Sarah Palin vrea sa invadeze Cehia (Parodie from Daily Currant)

Aprilie 23, 2013


Intr-un interviu la televiziunea pentru ratatii razboinici de dreapta fara de leac, fostul guvernator al statului Alaska, Sarah Palin, a spus:

„We don’t know everything about these suspects yet,” Palin told Fox and Friends this morning, referring to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who allegedly carried out the Boston Marathon attacks. „But we know they were Muslims from the Czech Republic.

„I betcha I speak for a lot of Americans when I say I want to go over there right now and start teaching those folks a lesson. And let’s not stop at the Czech Republic, let’s go after all Arab countries.

„The Arabians need to learn that they can’t keep comin’ over here and blowing stuff up. Let’s set off a couple of nukes in Islamabad, burn down Prague, then bomb the heck out of Tehran. We need to show them that we mean business.”

Desi gazdele emisiunii, Steve Doocy si Gretchen Carlson, au incercat sa corecteze geografia intervievatei, Sarah Palin, acestia i-au salutat sovinismul.

„Well Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan, which isn’t Arab,” Carlson corrected, „and Tehran is the capital of Iran, which is predominantly Persian. But I do see your point.”

„Also Czech Republic isn’t really an Arab or even Muslim country, I don’t think,” Doocy added, „but otherwise what you’re saying makes a lot of sense. I think most Americans wish Obama would step up and lead on this one.”

Dar Palin nu se lasa intimidata si continua.

„Steve, that’s probably one of the most ignorant things I’ve ever heard. How is Czech Republic not a Muslim country? You saw those brothers, they were Islamic and they were Chechen!”

„Yes there were Muslim and they were ethnic Chechens,” Doocy started, „but they grew up mostly in Kyrgyzstan and the United States. And more importantly, Chechens don’t come from the Czech Republic, they come from Chechnya, which is part of Russia. „

„What’s the difference?” Palin responded. „Isn’t Russia part of the Czech Republic?”

„No, the Czech Republic is a separate country. It’s part of the European Union and a strong NATO ally,” Doocy noted. „But heck, why not? Let’s invade. What could go wrong?”

„Yeah and while we’re at it,” Carlson added, „let’s call the Queen of England and see if the U.K. will join us.”

Dupa acest interviu, Palin a acuzat Fox News pentru agenda lor partinitoare pro-islamica si „pro-geografie”. Palin chiar a bagat Fox News in aceeasi oala cu presa liberala. LOL!

Mare ti-e gradina ta Doamne. Nu-i de mirare ca nimeni nu-i suporta pe americanii republicani. Ce conteaza ca cecenii nu sunt cehi, ca Cehia nu face parte din Rusia, ca iranienii sunt persi, ca pakistanezii nu sunt arabi, ca nu toti arabii sunt teroristi, ce conteaza ca esti o curva politica finantata sa spui prostii sovine si razboinice, ce conteaza ca habar n-ai pic de geografie, conteaza sa fii un american dur si „patriot”. Nu va faceti griji, dragi republicani. Dumnezeu iubeste DOAR America, uraste orice alta tara care „nu-i cu voi” si ii uraste pe democratii aia nenorociti de stanga (socialisti/comunisti). God Bless America! In God we trust!

PS: Interviul/povestea este o parodie, iar comentariile mele sunt un pamflet 😛


Fox News si publicul lor ar trebuie sa se impuste pe loc

Aprilie 13, 2013

Fox News a criticat vacanta lui Jay Z si Beyonce in Cuba, evident fara niciun argument. S-au bazat doar pe minciuni abjecte, spunand ca in Cuba domneste Apartheidul si ca Che Guevara a fost rasit. Nu-mi vine sa cred ca un asemenea post este lasat sa debiteze o astfel de propaganda mizerabila, fara niciun fel de consecinta.

42 reasons to loathe Margaret Thatcher, by a british citizen

Aprilie 9, 2013

1. She supported the retention of capital punishment.
2. She destroyed the country’s manufacturing industry, creating the untenable situation Britain endures today whereby we import everything from either Germany, the USA, or China. Britain went from a world leader in manufacturing to an international joke.
3. She voted against the relaxation of divorce laws.
4. She abolished free milk for schoolchildren („Margaret Thatcher, Milk Snatcher” being a popular slogan at the time).
5. She supported more freedom for business (and look how that has turned out).
6. She gained support from the National Front in the 1979 election by pandering to the fears of immigration.
7. She gerrymandered local authorities by forcing through council house sales, at the same time preventing councils from spending the money they got for selling houses on building new houses (spending on social housing dropped by 67% in her premiership).
8. She was responsible for 3.6 million unemployed – the highest figure and the highest proportion of the workforce in history and three times the previous government. Massaging of the figures means that the figure was closer to 5 million, and this still does not take into account those forced on to incapacity benefits.
9. She ignored intelligence about Argentinian preparations for the invasion of the Falkland Islands and scrapped the only Royal Navy presence in the islands.
10. The poll tax (an unfair tax levied equally on every member of society regardless of income)
11. She presided over the closure of 150 coal mines; we are now crippled by the cost of energy, having to import expensive coal from abroad.
12. She compared her „fight” against the miners to the Falklands War.
13. She privatised state monopolies such as energy and created the corporate greed culture that we’ve been railing against for the last 5 years.
14. She introduced the gradual privatisation of the NHS.
15. She introduced financial deregulation in a way that turned city institutions into avaricious money pits which led directly to the 2008 crash.
16. She pioneered the unfailing adoration and unquestioning support of the USA, prior to this support had been more bilateral and measured.
17. She allowed the US to place nuclear missiles on UK soil, under US control.
18. Section 28, a homophobic clause reading that a local council „shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality” or „promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship”.
19. She opposed anti-apartheid sanctions against South Africa and described Nelson Mandela as „that grubby little terrorist”.
20. She supported the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and sent the SAS to train their soldiers.
21. She allowed the US to bomb Libya in 1986, against the wishes of more than 2/3 of the population.
22. She opposed the reunification of Germany.
23. She invented Quangos (shady government/private bodies with powers to influence policy but very little supervision)
24. She increased VAT from 8% to 17.5%, an evil flat tax on all.
25. She had the lowest approval rating of any post-war Prime Minister
26. Her post-PM job? Consultant to Philip Morris tobacco at $250,000 a year, plus $50,000 per speech
27. The Al Yamamah contract
28. She opposed the indictment of Chile’s General Pinochet.
29. Social unrest under her leadership was higher than at any time since the General Strike.
30. She presided over interest rates increasing to 15%.
31. BSE (deregulation of what could be fed to farm animals).
32. She presided over 2 million manufacturing job losses in the 79-81 recession.
33. She opposed the inclusion of Eire in the Northern Ireland peace process, exacerbating the feeling of unrest amongst the Catholic population.
34. She supported sanctions-busting arms deals with South Africa during apartied.
35. Cecil Parkinson, Alan Clark, David Mellor, Jeffrey Archer, Jonathan Aitkin, corruption after corruption.
36. Crime rates doubled under Thatcher.
37. Black Wednesday – Britain withdraws from the ERM and the pound is devalued. Cost to Britain – £3.5 billion; profit for George Soros – £1 billion.
38. Poverty doubled whilst she opposed a minimum wage.
39. She privatised public services, claiming at the time it would increase public ownership. Most are now owned either by foreign governments (EDF) or major investment houses. The profits don’t now accrue to the taxpayer, but to foreign or institutional shareholders. British energy bills fund cheap energy for the rest of the continent.
40. She cut 75% of funding to museums, galleries and other sources of education.
41. In the Thatcher years the top 10% of earners received almost 50% of the tax remissions.
42. 21.9% inflation.

She inspired many other governments to instigate similar reforms as part of the massive lurch to the right in the last 30 years.
The list of reasons why this woman deserves to rot in hell for all eternity is endless.

Thatcher a murit, si mama ce-o mai plang romanii religiosi

Aprilie 8, 2013

„Until industrial feudalism is replaced by industrial democracy, politics will be the shadow cast on society by big business.”

~John Dewey

Hai sa luam o pauza cu „so” ierte Dumnezeu si marfa ar fi daca voi crestinilor ati invata sa scrieti corect romaneste (s-o), si sa ne uitam la FAPTE.
-Thatcher a mostenit o tara cu un somaj de 1 milion
-Sub politicile ei somajul a crescut pana la aproape 4 milioane
-Inflatie a crescut si ea, dobanda ajungand pana la 15%
-A reusit sa dubleze numarul copiilor traind in saracie la 28%
-Sub politicile ei salariile au fost inghetate si reduse
-Thatcher a reusit sa dezindustrializeze tara, sa mareasca discrepanta dintre saraci si bogati, a reusit sa creeze o clasa de mijloc nesindicalizata, fortata sa accepte ore mai lungi de munca, salarii mai mici; iar lumea era prea speriata sa protesteze de frica lipsei locurilor de munca
-Pe langa asta, Thatcher alaturi de SUA a contribut la moartea a 2 milioane de oameni in Cambodia, datorat asa zisului Year Zero. Recomand sa cititi investigatia lui John Pilger, Cum Thatcher i-a dat o mana de ajutor lui Pol Pot:

-Thatcher alaturi de Mitterand si Reagan au creat un trio al neoliberalismului. Ceea ce vedeti in sistemul trans-atlantic, in special in Europa, este mostenirea politicilor acestor 3 adepti ai neoliberalismului. Mostenirea lor se bazeaza pe religiozitate economica (pe mituri), pe alienarea clasei de mijloc, crearea de saraci si de somaj, salarii mici, austeritate, ore lungi de munca, si profituri uriase pentru corporatisti. Statu cvoul nu doreste full employment, deoarece somajul pune presiune pe salarii sa ramana mici, si sa nu tina pas cu productivitatea muncii. „Daca nu-ti convine, pleaca! Pe postul asta mai sunt 1000 ca tine.” Lor nu le place sa fie in situatia inversa. „Ma angajezi azi? Ca mai sunt o gramada de patroni la care ma pot duce.”

Corporatiile nu vor sa auda de costuri, de acoperire de sanatate samd. Toti vor profituri uriase cu efort minim.

Faza ca ea a salvat tara de la faliment este o minciuna abjecta. Un guvern cu suveranitate monetara, indatoriat in propria moneda NU poate sa dea faliment. Marea Britanie este un astfel de stat, precum SUA, Japonia, Turcia, Pakistan, India, Cuba, Israel, Iran, Elvetia etc.
Deficitul guvernmanetal este egal cu economisirea neta a sistemului privat. Singurul mod prin care sistemul privat poate economisi, este ca guvernul sa ruleze un deficit fiscal. Guvernul creeaza fiat prin circularea monedei in cheltuielile sale guvernamentale, si o distruge via taxare. Taxele NU finanteaza cheltuielile publice. Taxarea permite activitatea economica sa se petreaca intr-un mediu non-inflationar.
MIT: Deficitele guvernamentalea fura credit ce-ar putea fi folosit de mediul privat.
MIT: Deficitele guvernamentale maresc dobanzile in piata.
MIT: Guvernul trebuie sa-si taxeze propria moneda inainte s-o cheltuiasca.
MIT: Dobanzile mici produc inflatie.

Adevar: Cererea agregata creeaza productie. Producatorii nu pot produce, daca nu pot vinde. Si ei nu pot vinde, daca noi nu putem cumpara. Cererea agregata se creeaza prin marirea deficitului fiscal indeajuns de mult pentru a satisface nevoia sectorului privat de a economisi. Orice tara net exportatoare este o net importatoare de cerere agregata.
Atat timp cat exista forta de munca disponibila/somaj (oameni care vor sa munceasca) si resurse neutilizate, guvernul fie taxeza prea mult, fie cheltuie prea putin, sau ambele. Dobanzile de 0% NU produc inflatie. Nu exista dovezi empirice in acest sense. Japonia practic a rulat dobanzi de 0% timp de mai bine de un deceniu, si tot a avut deflatie. De ce? Fiindca Quantitative Easing fara stimulus fiscal NU conduce la crearea de noi imprumuturi/la activarea consumului.

Why Margaret Thatcher was bad for Britain

by Ian Jones

When Margaret Thatcher left Downing Street for the last time as prime minister in November 1990, she told the press: „We’re very happy that we leave the United Kingdom in a very, very much better state than when we came here 11-and-a-half years ago.”

Judged against certain criteria, she had a point. Few enjoy paying tax: her time in No 10 saw the basic rate fall from 33p to 25p and the top rate plunge from 83p to 40p. Everybody enjoys more disposable income: during her premiership, the average salary rose from £5,427 to £15,252. She also oversaw a decline in the annual number of working days lost in strikes from 29.5m to 1.9m.

Dig beneath the surface of these statistics, however, and a different picture emerges. In order to achieve constructive changes, Mrs Thatcher subjected Britain to a sequence of destructive upheavals. Her cure for the UK’s ills was attractive enough for a portion of its population to vote her into office three times, but the medicine was so objectionable she never received majority support.

In short, the apparatus she used to achieve her goals harmed just as many – if not more – than they helped. This was because her policies tended to involve short-term pain for many, but long-term gain for only a few.

Inflation doubled

Rather than stimulating the economy through investment and tax cuts, she tried to control the amount of money in circulation. Mrs Thatcher thought this would reduce inflation from its 1979 level of 10.3%. It didn’t. Inflation doubled within a year and only fell to present day levels of 2-3% in 1986.

By this point, the damage had been done. To get to such a low level, indirect taxes had been hiked (VAT rose from 8% to 15%), as had interest rates (topping 17%). Subsidies for industry were reduced. The result was a massive rise in unemployment from 1.4m in 1979 to 3.5m by 1982, or one in eight people out of work. „I knew that when you change from one set of policies to another, the transition is very difficult,” Mrs Thatcher later reflected, „but benefits would come in the longer run.”

A disunited kingdom

Benefits did come, but not for everyone. Long-term unemployment blighted an entire generation in Northern Ireland (where 20% of people were left out of work), Scotland and the NE and NW of England (16%). Supporters insisted work was there to be found; critics argued it was unreasonable to expect people to leave homes and families to take a job 100 miles away.

A disunited kingdom emerged, as some parts of the country flourished while others faltered. Industry declined in the north; new sectors such as financial services boomed in the south. Mrs Thatcher went further, advocating both economic and moral belligerence. There was „no such thing as society, there are individual men and women and there are families.” People should look to their own and not rely on the government for help.

This crystallised into her observation that the only reason the Good Samaritan did any good was „because he had money”. Fine: everyone wants money and some made a lot during the Thatcher years, but what if you happened to live in a place where you couldn’t earn any?

Selective prosperity

The prosperity Mrs Thatcher brought to Britain was selective, antagonistic and temporary. She did indeed leave Britain „very, very much better”, but only for some. She also left it in recession, with unemployment, inflation and interest rates rising.

Above all, not only was she bad for the country during her premiership, she continues to be bad for the country today. The causes of the present slump – unrestricted credit, deregulation and too much financial speculation – all date back to the 1980s. No successive government dared reverse these decisions: a blessing to her legacy, but a curse we must now all share.


Romania are un deficit de output de 12$ miliarde (MMT Revolution)

Aprilie 3, 2013

Am ajuns la acest numar prin impartirea PIB-ului (170 miliarde de dolari) la o rata a somajului de 7%. Cum ar putea guvernul roman sa stimuleze cererea agregata, daca si-ar retrage candidatura de a adera la zona euro, fiind astfel scapata de sub jugul de 3% deficit fiscal?

Ce as face eu, daca as fi desemnat sa alcatuiesc politicile de stimulus fiscal: (deoarece cam tot ce cheltuie statul pe “proiecte” fie se fura prea mult, fie se fac de mantuiala, fie se fac peste 5 ani, fie all the above – ma concentrez mai mult pe reducerea apasarii fiscale si pe marirea salariilor)

  1. 1- Reducerea TVA-ului de la 24% la 15%
    2- Marirea salariului minim pe economie cu 50%
    3- Taierea asigurarilor obligatorii de sanatate pentru angajat si angajator cu 50% fiecare
    4- Dublarea salariilor pentru asistente, doctori, serviciile de urgenta (ambulanta), si pentru profesori (Dupa parerea mea, sanatatea si educatia sunt pilonii principali ai unui stat national suveran, fiindca acesti oameni asigura traiul cetateanului in prezent si in viitor. Educatia si Sanatatea raman doua domenii “labor intensive”. Industria, infrastructura, si agricultura mai putin. Acestea devin tot mai mult “capital intensive”.)
    5- Cota progresiva: 8%, 12%, 16%, 20%. Ultimul prag sa fie aplicat celor ce castiga peste 100 de milioanei lei vechi pe luna.
    6- Indexarea pensiilor, ajutorului social, de somaj, indemnizatia pentru mame cu rata inflatiei. Fara chained CPI bullshit.

    Daca cineva isi pune intrebari vis-a-vis de cum isi va „finanta” deficitul bugetar guvernul roman, aveti aici raspuns:
