Towards online citizens’ radio

Written By: - Date published: 4:31 pm, December 31st, 2013 - 72 comments

What would it take to set up and run one or two regular online progressive radio shows?  Ones to counter the corporate dominance of politics, news and current events in the MSM, and on TV & radio, including on RNZ.

Espiner becomes RNZ Morning Report host and Pagani criticises the Standard

Written By: - Date published: 11:00 am, December 31st, 2013 - 177 comments

So Guyon Espiner is the new Morning Report host and Josie Pagani thinks that commentators on the Standard are being mean to her.  Guyon’s appointment will provide some interest but Josie should reflect on the cause of criticism of her.  Could it be that her beliefs and views are not reflective of the thoughts and views of most progressives and that her use as a representative for these views is failing the need for those views to be represented?

Right Thinking: just another lawbreaking socialist villain

Written By: - Date published: 2:07 pm, December 30th, 2013 - 8 comments

Normally we’d put “ImperatorFish: ” because, well, the post come from that site and from the fertile satirical mind of Scott Yorke. But in this case it is clear that someone else must have written the post. They couldn’t get the sequence of events right and they admitted to an act that a lawyer (such a fine upstanding and moral part of community) would never admit to. Has Scott has been hacked? And why does it sound like actual Cameron Slater writing on one of his better days.

Polity: Regional income stats

Written By: - Date published: 12:00 pm, December 30th, 2013 - 14 comments

The Herald says the regions have rising incomes, but caution against reading anything into it. DPF reads everything into it anyway. But when people with jobs stay in the regions and those without jobs go to where some jobs are – average incomes rise in the provinces. It is what you expect to see when there is a jobless ‘recovery’ like National is paying for with debt.

Poverty denial

Written By: - Date published: 9:58 am, December 30th, 2013 - 230 comments

Here & in the UK: food poverty, increases in queues to foodbanks, in diseases of poverty, a crisis in affordable housing, & struggles & insecurites of the working poor. But poverty denialists blame the poor, smear beneficiaries, & talk of (always-around-the-corner) “brighter futures”.

Polity: Who believes in climate change?

Written By: - Date published: 10:22 pm, December 29th, 2013 - 84 comments

Cool-yet-depressing finding on why some people change their mind on climate change from one day to the next.

It can be summarised by saying Republicans in the US are scientific morons, and many Americans decide based on the previous days weathers.

America is becoming a third world nation

Written By: - Date published: 7:39 am, December 29th, 2013 - 194 comments

It appears that America is becoming rich in name only as more and more of its people in jobs rely on state assistance to make ends meet.  And many of these jobs are in highly profitable industries such as the Banks and Wal Mart where people at the top of those organisations make huge amounts.  And the payments are a drain on the State’s finances and prevent it from funding important things such as asset renewal and education.

Wet Dick and the Perverts (reprise)

Written By: - Date published: 5:04 pm, December 28th, 2013 - 15 comments

If we look at the google impressions and click throughs onto our site, someone could probably write a sociological paper on exactly how many hidden perverts there are that the right wingers in the council are reflecting. I have to say that that I am quite pleased that we had poor click through for the “bevan chaung naked/nude” queries.

Please! Kill bing

Written By: - Date published: 12:59 pm, December 28th, 2013 - 34 comments

Matthew Yglesias at Slate is speculating that Microsoft may kill the bing search engine. His logic is compelling. As the person responsible for running the operations of this site, all I can say is to kill it. It isn’t like anyone uses bing anyway – in fact they appear to actively shut it down even on Internet Explorer. Most importantly for a system operator, you can only describe bing’s search spiders as net vermin (that appear to be modelled on spambots).

John Key’s patchwork ‘job machine’: user pays

John Key’s great idea for job creation – his cycleway project – has produced some benefits, but is a patchwork production.  Some sections will be user pays to fund maintenance.  Meanwhile the job creation benefits have been limited.

Wet Dick and the Perverts

Written By: - Date published: 10:37 am, December 27th, 2013 - 136 comments

It should be the name of a group from a bizarro version of the 1960’s. But no, it is what passes for the governance of the Auckland City Council these days. There is our mayor with his wet dick. Then we have the five perverts who are busy emoting faux outrage whilst quietly forgetting that we elected them to help run a city. Dick Quax, Cameron Brewer, and the handful of other perverts in council can play with that aspect of their lives on their own time.

In 1977 at the height of their notoriety the Sex Pistols put on a Christmas party for the families of striking Huttersfield fire fighters.  Even now that act of kindness by one of the most reviled groups in the history of UK music is remembered fondly.

NRT: National’s New Zealand

Written By: - Date published: 12:05 am, December 25th, 2013 - 16 comments

National’s New Zealand: wage-suppression through one-sided employment law. A jobless “recovery”. Cuts to state housing and to welfare. 265,000 kids in poverty. An indecent society of haves and have-nots.  A government chooses, through welfare, health, education and child-support policies, whether all kids will get a good start in life, or whether their prospects will be blighted by their parents. The present government, a government of, by and for the rich, has chosen to tolerate, even exacerbate poverty, rather than impose on their wealthy supporters.

Auckland in search of democracy

Written By: - Date published: 12:59 pm, December 24th, 2013 - 29 comments

Media beat-ups around personality politics divert from Auckland’s real problems: an undemocratic council structure that panders to corporates, & that does not represent Auckland’s diversity, while doing little to counter the destructive impact of the inequality gap.
