Everybody loves a good Trot.

Sobriety, solemnity, petit-bourgeois decency, and best of all…

Peering Through the Net

Please remember that the great sages of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and most faiths, still have a great deal to teach people.

Try and put aside any metaphysical prejudices you may have (or indeed fear of such!) and don’t let the words be a barrier.

Liberals can read Marx or Mao and sift through whatever is inessential in the ‘semantics.’ Read more Peering Through the Net

What If The Governments of the World Were Run Like Game Shows? (2/2)

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES

 

Contestants will don the uniform of their countries secret police to torment detainees, both legitimate and innocent, for information.

The players will be judged on both the quality of the information acquired and the inventiveness of the techniques used to get that information. Read more What If The Governments of the World Were Run Like Game Shows? (2/2)

What If The Governments of the World Were Run Like Game Shows? (1/2)

In many countries of the world the government is the sole producer of all television broadcasting.

They decide what will be aired, what will be written, who will star in what and who will be shot for making the wrong joke.

What if they just went a step further and ran the governments just like they were game shows (aren’t they anyway?)
Maybe the results would be something like this: Read more What If The Governments of the World Were Run Like Game Shows? (1/2)

Buddhism May be the Religion of Peace… But Hitch Was Having None of it

http://www.salon.com/1998/07/13/news_79/

Far from his holier-than-all image, the Dalai Lama supports such questionable causes as India’s nuclear testing, sex with prostitutes and accepting donations from a Japanese terrorist cult.

Oh dear. Somebody tell Hollywood. What a horrific hate crime.

Old Chris is insulting the religion of peace. Next thing people will be calling the 5th Dalai Lama a ‘bigot’ for commanding the skulls of his enemies to become ‘like eggs smashing against a rock.’ Read more Buddhism May be the Religion of Peace… But Hitch Was Having None of it

Do It Yourself Future News Headlines

If you look at enough different newspapers enough different times you find things can be quite similar.

The rags always seem to be re-circulating the same type of newsworthy cadavers again and again.

The names and the places change, but the content is cloned.

It gets to the point where you can pretty much predict what the ‘new’ news will be about before it even becomes happens.

In fact, one might as well make up his own news- it won’t be that different from the real event! It never stopped our new Glorious Leader! Read more Do It Yourself Future News Headlines

George Osborne Facing Possible Death Sentence in Indonesia for Cocaine Offenses

Former UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne (formerly known as Gideon Osborne) has recently been arrested for drug possession and trafficking offenses in Indonesia.

Indonesia, like many countries in Southeast and Northeast Asia, has very stringent laws on narcotics.

And a number of British citizens have fallen afoul of these drug laws in recent years; finding themselves confined for decades to the depressing squalour of grotesque mass prisons.

Some have even been executed.

And confidential sources now tell us Osborne himself is likely to meet the same fate. Speaking on condition of anonymity, one source close to the Indonesian government tells Glossy News: Read more George Osborne Facing Possible Death Sentence in Indonesia for Cocaine Offenses

Trots Vs Tories: Is this the Only Possible Option?

In a well developed economy, you can’t have wealth without reasonable distribution. You can’t have reasonable distribution without wealth.
This leads to only one reasonable conclusion:
Mixed economies are the realistic, pragmatic approach in a world that has a reality bias, an objectivity bias, a bruteness bias…
A world of radical imperfection, entirely composed of trade-offs and not solutions.

The Destructive Effects of Capitalism

I wanted to read an article entitled “The Destructive Effects of Capitalism.” It was written by an intellectual who was somewhat right about most everything except practicality. He’s one of those people who writes a lot of those sounds good, won’t work articles.

In his last published opinion he used the term green rape when referring to air pollution, greed and environmental damage. In the comments section I tried to lighten the tone by adding that if you put an “se” in front of rape it becomes a tasseled shawl people wear in Spain, Mexico and gay pride parades.

Salon Slam Slanderous Syrian Smearwork, Big Up Blair

Recently, we discussed a leaked Syrian intel document. It turns out that the UK government and the Tony Blair Faith Foundation have all been identified as violent extremists.

However, notable champagne socialist and latte liberal rag Salon objects strongly to this “hideous misrepresentation of the tragically beleaguered and oppressed humanitarian interventionist community.”

One radical Salonista tear-jerkingly (not to say circle-jerkingly!) notes: Read more Salon Slam Slanderous Syrian Smearwork, Big Up Blair
