DEMOCRACY, AAAAAHHHH …

buzzard vulture copySHE CAN’T BE BEAT~!

First, your quote—

When the final report was released to the museum board eight months ago its members agreed it should be released to the public.

However, the councils had asked the board not to release it as they wanted time to read it in order to react if media asked them about it, Eagles said.

The board agreed, and several months later, in October, the councils again asked the museum board not to release the report which the board again agreed to, he said.

“Now we have a report that’s eight months old.

“It’s contents may be controversial … 

—and now, your refresher on the background: this vast ‘city’ of Invercargill* panic-closed one of its major tourist attractions for being “earthquake prone”. The same as was done to the iconic historical Water Tower—

—and the equally so Anderson Park historical home & art gallery—and for that matter, many of the buildings in the (historical) Central Business District. The shot above is the water tower; for source of quote click that pic.

—if you live in Ohio. It’s all good clean fun that diverts the thrust of education and pushes the boat out on behalf of wannabe mind controllers in The Land Of The Free … but wait, it gets better:

“The bill is called the Ohio Student Religious Liberties Act. It requires schools to give student religious groups the same access to facilities as secular groups.”

Not being a Yank I don’t really give a damn, it’s their problem — but believing in the Rights of Individuals, namely the right of equality before The Law—how far are they prepared to go with this farce? I said before, quoting a US Civil War general:

“Battles are won by whoever gets there firstest with the mostest”

and certainly religious nutcases are here attempting to pre-emptively seize the high ground. Next it will be that Degrees, Diplomas, Certificates etc will require—by law—entire sections on religious bullshit. The Bible, as a textbook*?

say nothing nowhere nohow no time without first running it through the officially approved ‘newspeak’ filters.

For myself, I like Free Speech.

Naughty words excepted (for moderns, that means something a little different from ‘accepted’) speech is simple device used for the passage of ideas from one human mind to another—filter it as thou wilt only on reception.

To control speech is to control thought.

Clever, but it’s been done before—concentration camps in places like **** ******* and ****** ****** and many others were/are full of ’em—the victims who transgressed speech laws.

And if any Silly Bitch, Religious-bigot Maniac or Unthinking Modern Prick reads this wanting my arrest for saying what I think—go suck eggs. (Bad eggs, really bad eggs; and swallow.)

Your quote—

At the meeting, Cochrane, speaking about the document and his time as part of a whitebait working party, said: “I sat there one day and I thought: ‘What I’m listening to is a whole bunch of chick scientists.’

“And if you really looked at the view that they were pitching, [it] was everybody in New Zealand should not shave their armpits, they should wear dreadlocks, and when they go whitebaiting they should do it in jandals only.

“And after they catch one patty for tea they should sit down, hold hands and sing Kumbaya. That was the feeling I got.”

I understand his feelings entirely. His mistake was not in saying it, but in not recognising that the world is changing, has changed; a poor judgement call on his part.

He’ll learn. And—

BY THEIR DEEDS

I think we have tee-shirts. (Or was that labelled jockey-shorts?) Sheesh! Where was I? Oh, yes … something to do with computers. I was reading something interesting somewhere and was reminded of yet something else I’d forgotten and had to look up—

down there

—which briefly reminded me of the Law Of Diminishing Returns (and that infinities make my fur stand on end and teeth itch). I’m told by clerics and other wise parasi– (oops) folks that only God is infinite … but if so, is He spared The Law? Why? Is a ‘law’ with exceptions actually a law, or merely an observation?

Anyway, the idea of The Infinite expanding infinitely to fill an ever diminishing void tickles my toesies and I’m off now to breakfast — the same “two fried eggs on cheese on toast” I’ve had for an almost infinite number of years and am still awaiting the (horror-shrieked)* heart attacks. (Don’t knock it — I may be a feature of habit but I love eggies!)

TO SET THE SCENE:

I found and snipped the below images from one of the many u-tubes I plough through—some of which offer pearls, others poops. With any such it’s always our own call but these images were presented as genuine “samples of ancient artworks” of “possibly oopart* dinosaur imagery”. The enthusiastic narrator burbled about how the site had oodles of such images, which apparently look a lot like dinos. But~

but no humans were around at the time such dinos trampled our planet underfoot; which could be bit of a worry—

Oh, yes! And/or WOW~!

Herewith a snippet of an organiser doing her thing—practical democracy in the field. My challenge for you is to look first at the images, and then to come up with a caption for each image—

She wanted (demanded? Of the sheeple? Naaaah …) compliance, no?

“WHITE PEOPLE, GET TO THE BACK!”

But don’t just take my word for it you damn’ honkies, go there for yourself — Reality is only one click away. (But why would such a modest person bellow such an order?)

Now I’m off to look up all possible meanings of the words “zealot” and “power hungry control freaks” “BS” and “suckers”. Don’t wait up … Reality, folks, is not a religion; despite the charisma of over-hyped sainted little puppets.

And why did Nice Lady insist on such a thing? Don’t ask me — I’m just a dum’ dog.

WOOF~!

 

 

 

 

WELCOME TO NZ~

172539-9215b10c-0afb-4179-8d30-cdb287e048fa—especially if you are any kind of entrepreneur.

I mean it! Given, say … that New Zealand has a long standing and well recognised ‘rabbit problem‘—

2013_squeensberry_rabbits_1.jpg

—might one sense an opportunity in these green fields? I mean bunnies go well in pies, no? But we seem to have too much of a good thing …

Mass poisonings, shooting drives, diseases, gas warfare, dogs, and gods alone know what else by way of desperate measures have been tried to limit the explosive growth in vast numbers of delicious feral protein:

Bob Thomson has run a sole operator rabbit processing plant on the outskirts of Christchurch for the past two decades, supplying wild rabbits to high end restaurants around the country and for pet food.

But he is drowning under a tsunami of paperwork.

“It all has to be up to human consumption standard because we are run under a risk management program and that risk management program requires about 20 lines of compliance at the moment.”

Maintaining his records took up to 40 hours a week.

A slip up in some paper work recently meant he had gone from audits every three months by the regulator, the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), to having these done every six weeks.

“It’s just gone crazy. I mean, you know we’re up to $175 an hour the auditor is charging us. It’s basically pricing it off the market.”

—so now let City Hall justify its position. No contradictions here? But hey—them bureaucrats gotta eat too, ya know! Fair deals, live and let live (rubber stamps ain’t cheap these days).

Then again … we could always pass the ‘rabbit problem’ back to our elected officials and just let them get on with it.
