Actions speak louder than words

was never just for Maori people
Really?  LOL!

All-comers are welcome

Your record says otherwise.  Every second utterance is about "our people" and the ingrained anti-everything attitudes toward colonising "white mofos".  

All of which, like mythical swamp monsters, can be fixed with a large dose of palm greasing under the culture of entitlement and via never ending full and final settlements.

It's never too early for a Tui.

Wonder how long before this bit of sci-fi is copied and used on the West?

In the not so distant past military hardware was hardened against EMP threats.  Even to the point of testing whole planes.  Not now as the nuke threat has hit the back shelves with all the wowsers about too scared to hit the button.  Buying off the shelf has been the way to go in recent decades.

The endless savage cuts to military spending everywhere has left those that fight the good fight in times of dire need with non-hardened COTS equipments.  Which as proven this week, is rendered useless in the face of a short blast from such a device, long touted to be from the realms of sci-fi fantasies.  

No need for a dirty nuke anymore, just hitch the EMP device to a semitrailer and tow it through the main centres of a country.  Instant and total comms failure.  Dead as a doorknob, including the Internet.

Won't be long before it is copied and used against the West by some crank state hell bent on our destruction.  And there's plenty of them, even ones that have free trade agreements with us.

No physical damage, just the electronics utterly rooted, but easily replaced.  I can well imagine a Mr Huawei making a leisurely call post one of these being deployed through the streets of NYC or around 1600 Pennsylvania.  Who's knows, he just might be behind the deployment to tout for business.

The price of military electronics is about go sub-orbital.

Good and bad news

Really shows POAL what can be done without the deadweight millstone of a unionised workforce.

Port of Tauranga is signalling another record profit
And further down...

is frustrated at a new Maori court challenge to block plans to deepen its shipping channel

One wonders where the NZ economy might be four years down the track if we'd had a government that kept both those pesky natives and unions in their place.

I long for government that will stick to stated principles.

"a glimpse of what could be in store if National fails to come to its senses"

the Treaty of Waitangi as supreme law
schools to teach local iwi history; civic and heritage studies
all Māori to be automatically entered on to the Māori roll
Māori seats will stay until such time Māori freely choose, via a referendum

Welcome to Apartheid New Zealand.  Unfortunately, as enablers of this travesty in its quest to retain power at any cost, National has already failed miserably.

Abolishing the Waitangi Tribunal is a key demand of the Declaration of Equality campaign for equal rights. If you haven’t signed the Declaration we urge you to do so now HERE - and to encourage your family and friends to do the same. This battle for equal rights will not be won unless New Zealanders take a stand.

Reams of untruths in my letter box

Some crowd of rabid ferals from a group calling themselves FrackFree Tararua stuffed a double sided A4 sheet of untruths about the supposed dangers fracking in our letter box yesterday.  As if our great rural delivery postie hasn't got enough to do daily delivering windowed envelopes without also having to cart that claptrap to my letterbox.

I'll be using that sheet to consume more carbon the very next time I light my fire on the next chilly night.  Imagine how toasty my house might be if I could tap into one of those fracked bores.  Pity I couldn't stuff some of the frack-free fruitloops whipping up local anti-mining sentiments into the firebox as well.  Or maybe even better, a burning at the stake in the public square for out and out entertainment value.

Maybe 'reams of untruths' was stretching it, but I firmly believe in mine it, drill it, sell it!
