Bugger!

Sorry for interrupting, Tom.

That was a thing of beauty. If it didn’t happen, it should have.

Michael Ramirez has a bottomless vat of Trump derangement

The Donald could send a few of them over the edge this time.

On Tuesday afternoon, about 80 staff members demanded a meeting with Anderson, who is currently on leave. They threatened to stage a walkout if their concerns over the situation were not met, the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance confirmed.

In a properly run organisation – assuming that Lattouf was correctly terminated with natural justice etc etc etc – having 80 staff (out of 4,000) turn up with pitchforks demanding the MD reverses the decision toot sweet or else would receive this response: This organisation is not a democracy and you cannot threaten its operation because of your personal preferences and remain employed here. Gf the CCC Choose. By cob tomorrow.

The Deep State will not let him win the Presidency.

I have thought this for some time. It is impossible for Trump to be president again. He is far too great a threat to the swamp and a 100 years of unbelievable grift and corruption. The mere threat of what he will expose means his Boeing plane must suffer a totally unexpected mechanical failure or the unbelievable prospect of a Secret Service protector suffering a tension breakdown and going rogue with his .357 SIG-Sauer P229 double-action/single-action pistol…

Bruce O’Nuke:

In October, EX-Fusion signed a memorandum of understanding with EOS Space Systems, an Australian contractor with technology for detecting space debris. EX-Fusion has announced its plans to install a powerful laser system at the EOS Space Observatory near Canberra.

…and they are going to power it with what?

Another nickel mob gone tits up in WA, down near Ravensthorpe.

It would be a nice thought of Australia setting up its own National Minerals Stockpile while the price is so low. It would also mean that 120 people wouldn’t lose their jobs.

Chris:

Fortunately I have my house mostly paid off, and its not in Ravensthorpe. Still, it usually takes eight or so months to get a new job and I will have to find a way to get by, however long it takes.

Shitty position to be in, even more so if you’ve got kids and the missus loses her job because lack of demand.

The Norks just sold a million rounds of artillery ammunition to the Russians.

I was going to say…
Given the thread and the article, NK weren’t going to rely on artillery. And it would be a cunning move to lull your opponent via the above.

Considering that going to war is just a mega smash, grab, and run, biowarfare is the better route – but only if you have inoculated/immunised your population first.
Which is why it is important to know how the victim will defend itself by hyping up a non lethal disease.

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

The Norks just sold a million rounds of artillery ammunition to the Russians.

Leaving them with a mere 9 million rounds?

I’d be curious to know what they got in exchange. US dollars? Food? Oil? Tanks? Centrifuges?
