Theresa May Gets It Right

Far right racist bigot who…wait for it…doesn’t live in Britain.  Yup, the hypocrite is a migrant himself!  
For decades Britain has been accepting refugees from war-torn countries, and after the statutory five years has given them permanent residency in the U.K. complete with a passport. No matter that the troubles in their homeland are over, and their country has returned to peace. They are still allowed to stay as permanent British citizens in […]

“German Muslim: “Islam Is Coming and Your Daughters Will Wear the Hijab””

Lol…too funny!  Their sons will wear BEARDS!  

[Translated] “Islam is coming to take over Germany whether you want it or not…not through war but by the fact that Germans don’t reproduce and Muslims have 7-8 children each…but not only that, your daughters will marry bearded Muslims and wear the hijab, their sons will wear a beard!

What America Will Look Like Within a Few Years—6 Events That Will Happen…

When paranoia comes to America.  Read this, folks, and weep for the lack of education in America.
By Lisa Haven “A government which will turn its tanks upon its people, for any reason, is a government with a taste of blood and a thirst for power and must either be smartly rebuked, or blindly obeyed in deadly fear.” – John Salter Our government is doing just that! They are turning their back […]

Has this week’s school shooting happened in America yet?

The reason I ask is not because I have joined the ultra-violent hyper-stupid American gun lobby in enjoying hearing about violence on the news, but because of this:
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/oct/22/pupils-wounded-in-sword-attack-at-swedish-school
An attack in Sweden has killed one person.  But that’s not what I want to point out to you: it’s the fact that is near the end of the article.
This is the first successful school attack in Seeden in over 50 years.
That’s what happens when you live in a country that enjoys gun control.

More Illegals From the Middle East? Really?

Read, and weep for America, where they have such inhuman people as the writer of this…Hey, Mister “President” (and I use that term VERY loosely!) When in the hell are we going to start taking care of AMERICAN “refugees” that were BORN here??? Asshole…

Migrants – And The Shape Of Things To Come!

(Read this folks, with the thought in your head that the far-right idiot who wrote it is a Brit who lives in Spain.  Yup, he’s a hated migrant himself.  You couldn’t make this shit up. )

It was no surprise to me to read today that a cleaning woman at a refugee camp has been sexually harassed by two Muslim inmates. The cleaner was assaulted every day for ten days before she had the nerve to report the abuse. Two refugees, one aged 38 and another of 52, have been arrested at the […]

Excuses, and why America is doomed to see further bloodshed

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/aug/26/gun-control-political-refusal-to-address-politics-of-gun-violence

Before I start writing this, I’d like to mention that I am sitting in a “gun-free zone”, my city centre library.  Gun yahoos claim that a leading cause of gun homicides is not the presence of a gun, but the presence of a “gun-free zone”.  I assert that that is bunkum, but we shall see.

I got home from work last night and logged on to the news.  There was news from America of a shooting, but, in a country that averages roughly one shooting per hour, this one was pretty noteworthy.  A news reporter and a camera man had been shot dead – pretty much on live television.

And, as usual, I went to Facebook to see what the gun yahoos were saying.  And as usual they were saying pretty much the same as they were in December 2012, when more than two dozen people were massacred in Connecticut.  They were trotting out every excuse under the sun.  ne person wrote the shooting off as a “normal” piece of “workplace drama”.  Well, my boss will testify to the fact that I personally ignite about three workplace dramas a day.  And so far, no one has been shot.  Could this happy result be due to the absence of a gun?  And another person said that all of America’s shootings occurred because of the “sin” in the world.  Hmm, I’m pretty sure that I “sinned” this morning, but nobody got shot.

Then the writers stated writing their pieces.  Scott Lemieux wrote the piece linked above, in which he asserts that as well as the overabundance of guns needing to be on the agenda, the marginalisation of black people needs to be added if there is to be a settlement.  He is wrong.  I say, and many other people agree, that the overabundance of guns should be the first and last item on the agenda.

No one can doubt that African Americans are (typically) marginalised in American society and less wealthy than their white citizen-brothers.  I’d like you to consider a comparison with France.  France too has a large and marginalised black community.  But France does not have the level of homicides that America has.  France has !.0 homicides per hundred thousand head of population.  In America, that figure is 4.8.

The whole world was shocked in January this year when they read of the shootings at a newspaper office in Paris, France.  Once again, during and after the event, there were excuses made by the rather ill-informed American gun lobby.  They pointed to the fact that there isn’t a “culture” in France of having a “good guy with a gun” everywhere to counter the bad guys (though, since America’s homicide rate is four times that of France, the “good guy” approach is surely a failure).  They said that with guns it is impossible to defend oneself.

Then in France this month came a report of a gun incident on a train.  It appeared that a terrorist was moments away from launching a devastating attack on the Amsterdam to Paris Express.  But, fortunately, around a half dozen people had successfully raised the alarm and captured the criminal.  Not one of those heroes was armed.  How can that be possible, if the only way to defend oneself is with a gun?

The plain fact of the matter us that the only item that needs attention is the overabundance of guns in America.  These guns are used to shoot youths innocently walking along the sidewalk, people in movie theatres, and even recently an armed man attacked a police station in Texas (surely no one would be stupid enough to assert that the police station was a gun free zone?).  When gun yahoos learn that I am in Europe they point to how “dangerous” Britain is.  They highlight the murder of Lee Rigby, but can’t explain how in a country with 100 million “good guys with guns” a similar homicide was allowed to happen in New Jersey.  They say that criminals simply use other weapons (they don’t; the evidence of the lower homicide rate says that criminals simply don’t resort to violence.  Could this be because Europe does not have America’s culture of violence?)  They say…they say anything possible, even attacking my right to free speech, rather than what they actually should be saying.  That gun homicides do not occur in locations where there are no guns.

Well, that’s seven hundred odd words…and still no gun fire in this “gun-free zone”.

Today in World History: August 11th

An important part of the puzzle is to remember that under the Weimar Republic’s electoral system Germany couldn’t really be governed properly since dozens of different parties gained seats in the national parliament.
(Also, I’m sure it’s a typo but…Hitler gained power in the EARLY thirties…)

According to History

The Weimar Republic, the government of Germany after World War One, adopted its constitution on this day in 1919. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was stripped of its overseas possessions, and had to make many concessions to the victorious Allied Powers. This included subsidies to the Allies, forcing Germany into a deep economical recession. To buy their groceries, the German citizens had to carry around wheelbarrows of money, as by 1921, one Mark, the German currency, was equal to one third of an American cent. Although Germany’s economy was actually still quite healthy and capable by the end of the war, the London Ultimatum of 1921 forced them to pay reparations that they could not afford. This was paired with the Weimar Government, named after the city in Thuringia, Germany,  in which the constitution was drafted in. The government could not handle the demands pushed forwards by the rest of…
