Is it just me or does John Key look like enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau?
Maybe. But whats more revealing is that they were both interred as national heros in the Panthéon in Paris, in 1794, 16 years after their deaths.

It’s just you. Not something I would get to concerned about though.

I imagine their “Confessions” would be the same. Actually, John’s would be a bit more boring.

It is too difficult to think nobly when one thinks only of earning a living.

They are related,distantly, through both his mother and father. It’s a very incestuous family, the Key family, they are Freemasons, and are related to the Rockefellers, Astors, and Morgans.

They both have a Mona Lisa smile.

I’ve always been more worried about the striking similarity between these two: http://i.imgur.com/DGGdX.png

Is it just me or does Tony Woodcock with his new haircut look like Herc from The Wire?

They are also both seven foot tall blood-drinking lizardmen.

Look, I’m no Aucklander, but is it just me or does John Afoa look like Cutty Wise from the wire?

They have the same first name!

Clunking Fist is correct.

Are you suggesting John Key conflates the General Will with what is right?

“Are you suggesting John Key conflates the General Will with what is right?”
Bingo! Although, tbh, I like to do that myself.

Isaia Toeava = Poot
I was going to say Chris Jack = Prezbo, but it’s a bit weak when I do a side-by-side. Some of these are good:

Hey Betty what are your views on the US Federal Reserve? That should do the trick.

Physical resemblance aside, he seems to have basically the same political personality as Tim Pawlenty.
Comment by Hugh — March 31, 2011 @ 6:37 pm

The US Federal Reserve is controlled by members of the Freemasons and other alleged satanic groups. It holds two trillion dollars (exact figure not known by me at this present stage, I’m not a magician) of gold in reserves, as well as combined trillions of dollars in cash reserves, bonds, derivatives, foreign currencies, and other such investments. Yet the United States is crying poor because it owes ten trillion dollars. For more on this, I suggest that http://www.michaelmoore.com is an interesting site to visit.
China keeps on buying US bonds and it is being made to look like they are the only reason why the US economy may bounce back. But what foreign organization owns the most covert investments in China? The US Government and its multiple subsidies.
People openly know about the Yen carry trade. But the fact of the matter is that the US is investing in China (and has done for some time now) and China is investing back in the US. This is somewhat of a carry trade in itself. The difference is that they are not doing it for discrepancies in interest rates, they’re doing it (originally) to prop up China, because China has the largest population in the world.
When the time comes for a full scale world war (which could result because of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan), the US and China will pull together and win against Russia.
New Zealand needs to secure backing from the US and China immediately because the people of Japan will be cashing in their bonds now and it won’t be pretty if the New Zealand Government does nothing or little about it.
But New Zealand is where some people may want it at the moment. I allege that Key is a pawn in a high-stakes game, employed to aid in the ruining of the New Zealand economy and get a bail-out from the IMF, a subsidiary of the World Bank, owned by the ‘Jews’ (Rothschilds, still not a Jewish name).

“New Zealand needs to secure backing from the US and China”
Thankfully, we are half way there, as one of these friends has given us a free trade agreement.
I think you are right about Key. Ruth (not part of the plan) got GAAP accounting into government accounts. The current crop at the IASB, under their paymasters the European Commission, are attempting to get IPSAS used in the place of IFRS. This will have an immediately effect, and we should see the house of cards come crashing down. Under the guise of concern about mercury, I have been having all my fillings replaced with gold.

“I have been having all my fillings replaced with gold.”
Your teeth will be the first against the wall when crunch time comes, count on it.
