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:

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. If they pass muster they will be released as soon as possible (it can sometimes take hours).

        If man buns are what I think they are, it never occurred to me that some men might get implants to enhance their butt look. Do they really do that? Just like, do some men really put their penises in the anuses of others? And I don’t need Alan’s education re what he thinks some women do. The sky’s the limit and the mind boggles, sadly.

        I agree with you re Mr Bridges. I hope he and PB step down. They’re not playing the team game. I can’t see how they think they’re family friendly.

          A man bun is what it sounds like; a hairdo. They’ve been around for a very long time under that name.

          Butt and buns are Americanisms for bums or arses, but a man bun is hair done in a bun and looks really good on the right man.

          People do have bum lifts, but I have never heard these called man buns.

          Yes, some men do bugger each other. I am amazed that you have never heard of sodomy or ‘man buns’, As far as I am concerned, what consenting adults do is their own business. I don’t have to like it, but I do have to mind my own business.

        Lurchy, neighbour, it’s cowpat – a flat tound deposit of cow dung. That’s second time you’ve called it a cow pad. I think that’s probably either a barn or the concrete floor of a milking shed. Telling you for a friend.

            You’re my good neighbour just down the motorway where it rains more, Lurchy. You might be up in the clouds more often, but I don’t want people thinking you’re an ignoramus. Just trying to help.

              People can think what they want Gezza,its HOW YOU think, shallow people worry about other peoples thoughts and opinions but they are mostly insecure, and usually have a negative outlook

    Don’t you just love the liberal way. So many liberals have forked tongues.

      When I see Mr Bridge’s face I think he looks like a hurting worried little brother.

      Tell you what YNZ, when/if SB loses his leadership, could you all do me a favour and be kind? He’s actually a strong leader. He fights hard and he’s intelligent. He’s just not the right leader for these times of emotional turmoil. He lacks empathy. Could it possibly have something to do with being a pastor’s kid?
      When I watched his mother on media talking about her disappointment re the way Simon had been talking, I thought ‘great’. Then that lady used media to slag off Mr Ross, and I thought, ‘sneaky and upity’.

      Great and Sneaky are not leadership material. Even Mr Ross had more integrity.

          How do you know that he lacks empathy if you don’t know him ?

          Calling his mother sneaky and upity (sic) is judgemental and disrespectful to an older person; very unBiblical !

    Candace Owens slogs it out during a hearing. Even the poor Jewish chap had his time cut short. Thankfully someone gave him 30 seconds of their time. Go bless the American way.

    Worst kept secret – Govt to go with CGT on investment properties only:

    Hopefully that will ensure a one-term Government.

    This Mr Warner is a scientist. It looks like he’s well known. His analysis is thorough. It fits with my narrative for NZ – What do individuals wish to do about Christianity? But don’t let that put you off listening. He says very little like what I’ve been saying.

      A short condensed version.

        In a nutshell –
        Islam is all about Muhammad, a war lord, and a lot of it is about what to do with outsiders.

        Christianity is all about Jesus, the Saviour, and apart from that it is about the golden rule.

        We should be free to state these things, free from censorship, and free from ridicule.

        I used to think that I could visit a mosque. I see now that it would unwise. Islam is about political domination.
