  1. I hate it when this happens – Going away today up to Blenheim /Nelson for 10 days or so – woke at 2.15 and mind racing with every thing I can wind myself up with, so have arisen and perhaps I may find sleep, even for an hour or so when I go back. Need to start watering as much as possible before I go – couldn’t do as much as planned yesterday as planned – very strong winds and may have blown the plants over.

    • Good morning, We had incredible winds but so much rain I think that the plants are saturated here in the Waikato. Hope you have an incredible time in Blenheim/Nelson
      It is cold here and I have put the duvet back on the bed, Autumn has come early here though it is supposed to turn again into nice hot weather well who knows.
      Stay safe and be careful it seems things have started to heat up with the new haka and willie Jacksons rant then there was the statue of Captain Cook in Christchurch being defaced. Liarbor certainly did a great job of racial division in New Zealand.

      Try and have a good day everyone

      • What do you mean by “helps”, AH? Explosive toots are one of life’s simple pleasures, they’re free, and an endless source of entertainment. Unfortunately Mrs Saggy doesn’t see it this way. Even the occasional Dutch Oven doesn’t impress her much.

        • Saggy, I did not realise you were married to my wife too.

          She also speaks to me sternly and those Dutchmen and their Ovens do not impress her at all. Possibly a bit more training over the passage of time will ease the perception of my wife that I am “just a disgusting little man.”

  2. A Native Academic claims that the Early Settler was the most peaceful of people before Jim Cook sailed over the horizon. She has a long study on Maori kindness. Life have changed and she has researched and written a book on Maori now living with violence, the book “is a repository of Indigenous wisdom.”

    Early Maori were so kind they didn’t know how to thump anyone, didn’t use any sort of weapon upon another person, just sat in front of their Telly watching Coro Street with their feet up, dog lying beside their slippers, dutiful wife bring a cup of tea, oh life was so beautiful.

    “It starts with pre-Colonisation because I really wanted to begin from the point that violence didn’t occur back then – we had systems, processes and tikanga in place that our tupuna lived by that kept everybody safe.”

    Colonialists have an awful lot to answer for.//

    • hooli, im pretty sure it started off with “maori know violence well”… and that link is the result of leftist spin doctors and feelz.

      if they think the most violent and murderous group in nz is the answer to stopping violence then why dont the leave decolonisation to the most colonising whiteys we have in nz??? would make sense wouldnt it

      • True Story. I am a failed White Colonialist.

        My work involves Special Need Children.

        A few months ago, I happened to have to go to the home of two Natives who lived together, one morning who have one of these Special Need Children. The child was standing by the front gate. Native Mum and Native dad were standing on the front lawn facing each other and clearly very unhappy with each other, for they were punching the living shit out of each other. Punch for punch. Toe to toe.

        I don’t think any eggs were going to be cooked in that household that morning.

        I grabbed the child and took him to his Special Needs School as Native Mum and Native Dad continued to deal to each other, just as Plod pulled up to speak kindly to the combatants.

        This behaviour was definitely caused by Colonialism, nothing else. It stood out in that case.////

          • Saggy, unfortunately in my work I see it often. It is just not the violence this child witnesses, he is a prime candidate for Diabetes at a very early age. At age 8 the young fella is just huge, the problem is the food given to this boy for his morning tea/lunch (no State sponsored School lunches at the Special Needs School he attends) but a typical lunch is (and sit down)
            6x cooked sausages.
            2x Pies
            1x bag chips
            1x packet of biscuits
            1.x bottle of Fanta

            The School has spoken to the parents about the quantity and type of food but it just does not register. The future wellbeing for this boy is dim.

      As there are numerous records showing that ‘pre-European’ Maori were extremely violent and not averse to indulging in cannibalism with their captives (Totara Pa in Thames being but one of many sites where this practice occurred), this would seem to be yet another case of ‘Willful Blindness’ by a part-Maori ‘Academic’ and a determined desire to ignore the historical facts and rewrite history to suit a pre-determined narrative.

      Based on previous and similar events, don’t be surprised to find that that should the learned professor ever be challenged, she will inevitably fall back onto the ‘racist’ defence to justify her writings. .

      Unfortunately ‘Facts are facts’ and no amount of politically-inspired ‘revision’ will ever change them,

      Modern ‘journalists’, lacking the skills to challenge such narratives, simply accept that such diatribes a=re’ true’ and publish accordingly,

    • ……”violence didn’t occur back then – we had systems, processes and tikanga in place that our tupuna lived by that kept everybody safe.””……

      In a family context she may have a point. There were checks & balances; eg if a male was pulping his wife her brothers were duty-bound to intervene. Children were free range until adolescence & any supervision was from older siblings & cousins.

      Yet what she skirts is inter tribal violence where there were no limits to treachery & cruelty. Tauiwi were killed slowly or or enslaved & treated as vermin.

      Pre European Maori were introspective & territorial. If Professor Denise Wilson confined her opinions to early micro society she may deserve to be listened to. Yet she doesn’t & her theories if extended to pan Maori behaviour are rubbish.

    • The book fails to mention the source of Maori wisdom they acquired after paddling their Galactic Whaka to Mars were the Anunaki performed brain surgery to implant the knowledge of the universe, unforunately the Maori who underwent the surgery was murdered by a memebr of Tai Spewi and the knowledge was lost.

      • Just chipping away , managed to get a couple units straight into storage rather than through dryer. Wheat sitting at 15% yesterday but with sleaty shit coming through straw was a bit tough to go through combine. Next couple of weeks look good though and with the dry starting to bite its not getting wet from the ground where it is lying down.

  4. Another totally arrogant power woman who needs a reality check.
    She disagrees with 9 Supreme curt Justices of the USA Supreme Court.

    Colorado’s Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, says she is disappointed with the Supreme Court’s 9-0 decision allowing former President Donald Trump to appear on the Colorado ballot in the upcoming Super Tuesday caucuses.
    In a recent decision, the Supreme Court ruled President Trump couldn’t be removed from the ballot by individual states, overturning a Colorado Court’s decision that found him ineligible as a candidate and disqualified from the state ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. That part of the Amendment disqualifies people from holding office, civil or military, if they have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion.”
    In a March 4 MSNBC interview posted to her X account, Ms. Griswold said her larger reaction to the news has been one of “disappointment.”

    “I do believe that states should be able under our constitution to bar oath-breaking insurrectionists,” she said.

    “Ultimately, this decision leaves open or leaves open the door for Congress to act to pass authorizing legislation, but we know that Congress is a nearly non-functioning body. So ultimately, it will be up to the American voters to save our democracy in November.”
    According to a press release from Ms. Griswold’s office, a lawsuit was filed by voters on Sept. 6, 2023, seeking to bar President Trump from the Colorado ballot under the provisions as per Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. They cited President Trump’s alleged role in riling up protestors, which they claim led to the Jan. 6, 2021, breach of the Capitol, as evidence of engaging in insurrection.

    • A comment on TCT thread says

      ” @GeromanAT

      The resignation of Cookie Nuland is primarily due to the upcoming investigation by the FBI and the Office of Special Operations. investigations of the US Department of Justice, where 10.5 billion dollars were spent on Maidan in Ukraine (the public was told about 5 billion), as well as where 120 billion dollars were spent on open items and almost the same amount on secret items of the budget of the CIA and the Pentagon with 2018.
      The fourth command inspection from the United States in six months in Kyiv is still working. The results of the work and reporting are strictly classified. They are transferred immediately to the Secretary of State under the supervision of the FBI.
      The fun is just beginning.

      Not only do I find the amounts of money “amazing” but I find it hard to understand how they spend that sort of money. The kick backs must be huuuuge!

      Victoria Nuland Leaving Post While Ukraine On The Ropes, US Policy In Shambles

      Indeed, many already know her as Victoria-‘Fuck the EU’-Nuland and for essentially running foreign policy in Europe, stretching back through the Obama years as then Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, where many of the problems which sparked the disastrous and tragic Russia-Ukraine war were first set in motion.

    • Just a bit more of NZ’s farming land changing purpose from lamb production to being divided up into playgrounds for more of Wellington’s pretentious wanking class.

      The wealthy are great pioneers as Martinborough found out to its cost. Fifty years ago a few of the capital’s entrepreneurs decided that the climate suited grapes & suddenly the sleepy service town was bought up & blighted by social climbers determined to be part of the new weekend wine quaffing aristocracy. Working people sold up & left town until there weren’t even sufficient community minded residents to man the ambulance or Fire Brigade.

      Yet things go in cycles & the new lifestyle blocks may not sell as readily as envisaged. The trendy money has left Martinborough & moved twenty clicks NW to Greytown.

        He says Martinborough’s reputation is crying out to be repositioned and that something is “wrong” when two hectares on the outskirts of Queenstown can fetch $3.65 million while local real estate agents advise listing four-hectare lifestyle lots in Martinborough at $800,000 a pop.
        “Surely we are worth at least half of Queenstown?” he said.

        “We don’t have an international airport – although we do have one only an hour away; and while we don’t have a lake, we do have a wine village.”
        —————————-
        Yeah
        Tell ‘im he’s dreaming.

        Yeah, no scenic mountains.
        No low humidity
        No three ski fields nearby

        No lake but a ‘river’ by Martinborough that for years you could drive through until there was actual rain then used the emergency bridge.

        Yes, I used to live in Martinborough as a young’un. Have not been back in 15 years. It is out of the way, pretentious and has cunts like Paul Collins living there.
        Best avoided.

        So they want to build homes on a floodplain.
        …. the very issue that was prominent a year ago and where councils are using ratepayers money to by back houses THEY approved on flood plains in previous years.
        What could go wrong ?

        Queenstown is not even a floodplain but still had massive flooding in 1999 and last September.
        Duh.

        • ……”Have not been back in 15 years. It is out of the way, pretentious and has cunts like Paul Collins living there.”…….

          Wise move. If it was bad then rest assured that it’s now worse. Personally I look back fondly to fifty years ago when on my occasional deliveries down that way I’d park up the truck in Hawkin’s yard, order my shark & shavings & have a jug or two in the Martinborough pub or the Pukemanu while they were cooking. All gone now. Where working men took the healing waters poofs eat quiche & gargle muck made out of grapes.

          The emergency bridge rots unused. Lousy concrete crumbled & made it unsafe.

          But I’ll haul you up on one point. The proposed lifestyle development is the old Rapaki Station on Shooting Butts road well above Martinborough & to the east. It may blow away but it will never flood.

  6. National’s new focus on transport spending has the “two wheels good, four wheels bad” handwringers in a tiss. The idea that those doing the paying (usually referred to as motorists) are not going to be compelled to fund the preferences of those who worship the bicycle (usually referred to as bludgers) is anathematic to those who know best.

    Julie Anne Genter is not impressed:

    ……“Many things can be said about this transport policy from Simeon Brown. It’s not about an efficient and effective network,” she said. “In some ways it’s all coherent with the Govt’s [sic] other actions: it punishes the poor most and harms the natural world.”……

    According to Zillow, the income needed to comfortably afford a home in the US has leapt 80% since 2020, far exceeding what the BLS reports has being a 23% increase in median household income over the same period.

    • Marsden Point should never been allowed to close, or be sold off as it is a matter of National Security.

      Muldoon for all the criticism of him, pushed for the “Think Big” projects, like the Hydrocracker at Marsden Point, the Gas to Gasoline Plant at Motunui etc to strive for fuel and energy sovereignty. It was just that those that followed him, mainly Labour, had the inability to have Muldoons’ great vision.

  8. Karl Marx lived much of his life in London. He had a handler from British Intelligence, David Urquhart, and worked as an English surrogate for many years. Urquhart and Marx worked hard to undermine Russia, which is the genesis of the Russiaphobia we see today. Anyways. Hard for Lefties to explain, this period of Marx. Hard for England to explain, what what you mean England helped create communism?

  9. Have been looking at the map of Antartica All those great explorers have their names on a peak, mountain, point, or lake somewhere down there Not one Maori name amongst any of them. And yet we were told Maori were great explorers of that far away land. If this was a big fat lie, why should we believe anything else they say.
    I guess that’s tucked away in the future for yet another tweety tribunal claim.

    • Look Ed, according to my Spouse, guiding light of this person TAH, the Worlds Greatest Known Procrastinator, Beer Guzzler, carrier of the Double Chin and well known Dull Person, you have not looked hard enough at the Native naming of the great mountains of Te Antarctica. Some have already been named, it is just the Geograffic Board of Ao Te A Rower have not printed maps with their names since before Jimmy Cook left Plymouth, England, on 26th August 1768 bound for some Native interaction in Poverty Bay.

      Let me point out, the best known of these Mountains in Te Antarctica is a Volcano named after the Maori Inventor of the Telephone, Te Ringaringa.

      Even the Indians have a Mountain in Antarctica named after their first Maori PM, Modi Operandus.

    A Fire and Emergency spokesperson said an investigation into the cause of the fire was now complete.

    “The fire was accidentally caused after an e-scooter that was charging went into thermal runaway and exploded.”

    A thermal runaway is a process that is accelerated by increased temperature, in turn releasing energy that further increases temperature.

    Commissioner Farley said these are the first deaths associated with the batteries.

    “Sadly yes, unfortunately lithium-ion battery fires across the planet have increased in the past couple of years — we recently received information from the US about the increase in the number of lithium-ion batteries in their country,” he said.
