Once again, here's the best half-dozen barbs against barbarism posted at NOT
PC this week, based largely on what got readers stampeding to the site.   If you
missed out, here's what kept readers most informed, enlightened and entertained
this week:

  1. A Gordon
    Gekko drive by
    . Who to get angry at when dishonest scum like Rod
    Petricevic and Mark Byers keep floating to the surface -- and how their
    thieving helps to explain inflation.
  2. Robert
    Heinlein's house
    . A house for fans of Robert Heinlein, Frank Lloyd
    Wright, Richard Neutra -- or people whose souls are stirred by efficiency.
  3. Scum.  What
    Labour brains think of hiring labour.
  4. Privatising
    the forests
    . One of New Zealand's largest privatisation was
    effected this week.  How come the usual suspects didn't notice?
  5. Falsely
    inflated drug harms
    .  "Spectacular but useless" is  just one
    description for an index of the costs of drug harms that ascribes all the  the
    costs incurred due to prohibition to the costs of the drugs themselves.
  6. Its Kelo
    Day!
    Take one day out to remember those people whose houses are
    taken by government to give to crony phony “businessmen” like Donald
    Trump.

Radio plug yesterday for Not PC

Leighton Smith (NewsTalkZB) was at it again. Recommending listeners to view Not PC and scroll to "How many dead rats will John Key make *you* swallow?"

Also asking listeners, "which political party offers less govt interference?"

Not the first time the Libz are being referenced in the mainstream. http://www.solopassion.com/nod...

Indeed, methinks.

I think you were confusing a gauntlet for a quip, Hilton. Smiling

Anyway, thanks for the positive comments, folks. I hadn't seriously intended going anywhere.

Quality martini-time long overdue, methinks.

WTF?

Look, if I'm intruding here you just let me know, and I'll be off.

Of course you're not intruding. I for one would like to see you "intrude" more often, as of yore. What are ya, some kind of contrary Irishman, Oirishman?! Time we had some quality martini-time, methinks. Eye

I enjoy the quality of the content you create, both on your blog and the Free Radical.

Solopassion obviously creates a different value experience from Not PC , and even though Sandi put you on the back foot with her observation, I dont think it's necessary for you to trash SOLOPassion by comparison or in defense.

That's all I was on about Peter. so why throw down the gauntlet like that when you drew first blood with your quality/quantity remark?

I admit that reason is a small and feeble flame, a flickering torch by stumblers carried in the starless night, -- blown and flared by passion's storm, -- and yet, it is the only light. Extinguish that, and nought remains.- - Robert Green Ingersoll

Nice

Thanks for the posts PC they are all great! Keep up the good work.

Sorry to be a bother, and all.

It's about quality, Sandi, not quantity

Last week you took me to task about my subtle dig at Yaron (which wasn't appropriate I admit).

However...you've just slammed us all with a not-so-subtle dig, but yet you have the temerity to come and do your canvassing among all us sub-par posters here at SOLOpassion.

That's just not cricket now, is it mate?

Checking your SOLO blog......

I see you have posted one contribution since March.

And here you are on SOLO plugging your own blog?

"Who is John Galt?"

Loved the post about Gekko,

Loved the post about Gekko, Peter! ...you are quite correct about the 'zero sum game' being a falsehood.

(Do not mean to be nitpicky, but the 'dishonesty' of Petricevic should be decided by the Jury)

Was surprised more people did not comment on the forests, particularly about issuing shares to the public as a form of privatisation, considering it is Libz policy.
