Letter to the Grim Reaper
Dear Grim Reaper,
This year you have taken my favourite male actor, Patrick
Swayze. You also took my favourite female actor, Farrah
Fawcett Major and my favourite entertainer and dancer,
I want to be sure you know that Hone Harawira is my favorite

a domestic issue
Now, that's more plausible.
We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.
We're told Woods became "distracted," thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.
Definitely more like it. I still wonder why the local Mayor has to be interviewed by the world's media and cover up over some two-bit domestic. A bit like our own Mayor Bob inspecting notified, but unmaintained council drains.
Hell hath no fury... Only in America!
The threat to our environment is not a new concern, but it is now a global challenge which will continue to affect the security and stability of millions for years to come.
Many of those affected are among the most vulnerable, and many of the people least well able to withstand the effects of climate change live in the Commonwealth.
With a load of feelgood bollocks such as that, we are all doomed. Even HRH Betty Windsor is delivering climatewash.
Time for a change?

“You are a lying shit,” he says in the email. “I don’t know if you’re simply a fool or a stooge. I look forward to exposing your lies and duplicity in the national media and have the paper trail to prove your villainy.”
Mayor Michael is upping the ante with the local port company.
Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples said Mr Goff's comments were a desperate move. "Let's hope he doesn't stir up something when there's nothing there."
Eh? As one awaits Hone's apology of the day to rejoin the separatists, could I be forgiven thinking that Goff is the only one with a corner of the stirrer's market?
Mr Key's deal with the Maori Party was "cynical", "shabby and short-term" manipulating the treaty settlement process in a way that could damage the process.
Like hell, as the dust barely has settled on the latest racist stitch-up.
Pot, meet kettle.

An article this morning in the Dominion Post on the Manawatu Sewer with an accompanying picture purporting to be a pic of the Manawatu River. It is in fact a northward looking picture of a section of the Pohangina River around the rail bridge at 40 17 53S 175 45 57E. The Pohangina is part of the Manawatu catchment, but from the article, you would never know.
Also, for today's piece of useless info, the Manawatu River is the only river in the world that rises on one side of a range of hills and discharges to sea on on the opposite side of the source ranges.
Never ever believe what is served up as fact in the MSM for repeaters are often caught out letting a good story get in the way of truth.

A racist piece of legislation favouring those of a certain colour whilst shafting the whole New Zealand economy in the name of the 'noo religion', climate change.
The most telling part is the stitched up arrangement between National and the Maori Party. As Shane Jones says 'the great white National shark has just swallowed the Maori Party minnow'. I believe Hone will now go feral and the Maori Party will meltdown. Standby for Queen Titewhai raising the Maori sovereignty flag at Waitangi in a couple of months.
In four short years, National has gone from Iwi/Kiwi hero to an apartheid enabler.
A truly sorry day for New Zealand.
So much so, that scientists can even pronounce reefs as icebergs on a rough weather day.
Antarctica has always had no doubt more than its fair share of focus as it is a veritable goldmine of information being such a pristine and massive but harsh icy continent.
What really amazes me is just this week we suddenly hear the the ice shelves are disintegrating at hitherto unknown rates. Faster than ever seen before. Funny how it wasn't news last week or last year, ice of that volume just doesn't melt overnight.
The mind of a cynic could suggest such bleatings by cornered climatologists have had this
What say you? I know which way my cynical mind takes me on these matters.

Skills and innovation are what is needed to build the New Zealand nation and make it successful.
Increasing productivity is the key. It is known we are sadly lagging behind the likes of Oz in the productivity stakes. Infrastructure development plays a big part as do more value added export products. Hard decisions need to be made by this government, not populist decisions.
Unfortunately we have the likes of unions (CTU Helen Kelly and EPMU stiff present on show) looking to increase productivity by giving the unionised a general wage order to equal Oz wages. Union thieves demanding high wages is why we currently have such poor productivity.
Then we have the Maori element (TPK Pauline Kingi and a 'Maori' accountant) suggesting that to be successful, New Zealand has to keep funneling taxpayer money via grievance industry settlements and racist sweetheart deals like that we are about to see this week on carbon trading and RWC broadcasting coverage. As if any of that helps lift productivity.
Most participants were cornered on agreeing with some form of property or land tax, without showing any conviction on the matter.
One very strong theme was that government spending is out of control, causing inflationary pressures because we have to borrow overseas. Some talked of raising GST and lowering income tax. IRD's John Whitehead had some really good ideas for the government. Never ever any talk of shooting the elephant in the room. Stopping the gigantic bureaucratic spend and paying down household debt down is the only way to free money up.
Throwing a bigger wad of taxpayer money in does not lift productivity. Nor does catering to racist element. Nor does forced saving.
Another strong theme was most on the show were enablers from big value firms who did little to help the 12000 plus SME mum and dad ventures that make up the bulk of of our economy.
Excellent hosting, Corin Dann. An enjoyable programme that highlighted exactly those who are pulling in the right directions and those that have their hands out.
Ditch the rental property, be more patriotic, invest in New Zealand businesses
[insert Tui ad here] Can I suggest a few to look after your hard earnt?
Any on this list?
You can stick your patriotism, I will stick to bricks and mortar in my name thanks.
It's disconcerting to realize that legislative actions this nation is preparing to take, and which will cost trillions of dollars, are based upon a view of climate that has not been completely scientifically tested.
It may not be trillions here in New Zealand, but we have a government hell bent on continuing the carbon trading farce, about to go into urgency on its latest emissions trading incarnation.
Oh, and something that other countries will not have - the hasty legislation is a racist deal stitched up with the separatist Maori Party. It even includes a further home insulation bribe for low income houses and wait for it, includes an insidious reference to that all pervasive piece of legislation that enables the separatists, the TOW. Even staunch opposers can be purchased.
I suppose I can be thankful at least one MP has not folded on the issue.
Scorched Earth bloggers see it as their civic duty to highlight the poor quality of our public figures.
The tools they choose to do this with are their voices, their blogs, their votes and their absolute belief that any public servant who is a hypocrite, who lies, misleads, obfuscates and generally plays us for fools cannot and should not be trusted with public office.
I feel the need to exercise such civic duty is long overdue.
Now, what is our illustrious leader Mr Key up to?
poked her thigh and told her she is fat, and also scolded her as irresponsible for being unemployed and relying on taxpayers to pay for another pregnancy
he told the patient that her thick thighs and diabetes could cause her to go blindHe made his points again by writing the patient, Gov. Beverly Perdue and blasting the medical board
Herr Doktor tells it like it is.
A North Carolina doctor could lose his medical license after a patient complained he made cutting criticisms, including telling her she was fat.
Non-PC maybe. Nothing wrong with telling a beneficiary to get off her fat arse, but she complains.

This intruder has appeared in one of our shallow fish ponds. How he got there is anyone's guess - the nearest running creek is 100m plus away. Looks like he might be a Green and Golden Bell Frog. Beautifully bright greens and golds.
Supposed to live no further south than Gisborne, but I've got news for you - this one's very happy 250km further south, 320m above sea level near Dannevegas, at around 60mm long (excluding legs), but maybe lonely. If he came in as an egg on a bird's foot, it is a wonder the always ravenous 15 or so goldfish didn't devour the tadpole.
Great camouflage, hard to see but he loves to sun himself during the day. Can jump 500mm from poolside if disturbed. Haven't heard him croaking yet. Pix taken hand-held at around 36x zoom, yes that is normal sized clover behind him at the pool's edge.
Quality, accountability, results. They are the only standards that matter irrespective of colour. Anything else will be inherently racist.
Cannot disagree with that, Mr Laws.
Harawira has played a key role in treaty issues, Maori language revitalisation, land occupations, Maori broadcasting and led the 2004 foreshore and seabed hikoi.
Sharples, Turia, Jackson et al continuing to preach that the only redemption for Maori is separate everything.
Unfortunately we are in the thrall of taxpayer funded professional stirrers.

A 105 [howitzer] is a big field gun. Even though they're blanks there's still a big whack in them – enough to take you to pieces if detonated
After the Armed Forces managed to kill one of their own this week, you'd be forgiven thinking that their members would be extremely aware of mishandling explosives, even if it is only a (live) blank.
Or maybe not.
Last week, he said, the suburb of Otahuhu went 24 hours without a house burglary being reported, which was "unheard of"
Well, I never thought that would occur. Mr Plod may be making a difference.
Hell, some day one might feel safe traversing the Southern Motorway past South Auckland without the door locks on.

We’ve kicked in 300 doors, arrested 400 people, seized hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of drugs and in this particular occasion we’re obviously looking pretty closely at some people’s assets
At last, steps in the right direction. Well done, Mr Plod.
Now we just need to get them through the judicial process and locked away.
Minor swaying of light fittings here in Dannevegas, but on the Palmy side of the hill, a different story. The radio station is full of people ringing.
Looks like it was 40km directly below Massey University.

new-look ETS would cost the average farmer only $3000 a year for "agricultural methane and nitrous oxide"
Key tells farmers to stop whinging
disagrees there was too much political interference over Maori Television's (MTS) bid to broadcast the free-to-air Rugby World Cup games
Key says the RWC farce is not political
he will not meet the Dalai Lama when he visits New Zealand next month
Key has seen enough of Asian dragons at APEC and caves into political pressure from China
he is not going to Copenhagen, as he says the meeting will not produce any resolution of the climate change issue
Key tells a thespian to bog off
It's been a rough week so far, wonder what the rest of the week will bring?
Green Party human rights spokesman Keith Locke said it was unlikely New Zealand universities were doing any serious research into matters that were directly related to weapons of mass destruction
Is that so? What about this then?
It just seems that the SIS is really trying to make work for itself given there are no terrorists or really dangerous people in New Zealand
So the Urerewa 17 were not dangerous terrorists then?
Murray, watch out - the SIS spooks in their inconspicuous black plastic macs are after you.
I shouldn't have been arrested for doing nothing more than protesting
Protesting uni students always deserve to be arrested.
It's a day to be remembered in the history of civil rights in New ZealandWTF? So says the human rights lawyer who just received 1/4 of the $200K payout.
Next I suppose we will be seeing this limp government and Mr Plod issuing grovelling apologies and dishing out taxpayer wedge to the Urerewa Terrorists.

Somebody wake me up and remind me just how little old New Zealand became liable for this GoreBull. So many zeroes that even the gummint wallahs cannot compute the numbers. That is $27,500.00 for every single one of us here in Godzone.
The yellow nuclear furnace that dictates our climate hopefully will still rise in the east tomorrow and irradiate this new world order bullshit.

About 160,000 of the 1.2 million people who have joined KiwiSaver are under 18 but fewer than 10 per cent actually contribute to it
KiwiSaver would get a bad reputation from people signing up their children, only to have the money whittled away by fees before they could start contributing
Reality sets in as the laws are tightened. If you, particularly grandparents, have signed your rugrats up to it, they are committed for life, whether or not they might want it post 17-18 years old.
Meanwhile, KiwiSlaver fund providers get ever richer on your tax dollar...

There's nothing as daft as a middle-aged man sucking his tummy in to run about with a woman young enough to be his daughterNothing daft about such dalliances from where I sit. Only some green-eyed copy writer sees it as 'should have stayed fat, and out of trouble'.

Yealands Estate owner Peter Yealand says about 10% of his sauvignon blanc will be sold in plastic bottles within the next two years.
He says the polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles weigh just 50g compared with a 500g glass bottle, which makes it better for the environment.
"I'm aiming to be the most sustainable wine producer in the world, and as part of our goal we look at ways that we can move towards achieving that."
Mr Yealand says a lot of energy is wasted moving heavy weight glass throughout New Zealand and worldwide.
Yealands starts bottling plonk in PET plastic bottles.
At the moment it's only sav blanc cats pee, but I suspect with the multitudes of global warmist plonkers that abound in these enlightened carbon-free days, this disease will spread.
First it was ditch real corks, next we will be forced to drink a favoured rough rouge from Chateau du Cardboard. Hell, yes - BTDT. Always quantity for effect over quality with alcohol.
Stephen Harper, the Canadian Prime Minister, had received the news that “Lady Thatcher had passed away”
Enough to kill the dinner conversation. No doubt would put Fairfacts Media into mourning his 'Iron Lady' .
Chaotic, yes. Alas, it was only a moggie, not 84 year old Maggie.
National Party ministers appear to implicitly support Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia's plan to bundle multiple contracts for Maori health, education, housing, justice and social services into integrated "Whanau Ora" contracts covering the whole spectrum of services for regional groups of Maori whanau
Another bottomless pit of affirmative action where taxpayer dollars will be poured without accountability for some future government to wring their hands over whilst trying reverse the welfare trap.
The plan is inspired by longstanding Maori ambitions for self-determination
Welcome to apartheid, New Zealand style.
Guess who will pay?

their prime concern was the future of the children at the school.
... The PSA has 27 members working at Waimokoia
Nice to see another 27 unionised about to enter the real workforce.
Really makes Friday the 13th great.

My guess is that unless he is pushed, he will stir the pot for all it is worth whilst gathering strength from the locals. I do wonder if he might will get lippy yet again giving away more of the separatists hidden agenda on the F&S in a fit of pique and expletives. After the gutless effort by the Maori Party today he will see out his full term. And get re-elected.
Nothing will come from the Nats, they are donkey deep in with the the separatists.
An aside, interesting to note that a school can be closed at a moment's notice for a political meeting.
Maori Party policies are racially divisive and will turn New Zealand into the Zimbabwe of the South Pacific
We should beware of any ethnic or religious group that seeks power
National's agreement to repeal the Foreshore and Seabed Act was a "breathtaking backflip" that would open a "festering racial sore that will infect the whole country"
increased Asian immigration and a growing trend towards multiculturalism was a "force for disintegration"
Guess who, at his usual xenophobic best, playing to your worst nightmares?

denied that he was attacking all Pakeha
Making a conditional apology on some backwater radio station does not cut the mustard.
The fact remains that this so called representative of New Zealand, in his own words, 'does not resile' from the intent of the statement, irrespective of the language used to to convey the message.
Time for you to act John Boy.
Some in the MSM could do well to limber up with at least 50 words daily in the spelling bee before they write any copy.

"I have shown poor judgement. For that I am very sorry,"
"I accept that I have failed to live up to the important principle that I have set, that politicians should always remember that they are spending taxpayers' money, and therefore must spend it carefully."
Although a mea culpa might help Rodders short term, the fact remains he is just another troughing politician. I'll believe you when politicians are no longer able to take spouses on work trips and no longer have a lifetime entitlement to subsidised travel post-employment.
He has apologised to the party for any harm be caused with his offensive language but not for the sentiment behind it
The reason we persist is because of his potential. I think he will find a way to apologise to the nation, we will help him do that
After Hone's outburst, no amount of apologies will ever fix this racist politician.
And for the last apologist.
Race Relations Commissioner Joris de Bres received more than 20 complaints about the email but said yesterday Mr Harawira's language did not breach to Human Rights Act.
the language was offensive but it was freedom of speech and not action would be taken over it.
This apologist needs to be tested for colour-blindness.

You see, last night was the final dress rehearsal for the Alison Quigan show at Centrepoint and open to the paying public. From their promo:
These women have sung it all! Christenings, weddings, funerals, they’ve seen them all come and go – the good, the bad and the downright ugly.
But then a new priest is introduced to the parish. Good looking, but a priest – and therefore off limits. He wants a new choir – he wants something to impress the Bishop… and these gals aren’t it.
Without telling you the plot, an aptly named entertainingly funny show as the choir explores their various talents leading up to Christmas. I went along with a large work group - all were well entertained.
More detail and ticket link here. Opens tonight, goes to 19 Dec.

"White motherf***ers have been raping our lands and ripping us off for centuries and all of a sudden you want me to play along with their puritanical bullshit."
Nice one Hone.
It is not for the Maori Party to decide his fate. There can only be one outcome and that should be mandated by the wuss that is our PM.
Either Hone goes or the coalition goes.
Levy? Like hell, it is yet another bloody tax. Call a spade a spade, not some euphemism.

The issue I take out of it is, like JC says, bringing the spend down. JC is possibly suggesting lift GDP so the spend drops to around 30%.
My take is gut the spend by implementing a proper tax schedule and stop tinkering at the edges with likes of CGT. As one loophole is closed, another will open. CGT is already covered and a rental business is like any other business.
The NATs have no intention of reducing spend, they have said all along tax changes must be fiscally neutral. Therein lies the problem. A worldwide recession opportunity to gut government spending on all fronts has slid through their hands.
A comment I have just made over at HP on the TVNZ7 Economy program.
Many young Pacific offenders in South Auckland are "chameleons" who attend church with their family the morning after committing a crime
Just following in their parents well rehearsed footsteps.
Young people who offend are chameleons. They change," she said."Young people, by definition, make mistakes. Adults, by definition, need to mentor and support them through those mistakes.
I well remember. Monday to Saturday mentoring gave the neighbour's mums and the kids the bash after their males fuelled up at the Glen Eden/Kelston trough or New Lynn/Avondale Flying Jug, then turned out in their Sunday best to atone, ever ready for another week. Hypocrites the lot of them.
Life goes on.

I think it's better to try and get some agreements
Agreements? No, he doesn't mean a new F&S law, he means to use the threat of non-repeal to bargain with the separatist Maori Party pawns.
the act would remain in place until an acceptable alternative was worked out in conjunction with coalition partners the Maori Party and iwi leaders
A real Judas, selling out NZ. One law for all is the only option.
the poll result showed the need for the referendum's education campaign, as the public were not yet engaged in discussion about it
Oh, yeah? Ask anyone outside the beltway how long they have been discussing MMP and whether they need more education on its ills.
There has been no opportunity for the public to be educated about it, and until that happens, a poll like this is not going to be a true indicator of people's views
Education? We don't need no education! Joe Voter knows exactly how democracy has been rorted for the last decade and a half by the Greens, Winston and one-man vanities.
It's going to be a good week, when the first article I clap my eyes on in the Herald is this.
Take your MMP and shove it!

Is it legal for an employer to pay non-unionised staff a different rate for the same job? If not so, in which act is that law written?
