Not counting the news outlets or websites along the full range of accuracy and veracity, I follow multiple actual individuals' handwritten blogs. (Bot news aggregators don't thrill me.) Looking them over, many are current serving or former military and a couple are some variation of high-speed low-drag elite forces ninjas. Or cops. Or just funny as all. Because life without humor is just despair. So in other words, the same folks I trusted in the military not to wet the bed, sh*t themselves, or otherwise run around like headless Nancys, are the same folks I trust on the interwebz, for demonstrating pretty much the same trustworthiness and circumspectly responsible behavior. Color me shocked.
Comments are fully moderated, due to idiots and trolls. Grown up discussion here will appear just as soon as I have the time to push it through. No warning shots will be fired. If you can't maintain decorum and polite behavior, I won't toy with you, I'll squash you. If one of your comments disappears, you f**ked up. If all of them do, it's time for you to go. Disagree with the points made, on the merits, and you're good. Go after me personally, or other commenters, and your comment will never see daylight here. My tolerance for skirting the line is at absolute zero, and will remain there. Don't f**k up.
It's time to come to the realization that the whole rough, rugged, independent character of Australia has been dead for a generation or two. Hell, if they didn't start shooting when they came for the guns, they aren't gonna start now, especially when the lockdown idiocy is so damn popular.
The whole image Down Under is a farce.
Ya know, Australia is just full of nasty creepy crawlies that could cause death by natural causes if they were to end up in somebody's bed, shoes, car, face mask... Just sayin.
Anyone make Liberators?
Need to ship a couple million to Taiwan
A free man is disarmed when he chooses to be. A sock with a rock, a tree limb, a kitchen knife or a butter knife sharpened on the concrete. Many other evil ideas some to mind.
All can make a wayward soldier or policeman lose their interest in their weapons :-O! Ask the Ghosts of the Wehrmacht Soldiers that were lured into an alley in the Ghettos of Warsaw Poland.
A person can be armed to the teeth with ammo for decades of Irish Trouble and *Still* be disarmed even though they brag on the internet of 1000 yard "accuracy" if they DONOT have the spirit to fight.
Everybody has heard the "Burned in the Camps" quote so I'll not repost that.
“At what point, then, should one resist? When one's belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one's home? An arrest consists of a series of incidental irrelevancies, of a multitude of things that do not matter, and there seems no point in arguing about one of them individually...and yet all these incidental irrelevancies taken together implacably constitute the arrest. ”
― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
Step by step they strip your will to resist.
“Every man always has handy a dozen glib little reasons why he is right not to sacrifice himself.”

To misquote Lee Greenwood so often a Meme But, But, But IF they CROSS THIS Red Line blah, blah, blah
Are we waiting like the Australians for a leader? The Powers That Be will NEVER Allow one to rise up, look to that Marine Lt. Col getting evaluated for "Mental Illness" JUST like in the Former Soviet Union.... OR are we waiting until we have Nothing to Lose? Like the Frog slowly boiled until we cannot escape the boiling pot?
Unless we can stand with our Founding Fathers Declaration of Independence WILLING to suffer, be impoverished, in prison or dead WE too can become COVID Gulag prisoners' for all our bold internet comments.
They Swore: And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Anything you say on the internet can and likely will be used against you in the Kangaroo Court. Accept that we are all on some list. Currently we're too small a fish to fry.
That will change, the Socialists will never stop. Vote Harder? REALLY?? They cheated and suddenly they will go honest next time, really?
GMay maybe WE should look in the mirror and ask the hard questions of ourselves.
Small groups, closed mouths, bad attitudes. Those that do don't talk about it on open communication lines like this.
I like 19Crimes wine-they even have one from Snoop Dogg. From their website:The history is brutal. Penal transportation — the practice of removing convicts from society and sending them far, far away, often to penal colonies established specifically for that purpose — was the punishment of choice for particular sets of crimes in a number of countries for many centuries. In England, though, it was undoubtedly at its height for the 80 years between 1788 and 1868. During this period, petty criminals and political prisoners alike were transported sometimes to America, but more frequently to Australia — where, it should be noted, the folks who set up the penal colonies conveniently ignored the fact that there were, y’know, already indigenous people living there — in order to alleviate overcrowding in British prisons and ease up on the court issuing so many death sentences. More than 160,000 convicts ultimately ended up in Australia as a result of penal transportation.
The 19 Crimes:
Grand Larceny, theft above the value of one shilling
Petty Larceny, theft under one shilling.
Buying or receiving stolen goods, jewels, and plate...
Stealing lead, iron, or copper, or buying or receiving.
Impersonating an Egyptian.
Stealing from furnished lodgings.
Setting fire to underwood.
Stealing letters, advancing the postage, and secreting the money.
Assault with an intent to rob.
Stealing fish from a pond or river.
Stealing roots, trees, or plants, or destroying them.
Assaulting, cutting, or burning clothes.
Counterfeiting the copper coin...
Stealing a shroud out of a grave.
Watermen carrying too many passengers on the Thames, if any drowned.
Incorrigible rogues who broke out of Prison and persons reprieved from capital punishment.
Embeuling Naval Stores, in certain cases.
It damned near reads like a Department of Justice White Offenses. I wish the Aussies would remember their history!
I second that motion!
Aussies have guns. My understanding is the actual number of guns went up after Howard`'s ban. They aren't as effective as the ones before but are decently numerous. I have no doubt there are guns and ammo buried here and there was well and any machine shop can turn out a Sten Gun.
Aussies had a reputation but not as vicious killers some soldiers aside but laid back with occasional craziness. Its not enough for what's coming up.
Wars like that are to the knife to the hilt, nits makes lice , guilt by association collective punishment for three generations level nastiness,. This is what it takes and this would flat out destroy that nation. Drooping from 26 million to like 15 is an end game.
There is also no victory condition, You just nuked your democracy, killed millions of people for power and responsibility you don't want . Its not that different than what is going on here. No one wants authority they want to go home and that is something you can't do for decades if you win.
The Taliban could win because they had goal, roughly impose Sharia Law with them in charge. Our guys cannot as there are no goals.
And if you win in Oz you'd better stay in charge because even if the PRC doesn't invade, you have to get all the old holdovers because there will be a counter revolution paid for by China.
I wish they could get rid of these people but there is not damned thing anyone can do but them, we can't get rid of our own issues and have Canada to deal with too.
Australia is a very hard place to live. Distances are huge. The continent is ancient, there's little arable land. The place is chock full of poisonous bugs, snakes and even plants that will kill or cripple you for life if you brush the leaves. Google for the Gympie-gympie bush, whose leaves are covered with thousands of hypodermics full of acid, as an example.
Life here can be hard. There's not many of us...25 million in a space larger than the continental USA.
The result is that getting along...conforming...being part of the group is ingrained in us, because outsiders don't last long. We've always been rugged, but we're not individualists, like people in the USA.
The powerful in our society exploit that tendency. The MSM propaganda is relentless. We used to be a nation of riflemen, and now gun owners like me are almost outcasts. The propaganda to take the Vax, to suck up the lockdowns etc is enormous, and the majority conform.
But even here, things are at breaking strain.
What can't go on forever, won't.
Thanks for the update from down under LSWCHP Its good and very clarifying to hear from people who are actually there.
Like LSWCHP I am from Oz, ( I think LSWCHP is from NSW? - as per previous comments on the original WeaponsMan blog? ), whereas I am from what some inhabitants are now calling the Democratic Socialist Communist Peoples Republic of Victoria, and it is turning into a complete hell hole down here. We have almost been locked down for the longest period anywhere in the world, the state premier is from the left wing ALP party and he is acting like the worst aspects of Stalin and Mao.
We have a curfew in place from 9.00 pm to 5.00 am, despite the fact that the medical chief officer and the police have advised that it does nothing to stop the spread of Covid.
There is a level of anger in society that is really becoming more and more visible now, even people who would normally vote left are angry about what is happening. There is this level of tension in society that if the pressure valve is not released soon then there may come a point where it may not be able to be controlled and if that happens then politicians and the media are likely to be targets.
A lot of people have also historically held the police in high regard, that has gone out the window over the past 18 months as a lot of police seem to be enjoying acting like Nazi thugs, in one well known case handcuffing a pregnant women ( 5 foot 1 inches tall ) in front of her young two crying sons and husband. She was never any threat to them, they were just being assholes. I will attach a link to a twitter link ( Unsure if I am allowed to do that ) which shows the police being assholes.
As LSWCHP has said the media is 98% in on propaganda and everyone must get the Vax jab ( and if you don't you are being treated like a leper), the level of "othering" for people who are being called "anti-vaxers", even if they may have a reason to not get the vax, is exactly like what the Nazi's did to various groups in the lead up to, and during WW2.
I am really worried about how far things will go before they go so far that nothing will be able to stop the blowback. Our state has lost thousands and thousands of businesses and there will be so many people whose financial futures have been destroyed and who will never be able to recover.
Those who are supportive of the government tend to be public servants ( servants - Ha !!! ) who have not lost any money or income, but have been able to work from home, they have also received pay increases and a working from home allowance, so life is pretty sweet for them, not so much everyone else.
