    • Al Gore-
      The man who tried to ban Rock Music as it was the ‘Work of the Devil’!
      Yet the Left adore this absolute nutjob….

    • C’mon! Get it right.

      By today’s standards you should be saying President Al Gore.

      After all he was declared winner by the networks in the 2000 election. If Biden is the President elect now, then we have to be consistent and give Al Gore the correct title.

      Clearly, the fact that the courts found that Al Gore had tried to cheat (in exactly the same way as Biden has) and thus he was not President is was as irrelevant then as it is now?

  1. An expensive problem looming for EV owners?

    Nissan Leaf owner with ‘range anxiety’ told new battery for $13,000 car would cost $121,000
    https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/nissan-leaf-owner-range-anxiety-told-new-battery-13-000-car-would-cost-121-v1?auto=6208261972001

    “They quoted me $121,000 for a replacement battery from Japan!” she told TVNZ1’s Fair Go.

    Zoe also looked at second-hand replacement batteries. These were considerably more reasonable, but at $14,000 or so, they were still more expensive than her actual car without a huge increase in expected range. It was at this point Zoe came to Fair Go to see what we made of the situation.

    Finally, a company called Transport Solutions was able to give Zoe the correct reading.

    It turns out all that’s needed is an app called Leaf Spy along with what’s known as an OBD2 device that you can buy online. Simple once you know. With this tool to hand, Transport Solutions could tell Zoe her current battery state of health was 63.36 per cent.

    • One big fake beat up news story from the woke fair go, with no evidence shown of the $121000 quote and it turns out her car battery was in exactly the condition to expected for its age. Guess they can’t pick on Trump anymore so have to make up other fake news

    • Better alternative would be an equivalent sized vehicle with a tried and tested in concept and application, internal combustion engine.

      Why flog yourself to that extent when a realistic transport solution, without range issues, is readily available. The carbon issue, if there is one, and all things considered, is probably in favour of the internal combustion engine.

  2. My take on the Greta poster is while I do not accept that me paying more in taxes, rates, excise, fees, will alter climate in any way whatsoever; there are elected and unelected appointments who will nevertheless proceed to implement increases to my living costs. We have councils considering rates contributions “to deal with climate change” for example.

    This scam is way bigger than Greta. Official do gooders and others with alternative motivations will attempt to milk this as far as they can.

    • Jones has only ever been into commercial property so his comment regarding residential rental property is unremarkable. Those who have been in residential rentals ( myself 30+ years ) have done spectacularly well. If your view is long term it doesnt matter when you climb on board. My view is that everybody should have at least a minimum of one residential rental plus their own home for long term financial gain and security.

            Most of this new mortgage is on the owners own house. As such they have to feed the mortgage.
            That’s what makes rentals betyter. someone else pays the mortgage and once you get the numbers right then it makes a lot of sense.
            Reckon om paying 7% and you have it about right. We are going to have low rates for a few years. Makes sense to go 5 or 7 years at a low rate. Oh it costs slightly more but set and forget.

                That is very true.
                I have found that an important part of happiness is being able to recognize contrasts. You cannot really appreciate the good until you have experienced the bad.
                (Having said that, don’t bother to go looking for bad experiences. You will encounter them soon enough.)

                While it is true that I have relative ease and comfort right now, I am always aware that life can change in the blink of an eye.

                In addition to having enough money to keep the debt collectors away and to have a roof over my head, I want to be affluent in a non-monetary sense.
                – Spatial affluence
                – Temporal affluence
                – Good health for oneself and one’s family
                – Good friends
                – At least one nemesis (to keep me sharp and on my toes)

          Things are a changing.
          communities will change as more people work from home. Has to be good. Schools will need to cahnge as well although from their track record the education people won’t get that right.

            Very true. My daughter is an interface designer for a computing company (her job is to design interfaces so that people (especially the less computer savy) can navigate through the program more easily).
            Since the return to Level 1, she has only been going to the head office once a week (instead of daily as she did before Covid-19). She loves not having to commute, but misses her co-workers and their lunches in the CBD.

      Our nett immigration for the last three months was 1700 people.
      I guess in someone’s world these numbers stack up but certainly not in mine.
      Auckland market is going to crash big time which will lead to Tauranga and then Hamilton following. Usual cycle.
      Remember in Auckland many of these new consents will involve trashing the old property so still no older cheap houses.

    The pharmacists eyes got big and he exclaimed, “Lord have mercy! I can’t give you cyanide to kill your husband! That’s against the law! I’ll lose my license! They’ll throw both of us in jail! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You CANNOT have any cyanide!”
    The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.

He has a friend who went to the States to witness the election first hand (Trump fan). While she was there they brought in the MIQ allocation system. She got as far as Dubai on her way home, and was not allowed to board her NZ flight. The earliest slot that she’s been able to get in MIQ here, is early Feb. She’s been in Dubai airport for four days, and has no visa for UAE. How many people can afford to be stuck in another country for 3 months; that’s if she’s allowed out of the airport.

      David Farrar, a well-known New Zealand political commentator, posted a tweet on Monday posing his suggestions for Presidential-elect Joe Biden’s new cabinet.

      Some of his recommendations were former presidential candidate Mitt Romney for secretary of state, attorney Geoffrey Berman as attorney-general, retired US army general David Petraeus for director of national intelligence and retired politician Paul Ryan in charge of trade – all staunch Republicans.

        “Suggesting Democrats appoint Republicans to the most important Cabinet positions, is the same as winning a championship and being asked to give it to the losing team.

        “It’s just insane – knock it off.”

        Omar made global headlines as the first Somali American and the first woman of colour to represent Minnesota in Congress. She is also part of a group of Congresswomen dubbed the ‘Squad’ – four women of colour under 50 who hold seats in the House of Representatives.

    “Voters in Pennsylvania were held to different standards simply based on how they chose to cast their ballot, and we believe this two-tiered election system resulted in potentially fraudulent votes being counted without proper verification or oversight,” Matt Morgan, Trump’s general counsel said.

    The Trump campaign is seeking an emergency injunction to stop Pennsylvania officials from certifying Joe Biden’s victory.

    Poll watchers in Wayne County filed a lawsuit alleging Detroit officials knowingly committed mass voter fraud.

    There are other allegations of voter fraud in Clark County, Nevada, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Atlanta, Georgia.

    Project Veritas has released videos of USPS whistleblowers in Pennsylvanian and Michigan claiming their supervisors told them to backdate ballots.
