All the Parents Fault

This article appears in the NZ Herald and attributes blame for the current state of unruly youth to the parents. It can’t go without a mention – whether you can be bothered reading the article is a different story.

Dead Men Walking

Mon 28th August 2017:

Empty shoes March to Wellington 70 % of the shoes are men’s while eight are small ones representating children aged between 10 and 14.

That’s not what it was meant for.

Sun 27th August 2017:

“It broke.” “Yeah. Well, that’s not what is was meant for.” Wrong tool for the job. But a DIY lesson many of us would have learnt. “That will learn ya.” Was an expression I often heard from an old man who was watching the kids around him growing up. What about Feminists trying their hand […]

MILO on the Threat of Silicon Valley

Fri 25th August 2017:

Milo discussing Google: “Some people within that company have such extreme politics that science is off-limits when it comes to talking about the differences between men and women. That’s remarkable.

CYFs more part of the problem than the solution

I have a tale of woe with regards to CYFs (yes I know, not another one) I have been dealing with them for almost 2yrs now and every time they blunder into our path they leave us worse off. My daughter has some complex emotional and mental issues as documented by mental health. The process […]

Justifying the consequence

Mon 21st August 2017:

In two generations the application of Feminist thinking and goals has turned the Western World inside out. Today, the society around us, struggles to bear much resemblance to what many of us are familiar with, and likewise what is familiar to many has little attachment to the history it descended from. It is a confused […]

President Trump Was Accurate About Charlottesville

Thu 17th August 2017:

Trump may have bullshitted the working class in the US to vote for him believing he will care about their welfare rather than his own profit. However, his election was also related to a rejection of the claims of modern ‘social justice’ warriors including feminists, and a desire for free and frank speech that isn’t […]

Broken Families, Fatherlessness, Poor Discipline coming home to roost

National promises boot camps for children who have become serious offenders with long criminal records, and to fine and criminalize parents whose children under 14 years are on the street after midnight. Yeah, creative stuff. So previous governments financially incentivized family demolition and sole parenthood (meaning mainly sole motherhood), then reduced parental authority and options […]

Prostate Cancer? Who cares? They’re Only Men

According to Radio NZ Dunedin patients are waiting for many months, some well over a year, simply to get a biopsy after being referred by GPs for unpleasant symptoms and blood tests indicative of prostate cancer.

The Gods of Leisure and Consumption

Tue 15th August 2017:

Oops, look out, he mentioned the G Word again. But really, com’on, did anyone panic too much when Neil Gaiman, put American Gods on the market?

Dangerous Stuff

We are all too aware of the Feminist bent, in this woman’s magazine. It’s been the new, woman’s day, for a few years now, and a distant cry from the Dominion Post, its news-stand ancestor. When it comes to admissions of age, yes I can remember the news criers on the street corners, “read all […]
