The Dutch are starting a campaign to turn their citizens into snitches, by educating them on the means to spot and turn in illegal marijuana growers. The article talks about the “risk” associated with these illegal growers, whom get accused of stealing power to keep their hydroponic operations going, to give this campaign the veneer of legitimacy. But the real reason that the Dutch government is doing this is never mentioned. From the article:… Read more

Switzerland will hold a vote on whether to introduce a basic income for all adults, in a further sign of growing public activism over pay inequality since the financial crisis.
A grassroots committee is calling for all adults in Switzerland to receive an unconditional income of 2,500 Swiss francs ($2,800) per month from the state, with the aim of providing a financial safety net for the population.
Organizers submitted more than the 100,000
Nick Baumann over at Slate, a hard core leftist, has an unbelievably stupid post up titled “Neville Chamberlain was right“, where he makes the insane assertion that Chamberlain, the man that let Hitler rape Czechoslovakia and emboldened him to actually think that he could do whatever he wanted, because the diplomatic types, in an effort to avoid conflict, would turn a blind eye to his efforts. No, I am not making that up. … Read more
And I have to say that as far as insane scenarios go, to me, this one would rank second, right after the one where France votes itself into an Islamic Republic, and then decides it needs to conquer the rest of Europe. I do have to say that a horde of angry & starving marxist-wannabe frogs charging you to steal your shit is a funny thing to war game against, but the Swiss might be … Read more
Them Swedes sure are freaky folks and I do mean freaky:
A man who openly masturbated on a Stockholm beach has been acquitted of sexual assault in court after it was ruled he was not targeting a specific person, with the prosecutor saying it’s “okay” to play with yourself in public.
Guess I am gonna hear a lot more stories of people whipping it out and spanking it furiously in Sweden whenever the urge hits … Read more
Strategy Page has an awesome post about why the public in Western countries have turned on their leader’s decision to intervene in Syria, because of the supposed use of Chemical weapons by the Assad regime on the opposition. Now, remember that these leaders suddenly feel compelled to act because of some hard to verify attack that killed some 300 to 1000 people, depending on the source, in a conflict where over 100,000 people have … Read more
If you hear Joe Biden and John Kerry talk, they all but are 100% certain Bashar Assad himself used chemical weapons on people to justify the WH’s recent need to create a diversion from all the scandals popping up. Unfortunately for these two, and the people that like them feel the evidence is a slam dunk, even the LSM finds some doubt. With that country in chaos, who’s to say that the chemical attack … Read more
British Prime Minister David Cameron is proposing a new firewall on British ISP’s. In addition to blocking material like violent pornography, it will included an “opt in” option for any pornography. If you’re wondering how long it will be before the list of people who “opt in” to porn gets leaked to embarrass them, it will probably be measurable in femtoseconds.
Even on its own terms, Cameron’s Great Firewall is objectionable. As EFF points out, … Read more
First off, who doesn’t love a girl with an accent?
“Slobbering, sycophantic fawning by the media”, it’s contagious.
Nile Gardiner aside (why should he have all the fun?) whenever a European puts down the rose colored glasses (and the koolaid)and gives some jazz to Obama, my ears automatically prick up.
Being right about almost everything she mentions, I forgive her for her “Hugs, not bombs” rant, labeling him a war criminal, she forgets the Obama … Read more
