It would be a lot more effective to cut welfare and payments to the low life scum who hurt children than to cut jobs for decent patriotic military personnel. Great going Nats.
To say nothing of the WOFTAMs in the vary long list of departments that contribute 5/8 of FA to NZ...
There should be enough know-how in that list for a coup d'état...

They are both right and wrong. I did not describe an actual case- just a typical situation. But this situation is so bloody common, that a reader could easily think I was talking about people they personally knew.
This was part of my point- that this sad situation is so bloody common in New Zealand! There are THOUSANDS of Dumb Doris’s and Feckless Fred’s out there.
And there are even more who enable them by not speaking out. By not condemning the welfare trap, the rorting of the system, the mindless repetition of the cycle, as they breed a new flawed generation of welfare leeches.
Because they are too bloody soft, because reporting a crime is taboo, by the misplaced shielding of relatives- because of the whole PC ‘Thou shalt not JUDGE’ attitude.
We owe them nothing- THEY owe us.
To be honest.
To live within their means.
To not knowingly make their situations worse.
To lose the sense of entitlement.
To get themselves out of the mess they have created…
"The central Wellington bar offering horse semen shots has had to increase its stocks to deal with extra demand.
The apple-infuse semen shots are part of the Green Man pub's entry in the annual Monteith's Beer & Wild Food Challenge.
Co-owner Steve Drummond said massive worldwide interest in the virile vials has meant he is now ordering stock in litres..."
Apple flavored horse jizz. That makes the more unusual of my concoctions seem positively conservative.
I recall that many years ago, I won a contest to devise the most vile drink (with what we had on hand) The winner was a mixture of Dutch gin and coffee liquor. I wasn't at all nice.
Beats the hell out of apple-flavored horse come, mind.
This craze must be one of those 'fear factor' inspired things. FFS- apple-flavored schnapps is a bad enough idea in its own right...

"The name of a Parliamentary Service worker accused of theft and obtaining by deception has been suppressed.
The man appeared in Wellington District Court this morning.
The alleged victim is believed to have been an MP..."
Theft and obtaining by deception.
Basically what happens after every election.
Just lock them all up as soon as they have been elected. Best to be sure and it would save time...

The piece continues:
Vulnerable and unsupported teen parents and their children can face a multitude of disadvantages. New Zealand studies show that compared with women who had not become mothers by age 21, teen mothers are:
nine times more likely to have no qualifications
twice as likely to suffer from major depression
twice as likely to be substance dependent
three times more likely to be suicidal at times
and three times more likely to be dependent on a benefit.
Well this is refreshing. An acknowledgement that having babies very young is neither good for the mother nor the children.
But what would I put this unusual frankness down to?
Pleading on behalf of the Trust? They will always need more funding.
But the pleading highlights the way government handles the problem. Pour in more and more corrective resources.
Instead of saying, hang on a minute. This is avoidable. Why are the statistics so high? What has the welfare incentive got to do with it?
Health analysts have no problem grasping the concept of prevention. It is cheaper (and better for the patient) than treating disease.
In the social arena however the attitude seems to prevail that the high teenage birth rate is fait accompli, a cultural tradition even.
And as I re-read the article it strikes me, looking at the cover and the smiling faces, that this is published by the MSD as a good news story. Look at us. Look how well we are doing..."

The 36-year-old Featherston man was struck by a car at 6pm on Wednesday while hitchhiking north on State Highway 2 near Tauherenikau - the second time he's been hit in two years.
"I remember walking along and I usually turn when I see lights and put my thumb out then I don't know what happened," he said at Wairarapa Hospital yesterday where he was rushed by ambulance..."

"The initiators of a Facebook page dedicated to convincing a Wellington boys' college to let a student attend the school ball with a male date have taken the page down.
The Facebook 'event' originally called "Get Malcolm Pimentel and Keith Labad to the St Pat's Ball" captured headlines and attracted more than 12,000 supporters in 48 hours.
Although it didn't reach its goal of convincing Wellington's St Patrick's College to allow Malcolm to bring his friend former St Pat's student Keith Labad to the ball, the pair see their mission accomplished as the page had "inspired others who often remain silent to speak out"..."
This had bugger-all to do with ANY matter of principle.
IMNSHO, it was ALL about 'Look at ME' and 'I'm being controversial', by playing the PC discrimination card.
When these attention seeking brats do this, schools reap what they have sown...

"Corrections Minister Judith Collins wants to shut down Wellington's Mt Crawford Prison - which she called a disgrace.
Speaking at the weekend, Collins said prison officers did "their very best in very difficult, Dickensian situations"..."
All the cells have running water and flush toilets- along with power and heaters- exactly how is that 'Dickensian'?
Dickensian implies buckets to crap in, no heating, damp and vermin-infested. (aside from the two-legged variety, which sort of goes with being a prison)
Sure- it's old, drafty and ugly. it's a prison- not the friggin' Park Royal.
It was a much better place to work than the modern electronic-everything wings at Rimutaka.
And we did have a waiting list to get in!

Bennett ruled out making birth control compulsory for beneficiaries. And she said they would not be sterilised.
"I'm a big fan of ... They're called the LARC - long-acting reversible contraception. I don't think we're quite at compulsory sort of stages, but they're saying free.
"I don't live in a New Zealand that believes in sterilising people at all..."

"Police will be lowering their speed tolerance to 4kmh over the limit for all public holidays, starting this Queen's Birthday weekend.
"We believe that lowering the tolerance has made a real difference to the number of deaths on the roads over the holiday periods", national manager of road policing Superintendent Paula Rose said..."
OK, you are obsessed with the Great God Safety.
So why do the Wairarapa police turn a blind eye to REAL blatant road hazards in the district?
Namely, stock movements and agricultural machinery. Every day, I'm seeing stock all over the roads- most have no form of warning aside from shit all over the road- assuming you are going the same way. I'm not talking gravel back-roads, but on most of the main roads and highways.
Likewise, huge tractors and trailers are all over the road and they get a free pass- any truck carrying a load 100mm wider than the limit has wide load signs and day-glow flags all over it- plus a pilot vehicle.
I see the white & yellow tax collectors all over the main roads but NEVER have I seen a cockie pulled over. Even the bastards that all seem to drive those wooden-trayed utes at 70k on the open road...

Black Stump Bordeaux is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured Burgundy, whilst a good Sydney Syrup can rank with any of the world's best sugary wines.
Château Blue, too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.
Old Smokey 1968 has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian Wino Society thoroughly recommends a 1970 Coq du Rod Laver, which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: eight bottles of this and you're really finished. At the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.
Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.
Another good fighting wine is Melbourne Old-and-Yellow, which is particularly heavy and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.
Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.
Real emetic fans will also go for a Hobart Muddy, and a prize winning Cuivre Reserve Château Bottled Nuit San Wogga Wogga, which has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.
