  1. No self-control gives rise to new term ‘diabesity’.

    Diabesity: The ‘tidal wave’ of diabetes and obesity that could soon cost New Zealand $3.5b a year

    “If we don’t change our settings around the obesogenic environment about how overweight people are getting, overweight leads to obesity, this leads to more type 2 diabetes – it’s a very steady trajectory.”

    • Are we heading to a point, or have we gone past the point, where free health care is simply abused. Surely taking care of yourself, in the self interest of yourself, needs to be worth something to every individual.

      We have Emergency departments getting overwhelmed while if I go to the medical center I am registered with, I get an account with the expectation I will pay before leaving. Time in my view for the value of health and medical attention to be better recognised. Time for the sacrifice of taxpayers holding up the health system to be recognised.

      Means free health care is not being respected and the taxpayer holding the system up is just a number to attach a demand to.

      Those diabeties predictions are saying those that indulge excessively are going to be an unreasonable burden on the community if the expectation of free treatment remains. The “education plan” is not working. How about over indulgence has a price at the door to the clinic?

    • Imo the public health system shouldnt cover poor unhealthy lifestyle choices.
      People with Injury/ illness related to smoking, drugs, alcohol, obesity should have to pay for treatment themselves, when the state relieves those of the consequences of personal responsibility then the outcome is a large chunk of society will choose self destruct abd expect the rest to pickup the tab.

      Fuck the fat cunts, want kfc and lots of sugary shit everyday then die a young fat piece of shit. The world will be better off without them.

      • Like many a good proposal floated the devil would be in the detail. Given that BMI is nearly useless as a way of describing the actual physical condition of people on the outliers, who decides who is fat because of gluttony? You can easily get to a point where administration costs more than the care provided.

        This is the reason that health & benefits are universal.

        • This has come about as the direct result of the medical profession pushing a carb, grain based diet, with low fat.

          All carbs are sugar. That includes fruit and whole grains. The issue is not fried chicken, or beef patties.

          The ignorance around this topic is stunning. The rock solid proof clearly shows obesity has increased in lockstep with a reduction in fats and an increase in carbs.

          I have nothing but contempt for those promoting grains as healthy and essential. It has killed millions and made billions live diminished lives.

          You are better off eating lamb flaps and salad, than a bowl of cereal. The idea humans should live on grass seeds is lunacy.

          • I agree Kea. The example used in their article was a fatty who lined up on her desk every morning, biscuits, chips, chocolates and lollies and proceeded to demolish a packet of each. She would have been better off to instead have a steak or similar for breakfast.

            • A steak for breakfast is a fantastic idea. You feel so much better.

              The worst part of takeaways are the chips, buns and sweet drink. Yet vile scum will blame the slither of beef or a fragment of chicken.

              1. Try and find a fatty who doesn’t sip on sugary drinks all day.

              2. Look in a fatties supermarket trolly. See how much meat isn’t there among the carbs.

              3. See what fat subhuman slugs eat for breakfast.

              You’ll quickly observe a pattern.

      • Sorry IAASB but that is far too harsh. I was at a party recently full of fat people and quite a few of them had health problems (I overheard conversations about diabetes, strokes etc). At no time did I ever think that these people shouldn’t have free and ready access to healthcare. It’s just not on to deny healthcare to people who’s lifestyles you might judge to be suboptimal. Quite apart from that, how would you propose to enforce it? A sugar/fat/carbohydtrate/MSG tax and a points system for walking as measured by a chip inserted in your arm? Like a vaccine? OMG where’s this going? I’m gonna have a lie down. 🤣

        • EK i dislike public funded healthcare to start with, socialist systems like it just allow sponges to soak up $$$ to prolong their miserable lives or those near the end of tgeir lives. The worst is spending hundreds of thousands to buy someone 9 months or a year, let them die.
          I could accept a public healthcare system if it had say a lifetime cap on the amount one can claim, same with benefits etc cap that shit and stop dependance and bring back personal responsibility

          • We disagree on this. But it’s great debating with you and thanks for putting your case so succinctly in reply.

            I think universal healthcare (as well as education, the pension and some forms of welfare for the truly deserving) are the most valuable parts of a truly civilised society. But the problem is that overblown beaurocrcy and people abusing the system are both acting to destroy it, while ‘Education’ is becoming nothing more than a woke conditioning and social control system.

            Reform is desperately needed, sure. But not a total scrapping.

          • socialist systems like it just allow sponges to soak up $$$
            That is the intent, to overwhelm the social welfare, and probably more.
            Cloward Piven
            …. “would produce bureaucratic disruption in welfare agencies and fiscal disruption in local and state governments” that would: “…deepen existing divisions among elements in the big-city Democratic coalition: the remaining white middle class, the working-class ethnic groups and the growing minority poor.
            To avoid a further weakening of that historic coalition, a national Democratic administration would be constrained to advance a federal solution to poverty that would override local welfare failures, local class and racial conflicts and local revenue dilemmas.”[2]

            They further wrote:
            The ultimate objective of this strategy—to wipe out poverty by establishing a guaranteed annual income—will be questioned by some. Because the ideal of individual social and economic mobility has deep roots, even activists seem reluctant to call for national programs to eliminate poverty by the outright redistribution of income.[2] ….

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloward%E2%80%93Piven_strategy

            This form of strategy can be seen, a house for every one, a pet dog for every on welfare too. etc.. living wage, and the “Big Kumara” universal living benefit.
            This concept has been adapted, customized and advanced in different ways to so many different situations now.
            The open borders, for every one, to overwhelm, then with voting to get control of the “public purse”, as we can see already.

            This will be deep in our academia, and by now well placed in our bureaucracies, and technocrats.
            https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/10/nyregion/frances-fox-piven-democratic-socialism.html
            This article shows that in their opposite sides, they are the same side of the coin, as others may not be in full open support, but will use their customized “progressive” points.

            Also overwhelming our education system with “humanities, genderisms etc.” but not good work trades

Not his fault and I don’t have a problem with those who help themselves to keep themselves as healthy as possible under difficult conditions. Thank goodness for public funded healthcare!

    • I posted Tuckers video yesterday where he talks about the influence coke has on the incidence of diabeties and asks why no one has sued them yet. I concur with that.
      The biggest shareholder in coke is Berkshire Hathaway who, incidentally also own the railway that transports the oil from Canada to Texas.
      You will recall we had a page devoted to the woke coke but it seems that the “managers” of those companies can spend million and millions of political sponsorship rather than give that money back to the shareholders.

      Past time that lot were taken down.

      • I agree. Fuck the police.

        They are demonstrably corrupt and highly politicised. They have been implicit in hiding crimes of Party members, while grossly abusing their powers to persecute dissenting citizens.

        And no. The few good cops left do nothing to mitigate the overall abuses of power. The problem is down the road in Molesworth St.

        It is equally true to say most SS officers were decent people. Yet no one does. The “following orders” defence didn’t apply to the SS and should not apply to our current totalitarian socialist regime.

        So – fuck the police.

    • I expect the police will be given a stern talking to for hurting the poor chaps feelings. In some countries they would have shot the guy for attacking police with a bat, but here it is just legitimate self-expression to be talked through in a kind manner.

      Of course the situation would have been very different had the 17 year old had a firearms licence. Then the full weight of the law would fall on him.

    • From happychappy’s link:

      …..”and were speaking with the driver before he allegedly brought out the bat”……

      Given that there were two officers this presents as a case where two itty-bitty officers recruited for their diversity rather than the physique required to do a policeman’s job properly were easily overwhelmed.

      • Once they realise police can’t physically look after themselves, this type of attack will probably become a norm for gang prospects out to earn some “brownie” points.
        Now, I don’t like Asian ladyboys in a Mikey sort of way, but I don’t have anything against them. However when plod turns up to pull Saggy out of his burning car, I’d prefer some non-diverse muscles and attitude. When it gets to the stage that citizens feel they have be prepared to defend themselves because they can’t rely on plod turning up and acting, we’re going to get concealed weapons and things are going to get ugly.

    Tiger King star Joe Exotic and husband Dillon Passage to divorce after 3 years of marriage

    Tiger King stars Joseph “Joe Exotic” Maldonado-Passage and Dillon Passage have announced they are getting divorced.

    The eccentric reality TV star married Passage in 2017, just months before he was jailed for 22 years after being convicted of plotting to kill Big Cat Rescue rival Carole Baskin.

    On Friday, Passage, 25, announced that he and his husband will be seeking a divorce after three years of marriage.

    Taking to social media, Passage said the heartbreaking situation “isn’t fair to either of us”.

    “To answer the main question the public wants to know, yes, Joe and I are seeking a divorce,” Passage wrote on his Instagram.

    “This wasn’t an easy decision to make but Joe and I both understand that this situation isn’t fair to either of us. It’s something that neither of us were expecting but we are going to take it day by day.

  7. Donald Trump
    Trump Calls for Boycott of MLB, Coca-Cola, Delta Over Opposition to Georgia Election Reforms
    By Ivan Pentchoukov
    April 2, 2021 Updated: April 3, 2021

    Former President Donald Trump on April 2 urged people to boycott Major League Baseball (MLB), Coca-Cola, Delta, and other corporations which are openly opposing election reforms enacted by Republicans in Georgia.
    Georgia’s election reforms have become the target of left-wing criticism, including false claims by Biden about the law requiring the polls to close by 5 p.m. The bill actually expanded the voting hours to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

    Corporations including Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola joined the chorus, issuing statements from top executives criticizing the bill.

    Biden said on March 31 that he would support the MLB moving the All-star game from Atlanta in response to the election reform legislation.

  8. 6000% Increase in Reported Vaccine Deaths 1st Quarter 2021 Compared to 1st Quarter 2020

    These new products, which many doctors and scientists claim do not even meet the legal definition of a “vaccine,” are described by the manufacturers themselves as “operating systems” called the “software of life,” and prior to COVID they have never been approved to be used on human populations.
    There are literally thousands of doctors and scientists around the world who have spoken out against these experimental injections, some even calling them “biological weapons of mass destruction.”

    Do doctors have to have the covid-19 vaccine?
    BMJ 2021; 372 doi: (Published 29 March 2021)Cite this as: BMJ 2021;372:n810
    Rapid Response:
    Re: Do doctors have to have the covid-19 vaccine?

    Dear Editor
    I have had more vaccines in my life than most people and come from a place of significant personal and professional experience in relation to this pandemic, having managed a service during the first 2 waves and all the contingencies that go with that.
    Nevertheless, what I am currently struggling with is the failure to report the reality of the morbidity caused by our current vaccination program within the health service and staff population. The levels of sickness after vaccination is unprecedented and staff are getting very sick and some with neurological symptoms which is having a huge impact on the health service function. Even the young and healthy are off for days, some for weeks, and some requiring medical treatment. Whole teams are being taken out as they went to get vaccinated together.
    Mandatory vaccination in this instance is stupid, unethical and irresponsible when it comes to protecting our staff and public health. We are in the voluntary phase of vaccination, and encouraging staff to take an unlicensed product that is impacting on their immediate health, and I have direct experience of staff contracting Covid AFTER vaccination and probably transmitting it. In fact, it is clearly stated that these vaccine products do not offer immunity or stop transmission. In which case why are we doing it? There is no longitudinal safety data (a couple of months of trial data at best) available and these products are only under emergency licensing. What is to say that there are no longitudinal adverse effects that we may face that may put the entire health sector at risk?
    Flu is a massive annual killer, it inundates the health system, it kills young people, the old the comorbid, and yet people can chose whether or not they have that vaccine (which had been around for a long time). And you can list a whole number of other examples of vaccines that are not mandatory and yet they protect against diseases of higher consequence.
    Coercion and mandating medical treatments on our staff, of members of the public especially when treatments are still in the experimental phase, are firmly in the realms of a totalitarian Nazi dystopia and fall far outside of our ethical values as the guardians of health.
    I and my entire family have had COVID. This as well as most of my friends, relatives and colleagues. I have recently lost a relatively young family member with comorbidities to heart failure, resulting from the pneumonia caused by Covid. Despite this, I would never debase myself and agree, that we should abandon our liberal principles and the international stance on bodily sovereignty, free informed choice and human rights and support unprecedented coercion of professionals, patients and people to have experimental treatments with limited safety data. This and the policies that go with this are more of a danger to our society than anything else we have faced over the last year.
    What has happened to “my body my choice?” What has happened to scientific and open debate? If I don’t prescribe an antibiotic to a patient who doesn’t need it as they are healthy, am I anti-antibiotics? Or an antibiotic-denier? Is it not time that people truly thought about what is happening to us and where all of this is taking us?

      One would guess that New Zealand was lucky not to have got that vaccine then, and it was quietly shelved in Europe and the UK.

  12. Report: China Brags About Controlling Anti-Trump Election Groups & Has Ties to Fact-Checkers

    Brooks – who repeatedly refused to be interviewed by The National Pulse before pulling the TIP website down and ceasing operations before election day — had previously offered election assistance to Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, and specifically name-dropped now-Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan in her e-mail.

    Sullivan is listed as a fellow of Australia’s Lowy Institute for International Policy — named by the CCP as a “co-operator.”

    Additionally, the Berggruen Institute lists a bevy of Chinese government-run entities as partners. These include the Beijing Academy of Artificial Intelligence, China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence.

  13. Credit where it is due.
    After a series of lackluster recent years Lydia Ko just raced up the leaderboard at the ANA Golf Major this morning our time (Sunday Cali time)

    She ended up Second in the end after nothing outstanding earlier in the tourney.
    She got a 62 in the last round.
    70 69 71 62
    For non golfers that is damn fine.
    Eight birdies and an Eagle for 10 under. No bogeys .

    She won the ANA in 2016, the year in which she was last competitive.

  14. One Year After Trump Was Mocked for ‘Sunlight’ COVID Comments, Research Shows It’s 8x More Effective Than Previously Thought

    The joint university study noted something peculiar: “In the experiments, viruses in simulated saliva and exposed to UV-B lamps were inactivated more than eight times faster than would have been predicted by the theory.”

  15. AOC introduced a total of 21 bills … Her legislation received no action in committees, no floor votes, and none ever became law, according to the center, which takes its data from Congress.gov.
    “She introduced a lot of bills, but she was not successful at having them receive any sort of action in committee or beyond committee and if they can’t get through committee they cannot pass the House. It’s clear that she was trying to get her legislative agenda moving and engage with the lawmaking process. But she wasn’t as successful as some other members were — even among [other] freshmen — at getting people to pay attention to her legislation,” Alan Wiseman, a Vanderbilt political scientist and co-director of the center, told The [New York] Post.

    Out of 240 Democrats, she ranked 230. She was also the least effective of all New York Democrats.

  16. Hat tip to Maggie Pie,
    As she was turned back by the police when walking her dog in her quiet leafy streets of Remuera.

    ….. Police and forensic units are at a home in the Auckland suburb of Remuera after a person died. …
    ….. four police cars arrived at 9.30am …..
    … More officers arrived at the property close to 3.30pm and began knocking on doors of surrounding homes. ….

    • What we are going to need in the near future is an accurate & incorruptible source of information that gives actual figures representing deaths from Covid & deaths from the vaccine. We don’t need the info editorialised, we don’t need opinions from world renown health experts.

      We need the raw data to allow us to make our own minds up.

      And we’re not going to get it because our own elected officials & their administration are absolutely determined that we won’t!

        • Agreed. Yet even if she succeeds the information must be broadcast to the general public. In a normal functioning democracy this role would fall to the Fourth Estate.

          Regrettably they are now the bought & paid for minions of Labour & will not publish anything that may damage The Party in the eyes of the electorate. The media scum are no longer the eyes & ears of the nation. They are simply a propaganda agency.

          Basically…….we’re fucked.

      • Theres always reference material we can use to get a better understanding of how governments use kindness and transparency to quell vaccine hesitancy.

        The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male (informally referred to as the “Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment,” the “Tuskegee Syphilis Study,” the “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the African American Male,” the “U.S. Public Health Service Syphilis Study at Tuskegee,” or the “Tuskegee Experiment”) was an ethically unjustified study conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the United States Public Health Service (PHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of this study was to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis. Although the African-American men who participated in the study were told that they were receiving free health care from the federal government of the United States, they were not.

        The men were initially told that the “study” was only going to last six months, but it was extended to 40 years.

  17. As mentioned earlier about the Polish Church in Calgary
    https://ysb.co.nz/have-your-say-720/#comment-135481

    The police have made a counter answer.

    …. one uniformed member of the Calgary Police Service to assist our partner agencies. ….
    “we continue to strive for voluntary compliance with public health orders where that makes sense”

    https://twitter.com/CalgaryPolice/status/1378796097070452738?

    The comments below get into a debate just who the other uniforms members, though many dispute that there was only one policeman.

    So it will be up to the bureaucrats if they send off tickets/fines or if they intend to send summons and court appearances, as a part of their legal war-fare.
    Or would the City council over rule?

    • Stasi lying.

      https://www.rt.com/news/520091-canada-church-pastor-cops/

      clearly one uniform cop
      Two others possibly three that says Peace officer on the back
      That is doublespeak for ‘cop’

      the woman is public health inspector (front) environmental services (back of tunic)
      One person in jeans and leather jacket of no determined status but standard ‘mob’ uniform

      extract
      The conservative pastor is based in Calgary, Alberta, and is known locally for alms-giving work and fiery sermons against the Sharia law, abortions, gay rights and, lately, Covid-19 restrictions. He has repeatedly been fined by the authorities for organizing protests in breach of health regulations currently in place in the country, according to Canadian media. His views have made him a target for criticism from left-wing activists.

      He sounds all right to me
      Well right of me, to be fair.

      He could easily get a List place for Notional !!
      Maybe a bit righteous even for them though and he actually stands up for something
      So maybe not 🙂

      • …..” he actually stands up for something”……

        National won’t like it! Mind you, if the good pastor softens his attitude & His Holiness gives His approval at their next policy meeting it is possible that God’s little helpers may fall into line.

        Like the useless bastards do with every other contentious issue!

  18. Can anyone explain to me why councils need to own art galleries and artwork?
    All at the expense of ratepayers.

    Hamilton council has mothballed $3m Ralph Hotere mural for years because it’s too big

    A $3 million Ralph Hotere mural owned by Hamilton City Council has been in storage for more than three years because there is no public space big enough to hang it.

    Trust me its there. Scroll down. Oh and fletchers got another 40 million handout so they can charge all of us more.

    Major League Baseball had extended and expanded its contract with a Chinese telecommunications giant shortly before boycotting the state of Georgia over the league’s disagreement with the election reforms recently enacted by the Peach State’s democratically elected governor and legislature.
