    So the bad bugger used NZ post instead of email. Which must be really annoying for the GCSB.

    I suspect but don’t know that McCarthy type processes are already in place – we know that they spy on dissidents in NZ, and do various illegal or probably-illegal things to gain information and reduce their influence. The question is how far does that go.

    Mega upload is good and properly an example, made of.

    The state had no business in our homes, in our communications, in our minds. That was what we meant by freedom.

    It seems like a lifetime ago that protesters where out defending there right to smack there children. That ground swell of grunting about nanny state taking our God given rights , Or some such thing.

    Today’s Tremain in the ODT is an interesting cartoon, on many level’s … supposedly showing Key trying not to catch whatever is ailing Abbot ...

    He's trying to avoid the bleeding hypocrisy, that is the Austrailan refugee detention centers.

    Meanwhile back in Syria, Assad continues to drop barrel bombs on civilians.

    It is dissapointing that this sort of behavior by the Syrian dictatorship has largely been forgotten, just becouse there is a more compelling atrocity going on simultaneously in the same place. I have wondered how the Islamic state and the Syrian government get along. But more importantly, I wonder how the five eyes nations negotiate access to drop there own bombs on the territory.

    The other version seemed a little inappropriate, considering what this discussion was originally about.

    I meant to say, before I mangled my last comment, is that it’s embarasing to have a Primeminister who partronised the Iraqi people by making grand statements about sending a small group of New Zealand soldiers, and I paraphrase; to show the Iraqi army how to have the balls to fight ISIS. He must think that winning the rugby World Cup is more awesome than it really is.

  • Hard News: Haphazardly to war,

    I can’t honestly call myself a pacifist. If someone attacks me, I’m going to fight back, with possibly lots of velocity. I am however, opposed to going out and attacking people. that includes really bad people like psychopathic pedophiles, or war criminals.

    We as a nation are not actualy being attacked. So, I’m in Geovanni’s camp here. Let’s think about the actual victims and use our military to try to protect them in some way.

    One thing that really pisses me of, is that our primeminister patronizes the Iraqi army by sending 16 military personal to , I paraphrase: stand them to man up to those scumbag war criminals.Garth Mcvickar from the sensible sentencing needs to be briefed on all this vigilantly action.

    I thought it interesting that the conceptual arts arrived around the same period as conceptual physics started to be known to the general public.
