Rioting

Oh yeah there was some rioting “recently” and there’s been a huge amount of bullshit spouted about it. Most by some twat who has written a book called (I jest not) “Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class”. What a fucking commie piece of shit. Talk about twisting facts to suit theories. There’s a vast amount of working class people who are not “chav” in the slightest. No doubt this cunt is some 40-something tit who thinks he “understands the youth”. His book title makes about as much sense as “Mods: The Demonisation of the Working Class” would have done in 1961!

Of course the real cause of the rioting was the fact that there’s an underclass of illiterate savages who expect something for nothing and think society owes them a living. They have been taught by red teachers who are always going on about how tough the poor had it and how “if you’d lived back then you would have been a factory slave” (“but never mind, our kind, er, I mean ‘the system’ shut down all the factories in the 80’s!”). They have been bought up with a false sense of entitlement, reminders to “look out for number one” and to believe they are special snowflakes whose feelings are the most important thing in the world. They have had it endlessly drummed into them that they have “no chance” because they are at the bottom of society – especially because of the high student loans!

The fact is university is accessible to just about everybody. The fact is in today’s Britain with literacy and effort anybody can get into Oxbridge for nothing, providing they pass the exams for a scholarship. But the underscum aren’t satisfied with this. They want success and riches without the effort. Some people blame “instant fame” shows like X factor, but I don’t buy it. Even shows like that feature crap singers being laughed at, rejections and endless shots of the people who show promise spending hours working hard at the “boot camp” improving their skills. Even the winners of these “instant fame” shows have spent many weeks in intense training before they get that record deal. The real cause of the expectation of success without the effort goes back to the “you are special” attitude that’s constantly spouted at school and home. Teachers really need to be told to put a dose of reality into their lessons – but of course the cowardly red NUT holds sway over Britain’s schools, this is the organisation that branded “3 R’s” education as “elitist”, remember? How out of touch can you get?

The solution is of course to educate children from birth on their civic responsibilities, how they “owe” society rather than society “owing” them. Of course that harks back to “coughs and sneezes spread diseases”-type public information films of the 1930’s, and so of course any attempt to implement policies like that will be shot down by a parade of red vermin making “hilarious” satirical videos in RP accents.

And yet what solutions have the reds got? Scratch the surface of any one of thier policies and you have the foundation for the eradication of national borders (and with them seperate cultures and languages) and the “getting rid of” “outdated” ideas. At least the Nazis are open about book burning.

Fire on our street

Earlier I was making a post on my “Things Japanese” blog, mentioning how some guy who lives in Japan takes photos of everything to put on his blog,  and I thought “My Everything Else blog ought to be like that”. But then I thought “Nothing much interesting happens for me to take pictures of”. Then my mum came in and said “AYAYAYAYAFAIAH”, so I got the camera and went snappin’.

It’s a garage that burned down, leaving three walls standing. The heat must have been tremendous, every time it looked like it had gone out another part would flare up on it’s own. Even the beams over the doors!

Huge comic haul!

Today I went into Cambridge intending to get the latest 4 Commando’s, the latest Bakuman and any Graffix books from the 90’s I could find in charity shops. Oh and maybe watch Captain America.

I actually got the latest Bakuman, A couple of reprint books of romantic picture libraries from the 50’s,  Tiger Annual and… 200 weekly comics!

Plumph

There’s about 50 Wizards from the 1970’s (when it was a picture-story comic with only a few text stories, rather than the other way around!). A lot of issues from between 5 and 98, and then most of 1974. The same amount again of Tiger from the 70’s and 80’s and then probably over 100 issues of Roy of the Rovers from the 80’s, including the famous “Roy Race Shot!” issue. And it’s not the Guardian reprint either. There’s also seemingly a few more Tigers mixed in that pile (only had the Wizards out so far. Need to get some boxes!)

The total for that little lot?  £30! I got them in a pawn shop, then took the bus back out of the city and drove back in to pick the stuff up from the rear of the shop. However I misjudged my distance / the bloke’s directions and stood ringing the non-working doorbell on an old lockup for about 45 minutes. An old lady had told me “They’ll ignore the bell!” and I took the statement at face value, assuming that the shop was too busy for anybody to come out. However crammed in a narrow gap next to the lockup was a house occupied by yanks. One of these came out and told me the back door of the pawn shop was actually in a much-newer looking building next door! So I rang that bell and was “served” within seconds. I’ll know for next time XD
