A start

"The Government expects 470 public service positions will go by the end of next year, State Services Minister Tony Ryall's office has confirmed..."


I can think of another 120 useless, blood-sucking bastards that could go right now.

Now there IS a .46

Saving YOU from yourself

OK, you can't stand tobacco.

It will be your little pleasure next.

Sure as taxes!

Who really cares

...Who Pauline Hanson sells- or doesn't sell her house to?

It's her bloody house to sell to who she pleases.

Another frickin' non-news storm in a teacup...

Improvise, adapt, overcome.

Tui is drinkable if fortified with Jagmiester.

Did Cactus Kate make the Earth move again?

The latest wobble was in Taiwan.

But seriously- has anyone else noted that there are a hell of a lot of earthquakes happening at the moment? A magnitude seven near every day.

We can discount global warming and immodest women, so is this the earth getting ready to throw a really big one somewhere in the rim of fire?

Surprised nobody has been speculating in the dead-tree press.

Obviously nobody has handed them a press release on the subject...

Another MSM Fail

"...The blackout, which included the capital's central business district and eastern suburbs, lasted from 3.20pm to 4.30pm on Thursday and cut power to 84,000 customers.

Transpower spokeswoman Rebecca Wilson said contractors were working on a switched off "buf-bar" unit, and it appeared a lead from their electrical testing equipment was either dropped or blown by the wind onto a live buf-bar below it..."

(bold mine)

We have a spokeswoman who has been misquoted (probably) or knows jack-shit about all things electrical and/or yet another journo who can't be arsed even googling terminology.

You know- checking the FACTS of a story.

It's a friggin' BUS-BAR!

Too much aint enought!

Left to right- 700 nitro express, 4 bore, 2 bore!

I have to work these into one of my books. A T-Rex hunting expedition, perhaps.

My take on their Cunning Plan

Having made the public receptive by using taxpayer funded TV to illustrate the negatives of drinking and how it costs us all:

'Leak' the info that our beloved drink will go up by 50% (the tax anyway- which is a huge part of the cast)

Then when the real increase of 10-20% comes out at budget time, the sheeple will be all relieved that they didn't get hit as hard as they COULD have been.

And not get as outraged over the still huge increase as they would have...

Also, you may want to watch for other unpleasant surprises that this 'leak' is smoke-screening.

Can't fool ALL of us.

Just the dumb ones- however...

Softening the punters up

Over on Kiwiblog there is a 'leak' on a proposal to add supertax to alcohol.

Just before I heard this - it made the MSM- I was speculating about the motives behind the spate of programs regarding the effects of the demon drink!

There have been several in the last few days (I hear the TV while I'm working at the PC, lest you think I are watching state TV!)

As cash cows are seldom slaughtered, I guessed that we were being softened up for a big tax hike. Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Of course the thought hitting those who actually cause problems when in their cups would never occur to the powers-that-be. Such as CHARGING them the full cost of their medical misadventures, depuking cells and police cars & uniforms and so on.

No, just shaft the majority who enjoy a quiet drink- as always!

Be careful what you wish for

in·dig·e·nous (n-dj-ns)
1. Originating and living or occurring naturally in an area or environment. See Synonyms at native.
2. Intrinsic; innate.
[From Latin indigena, a native; see indigen.]

So NOBODY is indigenous to New Zealand.

NOBODY originated from here.

If you want to twist it to say those born here, that means the ALL of us that were born here whenever.

Which sort of makes the whole declaration pointless.

Just like the UN...

History repeating

Hat Tip: Touchstone's Jests

A lesson for ALL

"The majority of students use their student loans to get an education, then a job, but there needs to be more "respect for taxpayer funding", Prime Minister John Key says..."

A frickin' lesson ALL those who get their faces into the public trough need to pay heed to.

ESPECIALLY politicians!

'Respect for taxpayer funding' needs to be branded onto their foreheads!

How to cut drownings to zero

Just watching a National Geographic program on them. Does EVERYTHING in Africa want to stomp, eat,poison or bugger you?

Something else to ban

I'm waiting for one of the lunatic fringe to try and suggest banning this sort of thing.

Or taxing them.

Makes as much sense as the whole carbon trading rort.

The Great NZ Blame Game

"A drunken woman who died after lying in a drain for five hours may have been saved if an ambulance had reached her sooner, a coroner's report says.

Hastings Coroner Chris Devonport ruled that Mt Maunganui woman Tina Bernadette Peene, 50, died on July 12 last year of hypothermia caused by exposure while she lay in the drain in "atrocious" weather.

He found ambulance communication lapses could have contributed to delays in finding her.

St John Ambulance has acknowledged there was a misunderstanding between its communications centre and officers searching for Ms Peene over her exact location, and apologised..."

How does this happen to be the St Johns fault? I see bugger- all to apologise for!

Did they pour cheap gin down her throat and throw her in the friggin ditch?

Has the dork of a coroner ever tried to find somebody outside on a rainy night?

Are Ambulance Officers issued with a frickin' German Shepherd trained to sniff out hidden patients?

I call it death by drunken stupidity.

Some people 'get it'

I found this letter in the DomPost (more often known as the ComPost)

There IS intelligent life out there!

OPINION: I note an increasing call, in the interests of safety, to reduce car speeds to the point of not moving.

For 10 years now, I've driven the same route to work, past two schools. There has been a noticeable and disturbing change in the way crossings are managed.

Whereas children once were taught to stop, look and understand, and take responsibility for taking a step, it seems the new controlled-by- kids crossings have changed that. With the impending approach of pedestrians, the barriers go out, the effect being no requirement for any thought regarding road safety or personal responsibility.

In fact, the crossing has just become an extension of the footpath. That attitude seems to be becoming widespread and, as a pedestrian, I've watched others not even bother to look before stepping out. After all, they say, it's their right - given by nanny state in its mad dash to remove personal responsibility.

It seems a growing number of fools would step in front of a moving car; some die, some live, and probably no-one does it again.

The alarm bells just went off- big time.

"Children's aggressive behaviour will be monitored and measured in all of the nation's 2370 schools, if a new government proposal to curb the growing incidence of bullying goes ahead...

...Among the recommended techniques is a system that recruits students to secretly work "undercover" in their school, alongside a teacher, to fight bullying..."

(Bold Mine)

This is how it starts- it's always a 'good cause' and for the 'public good'.

How long before these immature 'agents' are reporting on home life?- stuff like what videos, book and other subversive material. Do the parents drink alcohol or smoke and how much. What kinds of food are being eaten. Does the old man yell at the kids? or walk about naked? What goes on next door...

YOU have been conditioned for this with the busy-bodies using underage kids in retail sting operations. The wedge is about to get driven in even deeper soon.

So many of these little upstarts already have the upper hand, knowing that all they have to do is SAY that you have given them a clip around the ear.

Remember Germany sixty-odd years back? Parents scared of being denounced by their kids?

Those who can't learn from history are destined to repeat it.

Beleated Birthday promo:

Both books are FREE until I change my mind!


Uncle Sammy wants 30% of my royalties, unless I complete one of his incomprehensible tax forms.

I have decided I will not be funding a corrupt 'administration' (fortunately I have a choice)

Is there a 'How to be a Wanker for Dummies' book?

I'm sure there is.

Many of these obnoxious twat that comment on subject on which they are profoundly ignorant couldn't find their own arse with both hands and a detailed map.

This really comes out when left-leaning soft-shells start commenting on military matters.

After what is usually an anti-american/anti Israeli attack, they wait until somebody who actually had a clue replies and start slandering them with cries of 'armchair general' or 'chickenhawk'.

Then if the person attacked responds with some credentials they are told that they are:

  • Plain lying
  • Not for real as real servicemen won't talk about their experiences. (Hmmm-So where did all those NON_FICTION books on war come from...)

Ain't the interweb great!

Try THAT mano-a-mano in the real world where you might have to back up the lies and slander.

Thought not...

Why buy an IPad?

One reason here

Books, they are a-changing!

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany

Than in Masterton Pak & Save!

Had a stand-up ding-dong with an old tart who got real uppity over one of my kids playing up.

Tried explaining that he is severely mentally hadicapped, but that was brushed off with 'he looks perfectly normal'

And then words were exchanged.

I'm told I was ahead on points...

The wife was a bit concerned that I would get banned from Pak & Save.

Imagine my concern at THAT!

Nailing Christians to bits of timber

For me, there are SO many others in dire need of nailing up, that I can't get enthusiastic about giving the common or garden christians grief. (the born-again variety is another matter!)

Plus, at the end of the day, I share a hell of a lot more values with them than with with many other groups.

Greenies, socialists, muslims, eco-fascists, tribalists- now THERE are targets for my bile!

They are in far more need of a sound kicking!

Nail some sense into THEM!

A cut above the usual

Some actual, real journalism!

Prison, the inside story

Typical holiday fuckwittery

When I used do do volunteer ambulance work, I used to dread long weekends with fine weather.

Invariably, someone would try and chop or chainsaw their foot off, fall off roofs or ladders or generally bust themselves.

Todays fun was a cretin that felled a tree on a 11kV line. I have spent the last six hours resetting motors and drives, bleeding pipes and generally hanging around waiting for the linesmen to get the repairs done. That's on top of a normal ten-hour day...

Now what are the odds he will get a bill for this?

Sorry- can't remember where I found this!

Never mind the crusher

These pregnant roller skates need dropping into a vat of molten steel WITH the cretins that try to use them on the open road!

60kph an a straight road in perfect conditions! FFS, a John Deere goes that speed!

Timid old Doris's that have to travel out of town should take the frickin' bus. There is no place for them on the open road.

At least the boy racers are in bed during the early afternoon!
