"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

A Thought On Climate Change

Global warming, global cooling, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and armageddon. H/t to Klein Verzet for this:

The BBC reports that Ministers from 10 African countries have met in Ethiopia to agree a common position on climate change, months before a crucial UN meeting. They are expected to renew demands for billions of dollars in compensation for Africa because of damage caused by global warming and they are likely to ask rich nations to cut emissions by 40% by 2012.

So, it's still all to do with the money-grasping capitalist west which made itself rich on the back of poor down-trodden African slavery. And nothing at all to do with corrupt African warlords/leaders/power-mad crazy b@st@rds and internecine feuding.

I think all the English should swap places with all the Africans and we should take our financial institutions and entrepreneurial skills with us to Africa - we'd have to rename the countries as well. I bet the old England would soon sink into a hellhole of the African leaders' making and the old Africa would begin to take shape and remould itself into a dynamic society.

Unfortunately, when it was a successful, thriving country, the African leaders would start stamping their feet saying how unfair it was because the mineral wealth of old England had already been exploited whereas the old Africa was rich and they could have done the same if only the West had given them more money for desalination plants; boo-bloody-hoo.

I am sick to death of this victim mentality and the people in the West who encourage it by shouting mea maxima culpa and throwing money away via aid so the African leaders get richer and more powerful and nothing changes for the ordinary people.

A picture of someone getting really angry, like me.
