Who is paying for the Boagan’s $2.1 BILLION snatch?

business woman with lots of money

Everyone smart is running a mile from Michelle “The BoaganBoag’s plan to snatch $2.1 billion in Vector shares from Aucklanders and South Aucklanders to give to Lyin’ Len Brown for him to build his trainset.

But one question is still be to explored. Who is paying The Boagan, 60? And who is paying her offsider Cedric “Senile” Allan, 102?

These people don’t do anything for free. The Boagan even got Doug Myers to pay her when she was running for National Party President.

The tipline is running hot with theories. Read more »

A thought about the feral “gamer” that bashed the baby’s skull in

Just to refresh your memory

Bird’s offending occurred on November 1, 2013, after the mother of the then nearly five-week-old baby boy had spent the night caring for her son at their Central Hawke’s Bay home.

She woke Bird about 6.30am and asked him to care for their baby, who was asleep in a bassinet, so she could rest, court documents said.

At some time between 6.30am and 10am, while the baby was in his sole care, Bird caused what a doctor said was “non-accidental trauma and extremely unusual for a five-week-old infant”.

It was also during this period that Bird, who is studying computer science at Eastern Institute of Technology (EIT), began playing the graphic video game The Walking Dead.

The game is described online as a “survival game in the midst of a zombie apocalypse”. Read more »

Abattoir gets all clear on dumping waste in river

In a remarkable decision that runs against what the public wants, a company has been granted a resource consent to discharge waste down a river.

he controversial decision to allow an abattoir to dump their waste in a Christchurch river, is being met with disgust.

ECAN’s independent commissioners have allowed Silver Fern Farms a five year emergency consent – with stringent terms and conditions.

The commissioners say they gave little weight to a petition bearing thousands of signatures against the move, because expert evidence shows the effect would be ‘no more than minor.’

Despite impassioned protests from locals and a lengthy hearing process, they’re now able to dump waste into the Waimakariri River when the Bromley sewage plant’s being fixed.

The appeal process runs until 10th.

A river is a community asset, and it shouldn’t be used by a single company to discharge waste.  That’s what we used to do.  We’re all about cleaning up our waterways and improving the quality of our environment.

One of the people involved in trying to get this consent withdrawn told me some interesting information:   Read more »

Minor Losers of the Year – Steffan Browning

Russel Norman has managed to make the Greens look less looney than they really are, when along comes Steffan Browning who starts saying homeopathy is a potential treatment for Ebola.

Obviously this is not the kind of message that the greens want to have out in public.

They want to keep their really looney policies hidden until they are in government.

So Steffan had a to be spanked, and spanked hard.

“Browning said he did not oppose homeopathy on a personal level.”

The Greens must be wishing they had got Chopper in to be their chief of staff to tell Steffan to harden the f*ck up.

Or that they could send Steffan to West Africa to test homeopathy on Ebola.

Either way it was Steffan Browning who has revealed to swing voters just how looney the Greens people are.

It is just a pity he didn’t do it during the election and then he would have won a winners award for helping destroy the Greens vote.

Conservation is all about killing things

The liberal elites think hunting is evil…because people like me kill things and eat them.

Despite these attitudes, they also agree with tonnes of 1080 being dumped into our forests, lakes and streams…in order to kill things. At least I am eating my kill.

The bottom line though is every=thing I shoot, kill, and eat is introduced and a pest…someone has to do it.

We all need to do our part.

New Yorker has an article about New Zealand and our desire to rid ourselves of these introduced pests.

In the days—perhaps weeks—it had spent in the trap, the stoat had lost most of its fur, so it looked as if it had been flayed. Its exposed skin was the deep, dull purple of a bruise, and it was coated in an oily sheen, like a sausage. Stoat traps are often baited with eggs, and this one contained an empty shell. Kevin Adshead, who had set the trap, poked at the stoat with a screwdriver. It writhed and squirmed, as if attempting to rise from the dead. Then it disgorged a column of maggots.

“Look at those teeth,” Adshead said, pointing with his screwdriver at the decomposing snout.

Adshead, who is sixty-four, lives about an hour north of Auckland. He and his wife, Gill, own a thirty-five-hundred-acre farm, where for many years they raised cows and sheep. About a decade ago, they decided they’d had enough of farming and left to do volunteer work in the Solomon Islands. When they returned, they began to look at the place differently. They noticed that many of the trees on the property, which should have been producing cascades of red flowers around Christmastime, instead were stripped bare. That was the work of brushtail possums. To save the trees, the Adsheads decided to eliminate the possums, a process that involved dosing them with cyanide.  Read more »

Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson shares his views on religion, faith, politics and homosexuality

Willie Robertson appeared on Larry King Now and shared his views on religion, politics and homosexuality…plus gives us some insights into the family business.

One year after “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson was blasted for graphically discussing his controversial views on homosexuality in GQ, Larry King grilled his son Willie on the family’s beliefs.

“We stood by our father. We stood by him as a family again,” Willie Robertson said on “Larry King Now.” “What I want people to know and what we’ve said over and over and over is that we love everybody.”    Read more »
