Motives can be pretty simply, ego & money.
What was written on the computor after the blood lust rage of killing five members of a family? = Ego.
With eveyone dead where does the estate go? = Money.
Who could do such a thing? = Psycopath
But of course I'm wrong as I have been all along.
Looking over them again. Those lists are almost camp, so brash (not Don of course) as if to say "Wham bam I am a Man".
The words that were never said or at least never heard "I shot the prick".
On a T-shirt coming soon.
For me in that call, Davids clarity (fall out of character) of the last four numbers were telling. This under the breath utterance fits totally with my impression of events.
"Though to be fair, it looks like both Key and Goff have decided to STFU ..."
I therefore expect the an announcement by the Police.
I kinda get being a man and being an adult confused. Although I see from these lists, I was a man long before I was an adult.
"I'm in favour of representative democracy, I don't want to vote on everything"
You don't have too. A Citizens Council (like Jury service - but I give a sh!t about this) can be schooled up on proposals and vote on the options from there. This paticipatory option empowers the general public to decide and gives the best oppertunity for inform democratic decision making IMHO.
Here in Christchurch of course the Council is developer, banker, and an anticompetitive business operator.
Ellerslie Garden show was purchased after putting the local private garden show out of business (a sum not disclosed). $17Mil for failed developers & $17Mil for the Tram to nowhere. Market rents (but not standards) for the Council flats.
"Mr 3.6 % is like Beelzebub" Tail wagging the dog, again.
He'll have some extra glue on it today.
A mate of mine in his early 20s used to wear a toupee. Playing Rugby with head gear on, just to keep the locks down.
Thankfully a few boys started to shave their heads and he got the courage to bear it all.
As I've said before, Michael Laws is to Paticaptory Democracy what Adolf Hilter was to Representative Democracy.
Great systems tweeked and twisted to achieve their outcome. More education & information is required for it to work, but then, whatever the out come the decisions are those put forward by Laws. Classic lose lose situation.
