Book Milestones

In the Smashwords fiction section (Long) Meddlers in Time is 162/17010

I'm in the top 1% of downloads!

Same old line

"Labour will introduce a member's bill to ensure holidays that fall on a weekend can be taken another day.

New Zealanders will miss out on two of 11 public holidays this year because Waitangi Day is a Sunday and Anzac Day falls on Easter Monday - already a statutory holiday.

Labour MP Grant Robertson said the holidays should be able to be taken on a Monday in such instances..."

The merits of this proposal aside- You had how many years in power, when you could have easily done this?

And didn't.

Like the $5000 tax-free threshold.

At the risk of offending more discerning readers- Lindauer Pinot Gris is not bad at the price!

A new slogan for a trendy town

'Greytown- where your brain goes for a holiday'

This was prompted by three displays of appalling 'driving' while passing through the town today.
The latest in a string of such events that I have personally witnessed this summer. No doubt there are many more to come.

But it's not locals- its the out of town types- many of whom have holiday homes here. Try driving like they do here back in Wellington and a bus will put you in a world of hurt!

Pulling out into traffic- usually without indicators.
A general lack of indicators.
An inability to parallel park.
Stopping in the middle of the road to talk to someone you have spotted on the footpath.
An inability to tell where the open road starts- and ends.
A TOTAL inability to drive on unsealed reads (yet they try!)

And as for clueless pedestrians that think the normal rules of road-crossing are suspended because THEY are on holiday...

More Danegeld for the greenies

More Danegeld for those who will NEVER vote for you.

Try pitching to the likes of ME. A working white male who has a wife and children and doesn't see why he should be paying for a bunch of deadbeats, spongers, bludgers and the chemically addled, terminally work-shy results of devolution in action and every axe- grinding friggin' minority group under the sun.

Also- developing some principles would be a start on the path to growing a backbone...

Kill the evil frackin' clown

"Masterton is poised to get another fast-food franchise with the expected arrival of global hamburger chain Burger King.

Burger King is thought to be the frontrunner for securing a Masterton Trust Lands Trust site in a prime location, the corner of Chapel St and Lincoln Rd, opposite the National Bank, for the construction of a restaurant..."

About bloody time!

Not being inclined to inflict children on the patrons of REAL restaurants, one is sort of forced to use these places to feed the kiddies.

Unlike the establishment claiming to be a restaurant (the place with the freakin' clown), Burger King has edible food. The Double Whopper is indeed the king of franchise fast food.

And unlike the opposition's (The K rations of hamburgers)- ONE burger is plenty.

I hate food nazis

"Kiwi children are running the gauntlet of fast-food outlets on their way to and from school, research shows.

The high number of outlets near schools is thought to be a factor in the childhood-obesity epidemic sweeping the Western world.

The problem has prompted the Secondary Principals' Association of New Zealand (Spanz) to call for restrictions on what dairies near schools can sell during certain hours.

A new study by Canterbury University's GeoHealth Laboratory showed fast-food outlets were 5 1/2 times more likely to be clustered around schools than other areas and three times more likely to be in poorer areas than rich..."

Did I ever tell you how much I friggin' hate Food Nazis?

Of course I have- and I shall keep doing so.

These scum will not stop until the control EVERY part of our lives, if left unchecked.

The last sentence in the quote shows the shonky 'research' (opinion more like)

There would be more shops in the poorer areas due to the lower bloody rent, more than anything!

Asset sales

While I'm aware that an ASSET is something that produces income and not something that costs money, could we not investigate selling civil servants as indentured servants?

We cut the cost of keeping them and who knows- perhaps a prospective owner may find a use for them.

With the rising cost of diesel, the slave galley could make a comeback- as could the use of field hands. For preference, those with greenie tendencies could be first on the block for these career changes.

Mark Twain

Why did it take me so long to actually read his stuff!


Jails and Nursing Homes

Here’s the way it should be:

Let’s put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing homes.

This would correct two things in one motion:

Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and walks.

They would receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical

Treatment, wheel chairs, etc.

They would receive money instead of having to pay it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly… If they fell or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.

All meals and snacks would be brought to them.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight/fitness room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education…and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally recognized entertainment artists.

Simple clothing – i.e.. Shoes, slippers, pj’s – and legal aid would be free, upon request.

There would be private, secure rooms provided for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with gardens.

Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and radio in their room at no cost.

They would receive daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear any complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights and protection.

The guards would have a code of conduct to be strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no charge to protect the seniors

And their families from abuse or neglect.

As for the criminals:

They would receive cold food.

They would be left alone and unsupervised.

They would receive showers once a week.

They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would have to pay $5,000 per month.

They would have no hope of ever getting out.

“Sounds like justice to me!”

Pitching to the punters- epic fail

National- let me explain how this works, as you keep making an arse of it.

The party faithful- they just need to see you stick to policy- whatever that may be. You have to really piss them off to make them take their votes elsewhere.

The enemy (greens and the labor party faithful- they will NEVER vote for you. Ever. Not even once. So it MUST follow that you give them NOTHING!

The swinging/undecided/hope they get their arses away from in front of the tv and vote for you voters:

THIS is where the pork and the promises go because THEY put you in or out. The faithful won't put you in and the enemy won't get you out. A mob of fickle cretins do this.

So suck up to them. Try to appeal using policies that your faithful like. Lower taxation, big on Law & Order are always good.


Give the labor toadies NOTHING. They are not swinging voters.

Feel free to visit my paypal with a fat tip for this basic bit of advice.

2012 explained

I bet that centuries ago, there was a dialog that went something like this:

'Finished, boss.'

'About bloody time- in my day we would have finished that order before we got our morning cocoa... WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?'

'The calender you asked for, boss.'

'IDIOT!!!- I said 20...12...year...calenders- and THAT is on the slab ordered for the front of the bloody temple!!!'

'Sorry Boss!'

'Just fill the rest up with jaguar gods and I'll act like this was what was meant to be on it. Bloody priests don't know if they are Arthur or Martha!'

'OK, Boss.'

'Still- if they buy it and it goes on the front of the new temple, everyone is going to want one...'

"A family of 13 is homeless after fire damaged their rented house yesterday morning..."

Will you landlords EVER learn from this?

I have zero sympathy for landlords if shit happens to their properties, when they let out to anyone that happens along. When they can't be bothered doing a bit of checking up at random hours- hell, try talking to the neighbors!

They have no consideration for the neighbors who have to put up with party houses and the lowlives they attract. They are not continually disturbed by the comings and goings, burnouts, parties, broken glass and thieving- no they live elsewhere!

So when your property gets trashed or burnt out, don't be surprised to see me laughing at your misfortune.


"A mongrel mob associate's grasp of history was sadly exposed in a Napier court when a judge asked him what he thought the term "sieg heil" meant.

"It's just another way of saying hi to the bros," Fabian Hungahunga, 21, replied when Judge Tony Adeane asked what he thought the term meant.

The term, adopted by the Nazi Party in the 1930s to signal obedience to the party's leader, Adolf Hitler, is commonly used by Mongrel Mob members..."

Is that what is known as a 'Freudian Silp'?

Ebook reader

This gadget is working better than I had hoped. After a bit of downloading (possibly part of why I have run out of broadband) I have a whole library on tap.

For free!

And I still have most of the 2 gig of memory free. No need to buy an SD expansion card yet- and they just keep getting cheaper.

Village of the Damned recycles and damn the cost

"The council has responded to criticism from readers, saying 70,000 litres of water needed to erect an inflatable dome in Cathedral Sq will be reused..."

70,000 litres of water- that has a vaule of slightly less than $2.00 per cubic meter- about $130 at the local rate for those exceeding their quota.

So they will truck the water to where it can be reused- that will be 4-5 water tanker loads. Even just going a couple of k's, the cost of the transport is going to far exceed the value of the water.

A typical council PR stunt. They do not have the balls to stand up and say the cost to reuse this water is excessive and is yet another buden on the ever-suffering ratepayers.

But, hey- got to appease the green vote!

Surrender to the crims

"A bill that would make imprisonment a penalty for people with overdue fines, has today been criticised by a lobby group that says Ireland has abandoned similar legislation.

The Courts and Criminal Matters Bill, which was introduced last April and is currently before a parliamentary select committee, is intended to strengthen enforcement measures.

Among the proposed amendments, people with outstanding fines might have their driver's licence suspended. Where fines were unaffordable and unenforceable, the legislation provides for the penalty to be a prison term or home detention sentences.

Rethinking Crime and Punishment lobby group director Kim Workman said international research showed imprisonment for non-payment of fines was a bad idea..."

Yes, well the usual hand-wringers WOULD think that!

And it is NOT a good idea, BUT that stick has to be there for the recidivist types that will not pay. Nor will these types care about forfeiture of licence. They just carry on as if nothing has happened. Jail is the only option for these lowlife- until we bring back the workhouse!

How about dock their earnings or dole? This can be done for liable parent- or even for student loans- just put a lower threshold- like earning or receiving anything as a wage earner or a mendicant.

Two contrasting views on the scraps of society today.

Laws calling it as it is again. Liberals hiding their heads in the sand, refusing to recognize, let alone act against the ferals.

And this hand-wringing ninny talks about collectivist shame. Ours, of course- not the bum's and dero's.

Zombie Training School

Can you?

Wander aimlessly
Look as ugly as fuck
Mumble mindlessly

Come on down and we can finish the process and make you a fully participating member of the undead world!

(can there be another reason for this establishment?)

Economy class

Six bucks per adult/per night and two for kids over three.

And no other campers in sight.

Facilities are toilets and water.

You would think these mooching 'freedom campers'* could afford that.

There are 250 of these DOC campsites around NZ (this is one of the things they do right).

* As in free to crap where they like, leave rubbish and other feral activities.

Yet again


You to need to shoulder some of the blame for your misfortune. YOU get in the car with them, usually knowing full well they may have been drinking and probably can barely drive in a straight line dead sober, in any case. YOU do not chastise them when they drive like a loon- rather encourage them. YOU are happy for them to drive pissed, knowing that YOU won't be looking at a conviction or even a censure if they are caught.

"... She said Ms Wilson, whom she met when they were at Taita College together, was not a safety-conscious person. "My Aimee wouldn't have been wearing a seatbelt..."

From the story, it would appear that this was the case.

Yet again.

This is the sort of thing that will keep on happening when we live in a world were concepts such as responsibility and consequences are trivialized.

And it's not going to change anytime soon...

Control the terms of debate at all costs

Back from beyond

Of course, after predicting showers that failed to eventuate for a week, it poured down the night we went camping.

At least it waited until 2100 and stopped by daybreak.

I wonder why we bother with the multi-million dollar weather service. For all the satellite info and computer modeling, the old days of the lighhtouse keepers and ships radioing in what was coming our way seemed to work at least as well...

In your face fags

"McDonald's is under pressure to change the internet access policies at its restaurants because gay websites are not accessible.

The fast-food chain offers customers free WiFi access in 132 of its outlets nationwide..."

Hang on.

What is ANY self-respecting adult WITHOUT ACCOMPANYING CHILDREN doing eating in that shit-hole?

At most you should be grabbing a McFood substitute to go.

Download your pornography at work, like everyone else.

Fecking pink mafia!

Charity begins at home

...then it extends to our nearest neighbors- and they are going to need a hand now and in the near future.

They are one of the few countries that will come to our aid in an instant- and have many times.

Something I always knew

"...Her first study found a rise in eating disorder symptoms among adolescent girls following the introduction of broadcast television to the island nation in 1995.

In that report she found Television New Zealand’s Shortland Street – Fiji’s top rating programme – had a major impact on teenage health.

The latest report found that the study’s subjects did not even need to have a television at home to see raised risk levels of eating disorder symptoms..."

I can agree with some of these studies.

Watching that taxpayer-funder drek makes ME positively nauseous, along with filling me with an overwhelming powerful urge to pour industrial-strength bleach into my eyes.

It's as bad a work of fiction as the msm news!

We are not alone

The truth hurts . . this was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, Texas on 18 November, 2010:

Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get tats and piercings, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or X box 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a government job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the common good.

Before you write that I've violated someones rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be demeaning and ruin their self esteem consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other peoples mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

It starts at home

"The Government has no plans to step up to the global standard for foreign aid contributions, despite a new report urging it to do so.

A peer review by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development found New Zealand's foreign aid was down 4 per cent in 2009 and at $407 million, was the lowest of 24 developed countries in the Development Assistance Committee.

New Zealand's aid was equivalent to 0.28 per cent of gross national income, well short of the agreed United Nations target of 0.7 per cent..."

I have a better proposal.

Foreign aid is canned. You get NOTHING from us.

We are broke from fixing Christchurch. It may be the Village of the Damned, but it's a New Zealand Village of the Damned.

Wanted- a new political force

Progressives and liberals need not apply.

I'm thinking the name could be The Constitution Party'

Primary aim:

To develop a constitution for New Zealand, clearly outlining the Rights and RESPONSIBILITIES of the citizens of New Zealand.

This constitution is to take precedence over all other laws and statutes.

Right- let's write a Constitution!

So we don't re-invent the wheel, this is the model to work from!

Time for warning signs on stairs

That will be next.

FFS, 50 new signs at a Rotorua park, because of one entirely preventable death.

Do we need warning signs printed (in 50 different languages) along every curb in NZ- because some kid might run out onto the road?

Kids don't think.

Most adults try to do it for them, until they are capable of doing so themeslves.

It is a statistical impossibility to save them from EVERY danger- try as we might...

Manly stuff

Q- Why do you spend hours in the heat of summer cutting firewood?

A- So my wife and kids don't go cold in the winter, you dumbfuck!

Q- But why do it at the hottest time of year?

A- Because the wood is dry now and that is easiest on the saw- and the fucker on the saw.

Q Why don't you just fit a heat pump?

A- Are you incapable of working basic mathematics or do you work for the fucking government?

and what I actually got


While this is a cheap ebook reader, it works really well and I'm using it a lot.

I have found SO many out-of-copyright books that I have always wanted to read and they are FREE!

Even the latest titles are a fraction the cost of print and word is prices will continue to fall.

I will definitely be buying one of the more upmarket readers with the real-ink screens that actually look like paper (and have way more battery life)

My son already has dibs on the current one.

(it's a MiGear, available at Dick Smiths and they will probably drop in price once the novelty factor wears off)

What IS the point?

Of owning a new merc sports car when you are totally unable to drive.

Unable to drive as in:

Incapable of staying between the white lines
Incapable to travelling at over 80kph on a straight piece of open road in perfect weather conditions.

Plus- all that money and it doesn't even have working indicators!

I suspect the other car is a John Deere...


At the time, I though it was just kids rioting in the next room...

Calling it as it is

Michael Laws can be a bit of a cock at times, but he does what so few in political circles dares:

"Former Whanganui mayor Michael Laws has become embroiled in the latest child abuse death after the district's current mayor asked him to remove a picture of the five-year-old from his Facebook page.

Laws refused, saying he was taking the case personally because he knew Sahara Baker from her time at his daughter Lucy's pre-school...

...An email exchange with Main followed, Laws saying: "I have no intention of letting the feral Maori underclass keep killing their kids. They are almost all exclusively Maori ... victim and perpetrator. Look at the local roll call: Karl Perigo-Check, Cherish, Jhia Te Tua ... now Sahara. Notice the common thread?"

He said Main was helping protect a "feral family she didn't know" and signed off: "I regard you and your ilk as part of the problem. Have a great White Ribbon Day next year and feel better about your liberal impotence..."

(Bold Mine)

We need more of this plain speaking and a hell of a lot less pussyfooting around the REAL problem- our scummy underclass- be they brown, white or brindle trash.

If a few folks precious feelings get hurt- they are alive to feel the pain!
