Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    elaborate
    i remember “Men watching Goats” (now that was a funny Clooney movie)
    btw,
    the catharsis of Revenge (voluntary or involuntary) appears to be temporary, and clearly blind.
    (to stay in context, “retribution upon the Taliban”, imo)

    “When all the people saw him Walking and praising God, they recognised him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him” Acts 3:9-

      Ok, sorry babe, I’m man without ghosts, It was great film I’ll watch it again.
      U don’t know everything, and that’s cool.
      And it’s not revenge, They are promoting the protection of civilised life.
      If it’s possible, then the Afghan people will have a process to work with when we do leave.
      They volunteer every time, and I bless them for it, they really do care.

    Are you listening to Down the List on Radionz on Sundary mornings? Very good made in NZ skits on our pollies.

    11.05 Down the List
    Where does the real power in New Zealand lie? That’s right, with a bunch of bureaucrats, underlings, officials, and lowly-ranked list MPs that you and I have never heard of. Whether it’s in sport, politics, commerce, education or the arts, the only way to find out what’s really going on in this country is by going … Down the List. Written by Dave Armstrong and produced by Radio New Zealand’s Drama department.

    Today, in an attempt to save money, government departments are cutting staff. But when some of the departing staff turn up as highly-paid consultants, where are the savings? (5′56″)
