63m gun repossessions?

Kamala Harris’ brilliance knows no bounds. She intends to repossess guns from “racists”. If we use the strict definition from the Democrats, all 63mn Trump voters will lose their guns.

Thank God China has clarified the Pacific Island claims with action

One would think China is channeling the former Iraqi Ministry of Information.

China’s Special Envoy to the Pacific, Ambassador Wang Xuefeng, told the Pacific Island Forum in Tuvalu,

“As the largest developing country in the world, China always attaches great importance to the special concerns and legitimate demands of small island countries in combating climate change…Developed countries should earnestly carry out their obligations set out in the (UN Climate Change) Convention and the (Paris) Agreement, including providing sufficient support in terms of finance, technology and capacity-building to small island countries and other developing countries to help them increase their capacities in combating climate change.”

What he should have added was,

We intend to belch as much CO2 as we please until 2030. We know we’re already 29.3% of global CO2 emissions. We’re not sure why but until the Extinction Rebellion Beijing chapter starts we figure it mustn’t be a concern in China. ”

Perhaps the most laughable part of it was to say all countries, big or small, are equal in China’s eyes. Except HK, Taiwan, Paracelsus, Spratly and Senkaku Islands.

It wasn’t so long ago that CM was covering machinery stocks and local Chinese governments preferred industry polluted because it meant fines that filled up their coffers. The industry obliged because it was cheaper to produce by paying the fines.

Perhaps China will open its doors to all these climate refugees when whole villages are forced to move to mountain tops.

We should expect that Ambassador Wang will travel by sailing boat to future summits. It’s for the planet you know.

Morons of Moreland

It seems the woke lefties in Melbourne based Moreland City Council have proposed a meat ban on Mondays to help with the climate emergency.

What a surprise the Greens-led loonies have sought to virtue signal in this way. At least one of the conservative councilors, Oscar Yildiz, said the ban was “pathetic.”

Yildiz continued with,

This is just them chipping away gradually at things, and this is what they do…They’re trying to get rid of parking down Sydney Road…They’ll just do a trial and then say ‘you know what, we surveyed three people and 95 per cent of them said yes, so let’s get rid of parking on Sydney Road!

CM is sure their carbon footprint will be cut by 0.000000000000000000000000001%.

How do these people get voted in? Utter time wasters.

Here is betting these Greens councilors haven’t a clue on anything to do with the climate emergency or methane in the atmosphere caused by flatulent livestock.

2/3rds of Rugby Australia cash would disappear

Folau.png

Rugby Australia’s (RA) CEO Raelene Castle says that the franchise can weather paying out Izzy Folau’s $10m claim. Although CM is not sure that paying out $10m + costs which would wipe out almost 2/3rds of the $18mn in cash on the balance sheet is something a CEO would think is worth boasting. What she needs to focus on is the declining operating performance.

Hopefully, Chairman Clyne will get his CEO to focus on NZ Rugby (NZR) as a benchmark.

RA took in approximately A$30m in licensing and sponsorship last year. NZR raked in A$65m. More than double for a country with one-fifth the population. Think about it. The advertising base is smaller yet the sponsors must see the returns as superior to do so.

Total revenues for RA sum to around A$110m. NZR takes in A$182m in 2018.

Matchday revenue for RA reached A$20m last year. NZR collected A$28m.

Total assets for RA sum to A$69m. NZR total assets are A$183m. Total equity for RA is A$27m vs NZR at $99m.

Perhaps understanding why the Wallabies franchise saw a 20% fall in revenues in 2018 is a bigger issue. Expenses fell 15% mainly due to slashing Super Rugby team costs in half and player costs by 33%. Without that, the company would have sunk deep in the red.

RA needs to focus on growth not cut itself into oblivion. When it prioritizes its customer base rather than put precious resources into virtue signaling and diversity programs the board wouldn’t need to park 2/3rds of the cash to cover up their catastrophic lack of judgment.

Nonetheless good to know Castle sleeps easy at the thought of losing such magnitudes.

Cue the violins – seriously

Does the Fijian PM have intel that the Tuvaluan PM forgot to share with ScoMo and the media on people abandoning their homes due to climate change? Both should be refusing Chinese easy credit on principle to show their contempt of Beijing’s willful neglect of the climate. Mr Bainimarama should make sure if traveling to PNG to refuse a government Maserati to transfer him from Jackson’s International Airport.

#METOO for blokes?

Katy Kloss.png

Good to see that there is no such thing as toxic femininity. Or is there? Poor old Katy Perry is in a bit of strife after being accused of exposing the genitalia of male model, Josh Kloss. Kloss claims, “as I turned to introduce my friend, she [Katy] pulled my Adidas sweats and underwear out as far as she could to show a couple of her guy friends and the crowd around us, my penis.”

He followed in a tweet saying, “I just say this now because our culture is set on proving men in power are perverse. But females with power are just as disgusting.

Believe all men? Kloss was paid $650 for his role in Teenage Dream. While he is at it he should complain about the rampant gender pay gap in modelling.

Soweto Gospel Choir

A member of the Grammy Award winning Soweto Gospel Choir was fascinated with CM’s bike. Demanded to sit atop. How could one refuse the smile.

The SWG is on tour in Australia. Here for 37 days. Here are the remaining dates.

Video of their performance on the first link. CM will take the Mrs.
