I think I have invented a new position here at BMEWS.  An Anger Desk. Yeah. That’s me ok.

I may even enter a new category for it. 

I don’t know about you folks, but I just happen to like Kelloggs Corn Flakes.  I don’t give a tinkers damn how much salt or sugar they put in it.
I like it the way comes outta that box just fine.  Oh but no.  The freeken health nazis and other we’ll do your choosing for you health quangos have pressured Kelloggs to reduce the salt content by another 30 percent.  They also say some 14,000 ppl have died due to high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks etc.  But they don’t say what else those folks had in their diets. Anyway, it’s 14,000 out of how many millions upon millions who have no trouble whatever. So I’m PO’d again coz I hate it when some unelected group of do-gooders insist I eat grass and bark instead of what I like.

Kelloggs says that over years it has already reduced sugar and salt by a lot but only gradually so ppl wouldn’t noticed a sudden change in taste. That way they say, ppl get used to the change without even knowing a change ha taken place and the product will still taste the same.  Pretty clever.

Recently, Nescafe altered a recipe for our own good. Right. All the things that gave it flavor were reduced.  The taste difference was immediate and very bland. So we stopped buying it. Even tho the label assured us that it was, “New and Improved.” Yeah. In a pigs ass it was.

I guess the thing that bothers me so darn much is that so many things these days seem to be decided for me. And nobody asked first.


Kellogg’s to cut the salt in its cereals by a third following pressure from health watchdogs

By Sean Poulter

Kellogg’s will cut the salt content of its Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies and other brands by up to a third following pressure from health watchdogs.

The company has previously delayed the reduction of salt levels, claiming customers enjoy the taste it offers.

However, it has now bowed to pressure from the Government’s Food Standards Agency and campaigning health groups to change its recipes.

The FSA says the nation is eating too much salt, which carries a serious health threat.

Average daily salt consumption is 8.6g, which is 43 per cent above the recommended limit of 6g.

The figure is linked to 14,200 premature deaths a year from conditions linked to high blood pressure, including strokes and heart attacks.

Kellogg’s said its decision will remove approximately 300 tons of salt a year from the nation’s diet.

The decision to cut the salt in Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies by 30 per cent will feed through to reductions in other big-selling brands such as Crunchy Nut, Frosties, Coco Pops and Rice Krispies Squares.

Here’s what two people commenting on the subject had to say.

I don’t recall ever voting for ‘Consensus Action on Salt and Health’. What consensus? I’m sure I’m far from alone in disagreeing with their ‘consensus’, which rather undermines the meaning of the word, doesn’t it? No doubt like the National Obesity Forum this lot will turn out to be 70% funded by Whitehall, making them essentially a Govt department in all but socially-responsibly Orwellian-sounding name.

Why not just provide an alternative version and leave the original alone? A sad day for democracy when I now don’t even have a choice over what I want to eat.

eBay Update … eBay Backtracks, says sorry and allows sale of a board game.

eBay Update

eBay says sorry for banning dad’s army game


Yorkshire Evening Post

Auction giant eBay apologised to one of its users today after blocking the sale of a Dad’s Army board game because it could promote racial hatred.
Officials at eBay conceded that the game, based on the much-loved television series and being offered for sale by retired bank official David Davidson, had been wrongly classed as “offensive material” by its checking systems.

A spokeswoman for eBay stressed that more than 100 million items were for sale on the site and that it did everything it could to bar items which promoted racial hatred.

The spokeswoman said: “While we are committed to keeping items that promote racial hatred off eBay, a Dad’s Army board game is clearly not one of these.

“We hope that Captain Mainwaring would have been impressed with our efficiency!”

eBay says sorry

I think the capt. would have given you guys the flat side of his sword.

BTW ... banning items that promote hatred won’t work or make fewer ppl racist. That is not what makes people that way.  Not anymore. Those folks have already made up their minds.  But there are collectors who don’t hate anyone who just are fascinated by a particular time in history and collect memorabilia.  They probably also collect items to do with Ike and Churchill and Monty. I think the closer truth however is, ppl are also drawn to evil even when they personally are not themselves evil.  The whole cult like popularity of AH and the Nazi movement apparently sell more then all the others mentioned.  It’s almost like going to see a horror movie you know will scare you.  I can’t explain it better then that.  According to what I hear and read, books and items to do with the Nazis have not diminished over the years. In fact, interest has grown outside the holocaust issue. But there isn’t any evidence that it has produced more Nazis or turned those who are not so inclined into neo-Nazis.
The liberal left social engineers who get their panties in a wad at the sight of anything associated with that period, need to get their own lives and leave the rest of us alone.  Fat chance of that when companies hire them and promote em all the time.

Just another thing to get pointlessly pissed off about.

I guess this just another thing for me to be pointlessly pissed off about. I can’t understand how people can become this incredibly stupid, but they have.

Unless this show has been seen in the USA on PBS or cable, most Americans won’t know what this is all about. So here’s a link should you be interested.  http://www.dadsarmy.co.uk/

It was a hugely popular and I am told, a very funny show that ran for a long time. It wasn’t my cup of tea and I didn’t get anything from it but then I’m not a Brit.

Anyway, so popular is this show still, after years off the air, there are web sites dedicated to it. (see above) There was even a board game which eBay UK in it’s unfathomable ignorance and dedication to political correctness has seen fit to ban due to Swastikas on the box. No, it isn’t some right wing racist game dreamed up by the BNP or the KKK or some nut case looking to offend ppl.  Read the article.  Jeesh ….

eBAY, YOU ARE BEYOND BEING MERELY STUPID IDIOTS.  YOU HAVE BECOME WORLD CLASS STUPID “FUCKIN” IDIOTS!  You haven’t the brains god gave a rock. You truly are as the man says, MORONIC! 

eBay bans sale of Dad’s Army board game for promoting ‘hatred and racial intolerance’

When Dave Davidson was clearing out some old junk, he thought nothing of selling a 99p Dad’s Army board game online.

Nick Britten

But he was amazed when the auction site eBay refused to let him sell it because it might incite racial hatred and promote violence.
The offending part was a Swastika on the box, modelled on the opening titles of the sitcom which showed Swastikas and Union flags strategically moving around a map of Europe.

imageimage

And despite its apparent family-friendly content, where players attempt to get their platoon to one location on the board, eBay stuck by their decision to ban the auction declaring: “We don’t allow the sale of memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

(Yeah right but I’ll bet ya eBay sells old uncle joe photos and the Hammer and Sickle don’t ya. There’s also a Hammer & Sickle Vodka I am told. Amazing isn’t it, that this ass-wipe, this condom stuffer, can not see that the board game is NOT memorabilia and is NOT associated with any political group. And yet, and yet.  Ppl like this get decision making jobs with large companies and get to decide for everybody else, what is correct and proper to buy and or sell.  )

Mr Davidson said: “I couldn’t believe it when they sent me an email telling me my Dad’s Army board game could insight violence and hatred.

“Its so annoying because any human being with an ounce of common sense can see Dad’s Army is the most harmless TV programme in the world.
“There’s no swearing, sex or violence – it’s not like I’m trying to flog a piece of Nazi memorabilia here.
“I was just baffled.”

He said Ebay was “run by a system, by robots, with no brain who probably just vet the content without looking into anything properly”, adding: ”It’s moronic.

“They allow coins and stamps with swastikas and there are hundreds of novels which are war stories that have them.”
Mr Davidson, from Droitwich, Worcs, discovered his item had been removed from the site last Saturday when he received an e-mail from eBay.

It said his listing breached the company’s offensive material policy and added: “We don’t allow sellers on eBay to list items that promote violence, hatred, racial or religious intolerance, or items from organisations that promote these views.
“We don’t allow items or memorabilia associated with the Nazi Party.”

The ‘Dad’s Army Board Game’ was released in the mid-1970’s when the TV series was at the height of its popularity.
Jenny Thomas, spokesman for eBay UK, said: “eBay will remove listings that bear the marks of organisations that promote hatred and racial intolerance and we are strict and unapologetic in adhering to this policy.”

Peter Oteng, chief executive of the Worcestershire Racial Equality Council, said that there are strict laws about advertising discriminatory material and eBay, as the advertiser, was protecting itself.

He said: “You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”
He added a compromise could have been to advertise the board game without showing the swastika image.

TELEGRAPH

“You can’t joke with this because you are joking with millions of people killed. It’s not a laughing matter at all.  It’s very serious.”

No you bleeding idiot. It is a laughing matter.  It’s a board game based on a TV show you jerk.  No again you ignorant schmuck. It isn’t serious. It’s a board game based on a comedy TV show. Dad’s Army is a British sitcom about the Home Guard in the Second World War. ‘Dad’s Army’ ran for nine years from 1968 until 1977. It spawned a full length feature film, a radio series and a musical stage show.

I think eBay should reconsider their position on this particular subject and sack the ppl involved. Not because of what they did. No. Because they are just too stupid to work for a major company and make decisions affecting other people. They do not have what it takes.

No no no no no no no!

Senate Lifts Federal Debt Ceiling By $1.9 Trillion



The Democratic-controlled Senate has muscled through a plan to allow the government to go a whopping $1.9 trillion deeper in debt.

Senate Democrats needed all the 60 votes at their disposal Thursday to muscle through legislation allowing the government to go $1.9 trillion deeper in debt.

Democratic leaders were able to prevail on the politically volatile 60-39 vote only because Republican Sen.-elect Scott Brown of Massachusetts has yet to be seated. Republicans had insisted on a 60-vote, super-majority threshhold to pass the measure. An earlier test vote succeeded on a 60-40 vote.

The measure would would put the government on track for a national debt of $14.3 trillion—about $45,000 for every American—and it served as a vivid reminder of the United States’ dire fiscal straits.

The massive increase in the debt limit would allow majority Democrats to avoid another vote until after the midterm elections this fall. New estimates released by the Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday show that the U.S. this year could run a deficit matching last year’s record $1.4 trillion shortfall.

To win the votes of moderate Democrats, President Barack Obama promised to appoint a special task force to come up with a plan for dealing with the spiraling debt.

The current $12.4 trillion debt ceiling is expected to be reached in mid-February.

Torches? Check.

Pitchforks? Check.

Axe handles? Check.

Oil? Boiling. Check.

Judge blocks name of player who cheated on wife, MSM knickers in a twist. Boo-Hoo

The headline reads:

Courts mask football star who cheated on his wife.

As usual, no amount of searching on my part and it’s been a long time, finds the damn link to the story. Written by the Telegraph’s “Chief Reporter, it says in print. However, they don’t have the story on line that I can find.  But never mind.  It’s only a line or two by the media and disingenuous lawyers that have me seeing red.

Ok so another guy in sports has cheated.  So?  Outside of nothing more then prurient interest, who really cares? 

When the Woods story was all over the place some weeks ago, there was good reason for BMEWS to mostly ignore the boring tale. Or is that last word spelled another way?  Thing is, how many folks really care about that stuff?

Well, here’s the story with another player, unknown and un-named by court order. And that’s the story. The court order blocking the press from naming him publicly under “human rights” laws.

Newspapers and their lawyers naturally enough have accused the courts of restricting free speech and oh naturally let us never forget the words carved in stone.  The public right to know.  Oh BS!  The lawyers are saying it’s “a privacy law through the back door.” Well good and it’s time has come.  I doubt it’ll last but good for now.
Some may not agree and see this as some sort of first step down a slippery slope. Right?  Well now, here is their argument and I know you will see how bogus it is.
Who are these lawyers and media think they are kidding?  Surely ppl are not really this stupid.  Some yeah, I understand that.  Just those who can’t see thru this hype.

Here’s a tiny bit of what the paper had to say. It’s this line I take so much issue with.

Many sportsmen are able to earn vast sums from image rights and advertising by exploiting their clean-cut public persona.

I say BS to that.  It isn’t true.  What is being exploited is their action on the playing field.  The runs scored or tackles made or passes received or completed or goal posts defended and even bones broken and don’t fans just love to see some of these tough guys get into a scrap.  If someone just happens to have this clean cut image it’s just luck or maybe the real deal but that is not what the fans necessarily pay for.  Dick Butkus once said in an interview that when he hit someone, he wanted them to know they’d been hit by Dick Butkus. And once hit by him they generally stayed down.  I’d seen him play once or 2wice all those years ago.  It’s the rough and tumble of the game and the overpaid guys who perform that get those adverts and endorsements.  Not their image as boy scouts.

Finally, why should the public have any “right” to know who cheats on who and who really cares?  Are we any better off if we do know who this particular player is? 

For once can’t the papers just say out loud, coz we wanna sell papers and sex always sells!  That’s all this is really about.  This argument reminds me of those stores that open on Christmas and Thanksgiving proudly declaring that they are only open for, our convenience. Oh BS again.  That’s crap and everyone knows exactly why they are open. But by saying something else, they really believe the public buys it.  They think we’re all that stupid.
Either that or they think their only customers are liberals. Hmmm. Could be.

Mother ‘not clever enough to raise child’ has baby snatched. Nanny knows best always.

There are all sorts of things to be thankful for I know.  And I am. But I seem to find all sorts of things to be PO’d about. Some things might be minor to all but myself.

image

This thing below got to me to be honest. None of my business I know.  But how do social services know for certain this young lady isn’t up to the task of being a mom?  I think she’s too young it’s true.  But hey.  What’s done is done and she’s had a baby.  Kinda cruel to snatch it away from her.  Why couldn’t they keep an eye on her if they were concerned?  I guess SS is closer to the subject and sees and knows things the readers of this don’t. 

Then I’m angry (again) with FireFox.  I must be the only computer user in the entire world that thinks it often sucks.  Ok, IE may be worse but that isn’t saying much.  I like Chrome a lot but even this browser could be better.  Yeah, so could I.

The damn med is causing major headspliting ache.  So I tried to get in touch with the pharmacy to ask a question, couldn’t find the number but hey. I have a computer so I did a www thing and got their site BUT ... no numbers for what I needed and not even a store number.  So I called their (get this) CARELINE. Care. HaHaHa.  I got someone whose jingelritch was so bad it wasn’t even as clear as engrish. And they were NATIVE BORN I want ya to know.  She kept saying “et” “et” and I kept asking her to say again but slower so she did.
“et” pause “et” pause “et”
and it took my wife to figure out she was saying EIGHT. And I have no idea about the other numbers but wifey worked it out.  So I called the number she gave us AND ....  SORRY, WRONG NUMBER.  Hmmmm, sounds like an old radio mystery title.  But in the end I did get the right number, but never got to speak to anyone, even though my call was important to them.  Screw em.  I got a cup of very good Engrish Hot Chocolate, poured in some cream and Irish Whiskey and almost immediately felt better, except for the stomach pain caused by the booze. And most likely the pill taken at 10 this morning, more then six hours ago.

Ok so here we are, I read dumb stuff in the paper like, New Daddys to get 6 month maternity leave.  Six months?  How the hell did civilization make it all these years without that pc crap?

Who the hell are the dumb ass rocket scientists who design packaging?  Do any of them think? They really must get paid a lot to do the crappy job they have been doing for years now. Idiots! All of em.

Lawyers and MSM .... lying shits that think the public is so damn stupid they can’t see through them and their demands for more “freedom of the press.” I’ll get to that in my next post.
All sorts of things to be pissed off about.

Mother ‘not clever enough to raise child’ has baby snatched by social workers after running away to Ireland to give birth


By ALISON SMITH SQUIRE
Daily Mail

A couple who fled to Ireland after social workers threatened to remove their baby at birth have had the newborn snatched after all.

Kerry Robertson, 17, who has mild learning difficulties, and Mark McDougall, 25, went on the run after British social services said she was not clever enough to raise a child.

But just four days after Ben was born, Irish social workers marched into the maternity ward and forced them to hand him over.

They were told they were acting at the behest of their British counterparts.

The couple, from Fife, Scotland, have been on the run for three months.

In September, their wedding was halted just 48 hours before the service when social workers claimed Miss Robertson was not bright enough to understand the marriage declaration.

Then in November they were told that her ‘disability’ meant their baby would be taken away at birth.

With Miss Robertson 29 weeks pregnant, they fled their house in the middle of the night and travelled to Ireland.

Ben was born healthy and weighing 7lb 3oz last Friday.

Last night Miss Robertson said: ‘When the Irish social workers said I had to give the baby to them, I felt sick.

‘I didn’t want to hand him over and I started crying because I couldn’t believe what they were saying. I thought I had misunderstood.

The New DoubleSpeak

The Obama Lexicon



I’m surprised it took this long to publish, but here’s Ben Shapiro from CNS News, writing about the Obama Lexicon.  About how nearly ever pet phrase is cover for yet another lie.

In order to understand what Obama truly tells us when he speaks to us, it is necessary to grab our Little Orphan Annie Decoder Ring and decipher precisely what he means when he uses his pet phrases. This, then, is a list of his favorite linguistic flourishes—and just what he means when he uses them:

“Hope and change”: Socialism at home, surrender abroad. Obama uses this talismanic formula when he wants to activate his base, which responds to it like a jukebox when you drop in a nickel.

“Let me be clear”: Let me lie to you.

“Make no mistake”: See “let me be clear.”



Sort of reminds me of those Obama drinking games. I hear that they’ve been outlawed, since too many kids were suffering from alcohol poisoning from having to drink every time he said “I”, “me”, or “my” during his speeches.

Which leads me to Obama Bingo, a slightly dated online bingo card generator. You need 24 terms or numbers to make a bingo card plus the free space in the middle. Shapiro gives us 23, so you’ll have to create one of your own, like “opportunity”. Use “me” as the center square naturally. You’ll still get pretty wasted if you drink every time you get a Bingo!, but you might be able to make it through one of Teh Won’s daily talks without winding up in the emergency room.

This Time It’s Not A Joke

Stalin Soda Coming To Market

batbatbat

image

The label reads “Our cause is right - we have won!”

MOSCOW (AFP) – The face of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin will adorn bottles of a soft drink to go on sale next month in Russia, the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The Stalin drinks are part of a special batch of beverages being released to mark the 67th anniversary of the Soviet victory in the World War II battle of Stalingrad, the daily said, citing the company producing them.

The Pivovar beverage plant in Volgograd, as Stalingrad is now called, will make a limited quantity of the lemon-flavoured fizzy drink, alongside two other drinks featuring portraits of famed Soviet World War II commanders.

The head of the beverage plant said he saw nothing wrong with the Stalin drinks, although historians describe Stalin as a ruthless tyrant responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people.



No, they are not making this up. It is not a spoof from Teh Onion. It’s not even an old snarky post by the Kommisar from the old Politburo Diktat blog, which went under a couple years ago, and may or may not be living these days as The People’s Cube. The T-shirt designs seem similar, but what do I know? That design could be some old Marxist propaganda illustration co-opted for modern use.

Yessir, Stalin Soda is a real product. Moral Relativism be damned; anything to make a buck. Or a pun ... no word yet on whether flavors will include Leninade, straw-Beria, ras-Beria, or if drinking several of these will give you the Trotskies. No word yet on whether this sludge will be exported to the West Coast or most universities, where it would be a big seller, especially if they made a Che-rry flavor.


Blog The Other Russia reports that Russian veterans are peeved:

Stanislav Gorokhov, chairman of the Volgograd City Council for Military Veterans, spoke out passionately against the product.

“Before such a reckless step was taken, they should have interviewed the veterans,” Gorokhov insisted. “Really, every one of us has known much sorrow from those times. We think that we have the right to vote. Alright, Zhukov and Rokossovsky, but Stalin – that’s excessive.”

Hey, maybe Hitler Hot Dogs will be next product. Mao burgers the next chi-com-modity? Tse, they taste great on your Tung!

SOTU? STFU!

O - pen thread




In case anyone forced themselves to watch the State of the Union address and feels the need to vent their spleen. Have at it!

image

I didn’t watch it. Instead I caught the premier of the new Caprica series on ScyFy from the other night via the On Demand thingy on my cable TV. It took me most of the first episode to understand what was going on there in future world and it’s virtual reality, but then when daddy zapped his dead daughter’s v-doppleganger to steal her data, I KNEW it was going to go into his company’s RoboCop that is lacking a decent “meta-cerebral processor”. The plot thins ... after 40 minutes. Meta-cerebral processor? “Oh we could while away the hours, conferrin’ with the flowers, consultin’ with the rain. And my head I’d be scratchin’ while my thoughts were busy hatchin’, if I only had a brain.” Yeah, I think we’ve seen this motif once or twice before. wink But I like the “twist”: Christians, or moral monotheists at least, are the rebel underground. This could be interesting.

Michelle Malkin is covering the SOTU, so you can get highlights there. Guarantee that the whole speech is already up on YouTube, and that most online news sites have the transcript available. You know, just in case either you need a good derisive laugh, or your blood pressure is too low.

Africa Sucks

Human sacrifice almost common in Uganda

“Witches" burned throughout Africa



Moving to the 7th century would be a HUGE LEAP FORWARD for these stone agers


A BBC investigation into human sacrifice in Uganda has heard first-hand accounts which suggest ritual killings of children may be more common than authorities have acknowledged.

One witch-doctor led us to his secret shrine and said he had clients who regularly captured children and brought their blood and body parts to be consumed by spirits.

Meanwhile, a former witch-doctor who now campaigns to end child sacrifice confessed for the first time to having murdered about 70 people, including his own son.

The Ugandan government told us that human sacrifice is on the increase, and according to the head of the country’s Anti-Human Sacrifice Taskforce the crime is directly linked to rising levels of development and prosperity, and an increasing belief that witchcraft can help people get rich quickly.

“They capture other people’s children. They bring the heart and the blood directly here to take to the spirits… They bring them in small tins and they place these objects under the tree from which the voices of the spirits are coming,” he said.

Asked how often clients brought blood and body parts, the witch-doctor said they came “on average three times a week - with all that the spirits demand from them.”

Plenty more at this link, as well as a disturbing 15 minute video. And sidebar links to similar articles about Kenya, Angola, Nigeria, Tanzania, Gambia, Guinea, and the DR Congo.

What was that about “all cultures are equal”? No. No they are not. These are at the very bottom of the barrel. And you can’t blame whitey for any of this crap. Not a jot of it. Now, if this news article was dated 1650 that would be one thing. Or maybe even 1840. But it’s not. It’s only 2 weeks old. And none of these areas have been living in total isolation from the rest of the world for the past few centuries. Every one of them was colonized and run by Europeans for the past several hundred years. It isn’t that they don’t know better. It isn’t that the entire rest of the world hasn’t been there for hundreds of years trying to teach them morality. They all have modern technology to some extent. So I can’t accept the “primitive culture” reasoning. There are no primitive cultures by happenstance any more. They are primitive by choice. Animist and animalistic. Barbarism would be an improvement. This isn’t one small isolated group in one area. It’s a multinational horror story, a way of life practiced by tens, if not hundreds, of millions of people. Thankfully it isn’t the entirety of these cultures. At least some folks there are against it. And while some elements of these societies are doing what they can to fight it, in northern Uganda human sacrifice is on the rise.

Blaming mistakes and misfortune on evil spirits and spells cast by witches is common in Africa. Burn the witch doctors alive when things go bad, but run to them with bloody hands when you need some hlep. And as these nations slowly move towards the modern world, providing a blood sacrifice to a witch doctor to ensure the prosperity of your business is becoming frequent. Even the Ugandan government minister of ethics and integrity believes in evil spirits, though he doesn’t approve of the other leaders in his government consulting witch doctors on a regular basis. It’s a mess.

On Trial for Telling the Truth: Free Speech vs Political Correctness in Holland.

Oh boy, there’s lots here on the subject of islam, the Wilders trial in freedom loving Holland, and the text for the prosecution persecution against him. (well they used to love freedom till the muslim immigrants taught em “to hell with freedom.”) Which it looks like the Dutch have taken to heart. Or at least the govt. has.

No way to post it all here, there’s so much. But ALL of it is eye opening and all of it is of interest.  Especially the official document/summons to court of Wilders for having the nerve to speak out and tell the truth as he sees it. Lets not forget, Holland is the country (I have read) that gave the world political correctness.  So it isn’t any surprise that they are going after this one man.

H/T Europe News and Chesler Chronicles from which there are links if you have the time.

On Trial for Telling the Truth: Free Speech vs Political Correctness

PajamasMedia

By Phyllis Chesler

Wilders and Levant Today, You, Me, Tomorrow

As we all know, the bravest man in Europe is on trial for telling the truth. This matter is obscene, and, according to Bruce Bawer, “surreal,” in part because Holland prides itself on its tolerance and commitment to free speech. Ah, but the Dutch do not mean “truth speech” because in the picturesque land of tulips and windmills, not all of Orwell’s pigs are equal. Truth is relative, subjective, ever-changing. Thus, if something is true but that truth offends the most reactionary Muslims — then it is not protected speech; in fact, it is criminalized.

How low can these Dutch dhimmis go?

I have been privileged to meet and hear Dutch Parliamentarian and possible future Prime Minister, Geert Wilders, speak in New York City. Together, with other invited guests of the Hudson Institute, we watched Wilders’ short film, Fitna, which shows terrorist scenes of devastation around the world — we have all seen them on the nightly news. Fitna also has real mullahs reading aloud from the Qu’ran — reading passages that in all truth are contained there. The film, accompanied by a brilliant musical soundtrack, allows us to connect the dots. It does not preach so much as “show.”

Britain is the one sinking ship where all the rats have stayed!  -

This is not the first time I have posted that remark by a Brit now living in France and happy to be there.
This will not be the last time I use his (or her?) quote either, as long as there are judgments made like this one.  At the very least, the very least, this animal should have had his eyes removed minus any pain killer. And oh yeah, he should have been fixed so that his victim would be the very last female he would ever enjoy again. Ever!  Read this and if you are one who really thinks three years is any sort of punishment, then you’re no better then his fuckin lawyer. Who btw, I hope the very same happens to.  We’ll then see how quick she is to take on a like case and defend vermin like this.  Vermin like this have NO need of lawyers. 

Boy, 13, who raped woman in front of his friends is jailed for just three years… because he said ‘sorry’

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER
26th January 2010

A boy of 13 who overpowered a woman then raped her in front of his two friends will spend just three years locked away for his crimes.

Balal Khan - thought to be one of the youngest convicted rapists in Britain - targeted the 20-year-old as she walked home.

He subjected her to a severe beating then screamed at her ‘Do what I say or I’ll kill you’, before putting her through the ordeal of a terrifying sex attack.

Then he stole her bag and phone and even took a call from his victim’s boyfriend to whom he bragged about what he had done.

But after pleading guilty to charges of rape and robbery the teenager was sentenced to just three years because of his age - and because he said ‘sorry’.

A judge at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court lifted a restriction preventing the publication of Khan’s identity after hearing details of the horrifying attack.

The judge heard how Khan ran up behind his victim and grabbed her around the neck as she walked through a secluded area near Cobridge, in Stoke-on-Trent one evening in September last year.

He punched and kicked her as she lay on the ground before raping her.

Robert Price, prosecuting, said: ‘She started screaming and attempted to get to her feet.

‘He responded by punching her in the mouth and knocked her back on the ground.

‘He stood over her and kicked her to the side of her face. He started shouting at her and warned that if she struggled he would “kill” her.’

What is it about Yanks and their trucks?  Scuza but if you have to ask …..

What’s this fellow trying to tell me?  I get the part about not understanding us but “whyaduck?” image

Gee, what’s the problem here?  I don’t own a truck. Never did. Have a friend who had one of those things 8 stories high, needed a helicopter to get into the darn thing, but it was pretty cool to be honest.  I wouldn’t want one but I’ve seen quite a number of them that looked pretty darn good.  Expensive I understand.
I’d rather have a Dusey or a Cord or , oh heck the list is too long.  Basically this fellow’s problem in not understanding is, he isn’t American.  So if his apparent confusion is real, then this is a funny read. But he is no consrv. so be aware of that.  Anyway, what’s with the bow ties he mentions?  I’ve been away too long.  Yeah. And by the looks of things it may be a while longer before I see home sweet home again. 

America leaves me completely baffled. It might just as well be Azerbaijan or Peru

Hugo Rifkind

I don’t understand the first thing about America. I often think I do, but then I read something or, worse, I go there, and I remember that I don’t, at all. Take the Republican victory in Massachusetts. I mean, fine. Whatever. Don’t have free healthcare, then. I still can’t quite grasp why they think it might kill people, or turn the country into Cuba, but never mind that. Instead, let’s talk about the new senator. Lets talk about his victory speech. “I’m Scott Brown. I’m from Wrentham. I drive a truck. And I’m nobody’s senator but yours.”

Here’s a quiz for all you American readers. Can you spot the bit which I find odd? Nope, wrong, we also have people called Scott. Yes, second time lucky. It’s the truck bit.

My general point, I suppose, is . . . wuh? We have trucks, too. We just don’t talk about them much. Is that weird? Are we weird? “When I spoke to the President,” Brown also said in his victory speech, “the first thing I said was ‘Would you like me to drive the truck down to Washington so you can see it?’. ”

Why does he think Obama wants to see his truck? Does Obama want to see his truck? Oh, look, I’m just not going to get it. Don’t even bother. I understand the point of Sarah Palin more than I understand Scott Brown’s truck.

We have a show over here called Newsnight. It’s a news programme, although you guys probably wouldn’t recognise it as one because it sometimes reports on stuff and doesn’t just involve loud men with fake tans competitively stating their hilariously polarised views. They had a feature the other night on the Tea Party movement, anyway, that huge reactive conservative groundswell you’ve got going on over there. The politics of that I could understand just fine. But the people? I didn’t even understand the way they parted their hair.

I didn’t understand their over-sized floral furniture, or their bow-ties. I certainly don’t understand their trucks. I’m not trying to be rude here. I’m just saying. It might as well be Peru to me, or Ghana, or Azerbaijan. Where do you guys get this stuff from? Over here, we base our look on your film stars, your TV stars and your pop stars. Probably our hopes and our dreams, too. On what do you base yours?

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
