Happy Birthday America

Mitch's picture
Submitted by Mitch on Sat, 2008-07-05 03:03

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

That, right there, represents the very best of humanity, and it is one of the great injustices that it has become part of popular culture to bash America.

E-mail to University Lecturer Regarding Climate Change

Mitch's picture
Submitted by Mitch on Thu, 2008-05-01 06:36

I am currently doing a 'Public Policy' paper at uni. The lecturer's hobby horse is Climate Change, and what governments should do about it. Needless to say, he is firmly of the belief that the warming is man-caused. Read the following correspondence and judge for yourself. I have posted the lecturer's response as the first post.

SOLO Press Release

Tuesday Sept 4, 2007

For Immediate Release

Water on the Brain?

The revelation by National Party Associate Health Spokesman Jonathan Coleman that Labour and Green members of the Health Select Committee wanted to ban all beverages but water from the workplace shows what a disgusting bunch of control freaks sit in our parliament, says SOLO (Sense of Life Objectivists) Principal Lindsay Perigo.

Coleman made the revelation to Perigo on the latter's breakfast session on Radio Pacific this morning.

SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo’s editorial broadcast at 6.10 am and 8.10 am on Radio Pacific, Monday August 13, 2007.

Today marks the beginning in this country of Islam Awareness Week. I’ve been doing my bit. A couple of weeks back in my regular Salient column I referred to Islam as a stupid, stinking superstition, which it is, and explained why.

Live Earth = Dead Brains

The weekend’s Live Earth concerts across the globe brought together a suitably motley array of dimwitted headbangers and caterwaulers whose noise pollution is proof positive that screaming skulls destroy their own brains, says Sense of Life Objectivists (SOLO) principal Lindsay Perigo.

Kindly donated by our host Senor Perigo, who has removed himself from the running.

Now people, quit dawdling and get voting! This is an ideal way for SOLOists to focus on something other than our divisions. Whilst the Olympics will emphasise that most of the posts on this forum are actually very constructive, it also gives a fantastic opportunity to dish out some praise.

Smacking the Bastards Back!

Mitch's picture
Submitted by Mitch on Thu, 2007-03-29 07:01

"2,4,6,8, WE DON'T WANT YOUR NANNY STATE!" To have been able to stand on the grounds of Parliament and echo this statement into the office of Helen Clark has made the March on Parliament against Nanny State's Anti-Smacking Law a resounding success. No matter how one-sided the media coverage, or how little impact we may have had on the law change (for now), Wednesday 28th March was a victory in the fight against this government's fascist intentions.

Nanny State's fascist anti-smacking bill

Submitted by Mitch on Wed, 2007-03-21 02:25

In response to the dictatorship's intention to take away a parent's right to smack their children, a march on Parliament is being organised for Tuesday 27th March Wednesday 28th March. Reports from the media suggest that up to 80% of people are opposed to Sue Bradford's bill, and in a somewhat pleasing development, some MPs have finally started kicking up a fuss.
