    NZer of the year

    Candidates for NZer of the year are out, and you can vote. Vote now so you don't complain later if one of the SJW nominees wins. Steve Askin, the helicopter pilot who died fighting the Port Hills fire early this year received my vote.

    Excerpt from the Herald bio below
    " In 2014, he received the NZ Gallantry Star for his efforts fighting in Afghanistan. While stories of his courage and selfless derring-do in fighting the Taliban he was wounded in a five-hour shootout on June 29, 2011 after the Taliban stormed the InterContinental Hotel in Kabul were shared, mum Leslie spoke about true heroes making a difference in people's lives."No mother wants a dead hero," she said. "It doesn't take going overseas and being an SAS warrior to be a hero. It's to do what is right."

    I voted for Steve Askin too and I hope his mother will be the more proud of him should his name come up top.

    It won't of course be a matter of him "winning", as he can benefit no extra from that now. His mother has got it right, in the end it's about "doing the right thing".

    And anyway, the mothers of the other candidates still have their sons and daughters.

    Again I am not on the list. Damn you anonymity! I voted Askin.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
