In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

The Troubles

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

2500 police have been injured in France this year, and a police trade union leader says of the situation: "We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada, with stones and Molotov cocktails." Randall Parker reports that as many as 70% of the people in French jails are Muslims.

Meanwhile, guess who's preventing polio from being stamped out in India?

I'm amazed at how European police tolerate the use of Molotov cocktails. In the US that's a guaranteed way to win the Darwin Award.

France is in a civil war? How come no American media even covers this?

I know sound horribly hokey, but I'm beginning to understand the Mac Davis song about "We sure could use a little good news today." When he says..."Nobody got assassinated in the whole third world today/and all the children in the streets of Ireland had to was play..."

Yes, no censorship in the mainstream liberal media, huh?

Civil war? Amongst whom, the citizens? Its not a civil war, it is an invasion and attack, abetted by the politicians and elite! Why?

The police are trained to treat the attackers like nagging schoolteachers. No guns for the citizens! NO shooting of the invaders and attackers! Why?

You will live to see Europe in another open war. It will lose that war unless it has the stomach to engage in ethnic cleasing. It will lose the war unless it has the stomach to kill civilians without apology.

Terrorists have found out that whites will not kill civilians. So the terrorists will kill civilians, knowing the west will try to seek out the "wrongdoers" as the terrorists disappear into the general population. No serious war is ever won without killing lots of civilians. Until we agree to do it, we are doomed to fail. Until we are going to deport all different from us, we are doomed to fail.

You keep thinking your experiences with tiny amounts of minorities will be the same as when there are many. Do you now realize how wrong you were? Total historical ignorance. We are reaping what we have sown. How do you like your 'pluralism" now?

America and Europe are white christian nations. The farther we get from that, the worse these nations will become, until they fail and become third world countries. And the minorites will tear down our monuments, traditions, and history and try to supplant them with their own.

Socialist fools!
