A friend was impressed enough to post a graphic on Facebook regards to Dr Jonas Salk, the discoverer/inventor of the Polio vaccine. It is not widely known that Dr Salk chose not to patent his invention, instead deciding that its benefit to humanity completely eclipsed any personal financial gain of his own. It is estimated … Continue reading
Following on from yesterday’s indictment on the looters we feel that examples of human endeavor towards intelligence might provide some inspiration. It is often surprising where this may be found. Take for example, the mighty city of Auckland, New Zealand’s biggest city, one and a half million inhabitants only, but an urban sprawl the size … Continue reading
We have spent nearly a year sitting atop a metaphorical mountain peak dunny contemplating the state of this planet and its human inhabitants. Despite coming to bleak conclusions about the intermediate and potentially ultimate fate of one or both, we have emerged personally from our contemplations with a fresh sense of emancipation and purpose. The … Continue reading
We are debating whether this guy deserves a Brickbat of the Week Award or a Peabody Award for Best Comedy Act of 2012. So many questions come up from reading this article: Half a bottle of Gin affecting the gentleman in question’s ability to drive safely we get, but where does the Viagra come into the … Continue reading
The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the … Continue reading
William (Bill) Paul Cornelius walked free from the Wanganui District Court yesterday. There is no sly wit or facetious slant on this post readers, just dismay and stunned shock as once again, the NZ justice system fails those who needed the validification of its turpitude the most. How does a serial rapist hillbilly, who by the judge’s own … Continue reading
As the famous bard quoth, readers, “Something is rotten in the State of Denmark”, however in this case, the fetid odour of marine ordure emanates once again from the backwaters of our own fair archipelago. There is much ado about the NZ Government’s planned partial sale of State Owned Assets at the moment, and for the … Continue reading
Larry Flynt, publisher, pornographer and champion of free speech. Mr Flynt has been smeared, sued, imprisoned, and even paralysed by those that would subdue his right to publish. We don’t ask, nor expect you to agree with him, or even like him, and I’m sure Larry Flynt doesn’t care either, however the man has stood … Continue reading
Free speech & personal choice have yet again been interdicted by the Forces of Darkness dear readers. Once more, masking themselves behind the selfless banner of social justice, hysterical zealots masquerading as right minded intellects have blundered forth across the boundaries of propriety & democracy making ridiculous allegations accompanied by even more absurd threats. What’s his … Continue reading
Apologies for absences and neglect readers, the Dunny Editorial Team have been on a compulsory sabbatical, the agenda of which we had Mr Ernest Hemingway draft for us-it’s involved a lot of fishing and testosterone+alcohol fueled risk taking behavior. Not to worry folks, we are all refreshed and happy to back on duty as your bugle of truth once again!
So a previously unknown fat German gentleman has been dominating the antipodean media of late. Kim Dotcom has acquired a popular notoriety via a generally sympathetic media. Don’t get us wrong, they have done a wonderful job of presenting the facts objectively for a change and not predetermining the fellow’s guilt in advance of his trial as so often is the case.
What is it with big Kim? Is it the fact he’s a jolly looking chap and even a child could see he wouldn’t hurt a fly? Is it the fact that he Robin Hooded a bunch of thieving profiteers and beat them at their own game? Or is it because that despite the fact the NZ psyche knows it’s wise to fear them, they feel a deep & righteous outrage at the USA’s bulldozer tactics while using the New Zealand taxpayer’s police force to violate the rights of yet another foreign national in someone else’s country?
Sending a team of navy SEALS into some towel headed third world cesspit like Pakistan to whack a global bad guy like Bin Laden was one thing, but this is our country (isn’t it?). Here we have a gentleman of considerable means-self made no less- with a family, and an entourage of highly intelligent, qualified European professionals working with him. There is no real evidence at this point that Dotcom has broken any laws at all. If we aren’t mistaken he has NZ residency at the very least, and to all intents and purposes, until recently at least, he was quietly getting on with his business out there in Coatesville.
Next thing we know we have an FBI Hollywood style raid going on complete with helicopters and armed offenders squad smashing the man’s door in and dragging him and his people off to prison. The long reach of the US Federal Govt-which evidently also extends all the way up the anus of the NZ Govt-has had all big Kim’s assets & cashflow frozen, which, considering the size of the man’s weekly outgoings, stands to potentially ruin him. Further to this, and possibly most fundamentally outrageous, is the fact that the NZ prosecution is “acting on behalf of the US Govt”. Excuse me? Is anybody else wondering when our justice system whored itself out to a nation of gangsters who define justice as the will of their Zionist masters?
Allow us to tender an opinion here. The US Govt has just enacted one of the most dubious & potentially shaky pieces of legislation in its history, a cadre of laws that potentially violate half the ammendments in their constitution. I speak of course of the SOPA bills
