Friday Night Party Music


Sorry, bit “late”. Was on a wikibinge…

It’s dark, it’s chilled…

And just so happens to be my favourite genre.

And cats dig Goa

(not too loud this time lest teh nay bores rip out a kitchen knife again)

If your neighbours aren’t poor, frustrated, uneducated psychopaths, feel free to turn it up!

UPDATE

Further evidence re cats…

UPDATE II

Four hours and 20 minutes after 4:20

Providence…

Re Herman Cain: too much fuss?


Out in LaLa Land, they don’t appear to really care.

TMZ:

Everybody makes sexual harassment claims now. It’s so common that it’s lost the impact because it’s made so much.

Voiceover: Yeah, he’d have to kill his room-mate in Italy or misplace his baby to get any real heat.

If you’re not the office jerk, maybe you should consider it


I suspect readers who’ve worked in an office may be well aware of this.

There’s one in every workplace: the office jerk. And, according to a new study, that jerk is probably making more money than you, if it’s a male.

The theory that men with low agreeability out-earn their nicer counterparts was proven in four different studies. People who perceive themselves to be less agreeable earned an average of 18% more than their more-agreeable coworkers.

IS ACORN/NYCC paying protesters?


We saw yesterday just how many hard Leftist groups are involved one way or another in the OWS protests.

And now?

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York — operating as New York Communities for Change — have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

Source:

“It was pretty funny. [NYCC organizing director] Jonathan [Westin] told staff they don’t pay for protesters, but the people in the meeting who work there objected and said, ‘Wait, you pay us to go to the protests every day?’ Then Jonathan said ‘No, but that’s your job,’ and staffers were like, ‘Yeah, our job is to protest,’ and Westin said, ‘No your job is to fight for economic and social justice. We just send you to protest.’

“Staff said, ‘Yes, you pay us to carry signs.’ Then Jonathan says, ‘That’s your job.’ It went on like that back and forth for a while.”

Ahh, a world of hard-Leftist bliss…

NYCC is also monitoring its staff’s behavior, cracking down on phone use and socialization. Officials have ordered all papers — even scraps — to be shredded every night, the source said.

“And all the supplies—everything around the office that said ‘ACORN’ — is now all in storage until this blows over,” the source said. “People literally have to cover up the cameras on the back of their cellphones in the office.”

“Now there’s no texting in the office, no phone calls in the office. They tell us to take our phone calls out into the waiting room where there’s an intercom, and then they turn on the intercom to hear our conversations. They’re installing new cameras and speakers around the building so they can hear everything.

… Where everyone can be a Winston Smith

Get me a bucket


Is there anything more excruciating to look at than world leaders laughing and hugging each other?

And from the article:

Leaders hail her frank, Aussie style intervention

And this:

Ms Gillard received strong backing from G20 leaders for bolstering the resources of the International Monetary Fund to shore up the uncertain global economy.

The International Julia.

Great, she’s just thrown even more of our hard-earned billions away propping up decacdent socialist regimes that refuse to be responsible and live within their means.

PS I’m not against the lending of money (with interest) and/or helping people out.

Just in this case, I don’t think we’ll get it back, and TBH, giving Greece more free money probably isn’t really “helping” anyway.

Like a kid who spends his weekly pocket money all in one day, Greece needs to learn a lesson.

What is it with the terrible names for the new 007 movies?


Quantum of Solace was bad enough but now we have…

Skyfall

Seriously? Skyfall?

All those months whilst production was held up to think about it and they came up with Skyfall?

Regardless, can’t wait!

Good work if you can get it…


Kim Kardashian; being in Korea, I’ve (likely thankfully) been oblivious to all the hoo har surrounding her and the show.

After honouring commitments to promote handbags in Sydney, the socialite told marquee sponsor Swisse a race day appearance would be “too much”, waiving her estimated $150,000-an-hour fee.

$150K

An hour.

I’m in the wrong business, LOL!

I don’t like what he’s saying, but…


…Freedom of Speech should give him the right to say it, no matter how much we detest it.

FEDERAL police are investigating a heartless website campaign by a Muslim extremist desecrating the memory of fallen soldiers.

As the bodies of three Diggers killed by a rogue Afghan soldier began their journey home this week, radical Ibrahim Siddiq-Conlon caused outrage among grieving families by launching a cruel Facebook page attacking the men, the Herald Sun reported.

Unless he’s actually trying to incite violence, as deplorable as his views are, they should be allowed.

He’s sick in the head, but they’re just words.

Funny how when Andrew Bolt calls for an end to racial segregation, the Left hound him down.

Now?

Not a peep.

Was Justin Bieber… raped?


Because the Eurozone collapsing and threats of nuclear war with Iran sometimes just isn’t enough.

Story.

Sorry, it’s Friday, and that headline was just begging to be written…

That reminds me…


I’d better pick up some dunny paper before LBB gets home.

No referendum for Greece


And no pointless crap on whether it was the right thing to do, because in the Greek case it was clear that had a referendum been held, it would have been rejected… and had it not been held… ?

It will be imposed by a democratically elected government…

And that government will be subsequently voted out…

Perhaps the Greek government’s proposed referendum on austerity measures was the right (moral) thing to do, but only in a hypothetical sense.

Now the result is that much closer, which means any recovery is that much closer.

Either way, Greece must default and leave the EU. Get their currency and sovereign democracy back on track.

Sorry. Realpolitik

The Herman Cain?


Give Dubya a call.
