  1. Morning one and all, not quite so cold this morning thank goodness, it’s been a bitter few days and now back to what it is supposed to be at this time of the year. I had to put the cover on the vegetables to keep them frost free at nights for the last week, also a stray cat was shitting in the garden in among the beets and dug lots up nasty little critter.
    Have a good day and be safe out there.

      • Stuff really is scratching the bottom of the barrel to find things to report on. The amount of cant afford, someones got cancer, I lost a sock pieces they have dominates the site are getting old fast. Guess there is no real news in aowertwroa as they call it.

        • i think its due to 6yrs of feelz based everything from the ardern govt, they got addicted to reporting on warm fuzzy feels (but no delivery) and now their enemy is in power theyre choosing to report what they consider bad feelz to paint thr govt as cold hearted meanies when really its just a return to pre cindy life.

          question is will the sheeple get worn down by negative feelz reporting or are they strong minded enough to realise the country is in the shit and we cant cater for or make money from warm fuzzy feel good stuff?

      • Your are so right SB – It really is a crap report.
        ” In some districts, such as Counties Manukau and Bay of Plenty, health authorities cover the surcharge.”
        “in Bay of Plenty in 2021, about 40% of women aren’t having all necessary scans.”
        “Neither Eddy or Nuku had access to nationwide data on the rate of women missing the critical scans, but said anecdotal evidence suggested it was worsening “

        • if its actually increasing then i likely indicates the states bene breeders have ramped up production.

          “anecdotal evidence”= interviewed a keyboard to manufacture a story.

          seriously tho if this is an actual problem for expectant mothers then report them to oranga tamariki cuz a couple of missed scans will be the least of their kids worries, uplift the kid at birth so they dont get sucked into a life of poverty and crime.

    Is there a rainbow town? Perhaps wellington, dinners and central Auckland.

    Drivers warned as road ‘red carpets’ being rolled out in Aussie towns
    The simple red patch of road is being installed in more towns and localities around Queensland as authorities try to reduce rising road fatalities.
    In lieu of additional roadside signage, councils and state authorities are opting for less expensive, and arguably less obvious, ways to communicate with motorists. While some drivers were recently surprised to learn the meaning of a kerbside yellow line currently being embraced by one Sydney council, Queensland drivers are being told to watch out for the ‘red carpet’.

    • Could be a good move along with a few more signs advising what the correct speed actually is. If you’re travelling on unfamiliar roads anywhere near a town becomes a game of “what’s my limit” as restrictions change multiple times for no obvious reasons. Eg 15 different speed limits on the 36km between Masterton & Featherston.

      From Viking’s link.
      .
      …… state authorities are being urged be more transparent about “secretive” road crash data or risk having funding cut. …..
      .
      ….. Australian Automobile Association (AAA) welcomed a federal government push to force all states and territories to be transparent about road data or risk losing billions in commonwealth funding. ……..

      • Thats good as looking for speed sign on too high sign posts is a pain while trying to avoid some of the crappy drivers.
        The speed used to be painted on the road and should be so you don’t have too star gaze or miss it completely, which as they are having all sorts of numbers in all sorts of places, is certainly what happens.

    • Daft as.
      Sure it is cheap but if they have to remove (like the Hayr Rd, Mt Roskill raised crossing) it is expensive to remove.

      The car hating, K Marx worshipping, globalist fluff pieces of shite called Auckland trans-port have already done that in places. About 3 years ago.
      Then stopped
      There is red paint for about 1.2 metres on the road Plus a sign – safer speed zone or something.

  3. More prison beds needed but they aren’t the long-term answer to crime

    The Government last week announced that it is increasing funding for the Department of Corrections to build an additional 600 prison beds at Waikeria Prison. It’s the right decision.

    The funding announcement itself was an unfortunate shambles. Neither the Minister of Corrections nor the Prime Minister seemed to know the numbers of, well, anything. And even a hasty clarification sent out after a press conference still left numerous questions unanswered.

    While the press conference was much talked about, it’s a sidebar to something more interesting: that we are in an identical situation as we were in 2018. The only difference – and it’s an important difference – is the way we’re viewing it.

    In 2018, the recently elected Labour Government inherited a plan to build a mega prison at Waikeria. It was to be 1500 beds in total, and the cost was more than $1 billion. It didn’t like the cost and there was uncertainty as to what to do.

  4. The cost of arming NZ: Ageing gear, underpaid soldiers and a shortage of ammo
    A worldwide squeeze on the cost of ammunition threatens to undermine Defence Force training, as the Government grapples with staff shortages and ageing infrastructure.

    The price of an 105mm artillery shell has soared by around 600% since the military last purchased ammunition in 2020.

    And with each round now costing thousands of dollars, that makes live-fire training exercises an expensive undertaking.

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 pushed up both prices and production as allies raced to supply munitions to Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s front line.

    The yanks will be loving it. No wonder their mining and shipping up the Great lakes is flat out.

    BUT, and there is always apollies oine in the picture.spending other peoples money isn’t there.

    On Friday, Defence Minister JUDITH COLLINS announced a Budget injection of more than HALF A BILLION DOLLRS, ( dollars to boost pay and pay for equipment upgrades.

    Earlier this year, Defence Force chief Air Marshal Kevin Short painted a gloomy picture of stretched services.

  5. A joke for a Monday morning, apologies if it has been posted already.
    A young girl walks in on her parents having sex.
    “What are you doing?”, she snaps.
    Flustered, the mother makes something up.
    “Daddy is too full of air, I’m bouncing up and down on him to force it out”.
    Dubious, the girl turns on her heel and walks out.
    “You’re wasting your time….”, she says over her shoulder, “…the moment you’re gone, the nanny comes and blows him back up again!”
    (I’ll see myself out).

  6. Harry cries when he doesn’t get made Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps.
    Oh Lordy – where to start.

    “King Charles has reportedly caused his son, Prince Harry, to “tear” up with his most recent act.

    Upon hearing news of Prince William, 41, being made colonel-in-chief of the Army Air Corps, a royal expert has claimed Harry, 39, “felt marginalised” as he served with the unit in Afghanistan.

    “King Charles’ announcement … is a real kick in the teeth for the son who always felt marginalised and underrated,” expert Tom Quinn alleged to The Mirror. “He is said to have been in tears when he heard”.”

  8. There’s a great actor who can no longer remember his lines, and when word gets out, no one will hire him.
    After many years he finally finds a theatre that is prepared to give him a chance to shine again. The director says, “This is the most important part, but it has only one line. You walk out on stage at the opening, carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose with just one finger and thumb, sniff the rose deeply, and then say, ‘Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.’”

    The actor is thrilled. All day long he practices his line over and over again. Finally, showtime comes. The curtain goes up, the actor walks onto the stage, and with great passion delivers the line, “Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.”

    The theatre erupts. The audience is screaming with laughter, but the director is steaming! The actor looks stunned. “You damn fool!” cries the director. “You have ruined me!”

    “What happened?? I’m sure I didn’t forget my line!” “No!” screams the director. “You forgot the rose!”

  9. England’s vaccinated population had close to one million deaths in 23 months; the unvaccinated population had less than 61,000 deaths over the same period.
    Shocking data released by the U.K. government shows that over the past two years, the vaccinated population in England has suffered an outrageous number of deaths compared to the unvaccinated population, even though approximately 30 percent of the population has not even had a single dose of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine

    • According to the UKHSA’s figures, 63.4 million people were eligible for vaccination at that point. Therefore, as of July 2022, 30 percent of England’s population remained completely unvaccinated; 34 percent was not double vaccinated; and 50 percent was not triple vaccinated.

      However, the vaccinated population as a whole accounted for 95 percent of all COVID-19 deaths between January and May 2023, while the unvaccinated population accounted for just five percent.

      But it’s the fact that these deaths aren’t among the one-dose and two-dose vaccinated population that is truly horrifying. The vast majority are among those vaccinated four times, with this population accounting for 80 percent of all COVID-19 deaths, and 83 percent of all COVID-19 deaths among the vaccinated.

      0

    • If 30% of the population was never jabbed, it should be straight forward to compare the vaxed and un-vaxed populations to see if their death rates are statistically significantly different.

      Would there be any funding for that kind of a study?

  11. Nebraska Ends Income Taxes on Gold and Silver, Declares CBDC’s Are Not Lawful Money

    Gold and silver are the only forms of currency mentioned in our Constitution and with that comes the people’s ability to use it as such without penalty from the government. Saving, and using, gold and silver is our right and one of the only checks and balances to our federal government’s unending devaluation of our paper currency.

    Taxpayers often realize ‘gains’ when converting the monetary metals back into Federal Reserve notes even though the ‘gains’ do not reflect an increase in real value but rather reflect the currency’s ongoing devaluation.

    Despite the lack of “real” gains, the Internal Revenue Service imposes capital gains taxes on such transactions. Nebraska has now opted out at the state level, declining to carry the IRS’s position into the definition of Nebraska income.

    • Ah Dawn raids

      I love the smell of coconut in the morning.
      ————————————-
      The dawn raids were crackdowns in New Zealand from 1973 to 1979 and then sporadically afterward on alleged illegal overstayers from the Pacific Islands.
      The raids were first introduced in 1973 by Prime Minister Norman Kirk’s Labour government, who discontinued them in April 1974. However, they were later reintroduced and intensified by Rob Muldoon’s Third National government.[1][2] These operations involved special police squads conducting often aggressive raids on the homes

    Pelosi Dismantled In Real Time In Masterclass On Populism.

    Ladies and gentlemen, populism is not a threat to democracy, but I’ll tell you what is. It is elites ordering social media to censor political opponents. It’s police shutting down dissenters, be it anti-monarchists in this country or gender-critical voices here, or last week in Brussels, the National Conservative Movement.

    I’ll tell you what a threat to democracy is. It’s Brussels, DC, Westminster, the mainstream media, big tech, big Pharma, corporate collusion and the Davos cronies. The threat to democracy comes from those who write off ordinary people as “deplorable.” The threat to democracy comes from those who smear working people as “racists.” The threat to democracy comes from those who write off working people as “populists.”

            even 14/15yrs ago when i was broadacre farming all you had to do was turn the machine around at the end of the paddock and flip a few switches, now even that has been automated.
            i dont even think theres the capability to fully manually operate the newest gear, if the computer dosent go or have rtk signal nothing will function. tractor will move but you cant use those fancy seeders etc.

            95% of issues at work are electronic, very few mechanical breakdowns and its a right arse cuz you cant fix it without a magic laptop. sensors and computer glitches cost a fucking fortune to keep ontop of, i swear some shit has a timer on it for planned obselecence type thing so the dealerships can keep screwing us, dont even replace parts they just plug in, look confused or frustrated for 20mins, reset it and leave.

    At a time when universities are understandably nervous regarding the establishment of the University Advisory Group (UAG) and the Science System Advisory Group (SSAG) it may seem strange – or even fool-hardy – to state that there are long-standing issues in the tertiary sector that need correction.

    Yet even more concerning is the inability – or I should say, the increasing unwillingness – of many students to ‘think’. Part of this is our fault – at tertiary level and in the NCEA schooling system. The expectation has grown, especially over the past decade or so, of being told what to think and being expected to regurgitate it, unthinkingly.

    • The rot set in when universities became mills for vocational qualifications. In the race to become bigger & better they usurped the functions of Polytechs. Then Polytechs morphed into poor quality universities.

      One is not the other. It wouldn’t be hard to argue that the only varsity qualifications should be of the Arts or pure science.

      • Early 1990’s Clark announced the “knowledge wave” encouraging school leavers to attend university. It was supposed to grow a highly educated economy but sadly many students were just average IQ seat warmers. The economy needs people growing produce and manufacturing not extra elitist claptrap.

        • If the knowledge wave produces science graduates, engineers & mathematicians then it is all the richer for its investment in education.

          When its cream leave varsities with degrees in wimmin’s studies, politics, mat weaving & climate change then not so much.

    • Remember the lunatics with their “slip, slap, slop” campaigns. Started in the 1970s & has got to the stage where kids are not just protected from dangerous UV……..they are never exposed to any sun & are kept indoors or wrapped up like creatures from outer space by their insane mothers even at the beach.

      I’d wager my left nut that Vit D deficiency is behind the initial “epidemic”.

      • lots of you nutters will blame the vax but its been trending up for years.
        theres been huge lifestyle changes over the past few decades.
        ultra processed foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and pretty much everyone now has a radiation emitting device in their pocket along with 24/7 bombardment of various radiowaves to run their internet/ph calls etc.

        food imo is likely the major cause, the amount of unnatural shit and chemicals we ingest is unreal and near impossible to link to anything bad healthwise because we all consume so much of it and theres tons of other stuff big food/ big chem will blame it on anyways.

        • Fully agree SB. People are eating constant crap cooked in seed oil every day and all the preservatives, etc. The marketing by food companies is very enticing and the food is quick and tasty.

          Too many can’t be bothered cooking a meal from scratch which is far healthier. We all enjoy a night off from cooking but some have forgotten how their kitchen appliances work.

          • even the stuff cooked from scratch in the kitchen is full of dodgy stuff you dont have a clue wtf it is.

            look at all the labels on your ingredients and sauces etc, just numbers, google the numbers and then scratch your head.
            then theres the leaching of chemicals from packaging, your non stick cookware and utensils.
            unless youve homegrown organic veges then its had numerous herbicides and insecticides sprayed on then.

            theres no escaping it really unless you live a very bland boring eating life, you can minimise but not eliminate the bad stuff.

            • consumed the stuff since their time in the womb?
              shit genetics being passed on too, alot of people alive and breeding that wouldnt have back in the day… the miracle of modern medicine////
              we have a couple of mates under 30 that have had nasty cancers and are now trying for kids, cant tell me dodgy genes arent gunna be passed on.

              also i think stress/workload and lack of sleep plays a big part too.

              like any disaster its not caused by 1 thing but a series of events and mistakes that compound and amplify the outcome.

            • It’s the percentages that are up. Old are getting cancer but it’s the young that are skewing the figures. Those under fifty don’t normally get these cancers, so their figures are showing as being higher.

    • I wouldn’t get too excited about their ability to “discern supernatural phenomena.”.

      They reckon their God can zero in on a schoolboy masturbating but He can’t see a priest sodomising a choirboy over the parish altar! 🙂

  19. …. Elon Musk @elonmusk
    Not trying to win anything. I just don’t think we should be suppressing Australian’s rights to free speech. ….

    The billionaire owner of a social media platform battling Australia’s internet cop says he is not trying to win anything, after the eSafety Commissioner lost their latest court skirmish. ……
    https://au.news.yahoo.com/internet-cop-court-loss-over-004233990.html

    But the systemic E-Safety Commission is still looking to learn how to be successful next time.
    As always those authorities figure they also have unlimited funding from Other Peoples Money, the taxpayers. & wi th no accountability. 🙁

    My petition evidence is now on the Parliament website with all of the vaccine injury stories

    @RCR_NZ
    they can never say they didn’t know what they did to people and the harm their policies caused. Despite all their road blocks trying to stop this petition even happening, making me revise accusations against the medical council .. all I wanted was for the vaccine injury stories to be up there.. So they never can deny in a court of law they were not advised of the harm AND DEATH their tyrannical policies bought upon people !

    I am proud that I got it there in the end . and still today my petition is the ONLY time inside parliament that the words SAFETY and EFFICACY of the Covid 19 vaccines has ever been spoken !!

    Even
    @TanyaUnkovichMP
    in your speech you never ever mentioned VACCINE SAFETY .. Those in that building need that are “so called” on our side need to grow a set of “girly balls” and speak up !!

    • Don’t expect the corporate crime syndicate masquerading as our democratic parliament and the treasonous weasels working for it to admit any wrong doing to helping save humanity with a safe and effective vaxxine that they never took but coerced others to .

  21. Street-Sleeping Numbers Soar as Housing Crisis Worsens
    A “heartbreaking” housing crisis is pushing an increasing number of people onto the streets as advocates renew calls for a levy on short-term rentals to fund crucial services.

    The annual street count, released on May 10, revealed a 25 percent spike in the tally of people sleeping rough in New South Wales (NSW).

    Officials found 2037 sleeping on the streets during the February headcount, up from 1623 a year earlier.

    Some of the largest increases were in coastal areas, including a near-80 percent rise in rough sleepers in the Coffs Harbour council region.

    Homelessness NSW chief executive Dom Rowe called for the state government to introduce a levy of at least 7.5 percent on short-term rental accommodation, similar to a measure Victoria introduced in late 2023.

    Just another attack on property owners on behalf of the hotels.

  22. A man was getting a haircut prior to a trip to Rome.
    He mentioned the trip to the barber, who responded, “Why would anyone want to go there. It’s crowded and dirty and full of Italians. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”
    “We’re taking United,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”
    “United!” exclaimed the barber. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”
    “We’ll be at the downtown International Marriott.”
    “That dump! That’s the worst hotel in Rome. The rooms are small, the service is surly, and they’re overpriced. So, whatcha doing when you get there?”
    “We’re going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope.”
    “That’s rich,” laughed the barber. “You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it!”
    A month later, the man again came in for his regular haircut. The barber asked him about his trip to Rome.

    “It was wonderful,” explained the man. “Not only were we on time in one of United’s brand-new planes, but it was over-booked and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a beautiful young stewardess who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel! Well, it was great! They’d just finished a $25 million remodeling job and now it’s the finest hotel in the city. They were overbooked too, so they apologized and gave us the presidential suite at no extra charge!”
    “Well,” muttered the barber. “I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”
    “Actually, we were quite lucky, for as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked in. As I knelt down, he spoke to me.”
    “What did he say?”

    “He said, ‘Where’d you get the shitty haircut’?”
