The sorry tale of changes to working conditions
Employment Law changes

By Adrian
I very much agree with what I just read. People do get tired and lose their attention span. Some people need to breath and some need manage out of work problems from time to time. The result of these changes will become more tired, stressed out employees and possibly even more social unrest outside of work which is not good in any long term plan. I really do like NZ first party for their common sense leadership views. Well done.
Upsetting comments by Immigration New Zealand
comments by new zealand immigration officer

By Sudhir Rajagopalan
The sad reality is that most kiwis are racist. In many  discussion sites ranging from topix nz,facebook, talk back radio commentsand letters to the editor, I have estimated that around 75 percent of kiwis are racist. We cannot expect to change the hearts and minds of kiwis.   However, government departments should never be racist and this is very disgraceful. The cat is now out of the bag and we now know clearly  the true ugly and racist underbelly of NZ Immigration

THE BOOK OF GENESIS TIED TO ANCIENT SCRIPTURES

By Kerushini
I strongly believe that Genesis of the Bible ties in with what is depicted as the great rulers according to ancient scriptures. Genesis 6:4 says - There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
