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?

Climate Change Keeps Giving (UPDATE!)

If you thought that climate change had realised its full potential – and that TMR’s list from the other day* was exhaustive – you’d be wrong!

We’re dealing with one seriously talented beast here ladies and gentlemen (and others). Here are some more talents to add to TMR’s pile from the other day:

ABC Admits Bias

You’ve probably read this elsewhere already, but it’s simply too good not to share it here for the benefit of those who may not have seen it.

This brilliant piece of work by Beliaik says absolutely everything about the current state of the ABC – which our taxes will fund to the tune of $1.06 billion in 2017-18 (see page 6-31).

I’ve decided to re-post the whole lot to do it justice. If you’re time poor and want the summarised version, feel free to zero in on the bolded parts below or head on down to Andrew Bolt’s blog:

Our Debt Has Chosen to Identify Itself as Good

I wonder what my bank would say if I asked them to have more patience with my ‘good’ debt?

Seriously, what drugs are Scott Morrison and this Liberal government on?

Not a Great Advertisement for Millenials (Update!)

In case you haven’t already seen these hilariously cringeworthy graduate videos doing the rounds, I challenge you to make it all the way through them both.

We begin with the Department of Finance and their ‘game changers’:

Where is She Now?

These days, if you’re a white person and dress yourself up with a ‘blackface’, people are going to look at you like you just came in from Mars.

It wasn’t that long ago that artists like Michael Jackson sang that ‘it don’t matter if you’re black or white’.

I also have it good authority that people hate being lied to and made fools of, although I must admit that I do not have any peer reviewed research to back this up – you’ll just have to believe me.

Who Funded This Disgrace?

Of all the questions in the Queensland University section 18C debacle, the one that hasn’t been properly asked is who funded this lady and allowed her to cause so much carnage?

They Get How Much at the Human Rights Commission?!

By now, everyone is aware of Bill Leak’s infamous cartoon.

TMR has elected to reproduce it here as a firmly extended central digit to the left – which loves taking offense for the sake of taking offense and which specialises in encouraging people who otherwise couldn’t care less to join their crusade (seriously, I take my hat off, they’re really good at doing this).

I’m not going to provide yet another opinion on the merits of the cartoon itself. That’s for you to decide. Long may you continue having the freedom to do just that.

Bias and conflict of interest

The point of this post is to debunk the accusations of bias and conflict of interest that have been raised (I bet you weren’t expecting that) and to expose the egregious waste of public money that is the Human Rights Commission (you were probably expecting that).

Go make yourself a cup of coffee (or prepare a stiff drink) and stick around: you’ll be blown away by some of the numbers.

The Price is Left – Idiot Economics at its Finest

One has to wonder if there are any competent economic journalists left in the media.

This whiffy offering was served up in yesterday’s West Australian by its economics editor, Shane Wright:

Travelling ‘Smart’ in Germany

Here are some of the things the Australian Smartraveller site has to say about travelling to Germany:
