How Germany Is Being Erased

Liberal immigration policies, explosive reproduction rates, polygamy, and welfare. These are the tools Muslim colonists are using to erase Germany:

How long will Germany be able to carry the rest of the European Union on its back economically when the country consists mostly of Third Worlders on welfare?

The USA isn’t the only Western country that is committing suicide.

How Many Rounds Are Enough?

MB Studio Productions demonstrates what can happen to you and your family if you let tyrannical bureaucrats determine how many rounds you “need” in a magazine:

In a similar real life situation, Melinda Herman bluffed home invader Paul Ali Slater into leaving herself and her children alone with an empty gun after she had shot him five times. The story would have had a very different ending if Slater had brought along friends.

Obama Tells College Grads Not to Worry About Tyranny

Someone who didn’t have designs on the battered remnants of our liberty wouldn’t have said this at an Ohio State commencement address yesterday:

“We the people chose to do these things together. Because we know this country cannot accomplish great things if we pursue nothing greater than our own individual ambition.

“Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

“We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us, it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government.”

Note that he conflates the government with the people it governs, despite their interests being diametrically opposite in many respects. What the government does, we all do, as a single Borg. This is oligarchical collectivism, the ideology of the tyrants Obama doesn’t want us to worry about.

Paul Ryan Backs Adoption by Homosexuals

There aren’t many you can vote for in clear conscience. Scratch Paul Ryan off the list:

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), the 2012 Republican vice presidential candidate, used to oppose adoption of children by homosexuals but now says it is okay for gays to adopt kids and that he would vote to support such a policy.

The Catholic faith, which Ryan professes, teaches that such adoptions “are contrary to the divine plan” of God and Pope Francis has said that gay adoption is a form of discrimination against children.

Apparently Ryan answers to a higher god — namely, media-driven opinion polls. That god doesn’t mind if children are collected by deviant “couples” as sex toys, as is already happening (see here and here for appalling examples).

On a tip from G. Fox.

David Sirota Denounces Cheeseburgers on Behalf of the Planet

Liberal columnist David Sirota’s high hopes that the Boston Marathon bombers would turn out to be normal Americans rather than Muslims were dashed. Now he has a new hope: that the planet can be saved by the prevention of eating cheeseburgers. It is never easy to tell with elite intellectuals, but he seems to be serious:

Sirota has turned his sights to changing the climate by changing America’s diet. According to Sirota’s May 2 column, “the fastest way to reduce climate change” simply “requires us all to eat fewer animal products.” In case that wasn’t sufficiently clear, he added that “we are incinerating the planet and dooming future generations simply because too many of us like to eat cheeseburgers.” Sirota’s article on the left-wing site Salon included a photo of what appeared to be a bacon cheeseburger with an egg on top of it.

“That’s right; essentially, if every fourth time someone craved, say, beef, chicken or cow milk they instead opted for a veggie burger, a bean burrito or water, we have a chance to halt the emergency,” he added.

Apparently Sirotten missed the memo about “the emergency” having halted on its own 16 years ago. But even he is aware that not everyone will trade food for birdseed burgers on his command.

“I’m sure some conservatives will read this column and send me email smugly pledging to eat even more meat than they already do, just to make some incoherent point about freedom.”

Inevitably, government force will need to be employed. After all, our “ecological survival” is at stake.

Guffaw-Inducing Design for ChiCom MiniTrue

Communist China’s version of the Ministry of Truth is the People’s Daily, a government mouthpiece only slightly less prone to collectivist statism than the New York Times. Its new building in Beijing would suit the Times perfectly:

Chinese authorities have rushed to censor the country’s microblogging site, Sina Weibo, after users started mocking a picture of the new Beijing headquarters of the People’s Daily newspaper, which resembles a giant penis.

A search on Sina Weibo for “People’s Daily” and “building” results in a message that says the keywords have been blocked “in accordance with relevant laws, regulations and policies, search results cannot be displayed”.

The design couldn’t be more appropriate.

The newspaper itself has been called “Raping People Daily” by Chinese netizens for “chronically misleading the people with false reports”, according to blog Hug China.

Please, no jokes about the word dictatorship.

You Need to Spend Money to Waste Money

In order to spend wastefully to the point of collapsing our economic system, the government uses our money to enable still more spending. For example,

A Washington group is criticizing the Senate immigration bill because it allows for up to $150 million for organizations to advertise citizenship opportunities and to help illegal immigrants sign up to become citizens.

The nonpartisan Center for Immigration Services calls the money “slush funds” and earlier this week cited several concerns — particularly that the money can go to the same groups that helped craft the legislation and that the spending appears to have no cap or oversight.

Groups that helped write the amnesty bill include the ultra-left La Raza and Casa de Maryland. Both are conspicuous for their opposition to the interests of the average American.

The money is divided into two parts. The first is $100 million in grants to public and private nonprofit groups for programs that help people apply for provisional immigrant status, which includes assistance with completing applications and gathering proof of identification.

The other part is $50 million for additional assistance that includes legal help and public-awareness campaigns that tell illegal immigrants about the “eligibility and benefits of registered immigration status.”

That $150 million is only the beginning…

Though the bill guidelines are specific regarding amounts and which types of groups are eligible, the Center for Immigration Services is also concerned about a provision that leaves open the possibility of addition taxpayer funding and another that says the money can be spent on “any other assistance” considered “useful or necessary.”

The beauty of it, from a Cloward-Piven point of view, is that the more illegals they make legal, the bigger the drain on the economy through welfare. Jim DeMint estimates that the Gang of Eight Quislings’ amnesty bill would “cost Americans trillions of dollars.” That is, it would be a death blow not only demographically, but economically.

America’s enemies are on the verge of erasing the country.

Parts of Brooklyn Too Anarchic for Mail Delivery

While the Mayor of New York is waging jihad against trans fats, cigarettes, salt, soda, firearms, baby formula, Styrofoam, and even earbuds, who is seeing to the legitimate functions of municipal government, such as keeping people safe from crime? A mailman would probably answer, no one:

Postmen are too scared to deliver letters and packages to one of Brooklyn’s most crime-ravaged neighborhoods, a US Postal Service worker told The Post yesterday.

“The neighborhood is bad,” the worker said outside the Brownsville Station Post Office on Bristol Street. “I wouldn’t want to go into those buildings.”

Brownsville resident Yolanda Matthews gripes that she has missed checks from the government due to the government’s unreliable mail service, and implies that discrimination is to blame.

Here’s an idea for Yolanda: Send an anonymous tip to the Mayor’s office that locals are drinking Big Gulps and pouring salt on their food. Nanny Bloomberg will flood the area with law enforcement in no time.

On tips from Sean C and Bob Roberts.

Moonbat Tech: L’Uritonnoir

Technology has come a long way since Woodstock. Instead of hippies peeing on the ground or each other’s legs, now they can save the planet by peeing on bales of hay — thanks to the revolutionary new L’Uritonnoir:

The name derives from the French words “urinnoir,” meaning urinal, and “entonnoir,” meaning funnel; and that’s basically what they are. By itself, a single Uritonnoir looks like a wide funnel with a tapered spike on the end and is either pre-made from stainless steel or folded together from a flat polypropylene sheet.

The simple urinals are designed for easy setup using a bale of hay as a stand. The spike on the end just needs to be inserted into the hay at a comfortable height and then secured with a strap that wraps around the entire bale. Depending on the size of the bale, you can add as many Uritonnoirs as you need.

The nitrogen in the urine reacts with the carbon in the straw to speed up the decomposition process, reducing an entire bale to fertilizer in 6-12 months. And since festivals go hand-in-hand with beer drinking, there’s bound to be plenty of “nitrogen” to go around. As a bonus, festival organizers can opt to have graphics displaying their brand, paid advertising, or other messages silkscreened onto them.

They just can’t keep capitalism down. When socialists try to kill it with enviromoonbattery, entrepreneurs quickly learn to make a buck off their stupidity.

On a tip from Air2air.
