I suspect that Paul Homes is echoing the thoughts of many in this country this morning. It’s time to cancel our repugnant national holiday Waitangi Day produced its usual hatred, rudeness, and violence against a clearly elected Prime Minister from a group of hateful, hate-fuelled weirdos who seem to exist in a perfect world of benefit provision. This… Continue reading Waitangi Day Needs Reformed

The union says it, Idiot believes it, that settles it
Idiot really hates the idea of charter schools. Destiny Church. They’ve announced plans to move their existing private school to South Auckland and re-establish it as a charter school in order to receive public funding. LOL. No, they have not. What Idiot’s own source says: Destiny Church could receive money from the public purse if… Continue reading The union says it, Idiot believes it, that settles it
The gap is not the issue
This little dilemma demonstrates very nicely why I’m not interested in the gap between “rich” and “poor”. You have a button in front of you, placed there by a helpful genie. But instead of giving you the standard three wishes (and why doesn’t anybody ever wish for ten wishes?), the genie has limited your options. If… Continue reading The gap is not the issue
Greenpeace Exploits the dead
Flicked over to The Standard this morning and this appeared in the header. Sort of sick, isn’t it? Greenpeace is of course making the point that we should ban offshore drilling. Apparently abusing the corpse of a penguin who died in oil from the results of an incompetent ship’s crew demonstrates that we should ignore the fact that… Continue reading Greenpeace Exploits the dead
Climate change – we have a deal!
Idiot has his analysis of the climate change deal: In other words, our governments at Durban have just decided to let the planet burn, so they can continue to live in artificial, unsustainable comfort for another decade. This isn’t just a matter of them ruining the world for their children and grandchildren; they’re also ruining it… Continue reading Climate change – we have a deal!
Meanwhile, in the upside down world that is teaching…
Teaching, the only profession where better results can be obtained by people who aren’t professionally trained*. Also, apparently you can’t attract good staff if you offer to pay them more. “If people have total control over the curriculum, that’s open to go down a path which may or may not be beneficial for everyone. And I… Continue reading Meanwhile, in the upside down world that is teaching…
Why no posts
I guess an explanation of why there’s been a dropoff in activity here is in order: We have a National Government. I started this blog in 2006 in outrage at the Labour government’s blatant corruption as they successfully evaded legal consequences for their stealing of the 2005 election. Well, they’re out of power now, and I am… Continue reading Why no posts
Dear Left, people convince me you care, and aren’t just trying for votes
Once, just once, I’d love to see someone from the left tell us how to fix the economy (fast!) without proposing to hike taxes on the rich. Well, they never do. I guess it’s a cheap trick though. Point to people who (apparently) aren’t paying taxes, ignore the fact that they actually contribute most of the… Continue reading Dear Left, people convince me you care, and aren’t just trying for votes
How to fix the world food supply, or break it. Your choice.
Saw this on Contra Celsum just now. Oxfam’s chief executive, Dame Barbara Stocking, claimed this week in a BBC interview that there will “absolutely not be enough food” to feed the world’s population in a few decades’ time. Such certainty about the future is remarkable, so I downloaded Oxfam’s new “report” with interest. Once I… Continue reading How to fix the world food supply, or break it. Your choice.
Chicago school bans homemade lunches
Some on the left like to tell us that “Political Correctness Gone Mad” is a meaningless phrase. Nonsense. Students who attend Chicago’s Little Village Academy public school get nothing but nutritional tough love during their lunch period each day. The students can either eat the cafeteria food–or go hungry. Only students with allergies are allowed… Continue reading Chicago school bans homemade lunches
