Gotten a bunch of quality e-mail recently. Apologies to those who are still waiting for a response. I'm off to Sydney for the weekend, so when I get back I shall come up with clever and witty replies. Or something.
Has anyone else had problems accessing Samizdata in the last few days?
Mark Harrison suggests the Governor General might dig himself out of trouble if he emulates the methodology of a certain well-known global political figure.
you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something,
wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
may be closing this site soon.
Here's a list of stuff I want
We all know the enlightened, 'government funded' health care systems in places like Australia and Canada are vastly superior to what the evil, cold-blooded, greedy americans have....right?
Superb post by The Bunyip, shredding Gary Sauer-Thompson's moaning about having to pay for a broadband internet connection.
this weekend to visit the Sydney
Motorcycle Show. Any Sydney bloggers or non-bloggers are invited to
sink a beer or two with me while I'm there. Drop me a line: tex
Mean Mr. Mustard aint impressed by Al Qaeda's comeback.
some changes to the links on both sides of this page, and added a new
Our politically-correct luddite fascist friends at the Green Left Weekly have published this sickening apology of Fidel Castro's brutal crackdown on dissidents. Oh, and there's this stirring defence of Castro's lovely worker's paradise, which is apparently being betrayed by those horrible brainwashed bastards who flee to the USA.
Matthew Engel - The Guardian's man in the USA - continues his endless shrill whinging about how much America sucks. Can someone tell me the point of employing this simpering, miserable pansy merely so that he can complain week-in, week-out about how much he hates the place? Americans are stupid, Americans are psychos, American TV sucks, American weather sucks, American movies suck, American cities are awful, Americans only own guns because they have penis envy, Americans are polluters and wasters, Americans are religious fanatics, Americans want to conquer and destroy the planet, blah blah blah blah blah blah....................and on and on it bloody goes.
This guy's raging eurosnob complex has him this week being appalled by the lack of good tea in the USA. Do the horrors of American culture know no depths?
I'd love to see this wimp debate Charles Krauthammer on TV sometime.
Hey, all you United Nations lovers, why isn't your mighty, moral institution doing something about this??
What's that? You can't do anything because you're a bunch of corrupt, simpering, impotent idiots who have to beg the Americans for help?
I guess you'll need an actual military and the willingness to use it...just like Americans or something.
The UN will act quickly...they'll fearlessly announce a four-pronged strategy....
the Americans were in a similar situation a decade ago: Somalia. They
landed in the midst of a UN fiasco, tried to feed the hungry, then spent
months getting shot at while piously correct people the world over called
them imperialists and murderers. Something tells me they'll be sitting
this one out.
Court proceedings began today in the trial of three Assholes For Allah, who murdered 202 people (including 88 Australians) at the Sari Club bombing in Bali. Sadly, it appears the gentlemen concerned haven't been paying attention to the poltically correct script:
Hey, wasn't the bombing the result of Little Johnny Howard sucking up to the Evil Americans? Isn't all terrorism a cry for help from the poor? You mean it might have something to do with neanderthal, racist Islamofascist rage against non-Muslims?
Oh dear, and I thought only white people could be Nazis.
C'mon lads, just cut
down on the "kill whitey" chatter (it's making your sycophants
over here kinda uncomfortable), and start talking about poverty, Dubya
and Palestine. Do that, and you'll have Peter
Fitzsimons begging your forgivness before you know it.
OK, this is disturbing.
There's more, and
it gets worse.
The United States of Australia
National Party official Bryan Pape has come up with this monumentally stupid idea.
Just what we need, triple the amount of politicians and their taxpayer-funded golden retirement funds and porkbarrel spending projects.
Blogging been light in last few days thanks to work commitments, socialising and an overnight motorbike ride to Khancoban. The ride was great, despite the joys of dodging wildlife on the road (2 kangaroos, 2 cows and 2 emus), and a huge unexpected ice patch on the road near Thredbo. All part of the joys of near-winter Alpine motorcycling.
Proper blogging should recommence tomorrow.
My favourite local raving nuthatch - Richard Neville - has delivered another sprawling, fascinating, bizarre and incoherent I-hate-Americans-and-life-itself essays: Smile, You're on Combat Camera.
Get a load of his crystal-clear opening paragraph:
But we do get the impression that even nut-job Richard admits the toppling of Saddam was a good thing, albeit the admission comes through gritted teeth:
What, ya think?
