And the mass hysteria

Pope Francis was recently reported a saying “a person who thinks only about building walls were ever they may be, and not a building bridges, is not a Christian.” Yet the Vatican city is surrounded by an almost impenetrable wall.
The idea of a wall or a more impenetrable fence than what exists between the USA and Mexico has received a huge outcry of protest yet no one has protested the wall between Mexico and Guatamala or the new wall turkey is building between itself and Syria.
The new US president has placed a temporary ban on refugees and travellers from a handful of countries identified as being high risk by

Criminals know no bounds
This is how it works to steal your credit card details:
You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they return the card to you.
You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.
The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card

NZ Food Regulations Under Review
As part of the process of globalisation and putting the control of life into corporate hands, we have seen increasing regulation over our foods and medicines. Governments say this is that the interest of public health and safety, but in reality they are supporting the industrialisation and increasing levels of toxicity in our foods through the use of GM O’s and harmful chemicals that create new diseases.
The New Zealand government is complicit in denying its citizens the right to know what’s in some of their foods and eradicating small organic producers in favour of their rich mates.

An age old problem facing humanity
While there are some women who are kept chained, such scenes as this are fetish practices after which all participants returned to their daily life
It seems probable that slavery extends back to the very first humans with those who were not perhaps so bright were told by others what to do. In other words or another way of expressing this is: submitting to someone else’s will is an optional survival strategy.
With the increase in the human population, at different periods of time and history which we know from old accounts that slaves in essence became the workers and the architects became the middle-class. In Roman society almost everyone had slaves including

And the decline of an empire
Image courtesy of Youtube
The USA does not portray itself as an empire, rather it portrays itself as the world’s policeman toppling dictators and fostering in democracy. While this is the official line that a vast number of people have been led to believe, it is far from the truth.
I don’t recall the logic behind the US invasion and eviction of the Spanish from the Philippines, but this was the first theatre in which the US demonstrated its power to the world beyond its own borders. In the Philippines, the people were initially appreciative that the US had helped to send off the Spanish, that when the US refused to leave the

Best wishes to the Philippines new president, Rodrigo Duterte
Rodrigo Duterte is a Filipino lawyer and politician of Visayan descent who began serving as the 16th President of the Philippines on June 30, 2016.
He is the first Mindanaoan president of the country and he has stirred a great deal of controversy at home and abroad. He is brutally honest and he does not pander to political correctness. John Oliver and other foreign media commentators insult him, the criminals fear him but a group of UN technical experts from reputable international civil Service organisations and think tanks have judged Mr. Duterte as the best President during the period under review.
Mr Duterte stepped into the role as president of a

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to

A favourite yet mildly toxic beverage
In 1934, Australian industrial chemist and inventor Thomas Mayne developed Milo and launched it at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Milo was then produced at a plant located in Smithtown, near Kempsey on the North Coast of New South Wales. The name was derived from the famous Ancient Greek athlete Milo of Crotona, after his legendary strength.
Milo soon became a favourite children’s drink in Australia and New Zealand, and we are not sure if it was developed for Nestlé or bought by them soon after it was introduced. But it has proved a winner and is widely sold around the world today.
Most people love the taste of milo, but what’s in it?

Three guys, Osama bin Laden, George W. Bush and a Canadian guy are out walking together one day. They came across a lantern and a genie pops out of it.
The genie said “I will give each of you one wish. That’s three wishes in total”.
The Canadian said, “I’m a farmer, my dad was a farmer, and my son will also farm. I want the land to be forever fertile in Canada.”
With a blink of the genie’s eye, *POOF* the land in Canada was forever made fertile for farming.
Bin Laden was amazed, so he said, “I want a wall around Afghanistan, so that no infidels, Jews, or Americans can come into our precious state.”
