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.

Something on your mind?
Two die on roads
"A young man has been killed after he fell from a car and it ran him over on a beach near Tauranga early this morning.
The 22-year-old local man had been riding on the outside of the car on Omanu beach in Mount Maunganui about 1am, Senior Sergeant Carl Purcell of Tauranga police said..."
It was a beach- NOT a road.
If the MSM can't get the little things right- how can we trust them with the big stories?
oh!- thats right....
Camping is self-delusion
A call of nature means a walk across stony or wet ground- or keep a wide-necked container in the tent (forbidden by she-who-must-be-obeyed)
You live on a diet of small sausages in spagettii, packet noodles fish & chips and beer. That's the good part.
But the more beer you drink means more walking across the stony ground. Every time you get up to visit the facilities means the air bed moves and you get berated by the other person for waking her up due to your Warehouse bladder.
Everone for 100 meters around can hear you loudly break wind- something that happens often due to the diet of fish & chips, packet noodles and little sausages in watery spagettii washed down with vast quantities of VB.
Ten minutes after you get back to a semi-destroyed house (the previous packing efforts) you have convinced yourself that you miss it and want to go away next weekend...

I had to take a look as the crazy thing had put one of MY replies into moderation!
I'm off camping for a couple of nights if it stops raining, so it will go quiet here until Sunday.
I refuse to take the laptop camping!

The perennial summer rant
I have just been reading about yet another bludging bastard over at Lindsay Mitchel's blog.
This is the time of year when the bludgers are particularly noticeable and I find it incredibly irritating to see them sitting in a group on the front step of their poxy rental shithole, pissing up while the rest of the world is working!
When you have been on the job for six hours working outside in the hot sun and it's only mid-day and you have six hours to go yet- you tend to find a bunch of idlers guzzling Tui BROUGHT WITH YOUR TAX MONEY very friggin' frustrating!
I'm sure these products of drunken incest like to flaunt their taxpayer-funded life of leisure to the rest of us!
It would be incredibly easy to play the 'sickness' game myself- hell, I have all sorts of now arthritic old injuries I COULD play on and I have enough medical knowledge to fake what I don't have. But this thing called 'self-respect' keeps you going.

"A man who accidentally shot dead his girlfriend with a sawn-off shotgun last year may avoid imprisonment.
Justin Paul Goldstone, 21, admitted the manslaughter of his partner of six months, Samantha Joanne Henderson, 20, when he appeared in North Shore District Court today.
He also pleaded guilty to the unlawful possession of a cut-down shotgun..."
Do I even need to start explaining why this is utter bullshit?
I doubt I would have to go past 'aiming a loaded firearm...'

Back on the crystal ball
The other party said that government would never ban fags- too much money involved.
I agreed that banning was unlikely, but what will probably is that they will be made harder to obtain legally- it will happen something like this:
Total ban on advertising.
Outlets to be licenced.
Outlet numbers to be restricted- probably shrinking-lid with a tobacco licence non-transferable.
Smokers to be licenced. ( yeah, butI bet you never believed it would be banned in the pub!)
Medical insurance denied to smokers. (you see, we know who you are now!)
Total ban in public (let labor in and watch!)
THEN it will be you evil drunkards turn!
The idea of banning smoking in the workplace or pub was considered laughable just a couple of decades ago...
Make it Right!

No time for separatists here!
"Marae-based youth courts are gaining momentum in New Zealand with a third scheduled to open next month.
The Rangi Tahi scheme, in which youth offenders are referred to a marae once they've been through the youth court, has been operating at Gisborne's Te Poho o Rawiri Marae for almost three years..."
I'm dead against ANY kind of separate 'Justice' system in this country!
One law for us all!
Not that I think much of what poses as 'Justice' in NZ, but this separatist nonsense is NOT the way to go. Anyone else see Sharia law next? Especially as we follow England in it's Lemming-like rush to self-destruction.
Fix what we have!
Also, ask yourself WHO has failed the kids who are to appear in front of these courts, in the first place...

Noise cancellation technology
I mean, really- somebody who spends all day wacking a ball about and getting paid crazy money for it.
Could I care less about him?
Yet this non-story is dominating the news.
I suppose it save journos having to get off their wide arses and LOOK for news...

Three get long jail terms for killing
"Shaun Sullivan - the violent recidivist criminal branded as ringleader in the fatal 2008 bashing of Featherston man Paul Irons - has been given a life sentence minimum non-parole 12 years in prison.
Sullivan, 26, was sentenced yesterday in the Wellington High Court alongside teenage accomplices Rangitera Spencer Walker, 16, who received a minimum non-parole life sentence of 11 years in jail for murder and Andrew Dean Kupa-Caudwell, 18, who was handed a sentence of six years in prison with a minimum of three years to be served..."
Hate to see what a SHORT sentence is then!
I call that bugger-all.
Especially for a recidivist criminal who should have been behind bars and not instigating this cowardly attack.

A country full of Nancys
"The Auckland SPCA has closed down an arcade game involving live crayfish at three pubs across the city.
The animal welfare organisation said it had visited the three pubs it knew of in Auckland running the game, where patrons paid to try to catch live crayfish using a metal claw, and made the machines inoperable. Other outlets around the country would face similar action..."
A crayfish is a frickin' crustacean!
It's an oversized bug! It's nervous system is slightly more developed than that of a potato.
The 'metal claws' in these machines have no pressure in the grip- this is to make it harder to catch a prize!
I think these SPCA types need to discover sex and strong drink...

Do what you are told!
Your political masters are out and the Nats are in (not that most of us can see a huge difference)
Now this is how it is for PUBLIC SERVANTS:
3.51 New Zealand's state sector is founded on the principle of political neutrality. Officials must perform their jobs professionally, without bias towards one political party or another. Employees in the state sector are expected to act in such a way that their agency maintains the confidence of its current Minister and of future Ministers. This principle is a key element of impartial conduct. It provides the basis on which officials support the continuing process of government by successive administrations.
Suck it up, take a big bite of the shit sandwich and get on with the job. Or find employment elsewhere.
Perhaps in the pre-prepared food or discount retail industries...

The answer may be here.
Looks like the feds want to up-cannon from their 9mm h&ks
Morons at large
"A man narrowly avoided being hit in the head by a falling rock at Franz Josef Glacier and his partner suffered a broken foot after they jumped a barrier this morning.
Constable Bill Parker said the pair - a 34-year-old New Zealander and his 24-year-old Canadian girlfriend - read the warning signs, "but they thought they'd be alright so they climbed over the barrier."
They climbed down to where the river came out of the glacier terminal and were caught in a rock slide..."
Like with the Pit Bull owners- the best way to deal with cretins that ignore the plentiful warnings is to make them bear the full cost of their rescue, treatment and police time.
I'm sick of paying for them!

Expensive for who, exactly?
Tramper's expensive mistake
"A Belgian tourist who sparked an estimated $15,000 rescue operation after failing to sign out upon her return from Aoraki/Mt Cook will not have to pay up.
Rescuers began searching for the 28-year-old on Thursday afternoon after she did not check in at the Department of Conservation office on Wednesday..."
Yes, a very expensive mistake, but not for her.
For muggins taxpayer.
I believe- you go into the mountains without insurance for this sort of thing- you take your own chances.
I'm funding too many morons and their dumbass decisions in NZ , as it is!

Dumb, dumber, dumbest
"Supporters of Alison Downer, jailed yesterday for more than two years for the drink-drive death of a cyclist, say the 71-year-old will struggle to cope in prison.
Downer, an alcoholic from Te Horo, was yesterday banned from driving for eight years for what was her fourth drink-driving conviction since 1991. She had twice blown almost three times the legal breath-alcohol limit..."
Cry me a river!- If you can't do the time, don't do the crime!

This will end in tears...and lunch
Time- wasting obnoxious prats
The fuckwit who keeps asking questions in a class on a Friday afternoon, shutting the door on an early getaway.
The same on that HAS to comment on every point raised in a meeting.
The bastard that ALWAYS takes the other position- not out of any real belief, but from sheer bloody perversity.
The staff member that you spend more time dealing with than all of the rest of them.
I think you know the one.
The one that causes conflict with 'Thou shalt not kill'
The ray of hope is that this one really means 'Thou shalt not murder' -a bit got lost in translation.
Surely it can't be murder, slaying such a one!
Perhaps 'discharging a firearm in the city limits' but not murder...
