How unions destroyed America

Unions destroy civilizations the same way Communism does: reward before performance. This incentivizes participation but not effectiveness, and creates a society that is favorable to parasites, thus breeds more of them.

Check out this rant from Craigslist:Detroit that explains this problem in detail:

UNIONS MADE DETROIT GO BANKRUPT!

WTF, IF YOU WANT TO WORK FOR $28/H AND YOU DONT WANA WORK FOR $14/H THEN ALL JOBS WENT TO CHINA AND MEXICO. HOW DO U FEEL NOW? WHY UNIONS INTIMIDATE COMPANIES IN DETROIT, WTF? WHAT KIND OF ORGANIZED CRIME ORGANIZATION IS THIS? IF U WORK FOR THE UNION U CANT GET FIRED ! WHY UNIONS CONTROL THE WAGES? WHAT KIND OF MAFIA IN A UNIFORM IS THIS? IF I WORK FOR THE UNION I CAN HAVE COFFEE WITH WHISKEY FOR LUNCH AND THEY STILL WILL NOT FIRE ME!

OH WELL, SO THEY SENT JOBS TO CHINA COS I DIDNT WANA WORK FOR $14/H , NOW I AM ON FOOD STAMPS , EVERYTHING I BUY IS MADE IN CHINA. DO YOU THINK I CAN GET MY MEDICAL AND DENTAL FROM THE GOVERNMENT? OOPS, THEY SHUT DOWN :(

i should get depressed cos i have no job and start smoking weed , i hope they legalize weed, so i can get high and forget that all jobs went to mexico and china , i live in a bankrupt city, my government is shutdown, THEY EVEN CLOSED THE MEMORIAL, I NEED TO GET DRUNK, SO I CAN FORGET EVERYTHING!

Because Metal Is Art



Sadistic Metal Reviews 01-12-14

What are Sadistic Metal Reviews? Music is art when it has something to say, entertainment when it’s distracting. Since none of us have infinite time, we pick the best and strongest music we can and mock the rest. The path to true metal is littered with sweet, sweet poseur tears and the occasional gem of non-failure, a secret delight for the wary traveler…

Interview with Steve Cefala (Dawning)

Welcome to the strange and protean world of Steve Cefala, black/doom metal musician, MMA fighter, former adult entertainment actor, and now, the force behind the returning Dawning and its unique brand of slow melodic metal with horror movie keyboards.

Dawning was born in 1996 at the hands of Mr. Cefala and a close cadre of collaborators. Dormant for many years, but never forgotten, the band was resurrected with the – – –/Dawning split that showcased a classic song for the band and gave it new arrangement and orchestration.

We were lucky to catch up with Mr. Cefala between his many high-energy ventures and get in a few words about the split, the history of Dawning, and its future both as band and concept.

Agonized – Gods…

Not every band from the frozen north aimed for melodic and energetic interpretations of death metal; many, like fellow Finns Belial or the Swedes in Obscurity, chose instead to write grinding cudgels of primitive bass noise that sounded like a winter avalanche of the soul overtaking all hope. Agonized created a six-song demo in this vein and sadly were lost to time after that point.

Narcotic Wasteland – “Shackles of Sobriety”

Nile guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade has unveiled his new project Narcotic Wasteland with the debut of their self-titled album today and the release of a sample song, “Shackles of Sobriety.”

Based on this song, it’s clear the album comes from the modern metal camp and not the death metal camp. It starts with an impressive melodic metal introduction, then drops into the trademark of modern metal, which is Pantera-influenced vocals leading the guitars, reversing the classic death metal formula. Thus most of what you hear is vocal rhythm with guitar keeping constant texture on the backdrop, not guitar leading and vocals filling in secondary texture as all the best death metal bands did.

This creates a “rant effect” which makes me want to scream “Are you talkin’ to me?” at the screen.

Interview with Joe Gonzalez (Cruxiter)

To those who have watched metal for some time, it presents a paradox. To the public, it seems like a railroad, where a line of cars stops and then we see what is in each, one at a time. To an experienced watcher, it more resembles an ocean, with currents swirling below and influenced by air above, and periodically the crest of a wave emerges before being dragged down by the rest, obliterated and recycled.

One of the warmer undercurrents in the metal ocean is “true metal,” which is that which stays true to the solid line of evolution leading from metal’s origin. As part of this movement, bands across the globe are continuing to make music that we associate with earlier decades, except that it’s newly created and generated from a contemporary impulse if not contemporary influences. Cruxiter, a Texas heavy metal/guitar rock band, is part of this movement.

The funderground evaporates and metal goes underground

Blue skied days make me think of aliens landing amongst us like in the old science fiction films. Except this time, the aliens are disappointed in what they find. “We have analyzed your transmissions,” the vocoded digi-translator says. “We are hoping to contact the people of Aurelius, Plato, Nietzsche and the first Morbid Angel album.”

Sadly there is no one here who can help them. The old Romans are dead, the ancient Greeks long gone, even the days when philosophers wrote about real topics are over, and Morbid Angel have ventured on to different goals and styles. If the aliens came looking for old school death metal, they’d find themselves presented with over a million options, very few of which resembled the glory of what once was.

Haven in Shadows – “Legend of the Wolf” and “Moments of Honour”
Rather than the more exoteric approach favored by other bands, these releases attempt to answer the question posed by the original wave of black metal: “What have we forgotten and how can we recall it?” Meditative at heart, this is something lost within the current generation of black metal and is worth rediscovering again.

Morfin – Inoculation

Morfin emerge from the potent musical texture of the late 1980s and the transitional era between speed metal and death metal where Sepultura, Destruction, Kreator and Sadus ruled the day. This period was known for its tendency to wrap up a diverse influences under a speed/death banner and make music that straddled the genres, which often produced a potent ferment of riffcraft but left songwriting behind as it tried to balance many diverse elements in the same band.

Oration of Disorder reviews 01-19-14

What’s an oration of disorder? What most people think of as “order” consists in telling other people what they want to hear and then manipulating them. That’s how you sell them products. But the selling of products is the opposite of what art and listeners need, which is a harsh voice to tell us the truth.

A couple of metal trolls

The absurdity of pro-democracy propaganda

The unwashed herd loves to think the world is like a movie. See, there's this gang of Nazi guys who just decide to do evil stuff to be jerks. And then there's freedom team that fought them. So if we want to make everyone get that rush of self-righteous indignation and feeling victimized by our current governments, we put some Nazi on a card with some incriminating quote and use that to start the circlejerk about "You Gotta Fight For Your Right (To Party)" or the political equivalent thereof. Never mind that Mengele was a concentration camp doctor and had zero in common with Nazi high command. If it gets the crowd clapping their fetus hands and chanting slogans about freedom, it's a good day for democracy.
