  • Hard News: Vision and dumbassery, in reply to mark taslov,

    I see the “asshole” you were referring to was not the “asshole” … called me. Perhaps too many “assholes” being thrown around, perhaps too many assholes

    we all need reminders of the
    Eternal Riddle of the Sphincter
    er, Sphinx:

    "A thing there is whose voice is one;
    Whose feet are four and two and three.
    So mutable a thing is none
    That moves in earth or sky or sea.
    When on most feet this thing doth go,
    Its strength is weakest and its pace most slow."

    we’re only human…

  • OnPoint: "Project SPEARGUN underway", in reply to mark taslov,

    I’ve been looking back for it for days, but it seems to have vanished, and I can’t find any other reference to this on the net.

  • Hard News: Decision 2014: Where to watch…, in reply to Joe Wylie,

    Cockneyed rebel...

    ...the Alf show, about the annoying alien, where he revealed to his host family that all along he’d been nothing but a sock, onto which they’d projected their fantasies. Initially they refused to believe him, but once he insisted they turned nasty, even stomping on him for having deluded them.

    We don't do things
    by 'alfs round here
    mate...

    100% all the way
    the Ultra-V, that's us
    straight up!

  • Hard News: Time to Vote,

    They walk among us...
    A new morning,
    bah humbug!
    It's perhaps the crappest Christmas yet,
    I didn't get any of the presents I wanted!

    Here we go then, another 1,094 days to look forward to
    where the only hope on the horizon, is the rising sun...

    I do hope they will be carefully checking all votes, for multiples, and other irregularities, etc when they reconcile the various booth roll books into one...

    How would they know if people's easy vote cards had been misused?
    after all, all they'd have to do is lie, no biggy on top of electoral fraud.

    The Press didn't help yesterday with a page 3 retraction of voting disinformation on Friday:

    No ID required
    In Friday's Press, in the A8 story 'Remember to make your vote count' it stated you need identification to vote today. You do not. Anastasia Turnbull of the Electoral Commission said: "You do not need identification to vote in New Zealand, and never have. Taking your Easyvote card makes it quicker and easier, but you can still vote without it. You'll just need to give the issuing officer your name and address so they can find you on the roll."

    I'm thinking some lackwit out there will decide to go to a couple of booths, just as long as they fit the demographic of whomsoever they are purporting to be...
    ...it's the only explanation I can think of for Central Chchch!

    The big fear I got from the few Joe-National voters I have met lately, was the looming Capital Gains Tax Fear - Baby Boomers worried about losing out on some of their return on their parents' house, in a nutshell - better open taxation than tax by stealth in other ways, in transactions like that everything is quantifiable, Key has got back in by gesturing hypnotically at some insubstantial looking mist in the distance, smiling to the camera "she''ll be right, trust me!"
    ...that and the Status Quo fan club!

    and just before I go and burn some toast, and worry about the crows gathering on the power lines, and other omens...
    - didn't y'all think David Cunliffe looked the most relaxed you have ever seen him on camera, virtually since taking office, when he conceded with his well crafted capitulation.
    He finally looked alive...

  • Hard News: Time to Vote, in reply to WH,

    a 1970s’ vintage left wing text

    sounds like Saul Alinsky’s ’Rules for Radicals’
    a community organisers handbook

    the job of the organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a ‘dangerous enemy.’” According to Alinsky, “the hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate [the organizer’s] credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation."

    He threatened to organise a ‘Piss-in’ at O’Hare airport one time:

    According to Alinsky, once again the threat alone was sufficient to produce results. In 'Rules for Radicals', he notes that this tactic fell under two of his rules: Rule #3: Wherever possible, go outside the experience of the enemy; and Rule #4: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

    Allegedly Drone-Lord Obama was an adherent to these methods in his earlier incarnation as a community organiser in Chicago, and his 2008 campaign was influenced by Alinsky’s teachings…

    [edit] unfortunately I think Key & Joyce may have read it too...

    The after life is after this one after all...

    ...after all is said and done,
    beyond the setting sun,
    lies an occident
    waiting to happen...

    PARTY VOTE Bad water!

    Because profit is more important than the clean water that a nation depends on. Sounds familiar.

    Subliminal truth in the placement of a sticker...
