L’homme qui organise les blocs Économie En Vidéos Europe Gauchistan

L’histoire de la Russie en 6 minutes 48 secondes sur un air de Tétris ! Presque aussi bon que « Fear the Boom and Bust » a Hayek vs. Keynes Rap Anthem.

To Moscow I came seeking fortune
But they’re making me work til I’m dead
The bourgeoisie have it so easy
The Tsar’s putting gold on his bread
The people of Moscow are hungry
But think what a feast there could be
If we could create a socialist state
That cared for the people like me:

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That descend upon me from up above.
They come down and I spin them around
Til they fit in the ground like hand in glove.
Sometimes it seems that to move blocks is fine
And the lines will be formed as they fall –
Then I see that I have misjudged it!
I should not have nudged it after all.
Can I have a long one please?
Why must these infernal blocks tease?

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That continue to fall from up above.
Come Muscovite! Let the workers unite!
A collective regime of peace and love.
I work so hard in arranging the blocks
But the landlord and taxman bleed me dry
But the workers will rise! We will not compromise
For we know that the old regime must die.
Long live Lenin, kill the tsar!
We salute the sickle and star!

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That continue to fall from up above.
The food on your plate now belongs to the state
A collective regime of peace and love.
I have no choice in arranging the blocks
Under Bolshevik rule, what they say goes.
The rule of the game is we all are the same
And my blocks must create unbroken rows.
Long live Stalin! He loves you!
Sing these words, or you know what he’ll do…

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That are made by the men in Kazakhstan.
They come two weeks late and they don’t tessellate
But we’re working to Stalin’s five year plan.
I am the man who arranges the tanks
That will make all the Nazis keep away
The Fuhrer is dead, and Europe is Red!
Let us point all our guns at the USA.
We shall live forever more!
We can start a nuclear war!

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That are building a highly secret base.
Hip hip hurrah for the USSR!HIP
We are sending our men to outer space.
I work so hard in arranging the blocks
But each night I go home to my wife in tears –
What’s the point of it all, when you’re building a wall
And in front of your eyes it disappears?
Pointless work for pointless pay
This is one game I shall not play.

I am the man who arranges the blocks!
But tomorrow I think I’ll stay in bed.
The winter is cold, I’ve got plenty of gold
And I’m standing in line for a loaf of bread
Maybe we’d be better off
If we brought down Gorbachev

I am the man who arranges the blocks
That continue to fall from up above.
The markets are free! So much money for me!
Tell me, why should I care for peace and love?
The markets are free! So much money for me!
Tell me, why should I care for peace and love?
Peace and love, peace and love!

And now the wall is down, the Marxists frown
There’s foreign shops all over town
When in Red Square, well don’t despair
There’s Levi’s and McDonald’s there
The US gave us crystal meth
And Yeltsin drank himself to death
But now that Putin’s put the boot in,
Who’ll get in our way?

So we reject free enterprise
And once again the left will rise.
Prepare the flags to be unfurled
For we’re seceding from the world:
We shall regain the Georgian soil
We shall obtain the Arctic oil
We shall arrange the blocks and toil
Forever and a day.

Game over.

Les conspirationnistes Coup de gueule États-Unis Hétu Watch

ConspirationnisteUn sondage publié cette semaine fait état que 34% des républicains pensent qu’Obama est un musulman.  Il va de soi que les pro-démocrates en ont profité pour dire que ce résultat s’explique par le simple fait que les républicains seraient des imbéciles, des rednecks et des racistes.

Pour ceux qui l’auraient oublié, quand Bush était président, entre 35% et 42% des démocrates pensaient que Bush était impliqué dans les attentats du 11 septembre.

Bref, ces sondages démontrent uniquement que plus un président est impopulaire, plus le terreau est fertile pour les conspirationnistes.

The Hill

48 out of 50 states have lost jobs since stimulus
The Hill

House Ways and Means ranking member Dave Camp (R-Mich.) on Friday released data complied by his office that shows 48 out of 50 states have lost jobs since the February 2009 enactment of the economic stimulus bill.

« While Democrats promised their 2009 stimulus would create 3.7 million jobs, the reality is far different, » stated a release from Camp’s office. « To date, 2.6 million jobs, including 2.5 million private sector jobs, have been lost. »

According to the report, only Alaska and North Dakota have experienced positive job growth since early 2009. The District of Columbia also saw an increase in hiring during that period. The report from Camp came on the heels of a Labor Department report on Thursday that showed jobless claims increased last week to 500,000, up 12,000 from the week’s prior total of 488,000. Jobless claims have increased in four of the past five weeks.

The hiring trend could frustrate White House attempts to show the stimulus package has been successful in creating jobs. The administration in June launched a six-week « recovery summer » campaign touting the achievements of the stimulus.
