If you have favored the 'go softly on criminal's' approach.
If you voted against harsher penalties for violent scum (not that that referendum did much good!)
If you make excuses for the inexcusable.
If you supported removal of discipline from families.
If you supported those who have been systematically destroying the traditional family.
If you believe the state knows best.
If you are OK with paying the idle to stay that way.
If you believe there should be no negative consequences for breeding like a cat.
If you bang on about 'Rights'- while never mentioning 'Responsibilities'.
If you believe that everybody is good at heart.
If you believe all that- you are a major part of the fucking problem and you SHOULD be bloody ashamed!

They are aimlessly stumbling about the isles, standing staring at the shelves- probably looking for the Brains section.
I'm glad they all appear very well fed and are not yet in devouring or ravening mode!
But I do wish they would refrain from operating motor vehicles...

I'm old enough to remember school milk. I would prefer to forget it, as it was well on the way to yoghurt by the time it was removed from the steel box by the gate. Put me and many of my generation off milk for life.
Now Fonterra have decided to supply it to schools, in a clever marketing move.
All very well, but who is going to pay for the thousands of refrigerators to keep the milk drinkable? Quite rightly, I can't see it being allowed to fester away in a concrete and steel sun-heated bunker, in these more enlightened times.
Muggins taxpayer, no doubt...

Let's focus on clobbering the minority that use the drink as an excuse for their criminal activities.
Leave the poor sods who want to take solace in the bottle from their drab and pointless existence. They have paid their dues with the alcohol supertaxes and if it shortens their lives, they are a lesser burden as they age.
As one contemplates a lifetime of toil without respite, to be milked as a tax cow, until you are dispatched to the works- it's a wonder we drink as little as we do, to forget for a moment our lot in life...

Not the Pommie bastards that want to fuck our country up, just like they did their own.
Why is it that NZ workers take top jobs elsewhere, but companies insist on putting friggin' poms into management here- and piss off our mostly excellent NZ workers?
One son of a bitch locally is on the verge of getting a bit of cranial osteopathy done with a friggin' round-mouthed shovel, next time the fucker tries to push his pommie class system crap here.
Not that anyone would ever see this happen- so I have heard...

Try to remember who they are- the hard left- ESPECIALLY the Greens. They are the dangerous ones and their support is growing. Save the vitriol for them.
Don't worry about poking holes is what's left of ACT, the Libertarianz or the up-coming Conservatives. They all have their flaws, along with some appeal, but your energies are best spent elsewhere.*
We have no common ground with the hard left.
We will have some differences with the other parties, but they are worth engaging in debate- all those that wish for less government are.
The Nat's are not our friends- their one and only grace is that they are the lesser of two evil and have more sugar coating on the Shit Pill. Thankfully, they are mostly incompatible with the Greens- but I once though the same about the relationship between them and the racist parties.
Don't both trying with the enemy. They will not be reasoned with, so don't bother- just highlight and publicize their flawed policy. Don't be ashamed or reluctant to use the same dirty tricks- you don't fight a war with one hand tied behind your back and they will show YOU no such mercy!
Destroy the hard left, then come for the left-lite.

2.7% is a very credible first election- more votes than the now defunct Act party and the racist parties.
Why are they shunned by the media?
One thought is that a party with actual principles would make poor news. Note how they love Winston- he gives them so much material!
Why are they getting even more derision from the so-called right-wing blogs?
Look to Canada for the answer there (Hat tip: Redbaiter)

If my recollection serves me, it was brought in to stop placard-wielding enthusiasts from haranguing voters at the polling stations.
To read my opinions, one must start their computer, open a web browser and search me out. They choose to seek out MY opinions. To agree with them, learn from them or in some cases- to indulge in the self-righteous delights of looking down their noses 'at what the Bad Man has written today'.
All of their own free will.
But free will has never been very popular with the powers-that-be.
I'm not one for telling people who to vote for or to give the whole affair a miss. They can bloody well sort that out for themselves.
The voters can decide how much interference from others they want in their lives. If they wish to be a citizen or a serf. We know the track record of the past ruling parties and their bed-fellows and their attitudes towards the folk that put them in power.
Rather depressingly, I know what the punters will opt for- even if they do not.

New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990

Freedom of expression

Everyone made up their mind ages ago.
At least, those with minds did.
It's rather depressing to know that which of the two major socialist parties gets in is dependent on 'swinging voters'.
Indeed, they should be swinging...

Surely they cannot be as bad as living in the fetid squalor of their lowlife breeders and they can get three decent nutritious meals a day, an education, clothes on the back- as well as learning the virtues of taking pride in work- as opposed to a drugged-out idle and useless existence.
We are aware of the excesses and abuses once committed in such institutions and now know to be vigilant against such acts.
The only way the cycle of abuse is going to be broken is to take kids out of it- and it's no use crying about the so-called parents 'rights'. Removing the breeders income stream may actually do some good too. Unlikely, but it could make some of them decide to work for a living.

SEVERE poverty my arse!
Where is the starvation?- obesity, more likely.
Where are the shantytowns?
Where are the unschooled?
Define severe poverty!
I bet the definition is not the same as mine!
We have about 850,000 children in NZ (under 15 yrs)
So 1 in 3 are in severe poverty?
Is this based on the children's income?
Either way, I'm calling bullshit on this.
Great fact checking by the media-as usual.

The proposal asks councils in the Wellington region to contribute to a pool of $2 million to fund regional events and attractions that are significant or beneficial to the region..."
I will tell you who needs to be educated.
The fuckwit councillors, who have a history of being incapable of providing basic council services. When they can get the basics of water, waste and roads right, they might look at other services. Personally, I doubt they could do anything more demanding than running a jumble sale.
What business do they have promoting events?- leave that to the professionals- the ones who stand to gain from running these events. They have the proper motivation.
Councils can't even keep their public toilets clean...

Meaning minor parties- well, what ACTUALLY happens is they whore themselves to the main party to get in power and out go their principles (assuming they had any)
The party you supported and their policies have taken a trio to toilet town- along with your vote.
You see, when we voted MMP in, we underestimated how flexible a politicians morals and principles actually were.
It's all about power at any cost and the muggins voters be damned!

This area was the only bit of retail worth a damn in the whole central city, anyway.
I have said all along that the way to go, if you must build on a peat jelly, is to go light and low- and cheap. These containers are perfect for this, as are light steel-framed and corrugated-steel prefab buildings. A bit of paint and trim and they don't have to look like an industrial area.
Could you see the powers-that-be ever consent to letting a developer to make a container mall anywhere else in NZ? Thought not. I bet they weren't keen on it for Christchurch, either.
Nor would the save-Christchurch for the Neanderthals brigade that want all the old stone crappers reconstructed- at somebody else's expense, of course.
Now how about a container cathedral?
Beats a 50 million dollar symbol of the church's vanity...

"The Masterton District Council is planning to tackle youth unemployment - but still hasn't decided how to do it..."
Then there is the observation:
"...Councillor David Holmes said he had taken on work experience students in the past, and it was a huge commitment for an employer. A lot of good people were out there, but there were "a lot of people who don't want to work"..."
Easy- remove the idler's benefits!

Of course when the government wants an incident so serious they can seize power- the materials could be forthcoming.
An old warehouse, somewhere in a city and surround the device with drums of nuclear waste, to make it nice and dirty.
A timer counts down and the firing circuit is now active and awaiting a cell phone call or the secondary back-up timer to finish counting down. A cordite charge fires and a hollow slug of Uranium 235 slams onto the target at 300 metres per second. Microseconds later, a city starts to die and a nation is locked down.
All according to plan...

This one involves a USA in the near future that has more or less mirrored the path of Germany from the 20's to the 40's.
The administration, knowing they were to be ousted at the polls, engineer a crisis that dwarfs 9/11. Elections are suspended and whats left of a tattered constitution is now cast to the winds.

This is not about the rock- throwing, car burning rioting or armed resistance, but about the more subtle methods used by those unable or unwilling to take up arms.
Even in the vilest regimes, there have been those who found a way to fight back- the slave workers of WWII, who managed to leave a bit of cotton waste in a fuel system, or grit in a gearbox.
In my story, we have a less overt form of fascism (slightly). People find ways of making the government's apparatus job more difficult- misinformation, over-reporting of 'suspicious activity', casting aspersions towards minor officials. Neighbors who start having parties and making noise to disturb the sleep of a local official. The farmers who leave supplies out, where the armed revolutionaries can readily find them. Contractors who are always a day late delivering or repairing goods and services to the government- and never do as good a job as they could.
Then there are those within the system who would fight back. The policeman who turns a blind eye. The storeman who makes supplies 'vanish'. The soldiers that break irreplaceable equipment.
Any ideas of subtle or passive resistance would be appreciated!
Who knows?- we may need to try them out one day...

The one thing that might salvage the crock of shit, is that so many are taking the money and bailing. Acre for acre, the land in that area is going to be worth less than a bit of stony bare land out the back of Springfield. As it is, the land is worthless, as high-rise is looking to be uninsurable- and there goes the business sector.
So, I say let it return to park with cheap land for those that will take the risk of building there. Maybe the cheap land will attract what the run-down semi-derelict old rentals used to. The bars, cafes and restaurants that were all done on a shoestring budget.
They were the appeal of the CBD- retail was dying well before the shakeup, as the shops relocated to the outlying malls- as they have been doing worldwide.
Bars, food outlets, boutiques and brothels can all be build in quake-resistant steel and timber and don't need to be more than two stories high.
Likewise, low-rise apartments catering to those who like that sort of lifestyle.
Think outside of the concrete box!
Looks like I'm not the only one thinking this.

Yep, make dope legal.
BUT- employers will test for it, as they do now. Just as turning up with alcohol in the system will get you the boot, so will dope.
ALSO- Given that beneficiaries are meant to be work- ready- they should be subject to random testing, too. Fail the test, no dole.
If you drive a vehicle on the road- expect to get tested, just like for alcohol.

The unemployed and the retired don't give a damn- so who actually wants it- and why?
It's not like we magically get more hours in the day.
I suspect it's those in the civil service- childless and on glide time who want to sip Chardonnay on the deck after a day of making life more difficult for the rest of us.

"...Remember that scene in The Young Ones where Neil the hippy, fearful of nuclear bombs, paints himself white to deflect the blast? It's the same concept, with the whiteness of the oyster shells reflecting the sun's rays away from the soil and into the canopy to help ripen the fruit faster.
We may not reach the same high temperatures that other countries do, but one thing we do have plenty of is UV.
We're about 30 per cent higher in UV here than our corresponding latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's a significant factor.
Rod agrees. "When I host people from overseas I tell them to think about New Zealand wines being ripened by light rather than heat and suddenly a light goes on. That freshness, vitality and brightness in our wines suddenly all makes sense. People get that..."

He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden
leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his
problem. A few days later he receives a parcel with a
Please find enclosed a Pirate's outfit. The spotted
handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden
leg you will be just right as a Pirate. The man is
offended that the outfit emphasizes his disability, so he
writes a letter of complaint.. A week passes and he
receives another parcel and note:
Sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a
monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and
with your bald head you will really look the part. The man
is really incandescent with rage now, because the company
has gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to drawing
attention to his bald head. So he writes a really strong
letter of complaint.. A few days later he gets a very small
parcel from the company with the accompanying letter:
Please find enclosed a tin of Golden Syrup.
We suggest you pour the tin of Golden Syrup over your bald
head, let it harden, then stick your wooden leg up your arse
and go as a toffee apple.
