pocket-lining marchers … ‘frightbats’ and ‘ecobags’

Looks like a whole lot, or maybe just a few, pocket-liners are chasing more of our tax money, but having a difficult time with the numbers in a ‘budget march’.

The Skynews media just said 2000 in Sydney, they sure can’t count.

That’s what happens when you run out of other people’s money. More cuts please. Tim saw a few of these about recently: WISH I’D THOUGHT OF THAT

An even better and more tautly-descriptive word than “frightbat”: ecobag.

Some extra reading matter from Rafe at Catallaxy to make up for my lack of postings, things are getting hectic in the business planning that I am involved in.

Rafe’s roundup 4 July

World news. This is one of my favorite blogs. This is another good one as well.

Climate news. Warming pause approaches 18 years. The cost of renewables.

Ageing celebrities. Remember Ralph Nader?

Nice picture of a big tree.

Books. First editions that you might have been looking for. Recognition for Sean Gabb, a prolific British libertarian.

In the USA. A win for Obama over the US economy. Canadian oil for the Asians.

Around the town. IPA HEY. The Sydney Institute. Australian Taxpayers Alliance, Liberty on the Rocks, the notice board for the ATA: Quadrant on line, Mannkal Foundation, Centre for Independent Studies.

Around the town with Lorenzo, a strolling player. [One] [Two]

The Black Steam Train, not a lot of action but keep him on your radar.

For nerds. Melvyn Bragg’s radio program

The big tree linked above here with many more at the link:

On the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas in California, at 5000-8000 ft above sea level.

Giant%20sequoias%20exist%20in%20only%20one%20place%2C%20where%20The%20President%20and%20smaller%20trees%20that%20make%20up%20his%20%22House%22%20and%20%22Senate%22%2C%20reside.
Until now, the tree had never been photographed in its entirety.
