Let’s start with the EU.
Americans of course, don’t know much about the whole malarkey of the European Union, and the big deal about Greece trying to get out of it, but over there, it’s big news.
We are hearing how Greece voted to NOT pay back their debt, thereby signing their future away forever. Here in America, we are hearing how spoiled rotten they are, how the Germans are supporting them, and how they won’t bend in, and give up some of their many benefits that they get from their welfare state.
Those lazy welfare recipients!
On the other hand, when you have a bunch of non-elected, snobby, rich, elitist bureaucrats and bankers calling all the shots in Brussels, merging countries and then redistributing the money to whomever they choose, sooner or later the house of Play your Monte Carlo Cards will fall. The government GIVES out goodies, and then takes them away. It’s a favorite pastime of governments.
“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money. “
So, Greece put up the vote: Should we stay or should we go?
The rich Greeks— didn’t want to leave the EU: “Maybe if we return to the drachma, the economy will be stronger in five years’ time. But I will have lost five years of my life.”
And the poor Greeks said: “We have to choose between cutting off our arms or cutting off our heads.”
They knew, they could lose everything voting no, as they know the BANKERS are going to grab whatever they can, because Greece’s debt is so big, it can’t ever be repaid. (sound familiar?)
And low and behold! The Greek youth got out in droves, because, why should THEY pay for the old people to stay in their mansions forever when they can’t even find a job?
Hell NO! They shouted. We vote…no.
Here’s the speech given to the people right before the vote:
Yes, it started there…in the Delta House. The true spirit of Greece, where democracy was born, rose up!
The EU is falling apart because as another person said: “You can’t fix stupid.
A 22-year-old man celebrating the Fourth of July was killed instantly over the weekend when authorities said he tried to launch fireworks from atop his head.
It seems, according to his friends, Devon had a bit too much to drink and was just horsing around.
In MY day, this is what 22- year-olds did when they were horsing around….and drunk:
Obviously, the American beer is being made in China now.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the Week?
That’s easy. Poor Devon. I refuse to judge a dead man. I think the act alone was punishment enough.
I don’t think I can express the goof-up of the EU better than the most remarkable, Daniel Hannon, who said this:
We should also look at how the EU has behaved over the past week. It has bullied, hectored, lied and threatened. It has sought to remove an elected government. It has placed the survival of the euro above the welfare of the people who use it.
Over the next year, these same Eurocrats will be threatening Britain with penury if we leave the EU. They will be supported by their British auxiliaries: those politicians and businessmen who were urging us to join the euro 15 years ago.
They were wrong then, and they’re wrong now. If little Greece can stand up to the system, so can we.
So, Congratulations EU. You win the Nobody’s Perfect Award for trying to force everyone to live under your New World Order EU ruled by idiots.
When you watch the video below, go ahead and admit…it’s creepy. The Russians think it creepy. Yes, a bearded lady, transvestite, who perhaps will become the new Poster/Jesus/boy/girl/ symbol for the New World Order—is all the rage in Europe and just won the 2104 Eurovision Song Contest.
Russian is having a wild time with it:
After last night’s 2014 song contest in Copenhagen, Russian state television broadcast a debate on her victory, as politicians and celebrities launched a hate-filled attack.
Outspoken ultranationalist MP Zhirinovsky called this year’s result “the end of Europe,” saying: “There is no limit to our outrage.
“It has turned wild. There are no more men or women in Europe, just it .”
I have to agree…since the Europeans have been protected by the United States for all these years, they have gotten soft, but if the end of Europe comes, it will be the Muslims who take it over by sheer numbers.
It’s not the fact that this—guy dressed up as a girl,( I can’t tell…but the hips are a man.) won because the song is good, and the voice is nice, it’s that she/it is presented as a lesson in how the Europeans can feel good about themselves for accepting someone who is not like them, as the example that being gay/transvestite/whatever is actually a good thing.
If that’s the ONLY thing that makes them all feel special than Europe was lost a long time ago.
Be sure, Conchita Wurst was a well conceived plan by the elites who are running the world, to further the propaganda to break up the family, and promote gays. Men are the ones who have always stopped the tyrants. The less men in the world, the better from their point of view.
Will the Conchita’s of the world save Europe?
“I really dream of a world where we don’t have to talk about unnecessary things like sexuality, where you’re from or who you love. This is not what it’s all about.”
Like I said….creepy.
Brussels is the home of the EU elites, who get out of their limo’s to discuss how great the EU is. But…just how long do they think they can hold on to Brussels? Or even Europe for that matter?
Nobody Wins when the facts about Islam are ignored and their plans to take over the world by sheer population growth is laughed at. In fact, many European nations are supplying the rope by which they will hang…most of the Muslims in these countries are on welfare.
This is a video worth watching.

Gay Marriage:—If the Supreme Court will make same-sex marriage a constitutional right, which would go against the Constitution. Since the beginning, it’s been up to the states to determine such matters, not the Federal Government. And, since the people of California voted on Proposition 8, it should not be overturned.
At another point Chief Justice John Roberts asked Olson whether those seeking to strike down Proposition 8 were interested only in the label “marriage,” since the state of California already grants same-sex couples almost all the legal protections and rights provided to heterosexual married couples.
What the elites want is to force churches to marry gay couples. And since the top GOP minions like Karl Rove, are now supporting it, don’t be shocked if gay marriage becomes the law of the land. But, Nobody Really Knows what’s going to happen. It’s not that gays shouldn’t marry, it that the issues should be up to the voters in the states.
The Great EU Bank Robbery: Wow…the EU thought taking money from people’s bank accounts was so easy, they decided it’s a faster and better way to steal money. Why tax when you can just reach in the cookie jar and take it all? Cyrus just wasn’t enough.
Savings accounts in Spain, Italy and other European countries will be raided if needed to preserve Europe’s single currency by propping up failing banks, a senior euro zone official has announced.
So…where ARE the rich, or the little guy for that matter… going to go to hide their money from the elites? Nobody Knows.
Obama Vacations: In the first three months of the year, members of the first family have been on three vacations, averaging a vacation a month. And now it’s being reported that the first daughters are on a spring break vacation in the Bahamas.
Gee…MOST parents would never dream of sending their kids off to a hotspot vacation without mom or dad along. But it seems, the taxpayers are the nannies on this one. The above statement is false: Obama had a vacation in Israel and Jordan where he took days off to see the sights, his life is one continual vacation day after another, with a few speeches in-between. Nobody Knows where they are going next: Disneyland?
North Korea: Nobody Knows—If the reason Obama is sending all those thousands of tanks to California is because North Korea is threatening to nuke us every single day.
North Korea has elevated its artillery and strategic missile forces to “combat-ready posture” and said it is prepared to strike targets in South Korea, Japan, Guam, Hawaii and the continental US.
In the newly released movie Olympus, ( I just saw it today) North Korea takes over the White House and captures the President with such stealth and expertise, it made our military look lame….and just ONE man saves everybody. Something that would not happen in real life.
I kept thinking that the North Koreans would LOVE this movie, since they can’t even make a decent video as good as a ten-year-old American. Leave it to American Movie producers to make them look good.
I don’t remember any President of the United States ever putting up with such a punk as Kim Jung Um, but then, that was before half our big companies were making most of their money in China.
Does that mean we will have to listen to this punk forever?
If you are a poor British retired soldier, living out your life on the Island of Cyprus, you woke up and found out that the EU, decided it was running out of money, and so, they “taxed” your savings. They just reached inside your pocket like the good elite oligarchs they are, and grabbed what they felt they could.
If you are too late getting to the bank, the banks will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday because, they have a lot of pillaging to do.
Russian citizens account for the majority of the billions of Euros held in Cypriot banks by foreign depositors, and Russian banks are heavily exposed to the island as a favored offshore centre for big business. tired-looking Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, appeared to have lost track of the calendar and wished weary reporters a “happy St Patrick’s Day” a full day early. She made no reference to a deposit levy, talking only of “burden sharing.” Several EU officials blamed Anastasiades for insisting on low contributions from uninsured deposits, hurting his country’s small savers to protect wealthy depositors, many foreigners. Under the new proposal, smaller depositors with up to €100,000 would be taxed at 3%; savers with €100,000 to €500,000 would be taxed at 10%; and those with more than €500,000 at 15%. despite all the promises, your savings are vulnerable to arbitrary confiscation.
But have heart! Those deposits could have been rendered even more worthless when the ECB cuts off its funding to Cypriot banks, a decision which would — through devaluation and insolvency — lead to depositors losing as much as 60% of their money.
Well, it’s the same old song isn’t it? “We must all share the burden.” and “It could have been so much worse.” The elites of the world, who continue to tax and steal money from the rest of us, are basically saying: Hey…we only took off your legs..it could have been worse..we could have KILLED you!
In the meantime, Japan will begin pumping huge amounts of yen into the economy, and our own Federal Reserve is pumping money too.
There seems to be more to it than simply wanting money. It’s the Russians that are going to be hurt the most…because they are sending Naval ships to the region.
Russia is helping Syria, and are sending Navel ships into the area. Simply put… they can’t get into Syria as long as this money stream is flowing through Cyprus. And the reason Cyprus is suffering…is also due to a very expensive explosion in 2011 which cost them billions:
Ruskies have at least 50 billion euros stalled in Cyprus. They have open storage on the base were 98 containers of explosives that had been seized by the United States Navy in 2009 after it intercepted a Cypriot-flagged, Russian owned vessel, the MV Monchegorsk travelling from Iran to Syria in the Red Sea. According to leaked US cables through Wiki Leaks, released in 2011, the US through Hillary Clinton exerted pressure on Cyprus to confiscate the shipment. The ship was escorted to a Cypriot port and the Cyprus Navy was given responsibility for the explosives, which it moved to the Evangelos Florakis a month later. At the time of the incident in 2011, the explosives had apparently been left in the open for over two years. The Cypriot government had declined offers from Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States to remove or dispose of the material, having feared an adverse reaction from Syria. The government had instead requested that the UN effect the removal, but claimed that its request had been rejected.
While the average American doesn’t get much news about the EU…we can only imagine how we would feel if we woke up one day…went online, and found out our “savings” had been taxed.
Obama has been looking at a way to “borrow” from our 401K’sand Pensions plans. Could our government be thinking about doing the same thing?
After Obamacare, we’d be foolish not to think so.
Look out America…they are going to welcome with open arms MILLIONS of illegal immigrants onto the welfare rolls. This of course, will put millions more people out of work here in America, and we’ll be right up there with the high unemployment of the EU.
But…then again…that seems to be the plan.
It’s been a while since I posted my favorite British conservative, and so..with his usual perfection, here’s Daniel Hannan, explaining so very clearly…the problem of “running out of money.”
I searched all over this week for someone to post, in order to deliver an uplifting man or woman of the week, and I couldn’t find anyone who says so much in such little time as Daniel Hannan.
Truly, what in the world good happened this week in the news? The highlight was San Diego got to see 15 seconds of spectacular fireworks because of some computer disk malfuction. And since we were devoid of any kind of good news last week, (Fires, electric outages, storms, etc.) they had to spin a big incredible &$^% up, as being…a fun thing! So what if thousands of people sat for hours in traffic hoping for a show? Wasn’t that cool they said?
We ARE amazing.
Nobody hopes our computers on our nuclear subs don’t do that trick.
Here Daniel makes the point that the EU is discussing women and homosexual rights, while the great EU Titanic ship is sinking. Our Congress is discussing boxing rules among all things. And then Daneil makes his on abservation as to why he thinks ‘people’ do the absurd.
Daniel is a one-man inspiration every time he speaks. I don’t think this will be the last time he fills my Nobody’s Fool slot.
If I end the week with another one of my favorite Brits! Nigel is not as eloquent as Daniel, but his attacks are much more fun. Americans should be paying close attention to what is happening in Europe…the EU is wiping out democracy. And Nigel lets them have it both guns blaring.
Time Magazine’s “man of the year” was the “protester.” If you ask this Nobody, it should have been Daniel Hannan.
In the finest British traditions of Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill, Daniel is fast becoming “The Man of the Decade.”
You don’t have to know anything about what is going on in Europe not to appreciate the points he makes.
Our politicians tell us pretty much the same thing. FU.

Nobody Gets Email
Just when you think our government can’t get any worse, we must wonder about what’s happening in the EU. Not only did they hire 21 of their hot-shot professors to do a study about water, (who obviously went to college in Cuba) they have now decided that water does not hydrate you. And if you sell water and put that on your bottle label, you can be fined and put in jail.
Just about every man, woman, and elephant on this planet knows that you can live without food for over three weeks, but if you go without water for over 4 days, you will probably die. So, I suggest that all the EU “Technocrats” who want to kick out all nationally elected leaders, (which they did with Italy and Greece) and put themselves in charge…should never get another drop of soda, water, beer, wine, ..in fact anything of the sort.
If water even touches their lips…put them in jail.
Here we see a great bashing of the dweeby idiots, by Britain’s Nigel Farage. He really went after the whole fascist lot of them. Nobody Wishes our “republican” leaders would stand up and shout like this man.
We could use some of that here.
(Thanks to amfortas.)
After I was introduced to this man by my reader amfortas, I’ve become transfixed by his every speech. Our Americans leaders do not even come near someone of this intelligence.
If you have never heard this guy talk, he is talking about the absurdity of trying to erase borders by force…he is talking about Europe and it’s problems right now, but everything he says pertains to us too. We are divided into different classes…blacks, Hispanics, whites, Asians…and it’s our diversity that gives the world it’s creativity. Take away that uniqueness and you have …chaos. Let the Germans be Germans, and the Greeks be Greek, and the Americans stay Americans.
Our pot no longer melts.
Listen, learn…and enjoy.
(Mighty Mouse…is on the waaaaaaaay!!)
