Gone Bush

Back in a week or sooner if I can find an unsecured wifi site!

It's called a holiday

Apparently, it's meant to be fun.

I'm not sure for who, exactly.

On defense forces cuts

I saw a good comment on the subject here:

Kay Atchison #1 11:07 am Jun 29 2011

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...

Situations Vacant

I have a position open for a Misplaced Currency Retrieval Officer.

This position requires that the successful applicant locates and retrieves any misplaced currency from footpaths, shop floors, etc.

Renumeration is by commission at 5% of all retrieved currency.

All you have to do is find $200/hour to give you an income of $58,000 P.A.!

Just look at how many voted for Hone...

Cactus Kate for Prime Minister

VOTD- this should fly like the proverbial lead zeppelin

So- how about making the (once bulldozed) red zone available for allotments, like they do in England?

It is conveniently placed so the poor from the Eastern suburbs can grow vegetables and rear chickens on this otherwise unusable land...

Reject the obvious candidate

Quote of the Week

"The problem with this country at the fundamental level; We treat adults like children and children like adults."

Not an actual scenario- but it could easily have been

My tale of two denizens of NZ’s lower class was a construct of many painfully similar stories I have witnessed, heard of or suspected. I have been contacted by readers thinking they know the persons I alluded to.

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…

One born every minute

"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...

No too many options

Yesterday I was asked what sort of a job is available for a person with no talent, motivation or brains. The job had to be local so Feckless Fred had a chance of getting there.

I thought of a few options:
Dairy- Too early, too hard.
Forestry- Needs blokes not scared of hard work and are unlikely to drop a tree on their head.
Sawmill- Too much ACC liability.
Supermarket- Minimal numeracy/literacy required.
Viticulture- Far too fast paced.
Refuse collection- they drug-test.
Roading- see refuse.
Retail- Can only speak caveman.
Pest control- A firearms license- yeah, right...

Unfortunately there is no medical experimentation going on locally.

You start to see why some folks are completely unemployable. We really need to bring back the workhouse for these types...

Is this the right way around?

"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...

Learn the meaning of SHAME

From the MSD propaganda rag, as posted over on Lindsay Mitchell's Blog: (also at KG's)

"...We are second only to the US where their rate is also boosted by very high minority teenage birth rates.

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..."

It's a damned shame eugenics got such bad press. We certainly need it for these leeches that are tapped into society's major arteries.

They and their apologists have a serious moral malfunction when they CHOOSE to deprive EARNERS and their families of what is rightfully theirs. What they would use to raise their own families.

And they are smiling about it, playing us for the dumb suckers we are...

A slow learning curve

"In the future Shane Christiansen will stick to well-lit roads when thumbing a ride at night.

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..."
(Bold mine)

Some mothers do have 'em!

For those who don't know the road, the only light where Einstein managed to get in front of a car is moonlight. And the moons wasn't out then- I know that as I drove past the scene. Two fire engines, two police cars and two ambulances. Want to work out what THAT cost us before zippy the wonder slug even got to the ED?

Old school

Tomkinson's Schooldays Part 1 by natchezoo

For the impatient, it starts 2:45 into the video

Whiny little darma queens

"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...

Yes- its buggered

Time to stop mucking about and put the past behind. These old structures have had their day and need to go. Build something that looks like them out of modern materials, if you wish, but its time to lose this 'preserve the old at all costs' nonsense.

Time to move on.

Too Right!

Put me in charge

Put me in charge of food stamps. I’ll 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 tattoos 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 Xbox 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 someone’s rights, realize that all of the above are 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 taxpayers are expected to pay for other people’s 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.

And finally, while you are on Government subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will lose your voting privileges while you are receiving a Government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job!”

I found the gem at Trevor Loudon's blog- always worth a read!

A copy of 'Atlas Shrugged' found at Labor Party conference

On dealing with ingrates

MacDoctor has this wired!

"...Take it from an old hand at this. If a drunk patient is unco-operative, there is always a nice, quiet jail cell where they can go and rest until they have slept off the booze. Suturing up a wound the following day does not produce as nice a result as immediate closure, but so what? The patient has indicated to you that s/he would like a lousy-looking scar by their very combativeness. Unless you have very strong reasons to suspect a dangerous head injury, or some other life-threatening problem, in the drunk person, there is no need to provide any medical service that might put you or your nurses in harm’s way..."

Full article here.

As one who had delivered a few stroppy piss-pots to ED, I could not agree more!

What's more annoying- boozing beneficiaries or beggers

A letter on 'get used to the sight of beggars' appears in the DomPost.

It is a dig on the current crackdown [Insert Tui ad here] on beneficiaries and how the poor dears will be forced into beggary as a result- thus we need to get used to the sight of them.

As if we never had pro mendicants. They were either supplementing their taxpayer rorting or were so useless they couldn't even be arsed jumping the very small hurdles (about as hard as jumping a wet noodle) that WINZ put in their way. (I add an exemption here for the genuinely and not self-inflicted mentally ill cases out there.)

In any case, I prefer the sight of beggars to beneficiaries boozing on the front lawn while I'm working. I see a LOT more of these than beggars.

I'm hoping, but not expecting, to see a reversal of this situation...

Not it isn't

"Corrections Minister Judith Collins wants to shut down Wellington's Mt Crawford Prison - which she called a disgrace.

The prison, which was built in 1927, holds about 120 prisoners and is located next to the suburb of Miramar. It was temporarily closed from June 2008 until July 2009.

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!

No respite for the VOTD

Another aftershock of 5.5 this morning.

Could the reason for the very slow rebuild be that the powers that be believe this is not over yet?

Or is it just the usual Bureaucratic SNAFU? (probably)

Personally, I don't believe this is over yet and there is a high probability of another large and destructive quake yet...

Half-arsed reform

"...The group is also looking at the option of long-term reversible contraception being provided to long-term beneficiaries, a single Jobseeker support benefit, and requiring single parents to work part-time.

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..."

I see no problem with making contraception compulsory.

After all, our tax deductions that PAY for beneficiaries are compulsory, are they not?
If it's good enough to take our money by force, it's good enough to make contraception a non-negotiable condition to receiving our money,

As for sterilizing them, do it at no cost to them and motivate them to take up the offer with a modest cash grant. No force, just a choice.

This one is easy, too

"Lavish praise has been heaped on New Zealanders for their environmental awareness by one of the world's top climate scientists, who is now calling on the country to show leadership and take action..."

I agree.

Tell the envirofascists to fuck off and try making a living selling Amway.

This one is easy

"The Green Party is going into its three-day conference embroiled in an intense political debate about whether it can work with National..."

The real issue is will the nats work with a bunch of feral hippy retards. They shouldn't . They DO have the mandate to tell the whale kissing tree-huggers to go get a big hairy dog up 'em.

But the spineless nat pinkos will probably try to appease them. To no avail, of course.

We have seen how sucking up to a pack of racist tribalists works- it doesn't- they take what you have on offer, spit in your face and piss on your ancestors graves. Exactly as you would expect them to do..

Can you frickin' smufs ever get it through your heads that your support base would INCREASE if you told these leftist scum to sod off and die?

Today is better

A sleep-in 'till 0700, two cups of coffee and home-killed bacon with runny eggs- plus three days off.

That's kicked the Black Dog up the arse!

Please explain

"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...

This here is a bottle, the symbol of our land

A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a pity as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palate but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

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.

I'm getting stuck into a bottle of Kelly's Promise, a sparkling Shiraz Cabernet. Probably Ned Kelly's promise to the constabulary and the poms in general and I'm going to wake up feeling like I've been pistol-whipped and a wombat has shat in my mouth...

You have to wonder

...what would happen to our population if you had to prove signs of intelligence, in order to breed.

Kids school had a trip up to the edge of the ranges to do a bit of nature & science. The inevitable permission slip stated quite clearly that WARM clothing, sturdy shoes and a raincoat would be needed. The morning of the trip was a frosty minus one degrees- that's here in town, not a 200 meters up shaded valley.

So most of the kids turned up under-dressed. Not so much the boys, but the girls used the day out of uniform to have a fashion parade. And froze.

Light cotton is not much use below zero.

Two kids were actually comfortable- my son and the boy of a family I know to be active outdoors types too.

At first I wondered what the hell the parents were thinking- then realized that they have ZERO experience with being out of doors in cold weather- apart from to dash to the car. They just don't go outside when it is not summer. You don't need to know how to dress for the conditions when you live and work in a controlled environment- the heat pump or fire is always going.

We have a disaster like the VOTD in the bottom half of winter and Darwin wins another hand...
