Budding young Tauranga Bureaucrats

I see a couple of impressionable young budding Tauranga bureaucrats spent some time with a couple of our local bureaucrats Tony Ryall and Simon Bridges recently, and I can't help but shake my head and groan as I imagine what nonesense their heads are being filled with.

Whatever you do please do not take the opportunity to be yet another interfering busybody,  imposing your own personal choices and judgement upon others, telling them what to do with their lives, money and property, based on what you think is right or best for them or the community.

By all means take the opportunity to learn what not to do - like say you are against the anti-smaking bill, and then vote "for" it, or say there will be tax cuts and then put up GST etc etc.

By all means take the opportunity to learn about property rights, and the rights of the individual, and the importance of having principles (not that either Mr Bridges or Mr Ryall would know anything about them) upon which to base your political decisions so that you may make consistent, and uncompromised decisions as opposed to personal choices and preferences. 

To look on the bright side, things may have been worse - they could have spent time with Nick Smith - the man with a tongue so forked he could hug a tree with it!

Shame on Judge Chris McGuire

What a disgrace Taupo Judge Chris McGuire is to the law profession, and to every property owner in this country.

McGuire recently convicted a homeowner for pointing a gun at two intruders in his house in the middle of the night - they happened to be police officers.
Homeowner Jerey Graves came home late and used a large statue to smash a double glazed window of his house when he could not find his spare keys.
He got in and went to bed.
Unknown to GRaves his neighbour heard the smashing glass and called the police.
Two unarmed police officers who responded yelled out identifying themselves as police but received no response.
Graves said when he heard a noise he panicked (as you would), and grabbed an un loaded air pistol. He stood at the top of the stairs and pointed it at the figures in the dark

So what if they yelled out - we are police - so would some criminals do the same, and until they had indentified themselves good and proper he should have every right to point a gun at them to protect his life and his property - especially in the middle of the night.

Also, Shame on the police officers for not having the common sense not to take this issue any further.

Don't come to my place uninvited in the middle of the night - I will shoot first and ask questions later - well, I would if I had a gun anyway.

The judge said the homeowner would not have been charged if it was a baseball bat - what a bloody dope he is!

What if he had cracked their skull with the bat? - dead is dead whether its a bat or a gun!

What if it was huge great carving knife or a pointed stick? Would he have been charged then? Why?
This is all we need - judges who do not understand property rights, the non-initiation of force, and the right to protect your life and your property - The law is supposed to be on the side of the goodies, not the baddies.
Shame on Judge Chris McGuire

How to MIlk a Sitting Duck

ah! - Im glad you asked Pip! How to milk a sitting duck.

Well, first off - and as you may have already guessed - this is a process most commonly undertaken by socialists, as they are the ones most likely not to let the moral principles of "not forcing others to comply with their wishes." get in the way of getting a good bucketfull.
Secondly, being able to spot a prime candidate for milking is the next important aspect.

Ratepayers and taxpayers are quite often prime targets, as - due the the use of force, and the consequences of not complying to this barbaric and uncivilised procedure - the suspects are unable to get away, leaving them to either be milked or fined or thrown in jail. (and you thought we lived in a civilised society?)

The milkers are not put off by this travesty as they are doing it for the common good, and we all know that minorities have no rights right!

The product of the milking process is not actually milk, but gravy. The very same gravy that puts the gravy in "gravy train."

Why the confusing name? Well, just like good bureaucrats, they have identified that gravy is a nasty brown colour, often thick and lumpy, and not all that appetising to some, so in true bureaucratic fashion, they have changed the name of it to something that sounds a little less offensive (much like they have with  the word Theft, which they changed to tax, or unbundling the loop.

At present we are in the middle of the sitting duck milking championships, because contenders are popping their heads out of the woodwork left right and centre, demanding to milk ratepayers for libraries, stadiums, speedway, galleries and dog knows what, not to mention still being milked dry to pay for K-Road!

Picking the winners will be a tough job - several of the socialists from the left (Shame Jones, Chris Carter etc spring to mind) or the other left party no doubt, but I can tell you who the losers will be - thats right - the ratepayers aka the sitting ducks

Oh, and by the way Pip - there are, and were  NO references to my choice of government - apart from the sentiments and philosophy aluded to in my letters. I despise the politics of the red party as much as I despise the politics of the BLUE party - which used to be referred to as left and right, but which are now Left and Lefter!
