How to stop the pirates...

It's fairly easy. Put secretly a few dozen marines armed with machine guns, rocket launches and the like on each civil ship that passes by Somalia. If the ship is stopped by pirates - the marines should fire at will to sink the pirate ships. Any pirate who is caught is publicly hanged - as the marine law prescribes.

It's pretty simple, really. But I doubt it will be implemented. It's much more fun to send president Obama with a voyage to Africa, so he could personally apologize to all Africans for American sins. After all, this is how you stop piracy - by apologizing to everyone.

Liberals are not very bright...

I was laughing out loud after reading this ludicrous passage from some left-wing group, which is promoting the abolishment of the Second Amendment. Here is the quote:
"Persons who own a gun and who engage in abuse of intimate partners such as a spouse are more likely to use a gun to threaten their intimate partner."
The link is Here.

What the fuck does this mean? That people who don't own a gun, and who do not abuse their spouses are less likely to use guns to threaten their partners than the people who have guns and who abuse their spouses? Just exactly how stupid were people who wrote this triviality?!

Stocks are rising - right on cue...

I remember the former Russian Prime-Minister, Egor Gaidar explaining back in the 90ies to his leftie liberal opponents (former communist apparatchiks) in the Duma that printing money is bad for the economy. While there is some initial euphoria after the money influx, after 6-9 months the inflation catches up, and all the results of the stimulus are gone, and the people are saddled with even more discombobulated economy, mal-investment and high unemployment. In short, things got worse, not better.

Lets now examine the United State. Bush and his liberal cohorts in Congress and Senate pushed a lot of money in late summer, and fall. You surely remember the stimulus checks, money for the banks, the whole nine yards. Trillions of dollars left the government purse and were injected into the economy. It's April now, and the stocks started an unexplainable rise, while unemployment is going up. If you know economic theory - there is nothing puzzling in this situation. Wait for the inflation to hit the stores pretty soon now. It will become ugly. Will it be worse than 10% inflation? It most likely will - since don't forget that Obama makes Bush look like a fiscal ultra-conservative. It will be a long and sustained inflation. Should we expect price controls? Very plausible from this administration.

The New World Order is here - same as Old Europe.
