New research suggests a single joint of cannabis damages the lungs as much as smoking five cigarettes in one go.

Dad’s Corner on Kiwi Families

Here’s something worth supporting – a parenting website with a link to “Dad’s Corner” right near the top! Although there haven’t been many dads active on their discussion board so far, it could develop into a useful resource.

Utilising our Resources

Sat 21st July 2007:

I have for some time been thinking about a couple of software projects that could help the Men’s Rights Movement. They are: 1) A website that allows you to nominate Advertising, TV Drama, News presentation that is anti-male, or conversely, male-friendly. Visitors to the site could vote for whichever they found most offensive, or most […]

Men’s Rights on the Political Table

Thu 19th July 2007:

I read the following voting strategy recently on an American forum (full text here): “…you take out a target (offending legislator) in the next election by financially backing his opponent. Legislators are like sheep. Their behavior is flock-like and is governed by fear. They are virtually all in it for the status — if you […]

Error of Judgement.

Tue 17th July 2007:

I know little of the Vince Siemer case, but went to the High Court out of curiosity and the possibility that something was not right. If this case is indicative of the operation of our High Court we have a serious problem. The deliberate obstruction of self representation is an oppression of our freedom. In […]

Sun 15th July 2007:

I was listening to Jim Mora’s program on National Radio on Friday afternoon, where he featured guest speakers Michelle Boag, Lianne Dalziel and a third woman whose name I don’t recollect. Dalziel was rather warm about news that had come to her attention recently: apparently women appointed to run large companies statistically show poorer performance […]

Domestic Violence – a man’s side

Thu 12th July 2007:

This was an interesting tale on another MRA site that i couldn’t resist. Once again I will share my story of what happens in the Ventura county jail system: Once arrested you are given a 8 day top (I served 9 and droped community service). During this time the male will be on suicide watch […]
