While there have been reports here of distraught voters calling the police and helplines for assistance in dealing with the trauma of a National/Act government, spare a thought for the millions of Obama supporters around the world who, now victorious, find themselves with no purpose in life…

    Thanks a_y_b,

    A good laugh to end the week.

    Charming. “The walking Dead.” Actually I did have a slightly empty feeling this week now that it is all over.
    But very funny. What will happen to the McCain lot? They pushed and lost!

    ‘Forward, the pink gin Brigade!’
    Was there a she-man dismay’d ?
    Not tho’ the faithful knew
    Some one had blunder’d:
    Theirs not to make reply,
    Theirs not to reason why,
    Theirs but to scream and cry,
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the indoctrinated!

    They were calling because they were worried about their welfare payments. You should recognise that as a reflection of the state of welfare dependency in this country fostered by a socialist government. Anything that helps these people move away from such an immobilising, controling dependency on the Goverment is a good thing.

    For more articles about this google New Zealand pages for “voters call cops”. I won’t link here to avoid getting stuck in moderation.

    FTA: “Most were really worried about what the change of government would mean for their benefit payments.”

    Spot the Libertarian! FR, There are over 4 Million people in NZ. A small percentage of them will, for various reasons, never be able to work. Government (Society) provides a welfare system to take care of such people. Not just “socialist” government, your National government is going to do the same.

    Prediction, by 2011 there will be more people on benefits than there are now.

    “Prediction, by 2011 there will be more people on benefits than there are now”

    I’d say that’s a pretty safe bet r0b, if our modern history’s anything to go by.

    If you are an employer I hope you actively recruit and support employees with disabilities. I know lots of adults with impairments who would love jobs but employers don’t give them a chance. Hence they live on low benefits and anxiety.

    Dear Red States:

    We’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we’re taking the other Blue States with us. In case you aren’t aware, that includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the entire Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.

    To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard.

    You get Ole’ Miss. We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

    Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families. Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we’re going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals.

    With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent of the country’s fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95 percent of America’s quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners) 90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most of the U.S. low-sulphur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

    With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

    Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

    Finally, we’re taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico

    Peace out, Blue States.
