‘The Raspberry Pi Foundation has unveiled what is possibly the world’s cheapest and smallest fully-functioning computer, the miniature Raspberry Pi Zero.
At £4 (or $5 abroad), with half a gigabyte of RAM and a 1GHz processor, the Linux-running Zero packs a level of hardware that would until recently be unthinkable at this price, and was found in premium laptops only a decade ago…’
‘UK Immigration Hits Record High AGAIN – 636,000 Entries In 12 Months
..UKIP Leader Nigel Farage told Breitbart London: “These record high figures represent a continuation of the government’s complete failure to control immigration. David Cameron’s “tens of thousands” pledge is now in tatters.’
Just like every other pledge this lying scumbag has made. The smooth piece of shit is conniving in the cultural genocide of a nation. In a just, sane world he’d be swinging by the neck on a public gallows.
UPDATE: Colonel B. Bunny puts it well:
‘..The very best thinking of the elites, the Treason Class, the globalists, and Chesterton’s wooly-headed humanitarians has engineered a catastrophe for all Western people and it is by no means edging into hysteria to state that what is happening meets the legal definition of genocide. The burden is on the proponents of mass, uncontrolled immigration of Muslims and third-world people to Western lands to show how the policies of Western governments are, in fact, not genocidal, as absurd as it is even to raise this point…’
University students in Massachusetts who were upset by an image of a Confederate flag sticker on another student’s laptop were offered counseling services at Framingham State University.
The offer came after the university’s “chief diversity and inclusion officer,” Sean Huddleston, described the display of the small Confederate flag sticker as a “bias incident.”…’ Link

‘Auckland DHB boss’ $60k+ pay rise
Auckland District Health Board chief executive Ailsa Claire’s total pay package increased in a year by more than $60,000, or 10.3 per cent, according to data published today by the State Services Commission.
But the DHB says the real increase is much smaller – “just below 1.5 per cent” – because of changes in the proportion of at-risk/performance pay in her total remuneration in 2014/15 and because she received this part of her pay in the financial year after it was earned…’
I have no problem at all with people in the public sector earning high salaries, provided those salaries are payment for extraordinary talents and hard work. Where is the evidence that these obscene salaries are paid for those things?
A recent article in North and South magazine touched on this, discussing how NZ has become the “Absurdistan” of the South Pacific:
“..And then there are the tired mantras used to justify the eye-watering salaries we pay senior public servants and CEOs.
…how many people really believe that Stuart McCutcheon, for instance, is worth $660,000 a year to run Auckland University? Or that Treasury CEO Gabriel Makhlouf, who advises the government on an economy with a GDP of $US185 billion, is worth an annual salary of $650,000 – when Janet Yellen, the chair of the Federal Reserve, who oversees an economy of US16.8 trillion and is the central banker to the world, gets $US201,700? And how can the CEO of Auckland’s DHB, who is paid $570,000, be worth more than a skilled surgeon?…..”

Starnes on millenials:
‘..We are watching the coming of age for a new generation — a generation of intolerance — a generation that will one day shutdown free speech, a generation that will purge dissenting viewpoints, a generation that will shutter our churches and burn our books.
We are watching the generation that will destroy America.’
And make no mistake, they’ll fall over themselves to wear a uniform and help herd dissidents into cattle cars and FEMA camps…
Colonel B. Bunny:
‘..I wonder if the mental disease that modern liberalism is is a reflection of the realization on the part of millions of progressives (liberals, socialists, and communists) that absolutely everything about progressivism is a lie or a complete failure of the intellect. The reason that attacks on truth tellers are so virulent is precisely because it is intolerable that what one has supported all one’s life is a pathetic fraud and a lie of untold viciousness because of the damage it has inflicted…’
I reckon the Colonel hit the nail on the head there. And that’s why the regressives’ insistence that truth is a malleable construct. It terrifies ’em.
