Why are these people always surprised about this phenomenon?

What am I talking about? Well, the fact that the more left leaning ideas take hold and drive policy and living in a country, the harder hit the middle class becomes. From the UK Spectator article we get:

To Voltaire, the British class system could be summed up in a sentence. The people of these islands, he said, ‘are like their own beer; froth on top, dregs at bottom, the middle excellent’. A harsh

Cameron’s Firewall

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

You Go, Girl

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

Packing Brits

Blimey, our cousins across the pond would like a fighting chance, just like the rest of us:

A Daily Telegraph online poll has revealed that over 80 percent of Brits would rather a repeal on the hand gun ban over various other “new law” choices.

Uh oh, so much for the notion of living in a gun free zone.

With the Woolwich attack some folks have figured out that living gun free is a … Read more

Collectivism rocks!

And it is awesome that it is practically always the idiots that are the hardest believers of this nonsense religion that get screwed the hardest by it:

Greek youth unemployment rose above 60 per cent for the first time in February, reflecting the pain caused by the country’s crippling recession after years of austerity under its international bailout.

Greece’s jobless rate has almost tripled since the country’s debt crisis emerged in 2009 and was more

About damned time…

That we did this:

April 10, 2013: For the first time in 69 years, there are no American tanks in Europe. On March 18th the United States shipped home 22 M-1 tanks, bringing to an end seven decades of American armor in Europe.

I am hoping that all the free money we where injecting in the European economy as they avoided any defense spending came home with those Abhrams tanks.… Read more

Margeret Thatcher, R.I.P.

The Iron lady has passed away. As far as I am concerned she was the European leader with the biggest balls in the last 75 years and a blessing to the British people. She was a giant, and part of the trio that came together to tear down the evil Empire. We are all blessed to have had her there when she was most needed, and we should all be saddened that we will … Read more

Hypocritical leftists exposed, yet again.

Remember how progressive Hollande won in France and immediately, in the name of social justice and fairness, implemented a 75% tax on the evil rich? Remember them demonizing those amongst the evil rich that opted to move elsewhere to avoid the fisting? Depardieu is now a Russian or Belgian because of that nonsense tax. People like him where called evil monsters. And then we find out that at least one of the elite that told … Read more

The Latest on Cyprus

A new deal has been reached and looks likely to pass:

Cyprus clinched a last-ditch deal with international lenders to shut down its second-largest bank and inflict heavy losses on uninsured depositors, including wealthy Russians, in return for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout.

The agreement came hours before a deadline to avert a collapse of the banking system in fraught negotiations between President Nicos Anastasiades and heads of the European Union, the European

Cyprus Hell

As you may have heard, Cyprus is being bailed out by the EU and the terms are rather striking:

The euro zone agreed on Saturday to hand Cyprus a bailout worth 10 billion euros ($13 billion), but demanded depositors in its banks forfeit some money to stave off bankruptcy despite the risk of a wider run on savings.

The eastern Mediterranean island becomes the fifth country after Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain to turn
