He and Jo support active steps towards providing greater opportunities for ordinary Koreans from North and South to interact together – a goal of leaders from both North and South Korea. Hopefully, with enormous interest from the world media, this trip will be the catalyst for such a change.
I took great exception to again hearing Soper, the left-wing loser, getting his irresponsible points of view across on radio. Wasn’t this twerp “The Dyke’s” demonstrating partner when spitting on Vietnam Vets was the norm?
For those of you with a penis – I would like to remind you that it doesn’t matter how young you are, or how much activity your equipment gets – do not ignore it as you would your wife/girlfriend or even me.
******* IT IS TIME FOR YOU PROSTRATE CHECK *******
If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for someone that loves you !
I know friends overseas in Spain and the UK who get prostate checks, but apparently it’s no longer done with the finger up the backside check. It’s done by some other method testing for PSAs. Anyone know more about this? Is the finger method being replaced?
I wonder if Morgan will come out in defense of Nazi Germany. After all, the German Socialist Party promised the same sorts of things to the German people that Morgan advocates and he is clearly a fan of socialist one party states.
Until recently the evil capitalist empire of the USA was sending food aid to the poor bastards in NK. Morgan needs to wake up. Having said that, the best way to bring about change is with this approach, as opposed to war. The cold war ended without a shot fired and places like China are now trading partners. Compare that to Vietnam or the current cluster-fuck of Afghanistan. Korea can be reunited peacefully and that should be the goal. Find common ground and build on it. It is proven to work. War does not work.
Carlos – PSA is one item that can be measured in a blood test. Apparently a number about 5 alerts futher attention, like a biopsy to find actual evidence of cancer, which is often then monitored by three monthly blood tests. If the PSA result is over 8 for two consecutive tests an operation is advised to remove the prostate. A result of 12 can indicate the cancer is likely to have spread beyond the prostate. Numbers may vary considerably – a friend had his cancer spread beyond the prostate at 9.7.
Start with the blood test.
The DominionPost this morning does an admirable job cutting The Three Mousketeers down to size.
The editorial is a must read for dummies like rossie69 and his fellow travellers.
It is read and learn time dummies.
The PSA test is useful but of limited reliability, unless there is another reason to test it is probably not worth carrying out until one reaches an age where the risk becomes higher. It is not a replacement for a physical checkup.
And there are other prostate problems besides cancer that are bothersome, a benign but enlarged prostate can be a right nuisance…
Labours Sham election
Has anyone considered the logistics of Labours claytons election.
20% for the unions(owners) 40% for the MPs. And 40% for Our people
And over seen by a selection committee ( Central committee)
There is a lot of unanswered Questions?
Who gets a vote in the union faction? Committee members or Union Members
Do Labour party members who are also Union Member get two votes.
Will the labour track down all its membership. (Which can’t be that difficult as the old and infirm and normally in rest homes) to give them a vote.
Or just give the vote to a select few who turn up at the hall meetings?
Who is on the selection panel?
The reality is to meet the 20/40/40 the result has to be a bit dodgy.
At the end of the day the selection will be done by the Central Committee.
The election is nothing more than a publicity stunt.
I believe many men are put off having a prostate check because of the finger up the arse method.
I had that done about 20 years ago but for some unknown reason no doctor has ever done it since.
And I do have twice yearly health checks. And yearly blood tests.
I think the main thing is to watch out for the signs.
An ex workmate of mine was having to urinate about 12 times a day. I told him to have a prostate check, which he did.
Turned out he had an enlarged prostate but no sign of cancer.
In my experience the digital exam has proven to be unreliable. I passed those exams with 100% free. A series of PSA tests in tandem showed an entirely different story and was followed up with a biopsy (in terms of personal dignity the digital was a doddle, the biopsy was an entirely different story. Brings tears to your eyes!)
Failed that one. For you folks with dangly things between your legs, it pays to get both tests regularly. A moments loss of dignity costs way less than a coffin.

The “Buffoon Morgan” calls North Korea a “beat up”
He and Jo support active steps towards providing greater opportunities for ordinary Koreans from North and South to interact together – a goal of leaders from both North and South Korea.
Both leaders appear to be actively pursuing their goal – most of us call it war.
National is increasing savings and creating jobs built on exports and productive investment.
We’re getting on top of debt, and returning to surplus sooner.
We will extend the successful mixed-ownership model – where the Government owns most of acompany, but offers a minority stake to investors – to four state-owned energy companies, and reduce the government’s stake in Air New Zealand.
This will give Kiwis a chance to invest in large New Zealand companies.”
The 2011 election results?
National got 59 out of 121 MPs.
The final vote on the Public Finance (Mixed Ownership Model) Amendment Act 2012, was 61 – 60
In my considered opinion – the voting public of Ohariu were thus effectively misled by United Future and Peter Dunne on the issue of support for the ‘Mixed Ownership Model’ for State-Owned electricity assets and Air New Zealand.
In my considered opinion, United Future and Peter Dunne SOLD OUT the voting public of Ohariu by voting in support of the Public Finance (Mixed Ownership) Amendment Act 2012.
Had Peter Dunne kept faith with the voting public of Ohariu – the Public Finance (Mixed Ownership Model) Amendment Bill should have BEEN DEFEATED 60 – 61.
I thus believe that I am absolutely correct in my statement that THERE IS NO MANDATE FOR ASSET SALES – given that this minority National Government (which DID campaign on asset sales) has only 59 out of 121 MPs.
As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron.

Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention.
Syria activist Danny, the poster child to justify a military invasion in Syria, caught staging entire CNN interviews including directing fake gunfire off stage.
Raw video footage of the Syria activist Danny as he waits to do a live video interview with CNN shows him directing off-stage fake gunfire and explosions, as well as being directed to tell CNN he has been retrieving the bodies of civilians from buildings that collapse due to Syria army mortar fire. It also shows Danny totally exaggerating a sense of fear and urgency as he goes from being totally calm, smiling and even somewhat bored before the on air interview starts to acting totally scared, hysterical and pretending he is in the middle of a war zone as soon as the actual interview starts.
The UK might be in the shit for allowing a British company to export the chemicals needed for chemical weapons to Syria in 2012.
The Government was accused of “breathtaking laxity” in its arms controls last night after it emerged that officials authorised the export to Syria of two chemicals capable of being used to make a nerve agent such as sarin a year ago.
The Business Secretary, Vince Cable, will today be asked by MPs to explain why a British company was granted export licences for the dual-use substances for six months in 2012 while Syria’s civil war was raging and concern was rife that the regime could use chemical weapons on its own people. The disclosure of the licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride, which can both be used as precursor chemicals in the manufacture of nerve gas, came as the US Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States had evidence that sarin gas was used in last month’s atrocity in Damascus.
Re Prostate Testing…
My PSA’ were normal, but a finger test indicated abnormality, this was confirmed with a biopsy, and resulting treatment has me clear 4 years later.
I’m grateful for my doctor, and for the fact he’s a little guy with skinny fingers!
Most of the geriatrics who have made a big deal about what was a very ordinary performance by a nondescript entertainer remind me of the silly old farts who fifty odd years ago thought that the end of civilisation was heralded by Elvis Presley & The Beatles.
They should leave the poor girl alone to fade into obscurity the same way her wretched talentless “Achy Breaky Heart” father did.

If you ever came down out the mountains and got out of bed with your sisters and brothers, you would know that condemnation of Cyrus’s act was widespread and not confined to any particular age group or cultural group. Cyrus’s dancing was flat footed and ugly and her technique completely with out style.
Your attempt to compare the criticism of Miley to that which accompanied pop groups in the sixties is just another example of your weak limp dicked pot head cliché ridden view of the world.
Get out a bit you sixties drop kick hillbilly clown.
Better being stuck in 1965 than living in a !950′s McCarthyism time warp of your own creation obsolete old dinosaur . At lest the sixty’s was fun.
The wall fell so long ago the kids don’t even know what it was
THe wall was taken down by Reagan and prog arseholes like you and Narsekisser have been ever since trying to rebuild it. Guess what scum. You can stand on the watch towers and malign everyone you don’t agree with as out of touch, but that wall is coming down again, and there’s fuck all you or Narsekissa can do to stop it.
WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) Winter lacked its usual Antarctic chill in New Zealand this year to record effect.
Scientists said Tuesday the South Pacific nation had its warmest winter since record-keeping began more than a century ago.
The average nationwide temperature was 9.5 Celsius (49.1 Fahrenheit) for June, July and August. That’s about 1.2 Celsius above average and 0.3 Celsius above the previous record set in 1984, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research said. Record-keeping began in 1909.
“The neo-conservatives, who are closely linked to the neo-corporatists, are rather different. They claim to be conservatives, when everything they stand for is a rejection of conservatism. They claim to present an alternate social model, when they are little more than the courtiers of the corporatist movement. Their agitation is filled with the bitterness and cynicism typical of courtiers who scramble for crumbs at the banquet tables of real power, but are always denied a proper chair.”
― John Ralston Saul, The Unconscious Civilization
“Dr Sharples talks in terms of making this nation more “culturally inclusive for our children”. We could not agree more, and to this end 1law4all is working towards a nation in which New Zealanders of every colour, ethnicity or blood can grow up in a world of entirely equal opportunity. As neighbours we would like all peoples to treat each other as they would like to be treated themselves – with respect, honour, decency and kindness if anyone needs anything, or is in trouble. We don’t need Te Tiriti to do that. We need to grow up as a nation, and start to recognise that we will never move forward with this massive millstone placed round the neck of the nation by ill-advised politicians acting at the behest of a “treatyist elite.”
Te Tiriti is not a constitutional document. It was and is a simple four paragraph acceptance of both parties best interests at the time. It is now time to ditch it, for it no longer serves New Zealand. How can it possibly? We are still arguing about the translation. It is an absurdity that New Zealand still weighs itself down with this totally anachronistic Victorian document.
If Dr Sharples insists there is racial discrimination and hatred still present in our society then Dr Pot is talking to Dr Kettle. The only racial discrimination is that of vast public funding being allocated to race based organisations – e.g. Maori TV. How much does that absorb every year from the public purse? How many operations at our Hospitals do not take place as a result of preferential funding to people who are not of European origin?”
Yep that’s right you weak arsed commie toady, if it comes to debate you can’t even write your own words and if its not links to no doubt dumbfuck jpegs that no one can be fucked clicking on its completely screwed up and disconnected quotes from people who do at least have some ability in self expression.
In other words, they have high standards, but they fail to meet them personally. So what, we need standards we can all aim for rather than just the lowest common denominator. May as well just join Machiavelli in that case.
“Lock them up and dont let them see the cold light of day” more than likely was a thought that ran through the head of the nuns as they threw single mothers back into their rooms after a long day at the laundry working tirelessley to make a quick bucks for the holy orders that ran such kips. Single mothers were placed in these institutions becasue they had a child outside of marriage, children were given up for adoption or sent into some industrial school and the mothers looked upon with disgrace, daring to have sex outside of marriage. Even at that, it was not only single mothers whom were sent but women whom may have been single but seen to have been too beautiful for how she may tempt man to “partake of her flesh”. Women from society of all types were sent against their will to the laundries.The last of these institutions only closed in 1996, closing its doors never again to be opened thankfully. Ireland however has still held itself back all these years, the closing of the last Magdalene laundry marked a deliniation in the role of Irish society perhaps not frowing upon the sexual being that is inside all of us but to think it was a complete deliniation is far from the truth.
The Ryan report unmasked the level at which child abuse was prevalent all through the schools run by the Irish church and to what extent the abuse was perpetrated. Priests, most of whom were placed under an obligation to stay celibate, were shown to have been abusing children to satiate some sort of urge they had which can be attributed partially to the twisting of norms at the time at what was accepted and what was not. Sexually you only had sex to procreate and sex for any other reason was seen as a sin except in households where the wife was expected to grit her teeth, spread her legs and think of Ireland in what became a societal norm and not seen as it should have been, an abuse of womens rights , a violation of her own body.
Marriage in Ireland up to 150 years ago was as informal as it is today for many ‘living as married’ couples–the Penal Laws, which Britain had introduced in the mid-17th century making Catholics second class citizens, meant that, while the church was identified with the oppressed, it had little effect on the oppressed’s day to day life. In 1793 the ratio of priests to Catholics was 1:1,587.4 In 1840 it was 1:3,023. There were very few church buildings.5 The church had little influence on family life or on sexual mores generally. This section examines how changes in women’s role in production following the Great Famine led to changes in how reproduction was organised within the family.
Red, you can not blame progs for that. It is the internet. I am not convinced it signals the collapse of society. Though I would like to see a return to some more traditional values around sexuality and relationships.
Its damn sure it isn’t down to Christians and Conservatives. Stuck in the sixties Prog scum like Narsekissa and Grief have been attacking moral standards, fathers and the family for decades and this is the result. They’re cowards and this is what we get for allowing them to assume social ascendancy.
That’s a fucking laff. There’s hardly a day gone by here on GD where you you sad demented fuckwit haven’t launched some bigoted attack on Christianity. You’re a one issue tired lame old bigot, and that’s a fact that doesn’t deflect from anything.
What fucking genius designed Labour’s new Leader exercise –
party divisions and a plethora of policies.
With the official annual conference approved policies now augmented by three more new lists, who has any bloody idea what the fuck Labour stands for?
That is rich coming from someone whose pot rotted brain is stuck in neutral and still stuggling to find drive and get out of the sixties. You and your ilk have built the biggest most racist intrusive government edifice that has ever existed in this country’s history, destroyed our education system, turned our universities into Stalinist indoctrination camps, attacked and attacked and attacked again the concept of private property and freedom of expression, and then you come on here and preach to me about liberty? Fuck off you dingbat. You wouldn’t know liberty if it was chewing your useless prog arse off.
Don’t blame me reddy I am not and neither have been a partisan national/labour voter.
I dont define my self like a sheep.
I make up my own view on reality based on my own evaluation of the world around me..
I vote for the party that has the most palatable policy mix congruent to my economic and social viewpoint.
“Don’t blame me reddy I am not and neither have been a partisan national/labour voter.”
I do blame you. You only have to read a few of your comments here to understand how completely besotted you are with the progressive ideas that caused us to arrive at this destination. You’re a libertine who have cheered and clapped as government has grown into a monolithic all powerful socialist monster, and worse, signed up to agreements that attack our sovereignty and make us subjects of a corrupt and dysfunctional world government. The worst is you’re so fucking dopey you don’t even know how or why you’ve done it, but done it you have you clown. Now fuck off back under your rock and allow those trying to do something about your sick Marxist fuck up to get on with it.
I was referring to the way you recycle your own comments Baity. You’ve been posting the same crap for years knowing that most will forget the first, second & third times you wheeled out the exact same propaganda.
Do we really need any more evidence of the fact that you’re a yellow backed prog coward Narsekissa? One day prog scum like you will wake up to the fact that it is you and your utter contempt for any standards of honourable and decent behaviour that has given rise to the state that wants to regulate and regiment us in every facet of thought speech and life. You sad smug smirking moron.
We seem to be surrounded by the gnashing of dentures and rattling of zimmerframes nasska. We being invaded by the sycophantic cohort of incontinent bible bashes. Quick a porn mag , one of those Shockley modern music videos and a puff of pot will repel the god besotted geriatric zombies.
I suppose that we should congratulate Radio New Zealand that the amended thier story aboyt the train derailment on SH1.
Originally it was three carraiges derailed but for the 1pm bulletin it had been corrected to three wagons. And I didn’t email them about it … I wonder who did or did somebody realise the silly error and change the script.
It was interesting that the general public do not know either becuase both voxpops called them carraiges
Pardon me while I do a little weep …..
