Ebonics dis here

29 Aug

(This post contains language which may be offensive to some readers. In other words, I say fuck. Deal.)

What a sad, sad state the US has come to when they have to hire people who are fluent in Ebonics to help nab criminals. I mean, fo’ real tho, sheeit. How fucked up is The States that they now have to have people who speak this “language” (notice the quotes) in government business? That is some whacked out shit, but I have complete and total faith in the US. I mean, if any country can fuck up a language, the US can, you got to give them that.

(fade into a memory)I remember walking through Atlanta airport, asking someone for directions and not only did this lady have the most unreal hair I have ever seen (it was shaped like a weaved hat) but she spoke some fucked up version of English (must have been Ebonics) and I told her, “Sorry, but could you repeat that, in English(and yes I emphasized it like a smart ass, would you expect any less out of me?) and she got mad (fade out of a memory).

Sorry, but if you are working with the public, then the public needs to understand you. Gawd, I sound racist, but you know what, I don’t give a crap because this is how I feel. Why do people feel the need to butcher a language to the point that they are completely incomprehensible. People need to understand you and when you speak like you don’t have any common sense or any grasp of the English language, not only do you look dumb, but you make your race (what ever it may be), your nationality (whatever it maybe be) and your employer look  ignorant.

Personally, I think it is a poor excuse for not paying attention in school and not grasping even the simplest part of the language—proper pronunciation. As far as I know, there isn’t a form of Ebonics in any other language. It is called “Black English”, “Black vernacular”, “Black dialect” or, my personal preference and therefore my favourite name for it, “Substandard English”.
Yes, substandard.

(dramatic pause)

All I have to say is this: it says something about the “language” Ebonics when the job opening is for the DEA.

Awesome!

Remind me not to move to Atlanta.

Are the UK and the EU the "new communist threat"?

Are the UK and the EU the “new communist threat”?

this story (published here) was due to be published here too however a slight mishap of forgotten username slowed this down (so the story is three days old now).

A story in quotes.

Vladimir Bukovksy, the 63-year old former Soviet dissident, fears that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union. In a speech he delivered in Brussels last week Mr Bukovsky called the EU a “monster” that must be destroyed, the sooner the better, before it develops into a fullfledged totalitarian state.
Former Soviet Dissident Warns For EU Dictatorship

Here is an excerpt from that self same article:

PB: But all these countries that joined the European Union did so voluntarily.

VB: No, they did not. Look at Denmark which voted against the Maastricht treaty twice. Look at Ireland [which voted against the Nice treaty]. Look at many other countries, they are under enormous pressure. It is almost blackmail. Switzerland was forced to vote five times in a referendum. All five times they have rejected it, but who knows what will happen the sixth time, the seventh time. It is always the same thing. It is a trick for idiots. The people have to vote in referendums until the people vote the way that is wanted. Then they have to stop voting. Why stop? Let us continue voting. The European Union is what Americans would call a shotgun marriage.

But it’s not just the EU that is heading that way – the UK is doing it all by herself.

…they arrest a woman for reciting the names of British troops killed in Iraq in an otherwise peaceful protest near the Cenotaph. Maya Evans, who had fallen foul of a clause in the Serious and Organised Crime and Police Act, was duly convicted last week, given a conditional discharge and left with a criminal record.

But that’s not all.

Then, an author taking part in a broadcast discussion about gay adoptions was telephoned by a policewoman and informed that her name had been noted following a complaint that she had made a “homophobic” remark on air.

If that were all you could laugh but: EU aims to criminalise Holocaust denial. So now if I were to make sick jokes about the Nazi’s and the Jews I’m for the chop, but if I make sick jokes about the USSR I am fine. Furthermore if I incite hated about minorities I am doomed but if I do so about large enough groups I am theoretically safe.

Under this law Muslim (or other minority) extremists could potentially stir up war against the west but western extremists may not retaliate.

Sound fair to me – NOT!

Laws that make denying or trivialising the Holocaust a criminal offence punishable by jail sentences will be introduced across the European Union, according to a proposal expecting to win backing from ministers Thursday.

Offenders will face up to three years in jail under the proposed legislation, which will also apply to inciting violence against ethnic, religious or national groups.

Is anyone else wondering if any other country might be a safe place to live?

I’m frightened enough to want to expatriate away as soon as I can.

More analysis of the story.

However as reported by the BBC the new law (passed today) has “stopped short of a blanket ban on Holocaust denial“.

However, trends being what they are, where will it end? Where could a family go to be safe?
