Here is an example of someone who thinks that her clothes just end up in the shop for her to buy. She thinks that any Trademe purchases fly into her letterbox by pure magic. And I’m convinced she thinks all the food in the supermarket is grown and manufactured ‘out the back’.
She also thinks people should have jobs, but no way of getting to those jobs, back, or even move about while carrying out those jobs like dropping off blood samples to the lab, deliver meals on wheels or install solar panels somewhere.
The Green Taliban are the real enemies within. The people who want to ban new roading because they live in a Utopian dream where nobody actually needs transport and 3D printers and 3D printer supplies magically materialise exactly where needed.
We’re also not allowed to drive to stadiums to watch sports, or just the other team’s home field to play. We’re not allowed to take our boats to the harbour, or drive to the forest or national park to go for a walk or tramp.
All new immigrants are expected to use matter transporters. We are having difficulty building enough houses, there are calls for more houses, but once they are built, people must remain absolutely stationary.
I think the Greens are so disengaged from reality that they simply can’t recognise the hypocrisy they spout every time they open their mouths for another bite of Colonel Sanders tasty chicken.
