Yeah cool, ETNZ won the cup, we won the cup, New Zealand won the cup. Now, who's willing to pay to host it? Goff and English are luke warm at the moment and non-committal. Gutless voter pigs with no spine nor pride in investment. These clowns are the very men you have making decisions everyday around your future and they behave like scared children when the obvious is staring them in the face: invest!! No part of the country is going to miss out on Americas Cup money should it be funded and run right. Any investment that pays 80% profit is suspicious unless its an investment in the economy of a country, a proven investment, a return as certain as the stability of the country. So why are the politicians being so shy? It's the votes they worry about, not YOUR future, the economy or anything that YOU thought you voted for. Scream at those vote sluts, beat them with the voter stick. It's the only thing the animals know. We need 200 million dollars to do up a bit of land that is otherwise poisoned by years of petro-chem storage and will need to be confronted at some stage soon anyway. The silo field is so contaminated that the council wants to stay away from the topic. The chemical companies definitely want you to stay away. At some stage we need to confront the past and clean the fucking mess up. Now's good. If ever there was funding and interest to tidy up the mess created during WW2 on the waterfront, now's it. Kick the chemical companies out. Let's tell them, transport your fucking poison well away from our water cunt. We don't wont you to spill any more of it in there. You greedy cunts have taken the profit and left your fucking responsibility in the dustbin attached to some contract that dissolved the minute you changed company names, shareholders legal entity or whatever. Clean up your shit and fuck off somewhere else. Transport your shit by trucks away from our water, our land, our food source. So. Are to expect the private sector to pay for something that'll benefit all of us or do we not mind a little tax-payer investment in the economy. Bare in mind the GST . If the cup brings $500,000,000 into the economy then the GST take is $75,000,000. If it's double that, and people are saying it will be then make that $150,000,000 in GST alone. Add PAYE and other taxes to it and you'll most likely end up somewhere in the $250,000,000 area of tax alone. The government should ram at least $75,000,000 into the project. Auckland City Council can wack in another $10,000,000. That'll just about do it I reckon. What say ye....
Carrie Fisher said that she's an expert about people who use cocaine and she said that Trump was sniffing during the debate because he snorts cocaine. This is a load of BS! Has this woman never heard of allergies? What Fisher said was Slander. Fisher is an expert at acting and writing but that is all. She is no expert about drug use. I used to be a big Carrie Fisher fan but not anymore. I am now going to boycott Fisher and many other Trump bashing celebrities.
Hillary Clinton said that half of Trump's supporters are deplorable and that they're racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. She had no right to say that. She judged and labeled people who she knows nothing about. She went too far. She should be ashamed of herself for saying such awful things about millions of people. I would not stoop so low as to judge and label people who I don't even know. I'm a Trump supporter but I won't label Hillary's supporters. I won't label Hillary's supporters because I know nothing about them and I don't have the right to judge them. I know nothing about Hillary's supporters but I do know about Hillary. She is prejudice. I wish that judging and labeling those people was the only incident of her bigotry but there have been others. I have a message for Hillary: "Before you judge any other innocent people, you should take a good look at yourself but you'll probably puke when you do".
I'll be honest. I was very disappointed by the election results. I didn't want Hillary Clinton to win the Democrat nomination and I didn't want Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination. I wanted two different people to run for President. But I can tell you about three people who were originally against Trump but now want him to win. Those three people are: myself, my cousin and a friend of mine. When Trump said that he can get prayer brought back to schools, I became his supporter. My cousin once called Trump 'The Devil', but after he took the time to re-examine things, he changed his mind. I also like that Trump says that he'll help our vets if he wins. Our veterans fought and were prepared to die to maintain our freedom. Out of all of the people in the USA, our veterans deserve to be helped the most. Yes, Trump has his shortcomings. Two of which are his temper and he loves to shoot his mouth off. Trump has his shortcomings but he isn't a tyrant like many people claim. My dad had a temper and he loved to shoot his mouth off but he certainly wasn't a tyrant. I'm getting sick of people comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler. Trump isn't another Hitler and people know it. Trump also has other shortcomings but Hillary Clinton also has a bunch of shortcomings. Let's forget about the charges that she has been facing for a moment. Even if she had never faced charges, she still has her shortcomings. Two of which are that she's racist and she's a bully. Hillary admires Margaret Sanger enormously even though Sanger said that black people should be exterminated. That is racist. Many years ago, Hillary referred to some mentally challenged children as 'F****** retards'. She bullied sweet, innocent children. Children who were mentally challenged. Both candidates have flaws. If Hillary wins, she will not be a better President than Trump. I'm not saying that Trump would be a better President than Hillary but he sure wouldn't be worse.
