pc outrage, as train conductor tells passengers, ‘beware gipsies and pickpockets’

Soon as I saw this, even before I finished reading all of the morning paper, I knew it had to be shared,
What a bunch of phoneys.

I think his comment should be seen as a public service announcement.

I’d be greatly willing to bet that most of the “anger” is nothing more than one or maybe two pol. correct schmucks, who really aren’t angry but think they should be.

What was racist about the comment?  And btw, it was something you’d be warned about at many train and bus stations by tour guides on the continent.
And may remind the readers, it only takes one complaint by one idiot who says he or she is “offended”, to launch a police investigation.

Fuckin people today are total loons I swear they are. And worse of course are complete idiots who buy into this and are in positions of authority.

Pickpockets be aware, are a continuing and growing menace on this side of the Atlantic.  And Roma Gypsies lead the pack, training their young to carry on the family (and cultural) tradition.  They are worthless slime, they pollute the very air more advanced cultures must breathe.  But the very first group that ought to be deleted, are the pc ass-wipes who defend them, as well as the dupes and fools like the people mentioned in the story below, who take it upon themselves to be, “offended”.
I don’t want them offended. I want them graveyard dead.

Anger at train firm’s gipsy jibe: Passengers react with disgust after conductor’s comments as service pulled into Telford

· London Midland service warned passengers of ‘gipsies’ in Shropshire
· Conductor also told people ‘beware pickpockets’ at Telford Central station
· Gipsy Council have branded the comments ‘racist’ and ‘unlawful’

By Daily Mail Reporter

Train passengers were astonished when the conductor told them to ‘beware of gipsies’ as they pulled in to a station.

The London Midland service was stopping in Shropshire on Saturday when the announcer said: ‘Now approaching Telford Central. Beware of gipsies and pickpockets.

‘Many passengers and residents reacted with disgust at the offensive comments.


(How many were the many?  Two? Three?  A guess? One and a half ? )

Father-of-three Mark Peaker, 47, from Telford, said: ‘I couldn’t believe what I was hearing – they have not only used a derogatory term they have managed to offend an entire town.
‘Somebody in a professional role should not be insulting places while they are working.

‘I’m all for them having a sense of humour but this was not funny at all and I hope he is disciplined.’

The Gipsy Council today called for the matter to be taken up with the police and branded the remarks racist.

Bill Kerswell, a spokesman for the council, said: ‘This is unlawful, it is a racist comment.
‘It is the same as using any offensive word relating to homosexuals or people of colour.

‘I would think it is a police matter and I hope they take it up and look into it.’

A London Midland spokesman said the operator had been unaware of the incident but had launched an investigation, adding: ‘We do not tolerate any sort of comment of that kind made by anyone on our trains.’

This bmews reader, is what this country has sadly become. I hate to see it and hear it.  Wanna guess what the next generation is being filled with in schools?

Happy St Patrick’s Day

feeding the leprechauns

image

Drew sneaks in at the last minute with something for St. Patrick’s Day. Saints preserve us, he forgot all about it until he got to bowling league and realized his error of wearing a red shirt. In a sea of green. Oopsie. But hey, this isn’t an Irish area, I’m not Irish. I’m not even Catholic, so the various saints are a bit lost on me.  But I did partake in the American tradition of boiling the daylights out of a slab of corned beef brisket and then cooking a head of cabbage in the water until it was palatable. No potatoes, no carrots, no Harp or Guinness. Just a big wet slab of meat. I like corned beef, and at this time of the year they go on sale for next to nothing. So I stock up. Got 4 this year and froze 3. If I had the money and the freezer space, I’d buy a couple dozen and eat it every other week. With horseradish sauce.

Ok, so corning a bit of meat is a form of brining. Like making a ham. Soak the thing in salt water and it cures the meat, and drives off a lot of the water. I think. So why is it, that when you boil one up, half the weight of the meat disappears? If it’s half dehydrated by corning, shouldn’t boiling it make it heavier? I did a 3.5lb one, and when it was done there was barely meat enough to serve 4, which means it was nearly too small to satisfy 3. When you make whiskey, the stuff matures in a cask and about a third of the contents evaporate through the staves over the years. This is called the Angel’s Share. So maybe the missing seasoned brisket ought to be called the Leprechaun’s Share.

So all the meat is gone now, and of course there’s still a bowl of cabbage left. Which is quite tasty, but usually goes for want around here once the meat is done. Maybe the grocery store hasn’t marked up the leftover ones yet.

I guess I’m supposed to use this post as an excuse to put up pictures of a smiling Irish beauty. Oh fein, I can do that ...

Somebody Official Finally Said It

BAD MATH




image

The theory that the missing Malaysia Airlines jet was hijacked and diverted—possibly to Indonesia—to be used as a “weapon” in a future attack gained traction Monday from the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, told Fox News that the two most plausible scenarios at this stage are that Flight 370 ran out of fuel and crashed into the Indian Ocean, or that the plane has already landed “somewhere in southeast Asia” as part of a terror plot.

“It could have landed somewhere, filled with explosives and then sent somewhere else to cause some great damage, and I think we have to look at all possibilities right now,” McCaul told Fox News.

Next step will be for Captain Obvious to do the math ... without passengers, the payload of this airplane is about 47,000 kilograms. That’s 47 kilotons METRIC tons, m’kay? 103,000 lbs. And then 45,200 gallons of fuel.

1 X  image 

= ( 52 X  image + 9 X  image )

Put bluntly, this airliner can carry cargo mass roughly equal to twice the bomb load of a B-52. And 9 tanker trucks full of diesel fuel on top of that. Yeah, let’s let the media put “weapon” in quotes. Because that’s there just to scare people.

everyone has rights except ….

Once upon a time in a more civil place in time, (ok so it wasn’t perfect) people would have been ashamed to fess up to this kind of thing.  Of course, in another world, there weren’t the outlandish welfare handouts to almost anyone who demanded them as, “a right”.  These days folks are happy to let the world know what trash they are.  In fact, often they are proud of it.
This is one such case. 

Feckless father who has EIGHTEEN children by TEN women and hasn’t worked in 20 years claims council is violating his human rights - by refusing to give him a six-bedroom house

· Peter Rolfe, 64, says town hall has ‘duty of care’ to upgrade his family
· He has not worked for 20 years, supports children aged 1-19 with benefits
· Claims one room in four-bed house covered in mould, one too small
· Councillor claims Mr Rolfe ‘operating system to his own advantage’
By Inderdeep Bains

Peter Rolfe, 64, says the town hall has a ‘duty of care’ to upgrade him and his large brood to a six-bedroom home on the Isle of Wight.

And as if that isn’t bad enough, considering there are many more like he and this brood who are being paid per child, and all of them expect it as a ‘right’, consider this other problem faced by this country.

On the run, the foreign killers and rapists that Britain can’t throw out: 750 criminals simply disappear after being set free

· More than 750 foreign criminals are walking the streets after jumping bail
· Released from detention under human rights laws and then gone on run
· Among those at large are violent criminals, including rapists and killers
· Burglars, robbers, violent thugs and drug dealers are also walking streets
· Home Office is refusing to identify criminals due to their ‘right’ to privacy
By Jack Doyle, Home Affairs Correspondent
Among those at large are serious violent criminals, including 11 rapists, at least two killers and several child abusers and arsonists.
The previously unseen figures show the total also includes six burglars, 26 robbers, dozens of violent thugs and 76 drug dealers.
The Home Office is refusing to identify the criminals by name because to do so would breach their ‘right’ to privacy.

source for more

Well I guess that makes sense of a sort. I mean after all. If you’re gonna rob, rape or kill someone, you don’t want the act to be too public least an ID is made. Can’t have that so lets fall back on the rights thing.
I don’t see how a people can be made safer on their own streets, when victims and potential victims apparently have fewer rights than the criminals. And it sure does seem that way.

EU pushes to stop US from using European cheese names like … Parmesan.  And Feta.screw the EU

The meatheads at the EU want to make American cheese makers stop using names we’ve been using for at least a hundred years.
I never knew this but ... apparently Parmesan cheese isn’t simply the name of cheese. Oh no. We are now told it’s actually the name of the region where that cheese comes from, and so the shit heads at the EU want Wisc. makers to quite using that name. And stop using the Feta name as well.

Sometimes I get so damn pissed off at those fucks I think, we shouldda let the Germans keep the damn place and good luck to em cos there ain’t nobody at home there.  OK,OK. Extreme, just frustrated, pissed off and nobody to hit and probably wouldn’t anyway cos I’d only get arrested and being an American ...aw nuts!  I really don’t like that place, or at least I don’t like the bureaucratswho run the show.

Here ... read this. Am I over reacting ?  I see things as we cave in here just a little and there just a little til ...
Oh yeah. And I don’t much care for the UN either. Never have.

Whine and cheese: EU complains over impostor American feta
EU pushes to stop US from using European cheese names like feta, gorgozola and parmesan


By Raf Sanchez, Washington, Bruno Waterfield in Brussels

The cheese makers of rural Wisconsin wouldn’t usually spend much time worrying about the European Union.
More than 4,000 miles from Brussels, they are too busy producing an annual 2.6 billion pounds of cheese and fending off challengers for the title of cheese capital of the United States.

But now the EU is a regular topic of anxious conversation among Wisconsinites, who proudly refer to themselves as “cheeseheads”.

“Europe has become this spectre looming over us,” said Kathy Martin, owner of the Hillbilly Hollow goat dairy in Conover, a town of just over 1,000.
Wisconsin’s fears stem from an EU push to prevent American dairy makers from using what it says are specifically European names of cheese varieties.

The EU argues that names like feta, parmesan, gorgonzola and others are “geographical indicators” linked to specific European regions and Americans should not be allowed to use the names even if they are made in the same way.

The plan would give the cheese varieties the same protections that prevent Californian sparkling wine from being called champagne or Canadian whiskey labelled as Scotch.

“‘Salty white cheese’ doesn’t have the same ring to it as ‘feta’,” said John Umhoefer, executive director of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association.
He said that many family-run cheese makers were still using recipes brought over from their ancestors in the 1800s and faced potential bankruptcy if forced to abandon those names.

“These small family businesses are an endangered species and need to be protected,” he said.
European sources told The Telegraph that the issue of cheese names are “a real problem” as the US and EU try to negotiate a transatlantic free trade pact worth more than £120 billion a year.

In a rare moment of bipartisanship, more than 50 Republican and Democrat senators wrote to the US trade negotiators urging them to reject any EU plan “that would restrict in any way the ability of US producers to use common cheese names”.

“Can you imagine going into a grocery store and cheddar and provolone are called something else?” said Pat Toomey, a Republican senator who spearheaded the effort.

The EU has already successfully closed some foreign markets to what it deems the impostor cheeses. American cheese makers are unable to sell Parmesan in South Korea unless they re-brand it and Washington fears that Europe may use free trade agreements to spread those restrictions.

Brussels’ cheese regulators have shown at least some ability to compromise in the past.
In Canada, where 91 per cent of feta is made locally, the EU trade deal allows it to be sold as long as the packaging “does not evoke Greece” with the Greek alphabet or ancient ruins and is clearly labelled as Canadian feta-style of feta-like cheese.

Around 1,200 regional food names - like Parma ham, cognac and sherry - are protected in the EU under legislation to “identify a product as originating in the territory of a particular country, region or locality where its quality, reputation or other characteristic is linked to its geographical origin”.

“It’s so absurd it sounds like a Monty Python sketch,” said Abby Morgan, a Pennsylvania cheese monger, as she imagined EU bureaucrats scrutinising US cheese labels.

CYBER HIJACK?

Is missing Malaysian jet the world’s first CYBER HIJACK? Chilling new theory claims hackers could use a mobile phone to take over the controls

· Anti-terror expert said plane’s direction could be changed by radio signals
· Speed and altitude could also be changed from device using ‘codes’
· Possibility that it could be made to land using remote control
· Pilot’s friends said he had always been a ‘gadget geek’ at school
By Wills Robinson
A chilling theory suggests the missing Malaysian Airlines plane could have been hijacked using a mobile phone or USB stick.
An anti-terror expert believes the speed, altitude and direction of the aircraft could have been changed, simply by sending radio signals from a small remote device.
A framework of ‘codes’ created by cyber terrorists would also be able to get into the plane’s in-flight entertainment system and override the security software.
It is also believed, once the systems have been successfully hacked, the plane could be landed by remote control.
The theory has emerged as the search for flight MH370 continues to grow, with 25 countries now involved in the rescue effort.
Yesterday, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak confirmed the plane’s disappearance was the result of a ‘deliberate act’ and could have flown as far as Kazakstan.
Dr Sally Leivesley, a former Home Office official, said: ‘It might well be the world’s first cyber hijack.’

Dodging Winter

Weather Veronica

image


The last storm just a couple days ago came up from the southwest and passed over us just to the north. We got cold, and some high winds, but that’s about all. Hundreds of thousands of folks got a foot or more of snow and/or lost power. A real late winter mess. Central NY on up into New England got hammered.

Here we go again. Tomorrow’s storm looks like it will come in from the west and pass just to the south of us. We’ll get some more cold, and some winds, and maybe a dusting of snow, but that’s about all.


image

In bull fighting, dodging the bull to one side or another with only a flourish of the cape while standing still is a movement called a veronica.

I’m hoping we can dodge this latest snow bull as he comes charging by again. Another NJ veronica. Or at least my little red corner of it. Let him chase after NYC’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Olé!
