Registered and selling drugs at pre-school

The teacher unions and their proxies in parliament, the Green party and the Labour party, all oppose charter schools. The one main issue they have is that there is no requirement for all teachers at charter schools to be registered.

Apparently registration is there to protect the kids.

Yet there isn’t a day that goes by where one registered teacher or another is hauled before the courts or the Teachers Tribunal for a range of offences.

The latest is two registered drug dealing pre-school teachers.

A “one-off” drug deal at a Wanaka preschool has resulted in two teachers having their registrations torn up.

Wanaka early childhood teachers Catherine Ngaire Williamson and Gemma Ward were deregistered by the New Zealand Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal and censured for serious misconduct after Ecstasy changed hands at Oanaka EduCare in the resort town.

In November last year, Ms Williamson took to the preschool three Ecstasy tablets, which were bought by Ms Ward.

Oanaka EduCare owner Sandie Dodds said she felt the right decision was made.

“I don’t think there’s any room for any teacher to have drugs at an early childhood centre,” she said.

ISIS murders 150 women because they refused to “marry” militants

The scumbag Islamic terrorist group ISIS has murdered 150 women who refused to “marry” their fighters.

At least 150 women who refused to marry militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, were executed in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights said.

According to a ministry statement released Tuesday, ISIL militants carried out a number of attacks in Fallujah and buried the victims in mass graves in one of the city’s neighborhoods.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said. “Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats.”    Read more »

Gutless Labour MP drops euthanasia bill because Andrew Little says so

He is quite happy to run one up loose stenographers, but when his leader tells him to drop a bill, he doesn’t even blink.

Iain Lees-Galloway has bowed to orders from his leader to drop the euthanasia bill he picked up from unwanted List MP Maryan Street.

Labour says they don;t want the distraction they’d rather focus on other things.

A bill which would legalise voluntary euthanasia has been dropped by Labour MP Iain Lees-Galloway at the request of his leader Andrew Little.

Mr Lees-Galloway had been canvassing support for his End of Life Choice Bill before deciding whether to return it to the private members’ bill ballot.

But Mr Little confirmed yesterday that he had told Mr Lees-Galloway not to put it in the ballot because it was not an issue Labour should be focused on when it was rebuilding.

“It comes down to priorities at the moment,” Mr Little said. “We are very much focused on … jobs and economic security.

“There are more people affected by weak labour market regulation and weak economic strategy than they are about the right to make explicit choices about how they die.”
The bill would have allowed any adult suffering from a condition likely to cause their death within 12 months to request medical assistance to die.

Mr Little said Labour was still a socially progressive party under his leadership.

“It’s not about avoiding controversy but it’s about choosing the controversies that are best for us at this point in time. That stuff on euthanasia, it isn’t the time for us to be talking about that.”

Political Poll on Sunday

I got a phone call yesterday asking for 8 minutes of my time. Being a helpful person I agreed to it and noted the kind of questions I was being asked.

I soon realised that it must have been paid for by either The Greens or Labour or was one on behalf of both. I was only asked what I thought about two political parties on one question as they didn’t give me any other options. I was asked what I thought about the Greens and then about Labour.

I was also asked about Andrew Little and about John Key. I was given a number of opportunities to say bad things about John Key which I declined to do. I was not asked to expand why I rated Key highly. However, when I rated Andrew Little at zero I was asked why I had scored him so poorly.

I told them because of his Angry Andrew yelling in parliament which is not Leader like behaviour.

Then I was asked about Climate change. I selected the option that it was a natural phenomenon. The next question then wanted to rate how effective the government was at dealing with it. I said there is no problem so why should they be dealing with it? ( of course that point of view was not an option that I could select )

They also had a problem with Sky City and wanted me to select negative options. I pointed out that the questions were rigged and biased as it was not possible to choose a positive response. I was given two negative responses to choose from only, on one question about Sky City.

I really don’t understand why they waste their money on polls if they do not want to obtain credible data from them.

Russell Brand is just the same as Labour, fake & insincere

Russell Brand is a fake, anyone with half a brain can see through his act.

Tim Stanley at The Telegraph sums him up quite well:

Look, Brand isn’t a bad or untalented person. But he’s not the Messiah, either. He condemns the elites and big money but he’s only where he is because TV producers have promoted him to that position. Proof that he enjoys an absurd amount of cultural capital was the fact that this edition of BBC Question Time was followed by an ad for his new documentary about drug rehabilitation on BBC3. And while he claims to be on the side of ordinary people (and, hey, is indeed authentically working-class and from the south east), his schtick goes down best with metropolitan liberals, Green Party activists and students. In fact, Russell Brand epitomises everything that went wrong for the Left. It still romantically sees itself as the voice of the folks but it’s utterly divorced from their concerns and culture. In Kent, we don’t do New Age religion, we don’t do long hair, we don’t do banker bashing and we don’t do one-world-let’s-give-away-free-money stuff. Again, it’s not that we’re all Ukippers. It’s just that we prefer a bit of experience and reason.

Free thinking people and student success terrifies Teacher Unions everywhere

The teacher unions oppose charter schools, they can’t tell you why, just that they don;t work.

The Labour party opposes charter schools, they can’t tel you why, just that they will abolish them.

The Green party opposes charter schools, they can’t tell you why, and they haven’t even visited a single one, but they don’t want them either.

What those three groups are all afraid of is people thinking for themselves and giving people choice.

But everywhere in the world where choice exists charter schools flourish and so do the students.

In November 2003, Eva Moskowitz, then a freshman member of the New York City Council, held explosive public hearings about how union contracts imposed inane work rules on public schools. The city’s political establishment was astonished.

Mosowitz—a former history professor, public school teacher, and self-proclaimed liberal, whose politics up until that point seemed to resemble those of every other Democratic politician in New York—was sacrificing her political career to take on organized labor. Exposing the consequences of teacher union contracts was a direct affront to the United Federation of Teachers (UFT), which wields enormous influence in New York City elections.  Read more »

Hippies couldn’t organise a root in a brothel

No wonder the Green party vote never increases…they couldn’t organise a root in a brothel.

The only two Timaru protesters to stick their heads in the sand against perceived climate change inaction missed each other and ended up protesting at different times and ends of Caroline Bay yesterday.

Green Party Aoraki branch convener Gerrie Ligtenberg and party member Kate Elsen got their wires crossed and protested alone.   Read more »

Kevin Hague’s creepy stalking of Katherine Rich has a logic problem

unnamed

Kevin Hague continues to creepily stalk Katherine Rich but it seems his logic is somewhat flawed.

Quite apart from the fact that there is no pecuniary interest to Katherine Rich personally he is basically saying that if ANYONE who makes a “profit” in any way should be prevented from being on a board…except his health trougher mates.

There is a problem with his logic though as Eye2thelongrun point outs.

Green “healthy food” spokesman Kevin Hague says he has a problem with Food and Grocery CE Katherine Rich’s “conflict of interest” in being a member of the Health Promotion Agency  which, amongst other things, promotes healthy food while at the same time heading an organisation whose members make a profit out of distributing and selling food.

He’s right. He does have a problem.

Like the numerous others who still some 5,000 years on from first ever production, do not understand what a profit is.   Read more »

Kevin Hague plays #dirtypolitics and becomes a stalker

unnamed

Green Taliban MP Kevin Hague just can’t help himself but dive head-first into the pit of #dirtypolitics like some pimp-whore.

Using stolen emails, Kevin Hague has taken it upon himself to be a so-called public health champion in Parliament on behalf of the“voice of the public” Boyd Swinburn aka Boyd Swingeburn.

In the process he’s become an obsessive stalker.   Read more »

Where is that rapidly rising sea level when you need it?

10731217_10203813220825352_1949026856703944688_n

Is it just me or does this hippy/green ‘head in the sand’ thing have a Jonestown massacre look to it?

It is certainly what they would all look like if ISIS ever took control.

Still, there has been no warming for 18 years and global sea ice extent is at long term average – It is weird that Groser is even bothering, but the US has said that whatever NZ is doing is the gold standard.

Meanwhile the hippies and luddites all have their heads buried in the sand…literally.

Hundreds of people across the country have buried their heads in the sand to protest the Government’s “inaction” on climate change.

About 60 people braved the angry skies over Wellington’s Oriental Bay beach to take part in the protest co-organised by the Coal Action Network Aotearoa, Oil Free Wellington, and climate group 350.org.   Read more »
