Let ’em be!

A big reggae festival in Sweden has been hit by police again, snatching up around 240 people on drug charges. The media reports this and interesting enough they also report no disturbances and no violence to speak of. So around 10 000 people gather at a venue, presumably doing drugs (seemingly only cannabis) and there is no violence. Compare that to any town of equivalent size a Saturday night with people drinking alcohol…

In any case, people doing drugs should, of course, be left alone. Do we own our own bodies? Can I decide what I smoke, drink or eat? Am I the sole king over me? The answers to these questions are NO – the government owns us. That’s the conclusion we can draw and instead of having the police chasing real criminals like murderers, rapists, bankers and robbers, law enforcement is wasting time with people exercising their human rights. These people are, apparently, good citizens and if the crime rate is this low, let them smoke, dance, eat or inject whatever, their life, their bodies and their choice. The government should stay out of our lives because as long as they keep interfering we will keep having recessions and people will keep being locked up for doing nothing wrong.

And just so you all know, I detest cannabis which I never understood the fun thing with. I’m a Swedish male and consequently I drink vodka, preferably home-brewed and that’s another thing that should be legalized.

And another sign...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner formally requested that Congress raise the $12.1 trillion statutory debt limit on Friday, saying that it could be breached as early as mid-October.

Let's say it all together now: Heil Depression! Heil!

Get used to it... the worst is yet to come...

From the article:
In this recession-racked town, the lack of food is a serious problem. It's a theme that comes up again and again in conversations in Detroit.

What makes this recession different is the type of people coming in. It's no longer just the homeless, or the really poor. Now it's middle class folks who lost their $60,000-a-year auto job, or home owners who got caught on the wrong side of the real estate bubble.

Hyperinflation coming soon

Things are going so horrible bad in the US that it boggles even my mind. There are many of us that have been trying to warn people about this and that. Lately one of the main warnings being issued is the coming collapse of the USD. If there were any doubts about that looming disaster, you should take a look at this picture:

“That makes today your average, regular $26.2 billion dollar day of thin-air money injection ($7 + $ 19.2). To put this in context, today's fresh money operation, alone, would have been 88th on the list of yearly total output on the world GDP listing.”

And you know this money goes somewhere, and where are we seeing those “green shoots” again? That’s right…

Oh, we are being so royally fucked.

I (we) need….

There is lots of stuff I need to replace. For instance this lap top I’m writing on is over 1 year old, wouldn’t it be great if the government could print and/or borrow some more money (or steal from us) and subsidize computer companies with a couple of thousands so I, and everyone else, could buy a new one? We can call this “The PC replacement program”. Would save jobs in the computer industry, I can give my computer to some poor fellow in Africa and everyone wins…

I also need new clothes. I could tear up and cut my clothes into little pieces and then the Government can print and/or borrow some more money (or steal from us) and hand me a voucher so I can buy new ones. Great stuff really. It would save thousands of jobs in the textile industry.

I also need a house. Although this might be a tad too expensive for the government to buy for everyone, so let’s just have them lower interest rates, instate a government bank that is easier to borrow from so we can borrow some money and if the government does the same and subsidize, oh, let’s say, 20% we can all buy or replace our homes! This would be great for the real-estate market and would increase GDP! Wow, I’m on to something here.

How about a new MP3 player? Doesn’t owning a good music player constitute as a human right? Why isn’t the government handing out those for free?

Shoes are very important and didn’t a couple of companies show bad results lately? Come on! Let’s help all those and let’s save jobs!

And that entertainment industry we are conjuring up laws for, they need more help. They are not earning nearly enough money, let’s give ‘em some!

The government is clearly not taking a good enough interest in mine or your wellbeing. They are not borrowing enough, printing enough and subsidizing enough. And most importantly, if doing so they would increase companies’ profits and GDP!! That’s what we are all rooting and hoping for, so let’s get cracking.

what you need to know

While a mock trial goes on in Iran, we have a people suffering for another reason in Honduras. Iran, getting criticism, but not nearly enough. Honduras, however, where the democratic government has done the right thing; is getting lots of heat in media. Why?
The dictator wannabe Zelaya has now apparently been thrown out of Mexico as well, something I so far haven't seen reported in our western media. Why?

Here is what you need to know:

What you'll learn is that the Honduran Constitution may be amended in any way except three. No amendment can ever change (1) the country's borders, (2) the rules that limit a president to a single four-year term and (3) the requirement that presidential administrations must "succeed one another" in a "republican form of government."

In addition, Article 239 specifically states that any president who so much as proposes the permissibility of reelection "shall cease forthwith" in his duties, and Article 4 provides that any "infraction" of the succession rules constitutes treason. The rules are so tight because these are terribly serious issues for Honduras, which lived under decades of military rule.

Our media is never doing their job, I have said that before and I say it again. It is very frustrating how media has ignored the hundreds of thousands that gathered to support the Honduran government and oppose (CNN even called a 20,000 big rally pro-Zelaya when it was a pro-government rally). The biggest protest by the Zelaya supporters has been around 45,000. While a week before the socialist dictator was thrown out 100,000 marched against Zelaya's illegalities in San Pedro Sula. 160,000 gathered at the presidential palace and 40,000 gathered at the Central Park of Tegucigalpa in support of the current government and against Zelaya and Chavez's intervention.
And What is the main source our bias media is using for their reports from Honduras? It's TELESUR. And do you know who owns that channel? Hugo Chavez...

Of course the Obamination is showing his true color, hardly saying anything towards Iran, but condeming the democratic government of Honduras as mentioned here:

The only illegal action that was taken was expelling Zelaya from Honduras. The military has admitted that and said they are expecting citations for what they did. The judicial advisor of the army said he was ready to take responsibility of his actions. He said that the military seriously considered the risks and consequences of each option they had. After considering the option of arresting, encarcerating, and submitting Zelaya to trial in a base or prison in Honduras, they decided it was too dangerous for the people, the military, and Zelaya. Considering the infiltration of foreign agitators and the fact that Zelaya previously led and emboldened a mob to break into the air force base, they concluded the possibilities of a massacre was too high to keep him in the country.
