People Who Don't Think

I recall reading a few weeks ago during the aftermath of South Island floods, criticism of the insurance industry over policy wordings to do with flood damage. In the comments section some halfwit was complaining that the industry distinguishes between a flood and a deluge and such distinctions are just too difficult for your average unteracheiving NCEA Labour cannon fodder voter to comprehend.

Then Adolf had a brainwave. He remembered that fine old insurance related song which was taught him in Sunday School. Do you remember the one about the wise man who built his house upon a rock?

To make insurance easy for Labour voters they simply need to learn this song. Here is the money section:-

Oh, the rain came down
And the floods came up
The rain came down
And the floods came up
The rain came down
And the floods came up
And the house on the sand went SPLAT!

There you have it. Simple, see?

A deluge comes down.

A flood comes up.

Even Chris Faafoi might get it.

Hmmm reminds me of the parable of the wise man and foolish man from the bible.

Foolish man built his house on sand.
Wise man built his house on a rock.

When the winds blew and the rains came the foolish man's house washes away, and the wise man's house stood strong as it was built on a rock.

Kris Fa'aGoff would just like to remind you tories that he was there when Noah built his waka out of wood, and it floated....well, until Noah gave the helm to someone who parked the waka on Mt Whatarat so he could grab some KFC.

Did Kris mention he cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the Mt Whatarat KFC?

Still does not absolve insurance companies -- they are scum:

-for their "confuse them with words strategy" -- having weasel words, changing clauses every year,
- paying themselves and their masters out all the reserves built up over the years with our premiums during the demutualisation frenzy in the later 90s early 2000s.
