Retweeted from @BJChippindale

@futuroerahoy Government should authorize/back the actions of business owners.

They are the ones who really have a dog in this fight and THEY are the ones who are going to have to do most of the enforcing. If we have to go into another lockdown THEY are the ones it hurts most.

Are you surrounded by fools and non-entities, by boring people … creeps, stuck-up snobs, bubbleheaded party kids, smug assholes, and, indeed, jerks?

If this is how the world regularly looks to you, then I have bad news. Likely, you are the jerk.

Retweeted from @keithfrankish

I wish we were more nuanced in how we judge people. People are a complex mix of traits–acquired, inherited, deep, shallow, self-cultivated, and self-deplored. We should praise their good ones and discourage their bad ones, not rush to a binary judgement of the whole person.

This is going to sound counter-intuitive, but If a choice is difficult, you probably don’t need to worry about it.

Meanwhile, final results are in for that *other* election (NZ). Labour took 3 electorate seats off National. National lost 2 seats overall, to Labour and the Maori Party. And there were some other less-obvious but interesting developments: #nzpol

Retweeted from @kiwieric

I understand the need for opposition politics, but parties are all supposed to help run the country. We should rename them “Assistant Parties”, so National is the largest Assistant Party this term. Their job is to help the government, with support & opposition as needed.
