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

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

I’m Worried About War (plus Tweets)

You haven’t heard from me for a few days except in Third Month Mania posts, so I thought I’d check in with a Tweets Post. I’m writing a Proper Post, but it’s not going that well. I’m sick again, so Deep Thought is not something that I’m doing very well. Also, I’ve come across some pretty shocking things that I feel the need to post about. You’ll find them in... read more

Third Month Mania “Bracket of Bullshit”: Round IV

We’re getting near the end now, and the quarter-finals are upon us. There’s only one match up left in each of the four divisions of bullshit. In a couple I found it quite tough to make a choice. The level of bullshit is just so high. There are four days before the semi-final, so you’ve got a bit of time to make your own choices. But, with only four votes to make, it doesn’t take... read more
