    Has anyone noticed that Mr And Mrs Hosking talk at a hundred miles an hour.They both sound like a speeded up movie.Today I decided it was annoying enough to change to radio live, then I went back to listen to Mr Hoskins daily rant,then im out of there.

    Here we go again. Indian dairy owners attacked with axes, knives and I forget the rest. Usual MO..smokes, money and Polynesian. One owner had bandaged arms from cuts. Another owners wife received a good beating.

    In one incident, if the owner had be armed he would easily have taken out two offenders. News items could have be shown gurneys removing bodies while wailing whanau gather outside..to blame the dairy owner.

    But no, arming dairy owners. What the hell!! We don’t do that in Aotearoa. We prefer our citizens to be maimed or killed.

    Question: Will the government buckle and stop cigarette price increases?

      Do you see the solution as having people in dairies armed and for the government to make cigarettes very cheap?

      • Corky

         /  March 19, 2018

        ”Do you see the solution as having people in dairies armed? ”

        No, this is a societal problem. Having dairy owners voluntarily armed gives those who want to protect themselves and loved ones a fighting chance. It’s purely about self defence – the right of a sentient being to protect its existence.

        ‘ The government to make cigarettes very cheap? ”

        Yes.That would be a good step. We can’t look at this problem through middle-class eyes.
        For example, I was outside a Hauora Pregnancy Clinic the other day. There was a group of women, some who looked pregnant, smoking.

        Smoking is a perk for the lower classes. It makes their sometimes miserable existence just that bit better. Provided the government is still raking in money to pay for their health care, we should butt out.

        • Kitty Catkin

           /  March 19, 2018

          You have an odd idea of a perk, if you think that a lethal product that causes heart attacks, strokes, emphysema, cancer and other diseases is one. Smoking pregnant women are much more likely to have sickly, underweight babies whose healthcare is paid for by the taxpayer.

          Even if the tobacco tax covered the cost of smokers’ treatment. it makes no sense to continue the cycle of people smoking and having these conditions. The cost in loss of productivity alone is enormous, with smokers taking far more time off than non-smokers.

          A smoker who bunks off for 10 minutes a day to sneak a cigarette is having the equivalent of more than an extra week off a year. 50 minutes a week x 48 weeks = 2400 minutes = 40 hours.

            What a true halfwit you are.

            Just one example:

            ‘You have an odd idea of a perk, if you think that a lethal product that causes heart attacks, strokes, emphysema, cancer and other diseases is one. ”

            Do you think the working class ( smoking class, the poor, socially deprived)
            give a fuck what you and I think? If they didn’t think smoking was a perk- a ‘feel good” past time- guess what? – they wouldn’t smoke.

              Just a small point about that last one, Corky.
              Past time is history.
              You probably meant to say pastime?
              “noun
              an activity that someone does regularly for enjoyment rather than work; a hobby.
              “his favourite pastimes were shooting and golf” “

            • Corky

               /  March 19, 2018

              Perk is short for perquisite, and a perquisite is something that workers have over and above their wages. It’s a bonus, fringe benefit or dividend. What on earth do YOU think that a perk is ? Nobody has smoking for a perk nowadays, although they might have many decades ago !

              People may like it, but that doesn’t make it a perk. Do buy yourself a good dictionary, it would stop you making an idiot of yourself when you don’t know what a word means.

            • Corky

               /  March 19, 2018

              Oh,dear. Such a literalist. Such a spinner of semantics. The average person knows what a ‘perk’ is. So, up and above their benefit. A benefit that should be going on essentials. Stop googling. Stop being a prat.

              ”Perk is short for perquisite which means “something additional to regular profit or pay, resulting from one’s position or employment,” In other words, I can’t give you any more money, but I can give you a car.”

            • Kitty Catkin

               /  March 19, 2018

              It’s hardly being a literalist to point out that perk only has one meaning, and that meaning is not pastime (or past time as you meaninglessly had it)

              It’s a well known enough expression for me not to need to google it as you have obviously had to.It would be like googling tax or wages ! I am amazed that you would imagine that anyone else would have to look up perk and not know that it’s short for perquisite.The average person does know what a perk it, and would know that something like smoking can’t possibly be seen as one except by people who are appallingly ignorant like you.

              Even when you find that I was right after you googled this word you are still abusing me for being right about it. Are you peeved that I was familiar with this common expression but you had to look it up ?

              It has nothing to do with benefits or essentials as your rambling nonsense suggests.

              Do find some other insults, those have been repeated too many times and are very stale by now.

      Arming dairy owners will result in just one thing – the same outcome that any other ‘arms race’ results in – more violence!

      The already armed robbers will simply up-the-ante with more firearms and they’ll shoot first …

      To think otherwise is to renounce both reason and plenty of historical evidence from elsewhere in the world … especially your much-worshiped, self-sanctified demi-God ‘Nation’ of Freedom & Bravery, The United States of Armerica … The United States of Anger, Anxiety, Amnesia … Alienation, Abuse and Antipathy …

      That successive NZ governments’ ‘SmokeFree’ tax policies have forged a new tobacco black-market and enlarged the criminal underworld is the height of neoliberal hypocrisy, stupidity and cupidity … The blatant ‘free market’ lie is exposed … PPP Prison cells have got to be filled somehow …

      Especially working as ‘SmokeFree’ does in conjunction with easier Meth availability due to the same successive governments’ cowardly and pathetic preference for targeting victimless crime by hunting down cannabis growers and users … a significant proportion of whom are medicinal …

      Somewhere along the line a government will have to re-evaluate ‘SmokeFree’ or we’re basically fucked … I favour keeping tobacco prices above what’s required to pay for the harm … That criteria could easily be applied to alcohol too … in which case liquor prices will rise and maybe skyrocket … and eventually to a regulated cannabis market … (which should make cannabis relatively cheap!?)

        Yes Alan, which makes me wonder what the REAL desired result is?

        Sure it’s easy to conspiracy theorize but, as you say, the repeated creation of crime by the enactment of unjust, unfair, unreasonable and plain stupid laws leads inevitably to this conclusion …

        Some group or groups in our society want it this way …

        Who would they be I wonder? The poor? Corky’s “lower classes”? The various lower orders of addicts and scumbags?

        The Police/Judiciary/Corrections triumvirate? Liquor?

        … and those groups must be powerful to keep it this way …

        The current ‘war’ on “drugged driving” is a sure-fire giveaway … featured in the latest AA motoring bulletin … despite the ongoing carnage on the roads and throughout society caused by alcohol.

          “The current ‘war’ on “drugged driving””
          They do not test for drugged driving they test for prior use in the last month.
          The war’ on “drugged driving is just another way to wage war on peploe that smoke cannabis.As is work place testing for cannabis use .

          You can get smashed as a loon on p and piss Friday night be measurably unfit to drive or work Monday and still pass a blood test for both.

          One smoke of cannabis two weeks earlier with no measurable affect on present performance can result in a large fine, losing your license and your employment.

            Bank robberies have all but stopped, I was told by someone who, er, should know about these things. The reason is that there is so little cash in them now, thanks to eftpos and ATMs, that bank robbing is considered a mug’s game.

            If cigarettes could be sold in dispensing machines like soft drinks, with the shops having a % which would be the same as their profit on them, that would be one solution. Anyone trying to break into one would soon wish that they hadn’t, as people who have done this with other dispensing machines have done when their last sight on earth was the machine falling on them.

            Therefore, one might deduce, cannabis smokers must represent some ‘energy’ and symbolize some ‘spirit’ in our community – and in humanity – which is threatening to and unwanted by the Secular-Christian Conservative, Corporate-Capitalist Ruling Elites … and that must be suppressed, repressed and oppressed …

            The same ‘Force of Power’ that is making Meth more available than Dope because they somehow dictate policing policy …

        I’ve come across Michael Horowitz before – he’s the DOJ Inspector General who looked at McCabe’s case. He’s a straight shooter and an Obama appointee so it’s likely McCabe did actually do something seriously wrong (we don’t know what because Sessions refuses to release any details). So in the meantime I’m going to refrain from making any conclusions about McCabe’s firing until I see the Inspector General Report that underlies it

        BUT, the timing of the firing, mere hours before McCabe qualified for a pension earned for more than 20 years of otherwise exemplary FBI service, can only be seen as small, vindictive, and mean spirited. The method of dismissal was timed for optimum humiliation and political theatre. The fact that Fox News was chomping at the bit at around 3:30 pm, when this real news didn’t drop until later in the evening, tells you all you need to know about this fuckery.

        Sessions – the proven liar – made this call. He could have followed the advice of the FBI’s OPR and separated McCabe from government service, but a person of any class would either have allowed McCabe to retire or ordered his termination sometime in the coming weeks. Instead, proven-liar Sessions cravenly chose to do trump’s bidding and snatched pension benefits from a career public servant.

        The idea that trump and Sessions combined to fire McCabe for “lack of candor” reeks to heaven of hypocrisy. trump is an incorrigible liar. He lies to everyone, including foreign heads of state, and then brags about the lies. sessions is a man who repeatedly lied in a very substantial way to the Senate about his Russian contacts. His decision to fire McCabe directly violates the promise he made, under oath, to recuse himself from such matters. And even this week other lies he’s told have been exposed by staff at Reuters.

        Sessions is also spineless. I know of no other case where a president publicly campaigned for the firing, humiliation, and financial punishment of a third-tier career public servant. McCabe’s firing demonstrates Sessions’ essential hollowness. Trump is a bully. Sessions lacked the spine to stand up to a bully.

        Most of all Sessions is a fool. trump wants him out because, so long as Sessions is both AG and recused from overseeing Robert Mueller’s investigation, trump can’t stop or cripple the investigation. Therefore, Sessions is a dead man walking.

        Regardless of the merits of the McCabe firing, it (and the related shit storm) may give Rosenstein and Mueller more time to work. It’s not clear they need that much more time to put together the conspiracy and obstruction charges that are sitting right beneath the surface.

    The ancestors of Europeans and Asians split from the so-called “Eurasians” about 30,000 years ago. But the ancestors of the Aborigines split off about 75,000 years ago and made their way through Asia, where they inter-breed with the now extinct Denisovan Neanderthal-like sub-species, which also interbred with ancestors of Papua New Guineans.” [An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia, by M. Rasmussen et al, Science. October 7, 2011]

    Australia split from Papua New Guinea about 11,700 years ago. Aborigines were pretty much genetically isolated from then on, making them the most ancient population outside of Africa. Their closest genetic cousins are thus Papua New Guineans and Southeast Asians, though there is still a genetic chasm between them.
    //
    British psychologist Richard Lynn, in his seminal study of race differences in IQ, Race and Intelligence: An Evolutionary Analysis, brings together all of the available studies on the intelligence of modern Aborigines. They have an average IQ of 64, compared to about 70 for Sub-Saharan Africans, 85 for African Americans and 100 for whites.

    An IQ of below 70, in Western countries, has you classified as mentally retarded. So, the average 18-year-old Aborigine has the mental age of 11.

      I showed that article to a friend. He came out swinging about IQ tests being culturally determined and A’s are “as smart as anyone else being able to survive in those conditions”.
      In other words like a mother defending an adopted child against acusations that he isn’t as bright as the rest of the brood; in other words a humanitarian reaction. But why can’t people handle the truth? Why is it assumed such beliefs lead to mistreatment?

      Richard Lynn (1930–) is a white supremacist British psychologist, eugenicist, and self-described “race realist” who formerly taught at the University of Ulster. A former editor-in-chief of the prominent racist pseudojournal Mankind Quarterly, Lynn has been claiming that genetics is responsible for racial inequality and international wealth inequality for decades. Unlike many other researchers with provocative conclusions about race, Lynn is willing to advocate for high-IQ, “genetically superior” societies closing their borders to keep the low-IQ inferior people out.[1] He is probably best known for his work with Tatu Vanhanen,Wikipedia’s W.svg a political scientist, estimating the average IQ scores of different countries.[2] This work has led him to the conclusion that Sub-Saharan African countries have average IQ scores of below 70, an estimate that has been heavily criticized because of his unsystematic methodology.[3] His work on alleged race differences in intelligence gained prominence when it was cited in the Bell Curve.[4]

      Other shoddy “research” he’s published that has been shot down by other researchers include the following:

      A study claiming to show that men are smarter than women — which was slammed by Nature as “simple, utter hogwash”[5]
      Claiming that psychopathic personality is more common among blacks than whites.[6]
      A study claiming to validate stereotypes about Asians having shorter dicks than whites, and blacks longer dicks than whites. Seriously. Of course, this “study” was based on two highly questionable sources, including a submission-based website that cited multiple nonexistent sources, and misrepresented other sources that actually exist.

        ”Lynn is willing to advocate for high-IQ, “genetically superior” societies closing their borders to keep the low-IQ inferior people out.”

        He may have a point. It’s happening already in circles where high IQs are cherished and
        considered important. For example, there is one society that only admits people with an IQ of 180 or higher. I don’t know who sets the admittance test because you can’t measure an IQ of 180 as far as I’m aware. Who would mark it? Someone with an IQ of 160?.

        What would these beings ponder? If a car is travelling at 100km per hour, and a fly inside the car is flying around. Is the fly travelling faster than the car, when both are already travelling at the terminal velocity of earth?

              Once you get past about 140 IQ becomes difficult to measure accurately.

              There are other metrics that measure facets of the human condition.

              Temper. Temper. I’ve met many people over the years who can’t take their own medicine. You would be the worst. Too much screen time . Get out more. I’m doing that tomorrow.

              Me too. You’re one of them. So stop whining, it’s embarrassing being seen having to point these things out to you. But somebody has to. Otherwise you’ll look like a prat. That’s no bloody use is it? How can you get away with calling people prats if you’re a prat? Think about it. Don’t get back to me. Have a nice day tomorrow.

          Gezza, you’re talking to someone who says ‘this stuff is only academic to (Lurchy and) I.’ so doesn’t know the difference between ‘I’ and ‘me’.

            Probably quite low on the left of the bell curve. I just politely ask questions & try to provide helpful advice sometimes & look at the thanks I get. 😕

              Probably not even on the bell curve. I was pleased to see where I come on the scale (we had IQ tests at school, and I remember mine) I’ll just say that I am above Mensa, if that scale is right.

              It gets complected.
              IQ is not standard across all tests and across time for an individual.
              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IQ_classification

              Think of a person with an average IQ .
              Half of the population are dumber than that.

        ”The Australian Aborigine experience evidences this as much and possibly more than many other indigenous peoples.”

        They certainty aren’t doing their cause any good. While much can be blamed on Whitey. The fact is many AA are not capable of living in modern society. They belong to a different age.
        For example, it’s not uncommon for an Aborigine to go ‘walkabout’ from his job and be completely incredulous when he’s sacked for being gone three weeks without notifying his boss.

            You are deflecting. Whitey does not rely on AA. Whitey cannot not belong to a society they created.

            “Maybe a healthy child is one who resists school and standardization; not one who excels at it”

            You and Gordon Dreydon would get on. And you may have a point. The thing is you must be able to interact with modern society no matter your intellectual take on said society. If a child cannot do that..they are not healthy.

              So the homeless, destitute and disaffected Whitey’s still “belong”?
