KINDA SEZ IT ALL





and lets not even talk about tax policy (although the water tax policy remains in extant ... minus numbers ... along with regional petrol taxes along their cow fart tax along with and along with) and u-turns and Captains calls and flip flops.

It sure does. Loud and clear the message comes through: "This clapped-out governing party has nothing for the election campaign but lying attack ads about its opponents."

LOL Psycho Milt is Clark Gayford and I claim my $5.

The vacuity of Ms Ardern is award winning.

Don't worry. In a few months time she'll be replaced as Labour leader and she'll rush off to have all those children she's told all the wimmins' reporters about.

I just hope she takes them to a better orthodontist than the ones Labour's photoshoppers are using.

Troll Adolf DLT.......Playing the man not the ball again by using a ad hominem argument.

An ad hominem argument is one that is used to counter another argument, but it is based on feelings of prejudice (often irrelevant to the argument), rather than facts, reason or logic. It is often a personal attack on one's character rather than an attempt to address the issue at hand. It also reveals the paucity of a rigorous intellect.

It has been discovered to my cost that using a ad hominem argument against DLT results in in being deleted........they don't like it up 'em Mr Mainwaring.

So the storm in a c-cup turns out to be fake news.....before rushing to print would it not be good idea to verify your sources. Apologies due to the readership I think, after all promulgating fake news puts us on the same level as the St Petersburg troll factory.

You can't really sell English and Lyn' Joyce can you boys? Perhaps getting vicious and personal will do it instead. Keep it up. I gotta say, Adolt is outdoing himself.

It doesn't say anything because she's not 40. They got the first thing completely wrong.

I know a bloke, a good bloke, who has never had a "real job".

Went from School to Uni and in to one of those elite professions where he never had to raise a sweat working, never had to pay a bill, didn't know how to repair a car engine, was hopeless at pulling chicks, never went out and got drunk after the rugby, in fact, he didn't even like rugby. The world of business is a mystery to him. But he thinks they can pay more tax to fund his workplace.

All he ever seemed to care about was people, how well they were doing, or not. He saw it as his life's work to "save" people. Many of those he "saved" were not even aware of his presence at the time.

My mate's a doctor who works with Doctors Without Borders.

He has a real job doing stuff funded by like minded people. My wife's gynacologist does a lot of charity work because he can afford to and he perceives his belief system requires it of him. The gulf between these and Jacinda is huge and you should know it. She will never be more than a shouter of slogans.

Remind me again how many young doctors have Kenya on their CV?

A "real" job is one you get paid for. Beyond that, claims about what constitutes a "real" job are a matter of bullshit opinions. I don't see how having the country run by a professional politician could be worse than having it run by a currency trader, not to mention the fact that it's currently run by a professional politician (which is the only thing you can call someone who's been in politics for half his lifetime).

Johno said...


The currency trader had a team in cabinet that included people with all kinds of experience in the private sector. There were farmers, entrepreneurs, CEOs, recruiters, lawyers, doctors, scientists, builders...

The fish and chip shop worker has a team that consists of close to zero private sector experience. That bunch knows nothing of running a business, having to be competitive and efficient to survive, knowing what it is like to hire and be responsible for employees, deal with government bureaucracy etc. All they know is working for government and unions. Hopelessly narrow world view.

And Johno,[above] lets not be shy. Socialism is evil in its effects. Adern is an unreconstructed Socialist, her campaign a relentless negative and divisive class war.

And if the NZ government were a private enterprise, that would probably be a very useful skill set to bring to it. Thing is though, it's not a private enterprise. It needs to be run by people who understand the public sector, something of which National Party cabinets tend to be woefully ignorant, and which tends to show in their performance. Labour's front bench is way more qualified to run a government than their National equivalents.

Johno said...

lol theit team have been in government or opposition for over a decade and they have the public service at their behest. Your attempted point is quite laughable!

Such a relief to participate in a Trump free discussion. Firstly a Minister does not stamp his or her authority based on a previous life the dept. they are put in charge of. There seems to be this strange idea that if you are the boss you can do as you like, Same with Fatboy Nork and Trump (bugger I shouldn't have said that). A proper university degree is helpful because it indicates an organised mind, but that's it.

A bricklayer can be as useful as a university professor because all have to handle the advise given by their advisors. What is in great demand is worldly experience and a knowledge of human nature. Neither professions guarantee that.
