Lessons in Morality From Hollywood

Following the 2018 Golden Globe celebrity virtue-signalling awards, we discovered that:

  • black is now quite literally the new black (I guess it was only a matter of time);
  • #metoo apparently means that, while behaving in a sexually inappropriate manner towards adult celebrity women is now definitely not ok, the issue of behaving in a sexually inappropriate manner towards girls under the age of 14 is still a bit of a grey area:

TMR’s Christmas Message to Millennials

Merry Christmas Millennials!

Because I’m such a nice privileged white male, I’ve decided to give you some free advice. You may detect a common theme.

Apologies

To TMR’s regular readers, the initial version of the post below (Here, Have Some More Idiot Economics) was inadvertently published from an earlier draft and was not the final version that now appears.

Apologies if you were one of the early readers.

Extra brownie points if you were one of the early readers and noticed a couple of the drafting flaws (which have now been forever stricken from the record!).

Here, Have Some More Idiot Economics

This is The West’s useful idiot of an economics editor Shane Wright, wondering the other day where WA’s economic growth was going to come from. If you would like to play along at home, try to strain your brain for the answer – goodness knows Shane tried to have a go:

Remember Crooked Hillary?

Following on from Steve Kates’ post on Catallaxy Files, it’s incredible that Trump barely slurs a few words and the whole media melts down.

Conversely, when Hillary did things like this, we were expected to make nothing of it whatsoever:

 

I posted on Hillary’s obvious health issues during the 2016 US Presidential election campaign. One year on, a couple of the video links have interestingly gone dead.

 

Editorial – We’ve Only Just Begun

Isn’t it funny how the left:

  • said that any public debate on homosexual marriage would turn nasty and harmful towards homosexuals (and their children) – and then it didn’t. Indeed, the opposite occurred… repeatedly;

The Constitution is Just Fine Thank You Very Much

I saw this opinion written by Sanjeev Sabhlok (as a guest poster) over at Catallaxy Files and just about fell out of my chair. It relates to the Federal Parliament’s citizenship crisis and attempts to follow the ‘law is stupid’ line of argument:

Stop worshipping the Constitution. Please start thinking.

Citizenship is meaningless if it does not include the right to represent the community in parliament. Australia citizenship is arguably worthless since our constitution imposes restrictions on citizens who can contest elections.

I. Told. You. So.

Isn’t it funny how those who purport to be the most eminent often can’t see what’s right in front of their noses?

TMR breaks down the good bits of today’s High Court decision in the Citizenship Seven affair. Trust me when I say it’s an absolute treasure trove of entertainment… for everyone except George Brandis and those who were ultimately disqualified from Parliament.

Go and grab yourself a coffee or liquored beverage of your choice (it is Friday afternoon after all) and let’s get busy!

Brandis Has Truly Lost the Plot

In case there wasn’t already enough of a disconnect between the political class and regular people, George Brandis put forward this ludicrous proposition the other day:

Dual citizen politicians who “honestly swear” they didn’t know they held foreign citizenship should not be ruled ineligible to sit in Parliament, Attorney-General George Brandis has told the High Court.

In a submission concerning the fate of MPs currently under a citizenship cloud, Senator Brandis said his construction of the law suggested politicians should be taken at their word [TMR: (!!!)] unless there was evidence to the contrary.

Try to Guess the Penalty…

If I told you that a 51 year old man placed internet advertisements, offering to pay a teenage girl to have sex with him – only to be caught by a police sting and convicted by a court – what would you assume his jail time would be?
