A move to Sweden or the Czech Republic may be in order


Because it's a Road to Hell, here in the land of sweet-talk-with-Barry, the Lightworker, and anyone who's lived through that shit before ought to know, as the Czech Premeir has.

It also appears that Sweden is refusing to bail out Saab too.

And both countries are completely correct about how to deal with this mess. Quit trying to bandage the arterial bleeding. Let the leeches and unfit die the death they deserve. Move on. Quit dragging the rest of the country, and countless generations to come, down into that quagmire that this monumental monetization of debt is about to bring.

Besides, if we are talking about cars, Sweden still has Volvo, owned by Ford...for now. And the Czechs have Skoda, which are built with VW engines and drivelines. The Octavia RS is a pretty decent performer. Understated and cool, I think. My wife's family is only about a 2 hour drive from the Czech border too, but my Schwabische sucks.

Better brush up.

The Czechs have lived through all manner of horrors, and recently. It is still fresh in the minds of the people.

Unfortunately our population obviously doesn't understand or care about history. It is easy to be that way when you have had it good for your entire life, and are oblivious to what has come before you I guess.

Unfortunately it seems like our current path will refresh everyone's memory soon.

"Unfortunately it seems like our current path will refresh everyone's memory soon."

I have just a couple of thoughts on this bit.

First, you are all too correct about this "freshening," it's just a matter of how hard it's all gonna go down, and secondly, the crowds will simply be cheering its arrival, like some rock concert groupies throwing their underwear at the stage.

Seriously, the arrival of the Lightworker has his minions simply orgasmic with the power play currently afoot. He can do no wrong in their estimation.

The severity of the necessary response is being seriously considered by a bunch of people right now, which proves two things: One, this isn't a bunch of kook-headed paranoia, it's very real, and two, the response will be messy.

See Billy Beck's short posit on Matthew Yglesias's piece on's site. Billy sez about the overt theft involved in Yglesias' scheme:

"What if Yglesias set out to effect this program on his own powers of conviction, and someone shot his fucking useless head off for being a thief the first time he tried it?"

Seriously, that's talk I don't hear from too many people, but it's getting more frequent, and certainly louder, these days. The real observations of the current, devolving situation would suggest to me that other folks are waking up to the reality that freedom is increasingly under fire from the usual suspects, and we are in for a fight to the death to save it, if only for ourselves.

Of course, Billy is right about it all. It's going to get bloody, and in almost precisely the manner he is describing, there.

Interesting times.
