Miltinof. Thank you for the Gold Coast Motorail video.

Memories there. We used to be sent for holidays with rellies at Byron Bay. They would pick us up at Murwillumbah station. I thought that the trip through the Tweed was far more exciting than the beach.

Did Cats note the exceptionally well presented station staff. No axe handle arses in trackie daks.

Many Israeli Christians Condemn Hamas and Support Israel

They warn that the Islamist group that launched the Oct. 7 terror attacks is a deadly danger to anyone who doesn’t share its fundamentalist Muslim beliefs.

When Palestinians and their allies chant “From the River to the Sea,” he said, “it means they don’t want Israel to exist. What Christians don’t realize is that to Islamic Jihadists all non-Muslims are infidels. If Israel ceases to exist here, we Christians will cease to exist.”

Khalloul, a major in Israel’s army reserves, believes that widespread international Christian support for an immediate Israeli cease-fire is akin “to supporting the devil” because it will only serve to embolden Hamas. He called on Christians “to stop supporting ideologies that support the annihilation of Israel.”

Well, after yesterday morning’s rumpus I do ask if it is safe for me to pop my head up here?

But I have noted those who remained silent yesterday, who rather than condemning the disgusting commentary hurled at me yesterday morning instead preferred cowardly silence. This I know, you don’t have my back.

I would disagree Cassie re your assumption that Cats are remaining silent . . . I would suggest that there’s quite a few who are NOT coming to the site any more or as frequent due to the incessant arguing and fighting.

In the last few weeks I might visit 1-2 times a day (it would have been close to half a dozen times a day a few months ago) – always like to check the Toons thanks to Tom – BRAVO !

I just don’t have the time or inclination to wade through the tedious abuse and petty bickering that has blighted this site, of which the uptick/downtick fiasco would be a case in point.

Kudos to Dover for making the change – he does a terrific job here.

…the most obvious and disgusting example being Boris Johnson rushing to Ukraine to scuttle any peace agreement.

I’m sceptical. I just can’t see the allegedly cunning Atlanticists entrusting their epochal anti-Russian project to a flake* like Boris Johnson.

If a deal ever was on the table in Istanbul, Ukraine backed away because their constitution prohibits surrendering land without a referendum and at the time that just wouldn’t fly at home.

* an unreliable oddball, in Johnson’s case already well known for his whimsical arbitrariness as British PM. Johnson’s trip was likely more about the UK than Ukraine.

“My Christianity doesn’t allow me to hate people. But I really hate the teachings and actions of Hamas-ISIS, which even Arabs here understand are terrorist in nature. I don’t think they will change. They believe the whole Earth should be theirs. When you look at the situation, there are two options: Either Israel will cease to exist or Hamas will be gone.”

I thought this might be the Bee, but no it’s real.

Indigenous, trans, 2 spirit Laurier University professor says ‘quality of life is not gonna change’ until ‘Two Spirit’ is added to LGBTQ acronym (9 Feb)

A professor at Laurier University, Ontario is advocating for a lengthening of the LGBTQ acronym to include two-spirit individuals and others, by changing it to MMIWG2SLGBTQQIA+.

Dr. Percy Lezard, the co-ordinator of the Indigenous Studies program and a self-identified two-spirit, trans, disabled scholar who uses “they/them/theirs” pronouns, argued that the change was long overdue.

“I always center everything as an Indigenous person,” Lezard added. “I am a faculty member, I am a researcher, I’m a clinician, as a social worker for 35 plus years, but yet those are systems that if we critically engage and unpack, they continue to cause harm to First Nations, Métis, Inuit, Afro-Indigenous, black-Indigenous, 2SLGBTQQAI communities, and so I named the ways in which I am complicit, and so, in doing so, I acknowledge that we need to have a different framework.”

Lezard is one of the lead authors of the MMIWG2SLGBTQQIA+ National Action Plan’s final report, which was submitted in 2021.

There’s a photo in the story and I have to say he/she/it definitely looks very MMIWG2SLGBTQQIA+.

M Lode

It would be interesting to compare the results of boys from co-ed schools and boys from boys-only schools (but not the elite schools, obviously). At a boys only school there would be more energy burned off in the playground, more forgiving for minor acts of boisterousness in class and mischievous quips, and less of the belittling of maleness that teaches boys they have inherited the guilt for all the worlds ills.

Has such a comparison been done?

If it has been done, the results did not meet “expectations”, and it has been suppressed. But I doubt that it would ever be done.

‘Australians deserve better choices of better cars’: Bowen slams ‘silly scare campaigns’ (Sky News, 10 Feb)

Climate Change and Energy Minister Chris Bowen has hit out at the car industry for their “silly scare campaigns” over vehicle efficiency standards because Australians deserve “better choices of better cars”.

Last week, the federal government put the industry on notice after releasing a roadmap to improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.

“The time for sort of silly scare campaigns is over,” Mr Bowen said at a press conference in Western Sydney on Saturday.

“I say to the car industry, 85 per cent of cars sold around the world are sold under vehicle efficiency standards.

“It’s time your Australian customers had the same rights.

It’s time for Australian customers to have the right to buy the car they want. He’s such a total hypocrite it’s breathtaking he can utter this Orwellian fascist rubbish without cringing at what he’s saying.

Ditto

In NSW there aren’t many left. Perhaps the comparison could be made for schools that originally were single sex, but then went coed, and that controls for elite or not eg Fort St and James Ruse. I believe there are also moves to coed a few of the GPS Boys schools so these could become test cases (haven’t heard anything about coeding girls schools)

Neighbouring schools with similar demographics could also be compared eg Epping Boys vs Carlingford High

I doubt it’s acceptable or encouraged but it’s reality. I don’t think South Sudan has been out of the top three “world’s most dysfunctional states” since its inception, civil violence being one of the key indicators for such status. I think only Yemen and Somalia are ahead of it. Sudan, from which South Sudan was partitioned, is also in the top ten of 3rd world sh*thole infamy. I can’t blame people for wanting to escape that, but if they can’t adjust to life here best go back. The cost to our society is too great.

Ignoring it does become a chore at times

hard for somebody to ignore when a certain crew go out of their way to make them a target

responding in kind allows yet more abuse and invites the childish lie “but you started it”

make no response and watch as the a gibbering continues for months … even for years in the targets absence

outsmart and outwit them then watch the paranoia about old socks and weaponized ticking take hold

I think what some people fail to realize is that without a perpetual favorite target(s) here to draw their fire, that sooner or later they’ll pick a new target

damned if you do and damned if you don’t … it’s the hallmark of dealing with the personality disordered

Young, woke left hateful new face of anti-Semitism

11:01AM February 10, 2024
70 Comments

For years the right-on have been warning about the rise of racism. Beware red-faced white men who moan about mass immigration, they say. Watch out for populist politicians and their witless supporters in the masses, they cry. For it is from within these ranks, from within this army of the unwoke, that fascism is likely to emerge.

Watch out, the 1930s are coming back – that’s been the constant cry of the politically correct these past few years.

And yet when fascist-like language really did re-emerge, it came not from some old white bloke but from a youngish and very left-wing woman. When 1930s-style talk really did rear its ugly head, it wasn’t courtesy of an ageing conservative with a chip on his shoulder about illegal immigration, but a hip politico beloved of the smart set.

I am referring, of course, to Jenny Leong, the Greens MP for the state seat of Newtown in Sydney’s inner west.

This week a video emerged showing Leong speaking at a “pro-Palestine” forum in Sydney in December. What she said at that meeting was genuinely chilling. She raged against the “Jewish lobby”. These people, she said, “rock up to every community event and meeting” to try to make a “connection”.

Then came her killer line, a line that will have sickened everyone who has even the faintest acquaintance with the bleak history of anti-Semitism. They meddle in everything, she said, because they want their “tentacles” to reach into every nook of society in order that they might “influence power”.

There it was. “Tentacles”. The old, obscene vision of the Jewish people as an octopus-like monstrosity straddling the world, interfering everywhere. This is the most racist thing I have heard a mainstream politician say.

Yes, it’s good that Leong has walked back her comments. She now admits the word “tentacles” was “inappropriate”. That’s one way of putting it. I prefer “disgusting”. It has direct echoes of Nazi-era cartoons that likewise showed the Jews with “tentacles” encircling the globe.

Leong’s expression of (half-hearted) regret for her remarks should not detract from what a serious situation this is.

To my mind, for a public figure to speak ominously of Jewish “tentacles” is no better than if a public figure compared black people to monkeys or branded Chinese-heritage people a “yellow peril”. Just imagine if an Aussie politician uttered such vile slurs. There would be uproar from the right-on. That politician would be cancelled into oblivion.

This hasn’t happened for Leong. That the self-styled anti-racists of the woke left just carried on sipping their macchiatos is so revealing. It confirms their staggering double standards. They’ll hit the streets over certain kinds of racism, but turn a blind eye to the world’s oldest racism.

“Jewish tentacles” were a key motif in Nazi propaganda. As Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre says: “The nefarious Jew/octopus was a caricature deployed by Nazis as a staple in their hateful campaign.”

The rehabilitation of this vile image should horrify everyone. And strikingly, it was rehabilitated not by some hard-right loudmouth, but by a self-described anti-racist. Leong is a loud and proud critic of racism. She supports Black Lives Matter. “If you’re sick of us talking about racism, imagine how sick we are of being subjected to it,” she once said.

What is going on here? How do we explain this bizarre phenomenon – what we might call “anti-racist anti-Semitism”?

Leong is not the only “anti-racist” who seems to have a colossal blind spot when it comes to anti-Jewish racism. We’ve seen Black Lives Matter praise Hamas. BLM Chicago even tweeted an image of a Hamas paraglider, celebrating those who flew into Israel on October 7 to carry out the worst slaughter of Jewish men, women and children since the Holocaust.

This week it was revealed an “anti-racist” member of staff at the BBC once tweeted about Jews being “Nazi parasites”. At demonstrations across the West, we’ve seen supposed anti-racists march alongside radical Islamists who holler for “jihad” against the Jewish state. Here in London, posh leftists have chanted in support of the Houthis, the Yemeni movement whose flag literally has the words “Curse the Jews” on it.

And, as violent anti-Semitism has soared, anti-racists have looked the other way. The kind of people who scream at white men with dreadlocks (that’s “cultural appropriation”) and damn those who ask ethnic-minority people where they are from (that’s a “racial microaggression”) have been schtum as synagogues in Europe have been firebombed and even when a man with a knife threatened Jews outside a kosher shop in London recently.

Anti-racists flirting with racism – it feels surreal. But here’s the most troubling thing: it’s more than a blind spot. It’s more than hypocrisy. Rather, the strange spectacle of “anti-racist anti-Semitism” speaks to how rotten the politics of identity has become.

This left-wing ideology dolls itself up as “anti-racist”, but it is the opposite. It doesn’t seek to deliver us into a post-racial world, a la Martin Luther King, where true equality reigns. No, it divides us by our ethnic heritage, separating us into boxes marked “oppressed” or “privileged”.

The “oppressed” get the left’s love, while the “privileged” get their hate. And who’s in the “privileged” box? White men, naturally. Heterosexual men. “Cis” people. And, you guessed it, Jews.

Indeed, in the warped worldview of these racial authoritarians who masquerade as progressive, Jews are the most privileged of all.

A recent Harvard/Harris poll in the US found that 67 per cent of 18-24-year-olds – the woke young – view Jews as an “oppressor class”. This, too, echoes a feverish belief of the 1930s – namely, that Jews love to stomp their oppressive boot on the peoples of the world.

Today, entire ethnic groups are demonised, not by the ranting far right, but by a mainstream left that ruthlessly sorts us into the categories of “good” or “bad”.

Identity politics is the enemy of equality. It is the new means through which Jews in particular are singled out as suspect, branded as wicked. Tackling this bigoted left creed should be the top task of everyone who opposes racism, in all its devious guises.

Who was it who said the Greens movement was simply fascism, thinly disguised?

Why bother posting something interesting if you cant see a reaction? The up and downs were far more of a positive than a negative. The downticking was only a major issue for about 5 people and some of them at the same time seemed to like the upticking.

As always the vocal minority got their way.

Hopefully one result will be less drama because simply won’t be able to see reaction at all. Then however we might get drama from people saying why no reaction or not enough. Or could get more involved in stoushes as can no longer show support by where ticked.

Kendal Nathaniel ‘Tiny’ Pinder to be sentenced over rape, assault in District Court in Sydney

The West Australian
Fri, 9 February 2024 3:26PM

Disgraced former Perth Wildcats star Tiny Pinder is due to learn his fate next month after he admitted to charges including rape and recklessly causing grievous bodily harm.

Kendal Nathaniel Pinder faced the District Court in Sydney on Friday for a sentencing hearing charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual intercourse without consent and recklessly causing grievous bodily harm.

He has pleaded guilty to the offences and appeared via video link during the hearing. The judge in the case is now due to hand down his sentence on March 8

“Tiny” Pinder? Any Sandgroper Cats remember that name?

Anyway my bet is the stabber will get less than 10 years

‘Good prospects of rehabilitation’
‘Difficult upbringing’
‘Generational trauma caused by warfare in the homeland’
‘Mental health’
‘Fell in with the wrong crowd’
‘Got caught up in etc etc’

I read a newspaper report into a Koori court hearing of a loon who threatened his neighbour (an 81 year old woman) with a replica gun because she had lodged a noise complaint against him.
The hearing was liberally sprinkled with the above – on meth since aged 13, difficult upbringing, yada, yada.
One of the Koori uncles on the bench even opined that meth affects Aboriginals more than whitey.
The magistrate said he was “ecstatic” that First Nations Thug had got a job. This is, in all probability, a sham job at the local First Nations Co-op for the sole purpose of avoiding jail.
There was not one mention of remorse (except for the trouble he had brought upon himself) or an apology to the woman.
I wouldn’t mind betting that if she turned up for a victim impact statement and asked for an apology, she would be taken aside for a chat about inter-generational trauma and how it would reinforce colonial dispossession to force a First Nations to apologise to a whitey.

How do people form an opinion on the difference between boys/girls only schools and co-ed schools .. ?
I went to a boys only HS and have no idea what going to a co-ed school would be like ..

boys in boys school – perform better and less distracted
giris in girls school – same (heard from the girls and sisters, cousins, friends)

the bit about not mixing with opposite sex. doesn’t really matter as a) we all catch up in Uni & early 20s b) not all ‘mixing’ is a good thing at that age

Regarding adding females to male schools – just seems to be a certain class of people (mid-withs not soldly embedded within the comfortable areas of middle class) with point to prove and haters of men are encouraged, even praised, these days

re up/down ‘symbols’ – the site seems like one-way cheerleading we page now. I guess the ones who like to fight will simply register extra accounts to do the ‘down’ posting …

This may be based upon an erroneous assumption that the entire Cat commentariat reads every post, including wordwalls.

Such reading may not be the case. I for one have no idea which post or comment is being referenced – likewise was unaware that I’m supposed to know which comments are deemed important (justifiably or not) by another.

Not saying at all that the complaint isn’t justified – just that I’ve no idea which comment, or even by which commenter, I’m supposed to react to with support.

NB: Working with tonnes of females, I’m well accustomed to “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you” – followed by folded arms & truculent silence.

Now the views here are to be simply declaimed and never challenged. I know a fair number here who will imediately resort to abuse and name calling when they know who is making a comment.

I think the silence of many (including me) was driven by something Cassie raised herself.
That Johanna’s post was really just part of the ongoing Lizzie-Johanna stoush, with Cassie as collateral damage, therefore best left alone.
To be sure, I would have to go back and re-read (which I won’t do) but Dover’s point has merit.
It is possible to make a comment about a member of a group (albeit an odious and unwarranted attack) without that being a racist or anti-Semitic attack.
Example:-
“Noel Pearson is a loud mouth blowhard.” … That is a personal attack on Pearson.
“Noel Pearson is a typical Aboriginal. They are all loud mouth blowhards.” … That is clearly racist.

But I have noted those who remained silent yesterday

Casssie, I was one of the first on this site to offer you sympathy and encouragement – even a little advice on coping with your distress – and I certainly support Israel in their war against Hamas.

But I do not agree with your view of events here yesterday. Your misinterpretation of Johanna’s remarks seemed deliberate, especially considering your standing animosity towards her. I concur with Dover that her remarks might cause offence, but they were not antisemitic. I had intended to make this statement yesterday, but by the time I caught up with the conversation the place had, to quote a fellow Cat, turned into a sewer.

Much of that was due to the OTT dramatics by you and Elizabeth. You twisted comments and made outrageous accusations: that Johanna is antisemitic and that one of the most courageous and honest Kittehs is a coward.

(Then all the hysteria over the wretched thumbs up/down. Caving into tantrums is poor behaviour management, but I understand Dover’s dilemma. He had to do something to stop the grizzling, even though I suspect that most Cats can cope with downticks from time to time and actually liked the function.)

Your comment above is menacing, suggesting lists. Some Cats seem to have felt compelled to express support and explain their silence yesterday. This is the same manipulation which you have, rightly, railed against in the past. Small wonder that it incites resentment in those here who refuse to be manipulated.

I’m sure this shall draw your ire, Cassie, although that wasn’t my intention. You and Elizabeth have much to contribute to The Cat. As does Johanna.

That is all I will say on this matter.

Annabelle Cleeland took the seat from Ryan. I say her at a country footy game a couple of years ago when in Vic during her campaign. Early 30’s IMO at best. I’d prefer those on ag matters to be mid 40’s up having survived bushfires/floods/downturns and well connected to the land. Annabelle could be ok but so far from relatives here and the little she tells us about herself is that she has been a journalist for Fairfax media and could be from a farming family…

3. Tucker, at times looked like he felt he was going to be murdered before he left the room.

4. Half of Putin’s answers were total bullshit.

5. Nothing out of the interview came out that we didn’t already know.

WA government joins RAAF to build emergency accommodation for homeless veterans
Lauren PriceThe West Australian
Fri, 9 February 2024 3:23PM
Comments

Veterans who have found themselves sleeping rough in the streets will soon have temporary housing available, as a government initiative is launched to build emergency accommodation to tackle the unique crisis.

The WA government has joined forces with the Royal Australian Air Force Association to build an emergency accommodation complex — the Andrew Russell Veterans Living Centre (ARVL) — which will have the capacity to house 16 veterans who are at crisis point.

More than 440 veterans and Department of Defence forces come back to Western Australia every year.

Chief executive of RAAFA Michelle Fyfe said that sadly, Perth streets see about 60 veterans sleeping rough each night.

“If we think about the 2021 census data, there were about 60 people who identified as being a veteran and being homeless on the night that the census was taken. So tonight in Perth in Western Australia, it’s quite likely up to 60 veterans who don’t have a place to call home,” she said.

“Andrew Russell Veterans Living Center is about giving them a place to call home.

“It’s about giving them the opportunity to have services, assist them to get back on their feet, and then move back out into the community.”

The unit is set to be built in Cannington, with designs drawn up and the ground ready to “put a shovel in” and start building, however, Ms Fyfe is appealing for public donations to help the worthy, but often forgotten cause.

“What we’re looking for now is the support for the capital funding to do that.

Not at all. I’m very fond of people running businesses, and although I inherited (not started) a half-ownership in a ~ 50-year-old business, I’m pretty well in tune with the problems and the needs. What I’ve always demonstrated is an aversion to bullshit, self-aggrandizement, and blowharding. You would be aware of that by now.

Most certainly, it shows.

Unbecoming – however we’ve learned to not expect any better of you.

Or more pertinently, we’ve never seen even a slither of character from you. And boy does it show whenever we get a gust of blowharding.

Your problem, being a vulnerable narcissist, is that you think people should believe any bullshit you post. That’s just not going to happen, and you should get comfortable with this by now after we’ve all been through.

I do not agree with your insane pedantry of calling the ticks “thumbs” just because the symbol.

I also disagree with you calling it a toy, it was a powerful tool when you did not want to engage in a personal fight.

Example, why would you send what amounts to a personal message over an open forum to a ‘dear’ friend who is on your email list?
Is it any faster?

I doubt it, it is simply to call attention to themselves, but if one would point it out then they would cry abuse.

Also there are a couple of people here who are more than eager to start a stoush for the sake of it.

A shame about the abolition of up & down ticks, as they can be a gauge of opinion on significant topics.

No it wasn’t.
It was a measure of how committed a small number of morons could be to repeatedly executing a few keystrokes to enable rapid-fire multiple ticks. Anyone who has voted multiple times in an online poll knows this is relatively easy.
This was pure and simple gaslighting … of the target, of other readers and Dover himself.
Of course, it didn’t really work on very many people, but it did cause that minority a bit of grief.
I think the first time the gaming became obvious was when “CMD Longtime Lurker” (you know who you are) launched an attack on JC just after Tom’s toons at 4:00 a.m. which accumulated 40-something upticks in a few minutes before 5:00 a.m. when there was virtually no-one commenting.
Of course, JC’s opponents insisted that the ticking was for real because, well, hundreds of disaffected readers who were early risers but too fearful to comment under a pseudonym.
Sure.
This insistence dissipated when Thought Leader pulled 130 ticks on a typically banal post in about 15 minutes.
I don’t know who did that, but it was an epic smack in the chops for the DeNiaLiSts.

Vicki and Roger are correct in that the ticks can be a gauge of opinion, especially, if like me, there is a lot to catch up on and it’s very tedious 6trying to find the comment box to reply. I wasn’t on here yesterday and it seems that I was well out of it.
Cassie: the Jews and Israel have my utmost support and prayers. What we have been seeing the last few months is an utter disgrace. The shock and hurt to decent people caused by the massacre on the 7th of October continues with the anti-semitism here and around the world.
My favourite blog is Jo Nova’s; there there isn’t the regular outbreak of unpleasantness that we see here, requiring tedious scrolling to get past it. Jo also has nested comments and ticks both ways which I like. It’s a pity Dover’s blog is tainted by the nasty outbreaks as there is also, quite often, useful/interesting information here.

The lying by Putin was actually something to behold.

At one time he suggested, Poland was collaborating with the Nazi regime in 1939. It was in fact the Soviet Union that collaborated with Hitler and took a slab of Poland.

Aktually!!

It was a clever little reframing of history.
When Czechoslovakia was broken up Poland took a chunk with Germanies blessing.

From wiki..
On 30 September, Czechoslovakia yielded to the combination of military pressure by Germany, Poland, and Hungary, and diplomatic pressure by Britain and France, and agreed to give up territory to Germany on Munich terms. Then, on 1 October, Czechoslovakia also accepted Polish territorial demands.

In a historical “what if” Poland had been fairly hard line before WW2, and Hitler admired the previous leader.
If hed lived its not beyond the realms of possibility they may have arranged a transfer of population/land at the expense of the Soviets.
In addition Poland refused (and with good reason) a request by the Soviets to allow a few hundred thousand troops to transit to Czechoslovakia to call Hitlers bluff in 1939.
He died in 1935, so Hitler attended his memorial service.

None of which makes Putins skating over Germanies actual treatment any better.

Forensic breakthrough leads to charges over Mosman Park home invasion in 2001
Hannah CrossThe West Australian
Sat, 10 February 2024 11:50AM

Advances in forensic technology have led to a man being charged over a terrifying home invasion in Perth’s western suburbs more than two decades ago.

The aggravated armed robbery took place at a Mosman Park home on the night of May 8, 2001, when two men allegedly entered the home of the victim, who was in his 30s at the time, through an open front door about 10.45pm.

Police say one of the men armed themselves with a kitchen knife and threatened the resident during the horrific ordeal, demanding money and personal property.

The two men allegedly stole several items including mobile phones, cash and cigarettes, before fleeing the scene.

Police say the pair was not known to the victim and the investigation at the time failed to identify any suspects.

But special crime squad detectives made a breakthrough in the case — almost 24 years later — thanks to new forensic technology.

An item of interest was re-examined with the new technology, resulting in a positive match for a 44-year-old man.

Anyway, enough of that. This could be bad news for us, unless the regime acts quickly. While people can feel gratified that the Chinese economy is heading over a cliff , we shouldn’t forget that we enjoy a large trade surplus with China and this will adversely impact us, especially if they head down the drain. If they go down hard, the Aussie dollar is heading to the low 50s and we’ll be in a world of trouble.

China has fallen further into a deflationary spiral. Consumer prices in January were 0.8% lower than in the same month last year, the biggest such drop since 2009. It is another headache for policymakers in Beijing, who are contending with a weak economy, a crashing property market and feeble stockmarkets.

The tiks for me were a means of recognising the effort, research quality , expression and occasionally humurous creativity of a contributor.

I had no concerns about downtiks, why would you? If someone disagrees with your point, that’s not the end of the world.

If there was a serial downticker, so what? He/she wasn’t achieving anything real. Their efforts did not merit the distress expressed.

Ignoring clowns is a far superior response than removing the facility that permits acknowledgement of peoples’ efforts, as well as a simple system for the rating of arguments.

Restore the ticks and ban the boring and arrogantly intrusive ritualised primary school abuse which is the true wrecker of the blog. Take your punch-ups out behind the woodheap and don’t inflict your childishness on the rest of us!

None of that little alt-history was meant to blow Putins horn, it was an acknowledgement of how cleverly (and possibly sincerely) the stew of politics pre WW2 can be twisted by anyone.

The allies should, by treaty, have gone to war with the Soviets when they invaded Finland, instead both Britain and France found loopholes to excuse their inaction.
How much would that have helped convince Hitler they were paper tigers and the treaty with Poland was worthless? (phoney war was on, so it was pre invasion of France)

This is what to consider about China, and I can’t get it out of my head.

Their real estate market is around just under 30% of the economy (GDP). It’s way oversupplied and crashing. Their demographics are shit awful, with some people claiming the fertility rate has hit 1, while in the cities it’s even below 1. The replacement is supposedly 2.1. Crashing real estate markets take a very long time to mend, but combined with a depressed economy, much lower population numbers, and an oversupply, you can’t imagine a worse poisonous cocktail mix.

I really want to get out of Australia entirely asset wise, but it’s impossible. I’m thinking of buying a 12 months put option on the Aussie, because in a year we’ll have an idea what’s going on and pretty much everything I’m speculating will have been discounted…if I’m correct.

Alas even were it Ten cartons, the loss of face cannot be erased.

Hey Junior Cretin. What a load of BS with the thumb dumb dumb silliness. Yesterday I had a big lunch with 4 others to have a lovely Chinese meal. Lots of great food with wine and the Hong Kong Chinese giving us their attention.

Translation:- “The lady-boy made me Pad Thai for lunch and massaged my back.”

Late to catch up on the blog today.
A lot of scrolling …..nothing much sensible to read.
All this crap about up and down thumbs (ticks).
Who cares!
We all have our own opinions on everything, what makes
reading the blog interesting even if I don’t comment!

None of that little alt-history was meant to blow Putins horn, it was an acknowledgement of how cleverly (and possibly sincerely) the stew of politics pre WW2 can be twisted by anyone.

The allies should, by treaty, have gone to war with the Soviets when they invaded Finland, instead both Britain and France found loopholes to excuse their inaction.
How much would that have helped convince Hitler they were paper tigers and the treaty with Poland was worthless? (phoney war was on, so it was pre invasion of France)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franco-British_plans_for_intervention_in_the_Winter_War

A Brit told me that Britain should not have bothered with the Poland treaty because that would have left Germany free to go after the Soviet Union. In I Flew for the Fuhrer Knoke mentioned that the real the enemy was the Soviet Union. There was Operation Unthinkable, a plan to declare war on the SU after the downfall of Germany but it was, rightly in my view, considered too difficult because by then the SU had created a huge military machine.

The Chinese waitress was named Juicy Lucy and she told me that she was more than succulent if you get my drift. Jealous?

Ah, so!

Juicy Lucy was a character in the book “The Virgin Soldiers”, by Leslie Thomas.
Semi-autobiographical, made into a film later.

I’m upset about the removal of the tickometer because I had just decided to always downtick my comments and the very next day the ticks were removed.

I couldn’t care less and I agree with you. An endless discussion about the death of the tickometer is boring. What is to be done? I try to put links relevant to my interests but no-one responds. However I know a few people are interested in the material I post and that’ll be enough; at least for now, maybe, perhaps I’ll get crybaby like at the lack of response and stuffyaall I’ll go my own way.
