At your target in front...

"Suspended Hato Paora College principal Elvis Dobson Shepherd has been found guilty of sexually abusing students at an Auckland school in the early 1990s..."

Yes, yet another...

Free Market

Fuck me!- its CMOT Dibbler!

We have crossover from the Discworld!

Bipolar NZ

In the world I live in- dominated by real men and a few women- doing all the stuff actually needed to make a country work- there is nothing but contempt for the bludgers along for a free ride.

But the trouble is that these folks are so busy keeping the world going round, they have no time-or interest- in changing which direction it spins.

THAT is governed by a class who are NOT bothered by the burden of meaningful work.

And the good people who matter have been brainwashed to believing that politics are distasteful and beneath then (the current system IS)

Politics are so far from the folks actually growing the food, making the power flow and keeping the roads open, that the politicians might as well be living in frickin' Narnia! (make your own observations about coming out of closets)

We need to get away from elections and move to gallows.

The people that matter are the only ones that know how to use a hammer and nails anyway...

Pot- kettle

"The Labour Party is concerned that ousted MP Chris Carter has become unbalanced, senior party figure Trevor Mallard says..."

That would be like the micky's throwing out a priest who took mass!

Feck- Liarbour are all barking! (along with most of the Nats and the others!)

Who you gonna call?

"Christchurch's newest team of ghostbusters is ready for paranormal action.

The new group, dubbed Christchurch Paranormal Investigators, was set up by Anton Heyrick who has been on the trail of apparitions for 10 years with various groups..."

The team are quietly confident that with good funding and time they WILL eventually find traces of intelligent life in the Village of the Damned!

Solutions are simple but unpalatable

SO- what would stop SO MANY children being murdered?

Stop funding the breeding of unwanted children.

Despite funding girls to 'care' for their offspring full-time, they consistently fail at their duty in numbers too large to be ignored. I call them girls because they do not understand that which a woman does. Your 'needs' come second to your children's.

Much, if not most of the problem would be the feckless male refuse they attract. These losers are attracted by sex, a roof over their heads and someone who get more taxpayer funding than he does to mooch off. At best they have no interest in another male's offspring. At worst, he is a loose cannon with a cracked barrel, as far as the kids are concerned.

I look at the town degenerates that hang around the scrubbers loafing on the DPB in our street. I hear their fighting and drunken/drugged carry-ons and know that it is just a matter of time there...

So WHY the gap?

"The wage gap between New Zealand and Australian workers has widened by $40 to $580 a week since National came to power in late 2008 promising to address the income gap..."

For one, they don't get the vapors at the thought of digging the place up for minerals.

Plus I suspect they have a better ratio of workers to wastrels.

More consistancy

One thing missing from the otherwise fair drink-driving penalties.

Stepped fines and penalties or how much offenders are over the limit- like they do with speeding.

And I believe the limit should stay where it is for now. Before reducing it I would like to see PROOF that between 0.5 and 0.8 is a problem that warrants change.

(Personally, my guidelines are one drink- that's it)

Experiment Three

NZDF medal 'progress'

UPDATE - 19 MAY 2010

"The Government is considering the Medallic Recognition Joint Working Group's report on the proposed NZDF Medal.

The NZDF is NOT currently accepting applications for the planned New Zealand Defence Force Medal. It is anticipated that a call for applications will happen in the second half of 2010.

It will take approximately 20 to 22 weeks from when a decision is made by the Government, before any medals are available to be issued. There will need to be a tender process for the manufacturer(s), and then the medal and ribbon will still need to be manufactured.

The NZDF Medals Office expects a large number of people to apply for the medal and, even with extra staff to process the applications, this could potentially be a two to three year project."

You people work like old people fuck!

How many friggin' years does this have to take? You pricks can vote yourselves a pay rise in a few nanoseconds.

Are you waiting for a few more of us to friggin' die?

It is a national embarrassment to turn out to an ANZAC day parade and the only ones NOT wearing a medal are the ex-bloody servicemen! Firemen, Cops- yep they all have them (and deserved, don't get that wrong) Soldiers- forget it.

Every damned thing in the service needed doing the day before, so is it too much to ask for a bit of hurry-up on this?


The NZDF site has issued an update today that is exactly the same as the one I posted in May!

OI!- Wayne Mapp!- light a fire under these idle fuckers!

News flash- man leaves bar pissed

"A Wellington RSA has been banned from selling alcohol for a day after one of its members got drunk at the club and was caught drink-driving at nearly four times the legal limit..."

Slow new day, huh?

Everyone knows that driving pissed is a bad thing. That is not the issue here.

If there were any consistency in policing, EVERY drunk picked up in town who had come from a bar should result in a prosecution for that bar. [insert Tui ad here]

If all bars lost a day's trading for every drunk that staggered out the door- you would have a hard time finding a bar open at all.

It isn't even happening with people convicted for drink-related offences in other cases.

Why single out the Tawa RSA all of a sudden?

Some copper get their membership application blackballed?

Behind the times as usual

Given that I never get to the pictures, refuse to listen to what is hot and trendy and only buy the DVDs when they are at knockdown prices, I would be possibly the worlds slowest movie reviewer.

Yesterday I finally got a couple of hours between jobs and got to watch the copy of District 9 that I brought about a month ago.

At last!

Something quite fresh and new and not a freaking remake or sequel.

Lots of good splatter and effects- not for the kiddies like the R16 rating implies.

I hate to spoil a story by actually giving away any details (plus that would involve an effort on my part) so I won't.

It's a good, gritty fast paced action sci-fi- think shades of ET and Blackhawk Down crossed with Naked Lunch!

Well worth the $15 buck at the red shed and buying a copy might get Peter Jackson nearing to affording a local hanger for his new jet!

Fair Trade stuff

"...Fair trade bananas are flying off Moore Wilson's shelves in Masterton despite Oxfam warning demand needs to pick up or New Zealand may lose the ethical fruit..."

Another piece of 'feel good' marketing.

Of course 'Fair Trade' only works for overseas produce.

The buying practices of the supermarket chains here are conveniently ignored.

The bleeding hearts couldn't give a stuff about NZ growers- who get screwed over just the same as the foreign ones!

Crystal Ball gazing

Dumb and the other one

"An energy company has been forced to compensate a Wellington apartment owner after a meter reader defecated in a plastic bag while at the man's flat and left it there.

The Electricity and Gas Complaints Commissioner has told Genesis Energy to pay $800 to Errol Anderson, after the incident last September. However, Mr Anderson says the compensation is insufficient, as he cannot rent the apartment out until the "stigma" of what happened has faded..."

I would say $800 for finding a bag of crap on your doorstep should take away one's angst. Asking $200k is about as dumb as the clown who crapped in the bag (pleading desperation) and then left it there.

I personally know of a similar case of a jar of urine being left in a ceiling space. Again the offender was too dumb/lazy to simply remove the jar and dispose of it and the contents.

Shit happens...

What are you saying here?

"...Thirty-eight people charged with unlawful assembly should be seen by the same judge on the same day, a Christchurch judge says.

In the Christchurch District Court yesterday, the first seven people appeared before Judge Stephen Erber.

Each of the 38 is charged with unlawful assembly relating to a gathering of 39 revving cars and 140 people at Chaneys, Belfast, just after midnight on July 10.

Police had planned to drip-feed those charged through the court to avoid clogging the system.

However, the judge took a different view yesterday, saying all 38 should be seen on the same day by the same judge to achieve consistent penalties..."

SO have them ALL flogged to within an inch of their lives!

That aside, is the beak suggesting that our highly paid and above reproach judiciary are NOT consistent?

Gosh, who would have thought!

Day by Day needs our help

Minging old farts and Entitleitis

"...Nine party-goers dined for lunch at Robbie's Bar and Bistro to celebrate a Nelson woman's 70th birthday. The celebration turned to disbelief when they where told they could not bring in the birthday cake, baked as a present, without a $12 "cutting fee".

"I couldn't believe it," cake-baker June Thompson said. "I was actually gutted because I thought, 'that's a heck of a charge on top of making the cake'..."


Ever here of corkage for BYO- same thing.

A perfectly reasonable charge for staff's time for serving, cleaning plates and forks and more importantly- for the use of the venue.

Less than $1.50 a head is a 'heck of a charge'?

Stick to stewed tea and stale biscuits in one of your unheated state houses!

Cool space stuff

Over Here

All the real news that never makes the news!

Let's have the whole story

"Proposed Government moves to cut council costs will put lives "at risk", a senior Canterbury medical officer says....

...The board has drawn parallels with the cost-cutting of Canada's Ontario government in the late 1990s that led to seven drinking water-related deaths in 2000.

"You're putting lives in the community at risk," Canterbury medical officer of health Dr Alistair Humphrey told The Press yesterday.

"If people do lose their lives, the costs of addressing that are far higher than the money you'll save..."

The Walkerton incident is a case study used in water treatment industry training.

The series of failures leading to the incident were not cost cutting- they were the result of willful negligence and a cover-up on the parts of those concerned.

News flash

Saw a convoy of cops heading north up SH1 at speed about an hour ago and they were loaded for bear.

Wonder if this is anything to do with the Fielding murder a few days ago?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Why would you NOT

I cannot understand the procrastinating about arming the police.

I can see no reason that they should NOT be armed. To go about unarmed, they fail in their duty to protect the public.

Remember that- used to happen before they became the uniformed branch of the IRD. They existed to protect the law-abiding and make the lives of those who chose to live outside the law difficult.

Every crim everywhere SHOULD expect an armed response!

For the cops to chickenshit to pick up a weapon- we have the making of the all new old Traffic Department.

To the politicians who piss about and let cops AND VOTERS die- give us the power to defend our own lives.

We can't hide behind our own personal armed diplomatic protection squad- like you craven swine!

Merry Christmas Ted!

Arse biscuit!

Party politics aside

"...East Timor's parliament has resoundingly rejected Australian prime minister Julia Gillard's proposal for a refugee processing centre in the country..."

Feckin' ingrates~ cut off ALL aid immediately!

SO true!

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the
wealthy out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must
work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government
does not first take from somebody else.

4. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work
because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the
other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because
somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear
friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

5. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Away from the interlink

No broadband here.
Not a lot of electricity for that matter!

"...Fight the Obesity Epidemic spokeswoman Dr Robyn Toomath said the Government had barely acknowledged obesity as an issue. It had increased funding for Kiwisport in schools, but there was no evidence that participation in sport affected obesity levels.

Widespread discrimination against obese people meant there was no public outcry that nothing was being done. "It must be a prejudicial view that you have brought it on yourself, and that's a nonsense," she said..."

I'm calling 'bullshit' on this one.

NOBODY forced you to eat. When your fat arse got too wide for your clothes- THEN was when you got the warning sign to change your ways.

Never mind you THOUGHT you were eating right. You were wrong.

Research- learn a bit about diet and nutrition and amend your ways.

or chose not to- it's YOUR choice.

And YOUR consequences to live with.

Another minus five night forecast

I'm glad I spent a day cutting Manuka last year. If this global warming continues, I think I will buy a bigger chainsaw. There is a lot of free wood about if you know where to look.

On Tuesday it's off into the Tararuas for a night or two and I think it may be a little colder than minus five up there. Glad I liberated that high-spec sleeping bag many years ago.

My research into alternative fuel is coming along nicely. Those soft drink bottles burn very well when you have the fire box good & hot!

Almost as good as coal!

Saturday, July 10, 2010

The alternative being?

"Last Sunday [4 July] air quality in the Wairarapa failed to meet the national standard for the fourth time this winter.

Greater Wellington’s Masterton air quality monitoring station measured 57 micrograms per cubic metre (57 µg/m3) of fine particles (PM10) in the air – that’s 7 µg/m3 over the national standard threshold of 50 µg/m3. Exposure to PM10 is linked to adverse health effects including respiratory problems.

“In each of the four high pollution nights, the cause can be attributed to the combination of smoke from domestic wood burners and the weather – pollution usually builds up overnight during still and cold conditions,” says Greater Wellington’s Ted Taylor, Manager, Environmental Monitoring and Investigations..."

So frickin' what?

It's frickin' freezing and everyone who has one has the fire going.

If you want to see health problems, ban the bloody fires and watch the respiratory illness admissions take off. Far more than you get from breathing a bit of woodsmoke. This is the dishonesty of this greenie hype- they fail to mention the cost of NOT using wood to heat homes.

I use a heatpump for a few hours in the morning, but get nothing like the warmth from my logburner. I would need three heatpumps to get the same output and I'm already paying about $100 a month to run the one I have.

Also, when the 'pollution' outside is high- people are INSIDE trying to stay warm.

"BREAKING NEWS: Rugby World Cup Minister Murray McCully is poised to axe controversial rugby ambassador Andy Haden.

In a strongly-worded statement, Mr McCully said he would be meeting Mr Haden this afternoon over comments he made about rape and rugby players on Sky Television on Wednesday night..."

Rugby world cup minister- now there is someone who needs to be made redundant. OK- he IS redundant- now he needs to be removed from the trough.

What a load of twadle- expecting a rugby head to be PC. What next- vegetarian tigers at the Wellington zoo?

A new word


A person who discriminates against or dislikes other cultures.

'Oswald is an unashamed culturist.'

Racist is so misused that I came up with this new term. It fits a lot better!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010


It's a different world to the one that welcomed all-comers with open arms- the young USA and:

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Those days are gone. It's a very different world now.

In those days the immigrant had to fit in and scratch for a living. Their new home and hope had no safety net- or the snare of- welfare. They got their heads down and worked hard to make a living.

Not anymore- and THIS is reason one as to why we cannot afford to take all-comers now. This is why they MUST apply and should only be permitted entry if they will not be a drain. We already have too much deadwood. We live in a welfare state- I don't like it, a thousand libertarians don't like it and I suspect quite a few others don't, either.

Unfortunately, we are stuck with this welfare black hole and the best we can do is to lobby to manage it. We need more immigrants on the dole like we need more revisionist history professors in our universities.

One way is to only allow immigrants who will be a net gain as soon as they land here.

Then there are the illegals.

They want to bypass the screening system, usually by emotional blackmail- often in the form of a leaky boat or by claiming to belong to some persecuted group. Surely there is empty land in Africa for them. I can't see any place here.

Finally- the colonists- they are not here to join our society. They are here to take over, make no mistake about that and they will play on our PC-faux guilt-tripping for all it is worth. If you don't believe me, spend some time reading the UK blogs.

Won't SOMEBODY think of the children?

School principals say measures should be put in place to make it difficult for teenagers to buy pointed sticks, similar to rules restricting the purchase of spraycans.

The Principals Association welcomed moves to help them search pupils for weapons.

Justice Minister Simon Power has announced proposals to help deal with a rise in pointed stick-carrying. These included increasing the sentence for possessing an offensive weapon from two to three years and a voluntary accord with pointed stick sellers to help restrict sales to teenagers.

In my day, almost everybody from the age of about eight years and up carried a pointed stick. Pointed sticks have thousands of practical applications other than sticking into people.

We knew it was a bad idea to poke somebody with a pointed stick and that the consequences (remember those) would be on the harsh side of severe. So we didn't do it.

I often dreamed of actually buying a pointed stick, but being poor had to fashion my own out of stuff found in sheds. Or use one of the ones found lying about in every house.

And although we were often cautioned by our mothers, almost nobody put an eye out!

Another trougher

LATEST: The Law Society has asked to strike off controversial lawyer Chris Comeskey after he pleaded guilty to three counts of professional misconduct.

Comeskey changed his position when the Lawyers and Conveyancers Disciplinary Tribunal reconvened this afternoon.

He pleaded guilty to one charge of failing to act appropriately for a client, one charge of misleading the Court of Appeal and one charge of submitting a false invoice to legal aid.

John Billington, QC, for the New Zealand Law Society, told the tribunal the charges were serious and the society was asking for Comeskey to be struck off.

It can be no co-incidence that there are so many lawyers in politics...

When you sell a palm mobile or suchlike CRAMMED with sensitive personal information- it is a REALLY GOOD IDEA to do a factory reset when selling it.

You might sell it to somebody who does not respect privacy and LOVES to pass such stories to the media.

Fortunately, I am not one of them.

Any media types can kiss my arse- this is as far as this story goes. You would have loved it as it was a serious national news one.

Eat shit and die you pricks

"Kiwibank is calling for compulsory KiwiSaver membership, a tightening of rules around disclosure by KiwiSaver providers, and more incentives for savings...

Yes, you would say that.

Not content with having OUR tax money to play banks with, you want your stinking hands even further into OUR pockets.

"Social Development Minister Paula Bennett was grilled by teenage parents over early-childhood centre funding cuts during a visit to North Canterbury.

Bennett yesterday visited Kaiapoi's Karanga Mai, a school for young parents, where pupils questioned a $17,000 funding cut to the school's early-childhood centre..."

More entitlitis here. These people fucked up their lives through dumb choices, then complain because they don't get the gold-plated option.

"...The Government's Budget cuts involve replacing the top two funding rates for centres employing more than 80 per cent of qualified teachers with a single lower rate..."

So some of the teachers are not fully qualified. they probably know more than the genius student that came out with:

"...Karanga Mai pupil Tracey Andrews said the cuts were "ridiculous" and that each centre should be judged on individual need.

She felt her child's safety would be compromised if left in the care of an untrained teacher.

"Say a child is choking, and there's no-one else around, if that [untrained] person doesn't know CPR, that's that kid gone just because they weren't trained," she said..."

I suppose that according to that a fully trained doctor should be in the room at all times!

Be thankful the TAXPAYERS are supporting you and your bastard offspring at all!
