Aussie Senator suing over Aussie being an Aussie (I.E. an asshole)

I didn't enjoy the fact that the article didn't print up the lead up to the exchange. But otherwise.

Aussies are an upside down and backwards people. I suspect it has something to do with the Coriolis Effect. They are devolving. On the upside, soon they won't be revolting, they'll just be volting (which will probably be achieved by sticking their dicks in light sockets.)

I got hit with a gov't shitstorm, and then while I was out spitting on that fire, my neighbors decided it would be a good time to cut down most of my banana trees.    I actually thought everyone liked the banana trees, so it was likely just intentionally farking with me.

Anywho, back to the story:

My favorite out-of-touch-with-daily-life incident was when China opened up a new mega-highway from the airport to Beijing for the Olympics. 

This was circa 1995 when China was in the running for the 2000 Olympics, and an IOC team was coming to inspect their bid and infrastructure.  So they built this modern highway from the airport to city center to impress the IOC group.  [they also spray painted dead grass green along the route -- and no fooling part of their slogan was Green Games]

So for the inaugural ride on the fancy new highway, retired but still paramount leader Deng Xiao Ping and other high muckety-mucks rode in a few spiffy-for-China SUV's.  They pulled up to the toll booth as the inaugural customers and then there was nervousness as they weren't sure if they should pay or drive through or why they stopped anyway.  To break the tension, someone jokingly asked nonagenarian Deng if he wanted to pay the toll.  His response: "I haven't carried money since 1927."  And everybody had a good laugh.  Someone paid the toll, life went on, China was really angry when their bid was rejected ...

Some folks investigated, and indeed Deng spent 1921 - 27 studying abroad first in Paris, then Moscow.  He returned to China in 1927 for a life as a communist revolutionary.  And apparently never needed to use money for the next nearly 70 years. 

Didn't he once barter an ostrich coat for a year's rent?  I mean, if you monetize a garment, is that really not using money?

Seriously.  I hope you do okay in China.  There are trends there that would make me a bit uneasy.  And I don't just mean banana tree vigilantes.  Like their new social credit system.  I would say more, but I don't want to, you know... 

Except, of course, "Xi is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life."

Itz - hey, she shags lots of blokes!  And then criticizes blokes!  Wots up with that, eh, mate?  Mebbe it is the Coriolis effect, or perhaps the "light sockets" have the wrong voltage "down under," wot? 

Does Knicks know we're back online, btw?  I miss him.

LOL

Well it's like this you see;

Mr. Leyonhjelm said the remark was in response to Ms. Hanson-Young saying “something along the lines of all men being rapists.”

Mr. Leyonhjelm recently used parliamentary resources to determine the number of times Ms. Hanson-Young has been ordered to withdraw comments she had made about other politicians. According to one government report, she has been asked to retract remarks 26 times since 2012, including instances where she called her fellow lawmakers “racist,” “misogynistic” and “corrupt.”

Today, new New York Times editorial board hire Sarah Jeong.

Oh dear!!!
Of course, everyone knows it's ok...because White people, especially White males, are the only people that it's ok to spew hatred at/of these days.

This alleged tweet, printed in the Tim Blair article...and allegedly written by her, reads;

'oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men'.

#####

And there is wonderment that angry White males were on the march in Charlottesville! … and there are White nationalists in America.

Regardless - they paint a picture that every border case is a lost kid situation. 

No, they didn't. They painted the picture that over 3,000 kids were unwillingly separated from their parents, which is number provided them by the administration.

Do you expect the border patrol to decide case by case which parent/kid combinations get to enter and stay, no questions asked?  To let everyone in?  What, exactly?

They could, I don't know, do what they did before the Trump Administration instituted a zero tolerance policy this spring that they knew full well would result in kids being taken from their parents.  But for Trump the cruelty is the point.  They saw the separation policy as a deterrent. 

That you would argue that they had no choice makes clear that you either aren't following the story, or that you have no interest in discussing this in good faith.

Children were put in foster care under the Obama administration after parents were deported.  And others, like now, were able to be placed with relatives in the US.

We are trying to LOWER the entries at the border.  Please - make a better effort in understanding this.

The "3000" are the unfortunate who have been temporarily caught up in the changing system.

Your sophistry is quaint.

"the changing system" was tried the year before by the administration. They knew that this issue existed, but to them it was a feature rather than a bug.

They were caught up in an intentional play by Trump, as he admitted.

I gave you the numbers of unaccompanied minors - you probably have me on ignore, but the bogus article you posted remains bogus.

Good news!

bambu-ilk were wondering, seeking clarification.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/jul/25/us-australia-alliance-rock-solid-mike-pompeo-says

US-Australia alliance 'rock solid', Mike Pompeo says

A quick look at the archives confirms my suspicion.

You posted that already, with similar ebullience.

Just a moment, while I look up the meaning of ebullience. [we only have plain English downunder]

Suspicion?
I couldn't remember if I had posted it before or not...and could not go check, as the other site/forum was kaput.

Not like I'm a serial double-up poster.

See now, I noted what you noted about what was said to have been said.

The report on how many apologies were demanded of the woman are worthless, given that the men don't necessarily demand apologies from men. but they do of the woman.

Possibly not. but the story didn't much explain oin one direction of the other. It was a fer shit article, about a shit fer brains senator in, well you know what kind of pile it is.

Any doubt that the poor white vote is what cost HRC the election? She kept pushing the new liberal elite agenda which seemed to have a strange outside finance odor. Doesnt everyone love cheap foreign oil with no dirty coal mines and cheap manual labor from foreign lands and the moderate rebels who just want the freedom to worship? It looks as if Cuomo in NY wants a piece of the pie. Open borders, free universities with open enrolment, free health care.

---Andrew Cuomo would rather fight the press than answer to corruption---

I miss Evvie and it's ambiguous sexuality, cute habit of calling everyone "Mister, " and the amusing references to an aunt.   And,  of course,  the Josh-like smorgasbord of informative links.   Nothing wrong with a repurposed sock. 

Blush

I didn't know you cared, Mr. Bart.

I thought it was just dead, after trying over a couple days. The 2008 version had been around for so long without sign of an administrator that I figured that broken was broken. But now it's back with the "newest version," AIM screen names and all! And this time we can update our profiles.

I suppose I can create a sock puppet if you really like them, but it seems like a lot more effort than it's worth.

When you actually read a newspaper report and respond to specific facts (matters of public record accessible in multiple news sources) in it,  I will listen to you and consider your evidence.  That approach, not reporting twitter opinionators, is how a real political discussion happens among the grownups.
