Whale Week What Was

682zoomWe started our Saturday by paying our respects to Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., the hard-charging US Army general whose forces smashed the Iraqi army in the 1991 Gulf War.  He died aged 78.  At The Standard 2012 Worst Political Blog Mike Smith is told some home truths about long term grass-roots Labour families heading for the Greens.  A quick vid on how to put out a boat fire the Kiwi way is next, followed by a vote for Best Minister.  The winner, at 52%, is Judith Collins.  The Whale Week That Was summarised all the stories this blog covered in the previous seven days.  A quite active Saturday Debate (for the time of year especially) led a post calling for nominations for Best Political Blog.  Those who see WOBH as any sort of threat to them (and those that don’t too), should take heed of this Malcolm Tucker quote: “marshal all the media forces of Darkness to hound them to an assisted suicide”.  A CNN piece showing Teachers in Utah taking a class on gun use shows some common sense around the gun debate.  A reader has taken yesterday’s US Fiscal Cliff graphic and created one for New Zealand – great work.  As Cameron Slater predicted from the outset, the Aussie Hoax DJs will not face charges.  The NZ Herald continues to amuse – this time a car crashed into a poll.  The blog then introduces us to two sexy taxidermists showing you don’t have to look like a front row forward to deal with dead animals.  And you’d think we’re picking on an incompetent NZ Herald, and you would be right.  This time they have Jesse Ryder beating himself at Eden Park in Wellington.  Then a hilarious story about a Queensland woman who fell into the longdrop and was there for two hours before being discovered by her husband.   Turns out that during the Falklands War the French tried to send missiles to Argentinia behind Margaret Thatcher‘s back.  Commerce first eh?  The last post of the day highlights a report of a man holding up a Countdown Supermarket with a hammer.  Our readers get fired up about the idea of hammer banning.

Piers Mortally Wounded in Jesse Ventura Shootout

Once again Piers Morgan wades in neck deep into a debate he is ill equipped for against an opponent far superior to him in the debate concerning gun control in the United States. In a recent debate with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, Morgan starts sinking deeper over his head debating the place of the Second Amendment in the US constitution. But credit where credit is due: he at least maintained his integrity in this debate, Read more »

Good on ya Jesse

Jesse Ventura Facebook

Politicians are useless bludgers and usually f*ck everything up. Jesse is smart enough to realise this applies to all politicians, including himself and Ron Paul.

We need to start believing in our own personal capacity to change this country and stop hoping someone else will do it for us. The belief that somehow all will be fixed the moment Dr Paul or myself became President is ludicrous and downright dangerous. This is your country. Stop pushing the responsibility to enact change onto public figures or symbols. Stand up and do it yourself. The leader you are truly searching for, the leader who will change your world for the better, is not the one you see on TV but the one you see everyday you look into a mirror. Stop following, start leading. Renounce the slave mentality that has been drilled into you.

Chop Chop for Pork Chop

Chop Chop for Pork ChopNBR won’t publish it but Whaleoil will.(Click for larger version)

I knew this was going to blow up in the bitch’s face so I took the liberty of a screen shot of her blog post labelling Ponsonby local and retail assistant Kwija Kim as Donna Awatere-Huata.

There are two egregious errors on this page. Firstly is Pork Chop’s photo, she hasn’t looked like that forever, to continue to exhibit such blatent photo-manipulation surely must be a breach of the sale of goods act.

The second error is that the photo supplied is purported to be that of convicted fraudster Donna Awatere-Huata but is in actuality Ponsonby local and retail assistant Kwija Kim.

And it isn’t like Pork Chop can claim this was a simple mistake. She/the paper actually phone Awatere-Huata who denied it was her in the first place. But oh no they went right ahead and printed anyway.

I think it is time for a Press Council complaint about Pork Chop. Though you could hardly call her a journalist as she interviews her keyboard all too often. This, though, isn’t a simple case of plagiarism which the Herald pilloried that Irish tart over, it is a bona-fide case of making shit up and it wasn’t even April the First so she can’t use that excuse. making shit up is a sackable offense and one action that the Herald should take in order to maintain some semblence of professional integrity. They sacked John Manukia, they should sack Rachel Glucina.
