    Nothing, its just the commie supporting media trying to get some dirt on Muller! I like him because he seems like a real man that won't take any of Jacindas crap! Go National!!!

    The words on the hat are not the issue.
    The hat has taken on a new cultural meaning.
    It now means, I support Donald Trump style politics.

    Which many see as immature and ineffective, to put it very kindly.

    Another example of a tainted symbol, is the ancient sun wheel symbol.
    All about life and progress,
    however, the swastika can't really be worn anymore.

    Todd and Nikki have had a bad start and they can only get better. National can rebuild and while their election chances are slim hopefully they can win enough seats to avoid a landslide and NZ going down the rabbit hole for the next 3 years.

    Nope.

    I just wouldn't advise wearing it on your hat if you were trying to get elected.

    Not a crime.
    Probably a badge of honor in some parts of America.
    Yes, just people looking for something to pick on.

    lol.

    Well, to be fair, the fact that silver was a global currency at the time, combined with the way china was sucking it out of the rest of the world at an incredible rate, almost forced surrounding Empires to come up with some sort of product that many chinese would be interested in.

    Pity that it wasn't something more harmless, like Tea for example.
    Of course you need to look at the East India Company records too.
