Did you?

Anyway, the government is the final arbiter in these matters. The people only exist to pay the taxes to keep the government in power.

Rally all you want, just be sure to look into the camera eye, a good, digital scan of your face is what they need to round you up at a later date.

PS - China excess population is moving to your country, get used to it.

The baby is laughing and smiling at the end of the clip, but the video has attracted criticism from child-welfare advocates because of how vigorously the man swings the baby by its arms.

If the baby is laughing, it wasn't abuse.

I'd like to see it.
Truth is a pathless land.

I read some forum posts which suggested that the video was originally from Russia and the baby was a member of a circus family - which sounds like a reasonable explanation. I remember my Dad used to swing me around rather vigorously when I was a kid and it was absolutely exhilarating. I'm too big for that now, the closest I could probably come now is something like this.

'Man flu' should be renamed 'woman flu'

In a survey of 2,000 people, 85 per cent of women admitted exaggerating their symptoms to gain sympathy compared to just 76 per cent of men.

Gladeana McMahon, consultant psychotherapist said the findings were surprising because men had a tendency to talk more about their illnesses. She said: "Women tend to talk more about their feelings generally, but men it seems, appear to vocalise more when they're sick - that's where the myth around 'man' flu originated.


Or perhaps one talks more about feelings only because one is sick and desires relief, and only because of that. Or as Douglas Adams joked about humans in general: if they don't keep on exercising their lips, their brains start working. Ouch!

Re: USA Doomed

Postby mansman » Thu Dec 25, 2008 3:09 am

Recent, to me at least, statistic: Guess which develop country has highest rate of teen pregnancy and/or babies born to.
I give clues.
Try to guess this tough one.

Its not one that has not allowed abortion.
Its not one in which abortion has only recently been allowed.
Its not one in which condoms or clinics is a shortage.
Its not one in which little girls arnt taught about birth prevention.
(figure it out yet?)

ok,
Its got thousands of doctors able and willing to suck out unwanted fetuses of varrying ages.
Its obsessed with freedom for EVERYONE (...with whom it agrees with, that is).
OK, OK, your not going to get it so I do tell you, beleive or not its America, the United States of!


Well Im going to say it my observation is long enough now, the fate of this country is all but hopeless.
What we got?
Ok, the men and women are all mixed up, never will that go in reverse. All mixed up in the school, in the work, in the Congress, all over mixed up.
This means if one person realize what is main problem (MP) and how to correct problem, and any large group disagree, cannot dare to speak up that one person, and situation remain same, time bomb.
And if large group of people think they know what is problem and how to fix MP but other large group disagree again nothing can be remedy, time bomb.

Also, if a large group (FG) convince another large group (SG) that THEY (SG) are the problem, and the first group is wrong, then no matter how all cooperate nothing will improve, time bomb. And if one from SG persuade one or two from FG that they are wrong about the problem and even are the ones CAUSING the problem nothing again change, all few aware will be thrown aside, time bomb.

Once the vinegar is poured into the oil impossible to get it to leave without extreme measures, right?
So situation is hopeless.

More than this, here in this country those whith a chance to discover the problem have been dumbed down many decades so they think solution to MP is more-or-less evenly distribute, and if not so- and is not so- again, swimming up river but all get nowhere, time bomb. Boom.
So I ask how can turn trend around, I say not going to happen without involuntary revolution.

Those not have access to much American TV, may interest you to know that crisises in families so severe here that county has commissioned Brittish Nannies and dog trainers to teach millions of people their parental mistakes by way of television. No joke. They could not find any one here to teach these families or their pets, no one they would accept the hard truth from, no one willing to risk reputation and status and friendship not to mention precious free time. What Ive seen poor victimized children with mostly mothers who had no business ever being a mother in the first place. And there are millions coming to fill their shoes! The future looks very very grim for this country. Not even an Obama can save them.
I see parents mostly mothers who end up damaging their kids far more than any one deviant horny stranger ever could, yet the stranger often gets 5 to 10, mom and her partner get off scot free. Poor girl goes on to reck her own fatherless daughters in time, while the boys are fit for nothing honorable outside of carrying a machine gun and grenades, ending in a like of physical or psychological tragedy too. George Bush's fix, this is.

What happens if those least able to accept responsibility are most responsible.
Who can break it to them.
He will be replaced.

I dont think foreigners who dont spend much time here and for practical purposes become one of us, can ever know how desperate the situation is.
I could compare say with other english speaking developed country-
those in the know know that the entire world is frucked up, some more so than others.
How should we compare, by factors? a pie chart? sure

Frucked-up scale

Wise men in Europe might say Britiain has a "long" way to go.
If so then quite honestly this USA has a long,long,long,long,long way to go.
Too long, in fact.

Its going to get ugly, hope im dead by then.
We're going to need thousands more intelligent nannies, indefinitely.

I cant turn the TV on but 5 minutes without cringing, and thats without dialing the news.

The contrast, in dialog, in behavior, in ideas, in attitudes, in countenance, in discipline, in exxpression, in every way the contrast with any other peoples is extreme and deeply disheartening.

What a relief to tune into say BBC for a bit. Just to taste a modicum of sense.

AND! The best of America is here, right there in that TV set. The scouts have screened the country for decades and tempted most of the most interesting, well-adjusted, beautiful, confident, and educated Americans into the hollywood life!
Where life is easy and fun and money-filled.
Some of the cream heed the call to hiigher things to country and the world but only a few.

enuf said, pass the kleenix.

I hope the cops are able to charge as many of those morons as possible.

You just know no ones going to pay for that lost life and suffering, unless some idiot yelled "run em down people!" thell be no real consequences though an attempt may be made for appearances sake.

At this point in time the people could-give-2-shits-about-others more than ever before. They know they cant get along, that caring is temporary for them. In business circles deception and taking advantage of those more vulnerable, stupid, uninformed and more trusting than YOUrself is now completely ethical, part of good business in practice though not taught explicitly. This runs over into all other relations. Even members of same families consider loyalty up for auction, each is ultimately on their own friends are bought with dollars and twat.
Barely possible to make a friend so untrusting people of this nation have become. After all, the movies demonstrate that every male if given the chance would relish harming any female, its in our basic nature dont you know?
Im amazed how many men still marry, unaware or unwilling to accept that the vast majority of their girlfriends respect them less than household pets are respected. No joke, Ive been paying attention, id say like 90% or more.
Once in a great while you might see the rare well-raised wife or girl lucky to have an adoring intelligent dad and mom.
Most of these however are lost to the gods of religion or to celebrity life.

If ever you happen to spot a woman who respects and accurately appreciates the men in her life, 9 out of 10 times she wont be American made, Who is just too confused and suffering too much to be available to others except to beat bordem or provide distraction. This is what happens when millions of men for some half a century completely turn over the family reigns to their mate. Its like a slow unnoticeable death sentence. And you cant blame women unless her name is Destiny.

This nation has only lasted as long as it has because of its size and resources. If the New World were limited to say the size and capacity of New England we would have come apart, and been restored (at least once or twice), long ago.
And Id now be living in relative paradise!
Cripes!!
