How many times have we heard my favourite political bullshit line - ‘This should never happen again’ They said this, our politicians after every single slaughter that they failed to intervene in - and here we go again in Syria.
Russia is a disgrace, we all know they are in bed with Assad - so forget those ’ we are virtuous’ to care - they slaughter their own people and other nations in the name of ‘anti terrorism’ drives.
China, that well known bastion of human rights will never let their financial strangle hold on the west (our own fault) go and certainly not when there is oil and other resources involved.
Our politicians in the West are cowards who hide behind cliche and words - I am sick of the lot of them - ARM THE SYRIAN FREE ARMY - at least it will be a fair slaughter!
Kofi Annan, nice try mate - but when was anyone going to give a shit whilst their riches are being threatened?
I will miss you forever, you were special, a son a friend, always warm and giving, always forgiving. My son, my friend - my loss will live inside forever, but my heart swells with love and peace for having known you.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard- Australia
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..
Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave It.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ’
‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’
‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society … Learn the language!’
‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’
‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’
‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’
‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So ACCEPT the country YOU accepted.’
Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada UK & USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.
If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know
The gorgeous Misha Collins - I overheard one of the stewards stating that Misha was determined to get everyone a photo that had paid for one! Good on him!

None of our politicians get it. They all talk the party line, they all try to sound as if they care, but ultimately they don’t. They get into politics to ‘change’ things yet they change absolutely nothing. Status quo remains - the rich remain rich, wages are decreasing as inflation rises and why? Well, apparently we borrowed too much and oil prices are rising so petrol is rising giving that knock on affect to everything delivered.
What have politicians done about this? Nothing, they claim they have our best interests in mind but they don’t - they have the status quo in mind. Wages for the working classes are lower than ever, who cares about this country more than those who live in it and those who have to watch as the decay mounts up around them. We pay so much tax that we rarely have disposable income, and when we do have disposable income we pay VAT on everything - inheritance tax - tax on money already taxed. It is sickening to think that millionaires on all sides of the house are residing over the entire decline of our country both in morality and in monetary sense.
Are they paid more than many people will earn in their lives? Yes - are they paid expenses, yes. How much does our Parliament cost us? Including the House of Lords, do we know? I think it is time a concerted effort began to change the way our society functions. Someone somewhere needs to start leading, because we’re not given leadership that matters, we’re not given inspirational leadership of those that understand where we come from.
We need to start asking more and more questions and demanding referendums to stop politicians doing whatever they want with our money. Including Europe, overseas aid and everything else - they place their morality on us, their guilt at their millions on us and giveaway money to other countries that could be helping our sick, our poor, our elderly. Just because we’re not starving doesn’t mean we’re not struggling.
What were the causes? Some say the uneducated ranting and bias against those that have or own a business as being ‘rich’ so they deserve it. It was according to two females who hope more follows, it was ‘good though it’s the governments fault. They want to show everyone they can do whatever they want.
According to others it must be the fault of the Conservatives because I can only imagine they believe Tory = rich and entitled, and then we have the section that believes we’re failing the youth by offering them nothing.
I did not see anyone wearing rags or too thin weak and deprived to riot. They fail to realise that many businesses struggle to survive and those businesses employ people, when those businesses are wrecked then their parents and people like them do not have jobs!
I am not curious as someone suggests we should be. I find the mentality of people in general does not assist in the behaviour they teach children. There is too much provision and putting in front of the television for convenience. It is so easy to blame everyone but those that instil such poor values into the young people and allow them to be outside and unsupervised at times when they ought to be inside – the care factor comes from parents. It also comes from a lack of fostering for children in need.
This stems from society’s rules and regulations. Consider a society that provides a basic role in the community for those young people on benefits. We have litter all over the place, some or most of it can be recycled, why not organise them to do this – then to spend time learning different skills within the council community. When temps are used for basic skills should the consideration not be to bring in young people?
All these deprived kids who took part in the riots seem to have access to the internet, carry mobile phones and seem intent on damage rather than finding something constructive to do and again I look back at parents. The teachers are unable to discipline for fear of human rights accusations being directed, and those parents that want to discipline are criminalised for doing so. We talk about criminalising youth, why don’t we talk about why they are criminalised? What kind of message does it send when we plonk them in front of televisions? Far too many mothers dropping off their young children are smoking, parking wherever they like and basically swearing like troopers. The chit chat and gossip all conspire to teach children about the behaviour that is ultimately detrimental. It is time parents were taught about their habits and behaviours and the affect it has on children around them.
People who behave like they have no stake in anything should be made to have a stake and clean up the mess they make. Smart mouthing should be stopped, anyone swearing on the street asked to stop, general standards need to be raised in order to stop the absolute disrespect we witness day in and day out from everyone.
Listening to Boris Johnson talk, the rude yelling idiots asking him questions and trying to make themselves heard rather than waiting to be asked just show why we have such a poor society.
Listen to the black youth, we’re hearing being shouted – why? They have nothing to say whatsoever, most of them talk like little hoods because they think it is cool, cannot use basic English correctly and most seem to think walking around in hoodies is acceptable. Standards have dropped, what we expect from ourselves in terms of manners has stopped. I am working class person who was inspired by my own need to understand and learn.
Look at our politics, blame game central – the entire country spends most of its time listening to the political classes ranting and raving about who did what when, and who is to blame. When do we get leadership not just from one of the parties but all of them? It is surely time to start the debate at the top as well as the bottom.
It is time we structured pay better – that those at the top were unable to claim millions or even hundreds of thousands a year whilst people who are essential to our lives are paid less than £15000 a year for cleaning streets and shifting our rubbish. Give it some thought.
Labour vs Conservatives? Think again, it is propaganda vs common sense and it is high time we changed it.
