I doubt we will ever see the like of her again. Communistic bitch.

  2. FBI Tells Americans to Report ‘Family Members and Peers’ in Tweet, Gets Blowback

    FBI is receiving criticism for a tweet it posted on July 11 that suggests Americans should monitor “family members and peers” for signs of “mobilization to violence” and report “suspicious behaviors” in an effort to prevent extremist activities.

    “Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI,” the tweet read. It also included two photos of an individual highlighted in red accessing a computer.

    “In both Cuba & China, they also ask children to spy on their parents,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote.

    Rep. Dan Bishop (R-Texas) wrote: “These people protected Hillary, abused NSA surveillance databases against Americans, used known, unreliable DNC-funded propaganda to spy on Trump, perpetuated the Russia hoax, & lied to the FISC repeatedly. And now they tell you that you should spy on your family.”

    God they are awful.

    • The FBI is a criminal outfit.
      It was under Hoover and has not changed since.
      It should have been disbanded long ago.

      There are more than enough LEOs* n the US without this.
      Various Marshal services, Local police, Private incorporated police forces, State police, A militarised ATF, militarised DEA, Coast Guard (militarised), National Guard, US Customs (militarised) etc etc.

      The behaviour of that criminal James Comey should be reason enough but he is not alone.

      There is as much policing in US as there was in the German Democratic Republik aka East Germany.
      The people are not free and the FBI is not their friend.

  3. World’s New Energy Vehicles, Retired Batteries May Bring ‘Explosive Pollution’
    By Kate Jiang and Jennifer Zeng
    July 12, 2021 Updated: July 12, 2021

    As China’s new energy vehicle production grows rapidly, with half of global production now coming from China, the huge amount of retired batteries could bring “disastrous” environmental problems and “explosive pollution,” says state-owned media Xinhua.

    According to Xinhua, the cumulative retired batteries in China will had reached 200,000 tons (about 25 GWh) in 2020 and will grow to 780,000 tons (about 116 GWh) by 2025.

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/with-china-producing-half-the-worlds-new-energy-vehicles-retired-batteries-may-bring-explosive-pollution_3897010.html?utm_source=morningbriefnoe&utm_medium=email2&utm_campaign=mb-2021-07-13&mktids=e7fe56dde3740be57857227e4102013f&est=cHqBs6xapTTZ%2BNoXzfrNXjaIdVXTz3Pdp7rm9EaN47JO3xHrSDotq0lIGqLjUvg%3D

    Professor Wu Feng at Beijing Institute of Technology told Chinese media, “A 20-gram cell phone battery can pollute three standard swimming pools of water, and if abandoned on the land, it can pollute 1 square kilometer of land for about 50 years.”

    Compared to cell phone batteries, the pollution caused by the batteries of large new energy vehicles is more serious.

  4. Typical bullshit from a lefty fuckwit who has never ever bothered to work nor own and run a business.

    The Finance Minister says work is under way to reduce the country’s reliance on lockdowns and MIQ, but businesses should look to upskill their existing workforce rather than rely on overseas workers.

    Addressing the Transtasman Business Circle in Auckland today, Grant Robertson said that in the next few weeks the Government would reveal its road map for easing border restrictions.

    Fresh from a post-Budget tour of the country, Robertson said it was time for an immigration reset.

    “This is not about cutting a ribbon at the airport one day and everyone coming in, but it is about saying how do we use our vaccination process to enable us to start to reduce some of that down in a safe way.”

    • Imo theyre shitting pants about housing and this is their last resort… completely throttle migrant labour. It still wont fix it tho and it will take the better part of a decade with next to zero immigration to fix as long as nothing goes wrong.
      What the clowns dont realise is no one will have money to build new houses if they all go broke from no migrant workers, anyone that wants a job could find a job at the moment unless theyre extremely skill specific in what they do.

      The consequences of this govts retarded plan will be still high house prices and severe shortage and lots of broken crippled businesses.

      We should be using leftard tactics against them and screaming racist policy by halting diversity flowing into the country.

  5. Auckland family furious at police response after house looted five times in three weeks

    Police were unable to enter the house due to it being labelled a health and safety hazard after the fire.

    A neighbour of the Pukekohe family advised them that the police had left the premises “when the offenders were still in there”.

  6. Labour Party maths:

    James Oliver Finn Beaufort is unsure about his sexuality. 50% of the time, he is turned on by women. The rest of the time, he is turned on by mannequins in shop windows, vacuum cleaners, donkeys, pygmy goats & fish. Unfortunately, his wife only allows him to spend 2 nights out of the month with his vacuum.

    When will he run for parliament?

  7. A hunter goes into the woods to hunt a bear.
    He carries his trusty 22-gauge rifle with him.
    After a while, he spots a very large bear, takes aim, and fires.
    When the smoke clears, the bear is gone.

    A moment later, the bear taps the hunter on the shoulder and says, “No one shoots at me and gets away with it. You have two choices: I can rip your throat out and eat you, or you can drop your trousers, bend over, and I’ll [insert appropriate colloquialism for sodomy here].”

    The hunter decides that anything is better than death, so he drops his trousers and bends over; and the bear does what he said he would do.
    After the bear has left, the hunter pulls up his trousers and staggers back into town.
    He’s pretty mad.
    He buys a much larger gun and returns to the forest.
    He sees the same bear, aims, and fires.
    When the smoke clears, the bear is gone.
    A moment later the bear taps the hunter on the shoulder and says, “You know what to do.”

    Afterward, the hunter pulls up his trousers, crawls back into town, and buys a bazooka.
    Now he’s really mad.
    He returns to the forest, sees the bear, aims, and fires.
    The force of the bazooka blast knocks him flat on his back.
    When the smoke clears, the bear is standing over him and says, “You’re not doing this for the hunting, are you?”

  8. It’s long overdue for Venezuela and Cuba to execute their dictators and release the people from Socialism/Communism/Totalitarianism etc. It’s never peaceful getting rid of the filth, but maybe it will educate a few as to the evils of what is being advanced here. However I doubt NZ will stand with the moves for peace, prosperity and freedom and will condemn instead the killing of their comrades and the tragic loss of another of their deadly failed social experiments.

    • The US Government has assassinated more country leaders than all the other assassins put together.

      They made multiple attempts on Fidel Castro and failed more than 30 times.
      Personally I do not approve of the fuck-knuckle sociopaths and psychos at NSA/CIA performing these assassinations.
      Nobody elected them international judge, jury and executioner.

      In fact they even dethroned the last legitimate President of their own country.

    New Zealanders feel “shut down” and are accused of being a racist or a ‘Karen’ if they say something, Judith Collins says as she celebrates National’s new ‘Demand the Debate’ campaign.

    The opposition party on Sunday launched the campaign, which it says comes in response to policy announcements by the Government which it never campaigned on, such as the electric car rebate scheme. It wants the country to have a conversation about these issues, saying Labour’s “parliamentary majority is not a mandate for Labour to promote their ideological wish list”.

    The controversial He Puapua document is the first issue National wants a national discussion around. Commissioned in 2019, it sets out ideas on how to respond to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which the former National Government signed up to in 2010.

    “islam is right about woman” seems to become even more correct 🙂
    What price is woman-hood?

    “Black Lives Matter”, particularly in fiery protests.
    “All Lives Matter”, supposedly inclusive diversity, but just not a far enough reach.
    “It is ok to be white” now classed as a macro aggression.

  11. Fred and Mary got married.
    But they can’t afford a honeymoon, so they go back to Fred’s parent’s home for their first night together. In the morning, Johnny, Fred’s little brother, gets up and has his breakfast.
    As he is going out of the door to go to school, he asks his mom if Fred and Mary are up yet.
    She replies, “No”.
    Johnny asks, “Do you know what I think?”
    His mom replies, “I don’t want to hear what you think! Just go to school.”
    Johnny comes home for lunch and asks his mom, “Are Fred and Mary up yet?”
    She replies, “No.”
    Johnny says, “Do you know what I think?”
    His mom replies, “Never mind what you think! Eat your lunch and go back to school.”
    After school, Johnny comes home and asks again, “Are Fred and Mary up yet?”
    His mom says “No.”
    He asks, “Do you know what I think?”
    His mom replies, “Ok, ok, tell me what you think!!!”
    He says: “Last night Fred came to my room for the Vaseline and I think I gave him my airplane glue.”

  12. More poor English writing at the Herald.
    They don’t know the difference between “percent” and “percentage points”.

    “ASB is the first of the major banks to increase its mortgage and term deposit rates. The bank has lifted its fixed one-year rate by 0.36 per cent, up from 2.19 per cent to 2.55 per cent per annum.”

    The interest rate increase (one-year) from 2.19% to 2.55% is NOT 0.36 percent but is actually 16%. This means that you will be paying 16% more in interest payments on your one-year mortgage; not 0.36% more.

    She says there’s a choice between “a path of isolationism and nationalism, or we take the view that concerted collective action is the necessary response”.

    “Now is the time to turn our individual action into collective momentum.

    “The post-Covid world will be a new era, our goal is to make it a better era.”

    Ardern said the “natural place to start is Covid and the natural response is cooperation”.

    She said it was critical for collective health and wellbeing that there was a new pandemic treaty, an improvement of global health surveillance and a strengthening of the World Health Organization.

    It was a “new frontier” role that New Zealand would play, alongside global partners.

  14. I believe that a trans-woman is a man who acts out his image of what it is to be female. He wants to be female, but can only ever try to be what he thinks a female is.

    He can try to physically appear and to act “female,” but is he a woman?
    Does “not acting masculine” render you feminine?

    Since the suicide rate for trans people is significantly higher than in the general population, surely the education system would try to discourage it, “for the sake of a healthy childhood” just as they have done for smoking and drugs.

    Smoking shortens lifespans. Let’s discourage smoking through educational programs in schools.
    vs.
    The __________ lifestyle shortens lifespans. Let’s encourage ________ through educational programs in schools.

    Where is the logical consistency?

    Police in some areas had told local “Howl of a Protest” organisers they would not assist with traffic management as they “don’t want to take sides”. The cops were quick to support the mongrel mob funeral with traffic management in Gisborne giving the bikers right-of-way over other road users.

  17. The greater the degree of freedom, the greater the risk* in life.

    * Risk: the possibility of something turning out better OR worse than expected. People generally misunderstand risk and assign it a negative connotation, but this is not true. Hence the expression: “the greater the risk, the greater the reward”. (And the greater the possibility of failure.)

    Personal responsibility is a strategy to mitigate this increased level of risk associated with a higher degree of freedom. For people who lack personal responsibility, freedom is something to be feared. Hence their desire for greater levels of safety, certainty and security.

    I suspect that a lot of people fear having more freedom.

    • An interesting article that many here in “Aotearoa” have supported through the decades. 🙁
      The South African version of the He Puapua Report?

      Prince Machela from The Sowetan summed up the situation:
      “We must all thank Zuma for revealing our true African character; that the idea of rule of law is not part of who we are, and that constitutionalism is a concept far ahead of us as a people.
      Now that we have reclaimed our place as another African country, we must reflect on and come to terms with our real character, and imagine what our future portends”.

      “In a typical African country, ordinary people don’t expect much of politicians, because people get tired of repeated empty promises”.

      “In a typical African country, people have no illusions about the unity of morality and governance.
      People know that those who have power, have it for themselves and their friends and families.”

      Machela continued: “This country will not look like Denmark.
      It might look like Nigeria, where anti-corruption crusaders are an oddity.
      Being an African country, ours will not look like Germany.
      SA might look like Kenya, where tribalism drives politics.
      People must not entertain the illusion that a day is coming when SA will look like the USA.
      Our future is more on the side of Zimbabwe, where one ruler is more powerful than the rest of the population.
      Even if Julius Malema were to become president, it would still be the same.”

      Recently, a new legislative proposal to ban especially white South Africans from getting gun licences for the purpose of self defence, will include restrictions on hunters and sport shooters, reported by Business Insider South Africa.

      The draft law summary published by the Civilian Secretariat for Police Service (CSP) revealed that the ANC wanted to ensure that “no firearm licenses may be issued for self-defence purposes”.

    The Official Cash Rate is unchanged at 0.25 percent, the Reserve Bank confirms.

    In a monetary policy review on Wednesday, the central bank confirmed from July 23, it will stop buying bonds under the Large Scale Asset Purchase (LSAP) programme, introduced in March 2020.

    Effectively injecting cash into the economy to help reduce business and household borrowing costs, the programme has been nicknamed ‘money printing’.

    The Official Cash Rate is still at a record low 0.25 percent. But the Reserve Bank acknowledges the economy continues to perform better than expected coming through COVID-19.

    http://lucindariley.co.uk/myths-and-legends/

    Greek Mythology
    The Pleiades were seven sisters: Maia, Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno, Taygete, Electra, and Merope. Their parents were Atlas, a Titan commanded by the god Zeus to hold up the earth, and Pleione, the mythical protectress of sailors.

    After a chance meeting with the hunter Orion, the Pleiades and their mother became the objects of his pursuit. To protect them from Orion’s relentless amorous advances, Zeus changed them into a flock of doves which he then set in the heavens. Zeus was also rumoured to have fathered children with three of the sisters.

    The Seven Sisters are also known as the ‘Water Girls’ or the ‘Ice Maidens’, due to their association with water, be it seas, rivers, rain, hail, snow, ice or frost. The Greek legends often refer to the sisters as ‘Oceanids’. Some sources claim that the name ‘Pleiades’ originates from the ancient Greek word ‘plein’, meaning ‘to sail’.

    Maia – is the eldest sister and known for her outstanding beauty as well as her solitary life. The story goes that despite her beauty, she was a shy, waiflike woman who preferred her own company and lived alone in the caves. The name Maia means ‘mother’ in Latin and in other translations, Maia also means ‘nurse’ or ‘Great One’. Maia was seen by the Romans as their Spring Goddess which is why our fifth month is called ‘May’. At one time, her star shone brighter than any of the others. However, the next sister’s star, Alcyone, now shines brighter – which some say symbolises sibling rivalry between the two sisters in the past.

    Alcyone (Ally) – in Greek mythology, Alcyone, the second sister, was known as the leader. During the Halcyon days – when the world was filled with joy, prosperity and tranquillity – she watched over the Mediterranean Sea, making it calm and safe for sailors. The son of a morning star, Ceyx, the King of Thessaly, and Alcyone were married and devoted to each other, until the day they deceived Zeus and Hera by pretending to be them. In a rage, Zeus waited for the lovers to separate before launching a thunderstorm over the seas, causing Ceyx’s boat to capsize and him to drown.

    Merope (The Lost Sister) – Merope is more commonly accepted as the ‘lost Pleiad’ because hers was the last star to be mapped by astronomers and is the faintest star in the cluster, not visible to the naked eye. Some legends suggest that she became lost because she hid her face in shame at marrying a mortal, King Sisyphus. Others say that Merope hid her face out of shame because her husband was a criminal, whose punishment was to roll a heavy stone up a hill to the edge of heaven though it always rolled back down. There are similarities here to Merope’s father, Atlas, who kept the weight of the world on his shoulders.

    Asterope (Star) – the Greek name of Asterope translates to ‘Star’ and she is traditionally portrayed as one of the weaker sisters, perhaps because this star is one of the two that shines less brightly than the others. She was the mother of Oinomaos by Ares, the god of war. Some versions of the myth claim that Oinomaos was in fact her husband, not her son, and that after having four children together, he later became King of Pisa.

    Celaeno (Ce-Ce) – Celaeno is commonly translated as meaning ‘melon’ or ‘swarthy’. Celaeno, like Asterope, shines less brightly than the others, supposedly because she was once struck by lightning by Theon the Younger. However she had many children including sons Lycus (wolf) and Chimaereus (part lion, dragon and goat) by the Titan Prometheus, and sons Lycus and Nycteus by Poseidon, the god of the sea.

    Taygete (Tiggy) – in the myths, Taygete, like Maia, valued her independence and lived alone in the mountains. Zeus also had his eyes set on Taygete and tried to seduce her. Before he could reach her, she ran into the arms of Artemis, who turned Taygete into a doe so that she could escape the clutches of Zeus. Hercules also tried to woo her.

    Electra – known as the third brightest star Electra bore four children, one of which was Dardanus, who later became the founder of the ancient city of Troy. Some sources claim that Electra is the ‘lost Pleiad’ after she vanished following the fall of Troy and Dardanus’ death.

    • That is really interesting, it’s good to hear the original story without any Maorified hogwash for a change. This is the kind of thing that should be taught in our schools, but unfortunately Greek mythology and anything that doesn’t agree with the newspeak Labour vision has probably been banned already.

      • I’ve been reading the excellent series of novels by Lucinda Riley of ‘The Seven Sisters’. Lucinda Riley writes the search of each sister for their (Greek myth) origin after the death of their father.

        Maia D’Apliese and her five sisters gather together at their childhood home, “Atlantis”—a fabulous, secluded castle situated on the shores of Lake Geneva—having been told that their beloved father, who adopted them all as babies, has died. Each of them is handed a tantalizing clue to her true heritage—a clue which takes Maia across the world to a crumbling mansion in Rio d …more

  24. Grant Robertson’s answer to the housing crisis, is to be seen to be doing something by pissing around with the demand-side. Consequences are higher rents, and those at the bottom of the pile are displaced. Kindness, my arse.
    When you have more people than houses, you need more houses. End.Of. Juggling people around doesn’t change the problem. New home owners displacing tenants, doesn’t solve the problem. What a bunch of pricks this govt are.

    • Hmmm worked at time of posting, same thing happened last week. Ill repost tommorow if its working again.

      Was 2 extra deaths and 14 serious adverse reactions, what worries me are that these early reports are immediate reactions and nothing to do with any long term effects. Wonder how many of the serious reaction group will be alive in 1,2,5,10 years? Same goes for anyone thats got the experimental jab, keep an eye on excess deaths in the next few years.

    • It’s not “2 more deaths from the vax” although I agree, that is a quite a good way to play on the way they attributed deaths with Covid-19 to Covid-19. Get them with their own game 🙂

      Therefore, part of our review process includes comparing natural death rates to observed death rates following vaccination, to determine if there are any specific trends or patterns that might indicate a vaccine safety concern. There are currently no indications to suggest that the vaccine caused the deaths. To date, the observed number of deaths reported after vaccination is actually less than the expected number of deaths.

      That’s quite detailed. I mean, if I had a headache after being vaccinated would I bother to report it? Probably not. If the injection site felt painful – well, somebody stuck a needle in there. It’s like getting blood taken. A lot of the AERS events on that list seem like normal symptoms from any medication.

      • A Canadian doctor Jessica Rose did an analysis of Vaers data and statistically proved that the deaths and adverse reactions were due to the vax. The reason was that if it was background noise the results would be evenly spread over time, however they were clustered around the vax day. Statistically impossible if it wasn’t the vax. (There is a video of this floating around somewhere). Even Peteusi- Harris (or however you spell her name) apparently has admitted that myocarditis rates are 300 odd percent above normal background rate. Though says this isn’t a problem as most cases were mild. Mild myocarditis yeah right!

        • Thanks Curious, I had a look – I can find a couple of dubious sites linking to a video with some slides in it, but can’t find detailed stats somewhere. Do you know if Dr Rose actually published anything on it that is readable? (I like the real data, not an interpretive video)

          Always keen to expand knowledge, providing it’s real and not a random claim made on the internet.

    • Fiji.
      This is now law.

      Employers and employees need to be vaccinated based on the dates in the Health and Safety at Work Regulation or there can be closure of business and dismissal of workers.

      From the 1st of August this year or after that date, any employer or employee must not enter the workplace unless the employer or employee has received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine according to the Health and Safety at Work (General Workplace Conditions) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 gazetted and signed off by the Minister for Employment, Parveen Bala.
      If a worker has not received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on or before 15th August 2021; or the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before 1st November 2021, this can constitute a basis for dismissal of the worker.
      The regulation also states that on or after 1st November 2021, an employer or employee must not enter the workplace unless the employer or employee has received the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

        They can get fucked completely if they try that shit on in nz, its obvious it has nothing to do with health otherwise the best thing a govt could do for its populations health would be sevrely limit salt sugar and processed shit, ban smoking and alcohol… all those things kill many many times more then covid ever could.

        when they start picking up other starins and start dropping dead? It will happen. Look at Israel, the UK. So many fully vaccinated are now Delta positive… and about 50% of the dead were fully vaccinated.

      If prices were to fall by 50% to take the mean price of a house back to where it was only a few years ago, then my daughter would be able to secure her own place and be able to move out of my basement.

        • While i do agree with you in a sense kea you have to realise that many non investor types will get the same if not higher level of hurt.
          A bigger investor (likely your “slumlord”) could just sell up and still come out OK but the smaller mum and dad types with 2 or 3 houses and struggling owner occupiers will get wiped out and lose everything.
          I bet more good hardworking people get slammed then the rich folk, i wouldnt want to be in the group of homeowners that purchased in the last year or 2 theyll be the ones most at risk…. good way for banks to claw back all that kiwisaver $$$$$ they lost to 1st home deposits ay.

      Does he mean that mortgage rates could double? (That wouldn’t be hard, as they are historically low right now.)

    • He’s right. Pump price for diesel July 2020 = $1.30/l. Yesterday $1.52. Local sandwich bar put up their prices 15% on Monday & watch for supermarket price rises on any goods that have been on special. This is their way of increasing prices without people noticing it happening.

          The best price for diesel I’ve found in the Far North is Caltex Waitangi. If you get a chance fill up there & let us know what it costs. Warning…..Kaitaia is the worst. I’m uncertain whether it’s because of freight or if they factor in the costs of drive offs.

      • Farking fuel price!! I filled my big tanks last year at a lil over 90c per litre for diesel now its pushing 1.40 and i just drained the last drop yesterday so gunna have to weep when i fill the bastards again.

        Mind you i bulk purchased cos i knew it was about to shoot up but couple that with every other everyday item rising in costs and it starts to hurt.
        Food prices are the ones i rekon have gone up the most and will have the biggest impact on families, can walk or public transport if fuel price gets horrific but ya cant eat a bus if youre hungry

      • I’ve experienced times of unchecked inflation & accept that that it can work for & against you. On one hand it erodes your debts but the resultant inflationary driven interest rates can cancel out any benefits very quickly.

        From memory the purchase of our first home 51 years ago involved a 1st mortgage at 6.5% & the second at an eyewatering 23%.

  25. Border workers fined

    The Ministry of Health was issuing 16 $300 infringement notices to border workers who had not complied with testing orders, Hipkins said.
    He expected there would be more of them to come, Hipkins said.
    Hipkins said he did not expect them to be employed by the Government, so they were likely not MIQ workers.
    Hipkins announced that all border workers who need to be regularly tested will, from mid-August, be able to have saliva PCR tests instead of the more invasive nasopharyngeal

  26. Tauranga company fined $245,000 after employee breaks leg on international ship outside NZ

    A Tauranga-based biosecurity company has been fined $245,000 after an employee working on an internationally flagged ship outside New Zealand waters was badly injured.

    The employee suffered significant injuries, including a severely broken leg, after falling 2m off a log stack and it took nine hours for crew members to notice he was missing.

    Working an a log ship at sea. Ignoring sensible rules but what was worse was that no one knew where he was for 9 hours.
    Probably didn’t even care.

    Chinese spy ship returns to waters off Queensland ahead of Defence’s largest war-fighting exercise

    The Australian military is closely tracking a high-tech Chinese surveillance ship making its way towards Queensland ahead of large-scale military exercises which begin this week.
    Defence sources have told the ABC the auxiliary general intelligence (AGI) vessel Tianwangxing (which translates as “Uranus”) is scheduled to arrive on Friday.

    According to the Hard2Reach website a pilot for the programme will be led by the Chaindogs – a group of people who are Mongrel Mob affiliated

    It’s been criticised relentlessly by the National Party as giving money straight to the Mongrel Mob.

    The government defended its action. A leading official was blunt.

    The great mass of Americans do not drink liquor. There are two fringes of society who are hunting for “booze.” They are the so-called upper crust and the down-and-out in the slums. They are dying off fast from poison “hooch.” If America can be made sober and temperate in 50 years a good job will have been done.

    • The movers & shakers behind American prohibition were women’s groups aided & abetted by Christian control freaks to whom the deaths of drinkers would not have mattered an iota. From https://www.nationalgeographic.co.uk/history-and-civilisation/2020/01/raise-glass-its-100th-anniversary-prohibition

      ….” popular evangelist Billy Sunday (a former baseball player) said: “Tonight, one minute after midnight, a new nation will be born … An era of clear ideas and good manners begins. The slums will soon be a thing of the past. Prisons and reformatories will be emptied; we will transform them into attics and factories. Again, all men will walk straight, all women will smile, all children will laugh. The gates of hell have closed forever.”……

      The NZ feminists of early last century were equally deranged. Prohibition in NZ was only avoided by returned soldiers from WW1 voting against it. Masterton went dry but the surrounding townships didn’t. The King Country around Taumarunui remained dry until 1958 though the law didn’t make much difference to those in the know.

      The self appointed ones who know better than us & who would control our lives have shifted their focus but they are no less mad.
