Beware the other policies of dangerous Greens

first_imgGarth George – NZ Herald 15 Dec 2011For all the bollocking I have given Winston Peters in recent years, I am, considering the makeup of the new Parliament, tremendously glad that he and his colleagues are there. Why? Because they could well have to act as a counterfoil for the Greens. The Greens are dangerous. They are more than a polite group of tree-huggers, slug-savers and water samplers but you rarely, if ever, hear of the more sinister planks of their policy, which are frightening to say the least to those of us who care about what really matters. As a pro-life mate of mine reminded me this week, in 2008 the Greens in the Victorian Parliament voted for the decriminalisation of abortion. This meant that it was no longer a crime to kill an unborn child and Victoria now has the most permissive abortion law in the world. It provides that any woman can demand an abortion for any reason. The Greens in Australia also support same-sex marriage and same-sex adoption, and an education system which teaches that homosexuality is normal. Last year the Greens promoted bills to legalise euthanasia in the New South Wales, Western Australian and Victorian Parliaments. Senator Bob Brown, the leader of the Greens in the Australian federal Parliament, has said that passing euthanasia laws is a top priority.….Another mate of mine suggests that same-sex adoption is likely to be pushed by the Greens and Labour this term, but opposed by NZ First. The big question is whether National will resist this social engineering. The same applies to same-sex marriage. As for the decriminalisation of abortion, Labour MP Steve Chadwick, who was championing this law change, lost her list seat at the election but we can expect that “cause” to be picked up by another Labour, or Green, MP. And Peter Dunne is the only parliamentarian known to oppose euthanasia.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=10773262last_img read more

SHOEMAKER MILE STAKES QUOTES

first_imgKOSTA HRONIS, PART OWNER, TALCO: “When we saw the early fractions we felt pretty good, and we’re happy that this win pays his fee for the Breeders’ Cup (Mile at Keeneland on Oct. 31). He was first or second in his last four races and he got the pace today.” TYLER BAZE, MIDNIGHT STORM, SECOND: “He didn’t handle that grass at all, he couldn’t really get a hold of it. I’m still very proud of the way he ran; he never threw in the towel.” TRAINER QUOTES JOCKEY QUOTES JOSE LEZCANO, SEEK AGAIN, THIRD: “My horse just didn’t do it today. I tried to keep up with Talco and couldn’t.”             NOTES: Under the enhancements of the Challenge series, Breeders’ Cup Limited will pay the $40,000 entry fee of the Shoemaker Mile winner to start in the Mile if that horse is nominated to the Breeders’ Cup program by Oct. 19, the Pre-Entry deadline.

It was a big win. We just kind of wanted them to go fast up front, and we figured the one (Winning Prize) was going to go, with the blinkers on. Finally the race played out like it looked on paper and this horse is in top form right now.” RAFAEL BEJARANO, TALCO, WINNER: “When I came to the stretch, I knew Tyler (Baze, on Midnight Storm) still had a lot of horse. My horse gave me such a big kick off the turn, we were able to challenge him right away and then we outran him to the finish. The whole key to winning today was being able to stay inside around the far turn and really kicking well.“The turf is really soft and deep. I let him break good and I didn’t want him too far back. I saw that the pace was a little slow, for this kind of race, for these horses, so I didn’t want to be too far off the pace.” -30- FLAVIEN PRAT, BAL A BALI, FIFTH: “I had a good trip . . . I was pretty good on the last turn and I asked him and he didn’t answer . . . We beat the winner the last time so I don’t know; he was not good today.”last_img read more
