Community Spirit

A TV documentary recently stated that the RSA’s around the country were built with fundraising and voluntary labour.

It showed swarms of men painting, building and digging. This willingness to better themselves and their community is what became known as community spirit, the concept of which is now almost extinct - killed off by councillors, bureacrats and those who feel they have a right to other peoples money!

To get things done now, all one has to do is show a “need” and then hassle the council for a share of money that they have taken by force from ratepayers. WOW - how easy! - just think of all the sweat and labour you save! - Sure beats working!

While everyone’s busy defending animal and environmental rights, we the humans, are slowly having ours whittled away bit-at-a-time - albeit inadvertantly - by the do-gooders
Save community spirit NOW, (before it’s completely extinct) All you have to do is stop demanding the COUNCIL (and Government) do things for you or on your behalf.
Remember - council don’t have ANYTHING!
For council to GIVE, they must first TAKE AWAY (which is something they have become pretty good at I may add!) and most of them dont give a MONKEYS how or who they take it from so long as they get their name on the brass plaque

Denying non-taxpayers the right to vote

Just read the following article on NotPC.

This is something I have wondered about myself on many occasions!

How is it that NON ratepayers and NON taxpayers get to vote on how rates and taxes are re-distributed? - Seems quite unjust to me

It 's not widely known, but the 600,000 residents of Washington, D. C. are barred from voting in Federal elections, something a new bill that has just passed through the House seeks to alter. George Reisman is opposed to the bill, and he has a strong expectation that it won 't survive in the Senate. Why is he opposed? The answer is quite simple.

The overwhelming majority of the citizens of Washington, D. C. are employees of the federal government. As such, they are not taxpayers, but rather the recipients of taxes paid by other people. Whatever taxes they nominally pay are merely a deduction from the tax proceeds they have received. All of the income they obtain and keep is from the proceeds of taxation.

Denial of the right to vote to citizens of Washington, D. C., serves in some measure to protect the taxpaying citizens of the United States from the depredations of those who live off their taxes and who would like to tax them still more.
Perhaps denying the citizens of Helengrad the 'right' to vote would perform a similar service here.

Gun Licence - Dog Licence

32 people murdered by a gunman at Virginia Tech.
The gun laws didn't do anything for these people did they? - NO - In fact exactly the opposite! If just 1 of the victims - or anybody else on campus for that matter had been carrying a gun, 31 of those people could still be alive today!

Yesterday, a woman in the Waikato was mauled to death by two dogs!
Were these dogs licenced? - NO!

People who wish to break the law, will do so, regardless of the rules and laws put in place by mindless, knee-jerk reactions by bureaucrats. They always have done, and they always will do.

So long as we give unprincipled clowns the go ahead to make policies based upon their feelings and emotions as opposed to basic, solid principle all we will get is MORE OF THE SAME!
THEREFORE, it is in part YOUR FAULT! -

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the PROBLEM!
Time to start engaging the brain in its key role - that of THINKING if you wish to see a change in results
