What to say about this one? The momoment NZ committed it's suicide of sovereignty perhaps?
I think this Prime Minister is certainly having a good crack at it! But is she really in charge?
She doesn't seem to be, almost acting, wearing costumes and under constant foreign influence is a definite sign.
Of late she seized "a good crises" and definitely did "not let it go to waste"... as the saying goes. Gorged herself on it as the world payed attention to her sad little face.
Let's see, a crazy foreigner killed a poor group of foreigners and Jacinda decides to seize New Zealanders' guns... New Zealanders who had nothing to do with it. Ironically the second attack was stopped short because a gun was used to defend against the attacker!
Strange response but here's an explanation on one type of political response to a national crises from tj hessmon a year ago on the website freakeconomics.com
"The "Political" use of the phrase "Never let a good crisis go to waste" is based upon the points made in Saul Alinsky's rules for radicals, page 89, in the section marked communication "in the arena of action, a threat or a crisis becomes almost a precondition to communication"
Taking advantage of any crisis whether real or manufactured is a common tool used by those waging war in antithesis. (often incorrectly referred to as Political purposed). When used in this way, crisis and its extreme amplification as "thinking and acting as a group", is no longer a tactic of protest but instead a tactic of ideological subversion, which is used to bring about totalitarian government control, via Socialism or Communism.
In other words the SAGE lead form the groups along the lines of a crisis subject and use that crisis to force the need for control. if the crisis is allowed to continue (as we observed often during the last presidential administration) people will cry out to government, for relief from the result of the crisis which can lead to property destruction, and even loss of life and limb."
Does that taste like the air we currently breath?
There's lots that can be said about what's happening in this country, so we'll just wait and see what new treats this government has in store for us in future, me thinks it'll be Momo let downs.
Coming Soon... Simon Bridges is bringing in more Toll Roads.
He'll give us just enough information about it so that he can lie convincingly.
It's been a while and a lot has happened since September last year both in the news and at home.
I start the year with look at Len Brown and his continuing ramp up of Auckland Rate payments.
With the Auckland housing marketing on the boil and house values skyrocketing by an average of about $10,000 per month, Len has a sneaky little plan to make a grab for Home owner money based on the increase in the house value. Of course this is just one big excuse to basically reach into the home owners pocket and take some more cash and from this he can buy his wee central city rail link… which no one wants or needs.
The worst things for Aucklanders about this scam is:
1) There's almost no way to avoid it
2) The increase in expense could be up tp 40% depending on where you live
3) The Tax is based on house value and does not take into account that the earnings of the rate payer has not increased.
Len Brown and the Council Gravy Train Riders are showing themselves as arrogant once again.
Lucky we have people we can support such as Penny Bright who is fighting for transparency in Local Council spending.
Good luck for the year.
How's this for a great incentive to give your 2014 vote to National. A proposed $500 Million pool of cash put aside and returned to taxpayers! Tax break time - yeah!
Now that looks like a deliciously sweet little carrot jingling in front of us right?... wrong!
When you break down the numbers it works out that the average NZ wage earner would receive $1.30 back in their hand a day!
Is this supposed to be an election bribe? Pretty feeble attempt if so.
Most Kiwi's have already voiced there opinions saying that this small amount would not make a difference to their day to day living and expenses and this money would be better spent where it is needed, on Education, Health. Basically, this offer is an irresponsible way to waste government funds as the recent surplus was only wafer thin and with NZ's overseas debt swiftly closing in on $100 Billion.
But there's more - it won't happen until 2017 and even then nothing is promised - if the economy isn't rocking in 3 years then this carrot goes straight in the trash.
Nice try National - but we ain't biting.
My partner and I like to share the good news. Your comments are welcome.
