MH17 blown up or finding God over the Ukraine

As if we need reminding this is a horrible consequence of war, any kind of war can result in the death of anyone who gets too close to the battle ground. my question is why was a commercial aircraft over a “no fly zone” at all? Even if it was a thousand feet above the ceiling of that exclusion zone it was obviously not enough to avoid being targeted and shot down. As we are talking about the former Soviet Union here the assumption that the combatants would not have access to  sophisticated anti aircraft ordnance  capable of  downing high flying  aircraft  is obviously  catastrophically wrong.

Its also a horrible coincidence that the aircraft belongs to Malaysian Airlines, the company that brought you that disappearing plane trick not so long ago. Anyone want to predict the airline’s chances of survival now?  You might get better odds on them serving bacon sarnies on future flights.

Then again this might not have been a missile strike at all, it could be the result of the old favorite of a “bomb on the plane” itself and its location of destruction could be nothing more than a coincidence. Time will tell and reveal the truth, but by the time it happens we will have buried the bodies and largely forgotten the whole thing.

Ian Thorpe finally admits he swims for the other team, nobody is surprised, cares or thinks that it matters at all

As one of those who does not care who fucks who as long as the fucking is all mutually consensual and all of the fuckers are adults I can’t help thinking  with the admission for Ian Thorpe that he swims for the other team “why the lies and bullshit Mr Thorpe?

Back in the spotlight: Ian Thorpe.

Back in the spotlight: Ian Thorpe.

After years of dismissing speculation about his sexuality, Ian Thorpe has revealed he is gay.

Thorpe made the admission in a tell-all interview with Sir Michael Parkinson, News Corp reports.

The interview, which will air on Sunday night on Channel Ten, has been described by Sir Michael as one he had wanted to do for a long time.

“Ian Thorpe has always been near the top of my list to interview. The reasons are obvious. Not many athletes can claim to be the best of all time. Ian can.”

Before he retired for the first time at the age of 24, Thorpe broke 22 world records and won five gold and three silver medals and one bronze medal at the Olympic Games.

But despite his success in the pool, Thorpe’s career has been plagued with persistent rumours about his sexuality.

In his 2012 autobiography, This is Me, Thorpe confronted the speculation head-on: ”For the record, I am not gay and all my sexual experiences have been straight. I’m attracted to women, I love children and aspire to have a family one day … I know what it’s like to grow up and be told what your sexuality is, then realising that it’s not the full reality. I was accused of being gay before I knew who I was.”

The way that we put any gormless athlete who can run jump or swim better than other people up on a such a high pedestal is really incredibly tedious. These meat heads are not the sort of inspirations that I think are very good for the young people who are our future. Anyway its obvious to me that the reason that Ian Thorpe consistently lied about which team he swims for was all about the almighty dollar because he thought or was advised that he would be less valuable to sell breakfast cereals as a Gay athlete than he was as a straight one. Now that he has lost much of his previous golden shine coming out provides another chance to get a whole new payday from his shallow celebrity. I would be very surprised if this latest interview to be aired tonight is not going to put money in to Thorpe’s budgie smugglers. Does anyone seriously think that we won’t see a media blitz from this washed up swimmer in the women’s magazines, the Gay media will be delighted to have a new icon to deify and all of this will feed into Thorpe’s budgie smuggler stash.  Does anyone want to bet that it won’t be long before Thorpe becomes the poster boy for all of the elements for the Gay agenda?  Ah the cult of celebrity ain’t it the epitome of the vacuousness of the 24/7 media cycle  that is eternally sucking up any issue or person  who will keep the masses addicted to its electronic heroin.

Janet Albrechtsen and Auntie

Janet Albrechtsen.

Janet Albrechtsen.

The Abbott government has appointed conservative commentator Janet Albrechtsen and former deputy Liberal Party leader Neil Brown to the panel overseeing appointments to the boards of the ABC and SBS.

The four-person nomination panel, which is appointed by the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, presents a shortlist of recommendations to the government when vacant ABC and SBS board positions arise.

Dr Albrechtsen and Mr Brown will serve alongside businessman David Gonski and former diplomat Ric Smith, whose terms expire next year.

Labor introduced a merit-based appointment process in 2011, which was aimed at depoliticising the ABC and SBS boards.

SBS has two vacant board positions – including the position of chairman – and the ABC has one vacant position.

Dr Albrechtsen, a columnist for The Australian and former lawyer, has previously derided the ABC as a “Soviet-style workers collective”.

She was appointed to the ABC board by the Howard government and she served on it from 2005 to 2010.

In November, Dr Albrechtsen called for ABC managing director Mark Scott to resign for airing stories based on documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden about Australian intelligence operations in Indonesia.

Mr Brown, a former Victorian Liberal MP, served as deputy Liberal leader under John Howard in opposition and as the communications minister and minister for business and consumer affairs in the Fraser government.

Call me a politics tragic if  you like but I could not help finding this to be a promise of rancor to come because I can’t help but expect that there will be a whole stampede of our friends form the left who are going to be having kittens about the thought of Janet Albrechtsen having a big say in the selection of boards of both the ABC and SBS. Heaven help us if the result was boards that did not lean so far  to the left…

Ok Comrades its time to admit that something has surprised me in politics, thankfully for my dear readers that does not happen very often. You see I did not expect the Palmer Gore love in that we saw yesterday in the media who were going on as if what was announced would be upsetting the Abbott government. First the positives the hated Carbon tax will be abolished and its repeal bills passed and also a positive is that the “direct action policy appears to be impossible to pass. The renewable energy target thing is a relatively  minor inconvenience     as is the block the government’s plans to scrap the Clean Energy Finance Corporation especially if the cost savings from no direct action policy is taken into account. The final positive is that Palmer has proven, with one fell swoop, that he is about as real and genuine as one of  his robot dinosaurs. Talk about playing both ends of the field! After this we need a brand new superlative for hypocrisy, here is a coal miner getting up  close and personal with a high priest of the Green religion, Ah well they do have utter hypocrisy in common.

What we can be sure of is that the Palmer circus is going to be entertaining us for a while yet with or without imported clowns like Al Gore

Prime those Hellfire missiles

Its an interesting development that the USA have recovered their man from the clutches of the Taliban and I have been of course taking note of the blow-back from some hardline conservatives about the way that these men are very likely to go back into the fight with even more hatred and and religious fanaticism.However it occurred to me that if those scumbags were to take up arms once again then they would be very good candidates for Drone strikes. Thus they can be sent to consult with Allah far sooner than would have been possible through the US military justice system or the civilian courts. Well its one way to remove detainees from Club Gitmo.

Missiles away Comrades

Tony puts the media in its place

Its interesting to watch the vision for this incident and to see a confident Tony Abbott deftly put Nicola Berkovic in her place at the press conference yesterday:

 

After Mr Abbott arrived, the first question of the day was from Nicola Berkovic, a journalist from The Australian newspaper.

‘‘Prime Minister, do you trust this government, the state government, which is proving to be corrupt, to deliver your major infrastructure plans?’’

The question was perhaps poorly worded as no state Liberal has been found corrupt.

But Mr Abbott was not in a forgiving mood as he tried to turn his prime ministerial authority back on Berkovic.

‘‘That, if I may say so, is an entirely unjustified smear,’’ Mr Abbott said.

‘‘Let me not mince my words, madam. An entirely unjustified smear, and frankly I think you should withdraw that. There is no evidence whatsoever for that.’’

He then asked Berkovic, a former press gallery journalist of the year for her coverage of the Rudd government’s home insulation scheme, what her evidence was.

Another journalist tried to restore normal press conference service by asking Mr Abbott if he would remember receiving a bottle of wine from his birth year.

But Mr Abbott would not be deterred. Waving off the interruption, he returned to Berkovic.

‘‘Please, please, I’ve asked what the evidence of that statement was and none has been forthcoming,’’ he said, holding up his hands.

Berkovic replied: ‘‘I think that voters will have questions to ask about a premier who specifically said yesterday that if he was delivered a bottle of that nature he would remember it. Today a thank you note has been uncovered and he has resigned. I think voters would be quite sceptical about the way this has unfolded.’’

Mr Abbott said that was a very different statement from the previous one and called on everybody to lift their game.

Amusingly some minions of the left are suggesting that the put down of a woman journalist was “bullying” its similar to the line run by the Guardian yesterday as I see it we should expect a certain standard from all journalists and I hope that Nicola Berkovic   was just having a momentary lapse in judgement but some how I doubt it Maybe she should have stuck to puff pieces in Cleo about how to make lots of money when you are new to a career..

I’m damning Labor with faint praise

 ''Tony Abbott did not put Labor in opposition, the Australian people put us here, and unless we change, it is where we will stay,'' Mr Shorten planned to say. He conceded that, for too long, Labor had seen its problems as about image, message and its ability to sell its policies. ''It's more serious than this. We need to change ourselves. We need to change our party,'' he wrote. click for source

Well now the mother of all by-elections is all over bar the shouting (and counting, assuming that its not stuffed up again) its good to see the leader of the opposition moving to reform the ALP to better reflect the diminished standing of the union movement in Australian society. The requirement that someone who wants to join the Labor party has to also be a financial member of a union is an anachronism that has surely been putting off a lot of people who might otherwise join the party. Now as much as I dislike the ALP as it is currently constituted and the polices that it pursues I do recognise the need for there to be a viable yin to the LNP’s yang and as the Greens are too loopy to be let anywhere near the levers of government a viable ALP is the best option and for them to be viable they need to be more reflective of the people that they purport to represent.  So after Ray has picked himself up  after discovering me writing something positive about Electricity Bill Shorten I’m sure that we will be in agreement that making  Labor party membership easier and cheaper will be a good for the political landscape of this country.

The other tribe of indigenous Aussie culture.

I am by nature rather eclectic in my viewing habits when it comes to broadcast TV I actually even watch some shows on SBS  and among that channel’s offerings   I have enjoyed several of the productions from Paul Fenech,” Fat Pizza” and “Housos” are both quite clever pieces of over the top satire and once you hey past the rather amateur acting and production values both programs demonstrate a clear affection for the subculture that they satirise . the Advertising for the new program to be screened on Seven Mate  shows some promise of the satire being turned up to eleven.

Tasmania is the bogan capital of Australia and if you’re seeking bogans in the ACT look no further than the nation’s parliament.

These are just some of the findings to come out of a “bogan odyssey” completed by self-proclaimed boganologist Paul Fenech.

If I was thinking about a holiday in Australia and I saw this, I’d probably be scared

With the other two members of his crack team, Shazza (Elle Dawe) and Kev the Kiwi (Kevin Taumata), who will be familiar from the controversial SBS series Housos, Fenech has visited every state for a new 7Mate series called Bogan Hunters.

“There are plenty of places in each state,” he says. “Start in the centre of a city and drive for about 35 minutes minimum into the suburbs and you will find a bogan area.

“Tasmania has the top-shelf, black-label bogans. There’s an element of boganicity there that is worthy of another 15 years of social study.”

And the epicentre of Tasmanian bogan culture is in a suburb of Launceston, according to Fenech.

“It’s a place called Ravenswood, which they told us not to go to because we’d get stabbed,” he says. “But we didn’t get stabbed and it was all nice.”

From the promo it looks as if this program will also be taking a very big bite at the many reality shows that populate the Mate (and other Freeview channels ) schedule. You know,  the shows like “Auction Hunters” “Toy Hunters”  , “Swamp people”, “Pawn Stars”, “American Pickers” ect ect ect. Now I personally know more than a few “Bogans ” many of whom are  great people who would give you the shirt of their backs if you were a mate in trouble, they may not always be the most self aware folk but they are at generally an alright group as long as you understand and respect  their culture and, more importantly, you don’t try to patronise them. Sadly, far too many of the Late sipping brethren have more affection for every other  migrant or religious ethnicity than they do for the other tribe of indigenous Aussie culture.

Cheers Comrades
