Those voices in my head aren’t actually in my head.

Scary, huh?

I put this thought up because no one was making the obvious point and it bugged me.

Now HotAir finds a report showing that 40% of “the right” would expect violence over tax increases.  I’d like to see the exact phrasing of the poll questions.  And, of course, as Rasmussen notes,  

Conservatives see a likelihood of violence under all three scenarios more than moderates and liberals do.

Of course they do, it’s why they’re philosophically conservative.  “Unintended consequences” isn’t gibberish to them, as it apparently is to the left.

And word to the statists:  if tax payers ever feel that physical measures are their only recourse to tyranny, their actions won’t be like the London rioters.

It won’t be mindless violence.

I've accepted that all of you are socially superior to me. But no pretending that any of you are rational.

    Conservatives don’t start riots. But we do tend to win them.

    Unfortunately, I suspect there will be race riots in the event Obama loses in 2012. I really hope I am wrong.

    Violence is inevitable.

    I just came back from my hometown where I celebrated my grandpa’s 88th birthday. I had a look at the newspapers. In one some psychologists was whining about the London riots and how Austria needs more psychologists to prevent similar from happening here. In another “journalists” whined how this was a “revolution” by those “without perspectives/jobs/future” and Austria was heading for that, too.

    Three of my acquaintances own small companies. One baker, two carpenters. All three would, at once, hire youths as apprentices so that they could learn the trade. However they can’t anyone qualified for this training since the applicants lack any skills and willingness. Most can’t use proper German. Many can’t even do basic math (stuff like calculating the area of a square.) And all of them can’t be bothered to be on time for important appointments, let alone for work.

    But of course, the “youths” will blame those three guys for not getting a job and the media, the leftists AND the bloody clergy will join the howling. The dumbing down in recent years is finally paying off ain’t it?

    It’s the same all across the EU.

    I was an IT chief in a large Austrian company. When we had an open position we usually got a huge load of applications. From those roughly 10% made it through the screening process and we usually had about 20 interviews. That’s 20 out of hundreds. The rest was simply not qualified enough to clean our floors. I should have kept some of those applications, because, seriously, there was some comedy gold in them.

    The jobs are there. Anyone who really wants one can get one in the EU right now. However, why work if you get more from the government when you don’t work? Of course, the same people then whine about the rich.

    I think the main problem is stupidity (and laziness.) I’m not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don’t we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

      On the other hand, it doesn’t matter for Europe, for I, as Grand Inquisitor, have already declared Exterminatus upon the entire continent and consigned millions of souls to oblivion. May True justice account in all balance. The Holy Q’uin protects.

        Ich kann backen lernen, Ja!! Ich kann arbeite(n?)!! I just need more German so I can speak effectively. 🙂

        • Mountainbear says:

          Arbeiten, yep.

          But why would you want to do that? You’ll be taxed into the ground, even in those jobs.

            Because, believe it or not, I have skills that could be used in America, but I cannot find a job. I would have to lie about my skill set and experience to get my foot in the door. If someone is willing to train me, I would jump to learn something new. That’s why. I am a health educator by degree. And back when I worked full time, credentialing was just coming into play. Now, for what I used to do, they want RN’s!!

            The South lacks decent bakeries…and I would jump at the chance to learn. Ich wurde liebe Kuchen zu machen…(is it liebe, or is another word used…I don’t know!) All the German I know is from listening and trying to converse…Germans do like to “make” everything! 🙂
