The (translated) French Economy Quote of the Day
Print × Imprimerthe dissident frogman • Monday, March 31, 2008 · 1005 zulu time.pdf

Hey, just because it didn't work for the last 40 years doesn't mean we should stop trying.

There are but a few economists not from the Marx / Keynes school of thought in this country:
Liberal1 countries invented the « flat tax » ; we invented the « full tax »
French economist Jean-Louis Caccomo, lamenting on the appalling state of Gallic economic knowledge and understanding, the resulting ambient stupidity and French panic over the slowing down of the U.S. economy, and the typical deadly and counterproductive measures to be expected, once again, from the French "authorities" in yet another professed attempt to "shield" the moribund French economy from the shockwaves of global recession: none of the critically needed reforms of the humungous State machine, even more public spending and, obligatory corollary, more taxes.

I'm roughly of the same age as J.L. Caccomo, and like him I've heard about the country's constant economic crisis, massive and ever growing unemployment rates on par with public spending and taxation, and therefore "requiring" a plethora of government "plans" measures and intervention that only make things worse, ever since I was old enough to understand articulate language.

Over these decades, and among the "people in charge", virtually nobody in France figured what "those stupid Americans" have known for some time: that the government can't be the solution to our problems, considering it is the problem.

Predictably — and as predicted here — Sarkozy is not different at all, and has already warned that, quote, « the coffers (sic) were empty » implying that, you know, very sorry and all, but the promised tax relief will have to be "postponed" — to provide some relief to the lavish lifestyle of the French State and sustainable opportunities for the creative minds of French technocrat-taxmen. Some eminent members of his government followed up, and start making the buzzing noise of tax raise, so common under these tropics ; Sarkozy himself set the example by devising a tax on Internet access to make for the loss of revenue in his plan of banning advertising on all state owned TV channels2.

As noted by J.L. Caccomo — who was initially cautiously hopeful about the Super Sarko, but then nobody's perfect — even the Socialists agree about the "ineluctability of tax raise" in France's immediate future. Socialists always do.

Confronted to that pack of mobsters and racketeers, I submit that in France tax evasion is not just an act of civil disobedience but a true civic duty3.

In the name of Al (Ah!) the Most Beneficent, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful, the Most Wholly Super Groovy.


Of all the abysmal absurdities the Global Warming Cultists — and the Environmentalist movement at large — can claim credit for, I believe the theory of the Farting Cattle of the Apocalypse, (AKA "Livestock's long shadow", as "exposed" by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation) wins by a short hand over my former favorite absurd (sub)urban myth, that of the Sudanese Muslims Penis Melting Handshake from the Seventh Circle of Hell.

The solid third would of course be the urban friends and saviors of nature who switch off their Ikea® designed chandeliers and sit in the dark of their fancy New-York, London, Melbourne or Paris flats, as an involuntary laughable guilt offering in order to persuade the planet to keep spinning at least 60 minutes more on Earth Hour.

Through chants and prayer, one can imagine.

Verily, Al is All, Brothers and Sisters — and now is the time for the music video.

Lyrics included.

Of Socialism and Socialists
Print × Imprimerthe dissident frogman • Thursday, March 27, 2008 · 1342 zulu time.pdf

What part of 'National-Socialism' don't you understand?

Just because more than half a century of Socialist-Communist propaganda tried to erase that most inconvenient truth, here's a detailed essay to keep as a good pointer for the next moron who will tell you that Nazism was a right-wing ideology: Hitler was a Socialist.

Oh, and Al Gore's big daddy too:
Here's a quote which may sound very familiar -- at least in part. "We recognise that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind's own destruction and to the death of nations. "Only through a re-integration of humanity into the whole of nature can our people be made stronger . .

"This striving toward connectedness with the totality of life, with nature itself, a nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the true essence of National Socialist thought."

That was Ernst Lehmann, a leading biologist under the Nazi regime, in 1934, and he wasn't alone. Hitler, for one, was an avid vegetarian and green, addicted to homoepathic (sic) cures. His regime sponsored the creation of organic farming, and SS leader Heinrich Himmler even grew herbs on his own organic farm with which to treat his beloved troops.

HITLER also banned medical experiments on animals, but not, as we know to our grief, on Jewish children. And he created many national parks, particularly for Germany's "sacred" forests.

(...)

The Nazis also absorbed the German Youth Movement, the Wandervogel, which talked of our mystical relationship with the earth. Peter Staudenmaier, (...) says it was for the Wandervogel that the philosopher Ludwig Klages wrote his influential essay Man and Earth in 1913.

In it, Klages warned of the growing extinction of species, the destruction of forests, the genocide of aboriginal peoples, the disruption of the ecosystem and the killing of whales. People were losing their relationship with nature, he warned.

Heard all that recently? I'm not surprised. This essay by this notorious anti-Semite was republished in 1980 to mark the birth of the German Greens -- the party that inspired the creation of our own Greens party.

Its message is much as Hitler's own in Mein Kampf: "When people attempt to rebel against the iron logic of nature, they come into conflict with the very same principles to which they owe their existence as human beings. Their actions against nature must lead to their own downfall."

Why does this matter now? Because we must learn that people who want animals to be treated like humans really want humans to be treated like animals.
The paternity and affinities of both Socialists and Environmentalists is indeed striking — then again, things are much clearer when you look at ideas and issues rather than just people and bogeymen.

An Hymn to the Greater Glory of Gore, (AL-leluia)
Print × Imprimerthe dissident frogman • Wednesday, March 26, 2008 · 1151 zulu time.pdf

"Hundreds of millions of people will soon perish in smog disasters in New York and Los Angeles (...) The oceans will die of DDT poisoning by 1979 (...) The U.S. life expectancy will drop to 42 years by 1980 due to cancer epidemics." Green Guru Paul Ehrlich in Ramparts, 1979 - author of the ludicrous and disproven "Population Bomb" prediction.

"(Kyoto is) the first component of an authentic global governance." Jacques Chirac French president, Sixth Conference of Parties to Kyoto, 2000.


The "evidences" of warming keep falling one after the other, so much so that the "consensus", touted by Al Gore and the Global Warming Church of the End Is Nigh (Really Soon Now) has fully revealed itself as a political rather than scientific one.

On science's side, the facts stubbornly refuse to add up even though they pile up (no surprise, considering the amount of taxpayer money wasted on this climatic chimera worldwide), and nearly every day brings the news of defections among the ranks of the "scientific" community:

One Cooler Head

Until his Damascus moment, Miklos Zagoni, a physicist and environmental researcher, had been touted as his nation's "most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocol." But then this activist saw the work of a fellow Hungarian scientist. His world was rocked.

(...)

Ferenc Miskolczi, an atmospheric physicist at NASA's Langley Research Center with three decades of experience, had found that researchers have been repeating a mistake when calculating the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on temperatures. (...) As has been noted elsewhere, Miskolczi's theory could explain why the warming that models have been predicting for decades has never materialized.

No "denial" and a total consensus on the political front however. From Al Gore to Nicolas Sarkozy via Tony Blair (who is quickly blowing off, Katrina-style, whatever respect I had left for him after his righteous stance on Iraq), the worst and the vilest power-hungry politicos (mostly) of the Western world are seizing the Climate Change non-issue as their dream opportunity to tighten their hold on the people, and move forward their global government agenda.

Still, I suspect they will soon run into a bit of trouble, and I also suspect they know it, which is why they're acting as if the scientific question was settled once and for all. They need to move to the next phase (regulating, taxing, cashing in while the rest of us grows poorer and ends up at the mercy of their promises of scarce and targeted "redistribution" of the resources they took from us in the first place - in short, what any respectable politician does best), for if they were to rely on the people's acknowledgement of the threat and approval of the harsh Measures That Must Be Taken To Save The World, they face the unsolvable great dilemma that comes with the Global Warming Prophecy1:

Either you try to keep it reasonably "real" and announce the End Of The World in a few centuries — in which case most people won't care much about it, or at least not enough to have the humility to live whatever remains of their existence (and their children's) in misery for the sake of whatever upcoming generations of asswipes who might not even have the decency to be grateful (you know how these unborn people are) — or you try to boost your register on the Scare Scale by promising a steady rise of temperatures and water levels culminating in The Ultimate Drought and The Final Flood at this very date next year, 10:34 AM sharp.

Then of course, people will expect at the very least a lovely springtime — looking exactly like a Summer vacation in the Bahamas, even for those of us who live in Aberdeen. I mean a sign, anything, that will make Global Warming visible and self-evident in their daily lives, otherwise they will simply dismiss the whole thing as horse manure2. That is, incidentally, the reason #1 why Al Gore keeps going about the Arctic ice melting in Summer, while conveniently not mentioning the Antarctic growing colder.

Thus, having blown both cold and hot air in less than a lifetime (they played the global-cooling-new-ice-age-a coming swan song in the mid-70s3) the Environmental Brown Bermudas4 have hardly any credibility left.

Seeing that science fails them5, and save from the full blown authoritarian method (say, a coup à la Sarkozy: "say 'No' to the European Constitution, and I'll shove my Lisbon Treaty up your wazoo without questions"), the only option left for the Green (and greenish) Left — if they ever care(d) to convince — is plain mystical faith.

Not, mind you, the kind of faith that lights Mankind's road from primal mud to a superior ideal (usually represented as "God") through moral betterment and individual achievements, equipped with such tools as abstract thinking, scientific query and the conscience of one's own freewill in every matter along the way — the best examples of which being the Christian and Judaic faiths that steadily lead and accompanied the West on an upward path of progress6, a fact this agnostic readily acknowledges.


"An inconvenient truth: emoting ham actors and dowdy PowerPoint presentations galore."

No, we're talking about blind irrational beliefs that confine the individual into primeval fear of the unknown — and the unpredictable — resulting in panicked submission to the nearest witch doctor, who will then further establish his hold on the herd by forbidding scientific query or replacing it with a semi-scientifically sounding mixture of emoting ham actors, dark arts oracles, tacky computer graphics and dowdy PowerPoint presentations.

Behold the Cult of Climate Change.

Behold its Grand Guru Gore.

Now I confess a great deal of confusion at the sight of seemingly smart people (indeed, that excludes politicians and "activists": I'm talking about mainstream, normal folk here) falling for the Global Climate Warming Change scam. While many people kept their cool7 so far, a great deal watched the traveling medicine show, trusted the quacks and bought the snake oil, no question asked.

Predictably, they won't even look into the issue by themselves but aggregated with the herd of believers, simply adding their voice to the psalmodial chant of "Oh my Gore, is it getting hot down here!"

I suppose some of these people could be saved before the cultists start passing the Kool Aid around.

Then again, they've bought all the scams, all the time (population bomb, global cooling, acid rains and deforestation, air pollution, recycling waste, species genocide, et al) and they'll probably keep doing it.

Plus, I'm Cynic the Sarcastic, not some silly self-proclaimed Savior.

So I wrote a song instead, and aptly titled it "Al is All". It's more of an hymn really, in order to keep people blinded, entertained and more importantly inspired while the Gore, Sarkozy and Blair of this world lead the Church of Global Warming to its ultimate destination.

Quote “The Jewish community is becoming a ghetto”
Print × Imprimerthe dissident frogman • Tuesday, March 18, 2008 · 2123 zulu time.pdf

Then again, this is Europe.

From France — the country that, according to its former president Jacques Chirac just a few years ago, is not anti-Semite — comes more signs of what is definitely reading as "a general shift, not a passing crisis":
Jews Fleeing Paris Suburbs
(...)
Over a period of just three years, roughly half the Jewish families in Villepinte have left. Some have gone to other suburbs or Paris neighborhoods considered safer for Jews; a few have left the country.

Of 300 families three years ago, only 150 remain today, community president Charly Hannoun estimates.

The reason, he says, is anti-Semitism.

(...)

All of France is experiencing the problem, says University of Paris sociologist Shmuel Trigano, the author of "The Future of the Jews in France."

"It is a general shift, not a passing crisis," Trigano says. "The Jewish community is becoming a ghetto. It is no longer a community of choice but a community of necessity. In a democracy that shouldn't happen."
anti-Semitism indeed, and unsurprisingly in large part from the people who brought you World War III1:
(...) many Sephardic families make a direct comparison between this migration and their families’ flights from North Africa some 40 years ago.

"They chased us from Algeria and they followed us here," Robert Sebbane, 81, says of the North African Muslims responsible for much of France’s anti-Jewish crime.
It's important to keep in mind that this is part of the global Islamic strategy, and Jews are targeted first simply because… They always are2. But the Religion of Peace has plans for the rest of us, in what some already call Eurabia, don't worry.

Now is the appropriate time to quote Pastor Martin Niemöller I suppose. You know, "First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I wasn't a Jew...

All is not lost however, and for some of them at least, it seems that French Islamic Fascism will turn to be a blessing in disguise:
In 2002 Hannoun's son, Olivie, 40, moved with his family to Miami from France because of anti-Semitism.

Olivie Hannoun says he misses a lot about home, but his three children have become accustomed to life in the United States.

"They can't understand that it can be difficult to be a Jew elsewhere,” Hannoun says. “They don't know what that is, which is exactly what I wanted.”
Every now and then I stumble on the words of the average U.S. Lefty who think s/he's being smart and will shame and infuriate the conservatives — re the immigration issue — by asking "Hey, what happened to 'Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore...' ?"

Well here they are, smartass.

Oh, and a final disclaimer


A full (Jewish) family of my own friends took the flight to rural Western France from a Western Paris suburbs a few months ago, choosing nearly 4 hours of daily commuting over Life in the Gallic Caliphate. Granted, that's just circumstantial evidence, but hey...
