Now where have I heard that ‘song’ before?

If the varied and various headlines published over the past few days, and indeed weeks are anything to go by, the Scottish Referendum should be viewed as a complete change in British Politics. The ‘Independence’ claims of ‘Freedom’ and ‘self-rule’ are there in plenty, as well as the undertones, always evident from the Celtic fringe, of a release from the servitude of centuries, of a forced bow towards Westminster, of having to be allowed to spend tax-payers money which stems from the wealth stemming from Scots oil and gas. Much more has been written, and spoken, by the Scots ‘Yes’ campaign, but all along the, the same theme emerges from these Scots politicians; ‘Trust us, and we shall deliver you and Scotland towards the Elysian Fields, and it will not cost you anything’!

Much the same thing, but on a much more negative note, comes from the speeches of the ‘No’ campaign; more dire warnings from a bunch of politicians and observers gathered together, for expediency purposes, under their ‘No Thanks’ banner. We hear of the terrible things which may befall the Scots, if they decide to ‘go it alone’, and even of the very voice of the Prime Minister ‘breaking’ with true emotion as he implores the Scottish voters to believe him and his confreres in the ‘No’ camp; whilst at the same time asking those same Scottish voters to forget that he shares the same platform with the Labour leader, a bitter enemy, and the Lib-Dim leader, another bitter enemy, but one wrapped in the colours of a Coalition.

But amidst all the clamour, the many and varied promises of a collective bunch of Politicians whom, we are justly remembering, are the same bunch who promised all those things which never came to pass, because they will never, ever, contemplate changing from the ‘status quo ante’; meaning, literally, the same as was before.

Commentators, and there are many of us, despair of being offered a true change, of a movement away from the deadly boredom of Government by Party politics, of the incessant pleas for this special treatment for a small category, or that ‘exception’ to the rules for the rest of us.

If one of the Parties: now scrambling to attempt to undo the catastrophic decisions which came forth after the totally stupid and cowardly ‘Devolution’ schemes of the early Blair/New Labour years, when the paths towards a Scottish ‘Independence’ were first cast in Legislation: had actually presented any new ideas, any faint traces of a proper ‘Democracy’; of changes which would form a Government which reacted to what the People wanted; instead of ramming through policies based on Party dogma, many would have applauded and made those changes work. But the big problem is that, in order to effect those changes, the Party politicians, together with the bulk of the invisible but powerful ‘Inner Government’ which is actually what the Whitehall Civil Service actually is, would have to give up power, and themselves be subject to the considered ‘whims’ of the people who gave their votes, and allowed the parasites in power to milch the public purse unto the tenth generation!

What is not evident, but still present, are the facts that one bunch of the ‘Old Elite’ are attempting to wrest power from the rest of the ‘Old Elite'; with not a new thought, or idea, or proposal amongst the lot of them! If you mention, even in passing, the Harrogate Solution, all you would probably get would be “Whats Harrogate got to do with it”?

 

This is not the first or last time I’ll say this….

Good God are we INSANE?  Why are we bombing Ghadafi, by helping the opposition we are aiding Iran. We are witnessing the formation of the Caliphate we don’t need to help it along. Let the animals kill each other, it’ll be just less we have to fight in the long run.

Well it’s time as Thompson would say to whip together a few raw facts, some ole negro wisdom, and put this tale out for all to gape at.  There seems to be a continuing clash of the sane against the insane, earther against spacer, greenie against techie, and the all history encompassing Moore against Christian.

We do live in interesting times, someone find that china man and shoot him. We are witnessing the formation of one Caliphate in the Middle East, they actually believe it is the end times and whether you call him the Mahdi, the 12th Imam or the Muslim Jesus they believe he is here, and he is on their side. Right, Wrong, whether you believe or not they DO, and they are sitting on a source of power to give them the ability to screw with everyone.

So what should we do, kill them all? We could, I mean shit that’s what they want to do to us. Do unto others before they do unto us, that’s what Bush said, but we don’t have the stomach for that, nor should we. So what to do?

There is no replacement for oil our whole world is made from it. Look around you. Don’t even count gasoline, just think can you live without plastic? I doubt it. Everything we use in our daily lives is made out of oil. Forget Medicine, Surgery, food containment, etc etc. There is no replacement for oil and the byproducts that we make from it. At least not yet maybe in the next hundred years someone will find something, but they haven’t yet.

The U.S. spends a minimum of $400 Billion a year on Middle Eastern oil. WHY? Because some little enviro weenie can save an owl, or a whale. Screw them, drill baby, drill. If you believe in peak oil (which I don’t) the U.S. has enough of it’s own oil for at least 200 years. Look at what man has accomplished in the last 100, if you believe we couldn’t top that in the next 100, ye have little faith, let alone little sense.

Hell we have plenty enough to keep the U.S. and the British Isles swimming in both oil and coal. Let the EU buy from Russia, except the French those bastards have been short sheeting every deal to control the machinery that goes to the Persian bastards make them deal with them.

We can not allow the enemy to dictate the terms of our economies, which is exactly what we are doing by buying from the Arabs. It is time to cut them off. We are going to have to fight these bastards sooner or later no matter what we do. Why keep giving them money, spend that $400 Billion here and we’ll not just produce oil but it will spur our internal economy back to life. And after all what’s good for America is good for the world.

Drill Here, Drill Now, and screw everyone else.
