    NZ did ditch the old English Monarchy awards but then they were brought back a few years later by a different government ( the Key government because Key wanted a knighthood). The awards have lost meaning these days with them been handed out willy nilly ( for god sake, they gave one to (Don)Key).

    Calm down, not attacking you, I am on your side. The blades, torches and pitch forks is nothing more than a metaphore, just a figure of speech, unless... that is all you got. Just a pun based on the US Independance/Revolution and getting rid of the Royal crap-ola.

    These monarchies crap needs to go, an archaic system, nothing but parasites, a drain, non value added individuals. Just give time to time, nothing is set in stone. Find a map from 1920 and compare on what is now. Go back a bit more, what about 1900 and 120 years later. Empires and Nations die and reshape on some new. I see a big change in the future.

    The bitching part is an option. There are two options, "fight" for a change (as work hard and make sacrifices) or put up and shut up (some will do nothing but bitch).

    Owe to the US for past wars... The Debt (at some owe, favors, monies and all in between) is always paid by the Creditor or Debtor. The more the Debtor owes to the Creditor the worse is for the Creditor to collect. We are at the cusp of a dying Global-Incestous Central Banking System and a Global Economical Slowdown.

    Again, big changes ahead.

    What is going on in simple terms is a feud between Globalists Vs Nationalists. Have you ever heard the say about "All Wars are Banker's Wars".

    Is all about Currency control.

    Yoo blokes are right, capitalism only way to go. That worked out well with the GFC, banks caused it then were bailed out by Guvmints. Boeing is another example of Capitalism at it's best, get into all sorts of strife building an unflyable aircraft then CEO bails out with a 60 million payout!!!!!!!! Interesting what the payout will be to the passengers killed by Boeing aircraft, no doubt Boeing will fight it for the next 10 years in court before they have to pay out a paultry amount.

    No is not... is Corporatism/Fascism. When the Corporatations powers merge with the Government is what you see now. Is not Capitalism by a long shot.

    So your fix is Socialism? If worked so well on east Europe, why they feiled?

    As usual the answer is somewhere in the middle.
    Anything now has to be black or white, any shade between is not listened to or tolerated, just shout and bully people who disagree.
    Take politics, no middle ground.
    Climate debate, we have the people who say we'll all be rooned then the other mob who say no problem.
    The answer is in the middle.

    That is not politics, that is Economics. Politics is nothing more than salesmanship. A Politician is, a person who acts in a manipulative and devious way, typically to gain advancement within an organization.

    What are the qualifications for politicians? Just 1, be Corruptable. With enough money, exposure and speech writers, a Monkey can be PM, Pressie, Gov, etc... If you place a person in power and use their corruption as leverage... you are watching right now the crap-show. The US, EU, UK, etc.... they all run on leverage.

    What we are experiencing is when an Oligarchy takes control of the Gov to advance their Corporations. Free enterprise and competition is demolished with rules and regulations to favor their own interest and the "too big to fail" idea.

    People are easy to fool and manipulate their feelings, at the end, they all vote with their wallets.

    On the Boeing crap. Is a typical case of the Oligarchy stealing from their own company. The vast majority of all Corps in the US, do not care about the product. The top brass main goal is the Stock Market. They get Stocks for free, then, turn around and the Corp buys them back, paid via Corporate Bonds. Soak, Rinse and Repeat. Is called Stock Buybacks, a dirty trick to boost the numbers and a legal way to steal.

    Take Boeing as an example, is all public information. See the stock price on the top left? See how much they get awarded for free. Is in Market Watch under the Insider Tab. Is inmoral but legal and who writes the laws?

    Nothing to do with decisions. Inorrect data added into a database is all users fault. Entering things with codes that are meant for something else and entering data in the wrong columns and naming the data as something other than it is is totally user error. When your staff have been doing this for a year, its not lack of experience, its not taking the time given which there is plenty of it. So my advice to you BOF is don't make assumptions.;);)
