Posted in: The popularity of Japan vintages is astonishing. I believe prices will further go up. See in context

Not only the so-called 'Japanese lawsuit guitars' of the 1970s; several of which (at that time) were better than the US produced ones. But also many of the local acoustic brands at the time are exquisite guitars. Kohno, Yairi are world-class and many from the era feature Brazillian Rosewood as the tone woods. Tokai and Orville are stand outs for the electrics. The 1970s Ibanez 335 copy is as good as the original Gibson.

So pressure your legislators to do their jobs. Abortion should never have been to SCOTUS to decide upon in the first place. In this, at least, they have made a sensible decision. Respect that both sides of the debate have equal validity; debate the issues, pass laws.

There's no doubt about it - Ireland were much better than the 13 ABs they had to face ..or is that farce? Rugby has lost its way with the amount of cards dished out. We no longer know which is the better team - just who is unluckiest in under the subjective whims of World Rugby and the referees.

A great day for proponents of free speech and a slap in the face of the woke left. All in all - a beautiful day to be a Twitter user.

and b y the way Hiro: He overpaid for that garbage. It not even worth half that amount. Is literally just a app for people to post a quick picture, video and text. With that kind of money, he could literally pull several nations out of their economic woes.

You clearly don't use Twitter at all if that is what you believe.

England looked very poor. They seem to have no real attacking ideas. France were strong in set-piece facets but their skill-level was average. Both these teams are quite beatable.

Posted in: More protesters expected at thinning New Zealand blockade See in context

It certainly is interesting watching the media arm of the Labour party trying and failing to paint these freedom protesters as white supremacists and whatever else kind of boogeymen the left are currently obsessing over. Yes, there are some 'crazies' in the crowd for sure. Anyone who has taken time to go down and walk through the protest can quickly see it is mostly concerned, happy people (overwhelmingly left-wing themselves) tired and upset over government overreach in NZ. And now that the high court have ruled that mandates are illegal; and now that the measures of the Ardern government are so clearly failing - well, it is only a matter of time before many of the measures are abandoned for good. Sadly, the horrendous cost to NZ will endure for many years to come.

Ardern thereby confirming that she no idea what she is doing. The country has printed itself to a standstill, inflation is rising, democratic process is calmly disregarded by the labour government while the media (bailed out by the same government) keeps telling everyone the situation is all roses.

Just like her now infamous: "eliminate child poverty" promise/lie, so goes her elimination of covid 'strategy'.

This has been disastrous for NZ. The economy has been wrecked and despite our naturally small, isolated islands managing to delay the inevitable the endemic nature of the virus means this has been nothing more than an expensive exercise in futility. Ardern must be called to account for her incompetence.

Same as it ever was. I had predicted that NZ would return to #1 after their first meeting with SA post-RWC. It would have been in 2020 if not for covid. Who would have guessed it would happen before they even played.
