It will come as no surprise that the ‘times of plenty’ are over. As country after country feels the pinch of growing economic debt, people are taking to the streets to demonstrate about their loss of earnings, and the reductions in social services. Governments are floundering in an ever-increasing spiral of debt as they try to strike a balance between the demands of the people, and balancing the nations budget.

U.S. National Debt

Just today even the mighty United States had its credit rating reduced for the first time in history, and if that has happened, you can bet the world economic crisis is only just beginning.

'The Game' Curse

Part of the problem is, we have had it so good for so many years we have gotten use to it. Instead of the usual holiday to Spain we went further afield, and we could buy an iPad, even though we didn’t really need it. Our living rooms sport a fancy 46″ HDTV because suddenly the old one just wasn’t good enough. The kids all have computers, X-Box and PlayStation games which they spend every waking minute playing. Our homes have become filled with ‘nice to have’ items because we could afford it. But now all that is changed! The people of Greece, Spain, and other countries are out on the streets demonstrating because they do not wish to lose this standard of living.

For sure, there are among them people who find it hard to make ends meet, and in today’s climate they will be hardest hit, but many of those demonstrating are middle-class people who fall into the above bracket. Not one of these well-off earners would for example, voluntarily give up 5% of their salary in taxes to ease the debt crisis and help the needy. They care little if the social services cannot afford to look after poor families, just so long as their standard of living does not deteriorate.

Greece National Debt

We have become so used to our lifestyle of plenty that we do not want to see it slip away, but I have news for you folks: It’s over! There is no way the world economies, especially western ones, can continue to throw money around. National debts are rising day by day and eventually the crunch has to come.

People have to realise they cannot have everything, and many families must wake up to the fact they cannot afford to run three or four cars in the family. As for the exotic holiday to Florida? Forget it! It is not until everyone gets used to the idea that we must all tighten our belts and not expect so much from life, that the crisis will eventually be overcome.

Italian National Debt

Most western nations have become an ‘I want’ culture, and we have become used to doing as little as possible to get what we want. After so many years of plenty it is perhaps time we were brought down to earth, and how hard we hit the ground is up to us really. We all have to realise that times are very hard and it is only by everyone making a sacrifice that we will overcome it.

National Debts Across The World

Get your children used to the idea that you will not be spending huge amounts at Christmas to buy them the lavish gifts they have become so used to. So if you can’t buy a new car and have to spend your next holiday in some place not so far away, don’t complain, accept it as part of your contribution to getting the world economy back on its feet.

Remember, all the people demonstating in the streets on Athens, Madrid and Rome will not get the economy back on its feet. Governments can only spend money they do not have up to a certain limit, and then its time to pay the piper; literally!

Confused about how we got into this situation? The following video will explain it all:

The French Roma Deportations – Are They Justified?

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Modern World, Police, Spain, Theft, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 14/09/2010 by floroy1942

For over a week the papers and news bulletins have been loaded with criticism of The French governments deportation of Gypsies (Roma) back to Romania, and now the EU Executive Body has thrown its ten-cents into the pot.

Just Another Sanctimonious Politician

The EU Justice Commisioner, Vivienne Reding called the whole affair “disgusting, and is endorsing legal action against the government of France. My only reaction is to say, she obviously has never had a Gypsy encampment near her home, and neither have any of the rest of them.

I find all this ‘Bleeding Heart’ sympathy for the Gypsies to be naive in the extreme, and am quite sure none of these idiots have ever had any dealings with the Roma population of Europe.

The Traditional Idea of Gypsies

Say what you like about discrimination, but these people are born beggars, thieves and pickpockets and have been the scourge of this continent for hundreds of years. It is only in fairly recent years that the plague has spread to the United States to a much smaller degree. It is a proven fact that as soon as Roma Gypsies move into an area the crime rate rockets for burglary, car theft and pick-pocketing. The police know this, but are powerless to stop it.

Blatant stealing of a laptop:

But by far the biggest targets for Gypsies are tourists in all of Europe’s major cities. Just use the following link to watch a film-clip from YouTube and you will know exactly what I mean. There are dozens more on the page on the same topic.

Report on gypsy children being forced to beg:

Caught on Camera

Madrid has a particularly large Roma community and according to the police, as many as 95% of the children caught committing crimes in the city are from this segment of the community. A favourite sting is for one to distract a customer using a bank ATM while a second will snatch the money as it exits the machine and run. It is a very common crime in Madrid and thousands of unwary victims have had their money stolen from under their noses. One young Gypsy girl told a news reporter she could make €300 in a single snatch. One of the problems with Spanish law is that these children cannot be prosecuted because they are too young and usually handed over to a care centre, which lets them go.

What most of these ‘Goody Goody’ politicians don’t seem to realise is that it’s ordinary people who are the victims of these crooks, not the fancy hierarchy in their ivory towers! It’s people like you and me who have their houses and cars broken into and end up the targets of the pickpockets. I am sure they would change their tune and not be so high and mighty with their fancy principals if they were.

Light FIngers

No matter which way you look at it, the Gypsies are a band of professional thieves and always have been. I have been to Romania myself many times and seen how they operate first-hand, I was even robbed once myself so I know what I am talking about. Children are forced to beg as soon as they are old enough to walk, and forced to steal as soon as they are old enough to run.

Self Explanatory

The one thing that has changed over time is that gangs have in many instances taken over much of the control of the thieving throughout Europe by the Gypsy community. Many now work for bosses still residing in Romania where they live in huge expensive villas. Girls are often kept as slaves by these individuals and put to work as soon as they are old enough.

Those children not connected with the gangs are forced into it by their own parents and/or relatives and have no choice in the matter. The following BBC report should be sufficient to convince even the most sceptical! You will find the BBC video clip most enlightening!

There are misguided individuals among us who think the Gypsies are discriminated against and have no real chance at a normal life, this I can assure you is pure bullshit, at least for the reasons the ‘bleeding heart brigade’ give.

Beggar – A Common Sight

These people have been wanderers throughout their entire history and are such through choice, its as simple as that. The elders will not allow their offspring to attend a school for the simple reason it is more often than not, the children who provide them with their income, and it would force them to stay in one place. You have to remember that thieving is a lifestyle that suits their nomadic life; they move in, take everything of value, and move on before they can be caught.

Whatever you may think of human rights, persecution, discrimination and the like, the Roma love to portray themselves as victims of all these things for the simple reason it gets them what they want.

Modern Gypsy Caravan

As a final note let me say that not all Gypsies are like those portrayed above. I know many in Romania who have integrated into society and are hard workers, many are well educated. To these people I take my hat off for the simple reason they have broken the mould and become constructive and decent members of a modern society no matter in what country they live.

You may or may not be happy about the deportations taking place in France, and which could soon be repeated in Italy, but whichever side of the fence you are on, if you come in direct contact with these people you may well change your mind. I hope for your sake you never do.

Roy.
