Hitler reacts to Hitler’s Downfall’s downfall

You’ve probably heard of the Hitler’s Downfall parodies being removed from YouTube by now.

Well Adolf isn’t happy!

Watch it while you still can.


Hawke, Howard agree: abolish state governments

And that doesn’t necessarily mean shifting almost all of the power to the federal mob.

“If we were starting this country again, you wouldn’t have states you’d have regions,” Mr Howard said to applause.

“Over time, I hope the states have less and less authority.”

And Hawke agrees.

“We should keep the boundaries for the purposes of Sheffield Shield cricket and State of Origin . . . but that’s it.”

Howard and Hawke were in opposite chairs at the 5th Oxford Business Alumni Forum in Sydney, yesterday.

This follows a recent poll that shows four out of ten Aussies want state governments abolished.


PS On a side note, the fact that Hawke and Howard got on pretty well at the gabfest reminds me of when Clinton and Bush held a similar event.

US will clash with Iranian paramilitary: prediction

So says the Pentagon. The Iranian Qods force is boosting it’s numbers in Venezuala, whilst still maintaining it’s supplies to the likes of the Taliban, Hezbollah, and basically any other terrorist you can find. And a recently declassified report (you can find it through the first link – pdf), even predicts Iran will have ICBMs capable of reaching the US by 2015. And they’ve being getting helped out by North Korea and China, both nuclear-capable countries. In fact, there’s a good chance North Korea could test its third nuclear bomb soon.

So the question is: why don’t we take action, already?

Michael Mann: feeling the heat?

He’s threatening to sue. The No-Cap-and-Trade Coalition tells him to bring it on. And all this over a global warming spoof video.

Washington, DC — Penn State University’s Michael Mann, one of the central figures in the Climategate scandal, has threatened legal action against Minnesotans for Global Warming (M4GW) over the group’s popular satirical YouTube video “Hide the Decline.” The No Cap-and-Trade Coalition, a group that includes M4GW, responded today at an event at the National Press Club, releasing Mann’s threatening letter and an updated version of the “Hide the Decline” video.

Unfortunately, that one’s been blocked, too. Someone’s touchy, heheh.
