Health Care Town Halls Turn Violent, Part II

Union Thugs Break Heads In St. Louis

See Gateway Pundit

Obama’s “get in their face” and “punch back twice as hard” statements are triggering violence. SEIU union heavies are instigating violence at town hall meetings. Pelosi, in a typical fit of left wing lunatic projectionist pique, says that peaceful citizens are paid agitators wearing swastikas.

The SEIU is 100% in pocket for Obama. And they are just about the heaviest handed bunch of ne’er do well organizers in the land.

See Michelle Malkin for more.

Now, the SEIU thugs are looking out for The Boss. In Tampa, Florida and St. Louis today, the Purple People turned out to give cover to members of Congress targeted by Tea Party activists and town hall protesters. For the first time, the town hall protests were marked by physical aggression. More on the St. Louis arrests of confrontational Obamacare activists here. (Just like Obama wanted: “In your face.”) This is no coincidence.

Looks like these town hall meetings are a big FAIL all over the country.

Cling to your guns and bibles folks. This is just the beginning, and I fear it is going to get a whole lot worse. I’ve got to go to work now.

Art vs Porn

Somewhere in one of those Terry Pratchett books, Thud! I think, the Keystone Cops pair of watchmen, Sergeant Colon and Corporal Nobbs, are in the art museum, discussing the difference between art and smut. Cpl. Nobbs, a man so odd looking that he carries a certificate that proves he’s human, has been dating a drop dead bombshell beauty who works as a stripper. (cops are cops everywhere in the multiverse!)

Nobby says that his girlfriend, Tawneee, a pole dancer “says what she does is Art, sarge. And she wears more clothes than a lot of the women on the walls around here, so why be sniffy about it?”

“Yeah, but...” Fred Colon hesitated here. He knew in his heart that spinning around upside down around a pole wearing a costume you could floss with definitely was not Art, and being painted lying on a bed wearing nothing but a smile and a small bunch of grapes was good solid Art, but putting your finger on why this was the case was a bit tricky.

“No urns,” he said at last.

“What urns?” said Nobby.

“Nude women are only Art if there’s an urn in it,” said Fred Colon. This sounded a bit weak even to him, so he added, “or a plinth. Both is best, o’course. It’s a secret sign, see, that they put in to say that it is Art and okay to look at.”

“What about a potted plant?”

“That’s okay if it’s in an urn.”

“What about if it’s not got an urn or a plinth or a potted plant?” said Nobby.

“Have you one in mind, Nobby?” said Colon, suspiciously.

“Yes, The Goddess Anoia arising from the Cutlery,” said Nobby. “They’ve got it here. It was painted by a bloke with three i’s in his name, which sounds pretty artistic to me.”

“The number of i’s is important, Nobby,” said Sergeant Colon gravely, “but in these situations you have to ask yourself: where’s the cherub? If there’s a little fat pink kid holding a mirror or a fan or similar, then it’s still okay. Even if he’s grinning. Obviously you can’t get urns everywhere.”

Decorated firearms are the same way, only no cherubs. Usually. Sometimes you just have to know.

Fer instance ...

This is art


And this is art


Although both might be pretty near the limits of good taste for some folks.

And this is porn

Caught Red Handed

Honduras: Zelaya computers had “certified” vote results for referendum that was never held

(see Commie Playbook, page 37)

No English language news service is running this story!

This has been all over the Honduran and Central American press for more than 24 hours but, as Alberto de la Cruz of Babalu Blog points out, no English speaking wire service or media has picked up on it yet.

Authorities seized several computers used by former president Zelaya that contained “official” results of the constitutional referendum that was never held showing his bid to change the law so that he could run for office again winning easily.

Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator’s handbook, these computers, according to the news report, contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya’s favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to. ACORN, I’m sure, is taking notes.

This is the man that the OAS, the UN, and the Obama State Department want the Honduran people to reinstall as their leader.

Here is a quick and rough translation of the above excerpt:

Several computers containing the results of the referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct are seized at the Presidential Palace

The National Directors of Criminal Investigation seized various computers from the Presidential Palace that had recorded the supposed results of the referendum to reform the constitution that the deposed leader, Manuel Zelaya, was planning to conduct on July 28, the day he was removed from office.

The official investigation now deals with the possible crime of fraud and falsification of documents due to the fact that some of the certified voting results had been filled with the personal information of individuals that supposedly participated in the failed referendum that did not take place because of the coup.

One of the district attorneys that participated in the operation that took place this Friday showed reporters an official voting result from the Technical Institute Luis Bogran, of Tegucigalpa, in which the specific number of people that participated in table 345, where there were 550 ballots, 450 of which were votes in favor of Zelaya’s proposal and 30 were against, in addition to 20 blank ballots and 30 ballots, which were nullified.

The seizure took place on the third floor of the building attached to the Ministry of the Presidency that had been rented to the ex-minister of the Interior, Enrique Flores Lanza. The deputy district attorney, Roberto Ramirez, declared this area as a “crime scene” and, although he did not want to provide further details, said that further evidence had been found that could be categorized as crimes of fraud, embezzlement of funds, falsification of documents, and abuse of authority.

Hand, cookie jar, insert. Can we now expect another crow pie dinner from the White House? Numbnuts. Zelaya had the election rigged before it was even held. Tyrant!

More details here, if you can read Spanish.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE.  HAPPY 1 9 8 4 … Should oooeld comraaads beeee forgot ……

You will recall that yesterday I posted something that I found very upsetting. Yeah I know. I find lots of things upsetting.
Anyway ... I posted this.

Police given powers to enter homes and tear down anti-Olympics posters during 2012 Games

I thought that was pretty damn bad and I still do. 

One day last week, or heck it could have been only a couple of daze ago (not trying to be cute. DAZE, as in daze is correct at the moment)
an article appeared in the paper saying that some city councils were placing chips in people’s trash bins, called wheelie bins here, (must be due to the wheels) to not only see if they were mixing recycle with unwanted stuff. Oh No.  They were also attempting to learn what sort of things were being thrown away to determine the possible wealth of the thrower.  I’ll bet they haven’t advanced that far in the USA. Yet. 

Well, when I opened the morning paper today I was greeted with this.  The paper date said 2009 but I think that was a typo. Should have read 1984.
Here ya go.  And I’m certain it will not surprise any of you.  This is what our brave new world has come to.

Councils use bugs to spy on public illegally
Councils and other official bodies are using hidden tracking devices to snoop on the public, a report by Sir Christopher Rose has disclosed.

By Christopher Hope Whitehall Editor
Published: 7:00AM BST 22 Jul 2009


Officials have continued to use the gadgets, which allow them to follow covertly people, despite a warning that the practice is prohibited.

The scale of the secret operations was set out in a report published on Monday by Sir Christopher, the chief surveillance commissioner. He found that the number of official surveillance operations increased last year, despite a government pledge to reduce them for trivial offenses.

Sir Christopher also criticised the Home Office for trying to make it easier for the police to use legally covert surveillance.

“It should not be acceptable that the use of covert powers is made ‘easy’ for any public authority,” he said. It was important that “covert surveillance is necessary, proportionate and carried out in a way which is compliant with human rights”.

Sir Christopher’s report said that the tracking devices could only be used “for the prevention and detection of ‘serious crime”.

Documents released earlier this year showed how, in 2007, the Environment Agency attached one of the trackers to a vehicle in order to monitor suspected dumping of illegal waste. Sir Christopher’s office reprimanded the agency. The mistake was blamed on erroneous advice from the Home Office stating that “affixing a magnetic device to a vehicle on the public highway” was “not a criminal offense”.

I’m not posting the entire article.  You can read it if interested at the telegraph dot com. I’m simply using that story to lead into this one which is even more scary because it appears so much more a matter of the natural order of things, whereas here at least some will and are complaining.

Kremlin gives itself powers to spy on all Russian mail.
The Russian government has given itself sweeping powers to spy on its own citizens after a new decree gave intelligence services unlimited access to read all mail without a warrant.

By Miriam Elder in Moscow

The decree, reminiscent of Soviet-era domestic spying tactics, allows security services – including the FSB, Foreign Intelligence Service and police, as well as customs, drug and prison agencies – to obtain information on senders and addressees from the postal service.

It also foresees FSB agents - the successors to the Soviet-era KGB - setting up monitoring sites at all the country’s post offices.

Kremlin critics denounced the measure as a return to Stalinist tactics of surveillance.

“We are returning to a totalitarian regime,” said Lev Ponomaryov, a leading human rights activist. “It reminds one of Soviet times. And the worst thing is, the people don’t care.”

The communications ministry, which issued the decree, denied it violated the constitutional right to privacy.

“This document carries a technical character,” a ministry spokesman said, denying that security services would see their powers broadened with the decree. “It does not infringe the rights of postal recipients or human rights.”

The spokesman said officials would still need a court warrant to open mail, but there is no mention of that in the decree, published on the ministry’s website.

The decree, which came into force on Tuesday, is ostensibly designed to tackle crime.

It will have a wide reach. Russia is an overwhelmingly poor country outside Moscow and St Petersburg and people rely heavily on postal communications. Email use remains limited.

Freedoms have been severely curtailed under the rule of the Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin, a former spy who briefly headed the FSB. Foreign intelligence activity, as well as surveillance of Russians, have grown under his watch.

Dissent is not suffered and the government has steadily increased its surveillance of the internet as its use grows in the country.

In the latest case, FSB officers on Tuesday opened a criminal case against Igor Averkiyev, a writer based in the Urals city of Perm, for an online article critical of the Kremlin’s strategy in the republic of Chechnya.

Mr Averkiyev was accused of inciting extremism. He was already investigated early last year for an article comparing Mr Putin to Hitler.

Say What??

Crazy Junta In Burma Trying To Get Nukes??

Oh brother. Here we go again. Geez, if there’s one country even more whacked out than North Korea, it’s got to be that Looney Tune in “Myanmar”. You know, the tinpot tyrant who wouldn’t accept any international aid after the typhoon smashed half his country, because all the aid workers were spies bent on his overthrow? Yeah, him. Whack-a-doodle-dipshit.

SEOUL, South Korea — The recent aborted voyage of a North Korean ship, photographs of massive tunnels and a top secret meeting have raised alarm bells that one of the world’s poorest nations may be aspiring to join the nuclear club — with help from its friends in Pyongyang. No one expects military-run Burma, renamed Myanmar, to obtain an atomic bomb anytime soon, but experts have the Southeast Asian nation on their radar screen.

“There’s suspicion that something is going on, and increasingly that cooperation with North Korea may have a nuclear undercurrent. We are very much looking into it,” says David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, a Washington, D.C. think tank.

The issue is expected to be discussed, at least on the sidelines, at this week’s ASEAN Regional Forum, a major security conference hosted by Thailand. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, along with representatives from North Korea and Burma, will attend.

Alert signals sounded recently when a North Korean freighter, the Kang Nam I, headed toward Burma with undisclosed cargo. Shadowed by the U.S. Navy, it reversed course and returned home earlier this month.

It is still not clear what was aboard. U.S. and South Korean officials suspected artillery and other non-nuclear arms, but one South Korean intelligence expert, citing satellite imagery, says the ship’s mission appeared to be related to a Burma nuclear program and also carried Scud-type missiles.

This is the ship that the destroyer John McCain was shadowing, right? Brinksmanship on the high seas.

Hey Navy - how about a heavy duty torpedo that also carries broadband radio jamming gear? Use a sub to find your target, Fire One! Fire Two! and each torp releases a jamming buoy 10 seconds before impact. The buoys run for 3 hours, generating white noise with a 5 mile effective radius on all frequencies, then shut down and sink.  At a depth of 200 feet they self destruct. Annoying NorK freighter? What annoying NorK freighter? We don know nuttin bout dat.

‘Evil destruction’ of a happy family.  Read this and watch as a blood red curtain descends

Has the fuhrer state finally come to Britain?  Should we be shouting Seig Heil now?

OK, so maybe I might be a tad over the top but wait.

See if you can read this story without becoming totally pissed off big time in sympathy with this mom and dad.
I could hardly believe what I was reading.  And why should this bother me so much?
I think the answer might be my sense of fair play and justice and utter hatred of the kind of ppl I call, Hitler’s Little Helpers!
Freeken butt-wipes.

It just festers and bother the hell outta me and similar happens here on a regular basis.
It’s beyond me how this sort of thing can happen and take so long to resolve and in fact this case is not finished yet.
Fuckin’ commie/nazi fruitcake bastards.

Time for my blood pressure meds.

‘Evil destruction’ of a happy family
A system involving social workers, police and courts took a child away from loving parents for no apparent reason

By Christopher Booker
Jul 2009
Two weeks ago I reported as shocking a story as this column has ever covered. It described how a loving family was torn apart when the parents were arrested by police on what turned out to be wholly spurious charges, so that their three children could be taken into care by social workers. As reported on another page, it now seems this awful episode has come to a happy ending.

However a new case has lately been surfacing, if anything even more shocking. This also involved the arrest of two parents and the abduction of their child by social workers, in a story so bizarre that, at last week’s Prime Minister’s Questions, Gordon Brown was asked about it by the family’s MP, Charles Hendry, who has long been concerned with the case because the mother is a vice-chairman of his local Conservative Association. The family’s horrified GP says that, in 43 years of medical practice, he has never “encountered a case of such appalling injustice”.

I first planned to describe this case in April, but was pre-empted by the draconian reporting restrictions on family cases, which, for reasons which will become tragically clear, have now been partly lifted.
The story began in April 2007 when “Mr Smith”, as I must call him, had a visit from the RSPCA over the dog-breeding business he ran from the family home. He had docked the tails of five new-born puppies – a procedure that had become illegal two days beforehand. Unaware of this, he promised in future to obey the new law.

Three days later, however, at nine o’clock in the morning, two RSPCA officials returned, accompanied in cars and riot vans by 18 policemen, who had apparently been tipped off, quite wrongly, that Mr Smith had guns in the house.

Armed with pepper spray, they ransacked the house, looking for the nonexistent guns. The dogs, released from their kennels, also rampaged through the house. When Mr Smith and his wife, who was three months pregnant, volubly protested at what was happening, they were forcibly arrested in front of their screaming five-year-old daughter “Jenny” and taken away. Two hours later, with the house in a shambles – the dogs having strewn the rabbit entrails meant for their dinner across the floor – social workers arrived to remove the crying child.

Held for hours in a police cell, Mrs Smith had a miscarriage. When she was finally set free, she returned home that evening to find her daughter gone. It was the beginning of a barely comprehensible nightmare.
Her husband was charged with various offenses connected with the dogs, including the tail-docking, but was eventually given a conditional discharge by a judge who accepted that he was “an animal lover” who had not been cruel to his dogs.

Far more serious, however, was that the social workers seemed determined to hang onto the child, now in foster care, on the sole grounds that they had found the house dirty and in a mess (the “animal entrails” played a large part in their evidence). This was despite the testimony of a woman Pc (who had visited the house a month earlier on a different matter) that she found it “clean and tidy”. Two hundred horrified neighbours, who knew the couple as doting parents of a happy, well-cared-for child, were about to stage a protest demonstration when they were stopped by the police, on the social workers’ instructions that this might identify the child.

For more than two years the couple have been fighting through more than 100 hearings in the courts to win their daughter back. From a mass of evidence, including psychiatric reports and tape recordings made at meetings with her parents (only allowed in the presence of social workers), it is clear she has been desperate to return home. It is equally clear that considerable pressure has been brought on the child to turn her against her parents.
One particularly bizarre psychiatric report was compiled after only an hour-long interview with the little girl. When she said she had once choked on a lollipop, this was interpreted as signifying that she could possibly have “been forced to have oral sex with her father”.

After Mrs Smith alone had been subjected to four different psychiatric investigations, which came up with mixed findings, she refused to submit to a fifth, and this apparently weighed heavily with the judge who last December ordered that “Jenny" should be put out to adoption.

In the Appeal Court 11 days ago, Mr Justice Bodey ruled that, because the mother had refused that fifth test, indicating that the parents put their own “emotional wellbeing” in front of that of their child, the adoption order must stand. When this judgment was reported, an independent social worker, who had earlier been an expert witness in the case, wrote to Mr and Mrs Smith to say he was “horrified” to learn that Jenny was “not back in their care”, having assumed for over a year that “she must have been returned home”.

Their equally horrified GP, saying that he had never “encountered such a case of appalling injustice”, wrote “the destruction of this once happy family is in my opinion evil”. So shocked was their MP, Mr Hendry ,that he last Wednesday took the highly unusual course of raising the case with the Prime Minister at question time. Numerous others who know the family well have expressed similar dismay. One neighbour, herself a former social worker, whose own daughter often played with “Jenny”, said: “I worked with children in social services for 25 years and I have never seen anything like this. It is disgusting.”

What is clear in this case, as in so many others, is that a system involving social workers, police and courts in what is an obviously very close alliance should yet again have left a happy, loving family destroyed for no very obvious reason. Almost equally alarming is the way that system manages to shield itself from the world, through reporting restrictions which it claims are designed to protect the children but which too often end up by protecting only the system itself.

Another case of anti-gun, anti-Christian profiling?

Shreveport LA

If the back window of your truck looks something like this:


You too might get pulled over by the cops, taken out of the vehicle, and have your (legally carried in the vehicle) guns confiscated before the cop even asks you your name!

Profiling at it’s worst ... and the Cedric Glover, mayor of the city of Shreveport Louisiana is perfectly fine with it.

This story is making the rounds, so read the story at the source, with the videos, press coverage etc. Then make up your mind.

Don’t forget that there has been trouble with that police department before too (links at end of the post).

But do get a load of Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover - looks like we’ve got another little dictator brewing; his cops “have a power that ... the President of these Unites States does not have” - the power to suspend your rights, on the spot, because they feel like it.

I’d say either Glover and the top cops in that town need to go, right the hell now. This can not stand. But it will. And this is only the tip of the iceberg, really. Just the tip.
The camps are coming, people. It’s only a matter of time. And not a long time either. 2 years, tops.

Oh look ... I’m being Fair and Balanced: Mayor Glover responds. He may have a point, or maybe two points, but he’s still an arrogant jerkwad.

Honduras: Obama is an Idiot

Let’s listen to the people there, watch as they follow their own laws; do not just automatically side with the other Marxist dictators in the Western Hemisphere:

Sometimes, the whole world prefers a lie to the truth. The White House, the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and much of the media have condemned the ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya this past weekend as a coup d’état.

That is nonsense.

In fact, what happened here is nothing short of the triumph of the rule of law.

These are the facts: On June 26, President Zelaya issued a decree ordering all government employees to take part in the “Public Opinion Poll to convene a National Constitutional Assembly.” In doing so, Zelaya triggered a constitutional provision that automatically removed him from office.

Constitutional assemblies are convened to write new constitutions. When Zelaya published that decree to initiate an “opinion poll” about the possibility of convening a national assembly, he contravened the unchangeable articles of the Constitution that deal with the prohibition of reelecting a president and of extending his term. His actions showed intent.

Our Constitution takes such intent seriously. According to Article 239: “No citizen who has already served as head of the Executive Branch can be President or Vice-President. Whoever violates this law or proposes its reform [emphasis added], as well as those that support such violation directly or indirectly, will immediately cease in their functions and will be unable to hold any public office for a period of 10 years.”

Notice that the article speaks about intent and that it also says “immediately” – as in “instant,” as in “no trial required,” as in “no impeachment needed.”

Octavio Sánchez, a lawyer, is a former presidential adviser (2002-05) and minister of culture (2005-06) of the Republic of Honduras.

Cuba Condemns Honduran Coup…


Cuba condemns Honduras coup as “criminal, brutal”
Sun Jun 28, 2009 6:48pm EDT

HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba on Sunday condemned the military coup in Honduras as “criminal, brutal” and demanded the immediate return to office of deposed leftist President Manuel Zelaya.
The Honduran army ousted Zelaya and exiled him on Sunday in Central America’s first military coup since the Cold War, after he upset the military by proposing an extension of his four-year term in office.

“I denounce the criminal, brutal character of this coup,” Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez told a news conference in Havana.

Zelaya is viewed by Cuba’s communist leadership as a leftist ally and former Cuban leader Fidel Castro had expressed backing for his efforts to hold an unofficial public vote on Sunday to gauge support for his plan to hold a November referendum on allowing presidential re-election.

“This coup has removed a legitimate and constitutional government simply for wanting to carry out a consultation ... in Honduras there is only one constitutional government, one constitutional president who should return immediately without conditions to the palace,” Rodriguez said.

The Cuban foreign minister also denounced what he called the violent treatment by Honduran troops of several foreign ambassadors in Tegucigalpa, specifically those of Cuba and Venezuela.

Earlier, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Honduran soldiers took away the Cuban ambassador and left the Venezuelan ambassador on the side of a road after beating him during the coup. The Cuban ambassador was later released.

Rodriguez said the Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan ambassadors in Tegucigalpa had been seeking to give diplomatic shelter to Zelaya’s Foreign Minister Patricia Rodas when a band of Honduran soldiers, their faces hooded, had tried to take her away. He said he was extremely concerned for her safety.

Chavez on Sunday put troops on alert over the coup in Honduras and said he would respond militarily if his envoy to the Central American country was kidnapped or killed.

Rodriguez said there were 84 people, including diplomats, women and children, at the Cuban embassy in Tegucigalpa and said Cuba was “ready to defend the integrity of our embassy”.

(Reporting by Marc Frank, Editing by Pascal Fletcher and Philip Barbara)

I’m sorry but Cuba has and the Castro’s have lost the ability to judge anything as criminal and Brutal.. everything points that while military rule may be bad, considering the currently ousted Honduran President was aligned with Chavez and Castro, anything is better then him staying in power.....

443 Days To Go?

Gee, this seems familiar somehow, doesn’t it?

Britain Demands Release of Embassy Employees in Iran

Iranian authorities have detained several local employees of the British Embassy in Iran, a move that Britain’s foreign secretary Sunday called “harassment and intimidation” as he called for their release.

Iranian media reported Sunday that eight local embassy staff were detained for an alleged role in postelection protests, but gave no further details. British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said the employees were detained Saturday, but did not say how many were taken into custody.

The detentions signaled a further hardening of Iran’s stance toward the West which has become increasingly vocal in its condemnation of a crackdown on opposition supporters.

Iran has accused the West of stoking unrest, singling out Britain and the U.S. for alleged meddling. Last week, Iran expelled two British diplomats, and Britain responded in kind. Iran has also said it’s considering downgrading diplomatic ties with Britain.

On Sunday, the semi-official Fars news agency reported that eight local employees of the British Embassy in Tehran were detained for what was described as a “significant role” in unrest after the election.

Well Gordo, whatchu gonna do now?

Chavez says US sought to assassinate him. this belongs in the , “oh if only” catagory.

If memory serves, didn’t he make this claim a few years ago also?

2009-06-04 Caribbean-Latin America
Chavez says US sought to assassinate him
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has charged that he eluded a US intelligence plot to kill him, in a move likely to pile new pressure on already uneasy ties with the United States.

Chavez, appearing on state media Tuesday for the first time since walking out in the middle of his own television marathon days earlier, claimed he ducked an assassination plot in El Salvador where he was to have attended the swearing in of its new president. “The information was very specific. It was all ready to take place, they were going to carry out an attack against me on arrival in San Salvador,” Chavez charged.


He insisted the alleged plan aimed to launch “one or several missiles at the Cubana jet that was readied for the trip” in Caracas. Chavez, the closest regional ally of communist Cuba, said he received information on the plot from Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.

He did not immediately elaborate. But he claimed “Venezuelan coup plotters went to San Salvador two weeks ago. I know them. They are the ones who have sworn they would kill me.”

CIA: Chavez did not accuse US President Barack Obama personally, saying US intelligence activities operate outside the president’s authority. “I am not accusing Obama. I think the American president has good intentions,” Chavez said. “But over and above Obama, there is the CIA, and all of its tentacles.

I have no doubt US intelligence services are behind this.” Referring to a Venezuelan fugitive, Chavez claimed “Luis Posada Carriles’ people” also were behind the alleged plot and urged Obama to extradite him.

I can’t remember what newspaper I cut this out of.
Tried finding it in the three weekend papers online but some newspapers don’t make everything easy to find.
Anyway ... No matter what country you’re in as you view this, I’d be willing to bet it could apply there as well.

At the moment here in the UK, there is a great outpouring of very real anger as over the last nine or so days, the papers have exposed a scandal in govt. of staggering proportions.

I did a post of only a few things a few days ago, there just is no space here to post all of it.
imageMPs (Members of Parliament) have been caught fiddling their expenses and doing something called “flipping” homes.  Buy a home with taxpayer money, use taxpayer money to fix it up, then sell for profit and keep said profit.  That’s the easy as I can make it explanation.  And that’s the least of it all.

In one case, a member claimed £125,000.00 for his office.  EXCEPT ....  his office turns out to be ....


One member had the moat (YES, MOAT) cleaned at his country estate. The taxpayer picked up the tab.

The list is loooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggggggg.
There’s even a charge that some may have employed fictitious staff.
One member spent £8,000.00 on a fancy TV.  Do the math people.  What’s the current dollar pound ratio. You’ll get dollars for a better picture if you don’t think eight thousand pounds sounds large enough. On a freekin TV.  Like the taxpayer should have to buy his TV to begin with.

Understand this also folks .... not EVERYTHING they did was illegal because THEY WROTE THE RULES.  Unknown to the public. And many are now saying that hey, maybe we overstepped a bit but we weren’t breaking the rules.  The public isn’t buying that, nor should they.

One Asian member built a house in her homeland (I think it was India) and was also claiming expenses for an empty home here she never used.

Another thing.  Ministers here are entitled to homes that are called ‘Grace and Favor’ residences.  They do not actually have to use them if they’d rather have something of their own. BUT ... if they aren’t willing to live FREE of charge in homes provided for them, then they should damn well pay for the homes oif their choice with their own damn money.  Not the taxpayers.

Something else to think about as well and I should mention it as well.  An awful lot of these people are very,very wealthy in their own right.
So the idea that if we have really wealthy folks at the top, there might be less temptation for them to fiddle public monies, then someone who is poor and hungry.  Yeah well, better have another thunk.  Greed is greed is greed.

Tell ya what the real shame of it all is too.  These MPs and ministers actually believe they have things coming to them. They honestly believe they are, entitled.
The most telling reaction from most of them isn’t necessarily shock.  No.
They are truly surprised and stepping all over themselves saying sorry.  But it’s clear they’re only sorry they were all caught.
This is not over yet by a long shot.
Stay Tuned.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  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
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

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.
