CAN’T AFFORD ALL THEM WHITE ELEPHANTS, HEY?
Then make your catchment of taxpayers larger!
—and they call ME a dum’ animal …
My concern is the all-singing, all-dancing, new wonderful multimega-dollar development the Invercargill City Council is dabbling in. Both the ‘heritage’ buildings in the piccie below are to go, but the one towards the back will have its facade (only) retained as a sop to the damned reactionaries. Hah! Give ’em the ol’ one-two—
- One: boot out any existing businesses/tenants
- Two: bulldoze the whole ratty lot—
—and then build to the heart’s desire (regardless of effects on mere mortals nearby simply trying to scrape a living and/or a Return On Investment).
It will be an ongoing cesspit for the draining of the funds of innocents. But what do I know? I’m just an old dog—one who thought (hah!) that living a bit distant from Invercargill should be reasonably safe.
So even at my age I’m still ruefully learning—
COME ON, DAMMIT—COME ON!
A sense of humour is one thing, Sir.
The occasional sardonic remark might be acceptable (sometimes) but THIS—
Sydney, too, collected its best rains for four months, watering parched parklands and quelling nearby bushfires. The 48-hour tally to Saturday morning of more than 55 millimetres was almost as much as the combined totals for October to December.

—would be fine, God, if Thou dost not goeth too far.
So let’s not go overboard with Your rain, hey? Even though millions of prayers are finally being answered. (Wot? They stacked up in the pipeline so you’re making a ‘blanket’ post?)
(Anyhow, we were promised ‘fire, not a flood, next time’ so perhaps Big G has decided to pull the plug on His holy fires after reminding us of His holy awesomeness.)
“Nice try, Dog — but you know who’ll get the blame anyway!”
* And while we’re here — can anyone recommend a good ointment for scorched koala (and recipes for sizzled possum and roast roo)?
for Sydney, and the Australian bush fires … God has listened, heard, and is answering your prayers.
Bravo Zulu, all!
“There ya go, Gertie! God has listened!”
“Hey, you on the end—Miss Greta, take a bow!”
“Can’t … I’m overcome …”
“Emotion? That’s what ya get with a sheila on the team—”
“Fumes, Chief! Can we move a bit, before we pray some more?”
“Hey, Dog! Don’t I get no credit? … Bloody typical! Sheesh!
“Most people believe sin began in the Garden of Eden, but it didn’t. Sin began when God’s top angel Lucifer, decided to flex his power, and wanted to become equal to God…Isaiah 14:12-14…”

So before anyone might even think about the statement above, please grant me liberty to post the refresher below—
—and I wouldn’t dream of suggesting that there might be apparent contradictions inherent on/in D&DC’s blog* . (And now with due apologies I’m off to consult an expert—don’t wait up …)
* No, not mine, silly person … his, the religious guy’s.
A comment I made minutes ago on Ark’s blog (take a bow, you atheist lout)—
We may, of course, ignore the notion and simply have ‘faith’ — trust in The Lord from whom all blessings* flow, and all will be well (the testimony of six million Jews can’t be wrong, no?).
Yup. God is good.
* All cursings too, seeing that ‘The Lord’ is/was/will be the one and only Prime Mover.
I don’t think so …
In fact, from this guy’s offering, perhaps
I WASN’T RIGHT ENOUGH ~!
If you’re a ‘Global Heat-Death’ enthusiast try this (snippet below) in the light of
(a) history, and
(b) the infallibility of ‘Science’
—and have yourself an A-grade giggle.
A thought that further betrays me as a failed Prophet—the guy says it was coal dust they were gonna spread on the ice caps. Sheesh~! (I remembered it as being soot …)
IF THIS GUY
(chart) is telling the Truth—then all the ‘Warming’ Alarmists must be telling porkies* (they can’t both be right).
So here now, a nice chart—
—and tell me how it integrates into the world-view of rabid anthropogenic (oops) “rapid” Global Warming — you know, our Grand Ultimate Doom.
that climates tend to change a bit, except for the warm bits staying warm and the chilly bits keeping their cool … where’s the problem?
Is the current ‘unprecedented’ warmth any warmer than previous hotter times?
In the past our world has been a lot hotter—you don’t get all the coal Miss Greta is so upset about out of cold air.
No … I think Miss Puppet is a loose cannon. That’s her democratic right, to rave and screech to anyone dolt enough to listen. (One Adolf Hitler used the same methods generations ago. That hero cost the world in pain and pelf — Miss Greta is on course to put him in the shade.)
People, sheeple — The Beat Goes On …
