Then you didn't have depression.
Who is going around miserable anyway? Being aware and sensible is a whole other thing as I think you do know really.

This is silly now.

Many many NZ people homegrown or otherwise do not feel or no longer feel stoic about quakes. They want change in several areas.

That's today's reality check.

I agree this is silly - 'people want change in several areas' please suggest what?

No they don't, native Kiwis don't have your attitude. They lie awake at night and worry about their safety and their kids safety just like everyone else does. If they didn't there'd be no need for the Red Cross to be giving them psycho-social counselling now would there? m.nzherald.co.nz/health/news/article.cfm?c_id=204&objectid=11752993

Avail yourself of this by listening to what others are currently saying out there. That would be the ones on the sharp edge & the ones that have to pick up the wretched pieces.

It's no good being bullish with me y'know. You made a sweeping statement which is incorrect & have been called on that.

Facinating, being a Kiwi (mostly), being ex military, being a male, living in Keri (in one thread it was my age) become pejoratives that downgrade my opinion :-) Starting to sound like 'identity politics'

I am more interested in what you are saying Bevs and the changes proposed.

You are now trying to twist things because people, including kiwis & myself don't agree with your initial sweeping statement.

That won't change. We don't agree with you.

It has nothing to do with who you are and everything to do with what you have written and the way you have expressed it.

I'm not doing your reading and listening for you. You must do that for yourself. After all this is your country as much as it is mine so it should matter.

No Bevs, some people (incl some kiwis) no doubt do disagree, but no-one incl yourself (who stated 'people'want change') can suggest an alternative to my stoicism or migration. Until you come up with your changes you are weaselling out by attacking me.

You own your own sweeping statement & posts Kotare. All that has happened is that you have been called on that.

Here is a little heart warming story.

Good example Bevs.

New Zealand's infrastructure is so over-stretched that it can't cope with the increased demands of tourism, can't house families, can't send kids to school with food in their stomachs, or settle outstanding earthquake claims.

Yet the government says it has a $1.8 billion in surplus and wants to dish out tax cuts because an election is approaching.

This is why people want change.

Quick straw pole of all the kiwis around me,
Do you lie awake and worry about earthquakes.??


Answer 100% No !!


I have a family and a new grand daughter in wellington
and still the total number of earthquake related f**ks given is zero !!


People are just getting on with shit, and others, like you, are almost willing them
to be miserable. . . get over yourselves
