Pharyngula

Glenn Beck explained

Suddenly, it makes sense. Schizophrenia is a methodology. Now we also know who is watching.

    He speaks of “muslim neighborhoods” in France, of which there are none.

    Well, almost…

    Europe is on the verge of civil war!

    As if we’d bother.

    Paris is literally on fire!

    I am in Paris right now, with the Seine in front of the window.

    Incidentally, France managed to raise its birth rate to 2.1 children per woman — by the use of the occult, ungodly practices of *horror* socialism.

    It always seemed to me, from a rather German perspective, that the politial discourse in France has always been a bit rougher than elsewhere.

    In Austria, the Austrian Association of Unions and the Economy Association etc. sit together and negotiate the wages for the next year. That’s called the paragovernment. Average strike duration per year: a couple of seconds. Seems to be similar in Germany (keyword: Metaller), though less extreme.

    In France, the bosses negotiate with the government, then the workers go on strike, and then they start negotiating. I know people living here who avoid flying by Air France at any cost…

    Well, whatever the reasons, the French will step on the lawn. My mom says they probably elected Sarkozy so they can have a revolution… they haven’t had any for so long…

    that “fright-culture” that seems to be running rampant in the conservative circles of US society.

    It’s always the same: ignorance produces fear, and fear produces conservativism.

    I bought the book “The Age of Anxiety” two years ago. I still haven’t read it…
