Kiwis as mushrooms

(kept in the dark and fed on horsecrap.) These items are Stuff “news” just this morning. The NZ Herald is just as bad. There are NO countervailing viewpoints offered. How can people who consume this drivel possibly claim to be informed?

‘Is Trump still sane?’: In wake of tell-all book, Europe openly debates US president’s fitness’
‘How did we go from dry to damp in just days? This atmospheric whiplash may be a taste of things to come. ‘
‘Is Trump still sane?’
‘Take our climate change quiz’
‘Climate change is set to send Kiwis’ insurance costs soaring. Some may not be able to get insurance because of its impact’

    Like most “news” it’s 180* from the truth-

    Yes,disaster costs are going up.but only because of population density and inflation.

    • Robertv says:

      That’s the biggest problem. They print the dollar into worthlessness. Abolish the unconstitutional (not) federal reserve. The biggest cancer for any economy.

      • How bout we go back to a gold or silver standard. Where every dollar represents a certain amount of gold or silver. Dollar came from thaler which means one ounce of silver.

    Repeat the like and keep on repeating it, eventually the lie becomes the truth. The inmates take over the asylum and eventually there will be no one left capable of doing anything. God help us all.

    …kept in the dark and fed on horsecrap [and then after becoming too old, plowed under].

    You don’t want to forget that KG. They won’t.

  4. Ronbo says:

    …excuse me, but is the Internet censored in New Zealand? – are Kiwi Blogs banned?

    If the answer to these questions is “No!”- and judging by the lively debates here from all stars like KG – I’d say the only New Zealanders in the dark are those too lazy to switch on their PC and surf the World Wide Web for real news.

    The facts are that yellow rags like the New Zealand Herald are so YESTERDAY – and the only people who believe their mind numb nonsense and propaganda are Leftist fellow travelers of the minority.

    • Ronbo says:

      Speaking of Leftists and their most recent attempt to paint Trump as insane – I’d say the real deal is their sanity:

      BTW, the “crazy gambit” is right out of the Leftist playbook and was famously tried 30 years ago on Reagan.

      …and failed…epic fail…but crazy people never learn,,,It’s the Left who are INSANE.

        As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man —
        There are only four things certain since Social Progress began: —
        That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
        And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

        And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
        When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
        As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
        The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
        – R Kipling.

        • mawm says:

          Which leads on to the piece from which I plagiarised the above quote. It is worth a read and gives an indication as to why the left has turned up the volume.

          • Ronbo says:

            It’s like I said over ten years ago – there would be bloody civil war between the Left and Right in America and it would break out the day the Right dropped its efforts to appease the Left with honest adult behavior, compromise and dialogue.

            The day the worm turned was the election of Donald Trump on November 8, 2017 – and de facto the Right dropped its nice guy, tolerant, Mr. Buttoned Down Conservative with the briefcase running to work- and put on the combat red MAGA that signaled resistance to Leftist tyranny.

            The Leftist cries today that we on the Right are no longer civil and return hate for hate with the Left. In 2017 Rightists were attacked – and sometimes murdered – by Leftist who didn’t like the new face of the Right. I predict in 2018 the Right in America will start to return fire.

            In the words of Japanese admiral after the attack on Pearl Harbor – “All we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.

            Yes, clearly the people on the Left who started this Second U.S. Civil War know nothing about what happened to the rebels of the 19th century.

            • Ronbo in regards to a comment you made further back, my mother and I don’t agree on Trump’s tax cuts.

              He’s going to have income tax cuts, but he’s also kept spending down, including the environment, and he will raise tariffs.

              Warren G. Harding did the same thing, cut income taxes, but lowered spending and raised tariffs. My arguement is that Trump’s tax cuts are affordable.

              My mother doesn’t agree with me, and so far the articles in the paper support her arguement, they look at the cost of the tax cuts and ignore, his spending cuts and his other tax rises.

    It goes back way further than 30 years ago, when I was very young I remember listening to the radio and there was an international politics discussion. American politics was one of the subjects and it mentioned the fact that the Democrats considered Eisenhower to be senile. It may not have been on the same scale as it is now, but it was there.

    • KG says:

      We’re millimetres away from the old Soviet tactic of simply locking away inconvenient people in psych wards.

      • Ronbo says:

        @KG: Actually the Feds tried that tactic out on me when I was arrested and made a political prisoner. My first port of call in the federal gulag was FCI Butner, NC – where Secret Service lackey psych doctors were put under intense pressure to put me on “medications” that would have destroyed my mind.

        Fortunately, one of the few honest federal judges put a stop to that effort, but I came within 24 hours of being tied down on a hospital bed and being injected with mind destroying drugs.

        Yes, our Secret Service, FBI, NSA and DOJ have learned much from the old Soviet Union and its KGB on how to deal with political people like me who won’t “get their minds right” – Have them arrested on trumped up charges, get them convicted and sent to federal prisons like Butner – Have them declared “insane” lackey psych doctors – and inject them with mind destroying drugs that turn them into easily controlled zombies.

        BTW, this happened over 20 years in 1994 – and I was said, “The USA v. Barbour” was done at least in part to fine tune an Establishment response to pesky resistance figures.

        P.S. Just to set the record straight government wise – In early 2003 I requested the Veterans’ Administration mental health doctors give me an examination. It was agreed – and I was sent to the VA Hospital in Tampa, Florida – and ran like a lab rat thru all the standard psychological tests.

        The bottom line? that I was 100% sane, above average intelligence and very much the argument type. Said one doctor, “The patient does not see the world in terms of grey areas, but only in terms of black and white – right or wrong.”

    • Michael in Nelson says:

      So they want to increase diversity and inclusivity (whatever the hell that is) in employment. That means being able to hire the person most suitable for the job is now illegal? Can an employer be forced to hire a transgender to monitor the ladies toilet block for a superloo? Or how about a visa over-stayer from a third world shithole being employed as a pilot because there isn’t one at the moment?

      God help the pensioners because I seriously doubt the NZ Super payments are going to keep up with the cost of living rise that must accompany a minimum wage rise to over $16/hr.

      • Darin says:

        Oldest trick in the currency manipulator’s handbook-Rasing the minimum wage.
        This will cause inflation and as we know inflation is a tool used to hide debt.

        • Ronbo says:

          It worked in Germany like a charm in 1923 to erase the debt from WW I – the only trouble is hyperinflation that trashed the economy and starved the citizens.

    • Ronbo says:



      Big time.

      I bet New Zealand could pave its street in gold – if only you people would outlaw the Labor Party – and revert to the economic system that made New Zealand great in the first place: Capitalism.
