General election 2015: what to expect
As Marx rightly pointed out, the oppressed will be allowed in November ‘to decide which particular representatives of the oppressing class are to represent and repress them in parliament’. Most people will vote in the hope of breaking free from prolonged social and economic ills. Yet, election under the 2008 constitution is the opium of the people simply fostering a culture of false hopes among the oppressed.
Over the past few years, exploitation by local crony capitalists and their foreign partners has been exacerbated. Farmers and workers, the most impoverished in the country have become the most oppressed. Landless farmers in their fight against illegal land acquisitions face death and prison while workers fighting for reasonable and fair wages suffer similar consequences. Students who have always been at the vanguard of the oppressed also go through ruthless torture and persecutions by the organs of…

Presumably an advertising campaign for the Easter period showing a recent addition: that New Zealand classic hokey pokey, which is more often seen in ice cream, but reconfigured as a chocolate flavour.
Whittaker’s is now one of New Zealand’s most popular (and enduring) brands, having been around for over 120 years – if you count it in its most primitive initial form. I love this brand, and enjoy it regularly. There’s so many things about the product that has appeal besides it’s “home-grown” quality, packaging, and advertising.
Giving you the (sticky) finger: the only Whittaker’s advert I’ve ever found. Even then there was a company ethic with focus on local labour and supplies. Evening Post, 1932.
However the essential one is that Whittaker’s has a truly unique flavour that comes from their personal supervision over the entire process – from beginning to end, or as they have dubbed it –…

Main Military Prosecutor Sergey Fridinskiy gave Interfaks an interview several weeks ago in which he described generally improved crime statistics in the Armed Forces. But he also called the scale of corruption in the military nothing short of “cosmic.”
Fridinskiy told the news service the army’s crime situation is stable and even improving. Crimes by servicemen are down 16 percent, and there are fewer crimes committed by officers. There’s a constantly growing number of military units where no legal violations law are registered. Last year fewer soldiers suffered violence at the hands of their fellow soldiers. But the army’s top law enforcer doesn’t think he’ll run out of work any time soon:
“In particular areas, for example, like saving budget resources allocated for military needs, or corrupt activities, the crime level, as before, is significant. And we’re still far from ridding ourselves of nonregulation relations.”
More than 1,000 military officials were prosecuted for corruption, including 18 general officers — one-third of…

In my attempts to expose the genealogical “royal” bloodline – the passing of pure blood type as opposed to mere genealogical “family tree” relation – I came across a researcher from Ancestry.com named Tim Dowling. On his site, and reproduced below, Mr. Dowling has connected the trees of all U.S. Presidents to the Plantagenet King John circa 12oo A.D.
DIRECTIONS: To see the full charts or tree for each president, click on the “Relationship to King John” link below, and then on the next page click either the “tree” link or the link below that which looks like this:
Ancestry of George Washington, President up to John of England, King See
This presentation will hopefully satisfy those who were not satisfied with my previous presentation of mere cousin relationships between all U.S. Presidents, which can partially be found at this link: http://www.geni.com/blog/look-whos-related-george-washington-and-all-the-presidents-325451.html

There is a move to allow Satan within the house unchecked and this is bad for the believer. “Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works” (2 John 1:9-11).
Those who follow the teaches of Judaism do not have God and their father is Satan. You cannot have God the Father without his Son Jesus. No Pastor should allow anyone to enter into the house of God (church) with a doctrine opposed to Christianity. A Pastor who does this has taken part in wicked works. If this Pastor refuses to repent or even hear the gospel…
