    Another day another white racist female ringing the cops on a young black child,She probably voted Trump and if was living in New Zealand, would be a lemon sucking bitter poster on a nearby rightwing blog.

      Good to see One News run a little piece saying the poster child for detained kids WAS NOT SEPARATED FROM HER PARENTS.

      Trump is a patriot, Lurchy. Look what happens when brown people are let loose and run riot.

          A fair bit of money would be my guess. It has been successful, too.

      I hope I’m reading you wrong, Lurchy.?

      • Gezza

        I suspect Lurch’s line 1 is an original work, and his line 2 is an unattributed quote from a kiwiblog poster. Lack of clarity & punctuation leads to some oddly contradictory posts from Lurch on occasion.

    Horror Of The Day:

    Spontaneous Human Combustion. This has fascinated me for a long time. Experiments with pigs have been carried out to try and replicate this phenomenon, but with limited success in my opinion.

    Warning. Graphic Images.

      Yes this is an oddity that crops up from time to time, although I’m pretty certain most recent cases have been explained as having normal causes & combustion being scientifically explicable.

      The owner has every right to refuse anyone patronage for whatever reason. I hope Republicans take their business elsewhere without causing a fuss. As usual Huckabee is a graceful lady under fire.

      A found this interesting. It tells me the owner is very shallow:

      ”Owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington Post that one of the chefs had called her at home to tell her Sanders was sitting in the tiny restaurant, and that the staff had concerns. Wilkinson then drove over, huddled up with her staff and asked whether they would like Sanders to leave. They said yes.”

      Let’s hope Trumpy doen’t stand for re election. Lurchy. Lets give these dead-beat protesters something to whine about. We have already lost Europe to Muslims. Why not America to liberals and illegal immigrants?

    ”Wow” If it wasn’t for job losses this would be the funniest story of the year. It titillates the senses on so many levels. I would seriously suggest Labour read this story. That bs they spin that minimum wage increases don’t cost jobs is just that, bs.

      I’ll get over you beating me at every turn, Lurchy. Hell, with National taking the reins in 2020, I have everything under control.
