Posted by iusbvision on February 22, 2009

Governor Jindal explains in even more detail what is wrong with some of the stimulus rules that would force the states to raise taxes if they took the money. “We have to spend a dollar to get a dime”.

I like Michael Steele because not only does he have the common touch, not only does he “get it”, but he is also totally sincere.

Just how much trouble is our economy in?

Posted by iusbvision on February 22, 2009

Our debt and federal obligations now exceed world GDP.

Our idiotic government is “monetizeing” the debt – if you don’t know how bad this is, watch this video:

VIDEO: Violence spreads as Sweden’s social welfare system collapses

Posted by iusbvision on February 22, 2009

This video from Sweden is another example of the culture war that is happening in parts of Western Europe.

There have been some reports of the violence in the southern Swedish city of Malmo where the police and other emergency services are too afraid to respond to calls. Parts of Malmo, as in some parts of France, have become a state within a state.

You don’t have to agree with this Swede’s video, but it does give a valuable perspective to the culture war that is happening there. You won’t see a video like this in class because it will make the radically politically correct freak out and just because the PC crowd might not like it, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t a great deal of truth in the video.

Just look at these Swedish newspaper reports from 2004 –,2789,529910,00.html

Malmø, Sweden. The police now publicly admit what many Scandinavians have known for a long time: They no longer control the situation in the nations’s third largest city. It is effectively ruled by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants. Some of the Muslims have lived in the area of Rosengård, Malmø, for twenty years, and still don’t know how to read or write Swedish. Ambulance personnel are attacked by stones or weapons, and refuse to help anybody in the area without police escort. The immigrants also spit at them when they come to help. Recently, an Albanian youth was stabbed by an Arab, and was left bleeding to death on the ground while the ambulance waited for the police to arrive. The police themselves hesitate to enter parts of their own city unless they have several patrols, and need to have guards to watch their cars, otherwise they will be vandalized. “Something drastic has to be done, or much more blood will be spilled” says one of the locals.

The number of people emigrating from the city of Malmø is reaching record levels. Swedes, who a couple of decades ago decided to open the doors to Muslim “refugees” and asylum seekers, are now turned into refugees in their own country and forced to flee their homes. The people abandoning the city mention crime and fear of the safety of their children as the main reason for leaving.

ALL of the 600 windows at one of the schools in Malmø have been broken during the summer holiday. Window smashing alone costs the city millions every year. City buses have been forced to avoid the immigrant ghetto, as they are met with youths throwing rocks or bottles at them if they enter. Earlier this year, a boy of Afghan origin had made plans to blow up his own school.

People working at the emergency ward at the major hospital in Malmø receive threats every day, and are starting to get used to it. Patients with knives or guns are commonplace. They have discussed having metal detectors at the emergency entrance, but some fear this could be seen as a provocation.

Lisa Nilsson has lived in Manhatten, New York City, for 25 years. After moving back to Malmø, Sweden, she now misses the safety of New York. She never walks anywhere in Malmø after dark, but takes a taxi everywhere she goes.

Rapes in Sweden as a whole have increased by 17% just since the beginning of 2003, and have had a dramatic increase during the past decade. Gang rapes, usually involving Muslim immigrant males and native Swedish girls, have become commonplace. Two weeks ago, 5 Kurds brutally raped a 13-year-old Swedish girl.,2789,528363,00.html

22-year-old Swedish woman going out for fresh air gang raped by three strange men. The only said one word to her: “Whore!”

Ali Dashti comments: “Stories like this are in Swedish newspapers every week. Swedish media usually take great care not to mention the ethnic background of the perpetrators, but you can usually read it between the lines.”

One more: how have Swedish politicians reacted to the chaos caused in one of their major cities because of Muslims of whom even the police seem to be afraid? By making it easier for Muslims to enter Sweden:

Sweden’s politicians view arranged marriages as a positive tradition: a cultural pattern that immigrants should be allowed to preserve even in Sweden. The Swedish government feels that interfering in arranged marriages is an encroachment upon private life. In addition, immigrant couples can apply for family reunification in Sweden even if they’ve never seen each other before – as long as the marriage is entered in a culture with a tradition of parents arranging marriages on behalf of their children. A 2002 study by Växjö University economics professor Jan Ekberg found that immigration cost Swedish taxpayers DKK 33 billion that year, compared to just DKK 10 billion in Denmark. And while one might assume that the rise in costs would result in knee-jerk opposition to immigration, just the opposite has happened in Sweden. A Swedish government commission has proposed abolishing the so-called “seriousness requirement.”

Video: What Islam is Not

Posted by iusbvision on February 22, 2009

This famed video has been featured all over the world. It examines the culture war and how that war is played out as a radicalized Islamic population grows. (Hat Tip Jim Quinn)

While I do not care for the picture that this youtuber added on at the end of the video, the video’s content itself makes an interesting case worthy of consideration and discussion. Politically correct extremists and those who choose to manipulate political correctness will find this video greatly offensive. Too bad.

Rick Santelli Explains What is Wrong with Obama’s Mortgage Plan

Posted by iusbvision on February 22, 2009

This idea that we should only help those with mortgages who are behind on their payments is nuts. My family is struggling just like so many others and is on the edge between making payments and not making them.

Everyone deserves some mortgage relief if the government is going to do this.

Why? Because a great many of these mortgages were with people who were buying homes they could not afford, or extra homes in order to “flip them” in 2-3 years in order to make a fast buck. They got caught when the housing market crashed. Are these the people you want to bail out and benefit at the cost of YOUR mortgage going up? Go through bankruptcy judges Obama says?? So if your in trouble and broke how are you supposed to hire a lawyer???

This Obama plan stinks and as it stands now, as broke as I am, it is not going to help me. It is not going to help most people who are cutting back and struggling to make their mortgage payments.

As far as Larry Kudlow’s complaint about the White House Press Secretary attacking a member of the media, he is only partially correct. When the media acts responsibly as Santelli is and honestly critiquing the Obama plan Kudlow is correct, but when the media acts as a partisan instrument that is out to destroy you as was the case during the Bush Administration, they should have done what Tony Snow started to do and amp it up; call out media instruments that are ridiculously partisan, biased, hateful and unfair as the New York Times was to Snow, McCain, Palin, and the Bush Administration. The best way to fight the abuse of free speech by the elite media is more speech, not less.
