IN HUMAN RIGHTS
being inalienable etc etc … this guy (see quote below) who is “up to his neck in learning yet devoid of knowledge” disturbs me. He brandishes the plumage of a ‘One World Government’ enthusiast; which in the position he holds is not good—as an educator in a respected university he should be objective. I find him objectionable.
Much future damage caused by climate change cannot now be avoided. But wise policy-making can still limit the impact of this impending disaster – if all nation-states take the challenge seriously. As Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has remarked, “We cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis.”
In my humble opinion Miss Greta comes across as emotionally disturbed, an immature child still lacking common courtesies. I see her as a cleverly manipulated glove puppet; who once her usefulness has passed its ‘use by’ date will be pensioned off to a nice sinecure somewhere deep within the (so called) United Nations.
Should be fact-based and objective. There is a crisis, granted … but it is a crisis of Reality. Poorly educated voters cast on emotion, not content; so sadly our realities are ruled by feelings rather than facts. By beliefs, in fact. The loudest screechers in our ‘democracies’ will win … after which might makes its own right, no?
as epitomised by one cigar-chomping bowler-hatted elderly eccentric mid last century. He was at the time making a short-term (but indeterminate) prediction tailored to meet ‘the exigencies of the moment‘. Which we now know it did. Pithy, but germane. Kudos.
All I can offer is BS&T too, so if you don’t like it go read some cheery burbling optimist’s blog. Or if you can
- make the effort, and
- stand the pace
read between the lines of what passes as ‘news’. Meantime you’d do yourself a lot less worse if you stop listening to your blasted experts and just run with your personal conclusions gleaned from such facts as you can find. (Gleaned objectively … aye, there’s the rub.)
Remember always that good ol’ saying from the world of modern computers
—and of course, keep your powder dry. Tread softly and carry a big stick …
As a Chinese damsel said to me through tears generations ago, “GOOD DUCK!” — you’re gonna need it. Again, keep your powder dry and remember always that
- anyone elected to serve
- does so
- to serve himself first
—always look askance at anyone wishing to serve YOU. (Breathe deep, you may detect the aroma of rat.)
ex, and spert.

Now: what is the ‘half life’ of a fact?
“The World Health Organisation (WHO) is understood to be on the verge of doing a U-turn on its mask advisory.
Epidemiologist and face mask supporter Michael Baker … yesterday said WHO officials were actively reconsidering the global health organisation’s stance on face masks.
“It will almost certainly change,” Prof Baker said.
To date, WHO has said there was no evidence wearing a mask protected against the virus.
It only recommended the use of masks by members of the public who had symptoms or were caring for people who had Covid-19 …
The Ministry of Health said for most people wearing masks was not recommended.
The ministry had been asked whether a U-turn by WHO would result in it changing its advice to New Zealanders and whether a change of policy would mean it was compulsory to wear face masks in public …”

No cynical bleat would be complete without mention of a rising star in NZ … one Professor Robert Patman who seems to be taking the NZ media by storm. From Otago University (home of ‘progressives’) he’s the definitive expert on man-made global warming (it’s all our fault, apparently) … and now on matters medical.
He could even be in line for Prime Minister in just a few years if he plays his cards right, maybe a knighthood?
Certainly he’s doing well, even without my help.
I’m off now to look up the expression “One World Government” … that is, after I’ve considered all possible meanings of the word ‘temporary’ (definitions may have changed since I was a pup).
as if we don’t have enough troubles. I posted this on Ark’s blog and being a sucker for punishment am inviting rebuttal—
—which I fear may be a loooong time coming. So, all you religionists and other debatably ‘nice’ people … this isn’t so much an invitation as a challenge. Feel free …
TO THEE …
or not. It all depends on whose claims you believe. As a dog I don’t have to believe in any ‘cos all dogs go to Heaven … just try some of the miracle cures and who knows, perhaps your troubles really will all be over (ask President Trump about his proffered CV19 injection cures) … digression … oh, yes, your quote:
Ngatea man Roger Blake, who sells the bleach through his online business NZ Water Purifier Limited, is a ‘bishop’ of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing.
The ‘church’ originated in Florida and is not religious. Its sole function is to promote the use of the bleach formula that it calls Miracle Mineral Supplement, or MMS, which its followers also sell. (To become a ‘bishop’ of the church, one can download a $320 video course, and must provide two video testimonials of people who have been ‘treated’ with MMS.)

May your Dog protect you from all harm, regardless. Trust in Dog from whom all blessings flow, Dog will never harm you … but beware of wolfs in sheep clothings, and many other marvellous modern miracles. Brrrr. Buy now and you get extra:
Various claims about MMS made by Genesis II leaders include that it can cure HIV, hepatitis, acne, cancer and now Covid-19 …

Self-interest is the greatest motivational force
- on the planet
- invoked by any form of government
- in the English lexicon
It’s beneficial when harnessed by YOU in your own interests, and at it’s most vicious when invoked by others in YOUR interests. Now go look up the words ‘Lenin’ and ‘Stalin’ and ‘Communism’. I can wait, go get ’em Tiger (and prove me wrong).

Nice. A government that actually cares. (Sweet, unusual, impossible, and very welcome too)(for some?)
But for cynics like moi (and any Realists alike) there’s always the ‘but’. I mean, take this ‘government support’ for example—who is this government? Are our rulers going to dip into their own pockets? Wow! But I doubt it. So: whose pockets ARE they dipping into? Taxes will be going up, no? And immensely. Or:
the nice Government is raising (more) loans overseas
Yep, more loans.
But loans are free money, no? They never have to be paid back!
Interesting point. But if in the future some damned capitalist lender does want its damned dosh back—will it be our caring Government who pays it back? (It will? Oh … that’s just so very sweet of them; has New Zealand after thousands of years finally invented the genuine altruist?)
Or, if as I suspect it’s ME that has to cough up, me who has to finance the largesse of a government (of self-obsessed individuals hiding behind a facade of ‘group’ activity, group decisions) — I just hope that I’m never repossessed.
Face it, Kiwi … you are in for a bit of a rough ride.

So don’t ask me—I’m just a dog. Go ask a people … actually, you don’t need ask ’em, just watch ’em. Observe, and as the famous Pogo said, in words to the effect:
