Why The Hysteria Over Roe v Wade Does Not Matter Other Than Luxon Is The Winner Today

Image
Right now the most epic thing online is watching the political left explode about Roe v Wade. Especially as they think it has relevance in New Zealand.  Or anywhere else in the world. It does not. Yes I’m talking about you Nanaia Mahuta. Now obviously I am in favour of abortion. More abortion. I want abortion to be more frequent than it is now. If you cannot feed the child you should not breed. I want every woman who cannot afford to have that child, who is not in a stable relationship, to abort that child. Disgusting? Well…. I don’t consider a fetus a life etc…I wish more people who do not want or cannot afford children, to kill them off before they’re born.  Because that is what you do when you abort a child. Not pretty.  Regardless.  When a mother may die if their child is not aborted, same thing.  Awful decisions made at awful times.  No one wants to talk about it because the decision to do so must be beyond awful. BUT I am a political right winger. The political LEFT are going ful

The Romanticisation of Maori Culture Reaches A New Peak Mental

Image
Every second of this last week it appears New Zealand's team of $55m is shoving out pumped up nonsense about the Maori culture. Matariki apparently means we cannot have sales in shops and "commercialisation". Yet looking around there are no shortage of exploitation by Maori and other Maori aligned friends and consultants, of the weekend off.  A completely made up holiday.  The difference between this one and Easter and Christmas is us adults in the room actually know they are made up holidays based on story time.  Adults are being forced to run with this nonsense of Matariki and play along with it for fear of the town square throwing rocks in your face. But putting this obvious observation of the nonsense to one side, this piece springs to mind as the most demented so far by Stuff, on The Lion King. The  Lion King's history is on Wikipedia.   An average cartoon classic made into a hit ironically with a fat, old, gay, pasty colonial in Sir Elton John contributing to a

Chinese Slumlords Appropriating Maori Culture

Image
When working in Hong Kong a daily laugh were the company names the Chinese clients would wish to incorporate. Companies like Bright Horse Limited, Shining Sun Limited, Prospect Happiness Limited, Ever Love Limited. A bastardisation of our language with meaningless word soup. During my brief period in life working in New Zealand it laughed up an entire cubicle as we found records for Butt Prospecting Limited. You can look that one up yourselves for amusement as to the owner. Today Stuff, you know, the fountain of truth, pumped out this beauty clickbait. Jesus, you have to click on that as it is so bad.  Here is the link. The tenants took their landlord Mauri Ora Limited to the tenancy tribunal and said there were times they’d flush the toilet and faeces and toilet paper would come out the other side of the Kelston house. Yes okay so at that point you want to know who these Maori are who are shit landlords don't you? Don't you? Mauri Ora if you give it a bit of a google means:

The Taniwha And The Tiger Mum

Penny Wong has arrived so the South Pacific finally has an adult in the room. While I care none for her politics, I do not doubt her competency to deal with matters at hand, no matter how misguided.  You could not see a larger contrast with Nanaia Mahuta if you tried. Wong has already clocked more air miles than Mahuta in the whole time Mahuta has held the Foreign Affairs portfolio.  She will outwit, outwork and outplay Mahuta.  Mahuta will continue to speak her brand of muddled word soup in the play room.  She has a ll the gear and no idea and thinks nothing of New Zealand, only of Maori. If Mahuta and Wong ever have a disagreement I know where I would put my money.  Wong is one of the "Mean Girls" in Australia and is known to be an out and out bitch when required. The Tiger mum is not afraid of a Taniwha in protecting her territory. New Zealand will be returning to be Australia's little nodding bitch in the natural order of matters now Wong is in charge.  Mahuta will b

Democracy On Colour Of Scott Base But Not Maori Co-Governance!

Image
  So we are allowed to voice an opinion on something as extraneous as the colour to paint a place barely any of us wish to, or will go...... Antarctica New Zealand asked the country to vote for one of three colour choices for the exterior paint job – kikorangi, karaka or kākāriki (blue, orange or green) – for the $344 million rebuild of the Scott Base research hub. Close to 10,000 votes have been cast as of Monday afternoon ahead of the cut-off at midnight Tuesday.   BUT we are not allowed to vote on a change from the democracy in which we all know. Jacinda Ardern is marching to the beat of her racist "kill a white" extremists in the Maori caucus and MahutaCorp to force through changes in all manner of legislation, as outlined by the activist Maori Studies 101 paper that is He Puapua.  A paper the Party had commissioned but refused to take to the people at the last election. Such change that He Puapua advocates should require a referendum at the very least.  Maori are not a d

Nothing Smells Worse Than The Burn Of Sanctimonious White Guilt

  This is beyond hilarious. Here we have a man taking a dump all over his own family's history using a modern construct from a safe job in academia. As reported from "Te Māngai Pāho and the Public Interest Journalism Fund".  In other words - the team of $55m. "People's land was stolen and my great-grandfather was a beneficiary of that process . I could avoid knowing anything about any of it for 55 years. To me, that's what Pākehā privilege looks like. There it is, right there," Prof Shaw told The Hui. Right. Mr Shaw is trying to advance his own finances and academic career by selling books and gaining taxpayer grants.  But no, this is not his issue to own as his family sold the land, he would have given it back!: After three generations, Prof Shaw's family sold their land to other farmers in the 1970s.  "There will be people who have written to me and said, 'You should return that land or your family should return that land'. It's n

New Zealand Will NEVER Be The First Choice For Talent

Image
I am sorry. Not. There is not one country right now I could not go and live in if I really wanted to. New Zealand needs to stop the delusion that "talent" wants to actually come to New Zealand to work.  That cannot already get in. New Zealand is the last chance western country for immigration. Seriously? Who are these people? And wtf does any of the above actually mean? Indian Uber drivers? Filipino chefs? "Students" doing basket weaving courses? If you cannot already get into New Zealand or Australia or the UK or the USA then we are at the low benchmark barrow. The problem with immigration is this.  It is the same with "international students". The people wanting to come to New Zealand are not the best of the best. Disagree? I will pose these questions. To get my Hong Kong Permanent Residency after seven years living there I had to prove I had enough cash to support myself, that I would not bring over reliant relatives and bludgers off my visa and I would
