The Politically Incorrect Show - 01/06/2000
[Music - Die Fledermaus]
Good afternoon, KAYA ORAAAA & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Thursday June 1, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd, the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit & excellence against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.
[Music up, music down]
"A pinch & a punch for the first of the month" might well be the government's motto for today as it pinches more of our money by way of the newly-increased excise tax on alcohol & punches us every time we stand up & look like being productive - except that this is the way the government behaves EVERY day of every month. The realisation that this is so has obviously sunk in:
"Business confidence has suffered its biggest plunge ever. The crisis has prompted the Prime Minister to take charge of possible changes to the draft workplace legislation widely blamed for the slump ... The fall [in confidence] is the biggest in the [National Bank] survey's 12-year history. For the first time in two years, pessimists outnumber optimists," reports The New Zealand Herald. And while observers are blaming the Employment Relations Bill, government luminaries are blaming each other - Finance Minister Michael Cullen is telling people not to take any notice of Comrade James Neanderton because only he, Cullen, speaks for the government on matters of economic policy. Well, that's not calculated to inspire confidence either!
Nor is the spectacle of the Prime Minister herself wading in. Our Great Leader already has far too much to say on matters which are not her concern. She & her whole regime should butt out. It's their butting in that has shattered confidence in the first place. The Employment Relations Bill is only part of it. There have been the tax increases (promised & unpromised), the re-nationalising of ACC, the closing down of the South Island West Coast's logging-based economy, the proposed imposition of politically correct quotas in the work-place, the establishment of a Ministry for Economic Development (what a joke that is already!), the extension of taxpayer-funded apartheid & a general bossyboot meddlesomeness that of course is going to frighten the horses.
When he announced his opposition to the proposed ban on smoking in bars & restaurants the other day, Comrade Neanderton said the policing thereof would lead to "an NKVD-type situation," alluding to the former Soviet security police. Why can't he see that his government is lethally exacerbating an already-existing "NKVD-type situation" vis a vis the whole economy?
I have already outlined an 8-point short-term programme that would see the economy roar away at breath-taking speed - see my editorial of last Wednesday, May 24. I claim no copyright over it - if the Comrades wish to uplift it, I'm happy for them to be my guest. They won't of course, since my proposals are for lower taxes, less government expenditure & less government intrusion. But can they afford not to? Every day over 200 New Zealanders are fleeing the Democratic Sheeple's Republic of Aotearoa. Sooner or later this regime will have to accept my logic - or close the airports.
Less pinching & less punching are urgent imperatives.
