Actually, I should add to my treatise above, that the repugnance toward values like education, work, discipline etc is fortified by the insistence that they are ‘white’, and to embrace them is to sell out black culture by trying to be white.

Reading “The Eagle and the Rising Sun” – General Douglas MacArthur was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his “conspicuous leadership in preparing the Philippine Islands to resist conquest, and his calm judgement in each crisis which inspired his troops. The citation failed to mention his loss of the Philippines led to the worst disaster in U.S. military history, and the surrender of 78,000 American and Filipino Prisoners of war to the Japanese.

The proliferation argument about civilian nuclear power is a crock.

The entire anti argument is nonsense, from timelines to the inherent dangers.

Anyone who has travelled, and not even extensively, has seen the nuclear power plants in Europe and elsewhere. These in the most densely populated areas on Earth.

The last garbage “argument” involved Fukushima, pretending the plant disintegrated because faulty, rather than by tsunami. The disastrous siting of the place was completely ignored.

The problem was a tsunami much worse than the design case and failure to ensure the back up generators would not flood. The again they wouldn’t have if it had merely been the worst assumed design case. Sometimes you are sol.

And even the total meltdown at Chernobyl caused relatively few deaths, many of those the result of the Russian approach to controlling the fire, a mix of brute force and blind courage. The men who flew the helicopters to moderate the reaction (dropping boron, IIRC) knew that they were doomed, but did the job anyway.

Anyone who has travelled, and not even extensively, has seen the nuclear power plants in Europe and elsewhere. These in the most densely populated areas on Earth.

For what it is worth, I suspect that the high numbers of reactors in Europe, combined with Chernobyl, convinced the Soviets of the futility of invading NATO. The idea of fighting even a conventional war, with thousands of hyper velocity armour piercing anti-tank rounds being fired in every direction, was plainly suicidal. Within five years, the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact were in the dustbin of history, where they deserved to go.

Whenever I hear ‘soft on drugs’ I tend to become a little agitated.

I have spent the past five days in Adelaide with a woman who was confronting the ultimate outcome of addiction. Her son was assaulted and pushed down a flight of stairs by fellow residents of an Adelaide public housing building devoted to accomodation for societal detritus. He is in a coma.

Police say that he was attacked because fellow residents believed that he had a ‘stash’.

Why he was in Adelaide and not in QLD near his Mum was apparently due to his predilection for shacking up with aboriginal women who the junkies love apparently because they come with money. My briefer told me that he had once turned up at his Mum’s place with one of these dollies in tow. The result was predictable.

She was not unknown to our service club. In no way was she on top of life. All four kids were disasters to various extents. She was not a particularly nice person, but she was deserving of support because she had no other source of help.

So I found myself on a flight to Adelaide with a woman who wept all the way and with no understanding of my utter incompetence to confront the world that I was about to experience.

In summary:

Her siblings. All walked away except for one brother who obviously held her in contempt but threw himself at the problem.

Her kids. MIA.

Medical people: First class and tireless. I asked at what point they will give up? “We won’t”.

Police: Pretty good, but the family liaison woman made things worse in my view.

Public Housing organisations: Pigs.

Centerlink: I have no idea what they were talking about. They were suspicious of my presence and told me so.

Social workers: They were very good. One told me firmly to keep my distance or I would become caught up. “You are just the taxi driver”. Good advice. She also said that there was no solution. “If he survives, NDIS will take over and she will return to QLD.

A Catholic welfare organisation: Alerted by a cousin apparently. They took over organising the cleaning of his putrid flat and dealing with the public housing creeps.

NDIS: Creeps.

Me: Bewildered. I won’t do this again, I’m way out of my depth.

All those people, all that effort and emotion, and all that money because of frikn drugs.

This song represents who I am: a badass CEO and female rapper, who’s ready to take on Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and any other place that oppresses individual uniqueness and self expression. We wanted this video to give people a taste of what it’s like to have synesthesia, so it kind of feels like an LSD acid trip, and has a bit of the “burning man vibe.” Just like art and fashion of the unfortunately murdered Gianni Versace, the visuals of this cinematography feature bright bold colors and sexuality, but with a North African bedouin twist (as opposed to Greco-Roman).

Premier slams ‘disgusting’ footage of Eddie Betts’s kids targeted by racist slurs
By mikaela mulveney

and alexi demetriadi

  • NSW Political Reporter
  • 3:35PM March 29, 2024
  • 11 Comments

Victorian police are investigating “sickening” footage of Eddie Betts’s children and friends targeted by racial abuse as the premier slammed the incident and the AFL world came out in force for its former champion
Indigenous great Mr Betts, who played for Carlton and Adelaide, shared the video to Instagram on Thursday night, which showed a car slowly driving past his Victorian home at about 8:30pm where kids were playing basketball, yelling the N-word multiple times.
“Aboriginal kids deserve to be able to play safely, free from racism and abuse over the fence,” Mr Betts said.
“We are not even safe in our own homes. If you know who this is please let me them know that I’m open to having a chat about how much this hurts our kids.”
Victoria Police confirmed on Friday afternoon it had received “information” in relation to the incident and was currently investigating, urging anyone who knew more to contact Crime Stoppers.

Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan said that there was no place for racism in the state, saying her heart went out to the Betts family and children.

Does this mean the cops will investigate use of the term “White count”, when you refuse to hand over money to one of the indigenous?

Sancho Panzer, March 29, 2024 2:14 pm.

Nek minnit, money gawn and customer sobbing on A Current Affair.

We had a whole Royal Commission that found it was the banks’ fault that a customer could not say no when offered a loan. – and no one contested this finding because of fear.
Now. it is the banks who should check whether the applicant is lying on income, lying on other debts, lying on other assets.
Not to protect the banks’ interest via its standard credit rules, no, to protect the customer’s solvency. How far do we go to make a counter-party check out whether the first party is acting in their best interests of prudence and risk exposure?
It is a bank’s purpose to offer credit. Whether the customer takes that credit on the agreed terms is their business.

More regulation just continuing the infantilisation of the citizens.

Note: I know there were some bad employees exposed in the RC who faked signatures etc., who should have gone to jail, but even then, the customer could have said: “No, that sounds too good to be true” when/if the statements came.

Army ends beard ban, by royal commandKing gives approval for soldiers to grow facial hair — but with strict rules on length and shape
Larisa Brown
, Defence Editor
Thursday March 28 2024, 10.35pm GMT, The Times

Soldiers and officers can finally grow beards while serving in the army in a policy change that required the King’s approval.
Beards must be neat and are subject to review, explained the British Army’s most senior non-commissioned officer in a four-minute video message to troops.
According to the policy, only a “full set beard” is allowed. The length must be between 2.5mm and 25.5mm (one inch) and must be trimmed off the cheekbones and neck. There must be “no patchy or uneven growth” and “no exaggerated colours”.

The new guidance on beards’ length and shape
Warrant Officer Class 1 Paul Carney said the new policy would come into effect immediately to allow soldiers to stop shaving over the Easter holidays. “Getting to an outcome has taken a bit longer than expected due to the larger number of stakeholders that were involved, including His Majesty the King, our politicians and our allies.
“CGS [chief of the general staff] has taken account of your views and has decided the appearance policy will change with our officers and soldiers being allowed to grow beards,” he said.
Carney said that “the beards have to be neat” and “our standards can’t stop”. The beards will be inspected once troops return from Easter leave. It is understood that the King approved the decision on Thursday.

I’ve received an email from my electrickery provider stating they would upgrade my ‘trickery meter to a ‘smart’ meter. Ho hum.

I’m inclined to opt out, however there was an implication that estimated readings may occur as a result of rejecting a ‘smart’ meter. The latter also comes with an as-yet-unquantified increase in costs (on top of the recent increases).

Most people have no idea of the resources/time and money consumed by one dysfunctional family.

We had a pair of junkies with a couple of kids back when I had the food shop.
Wed give the kids a huge pile of leftovers once a week 2-3 kgs of the stuff.
Youd almost call it ‘facilitating’ the parents, except there was zero chance any money was being diverted from food to drugs, they hoovered everything.
Provided with a unit, it was almost completely bare, no tv/table etc, just a couple of mattresses on the floor, no cooking or even eating utensils.
About twice weekly visits from child protection.
Plus 2 or 3 other government / private charity/monitoring mobs as well.
A constant hum of people around them.

Since the novel I’ve been reading just now has a space capable flying Audi, I have to do this one.

Heavy Metal intro (1981)

I suspect Elon got the idea to launch his Tesla from this clip.

(The video is actually a mashup of the opening sequence with the track from the final credits, but it fits just perfectly. I saw the movie at the flicks when it came out, very good stuff.)

I’m inclined to opt out, however there was an implication that estimated readings may occur as a result of rejecting a ‘smart’ meter. The latter also comes with an as-yet-unquantified increase in costs (on top of the recent increases).

Opt out while you can, or accept that you’re giving them the power to control individual appliances in your home.

Whatever you do don’t get a smart meter. We’ve been threatened. F off. Over estimated several times. Keep a check on the meter reading. We were overcharged $1400 over several bills. Remember the old meter will run slow as it gets older.

IS DOGE COIN THE MARK OF THE BEAST?

This Doge?

The Doge of Venice was the highest role of authority within the Republic of Venice (697 CE to 1797 CE). The word “Doge” originates from the Latin word “Dux,” which translates to “leader” or “Duke.”

The Doge of Venice acted as both the head of state and head of the Venetian oligarchy. Doges were elected for life through a complex voting process.

I think Venice had its own (non-virtual) coinage.

When the revolution comes, bitcoin in all its variants will be like Keyser Soze: ‘just like that – poof – he’s gone’.

Alice Springs curfew ‘needs to be longer and wider’
By joanna panagopoulos

  • Reporter

and paul garvey

Calls are growing to extend the length and area of the two-week curfew for children under 18 in Alice Springs to give residents some “respite”, as community ­figures say they are losing hope in other short or medium-term ­solutions to stop riots and violence in the red centre.
As the curfew came into effect on Thursday night, three boys aged 12, 13 and 17 were arrested just outside the Alice Springs curfew zone after allegedly threatening residents with a firearm and stealing two vehicles.
Alice Springs Mayor Matt Paterson said the sheer number of police required for the curfew operation meant “it can’t be forever” but there should be an extension if it works to reduce crime.
“The level of anxiety the other day with the riots was something I’ve never experienced in the community before … If it works then, yes, I would suggest they should keep it in,” he said.
“In the past two weeks, two people have lost their lives, and a 16-year-old was horrendously bashed in the middle of the street. If it saves someone’s life, we can’t measure that.”
After more than 100 people ­rioted in Alice Springs and cornered one of the town’s most popular pubs on Tuesday, which police say they did not have the resources to control, Northern Territory Chief Minister Eva Lawler vowed to send 58 more police officers to clear kids into homes or government facilities between 6pm and 6am.
Mr Paterson called for the federal government to step in when the curfew lifts, saying the region needs to get more resources from somewhere.
“The police are here for a short time and what happens then?” he said.
Action for Alice founder Darren Clark said there were “no short-term solutions” to curbing the youth crime problem.
“But we needed some respite,” he added. “It’s a long, long, long-term fix to get these young kids educated, get them into safe homes, into employment. I don’t think it can be stopped in the ­interim or in the short term.”
Independent MLA Robin Lambley said the curfew in Alice needed to be extended for at least three months and across the whole town.
“There is now a displacement of the problem into residential areas in town. It’s just moving out. We need a curfew across the whole town, not just out in the suburbs.”
Ms Lambley called for a full audit of government-funded organisations on the ground, which she said weren’t held to account.
“This is political. The fact the government doesn’t choose to question the delivery of services by government-funded organisations, they don’t want to lose support of big, powerful organisations in Alice Springs,” she said.
National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services chair Karly Warner said curfews simply pushed youth crime beyond the borders and “out of view”.
“Policies that result in children … being over-policed is a problem, not a solution. They are dangerous, and there is a potential for this to result in further tragedy for the community and for children,” she said. “We need to prioritise support for children … which includes making sure they have a safe place to go, making sure there is adequate housing, and ­reducing overcrowding.”
The riots in town erupted after a funeral was held on Tuesday for an 18-year-old man who had been killed in a car crash earlier this month. Ms Warner said had there been community supports in place following the funeral, the riots could have been stopped.
Geoff Gallop, the last premier to introduce a curfew on children entering Perth’s Northbridge entertainment district after dark in 2003, said the success or failure of Alice Springs policy depended on whether authorities followed up on why the children breaching curfews were out on the street to begin with, and whether their homes were safe to return to.
Former NT Labor MP Scott McConnell said getting children to attend school was still not being prioritised.
“Most press releases are about the need for more police officers,” he said. “We can’t recruit, train and retain police to those roles, so we need a different approach.

we can become complacent around risk

for a 1000000 times something doesn’t go wrong and and then when it does … suddenly nothing bad happens

and then one day it goes wrong … and it goes so utterly and completely wrong that a ship takes out a bridge and screws everything big-time

Trap for Young Player news (the Hun):

Brisbane Lions players have split from their partners and the club has held a crisis meeting over an end of season trip to Vegas.

The winless Lions called the meeting of their leaders late on Good Friday to discuss revelations that rifts occurred on that holiday to the United States.

The Herald Sun understands that one of the members of the travelling party accidentally uploaded a WhatsApp group chat to iCloud on his Apple Phone.

That person’s partner accessed the group chat back home in Australia and read messages that detailed what was happening in the US.

Whoopsie. What goes on the trip, stays on the trip.

On a footy trip quite some years back, a young bloke decided to pull out a (Polaroid) camera out of his bag to capture some – reasonably harmless, by the way – shenanigans on the bus.

A couple of clips around the ear from the team’s full back and the camera being slung out the window sorted that out.
