You Could Call This A Stock Market Crash

- With a 10% fall on the NASDAQ in the first two days of trading this week it may well be reasonable now to call the latest round of market mayhem in New York a stock market crash. See...

“Helen Clark Is Discriminating On The Basis Of Gender” – Prebble

- In response to media requests for his reaction to the appointment of a female Governor-General, ACT Leader Richard Prebble noted that the new Chief Human Rights Commissioner is also a woman and in fact the Government hasn’t appointed any top job to a man. See... Helen’s ‘Jobs for the Girls’ Scheme Flourishes [1]

Opposition Don’t Feel Consulted About Appointments

- Labour's claim that it consulted with other parties on the appointment of the Human Rights Commission demonstrates the arrogance of this Government, Opposition Leader Jenny Shipley said today.

Gays Do It, Straights Do It, Only Catholic Priests & Nun’s Don’t Do It

Two do not necessarily become one in a country where marriage is a man-made civil right for some people instead of a God–ordained sacrament. See... Big News: You May Now Kiss.. Um, Um… Each Other [1]
