But George , through empathy and tolerance and all that middle eastern spiritual my guide to living shit that the guys in dresses tell us about on xmas day..
WTF are you talking about? Is this a mildly homophobic comment, or a lame attempt at humour?
I would have thought it would be people standing up to those making the excuses. And not tolerating those in positions of influence or power who stand quietly beside those who are making the excuses.
ust so long as we can find some way not to hold this prick responsible for his actions - much like that poor misunderstood Veitch chappie. Right, boys?
How do we get it through their heads - them, their apologists, and the pricks in the media who are willing to put their names to excuses, that it's not ok.
Although Hal did once storm through to have words after I'd played 'Let the Music Play' by Shannon one too many times.
This is probably an opportune time to point towards a very good Shannon/Feist mashup.
I knew this Government would be good for satire. I had no idea it would be this good. They're writing it for us, literally.
Craig, Sacha, put it away, please. It's getting embarrassing.
JLM, I understand the need to contain risk, and act in accordance with the precautionary principle. But it needs to recognised that not all risk can be eliminated, and that acceptable low levels of risk do exist. I think that this would actually strengthen the position of the Greens with regards to toxic and bioaccumulative chemicals, which are in the field and environment, and are sickening and killing New Zealanders.
But what's this Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill they've sprung out of nowhere? Screwing over tenants in favour of landlords again...?
They're putting the RTA through urgency? Have I heard you right?
Ditto on natural health regulation.
Oh and when Kedgley gets on the anti-vaccine bandwagon, I want to kill her. Seriously. This is one area where her precious waving away of the evidence is harmful and even lethal.
It's a pity, and fucks me off, because the Greens have a lot of useful things to say about toxic chemicals, which are a major health and workplace issue. It deserves a credible spokesperson.
So, no rail for Auckland, because national will build a dirty great road in the way.
What major cities use trains anyway? Auckland has no need of such technology!
How is this... branding GM as evil?
Or is it something else, like nerve-gassing babies and little puppy dogs??
There are certainly plenty in the Greens who act that way - they talk as if GE technologies threaten the existence of the planet. They're reactionaries, and are prone to making claims which are just not supported by any science. And then there are others like Jeanette Fitzsimons who make more limited and supportable claims.
It's strange, considering their experiences on the other side of the equation relating to climate change, where they argue that a great majority of scientists can't be wrong, and that their opponents cherry pick data and studies which do not mean what they think they mean.
A Kedgley is defined as the number of stale McDonalds hamburgers needed to fill a 4 km long three lane road tunnel
I thought it was the weight of genetically modified McDonald's hamburgers required to make a 10 year old obese. Are you sure you're talking about metric Kedgleys?
