Quake update

A tsunami alert has been issued after a earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 (7.0) struck off southern Japan.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) said the quake struck at 0531 (2031 GMT) 84km (52 miles) east of Naha, on the island of Okinawa, Reuters news agency reports.
The quake, only 29km (18 miles) below the seabed, is pretty dangerous and can very well have created a tsunami.

And if you haven’t got the Quake Alert add-on for your browser, you should. It’s really funny to imagine that people are running for their lives right now from after- shocks and a potential tsunami. And you get to find out before almost all others.

Legalize self-defense now

Every day our papers and news are filled with shop or home owners getting robbed, stabbed, and beaten.

Families get attacked, women get raped and all the time the only thing the police can do is to pick you up and drive you to the hospital.

Catching the perpetrator?

Well, in the few cases the police actually use their resources for other things than chasing down file-shares, cannabis smokers, and people driving little too fast and other hardened criminals, they do sometimes catch one or two. Mostly by accident since only the highly stupid, the very young or the extremely high ones are so dumb they get caught.

There are two reasons why self-defense should be legal.

Firstly every person should be able to defend themselves against any attacker. This ought to be an absolute human right no-one should even question. To a certain extent this is allowed in most countries, but only to a point. The number of people getting convicted for using too much violence or hurting the actual criminal is staggeringly high. Often the victim might even get more jail-time than the attacker, which is absolutely horrific.

The second reason why people should be able to defend themselves is because of the same reason self-defense is illegal. The main offender, the entity that hurt and kills most people worldwide and the main murderer of man throughout the ages is also the entity that doesn’t want you to be able to defend yourself; Your Government.

Nothing comes even close to government when we talk about violence. Even if we put all robbers, thieves, rapists or serial killers together they wouldn’t even compete in the same league.

But citizens cannot be allowed to defend themselves against government, how would that look? If we were allowed to defend ourselves would we then pay for politician’s lavish lifestyle? Would we willingly give away our property to the city council? Could they take away most of our paycheck and buy private jets and build statues of themselves if we, the people, are armed?

This is what they are afraid of, not being able to control you, me and everyone else. And so self-defense is outlawed.

But by all means, don’t listen to me, listen to this woman:

It is better that shop keepers get stabbed to death, women get raped every day and that people live in fear than that they are armed and can defend themselves. This is the essence of government.

I think it is time for us the people to stand up for ourselves. Time to get armed. Time to actually say ‘I am going to defend myself, if you lock me up for that, I will defend myself again, this time against you’

Bitches shouldn’t celebrate!

Canada beat USA with 2-0 to win the Olympic gold medal in the women hockey tournament. As most of us know females shouldn’t play such sports, they ought to stay at home cooking dinner and watching out for their young.

And they certainly shouldn’t drink champagne. Alcohol is bad for you, so the righteous has told us, how dare these women flaunt their drinking habits in public? Just because they won the medal? Please.

I think Gilbert Felli, the IOC's executive director of the Olympic Games, said it best when he argued that the antics were "not what we want to see." He also said: "If they celebrate in the changing room, that's one thing, but not in public."
Presumably he too would like to see the ladies taking a shower and covering each other with bubbly beverages, but, as said, not in public.

Another thing noticed was that the ladies were smoking cigars, and you don’t need a degree in Freudianism to see what this means.

Surely these so called athletes have forfeited all of their credibility. For God’s sake! There were families watching! Why didn’t they think of the chiiiiiildreeeeen! ?

But at least a statement released late Thursday, Hockey Canada apologized. "The members of Team Canada apologize if their on-ice celebrations, after fans had left the building, have offended anyone," the statement said.

Damn right you offended us. Drinking, smoking, smiling and being happy. Who the hell do you think you are?

The Virtuous elite know what’s best for us and that certainly do not include alcohol or tobacco – and so I urge the IOC to take immediate steps to ban the ladies from ever playing again.
