If the PIGS collapse, who gets the bacon?

(The following post is simply a way of speaking out loud. As such, it’s mostly BS. But not the stuff at the beginning– that’s pretty good.)

First off, bravo to Mr. Nigel Farage for this:

I mean it. This is the sort of thing these EU Trash should be hearing non-stop until they curl into fetal positions begging for Daddy Soros for a nookie.

The PIGS, for those who don’t know, are Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. I first ran across this acronym about 9 months ago, and it stood for the EU member states in the most troubling positions. “Watch,” people said. “When one falls, the others will fall like dominoes, and there goes Europe.”

Well, Greece fell. Now Ireland’s falling. Next come, as Mr. Farage notes, Portugal and Spain. All the little piggies falling away, but I doubt very many will enjoy much bacon from this. Europe falls as a result, and if the people who put them in this position still retain power, they won’t rise any time soon, since those people have proven themselves to be absolute wastes of space.

North America is clearly troubled. In America, The Obama Regime’s Dept. Homeland Security has begun seizing websites that had nothing to do with homeland security. There’s rumblings about the Pigford Settlement, and people hope things hold out long enough for Congressman Issa to start some serious investigations. All this on top of the struggling economy is leaving us in a wealth of unsurety.

Asia is likewise troubled, though it’s harder to tell with them. China and Japan own most of the US debt, and while that gives them some advantage over the US, it’ll be shortlived until whatever coming reshuffling is pretty much done– at which point, we’ll see how things stand then. China and Russia recently agreed to drop the US Dollar in deals between each other, but many analysts think that this doesn’t mean much. I agree that for now it means little, but if other countries decide to go the same route, the problem may cascade.

South America and Africa have few countries to fill the gaps in power. Brazil might take some, maybe. Iran will try to step in, but I don’t know that they’ve the social unity to keep that power for long. North Korea wants the power, but their population is literally eating itself, so who the crap knows what they’ll do. They might re-start the war with South Korea, but unlesss China backs them, they’ll get their asses beat, nukes notwithstanding. Too many people just want to crush that whole family like bugs.

So, if Europe, Asia, and the US fall to pieces, that leaves. . . Iran, Saudi Arabia, SE Asia, Brazil, and Canada. At best.

Well, good luck with that. . . At least the Canadians are generally decent people with good beer and maple syrup. Hopefully, they’d annex us before the Mexican Drug Gangs take over.

Or. . .

We could, I dunno, fight back or somethin’ . . . just saying . . .

Moderation has been eased. For now. Don't be dunderheads.
