What’s happened to the real issues?

I pulled gladwrap off a hot dish in the microwave and burnt my finger with the steam. Over an hour later, and after sitting it in a glass of water it still stings like heck! In fact I am wondering if typing is making it worse. But though I’ll survive, what if I had injured… Continue reading What’s happened to the real issues?

And the Award Goes to

The award for “Almost Justifying The Unjustifiable” goes to… “Just Left” “These are not personal comments. Don Brash in person is mild mannered and inoffensive. Whatever he does in his personal life is his business. “ Glad we cleared that up.

NZ Politics Today

Whale Oil is right, the gloves are off. Labour has the cheek to say on National TV “stop the tittle-tattle, and call the dogs off”. They have already and Clark dismissed it. Unfortunately for her, it wasn’t a public pulling back, it was private. This, in my opinion, gives it much more credibility Don Brash… Continue reading NZ Politics Today

One step back from the cliff

Our democracy is one step back from the cliff today, with the Greens respecting our civil instutions and decreeing that they too will pay back any money deemed unlawfully spent.

Hey we are all sinners and guilty of slagging off I’m sure but Parliament needs to grow up! Soon the Maori party… Continue reading Something more pleasant to listen to than Aunty Helen and Brother Don

Labour thinks we are all stupid

David Farrar has (the latest reason) why. So let me get this straight: Helen Clark, in spite of being a consummate politician of many, many years experience. She has run the tightest ship imaginable. She has appeared increasingly irate at National’s tactics. But she didn’t authorise The Duck’s antics in exposing an alleged affair from… Continue reading Labour thinks we are all stupid

“We hate the USA” Club

Little Green Footballs has a roundup of The Non-Aligned Movement of developing nations’ hoedown in Cuba. Most of these guys are despicable in their own way. (I say most as India isn’t a bad guy, they just signed a nuclear deal with the US.) Plus, we all know evil always portrays itself as good. Surely,… Continue reading “We hate the USA” Club
