Last Second Christmas Post

In our family, there is almost always somebody who, late on Christmas day, suddenly leaps up and says “Oh! I had another present for _____, but I forgot to wrap it! I’ll be right back!” It almost never fails. This year it was the opposite; when my wife and I got done wrapping everything, we had one present left over. How did that happen? Who should we give it to?

So in the late afternoon, we brought it out and asked the crowd “Who doesn’t own a microplane?" Predictably, my SIL goes “What the !@#$ is a microplane?” So she got it. This is a family of cooks, so we all have several of them. Best woodworking tool that ever made its way into the kitchen drawer, they now come in several shapes and sizes and different gratings. But the thing started out as a wood rasp. Seriously. And is perfect for hard cheese, nutmeg, stick cinnamon, and so forth.


So anyway, here’s a last minute bit of Steve Crowder, that was hiding in a corner of my inbox.  And with that, I bid you goodnight.

Carex Secta

This is for the Perry supporters out there -

Carex secta





Oh shut up already Sharpton.

Cyperacae carex secta is a grass that grows in clumps. It’s a tussock, a sedge weed, similar to rushes. It just happens to have had an unfortunate common name for many many years. They grow in boggy areas the world over ... carex secta happens to be a New Zealand native, but it has first cousins (eg carex virgata) in every temperate marshy area, and they all look pretty much the same, and most of those in the USA have shared the same name for several hundred years now. To name a hunting camp after them really tells you more about the land than it does about the people who hunt there. This little “unknown” fact is pretty much common knowledge to anyone who lives anywhere near a bit of wetlands and is not a brainwashed product of government schools.

In a large part of the southwest United States, another whole family of tussock grasses grow in drier areas. One of these is Muhlenbergia rigens, also known as deergrass, which puts down deep roots and sends up long strong stems. Native Americans favored it for basket weaving. Guess what the white settlers called it?

Once again, the media is out of touch and out of control.

Yeah, what he said

“Political correctness is the sullen revenge of the spiteful, intolerant, and ill-willed dunce upon all the liveliness in this world. It is no more than the humorlessly insincere resort of minds so mediocre that, for them, a revival of Stalinism is preferable to the pain of a glimpse of self - it is the last sigh of the beast that Nietzsche identified as res-sentiment.”

Some Very Dark Numbers

Since it’s tax time again, I’ve been spending a lot of time using the old spreadsheet. I’ve had the TV on in the background, listening to the news people go on endlessly about the latest budget BS. Oh joy, after 2 weeks of wrangling, the wonderful federal legislature managed to cut just about 1% off the projected budget. The problem is that a huge portion of the budget is based on borrowed money, and unless it is the double super secret plan of our elitist superiors in DC to borrow and borrow and borrow from other nations until they beggar the world, and then claim bankruptcy, we’re pretty much screwed. Hey, I’ve long wondered if that isn’t their actual energy policy - suck the world dry before using our own assets, so it wouldn’t surprise me if that was their fiscal policy. We’d just better keep enough functional nukes on hand though if that’s the case. I hope it isn’t.

We’ve heard a lot of talk about “mortgaging our future”. You know what? It’s true. It’s worse than true, if by worse you can conceive of a mortgage that lasts 50 or more years instead of the more normal 30.

So I wondered, just how much of the federal pie goes to pay down the debt? And the current answer is actually impossible to find, because our wonderful Hopey Changey Democrat controlled government didn’t even bother to make a budget for 2010. And here we are in mid-April 2011, and there isn’t a budget yet for this year either. Seems to me like they aren’t doing their jobs. At all. But that’s a rope/tree/some assembly required rant for another day.

We always hear how China and other countries are financing us by buying our debt. Now, maybe I wasn’t listening close enough, but what rate is the USA getting? Prime? Half of prime? Are the wonderful communists in China just giving us the money for free, pay us back when you can, no worries? The hell they are. It’s business, and they’re moving major amounts of paper, so you know the rate is going to be most profitable.

I found two pretty good pages on the budget and where the money goes. Here and here. I know they’re out of date at this point, but as the saying goes ... it’s good enough for government work.

I ran some numbers and they are beyond bleak. The current level of spending, borrowing, and repayment does not even hold the line against the interest accrued on our debt, unless that entire 14.2 trillion dollars was lent to us at 1.73% interest or less. Do you wish you could refinance your home at 1.73%? Oh I bet you do!

So I assumed two possible interest rates: 2.5% and 5%. Then I applied a total Drewsolution, a draconian move that would cause riots and suicides all over. Keeping the tax level the same, I cut the entire federal budget in half. No sacred cows, no special interests, no “uncuttable” mandatory spending. For every dollar they’re spending now, they only get to spend 50¢ under my new plan. And every last cent of surplus taxes goes to paying down the debt, plus the one half of the amount we’re currently paying.

And the numbers absolutely suck.

Cutting the $3.83 trillion dollar budget IN HALF gets it down to $1.92 trillion, and with a revenue base of $2.56 trillion we no longer need to borrow the ONE THIRD of the budget as we are doing right now. So let’s go crazy, send the old folks and the poor folks out to starve and die of horrible diseases, and see what we could do then. I have to assume a stable tax base and no further devaluation of our money. Yeah, that’s unreal, so this is an academic exercise. But it makes the point: this $38.1 billion stuff on the news is horse manure. Passing an amendment to require a balanced budget is horse manure. The one and only way to pay down the debt is to apply something akin to Sharia law for the spenders: if I see your hand with a pen in it writing a check, I get to cut off your arm with a sword. Or, as Nancy Reagan would say, “Just say NO”.

With $14.2 trillion dollars in debt, cutting the budget in half and keeping it at that amount for decades would let us apply $765.5 billion a year to our debt. That’s almost 40% of the new death-by-austerity budget.  But this is what you have to do, this is how you have to live if you find yourself up to your eyeballs in debt. The United States of America does not get to call a Mulligan. We don’t get to say “oops, sorry, never mind”. We owe the money, and a very large amount of it has to be paid back. We’ve been borrowing since 1969, and we’ve only even balanced the budget once or twice in all the years since. The chickens have come home to roost, but they’ve metastasized into vultures. Hungry vultures. The only way to get rid of them is to carve up the dead horse they’re circling and burn it, one chunk at a time. And we have no choice but to stand down wind of the pyre. It’s really going to smell. Tough noogies; it’s our horse so it’s our responsibility. “First, stop feeding the horse” is a Stuck On Stupid Step. It’s a true one, but it only helps to clarify the situation if you’re trying to convince drooling imbeciles who are willfully blind. So, um, Mr. Government? First, stop feeding the horse!!!”

If we got those trillions for only 2.5% APR, and we stick to the plan come hell AND high water, then it would take 13 years to pay the debt down to the “manageable” $8 trillion point. It would take 25 years to pay it all off. And this is with super low interest and a budget that would just about cause a revolution. And absolutely sticking to the plan. I know, I said that already. I’m saying it again because these are completely new words to anyone in the legislature. Stick. To. The. Plan. Without. Exception.

At 5%, it would take 38 years to get the deficit down to $8 trillion. THIRTY. EIGHT. YEARS. It would take 53 years to pay it off. And in all that time the federal budget would not increase by a cent.

And if we maybe borrowed that money at 10%? Don’t even go there. Uh uh sistah no way no how. Talk to da hand! Don’t even consider any interest rate higher than 5.385%, because even under my wildly Draconian plan which puts nearly three quarters of a trillion dollars against the debt annually and does not borrow even a single penny, it can not be done. Even when it’s only compounded annually, the interest on $14.2 trillion is more than the amount my ultra-austerity budget pays if the APR is higher than 5.385%.

There is another way out of this mess. If we pay off our debt in straight dollar amounts, but the US dollar becomes second hand Charmin like the Zimbabwe Buck, then our national debt evaporates, because the money becomes worthless. And the kid pushing a broom at McD’s is earning $275,000 an hour. And we get the whole world off our back ... and our entire nation is bankrupt.

Hey, I hear the Democrats want to raise the debt ceiling again, and that Obama’s latest budget calls for borrowing half a trillion more than he did last time! Sweet. How’s that Hopey Changey shit working out for you?

Letters From Littleton

Another UK TV Witch Hunt

No room for black faces in Midsomer says it’s creator

Long running and “world renowned” television series [Never heard of it myself before reading the newspaper clipping Peiper mailed me] has only featured white actors for 14+ years. When asked, the show’s creator said it “wouldn’t be English” if they brought in non-Caucasians. Naturally, he got suspended for that, and now a big internal investigation is underway. I’m taking bets: future episodes will have more diversity than a “We Are The World” sing-along, and the show will be down the crapper inside a season.

For 14 years, it has found a plethora of ways to kill off unfortunate villagers while remaining remarkably unchanged in one regard: the absence of non-white faces. Now the creator of ITV1’s Midsomer Murders has landed himself in hot water after claiming that one of the reasons the drama series has been so successful is because it is entirely free of ethnic minorities.

Brian True-May said the show was “the last bastion of Englishness” and if its cultural make-up changed “it wouldn’t be the English village”.

His comments, to Radio Times, appalled ITV bosses and he was promptly suspended by All3Media, the media conglomerate that includes Mr True-May’s company, Bentley Productions.

Mr True-May gave the interview to promote the 14th series of the cosy Sunday night drama, which regularly pulls in six million viewers and has been sold around the world.

“We are a cosmopolitan society in this country, but if you watch Midsomer you wouldn’t think so. I’ve never been picked up on that, [huh? what does that mean - no one ever asked?] but quite honestly I wouldnt’ want to change it.: he said.

Asked what he meant by “cosmopolitan”, Mr. True-May, 65, replied: “Well, we just don’t have ethnic minorities involvd. Because it wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work.”

Sorry, but the article is not online. Parts of it are quoted by this pro-diversity and immigration page.

“Suddenly we might be in Slough. Ironically, Causton (the town in Midsomer Murders) is supposed to be Slough. And if you went to Slough, you wouldn’t see a white face there. We’re the last bastion of Englishness and I want to keep it that way.

Lawdy lawdy! I can hear the axeman sharpening his blade from here. You know this old duffer is going to get the chop.

Slough is one of my favorite words because it can be said in three or four different ways and has half a dozen completely different meanings, from the stagnant water in a prairie sink hole to a muddy bog to the act of an old scab sliding off of a wound. By any definition “slough” is rather a dark word, certainly not a light and happy one like “rainbow”, “dolphin”, or “popcorn”. In this case Slough is a town, an industrial center just west of London proper, situated at the end of the runway at Heathrow and half a mile north of Windsor Castle. I think they say it as “slow”, another word with it’s own secondary meaning and dark aspect. East of Maidenhead, north of Runnymede, alongside places with eye-rollingly wonderful English names like Stoke Poges, Wexham Court, and Rowley Wood, you’d think Slough ought to be the absolute Mecca of white people on the planet.  Ought! Alas, aught. Mecca no longer. I gather the town has no “light” aspect to it at all these days, whether the people there are happy or not.

Mr. True-May added: “When I talk to people and other nations ... they love the premise of the show. They love the perceived English genteel eccentricity. It’s not British. It’s very English.” He conceded that many people would consider that “Englishness” in the 21st century should encompass other races. “Well, it should do, and maybe I’m not politically correct” he said, “I’m trying to make something that appeals to a certain audience, which seems to succed. And I don’t want to change it.”

Mad dogs and Englishmen, you know.  Putting a bunch of ethnics in just wouldn’t do. They might all be Brits, but nobody would believe it if they acted all English. It’s a white thing.

And of course after such comment comes the predictable “We’re all appalled. Simply appalled!” reaction by the TV station management. But the real truth is out there somewhere, if you take off your Willful Blinders™ and open your eyes and your mind. The Independent’s resident stodgy white guy Matthew Norman (tie AND vest in his picture, no neck) probably put his own career on the line to opine:

Implanting a black face in Midsomer would be tokenism

The fact is that between town and country there is a colossal disconnect - two Englands unbridged by suburbia and divided by a common language.

A candidate to become the 252nd fatality in the fictional county of Midsomer’s 15-year life span emerged yesterday, although whether by unwitting suicide or capital punishment is debatable. Brian True-May hasn’t been hanged yet, but the co-creator and executive producer of ITV’s Midsomer Murders has been suspended by his production company, pending one of those top-level internal inquiries beloved of media outlets, over remarks concerning the ethnic make-up of his series.
...
This is not to suggest that Mr True-May, any more than the portly Plato of the putting green, is a racist. That accusation depends not on his looks but the words, as confided to the Radio Times, which have “shocked and appalled” ITV management. Referring to the enduring global popularity of Midsomer Murders, Mr True-May sourced it, in part at least, to an “English genteel eccentricity” that would be compromised by the presence in rural villages of dark-skinned people. “We just don’t have ethnic minorities involved,” he explained. “Because it wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work. Suddenly we might be in Slough.”
...
Yet also buried beneath the complacent nostalgism lies the inconvenient truth that he is correct. You are more likely to come across a sex club in an English rural village than an Afro-Caribbean or Asian face. I speak on this with unwonted authority. In the tiny Dorset village where we rent a weekend cottage, we have had a swingers’ club (the sadly defunct Cleopatra’s) but never a non-Caucasian fizzog. ["fizzog"? WTH? Izzat a wog with frizzy hair, ie a black person? {no Drew, it’s UK slang for somebody’s face. Physiognomy} (Oh. Otay den.) {Wut??}]

Whenever I make the drive from west London, it strikes me afresh as a journey as much through time as through space. Here in the crack- dealing tourist centre of Shepherds Bush, early 21st-century multiculturalism seems to work beautifully, whatever David Cameron, a huge Midsomer fan, may think to the contrary. If our road tends towards the lively, that is thanks to the generally white occupants of the two bail hostels opposite. Within 20 doors either side of us are Somalis, Poles, Croats, Bengalis, Lebanese, Jamaicans and doubtless another 20 nationalities. You can walk a mile along the Uxbridge road, that corner of a native land that will forever be Damascus, without seeing an indigenous white face (apart from the bail hostel boys and girls, out and about and up to no good), which is one of the area’s few charms. In 14 years we’ve not come across a scintilla of racial tension.
...
In our village, somewhere between Yeovil and Dorchester, in ethnic terms it clearly is the 1950s. In three years, the darkest face I’ve encountered is my own shtetl-swarthy Ukrainain Jewish one. In the early days I was a little fearful, what with the roof being thatched, and brought perhaps more fire extinguishers than were strictly demanded. There hasn’t been a single pogrom yet.

If a black or Asian family moved in, I imagine they would receive nothing but the welcoming warmth shown to us, albeit possibly tinged with rather more curiosity. About ten years ago, in a village shop in west Devon, my wife overheard a chat in the village shop between two elderly ladies who had heard on the grapevine that a black person had been sighted 25 miles away. It wasn’t remotely nasty. The old girls were simply fascinated, as they would have been by reports of a cheetah loose in Plymouth, by the exoticism of it all.

The fact is that between town and country, there is a colossal disconnection. As anyone who flits between them cannot fail to appreciate, there are two Englands, unbridged by suburbia and divided by a common language. Painting Mr True-May as a fictional ethnic cleanser because he portrays the villages of Berkshire, or Midsomer, as all white is no more than those who love to hunt out offence where none is meant indulging their hobby.

Great Googled Gollywogs! You mean that True-May may be right, and that folks oughtn’t go all Mau-Mau on him? That’s reason to behead him right there!

OTOH, the same online paper immediately ran out to Causton and found that the real town was at least somewhat properly diverse.

But the facts on the ground belie his vision. For one thing, is the last bastion of Englishness seriously not going to have a curry house?

“More than 100 people are from ethnic groups in Wallingford,” said Mr Rahman, a Bangladeshi who came to here in 2006. “It is a nice place to live,” he added.
...
None of the town’s restauranteurs have seen the show.

“When it is on, we are working,” pointed out Abdul Choudhury from the Wallingford Tandoori, a sentiment echoed elsewhere. [ the town eateries are “the nearby Wallingford Tandoori, ... the Turkish kebab shop, the two Chinese restaurants and the Portuguese family who run the chippy.”

Which misses the point on purpose. Blinders off, m’kay? When they film in Causton-pretending-to-be-Slough they’re filming a real town in a pretend way, portraying it along the classic English Village stereotype, fo’ shizzle my nizzle, and that means nuttin’ but White Folks. I bet the camera fill-in shots feature lots of old white guys with dried apple faces wearing funny little hats and wearing heavy tweed jackets that look like they smell of mothballs. The jackets too. The current Ethnic Line may be out past Causton at this point, but Mr. Norman argues that lands beyond the line do exist. And such remarks are beyond the pale, which is a phrase - and a punishment - Mr. Norman must be ironically familiar with.

On the third hand (OTTH), motivation for murder on this show is often rather perverse. Maybe the producers are avoiding the charge of using the old tar brush on them thar ethnics?

The producers operate a strict moral code. Hidden vices provide the opportunity for blackmail and a motive for bumping people off. Simple adultery is too suburban so it must be spiced up with incest and illicit lesbianism. S&M is also practised behind those generous drives. Drug addiction is acceptable, usually practiced by spoilt little rich girls. Midsomer has also fought off an outbreak of witchcraft, sorcery and pagan rituals.

Oh yeah, that’s what they’re doing alright, and for their own protection most likely. They’d be immediately burned at the stake if they featured any Africans doing pagan rituals and witchcraft. That never happens at all. Anywhere. Ever! Except when other Africans go on a murder spree and chop up all their pagans and witches, which happens in every sub-Saharan country in Africa and has been reason for several murders in Europe done by African immigrants. Which is only just, because those pagan witches were out there doing human sacrifices to bring good luck to taxi drivers. Nope, like portraying an actual Middle Eastern terrorist on the NCIS TV show after Season One, such things simply do not happen. It’s like islamic incest and homosexuality. It. Does. Not. Exist. But white people, especially rich ones, can be guilty of anything. Including being white, which is their worst crime. So expect this show to go PC and then to get canceled when the intolerant ethnics erupt after seeing their own portrayed as pervy murderers. Every week for 14+ years. Gosh, that’s stereotyping, that is.

politically incorrect statement causes suspension for tv producer.

Just another one of those damned annoying pol. correct things this country is enamoured of.
Quick. Find a tree and bring a rope. Or at the least, tar and feathers for incorrect thinking and, gasp, saying incorrect things. Out loud. Where ppl can hear. Oh the crime!

We do not have a TV, and if we did we wouldn’t catch this one anyway. Not to our taste, once saw part of an episode a long time ago. Lots of reason for not liking it but , this sure isn’t one of them.

The guy is quite right. Read it and see if you don’t agree. It’s true of this village.

In the 7 yrs we’ve been here (come April), we haven’t seen a single Indian, or anyone from Pakistan or China. Have seen only one black person and that was perhaps three or four years ago, and none since.  And it isn’t due to ppl here keeping anyone out.
They couldn’t if they wanted to.  We see some in town, not too many so far. Speaking of muslims now. They’re here but just not in this village. But the way some ppl talk, and understand this, not just libtards, you would think it’s a crime against humanity if a village only had white folks living in it.  Not only that, there are actually people here, mostly on the left as you’d guess, who insist that places like this should go out and actively seek minorities to move here, in an effort to stay in step with this diversity shit. And trust me. That’s exactly what it is.

The fact of the matter is that most rural villages throughout this country, happen to be populated by mostly white people. It’s just the way things fall out. There are very few if any homes in rural areas that have welfare housing, so that eliminates quite a few.  And mostly, those people just do not seek out rural areas to live in. With the possible exception of gypsies/travellers. But that’s an entirely different subject.

So here … take a look.


Suspended Midsomer Murders producer in crisis talks after revealing he excludes ethnic characters

By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

The executive producer of Midsomer Murders was in crisis talks about his future on the show today after revealing he deliberately excludes ethnic characters.
Brian True-May was taken to a meeting in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes and a further statement is expected to be released later.

Mr True-May, who has already been suspended, refused to comment as he left the house in Great Missenden, Bucks.
The executive producer created a storm by saying he did not use black or Asian people in the ITV drama because ‘it wouldn’t be an English village with them’.

He described it as the ‘last bastion of Englishness’ which relied on an ‘English genteel eccentricity’, claiming it ‘wouldn’t work’ if it suggested there was racial diversity in village life.
Mr True-May told the Radio Times if he had more minority cast members ‘we might be in Slough’.

His comments sparked fury among charities and campaigners and he was suspended by the production company behind the show All3Media. ITV also said it was ‘shocked and appalled’.

But scores of viewers made clear they felt the suspension was a total overreaction and his own co-stars came out in support.
Neil Dudgeon, who has taken over the lead role from John Nettles, said he more than trusted his producer’s judgment.
He said: ‘If people have been quite happy for it not to really change in 14 years, there’s no reason to suppose they’re going to want it to change now.’
Jason Hughes, who plays DS Ben Jones added that he had always wondered whether any Asian or black characters would be brought into the show.
He said: ‘I don’t think we would all suddenly go, “A black gardener in Midsomer? You can’t have that!” ‘I think we’d all go, ‘Great, fantastic”.’

Viewers writing online agreed the producer’s comments were clumsy but pointed out that Midsomer could hardly be seen as a typical English village given that it had such an unrealistically high murder rate.
On the website digitalspy’s chat room, one user called cloudfactory said it was ‘ridiculous’ he was suspended for ‘saying something perfectly reasonable’.

When asked to clarify what he meant, he added. ‘Well, we just don’t have ethnic minorities involved. Because it wouldn’t be the English village with them. It just wouldn’t work. Suddenly we might be in Slough.
‘Ironically, Causton [the fictional local town in Midsomer Murders] is supposed to be Slough. And if you went in to Slough you wouldn’t see a white face there.
‘We’re the last bastion of Englishness and I want to keep it that way.’
He admitted that Englishness should include other races, but added: ‘Maybe I’m not politically correct’.

And then we hear from a muslim rep. on the issue. He makes it sound like it’s ONLY THEM involved. What a surprise that is. Like this is supposed to be an attack on muzzies.

Mohammed Shafiq, of the Ramadhan Foundation, which aims to create a better understanding between Muslims and non-Muslims, said: ‘There is a wider agenda in what he is saying which is worrying for me.
‘To try to wipe us or our presence off television screens is wrong and factually incorrect.’

american airlines suck as they screw old employee out of some benefits for being pc incorrect

Damn. No logic and all political correctness.
The UK, where I am?

Not this time.

Try American Airlines (freekin idiots) in the USA. Even there. I HATE this sort of thing. Don’t you?

Here’s a thought people.

American figured, hey. Here’s a chance to save money cos after 55 years we’ll pay more, he’s old so his health will cost us more in benefits, oh woo-hoo.
Lets stitch the old boy up with homophobia or at the least, bad language.  I bet they don’t really care that much that he used the word faggot. And if they did, they are assholes of the very first rank.

War veteran loses his job after 54 years for gay slur he made while DEFENDING homosexual soldiers’ right to serve

By Daily Mail Reporter

Freddy Schmitt, 82, from New York, was told he no longer had a job with AMERICAN AIRLINES after allegedly using the term ‘faggot’ during a workplace session about ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’.

The company said it did not matter that the World War II veteran was defending gay soldiers’ right to serve and that the context of the comment - ‘Back then a faggot coulda saved my life’ - did not change their decision.

Nor did the fact he has a blemish-free employment record, or the pleas from his work colleagues to give ‘Papa Freddy’, as he was known as, another chance.

Co-worker Jack Sullivan said: ‘The guy is like everybody’s father here.’

Mr Schmitt, a baggage crew chief from Brooklyn, said he simply wants the same thing the U.S. Army gave him six decades ago - an honourable discharge.

According to the New York Post, he made the remark in December and was immediately suspended and then fired after two hearings last month.

He said he wishes he could have stayed on until November when he was planning to retire, so he could leave with the milestone under his belt .

‘It would look nice, going out with 55 years. After 54 years, all I want is to go out in good faith,’ he said.

Mr Schmitt is appealing the decision but it could take months, according to union officials.

Under the terms of the firing, Mr Schmitt retains his pension but loses his health benefits and the travel privileges his wife of 45 years, Viola, enjoyed.

Openly gay, lesbian or bisexual people are currently barred from military service.

‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ is the policy restricting the United States military personal from efforts to discriminate or harass closeted homosexual or bisexual service members or applicants. The restrictions are mandated by federal law

In 2008, President Obama ordered a full repeal of these laws and pledged again in 2009 to the Human Rights Campaign that the ban would be ended but so far it has not come into effect.

New Ann

Now that a new Congress is in session, with promises of starting investigations into this, that, and the other, Ann Coulter opines that the housing mortgage/financial crisis is the thing that really warrants investigation. Especially since all the information is already out in the open, the pieces are already fit together, and all it would take would be some honest work and good press. Yeah, right.

The housing bubble was caused by the democraps, working over nearly 20 years in a seemingly deliberate attempt to destroy the economy. Well gosh Ann, no kidding.

Go, read about the 9,000 pound gorilla in the room that nobody can see, even years after the fact. And don’t forget that all those policies ARE STILL IN EFFECT.

German banker accused of the big ‘R’ … the mob gathers with their pc torches

It wasn’t a “jibe” and I sure didn’t read it that way.  Jeesh. Talk about much ado.  Guy writes something in a book and the folks who wait like a spider in a web just looking for insults, pounce.  I had always thought (wrongly?) that groups did share genes.  Maybe these days not all groups always share the same genes due to cross marriages etc. But I fail to see the insult.  And he was pretty well correct where muzzies are concerned.  He doesn’t want to see his country become something else other then German.  Who can blame him?  The English already refer (with no love) to London as Londonistan. Or something close to that. Shows ya how ppl feel.  They can’t all be racist surely.  And come to think of it, that word has been overcooked and badly used. 

Take a look.  See the link.  What was so bad about what he wrote in a book?  Don’t like or agree with his views? Don’t buy the book.

German central banker under fire for Jewish jibe


By Martin Banks, The Daily Telegraph

A senior German central bank official has suffered fierce criticism after the release of an extract from his book in which he said Jews all have the same genes and Muslim immigrants cannot integrate.

Thilo Sarrazin, a member of the six-man board at the influential Bundesbank, has been condemned by German government officials and immigrant leaders after excerpts from his new book, Germany Does Away With Itself said “all Jews share the same gene”.

In the extracts, published by the Welt am Sonntag, Mr Sarrazin writes: “Jews share a particular gene, Basques share particular genes, that differentiate them from others. The cultural peculiarities of the people is no myth, but determines the reality of Europe.”

Regarding Muslim immigrants, he continues: “I don’t want the country of my grandchildren and forefathers to be in broad swathes Muslim, where Turkish and Arabic is widely spoken, where women wear headscarves and where the daily rhythm of life is set by the call of the muezzins.
“If I want to experience that, I can just take a vacation in the Orient.”

He theorises that if the fertility rate of German “autochthons” remains at the same level it has been for the past 40 years, then population will drop to 20?million, while the Muslim population “could grow to 35 million by 2100”.
Mr Sarrazin, 65, who says his comments are not racist, argues that immigrants from countries such as Turkey depend on the state and bring down the country’s level of education.

Senior German politicians have demanded that Mr Sarrazin step down from his Bundesbank post and resign his party membership of the left-leaning Social Democrats.
Stephan Kramer, of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said: “Whoever tries to identify Jews by their genetic make-up succumbs to racism.” Kenan Kolat, a leading member of Germany’s Turkish community, called on Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, to expel Mr Sarrazin from his Bundesbank post.

Silvio Berlusconi shortlists dental hygienist as political candidate. (score one for eye candy)

I thought I’d start the day, late as it is, with humor.  True, it isn’t so funny to many but hey.  Not so poor Silvio is keeping up the tradition of Italian stallions, or at least the perception, and someone has to do it ya know. It can’t be easy.  Plus, he provide the press with copy and usually that’s pretty funny.

Last week Mr Berlusconi caused another furore after joking that while Italy had succeeded in staunching the flow of Albanian illegal immigrants crossing the Adriatic, he would be prepared to make an exception for “beautiful girls”.

His ex wife sees no humor in his carrying on but hell.  She’s no innocent either. After all, he was married when she was seeing him. He finally left the wife for her and so his fidelity or lack thereof should have been no surprise.  And anyway, he’s Italian.  He has a stallion license.

Not all Silvio’s lassies are stunners however. So he’s an equal opportunity letch.

Silvio Berlusconi has shortlisted his dental hygienist to contest crucial elections next month, despite the furore caused by his attempts to promote showgirls as candidates last year.

By Nick Squires in Rome
Telegraph

The Italian prime minister has spent weeks denying reports that his party would stack its list of candidates with attractive young models or actresses.
But the 73-year-old premier was apparently unable to resist the charms of Nicole Minetti, a showgirl turned dental hygienist who he met when his teeth were being repaired after he was attacked by a man with a history of mental illness in Milan in December.

Despite the furore and the wrath of his wife caused by his attempts last year to promote a string of glamorous women as candidates for the European elections, Miss Minetti is reportedly now on a short list to run as a candidate for Mr Berlusconi’s People of Freedom (PDL) party in Lombardy, northern Italy.

A former dancer who has appeared on various TV variety shows, she graduated as a dental hygienist last November and within weeks was tending to the prime minister when he was treated in Milan’s San Raffaele Hospital for two broken teeth and a smashed nose following the assault on Dec 13.
Hers will not be the only pretty face in the ranks of Mr Berlusconi’s party as it seeks to consolidate its hold on power in the elections in 13 of Italy’s 20 regions at the end of March.
Graziana Capone, a law graduate and model who has been dubbed “the Angelina Jolie of Puglia,” the southern region from which she hails, was recently hired to help mould Mr Berlusconi’s image on television, La Repubblica reported. She had also been touted as a possible candidate in the elections.

A smiling Mr Berlusconi was photographed this week as he presented four women who hope to be elected as regional governors, two of whom have cover girl looks: Monica Faenzi and Anna Maria Bernini.
His penchant for favouring brains over beauty earned him exasperated criticism from the main opposition party.

“Berlusconi chooses candidates more for their good looks than for their experience,” said Anna Finocchiaro, the Senate leader of the Democratic Party. “He’s filled parliament with beautiful girls, albeit competent, but they don’t count for anything within the party.”

But loyalists within the ranks of his party angrily hit back. Margherita Boniver, an MP, told Corriere della Sera: “I’m astonished. You only have to look at the CVs of our candidates to understand that they are people who are dedicated to politics,” said Barbara Saltamartini, an MP who has responsibility for equal opportunities within the PDL, said that Miss Finocchiaro’s remarks had shown “that she is an enemy of women”.

The glamorous line-up invited comparisons with the row which broke out last year when Mr Berlusconi’s party proposed fielding a bevy of actresses, models and reality television starlets as candidates for the European parliament elections in June.

His wife, Veronica Lario, branded the plan “shamelessly tacky” and a week later demanded a divorce after nearly 30 years of marriage.
In the end most of the women were ditched from the line-up and only one, Barbara Matera, 27, a television presenter, actress and former Miss Italy contender, was elected to Brussels.

She revealed that her role model was Mara Carfagna, the former men’s magazine model who Mr Berlusconi made his equal opportunities minister when he returned to power in 2008.
