Garlic Criminals fight the system

Time to score some garlic…

The Swedish customs and excise has exposed a smuggling operation which operates across the EU and has Sweden among its destinations.

The good in question? Garlic.

Yeah, that’s right. High EU import tariffs have rendered the humble vegetable, a must have for a range of culinary dishes, a valuable commodity.

What have Transylvanians to say about this one?

To circumnavigate the punitive tolls, the shipments of garlic are instead fenced (ha-ha) through Norway, a country which allows duty-free imports, before finding their way onto the streets of Sweden and other EU countries. Recently a shipment of 22 pallets of the offending onion was recently seized in Svinesund in western Sweden during a daring custom raid.

Do I even need to comment further on this hilarious story?

When are governments going to learn? If people want something, it may be drugs, vodka, porn or garlic, they will get it. It doesn’t matter what the punishment is or what the righteous elite says. In the history of mankind bans on sort after goods have always, without exception, failed. It has never worked and it will never work.

There are only two possible explanations for our masters to try this idiocy again and again. Either they are the most idiotic people around or they want to make people into criminals. Idiots they could be, but not that dumb. Instead the second choice is far more likely.

The more laws, the more criminals.

and that's the way uh ha uh ha the government likes it uh ha uh ha

The harsher the punishment, the more power to government.

and that's the way uh ha uh ha the government likes it uh ha uh ha

Politicians want you to break the law, not follow it. This is the truth and you better wake up and smell the garlic before it is too late.

How close is it?

I’ve been going on about the end of life as we know it for many years now. Mostly I have been regarded as a tin-foil-mitten wanking conspiracist. However, I’ve been right so far…

Since two years back (since the crisis emerged in the public consciousness) I have sort of been vindicated and watching libertarians (sort off) making movies about the next upcoming disaster or write rambling about our big problems on their blogs after reading my stuff kind of tickles the nerves. I’m not saying my tedious thrown out there views are in any way the primary reason for such outburst of sanity, but I do feel like I have had a part in the revival of some peoples intellect.

The problem with such newly awakened or the ones that are (or have been) waving warning flags is that they don’t see the whole picture or fail to understand how deeply imbedded in shit we really are. Even loudmouthed insanoes like Alex Jones and Max Keiser are actually very conservative in their predictions.

And no, I am not one of those that see reptilians in the British royal family or think that Illuminati’s are puffing on fat cigars while going Moha ha ha in dark rooms. Neither am I sold on the NWO conspiracy theory or have seen too many movies about 2012. I just look at the facts, the basic fundaments and the economic numbers and see that never before in human history have so many countries been so absolutely screwed like they are right now.

Thankfully (or sadly according to me) we’ve also never been so rich. This is mainly what is keeping the scam rolling along. The general thought among libertarians and free market advocates is that globalization (the good capitalist one) and the spread of ideas across the globe have lifted billions up from poverty during the last 50 or so years and for a while we could almost believe that we had actually learned something from history. Not that things were perfect. We still had mad central banks and as a consequence inflation, we still had socialist planning and horrible government schemes like minimum wage, but mostly people seemed to understand that free markets and at least some capitalism was necessary to bring prosperity and peace to our lands.

This is almost true.

A couple of things are missing.

Firstly during the course of time inflation and mad lending practices has eaten up all economic advances. In some countries they are poorer today than 50y ago. You hardly ever hear this fact from libertarian economists. They don’t see it. They see the stuff. We have more stuff, better stuff, more shiny stuff. Cars are better, faster, and safer and we hardly need to mention things like computers and cell phones. That we are in debt is secondary…

Our entire system is built on debt. Everything around you comes with one, two or more IOU’s. 50y ago people in general put a down payment and had paid off their homes within a decade or two. Can you imagine anyone outside the elite structure managing this today? 50y ago a house cost about 3-4 times people annual salary. Today a house cost 9-10 times the average annual salary. Is it the extra stuff? Hardly.

I could go on and on but the rambling is secondary, the point is that our entire society and our way of life is built upon, with, around and contingent on debt. 99.99% of all economists say that there’s nothing wrong with this and partly I agree. Debt in itself isn’t the problem.

The problem comes into light when you see debt together with inflation and our producing capacity. The “stuff” I talk about need to be produced and seeing that we have more stuff than ever one could assume that we produce a lot. We don’t. We consume it.

You see there’s a difference between first producing and then buying versus buying on credit. The more we tap out our credit cards, the more we borrow to buy stuff - the less is over for investments and actual production. It may sound contrary and for an economist reading this he’ll never be as confused as he is right now. But the fact is that we have, since many years back, gone over the line of healthy producing-buying over to the borrowing-spend side. There’s a huge gap formed and this abyss is painted over with debt. As long as we continue to borrow to spend (exponentially) we have no problem. Central banks, inflation and a so so free market have made this idiocy possible.

No more money available for consumers to borrow so they can buy that very necessary third car? Easy. Government can print lots of new piles of cash, or (funny enough) they borrow it so the consumer can borrow it. Debt upon debt. Governments and economists love this hilarious little game. They can play Santa and make the spending binge go on and on and….

…Nooo.. they can’t. This is the problem. There is an end to it. Somewhere the limit is reached. Debt cannot be piled up indefinitely. There’s a limit.
And this is where we are today.

As said, debt in itself isn’t so bad. It can be paid back, but in steps inflation and our low producing capacity.

Inflation, which in reality is both a hidden tax and the way they fool us to think we’re getting richer, is also built into the system. This is our master’s holy cow. Inflation is good for us, at least some of it. Most likely you’ve probably heard economists try to explain how 2-3-4% inflation is a good thing? Of course 5% is slightly bad for some reason. But worst of all is deflation! Oh, the horror with lower prices and the murderess madness that comes when you can buy more for each coin. Prices need to go up, how else do we feel the need to borrow and spend more in that divine exponential way?

Remember the bailouts and stimulus packages? They printed and borrowed that money in order to encourage borrowing and spending. Inflation comes with as a bonus.

And now when some governments seem to realize their mistakes and are looking to save money and cut expenditures the entire system is in danger. So when Krugman and other hacks are saying that less spending may trigger another economic collapse they are correct. It will. But not in the way and for the reasons such idiots argue.

We have reached the end of the line. There is no more debt that can be sought up. If they print more money hyperinflation is the next thing around the corner. And the crash will happen. Nothing can stop our total financial collapse now. It is too late. If we were to borrow, spend and print even more all we would be doing is increase the flames and ensure our total demise.

We have reached the end of the line and this is where we are today.

Interesting enough this isn’t it. Even this we could manage. Inflation and sky-high debt mountains could be repaid and fixed. In a few years we could regain our producing capacity. Looking at only the mentioned problems we would still have a depression, but a minor one and not the earth shattering event now facing us.
You see there are a bunch of other factors needed to be added to the equation. The biggest is probably the derivatives scam. We have trillions upon trillions upon trillions of debt on NOTHING. Derivatives have no value. Nada. And they exist everywhere and they are seldom even mentioned. I’ve heard somewhere (don’t remember were or who said it) that the total air in derivatives can be counted up to 100 trillion dollars. If true only this little scam is enough to plunge us into total darkness.

To this we have several housing markets were banks are buying houses from themselves to hide both losses and to keep prices up. We have several commodity markets getting manipulated. We have protectionism on the rise. And the stale and stagnant government controlled societies we live in don’t help either. Needless to say the amounts, the scams and the problems are many, countless many seen globally. And these problems exists in practically every country on the planet.

To this point, despite what I wrote in the start, many of my fellow libertarians, gloomy forecasters and other thinking individuals can relate and be in agreement. They may dismiss one thing or complain about one or two numbers but in general I would say most of they are with me.

However there is one thing left. The worst thing of all. The very essence of all problems and the very entity we can trace every little disaster back to. You.
Free thinking individuals and libertarians in particular have faith in people. They believe that once the problems are obvious and the crash really starts we will suddenly become rational, see the light and bow down to the miracle that is capitalism. At least people won’t go back to worshiping funny little hysterical men with hysterical solutions who dream of world conquest. This much we have learned. Right?


You are an idiot and so is your mom, your neighbor and everyone around you. And when you get together in groups you even upgrade to the loony sycophant level with no concept of reality. People in general are so horrible amoebic that they believe in fairytales like welfare and cash for clunkers programs. The waste mass of anti-intellectual slugs will of course throw themselves at the feet of any well-spoken madman regardless of swastikas or red flags around him.
Why would the sheople that has voted for and cheered on the build-up of the collapse suddenly evolve synapses?

When the fierily economic inferno starts to blast its way into people’s lives they will start with the obvious targets such as sitting governments, the police and such. But then they will start to look for direction, guidance and leadership. And lord and behold, there they will be, those funny people that will welcome any cannon fodder.

This is the scenario that is most likely to occur. And with weapons of mass destruction available for any chemical student things can (and most likely will) turn very nasty and bloody.

If we have over 3 billion people on this planet 20y from now I’ll be very surprised.

So when will the fun start? My previous due-date (right now) predicted over ten years ago has actually passed, sort of. The crisis never left, they never fixed it as they want you to think. It has been here and is still here. We are actually living in a depression right now. Not according to the definition, but in all other thinkable way. The Tsunami likeness I’ve mentioned several times is very accurate. Out on the sea you can almost never see it. Even the biggest Tsunamis are hardly detectable in the middle of an ocean. But when reaching the shoreline you better watch out. The problem with this financial Tsunami is that it is not only already huge, it also increase in both speed and size for each day we allow the statism and Keynesianism to continue.

I recon we have about a year of decent normality left. Maybe two at the most. See? 2012? Uh…

Well…we have seen some gloomy sentences in the news lately and the stock markets (extremely overvalued!) have the hiccups so don’t be surprised if an increasing downward spiral spins out of control very soon.

England suck

Time for some football ramblings...

I said before the World Championship that the English should be lucky if they get past the group stage, and they were. Playing games so badly that they may have been the worst team to watch in the tournament they didn’t deserve to go through to get outplayed by Germany.

The English team is by far the most overrated national team on home soil I can think off. They have one decent attacker, a half winger, a poorly put together midfield and a stubby defense. Why do English people think they can win anything?

Is it the coach fault? To some degree yes, but no-one can do magical spells to transform mediocre overpaid players into a killing machine that wins tournaments.

As a Swede maybe someone thinks I should elevate Sven-Göran Eriksson, but I won’t. I give him an okay period and on a couple of occasions the English team can blame bad luck for not going further in previous tournaments under my countryman’s leadership. He did squeeze the best out the team on a couple of occasions and should be remembered as doing an okay job, but as said, no-one can transform a bad team into champions.

If you were to put together a football team and had unlimited resources – how many English players would make it? I wouldn’t choose a single one. Maybe Rooney would make it to the bench, maybe, but otherwise? And this is the problem, not the coach. I can find players in pretty much every national team on the planet that, depending on how you put together the team, would be considered. But not one from the English team.

Owen Hargreaves is the only decent defensive midfielder, but I can easily count 30-40 players that surpass him. John Terry at his peak might break into a top ten list of defenders, but certainly won’t today. Gerrard and Lampard are good midfielders but both rely heavily on teammates and need support, what English player can provide that? The goalkeepers are competent but I can find competent goalies in Estonia without even trying. Worse still is the right and left midfield. When did a English side have a really good player on either of those positions? Beckham is the only one that comes to mind over a 20y period - he was an excellent complement always doing his job, always running and doing what he does best, but he was never someone to build a team on.

The big teams of the world can muster two, maybe three whole teams that wouldn’t disappoint. England cannot produce one. So why the hell does the English people think so highly of their national side? Because of the Premiership? Who are the best players and coaches there again...? The average English side knows how to kick, run and fight through a game and they do it very well. Passing? Technique? Not so much. England has 50 teams that do perform pretty well, but could never surmount to anything else but “pretty well”. The three, four or five top teams are excellent but mainly so because of foreign imports, foreign coaches and foreign tactics. And how many really good goal scorers are English in the entire English league system? 2? 3? Even my country Sweden has better attackers.

To change this three things need to be done.

Firstly get a National Team coach that can build for the future. Capello is a great coach, but not someone to rely on to build a team 5-6y into the future. This is the reason he should leave, not because the national side is horrible at the moment. Arsene Wenger would be perfect. Maybe Ferguson despite his age. And both the people and the press need to see this and get behind it. Maybe the national team will lose half of the games in the beginning. So what? Build for the future and let them do it. See it for what it is and fuck the upcoming European championship 2012. If you get there, fine, but if not it’s not the whole world. You’re not good enough to win it anyway, start with the crying when you actually have a chance.

Secondly English players need to get out in the world. Premier league may be one of the best leagues in the world, but English players need to gain experience, get new influences and see new things. I cannot mention a single English player outside the British Isles. This must change! Send a couple of youngsters to Ajax, Barcelona, Werder Bremen or Bocca Juniors, they know how to build good players. Send coaches and entire teams out in the world every summer to learn and experience new things. Take what is good and bring it home and adopt it to the English mentality. And stop paying ridiculous sums for mediocre players. An English player whose equals you can find on the continent for a third of the price isn’t worth it just because he’s English. Too much national pride, too much elevation for the English players. They are not good enough. Face it and change it.

And third, find the heart again. Even when British teams are not so good they have, historically, still managed to fight, run and bring a huge heart to the game which can rock any team. Attitude, fighting spirit and heart can take you very far. English players will never be better than Brazilians comes to technique or better then Italians comes to defense. You also lack some organization which is why Nordic and German teams still beat you again and again. But with new influences, new training tactics, more players out in the world and with a team built for the future that extra beating heart can make you win trophies.

Lastly I need to really point out that many people laugh at you every time it comes to world championship and both the English players and press thinks you can win the tournament. It’s ridiculous and has so been for decades. You’re not good enough. Most of the world’s pundits outside Britain know this - get real. Even the best teams take a game at the time. Some players may mention holding the trophy, but mentally they prepare for their next opponent, not a distant final. Probably the best thing Sven-Göran actually said and did and probably also why he wasn’t so liked in the end. He’s a realist and takes things step by step. The English seem to think the team should prepare for the final even before the tournament starts. Idiots.

More things that didn’t happen

As we all know societies with straight gun-control were only the police are supposed to be armed no-one ever gets shot. This is certainly true for Sweden were two people didn’t get gunned down last night in Malmö and last night a young man didn’t get his home perforated by several armed assailant in a suburb to Stockholm.

Nope, that never happened.

And of course the police aren’t looking for the armed robbers that performed a heist recently. Nope, no such thing.

We can also be reasonably sure that such none-events are usually, but not always, carried out by armed immigrants disillusioned by government policies. Writing such things automatically labels one as a racist so just in case that epithet isn’t thrown at me; it is usually a black/Hispanic/Arabic young man caught in some drug mafia because politicians think that drugs should be illegal while people demand lots of drugs and he’s is tired of being pushed around and getting called “weak” by authorities that are working under the assumption that they can ease his anger by throwing ‘free stuff’ at him.

While the police beat him up well-spoken elected frauds are telling him they are his friends and will increase his welfare check if he votes correctly.

But that scenario didn’t happen either and such people don’t exist. Nope, nothing to see here folks. Move along.

Some people are doing something

The reoccurring and close to traditional protests at G-20/G-8 meetings, latest seen in Toronto, is mostly a lefty idiocy. There are anarchist thugs, inbreed communists and your average run of the mill socialist assholes. Generally speaking the ones hurling bottles at the police, torching cars and screaming intellectual sentences like “uff, uff” or “ugha ugha” are rather part of the problem and all they are really doing is worsening the situation.

Still, I cannot help feeling slightly sympathetic. They are doing something. Reacting.

I have hardly anything in common with these idiots. They want more of the same socialism that brought us the problems in the first place, they want closed markets, they want to put an end to the last tiny remanence of capitalism we have and they destroy private property to get their voices out. Nothing of this speaks to me. I once argued that the best thing we could do is to put tanks on the streets and run them all over, to a large degree I still think that.

Still, I cannot help applauding most of their actions.

While our saviors and benefactors in very expensive suits dine and feast after debating how much more Keynesianism they will throw into the financial fierily Armageddon they have created, the black hooded lefties are fighting the hired guns of the police to bring attention to want is really going on. And what are you doing?

The elected frauds and pranksters you have elected are, together with big banks and certain shadowy groups, robbing us blind right now and they have been doing so for many decades. And what are you doing to stop it? Voting for the same again? Sitting at home and maybe, perhaps complaining at the dinner table? Nothing at all?

Have you ever wondered; if all political sides are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits? If all politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? If all politicians want full employment and want to help the poor, WHY do we have high unemployment and so many poor people?

Consider this; 50y ago in a western household a family could survive on one salary. Sure they didn’t have the same level of technology, but they survived, many even thrived, and most didn’t have debt coming out of their ears despite owning a house and a couple of cars. Today we need at least two salaries in a household to get by, and this with a higher level of technology and much higher productivity. Why do you think that is? Have you ever asked that question?

We should be able to live on half of one salary today compared to 50 years ago; instead it is the other way around. HAVE YOU WONDERED WHY THIS IS?

For many years - in my opinion since the dawn of agriculture - we have had the means and wealth to feed, clothe and equip every single person on this planet. Several times over. Still a billion people are starving, and even in the ‘modern’ developed countries there’s massive unemployment and misery. HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY THIS IS?

Our Integrity is gone, completely. CCTV cameras are popping up everywhere; internet is roamed by supercomputers and thousands of faceless bureaucrats looking for a way to lock you up. There’s not a single country on this planet that allows citizens to have basic human rights. Most of us (all) are controlled, monitored, checked, bullied, watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, estimated, valued, censured and commanded from the cradle to the grave. And the funny thing is; we are ourselves paying for this pleasure!

The developed world's economic policy has of late been dominated by the revival of the old insane idea that vast amounts of public spending could prevent deflation, cure a recession, and ignite a new era of government-led prosperity. That this notion is a mathematical impossibility and lacking all forms of logical and intellectual reasoning has been ignored. Even funnier, you have all voted for it, wanting it, rooting for it. And the stone throwing lefties at these summits should be happy - it’s basically their ideas.

Something is seriously wrong with the world and the best indication of this is how good ordinary people are sitting at home getting raped, pillaged and robbed with a smile on their faces while the ones that should be happy are out destroying cars.

Our puppet masters and the ones you’ve been voting for are setting up the biggest crash and the largest tsunami wave of financial disaster ever seen by mankind. The, in comparison, miniscule depression of the 30’s will seem like walk in the park. You thought that the crisis was over didn’t you? Think again. It never left. It has been here all the time, just under the surface bubbling away, gaining momentum. At these G-20 meetings they are discussing how to save their own asses, how to avoid getting stringed up in lampposts in the near future. Because when you ordinary folks finally snap - and you will - one of the first targets for your anger will be the soul-sucking ghouls of politics and they know it.

The socialist hooded thugs have only gone apeshit before you will, sadly for the wrong reasons, but nevertheless they are doing what we all should be doing and what we will be doing soon. Very soon.

So, with that sure as hell prediction in mind is it then any wonder that a small portion of me roots for a gang of leftie misfits throwing bottles?

Home alone?

As a sexy young thing all alone in a dark house with a murderess stranger with a knife on his way in - there’s nothing to do but to get raped, mutilated and killed. Right?

Problem with Dick bloodflow

Apparently the former vice (giving) head of state is at the hospital again. Not a shooting accident mind you just yet another heart incident. The war criminal, that also have been revealed to covering up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because ‘they’ feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, was admitted to the hospital Friday after experiencing discomfort.

Cheney's heart attack earlier this year was his fifth since age 37. A heart attack occurs when blood flow to the heart muscle is blocked.

Me I believe, honestly believe, that the same problem exists for the illicit Dick comes to his little tiny namesake. Isn’t the heart responsible for pumping blood to all limbs? I’ve said it before but it should be said again; one haft to assume that the reason why certain men want to build more ships is that like most men they like big machines with big engines that fire big missiles because they have a deep seated need to overcompensate for their own shortcomings.

And you don’t need to be an arch feminist to see how phallus shaped rockets, phallus shaped missiles and bullets are used in this battle for size measurement.

Maybe a good idea is to offer free extension operations to all men in governing positions?

Anyway, let’s hope the mass murdering thug in question leaves us this time. Not the death hundreds of thousands of murdered would wish for, but a death nevertheless. This fucking dick will not be missed.

From the urbandictionary.com:

1. dick chaney
Shooting someone with a shotgun at close range.
I ran up on this dude with the shotty and Dick Chaney'd his ass!

2. Dick chaney
The hunter of hunters. He will shoot you with a shotgun...hunting some of the smallest birds out there. Good job!
I'm sorry, but I'm in this hospital. Why? Oh, I got dick chaney'd.

3. Dick Chaney
Sexual manuver, in which one person ejectulates into the face of their partner
I pulled a Dick Chaney on Lisa last night and had a hunting accident all over her face

A couple of ’I told you so’

Firstly the oily screw-ups in the Aegean are finally doing one thing right – selling islands and their heritage to foreign interests. Not that it really matters, at least not the nearest years. In the long run some foreigners may create some production, introduce one or two rational thoughts or simply bring in some cashola. But the 12-13% (probably more) in deficits and the sky-high debts cannot be solved by selling some islands. It is a long term plus and as such I applaud it, but, as said, it won’t matter, the Greeks are toast.

Gold is at an all time high again. Remember how pundits have again and again claimed that the limit has been reached? There are tons of manipulations and I won’t go into all the scams going on, but Gold is still a great buy even if the price is kept ‘too high’ because the next crash (soon) will double or more the price. Again we see pundits and knowitallidiots saying that gold can only go down. They’ve been saying that for ten years now. They are idiots and you’re an idiot if you listen.

In the US foreclosures are beating record after record. Authorities, banks and pundits are pondering on how this can be solved. Of course more regulations and looser lending practices is the way out… The latest is that homeowners should keep their homes (which they do already) despite defaulting on their loans and having no prospects. And I cannot stop laughing…

In Eastern and southern Africa the famine catastrophe is picking up speed. Over 10 million people are at risk of hunger in the Sahel before the September harvests, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO). In Niger, about half of the 13.4 million inhabitants are facing hunger. Up to two million Chadians and hundreds of thousands of Mauritanians and Malians also need assistance. I wrote on this blog over a year ago that if our “saviors” Oduma, froggy Sarkozy, Merkel and the rest of the criminals are allowed to go through with their mad schemes tens of millions of Africans would die. We are not really there yet, but play with the thought that the next harvest fails or a couple of new warlords start having fun. Because that never happens in Africa… Or let’s say that the world plummet down that abyss am waiting and rooting for. Either way, or probably both at the same time, millions, tens of millions will die and in reality it is your fault. You have voted for it. Well, Africans in general are idiots so they have themselves to blame, but your part in this is also clear

Be back soon with more ‘I told you so’…
