A spiffing idea

I’ve just had a spiffing idea. One that will help unite us Europeans around a common ideal. And it’s this: A contest in which every European country enters a song and all other European countries vote to elect a winner.  This concept is loosely based on the Eurovision Song Contest, recently held in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Not sure if you saw it, but it was a gripping affair.  Tanzania swept into the lead in the early voting but fell away to be replaced by dark horses Saudi Arabia, featuring a female vocal group clad entirely in black burkas. The remainder of the contest was then a nip and tuck affair as the lead swung wildly between Indonesia and Burkino Fasso. But, in a breathtaking finish, the Democratic Republic of the Congo came from nowhere to finish as Champions of Europe with just one point to spare.

This prompted wild celebrations in Kinshasa which unfortunately spilled out of hand, resulting in at least 3,000 deaths.  This surely gives the organisers some headaches as they plan for next year’s event in that location. And what, you may ask, of North Korea, the runaway pre-contest favourites? They inexplicably finished close to bottom of the poll. Chung Hee Moon, their clearly distraught Culture Minister, admitted that he was grievously disappointed.  But, brightening up, he added ‘everyone associated with the entry has been executed so we believe this will ensure a top-class entry for next year.’

Well, what do you think?  Am I on to something?

Nice one Savant! I was thinking the same thing last week. I believe Morocco is now the next 'European' Country to enter.

Off topic, but, has anyone ever considered the sheer waste of materials generated by war?

Look at these.

It's the Kharkov armor repair facility in Ukraine

Have to admit, though, one of those would be very very handy for Auckland's rush-hour.

I saw this on irateirishman tonight, and shows an “elected” member of congress giving a speech about.., well, about what, I don’t know and I am not sure she does either. I think UN once said that the film Idiocracy was a documentary; this is obviously salvaged from the floor.

That's why in the old Soviet Union they used to call the military the 'metal eaters'

Actually, yes, the jews figured out long ago that war profits trumped all other commerce.

That's part of how we got the vietnam war-'the pentagon papers'explain.

there's lots more but that's a start

or read' war is a racket' by a 2 time medal of honor winner. He knew war was about making corporate profits selling shoes.

Those wonderful, vibrant, inclusive Europeans! I hear China's delegation next year is over 30 million strong, mostly for security, as the event will be staged in London! I guess they're really serious about winning huh?

Heraclitus said...

Joking aside, I think Savant hits on a fundamental strategic mistake of the 'European Project'. They went too wide too fast. Even bringing in Rumania and Bulgaria was a mistake. Now we're all paying for it.

Heraclitus: When Romania joined the E.U their crime rates went down.Why?Because all their riff raff are over here.

This post cracked me up Sav. You're really a great writer and, were you to betray your convictions, would be a star on the MSM.

Eamon Bejayzuz said...

Heraclitus makes an interesting observation re crime rates in Romania. While his observation is valid it may require a little fleshing out. In Romania the Gypsies---an entirely alien presence there; they came from India and live now among a Latin people---account for crime figures vastly greater than their number in the population would suggest. They are referred to as Roma, leading to a confusion of identities that occasions actual Romanians no end of chagrin.Do you all remember the darling of the media here, Mary Robinson, she who treated the Presidency as though it were a summer job at McDonalds, to be jacked in the moment something better showed up? Do you remember her invite to all the world to "come dance with her in Ireland"? Can you envisage a police chief in Timisoara or somesuch, hearing this? Are we surprised to learn that down he goes to the Gypsy camp from whence come 90% of his headaches, and saying "Listen, Gyppo, don't let the sun go down on you today; go dance with Mary in Ireland; they are all fools over there, they know nothing about you; there's an idiot, Vincent Brown, over there who will do everything to see to it that you get in and can steal all around you; by sundown Gyppo, Ok". Heraclitus, actual Romanians are ok in themselves, no worse than any other East European people. We have admitted to this country three of the least desirable types anywhere, namely; Black Africans; militant Islamics; and that abiding social pest, Gypsies, all three of whom are granted precedence over all better types and especially over the native Irish.

Thanks Lemmy! Cheers!

Thor said...

Eamon, you're 100% correct about Romanians. They are fine people and get totally pissed off that they equated with gypsies. Who, as you say, are invaders from Indian sub-continent.

Nice one Lemmy.Good luck against the French foreign legion tomorrow.

Eamon,Didn't they try this with prots in Belfast? The crime statstics rose by something like 800% (needless to say this wasn't quoted in the msm). The boys of the Shankill seemed to take exception to this and the Roma were removed PDQ.

Please forgive the O/T post, Savant, but you know me by now.

Every now and then, the question pops into the head:- "A member of the tribe has just made me a business offer I can't resist. Can I trust him?"

Short answer? No.

Go here:-

http://www.citizenfitz09.blogspot.co.nz/

Scroll down to:- Swindler's List Update and read about the shining, innate honesty of the Red Sea Pedestrian. Here a few lulus as an example ... All rabbis.

Rabbi Levy Izhak Rosenbaum... arrested with five other rabbis as part of a massive FBI sting (Operation BidRig) after being caught on tape offering to sell a kidney for $160,000 USD. "I am what you call a matchmaker," Rosenbaum told an FBI informant trying to broker a deal. Witnesses described Rosenbaum, 58, as a “thug” who pulled a gun on one reluctant seller, telling him, “You’re here. A deal is a deal. Now, you’ll give us a kidney or you’ll never go home.” Federal prosecutors said the investigation initially focused on a money laundering network that operated between Brooklyn, N.Y.; Deal, N.J.; and Israel. The network is alleged to have laundered tens of millions of dollars through Jewish charities controlled by rabbis in New York and New Jersey.

Arrested along with Rosenbaum were:

•Eliahu Ben Haim... a rabbi at a synagogue in Deal, N.J., charged with money laundering.
•Saul Kassin... the chief rabbi of a synagogue in Brooklyn, charged with money laundering.
•Edmund Nahum... the principal rabbi of a synagogue in Deal, charged with money laundering.
•Mordechai Fish... a rabbi at a synagogue in Brooklyn, charged with money laundering of proceeds derived from criminal activity.
•Albert Schwartz, brother of Rabbi Fish and also a rabbi, was charged as well.


But, but, but ... If you can't trust rabbis, who can you trust?

Quite.

Read the rest. You will find scams and fraudsters here who make Bernie Madoff look like a small-time nigger shoplifting in a seven-eleven.

My Italian grandfather always said that the jews were the real gangsters in America and used their media power to project it on to the Italians.

Xavi Mayer Lansky returned "home" to Israel and to Tel Aviv where the land was alloted by lottery so that nobody could gain valuable tracts on the basis of who they knew as all were equal in that greta modern state of Israel. Lansky and pals just happened to draw the numbers for all the valuable plots!

Marshall Islanders have trouble in Arkansas because Arkansans do not speak Marshallese

A spiffing idea would be to learn Enlish if they went to an English-speaking country wouldn't it?

She enlisted in the United States Army after she graduated from her Marshallese high school. In 2005, she entered the civilian world and, like thousands of Marshallese before her, came to Arkansas.

Almost all of them live in this working-class town in the northwest corner of the state, where Tyson Foods has its headquarters. They arrived here hoping to escape poverty and poor health: their nation ranks third in tuberculosis deaths per capita. Diabetes is rampant. Leprosy still lurks.

The promise of a steady income is a big draw. Tyson’s minimum starting wage is $8.70 an hour, with benefits, a relative fortune for Marshallese. But the islanders discover that they will need to buy a car to get to work and, before that, that they will need to pass a driver’s test, which is not offered in their language. Many must pay rent for the first time. They puzzle over the American obsession with time, and they are ignorant of bureaucracy and health care systems.
