Vale Neddie

I am sorry to report That This sites dog Overlord has passed away

NED ON HIS FIRST DAY HOME

After a few years living with Diabetes which saw him lose his sight 3 times and enduring the operations to restore it as well as a couple of bouts of Pancreatitis and the torments of his little brother Neds little body had had enough .He was a champion dog always happy no matter what . Everyone who got to meet Ned loved him . He didnt have a mean bone in his body. In the end it was the hardest decision of my life but as silly as this sounds the easiest. Neddie was going to suffer and he didn,t deserve that. To have kept him going a bit longer would have been unbelievable selfish on my part.

  1. Niki Savva says “Morrison should have found a way to avoid going to Trump’s “G7” meeting.”

    Of course he should have, but apparently he nagged, begged pleaded and annoyed US officials until he was given an invitation. Then he boasted about Trump phoning him to make the invitation.

    Scott Morrison confirms talks with US about attending postponed G7 summit
    Spokesman says PM will attend if invited, after US president cited Australia among possible additions to event line-up

    Most of that 15 minute phone call would have been taken up by the CrimeMinister blathering about his gratitude for the invitation and his complete devotion to Trump. Sane world leaders have distanced themselves from Trump, but not our leader. He grovels to Trump, his behaviour is sickening.

    Albo should not just distance Australia from the US, he should rip up the ANZUS Treaty as well. It is pointless, just ensures Australia will always provide cannon fodder for US wars.

  2. This is getting (more) insane

    In Washington DC, personnel from the National Guard, US Park Police, Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, US Marshals Service, Bureau of Prisons, Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement are all out patrolling the streets.

    Because Washington is a district, not a state, the President and federal government have more leeway to deploy a range of officers.

  3. So someone created a fake study claiming people died when were given hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19 and everyone has resumed studies on the use of this very dangerous drug.

    All the nutters from Trump to Clive Palmer and way down to Pete Evans have had their way and we can now look forward to being dosed with this stuff.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/03/covid-19-surgisphere-who-world-health-organization-hydroxychloroquine

    Let’s just forget all the legitimate studies that have proved this drug does nothing for victims of
    Covid-19 but really does put them in danger of dying from its well-known side effects.

    As I have said before my auto-immune condition means I could take this drug should my current remission end. I would refuse it, if that happened, just as I refused another rather toxic drug, methotrexate, six years ago when my specialist was discussing possible treatments. I ended up not needing any of the drugs on offer as I went into remission after using prednisalone for months.

    If I am ever offered hydroxychloroquine as a preventative against Covid-19 I will refuse it. I’d rather take my chances with the virus than risk my life with a drug that has so many known risks and side effects.

  4. Joe Hockey has been given a job at Sky News as a “US political contributor”.

    HoJo wasted no time putting the boot into all non-Murdoch media.

  5. In Australia our PM can’t get enough of Trump. He’s almost the only leader who doesn’t want to distance themselves from Trump.

    In Europe, after years of snubs and American unilateralism, America’s traditional allies have stopped looking to him for leadership, no longer trust that this president will offer them much, and are turning their backs on him.

    That was evidenced most obviously this week by the decision of the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, not to attend the Group of 7 meeting Mr. Trump wanted so badly in Washington this month to show that the virus was behind him and the world was returning to normal.

    Ms. Merkel cited the lingering threat of the virus, but a senior German official who spoke on the condition of anonymity made clear that she had other reasons to decline: She believed that proper diplomatic preparations had not been made; she did not want to be part of an anti-China display; she opposed Mr. Trump’s idea of inviting the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin; she did not want to be seen as interfering in American domestic politics.

    And she was shocked by Mr. Trump’s sudden, unilateral decision to pull out of the World Health Organization

  6. Things are dire when you get LEGO off-side

    Lego has asked its partners to pull all marketing for police themed sets as part of its response to the ongoing black lives matter protests in the US.

    More than 30 building sets, minifigures and accessories are included on the list, distributed amongst affiliate marketers and widely published on social media.

    Amongst the sets to be pulled are “Police Dog Unit”, “Police Bike” and “Police Station”, but also some products with a less obvious connection to the police, including “Fire Plane”, “Barbecue Burn Out” and “Donut Shop Opening”.

    The Lego Architecture version of the White House, a £90 model intended for adult builders, is also included on the list.

  7. A pithy summary

    The government’s “homebuilder” program is surely in the running for the most mendacious piece of public policy since Peter Costello decided to give tax refunds to people who don’t pay income tax.

    To kickstart what prime minister Scott Morrison calls a “tradie-led recovery”, the government will provide grants of $25,000 to eligible home owner-occupiers, through a temporary program that will deliver an estimated $688m over six months to individuals who earned up to $125,000 last financial year or couples who earned up to $200,000.

    To get the grant, they must enter into a contract between now and December to build a new home worth up to $750,000 or to “substantially renovate” an existing one valued at up to $1.5m, with a minimum renovation cost of $150,000.

    If you set out to design a fiscal stimulus measure that would fail to meet any objective economic criteria, you couldn’t do much better than this.
