Have Your Say





  1. I disavow any knowledge of the lady in the bottom picture. Good morning everyone. Hope we all enjoyed the made up holiday long weekend. With all the advertising about it on all sorts of media, I am so glad we have so much money our government can waste it on making us aware what we do for Matariki. Worst government ever…



    We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse. For my grandchildren, I’d like better.
    I’d really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches.. I really would.
    I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by being cheated.
    I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car.
    And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen.
    It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog put to sleep.
    I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in.
    I hope you have to share a bedroom with your younger brother/sister. And it’s all right if you have to draw a line down the middle of the room, but when he wants to crawl under the covers with you because he’s scared, I hope you let him.
    When you want to see a movie and your little brother/sister wants to tag along, I hope you’ll let him/her.
    I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your friends and that you live in a town where you can do it safely.
    On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don’t ask your driver to drop you two blocks away so you won’t be seen riding with someone as uncool as your Mom.
    If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of buying one.
    I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books.
    When you learn to use computers, I hope you also learn to add and subtract in your head.
    I hope you get teased by your friends when you have your first crush on a boy / girl, and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap tastes like.
    May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick your tongue on a frozen flagpole.
    I don’t care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don’t like it… And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he/she is not your friend.
    I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa and go fishing with your Uncle.
    May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays.
    I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor’s window and that she hugs you and kisses you at Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand.
    These things I wish for you – tough times and disappointment, hard work and happiness. To me, it’s the only way to appreciate life.

  3. Revealed: How Kiwibuild failed Māori and Pasifika
    10:39amSource: Q and A

    New statistics have revealed the failure of KiwiBuild to increase home ownership rates for Māori and Pasifika New Zealanders.
    Figures released to Q+A with Jack Tame under the Official Information Act show just 4.8% of KiwiBuild buyers who gave their ethnicity on their application forms are Māori, and 4.4% are Pasifika.

    These figures are well below the ethnicity breakdown of the general population, which is 16.5% Māori, and 8% Pasifika.


    Asian New Zealanders, including Chinese, Indian and Korean communities, purchased 39% of KiwiBuild homes, compared to being about 15% of the general population.

    Look out for big grants and discounted houses for sale to maori.
    Yep these arsewipes are so lacking in integrity that they would do that.



  4. One day, the wife comes home with a spectacular diamond ring.
    “Where did you get that ring?” her husband asks.
    “Well, she replies, “My boss and I played the lottery and we won, so I bought it with my share of the winnings.”
    A week later, his wife comes home with a long shiny fur coat.
    Where did you get that coat?” her husband asks.
    She replies “My boss and I played the lottery and we won again, so I bought It with my share of the winnings.”
    Another week later, his wife comes home, driving a flaming red Ferrari…….You guessed it:
    Her share of the lottery winnings….
    That night, the wife asks her husband to run her a nice warm bath while She gets undressed.
    When she enters the bathroom, she finds that there is barely enough water in the bath to cover the bath plug.
    “What the fuck is this?” she asks her husband.
    “Well,” he replies, “We don’t want to get your fuckin’ lottery ticket wet, do we??”



  5. A new trough opens up.

    A new Centre of Indigenous Science has been launched at the University of Otago on the back of the Matariki holiday.

    Māori academic Associate Professor Anne-Marie Jackson (Ngāti Whātua, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Kahu o Whangaroa, Ngāti Wai) is leading the strategic development of the teaching and research aspirations of the centre over the next six months before it formally starts on January 1, 2023.

    “The Centre of Indigenous Science will be one of the first of its kind in Aotearoa, so this is an opportunity to continue to grow an academic department and scholarship based on ngā kaupapa Māori in sciences,” Jackson said.




    • Viking, Māori academic Associate Professor Anne-Marie Jackson (Ngāti Whātua, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Kahu o Whangaroa, Ngāti Wai) must be a full blooded Maori with a moniker and lineage like that.

      I note there is no acknowledgment of any European ancestry and with a name like Anne-Marie Jackson can only assume she has changed it from her original Maori name to an English name by deed poll.

      One thing reading her biography is, that she is well versed and an expert in the traditional Maori Art of Deep Troughing.



  6. So poverty kills babies despite the best advice and now the corners want us to do more.

    “The number of infants in New Zealand who die from Sudi each year is not declining and social inequities mean that the rate of Sudi is higher for babies who are Māori, or who live in areas of high deprivation,” the Ministry’s chief clinical adviser of child and youth health, Dr Tim Jellyman wrote.

    In the tragic case of baby Eli, the birthing unit offered his mum a pēpi-pod but she declined, saying she already had a bassinet at home.

    The coroner noted she was a smoker, and the midwife reminded her of the safe sleeping advice to prevent the risk of Sudi since baby Eli had been exposed to cigarette smoke during pregnancy.

    Coroner Ho said the mother declined an antenatal referral to smoke-free services, but he was sympathetic to her decision to co-sleep with her baby.

    “Motherhood is exhausting. I appreciate the circumstances in which a sleep-deprived mother, frequently woken during the night to breastfeed, might choose to have a baby in bed with her instead of placing him back in the bassinet.”

    New Zealand College of Midwives chief executive Alison Eddy said pēpi-pods needed to be available for anyone who wanted one, not only those who smoked during pregnancy.

    “Pre-term birth and low birth weight are also risk factors. People seem to forget about this,” Eddy said.

    “Sudi is linked to health and social inequity and it is experienced more by those living in poverty.

    “We need to address the root of the problem. This goes beyond us and the Ministry of Health. The whole sector and society need to be working on this to ensure all families with new babies have good housing.”

    Housing and poverty were among the issues identified in the Ministry of Health-commissioned reports released on May 31.

    Other concerns were the need for engagement with whānau, smoking in pregnancy, infants who were sick and maternal mental health.

    The need for a bicultural framework within a national Sudi prevention programme that recognised the significance and effectiveness of Māori leadership was recognised along with the need for culturally anchored programmes and safe sleep messages.

  7. Think all viruses get milder with time? Not this rabbit-killer
    The myxoma virus, fatal to millions of Australian rabbits, is a textbook example of the unexpected twists in the evolution of viruses and their hosts.

    As the Covid-19 death rate worldwide has fallen to its lowest level since the early weeks of the pandemic in 2020, it may be tempting to conclude that the coronavirus is becoming irreversibly milder. That notion fits with a widespread belief that all viruses start off nasty and inevitably evolve to become gentler over time.

    “There’s been this dominant narrative that natural forces are going to solve this pandemic for us,” said Aris Katzourakis, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Oxford.

    But there is no such natural law. A virus’s evolution often takes unexpected twists and turns. For many virus experts, the best example of this unpredictability is a pathogen that has been ravaging rabbits in Australia for the past 72 years: the myxoma virus.

    Myxoma has killed hundreds of millions of rabbits, making it the most deadly vertebrate virus known to science, said Andrew Read, an evolutionary biologist at Pennsylvania State University. “It’s absolutely the biggest carnage of any vertebrate disease,” he said.

    After its introduction in 1950, myxoma virus became less lethal to the rabbits, but Read and his colleagues discovered that it reversed course in the 1990s. And the researchers’ latest study, released this month, found that the virus appeared to be evolving to spread even more quickly from rabbit to rabbit.

    “It’s still getting new tricks,” he said.

    Scientists intentionally introduced the myxoma virus to Australia in the hopes of wiping out the country’s invasive rabbit population. In 1859, a farmer named Thomas Austin imported two dozen rabbits from Britain so he could hunt them on his farm in Victoria. Without natural predators or pathogens to hold them back, they multiplied by the millions, eating enough vegetation to threaten native wildlife and sheep ranches across the continent.

    In the early 1900s, researchers in Brazil offered Australia a solution. They had discovered the myxoma virus in a species of cottontail rabbit native to South America. The virus, spread by mosquitoes and fleas, caused little harm to the animals. But when the scientists infected European rabbits in their laboratory, the myxoma virus proved astonishingly lethal.

    The rabbits developed skin nodules packed with viruses. Then the infection spread to other organs, usually killing the animals in a matter of days. This gruesome disease came to be known as myxomatosis.

    The Brazilian scientists shipped samples of the myxoma virus to Australia, where scientists spent years testing it in labs to make sure it posed a threat only to rabbits and not other species. A few scientists even injected myxoma viruses into themselves.

    After the virus proved safe, researchers sprayed it into a few warrens to see what would happen. The rabbits swiftly died, but not before mosquitoes bit them and spread the virus to others. Soon, rabbits hundreds of miles away were dying as well.

    Shortly after myxoma’s introduction, Australian virus expert Frank Fenner started a careful, long-term study of its carnage. In the first six months alone, he estimated, the virus killed 100 million rabbits. Fenner determined in laboratory experiments that the myxoma virus killed 99.8 per cent of the rabbits it infected, typically in less than two weeks.

    Yet the myxoma virus did not eradicate the Australian rabbits. Through the 1950s, Fenner discovered why: The myxoma virus grew less deadly. In his experiments, the most common strains of the virus killed as few as 60 per cent of the rabbits. And the rabbits the strains did kill took longer to succumb.

    This evolution fit with popular ideas at the time. Many biologists believed that viruses and other parasites inevitably evolved to become milder — what came to be known as the law of declining virulence.

    “Long-standing parasites, by the process of evolution, have much less of a harmful effect on the host than have recently acquired ones,” zoologist Gordon Ball wrote in 1943.

    According to the theory, newly acquired parasites were deadly because they had not yet adapted to their hosts. Keeping a host alive longer, the thinking went, gave parasites more time to multiply and spread to new hosts.

    The law of declining virulence seemed to explain why myxoma viruses became less lethal in Australia — and why they were harmless back in Brazil. The viruses had been evolving in South American cottontail rabbits much longer.

    But evolutionary biologists have come to question the logic of the law in recent decades. Growing milder may be the best strategy for some pathogens, but it is not the only one.

    “There are forces that can push virulence in the other direction,” Katzourakis said.
    While the virus was not serious in South American rabbits, it was fatal in Australia. Photo / National Archives of Australia via The
    While the virus was not serious in South American rabbits, it was fatal in Australia. P

    Read decided to revisit the myxoma virus story when he started his laboratory at Penn State in 2008.

    “I knew it as a textbook case,” he said. “I started thinking, ‘Well, what’s happening next?'”

    No one had systematically studied the myxoma virus after Fenner stopped in the 1960s. (He had good reason to abandon it, as he had moved on to help eradicate smallpox.)

    Read arranged for Fenner’s samples to be shipped to Pennsylvania, and he and his colleagues also tracked down more recent myxoma samples. The researchers sequenced the DNA of the viruses — something Fenner could not do — and carried out infection studies on lab rabbits.

    When they tested the viral lineages that had been dominant in the 1950s, they found that they were less lethal than the initial virus, confirming Fenner’s findings. The fatality rate stayed relatively low through the 1990s.

    Then things changed.

    Newer viral lineages killed more of the lab rabbits. And they often did so in a new way: by shutting down the animals’ immune systems. The rabbits’ gut bacteria, normally harmless, multiplied and caused lethal infections.

    “It was truly scary when we first saw that,” Read said.

    Strangely, wild rabbits in Australia have not suffered the grisly fate of Read’s laboratory animals. He and his colleagues suspect that the new adaptation in the viruses was a response to stronger defences in the rabbits. Studies have revealed that Australian rabbits have gained new mutations in genes involved in the first line of disease defence, known as innate immunity.

    As the rabbits developed stronger innate immunity, Read and his colleagues suspect, natural selection, in turn, favoured viruses that could overcome this defence. This evolutionary arms race erased the advantage the wild rabbits had briefly enjoyed. But these viruses proved even worse against rabbits that had not evolved this resistance, such as those in Read’s laboratory.

    Roughly a decade ago, a new lineage of myxoma viruses emerged in southeastern Australia. This branch, called Lineage C, is evolving much faster than the other lineages.

    Infection experiments suggest that new mutations are allowing Lineage C to do a better job of getting from host to host, according to the latest study by Read and his colleagues, which has not yet been published in a scientific journal. Many infected rabbits display a strange form of myxomatosis, developing large swellings on their eyes and ears. It is precisely these places where mosquitoes like to drink blood — and where the viruses may have a better chance of reaching a new host.

    Virus experts see some important lessons that the myxoma virus can offer as the world grapples with the Covid-19 pandemic. Both diseases are influenced not only by the genetic makeup of the virus, but also by the defences of its host.

    As the pandemic continues its third year, people are more protected than ever thanks to the immunity that has developed from vaccinations and infections.

    But the coronavirus, like myxoma, has not been on an inevitable path to mildness.

    The delta variant, which surged in the United States last fall, was more deadly than the original version of the virus. Delta was replaced by omicron, which caused less severe disease for the average person. But virus experts at the University of Tokyo have carried out experiments suggesting that the omicron variant is evolving into more dangerous forms.

    “We don’t know what the next step in evolution will be,” Katzourakis said. “That chapter in the trajectory of virulence evolution has yet to be written.”

    I posted the full article for the benefit of those who won’t pay for their news.

    Its a foretell of what could happen with Civid and what might be happening to our rabbits. someone from rabbit country might like to update us on that.



    • And yet they released myxomavirus here and it done piss all, started with a hiss n a roar but fizzled out soon after.

      Mxyoma would come through are farm certain times each year when i lived in aussie, it only ever affected areas with high popupations of rabbits and you never found it on rabbits in lower density areas. Also areas smashed with it didnt seem to get it again for a couple of years, natural immunity?
      I trapped and shot many thousands of bunnies over there, they myxomatosis ones werent fun theyd just shit there blind af could usually walk right up and just donk em on the head if dogs didnt get to them first.

      I think it failed in nz because of our terrain and the huge variance in population density.



        • I always thought the vector was Fleas.
          Myxomatosis was around for a long time and later rabbit calicivirus. was introduced in themiddle of the night.

          Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease (RHD)
          Information for rabbit owners

          New Zealand has three strains of Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV), which is also known as rabbit calicivirus.

          RHDV1v 351 was illegally released in 1997
          RHDV1 K5 (Korean variant) was released in March/April 2018
          RHDV2 was detected in a wild rabbits in 2018.

          These viruses are now present in wild rabbits throughout the country and present a risk to unvaccinated pet rabbits.

          There is no specific treatment for RHDV and mortality rates can be very high. Prevention through vaccination and biosecurity measures is recommended.
          How it spreads

          The RHD virus is spread through:
          direct contact with other rabbits – through secretions from their eyes, nose, and mouth or through faeces or urine. Sick rabbits are highly infectious to other rabbits.
          insects such as flies, fleas, and possibly some mosquitos, which can carry the virus.
          contact with contaminated objects such as bedding, cage accessories, food, water, soil and grass or contact with contaminated people and clothing.




          • In aussie the main transmition for mixy was fleas, youd see them all around infected and sick rabbits eyes.

            We exp RHD here at stupid boy ranch…we had quite a few meat rabbits 🙁 it ripped through and killed a few each day for a couple if weeks.
            Oddly enough one survived and it was an unvaccinated buck, all the vaxed breeding does got taken out along with all the young bunnies that were 8-10wks old… young rabbits under 8wks are naturally immune to RHD.



  8. Whats the point, these cnuts have already said orange will remain through winter, theyre tone deaf and cant read a room so doubt that will change and if it does it will be due to polling.
    Will we get more orange? Or will we get green but with masks and other orange restrictions?



  9. We went hard and early//
    Once again cindy went hard but far too late… https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/health/coronavirus/129063829/the-warehouses-across-new-zealand-full-of-millions-of-rats

    Idiots, same with the vax theres now millions in storage they cant even give away because countries are waking up and realising it for the poison that it is.

    Why the hell did they buy so many rats? And why the hell are they still bringing them in?



  10. Does snorting cocaine mixed with anti anxiety medications damage the unborn childs eyesight?? ,asking for a newly dyed ginger friend,.LOL.
    Fuck the bastard, I could write here for 30 minutes about what her virtue signaling Covid response cost my family personally ,I despise her and her cabal of queer minions, the fucking communist bitch.



  11. SB, “Why the hell did they buy so many rats? And why the hell are they still bringing them in?”

    Because they are commercially illiterate fuckwits.
    Because they can.
    Because it is your money they are spending.
    Because they are not accountable to anyone.

      • Because they had visions that 1984 would become real and that people would be forced to test, self isolate, wear face masks and be ready for lockdown again. But once it became common knowledge to both the more astute members of the medical profession, and more astute members of the public at large, getting a RAT was reduced to a novelty. Probably on par with a Lotto scratchy.

        Bill: “I’ve taken 6 tests and now I finally have one that tests positive so I can ring the boss and get a week off. And I don’t have symptoms.”

        Bob: “I’ve taken 5 tests, and they are all negative. I feel like crap, nose running, headaches, shortness of breath, low SPo2 levels, body aches. But because I work by remote, my boss won’t give me time off without a positive test.”

        Bill: “Keep testing Bob, the results are pretty random. It’s like Lotto scratchies. Scratch enough and you’ll win a bonus prize.”

        RM, they took them off the private sector because they didn’t want geniuses testing the RAT tests themselves, and finding out they were highly inaccurate. Tests that Medsafe should have done but didn’t.

        There are a range of things that can make a RAT test unreliable outside of a lab, including the fact that no-one has ever isolated a Covid-19 sample, and collected those million dollar prizes.

        I’ve been in the position where I have tested products “approved” by testing labs only to find out that the “approval” consisted of rubber stamping the suppliers marketing blurb. Which is exactly what Medsafe did with the RAT tests.

        Medical devices (including COVID-19 test kits) in New Zealand are not assessed and approved by Medsafe before they can be supplied and used. That is, Medsafe does not conduct a pre-market assessment or issue an approval. There is a requirement for most medical devices to be notified to the Web-Assisted Notification of Devices (WAND) database, operated by Medsafe. This is not compulsory for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices, including POC test kits, although is strongly encouraged by Medsafe.

        WAND is not an approval database. It holds information about medical devices supplied in New Zealand that have been self-notified by the New Zealand manufacturer/importer of the device. The information on WAND is not publicly visible.

        As the pre-market legislative/regulatory requirements are minimal, this places even more responsibility on the manufacturer/importer to ensure the medical devices supplied are safe and effective.




    • Went to my Doctor last week on Annual visit, have to go because of on going prescriptions. She asked me if I would like a Rat test box, saying how if I caught Covid could be treated with something? within the first 5 days. I said no then she simply gave me one anyway.



  12. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) database of adverse drug reactions is now reporting 45,752 deaths and 4,522,307 injuries following COVID-19 vaccines, while the United States’ vaccine adverse events recording system (VAERS) is now reporting 29,031 deaths and 1,307,928 injuries following COVID-19 vaccines. We know that as huge as these numbers are which are official government statistics, that they only represent a very small fraction of the total number of deaths and injuries suffered by those who chose to receive COVID-19 vaccines during the past 18 months. Last year, Dr. Jessica Rose did a comprehensive analysis to determine the “under-reported factor” in VAERS, and came up with 41X, meaning that the recorded data for adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines in VAERS had to be multiplied by 41 to get more accurate numbers. However, now that more time has elapsed since this study was performed, many feel that 41X is significantly too low, and should be closer to 100X,

    She was no less than the world communists youth leader, not many years ago!
    She was parading in her underwear across the stage, no less!
    Is she a secert spy for Vladimir Putin?
    She has said she hasn’t time to visit the Ukraine! (She doesn’t have time in her busy schedule)
    I think she’s got the flying horsebox so it’s not out of the way. All she has to do is say go that way!
    I’m sure Vlad will give her permission. Been secert spy and all!

  16. I have had “the flu” for the past 2 days. No headache, just tired and a bit of a dry cough. Seeing I had the RAT test from my Doctor as stated earlier though I would do a test. First thing is that the writing is so small can hardly follow it, second thing is that I tested positive. Seems strange to me, if this is covid not sure what all the fuss is about.



    • Strikes me that those tests are about as reliable as a Nigerian widow offering you money. Took Mrs C back to the quack today as she is still having stomach cramps. Nurse insisted that upset stomach can be the only symptom for covid, which seems pretty odd to me considering that it is supposed to be a respiratory virus. Any how Mrs C consented to a RAT test which as I suspected was negative.
      At least the staff were a lot more helpful and supportive than North Shore hospital the other night.



    • Covid is a joke but the wog thats going around down here now is fair slamming everyone, lots of muppets panicking its 2nd dose of the super deadly covid and shoving rat tests up their noses multiple times per day ffs. Its hilarious as theyre absolutely devestated its just a normal flu so no social media sob storys with photos of positive rat tests.



  17. How can they review the orange light if cindy is not back yet?

  18. With the Godaddled no doubt still half fried after two days on the sweet sherry & communion wine celebrating the US Roe vs Wade repeal it is fortunate that saner minds can see implications. Implications beyond the Godless trollops being punished for their sins with motherhood.

    From ACT’s latest “Free Press” email:

    ……”Women who last month could have relied on a medical procedure will now not have that right. It will effect education, careers and financial situations of many women, taking a right they thought was settled.

    The Court found that the country’s constitution does not give any right to abortion. In the words of the three dissenting judges “Today, the Court… says that from the very moment of fertilization, a woman has no rights to speak of. A State can force her to bring a pregnancy to term, even at the steepest personal and familial costs.”

    The only way they can get their rights back is to turn over red state legislatures, which they will now commit enormous resources to doing. We predict those who’ve worked decades for this Ruling don’t quite understand what they’ve unleashed.”…….

    The release goes into the issue quite deeply but the takeaway is that right at the time when NZ needs the USA the latter is likely to be split. The split could go as far as a separation of the Red & Blue states which currently don’t seem to have a great deal in common. Worse for the conservatives amongst us the decision is going to cost the Republican Party dearly in the upcoming elections.

    Now is the time for each of the Moral Majority here & in the States to reload, aim & shoot themselves in the other foot!



    • I think ACT has got this all wrong as they have with US politics in the past. The Supreme Court has just said that this issue should up to the individual States not the Federal Government. In practical terms women will still be able get an abortion even if they have go to another state. Not all Red states will have a blacket ban, some will have, for example, an allownce for if the woman has been raped.
      Of course the dessenting judges will say what they said —they are Democrats after all.
      It has come out recently that Roe (from original Court case ) admitted before she died that she was paid to say what she said in Court and that it was all BS.
      Before anyone cuts me down, I am not against abortion but I am against what NZ has now. The previous law was fine.



    • Nasska, please tell me how this will change anything in the big scheme if things?

      Any woman in usa will still be able to get an abortion just perhaps not in their home state so an $100 plane ticket or a road trip.
      Scotus didnt ban abortions they just ruled its not a right under the constitution so states can decide for themselves.

      And tbh after the way leftards have acted over the last couple of covid years i really dont give a fuck, the more pain and tears the better 🙂
      i find it hilarious theyre now all about freedom of choice/my body my choice. Well guess what they have alot choice, have safe sex, have a baby, travel and get an abortion or take a risk and use a rusty coathanger.
      They have far more options then what the pro mandate crowd gave us and they had the gall to still call it a “choice” to get jabbed or lose your job.

      Personally i believe the best way for these screaming lefties to abort their babies is to dose themselves with cyanide 🙂



        • What about the body growing inside the womans body?
          Wheres their freedom?

          Its a sticky subject with pros and cons on both sides but really life is life and abortion involves taking a life.

          I used to be pro abortion but its been abused and pushing the boundaries of whats morally acceptable.
          Id support abortion if the eligibility was narrowed so its not just used as contraception by sluts that cant be responsible and use contraception and consent from the father wouldnt go amiss either.

          Ffs i couldnt even get a vasectomy without my wife signing consent forms yet when she was pregnant she couldve gone and killed my baby without my consent.

          I heard a Comment of the day today… “youve spent 2 years of wearing a mask to protect yourself, surely then you could wear a condom for 3minutes”

          Btw nasska theres no such thing as freedom mate, all we have is an illusion of it.



          • I agree Iaasb, but I don’t really think of the growth as a baby. It’s just a slightly developed come stain.

            But let’s remind women of their choice when they shriek for special privileges on the basis – it’s for their baby – which the treacherous slags do constantly.



      • Garner was on about this this morning.
        I was getting more and more angry because to me he hadn’t read the decision of the SCOTUS and appeared to be quite confused .
        I text him and asked ‘have you read the decision? ‘
        No reply of course.



    • Today, the Court… says that from the very moment of fertilization, a woman has no rights to speak of.

      No it doesn’t at all.
      What it does say is that developing feotus has a right to life.
      What the old order described is that that feotus life was at the whim of its carrier.
      Who has the greater or lesser rights?

      I am ambivalent about abortion and but some of the tripe I have heard today on radio is just awful.
      Stopping it completely as some states propose will drive it back underground but should it just be a convenient way of managing your reproductive capacity?
      There are lots of options out there (well until the Catholics manage to ban contraception as well, which is the next post for them).

      Yes there are accidents and yes there are the nasty happenings and the deformed where there is a case to be made.

      Basically, you fucked up take responsibility for your actions. Surely that is the YSB thing to say.

      Ask any lady who had her baby taken away at birth and adopted out just how they feel.
      Ask some who have gone down the abortion route. They are never the same again, which is probably why we have all the mad deranged abortion activists.
      They have screwed their own heads.

      The hypocracy of DL enforcing the jab and then telling everyone that when it comes to babies Its my body I want to decide is just typical is it not. I can make a decision on a baby ensuite but not on a failed treatment for an unknown virus.

      Anyway, it might be an irrelevant argument looking at this tonight.

      Pfizer Vaccine Impairs Sperm Count—Conspiracy Theorists Were Right
      Rav Arora
      June 22, 2022 Updated: June 26, 2022

      A new peer-reviewed study published in the journal Andrology on June 17 vindicates another dark suspicion about COVID-19 vaccines: they harm male fertility. Specifically, researchers find declining sperm counts for up to five months after the second dose of Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 jab.

      The biggest unanswered question from this study is the reproductive side effects associated with a booster shot. Study participants were given a third dose, but data collection ended after the second shot. Moreover, this data is only for the Pfizer vaccine. As we’ve seen with myocarditis, the Moderna vaccine has severalfold (approximately three to five times) higher rates of myocarditis compared to Pfizer. If the differential vaccine damage for myocarditis in any way aligns with sperm count impairment, this would be a medical disaster.




  19. OOOOhhhh Look, look a Squirrel!

    So says the scummy rag the Herald.

    Luxon, an evangelical Christian, has effectively gagged his MPs from discussing the ruling publicly, having already forced MP Simon O’Connor to remove social media posts he called “triumphalist”.

    In the meantime, a Robbing Bum Scuttling Arsehole of a Minister of Finance gives more of your money to the Ukraine hoping you, the Taxpayer would not notice.




        • Haha i used to do the same, think i got a tinny once as id ran out a day or 2 before payday but apart from that it was ounces or pounds and save big bux, only a clown pays 800-1000bux for an ounce wrapped in tinfoil.

          I wish i had your restraint, first lockdown cost me an ounce every 2-3days 🙁 was a hard transition to detox and go find a job afterwards!



            • They corruopted me kea, before i moved there i never drank, smoked or even seen any sort of drugs in my life let alone consumed them. A very naive stupid boy i was, i escaped the place after 4 years and left the worst of my bad habbits behind (cigis and lsd) , i was fortunate to leave when i did as meth was just starting to make its way into the area and literally everyone except 1 that i used to kick around with are lost cause meth heads.



      • That reminds me of when meth was starting to become more widespread and popular some years ago – the cops were busy scaremongering about weed laced with meth. I was not convinced – why would anyone lace a relatively cheap drug with a more expensive drug? It’s not good business.

        Now, thanks to the sterling efforts of police and moral panic from politicians, meth is cheaper and easier to get than ever.

        In case anyone needs reminding, fentanyl is a product of the pharmaceutical industry.



        • SA, some did to get users hooked esp the younger users.
          That scummy tactic was rife around the nelson area 2007ish, i had several mates buy tinnies and 50bags and get the biggest buzz of their life. Upon closer inspection there was another substance on the buds as it definately was trichomes, we only assumed it was meth but couldnt be 100% sure but was definatly an amphetamine of some sort. My neighbour smoked it and didnt sleep for 3 days, the cambodians in nelson were notorious for selling laced weed, some avoided them but many went there purely because they knew more bang for their bux.

          Oxytocin soaked n dried laced buds were also a thing up that ways too but were marketed as such, that trend didnt seem to last long tho and pretty much disappeared after a few months.



    Russia has defaulted on its foreign debt. It can’t pay largely as a result of sanctions inhibiting its ability to shift funds. It’s their first default of foreign debt in 100 years. But during Russia’s financial crisis and ruble collapse of 1998, then president Boris Yeltsin’s government defaulted on $US40 billion of its local debt.

    Guess someone is sweating it out somewhere meanwhile Vlad has the gold and probably doesn’t care.]Possibly has targeted those l;oans to hurt the EU,



  21. A man was working in the garden and his wife was about to take a shower.
    He realized that he couldn’t find the rake.. and yelled up to his wife,
    “Where is the rake?”
    She couldn’t hear and she shouted back, “What?”
    He pointed to his eye, and then pointed to his knee and made a raking motion.
    his wife wasn’t sure and said “What?”
    He repeated the gestures. “Eye – Kneed – The Rake”
    His wife replied that she understands and signals back.
    She first points to her eye, next she points to her left breast, then she points to her backside, and finally to her crotch.
    Well, there is no way in hell he could even come close to that one.
    Exasperated, He went upstairs and asked her, “What the hell was that?”
    She replies:
    “Eye – Left Tit – Behind – The Bush”



  22. We were told yesterday the AA+ was they way to go.

    BUT they are just as bad as they always were. woke and broke

    A family say the Automobile Associate refused them roadside assistance when their car was on the verge of breaking down because one of their daughters had Covid.

    Mum Sari Clausen is speaking out to warn other AA members that they may not get the roadside help they’re expecting if someone in the car is infectious.

    But AA says it did everything possible to help the family, and despite appearances their BMW was safe to drive the 300km home.




    • Anyone who wastes money on an AA membership is fucked in the head. But this tells the real story:

      ……””The computer said you can continue driving but with reduced power … and get it serviced as soon as possible by a BMW expert.” The car wouldn’t go faster than 80km/h and at that speed the shuddering became severe.”…..

      You buy a piece of overpriced, unreliable German shit & expect to go somewhere without a tow truck on fast dial?

      Oh the humanity, the childish faith, the naivety! 🙂



  23. Looks like Len Brown had an apprentice.

    Council admits ‘inappropriate’ video appears to have been shot in offices
    Geraden Cann15:55, Jun 27 2022

    Auckland Council has acknowledged the existence of an “inappropriate” video that appears to have been shot in the council’s offices.

    While a tip-off about the video claimed it was pornographic in nature, the council has refused to confirm that, describing it only as “inappropriate”.

    Privacy and information manager Fiona Morris said: “In 2021, Auckland Council was notified of the existence of a video, which contained inappropriate content and appeared to have been filmed in Auckland Council’s offices.”




  24. That’s just Newshub so all the other govt propagandist outlets will have been paid similar amounts.

    The Opposition is hitting out at the Government for how much it’s spent on advertising the COVID-19 vaccine.

    Since the rollout began last year, Newshub can reveal $43 million has been spent promoting it, which works out to around $4 per dose delivered to date.

    But as the number of people getting vaccinated wanes, the Government’s spending isn’t. Last month alone, $2.7 million was spent advertising the vaccine, with just over 41,000 jabs administered.

    So for every dose delivered in May, $67 was spent advertising it.



  25. Tomorrow is day one of the long awaited substantive “Kids Case” application in the Wellington High Court.

    Judge Gendall will oversee the judicial review challenging the decision by Medsafe to approve the Pfizer vaccine for 5-11 year old children and the government’s decision to roll it out.

    To get this far has been a massive team effort of legal, scientific and medical experts, concerned parents and of course supporters from throughout New Zealand and around the world.

    Voices For Freedom is proud to have played an important part in helping the ‘Hood bring this case to court thanks to the generous support of VFF donors.
