  1. Good morning, nice to see some rain last night, I thought it might cool the weather down but not so far, just humid and sticky. VFF have a picnic in the park, Its at Claudlands, Hamilton at 4 this afternoon. If raining it will be postponed. Just wanted to let people know. There is also a farmers market that accepts anyone at all, jabbed or not and even Ken and Karens too but they won’t be there it will be unsafe for them. It is held at the corner of James and Peachgrove Road between 8am and 12. Great to see there are people supporting the unjabbed to go about life as it has come to be. Have a great day and please……Remember don’t open the door the virus is watching for opened doors so it can get the unjabbed and could come right in.

    • Went to the market this morning and there were more stalls there than last week I think this will catch on and grow fabulous garden to walk around as well. Got some gorgeous freshly dug potatoes can’t wait to eat them. There were a couple of lovely berry places too. It’s great no one wearing masks One could almost believe that life was back to normal.

  2. Usa the real inflation numbers, tucker carlson. https://youtu.be/oWMAOylxXpw
    At around 8.30 he hits the nail on the head with crazy housing inflation.

    Would be interesting to compare the same numbers here in nz compared to our govts sham 4.9%, i dont know if we would be at the 32% tucker claims the usa is at but i wouldnt be suprised at all if we are in the low 20%.

    • I think I read that auckland house prices went up 25% last month.

      I know that Winz is just paying what gets asked now as they have a huge housing problem.
      My friendly agent advised a couple of days ago the the market had gone soft and the mortgage brokers are saying (many of them), that it is almost impossible to get house finance currently. The new Resonsible lending rules have basically made the banks into cowards just like the doctors. Ripe for underground lenders to thrive.

      Removing cheques from the system, whilst inevitable, now brings in more cash as people avoid the banking system.

      Perfect storm for many people.
      Meanwhile we have record house consents. BUT be careful with that number because that is all house consents not just new ones.
      The GFC was a demand shock. So, recovery from it was, in basic terms about building demand back globally.

      Covid, as we are now realising, has not been about demand. The massive stimulus packages around the world have ensured demand as economies ‘re-opened’.

      What we’ve seen instead then is this ‘re-opening’ demand come smack, bang up against massive supply problems. Supply chains are something we are blissfully unaware of – till they break.

      This has opened the door for the spectacular re-emergence of inflation. From an economic perspective, global inflation is likely to be the legacy of Covid. And I for one am not convinced that either the supply chain problems, or the resulting inflation, are going to be tamed as easily as central banks and the like are still trying (increasingly unconvincingly) to convince themselves will be the case.

      The current talk is for New Zealand to see a peak annual inflation rate of around 6% as of the end of this year and then declining through next year. But everybody has been getting this wrong in the past 12 months. And they might get it wrong in the next 12 as well.

      f, particularly service businesses, don’t have a good summer, then things could slow up considerably. The labour market is tighter than a tight thing at the moment – but that could start to change quickly. Just imagine. Businesses with much lower revenues – but much higher costs. Not good. At all.

      This could all be significant for interest rates. I don’t see interest rates as being necessarily one-way traffic (IE up) over 2022 as is currently predicted by economists and the RBNZ. Not if we start to see heat rapidly coming out of the economy. I think a significant pause in interest rate hikes and maybe even some pullback is more than possible.

      On a very much related issue, I’m going to be also looking closely at availability of credit. We know that banks have been hit with everything in relation to home lending from LVRs to the prospect of debt-to-income controls. All these things will have made banks wary of lending. Then on top of that has come something that arguably has not been widely discussed enough – the new Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (CCCF Act) rules that came into effect on December 1, 2021.

      In essence these rules put much greater emphasis on banks and other lenders getting more detail from would be borrowers about why they need the loan, their income and their expenses. And the lender is required to make sure the would be borrower can afford what they are borrowing. And the lender has to keep detailed records of the inquiries they made – IE to be able to demonstrate they did make inquiries.

      This seems to now make banks and other financial providers the babysitters of those seeking loans. The banks effectively have to be able to prove that people will pay them back. That sounds tough.

      I really do wonder about the extent to which this is simply going to scare banks off lending. Anecdotally it is already happening. Will it be a short-run reaction to the new rules or more pervasive? Credit crunch, anybody? If people can’t borrow then life’s going to get pretty interesting. I would definitely say watch this space. And keep watching

      If we take February 2020 as the starting point in NZ for Covid (and it’s when we reported our first cases), well, since the pandemic began median houses prices had (according to REINZ figures) risen about 40% by October 2021, the latest figures available at time of writing. In good cold, hard, cash, the median in Auckland has increased $362,000 in that time (to $1.25 million), while for NZ, ex Auckland the rise has been $203,000 (to $753,000) and for NZ including Auckland it’s $255,000 (to $895,000).

      • “The GFC was a demand shock. So, recovery from it was, in basic terms about building demand back globally.”

        Which 100% proves my point that prices are not driven by a lack of housing. People didn’t suddenly have less need for a house after the GFC.

        What has driven prices up is an excess of dept. 40% of the USA’s money was magically created in the past 18 months, by a rooted economy.

        This sort of bullshit is what caused the GFC.

      • Viking, did you watch the link? This inflation us just “transitory”// they all parrot the same thing and im suprised cindy and robos mega intellect hasnt spurted those words yet.

        By saying “transitory” it makes it sound like its just very short term sortve like only while we transition out of covid but in reality it just means “not permanent” so that could be any legnth of time could be 6 months could be 6 years.

        Its gutting they dont report the REAL inflation figures and instead just crappy cpi.
        I was talking to my mate about this last night, what wages were when we first entered the workforce and how cheap everything was.
        Early 2000s my first full time job was 19k per year, then 21k 2004 i thought i was made on 30k per year then 33 then 35, 2008 was 65k bear in mind all of those jobs came with a house so zero rent and some jobs my power bill was paid for.
        On those lower paying years 19-30k i seemed to have all the money in the world to blow and stuff was cheap, 30bux a week groceries petrol under $1 diesel was 50-60cents my power bills were 30-40bux a month

        Fast forward to today… i earn several times my yearly income of back then yet feels like we’re just treading water, everything is so bloody expensive. Im thankful i purchased our property before things went mad as our mortage on our lifestyle block is about $150pw cheaper then renting a 3bdrm house in any of the nearby towns (fyi our house 4bdrm on 25acres).
        I honestly dont know how anyone can rent and get ahead these days and i guess thats what all the frustration is about.

    • They lurch from one fuck up to another.
      No wonder they raised the milk price.
      Going to force people to tip it down the drain.
      Will they pay?

      There can hardly be a justification for their actions considering a large part of their product is heat treated that will kill any virus.
      The of course their is their tanker drivers. Extreme shortage of truck drivers so next they won’t have anyone to pick up the milk.
      It just goes on and on.
      Will that include the contractor who drives the tractor that heads your maise or bales your hay.
      The words MINDLESS STUPIDITY seem to be appropriate.

      • Viking, theres already wokester farmers that wont let any unvaxxed contractors on the farm.
        Im an ag contractor and so far our clients have been fine but my mate who does balage has had to turn down jobs because he needed to be fully vaxxed to sit in his tractor alone baling down the back of the farm.
        Same with my mate that does gorse spraying, alone on a hill full of prickles but for some reason hes demanded to be vaxxed, its utter madness with zero logic involved.
        The alliance stock rep emailed a mates boss last week saying he wouldnt come on farm to look at stock if owner or staff werent fully vaxxed… anzco now have a new client, alliance got told to get fucked and thats a quite large station too with near on 1000 beefies per year and god knows how many sheep and deer

        Theres also now 2 farmers in the area tgat have gone the other way, fully banned any vaccinated contractors from the farm and supports all the unvaxxed tradies and contractors even if it costs him more in travel to get them there. Quite big farming operations as well both with large runoff blocks.

        • Can anyone confirm as true that bobby calves will not be collected next season and must be reared? I always thought that it was sad but farmers will have to take milk out of the vat to rear them or they will be knocked on the head, beefy rearers can only take so many too. Beef will come down in price?

          • Dunno about the bobby calf thing Rach, id say its just bullshit theres no kill space or grazing for current beef production so the wheels would fall off pretty quick if you added another million or so head to the equation.

            I give my neighbours and clients shit theyve all gone to sexed semen so 94% of ai calves are now heifers so very few bobbies and they rekon in 18months theyre gunna sell all the surplus heifers and make good money… problem is shitloads of farmers have the same idea, dairy growth has stagnated and slow decline from its peak and they wont be able to live export so theres going to be a glut of incalf dairy heifers on the horizon, no kill space to cull older cows to make room and no money in sending incalf heifers to the works (if you can get them in). Ill be sitting back with some popcorn and a big “i told ya so”

              • Sootz, theres already many farms that do so. My mate up the road 1300 cows and not 1 bobby calf every one of them gets shot same with 2 of our neighbours and 5 of the last 7 dairy farms i worked, 1 farm if it was near knock off time and a heifer was calving and the head was out it would be shot before it was born. Theres zero profit in bobby calves feeding them for 4-5 days to end up dead anyways.
                Gloriavale were onto it back in the day, they used to buy newborn calves from farmers. Turn up daily shoot/donk them all and take em away, farmer would still get paid 10bux a head for doing nothing. Dunno what they done with them but guessing skins and rendering them down?
                The last farm i worked on the owners had several farms side by side and the deadhole was on the boundary… 2200 cows in total and zero bobbies were kept, its a mindblowing sight to behold and add to that a 2-3% mortality rate for the milking herd. Ive never seen so many maggots in my life literally the entire hole is moving like some fucked up horror movie scene.

                Ive seen some horrific shit in my farming career some still haunts me, 2nd day on the job boss gave me a ballpein hammer and sent me out into a paddock of 120 cows that had just been induced, i was 14 then and still feel the guilt 20yrs later.

  3. An article on what is happening with the woke police in Britain. It appears that not only are they being beaten up but the standard of recruits is very low. In comparison a video was on somewhere last night of Western Australian police attacking and arresting several gang members using quite excessive force, video footage showed that all the trumped up charges of resisting arrest and starting it first did not add up, charges have been withdrawn and now the police are to be sued.
    As some have predicted here in New Zealand it is possible all will be on once the Maori gang led roadblocks start to take effect, I saw where police training recruits without the power of arrest would be “in attendance”, that is not going to work once the fists start flying. I guess at this stage our police are more British than Australian in attitude, the guitar playing fits in well with asking the British Extinction protesters if there is anything they need, and the soft action towards the rail protest here in Dunedin.
    The comments that Poto Williams is the worst ever Police Minister and that Andrew Coster is well removed from the regular policeman does not bode well for our future.

  7. Meanwhile, the Ōpōtiki District Council was backing calls from iwi leaders to try to block Aucklanders from travelling to the district.

    Now this could prove interesting because from my observations over a lot of years many of those that return are actually from that area.
    Its been common for many years for people to quit their rentals and return to that area for summer and come back to town after they have their summer break of 4-6 weeks.
    Even tenants go back.
    About 70% of registered Tuhoe (from what I remember of the stats), live outside of the area, many in Auckland including many of the well educated.
    What are they going to do. send them back to town.
    Now that will be funny to watch, especially if the returnees don’t which to be vaxxed, as many Maori find it an untenable choice.

    Pop corn days.

  8. Its all on without a doubt.

    An Auckland first-home buyer says her dream of moving into a new house now looks out of reach after her builder pointed to rising costs to unexpectedly jack up the building price by more than 25 per cent.

    It comes as a NZ Certified Builders Association board member says he believes costs and pressures on builders are the worst they’ve been in 40 years.

    Chancellor Construction managing director Wayne Zeng agreed, saying he was facing long delays getting building materials and other fast-rising costs.

    That had led him to ask buyers in the Cardinal West development in Massey, West Auckland, to pay more than originally agreed, arguing he will go broke if he doesn’t raise prices.

    But the buyer, who didn’t wish to be named, said she can’t afford the new $501,000 price for the build portion of her house and land package, after it rose from an initial $396,000 fixed charge.

    Banks won’t lend her any more as thy will invoke the RBNZ’s new rules.

  10. Viking@0752

    It’s not only Tuhoe; the ‘Don’t come back for Christmas ‘cos of the Virus’ message is circulating amongst many North Island Tribes / Iwi, the intention being to protect the vulnerable elderly from the virus’ effects, especially in the more-remote areas of the country, where medical facilities are not close-by.

    It’s a reasonable request of course, but is causing significant distress (and increasing resentment towards dl) to those who have traditionally returned over ‘Christmas for R&R and to re-connect with the Tribe.

    As Maori have long memories and are very innovative in taking utu, Cindy, in her light-weight, surface ignorance, fake ‘concern’ and stupidity, may well rue the day that she imposed the ‘traffic lights’ and other restrictions.

    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/12/theres_an_unspoken_reason_that_blacks_are_attacking_asian_people.html (Andrea Widburg)
    …..”But there’s another reason that few people like to talk about: Asians go from ghetto to suburbs in one generation and, often, from suburbs to chi-chi upper-class communities in just one or two generations. If you think about the fact that Asians came to America broke, speaking no English, and often facing substantial prejudice, their success puts the lie to Black claims that there’s no way Blacks can achieve success in a country as racist as America…….

    Sadly, rather than seeing Asian behavior as something to imitate to achieve Asian success rates, too many Blacks see Asians as a group that needs to be destroyed, perhaps because they put the lie to Black narratives about generational failure in America.”

  15. This article is behind NZH paywall this morning. Comments got closed after two; the Sagster’s offering never saw the light of day.
    For your viewing pleasure:

    “Heather du Plessis-Allan: Who calls the shots at northern checkpoints, iwi or police?

    The Government should never have tolerated iwi demands for checkpoints in Northland this summer. But it has. And so it’s created a lot of trouble for itself.

    No one actually seems to know what to expect on Wednesday when the border comes down and Aucklanders head north.

    What we do know is that there will be two checkpoints: one near Uretiti on SH1 and one near Maungaturoto on SH12. We know those checkpoints will be manned by both iwi members and police officers.

    But that’s where the certainty ends and the confusion starts.

    Police say they’re only doing spot checks. Not every car will be checked.

    Tai Tokerau Border Control disagrees. They say every car will be checked. They say police have agreed to allow this and will tolerate some queues as long as health and safety isn’t threatened.

    They also say the police will not be the ones calling the shots at the checkpoints. All decisions will be made in “partnership” with iwi. This – if true – means that even if officers believe a queue is growing too long and want to switch from checking every car to only spot-checking the occasional car, they will need iwi agreement.

    If this is how it plays out on Wednesday, commuting Aucklanders will be furious, not only at the inconvenience and congestion but also at being misled. Only three weeks ago, the Prime Minister assured Aucklanders they would not have to deal with a hard border and the checking of every car to get out of the city.

    But probably the most damaging aspect of this is the sense the Government has deliberately kept the truth from the public.

    While it kept assuring the public there would be no iwi-led checkpoints, the Government had actually amended legislation to allow iwi to man checkpoints. It turns out that three weeks ago Labour inserted a clause into the Covid-19 Health Response Act giving various groups including “a nominated representative of an iwi organisation” the power to “close roads and public places and stop vehicles”.

    There is a growing sense the Government caved to pressure from Northland iwi and then tried to hide that from the public. Despite numerous questions on the possibility of iwi checkpoints, no government minister or the PM ever volunteered that the law had been changed. Instead, they each ducked and dived and avoid saying anything definitive.

    It was only after new National Party leader Chris Luxon drew a line in the sand himself the truth emerged.

    The morning after becoming leader last week, Luxon appeared on the Mike Hosking Breakfast Show and labelled iwi checkpoints “nuts”.

    That afternoon – now clearly forced to take a position – Covid Response Minister Chris Hipkins finally also ruled out iwi checkpoints, saying “The only people who should be putting any roadblocks in place if they are justified by law are the New Zealand Police, so no there should not be any iwi roadblocks being set up.”

    But that wasn’t entirely true. Because by then, his government had amended the law and he knew that checkpoints would be set up for Northland iwi. He could argue that they won’t technically be iwi-led checkpoints, because as long as a police officer is present they can be called police checkpoints, but it’s semantics.

    What’s happening at Auckland’s northern border to appease iwi is clearly very different to what’s happening at Auckland’s southern border, where there are no plans to have iwi present and where there will only be spot checking of cars.

    This problem only threatens to grow now. Gisborne iwi have confirmed they also want to set up checkpoints. They wrote to authorities this week asking permission.

    The Northland checkpoints will tie up 300 officers over a month. The public will begrudge that use of police resources at a time when gun crime and gang violence is making the headlines, especially in Auckland.

    There’s a very good chance Labour will pay for this in the polls.

    It could’ve avoided this if it had just put its foot down.”

    Despite the strict vaccine measures recommended by the govt, many companies have recently switched to regular testing to avoid losing unvaccinated workers.

    “It’s already difficult to find staff, let alone putting in a vaccine mandate,” said the chief executive of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, Dan Kelly, adding that 20% of the pool of potential workers would be unavailable if mandates were to be strictly imposed.

      So some locals have to slot in an over 100 km round trip to a larger provincial centre.
      How much more is this happening?
      A small place, so it does not make the news, though if it was damaging to the government, nor would the media print it.

      Maybe North-land fuel stations could run out? and unable to cope with the influx of travelers?

    For what it’s worth, I don’t think you’re a sheep, I don’t think you’re asleep, I don’t blame you for being compliant… but I am sorry. I’m sorry that you’ve blindly put trust and faith in a government who have let you down time and time again. I’m sorry that you did exactly what you believed would be best and nothing has changed. I’m sorry that you did all of this selflessly because you wanted to keep others safe and you wanted your life back. I’m sorry that you were lied to.

    I don’t want their divisive techniques to work anymore. I’m asking you to stand with us and say NO to anymore rules, anymore lockdowns and anymore ridiculous mandates. This is not about saving lives, this is not about keeping people safe and it is not about a virus.

    If you have a ‘conspiracy theorist’ friend in your life who has been right multiple times in the last 21 months, I’m begging you, to please take a look at what is happening now and see that this isn’t going to get any better until we make it stop.

    So, to you, fellow human being – someone who is clearly so compassionate to put their life on hold for 21 months, please try and spread your compassion and empathy to us and realise that we are NOT the enemy.””

  18. Graham Adams: Jacinda Ardern and the Ghost of David Lange
    November 1, 2021

    The Prime Minister is increasingly looking like a political hostage as Nanaia Mahuta presses on with the Three Waters reforms. Graham Adams sees history rhyming as her powerful Maori caucus flexes its muscles.

    David Lange is one of the most tragic figures of our modern political history. Highly articulate and entertaining, he was ushered into power in a landslide in 1984 during an economic and financial crisis. Feted as the youngest Prime Minister of the 20th century, he dazzled the nation with his wit and intellect.

    By the time he resigned in 1989, however, he was seen as a weak and malleable leader who had backed policies he would later regret supporting.

      Biggest problem, 2 more years to run, and so many battles being waged on so many fronts, so that we now have a siege like mentality.

      Still knowing these things, expanding them, is a part of knowing your enemy, which is a part of overcoming & winning.

  20. Viking Chief Tore Hund and his successful resistance against Christian conversion

    Read Later

    Print

    When Christians made their theological push into Europe, suppressing native religions and supplanting them with a foreign God, some pagans resisted by secretly practicing their old religion, while others resisted by meeting force with force. One such case of forceful resistance was by Tore Hund or Thorir the Hound, a powerful Viking born around 990 AD, during the first incursions of Christianity into Norway.

    Today, many people around the world still resort to violence over religion, more than 1,000 years after Tore Hund killed King Olaf II or Saint Olaf, who reportedly made a deal to impose Christianity on Norway in exchange for the help of other European powers. Tore killed Olaf at the battle of Stiklestad. There, an army of farmers and laborers overwhelmed the king’s army

  21. Beshear described Friday night as “one of the toughest nights in Kentucky history,” adding that “some areas have been hit in ways that are hard to put into words.” Local authorities believe this weekend’s storms could end up being more devastating than the 1974 tornado outbreak that killed 71 people.

    Beshear declared a state of emergency overnight, calling in the National Guard to help deal with the aftermath, and also urged the federal government to declare a state of emergency. In Graves County, the hardest-hit area in the state, the tornado battered the local courthouse and nearby prison. The authorities have sent “two tractor-trailers filled with water” to secure the area’s drinking water supply.

  23. We watched a Netflix movie last night called “Dark Water” It was similar to the Brockovich situation but concerned DuPont and the chemicals involved in the production of Teflon. Waste gets into the water ways, farm animals affected etc. , workers on the production line have huge health issues etc.
    The similarities to what is happening now with Pfizer is amazing except Pfizer has taken it to a global level.
    The other point is the lawyer latched onto the issue in the late 90s and it has gone for 15-20 years. The Brockovich situation with the energy company started in the early 90s. You would think DuPont’s legal guys would have learnt a bit from it.

    If and preferably when DR Reiner Feullmich and his gang of lawyers get people into Court, I think we can expect the same arrogance on display.

  24. I say good on the person who made some cash by getting vaccinated multiple times. This whole thing has been a cluster from the start . How can you even take the so called vaccine seriously when you could rock up to a pop up shop in a mall , staffed with recently trained jabbers . You needed no ID just a name and a close date of birth to give to an untrained record taker.

      A true Ardernite believer, ready to party.

      “Those jabbers do not intend to inform, and only actively seek “consent” as they just seek the bounty.”

      “After all if 1 jab is called good, then officially 2 is even better, while now Ardern calls the 3rd is better still and needs for more too.
      To please his mistress, like toilet paper, you do not want to run out.”

    Auschwitz did not fall from the sky. It began with small forms of persecution of Jews. It happened, it means it can happen anywhere. That is why human rights and democratic constitutions must be defended. The eleventh commandment is important: Don’t be indifferent. Do not be indifferent when you see historical lies, do not be indifferent when any minority is discriminated, do not be indifferent when power violates a social contract.
    :::
    Never be a bystander whenever a minority is discriminated against.

    It gives me no pleasure in noting that every time someone uses a vaxx passport they are being bystander or, worse, tacitly supporting the abuse.”

    A CNN senior producer who once bragged about working “shoulder-to-shoulder” with former anchor Chris Cuomo has been charged with seeking to coax underage girls to his home by offering to train them to be “sexually submissive.”

    John Griffin, 44, appeared Friday in federal court via Zoom in New Haven, Connecticut, after being indicted by a grand jury on three counts of “using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Vermont.

  27. Doctor Warns Stillbirths Are Rampant Among Fully Vaccinated Mothers, Launches Investigation

    The Center For Disease Control and the federal government is adamant that pregnant women get a COVID-19 injection.

    But data doesn’t support its safety and health practitioners around the world are sounding the alarm.

    A Canadian doctor, who has effectively treated COVID patients with Ivermectin throughout, urges pregnant women to abstain from getting the COVID injections.

    Speaking to a reporter in November, Dr. Daniel Nagase argues COVID vaccines are directly attributed to an alarming increase in stillbirths across Canada.

    • From the looks of it it’s a drawing up needle. Used to pull medication from an ampule into a syringe. They’re quite thick and have no point on the end ie just a cylinder. Hard to puncture the skin with one and it would really hurt. Vaccination needles are fine in comparison.

    The housing market is done. But just remember that a 50% drop is nothing. It’s simply a return to what prices were a few months back. 75% is needed, at least, for it to be a reasonable adjustment.

    Only a small percentage will be affected and the (((banks))) will be fine.

    • Your housing envy shows greatly, are you just sour because you didnt get in on the action?
      If your waiting to snap up a bargain dont hold your breath, i doubt there will be a correction or the banks will tip up and stupid winnie signed us up to “bail in” then robbo gauranteed deposits up to 100k.
      If any of the big banks topple the rich get haircuts and those with under 100k get bailouts with yet more printed money… by that stage owning a home will be the least of our worries as most will have to sell it to buy a few weeks worth of super inflated groceries.

      Imo unless a bank goes under i doubt prices will go backwards except for a few desperate sellers but cashed up investors will likely swoop and fight over them keeping the prices up anyway.

      Sorry birdy but you missed the boat although heading south you may find something affordable.

          Im blown away at kiwis lack of understanding around bail ins, it affects anyone with money in the bank including 50% of your kiwisaver (employer contributions are safe, but your contributions and govts bonus bux are fair game)

          A quick google reveals the 30 and 50k limits were sidelined and delayed to make way for the 100k deposit insurance… they plan to introduce it in 2023. Guess most kiwis are going to own nothing and be happy 🙁 if ever there was a time needed for deposit insurance its now!
          Anyone with any half decent amount of money in the bank is a mug.

    Here in Orakei, there are a lot of state housing tenants, so it’s normal to see a couple of trolleys up against the sides of hedges.

    Sadly, it’s nothing new for the Eastern suburbs (Or for the rest of NZ BTW), and has always been ‘A means to an end’; a ‘Means’ to get your food (Whether purchased legally or ‘acquired’) and an ‘End’ as in once it’s usefulness has come to an ‘End’ (ie, you’ve reached ‘Home’ and unloaded-it),l it can be abandoned as having proved useful and is now worthy of no further concern.

    ‘Someone’ will come along ‘sometime’ and until that happens, it’s simply a matter of leaving it wherever you wish and as it’s usefulness has passed it’s ‘Not my problem’,

    Should you however actually feel ‘Some’ attachment to the ‘trolley, (or if you are feeling either ‘aggrieved’ or ‘creative’, or perhaps ‘suffering’ from the effects of weed. alcohol or Meth) you can always beat the daylights out of it and create some ‘Modern Sculpture’ (Just don’t call the City Art Gallery), give it ‘Swimming lessons’ in the Tamaki or the Waitemata, or perhaps ‘Flying lessons’ off the cliffs up-behind St. Heliers. .

    Actually taking the trolley back to where it originated is , of course, simply NOT DONE and would completely let the side down should one do so!!

    As a result of such activities, the losses and repair costs to supermarkets are quite substantial -and are always passed-on to the customer…

    • The situation in Japan is a little different.
      Police sitting around with nothing much to do. Strong “broken windows” policy.
      Every supermarket pays a couple of elderly pensioners $12 and hour to watch all the exits of the carpark. If anyone attempts to leave with a trolley, the elderly “guard” warns them to put the trolley back. If that doesn’t work, he speed-dials the local police box (koban ref: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UN6vi7N0gVg) about a couple of km away, and within minutes, a local bobby on his white 50cc Honda will show up.

      • Maybe Japan is blessed with laws worthy of respect. I grew up in an era where people were pedantic about law. “You will obey the law” was a mantra but those who uttered the mantra weren’t necessarily quite so law abiding when it came to vacating their favourite watering hole at 6pm sharp. Not so long as the local cop was somewhere else anyway.

        But it was politicians that killed respect for laws in NZ. They are too gutless to amend those routinely disobeyed because society has changed, eg use & possession of marijuana & insist on passing new legislation to indicate preferences in behaviour rather than expecting compliance.

  32. Stunning: Facebook court filing admits ‘fact checks’ are just a matter of opinion
    By Thomas Lifson
    Surprisingly little attention is being paid to a bombshell admission made by the attorneys representing the corporation formerly known as Facebook, Inc., which has now transitioned into Meta Platforms, Inc.

    In a court filing responding to a lawsuit filed by John Stossel claiming that he was defamed by a “fact check” Facebook used to label a video by him as “misleading,” Meta’s attorneys assert that the “fact check” was an “opinion,” not an actual check of facts and declaration of facts. Under libel law, opinions are protected from liability for libel.

    October 26, 2021
    The MIMIX patch is designed to be the easiest and most effective way to deliver vaccines and therapeutics. The patch releases treatments to the body at their most beneficial rate and duration. For vaccines, the controlled release simulates the pace of a natural infection, helping the body produce a slow, strong, and enduring ramp-up of immune response, ultimately boosting a vaccine’s effectiveness. Engineered for stability, Vaxess’ patch does not require refrigeration and can be shipped to and applied in low resource settings. It is virtually painless and resembles an adhesive bandage. After the minutes-long prescribed wear time, the MIMIX patch is removed and discarded while leaving behind microscopic intradermal depots to present the therapeutic payloads to the immune system over ensuing days or weeks.

Human ingenuity will find a way. For instance when I was incarcerated at boarding school nearly sixty years ago we weren’t allowed cash so cigarettes were the standard currency.

          In all seriousness it has to be something physical (digital and wifi has massive risks of being controlled) , small so its easily exchangable and also needs to be relatively rare so as any old noddy can just go polish up a few old washers.

          The basic universal mediums if exchange havent changed for centuries and probably since the dawn of mankind… labour, food and pussy. If you have any of those 3 to offer you can likely strike a deal, next best choice would be gold and silver.

        You can print out your wallet and coin codes so you could still technically buy offline but it needs to go online to complete the transaction on the blockchain. It would also require a bit of trust as essentially any offline transactions would be equivilent to writing a cheque… weve all had a rubber cheque thats bounced at some stage.

        Personally i like shiny things esp precious metals, can easily hide it, easily exchangable, steady value, impossible for anyone to know how much you have and it can be kept under your full control (never store it in a vault/ deposit box as also subject to “bail in” laws)

      They have the same issue in aussie too and its carnage over there, instead of highly skilled kiwis or irish theyve got 16 and 17yr old aussies on their phones trying to drive expensive complicated machinery.
      My mate sent me a snapchat of a few results from those combos and its not good, they had a 700k tractor drive up the arse of a 900k header at speed… headers a write off, tractor a bit over 100k to repair, lucky it was the bosses 17yr old daughter that done it!
