(Un)Super Dorkland

No Maori direct representation – OMGFG. But I guess that’s what happens when the Hall Monitor ACT (Association of Cunts and Tyrants) Local Govt Minister gets involved. The largest Polynesian City in the world will have a white middle aged male council – mark my words.

Could I possibly ask WTF is the point of a Royal Commission, thousands of submissions and the Govt makes it’s own daft policy on this?

Good luck Auckland you are going to fucking well need it.

Memo to Auckland, don’t take us down with you please, we are actually all right down here.

Angernui – the town with no h(ope).

Following on from my simple request to the Mayor of Whanganui to reconsider his council’s decision to correct the spelling of the cities name how does a Mayor respond?

Sir

thank you for you time in writing, but our council has made….

Yours …

Don’t be so bloody hopeful, this is the entire text of the response from the Mayor.

You’re an idiot. Go lecture someone else with your stupidity.

Nothing else. No yours….

Very classy Michel aws, not bad for a Mayor that can’t spell it’s name correctly, or is this what you could expect from a very angry confused life long moaning politician.

So sorry Whanganui, you good people deserve so much more.

it is Whanganui – no debate.

Open letter to Mic( )ael Laws and more or less the whole city of Whanganui.

Sir,

some time ago when I was a young ideological student in the late 1980’s I watched with absolute horror at the country and it’s frenzy to keep the Homosexual Law Reform Bill from passing. So fervent was the opposition, that nearly 80% of the country was opposed to the bill, hundreds of thousands of people signed the petition – so impassioned was the opposition they even managed to get Mickey Mouse to sign the petition. This was a moral campaign.

Skip a couple of years watching a Spike Lee movie. The most memorable moment in the movie to me was when the father was teaching the son that the most important thing in the world is respect. Respect for fellow human beings leads to greater understanding and empathy. Despite all of the racial mayhem going on around them, the father was taking the time to teach the child this most wonderful and basic of human traits – respect.

Fast forward to Wanganui 2009. Same impassioned people, same fervent opposition, to yet another seemingly non issue. I care not one bit for your opposition to the name of the city being returned to it’s correct spelling. I care that the somewhat ‘majority’ of the people have been conned into thinking that disrespecting the local indigenous people is a good state to be in.

It is very simple, the name of the River and the city includes the H, without it, it is meaningless, further it is disrespectful. It says, we know this is how it should be spelt, but we don’t care, your language and mana whenua mean nothing to us. Just as Micael Laws without the H is meaningless, so is Whanganui.

I always mistook you for someone with a level of reason and intelligence, however seemingly backing oneself into a corner with no way out often results in intrenched opinions at the detriment of rational debate. The respect that I once held for you would easily be found again, if you showed the local IWI that very same respect and gave them their name back. Hundred year old injustices don’t need to be perpetuated in New Zealand 2009. Just as our elected officials took the less popular approach and bought Homosexuality into the public realm with dignity, as should the elected officials in the case of the correct spelling of the city Whanganui

Thank you very much for your time sir.

Mr Smith you naughty bugger

So not only did he turn up to a Select committee meeting and essentially gag the Chief Executive of a Government Department, he has been found to have lied to Parliament and hence the people, well allegedly.

Full story here on Stuff

What a complete pillack, so typical of the big balls “I can do anything’ attitude pervading this current government.

This along with Brownlee failing to know the correct procedures in Parliament, one does wonder what the fuck these wankers were doing for those 9 years in opposition – for it certainly wasn’t taking notes and learning anything.

Could make you vomit

peace_my_arse

Anyone spot the irony of this image?

If I was the organisers of the Parihaka Peace Festival, I’d be mighty pissed off that my banner was at the top of a page that was giving approval of the bombing of innocent men women and children.

It really fucks you off to think that even in NZ there are so many people with so much hate in their hearts and minds. When you honestly and truly believe statements like “They are not bombing civillian populations” then you have a warped and disturbed view of who and what are innocent civilian populations. And if you can reduce the whole nasty shit fight to a leftist UN cock-up, then you need to see a doctor quick.

Because if the image of a dead child’s arm emerging from the rubble of a house bombed full of innocent people doesn’t make you sick and bloody angry, you are unworthy of the title member of the human race – you are nothing more than a beast. I have two boys, 3 and 5 and this image makes me sick to my core – I still can’t look at it, even when I was uploading it.

There are no winners here, everyone looses.

Comments are off, as they will only piss me off. Head over to the blind and stupid pro Israeli Kiwiblog to put up with their vile bullshit on this topic.

Anyone keep count

Remember this is the party that was going to give you money in your back pocket, the party of tax cuts.

hmmm

Workers to pay large increase in ACC levies from next year
6:14PM Tuesday Dec 16, 2008

The average worker will have to pay a 21 per cent increase in their ACC bill next year, rising from $658 a year to $799, ACC Minister Nick Smith said today.

So they’ve promised sod all in tax cuts with one hand and with the other hand, middle finger firmly raised they’ve already started taking.

Nice, remember you voted these wankers in – nice one, felling smug now are we, BTW how much is left in your back pocket?

Newstalk ZB you disgust me

A man picks up a knife and chases two teenage boys from outside his house, he subsequently stabs and kills one of them, and is eventually convicted of Manslaughter. Yet Newstalk ZB has continually portrayed this man as the victim, and went so far as to interview someone close to him, and giving that person the ‘call of the day’ award.

The man is a convicted killer, he unlawfully took the life of a young boy, the whole bloody case is tragic, but there is a family out there without their son for his actions.

I can’t help but feel if the murder was dark skinned and they were convicted on the same day – oh that’s right they were. Where was the interview with their family or close friends of the Mob guys going down on the same day, asking how that family is doing? This interview with the ‘close friend’ should never have gone ahead, but even worse, it should not have taken the line that he’s the victim.

Well done to Campbell Live tonight. It was a touching interview with the mother of the boy killed. It was sad and depressing, but very well done. Shame she wasn’t evil and lawless, like they would like us to believe. The mother signed the petition making parents accountable for tagging, she had reprimanded her boy for tagging a table, she was a woman with boundaries, but a child who was like all children rebelling and breaking laws. Not something that should be your death penalty.
