Mama said knock you out!

“I was absolutely furious with him. All that was going through my head was to knock him [Gorgon Brownie] out.”

Those are the words of Britain's highest decorated serving soldier and winner of the Victoria Cross, Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry.

L/Cpl Beharry said that Mr Brown had not looked him or any other servicemen in the eye at a reception in Downing Street in November 2008.

To be fair, the one-eyed Scotsman hardly looks anyone in the straight in the face. He might throw a phone at you if he acknowledges your presence, but that’s pretty much it.

Then in Westminster Abbey during the Remembrance Day service last November he said the Prime Minister was “fidgeting and moving” during the two minute silence.
“I've got head and back injuries that put me back in hospital in a lot of pain quite regularly, so if I could do it there's no reason he couldn't," he said. "It was very rude.

Again I need to come to the Prime Mentalists rescue a bit. We’ve all heard the stories about drugs and certain ailments. Even though far from being confirmed by Downing Street, maybe, just maybe those ailments do cause a certain wobble?

“When he offered his hand to me I just turned around and walked away. I wanted him to think about his actions and it worked.”

A very nice and British way of smacking someone in the face I would say.

I once loudly called Sweden’s current Labor Minister a Fascist during a dinner party, this when I was a member of the same party and that was a very restraint and nice way of putting it. A body slam with the flying elbow as a follow-up would have been more appropriate.

The Gorgon is a much worse thug, so Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry must truly be a real gentleman and, depending on how you look at it, a good example of the British armed forces.

Shaky warzone

The situation over in Mexico is turning towards worse for each day that passes. And I am not talking about some average earthquake. I’ve been writing about the unwinnable drug war the Mexican government started and continues to escalate for a long time now.

It is time for people of this earth (excluding government that never will acknowledge it) to realize two things; firstly that the “war against drugs” is unwinnable. It doesn’t matter how severe punishments there are for peddling drugs are or how many police officers you put into the equation, it has no barring whatsoever if you throw the military at kingpins, it will always, without exception, fail. Secondly it is the ‘war’ itself that creates the problems, not the drugs or the gangs. In effect it is the government that is at fault, not the mafia or the terrorists.

Since the Mexican government stepped up their unwinnable war close to 20,000 people have died, the costs has escalated with hundreds of billions, and now the cartels are starting to attack military installations.

Apparently coordinated attacks by dozens of gunmen took place last week targeting two army garrisons in northern Mexico. Military patrols and checkpoints have repeatedly come under fire in Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon, where armed gangs have raised roadblocks in the middle of cities and around army bases.

Jailbreaks are now so common in Mexico that most inmates don’t expect to sit off their sentences. And entire towns are being evacuated, some voluntary, others by force by drug gangs. Yeah, you read it right. Entire communities are being told by the cartels to leave or die.

Almost every day heads from decapitated bodies are found. And things are not calming down in any way, on the contrary. More and more bloggers and independent sources are talking about a civil war, which the Mexican authorities as well as their criminal counterparts in Washington are ignoring or trying to hide.

Let’s put this in a mathematical term.

I + HP + HC = HP

In this equation I stand for ‘illegality’, HP stands for ‘higher punishment’, HC is ‘higher costs’ and the summation HP is ‘higher profits’. This is contingent on people wanting drugs, which we know they always have and always will.

If you make something illegal profits for selling it goes up. If you increase punishment and in other ways increase the costs for making and selling it, profits go up.

So when the Mexican government throws military at gangs, all they really do is make the profits go way up. If they lock up a couple of gangster, then profits for those outside jail go up and that’s an invitation for more people to join in.

The solution, the only sensible and actually working solution is of course to legalize drugs. If drugs were legal they would be sold at supermarkets at a fraction of the cost and scrutinized by the market. And almost every criminal organization, as well as most terrorist groups, would disappear.

This civil war in Mexico could be over tomorrow if they legalized drugs. But you see, the government doesn’t want that, not for any nice protecting of you reason, oh no, they want this war because when there’s a war going on, who do we turn to for protection? Yes, that’s right… This is also why they are fighting the war against terrorism, the war against poverty, the war against unemployment, the war against inflation. All of these things are created by government and then fought by government under the disguise of "war".

So when a quake at the magnitude of 7.2 topples buildings and shake things up a bit, it cannot hold a candle to the damage being done to the Mexican people by their government.

Let’s play the latest Japanese game!

It is called “how to bring oneself to fiscal suicide”

Japanese GDP : 480 trillion yen

Japanese Government Debt (only Federal) : 637 trillion yen (137% of GDP)

Federal Expenditure (2010) : 92.3 trillion
…of which ~20.5 trillion yen is debt servicing cost

Accordingly, the average debt servicing cost is (20.5/637 = ) 3.24%

Federal taxes and other revenue is 44.3 trillion yen, which means borrowing is 48 trillion yen.

Expenditure ex. debt servicing is 71.65 trillion, of which 48 trillion (roughly 2/3) is borrowed.

If you read the last line in the fact-box again, you realize that this is a real horror story. After paying interest on its debt, Japan has only 23.65 trillion yen left, yet it spends 71.65 trillion...

Is immigration at fault?

A 78-year-old woman in the southern Swedish city of Landskrona lost consciousness after she was punched in the face while trying to intervene on behalf of her 71-year-old partner who was being attacked by a man in a parking dispute. The woman later died at the hospital.

The 23-year-old main suspect is facing charges of murder and aggravated assault, but has denied the allegations.

You never know in a case like this and I don’t have the police investigation in front of me, so there is chance the guy is innocent, although not very likely when you read about the incident in papers and watch the news.

However, he is of foreign origin and has a foreign name so whether he’s innocent or not have no real barring to the uproar in the community. And, of course, the Swedish Democrats (SD) that are the made-up “right-wing racist” party, loves this. It is a crime, it is a crime against the elderly by a very sick and cowardly person and it is a crime supposedly, and most likely, committed by an immigrant.

Some genius “expert” commentator said the other day that SD is using the martyr-card to gain support. Next he will probably declare that gravity exists or that the sun is warm. But what that “expert” and many others are missing is that it’s not SDs fault, not really. They can just sit back and relax. Just send an article to a paper or sit in the morning sofa once a week, then they can lay back and let the mainstream pundits bash them into fame and parliament.

And when a story like this brake out it’s yet another open goal.

Both the government and the opposition have solemnly declared that they will never form a coalition with the “racists” and that they will cut them out as much as possible. In the meantime journalists are competing in the game of who can trash and ridicule SD the most.

What the public see in all this, those that don't react with the auto-responder permanently cranked up to 'racist-Nazi-bigot-neanderthal-thug' every time those two letters are mentioned. People who would not have dreamed of voting SD, who might otherwise have heard little to nothing of that party, are wondering what all the fuss is about. Why is the government so scared of them? Why are they so desperate to silence this small party? What do they offer that the government doesn't?

And even more so, people that actually live in reality, in the real world where immigration and refugees actually pose a problem or at least some nuisance, those people see events like this murder as something the elite does nothing about. Sure the murderer might get caught and punished, but the next incident is just around the corner.

And so it doesn’t matter if journalists find criminals within SD, which party hasn’t criminals as members? Aren’t they all criminals? What if some article or pamphlet is riddled with holes? How many of the elitists aren’t lying to us each day? Are we supposed to care more because one party gets “caught” lying but not the other one?

Let's face it; so many people are so tired of our politicians - all of them - that they would be interested in voting for any party that the nosegoblins say they shouldn't.

The establishment might as well start printing 'Vote SD' badges ready for the next election.

This post isn't actually about the SD. So anyone currently suffering tinnitus and steam coming from their ears, chill out, have a smoke and a double brandy and relax. It is not a post in support of the SD nor is it a post attacking the SD. This is about the problem that immigration poses, what it potentially had to do with this murder and why the Swedish Democrats are gaining momentum.

Immigration means that a group of people that may look different or have a different religion are running, fleeing or just moving and might end up in your neighborhood.

The normal thing to do for these new citizens would be to learn the local language, get a job and work themselves into the society. I actually know how it is, having lived in several countries myself, it’s not always so easy. However this is seldom how it works.

To a certain degree these immigrants are to blame for being lazy idiots, but one also needs to realize that most countries have some kind of “plan” to take care of and handle the “helpless”. Often this little “plan” involves seeing all people that are not the norm as “helpless” and - of course - they need lots of welfare, support and “help” in all kinds of ways.

Never are they left alone getting the chance of trying to make it; they obviously cannot, they are “helpless”.

These “helpless” people than need to get past several obstacles on the labor market where unions and politicians have made it very hard for people to get a job. Minimum wage is one such stupidity making it much harder for the young and immigrants to get a decent job.

Many of these “helpless” people are also highly educated and have a degree in this or that. In Sweden for instance several of the crossing guards and personnel at the subway in Stockholm are former CEO’s, doctors and nurses. Not being able to get a job for what they are trained and educated for they try to earn some money within the rules.

As if it wasn’t enough being labeled “helpless” and being ignored by the labor-markets, they also, to some extent, get welfare-money and useless stupid education thingies thrown at them in addition to being driven to live among their peers out in some suburb. In other words it is not hard to see the foundation for conflicts and resentments, not mainly for the first ones arriving, they are probably just happy to have left their country/conflict or whatever, but their children ending up with the same problems and same labels will have problems. This is not an excuse for violent or lawbreaking behavior, just a fact needed to be considered into the equation.

No matter if you are Swedish, English or whatever, getting a bunch of foreign people coming to “your home country” and claiming a piece of that pie is kind of annoying. Since journalists, politicians and most economists keep claiming that there is a certain amount of money that – of course – needs to be distributed by the political system, this implies that more people living on the same pie means less all around and maybe even nil for some of the ethnic ones (horrid thought…).

The whole situation is fueled by those little things that keep bugging the hell out of even none-judgmental people; like banning the waving of the national flag or the outlawing of certain prayers or songs that might “offend” the newcomers.

In Sweden this can take absurd turns banning schoolchildren from attending church on graduation or people getting physically forced to remove the Swedish flag from their balcony. All this creates resentments and when an economic crisis, a war or something of that nature occurs; racists come out of the woodwork having a perfect little pile of animosity to dig out idiots from.

Would this old lady have been alive if it wasn’t for immigration? Perhaps. Would rape and violent crimes statistics be lower if it wasn’t for immigration? Maybe. And for many these “maybe’s” and “perhaps” is enough. And I sort of get it; it’s always easy to blame someone, even easier to blame someone with a foreign name with another religion. What I want you all to realize is that the problems that comes with immigration isn’t firstly and foremost immigrants that are to be blamed for, politicians are.

The individual should always be blamed and punished for the offence and crime he or she commits, but the foundation for many of the crimes we see and the creation of the basic animosity lies with the elitist righteous groups that rule us.

Ask yourself this; would your government take a view opposing yours and silence you, and those who would speak for you, and refuse to countenance any debate at all that would let you have a say? Would your government use lies and deceit to override anything you might want to do or say? Would your government use the law against you, demonise and punish you, encourage others to treat you as subhuman, for no other reason than they just don't like you?

Do you smoke? Drink? Drive? Are you a little on the portly side?

Can you see why the SD support is growing? It's not because people are all suddenly racist, it's not even because people are all suddenly in tune with all the policies on all the other things because they're pretty much the same policies as all the rest of them. The only real difference between SD and the social democrats is the more focus on the immigration and refugees issues.

People have seen the way the government are working on SD and they are thinking about that while they shiver outside for a smoke, while they queue in those bars for a overtaxed drink that comes with warning labels, while they hear talk about speed cameras that don't flash so you don't know whether you're fined until the letter arrives. They are reading about fat people beaten up for being fat, they are watching the information campaigns sending hateful messages against smokers, they are consoling children scared to death by the drowning puppies of the global warming religion, they are wondering why their government thinks they are all pedophiles, they are wondering why the government needs to poke around their computer and read their emails, and they are wondering why government and the elite tries to hide that a certain percentage of immigrants commits crime.

People aren't looking at the treatment of the SD and thinking 'They could do that to me'.

They are thinking 'They have done that to me'.

The elitists tell us that the SD are evil racists. Well, they've already told me I am personally evil because I use tobacco. I'm even more evil because I like a drink. I'm yet more evil because my salt and fat intake is nowhere near the recommended amounts. I'm a crazed 'global warming denier'. I will not take any vaccine. I promote capitalism and personal freedom and I, oh gosh, don’t vote. Can you find a more evil person than me?

Looking at the list of things this government calls me evil for being and doing, Satan had better watch out for his job. So when they call SD evil, I'm supposed to consider that a different type of evil or something?

I'm not going to vote SD. Too socialist, too controlling, too much as the rest of the bunch. But I'm not the only one classed as Satan's heir. There are millions out there who have been demonised far more than me. Why would they vote SD?

Why would they not?

And immigration is a problem, and it will continue to be a problem unless we take a different approach.

One thing that immediately would get rid of most animosity from inbreeds towards immigrants and diminish the laziness of all within a country, is to eliminate all kinds of welfare. If we also scrap minimum wage laws and take away all hinders that stops people from taking work and stops people from being a real part of society, then immigration stops being a problem.

Who the fuck cares if a doctor speaks English or Swedish? Just fix me up and cure me. And why the hell would anyone care if the engineer that builds the bridge is from India? Just make a good bridge damn you.

Finally we need to get rid of the politically correct righteous puppet masters that send their thugs and spin-doctors out to work whenever and whatever happens. I too find it ridiculous singing the national anthem and waving flags around, but at least that is ‘us’, our culture and a part of our history. If you ban that with some obscure reference to immigration, is it then such a surprise that immigrants become a target?

This old lady getting murdered is a very sad story, but it isn’t the first one, and it won’t be the last. Sometimes it will be a blond blueeyed tall thug that do the murdering, sometimes it will be a black-haired Muslim called Abdullah. The problem is that we seldom talk about and address the problem with immigration and that this can and, at least according to SD, do cause more crimes.

Sometimes it feels like the established parties and the righteous actually want a racist party to bash, they certainly do nothing to stop them and sad events like this one will further fuel their upwards going momentum.
