    hearings on the radicalization if Muslim-Americans

    So if you know that 1 out of every 100 people is a thief, do you lock up 100 people and claim you have successfully cut crime? McCarthyism was just the Spanish Inquisition without the torture instruments.

    hearings on the radicalization if Muslim-Americans

    This is one of my patented rants, which will contain strong swearing. So I'll spoiler tag it to avoid accidentally offending.

    Fuck you, England. Just fuck you.

    Actually, this is Westminster Council, who don't have to save money because of the cuts. They pull in more money in business rates than Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle combined. Now the thing with business rates is, the majority of the income gets pooled nationwide into the central pot...

    Unborn Child To 'Testify' On Ohio Abortion Bill

    I know, but what the anti-abortion mob seem to think is that by changing the law, abortions will stop. They won't. They'll just go underground, or to Canada, Mexico or whatever. Ireland has a ban on abortion to this day. However, in 1992, they changed the Constitution to allow people to...

    Unborn Child To 'Testify' On Ohio Abortion Bill

    We once hung a monkey as a French spy. So the US is only 200 or so years behind the times. I do love the idea that if you outlaw abortion, it will magically stop. I mean, that worked really well with drugs, didn't it?

    Liked the 959 vs F40, made me feel like I was 14 again. Had to mute the Prescott interview - the crowd were just complete twats and it turned into pantomime with Prescott playing the big bad villain.

    If there is only 15% of the workforce unionised (not even 15% of the electorate, but 15% of the workforce), why is the Governor spending so much time and money trying to break it? (Rhetorical question.)

    And the Phelps thing, Anonymous have come out and said it is a publicity stunt, nothing to do with them and most likely Phelps trying to harvest IPs from the LOIC in order to sue.

    Middle East and North Africa Unrest

    Actually, and I can't believe I'm agreeing with jetsetter on something, but if there was some way of doing an airstrike accurately and if it was agreed properly and quickly via correct diplomatic channels in the UN then it would probably help the situation. I'm not talking invasion, I'm talking...

    So what you are saying is that despite the overwhelming evidence and proof available, you won't believe any of it. And people wonder why Birthers are considered idiots.

    Can't find the name just yet, but it is from The Hunt For Red October soundtrack. Edit: Appears to be Basil Poledouris - The Hymn for Red October. Based on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPsL2WVhFCc (about 2.39 in)

    They played Terrorvision on Top Gear. Yay! Best. Happy band. Ever. (Stig was driving around to Tequila). Rather enjoyed that episode. The cocking about I didn't care much for, but I did like the SIARPC (for once, usually bored, seemed a fun interview) and the M3/RS5 was worth it just to say...

    The best double standard is Sarah Palin attacking Michell Obama over her breastfeeding plan. Clearly not the same Sarah Palin who said, in 2007, "NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sarah Palin, Governor of the State of Alaska, do hereby proclaim October 2007 as: Breastfeeding Awareness Month in Alaska, and...

    It seems the Republican leader in Wisconsin sent State Troopers to the house of the Democrat leader to remind him of his obligations. Apparently freedom to do what you want - including freedom of movement - doesn't apply in all cases, then.

    Well, the Chancellor of Vodafone strikes again! The day Vodafone UK were let off a possible ?6bn tax bill, Osborne was at a Vodafone India launch in that country.
