Don’t sniff the gift horse in the arse

Sue Green is now so old that she gets money just for that, but she’s none too happy:

It’s official: I am a pensioner. On Monday, just three weeks after submitting my 15 – yes, really – forms and supporting documents, much-maligned Centrelink notified me that my age pension application was successful.

Perhaps that’s too many forms to fill out to get free money but still, its free money.

In Defense of the Chinese Communist Party

A Chinese Communist Party official enjoys the romantic attentions of his 18 year old lover.  The back story is here.

The Chinese Communist Party has the absolute right to rule China in any manner it wishes.

This post is not directed at Western meddlers.  It is for the Chinese subjects themselves, including the malcontent rascals in Hong Kong and the expat anti-patriots.  Most of all it is for any mainland Chinese man who dares to question, in his heart of hearts, the legitimacy of his overlords.

This is not an argument based on Read More

What’s wrong with men

I watched public reactions the recent spate of terrorist attacks with sociopathic curiousity.  I wondered, how will the Cultural Marxists spin it?  In their taxonomy of the world, Muslims are a victim class, and so are gays.  So how is it that a Muslim can attack a gay nightclub?  SJWs looked on, shocked, like a zoologist in the field observing a zebra stalking and devouring a wildebeest.  It’s not supposed to happen.

At first the Left put forward an unconvincing narrative about how Muslims are discriminated against in the West and this lack of engagement makes them go all choppy-choppy.  The first problem with this view is that it paints all Muslims as oversensitive maniacs who will blow us up unless we refrain from mocking their religion and ensure they all enjoy excellent careers.  The Left fails to explain why Asian immigrants do not require such mollycoddling.  The second problem is that there’s a shirtload of terrorists over there in the sandlands who were never discriminated against.  In fact, they are in the mainstream, Sunni majority and they are gradually eliminating everybody else.  Clearly a more logically acrobatic narrative was required.

Some commenters on Australian radio had the answer.  All the terrorists belong to the same, privileged group when you stop and think about it: they are Read More

I’m dating a girl.  She’s twenty-five.

I asked her as a joke how many times she’s been married.  She said, ‘Married?  That’s something I’ll think about when I’m, like, thirty.’

I said nothing.

I could have said a lot.

Being well into my thirties myself, I’ve dated many women who have passed the dreaded three-oh.  Pretty much all of them had the same plan.  In their twenties they would travel the world, find themselves, spend all their money and have amazing experiences like Read More
