    Defending Brett Kavanaugh

    Yeah. Take it up with the First Amendment, not me.

    Defending Brett Kavanaugh

    Not really. The all share the common law system, but that's about as far as the similarities go. In any event, this isn't a court of law, it's a senate hearing. (a point which seems to be getting lost in all this discussion about due process and innocent until guilty). The US judiciary, and...

    Oh well. Not my country, not my worry.

    Defending Brett Kavanaugh

    Anyone who was involved with Starr is the enemy of the Dems. Kavanaugh authored the Starr report so the Dems went fishing to see what they'd find. It's not a courtroom so innocent until proven guilty blah blah doesn't mean anything. It's no different to the usual muck that gets hurled around in...

    Defending Brett Kavanaugh

    A seven seat, unelected body interprets an ancient, poorly written document composed by a handful of rural tax-evaders, and then delivers binding opinions that dictate the supposed morality of the country. That's why its politicised.

    Politicise the judiciary then complain that its politicised. Muppets.

    SRX - Sirtex Medical

    Turns out I wasn't jumping at shadows... https://www.afr.com/business/health/biotechnology/exsirtex-medical-ceo-gilman-wong-charged-with-insider-trading-20180926-h15vt8

    Legalise some drugs, outlaw others?

    God, Gladys is hopeless. All this wasted money on fighting drugs. Cocaine is the same price it was 20 years ago, and pingers are even cheaper than they used to be. Shutting down yet more of Sydney's nightlife won't change anything. People in Sydney treat having a line or pill like having a beer.

    Positive Earnings but Net Loss?

    No. The first three are synonyms. NB be careful when companies refer to operating income as this is a synonym for EBIT, ie how profitable the business is without taking into account how it's financed. Revenue is sales. Startups tend to run unprofitable for a while. In Australia, there is a...

    ZNT - Zenitas Healthcare

    What was the ASX, and the company itself, doing allowing ZNT to trade briefly this morning when the AFR was reporting a t/o but the company had not yet made an announcement? Poor form.

    ZNT - Zenitas Healthcare

    Private equity offer at $1.46/share. Nice.

    The ScoMo Government

    My polling at my local pub is far more accurate than any ReachTel poll. ;) Last week when it looked like it was going to be Dutton the protest vote was on. Last night most people had reverted to normal programming.

    Tony Abbott - Indigneous envoy

    It's not that long a bow. Imagine it was a crossbencher who got offered an "envoy" position. His vote was important to the government passing legislation. The government can't bring him into the ministry so they create a BS job title "special envoy for the promotion of wet t-shirt comps" which...

    The ScoMo Government

    The same sex thing will play well in Bondi and the western parts of Wentworth that are close to the inner city, but will be pretty ho-hum anywhere east of Double Bay. The lack of action on climate change is what will drive the protest vote as well as the ditching on a popular local member. From...

    LOV - Lovisa Holdings

    It was a bit below my usual position size. I just remember looking at everything and thinking what am I missing here, because on paper it was a no-brainer, so I held back a bit. Like I said above, I think it's still a great business, but they're going aggressively overseas now which will...
