  • Speaker: Friday Music Guest:…, in reply to Geoff Lealand,

    As was this group in the Opotiki District in the late 1920s

    What's their game, then?

  • Speaker: The Democracy-Free Zone, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    Micrograve coven...

    ...a council in exile as such.

    we even have a surfeit of blasted heaths
    'pon which they could meet by starlight

    ...who believes not reading a document
    means it’s contents do not exist

    The pryme minster (from Hel in Lensville)
    knows well the power of magic wave
    and glamoured smile, and
    he knows not to read the words
    of power and knowledge, lightly
    lest they burn his brain
    and blight his house of cards
    and dismaying demesne...

    his dominion is only over the 'do minions'
    so our rallying call shall be
    Just Don't!

    <aside>
    Yesterday I noticed what must be advance spin for either asset sales or an upcoming Ayn Rand movie - a plane towing a sign saying 'Money is Good' also posters about town... Did I also see a poster saying 'Money is Bad'?
    What is reality?

  • OnPoint: Because Statistical Rigour, in reply to Lilith __,

    A Liddell logic...

    In a week when the Ministry of Education can describe closing schools as “rejuvenation”, I no longer expect anything to make sense.

    Yeah verily, indeed!
    It has sent an 'Alas, through the Looking Class...'

    or the the whole thing may just be more of Juvenal's biting social satire coming back to bite us (large parts of him are at the heart of 'rejuvenation') ...

    Anyway Trader Key Co is just playing the old 'create-a-big-problem-then-cut-it-back-in-the-face-of-inevitable-outrage-to-more-than-they-could-have-got-by-fair-negotiation' scam, again.

  • OnPoint: Because Statistical Rigour, in reply to DexterX,

    too down, he said cryptically...

    The answer I come up with is,
    “A change of government”.

    I too, have an answer to a change of government
    - having cast the characters,
    and spun up the angramaphone -
    the answer to
    a change of government is...
    (the very apt descriptive)...
    <sfx> drum roll</sfx>
    ventmonger

    it is after all
    the only things
    they seem to do now,
    make and sell cuts,
    cleave communities,
    disgorge hot air,
    and bile,
    arseholes...
    traders, raiders
    wheeler dealers,
    wheedlers, stealers...

    grrrr....

  • Hard News: Fox News: I know, right?, in reply to Lyndon Hood,

    showtime...

    I like how well the bunch-of-jokes-and-mockery
    followed by analytical-rant format works.

    I know, Parliament is almost there...
    They need better joke writers though!
    (and waaay more intelligent analysis....)


    caught report...
    spooky - I'd not heard of Crossfire before, but yesterday I pulled up behind a crossfire car, which I'd never heard of before either (Chrysler/Karmann apparently) - everything is connected!

  • Capture: Wellington? Well, I Would., in reply to Jonathan Ganley,

    Flights of fancy...

    I love this NAC-on-acid vision of Wellington...

    Big props!
    That's a very quaffable looking harbour
    - NAC, putting the Port in port city since 1947!

  • Hard News: "Because we can", in reply to Rosie,

    the caring government....

    Instead of wasting masses of money administering a complicated benefits system and chasing people we could spend the money helping people. ….and we could call it a transfer not a benefit.

    Where is the bus stop to this world, I want a ticket?
    What's more I reckon in that world the Gov't is freeing up all these school facilities in Chchch to create community elder care education and activity drop in centres, as they will have realised that they'll cope with the passage of the Baby Boomers better by keeping as many fit, healthy and engaged as possible - thus cutting future hospital and home care costs... win, win...

  • Hard News: "Because we can", in reply to Richard Aston,

    “Nanny State”

    I think this phrase should be subverted for use describing the braying of goats coming from the House of Parliament - watching Key wittering drunkenly on about Planet Key, goaded on by the rest of the lower fifth form bullies, was just embarrassing - can we have random breath testing in Parliament please...

    Watch and cringe...
