    This pompous ass at RSA makes me sick.
    How can the sacrifice of those who gave their lives for freedom be honoured while our own government keeps citizens cowed with misinformation and coercion? People have a right to protest, so long as it is a long way out of eyesight? It is right and proper to respect the dead, but essential we respect the living.
    Perhaps the RSA have never appreciated that as over the years they have accumulated substantial assets and then beg each year for public donations to support returned servicemen.
    Even the supposed ‘unknown warrior’ was a piece of Helen Clark populist theatre, as remains were disinterred from consecrated ground in Longueval, France to be paraded for the establishment of the Pukeahu National War Memorial. There was a time when Resting in Peace was forever.
    Nothing will cause me to lose my respect for service men and women, but my support for the RSA is taking a battering.

  3. I spend far too much time on the internet.
    I think I’ve slowly realised that the internet divides people.
    Take the invasion of Ukraine as an example.Its current,its big and has the capacity to affect everybody.
    You can see pictures,videos,reports ‘news’ and opinion saying that the leader of Russia is a terrible person committing war crimes against innocent civilians.
    The trouble is,you can see, read and hear exactly the same about the other side.
    So how do I decide which side is right?
    I pick a side and then tend to steer myself into information confirming that I’m right,self confirmation.
    I can pick a zillion websites that confirm my opinions are correct.On the internet,I talk to people who agree with me and easily ignore people who don’t.
    But so can someone who has an opposite opinion and be just as correct as me.
    Now,thanks to the internet, there are two people who are filled to the brim with information about an issue but their viewpoints are opposite to each other’s.
    But both peoples view is the right one!
    Thanks to the internet.
    TLDR? Here’s a cat video.

    • It’s far, far worse than that Mark.

      There are dark spaces on the internet to appeal to almost every person, personality type and situation and these are, or become, rabbit holes to echo chambers of insanity.

      Start with the arch-villians: Facebook.com and Google.com

      And more addictive than crack cocaine!

      Nearly everyone you see using a mobile phone is living in a rabbit warren of outsourcing of thought. Few are doing business or basic and essential communication.

    • People have been divided since the dawn of mankind, internet is not the cause but it has made the process more efficient.

      Opinions and idealogy create division, media helps spread it.
      Internet, tv, telephone, radio, newspaper, telegraph, carrier pigeon, messenger on horseback, scrolls, stone tablets, cave paintings…
      All help spread and cause division throughout our history

      In short we all need to just shut our mouths and mind our own bussiness but who are we kidding thats never gunna happen

    • So how do I decide which side is right?

      Go back to core principles, and understand.

      I could see the errors in the Covid fear porn from day one. Not because of Peter McCullough or Robert Malone or Stew Peters or whoever. I saw it from my own limited yet certain understanding of some of the the body defense mechanisms.

      We either go through life collecting and learning eclectic pieces of information, which may or may not be true, and this becomes knowledge, which may or may not be true;

      Or we go through life building foundations of understanding based on the principles that we know to be true.

      The difference actually relates to ED’s Post about “saving for the the future” and the principle of delayed gratification.
      https://ysb.co.nz/saving-for-the-future/

      The majority of people don’t like uncertainty. They do not have the metal capacity to deal with it. So they default to simplistic thinking. Having to think things through instead of an instant answer, requires delayed gratification.

      One truth, or two choices.
      “We are your arsesole source of trooth”
      – That excludes the possibility that Cindy, Doomfield and Whipkins may be wrong.

      “White people are good, Black people are bad” or “Black lives matter, Whites are thieving colonists.
      – That excludes the possibility of being one nation, and equal in opportunity and rights.

      A marshmallow now or two in 15 minutes.
      $1k in 30 days or $10k in 12 months.

      And state education and popular sayings interfere with that. “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”
      – Eat the one marshmallow now, I might be being tricked.
      – Take the $1k, you never know what tomorrow may bring.

      From Vikings post above:
      A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
      Most people are risk averse, because most people hate uncertainty.

      If option A is 50% of the choice, and option B is 50% of the choice, it is going to be one or the other.
      If option A (get vaccinated) is 95%, and option B, remaining unvaccinated is 5%. most people default to option A.

      Choosing not to make a decision, and postpone option A, is uncertainty and leads to Choice C.

      Choice A: “The vaccine are good.”
      Choice B: “The vaccines are bad.”
      Choice C: “I do not have enough reliable data to make a decision. I only have the opinions of those that have already made Choice A, and those that have made Choice B. Therefore I need to research this and come to an understanding”.

      This opens up a whole world of uncertainty, as you set out. But you can also build on prior truth and certainties, things you know to be true. And bit by bit you build new certainties. Not based on the MSM, or videos, or what others might call proof. But on your own certainty you have gained through understanding.

      Weeding out things you know are false, based on your understanding of the world. Embrace things that validate current understanding and science. On top of that we have to ask questions from experts (and those self appointed experts) to gather what they understand but more importantly how deep is that understanding. Asking questions is a good way to find out what people actually understand and what they are simple parroting.

      This is what real researchers do. State education beats intelligence out of children, teaching children what to think, not how to think.

      Knowing how to think, being able to listen and evaluate whet we hear or read against prior understanding and certainties is valuable process. Whether it be regarding Covid and the Vaccines, Climate change, Putin, or any thing else.

        • Rawiri Jensen says maori are dying of covid because they are doing it wrong! – in respect of vaccinations.

          https://www.teaomaori.news/dr-rawiri-jansen-proof-maori-were-poorly-served-on-vaccines

          Yeah right. Another Tui billboard right there.

          Maori are proportionately dying of Covid at a higher rate because:
          [1] On average they are fatter.
          [2] On average they are unhealthier
          [3] Less likely to curb activities that put their health at risk.

          They are slower about rushing out and getting the vaccine.
          This could be because of:
          [1] Suspicious of “colonist drugs”.
          [2] Vaccines not fitting with cultural values as regards health treatment
          [3] Laziness
          [4] Or a combination of all three.

          Either way, a slow uptake in vaccines has probably saved a lot of Maori lives, both with vaccine deaths and/or complications that arise with Covid infections as a result of prior immune damage caused by the vaccines.

    • Morning all, hope you enjoy the weekend where you cannot go to the movies till Monday can’t dine out or get your hair done or nails etc all will be open on Monday FFS. So is Paula Bennett supporting the National party? Has Goodfellow raised as much? He is useless at everything else but maybe he has. Honestly I don’t know why she doesn’t give it to liebour may as well they do not appear to have any noticeable difference. While that nude nut is in charge and with the Goodfellow in the chair it’s all feeling very hopeless at this stage. I certainly hope that the new Democracy party can come up with strong, willing people to stand and they garner support from the people who were not jabbed.

    • Evidently if you pop a wee bit of Fanta (yep that is correct ,you know the orange fizzy drink) on the RAT test it shows that the Fanta has covid. FFS what is going on in this world it’s all such a farce. That fellow who said in a post how ill he was.. well I am sorry but it appears that those who have the booster shot (and evidently they are pushing the 5th jab in the UK already,) are going to be far worse off than if you use natural immunity, plus the vitamins it was recommended by Doctors from around the world recommended we take, it should not be the big thing they are making it out to be.

  6. The New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union is raising the alarm over a $637 million debt write-off for university graduates, driven by inflation and funded by taxpayers.

    Union spokesman Louis Houlbrooke, who has paid off his student loan, says “While it is well-known that student loan balances do not accrue interest, it is often forgotten that balances are not even adjusted for inflation. This means student loan balances shrink in real terms every year in line with the inflation rate – effectively a taxpayer-funded debt write-off.”

    “The total value of outstanding student debt sits at around $10.8 billion*, listed as an asset in the Government books. But the real value of this debt has been eroded by high inflation – at a rate of 5.9%, the Government has effectively written off $637 million in student debt in the space of one year. That’s almost as much as the Government was planning to spend on the Waitemata Harbour bike bridge.”

    “A lawyer who graduated in 2017 and has an $80,000 student loan has had at least $9,000 in today’s money paid off by the taxpayer. The longer the graduate takes to repay their loan, the larger the taxpayer-funded debt write-off.”

    The chief executive of the financial crime investigation agency, Julie Read, said she expected up to 5 percent of government funding to be obtained or used fraudulently.

    In the 2017 financial year, that would have been worth nearly $5 billion, from the Crown’s total expenditure of $99.8b.

    “That’s still a very substantial amount of money. Enough to pay for the SFO a couple of times over,” Ms Read said.

    She said defrauding of public funds was the fault of applicants lying and some government agencies lack of oversight.

  9. I have just returned from a routine waddle to my letterbox.
    St John have sent me a thick wad of paper asking me for a donation because they need $243,022.07 to buy A NEW AMBULANCE to save the lives of New Zealanders like sweet little baby Benny who nearly drowned when he was 18 months old. No problem, worthy cause, could be me or mine that needs it etc.
    Except.
    It doesn’t say where this ONE AMBULANCE will be deployed.
    Given that there was a routine wait of an hour or two for an ambulance in Hawkes Bay pre Covid-hysteria, it seems to me we could do with one more fully equipped and staffed unit in Napier and one more in Hastings and maybe another in Central Hawkes Bay.
    Now supposing I had a spare quarter mil (it’s Lotto night🍀 and I’m not entirely selfish) what are the chances that my donation of a new vehicle resulting in calls being attended quicker – rather than enabling an existing unit to be deployed elsewhere?
    I wasn’t born this sceptical, it’s taken years of experience.

    Just over 300 hectares of the farm will be planted in pine trees which will be harvested in 2048, before a second rotation is planted.

    • Although I’m generally against wholesale conversions from pastoral farming to forestry that property is situated at Blairlogie on the road out to Castlepoint. It is very steep country prone to erosion.

      There’s an incredible amount of forestry out that way already (eg the former Crown Ngaumu Forestry block) & in this case it may well be the best use of the land.

    Misinformation: Down the rabbit hole, and back

    A month since the fiery end to the Wellington occupation, misinformation that helped fuel it is still alive and well in Kiwi communities. Alongside anti-vaccine beliefs, popular theories at the protest camp included the threat of a second Nuremberg trial, claims the Prime Minister’s fiancé is in jail and – for some – the belief Covid-19 isn’t real at all.

    So how do Kiwis fall down the rabbit hole, and how do they get out? In the first of a three-part series on 1News.co.nz and 1News at 6pm, Kristin Hall spoke to some who’ve been there. Some names have been changed to protect their privacy.

    A well-known entertainer swept up in the so-called “sting of the century” – accused of laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars for a drug importation operation – has been dealt a legal blow after a judge at the High Court at Auckland declined his bid for continued name suppression.

    The hearing to determine if his name suppression should continue had been postponed multiple times since August due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions on the judicial system. But a hearing did take place last month, and Justice Woolford’s judgment was released to the media today.

    Revealing the defendant’s name prior to trial would damage his ability to make a living as an entertainer, defence counsel Ron Mansfield QC said last month.

    “He would be reliant on a benefit if he was not able to do any work,” Mansfield argued. “That damage to his reputation would be permanent even if he was found to be not guilty of these allegations.”

  20. Oh dear, you need a policeman.
    Well they are busy at their desks looking a hardcore porn.

    Police are assessing a complaint about a doctored photo posted online by a strip club.

    The photo shows Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s face edited onto a nearly nude body.

    Calendar Girls NZ posted the photo, depicting Ardern’s head on a woman’s body wearing underwear, straps and buckles and holding a whip, to its Facebook page on Friday.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300556615/police-receive-complaint-about-doctored-photo-of-pm-used-to-promote-strip-club

    In a statement, James Samson of Calendar Girls NZ said its social media was managed by a marketing company which is entirely run and staffed by women.

    whinge and cry isall the left can do. Roll out the plods who just cost us taxpayers how much to beat people u? People who were going about their lawful business until Cindy and Trevor Hardman complained. People who were so terrible and dangerous that no MP would go out and talk to the people who pay their wages.
    People who were labelled as a river of filth by one of the most vile pieces of shit that was ever an MP.
    Did he get censored by the other MP’s or did they just agree with him.
    Arsewipes all.

    Samson said he “can only assume” the image was posted as an April Fool’s joke.

    The photo had been viewed on social media more than 150,000 times and reactions included 15 angry and two crying emojis, he said

    “I’d think that alone would suggest it is [has been] taken as a joke.”
