My opinions on matters of the day that, generally, have pissed me off. Being described as a 'Surly Curmudgeon', by those who meet me on a good day, I have a poor regard for the human species. This is my place for my free speech- not bloody yours. Crap under your own rock.

Words of wisdom
It was on the funding of Parents Inc. - specifically on programs for teenagers about drugs, sex and that sort of thing.
A well-known presenter stated that "they received no government funding (yes, WE know that means TAXPAYER funds!) as they taught morality in schools. Fortunately, Pub Charity was very obliging- go figure!"
Indeed- go figure!
I'm talking about the foul practice of 'Trick or Treat' It 's begging- pure and simple.
I'm indifferent to the Halloween thing. If people want to waste more money at the warehouse- it's their money to fritter away. But keep it to yourselves- have a bloody Halloween party or suchlike.
That aside there is the other matter. For the other 364 days we teach our children not to take sweets from strangers. Why send them out to do exactly that?
Stupid, stupid, stupid!
I'm waiting for the day when somebody' s little scroungers come home with a bag of trips...

What does it take to bring back the death penalty?

Another Tui Ad
"Two white supremacist skinheads were arrested in Tennessee last week over plans to go on a killing spree and eventually shoot Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama..."
Here is a classic media beat-up.
They were as likely to knock off the Sock Puppet as they were to successfully hold up a gun shop. All piss and wind.
It's the sort of thing you hear in a pub most Friday knight, where someone get as skinful and is going to shoot (insert politician of choice] in the guts.
Like Joe the farm hand who is going to drop the governor-general for what the bastard said in 1954- any planning came out of a bottle.
They probably wouldn't be capable of picking up a few tips from a Tom Clancy novel (no pictures).
But of course the police have to work on possibilities, not probabilities.
The cynical might say that the timing was impeccable for a few sympathy votes. The evil right tries to knock off the new prophet.
However, I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence...
Coming here soon?
How long before the Fingermen bring this law into play?
For your own good of course...

Looking at the Big Sky
But there is a serious side here. I follow a few favorite UK blogs. Why- we follow the UK like we are joined at the hip with a 10 year long chain. Their current lunacy will be our own- if we sit on our hands and let it. I don't want us to let it!
Here are a couple of crystal ball sites:
The Devil's Kitchen
Obnoxio the Clown
Last of the Few
The Magistrates Blog
Nanny Knows Best
Let's not go there- I'm getting too old for armed insurrection...

As usual, we called into Lindale
The boys like like the farmyard thing (like they have never seen a farm before) Of course there the farmyard animal like climbing all over the visitors- unlike the other way around further north.
A close second to the farmyard was the sweet shop- probably because we failed to mention that until after the farmyard. I did not want to watch devouring beasts of the field and ravenous boys fight to the death over sugar. It gets bad enough with those foul-smelling feed pellets they sell you to feed their stock!
The sweet shop had a selection of pogey bait from the past- huge gobstoppers and lolly pops big enough to give a Greenie apoplexy. I brought a bag of Irish Moss flavoured sweets that I haven't seen since my grandmother smoked herself to death. The boys got red liquorice and a bag of 'Huhu bugs'. 'Er indoors' got chocolate covered coffee beans and I got to pick up the tab.
The Kapiti cheese and icecream shop was impressive and my compliments to the young lad who ran about helping the horde of customers while two useless girls ignored the crowds trying to hand money across the counter.
The icecream was very good- although they will never reach the lofty standards set by Rush Munroe.
The cheeses are currently being nibbled away. I picked the inevitable Kikorangi along with an Awa strong blue, Harvarti creamy smoked and a Camembert with pesto. Served with Crostini, anchovy-stuffed olives, salami, pickled walnuts and gerkins.
A good port on the side, of course!

Here kitty, kitty, kitty
People Eating Tasty Animals!
These limp-dicks have come up with this bit of fuckwittery.
If we call fish 'Sea Kittens', people will stop wanting to catch or eat them.
Lights on, nobody home...
Quite free from the ravages of intelligence...
Every time a cop shoots somebody a pack of wankstains come out of the closet, spewing forth on a subject they know zero about.
- Point a firearm, an airgun or a replica at police- expect to die.
- Point a pointed stick or anything that may vaguely look like a firearm at police (in bad light)-expect to die.
- This is not a rifle range. The target moves, so shooting at shoulders or knees is not an option.
- People die from being shot in knees or shoulders. John Wayne never heard of hypovolemic shock, but everyone outside Hollywood is subject to it.
- Bushmaster rifles don't have 'high-powered telescopes' on them.
- The 'second chance' is given when the offender is ordered to put down the weapon.
- The policeman who pulls the trigger will be subjected to a witch hunt the likes of which you cannot comprehend- and he knows this.
- Replica or airguns cannot be distinguished from the real thing at a distance- and in a fraction of a second. Would YOU bet your life that it ain't a real Glock?
- Were YOU sticking YOUR wide arse on the line that day?
- Have you EVER put your wide arse on the line?
- Would YOU rush somebody who may or may not have a loaded firearm- and is mentally unbalanced?
Ask Sergeant Don Wilkinson for an opinion about taking on an assailant armed with 'Only an airgun'
That would be a bit hard now, wouldn't it...

Suicide- the censored killer
This is in a town of 2500.
Note that there are no links- that's because you won't find anything in the MSM. Apparently they have some sort of a political understanding- driven by an MP who would rather not hear the word SUICIDE.
It's not a nice word. Nor are RAPE, MURDER, MOLESTATION, INCEST, PEDOPHILIA OR TORTURE.
But they happen- and happen here. Will they go away if we do not name these sins?
Like hell- silence is a prerequisite for evil unchecked.
It's fairly clear that these things need to be exposed, condemned and prevented where possible.
The MSM's voluntary silence on suicide is one more reason proving that they cannot be trusted with a position of any relevance in this world.
Somebody from the DomPost seems to have read this!

They both need the shit slapped out of them!
This is the loony tune UK, but could easily be the case here!
"Teenager Sam Holt's behaviour would leave most parents in despair - drinking, smoking, taking drugs and having sex.
But the 13-year-old's mother thinks it is 'sweet' rather than shocking.
Tracy Holt even rewards her daughter with cigarettes on the rare occasions when she does behave...
Miss Holt, 43, knows Sam drinks but is just relieved that it's not more than a couple of cans of lager a night.
And she decided not to get angry about her daughter losing her virginity at 12, instead insisting that Sam uses contraception.
Miss Holt, a jobless single mother with two other adult children, told Closer magazine: 'I don't see the point in punishing her.
'If I ground her, I'm just punishing myself because I have to put up with her in the house. Instead, I reward her good behaviour by giving her cigarettes. If she's bad, she goes without.
'She's a little comedian. I let her get away with a lot of cheek. It's sweet.'
Giving out cigarettes as a reward 'works', she insisted.
Miss Holt said: 'There are a lot worse things she could be doing..."
OK, so now you see why some are the way they are!
Useless bludging slut begats another useless bludging slut!
She thinks her daughters behaviour is 'cute'
I don't. That's because people like myself are the ones who are forced to pick up the tab- at the expense of OUR families.
No doubt this little tart will have whelped a litter of little bastards to an assortment of anonymous sperm-donors before too long.
And the cycle continues.
I am now of the view that EVERY person who lives on a taxpayer funded benefit shall be required to be fitted with a contraceptive implant as a condition to receiving ANY benefit. (with the exception of the pension ;-)
Any person on a benefit for more than two years shall be given the option of sterilization, with a two thousand dollar one-off payment. Failure to take up this offer means that their benefit is frozen. No more increases for more brats or CPI adjustments!

Taking out the Trash
I'm a great supporter of this.
Everybody knows that a hell of a lot of crime is committed by a very small proportion of people. This is really obvious in a small town!
As well as and alongside gangs, there are many well-known families associated with recidivist lifestyles. These scum are pure and simple parasites. They do nothing but take from decent society. THEY need to be policed to the full extent of the law.
Their cars stopped, checked and searched on a very regular basis. The same with their homes. Any bail conditions are constantly monitored. Every time one of them spits on the footpath they are arrested.
This needs to be carried out thoroughly, regularly and without letup. I continues regardless of them leaving town. It carries on until they get the message and straighten up.
The naysyers reckon it won't stop them- they won't/can't learn. Too bad. It's much harder to commit crimes when the police are continually watching.
In my book 'Human Rights' are lost when you choose to live outside decent society- and demonstrate this on a continual basis.
This lot could have used a bit of this treatment. I wonder if they would have qualified for 'special attention'...

A tale of two families
It is a story which crystalises the dubious values encouraged by the British welfare state.
While hardworking Sean and Anne Tate scrimp to afford a few little luxuries for their ten children on his £15,000 lorry driver's salary, a family of the same size two miles away take things a little easier.
Harry Crompton, 50, has been out of work for 15 years and his wife Tracey, 40, has never had a job.
A tale of two families: Anne Tate, above with nine of her ten children, says her family 'would never scrounge' while Harry and Tracey Crompton, below with nine of their children, take £32,000 benefits
Yet thanks to the generosity of the welfare state they receive £32,656 a year. The Cromptons have been nicknamed 'Britain's Biggest Freeloaders' by their neighbours in Hull.
Mrs Tate, 43, a stay-at-home mother, could barely believe what she was reading when she saw media coverage of the Cromptons' situation earlier this week.
'I am absolutely furious,' she said. 'The Government want shooting for allowing people to get away with scrounging like this.
'We have worked hard all our lives to provide for our kids, and when you see families like this it makes you wonder why you bother.
'But we have pride in ourselves and would never scrounge like this family. It makes me sick. Gas, water, electricity, council tax has all gone up – we don't get any help with that.'
The Tates bought their three-bedroom house from the council four years ago and built an extension with two extra bedrooms.
The Cromptons, by contrast, were provided with two semis knocked together by the council at a cost of £20,000.
The couple's only income from paid work is £20 a week from eldest son Michael, who has a factory job.
Tracey and Harry Crompton have bought £3,000 of Christmas presents already with their benefit money
They receive a further £628 a week in income support, disability allowance, carer's allowance, child tax credit, plus £120 a week rent on their seven-bedroom house.
A working parent would have to earn £46,500 a year to match their income. The only state handouts the Tates receive is child benefit – which is available to all parents regardless of how much they earn.
Life is cramped to say the least in their home in Hull's Bransholme district. Michael, 23, has moved out, but Gary, 20, Leanne, 18, Brandon, 12, Shaunnah, 11, Mercedes Rose, seven, triplets Madison Rae, Porschia Lillie and Poppie Marie, five, and Jayden, three, still live there.
Over at the Cromptons', the walls are dirty and the floor is covered in videos and magazines. Mrs Crompton says she 'doesn't have much time for cleaning'.
The Tates' home and garden are immaculate. Mr Tate, 44, recently installed a new kitchen and designed and built a new marble fireplace in the living room.
Mrs Tate said: 'You don't have to live like a tramp. People think you do if you have big family. Everything we have got you work hard for and look after.
'There is a lot of love in any house. In our house. because there are more of us, it goes around.
'We have a lot of fun. We always have a house-full and the children bring their friends as well.'
The Cromptons seem to be less happy with their lot. Earlier this week Mrs Crompton said she would have to be 'very well paid' to make it worth her while getting a job.
She added: 'I'm not satisfied with the benefits we get – I want more.'

Crime & election promises
A lawyer is generally as reluctant to offer this advice as a Frenchman who lives next door to a brothel is to move house.
These is a great reluctance to delay and risk being sentenced under a National government who has passed 'Stay in jail until you rot, you bastards' legislation.

Pull your bloody fingers out!
More effort needed over Kiwi kids in poverty
"A national effort is needed to lift up the roughly one-fifth of New Zealand children living in poverty, Barnados NZ said ahead of World Day for the Eradication of Poverty tomorrow.
The majority of poor people in New Zealand were children, with 230,000 or 22 per cent living in poverty, Barnados chief executive Murray Edridge said..."
Yes, more effort is needed.
By their bloody parents!
More so when it involves a particularly nasty murder. The second one here in recent times.
The locals are NOT HAPPY that two of those arrested are out on bail!
'Youth' be damned. They should be remanded in custody.
A man is dead...

Now we know why they brought a busted railway!
Mrs Turia said she wanted the next government to return to subsidised "make-work" schemes where people get a community job and are paid a government wage.
"What we need is the government to make work, to get our people back into a strong work ethic."
So there we go! A return to the days of snailways, Post Office, Ministry of Works and the horrendous featherbedding, pillaging and general incompetence that used to occur. Was Cullen in cahoots with the Maori party, when he brought his busted Thomas the Tank Engine set?
I offer another solution:
All the rubbish of NZ is delivered to a couple of sites. The long-term unemployed are sent to camps there to recycle this rubbish. They receive minimum wage once they make their quotas for recovered recyclables.
How Green is that!

Sorry- your reality cheque just bounced!
Look at the target market- they either:
- Already vote Liarbore or Green
- Have grown up already and wouldn't give Liarbore or the Greens the steam of their piss.
The only ones left are swinging voters on decent incomes who want somebody else to pay for their brat's education. Heaven forbid their offspring should have to study AND work part-time.
Whaleoil has a Stuff poll that confirms this.
Big deal, so what?
I have one word to say:
Space cadet newsflash!
Hmmm- every day I'm meeting people who I'm sure come from a place where the sky is a different colour...

They would be right...
"...Mr Irons also said he was happy the arrests were made but was concerned that, given two of the alleged attackers ages, they might get off too lightly.
"I'm pleased they got someone & but those little bastards will get off with nothing..."The bastards (which in all probability is an accurate description) arrested are aged 15, 17 and 25. One will get the wet bus ticket, another a holiday in the Youth unit, playing with taxpayer funded playstations and the older scrote will get a hopelessly inadequate sentence in what passes for a prison in NZ.
The victim survived, against the odds but the outlook for the future is not good. That won't count for much in the sentencing. As they failed to kill him, despite clear intent otherwise- it will out out with the wet bus ticket.
Going by local talk, this looks to be a random attack, these shitheads were apparently 'out to beat someone up'
Are these the sort of people who deserve another chance? I'm betting they are no strangers to the courts.
Think about the various law & order policies before you vote next month.
Now it's murder. What do YOU think the guilty parties should receive?

it was horrible!
That being pack & save with children.
The human equivalent of being a frog on the suction side of a 55 KvA pump.
Quite literally as you attempt to maneuver between laden trolleys navigated by she- mountains who function like the blast doors on star wars I.
My six-year-old , like Han Solo, reminds me to never consider the odds, as we charge towards the ice-cream freezer, avoiding the asteroid fields of the geriatric chat-club that seems to reside there.
This would be easier/more enjoyable if my trolley had the sort of firepower that was a part of the Millennium Falcon!
An if Jabba the Hut's cuzzies shopped elsewhere....
It is NEVER right to lie in a court of law- or in any time especially in a part of the legal process!
Would it be right because a cop lies on a speeding charge 'because it was in the public interest'?
Absolutely not- even when the PM is in the car!- ESPECIALLY when she is in the car!
TO try and justify LYING is CORRUPTION!- nothing less.
Want to know pain?- vote for this twat!
"When feisty Levin baker Raewyn Gardiner turned up the heat on a gun-toting cake thief, he knew it was time to get out of the kitchen.
The 57-year-old grabbed him by the shirt and held a knife to his face after finding him with a handful of her cookies and cakes - tasty goods she says are "to die for..."
That lady deserves a DB!
It's a shame she didn't fillet the scumbag, but with what passes for justice in NZ, they would be throwing all the resources of the SState against her!

There is nowhere in NZ that is not at risk from being flattened by an earthquake. You get that living on a plate boundary!
Personally, my family is very well set up for a major event. Based on information I have got from involvement with several agencies, I geared up for three weeks plus- not three days. That estimate is pure optimism in the case of a major earthquake.
Certainly, those of us living in small rural towns would most likely be fending for ourselves as the bulk of outside resources are poured into the major cities. Unlike the townies we saw on tv, we have things like firewood supplies, experience at living outdoors and a bit of foraging is a way of life. Try potting a few rabbits for dinner in downtown Wellington!
Living in NZ, it's impossible to plead ignorance, should you be caught for your pants down in a disaster. You won't find any sympathy around here!
But I'm well enough set up to provide a feed for somebody who has no food.
Once they have payed their way splitting firewood, hauling water or digging a new dunny!

The only surgery a thief should be getting is a cheap amputation.

Lotto dreams can have a downside
But though a $24 million Lotto payout sounds good, the sudden influx of cash can turn reality into a nightmare and becoming a millionaire overnight can leave winners disgruntled, a psychologist says..."
I'm willing to take that chance!"...Lotteries spokeswoman Karen Jones said yesterday that a lot of people did not understand the planning required, long after the winning numbers have been circled. "With large sums of money comes large amounts of responsibility," she said..."
Great responsibility??? I thought with large sums of money came hot bitches!
I think she may have watched X-Men once too often!

Let the little brats learn what's coming up later in life- they can have four weeks at Christmas and stat days.
Whinging bloody teachers need to learn what a year's work is all about too!
Hell, in place of the continual breaks they have now, the kids could have a 'sports week' where there is no classwork, just physical activity.
Every holiday we have a spate of vandalism about town. Today it was half the windows at a swimming pool smashed out and the other pool broken into, along with a whole lot of senseless damage to the parks & gardens.
A sort of PD for little shits that like to bust stuff up is one idea of mine. PD that involves the separating and sorting of recyclables at the local dump. Dirty and less than pleasant work, outside in the weather.
Holidays sorting beer bottles by colour might discourage them from breaking them on the road!

One of lifes questions
Then gets upset when you tell them to fuck off!
NOBODY interrupts 'The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald'!
Cactus Kate calls it right again!
"...Annual New Zealand Police statistics published yesterday, show that in the 2007/2008 year to June Wairarapa had 1043 recorded crimes for every 10,000 people followed closely by Lower Hutt at 1041. Kapiti-Mana had the least at 819..."
I'm sure she won't be visiting Lower Hutt any time soon either!
What can you stay about a town that about 25% of Rimutaka Prison calls Home?
I lay much of the blame on Trust House for providing cheap housing for the undeserving- they brought up when most of the state houses were flicked off.
It's what I call 'Feeding Pigeons'
You feed the friggin' things- they breed like crazy and then they and their offspring flap about crapping all over you.
DON'T FEED THE PIGEONS!
* in no way does this apply to the outlying parts of the Wairarapa, especially Morrisville and Featherston
