Watch it and weep.....

A comment to this post said in part “I recall looking at the cover of a National Geographic magazine sporting a photo of 3 or 4 red-haired Irish children standing next to a Shetland pony. That photo portrayed the quintessential Irish-ness of Ireland that relates back to over a thousand years. So, frankly speaking, it's difficult for me to imagine a Black African child walking the streets of Dublin and speaking with an Irish accent.”

Well my friend, take a look at this video shot. When I saw it first I thought it was faked in some way, but it wasn’t. It's featured extensively in the MSM (so it must be true!). Shows two things, first how the Irish economy is going down the tubes, and second, how the composition of our population is, well, going down the tubes.

Another comment from Kuwari, a South African ex-pat living in Ireland, says “the Irish also need to learn to do the shite jobs again i.e. flipping burgers etc. The government has already put a ban on giving jobs to immigrants below $30K per year.”

He’s absolutely right. In fact I think that this was one of the great strategic mistakes made by white South Africans – they came to ‘need’ the multiple domestic and garden helpers too much. That attracted them into, or close to, white areas, from which they’ll never be removed.

Anyway, watch the video. And weep.

More double standards

Thanks to the Ven. Earl of Cromer and the excellent Lambeth Walk site for this piece of info. It perfectly underlines the Janus-faced nature of racism today. If non-whites practice it, it's fine, if whites do all hell breaks loose.

I was in York again recently, and what a lovely city. A real piece of old England, clean and....white. Just like that other model city, Portland Ore. (see my post here). But it seems, bizarrely, that York's already magnificent image will be 'improved' by the election of a Nigerian half-breed as its beauty queen.Can someone explain this? Presumably in that case the likes of Bradford or Oldham have reached perfection, and maybe Blackburn (see this) will, once the remaining whites have fled. Seriously, this kind of thing really pisses me off.

Anyway, here's an excerpt - the full post can be accessed at the above Lambeth Walk link.

It emerged today that Helen Lawal, a beauty queen of mixed race crowned both 'Miss York' and 'Miss Black Britain', has been left concerned for her safety after her promoter received a racist phone call.The man who left the threats implied that York was a 'white city' with no place for Miss Lawal." Now, this is clearly reprehensible behaviour, and I unequivocally condemn it; even if you disagree with something, I don't see the purpose in threatening violence. Miss Lawal is a medical student and by all accounts an upstanding citizen, and in any case her background isn't something she can be held personally responsible for. However, having said that, she seems very much clued in on the current state of politically correct Britain. According to the last census, just 3% of York's population was born outside the United Kingdom or the European Union.

According to the Mail and Miss Lawal (and ironically the abusive caller), this makes it a 'white' city.What does Miss Lawal think of this? Here is what was reported: When Helen Lawal was crowned Miss York she hoped her mixed race background would help improve the image of the predominantly white historic city.

Ah. So now we get to the part I personally feel is a double standard. If you want a white beauty queen to represent York, an English city, you're an evil racist scumbag. If anyone even dared to suggest that a beauty queen improved the image of a city simply by virtue of being white, there would be an uproar. However, if you think your own non-white background 'improves the image' of the city more than a white beauty queen would, you're an enlightened progressive. One of the comments on the article hit the nail on the head:

No-one should have to endure racist threats. I would like to know what exactly is meant by this "she hoped her mixed race background would help improve the image of the predominantly white historic city". How exactly does mixed race ancestry improve the image of York?- Kate.

Exactly. We're either colour blind, or we're not. There's no in between. It's either racist to judge on colour or origin, or it isn't. One rule for some and another for others simply stokes division."

Well done, Your Earlship!

More video horrors

The United Arab Emirates (UAE), especially Abu Dhabi and Dubai, make much of their and Western-style freedoms.


In fact, like in all Islamic states, there is in the UAE no democratic accountability - in fact there is no accountability at all for that state's rulers. The law, and its administration, are what they say it is. And this can take bizarre and horrendous form, as the attached video shows. It shows one of the ruling family, with the aid of state police, beating and torturing a victim.

Far from being ashamed about it, Sheikh Issa encourages the cameraman to move closer and take a better look. If you're up to it, check this link.

And remember - this is what Islam has in store for us once we finally hand over control to it.

PC takes full control

The extent to which political correctness has taken control is truly frightening. Presumably you’ve read about the unfortunate Miss America, and her humiliation by that disgusting fag Perez Hilton. The girl, in response to a decidedly odd question from that reptile, simply stated that she thought marriage between a man and a woman was better than a same sex one.

For this, Hilton called her a ‘dumb bitch’. Which is bad enough. But now apparently she’s being shunned by modeling agencies and has to face down a barrage of criticism, most of it for being ‘homophobic’, stupid and intolerant. Get the ‘intolerant’ bit. She’s intolerant because she thinks, yes thinks, that heterosexual marriage is better. She didn’t say she’s against same sex marriage, just that it’s not as good. And for that her career is in jeopardy.

Haven’t we reached the stage where Orwell’s New Speak rules, where facts and logic are turned on their heads? I think we have, and it’s a scary place to be.

But let me address another aspect. Some commentators (including some of the those left standing in the MSM) have highlighted what they see as censorial behaviour by ‘liberals’. But I don't see it that way. The Perez Hiltons and their ilk are no more liberals than GW Bush was a conservative.

As I explained in more detail in this post, they are members of a new secular religion, with the full range of crazy ideas and, yes, intolerance that such an entity implies.

Ireland's knowledge economy: ho, ho!

Up to about 10 years ago Ireland had a real chance of becoming a true knowledge economy. We produced huge numbers of graduates in science, technology and engineering (STE) from third level institutions that, while not world-leading, were doing a more than adequate job in terms of quality and employability. These graduates went on to staff, and in many cases create, leading edge knowledge-economy enterprises.

Make no mistake, the achievements were real, and we punched way, way above our weight. At one time we produced more software graduates than Germany (true!) and our software exports were the second highest in the world.

But as I showed in this post (more than two years ago, by the way) we, naturally enough, blew this unique opportunity. And our chances of recovering were dealt a further severe blow over the intervening period by allowing vast numbers of unskilled, non-English speaking immigrants into the country.

Their children are now feeding into our taxpayer-financed primary education sector. Add to these the numbers of students who were born outside the state. And the latter's numbers, according to today’s Irish Independent, amount to one in ten of the current pupil population. Given known demographics, this ratio will continue to rise – and rise rapidly. In some schools the junior infant intake class is 100% non-Irish!

To see the catastrophic impact of such developments in Ireland, check this post. Anyone who's been involved in whole-life education programmes, as I have, knows that ultimate success at second and even third level depends on the quality of primary schooling. So not alone are we, due to the financial crisis, cutting back on educational funding, we’re flooding the system with children who are severely disadvantaged from day one. Self-evidently, the ensuing problems will be reflected in the quality of education received by the rest of the student body.

Hence the cynical laugh when I hear Bryan Cowen fantasising about Ireland’s ‘knowledge economy’. Dream on, and fuck you and the rest of the political and multi-culty class that have ruined our childrens’ futures.

Speaking of which, as you'll see in the last link referred to above, white English-speaking parents are voting with their feet, and moving their children out of ‘diverse’ schooling environments. And they're using a publicly available site which identifies the relevant ratios. I wonder will this be closed down too, on the Stalinist basis that knowledge is dangerous? If not, this trend will in turn lead to de facto segregation, sink-hole schools and the possibility of a bussing-type ‘solution’ if the Victim Industry gets its way.

To Irish readers, just remember, we brought this on ourselves - we saw what happened everywhere else, but we still went ahead.

Niebuhr and Reagan: Update

A great post here from an unfortunately anonymous contributor from the US heartland. I agree entirely that Reagan damaged America in many other ways as this writer makes plain. The purpose of my previous post (and the earlier one on Reagan) was to claim that he wasn't really a conservative, and that his most 'unconservative' impact was to encourage wild spending financed by borrowing, with subsequent catastrophic impact.

But read here my slightly shortened version of this comment - the full text can be seen in the comments section of the previous post.

"The ramifications of the 1965 Immigration Reform Act were just becoming visible by the early 1980s out here in "flyover" country, and not just the large urban coastal (including Chicago and Dallas) area. Reagan accelerated this process by allowing the farm lobby to get him to amnesty a couple of million farm workers.

This amnesty, and allowing the beginnings of outsourcing and HI-B visa immigration, and not focusing on energy alternatives, were his big mistakes. His mistakes were repeated by George Bush the elder from 88-92, but even more so. Bush the elder was the one who intentionally allowed our southern border to become a simple gateway for Central Americans to colonize the United States, Clinton was all too happy to not interrupt the conservatives from making a mistake and continued this trend.

By W-Bush-the-idiots first term, the numbers in demography were very different than Reagan's time, and this nation was beginning to morph into what it is now............divided ethnically. America was 89% white in 1965, almost 90%. Now its only about 70% white and dropping. This was by far our biggest mistake, and its why we will not remain great. [Yes, I totally agree here]

We have not built the nuclear plants we needed to provide energy, we have not developed the high mileage cars we need to be more impervious to rising oil prices, we have not dealt a death blow to the cultural Marxists in our media and academia, and indeed have allowed them to flourish----thereby poisoning our youth mentally and culturally.

We have lived in massive debt, that we are beginning to monetize, we have watched our industrial base shrink by at least one-third, we have not supported science and engineering, but have relied on importing it through cheap foreign students (so fat cat CEO's and boards, and the uber-greedy shareholder class could reap huge profits while paying for innovation on the cheap).

We have devalued the disciplines, math and sciences, that truly build wealth, and let our kids major in bullshit like critical theory, English, journalism, communications, law (we have way too many lawyers now), and business (everybody wants to run the companies and get the big checks, but nobody wants to be the worker bees down the ladder who really make the companies go). [Absolutely on the button! And the same here in Ireland by the way]

We are kind of like Mongolia under Genghis Khan, a great military, but a hollowing economy behind it. Its not completely hollow yet, but its rotting out. A fucking idiot like Obama, who has never been near a wealth-creating job (neither had Bush, Clinton, or Bush the Elder, or Reagan for that matter) don’t really understand how wealth (stuff you can buy) gets made, they just think it magically appears in stores.

We have cheapening labor, but much more expensive land (another gift of diversity is that land and housing cost go through the roof as people outbid each other to escape "diversity"), less social cohesion, low birthrates, too many old people, increasing medical costs (processed foods, commuting, lack of exercise, obesity epidemic especially amongst minorities prone to fatness), a dumber browner young generation, and politically correct platitudes that assure that the un-able have to be hired in positions beyond their competence, and can never be criticized.

The thing is, is that Europe is going to be experiencing much the same, but the minority there (Muslims) are less-behaved than the little Aztecs we have here (bud admittedly behave about as well as our blacks---the most spoiled and pampered group on earth). Russia will eventually become Muslim majority without a big rebound in their birthrates, Australia is headed down that road. [Again, sadly, 100% correct]

My conclusion? The marxiscati knew what they were doing by betting on multiculturalism throughout the west by betting on the greed of the shareholding class Savant. They knew they could slowly dissolve the West and weaken it as they agitate for a one-state-government through the UN as the West degenerates. They also made sure the whole West multiculturalized so that fleeing whites could not go anywhere and start anew like Canada and Australia, who are slowly committing suicide to.

The Marxist abetted the west in rotting itself from the inside out instead of conquering it outright. Replacing the population with third-worlders while undermining the birthrate of natives through no-fault divorce, alimony, child support laws, which make men afraid to father more than two children, while economically attacking the west with outsourcing (and insourcing of tech help) suppressed the total birthrate while the importation of third world masses was occurring..........thus assuring that the change would be very quick instead of slowly over 100 years by which the West could have recognized its path and quickly corrected it."

Great post – thank you for it. Still, it’s depressing, isn't it?

Niebhur and Reagan

Reinhold Niebhur was a brilliant and remarkable prescient scholar. Some of the things he foresaw as far back as the fifties are simply astonishing, especially the dangers to America – and the world- of a Bush/Cheney style regime seizing power. For example he warns that ‘our dreams of managing history pose potentially mortal danger to the United States’. GW – take a bow!

Andrew Bacevich is a latter-day disciple of Niebhur and has time and again called it right, especially in relation to Bush and the Neocons. In his latest book ‘The Limits Of Power’ he makes a point that I made, to considerable opposition from this blog’s readers, in relation to Ronald Reagan. In that post (Reagan and America’s decline) I suggested that, far from strengthening America, Reagan sowed the seeds of its current travails.

Bacevich agrees. He calls Reagan a ‘faux-conservative and the modern prophet of profligacy, who encouraged the fantasy that credit had no limits and that the bills would never come due. He just had a canny knack of telling Americans exactly what they wanted to hear and presided over eight years of gaudy prosperity and excess based on cheap credit and cheap oil.’

Thank you Professor, my views exactly.

He also supports another of my contentions (see here) that ‘Americans have yet to realize that they have forfeited command of their own destiny.’

Sad but true. And when the penny drops it won't be pretty. Scapegoats will be sought, and, as I said here, the possibility of America’s Jews being targeted is a realistic danger.

To my friends...

A belated thank you to all of you who took the trouble to write and offer your support. Nearly 40 comments so far. I take heart. But in any event I had no intention of being silenced. I was merely trying out Wordpress and checking the implications of moving to it in terms of search engine finds etc.

So i'm back posting - and thanks again!

To my adversaries...

As the man said, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. You will all of course be aware that the Google Thought Police have put a health warning on this site. And it’s been effective, up to a point. But it seems some people will never be happy until Newspeak rules the land and contrary opinion is banished from the ether. It’s now come to my attention that another organised campaign (the last one was organised too, by the way) is afoot to silence your Savant and to keep all discussions on race or Islam fact-free.

Now I can empathise with these people up to a point. It must after all be a harrowing experience to have all your cherished illusions demolished, day after day, by irrefutable facts and coruscating logic. Being repeatedly exposed as a deluded fantasist can't be easy. Being reduced to calling your adversary dumb and, er, well, that's it basically - having only one word to counter-attack, must be sooooo frustrating.

As you all know, I'm nothing if not fair, and generous of spirit. Unlike my adversaries, I don't go in for personal abuse. For example I could describe my adversaries as grunting dehumanized beasts with IQs lower than room temperature, credulous psychotic plebeian scum clambering out of a frothing cauldron of madness who, through a toxic brew of ignorance, smugness and self-righteous humbug are tipping the West over the abyss. But I don't say such things. I don't do ad hominem abuse.

But they do. And it hurts. In particular, references to my weight. Now I acknowledge that maybe I could shed a few pounds. But to describe me, as did one irate Canadian as ‘bloated, quivering, obscene – like a beached whale’. Now that hurts. And these people are supposed to be so very PC. For the PC record, I'm not fat I'm, well, horizontally challenged.

So, as you head off, in the glorious tradition of the Inquisition, to stifle non-conforming views, stay your hands. I've downloaded all my treasured material into Wordpress (complete with comments, including your worthless drivel). As and when the Google Mind Control cyborgs strike at your behest, I will, like a phoenix, rise from the ashes to defend your countries, you scabrous pieces of shit. You don’t deserve me!

Oh dear, James, oh deary deary me!

Professor James Lovelock is, as every schoolboy knows, the author who assigned the name Gaia (the Greek earth goddess) to the intricate web of mutual interdependencies that underpin the earth’s environment. His research and writings have provided the momentum for much of today’s environmental/green movement.

He is a deeply respected figure. Or at least he was. Because he’s gone and done a James Watson (see my post here) and will surely suffer the same fate. In an interview with the Irish Examiner he claims that the ever-increasing spread of desertification northwards will put immense immigration pressure on Northern European countries like Ireland. He suggests that Ireland should focus on its own national interest rather than those of would-be immigrants.

Oh dear!
But it gets worse. ‘Your problem will be to keep it a fit place for people to grow up and live in’ Indeed James, indeed. He thinks this will be impossible if vast numbers of sub-Saharan Africans and Bangladeshis descend on the place. ‘You’ve got to be real tough. Your job is to keep them out of Ireland. I'm not being racist, it’s just a matter of numbers’.

Oh my goodness.
But it gets still worse. He thinks that the Chinese are indeed colonizing Africa, but that this could be a good things as the Africans ‘are not doing awfully well on their own’.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!

James, notwithstanding your advanced years (he’s now 90) and your standing as the father of the green movement, you're about to be Watsoned. Even now I imagine the PC alarms are going off in PC Fairyland, the Ministry of Truth are scrutinising your every syllable, and it won't be long before you hear the midnight knock as the Thought Police pay you a visit.

Repent! Repent as your end is nigh.

I will survive...

Another horrific video

It's coming to that time of year when Ireland, er, celebrates, 'Africa Day'. I posted on last year's festivities here. In that post you'll read that one of the cultural enriches here threatens to 'share' Africa's, er, culture, with us.

To get a sense of what that culture might be like, check out this video. I warn you, even by African cultural standards, this is truly horrific.

You have been warned! (mind you, as one comment to this post said, the site that published it is also horrific).

Men's rules

Here's a comeuppance for all you PC bitches who have emasculated the noble white male (thanks Keefey!).

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

3. Sunday sports, It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.

4. Crying is blackmail.

5. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

6. Yes or No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

7. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

8. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days..

9. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

10. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other way

11. You can either ask us to do somethingOr tell us how you want it done. Not both.And if you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

12. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials….

13. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

14. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

15. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

16. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but i t is just not worth the hassle.

17. If you ask a question that you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer that you don't want to hear.

18. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really .

19. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, hockeyor golf.

20. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

Virulent racism lives on!

It’s really not nice to laugh at crazy people, but, as you know, sometimes it’s hard not to.

Consider the following:

A teenage science student has been banned from applying for a training programme with Britain’s Environment Agency because she is white and English. The recruitment agency handling the scheme told Abigail Howarth, 18, that there was no point in her submitting an application because of her ethnic background.

She asked: "Am I correct in assuming that as I am English (White) I need not apply as the preference is for the minorities you have listed, or can I apply anyway?'
Three days later recruitment officer, Bola Odusi (good old English name, that) replied: "Thank you for your enquiry unfortunately the traineeship opportunity is targeted towards the ethnic minority group to address their under representations in the professions under the Race Relations Act amended 2000."
The Race Relations Act amended 2000 has, or claims to have, as its main objective, the elimination of race as a basis for selection. But then these crazy people do exactly that: they select applicants on the basis of race.
Is this crazy or what?
Well yes, crazy on the part of the (rapidly declining) English majority, but not at all crazy for the Victim Industry, which is doing very nicely indeed out of such policies. Whites are alone, totally alone, in this form of Ethnomasochism. Can you imagine Japanese or Arabs, for example, giving preference to a white over one of their own?

And where does it leave the bullshit that ‘race is a social construct with no basis in science’?
It’s suicide Jim, but not as we know it.

A humiliating climbdown

So the Turks have accepted Anders Fogh Rasmussen as the new head of NATO. But not before a groveling apology was extracted from him. "I was deeply distressed that the cartoons were seen by many Muslims as an attempt by Denmark to mark and insult or behave disrespectfully towards Islam or the Prophet Mohammed. Nothing could be further from my mind," he said

But I supposes we must excuse him and NATO, given the importance they see in Turkey remaining an active member of that organization.

And to that I must ask.... exactly how is it important?

That country is rapidy heading down an Islamic route, albeit in a stealthy way and only occasionally letting the mask slip (as I related in this post).

PM Erdogan is on record as stating "Freedoms have limits, what is sacred should be respected." Yes, and they’ve shown how they value freedom when they have the whip hand.

Since taking office in 2002, the AKP under Erdogan has taken control over Turkey's what was until then a largely secular bureaucracy and have by now packed it with Islamists. It has weakened women's rights. It has launched brutal campaigns against its foes in the media, taking over opposition television stations and arresting and intimidating anti-Islamic editors and reporters.

It has taken over the Turkish secret police and regular police forces. It has stacked the Turkish courts with its loyalists. It has enabled the opening of radical Islamic madrassas. It has penetrated the military and demoralized and intimidated the senior officer corps. It has ignored court judgments against it.

Through the police, it has launched a massive wire tapping campaign against its political opponents and has leaked embarrassing transcripts of these tapped phone calls to its loyalist press to humiliate and intimidate its rivals. It has used wiretaps of opposition journalists in police interrogations of their editors.

They support Iran’s nuclear plans and, cccording to a recent Pew international opinion poll, today the Turks are the most anti-American society in the world.

So my question is: Why does NATO want this particular cuckoo in its nest? This particular fox in its hen-house?

Any reasonable person can see that the only feasible threat faced by the West in the foreseeable future is an Islamic one. Yet NATO wants to more deeply embed this Islamic government, of a country with over 80 million people, into its operations. And it’s doing this by way of – as part of Rasmussen’s apology - Turkey getting a newly-created post of deputy secretary general of NATO and the appointment of several Turkish officers inside the alliance's military command.

Can it be a coincidence that Troy, of Trojan Horse fame, was located in what’s now Turkey?

But every cloud has its silver lining. Turkey’s attitude has apparently given some of the EU’s power brokers cold feet. EU enlargement commissioner Olli Rehn is quoted on Finnish state broadcaster YLE "This will surely raise questions amongst EU member states and citizens on how well Turkey has internalised such European values as freedom of expression".

Politicians in the circle of German Chancellor Angela Merkel also attacked Turkey.

"Whoever puts Islamic propaganda above the future of NATO and our European system of values, has nothing to look for in the EU," Alexander Dobrint, the secretary general of Ms Merkel's sister party, the Christian-Social Union, told German press.

What took it so long for that particular penny to drop?

Friday, 10 April 2009

Believe it or not....

This definitely comes under the 'you couldn't make it up' category.

Some schools in the UK are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to "avoid offending Muslim pupils", a Government-backed study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades - where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem - because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

It found some teachers are dropping courses covering the Holocaust at the earliest opportunity over fears Muslim pupils might express anti-Semitic and anti-Israel reactions in class.

So if effect we're back at the pre-Enlightenment stage, where 'truth' was what the prevailing religion said it was. That's what British education has descended to, following the flooding of the country by adherents of the Religion of Peace.

Can you just imagine what it's going to be like in say another ten years, when the Muslim population has doubled?

Difference between Obama and Sarkozy!

So it's true what they say about blacks. I'd say after this Carla will have her eye on Barak.

Interesting question

A commentator to the 'Ethnomasochism' post asks the following very interesting question:

"Dear Savant,

If you think it appropriate, perhaps you would consider posting the following question. Assuming that the readers of this blog are of one mind, what, if anything, is our obligation to extend help to our poor white South African brethren as the noose there gets drawn tighter and tighter? I would really like to know what people think. I, for one, am willing to seriously consider sponsoring the emigration of these poor fucked brethren into the US. What say you and your readers???

Yours, An empathetic American"

Indeed. Don't know what our SA friends would feel about it. I do know that Saffers in Ireland have a very good reputation. Though the way the West is going at the moment maybe not! But at least they'd be able to sleep safely in their beds.

Our 'Government' will funk it

Tomorrow’s Budget is widely seen as make or break for Ireland’s economy. To me, all the signs point to a break, but a deferred one. The budget will put off the evil day, but that day will arrive, and when it does it will be even worse than it would otherwise have been.

The so-called government will take all the easy options. They’ll increase taxes for everyone, but not too much. They’ll postpone vital infrastructure projects (not many votes in them) and borrow every cent they can get their grubby paws on.
The expenditure side, where 90% of the deficit bridging should be sourced, will be largely left intact. Consider just one statistic. At current levels, social welfare uses up over two thirds of government revenues!. This is before you get into public sector pay, or costs for health, education, law enforcement and all the rest of what constitutes ‘normal’ government expenditure. Yet it seems that this will not be touched, even though current deflation means that payments will actually go up in value.

Statistic: If you’re on the dole in Ireland you get almost four times what you get across the border in the UK.
The other monster in the room is the public sector pay bill, which has exploded like a malignant tumour over the last decade. Public sector employees, in their secure jobs, with index-linked pensions, nonetheless earn about 30% more their counterparts in the private sector. Is that madness, or what?
But that’s nothing to what they earn in comparison to foreigners in wealthy countries.

Statistic: An ambulance driver in Dublin earns more than a cardiologist in Germany
Statistic: A professor in Ireland earns twice what his equivalent in the UK earns
Statistic: A policeman in Ireland after 20 years service earns more than twice that of his counterpart in France.
The list is endless. Fact is, our public sector is rewarded at a level vastly in excess of what the economy can afford. Despite this, it has successfully resisted all reform initiatives and remains one of the most hidebound and inefficient in the Western world.

Billions currently being wasted could be saved with the stroke of a pen. Close down all of the Victim Industry quangos – there are hundreds of them. Reduce foreign 'aid' by 90% - everyone will benefit, not least the supposed beneficiaries. And deport every illegal immigrant.
None of these things will happen, leaving the fundamental problem almost untouched. The reason? Politics before principle, party before country.
It wasn’t always thus. Our first President died with holes in his shoes and a couple of hundred pounds in the bank.
But that was then – this is now.

New expression: Ethnomasochism

Thanks to the Mild Colonial Boy for this very interesting piece.

"(It is) the masochistic tendency to regard with a sense of guilt and a sense of worthlessness one’s own ethnic group, one’s own people.

Ethnomasochism is similar to shame of oneself and self-hatred. It is a collective psychopathology, triggered by a long propaganda effort to foster a presumed fundamental sense of guilt felt by Europeans vis-à-vis other peoples, of whom they are assumed to be the “oppressors”. It is therefore necessary to repent and to “pay the debt.” This effort at repentance has been undertaken by the Churches, as well as by the European States.

Ethnomasochism is also the basis of anti-natalistic policies that surreptitiously aim to limit the reproduction of European populations. Implicitly then, it can be likened to a type of “self-racism”. The European man can be said to have been struck down by an original sin, an intrinsic racial stain: he is guilty of being what he is.

Ethnomasochism provokes the systematic defense of cross-breeding and cosmopolitanism. Curiously, it denies to Europeans the idea of ethnic identity, but grants it to others. Europeans are duty-bound to dilute themselves, but other peoples, Africans for example, are not. Ethnomasochism is the counterweight of xenophilia (love and overestimation of the foreigner, the “other”). It is related to ethno-suicide.

In history, ethnomasochism is not new; it was the symptom of peoples tired of life, tired of perpetuating themselves; of aging peoples who pass the torch to others. The European elite are afflicted with this collective illness. And this illness explains the laxness towards the colonization by migrants and the idea that we have both a duty and a need to welcome the new occupiers."

More Zen wisom

In line with my policy of keeping the blog serious, sophisticated and geared towards self-improvement, I occasionally outline some Zen wisdom, as I did here. Given the enlightenment self-evidently achieved by my readers, I have now collected another set of priceless teachings.

Remember, there's nearly 4,000 years of accumulated wisdom underlying these teachings.

1. Sex is like air. It's not that important unless you aren't getting any.

2. Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else.

3. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

4. If you think nobody cares whether you're alive or dead, try missing a couple of mortgage payments.

5. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes..

6. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

7. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

8. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

9. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

10. Some days you are the bug; some days you are the windscreen.

11. Good judgment comes from bad experience ... and most of that comes from bad judgment.

12. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

13. There are two excellent theories for arguing with women. Neither one works.

14. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

15. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

16. We are born naked, wet and hungry, and get slapped on our ass ... then things just keep getting worse.

17. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Pat Buchanan - spot on!

Thanks to Charely Jones for the kind words and for bringing this message from Pat Buchanan to my attention. As usual with Pat, he hits the nail on the head.

"Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America . Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard.

And among them are these:First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Blacks should go down on their knees and thank God they are Americans.

Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ' 60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks -- with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas -- to advance black applicants over white applicants.
Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks.

We hear the grievances. Where is the gratitude??

Barack talks about new 'ladders of opportunity' for blacks. Let him go to Altoona and Johnstown and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for 'deserving ' white kids.

Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America's fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has exceeds 60 percent?Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence.

Is Barack Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3% of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45% percent of the time?Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common since 2001 than white-on-black robberies?

We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on whites are real, we hear nothing. Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion tax dollars ago."

Brilliant, Pat.

On psychosis

Conor Lenihan, Minister For Pretending There’s No Immigration Problem yesterday launched a report (Minorities, Crime, and Justice) from one of the myriad of Immigration Industry quangos.

The report shows that 29% of those currently in custody are non-Irish (needless to say, it's our fault - but you know that). Conor doesn’t mention this statistic, but does go briefly, if inadvertently, off message when he quotes a range of other statistics which include the fact that 12% of the population is non-Irish, as are 20% of the unemployed.

So if you put it all together, non-Irish are twice as likely to be unemployed and three times as likely to be locked up. Remarkably, Lenihen then deduces that ‘immigration can be a great source of societal stability, strength and benefit, not a source of instability’.

This spectacular deduction brings me to psychosis, the subject of this post. Encarta’s definition is “a psychiatric disorder…. that is marked by delusions, hallucinations, incoherence, and distorted perceptions of reality”.

Maybe I’m being unfair to Conor and all the other multi-culti psychotics. But it seems a good match, doesn’t it?

World's 5 best paid politicians

This from today's Time Online.

What a proud moment for Ireland. There's our own Dear Leader, in 4th place. Beating back the challengers from the UK, Germany, Australia, Japan, and of course, leaving lesser lights like Holland and Sweden in his wake.

Brian you do us proud, and you deserve every penny of it, what's more. When the mockers see that they won't be so fast to paint nude pictures of you again.

1. Lee Hsien Loong - Singapore
Salary in dollars - $2.47 million

2. Donald Tsang Yum-Kuen - Hong Kong
Salary in dollars - $516,000

3. Barack Obama - United States
Salary in dollars - $400,000

4. Brian Cowen - Ireland
Salary in dollars - $341,000

5. Nicolas Sarkozy - France

Salary in dollars - $318,000

Scenes from today's media

Scene 1: Taxi drivers go on strike to demand the ending of new licenses ('what we have we hold'). African cultural enrichers feature prominently among the protestors.

Scene 2: Protests at the ongoing and planning cutting of health services. Again, African cultural enrichers feature prominently among the protestors.

Scene 3: Gigantic dole queues snake around street corners as half the country seems to be looking for work.

Conclusion: Unemployed local men will probably find the taxi driver route ruled out while Africans take their jobs and rob the customers in the process.

Conclusion: The counry will have to - somehow - provide medical services to the level and standard to which our African guests have become accustomed.

Like the penguin here I say fuck it - I'm going home.
