    Thanks, Cassie. Seems you and I were writing similar things at the same time. No collusion though.

    You are right about the abuse of me here.

    It absolutely stinks. It degrades the site.

    It should by rights drive me right away, because that is what a sensible person would do. Depart this site with no regrets. No woman should let herself become a punching bag anywhere let alone on a site which claims to believe in the morals and values she believes in. Turns out its just as hypocritical as anywhere else.

    The Greens are our very own Nazi party.

    Greens MP made ‘direct attack on Jewish people’

    Labor MP Josh Burns has described Greens MP Jenny Leong’s use of an anti-Semitic trope as a “direct attack on Jewish people in Australia”.

    Ms Leong was accused of using an anti-Semitic trope at a pro-Palestinian event last year, when she accused the “Jewish lobby” of “infiltrating into every single aspect of what is ethnic community groups”.

    In a statement posted to X, Mr Burns said Ms Leong should unreservedly apologise.

    “The NSW Greens MP Jenny Leong’s description of Jewish people as having ‘tentacles’ and some form of sinister motive is reminiscent of old and dark antisemitic tropes.

    “By suggesting Jewish community organisations join other ethnic groups to influence and control them, Ms Leong has depicted Jewish people in a manner that has no place in a multicultural and diverse Australia,” the statement said.

    Mr Burns went on to say Ms Leong had issued a “conditional and loaded statement” that sought to minimise her original remarks.

    “She should unreservedly apologise, and the Australian Greens leadership should take responsibility and demonstrate that Jewish people in Australia are safe and respected by their party.”

    Goebbels speak. The party known as the Greens should be disendorsed.

    I’m sorry but Lizzie does not deserve or warrant the incessant and savage censuring, pillorying and abuse she receives here from one or two posters.

    Many people here personally know Lizzie, such as myself, Gilas, Tinta, Dragnet, Rabz, Harlequin, Jupes, Rafe, Megan and others. Lizzie is a generous, kind, sensible and intelligent woman,

    I don’t mind some stoushing and disputes but seriously, this attacking of Lizzie for no reason is tedious.

    Well said Cassie !

    I don’t know Lizzie but I enjoy most of her comments, and if there are some that of no interest I just scroll on by.

    Dover is very accomodating with comments on this site, although there’s a very small minority of posters who are exceedingly aggressive/nasty and appear to be looking for a stoush which for the life of me I don’t understand.

    I don’t expect kumbaya here and vigorous debate/exchange of comments is always welcome, but there is already enough vitriol and unpleasantness in the world today and life is too short.

    I am thoroughly sick of the downticking my reasonable and innocuous comments receive here. Far too many to be ignored, and far too constant.

    I have been under death threats and threats of violence in my life, and am currently struggling under another, but believe me, none make me feel as bad as some of the hatreds I get here. I have never given way to threats and as downticks are a threat of a sort when they are consistent, I will not give way to them here.

    Beheaded babies.
    Oh dear.
    No one claimed 40 beheaded babies but Hamas apologists love to repeat that narrative.
    Let’s be clear, there were babies shot in their cots, in their mothers arms, burnt to death, had their parents murdered in front of them, kidnapped, held hostage, separated from their parents, kidnapped and abandoned inside the gazan border and a couple who’s heads were attached to their bodies by a flap of skin, apparently by accident, taken from the womb of their dying mother and stabbed..
    There were Israelies and others beheaded, (one with a garden hoe) eyes gouged out, raped, stabbed, shot, blown up with rpgs and grenades, set on fire while still alive after being raped, dead bodies paraded naked through the streets of Gaza, elderly and children beaten by ‘gazan civilians’ tortured, starved, drugged and beaten to death in captivity but oh just show your true self with your “beheaded babies’ comment.

    As to some posts regarding private family matters and highly sensitive personal information??

    I may be a bit too private and introvert but I feel those should not be aired on a blog.
    My personal opinion only as always.

    Also one can make a comment about any matter without mentioning personal relation to the person in the comment, does not make it any more relevant or true.

    What difference does it make to say “I used to know him/her” and then go on to tell about a foreign government action involving millions of other people of the same nationality?

    Taking offense is a personal matter, depends where it’s coming from.

    These days, no one would treat BPH (enlargement restricting urine flow) with a radical prostatectomy.

    Well, that’s what I thought too, Gilas. Benign Prostrate Hyperplasia would never require surgery in this day and age of medication, which they said was going to be undertaken. What they didn’t say was that a radical prostatectomy was the surgery being undertaken; yet that’s all it could possibly have been if it was surgery rather than a simple biopsy. Then they come out an announce, wow, there’s some focal points in his prostate of whatever (they didn’t say, but obviously staged prostate cancer cells) but there’s also cancer elsewhere, type unspecified.

    If only they’d come clean at the start. There’s King Charles saying saying get your prostate checked in order to help all men, but he’s not saying what to get it checked for. BPH announces itself. You can’t pee. Prostate cancer doesn’t except in the later stages (as I understand it). Why confuse the two? Seems they were deliberately trying to downplay the word cancer at first. Now they’ve just made a medical dog’s breakfast of it.

    Doesn’t the Constitution of the United States provide for the removal of driveling idiots like this?

    Yes!

    Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states:

    Section 4

    Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

    Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

    JC has also been very supportive of me regarding the years of attacks I have been subjected to by JMH, such vile comments, who has transvested from old fogey male to huffed-up female clarion for ‘decency’ in commentary (really?).

    JC’s biffs with his pet-named blokes I ignore because I can’t understand them.
    I let him think I am just losing my marbles or that I follow what it’s all about, but I don’t. Sometimes I wish I was dementing. Life would be simpler, as getting old under constant attack for doing no more than exerising one’s natural and still firm intelligence to comment on many issues is no joy.

    There is too much aggro getting in the way of commentary here.
    Perhaps, as the Irish say, it’s da drink. Moderate it, chaps’s.

    ? ???? The US lied about warning Iraq in advance of strikes, the State Department admitted

    The US did not provide advance notice to Iraq before its recent strikes on Iraqi territory, contrary to last week’s statement by Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby, US State Department deputy principal spokesperson Vedant Patel said on Monday.

    “Iraq, like every country in the region, understood that there would be a response after the deaths of our soldiers. As for this specific response on Friday, there was not a pre-notification. We informed the Iraqis immediately after the strikes occurred,” Patel said.

    Last week, Kirby said that the US had informed the Iraqi government about its operation prior to conducting the strikes.

    Both Iraq and Syria condemned the US strikes on their territory, and the Iraqi parliament’s Security and Defense Committee called for the quick signing of an agreement on the withdrawal of the international coalition troops from the country.

    I may be a bit too private and introvert but I feel those should not be aired on a blog.
    My personal opinion

    I provide very little private information about myself. My life is too mundane to be of interest to others.

    Now I will be personal. What happens here is nothing compared to what is happening in my personal life. For a while now an ahole has been insulting me. I just let it pass but now it is payback time. He is on a hiding to nothing because he is 83 years old, has a pacemaker, lost several toes due to diabetes, and probably has Alzheimer’s related agitation hence the insults and my patience. I’ve told him he needs to go into residential care but that makes him more angry. Here’s the weird thing, the ahole can’t handle being insulted, goes completely ballistic, flooding my inbox with insults and threatening to have his son commit physical violence against me. I know his son, that won’t happen. I’ll be seeing the ahole next week. He’s made a huge mistake because when I turn I don’t turn back, I will attack him at every opportunity. I’m weird like that because typically I couldn’t be bothered hating a person but when I do I’m relentless. My main concern is that because his health is so frail and he has a pacemaker, and I can trigger him so easily, I need to be careful lest his heart gives out. Or do I?

    And today I read and listen to a recording where a NSW Greens MP says that the ‘Jewish lobby’ has tentacles that it uses to “influence power”. Here are her words…

    “The Jewish lobby and the Zionist lobby are infiltrating into every single aspect of what is ethnic community groups, they rock up, and they’re part of the campaign,” she said in the meeting.

    “Their tentacles reach into the areas that try and influence power, and I think that we need to call that out and expose it,” she said.

    This whinging from someone who professes to be an academic? Hard to believe, but there it is!

    8 1

    This is typical of someone who has no idea what an academic is or what one does and takes a most peculiar approach to the subject. Also, I haven’t been in academia for twenty years now. I don’t profess to be an academic, the simple fact is that I was one, and a good one at that. Eight nonsensical uptickers are clearly short of clue too.

    Academia has been part of my life but definitely not the whole of it. I am self-educated, for a start, having missed early opportunities you probably did have JMH. I am these days, as I’ve been over time, a wife, mother, grandmother, traveller and whatever else any woman might be if she cares to work at it. What a lot of stupid envy and cultural illiteracy is on display here at times.

    I am a disgrace when it comes to maintaining contact with old friends. So, it is no surprise that I didn’t learn of an extraordinary experience affecting a colleague with whom I endured the time wasting experience of national service.

    My friend is probably the most placid, non-opiniated person yet born.

    Hearing a noise at night he leaped out of bed to find two gentlemen or North African appearance in his corridor. Apparently these cultural enhancers are over represented in Numbers Bob’s bubble of ‘Woomba. Perhaps Numbers is a counsellor.

    One of the gentlemen proceeded to hit him in the chest with a tomahawk.

    Now the history becomes truely wierd.

    As the visitors took off out the window through which they entered, the axe fell out of my friend’s chest. Incredibly, he picked it up and chuked it at his univited guests. He believes that he may have hit one of them but admits that that his recall may have been a touch impared at this point.

    Being who he was, he didn’t believe that his experience merited any particular fuss, until he recounted his experience in Out Patients.

    When lying on his gurney, Sergeant Plod arrived and read out a formal caution related to overly agressive responses to home invasions.

    One of the many benefits I’ve gained from finding this blog is the discussion of autism and mental illness, particularly Delta A and Lizzie B, writing of their knowledge and experience.

    I have sympathy for Lizzie in her present troubles with her son; my family has a member with mental issues – basically a decent person, but narcissistic, manipulative and dead cunning.

    He is my younger brother, he was very close to my older sister. They lived three hours apart, but there were constant visits and daily, and sometimes several times a day, phone calls. When my sister died, and he was left with just me, living a long way away, and limiting the phone calls to twice weekly (there was more, life was quite different for him), he seemed to take responsibility for himself. Over the years since he has established his own life with his own network of local support. It no doubt helps that he is now in his late sixties and has slowed down a bit.

    Anyhow Lizzie, battle on and don’t let the b*stards get you down.

    talking about how bad cannibalism is to your health ,

    Cannibalism is very dangerous because it promotes prion transmission that wrecks brains. Broadly it is the equivalent of CKD, mad cow’s disease. The issue was even highlighted with a recent report that a few individuals who received human growth hormone from deceased humans’ brains developed early onset Alzheimer’s.

    I am sitting in the cemetery in Bonifacio, it is on the tip of the peninsula?
    Little houses in the Italian style, not surprising given it’s built on rock and the place was formerly ruled by the Pisans, then the Genoans.
    The haute ville is much bigger than I realised, with the medieval town close to the harbour, for obvious reasons, between that and the cemetery are ancient fortifications and a couple of large buildings, one of which appears to have been a governor’s palace, derelict but now being repaired.
    I peeked in a couple of doorways in the town, the stairways are steep ladders, one made of wood, in a building that is four stories high, perhaps there is easier access on the other side.
    There is, as I mentioned vehicle access up, if you dont fancy the climb, because it’s very steep up the ramp but the views across the Tyrrhenian Sea and around the coast are amazing.
    Many of the buildings date back the the 13th century.

    In other news, Ian Lavender, the youngest member of the cast of Dad’s Army, has died.
    It was a brilliantly written and acted series, best of British!

    That is very sad news.

    The funniest bit of Dad’s Army is when they captured the U-Boat crew. The German Captain (welsh actor – Phillip Madoc) is struggling not to laugh when Ian Lavender sings his “Whistle while you work, Hitler is a twerp!” song. Arthur Lowe has his classic line:-

    “Don’t tell him, Pike!”

    It’s on YouTube, and is just fabulous comedy, looking at the actors struggling for composure.

    (2) If the nature of the assault is such as to cause reasonable apprehension of death or grievous bodily harm, and the person using force by way of defence believes, on reasonable grounds, that the person can not otherwise preserve the person defended from death or grievous bodily harm, it is lawful for the person to use any such force to the assailant as is necessary for defence, even though such force may cause death or grievous bodily harm.

    Lizzie.
    It is my melancholy duty to inform you that I agree with Nurse Betty earlier today.
    The episode where the Power Hog left lunch to collect cigarette butts was clearly an attempt to embarrass you and leverage you into coughing up*.
    And, whilst I hinted at it being a “teachable moment” I didn’t raise the issue of what happens when you “cark it” as Betty so indelicately put it. However, now that it has been raised, it is a consideration.
    Someone else also raised the issue of wills and bequests. One thing worth considering is that adult children often successfully challenge wills by demonstrating that they were effectively still dependent upon the parents**.
    Leaving an audit trail of picking up the tab for expenses would, in fact, support that claim, to the detriment of other intended beneficiaries. If required, perhaps the occasional contribution in kind, rather than cash, might be more appropriate. Perhaps the occasional provision of groceries? Way harder for a shifty lawyer to establish a trail and quantify that as ongoing support.

    * The ideal response to the cigarette butt stunt?
    “That’s nice dear. Be careful you don’t pick up any menthols.”
    ** The one which comes to mind is Brian Naylor, Channel 7 newsreader who died in the Black Saturday bushfires. He had excluded one son from his will after several unsuccessful bail-outs of his junkie lifestyle. The son challenged and got a payout. Perversely, the bigger the no-hoper, the greater chance of a legal win.

    What I find amusing is that the Dementia administration and the American left are sending vibes that she would be a great recruit for political gain. I find the proposition laughable.

    But then for a political party that has nothing to run on except TDS, calling people racists, DEI and moving kids around sex-wise through surgery etc, I guess they would think Swift would be an excellent spokeswoman for dementia.

As I mentioned in part of my response to Johanna’s snide remarks about inheritance, we have taken detailed legal advice concerning this son and the content of our Wills. We heard some horrific stories of wills being challenged due to ‘dependence’, to the detriment of other beneficiaries. Anything I do to assist this sad son is done on a temporary basis and with legal oversight. We are not heartless though to any of our family in need.

    I know an old friend who was tried for assault, on seeing the CCTV footage, it was immediately dismissed. Then we have Dr Duk’s infamous case. Both cases involved obvious and unpunished perjury by the police and any advising DPP lawyers.

    As I age, I understand more why some are so passionate about caring for animals, particularly those who have been mistreated and discarded. I probably shouldn’t admit in public that I can imagine being a not-so-angelic avenging angel on behalf of the animals who cannot fight for themselves.

    People like her do not get into positions like a VP of the US by not having any qualifications.

    Oh yes they do. If you followed her career progression you would see knee pads as her greatest assets.

    She was so bad she didn’t last past the second primary in the Democrat selection process and got no delegates and only 844 votes in two states in total. Worse than that, Donald Trump, who is not a Democrat and was not on any Democrat primary ballot got 1217 write in votes.

    Biden got 19 million votes…

    She is not where she is because she is smart, she is dumber than a bucket of rocks. She is there because she is black, female and not a threat to the bowl of blanc mange who is currently in the Oval Office… even her knee pads can’t help her there.

    The problem for most people who would say this in the West, who has common law or Roman law, who is a Slav or speaks English or uses Latin or Cyrillic script, is that they are very, very likely culturally Christian, if they like it or not.

    Your replies are deliberately delayed because, for some insane reason you believe it gives you a leg up. You’re posting countless add-on fluff to other people’s comments before a trolling reply to me. The above shows your stupid strategy.

    I don’t sit by the computer all day pressing the reload button so I can keep up.

    Sure, you do. If you’re not posting stupid add-ons, you’re furiously up and down ticking comments (your own and other people’s) and trying to ruin the blog because you’re an old woman holding grudges and suffering from an inferiority problem.

    You really do need to get some psychiatric help.

    For what, because I think you’re a moron? How would a mental health expert change that reality? Why would he?

    From what I see, you are becoming more and more irrational in the way you attack people who are minding their own business.

    From what you see? I posted a comment—call it an “add-“on”—that referring to an empty and full plot in the same sentence is idiotic. You agreed, even though the Bush Pig tried to cover for you. How is that irrational, you dickhead?

    You are sounding paranoid and delusional – constantly claiming you never start fights, even when it’s been pointed out to you that you do.

    No, I’m not. I’m very clear about what I think of you and will continue to say so when I see fit. You call it irrational, lying, or paranoid because you have no response. Claiming that I start fights is laughable. The bush pig started this one, like he does all the time, and then falsely claims that I do. You really are stupid. You think that by repeating this bilge people will buy into it. They don’t, as we all have a measure of your incompetence by now.

    Ruth, who rarely comes in, but lurks. I just scrolled back a bit checking my phone issue and saw your comment about your brother. Glad things got better for him as he aged. A friend of mine, a doctor in a jail near Brixton in the UK, used to say in his youthful wisdom you just have to keep them alive till they gain some sense. Sadly for such a clever and thoroughly well-read and intellectual man, he was later to join ‘them’. Morphine addiction. I haven’t heard from him since that news came through the grapevine of old Cambridge friends of Hairy. Tried to send some good wishes, but don’t know if they arrived.

    So true what you say, Ruth. Thanks for your understanding of what you and I know to be an intractable and consuming problem when it hits your own family. I did drug counselling to comprehend more about it.
