When he isn’t making stories up he is out their pimping the stupid.

His latest story is about an oxygen thief who got dudded through her own stupidity…then ran off to Fisher for a story proving how truly dumb she really is.

And WTF is that headline about? Do single women not get scammed? Ir is he saying married women are especially stupid?

pimping the stupid

A woman who fell for an online scam and sent her inheritance overseas says welfare bosses have docked her benefit because of the payments to the stranger she met on the internet.

It has left Aileen Wood, 53, with a $41,000 gulf in her finances and a reduced amount of money each week on which to live.

The 18-month online relationship has left Mrs Wood emotionally and financially devastated.

It has emerged the Ministry of Social Development cut $100 a week from Mrs Wood’s entitlement because it considered the money sent offshore to be a loan. An increasing financial pinch meant the reduced amount was impossible to live on, she said.

She chose to speak out only when cuts to her benefit made it difficult to manage through the week – and as a warning to others lured by promises of online love.

“I’ve been scammed,” she told the New Zealand Herald. “It really has stuffed my life for me. I was grieving. I got caught at the wrong time. If I could catch up with him, I’d kill him.”

Social Liberalism has Polygamy in its sights

Whenever we make a substantial change in our laws people talk about a slippery slope. When abortion was first legalised they said it was a slippery slope and that not only would we end up with abortion on demand but that we would end up having late term abortions. They were right. Now a Social Liberal has pointed out that by winning for Gays the right to be married we have dismantled all the arguments that previously could be used against Polygamy. Fredrik deBoer says that we are now on a slippery slope and society is heading straight for Polygamous marriage.

Iwi want to own the forest, but then want taxpayer to pay for doing the weeding

Iwi want to own and manage the forest and tell us all they are the guardians of Waipoua Forest for us all…but it turns out that they really mean for a price….to help with the weeding.

The Waipoua Forest Trust says the Transport Agency is putting Tane Mahuta and other giant kauri under threat by careless management of the road that runs through the Northland forest.

The conservation trust sent a report to the agency saying endangered plants have been weed-sprayed and rare trees chainsawed, and invasive weeds are running rampant.

The trust’s spokesperson, Keith Stewart, said the agency was ignoring its responsibility to protect the forest, and the iwi in charge of managing the roadside needed to take more care.

He said the agency was being cavalier.

“I think the problem lies with the NZTA [New Zealand Transport Agency], they’re the ones at the end of the day who have the responsibility for that road and for the forest it goes through, the problem that we have at the trust right now is that the response from NZTA has been to completely ignore our complaints, completely ignore them.”

The Transport Agency said it had met trust representatives to try to understand their concerns, and was auditing the management of the forest.

Wogs vote No, they’re screwed now

The dumb Greeks have voted No.

They want to continue on bludging off the rest of Europe while they spend other people’s money.

Greeks have voted overwhelmingly “No” in a historic bailout referendum, partial results show, defying warnings from across Europe that rejecting new austerity terms for fresh financial aid would set their country on a path out of the euro.

With more than half the votes counted, official figures showed 61 per cent of Greeks on course to reject a bailout offer from creditors that was the official issue of the ballot.

The figures showed the Yes vote drew 40.1 per cent. An official projection of the final result is expected this morning (NZT).

Bill’s tax cuts are back. Roll on up for an election spending spree

Bill English is back to talking about tax cuts…just in time for a nice long roll up to the 2017 election.

First up he dismisses talk of a recession.

Falling dairy prices are not as disastrous for the economy as they seem and the country is not heading for a recession, Finance Minister Bill English says.

Mr English told TVNZ’s Q+A this morning that the dairy industry was “probably a smaller part of [the economy] than most people think”.

“I think we’ve got to keep the dairy industry in perspective,” he said.

“It’s about 5 to 6 per cent of the whole economy. It’s only 20 per cent of our exports. The other 80 per cent will be starting to enjoy the benefits of the lower exchange rate, and the lower exchange rate will help cushion the impact on dairy of their lower prices.”

When asked by TVNZ’s Simon Dallow whether he agreed with Steven Bayliss of BNZ that New Zealand had a “recipe” for recession on its hands, with low dairy prices coupled with a potential drought and falling Christchurch house prices, Mr English said he thought the prediction was overstated.   Read more »

Euthanasia the other side of the story

v3i1_23

The slippery slope argument makes some valid points. Once we get permission to kill ourselves when we are terminally ill and in pain aren’t we opening the flood gates to doctors killing people for other reasons? What if I told you that Euthanasia would be used on young, physically healthy people? Believe it or not it is already happening and it makes me realise how the euthanasia debate is not as cut and dry as we all would like it to be.

A newspaper amends its article to stop propagating Ron Mark’s SAS lies

Ron Mark is despised in the armed forces for pretending to have served with the NZSAS.

This blog has opened up that can of worms and through a number of confidential sources we have previously established Mark has been dining out on his fake SAS record without ever taking the opportunity to correct it.

Even now, the NZ First site continues to misrepresent Mark’s true involvement with the NZSAS.  He may have been selected, but he failed to make the grade and never served.

Narcissism can be fatal

Are you prepared to die to get a photograph of yourself?

A young Russian woman has died after a fall from the bridge where she was trying to make a memorable selfie next to the Moscow City financial district, police sources say. Her death is the latest in a rash of fatal and near-fatal selfie incidents.

The woman, a 21-year-old graduate of the Russian State University of Tourism and Services Studies, reportedly wanted to make a selfie in front of one the famous landmarks of the Russian capital, but fell from the bridge while taking the photo.

The incident took place Saturday night next to the Moscow International Business Center, also referred as Moscow City.

“According to preliminary information, the young woman was taking a selfie together with her friends, but couldn’t hold on and fell from the bridge onto the quayside,” a source close to the investigation told TASS news agency.

According to other sources, the reason for girl’s death was a broken fence on the bridge that she leaned on while taking the photo.

Anton Tsvetkov, of the Commission on the Common House on Safety, told Interfax that he will investigate the reasons for the deadly incident.

“What the fence is like that it couldn’t hold a fragile young woman?” he asked.

The rash of recent series strange and deadly incidents involving selfies have hit the headlines as social media users seem to be doing more and more outlandish things so that their photos stand out from the crowd.

It’s natural selection at work.   Let it be.  These people are serving society better if they are no longer part of the gene pool.
