I’ve Been Working to many hours…

By ATWadmin On April 25th, 2009 at 12:45 pm

Been doing a start up for British Airlines Catering at a new kitchen here in Philly, and averaging about 70 hours a week. I don’t mind starting a new job or doing the hours, but I think I have had enough of the Airline Business. I believe it’s time for me to find a new industry to work in.

Well let’s see I have a lot of catching up to do, and only one day to do it in along with a whole bunch of household chores.

The Marxist brothers to the south of us have declared Capitalismas the bane of the earth. It’s really quite a funny read. A declaration that basically states communism is the worlds only hope and capitalism is the root of the whole worlds problems. Same ole claptrap we heard spouted out of the moths of Lenin and Stalin as they marched people off to their deaths in Gulags and executions. What was the count something over 100 million?

 

 

 

 

 

The Mad Algore was up on capital hill screaming the sky is falling again, and in a true show of fair and balance UK’s Lord Christopher Monckton, a former science advisor to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, House Democrats have refused to allow him to appear alongside former Vice President Algore. Now no matter what you think of Moncktonhe at least has more credentials on the subject than Igore does. The problem is if you allow both sides to be heard they may not get away with installing the greatest Ponzi scheme ever with Cap and Trade. That and ‘The House Democrats don’t want Gore HUMILIATED!’

The other thing we can’t ignore is the total lack of sense the CDCis showing at the outbreak of what could be a pandemic of Swine-Avian-Human Flu Explodes out of Mexico. I would feel better if they closed the border now. I won’t even get into the Al-Queda plan of starting an epidemic in Mexico that would spread to the US or the cell of them that died trying to create a virus with the Black Plague.

Well just somethings that caught my eye while I’ve been working.

UPDATE: on the FLU

The first case was seen in Mexico on April 13. The outbreak coincided with the President Barack Obama;s trip to Mexico City on April 16. Obama was received at Mexico’s anthropology museum in Mexico City by Felipe Solis, a distinguished archeologist who died the following day from symptoms similar to flu, Reforma newspaper reported

Big fan of the Sugababes here and this is a bit of a grooving old tune!

 

THE CELTIC WHINGE….

By ATWadmin On April 25th, 2009 at 10:38 am

Heard of the Celtic fringe? Well, it seems that historian David Starkey has incurred the wrath of the Celtic Whinge for his comments on Scotland/Wales/Ireland when a panelist on Question Time earlier this week! (and live blogged over on Biased BBC by yours truly)

“MPs are demanding an apology over remarks made by the outspoken historian Dr David Starkey. Starkey described Scotland as a “feeble little country” and said Robert Burns was a “deeply boring provincial poet.” He made the comments on the BBC’s Question Time programme after he was asked if he supported a public holiday for St George’s Day. Dr Starkey has refused to apologise and says he stands by his comments. To boos from the audience, Dr Starkey said: “If we decide to go down this route of having an English national day, that means we become a feeble little country, just like the Scots and the Welsh and the Irish.

Once upon a time England was a great country. Remember we’re distinguished by the fact that we don’t have national dress.  “We don’t make a great fuss about Shakespeare like the Scots do about that deeply boring provincial poet Burns.”  He said England did not have national music “like the awful bagpipes”.  “What the Scots and Welsh (and Irish) are, are typical small nations with a romantic 19th Century-style nationalism,” he said.  After Thursday’s broadcast, some viewers rang the BBC switchboard to complain, with one describing his remarks as “racist and hurtful to the Scottish people.”

LO – are the Scots that far gone that their poor little feelings are hurt? Well said Starkey –  a lot of truth in what you said and THAT is why they squeal like stuck Celtic pigs on a stick.

Hooray for the gay historian who is more conservative than most Conservatives!

 

IRISH SHOPPING AND NO BULL…

Have a look at this – it’s a remarkable video of what happened in an Irish supermarket last week! No bull. Wonder what he made of the fresh meat counter???

IN THE NAME OF EFFICIENCY..

By ATWadmin On April 25th, 2009 at 10:01 am

I see that Northern Ireland Co-First  Minister Peter “Laughing Boy”Robinson believes Stormont’s 11 departments could be slashed to six.

 In a speech to the Construction Employers’ Ferderation, the DUP leader said that the public sector had to accept that it had to take “difficult decisions” about where to make cuts without impacting on government services used by the public.

Since IRA/Sinn Fein opposes ANY such reduction, it won’t happening anyway BUT it’s interesting to consider WHY Peter Robinson seeks this move.

He CLAIMS it is about driving efficiency but there are a few points he does not elucidate upon;

1.  How many civil service jobs will be axed?

2.  If concentrating power in the hands of even fewer politicians  is the best way forward, why is he not arguing for the axing to the number of MLA’s?

3. How many quangos does he plan to close?

As ever with Robinson, it’s all froth and no substance. He likes to think he comes across as a tough talking no-nonsense Torquemada on wasteful expenditure even whilst he heads up an administration which is waste incarnate.

BIG BROTHER LOVES YOU…

It’s NOT that we live in a police state it’s just that every phone call, email or website visit will be monitored by the state under plans to be unveiled next week. Got that?

Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, will argue the powers are needed to target terrorists and serious criminals who are taking advantage of the increasing complex nature of communications to plot atrocities and crimes. A consultation document on the plans, known in Whitehall as the Interception Modernisation Programme, is likely to put great emphasis on the threat facing Britain and warn the alternative to the powers would be a massive expansion of surveillance. But that will fuel concerns among critics that the Government is using a climate of fear to expand the surveillance state.

Too right. This government has no interest in fighting terrorism – certainly not of the Islamic or Irish hue. But it enjoys cloaking its own totalitarian mindset in the drapes of saving us from bad guys.

This Labour government wants to control all we say and do – that’s the bottom-line, and so what could be more natural than conferring the RIGHT upon the police that they can monitor everything we do?

NO CEASEFIRE UNTIL THE LAST TIGER IS CAGED, OR DEAD

By ATWadmin On April 25th, 2009 at 9:19 am

I see the usual hand wringers at the UN are trying to engineer a ceasefire in Sri Lanka even as the government advances on the last refuges of the Tamil Tiger terrorists. I trust they are ignored and that the Sri Lanka government tracks down every remaining Tiger, imprisons them or else kills them. I hold the view that the prefered course of action with terrorists is to kill them. I know this is ad odds with liberal thinking which believes terrorists should be defeated by rewarding them but I figure that making tigers extinct in Sr Lanka will auger in a new era of peace. Let’s hope the UN fails – which is, after all, the one thing it’s good at! 

I Cannot Believe It!!

To The Editor,

The Times

Printing House Square

Sir,

I don’t know how to begin to show my revulsion at the annual display of Racism and Xenophobia which shall be played out on the streets of our Capital City tomorrow morning.

I just cannot believe that such an event would be tolerated; nay not only tolerated but actively encouraged, year after dispiriting year, by both the City of London and the Mayor of London’s office, but the evidence is right before our eyes! There will be massive numbers of police on parade, all of whom will be encouraging the hoped-for ending of savagery and bloodshed; which ending so far fortunately over the years has not occurred. Council employees are busy as I write in marking the route which this disgusting event will follow, and I cannot credit that such encouragement is given the participants by both Council and Government Departments.

I of course refer to the annual racist display where three Kenyans and four or more Ethiopians are chased by over thirty-odd thousand British people, none of whom fortunately have the slightest chance of catching the seven or eight black runners who are let loose some ten seconds before the ravening pack of Fascist followers are freed from their chains.

I particularly detest the fact that even people, including some of the gentler-sex who are wheel-chair bound are encouraged to show their detestation of the arrival in London of these emaciated Africans, whose only crime is that they are Black!

 

I am, Sir,

As ever,

Pro Bono Publico
