Saturday General Debate

I was going to mention something today, but I forgot what it was.  Must have left it with the other 50,000 things I can’t remember.

Welcome to Saturday.  It’s your turn to shine.

    John Armstrong lists Ten ticks for National

    I’ve listed ten crosses for the opposition – where they make it easy for National to maintain their popularity.

    What else is there, both for National and against the Opposition?

    • PlanetOrphan

      I’d add Nationals website actually outlines a socialist agenda, the labour website leaves you in oblivion.
      A reflection of “Reality”?

      • Labour’s website has 502 pictures of David Shearer on the front…cult of personality much?

        • PlanetOrphan

          Exactly, they have adopted a policy based on media one liners.

          • Whafe

            Biggest one liner is: uuuuuummmmmmmmmm

          • PlanetOrphan

            And he second guesses that statement too.

        • cows4me

          The image of the great one must be burnt into the minds of the useful idiots, the mutterings of the great one are but shredded bits of paper lining their hamster cages.

            Destiny church???

          I saw a relatively unknown (in NZ anyway) Minister in Gillards cabinet yesterday for the first time who had just resigned. A bloke called Martin Ferguson, a self-admitted unionist but what charisma! I thought he was very impressive and I don’t know where or why the ALP has been hiding him. He handled the media conference with total aplomb and openly admitted that the ALP was doomed unless they mended their ways. He really knew his stuff about mining and why Gillards carbon tax was an absolute fucken disaster for the industry and the country. He was very Hawke-like in character and just the sort of bloke you could have a few beers and a good argument with.

          • Patrick

            Gillard dominates the public image of her party in the same way Clarke did in NZ – unfortunately for Gillard most people don’t like her, it doesn’t matter what her government does now all voters see is her & they don’t like her. Same as the way Kiwis eventually got turned off by Clarke in the end – just took us way longer, 9 hard years.

          • Bunswalla

            Oh, get a room Gaz.

          • Gazzaw

            Just making the point that he’s a bloke that the Gillard government can ill afford to lose. Only a fool writes off a politician’s worth just because you don’t like their politics.

        • BR

          You can’t have a cult of personality without a personality.

          Bill.

        • Patrick

          Like any good budding dictator he likes to see his own image plastered everywhere.

        • johnbronkhorst

          To look at some similar examples from history (who have their likeness plastered all over the place).
          hitler, stalin, lenin, kim the son father and granddad, castro, sadam hussein, iotola komeini, mao se tung , gadaffi,.
          Funny how they too, all claimed to be men of the people.

        • Rodger T

          Says a lot about the current crop of Labour muppets that they create a cult of personality based on someone without a personality.

      • Pete George

        Shearer doesn’t get it, despite promising he would be different he is worse of the same old. And the same old in caucus are blind to getting it.

        • PlanetOrphan

          It’s the reason I support Cunliffe.

  • Although we could do with a a little more rain, the sun is shining and that’s enough for me for today. Regardless of where you sit in respect of the issues discussed on this blog, I hope everyone has a great weekend.
    Order of priorities for me are Family followed by a good deal of daylight then everything else.

  • johnbronkhorst

    Labour has always been a cult of the blind leading the stupid.

  • dumbshit

    thankfully my princess said yes 40 years ago today, I gingerly showed her todays once upon a time, and a tiny smirk leaked out, hopefully good for a few more years. I’m a very lucky man

    • steve and monique

      Happy Anniversary

    • Gazzaw

      Not so dumb obviously.

    • cows4me

      Happy anniversary, I do hope your princess goes by her maiden name.

    • GregM

      Well done both of you, awesome.

      • dumbshit

        a collective thanks for all the good wishes from the troops!

    So there is a white pride rally in Christchurch.

    “Anti-racism” protesters have shown up, and police are involved.

    Uh, so if a white man says he’s happy being white he’s racist? Little bit confused

    • Hazards001

      Correct! A white man must never be proud of 1) His Race. 2) His Gender 3) His Heterosexuality.
      If you are all of the above you must hang your head in shame not be proud of it.
      Where were you when this was being taught at school?

      • Hazards001

        Q. Whats White tight and ouuuuuuuuuuuta sight?

    • Gayguy

      If you really think that is what White Pride is about then you are amazingly dim.

  • Steve (North Shore)

    Earth Hour. Turn off your lights from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.
    If you believe that shit, turn off your brain as well – it is not being used.
    Personaly I am going to turn some stuff on, and also FART (methane) thereby putting some greenhouse gas into the atmosphere!

    • Rodger T
