In terms of population growth yep its horrible for quality of life/standard of living. But it will boost property prices and corporate earnings over the long-term so make sure you get a slice of the action.

RE: The Australian politics thread
AB's story reminds of this joke I've heard round the web:
Quote:Her Diary:

Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it.

Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.

On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.'

When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed.

About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep - I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

His Diary:

Motorcycle won’t start…can't figure out why.

''Casual sex is great and all, but I really miss having a girlfriend.

I like having somebody that cares about me that I can cheat on.''

RE: The Australian politics thread
It seems one of the results of Karl Stefanovic's divorce is that he's getting the Red Pill as a suppository.

http://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/...45e24e8491

Quote:TODAY host Karl Stefanovic has been slammed as “sexist” by angry viewers after suggesting Australian Ninja Warrior use a different course for men and women.

His controversial comments come off the back of Andrea Hah’s failure to quality for the grand final despite making Ninja history as the first woman in Australia to make it up the Warped Wall.

It took six years for a woman in the US to achieve the same feat.


Disgruntled viewers have challenged Stefanovic to take on the course himself to see how he would fare if pitted against Hah.

I'll admit to having watched this televised crossfit bullshit for the chance to drop light shitlording along the lines of "Nup. No way a woman's going to make it" to the women around me. Given only six men worldwide have ever finished the Grand Final of this competition, I was sure this was going to be embarrassing for the women, and I wasn't disappointed.

I watched the show where Hah went through to the semifinals. For context, she, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend's brother all entered together. They're all pro/am rock climbers, who by dint of their training appear to have certain inherent advantages: rangy, higher grip strength, great arm conditioning, better leg strength, good core strength. Her boyfriend is (according to the show) meant to be one of Australia's best male rock climbers. She was touted on the show to be popularly recognised as Australia's best female rock climber.

Watching the show, even allowing for generous edits and similar bullshit, you could see the qualitative differences immediately between Hah and her boyfriend. He more or less romped through it. She had a better run than a lot of beefcakes on the show because she's a shortarse, but you could see she was gassed at the end and she had a lot harder time at it than a great deal of the men.

The reason anyone is disqualified from Ninja Warrior is if they don't fall within the top 13 results, combining both those who finished the course and those who got furthest. That is, Hah was blown out by almost two dozen men, all of whom were faster or had more success with the course than she did and not many of whom were even in the top of their chosen, physical fields (firefighters, a fucking chippie, and a male robotics university grad got through - the last providing the best time for the entire course!).

And she's the absolute best that female physicality can throw at the course. She's lighter than most men and she had literally the best training for the test that can probably be given.

Quote:Although Hah admitted her failure to make the grand final was “disappointing”, she believes the course isn’t gender discriminatory.

“The course is equal for men and women,” she told News Corporation Australia.
“It’s about bodyweight so you’re actually at an advantage if you’re lighter. A female would have an advantage if anything.

Lol, if that were true Hah would have qualified -- or any of the bevy of female "bodybuilders", gymnasts, or personal trainers who tried out for the course. Out of half the entire physically fit female population, only Hah even got into the semifinals, and she literally had to be the top of her game to even get that far. Hah might know how to climb rocks, but she doesn't understand basic biology. Plenty of guys heavier than her qualified, and a hell of a lot faster. Muscle mass counts, as does the pain threshold, as does creatine.

As for the morons out there saying "Put Hah up against Stefanovic": that precisely illustrates his point. In order for Hah to overcome a man, she literally has to compete against one with zero prior training and who hasn't climbed anything but the corporate ladder in the past six years. That's sort of why Stefanovic suggested a different course for men and women. I'd put good money that, even allowing for Stefanovic's age, if you put him through a solid regime of equivalent training to Hah over a fraction of the time she took, he'd either match her or outrun her.

Ahhh, good old female delusions of physical superiority. From the Williams sisters being smashed by a ranked-151 male player who had a couple of beers before playing, to Rhonda Rousey believing she can take on Floyd Mayweather, to entire national women's soccer teams being BTFO by teams of under-17 boys, it never gets old.

Remissas, discite, vivet.

Can't say I saw much of the American Ninja Warrior show, yet I imagine it was a similar situation to this Aus. Ninja Warrior show.

Yet it is amusing to see & hear the production / announcing staff involved do everything they can to mask the obvious.
Men are more physically fit / stronger than women, therefore the equality notion goes out the window.

Mental gymnastics to the nth degree on their part, pun intended.

As you say, even if an individual female competitor is somewhat capable, they are never as agile, athletic nor accomplished at finishing the course in comparison to the top males.

When Olympic level female gymnasts are struggling while random Joe blow's can breaze through the course...
It will be interesting to see if the ratings for this show hold up.
Once the kids & the chicks begrudgingly resent the show cause it's "not fair".
They may well tune out on mass.

You fucking misogynists.

Don't you understand? It's only the crushing psychological weight of the combined minds of every misogynist in the world like you two that causes women to routinely underperform against men!

When you fucking dinosaurs have been relegated to extinction and there's no sexist force of mass consciousness to hold women back then they will win just as often as men, IF NOT MORE, BECAUSE THEY ARE WIMMINS!

I saw an episode. They gave performance of the night to a woman who made it half way through the course, while 18 men had already completed the entire course. The ratings will probably be okay though. Most people watching free to air TV nowadays are working class and still haven't fully got into the whole 'feminism' thing.

The ones that would take offence are watching Netflix, swiping Tinder, posting their decade old bikini photos on Facebook while eating their fifth bag of MnM's... But then again. I could just be exaggerating.

RE: The Australian politics thread
I'm going to bump this thread a few times over the next week.

The reason being that I have some limited degree of evidence that the public sector CEOs are somewhat secretly ramping up protections for future terrorist attacks (at what will be a "spare no cost" exercise).

Furthermore in at least the specific case I know of the preparations are what I've decided to term SOS-AFEE (save our-selves and fuck everyone else).

I can't go into details immediately without breaking a promise but I can at least warn the Australian membership that the public sector is starting to take the threat of an "active shooter" situation extremely seriously, but don't expect their preparations to involve your personal safety. You will be on your own.

Moreover I'll be looking for any members that work in or around the public sector to privately corroborate what I've caught wind of.

I have a close connection within the immigration department and they have recently had half the department terminated.

With an impending Labor Government, there is high tension over the survival of off shore detention centres. As we're all probably well aware, once foreign criminals reach mainland Australia they are inevitably let free into society due to laws which restrict their deportation back to a war torn nation.

As such, the mainstream public aren't aware of the fact that huge numbers of foreign criminals are walking free in the country... More so, they aren't aware of the fact that the AFP are 'NOT' funded to monitor them.

With regards to the department, they are now starting to understand the effects of their 'bleeding heart' decisions in the past, but also that they are too late to change anything, which is causing absolute chaos.

Terror raids in Sydney: Police storm homes in Lakemba, Wiley Park, Punchbowl and Surry Hills

Quote:HEAVILY armed police have raided properties in four Sydney suburbs and arrested four men over an alleged terror plot that reportedly involved blowing up an aircraft.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the counter-terrorism raids on Saturday afternoon were designed to stop “terrorist attacks in Australia”. Australian Federal Police, NSW Police and the domestic spy agency ASIO jointly carried out the operation on Saturday afternoon in Surry Hills, Lakemba, Wiley Park and Punchbowl.
“Four men have been taken into custody and are assisting police with their inquiries,” the AFP and NSW Police said in a joint statement following the raids.
Fairfax Media, News Corp and the ABC said the terror raids were in relation to a bomb plot involving aircraft.

Halal Chief: ‘Australian Women Need Muslims to Fertilize Them’

Quote:White Australians will be extinct within 40 years because Australian men are too busy smoking, drinking beer and taking drugs to procreate, a Muslim businessman has warned.

Halal certification chief Mohamed Elmouelhy told his Facebook followers the solution to this perceived demographic crisis for Australian women is for Muslim men to “fertilise them” and “keep them surrounded by Muslim babies” as part of what he foresees as the gradual Islamisation of Australia.

His observation was in response to a study by researchers from the Hebrew University, published in the journal Human Reproduction Update, which found declining fertility rates among men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

[Image: halal.jpg]

“Your men are a dying breed, Australian women need us to fertilise them and keep them surrounded by Muslim babies while beer swilling, cigarette smoking, drug injecting can only dream of what Muslim men are capable of,” he said.

“Muslims have a duty to make your women happy.”

In an email to news.com.au, Mr. Elmouelhy said the now-deleted post was intended to “stir the bigots” who had allegedly attacked his Facebook page “using all manner of expletives and attacks possible including promises of physical attacks etc.”

“Last night Facelessbook deleted the post, yet venomous messages devoid of any humour addressed to me about Islam remain published,” he wrote. “You can see other messages from the bigots on other posts I have.”

In a longer version of the first Facebook post, Mr. Elmouelhy warmed to his theme that the future of Australia was tied to Islam.

“It will [sic] mandatory for all women to wear hijab or burka if they prefer, bikinis will be displayed in Museums but not on nubile bodies anymore,” he wrote.

“When that happens everything in Australia will be Halal certified. Bigots and pigs will be declared Haram and must not be approached or touched, they can live together in reserves. There will be a Halal butcher on every corner, all other butchers will be offered to convert to Halal or given [sic] a passage back to where their ancestors came from.”

The 2016 Census revealed that Muslims made up 2.6 per cent of the Australian population, up from 2.2 per cent in 2011.

Totally unrelated to that: you guys have wood chippers there, right? Just curious.

15 Terror plots were in danger of being carried out in the last three years in Australia:

15 Terror plots, 3 years

AUSTRALIA would have experienced 15 terror attacks including public beheadings on home soil over the past three years if most plots in their advanced stages hadn’t been foiled, according to police.

The terror attacks police were unable to prevent include the Lindt Cafe siege in Sydney in which manager Tori Johnson and mother-of-three Katrina Dawson lost their lives; the killing of police accountant Curtis Cheng by 15-year-old schoolboy Farhad Khalil Mohammed Jabar in Parramatta and the non-fatal stabbing of Wayne Greenhalgh in Minto last year. In Victoria, Numan Haider, 18, attacked two police officers with a knife outside the Endeavour Hills police station before being shot dead in September 2014.

http://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-upd...f24cd0dc97

Quote:Security fears at Australian airports lead to delays

(Blahblahblah)
...

Travellers have been warned to arrive two hours before their domestic flight because of “additional scrutiny”. Those flying internationally will need to arrive three hours before their flight is scheduled, with security experts expecting the arrangements will be in place for the foreseeable future.

Travellers are also being urged to limit the amount of baggage they take on flights to help speed up the screening process.
...

We are reaching levels of enrichment previously thought impossible.

1.5 hours extra screening time on average multiplied by X many passengers per day. Anyone care to guess the sheer total hours of life lost per day per airport for the benefits of said enrichment?

On a statistical basis it's the same as the terrorists killing one person a day without having to lift a finger.

p.s. Quick math: 33million use the Tullamarine airport yearly.
One fifth fly internationally making it a 26.4/6.6 mil split.
26.4mil flights x 2 hours per flight (little to no security before "enrichment") = 52.8 mil hours
6.6mil flights (int) x 3 hours per flight = 19.8 mil hours.

Total (19.8+52.8) = 72.6 mil hours.

Let's take the average age of a victim of terrorism to be 30y/o. Future trends indicate the average life expectancy to sit around 80y/o. That's 50 years robbed per victim.

50 years = 438,000 hours.

72.6mil/438khours = 165 "deaths" (rounded down).

That's the time-lost equivalent of taking 165 random Australians per year and shooting them in the back of the head.

And that's just one airport, factoring only security waiting times and not even considering the massive productivity losses involved.

These enrichers are killing us without even having to try.

Great to see Andrew bolt TEAR APART the whole media blitz against men that the cuntish "Feminazi Rights Commissioner" tried to stir up.

Amazing the media gave some space to a few sensible commentators who ripped it to shreds, now all went quiet...

Its promising to see that the leftist propaganda and fake news is starting to get routinely challenged, and if they don't disable the comment section, they get roasted and it makes for hilarious reading sometimes.

There may be hope....

“WE should all be shocked,” groaned Australian National University boss Brian Schmidt, who reporters said was “emotional” and “visibly upset”.

Schmidt was tearing up over a Human Rights Commission report, released on Tuesday, which claimed 51 per cent of Australian university students were sexually harassed last year.

And, yes, we should be shocked and visibly upset — shocked and upset that the commission perpetrated such a hoax. We should be shocked and upset that not one university boss had the brains or guts to call out this fraud of a study.

We should also be furious that Education Minister Simon Birmingham treated these joke findings as serious, demanding universities take action when he should instead demand the HRC apologise for smearing and damaging the universities that earn us $20 billion a year from foreign students.

Ask yourself: is it remotely likely that 51 per cent of all university students, male and female, were sexually harassed last year?

Is it likely that 6.9 per cent of our university students were sexually assaulted over the past two years — nearly 30 times the reported rate of violent South Africa?

UNIS FAIL ON HANDLING OF SEX ASSAULTS

HALF OF ALL UNI STUDENTS ‘HARASSED’

There’s only one real scandal exposed by this study — that our universities must lack academics with the most basic research skills to spot how the taxpayer-funded HRC cooked the books. Yes, the HRC has once more invented a scandal that’s been lapped up by an unquestioning media, producing headlines such as, “Alarming rate of university sexual assaults revealed”.

Here’s how it did it. First the HRC, universities and activists spent more than a year on an emotional publicity campaign to hype the alleged threat of sexual assault on campus. Then, having primed students for outrage, our 39 universities asked them to fill in an online survey to report how often they’d allegedly been harassed or assaulted.

I say “allegedly” because none of the claims was tested.

But here is the real problem with this survey: fewer than 10 per cent of students responded. As the HRC admits: “The survey data has been derived from a sample of the target population who were motivated to respond and made an autonomous decision to do so. It may not necessarily be representative of the entire student population.”

They’re not kidding.
Only one in four of the alleged sexual assaults actually occurred on campus.

Only the most motivated students responded, which presumably includes activist students, ideologues and identity warriors, as well as women and men who have indeed been harassed or abused. But 90 per cent of students couldn’t be bothered responding, perhaps because most didn’t think there was a problem that needed fixing.

That means the results could be exaggerated as much as tenfold.

Nor does the fraud stop there. The researchers also defined sexual harassment so broadly that the most trivial or accidental behaviour was included. Even “inappropriate staring or leering” was counted as harassment and, bingo, it worked. Mere stares or leers generated a third of all the complaints.

What exactly is “inappropriate staring”, anyway? Does it include gawking at an angry female student with a purple mohawk and a “F--- Abbott” T-shirt? Or checking out a male with a peroxide do and bared abs? Almost 20 per cent of the complaints were about “sexually suggestive jokes” and another 14 per cent about “intrusive questions” about the student’s private life. Even “inappropriate displays of the body” qualified as harassment.

So this is the crisis? Seriously?

WOMEN FACE RAMPANT SEXUAL VIOLENCE

The survey’s definition of sexual assaults is also broad and includes being “tricked into sexual acts against their will or without their consent, including when they have withdrawn their consent”.

No wonder that 40 per cent of students who said they’d been sexually assaulted also said they thought it wasn’t serious enough to tell the university, and another 40 per cent said they hadn’t needed help.

And still that’s not the full con.

Only one in four of the alleged sexual assaults — 1.6 per cent of students over two years — actually occurred on campus or going to and from university. Doesn’t that suggest that students are actually safer at university than anywhere else?

And why are assaults on students travelling to and from campus blamed on universities? Why not blame the public transport system?

Why? Because this is one more way the HRC could inflate the statistics to paint universities as cesspits of rape and sexual predators.

This survey is a disgrace. The failure of universities to call it out shows that reason no longer rules and the victim culture is king.

Scrap the Human Rights Commission. And buy some backbones for our university bosses.
