Good luck with that shit here on ysb, you wanker!

    • I’m hearing interesting comments from some of my so called left leaning friends.

      The gloss is coming off the mad queen as they are waking up to the fact she is a show pony with no substance. It’s all about me followed by a serious look.

      Nany state, Housing Health and welfare of children are just several concerns. Many promises but no results.

        I wouldn’t read too much into just yet but an interesting observation.

  1. What a surprise – NOT! Ditching saturated fats is bad for your health

    Can we ever believe anything that scientists tell us? We’ve had 20 years of lies from climate alarmists and it seems we’ve had even longer to listen to the drivel of nutritionists and heart doctors telling us to completely cut out saturated fats from our diets.

    Well, stick a big, pink, Ken Dodd tickling stick up my bum if now we haven’t now got researchers at the University of Copenhagen heavily criticising the World Health Organisation for causing nutritional problems for millions upon millions by their doctrine of making saturated fats verboten. I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time before we find out that fluoride in the water has zero impact on dental health and that importing the dregs of the third world to western countries re-introduces diseases like syphilis and consumption into populations that previously never saw them.

    Seriously though. The science profession need to take a good hard look at themselves. They get stuff wrong far more than they get it right and I for one think a healthy sceptical attitude to MSM-pushed research is the only policy to take.

    Right! I’m off to get half a kilo of bacon and some lard for fried bread.

    • They could care less about the health problems they create or even how many people have to die for their climate religion as long as their agenda is pushed out & the trough remains full we will have these wankers telling us how to live our lives
      I know it’s early but im putting DP up for phrase of the day ” Well, stick a big, pink, Ken Dodd tickling stick up my bum” YSB folks and their generous offers really do touch my heart

      • I believe that the researchers correctly identified that cholesterol clogged arteries and could damage the heart thereby. That bit isn’t controversial.

        However, when asked what caused the cholesterol the researchers simply pulled an answer out of their arses. Instead of stating “We don’t know” they guessed “Saturated fats”. And that act of arrogance has been with us ever since.

      • Have been a butter eater all my life and never had any intention of changing, a little bit of fat never did anyone any harm. Marg is one molecule away from plastic so I have read on numerous occasions, and agree phrase of the day is superb has to get phrase of the week I’d have thought.

        • That’s true about Marg. I witnessed a strange sight at the supermarket yesterday. They were removing some Marg lines because they weren’t selling. Many people are reverting back to good old butter. Although, sadly I spied a few people looking at the price of butter, which is expensive, and opting for trans fat laden Margarine.

            It’s called personal choice.

            My fridge contains a butter-tasting used-engine-oil based product for sandwiches and real butter for cooking, toast etc.

            Each to their own eh!

            • My point was, a got the impression these shoppers would have chosen butter if they had the finances. Yes, it does boil down to personal choice- money or no money.

              However, what about the money we all pay down the line when these people get cardiovascular disease,eh? I’m already paying plenty to Cindy and her cohorts. Anymore taxing and I may need a ”give a little page.”

    • Always was a crock of shit. Nothing wrong with a good feed of meat or a pie. Problem was made up and driven by the margarine industry. Last time I looked butter had reclaimed its volume in the supermarkets in the USA.
      One of the deceits that went with the margarine narrative was to convince supermarket buyers in NZ to put marg. in the fridges displacing products that did need the fridge.
      Buyers generally are a low educated bunch of bullies.

      Marg is not a natural food and neither are the palm oils that get used in mixtures.
      Soon someone is going to prove that these plant oils are the cause of so much bowel cancer in Kiwi’s.

    • Mama Bear made us a sticky, Chinese style pork belly on rice a few nights ago. It’s salty, sticky, spicy and with those lovely golden fatty pork flavours all running through it. The sauce soaks through the rice and you get that unctuous flavour with every bite. A sprinkle of freshly chopped chilli and that was lunch; now I’m feeling very lazy.

  3. It’s finally July 4th in Yank Town. I’ve heard there was a general boycott in the media (excepting Fox) and having checked Get Stuffed there is an absence in NZ. I have seen part of the parade life-streamed. Anyway:

    In full executive producer mode, President Trump will put on the “show of a lifetime” for the hundreds of thousands of revelers who are flocking to the National Mall to witness the “Salute to America” –Trump’s Fourth of July spectacle replete with displays of the United States’ military might, a demonstration by the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels flight squadron and, of course, a healthy dose of controversy.
    The “Salute to America” will be capped off by a speech from Trump in front of the Lincoln Memorial, where the president will be flanked by two Bradley fighting vehicles with two 60-ton Army Abrams battle tanks being positioned on or near the National Mall.

    “People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World. Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd,” Trump said in two tweets Thursday morning.

  4. It seems that what Labour promised the DHB’s hasn’t even been addressed in the first eighteen months of being the Government and like most things from the Health Minister it’s easier to blame.
    https://i.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/opinion/113984983/capital-charge-makes-it-hard-for-dhbs-to-do-their-job
    Annette King promised this would happen before the last Election but it seems David Clark is another Minister that likes to promise its Gunna happen rather than do what was promised. This is another of the frauds Labour committed in their blatant lies before the last Election.

  5. Labour, kicking the poor since its inception:

    People queue from 2am outside Work and Income for help

    Families are being forced to endure inhumane conditions while queuing for emergency grants to feed and clothe their families, beneficiary advocates say.

    “I need to buy long pants, jumpers, jerseys and that, and then I need to get food, because I stay in a three bedroom house – I pay $610 a week.”

    Toni had travelled from Pukekohe and arrived about 4.30am – she was there to get food and winter essentials for her whānau.

    “I’m working about 20 hours a week on top of the benefit and it’s just not enough.

    “That comes a lot down to the rent market, I’m paying $500 a week for a three-bedroom, which is just one unit with three tiny bedrooms that come off that,” she said.

    “It’s ridiculous – the price for rent out here.”

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12246774

    This is the type of thing I learned growing up poor: Labour has a vested interest in keeping the poor poor. They’re full of empty platitudes. It’s what Labour does best and something they continue to do in earnest.

    Who would have believed that when the CoL got generous with Landlord’s money, they’d up the rent to compensate? Labour needs to make sure its voter-base remains intact.

    • Labours voters will all be living in cars soon there won’t be any flats left as landlords escape the ever increasing draconian laws screwing them over, im usually quite an empathetic guy but the more Jacinda & her cohorts destroy our Kiwi way of life the less sympathy i seem to have almost to the point of fk em they voted for this shower of shit suffer the consequences, unfortunately there are also good Kiwi battlers out there doing the hard yards as well that dont or wont be lining up for free shit at 2AM

      • True, but this is an easily visible Labour policy that is screwing over their constituents. It’s rare to find something so blatantly obvious. Unfortunately, many people who are poor are lacking in the intelligence department and are quite willing to be fucked over so long as their masters say nice things to them. They never seem to realise that Labour has entrapped them.

        As you say, they’ve chosen their plight. I have no sympathy for most of the poor in this country as they continue to believe the lies from the Left.

        I was brought up poor. I regularly saw the Left and their agents deliberately try and prevent the poor from climbing out of their situation. It took me years to throw off the shackles. On the other hand, it is much easier to keep taking the handouts and never getting ahead.

    • Liebor have never looked after the poor, its a myth that they seem to have the ability to continue on. The poor do so much better under a National government, always have, but the poor are so incensed that people who work hard have more than they do that they can’t bring themselves to vote for them. Shows their mentality.

    • Yes high rents are a problem for everyone, it just takes so much of your income.
      They key is to drop the accomodation supplement.
      And build lots of low cost flats, and home units, and apartment buildings – quickly.
      Sort of like kiwi build.
      But run by someone with some brains.
      it comes down to supply and demand.

      • Can’t take away the accommodation supplement. Banks would go bust.
        There are 3 things which stuff house prices. The high cost of sections bought about by high costs of development, Covenants that prevent the building of basic housing such as we had in the 70’s. Have some of those houses and while they need an upgrade from time to time are fine for many people. Lastly the need to lowe the expectations of the first home buyers. All those woke people who need 4 bedrooms, office, double garage for the new cars and two bathrooms including carpet heaters and twin loo’s, all close to the CBD with the access to the latest ratepayer-funded like to haves.

      Get a proper job, stop relying on the taxpayer and you may just find life improves a bit. Not qualified? Take advantage of New Zealand’s’ free, distance-based education system. There are some focussed specifically on Maori education as well which will support you from a cultural perspective. Or enrol in an apprenticeship where you work while learning. There are many opportunities to improve your life.

  6. It’s been going on since I’ve been alive. The rent-a-mob has long fascinated me. Whereas most people cannot afford the time to idly protest, these people are forever at the same protests time and time again. Where do they get their money from? Who funds their red hammer and sickle flags? How do they get all their plastic paraphernalia? Etc.

      I suspect the apartment block has not been maintained and is up for some big bills in the near future (for example, it is likely it won’t meet fire regulation standards). This is the usual problem and one of the main reasons I wouldn’t touch an apartment with a ten foot pole.

    • “There are also operating expenses of $4417 and rates of $1575 for the apartment.”
      Plus GST, means paying $400 a week just to live in your own apartment….

      Article also mentions the ground rent is reviewed every 7 years (and very close to another review in the not too distant future)

      That block/group of apartment buildings (scene one – three) also have weathertightness issues

      Linked article also shows this madness –
      “Earlier this year, an apartment in nearby Scene Three sold for $65,500 after its owners bought it for $280,000 in 2014 – meaning they lost $214,500.

      They weren’t the first to make a loss on it, either – the previous owners bought it for $490,000 in 2006.”

      And as with alot of the property in that area (including spark arena for example) are all owned by the local natives on leasehold to the building owners/occupiers…. so classed as a charitable organization and not required to pay any income tax on ridiculous annual income

    • I won’t read the crap as it will misleading.
      That area is owned by the Bros- Ngatai Whatua $$$$ – so there will be regular ground rent rises plus body corp in thousands pa. and with your name on the title you can’t just walk away.

      Those commitments will be required to be paid monthly forever and ever…
      Leasehold is a bitch.

      It is land that goes up in value not the shoddily built apartments.
      There may be positive cash flow but what is the DCF over 15 or 20 years?

      DCF is Discounted Cash Flow

    • Labour won’t cut immigration because that’s what’s keeping the housing bubble inflated.
      You bring in 70,000 people per year, you’re always going to have a housing shortage, housing shortage equals high demand which equals high housing prices.

      Labour’s more interested in retaining power, career politicians unsurprisingly put their careers first instead of what’s good for the country.

    Specifically to:

    All eyes are now on the government to see if it will come to the rescue of homeowners who have bought a lemon.

    A fortnight ago, EQC Minister Megan Woods said the government was awaiting the outcome of the Xu case before deciding what help if any it could offer people in this position.

    Why are the government even considering offering my tax money to people who have made a commercial decision?

    These people have taken a risk, purchased a cheap house thinking they could shaft the insurance company into help them make a financial gain and are now finding out they can’t.

    Tough fucking shit!

    Woods and her thieving scum mates have given away enough of my money already!

    “FELIX Ngole was expelled from his social work course at Sheffield University for posts on Facebook expressing Biblical views on same-sex marriage and sexual ethics. Three Court of Appeal judges ruled yesterday that the university was wrong to expel him for expressing his views.”

      • It is worth reading the full article and comments to consider this point, and others. The forum, incidentally, is run by conservative (small c) women, but is a very wide-ranging, largely un-censored but intelligently contributed, civilised discussion of a huge variety of topics to do with mainly Britain and the EU. A ‘liberal’ description that clearly does not apply to Sheffield University. I believe the academic who pushed for his removal is a known homosexual activist. I don’t know the sexual composition of the lower court that legalised his removal, but I am guessing the Appeal Judges were not homosexual activists. Call me cynical if you like.

    “Counties Manukau Health is running a pilot which offers incentives to Māori parents who decide to vaccinate their children.
    From July 1, whānau were being offered $20 petrol or grocery vouchers and nappies to take part, Integrated Child, Youth and Maternity at Counties Manukau DHB general manager Carmel Ellis told Stuff.
    Loretta Roberts, national manager for the Immunisation Advisory Centre said access was one of the most common barriers for immunisation.
    If a voucher would help families to get their child to the provider for immunisation then this would be a supportive approach.”.

    What a pile of racist shit.
    Vouchers only for Maoris because they have “access” problems.
    So if you are a good parent and vaccinate your kids on time you can go fuck yourself but if you are a ignorant lazy parent who can’t be bothered and you happen to be Maori we will reward you with this voucher.
    The free bludges on offer in this country are truly becoming ridiculous.

      • While I dislike government compulsion, I have often wondered whether a paternity test should be compulsory on all newborns. This is mostly so unfaithful women would get unmasked and the cuckold could refuse to fund children not his. However, in cases like this it would also mean fathers (and mothers) could not hide their paternity when applying for the DPB.

        It would be an imperfect system since no one knows what the percentage of chimerism exists in the population, especially in the male population. This is where the surviving ‘twin’ has absorbed the dead fraternal twin into the reproductive DNA therefore the offspring does not have the actual DNA of the biological parent. It’s very occasionally discovered with mothers. I’m unaware of a single father being discovered with chimerism but it is logical that it would exist in the male population.

    Here is my city in the Bay of Plenty it is hard to get jobs.
    But there are hundreds, no thousands of immigrants here.
    When one goes to a mall, they are all packed, the supermarkets are busy.
    My question is “where does everyone work”?
    Are they all kiwifruit workers (seasonal)
    or home care workers
    Or nurses?
    or retail workers (only part time and disappearing)
    or Trademe sellers
    Or on a benefit
    Self employed

    I appreciate that some are very determined to bring more thought to these debates, and issues.

I know reddit is a left-leaning site (if they were the tower of Pisa they would have fallen over), but it has a unique feature of allowing the crowdsourcing of news and memes, which are then presented in an easily digestible way.

It used to annoy me when you would see them being wasted, but I did think it was a good service to provide.

        The flavoured ones were the most popular, with the girls.

        I got these hard case ones with a silhouette of a rooster or a donkey or a cat on the packets. Clever marketing.

    • Mama Bear was consulting with a lady running a local cleaning service. The lady was paying … oh I think it was around $22 to $25 per hour for a cleaning lady and that was a couple of years ago so was a reasonable wage at the time. They tried to work with the WINZ programmes to get people off a benefit and into work and I believe interviewed around twenty ladies. Something like that – more than a dozen anyway.

      One.

      Just one was actually interested and got a job. The rest were going through the motions and made it clear they’re just doing it so they could say they’d been on an interview, were rejected and go back to sitting on their benefit.

  23. Bloody hell. I watched a busker (I am being polite) haranguing a lady who told him to do something that he didn’t agree with. This was at the Dinsdale Countdown in Hamilton. He set himself up where cars had to stop to exit the car park, so got to hit everyone up. People would have stopped shopping there. The elderly should be allowed to go about their business unmolested.

  24. Don’t let a title trump the ongoing trauma of an atrocity
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/rugby/super-rugby/114024567/dont-let-a-title-trump-the-ongoing-trauma-of-an-atrocity
    “I’m sorry, but I have to say it. I don’t want the Crusaders to win the Super Rugby final on Saturday night.
    The main one being is that I think it would simply be an invitation to forgetfulness, an excuse, somehow, to entrench a divisive brand at the centre of an ongoing conversation”.

    Another tragic bit of soul searching by some pathetic speciman of a man who hopes the Crusaders don’t win the final because he is still in anguish over the name.
    FFS sake go and see a psychologist, start a support group or get Jacinda to give you a hug because you really need to let it go like other normal people have.

    • The article states that most syphilis is among the sodomites. ( Lovely word that – say it slowly and savour it… but I digress). Now HIV tends to be more common in people who also have other STDs, as its easier to get AIDS if you already have some other disease turning your genitals into raw, mucous -dripping contusions. Ergo, I wonder what’s hiding away behind the pus…

    • I don’t disagree, entirely, although there’s value in immigration when it’s people wanting to come to live your lifestyle and are capable of helping to create it, not impose their own. And I did enjoy the piece on No Punches Pulled about immigration, pulling the doctors and like out of Africa and bringing them to the Western world.

      But.

      Couldn’t you equally say “New Zealand is for Maori”? Well, probably not because New Zealand was conquered by Europeans a century and a bit ago. But is this invasion from Africa, etc. not exactly that – a war of conquest to take over other lands? And shouldn’t it be treated as such?

  25. Watching TV1 news and it reminded me to ask the question as to why their microphones have a bright red ”sock” on them. Why not a blue one? Or even a yellow one? Subliminal advertising, I think.

  26. Still something a bit funny on my Android phone with the site.

  27. The five month review, released to staff today and leaked to the Weekend Herald, pointed to significant costs in staffing, clinical supplies and outsourced elective surgical services.

    This was despite a $2.4 million project that clawed back $10m in outsourced surgeries from the $25m spent each year.

    It also showed:

    • A seriously eroded financial position over the past five years from a surplus of $3.8m in 2014 to a deficit of $66.6m in 2019;

    • Evidence that the DHB is not underfunded by the Ministry of Health per capita of population which has been blamed for the climbing deficit;

    • Poor investment decision-making and no cohesive strategic direction;

    • A major divide between clinicians and management causing tension;

    • No funding for the DHB’s number one priority to improve Māori health inequalities, with a staggering 30 per cent of Māori patients failing to show up for outpatient clinics;

    • A large increase in full-time staff, 1000 in one year, that was much higher than the national average;

    =====================
    Please note the second to last bit.
    Are we fed up with this brown clan not bothering?

    No trouble to find $12 mill to do up the local meeting houses though.

      • Yup, this was her FB response :”Hi there, I have been liaising with some teachers who have written to the attorney general for clarification regarding this. I have also checked in with an employment lawyer. S9 of the employment relations act appears to allow some differential treatment. The case would hang on whether the lump sum payment and the 3 month delay would be considered punitive. I will wait to see the response of the attorney general. Thanks Nikki ” and her e mail indicated that she and Nick Smith are looking into this.

  28. Just been reading Nature – Valentina Zharkova’s recently published paper. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-45584-3 Love this quote: However, during the next two grand solar minima, which are expected to occur in 2020–2055 (Modern grand solar minimum lasting for 3 solar cycles) and in 2370–2415 (future grand solar minimum lasting for 4 cycles) (see Fig. 3 in Zharkova et al.6) a decrease of the terrestrial temperature is expected to be similar to those during the Maunder Minimum and, definitely, substantially larger than natural temperature fluctuations shown in the Akasofu’s plot26,47.

    During the Maunder Minimum, Europe and North America went into a deep freeze: alpine glaciers extended over valley farmland; sea ice crept south from the Arctic; and the famous canals in the Netherlands froze regularly https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/7122/chilly-temperatures-during-the-maunder-minimum

    Yup, Jacinda is right we need to declare a Climate Emergency.

  29. And our domestic violence record is worse? Three sisters kill their father in Russia..
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=12247167

    Pressured by conservative family groups, President Vladimir Putin in 2017 signed a law decriminalizing some forms of domestic violence, which has no fixed definition in the Russian legislation. Police routinely turn a blind eye to cases of domestic abuse, while preventive measures, such as restraining orders, are either lacking or not in wide use.

  30. And that is what I think should have happened with Maori language, I do not understand why it didn’t go underground at worst, legally it was only ever not allowed to be spoken in school, no-one dictated its restriction in homes or Marae or anywhere else.
