What a mess. Lehman Brothers down, AIG going ... this is surely, on a global basis, worse that '87. Does anyone else have stats?

Fantastic seeing him make it through his semi-final.

The interview after his heat was not KASS, but refreshingly honest, turning the pap, rote interview against the reviewer.

SOLO-NZ Press Release: National—Just Another Party of Compulsion

May 27, 2008

National, never renowned for its adherence to principle, has stooped to a new low with John Key’s confirmation that he is willing to violate four of the nine central principles ostensibly promoted by his Party in one fell swoop, says SOLO spokesman Mark Hubbard.

SOLO-NZ Op-Ed: Health System - Let's Take a Knife to Nanny and Start Over with Libertarianz.

Mark Hubbard

March 17, 2008

Social commentator and man about the world, Clive James, speaking of Soviet-style 'free' health circa the Cold War, hit upon the obvious truth Socialist apologists in the West would rather have ignored, that the Soviet health system was not free at all—in fact it cost the Russian people everything they had, right down to their freedoms and their lives.
