A story of two morons
Here's a story of two morons, only one of whom is called John.
John Key says, "Nanny State is storming through your front door," yet he plans to do nothing about it. Notes Martin Bradbury at Tumeke:
[TV3's Sunrise co-host Oliver Driver] ran through a list of the Nanny State hit list and asked if John Key would change any of them. A slightly perturbed John Key had to stand unblinking as Oliver went through them…
Driver: “Prostitution Reform Law”
Driver: “Civil Union Act”
Driver: “Repeal of Section 59”
Key gulps: “We’ve always said that we wouldn’t do anything if the law is working”
Driver: “Power saving light bulbs”
John Key is just dishonest, but the first moron really is you. That is, if you think voting for John Key will alter any damn thing at all of what you dislike about the present government -- if you think that your wishes about what he might do will have any effect at all on what he will actually will do -- then you really haven't been listening, and you sure as hell haven't been thinking. You're a moron. You're ballast. You're a useful idiot for your own damn destruction.
The second moron is Martin Bradbury himself. "The point is made," says the moron. "Nanny State is a myth." What a fuckwit. He's a fuckwit several times over, but he's really deeply idiotic if he thinks John Key is an advocate of ending the Nanny State, or has any idea even what it is (FFS, getting the government out of our bedrooms was not more Nanny State, but less). And he's either blind or braindead if he really thinks Nanny State is a myth. I know that he's in lust with big government and he's never seen a dictator he didn't like, but how could he possibly ignore all this?
