Sack him

Link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=1&ObjectID=10361322

There's no other reasonable cause of action. Whether or not he knew about the leaflet drop, his loose lips caused an innocent woman to be terrorised and forced to leave her home.
The Police cannot be seen to, in any way, condone this vigilante action. It's hard enough to get paedophiles to reintegrate into the community without them and theirs being targeted for ad-hoc justice. When officers fail to adhere to the expected standards of discretion, it calls their impartiality into question. Such questions do nothing good for the reputation of a force presently dogged with controversy.

I'm moved

Well, kinda. My stuff is all in Auckland, but I'm still living at NFA at present. That should change shortly, hopefully &amp;#58;&amp;#41;

Forward this by e-mail. NOW!

My heartfelt appreciation goes out to all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me "forwards" over the past 12 months.

Thank you for making me feel safe, secure, blessed and healthy.

Extra thanks to whoever sent me the email about rat crap in the glue on envelopes - cause I now have to go get a wet towel every time I need to seal an envelope. Also, I scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.
Because of your genuine concern, I no longer drink Coca Cola because I know it can remove toilet stains, which is not exactly an appealing characteristic.
I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone might drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer eat KFC because their "chickens" are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.

I no longer worry about my soul because at last count, I have 363,214 angels looking out for me.

Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl on the internet who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time).

I no longer have any money at all in fact - but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special on-line email program.

Yes, I want to thank you all so much for looking out for me that I will now return the favour!

If you don't send this email to at least 144,000 people in the next 7 minutes, a large pigeon with a wicked case of diarrhoea will land on your head at 5:00 PM (EST) this afternoon.
I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbour's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician.

DO IT NOW OR ELSE.

And have a nice day!

Rodders doesn't want a pay increase?

Link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10360250

I trust that Mr Hide will be refusing to accept his increased pay? After all, he obviously disapproves of the increases, despite the fact that the Government has precisely nothing to do with setting them. As a matter of principle - not that he's very good at displaying principles - he must now reject the increased pay that will be offered to him. He is not required to accept the raise, and this protest puts him into the position of having to put up, or shut up.

Give the little fucker the whole lot

Link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10360098

"maximum penalties of six weeks imprisonment, a $2250 fine and three months disqualification from driving". I think that "(d) All of the above" would be entirely suitable. Punishments are meant to have a deterrent value, and sure as hell spending six weeks inside as well as losing $2250 (plus court costs) ought to make scroats like this think twice.
Ought to, that is. If they're stupid enough to drink that much and then try to drive, they're probably much too stupid to give a fuck about the consequences. Termination is too good for them &amp;#58;&amp;#124;

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos. All thoughts are my own, representing only my thoughts, opinions and positions, unless explicitly otherwise stated.
