The Doc would have turned 80 on Wednesday. Good to see that he is still causing dissent and controversy. No cut and paste though, he wasn’t that computer literate. Much missed. 🙁#1704495mommabear70 December 7, 2018 at 8:06 pm
Dear Desi, agreed your dear doctor is much missed here by many. It’s so quiet now.
He will look down and chuckle as we still speak of him.
All the very best to you, your family and great friends for the coming season. 🙂
So sorry about the copy and paste remark. I now recall him saying he copied everything by longhand.#1704502huiatahiMemberMember since: March 22, 2017

“Could this be because they’re from the same ‘team’ as yourselves and you daren’t challenge them?”
Just to be clear (again) while I’m more left than right, I don’t support any particular party.
That would have been a tough day for you,Desi;80 is quite a milestone. Hope you & yours have as good Xmas & New Year as possible. 🙂#1704521mommabear70 December 8, 2018 at 1:22 pm
lilith7, Whether you’re left, right or otherwise is immaterial.
The point I am making (yet again), that you appear to have missed, is if you saw no reason to challenge any of the scores of posts from Drl in which he wrote verbatim, announcements made by MPs or political parties and not once included reference links, why do you insist I include reference links on pieces I post?#1704522mommabear70 December 8, 2018 at 1:30 pm
Paulinem, you too seem to be at sixes and sevens about the crediting issue.
Recently you wrote “Mommabear you obviously got the above from some site/blog etc please tell us where it comes from as sorry I dont believe it came all from your own self!” and “Yeah I also notice in mommabear long winded statement of discontent on todays roads and cycling in Quenstown etc in her post of 1704118. She as usual for her provides no link to her information she puts out”
Yet you contradict yourself as on November 5 you wrote “Mommabear again I remind you this is an OPINION discussion forum re we dont need to provide evidence to our comments”#1704530halcyonMemberMember since: May 4, 2014

Actually mommabear, paulinem is quite correct. Everything posted on these threads is OPINION. Even information that is cut and pasted from the media and other sites. Therefore the only advantage of referencing something is that it can facilitate a search for the original data. The original data allows for evaluation of the findings. And this is necessary because there re many so called scientists, especially in the schools of humanities, who do not subject their research findings to critical evaluation.
Therefore people should continue to express their opinions. We, individuality, have the right to accept or reject what is expressed according to our own knowledge.
I behave therefore I am.

Media Release 07.12.2018
Subject: Call For Govt Not To Sign Migration Compact
Social Credit is calling on the government not to sign the UN sponsored Global Compact on Migration in Morocco in three days time.
It’s time New Zealand stood on its own two feet and demonstrated by its actions that it adheres to values we can be proud of instead of joining a me-two movement promoted by the United Nations that will see us giving up more of our sovereignty over our own decisions.
We once stood proudly and demonstrated our commitment to the rest of the world on anti-nuclear legislation yet we’re now becoming just followers.
New Zealand would be hypocritical to sign a document that requires the signatories to invest in sustainable development in potential migrants own countries so that they can lead peaceful, productive and sustainable lives, when it can’t meet those goals in its own country.
Media Release 07.12.2018
Subject: Wage Claim Disruption Easily Fixed
The government could head off the avalanche of wage claims that will cause significant disruption for the public, and drive up inflation, by scrapping GST and replacing it with a transactions tax.
The wage claims, from anaesthetists, teachers, public servants, aircraft engineers, and others while justified, have the potential to wreck the economy by kick starting inflation and pushing up interest rates.
More private sector employers will likewise be under pressure to raise wages, increasing their costs substantially along with the cost of their products and services.
The cumulative effect will be to drive up interest rates, with the potential to cause hundreds of house mortgage and farm mortgage defaults.
Replacing GST with a transactions tax at less than a quarter of one percent (25 cents in every hundred dollars) on all withdrawals from bank accounts would give workers across the board a substantial increase in purchasing power far greater than they would get from wage rises.
It would generate roughly the same in tax revenue as GST, but with the majority coming from the speculative sector, rather than the productive sector, of the economy.
Media Release 07.12.2018
Subject: Minister’s Door Closed on Waste-to-Energy Plants
Despite attempts for months by experts in waste-to-energy plants to get an appointment to see her, Green’s Associate Environment Minister Eugenie Sage has refused all approaches, claiming WtE plants “don’t fit with the government’s waste reduction plans”.
But the German Federal Environment Agency says that “there are several reasons that the claim that waste incineration is thwarting waste prevention efforts is unsustainable’.
They also say “waste incineration is making a contribution to climate protection and helps save natural resources” in Germany.
Emissions from the new generation plants are negligible, while rubbish dumps generated methane, said to be the worst of greenhouse gases, and CO2.
Ms Sage appears to have a luddite view of new technology in the waste disposal field preferring to see waste buried in the ground leaving the after effects, like the possibility of toxins leaching into waterways, for future generations to deal with.

Paulinem – I support your views on the first 2 press releases as above, and suggest the alternatives:
1. That instead of us being expected to donate or invest our savings or “out of nothing” credit in the countries from where masses of people want to flee or emigrate for whatever reason, we intensify our progress along the Third Way (upwards for all) – and offer our accumulated knowledge and experience on that for them to take notice and results to achieve in the direction of what we have achieved.
2. Instead of “swapping” GST for a transactions tax, retain GST, and replace the complicated (and costly to run) capital gains tax idea with the straightforward (capital) transactions tax proposition, and convert the increased taxation revenue into national development and (retirement) wealth creation, preferably on personal accounts so as to safeguard and strengthen the people’s control over it.#1704587halcyonMemberMember since: May 4, 2014

Labour campaigned on increasing Police numbers by 1000. NZ First went one better and campaigned on raising Police numbers by 1800. Now we are informed that a number of regional Police Stations will only operate during ‘Office Hours’ and will be closed overnight.
This leaves some areas without adequate Police coverage. For some rural communities the nearest Police Officers will be one and a half hours away. So what happens in an emergency? Are those communities just going to be ignored?
We have the Government spending $millions to fund rich kids to go to Uni. We have Shane Jones wandering about the country handing out $millions yet the Government are not willing to keep our communities safe. This is gross incompetency on the part of the Government.
I behave therefore I am.
