Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Further to yesterday’s Daily Review comments:
How did this woman ever get to be a TV and radio host? She is completely off her trolley.
A taste of what is in her latest rant:
She goes on to say:
Note: there were efforts to contact her yesterday but she never responded.
Btw, she is apparently linked to Steve Bannon’s “Counterspin Media”. Says it all.
Dunno. Maybe she’s developed an undiagnosed mental health problem. Seems to refuse to accept there’s plenty of evidence that no kids developed problems at the North Shore vaccination centre on the day she claims.
I understand how some people have come to an anti-vax position & how they & others have concerns about the coercive nature of public health measures. But there are a tiny few who could well be suffering from undiagnosed paranoia or a psychosis of some kind. Conspiracy theorists often seem to have a few of them in their ranks.
I think you got it. Behind the Herald wall today: "The sad spiral of Liz Gunn down the conspiracy rabbit hole:" Damien Venuto
He ends by saying,"… it's also a reminder that you can't escape the frailty of the human condition – even when you've spent years in front of the camera."
I get the 'down the rabbit hole' bit. It brings to mind the other animal adage – 'mad as a cut snake.'
agree Geeza. That is a possibility about Liz Gunn, that she has a form of delusional disorder
You think anyone who has a bad thought about the Labour Party and whatever ex student politician is leading it is a beer short of a six pack.
I’ll agree with you about Liz Gunn though. Where tf do they get off hounding people who want to take a vaccine?As bad as the anti abortion lot parked up across the road from vulnerable women having to make choices so tough they can’t comprehend.
Nope. The anti government line just happened to be part of the context of her rant. Did you read the entire piece? I'm on record here disagreeing with Labour or Labour politicians. Plenty of times over the past 10 years.
I agree with your comparison with the anti-abortion crowd. Think you will find many of the anti-vaxxers are the same crowd who are anti abortion, anti-fluoridation along with several other antis I can't recall at this moment. Its been a hot day.
Usually its not a great sign if you're about to do something in public and there's people parked up across the road protesting it.
Depends. If they're your employees, sure. If they're farmers, who knows. If they're whackos, you're probably ok.
Maui are you against a womens right to choose how to live in their own body?
I'm pro choice if you were wondering. The current situation we find ourselves in, re vaccination is anti choice.
people going to a clinic to vaccinate their kids
women going to a clinic to have an abortion.
Both situations are people trying to access medical care and protestors harassing them. Anti-abortion protests want abortion to stop. I've been assuming that the protests against kids being covid vaccinated has the political aim of stopping children from being vaccinated. This is very different from people protesting mandates or lockdowns.
Makes good TV, though.
Several police districts are planning to resume aerial search operations for cannabis, a year after top brass scrapped the annual eradication operation at a national level.
“This recognises that districts are best placed to make these operational decisions, while continuing to work with the National Organised Crime Group to target both outdoor and indoor commercial cannabis growing.”
Police target large-scale commercial growers who supply gangs which then sell cannabis into communities for profit, the spokeswoman said.
“Drugs are known drivers of crime and revenue streams for organised crime groups. Police’s focus is to reduce the impacts of drug use and organised crime in our communities by stopping this supply.”
Green Party MP Chloe Swarbrick, who advocated for the legalisation of cannabis, told Stuff it was “hugely disappointing” that police had decided to return to the “wasteful and ineffective operations”.
She said outdoor grows tended to be the realm of medicinal cannabis producers, or “green fairies”.
I've been allergic to dumb words since I was a kid so I was biased against the notion that a bobo was something significant & passed over the book 20 years ago. A mistake!
Bugger! I'm one of them. Have long been so. Fortunately I have an escape clause: nobody has ever applied this framing to Aotearoa.
Anyway, Brooks has done a retrospective along the lines of what went wrong…
He thoughtfully points us to several books by other authors examining similar cultural contexts to give heft to his analysis. Quotes one of these here:
RIP Karl Marx? No, he'll be spinning. No rest until someone updates his class system framing & makes it fit for purpose again…
Rapid tests – why, when, and how accurate are they.
The US government is dishing tens of millions out, too.
