Some bastard stole my car

Well we had an interesting yesterday. Sometime monday night, some wanker stole our car complete with the pram (stroller for the americans) in it. 33 years and this is the first thing I’ve had stolen, and it and its contents were all insured. So in the bigger scheme of things, its not that bad, but it was hugely annoying.

So whoever nicked it is obviously an utter arsehat. We have a 7 day standdown on the insurance, to see if its found, and then if not, well new car time.

Everyone who voted for this bill is an Arsehat

So today parliament passed a bill setting sept 1 2008 as the deadline for lodging historical Treaty claims. See the article on stuff until they remove it. Where did they get this date from you ask, .. well they pulled it out of their butts.

Lets see if I can follow their logic, lets breach the Treaty again by setting a date when people cant claim against Treaty breaches anymore. Dickheads.

In response to the ludicrous Warrior gene claim

Scientists don’t discover ‘coloniser’ gene

The elusive coloniser gene, which makes Europeans prone to taking over other people’s land and resources hasn’t been discovered. “Nobody’s even looking for it, we’re really not interested,” says Igor Blimey of the Centre for Research on Non-Whites. The gene may explain why Europeans display a tendency to use extreme violence to control other countries. “It’s true that there must be some genetic disposition in Europeans toward imperialism – packing troops into leaky sailing ships and sending the half-way around the worlds to steal other people’s land doesn’t make much sense when you’ve got plenty land of your own. Scientifically speaking, White people are a bunch of dangerous maniacs,” says Blimey.Dick ‘Chalky’ Miller of the group Honkies for Shonky Deals says the gene is a great excuse. “We can’t help ourselves, theft and murder is just part of our biology and we want that recognised in law. “The group is demanding Maori return the axes and blankets colonisers handed over in return for land. Police advise anyone owning land to keep it out of sight when people of European ethnicity are around.

SNAP! Publishing: Scientists don’t discover “coloniser” gene

Absolute Stance

This has been annoying me immensely lately. I have gotten into quite a few arguments with people, particularly to do with the Middle east. Mainly because people seem utterly unable to comprehend that no one is right.
The debate, and it seems a trend on lot of issues, is so utterly polarised, people are so sure their stance is the right one and that there is no possibility of the other side having any valid points.

So you get people who are otherwise rational saying things like I’m 100% behind Israel … anyone who is 100% behind a country is either a moron or delusional.
The only thing im ever 100% sure about is that fanatics and zealots on either side are 100% arsehats

Well this says a lot about the state of Race Relations in NZ

The 2 major parties totally dismiss out of hand
the UN’s report on indigenous issues in New Zealand. You can read the full
Labour called it unbalanced, disapointing and narrow. Gerry Brownlee the
National Party’s spokesman for Maori Affair (which in itself is a complete
joke, its like having Robert Mugabe as spokesman for white farmers in
Zimbabwe) said, “The Government should show this report the respect it
deserves by throwing it straight into the dustbin.”

Not even an admission that at least some of it is right, or that there is
more they can do. No they launch straight into we have the best race
relations in the world. We stole a bunch of land, passed and continue to pass
racist laws, tortured and murdered .. but hey at least we are better than a lot of other countries.

Well that crap doesn’t wash with me.

Do you have to be a grumpy dickhead to drive a bus in Wellington?

Probably not, but it seems high on the list of requirements to get the job.
If you hate people that much dont do a job that involves almost constant
interaction with them. And for christ sakes, let the old people sit down
before you pull out of the stop cutting off traffic.

Spokesman of crappy crap crap

So National in their infinitesimally small amount of wisdom have appointed a Spokesman of Political Correctness Eradication. If they werent such complete tools you would think it was a joke. Ah well, it might be mildly entertaining anyway, still im pretty annoyed a portion of my taxes (albeit tiny) is going towards paying the salaries of these retards.
