"Are there some things that bloggers shouldn’t write about? My friend Roger Green promoted a recent post saying, “I'm told that blogging about blogging is a sin. But when there's an ask Roger Anything query on the topic, I MUST respond!” And so, he did."

"National Party Leader Simon Bridges, who has overseen a shambolic and badly targeted Opposition, is now under pressure as never before. One of his party’s MPs has gone rogue, accusing the Bridges of corruption, among other things. This is one of those times we need ample popcorn to watch all the political infighting."

"Our water was turned off one day last week so they could replace a water main. This is one of many times since we’ve moved in that either the water or the power or both have been turned off, and, like most of them, we received a notice about it (the top of which is in the photo above). But unlike the previous times, we were fully prepared. Even so, other issues emerged."

"I’ve long said that if the USA wants a better class of politics, we need a better class of politician. And what that means in practical terms is that we need younger people, people of all different races and ethnicities. We need people of all religious beliefs—including especially those with none. And we need a LOT more women in office. The ad above highlights that particular effort."

"The Tweet above was posted above by NBC News, and while its subject is pretty sickening, it's also hardly surprising. But when I saw a meme based on it today, it underscored how hard it is for ordinary people to evaluate memes. The Tweet above is both real and from a reputable source. But memes based on such Tweets can accidentally call that into question."

"The meme at left popped up on social media in the past few days, but without any links or other information on sources, it’s hard to evaluate for truthfulness and accuracy. However, I did the research the original meme-maker did not, and it turns out that the core point of the meme is true and accurate, and it also turns out that the lack of sourcing is not the fault of the person who originally shared the information. This underscores how dodgy political memes often are."

"I posted the above to the AmeriNZ Facebook Page, so I’m sharing it here, too. Despite the questions I ask, I think the answer is bleeding obvious—hopefully, not literally."

"Change happens all the time, but it’s a little unusual to go through the exact same change twice. But that’s what’s about to happen to us. It’s like déjà vu all over again."

"This past weekend, I shared an unusual photo of Leo and me in a post about “Ordinary days”. The photo above isn’t about anything in particular, though it was another ordinary day. Both are about what can be seen. What can’t be seen is the problem here."

"If Republicans or Democrats were asked who their adversary in a US election was, they’d say the people of the other party, and they’d be completely wrong. The reality is that the people who determine election results are by far the biggest group of all: Those who don’t vote.

The brief video above…"
