Socialism in our future

Karl Marx must be laughing wherever he is. The hardcore master of the universe capitalists at the nation's big banks are not averse to getting large state handouts. Remember the big swinging dicks at Bear Stearns? As soon as the market delivered their much-needed kick in the ass, they were blubbering like babies about being "made whole".

Message to any ex-Bear Stearns bankers: you may have an Ivy League MBA but the according to the market you are just 95% arrogance and 5% talent! Or in other words the market says you're a cunt and who am I to disagree?

Anyway, with Obama looking pretty certain of victory next week, and McCain being just as big a socialist anyway (at least Obama is more honest about it), it seems that the future is more and more big government.

Why do people think that the solution to all problems is to throw taxpayers' money at them? Why do they believe that everything will be great when the government runs everything? Haven't they heard of countries that tried this system? The Soviet Union? North Korea? Britain in the 1970s ring a bell?

Maybe I need to put it in more visual terms. OK, here is what you get, from a government-owned car company (UK, circa 1976). This is a genuine un-photoshopped publicity photo.

Disastrous news for men in the Chicago Suburbs

No that isn't the sound of AK-47 fire.... it's the sound of champagne corks popping!

"I was just administering extreme unction!"

Although I was raised a Catholic, as far as I can see the church is nothing more than a very successful international business which can best be described as the "McDonalds" of Christianity.

Do you think Bishops are appointed for
a) Their spirituality
b) Their effectiveness at fundraising

Answers on a postcard, please. Not!

So here's the tale of a bishop in India who's been suspended for adopting a twenty six year old woman

The money quote: "This relation is giving me spiritual refreshment."

When you get out, there'll always be a job for you here

Driving one of these in Chicago

Truly a match made in heaven

Who could ever have predicted that the marriage of Little Britain star Matt Lucas and Kevin McGee (above) would run into trouble?

I am shocked, shocked, to read of Kevin's Unreasonable Behavior!

Thousands standing around

Like millions of Americans I've suffered under the stupid security theater of the TSA.

Nail clippers are dangerous one minute and ok the next. First you could leave your shoes on now you have to take them off. The whole thing can be summarized as morons protecting the ignorant from the supposed dangers of exploding toothpaste.

I recently read that the TSA were losing badges at an alarming rate and there was concern lest they fall into the wrong hands and be misused.

They shouldn't worry, though, as most travellers would be instantly put on their guard if they came across a TSA worker who wasn't morbidly obese with a room temperature IQ.

Anyway this being a minimum wage government agency, there's no surprise that screeners there are looking for ways to make a bit of money on the side. Like this enterprising fellow:

"One of the victims spotted his gear up for sale on Ebay and alerted another team of investigators working for Homeland Security. When investigators raided Brown's home they found shedloads of electronics gear including 66 cameras, 31 laptop computers, 20 cell phones, 17 electronic games, 13 pieces of jewellery, 12 GPS devices, 11 MP3 players, eight camera lenses, six video cameras and two DVD players. On average Brown was nicking two to three items per week from the airport beginning in September 2007."

And what is the response of the miscreant's managers?

"Officials at the Transportation Security Administration, which employs the airport screeners, said Brown has been placed on administrative leave and will soon be fired."

Hey that'll teach him a lesson!

Who can save America?

An unbeatable combination:

- The looks of Sarah Palin

- The charm of Barack Obama

- The policies of Ron Paul

If there was a candidate like that I'd register to vote for sure

Britain in Trouble

There's a lot of people in the 'real' government of Britain right now who are very worried.

By 'real' government, I mean the people in the Civil Service power elite responsible for implementing European policy.

Britain has about six million unemployed right now - people from families where nobody has worked for three generations. Asylum seekers living in million pound houses at public expense And there are probably a couple of million drug addicts.

No doubt the power elite is wondering what's going to happen if the country goes bankrupt and is unable to pay benefits to those people.

While they think about that, and no doubt make sure they and their families are well protected, they wheel out a pair of boneheaded sock puppets to give a press conference.

These two clowns are sure to fill people with confidence. On the bright side, maybe we will yet get to see them dragged out of their armored limos and strung up by an angry mob!
