Bind and Gag Tauranga Ratepayers so there's no resistance

Here is my reply to a very condescending letter in the BOP Times by Shane Kennedy asking that people do not moan about the Linley Dodd sculptures being erected in Tauranga.

He says that Rates won't fund the statues (apparently that has already been decided). Excellent. The negativity has been addressed, so lets move on to the positives and stay firmly planted there.

He states that the project, which is destined to become one of Taurangas greatest (I agree) is underway, and in good hands with  Creative Tauranga involved (by the way, aren't they a Ratepayer-Funded organisation?)

He says "My message is one of total support for those working hard to make it happen, and a request for the citys serial moaners to leave this one alone.. Dont write about it. Put away your calculator, and for councillors to show a little more courage and participate in making them happen.

Council do not need to be encouraged to rape and pillage ratepayers. They do so at every conceivable opportunity. More through ignorance of property rights, and non-adherence to principles that don’t contravene them, but Shane Kennedys’ letter  cannot be left unchallenged. 

Not only does Shane encourage council to continue their rape and pillage, but recommends ratepayers are bound and gagged to ensure they get away with this uncivilised behaviour!

What kind of society have we fostered when people who should know better can only think of using force and bully tactics on their neighbours to get things they want? The irony is that Kennedy calls for negative measures (force) to achieve a community benefit. Only tyrants and despots use force to try and boost community spirit, and history dictates it doesn’t work!

Hairy McLairy sculptures are a fantastic idea - spoilt only by those who would use the most uncivilised act known to man, upon others. If passionate, community-minded individuals like Shane spent as much effort in positive ways instead of (albeit unwittingly) in immorral ways, such community benefits would be the sweeter. Put my name down for fundraising, but I will fight - like Scarface Claw - immorral acts of force.

These things will be a great community assett. However, it is wrong to achieve them through the immoral act of slavery (force and coercion).

Don't the socialists just HATE it when people put up resistance, or question their demands for council or government to use FORCE on others to deliver to them things they want?
These things may be of benefit to the community, and for the so called "greater good" but they do not see the irony in their demands!

The irony of course being:
They call for negative actions to achieve a positive outcome (which defeats the purpose to me)

They wish to achieve community spirit by acts of force (slavery)

They not only wish to applaud somebody or something that THEY think is worthy, but they wish to force OTHERS to acknowledge that also, regardless of whether they agree or disagree.

Darwin Awards contender from Tauranga

I am sure student Robert Moore is a nice young man, but you can also add a few other adjectives to that description, like stupid, irresponsible, and now Bossy, controlling and dictatorial!

Unless Robert has been on another planet his previous 23 years, he would be aware that anything that alters the state of your mind is not good for you, yet of his own free will he chose (against the manufacturers recommendations) to binge on Kronic.

Doing anything in excess will have an effect on your body - try eating a whole packet of sugar-free lollies that are readilly available from the counter at service stations and see what happens! - Its not pleasant!

My mood changes after I binge on a block of chocolate.

Do not consider talking to my wife before she has had a cigarette in the morning, and my grandmother is a tyrant until she has had a cup of tea.

So now, because of his own irresponsible actions, he wishes to prevent others from enjoying something - lets hope he is not a student of politics.

I do not take recreational drugs.

I do not like their effect on me. Plus as a rule of thumb, I find that you dont get addicted to them if you dont put them in your mouth!

I ask the question: Why does Robert think it is right or acceptable to deny other more responsible people from doing something because you chose not to heed the manufacturers warnings? Because you personally chose to do something to the exteme

If Robert had stuck a knife in the electricity socket (which I'm sure he wouldn't as he would have been warned of the dangers) would he instead be calling for a ban on electricity?

Robert is a product of the poor and untruthful education and demonisation of drugs in this country. All drugs are dangerouse - some more than others. Putting them all in the same category (ie illegal) just encourages abuse.

Personally I think Robert is a contender for the Darwin Awards for not using his brain for the purpose it was designed.

Tauranga Tsunami Sirens

There has been a lot of hand-wringing in Tauranga about the lack of tsunami warning sirens.
An article on the Weekend Sun (link below) prompted me to write this letter.

Where is the warning system to alert us that there are looters and bludgers about? People who pester and hassle the council to get them to force other people to "do" and "pay" for things they want, or find important.

They are more of a threat to our everyday lives and property than any tsunami.

Warning sirens for the coastal area are yet another example of the "What's the Council going to do about it!" syndrome.

Council dont have the monopoly on saving your life! Council won't drown in a tsunami - you will!

If you value your life (and you should - it is your most valuable posession) then its time to stop passing the buck to somebody who loses nothing if you lose your most valuable posession and do something about it - and I dont mean complain to the council.

People in the danger zone should get together, form a committee, do some fundraising and organise something ASAP.

They don't because Council/bureaucrats have taken responsibility for their lives, and personally I wouldn't trust the council/bureaucrat with the life of a hampster, let alone my most valuable posession.

If you wait for the council to "do something about it" (it is "your" life that is in danger remember) you'll be washed out to sea and drown - Try complaining and asking "What's the Council going to do about it"  then!

We have cultivated and encouraged a life of council and government dependancy and it is sickening to observe the looters and bludgers
wringing their hands and complaining. If you were to spend as much energy doing something constructive as you do demanding "What's the Council going to do about it!,"  you would have 100s of the bloody things by now!
