Attack of The Puritans

Since they are no longer able to offer Marxist economics, and sexual freedoms are the norm, the left has struggled to find a role. With every passing year, it is clear that the role is that of the Puritan. The left hate fun and they hate freedom. Green politics has been a major boon for them, allowing them to ban all kinds of things as well as increasing taxes (for the planet of course).
As global cheerleader for the left, the EU has been at the forefront of multinational nannying. Their latest target is alcohol.

Finland (Current EU President) wants EU-wide laws in place by 2010 to ban alcohol ads before the 9pm watershed as well as sports sponsorship deals such as Budweiser's association with the World Cup. The £28m deal with Fifa covers the South Africa 2010 and 2014 tournaments as well as Germany 2006. Other proposals in the commission's strategy against binge drinking include controls on the prices of alcohol and discount offers as well as health warnings on alcoholic drinks.
Now many countries already have tyrannical approaches to alcohol, but on a country basis these are always reversable. Now these bastards want to control the price of alcoholic beverages, on a European Scale!!!!!!
They also want to ban sponsorship by drinks companies. Imagine sports without alcohol sponsorship. Where would they find alternative sources of cash?
Oliver Cromwell made the people of Britain miserable with his Puritan revolution. He banned everything that was pleasurable and fun. But the reign of his philosophy was limited. We should make sure that history repeats itself.

I am trying to think of the perfect phrase that would get me arrested in the EU. Something like Jesus was a pot smoking surfer and Jimi Hendrix told him that the "Holocaust" was a fabrication of a 1945 Stars and Stripes editorial.

More...Most of this is a byproduct of allowing women to vote. For that matter so is Socialism and Communism. Big mistake in my opinion.

France Sucks

Just because we treat dangerous criminals better than visiting heads of state, don't be misled.

Thought crimes are far more seriously punished.

Back not so long ago, women were far more likely to vote conservative.

In Denmark - voice support for the muslim cartoons. While you probably wouldn't be arrested, you would be murdered first.

I am jealeous. Interesting how the Kyoto taxes have already doubled air fares despite no real reduction in CO2. Free money in the name of the environment. I am sure they will never close the Austrian toll booths for Kyoto. Drive though Austria. You will spend 10% of your time idling at checkpoints or toll booths.

The Danes just piss these animals off and they come kill us because their numbers are larger here. When they finally control the streets they will control Holland. Hitler was prophetic about this himself. The Police here are worthless except for issuing free speech and incitement fines.

An excellent post. So good in fact, I've pinched the subject for a post on my blog.
I've credited you, so I hope this is OK.
