"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing"
Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.
Giuliani? Obama? Clinton? Romney? Thompson? Edwards? Huckabee?
I would vote for Walter!
Shiva over at The illustrated P.I.G to islam has an other take on the Bhutto killing.
Please read here.
In sum, there was a time when it was indeed true that Islamic culture was more advanced than that of Europeans, but that superiority corresponds exactly to the period when Muslims were able to draw on and advance the achievements of Byzantine and other civilizations. But when the Muslim overlords had taken what they could from their subject peoples, and the Jewish and Christian communities had been stripped of their material and intellectual wealth and thoroughly subdued, Islam went into a period of intellectual decline from which it has not yet recovered.
Yupp. That sums it all upp I think. How many cars has been constructed by the 1.4 gigazillion muslims? Spaceships? Computers? Railroads, electric light, refridgerators, central heating, Lego, microwave ovens, hifi systems, cell phones, DVD:s, huge breakthroughs in physichs, medicine, chemistry and other hard sciences. How many Nobel prices has been awarded to muslims living and working in muslim countrys? Heck, Sweden with only 9 miljon citizens (today) has 10 times more nobel laurates than the whole muslim umma. And let us just not get in to the Jewish laurates.
But exept from that. With the exeption of the Kurds- who are cultural arabs/muslims- even when not being actual muslims. Every terrorist deed over the past 15 years have been done by muslims!
I'm not saying that all muslims are terrorists- but (nearly) all terrorists are muslims!
A while ago Germany legislated a law forbidding the scientology "church" inside it's borders.
"Scientology works from the base of massive opression, very much like a totalitarian organisation that want's to break the peoples willpower and that's why we have to fight them" (this is a third party translation so it might not be 100% accurate, but the essence of the message is still there I belive)- Ralf Stegner, minister of interior affairs in Shleswig-Holstein.
Recognise something familliar with this definition?
Islam could also be seen as a totalitarian organisation who breaks peoples willpower (individuality)!
But they will not be forbidden- no way no never...
Even though I think of scientology as as much humbug as islam, I find it hard to belive we will ever see Tom Cruise run in to a Starbucks with a bomb belt strapped on him shouting "Hubbard is great!" before blowing himself up.
But in some small screwed up way it would be fun as hell!
Yes the scientologists are brainwashed.
But so are the followers of muhammed!
Yes the scientologists scam a lot of money from the devotees.
But that also goes for islam!
Yes scientologists are authoritorian and totalitarian.
But islam is also that!
Yes scientology is based on the feverish insane rambelings of one sole man.
And that could also be said about islam!
Yes scientologists commits suicide bombings and are rutheless terrorist scumbags- Oh! No they are not...
But islamists are!
Scientology should indeed be banned- but that goes for islam to!
It's christmas time. You can see a big Christmas tree in the background of this music video. It's not a traditional christmas carol excactly. Among others they are singing about "Whiskey and Coca-Cola.
But the thing that really blows me away is the keybordist at the right hand side. He is hrrm... You just got to watch it for yourselves!
Here are Erdjan- Viski Coca-Cola
Sitting here alone on Christmas eve ( which is THE big day in Sweden with presents- Julklappar- and everything). My son is over at his granny's, I was there too earlier today, but as I'm down with the flu (again) I did not want to stay to long because of granny's weakened immune defence (because of the chemo therapy).
I don't really know if that was a wise choise as there is nothing more poisionus than a four year old! But what the heck! My son was'nt sick then and there, and since it's a high risc of this being Granny's last Christmas- it's probably all right after all.
Then there's those with all to much time in their hands:
Christmas shoppers angered by dildos and a rabbit
Some people just cant stop getting "offended" - do they?
But this is kind of cute:
Santa's elves get busy at Sweden's post office
Otherwise it's kind of nice to be alone in the dark- so to speak. There's lot's of movies to watch, and I can freely sip down traditional season alchoholic bewerages. - No I don't mean egg nod (yuck!), but a couple of shots of Salmiakki liqoure chased down with some lagers.
Signing off- for now...
A Danish politician has staked a claim to the Swedish provinces of Skåne, Blekinge and Halland. Sören Krarup, a member of the Danish People's Party, argues that the provinces should be returned to Denmark after 350 years of Swedish rule.
Krarup argues, in an interview with Danish news agency Ritzau, that Denmark's current borders are not "natural". He goes on to claim that large numbers of the population of southern Sweden would elect to become Danish citizens.

Well I would seek asylum there in a heartbeat if they ever would do it- as long as I did not have to speak Danish (it's a bit like trying to talk with a hot potato in ypur mouth) (c;
Sweden would be perfect if Danes ruled!- Oh, they have allmost as high taxes as we do so maybe not after all...
But their Smoorebröd is fantastic!
And start with those of us over 55. Found at Strange Military and copied with minor corrections.
Drafting Guys over 55 New Direction for the war on terrorists.
"Send Prior Service Vets over 55 "
I am over 55 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. (You can't be older than 42 to join the military.)
They've got the whole thing backwards. Instead of sending 18-year-olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join a military unit until you're at least 35.
Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.
Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier is a dangerous soldier. "My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and hungry!" We are impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a while.
An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10 a.m.
Old guys always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, "I'm tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up killing some fanatical son-of-a-bitch.
If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real brainteaser.
Boot camp would be easier for old guys. We're used to getting screamed and yelled at and we like soft food. We've also developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.
They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've known combat vets and they didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the side, nor did I ever do any pushups after completing basic training. I can hear the Drill Sgt. now, "Get down and give me ... er ... one."
Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.
An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the back of his head. These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.
Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten cowards who attacked us on September 11. The last thing an enemy would want to see right now is a couple of million pissed off old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best years are already behind them.
If nothing else, put us on the border and we will have it secured the first night.
Share this with your senior friends. It's purposely in big type so you can read it.
I have a couple of decades left for my 55:th birthday (well really just one and a half) but I totally agree with this one. I can outrun and outsmart most of the eighteen year olds. I have been in the service for 22 years by now- I know how to take a pee in meter deep snow! But I can't get any new missions. Well- it feels kind of funny to be a healthy man in his prime years and being considered "too old". Sigh!
He asserts that "the Islamisation of Europe is one of the consequences of the Islamic revolution in Iran." It would be interesting to hear him explain that statement in greater detail than he does below.
"Iran: Europe will become a Muslim continent, says Khamenei's spokesman," from AKI:
Tehran, 21 Dec. (AKI) - Europe will eventually become a Muslim continent, according to a representative of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
"In a dozen years, Europe will be an Islamic continent," said Rasul Jalilzadeh on Friday as he was speaking to the basiji, a voluntary organisation in the capital Tehran.
"The Islamisation of the European continent is imminent and this step favours the arrival of the Mahdi," he said, referring to the 12th imam of Shiite Islam.
Shiites believe that the Imam Mahdi, who disppeared as an adolescent, will return to bring an end to chaos and bring universal justice.
Rasul Jalilzadeh believes that "the Islamisation of Europe is one of the consequences of the Islamic revolution in Iran" in that "the messages and values that this revolution has transmitted to the Europeans, to convince them "to abandon their current faiths and convert to Shiite Islam."
Hop to it, Eurodhimmis.

“We must be open and tolerant towards Islam and Muslims because when we become a minority, they will be so towards us.”- Jens Orback, Democracy Minister in the previous Social Democratic Swedish government.
When we become a minority! Hmm- When we become a minority! There aint gonna be no debate. It is not a matter of if we we will become a minority- it is a matter of when! According to Social Democrates (That as it happens, now is bigger in the polls than all three center- right alliance parties together). Sometimes, when in a bad mood, I even start to believe that the Swedes really are not worth saving. But were will I go then?
Don't they understand that they- the politicians- are shuffeling the Europeian people down a slope towards dhimmitude? Of course they do! They just don't care. The left is only caring about short term gratitudes. They know where their wotes are coming from- and they are importing them en masse.
Jingle bombs (Movie)
107 arsons have been aimed at schools in Malmö during the past six years. Not one person has been sentenced for the crimes (if the perp is under 15 years of age they automatically walks free- something that criminal- and other- gangs take advantage of).
For those of you who read Swedish, here is the link.
Firemen who try to put out the fires are often met with hail of stones by "youths". Police have to travel in twos- one patrol car just to protect the other when dismounted.
The election in May of 1997 of Mohammad Sarwar, a Pakistan-born Muslim, to British Parliament was hailed as a momentous event in British history. Taken as a sign of cross-cultural tolerance, Sarwar’s success was seen by many as an important milestone on the country’s road to becoming a truly multicultural society. Eager to assert his Muslim identity from early on, Sarwar took the oath of office on the Koran, bucking a centuries’ old tradition of pledging allegiance to the Queen. Ever mindful of the sanctity of that Holy Writ, Sarwar insisted that the book be placed inside a protective envelope so as not to be accidentally "touched by one not of the faith." Ten years on, Mohammad Sarwar has announced his intention to resign his seat. His decision comes after a two-year long campaign of death threats and abuse that made him fear not only for his own life but also for those of his children and grandchildren. Many will be surprised to learn that this campaign of intimidation was not carried out by some native racists or extreme British nationalists, but by Sarwar’s fellow Muslims. But we can only fully appreciate the full import of this affair when we learn what has so enraged his co-religionists. Read it all over at The Front Page Magazine Who ever that is surprised, stand up right now, look for the most painful place in your house that you can run in to AND GO FOR IT! When will people learn? I don't mind over people having a faith- as long as the faith has interchangible common rules with democrathic and humanistic values, But when it doesn't - I just feel ready to pick out my trusty old G3 assault rifle, just to make a point! Just kidding, I would'nt do that. Because I'm civilised!

Sweden will increase its aid to the Palestinians this year and in 2008 to more than $200 million dollars, the government said on Monday as a large donors' conference opened in Paris.
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt said the Scandinavian country would increase its planned aid to the Palestinian people over the next two years by 90 million kronor ($13.7 million) to 1.37 billion ($209 million).
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas at the conference urged the international community to step up support to the Palestinians or risk a "catastrophe", as he appealed for $5.6 billion in aid.

OMG! We are activelly supporting a murderous fanatical regime and we plan to extend the "aid" to them! I... I... I... i'm out of loss of words!
How the friggin' frugg (that's a FUCK for you sensitives) are the palis going to support theselves? When the Israelians had control over the areas they could support themselves by constructing- amongst others- large computer controlled greenhouses. Constructions that in a matter of days after the palis got controll of them was plundered, ruined and later used as fronts for building weapons smuggeling tunnels in to Israelian soil.
How stupid are we? The palis in the Gaza strip could right now be setting up a midterrenian paradise beach resort and just gobble in the tourist money. But noooo. Why should they do that when all they have to do is fire off some more quassam rockets in to Israel, aimed exlusively for civilian residences (because they can't even get that right!)- and by doing so get rewarded with even more "aid" from Europeian countrys.
Well I'm all for it- in a way. Let's "send" them a couple of hundred Excaliburs flying in instead. Thats the kind of "aid" I want to see being given away. 166000 dollars worth of it every time!
The palis did not get 5,6 billion- they got 7,4 billions instead. HO HO HO!
Inga Lanz, a former parlimentary politician for "Vänstern" (former vänsterpartiet kommunisterna- the left party communists) is lifting 33 792kr (aroumd $5460) a month since 1988 for not working!
She's a healthy and able woman,but explains her non- ability to actually make an honest living with that "Now I have the chance to paint and communicate telephatically with animals. Horses are the easiest ones, then dogs and then cats."!
An other former parlimentar member; Vivianne Gerdin, of the Center party (center- right), laughs outright when she gets the question. "Do you really mean that I should go out looking for a job?" She has a garuanteed salary of 38 980kr a month for the rest of her life- as long as she does not get any other employment!
And who are paying for these peoples guaranteed pension salaries? Well, it's not the politicians- that's for shure!
These are two exaples of people under 65 that I have to provide for. Frikkin' hippies is what they are! Get a hair cut and a job for crissake! NNNnnnnnnngggggh!!
I just watched through "The Kingdom" Starring the Oscar awarded actor Jamie Fox and one of my favourite actors, Chris Cooper. It's absolutely worth the 110 minutes of attention, even though the ending is a bit cheezy- even by Hollywood standards.
Watch it on a cinema near you, rent a DVD or just grab it here. (That is of course prohibited that you don't want to be a criminal- in some countrys- which I'm absolutely not!)
…On the night of her death, Tina’s parents express anger on the tape that she was at work, then seem not to believe that she was at work at all. Then Tina’s father says: “Here, listen, my dear daughter, do you know that this is the last day. Tonight, you’re going to die?”
Tina responds: “Huh?”
Zein Isa replies: “Do you know that you are going to die tonight?”
The girl’s mother asks her questions about items in her schoolbag. In the midst of her conversation with her mother, Tina begins to shriek in fear.
“Keep still, Tina!” says her father.
“Mother, please help me!”
“Huh? What do you mean?” the mother says.
“What help?” the mother responds.
Tina screams, and Maria says: “Are you going to listen? Are you going to listen?”
Screaming louder, Tina gasps: “Yes! Yes! Yes, I am!” then coughs and adds, “No. Please!”
The mother says, “Shut up!”
Tina continues to cry, but her voice is unintelligible.
“Die! Die quickly! Die quickly!” the father says.
The girl moans, seems to quiet, then screams one last time.
“Quiet, little one! Die my daughter, die!” the father says.
Tina was stabbed six times in the chest with a boning knife, which pierced her heart, one lung, and liver, investigators said.

Pope Benedict XVI has launched a surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology.
The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.
The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.
His remarks will be made in his annual message for World Peace Day on January 1, but they were released as delegates from all over the world convened on the Indonesian holiday island of Bali for UN climate change talks.
The 80-year-old Pope said the world needed to care for the environment but not to the point where the welfare of animals and plants was given a greater priority than that of mankind.
"Humanity today is rightly concerned about the ecological balance of tomorrow," he said in the message entitled "The Human Family, A Community of Peace".
"It is important for assessments in this regard to be carried out prudently, in dialogue with experts and people of wisdom, uninhibited by ideological pressure to draw hasty conclusions, and above all with the aim of reaching agreement on a model of sustainable development capable of ensuring the well-being of all while respecting environmental balances.
"If the protection of the environment involves costs, they should be justly distributed, taking due account of the different levels of development of various countries and the need for solidarity with future generations.
The really funny thing here is that tyhe pope in his youth was a member of Hitler Jugend! So by Charles Johnsons way of reasoning it must mean that there are a billion nazi catholics out there qc;
Even more funny is that this guy is the head honcho of a religion, that belives in burning bushes and virgin births. And he demands "Firm evidence"! (Hat tip to HAX)
At my sons preeschool/kindergarten there are a mix of nationalities. Recently a new kid started there and he is probably Somalian or atleast I know that they're a muslim family, because I often happen to drop off my son at the same time as they do, I say "they" in the widest meaning of the word- because I've only seen the missus once- walking three meters behind her husband. She was that time instructed/forced to wait outside of the premecis while her husband left off their son. Of course she was wearing the top to toe dress.
What caught my attention about them was that whenever I met the husband in question he never met my eyes. He never greeted me- which is considered costumary. I did not understand why. Until now!
The quran explicity tells muslims never to greet a non-muslim before they greet them (as a sign of inferiority.
So this morning I tried a little experiment. I greeted this man first- and what do you know- he actually looked me in my eyes and said "Hello".
So now I'm officially a dhimmi!................................... NOT!
The Bali Climate conference that is going on right now has gathered some tre thousand people from all over the world, all of the flown in from different places, mainly from EU and USA.
Yeah! Good work! That will not emitt any CO2 at all...
What about using existing technology? Why not have video conferences?
Gore alone emitts more CO2 than a small town with all his travels.
And these are the people considered to be the creme de la creme!
BALI! Well the climate there are better at this time of the year than in Sweden. The beaches are nice- I've heard- and they have those really cheap but fancy drinks with little umbrellas and a dinner plate of fruit in them. But that could of course have nothing to do with it...
The sad part is that many people buy this BS for truths.
I have learned my son to turn off the light in a room he is leaving, and by doing so I have done more for lessening CO2 emittance than Gore ever will! And there is still no evidence what so ever that CO2 is behind global warming!
Now I think I'm going to look for a plane ticket to Thailand. Can Gore then can I!
Is "Being a stupid MF" a job description for politicians?
Apparently I was wrong. There's not 3 000 people attending- it's 10 000 (including staff members) and another 5000 from NGO:s.
I thank them all. Their combined emissions of CO2 might be (a small portion of the) trick to save us from the "iceage" climathologists warned about was coming only 15 years ago! :-p
Live as you teach- and teach as you live!
Now I think I'm going to do the best I know for the climate and go and turn on another light!
And where does the money come from? (Remember that money is just another form of energy- and every single watt of energy produced and used is emitting that fair share of CO2- directly or inderectly).
Well the answer to that is simple. It's you and me that for the most part are paying for the climate whackos travels in form of direct or indirect taxes.
I whish Gore would pay for a trip to Bali for me... When he does, I promise that I will turn off that extra lightbulb.
A very interresting interwiew with a supposidely "moderate" muslim. She makes some very good points though. But I will give you here an excerpt of the interwiev:
Islamic history is important to study and analyse. It wasn't always like this. Islam was frozen in the middle ages: it's time to defrost Islam. The Quran is a magnificent historical record. Even Imams couldn't possibly understand the depth of it. Millions of us read the Quran in Arabic...that doesn't mean we under stand what we read, we are dependent on translations. That's why I call it the biggest con of the century...interpretations and translations imported into this country for 40 years were more to do with Jihadism than with a peaceful Islam that gave equality to women and was plural. There is an American woman, Laleh Bakhtiar, who is a convert and isn't extreme...she still wears jeans - she doesn't wear the hijab as most do, she has interpreted the Quran in English and has had death threats. I'm waiting to read her translation. Jihadists don't want women translating the Quran or women becoming Imams...Yet the Prophet had a woman Imam in his first mosque who preached where men and women weren't segregated.
Islamists have almost written Muslim women out of history and their natural rights. I do acknowledge that the Quran has violent edicts, but you have to read the Quran in context and time. To say that what happened in the 7th century must be revived and considered the 'true Islam' is ridiculous to any reasonable thinking human being - that would mean reviving desert Arabic Islam, which is becoming obvious and beginning to look like a cult. Muslims have to revive the spiritual message of the Quran, which is often suppressed by Jihadists. I guess I'll get a lot of hostility, but no one owns Islam. We all can have our own personal relationship with God. I'll do as I damn please. Islamists psychologically suppress us. It never worked on me, but that doesn't mean I'm not a Muslim. I'm against the idea of a revived Calipha...I mean for God's sake, who do these people want as a Caliph, Osama bin Ladin or Omar Bakri??
This all sounds reasonable? Well, to some extent it does, except for the line: "I do acknowledge that the Quran has violent edicts, but you have to read the Quran in context and time." - This is because according to the quranic scripts there is no way to read it out of context! It's UNIVERSAL... And if you do- then you are nothing but a apostate- of which should be killed according to sharia law. It is a very simple equation. Either you are an islamist who follows the quran to the letter- or there is no islam! And you're no muslim...
This is what the mujahideen has understood all to0 well. They are the ones who are "good" muslims. Islam is really only a one way road to hell. Either you're with us or we will kill you! That in turn doesn't mean that all muslims are bad or evil. It only means that their ideology are!
Sweden has been singled out for special attack by Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as one of a "gang of four" European countries that were acting as British puppets to criticise his human rights record.
Sweden was named by Mugabe along with Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands. Speaking behind closed doors at the EU-Africa summit in Lisbon, Mugabe said the four countries were "arrogant".
Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said it was "a great honour to be admitted to a group that stands up for human rights and democracy."
Well then we must be doing something right! For once!
Scientists at Sandia (a private venture [GOCO] connected to Lockheed Martin), has come up with a way to "trap" CO2 (which no one knows if it has anything to do with the global warming theory- Yes THEORY- or not) which then can be made in to CO which in turn can be made in to synthetic fuels like Methanol or maybe even Diesel or Kerosene.
5...4...3...2...1 Here's the alarmists (Gore) condemning it because it's connected to the "weapon industry" (want to place a bet?).
But there are a lot of process steps made in this transformation. And as allways there is a lot of energy used doing this. Where will that energy be taken from?
Maybe I'll do my share and just turn off my computer! Or like Gore defend his humongus use of energy by buying CO2 quotas (or what ever they are called)- with money (which is just another form of energy- think of all the energy being used to earn that money)!
Trying to brake the oil dependency- FINE! But saying that we will produce less CO2 when doing it- FALSE!
If you want to lessen your CO2 emmissions, then turn off that light in the room you're not in for the moment etc. And stop sending "aid" to countrys! For every dollar or euro sent as "aid" an equal amount of CO2 is produced! (Not to mention that it would lessen the headache about terrorism. For crissake- we in the west are sending "aidmoney" to Saudi Arabia!) Furthermore every dollar or euro sent will actually increase the poverty in the countrys it is being sent to! (Think- How can a farmer in say... Ethiopia make a living when we are handing it out for free?) Those countrys that are reciving the most "aid" are also allmost allways the most corrupt ones...
Three women who worked at a women's shelter in southern Sweden have been found guilty on appeal of helping a mother to hide her two children from their father, who had custody.
Where I live
South Africa is probably the most murderous society on earth with a terrible culture of violence.
In the first seven years of ANC rule, violence & crime increased by 33%. Not taking into account the 50% or more of crime that goes unreported because of distrust between the police and the public.
In the “Old South Africa” crime statistics, averaged about 7,036 murders per year to the New South Africa averaging 47,882 murders per year. Since 1994 we have had a massive influx of work seekers (refugees) to our cities from neighbouring countries, even from as far afield as Nigeria, Morocco, and China … at least 7 million undocumented immigrants live in our cities illegally … so there is massive unemployment.
With a reputation as the crime capital of the world, SA has the highest recorded per capita murder rate in the world. The per capita murder rate in the USA is 6 per 100 000, while in South Africa it is 59 per 100 000.
Because the prisons are so heavily over populated there is now the impact of the early release of well over 100 000 criminals including murderers and rapists from SA prisons.
While crime rates are increasing, conviction rates are decreasing. For every 1,000 crimes committed in South Africa, only 430 criminals are arrested, furthermore, only 77 are convicted and despite the huge numbers of serious crimes of violence committed only 8 are sentenced sometimes to only 2yrs imprisonment.
“When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, the hearts of the people are filled with schemes to do wrong.” Ecclesiastes 8:11
The killings, domestic violence, rape, hijackings, house and business robberies, bank robberies, vehicle thefts, are for us a way of life.
We have one of the most beautiful countries in the world with the most awesome climate but unfortunately we can't enjoy it because mostly we keep ourselves locked up in our homes in 24hr guarded security complexes.
I remember a time when as children we walked or cycled to school on our own, when most homes were not surrounded by high walls, razor wire, spikes and electric fencing. When homes did not need burglar bars and security gates, alarm systems and armed response companies and when many roads did not need security booms. When vehicles did not need gear locks, steering locks, alarm systems and satellite tracking devices.
When we did not carry such huge bunches of keys....
Welcome to our New “liberated and peaceful” South Africa.
South Africa was "liberated". Zimbawe was "liberated"- Hmm, if those two countrys is examples of what happens when they get "liberated" then...
The EU commision wants to forbid the use of Creosote. It is mainly used as a wood preservative for telephone posts and railroad ties. There has never over the past hundred years been a cancer case related to creosote- All the same, that is why the EU commision wants to forbid it's use!
Probably, some "scientists" have discovered a link between cancer and creosote in test animals. But we all know how these test are being made. To get grants the scientists must rely on "finding" the "right" test results as most of the grants is coming in from the governments and therefore are politically motivated. It's also true that most of the governments in EU are socialistic with an unproportional influence by the greens.
Swedens invironment comissionary Margot Wallström (social democrate) is one of the leading figures behind EU:s chemical directive REACH which will now force Sweden to replace the railroad ties with steel ones at a cost of 25 bilion kr (about $4.2 billions)- what the cost will be for the rest of EU is unknown.
The wooden railroad ties are supposed to be replaced with steel ones. Not only will this make train travel much noisier, but one can only imagine all the energy that will have to be produced to do this- with added CO2 into the atmosphere. Politicians- and especially the red/green ones) seems to have there heads stuck up so far in their asses that they can watch the BS coming out of their mouths... (And still not get it!)
Christmas is hectic for all but particularly for Santa, who must live in Kyrgyzstan and make his rounds at lightning speed if he is to deliver gifts to all the world's children on time, a Swedish consultancy has concluded.
So this day is 1:st of Advent, That means that I have to walk up all the stairs to the attic to bring down the big box of christmas ornaments. I'm not religious myself, but the whole christmas thingy is still- I think- a celebration for the kids.
So today I will light a candle. My son is going to have a treat of gingerbread. He will open another "hatchet [I'm not shure of the right English word] on his Christmas callendar. And I will take a sip or two of the customary "Glögg/Gluhewine" (even though I relly don't like it).
I like to think of this time of year in the sense that the old Vikings did. As a celebration for the oncoming spring and summer. But while wer'e here- just have some fun...
Happy holidays everyone!
