Swedish union accept cut in pay

Officially the wage increase is 3.2% over 2 years. Oh the smiles and happy tunes over them avoiding rallies and strikes.

However, seen to the inflation rate, that pay increase will evaporate already this year. In effect the union has just agreed upon lowering their member’s salaries.

Don’t get me wrong, I loathe unions. I pretty much think they are soul sucking thugs, a mafia with mafia methods almost always supporting more socialism. Never been a member and never will.

I also believe it is necessary for pay decreases right now. In order to tackle this depression (yes, it is) it is necessary to lower wages. Not private ones so much, but public ones. A 13% lower, across the board, pay cut as they did in Ireland would be a great thing right now. Or, rather eliminate all public employees completely. That would be the best thing ever.

But it is important that people know what inflation does to their ACTUAL purchasing power. What it says in your envelop (As long as it’s not a note from the Justice Minister outing you as a pervert to all around you) has nothing to do with it. If your income is 10,000, 100,000 or 1,000,000 have NO MEANING.

What matters is what you actually can buy for that money. It is the correlation between your pay and the cost of stuff at the store that matters. And since Sweden is a deeply socialized country you also need to check taxes and fees.

After you’ve paid 60-70-80 percent of your income in taxes and then what you can buy with what you have left. That is what matters.

Inflation is when our money loses value; it has nothing to do with prices as our enemies want you to think. REAL inflation in Sweden right now is around 3.2%, do you recognize that number? And it can only go up. This means that a year from now most, probably all, of that wage increase of two years is gone.

So when our Justice Minister sends thugs out to kidnap your children in order to put needles in them and force them to pee in a coup, your income is going down. Isn’t the world of leftie policies great?

Go to war! Come on! You know you want to…

South Korea's military scrambled naval vessels to the western waters near the disputed maritime border with North Korea late Friday after an explosion ripped a hole in the bottom of a military ship.

There was speculation it could have been from a torpedo from the North. The involvement of North Korea has not yet been confirmed.

The North more than likely wants a war. Now when they have nuclear weapons they feel a bit more secure and with millions famished and their socialist experiment being a total failure the pressure is on. The dictatorship would consequently welcome a slight skirmish, focusing their people on fighting and not starving. Maybe they could even get some thousand killed and get some agreement of help sent out of a future armistice; both prospects should look like a good idea for the socialists.

And you just instinctively know that if that deranged midget is desperate enough to do something this provocative, things must be getting pretty bad for the regime.

"Those who seek to bring down the system in the DPRK (North Korea)... will fall victim to the unprecedented nuclear strikes of the invincible army," // North Korea General Staff spokesman

Yah another war - the world economy is saved

Sort of…

The Americans are happy with their wars, it’s the only thing keeping GDP numbers up and the only “positive” thing in the economy during the whole of 2009. And the most warmongering president in US history probably has nothing against throwing some of those phallus thingies at tiny Koreans. Showing his manhood so to say. A new "Tonkin incident" perhaps?

The Chinese will probably put a stop to anything of the sort though, so don’t get your hopes up yet.

Talking smurf with a smurf about smurf

Sweden’s Justice Minister continues to amaze. She has still not a clue what the problem with her statement was. She has sort of retracted it (6 days after, and after she repeated the same stupidity) stating “it was a mistake” and the funny follow-up “it is election year, I should know better”.

Yeah… that’s how she feels about it.

The totalitarian views she expressed are secondary, well hardly worthy of mentioning really. Innocent people getting outed as guilty and getting a medieval treatment? Pfffff… that doesn’t matter. The blogosphere and the political opposition is upset because it is election year and her tiny little miniscule slip of the tongue has been blown waaaay out of proportion.

Today she said:
"- Jag har lärt mig väldigt mycket om att vara försiktig med att ge exempel. Det är lite sorgligt för jag tror att vi behöver politiker som deltar i en diskussion. Men man får göra det en annan gång än under ett valår."

”I’ve learned quite a deal about being careful about giving examples. It is a bit sad because I think we need politicians that participate in the debate. But that can be done another time when it is not election year.”

You see? She’s not sorry; she’s not against what she said before. She still thinks that innocent people can be thrown out to the public as perverts with the aid of government. All she thinks is that it was a shame she said it with cameras there and during an election year.

Apparently media is on her side in this.

I remember I once heard that journalism was supposed to be about protecting the little guy, to watch and monitor the powers that be and to fight for civil liberties and our democratic freedoms.

I wonder if that has ever been true.

This is the biggest scandal we’ve seen in years and probably the worst statement ever uttered by a minister in modern time.

When I was involved in politics as a youth (coincidently the same party as our fascist Justice Minister) I did hear one or two communists openly admit they would kill me if given the chance. I’ve also heard racist idiots saying stupid things about immigrants or Muslims. I do guess most of you have similar experiences, but we’re not talking drunken spats, or insults flung from one teenager to the other in the heat of debate. This is a minister during a seminar she had prepared for, our Justice Minister!!

Every paper in the country should have her face on the FrontPage for every day until she resigns. TV, radio and cable networks should be hunting her down, looking into her background, digging up every piece of dirt there is. There should be massive demonstrations, egg throwing and people leaving her party in hordes if she doesn’t resign.

The opposition is kind of quiet, and I get them, why would they want their open target to leave office? They get 1-2% extra voting for them if she stays.

I also got quoted in one of Sweden’s largest newspapers today. The journalist took this statement:

“I’ve never been in a rally my entire life, but if there are some people out there wanting to fill the streets and burn torches outside parliament until this horrific woman is thrown out, I’m there.”

And argued that me, and some other bloggers are examples of what the reporter calls “The blog-hate”.

Well, if the journalist had checked around a bit I’ve also said people should find a grassy knoll, I’ve demanded the justice ministers head on a plate and that people should burn down parliament. Whether or not such statements on this blog are in earnest or not, I leave up to you as reader to figure out.

However, it may shock this journalist, and some of my readers, that I actually like the totalitarian lady in question. You may not think so, but I do. She is one of the few ministers I can stand; she is a lovable person and a very good speaker. She has that honesty thing going and she has a wonderful smile. I’ve also met her on several occasions and had nothing but praise before she got her current assignment.

I’m still wondering what happened to her. Did she get that arrogance bug and a slight case of corruption? Did the post as minister go to her head? Have she started eating funny looking mushrooms?

I thought the torture-of-kids policy was the bottle of the barrel. How can any minister sink lower than wanting to strap down and forcibly put needles into children? But she could.

You see in contrast to media, this journalist that apparently don’t like my style of writing, most pundits and the Minister herself, I don’t let my personal feelings or any political color get in the way.

If a minister, no matter whom it is or what party she/he belongs to, says that a suspect for a crime should be outed to their friends, family and neighborhood, I will demand a resignation. If the same person takes 6 days to come to the conclusion that it maybe wasn’t the greatest thing to say and blame that it is an election year, the demand for resignation remains. She is not sorry she said it, that is obvious, she’s only sorry for the publicity.

And when you combine such a person with the policies of hunting down an entire generation, locking up people for victimless crimes and to top it all off the torture of kids thingy, how can you not be outraged?

To me it is an utter surprise that there are not parents on the street burning effigies of our ministers.

And that publicity would hardly have been if it wasn’t for bloggers like me. The old media does nothing!

Probably why the journalist don’t like me, and is also why the Justice Minister most likely will demand some sort of anti-blogging policy very soon.

If we do not demand a Justice Minister to resign over obvious totalitarian views and for wanting to torture our children, when do we do it? Is mass murder our limit?

Beatrice Ask must resign and anyone that do not think so is either bought and paid for or have no clue what a fair and modern justice system is all about.

Oh no… They are burning textiles

Apparently some Malaysian Muslims are burning the Swedish flag in protest against those cartoonish drawings of Muhammad.

Isn’t that a tad juvenile?

I kind of liked fire when I was little, not in arson kind of a way, but it is warm, you can burn stuff (okay, maybe there’s a tiny arsonist in me…) and you get light and energy from it.

But adults burning some fabric while dancing around shouting idiocies?

And a bit of cloth with some colors, are we really supposed to feel offended by it? Media seem to think so, why else is flag burning like the second biggest story and one of the most repeated stories you can find?

Maybe I would be a bit upset if Malaysians burned a dog (hey! Food!) or if was people. Well, depending on what people. A dog burning would always upset me, some banksters and politicians not so much.

Anyway, in some countries it is even illegal to burn textile with a certain color combination…

That is how far humanity has got during 250 000 years of evolution - the outlawing of burning certain cloth with certain colors on it.

Furthermore, I think Beatrice Ask must resign.
