  1. I had a busy day yesterday so missed the sky news Australia Bolt report headed “NZs backstabbing Govt is sucking up to the Chinese dictatorship ”
    WTF has happened to our once proud honourable tenacious New Zealand, Ardern has sold us out to the filthy Chinese communist pigs.

      • Don’t disagree with Bolt on Ardern’s appalling Foreign Policy but found his comments on “the Anzac spirit” a bit rich given their treatment of New Zealand Permanent Residents over there.

        • Crumby, whats your problem with the way kiwis are treated there?
          Its just acommon sense policy, they have enough trouble with their own marive popularion bludging the dole and certainly dont need a flood of our natives soaking up welfare in aussie.

          We still get healthcare in aussie, i think the arrangement is fine and nz should adopt the same policy for any foreigner that wishes to immigrate to nz, it would free us of alot of burdens esp the pasifika sponges.

          • It is fairly obvious what the problem is if you engage your mind.
            Many of those sent home have lived their lives in Aussie since a very young age.
            Some indeed only passed through here on their families way to Aussie. So they have been a part of that community for most of their lives which means they educated them and trained them in their way of life.
            How can we as Kiwi’s be responsible for the shit job the Aussies did of raising kids in their village?

            The older ones not so much bit its clear that they expanded their bad behaviour over there. again hardly our fault.
            Unfortunately all the bleeding hearts will lend them another tit and Andrew will let them free to terrorize the rest of us.
            So basically both sets of politicians are scum like these people.

      • Thanks for posting the link Alice. That was riveting viewing.

        It was staggering to see that vile pig with drawing all over her ugly face representing our once fine country. What level have we stooped to?

        Also notable was that Andrew Bolt drew a very careful distinction between us as New Zealanders and our depraved ‘government’. Good on him. I would tend towards a similar differentiation between ordinary Chinese people and their dictatorial rulers.

      • Andrew Bolt is giving us a hard message. We do have an elected government and we have to accept that. The response from me to Andrew Bolt is that I am embarrassed by stupid statement by Ministers O’Connor and Mahuta. Both are supposedly experienced but appear to have learnt nothing. Both make me cringe at the nonsense dropped on international media on our behalf.

        I do not accept this poor behaviour towards a key and long-standing ally. We do need Australia and we need political leadership that will standup to the oppression China is projecting. We are small, and while we have to accept that our influence is slight in international matters, we still need to retain our integrity.

        Tossing Australia aside is not supported by me. Our governments failure of ethics, courage and of integrity is embarrassing.

        • Sure, and where you going to sell our apples, cherries, crayfish, fish, logs, dairy products, kiwifruit and many other products.
          Better to be seen and not heard than seen and hurt.
          China is attacking all manner of countries currently, emboldened by the disgrace that is the President of the USA. Perhaps you haven’t noticed.
          China has been printing money for years. They figured out that by doing so they can own the means.
          Here a bit of history and tomorrows history in the making.
          https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Markets/Commodities/China-determined-to-build-iron-ore-hub-in-Africa-as-Australia-goes-Quad

          Instead of reading the crap that we get for news reading this paper is better if you want to know what Asia is doing. Makes our Princess look so stupid.
          But having talked to someone who came back from 16 years in china and involved with our trading my opinion would be that we sit quietly and wait and keep our business well separate from what is a Muslim/ Chinese argument. After all we don’t criticise Australia for the treatment of their Abourigines and neither we should. (well politically) and that despite the Aussies banning our fruit and other things for many years.

          Will they send Ron Breierly home. Jacinda is taking away his gong and his offending would appear to be in Australia? Now that would really piss the slag off. We are left wondering why the spiteful revenge? ( not in any way condoning his behaviour, just the spite that goes with the vengeance given her own and her parties behaviour. Perhaps we should go through all their laptops? Thaink about willies sup[port of the Roast Busters!)

          • Very good Viking
            Further to that is this point poached from the Wall Street Journal.

            Wall Street Journal, Matt Pottinger, former deputy White House national security adviser, concluded:
            .
            “Beijing’s message is unmistakable: You must choose. If you want to do business in China, it must be at the expense of American values.
            You will meticulously ignore the genocide of ethnic and religious minorities inside China’s borders; you must disregard that Beijing has reneged on its major promises—including the international treaty guaranteeing a ‘high degree of autonomy’ for Hong Kong; and you must stop engaging with security-minded officials in your own capital unless it’s to lobby them on Beijing’s behalf.
            .
            “Another notable element of Beijing’s approach is its explicit goal of making the world permanently dependent on China, and exploiting that dependency for political ends.
            Mr. Xi has issued guidance, institutionalized this month by his rubber-stamp parliament, that he’s pursuing a grand strategy of making China independent of high-end imports from industrialized nations while making those nations heavily reliant on China for high-tech supplies and as a market for raw materials. In other words, decoupling is precisely Beijing’s strategy—so long as it’s on Beijing’s terms.
            .
            “Even more remarkable, the Communist Party is no longer hiding its reasons for pursuing such a strategy.
            In a speech Mr. Xi delivered early last year…he said China ‘must tighten international production chains’ dependence on China’ with the aim of ‘forming powerful countermeasures and deterrent capabilities.’
            .
            “This phrase — ‘powerful countermeasures and deterrent capabilities’ — is party jargon for offensive leverage. Beijing’s grand strategy is to accumulate and exert economic leverage to achieve its political objectives around the world.
            .
            “CEOs will find it increasingly difficult to please both Washington and Beijing…. Chinese leaders, as mentioned, are issuing high-decibel warnings that multinationals must abandon such values as the price of doing business in China.
            Like sailors straddling two boats, American companies are likely to get wet.
            .
            “Beijing is trying to engineer victory from the mind of a single leader; free societies like ours harness the human spirit. Therein lies our ultimate advantage.
            The Communist Party’s leaders are right about one thing: American CEOs, their boards and their investors have to decide which side they want to help win.”

            https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/17219/china-free-speech-europe
            .
            Although this is played through “free speech” and “human rights”, with the EU, with Gatestone.
            The Chinese have all in play with economics, like the Chinese Great Leap Forward, which killed over 30 million of their own. 5 Year Plans.
            We must realize that we are playing with fire, and need to make or find leaders that know how to be careful, wise, and strong in dealing with China.
            The Chinese are “playing for keeps.”

            The delusion of NZ’s multi culti diversity to rip and bring down our own allies and ultimately ourselves is crap.
            It is really clean sweeping our own legs and I suspect following an agenda that will not turn out they way those “useful idiots” believe.

  2. Eh? I never bothered to wonder how long the vaccine was supposed to be effective, but it looks like the first half of the team of 5 million is going to be needing their 3rd and 4th shots before the second half of the team of 5 million have had their first jab.

  3. Kea was rowing on Lake Taupo when suddenly a Taniwha attacked & grabbed him from his boat.

    He panicked & shouted, “God help me!” then suddenly the Taniwha & everything around him just stopped.

    A voice from the heavens boomed, “You say you don’t believe in me but now you are asking for my help?”

    Kea looked up & pleaded: “Well, ten seconds ago I didn’t believe in the Taniwha either!”

      • I’ve been absolutely amazed by the high rate of vaccination in Israel and (if reports are correct) the moves afoot by the authorities to curb their citizens’ basic human rights with a vaccine passport.

        I really thought that Israel was a bastion of democracy and freedom . I’ve been there and the people seem to be generally well educated too. So how come they’re allowing themselves to be treated like sheep all of a sudden? It doesn’t make sense.

        • I agree on that one EK.
          Very odd and inconsistent with the decades push-back when threatened.

          To add to the weirdness ‘The NZ Government Propaganda Arm’
          know as ‘Stuffed’ have produced a strange propaganda piece:-
          https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/124673132/were-at-the-end-kiwi-expat-in-israel-on-life-getting-back-to-normal-after-mass-vaccination

          “Israel was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic – it reported over 831,000 infections. But in just a few months, after launching a mass vaccination campaign, life is “back to normal”.

          As of March 15, according to the World Health Organisation, 9.7 million​ vaccine doses had been administered in Israel.
          A total of 5.18m​ people, which is over half the population, have received at least one dose.
          A “green pass” has since been introduced allowing vaccinated people exclusive access to gyms, hotels and theatres and concerts.” [there is your catch, no vax you are unpersoned ]

          and
          “For the first time in almost a year, he met a friend for coffee. At another catch-up, the first question he asked was “is everybody here vaccinated?”.

          Face masks remain prevalent and physical distancing is still common, but society has largely resumed its pre-Covid habits.
          Ross, who is originally from Auckland, admitted he was among those hesitant about the vaccine at first.
          “I was hesitant, I can’t lie and say that I wasn’t,” he said.

          After educating himself and hearing from a bevy of experts, [blah blah blah] he made the decision to get the jab to protect not just himself, but his family, friends and colleagues.”

          Don’t read any more
          It is aimed at 12 year olds.
          Straight puff piece.

          I read it earlier this morning and my jaw was on the floor.
          I thought it appt to inject into here.

          Strange indeed !

  4. To know what we are up against of the “well-being” and to suffer the “kindness” dream.

    The inequality of Marxism (Jordan Peterson & Bret Weinstein)
    https://youtu.be/LEGJYd_zjLI
    10 mins 38 seconds : • Mar 22, 2021

    Marxism is a game that has major flaws, and so the rules that seem easy to put in place for some, actually makes it unplayable.

    “Inequality is the evidence of InJustice” is the current socialist story but aiming for that brings about UnJust outcomes.

    “All you have to bring to the world is what is unequal about you.”
    “If all are equal, but then there will be no trade.,,,, ….. so no one benefits”.

    I can not paraphrase so many of the good points these 2 bring up and do them Justice. 🙂
    Socialism is nice dream land of “imagine” & unicorn glitter, but it just can not be so.

    So the socialists need to make many more rules, laws, regulations to try and get the system to work, so it then degenerates into authoritarianism, which leads on to many unintended short falls & sufferings, creating more frustrations that unleashes authoritarianism, that lead to atrocities. …. … and insanity.

        It would be a safe bet that there are more radicalized left in nz then alt right. Dont see alt right chaining themselves to train tracks, trees, oil rigs, blocking streets and protesting. Extinction rebellion and the likes are only 1 nutcase/ lone wolf away from being a terrorist organization.

    “Flush with cash”  hmmm the writer fucked that up, the term should be “flush with credit” or “flush with debt”.  To be flush with cash would mean they had a good surplus and they are nowhere near that just deficit deficit deficit.

    I challenge anyone be it an individual, business or large corporate entity to go to a bank and secure a large loan with books this good!!!

    Govt borrowing should be held to the same standards and scrutiny as the citizens, seemingly endless cash splashes only have 1 general outcome and it aint good.

    • To carry on from the link above.
      Do i need to lower my iq and perhaps be retarded to understand “success” of this govt?

      Can someone please explain how its a great success that the govt books are 4 bill better off yet we are over 100billion in debt?

      Lets scale this down to a poor south auckland family for comparison…
      Hey hemi bro congratulations your debt is only $10,300 you thought it was going to be $10,700 and wow look at your excellent budgeting, for the next 12 years your income is $800 and your outgoings are $1000 wow youre like a god with those budgeting skills. Oooo and to top it off youre gunna borrow even more money you cant pay back and within 3 years your debt will be over $20k pat yourself on the back bro good work.

      How the fuck are the dole dependant poverty stricken families ever going to learn when the fucking sheeple leaders have set the most appalling standards for financial constraint/management?

      Put these fuckers in jail its criminal what theyre doing to our country

        • As an individual taking a lifetime cautious approach to debt and managing it, I am not OK with the level of debt generated by trivia. For example, placing the supposed “homeless” in motels and cranking through a horrendous amount of “accommodation supplement, with eye watering debt levels being generated, is not responsible government management at all in my observation.

          How the “homeless numbers have ballooned is not readily understood, apart from the immigration flood, perhaps tsunami is a better word, and the bad behaviour from the accommodated has left a disgraceful legacy of debt and inner city crime that soothing political words will not reduce or correct.

          Record my dissatisfaction with the Ministers handling of debt. I do not have confidence he understands the task. Not sure the PM connects the dots either.

  6. The media used this bastard to leverage up into Asian racism with white Supremacist links when he attacked that Asian woman.

    …. [Brandon] Elliot was living in a hotel nearby that serves as a homeless shelter, police said.
    Elliot was convicted of stabbing his mother to death in the Bronx in 2002, when he was 19, online court records show.
    He was released from prison in 2019 and is on lifetime parole.

    “For the life of me, I don’t understand why we are releasing or pushing people out of prison – not to give them second chances, but to put them into homeless facilities or shelters, or in this case a hotel – and expect good outcomes,”
    Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said at a news conference Wednesday. “We need real opportunities. We need real safety nets.”…..

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/03/31/nyc-attack-asian-woman-suspect-charged-hate-crime/4817796001/

    Here in New Zealand, watch out who will be released and who will be blamed for the consequences to enhance their divide & rule, identity power & control agenda.
    The with the created fears, use those frustrations to further their “well-being” agenda to “re-imagine” the “kindness” authoritarianism.

    All a part of terrorizing us, one way or the other, to grant more control, in the name of security, but loss of our liberty.
    So the “kindness” laws can control us even more, and are even more UnJust.

    Last night Bruce Russell was talkback host from midnight.
    Have to say it was all on with callers furious about TV One and Three and the moorification of everything.
    It was a pleasure to hear the anger and I was surprised that Bruce allowed so much discussion on the topic.
    One guy alerted Bruce and listeners to the article on NZCPR pointing out the agenda of the elites that is pushing this whole movement.
    Certainly hope many will read it because it sums things up very well.

How can our Prime Minister remove the knighthood from Sir Ron Brierley, when labour run sex camps, sexual deviats run amok in her own office on the ninth floor, the leader of the house of parliament falsely accuses someone of rape in parliament grounds.

      How? Very easily, Brierley has served his purpose, his money’s not needed any more, so he can be dumped and disposed of, with the ‘Knighthood-removal’ being justified for some newly-invented ideological reason.

      The ‘Left’ will always do this to their own.

  11. Thanks to Curious & Alice, yesterday, and worth re-posting a bit of the essence here.
    With just some excerpts, so it may bring on further thoughts on this issue.
    — – – – – – – – – – – – —-

    By Sue Grey:-
    An open letter to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern ….
    etc.. etc…

    1) …. provisional consent to the sale or supply or use of a new medicine where he is of the opinion that it is desirable that the medicine be sold, supplied, or used on a restricted basis for the treatment of a limited number of patients.”.

    This provisional consent is subject to 58 conditions …..

    2) …. Medsafe’s Medicines Assessment Advisory Committee on 2 February 2021 states that approval would be sought for provisional consent for Comirnaty as a “prescription only” medicine.
    Curiously the “prescription only” restriction is omitted from the subsequent gazette notice. ….

    3) …. Minister of Finance approved an ad hoc indemnity for the supplier (Pfizer), under the Public Finance Act, in September 2020 (indicating a lack of confidence by Pfizer in the safety of its own product), to induce Pfizer to supply to New Zealand. …
    …. Pfizer Vaccine is not FDA approved. It has only Emergency Use Authorisation in the USA. ….

    4) …. “safe” or “effective,” at least not in the sense commonly understood by the public. To the public “safe and effective” means it will not cause any significant short or long-term harm to anyone who receives it, and it will prevent infection, symptoms and transmission. …

    …. “we don’t yet know if it will stop you from catching and passing on the virus.”
    The claim “when we roll up our sleeves we are helping to protect all of us” creates the inference that the Pfizer vaccine will prevent the transmission of COVID-19 from one person to another.

    There is no evidence to support this claim.
    Even Pfizer itself does not claim that the vaccine prevents the transmission from one person to another.

    5) … principle of “informed consent” is fundamental.
    This requires information about risks, benefits and uncertainties as well as alternatives, and also that decisions are freely made, without duress. …

    6) … no evidence this vaccine prevents infection or transmission.
    Despite this, some employers are threatening employees with dismissal or reduced hours if they do not receive this experimental vaccine. ….

    7) …. some employers threatening staff with dismissal or reduced hours if they do not accept the Pfizer vaccine.
    There will inevitably be health and safety claims against employers who required or encouraged employees to accept this experimental vaccine if they suffer vaccine injury. ….

    8) …. reliance on misleading and unjustified assurances that the vaccine is approved by Medsafe and is safe and effective.
    Another example of this is the threat to the integrity of our bloodbank.
    This website at http://www.nzblood.co.nz states that no stand-down is required for the Pfizer BioNTec vaccine as it is “approved by Medsafe”. In fact it has only provisional consent for treatment of a limited number of patients. ….

    9) … serious breaches of the Medicines Act, Fair Trading Act, the NZ Bill of Rights Act and public law principles of decision making.
    There are also apparent breaches of the fiduciary duties owed by our elected representatives to the public of New Zealand.
    The cumulative effect of the many breaches significantly reduces the level of protection for patients ….

    10) …. threat to the rule of law, fundamental human rights of New Zealanders, public health and wellbeing and trust in government.
    There is also potentially very significant economic risk, especially if any of the warnings of international experts about this experimental vaccine ….

    11) …. an immediate end to the current misleading advertisements and corrective advertising to address misleading and deceptive claims that have already been made, and to facilitate fully informed consent ….

    12) …. acknowledge receipt [government has acknowledge they received] and confirm your intentions. …

    13) …. by 5 pm Tuesday 5th April, my clients have instructed me to file urgent proceedings ….

  13. German Experts Say Under 60s Should Not Get Second AstraZeneca Vaccine

    Earlier in the week, Germany said only people aged 60 and over should be administered the AstraZeneca vaccine due to the rare but severe occurrence of thromboembolic side effects. It said it would make a separate recommendation later on younger people who had already received a first shot.

      Their trials of fresh new guinea pigs, would not even be a trial, no previous medical history, no blood types, only maybe age and gender.

    Ukraine warned of a series of Russian violations of the ceasefire, including two incidents of mortar fire and large-caliber machine gun fire that led to the death of the four Ukrainian soldiers last Friday.
    On Tuesday, Ukraine accused Russia of violating the ceasefire seven times, prompting the country’s parliament to call for an increase in political and economic pressure on Moscow.

    Is it just a routine Russian army spring manoeuvres with a few fly overs?
    So it is noted that the army training manoeuvres that were deployed have not gone home after said dates of practice.
    Now much more deployment, airforce, tank trains, etc.. seem to be mounting up, so will there be a little more annexation?
    How big will that bite be?
    Social media like Tweets, TikTok, seem to be showing some build up of military.
    Is it just a testing tease by Putin?

    Note also the Ukraine is not part of NATO, but just a “regional security partner”.

    What would Biden do about anything from the behind the wood house, or now the basement, anyway?
    Will this draw out what policies Biden’s administration may have in mind, to gauge what support the USA has for the Ukraine?

    • Interesting as in Trump’s presidential time in 2020, the ok had been given to the Ukraine to use anti tank missiles for defensive purposes.

      “US officials tell CNN that there are no no [sic] geographic restrictions on where Ukraine can deploy the US-supplied Javelin anti-tank missiles as part of the terms of the agreement under which the US-made Javelins where [sic] provided to Ukraine as long as the weapons are used ‘defensively,’”
      https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/34638/ukraine-cleared-to-move-javelin-missiles-to-front-lines-to-blow-up-russian-tanks-defensively

      So it would seem the Ukraine could be a bit prickly on tanks, going by that first video 2 mins 30 secs.
      Interesting numbers of tanks, and just how many javelins?
      So will Biden be speeding out stocks of military javelins etc., to the Ukraine?

      I wonder what else is happening elsewhere,
      North Korea firing another missile?
      China sealing a deal with Iran?
      Chinese manouvres around Taiwan.
      Mexican border?
      Peace deal in Afghanistan?
      Whoops many troops guarding Capitol Hill.

      The idea of joining the military and trusting the President as Commander in Chief, will not have much appeal now.

    • Seems like a bit of shooting the breeze, but if any opportunity opens up, Putin will be in like Flynn.

      … U.S. defense chief …. Austin said during the call that Washington would “not leave Ukraine alone in the event of escalating Russian aggression,” …

      ….. “The Russian Federation moves its armed forces within its territory at its discretion,” spokesman Dmitry Peskov …. …. did not directly confirm a troop buildup on the Ukrainian border.
      He added that “it should not worry anyone and does not pose a threat to anyone.” …

      https://www.voanews.com/europe/ukraine-russia-massing-troops-border-us-warns-moscow

      Some part of the bottom line would be just how many Javelin missiles have the Ukraine got?
      Compared to how tanks the Russians are moving around. 🙂

      In March 2018, Trump approved the $47 million sale of 210 Javelin anti-tank missiles and 37 launchers to Ukraine.
      https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/javelin-missiles-ukraine/story?id=65855233

      How fast can Biden restock the Ukraine?
      So far the Russians have over 481 tanks in the area, but there will also be artillery, plus other tricks of the trade.

    • Religious holidays and traditions forced upon the masses.

      Its time we abandon this crap, its just another day and if ppl want a break then take it off and if not then work it. Get rid of public holidays along with time and a half day in lieu crap and just have extra annual leave.
      Its bullshit to be forced to close your business or pay penalty wage rates to open on set days of the year, even as an employee i hated being dictated when i took days off lije public holidays.
      When i was an employer if my wife and i didnt put our workers off and cover them ourselves (which would leave us understaffed) we made a loss every public holiday and due to the nature of the job (dairy farming/contract milking) we didnt have the option of simply shutting up for the day/weekend as its a 24/7 365 operation.

        Umm, there is a ‘problem’ with your proposal as in case you hadn’t heard, there are apparently moves afoot to have ADDITIONAL ‘religious’ holidays – events such as Eid (Muslim) and Diwali (Hindu) while if Matariki was ‘removed’ the carefully choreographed uproar would be appalling…

    FDA Whistleblower Claims the FDA is Not Properly Inspecting Plants where Vaccines are Manufactured, Mainly Merck Who Will Begin Producing COVID Experimental Vaccines

    While the FDA inspector raised flags about the agency’s handling of violations at several plants, Special Counsel Henry Kerner told the White House he was “most concerned” about the Merck inspection and agency follow-up. The Merck plant is slated to help produce Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine, though that work has not begun yet.

    The whistleblower alleged that employees at Merck’s plant were moving between cleanrooms and uncontrolled areas without properly ungowning, and that a biohazard bin contained employee uniforms soiled with blood, urine and feces. Employees were soiling their uniforms rather than taking restroom breaks, the whistleblower claimed, citing a confidential informant, because staffers would have otherwise needed to remove sterile gowning and leave manufacturing areas.

    Arthur Jensen:-You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale! And I won’t have it! Is that clear?!
    You think you’ve merely stopped a business deal? That is not the case.
    The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity! It is ecological balance!
    You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations, there are no peoples, there are no Russians, there are no Arabs, there are no third worlds, there is no West!
    There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variate, multi-national dominion of dollars.
    Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet.
    That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today!
    And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature!
    AND YOU WILL ATONE!
    Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale?
    You get up on your little twenty-one inch screen and howl about America and democracy.
    There is no America. There is no democracy.
    There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon.
    Those are the nations of the world today.
    What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state? Karl Marx?
    They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, minimax solutions, and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments, just like we do.
    We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale.
    The world is a college of corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable by-laws of business.
    The world is a business, Mr. Beale. It has been since man crawled out of the slime.
    And our children will live, Mr. Beale, to see that perfect world in which there’s no war or famine, oppression or brutality.
    One vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock.
    All necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused.
    And I have chosen you, Mr. Beale, to preach this evangel.
    Howard Beale: Why me?
    Arthur Jensen: Because you’re on television, dummy. Sixty million people watch you every night of the week, Monday through Friday.
    Howard Beale: I have seen the face of God.
    Arthur Jensen: You just might be right, Mr. Beale.

    It snowed last night…
    8:00 am: I made a snowman.
    8:10 – A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn’t make a snow woman.
    8:15 – So, I made a snow woman.
    8:17 – My feminist neighbor complained about the snow woman’s voluptuous chest saying it objectified snow women everywhere.
    8:20 – The gay couple living nearby threw a hissy fit and moaned it could have been two snow men instead.
    8:22 – The transgender man..women…person asked why I didn’t just make one snow person with detachable parts.
    8:25 – The vegans at the end of the lane complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.
    8:28 – I was being called a racist because the snow couple is white.
    8:31 – The middle eastern gent across the road demanded the snow woman be covered up .
    8:40 – The Police arrived saying someone had been offended.
    8:42 – The feminist neighbor complained again that the broomstick of the snow woman needed to be removed because it depicted women in a domestic role.
    8:43 – The council equality officer arrived and threatened me with eviction.
    8:45 – TV news crew from CBC showed up. I was asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I replied “Snowballs” and am now called a sexist.
    9:00 – I was on the News as a suspected terrorist, racist, homophobe sensibility offender, bent on stirring up trouble during difficult weather.
    9:10 – I was asked if I have any accomplices. My children were taken by social services.
    9:29 – Far left protesters offended by everything marched down the street demanding for me to be arrested.
    By noon it all melted

    There is no moral to this story. It is what we have become, all because of snowflakes.

    I’m So Fluid Now’: Demi Lovato Says She’s ‘Pansexual,’ Attracted To ‘Anything, Really’

    Singer Demi Lovato announced last weekend that she is “sexually fluid” and “pansexual,” meaning she is attracted to “anything, really.”

    Speaking to podcast host Joe Rogan on Saturday, the pop star explained she is “so fluid now” regarding her sexuality, according to Today.

    • It does not matter if she is a looker

      She is completely nuts.

      I lived in LA 20 years ago and was warned about ‘beautiful poison’
      Women who are great looking but off the reservation between the ears.
      South American in particular.

      So many of the males and females are abused that they end up nuts.
      This can be from people directly in the music industry or by parents.
      Over ambitious mothers who them selves did not succeed are often the perpetrators.
      This has been going on for 20 and a bit years now in a big way since the artists are ‘picked’ or chosen rather than push through with talent, as used to be the case.

      linked to that article is another from the crazy bitch:-

      “In a nine-page Instagram post, singer and songwriter Demi Lovato called gender reveal parties “transphobic” and claimed that “there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises.”

      Lovato claimed throughout the lengthy post that transgender activists dislike gender reveal parties because they divert from “reality.” To Lovato and other activists, reality is the concept that humans are born without any concept of gender. Lovato also claimed that basing sex off of genitalia is “inconsistent with science.”

      “inconsistent with science.”

      The bitch is off her rocker.

  23. A man lays sprawled across three entire seats at a posh theatre. Before the show has even started, an usher walks by and notices the man.

    “Sir, you’re only allowed one seat, can you please sit up?”

    The man groans, but remains seated. The Usher becoming impatient with the man, “sir, if you don’t get up, I will need to get my manager involved”

    Again the man just groans, which infuriates the Usher as he marches off to get the manager. In a few moments he returns with the manager and they both repeatedly attempt to move him, but with no success. It was at this point that the manager calls the police.

    Moments later, a police officer arrives and approaches the man, “alright buddy, what’s your name?”

    “Sam” the man moans.

    “And where ya from Sam?”

    With pain in his voice Sam replied, “the balcony”.

    “A man has been arrested after he allegedly shot dead a mother-of-six on a North Carolina Highway after her husband failed to see his car while merging lanes and accidentally cut him off.

    Dejywan Floyd, 29, of North Carolina, was arrested on Thursday and charged with first-degree murder of Pennsylvania mother Julie Eberly, 47, in March.
    Julie and her husband Ryan Eberly were driving down Interstate 95 in North Carolina on their way for a beach vacation. ”

  28. I did hear the part a day or so ago about USA taxes and corporate taxes going up.
    Which is a version of trying to control inflation, or is redistribute the money.
    Ok, more spending as promised, being the 2nd tranche.

    I was going to trim down this article, but I am not sure my comprehension is up to it, and nor did I want to prune off any one’s money.
    So 1 tranche, 2nd tranche, 3rd tranche? of health, drugs, woman, child, Then 4th tranche? seems to be a climate change. Seems like more trillions being created from the Modern Monetary Theory.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday that President Biden would soon be pushing for another large spending package to stimulate other areas of the economy left reeling from the COVID pandemic but left untouched by the recent $1.9 trillion package he signed into law.

    “When the president advocated for the American Rescue Plan, he talked about this being two stages: rescue then recovery,” Psaki told Fox News Sunday. “What the American people will hear from him this week, is part of his plan, the first step of his plan toward recovery which will include an investment in infrastructure.”

    Psaki said that the president would have more to say about the topic in April, indicating that Biden wanted to target health care and child care since the number of women fleeing the workforce was “a crisis right now.”

    Psaki stressed that this massive spending bill would be separate from the large infrastructure package the president will introduce on Wednesday that could call for up to $3 trillion in new spending for infrastructure, climate change, and drug prices.
