Anti-terrorism in NZ : A bit of a camel… that leaks

“Prime Minister Helen Clark says her Government’s anti-terrorism law was “a bit of a camel” from the time it was passed five years ago.” ~ Terror law ‘faulty’, admits Clark, Simon Collins, New Zealand Herald, November 9, 2007

“Secret police evidence in the anti-terror case has been leaked in what appears to be a high level security breach, prompting calls for an inquiry.” ~ Top-level leak of arms case evidence, Tracy Watkins, The Dominion Post, November 10, 2007

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished.

It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harrassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed, and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored.

That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.” ~ Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century

    Dude, that’s a llama.

    Does she mean “a bit of a camel” as in “a horse designed by committee”?

    Camel / llama… it’s the image used by the promoters of the film The Story of the Weeping Camel. Aunty says:

    Combining drama and documentary, The Story Of The Weeping Camel is a lovingly observed and fascinating journal of day-to-day survival in the Mongolian Gobi desert. For a family of herders who happily eke out their living in this remote dustbowl, crisis comes in the shape of a newborn camel rejected by its mother after an agonising birth. They undertake to rear the calf by hand, but the longer he’s denied his mother’s milk, the more likely it is the little camel will die…

    And yeah, I think so.

    fucking hell, that’s a bit extreme!

    it’s a cama, a dromedary camel/llama cross-breed.

    either that or a bactrian-dromedary cross [popular in afghanistan].

    cute as hell, yes.

    oh, hi!
