I want my Swede well-done please

A Swedish tourist has died after falling into the crater of an active volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali. The 25-year-old man slipped as he tried to peer into the crater on Wednesday after a dawn trek to the summit of Mount Batur. Apparently he was looking into the crater, slipped and fell 150 metres.

And since there wasn’t that much lava-flow at the site they are trying to recover the body. Should be quite a crispy corps otherwise.

The story doesn’t tell us if he was a virgin either. Chucking of a (female) virgin into the volcano is one of those popular movie stories and strange religions exists everywhere so one never knows.

A reason as good as any to deflower virgins.

Anyway, I cannot help myself laughing while reading a story like this. That probably means I will get killed by a plastic spoon or slip on a banana and break my neck in the future, but I cannot help it. It would have been even funnier if the guy had hit the lava bed, but we cannot get everything at once now can we.

The next excuse

The first step in the defending-the-totalitarian-justice-minister case was to diminish what she says and does. It wasn’t so bad, not really, fascist yes, but a nice one.

And it was taken out of context; we have all gotto realize that sitting in a seminar for which the Minister, who has been in politics her whole life, had many days to prepare for, well, then it is very easy to utter totalitarian opinions. Of course taking six days to come up with a very lame excuse that she later withdrew referring to the general election is very reasonable.

Also, she loves innocent children so much that she will force them into submission, strap them down, and while they are crying and protesting the ministers caring personality make her put needles into their tiny bodies and force them to pee in a coup. All being done while the parents know nothing about it and under the suspicion of somethingsomething (very vague).

After that we learned that it was the colors of envelops the minister wanted to send to suspected and innocent people that had upset a whole country. Yes, sure, indeed.

Now the next spin from the doctors at media has arrived. How can anyone think that our Minister of Justice wants to bring us unto a football field and shot us? Do bloggers really think that the minister is evil incarnate and has plans for neck-shots, Gulag camps and torture chambers?

Sort of implying that we’re overdoing it and taking it too far.

Of course the journalist whores do have a point. Many have taken it too far, at least in contrast to the old media and mainstream pundits. I’m guilty for that offence myself.

However, if we hadn’t, the Justice Ministers transgressions would have gone by pretty much unnoticed. Her totalitarian views had been buried very quickly and yet another nail in the coffin containing justice, fairness, democracy, integrity and freedom would have been hammered in without anyone complaining.

For a couple of years now Sweden has very rapidly been turning into an Orwellian nightmare. The acronyms are very well-known; FRA, IPRED, ACTA - just to mention a few. Everything we do, all communication whether it is by phone or online activities is recorded, saved and acted upon by authorities. Cameras are popping up everywhere; seemingly Britain is the country to follow. Private companies have police authority and can storm your home without a warrant and steal all your appliances.

The Justice Minister have been behind and involved in all of this, so when she says she wants to play dominatrix and brutally abuse our children and then utters the most chilling sentences ever said by a Swedish minister, of course people will lose it.

The only surprise so far is that people are still very calm about all this. They should be out burning down public buildings and storming the Bastille. That’s the reaction we should be seeing.

But to me the most frightening thing in this entire story is how little media reacts. A few independent journalists have been saying the minister has gone too far, but mostly they’ve come to her aid. Supporting her saying that; okay it was stupidly said by the minister, but let’s move on...

For me you cannot see the sentences and opinions uttered by our JUSTICE MINISTER by itself. It has to be put in a context. By itself it is bad enough, she should resign, get sacked or, preferably, get rolled in tar and feathers and get thrown out of the country. But if we look at what has been going on lately and if we put her totalitarian views together with the torture of children and the STASI-like society being built, it gets a lot worse.

Her opinions, that she obviously has - it wasn’t a fluke or a drunken spat – is yet another symptom of where we are heading. Our future looks very grim and if we let Ministers get away with crap like this, we’re heading for a horrendous society very fast.

And no, I don’t think the opposition will change things. If they do, it will be for the worse.

This is about preserving our last freedoms, our last remaining democratic rights. So even if none of us actually thinks the Minister in question have the genocide-genome, her statements and the general actions of the powers that be is certainly leading in that fascist direction.

Shouldn’t we speak up? Are we to shut up and bend over? Is that what journalists want? Are they really that pissed at alternative news and blogs that they rather see a totalitarian state then have ordinary citizens take their jobs away?

You’re an idiot and we need fascism

Humans are too stupid to prevent climate change from radically impacting on our lives over the coming decades. This is the stark conclusion of James Lovelock, the environmental non-thinker and independent pseudo scientist who, with his asylum thinking, developed the Gaia hypothesis.

"I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change," said Lovelock and continued: “One of the main obstructions to meaningful action is ‘modern democracy’. Even the best democracies agree that when a major war approaches, democracy must be put on hold for the time being. I have a feeling that climate change may be an issue as severe as a war. It may be necessary to put democracy on hold for a while."

There you go. Our governments, the overpaid science clubs and the UN know what’s best for us. If we do not listen to the Church of Climatology it is necessary to eliminate democracy since this is a ‘war’ for climate.

And we all know what usually happens to heretics, don’t we?

To his defense he also concludes that all science needs skeptics and he’s not so found of the fiddling, lying and deceit within the UEA email scandal. The later probably because the fraud got exposed.

Scary shit you might think, but this guy is pretty harmless in comparison to the people that thinks babies are carbon monsters and that pets need to be killed to stop global warming.

Already today thousands are dying because of the regulations, the taxation and the totally mad schemes perpetrated by these spokespersons of eugenics. That is seemingly not enough and we’ll soon see a lot more of these Malthusians population control freaks, mark my words.

Stupid black people - and some fast food

The American Food and Drug Administration’s Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee will meet March 30 and 31 in Washington, D.C. to discuss background information about menthol cigarettes that could end up in a future report by the secretary of Health and Human Services.

Specifically, the panel will examine the use of menthol cigarettes among African Americans, and the potential health effects of the flavored smokes over regular cigarettes. Not too strange since The Congressional Black Caucus have been calling for changes to the House tobacco-regulation, demanding that the legislation place restrictions on menthol cigarettes, the type heavily favored by African-American smokers.

This is of course a very offensive bit of government paternalism. African-Americans need to be saved from themselves.

Remember how marijuana got to be illegal in the US? It was the horrible Negroes roaming the countryside, stoned beyond belief, raping white women and committing crimes that created that legislation. It would seem like that sort of racism lives on.

This anti-smoking crusade is as stupid as the war on drugs or the prohibition period. People know today that they get cancer, lower lung capacity and yellow teeth.

But of course the made-up enemies never stop coming. Now it seems like the Brits have found a new enemy…

From the ever qualitative Daily Mail we learn that Junk food 'is as addictive as heroin and cigarettes'. Yapp, apparently sausages, bacon and cheesecake are highly addictive and that once you've tasted them you will be craving them forever.

I wonder if people of color are in the crosshairs on this one too. Probably since people of African and Indian decent seem to be overrepresented within the fast food industry.

Leftie policies again

Sweden's ruling alliance said on Tuesday it planned to invest 482 billion Swedish Krona ($66.8 billion) over the coming 11 years in infrastructure projects.

The government, which faces a general election in September, said 417 billion of the spending would come from central government finances with the remainder from the European Union and local government coffers.

Isn’t this interesting? They already have a deficit and sky-high debts, but that’s not enough, they need to steal more money from the private sector to build their monuments to a higher price and with lower efficiency than the alternative. This is true socialist planning and if you ever wanted confirmation that the current Swedish government loath capitalism, this is it.

Don’t get me wrong, if they necessarily need to waste money, infrastructure is one of the least wasteful projects. It helps trade along, communication gets better and you often get a good trickledown effect. I prefer this before departments doing whatnot and their usual projects, but that’s not what this is about. They are not going to take the money from existing income, oh no, this will be borrowed and printed money together with the extra income they get from fees paid from traffic cameras and road tolls.

But the worst thing about this is of course government incompetence. As shown from history and previous similar ‘investments’ millions will disappear in departments, millions more will be wasted on meetings, expropriation of private property and wrong decisions.

If we instead let the market buy all roads and infrastructure that income could be used to pay of the public debt and the maintenance and investments of our infrastructure would come with a fraction of the price.

Arctic Summit sucks icicles

The Arctic Summit being held outside Ottawa. Iceland, a member of the international Arctic Council, has been left out of the talks, and has already voiced its annoyance over the snub. Sweden and Finland, members of the International Arctic Council, are also absent.

The European Union was recently blocked by Canada and others from gaining even "observer" status. The Inuit, who will have to live with the consequences of any new government policies, and other aboriginal groups, are also irritated by their exclusion.

The talks were supposed to be informal with discussions on how to explore "new thinking on economic development and environmental protection" in the polar region.

The Arctic Summit is being held just ahead of a two-day meeting of G8 foreign ministers, and one cannot help thinking there’s a thought behind this. When politicians meet beforehand and exclude certain others it usually means that deals are being made, shadowy policies drawn and some sort of consensus reached in order to have a unified voice in some following preceding.

Expedited investments in northern infrastructure by all five Arctic nations have been in the works for a long time as they prepare for increased activity in the region, including tourism, oil and gas exploration and trans-Arctic shipping.

Whenever there are resources up for grabs there will be a power struggle and while our economic calamities continues I see no reason why the elitists will not look for new areas to exploit, so the Arctic probably looks like a tasty buffet.

In other words this seemingly harmless exclusion and talks may actually be a prelude to something more sinister and serious.

The best thing that could be done here is to let the market buy and sell Arctic as it wishes. When government gets involved you know that they will screw it all up.
