  4. The dumbing down of education continues. Our local boys school of about 450 is putting in a time table where they will start at 9am (because 8:40 am is too early for some of the little petals) do 4 x 1hr classes with a 20minute break at 11am . Then they will have lunch after that they will fuck around doing kapa haka and other silly shit from 2 till 3 each day .

  7. Re-education of you fullas on what we think of gang members. 😮

    ‘There’s nothing we can’t achieve’ – Former gang rivals become brothers

    Notorious imagery associated with the Mongrel Mob, and Black Power gangs.

    He says that identity became so engrained, that he “didn’t really want to get out of prison” when approaching the end of his sentence, but is so glad that he did.

    Both of them have left their gang affiliations behind.

    “The first time I met Hemi, I was going on a van ride to come to the church, and we pulled up to his address and I was like ‘ooph’, just a bit offish. But when I jumped out of the van, I got embraced with the most biggest hug, just the most loveliest hug I’ve ever felt.”

    Hemi and Matthew are in the middle of laser surgery to have their tattoos removed.

    He laughs when he remembers it was an “aunty” from church who explained to the staff that the men were like brothers.

    • But Big Pharma & those aligned with “follow the science” politicians, know it is a sure thing. ! !
      The politicians of enough countries will support the UN WHO Pandemic Treaty, & will stamp the good citizens in it.

      We hear this in our own politicians in New Zealand ! & from many of their supporters in swallowing dead rats.!
      Later they will acclaim that they declared this & you voted to support this.

      Argument based on that majority as you have voted & shot your bolt, so will brook no argument, debate, discussion, on that issue.
      As they say, you have made your “Choice” so wear the Consequences in other parts of your life.
      NZ Parliamentarians seem to like the “Mission Creep” of their Powers to develop further Controls, in your “Choices”.

  9. Jim had an awful day fishing , sitting in the blazing sun all day without catching a single one

    On his way home, he stopped at the fish shop and ordered two snapper.

    He told the fish salesman, “Pick two large ones out and throw them at me, will you?”

    “Why do you want me to throw them at you?”

    “Because I want to tell my wife that I caught them.”

    “Okay, but I suggest that you take the Blue Cod”

    “Why’s that?”

    “Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take the Blue Cod. That’s what she’d like for dinnner tonight.”

  10. ACT firearms policy. From Nicole Mckee:

    “Dear Saggy (you handsome beast),

    I’m emailing you because you’ve previously supported ACT’s work defending the rights of licensed firearms owners. Like me, you’re probably sick and tired of what you’ve been hearing from Labour for the past few years.

    Well, I’ve got some news I’m excited to share with you. Today, ACT is releasing its proposed firearms policy for consultation – I’d love to hear your feedback.

    I’ve heard from Deerstalkers Associations and firearms clubs up and down New Zealand who feel like they’ve been scapegoated and had a whole load of regulations forced on them without ever being asked for input.

    That’s why ACT has always stood up for LFOs and always promised that any policy would include thorough consultation with the LFO community. You can make your voice heard and provide feedback by emailing firearmspolicy@act.org.nz.
    Some highlights of ACT’s policy include:
    • Creating a separate, truly independent Firearms Safety Authority for licensing administration
    Scrapping the firearms registry
    • Introducing a three-tier licensing system which recognises that all firearms pose a threat in the wrong hands, and that licencing the individual is the key to preventing misuse. This system will adopt a risk mitigation approach without outright banning possession of semi-automatics.
    • Instant licence disqualification for gang membership
    • Recognising overseas offences in the vetting process.

    The full policy can be viewed here.
    Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to hearing your feedback.
    Yours sincerely,
    Nicole McKee”

  11. Subway has been sold for billions in one of the biggest fast food acquisitions ever
    Subway listed themselves for $10 billion. Roark Capital offered $9.6 according to The Wall Street Journal.
    Doc Louallen

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/food/2023/08/25/subway-company-sold-roark-capital-billions/70675156007/

    The sandwich company announced in a press release Thursday that it had received an offer from Roark. The Wall Street Journal reported that Roark offered $9.6 billion for the sale, which originally was listed for $10 billion back in February.

  12. Two guys are sitting in a bar on top of a cliff on the Pacific Ocean.
    They are watching the birds fly down close to the water, catch the draft and fly all the way back up.

    One of the guys then exclaims, “I bet you I can do the same thing as the birds; drop down, catch the draft and have it carry me back up.”

    “No you can’t” the second guy explains, “that’s impossible”

    So the first guy, taking it as a challenge, runs up to the edge, jumps off, falls almost all the way and then the draft picks him up and floats him right back to his seat.

    The second guy can’t believe his eyes. He immediately want to try himself. So he runs up to the edge, jumps and falls to his death in the Pacific Ocean.

    The waiter who saw the whole scenario comes by and says,

    “Superman, you’re a jerk when you’re drunk”

  13. The inevitable consequences of fools in power and their stupid decisions.

    Rotorua rentals: Trade Me listings down 49 per cent on last year, claims landlords are selling up

    The number of available rentals in Rotorua listed on Trade Me plummeted by nearly 50 per cent in a year, with property industry figures saying landlords are selling up to reinvest elsewhere.

    “Absolutely astonishing and horrifying,” is how one investor describes the scenario, while another says more properties are being handed over to community housing providers.

    Trade Me Property sales director Gavin Lloyd told the Rotorua Daily Post Weekend the number of available rental properties in Rotorua fell 49 per cent in July, compared with July last year. This compared to a nationwide drop of 21 per cent.

    “Demand in the Bay of Plenty rental market is outstripping supply which is a similar trend we are seeing nationally.”

    Incvestors are rational whereas the naaska and the socialists of this world are not.

    But I’m sure he will tell me he is rational but broke.

    • Hunty may have it right, if he knows that terminals are definitely shutting up shop.

      As eventually with the hassle of traffic, rail, trains tooting, blasting of ship-horns, lights, the wake of the ferries, so that the terminals have to be closed down & moved to elsewhere, as it gentrifies.

      It has been mooted about in the past.
      Or back to Lyttleton Christchurch as ferry traffic & numbers using them as been building over the years, making larger ferries possible, if economic?

  14. The “rent a thug” mob have disrupted Avi Yemini’s book launch tour meeting in Wellington. He has been planning it for sometime and had rented the Wellington Cathedral for his meeting ( not sure if was the cathedral itself or a hall next to it). He got an email very late in piece from the Cathedral people to say they were being threatened with violence, so they had to cancel renting the venue.

    So Avi rings up Brian Tamaki for some help, given the very short notice, and Brian says no problem you can have our building out in Petone and there will be security guards on hand. Well done Brian !!

    I wonder who is paying the rent a thug mob ?

  15. Now they’re really taking the piss.

    “A 17-letter name, the traditional Māori name for the location, has been rejected by Bay of Plenty residents for being too long, leaving it a street with no name.

    Papakangahorohoro Road was proposed as the name of a development of new houses at Bunyan Rd, Whakatāne, after the Whakatāne District Council consulted with local iwi.

    The name – meaning “to move swiftly in battle formation like the crab” – was chosen by Ngāti Awa cultural adviser Pouroto Ngaropō, because the houses were on land where chief Taiwhakaea trained his warriors in defence tactics and battle formations.”

            And no dont waste your time posting dnz stuff, we both know theyre not going to make it.
            No party is perfect, never will be. Act has more policies/ideas that align with me then the dicky nats.
            Seymour is a fucking douche but we cant change that, i can live with voting for him far more then i could live with voting for a sub 2% party and labour get back in.

    Deputy Prime Minister Carmel Sepuloni is avoiding accountability over the cost of living crisis, saying it’s “not necessarily the Government’s fault”.

    The election is right around the corner and the cost of living is on everyone’s minds.

    • Not I as it has been pbvious for a long time.
      Was going on way back when broadcasting was first established.
      It was always controlled by the Govt. and the Nats started that.
      Didn’t like it when Hauraki came along and disputed their right to control the airwaves.

      • In this V2 is correct. Radio transmissions started in 1921 & by 2023 the dead hands of church & state had the medium under iron fisted control. Worth noting that the 2021 government was led by the Reform Party & a few Liberal renegades which eventually merged in 1936 to become the Nats:

        ……”In 1923 the state established an annual fee: five shillings for radio receivers (increased to £1 10s in 1925) and £2 for transmitters. Controls on broadcast content were also introduced. All content had to follow a strict moral code, advertising was banned, and Sundays had to have substantial religious programming. These rules were closely monitored by the Post and Telegraph Department..”…….

        Then Labour after winning the 1935 election decided in the manner of all socialist totalitarians that state ownership would stop anything nasty or unkind being broadcast about the government.

        …….”In 1935 the newly elected Labour government made broadcasting a state department. The New Zealand Broadcasting Service (NZBS) took over all of the NZBB’s functions. In opposition Labour had championed the B stations; once in power they changed their policy to one of state purchase. The NZBS absorbed all of the B stations, other than Gisborne’s 2ZM (renamed 2XM) and Dunedin’s 4ZD (renamed 4XD). With these two exceptions broadcasting became a state monopoly, remaining so for the next 25 years.”……..

    • A friend of a friend has a late model swellpro, they can pretty much tow out a longline. He drags out 15 baits sometimes over 1km, hes got one if those new fangdangled electric reels loaded with 1.5km of braid, the whole setup owes him almost 10k, cheaper then a boat he rekons but a boat can go fish more places then a drone.

      The alibaba one is alot cheaper then the ones sold here in nz, wonder if theyre knock offs or if the kiwi outfits buying alibaba and got a sweet markup…
      https://dronefishing.co.nz/brand/swellpro/ note alot of them are refurbs and not brand spanker… $$$$$$

      Ive got one of these zippy lil beasts… https://www.trademe.co.nz/4285239902
      Hard to know how much stuff on tardme will go for tho, could be an $700 bargain or go well over a grand.

      • Thanks SB. My guess the NZ outfit is importing from China.
        What is the advantage, if any, of a drone setup compared to those small model boat set ups that have around for 5-10years and advertised on TV a lot? Is it the speed of setting up the line?

        PS Also don’t forget the Alibaba prices are in US$.

        • Pros and cons for both setups, my mate on the coast has a kontiki and 3 times now the mainline has caught a submerged log and snapped, if you get snagged on a gnarly reef its goodbye aswell vs losing a sinker and hook drone/surfcasting. Hes just been lucky a kayak or jetski has been handy to go retrieve it otherwise it would sail into the sunset, drone can fall out the sky too.
          Kontikis are much more bulky and heavy, you also probably want a winch to wind in the mainline but you can bait with 25 hooks, sometimes the surf mucks them up and theyll go paralell to the beach instead of straight outwhich means wasted run fishing and a tangled line in the surf.

          Kite fishing is an in between option too, can fly in far stronger winds then a drone ever could and get a line out through surf a contiki couldnt, much cheaper too but lil bit more hassle then drone or kontiki.

They all deserve justice. The criminals involved deserve punishment. Giving up and forgetting about the whole thing is not an option.

I am realistic enough to know that as an individual I don’t have much influence but I do what I can. Life for your kids and my grand kids will be unbearable if the bastards are allowed to continue in the current direction, though unfortunately most of them (the kids and grandkids) can’t see it coming.

      • In case you are wondering, I have cataracts in both eyes and fingers that sometimes don’t work. Bit of bloody nuisance and if I forgot to check what I write for some reason these get by.
        Cataracts from 7 years of prenisone from the results of flu injections which nearly paralised me. I had two and the second one caused a lot of issues.
        That just might wise you up to why I despise these bastards with their jabs.
        My fingers have done a hell of a lot of hard work in the bush, bakeries and so on. A couple sometimes just don’t go when they should.
        Having my eyes fixed shortly and then hopefully my fingers. No state subsidy for either. Eyes alone probably close to 12 k.
        Thats what it is when ya get beyond 65.
