Christchurch earthquake package

Govts Christch Response Today

Thoughts:

Press conference was terrible - come on chaps lead, inspire and show some compassion

Seems like a good deal with some flaws which I'm sure if theres a will (debatable) will be addressed

I assume those from Western Pacific are included, in which case I'm sur there are some very relieved people right now.

Something needs be done about the un-inured, we must look after our own - even if some are idiots (not suggesting all the uninsured are idiots, some though are).

However, I am concerned the most of the response to the earthquake is centred about possessions and money - where is the response to the people?

Is there nothing not being done that couldn't directly benefit the people of the city by the government or lead by?

Damn the costs, whatever they are we can afford it

Day Twelve

Admission

I read too much

but not nearly enough of my reading comes from books

must try harder

Day Eleven

Despair

The feeling I get every time I hear of more earthquakes in Christchurch

I was about to post a list of things I was looking forward to but the news of more shakes just makes that notion seem crass.

Its no longer appropriate to ask those in Christchurch to be strong... hang on and hope seems the only message one can send

Sometimes one wishes faith was a fallback and resort

The best part of getting older is memories from when you were younger...

Back when I was young I thought the Chills one of the ebst bands in the world ever... as a mature gent I still love them.

Sometimes I wonder if I spend too much time listening to music from my youth... and then I think, fuck it, who said I'd grown up and I listen to something new

The Financial Road to Serfdom

How Bankers are using the Debt Crisis to Roll Back the Progressive Era

By Michael Hudson

Financial strategists do not intend to let today’s debt crisis go to waste. Foreclosure time has arrived. That means revolution – or more accurately, a counter-revolution to roll back the 20th century’s gains made by social democracy: pensions and social security, public health care and other infrastructure providing essential services at subsidized prices or for free. The basic model follows the former Soviet Union’s post-1991 neoliberal reforms: privatization of public enterprises, a high flat tax on labor but only nominal taxes on real estate and finance, and deregulation of the economy’s prices, working conditions and credit terms.

What is to be reversed is the “modern” agenda. The aim a century ago was to mobilize the Industrial Revolution’s soaring productivity and technology to raise living standards and use progressive taxation, public regulation, central banking and financial reform to d…

An admission of failure

There are several end goals the 45 days of bob are meant to produce... one is to be a little bit healthier at the end of this 'thing'. Yet only three days in and already I've failed on the coffee free 45 days plan.

Oh well at least I've given away the smack habit and butchering of the neighbours hens

for now at least






















This is a photo of Strong healthy bob - note he can pose sans specs... wow
