Remember that crowd "All Lives Matter"? Can't help but think of them when I see a post like this, even though I know it's in the best of intentions. I'm going to start here: Most of all, please listen to women as they speak.
Thanks Weka, very informative as always. Now that you explain it, I see I've noticed it in several places too.
"peaking" I've seen this word used a bit, but I might have missed some of the conversation. Is there a recent connotation or meaning?
MTG! I thought you were being sardonic, but God they would actually do that wouldn't they.
I'd say it was more like he legitimised and celebrated their stupidity as a valid and worthy trait.
I mean would Lab rather accept conf and supp from Nat (and would Nat give it to Lab) to keep the GP's bottom lines out of gov? Yes the Nats have some frightful ideas, but do both major parties hate the GP's bottom lines so much they'd team up against them?...
It might be too risky (as it may turn people off altogether), but point to the betrayals by Labour? Media betrayal: The RNZ-TVNZ merger... no one can possibly vote on climate if they're not informed, and current NZ media is not informative re climate. Much...
If the Greens actually drew some red lines, would Labour accept conf and supp from National to stay in power? They have more in common than GP and Nats.
Totally, I marched against the tour at age 6; I understood it then, pretty much the same as now. Kids understand justice.
Exactly, it's as if 'emissions' are the only concern.
Yeah, I wondered about using subduction zones as waste disposal sites... The crap just goes back into the core and burns away into its elemental parts.... Turns out they work on vastly different time scales than would be useful to us ☹️
Not to mention that it would make us a 'nuclear state', hence a legitimate target. And what is the carbon cost of mining, transporting, storing, removing and disposing of the material, even before the super-long-term waste maintenance?
National MPs defend Luxon over falling popularity: 'I see the man that you don't see' https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/485945/national-mps-defend-luxon-over-falling-popularity-i-see-the-man-that-you-don-t-see (Just posting the source, RNZ)
Shane Reti's comments were absolutely vomitous. He mentioned twice that we needs to see more of Luxon's "parts", twice about Luxon needing to "reveal" more of himself, and a running theme of Reti's close proximity (between, behind, after hours) to Luxon. ...
+100 The fucking useless perverts. As described by their own. Perfect.
Please do. I can't work out what the heck you're on about, if anything. Hard to believe Weka would be undermining the green cause, but like she says, go on and explain.
Pft, you got that right.
What does? Wasting so much carbon for something so decadent? I guess you could look at it that way, but I wouldn't feel too guilty about it.
That is utterly pathetic, so much so that it must be some kind of abuse or corruption. Scared if rw backlash?! WTF, it's info that's needed more more than ever.
It's statistically impossible for everyone to 'get ahead'. That's why the idea of private sufficiency, public luxury is so appealing. We shouldn't be caring about the 'rights' of others to be greedy, when half of us don't even have enough.
Degrowth AND reduce inequality. I like it. Reducing inequality would benefit most of us, so why don't we just say "who cares what the rich think" and get started? Need not greed, as they say.
Where do people who grew up before homosexual law reform, still "remember the war" and whose parents called England "home" get their info from? Radio Rhema? Maybe their votes should be stripped as well. How about immigrants? Maybe those that work in: <...
Holy fuckin moly, is this how unhinged it is? And taken seriously?? And these people demand sympathy? How the heck are we supposed to 'listen to' and 'empathise' with this? It's demented, sick. They're inviting their own destruction. It's Jeremy Clarkson ...
Fair enough, we'll add them to the list of people who profited off the 'good' times, and annex their wealth as well. No issues with that here.
It's so simple; forestry shareholder profits need to be annexed by govt and used for cleanup. How many would disagree with that, and why?
Great! Another good initiative would be to confiscate all "profits" from banks, supermarkets, essential services, simply saying "the money's needed". They did well off the good times, now they can share in the cost of the bad.
Now that deserves a send-up, it could be as good as Planet Key (remember that?)!
Hmm, I was wondering if it was the earth-cooker, as in climate denier!
Worse? Ye gods, not at all. It's living proof of the sexism in NZ society that DeLuxon's still taken the least bit seriously.
I just love Maureen Pugh. She's my pick for the next National leader.
Well, I know it's been said before, but if there's one thing I know about Maureen Pugh...
