Open Forum – Thursday

15 February 2018


This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts.

Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts.Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria.

Free speech is an important principle here but some people who might pose a risk to the site will have to keep going through moderation due to abuses by a small number of malicious people.

    Has anyone read that bizarre interview or whatever it was in which Trump says that his personal Vietnam was to avoid an STD while he slept around and ran the risk of catching something from the ‘landmines’ of women’s genitalia ? This really does seem to fit the idea of misogyny as well as nuttiness. It’s very disturbing, I think.

      This isn’t fake news, although I bet that he’d like to deny saying it. But as there is a video of him saying that he was a great and brave soldier for avoiding catching anything from these vaginal landmines, he can’t. One must wonder what the Vietnam veterans think.
