How to stop ramraiding teens

one school district in Missouri, who have made a willing decision to bring back "physical force" as a punishment for unruly students, ... for "correcting student behaviour".

 

Like it or not statistically, violent behavior in teens has increased in direct proportion to the removal of corporal punishment - where it still exists such as Singapore teen crime, vandalism & violence is almost non existent. 


Nothing wrong with 6-of-the-best or a nun's two inch leather strap.

Long missed here in NZ, parents are thanking the school board.

Of ablaut reduplication and green little men

 


I do wonder if the same rules apply to the mash-mish of te mow-ree pidgin so prevalent in these troubled times?

Council wallah out for drive gets his boots muddy.

Far North mayor John Carter went to check the slips on Friday morning and thought they looked bad

Like as if the on-site contractors who have to clean up the need more council and NZTA wallahs in hi-viz lurking at their job-site for the next year.  Yes, on SH1 there's another large underslip, 15x overslips, the Mangamuka Gorge is going to be closed again. Possibly forever.  

I'm sure a drone snapshot of the road / flyover of the slips would be of more use.  That only needs one person on site.  Hell, the Mayor might even get such footage posted on the council website to show what state the road is actually in.  And a regularly updated timeline showing progress during the repair.

After all we live in the Wuhan pox days of Zoomed calls and unwanted co-governance with a dose of 3-waters driven government holding pre-meetings online over doomed MP's.

Maybe the same council website might have some real-time information on all slips and outages around the district for long-suffering ratepayers who pay his over-blown wages.  At present such info is found out via word-of-mouth.  And if you do not have access to Fakebook via their closed local information groups, you're stuffed for info during such events.

When I drove the same highway a couple of weeks ago, the road was noticeably slumping in multiple places, with large 750+ mm slumps visible, just waiting for a small rain event such as we're enduring right now.  And this is only 200mm over a couple of days, not your typical cyclonic normality of 100mm an hour over 3-5 days.  Meanwhile both SH1 and SH10 have flooded access further south and are often blocked.

It is high time the same governmental wallahs made real efforts to future proof road access to the Far North.  A tunnel would be nice, a decent road even better!  We're only talking about a 400m high hill!

The Mayor shouldn't need to get his gumboots muddy!

The cover up continues...

 It related to a Wellington-based staff member travelling to a member’s electorate office for the purpose of team building and assisting the wider team. This is normal practise for many members when establishing a new team which has staff dispersed in different regions

So the union bullies were despatched from Trevor's head office to his office, no doubt at the behest of the 9th floor, to sort out a new MP.  And he had the temerity to complain about being made to pay their expenses?

The cover up re misuse of funds is in.  'Establishing a new team' is word soup for knocking the rookie into line.

As we also know via Cindy's utterings in recent days, he'll be further subjected to 'wellbeing' reducation.  Oozing no doubt with copious lashings of 'kindess' as the matter is put to bed.

Not for you!

to be eligible for a First Home Grant or First Home Loan, applicants must not currently own property or land, although this does not include ownership of Māori land

Seen today in my meanderings.

Another rule not available for those with ancestry of that of a pure evil coloniser.

CCP all hot air

 


CCP is nowhere near the action.  Threats but full of hot air whilst the US exercise freedom of navigation nearer to The Republic of Taiwan. via here.

Roosters in the hen house



JP excels yet again in the hen house as he attempts to transition a bigoted Trumpian rooster into an egg-layer.

Thieving New Zealand government raises taxes yet again

 Some may split hairs and call it an ACC levy which is added to vehicle registrations.  In my view it is a compulsory impost on me which is extracted to government coffers, therefore it is a tax.

Anyway, went to do the usual extraction of my hard earnt dollars online to pay said rego for said bit of paper.  Paper reminder came out a week or more ago via snail mail at $195.08 online, due 1 July.  When the better half got to paying it online today we see that the rego will now cost an extra $10.35.  

After joining the queue of the damned on hold at NZTA, listening to a vile noise purporting to be music, we've found out Cindy has raised ACC taxes and you will pay.

NZTA says nothing to with them, it's ACC's problem and ring them.  NZTA will not honour their original paper bill.

Thieving bastards!

You only had one job

Department of Corrections blames the size of the organisation and the busy nature of prisons for misconduct allegations being missed

Trouble is, like the Minister of Plod, too busy to do their only job.

And in other news, the colonised in Kaikohe think that a street march will stop rampant gang crims in their all-out turf war.  Meanwhile the citizens of their ilk continue to condone gang scum.  Yeah, right!

Meanwhile our illustrious leader who is overseas on an extended jolly doesn't miss the US tragedy selling arms control to the world via talk shows, all while JafaLand gangs continue to shoot at each other in their daily pursuits of turf and criminal action.

Life in a pinless vacuum

The only climate battles were strategic quiet shots in the inner city Teal Seats between the Gucci wives and the Liberals who said “me too”. None of this played out in public and won the Liberals a single vote in battler-land.

Thus the Liberals ran chicken down the left lane on the freeway — in the same direction as the climate bully bandwagon — because they thought that the media wouldn’t hit them as hard, and it was true — but that didn’t help at all. It’s in the hate filled fantasy rants of ideology when the winning “Deplorable” moments occur. The smug lefty zeal looks ugly to the public, but it was never exposed. The punters didn’t get reminded of the elitist disdain for their electricity bills. Extremists didn’t glue themselves to footpaths or dance naked in the street shrieking. This was not an ugly vitriolic election, it was a nothing campaign. But that just left a pinless vacuum the green fantasy balloon grew to fill.

The whole climate facade is built on feel-good branding and fashion, and the Libs just joined the advertising — as Matt Canavan says – we effectively legitimized the green agenda when we signed up for Net Zero.

 From the esteemed JoNova.

A pinless vacuum indeed.  The same vacuum present here as te lingo Luxon and Act fail to tell the electorate what they really think of the climate scam.

A warning for LabourLite

The blood is flowing freely across the ditch in Oz.  Scotty from Marketing Liberals have been routed, independents are in en-masse and Albo the last man standing sneaks in as newly minted PM.

Some are really pissed.  Resident loud-mouth cockatoo Barnaby unleashes:

“So it’s almost a sense of, if you vote Labor you’ll vote and stick there, and we know you will because of party discipline. If you vote Nationals or Liberals you’ll vote and stick there. And then, ‘We have a right in the middle to go whichever way we want whenever we like.’ That is just so, so selfish.”

Seems the voters have had enough of fence sitters from the long-standing two party system.  They want real change and representation for their community, not career pollies looking after themselves in Canberra troughs.

In New Zealand, LabourLite would do well to heed this result.  Here we cannot distinguish between the separatist racists in the current government tossing democracy aside for rampant apartheid with copious servings of nepotism garnished with corruption and the new kid on the block, te reo Luxon.  The two parties are on the same fence, with the same offerings of zero change.

"it rolled over onto its side"

 



Apparently a couple of Ukrainian Neptun missiles slotted the Russkie pride of the Black sea fleet.  Distracted the fire control and whammo!  A cruiser with a 500+ crew.

That will annoy the madman Putin.

Jacinda loses the room

 Jacinda reckons 'we will not be defined by this'.  Jacinda's goons led by Cuddles Coster may do your bidding today, but long term it is game over.

It happened on your watch, a lot of the 'team of 5 million' do not like your continual lies, inaction and non-delivery.

Today, you may win this battle clearing Trev's lawn but you will not win the war.  Your ignoring the protestors for three weeks has amped this protest to the max. 

Protesting in New Zealand has turned and redefined.   We thought a few years ago that anti-apartheid protests were a bit more physical than the average Kiwi might desire.  Future protests will be more in your face and destructive like BLM domestic terrorists overseas.

Your ball.
