Act, Olympics, Israel

The Act Party in New Zealand has a ridiculous and hypocritical policy where they want to limit the amount of tobacco and alcohol gang members buy. Firstly tobacco probably calms gang members, so on its face, not smart! Secondly Act is supposed to be a libertarian party all about liberty and freedom, this policy controls people's lives! But I guess they're not rich, so they don't give a fuck about them. This is the party that objected to the ban of assault rifles. I wonder if they're happy for gang members to have assault rifles but not tobacco.

The Olympics are happening, there's already an outbreak of Covid. This is the least surprising thing ever. Japan is obviously run by complete morons who don't have the sense to vaccinate most of their population before an international event.

The government of Israel has changed, but the government is still horrible to Palestinians. So, there's nothing really to report.

Japan, Trans tasman bubble, USA

The government of Japan is fucking incompetent. Why would you host an international sporting event and not make vaccinations a higher priority.

Meanwhile the trans tasman bubble has proven to be a stupid idea, the government of New Zealand had to back pedal until cases go down in Australia.

The U.S.A. is in another wave, largely due to stupid unvaccinated people Half of Republicans refuse to be vaccinated, because they're cultish idiots. I don't know the solution since you can't force vaccinations. Perhaps they should tie another stimulus check to vaccinations and make exceptions for those with legitimate medical issues which prevent people from getting vaccinations. Problem solved!

US Politics vaccinations

The Republicans and Democrats are negotiating an infrastructure deal. Of course it includes give aways to corporations in terms of public private partnerships and toll roads which will fuck the people. Basically they will build poorly maintained infrastructure and charge people to go on roads. There's another package with more progressive priorities but the Corporate Democrats won't vote for it.

The Corporate Democrats are also preventing a voting rights bill from passing because they won't abolish the Fillbuster. Fuck them.

The only things that will pass in the houses will be corporate shit.

Orange Buffoon is doing rallies again. Let's just continue ignoring him for as long as possible.

Meanwhile in New Zealand, vaccinations are fucking slow and pathetic. We opened the country to another country with slow and pathetic vaccines rollouts and now there's restrictions in Wellington. Why the fuck couldn't we have faster vaccine rollouts if we were going to open the border? This wasn't smart. A better approach would be opening the border between majority vaccinated countries. Not sure about the thought process of doing things any other way. It seems fucking stupid to me.

Palestine, Crypto, Ellen, Diana

Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing corruption charges and failing to form a government decided to stir things up by attacking Palestine. For every Israeli death there's about 20 Palestinian deaths. Israel has oppressed Palestinians for decades. These are the facts. Of course there's some great people in Israel however many keep voting for warmongers. So sorry. I'm sure nationalism and propaganda plays a role. The US plays a role by muzzling the UN, funding Israel's military and selling Israel weapons. There needs to be a two state solution but there's zero chance of it happening due to the US.

I am sick of news about Elon Musk and cryptocurrencies. I just don't care. Bitcoin crashed because Elon said it hurts the environment and said Tesla will stop accepting it. There's zero chance he didn't know about its environmental impact. I suspect he's pumping and dumping. I just don't care. Though he's hurting newbie investors and panic sellers. Elon should fuck off.

Ellen is ending her show. She finds it acceptable to be friends with war criminals and is obviously lying about her not knowing about the toxic work environment of her show. In an interview she blames the allegations on sexism. What a bunch of crap. I hated her show because I found it boring; it turns out she's an awful person.

There's some story about Diana, she's been dead for about two decades. Why do stories about her? Clicks. But really. I don't give a fuck. Sorry. News stories about Diana are irrelevant. Nothing would make me care about her or any of the fucking royals. Why do an investigation about a fucking interview that happened in 1995. So the BBC mistreated Diana in an interview, I guess they should apologize to her. Oh that's right she's dead. What the fuck is the point? This is the exact reason that I started this blog. The media is complete shit and goes on about completely useless garbage. AND ONE MORE THING, ONE OF THE REASONS WHY I DIDN'T WANT TO BE A STAND UP COMEDIAN IS I HATE THE MEDIA AND IT FUCKING SUCKS! I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO FUCKING JOURNALISTS AS PART OF MY CAREER, FUCK THAT!

January 6th, Voter ID, travel bubbles

Can I comment on how sick I am of people mentioning January 6th. Yes it was bad but it did not affect policy. So much air time has gone to this date. Yes people died, but these idiots didn't achieve anything other than getting more people to dislike their party and getting themselves prosecuted. The media needs to stop commentating on that event. It's just getting boring.

The UK government is set to introduce voter ID laws because they're fuckwits and hate poor people voting. OK so maybe that's not the official reason, but it's also true. Voter fraud isn't a problem in the UK, or Georgia, or Florida. There was like one case in a recent local election in the UK. Voter ID laws are designed to stop minority groups, college/university students, and the poor from voting. Anybody telling you otherwise is either lying or stupid. The UK is already a fairly undemocratic system, this will make it worse.

In New Zealand a bubble has opened up with Australia. My question is many Asian countries have beaten Covid, why don't we have a bubble with them too? The government should talk to them. We need the tourist dollars. If they're really Covid free we'd be stupid not to do this.

Prince Philip, Afghanistan, Capital gains, Puerto Rico, States

Prince Philip died. He was racist so no big loss. Most of the people saying that they are sad have not even met him or have only met him once. People need to get a grip. He was really old and was in hospital. This should not be a surprise. At least the media will not bang on about it for 7 years like it did with fucking Diana.this was just traumatizing, I wasn't sure why the media was covering a woman so much. It's probably the reason why I can't stand the royal family. Apparently the media was covering the death of Prince Philip and ratings dropped. I do feel vindicated.

Joe Biden has decided to leave Afghanistan. I will believe it when I see it.If he follows through then good but the military industrial complex is powerful. If the U.S.A. gets out it'd probably be replaced by another needless conflict. Yes I am the eternal cynic!

Investors are freaking out over a potential 43% tax on capital gains, they should relax. People like Joe Manchin wouldn't allow such a rate. A slight increase could happen.

Orange Buffoon is a fuckwit and refused to release money to Puerto Rico because the politicians said mean things about him. Joe Biden has now corrected this injustice.

There's a debate regarding DC statehood. It's kind of ridiculous that the capital of the US isn't a state. Puerto Rico should be a state too. Apparently they historically only make new states when they contain white people. Hopefully this changes.

Shootings, Royal reactions

Two shootings in the U.S. happened. There's not much to say. Idiot Democrats won't nuke the Fillbuster, any bills have little chance of passing. I have previously spoken about gun control on this blog. I really don't see the point of doing that again. The first victims were Asians. I want to clarify even though I occasionally criticize the government of China, my criticisms are not directed to Chinese people in general. In fact I welcome immigration. That clarification was probably pointness but eh I could talk about gun control but that's not happening. Republicans want to talk about mental health, but have no intention of funding it, that's kind of pointless too. Next they'll talk about video games. They'll talk about anything other than guns, because gun manufacturers fund their campaigns. Meanwhile I'm blaming George W Bush, he let the assault weapons ban expire, seriously fuck that guy. Speaking of mental health Meghan Markle said that she had suicidal thoughts. You had talk back hosts calling her a "hussy". Get a grip. Sounds like people hate her free speech. I wonder if they would like a safe space from people insulting the royal family. Seriously, some reactions, I just don't understand. WHY DO YOU CARE SO MUCH ABOUT PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW YOU EXIST. WHY? Fuck this, let's become a republic. By the way you're also stupid if you think Labour has any intention of converting us to one. I would love it to happen but unfortunately for some strange reason more than half the country still loves the royals and I expect quite a few Labour MPs do too.

Cancel culture and royals

Cancel culture is not an actual problem. May I suggest that pandemics, climate change and rising inequality are bigger issues? If you go on about cancel culture (which shouldn't be confused with going on about people who complain about cancel culture) you're being distracted. I admit that I posted a few of those nonsense stories on facebook recently but in my defense half the time I said that I didn't actually care about the stories, I was more proposing alternatives to the companys' actions. I don't care about Mr Potato Head or Dr Suss. Occasionally companies do make bad decisions. So an episode of Faulty Towers isn't available on a streaming platform, get it on DVD. (they ended up with just a disclaimer on the episode) Do these things really affect people's lives? Most of the people affected by cancel culture are rich and probably did some horrible thing. I should care about them because? Seriously, I'm asking. Rosanne is a different case, I think that she should have been offered mental health help and a second chance once treatment was progressing. Ultimately I don't care about her. I only care about strangers going viral and losing their job. If people are not public figures, leave them alone. I cannot recall any other case of cancel culture that's worth caring about. Many people complaining about cancel culture really don't know what it is. They label everything as cancel culture. They say criticizing celebrities is cancel culture, while claiming to be in favor of free speech. What the fuck? Impeaching Orange Buffoon was apparently cancelling the president. I'd have more time for people who complain about cancel culture if most weren't complete idiots.

Harry and Meghan did an interview saying that the royals are horrible and racist, this may be a simplified version because I don't care enough to watch it. I don't give a fuck about the royal family. It was built on slavery and incest. The idea of an unelected leader is absurd. I have no time for tradition or traditionalists. Abolish the monarchy! The accusations that they're racist are not surprising. Since everyone is hating on Harry and Meghan because they said mean things about their family, I will now like them. If they pissed of the rest of their imbred family that's great with me. Insane that people care so much about a wealthy family who they have never talked to. Get a grip. Perhaps liking them is too strong, but they're my favourite royals. the equivalent of having a favourite infectious disease. The only thing more absurd than having an unelected head of state is having an unelected head of state that lives in another country. Do people not like New Zealand enough to be independent? Seriously! It's not about the UK, their citizens are fine. I just don't see any logical reason why we need their fucking royal family. We're not living in medievil times. Heads of states should be elected. For people who call Meghan ungrateful. Yeah, things were so great for her that she moved to another country. How fucking stupid are you? I don't care about Meghan but the idea that you need to defend the royal family is batshit, just batshit!

Auckland, Texas, Iran, Senate

Auckland New Zealand is in lock down again. The government is too soft, we need to ankle bracket the fuckers so they can't spread the fucking virus. Oh you disagree? Is burdening 1 million people a better solution? You're an idiot if you think this. People are hopeless!

People of Texas lost power because their energy companies are deregulated and disconnected from the rest of the country. Republicans tried to blame windmills even though only 8% of the power comes from them. They also tried to blame the Green New Deal even though it hasn't been implemented yet. Republicans are liars, stupid or probably both. If you deregulate energy companies they won't spend money to protect the grid, it's that simple.

One policy Obama was clearly superior at was Iran. Biden is shit at handling tensions, he's making things worse. He ordered a strike against Syria, a very stupid move. Obama's deal is dead, it won't be revived.

Meanwhile in the US Senate Nerra Tanden is not getting confirmed because basically everyone but Corporate Democrats hate her But even some corporate Democrats won't confirm her because she sends mean tweets. They don't object to her taking money from all sorts of special interests, it's the mean tweets. Many progressives think this is crazy, but they also really dislike Neera, so they are cool with this. In other news the covid relief bill won't include a $15 minimum wage because the Parliamentarian thinks it'll break the Byrd Rule. Even if you grant this (Bernie Sanders thinks this analysis is incorrect) the position can easily be overruled by the Vice President. If Democrats were really serious about raising wages they'd do it. Unfortunately they like corporate cash too much.

Rush Limbaugh, NewsCorp

Rush Limbaugh died. Firstly he mocked the people who died of AIDS so I will mock him. Fuck him, the only reason I don't say he's burning in hell is I'm an atheist. He was sexist, racist, all the ists, homophobic, transphobic, all the phobics. He was human garbage! He called a women a slut because she wanted birth control. Meanwhile took a bunch of viagra on holiday, I guess because he couldn't get it up. When Cenk Uygur mentioned this during announcing his death I thought it was a bit much. But that was before I learned Rush had a segment mocking people that deceased from AIDS. The man was trash. He told a black woman to take the bone out of her nose when she called him. People say ding dong the witch is dead. I think witch is an inappropriate insult, can I suggest bastard scumfuck?

Facebook blocked news from Australia due to Australia making a law requiring them to pay news companies. Sounds OK. Until you realize NewsCorp lobbied for the law. My official position is NewsCorp can burn and I would piss on their ashes. The trouble with what Facebook did is they cast their net too wide and a bunch of community sites got caught up. It has since backed down which is unfortunate. The law was government intervention on behalf of NewsCorp, a company that pushes for free market anti government ideology. This is hypocritical. It's true that the news business may be less profitable nowadays but there's also wonderful crowd funded news organizations for example TheYoungTurks, The Guardian and The Intercept. Instead of innovating the Murdoch rags asked the government to make the mean mean internet companies pay, the hypocrites can fuck off.
