Life goes on and the media remains tits.



The missing Million.
Totally irrelevant, can any sane person actually explain what difference they would have made and why they would not follow close to the same proportions as those who did vote, expressed.
Isn't that the way Polls work so why not the only poll that matters.

The extreme lengths that the Number One Manipulator went to to make a difference.
Real proof that big money cant buy elections because of the simple fact that voters have brains.
It might have worked had there been no internet that was impossible to silence.
Outcome a heap of money spent, hopefully a nice dump of GST,  Hadfield destroyed and finally a silence of the twits tweeting.

The incompetent MSM.
Totally enthralled by a high profile puppeteer seducing almost all of the tyro operators insufficiently talented to understand how they were being used with the best of them having decamped to more lucrative and user friendly working conditions as Publicity Officers.

The cast of candidates, mostly buried under the daily truckloads of compost generated by the puppeteer with his machinations and the now significantly discounted Hagar Saga, that starved candidates and voters of the oxygen needed for the process to operate.

Where to now, well remove the political entrail studying and yesterdays Plunket on 9 to noon on radio live was a graphic display of the  vacuum of desperation.
He spent almost the whole three hours trying to create a major news story from the OIA exposed paper that suggested the remnant Labour Dept now called Worksafe NZ had opinionated it was now safe to enter the drift of Pike River Mine to ascertain if any bodies could be retrieved.
That did not include the areas where the bodies are most likely to be.
Resorting to feigned anger, frustration and hyperbole he failed as those who will make the move to re-enter the mine will be first against the wall should another disaster eventuate.
Because you wish it does not make it so.

Likewise the chorus of advisers with equally inane opinions around the NZLP problems and a possible resolution.
The first requirement to deal with a train wreck is heavy lifting equipment to safely move the wreckage and with King, Mallard, Goff, Cosgrove, Shearer, Mahuta, Moroney, Parker piled up with Cunliffe it is going to take time.
Sheesh one deluded soul was claiming Helen Clark is a possible solution, must have been a  monumentally stupid question.
The War Room used The History Lecturer to coach Mr c for the debates, how did that work out? It just nourished his narcissistic personality and exposed a less agreeable apology

In the interum Peters goes back to sleep for 30 months, Slaters Blog continues on its enhanced merry way as does Farrer's.
The Standard and The Daily Blog look inward, reflect and lick their wounds.

The most popular Prime minister in almost 80 years just turns up to work and gets on with real  things and the inept media continue their headlong plunge to irrelevance.

These first two terms of Key's government have felt like continuing the style of Clark's first two terms --- but keeping all the disastrous polices of Clark's third term.

This election has given Key a far better result than 2011 or 2008 - the country feels different, feels like a decisive shift to the right after 20 long years of leftism under Bolger, Shipley, Clark, and Key.

Key's government really starts today, and will easily last for another two or three terms.

Here's hoping he's already looked in the mirror, and decided now is the time to put NZ Right.

Starting by throwing 75,000 bludgers off the public tit (and not letting any of 'em back on) is a really great start.

Smashing the teachers unions would be a great second move.

Listened to Plunket yesterday and just couldn't get the hoopla he was burning calories to create (no disrespect to the families of Pike River victims).

Talkback used to be a forum where people rang in to talk about whatever was concerning them.

Now the host drives the agenda, confines the topic to his choice and the result is media-driven hysteria.

When I was a life broker I avoided doing business with people who listened to talk back radio. They were the unintelligent being manipulated by the unenlightened.

I prefer not to deal with people who put other people in boxes and label them. I also prefer not to listen to "Red Radio" as Plunket describes the state broadcaster. And I certainly don't want to listen to my own inner dialogue day in and day out. What do you listen to Adolf?

A valid point Adolf but Wednesday am was a reading precluded time and it was Plunket who got to fill a void.
His faux anger tilting at that windmill came from a desire to follow Mr c's little problems.

As for me I would seal it, make it a tomb and tell Monk, Kokshoorn and co to find a more worthy good work.

To risk a single life to find bugger all is a folly with no tangible outcome.
Four years on, the families need to move on and holding them in the midst of the grief cycle is an abomination, unconscionable really.

I gave up listening to NZ radio years ago, and can highly recommend the wide variety of daily or weekly podcasts where you can listen to educated and informed discussion and debate. My favourites are the Tom Woods Show, Econtalk, Stanford's Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders. I'm sure there are many more.

I enjoy Mike Hosking and Leighton on ZB, and if that means I face avoidance from the likes of you "Adolf" then my step won't lose it's spring anytime soon.
