    I’m going to address something that I haven’t heard anyone else address.
    During the last two years, especially in 2021, I wrote social media post after social media post on the Covid. Trying to find out the risks, trying to start a debate or trying to find out what was happening with others of you.
    Here is what hasn’t been said: I was f…ing terrified every time I posted something.
    We had police helicopters doing laps of our suburbs. We had people getting beat up by the coppers, curfews, cobbers and absolute bullsh*t media hysteria, we had an atmosphere of fear and self censorship, and you better believe I succumbed to it and self censored and felt a jolt of fear every time I hit “post”.
    That is a sh*t way to live.
    And now?
    I fear, and fear greatly, that those who succumbed and took the stab just want to move on and crave nothing more than to forget and get back to normal.
    Like immediately after a war, no one wants to dissect the causes. That takes until decades later.

    ‘Here was the Prime Minister telling people, Kenny highlighted, with a straight face – Albo was not doing stand-up – that he intended to change the climate to a more benign setting so they would no longer be troubled by natural disasters.

    Personally I thought the PM was rather restrained. I was expecting him to channel former US president Barack Obama and his “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”. Further, Obama made that modest claim when he’d only just won the Democratic nomination to run for president; well before he could, well, actually do anything.

    And indeed, with our Albo, he could have been even more modest; claiming only that ‘this’ – his election – was the moment when the rise of our rivers began to slow and our continent began to heal. No more flooding rains, just endless drought.’

    ‘Well, now we’ve got, according to Gottliebsen, just about the most ludicrous proposal ever conceived in Australia – “that gas-rich Victoria import high-cost liquefied natural gas from Queensland”. Making it even more ludicrous, to Gottliebsen, is that the Victorian gas could be got without fracking as opposed to the Queensland gas.

    To Victoria’s Dark Green Labor government – my description, not his – fracked gas is just so much more evil than drilled gas; or in Gottliebsen’s case, gas that has to be separated from water.

    Something that, according to Gottliebsen, would be a ‘three-fer’ – Victorians would get the gas they need for heating etc and the generation back-up for wind and solar that could accelerate the closure of coal-fired power stations and the water released would droughtproof Gippsland.’

    ‘Peak stupid, Chris? Nah, we’re just getting more and more of it, spreading out around the world like Covid on airliners out of Wuhan.

    Where does all that fracked Queensland gas go? Almost all of it goes overseas, with more than two-thirds going to just one country alone: China.

    They can use it, and some, but we can’t. Their CO2 emissions are politically invisible, ours only literally so. Unlike the WA government of years ago, the Queensland government never insisted on ‘reserving’ some of it for Queenslanders, let alone the rest of Australia.

    Furthermore, we are desperate for China to start buying our coal again, to use in their coal power stations as we close all ours down.

    Peak stupid? In May the World Economic Forum reported that “coal-powered electricity generation rose by 9 per cent in 2021 to 10,042 Terawatt-hours (TWh), marking the biggest percentage rise since 1985”.

    And no, the WEF is no shill for the coal industry. It’s the exact opposite; it’s the Darkest shade of anti-fossil fuel Green, pushing climate change like there will be no tomorrow.

    Let me put that increase in context. Global coal-generated electricity increased by 908TWh in 2021. Our total – total – electricity generation was around 265TWh in 2021.

    So the world increased its coal-fired generation, in one year, by more than three times our total electricity.

    And where is much of that coal being burnt for power? According to WEF, over 50 per cent was in, well, China alone, followed by over 10 per cent in India.

    Let’s round off with Biden desperately pleading with the Saudis to pump a lot more oil to offset the Russians – while doing everything he can to close down oil production in the US.

    Peak Stupid? Nah, What about Ever-Peakier Stupid?’

    Manly Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler apologises
    for ‘poor’ execution and management of pride jersey

    Manly Sea Eagles has confirmed all seven stars who had ruled themselves out of selection for this week’s match over the pride jersey will not play.

    Jason Saab, Josh Aloiai, Christian Tuipulotu, Josh Schuster, Haumole Olakau’atu, Tolutau Koula and Toafofoa Sipley are believed to be the athletes who will not line up against the Sydney Roosters in a crucial match ahead of the finals.

    The news, this morning, had something about the number changing from 7 to 4. Good to know that the 7 are holding firm and haven’t rolled over. They are stars.

    What is Hasler apologising for? Poor execution and management of personal ideologies into an area that is meant to be just entertainment for those who love sport?

    “The jersey intent was to support the advocacy and human rights pertaining to gender, race culture, ability and LGBTQ rights,” Hasler said.

    What about human rights and inclusivity pertaining to religion or culture or any other reason?

    Oshkosh 2022:

    From July 24 through 31, 2022, FAA air traffic controllers will help more than 17,000 planes safely fly in and out of Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport for the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture aviation experience. The fly-in will attract more than 600,000 pilots and aircraft enthusiasts to the northern Wisconsin town. Just listen to the bustling radio communications as FAA controllers talk with pilots and each other to safely move huge numbers of airplanes through the airspace around Oshkosh. The familiar call from controllers to pilots: “Rock your wings” is an Oshkosh staple, allowing controllers to positively identify aircraft they are communicating with.

    So how does Oshkosh tower stack up against the big airports during EAA AirVenture? Oshkosh truly was the busiest control tower in the world over three days last year and was the second busiest airport during the entire AirVenture, according to statistics from the FAA.

    Andrew Rule and Mark Buttler reporting on an extraordinary episode of f..kwittery:

    ‘Wronged tradie Phoenix Cooper is still looking for answers about why he was branded a rapist in a failed prosecution that cost him $200,000 in legal costs earlier this year.

    The young glazing contractor holds no personal grudge against his accuser (or even the busybody friends who pressured her into laying charges) but wants to find out why a case with such obviously flimsy evidence ever got to trial.

    He was last week interviewed by a Victoria Police detective about his grievances and is, so far, satisfied that police might be taking his plight seriously. But he is not nearly so satisfied with the Office of Public Prosecutions which, strangely, let the case proceed.

    Cooper’s main concern is that the authorities insisted on prosecuting him even after the results of crucial toxicology tests destroyed the original accusations against him.

    The tests proved that the allegation he drugged the woman was completely bogus.

    But certain police, with the OPP’s blessing, insisted on pushing on regardless by mounting a spurious consent case against him over what was (a jury found) clearly consensual sex. Of the sort that happens when young female lawyers pick up young male tradies after a big Friday night at a trendy bar.

    Cooper’s view, which his lawyers studiously do not contradict, is that a particular police officer was overzealous and unprofessional in pushing the view that anyone accused of a sex offence must be automatically guilty on grounds that all claimed sex offence victims must be believed, regardless of evidence.

    That one headstrong police officer could ignore the “innocent until proven guilty” doctrine is one thing. But what the Cooper family cannot understand is why the OPP’s fine legal minds condoned such a dangerously absurd prejudice.

    When Cooper wrote to the OPP to ask why, he said this week, the response “was completely inadequate.”

    In his written complaint, he asked why a certain solicitor (no longer working at the OPP) failed to disclose all prosecution material to the defence. In fact, this particular lawyer provided only “redacted” voice memos recorded at the time of the incident, not the full memos.

    The concern is whether “redacted” means “doctored” to suit the prosecution and hamper his defence.

    Cooper asks if the solicitor involved was, in fact, sacked because of this withholding of information.

    The lofty reply was that the inexperienced solicitor in question moved on because of “personal” issues, not because of any mistakes she made.

    In other words: nothing to see here, we know best and we will stonewall you until your nose bleeds even though one of our lawyers got it wrong.

    Testing the truth of the OPP’s answers will be interesting if this debacle gets before an independent inquiry.

    Until that happens, the tradie with the $200,000 millstone is forced to make his case in the media.’

    I was called for jury duty some years ago, alleged sexual assault, several years previously. Actual evidence was that man picked 10yo girl out of swimming pool. After sexual assault education session at school girl “says “that happened to me”, off to police. Statement from “victim” was he did not touch her anywhere near her naughty parts and the incident was over in several seconds. Jury in and out as legals argued. Jury room discussions ranged from “disgusting pig, he is” to ” where is the actual assault?”. Quite alarming really. Case thrown out by judge.

    Not quite the same same, but similar. There is a curious process on the books down here in Incestmania where if you want the prosecution file you pay something like $56 for the privilege.

    So discovery is either held to ransom or delayed until one goes back to court, where one tells the overlearned sh*thead in black up the front that you have NFI what the complaint is about because for fifty bucks everyone can FOAD.

    So it gets adjourned, you get the file for free and the prosecution can then try on some other tactic.

    Poor girl.

    Liz Cambage’s career has taken another wild twist, with the controversial Australian basketball star’s contract terminated by WNBA powerhouse the Los Angeles Sparks.

    Poor girl my foot, she brought it all on herself, too precious by half. Of course, you still can feel sorry for her.

    Putin’s new gas squeeze condemns Europe to recession and a hard winter of rationing

    I believe all Putin asked was for the Europeans to pay in roubles following economic restrictions imposed upon Russia.

    You don’t have to agree with everything Pauline Hanson says to realise she has a lot of gumption and has been out there listening to people.

    If Scott Morrison had a bit of that spark he would probably still be PM.

    Putin’s new gas squeeze condemns Europe to recession and a hard winter of rationing

    Germany will be the first European power to walk away from the Russian sanctions. It was the Germans who pressured Canada to lift its sanctions against Gazprom so that Siemens in Canada could return the Nord Stream 1 turbine to Russia, and it was the Germans who pressured Lithuania to allow the Russians to resume normal rail and road transport to Kaliningrad.

    Unfortunately for the Germans, just when they were thinking that Russian gas would start flowing again at a satisfactory rate, Russia has said that another turbine needs maintenance so the gas flow will drop even further. Those poor buggers will have to put up with cold showers this coming northern winter.

    Germany will be the first European power to normalise relations with Russia, they need their gas.

    Definition of a recession on Investopedia, 2016:

    What is a ‘Recession’
    A recession is a significant decline in activity across the economy, lasting longer than a few months. It is visible in industrial production, employment, real income and wholesale-retail trade. The technical indicator of a recession is two consecutive quarters of negative economic growth as measured by a country’s gross domestic product (GDP); although the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) does not necessarily need to see this occur to call a recession.

    What Is a Recession?
    A recession is a significant, widespread, and prolonged downturn in economic activity. Because recessions often last six months or more, one popular rule of thumb is that two consecutive quarters of decline in a country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) constitute a recession.

    Economists including those at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), which dates U.S. business cycles, define a recession as an economic contraction starting at the peak of the expansion that preceded it and ending at the low point of the ensuing downturn.
