Today’s Daily Blog Watch Round-Up of matters that have attracted the attention, assessments, and articulations of this country’s leading bloggers…
NZ Left Blogosphere
In Lapdogs and Cronyism, blogger Local Bodies has an interesting take on work roles, gender, and sexism, and looks at the appointments of Susan Devoy and Jackie Blue from another perspective. Plus he (?) takes a swipe at rightwing blogger, Ele Ludemann for making silly assumptions.
Check out Bowalley Road’s Chris Trotter, who writes a fascinatingly insightful piece on China’s relationship with “The Anglo Saxon Fist of Five” (no relation to “Fist of The Dragon”, starring the late Bruce Lee) and suggests that we are a ‘testing ground’ of sorts. See, Testing The Anglo-Saxons.
And in Ideologically Impure, we get to the nub of John Key’s outlandish claims of WMDs (Weapons of Mass Distraction) and related foreign espionage shenanigans in #WMDWTF. Does anyone really, really, really believe that foreign spies are targetting us for data on how to build an atomic bomb?? In case anyone is indeed gullible enough to believe this – please get in touch with me. I have shares in the Wellington Harbour Bridge you might be interested in…
Anyhoo. Have at squizz at QoT’s blogpost. It’s simple; to the point; and has more common sense thinking (not the Devoy variety) than John Key will ever have in a lifetime.
Blogpost of the Day
According to Gareth Renowden’s piece Watching the ice melt in The Daily Blog, it’s conclusive, folks,
- The Earth is round
- Plate techtonics is real
- Climate change is happening before our eyes
Do not tell this to climate change sceptics. Some Climate Change Denying Halfwit has to be around to buy my beachfront property in a few years time.
Well done, Gareth. A powerfuul piece. Let’s see Lord Monckton make funny faces at that!
MSM Article of the Day
The Award goes to Andrea Vance for calling Key out on his WMD bogeyman; Where’s the evidence for GCSB law changes?
This is the msm (or bits of it) doing the job they’re paid to do; challenging authority by asking the questions the publiuc want answers to. (Even if 99% of the public are in Dozy Dreamland…)
Read the article. It’ll make your day. Money back guarantee. Maybe.
Thought For The Day
Fool me once,
Shame on You.
Fool me twice,
Shame on me.
