Medical Marijuana Campaign

I've got no sympathy for this campaign.

The medical cannabis argument is simply a first stage to decriminalization of marijuana.

And that quite frankly is to the benefit of no one except the hop heads. And yes I've had my taste and more before anyone gets on their high horse.
My brother (a former drug and alcohol councilor) had a huge hard on about dope and used to quote studies and the like about the harm it did.
Now I'm not my brother and I don't have access to that info so when you all come crawling out of the woodwork demanding it I'm not going to be able to supply but the one thing I do know is it exists and the harm done by THC is NOT fictional.
And as its the THC component the legalise by stealth actually want I'm not really interested.

I don't believe there is any other agenda and call BS on the fact that for some people other available pain relief doesn't work.

Work Till I Die

I am under no illusion that I will do anything other than work to the day I die.
An unfair tax regime and a brutal divorce have seen to that.

At one time in my life I was being taxed at 66cents on the dollar in a job where I swung a shovel, drove heavy dangerous machinery and was seriously injured twice, all because I worked hard and did long hours.
More than 30 years later little has changed as those that work hard and are productive are taxed to death to support those that refuse to.

WFF and interest free student loans, a benefit system that encourages wastrels to breed to avoid work and a high tax ceiling set at a ridiculously low level designed to punish even the lowliest of wage slaves if they work hard enough have contributed to this.

Meanwhile those that earn excessive incomes, use trusts, property and sharp accounting to pay virtually nothing yet claim the largess above of WFF and IFSL continue to prosper and retire aged 50 to suck the life out of the rest of us.

Yep. That's what I expect. And for those that are bludging off the sweat of my brow I hope you are proud of yourselves.

Islam Explained

In light of recent barbaric events I think the following is appropriate. If you don't or feel the need to snivel about it tough fucking shit!

Why are Islamic Terrorists so quick to commit suicide?
Let’s have a look at the facts:
- No Christmas
- No television
- No nude women
- No football
- No pork chops
- No hot dogs
- No burgers
-No beer
- No bacon
- Rags for clothes
- Towels for hats
- Constant wailing from some idiot in a tower
- More than one wife
More than one mother in law!!!
- You can't shave
- Your wife can't shave
- You can't wash off the smell of donkey
- You cook over burning camel shit
- Your wife is picked by someone else for you
- and your wife smells worse than your donkey
Then they tell you that "when you die, it all gets better"??
Well no sh*t Sherlock!....
It's not like it could get much worse

They're not happy in Gaza ..
They're not happy in Egypt ..
They're not happy in Libya ..
They're not happy in Morocco ..

They're not happy in Iraq ..
They're not happy in Yemen ..
They're not happy in Afghanistan ..
They're not happy in Pakistan ..

and unhappy in every country that is!


Not Islam.
Not their leadership.

AND THEN; They want to change those countries to be like....

Bernard Hickey won't be popular for stating the obvious

Its not often I agree with Bernard Hickey, for an economist he spends an awful lot of time on the left hand side of the road if you know what I mean.

Today he will have all the immigration apologists in a lather as he points out the painfully obvious and shows some true figures instead of the ambiguos dribble being touted by English and Key and regurgitated by the likes of Mike Hosking.

Anyone who claims that these people were needed and aren't simply being brought into the country in an effort to keep wages and conditions low is deluded. Did we really need 400 truck drivers or did we need 400 truck drivers that will drive for the min wage?

"Peters has been on a very high horse about migration, but his main concern is the astonishing growth in the number of working holiday and foreign student visas, particularly over the past three years."
The constant banging away at Peters as a racist is a ploy of those that have a vested interest in seeing house prices rise and keeping our lowest paid workers wages to the absolute minimum possible.  Peters isn't racist, he's a pragmatist that tells it like it is. But its easy to shut his message down by painting the messenger as a racist.

"Less than 50 per cent of the 72,000 jump in annual net migration since 2012 was driven by these transtasman flows and no one is suggesting these can or should be stopped.
But that still leaves more than 36,000 extra new migrants over the past year, compared with four years ago. Who are they, if they're not permanent and high-skilled residents?"
As I said the other day

"The occupations of working holidaymakers and students able to work here aren't given, but anyone frequenting the cafes, bars, dairies, Uber cabs and service stations of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown will have a reasonable idea."
Exactly, you only have to walk into any of these places to be served by someone that can barely speak a word of English or does so with an American accent that when confronted with a word or phrase outside their basic understanding simply fob you off or get a stupid look on their faces or start talking to you like you have a problem with them. These kids are keeping the rates down, living 10 to a room like they always have and stopping other kids (Kiwi ones) and low skilled adults from getting this work and seeing an increase in wages as the supply and demand rule kicks in.
The Government has managed to prevent that by artificially creating a plentiful supply of low skilled workers.

"It [Treasury] released a series of papers over the past year that showed its growing discomfort with the increase in low-skilled migrants and the risk that they are displacing local workers and keeping wages down.
"Current policy settings may not be doing all they can to support the growth of higher productivity firms and industries, including facilitating the flow of higher-skilled migrants to sectors of the economy where skill shortages may be acting as a significant constraint," Treasury officials said."
And this sent the Mike Hoskings and Bob Jones of the world into a tailspin accusing treasury or racism and playing to the crowd and of not following their masters wishes. Its not treasury's job to pander to the Government its their job to advise the Government. If they don't like or follow that advice well so be it. We voted for them.

"This may have been discouraging some firms from either increasing wages and working conditions or investing, either in training existing workforce or in capital," they [Treasury] said."
Really? May have? It bloody well is and anyone with eyes to see can see it.

Hickey continues with this

"Key is right about the pressures on the system and the need for more houses, but he is wrong about our recent migration patterns making the country richer. It has made some richer by pushing up land prices in Auckland and beyond, but it has led to stagnant wage and real GDP growth and has lumped a big up-front infrastructure bill on to taxpayers in general and Auckland rate payers in particular."
 Multiculturalism doesn't work and mass migration only benefits the migrants. This has always been the case.
It's well past time the tap was turned off.

Three Imbeciles Catch the Wrong Bus

Another hit job by the NZ Herald on a kiwi business. This time Naked Bus is under the gun because three utter fucking halfwits that can't read an email attachment think they should get their picture in the paper have a bleat and get a refund?

"Three Chinese students saw more of New Zealand than they bargained for - ending up in Tauranga instead of their planned destination of the Waitomo Caves."
Well surprise...
"One of the trio, a student who wanted to be referred to only as Emma, said there was no warning on the booking website that they needed to change buses at Hamilton for the 71.4km leg of the trip to the Waitomo Caves.
But the required switch was referred to in an email attachment sent to the women."
But nooooo....its still the bus companies fault and the Herald still runs with the hit job...

"Emma hoped the company would refund the roughly $90 each woman paid for the return trip, but said it wasn't just about the money.
"I want them to really think about why their system is not complete."
The only thing not complete is this incompetent bitches sense of responsibility and ownership of her own abject fucking stupidity!

"She feared other travellers [sic] might also have suffered a similar fate."
 Bullshit. Sniveling little bitch wants a refund on stupidity and will probably get one just because nobody wants bad publicity even when they are completely blameless.

My comment to WO on "Garner has no ides"

Well no.... he doesn't. He's a socialist whiner but so what?

Slater makes the comment "All of those things. Mind you I have worked more than 18 days straight…when was the last time you did that Duncan. "
Well again so what? It cracks me up when fucking elitists make unqualified statements like that. His idea of 18 days straight will be sitting on his arse on his blog that he gets up and leaves from any time he chooses and does other things then comes back to.

I've worked 100's of days straight more than once in low wage jobs. I keep making the same points but some dimwitted fucks don't get it, that it is possible to earn high yearly incomes and be taxed to death doing shit work.

The immigrant argument is a load of BS.
The reality is these people are lowering wages and conditions for low waged Kiwi's while at the same time putting more money in the pockets of unscrupulous (and the not so) employers pockets while at the same time driving the price of housing up in an over heated market.

The apologists for mass immigration like Mike Hosking do not live in the communities that are being overrun with people that are really here to take jobs off low skilled kiwis. The argument that they (kiwis) don't want the work is complete rubbish.

My ex wife has applied for numerous jobs in service industries like Mitre10 and Mobil service stations and has never got past the front door as without fail the work is given to Indian and Chinese students.

When was the last time anyone saw a middle aged white woman working in a Mobil in Auckland? In fact it would be appropriate to suggest that in Auckland anyway many of these industries are actually applying racist employment policies and simply employing their own.

As to this"But, here’s the thing, why don’t those bludgers go and get one of those jobs…that way the farmer or horticulturist or viticulturist won’t have to employ foreigners?
They simply won’t get off their arses to go to work. That is why we need immigrants."

Again I call bullshit. The reality was that agriculture was finally having to pay people better than min wage to front up so instead of raising wages to reflect the skill levels they flood the country with migrants that stay exactly long enough to gain residency and then piss off off the farms and into the cities.

Let's Tap the Boss for Some More Free Time Off

The NZ Herald has decided to start another moronic ill conceived campaign and has handed the poisoned chalice to Cherie Howie, this time for another day off because if you don't live in South Canterbury then there are no free (statutory) holidays until Labour Weekend after this weekend. Well boo bloody hoo.

At first I thought this was a joke until I saw the Heralds editorial. Even Peter Dunne (nothing) is against it but does get in his republican views and some more pandering to Maori with the idea that the made up joke festival of Matariki Day should replace Queens Birthday.

These halfwit socialists seem to have the misguided idea that the Government controls our holiday time. They don't. They control the legislation.

In NZ we have 31 days of leave of which 20 are annual leave entitlements and 11 are stat days. ANZAC day and Waitangi Day have been made floating leave days now so we miss no days that fall on a weekend.

In the rankings of countries we sit at 50th in terms of days off ahead of Australia in 54th place with 30 days.
In front of us and leading the race is Cambodia with a mind boggling 42 days of leave per year and Austria not to far behind at 38. Malta, Mauritius,France, Slovinia and a wealth of other socialist countries all up in front of us along with most of the basket cases from Africa and Eastern Europe.

So instead of another pathetic campaign why don't the lazy useless shiftless employees at the NZ Herald take a few of those other 20 days they have off and take their own extended long weekends? It's what I'll be doing!
