Trump Hits 3,000 Lies (plus Tweets)

Apologies to start with. Firstly, some of these tweets are getting a bit dated. I began this post yesterday by finding most of the tweets, then I ran out of time to write the homily. I should always do it the other way around. However, it was a few days since I’d checked my Twitter notifications, and there were a few good ones there, and I just kept going. Also, because I didn’t get this done... read more

Trump Should Retain the Iran Nuclear Agreement (JCPOA)

A couple of days ago, Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, did a slick presentation announcing he had proof that Iran was lying when they signed the Iran Nuclear Agreement. (It’s official name is the JCPOA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.) Therefore, his logic went, the deal should be torn up. This comes at the same time as US president Donald Trump is once again telling... read more

NZ’s Pregnant Prime Minister (plus Tweets)

First off I must apologise. (Yes, that’s how we spell it in New Zealand.) I’ve been neglecting my website for a couple of weeks. There has been writing going on, but none of it made it here. Two posts are progressing slowly, and one may actually see the light of day. (Not every post I write makes it to the website; I often decide they’re just not good enough.) I’ve also been doing... read more

A New Prince, God’s Grace, and Blasphemy Laws (plus Tweets)

As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now we have a new royal baby, and it’s a boy. Katherine, Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a son just after 11 am 23 April London time. I can’t let that pass without a mention, if only to piss off the USians! I won’t go into raptures about how cute he is or anything. He’s not a kitten after all! 😺 Most of the details are available via... read more

Israel Folau and Christian Morality

I wasn’t sure what to write about today, then I got The Author’s weekly email. The Author is the brilliant Jesus and Mo cartoonist. His strip this week is about religious morality, and it brought to mind the big news story in New Zealand and Australia at the moment. It began on 9 April when Australian rugby star Israel Folau tweeted that all gays were going to hell. Further, he’s not... read more

The American People DIDN’T Elect Trump (plus Tweets)

You’re probably all wondering where I am given it’s been so long since I put anything on the website. So, I thought I’d do a quick tweets post to get you up-to-date. Everything is the same as usual with me. The problem was I didn’t have a laptop. On Thursday morning while rushing to answer a Skype call from a friend, I sent my laptop flying across the table and onto the floor.... read more

A Miscellany of Stupid (plus Tweets)

I wasn’t planning to do a Tweets Post at the moment. I’m working on a couple of other more substantial posts that are taking a lot of time. However, there are a few things I want to bring to your attention. They’re not Good Things. They’re WTF things. As I’ve said before, I’m (very) slowly doing a post about John Bolton. I think Donald Trump is aware that bringing... read more

Third Month Mania: Bullshit Bracket (Final)

The post I wrote yesterday about Trump’s lies was originally going to be the introduction to today’s post. However, as you saw, it got rather long! So, it became a post on it’s own. Now I’m pretty much out of words to introduce the final of Third Month Mania: Bullshit Bracket. This competition is The Daily Show‘s annual version of March Madness. Last year they gave the... read more

Trump’s Easter Twitter Lies

Tomorrow we’ll have the final of Third Month Mania. The original 64 lies will be down to two items – one from each conferences. Theconferrences are the Donald Trump and the Everyone Else. The two conferences are fitting. Some of the contenders in the competition being pretty big purveyors of bullshit on their own. Personnel at Fox News who made the list come to mind. However, Trump tells so... read more

NZ Police Must Wear Body Cameras (plus Tweets)

I was tweeting a bit a couple of days ago, especially about one of my pet topics – gun safety in the US. As a result I felt the need to do a short post to include a few of those tweets. You’ll have to excuse my solipsism here – there are quite a few of my own tweets in this post. As I said in my last post, the New Zealand Police have killed less than fifty people in the last century. It... read more
