Caffeinated Reaction

The press bleats on about climate change. That the Prime Minister of Australia — who returned from his holiday because of the Christmas Bush fires is damned while the socailist Premier of Victoria, who has responsibility for bushfire prevention, remained in China for his break is rank hypocrisy. Our Prime Minister is still partying in […]

This week in reaction.

The inherent tyranny of the Kiwi Left became very apparent this week. One of the people who attended the select committee about gun restrictions had a police raid. During dinner. With a four week old kid in the house. Stuart Nash sold the gun grab as removing guns “designed purely for killing people” from the […]

This week in reaction.

If I don’t watch it, this blog takes over. I have a life, and life is more important. To help me with this, I now program the posting dates of almost everything (including, most days, the lectionary). This also means that things will take a while to get out there. But this is weekly digest […]

Over the Christmas period I left the laptop at home and did what I needed to do on a cellphone or using notepaper. Family was the priority. Yes, there were blog posts on the lectionary, but these could and were scheduled. The press are looking at the decade ahead, but in the meantime Australia is […]

Some predictions.

David Farrar has up his 20 predictions for 2020 — which is worth looking at is it is how the elite think. David was (and probably is) the main pollster used by the National Party in the last couple of elections, when the party got close to a plurality. Not quite, though… which is why […]

On the joys of the commeteriat and administration.

About every second day I have to empty the spam bucket around here. I have bad behaviour and Akismet up and running, and crap still gets through. Some people think that blogs are about the comments, which normally means that they think the blog is about them. Vox Popoli, which has the best set of […]

The week in reactivity.

This week started badly. The activists of the Umma decided to go full jihadi. It got weirder and weirder. A London event was being run to rehabilitate offenders — both the jihadi, one of the two murdered and one of the defenders came from that meeting. The locals stopped the jihadi cold with improvised weapons […]

The weekly reactivity

This week locally has been marred by thunderstorms and hail. A woman in Palmerston is having her oak tree taken down after a lightening strike that (praise God) missed the shed where she was feeding the calves. Locally, we have had alternating days of heavy hail and beautiful fine weather. Spring is late, but here, […]

The usual suspects have links up. Reaction Times is continuously updated, and here. Matt Briggs reports on the move to make veganism mandatory. The woodpile report is here. Adam Piggott’s epistle is here, and he reminds us that the only way to make your links and quotes is to not think about it, but do […]

Sunday 3 November 19

The introduction today is not mine, but is a comment on a film review of the new Joker movie. I have not seen it: the sons have. I avoid Hollywood, and the tendency to sexualize and make everything degenerate is hitting gardening videos. (We like gardening videos, because we are about to plant the summer […]
