Oct 16, 2010 - @grahamkeithtodd You think the UK is fair. The UK is a jail system. You can't own a firearm to protect yourself. And supporting a monarchy, on the 21st century? Come on. That place is a joke. It is one of the govts that helped the US with the invasions and occupations of foreign nations. But lets not drift off topic. We were discussing secession. "No one in the US believes secession is a good idea"? That's not true, but if it was, do you have the balls or the brains to refute that?

Oct 14, 2010 - What we need is cameras and press at Bilderberg meetings, instead of "closed" meetings where these major corporations get to pay off under-the-table bribes to politicians. What ever happened to freedom of press?

Brian Murphy Says:

Oct 29, 2010 - Campaign finance reform is one of the worst things that has happened to our democracy in 100 years. This is just ONE story that is known, and if it does not chill you to your core....i don't know what would.

noyouaintgettingit Says:

Oct 14, 2010 - By the way? Obama attended Bilderberg with Hillary in 2008!! Its true!

Dec 13, 2010 - TruthAndMoreTruth people are getting smarter. NOW money goes into fear and hate but back in the day we'd pay THEM to get filled with fear and hate (ie Churches although some people still do it) now a lot of the population is on to their game.... MAN if they would have foreseen their "propaganda machine" (television) backfiring in the future we STILL wouldn't have TV's Good thing they never anticipated the internet newscorp bought myspace which primarily targets the new generation AND IT Begins

Nov 12, 2010 - @Hatredthopter I think Jasonhenchmenn brings up a good point. When I pull up the politics section all I see is TYT, and MSNBC. There is no conspiracy but obviously bias. I happen to like Cenk, and starting to like Dylan, but obviously bias is present. This just means I now have to go elsewhere for news.

Oct 18, 2010 - @asperin anyway i for one would NOT want you or ANY ONE to own a AK-47(no MATTER WHICH COUNTRY IT WAS MADE IN!) (oh yes it is vital to owe a weapon that fires the whole mag off in under 5 seconds and does not hit the target most of the time!)

Oct 16, 2010 - @CommonSenseJoe ur dumb. of course people who want contribute want something in return. u think BP is skimping all corners on the clean up recovery, but then donates money to politicians in good will? gimme a break. u have 0 common sense and are a huge tool for making such a ridiculouslyun-applicable username

Graham Keith Todd Says:

Oct 19, 2010 - @asperin to be honist i WOULD love the British army to use the Russian AK47(or even the "newish" AK-74 as they are a damn sight more relabile then the current lump of shit the british goverment has lumbered the British army with(i am refuring to that crappy weapon the S.A..80(mk4) a truely shity weapon to say the least! i should know i was in the british army for 9 years! but the AK 47 IS a millirty weapon and should NOT be in the hands of civies!

Graham Keith Todd Says:

Oct 18, 2010 - @asperin i made a small but vital mistake in one of my posts it was HUNGERFORD not Gilford when Michile Ryan went on his rampage the pedo was in a small scotish town called Dunblain look then up

Alexwozere Says:

Oct 15, 2010 - @slackologist couldn't agree more, and this goes for every democracy worldwide but it is very true in the US.

CommonSenseJoe Says:

Oct 16, 2010 - @sportsdrb BP is skimping? They are paying more money to these people than they would have made working. They are getting scammed big time. It is anther Katrina deal. The reason businesses donate is to keep the government from destroying their businesses. It is the biggest legal protection scheme out there.

Frank Wilson Says:

Oct 14, 2010 - demint started the recession lol

Graham Keith Todd Says:

Oct 18, 2010 - @asperin right now your idiots in the US are opting for FEAR to rule there lives! "oh these nasty men will take away our guns/health care/liberty/dogs!" "oh Obama is a Muslin/Kenyan/commie/nazi" "oh we want inderpendance/secession from the union/pie in the sky" in short you are proposing the VERY THING that the old USSR wanted to do to the USA years ago! remember in unions there IS strength! if you broke up the USA into small parts how long would they last? not very!

Oct 14, 2010 - @frictionRx5 good sir, i want to bring it to your attention that the word you are using is pronounced fanboy, not fanboi. i find it of the utmost importance that one uses proper grammar and spelling. now if you mind i have to go and fetch my tophat from the dry-cleaners.
