    nostalgically pogoing to Citizen Band

    Yeah thats funny 'cause them and punk were uneasy bedfellows.
    I just wish they're paid me more, no misty eyed nostalgia for me.
    And the dumb arses went to Oz of all places, when they found NZ too small and wanted to spread their musical wings. A holiday would have been a better option.
    But ya know bridge... water ... etc...

  • Polity: Decrypting “social investment”,

    I get a sense of weary resignation reading this post, is that me?
    Why does this govt abuse written communication like this?
    “The most at risk” are always going to be the poor.
    “social investment”?
    Could we get a living wage FFS…Annual wages rises in line with inflation?
    What happened to them?
    Why has everything that took decades to work out gradually disappeared. For those not interested in being an “entrepeneur”
    And the “global economy” is not an answer, its an excuse…
    All words out of some peoples mouths are spin, and thats lying to suit one's own end's.

  • Hard News: Crowded houses, in reply to izogi,

    One thing that’s confused me over John Campbell’s reporting yesterday and tonight, though, is why people are reportedly being charged absurd amounts for emergency accommodation…. then “loaned” thousands of dollars to cover its use for a matter of days, then being required to pay it back, when they’re supposedly already eligible for social housing.

    Its called a money-go round! On this fairground attraction you can feast on the illusion that everyone is making money and it will last forever WWWeeeeeeeee!

    Except the people being screwed over of course... but they will never be able to afford to play this game anyway cause they're, yes you guessed correctly, POOR
    WOOHOO!

  • Cracker: Breaking the Silence, in reply to Marc C,

    Phewww there some reading there.

    Spin, misrepresentation, manipulation, intimidation, obfuscation and censorship, some from government ministers, some internal, from management, but also peer pressure,

    That about sums it up.Yet it is dressed up as science. An abuse of the word, and a beacon for what not to do...
    It feels as if it needs a grade and comment... C- Can do better

    don’t think a ruling body of such wise people would be a good idea

    Damian has said it was a throwaway line. but onward...
    Um how can you tell if someone, anyone has wisdom that will be applicable to running the world as we know it.
    Well they wont, easy answer. Its always going to be a guess, informed guess is the best we get.
    Govts really got a kick upstairs because a portion of the worlds population got sick of being screwed over by the power possessing being in Europe at the time and they could go to a new world and start a new system. We no longer have that luxury.
    So whats the way forward?
    Is there one?
    Funny thing! At a time when we need cooperation on a large scale and some selflessness and humility individually. A philosophy of selfishness and arrogance gains a foothold in the minds of not just our leaders but a large fraction of the population.
    Yep If there is a mighty & gracious being looking on in the fabric of space time, besides pissing itself in mirth, must be wondering" WTF! When I get my hands on that Ayn Rand....."
    And I'd rather take my chances with scientists informing decisions
