    What is Albo’s doxy measuring? Is it any way connected with what he is doing to the Magnum?

    This photo calls out for a viciously amusing caption. I’m not clever enough for one that is not obscene.

  2. Foxbody says:

    Magnum Opus, eh?
    That would be what the Companion in the blue and white is describing?

    Bread and circused for the masses, and Magnums and tennis for the elites.
    Which would be nice if there were any bread and circuses. Lots of clown shows and white elephants though, there’s that.

    Unlikely, that would fit more closely in this category

  5. Foxbody says:

    Point taken, Buccaneer.
    Maybe the blue and white Companionette’s gesture is describing the pre election promise – her expression indicates the post election reality.

  6. Buccaneer says:

    Foxy, that definitely could be it, although maybe she’s relaying the workload from the conclusion of that article, point three in particular.


    If you choose to carry a pocket pistol, I won’t hate it. There are some situations where it’s impossible to carry anything larger. If you choose to pack a pocket pistol, you need to keep three things in mind.
    Be ammo selective
    Hollow points tend to fail in these guns
    You’re gonna need to train…a lot with your pocket pistol.
    If you can remember those three things, you’ll be golden.

    sorry gas prices going up courtesy of Cl’s favourite war criminal. Alas if only tony Abbott has not gotten rid of the p[rice on carbon we would not be worried about rising gas prices but I am sure deplorables will pay cheerfully.

    the RBA raising rates is nothing to do with the government but the RBA. The current government has done enough on fiscal policy both reducing the structural deficit ( niot too much as they would guarantee a recession and letting automatic stabilizers do their job.

    Thus more own goals from CL

  8. Buccaneer says:

    Oh look at that, all the countries with the highest natural gas prices also have a carbon tax or some other defact tax on energy.

    You are soo full of shyte.

  9. Not Trampis says:

    so good to see stupidity shown.

    does a carbon tax or ETS have a direct affect on gas prices.
    But if you have a price on carbon for over 10 years then yes it would lead to more and more renewables and much less reliance on highly priced and unreliable fossil fuels.

    That Putin is a powerful bloke. The gas prices went up even before the war started. He must have a magic wand.

    Still with the obsession with a tax on carbon (dioxide – unless it was also to be applied to diamonds and pencils). A tax which would discourage the use of gas but not increase its price. More black magic!

    Our resident nitwit still thinks that generators that work only when the sun shines and the wind blows ( at the correct speed) can produce reliable, continuous, electricity. He probably also thinks that spending between $80 and $500 billion on new transmission lines to remote generation sites will not have any impact on power bills.

    I wonder has he ever heard of transmission losses? Probably not, he failed pre-school, after all.

  11. Buccaneer says:

    And yet the empirical evidence is in, countries that price carbon in your twisted insane bullshit speak, have higher energy prices universally.

    No surprises that the Netherlands is the worst.

    It is also no surprise to me that people captured by left speak like you Trampis, cannot see the damage their policies create. The evidence writ large is the insane caps your historically illiterate leadership are foisting on the poor publics of several countries. This and the threat of super profits taxes, banning whole industries, arbitrary regulations. With no realisation that all these actions increase the risks that the companies that are energy generators, including renewable ones, must make to secure capital and make a return.

    An economically literate person would know that markets measure risk vs reward. Increasing the risk these people have to deliver their product means they need a bigger reward in a shorter period to cover their costs.

    BTW, I’m not writing this for you, you have demonstrated you are incurious to fact, reason or other view points. Don’t bother responding, we know you will double down on the same bullshit with no evidence to back it up.

  12. Not Trampis says:

    two primary school drop outs. wow.

    Hm a price on carbon increases the price of fossil fuels that have a lot of carbon in them like maybe coal. Gas not as affected as much.
    someone doesn’t the last blackouts we had , in Melbourne, was caused by not one not two but three uni0is of a coal fired power station not working. talk about intermittent power.
    Remote areas. I don’t think so so your calculations are well silly.
    the Netherlands have high energy prices because of renewables??
    europes main problem is the price of gas and putting all the eggs in the gas basket.

    This government has never talked about a super profits tax and mores the pity. Who is going to ban whole industries?
    Arbitrary regulations when the gas and coal companies want all Australian consumers to pay the world price.

    what risk are you talking about. they are raking in super normal profits from their exports. Very little risk and much reward.
    Thank you both for showing your ignorance and stupidity.

    Tramp piss is your typical socialist.
    Socialism destroys, and then they point to the destruction and blame their political opposition.

    Capitalism is great.
    We haven’t had it for decades, in our socialist controlled shit hole.
    And now as the system collapses under the weight of excessive government and regulation and taxes…(big government socialism) they blame capitalism.

    A tired and worn out tactic they’ve been using for a good hundred years or so.

  14. Buccaneer says:

    Another totally incoherent response that recycles all your tired bullshit while rebutting not a single point raised.

    Hm a price on carbon increases the price of fossil fuels that have a lot of carbon in them like maybe coal. Gas not as affected as much.

    Because you are a total imbecile, natural gas is a hydrocarbon too dipstick.

    Yes Netherlands has high energy prices because of its emissions trading scheme and also the ridiculous sovereign risk of a government that sways with intentional imbeciles like you.

    The Dutch Government’s ban on coal power generation follows on its efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions by 49% by the end of 2030 as compared to 1990 levels.

    The country is also planning to stop the domestic production of gas by 2030 which is likely to pose developmental challenges for the Dutch government. As of 2020, 64.2% of the power generated in the Netherlands came from gas-fired thermal power

    ” Gas not as affected as much.”

    Earlier you said not affected at all. Stupid?

    You are clearly too stupid to recall that the reference to remote area generators needing long transmission lines related to your inane claim that “the wind is always blowing somewhere”. To collect that wind, generators are needed in remote areas. These need new transmission lines to connect to their customers.

    I didn’t do any calculations, just referred to the problem of transmission losses, which you clearly know nothing about.

    Thank you again for the opportunity to highlight your utter ignorance of anything more complex than balancing the cash drawer at the end of the working day.

    The Mindless Non Mentis failed pre-school. His greatest achievement there was to learn most of the alphabet. Unfortunately, he never learned about capital letters or punctuation. He needs to be treated with the contempt he earns.

  17. Buccaneer says:

    He may have learned most of the alphabet, he clearly didn’t learn how to use the letters

  18. Foxbody says:

    Re Buccaneers point about pocket pistols at 5.26, noted the hollow point reference.
    Quite appropriate for our Leader – it is the lesser amount of grey matter at the top that causes the extra damage.

  19. Buccaneer says:

    Nice point, sorry, hollow point…

  20. JC says:

    Homer, you never surprise on the downside of stupidity. Never!
