Dutch Daily News 02/12/2013: Guess Who’s Coming To Pinkpop?

Greetings, lovers of Dutchness. It is I, Frank, with your daily dose of Dutch news.

In light of recent scandals about the NSA’s eavesdropping, DutchReview recently recommended you to start all of your telephone conversations with the words: “ALLUHA AKHBAR! DEATH TO ALL INFIDELS!!!”, no matter who you are calling or what the conversation is about. (We also placed a disclaimer stating that we take no responsibility for any of the consequences). Well from the looks of it, your fun is about to double, because some commissions think that the AIVD, the Dutch *cough* Secret *cough* Service should get even more privileges. In their own words, the intelligence agencies should be licenced for ongericht ‘verkennen en analyseren’ of Internet traffic, which translates to as much as: “exploring and analyzing without guidance/supervision”. You’ll notice that this is so vague that it’s basically giving them a blank check to spy on literally anyones business. Sorry guys, but cleaning your browser history by the end of the evening isn’t good enough anymore.

Some say that in these days, the general public (aka ‘sheeple’) are deliberately kept stupid by the government who gives them decadent and comfortable lives with an endless supply of shallow entertainment, all used as a means to cover up the blatantly obvious abuse of power that the New World Order… HOLY SHIT, LOOK WHO’S COMING TO PINKPOP FESTIVAL NEXT YEAR!!!

As part of their Metallica By Request tour, named so because buying a tickets means being able to vote on the set-list, Metallica will be visiting the legendary Pinkpop Festival in June of 2014. Awesome!

Wait, what was I talking about again?
