    Leftist New Zealand Government Kills Woman on Oxygen Machine by Cutting Power Over $120 Electric Bill

    A NEW Zealand schoolteacher who relied on a machine to breath died after an electricity company cut power to her home because she owed them £62.

    Police are probing the death of Folole Muliaga, 44, on Tuesday, two hours after state-owned company Mercury Energy turned off the supply to her Auckland home.

    The mother-of-four relied on an electric oxygen pump and had been off work on sick leave since February.

    She had fallen behind with her payments and despite relatives telling the company she depended on electricity to stay alive, six days later the power was switched off.

    Almost immediately, Ms Muliaga had difficulty breathing, became faint and collapsed. Paramedics were unable to revive her.

    James Moulder, General Manager for Murcury Energy, said the company restored electricity to the house on Wednesday after learning of the woman’s death, and that the grieving family had spent a night without power.

    Mr Moulder expressed his “deep condolences” to the family, and said the company was checking reports that it had been warned Ms Muliaga needed power for the oxygen machine.

    “We were simply unaware that loss of electricity to the household was putting a vulnerable customer at risk,” he said.

    “More than one disconnection notice had been sent to Ms Muliaga’s address over a six to seven week period,” he said.

    State-owned Enterprises Minister Trevor Mallard said: “The correct authority to investigate this and sort out the facts is the police.”

    He added the government would expect “full accountability” if the company was found to be culpable.

    Law expert Bill Hodge, from Auckland University, said manslaughter charges could potentially could be filed, depending on what information Mercury Energy had and how it was expressed to them.,,2-2007250085,00.html

    Leftist New Zealand Government Kills Woman

    Wow, where to start.

    First, some accountant at the power company gave the order, not the Prime Minister or her coalition government.

    Second, the NZ government is hardly some Hugo Chavez lefitst regime. The ruling coalition is made up of Labor, Nationalist, Moderate, Green, and Native parties. One coalition party, NZ First, is decidedly right-of-center. Although Labor won a plurality in 2005, no party has a majority. They must work together to keep the coalition intact. ….Sounds like our system could use an injection of that kind of teamwork.

    U.S. Attorneys put into place largely to concoct flimsy charges of voter fraud — to smear minority voters and help pass new “Jim Crow” laws in states –(U.S. Attorneys) are still in their positions.

    Meanwhile, states with Republican legislatures are scrambling to pass onerous voter registration and polling place “verification” requirements designed to keeps tens of thousands of Democrats from ever voting.

    The Texas legislature recently tried to pass a “Jim Crow” bill to keep minorities from voting. Their effort didn’t succeed because of the valiant and courageous efforts of Democratic State Senator Mario Gallegos, Jr.

    According to the Washington Post:

    “Against his doctor’s advice, a stooped and feeble state Sen. Mario Gallegos Jr. (D) arrives at the Texas Capitol each day, just to make sure his chamber does not take up a bill that would require voters to produce identification at the polls.

    “And when the rigors of the job start to wear on Gallegos, whose body is trying to reject a liver transplanted four months ago, he retires to a hospital-style bed — donated by a Republican colleague — in a room next to the Senate chamber.

    “From there, he can be summoned at a moment’s notice, should his vote be needed to keep the bill from reaching the floor.”

    Because of the devotion of Mario Gallegos to democracy, the legislative clock ran out on the dastardly Texas Republicans — and their attempt to join in the Karl Rove voter suppression pile-on failed.

    Too bad Gallegos isn’t leading the charge on Capitol Hill in D.C. He has all the guts the Dems on the Hill lack.

Your side of the political fence is so incapable of objectivity that your positions are headed for the slag heap of history. At some point, facts and reason simply have to overcome nonsensical spewing. John McKay, a committed Republican, did what any responsible prosecutor should have done–looked at the meritless partisan claims of electoral fraud and determined there was nothing there. His office had plenty of real crimes, with actual evidence of such crimes, to investigate and prosecute. Going off on a partisan witchhunt because that’s what the insane wing of his party wanted him to do was something that he wisely refused to do.

    Back before Mr. Pope did that rather clumsy bit of misdirection regarding a power company in New Zealand (hey, I know it’s an open thread, but isn’t that a bid rediculous?) he made the comment that Congress couldn’t fire anyone unless they had committed a crime.

    Last time I checked, making a false statement to Congress, while under oath was a crime. (I avoid the word “perjury” as that is a far more difficult crime to prove.)

    (For the lawyers among us, I refer to USC TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 47 > § 1001)


    Violations of section 1001 are punishable by fines (of an amount not noted in the statute), imprisonment for not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisonment for not more than 8 years, or both.

    Oh, and since it’s an open thread, a bit of interesting information for folks here. I was just up at the Navy Exchange in Bremerton, and noticed a rather old man rearranging the books on display.

    He was taking great exception to the fact that Vice President Gore’s book, The Assault on Reason, was not only on display, but was the number four best selling book (and top non-fiction book) throughout the Navy Exchange system.

    The old wingnut got very angry when I put the books back, and I thought he would bust a blood vessel when I picked one up and said that I had been planning on reading the library copy, but since he was so afraid of what the book said, I needed to own one.

    So, wingnuts that believe that the military is all right wing, chew on this. The Assault on Reason by Al Gore is the leading non-fiction book by overall sales in the Navy Exchange system.

    Well, thehim, the cover story in the current Navy Times is about more Sailors being deployed to Iraq to act as security guards, drivers and pretty much anything else that does not require ground combat training (including a few jobs that should, in my not-so-humble opinion).

    The Army and Marine Corps are so stretched that they don’t have the personnel needed to handle those areas, so the Navy and Air Force are picking up the slack.

    Of course, that gives us Sailors carrying M16s and getting killed, right alongside the Soldiers and Marines, often doing jobs that Sailors are not normally trained to do.

You may notice McKay was not going to pursue an investigation, that is commit FBI agents, unless an insider came forward as a witness to confirm wrongdoing first. It was his discretion as the US Attorney to do that, but it also sent the message that corruption is fine as long as no one talks.

    Likewise, Judge Bridges said the 2004 election smelled, but there was no proof of fraud PRESENTED DURING THE TRIAL. That does not mean there was no fraud or malfeasence, just that it was not found during the short discovery period. It took Stefan nearly two years to get the open records requests filled from KC Elections. Stonewall and you’re home free.

    That was it. No other training whatsoever. While Gunner’s Mates and Master-at-Arms may get somewhat more arms training, it is based on repelling invaders to a ship more than anything.

    “How egregious was Gore’s initial claim to have taken “the initiative in creating the internet”? According to many observers, Gore did, in fact, play a seminal role in creating the internet. Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf developed one of the key innovations of the networked world: the TCP/IP protocol that allows data to be sent between computers with incompatible operating systems. Late in the election cycle, these two scientists wrote a memo that gave Gore substantial credit: “We would like to acknowledge VP Gore’s contributions as a congressman, senator and as vice president,” they said, “No other elected official, to our knowledge, has made a greater contribution over a longer period of time.”(Thompson, October 15, 2000). Kahn noted that Gore raised public awareness of the potential of computer network just by coining the term “information superhighway” in the late 1980s (Raasch, March 19, 1999). This term was Gore’s way of carrying on family tradition: his father had sponsored the legislation that funded the interstate highway system (Hughes, April 16, 1999).”

    One thing is certain, though, I cannot think this can help Thompson’s chances if Griffin is indicted. . .and with all the evidence of Griffin’s involvement in voter suppression and ‘caging’ lists presented by Greg Palast I believe John Conyers and Henry Waxman cannot fail to act on this.

    @86 Even though Tim Griffin will no longer be a federal prosecutor, unfinished business remains until he is measured for a prison suit.

    @97 “Fred Thompson has been consulting with Tim Griffin …” to steal the election by suppressing Democratic votes. If Thompson hires this guy expect to see:

    Polling places without voting machines
    Voting machines that change votes
    Mass voter challenges
    Black soldiers disenfranchised
    Election officials routing vote tallying to secret GOP computers

    And of course the NY Times keeps Rosie O’Dennell’s stupid rant alive that stell can’t melt by fire.

    A Notion From 9/11 Is Kept Alive
    Published: May 30, 2007

    Rosie O’Donnell recently took up a theory that one of the buildings at the World Trade Center, No. 7, was taken down by bombs late in the afternoon of Sept. 11, 2001.

    Yet I was first to post on ‘Wipes the gasoline fire in Oakland which melted the steel road girders outdoors!

    And of course Time Magazine fawning over Al Gore.

    He should have named is book “President Gore, America is a Better Place”. But wait a minute… Clinton wasn’t a fan of Kyoto. 95 senators chose not to ratify it in 1997.

    But it’s Bush’s fault – Nancy Pelosi.

    Puddybud Who Left The Reservation spews:

    Both Gore and Senator Joseph Lieberman indicated that the protocol would not be acted upon in the Senate until there was participation by the developing nations. The Clinton Administration never submitted the protocol to the Senate for ratification.

    So how could America be a better place if Robert 3 Sheets Byrd sponsored the killing legislation to Kyoto?

    But it’s Bush’s fault – Nancy Pelosi.

    The more things change the more they stay the same:

    “The class of 41 freshman House Democrats has selected a registered lobbyist to form its political action committee, in what ethics watchdogs and Republicans are calling a contradiction of their promise to end a “culture of corruption” in Washington.

    The custodian of the Democratic Freshmen PAC is William C. Oldaker, 65, whose most-recent lobbying clients include the oil industry, the tobacco lobby, pharmaceutical industries and American Indian gambling interests. Mr. Oldaker also has been removed from several Democratic PACs over conflict-of-interest concerns.

    According to a 2005 report by the Center for Public Integrity (CPI), “When lobbyist William Oldaker sits down to negotiate with a member of Congress, he brings years of experience working for the federal government to the table, as well as the legislative resources of his own firm. He also brings quite a bit of money.”

    CPI has publicly referred to Mr. Oldaker as a “rainmaker,” for his ability to successfully represent his clients’ interests before congressional lawmakers. Many prominent lawmakers, and especially those seeking higher office, form PACs to donate money to other candidates or causes.”

    Remember I posted Hilary Clinton the Socialist.

    I had to dig a little but here’s what she said in 2004:

    “”Many of you are well enough off that … the tax cuts may have helped you,” Sen. Clinton said. “We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.””

    re 112: Let’s put this in terms an idiot (you) can understand.

    If you have two children and one is much larger and older than the other one and the larger one takes ALL the toys, wouldn’t you, on behalf of the smaller child, redistribute the toys, giving the smaller child a fair share?

    109 I’m willing to give Thompson a pass on why he chose to drop out of politics. It can be devastating to lose an adult or near-adult child. I’ll betcha he’d be more than willing to sit down and talk with Cindy Sheehan.

    Back when we were first starting to spiral into post-911 lunacy, some of my more shrill-voiced friends were talking about how the neocons wanted to roll back the clock not just to before Roosevelt’s New Deal, but all the way to the 14th Century. Now Al Gore’s written a book that makes a very clear and plausible case for that.

    Headlice loocie@112: Is Emily Litella you newest name? So we’ll never see Col Biff Col Tucker Headlice Loocie or Harry Poon again?

    How is two children and toys the same as getting back tax money YOU PAID INTO THE SYSTEM? Oh, you want to give a tax refund to people who don’t pay? Oh, you want to perform wealth distribution? What she said was socialism 101.

    You are an IDIOT. You are a READ IDIOT!

    You tell Hilary Clinton to keep your tax refund. I’ll take my and reinvest it in the economy!

    Tuor spews:


    No, I wouldn’t. Life isn’t fair, and the younger sibling needs to figure out how to get toys from the larger because in life, there are always going to be people who are bigger, richer, stronger, more powerful, or otherwise on top. If you want ot get ahead, you need to learn how to deal with such people, and how to get what you want regardless.
