Cold night, beauty day out there. Holy crap, it’s almost midday and I really should be out of bed doing something at least… One more car renovation show, then will get into vertical mode and out the door. Promise…
Been spending a great amount of time and money on these feral cats. Crazy Cat Fiend. Hey, well, someone has to do it.
WHEN THE SPCA SAYS “RING EXTERMINATOR AND PUT THEM DOWN AT YOUR OWN COST” you have to wonder if the old CCDHB buildings they are in have infected their mindset
Society For Prevention of Cruelty to Animals my arse.
So, Gareth Morgan, I am dealing with these feral cats for you.
It’s rewarding actually.
But really should get out of bed. So much to do, so little giving a shit about it all.
Snowballing mental health appears to show itself in how many cats you have.
What came first? The crazy or the cats?
NZ HERALD shares Multi millionaire business guy gets caught with four grams of good old fashioned cocaine, gets name suppression made permanent, gets a small fine, almost zero percent of his net worth…. Meanwhile people like me go to jail for taking a couple of painkillers to get on with everyday life.
Fuck you NZ Justice. YOU OFFICIALLY SUCK.
Highlighting the gap between the haves and the have knots has never been simpler.
This wanker got caught with FOUR OUNCES (over 100 grams) of pure cocaine and gets fined the equivalent of 0.0001% of his income.
The drug law in New Zealand is garbage. And, although pushed on us by Henry Anslinger followers after the bullshit prohibition on alcohol went west, must be adhered to.
If you, or dare I say it, I, were found with an amount of cocaine large enough to fall into the category of DRUG DEALING, we would be going to jail, no question. Along the way we would not get our names permanently hidden from public scrutiny.
New Zealand “JUSTICE”
Picking up a little rubbish once a week gets you out the house when on home detention ankle bracelet.
It also introduces you to problematic acquaintances…
A little like people going to N.A or rehab for the wrong reasons.
Still, no choice. ON with it.
Life goes up, down, somewhat sideways. Appearing to be circles, actually spirals. Upwards, downwards, somewhat sideways.
In the here and the now, just do it.
Diagnosing Tesla as someone similar to yourself is not narcissistic.
Meanwhile, life on an ankle bracelet sucks arse. Better of in jail in a lot of respects – socialising being chief. Us humans rarely thrive in isolation. Being excluded results in all manner of shit storm. Addiction and further disengaging from society being chief.
Us humans really thrive by being on the same wavelengths.
Tesla was ahead of his time.
Just wish he’d applied some of his science to individual humanity.
That is all for now…
Remember FOX NEWS said “BUSH HAS WON THE ELECTION” so all the other news outfits started doing it so as to not be behind, or miss the scoop. The thing is – BUSH DIDN’T WIN. He lost – but the other guy, hearing that he had lost, threw in his towel and conceded, at which point he was fucked. Don’t forget FOX news was run by one of the Bush family at the time…..
Anyway, slightly off the topic, but when have you ever criticised me for being on topic to start with..?..
We need more honest proper journalism and independent investigative journalists. Nowadays you can spot errors in about every single story on every page of every newspaper. Main TV news seems to be more and more like the internet news of old every day.
And therein lies the problem.
People want cute cats, death and mayhem.
The mass public will not sit through a thirty minute story showing both sides of an argument properly… 110km/h on highways kills people.. Boy racers are all druggies with bald tyres. Cute cat.
Sorry about taking some saturation out of your overly coloured American TV face John old Boy…
And then there is JOHN OLIVER.
He did his usual fifteen minute of TRUMP BASHING, and to his credit he manages to keep this fresh and interesting each week – or maybe it is just due to the fact Trumpt comes up with so much shit each week he is simply too easy, and then progressed to do an opinion piece on the state of addiction in the good ol’ U S of A.
Not a bad effort… Other than he took great pains to ridicule the term “pseudo addict“.
A term I hadn’t heard of. A term which sounds, on the surface, to be total bullshit.
Good on you John, you are the man.
In the context of a drug company trying to show the world it’s drugs are not the cause of addicts problems, it possibly is bullshit. More than possibly even. Plausible denial anyone?
But wait — There’s more…
(yeah, yeah – you guessed it…. Unca Fiendipoo has a spanner. And a good throwing arm.)
Start scratching under the surface (or maybe just start scratching depending how much of an addict you really are) the theory is quite sound. It may come from the mouth of a pseudo scientist, but someone who exhibits addictive drug seeking behaviour may be no more of a problematic addict than you or I (queue Americans favourite laughing track – the auto chuckle)…
Fiend says –
“Pseudo addict” may just have a place in this debate on how to deal with the problems of addiction in capitalist environments.
Let us just say… Just for debates sake…
If I am in pain (me? never…) and need a few opiates to coach my kids football team, I go to the doctor. The doctors glasses slide down his nose and he looks at me sideways. No matter how much they know about my pain, my back, my lifestyle, my parenting or my need to participate in life on terms agreeable to me, the maker and the pharmaceutical companies – the doctor will always look at “addict” potential first and my quality of life second.
Purdue, we have a problem.
And, by the sounds of this John Oliver thing, so do hundreds of thousands of Americans.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I have not gone all soft in my old age. Americans can all go still fuck right off and suck Clintons dick / clit dry as far as I am concerned.
However, I feel for the pain and the difficulties the poor people who are controlled by the whim of the pen. On a good day the doctor will write. On a bad day, the doctor wont. The days are not so much swayed good or bad by his kid playing well at football — more the pressures put on him by media, drug companies capitalistic ways and the controlling bodies antiquated views of addiction.
This week John Oliver has told the world the drug companies are confusing the doctors. They obviously need to play with their own product some more.
Or, since no one has an attention span any longer than a thirty second sound byte (I know – I am ADHD super hero number 666) …
Dear John ,
Thank you, and goodnight.
John seems to have pitted himself against capitalism AND addiction. The first time anyone in history has managed this. A little like … hell … cannot quite work out what it’s like.
Maybe I am very much every inch totally drug fucked as the idiots at Wellington Addiction Services would tell you.
