That country is fucked.
Good post. It is not the only county going the religious nutter way.

Indonesia is banning pre marital sex, Merkins want to ban contraception and gay marriage, Poland and Hungary are going very religious as well.

This has nothing to do with moral standards, it is about isolating people and controlling them.

All the others ignore it because it doesn't affect them, until they find a way to go for them as well.

Classic facism.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

You have to laugh at Trump calling for the termination of their constitution.

Americans are Robots.

It won't go down well with so called purple voters...Trump is certainly burning down the house and the GOP will be left damaged.

Good, they are a party of fascists and white supremacists.

any more news on any of this? i’m in palmy tomorrow so i’ll see if i see anything. pretty strange place to protest so my guess will be either moving on to wellington or possibly even blocking both state highways into/out of wellington to cause chaos.

hopefully not. i really don’t want to have to be sitting in traffic for those retards.
Any sign of them? I heard they were going to Linton army camp to convince the military to overthrow the govt haha

The word is Trump is starting to melt down psychologically. Many who know him have seen this coming.

Noel Casler, who knows him very well, said he is a genuine coward, who when he sees the end coming will leave the country.

Funny thing, that is that is also what a Harvard psychologist, who does not know Trump personally, but knows traits of his psychological condition, said some months ago that is exactly what Trump would do.

I haven't heard what Mary Trump, his niece, thinks, but she has been on the money so far.

She did say revenge will be on his mind. He will hurt people, probably starting with the GOP, which he has done already, so maybe having shafted them so far he may catch his refurbished jet to Saudi Arabia.

My question is do the Feds let him go?

My guess is if they have all the classified information they can get from him they may let him go. However the word is that he still has a lot of information, to sell, so maybe they need to lock him up.

Whatever it is is probably going to unfold in the next couple of months.

You have to ask what sort of country can elect a guy like that as President?

okay so…
free run all the way through.

i really cannot understand why they want to be in p.nth though.
surely they’ll block both routes into wellington tomorrow morning? try to get some attention, otherwise what’s the point?
palmy is just farmers, bogans and rich white folk.
not the greatest audience for whingers i wouldn’t have thought.

maybe i’m wrong?
i can’t tell you how those people minds work.
what i can tell you though is im
glad they didn’t hold me up getting home!

long day of working and me drinking beer in the sun so my wife had already had enough. no way she was going to put up with those eggs tonight.

Our Government would like to follow suit with this


Remind me, who owns SkyNews AU?

However where they are correct 100% is you cannot just suddenly change to organic farming e.g. Sri Lanka

However, typical Murdoch press, they ignore the fact that if we don't go organic as a species we are stuffed.

For example, the world supply of phosphate, arguably even more important to farming than nitrogen, has less reserves on a usage basis than oil.

So we will starve before we run out of oil. I doubt the Saudis care.

In little old clean green New Zealand we wastefully throw it around on pasture and let much of it drain out to sea, polluting the waterways on the way.

Hope not, it was bad enough when Jared from Subway was controlling our sandwiches
Where the fuck is Bruce when you need him.

I was watching super-size me with the kids the other weekend and Jared came on, I had to tell them about the guy who just had to eat sandwiches.

Regenerative farming could be a go, run the animals like they would be in nature. Tight herds constantly moving then secondary animals to help deal with the waste.

There's a very old farming method where you plant your crops or let your herds on to an area for six years and on the seventh year, you let 1/7 of the land restore itself for that year and another 1/7 the next.

Problem is that it's found in the Old Testament of the Bible so there would be a huge amount of people who would be against it just because of its source as it's in the old Mosaic Laws which included things like killing homosexuals and people caught in adultery.

I’d like to see a more humane side to farming in this country. I’m sickened when I drive around in summers and see the animals being cooked alive.

That was standard mixed cropping on the good flat country like Manawatu. Most of that land is townie blocks now. That was more economical than farming. World agriculture is in crisis because of mechanized farming.

Yep tilling is killing the soil we farm from the hoof up. We should be farming from the hoof down.
We should treat our land like solar panels.

The most difficult thing about going organic, is the mind set. Even for those with an open mind who are prepared to give it a go, it is a big ask.
The information wars from the conventional industries drown out a lot of common sense too.

Another issue is the green loonies pushing for full implementation immediately. Most of those idiots have the reasoning capacity of a concussed whitebait.

They are cultivated by the conventional lobby. So ordinary people think all organic growers are fark wits.

To be fair though, if the hole planet went organic tomorrow there would be cannibalism. Just the same if they stopped using oil for transport.
