Looks like I’ll be taking it off my favorites list. Went last year to visit friends
and nothing seemed amiss.......

Swiss vote FOR gun control. What it means is less certain at the moment.
I'll see if any of our friends there know the outcome....

I used to admire the Swiss and their independent way of doing things compared to the rest of Europe. Citizen soldiers kept their weapons and ammo in their homes and were encouraged to visit gov't firing ranges to keep in practice.

But it looks like the Swiss are now becoming more like the rest of the Euro weenie nations. More and more gun control and fewer individual rights.

And so it goes.

Actually, the vote went 64% in favor of the gun control. The *reason* for this is that the EU (which the Swiss are NOT part of...) threatened to eject the Swiss from the economic Schengen zone if they did NOT pass the new restrictions.

Hit people where they live (buy bread...), and they'll do a LOT of bad things. This is only one early example of what is coming down the pike.

Yup...

And it's not like we haven't seen people sell their freedom down the pike before, you know (just watch US domestic news if you want to see it happening here)...

They are all making it easy for the russians to invade. I hope they don't think that we will bail them out a third time.

Hmm, let see: own a semi? no medicare for you, or a steep convenience premium added..

Or mybe a ss deduction to offset liabilty costs..

or maybe none of the above for you if you own things not in their agenda.

bet on it.

My guess is 55-60% will vote the same way here in 10 years. Plenty of new voters coming in every day.

Well now....we’ll see what the 35% that voted against have to say when they come for the goods. There was already a motion in play to stop the military from storing ammo in soldiers homes.....ie guns one place ammo at the armory.

Once a population is infected with the Ashke-nazi-Bank$ter Virus, falling Testosterone levels are sure to follow. The Swiss held out the longest of the Euro-weenies, but, alas, have voted for self-castration. Pity.

Be assured, we will bail them out a third time unless we can break the stranglehold the international banksters (i.e., the Swiss) have on our leadership.

The Donald is working it but there's a lot left to do.

Swiss catch way to much flak over Banking bubs

Austria is actually larger in this, Lichtenstein is huge, pretty sure the principality of San Marino in Italy is still a big player.
Actually most of those have for centuries been underwritten by the Vatican bank...the real power player in Euro finance

These days there are even more involved

The Swiss used to be big but as early as the 70s they started giving banking data to our DOJ, same with Monaco
That opened up banking in the Carribean.
Bahamas was rock solid for awhile, they started giving up deposit data. After that Grenada became a new secure banking sector, that's why we invaded it.

These days smart money is on chartering International "banks" in Polynesia. Don't cost much, near zero government oversite. Bunch based there, just a damn office in some island hut. Same with multi national corporations. Sort of like why so many commercial ships fly Liberian flags

Reason we invaded Grenada is it was where the Columbian Cartels banked. Account transfers there was what our unlawful prosecution of Noriega was based upon after we invaded Panama based on a garbage DEA indictment out of Miami.
the real shits of it all was that American servicemen were used to push stupid Regans war on drugs horseshit under the lies of fighting Communist influence and protecting a handful of Americans on Grenada at a Medical school diploma mill

and yet some see all this as some vast Jewy Conspiracy to control the Goy

Col Bubby wants to believe that the Swiss, all 8 million of them run the world and are behind every evil.
