False rape claim to get lift home from strip show

Filed under: General — Lukenz @ 1:46 pm

Gentlemen and most ladies, Do you ever think there will be a time where society will acknowledge that laying a false rape complaint against a man will be considered equal too if not more than damaging to the man as rape would be?

Men’s Free Health Check Focuses On Prevention
During Men’s Health Week, 10-16 June 2013, New Zealand men are being given the opportunity to take charge of their health by completing a simple What’s Your Score survey and taking a free Men’s Health Pit Stop Check at their local pharmacy.
Research reveals that every three hours one New Zealand man dies of a potentially preventable illness. A routine and regular health check up is all that is needed to take a positive step toward a preventative path. (more…)

Plight of Emotionally Neglected Children in NZ

Emotional neglect is a silent destroyer of lives, many, many lives. Most suffer is silence, sometimes under suicide gravestones, sometimes in psychiatric units doped or electrocuted to silence.

The early damage was done by failure to respond, to smile, to talk back as often as needed by the baby. Doesn’t sound dramatic, but the long term consequences are dramatic, if the connection can be seen at all.

Few want to tell their stories in public. Few understand their own situation and the drivers that caused it, so how could they complain even if they tried?
The most severe and hardest to cure layers of the problem, were laid down before they could talk and well before adult memories start to be laid down.

Yet more child support lunacy!

Filed under: General — Scrap_The_CSA @ 4:59 pm

More than 10,000 parents have been saddled with debts to the Inland Revenue they were powerless to avoid, and one angry solo mum is calling for change.

As well as collecting tax, the IRD administers child support arrangements, which are a financial lifeline to single parents.

But one mother is facing a large debt as the IRD tries to claw back “overpayments” by her former partner – a debt she did nothing to incur and could not have prevented.

According to official figures 10,002 people were in a similar position as of April this year, paying back child support debts totaling $11.5 million.

I am not surprised at yet another example of child tax lunacy.

This type of scenario will be more prevalent with the introduction of the new complex formula.

The promised calculators fail to appear on the IRD website.The IT changes required to implement Dunne’s disaster are driven by date,not quality. Looks like a potential nova pay to me.

One law for all – except Peter Dunne

Filed under: General — Scrap_The_CSA @ 7:16 pm

Those of you who are forced to pay child tax will know the mantra of the tax police, “you have to pay … it’s the law.” I am sure many of you are aware of the harsh measures Mr Dunne’s tax police use to insure you comply with the law.

Today saw NZ First walk out of Parliament over Dunne’s flouting of the legal requirement to have 500 eligible members.

If you pay child tax, you must comply to the law. If your the Minister of Revenue you don’t have to comply with the law . That is hypocrisy at its best.

As Winston Peters put it : “What you’ve got is a Speaker saying I’ll give this man six weeks… to comply or otherwise. That is simply third world banana republic type of decision making and we won’t accept it.”

One law for everyone – except Peter Dunne.

NOTE:- One lone protest?

How often have men protested at events organised by women? About the same number of times as we are ignored! What are they afraid of?
