    prime ministers will do what prime ministers do

    So just as" boys will be boys " the same logic applies to holders of the highest office in the land? Is that your argument? really?
    So us mere mortals are powerless in the face of evolutionary rules? dreamt up by the likes of a national party shill like you?
    Really motherfucker?

    Karl du Fresne

    Man! does he just sit in splendid isolation writing that shit?
    he needs an ayahuasca cleanse immediately

    look at the data, listen to experts and question what you know.

    Sound advice but it might be beyond some of those people. They have a soapbox and something resembling an audience. And thats a drug (getting high off the sound of your own voice)

  • Legal Beagle: The law to make it easier…, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    Bryce Edwards tells us about the smoke not the fire in “Exhibit 2” as he calls it.

    Grant Robertson vs the Chief Statistician

    So someone just decided to include 10000 soldiers in the employment list? And changed classifications for self-employed just because?
    The statisticians fucked up on this, not the politician.
    Jeez cant some people get anything right?
    Or is that broad brush just too tempting to wave around.
    Self interest abounds, christ I’m getting very tired and bored with anyone who just sits on their arse dreaming shit up, manufacturing outrage. Get a proper job, you know where you get home tired and dirty from physical toil or…look after the kids, do some house work or...
    Just fuck off.

    reduce the mathematical possibility

    its all fine until one day the odds dont work in your favour.

    But, in this post-9/11 world, shouldn’t all lost property at airports just be destroyed by the bomb squad?

    And anyone who questions the incumbent authorities will be shoot at dawn.
    So how many more decades can these incumbents string us along with that line?
    Its a post-barbarian world indeed.

  • Up Front: Dear Dudebros, in reply to steven crawford,

    they perceive themselves

    Self perception is a funny, as in peculiar, thing. Its too often totally unreliable, especially if you do something dumb but cant admit it to yourself. One doesnt have to look to hard to see that in action.
    Self inquiry, with a good dose of honesty, and someone else around who will point out your BS is probably more fruitful. Real introspection is hard thats why most people dont want to do it. Shame, cause we need it now more than ever.

    Dont take it personally, but in my experience, the male of the species is crap at that. Thats not a rule, just an observation.

    One thing that baffles me why are rugby players prone to being complete shit gibbons? Play your game, go home. Whats difficult about that.

    Great observations Emma.

  • Hard News: "Meth contamination": the…,

    quite a few real estate agents setting up a side-business in meth-testing. It’s a shocking industry.

    WTF! Is this industry just full of scum sucking shit bags and moronic self serving thugs. Is the mafia giving seminars on how to line your own pockets first now?
    And some section of the govt must have a hand in this. If not financial, then by allowing this bullshit to go on.
    There should be a moral panic, not about this. But about the total lack of any kind of morals in the upper portions of our increasingly pyramided society.

  • Hard News: On the Clark candidacy, in reply to Matthew Hooton,

    outrageous because it delegitimised historic grievances

    Is that a word? delegitimised? So she twisted words to suit her own goals. Wow!
    It has a great history this kind of behaviour, what more can I say.

    I think this may have something to do with the fact that the place of Maori in New Zealand doesn’t really fit into Clark’s European social democratic outlook.

    Oh really? You think because of her upbringing and life experience, as defined by you, would be a blind spot in her ability to understand another’s way of looking at life specifically Maori? Um.. she was born here.. dont know if it counts for much in your world.

    In contrast, I think a conservative provincial Catholic farmer like Bolger can think “so what you’re talking about is your connection with the land, family values, spirituality and property rights”

    While his teeth clacked.
    Got worse when he drank.
    Dont play partisan games please.
