    The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Psychedelic and spot on.

      Ah-Omerica X 3

      We know when you’re sleeping and when you’re awake, and if you’ve been good you need not be afraid.
      It’s best not to question the things that you’re told,
      ’cause we have got everything under con, under control.

      – Just Relax

      And all of the tests that can shake our beliefs,
      And if you don’t like it well you can just leave.
      Think George Washington evolved from an ape,
      Then you should be locked up in the 51st state.

      Ah-Omerica X 1

      As we’re multiplying, the world’s on the brink,
      that’s just what the devil wants you to think.
      Don’t ever stop shoppin’ don’t ever give in,
      If we stop shoppin’, the terrorists win.

      We know when you’re sleeping and when you’re awake,
      and if you’ve been good you need not be afraid.
      It’s best not to question the things that you’re told,
      ’cause we have got everything under con, under control.

      Reading your mail and tapping your phone,
      And if you don’t like it we’ll send in the drones.
      Oh, say can you see, the twilight’s last gleam,
      Land of the free, the home of the naïve.

      Ah-Omerica X 10

    Disgraceful that Stephens Franks was allowed to shout down Jill Ovens, ironically on the subject of workplace harassment.
    Disgraceful that Mora did not stop his vile ranting.

    Of course, the obvious interjection would be Ponytailgate.

    But then Mora is ….
    a) too spineless
    b) too dimwitted
    c) too comfortable
    to challenge the views of the extreme right.

    Morrissey, where are you when I need you?!

    If you bear it ( and without Morrissey’s famed transcripts) here is further proof that RNZ cannot purport to be a serious news channel.

    Ray Columbus passed away today

    Bowie, Prince, Cohen, Columbus, Russell, Vee, Burns, and that’s just the musos – 2016 has been a shit of a year.

  5. One Two 5

    Why not put up some positive headline pictures?

    The continued infatuation with the US election result as if it made a difference, is infantile to say the least

    Let it go, move past the theatre and use the banner space for positive messaging

    Try it out!

    Here’s how some of the main news outlets reacted to Mr Trump’s claims of illegal voting on Twitter:

    New York Times: “President-elect Donald J. Trump said on Sunday that he had fallen short in the popular vote in the general election only because millions of people had voted illegally, leveling the baseless claim as part of a daylong storm of Twitter posts voicing anger about a three-state recount push.”

    Washington Post: Mr Trump was accused of “parroting a widely debunked conspiracy theory” and “suggesting without evidence that millions of people voted illegally”. The newspaper also ran a fact-checking article which concluded: “This is a bogus claim with no documented proof.”

    Fox News: The conservative broadcaster did not draw attention to the baselessness of Mr Trump’s claim until halfway through the fifth paragraph, when it conceded that “the magnate offered no proof of the alleged irregularities”.

    Huffington Post: The online outlet criticised media for reporting his allegations without challenging them: “Too often, news organizations amplify Trump’s assertions in headlines with some variation of “Trump tweets” or Trump claims” or “Trump says” ― whether or not those assertions are true.”

    Methinks the shock win has worn off and anger is setting in…

    Interesting times ahead.

      Why should there be shock and grief that trump won. Around 1/2 the country voted for him thinking he was the best candidate for the job.

      So you think that they would have shock and grief if Hillary won? Do you think they would have anger setting in?

      Would that be reasonable if they did?

      Truth is so many leftie leaning people are so tied up with their own views they seem to have trouble comprehending that enough people actually want him as leader.

      If anger is going to come in I believe it’s against generation snowflake who are so up their own (inset own choice here) thelat they think they know better.
