Sunday soapbox

Sunday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, to muse, amuse or bemuse.

Happy words.  We hope that you are having a great Sunday!

    Robert’s Melon ,mates in Tasmania got their beans in yesterdays state elections.
    Their vote share plunged 40% to around 13% so their are still a bunch of deluded who havn’t figured out Federal Welfare just ended and Tasmania will have to go to work.to pay the grocer.

    That shows why Labour is not as keen on a coalition with the Green Party as the Greens are on being in government.

    Trolls

    Trolling is an Internet slang term used to describe any Internet user behavior that is meant to intentionally anger or frustrate someone else, though not to be confused with cyberbullying a form of online harassment targeting a specific individual or group in a deliberate and hostile manner

    What one can expect when confronting a troll:

    All your carefully picked arguments can easily be ignored.
    Anything you say can and will be used against you.
    Anything you say can be turned into something else.
    Do not argue with trolls – it means that they win.
    The harder you try the harder you will fail.

    Best: Ignore Trolls or ban them

    I wonder how New Zealanders would react if 11 months out from a General Election our National Government was driven out of office by Maori separatists, supported by overseas politicians and money, with National MPs prevented by threats of violence from entering Parliament while a Labour/Green/Maori coalition seized power and in one of their first acts mandated that all official business be carried out in Maori?

    I am disappointed but not surprised that John Key and Murray McCully have issued statements, more or less as dictated by the White House over the Crimeans choosing to go back home to Russia.

    Its empty noise of course the Crimeans have chosen and there is not much John Key or anybody else can do but to fizz at the mouth.

    Its the people in Kharkov, Donetsk and Odessa who are suffering now. 😦
