Zelaya, the Folding, Migaloo
the next day Anthony made it snow, which killed off half the crops—but it was a good day.
According to the CID-Gallup Poll, Zelaya's job-approval rating dropping steadily from 2007 to just 38 percent in October, though a February poll showed it had rebounded to 53 percent.
recent media reports have repeated the claim that "Zelaya's support has sunk to 30%", which is loosely (very) echoed in this AP report
What is the world coming to when the BBC can show a picture of an AhmedD ralley with him cropped out, and claim it is an opposition rally?
And Winston Peters can complain about Separatist laws ...
"You've heard about the separate court system, the separate prisons system, the separate education system. And now you've got a separate ownership system," Peters told ONE News political editor Guyon Espiner.
What puzzles me is this: If some iwi clearly have title to coasts, why do others 'clearly' have rights of access? Either the title rights are clear or they are not.

Sura 81: The Darkening (the Folding?)
In the name of the merciful and compassionate God.
When the sun shall be folded upthriceholy
When the stars shall fall,
When the mountains shall be set in motion,
When the she-camels shall be abandoned,
When the wild beasts shall be gathered together,
When the seas shall boil,
When souls shall be paired with their bodies,
When the girl child who was buried alive shall be asked
for what crime was she slain,
When the leaves of the Book shall be unrolled,
When the Heaven shall be stripped away,
When Hell shall be made to blaze,
When Paradise shall be brought near,
Every soul shall know what it has produced.
It needs not that I swear by the stars of retrograde motions
Which move swiftly and hide themselves away,
And by the night when it cometh darkening on,
And by the dawn when it brightens,
That this is the word of an illustrious Messenger,
Endued with power, having influence with the Lord of the Throne,
Obeyed there by Angels, faithful to his trust,
And your compatriot is not one possessed by djinn;
For he saw him in the clear horizon:
Nor dos he grapple with heaven’s secrets
Nor dos he teach the doctrine of a cursed Satan.
Where then are you going?
Verily, this is no other than a warning to all creatures;
To him among you who willeth to walk in a straight path:
But will it ye shall not, unless as God wills it, the Lord of the worlds.
this Sura drawn to my attention by Dantec. - oddly for a "pro-zionist" The first 5 chapters of his book BB are a brilliant war story Uighurs etc, the rest of the book is an ordinary cyberpunk sort of thing. Neural matrix mind becomes aware, girl has mutant telekinetic twins, virus visions yadda yadda..

Went to Afghanistan, with his Govt gun, intending to kill people who hadnt attacked him. Fortunately they got him .
Viktor Ivanov, the head of Russia's Federal Drug Control Service... it was reasonable to "call the flow of Afghan opiates the second edition of opium wars." ...a lot of politicians in Russia who said that the Americans specially arranged the situation in Afghanistan so that we would receive a lot of drugs, and this is the real aim of their occupation," said Andrei Klimov,
USA gives up on Heroin control in Afghan. - moving in to supervise?
Back in 70s, after the acid wore off, we realised we had hit the stops.
After de-colonisation, Womens Lib, Gay Lib, Green/Values party, Ecology, Race rights, we thought we could do anything.
I guess we thought that moonshots and Concorde flights would be along for the ride.
Overshoot - in a Coromandel commune, clothes, money, property, sexual mores...we thought we could live forever without them.
When the realisation hit... I looked at the Bic disposable lighter in my hand, and realised that ecology was trumped by instant energy. I saw a passing Chrysler Valiant charger, and realised that kiloJoules trumped conviviality. Somehow golden triangle heroin was right there, and we jumped right in. psilocybin and mescaline lost out to poppies.
Now Empire, clearing a path for pipelines, is moving down into Afghan poppy fields. Some synergy between Capital and Heroin.
