  1. Finally some decent rain and of course dire warnings from the Metservice NZ which we get every time it rains now days. No doubt all those warnings are recorded and will be later used to prove that white cis males and capitalism are evil.

    • KEA ,You must be getting the “long hot dry summer” that the Metservice spent millions of taxpayers dollars to predict in august ,September,October and November ,it’s funny how the incompetent buffoons have stopped reporting that anymore .
      I guarantee those fcuking idiots couldn’t predict a hurricane was coming if they we’re blowing along 3 meters above the ground in the middle of one, no joke.

    • Komata , Yep ,nothing promotes a fricking stone bruise like a piece of Lego left on the floor and the stupid person receiving the injury failing to simply turn on the light as they made their way to the bathroom, even worse is a small lamb bone strategically left in the garage just below the step out of the house and the same idiot again failing to turn on the lights FFS.
      The most galling thing about the lamb bone scenario is that unlike the grandkids who take some notice of their grandfather telling them what little shits they are the dog doesn’t give 2 fcuks about your moaning and limping for days …🦮🖕🖕🖕

            • Must have hit a sore point then.

              My kids and grandkids were taught to tidy up behind themselves. Its so much easier and when they grow up they continue and teach their kids the same.
              Makes for better adults.

              • Viking, FFS what sort of world would we have if everyone was like you ,the font of all knowledge (99% plagiarised from Google) and all our children and grandchildren were like your angels ( probably destined to become transvestites faggs and labour voters) loosen up on my grandies and I will leave yours alone Vikey, are you hungover this morning ?LOL..

                • Hardly drink at all and never have much rev.

                  Have a thing about learning.
                  Learn something new everyday no matter how big nor how small.
                  Do lots of things.
                  Encourage people to ask questions and question everything.
                  Listen to people when they speak.
                  Watch peoples eyes for the eyes are the window to the soul.

                  Read a lot.
                  Read history and successful people’s stories.
                  Never accept the left.

                  This has been the saddest year of my life Rev.
                  Blindsided with losing my lady but I decided that even so I would make this year a success in other things and have.
                  Can’t do what I used too, but am training others as fast I can teach them. Still luv working and learning. Luv learning about process and computer program use. Done a lot this year and have already an interesting project to do soon. If it keeps raining then it might be very soon.
                  Have to learn it all as I go. Not being able to see makes it a bit harder. Have to wait until March to have them fixed. Impatient about that. Pisses me off that we have the health system under so much stress when it needn’t have been.

                  And no my grandies and great grandies are all hard working self reliant people as are my kids. Almost exclusively believe in the individual and their own need to be responsible for themselves.
                  some already have their own businesses, several have degrees,
                  one has just been accepted for Medical after all her prelims. Of 2800 that started 280 accepted. One apprentice of the year in the BOP for his trade, another GGC about to be born. So no I don’t think your predictions will ever be true.
                  But I never thought they would all be angels. Kids have to leave home early and learn what its like out there. makes then stronger. None have been in any serious trouble.
                  So there ya go.

                  Be nice to people.

                  • Very nice Vikey , It wasn’t a prediction it was a counter to your comment about your ability to produce better outcomes with your children and grandchildren than any other fricking parents, you can say what you like about me hopefully with a laugh mingled in but bring my kids and especially grandkids into your comments and you can expect some incoming of a far more insulting manner than I suspect (going by your last comment) you would be capable of writing yourself, happy new year Vikey.

        What you describe is the sort of thing that really ‘Makes you wanna ‘owwwl’ ((And that’s BEFORE you land on the floor)!

        You have my sympathy (Shame about the dog – did he ‘survive’ the experience)?

  2. Thank Goodness the drought has broken. I was really worried, since the last two days that we would have a full blown drought, but here the rain is, and I am so so relieved especially for the Wellington city council, as they have been paying for the mayor and her friends to get out and about, and not putting their money into infrastructure. So have they water restrictions. Here in the city of Hamilton, we are expecting a 25% rates increase, I wonder is that for infrastructure? You do have to wonder if it was the Iceland volcano like the Tongan one last year that is giving us so much rain, but ummmmmmmm Is it too far away? The papers have been giving us so much of the other one you know that other one that is drought and no rain, this is for the best part of the year surely the papers ration etc have not made a mistake?????/////////////
    Have a lovely day in the thunderstorms people. Be safe.

  3. After returning from eating and drinking to excess in the country’s outback yesterday, I have been advised that the new COVID Variant JN.1 has reared it’s ugly head and is likely to ravage the Motu (I think that may be an isolated river in the Gisborne Region of the East Coast of the North Island).

    I am also advised that this is of the utmost concern to the perpetually concerned. Therefore I am wondering if I should permanently strap myself to the bunk to avoid this Variant as the former Variants, were also of the utmost concern, highly dangerous and could cause monumental harm to ones personage? Is this JN.1 any different from these Variants that ravaged and laid waste to the land.

    BA BA1.1
    BA1.7

    Can anyone offer any guidance as I am at my wits end?

  4. Stopped in at Rai Valley. The good buggers who own the cafe are selling up. They have a big poster up saying they don’t discriminate based on race, gender, vax ect. Front of house always has pleasant attractive down to earth women. No tats and attitude of the city staff.

    Probably driven out by the letter box crisis.

  5. for those that like culture and looking at georgous ladies here something for you. No fat black slobs dressed (and I say that advisidtly), in black. Colourful and of our culture.
    Beat that fucking kapa haka everytime. By the way have you noticed how much school funding going into that. Now its all consuming and never mind the maths etc. Must be an education/ taxpayer tap supplying the money so now its like who can spend the most on trainers.

    • Bill Mahar will say anything for the big bucks he thinks he is worth. So will the other two people on that show, anything to keep the funding for Zilenski so he won’t spill the beans on the corrupt Biden family, It is all just the corrupt CIA, FBI etc and keep the money rolling in for the War industrial complex bastards.

    • Sorry WG, I watched 7mins of that and almost lost the will to live. I’ll never die in a ditch defending Bill Maher but DOR and the other hyena haven’t said a single intelligent thing in rebuttal.
      Don’t agree with Maher’s stats? Produce some others, name your source and let people decide.
      Cackling derision is the hallmark of those other self-appointed high priests of les issues du jour who won’t enter debate but demand everyone else concur.

  8. We live in the Waitakere Ranges and the other day as we were enjoying a restful afternoon wine on the deck we were amazed when a group of Maoris arrived next door, stomped around their garden and then started doing a haka!

    I phoned the neighbours to enquire what was going on. The lady is heavily pregnant and it crossed my mind that even though they aren’t Maoris, it might be some kind of DEI ‘welcome’ for their coming sprog (they’re pretty woke).

    But no answer. So we went up to the road. The Maoris had gone and a couple of other neighbours had arrived. Apparently many years ago the property in question was in a Maori trust and it appears that some of the tribalists who had been doing their war dance used to live there.

    Imagine if the tenants had been home. Imagine being within days of giving birth and a bunch of natives invade the property and start shouting, waving their arms about and sticking their tongues out!

    This is New Zealand in 2023.

    • Colorado has been ruined by coastal demonrats moving inland.
      Creating woke-wanker pockets of (actual) deplorables.
      Does Fruity Farrar have a ski chalet there?

      Risk to Montana and Wyoming as these small population states could be easily ruined by a few coastal fuckwits moving in.

  9. Interesting point of view on World Politics

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pczmpuMljY&ab_channel=JudgeNapolitano-JudgingFreedom

    I read the transcript that was emailed to me.

    Matthew Hoh: Who Really Controls US Foreign Policy?

    The Ukrainians are going to be the next Afghans. They are going to be forgotten and left behind as soon as that’s politically convenient for the US, as soon as the US can see another path in Eastern Europe. For the US one of the reasons why I think we may have an interest in a negotiated settlement in Ukraine is because the major aspect, maybe the most important aspect for the Americans is the domination of the energy market in Europe. For me this is where it all begins. How did this go from, in 2012, Barack Obama in debates making fun of Mitt Romney for suggesting that Russia is an adversary, to within a year the Russia phobia that we have seen? For me a lot of that comes from fracking and, then at the same time, the construction or the expansion of a dozen or so liquid natural gas terminals on the East Coast, in the Gulf of Mexico. They had to send all this fracked gas someplace and where’s the best market? It was Europe. For me that’s the genesis of the last decade’s worth of tensions with Russia, as well as you know the genesis of the coup in Ukraine in 2014. So in that sense the Americans have won, at least at this point, because we are dominating that energy market. We are now the largest liquid natural gas supplier to the world with much of that going to Europe, taking over from what the Russians used to provide.

    So, if the Americans can say, ‘Look, we got this and this is what we really wanted,’ we can always just spin what we did in Ukraine as, ‘We stopped Vladimir Putin, he was only ever to able to advance 60 or 70 kilometers west, he only actually really took 10% of the territory because he had taken Crimea before, this is a victory. We stopped the tyrant in his tracks, he wasn’t able to march on Berlin or Paris.’ You can see how Biden could spin this when he’s out campaigning for reelection. These are all the things that should make the people in Kiev realize that they are ripe for betrayal …

    We’re coming out of Christmas and I think it’s appropriate to understand the societal aspects of this–the philosophical, the metaphysical, the religious aspects of all this. What we are seeing is really something that is unholy, and I think you can use that in a religious sense but also in a secular sense: the moral horror of this and what that means for us as a people, who we are and, of course, what it has done to tens and tens of millions of people. But then, too, the nightmare of the Empire, the ever extending nightmare of the empire, in the sense that as things get out of control for our Empire, as it devolves, as it falls apart, as there’s more fractures in it, as we try to maintain more control by putting pressure on things through violence, through military force, whether direct or by proxy, it causes even greater stress which cause even greater fractures.

    So what that plays out to, then, is nations saying, ‘This American hegemony just doesn’t benefit us–it harms us. We have to not just get away from it, we don’t just need to find alternatives like, say, the BRICS, but we need to actively oppose it.’ So what you see is things like what are happening in the Red Sea, with the Houthis or Ansar Allah as they’re called, fighting back, and the harm that has caused because they can fight back asymmetrically against very soft parts of the Empire’s global economy. It’s causing effects that are really outstripping what our actual capabilities are and so, rather than seeing that the way to handle this is to address what they are are fighting about, what they are standing up against–basically stop the genocide in Gaza–the desire is to double down on it and to quash them militarily. So what we’re seeing play out in the Red Sea, that could blow up into other things with consequences that we just can’t foresee but are likely going to be bad, is something that is just lost on the Romneys the Grahams the Blumenthals, because, one, they are so ideologically driven, they are infested with this religious American exceptionalism, they believe it’s good for their careers, but also this is how they’re they’re underwritten by the arms industry.

  10. I wonder if Milei is a WEF turncoat or infiltrator for the good guys. He hasn’t been assassinated, much like Trump, so what gives?

    Explainer: What is in Javier Milei’s sweeping Argentina reform bill?

    https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/what-is-javier-mileis-sweeping-argentina-reform-bill-2023-12-28/

    Argentina’s President Javier Milei has ANOTHER major victory today.

    He has proposed a law that affirms a right to self-defense in Argentina, which they do not currently have.

    This will be applies in cases where someone tries to cause bodily harm to you or where they try to invade your property.

    It also affirms that if the person trying to attack you dies, their relatives cannot sue you after the fact for defending yourself.

    This is another MAJOR Milei victory in the same week where he has banned woke pronoun usage from government text, enacted reforms that will remove welfare benefits from anyone protesting in the streets blocking traffic and ban the usage of the word “free” to promote taxpayer-funded government programs.

  11. Just been to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. Pretty good though entry isn’t cheap at $50

    Amazingly they managed not to lie about history to push an anti German narrative. Something that is vanishingly rare. Just as our contemporaries are told about genocide and destruction of the peaceful Maori people.

  12. FS just got pulled over for speeding on top of Windy Ridge just North of Puhoi. Thought it was 100km/h zone but they’ve reduced it to 80. Spose I should look at the signs. The only reason we weren’t on the new road was because we decided to go for a coffee at the Honey Centre by the satellite station. Except when we got there it was closed. Winner.

  13. “The number of decile 1 students in first-year tertiary study has halved since the controversial fees-free policy started, with students from wealthier backgrounds making up an increasingly greater share.

    The policy, introduced in 2018, was initially brought in to boost student numbers, and to open the door wider for those facing higher economic hurdles. It covers a year of first-time tertiary study, or two years of work-based training, up to $12,000.

    But instead of reducing inequity, the policy appears to have exacerbated it.”

    Labour really couldn’t get anything right, could they. Who else could cock up giving money away? And then again with the cost of living payment going to people living overseas, or dead.

  15. Researchers from Yale University, University of Buffalo and Rutgers recruited 634 couples from 1996 to 1999 while they were applying for a marriage license in New York State. After an initial interview, the researchers followed the couples over the course of nine years using mail-in surveys to measure the effects of marijuana use on intimate partner violence (IPV).

    The study defines IPV as acts of physical aggression, such as slapping, hitting, beating and choking, and it was measured by asking couples to report violence committed by them or toward them in the last year.

    At the end of the first year, 37.1 percent of husbands had committed acts of domestic violence.

    Marijuana use was measured by asking participants how often they used marijuana or hashish (defined as pot, weed, reefer, hash, hash oil or grass) in the last year. Participants were also asked about other drug use including alcohol, because, as the researchers explain the study, marijuana and alcohol are often used in conjunction.

    What the researchers found surprised them: due to the fact that alcohol and other substances are known to increase domestic violence, they hypothesised that marijuana use would have the same effect. But that was not the case.

    “More frequent marijuana use generally predicted less frequent IPV for both men and women over the first 9 years of marriage,” the researchers wrote. Not only that, couples who both used marijuana frequently — compared to one spouse using it more than the other — were at the lowest risk for subsequent partner violence.

  16. This is interesting. Not only for its content but for its opening sentence. Bow we are led to beleove Maori arrived around 1200+. so
    At the northern tip of the East Cape, where the first Polynesian waka landed 1000 years ago, the highway sweeps away from the coast and crosses the Whangaparāoa River. Give it two or three years, reckons iwi leader Allen Waenga, and the view from the bridge will stop people in their tracks.

    Thats 200 years before the apparent arrival.

    The rest of the article is of interest.
    Not surprised at that as there were graves below the Rotoiti eruption ash in papamoa. That was well before the Maori came.

    More succinct in the vid clip.

    Viruses = exchanged daily. Virology is Nature.
    Immune system then starts to figure it out.

    Illnesses, just count how many get ill. Count how many people died. Sars-Covid-2 stuff all died.

    UN-WEF WHO is defining, to suit their agenda.
    So it will become the pandemic (contagious) of drinking too much alcohol 🙂

    Brings another way of viewing the same answer, as we also have come to understand in part.
