    Sorry for the shutdown. Silly-Old Chaucer stuffed up with our new and very complicated format to maintain a clean front page look! We’ve put the old bloke in the storage shed out back—told him it was ‘lockdown’ for his own good! He’s writing limericks and after one week in the shed, this is his best work.
    There was an old farmer from Greece,
    Did terrible things to his geese.
    But he went too far
    With a budgerigar
    And the parrot phoned the police.

    That’s better. Will be in the clutches of some medical scoundrels next week so Merry Christmas all.
    There was a young man from Bombay
    who sailed to Cathay away
    He was strapped to the tiller with a sex crazed gorilla
    and Cathay became a long way away.

      Nothing shocking about that Margaret. Corruption always starts at the top and goes down, like water flowing down the mountain.

    Curiouser and curiouser. If an advert showed a hysterical woman punching holes in the gyprock with a broom handle trying to kill a cockroach and is stopped by her Husband ( there Dan I said Husband, stuff you) pleading with her to “STOP” wouldn`t that be sexist ?. Or a bloke with a sleeping Wife ( there Dan I said Wife, stuff you) in their SUV and he drives quickly over a cattle grid to scare his Wife awake wouldn`t that be sexist?. Or a Lady struggling to turn on a TV having to be told it needs the power turned on, wouldn`t that be sexist? Or a Husband refusing to lend his car to his Wife, the same?.
    Apparently not. I seem to be in a different universe, my Beloved was right after all.

    The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, “Hello.”

    “Mrs Sanders, please.”

    “Speaking.”

    “Mrs. Sanders, this is Doctor Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory.
    When your husband’s doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well…
    We are now uncertain which one belongs to your husband.
    Frankly, either way the results are not too good.”

    “What do you mean?” Mrs. Sanders asks nervously.

    “Well, one of the specimens tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other one tested positive for HIV.
    We can’t tell which is which.”

    “That’s dreadful! Can you do the test again?” questioned Mrs.Sanders.

    “Normally we can, but MEDICARE will only pay for these expensive tests once.”

    “Well, what am I supposed to do now?”

    “The MEDICARE Helpdesk recommend that you drop your husband off somewhere in the middle of town.

    If he finds his way home, don’t sleep with him”.

        We usually don’t give the Yanks much credit in the humour department but those blokes are superb. We aviators who drove Fokker jets called the control lever for speed brakes mounted in the tail the “whoa Camel lever” after Yosemite Sam belting a camel over the head with a blunderbuss and flattening the thing saying ” when I says whoa Camel I means whoa Camel.” The Fokker speed brakes didn’t produce buffeting as do Boeings etc. and were much more effective. In the old days unlike now, if you used the “boards” (speed brakes) in the normal course of events your aviation skills were thought to be a bit remiss and you were liable to invited to morning tea and biscuits with the flight captain, he being the one drinking the tea and eating the biscuits.

      • Aktosplatz 24/12/2020, 4:21 pm

        You have had a very interesting life as a pilot, Bots. I bet you have a few stories behind you.

      • Cliff 24/12/2020, 10:20 pm

        And yet only a few years earlier (before the fuel prices went through the roof), we flew the Diesel 9’s on the clacker until about 20 miles to touchdown and then threw out the boards for a juddering decel.

        Then someone worked out this was costing squillions in unnecessary fuel burn and it fast became what you said Bots – if you touched the speed brake handle before touchdown, you’d blown the descent and approach. And the DC-9 even did that for you if you followed SOPs and armed it for landing (which many of the old school drivers/airframe didn’t like doing because the boards popping out as the main wheels first touched the runway could bigger up their smooth touchdown).

    • Tom 25/12/2020, 6:31 am

      Yes Seadogger, I think ‘the rools’ in the US for the Republicans versus the Democrats for decades now have been very much the same as it has been here in Oz for the Libs versus Labor – the Republicans/Oz Libs have to follow ‘the rools’ to the letter and they will be held to account my the media for the slightest infraction (like not declaring a single bottle of wine as a gift), while the Democrats/Labor can pretty much do what they like (like blatantly cheating to win an election).

      Gough Whitlam once said to one of his ministers who had lost his seat in a federal election “You lost your seat? In an electorate with three cemeteries in it? That was incredibly careless of you, comrade.”

      Trump doesn’t play by ‘the rools’, and copping it sweet when those ‘rools’ are employed against him.

      74 million Americans (and quite possibly quite a few more that that) are hoping he will continue not to.

      Vice President Pence is in the unique position to become a history-making hero to millions of Americans AND many millions more around the world or descending into oblivion as just another swamp-dwelling politician who followed ‘the rools’.

    In another place working for an outfit that had a sea horse logo but owned a company who had another company recruit drivers airframe through yet another company and paid them through the company up the line by one who owned a bank on the Isle of Man, the lovely ladies didn’t have to do any reconciliation of the bar carts for when they emptied a person came along and refilled them. By accident I once met the man in charge of all the bar carts refilling business and he happily informed me that he hadn’t been sober in thirty five years although he insisted his team of underlings remained so. The Chef de Cabine was always a delightful female and carried on a tradition of generosity with a small gift from the bar cart if one pulled off a greaser landing for the pax used to clap and cheer when one did a “greaser” so one felt as famous as a minor soccer player. Mr. Fokkers jets were of a design that one “armed” the lift dumpers that automatically deployed from the upper wing surface when the micro switches on the gear legs met another set of micro switches as the weight came on the wheels. Many of us with an average thirst became accomplished at pulling off greasers for the bar cart booze wasn’t trade store stuff but top shelf stuff. When landing on a longish runway (all runways in the Galaxy are too short as any aviator will opine) if one didn’t arm the lift dumpers and did a smooth touchdown nothing was felt through the seat of the pants, the only thing heard was the faint rumble of the main wheels, and after the pax had deplaned, the clink of decent bottles of booze in our nav bags as we strolled away for the girls would give us a double ration. When it all fell over and the European madness set in the company had to farewell us and use European people and the mob with the Sea Horse logo had to rid itself of the company it didn’t own so it sold the company it didn’t own to the Bank of Gay Paree which it did own, and when that was discovered it was onsold to the agricultural bank of la Belle which it owned too, thence partially to the Poms and then went out of existence and is no more. As Cliff opines we used to get as high as we could as fast as we could and go as fast as we could for as long as we could and then multiply height by 2.5 or 3.0 or whatever, close the schedule adjustment levers, tip over and enjoy the ride. Afterwards some of us went corporate and drove some nice gear, some of which climbed at faster Mach number than airliners cruised and it could be disconcerting to see a bunch of the upper class (in their own minds at least although barely able to sign their own names) consume bottles of grange whilst chewing Nobbys beer nuts. We got arrested once when conducting a ferry flight, but getting arrested in Mother R was a common event. This arrest was strange in that it was more trumped up than any preceding it for we were the first to land there in a couple of weeks due blizzards etc. low cloud and all that sort of stuff and the local commandant’s MIL had outstayed her welcome by that two weeks when Aeroflot couldn’t get in and the commandant wasn’t a happy man. I offered to take her with us if the commandant had us un- arrested and instantly became his new best friend. I asked the interpreter to ascertain just where the commandant would like us to take MIL and understood the one word reply instantly, “anywhere!” We loaded the old bag who looked like a wolf on stilts wearing a fur coat or a mouldy small bear, on board, and there she sat in opulence on thick hand tooled leather with gold fittings, all the bells and whistles, etc. and we dropped her off in a joint called Anadyr just below the Arctic circle and went on our merry way to Anchorage. Corporate stuff was more fun than regular stuff.

    Registrations of electric vehicles rose sharply in 2020, however petrol powered vehicles still dominate the fleet, according to newly released Motor Vehicle Census data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

    “While electric vehicles are still small in number, less than 0.1 per cent of the fleet, the 14,253 electric vehicles registered in 2020 is almost double the previous year,” said Sarah Kiely, Director of ABS Transport Statistics.

    There were 19.8 million registered vehicles in Australia on the 31st of January 2020, an increase of 1.5 per cent from 2019. Diesel registrations grew again in 2020, with diesel powered vehicles now comprising 25.6 per cent of the national fleet. Petrol powered vehicles in 2020 account for 72.7 per cent of the fleet, down from 73.6 per cent in 2019.

    While the national vehicle fleet grew by 1.5 per cent between 2019 and 2020, this was a slower rate of growth than the previous year. All states and territories reported a slow down in growth in 2020, with the exception of Tasmania (remaining steady at 2.6 per cent) and Western Australia (1.5 per cent growth, up from 0.6 per cent in 2019). The Northern Territory was the only state or territory to record an overall fall in the number of vehicles registered, with a decrease of 0.7 per cent.

    Toyota continued to hold out top spot as the most popular vehicle make registered in Australia, with 3.0 million Toyotas registered in 2020. Registrations of Holdens and Fords continue to decrease, with both falling by 5.8 per cent from 2019. Despite the decline, Holden remains the second most popular make and Ford comes in at fourth. Mazda retains its place as the 3rd most popular make registered in Australia and Hyundai rounds out the top 5.

    The 2020 Motor Vehicle Census details the number of registered motor vehicles in Australia and provides information such as vehicle type, vehicle characteristics including the year of manufacture, and type of fuel used.

    For further information see Motor Vehicle Census, Australia (cat. no. 9309.0), available for free download.

    • Sir Peter 27/12/2020, 9:17 am

      Morons! The insane green religion has our fools of politicians destroying our electricity supply, making it unreliable and very expensive, yet at the same time wanting to push demand through the roof by touting electric vehicles. Do the bloody maths! How many megawatts of energy is currently supplied by petrol and diesel- calculate the extra electricity generation capacity to replace it?

      Without 2 or 3 new HELE (high efficiency low emission) coal power plants or a nuclear reactor or two the whole thing is a ludicrous pie-in-the-sky pipe dream dreamt up by non-technical enumerate ignoramuses using windmills and solar panels made in China.

      If coal is a problem (news flash, it ain’t) then build natural gas-powered electricity power stations as a stopgap until we can develop a domestic nuclear industry. As a bonus we could also service a fleet of submarines more effective and reliable than the steam powered Turnbull-Pyne model.

      All of this will require a massive investment in infrastructure but the trick will be to do it without chicom money. Australia is sitting on trillions of dollars tied up in Keating’s superannuation scheme which we can’t touch under the current rules. Change the bloody rules!!

      Without cheap power, a thriving manufacturing sector and nuclear capability Australia is basically f#*@d, and destined to become a Chinese colony.

      • JG 30/12/2020, 12:52 pm

        And the real cost in manufacturing these turbines and solar panels far out weight the return. First mining, transport, smelting, transport, shaping, transport, assembly more transport and install. All use energy from coal and fuel not to mention plastic insulation, batteries, copper/alum cables.
        Any bullshit that says this for of energy is cheaper than coal has their heads up their arse.
        Then there is workers which the idiots claiming they will all find jobs with solar and wind.

  • John 27/12/2020, 8:16 am

    Bots, I looked up Anadyr on Google Maps where the MIL was left!. I suspect that the MIL is still there, it appearing a cheerless hole explaining the fondness of Russians for drink. I suspect 99.5% of people havn`t heard of Anadyr and the other 0.5% wish they hadn`t heard of it.
    I have a late rellie who was in Bomber Command in WW2. I wish he had put down his stories from those days. Too many interesting stories, like yours, to be lost.

    • Botswana O'Hooligan 27/12/2020, 4:41 pm

      There are worse places than Anadyr, try Provideniya Bay on Google and when you find it follow the fiord with the aerodrome at the end of it back out towards the sea and you will see a rock bar across the entrance with a hut situated in the middle of it. The hut houses a NDB (non directional beacon) and the trick is that you “let down” over the NDB and if lucky enough to break visual you proceed up the fiord suitably dotted with wrecked aeroplanes along the ides, a bunch of large rocks painted white and forming “Lenin something or the other” (one is a bit busy to decipher Cyrilic at that point) and then if you are lucky the aerodrome looms into view. I dunno what happens if you are unlucky and wind up in cloud again because the surrounds are a bit like PNG with ice! Not everyone liked Marxist Leninism of course and of course many just swapped their Marxist Leninist hats for the bloated capitalistic ones and continued on as normal, the only change being the bloody hats. Some of the sculptors and statue makers didn’t like the regime and since it was useless to stand up and get counted against it they did it in various other ways. Pretty much all villages, towns, etc. had a statue of Lenin, some several, some had lots and when you look at them they all pretty much have Lenin posed with a hand on one hip. Some of them done by detractors of the system have it so that Lenin’s hand is not placed as how a man places his hand on his hip with the thumb pointing towards his back, but in a feminine way with the thumb pointing forward thus suggesting he was a shirt lifter!

  • John 27/12/2020, 9:42 pm

    Looked it up, saw the ndb but also an airliner complete with contrail at right angles to the fiord!. Great shot. Used to work for DCA in Aust many years ago servicing ndb’s, vor’s, tvasis or anything else that ran off electricity. Not sure with gps if they are still used or not. Interesting is that DCA at the time was run by Arthur Doubleday from Grong Grong and he and farmer neighbour Bill Brill were in Bomber Command in WW2 and were mates with my rellie who was a Navigator on Lancasters. Blokes like that, we cant afford to lose them, but have.
    I think it generally true, though without the slightest evidence, that shirt lifters, in Aust at least rest more comfortably in the left than the right.

  • Aktosplatz 28/12/2020, 9:15 am

    THOUGHT FOR THE DAY.

    An old Doberman starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he’s lost.

    Wandering about, he notices a lion heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

    The old Doberman thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep shit now!”

    Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.

    Just as the lion is about to leap, the old Doberman exclaims loudly,

    “Boy, that was one delicious lion! I wonder, if there are any more around here?”

    Hearing this, the young lion halts his attack in mid-stride, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

    “Whew!,” says the lion, “That was close! That old Doberman nearly had me!”

    Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the lion. So, off he goes.

    The squirrel soon catches up with the lion, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the lion.

    The young lion is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”

    Now, the old Doberman sees the lion coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?,” but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old Doberman loudly says……..

    “Where’s that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another lion!”

    Moral of this story…

    Don’t mess with the old dogs… Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!

    Facts from WUWT

    The climate of Earth is constantly changing! That IS a fact. It has been changing since the Earth was formed. It will CONTINUE to change, until the Sun and the Earth both explode and disappear, in another 5 billion years or so. During the entire existence of the Earth MAN has only been present, in one form or another, for at best, a few million years. Therefore, man has NOT had any impact on the ‘climate’ other than some minor fluctuations. But, now, the climate ‘scientists’ want us to believe that, because of US, the Earth is going to die, in a few short years! If we were able, somehow, to consume ALL of the fossil fuels, AND coal, at one time, what difference would it make, since all of the carbon CAME from the Earths environment in the first place? EVERY single element on or in the Earth follows a cycle, including carbon. At some point in the distant future even carbon (coal) will be returned to the surface to begin another cycle. It’s the same for water, and all other elements. We may have sped up the ‘cycle’ for coal and hydrocarbons by using some of them, but that, too, is a natural process. The best thing humans can do is simply learn to co-exist with the ‘climate’, as we have ALWAYS done in the past! Everyone complains about the weather (climate) but no one can do anything about it.

    • Albert 29/12/2020, 7:52 am

      The major problem at present is the hysteria generated by the members of the ‘Climate Change Religion’ and misinformation about the definition of carbon.
      What is not being discussed by the university boofheads is the enormity of the pollution problem that will result when not to far down the track millions of wind generators and solar panels reach their use by date (18 to 25 years) and the toxic materials of which they are made have to be disposed of.

    • Aktosplatz 29/12/2020, 8:47 am

      True enough, we were taught the ‘Carbon Cycle’ and the ‘Nitrogen Cycle ‘ in school Biology. It’s all there and there is no problem to keep screeching about.

      Vegetation & trees die, then decay, then become compressed as they are buried over time, and over more time, it becomes what we know as coal, burning that releases carbon dioxide and nitrogen into the atmosphere, that’s scrubbed out by rain, and starts ‘photosynthesis on the ground where fresh vegetation is formed.

      And it doesn’t cost anything, it recycles all by itself, in contrast to what Albert mentions about the toxic waste from the so-called ‘Green’ Energy.

      • Graham Richards 04/01/2021, 3:10 pm

        One fact from school days says it all.
        Matter cannot be created nor can it destroyed. It can be altered to take another form but the molecular structure has only been altered. The molecular building blocks still exist.
        Simple experiment———— boil a kettle, result is water vapour which will condense and reform into water. Soluble matter remains as a solid.

      Yairs seadogger, when I was a kid I was tasked with flying a mob of medical people around all over an a regular basis, Merke, Sharpe, and Dome (I think the spelling is correct) and Merke came up with a pregnancy test where the “testee” put a sample of her urine in a vial, added a drop or a soupcon of some elixir or the other, and if the sample exploded, changed colour, or whistled waltzing matilda, she was “up the duff.” The Merke people used ordinary water as a demo, added a few drops of the elixir, and the test proved negative, then they did their thing. Trouble was that the water in Western Qld. didn’t suit their tests and as a result all the water in western Qld. was preggers. I laughed my guts out for two reasons, one was that the “experts” were wrong, and the other was that I was married to a chemist at an age far too young, and we had a five year plan, no kids for five years, and we had four in five and a bit years!!!!!!

    That circuitious argument is a good one DT. Our family get togethers includes 3 or so from the inner Sydney area and as you would expect the main topic of their chat is limited as to whether to buy a smartphone in rosegold or titanium. At the last meetup the weather was hot and like littlies ever since JC played fullback for Jerusalem they played under the hose.
    Says Chaff No 1, ” Don,t you think about the waste water?”
    Self, ” No, but where does that water come from?’.
    Chaff No 1, ” From a dam, a river, from run off”
    Self, “So where has it gone back to?”
    Silence but a dim glimmer of awakening, a shadow of intelligence crossed the brow. If somebody uses their hand in a Rugby maul, why, you kick it so in line with that,
    Self, ” So there is not one atom less water on the earth than 100 million years ago so where is the waste water”.
    At this the Trinity, Huey Duey and Louis or the three wise monkeys, whatever, decided it was pointless talking to this fascist, rose en mass and left me in peace with my memories. Which is only where I wanted to be, anyway.
    But you will have seen ” The war on waste” on the abc . Same argument. Misquoting Banjo`s “Over the Range”,
    “Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
    their views by a range are bounded too”
    No, not the Moonbi range as in the stunningly poignant poem but the range of stupidity and ignorance.

      The Australian – Letters

      “John Mosig (Last Post, 28/12) claims the 10 hottest years in human history have occurred since 1998.

      A notional glass of local wine with the occupying Romans in the Nene Valley, England, in the first century AD might change his mind. Or if he prefers a different drop of history he might enjoy a review of hard evidence from the European glacier studies, ice proxy records from Iceland and agricultural and lake sediment records from China.

      These show simultaneous warmth – comparable with or exceeding that of this decade – across the northern hemisphere and Arctic sea near the start and end of the Medieval Warm Period (980AD and 1220AD).

    How many of you know that Joe Biden has had 2 brain surgeries, one on each side of his head?

    How many people know that Joe had a head full of blood after an aneurysm exploded in his head in 1988?

    How many know that the resulting brain damage from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, as the blood breakdown products bathe the brain, are significant and create permanent damage, let alone the compression and damage due to the jet of blood from the rupture itself?.

    Why has the media not asked for his medical records, list of medications, EEG, or at least an angiogram of his brain’s blood vessels? Multi-aneurysm patients like Mr. Biden have a tendency to form new ones and are recommended to have an angiogram every 5 years; where is the report? Really, the NY Times couldn’t do a piece on this? How about a CT scan to document what his brain looks like or verify he does not have hydrocephalus or a ventricular peritoneal shunt or seizure disorder? Where is the outrage?

    The fact of the matter is the media conspiracy to elect Mr. Biden is unbelievable and wholly liable if he takes the oath of office on January 20, 2021, while overlooking these significant medical issues.

    I mean, really, shouldn’t there be some sort of medical prerequisite for the Office of President of the United States and all of the stress it induces?

    Are we that desperate to install the first black female president? Shouldn’t the first black female president be duly elected on her own merits rather than hiding behind a 78-year-old sub-arachnoid hemorrhage survivor?

    Love him or hate him, you do have to admire Mr. Biden for overcoming all these issues in the last 38 years but this disqualifies him in my eyes to hold the nuclear codes. Hell, in most states, he couldn’t even get a driver’s license without a letter from a neurologist saying he was seizure-free for a year.

    Instead, we have almost elected him the leader of the free world and the keeper of the launch codes with no one knowing the truth, no one asking any health questions! Especially when he can’t remember whom he is running against or who his wife is.

    Whether you are for Biden or against him, please be honest enough to spread the truth about his medical issues before he’s sworn in as our next president with no one knowing the medical issues he suffers from.”

    The TV news, if a memory lapse of old age makes one turn it on, is filled with people wearing masks and queueing up for hours to be tested by a system that may, or may not, be effective. So, here we go, we arise and queue for hours, get the test and IF we test positive what bloody then? Do they award us a with some kind of prize, do they say in tones deferential to a senior citizen, “just park here Sir and missus, a valet will park your carriage, we will book you into the Hilton for however long it takes?

    I’ve read reports that the total number of deaths in the US in 2020 were almost on par with the total number of deaths for the five years before 2020.

    That is, while some, possibly quite a few, doubtlessly died of COVID, those deaths did not cause an appreciable increase in the number of deaths nation wide. (Translation: many if not most (but I accept, not all) who died of COVID would have died of something else in the same time period.)

    The report by John’s Hopkins University stating this has been withdrawn because it did not fit the ‘Orange Man Bad’ meme adopted by all and sundry to ensure he will not be re-elected.

    Here in Australia the number of deaths has been minuscule, even factoring in Victoristan, Does anyone know, has some academic done the sums on what it has cost the economy overall per COVID death? And perhaps throwing in another factor, what it has cost the economy overall per COVID death when the person who died was under the age of (let’s say) 70?

    Another side to this renewed “Buy Australian” movement. I,ve been involved with domestic, aviation and medical electronics for approaching 60 years. And yes people started buying Japanese electronics for a lower price but also because it worked, year in, year out. Yes, even after the warranty ran out.
    On a taxi trip I started chatting to the driver of the Camry taxi about Holdens demise and perceived reliability. He laughed and asked “How many Commodore taxis do you see?.” He opined you wont see Commodore taxis because in a year they are not repairable, every major component is stuffed. This is supported by a rellie whose two Commodores had every major component under the bonnet replaced.. Whereas the taxi drivers 3 year old Camry had nothing but consumables petrol, oil, lubricant, tyres. Same as electronics, people started buying non Australian cars for reliability and finish.
    To compound my irritation it turns out my 7 year old Australian made Frig has used a plastic mount for the bottom door hinge. Yes, the bottom mount that supports the weight of the door and everything in that door. Along with many others that has sagged, the door wont shut properly and it appears the next step in the failure is for the hinge to break entirely and the door falls off.
    Yes, buy Australian but also Australian manufactures should stop selling crap.

      John, way back in 1969, I was on a bus holiday in Europe and sat across from a really interesting man who was a professor at a university in Sydney. He was a science/engineering man, so you might say a ‘real’ professor. We spoke about many things, but one thing he told me stuck with me. He said that designing a mechanical component is relatively easy – what’s hard is designing in the flaw that will make it break AFTER (but not before) the warranty runs out. The centrepoint of a connecting gear needs to be just that tiny bit off centre to ensure wear, for if it’s absolutely ‘on centre’, wear will be minimal, and the component will last for many years, and you can’t have that, because then, people won’t need to buy a new one and that means the factory will not remain viable.

      Plastics achieve the same purpose. They’re softer than metal and therefore wear out. This ‘planned obsolence’ might be all well and good for someone sitting in a board room, but it’s as annoying as hell for the consumer, and when someone (and in the 70s and 80s, it was the Japanese) starts producing competing equipment that works, doesn’t break down two days after the warranty runs out AND is generally cheaper, those same factories end up closing down anyway.

      As they damn near all did in Australia.

      The fact that we were paying the bloke who swept the floors in said factories $110k a year didn’t help a lot either.

      A part of the electricity story that is now via 2021 World Economic Forum …

      Like: great reset, build back better, new green deal.

      “19th December, 2017 – Turnbull announces yet another set of ministerial changes. He abolishes the Minister for Industry indicating his eagerness to see Australia de-industrialised.

      Turnbull also appoints his fourth Minister for Small Business, the minnow Craig Laundy, to ensure that no impact is made in favour of small business. You’ll recall that Tony Abbott, as Prime Minister, made small business a cabinet-level ministry and appointed the high-functioning Bruce Billson as minister. After the coup Turnbull sacked Billson, removed small business from cabinet, and has thrown the portfolio around to four different ministers to ensure none of them had enough time to make a serious impact.

      It is crucial to understand that Turnbull and his ideological ilk want power concentrated in fewer people, to more easily control society. That is why they want to crush small Aussie businesses. They want a society and economy dominated by big corporations, big government and big trade unions.”

    I seem to be accruing irritations at much the same rate as my years. For some time it has irritated me that the media seems averse to saying “aboriginal” and substituting “traditional owners”. They appear advocates of Lewis Carroll whose Bellman in the “Hunting of the Snark” cries “If I tell you three times it must be true”.
    The latest irritation is that any claimant ( and it helps if they are as white as the driven slush) to aboriginality is described in religious tones as ” a proud ?????? woman/man”. Insert whatever native nation or tribe for ???? as you prefer as long as it is not white or celtic or anglo saxon. It`s the acclamation of “proud” that also irritates me. Not to put to fine a point on it, if you have done nothing to merit the pride in yourself, your pride is based on probably being the outcome of a quick shag behind the gunyah.

This went on for several days and was brought to the Matron’s attention, so being a bush raised girl herself she visited the old bloke and got him “onside” and then asked the question.

  • Bob 10/01/2021, 5:31 pm

    As I write to you today, I have no doubt that this letter will find many of you crushed under the weight of despair or perhaps lost in a maze of confusion. It is my hope that by the time you finish reading this letter you will be able to confidently join millions of others who support the president and another four years.

    Let me be clear: Trump will be president for another four years. Biden will not be president. Yes, I know those are shocking words in these crazy days.

    I have been approached by many saying, “It’s over…” and “Trump conceded the election…”. Nothing of the sort has taken place. Go back and listen to the videos all the way through. At no point does Trump even mention Biden’s name. At no point does he say he concedes. He does say that there will be a peaceful transition to a new administration and he does say that this is only the beginning. Those phrases are important to note. Indeed, we will have a new administration made up of a new vice president and cabinet as the current ones have all made their treason complete. I will touch on this in more detail shortly.

    We do well to remember that for more than four years Donald Trump has been five steps ahead of everyone in every attempt to derail him, impeach him, or confound him. For example, he announced on election night in the early hours of the morning that he “didn’t want a dump of ballots at 4AM.” What happened in just a few short hours at almost exactly 4AM? A huge ballot dump took place which showed that he already knew that it was going to take place. That was a public word to the enemies of our country that he was on to them. Also, consider the recent incident at the capitol building in DC. Trump was late to his speaking engagement and then spoke on a number of rehashed things to the crowd of 500K+ but this created a problem. You see, if Trump had spoken on time and briefly, the MAGA crowd would have been at the capitol building with the Antifa faction and likely would have been drawn into the fray by accident and confusion due to the crowd size. With Trump speaking late and long, the MAGA crowd was PROTECTED and SEPARATED from the Antifa groups. It would be very clear that the disguised Antifa people were 95%+ of the people in the building. Again, Trump countered because he was steps ahead of them. This was clearly a staged event meant to blame Trump supporters and try to frame Trump so the 25th amendment could be used by Congress but it failed. Nevermind the numerous videos showing the police opening the gates for Antifa (they didn’t fight their way in) and then leading them throughout the building.

    I say all this as only two examples out of many that at no point has our president been in a fight of desperation.

    Now you may ask, “Why hasn’t Trump arrested anyone yet? Why did this have to go all the way to Congress?” Multiple reasons: first, Trump has been adamant in following the rule of law and the Constitution. He gives everyone, no matter how dirty, an opportunity to do the right thing (sometimes with warnings such as the phone call with the Georgia Secretary of State recently). He pushed cases through the courts, he presented evidence to the legislatures, and he even told the vice president to do the right thing. But with the betrayal by Pence and Congress, the treason is now complete and nobody can say that Trump did not allow the process to finish before acting. Second, in order to drain the swamp you have to know who are the swamp creatures. They can blend in very well with the crowds. But the false event in the capitol revealed the final traitors for who they were regardless of party affiliation. Trump flushed them out of hiding.

    I need to take a moment to speak on Pence. With his treason completed, many of you may not know of his dealings and political posturing prior to the infamous day in the capitol. Pence was already wheeling and dealing way back during the 2016 election season with…wait for it….Paul Ryan. Remember Ryan? The RINO speaker of the house? Look at these emails that were recently revealed:

    Pence-Ryan Emails

    Pence was also involved with a scheme to oust Trump sometime during his first four years that was orchestrated by Rod Rosenstein and supported by the Clintons. The plan: get rid of Trump, become president and then appoint Rod Rosenstein as the new VP. Why would they want that? Because they felt Pence could be controlled. See these links for the 3 part series for more information:

    Part 1

    Part 2

    Part 3

    More could be said but I don’t want this letter to become more of a book than it already is. Suffice it to say that when Trump said at the DC rally that he hoped Pence would do the right thing, he already knew what he was going to do but was, yet again, giving the man space to choose to do the right thing.

    Now, nobody has been more supportive of Trump than Lin Wood. This man’s career has been fighting defamation lawsuits which means that he doesn’t say things, no matter how outrageous they may seem, without them being true as he knows the consequences of slander. With this in mind, Lin Wood has become a fountain of information and leaks of hitherto unknown information revealing some of the depths of corruption and evil in our highest offices. This is the same man who recently said that arrests are coming over the next few days. He called Pence a traitor well before the counting of the elector votes on the 6th. But did you know that he also said that the president, following the capitol incident, left DC on a “Doomsday” aircraft (used for communications in the event of a nuclear war) with his family and was in Abilene, TX. This aircraft was confirmed by both flight trackers and eyes on the ground. In short, he is a trustworthy source of information. If you have a means to follow Lin Wood on Parler, I would highly recommend that you do so to stay abreast of things taking place. You can also listen to this podcast: Podcast

    So, what comes next? I don’t have the particulars but I can give you milestones to watch for as the coming days unfold:

    Expect the emergency broadcast system to be activated. The FCC just recently released a memorandum speaking to the requirements under Federal law to send messages from the president to the public. See this link
    Expect confusion. We are in a battle for our republic against elites that are attempting the very coup that they are accusing Trump of doing. In battle, there will be disinformation but know that plans are being fulfilled.
    Expect high profile arrests to take place over the next 12 days and at any time. You may wake one morning to find someone in high office is no longer there.
    Expect this to be a bumpy ride to the very end. This is not a television show where things are resolved in 45 minutes.
    Expect more bombshell evidence to be released between now and Jan. 20th.
    Expect some sort of internet blackout or outage: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Gmail are likely going to be affected. If you don’t have alternate forms of communication established now, it would be a good idea to start forming them even if it’s just checking on your nextdoor neighbors.
    Expect Trump to be inaugurated on Jan 20th!
    Expect the executive order from 2018 and/or the Insurrection Act to be enacted. This DOES NOT mean martial law. Remember that we have been under a state of emergency since 2018 which gives the president many powers to act.
    These things may happen out of the order listed and some may happen multiple times. As I have been watching closely, many things have been and are in play as we speak. Remember that Trump has not and will not give up. He actually takes his oath of office to defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic very seriously. This is why they are so panicked in DC: they know that Trump will fight while Congress just rolls over.

    I’ve mentioned this before but it bears repeating. None of us would have believed what we all now know except that Trump and his team have painstakingly taken the time to show the public. Want to show what Congress thinks of you? Highlight that the stimulus bill only sent $600 to each American but billions to other countries (payoffs, money laundering). Want to show the extent of collusion with the CCP at all levels of government? Bring multiple lawsuits against the election fraud from the local courts all the way to the Supreme Court which will show just how brazenly treasonous the judges are. Want the public to see how rigged the election system has been for many years? Present the evidence openly as we have seen. Even this week we have sworn testimony out of Italy that the Leonardo defense contractor used satellites to change the votes from our election in the USA from Italy. These Dominion voting machines were actively sending data to Germany, Serbia, China, Iran, and now Rome. This corruption is MUCH bigger than any of us expected but none of us would have believed it until now. This is why things seem to have taken so long.

    Now, the American public is awake and ready to take back their long forgotten responsibilities to hold the elected officials accountable. I have heard from many of you how upset you are with the obvious and willful disregard for the truth and for justice.

    As the days unfold, let’s maintain communications among ourselves and try to help our neighbor to understand what is happening. Turn off the television as they have demonstrated they are clearly only falsifying the media to maintain control over your thinking. Do not despair but pray for our country, for Trump and his supporters, and for a national repentance to be stirred nationwide.

    The next 12 days will be something to tell the grandchildren! It’s 1776 all over again!

      Thank you Bob. I agree with most of what you have said. I do not think Trump will be inaugurated on 20th January. There is a lot of information which needs to be revealed to the American public and the world over the next few weeks. I think Trump will be inaugurated on 4th March. A date which started with the second inauguration of George Washington and continued until Roosevelt when the inauguration date was changed to the 20th January when the US became a corporation…just my opinion at this stage.

OK, one has to don a mask etc.etc. in the area but when one steps a pace outside that area all is OK so if one uses logic, something sadly lacking in our public servants or politicians, one can be “a little bit pregnant” as it were, and that simply defies logic. The morrow will see us outside the boundary at the “new” selection so we will go to Woollies and the Dan’s and the baker and candlestick maker there maskless, shop and then return to the the “greater” Brisbane area, and succumb to the constraints.

      Yes Bots it’s totally illogical and (dare I say it?) unscientific. Just think about the movements of a virus in the environment and put it against these silly rules. And this knee jerk response was all over one imported positive test from outside the State.

      The ‘authorities’ said yesterday they are ‘disappointed’ that more people did not come forward for testing ( even though there were curfew like restrictions in place).People are realising that the best way to reduce the number of positive tests is to reduce the total number of tests in the first place. Duh!!

      It seems to be more of the Ms Young & Pallychook’s fondness for demonstrating this sort of control over the general public , because they know they can.

    These tests are only good for the minute they were taken, end of story. We used to have to get an HIV test each three months in Russia but our wives didn’t if they were Russian Nationals.

    Its time to cut the gravy train for smidgen Aboriginals.
    There are only 47,000 full-blooded Aborigines left in Australia so the remainder have parents that are educated in Western culture.

    I’m happy to support those 47,000 to lift them into Western culture.

    The Voice to be informed!

    • Cliff 14/01/2021, 4:37 am

      PW, you say “I’m happy to support those 47,000 to lift them into Western culture.”

      But… but… but… aren’t we ONE and free?

      I can’t disagree with your admirable sentiments, but they show the utter fallacy of the recent re-wording of the national anthem.

      Perhaps (and on too many cases, perhaps not) with the best of intentions, all this First Nation, pre-invasion and we live on occupied land nonsense is having quite the opposite effect.

      If those who tout it really believed it to be true, they should give back the ‘stolen land’ they ‘occupy’ (to whom, I hear you say?) and return to the land their forebears came from – and see if there’s some place ANYWHERE in this world that has not been ‘occupied’ by someone taking it from someone who, 99 times out of 100, took it from someone else.

      Who took it from someone else.

      Who took it from someone else.

      • Neville 14/01/2021, 11:11 am

        Precisely, Cliff.
        Similarly, peoples of central an western Asia need compensation and the return of the lands of their forebears from Genghis Khan, and peoples of the eastern Mediterranean need compensation and the return of the lands of their forebears, etc, etc, etc …
        (/s, by the way)

      • Albert 15/01/2021, 9:56 am

        Cliff, while the so-called academic experts argue the toss about who and what were the first inhabitants of this land there is in between ample evidence that our Aboriginals were definitely not the first to occupy this country.
        The hogwash about the British invasion and colonisation of Australia is nothing more than a convenient argument in support of the “First Nation” claims. The ancestors of the current crop of Aborigines are in fact exactly what they accuse the British of being and their inclusion in the constitution as the “First Nation” would be a travesty that divides us even further.

    • Ian A 15/01/2021, 12:44 pm

      Actually PW, when the Voice is appointed (after a farcical referendum), I wouldn’t be surprised if the smidgen Abos and Fauxbos get more welfare than real Aboriginal people, on the basis that they are “more vulnerable”.

    I see that CH7 Sunrise’s Matt Doran has now come out as a Trump Hater.
    Another ex ABC “journalist” speaking on Mcauley Culkin’s proposal to digitally remove Trump’s cameo performance in Home Alone 2.
    Seriously, a couple of good points from the panel one saying they have sunk to the depths of Cancel Culture, but Doran was not amused.
    These are the algae that create hate and not worth their journalistic plaque. Does he no realise he’s cancelling 50% of the population?

    We really do need a LIST of all these swamp dwellers and play their game with addresses provided!

    • Aktosplatz 15/01/2021, 1:15 pm

      The Main Stream Media hate Conservatives. They always have, at least, since the 1970s.

      Not only Donald Trump, look at George Pell, Tony Abbott, Andrew Bolt (who has tried to be “friends” with the Left), Craig Kelly, George Christensen and other like minded conservatives. BTW George Pell started to earn the hatred of the Left when he maintained Climate Change was in the hands of God, rather than mankind. The child abuse stuff came later.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 15/01/2021, 11:09 am

    When someone digs up the first people stone axe I had buried in the UK all hell is going to break loose about land rights etc. I gave a Pom archaeologist two stone axes about thirty years ago on the proviso he buried one where it would be found “bye and bye.” That’ll learn them for our first mob mob will take the credit for Stonehenge, Saracen stones, the industrial revolution and all sorts of mind blowing stuff.

    I see that ‘American Thinker’, one of the better (in my opinion) conservative US blogs, has disabled comments to its articles. (Comments to each article numbered in the multiple thousands,)

    On the advice of its lawyers, it has also published an ‘unreserved apology’ to Dominion stating that there is absolutely no evidence that Dominion voting machines were programmed to skew voting results.

  • Ian A 16/01/2021, 8:24 am

    In the wake of the upheavals in the USA Republic, is it worth staying with the Monarchy?

    I am not a Royalist and so have been rather well inclined towards our being a Republic.

    However the happenings in the USA have made me think.

    I am reading a book about Kings & Kingdoms and this very important point was made which I have found helpful. The author is residing in England.
    (quote):-
    ‘In the UK where there is Constitutional Monarchy, the Queen reigns but does not rule. That power resides in the elected Government. The big advantage of that is that the armed forces and the courts are not under government control directly, but are responsible to the Queen.

    The Monarchy is valued not so much for the power it wields as for the power it keeps from others.’ (unquote)

    That’s a very good point.

    • Neville 16/01/2021, 12:19 pm

      Another thing, Akto. Apparently (IIRC), throughout history, a power-balanced (ie: constitutional or some similar form) Monarchy turns out to be the most stable civilisation.

    • luk1955 16/01/2021, 1:41 pm

      Akto, under a republic, we will not be allowed to own property, or anything else. Better watch what you wish for. That is under the Constitution of the new republic.

      • DT 17/01/2021, 11:22 am

        One of the reasons the Republican Movement have given for changing from the Commonwealth of Australia to republic is to get rid of the Constitution.

        They want to write a new constitution to do away with the constitutional laws that stand in their way.

        Even now former Labor Premier of NSW Bob Carr said during the referendum that major changes were not needed, he recommended minimal change and replacing the title Governor General with President.

        That no other changes be made apart from becoming a republic, that the president would still be appointed by the government prime minister and cabinet.

        He warned against changes that would end up removing the checks and balances now provided.

        But did not comment on the UN treaties and agreements our politicians have used to get around constitutional laws. But using the Republican model this would probably become easier to do.

  • PW 16/01/2021, 1:41 pm

    So we are now told we only have 60 harvests left.
    It must be so draining to rise every morning to face doom and gloom.
    These psychiatric disorders have increased ever since families were curtailed in turning over their members after noticing brains edging into the fantasy worlds.
    My bet is that these are actually undet psychiatric care in the form of bipolar. Pity these psychs couldn’t spill the beans to save us all.

      An interesting issue at the 2016, raised, believe it or not by Michael Moore, who hates Trump. But this time he was singing his praises.
      General Motors in Chicago had announced they were closing their operations and moving to Mexico where labour was considered to be considerably cheaper.

      Trump ( on the campaign trail) warned, that if he is elected , he will slap 35% tariff on all GM products made in Mexico.

      General Motors stayed and jobs were saved.

      So what will happen now?

    Here we are months later and here he is still alive, and has just put out a video saying “My colleagues and I have been learning and thinking”.

    Motor-Mouth Morrison was at it again today with his babbling about Australia Day and how hard it was for the convicts landing on our shores. It appears that he is too ignorant to realise the true history of the first fleet landing in Botany Bay being on the 20th of January. He is also ignorant of the fact that Australia Day really has nothing to do with Cook’s landing but is supposed to be a celebration of the day in 1949 when Australians officially ceased to be British subjects and became Australian subjects.

    • Neville 22/01/2021, 10:54 am

    These effwits need to understand that if they choose to be offended its OK but just go, stick to you guns don’t accept it and STFU.
    As Anthony Mundine attacking the PM and telling jim to read up on the hisory of Abbos, well I suggest he also needs to.
    The divide is getting bigger and bigger. I’m turning more against these people everytime I hear of this shit and am waiting for THEIR thank you in bringing them out of the stone age.
