Drekkum saman sprungurnar

Įrni heitinn brśarsmišur, stórsöngvari og höfušsnillingur  lagši Reykjaęšina ķ steyptan stokk. Žaš komu fram sprungur ķ steypunni frį mér žegar hann byrjaši aš steypa lokin ofan į stokkinn. Hitaveitan gerši röfl śr žessu og fundahöld uršu. Svo datt mįliš nišur og žegar ég spurši Įrna hvernig mįliš hefši endaš." Ja, sagši Įrni, viš drukkum eiginlega sprungurnar saman eftir einn fundinn." 

Og žaš tókst aš steypa lokin įfram vandręšalaust.

Nś ętlar Sjįlfstęšisflokkurinn aš beita sama bragšinu og hann Įrni Framsóknarmašur. Drekka sprungurnar śtaf O3 saman:

"Įgęti flokksmašur.

 

Stjórn flokksrįšs hefur įkvešiš boša til kvöldskemmtunar ķ kjölfar flokksrįšs- og formannafundar laugardagskvöldiš 14. september nęstkomandi.

 

Bśast mį viš dśndurfjöri į kvöldskemmtuninni en žar mun m.a. hin gošsagnakennda hljómsveit Stjórnin spila fyrir balli įsamt gestasöngvurum auk žess sem grķnistinn Bergur Ebbi veršur meš uppistand. Veglegar veitingar verša ķ boši.

 

Kvöldskemmtunin er hluti af glęsilegri afmęlisdagskrį flokksins ķ tilefni af 90 įra afmęli hans.

 

Viš hvetjum žig eindregiš til aš taka žessa dagsetningu frį.

 

Mišaverši veršur stillt ķ hóf. Upplżsingar um mišakaup mun birtast į xd.is eftir helgi.

 

 

Meš kvešju,

Starfsfólk Sjįlfstęšisflokksins"

Aušvitaš. Nema hvaš. Įrni Jóhannsson var höfušsnillingur og lét sig ekki muna um aš keyra ókeypis fyllingu į bķlum sķnum ķ grunninn į Albert-Hall, sem svo hét žį og varš sķšan aš Valhöll.

Žaš fennir ķ sporin sagši gamli Sveinn stundum. Aušvitaš er langt ķ landsfund og kosningar og gott fyllerķ getur hreinsaš loftiš og žétt raširnar eftir žennan Orkupakka3.

Drekkum saman sprungurnar.

 


Grķpum tękifęriš

til aš losna śt śr oki EES- samningsins. 

Brynjar Nķelsson žingmašur Sjįlfstęšisflokksins svaraši fyrirspurn į fésbók meš žessum oršum:

"ESB myndi aldrei gera samning viš smįrķki meš žessum hętti ķ dag. Žegar EES samningurinn var geršur į sinum tķma voru EFTA löndin sjö(Austurrķki, Sviss, Svķžjóš og Finnland) og ESB löndin 15. Žau vilja žessi lönd inn ķ ESB og finnst óžęgilegt žetta flókna samstarf. Žau munu nżta sér aš slķta žessu viš fursta tękifęri. Ég vil ekki aš Ķsland afhendi žeim tękifęriš."

Pįll Vilhjįlmsson skżrir orš Brynjars svo:

..."Brynjar lķtur svo į aš EES-samningurinn sé forsenda byggšar į Ķslandi.

Tilfelliš er aš Ķsland var velmegunaržjóš fyrir EES-samninginn um mišjan tķunda įratug sķšustu aldar. Einnig aš EES-samningurinn er upphaflega geršur sem ašlögunarsamningur fyrir vęntanlegar ESB-žjóšir. 

EES-samningurinn er hęgt en örugglega aš gera Ķsland aš hjįlendu Evrópusambandsins. Brynjari og žingflokki Sjįlfstęšisflokksins finnst žaš harla gott.

 

Žau munu nżta sér aš slķta žessu viš fyrsta tękifęri. Ég vil ekki aš Ķsland afhendi žeim tękifęriš."

Ég vil svara Brynjari svo:

Netop Brynjar, hjįlpum žeim til žess aš losna śr žessu helvķti fyrirskipana og žvingana fyrir Ķsland sem gefa okkur harla lķtiš nettó.

Aušvitaš aš greišir samningurinn ķ nśverandi mynd eitthvaš fyrir višskiptum Ķslendinga meš fiskafuršir ašallega og styttir eitthvaš ašgengistķma og lękkar hugsanlega einhverja  tolla og gjöld toll į ašrar vörur.

En segir žetta eitthvaš um žaš aš ekkert af žessu gęti ekki fengist meš tvķhliša samningum um frķverslun? Įn vištöku allra žeirra žvingandi reglugerša sem fylgja samningnum?

Einn fylgifiskur er žaš aš viš tókum upp ašild aš Schengen og  flóttamannavandamįliš žvķ tengt og žau óžęgindi og kostnašur sem viš žar af höfum? Af hverju geršust eyžjóšin Bretar aldrei ašilar aš Schengen? 

Er ašgengi aš einhverjum gagnabanka svo og mįlskotsréttur til Mannréttindadómstóls Evrópu svo mikils virši aš óbętanlegt sé aš fara ašrar leišir? Er okkar dómskerfi svona gallaš?

Almenningur hér hefur upplifaš hęrra orkuverš vegna orkusamstarfsins. Hann sér ekki naušsyn žess aš samžykkja O3 žess vegna og er į varšbergi vegna slķks samstarfs.

 

Hvaš er žaš eiginlega sem gerir žaš naušsynlegt aš rķghalda ķ žennan EES samning viš tollabandalagiš ESB, sem er ķ innbyršis vandręšum og veršur nśna fyrir 15 % rżrnun markašssvęšis viš śtgöngu Breta.

Hagvaxtarleysi til margra įra er į Evrusvęšinu og atvinnuleysi rķkir žar sem ekki annarsstašar ķ heiminum.

Af hverju žurfum viš Ķslendingar į žvķ aš halda aš rķghalda ķ žennan pilsfald sem hótar okkur nś haršręšum vegna makrķldeilu sem žaš var įšur bśiš aš valda okkur verulegu tjóni meš žįtttöku okkar ķ višskiptabanni žess viš Rśssa?

Žeir stóru eins og Žżzkaland fara ekki neitt eftir slķkum fyrirmęlum en halda įfram kśgun sinni į öšrum Evrulöndum. Žeir setja skilyršin ķ žessum bandalagi og śtdeila višurlögum til hinna smęrri ašilanna ef žeir hlżša ekki. Žeir smįu eru réttlausir og leggja ekki refsingar į Žjóšverja vegna Rśssavišskipta žeirra.

 

Heimurinn er langtum stęrri fyrir utan EES svęšiš žar sem viš komumst įfram meš frķverzlunarsamningum.

Grķpum tękifęriš sem felst ķ höfnun Orkupakka3 og losum okkur śt śr žessu kęfandi EES-fašmlagi til enurreisnar fullveldis Ķslands.

 


Merkilegt

er žaš finnst manni aš mešaljóninn į Alžingi lętur sjaldan ķ sér heyra annaš ef Evrópumįl koma į dagskrį en aš EES sé svo góšur  samningur aš ekkert styggšaryrši megi um hann segja. Žį ertu rasisti, nasisti og einangrunarsinni umsvifalaust og įtt aš žegja.

Samt fer mikill hluti af störfum Alžingis ķ aš žrasa um óįran sem af žessum samningi hlżst. Schengen og hęlisleitendur,įsęlni stórvelda ķ aušlindir okkar litlu žjóšar og svo framvegis. Orkupakkar sem engir vilja, endalaust žras um innleišingar allskyns reglugerša og svo žęr sem žeir komast ekki yfir  aš lesa og viš fįum aldrei aš heyra og žingmennirnir bara samžykkja.  

 

Almenningur er lįtinn trśa žvķ aš allt verši hér svo betra ef hęgt sé aš vķsa ķslenskum dómsnišurstöšum til Mannréttindadómstóls Evrópu, samžykkja Icesave kröfur meš ķsköldu mati, taka viš öllum skilyršum sem frį ESB koma til žess aš mega eiga viš žaš bandalag einhver samskipti.Sem sį stóri aušvitaš  tślkar alltaf śt frį sķnum hagsmunum og sķnum ašferšum en hinir bara kyssa į vöndinn annars fį žeir ekki lįn eša višskipti.

Menn skilja žaš ekki aš ķ 28 žjóša bandalagi žį er žaš alltaf sį stóri sem setur skilyršin og įkvešur višurlögin ef hinir ekki hlżša. Sjįiš  Spįn, Grikkland, Ķtali og vandamįlin žar. 

Allt vegna žess aš Žżskaland hefur sett žeim stólinn fyrir dyrnar og lagt į žį ströff.Svo er stęrsti eša nęststęrsti flokkur ķslensku žjóšarinnar og fylgihnettir hans eru uppfullir af žvķ aš ganga žarna inn  og žį muni allt verša svo gott.

 

Atvinnuleysiš og unga fólkiš ķ žessum löndum blasir viš. Lįgt verš į fasteignum sem er žjóšaraušur, er gyllt fyrir Ķslendingum meš sķna ónżtu krónu aš sögn krataflokkanna.

Aušvitaš sękja žeir rķku žangaš į brunaśtsölurnar. Og svo  lķka til Ķslands žar sem svipaš hįttar til meš fįtęka bęndastétt į opinberu framfęri žó skįnaš hafi frį velmektardšgum Framsóknar. Svoleišis er žaš meš afdala jarširnar į Ķslandi sem Rathicliffe og Nubo vilja kaupa į spottprķs. Viš erum bara blįeygšir asnar upp tķl hópa  žó aš eitt einkenni slķks  sé aš viš höldum aš viš vitum allt betur en ašrir. Viš ereum žjóš Besserwissera upp til hópa.Og viš höfum ekki mikla ęttjaršarvitund heldur  žvķ viš viljum mmörg  bara selja og stinga af meš beinin okkar til aš naga žau skattfrjįlst ķ friši ķ skattaparadķsum. 

Višskiptahagsmunirnir ķslensku žjóšarinnar eru bara strangt tekiš ašeins hagsmunir stóru kvótagreifanna, Samherja og Brims.  Um žį er stašiš vöršur en flest  annaš mį reka į reišanum og kallaš fjandskapur viš hin heilaga EES samning. Žeir eiga sjįvaraušlindina sem ein skiptir mįli aš engir megi komast ķ. Skķtt meš orkuna, landiš, fólkiš  og allt annaš. 

ESB var sett til žess aš koma ķ veg fyrir styrjaldir eins og žęr tvęr sem geisušu į sķšustu öld. En voru žęr bara ekki naušsynlegar til žess aš koma skikki į hlutina? Nišurstašan varš aš allir lifa nśna betri tķma og langar ekkert ķ strķš.

Hvern fjandann į žį aš gera viš Evrópuher?

Mį ekki treysta žvķ aš Kaninn komi og reddi hlutunum ef eitthvaš ber uppį.Af hverju vill Samfylkingin og hennar śtfrymisliš  gera Ķslendinga herskylda ķ žessum fyrirfram ónżta Evrópuher? Kannski naušsynlegt uppeldisatriši fyrir óstżrilįtan ęskulżšinn ķ landinu sem jafnvel kżs Pķrata ķ auknum męli, greišir sér ekki og kann ekki bindishnśta.Her kostar peninga og žaš kostar enginn ósamstęšur hópur eins og ESB žar sem hver hefur eigin žjóš efst.

Žetta er annars merkilegt meš žennan  EES samning sem enginn veit eiginlega hvaša kosti hefur raunverulega sem ekki mętti nį betrum öšruvķsi og žį įn gallanna sem allir sjį aš eru fyrir hendi eins og til dęmis ķ umręšunum um O3 sem eru bśnar aš kljśfa žjóšina pólitķskt ķ heršar nišur.

 

 

 

 

 


Kosningažįttaka

er įreišanlega ekki mikiš įhugamįl žeirra sem nś sitja į žingi. Žeir vilja sem minnst fyrir völdunum hafa og vita aš litlir haršsnśnir smalahópar duga ķ prófkjörum eša uppstillingum sem žeir vilja alltaf allra helst.

Vęri lagšur į "žorgeršarlegur" nefskattur į alla kosningabęra menn įrlega sem yrši svo greiddur śt, svipaš og innleggs skannarnir hjį Endurvinnslunni sem leggja andvirši drukkinna dósa inn į kreditkortin, hugsanlega meš įlagi frį rķkinu, žannig aš žaš myndi muna um žaš aš męta ekki į kjörstaš, žį mętti auka kosningažįtttöku.

Mér fyndist žessi leiš huggulegri en aš sekta fólk fyrir aš męta ekki til aš tryggja kosningažįtttöku. En sjįlfsagt er žetta dautt mįl aš minnast į. Žvķ hver vill sosum almennt lżšręši ķ hjarta sķnu eins og almennar kosningar frekar en aš fį aš hafa sķna einokun ķ friši? 


Endir Orkupakkans?

į mįnudaginn kemur.

Jį hvaš žinglišiš varšar trślega. Žingflokkarnir eru tilbśnir aš samžykkja.Bjarni Benediktsson gęti sosum sent Gulla ķ pontu og lįtiš hann draga žingsįlyktunina til baka  svona til aš redda Sjįlfstęšisflokknum tķmabundiš frį fylgishruni.

EN Styrmir Gunnarsson veltir įhrifum sanžykktarinnar į fylgi flokkanna. Hann segir:

"Alžingi kemur saman ķ dag og mestar lķkur į aš žingiš samžykkiorkupakka 3 frį ESB eftir helgi. Žaš er einna helzt Framsóknarflokkurinn, sem gęti breytt žeirri stöšu enda er mest ķ hśfi fyrir hann eins og hśsfyllir į žremur fundum Mišflokksins aš undanförnu sżnir.

Hins vegar er ljóst aš žótt žingiš samžykki lżkur barįttunni innan einstakra flokka ekki žar meš. Žaš į ekki sķzt viš um Sjįlfstęšisflokkinn. Į vettvangi žess flokks munu afleišingar af samžykki orkupakkans, bęši kom fram į landfundi į nęsta įri, svo og ķ prófkjörum fyrir nęstu žingkosningar og ķ margvķslegu starfi į flokks vegum.

Žaš er langt sķšan skošanaįgreiningur um eitt tiltekiš mįl hefur rist svo djśpt innan žess flokks.

Žingmennirnir taka aš sjįlfsögšu sķnar įkvaršanir en žaš gera ašrir flokksmenn lķka."

Ég er nś ekki trśašur į aš mér verši bošiš į landfund flokksins og hvort Styrmi veršur žaš bošiš eša ekki.

Ég er ekki viss um žaš ķ dag aš ég muni nenna aš kaupa mig žarna inn į einhverja hallelśjasamkundu um O3 og meira EBE framsal į grundvelli einhverra klassķskra og ofmetinna EES hagsmuna, žar sem ekki mį nefna efasemdir um Schengen né annaš frekar en helvķti og djöfulinn ķ Dómkirkjunni.

Ég er hinsvegar alltaf til ķ aš męta ķ kaffistofuna og sjį gamla kunningja frekar en aš hlusta į rįšherrana, hvort sem žaš er mögulegt eša ekki. Nįvist mķn myndi engu breyta nema til aš skemmta mér sjįlfum žaš geri ég mér ljóst vegna atburša nęstlišinna tķma.

Endir Orkupakkans eru ekki ķ sjónmįli en hann  hefur hinsvegar snśiš mér alfariš til andstöšu viš allan EES samninginn sem ég tel śrelt žing og vil segja upp eša endurskoša ofan ķ kjölinn.


Sinn er sišur ķ landi hverju

Ung bandarķsk kona fór sem sjįlfbošališ til Senegal į vegum frišarsveitanna,Peace Corps sem eru merkar sveitir sjįlbošališa sem veita hjįlparašstoš ķ fįtękum löndum.

Frįsögn Karin McKuillan lżsir hįttum innfęddra hreinskilnislega og henni skilst aš fólkiš muni ekki svo aušveldlega breyta hįttum sķnum viš aš flytja til annars lands og setjast žar aš. Žessu fólki verši ekki hjįlpaš meš žvķ aš flytja žaš til annarra landa heldur fremur aš ašstoša žaš ķ eigin löndum meš rįšum og dįš sem varš žess valdandi aš hśn vildi fara til Senegals.

Vestręn rķki eins og Ķsland hafa gert żmsilegt til aš hjįlpa til ķ žróunarrķkjum ķ Afrķku og vķšar. Nišurstaša margra er samt sś aš ašstošin fari betur frams aš fara fram ķ löndunum sjįlfum en ekki meš žvķ aš flytja fólkiš til Vesturlanda.

Styrjaldir og óįrįn haf hinsvegar gert mörgu fólki ólķft ķ žessum löndum og žannig hafa bylgjur flóttamanna risiš hįtt

Žessar bandarķsku frišarsveitir hafa unniš mikiš hjįlparstarf ķ mörgum löndum. 

Karin varš hinsvegar žar vitni aš žeim mikla mun sem er į sišum fólks žar og ķ heimalandi hennar og hśn skynkjar  aš slķkir menningarheimar og venjur muni ekki blandaast sva aušveldlega ķ öšrum löndum eins og Bandarķkjunum sem hśn žekkir til.

Frįsögnin Karinar fer hér į eftir. (Žeir sem kjósa geta eušveldlega lesiš textann meš ašstoš Google Translate.)

What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa:  Trump Is Right!

By Karin McQuillan  January 17, 2018



Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town.  Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.  That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment"

In plain English: s--- is everywhere.  People defecate on the open ground, and the feces is blown with the dust  onto you, your clothes, your food, the water.  He warned us the first day of training: do not even touch water.  Human feces carries parasites that bore through your skin and cause organ failure.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country.  Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve it are racism.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a beautiful African woman in a grand boubou have her child defecate on the sidewalk next to Notre Dame Cathedral.  The French police officer, ten steps from her, turned his head not to see.

I have seen.  I am not turning my head and pretending unpleasant things are not true.

Senegal was not a hellhole.  Very poor people can lead happy, meaningful lives in their own cultures' terms.  But they are not our terms.  The excrement is the least of it.  Our basic ideas of human relations, right and wrong, are incompatible.

As a twenty-one-year-old starting out in the Peace Corps, I loved Senegal.  In fact, I was euphoric.  I quickly made friends and had an adopted family.  I relished the feeling of the brotherhood of man.  People were open, willing to share their lives and, after they knew you, their innermost thoughts.

The longer I lived there, the more I understood: it became blindingly obvious that the Senegalese are not the same as us.  The truths we hold to be self-evident are not evident to the Senegalese.  How could they be?  Their reality is totally different.  You can't understand anything in Senegal using American terms.

Take something as basic as family.  Family was a few hundred people, extending out to second and third cousins.  All the men in one generation were called "father."  Senegalese are Muslim, with up to four wives.  Girls had their clitorises cut off at puberty.  (I witnessed this, at what I thought was going to be a nice coming-of-age ceremony, like a bat mitzvah or confirmation.)  Sex, I was told, did not include kissing.  Love and friendship in marriage were Western ideas.  Fidelity was not a thing.  Married women would have sex for a few cents to have cash for the market.What I did witness every day was that women were worked half to death.  Wives raised the food and fed their own children, did the heavy labor of walking miles to gather wood for the fire, drew water from the well or public faucet, pounded grain with heavy hand-held pestles, lived in their own huts, and had conjugal visits from their husbands on a rotating basis with their co-wives.  Their husbands lazed in the shade of the trees.

Yemily was crucial to people there in a way Americans cannot comprehend.

The Ten Commandments were not disobeyed as they were unknown.  The value system was the exact opposite.  You were supposed to steal everything you can to give to your own relatives.  There are some Westernized Africans who try to rebel against the system.  They fail.

We hear a lot about the kleptocratic elites of Africa.  The kleptocracy extends through the whole society.  My town had a medical clinic donated by international agencies.  The medicine was stolen by the medical workers and sold to the local store.  If you were sick and didn't have money, drop dead.  That was normal.

So here in the States, when we discovered that my 98-year-old father's Muslim health aide from Nigeria had stolen his clothes and wasn't bathing him, I wasn't surprised.  It was familiar.

In Senegal, corruption ruled, from top to bottom.  Go to the post office, and the clerk would name an outrageous price for a stamp.  After paying the bribe, you still didn't know it if it would be mailed or thrown out.  That was normal.

One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides  who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working  collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.  Callousness to the sick was normal.

Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It's not.  It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture

We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It's not.  My town was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.

All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he'd go to another country.  The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The result: Everyone has nothing.

The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work  A job is something given to you by a relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

I couldn't wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.

African problems are made worse by our aid efforts  Senegal is full of smart, capable people.  They will eventually solve their own country's problems.  They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration.  They tell us we must end America as a white , Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation  to prove we are not racist.  I don't need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese  I am not willing to donate my country.


If ever there were a email that needed to be sent around the globe, this is it.  What a story this woman tells of what is actually happening in places we send our hard earned tax dollars.  We are fools to do it.

 

  All cultures do not share the same mores, ethics and standards.  Read for edification.

One of my most vivid memories was from the clinic.  One day, as the wait grew hotter in the 110-degree heat, an old woman two feet from the medical aides  who were chatting in the shade of a mango tree instead of working  collapsed to the ground.  They turned their heads so as not to see her and kept talking.  She lay there in the dirt.  Callousness to the sick was normal.

Americans think it is a universal human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  It's not.  It seems natural to us because we live in a Bible-based Judeo-Christian culture

We think the Protestant work ethic is universal.  It's not.  My town was full of young men doing nothing.  They were waiting for a government job.  There was no private enterprise.  Private business was not illegal, just impossible, given the nightmare of a third-world bureaucratic kleptocracy.  It is also incompatible with Senegalese insistence on taking care of relatives.

All the little stores in Senegal were owned by Mauritanians.  If a Senegalese wanted to run a little store, he'd go to another country.  The reason?  Your friends and relatives would ask you for stuff for free, and you would have to say yes.  End of your business.  You are not allowed to be a selfish individual and say no to relatives.  The result: Everyone has nothing.

The more I worked there and visited government officials doing absolutely nothing, the more I realized that no one in Senegal had the idea that a job means work  A job is something given to you by a relative.  It provides the place where you steal everything to give back to your family.

I couldn't wait to get home.  So why would I want to bring Africa here?  Non-Westerners do not magically become American by arriving on our shores with a visa.

For the rest of my life, I enjoyed the greatest gift of the Peace Corps: I love and treasure America more than ever.  I take seriously my responsibility to defend our culture and our country and pass on the American heritage to the next generation.

African problems are made worse by our aid efforts  Senegal is full of smart, capable people.  They will eventually solve their own country's problems.  They will do it on their terms, not ours.  The solution is not to bring Africans here.

We are lectured by Democrats that we must privilege third-world immigration by the hundred million with chain migration.  They tell us we must end America as a white , Western, Judeo-Christian, capitalist nation  to prove we are not racist.  I don't need to prove a thing.  Leftists want open borders because they resent whites, resent Western achievements, and hate America.  They want to destroy America as we know it.

As President Trump asked, why would we do that?

We have the right to choose what kind of country to live in.  I was happy to donate a year of my life as a young woman to help the poor Senegalese  I am not willing to donate my country.


If ever there were a email that needed to be sent around the globe, this is it.  What a story this woman tells of what is actually happening in places we send our hard earned tax dollars.  We are fools to do it."

Karin veršur eilķtiš pólitķsk ķ lokin og telur ekki rétt aš opna landamęri Bandarķkjanna fyrir innflytjendastraumi vegna menningarmismunarins. Hśn er ekki rasisti frekar en Trump forseti. En hśn skilur vandamįliš eins og hann gerir.

Žvķ sinn er sišur ķ hverju landi. 

 


Meiri Makrķlveiši

ķ verndarskyni fyrir okkar hefšbundnu fiskistofna.

Makrķllinn er mér sagšur elta seišin sem eru ķ miklum móš į mišunum okkar nśna. Žessu gamsar hann ķ sig sem hlżtur aš hafa įhrif į ašra nytjastofna okkar.

Hver er samsetningin į magainnihaldi Makrķlsins hér ķ sjónum? Er žetta ekki spurning um fiskivernd aš veiša žennan ręningja og afętu okkar fiskistofna ef hann er fullur af seišum?

Hvaš er ESB aš skipta sér af žvķ hvaš viš gerum į okkar mišum? Ętlar fyrst aš banna okkur aš selja žann Makrķl sem viš veišum til Rśssa og svo aš banna okkar aš verjast kvikindinu? Stjórnar ESB hvar žessi flökkustofn heldur sig?

Ętli žeir ętli aš refsa okkur fyrir Grindhvalina sem vaša į land? Eru žeir ekki hvalafrišunarsinnar?

Makrķllinn eigum viš aš veiša sem mest viš megum ķ sjįlfsvarnarskyni. 


Frį EES og Schengen til Frķverzlunar

er žaš sem ég vil stefna aš.

Ég held žvķ fram aš EES sé ekki aš fęra okkur nokkurn skapašan hlut nema ergelsi.

Öllum žeim kostum sem varšhundar samningsins og Evrópusinnarnir tönnlast į sżknt og heilagt, en geta fęstir haft į hrašbergi, tel ég aš viš myndum aušveldlega nį meš frķverzlunarsamningum. Og Schengen held ég aš viš getum alveg veriš įn eins og Bretum tókst til žessa.

Icexit śr EES er žvķ löngu oršiš tķmabęrt og aš viš veršum fullvalda frķverzlunaržjóš.


Kommarnir kveina į pening

frį rķkinu eins og alltaf.

Žóršur Snęr fer hamförum į Kjarnanum um rķkispening til aš skrifa sķnar skošanir. Sem margir gefa nś ekki mikiš fyrir.

Öll žessi įköll og jarm um rķkisstyrki eiga upptök sķn hjį RŚV. Fólkiš ķ landinu vill auglżsa hjį RŚV žar sem žaš apparat hefur śtbreišslu sem žaš nęr sér ķ meš rķkisstyrk.

Ef RŚV er skoriš nišur aš einhverju leyti ķ auglżsingastrķšinu žį er bśiš aš jafna ašstöšuna og žaš žarf ekkert aš vera aš borga kommum og kveinstafafólki sem langar til aš śtbreiša sķnar skošanir sérstaklega til žess.

Žeir verša bara aš nį sér ķ auglżsingar til aš borga kostnašinn. Sem er hörku djobb get ég sagt ykkur. 

Ég hef dundaš viš žaš aš gefa śt blöš ķ samkeppni. Bęši lengi  į vegum Sjįlfstęšisflokksins, VOGA ķ Kópavogi,  og svo sem śtgįfu- og ritrępufķkill sem ég er alveg eins og eins og Žóršur Snęr žó minna duglegur sé. Mér til skemmtunar nś sķšast 1-2 tölublöš į įri af Sįmi fóstra og dreift um mestalla landsbyggšina.

Žetta hefst ekki nema meš blóši svita og tįrum get ég sagt ykkur. Og mašur er heppinn ef mašur getur lįtiš endana mętast įn fastra starfskrafta,styrkja eša hluthafa, sem enginn grundvöllur er til aš rįša,  heldur bara meš tilfallandi verktökum og vinum sem er ekki aušvelt aš nį vegna žess hversu erfitt verkiš er.

Aldrei hefur mér dottiš ķ hug aš rķkiš ętti aš borga mér fyrir žetta brölt.

Hobbżblašiš mitt,Sįmur fóstri, hefur samt komiš śt ķ eitthvaš hįlfri milljón eintaka sem fólk hefur tekiš fagnandi.Blašiš skuldar samt hvergi neitt eins og sumir ašrir.

Žetta er allt ķ  samkeppni viš RŚV, Fréttablašiš, Moggann,  alveg eins og kommarnir į Kjarnanum segjast vera ķ.

Blašiš mitt kemur einfaldlega ekki śt nema viš séum bśnir aš tryggja aš geta borgaš allan kostnašinn meš auglżsingum. Svo einfalt er žaš.

Viš stofnum ekki fyrst til skulda og grenjum svo į rķkiš aš borga okkur kaup.

Śtvarp Saga berst nįkvęmlega svona barįttu. Žaš sękir sinn styrk til almennings sem styrkir og auglżsir. Žaš er fólkiš sem ręšur žvķ hvort žaš vill styrkja stöšina.

En SÖGU finnst mér oftar meira gaman aš hlusta į en Gufuna sem ég borga hvort sem ég vil eša ekki. Og Hringbraut hjį žeim Sigmundi Erni og Lindu Blöndal er hreint frįbęr stöš.  Žaš vęri skömm ef žessar góšu stöšvar létu menntamįlarįšherra mśta sér af žvķ bara aš RŚV fįi of mikiš.

Žaš žarf bara aš hreinsa kommerķiš śt af fréttastofu RŚV til aš sętta landsmenn viš žetta apparat, sem trślega landsmönnum finnst samt aš verši aš vera žarna meš nefskatti. RŚV heldur lķka śti frįbęrri starfsemi meš klassķsku efni alla daga sem léttir mörgum manni og einmana lķfiš og rifjar upp gamla og góša daga. Fyrir žaš er ég žakklįtur RŚV og kommunum žar.

Ef ekki vęri žessi pólitķski ófrišur sķfellt um fréttastofuna, žį truflar RŚV ekki mig ķ minni śtgįfu. Og frįleitt finnst mér aš ég eigi aš fara borga kommunum į Kjarnanum fyrir aš skrifa žaš sem žeim dettur ķ hug sem ég nenni nś ekki mikiš aš lesa žar sem žeir höfša ekki til mķn sem Trumpista.

Allt ķ lagi aš minnka ašstöšumuninn eitthvaš. En ekki kveina um rķkisstyrki handa śtgįfufķklum og blekbullurum eins og algengt er aš byltingarmenn séu frį Robespierre og Marat til mķn og  Žóršar Snęs og Péturs og Arnžrśšar. 


Icexit

er fariš aš žrżsta į hugann žess lengra sem ESB seilist į grundvelli EES samningsins sem žaš tślkar einhliša sér ķ hag.

Er ekki kominn tķmi į aš endurskoša EES ferliš ķ heild sinni? Segja jafnvel žessum gamla samningi alveg upp og taka til viš tvķhliša samninga žar sem žörf gerist? 

Verša frjįls og fullvalda aftur meš Icexit.
