When Tourette’s runs in the family

Caution (here’s no surprise):  language

My Daughter and I have Tourette’s, she does not have it as intense as I, but she is on the same cycle, thus, when it is my tic day, it is also her day for internal pressure build up, she finds herself going nuts, the only solution for all involved is for her to be with me and ‘work’ the energy. Nothing like a nice game of cards!.

Why is it that Tourette’s manifests itself through rude words?  Why not others, like Banana, or Bike, or Plate?

Little does Panama Papers v3.0

What a colossal waste of question time for Labour. They have National ministers on the back foot, none of whom are under the gun. Instead, they are pulling the scab off the Panama Papers and having another blindfolded run at a wall.

Read my lips: there are no votes in this.

Dirty Politics: “Business as usual”


It appears the left had some hope that by kicking Whaleoil to touch, they had destroyed National’s ability to get the dirt out.

I’m guessing that someone in the National Party who wants to contest the Wellington Central electorate has hired Simon Lusk to smear the Nat’s current candidate. Gallery playing along because they forget nothing but they learn nothing.
