mh” (not that one, the other one) and Bolton’s blog have totally different writing styles. Your tells and turns of phrase are dead obvious. You must be on some good meds to not take any bait lately.

You tried to say Hitler was apolitical and that Hamas has claims to justice.

Ergo, I don’t care what you think.

Love it Dorothy. You are first person to call me Grigory. What next, Faulty?

If you’re so clever, just say what old name you posted under.

Stop bullying posters and chill, Dot. Like last night when you were crapping on that I had been talking shit, but turned out I had not.

You could just come out and say if you are Grigory, National Front, Faulty, etc.

Rather peculiar that you’d insist that you have been beforehand & also know who Faulty was/is but can’t say any other username/s you have posted under.

Weird.

Really, really weird.

look people,
as far as I can tell

Dotty thinks everybody else here is somebody else and not at all themselves
and until everybody else can prove beyond all doubt that they aren’t all the the same person pretending to be everybody else
he simply cannot rest

it isn’t paranoia … it’s science

Why we are sleepwalking into tyranny

All of us aren’t sleepwalking into it. We can see we’re being dragged into it. When I read 1984 in the 90s only three decades ago it was clearly about England then and us now. It wasn’t a picture of the Soviets or anyone else. I wondered why so many viewed as happening somewhere else when it was already happening right around us.

What percentage of the student protesters who support Hamas are not U.S. citizens?

Why do we want them taking the place of American citizens at our most prestigious universities?

“MIT has acknowledged that the reason it did not follow through with threats to suspend students…was its concern that they could face deportation because they were not U.S. citizens.”

MIT is protecting students who violated the terms of their visas.

There are 5000+ crypto currencies and many that support transactional and account privacy are open source. I doubt they can ever close them all down, even on a technical level.

And on Iran -> HAMAS payments any Iranian agencies or companies that want to pay someone hard currency they just has to open an account in Dubai or Qatar. Not every uses swift or needs to transact via western banks nowadays.

I watched a doco on Stanflix a year or so back when I was house sitting a relatives place.

Cryptocurrency. Bitcoin and what not. Blockchains. All a load of clap-trap to me. Made as much sense as a schizophrenic giving me a word salad.

You do for dollars champ, which is the only currencies that speaks the money lingo. You really think US intel wouldn’t have those banks covered in some way, in terms of large flows going to Hamarse or their laundries?

And how many would be able to handle billions of Dollars flowing?

This Jew knows her history, and I’m fearful

I’m so sorry, Cassie. I’m not Jewish but I’m fearful for you. I know my history too, and this is exactly how it begins.

Ask DB for my email. I’d love to have a chat to you. Meanwhile, take care out there.
