Uncivil Rights

A BLOG rife with wit, sarcasm, and the endless joy which comes from taunting the socialistic and unpatriotic liberal left. Logical thoughts and musings ONLY need reply...unless you're really, really funny. You have the Uncivil Right to be an IDIOT. "Give me LIBERTY, or give me DEATH!"

In the News

From the New York Times: "Iraqi Police Use Kidnappers' Videos to Fight Crime", does anyone other than liberals see anything wrong with this? What goes around, comes around. "In one scene, the videotape shows three kidnappers with guns and a knife, preparing to behead a helpless man who is gagged and kneeling at their feet.
In the next, it is one of the kidnappers who is in detention, his eyes wide with fear, his lips trembling, as he speaks to his interrogators.
"How do I say this?" says the kidnapper, identified as an Egyptian named Abdel-Qadir Mahmoud, holding back tears. "I am sorry for everything I have done."

From the Independent On-Line: "
Dutch unveil new ploy to tackle immigrant issue: a culture exam". "Would-be immigrants into the Netherlands are to face an exam testing their knowledge of everything from Dutch language and history to its laws on topless sunbathing before they can take up residence."

Can you imagine the uproar if someone here in America proposed this? The screams of racisim, nationalism, and ethnocentrism from the liberals would be deafening. I wonder what type of questions we might ask...if anyone has suggestions, feel free to post a comment.

From the New York Times: "
Social Security Poker: It's Time for Liberals to Ante Up". He was making sense until this, "But what if we paid for Social Security reform by keeping the inheritance tax? Or by undoing Mr. Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans? Rescuing Social Security strikes me as a good use for that money - while paying for it with debt would not secure our children's future, but mortgage it." So he is suggesting TAKING wealth from those that have it and give that wealth to those that don't, so they can build wealth...sounds like income re-distribution to me, socialism. Punish the successful because some in this country are not successful. I prefer my Sponsorship program (see post below).

And finally, no post is complete without attacking the socialists.

From FAZ.NET C0744F8695B3E0BE5A30A620/Doc~EB97C00F0846343A281A19C7A50561B3D~ATpl~Ecommon~Scontent.html">FAZ.NET: "
German unemployment tops five million". "Official unemployment rose to above five million in January, the highest level since the Second World War." And how is the government handling this? "In January, the government introduced a new form of long-term unemployment benefits for welfare recipients and the long-term jobless. The Federal Labor Office on Tuesday said that 4.09 million Germans had signed up for this new assistance, well above government projections. Long-term jobless aid kicks in after regular benefits from unemployment insurance run out." It pays not to work, thank GOD for socialism.

From Expatica: "
French gear up for marches against 35-hour week reform". OK, the French wanted to cut unemployment numbers, so with the help of labor, they devised a policy to cut the number of hours of work per week. What does this do? It means companies had to hire more people to maintain the level of productivity. What an INGENIUS idea to cut unemployment. What this program actually did was to reduce productivity and increase unemployment. This is what happens when government gets involved in labor issues and when labor becomes involved in government policy-making.

So now reform is needed. What does labor think? "However union leaders and opposition Socialist party (PS) politicians accuse the government of trying to turn back the clock, and jeopardising social progress via an ideological obsession with labour market flexibility." HOW DARE MARKET FLEXIBILITY JEOPARDIZE SOCIAL PROGRESS! Good luck to the French.
