Happy Mayday.

Britain's Chancellor is predicting the recession will last ten years - based on absurdly optimistic growth predictions.

Bank bailouts are going on pay rises for bankers.

The facists are getting confident. And the police are...doing their bit

The papers are half full of "Swine Flu will kill 140 million", and half full of "Swine Flu's all hype so don't worry". So completely full of shit as usual.

The prevailing reasoning seems to be: The Bird Flu and SARS outbreaks didn't become epidemics, therefore they were never going to become epidemics, therefore anything that might become an epidemic...won't.

Britain's pulled out of Iraq. And Trying to be dignified about it.

I thought you were supposed to declare victory before leaving.

Chrysler has gone bankrupt.

So in short: Everything is continuing to go wrong.


  1. You can declare victory anytime you want! Bush did it while the war was getting started.

    The silver lining in the Mexican flu is that pork chops are really inexpensive now!

    Don't forget to vote. Yes you can!

  2. Everything is continuing to go wrong.And this surprises you?

    Chrysler has gone bankrupt.Are you really bankrupt if the court will cut your debt and the goventment will give you billions of dollars?

    On the bright side, I read this Scott Adams quote this morning and thought of you.

    "Ask a deeply religious Christian if he’d rather live next to a bearded Muslim that may or may not be plotting a terror attack, or an atheist that may or may not show him how to set up a wireless network in his house. On the scale of prejudice, atheists don’t seem so bad lately."

  3. One of the positives is that Chrysler is more free to reorganize while it is in bankruptcy than it could if it wasn't.

    My favorite bit about that article that you linked to was Obama blaming the holdouts for trying to get some of that tax payer money. Oh come on, he's throwing out trillions of dollars. Who wouldn't want some of that? And who wants to forgive loans if you can suspect that someone (the government) is going to pay it no matter what?
