  1. Talent or stupidity?

    Driving along edgeware road I saw cyclist weaving about zooming through red lights nearly hit a parked van. Typical cyclist you might think then I realised he was texting on his phone as he rode along. My dilemma? Do I admire the dexterity and multitasking skills or wonder at the unbelievable...

  2. Sorry Bruv

    What I said to you about Fred Trump. He was a bastard too, although he did build housing for the middle class primarily as I told you, he was no hero. He was a racist rat, but at the time, since the people I knew were benefiting, I didn't realize that blacks were directly discriminated against. ...

  4. Cool What Is A Good Age To Retire?

    I always planned to retire before age 60 and did so at age 58. I waited until age 62 to take a company pension and Social Security. From age 58 till then I lived on investment income. I am quite comfortable now with The pension & Social Security and do not need at this point to use investments for...

  5. Oaklahoma And Marriage

    If Runamucklicans have their way nonbelievers will need to go out of the state to marry. Oklahoma is banning atheists from getting married - Americas - World - The Independent (

  6. Limits on Privacy

    My last job in California made a new rule. Due to a just passed privacy law, we were not allowed to discuss private matters between each other on company property. They were scared, did not know exactly what the law meant. After hello, do now ask "how are you"? We had an obviously pregnant lady,...

  7. The Common People

    My own opinion, for what little it might be worth, is that we should take a step forward and form a future government by means of the established democratic process rather than pouring water over the duck's back. Then it's not "them" any longer, and we can make the appropriate changes. I have,...

  8. Pretoria schoolgirl stabbed to death, hands hacked off

    I don't know guy's but I read stories like this and it further ads to my not caring about capital punishment. I sincerely find absolutely no use in keeping around any animal capable of doing anything remotely close to this. A complete and utter waste of resources that people should not be forced to...

  9. Manual cars Keep coming across videos like this. Just wondering are manual cars really so unusual in America nowadays? Over here it's mainly OAP's that buy automatics hence the term granny cars. Have to drive automatic lorries personally I dislike them intensely.

  12. He should be able to sue the private man since he can't sue the President.

    I thought, at the time, that Obama overstepped. That the Justice Dept did not bring any charges, isn't even the issue, IMO. The guy was tried, found not guilty and then had to put up with an attempt to convict him again through a 'civil rights' investigation. Not guilty should have been the end of...

  14. Someone Has to Stop these Politicians

    This isn't even funny any more. The notion of mandatory voting just turns my stomach. How would they enforce this one? If I go into the polling booth and don't mark the ballot - how do they know? And if they would know, there goes the right to not saying how you voted. We need the government...

  15. Paedophile group in very high places, in UK.

    Yes I believe a lot of us are aware that PM Edward Heath seemed to 'treat' young children to trips in his yacht from the Isle of Jersey, in the 70's. These were mostly lads from an orphanage on the island. Strange that there doesn't appear to be records of a lot of these lads returning to the...

  16. Nationalism and nationality ?

    I read through this and was agreeing most of the way, then it turned into a bit of a loony rant. I can follow the logic and agree with much of it, and suddenly all the authors logic goes out the window. Not for those with a short attention myself.
