Goodbye conservacunts!

The Norwegian Labour Party won the election. 8 long years of the conservacunts are over. I'm so happy!

Now, please keep your fingers crossed for us here in Canada. Our election is in a week.

A conservative in Norway is still quite different from a conservative in the UK, Canada, or the US.

Norway's Conservative Party strongly supports EU membership, for example. They support same-sex marriage and the Nordic-scale welfare state. Their main distinction these days is in a push for lower taxes and privatization of state-owned industries. They're still more progressive than the Republicans, the CPC, and the Tories of Boris.

R3 = conservacunt. Conservatives in Norway are not that different from the US. They still believe in trickle down and austerity. They made life hell for the poor during those 8 years with cut in public services, welfare checks etc. Meanwhile they gave millions in tax cuts to their rich friends, while the poor suffered. Fuck them. Can't stand them. The number of poor people grew while they were in charge. Not surprisingly.

[quote] They still believe in … austerity.

Austerity means—.

1. Keeping to a budget.

2. Not demanding that someone else pay the bills.

R4 That's in a country where you still have top-tier health care at a cost of $264 per year, where most jobs are protected by strong unions, where the state keeps a massive "piggy bank" of unspent tax dollars and oil revenues to top off social programs in need, where unemployed workers can collect a check for two years after losing their job, where universities are free, and where even the cruelest politicians still support a strong welfare state. Even with those cuts, Norway's poor are still miles ahead of anyone who's poor in the rest of the world.

But those poor Norwegian poors. Their checks are still the most generous in the Western world, but they still have plenty to complain about and fear from Erna's friends.

The Europeans - especially the Nordic socialists - won't get much sympathy from the rest of the world for their internal social and economic woes.

What? You might have to work more than 32 hours per week? You only get four weeks of paid vacation every year? You might have to pay $5 for a hip replacement surgery? Oh, the horror! How WILL you survive such cruelty?

What you call "Austerity," the rest of us call a normal life. Tell your story to those Syrian and Somalian refugees you're always whining about. See how they feel about the stuff you consider a hardship.

Do you want to migrate somewhere, R4?

Where would you like to migrate to?

R6 We don't have top tier health care anymore, with what the conservacunts did to fuck it up. They cut the public services and privatized part of it it so the rich can pay for better health care.

R5 and R6 is the same person. He is a conservacunt who wants to see poor people suffer while the rich get millions in tax cuts. Well, conservacunt, you lost. People are tired of increasing inequality. The rich get richer while the poor get poorer. The socialist side beat the conservacunts by a mile. Even Rødt, the socialist/communist party gained 7 mps. People are sick of conservacunts prioritizing their richs friends while everyone else is suffering. Taste this number: 100 vs 68. The parliament is more socialist than it has been in many many years.

Awww, you got some service cuts? Norway still has better health insurance than almost every other country on Earth, even with Erna's small cuts.

You're talking to a country where an ambulance ride can send a person into bankruptcy, where seniors sell their family jewels to afford heart medication, and people have to beg strangers on the internet for donations to afford a heart transplant for their sick child. Don't whine to us about your health care coverage becoming marginally less perfect.

What a great news, girls. I was so excited last night that I started baking late into the night! Who wants a slice of my celebratory Gerfloogenbeørnebærflüffen?

Conservatives seem to be in retreat globally. Good riddance.

Good read from Bloomberg about the election.
