Solomon’s choice part 1

in 2 weeks’ time, the Brits will head to the polls to decide who will lead the country through the challenges of a post depression globalized economy.
It’s going to be a tough choice.

Nick Clegg, the young leader of the Liberal Democrats, looked good until I started looking deeper. I didn’t like what I found.
Mr Clegg is a privileged ex lobbyist who has been having several businessmen paying him monthly in an account used to pay his mortgage and other personal expenses.
The Lib Dem program shows some strange and unsettling ideas liek adding VAT to newly built houses, which translates, according to the builders’s associations all over the country, in a severe increase in prices for first time buyers.
A direct result of this measure would be locking many young people out of the property ladder.

Lib Dems claim this would be an incentive for young people to buy older properties and repair them. The blindness of such an idea can only come from people who believe the BBC’s idiotic property shows- which have as much relation with reality as
the Queen has with a honest day’s work.
Living in a 200 year old house myself, and facing the problms that come with a house that is old, cold, difficult to maintain, badly insulated and would cost an arm and a leg to bring into anything even remotely close to modern standards
of living, I would like to invite these privileged twats to go take a long walk off a short cliff. You can LIVE in a new house. Yound couples struggling to put a foot on the property ladder lack the means , money and time to invest in restoring an old lemon- that’s a hobby for idiots with too many time on their hands.

The Conservatives… well there’s another pot of fish. You see their adds everywhere. They claim they can bring “real change” to Britain, but everyone with half a brain who’s been watchign the recent American elections cn tell you- bad change is change too. Change is only a valid slogan if you specify what you want changed, and therein lies the problem with the Conservatives.
Mr Cameron, whom I cannot call a moron because that would be a dire and foul insult to morons everywhere, thinks Britain can be dragged back kicking and screaming into the 1930s when poor people knew their place and those of a different colour were kept safe out of Britain.

You don’t believe me? Look at the facts.
Mr Cameron has publicly anounced he wants to cut welfare. What does that mean? Welfare as it is now is meager at best. many people ae still trying to recover their capacity to work. Mr cameron would insure that they end up in the streets, considering that welfare is only enough to keep one floating dead on the poverty level and nothing more.
It would also insure cut in already meager services. Why?
Because someone has to pay for Mr Cameron’ aggressive campaigning, and it ain’t coming from his grandmother’s funeral fund. Whoever pays for all these bilboards will want something back, and many an influence peddler will queue to his office to ask for return investment on their money. And that means reducing taxes, which Mr Cameron and his rich friends have been blabbering about for years.

Reduced taxes means reduced income for the Government, and I can guarantee you that those cuts will not affet the lavish budget of the Parlament. They will however affect the NHS, and all of the public services we love in this country. Like it or not, Mr Cameron will still charge the taxpayer for a shower curtain worth hundreds of pounds, and Joe Bloggs will pay for it. Just like before, only under Mr cameron’s reactionary rule pe Bloggs will find his state pension cut when he retires, and his work aquired illnesses will get little care from a stripped NHS.

Mr Cameron also anounced that he wants to limit immigration from the Commonwealth, but not from Europe. Not that big a deal you say?
Wrong, kind sir! You see, it’s the colour. Limit the immigrants form the commonwealth equals limit the number of non white immigrants.
Sounds like a polished BNP to me.

Race war as a convenient smokescreen for class war part 1

There’s a big difference between men and women. Men who toed the line had the real advantages. Women who towed the line had very minimal advantages, but thats as far as it goes concerning that article. The rest of it is more or less agreeable. In the 60s, the notion that the world was ran by ‘White Men’ was propogated, and to some degree it was true. However, it isn’t literally true, the world is ran by Rich men. Consider, that the King of Saudi Arabia has the political strength to man-handle what is percieved as ‘The Worlds most Powerful White Man’ which was, up until very recently, the American President.

The cultural unrest we see right now is roted in the ‘White Men are the enemy’ point of view which expanded to become ‘The White People’, it’s a monstrous manipulation to divert problems to race when the true enemy of the people has always been classism as defined by Marx, Enges and Lenin. These people were right, and I say that reluctantly as a communism survivor.

The the 60s, ‘The West’ came very close to real revolution in terms of class, so in order to avoid this problem, the global racewar was constructed in the format we see it as today in order to maintain divide et impera. The whole race war is a facade designed to divide the people against themselves, and ultimately blind them to the true problem of classism. You’d feel the effects of what I call this secondary position, to an intolerable degree anyway, only if you’re poor. Then it’s easy to place ‘The White Man’ as the enemy. The enemy is class.

British People aren’t very smart

No, seriously. It looks like David Cameron might win the elections.
The know nothing leader of the do nothing party will probably become this country’s prime minister, and this would be funny if it wouldn’t personally affect me.

Mind you, the fact people honestly believe Gordon Brown is to be blamed for the global recession is the best sign the national IQ has taken a dip into the negatives. Maybe it’s because people are genuinely dumb enough to believe this that I despair for this country.

I know most people have no fucking clue as to how the global economy works, but seriously- how dumb do you have to be to believe the UK’s prime minister is to blame for a crisis of global proportions? Poor Gordon is NOT the nefarious mastermind who plotted this- he is a victim at best.

Incidentally, there IS a specific reason why the UK is so slow to recover. That has something to do with Mr Cameron’s Party and its beloved leader Mrs Burn In Hell Thatcher wrecking the hell out of the bespoken British manufacturing industries. Britain does not produce things- and that’s why it’s hard to recover. So maybe the morons who want to put the same party in power should consider thinking about what happened last time the conservatives were in power.

While Gordon doesn’t have Tony Blair’s gift of the gab and his selection for the prime minister position was a seriously bad one (the guy is a decent financier but he lacks the barking talents a good politician needs to have in order to shut up his opponents with dumb words) – he didn’t create the global recession. And if you think you’re having it bad- keep this in mind: the Tories would probably make the UK into the USA- where people live in tent cities because they lost their homes and all of the jobs are gone to China, never to return. The UK is not yet there.

Also it might be worth asking where do the Conservatives get all those money for their aggressive campaigning?

If I’ve learned anything in my life, it’s that the best question to ask is “where’s the money coming from”. The larger a candidate’s coffers are, the biggest the hand up his arse playing him like a puppet. For an illustration of how that works see Obama, Barack.

So, if you’re amongst the fools who believe that David Cameron has any solutions to anything, ask yourself what is it that he’s ever achieved by himself.
His empty words in the MPs spending scandal should tell you that the man says one thing and does another.

And if you’re thinking “it can’t get any worse” , you’re a moron. Think of a Britain with no social safety net. Cameron does not have a plan to redress the economy or to create jobs. Why? Because his party never cared about creating jobs- but they have always been very good a destroying them- ask anyone who lived through the 80’s.

The Bill Clinton Cult

There is a tendency amongst what passes for American liberals to worship Bill Clinton as the “ideal president”. It’s understandable. These people last lived well under Clinton, and after 10 years of strife and constant lowering of their standard of living, it’s natural they would have an idealized image of him.

Of course the problem with American liberals, which at best are centrist or slightly left leaning centrist from the point of view of us European pinkos, is their willful blindness.

Yes, THEY lived well. And that matters. But none of them bothers to remember that all of this came at a price.

And why is that? Because they didn’t pay the price.

Others did. My town in Romania paid the price when some nice American businessman came and bought the hosiery factory that fed half the town … only to shot it down because it made cheaper. The poor bastards in Yugoslavia bombed by American planes in 1999’s Easter night did. The poor people of Haiti sold once again into American corporation slavery paid. The list goes on.

Don’t get me wrong in any way shape or form, I don’t hate Bill Clinton. The guy had his good parts, and from all the presidents America had in generations, he was the least assholish of the lot.

However.

It takes an unbelievable amount of naivety to believe that an American President could be anything but a shrewd politician who has already taken his heart out and sacrificed it on the altar of the Gods of Capitalism that rule the USA.

Make no mistake, no politician worth a quarter of his or her salt will have any delusions about the power of the people myth. There’s no such thing. The people of the USA are kept pacified with commodities they can’t afford in order to not realize they are mere wage slaves and puppets to the Gods of Capitalism.

And these American liberals have the same illness. I don’t quite recall any of them protesting the embargo on Iraq back under old Bill. Of course they didn’t. Innocents were dying from lack of medication and food, but that meant fuck all to the people who still had their cars and homes and jobs.

Do not get me wrong. Bill Clinton was a good president for the USA. The job of the president is to look after his people’s well being, in this case the illusion of comfort and plenitude that gets paid for by pillaging the world’s resources and screw you if you don’t like it.

The difference between Clinton and Bush the Second is minimal, but relevant: Clinton didn’t screw over his own people (too much).

When Good Old Bill took power, America was not a country anymore. It was nothing more than the heavy fist of a bunch of corporations, used to enslave and pillage the rest of the world, while its own people were being kept in the dormant state of the overfed.

Under these conditions, It is fair to say that Bill did the best he could by his people. That may make him a good president and probably a pretty decent human being, but that’s not enough.

In his defense, no American president has a chance in hell to get elected if he tells his people “you are too lazy and too greedy, your lifestyle is an illusion and your very standard of living is an undeserved burden upon the rest of the world”.

People don’t like being told they’re bad people. Even if they are.

It’s true, but that’s not the sort of truth people like to hear. Americans, and, let’s be honest, most of the people in the parts of the world where comfort has been present for the past half a century or so, do not regard themselves as being in any way privileged, but entitled.

By virtue of where they were born, they feel entitled to food, shelter, opportunities and safety. And screw everyone else.

If Bush would have provided a minimal amount of comfort to his people, few if any of them would have been batting an eyelid to his wars. They only revolted because he cut into their lifestyle.

So please, stop with the Clinton cult. Credit where it’s due, but by virtue of his job, as POTUS, Bill was the planet’s biggest pillager for 8 years, and many places on this Earth still carry the mark of his work.

Sorry folks. I’m one of the people who paid for your lifestyle, and you have done nothing to deserve it. Spare me the crocodile tears: if you’d still had what you had in the 90’s. none of you would give a flying fuck about what your revered soldiers- nothing more but criminal members of an imperialist conquest army- are doing to other people just so you can have your hamburgers , jeans and SUVs.

The real Gaza atrocity

Funny how nobody in the media mentions this:

in 2005, Israel, sick and tired of being painted as the villain for having the audacity to defend its people, initiated a bold move of unilateral disengagement: the Israeli troops completely withdrew from Gaza, the Israeli settlements were dismantled and Gaza was left alone.
Even more to it- the Israelis left behind a significant amount of technology- hydroponic farms, etc that could have been used to improve the lives of the people of Gaza.

Have a wild guess at what the people of Gaza, ruled by the terrorist organization Hamas, did about it.
As soon as the IDF jeeps left, they started to… bomb Israel. They destroyed the technology left behind because it was “Jewish technology”, and for 5 years continued to bomb the hell out of Israel’s southern cities.

Weapons- just weapons, no food, no medical supplies- were smuggled into Gaza through tunnels and used for bombing Israeli civilians and cities. So Israel, in what is legally a self defense move, decided to block the traffic of weapons into Gaza.

Apparently trying to curb Hamas’ access to weapons is an “atrocity” but nobody cares about the thousands of Israeli civilians killed by Hamas’ bombs, by their constant living in fear and terror.

Everybody is screaming about the poor people of Gaza living badly in poverty and nobody seems to wonder- “if they’re so poor, where do they have money for rockets and explosives from?”. Maybe the trees in Gaza are growing Quassam rockets?

Between 1947-1967, all of the Jews in the Arabic Peninsula were expelled from their homes, sometimes only getting away with the clothes on their backs. Israel took them in, resettled them and made sure they were able to have new lives.
Israel is a small country without oil, a sliver of desert where even weeds have to be planted and irigated to grow.

In the mean time, the Arabic countries surrounding Israel, swimming in oil money, could not care less about their Palestinian brothers. Oh, they will complain about the poor Palestinians being exploited by the horrible Jews who have the audacity to defend themselves from suicide bombers, but these countries, very willing to go to war on behalf of said Palestinains, seem incapable of taking that willingness farther to things like, I don’t know, helping their brothers improve their lives.

They send weapons and propaganda in Gaza, but no food, no medical supplies and no actual help. Why? Because thwey WANT their “brothers” to live badly, so they can point an accusing finger at Israel.
Israel who, incidentally, is still the largest aid provider to Palestine. Go figure.

Not only that, but the Palestinians who maybe got tired of being pawns in this power game face tremendous pressure and obstacles if they try to move and settle in one of the countries of their loving Arab brethren. Immigrants from Palestine, even at third generation, are denied citizenship in these countries. So much for brotherhood.
Why? Because having a mass of poor , ignorant, angry people willing to strap explosives on themselves in order to kill Jews is what these so loving Arab countries care for. That’s the real atrocity.
