The Obama Deception

Bush is out but the conspiracy folks just didn’t disappear as a result.

Whaddyas make of this? Heheh.

Evil Bush, you’ve just been out-eviled by evil Obama!

Props, though, on how short a time this vid took to emerge.

SOS BTW… Illuminati, Bilderberg, Rockefellers et. al….

Had a gut

Generally, I enjoy living and working in Korea. Sure the place isn’t as pretty to look at as back home and one has to be pretty careful when choosing a new job as there are plenty of unscrupulous employers out there. And sure, it’s different being in the minority, especially in such a homogenous, patriotic and somewhat insular country. But overall, teaching English over here has been a generally positive experience.

However, I have one pet hate. It bugs me every time it happens and it happens all too often. Koreans don’t just do it to foreigners (and I’ll always be considered one, even if I learn Korean, marry one and live here for 20 years), they do it to other Koreans, too. Kids do it, adults do it, even little old ladies do it. Well maybe Koreans don’t mind when it happens to them but I am bloody sick of it.

Pushing in. I swear pretty much every Korean either has no concept of or total disregard for the process of waiting in line to be served. Pushing in is so rude and disrespectful and reflects so poorly on Korea and Koreans.

I was patentiently waiting behind the person being served at a burger joint today. Just as the woman finished her transaction and I was about to step up, this grandmother, yes a grandmother, half-eaten burger in hand, just walks straight past be and starts mouthing off an order with some burger still in her mouth (another disgusting habit Koreans have is chewing with their mouth open and/or talking while chewing). What’s worse, the woman behind the counter, whom I’ve “known” for about a year and a half now, was quite happy to take her order even though she’d seen me standing there well before the old hag had even gotten up from her table. And that bugs me, too.

Of course, like all times I complain when someone pushes in, they just giggle and say sorry as if they hadn’t seen my six foot two frame standing there. Another time, a counter girl said sorry, she didn’t see me. This was moments after she began to serve two kids who’d pushed in whose heads barely made it above the counter.

Had a gut. I walked out this time. If you’re Korean, stop doing this! If you’re in Korea and know any Koreans, tell them to stop it!

PS And learn how to navigate a bloody rotary properly!

Russia Backs Return to Gold Standard

It’s sort of a modified, limited hang-out, but Russia is promoting at least a partial return to the gold standard for international currencies.

“Arkady Dvorkevich, the Kremlin’s chief economic adviser, said Russia would favour the inclusion of gold bullion in the basket-weighting of a new world currency based on Special Drawing Rights issued by the International Monetary Fund.

Chinese and Russian leaders both plan to open debate on an SDR-based reserve currency as an alternative to the US dollar at the G20 summit in London this week, although the world may not yet be ready for such a radical proposal.”

Too funny: Having money backed by real value is “radical.” No, it isn’t, it’s moral… but you can be sure the Russians and Chinese are not proposing this for positive moral ends, rather they have designs on taking advantage of the US mountain of debt that Obi-One has buried us under to weaken us economically. Still, I’m glad they brought this up, because it will strike fear into a lot of arrogant hearts, or it ought to.

If some countries return to the gold standard, international financiers and financial institutions will flock to those currencies and the US dollar and other unbacked fiat currencies will plummet into worthlessness. If that doesn’t worry you, it should. The US, GB, Australia and other western nations are in no position to return to the gold standard: Too much money in circulation and nowhere near enough gold to hitch to it.

Still, at some point this is going to happen, even if it takes a total global financial meltdown to achieve it… and it just might.

The choices will come down to this…


…or this.
