Personal responsibility

My dad (love him) sent me this in an email. I wasnt a child of any of these decades so im sure the reason he sent it to me is beacuse he knows how much i value freedom, and responsibility hahaha. that and he wants me to know how "brave" he was.
take a read. its very very true.

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank
while theycarried us.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and
didn't gettested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright
colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets
and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we
took hitchhiking.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags.
Riding in the back of a pickup on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, twinkies, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop
with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we
were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K. There was
only one phone in the house and you asked permission to use it.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then
ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into
the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games
at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no
cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chatrooms..........
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not
live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were
told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door
or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't
had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.
Theyactually sided with the law!

This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem
solvers and inventors ever!
The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned

And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to
grow up as kids,
before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our
own good.

And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know
how brave their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors,
doesn't it?!

its all in the past?!?!?

Helen Clark’s defence of David Benson Pope amuses me, Saying the Victims should have come forward sooner. Well Helen if this is the case. . .

What about that Nichols lady who was "assaulted" with police batons and forced to have sex with those police officers.
What about the Complaints of the unusual treatments at psychiatric hospitals in the 90's.
What about the Catholic church under constant barracking for naughty priests.
What about the apology you made to the early Chinese immigrants for the way they were treated.
What about the Treaty settlements.

No complaints were made at the time of ANY of these incidents!!
oh wait, no labour ministers were directly involved in any of these were they... well then that’s a whole other story isn't it. i forgot you were never a fan of ONE LAW FOR ALL.

Does anyone remember what Helen said when confronted with the agent orange allegations.
"its worth pointing out that in 1964 i was a fourth former in high school"

why is it ok for her to be a young naive helpless 4th former and not anyone else?
I myself was 14 in the fourth form, and all I can say is Helen your lucky David Benson Pope wasn’t old enough to be your teacher!

Nandor Makes no suprise there.

Nador came to Play today, By play i mean he came to spout Green Party nonsense at campus.
i had the giggles for the most part of it, but decided id ask a question anyway,
My Question was along the lines of this

"i read the Greens website and on it you advocate Free tertiary education, id just like to know if the greens would put up taxes in order to provide a free tertiary education, and if so. why is it then fair that a plumber who works 16 hour days to put food on the tablefor his family and pay the bills, has to fork out for my education if i choose to study to be a lawyer."

im not gunna attempt to qoute him in full, cos he went on for a while, but his reply (and believe me i was shocked) was that he doesnt believe in income taxation. he believes people shouldnt be taxed for "goods", but rather "bads" such as pollution (i cant remember but did the greens support the fart tax?)

at 2pm he then came to speak to the Executive(those of us that could be bothered) and the one thing i guess i was annoyed at the most relates to a Debt write off policy. where efectivly the better job you get the more you pay on your loan regardless of qualification. i asked him to explain what would happen in the following situation:

Kerry and Maddy both graduate with a law degree, Maddy gets a job at a top law firm, kerry decides to work in a community based law center, earning significantly less than maddy.
and would his policy mean that Kerry would have her loanwriten off before maddy and there for pay less for her education than maddy did.

He said yes that was correct. Kerry because she went into a lower paying job would pay off less of her loan than maddy.

and it all tied in to something he said in the quad, The rich are rich enough to pay more.

am i the only person who thinks this is all Crap?? I mean why does a party, who proclaims to stand for fairness, and helping families advocate this sort of stuff. The Greens have it seriously wrong. If so called "rich" people are taxed more do they honestly believe that they will stay in this country and continue to contribute to our economy?

so yeh why the Nandor report u ask ? its not that i would ever be a green voter, i wouldnt even consider it, but it just irritates me so much to have this sort of attitude in our country. by attitude i mean this whole notion that successful people should be punished through not only taxation, but a failing education system, crazy employment laws and so much more.
The Greens would do nothing to stop these things or change them! Nandor talked alot about how he believes they will have a huge input into the labour govt. and that they are looking stronger every day. i dont think labour will ever let the greens push them round, but if such an event occurs, i will seriously consider finishing my tertiary education, and bringing my family up somewhere else.

Rodney and that Pocket Rocket

So there we were, sitting with Rodney Hise in parliaments temporary Bar after a really interesting tour, and Meet in greet with the man himself and who should walk in but Dear ol Tonto (Clayton Cosgrove), by himself i might add... the opportunity was to good to miss, Rodney was quick of the mark and the converstaion went a lil something like this.

Rodney: Clayton,

Clayton: Rodney.

Rodney: Why dont you Join us for a drink? you look like you need a friend.

Clayton: No rodney thats your department (exeunt)

Clayton clearly missed the large group of young people surrounding Rodney.

The night was great fun, Rodneys an amazing person, and is an asset to NZ politics, and the people of this country.
