Facebook madness

Gawain Towler of England Expects has the latest absurdity coming from the halls of Brussels. Some bint named Nessa Childers wants the EUnion to legislate against possible Facebook addiction.

No, this is not me or Gawain kidding. This is for real.
There has been an explosion in the usage of this online social networking tool across Europe: unfortunately many people have crossed the line from social networking to social dysfunction. This is a real health issue and I am calling upon the Commission to take action.

Visiting your Facebook page frequently actually causes what psychologists refer to as ‘intermittent reinforcement’. Notifications, messages and invitations reward you with an unpredictable high, much like gambling. That anticipation can get dangerously addictive. Many people access their Facebook page once or twice a week; however, for others it has turned into a compulsion — and it is a compulsion to dissociate yourself from your real world and go and live in the Facebook world.

Moderate usage is not a problem at all for most people, however some people do not seem to realise that it is not real life.
So far so 'Hahah'.

But the final two lines of MEP Childers' written question put into sharp, chilling focus what mess we got ourselves into:
With the passing into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU now has increased powers to legislate when there is a threat to public health in Europe. Will the Commission submit proposals to Parliament to address this growing threat to the mental health of European citizens?
Telegraph columnist Ed West: That ringing in your ears is the sounds of alarm bells coming from the direction of Brussels.

Just let these words sink in for a moment:  With the passing into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU now has increased powers to legislate... Then look up Articles 3, 4 and 6 in the consolidated version of the Turnip. Finally, return to the words of Mrs. Childers: With the passing into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU now has increased powers to legislate... anything it wants (h/t Witterings from Witney).

And it was our own establishment, our own politicians and journalists, that sold us out to this madness, this unaccountable monster. So, the reason we are not executing the lot of them is...?

Harry, thanks.

DP: Hey, I posed the question. If I had my way, anyone involved in sweeping the referendum result under the rug would be prosecuted for high treason, dereliction of duty, gross misconduct, abuse of office and anything else I could think of that relates to the betrayal of the Dutch that these cretins committed.

I cannot think of how to punish people, who have betrayed their country in such a gross manner. It is not just the country as a physical entity that they have betrayed, but far worse. I can imagine a betrayal of the Dutch to the Flems or even the French. Such a betrayal is political, and for such an act of treachery, the customary punishment used to be a hanging. Though the treachery is still treachery, it does not betray the culture of Europe. If the betrayal was to the French, apart from culinary and some such, their wont be much change. The essence of 'European' in the wider sense, remains unchanged.

But what we have in Europe at the moment is a betrayal of Europe to an ideology that is against the national character, culture and historic entity of Europe. Such a betrayal cannot be reversed easily. Even a betrayal to the Nazi does not constitute as a great a betrayal as the ones engaged by the EU
and its local apparatchiks.

So KV, what punishment can one devise for a crime so horrenduous? A crime against not just the people but to the culture and historic identity of the people of Europe.

The reason that the EU elite and its local apparatchiks get away with crimes far worse then just murder is that the population takes it, and does nothing.

If they rampaged through the cities, hunting for the politicos that betrayed them, you will find that the politicians will start to be keenly aware of the fragility of their skins. For atleast a generation henceforth, the politicians will be mindful.

Must view

Dr. Richard L. Rubinstein, Yale fellow, “Distinguished Professor of the Year”, and Harvard Phd, states that president Obama’s intention is to “correct the historical mistake of the creation of the state of Israel.” Dr. Rubenstein states that president Obama due to his family heritage is extremely pro Muslim – to the point of “wanting to see the destruction of Israel.”

The war that is being waged on Israel and the rest of the West by a Muslim population that has been imported to the West, is now so great a danger, that I don't see anyway except a war that will remove this threat from Europe.

Heaven help us.Our political elite have created 27 potential Bosnias in the EU.
