“V” and the flu shoot

If you haven’t seen the latest episode of “V”, you should. Really hilarious stuff.

-- spoiler alert ---

In this episode the Aliens hand out super-vitamin thingies that governments’ all over, in some state of suspicion, check and investigate. At the same time the lizard-people (“V’s”) have sneaked in a toxin into the flu vaccine. Look at the right hand while the left does some tricky stuff behind the back, so to say...

This show is turning out to be a regular conspiracy regulator. The similarities between Obama’s electoral campaign and how the V’s are selling their oppression is forebodingly similar, and anyone familiar with conspiracy theories can find lots of stuff in this show.

It leaves you wondering, is this a way of saying anyone complaining about the flu shoot or Obama is a nut just watching too much TV or is it a way of telling some kind of truth? Probably neither, only writers making the best use of scary contemporary stuff thrown about in the ether. Why not use existing thingies instead of coming up with your own?

Still, fun stuff and I’m guessing one or two more starts to question the flu shot, seeing and hearing it can kill or transform you will have its effect, no matter if its TV-based or not. This is a good thing, something the Canadian government seems to have understood recently.

The fantastic Morena Baccarin from the Show:

The leftie government use leftie tactics

What left governments do better than anyone else is to be in opposition to themselves. If their policies have failed in some regard, they rally against it. If unemployment goes up they demonstrate against unemployment, if the economy falters, they complain about the economy. For some reason this tactic seems to be quite effective, votes in general elections prove it. Now the current Swedish government does the same.

Unemployment among youngsters is sky-high, so what to do? Of course argue that this problem needs to be solved. The center party - one out of four parties of the government - now wants to make this issue a main topic during next year’s election.
To a certain degree these problems cannot merely be blamed on the current administration, they inherent a country with many faults and the financial crisis didn’t arise from their mistake. However, during three years lots could have been done to solve problems, to change legislation and get things going. Instead of mortgaging our future with huge loans they could have cut expenditures, instead of giving hundreds of billions to banks and the rich they could have changed the rules and laws comes to the labor market.

But worst of all is that the government has given the central bank free range to destroy the economy. If you think the unemployment rate is bad today, what do you think will happen when the next crashes cometh from the gigantic bubbles being created right now?

We’re heading for huge abyss, and it’s just up the road. If nothing is soon done to prepare and change what needs to be changed, there will be no future to talk about.

Government expenditures should be cut in half, or more. Interest rates need to go up to 6%, or more. The fascist internet laws need to be scraped immediately, and while we’re at it, we should eliminate another thousand laws. If this is done now, it would plunge the country deep into recession for a year or so, and then we would come out on the other side richer, more productive and better than any country on earth. If not, well… goodbye prosperity, and hello poverty and despair.

Let the stupid thing die already

One of the most misskept and horrible companies of the world, SAAB automobiles, seem to be going down. The current owner, General Motors, have no real interest in reviving it, and the supposed take-over was, as I’ve said before, more or less a scam.

Good. Let the stupid thing fail, wither and die.

The Swedish government is unwilling to buy or support the scrapheap, and they shouldn’t. A company that hasn’t even heard of the word ‘profit’ in decades is a failed institution, it has no place whatsoever. Too bad that the government didn’t apply the same logic comes to the big insolvent zombie banks. For some reason we apparently need to give hundreds of billions to banks, affectingly transferring money from the poor to the uselessly rich. If there would be a choice between SAAB and the banks, the money should of course go to the manufacturing car company; at least they do produce stuff, stuff no one wants, but still. The banks are just in the way.

If you cannot fail and our tax money always comes to the rescue, there’s neither any incentive to do good or actually be a productive company. Many people has a misconception that capitalism is a friend of the big corporations, it’s not. In a true market economy you need to be good at what you do, showing profits, otherwise you have no place in it. Only in a fascist or socialist economy can the rich and powerful fail but still make money, curtsey of the state, or, in actuality, curtsey of the taxpayer. In this sense capitalism is and always will be the best friend workers and the poor can ever have.

Let’s kill ‘em all!

This is one of funniest things I’ve ever seen. Hilarious really. And I cannot be alone feeling the urge to knock off some murderess Polar Bears. They are increasing in numbers, they are in the way and they do actively hunt people. Let’s kill ‘em all! The real way that is, not the fictions environmental crap.
