Hone Harawira a.k.a. Walking Eagle...and a pat on the back...

...Of all our useless trough feeding MP's, one stands out more than others...a true racist and self hater whose diatribes are grudgingly tolerated by a weary nation; Mr Hone Harawira. THIS interesting anecdote about Hone comes (courtesy PKH) simultaneously with the news that his own political cronies are once again at loggerheads with him (not that they have any moral authority to be critical - keeping a guilty silence over their own shortcomings) over his allegations that his daughter would be loathe to vote for the pathetic bunch that call themselves The Maori Party...
...On a recent trip to the U.S.A. , Maori Party M.P. Hone (rhymes with bonny) Harawira (alias John Hadfield, his true name, his grandfather was a pakeha (white)) was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nations in Kitimat, B.C. about his recent examples of how to inflame the Maori Indigenous situation in New Zealand.He spoke for almost an hour, echoing his racist mother's doomed-to-fail radical ideas for increasing any First Nation's standard of living.At the conclusion of his speech, the tribes presented Hone with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - "Walking Eagle".The proud Hone then departed with his entourage, waving to the crowd as he left a news reporter later asked the American Indian Chiefs how they came to select the new name given to Hone..They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
WE did it. For once, we acted collectively, as humans, huddled together on a fragile planet, rather than as selfish individuals. And we did it: we beat global warming.
So now let's move on.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, 2010 was Australia's coldest year since 2001. Since logic tells us the planet can't be getting hotter and colder at the same time, we can confidently pronounce global warming dead, buried and comprehensively beaten.
This victory happened because individuals pulled together, within nations, and then the nations of the world themselves pulled together. Meetings were held in places such Kyoto. Rousing speeches were made by world leaders. People clapped and felt good about themselves. Documents were signed.Clearly, with each meeting, each speech, each inked treaty, global warming was pushed back.
Here in Australia, we also did our bit, big time. We declared global warming the great moral challenge of our generation. We talked confidently about doing something or other. (OK, I can't remember what it was, and we never actually did it, but then we talked about doing something different . . . though maybe not straight away.)Anyway, it worked, because last year was the coldest year since 2001.
Tim Flannery, Al Gore and others published books and made films. Clearly they deserve a slice of this massive victory over global warming. To them we say: "Thank you, gentlemen, you may now return to private life."
But now that we know what we can do by dint of collective effort, we should turn to new challenges....more here...

Well, it's been a few weeks. Here's some new outrage the "media" doesn't seem to care about.
Bribes, payoffs...so what?
