THE drama that is the life of Lara Bingle is about to become a real-life, televised soap opera.Oh, I think certain things will be off-limits thanks to restrictions in that timeslot. And they're the only things which have made her famous.
The bikini model has signed a lucrative deal with Network Ten to star in her own primetime reality series, and says nothing will be off limits.
What do you expect from a Rothschild? There is kind of a history of taking what belongs to other people there.Those were some of the more tasteful comments. Rapists and murderers have been called nicer things.
Such a *****...I hope she gets what she deserves. Her children are probably demon children too...gosh

Israeli ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor, February 13:Perhaps an angry letter?
STOP standing on the sidelines watching murder after murder. . . do something
The video of Kevin Rudd swearing has only lifted his popularity. We have all had these frustrating moments in life and we need a human being in the role of Labor Party leader, not a saint. I don't vote Labor but if I did it would be Rudd for leader. Thank you that poster, hope your foot doesn't hurt too much from the gunshot wound.I wonder if someone from Rudd's camp released the tape.

About a year after Pole created his pregnancy-prediction model, a man walked into a Target outside Minneapolis and demanded to see the manager. He was clutching coupons that had been sent to his daughter, and he was angry, according to an employee who participated in the conversation.
“My daughter got this in the mail!” he said. “She’s still in high school, and you’re sending her coupons for baby clothes and cribs? Are you trying to encourage her to get pregnant?”
The manager didn’t have any idea what the man was talking about. He looked at the mailer. Sure enough, it was addressed to the man’s daughter and contained advertisements for maternity clothing, nursery furniture and pictures of smiling infants. The manager apologized and then called a few days later to apologize again.
On the phone, though, the father was somewhat abashed. “I had a talk with my daughter,” he said. “It turns out there’s been some activities in my house I haven’t been completely aware of. She’s due in August. I owe you an apology.”
During my recent visit to Papua New Guinea, I constantly heard complaints about the absurd number of Western advisers who were coming to the country telling locals how to live their lives. It’s a form of neo-colonialism.This from a fellow who sits in Sydney trying to tell Israelis how to run their country, and who according to his inflated profile:
sits on the advisory council of the British-based Sri Lanka Campaign for Peace and Justice.It's a form of neo-stupidity.

A Victorian MP is pushing for a three-fold increase in penalties imposed on drivers who open car doors in front of cyclists, that would make the offence the equivalent of running a red light.The problem grows...
Mr Barber said so-called "dooring" incidents were a growing problem and that a hefty increase in penalties would help educate drivers to look for cyclists before opening a car door.Perhaps they already do.

More than 110 Australians have been killed in overseas terrorist attacks in the past decadeNotice any descriptors missing? Indeed the only specifics about any terrorist were in this paragraph:
Australians have been directly affected by terrorism and violent extremism. We are not immune to these threats, nor should we forget the many Australians who have lost their lives to acts of terrorism, including the 88 people who lost their lives in the Bali bombings on 12 October 2002. Over 200 Australians have also been injured, many seriously, in overseas terrorist attacks.
Since 2001, Australian law enforcement and security agencies have foiled four major terrorist plots on Australian soil
Law enforcement and security agencies in Australia have been successful in detecting and disrupting terrorist attacks before they could occur. In some cases, information provided by the community has been instrumental in preventing attacks that could have caused serious loss of life. While law enforcement will continue to be important, broader strategies including community initiatives are needed to challenge the ideologies and grievances that fuel terrorism in the first place.
Not all violent extremists are part of an organised group. Some act aloneWhat rubbish. Roshonara Choudry didn't act individually at all. She was well and truly a member of an international extremist organisation. It just doesn't have an office building.
Although many violent extremists are part of international and national extremist organisations, others have acted individually. Examples include Anders Behring Breivik in Norway and Roshonara Choudry in Britain. We need to be vigilant against lone extremists as well as the ideologies that push them to commit violence.
The police investigation found that in the last quarter of 2009 Choudhry began downloading from the internet sermons and material from Anwar al-Awlaki, the Islamist cleric who western officials say is the spiritual leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. He preached the need for violent action to combat the atrocities of the west against Muslims around the world, and urged followers to do what they could, when they could, no matter how small.The AG Department's definition of "violent extremism" is just as pathetic for its desperate avoidance of stating the dominant threat to this country.
One might conclude that the "attacks conducted by al-Qaeda" were something to do with abortion or gun-control. Also, while they specified the "Right-Wing" was responsible for violence, I'm pretty sure the smelly hippies at every anti-globalisation protests were from the Left-Wing, unnamed.
Examples of violent extremism
Separatist and nationalist causes
- Violence linked to anti-immigration causes
- Violence to gain political/national independence, such as action by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) in the United Kingdom, or ETA (a Basque separatist group operating primarily in Spain)
- Violence during anti-globalisation protests
- Anarchist violence
- Right-wing violence (such as the July 2011 attacks in Norway and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995)
- Violence by individuals or groups against abortion clinics or doctors
- Violence in the name of religion (such as attacks conducted by Al‑Qaeda)
- Violence or destruction of property by groups for causes such as environmental protection, animal rights or anti-gun control
A senior lawmaker says Iran's Majlis is considering a plan to cut off the country's economic transactions with South Korea's Samsung in reaction to the company's anti-Iran teaser.Samsung had nothing to do with the ad, which was produced by an Israeli Cable TV network, but why should that matter?
Head of Majlis Energy Committee Arsalan Fat'hipour said the double-urgency plan, aimed at imposing a complete ban on buying all Samsung products, would make the company regret making the insulting teaser.
Fat'hipour said Samsung's apology to the Iranian nation, though necessary, would not be enough and that the company must be held accountable for producing the teaser.There's that Islamic sense of humour we've come to love.

As part of the global Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, Students for Palestine is beginning 2012 by taking on corporations in Melbourne's CBD that support the theft of Palestinian land and the brutality of the Israeli military.
We will begin our tour in the Bourke St Mall and then end at Max Brenner.
Look out for the Tour Guides dressed in Palestinian colours.
roads in and out of the besieged suburb of Baba Amr, in the south-east of Homs, were blocked, preventing the evacuation of children and the wounded, and food, water and medicine were running out.When Muslims kill Muslims, and there are no Jews involved, nobody cares. Enjoy your boycott kiddies. Don't forget to chant stuff about "justice" and "genocide"...
Speaking at an international gathering in Sweden, the British prime minister, David Cameron, said: "It is quite clear this is a regime hell-bent on killing, murdering and maiming its own citizens … we need to take the toughest possible response we can."
More than 100 people were reported dead in Homs on Thursday during heavy bombardment by government forces, but that figure could not be independently confirmed in the absence of observers or humanitarian organisations. A local resident, Basil Abu Fouad, said it was impossible to estimate casualties accurately.
"We can't count the number of the dead in the rubble. When we pull someone from the rubble, we don't know if they were killed today, yesterday or before," Abu Fouad said by phone from a basement in Baba Amr.
"They are using helicopters and mortars and tanks, T-72 [former Soviet] tanks. Hundreds of homes have been demolished and they have come down on the heads of their owners.
"Communications have been completely cut off between neighbourhoods. The army have blocked access to the city. Some people tried to escape but they found all the roads were closed. There is no food left in the city. We don't have milk. All the water tanks have been targeted. We don't have medicines. If you go to the shops and try to get in, the snipers up on the roofs will shoot you," he said.
"The children will die here. All the people want is to escape. They can smash this place if they want. We just want to get out of there. But they won't allow us."
Dani Abdul Dayan, a resident of the Insha'at, next to Baba Amr, claimed the army had taken over the Hikma hospital, expelled doctors and was using the patients as human shields. The claim could not be verified.
In Homs, Abu Fouad said the security council veto had given the regime a green light to commit genocide against the Syrian people. "The whole world is against us. Nobody is helping us," he said, before the electricity failed. "There is nothing left but to pray."
BUTTE, Mont. (AP)--A 55-year-old Montana man who says he "always wanted'' to be part of a police chase can check that off his bucket list.Apparently driving something quicker that handles better than an SUV doesn't appear on his bucket list.
The Montana Standard reports John C. Hughes followed a patrol car for seven blocks early Thursday before pulling his SUV around and taking off at speeds of up to 70 mph.
Officers say the Butte man was driving faster than 100 mph [160kph] on an interstate toward Rocker, Mont.
Officers in that city laid out a spiked strip to flatten the tires on the SUV.
A police report says Hughes told officers he "just always wanted'' to see what it would be like to be in a police chase. Officers say Hughes had not been drinking.
Hughes faces a charge of reckless driving while eluding police.

The sordid saga of abuse and administrative callousness inflicted upon Jordan Nash – and his long-suffering mother Jennifer – began about a decade ago in Brisbane, where Jordan was being severely bullied as the result of an untreated expressive and receptive speech language disorder, which severely affected his learning as a child and made him a target for other children. Exacerbating this situation, Jordan was also subject to a learning disability, though not one that was severe enough to warrant him attending a school for children with special needs.Ms Nash complained to her local member and after (ahem) occupying the space outside his office for several weeks was ignored. See if you can work out the problem.
Nash was immediately denied the right to speak, told to leave by MP Mickel and brutally removed from the public gallery by an armed Queensland Police Officer who used excessive force to remove her and caused her fear, pain and bruises to both upper arms when he violently forced her down the stairs of parliament.No mention of the permanent hearing loss the officer would have suffered.
On ejection from parliament building, the aggrieved mother was unable to take her handbag with her and was threatened with arrest when she requested the return of her bag.He has now missed all of high school. This kid hasn't got a chance, thanks to his caring Mum.
The Police officer then made a phone call on his mobile phone and moments later two paddy wagons and an additional half a dozen Police officers arrived in a show of force and "lack of diplomacy" which Jennifer Nash says is inconsistent with the Police's Mission statement "To serve the people in Queensland by protecting life and property, preserving peace and safety, preventing crime and upholding the law in a manner which has regard for the public good and the rights of the individual."
A combination of overfishing and ocean acidification (caused by rising concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere) has creating the perfect conditions for this shift from a system dominated by fish to a system dominated by jellyfish.Don't worry George, jellyfish aren't taking over the oceans just yet:
In the last decade, gelatinous blobs have reportedly clogged up water treatment and power plants, overrun fish farms, and hampered fishermen around the world. They even forced the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan out of the Port of Brisbane in 2006.
But claims they will dominate our oceans are not supported by data, says Winthrop Professor Carlos Duarte director of the Oceans Institute at the University of Western Australia.
Diversity has killed discrimination, which is a bad thing indeed. People should discriminate against bad ideas. They should be jaundiced against jihad, sick of sexism and hate homophobia. But if you do that you will be labeled an Islamophobe. And, by the way, your right to free speech has also been sacrificed to the great leftist meme of diversity.
However, if in fact your religious beliefs embody jihad, sexism and homophobia the intellectual elite and their house organs like the ABC and Fairfax will sensitively lick your arse and the government will throw money at you under a policy developed no doubt by some deadbeat deathwishing drongo in the public service.
Western civilisation is well and truly fucked. The beneficiaries of past struggles for human rights care not for their cultural inheritance. It will not be transmitted to even one further generation. The diversity-mongers have seen to that.
Porcine pollution princess, Gina Rhino-arse, puts pseudoscientist Pliemer (silent "p") on retainer.Jeez, who knew Lefties regard rich females with such contempt. By the way, the comment is at Tim Lambert's Dulltard snake-pit.
You are never, in a million years, going to make anything but a hash of media ownership, for one very simple reason: you have never had to do a lick of managerial work in your life. All you had to do was sit tight while your old man gifted a big bunch of dirt to you, dirt that the rest of the world wanted so badly they would pay billions to get it. You have never had to actually manage your companies because a platoon of toady managers do all that for you. Like other famous business children, such as Packer and those two Murdoch dunces, the minute you decide you can actually make a business decision, it all goes immediately wrong. OneTel, anyone?Looks like the emergence of multiple cases of Rinehart Derangement Syndrome.
Smacking kids can be tantamount to child abuse and should be banned in Australia, the nation's leading paediatricians said yesterday.This was one of the most hotly discussed topics on talkback radio today as well.
Mosque's lesson in dealing with ASIOWhy do people think that opposing Jihadi suicide bombing, head-chopping, women-hating ideology is the result of a Jewish plot? There is a very simple reason why any sensible democracy, and any sensible leader of a democracy, would oppose such things. Jewish people of course have plenty of reason to oppose it. I'm sure more people would support the Arab world if it wasn't such a cesspool.
A CAMPAIGN to frustrate the domestic spy agency's attempts to root out homegrown Islamic terrorism is being waged at a mosque linked to a jailed former spiritual leader.
A report on Mr Stary's address features on the society's website, which accuses ASIO of sowing "distrust and fear". The mosque was linked to self-styled Islamic spiritual leader Abdul Nacer Benbrika, 51, who along with six other men was sentenced to jail in 2009 for terrorism offences. Targets included the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Crown casino.
In his address to the mosque, Mr Stary was critical of what he claimed was Australia's pro-Israel stance, adding yesterday that Julia Gillard was showing bias towards Israel. He has hit out at what he described as the influence of the so-called Jewish lobby and added he had been reported accurately by the Islamic society.
Australia-Israel & Jewish Affairs Council executive director Colin Rubenstein said the reported comments were inflammatory.
GREENS MPs and activists have complained that the party's NSW branch is run by a small "cadre" of Leninist-style ideologues whose activities are making it appear to be populated by "lunatics".The Australian has been doing a sterling job exposing the Communist links held by Greens leaders, who evidently have other plans besides saving the odd tree. Read it all.
Bob Briton is likely to finish close to last in a field of nine, so Green preferences will never be distributed to him. Which makes it even more mysterious why the Greens would bother listing him second. Especially ahead of one of their former candidates campaigning on an environmental issue.It's not mysterious at all. The Greens are 'watermelons'. Green on the outside and red in the middle.
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has been swept up in his own embarrassing claim of political plagiarism, appearing to have borrowed from speeches of two American Presidents and a US shock jock in his address to the National Press Club on Tuesday.An example is given:
Apparently not concerned about crossing political divides, Mr Abbott also drew inspiration from Democrat president Barack Obama, quoting the same passage from Abraham Lincoln as Mr Obama used a week ago in his State of the Union address.Abbott directly attributed the comment to Abraham Lincoln (whether Obama said it is irrelevant). How is this plagiarism?
"The current leaders of the Labor Party have failed to understand what Abraham Lincoln knew in the marrow of his bones, that government should do for people what they can't do for themselves and no more," Mr Abbott said.
In outlining his vision of small government and greater individual freedoms as being principles of the Liberal Party, Mr Abbott said: "At the heart of Labor's failure is the assumption that bigger government and higher taxes are the answer to every problem."Hardly an explosive gotcha. It's a well established conservative view that small government is a good thing. Exactly how many way can you reword the same viewpoint to avoid petty claims of copying? Ditto any reference to democracy, freedom or bureaucratic meddling.
On February 2, 1973, Richard Nixon said: "At home, we must reject the mistaken notion ... that even bigger government is the answer to every problem."
Mr Abbott then went on to channel conservative US radio shock jock Rush Limbaugh: "The government has completely failed to appreciate the iron law of economics that no country has ever taxed its way to prosperity."It's debatable whether it's an "iron law" but the comment was based on a pretty well established political viewpoint.
Mr Limbaugh, February 18, 1994: "No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity."

Abbott, Abbott, Abbott. How the heck could you govern the country? You're just a cardboard cut-out of a Politician and Leader. The Liberals need to replace this guy now. The Liberals may be gloating over Albanese, but he doesn't LEAD a Party. If Abbott's the smartest politician the Liberals have, then the Liberal Party will remain in opposition forever. No wonder Gillard has you running around like a negative whinger.

"When the shirt was thrown, there would have been 20 excited people, all with their hands out," she said.Indeed. Why this 14 year old, or indeed a mass of poorly spelled (presumably young) commenters underneath the piece believe it was really intended for her rather than randomly hurled is beyond me. Stuff gets thrown into the crowd at sporting matches as a matter of course and there are plenty of earlier examples of what goes on at the game.
