More educational advances

Many of you were impressed by my post on the progressive teaching of maths in California (see here). You'll be pleased to know that classical childrens' reading material has also been updated to reflect the most advanced pedagogical thinking.

A few samples:

Eurabian Safari

Thomas Landen in the Brussels Journal provides us with a frightening insight into the colonisation of Europe by Muslims:
It is hot in Brussels. Ramadan has begun. The faithful in the predominantly Muslim borough of Molenbeek are not allowed to eat or drink from sunrise until sunset. Non-Muslim policemen, patrolling the streets of Molenbeek in their sweltering cars, are not allowed to eat or drink either.
As every year during Ramadan, they have been told by their superior, Philippe Moureaux, the Socialist mayor of Molenbeek, that they have to respect Muslim sensitivities and not to “provoke” Muslims by violating Islamic Ramadan restrictions in public. In effect, Islamic or Sharia law is already applied – for everyone – in the Muslim areas of Brussels.
Barely two miles from Molenbeek lies Brussels’ European district. One of its huge glass and concrete buildings is the European Parliament where the elected representatives from the 27 members states of the European Union (EU) convene. Most of the 736 MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) never go to that part of the city. It is probably a sensible decision, because the Muslim neighborhoods are known to be unsafe for non-Muslims.
A walking tour of Molenbeek should be compulsory for every MEP. Some friends in Brussels organize one-hour trips through Molenbeek. They go in an inconspicuous car, driven by a local who knows the escape routes, and with a bodyguard. Otherwise the risk would be too great.
These trips are called “safaris.” Similar “Eurabia safaris” are organized in other European cities. One of the highlights – though absolutely not the most dangerous one – of the safari in Rosengaard, the Muslim section of the Swedish city of Malmö, is a short stop, to give the visitor the opportunity to take a quick snapshot, in front of Malmö’s “Jihadskörkortsteori” (Jihad Driving School).
I'd like to highlight this: "Sharia law is already applied – for everyone – in the Muslim areas of Brussels."

That's the point. For everyone. This is how the colonisation is happening. House by house, street by street, block by block - locals and non-Muslims are forced out and exclusive colonies continually expand. And given the demographics, this growth will increase exponentially. What's going to happen say in another ten years of this growth? A civil war, or will we just capitulate like good dhimmis? I think the latter, quite honestly.
We should not be at all surprised by these developments. Almost 30 years ago (see my post here) Islamic Council of Europe advised "Do not integrate. Rather, concentrate Muslim presence in a particular area until you are a majority in that area, so that the institutions of the local community come to reflect Islamic structures. The education system will be Islamic, the shops will serve only halal food, there will be no advertisements showing naked or semi-naked women and so on”

Kinda rings a bell, doesn't it? I bet the policemen in Molenbeek can relate to that.
Or heard of this from President Boumedienne of Algeria in 1974 ‘Soon we shall irrupt into the Northern hemisphere. And not as friends. We shall conquer by populating your territory with our children. The wombs of our women will give us victory’.
You've all heard the old Chinese saying 'may you live in interesting times'. Bear in mind that this was meant as a curse. That curse has been visited on us and on our children.

Horror in the lift

There's an advertising campaign running on Irish TV at the moment warning of the dangers from swine flu. It’s set in a lift (elevator) and it opens with a heart-warming scene. An elderly black couple holding hands. Nothing odd about this as we know that blacks bond monogamously for life, just like swans. Although I suppose it is a bit odd in that in Ireland you won't see any elderly blacks, at least for another twenty years or so. So why use them? Well, bear with me.

The lift stops at the next floor and, right on cue, a mixed race child enters, and rushes to the embrace of her loving grandparents. Honestly, I was so touched I had to wipe a tear from my eye. And I don’t know why, because we all know that this is standard fare for a black family - close, loving, monogamous, united in multi-generational harmony.

But wait! Strike a sombre chord and an ominous rolling of drums.

Unknown to us up to now, the lift also harbours a deadly threat. A white male. And like all while males he brings trouble. This one carries a deadly disease, spread by sneezing and hand contact. And like all white males, this one is selfish and inconsiderate. He sneezes, and doesn’t bother to use a tissue. And in doing so he’s shown to infect his fellow passengers, who, being a black multi-generational family, are still clasped in a loving embrace, thereby unwittingly passing on the white male’s germs to one another.

Aren't white males right bastards?

PS: Thanks to Derek for giving us the link to the ad now on YouTube

It's called 'Catch it, bin it, kill it'. That's what I'd like to do to the 'creative' genius who came up with this piece of crap. Note also how with hundreds of comments, not one that I've seen refers to the blatant social programming that's going on. Seems the sheeple are well under control.

God and Mammon

If it wasn’t bad enough bringing in a new blasphemy law, our esteemed Minister for Justice has now seen fit to introduce legislation which allows Mass cards to be sold only ‘by virtue of an arrangement with a recognised person, meaning a bishop or provincial of the Catholic Church’.

Just what we need I say. Can't have bogus Mass Cards in circulation, can we? The end of civilization as we know it.

And one Thomas McNally is so put out about it that he’s appealing the Act’s constitutionality in the High Court. Thomas, according to today’s Irish Times (print edition) runs a successful Mass Card production company in Longford (despite the market being ‘highly competitive’!) and could be out of business with the new law.

According to the Times, he has ‘an arrangement with several priests whereby they agreed to permit him to affix their signature to the cards in return for a personal stipend’. What could be fairer than that? And Tom goes further. He also has arrangement with ‘Most Reverend William Kikoti, bishop of Mapanda, Tanzania’. How about that!
But look at it from God’s perspective. How is He supposed to know who bought what, and what they’re praying for? You only get the benefit from the card on the basis of the priest offering up a Mass for your intentions. But how does he get to know your intentions, and in turn, how is God supposed to know, if the priest doesn’t, and if… well, you can see His problem.

Ok, as our Muslim friends keep telling, ‘God is great’. And I agree. I agree. Put that dagger away please. But really, is He that great, that he can work out all this kind of stuff?

I don't know. But I think we should be told. It's our money after all.

Silly Seb

British novelist Sebastian Faulks has risked incurring the wrath of Muslims by dismissing the Koran as just 'the depressive rantings of a schizophrenic' with 'no ethical dimension'. It says ‘the Jews and the Christians were along the right tracks, but actually, they were wrong and I’m right, and if you don’t believe me, tough — you’ll burn for ever'. That’s basically the message of the book.'
Couldn't have put it better myself, Seb.

I'm not just taking a cheap shot here, but I always felt that Mo demonstrated classical schizophrenia, voices in the head and all that. But the difference is that Mo also had his feet firmly on the ground – when they weren’t on somebody else’s head. Like when he got horny for six year-old Aisha the voices, opportunely, told him he must marry her. Or the voices telling him to rob, pillage, rape and all that other good stuff we associate with the Religion of Peace.

The response came right on cue. Ajmal Masroor, an imam and spokesman for the Islamic Society of Britain said Faulk's statements ran the risk of stirring religious hatred against Muslims. 'People don't seem to understand the consequences of saying things like this could be quite severe.’
Oh we do understand that, Ajmal. And so would Theo van Gogh, were he still alive. And Salman Rushdie I'm sure could tell us loads about it. Was Faulks crazy? Where did he think he was – in a Western democracy where people are free to speak their minds?

The usual sequence here is first the ‘offence’, second the furious response from the Religion of Peace, then a groveling retraction from the perpetrator. And sure enough, Faulks delivered on cue. In yesterday’s Guardian he whined:

"It is absurd to suggest that the Prophet [note: no longer the schizophrenic], who achieved so much in military and political – quite apart from religious – terms, [and don’t forget his achievement in wiping out a whole Jewish tribe] can have suffered from any acute illness. Only a fully cogent and healthy person could have done what he did". He went on to offer "a simple but unqualified apology to my Muslim friends and readers for anything that has come out sounding crude or intolerant. Happily, there is more to the book than that."

Well, let’s not be too hard on him - he probably had van Gogh in mind when he retracted. And I'd do the same I have to say were I in his position.
So what to make of this development? It’s good in that someone in the public eye has called out the nature of the Religion Of Peace. But doesn’t it also show how in reality we’ve surrendered?
On balance I'd award this one to the Religion Of Peace on points.

South Africa gets tough on crime - at last

In the pantheon of 20th century horrors, the Sharpeville Massacre is right up there with the Holocaust and the Armenian Massacre. In fact, according to the former Liberian President Charles Tubman it was even worse. In his considered judgment, Sharpeville was, quote "the vilest, most reckless and unconscionable action in history."


Which is a bit surprising (see my post on it here) in that the numbers shot dead by the South African police, in what was an unplanned but nonetheless reckless action, amounted to 69 (pardon the pornographic associations). The police wouldn’t do that sort of thing today in the Rainbow Nation of course.

Or would they?

In fact according to figures issued by Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) and quoted in the SA Sucks blog no fewer than 420 people were shot dead by police in the previous year. I kid you not!

Here’s what the report says: “At least 191 suspects were shot during an arrest, 83 shot while allegedly committing a crime, 43 during investigations, 34 while escaping, six due to negligence, while three victims were bystanders. The figure also included 60 people shot in domestic violence incidents or by off-duty policemen.”

But you’ve already heard about this, haven’t you? Seen all the mass demonstrations protesting the slaughter? No? Strangely enough, neither have I. Amazing, isn't it, when you consider that this is exactly six times the number killed at Sharpeville?

I wonder why? Now I'm making just a wild guess here, but could it be that the cops today are nearly all black?

Naw, couldn’t be – I'm just cynical.

Totalitarianism in Finland

In a post some time back I made the point that, far from being opposites, political correctness is similar to Communism in that both of them are totalitarian ideologies that will not countenance dissent. You know the line 'no freedom for error'.

One of the ways the ordinary public got a whiff of the real situation under Communist regimes was to develop a kind of taxonomy for translating NewSpeak into the truth. So for example, if Pravda published a headline which said 'Comrade Breshnev has slight cold' they knew that he had one foot in the grave.

Now we have a valuable reader, who goes under the alias of zngr (presumably to protect his physical safety and livelihood) and who provides us with ongoing updates of how Finland, like the rest of Europe, is being destroyed by mass immigration . The interesting thing about the excerpt below is the way the NewSpeak of the PC MSM in Finland is being 'subverted' by sarcastic letter writers, in a way that's so similar to the mechanisms deployed under Communism.

Over to zngr for an example of how such a subversive manages to get published in the MSM:

"We must empower and cherish our diverse minorities or we can never call Finland truly international. A multicultural society is the only way we can achieve global success! Finnish teachers are simply unable to face their multicultural students. We must re-educate all our teachers to face multiculturalism correctly by sending them to re-education camps. Every immigrant saves the taxpayer 300 000€! We need more immigrants, especially from East-Africa so we can call Finland a truly multicultural and diverse society! Multiculturalism is ENRICHING!!!"

As he points out (in a comment to this post) most Finns now get the idea and find it amusing. But isn't it the sign of totalitarian intolerance that they have to do this?

California: The Sheriff speaks

This from Lee Baca who has been sheriff of Los Angeles County since 1998.
"As a Latino raised in East Los Angeles [probably the worst part, home of the delectable Williams sisters] I have seen many sides of the race issue. I have lived it, in fact.
Some people deny that race is a factor in L.A.'s gang crisis. The truth is that, in many cases, race is at the heart of the problem. Latino gang members shoot blacks not because they're members of a rival gang but because of their skin color. Likewise, black gang members shoot Latinos because they are brown.
Furthermore, we have evidence linking inmates who are known as "shot callers" directly to street shootings based entirely on race. The shot caller will often order the gunman to find someone -- anyone -- who is black or brown and shoot them instead. Gang affiliation does not matter. Only the color of the victim's skin matters.
I would even take this a step further and suggest that some of L.A.'s so-called gangs are really no more than loose-knit bands of blacks or Latinos roaming the streets looking for people of the other color to shoot. Race-based violence has even found its way into our school system. Recently, fighting broke out between more than 600 black and brown students at Locke High School in South L.A.
The racial divide is being driven by the ongoing population growth and demographic changes that have buffeted L.A. for decades. " Indeed, Sheriff, indeed. One thing that interests me is that whites aren't mentioned. Presumable they're at the receiving end from both sides.
He concludes with what appear to him hopeful, but to me hopeless programs to address the issue. Point is, and this also goes for Europe as we flood the continent with incompatible races and religions, the problem should never have been allowed to develop as it did. It could and should have been killed at birth. But the damage is done, and now it sweeps on to the rest of unoccupied USA and Europe.

“California tumbles into the sea”

“California tumbles into the sea” But when Steely Dan sang this back in the seventies they had an earthquake along the San Andreas Fault in mind, not the kind of slow destruction that now stalks the Golden State, which is, how can I put this, fucked.
My first visit there was in 1978 and it lived up to all my preconceptions. Golden beaches, golden girls, fabulous wealth, glamour, cleanliness, and friendly helpful people (like the rest of the US). It lead the world in so many arenas, not just technology and movies. From what I can remember it was 100% white. Of course it wasn't, but I can't remember being aware of any non-whites.
From Gidget to Blade Runner

Roll forward thirty years and what you get is straight out of Blade Runner. A dystopian nightmare of violent gangs taking over whole areas of some cities – LA being a good and huge example – while Fresno has degenerated into a meths sinkhole and San Diego’s become an extension of Mexico.
In fact whole regions of Southern California now look and sound like Mexico. Latinos everywhere, Spanish the prevailing language, while garbage litters the streets. Squads of seemingly feral children swarm all over the place, the cars are rattle-traps, while begging and panhandling are rife.
One writer described it thus: “My neighbourhood has turned into a barrio, with bars on doors and windows, abandoned shopping carts, old sofas and junky cars strewn everywhere, graffiti, rude, surly people, chickens in yards, Mexican music blasting all night, ridiculously long waits in emergency rooms full of illegals, overcrowded, dangerous and ineffective schools, auto accidents caused by unlicensed, uninsured illegals, and on and on.”

A recent BBC production on the gangs of LA underlined a common thread. Vicious gangs murder and pillage whole neighbourhoods; gang members are virtually 100% black or Hispanic, while the emergency services (medical, ambulance, fire) are almost all white. This is how mixed societies operate, as we’ve seen time and again.

Whites are voting - with their feet

But the whites are getting fed up of it all, and are leaving the state in droves. Not just fed up with violence and general degradation, but also picking up the tab for the perpetrators. The mass Latino influx is largely low-skilled, low IQ – and strong in the reproduction stakes. This means that a rapidly declining white proportion of the population is being taxed out of existence to pay for these high-dependency Latinos and blacks.
They’re rightly fed up with it, and those remaining have used the referendum structure to limit what the state legislature can extract in taxes – funds which the ‘legislators’ then channel back to their own supporters. (The Democrats control the legislature and the Mexicans control the Dems – that's how/why it happens like this).
All this of course makes the state virtually ungovernable. The ‘legislators’ need vast funds for their welfare programs, and the providers of these funds (the whites), already paying the highest taxes in the US, are refusing to divvy up any more. Net result, the state is a short step away from bankruptcy and is already, like some African tinpot dictatorship, paying its debts with IOUs. The state’s credit rating is already shaky, and any further downgrades from rating agencies could send interest rates on its bonds soaring, forcing deeper service cuts and/or widening the deficit further.
California’s magnificent State Parks are being closed (48 at the latest count), thousands of prisoners are being let loose on the citizenry, while schools are closing gyms and labs. But the State continues to allocate increasing funds every year for English learners. Even last year, as the budget went into a tailspin, the State proposed an additional $5 billion for additional training for non-English speakers.

But that's not the best of it. In the middle of this meltdown the crooks – there’s no other word for it - in Sacramento are now proposing to extend free health cover to all illegals! Can you just imagine the impact of that? There wouldn’t be a sick child left in Mexico. Now it would be wonderful if there wasn't a sick child in Mexico. But transferring them all to California won't solve the problem. It’ll just bring the end on sooner.

California invites - and becomes - the Third World

The state’s population also continues to skyrocket at an unsustainable rate. In 1950 it was 10.6 million. If state growth had mirrored the national rate, that is, doubling from 1950 to 2000 (i.e. from 150 million to 300 million), then California at the end of the 20th century would have numbered a little over 21 million. Instead it has almost 40 million now. This has had a disastrous impact on all infrastructure and facilities (e.g. schools and hospitals) but more alarmingly, threatens the state’s ongoing supply of water.
The Sacramento Bee is a broadly liberal newspaper and Daniel Weintraub one of its most respected columnists. He has said that illegal immigration "…sits just below the surface of almost every major issue in California, from education to health care and the state's deteriorated infrastructure."

And that was back in 2003!

Working on figures from a National Research Council report, Edward Rubenstein calculated that nearly one-quarter (24.5%) of California’s current $38 billion state budget deficit stems directly from immigration. This figure was largely substantiated in another study.

And the Silicon Valley ‘miracle’ is now a mirage. Or at least it is for American workers. Indians and Chinese have shown a strong inclination to employ their own, this preference probably driven by natural clannishness (you know, that crime not permissible for whites?), acceptance of lower pay and their being easier to control. In any event over half of the high-tech startups there are run by foreigners.
These developments have been driven by reality- challenged ‘progressive’ academics and politicians, and probably even more so by an executive class looking for cheap labour. How ironic is it therefore that Chief Executive magazine has ranked California “the very worst state to do business in for each of the past four years", while Business Week called California a "basket case."

That flapping noise in the background is the sound of chickens coming home to roost. Except of course that won't bother the wealthy in their gated communities (with Mexican gardeners) or the tenured academics secure in their ivory towers.

Next up.... the US of A.

Now the demise of the Golden State is in itself a major tragedy. But the main point of this post is that this demise foretells what’s going to happen to the rest of the country in due course. California is at the front line and as such is the first to fall. All of the pathologies that afflict California, driven by mass Third World immigration, are spreading to the rest of the USA.
Once California goes under and can no longer afford its welfare programmes, the immigrants will move on to greener pastures. It’s already happening as far north as Washington State (i.e. the Canadian border) Already we know that whites will be a minority throughout the country by the middle of this century. If the majority is black/Hispanic, is there any reason whatsoever why the USA shouldn’t be a country similar to what, say, Brazil is today?

I'd love to hear some evidence that I'm wrong. But I'm not holding my breath.

The Hartes need a heart-to-heart

Meet the Harte family, Ger, Danielle, and their five children. They seem to be doing all right. They live in a seven-bedroomed detached house, have two cars, 4 televisions including a 50" flat-screen, and of course the obligatory Sky Sports subscription. In the photo in the Sunday Independent seven of the family are sporting Celtic (I'll have to give them a plus for that) and one what appears to be Aston Villa expensive replica tops.
And they are in receipt of €3,800 (about $5,500) a month from the Irish taxpayer to help them along

But all is not well. The Hartes believe they’re getting a raw deal from the taxpayer, and took their grievance to the courts. They were somewhat surprised – and upset – at the subsequent lack of sympathy when the media got hold of their story.

One of the people a bit put out was an IT salesman who earned €32,000 a year, from which he had to pay transport costs for a two-hour commute to work, mortgage payments and doctors bills – all of which costs would be covered for the Hartes. He made the valid point that he was working his ass off and coming out with less than the Hartes.

Why bother?’ he asks.

Why indeed? And therein lies a large part of Ireland’s problems, and why our social welfare payments will be about €20 billion this year. And that's for a population of four million! 40% of the population at any one time is in receipt of welfare payments such as those trousered by the Hartes.
And we wonder why we have a financial crisis. It's not only the bankers and developers who have brought this on us. The insane welfare expenditure instanced by the the examples I gave above show how the blame can be spread around. Ultimately of course the fault is that of the politicians who countenanced all of this, and the sheeple who elected them.

No, not darkest Africa

It’s a scene straight out of darkest Africa. Food being delivered by white volunteers to helpless hungry blacks. But they’re not so helpless that they couldn’t over-run the convoy and steal the food. (For example in Haiti, gangs did just this – and then SOLD the food back to the starving populace). But not here. Here there are armed guards to guard against, well, the victims. Over to Steve Hargreaves of CNN:

“On a side street in an old industrial neighborhood, a delivery man stacks a dolly of goods outside a store. Ten feet away stands another man clad in military fatigues, combat boots and what appears to be a flak jacket. He looks straight out of Baghdad. But this isn't Iraq. It's southeast Detroit, and he's there to guard the groceries. "No pictures, put the camera down," he yells.”

Ah yes. But should we be surprised when Africans bring Africa to the West? Read about how they did it in New Orleans here. Or did you read the murder statistics for Detroit I provided here? In case you didn’t I showed that Detroit city and suburbs have similar population sizes. The core city is almost all black, the suburbs almost all white. The city had 394 murders in 2007, the suburbs 23.

Yes indeed.

Now CNN, needless to say, don’t introduce any awkward facts like this into its report, just standard PC doublespeak. For exmple they bemoan the fact that none of the major retailers has a branch in the city, implicitly accusing them of racism. Memo to CNN: Retailers will go anywhere that they can make money. They can't make money in Detroit city because of massive levels of inventory theft by employees, shoplifting, ram-raids and public liability claims.

It’s as simple as that.

As I've said repeatedly, PC Thought Police are doing their intended beneficiaries no favours by propagating lies like this. Because if you don't understand the real problem, almost by definition you won't solve it. Additionally, by drumming it into the ‘victims’ that nothing is their fault they’re undermining any incentive for them to solve their own problems.

So the dance macabre goes on, soon to visit Ireland.

Socratic wisdom

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his Wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said,

"Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Test of Three."


"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to test what you're going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you Are About to tell me is true?"

"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know If it's true or not. Now let's try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something Good?"

"No, on the contrary...."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something Bad about him even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued. "You may still pass though, because there is a Third test - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really...."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is Neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"

The man was defeated and ashamed. This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.

It also explains why he never found out that Plato was banging his wife.

Also reminds me of the magnificent Dorothy Parker

"If you have nothing good to say about anyone.............. come over and talk to me"

BaNAMA Republic

Enough has been written by others about governments’ bailout of bankers and speculators - the very people who caused the problem. Ironic that this is most pronounced in the Anglosphere, the alleged home of the bold capitalist risk-taker.

In Ireland’s case we have the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA), which proposes to buy all the banks’ ‘toxic assets’. And what will they pay for those assets (liabilities is the correct term) which are now worth about a quarter of their loan value? Well, the geniuses will pay, on the Irish taxpayers’ behalf, the value ‘that the assets could be expected to achieve in the medium term or when normal market conditions prevail’.
Now isn't that a lovely, clear, definitive statement of how much we’re being exposed to? NOT! Based on the legislation, everyone agrees that we have in effect no idea as to the extent of our ultimate exposure. At book values of €95 billion, we can see that a tiny country like Ireland is potentially facing a meltdown of Icelandic dimensions if it all goes wrong. Which it most likely will.

Just like in the US, it’s not as if the government has to do this. There is a very simple solution: let the shareholders and international bondholders - who invested unwisely because they were getting a great return on their investment – let them take the hit. After all, isn't that what the go-go risk-taking capitalist culture is all about?

Apparently not.

What intrigues me is why the government would incur such public odium, and inflict such devastation on its own people, rather than take this path. I don't believe it’s corruption in the commonly understood meaning of the term. Rather, again just like the US, the government has turned to the very people who walked us into the disaster to come up with the ‘solution’. Naturally this solution is one geared to support their interests, not the public’s. And the government is too incompetent and cowed to counter them. As I've pointed out on many an occasion, the sheer incompetence of Ireland’s politicians is nothing short of breathtaking.

And then we have the resident parasites circling like vultures, applying their own pressures as another feeding frenzy beckons. Lawyers will have a feild day (many field days) as every price offered by NAMA is appealed to every court in the land (all paid for by the taxpayer) while property valuers, consultants and middlemen of all sorts firmly insert all four feet in the trough.

The ostensible reason offered for taking the NAMA approach is that otherwise the international bondholders would take a dim view and our reputation would be damaged. First, our reputation is damaged quite enough as it is. And second, sentiment is an emotion unknown to international lenders. They’ll lend if they think they’ll get a good return and the risk is low. And as we’ve seen, there’s in effect no risk to lending to Irish banks. This being so the bondholders will continue to allow banks to throw money around like drunken sailors if they believe they’ll get their money back come what may.

But if we sold off the assets at current values, the resultant losses for the bondholders would encourage them to exercise caution in future before they pile into reckless gambling of the kind that brought Ireland down. Also we’d instantly cleanse our banking system (is that isn't an oxymoron) and use the billions slated to bail out the investors to instead recapitalise the banks.

Should be a no-brainer but it looks like we’re not going to do it. Ireland could be facing up to a Lost Generation.

Ireland's saviour - technology entrepreneurship

Ireland’s economy is going to hell in a handcart as you all know. Our one chance is to rekindle the spirit of the nineties and become an innovative, entrepreneurial, technology-driven powerhouse. We really were all of those things. Seems so long ago.

It’s with great joy therefore that I learned of the following initiative. As a former technology entrepreneur and mentor to a range of technology companies, I can tell a winner when I see one.
The ingenious scheme from Bock the Robber is to… well, I’ll hand you over to the innovator himself.

"Pray Per Click.

The concept is very simple. I’ve set up twin Pray supercomputers in Antarctica, each having three christabytes of main memory and quadruple 98-halohertz praycessors.

For a small donation (let’s say 50 cents), using PrayPal, you can generate a random prayer and have it emailed to an unlimited number of devotional web-grottoes, which I will also set up. You can send it to virtual Lourdes, Medugorje on line, cyber-Fatima or any Knock of your choice
So how will all this work?
Very simple. I’ll be putting a button on the front page that you can click, and using your PrayPal account you can donate 50 cents or a euro. Or a dollar. Or a dinar. Or an e-shekel. I don’t mind.

Then you select a prayer-theme from a simple pop-up menu.
Once you’ve donated to our church-building fund and selected the theme, our two Pray supercooled supercomputers will generate a random and unique prayer which will be broadcast to space in all known languages as well as Java and Cobol, and emailed to the recipient of your choice.
What could be simpler?Here’s my advice to you. Pray early, pray often "
More comprehensive details of the project can be acquired here.

Now of course, as with all technological breakthroughs, some traditional trades will suffer. Obviously the humble Mass Card, a great little earner for centuries, will be severely impacted. As will the coffers of the not-so-humble Church. But that’s progress guys – don't be Luddites now!

The other side of racial profiling

You know by now that the way race is depicted in the media (see this post, for example) pisses me off. Blacks are invariably cast as judges, honest policemen, doctors, lawyers, scientists etc. All wholly at variance with reality.

Now we see the opposite side of this fantasy. See the cartoon here from Daryl Cagle, which purports to depicts the massive overcrowding in US prisons? Notice anything? Of course you do. All of the prisoners are white. No sign of our precious diversity here.

But, you may protest, maybe all US prisoners are white? Well, check this, from the Bureau of Justice Statistics
"Among inmates held in custody in prisons or jails, black males were incarcerated at 6.6 times the rate of white males. One in 21 black males was incarcerated at midyear 2008, compared to one in 138 white males. At midyear 2008, black males (846,000) outnumbered white males (712,500) and Hispanic males (427,000) among inmates in prisons and jails."

According to my rough mental calculation, based on these figures, approximately one prisoner in three is white. Yet in the cartoon they're all white. Just shows the relentless brainwashing attack comes at us from both directions.
Also, have you ever noticed the ads for home security? You'll never see a black identified as a potential intruder - even in South Africa I'm told! There blacks commit almost 100% of burglaries, and even in the US (according to the same DoJ source above) blacks housebreak at about 15 the rate of whites.
I tell you, you wouldn't get this kind of MSM mental programming under Stalin. And remember what that arch-propagandist Goebbels said 'if you keep repeating a lie often enough, it will eventually be accepted as fact'.

Democratic bloodbaths?

Thanks to teacher-paris for this. It's an interesting take but I have major problems with a lot of it.

"Let me come back to the link between the American Civil War and World War I. Both wars were fought in defense of egalitarian democracy, and in both wars white European males were killed in larger percentages and numbers than in any previous war between Europeans.

Did this end the European American’s and the European’s love affair with egalitarian democracy? No, it did not. The carnage of those two wars, fought in the name of democracy, only intensified the Europeans’ love for democracy.

Why? Because having lost his faith in Christianity, the European had to cling to his new-found faith no matter what the cost in human lives. “Better that millions perish than I should give up my faith in egalitarian democracy,” became the implicit credo of the post-Christian European. It was inevitable that the black man would become the god of the democracy-loving Europeans, because the satanic logic of the democratic heresy says that if a black man can attain equality with the European, the new faith works.

We can all dance around the bonfire of Western culture and sing praises to the new faith. The Obama coronation in this country was a religious ceremony in which liberals throughout America and Europe saw their god in the flesh. Of course, it could have been any black man who was crowned, because the liberals’ faith celebrates the generic over the individual.

Remember when Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger, said that the next pope should be a black man? He did not mention a particular black man, he just wanted a black man, any black man. Egalitarian democracy, like communism, is an impossibility. A hierarchical structure exists in every society, even if that society denies its existence.

And post-Christian Europeans have retained the elements of a Christian society in a bastardized, demonic form. For instance, original sin still exists, but it resides only in white males. And their original sin was that they did not admit blacks into full equality with whites. Hence, it is necessary that white males perform their mea culpas on a daily basis and take their punishment in a humble and contrite manner.

Likewise, the liberals still believe in saints. However, sainthood does not come as a result of an individual person cooperating with God’s grace; sainthood is conferred on every member of the black race and by proxy to those members of the white race who support the sainted black race.The halfway-house Christians tell us that egalitarian, black-worshipping democracy stems from the Christian belief that all men are created and loved by God. But why, if egalitarian democracy follows from Christianity, didn’t the Europeans, when they were Christian, practice egalitarian democracy?

No unbiased, sane human being could claim our current aborting, porno-crazed society is superior to the older European societies. Wouldn’t it be more accurate to say that a Christian people segregates in order to protect their own from contamination, and they make distinctions between peoples in order to ensure that truth has a protected hearth in which to dwell?

When the white race ceased to segregate and when they allowed truth to be trampled by barbarian hordes, they ceased to be Christian.The “Lost Battalion” is the European people who have forsaken Christian Europe for egalitarian, black-worshipping democracy. And every single European who adheres to the egalitarian creed will suffer the same fate as Major Charles Whittlesey [The leader of the 'Lost Battalion' in WW 1].

When the battle is not fought in the name of the God who’s love passeth all understanding, the battle and life itself seem futile. Does the struggle availeth, is the race worth running? It is, but only if He awards the laurel wreath."

Well, the writer makes a number of strange claims:

WW 1 fought for 'egalitarian democracy'? really? I'd have said that raw nationalism, fanned by stupid leaders who didn't realise the ramifications of what they were doing, was the main cause. The ostensible cause was 'the defence of small nations'. Which, as we all know, was horseshit

"Why, if egalitarian democracy follows from Christianity, didn’t the Europeans, when they were Christian, practice egalitarian democracy?". Well, this is a circular argument in that it assumes that Europe was Christian before egalitarian democracy took over. Was it? The ethos of Christianity was surely egalitarian "all men created equally in God's eyes" and the idea (the only practical one), of separating the races runs counter to everything Jesus said and did. Good Samaritan, Mary Magdalen etc. I take the polar opposite view to the writer here. To me, if you follow the word of Jesus you get kinda stuck with lousy neighbours and you gotta treat the black man as your brudda. One of the reasons why I have a problem with it.

More joys of diversity

Sky News brings us tidings that will gladden the hearts of all Frenchmen, and set them off once more extolling the joys of diversity. Really. The French just looooove all those Africans and Muslims in their midst.

The report says, inter alia:

"Doctors in Paris found a 62-year-old female patient was suffering from a form of the virus that had not been seen before. It was different from the three previous known HIV strains - which are all related to the simian virus that occurs in chimpanzees.

The woman tested positive for HIV in 2004, shortly after moving to Paris from her native Cameroon. She had lived near Yaounde, the country's capital, and said she had no contact with apes or bush meat, a name often given to meat from wild animals in tropical countries.

The most likely explanation for the new find is gorilla-to-human transmission, researchers found."

This is a polite way of saying that she, or one of her numerous partners, either had sexual congress with a gorilla or else consumed gorilla meat.

"The doctors wrote that the finding "highlights the continuing need to watch closely for the emergence for new HIV variants, particularly in western central Africa".

Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense not to allow any West Africans into our countries unless they’ve been cleared of AIDS, TB and some other of their exotic contributions? In fact, wouldn’t it make even more sense if we didn’t allow them in at all except in special circumstances, such as the earth spinning off its axis?

"I remember Dublin city....."

Ah yes. ‘I remember Dublin city in the rare old times’. Mind you, there was an awful lot wrong with the rare old times. The city was threadbare, the Church had its docile population in its vice-like grip. But a murder there was sensational news back then, not a weekly occurrence like today.

Anyway, thanks to teacher-paris for the following video clips. Please review these short videos. The first one gives us some indication of the current population mix, which, by the way, is becoming more ‘diverse’ every day.

Then take in the second clip. This report, undertaken and presented by a black news team (I’ll say it again, much of the most honest reporting on race comes from blacks) shows that gang rape, and rape generally, is largely a black phenomenon in the UK. As of course is knife crime.

Then, if you can stomach it, check out this link. It concerns a totally unprovoked attack on a white family, walking home after a fireworks display, by up to 50 black youths in Akron Ohio. The police, you’ll note, are not classing it as a ‘racial hate crime’. Of course not. After all, the victims were white and the perpetrators black, so, ergo, no racial hate involved.

Teacher-paris also supplies some murder statistics from Detroit. The population of that city is split fairly evenly (about a million each) between the suburbs and the city proper. The latter is 89% black, the former over 90% white. And the statistics? For 2007 there were 394 murders in the city and, wait for it, all of 23 in the suburbs.

Finally, could you give me some reassurance. I need it. Is there any reason you can think of – any reason – why Dublin in due course should not go the way of these various ‘diverse’ cities?
