    Re Weapon Expo

    The protesters are uninformed dreamers, it isn’t the nuclear bomb that is going to get us it is the population bomb, and that has already gone off, the only way to reduce future suffering now, is to reduce future humans now. and the most ‘humane’ way to do that is to reduce the number of us being born. But the dreamers and MSM, and daily blogs, do not want to go down that rabbit hole, so we will keep exploding the population until the very end, we face upwards of 10 million deaths per day, as this mass of human flesh is reduced to nothing. 410 PPM CO2 last time meant a 96% die off of all pantry life, It is not a matter of IF it is WHEN, when has started, watch the food supply dwindle over the next 6 months, these protesters will be first up in the coming food riots. Sadly these fools are part of the problem. boycott the maternity wards.

      most of the peoples of the West are not replacing their populations….countries which are overpopulated and continue to overpopulate or have gross imbalance between males over females should be confined to their own environments and countries to face up to their lack of responsibility to this planet Earth

      imo…these patriarchal dominated countries should not be allowed to immigrate to countries which have an ecological balance between humans and environment

      imo…Economics needs to be Ecological as its fundamental axiom… Not Growth as in laissez faire corporate capitalism neoliberalism which only benefits the wealthy (especially the 1%) and exploits the rest of us and our environment and our planet

      imo…Religions such as patriarchal monotheism (eg Catholicism) must be questioned as to what they are doing to the planet through their opposition to women’s rights and women controlling their own fertility

    This road plan for a possible (estimated) $10 Billion dollar “huge viaduct through the Manawatu Gorge” must become a ‘toll road’ as it is expressly needed only for the freight/roading industry not the occasional private car user. We must make commercial users of our roads “user pays”.

  3. Philip Ferguson says:

    The past week marks the 40th and 50th anniversaries of the killings of two of the 20th century’s outstanding socialist figures, Che Guevara (executed without trial in Bolivia on October 9, 1967) and Seamus Costello (assassinated in Dublin on October 5, 1977).

    There is a number of articles about them – and links to some stuff by them – here:

    NOT the mainstream media:

    re- the endless hypocrisy and double standards of the mainstream media and Hollywood stars

    re- pseudo feminism and the pseudo feminists

    …remember the endless speal of attacks on Trump as a “sexist”- “misogynist”, last year for locker-room talk and unsubstantiated attacks on women?

    …this by Democrat Clinton supporters and Hollywood stars and so -called feminists for Clinton… nothing came of them! ( this was repeated endlessly by RNZ)

    …well turns out Trump is positive courtly compared with this GREAT BIG FAT OPEN SECRET of Hollywood sex abuse…and sexual abuse elsewhere by the powerful political elites in USA

    …where was/is the mainstream media on this?!…it has been going on for 30 years !!!

    ( and I include RNZ sycophant ‘news’ which slavishly repeats USA mainstream media…Suzi Ferguson even managed to finish off her belated copied story with a self- satisfied dig against Trump over campaign donations)

    ..These are the REAL questions: USA mainstream media bought by whom ?…Hollywood?…most USA mainstream media is owned by the same people who own Hollywood…)

    ‘Hollywood hypocrisy’

    “Hollywood elites present themselves as champions of virtue and liberal values. The same elites have also found common cause with the left part of the political spectrum. The Harvey Weinstein scandal presents a very different picture – a truly ugly picture. Will Hollywood now face up to its hypocrisy?

    CrossTalking with Rob Taub, Lionel, and Gina Loudon.”

    ….and seems like there is more to come from the swamp…

    ‘Virtue Signaling Ben Affleck ‘Saddened and Angry’ About Weinstein, Immediately Called Out For Molesting Two Actresses’


    ‘Did Bannon Just Take Down Harvey Weinstein?’

    “The biggest open-secret in Hollywood was that Harvey Weinstein was a Grade-A pervert. And his ‘coming out party’ this week is incredibly intriguing. Hollywood is a dirty place…”

    (as one commenter said : “Hillary’s top donors: Saban, Soros, Spielberg, Epstein (Jeffrey the rapist), Weinstein, Katzenberg, Zuckerberg, Silberstein…. looks like the guest list of a Bar Mitzvah…)

    …so where are we up to with Pizzagate? Epsteins hideaway island? the Clinton Foundation? Bill’s secrets?
