Something about the economy or something.

For heaven’s sake, BBC, stop peddling the ‘recession over’ line and talking about our economic problems as if they were in the past. This is all part of the Clown/Starling conspiracy to try to make us feel better before the election, whereas those of us who live in the real world know only too well that our problems are far from over. We won’t even be making a start on the road to recovery until 7th May; until then, please stop your government-driven propaganda.

Douglas Lee, London

Starling? Who the fucking cock is fucking Starling? Is it some kind of sideways reference to Josef Stalin, Soviet leader 1878-1953, but with an ‘r’ and a ‘g’ jammed in there so it’s an entirely different word? Is it the bird? I don’t know that much about birds. Are starlings like magpies, but for taxes instead of shiny stuff? Are they notorious as the absolute worst bird at overseeing a national economy? Or is it, as I suspect, that tedious moron Douglas Lee is physically incapable of either calling a politician by their real name or thinking up an even slightly witty substitute for ‘Darling’?

I’m just fed up with this. I sometimes assume Harriet’s surname means ‘son of Harper’ before realising that if that actually was her name I wouldn’t ever get to read it. Every time I summon up the masocourage to look at a right-wing blog and see if I’ve not been wrong all along, I have to waste twenty minutes of my precious life ploughing through the sixty-two latest hilarious incarnations of Comrade (Has-)Bean Jocksky Bottler McLeonidBrezhnev Tartantits One-Eyed Idiot Barry “Bagpipe” Soetero Haggisface until I finally get to some lazy variation on “McBroon” and work out it must be the Prime Minister.

Though I suppose they’re just as stumped when they read ‘Gordon Brown’.

    In with john:

    Watch what happens after the general election.

    Public sector cuts will be brutal, placing a million or more on the dole. Taxes will skyrocket, interest rates will start to rise and continue to rise year on year. Education, health and rewal policing will be cut to the bone, but policing of our waste, speeds, etc will intensify to raise more money.
    The world is a bad place and it is about to get a whole lot worse.

    john Adair, Hull

    To be fair, john – I know you read SYB – it could get a lot better if you’d just fucking kill yourself. I know the human race has a happiness quota, and I know that you’re a miserable fartbubble, so slitting your fucking wrists in the bath will actually balance out the figures in the right direction.

    Think about it.

    I have been thinking of alternative witty names for politicians myself.

    The current primeminister was jilted by the party when John Smith died and Tony Blair took over and according to some he is a bit of a moron. So jilted, John, moron….has to be Gordon.

    He is also quite a shit public speaker and his smile could wither flowers at 100 paces. Shit and withered flowers are both brown in colour.

    Gordon Brown – that’s what I’ll call the fucker. Aren’t I clever?

    God forbid, they might even get deported, with a NuLabour party in charge, they will most likely get a free council house, benefits and tickets to fetch all their relatives across here.

    Would aliens change your life?

    If they came to steal our jobs and our pensions, then yes they would change my life, well they would if 12 years of NuLabour had not already done that.

    wow what a stream of pure undiluted sewage that thread is.

    “The UK is out of the recession”…..oh, how convenient….right before a general election! People who are still sucked in by these headlines will believe anything. It’s been geared to make the populus think that The Brown One really has saved the world, to make them obediently put their X next to NuLabour on their vote paper. I’ve no doubt we’ll see more of this psycho-manipulation during the next few months.

    Electrospin is so funny, The Brown One, not only is he using Gordons’ real name, but he is trying equating him to a

    So Nicelobon (ho ho very witty), you are too ill to work but in two years time you are going to be made redundant,not only are you bullshitting the doctors with your made up achy joints, but you have a crystal ball monitoring your employers business plan for the next two years and you know that they are going to kick your hypochondriac arse out the door.

    On the other hand, sneering at punny names is insufferably smug and reeks of arch cooler-than-thouness. “Bliar” did actually carry some rhetorical impact for a short time, though that was many years ago. Where this goes wrong is when people keep using it long after everyone’s seen it a hundred times, and when it gets really contrived and artficial. I mean, “Starling”, WTF?

    Incidentally, “Dubya” came from the people around the worthless little shit. It was supposed to show his authentic Texas-ness in a cutesy, down-home way.

    I went into a homeless shelter the other day. ‘I’d like a bowl of soup, please,’ I said.

    ‘Sorry, sir,’ said the PC Nazi on the other side of the counter, ‘but you’re quite clearly not homeless.’

    ‘This is a disgrace!’ I shouted. ‘I am even willing to pay for the soup if this is what is required!’

    ‘But sir,’ pleaded The Nulabur lacky, ‘If I were to let you have one of these bowls of soup that would mean that one unlucky homeless person would have to go without.

    Needless to say, I stormed out, kicking one of the homeless children (who was probably on benefits, or drugs, or a woman or something) in the face. Not even this could quench my anger!

    I was shaking with fury as I got home and fired up my internet browser to tell the world about my suffering. Thankfully, I was not the only one to be treated in such a way by these so called ‘charities’:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1246423/Children-middle-class-parents-banned-attending-school-trips.html

    typical – children with hardworking parents and from a strong background are being penalised because other parents can’t be bothered to get off their bums. as a tax payer, i am not happy that my money is being used in this way.

    Here, you can see Anon is the kind of person who doesn’t like it when charities bring a smile to the faces of disadvantaged children. He comes from a strong family, that’s why he’s too scared to use his real name.

    Please think about it – this is a scheme for “financially disadvantaged” children. Offering to pay for your child to go on the trip is utterly ridiculous and defeats the whole object of what the scheme is about.

    You guys may already be aware of this, but it was a revelation to me.

    Just Googled “Poe’s Law” and found myself on something called “Conservapedia” which is an American, Republican, right wing, fundamentalist version of Wikipedia.

    Apparently they “do not allow liberal bias to deceive and distort here” and “no other encyclopedic resource on the internet is free of corruption by liberal untruths.”

    They don’t like liberals much. In fact, they’re rewriting the Bible to remove its liberal references.

    No, seriously:

    Fuck Me! That C.B.Project makes the Taliban look like a bunch of gay bishops.

    The bits of their ‘Conservative Bible’ that are available to read are noteworthy for the fact that all the quality cock-ups that scientists jeer at have been smoothed and reworded to not fall foul of science. (Eg. the original Bible describes the moon as a light source, they have fuzzed their Conservative Bible so that it is no longer described as a source of light.)

    tarawasjesus

    He means jobs for the DEAD. Obama (along with the rest of CON- gress) is a poser from the dead realm (antimatter imaginary numbers) faking as a true living human. The dead antimatter realm exists because Oblama and dead ‘mates’ steal my and sean hannity’s source wave; me by sending a fake sean hannity with a large ‘W’ spin soul inside to blow holes in the universe and sean by force pairing him with a bunch of dead polygo-chick w spins to carve up his soul and create a constantly depleting inferior realm. The rich dead keep sean hannity their prisoner so they can rob him of his soul energy using electromagnetism; this is what the secret masonic han(d)nity shake refers to. And yeah, the dead are GREEDY and have their e CON omy attached to the living; which is where all the trillions have gone. Satan, a self-aware evil entity of data (numbers) runs the show but plays dead so it can blame sean and I and fake w spins for all ITS EVIL. The polygo chick mary mags are hollywood starlets and in on the evil hannity shake too so they can get money and movie parts and FRESH boties while robbing real humans of health, happiness, beauty & a relationship with true god.

    The best part of Conservapedia is that once they’d re-typed all the bits of wikipedia they didn’t agree with, and included their anti liberal rhetoric, they realised they still have a great big encycolpedia to wirte.

    I haven’t been on it in months, but the ‘football’ and ‘Northampton’ articles were so full of crap it made me gigle for ages.

    @Ugeine:

    The “football sports” and “Northampton” articles are still there today, and match your succinct description.

    If Conservapedia made YouTube videos, they’d look like this but more self-important.

    Apologies, my English and my sense of humour seems to be failing at the same time. I am worried about the lad at youthey.me.uk, I don’t see the funny in what he has posted, only illness and after 30 minutes of pondering the screen I haven’t found a way of saying this in an off-hand and amusing way. Now I am sad and I am late getting the dinner on

    @Desertfish Good to see: And my favourite article is still running strong:

    http://www.conservapedia.com/Atheism_and_Mass_Murder

    Christian philosophers and theologians explain that there are causal links between mass murder and atheism. Atheism, lack belief in God, have the following characteristics that can lend itself to mass murder and can explain why the greatest mass murderers were atheists:[10][11][12]

    * lack of recognition of an ultimate judge of moral actions and a judge who sets injustice aright in a last judgement, and thus do not recognize the immorality of murder.

    Think of it this way…

    His output is very very funny. Then you double up and the fact that he probably believes all this means that you go “wow”, and makes it less funny.

    However, rest assured that if he’s so into his delusions, he’s probably already been picked up by mental health services and either refused treatment and not pushed because he wasn’t considered a danger – he says at one point that he’s on Income Support – or is currently in treatment that isn’t working.

    The good thing about Sumon is that he doesn’t appear to be doing anyone any harm – unlike Vivian Lehman of madcowtourist.com, who, by her own admission has a long and serious history of harassing individuals.

    @JC’s Chin

    Firstly, thank you for not pointing out that my post ended up in the wrong thread – a cold feeling washed over me when I realised what had happened but after much thought I decided it would make matters worse to issue an apology, a la ‘blockquote fail’ and ‘obviously there should be a full stop at the end of that sentence’. In the end I opted to say nothing, because ‘it was the computer’s fault’ just sounds lame, even if it’s true, which it is, I swear.

    Anyway. Poor Sumon. The view into his mind was too much for me, and I sincerely hope someone is looking after him. I also had a worry that reading what he had put out on the internet would make things worse for him – I know, I know, there is only a blinding headache at the end of that particular line of reasoning.

    Obviously, I am still working on my tough-as-nails-if-you-think-that-is-shocking-have-a-look-at-this persona, and getting to grips with an internet that isn’t all about facebook and internet-banking and weekend break/hotel offers. I should probably take a look at that madcowtourist.com site as part of my conditioning/ desensitization programme. Thanks. :-)
