Firstly, Kudos to Rumbach and E Mckee
[Sorry guys - I’ve probably made you bad people by association :(]
So, US=GG, I’m a boor huh? [Def: ill mannered and / or insensitive person].
Heh. Pot:Kettle:Black. …you poor petal, treading on your tiny little toes are we? Don’t worry precious.
1. What has New Zealand ever done to contribute to mankind except for allowing the Lord of the Rings production company to use it as a backdrop? I was just curious.
Well, lessee. Two examples off the top of my head which are kind of importantand by your criteria, relating specifically to contributions to mankind:
Lord Ernest Rutherford split the atom
and Maurice Wilkins along with Crick and Watson did that whole pesky DNA thing, got some sort of award for it too.
Now LoTR is a good film, but i’d hardly consider it a contribution to mankind.
And since the director and the writers and the production crew are predominantly from NZ I am bemused asto the backdrop thing.
That was uncomfortable for me.
Probably because it wasn’t a direct insult; you had to try and think creatively. [C- BTW for your creative effort]
Your tactic of making these inflammatory accusations and then trying to seem reasonable with the “just interested” comment, is ridiculous.
Where was this “inflammatory accusation”?
I encourage everyone on the forum to realize that iscariot called the United States a terrorist country. He said we should attack ourselves and Israel before attacking Iraq.
Not this AGAIN sigh One more time for the hard of hearing - I think that’s just you US=GG.
By saying that place X is a terrorist country,you are saying that EVERY PERSON
in that country is a terrorist.
Obviously this is rubbish.
Now, what I said, was this. That the US
has groups within its borders that are by definition terrorist groups, I suggested that perhaps the US should clean its own house first before telling everyone else how to run theirs.
This is a simple concept - for everyone except you US=GG.
Diesel: As a side note: you’re saying that I should be more concern with NZ’s politics. Why? I like my politics and the direction of my country.
Also, NZ should keep it’s nose out of the US’ arse [I believe youso eloquently said]. Doesn’t this strike you as even slightly ironic or say, hypocritical?
You can’t seriously be arguing that the US is the only country that has a legitimate reason/ right to stick their nose into other people’s business.
